911 A CASE OF TREASON, MURDER AND URBAN RENEWALL
Larry Silverstein, you may recall, is a reputed mobster who allegedly got his start in the sex services business and then oozed into real estate. Two months before 9/11, Silverstein finalized his 100-year-lease on the white elephant, condemned-for-asbestos World Trade Center complex – and proceeded to double the insurance and hardball his insurers into changing the policy to “cash payout.”
On 9/11/01, Silverstein skipped his usual breakfast at the top of the North Tower. He says his wife reminded him of an appointment with his dermatologist. Other family members also stayed away, with other excuses. All of those who breakfasted there died. Silverstein and family survived.
After confessing on national television to blowing up World Trade Center 7, Silverstein went to court and asked for – and received – double indemnity, including almost a billion dollars for WTC-7 – the very building he had confessed to blowing up. Larry had the chutzpah to claim that there were two separate, unrelated terrorist attacks (the two planes) so he should get twice the money. Somehow that worked, presumably thanks to a mobbed-up judge. “Lucky Larry” walked away with more than five billion dollars, plus rights to rebuild.
But that wasn’t enough chutzpah for Larry. For the past several years he’s been back in court, asking for 11 billion dollars from the airlines’ insurers. Now Silverstein has somehow convinced AMR, the parent company of American Airlines, to give him a special dispensation. Even though AMR has filed bankruptcy, which theoretically should stop all lawsuits against it, the company’s attorneys have – for unstated reasons – chosen to insert a special rider into their bankruptcy agreement which allows Silverstein to continue suing the company.
According to the Wall Street Journal:
Silverstein’s company, which leased the Twin Towers and two other World Trade Center buildings from the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey, is seeking billions of dollars in damages for alleged negligence by the airline, according to the lawsuit. It is also seeking compensation for the lost rental income; the developer had signed 99-year leases for the space just two months before the attack.
Lost rental income?! Larry, those Towers were condemned for asbestos! You would have had to spend many billions, probably double-digit billions, to scrape every bit of asbestos off the frames of those buildings to legally collect rental income. Not only that, but the Towers had a very high vacancy rate and antiquated communications infrastructure. New York City had been desperately seeking a way to demolish the Towers for at least a decade, but could not do so because of the asbestos. The WTC complex was a gigantic money-loser for the City, and it would have quickly bankrupted any private owner…had not a certain act of urban renewal by other means taken place on 9/11/01.
As if all that isn’t enough chutzpah, get this: Larry Silverstein used his 9/11 insurance fraud money to buy Chicago’s Sears Tower!
How could Lucky Larry possibly top all of his previous acts of over-the-top chutzpah?
Simple: He could blow up the Sears Tower, brag about it on national TV, and collect more double-digit billions in insurance money on the premise that it was somehow the fault of the Muslims.
After all, Lucky Larry is on a winning streak.
Will he roll the dice one more time?

9/11 was conceived as an elaborate psychological operation to instill fear into the American people in order to manipulate them into supporting the political agenda of the Bush/Cheney administration, which included the invasion of several nations in the Middle East and the creation of a new century of American domination of the world for the next 100 years. The evidence supports the inference that 9/11 was a “national security event” which was authorized at the highest levels of the American government–the CIA, the NSA, the Pentagon and The White House. It facilitated a reversal of US foreign policy and extraordinary constraints on the Constitution of the United States, which have dramatically increased the centralization of political power in the executive branch and dominating the legislative and judicial branches of government.
The creation of the Department of Homeland Security has been especially ominous, where DHS has now requisitioned more than 1.5 billion rounds of .40 caliber hollow point ammo, which is not even permissible in the conduct of warfare under The Geneva Conventions. Combined with more than 300 FEMA camps around the country, which I have discussed in “From America to Amerika: The End Game” (with Dennis Cimino), even American should be alarmed at the parallels with the rise of The Third Reich in Germany before WWII. As a former Marine Corps officer, I am extremely apprehensive over the future of my country, which has been transformed from the most admired and respected nation in the world–along with our “gallant ally”‘ in the Middle East, Israel–to the most despised and reviled. I never expected that the U.S. would turn to “the dark side” in my lifetime, but it already has.
We should all remember the victims, we should all remember the thousands of rescue efforts, we should all remember the after shock, and the effect on everyones lives. Let us remember the folks who are still here dealing with the aftermath of this great “Horrific Event” that captured the attention of the entire world on this very coincidental date. These are all very good reasons to remember. However it appears that we will never see the real reasons why we should “NOT” remember this “Horrific” date and event. Remembrance is not about seeking revenge against an unproven culprit, it is not seeking out fictitious enemies for the whim of a few “Blood Sucking Leaches” on the global society, remembrance is not about the exploitation, or the arming of groups of a few radicals to do the unjust dirty works of the same “Blood Sucking Leaches”.

