Other than the over g bit, I cannot recall any of Kokomojojo's specific arguments. What I do recall is just basic contrarianism towards anything that was not conspiracy.

Trump is declared right by Internet liars -

http://911debunkers.blogspot.com/201...why-twins.html

Trump was right, 9/11 truth is based on BS people make up without thinking, without science; talk, the evidence used by internet kids who have no practical knowledge of physics, science, and math.

This web site continues to spew nonsense based on overwhelming ignorance. Has to be a scam to get 9/11 truth nuts to hit on the ads - follow the money, or are the authors of this dumbed down claptrap unable to do science.

Quoth the Donald "...I just think that there was a plane with more than just fuel..." and "...It just seemed to me that to do that kind of destruction..."

Some BS right there.

Please clarify. I hope you don't think the aircraft was filled with explosives.

Holy cow, can you cite those quotes?

Not that they're out of character, but I haven't seen them.

They are from the donald the day of 9/11, or the next from an interview.
Quote:
Donald Trump: Right. I just think that there was a plane with more than just fuel. I think obviously they were very big planes. They were going very rapidly, because I was also watching where the plane seemed to be not only going fast it seems to be coming down into the building. So is getting the speed from going down hill so to speak. It just seemed to me that to do that kind of destruction is even more than a big plane because you're talking about talking about steel, the heaviest caliber steel that was used on the building. These buildings were rock-solid and you know it's just an amazing amazing thing. This country is different today and it's going to be different than it ever was for many years to come.
These are first impressions, and don't mean much.
The impact's kinetic energy were more than a plane and fuel, there was velocity squared; adding up to equal energy to bombs ranging from 1300 to 2000 pounds of TNT. It was more than planes and fuel, it was kinetic energy.

Yes, first impressions from a person obviously out of his field of expertise, judging from his choice of words.
Might as well have asked the Trump Tower janitor for his impressions.

In a moment of boredom-inspired whimsy, I decided to have a little wander through the David Icke forum.
Quite glad I did, as I came across this thread, containing the following couple of gems:

Quote:
There were no planes at all on 9/11. WTC7 had a command centre within it and was supposed to "collapse" during the collapses of one of the twins.

This didn't work - so the just demolished it at he end of the day.
They blew up their own command and control centre? Where was that controlled from, then?

And this:
Quote:
In all probability the three remaining planes were diverted to military base ,and passengers sold on the ET slave market (I'm deadly serious)

The ET comment has to be a Poe, mate.

I cam across some Truthers in the wild on FB recently. Waded in on them in a slightly bad tempered way. They did the normal Black Knight routine and then they all went quite. Didn't even have the conviction in their own beliefs sufficient to make a stand.

It's a funny old game.

Finally! It's good to see that Tony Szamboti has at last published his detailed, science-based analysis of the collapse of the towers.
In your face, NIST!

The person who posted that is a Senior Member of the DIF, so I think it's unlikely to be a Poe. To be fair, one other member has taken issue with it, but the rest have seemingly accepted this as perfectly plausible.

Any word on an official Iranian investigation?

I know that the intrepid en-ves-tah-gay-tahs at AE911T have produced their Deep Analysis by Mining YOUtube (DAMYOU), but what are the Iranians doing?

D'oh! I see that the Iranian report is to be completed in about a month.

Those fancy pants AE911Ters already gots a report via the DAMYOU method. (soon to be adopted by forensic engineers world wide, I am sure)

I think you may be in the wrong thread, old chap, but anyway:

Isn't it interesting to see AE911Truth collaborating in an official government investigation? Bit of a turnaround from their original stance, methinks.

Maybe it is insanity. It is a legacy of stupidity by Balsamo and complete insanity by over 5,000 members... failed education?
https://www.facebook.com/groups/pilotsfortruth/

Facebook group unknowingly celebrates ignorance. Is there money spreading the lie of chemtrails by asking for funding a study? Balsamo's is paranoid and stupid, or trying to find some money for nothing from nuts on the internet.
