National September 11 Memorial and Museum

The notion of 'thousands of victims' was crucial to generate universal public outrage. However, having 3000 angry families breathing down their necks was never part of the perps' demented plan. Our ongoing analyses and investigations suggest that NO one died on 9/11.

Their excuse for the repeated imagery is probably that it's 'concept art' — or a stage of art design in architecture before the final decisions have been fleshed out. The problem is that the vicsim imagery ("victims") actually look like architectural concept art in the first place.

It is very reminiscent of the way the Hiroshima bomb museum was done — an overwhelming "wall of faces" in order to stun and baffle.

The sheer effectiveness of this "wall of faces" model for propaganda has been primed in us for a long time, as media after media — from high school year books to Celebrity Squares to Family Guy — have used the grid of shoulders-up portraits (with conscious intent or not) to keep our awareness ready to "download" this as a valid way of fast-track processing and legitimizing of crowds.

Just pause for a moment and think about how strange it is that when we are in an actual crowd of people, our nerves tense up, we go 'jungle' instinct, we unconsciously watch for sudden events or movements, we scan the massive groups of strangers for faces, we pick up on familiar faces, we avoid situations that 'feel' wrong, we as a species navigate stressful crowds of ourselves like probably no other time in human history.

And yet, when we calmly look at a crowd of rectangularized portraits in a book, publication, media or museum, such as this "September 11 Memorial [to a virtual narrative of 'tragedy' that happened solely in cyber space and of which no physical proof exists]", all the faces suddenly become "okay" and "legitimate". As if deadening them in the form of portraits calms us so much from the brain's need to calculate and process huge amounts of human movement, that we shut our brains down, way down into the realm of passive acceptance. Because the portraits are not capable of causing threat to ourselves or our loved ones.

As sympathetic people, we are even more ready to extend our feelings to these non-living portrait faces, in whatever context they have been rectangularized, because feeling safe from them allows us to gossip about them, speculate about them, share stories about them.

The "wall of faces" is almost an instant trigger for people to bring up any and all stories ever heard about any of the faces presented. We might eagerly shift from face to face, hungering and feeding on data about them.

But rejecting any face outright, particularly in the crowd of other faces, is quite subconsciously more difficult.

How could someone look at this entire wall of people in the lighting demanding attention on it, even as freaky and distorted as the "faces" may appear, and with the deadness of it so calming on the senses, still not take the opportunity to run for the chance of orienting one's self in a simulated crowd?

This type of "memorial" to unproven entities, with no proper context given for the state of research on them, is not only insidious and immoral; it defies any sort of claim related to "getting unconscious permission" from the Lord, or a God or from the viewer to lie.

It is simply a lie. A propaganda lie of the worst kind, used explicitly to excuse undemocratic decision-making on our policies of war, our policies of voting, and our policies of decision-making itself. It is surely an attempt to integrate technological factors of computing, simulation and military psychological attacks in the people-organizing systems of the so-called "super class". Just why this kind of thing has gone widely unnoticed for so long is not a credit to our intelligence as a species. We can only pray that this year, the crassness and ineptitude with which they've handled such a massive project will lead to the exposure and arrest of these persons responsible.

Who Funds the National September 11 Memorial?

Who Funds (And Who Is Funding?) The 9/11 Memorial?

While the museum’s website explains how the the proceeds benefit ‘developing and sustaining’ the memorial which is run by executives with privately-funded six-figure salaries ...

from Is the 9/11 memorial museum gift store a tasteless idea?, May 19, 2014 By Christopher Koulouris ( http://scallywagandvagabond.com/2014/05 ... less-idea/ )

This quote is from another angle of the propaganda strategy to bombard people with useless questions that fail to question the scientific evidence for a 100% faked event with fake deaths. In this case, the article focuses on whether or not cashing in on death is moral. It avoids the question of whether cashing in on ignorance and emotional instability from a traumatic propaganda event and offering false answers (in the form of emotional stability on token items like stuffed toy rescue dogs) is moral.

The full fundraising section on the Nazi-like Wikipedia Authority's opinion of events helpfully offers us this:

Fundraising

The Foundation has fundraising responsibilities because of the tasks assigned to it by the Lower Manhattan Development Corporation (LMDC). The Foundation is to own, operate and finance:

  • National September 11 Memorial, the formal "Reflecting Absence" memorial.
  • National September 11 Memorial Museum, a museum to tell the story of the events.

John C. Whitehead was chairman of both LMDC and the World Trade Center Memorial Foundation. He announced his resignation in May 2006. Former LMDC President Kevin Rampe will become chairman of the LMDC. New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg replaced Whitehead as chairman of the National September 11 Memorial & Museum.

