AE911Truth Making History in
24,000 Architects at SF AIA Convention Come Face to Face With 9/11 Truth
AE911Truth made an unprecedented, highly successful debut at the prestigious American Institute of Architects
(AIA) 2009 National Convention and Design Exposition. We spoke to hundreds of architects and must have added about
50 to our petitioners over the course of 3 days.
About 80% of the responses were positive, even though many were too wary to sign the petition after just a few minutes of consideration. People were generally open-minded
and curious. It was exciting to speak with all these professionals who were really “getting it.” Most architects, though not all,
were willing to listen and engaged positively with us.
Obtaining a booth at this year’s convention at San Francisco’s Moscone Center marks a significant accomplishment for us.
A structural engineer who is also an architect signed the petition. He has worked on 50- to 60-story buildings. Though he was aware of Building 7's collapse, he was completely unaware of its free-fall acceleration.
He immediately acknowledged that this implies a controlled demolition.
We also had the Virginia AIA Chapter CEO sign
the petition. He was already an AE911Truth supporter and quite aware of the issues, but at this event he invited us to his
major regional convention and offered us a free booth space!
AIA Convention Activities
Amid hundreds of exhibitions by manufacturers of buildings, tiles, and window coverings, our 10’x10’ booth,
with two large LCD screens showing the dramatic demolitions of the WTC Twin Towers and Building 7, stood out dramatically —
especially with the backdrop of our 7 professionally designed banners depicting the rest of the evidence and our mission.
Most of the time we had 5 to 7 volunteers, sharply dressed, who were engaging with the booth visitors —
the busiest booth around us by far!
Convinced architects were be able to sign, on the spot, our petition calling for a new investigation.
We were also giving away our latest brochures, our latest DVD, and our evidence cards.
We are very grateful for our volunteers, many of whom came from across the country.
Interview Hitting Big-Time Numbers on YouTube
Over 100,000 views in just a few days...
The Fox TV (KMPH) affiliate in Fresno asked the kind of questions the Truth Movement has been waiting for. On their "Great Day" program, anchors Kim Stephens and Kopi Sotiropulos afforded Richard a friendly atmosphere, asked interesting questions, and reacted to his startling information appropriately and with a degree of humor. Very much missing was the familiar combative style normally associated with TV talk shows on which 9/11 Truth guests appear.
The huge spinoff benefit is the magnifying power of the Internet. Big numbers started coming in immediately on YouTube. Although only a few days have passed since the interview, the segment reached as high as fourth place for the week in politics and news, and third place in most discussed. These numbers hopefully will go much higher.

Scientists Find Unignited Explosive Residues in WTC Dust
Red/Gray Chips Match Advanced Thermitic Materials Developed in US Government Labs
by Gregg Roberts
A team of scientists that includes 9/11 luminaries Steven Jones, Kevin Ryan, and seven other authors from three countries announced in April the long-awaited publication of their 25-page article "Active Thermitic Material Discovered in Dust from the 9/11 World Trade Center Catastrophe."
The team analyzed dust samples that were collected from four locations near Ground Zero. One sample was collected ten minutes after the North Tower exploded, so it could not have been contaminated with particles from the cleanup efforts. All four samples contained the same unusual, tiny red/gray chips, which turned out to consist not only of the ingredients of conventional thermite but also carbon, silicon, and other elements.
Two Seconds That Will Live in Infamy
Openness in Government Demands NIST Reconsider Significance of the Free-Fall Drop
by Dwain Deets
The National Institute for Standards and Technology (NIST), the government
agency responsible for investigating and reporting on the destruction of
World Trade Center Building 7, tried to avoid admitting that there was
any free-fall acceleration when the building came down on September 11,
2001. All the way to their draft final report on August 26, 2008, nearly
seven years after the event, the NIST report’s lead authors held
firmly to their position that free-fall did not occur.
Once NIST received comments on its draft report, it was more or less
forced to accept the indisputable facts based on the publicly available
videos proving that free-fall had occurred. David Chandler, a high school
physics teacher and AE911Truth researcher, provided the most compelling
argument in a video seen widely on YouTube, "The Free-fall Acceleration of Bldg 7 ."
In their final report, issued November 20, 2008, the NIST report’s
authors stated they had made a more detailed examination, and found a
2.25-second period in which the center roofline exhibited a “free-fall drop for approximately 8 stories.”
Chandler had measured a 2.5-second period.
The NIST report did not state the significance of a free-fall drop.
The significance is that during that period of free-fall,
all of the gravitational energy (also known as potential energy) is
being converted into energy of motion (also known as kinetic energy).
There is no energy available for doing other work, such as breaking up
structural columns, or causing structural pieces to be hurled out of the
way. The graphic chart is an illustration depicting these points.
