Are the Parks and Trails Safe in Collingwood with Coyotes Present

Recently (02-28-2018) I emailed the Town of Collingwood Clerk about my concerns for safety issues at Nip Spooner Park on Georgian Manor Dr in Collingwood. As a resident I believed the Town park was not safe given the fact that coyotes frequented the park. I do not use the park myself but I felt a sense of community responsibility once I realized their was danger in our area from coyotes. I was aware of the threat and problem, in my mind, so I felt the Town of Collingwood should also know about this issue and hopefully share my concerns and take appropriate action. Reasonable expectations?

Resident emails of immediate threat in area

I did not get a direct reply response to my email of 02-28-2018 but a comment was provided in response to another of my emails on March 02, 2018. It was stated that “Because of the ongoing concerns / sightings around Georgian Manor Drive, the Town will be posting signage in the area”.

email from Sara Almas 03-02-2018_0001

I suspect the sign that will be posted in the Nip Spooner park will be the Town’s coyote awareness signs.

It is reasonable to state my concern over the saftey of the park on my street is being address by a coyote awareness sign. What I do not understand is that I am aware of the issue and some parents with kids are aware of the issue so they don’ t use the park. The Town’s response is to make others aware that coyotes may be present and to help people deal with the situation. According to the Town’s policy makers if we are aware that coyotes may be at Nip Spooner Park (which we know they actually are there – not may be) then in the Town’s mind we have been served appropriate notice that we can deal with the coyotes. In addition a Coyote Watch Canada meeting, for those who attend, will help educate us to scare off coyotes when present.

Now that we know by seeing coyotes frequently at the park or we will know by signage which will be posted at the park at some point in time (does not appear to be urgent) what are parents told to say to their kids from the education programs available through the Town of Collingwood – MNRF and Coyote Watch materials?

Kid: Mom can I take Rex (small family dog) to Nip Spooner Park for a walk and play?

Mom: Yes be careful. Coyotes may be present. As we know if you see coyotes at the park; do not feed them, keep Rex on a leash, if they approach appear large and aggressive, make loud sounds, back away slowly, and do not run home.

Kid: Will they hurt me?

Mom: According to government provided stats  and opinions it is “unlikely” that coyotes will attack people. You are more likely of be hit by lightening.

Kid: Have coyotes attacked kids?

Mom: We are told it is “unlikely” but we are also told that coyotes are wild animals and should be treated accordingly MNRF risk assessment emails

Added conversation which would not happen based on government provided information for coexistence.

Mom – but I was provided with several cases in which coyotes attacked and bit young kids like you. How would this change the discussion and actions by the mom and kid?

I have been made aware of three incidents partly on my own research as I am concerned and provided by a community website https://www.coyoteconcernscollingwood.com

http://www.hometownstation.com/santa-clarita-latest-news/coyote-wildlife-sightings-in-santa-clarita-as-spring-season-begins-224774

https://www.mercurynews.com/2016/10/14/california-town-on-edge-after-boy-6-attacked-by-coyote/

Kid: What does treated accordingly mean. What should I do?

Mom: We have discussed what the signs say. You should obey the signs.

Kid: What happens if I get scared and run home?

Mom: Don’t run because the coyotes will think you are prey and will more likely attack you like a rabbit.

Kid: Will the coyotes hurt Rex (small family dog)

Mom: Coyotes commonly attack small dogs according to the MNRF who is a government agency mandated to protect animals. We are told to keep dogs on leashes and if they are attacked it is acceptable behavior by wild animals such as coyotes. If they attack Rex the government will not do anything to the coyote.

Kid: I would be very sad if they attacked Rex.

Mom: You should be able to scare them off it you yell at them and throw something at them.

KId: Would coyotes attack Rex if I was walking with him on a leash?

Mom: I think it could happen but not sure. They say coyotes commonly attack small dogs.

Additional information. Recent attack on a small dog being walked on leash by a older women in Markham.

Kid: I am not a very good thrower. What happens if I don’t hit them? Will they hurt Rex?

