Debate between 9/11 Activist Jon Gold and Pat Curley the creator of the popular blog ScrewLooseChange.
The debate took place on Monday, November 24th, 2008 on the Franklin Pierce University closed circuit television show The Dynamic Duo and was moderated by the show's hosts Justin Martell and Eric Jackman.
The only editing that has been done to the three segments is all references to commercials have been removed (to make the conversation continuous), along with the opening and closing credits. The content of the debate has not been altered in any way. FP-TV's The Dynamic Duo is in no way affiliated with the GCN Radio Network show of the same name.

Excerpt from the updated BBC The Conspiracy Files, 9/11 - The Truth Behind The Third Tower program. Truthers don’t need a plausible theory or a coherent narrative of what happened on 9/11/01 because they’re “just asking questions” and, according to Dylan Avery, they don’t want to be “backed into a corner.”

Truthers rush to defend Holocaust denier Eric Williams at a truther confab in Chandler, Arizona, last year. Williams was the organizer of the conference until the merde hit the fan thanks to wiseacre journalist Steve Lemons of the Phoenix New Times and Pat. C. of the Screw Loose Change blog. Pat was in the room too but is not in the video.

Rosie O'Donnell and Willie Rodriguez recorded on 9/11/08, apparently in Rosie’s kitchen. Rosie looks awful and Willie’s main compliant is, “Why am I not more famous?” Plus some kvetching from Rosie about lack of media face time for Willie. (From Rosie’s Blog).
Bonus: Attention Whore Willie “I Am 9/11” Rodriguez exploits the death of Kenny Johannemann (another WTC janitor who committed suicide recently) and disses Richard Gage and Nico Haupt and threatens yet again to "leave" the 9/11 Truth Movement. Mp3 audio.

Seven years after 9/11, this powerful documentary brings a fresh angle on the terrorist attack. It reveals the extraordinary stories of the people trapped in the 22-storey Marriott World Trade Center Hotel, which nestled beneath the twin towers. Up until now, these stories of luck, sadness, bravery and heroism have rarely been reported; this impressive program more than compensates.
The Marriot was one of New York's busiest hotels. At 8.45am on 11 September 2001, the hotel was at full capacity, with more than 1,000 people staying in its 825 rooms. While guests were finishing their breakfasts, working out in the gym or relaxing in the luxury pool, the hotel's tranquil environment was shattered by the roar of jet engines and the horror of falling and burning debris.
Initially it wasn't clear to hotel guests exactly what had happened. Some, unable to see the full extent of the carnage way above the hotel, assumed it was minor incident and that the emergency services would soon have things under control. In fact one American lawyer was so busy, preparing for an impending trial, that he stayed in his room.
By the time the second plane hit the South Tower at 9.03am, many hotel guests had managed to escape, but as the fires continued to burn out of control and the towers came crashing down, some guests and staff became trapped. Miraculously, 14 survived.
This documentary meets some of the survivors. They include a British family on holiday; a hotel receptionist and part-time actress whose actions would later turn her into an American hero, and the lawyer who ignored the commotion and his fire-fighter rescuer.
The program builds well, using archive footage and interviews with the survivors to build a harrowing picture of what it was like in the Marriot during 9/11. And it also reveals the part that a previous terrorist attack had to play in this extraordinary story.

Read MoreThe National Institute of Standards and Technology released the findings and recommendations from its building and fire safety investigation of the collapse of World Trade Center Building 7 (WTC 7). WTC 7 was a 47-story building that fell nearly seven hours after the World Trade Center towers collapsed following the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001. The report presents the probable collapse sequence for the building and provides recommendations for improving building and fire safety in other buildings similar to WTC 7. Mr. Sivaraj Shyam-Sunder, the lead investigator for the federal building and fire safety investigation of the World Trade Center disaster, presented the report and responded to questions from the reporters in the audience.

Pacific Southwest Airlines Flight 1771 was a commercial flight that crashed in San Luis Obispo County, California, on December 7, 1987. All 43 people on board the aircraft died, including the man who caused the crash, a disgruntled former employee of USAir, the parent company of PSA.
The cash site was eerily similar to the Shanksville, Pennsylvania, crash site of United Airlines Flight 93 on 9/11/2001. Like Flight 93, PSA 1771 crashed at high speed after a steep dive leaving an impact crater in the ground and the plane disintegrated in small pieces scattering light weight debris (including vital clues to the cause of the crash) up to eight miles from the crash site.
First responder Detective Bill Wammock of the San Luis Obispo County Sheriff’s Office from the video: “Nothing that resembled an airliner... we went on for hours, before we heard the news reports of a missing airliner, believing that we were dealing with a small airplane full of newspapers that had crashed. We saw no pieces of the aircraft that were larger than, maybe, a human hand. It did not look like a passenger aircraft.”

This video raises a point I haven’t thought of before: Why would the evil 9/11 conspirators set off bombs in WTC7 in the morning for a demolition that happened in the late afternoon? (Not that conspiracy theories have to make any sense.) There’s also a good quote from FDNY Chief Nigro and an interesting sound clip from the Democracy Now broadcast of 9/11/01.

