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.

Satellite photos show how the depredations of dictators have turned the world’s fourth largest inland sea into a poisonous desert. MOSCOW, Russia — Photographs that NASA released this week show the graphic chronicle of a natural disaster in Central Asia’s Kyzylkum Desert. The images from the Terra satellite feature the patches of water remaining in the disappearing Aral Sea, which was once the fourth largest inland sea in the world. They look dark green in 2001, light green in 2005, as the sea grew shallower, and this year they are all but gone. The seawater once covering 26,000 square miles vanishes

If you want to know why the American public has such a dim view of lawyers, you should read an opinion issued last month by the 3rd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in Williams v. BASF. The opinion describes the allegations of a class of onetime asbestos plaintiffs who claim that a BASF predecessor and lawyers at Cahill Gordon & Reindel conspired to cheat them out of their rightful recovery in decades-old asbestos suits. According to the plaintiffs, who have depositions and document evidence to back their accusations, Cahill and its former client, a BASF predecessor, systematically hid and destroyed evidence

PRINCETON, NJ -- Registered voters are more likely to view their choice of candidate in this year´s midterm elections as a message of opposition (32%) rather than support (20%) for President Barack Obama. That 12-percentage-point margin is similar to what Gallup measured for Obama in 2010 and George W. Bush in 2006, years in which their parties performed poorly in the midterm elections.(Snip for graph) Gallup first asked this question in 1998, the year Republicans were moving toward impeaching President Bill Clinton for lying about his affair with a White House intern. That year, when Clinton´s approval rating was 63%,

Most Texas abortion clinics shut down

ATLANTA — Texas, America’s second-most populous state behind California, saw 13 of its last abortion clinics turn away women on Friday, after a federal appeals court upheld a law that practically guarantees that only a handful of clinics will remain open in the state. The strictest-of-its-kind Texas law requires abortion providers to build hospital-grade facilities and obtain sometimes impossible-to-get hospital admitting privileges. After signed into law last year by Gov. Rick Perry (R), the law forced most of the 41 clinics operating to close. Thursday’s ruling wiped out a brief victory this summer for abortion rights proponents,

The president promises to lawlessly amnesty millions of illegal aliens on his own say-so, enabling them to get work cards, Social Security numbers, driver’s licenses, EITC, foreign travel documents, and the rest.

Senator Sessions has helpfully provided a number of “lawful, constitutional executive actions” that the president should already be undertaking but isn’t: Complete the border fence that Congress has previously passed into law; Create the exit-entry system to track foreign visa-holders, which Congress has repeatedly mandated; Cancel visas

The Centers for Disease Control released a new chart on how contagious Ebola is compared to other diseases. The results may surprise you, according to IJReview. What you’re seeing is an evaluation of how contagious the Ebola virus actually is compared to previous epidemics, namely: Hepatitis C, HIV, SARS, Mumps, and Measles. As Michaeleen Doucleff reported, these little icons of pink and red people reflect the disease’s relative R0 or R(nought) scores. The red person is the disease carrier, and the pink people

Commencement speeches can be amusing, inspiring or, in the worst (some would say even the best) case, a bit dull. Schools tend to choose corporate CEOs, politicians and celebrities to send off the graduating class with a speech meant to give graduates a glimpse of what they can achieve if they work hard in the years that lie before them. Goddard College, a small liberal arts school in Plainfield, Vt., wanted a different kind of speaker. The graduating class chose a cop killer. A video recording was arranged so that Mumia Abu-Jamal could speak to the students from Mahanoy State Correctional

The U.S. economy added 248,000 jobs in September, and the unemployment rate dropped to 5.9 percent. But the labor force participation rate continued to fall, average hourly earnings seem frozen, and over 13 percent of workers are either out of work, involuntarily working part time or too discouraged to keep hunting for jobs, and 20 percent of teenagers are out of work. In short, two cheers for the latest report, but hold the champagne. Sales of new homes rose 18 percent in August from July, but sales of previously owned homes, 90 percent of all sales, fell 1.8 percent, and

Yet her own organisation’s tardiness, partly caused by cuts, together with reductions in--and misuse of--funds elsewhere, are largely responsible for Ebola spiralling out of control. [Snip] It’s just the beginning. At present the numbers of people infected are thought to be doubling in under 30 days--and the blue-chip US Center for Disease Control and Prevention predicts that, if Ebola

President Obama was at Northwestern University on Thursday to deliver an economic speech that, he and his team hoped, would lay out the case for why the public is better off today than they were six years ago -- even if they didn´t feel it in their everday lives. Instead, Obama just gave every Republican ad-maker in the country more fodder for negative ads linking Democratic candidates to him. Here are the four sentences that will draw all of the attention (they come more than two thirds of the way through the speech): "I am not on the ballot this

threat to America than any terror group -
so why is Obama spending billions bombing

I’m always sceptical when I hear scare-mongering claims about diseases. From bird flu to SARS, we’re repeatedly told it’s going to be the new Plague that will wipe everyone out and then…it doesn’t. Probably because the scare-mongering itself makes people take it seriously enough to prevent it spreading. But there is something very sinister and frightening about this Ebola outbreak, which has so far infected 7,100 and killed 3,300. [Snip] It’s hard to think of a more cack-handed, dangerously inept response than what transpired in Dallas. Consider what we now know: Thomas Eric Duncan, a 42-year-old Liberian citizen, had been

In a speech in Boston, First Lady Michelle Obama left behind talk of exercise and school lunches, exchanging it all for bald politics by claiming that under her husband the US economy is now better off "by almost every economic measure." The First Lady appeared at the Strand Theater Friday to stump for Martha Coakley´s campaign for Governor of Massachusetts. Coakley needs help badly, as even in blue, blue Massachusetts, the race between Democrat Coakley and Republican Charlie Baker is essentially a toss up. In her remarks, Obama pushed the President´s newest campaign line that he has saved the economy based on

Meghan McCain joined the dog pile on the Secret Service this week, saying she’s had “nothing but horrible experiences" with the agency and likening the agents to “glorified mall cops.” The 29-year-old author and television personality, who is also the daughter of former GOP presidential candidate Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.), opened up on Pivot’s “TakePart Live” about some of her interactions with the Secret Service. "I have nothing but horrible experiences with the Secret Service,” McCain said. “One of my friends called them glorified mall cops and I don´t think that´s terribly far off. I found them cliquey. I hated

First lady Michelle Obama believes that Democrats running for Congress eagerly desire her presence on the campaign trail during the run-up to the 2014 midterm elections. However, she has avoided helping some Senate Democrats because she’s mad at them for failing to show adequate support for her deeply unpopular attempt to change people’s diets. The Daily Caller is not making this up. The New York Times has reported it. (Snip) Michelle Obama was also especially furious after nearly a dozen Democrats from states where potatoes are a commercial crop joined Republican lawmakers in opposing a decision by the Obama
