Time to boycott Starbucks? CEO Declares Support For Hillary Clinton


Howard Schultz, the founder and CEO of Starbucks, announces support for US Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton.

In an interview with CNN, Schultz let slip which way he was voting, saying, “I’m hopeful that after the election – and hopefully Hillary Clinton will be elected president – that we will begin to see a level of unity and people coming together.”

When asked if he had officially backed Clinton (pictured below) with that statement, the CEO responded “I guess I just did. I think it’s obvious Hillary Clinton needs to be the next president.”

Schultz, 63, is known to be politically vocal especially as a corporate leader.

Starbucks, which has over 22,500 coffee stores, is one of the companies anti-Israel activists boycott.

According to inminds.co.uk, it details various examples of Schultz supposed loyalty to Israel. The website says he was even given an award for being a Zionis.

“In 1998 he was honored by the…

Time to boycott Starbucks? CEO Declares Support For Hillary Clinton





EDITOR’S NOTE: Remember a few weeks ago when Donald Trump said that President Obama and then Secretary of State Crooked Hillary “founded and funded” ISIS? Remember how the liberal media mocked him for that? Today we find that the new ISIS military commander, Gulmurod Khalimov. was trained by the Obama State Department. Trump right yet again!

He replaces former ISIS commander Tarkhan Batirashvili, aka Umar al-Shishani, who was also trained by the United States as part of the Georgian army and who ISIS claimed was killed fighting in Iraq this past July.




The Pentagon Renovations Completed on 9/11/2001

A year’s work finally finished. Dan Fraunfelter counted himself lucky when he landed a job working on the first phase of the massive Pentagon renovation project. When the military complex was originally built, it was constructed in five, chevron-shaped wedges. Each chevron, more than 1 million square feet in size, accommodating roughly 5,000 workers, was designed as a stand-alone building with its own separate utility system. The unique design was meant to make the entire complex stronger (if one section of the building was suddenly disabled, the others could function regularly without disruption.)

But it also lent itself particularly well to renovation. Even though the Pentagon is massive—larger than three Empire State Buildings, the face on each of the five sides slightly longer than three football fields— the wedge construction allowed engineers to remake the building one, easy-to-close-off section at a time. Contractors could simply move workers, seal off a wedge, and install new features like reinforced steel columns and two-inch-thick blast-resistant windows. Fraunfelter, a 24-year-old who studies architecture part time at Northern Virginia Community College, had long been fascinated by the Pentagon. When his firm, Amec Construction, won the general contract for Wedge 1, he plunged into the job eagerly, anxious to explore every square inch of the physical structure.

On Sept. 11, the contract officially complete, Fraunfelter was finishing up a few last punch-list items. He arrived on-site at 7 a.m. to prepare for an 8 a.m. tenant meeting. It was a routine job-completion task, a meeting where tenants handed over a list of final fix-it items: touch-up painting, leaking pipes, etc. [MSNBC]

American Airlines Flight 77 struck the portion of the building that had already been renovated. It was the only area of the Pentagon with a sprinkler system, and it had been reconstructed with a web of steel columns and bars to withstand bomb blasts. The steel reinforcement, bolted together to form a continuous structure through all of the Pentagon’s five floors, kept that section of the building from collapsing for 30 minutes–enough time for hundreds of people to crawl out to safety.

The area struck by the plane also had blast-resistant windows–2 inches thick and 2,500 pounds each–that stayed intact during the crash and fire. It had fire doors that opened automatically and newly built exits that allowed people to get out.

“This was a terrible tragedy, but I’m here to tell you that if we had not undertaken these efforts in the building, this could have been much, much worse,” Evey said. “The fact that they happened to hit an area that we had built so sturdily was a wonderful gift.”

The rest of the Pentagon would not have fared as well.

The fire that swept through the building caused the greatest damage in an unrenovated section with no sprinkler system, heavy windows or steel reinforcements. But many of the offices there were empty in anticipation of the renovation.

While perhaps 4,500 people normally would have been working in the hardest-hit areas, because of the renovation work only about 800 were there Tuesday, officials said. [LATimes]

Most of Marine Aviation had just the weekend before been moved to the “Butler building,” an extension of the Pentagon and about 200 yards from where the impact occurred, not nearly as close as their previous offices. [mca-marines.org]

Normally 5000 people work in [wedge 2], but by September 11 renovation of this second wedge was underway. Three months earlier most of the 5000 employees who work in wedge 2 were relocated to temporary offices elsewhere.

KING: Michael, the Pentagon was kind of lucky in a sense, wasn’t it?


KING: The side they hit wasn’t that populated and it didn’t make a direct, full — like top of the Pentagon hit, right?

FLOCCO: Correct. Also, the other contributing factors — fewer engines — was the fact that it hit initially on the newly renovated section that had (UNINTELLIGIBLE) wire inside of — able to withstand more of an impact.