Mom: We are told that this is an acceptable risk and our parks are safe. I trust the government knows what they are doing and would not put you at risk. We are suppose to coexist with coyotes and continue to enjoy our parks. I guess a few dogs will suffer because of coyotes.

Kid: I think I will stay home and play video games.

Back to the emails to the Town of Collingwood regarding the park.

On March 16, 2018 I met with Town Clerk Sara Almas and Dean Colver Director, Parks, Recreation & Culture, The Town of Collingwood. After the meeting Dean requested joining coyote concerns Collingwood Facebook group and is currently a member.  I trust Dean will give us some additional insight into the park situation in Collingwood and why Nip Spooner park is safe in his mind.

In advance of the meeting I sent an email with some ideas to discuss – break the ice.

town meeting ideas 03-16-2018

We did not discuss my email in advance of the meeting. Unfortunately our meeting was not productive as we were at very different ends of spectrum on what should be done about coyote concerns in Collingwood. Hopefully the debate on what should be done with coyotes vs educating residents on how to coexist will continue. The Town believes we need to be educated on coexistence and we need to educate the Town on the threats we feel should be addressed. Resident concerns and threats should not necessarily be assessed based on other communities or what is a standard across Ontario or other cities in Canada. The residents of Collingwood have the right to have a say in what they deem to be a threat and to have these threats acted on.

One interesting discussion was around my request to change the Town coyotes signs to indicate danger vs awareness. I suggested the signs are misleading as the presence of coyotes creates a danger. The Town’s perspective was more aligned with considering “potential danger”.

Below are some of my thoughts on the meeting. I am sharing this because there are many people who would like to attend a meeting with these individuals and debate the need to take action on our coyote concerns and remove coyotes from our city.

Email exchange with Town of Collingwood Dean Colver;

email response Dean Colver 03-16-2018

Back to the topic at hand – are our parks and trails safe?

In the case of Nip Spooner park my position is it is not safe for kids with or without parents and not safe for small dogs. In my mind it is unacceptable for kids to have to deal with unpredictable wild animals who have attacked kids. I would not allow my children to play in this park. I believe coyotes are an immediate threat to public safety by being around the park. if parents were to approach the park and see coyotes they should call the OPP at Call 911 or Collingwood OPP at 705-445-4321 and tell hem that you feel threatened by coyotes and believe there is an immediate threat to your safety – please respond.

By posting the coyote awareness sign at Nip Spooner Park will  this in effect, to many parents, be an unofficial closing of the park?

I believe the Town of Collingwood has failed to act on the need to close the Nip Spooner park until coyotes are removed from the area. If residents are concerned about threats from coyotes then they can trap coyotes on their own properties. This is how it is left with the Town.

The Town has responded to their position to the Nip Spooner park by email response that signage will be added. I invite Dean to comment on this in our Facebook group https://www.facebook.com/groups/CoyoteConcernsCollingwood/  to help us understand why the Nip Spooner park is safe for kids to play and under what conditions should parents enter the park and use it with their kids.

As a parent; I would not take my child near this park in Collingwood.

If public opinion will help keep our parks safe then please email the Town of Collingwood with your concerns;

  1. http://www.collingwood.ca/clerk email salmas@collingwood.ca
  2. Email  Collingwood councilors http://www.collingwood.ca/council and ask them to address the coyote concerns of Collingwood by removing them form Collingwood and keeping them out.
  3. Sign an electronic petition to ask for action.  The petition will be emailed to the Town of Collingwood Clerk.
  4. Present a deputation to the Town of Collingwood Council http://www.collingwood.ca/node/2265

  1. Hi there! Quick question that’s totally off topic. Do you know how to make your site mobile friendly?
    My website looks weird when browsing from my iphone. I’m trying to find a template or plugin that might be
    able to fix this problem. If you have any suggestions, please share.
    Cheers!

  2. My brother recommended I may like this blog. He was entirely right.
    This put up truly made my day. You can not consider simply how
    so much time I had spent for this information!
    Thanks!

