BALLAD OF WILLIAM RODRIGUEZ segment from the 9/11/16 Vic Sadot Concert Released 9/14/16
This first of several musical and talking segments to be released from that 18 song concert has some reflections on how the song about William Rodriguez came to be written out of a suggestion made by veteran 9/11 Truth and Gandian Peace Activist David Slesinger at the DC Emergency Truth Convergence. Photos of people Vic met or heard at that conference and got to know better over the years are in the new video.
Many people remain unaware that the first attempt to blow up the World Trade Center was in 1993. One suspect was able to escape prosecution by using his hidden wired mic to record his conversations with his FBI handlers who provided a live bomb instead of a fake one to entrap the other participants lined up by the FBI for the first psy op attempt. There is an early verse about how William Rodriguez survived that first bombing attempt.
Early street scene in Ballad of William Rodriguez in which "Harley Guy" Mark Walsh, said to be a FOX News stringer performs a "crisis actor" role by implanting the scientifically impossible "Official Story" in the first media minutes of Sept 11, 2001. Mark Walsh flashes the OK sign as he claims to his Fox News friend that he “witnessed the entire thing from beginning to end” from where he lives 5 blocks away. “I saw this plane come out of nowhere and just ream right into the side of the Twin Tower, exploding through the other side. And then I witnessed both towers collapse, one first, and then the second, MOSTLY DUE TO STRUCTURAL FAILURE BECAUSE THE FIRE WAS JUST TOO INTENSE.” How many people stopped to think, during that tragic moment being broadcast live on every media outlet, that jet fuel is kerosene, and that in the more than 100 year history of steel frame buildings not one steel frame building had ever collapsed due to temperatures from the fuel in a mostly aluminum plane. Earlier exposed CIA mind control experiments revealed that the terminology for this implanting technique is called “trauma based conditioning”.
Two people who were lucky to not come to the World Trade Center at the start of the day were Lucky Larry Silverstein, the owner, and William Rodriguez, the head janitor, who was late and jumped right into the rescue efforts. He told me in our phone interview in July 2005 that he felt explosions at the lower level before he heard anything above, and within those first morning seconds Felipe David came into the Maintenance Office on sub-level 1 screaming with his skin burned and dripping from his face and hands. Willie was accused of being a con-man by several people, but my take is to be grateful that there are some people in this world who are not going to be bought or intimidated into participating in treasonous, murderous, duplicitous, criminal acts on their fellow workers and fellow human beings. The world needs more people who live that Golden Rule that's in the best of all religious and philosophical traditions. Now "Harley Guy", there is your classic media psy op "Crisis Actor". The photo of him in this article is linked to his testimony from that morning, if you want to see how it sells 15 years later after many scholarly detective studies as compared to how it sells 15 minutes after you hear that "America Is Under Attack by Muslim Terrorists" and "Both Towers at the World Trade Center have collapsed due to the intense fires of jet fuel from two passenger jets that reamed into them at upper levels.
He went on to rebuild the World Trade Center without having to deal with the hugely expensive asbestos contamination complications that riddled his old properties just recently acquired from the New York Port Authority through connections well detailed after 15 years of research, particularly by Christopher Bollyn in “Solving 9-11” and Kevin Ryan in “Another Nineteen Suspects”, which very oddly does not mention Silverstein among the 19 key suspects. I respect both authors and promote them and many others who may differ on some items. Respect is not a derivative of agreement, but has much more to do with the character and integrity one sees in a truth seeker and truth teller over time. And David Ray Griffin remains the Dean of them all! He's even published a new book on 9/11 for the 15th Anniversary.
