Pay Attention, ABC: Rosie O’Donnell
Just Doubled Down on Her 9/11
Truther Conspiracy Beliefs

Newsbusters, by Scott Whitlock

Original Article

Posted By:StormCnter, 8/10/2014 1:19:42 PM

Rosie O’Donnell, the past and future co-host of The View, on Friday reaffirmed her support of the 9/11 truther conspiracy theory. When asked by this writer if she continues to reject the idea that Muslim terrorists flew planes into buildings, O’Donnell tweeted in response, “i still do not believe the official story.” [See below for a screen shot of the tweet.] O’Donnell left The View in 2007 after battling with conservative Elisabeth Hasselbeck. On March 29, 2007, she promoted trutherism, saying of September 11th: “I do believe it is the first time in history that fire has ever melted steel. I

She thinks the govt was deliberately involved in the 9/11 tragedy, yet she supports a president and party that wants to control every aspect of our lives from health care, restrictions 2nd amendment rights. If they can´t be trusted why does she want to entrust more and more to them?

The planes were carrying abut 6-7 tons jet fuel. The resulting heat caused the steel to lose rigidity. The weight from the floors above could no longer be supported. The top floors fell straight to the basement.

Elementary Rosie, for those with an IQ higher than a geranium.

To make a steel beam you melt it.
Surprising how many people do not know that.
Reminds me of my 6 year old Grandson watching me solder and said metal does not melt. Now he knows. In a fire a wood beam
lasts longer than a steel one.

good grief. How does she think steel gets into I beams, gates, vaults, ships of all kinds, bridges? This woman professes such ignorance one would think she would investigate the history of steel before opening her copious mouth.

Even the history channel has offered specials on the production of steel and all the many products derived from steel. Doesn´t she realize that high rise buildings are reinforced with steel but encase in concrete as an added strength property and as a measure against fire?

The fuel from these planes raised the temperatures to extraordinary degrees and the smashing of the building left steel exposed. Is she really that dense?

It must be difficult to live life as a fat, lesbian moron.

As a structural engineer, I understand in detail the unusual structural design of the WTC and specific, clear mechanism (local buckling) that caused the initial failure at the point of the main fires. The inner cross bracing (floors) was softened by the fires and collapsed. Once the cross bracing was gone, the exterior skin had no protection against buckling.

Once one or two stories buckled (the outer skin of the building was the primary structure) the upper floors moved as a unit, acting as a hammer driving down to destroy the lower floors. The weight of 20-30 floors of the building is thousands of tons. After that much weight has fallen a couple floors, nothing can stop it from driving all the way to the ground.

Simple demo. Put ~50 lbs of your weight on a foot on an empty pop can and have someone thump the side with a forefinger. The can will dramatically collapse, in the same sort of unstable buckling failure as the WTC. Cans filled with pressurized pop are prevented from buckling by the internal pressure, much like the floor cross bracing held the WTC skins stable, so you can do the same to a full one without failure.

Not too complex, unless you are stupid like Rosie.

Sorry for a second post but while #2 is on the right track, the correct number is about 70-75 tons of jet fuel on board each jet.

Max fuel capacity is about 82 tons, they were fueled for transcontinental range and had flown a bit, so maybe 7-10 tons down from max. The terrorists specifically selected long range flights to get max fuel loads for maximum fire damage.

This woman is an idiot several times over. Just with regard to ´the first time in history fire ever melted steel´ she´s completely nuts. There´s a photo in a woodworking textbook I have that shows the aftermath of a fire and it´s effect on steel versus laminated wooden beams. The steel I-beams are draped like spaghetti over intact laminated wooden beams. This sort of information is not hard to come by.

#16, building on your comment, The aircraft involved in the WTC strikes were a Boeing 767-200 and a Boeing 767-200ER.

According to Wikipedia, they have a full fuel capacity of 50 and 72 tons, respectively. Both were trans-continental flights, so figure 40-45 tons of fuel on each aircraft.

Anyway you look at it, it was Hell on Earth.

At the very end of Matt Bai’s New York Times Magazine feature about Gary Hart that could be titled “Hart-less: The Original Bimbo Eruption,” there’s a short passage that puts on full display the irrepressible presumption of liberalism—or perhaps it’s another example of Bush Derangement Syndrome. Here’s how the piece ends: “It’s what he could have done for this country that I think bothers him to this very day,” Lee [Hart] said. “Well, at the very least, George W. Bush wouldn’t have been president,” [Gary] Hart said ruefully. This sounded a little narcissistic, but it was, in fact, a hard premise to

With his decision to use force against the violent extremists of the Islamic State, President Obama is doing more than to knowingly enter a quagmire. He is doing more than play with the fates of two half-broken countries—Iraq and Syria—whose societies were gutted long before the Americans appeared on the horizon. Obama is stepping once again—and with understandably great reluctance—into the chaos of an entire civilization that has broken down. Arab civilization, such as we knew it, is all but gone. The Arab world today is more violent, unstable, fragmented and driven by extremism—the extremism of the rulers and those in

The 2014 November midterm elections are nearly here, and Democratic and Republican candidates across the country are bracing for the inevitable conclusion to months of campaigning. But even as certain forecast models downgrade the GOP’s chances for taking Congress’ upper chamber, several recent polls signal that Republicans will indeed walk away from November with many victories and perhaps a Senate majority. Here are the top nine polls from this week that hint at good news for the GOP: Colorado: In a Quinnipiac survey released Thursday, Rep. Cory Gardner, R-Colo., holds a 48 percent to 40 percent lead over Democratic Sen.

