Truth Troubadour Vic Sadot interview by Bev Collins on 911Talks Show

Truth Troubadour Vic Sadot was interviewed by Bev Collins on the “911 Talks” Radio Show on Oct 2, 2014 from 5 - 6 pm. Bev Collins asked how certain songs came to be written that were eventually released on 9/11/11 as "9/11 Truth & Justice Songs". 

 Truth Troubadour Vic Sadot Interview with Bev Collins

Songs Featured with full airplay were: The Ballad of WilliamRodriguez at Truth Troubadour, Cheney’s in the Bunker, Blowback or Bloody Treason at Truth Troubadour YouTube, and Trouble inthe Rubble at Truth Troubadour YouTube. Vic told about Thierry Meyssan of Voltaire Network - Réseau Voltaire blog that questioned the Pentagon attack and David Ray Griffin's first writings as what moved him from the "blowback" to the "treason" perspective on 9/11.

Biographically, Vic told of how he had been influenced by Phil Ochs and the singer-songwriters in Broadside: The National Topical Song Magazine started by Sis Cunningham and Gordon Friesen in the 60's Greenwich Village folk music scene, which was inspired by the Civil Rights and Anti-War struggles of the times. Vic had the honor of breaking the story of Phil Ochs FBI Files story on the cover of Broadside in 1982. Vic met and interviewed his hero, Phil Ochs, in May  of 1973 (Free mp3 download at the Phil Ochs memorabilia and tribute site called No More Songs - The Phil Ochs Tribute & Memorabilia Site.

Vic told about how he moved to Berkeley, CA in 2008 thinking that KPFA would be a good place to get his songs heard. But he discovered a wall of gate-keeping at the Pacifica station except for a couple of independent volunteer shows like Project Censored and Guns and Butter Radio Show - Host Bonnie Faulkner. Fortunately, Vic said, there is No Lies Radio in San Francisco Bay are too. Vic praised Teri Perticone for discovering so many artists that sing topical singers. No Lies Radio can be heard on the internet 24/7 at 


Vic explained how he went to the DC Emergency Truth Convergence in Washington, DC in 2005 at the invitation of Janice Matthews of

Vic said that his eyes were opened to many aspects of the event as a false flag operation with intended policy consequences. He named some who were there, such as Nafeez Ahmed, and Paul Thompson who wrote "The 9/11 Timeline" later to be known as the History Commons. At that conference Vic met David Schlesinger who had the idea that Vic, as a folk singer, should write a song about William Rodriguez, the janitor hero of the World Trade Center, who went from being celebrated to being persona non-grata for not being willing to compromise the truth. Dave arranged for Vic to interview Willie and the song came out of that process. 

William Rodriguez's 9/11 Commission testimony was omitted as was that of Secretary of Transportation Norman Mineta's brief account of his time in the Presidential war bunker with Vice President Dick Cheney. Mineta cited 9:20 am as the time he first heard a young man questioning Cheney about the orders on the morning of 9/11/01. Vic explained that David Ray Griffin found the testimony of Mineta in a subcommittee report. That testimony about a plane approaching Washington after the World Trade Center Towers had already been hit "jumped off the page" as a great subject for the song, the one that would become "Cheney's in the Bunker". 
 September 11: The New Pearl Harbor by Max Mazzucco

Vic credited Michael C. Ruppert's "Crossing the Rubicon" as the inspiration for his song "Blowback or Bloody Treason". And Vic explained that "Trouble in the Rubble" came from reading a newspaper article by Amy Westfelt of the Associated Press about how the rescue dogs weren't suffering as much as the humans were from working in the rescue and removal work of the toxic dust and the "white-hot debris". 

 TROUBLE IN THE RUBBLE at Truth Troubadour Channel

Vic made sure to give musicians credits and he named his brother Rob Sadot as electric guitarist, Dean A. Banks as the keyboard and bass player, and R. B. Hunter (Rbeast) as the drummer and studio owner-engineer at the Tune Room in Wilmington, Delaware. Zone Parker was the guitarist on The Ballad of William Rodriguez. Vic was able to plug the fact that he has made videos for all of these songs at Truth Troubadour YouTube Channel. 

The recent 2014 9/11 Truth Film Festival held in the elegant Grand Lake Theater in Oakland, CA was another topic discussed. It is organized by volunteers from the Northern California 9/11 Truth Alliance, a non-profit educational group with an active website at The entire event was live-streamed and has been preserved in the No Lies Radio archive with a donation pay per view system in place suggested at $15 but accepts anything even a penny. There are 13 segments that the viewers can pause, forward, rewind if they want to have focused conversations with friends and family. See
 The Bev Collins Show - 9/11 Let the Truth Be Told

