On Saturday it will be 20 years from one of the most significant events in human history. 9/11.

You know where you were. You know what you were wearing, who you were with, and what you were doing. You, like millions of others stared at your TV screen, with both wonder and fear, remorse and sadness. It couldn’t be… but…it was.

Despite it being 20 years ago, I can tick off damn near every hour of that day. It was a bright clear crisp September morning. Despite owning the bayfront house in Tuckerton, NJ, we were still living on top of a mountain in the Pocono’s of PA for the school year. I had turned the basement into two parts. One part was the theatre room, where I had a wood stove, a couch, two recliners, an 8 foot screen, and a massive Dolby surround set up.

The other side I had constructed as my office. A giant U shaped desk where both I and my assistant would work from. It had your standard office equipment, several computers, several printers, rolling chairs, etc.

It was that office space where I would conduct my morning writing and get ready for trading the markets. Standard even to this day, was to have CNBC  on one TV, maybe Bloomberg on another, as I’d listen to the talking heads lie about things, and get on with my morning.

I was literally watching CNBC, when the first mentions of something happening hit the wires. Their lead talking head was a guy named Mark Haines, and I have to tell you, he did a magnificent job of orating the situation. Before being a shill for CNBC he’d been a lawyer and you could tell that his courtroom experience helped him stay calm while navigating in real time, the fires, the first tower falling, then the second. Considering the stress of the day, not many could have done it better.

Here’s a short clip of that very Mark Haines and his commentary live that fateful morning:

When the first tower went down I called a friend of mine in NY. A doctor. He had been a bit slow that morning, and didn’t have any appointments until noon. I remember yelling “Doc, turn on the TV, the whole damn tower is on the ground!”  He was dumbfounded, asking me if this was some sort of joke. It was indeed, no joke. He was just four  miles from the event.

Everything froze from that minute. I couldn’t be bothered looking at charts or stocks, every second of time was fixed on my TV. When the second tower got hit, it became abundantly clear, this was no accident. We were under attack.

I considered my family’s situation. While at the moment, I didn’t understand who was attacking us, we lived on a mountain in nowhere’sville PA. I felt we were quite safe, but I did fret about folks in major cities. Naturally, we didn’t know if this was going to stop with 2, or 3, or 10 or who knows?

As the morning wore on, we started hearing about the Pentagon crash and the Shanksville crash. Tensions were running high, anxiety was in the air. I called my kids school to ask if there was any directive sent to them, to send kids back home. The reply was “no, we haven’t heard anything like that.”

My office gal asked if she could go home, she felt like she needed to be with her mom and dad. Certainly I said, “right now, being with family might be the most important thing you can do.”

By the time evening arrived, there was a quietness across America. People were in shock. I Left my kids and wife for a little while and drove down to the local bar, to try and get some flavor from the locals. Same thing, lots of people gathered, still starting at the TV, and talking to each other, but almost whisperlike. I heard no loud talking, no shouts at the TV. Quiet, and solemn, almost like being in church. Yet it was a bar in Broadheadsville, PA, not a church.

Each one of you has your own unique story about that day. Some of us lost people we knew in those buildings. Some had family there. Some lived across the river, and wondered if their area was the next target. No matter who you are, 9/11  rattled you in your own way.

When that day was over, America was visibly shaken. The towers were down, the Pentagon was on fire, and a jet went down in PA. Reports started suggesting that Bin Laden was the mastermind behind these hijackings, and it was pushed on every station.

            In the days, weeks and months that followed however, there were problems with the official story concerning the hijackings, and the way the towers came down. Coke snorting, nude bar visiting Muslims, using "box cutters" hijacked modern air liners, and despite failing to learn how to fly a simple Cessna 150 training plane, managed a high speed descending roll into the towers?

            And the towers, which had been designed to absorb a crash by a modern jet liner, fell in freefall speed, straight into its own footprint? And what about building 7? It hadn't been hit by an airplane, and like building 1 and 2, it too fell straight into its own footprint.

            Something, no... a lot of things, started smelling like 10 day fish. There just happened to be a "training" program going on with the military that very day, and the training was about "hijacked airliners???" Yeah. And it just gets worse from there. I think the crown jewel was that in the glowing rubble of a gazillion tons of steel, they "found' the passport, a PAPER passport of one of the hijackers. Uhm, yeah. Right. Sure. You bet.

            The official line about the entire day, is abject bullshit. I didn't even make it a month, frankly about ten days,  and I knew the whole thing was sour. The official story didn't make a lick of sense, not logically and certainly not scientifically. This was NOT Bin Laden in a cave somewhere in Afghanistan, on a cell phone, shutting down our air defenses, while 19 perverted Muslim's with box cutters flew into towers. Sorry.

The towers did NOT come down from the effects of two aircraft flying into them. The towers came down because of controlled demolition. It is such a human tragedy that an event as big as 9/11 could be cooked up, completed, and a fake narrative pushed onto the American population. But they did.

            Why did they do it? Ahh, the grand question of all. For a lot of reasons, but mainly it falls into a few specifics. First they got to roll out their "patriot" act, and start such lunacy as the TSA patting down grandmoms. They got the power in that act, to do any damn thing they want to you, all in the spirit of safety of course.

