Plasco Building collapse - Tehran, Iran - January 19, 2017



Fred Dietz1 day ago I’m going to say “inadequate sheer studs”, as there was already an Iranian architect on Press TV saying that Plasco Building (Iran’s first high-rise) was never built inline with “national construction regulations”. But that’s also a world of difference from WTC 7, which had over 3,800 sheer studs that were inspected every year by NYC (and this was revealed in a 2012 FOIA). NIST outright lied in their report and said WTC 7 didn’t have any sheer studs.

T Wayland5 hours ago Fred Dietz in another video i saw about this they were talking about how the building had needed repairs for years.


Ariane Kosmolowski1 day ago This is not a symmetrical collapse as seen in WTC7. Different parts of the building collapse one after another. It also takes a while, and this is only 17 stories.

Ted Huntington1 day ago yeah it is from one side to the other- like a "triangle" collapse. Look how there are some initial detonations, a pause of a few seconds, a large detonation, another pause of a few seconds, then the sequential detonations. Why oh why do we know that no evidence of explosives will be found.

ouchyg1 day ago (edited) Classic controlled demolition signs. Detonator flashes 0:46, explosive ejections 0:08, explosive streamers, and explosions 1:03. From nearly every angle lateral energy releases before the building displayed any vertical motion (begins to collapse). This wasn't caused by just fire. I wonder what this is all about?



TEHRAN BUILDING COLLAPSE: INVESTIGATORS MUST CONSIDER EXPLOSIVES
Based on preliminary analysis of many videos of the collapse, Architects & Engineers for 9/11 Truth (AE911Truth)—a nonprofit that represents more than 2,750 architects and engineers who are calling for a new investigation of the 2001 World Trade Center disaster—strongly urges President Rouhani, Iranian authorities, and the people of Iran to thoroughly investigate the possible use of explosives in the Plasco Building’s shocking demise, and to act swiftly and decisively to preserve the physical evidence.

AE911Truth Press Release Plasco Building Collapse 01.20 250
Earlier today, AE911Truth released a statement in response to yesterday’s tragic collapse of the iconic Plasco Building in Tehran, Iran, which reportedly claimed dozens of lives. The 17-story high-rise had large fires that burned for some 3 ½ hours before it suddenly came crashing to the ground.
After carefully analyzing videos that were available online and reviewing the circumstances surrounding the shocking demise of this building, we determined that it was our responsibility to call for the possible use of explosives to be thoroughly investigated.
Issuing this press release across the U.S., the U.K., and the Middle East — including in Iran — is costing AE911Truth $1,850. We encourage you to chip in toward covering this unanticipated expense, if you are so inclined. Thank you as always for your support.

Tehran Building Collapse: Investigators Must Consider Explosives
NEW YORK – At approximately 11:30 AM local time yesterday in Tehran, an iconic 17-story high-rise known as the Plasco Building tragically collapsed after being on fire for some 3 ½ hours. It is not yet known how many firefighters and civilians were killed, but early reports say that anywhere from 20 to 50 are feared dead.
Based on preliminary analysis of many videos of the collapse, Architects & Engineers for 9/11 Truth (AE911Truth)—a nonprofit that represents more than 2,750 architects and engineers who are calling for a new investigation of the 2001 World Trade Center disaster—strongly urges President Rouhani, Iranian authorities, and the people of Iran to thoroughly investigate the possible use of explosives in the Plasco Building’s shocking demise, and to act swiftly and decisively to preserve the physical evidence.
Let us be clear: It is impossible to know at this early stage what caused the structure to suddenly come crashing down. But, as with any proper forensic investigation, no plausible scenario should be ruled out—especially when the available data seem to support that scenario.
Here, six separate videos we have compiled show what appear to be—and in some cases sound like—explosions emanating from the tower in sequential patterns as it began to crumble. The building’s tumultuous fall is then accompanied by thick, energetic, rapidly forming plumes that are reminiscent of what we see in controlled demolitions.
Further, the BBC reported that the fires were nearly extinguished—and that emergency personnel and occupants had begun reentering the building—when the collapse unexpectedly occurred. Indeed, videos display very few flames and a thick black smoke—signs of a low-temperature, oxygen-starved fire. Moreover, the inferno was limited to the upper floors, yet the entire 17 stories came down in just a few seconds.
We at AE911Truth are all too familiar with events in which a prematurely formed narrative makes it harder to subsequently ascertain what truly happened. We therefore adamantly caution against rushing to any conclusions as investigators work to uncover the truth surrounding this national tragedy in Iran.
Should the Plasco Building collapse be found to have been caused by pre-placed explosives, sadly it will not be the first time that explosives were used to bring down a burning high-rise while people were still inside.

Andrew Napolitano Meets Donald Trump for Second Time On Supreme Court Nomination

President-elect Donald Trump met Tuesday, for the second time since the November presidential election, with Fox News Senior Judicial Analyst and Ron Paul Institute Advisory Board Member Andrew Napolitano. As with their previous hour-long meeting in December, Napolitano says in an interview with host Stuart Varney at Fox Business that a focus of the new meeting was Trump choosing a nominee to fill the vacant Supreme Court position.

In particular, Napolitano says in the interview that Trump and Napolitano discussed, in relation to filling the vacancy, “judicial attitudes, judicial temperament, ideology, and candidates for the court.”

http://ronpaulinstitute.org/archives/peace-and-prosperity/2017/january/17/andrew-napolitano-meets-donald-trump-for-second-time-on-supreme-court-nomination/

If Trump has met with Napolitano for a second time they would have talked about more than just the Supreme Court nominations.

Napolitano likely reminded Trump about following US Law when it comes to wars, drone strikes, and prosecuting Clinton. There's also the link here to the Ron Paul Institute.

If Trump follows US Law he'll be a very good President. This is perhaps an indicator as to what Trump really thinks. He's not stupid and is aware of the Washington corruption and lawlessness.

Truth Is Where Our Healing Lies


Re: [dc911truth] Signs for big leaflets or small easy-to-carry bizcards about TrumpCommission.org

Here are details to explain what I was saying on the call.
 
People are already thinking Trump Trump Trump on Friday
and we can "judo" them into the direction of 9/11 Truth,
by the principle of using their existing momentum.
 
We 9/11 Truthers won big league.  We have the first
9/11 Truther in Chief in the White House, who can
finally bring us a new investigation.  Now we can
focus on getting Donald to do it.
 
We can approach them with the words: "This is about
Trump, the first to question the 9/11 story on TV, and
a new investigation and justice for the families of the
victims who want to sue Saudi Arabia for their role."
 
It is good to think big, with big signs.  Yet we can also
"think small" and easily carry 100's of business cards.
People are more likely to accept and keep "mini-flyers".
 
The cards are updated to mention that Donald Trump
was the first to say on TV that explosives were used.
 
After giving 9/11 flyers to Donald at several rallies and
talking with Donald Junior in Iowa, they know 9/11 was
an inside job, and that Larry Silverstein was involved.
 
I have 2 tickets to the audience area on Friday morning.
On Thursday, I will be attending the Iowa Reception
and will give easy-to-carry business cards to
Senators Grassley and Ernst and Iowa Congressmen
 
Anyone, regardless of state, can to attend. They won't
be checking IDs. You can print the attached invitation
to carry in your pocket, just in case.
 
The idea behind approaching as a K Street association
is that politicians and their staff are already used to them.
So we can get in the door to give our message quicker.
 
If anyone wants cards to print out, let me know.
They are easy and inexpensive to print at home.
Anyone can be a member and there are no dues.

Or, you can make 9/11 Truth Action Project cards.