NIST tried to hide its admission of free-fall from public view by not listing it
in the description of the changes it made in response to public comments. Admitting
to free-fall leads directly to the question, What source of energy eliminated the
8 stories of heavy, interlocked structural steel? The NIST report’s authors didnít
explain. They tried to hide this dramatic change of position, that WTC7 did display a
period of free-fall. However, gravitational forces alone can’t come close to explaining that.
The simple figure above, where section A had to have been instantaneously removed
in order for the section above (B) to exhibit a free-fall drop, is suggested as an
aid in explaining the NIST-free-fall issue to non-technical people. First on
the list are all U.S. Senators. Two matters of Senate business are candidates for
addressing this issue. One is the confirmation hearings of the head of NIST, who
serves under the Secretary of Commerce. The other is the proposed Truth and
Reconciliation Commission advocated by Senate Judiciary Chairman Patrick Leahy.
In the words of the title, “Two Seconds that Will Live in Infamy,” the
assertive attitude corresponds to a positive expectation towards President Obama’s
promise to “reestablish transparency and openness in government.” The processes are
in place to re-open NIST’s assessments of the WTC’s destruction. If this promise is
actually fulfilled, then the chances are very good these two seconds will indeed live
The Battle for Belief: A Sociologistís Research in 9/11 Argumentation
by Michael Armenia
“Reason and experiment have been indulged, and error has fled before them. It is error alone which needs the support of government. Truth can stand by itself.”
— Thomas Jefferson
We are at war, and one of the most critical and dangerous frontline is not in Afghanistan, Iraq or Iran. Rather, it is the battleground within the human psyche. Individual and collective minds are waging psychological warfare in what promises to be one of the most intense struggles in American history, if not all of human history. How do we communicate the truth about the events of 9/11 to those who have been deceived by the operation and its cover-up in the media? Are logic, reason, and science enough?
In the “battle for belief”, Person A offers truth demonstrating reality while Person B, knowingly or unknowingly, transmits lies and perpetuates myth. At the end of the day, the one with the most credibility wins. This much is supposed by Dr. Mark Jones, Ph.D., Assistant Professor of Sociology at Colorado College, who is embarking on a research project to study how both sides of a controversial issue communicate their ideas.

Where in the World is Richard Gage, AIA?
by Dean Fienberg
In the too-good-to-be-true category, Richard recently spoke in Santa Rosa to Phyllis Schlafly’s Eagle Forum, a right-wing conservative group of the highest order. The 45 Republicans present, after seeing the presentation, unanimously agreed that the 3 WTC high-rises were brought down by explosive controlled demolition. This astounding response may have untold significance when these Eagle Forum members pressure their chapter leaders from around the country to invite Mr. Gage to speak in their areas. This accomplishment would clearly confirm that 9/11 Truth transcends the political labels of Left and Right.
Richard recently traveled to Los Angeles to be interviewed for a new two-hour documentary produced by National Geographic, along with prominent 9/11 Truth investigators David Ray Griffin, Dylan Avery and Steven Jones. This documentary should appear on TV sometime this August.
Freedom Law School recently awarded Mr. Gage a plaque for truth and justice after he spoke at their conference in Irvine, CA from March 14-March 15. After Richard’s presentation to an audience of 115, six believers of the official story dropped to zero; twenty unsure people dropped to only four.
Richard sees numbers like these wherever he speaks. You could see such a transformation occur in your own town by inviting Richard to speak in your local area. Dates are still available in July and August. You could also show our DVD 9/11: Blueprint for Truth, which can be accomplished informally for groups of six or more, or in rented venues for up to 100 people. You can charge admission to collect expenses. AE911Truth can assist you if you call up and request our guidelines and join our film hosts' conference call!
Richard was a guest of honor and keynote speaker at the world premiere of the outstanding 9/11 Truth film The Core of Corruption in Denver at the Oriental Theater on April 6th. Many jaws hit the floor. "Core" relies heavily on mainstream-media news clips and includes many jewels of information that somehow slipped through the cracks after "the world changed." Last we all checked, the sun still rose in the east and set in the west, grass grows and water flows, but you know what I mean. Four sequels are scheduled that might reference 9/11 but will be broader in scope, helping to fill in the bigger picture.
More recent speaking engagements included Columbia, SC, on April 11, and Montreal, Canada on April 18, where audiences of 40 and 120 showed great support. About a dozen participants at each event had their belief in the official conspiracy story shattered. Returning to California, he spoke at Sonoma State College in Rohnert Park on April 24, and at Diablo Valley College in Pleasant Hill in early May.
Richard and AE911 Truth volunteers hosted a booth at the AIA 2009 National Convention and Design Exposition in San Francisco beginning on April 30. Many new petition signatures were gathered, and numerous architects, after vieweing an AE evidence presentation on several screens, were encouraged to express their previous and post-viewing understandings of 9/11 World Trade Center events. On May 2, Richard addressed convention attendees and others at the nearby Westin Market Street Hotel.
So where is Richard Gage? Well, probably not at home asleep in bed.
