Major media ‘memory hole’ US presidential candidate’s expert opinion on WTC

Of special note on this September 11, 2001 interview with Donald Trump is the Republican presidential candidate’s important remark concerning how the World Trade Center Twin Towers were likely brought down–through controlled demolition.

This prescient observation is being intentionally overlooked by major media in the wake of 9/11’s fifteenth anniversary. Many of these ‘news’ outlets chose instead to single out a brief and arguably unrelated comment by Trump early on in the exchange–‘bragged’ that he ‘owned the tallest building’ in Manhattan next to the WTC– while failing to recognize and highlight his much more important expert opinion concerning the World Trade Center’s fate alongside those of its inhabitants.

This prescient observation is being intentionally overlooked by major media in the wake of 9/11’s fifteenth anniversary.

“At one point during the nearly 10-minute interview,” Washington Post political reporter Jenna Johnson writes, “Trump mentioned that his building in the Financial District was now the tallest.

“Forty Wall St. actually was the second-tallest building in downtown Manhattan, and it was, actually, before the World Trade Center, was the tallest,” Trump said in an interview with WWOR-TV in New York when asked whether his building had been damaged. “And then when they built the World Trade Center, it became known as the second-tallest, and now it’s the tallest.”

The Huffington Post likewise took the statement out of context to carry on the now-routine Trump-bashing campaign.

Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump has been widely criticized for bragging, after the collapse of the twin towers on Sept. 11, 2001, that his building at 40 Wall Street was now the tallest skyscraper in lower Manhattan.

Not only was Trump’s boast despicable, coming as it did just hours after nearly 3,000 people lost their lives ― it was also a lie, according to architectural reports reviewed by The Huffington Post.

This is a clear effort to mislead and confuse political reportage by front-running any meaningful discussion of and plea for a true investigation of the most significant historical and geopolitical event in the past half century.

Trump’s ‘boast’ took place at around the two-minute mark. Yet here is Trump’s key remark from that discussion that begin at 5:30, following the interviewer’s suggestion that explosives may have been the cause of the WTC Towers’ destruction:

I happen to think they had not only a plane but bombs that exploded almost simultaneously, because I can’t imagine anything being able to go through that wall. Most buildings are built where the steel is on the inside around the elevator shaft. This one was built from the outside, which is the strongest structure you can have, and it [came down] almost just like a can of soup. 

The above once again suggests how we in fact live in the United States of Amnesia, as Michael Eric Dyson once put it, largely because of our deceptive media and educational institutions airbrushing history for the Inner Party, much as in Orwell’s 1984 or Soviet Russia.

Likewise, as Russ Winter (whose post on the interview brought this to my attention) observes,

Donald Trump essentially gave the Architects and Engineers for 9/11 Truth version of the World Trade Center towers free fall … Trump called the towers “very strong structures” and stated only powerful explosives could have taken them down. He dismissed cartoon physics and remarked that an aluminum plane could not have sliced through the steel girded exterior.

  1. First I’ve heard of Trump’s speculation about bombs in the WTC. Amazing. Also first time I’ve seen the video of the guy getting explosively ejected from the tower. Wow. And I thought I’d seen everything! 🙂

  2. Only explosives, maybe directed energy weapons and thermite cutting torches. In my theory, the 93 WTC Clinton Event was the pretext to get the right people access to the WTC for years in order to set the incredibly complicated demolition tasks necessary to “pull it” off.

    I think the DEW was instrumental in assisting the thermite cutter in the collapse. That helped reduce the explosive charge required to pancake the freefall. I love the mystery of Gelatin, the B-Thing and what was going on there at that time and the bodies(bags) that fell from hell.

    With Trump coming to bear on this issue you have to wonder where Giuliani and the Clinton-Bush crime syndicate were at with Trump as a possible future candidate. Trump is part of the conspiracy and just another change from the bilderbergs. If you are a believer in the ‘limited hangout’ disclosure method, you wonder just how far back these events are planned. Biblical followers may find it easier than non-believers. There is nothing to prove that the thermite wasn’t in the steel when the towers were built in the 70’s.


    Ecclesiastes 1:9, “The thing that hath been, it is that which shall be; and that which is done is that which shall be done: and there is no new thing under the sun.”

    Ecclesiastes 1:11 There is no remembrance of former things, nor will there be any remembrance of later things yet to be among those who come after.

    1. My question is:
      if you can fly a 757 into any building, pick a window, pick a floor, and the building falls perfectly in its own footprint, Why do we need demolition companies anymore?

      You can just buy an old scrapped 747, remotely Fly it into a giant skyscraper for a perfect demolition at a fraction of the cost.

      So why are there still demolition companies around costing millions and millions of dollars to knock down skyscrapers around the world?

      Shirley a small Piper will be perfect for a smaller 20 story building?

    2. Interesting comment but
      “There is nothing to prove that the thermite wasn’t in the steel when the towers were built in the 70’s.”
      the burden of proof suggesting such a scenario happened this way is entirely upon you, as it is an unlikely (but interesting) theory

      1. Don’t forget suN,
        Silverstein had just bought the buildings and there were crews of men supposedly revamping the telephone and Internet systems. That is a fact. They even powered down each section of the building to perform their tasks. I’ve always assumed they powered down in case there was an electrical short it might have ignited the thermite.

