“Worst Structural Failure in Modern History” vs. “Fire Protection Industry”: Live in Las Vegas!
'A Force to be Reckoned With' at the National Fire Protection Association Convention in Las Vegas - PAPA Reels in 283 Requests for Email Follow-up With Film "Calling Out Bravo 7"!
We did it in Boston. Now we’ve done it in Las Vegas:
This was our second year of bringing three days of “the worst structural failure in modern history”—the “Solomon Brothers Building”, to the heart of the Fire Protection Industry. The dark truth of Building 7 has been used to bring light to several hundred fire protection engineers, fire fighters, fire officials, and other fire industry professionals.
During the 10 hours that we operated our WTC 7 evidence booth, at least a thousand passed in front of the booth, watching Building 7 drop suddenly symmetrically into it’s own footprint, in under 7 seconds. At least 500 stopped (or were stopped by the more aggressive among us) to enquire about the remarkable video on the TV monitor. And 283 signed up for our email list—anticipating the free video Calling Out Bravo 7 made by firefighters, for firefighters.
We exposed NIST fraud (the National Institute of Standards and Technology) six ways from Sunday to these who know that never in the history of high-rises have we lost a steel-framed fire-protected high-rise to normal office fires:
· We showed them the few, small, and scattered fires in the building.
· We showed them that there have been much hotter, longer lasting, and hotter fires in these types of buildings that have never collapsed.
· We showed them the sudden, symmetrical, free-fall collapse of the building.
· We showed them the remarkable collapse - identical to controlled demolition – like the old hotels “here in Las Vegas”.
· We showed them the politically influenced 1,000 page NIST report that took seven years “getting a handle on Building 7.”
· And, for those that showed some open-mindedness we pointed out NIST’s omission of several witnesses of explosions before the collapse.
· And, only for the same group, we showed them forensic evidence of thermite incendiaries found by the US Geological Survey and by FEMA - all of which was equally censored from the NIST report.
Most of the attendees were completely unaware that a third tower collapsed on 9/11! This was pegged by NIST to be a collapse by normal office fires. It should have been the most studied structural failure ever!
But some were quite aware of Building 7 and even shared info with us that we didn’t know. Such as that the contracts for steel and debris hauling deployment were made a year in advance! But a 25-year non-disclosure agreement was signed. That NDA is up in 2.5 years — and then “Joseph” will speak to us publicly.
We met with 2 NFPA board members who were quite open-minded and discussed the issues without hesitancy and agreed that there is obviously more to this discussion. One of them gave me his personal phone number and email. We will send him the Ed Asner-narrated 15-minute video Solving the Mystery of World Trade Center Building 7 and Calling Out Bravo 7. We also met with the “overseer” of NFPA 1700 the Guide for Structural Fire Fighting who was quite willing to speak with us.
On the other hand, we had one older gentlemen who scurried by yelling out "You're attacking us!". Actually, we're on the side of the NFPA! But he was gone.
Another guy came right up to me with his elbows covering his name-tag saying aggressively "what's your angle?!" I got about 4 words out and he interrupted me..."No, what's your angle?!" I said "I'm telling you! Why don't you give me 15 seconds so I can finish telling you?!" He was belligerent and combative and really triggered me. I rarely get angry but I became louder and more aggressive then he was. And that is not like me. But I secretly enjoyed it. I mean he really deserved it. But I am better then that. Next time.
Most of the people that we succeeded in stopping were quite open minded. About 20 of them were already red-pilled before they even arrived - and we interviewed a couple of them. Boy it was quite a relief to run into those guys! Made all the self-doubting go away in an instant!
We didn't take any breaks. It was a constant, “Did you know about the worst structural failure in modern history?” And, depending on the speed of their travel past the booth, that's often the most we could get out. Then, if we had a few more seconds, its, "NIST claimed it came down by normal office fires... but what do you think?" They don't respond. I add, "but we've never lost a steel-framed fire-protected high-rise, ever, even though we have all of these much hotter, larger, and longer-lasting fires in these buildings!"
At this point we’ve got their attention, and add, "That's a huge problem for the NFPA because they wrote the standards for fighting fires in high-rises [pointing to the book written by Fire Captain Raul Angulo of the Seattle Fire Dept, and sponsored by the NFPA]. These guidelines send firefighters like Erik and Dale [pointing to them] into buildings like that [pointing to WTC 7 coming down on the TV over and over again] to put out fires like that [pointing to the small WTC 7 fires] and even fires like that [pointing to the big banner with huge fires in 7 high-rises]. “Does anyone see a problem here?!”
NIST spent 7 years and 1,000 pages on this politically influenced building report to draw an unprecedented conclusion that will, now, likely cause firefighters to hesitate from going into burning buildings to save lives, as happened in the Grenfell Tower in London, because now they think that the building could come down on top of them!
“So, the NFPA must investigate the NIST investigation.”
“Would you like to be kept in the loop of this ongoing dialog between these two conflicting institutions?” - “and also receive an important video on the Soloman Brothers building collapse by email?" 70% of them say yes. Then we scan their badge with our iPhone app !
It is a $10K investment to make this outreach! And YOU raised it to send the PAPA Dream Team to Vegas! The cost for the booth and its required accessories alone came to $6.5K! Then we add the flight costs and hotel and the feeding of the volunteers. A huge thanks to our up front donors, Sue, Al, and Gene from Boston 9/11 Truth for raising the bulk of the hefty price tag for this critical outreach work!
Tell us in the comments: Do YOU want the PAPA dream team to once again go to next year’s NFPA Convention? It’s in Orlando, FL - June 2024. Let us know!
And if your answer is a resounding “Yes!” then you can step forward now with your dedicated donation to sending the PAPA Dream Team to Orlando in June 2024!
