'Proof Gov Wrong About Collapse of WTC Building 7?' – Ben Swann gets it wrong

Ben Swann: Proof Gov Wrong About Collapse of WTC Building 7? (New Evidence 2019)

In this report Ben repeats the claim that World Trade Center building 7 contained only small, isolated fires and he interviews Richard Gage of Architects and Engineers for 9/11 Truth about the recent study regarding the collapse of building 7 by University of Alaska, Fairbanks, which concluded that the collapse scenario proposed by NIST is impossible.

There are two points which need to be made regarding Swann's report. First of all, building 7 had been burning all day (roughly 8 hours) prior to its collapse and the fires in the building were extensive, not small nor isolated. Contributing to the progression of the fire is that the FDNY was apparently unable to combat it due to a lack of resources.

While spending some time in New York, i was in the company of a veteran firefighter who, on 11 September 2001, was in the immediate vicinity of building 7 prior to its collapse and he stated without hesitation that building 7 was essentially consumed by fire and that he was not at all surprised that it collapsed.

In the following video smoke can be seen pouring from building 7.

NIST FOIA: WTC 7 on Fire – Version #2 (Vince DeMentri, WCBS-TV)

Personally i hold no opinion on the cause of the global collapse of building 7, but i think it is important to state the facts regardless of how inconvenient they may be for the 'truther' movement.

The second point i'd like to make is in regard to the analytical ability of Richard Gage and the AE911 community who implied for years that a plane, a), did not hit the Pentagon and b), that a plane could not have punctured all the reinforced concrete rings of the Pentagon. What these architects and engineers failed to do as i recently learned from Ryan Dawson of ANC Report, was to figure out how the building was constructed prior to making their claims, which they have apparently finally backpedaled on. The plane did not have to penetrate 6 exterior walls of the Pentagon because the ground floor only had 2 exterior walls. How in the hell does an architect or a building engineer miss this obvious fact for years? In the image below, the plane would have been traveling from left to right.

Below is another drawing of the Pentagon. The plane penetrated the area labeled "general offices", not the rings above.

Ben Swann usually does a pretty great job putting together his reports, so i don't wish to ding him too hard with this, but the obvious mistakes he makes need to be pointed out.

As for the government story regarding 9/11, it is largely a fabrication, however those interested in the truth only discredit themselves by failing to do proper research and repeating long debunked and fanciful claims.

The CIA, Mossad and "Epstein Network" are Exploiting Mass Shootings

12bytes says: This is yet another very important article in a series of articles about Epstein by Whitney Webb of Mint Press News.

As Jeffrey Epstein's links to intelligence in both the United States and Israel — the subject of a recent four-part series exclusive to MintPress — began to be revealed in full, his financing of Carbyne came under scrutiny, particularly for the company's deep ties to Israeli intelligence as well as to certain Americans with known connections to U.S. intelligence. Ehud Barak's own role as both financier and chairman of Carbyne has also added to that concern, given his long history of involvement in covert intelligence operations for Israel and his long-standing ties to Israeli military intelligence.

[…]

Given recent reports on the Trump administration's plan to create a new government agency to use "advanced technology" to identify "neurobehavioral signs" of "someone headed toward a violent explosive act" using data collected by consumer electronic devices, the picture painted by the technology currently being promoted and implemented under the guise of "keeping Americans safe" is deeply Orwellian. In fact, it points directly to the genesis of a far-reaching surveillance state far more extensive than anything yet seen in American history and it is being jointly developed by individuals connected to both American and Israeli intelligence.

[…]

Not long after it was founded in 2014 by veterans of Israeli military intelligence, Carbyne began to be specifically marketed as a solution to mass shootings in the United States that goes "beyond the gun debate" and improves the "intelligence that armed emergency responders receive before entering an armed shooter situation" by providing video-streaming and acoustic input from civilian smartphones and other devices connected to the Carbyne network.

OH NO! (((DNC))) GETS HACKED ONCE AGAIN (by the DNC): Is The DNC RIGGING The Primary Against Tulsi Gabbard and Others? – Invidious

Tulsi Gabbard Gets Some Vindication – Global Research

In the aftermath of the second Democratic primary debate on July 31, Hawaii Rep. Tulsi Gabbard emerged as the most Googled of all candidates, an indication that her performance (which included a stunning takedown of California Sen. Kamala Harris over her criminal justice record) attracted the attention of many viewers. This heightened level of attention produced blowback, both from Harris, who dismissed Gabbard as "an Assad apologist" (a reference to Syrian President Bashar Assad), and from the mainstream media, typified by CNN's Chris Cuomo, who alleged that Gabbard—a major in the Hawaiian National Guard, with two tours of duty in the Middle East under her belt—is taking the side of Assad over the U.S. intelligence community and U.N. inspectors when it comes to assigning blame for chemical weapons attacks against Syrian civilians.

Report: Google Insider Gives 950 Pages of Documents to DOJ – 21st Century Wire

[…] Google's censorship was not limited to 'right wing' or 'pro-Trump' information as has been widely reported by numerous conservative outlets. Google's political censorship program has also buried content and redirected internet searches away from left-wing, progressive and anti-war websites, cutting the search traffic of leading alternative news outlets by well over 50 percent since they implemented their corporate information purge in April 2017. In some instances, website traffic from Google searches dropped more than 70%.

Who Killed Jeffrey Epstein?

The convicted sex offender had blackmail material on dozens if not hundreds of powerful people. Epstein's homes and aircraft were monitored with cameras and microphones, and his private island was completely wired for video, according to a friend of his alleged procuress, Ghislaine Maxwell. Safes found on his property contained piles of video discs marked young (name of girl) + (name of VIP) – alongside the diamonds, piles of cash and Saudi passport. Virginia Roberts Giuffre, one of his victims, says she was "debriefed" after sex sessions with Epstein's famous friends, supplying him with the intimate details of their encounters in order to potentially weaponize the information.
