Jersey Girls Who Emerged After 9/11 Stay Activists

The terrorist attacks of Sept. 11, 2001 turned them into widows and the four Jersey Girls, as they became known, turned themselves into activists.

A decade after the attacks, at least two of them are still trying to make change in public policy. In doing so, they’ve broadened their focus from post-attack truth-finding, the cause that brought them together nearly 10 years ago.

Lorie Van Auken is now a beekeeper who is pressing the federal Environmental Protection Agency to ban a pesticide that some blame for Colony Collapse Disorder, which has been killing honeybees.

Kristen Breitweiser blogs on politics and national security. Though those are issues tied to 9/11, she doesn’t write just about the attacks.

“I think a lot of times when people suffer tragedy or go through something in their own life, they feel compelled to turn it into something better,” Breitweiser said.

Many of the spouses, parents and children of those killed in the terrorist attacks did that.

They set up foundations to honor the best traits of their lost loved ones. They lobbied for tax breaks for the victims, fair deals from the Victims’ Compensation Fund and a burial site at ground zero.

The four stay-at-home moms who lived relatively carefree lives in suburban Monmouth County became some of the most visible faces of the families of the dead and their main cause at the time: pushing the federal government to study the attacks — whether there was intelligence that could have prevented them, and whether the response once they began was adequate. They were subjects of scores of articles, multiple books — including a memoir Breitweiser published in 2006 — and a documentary film, “9/11: Press for Truth.”

The fame and the civic engagement, born of tragedy, came fast.

“I had a very complacent life: we voted, we paid taxes, we volunteered. That was it,” Breitweiser said. “That was the extent of our contribution.”

Two of the Jersey Girls, Patty Casazza and Mindy Kleinberg, did not respond to requests for interviews for this article and have not granted any interviews for the last few years.

All four had husbands working in the twin towers of the World Trade Center.

After 9/11, they united over their mounting frustration that the whole story wasn’t being told.

Answers in Absolute for ‘Why 9/11?’

August 18, 2011

by Sibel Edmomds   source: Boiling Frogs Post    Aug. 18, 2011

Why ‘some’ Still Question, Seek Answer(s) & Accountability

For ‘some’ reason I have been receiving more than a few ‘eye-rolling’ responses when I mention our theme for the month leading up to September 11- the tenth year. You and I know where the conscious but mostly subconscious eye-rolling and in some cases eye-aversion reactions come from. A very few bold ones are courageous enough to actually put this reaction into words. They ask ‘why can’t some people just let it go?’ They comment, ‘enough already with this 9/11 subject!’ Many of these same people are actually very outspoken and active in combating civil liberties related issues and abuses such as NSA Illegal Domestic Wiretapping, Rendition and Torture, FBI National Security Letters, TSA’s outrageous abuses …and the long list goes on. However, for ‘some’ reason they see ‘this 9/11 thing’ as a pointless nuisance, and wonder why some people don’t give up and keep bringing ‘it’ up. After all, the majority of these people consider 9/11 as ‘case closed,’ and a few regard it as a ‘cold case.’

I am not going to get into the ‘some’ reasons for this post; although, I have plenty to say on the subject. Instead, for the purpose of this piece, and for those audiences, I am going to answer the ‘whys.’ Why ‘some’ still question and seek answer(s) and accountability on 9/11.

Why 9/11? Because ‘they’ claim that’s what gives them the right to override our Constitution and all other laws guaranteeing our liberties and privacy.

Why 9/11? Because that’s what ‘they’ claim as justification for every one of our many wars.

Why 9/11? Because that’s what ‘they’ say is  the  reason for us having to be violated, humiliated, groped and fondled for the ‘privilege’ of travel.

Why 9/11? Because that’s when ‘they’ began the illegal eavesdropping of all our communications.

Bill Clinton Coming to Napa on Sunday 10/17

October 16, 2010

Any questions for the ol’ old boss an’ theif? Examples: Why didn’t you take out Bin Laden? Why did you repeal the Glass-Steagle Act? Would you apologize to the American working class for NAFTA and “Free” Trade agreements in which we are still losing jobs for international business models?  Waco? Oklahoma City? Why don’t you acknowledge the demolition of WTC 7? What do you say to the new videos  acquired by FOIA that have clearly audible explosions, and eyewitness accounts of explosions, including from the firefighters on the scene?

Former President Bill Clinton, who is using his considerable star power to campaign for threatened Democrats throughout the country, will make a stop in Wine Country on Sunday.

Clinton will be speaking in Napa at the Uptown Theater on 3rd Street at 2 p.m. The event is free and open to the public, with doors opening at 1 p.m.

But Clinton fans who hope to have the chance to meet him are advised to get there early, since organizers are expecting far more hopeful attendees than the 860 the venue can hold. When Clinton held a similar event in Napa two years ago, hundreds were turned away.

Documentary on 9/11 Attacks will Soon be India’s First E-Film

September 21, 2010

This is really good news if you were to ask me! I can’t wait to see the film.

source: DNA India   Sep 21, 2010

Over the past few years, budding filmmaker and self-proclaimed social activist, Xahid has been poring over 9/11 literature, news reports and TV clips in order to cull material for his documentary, 9/11 T-error: The Biggest Lie of the Century. Touted as India’s first e-film, the 75-minute documentary will only be released over the internet.