        Just a thought.

      1. Thank you. I guess I had it in my mind that he’d just recently made the statement at the recent commemoration ceremony. So you’re saying that the Huffington Post ran a story about statements that Trump made 15 years ago (on the morning of 911) about building heights but side-stepped his explosives statement.

  3. Just a thought here. Since Hillary Clinton told the world she has pneumonia, now she’s going To be able to use this as an excuse for ALL her future coughing fits.

    Think about it, if she starts coughing during the upcoming Debate, she’ll just say it’s left over pneumonia. Perfect cover.

    1. Today, Russ Limbog said Hillary was seen at an event on Saturday and she looked haggard, exhausted, with bags under her eyes down to her knees.
      Levaquin just ain’t what it used to be, huh? As far as using the pneumonia excuse, nah, don’t think it will hold back the water. Dr Ted Noel is still preaching about Hillary being laden with Parkinson’s even though he was lambasted last week for alleged lies and corruption. Action, reaction. Happens every time. Good guys and bad guys going head to head, all the time, every time.

  4. Trump is all about business, he says anything to get a ‘deal’. Considering he´s friends with big wig Zionists and Giuliani this don´t mean so much. At best he is controlled opposition like Infowars, hating on Muslims …

    1. Aren’t you full of Sh!t? What are you doing on this awesome blog, normally peopled with thoughtful and interesting commenters?
      The pedo-satanist media and all the Bush/Beck factions hate Trump. That’s enough for me to love him.
      Cheney’s presidency taught us that nothing matters except getting your hands on those levers of power. Trump is our last chance and only hope. He may be what you say, but he also may be able to put people in positions that are not compromised by their actions in their secret society “hunting clubs.”

    2. Trump has had to deal with lots and lots of shysters over his career and perhaps he has some of their rough edges. And, I’m sure he knows Larry “Pull it” Silverstein, too. Larry knows Bibi, so that means Trump knows Bibi and is probably in cahoots with him. It’s dangerous and foot loose to make some of these associations, every one of us knows somebody who might have a twinge of a dark side, just a twinge. To choose Hillary over Trump defies description. A known criminal versus a guy who has a record that is not littered with dead bodies and corruption that is blatant. Then again, American is full of robots who are one issue voters who would put the criminal in charge and guarantee our demise.
      Thanks to all of our schools for their terrific courses on analytical thinking from K-12. It’s why we are exceptional, you know.

    1. No trump can never go there, but he knows……

      But if you have a bridge to sell I may be willing to buy it.

      My Broker says the bridges from Colorado are the best investment according to Al Gore’s people.

      I’ll get my people together with your people and will do sushi.


  5. The provocateur, that ludicrously poses as “Democratic nominee” for POTUS and that for long forfeited the privilege to be called by name, in mark 13:30

    lies that “911 is an inside job” is … a lie ! And lies that “nobody died at Sandy Hook” is … a lie ! inadvertently and unintentionally the would-be POTUS commends Donald Trump for NOT “challenging” that 911 is an inside job, for NOT “challenging” that the OK-City bombing is an inside job and for NOT “challenging” that nobody died at Sandy Hook: how could any honest person with sane common sense deny these stubborn facts ?

    That overambitious and power addicted female creature, though, lies as it breathes and in politics such is the hallmark of a fascist. For the debates Trump is to expect cold blooded and impudent provocations. A bug in his ear may be helpful for the campaign manager to count for him to ten before Trump opens his big NY-City loudmouth.

  6. This is certainly a watershed moment for Trump and 9/11 Truth. The agenda-setting displayed by the “tallest building” distraction is really repulsive. Liberals must certainly be the the most in love with this whole consequentialist approach (end justifies means). In an effort to prevent Trump from being elected, they’d rather preserve the lie about 9/11. I’m sure there are well-meaning liberals at journalistic travesties such as Huffington Post who genuinely think Trump represents a threat to the welfare state (or something), but this liberal strategy will backfire. It is, of course, not strictly a lib phenomenon. But as the issue is Trump and 9/11, the ostensible opposition (Democratic Party) seems to think a Hillary presidency is important enough to make a trade-off for truth on the 15th of 9/11. Despicable. –Paul

      1. (((Webster Tarpley))) is a radical leftist bolshevik that subscribes to the fictional narrative of (((World War II))). Which was fought for (((international banksters))) and the (((Soviet Union))).

        People still listen to this (((communist)))?

        1. The simplest test to weed out suspected sayanim is to ask questions as to how they feel about the Israel/Palestine relationship. Also, how they feel about the tremendous “aid” packages of weaponry to Israel, how they feel about the “imposition” of Sharia law in the US and how they justify US imperialism in the Middle East.
          Russ Limbog is clearly the test case on these issues and it’s very easy to see where ol’ Rushbo stands with the folks who pay his ultra-fat salary.

  7. During the early parts of this interview with the local NYC ‘news’ channel, Trump stated Silverstein is a ‘good friend of mine’.

    He didn’t have to bring up Silverstein at all and he didn’t have to describe him as a good friend; but he did.