Plus, some of the columns and the windows had previously been reinforced for the first phase of the renovation. It was a five-phase renovation program. The first phase had just been completed only a week before. And where the plane hit was under restructured, reinforced part of it. So initially, it hit a very solid part and then, glanced off of that and went into the old section that had just been evacuated for phase two renovation. Had it hit anywhere else, it could have been catastrophic. [CNN]

WTC Fire-Proofing – Cover for Conspiracy?

Kevin Ryan, formerly of UL, made a post back in January of 2008 at 9/11 Blogger showing that the floors of the WTC that had the fire-proofing upgraded, matched almost exactly to the floors that were impacted and failed in both towers:


It now turns out the company that did those upgrades is Turner Construction company.


Turner Construction Company also helped plan and oversee the demolition of the Seattle Kingdome in 2000:


Turner Construction Company also occupied the 38th floor of WTC 1:


Turner Construction Company particpated in the collection and disposal of the steel wreckage of the WTC towers following September 11, 2001:


The CEO of Turner Construction Company from 1999-2006 was Tom Leppert. He then became mayor of Dallas, Texas:


President George W. Bush appointed Dallas Mayor Tom Leppert to the President’s Commission on White House Fellows:


Now that George W. Bush has moved out of the White House, he lives in Dallas, Texas about a mile away from Tom Leppert.

Aidan credits (and I concur) Kevin Ryan & James Gourley:

Without Kevin Ryan’s discovery of the remarkable relationship between the common re-fireproofed floors, aircraft impact floors and failure floors, one might not have considered the role that this contract work may or may not have played in the WTCs demise.

And without James Gourley’s willingness to provide substantial payment for access to the referred-to NIST records, the potential leads contained within these records might not be known.

With continued research and investigation, the truth will continue to emerge.

– EDIT TO ADD – In case it hasn’t “clicked” in peoples’ minds, alleged plane impact at the Pentagon in the area being upgraded. Both towers had impacts of planes in the areas that had fireproofing upgraded. What are the odds?

Larry Silverstein, WTC 7, and the 9/11 Demolition



In the documentary “America Rebuilds”, aired September 2002,  Larry Silverstein, the controller of the destroyed WTC complex, makes the following statement;
“I remember getting a call from the, er, fire department commander, telling me that they were not sure they were gonna be able to contain the fire, and I said, ‘We’ve had such terrible loss of life, maybe the smartest thing to do is pull it.’ And they made that decision to pull and we watched the building collapse.”

In 2005 a spokesman for Silverstein Properties stated “pull it” referred to withdrawing firefighters from WTC 7, but this statement does not withstand scrutiny.


The building fire alarm system [for WTC 7] was placed on TEST for a period of 8 h beginning at 6:47:03 a.m. on September 11, 2001. Ordinarily, this is requested when maintenance or other testing is being performed on the system, so that any alarms that are received from the system are considered the result of the maintenance or testing and are ignored. [NIST]

After the initial blast [Flight 11 hitting WTC 1], Housing Authority worker Barry Jennings, 46, reported to a command center on the 23rd floor of 7 World Trade Center. He was with Michael Hess, the city’s corporation counsel, when they felt and heard another explosion. First calling for help, they scrambled downstairs to the lobby, or what was left of it. “I looked around, the lobby was gone. It looked like hell,” Jennings said. [Traverse City Record Eagle 9/11/2001]


“That building right there, the brown building, the tall one, is number 7 World Trade Center.”
“We’ve heard several reports from several different officers now that that is the building that is going to go down next.”

“In fact one officer told me they’re just waiting for that to come down at this point.”



The heat from the uncontrolled fires caused steel floor beams and girders to thermally expand, leading to a chain of events that caused a key structural column to fail. The failure of this structural column then initiated a fire-induced progressive collapse of the entire building. [NIST]



Videos & Full Details
of the Controlled Collapse of
World Trade Center 7


Consider the facts:

  • The fires in WTC 7 were not evenly distributed, so a perfect collapse was impossible.
  • Heavy duty explosives were in the building.
  • Silverstein spoke to his insurance carrier about demolishing the building.
  • Silverstein said to the fire department commander “the smartest thing to do is pull it.”
  • Firefighters withdrawing from the area stated the building was going to “blow up”.
  • News media outlets had foreknowledge of the collapse.
  • An explosion can be heard prior to the building’s penthouse collapse.
  • Cutter charges can be heard immediately before the collapse.
  • The building collapsed perfectly into its footprint at freefall speed.

Sometimes … a building is surrounded by structures that must be preserved. In this case, the blasters proceed with a true implosion, demolishing the building so that it collapses straight down into its own footprint (the total area at the base of the building). This feat requires such skill that only a handful of demolition companies in the world will attempt it. [HowStuffWorks]

Are you kidding me?

There can be only one conclusion as to what happened to WTC 7 – it was demolished.

When and why was the building rigged for demolition?

Moreover, why does the heat signature of the twin towers’ wreckage match that of WTC 7?
