Joshua Blakeney and Anthony J. Hall Investigate Michael Shermer’s Academic Credentials

From Joshua Blakeney: Hello Friends and Comrades, Here is the latest You Tube instalment depicting the unfolding saga implicating Michael Shermer, Claremont Graduate University and University of Lethbridge. Michael Shermer delivered a lecture at the University of Lethbridge on September 23, 2010 http://www.uleth.ca/events/why-people-believe-weird-things-lecture-michael-shermer-794 entitled “Why People Believe Weird Things,” in which he attempted to discredit those who are skeptical about 9/11 by conflating such investigators with Holocaust Deniers and UFO spotters. Stunned and perplexed by this substandard approach to 9/11 Studies Professor Hall and I resolved to critically investigate Shermer, suspecting that he could not possibly be someone who has…

On 9/11 Bullshit

“It is just this lack of connection to a concern with truth – this indifference to how things really are – that I regard as of the essence of bullshit.”  Henry G. Frankfurt, On Bullshit p. 33-34 America is drowning in 9/11 bullshit. I’m not talking about the “conspiracy theories” that Cass Sunstein deplores. Nor am I talking about the Official Conspiracy Theory (OCT) per se. Yes, the OCT is bullshit. But only 16% of Americans believe the OCT. That mentally-challenged minority is not the problem. The problem is that the 84% that doesn’t believe the OCT – most of…

Untruther Michael Shermer Caught Posing as Professor!

Click here, and forward to the last ten minutes of today’s show, to hear Professor Anthony Hall expose “Professor” Shermer on Truth Jihad Radio. Michael Shermer, editor of Skeptic Magazine, has been caught impersonating a professor. Oddly enough, Shermer – a leading 9/11 untruther – has been falsely claiming to be an Adjunct Professor of Economics at Claremont University, home of leading 9/11 truth scholar Dr. David Ray Griffin.  While pretending to be a professor, Shermer also travels around the lecture circuit impersonating a skeptic. Oddly, his skepticism does not extend to the official story of 9/11. As editor of…

9/11 as Black Swan

A review of Nassim Nicholas Taleb‘s The Black Swan: The Impact of the Highly Improbable by Kevin Barrett, TruthJihad.com 9/11, we can all agree, was a highly-improbable, high-impact event on which fortunes were made and lost. I personally lost about two million dollars on 9/11. In 2004, I turned down a University of California post-doc because it was funded by the 9/11-disinfo-spreading Ford Foundation, thereby stepping off the academic career track in favor of 9/11 truth activism. As a 45-year-old, I would have been expected to average at least $75,000 per year for about 25 years had I labored on…

Hamza Yusuf and Yusuf Estes: “Diplomatic” truth-seekers?

by Kevin Barrett, www.TruthJihad.com A Muslima for 9/11 truth, who helped us personally deliver 9/11 truth materials to Sheikh Hamza Yusuf’s Zaytuna Institute, recently forwarded a video of the Sheikh’s passionate defense of truth and justice, and suggested that M911T may have helped inspire this kind of speech: Unfortunately, Hamza Yusuf apparently has not yet publicly spoken out for 9/11 truth, even though in the above video he does excoriate CIA drug dealing. He may be concerned that if he took a public pro-9/11-truth stance, his effort to establish Zaytuna University as the first Muslim university in the USA would…

Why They HATE Hearing the Truth About 9/11

Why do so many people throw their hands over their ears and let out a scream of horror when confronted with the evidence that 9/11 was an inside job? Laura Knight-Jadczyk, last night’s radio show guest, cited research showing that when people are given negative information about their leaders, the brain’s emotional circuits override the cognitive ones; a blast of bad neurochemicals triggers a negative emotional state, which is only relieved by positive emotions when the person figures out a way – no matter how irrational – to discount the information. In other words, when we offer someone evidence that…

Physics prof Denis Rancourt speaks out on 9/11 — and gets it half right!

Physics professor and academic freedom fighter Denis Rancourt appeared on the Kevin Barrett Show yesterday and agreed that the implosion of World Trade Center Building 7 was clearly a case of controlled demolition — but that the destruction of the Twin Towers might not have been! (The discussion of 9/11 occurs during the last 20 minutes of the show.) Dr. Rancourt argued that the gravitational energy released by the Towers’ coming down was great enough, and the mysteries of how various materials interact with each other under such conditions mysterious enough, to cast doubt on many of the apparent “smoking…

Sunlight Disinfects Sunstein – Now Bring on the War Crimes Tribunals

Cass Sunstein argues that the government should infiltrate 9/11 truth groups, “disable” 9/11 “conspiracy purveyors,” and thereby promote the spread of “beneficial cognitive diversity.” To my readers, David Ray Griffin’s new book Cognitive Infiltration is absolutely brilliant. It elegantly does several things at once: * Puts forward  key 9/11 evidence; * Reveals the slightly hilarious inadequacy of the  official story defenders’ case,  as exemplified by Cass Sunstein’s “Conspiracy Theories” article; * Uses irony to demolish the neocons’ philosophy of the noble lie — the philosophy that in all probability led directly to the 9/11 inside job. David has been out…

Anthony J. Hall and Joshua Blakeney Challenge Michael Shermer About His 9/11 Denialism

This just in from my friend Josh Blakeney of the University of Lethbridge (Alberta): Dear Friends and Comrades, Here is the latest action by Prof. Anthony J. Hall and I : We were so disgusted with Prof. Michael Shermer’s lack of knowledge about 9/11 that we were compelled to intervene during his parodic lecture at the University of Lethbridge last night. Shermer purports to be a skeptic (his magazine is named “Skeptic Magazine”) who has read “ALL of David Ray Griffin’s books” (DRG is actually his colleague at the Clairmont Graduate School ). However, Shermer is clearly somebody who has…
