The collapse of WTC building 7 – when the alt-media’s ‘bombshells’ turn out to be duds

An article by Matt Agorist was published on The Free Thought Project website today titled Bombshell: CNBC Anchor Admits Building 7 Brought Down in ‘Controlled Implosion’. According to the brief biography for Matt on the same website, he’s “an honorably discharged veteran of the USMC and former intelligence operator directly tasked by the NSA.”

Given that the mainstream media is largely a joke, the alternative media is where many people turn for accurate information, however much of the alt media is often just as biased, shallow and inaccurate as its mainstream counterpart and the aforementioned article is a case in point.

I don’t know for certain why World Trade Center building 7 collapsed and certainly there is evidence to suggest that demolition may have been the culprit, however there is also evidence to suggest that the scenario proposed by NIST (thermal expansion resulting in de-seating a critical support beam), or something along those lines, could also have been the cause of the collapse and that evidence is corroborated in later studies.

Of course most of the alternative media doesn’t want to hear that maybe, just maybe, the government wasn’t lying through their teeth this time regarding the proposed cause of the collapse of WTC 7. They have their minds made up and nothing is going to change that, least of all such inconvenient things like facts and evidence. And if you present such facts and evidence that dispute their narrative, you still lose because they just move the goal post. A missile hit the pentagon you say? Okay, then explain why so many people saw a plane fly toward, or actually strike the building, yet no one saw it fly away. Not being able to provide any reasonable explanation, they simply ignore the question and move the goal post to their next ‘irrefutable’ point, like how a 124 ft. wide plane can’t fit in a 16 ft. hole, which of course it didn’t, unless, that is, you’re one of the dimwits behind the Loose Change series of ‘cartoons’, such as Dylan Avery and Jason Bermas. Bermas, by the way, currently writes for We Are Change, an activist organization headed by the equally dimwitted Luke Rudkowski who ran into a bit of legal trouble after soliciting donations for a legal defense that apparently cost him nothing, and it gets worse from there.

Time and time again a large portion of the alternative media fails to do any real research and, instead, cherry pick evidence that supports their untenable narratives while discarding anything and everything that doesn’t. This conformation bias is why much of the alt media is every bit as unreliable as the mainstream media is, though often for far less nefarious reasons. This is so very frustrating and disappointing because the alternative media needs to be doing it better than the corporate/NSA/CIA/government sponsored clowns that dominate all of the mainstream media.

A prime example of a most embarrassing incident that the so-called 9/11 truther community is happy to omit is that Richard Gage of A&E for 9/11 Truth — an architect, mind you — never bothered to look at the architecture of the Pentagon before promoting the nonsense that AA 77 could not have penetrated 6 reinforced concrete walls which, in fact, it didn’t. The ground floor of the Pentagon has only 2 exterior walls, not 6. Most recently it was Ryan Dawson of ANC Report who pointed this out in his article, 911 Truth for Grown Ups.

But i digress…

In the article posted on The Free Thought Project website, a statement made by CNBC senior analyst and former anchor Ron Insana is at the core of the article and its clickbait headline, however it seems Insana’s statement may not be all it’s been crapped up to be by Matt Agorist. Here’s what Insana said:

Well, remember 7 World Trade had not yet come down. And so when I went down to the [New York Stock] Exchange that Wednesday morning [September 12], I was standing with some military and police officers, and we were looking over in that direction. And if it had come down in the way in which it was tilting, it would have wiped out everything from where it stood to Trinity Church to the Exchange to, effectively, you know, the mouth of the Hudson. And so there were still fears that if that building had fallen sideways, you were going to wipe out a good part of Lower Manhattan. So they did manage for one to take that down in a controlled implosion later on. And the Exchange was up and running the following Monday.

Insana refers to WTC 7 when he begins his statement, but i have to wonder if he made a mistake because it seems he may be referring to a different building later. World Trade Center building 7 was no where near the Hudson and therefore could not have “wiped out everything from where it stood” to “the mouth of the Hudson”, but WTC 1 or 2 could have figuratively inflicted such damage had either fallen sideways. He then states, “So they did manage for one to take that down in a controlled implosion later on”. Why did he use the word “one”? Was he referring to the north tower and not WTC 7?

WTC 7 proximity to Hudson river

These discrepancies are overlooked by Agorist. Furthermore, even if Insana was talking about WTC 7 throughout his statement, Agorist provides no reasonable evidence as to how Insana came to the conclusion that the building was brought down by controlled demolition, though one likely possibility is the fact that news reporters stated that the collapse was reminiscent of a controlled demolition. Agorist quotes an article ostensibly by A&E for 9/11 Truth as supporting evidence, but nothing conclusive can be drawn from it:

Insana’s statement is all the more remarkable because it appears that he is unaware of the debunked official story of Building 7’s collapse […]

So a CNBC senior analyst and former anchor had never heard of the NIST report regarding WTC 7 18 years after the fact? Nonsense!