FOR THE sake of the cameras, President Obama assured Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko at a White House meeting Thursday that “not only do we support Ukraine’s sovereignty and independence in words, but we’ve also been supporting it in deeds.” If only that were true. The reality is that the beleaguered Ukrainian leader left Washington backed by considerable rhetoric from the Obama administration but little with which he can turn back the continuing Russian aggression against his country. In an emotional address to Congress, Mr. Poro­shenko described Ukraine as fighting for Western democratic values as well as its own survival, and he

The seven-month scandal that is threatening Roger Goodell´s future as NFL commissioner began with an unexpected phone call in the early morning hours on a Saturday in February. Just hours after running back Ray Rice knocked out his then-fiancée with a left hook at the Revel Hotel Casino in Atlantic City, New Jersey, the Baltimore Ravens´ director of security, Darren Sanders, reached an Atlantic City police officer by phone. While watching surveillance video -- shot from inside the elevator where Rice´s punch knocked his fiancée unconscious -- the officer, who told Sanders he just happened to be a Ravens fan, described

The family of Glen Doherty, the former Navy SEAL killed in the 2012 Benghazi terror attack, has filed a $2 million claim against the CIA and the State Department. Barbara Doherty, the CIA contractor and former SEAL’s mother, filed a claim last week with the two government agencies for $1 million each. The family does not believe there was adequate security at the U.S. diplomatic outpost and a CIA annex when they were attacked Sept. 11, 2012. Dean Boyd, a spokesman for the CIA, said the agency would have no comment on the potential litigation, the Associated Press reported Friday. The

The conventional wisdom concerning the comparative generalship of Robert E. Lee and Ulysses S. Grant was established almost immediately after the Civil War. Despite his role as, in the words of Frederick Douglass, “the rebel chieftain,” Lee has been portrayed as surpassing all others on both sides of the conflict not only in soldierly virtue but also in magnanimity and humanity. Indeed, for decades, no Civil War figure, not even Abraham Lincoln, has exceeded the reputation of Robert E. Lee. Lee has been described as the perfect soldier — a Christian and a gentleman as well as a peerless commander who

WASHINGTON — Kurdish fighters battling ISIS desperately want more guns and armor, but they already have a secret weapon: The fanatics they’re fighting fear that if they get killed in combat by a woman, they won’t go to heaven. “They have many female battalions, as you know who fought very bravely,” Rep. Ed Royce (R-Calif.), who chairs the House International Relations Committee, told The Post of the Kurds.

With little fanfare, President Obama has enjoyed remarkable success in his project to remake the federal courts in his own ideological image. How much more he achieves during his final two years in office depends in large part on whether Republicans win control of the Senate this November. Obama’s success is most marked in the federal courts of appeals, the intermediate level of the national judicial hierarchy. When Obama took office, only 1 of the 13 appellate courts had a majority of Democratic appointees. Now 9 do. Obama’s number of confirmed appellate nominees—53—only slightly exceeds President George W. Bush’s six-year total

I know I’ve written this post before but it’s something I’ve been thinking about amid all the “Condi for NFL commissioner!” stuff lately. (And besides, after two years, it’s due for an update.) Why commissioner and not GOP nominee? The 2016 field is “insanely wide open,” after all, and she’s got plenty to commend her — sterling academic credentials, years of diplomatic experience at the highest level, popularity among both wings of the GOP, and a trailblazer narrative that can trump even Hillary’s. She’d be seen, rightly or wrongly, as the “adult” in a field of Republican neophytes, someone whose

But our ruling class, from President Obama on the Left to The Wall Street Journal on the Right, take the public’s pressure to do this as another occasion for further indulging their longtime preferences, prejudices, and proclivities for half-measures in foreign affairs—the very things that have invited people from all over the planet to join hunting season on Americans.

Flashes of disagreement over how to fight the Islamic State are mounting between President Obama and U.S. military leaders, the latest sign of strain in what often has been an awkward and uneasy relationship. Even as the administration has received congressional backing for its strategy, with the Senate voting Thursday to approve a plan to arm and train Syrian rebels, a series of military leaders have criticized the president’s approach against the Islamic State militant group. Retired Marine Gen. James Mattis, who served under Obama until last year, became the latest high-profile skeptic on Thursday, telling the House Intelligence Committee

Devastating. That´s really the only way to describe Politico´s piece on DNC Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz. (I hereby nominate her for Worst Week in Washington.) (Editor´s note: Three words -- Joseph. Robinette. Biden.) Based on interviews with DNC staffers -- both former and current -- the piece described Wasserman Schultz as something of a modern-day Tracy Flick: over-eager, disloyal and not shy about promoting her ambitions. It would be fair to say that she sounds like, well, a lot like other politicians. And this would be accurate.

The U.S Senate passed a bill Thursday evening that will give President Barack Obama the authority to arm moderate Syrian rebels, which is a key part of his plan to fight the jihadist group Islamic State (also known as ISIS and ISIL). Shortly after the Senate passed the bill, which was passed by the House on Wednesday, Obama spoke from the White House. "I´m pleased that Congress, a majority of Democrats and a majority of Republicans in both the House and Senate, have now voted to support a key element of our strategy," Obama said. Obama, who reiterated the fact

On Thursday In a session with the House Committee on Foreign Affairs, Secretary of State John Kerry was asked by Rep. Joe Wilson (R-SC) whether America was at war in Iraq and Syria.

The U.S. military campaign against Islamist militants in Syria is being designed to allow President Barack Obama to exert a high degree of personal control, going so far as to require that the military obtain presidential signoff for strikes in Syrian territory, officials said. The requirements for strikes in Syria against the extremist group Islamic State will be far more stringent than those targeting

(Video)Friday during the White House press briefing, National Security Advisor Susan Rice abruptly left in the middle of a question after confusing reporters with her announcement President Barack Obama was going ahead with air strikes in Syria.