Bev Collins asked Vic Sadot to talk about some of the movies at the 9/11 Film Festival at the Grand Lake Theater in Oakland, CA on 9/11/14. Vic praised Massimo Mazzucco's masterful new and comprehensive survey of what we know about 9/11 thirteen years after the tragic and pivotal events of that day. Titled "September 11: The New Pearl Harbor", it is a 5 hour tour de force. Both Bev and Vic recalled that David Ray Griffin calls Max Mazzucco's documentary of the best 9/11 films ever. It was shown in 3 segments with intermissions. Debuting film-maker David Hooper was there in person at the Grand Lake Theater. His film is about how his late-blooming 9/11 rude awakening nearly wrecked his marriage. In fact, that was why he made "An Anatomy of a Great Deception by David Hooper". He is quite humorous at times. But he is also dead serious about how important it is to wake other people like himself up. Vic also talked about how Robbie Martin's "American Anthrax by Robbie Martin" ties a lot of loose ends together and should be seen as part of the 9/11 crimes even though that wave of killing and fear happened a few weeks after. Robby Martin ties it into the passage of the Patriot Repression Act.

There was discussion of how difficult it is for singer-songwriters to get 9/11 Truth songs heard. Vic mentioned that he has a "Truth Troubadour Showcase" at his Truth Troubadour YouTube Channel and a parallel Facebook page with the same name to promote the singers in the showcase, a little over 30 truth troubadours who have made YouTube videos.

Vic quoted Pete Seeger at the end of the program. Pete said: “A singing movement is a winning movement. We're putting a world together before it blows itself apart. Over the years you'll find the magic made by the right song at the right place at the right time. Musicians can teach the politicians. It's fun to swap the lead. Musicians can teach the planners – economists, engineers, lawyers: plan for improvisation! Our greatest songs are yet unsung! So Rise up singing!

ANOTHER NINETEEN - One of the Greatest 9/11 Truth Books Yet!

Truth Troubadour Book Review 
"Another Nineteen: Investigating Legitimate 9/11 Suspects"
by Kevin Ryan

"Another Nineteen: Investigating Legitimate 9/11 Suspects" by Kevin Ryan is one of the greatest 9/11 Truth books yet! And there have been some great ones, such as "The 9/11 Commission Report: Omissions and Distortions" and "The New Pearl Harbor Revisited" by David Ray Griffin, "Crossing the Rubicon" by the late Michael C. Ruppert, "Towers of Deception" by Barrie Zwicker, and "The Road to 9/11: Wealth, Empire, and the Future of America" by Peter Dale Scott.

Official Kevin Ryan Book Site for “Another Nineteen: Investigating Legitimate 9/11 Suspects”

The esteemed Professor of Literature at UC-Berkeley, Dr. Peter Dale Scott, wrote this endorsement for the work, "Over the last decade, Kevin Ryan has been one of the most intelligent and useful analysts of what happened on 9/11, on topics ranging from the scientific analyses of how the WTC towers collapsed to the broader political background of the event. It is a most welcome opportunity to have the fruits of his researches collected in a book."

 Kevin Ryan's Blog – “Dig Within”

What makes "Another Nineteen: Investigating Legitimate 9/11 Suspects" unique and important is that it names people who were in a position to make sure that the outcome was the one that happened. Kevin Ryan names another 19 suspects, a list that includes people who could order a US military stand-down; people who could control the media story; people who could terrorize Congress with anthrax attacks; people who had the means to use remote control of airliners; people who had access to nano thermite and to the steel frames of the World Trade Center towers that 19 Muslims would never have had in order to cause 10 second disintegration style demolitions; people who could assure that nobody got court martialed, fired, demoted, or even reprimanded as a consequence of the monumental failures of the day but rather rewarded; people who could create a marketable myth and control the exploitation of the lie for repressive laws and resource wars of choice abroad; people who could control and assure a cover-up of the crimes. Some of those named will be familiar if not expected to be suspected, such as Vice President Dick Cheney, Secretary of Defence Donald Rumsfeld, and NYC Mayor Rudy Giuliani, CIA Director George Tenet, FBI Director Louis Freeh, and Generals Myers and Eberhard.

Others named may not be as well-known to the public, but they held key positions of power that relate to the crime. They all had the means, motive, and opportunity, and they all benefited considerably from these crimes. These would be Frank Carlucci of the Carlyle Group, Secretary of State Colin Powell, Deputy Sec of State Richard Armitage, National Security Director Condoleezza Rice and Deputy National Security Director Richard Clarke, Carl Truscott of the Secret Service, Deputy Secretary of Defense John Deutch and SAIC corporation, Paul Bremer, Brian Michael Jenkins, Wirt Walker of KuwAm, Barry McDaniel of Stratesec, as well as Paul Wolfowitz, Richard Perle, and other NeoCons from the Project for the New American Century calling for a "new Pearl Harbor".

Two good introductions to the book are the interviews done with Kevin Ryan by Abby Martin on "Breaking the Set" on RT and Bonnie Faulkner on "Guns & Butter" Pacifica Radio Network.

