On 9/11 anniversary, Obama hails ‘true spirit of 9/11’
Associated Press |

WASHINGTON (AP) — Hailing the values and resilience that he says both define and sustains Americans, President Barack Obama on Saturday honored the nearly 3,000 souls that were lost in the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks, as well as the bravery of survivors and the emergency personnel who responded, and the work of scores of others who have labored since to keep the homeland safe.…/

In New York, victims' relatives and others convened Sunday on the memorial plaza for one of the constants in how America remembers 9/11 after 15 years -- the anniversary ceremony itself.
what are now traditions: moments of silence and tolling bells, an apolitical atmosphere and the hours-long reading of the names of the dead.
Presidential candidates Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump could be seen in the crowd as the reading of the names took place. Former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani and Rep. Peter King were also in attendance. Pentegon Memorial
911 15th Anniversary 
2016 marks the landmark 15th anniversary of 9/11.
In New York, ongoing focus remains on the new One World Trade Center in downtown Manhattan, completed in 2013 when construction workers finally placed the final pieces high atop New York City's newest skyscraper, making it the tallest building in the Western hemisphere at 1,776 feet.
The single skyscraper replaces the iconic Twin Towers, destroyed on September 11, 2001 -- marking the first ever attack on US soil.

 Congress approves bill to allow 9/11 families to sue Saudi Arabia instead of Israel

 The House has approved a bipartisan bill that would allow families of September 11 victims to sue the government of Saudi Arabia

Obama Veto Bogus 911 - Saudi Arabia Bill

Risking an election-year public backlash, President Obama on Friday vetoed popular but controversial legislation allowing the relatives of 9/11 victims to sue Saudi Arabia in U.S. courts. Obama’s rejection of the Justice Against Sponsors of Terrorism Act (JASTA) sets up what seems likely to be the first-ever successful congressional vote to override his veto.
“Enacting JASTA into law,” Obama warned in a lengthy veto statement, “would neither protect Americans from terrorist attacks nor improve the effectiveness of our response to such attacks.”
Hours before Obama rejected the measure, his former secretary of state, Hillary Clinton, broke sharply with his position. “She would sign this legislation if it came to her desk,” Clinton campaign spokesman Jesse Lehrich told Yahoo News by email. She had previously staked out ambiguous turf, applauding congressional “efforts” to get justice for 9/11 families without explicitly supporting the legislation.

I have written and spoken extensively about the agenda behind the unfolding global financial crisis and here I will expose the coordinating force, or at least the prime one, behind that agenda and so much else, including 9/11.
It is widely known as Zionism or, as I call it, more accurately, I suggest … Rothschild Zionism. I add the ‘Rothschild’ to constantly emphasise the true creators of Zionism and its controllers to this day (see Human Race Get Off Your Knees)

Right there, Mr. Rockefeller: it says it all. No one believes your phony interview where there is the claim that you were surprised and shocked by 911, when the buildings came tumbling down.
If there is pride in doing evil, if you are so confident in yourself, why, then, was this cover-up video, as linked here, perpetrated?
It is ironic that the worst event that has occur in the last 50 years is almost forgotten by main stream media. George W. Bush, Dick Cheney, Donald Rumsfeld,Efraim Halevy,Ariel Sharon, Larry Silverstein, Benjamin Netanyahu, and the other Conspirators want the world to forget about 9-11 and the big hoax perpetrated upon the people of the world as a pretext for war with Iraq and ushering in the Patriot Act. The people of the World are not fool. 9-11 did occur and and we the people will not forget the ruthless attack on the people of New York City on September 11, 2001. Why did 3000 Jews and Israel citizens decide to not show up for work at the WTC that day? All nations lost citizens that day except Israel. This is the conspiracy of all conspiracy.

