Summary, April Gallop's claim of conspiracies are so frivolous that the court has not only turned down her appeal but has also ordered her and her attorney's to pay twice court cost.
As in United States v. Potamkin Cadillac Corp., 689 F.2d 379 (2d Cir. 1982), this appeal
was an unnecessary imposition “on the government which is forced to defend against the
appeal and on the taxpayers who must pay for that defense.” Id. at 382. Accordingly,
Gallop and her counsel are hereby ordered to show cause in writing within thirty days from
the date of entry of this order why they should not pay double costs and damages in the
amount of $15,000, for which they would be jointly and severally liable, under Rule 38, 28
U.S.C. ' 1927, and the inherent power of this Court.
After a de novo review, we have no hesitation in concluding that the District Court
correctly determined that the few conceivably “well-pleaded” facts in Gallop’s complaint are
No mention of what these well pleaded, oh wait, sorry, "well-pleaded" facts were, all you need to know is they were frivolous.
It is looking like it will be in the hands of the people if this is ever to get resolved.
+ Defendant Cheney was the top government official present in Washington at the time of the attacks, the president himself being on a ‘photo-op’ junket to a 2nd grade classroom in Florida; and defendants Rumsfeld and Myers were the top commanders of the military, and particularly the U.S. Air Force; and of the Pentagon and its defenses. They had the highest-level duties of command, and of responsibility for the safety, welfare and protection of their subordinates, including plaintiffs.
+ The Air Force was alerted to the wayward planes in plenty of time to intercept all of them under normal procedures, as shown in published FAA records and elsewhere; but—despite a regular, weekly practice of launching fighter jets to check in-flight airline emergencies—the interceptors never showed up.
+ FAA Flight controllers put out alerts that Flight 77 was off course as much as 30-40 minutes before it supposedly crashed into the Pentagon, and defendant Cheney just now, in May 2009, publicly affirmed that, stationed in the presidential command bunker below the White House, he knew well in advance that it was headed back towards Washington, where it supposedly crashed at 9:38 (or possibly 9:32). The White House was evacuated, but no warning was given at the Pentagon, and no evacuation took place. Instead this powerfully defended building was hit, or blew up, or both, and plaintiffs were injured, and no official question has been raised as to why they were not warned.
+ Cheney, in the bunker around that same time, well before the Pentagon was hit, gave or re-affirmed some form of stand-down order, about which then-Transportation Secretary Norman Mineta testified before the 9/11 Commission; but the Commission, in furtherance of the cover-up, ignored his evidence. Instead, the Commission Report maintains that Cheney did not even reach the bunker until just before 10:00. Just last
month (May, 2009), however, in a public speech before the American Enterprise Institute, Cheney confirmed that he was in fact already in the bunker when word came that an unknown plane, possibly also hijacked (where Flight 77 was supposedly lost), was headed towards Washington. Although the exact time---as well as undoubted real-time radar awareness---is disputed, the military concedes it had knowledge, and an active “phone bridge” with FAA , well before 9:24 am., the “official” time notice about Flight 77 was supposedly given. He said he was there when the word was given, certainly by that time at least (though we would say he arrived earlier), and that he knew the third plane had turned around and was headed back towards the capital, at or before the time Secretary Mineta describes him giving an apparent stand-down order. Certainly he gave the lie to the Commission’s preposterous claims that the military didn’t know about Flight 77 until it hit the Pentagon, and that Cheney never reached the bunker until 9:58 am.
Mr. Mineta, also in May of this year, affirmed to plaintiff’s counsel, in person, that while he prefers to let the legal process play out before discussing it, he stands by the account he gave to the 9/11 Commission. See Appendix 4, 2nd Veale Affidavit, p.6.
+ The then-chief of U.S. Counter-terrorism operations, Richard Clarke, in the account in his book, “Against All Enemies”, published shortly before the Commission Report came out in 2004, said he convened a video ‘teleconference’ with the highest circle of officials, specifically including Rumsfeld and Myers---whom he saw on the screen at the conference center in the Pentagon---at or about ten minutes after nine; i.e, a few minutes after the second tower was hit. At that point there could be no doubt that the country was under attack; so, this of course is what one would expect—and maybe expect also that the defendants would be ‘freaking out’, so to speak, at the failure of the defense system, the no-show of the interceptors, even then, even with the plane Cheney mentioned headed back at them, 20 minutes before the Pentagon was hit at least.
But, nothing happened: the wires were not burned up, the hot pilots were not scrambled and vectored to the wayward plane headed towards Washington, D.C., and possibly flown by suicide bombers; and the Commanders apparently just sat around, or
made themselves scarce; and they have never been called to account, for the lethal failure of the defenses under their command.

Actually, those are just more assertions. The military is always under the command of the commander-in-chief without regard to his or her location. Among other things.
....and defendants Rumsfeld and Myers were the top commanders of the military, and particularly the U.S. Air Force; and of the Pentagon and its defenses.

If her claims were frivolous, then dismiss it and move on.
The fact that she was forced to pay twice the court costs is an indication of prejudice against her which undoubtedly sheds the light of truth onto her side.
What they are basically saying is, because she tried to sue the government, and whenever you try and do that the government dismisses it as frivolous, then they have the right to double the court costs.
