Are you all sitting comfortably?

Dictionarydotcom defines “eccentric” as “deviating from the recognized or customary character, practice, etc.” and it’s not necessarily pejorative to unclosed minds.  It really means finding lateral solutions to things or not automatically being a sheep and accepting “given” facts before they can be justified.

When we find these relate to freedoms being restricted, it’s up to us to present them on a blog dedicated to freedom, which is hardly eccentric but more “centric”, in that it relates to our prime directive – posts about liberty.

Political censorship,  according to Wiki, “occurs when governments hold back information from their citizens. This is often done to exert control over the populace and prevent free expression that might foment rebellion.”  So if someone tries to restrict someone posting on certain topics then, despite commendable attempts to assure readers that that is not censorship [censorship is only what someone else, a bete noir, does] then it smells mightily like censorship to me.

Then again, I’m eccentric.

If you look at my last post on WTC7 and NIST’s lying, it’s not immediately apparent what it has to do with freedom [unless your mind is open] but you only need look at Angry Exile‘s post before it to see what followed 911.  He set it out in great detail and it has everything to do with freedom [although, having done it, he doesn’t accept the WTC7 premise].

This youtube below was sent to me by a blogger most of us know and it sums up, in a few minutes, why it’s necessary to bang on about 911 and freedom:

    I’m eccentric and proud of it. I’ve spent a lifetime being different from the crowd. So, no, it isn’t a pejorative description and I never see it as one. Also, you don’t have to accept the 9/11 theories to recognise the sheer damage done to liberty in the wake of both that and 7/7.

    I’d also add those attacks that never happened – the Forest Gate arrests of folk who weren’t actually guilty of anything and the ricin plot where there was no ricin and no plot. Politicians do not need actual attacks to grab an opportunity to indulge in illiberal behaviour.

      They use ‘pinsetters’ shills to set up patsies. ie The underwear ‘bomber.’

    According to some authorities, those with a slightly off centre view of the world often lead happier, healthier, and longer lives. Which is a bit of a pisser for those of us teed off with endless conspiracy theories about 9/11 and the Moon landings clogging so many forums, hoping that the proponents would just crawl off to some dark corner and stop bothering everyone.

    As a counter to conspiracy theorists, might I offer the following; anyone who understands how generally incompetent Governments are would know that faking demolitions and flights to the moon are unlikely, as someone, somewhere will always spill the beans. Usually by one of the guys who did the grunt work.

    The only people who make assertions to the contrary are those who simply don’t understand the logistics of ‘faking it’. For proof look at the huge credits list at the end of any movie; Stunt artists, Foley Artists, first and second camera units, special effects, CGI artists, gofers, clapperboard people, producers directors, executive directors, animal trainers, electricians, set builders; not to mention the actors, extras and people simply standing around with clipboards.

    Perhaps being truly eccentric means not minding that everyone on Earth doesn’t share your world view. In fact I think that’s the whole point. Then again, that’s the argument most likely to be advanced by a ‘Type 3’ eccentric. 😀

      It certainly is a problem for those people because facts are stubborn things, aren’t they? As WTC7 can’t be debunked [and I’ve constantly called for the counter-science], all that’s left is to hope pesky pundits who draw attention to it will just crawl away.

      This is exactly what the left hopes we’ll do with all the fiskings we do. Trouble is, we don’t go away because we can quote facts, instead of relying on abuse.

      It’s so intriguing why some people hang on so vehemently to an exploded explanation. Truly fascinating.

      Interesting you should quite rightly point to how many people are required to fake a movie.
      There is a video on youtube of some firemen inspecting hydrants in the perfect place to capture the flight of the first plane on its way to oblivion.
      Watching it a couple of times it looks for all the world like the guys in white are acting although the firemen seem to be more at ease with the camera.
      Nothing seen in a video can be taken as reality anything can be and is faked.

      Why do we simply accept that governments are full of incompetent people and therefore incompetence can explain everything bad that happens?
      I would argue that there is a majority or at worst a significant minority of competent people working within governments, admittedly they are not often found speaking in public but I really don’t buy this incompetence line we are being fed.
      I do buy that there are live and kicking psychopaths who will happily hurt other people either physically, in their pockets, or mentally and sleep like babies after they have implemented such actions, working in governments. Tbliar and the snot gobbler to name two.

    Also intensive fires raged in buildings 3,4,5,and6. Some were partially destroyed. Don’t here much mention of these buildings or any inquiry into how cars were incinerated a mile from the Trade Centre.

      So buildings 3, 4, 5, 6 and 7, all burning with ‘raging fires’ and yet only one collapsed. The other four were all ‘partially damaged’. Damn that must have been some powerful paper stored in number 7 😀

      To see just how easily people who are part of ‘the government’ lie to cover incompetence, stupidity, failure or ensure a certain course of action goes through read this blog from the beginning.

    Yep. There are just too many contradictions. You mentioned some here. They’re not even “if” or “maybe” contradictions. I’m not claiming all sorts of things happening – just contradictions and anomalies which simply shouldn’t have been in there, given the official scenario.

    I have to say I’ve been hugely surprised that people who are normally very suspicious of official lines can now turn around and say “as a counter to conspiracy theorists” when that has zero to do with what’s being discussed here.

    There’s something really wrong with why some people have to constantly bring everything back to those same tired old words. I could equally say “which is a bit of a pisser for those of us teed off with endless insistence that something must always be a conspiracy theory”. It would be lovely if they stopped chanting the mantra and examined the bloody evidence for once.

    The vid was good, not because I accepted everything, because I haven’t examined everything but it does show the utter ludicrousness of pretending all was well with 911 and that is why people keep going on, as they still do over David Kelly.


    The 2004 disclosure that Gorelick’s service as a 9/11 Commissioner was the archetypical conflict-of-interest should have triggered a cacophony of complaints and demands for a new investigation. Instead, the mainstream media turned deaf and dumb and the controversy faded into the background.