Thomas S. Johnson, chairman of the foundation's executive committee announced on May 9, 2006:

The decision was made to not actively pursue new fund-raising efforts until complete clarity can be achieved with respect to the design and costs of the project. Cost concerns emerged publicly last week with the disclosure of an estimate by the construction manager, Bovis Lend Lease, that the memorial and museum would cost $672 million and that it would take a total of at least $973 million to fully develop the memorial setting with a cooling plant, roadways, sidewalks, utilities and stabilized foundation walls. An estimate earlier this year put the cost of the memorial and memorial museum at $494 million.[28]


On May 26, 2006, Gretchen Dykstra resigned as president and chief executive officer of the World Trade Center Foundation.[29] The current president and CEO of the Foundation, Joseph C. Daniels, was appointed in October 2006.[30]

The memorial projects were eventually toned down, and the budget was cut to $530 million.[31] Heavy construction for the memorial began in August 2006, and despite delays, the National September 11 Memorial & Museum was still confident that the memorial would be complete by September 11, 2011.[32]

FRIENDLY WARNING TO ALL 9/11 MUSEUM VISITORS

Be warned, folks. If you go to New York and decide to dish out $24 to visit the "9/11 MUSEUM AT GROUND ZERO" - be careful not to ask any questions to any other fellow museum visitors. You will be instantly tracked / blocked by the security crew of the museum - and asked to leave the premises. As I understand it, not even your $24 entrance-fee will be reimbursed.


"Reporter Kicked Out of 9/11 Museum for Asking a Question Without Permission"
http://nymag.com/daily/intelligencer/20 ... stion.html


Now, don't get me wrong: of course the above media story - in all likelihood - never happened. It's just an umpteenth MSM-concocted-propaganda-charade & mockery that they diffuse just to send us a "warning-message" of their own. The underlying and not-so-subtle message being: "Don't you dare question anyone /or anything while visiting the sacred and historical 9/11 mausoleum - or you're OUT."

But hey, PLEASE DO buy our T-shirts, memorial-teddy-bears and educational 9/11 DVD's!" :rolleyes: :puke:

I nurture a slightly overly-wishful feeling / inkling that this exceedingly tawdry $500 million museum (raised with US taxpayers' savings) may well become - whether in near or distant future - an epochal symbol of the impending and inevitable collapse of the American society as we know it. The unmitigated impudence oozing from this pathetic monument to the 3000 digital vicsims of 9/11 must, sooner or later, attract a critical mass of honest peoples' disgust towards the current cretins controlling this planet. Yes, I'm talking about some kind of revolution.

If this doesn't happen - well... we are all fu@#ed.

Right, don't dare ask any questions. I believe this was built (along with the other memorials) to keep the story going for years to come. Future generations are to read about it in history books and the monuments help them keep the psyop alive. I honestly struggle now when teaching my kids history because I really don't trust what we are told happened all those years ago. It's really sad that they can dupe so many people with digital fakery.

Who Funds the National September 11 Memorial?

Postby hoi.polloi on May 25th, 2014, 7:43 pm

More in-our-face proofs that the typical and expected Rockefellers and banking institutions that fund the news (a.k.a. propaganda), fund war campaigns and fund the rebuilding afterwards — are behind the latest destruction of the Manhattan block and the reconstruction (of the memorial and the planned financial skyscraper meant to scrape more funds from the public and into the coffers of the rich). From: http://www.renewnyc.com/AboutUs/board.asp

Even on the face value of the dubious official lists of power, the hierarchy seems to go something like this:

Loose Affiliation of Individuals with Enormous Influence
{including}
U.S. Departments (energy, intelligence, defense)
Council on Foreign Relations (undemocratic power lobby)
U.S. and International Banking Powers (Chase, Morgan Stanley, US Bank, etc.)
Rockefellers (Rockefeller family, organizations and structures)
Oil price control (Goldman Sachs)
Property bubble control of the 90's, 00's, 10's (Freddie Mac, Fanny Mae)
Life Insurance control (Prudential, Allianz)
Speculative market control (Wall Street, New York Stock Exchange)
Education/Propaganda (media, public relations, higher education)

---------- V -----------
creates/lends power to
---------- V -----------

Lower Manhattan Development Corporation

---------- V -----------
creates/lends power to
---------- V -----------

9/11 Memorial Museum


So just what is this connection? And how do we know who is behind the
Lower Manhattan Development Corporation (LMDC)?

Continuing to follow the trail of money/power, here is a sampling of the members of the LMDC, who are the funding providers behind the Memorial (in other words, where DiNero et al get the 9/11 money to play with).