  3. I have had coyotes behind my residence for the past 8 years. Many people walk their dogs along a trail that runs behind the property. There have never been any problems and they are rarely spotted. The howling at night is the only good indication of their presence. Occasionally I will find a rabbit or squirrel carcass that they have fed on. Coyotes are harmless and shy away from humans. A more dangerous threat is raccoons since they are not as shy to humans. The only time I would fear a coyote is if it had rabies.
    People need to understand that if they want to live outside of the city surrounded by farmland and forest then they have to accept the wildlife as it is, this includes bears, cougars, wolves, coyotes, skunks, porcupines, badgers, raccoons. If you don’t want them coming around then you must remove any food sources (garbage) and ensure that the lands that they occupy are able to support them, this means not overdeveloping with low density housing, golf courses, shopping malls. This means ensuring that we have protected undeveloped wildlife areas. If you are uncomfortable with wildlife then you should live in the city. Bears, cougars and wolves are the only true dangers to humans where action is warranted. Coyotes no.

  4. Hey! This is my first visit to your blog! We are a collection of volunteers and starting a
    new project in a community in the same niche. Your blog
    provided us valuable information to work on. You have done
    a marvellous job!

  5. Have you ever thought about including a little bit more than just your
    articles? I mean, what you say is fundamental and all.
    However imagine if you added some great graphics or video clips to
    give your posts more, “pop”! Your content is excellent but
    with pics and clips, this site could certainly be one of
    the greatest in its field. Good blog!

  6. I am extremely impressed with your writing skills as well as with the layout on your weblog.

    Is this a paid theme or did you customize it yourself? Anyway keep up the excellent quality writing, it is rare to see a nice blog like this one today.

  7. Hey, how’s it going?

    I want to pass along some very important news that everyone needs to hear!

    In December of 2017, Donald Trump made history by recognizing Jerusalem as the captial of Israel. Why is this big news? Because by this the Jewish people of Israel are now able to press forward in bringing about the Third Temple prophesied in the Bible.

    Jewish Rabbis have publicly announced that their Messiah will be revealed in the coming years who will be a leader and spiritual guide to all nations, gathering all religions under the worship of one God. They deny Jesus as their Messiah, and the Bible tells us this Jewish Messiah will be the counterfiet that will bring about a false peace, and ultimatley the great tribulation.

    They even printed a coin to raise money for the Temple with Donald Trumps face on the front and with king Cyrus'(who built the second Temple) behind him. On the back of the coin is an image of the third Temple.

    More importantly, the power that runs the world wants to put a RFID microchip in our body making us total slaves to them. This chip matches perfectly with the Mark of the Beast in the Bible, more specifically in Revelation 13:16-18:

    “He causes all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on their right hand or on their foreheads, and that no one may buy or sell except one who has the mark or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.

    Here is wisdom. Let him who has understanding calculate the number of the beast, for it is the number of a man: His number is 666.”

    Referring to the last days, this could only be speaking of a cashless society, which we have yet to see, but are heading towards. Otherwise, we could still buy or sell without the mark amongst others if physical money was still currency. This Mark couldn’t be spiritual because the word references two different physical locations. If it was spiritual it would just say in the forehead. RFID microchip implant technology will be the future of a one world cashless society containing digital currency. It will be implanted in the right-hand or the forehead, and we cannot buy or sell without it! We must grow strong in Jesus. AT ALL COSTS, DO NOT TAKE IT!

    “Then a third angel followed them, saying with a loud voice, “If anyone worships the beast and his image, and receives his mark on his forehead or on his hand, he himself shall also drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out full strength into the cup of His indignation. He shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels and in the presence of the Lamb. And the smoke of their torment ascends forever and ever; and they have no rest day or night, who worship the beast and his image, and whoever receives the mark of his name” (Revelation 14:9-11).

    People have been saying the end is coming for many years, but we needed two key things. One, the Third Temple, and two, the technology for a cashless society to fulfill the prophecy of the Mark of the Beast.

    Visit http://WWW.BIBLEFREEDOM.COM to see proof for these things and much more!

