As I discussed in Part I of The Ultimate Inside Job, there are a multitude of discrepancies in the explanation that September 11th was solely a terrorist attack carried out by Islamic jihadists. Ample evidence points to the World Trade Center being brought down via controlled demolition and the truth is coming out as the American public is becoming increasingly skeptical of the Deep State’s explanation for that deadly day in American history.
Almost 17 years later, 9/11 victims’ families are demanding a grand jury investigation into what really happened that day and government officials are coming out of their daze and waking up to the truth staring them in the face. Over half of Americans are now more curious as 54 percent believe the government is withholding the truth from us about 9/11.
A North Carolina city councilwoman, LaWana Mayfield, recently questioned whether the 9/11 attacks were terrorism at all a few weeks ago. Almost 3,000 people died, leading to the perpetual war on terror, the Department of Homeland Security, thousands more dead American soldiers in the Middle East (and a ceaseless supply of disgruntled terrorists), and an exploding military budget. The Charlotte Observer reported that Mayfield posted on her Facebook page a link to an article from Awarenessact.com titled, “It’s Official: European Scientific Journal Concludes 9/11 Was A Controlled Demolition.” Mayfield also wrote that she’s still waiting for someone to produce pieces of the “alleged plane that opened the doors for US citizens to (lose) all privacy rights.” She would apologize five days later but still claimed she’s unsure whether planes took down the WTC.
Mayfield told a radio station in Charlotte that she thought the September 11th attacks were aimed “to not only create a way through government to spy on the American people, but also to privatize a lot of the work that is happening on the ground.” This truth is far from a conspiracy theory as 9/11 truthers continue to point to scientific evidence pointing to the inside job that occured on that fateful day.
The truth about WTC 7 falling as a result of controlled demolition was exposed in the mainstream media on C-Span in August 2014.
9/11 was predicted before it even happened by those who saw it coming. Radio host Bill Cooper, in June 2001, predicted a coming terrorist attack that would be blamed on Osama bin Laden. Cooper was killed later that year after 9/11 by police in a convenient encounter stinking of entrapment, escalation, and sketchy circumstances.
“Whatever they’re going to blame on Osama bin Laden – don’t you believe it…They will soon do something outlandish to gain the support of the Sheeple,” Cooper claimed on that June 2001 radio show. Only 11 weeks later, his predictions would become reality. Cooper connected the dots through information obtained from his sources, allowing him to see through the lies being fed to the American public (AKA the Sheeple). The mystery surrounding Cooper’s death has led to the belief by many that it was not an accident but a carefully constructed plot to remove a dangerous truth-teller.
Below is Cooper’s prescient pre-9/11 radio broadcast.
Alex Jones, now of InfoWars.com, was another radio host dismissed as a fake news conspiracy theory nut job. Up until 9/11, Jones was syndicated on 100 radio stations and was heard widely across the American radio waves. However, after September 11th, Jones began to talk about how the attacks were a conspiracy by the Bush administration. This caused a number of the stations to drop his program and for him to be ostracized by the radio industry, relegated to his present status as a conspiracy theorist that few in mainstream media or political circles take seriously.
Funny how what the government finds uncomfortable and the public sees as deplorable is dismissed as unfounded conspiracy theory. The truth can be hard to accept when it is so atrocious.

A report put out by Europhysics News on the 15th anniversary of 9/11 questions the official explanation of the collapse of all three WTC buildings on September 11th. The stark conclusion will make even the most rational or logical person see the truth in the supposed conspiracy theorist’s version of events.
“It bears repeating that fires have never caused the total collapse of a steel-framed high-rise before or since 9/11. Did we witness an unprecedented event three separate times on September 11, 2001? The NIST [U.S. National Institute of Standards and Technology] reports, which attempted to support that unlikely conclusion, fail to persuade a growing number of architects, engineers, and scientists. Instead, the evidence points overwhelmingly to the conclusion that all three buildings were destroyed by controlled demolition. Given the far-reaching implications, it is morally imperative that this hypothesis be the subject of a truly scientific and impartial investigation by responsible authorities.”
Further investigations include, “15 Years Later: On the Physics of High-Rise Building Collapses,” by Steven Jones, a former professor emeritus of civil engineering at McMaster University in Ontario, Canada and fellow of the Canadian Society for Civil Engineering as well as Ted Walter’s (a mechanical design engineer and author of Architects & Engineers for 9/11 Truth’s Beyond Misinformation) “What Science Says About the Destruction of World Trade Center Buildings 1, 2 and 7.” It’s science, not conspiracy! Not speculation! Far from fake news! There is no other reason why the buildings came down that day other than controlled demolition. The facts are impossible to ignore any longer.
Here are some more stunning revelations the researchers pointed out.
Fires generally are not hot enough and do not last long enough to generate the ample energy to bring down the structural infrastructure to bring a building down. In addition, most high rise buildings have fire sprinkler systems to prevent a fire from releasing the requisite energy to heat the steel enough to collapse a building of that size. Structural members are always protected by fireproof material designed to prevent them from reaching high enough temperatures.
“Countless other steel-framed high-rises have experienced large, long-lasting fires without suffering either partial or total collapse,” the report points out. The architects and engineers’ report goes on to state:
“… neither before nor since 9/11 have fires caused the total collapse of a steel-framed high-rise—nor has any other natural event, with the exception of the 1985 Mexico City earthquake, which toppled a 21-story office building. Otherwise, the only phenomenon capable of collapsing such buildings completely has been by way of a procedure known as controlled demolition, whereby explosives or other devices are used to bring down a structure intentionally.”
And yet, on 9/11, we saw three high rise structures fall to the ground, reduced to rubble.
Politicians formerly in power are sounding the alarm to the discrepancies involved in the 9/11 commission. Former U.S. Senate Intelligence Committee Chairman Bob Graham, a Democrat from Florida, has protested that The Senate-House Intelligence Committee Joint 9/11 Inquiry that he co-chaired had been given a deadline in 2002 that was unrealistic and therefore prevented full completion of the work required. The ten-member group, The 9/11 Commission, issued a report in July 2004 that left many serious researchers and 9/11 victims’ family members up in arms about many unanswered questions after significant new evidence continues to come to light.
The sound evidence has led to numerous articles decrying the accepted explanation for 9/11. Most notably, a 2016 column titled, “Experts Reject Planes, Fire As Cause For 9/11 WTC Collapses.” The article, put out on the 15th anniversary of the attacks, posited: “Technical experts are mounting major challenges to official U.S. government accounts of how three World Trade Center skyscrapers collapsed in near-freefall after the 9/11 attacks 15 years ago.” This article links to government reports on the attacks in addition to the previously mentioned Europhysics News report challenging the government’s findings. The AE911Truth link also mentioned above revealed that the article has been downloaded nearly 700,000 times since August 2016 and “continues to rack up over 2,000 reads per week, keeping it at the top of Europhysics News’ ‘Most read articles.’” Americans are searching for the truth and finally becoming skeptical of the mainstream media kowtowing to the government-led narrative.
Congress is showing increasing willingness to uncover the what really happened on 9/11. One recent victory was the release of the 28 pages that had been suppressed from the 2002 Joint House-Senate Intelligence Commission Inquiry report. The documents released exposed the the relationships intact before 9/11 by Saudi Arabian entities with the 19 accused airplane hijackers, 15 of whom were Saudi nationals. Another victory over the last couple years was the congressional passage of the Justice Against Sponsors of Terrorism Act in 2016 that narrowed the definition of sovereign immunity for civil court claims resulting from international terrorism. April’s petition by the lawyers for 9/11 victims is the latest opening of civic dialog on arguably the most controversial and pivotal event in American history.
The Saudi connection cannot be ignored. Saudi Arabia is the largest sponsor of terrorism in the world, despite claims that Iran is. Furthermore, the Israel lobby continues to pollute Washington DC, getting our bloated military to fight its wars for them despite our military aid that will total $3.9 billion in 2019. Sadly, it seems that President Trump has been hijacked by the Saudi-Israeli cabal as former presidents have.

U.S. District Judge George Daniels said that there is “a reasonable basis” to implicate Saudi Arabia as one of the countries behind the 9/11 attack. But they will likely never be held to account for their crimes. Saudi Arabia helped “two hijackers acclimate themselves to the United States, and begin preparing for the attacks… James Kreindler, a lawyer for many of the plaintiffs, said he was ‘delighted’ the case can proceed.” Saudi Arabia needs to be viewed as the criminal country they are truly are. Trump has said the Saudis were largely responsible for 9/11 but has done nothing about it.
“Who blew up the World Trade Center? It wasn’t the Iraqis,” Trump said in February 2016. “It was Saudi — take a look at Saudi Arabia, open the documents.” Trump also said they are “the world’s biggest funder of terrorism. Saudi Arabia funnels our petrodollars, our very own money, to fund the terrorists that seek to destroy our people.”
In June 2016, during the chaotic presidential campaign, Trump tweeted out: “Saudi Arabia and many other countries that gave vast amount of money to the Clinton Foundation want women as slaves and to kill gays. Hillary must return all money from such countries!”
To silence now President Trump, Saudi Arabia offered a promise to spend at least $110 billion on “American weaponry — one of the biggest arms deals in history.” The LA Times wrote, “This weapons deal, the president said, is all about U.S. jobs. Yet how many Americans want to work to arm the country that, as Citizen Trump said, ‘blew up the World Trade Center’?”
The previously mentioned Alex Jones, who has proven himself a truth-teller but also an Israeli whore and puppet came out and said Trump has threatened the Saudis and told them not to use their weapons to fund terrorism. This does not seem to be rooted in reality however. Today, Trump still perpetuates the claim that Iran must stop its terrorist-related activities because it is fomenting disarray throughout the Middle East, when they are simply planting their flag in Syria, defending a regime rightly in power and in Iraq, where chaos has been the status quo since the American invasion in 2003.
9/11 truth movements continue to fight on and are gaining traction in the age of YouTube. These truth-seekers regularly dismissed as conspiracy theorists are seeping into the mainstream as their scientifically-backed evidence is being promoted on the Internet. A growing number in the scientific, engineering, and architecture communities are questioning the U.S. government narrative of Middle Eastern jihadists carrying out the deadliest attack on American soil on.
The “Truthers” are getting the incontrovertible evidence that 9/11 was an inside job out to the world. Hoping to reach a tipping point point one day, they are relying on video evidence that cannot be ignored. Seeing for their own eyes the perplexing fall of WTC 7 and other confounding pieces of information coming out around the events of 9/11, Americans are starting to come around to the idea of something not adding up, judging for themselves what they think really happened, since the government won’t tell us.
The truth is out there. The seeds of doubt have been planed. But will the tree of truth blossom and those responsible be held accountable for their crimes? Free thinking is on the rise in the U.S. at last and we need to promote the evidence that proves that the government is lying to us about 9/11.