Weisbrod has more than 35 years of experience serving the people of New York. He has left his mark on some of the city’s most dynamic and fastest-growing neighborhoods.

Weisbrod’s service in government extends back to the Lindsay administration, which he joined as a young lawyer at the Department of Relocation. He was appointed by Mayor Koch to spearhead the city’s efforts to transform Times Square, and he also served as the Executive Director of the New York City Department of City Planning and Chairman of the New York City Loft Board.

He was previously a partner at the firm HR&A from 2011 through February, 2014, where he managed the successful rezoning of the Hudson Square area in Manhattan into a dynamic hub for creative industries and new housing, including up to 700 affordable units.


Now if you want to ignore the Rockefeller connections, Council on Foreign Relations connections, numerous high-profile banking institutions, military, government and generally snarky and imperious attitude in the authorities represented here — with so few actually relevant qualifying descriptions (I am wondering for example, where is all their experience in neighborhood planning, zoning, community development, etc.? It sounds like all forceps muscle and no heart muscle for a bunch of people that supposedly love Manhattan.) — be our guest, of course.

You might say to yourself: but of course it's a bunch of military, government, security and education complex connections. Who else would have the qualifying experience to simply remake Manhattan however they choose?

To such an attitude, I should only agree and say, "But the imperial and the power-hungry are still the board of directors."

The implied MO of this board should be clear enough. Pride, arrogance, greed, money, wielding the authority/might of our political and financial world to do what, exactly? Benefit who, exactly? Just what kind of people does this board favor and claim to love so well?

The very liars, pigs, bastards and the lot of them in each other's pies. Big money collecting from the poor and giving big money to itself. How have we allowed such corruption? How can we just allow it to continue?

These must be read to be believed, if you pardon an expression.

http://www.renewnyc.com/AboutUs/BoardMeetingsArch.aspx

The LMDC has two forms of meetings: public and secret. They wasted little time after the alleged terrorist attacks to organize the intention to create a memorial. On December 19, 2001, the LMDC met to discuss the pressing issues of the time, especially the "over 3000" who were "slaughtered". This figure was stated, curiously enough, before a final body count had been reached, since to this day almost 13 years later it is not clear how many officially died!

[Chairman Whitehead, the board's connection to the U.S. Navy, the Federal Reserve, the brokers of the New York Stock Exchange and the Department of Defense among other circles of influence] explained that it is his belief that a memorial, possibly done in two stages [???], is the first priority. Other priorities addressed were the needs of families living and of individuals working in the area. Chairman Whitehead also cited transportation and security issues as being of utmost importance in order to ensure that businesses return to and/or remain in the area.


According to New York law, such meetings must be made public except if having to do with property, in which case executive meetings may take place, beholden to nobody but the executive members. But Mister Whitehead has compassionately reminded all members present that the meetings are subject to such law. It's a good thing he wrote that, according to the public need for transparency in all things such as this.

:rolleyes:

Because again, they wasted no time in the January meetings stating it's time for executives-only meetings!

It is unclear how this kind of thing could be regulated at all, or how the NY law serves transparency if the executive members can merely claim their discussion is about to turn towards property. Any discussions of the following things allow for the meetings to become secret and private among its executives, with no public, press or non-executive members to be present:

a. matters which will imperil the public safety if disclosed;
b. any matter which may disclose the identity of a law enforcement agent or informer;
c. information relating to current or future investigation or prosecution of a criminal offense which would imperil effective law enforcement if disclosed;
d. discussions regarding proposed, pending or current litigation;
e. collective negotiations pursuant to article fourteen of the civil service law;
f. the medical, financial, credit or employment history of a particular person or corporation, or matters leading to the appointment, employment, promotion, demotion, discipline, suspension, dismissal or removal of a particular person or corporation;
g. the preparation, grading or administration of examinations; and
h. the proposed acquisition, sale or lease of real property or the proposed acquisition of securities, or sale or exchange of securities held by such public body, but only when publicity would substantially affect the value thereof.


http://www.dos.ny.gov/coog/openmeetlaw.html#s104

So, basically, anything to do with real power: law, money & property. How 'curious'.

