Dear World Watcher,

Have you ever spent a few minutes watching the plane crash videos of 9/11/01? If not, you should. The videos are fake. Here are a few of the most obvious ones:

That day I recorded on the vcr about 8 hours of the live news coverage, beginning just before the first Twin Tower blew up. Anyone can study the video and see that many of the witnesses were bad actors, the plane crashes are fake, and explosives (not planes) blew up the buildings. This is similar to Col. L. Fletcher Prouty’s description in chapter 3 of his 1992 book JFK. He explains how tens of thousands of people worldwide train for these types of operations on a daily basis.

This guy here, dressed up as a construction worker, is a real giveaway:

Of the 1.6 million people in Manhattan that day, the A-number-one witness to the event just happens to drive by a Fox News reporter and tell what he saw.

Here is another obvious actor, this one at the Pentagon:

And this guy is just plane comical:

In the video September Clues they highlight some of the actors of that day:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5BvmdWAIs14

This person appears to miss his cue when upstaged by a passerby Fox News wasn’t expecting. The actor (carrying a large bag) turns around and walks back towards the Trade Center, then comes back for his lengthy interview (interview not included here):

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_0eC3uns3pA

At the end of the above video CNN shows us a close-up view of the North Tower (building to the right) before it was blown up. Much of the plane’s “entrance hole” is unbroken. Also some of the beams at the upper right are jutting outward, not inward. Fake pictures on the internet and in television documentaries show a larger and more believable hole in the building. They even added some people standing in the hole!

For a very good view of what the North Tower really looked like before it was blown up go to http://wtc.vjs.organd click on “Tower 2 fireball”. Also, at the tail end of that video clip you can see a helicopter or plane in the background. In none of the fake plane crash videos do we see a helicopter or plane there.

The official number of passengers on board the 3 planes that allegedly crashed is only a fraction of the number of passengers normally on such flights. In fact, flight 93 that supposedly crashed in Shanksville, Pennsylvania had only 37 passengers. Just one of the many indications this was fake.

After 5pm many of the news stations began airing video clips of the 47-story WTC #7 collapsing. Nobody bothers to mention that this was obviously a controlled demolition; no apparent damage to the building as it falls like a house of cards. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Zv7BImVvEyk

At 11:07am (eastern time) CNN’s Aaron Brown talks on the telephone with CNN’s Alan Dodds Frank who is in lower Manhattan. Frank apparently reports that a third building collapsed at 10:45. He said it happened 15 minutes after the collapse of the North Tower (10:28) and a firefighter estimated 50 stories fell. When viewing this clip notice that Brown doesn’t ask which building fell; why it fell; or, were there people in or around the building. When Frank is done with his report Brown casually moves on and changes the subject! Shortly after this conversation the timeclock underneath the CNN logo disappears and is never displayed again.

(One possible explanation for this mix-up is that the 47-story WTC #7 was scheduled to be blown up around the same time as the Twin Towers, but for some reason they postponed it to later in the day. Poor Mr. Frank wasn’t informed of this last minute change of plan and he went on to read his well-rehearsed script at the wrong time.)

Fox News reporter Jeff Goldblatt interviews a photographer, live, at Shanksville. The photographer says all he could see was a 10ft. x 15-20ft. ditch, smoke, and some broken trees. “Nothing that you could distinguish that a plane had crashed there.” The video of the crash site clearly shows that no plane crashed there.

Early footage of the Pentagon before the wall and roof collapsed. Firemen hose down the fire that can be seen inside the building through the windows. One guy with a broom is sweeping. (Where is the plane?)

KTVU Channel 2 (local Oakland, Calif. station) correspondent Mike Majchrowitz reports live from the Pentagon. He says that a little after 10am the smoke seemed to be going down and then there was a set of explosions and it turned black again. He also says he hasn’t yet seen an eyewitness to the crash.

C-span interviews a Pentagon employee in her car. She says, “The building shook. I was in the building and that last bomb threat [sic] they just had, it shook the building. I left.”

CNN’s Jamie McIntyre reports live from the Pentagon. He says there’s no evidence of a plane having crashed anywhere near the Pentagon; no large sections of wing, tail, or fuselage visible.

The initial report of hijackers with knives and box-cutters on Flight 77 allegedly came from Barbara Olson using a phone on the plane. She just happened to be married to Solicitor General Ted Olson who argued President Bush’s election case before the Florida State Supreme Court in 2000. What a small world.

How did it happen that an entire country could be tricked into believing something so dumb that a 10-year-old kid can figure it out? William Shirer wrote about this sort of thing in “The Rise and Fall of the Third Reich.” He described what it was like being in Nazi Germany, and no matter how silly or retarded the Nazi news propaganda was, the gullible German public swallowed it up, hook, line, and sinker.

Shirer wrote:

    I myself was to experience how easily one is taken in by a lying and censored press and radio in a totalitarian state. Though unlike most Germans I had daily access to foreign newspapers, especially those of London, Paris and Zurich, which arrived the day after publication, and though I listened regularly to the BBC and other foreign broadcasts, my job necessitated the spending of many hours a day in combing the German press, checking the German radio, conferring with Nazi officials and going to party meetings. It was surprising and sometimes consternating to find that notwithstanding the opportunities I had to learn the facts and despite one’s inherent distrust of what one learned from Nazi sources, a steady diet over the years of falsifications and distortions made a certain impression on one’s mind and often misled it. No one who has not lived for years in a totalitarian land can possibly conceive how difficult it is to escape the dread consequences of a regime’s calculated and incessant propaganda. Often in a German home or office or sometimes in a casual conversation with a stranger in a restaurant, a beer hall, a cafe, I would meet with the most outlandish assertions from seemingly educated and intelligent persons. It was obvious that they were parroting some piece of nonsense they had heard on the radio or read in the newspapers. Sometimes one was tempted to say as much, but on such occasions one was met with such a stare of incredulity, such a shock of silence, as if one had blasphemed the Almighty, that one realized how useless it was even to try to make contact with a mind which had become warped and for whom the facts of life had become what Hitler and Goebbels, with their cynical disregard for truth, said they were.

For many years Mae Brussell exposed just how and why the traditional domestic U.S. eastern establishment powers, such as the Rockefellers and Kennedys, are being wiped out by the more sadistic, foreign interests infiltrating the United States (essentially the same people we were fighting during WWII). And on September 11, 2001 the World Trade Center was blown up littered with jokes and comedy acts for anyone who bothers to look. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sXcQWaTRPbQ

For those interested in understanding what led up to this I would recommend the following books:

If you have trouble finding the books try http://www.addall.com or http://www.ebay.com. (Also on ebay people occasionally sell 9/11/01 television coverage they recorded that day.)

Good luck,

Water District CEO Rushes Big-Dollar Consulting Contract, Fails to Disclose Conflicts of Interest

As California prepares, in its fourth dry year, for all manner of apocalyptic scenarios—from rapidly depleted drinking water sources to Dust Bowl-era dirt farms—the thought of Silicon Valley devolving into a waterless sinkhole is “what I lose sleep over at night,” the region’s chief water official says.

As CEO of the Santa Clara Valley Water District, which provides flood protection and water to 1.8 million people in Silicon Valley’s largest county, Beau Goldie is especially concerned with subsidence—the depletion of groundwater basins that could destabilize the region’s supply and, down the road, puncture the landscape with street-swallowing pits. These concerns, he says, prompted him to take emergency action this spring and seek approval on an exclusive contract with RMC, a company that is expected to draw up plans for a recycling plant to replenish the valley’s fragile groundwater.

But sources within the water district say Goldie has routinely avoided disclosing potential conflicts of interest regarding RMC, the beneficiary of more than $18 million from the water district in the last decade.

The latest agreement with the company, expected to come in at more than $4 million, has for the most part escaped public scrutiny. In April, the seven-member elected Board of Directors, on a 5-2 vote, gave Goldie the green light to negotiate a single-source contract, which means competitive vendors were not even in the running. Goldie said a surprisingly dry winter gave rise to the fast track contracting process.

“Just about every month counts here,” Goldie told San Jose Inside. “We’re in a race.”

What Goldie never disclosed to the board is the cozy relationship the water district has shared with RMC for a number of years.

Melanie Richardson, one of Goldie’s top ranking deputies and the person responsible for overseeing watershed contracts for the district, is married to one of RMC’s principal owners, Tom Richardson. In a statement of economic interest form filed for 2010,Melanie Richardson noted that she held stock in the company worth between $100,000 and $1 million.

Goldie also neglected to inform board members that last year Monterey County Water Agency board member Steve Collins pleaded no contest to public corruption charges, including felony grand theft, related to payments from RMC and an artichoke grower. Collins worked as a paid consultant for the company and also voted on its contracts as an elected official. Collins also illegally billed clients $160,000 for meetings that he didn’t attend, or which were part of his duties as a public official, prosecutors said.

Gary Kremen, chair of the Santa Clara Valley Water District (SCVWD) and one of only two board members to vote against RMC’s contract, called the single-source negotiations with RMC “bad planning on an epic proportion.”

“It’s not like a dam is breaking and we need to immediately plug a hole,” Kremen said. “A couple months aren’t going to kill us. It’s going to take up to 10 years to get drops of water from a recycling plant into the groundwater.

“It’s starting out on the absolute wrong foot. We’ve known about this purified water project for years. We’ve had way more time to make disclosures about RMC’s past behavior, and those disclosures were never made.”

Goldie defended RMC’s selection, and the decision to exclude details about Collins and the Richardsons when going to the board for approval. He admitted that the SCVWD conducted no additional research into RMC’s role in Collins’ indictment. “It would just slow down processes tremendously, and we wouldn’t be able to provide any more assurances,” Goldie said.

In the case of Melanie Richardson’s potential conflict of interest, Goldie said that a “firewall” was put in place years ago to keep her from coming into contact with actions related to her husband’s company.

“Melanie is in the flood protection side of the house, so she has no involvement in this whatsoever,” Goldie said.

But sources at the water district tell San Jose Inside this hasn’t always been the case. In fact, internal documents show that Richardson has managed people who handle RMC contracts, including their performance reviews. The “firewall” appears to rely on her walking out of the room when RMC is discussed.

“It doesn’t pass the smell test,” said a source with decades of experience overseeing contracts between public agencies and consultants.

Sources confirmed that the Santa Clara County District Attorney’s office looked into the matter two years ago, but the investigation was called off due to an impending statute of limitations for any potential charges.

Goldie insisted in a May interview with San Jose Inside that an in-house ethics expert, LeeAnn Pelham, had strengthened SCVWD controls to prevent any impropriety. Pelham subsequently resigned her post.

RMC’s single-source contract was part of a package of non-competitive deals Goldie submitted at an April 28 board meeting. He received pushback not only from Kremen and fellow director Barbara Keegan, but also Ravi Subramanian, the district’s head of procurement.

“I just said the language needs to be stronger to justify why they should be single-source contracts,” Subramanian told San Jose Inside in a phone interview monitored by district communications staff.

The RMC deal earmarks several million dollars worth of preliminary planning for an indirect potable recycling plant, but Goldie said that the overall project could end up costing $800 million. Sources say that estimate is optimistic, as the water district has a history of going over budget.

District board member Keegan, a trained engineer who along with Kremen voted against Goldie’s single-source contract proposals, noted that companies doing preliminary planning often receive ensuing contracts. Engineers rarely trust work they have not verified themselves.

“Whoever does the preliminary engineering work obviously is going to have more experience with the project and that would help in the future for a final design contract,” Keegan said. “If another firm were chosen for the design, they would have to redo significant portions of the preliminary engineering to verify the accuracy of the other firm’s work product.”

Goldie said that RMC has been notified it is unlikely to receive future contracts on the project, making the decision to go with the company from the start all the more perplexing.

“That means, potentially, the $5 million being spent on this preliminary contract would be wasted if another firm were chosen to finish off the project,” Keegan said.

Beyond the proposed RMC contract, sources say the firm has improperly billed the district in the past. Sources also told San Jose Inside that a recent audit found that district staff has routinely moved money between projects, sometimes to the benefit of RMC, and these transfers of funds are tucked into massive reports that often go undetected by the part-time board members.

“By moving funds directly from project to project, it avoids scrutiny from the public and the Board,” Keegan said.

Board chair Kremen said he plans to call on Goldie to suspend negotiations with RMC until a more thorough vetting of their past dealings with the district can be conducted.

  1. RMC had the 3 year contract for the SBWR Master Plan (Google it!). This contract was just completed in April and was co-managed by the City of San Jose and the Water District. RMC knows the issues with recycled water in the valley, I do not see what the problem is here. Everyone at the top levels of government has their “hands in the kitty”, how else did they get elected or promoted? Why is this such a surprise what the Water District did?

    I would be interested to hear what Mr. Wall has to say about this nefariousness.

  2. Beau Goldie and John Gundry–cut from the same cloth. Who has the authority to terminate each of these two, and why haven’t they exercised that authority? Our smithy may be resigned to the inevitability of corruption at the top, but I am not.

  3. @Josh_Koehn. look into what they are doing to the board room, wasting millions and no one gets fired for breaking it so they can waste more money, have all the documentation.@pgoeltz this is district wide waste they even paid for sig hearing aid over 5k, when hes a rich farmer,, as to the problem, they funnel money how and where they want this is just tip of waste there.

  4. Its your taX money they don’t care ask to see all the prs from all departments you will see waste and same style, hiring friends, no bid, IT ADHOC, COMMITTEE IS A JOKE TO GET A NEW 3 MILLION BOARDROOM
    SANTA CLARA VALLEY WATER DISTRICT LOOK LIKE FOOLS 10 28 14 LYING CAO CEO STAFF READ WATCH TRUTH. FUNNY 2 COPS THERE THAT NIGHT. GOOGLE BOARD ROOM AND DOCUMENTS, THEY DISREGARD THE TRUTH.

  5. The Santa Clara County D.A. is at least partly right. That Form 700 for 2010, filed on 3/18/2011, is outside the four-year statute of limitations in California Gov Code subsection 91011(b). You’ve checked her filings for 2011, 2012, 2013, and 2014, right?

    There might’ve been a violation of 91005(b), which allows treble damages. Section 91009 says a plaintiff is entitled to half of the penalty.

  6. RMC are getting sole source contracts now from Milpitas and the District. And charges both exorbitant rates under the false pretense of being cheaper and more efficient. I think not. They are obviously conflicted and the District needs a trusted consultant at their side instead of them.

    • I retired from the district after seeing time and time again upper management playing favorites and protecting each other. This is just another example of that. Mr.Goldie and and Ms.Richardson both long term district employees, have no respect for the public. Does anyone really believe that Ms. Richardson “being on the other side of the house” makes the whole issue transparent?
      The solution is to replace Mr. Goldie with an outside professional without these long time personal relationships. Of course no one should be surprised to see Mr. Goldie land on his feet as a highly paid RMC employee.

  7. What? Say it isn’t so, a politician, a CEO, a public official, with a conflict of interest? I’m appalled and saddened. Let me say again, deeply saddened, OH!! but wait, this is America, never mind.

  8. For more information on the water board please have a look at the top of the MaeBrussell(dot)com homepage. Mr. Goldie is a choirboy when compared to the actual board members.