First up is Attack of the Nico Beast. As Count Floyd of SCTV's Monster Chiller Horror Theater would say, "It's scary stuff!"
Our second feature is I Didn't Insult That Lady (you can skip to the punch line beginning at the 7:57 mark if you're so inclined).
The videos are presented in reverse chronological order. The “mustache incident” in the first video took place at Ground Zero in May of 2008 and the legal document being brandished is a restraining order taken out after NICO’s “insult” to Luke’s lady in the second video, the events of which happened in January 2008.

Update of my "Help, Help, I'm Being Represed" video.
The truther in the video is from Beit Shalom Ministries which is a Jewish Messianic sect (i.e., Jews for Jesus). They have apparently fallen on hard times as the website with their original videos is gone and it's hard to find much information about them on the web.
I did find a podcast from Visibility 9-11 dated July 21, 2007, that has the unedited audio of one of the videotaped police encounters (beginning about 16:50 in). It's obvious that the officer was mostly concerned with the truther's safety. The truther was walking on the roadway of a two-lane rural highway.
I thought it would be interesting to compare what really happened with the Alex Jones "truther edit'"of the encounter.

Bernard Brown was a Pentagon employee. His 11 year-old son died on board Flight 77 (the one that hit the Pentagon). The father happened to not be at work that day, or else you could have had the horrific situation where the son would have been a hostage on the plane that, upon crashing, killed his own father.
Remember this is a real, actual person, who actually lost his son.
Now listen to Avery insinuate that Bernard Brown was in on the conspiracy and intentionally took a day off to "go play golf" while his own son was being burned alive in a plane crash he helped plan.

April 24, 2008 -- A man heckling First Lady Laura Bush and daughter Jenna outside the 92nd Street Y was arrested after he punched a wheelchair-bound girl whose parents had told him to shut up, authorities said yesterday. German Talis, 22, was shouting obscenities at the Bushes, who were leaving the building Tuesday, when he crossed paths with Wendy and John Lovetro and their daughter Maureen, 18, who has cerebral palsy.

Apparently Nico was trying to place a Hitler mustache (black piece of tape) on Sabrina, although he never really comes closer than about six inches to her face. Luke goes ballistic. Oddly, the cops watched this video (taped by Paula Gloria) of the incident and charged Sabrina and Nico, but not Luke. Update: Slow-mo replay clearly shows it was Sabrina and Luke Rudkowski who attacked Nico, not the other way around.

Screw Loose Change: "Dylan Avery posted this video of him, Steven Jones, and Richard Gage at Troofstock in San Diego, bizarrely thinking it would make him look good. It starts out with Jones going on with his thermite fetish, which he describes differently every time he mentions it. It gets most interesting about halfway through [at 14:00 mark] when the audience (what little there are, the place is mostly empty) starts turning on them. One guy starts screaming the middle of the aisle, 'Stop! Please, you are killing the left!' Before getting on his knees begging, and finally leaving. A couple of other audience members ask how such a complicated plot could be brought off, to which they get little answer other than 'Hey, we don't have the details, we are investigating'. It is worth watching just for that."

He suggests that Zelikow sought to minimize the Bush administration’s responsibility for failing to prevent the September 11th attacks.

Inside the Twin Towers offers a minute-by-minute explanation of the horror, confusion and the selfless actions on that fateful day. This two-hour docudrama combines gripping recreation with the vivid testimonies of survivors, victims' families, emergency workers and city officials to create an intimate first-hand account of what it was really like inside.
Extraordinary stories include Stanley Priamnath and Brian Park, two men who had never met until that day but whose friendship, faith and steely determination would see them both survive; Jan Demczur, the window cleaner who managed to save the lives of his fellow elevator passengers by unimaginable methods; and the firefighters who bravely entered the Towers - many of whom never returned.

Aired on the first anniversary of 9/11. The air traffic controllers in charge of the skies over America on the morning of 9/11 witnessed the nightmare. What these professionals witnessed, even now, is hard to fathom and what they did was extraordinary, unprecedented and a first in aviation history - within four hours from when controllers lost contact with the first airliner they safely cleared the U.S. skies of over 3,000 planes.

The Flight That Fought Back is a docudrama produced by the Discovery Channel about United Airlines Flight 93. The program debuted in the United States on September 11, 2005, marking the fourth anniversary of the event on which it is based. Eight part You Tube playlist. Narrated by Kiefer Sutherland.
On the morning of September 11, 2001, brothers Jules and Gedeon Naudet were working on a documentary about a rookie New York City firefighter. Hearing a roar in the sky, Jules turned his camera upward--just in time to film the only existing image of the first plane crashing into the World Trade Center. In a fateful instant, Jules and Gedeon became eyewitnesses to the most shocking and defining incident of our time. With cameras rolling, the Naudets followed NYC firefighters into the heart of what would be known as Ground Zero. What emerged is an unforgettably powerful visual document and a stirring tribute to real-life heroes who, in their city's darkest hour, rose to extraordinary acts of courage and compassion.