In this screenshot we see Donna Marsh O'Connor speaking at the 9-11-05 NYC demo at the United Nations Dag Hammorskold Plaza holding a photo of her dead pregnant daughter Vanessa Lang Langden sobbing and screaming, “Where are the men in the suits today? Why are they not here? I want real answers to why my daughter was killed? And I’m not getting them!”These screenshots are from the updated version of the video at Vic Sadot YouTube Channel, which has more text explanation to better identify people from theDC Emergency Truth Convergence at American University, the National Press Club, and Lafayette Square rally across from the White House that all took place on the weekend of July 22-24 in Washington, DC. Vic and Rob Sadot provided music entertainment and Vic first sang two new songs of his Lafayette Square and American University: “Mad Cowboy Disease” and “Are You A Citizen Or Are You A Slave?”
Rob Sadot on electric guitar and Vic Sadot on acoustic guitar at American University on Rob's Birthday, July 23. The pair hauled a complete sound system to the stage and was largely ignored by the scholarly gathering that the musicians drove in from Delaware to perform for. They did not seem to acknowledge a role for singer-songwriters in the movement.

Banks.
Here we see Commission Chairs Thomas Keane on the left and Lee Hamilton on the right consulting with Executive Director Philip Zelikow on the Commission's proceedings. The Commissioners later wrote a book called "Unprecedented" to cover their butts by claiming "we were set up to fail". Philip Shenon of the New York Times wrote a book called "The Commission: The Uncensored History of the 9/11 Commission". One reviewer Evan Greer states four years later in 2008: "The black hat of Mr. Shenon’s story is the commission’s executive director, Philip Zelikow. Brilliant but abrasive and secretive, he is regarded by some commission staff members as a White House mole, compromised by his close ties to Condoleezza Rice, then President Bush’s national security adviser. The book’s portrait of Mr. Zelikow is harsh, but Mr. Shenon seems to have reached out to Mr. Zelikow to get both sides of the story. (Mr. Zelikow scoffs at charges of conflict and conspiracy made by Mr. Shenon’s sources.)"
San Francisco activists were quick to react to the 9/11 Commisssion cover-up story, claiming that it was "full of holes" and dumping mock-up copies with holes it into the SFBay. All of these photos are screenshots from Vic Sadot's 2016 concert version of "The Ballad of William Rodriguez". Other important screenshots from the new 9 minute 22 second version follow. Please share this Truth Troubadour Blog and the links to the video with people you want to wake up to the truth about 9/11, the crime scene deliberately not solved in order to use its effects to manipulate people to support unnecessary resource wars abroad and repressive laws and money grabs at home.
The last thing to consider these days is how so much of the 9/11 Truth movement got derailed by the energy and effort that went into responding to the appeals from Senator Bob Graham of the long-discredited Joint Congressional Committee Report on 9/11, which was done by a staff that largely moved across town to serve under 9/11 suspect Philip Zelikow's 9/11 Commission to produce a sanctified set of lies that are now enshrined in a 9/11 Museum at Ground Zero in New York. Zelikow should have been a suspect or should have suffered some consequences given that he had served as Undersecretary for National Security under Condoleeza Rice in the Bush-Cheney White House. He is a dual citizen of Israel and the USA and his academic expertise is maintaining public myths.
What kind of 9/11 Truth movement devotes countless hours to trying to get "28 pages" from a long discredited Congressional Committee's 2002 report while ignoring the Bill of Rights Campaign to get the full 6,700 pages of the 2014 Senate Report on US Torture? Senator Diane Feinstein DE-CA only released a 500 page summary. Yet that information repudiates much of what is in the Congressional and Commission reports due to the fact that some people who provided "testimony" from torture sessions have since been absolved and released after spending years in Guantanamo under the most cruel and harsh conditions. The best article I've seen that brings that home is one written in Washington's Blog.
Barrie Zwicker (please excuse screenshot spelling error seen) presenting at the DC Truth Emergency Convergence. Zwicker was a major media analyst based in Toronto when his career was dead-ended by his committment to getting to the truth about 9/11. He had already produced two excellent documentary videos: "The Great Deception" in 2002 and "The Great Conspiracy" in 2004. His book "Towers of Deception: The Media Cover-up of 9/11" may be his masterpiece since it concentrates on the criminal complicity of the corporate media in covering-up the crimes and spreading unsubstantiated disinformation about what actually happened.
