U.S. Power Elite 101 By Professor Domhoff – With Charts, Explanations And Stuff.

By Jerry Alatalo

Political Sociologist G. William Domhoff speaks on November 18, 2017

“If you do not specify and confront real issues, what you say will surely obscure them. If you do not alarm anyone morally, you yourself remain morally asleep. If you do not embody controversy, what you say will be an acceptance of the drift of the coming human hell.”

– C. WRIGHT MILLS (1916-1962) American sociologist

fter listening to a powerful 1969 public address by Political Sociology Professor G. William Domhoff posted at Our Hidden History channel on YouTube, we found the following 2017 keynote presentation by Professor Domhoff, nearly 50 years later, to be of great interest and thus worth sharing with others.

Professor Domhoff was the keynote presenter at the Annual Meeting of the California Sociological Association held in Sacramento on November 18, 2017. Given the historical trends which have occurred since 1969 where the Vietnam War saw the unnecessary and tragic perishing of millions of innocent Vietnamese and near sixty thousand Americans, it appears the distinctly powerful messages of political sociologists like Professor Domhoff have yet to fully reach mass consciousness, evidenced by similar tragedies reported as current events as of late-2019.

Without going into a lengthy description of today’s Vietnam-like tragedies occurring around the Earth, and keeping in mind the internet rules against being overly weighted down with information which busy people tend to reject in favor of rapid-fire shorts bursts of news/analysis, we would point out some of the situations around the world related to the continuum of academic thought in the Political Sociology field by Professor Domhoff from 1969-today.

The Power Elite are involved in dramatically and rapidly evolving societal demand for positive change actions in what seems – to the stunned deer-in-headlights observers as is this writer – like every nation on the planet. As more people become aware of the “rubber meets the road” facts and details surrounding neoliberalism, the focus of 50-years of academic work by Political Sociologist G. William Domhoff, the Elite are becoming faced with more and more strenuous challenges to their attempts at maintaining world-record imbalanced status quo power.

The familiar phrase “wars and rumors of wars” remains the primary source of stress for many who’ve made the sometimes regrettable choice of pursuing greater awareness of world affairs, particularly the kind of awareness suppressed, deformed or omitted by corrupt business magnates, government officials and Elite corporate media titans.

The #1 challenge for peace activists around the Earth is building walls sufficiently strong enough to prevent any more outbreaks of war, and to end already ongoing deadly conflicts, whether it is in the Middle East, South America, Africa, or elsewhere.

Perhaps in the future – when civilization has long since abolished criminally insane, suicidal, unnecessary, catastrophic war on the human family – Professor Domhoff himself along with his like-minded colleagues, or later on by future generations, will find ultimate relief in finding his/their decades of effort have turned out successful.

We’ll stop and let vital knowledge foundation-building academic messenger Professor G. William Domhoff speak for himself.

Peace.

Mr. Project Due Diligence Goes To Washington.

By Jerry Alatalo

“But life is short and truth works far and lives long: Let us speak the truth.”

– ARTHUR SCHOPENHAUER (1788-1860) German philosopher

Mr. Project Due Diligence Goes To Washington.

hank you to Roland Angle and Casey Pfeiffer for your immensely important efforts as leaders of “Project Due Diligence”. It was absolutely astonishing to hear Mr. Pfeiffer describe how 2/3 of a group of Civil engineering professionals (repeat: Civil Engineering PROS!) had no idea – after more than 18 years since September 11, 2001 – that Building 7 even existed, much less that Building 7 collapsed due to controlled demolition! It is now abundantly clear the immeasurably destructive 9/11 BIG LIE must become 100% exposed, then destroyed – as SOON as humanly possible.

Since September 11, 2001, wars have devastated untold millions of innocent lives from Afghanistan to Iraq, Libya, Syria, and Yemen directly – while the peoples of Venezuela, Iran, Bolivia and other nations are threatened with economic/financial warfare, legal war or “lawfare” – or so-called “kinetic” traditional war using bullets, bombs, missiles, and so forth.

Solving 9/11 represents arguably the sole remaining pathway and chance for humanity to prevent, avert or otherwise stop any process toward the next major global military conflagration, – and one more inevitably regretted, universally-mourned and unnecessary catastrophe.

Please share the information widely. Thank you.

In Case You And Everyone Else On Earth Missed It.

Why is this not the #1 reported and talked about story on Earth?

World Trade Center Building 7 – moments before the 47-story skyscraper collapsed into its own footprint on September 11, 2001.