The film raises uncomfortable questions and accuses the United States of engineering the terror attacks. We figured it would be easier to release it on a website and social networking sites such as Facebook and Twitter,” said the 33-year-old, who plans to eventually take his documentary to cinema halls.

Xahid insists that 9/11 was “an inside job and was scripted like a big reality show”. The film has footage of US writers and politicians questioning the country’s role in the terror attacks and its aftermath. “Images of Osama bin Laden claiming responsibility for the attacks are blurry and some experts believe it’s not really him,” Xahid said.

“Progressive” Huffington Post Censors Jesse Ventura, 9/11 Questions

March 12, 2010

Update #1: Please see the article that was censored by the Huffington Post here.

The story below is from Raw Story. The video above is from Russia Today.      March 12, 2010

“I can’t believe the Huffington Post today will practice censorship,” Ventura says in astonishment. “I’ve got news for them. … I won’t ever write for ‘em again.”

Ventura had posted an item on Tuesday which took note of a recent conference at which “more than one thousand architects and engineers signed a petition demanding that Congress begin a new investigation into the destruction of the World Trade Center skyscrapers on 9/11.” He also quoted a few paragraphs from his new book, American Conspiracies, to explain why some of those experts see signs of controlled demolition.

This Week in 9/11 (Feb 15 – 21)

February 22, 2010

By Brian Romanoff      Feb 22, 2010

This week in 9/11 was indeed no less filled with information than last week. A summary is necessary.

One more Congressman, Jason Chafetz of Utah expressed some reason while talking about 9/11. Congressman Chafetz even knew Stephen Jones by name saying that he “has met with him” in the past. Do you know Stephen Jones yet? 

Speaking of news, the Architects and Engineers for 9/11 Truth group made KPFA and many other media outlet’s reports this week (here, here, and here). Richard Gage AIA, Stephen Jones, David R. Griffin and Eric Lawyer announced the achievement of over 1000 architects and engineers who are demanding a new investigation into the destruction of the 3 skyscrapers of 9/11. Many more news groups will carry this in the coming weeks I am sure.

A New Hampshire group has been advocating for a new investigation and have made headlines in their area. The following is taken from Ted Walter at 9/11 Blogger:

Last week it became official! At least ten towns in New Hampshire will have the following question on the ballot at this spring’s town meetings:

Shall New Hampshire’s Congressional Delegation be instructed to pursue a new and independent investigation to address thoroughly all of the evidence and unanswered questions related to the events of September 11, 2001?

Former Malaysian Prime Minister Follows Up on Recent 9/11 Remarks

January 24, 2010
By  Dr. Mahathir Mohamad  source: Chedet   Jan 23, 2010
1. In my speech at the conference on the support for Palestine (Al Quds) on Jan 20, 2010, I said that if they can make the film Avatar, they can stage the attack and collapse of the World Trade Centre in New York.

2. The press report seems to suggest that there was no real destruction of the two towers but it was just some kind of theatrical trick. It is of course a fact that the two towers were destroyed after two aircrafts crashed into them.

3. A lot of people in America (the apologists will dismiss them as conspiracy theorists) questioned whether the towers collapsed because the planes crashed into them or that something else caused them to come down. These people have reproduced videos taken by media people showing the attack and the collapse of the towers, pointing out certain peculiar features. I have seen the three-hour long video which is widely distributed.

4. Those people who watched the live telecast of the attack and the collapse of the towers will remember as I remember, that both towers collapsed straight down, floor upon floor. They did not lean to their sides as they collapse. The manner of their collapse was like the pictures we see of multi-storied buildings being demolished by demolition experts. When demolishing a skyscraper in a built-up area the experts ensure that as the towers collapse they would not lean to the side and strike neighbouring buildings.

5. The collapse of the two towers was typical of demolition of skyscrapers by experts in America. It was too clean, each tower collapsing upon itself, not touching each other or the buildings surrounding them.

6. One thing that is never mentioned almost is the collapse of a third building which was neither hit by aircraft or by the two towers. This building, described as building number 7, is slightly more than half the height of the WTC towers.

Climate Science: Observations versus Models

January 9, 2010
by Richard K. Moore    source: Global Research

If a man is offered a fact which goes against his instincts, he will scrutinize it closely, and unless the evidence is overwhelming, he will refuse to believe it. If, on the other hand, he is offered something which affords a reason for acting in accordance to his instincts, he will accept it even on the slightest evidence. – Bertrand Russell, Roads to Freedom, 1918

Science and models

True science begins with observations and measurements. These lead to theories and models, which lead to predictions. The predictions can then be tested by further measurements and observations, which can validate or invalidate the theories and models, or be used to refine them.

This is the paradigm accepted by all scientists. But scientists being people, typically in an academic research community, within a political society, there can be many a slip between cup and lip in the practice of science. There are the problems of getting funding, of peer pressure and career considerations, of dominant political dogmas, etc.

“We do not believe you!”; German Business Journal Questions 9/11

January 9, 2010

source: 9/11 Video    Berlin, Jan. 8, 2010

“We do not believe you!” – The magazine “FOCUS Money” questions the official version of 9/11
“More and more doubts”

The new issue of the german business magazine “Focus Money” (Nr. 2/2010) carries a detailed story on  9/11.

“FOCUS Money”,  is presenting most of the crucial arguments and contradictions on five glossy pages. Among other questions the article suggests that the collapse of the World Trade Center could have been a controlled demolition.

In addition, the article suggests serious doubts about the “madness” of the critics, which are usually called “conspriracy theorists”.
