Denver and Boulder Meetings: David Ray Griffin: “9/11: Why Do Bill Moyers and Robert Parry Accept Miracles?” Grand Junction: “Gasland”: February 2012

This month Colorado 9/11 Visibility is proud to present Dr. David Ray Griffin’s brilliant challenge to the progressive media:  9/11: Why Do Bill Moyers and Robert Parry Accept Miracles? (1 hour, 15 minutes)

Hosted by philosopher, educator, activist, and author Dr. Richard Curtis, Professor Griffin explores at Town Hall in Seattle why some of the best independent journalists in America accept without question the official conspiracy theories put forth by the 9/11 Commission and NIST (National Institute of Standards and Technology) in their investigations of the tragic events of September 11, 2001.
Using Bill Moyers and Robert Parry as examples of journalists who have previously demonstrated notable courage, objectivity, and a willingness to examine crucial events in depth, rather than simply accepting a single-minded source, Dr. Griffin challenges their current disregard of the overwhelming scientific evidence uncovered by the growing number of professionals openly supporting the 9/11 Truth Movement and calling for a proper investigation.

Dr. Griffin explains how careful examination of the official conspiracy theories regarding the unprecedented collapse of the three tallest World Trade Center buildings reveals contradictions and violations of the laws of physics, which he rightly points out as being impossible, and therefore would require “miracles” to achieve, unless carried out by the use of explosive, controlled demolition techniques.

Please join us and bring a friend!  This is an excellent film for your friends who are new to this issue as well as for those who are informed yet perplexed by the reaction of some of our media’s best journalists.

Bio: Dr. David Ray Griffin, Emeritus Professor of Theology and Philosophy of Religion at Claremont School of Theology and Claremont Graduate University, is one of the world’s most influential proponents of the 9/11 Truth Movement and author of 11 books questioning the official accounts of the events of September 11, 2001.

Denver, Boulder, and Grand Junction Monthly Meetings: “GASLAND: Can You Light Your Water on Fire?” Jan./Feb. 2012

Please note that in Denver we will begin at 6:45 PM.

We will present two films this month.

First, in honor of “Occupy the Courts Day,” organized around the nation by Move to Amend, we will show the 15-minute documentary, A Question of Integrity: Politics, Ethics, and the Supreme Court.  (Be sure to join the OTC rally and march in Denver, which will begin at 10:30 AM, Friday, January 20, on the west steps of the Capitol.)

Narrated by actor, director, and activist Edward James Olmos, this film examines the growing concerns about ethically questionable and overtly political behavior exhibited by some Supreme Court justices and explores the need to apply the same ethical standards that govern all other judges in the federal court system as well as those seated on our nation’s highest court.  For example, Justices Scalia and Thomas allegedly attended a closed-door retreat hosted by Koch Industries, a corporation that supported and benefited from the Citizen United’s decision, which recently dismantled campaign finance laws.

Second, we will show the acclaimed film Gasland (1 hour 40 minutes), which premiered at the 2010 Sundance Film Festival and was awarded the “Special Jury Prize Documentary.”  This film exposes the devastating environmental effects of horizontal hydraulic fracturing, commonly called “fracking,” a means of tapping shale deposits containing natural gas that were previously inaccessible by conventional drilling techniques used by the oil and gas industry.

Coloradans have become increasingly concerned as the use of fracking has expanded along the Front Range, with thousands of wells planned for areas surrounding the cities of Denver, Longmont, and Colorado Springs, as well as within some of our state parks.

Why the concern?  This is what Gasland makes abundantly clear: [Read more…]
