Bobby McIlvaine and Australia’s ABC — A Message for Michelle Guthrie

(L) The North Tower not collapsing, but EXPLODING. (R) The ABC news room

A Message for Michelle Guthrie, the Managing Director of the Australian Broadcasting Corporation (ABC).

Dear Ms Guthrie,

There is a father in America that has truly inspired me to investigate with integrity — without fear or favour. This is Bob McIlvaine. His son, Bobby Jnr, was killed in the lobby of the North Tower of the World Trade Center on 9/11/2001 — and his body was taken to the morgue. Bobby died from an explosion in the lobby — unrelated to the the plane impact 93 floors above.

Bob McIlvaine

After The 911 Commission Report was released in 2004, Bob McIlvaine quickly discovered that many aspects of the document were fraudulent. He went on a relentless and thorough search for the truth, and came to the conclusion that the official narrative is a lie.

You have a legal degree, and are therefore familiar with “burden of proof”, “beyond a reasonable doubt,” and the presentation of facts versus speculation. Unfortunately, the media and Western governments rushed to an immediate and pre-scripted position that Osama bin Laden was responsible for the attacks on New York.

Gen. Wesley Clark

The 9-11 official narrative was then used as an excuse to initiate war.

Unfortunately, as far as I am aware, the ABC also never reported on the details of a 2001 memo that outlined plan to DESTROY seven countries in five years. This was revealed to us in 2007 by General Wesley Clark (Supreme Allied Commander Europe of NATO, 1997 – 2000). He was told of this plan a few weeks after 9-11, when visiting the Pentagon. The countries for destruction were “Iraq, and then Syria, Lebanon, Libya, Somalia, Sudan and, finishing off, Iran.”

ABC’s Charter and Vision

The ABC Charter encourages “…understanding of Australian attitudes on world affairs…”, and there is the assumption that the ABC represents the various views of the Australian population. The number of Australians that understand that the official 9/11 narrative a lie, is not insignificant. I would guess it is a million or more. How would we know?

The first 9/11 poll was carried out by The New York Times and CBS News in May 2002. But they did not publish the result. I wonder why? A CBS poll two years later (4/8/04) asked the question, “Do you think members of the Bush Administration are telling the truth [about 9-11]”. Only 21% said yes. 66% said the administration was “…hiding something”, 10% said they were lying, and 4% were not sure.

Take into account, too, that many of those that answered the poll had probably never heard that a THIRD skyscraper (Building 7) collapsed that afternoon. The many thousands of architects and engineers that support a new investigation have found that awareness of Building 7 is limited, but “when people are shown video of its collapse, a majority suspect it was a controlled demolition…”

Opening Old Wounds

In my correspondence with an ABC 774 Radio host, I was told that opening the wounds of 9/11 is disrespectful of the victims and their families. I say it is dishonour to let their memory be buried under an egregious lie. To quote a Russian proverb:

“It is better to be slapped with the truth — than kissed with a lie.”

I thus support Bob McIlvaine and his family in their desire for the truth. He, along with Richard Gage, AIA, recently announced the Bobby McIlvaine World Trade Center Investigation Act (in the US). This is supported by close to 3,000 architects and engineers, as well as two-dozen 9/11 family members — plus whistle-blower, Peter Michael Ketcham, a former NIST employee, who has exposed the fraudulent investigation under the Bush administration. The draft legislation would empanel a select committee to re-investigate the destruction of the THREE World Trade Center towers.

The evidence is now so overwhelming. In a review of David Ray Griffin’s new book, “Bush And Cheney: How They Ruined America And The World”, Edward Curtin writes:

“Astutely logical, deeply sourced, and scientifically compelling, the book’s conclusion can only be rejected by one adamantly closed to accepting the ugly truth about the US government and its media accomplices.” [my emphasis]

To quote Dr Paul Craig Roberts, (this award winning journalist was once the US Assistant Secretary of the Treasury for Economic Policy under President Reagan, 1981):

“…this defining event of our time [9/11], which has launched the US [and Australia] on interminable wars of aggression and a domestic police state, is a taboo subject for investigation in the media.” [my emphasis]

“Our” ABC

Ms Guthrie, you have been entrusted to protect and encourage the VALUES of the ABC — that it remains a truly INDEPENDENT media organisation for ALL Australians. But yet, the organisation has excluded so many of us.

The ABC claims to treat its audiences with consideration and dignity. This has not been the case. On many occasions those callers or guests that have suggested an honest 9/11 debate have been called disparaging names.