The executives claimed to be present at the January 7, 2002 meeting included:

John C. Whitehead (aforementioned power broker during the Bush administration)
Roland W. Betts (classmate and Delta Kappa Epsilon (DKE) fraternity brother (according to Ickypedia) of George W. Bush, as well as lead owner in Bush's Texas Rangers partnership)
Paul Crotty (A Bush nominated Senator and leader of the New York region of Verizon Communications — formerly part of the Bell/AT&T monopoly)
Lewis M. Eisenberg (Chairman of the Port Authority, also appointed by a Bush nominee)
Richard "The President of Capitalism" Grasso (CEO of the NY Stock Exchange who gave himself a $130million+ pay out then quit, advisory board of Bush's skull-and-bones school Yale)
Robert M. Harding (deputy mayor for Giuliani)
Edward J. Malloy (vicsim family member)
Madelyn Wils (alleged founding member of the group)
Howard Wilson (depressingly, this fellow was Commissioner of the New York City Department of Investigation and the Chief of Criminal and Civil Divisions of the US Attorneys Office for the Southern District of New York; which should explain just how deep the corruption of this city and this country is)
Deborah C. Wright (banking CEO, Harvard graduate and "Baptist")
Frank G. Zarb (head of NASDAQ)

And just why did the chairman require both Edward G Novotny & Associates — a New York based propaganda and public relations company — and Stefan Pryor — infamous bullshitter charged with leading education departments of New York — to be present at the meetings "for" him?

Here are some quotes from an article about this assistant to one of "the most anti-teacher" campaigns in recent history, in which Pryor garbles sentences. This may give us some insight into why his wordsmithery could be appreciated at any meeting with a severe case of 'obfuscationism':

Education Commissioner Stefan Pryor appeared on the WNPR program "Where We Live" this week. Here are three things he said in the first seven minutes.

1. "So we decoupled the state test data from evaluation for the second year for any district that wished to decouple it. We also made some rules around creating greater assurances around the security and efficiency of data management systems ..."

2. "The model that we established for evaluation with the inclusion of teacher observations of student learning indicators to making sure that we are looking at student outcomes and other features — that was arrived at by consensus through our Performance Evaluation Advisory Council."

3. "We received a waiver to enable us to administer the Smarter Balance Assessment this year on an optional basis, and a lot of other conclusions get drawn from that including the fact that we needed to decouple data, state data, from the evaluation system."

Deep breath. OK, several things.

When a person talks this way there are two possible causes. Either he does not know what he's talking about and wishes to hide that, or he is supremely aware of how empty his words are and wishes to hide that.

http://articles.courant.com/2014-02-07/ ... ncil-texts

The very next meeting, Pryor appears as Secretary of the entire board. Hmm. So we are getting the minutes taken by this guy from now on? Uh oh. Wait a minute. By April, he's already Deputy to the Chairman! Seriously!? And they note pointlessly and ridiculously that Madelyn's own Tribeca film festival is the best development of the area since the "attacks"?

What the fuck? Does anything actually happen in New York? Or is it a bunch of busy-looking nothingness made self-important by the sheer fact that it's somewhat dense and expensive? What a bunch of cozy executives and yes-folk this bunch is. I wonder what they might have needed to discuss in private each time that they called an 'executive meeting'?

Later in April, "the Chairman opened his remarks by noting that the Family Room had opened on April 8th. He stated that it is
located within LMDC’s offices on the 20th Floor of One Liberty Plaza overlooking the World Trade Center site.

The Chairman explained that the Family Room is a private place for families to go, with its own separate entrance, and is restricted only to family members. He provided an outline of the work involved in creating this private space for the families."

Wait ...

So a "room" has been opened within LMDC's offices? To host how many family members exactly, of the presumably tens of thousands that apparently must exist? And within this strict enclosed space in a highly secure building, say — here? — this is where the families were meant to be meeting with the city?

Sorry, but that's slightly confusing.

Foremost among the concerns of the known family members of victims?

Ms. Wright noted in particular the families’ concern about transportation reconstruction and the development of the World Trade Center site.


:wacko:

Because the first thing I would express concern about in the development, as a family member, is the ability to return time and time again to the place of my loved one's tragic death using efficient transportation, where I hope someone is making lots and lots of money. Sure, Ms. Wright. Did the families note their deep concern about whether the LMDC executives are receiving adequate bonuses? And how they would also really like Ms. Wright to get a pony and a summer home out of this whole tragedy, if possible?

What lucky happenstance that the traumatized families are the most concerned about the very things that Chairman Whitehead framed as the LMDC's concerns for a project: secure transportation and business development; not to mention the fact that Miss Wright happens to be such an excellent diffuser of the mass collective opinion of these thousands of distraught people. Almost Goddess like, really, in her capacity to channel the suffering into a sound business plan to make lots and lots of money for the local banks and businesses. Yes, I am certain that is foremost on the minds of all who suffer the shocking death of a loved one.

ab Irato and I joked that the 'Loose Affiliation of Individuals with Enormous Influence' may as well be an acronym which better explains their role in our world. I thought I would spend a few minutes thinking of something that describes the powerful CFR/cultish/banking/finance/military group like:

Loosely Influential Affiliation of the Rich and Shitheaded?