Four Hours Toward World Peace.

“If we are not able to prevent a third world war, we shall go down in history – if history should survive – as the guilty generation, the generation which did nothing to prevent the annihilation of mankind itself.”

– U THANT (1909-1974) Burmese Secretary General, United Nations

Reverend Audette Fulbright started the powerful 9/11 Memorial in New York City with a prayer. (September 7, 2019)

he four-hour 9/11 Memorial event in New York City on Saturday September 7, 2019 will become remembered, forever, – as the precise turning point where humanity shifted in maximally powerful, unstoppable fashion toward creating, for the first time, true peace on Earth.

Some will perceive such a statement as overly dramatic and/or drenched with hyperbole based on impractical wishful thinking, perhaps even telling themselves such a sentiment is total nonsense. Some will, depending on their base of knowledge regarding events which occurred on September 11, 2001, understand that finally revealing the truth does indeed offer a genuine chance of a better (read: more peaceful) future for the human race.

Why is this a valid stance? Because the broadest perception of 9/11 Truth and Justice become manifest and part of universally-recognized Earthly reality is this: such an end represents arguably the greatest moral confession of war criminality in the history of the world.

The names and ages of 412 firefighters, police officers, first responders and volunteers killed on 9/11 were read at the September 7 Memorial event. In a solemn centuries-old deep spiritual tradition, a tribute in memory to the fallen heroes took place with the “Pipe and Drums”.

One might suggest that those in the cynical camp have little to no awareness of facts and circumstances associated with the 9/11 event. One might further suggest, specifically to the doubting and uninformed group, taking four hours of their time to learn about the event – by watching and studying the video (below) of the New York City 9/11 Memorial observed on September 7.

The Memorial’s host and major facilitator, Lawyers’ Committee for 9/11 Inquiry, provided the following biographical information about the event’s invited speakers:

David R. Meiswinkle, Esq. President, is a criminal defense attorney, retired police officer of 23 years, and former U.S. Army veteran.

David founded the New Brunswick Taxpayers and Tenants Association and the New Brunswick Reporter, a community newspaper. His activism and articles outlining municipal corruption brought federal authorities into New Brunswick New Jersey which led to major criminal investigations,and arrests, indictments and convictions of prominent local politicians.

After leaving New Brunswick, David served as Secretary of the New Jersey Reform Party and was a national delegate to the Reform Party convention in Long Beach, CA., and body guard for Patrick Buchanan when he campaigned in New Jersey.

David was an independent for Governor against Chris Christie in 2009 with the designation “Middle Class Empowerment”. He also ran as an independent candidate candidate for Congress against Chris Smith in 2010 with the designation, “American Renaissance Movement.

David is founder and President of New Jersey 9/11 Aware, a non-profit organization founded in order to educate the public of the need for a new unbiased investigation.

David is co- host of Quantum Matrix Radio and co-founder of Quantum Matrix Alternative Media, LLC

Mr. Meiswinkle is also a Board of Director member of Lawyers Committee For 9/11 Inquiry and was a panelist at the unprecedented 9/11 Justice in Focus Conference.

He holds a B.A. from Rutgers College, a M.A. from New York University, and a J.D. from Seton Hall University Law School.

New York Area Fire Commissioners Make History, Call for New 9/11 Investigation by Ted Walter July 27, 2019

They started off by saying the Pledge of Allegiance. Ten minutes later, they were reading the text of a resolution claiming the existence of “overwhelming evidence” that “pre-planted explosives . . . caused the destruction of the three World Trade Center buildings.”

And so it was, on July 24, 2019 — nearly 18 years after the horrific attacks that traumatized a nation and changed the world forever — the Franklin Square and Munson Fire District, which oversees a volunteer fire department serving a hamlet of 30,000 residents just outside of Queens, New York, became the first legislative body in the country to officially support a new investigation into the events of 9/11.

The resolution, drafted and introduced by Commissioner Christopher Gioia, was unanimously approved by the five commissioners. Members of the audience — including the families of fallen firefighters Thomas J. Hetzel and Robert Evans, both Franklin Square natives — joined in solemn but celebratory applause after the fifth “ay” was spoken.

Conversing with guests after the meeting, Commissioner Dennis Lyons remarked on the enormous and lasting toll that 9/11 has taken on the Franklin Square community. “We have a memorial — a piece of steel from the World Trade Center with 28 holes where the nuts and bolts used to go,” Lyons explained. “Every year on the 11th, we put a rose in each hole for the 24 Nassau County firefighters and four Franklin Square residents who died on 9/11.”