    If you haven’t already, it is time to seek God with all your heart. Jesus loves you more than you could imagine. He wants to have a relationship with you and redeem you from your sins. Turn to Him and repent while there is still hope! God bless!

    I ain’t saying your information is not good., but what if you added a headline to possibly get a
    person’s attention? I mean Are the Parks and Trails Safe in Collingwood with Coyotes Present – Coyote Concerns Collingwood is a little boring.
    You should glance at Yahoo’s front page and note how they create article headlines to get viewers to click.
    You might add a related video or a picture or two to get people interested about
    everything’ve written. In my opinion, it would
    make your website a little bit more interesting.

  13. Today, I went to the beach front with my children. I found a
    sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She
    placed the shell to her ear and screamed. There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear.
    She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is totally
    off topic but I had to tell someone!

  56. Hi,

    This is a very important public service announcement concerning our future well being. I found this information very interesting and should be read by everyone. Please take the time to read it over:

    We are approaching a future in which they will mandate us to have an RFID microchip implanted in our body. This microchip will contain all our personal information, and we will lose much more of our privacy because of the tracking capabilities.

    Did you know this microchiop matches perfectly with prophecy in the Bible? Please read on!

    “He causes all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on their right hand or on their foreheads, and that no one may buy or sell except one who has the mark or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.

    Here is wisdom. Let him who has understanding calculate the number of the beast, for it is the number of a man: His number is 666” (Revelation 13:16-18 NKJV).

    Referring to the last days, this could only be speaking of a cashless money society, which we have yet to see, but are heading towards. Otherwise we could still buy or sell without the mark among others if physical money was still currency. This mark could not be spiritual, because the word references two different physical locations. If it was spiritual, it would just say in the forehead.

    We can see throughout the history of society how we are being conditioned through the process of convenience. More specifically with how we make payments. We went from physical currency to credit and debit cards containing digital currency, to these cards having a microchip in them, to now being able to place your card near a device that will read its data. As well as self check-out lines in our market places and the cryptocurrency industry making a rapid climb in such form as bitcoin. These are all stepping stones for the powers that run this world to bring about their ultimate goal, that is to place a microchip in each and every one of us.

    RFID microchip implant technology is on the rise and will be the future of a one world cashless money society.

    Continue reading to see how it perfectly matches up with Biblical prophecy!

    From a YouTube video titled, “Warning From Man Who Designed RFID Microchip”

    Here are some notes from the video:

    “Carl Sanders sat in seventeen New World Order meetings with heads-of-state officials such as Henry Kissinger and Bob Gates of the C.I.A. to discuss plans on how to bring about this one-world system. The government commissioned Carl Sanders to design a microchip for identifying and controlling the peoples of the world-a microchip that could be inserted under the skin with a hypodermic needle(a quick, convenient method that would be gradually accepted by society).

    Carl Sanders, with a team of engineers behind him, with U.S. grant monies supplied by tax dollars, took on this project and designed a microchip that is powered by a lithium battery, rechargeable through the temperature changes in our skin. Without the knowledge of the Bible(Brother Sanders was not a Christian at the time), these engineers spent one-and-a-half-million dollars doing research on the best and most convenient place to have the microchip inserted.

    Guess what? These researchers found that the forehead and the back of the hand(the two places Revelation says the mark will go) are not just the most convenient places, but are also the only viable places for rapid, consistent temperature changes in the skin to recharge the lithium battery. The microchip is approximately seven millimeters in length, .75 millimeters in diameter, about the size of a grain of rice. It is capable of storing pages upon pages of information about you. All your general history, work history, crime record, health history, and financial data can be stored on this chip.

    Brother Sanders believes that this microchip, which he regretfully helped design, is the “mark” spoken about in Revelation 13:16-18. The original Greek word for “mark” is “charagma,” which means a “scratch or etching.” It is also interesting to note that the number 666 is actually a word in the original Greek. The word is “chi xi stigma,” with the last part, “stigma,” also meaning “to stick or prick.”