This video is about how obviously wrong the 9/11 conspiracy theorists are that WTC buildings 1, 2, and 7 were destroyed by explosive demolition, about how they resort to lying to try to cling to their fantasies, and about how they posit the use of exotic sci-fi weapons while criticizing others who do the same.
Includes discussion of claims by conspiracists Steven Jones and members of his Scholars for 9/11 Truth and Justice, Richard Gage and members of his Architects and Engineers for 9/11 Truth, David Ray Griffin, Dylan Avery and Loose Change, Jim Hoffman, "9/11 Mysteries," Jim Fetzer, Kevin Ryan, and others.
Issues discussed include controlled demolition, blast effects, cutter charges, potential energy of towers, audio fakery and deception, severity of fires, the expected collapse of WTC 7, "pyroclastic flows," and the dust clouds produced by the collapses.
Comments are presented by expert structural engineers and WTC investigators Gene Corley, Matthys Levy, Leslie Robertson, Irwin Cantor, and by FDNY Chief Daniel Nigro.

Arthur Scheuerman, retired Battalion Chief from the New York City Fire Department and author of 'Fire in the Skyscraper', talks about the collapse of World Trade Center 7 on September 11, 2001. Arthur was there, and saw the terrible damage the building had sustained from falling debris, the huge prolonged fires, and made the professional decision that the building was probably going to collapse. The Fire Department decided to "pull" all personnel from the building and from the probable collapse zone, hundreds of feet in every direction, including evacuating other buildings of both firefighters and civilians. Mark Roberts, 9/11 researcher, also appears. Hosted by Ronald Wieck. Taped for broadcast on March 4, 2008.

The tragedy of the attacks of 9/11 is ours to share; it is ours to remember; it is ours to understand.
Yet, our memory and understanding were clouded almost from the first horrible moment Flight 11 struck the north tower. No-one could believe such a brazen and simple attack could be so tragically effective. Disbelief quickly gave way to conspiracy theories and suspicions. These ideas from the fringe found a fertile breeding ground on the internet and today many of them, through the power of almost infinite repetition, have nearly gained the status of truth.
THE 9/11 CONSPIRACIES: FACT OR FICTION exhaustively examines some of the most persistent of these theories: that the World Trade Center was brought down by a controlled demolition; that a missile, not a commercial airliner, hit the Pentagon; and that members of the U.S. government orchestrated the attacks in hopes of creating a war in the Middle East. Each conspiracy argument is countered by a variety of experts in the fields of engineering, intelligence and the military. The program also delves into the anatomy of such conspiracies and how they grow on the Internet.

Sorry about the poor audio and video quality. The sound is bad because of heavy traffic at the location. The video looked okay on my PC but the low contrast of the video image because of an overcast sky seems to have caused problems when the video was uploaded and compressed.
The event organizer's account of the meet up:
"We had a problem with the location to initially get together--my faulty (DT). But then once together Josh gave out WeAreChange brochures, Deception Dollars, Sarah's DVD compilation and laminated Truth Cards while Sarah and David flashed Truth signage to all the cars along Bay St. We had one impromptu joinee with a digicam although mainly he just wanted to ask us questions. But he keep the conversation lively. One young waitress from Tony Roma's ran across the st. and thanked us, then asked for info to join the group. Young people--very interested. Older people--totally couldn't believe we would question our "country." Funniest people were on the tour buses lost in some historical fantasy then getting sort of wide-eyed at our signs and Sarah's piercings and tattoos. Love it!"
I was the 'impromptu joinee.'

On Saturday Aug 25th,... I headed down to Ground Zero for a chat with the truthers. I spent a good hour or so with these folks; some were polite, some were complete punks, and it was difficult at times to not get annoyed at hearing the same claims for the 500th time...
BBC interviewer from ‘The Conspiracy Files’ show explains with some exasperation to Loose Change wunderkind Dylan Avery the meaning of a simile. Dylan seems perplexed even after the explanation. The expression on Dylan’s face is priceless. He obviously has no idea what the BBC guy is talking about.
The guy in the video is Matthew Naus. According to the YouTube description of the video, he was angered by the fact that he sent DVDs and pamphlets to 80 senators and received NO RESPONSE. He went to Washington over a year ago and distributed DVDs and pamphlets to eighty senate offices and received NOT ONE AKNOWLEDGEMENT! He’s selling the truth and NO ONE IS BUYING!
It’s easy to make fun of these people but take a look at this webpage. There is something ineffably sad about the whole enterprise. Look at the pictures of the demonstrations. No more than 12 or 15 people show up (probably the same people every time). Donations are solicited to buy DVDs, literature, stamps and stationary to get out the TRUTH and no one is listening. Most of the stuff given out probably ends up in the trash of the recipients.
The young people in this movement will probably grow up eventually, get jobs, mates, careers, a life. But these guys are middle-aged and older and have totally bought into a delusional belief system. Some will drift away from this ‘activism,’ others will probably go to their deaths clutching their ‘truths.’
The only humane response possible is pity, yes, but also great, great sadness at the waste of human lives and the time, energy, money and potential being squandered on a delusion.