            Then they also got their "war on terror." A war with no physical enemy, a war that can never end. Unlimited spending on hardware, software and the police state. I could go on and on.

            For any of you that think people like me are conspiracy nuts, and that there were no bombs that took down the towers, you should visit "Architects and Engineers for 9/11 truth. So far, 3,486 engineers have demanded a new investigation into 9/11. Why? Because they all say that the planes did NOT take down those buildings.

            This is a collection of people with about 25,000 years of combined engineering experience of big buildings and they say it didn't happen the way we're told. Interestingly, a new study out of AK University, hit the news in 2019:

            Following an extensive four-year study at the University of Alaska, using four extremely complex computer models, Dr. Leroy Hulsey, Dr. Zhili Quan, and Professor Feng Xiao found the "fire did not cause the collapse".

            In their report, it says: "The principal conclusion of our study is that fire did not cause the collapse of WTC 7 on 9/11, contrary to the conclusions of NIST [National Institute of Standards and Technology] and private engineering firms that studied the collapse.

            "The secondary conclusion of our study is that the collapse of WTC 7 was a global failure involving the near-simultaneous failure of every column in the building."

            Failure of every column in the building? Well, ghee that sounds like controlled demolition, doesn't it? Indeed. In fact, there was NO reason to waste 4 years studying this. Larry Silverstein who bought the trade towers just weeks ahead of the disaster, ( and insured them for about 5 BILLION dollars) said in an interview that he gave the command to "pull it." Pull it, is the verbiage used when they're going to demolish a building. Watch this, it's 58 seconds long.

There it is. He says they gave the command to pull it and he watched the building come down. Let me ask the big question. It takes months to wire a building for demolition. WHY was building 7 wired for demolition? And if 7 was wired for demolition, does it not stand to reason that Tower 1 and 2 were also? Indeed it does.

            My take is that two things were used to take the towers down. I believe nano thermite bombs were used on several of the major support columns, to cut them as in controlled demolition, and I believe several "suitcase" nukes were used in the basements near the main elevator shafts.

            There's hundreds of video's of the actual fire fighters that were in the towers, talking about "explosions" in the basement, explosions above them and below them. Again, the towers didn't come down from two stupid planes filled with kerosene. They came down, because over the years, they had been wired with explosives at the columns.

            The worst part of all this, was that "some people" knew of this plan. They helped put it together, plan it out, and pull it off. And guess what? They didn't give a rats ass about killing 3500 innocent people.

The horror of 9/11 wasn't that Muslim terrorists attacked us. The horror was/is that people in our own nation, supposed "citizens" of the US, knew, helped and even profited from this.

            9/11 is one of the most "in your face" cover ups of all time. As these anniversaries continue to go by, please don't ever buy into their story line. It's simply not true.

For the most part, 9/11 changed our world and NOT for the good. We got such crap as the Patriot act, and those horrendous TSA checkpoints. We got more militarized police, and suddenly everyone became our enemy. Soon enough we were rampaging through Iraq, destabilizing Libya, and poking our nose in every nook and cranny.

            This wasn't by accident.

            I will continue to say my prayers on 9/11 each year. I will write something about it each year. Because that event had me glued to my TV and my phone for the entire day. That event took me on an emotional roller coaster. I experienced sadness, pain, and yes some fear. See, I didn't catch the reruns of the towers falling, I sat there stunned as everyone else, in live time watching them. After the towers and then the Pentagon, I actually feared for what was next. Luckily, that hit didn't happen, and the plane went down in Shanksville,PA. I believe it was shot down. (it was supposed to go to Washington DC)

I lost people I knew that day. Had they been family instead of acquaintances, it would have been a lot rougher on me. My wife and I know a gal that was in the North building that morning. To this day she suffers PTSD. She became a client of ours, needing help around the house. Interestingly, she claims an Angel saved her. Not a fireman, not a policeman, a true Angelic being. I believe her.

            I'll pray for those killed, I pray for those that couldn't bear the heat and instead jumped to their death. I pray for the first responders, and all the families that didn't have a mom or dad come home that day.

            If any of you were directly impacted by that event, my heart goes out to you.

Now, if you want to look at the lunacy of the official story in a simple 5 minute video, you can do no better than this. It is a well-done satirical summary of what “couldn’t be, but was sold to us.”

However, if you want to deep dive into the 9/11 situation, I suggest two things. By all means scour the Architects and Engineers for 9/11 truth website. It’s a treasure trove.

All that said, here’s a link to a 3 part, 4.5 hour long documentary that is by far the most concise, accurate, and indepth account of the “irregularities” of that day and the investigations.

I suggest you start at the 57 minute mark of the first DVD because the beginning could bore you a bit. But from there on, I assure you, you won’t be bored or sidetracked. even has an index, so you can jump to the parts that sound most interesting to you.

Finally, If you really want to snoop on your own, here’s a link to a collection called: Understanding 9-11. It is a collection of every news broadcast from 8 am to 11 pm, from 9/11 to 9/17. There’s some real gems in there, such as the European broadcaster reporting that building 7 had collapsed, while on the screen behind her, it was still standing tall. She got the news a bit too early about its demise. So check this site, it’s interesting for sure:
