As the sun sets in Washington DC – let us not lose faith in the latent power of the American people to awaken and force their elected representatives to deal with the actual crimes of 9/11.We reported back in October that we were Encouraging the Senate to ReThink 911 when we visited them during our September Action of the Month. We detailed Pamela Senzee’s visit with Ben Sundholm, Legislative Correspondent for Senator Jeff Flake (R-AZ). In this article we highlight the other actions we took to educate members of Congress while we were in Washington.
Wayne Coste, P.E., visited several Congressional offices the week before the DC911Truth Conference. We then invited conference attendees to join us in visiting their members of Congress. AE911Truth founder and CEO Richard Gage, AIA, hosted a group amounting to a dozen who traversed the honored halls the day after the conference.
We attempted at least two dozen drop-in visits, with a constituent, for each of these members of Congress:
Watch the recap of our meeting with Hampton Ray, staffer for Mark Rubio (R-FL) where Rick Shaddock had become a constituent. Richard Gage, AIA, Barbara Honegger joined Rick for this visit where, after seeing the evidence for the controlled demolition of WTC 7 Mr. Ray promised to watch the more revealing DVD “9/11: Explosive Evidence – Experts Speak Out”.
Pamela Senzee, a constituent of Sen. Jeff Flake arranged for Richard Gage, AIA to give a 15-minute presentation to staffer Ben Sundholm. Sundholm also agreed to watch the 88-minute “Experts Speak Out” and to bring it to the Senator’s attention. See follow-up letter below.
The US Senators for Richard Gage, AIA, Barbara Honegger, and Ursula Sheik are California’s Barbara Boxer and Diane Feinstein, to whose offices we hand-delivered our VIP pack.
Bob and Marti Hopper traveled from their home in Colorado to attend the DC911Truth Conference and to try to meet with their Senators and Representative in Washington. They promised to try to meet with Senator Udall back in Boulder during the Congressional recess. Bob and Marti are psychologists who are featured in the AE911Truth landmark film “9/11: Explosive Evidence – Experts Speak Out,” which has been mailed to all 535 US Senators and Representatives
Gage joined Massachusetts resident Tom Conway in an effort to meet with his Senator, Elizabeth Warren. Said Conway, “All we are asking for is an unimpeachable investigation that will let the chips fall where they may.”
This AE911Truth volunteer contingent debriefs and refuels at the Russell Senate Office Building to prepare for another intensive round of presentations. (L to R: Rick Shaddock, Thomas Conway, Barbara Honegger, Pamela Senzee, Bob and Marti Hopper, Chris Phillips, Ursula Sheik, and Richard Gage)
This was Richard Gage’s third trip to Washington DC. On each trip he learned more about what it takes to penetrate the wall of silence on Capitol Hill.
Said Gage, “Each time I go back I come away with the realization that these people are political animals – and are likely to continue doing nothing about the mass hypnosis and public myth known as 9/11, until their constituents either force them to do something, or force them out of office. We are now placing our focus on educating the American people directly – through efforts such as the ReThink911 ad campaign
To follow up on the distributed VIP packs, we sent follow-up letters similar to this one:
Legislative Correspondent for U.S. Senator Jeff Flake, AZ
Dear Mr. Sundholm,
Thank you for taking the time to meet with Richard Gage, AIA, founder of Architects & Engineers for 9/11 Truth, and myself. During our September 16, 2013, visit we informed you about the catastrophic destruction of the 47-story World Trade Center Building 7 on September 11, 2001. As we discussed, this destruction showed all of the hallmarks of a classic controlled demolition using explosives and showed none of the characteristics of a building failing by a gravity-only, fire-initiated progressive collapse.
We hope that you have been able to review the DVD and other materials that we left with you. They provide a great deal of important information documenting our concerns:
After your review, we hope that you passed the materials along to the Senator so that he is properly informed about this critical matter of national security.
To reiterate, I am asking the Senator to contact Dr. Patrick Gallagher, Director of NIST, to request a technical conference to “clear the air” on WTC 7, explain its free-fall acceleration, and provide the supporting analysis and computer model inputs that were used in developing NIST’s conclusions.
To be more specific, the attached letter dated January, 26, 2010 from NIST’s Catherine Fletcher to Ron Brookman says that if the computer input data were to be released it “might jeopardize public safety”. On the contrary, architects and engineers need this information in order to ensure public safety in tall buildings.
This refusal to release the World Trade Center Building 7 column C-79 input data, as described in FOIA #12-177 (denied, appealed to the Department of Commerce, denied again) was documented in two recent separate emails:
Email to Newman and Gallagher on 26 JUL 2013
Email to Newman and Gallagher on 24 SEP 2013
Never before has a series of engineering reports been so repudiated by the engineering and architectural professions. If we can’t trust engineering reports from government agencies, then what can we trust from the Federal Government?
Pamela Senzee, Constituent
Among those that have also put in their time to wake up our elected representatives are Wayne Madsen and Dick Gregory, whom we met up with at the 9/11: Advancing the Truth conference. Both these esteemed activists endorsed our 15-minute DVD Solving the Mystery of WTC 7, narrated by Ed Asner – the highlight of AE911Truth’s address Friday night before the conference.
