 Details about Speakers in Order of Appearance

Our mistress of ceremonies, Bonnie Faulkner produces and hosts Guns and Butter, a one-hour public affairs program on KPFA and WBAI radio stations that investigates the relationships among capitalism, militarism and politics, reporting on who wins and who loses when the economic resources of civil society are diverted toward global corporatization, war and the furtherance of a national security state.

Adam Green is a citizen journalist, independent filmmaker, political activist, and geopolitical researcher from San Diego. He holds a degree in business from California State University, East Bay, where he studied finance, marketing and psychology. In 2014, Adam Green founded the Know More News YouTube channel and resigned from his position with a telecommunications company at the heart of the military industrial complex. Adam has a relentless passion for truth and justice, which drives him to uncover lies and expose propaganda. He produced Conspiracy Theory Exposed for the 9/11 Truth Film Festival.

Mickey Huff is the director of Project Censored and president of the nonprofit Media Freedom Foundation. He has edited or coedited eight volumes of Censored (published by Seven Stories Press in N.Y.) and contributed numerous chapters to these works dating back to 2008.

Kevin ran for Congress in 2008, and has hosted multiple radio shows, including False Flag Weekly News.

Anthony J. Hall, Ph.D., is a tenured full professor at the University of Lethbridge. Last October he was illegally pulled from the classroom and suspended without prior arbitration on allegations that his scholarly commentaries on 9/11 truth may constitute “hate speech.” The university administrators took action against Prof. Hall partly because he connects Israel First partisans to the commission of the 9/11 crime and subsequent acts of false flag terrorism. Tony is currently a co-host, with Kevin Barrett, of the radio show False Flag Weekly News.

Byron Belitsos is an author, editor, journalist, and book publisher as well as a lifelong political activist.  He was an inaugural member of the board of 911Truth.org and produced the “9/11 Truth Convergence,” one of the first 9/11  truth conferences.

He is also a longtime friend and publicist for William Pepper.

Our master of ceremonies, Peter B. Collins, hosts THE peter b. collins SHOW. He has been passionate about radio, news, politics, and national and international issues since high school, and he has been on the air in the S.F. Bay Area since 1976.

Bruce C. Baird Jr. has a B.S. in chemical engineering from Texas A&M University, an M.A. in American studies from the College of William & Mary and a Ph.D. in history from the University of Florida. He worked for the ARCO Oil & Gas Company for five years, earned a teacher’s credential from the University of Alaska at Fairbanks, and was an assistant professor of history at the University of Alabama. After teaching high school history in Sacramento for fifteen years, he retired in June to devote his time to research, writing and activism. Bruce is a member of the Northern California 9/11 Truth Alliance.

William Pepper is a human rights lawyer most known for his defense of James Earl Ray in the trial for the murder of Martin Luther King, Jr. Pepper is also the chief attorney for Sirhan Sirhan and has worked for over a decade to get a ruling for a retrial for the murder of Senator Robert Kennedy. Pepper has represented governments and heads of state, and has appeared as an expert witness on international law issues. In his 2016 book The Plot to Kill King: The Truth Behind the Assassination of Martin Luther King, Jr., Pepper reveals dramatic new details of the night of the murder of Martin King, the trial, and why Ray was chosen to take the fall for a government-sanctioned assassination. His findings make the book one of the most important of our time—the uncensored story of the murder of an American hero that contains disturbing revelations about the obscure inner workings of our government and how it continues, even today, to conceal the truth. Bill Pepper has also been active in the 9/11 truth movement, including giving a keynote address at the historic 9/11 truth conference held in Chicago in 2006, and working closely with a distinguished team of lawyers now assembling a 9/11 legal strategy.

Films in Order of Appearance (with links to the online versions)

9/11 Suspects Produced by James Corbett, 2016. A six-part series of podcasts produced by The Corbett Report  that focuses on suspects who might have had a role in the crime of 9/11 or were involved in the cover-up of that crime. The first two podcasts examine Christine Todd Whitman, from the EPA, and Richard Baer, a former CIA case officer. The last four podcasts conclude the evening presentation by examining Philip Zelikow, Rudy Giulani, General Ralph Eberhart and the Dancing Israelis.

9/11 Inside Out: An Expert’s Guide to the 9/11 Conspiracy Produced by Jeremy Rys, 2016. A well-researched overview of the crime of 9/11, focusing on the individuals, firms and organizations that were in a position to “make it happen.”

NIST Fail! A Conspiracy Funhouse Visualization Produced by Stew Bradley, along with 19 other humorous films between 2011 and 2013 in the Stew’s Conspiracy Funhouse series. This film focuses on the shameful NIST Report on WTC 7.

Conspiracy Theory Exposed  Produced by Adam Green, 2017. This film is a shorter version of the widely viewed and highly rated documentary The Conspiracy “Theory” Conspiracy, which Adam Green produced in 2015 containing hundreds of news clips, declassified documents and incontrovertible evidence demonstrating the mainstream media’s propaganda campaign to marginalize and suppress “conspiracy theories.” Adam kindly produced this shorter version for the film festival.

Why Revisit 9/11? and Seven Countries in Five Years – The first clip is from the AE documentary 9/11 Explosive Evidence: Experts Speak Out, and highlights how 9/11 has been and is being used to pursue an imperialist military agenda and to curtail civil liberties.  In the second clip, General Wesley Clark shares in 2004 what he was told by a fellow ranking military officer in the weeks after 9/11 about plans to invade seven countries in five years.  Most of what he was told has already come to pass.

Calling OUT Bravo-7: Firefighters’ Perspectives of High-Rise Fires and 9/11 –Produced by Firefighters (2017). This is an abbreviated version of a longer film that focuses on fire physics and building designs. It explains why firefighters continue to battle high-rise fires without fear of sudden and complete building failure.

An Act of State – The Execution of Martin Luther King – A music video produced and performed by Vic Sadot, it was inspired by the work of William Pepper and his first book, An Act of State: The Execution of Martin Luther King.

Stand for the Truth: A Government Researcher Speaks Out Produced by Ted Walter for Architects and Engineers for 9/11 Truth, 2017. In August 2016, Peter Michael Ketcham, a former employee of the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), began looking into the reports his agency had released years earlier on the collapse of the World Trade Center. What he found shook him to the core. Ketcham tells his story, and inspires us to believe that we can muster the courage to confront the truth — and heal the wounds of 9/11.
