G. William Domhoff, a Research Professor at the University of California, Santa Cruz first coined the non-conspiracy acronym TPTB. He received his Ph.D. at the University of Miami. He has been teaching at the University of California, Santa Cruz, since 1965. Four of his books are among the top 50 best sellers in sociology for the years 1950 to 1995: Who Rules America? (1967); The Higher Circles (1970); Who Rules America Now? (1983); and the non-”conspiracy” critique and theory of the U.S. power structure, The Powers That Be (TPTB) in 1979.
 Comment by Luis Prada: The Twin Towers of the World Trade Center were micro cities with powerful electric systems. They certainly represented the electric grid that will be demised with the free-energy technology of the vacuum, the inexhaustible source of electromagnetic energy of the fourth dimension studied by Nikola Tesla, Tom Bearden, Bruce DePalma, Viktor Schauberger, Mendel Sachs, John Hutchinson, Thomas Townsend Brown, and others, the zero-point energy.

 The Single Stupidest Insurance Fraud In History
Silverstein’s best-case scenario was an insurance payout of $6.8 billion for the Twin Towers. Putting aside that the insurance companies refused to pay and settled for $4.55 billion and that he had a mortgage on the twin towers, the $10-12 billion to rebuild the Towers would leave him with at least $4 billion deficit. And contrary to what you heard, the Twin Towers were quite profitable and had fairly high occupancy rates.
To recap, Larry Silverstein wanted the moneymaking towers destroyed so he could collect a net loss from insurance funds, not to mention the loss of rental income during the 10+ years it will take to re-build the Freedom Tower.
 New World Order and the Cointelpro of Michel Chossudovsky Globalresearch.ca (16,264, 5,933, 6,165) [F1]
And if you want to know about the New World Order, there is Michel Chossudovsky’s The Centre for Research on Globalisation (CRG) website, where you can find a variety of progressive writers, scholars and activists committed to curbing the tide of “globalisation” and “disarming” the US military agenda.
 According to most paranoid theorists, the smoking gun of 9/11 can be found on the Project for a New America (PNAC) website:
A plan written in 2000, entitled “Rebuilding America’s Defenses: Strategies, Forces and Resources for a New Century,” The treatise clearly showed that members of the Bush administration had planned to take military control of the Gulf region one way or another, long before the attacks of 9/11.
The PNAC website openly calls for a “transformation” of the U.S. military into an imperialistic force of global domination but goes on to note there was a problem: The American people would have to go along with the idea and so “The process of transformation,” the plan said, “is likely to be a long one, absent some catastrophic and catalyzing event—like a new Pearl Harbor.”
The Truthers have adopted that phrase as their mantra: like a new Pearl Harbor…like a new Pearl Harbor….like 9/11.
To them, there is no question that 9/11 constituted a catastrophic and catalyzing event. Their leading spokesman David Ray Griffin with connections to the New World Order wrote a best selling book, The New Pearl Harbor.
It never occurred to them that the U.S. Government would NEVER publish their plans for worldwide military hegemony on the PNAC website.
What are these people smoking?
George W. Bush played the part of being stupid really well for eight years but no one in their right mind would actually believe Bush, Cheney, Rumsfeld, Wolfowitz and Perle would announce their secret plans for 9/11 on a website with an Alexa traffic rank of 942,906 and 1631 sites linking in.
 Infowars.com (2, 636. 7,575. 568), web conspiracy-tainted site of Alex Jones.
Alex Jones is the “Minister of Truth” over a flock of “Truthers,” whose church is the “9/11 Truth Movement.”
The faithful followers are not concerned that Pastor Alex is now being given significant exposure and airtime by the mainstream media – specifically by Disinformation-Central Fox News.
The media attention he is getting is quite bewildering until one digs deeper and understands Alex Jones is part of a Cointelpro operation.
“The Truth Movement has the dual purpose of vectoring genuine truth seekers to dead ends, where anger, hype and paranoia endlessly stress the seeker and those around him or her, and to facilitate the mainstream media’s task of branding those who ask questions of authority and the true nature of reality as insane.”
Why does Jones appear to be closely aligned with that which he seeks to subvert and destroy?
The fact that Jones exposes government schemes – and extraordinarily loudly at that – becomes evidence that he may very well be Cointelpro.
“What people fail to understand however, is that serious Cointelpro operations are never obvious. They are by definition, very closely aligned with that which they seek to subvert and destroy because they would not get very far at infiltration and subversion if they were not.”
The strategy of supporting sides that at first glance appear to be in direct opposition is similar to the way things are staged by the “Secret Team”.

 But wait, Bush and Cheney were not behind 9/11 after all: it was a Zionist Israeli plot.
Thanks to the unmitigated stupidity of the five Israelis caught on tape dancing on 9/11 and Chris Bollyn’s recent discovery of “Israel’s Super-Termite” (nanothermite), we now know the September 11 attacks were to change the military equation in the Middle East.
