  • In plotting to arrest Rudy Giuliani, 9/11 truthers may finally have found a way to make Bay Area folk sympathetic to the man
A none-too-imaginatively named group calling itself the "March 24th Committee to Arrest Giuliani" sent out press releases confirming its plan to ... arrest Rudy Giuliani! Guess when?

As "America's mayor" hits San Jose tomorrow for the Get Motivated! Business Seminar the group plan to arrest him (citing "California Penal Code 837") for allegedly lying about how he knew all along that 9/11 was an inside job.

You can see a video here where Giuliani supposedly tells Peter Jennings how "We were operating out of there [75 Barclay St.] when we were told that

the World Trade Center was going to collapse. And it did collapse before

we could actually get out of the building." Aha! You see? Rudy knew the twin towers were going to collapse before they collapsed!

Actually, it warrants mentioning that many people knew the towers were going to collapse before they collapsed -- the emergency personnel who frantically tried to radio the firefighters within to get them out, to no avail. In fact, it has been well-documented that, since the radios used by New York emergency workers didn't broadcast between departments -- or function at all within steel skyscrapers -- the firefighters did not receive the frantic maydays to get the hell out of the North Tower before it collapsed. 

These problems existed all the way back in 1993, when terrorists blew up a car bomb beneath the World Trade Center. So Giuliani can't claim he didn't know about them. But he did nothing.

That may be cause for some sort of citizens' call for justice. Or, on the other hand, you could believe that Rudy Giuliani, a man who couldn't even win his battle with the Brooklyn Museum of Art over a dispute centering around shit-smeared sculptures, was the kingpin in an international conspiracy to kill thousands of Americans and wreak billions of dollars of domestic damages.

The tin foil is on aisle three, boys.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