    Mr. Sanders asked a doctor what would happen if the lithium contained within the RFID microchip leaked into the body. The doctor replied by saying a terrible sore would appear in that spot. This is what the book of Revelation says: “And the first(Angel) went, and poured out his vial on the earth; and there fell a noisome and grievous sore on the men which had the mark of the beast, and on them which worshipped his image” (Revelation 16:2).

    WHAT IS THE NAME OF THE BEAST, THE NUMBER OF ITS NAME? THE MYSTERY OF THE NUMBER 666 REVEALED?

    What I first want to mention, before I share my thoughts on the number of the beast, is that God confirms in threes. We can see this throughout scripture: “For there are three that bear witness in heaven: the Father, the Word, and the Holy Spirit; and these three are one” (1 John 5:7 NKJV). “and that He was buried, and that He rose again the third day according to the Scriptures” (1 Corinthians 15:4 NKJV). “…Holy, holy, holy, Lord God Almighty, Who was and is and is to come!” (Revelation 4:8 NKJV). There are many more examples, but I thought I would just share three of them to make the point.

    Examining Revelation 13:16-18, the first group of three I would like to point out is that the mark of the beast is described in three separate verses, 16, 17 and 18. The next three I see is in verse 16, “He causes all…” is followed by three contrasting categories of people, “both small and great, rich and poor, free and slave…”. Then unto verse 17, it opens with, “and that no one may buy or sell except one who has…”, followed by three explanations of what one must have to buy or sell, “…the mark or the name of the beast, or the number of his name”. Then in verse 18, we read “Let him who has understanding calculate…”, which is followed by, “the number of the beast, for it is the number of a man: His number is 666”. The last three I see is the number 6 being used three times in a row. The reason I’m making this point is because of the number 666, as you will read below.

    “17: even that not any could buy or sell, except the one having the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of its name” (Literal Greek Translation).

    Here we see the mark being identified as having the name of the beast, and that name being identified as being a number. We can know that these attributes being described in verse 17 are all in one thing because the Bible warns of us about receiving the mark, singular. It is clear in verse 17 that we cannot buy or sell without the mark(being previously identified as a microchip), but why cant we buy or sell without the name of the beast, or the number of its name? What does that have to do with us buying or selling if the number of the beast only applies to identifying the Antichrist, as the common thought has been? So we need the number of the beast to buy or sell. What does this mean?

    “here the wisdom is, the one having the mind let him calculate the number of the wild beast, number for of human it is, and the number of it 666” (Revelation 13:8 Greek Translation).

    “Here is wisdom. Let him that has understanding count the number of the beast: for the number of man; and its number is six hundred sixty-six” (Jubilee Bible 2000 translation).

    “In this situation wisdom is needed. Let the person who has insight figure out the number of the beast, because it is a human number. The beast’s number is 666” (GOD’S WORD translation).

    The Greek word “anthrōpos” being used in verse 18 where it says “of human” is the Greek strongs concordance G444. The first two definitions of the word are “a human being, whether male or female”, and, “generically, to include all human individuals”. Could the number of the beast apply to all mankind? In the Greek, and other translations, you will notice the beast is described as an “it”, instead of “him”. The reason I’m making this point is because when a translation says “His number is 666”, this would imply a singular person, the Antichrist. But by saying “the number of it 666”, implies that it is of the beast system as a whole.

    Throughout the years there have been people trying to calculate numbers based on titles and names that come up to the number 666 to identify one person. But from verse 18, I do not see where God is telling us to count up to 666, but rather to count the number of the beast. This number is identified as 666. So the verse is telling us to count the number 666.

    What does it mean to count? It means to add up. So how could we add up 666? Remember my previous point about God confirming in threes. So logically, what would be the best way to count the number 666? To count it equally in threes based off the number. We cannot count it equally as 600+60+6, this would also bring us back to the start. We cannot count it as 600+600+600, or 60+60+60, because there are no zeroes in between or at the end of 666. The only option is 6+6+6=18. What is interesting is that the verse that reveals for us to count the number itself is verse 18, being the third verse out of three verses that describe the mark of the beast. What is 18 divided by 3? 6. So 3×6=18, or 6+6+6=18.

