A large part of the reason that 9/11 conspiracy theories persist is simply that people not understanding the physics of the collapse. I was talking to a conspiracy theorist a while back, trying to explain why the towers collapsed. I said that the floor trusses were heated until they sagged, then they pulled away from the walls. Here's a visualization of this with the floor slabs removed so you can see the trusses.

He asked why would they pull away from the walls. They were not any heavier. They were still attached to the walls. It was still the same mass being supported by the ends of the truss, so why would it pull? It made no sense to him.

I realized I'd not really given it much thought myself. I had to...

Mystery Solved by Fox 6 News in a later video, lights at the courthouse illuminating a flock of seagulls.

The original video is set for night exposure, which creates trails behind the brightly lit seagulls. The cars in the video have similar trails

If you apply a persistent image filter to the seagulls you get:

Some people still insist the traffic camera video shows something a lot higher and larger than seagulls, but in this next video I compare them to the courthouse seagulls in size, which makes them only a few hundred feet away.

Roland Angle-vs-NIST.

In a recent interview with the BBC, Roland Angle claimed that NIST did not have any explanation for the 2.25 seconds of essentially free fall descent observed during the collapse of World Trade Center Building 7, saying:

The shooting at the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School happened today, February 14th 2018. But if we search for stories about it from before today we actually find some:

This led some excessively suspicious types to claim that the event was pre-planned with media stories pre-written. Of course this is nonsensical, but why are these stories pre-dating the incident?

It's not a new thing. It happened with the church shooting in Charleston. In fact it happens with every single news story that gets broad coverage.

The reason is simply to do...

This is a long discussion I had with Patrick Roddie, who firmly believes that the government is engaged in a secret geoengineering program with "chemtrails". Patrick runs a web site StopSprayingUs.com, and frequently appears at chemtrail/anti-geoengineering events.

We start out talking about the physics of contrails, then move on to the problems of sampling for aluminum, satellite images of clouds, halos and sundogs, and geoengineering proposals

The conversation was recorded on Jan 10th 2018.

X-EDS Slag Metabunk.

The following slide has been part of Richard Gage's 9/11 Truth presentation for several years, at least since 2008 when it showed up in a version of 9/11: Blueprint for Truth video (which is basically Gage giving the extended version of his slideshow).
Metabunk 2018-01-27 08-05-02.

It's supposedly the spectrum of a sample of slag taken from a cut steel beam that's currently in the International Peace Garden on the US/Canadian border. Metabunk 2018-01-27 08-33-37.

He says this is the chemical signature of thermite. He also claims that the irregular and messy nature of the cut on the beam shows it was not Oxy-acetylene, contrasting it with a "clean" cut on a different beam.

In a recent presentation, Dane Wigington, the Lead Researcher at Geoengineeringwatch.org showed what he said was the effect of "radio frequency" on water, and spoke of his concern on the effects on human health.

The problem is it's not radio frequency that's making the water freeze in mid air. It's not even being frozen by sound. It's actually a harmless trick of the camera called the wagon wheel effect.
Metabunk 2018-01-26 11-49-15.

The wagon wheel effect was first noticed when filming coach chases in old westerns. This effect can freeze objects, like a wagon wheel, if their rotation speed is synchronized with the speed of the camera. You can replicate this effect yourself.

In Wigington's example a water hose is attached to a speaker that's...

Suspicious minds sometimes point to the flight path of American Airlines Flight 77 into the Pentagon on 9/11. The plane is heading straight for the building when it makes a descending turn described as things like a "corkscrew" or a "an incredibly precise diving turn " or " incredible, sweeping 270-degree descending turn"

Google Earth Pro 2018-01-16 13-15-00.

In fact the turn is perfectly normal, and very easy to execute. The reason for the turn is to lose altitude. The turn rate was more or less a standard 2 minute 360° turn, and all he had to do was reduce throttle and turn right.

Tic Tac Nimitz.

The image was first used in connection with the Nimitz incident in this 2015 article:
https://fightersweep.com/1460/x-files-edition/ http://archive.is/YU5Tl
upload_2017-10-11_9-17-37.

It was used in the original "To The Stars" presentation by Chris Mellon
20171221-140634-xjla3.

The image was also used today by George Knapp in a piece on LasVegasNow
20171221-140008-ihwd2.

However this "UFO" image is in fact of a mylar party balloon. It comes from this Rense.com page dated 2005:
