Western Standard audio: 9-11 “truther” comes to the defence of former Liberal candidate Lesley Hughes

Former Liberal Party candidate Lesley Hughes was pushed out of her party for her scepticism of the official explanation of the September 11, 2001 World Trade Centre attack.

One of her American supporters contacted the Western Standard to let us know that Hughes is “absolutely right” to reject the official claim of what happened on that tragic day.

Here’s the rather unconventional viewpoint of Ernie Weaver from Baltimore Maryland on guns, food, race, Lesley Hughes and the truth behind 9-11 (if the widget doesn't work for you, you can click on this link):

I found it quite entertaining. I hope the sound quality is OK.

Oh yeah that's a credible source. With "friends" like these, Hughes is better off alone. And people wonder why the 9/11 Denial movement has little credibility.

WWW.AARONJAMESSTORY.COM- In defense of Lesley Hughes journalist of good conscience:We are Canadians attacked in the United States and placed through Extrajudicial (illegal/covert) persecution and ongoing threats and attempts upon our LIVES- B/C OF BUSH/MCCAIN AIPEC U.S. FALSE WAR ON TERROR PERSECUTION/ DEATH MACHINE-
- In DEFENSE OF LESLEY HUGHES- This was a blatant attack upon a moral journalist of good conscience making a statement about Israeli AND U.S. *GOVERNMENT and the resulting oppression upon society – not a statement against Israeli or Jewish *people.
FALSE WAR ON TERROR: Weapons of Mass Destruction NEVER FOUND. Afghanistan President
Khalid Karzai an AIPEC Israeli affiliate /former senior economic advisor to UNOCAL largest Oil company in Afghanistan- I.M.F (International Monetary Fund) reaps oil of the carnage and massacre of the Afghan and Iraqi people sells it at 1000% profit margin to the North American gas companies who sell it at profit to
the consumer at the gas pump. Blood Diamonds and Blood Oil.
Production of Poppy seeds in Afghanistan is the basis for opium production. The U.S. economy is based on
three main facets: Drugs, Oil and War. The false war on terror is a war for the CONTROL
of drugs and related manufacture, the profiteering upon the sale of military goods and munitions and the profiteering off of oil reaped in the blood of the oppressed!
The U.S backing of Georgia is a parity to the Palestinian persecution by the Israelis.
Ossetia being the parity to Palestine -the Georgian president is an Israeli AIPEC affiliate Cheney's oil pipeline and the U.S economy has interests in all of these areas. Drug/Blood/Oil money. Detestable!

Hmmm... I wonder if Ernie Weaver also believes the sun rises in the east--if so I think I will change my own belief so as not to think the same way he does. At this point the list of people that know the official story is bogus has Ernie Weaver at about #1,223,445,678. Handpicking some whacko to "represent" the side of truth is a transparent attempt at distracting from the fact that we skeptics of the official conspiracy theory about bin laden directing 9/11 from his secret mountain fortress are the ones who are right and that more and more people are realizing that every day. For those who want to know the real truth about 9/11 read the latest book by David Ray Griffin: The New Pearl Harbor Revisited. You will be glad you did.

As Canadians, we need to support freedom of speech and analytical thinking!

I think Hughes is absolutely right to question who is truly responsible for 9/11 (and who has gained from it since), and it's appalling that the Liberal party of all parties would try to censor one of their own. Understand that that, in a free country, questioning motives and cause is not the same as DENIAL. I don't think anyone is denying that 9/11 happened... I mean we all have cable, right.... but those of us that have analytical abilities have definitely been questioning Bush's official story since day one. By now, I would hope that anyone with a head would have learned to question anything and everything Bush as ever said.

Are we American? No! That means we have REAL freedom of speech. Hughes can form and discuss whatever opinions she wants to; that's what is means to be a Canadian. 9/11 was not our disaster and, frankly, I'm getting a little sick hearing about it nearly a decade later. It was a unbelievable tragedy that affected the American PEOPLE, but it has since been used against them countless times by their own government (Iraq? FISA?). Americans should stand up and take back that day (and its meaning!) for themselves. If I were them, I would feel disgusted and dirty and used because of the Bush administration's extreme exploitation of a serious tragedy. That exploitation alone is more than enough to make me question everything I know about the cause of 9/11. And I would hope that everyone could be mature enough to handle that small difference of opinion.
