A First Impression Of 9/11

Professionally Opinionated,

Donald Trump Interview: 9/11/01: "It wasn't architectural defect. The World Trade Center was always known as a very very strong building. Don't forget that took a big bomb in the basement (1993). Now, the basement is the most vulnerable place because that's your foundation and it withstood that and I got to see that area about three or four days after took place because one of my structural engineers actually took me for a tour because he did the building and I said "I can't believe it".  The the building was standing solid and half of the columns were blown out.  This was an unbelievably powerful building.  If you don't know anything about structure it was one of the first buildings that was built from the outside.  The steel, the reason the World Trade Center had such narrow windows is that in between all the windows, you had the steel on the outside, the steel on the outside of the building. That's why when I first looked - and you had these big heavy i-beams.  When I first looked at it, I couldn't believe it, because there was a hole in the steel and this is steel that was, you remember the width of the windows of the World Trade Center folks.  I think you know if you were ever up there, they were quite narrow and in between was this heavy steel.  I said how could a plane, even a plane, even a 767 or 747 or whatever it might have been, how could it possibly go through this steel? I happen to think that they had not only a plane but they had bombs that exploded almost simultaneously, because I just can't imagine anything being able to go through that wall.  Most buildings are built with the steel on the inside around the elevator shaft.  This one was built from the outside which is the strongest structure you can have and it was almost just like a can of soup."     Donald Trump: "Right.  I just think that there was a plane with more than just fuel.  I think obviously they were very big planes. They were going very rapidly, because I was also watching where the plane seemed to be not only going fast it seems to be coming down into the building.  So is getting the speed from going down hill so to speak. It just seemed to me that to do that kind of destruction is even more than a big plane because you're talking about talking about steel, the heaviest caliber steel that was used on the building.  These buildings were rock-solid and you know it's just an amazing amazing thing. This country is different today and it's going to be different than it ever was for many years to come."  (Thanks, Cat)

Artificial Intelligence (but pretty smart, and considers a LOT of  opinions) computer/program, which has been getting good at political predictions, based on electronic communications "chatter" says Donald Trump will win big in the voting on 11/8/16.

If I were the Clintons, Bush family, or Obama family, and might be indicted by a Trump administration, this would (rightly) worry me. There are many others in the US and foreign countries who played a part in this massive false-flag attack, which allowed the forever-war to start. The forever war, the drone strikes, the renditions, and so much of what has been done in these 15 years are deeply immoral and illegal and punishable by death after conviction in American courts of law. Are the Obamas, Clintons and Bushes going to leave the US for countries which do not have extradition treaties with us?

Paul Craig Roberts: "Trump attacks the Oligarchy so strongly that it is hard to believe that Trump isn’t real. Trump is asking for a bullet like John F. Kennedy, like Robert Kennedy, like Martin Luther King, like George Wallace."

Charles Hugh Smith surmises that a rationalist faction of the "deep-state" is finished with the neocon agenda of total dominance through endless slaughter, and is taking-out the neocon team, starting with Clinton, to avert national disaster.     "These blast points on Hillary's campaign... too accurate for the Mainstream Media. Only the forces of the Imperial Deep State are so precise."

The FBI now has that warrant to search the emails on Huma Abedin and Anthony Wiener's laptop. They've probably got a good start on the job unofficially, so Hillary Clinton may get her request of their revealing everything pretty soon. I think we may all agree on this point.

In their initial review of the laptop, the metadata showed many messages,apparently in the thousands, that were either sent to or from the private email server at Mrs. Clinton’s home that had been the focus of so much investigative effort for the FBI.

James Comey revived the investigation of Clinton's email server as he could no longer resist mounting pressure by mutinous agents, sources say.
  •  The atmosphere at the FBI has been toxic ever since Jim announced last July that he wouldn't recommend an indictment against Hillary.
  •  He told his wife that he was depressed by the stack of resignation letters piling up on his desk from disaffected agents.
  • Comey was also worried that Republicans would accuse him of granting Hillary political favoritism after the presidential election. 
  •   'Some people, including department heads, stopped talking to Jim, and even ignored his greetings when they passed him in the hall,' said the source. 'They felt that he betrayed them and brought disgrace on the bureau by letting Hillary off with a slap on the wrist.'

  • Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan says the government will soon submit a bill to Parliament to reinstate the death penalty amid calls for the execution of the plotters of a failed coup in July. Addressing crowds in Ankara on Saturday, Erdogan said he would ratify such a bill once it passed despite any objections it might spark in the West. 
    Turkey fires another 10,000 civil servants in post-coup purge. 35,000 suspects remain in custody. ("The possibilities are endless", but Stalin, Mao and so many others have set the bar so very high, already.)
    US Dept of State orders families of employees in Istanbul to leave the country. (What? Something's up?)
    "When The Mob Owned Cuba" is an engaging Smithsonian article presented here. Meyer Lanskey and Lucky Luciano saw themselves as officers of important multinational corporations, which is how officers of multinational corporations usually see themselves. (There's some kind of parallel here that I'm reaching for. I'm sure of it.)
    "Why Humans (driving cars) Should Bully Driverless Cars". Unlike the military drones that are now so prolifically dealing death to anybody in the general vicinity of a suspected target of the US military, driverless cars are programmed to avoid harm to any human, in any way possible. You can play chicken with them. You can cut them off. This article takes the entertaining stance of advocacy for robot-bullying, but it does lay out some difficulties we can expect to arise in the transition period when there are people AND robots driving. (When the Google cars were here a lot in 2014-2015, maybe early 2016, they spent a lot of time on my bike commute routes, which I think was purposeful. One time, at a 4 way-stop. I was track-standing, awaiting my turn to go, but it was the self-driving car's turn first. I realized that it could not possibly go with me track-standing, so I had to cross the intersection out of turn. I wasn't a bully, though...)
    Standing Rock Sioux tribal police apprehended a man unharmed, after he tried to infiltrate water-protectors and instigate violence, an agent-provocateur, employed by the pipeline company.  “An armed security agent employed by the company behind the controversial Dakota Access Pipeline was arrested Thursday after he was caught entering the camp of activists protesting near the Standing Rock Indian Reservation in southern North Dakota. After a car chase and a standoff during which he allegedly pointed his assault rifle at a local Sioux teenager, the man, whose ID indicated he was an employee of Dakota Access LLC, was arrested and handed over to the FBI.”