After Dr Karl laughed mockingly one morning at 9/11 conspiracy nuts, I put forward a challenge  to him (on Gumshoe), to explain the free-fall of Building 7 — from office furnishing fires. He declined of course, as the building’s demise is IMPOSSIBLE to explain if you do not except demolition.

The ABC also claims to embrace diversity (of ideas) — but that too is untrue.

As the person who manages ABC for us, you are to act with INTEGRITY — and there is the presumption that you will act with “trustworthiness, honesty and fairness.” 

The ABC has a budget of $1.22 billion a year ($1,220,000,000) compared to Gumshoe’s near zero. And yet, I conservatively guess Gumshoe’s content and analysis of 9/11 (and other important topics) would resonate with at least 10 to 15% of Australians — even in this climate where honest reportage of the 9/11 event has been suppressed. This imbalance should be addressed.

I applaud some of the reporting from the ABC (e.g., on Adani, refugees or abattoirs), but the organisation becomes dishonest and untrustworthy when it will not investigate the big lies like the 9/11 false flag.

Many Australians have had enough of ABC’s smooching, and would prefer to be slapped with the truth.

  1. Dee ,
    yes 911 is the reason why teenagers are sent overseas to murder for banksters wars . All media is complicit otherwise they lose their jobs or worse . This is a communist state . Any suspect guilty before or if found innocent . Mass immigration and globalisation taking all jobs , unless one is connected .

    • I think we can leave communism, capitalism and the rest of the ism’s out in this discussion because thats just division and distraction.
      What went on and is still going on with 911 and all that stems from it is tyrrany, tyrrany and nothing but tyrrany.
      Surely there is no suggestion here is there, that one political party among them all is immune to corruption, more corruption and inevitable tyrrany?

      • Kevin ,
        Agree all ism’s have been created to divide us (essentially they are all the same) . But the rapid enforcement of the surveillance police state , here and elsewhere , is the communist manifesto .

  2. Together with Gumshoe News there are websites also questioning what we believe to be true. A belief can be true but not necessarily. It will always remain a belief until it is verified to be true or likely to be true.

    To suspend ones belief, live a little in uncertainty, means to not be pre-resolved on issues and thereby be free to consider things like, do atomic bombs exist? Do nuclear power stations produce electricity from nuclear reactions? https://www.big-lies.org/

    What was that Gladio stuff about, strategy of tension.

    So to sum up, the money power are creating fear, uncertainty and doubt to control the masses.

    Did they go to the moon? If they did develop the technology why do we not use it.

    If the US had nuclear bombs why use other weapons? If nuclear power stations produce abundant cheap power why have other power generation?

    The truth is always found in nature.

    • Being flippant …

      “Did they go to the moon? If they did develop the technology why do we not use it?”

      I’ll hand over to “Dr” Don Pettit (NASA Astronaut) to speak to that question…

      “I’d go the moon in a nanosecond.
      The problem is we don’t have the technology to do that anymore.
      We used to but we ... aah ... destroyed that technology and ... aah ... it’s a painful process to build it back again.“

      from around 9:41 here (the look on his face is priceless):

      One comment made me chuckle:
      • How can America go to the moon again?
      • Stanley Kubrick is dead

  3. What needs to be, first & foremost, kept in mind, is that when those-who-cannot-be -named finally wake up to the fact that no amount of dissing is going to make 9/11 truthers disappear, some sort of counterfeit version is bound to show up: That’s what happened with “Christianity”, I saw the same phenomena unfold before my very own eyes re home-ed, and as everyone knows, the same crew is currently in the process of likewise sabotaging “gay rights”.

  4. Looks like Minnie me , our enelected Goldman Sachs banker pm , is being groomed to be dictator of the new China downunder . Today nations and flags are a diversion . The agenda is global one world order . That black armoured tank , behind Malcolm yesterday , is ubiquitous here the Americas Asia and Europe . It is the steel capped boot in our face by the global police state .

  5. Dear Dee,
    May i inquire?
    Was your open letter copied to the ABC board?
    If not, perhaps a follow up to the board may be appropiate, seeking a reply.
    After all, it is ‘our’ ABC and we pay for their existence, surely they can consider and provide a competent reply.
    Perhaps they may explain why we still pay for Faine and his crew, as a example.
    In private enterprise; employees, the CEO and the board are held responsible for the common law tort of deceit.

  6. Can anyone explain, or have any theories on the 16 year silence / collaboration of the ‘Anti Capitalist’ , Socialist and Anarchist publications on this issue ?