Reprint from When I pause to remember 9.11.01, my memories seem to drift from one scenario to another, from one atrocity to the next. Most of all, when I remember 9/11, my mind reels from the vast numbers of inexplicable coincidences which seem to revolve around this national tragedy. I remember that over 200 people jumped to their deaths from The Twin Towers, no longer able to withstand the suffocating smoke and searing flames. I remember their heart-breaking, terrifying leaps into the empty nothingness of space — just to be free, to exist for a mere 10 seconds more, before suffering instant death on the concrete sidewalks of the World Trade Center below. I remember the thousands of fire fighters and rescue workers who died slow, lingering deaths, as many still do ’till this day, because our Environmental Protection Agency had falsely assured them that the air at Ground Zero was safe to breathe, despite the fact that all the workers from the EPA always wore full HazMat suits at Ground Zero. I remember how the top of the South Tower was COMPLETELY DISCONNECTED from the lower portion of that building and was falling from it, yet we were told by the toads of NIST (National Institute of Standards and Technology) that the tops of the World Trade Centers acted like “pile drivers” to collapse the structures beneath them– even tho the structures beneath them were completely undamaged, and the structures above them weighed nearly the exact same amount as they did before the plane strikes. And whereas real ‘pile drivers’ must be raised far into the air and then dropped for any ‘pile driving’ effect to actually take place, it is my recollection of that day that neither top of either World Trade Center was lifted and then dropped onto the building below it. However, I do remember that the designers of the World Trade Centers had stated that they had designed both World Trade Centers to survive multiple strikes from fully fueled 4 engine transatlantic airliners, and that somehow, all 47 of the steel core columns of both buildings disappeared even tho neither plane struck either central core of either tower. I will also remember that jet fuel, with perfect vaporization, can reach approx. 1600 degrees Farenheit, while structural steel melts at approximately 2700 degree Farenheit. I also remember that the majority of the fuel from both planes burned outside of the buildings. I remember that a fire broke out in one of the towers at the World Trade Center in 1993 and burned for over 6 hours without causing ANY structural damage to that building, just as I will remember that nowhere else on the planet has any steel framed high rise building ever collapsed from fire, even from fires that burned for 18 hours straight. I definitely remember that the World Trade Center towers were the first — and only — steel framed buildings to completely collapse due to fire at any time, anywhere in the world, altho both of these fires lasted less than two hours. I do remember wondering how it was that 90,000 tons of hardened steel and re-enforced concrete could essentially be vaporized into a powder finer than talc, and spread throughout lower Manhattan; I wondered how unburned particles of military grade nano-thermite could be found in the residue throughout the World Trade Center, and dismissed because the samples had not come from “official government sources.” I wondered about the psychic ability of the person who had arranged for the sale of scrap metal from the World Trade Center collapse to be sold and shipped to China, months in advance of the attack on the World Trade Center; just as I wondered how “Lucky” Larry Silverstein, who owned The World Trade Center and who ritually enjoyed breakfast every morning at the “Windows on the World Restaurant” on the top floor of The World Trade Center, had somehow decided not to do so on the morning of September 11th. I will remember that only a day after the World Trade Center Towers #1 and #2 collapsed, investigators discovered glowing hot spots of radioactivity under both piles of rubble; and that rivers of molten steel were observed running under both World Trade Centers as late as December 21st, over three months after their collapse; what sort of otherworldly jet fuel could do that?… I remember wondering. I even remember that nearly all the gold and silver bars stored in the basements of the World Trade Center towers were removed the previous day, but that one truck was found stuck under the debris pile. Somehow, the custodians of all that gold and silver (nearly 100 tons of precious metals) had apparently moved it out on a hunch or a whim the day before 9/11, because, of course, no one other than the alleged hijackers and Osama bin Laden had advance knowledge of this event. I will remember the denials of our government that the black boxes from the planes which struck The World Trade Center towers were not found at Ground Zero, when three of the four boxes actually were found at Ground Zero by firefighters Mike Bellone and Nicholas De Masi, who publicly stated in 2004 that they had found them. I remember reading that Bellone and De Masi said that Federal agents told the two men not to mention having found them, and all the black boxes were immediately confiscated by the FBI. I remember that approximately one month before 9/11, both towers were shut down for an entire weekend, electrical power to both towers completely cut, and bomb sniffing dogs removed from both buildings, while anonymous “workers” in gray suits, hauling huge cables on their arms, moved in and out of both towers, doing “repairs” of an unknown nature, resulting in people returning to their offices the following Monday at The World Trade Center to find a 1/2 inch layer of dust covering everything. I will remember that two seismographs in New York (separately) recorded deep, underground disturbances approximately 15 seconds before either plane struck either tower, which could indicate cutting charges severing both buildings from their foundations by explosives — or perhaps New York City coincidentally suffered two significant earthquakes precisely 15 seconds before either plane struck either tower. You do believe in coincidence, don’t you?continue reading

