AZ State Senator Wants 9/11 Answers

By, Cheri Roberts-Piper – MTR News

Joining a long list of influential and credible citizens asking questions about the events of September 11, 2001 AZ State Senator Karen Johnsona Republican from District 18, steps up to the plate. A much loved Senator with many years of legislative experience and a laundry list of Republican endorsements under her belt she stands apart from the cowed and coerced Right wing of the isle on this issue and has gotten more and more vocal about it.

On May 3, 2008 she tells The Arizona Republic that,

“After three government investigations and more than six years, we still don’t have answers on 9/11”

At face value such a statement can mean many things however, she goes on to clarify,

“Think back to that day: Those towers didn’t just fall down. If they had, we would have had huge chunks of concrete breaking apart and falling into a massive pile of rubble. The buildings likely would have toppled erratically sideways and left a much larger pile of debris. But that’s not what we witnessed. The towers didn’t collapse – they disintegrated”.

So why would a Senator come forward almost seven years later?

“The events of 9/11 have never been properly investigated. It’s about time they were” she says.

Her thoughts on media coverage of 9/11 – including the reporting on the 9/11 Commission Report, the long awaited and incomplete NIST Report and general polling data were pretty clear,

“The mainstream media parrot the less-than-credible conclusions of the 9/11 Commission without giving any thought to the many omissions and inconsistencies. In a truly free country, the press would ask hard questions and do real investigating, but this is not happening. Only the alternative media, such as Internet news sites, have done any solid investigating”.

“The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), a federal agency, which evaluated the collapse of the towers, has yet to issue its report on Building 7. “We’ve had trouble getting a handle on Building 7,” said the acting director of their Building and Fire Research Lab.

Yet a number of private-sector engineers, architects, and demolition experts have not had that problem. They think Building 7 came down by controlled demolition. The building collapsed suddenly, straight down, at nearly free-fall speed. People heard the explosions, and saw the squibs and the characteristic billowing clouds of pulverized concrete so unique to demolitions. There is no reason to think that Building 7 came down for any other reason than explosive demolition.”

Many of us have come to not only expect non-news from our mainstream channels, but have stopped watching them entirely. Most real news with substance – whether local, state or national can be found sometimes days before it is reported on our television sets or in our papers and then only to be buried by more sensational stories involving Brittney Spears or matters in the entertainment sectors. News stories reflective of matters affecting the American People that are built upon vetted credible sources with a real investigative bent are few and far between – regardless of topic, and news regarding any non-conformist views of the official story on the terrorist attacks of Sept. 11, 2001 have been left for the blogisphere and other alternative mediums.

One should question why corporate owned media outlets are not seriously reporting on polls like Zogby that revealed 51 percent of Americans want Congress to investigate 9/11 further. That is a majority, surely that’s a number worth mainstream recognition not to be discounted with derision , but instead to be investigated and voiced from a platform where others who have quietly had the same unease and the… more here

Evidence Room: Hijacker’s DNA, FBI Fingerprints

By, Cheri Roberts-Piper MTR News

Stories have been written with headlines stating the FBI had the terrorists’ DNA before the Sept. 11th attacks. The information behind those headlines was rooted in chapter 30 – a two and a half page chapter titled The Terrorists, in the book Who They Were, Inside The World Trade Center DNA Story: The Unprecedented Effort To Identify The Missing by, Robert C. Shaler – Director of the Forensic Biology Dept in the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner (OCME) of New York. The information in chapter 30 briefly and unceremoniously outlines the DNA identification of three of the ten alleged terrorists that flew planes into NYC’s World Trade Center buildings.

The truth movement took bits and pieces from the chapter and came to the conclusion that the FBI already had the terrorists’ DNA before 9-11. While this may ultimately be true, the book in no way said anything like that. Unfortunately the 9-11 Truth movement glommed on to this as if it was ironclad proof of government involvement in the attacks and by perpetuating the unsubstantiated story they harmed the truth movements credibility. More importantly they missed what I believe is the real smoking gun evidence of FBI involvement in the crimes against America and her citizens on Sept. 11, 2001 by way of cover – up and finger pointing after the attacks. Evidence that I believe could be turned into a Federal indictment.

Before I go further, I must make a statement or disclaimer. I do not believe everyone within the walls of the FBI are bad people and I do not believe they were all involved in a conspiracy. However, I do believe there are people within the FBI that not only allowed the attacks to take place, but were a crucial part of the cover – up of the actual events; before, during, and after. I would also like to say that I do not believe the NYC’s Chief Medical Examiner’s Office (OCME) or its Forensic Biology Department were involved in any conspiracy to cover – up a crime however, I do believe they are guilty of negligence. Whether this was because they handled evidence that was believed to be that of the terrorists differently or for some other reason, I do believe they were unknowingly complicit in the misinformation that was manufactured and disseminated to the public.

In this article we will look at DNA technology and identification, evidence protocol, terminology and public statements by both the FBI and the NYC Medical Examiner’s Office (OCME). In doing so I will show how the only known scientific evidence connecting ant of the alleged hijackers to the attacks of Sept. 11th in NYC would be inadmissible in any US court of law and therefor should be pulled from any public record of the attacks. Additionally, the American people should be told the truth about the evidence and it’s handling in a clear manner so that they know beyond a shadow of a doubt what they have been told is quite possibly and most probably untrue.

Ricin Man, Part 3

By Cheri Roberts-Piper MTR News
On Thursday March 13th authorities announced that an Officer involved in the investigation of the Las Vegas Ricin incident tested positive for small amounts of Ricinine or Ricidine found in his system. Ricinine is an alkaloid (3-cyano-4-methoxy-N-methyl-2-pyridone) that shares a common plant source with Ricin, and its presence in the system infers Ricin exposure. However, the alkaloid substance is extracted from the seeds of the castor plant and does not derive directly from Ricin.

KTNV News in Nevada reportedly identified the Officer as Jim Mitchell and he is said to have no symptoms of Ricin poisoning. The Officer was one that arrived on the scene to search a Las Vegas hotel room on Feb. 26th – weeks after it’s occupant – who is believed to be suffering from Ricin exposure, called 911 on Valentines Day. Bergendorff had been transported to a local hospital for respiratory distress. He was reported to have fallen into a coma after arrival and remained so for many weeks although family members have reported differently and have said Bergendorff was merely heavily sedated.

Some people who read/see/hear the news on the Las Vegas Ricin case will feel a shiver of fear and then file it away in their “terrorists are out to get me” box, and some will pay little attention at all, but I urge the reader to look further into the known details of this case and the discrepancies and omissions I point out in today’s update as well as in two previous articles found HERE and HERE.

There have been no press reports stating where or when the poison was made. A home and storage unit in Utah along with the room in Las Vegas had been searched and all tested locations tested negative for any traces of Ricin. Officers themselves didn’t find the Ricin vials in the room when they searched the hotel room on Feb. 26th.

This begs the question of how and…LINK

Propaganda & Eggs, Shame on You Johnny Dee’s

After all these years one would think American’s would be more aware their government misled them however the propaganda can still be found in unusual places sowing seeds of hate and irresponsibly perpetuating the Iraq lie.

While having dinner last week at Johnny Dee’s – a local high desert CA restaurant, the MTR News crew was more than surprised by a few of the restaurants prominently featured menu items.

They have a hamburger called The Patriot Burger which by itself is not a big deal however on their breakfast menu we can see their patriotism is marred by ignorance and propaganda. They have a featured dish they have named Freedom Flag Wavers (formerly their French toast). A little propaganda with your eggs anyone?

Here is some background Johnny Dee’s should consider along with immediately correcting their menu… LINK