    Another interesting point is the only two other combinations(making a total of three possible combinations) for placing a “+” symbol in between the 6’s are 66+6=72, and 6+66=72. Adding 7+2 and 7+2 equals 18. Add both 72’s together and you get 144. Why the number 144 is interesting is because the verse following Revelation 13:18 is the first time in the Bible where the 144,000 are being described in detail: “Then I looked, and behold, a Lamb standing on Mount Zion, and with Him one hundred and forty-four thousand, having His Father’s name written on their foreheads…” (Revelation 14:1).

    Now if you add up all three numbers by counting 666 by moving the “+” symbol around, it would be 72+72+18=162. What is interesting about the number 162, is, if you divide 144,000 by 162, you get 888. The name of Jesus in Greek gematria adds up to 888. Revelation 14:1 not only mentions the 144,000, but also the Lamb who is Jesus.

    Applying the same format that I used with calculating the number 666, in which I got the numbers 144 and 162, they also bring interesting results bringing us to the number 18:

    – 14+4=18*

    – 16+2=18*

    – 1+4+4=(9), 1+6+2=(9), (9+9)=18*

    – 1+44=(45), 1+62=(63), (4+5)=9, (6+3)=9, 9+9=18* | (45+63)=108, 10+8=18*

    – 14+4=(18), 1+44=(45), (1+8)=9, (4+5)=9, 9+9=18* | (18+45)=[63] | 16+2=(18), 1+62=(63), (1+8)=9, (6+3)=9, 9+9=18* | (18+63)=[81] | [6+3]=9, [8+1]=9, 9+9=18* | [63+81]=144

    – 1+4+4=(9), 14+4=(18), 1+44=(45), (9+18+45)=[72] (any two combinations of (9, 18, 45, and 72 will add to 18*) | 1+6+2=(9), 16+2=(18), 1+62=(63), 9+18+63=[90] (any two combinations of (9, 18, 63, and 90 will get you 18*) | [7+2]=9, [9+0]=9, 9+9=18* | [72+90]=162

    Now what is interesting about the number for Jesus, 888, is that if you apply this same formula, you get 8+8+8=24. Why the number 24? Revelation chapter 4 tells us there are 24 elders seated around the throne of God. This is the same throne where Jesus sits.

    Now if you take 8+8+8=24, and 8+88=96, and 88+8=96, you get 24+96+96=216. Take 144,000 divided by 216 and you get 666. Remember that this was the same exact formula to get the number 162 out of counting 666 that brought about the number 888 when dividing 144,000 by 162. It is perpetual.

    With using the same formula of counting by adding the “+” symbol in between the numbers, why do all these numbers relate in such a way?

    Another interesting point to note is that if you add up all the numbers from 1 to 36, it totals 666. The number 36, as in three sixes? Could this be a hint that we should add up three sixes instead of perceiving the number as six-hundred sixty six?

    So what could this mean? Well we know in this world we are identified by numbers in various forms. From our birth certificate to social security, as well as our drivers license, being identified based on a system of rulership. So it is possible that this RFID microchip will contain a new identification that has a total of 18 characters. Could this be the name of the beast, the number of its name? The beast system that is identified by 18 characters? This would fit scripture that speaks of a mark that we must have to buy or sell in our right hand or forehead, and that it also contains the number of the beast, during a future cashless money society.

    Revelation 13:11-15 tells us that a false prophet will rise up deceiving many to take the mark of the beast because of the miracles he does before men. At all costs do not take it!

    “Then a third angel followed them, saying with a loud voice, “If anyone worships the beast and his image, and receives his mark on his forehead or on his hand, he himself shall also drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out full strength into the cup of His indignation. He shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels and in the presence of the Lamb. And the smoke of their torment ascends forever and ever; and they have no rest day or night, who worship the beast and his image, and whoever receives the mark of his name” (Revelation 14:9-11).