Obama Lauds New Orleans' Progress Since Katrina, Says There's More To Be Done

NEW ORLEANS (Reuters) - President Barack Obama on Thursday heralded the progress New Orleans has made rebuilding since Hurricane Katrina battered the area 10 years ago but said more needed to be done to overcome poverty and inequality.
On his ninth trip to the city that made worldwide headlines in 2005 after a devastating flood was exacerbated by a slow government response, Obama toured a neighborhood of colorful new houses and a new school and community center.
"Just because the houses are nice doesn't mean our job's done," Obama told reporters after shaking hands with residents and greeting children from the community.continue reading

The 'Appalling' Ways Media Covered Hurricane Katrina Aftermath

When Hurricane Katrina wreaked havoc on the New Orleans coastline and its residents in 2005, the desperation and bungled relief effort quickly became one of the biggest media stories of the year. But did the media miss the mark with its coverage?
"It was appalling," Lilly Workneh, HuffPost's Black Voices Senior Editor, told HuffPost Live on Monday. "It was a tale of two cities, there was a very different narrative, a black Katrina narrative that was resounding and that was appalling to see played out in the media."
Erica McConduit-Diggs, the president of Urban League of Greater New Orleans, also joined and looked back on the "critical role" that the media played in the Katrina crisis. 
"All communication was shut down for New Orleanians trying to get to safety. Literally once you were out, you were glued to the TV," she said. "So [the media] essentially framed the narrative for the country and the world [about] what was happening in New Orleans."
Workneh remembered the coverage as well and compared the language used to refer to white and black victims of the storm. She noted a few controversial photos and their captions, one which said that a white survivor was "finding" food while another assumed a black survivor, on the same quest, was "looting" a store -- even though the images looked nearly identical.continue reading

The Current State Of
Black New Orleans

Was Katrina a planed attack on New Orleans to depopulate the Poor and Black community?

 The death toll from Katrina is uncertain, but according to the National Hurricane Center, 1,836 fatalities can be attributed to the storm: 1 in Kentucky, 2 each in Alabama, Georgia, and Ohio, 14 in Florida, 238 in Mississippi, and 1,577 in Louisiana. There are still thousands missing. The mayor of New Orleans said that as any as 10,000 could had died from the flooding of New Orleans.
What's the city's population? Before: about 484,000 people.
_ After: about 360,400 people.

In the city, the Census Bureau estimated 97,000 fewer African Americans in 2015 compared to 2000, 14,984 fewer whites and 4,830 more Hispanics.97,000 fewer Blacks. What happen to all the Black population? Where did they go? Did Houston, Memphis, St. Louis, Baton Rough, Dallas or some other city have a big increase in the Black population due to Katrina? NO  - What happen to the 100,000 and more Black New Orleans residence?  Did they wash out to sea? WHERE ARE THEY? Was Katrina a planned depopulation attack using HAARP?

Katrina was called the perfect hurricane. It came ashore on Christian Pass Mississippi. Hurricane Katrina did not cause the flooding that devastated New Orleans, but On 29 August 2005 there were over 50 failures of the levees and flood walls protecting New Orleans, Louisiana, and its suburbs following passage of Hurricane Katrina and landfall in Mississippi. The levee and flood wall failures caused flooding in 80% of New Orleans and all of St. Bernard Parish. Tens of billions of gallons of water spilled into vast areas of New Orleans, flooding over 100,000 homes and businesses. Responsibility for the design and construction of the levee system belongs to the United States Army Corps of Engineers; the responsibility of maintenance belongs to the local levee boards.continue reading Levee failure.