Low Intellectuals Amorous with the Rancidly Shallow?

Largely Idiotic Activists for Rambunctious Stupidity?

Lugubrious Isolationists Aggravating Resource Spills?

or perhaps just the psychopaths identified:

Loved that last one, Hoi... ^_^

And their BS never stops gurgling out of their underworld. I just bumped into one of the first 9/11 memorial-installations to be found in the lobby of the American Express corporate headquarters - at 3 World Financial Center. Apparently, you see, American Express lost 11 employees that day - and the firms' touching empathy extends to their dogs & cats...

"Each side is inscribed with the name of an employee and a few words, selected by those who knew them best, to summarize the people they were"

The New York Times - September 11, 2005:
''Eleven Tears'' was designed by Ken Smith, a 52-year-old landscape architect who lives and works in the former ''frozen zone,'' the area bordering ground zero that was evacuated right after 9/11. The installation consists of an 11-sided, 600-pound piece of natural Brazilian quartz that resembles a gigantic tear. This ''tear'' is set in a steel ring suspended from a 35-foot-high ceiling by 11 cables, and hovers over an 11-sided black granite fountain with the names of the employees cut into the 11 corners."

"The reflection of the 600-pound crystal in that dark pool of water is stunning; it resembles a crystal cone rising out of the depths. Even more remarkable are the 11 drops of water -- 11 invisible tears -- that fall at random intervals from the ceiling into the pool, creating ripples that expand and intersect in the water."

If I may - and while I'm at it - let me mention another pair of in-our-face turds thrown at us by the B.U.L.L.S.H.I.T.T.E.R.S. :

It is now official (well, so it seems, anyway): we now have, at long last, a FINAL & DEFINITIVE DEATH-TOLL for the 9/11 cinematic casualties - as confirmed on this welcome page of the "National Museum & Memorial" website :

"If you are a family member related to one of the 2,983 individuals listed on the Memorial, please click here for more information."

:rolleyes: Needless to say, 11+11 springs to mind... Also, and just to get it out of my guts, as I pondered about the 9/11 blockbuster movie and its 102min duration, my mind went back to the 'live TV' time-frames of its start and ending :

START of 9/11 movie: (starring "Flight11 striking WTC1") > 8:46 am (8+4+6=18)=9
END of 9/11 movie: (starring WTC1 collapsing on "LIVE TV") > 10:28 am (1+0+2+8)=11

I beg your pardon.

I feel as though the initial pattern of using 9 and 11 in tandem can make you think deeper than they actually care to think on the subject of numbers. But then you have this pool of 11 tears below an 11-faceted crystal and you realize the BULLSHITTERS truly are deranged about forcing their fake history through cheesy artistry.

OH what a wonderful article we can read on "The New Yorker" - you've gotta LOVE it ! :rolleyes:

"To get into the 9/11 Memorial Museum, you have to pass through a world-class security arrangement—a conveyor belt for shoes, belt buckles, cell phones; a three-second hands-above-your-head body scan—overseen by a notably grim private-security corps. “Stand there!” uniformed guards shout at those in line moseying ahead. “Don’t advance.” A terrorist planning to commit an atrocity at a museum devoted to the horrors of terrorist atrocities might seem unduly biddable to his enemy’s purpose, but then perhaps the security apparatus is itself a museum installation."

Poor, poor America... duped into believing that 2983 people died on 9/11 - and now being asked to pay to visit their 'graves'. How hoodwinked can you get? How far down will the average Americans bend down - in order to align with the official bullshit fed to them?

We are living in a surreal world - and this sad state of affairs is enabled by the gullibility of the masses. WHAT CAN WE DO ?

This is a real shame the New Yorker is one of the few intellectual magazines in the U.S. Their standards are really slipping. Some say this is because of the tenure of Tina Brown who made radical editorial changes there and who could,possibly, have ties to British intelligence. Doubly saddening is that this piece is written by Adam Gopnik, who is quite intelligent and quite the writer. His book length essay about his time in Paris entitled Paris to the Moon is simply lyrical. There is an old saw that says "don't ever meet your heroes," which should be updated to: "don't have any heroes."

I just got some feedback from a co-worker that visited family in New York City over the 4th holiday. She's the average dumbdown American that believes everything the Gov't controlled Mass Media tells her, a nice lady just doesn't realize the Real World we live in. SO she goes the new famous 911 memorial $24 bucks a head AND NO you can't just go in like general admission, patrons are scheduled when they can access the Museum. She also said it seems like a RACKET and has No Clue where all the money is going :P
