They marked the anniversary of the "demolition" of the Plasco Building. No word on the Sao Paulo collapse though.

The Lawyers Committee gave the U.S. Attorney a list of names of people who may know something about 9/11 to go along with the previous filing. Surely big news there.

Nothing new about Hulsey though. In fact, just looking at the home page you would not even be aware the Hulsey study was a thing. Biggest, most expensive (I suspect) undertaking they have done but not even mentioned on the home page.
Obviously a rush to sing the petition.

Oystein indicated that in May of 2018 they reached the 3,000 signature mark, then lost one. So in the 10 months or so since they have accumulated a yuge 120 additional signatures. It's a wave of support! Woohoo

In addition, they added about 700 signatures in the "Members of the Public" part of the "Petition". In total, they now have almost 26,000 signatories. After almost 12 years!

The Truth Movement has variously claimed to have "millions" on their side, and on several occasions, leading Truthers have voiced an expectation, or a hope, that some petition, or group, would reach and exceed 1 million. I have several example, e.g. from AE911Truth themselves (the "ReThink911" campaign, their former board member Wayne Coste, from David Cole, who is a leading member of the "Lawyers' Committee for 9/11 Inquiry".

Ae911T is short of a million by a factor of almost 40.
In each of the last 3 years, they added under 1,000 signatures.
There is no upward trend, there is a downward trend.
They will not get 1 million signatures even in a thousand years the way they are going!
And a million really is not that much! 1,457,218 Americans voted for Jill Stein of the Green party in the 2016 presidential elections, that was just over 1% of valid ballots.

I am glad Truthers do petitions and social media groups so much: They present the evidence all the time that their "movement" is tiny in numbers, insignificant in reach and importance, and lacking actual movement.

And lacking in actual truth.