Attorney Harrison is licensed in Pennsylvania and admitted to practice before the U. S. Courts of Appeal for the 3rd, 4th, 6th, 7th, 8th, 9th, 10th, 11th, District of Columbia, and Federal Circuits, as well as the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Indiana.

The official explanation of the events on and surrounding 9/11 has not been established in a court of law or by an objective and thorough investigation by either Congress or the 9/11 Commission. Our overall mission is to develop and implement a detailed legal strategy to achieve transparency and accountability under the law, regarding the unprosecuted crimes of 9/11.

In the aftermath of September 11, 2001, the Congress initiated the “Joint Inquiry” and the government eventually also created the 9/11 Commission to investigate and explain what had occurred. Almost immediately, and in the years thereafter, serious questions were raised about both the Joint House and Senate Intelligence Committees’ Inquiry and the 9/11 Commission’s version of the events surrounding 9/11. Many observers, including notably the families of the victims, criticized both inquiries for failing to address key questions.

The Lawyers’ Committee for 9/11 Inquiry, Inc. is a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization of lawyers, investigators, scientists and concerned citizens created to promote transparency and accountability regarding the tragic events of September 11, 2001.

Thank you for making the FBI Lawsuit possible – Bob McIlvaine

My Son Believed that ‘Knowledge Is Power’. Today, He Would Proudly Support Our Efforts

Dear Fellow 9/11 Truth Advocates,

Last night, we reached the fundraising goal for the FBI 9/11 Review Commission Lawsuit, of which I am proud to be a plaintiff along with AE911Truth, the Lawyers’ Committee for 9/11 Inquiry, and Barbara Krukowski-Rastelli, who lost her son, William, on 9/11.

On behalf of both organizations and Barbara, I would like to thank you for your generous donations to this most important lawsuit.

Growing up, my son Bobby had a poster on his wall that said “Knowledge Is Power.” He was an avid student who thought deeply about the social history of the U.S. and the world. His senior thesis, “Shadows Across the Snow: Blackness and the White Literary Mind,” dealt with the subtle and constant preoccupation with race in mainstream literature by white Americans. He had a tremendous ability to understand and empathize with others.

If Bobby were alive today, I know that he would proudly support the efforts of the 9/11 Truth Movement. That is because underlying everything we do for this cause is our belief that by expanding our knowledge — in particular, our knowledge of what happened on 9/11 and our knowledge of why it happened — we have the power to make the world a much better place.

Not everybody believes in the power of everyday people to change the world. But you do. I thank you for having that belief and for being part of this endeavor to uncover more about what actually took place on 9/11.

Yours truly,

Bob McIlvaine
Father of Bobby McIlvaine

Other speakers included:

Building 7 on September 11, 2001, shortly before the 47-story skyscraper collapsed straight down into its own footprint.

Richard Gage The founder of Architects and Engineers for 9/11 Truth, Mr. Gage spoke on the recently published University of Alaska-Fairbanks Building 7 study led by engineering Professor Leroy Hulsey, which concluded – contrary to the report on Building 7 by the National Institute of Science and Technology (NIST) – that fires did not bring down the 47-story structure on 9/11.

Millions of men and women around the world recognize Building 7 as the “9/11 smoking gun”.

Ansgar Schneider A mathematician/physicist from Germany, Mr. Schneider shared his research into the collapse of The North Tower on 9/11, concluding that additional as-yet-unidentified factors are the explanation for aspects of the collapse, but this was not investigated by the 9/11 Commission.

Kirk Wiebe A National Security Agency (NSA) whistleblower, Mr. Wiebe discussed his experience as a high-level technology expert with the NSA of his superiors’ rejection of a $1.9 million software program which could likely have prevented 9/11.

Rachel Hughes As a 9/11 First Responder, Ms. Hughes discussed her long, difficult series of health problems associated with toxic dust around the 9/11 destruction area, and her efforts to help others similarly stricken with extremely challenging medical conditions, due to their close proximity to the World Trade Center rescue sites.

Much more could be said here about this truly historic event. We would just ask readers to consider sharing the 4-hour video with all of your family, friends, associates, your local fire and police departments, email contacts, media, etc.. In other words, please do what you can to share this profoundly important information with as much of humanity on Earth as possible, for the obvious reasons. Thank you.