    Did you hear about the lady from a major media outlet who reported a major event occurring approximately 20 minutes before it actually happened?

    It’s time we know the truth.

    A reporter from BBC reported the collapse of World Trade Center 7 on September 11th 2001 approximately 20 minutes before it actually!

    Remember, WTC 7 did not get hit by anything, so there would be no reason to assume it would collapse. But she didn’t report on assumption, but that it already did collapse!

    What could this mean? The only logical explanation is that the power that orchestrated 9/11 is the same power that controls the major media outlets!

    Don’t believe me? Watch the broadcast yourself uploaded on YouTube titled: “BBC Reports 911, WTC 7 Collapse BEFORE it Happens”

    It gets even worse…

    Did you know there is other footage they don’t want us to see twice? I’m speaking of footage on the day of September 11th 2001 during the time the planes hit both Trade Towers. Eye witness reports say the following concerning the planes:

    – “No, it wasn’t a commercial airliner”
    – “…but it didn’t have any markings on it that I saw”
    – “no emblems, no logos”
    – “It definitely did not look like a commercial plane”
    – “I did not see any windows on the sides”
    – “It was a black plane, it looked like a fighter jet”
    – “It was black, it looks like a military plane”
    – “It was a military plane”

    This video also shares testimonies from firefighters who share their experience being in the world trade towers as bombs were exploding(to weaken the structure of the buildings to cause the free fall collapse).

    As a terrorist, how could you smuggle bombs into the trade towers with all of its security systems which includes bomb sniffing dogs? Also, if terrorists did plant the bombs, then why weren’t we told about the bombs?!

    You can watch a video of this on YouTube by titled: “9/11 – THE FOOTAGE THEY DIDN’T LET YOU SEE TWICE (9/11 2001 Documentary)”

    What about the attack on the Pentagon? Was it really a plane that hit it, or something else, maybe a missle?

    Why did the FBI go around and confiscate camera footage from the surrounding buildings not releasing them to the public when they clearly showed us the planes that hit the world trade towers?

    Why was the only footage released to the public from one of the most heavily guarded buildings in the world low quality footage showing only five frames at about one frame per second?

    The U.S. Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld admitted the day before the attack that the Pentagon was missing 2.3 trillion dollars. Could this attack on the Pentagon have anything to do with covering up that information?

    So where am I going with all of this? What’s the purpose of this major event that occurred on September 11th 2001? Why did we go to war with Afghanistan and Iraq?

    David Rockefeller is quoted to be saying:

    “Some even believe we are part of a secret cabal working against the best interests of the United States, characterizing my family and me as ‘internationalists’ and of conspiring with others around the world to build a more integrated global political and economic structure–one world, if you will. If that’s the charge, I stand guilty, and I am proud of it.” – David Rockefeller, Memoirs

    Another video to watch is an infamous interview done with movie producer Aaron Russo titled, “Aaron Russo RFID Human Implant Chip”

    Aaron Russo produced such movies as Mad as Hell, Trading Places, and America: Freedom to Fascism. He gained the attention of a man named Nick Rockefeller who saw the movie Made as Hell and knew Aaron was running for governor of Nevada. Knowing the impact Aaron was having on society, who being a freedom fighter standing for the constitution of the United States, Nick sought to befriend him to subtly recruit him into his secret society.

    Aaron shares what Nick had told him:

    “He’s the one who told me 11 months before 9/11 ever happened that there was going to be an event. He never told me what the event was going to be…and out of that event we were going to invade Afghanistan to run pipelines from the Caspian Sea. We are going to invade Iraq to take over the oil fields to establish a base in the middle east, and make it all part of the New World Order…”

    “I remember he was telling me how he was going to see soldiers looking in caves for people in Afghanistan and Pakistan and all these places. And there was going to be this war on terror, where this is no real enemy, and the whole thing is a giant hoax. But it is a way for the government to take over the American people…”

    Aaron asked Nick, “What’s the end goal? And he said the end goal is to get everyone chipped to control the whole society. To have the bankers, the elite people controlling the world…”
