Allen SmallOn the September 16, 2012 episode of Exposing Faux Capitalism with Jason Erb, I interviewed Allen Small, leader of the Ontario Libertarian Party.

We had an in-depth discussion on the following issues:

– How he came to a libertarian understanding of issues, starting from the 1960s and culminating with his eventual leadership of the Ontario Libertarian Party in 2011
– Why the Libertarian Party of Ontario is “the party of choice”
– His informative experience with teaching in both the public and private school systems
– Ontario’s increasing nanny state
– How Canada shares an interesting distinction with North Korea and Cuba in being the only countries to prohibit its residents from paying out of their own pockets for primary health care
– Why the current government-monopolized health care system in Ontario has failed its residents, and what remedies exist

And in the second hour, I covered my article about an interestingly-timed article on an Islamic Centre, and talked about suspect claims and figures within the 9/11 Truth Movement.

9/11 Truth Movement demonstrator, Los Angeles.

Rudi Dekkers, the owner of Huffman Aviation, the flight school where alleged 9/11 hijackers Mohamed Atta and Marwan al-Shehhi trained at, dropped some bombshell revelations on the September 11, 2011 episode of Erskine Overnight, in speaking about his new book, Guilty by Association.

He said he never saw Atta and al-Shehhi ever pray when they were at his flight school, and that the voice purported to be Atta’s from the alleged cockpit voice recorder didn’t sound at all like Atta’s to him.

He also said that Atta was a mediocre student and was warned six weeks into his training that he would be kicked out unless he shaped up. Ultimately, upon graduation, Atta and al-Shehhi were only qualified to fly a small plane with a few seats, and not a Boeing 767 jumbo jet, as he and al-Shehhi are alleged to have flown so skillfully into the World Trade towers.

Ron Paul, member of the United States House of...

With Congressman Ron Paul’s recent announcement of the formation of his 2012 presidential exploratory committee, my question is, will he throw 9/11 Truth under the bus again, as he did in 2008?

Regular readers to this site will know that when I use such strong language, I don’t use it lightly.

Here’s why I argue he did just that in 2008.

From the 2008 South Carolina Republican primary debate, in response to a question about whether he would disavow the views of 9/11 Truthers, he said:

I don’t endorse anything they say.

Really, Ron? You didn’t endorse them pointing out Transportation Secretary Norman Mineta’s testimony to the 9/11 Commission, which contradicted Vice-President Dick Cheney’s timeline about when he arrived in the bunker by about half an hour?

Is Dick Cheney a reliable source, when he claimed the office of Vice-President isn’t part of the executive branch of government, despite the very Constitution he swore an oath to uphold making the Vice-President first in the line of secession if the President dies or is deemed disabled?

Or the fact that a third steel building fell that day, which wasn’t hit by a plane, unlike the other two, and that the BBC reported it had fallen while it was still clearly standing in the background as the reporter made that false report?

Or at the time, the hundreds of professional architects and engineers with Architects and Engineers for 9/11 Truth, now nearly 1500 of them, who continue to question the official story of 9/11?

While he was one of the few members of Congress who courageously voted against authorization for the war in Afghanistan, and the 2003 Iraq War, would the American people have supported those wars without the events of 9/11? What about the clearly unconstitutional USA PATRIOT ACT?

Time will tell if Ron Paul really meant what he said in 2008, and whether he’ll throw 9/11 Truth under the bus yet again, or whether he’ll separate facts from conclusions, and get to the very root of the justification for so many of the things he opposes.