Lastly, i spent some time with a FDNY fireman who was in the intimidate vicinity of WTC 7 prior to it’s collapse and when i questioned him about the building, he replied without hesitation that he was not at all surprised it had collapsed since fires were raging unabated in the building all afternoon, another fact that the 9/11 truther community omits.

Video: THE RUSSIANS ARE COMING! – Alex Jones’ Y2K Broadcast, Dec. 31, 1999

If you have never heard this, you have to listen to it. This is the perhaps the biggest fear mongering bullshit artist the internet has even known at his finest, inciting fear and apparently attempting to start a riot in the U.S. during the the last day of 1999.

Meet Jake Morphonios, crime fighter, investigator, activist, researcher

The first time i bumped into Jake Morphonios was when i was writing my article on the Vegas-Paddock mass shooting. I tried to be extra careful about what i included in that piece because i wanted it to stand up to scrutiny, so i was hesitant to include Jake’s video, Follow the Money / George Soros – Las Vegas Shooting, because i had no previous knowledge of the guy or what he was really about.

Jake is a brave man, as in one who puts himself in harms way in the interest of service to others. He traveled to Palatinate to document the terror inflicted upon the people of Gaza by the racist terrorist state of Israel, an illegitimate state which he has long been highly critical of. He covered the child sex trafficking industry in Thailand and has worked as a financial crimes investigator for a Fortune 100 bank. He was a writer for the Ron Paul presidential campaigns of 2008 and 2012 and, more recently, uncovered many details of the Israel-Mossad-Epstein child sex trafficking and crime ring. Jake is the Chief Investigator for the Blackstone Intelligence Network which utilizes a vast global network of citizen informants and assets.

You can find Jake on BitChute and his website, Blackstone Intelligence Network.

Jake has produced many podcasts and videos regarding Israel, Jewry, Zionism and Palestine and following is some of his work in that regard.

The ADL, SPLC & the Scourge of Jewish Supremacism

All forms of racism and supremacism are repugnant. None of it should be tolerated. Yet, it seems to many that one form of racist ideology is to be protected and defended: Jewish White Supremacism (JWS). While only a portion of Jewish people are guilty of JWS, the part that are culpable are very powerful and are well-placed in seats of authority inside governments and corporations. This video discusses the issue in a non-inflammatory, fact-based approach.

Trump Bows to Zionists on Illegal Settlements in Palestine

For 71 years, every country on earth has firmly condemned the illegal settlements of Zionist Jews from Israel inside of occupied Palestinian territory. Trump just upended that precedent by catering to the will of Benjamin Netanyahu and the powerful Zionist lobby. Part 1 of 2.

The Impact of DNA Tests on Ashkenazi Claims to Palestine

A Jewish journalist reports on the results of his 23andMe DNA/Genetic testing. He learns that he is 100% Jewish Ashkenazi. But the test also reveals that none of his ancestry is connected to the Jews of the Bible. A lack of blood connection to the Jews who lived in Palestine anciently, negates modern claims on the land by European colonialists.

The 1933 Boycott of Germany vs the BDS Boycott of Israel

In 1933, Jews outside of Germany organized a global boycott of that nation’s goods, despite pleas by Jews within Germany not to do so. This video discusses that historic boycott and how it relates the current #BDS boycott movement against apartheid.

JFK, RFK: All roads lead to Israel

I remember reading somewhere that the anti-Semitic conspiracy theorist will uncover a Jew hiding under every rock he overturns. At first i dismissed the accusation as overreaching, but not anymore, and not because i’m an anti-Semite. The accusation is often based in fact.

Israel’s fingerprints have been lifted from a plethora of significant events throughout history including the manufacturing of evidence to support the homicidal gas chambers in German occupied Europe, the attack upon the USS Liberty and the terrorist attack upon the United States on September 11th, 2001.

As a curious researcher, i began to look specifically for an Israeli connection to all politically motivated events post 2001 because of all the ties i had discovered while researching previous events, however i never suspected that there may be an Israeli connection to John Kennedy’s assassination, much less that of his brother’s, until i read Final Judgment – The Missing Link In The JFK Assassination Conspiracy by Michael Collins Piper. Mike’s work is dismissed by not only the mainstream/legacy media, as expected, but also by many alternative news organizations and JFK assassination researchers, including Peter Dale Scott who has authored substantial works regarding the ‘deep state’. I submitted this article to Activist Post several times and never received a response.

In June, 2018, Laurent Guyénot wrote for the Unz Review, a provocative article titled Did Israel Kill the Kennedys? which further bolsters Piper’s well referenced book. I strongly suggest reading it, even if you have little interest in this historical event, because it will help the reader to understand politics in the 21st century.
