American flag painted on chipboard--Ann Arbor

Isn't the flag supposed to have 50 stars?

Uno). The 49 star flag flew from July 4, 1959 to July 3, 1960. As it did not include Hawaii we now call this the Trump flag. You'll see it at all his rallies. Honest! Dos). As is well-documented the National Institute of Standards and Technology found no corroborating evidence for alternative hypotheses suggesting the WTC towers were brought down by controlled demolition using explosives planted prior to Sept. 11, 2001. NIST also determined that the collapse of 7 WTC was due to the effects of fires which burned for almost seven hours. The fatal blow to the building coming when the 13th floor collapsed, weakening a critical steel support column that led to catastrophic failure, and extreme heat causing some steel beams to lose strength, causing further failures until the entire structure succumbed. Also cited as a factor was the collapse of the nearby towers, which broke the city water main, leaving the sprinkler system in the bottom half of building 7 without water. Tres). Once the butchery ends, the pathos of political Islamism will deserve as much attention as its monstrosity--Mark Lilla. Cuatro). If I ever hit the lotto I pledge to donate all the proceeds to studying the psychopathology of symptoms (paranoia, psychosis, etc.) leading to a belief in conspiracy theories. I've really had enough of this bilge.

The NIST WTC 7 Report: Bush Science reaches its peak
Kevin R. Ryan
September 10, 2008

In a famous book by Antoine de Saint Exupery, a little prince from another planet asks the narrator to draw a sheep. After several unsatisfactory attempts, the narrator simply draws a box and tells the little prince that the sheep is in the box. The little prince then exclaims -- "That is exactly the way I wanted it!"1

Just so, the Bush Administration asked its scientists at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) for an explanation as to what happened at the World Trade Center (WTC) on 9/11. In response to this request, NIST drew up a series of fanciful stories over a period of years, each story differing from the previous one. Finally, after seven long years, NIST published its last story for WTC 7 by simply saying, in effect: "The explanation is in our computer."2

As expected, however, this explanation in a box leaves much to be desired for those of us who prefer to live in reality, instead of in a fictional world. On the other hand, we are learning something from NIST with this new report, and that is that when government scientists begin working for a political agenda above all else, there is no limit to the extent of deception that they will engage in. We also know that those who have produced the NIST WTC reports must now assume personal responsibility for the ongoing 9/11 Wars, and the millions of deaths that will result from those wars.

NIST begins with a few little white lies, and never looks back

Thanks Linh. That (by Kevin Ryan) is something I'd missed.

NIST (National Institute of Standards and Technology), following a multimillion dollar study lasting 3 years for the two towers and 6 years for Building 7, is replete with disinformation, circular reasoning, and outright falsification of evidence. When, for example, asked whether the investigation included looking for evidence of explosives, NIST spokesman Michael Newman said, "If you're looking for something that's not there, you're wasting your time and taxpayers' money." So, of course NIST found no corroborating evidence for alternative hypotheses suggesting the WTC towers were brought down by controlled demolition using explosives, because they didn't look for any - circular reasoning indeed.

When John Gross, lead structural engineer of NIST, was asked whether the investigation had found any evidence of molten metal at the WTC site, he said he was unaware of any. But numerous widely available and documented accounts testify to the existence of molten metal found at all 3 World Trade Center towers destroyed on 9/11. And so on...
