EXCLUSIVE LIVE–Kay vs. Barrett: The knock-down, drag out heavyweight 9/11 truth battle of the century?

Tonight, I will be interviewing Jonathan Kay, who savages me in his book Among the Truthers.

Gordon Duff thinks Jonathan Kay is a “lightweight.” *

But as anti-9/11-truth polemicists go, Kay is one of the contenders for the heavyweight title.

So far as I know, there are only four books, and one peer-reviewed mainstream article, that attack or attempt to refute the 9/11 truth movement. (Compare that to the dozens of excellent pro-9/11-truth books, three of them peer reviewed and put out by major university presses, and the many more dozens of first-rate pro-9/11-truth articles, dozens of which are peer-reviewed and/or in mainstream journals or major university press books.**)

The four anti-truth books are:

(1) Popular Mechanics’ Debunking the 9/11 Myths (the culmination of a project launched by Zionist-extremist Homeland Security Secretary Chertoff’s cousin).

(2) Matt Taibbi’s The Great Derangement.

(3) Pro-Israeli propagandist David Aaronovitch’s Voodoo Histories.

(4) Jonathan Kay’s brand new Among the Truthers: A Journey into the Growing Conspiracist Underground of 9/11 Truthers, Birthers, Armageddonites, Vaccine Hysterics, Hollywood Know-Nothings, and Internet Addicts.

Taibbi may be a better writer, but I think Kay’s ponderous title alone makes him a presumptive shoo-in for the heavyweight crown.

Kay’s book is a rambling ad-hominem attack against the 9/11 truth movement in general, and selected 9/11 truth luminaries in particular. I have the pleasure of reporting that I am tied with Ken Jenkins, only slightly behind Mike Ruppert, and just barely ahead of David Ray Griffin and Richard Gage, as the most-discussed 9/11 truth leader in Kay’s book.*** I think I am safe in calling myself the most intensively vilified (indeed the most egregiously libeled) of the book’s cast of characters.

I am tempted to say that Kay deserves consideration for the Larry Silverstein Chutzpah Award — for telling so many stinking lies about me, and then having the unmitigated audacity to come on my radio show ; – ) Seriously, I think it argues well for Kay’s courage and sincerity that he is willing to have a public conversation with me. Were he to refuse to do so, I would be inclined to view Among the Truthers as one gigantic Straussian ignoble lie. (Yes, I think that sincere Straussians, if that isn’t an oxymoron, could very well struggle to keep the lid on 9/11 for the “greater good” of Israel and/or the US empire…but I will extend to Kay the courtesy of assuming that he is sincere in his apparent inability to rationally weigh the facts of 9/11 and draw the obvious conclusions.)

Why I am extending this courtesy to Kay I’m not sure. He certainly did not extend the same sort of courtesy to me. On the contrary, he seems to have assumed my bad intentions; and he makes so many errors of fact and judgment in his discussion of me — errors that could easily have been corrected by a few minutes of research — that I almost wonder if he isn’t part of a benevolent conspiracy to discredit his own book, and give the 9/11 truth movement a shot in the arm, by setting himself up for the mother of all libel suits.

In any case, he’s a brave man to wade into the ring with me.

So, get a ringside seat! Tune in to NoLiesRadio.org this Thursday at 10 pm Central (8 pm Pacific, 11 pm Eastern) and get ready for some rock ’em sock ’em 9/11 truth action.


* Gordon said that near the end of last night’s radio show.

** Books: Paul Zarempka (ed.), The Hidden History of 9/11 (published by Elsevier, Europe’s leading scholarly publisher); Anthony Hall’s Earth Into Property (published by Mcgill University Press, a leading Canadian academic house); and Peter Dale Scott’s The Road to 9/11 (published by one of the top US academic publishers, University of California Press). Articles: Many excellent scholarly articles from a pro-9/11 truth perspective can be found in Zarembka’s book, the Feb. 2010 issue of American Behavioral Scientist, and the Journal of 9/11 Studies. Several pro-9/11-truth scientific articles have been published in mainstream scientific journals, including Harrit and co-authors’ nanothermite paper, and Jones and co-authors’ Fourteen Points of Agreement. And no survey of the literature would be complete without mentioning the eight magisterial books and countless articles of the unofficial Dean of 9/11 Studies, David Ray Griffin. Taken together, this amounts to a formidable scholarly literature debunking the official account of 9/11. There exists nothing remotely as impressive — in fact, there is essentially nothing serious whatsoever — arguing against the pro-9/11-truth case and defending the official version.

* * * According to the index, Kay devotes fourteen pages to Ruppert, twelve pages to me, twelve to Ken Jenkins, eleven to Richard Gage, ten to David Ray Griffin.

9/11: Explosive Evidence -- Experts Speak Out
by Architects & Engineers for 911 Truth

The 43 technical experts interviewed in Experts Speak Out lay out the case for controlled demolition from their individual areas of expertise in hi-rise architecture, structural engineering, metallurgy, chemistry, physics, and controlled demolition. The seeming implausibility of the implications of the three World Trade Center skyscrapers being demolished with explosives is also handled quite skillfully in the film, as eight experts in psychology discuss the difficulties many people have in confronting the myth-shattering reality. This is a newly released DVD.

Etón FR160B Microlink Self-Powered (Hand Crank Power) AM/FM/NOAA Weather Radio with Flashlight, Solar Power and Cell Phone Charger (Black)
by Eton

AM (520-1710 KHz) & FM (87-108MHz) NOAA weatherband USB cell phone charger (USB cable not included) 3.5 mm headphone Accessories: owner"s manual, warranty card

Reviews: Excellent Item for Travel, Backpacking, Camping, Etc.

This radio is a great little investment. It does exactly everything it states it should. On a 60 second crank I got hours of play. I ran the radio completely dead by leaving the light on and the radio playing at half column. I let the radio play like this with the light on for at least an hour before it went dead. I then put it out in the sun and let it charge with the solar charger for about four hours and then turned the radio on and let it play for only about an hour and then just didn't want to complete the experiment. I am very pleased with this radio. 60 seconds of cranking for hours of play is very reasonable. Letting it charge out in the sun and getting hours of play is very reasonable. I have other brands like this in the past that you would crank for 5 to 10 and get maybe 10 minutes of play.

The USB charge does work, but know that it will not charge an iPhone 3Gs. This is more a problem/restriction of the iPhone 3Gs (a widely discussed complaint across the Internet for many-many generic charging devices) and is not because of the radio. Charging my old Samsung phone was not a problem.

Capitalism: A Love StoryCapitalism: A Love Story. On the 20-year anniversary of his groundbreaking masterpiece "Roger & Me," Michael Moore's "Capitalism: A Love Story" comes home to the issue he's been examining throughout his career: the disastrous impact of corporate dominance on the everyday lives of Americans. But this time the culprit is much bigger than General Motors, and the crime scene is far wider than Flint, Michigan.