9/11:The 19 Suspects the Government Wants to Hide”  (10:40) | Think Tank 9-10-13 Abby Martin speaks with Kevin Ryan, co-editor of the Journal of 9/11 Studies and author of 'Another Nineteen: Investigating Legitimate 9/11 Suspects', a book that explores 19 alternative suspects that he alleges had the real means and motive to pull of the 9/11 attacks. 

The information in "Another Nineteen: Investigating Legitimate 9/11 Suspects" is detailed and documented in a scholarly manner with a common sense language in the tradition of Tom Paine. It makes a solid case for why these individuals should be investigated as "suspects". If these suspects are guilty of the crimes of 9/11, then a prosecution and conviction of them would completely change human history, bring hope and justice to the world, and end the phony "war on terror". The lies and myths of 9/11 have been used for destabilizing and attacking numerous weaker countries with valuable resources and strategic locations. 9/11 was used as the justification for illegal kidnappings and torture, the removal of fundamental rights like habeas corpus from the common law and the inalienable Bill of Rights in the US Constitution, and the placement of puppet regimes to privatize and militarize the earth under fewer further consolidated global corporations.

Thomas Kean, Philip Zelikow, and Lee Hamilton of the 9/11 Commission
appointed by President George W. Bush 

Of particular interest are the actual creators of the "War on Terror", people who wrote about it and pumped it up for years and then posed in media interviews as "experts" on the subject that they profited from in the aftermath of the tragedy. Florida Republican Senator Porter Goss, a former CIA operative, and Senator Bob Graham played key roles in the Congressional "investigation" that pre-dated the ill-fated President George Bush mandated 9/11 Commission headed by Thomas H. Kean and Lee H. Hamilton, but really run by Executive Director Philip D. Zelikow, an Assistant National Security Director to Condoleezza Rice, who should have been investigated instead of investigating and was opposed by 9/11 victim families, such as the Jersey Girls in the documentary titled "Press for Truth".
 9/11 Press for Truth - Social Justice in the Heart of Berkeley

Lorie Van Auken, member of the Family Steering Committee for the 9/11 Commission and widow of Kenneth Van Auken who was killed at the World Trade Center, said, "Kevin Ryan has written a book that reminds us that the attacks of September 11, 2001 and their details have never fully been investigated. Kevin has laid out the historic framework in a way that has never been done before."
And Bob McIlvaine, father of Bobby McIlvaine, who was killed at the World trade Center, said, "Finally a comprehensive and meticulously researched book that thoroughly details what occurred before and on 9/11. Without a doubt, Another Nineteen should be required reading for those who want the real story."

It may seem depressing to take a deeper look into the darker side of the US corporate oligarchy captured state apparatus of the Republic of the United States. However, it is liberating and enlightening for those who break on through the mind numbing matrix to an analysis of the crimes that makes sense of the event and the exploitation of it. 

Kevin Ryan is the co-editor of the Journal of 9/11 Studies and a whistleblower from Underwriters Laboratories. He has contributed to many books and scientific articles on the subject of 9/11, and has made presentations around the U.S. and Canada. He has appeared on National Public Radio, Air America Radio, Pacifica Radio, C-SPAN Book TV, Free Speech TV, and Colorado Public Television.

Truth Troubadour Vic Sadot Aims Broadside Ballad at Noam Chomsky

Truth Troubadour Vic Sadot Aims Broadside Ballad at Noam Chomsky: BLOWBACK OR BLOODY TREASON. 

Vic Sadot Music Report: Noam Chomsky & 9/11 “BLOWBACK OR BLOODY TREASON” Questions NOAM CHOMSKY & The WILLFUL IGNORANCE OF 9/11”

 Noam Chomsky & Willful Ignorance of 9/11 by Kevin Ryan

This broadside is fired also as a salute to the work of Kevin Ryan, who responded to recent Chomsky answer in Florida to a question by 9/11 Truth activist Bob Tuskin that ridiculed and belittled Architects & Engineers for 9/11 Truth as a “tiny” group. YouTube Channel featured in the post on the Kevin Ryan exposé of Noam Chomsky’s specious complaints about people who continue to seek the truth about what happened on 9/11/01 and how it was used to terrorize Americans into accepting the loss of their Constitutional "Bill of Rights" and for a global and never-ending “War on Terror”. Accountability remains to be had in order to restore the Constitution and genuine democratic control of the American government to the People.

Another Nineteen: Investigating Legitimate 9/11 Suspects

Another Nineteen: Investigating Legitimate 9/11 Suspects An interview at Global Research TV by James Corbett with chemist, author, and 9/11 investigator Kevin Ryan about his new book. Why were these questions that are obvious to any crime investigation not pursued? Who had means, motive, and opportunity to pull off such an operation that included standing down US forces, making sure that targets were hit, pulling buildings with demolition explosives, and covering up evidence after the crime? Who benefited to what degree? Why were those who failed to defend the USA on that day not fired, demoted, or prosecuted? Why were they all instead rewarded with promotions and given more power and money? Kevin Ryan has another 19 suspects for us to consider.