And Chris Bollyn has the answer as to “how the Israeli government could possibly think they would get away with such an audacious and heinous crime of false-flag terrorism:”
“What they didn’t expect is that a few Americans would dig into the evidence and uncover every stone to find the real culprits. They certainly didn’t expect that a careful and independent scientific analysis of the dust would reveal that a nano-composite form of super-thermite was used to pulverize the World Trade Center.” “What they didn’t expect is that a few Americans would dig…” I can hardly stop laughing! But when I did stop laughing, I contacted Andrew Johnson at Check The Evidence and asked him the following questions:
Q) What is thermite anyway? Answer: Aluminum Powder and Iron Oxide (rust).
Fact: The exterior of WTC towers contained aluminum and there were some rusty beams inside the buildings. Therefore, we can dismiss any smoking gun theory of super-thermite because you would expect to find aluminum powder and iron oxide in the remains of the World Trade Center.
Q) What does thermite do to metal? Answer: It melts through it. Q) What happened to the towers? Answer: They turned largely to dust. Thermite cannot have been responsible for turning towers to dust. Let’s see this nanothermite in action please!
 Controlled Demolition Theory Debunked
The “Melted” Steel Claim
FACT: Jet fuel burns at 800° to 1500°F, that is not hot enough to melt steel (2750°F). However, experts agree that for the towers to collapse, their steel frames didn’t need to melt, they just had to lose some of their structural strength—and that required exposure to much less heat.
The Puffs Of Dust Claim
FACT: Once each tower began to collapse, the weight of all the floors above the collapsed zone bore down with pulverizing force on the highest intact floor.
Like all office buildings, the WTC towers contained a huge volume of air. As they pancaked, all that air—along with the concrete and other debris pulverized by the force of the collapse—was ejected with enormous energy.
Demolition expert Van Romero regrets that his comments to the Albuquerque Journal became fodder for conspiracy theorists. “I was misquoted in saying that I thought it was explosives that brought down the building,” he tells PM. “I only said that that’s what it looked like.”
Romero demanded a retraction from the Journal. It was printed on Sept. 22, 2001. “I felt like my scientific reputation was on the line.” But emperors-clothes.com saw something else: “The paymaster of Romero’s research institute is the Pentagon. “Conspiracy theorists came out saying that the government got to me. That is the farthest thing from the truth. This has been an albatross around my neck for three years.”
The Seismic Spikes Claim
Seismographs at Columbia University’s Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory in Palisades, N.Y., 21 miles north of the WTC, recorded the events of 9/11. “The strongest jolts were all registered at the beginning of the collapses, well before falling debris struck the earth,” reports the web site WhatReallyHappened.com.
A columnist on Prisonplanet.com, a website run by radio talk show host Alex Jones and known disinformation agent, claims the seismic spikes (boxed area on Graph 1) are “indisputable proof that bombs brought down” the towers. The website reports that two seismologists at the observatory, Won-Young Kim and Arthur Lerner-Lam, support its findings when they said “each sharp spike of short duration consistent with a demolition-style implosion.”
FACT: “There is no scientific basis for the conclusion that explosions brought down the towers,” Lerner-Lam tells Popular Mechanics. “That representation of our work is categorically incorrect and not in context.”
The report issued by Lamont-Doherty includes various graphs showing the seismic readings produced by the planes crashing into the two towers as well as the later collapse of both buildings.
WhatReallyHappened.com chooses to display only one graph (Graph 1), which shows the readings over a 30-minute time span.
On that graph, the 8 and 10-second collapses appear—misleadingly—as a pair of sudden spikes. Lamont-Doherty’s 40-second plot of the same data (Graph 2) gives a much more detailed picture: the seismic waves—blue for the South Tower, red for the North Tower—start small and then escalate as the buildings rumble to the ground.

 Wildlife to be Avoided or “How to Discredit Judy Wood and Morgan Reynolds” [From 911truth.org]
There are a good number of irrational and unsupportable 9/11 theories and theorists “out there” that have been used to great effect to discredit 9/11 truth advocates as whole (Check out Rule 4 in “The Twenty-five Rules of Disinformation” to grasp the tactic and then watch it in action in Popular Mechanics’ recent 9/11 smear). We are therefore also concerned about these spurious plot lines and how they are exploited, and we criticize many on our site. Every large and growing movement picks up a few noisy dunces or provocateurs in the margins, but they do not in any way invalidate the well researched evidence at its core. We only pray that those drawn to the 9/11 issue by sensationalist claims will stay long enough to learn the less theatrical but equally damning truth.
Twenty-Five Rules of Disinformation
4. Use a straw man. Find or create a seeming element of your opponent’s argument which you can easily knock down to make yourself look good and the opponent to look bad. Either make up an issue you may safely imply exists based on your interpretation of the opponent/opponent arguments/situation, or select the weakest aspect of the weakest charges. Amplify their significance and destroy them in a way which appears to debunk all the charges, real and fabricated alike, while actually avoiding discussion of the real issues.

 At the beginning of the Twentieth Century the theologian Teilhard de Chardin with his vision of the future foresaw this grid and called it the technosphere; other visionary, José Argüelles, has also taken this name developing many theories over its existence and predicting its demise at the fall of the Twin Towers (9/11/02) that according to him represented the symbol of this grid.
[Comment by Luis Prada: The Twin Towers of the World Trade Center were micro cities with powerful electric systems. They certainly represented the electric grid that will be demised with the free-energy technology of the vacuum, the inexhaustible source of electromagnetic energy of the fourth dimension studied by Nikola Tesla, Tom Bearden, Bruce DePalma, Viktor Schauberger, Mendel Sachs, John Hutchinson, Thomas Townsend Brown, and others, the zero-point energy.
The Electromagnetic Grid
From: "The Light Shall Set You Free" -Norma J. Malanovich
In Atlantis, an etheric energy matrix existed beneath the earth's surface, providing a lattice network for such activities as telepathic communication and healing. This matrix was known as a grid, which is defined as a network of uniformly spaced horizontal and vertical bars or lines, especially one for locating points when placed over a map, a chart, building plan, etc. This grid was a system of electromagnetic frequencies created through worldwide linkages, made by human thought waves and energy transmitted by the Earth and through crystals. The system followed a carefully designed plan that was obviously intelligently thought out and detailed. It embodied the study and form of Geomancy, which means the divination of lines drawn at random.
This electromagnetic grid existed for centuries and supported the higher-dimensional existence of the Atlanteans. It enabled life to exist in a higher form on the planet. It was an empowering system situated several feet beneath the Earth's surface. The electromagnetic grid was built by the Thrice-Greatest Geomancer and Master of Earth known as Hermes Trismegistus and the High Priests and Priestesses of Atlantis who came to Earth to build civilization for this part of the galaxy.
Earth Harmonics is the practice of bringing the natural environment into balance through the use of Earth Energetic supportive devices, such as the Earth Harmonizer. This device taps into the Earth’s latent reservoirs of healing energies by enriching the Earth’s Energetic Grid system with a pattern and vibration that resonates in harmony with greater Universal healing energies.
The Earth, just like humans, has an energetic body with a merdian system and potent points, just like we would think of in Acupuncture. By tapping and resonating these potent points harmonically, we can “call” in supportive, nourishing energies from deep within the earth.
ELECTRIC GRID OR TECHNOSPHERE
It is formed by lines created by our civilization with the use of electricity, of high voltage, microwaves, television and radio waves. The name of Hartman was also given to this grid, after the last name of the German physicians that took the task of measuring it, to know its influence over their patients with illnesses such as cancer. Physically it is an electric lattice formed by lines of 8.25 inches (21 cm.) wide approximately, that create rectangles from 2 to 2.5 meters (6.56 ft. to 8.2 ft.), this one prolongs vertically arriving in some places to great heights where it feeds off of the relaying antennas of microwaves and the high voltage towers. This grid is like a reservoir where all the human-created electric energies are poured into and it has been determined that its points of intersection may be damaging to health if we stay over them for long periods of time.
It is an artificial electric grid through which an enormous amount of energy flows. It is of masculine character.
The Demolition Hypothesis
Hypothesis according to The American Heritage Dictionary:
1. A tentative explanation for an observation, phenomenon, or scientific problem that can be tested by further investigation. 2. Something taken to be true for the purpose of argument or investigation; an assumption. 3. The antecedent of a conditional statement.
“The collapse of both World Trade Center towers—and the smaller WTC 7 a few hours later—initially surprised even some experts. But subsequent studies have shown that the WTC's structural integrity was destroyed by intense fire as well as the severe damage inflicted by the planes. That explanation hasn't swayed conspiracy theorists, who contend that all three buildings were wired with explosives in advance and razed in a series of controlled demolitions.” Popular Mechanics
By far and without a doubt the most compelling reason to reject the tentative explanation for the collapse of the twin towers is because everyone, and I mean everyone, but a tiny majority of people in the world is convinced the twin towers collapsed from controlled demolition.
Architects and Engineers for 911 Truth accept the conspiracy theory of controlled demolition because of two men: Steven Jones and David Ray Griffin.
Steven Jones, a professor in physics with no expertise whatsoever in material science was asked to leave the university when he embarrassed the physics department at Brigham Young University by going public with his “best hypothesis” about the collapse of the twin towers. 
Jones’ research, never peer reviewed, does not prove the building collapsed from controlled demolition. A peer-review of Steven E. Jones’ 9/11 Research (The Trouble with Jones)
David Ray Griffin, retired professor at the Claremont School of Theology and spokesman for the 9/11 Truth Movement, has written numerous books questioning the 9/11 “Official Story” based on the research paper from Steven Jones.
His books, that some would call treason, are readily available at mainstream booksellers like Barnes and Noble.
He lectures frequently at universities and public places explaining in nauseating, repetitive detail that September 11 was not the result of 19 Arab terrorist and insists, without any proof other than Steven Jones’ inconclusive un-reviewed paper, that controlled demolition can explain the collapse of World Trade center towers.
Ponder this: If the twin towers were demolished by the Bush Administration to bring on the New World Order (which never happened), then the 19 Arab terrorists are innocent of murdering, in cold blood, 3,000 American citizens.
If that, dummies for 9/11Truth, isn’t giving aid and comfort to the enemy Al Qaeda terrorists, I will eat my Patriot Act Hat. 
Steven and David should be thanking Dubya for not torturing them in Guantanamo