After years of effort and numerous setbacks, three of the proposed seven towers to be built at the World Trade Center complex have "topped out," reaching their structural maximum height. Seven WTC was completed in 2006, Four WTC topped out in June of this year, and the tallest, One World Trade Center (formerly known as Freedom Tower), just topped out at 104 floors on August 30. Financial difficulties have left the future of the remaining towers in doubt, and have raised concerns about the still-incomplete National September 11 Memorial and Museum, as the foundation that runs the memorial estimates that it will cost $60 million a year to operate. Gathered below are recent images of the rebuilding at ground zero in New York City.
One World Trade Center stands tall on the skyline of New York's Lower Manhattan as a man takes a picture from a pier in Hoboken, New Jersey, on September 9, 2012. The price tag for the skyscraper was valued at $3.8 billion earlier this year, making it the world's most expensive new office tower. Most of the cost overruns are due to the security measures being taken in the design of the building which sits on a site that has been bombed twice by terrorists. To offset the costs of One World Trade Center, which is being built by the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey, higher bridge and tunnel tolls have been instated and there has been a reduction in spending on transportation infrastructure. The 1,776-foot skyscraper is expected to be completed by late 2013 or early 2014.(Reuters/Gary Hershorn)

Remembrance is not about taking advantage of the mass hysteria of those who “Succumb” .. Remembrance is not about an open pocket book to just write checks for death and destruction on a global scale. Remembrance is not about the “Fat Cats” getting fatter on this death and destruction.
When you remember 9/11 this time round you will be asked by the media and the “Succumbed “ to remember the so called perpetrators of this “Horrific Event”. This is a renewed attempt at seeking your approval to carry on this “Death and Destruction” at will, this is the very reason “Why Not to” remember this “Horrific Event”. If allowed this “Horrific Event” will, and has really already become your New “Holocaust “ with the old “Holocaust” all but forgotten and ignored the new has been brilliantly created for the very purposes of furthering the “Bloodsucking Leaching “ of the planets human resources, without resistance .Actually quite brilliant except for the fact this is not 1939 and this world is not the same world of uninformed people that existed in that era. This is now a world of connectivity something that the “Few” really don’t have. And the connected have already routed out the real perpetrator’s of this “Horrific Event”. As we watch this world plummet into a real live global crisis the real perpetrators are counting on the masses to not have the will or the ability to question or search out the truth in this matter, but rather will have nothing to do but try and save their own lives and or livelihood.This time around try and remember all those masses affected in a very negative way, and then think of those few that have made a literal “Killing” from this “Horrific Event” Remember the thousands who have blindly walked into “The Shadow of The Valley of Death” seeking to destroy a falsely accused, accused with proven false evidence,and Intel not even close to real. Intel, not investigated, an accused not given trial let alone fair trial. So when you remember try and remember what do you really stand for -is it Truth and Justice or is it just for the sake of some kind of misdirected “Revenge”?
Why “Not” to remember 9/11. Go for truth and justice, don’t be duped again.