September 7, 2005 -- Locals from Lakeview subdivision of New Orleans report that after Katrina passed a loose barge struck levee causing breach that flooded city.
WMR has just been informed by evacuees in Baton Rouge from Lakeview, a well-to-do New Orleans neighborhood, that the flooding of the city was caused by a loose barge striking the levee on the 17th Street Canal. The breach was not caused by rising flood waters as reported by FEMA and other agencies. Lakeview is some 1.5 miles down Veterans Boulevard from the 17th St. Canal breach.

Distraught evacuees want to know why the Coast Guard or the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers did not secure the barge. The evacuees who witnessed the barge striking the levee also want to know why the major media is not covering this story. It is not known what company owns the barge but if it is a major campaign contributor to the GOP, the answer is self-evident.

Few people understand what really happened in New Orleans or what caused it. Fewer still realize that they too may be living under a similar or an even greater threat. This video exposes the key myths and misunderstandings about the New Orleans flood.

Was The New Orleans
Flooding A Planned Event?

By Michael Shore
The following eyewitness accounts produced the following statement by the people who were there and witnessed first hand what was going on in New Orleans and this is what they had to say regarding the U.S. government's actions with the people of New Orleans:
"We couldn't starve them out, the hurricane didn't kill them, it seems planned."
The idea that this whole hurricane disaster was a planned event just like 911 is incomprehensible to just about everyone. But it actually may have been. Please read the following two articles that appeared on Rense. Technology now exists that can control and manipulate the what degree is not known. A disaster like Katrina is not incomprehensible when gangsters take control of such a powerful weapon. The Illuminati and the Bush/Cheney gang and their associates in crime can literally get away with murder on a grand scale in broad daylight - as long as they can keep their secret of the existence of scalar weather weapons from the People, which they are obviously successful in doing.
Can Hurricanes Be Used As Weapons Of Mass Destruction?
Was Hurricane Katrina A Man Made Storm For Profit?
The accounts of the eyewitness storyfurther suggests manipulation. The gangsters seem to be primed to grab many of the assets a large chunks of land in New Orleans without having to use a major war to do so. After everything has quieted down, they will then use taxpayer money to rebuild ...including casinos, hotels, shopping malls, condos etc, etc. They will loot vast sums from the billions in Federal aid it will take to repair the levees and infrastructure of the city. The Illuminati bankers will also make billions in interest from the loans they will make to the government, corporations and some individuals, who will need the necessary financing for rebuilding. Of course, the slow response or "no response" to this disaster is part of the plan. In one small swoop, these gangsters have gotten "the poor niggers" off the land, so when they rebuild, this area will become a major upscale lily white NEW TOWN. How sick can they be?continue reading
 P.S. Do research online. You might be shocked at what you uncover. Invite your friends to read the above articles about weather manipulation. Do a google search for 'scalar weapons' and read more about this amazing technology. Spread the word...while we still can.

One decade after Hurricane Katrina -...


Maggie Carroll couldn’t sleep – not after what she had read earlier in the day. It was 11 January 2006, four months after the deadly floods triggered by Hurricane Katrina had swallowed many of New Orleans’ neighbourhoods.
Carroll and her husband were among the first to return after the storm and take stock of theirs, Broadmoor, a low-lying area whose raised bungalows and colourful shotgun houses had been inundated by up to 10 feet of water. The Carrolls’ home on Walmsley Avenue had been left structurally sound; its wood floors didn’t buckle. Still, the water had picked up pieces of furniture, carried them across rooms and left them ruined. It broke up the back deck and crushed the garage door, before submerging Maggie’s grandfather’s 1963 Chevy.
Renting an apartment off Magazine Street, a short drive away, for $1,300 a month, the Carrolls faced days filled with uncertainty. Then, on 11 January, the front-page story in the New Orleans Times-Picayune gave them yet another jolt. A mayoral-appointed Bring New Orleans Back Commission had sketched out a plan it hoped would open the tap of federal aid. Crafted by a team of outside consultants, the blueprint suggested concentrating redevelopment on the city’s higher, less-flood-prone ground.continue reading
