I've been given permission to post Senator Johnson's speech to the Arizona Legislators in it's entirety.
9/11 Floor Speech
MR. PRESIDENT – POINT OF PERSONAL PRIVILEGE.
INTRODUCTION OF GUESTS IN THE GALLERY … and then I WOULD LIKE TO REQUEST THAT MY REMARKS OF MORE THAN 200 WORDS BE ENTERED INTO THE JOURNAL.
Members -- I would like to introduce a very special guest who has been joined today by several of his closest friends. Up in the gallery, we have
many of the members of the Phoenix 9/11 Truth group – people who are asking for a new, independent investigation of the attacks of Sept. 11, 2001.
In particular, I would like to introduce to you a VERY courageous man named Blair Gadsby. I’m going to ask the folks with Blair to help him to
stand as I tell you a little about him. Blair is very weak because he has been fasting for more than two weeks to try to bring attention to the cause
of 9/11 Truth. This is the 16th day that Blair has gone without food and spent his day outside the office of U.S. Senator John McCain pleading with
the senator to take a look at new evidence in the 9/11 crimes. We have one man who is sacrificing his own personal needs and desires to stand boldly
pleading for the world to take notice, to question, to research and not place their lives into the hands of media sound-bites, - to think for
themselves, consciously and critically. Blair is an educator and to me this is what the great educators do. Thousands of people all over the country
and actually around the world have been watching on the internet as this Hunger Strike progresses here in Phoenix. I want Blair to know that I am his
biggest fan and that good people everywhere admire him for his courage and determine. Please give a warm welcome to Blair Gadsby and the Phoenix 9/11
Truth movement. (STOP)
(FLOOR SPEECH) Last month, I started speaking publicly regarding my concerns about the attacks of Sept. 11, 2001, which brought down the Twin Towers
of the World Trade Center, as well as Building 7. If you’ve watched the media coverage since I first began to speak out, you know how vicious and
irrational it has been toward me. The media have worked hard to try to make it seem silly to even question the 9/11 Commission Report, even though
some of its own authors have done so, including both of the Commission Co-Chairmen – Mr. Hamilton and Keane.
Actually, the 9/11 Commission Report represents just one theory – the theory that fire and the damage from the airplane impacts brought down the
three buildings. This theory explains none of the features of the destruction that we all witnessed that day and which we can still observe on
hundreds of videos. It explains nothing about how in four out of four cases, no hijacking code was transmitted by the hijacked airliners, and in four
of four cases, no fighter jets managed to get alongside any of the hijacked airliners. The military officers who lied to Congress about their failure
to protect America would have been referred for prosecution by some of the 9/11 Commissioners, but those Commissioners were told that they did not
have that authority. The events of that day were a heinous crime against our nation and our citizens, and the sense of justice that exists in each
one of us demands to know what really happened and how all the perpetrators will be caught and punished. The speculation and theorizing won’t end
until a thorough, transparent investigation, free of conflicts of interest, takes place.
Among the many theories that you can find on the Internet is one that rises above all the rest. It is rock-solid, confirmed by hard evidence, and
supported by hundreds of scholars, architects, engineers and other professionals who have the education, training, and expertise to know what
they’re talking about. This is the theory that explosive demolitions brought down the Twin Towers and Building 7. (see next post for part II)
