The Asolo Theatre in Sarasoto 'at the last minute' backed out of its
deal with 9/11 truth organizers to rent out theatre for Sunday night's scheduled
performance. Organizer Jimmy Walter said it looks like an act of outright censorship.
Jimmy Walter, the millionaire philanthropist pushing the 9/11 truth movement to
the streets, said Wednesday the Asolo Theatre in Sarasota, Florida, at “the
last minute” backed out of its pre-arranged deal to host a video presentation
set for Sunday, the last day of a five-day 9/11 truth conference starting in Tampa.
“They told us today they couldn’t host our event, pulling out at
the last minute saying there existed technical difficulties,” said Walter
in a phone conversation from his Tampa hotel, where he is kicking-off the first
night of his 9/11 truth conference called “The New Pearl Harbor –
Confronting the Evidence” at the downtown Tampa Theatre.
“I found out another group is staging a play on the same day so it looks
to me like it’s another case of outright censorship. We are going to look
into the matter thoroughly to find out what really happened, but still will
holding our Sunday video presentation at the Beach Theatre in St. Pete Beach.”
Walter, known for spending millions on trying to get out the “true 9/11
story” appeared on Greg Szymanski’s radio show, “The Investigative
Journal” Wednesday, just hours prior to the opening night of his truth
conference, saying he was“ shocked and appalled” by the last minute
cancellation of the Sunday night portion of his five-day truth tour.
“I decided on Tampa because it is my hometown and it’s harder for
the media and others to ignore me here,” said Walter. “It’s
is also where Gen. Norman Schwarzkopf lives, a person who I have openly called
a traitor for his statements about Iraq. I have openly challenged him to a face
to face meeting, but I know he never will do that.”
Walter’s truth conference, presenting compelling evidence 9/11 was an
inside government job, opened to a crowd of more than 500 to 600 Wednesday night
in a theatre that seats 1,400, a good turn-out considering the mainstream media
blackout across the country and the disinformation campaign spread by the Bush
administration, essentially keeping the American people in the dark about the
real 9/11 facts.
And the media was again strangely absent from the opening night 9/11 event,
as several in attendance reported no major newspapers or television stations
covered the event.
One of the Wednesday night speaker’s, Eric Hufschmid, known for his book
“Painful Questions” an Analysis of the September 11th Attack, said
prior to the conference he was hoping events like the one being staged at the
Tampa Theatre would “finally wake up a sleeping public.”
“I think it’s time for everyone to do their part and at least listen
and confront the evidence,” said Hufschmid, who was one of the first to
call the American public’s attention to the technical impossibility of
the WTC collapsing from only solely jet fuel as the government contends.
“There is just so much disinformation out there, spread by the media
and those actually trying to disrupt the 9/11 truth movement. It’s time
for everyone to unite and look at the real evidence and hold those involved
in the 9/11 conspiracy accountable.”
Besides Hufschmid, Walter assembled a group of speakers who at times held the
audience spellbound, leading some to tears, especially when WTC janitor and
national hero, William Rodriguez, spoke about how he heard explosions in the
North Tower basement prior to the airplane strike.
Rodriguez, who saved at least 15 lives before being the last man out of the
North Tower, reminded the audience how his statements about WTC basement explosions
“have been censored by the mainstream media” as well as being completely
omitted in the 9/11 Commission’s final report.
The silencing of Rodriguez’s testimony, as well as the testimony of at
least 20 other people who heard the same North Tower explosions, is just another
clear-cut example of how massive the 9/11 cover-up has spread, leaving America
essentially to hear only a bogus government story lacking any semblance of credibility
when, as Walter says, “confronted with the real 9/11 evidence.”
Also speaking at the five-day Florida event is Morgan Reynolds, the former
chief economist in the Bush I administration, who has publicly called for a
new 9/11 investigation, adding the evidence points to a controlled demolition
of the WTC.
Reynolds is the author of numerous books, primarily in economics, taxes and
labor issues, but last year shocked America, as being the first high-level Bush
official to publicly claim 9/11 appeared to be tied to elements within the U.S.
Besides Reynolds, popular radio hosts Dave von Kleist and Joyce Riley, rounded
out the speaking panel, von Kleist known for his video “In Plane Site,”
which proved that the damage incurred at the Pentagon could not have been caused
by a 757.
Riley, on the other hand, has focused her research attention on the illegal
use of depleted uranium, producing a recent video called “Beyond Treason,”
the story behind the cover-up and illegal weaponry being used in the Iraq War.
Heather LaMela, a Tampa resident in the audience, said she always had her doubts
about the 9/11 government story from the beginning, but had been kept in the
dark by the one-sided media coverage.
“After listening to the speakers, this confirmed my belief that there
must have been some government knowledge and involvement,” said LaMela.
“I just wished I would have hears all this a lot sooner. I guess you can
thank the media for that.”
And regarding the purpose of the five-day 9/11 truth-out, Walter, the event’s
“When Vice President Dick Cheney and twenty four Bush officials and friends
signed a call in 2000 for a "New Pearl Harbor," as an excuse to invade
Iraq; they said it would take "some catastrophic and catalyzing event,
like a new Pearl Harbor, to convince the American People that we must invade
Iraq to project American military power. Time Magazine called for "a unified
Pearl Harbor, sort of purple American fury.”
He added that he intends to use Tampa as a first-stop in his 9/11 truth tour,
planning in the future to organize other similar events in cities across the
country, emphasizing the following points:
1. Why the Bush administration ignored warning signs about
2. Why they leaked classified information to the media.
3. Why members of the administration lied under oath and obstructed
justice in an investigation about national security violations.
4. Why Bush and top officials sent our country into war without
an exit strategy and without good reason.
5. Why the Republican administration has created massive deficits,
while cutting spending on social programs and veteran benefits, and giving tax
cuts to the richest Americans.
6. Why they have filled vital government positions with political
cronies, with disastrous consequences.
