Debra Medina is a 9/11 Truther

Ok, her politician answer was that she didn’t have enough proof to take a side on whether or not the government had anything to do with causing the twin towers to fall. Really? How in the hell do you not take a side on that issue? I mean, you are running for the governor of Texas, and you still don’t know whether or not Osama Bin Laden ordered the attack on the twin towers? You don’t have all of the evidence?

Beck is not necessarily a fan of Rick Perry, but after the interview Beck changes his mind a bit:



“Rick I think you and I could french kiss right now!”

It’s only fair to post Medina’s response. I call BS:

I was asked a question on the Glenn Beck show today regarding my thoughts on the so-called 9/11 truth movement. I have never been involved with the 9/11 truth movement, and there is no doubt in my mind that Muslim terrorists flew planes into those buildings on 9/11. I have not seen any evidence nor have I ever believed that our government was involved or directed those individuals in any way. No one can deny that the events on 9/11 were a tragedy for all Americans and especially those families who lost loved ones.

The question surprised me because it’s not relevant to this race or the issues facing Texans. This campaign has always been about private property rights and state sovereignty. It is focused on the issues facing Texans. It is not a vehicle for the 9-11 truth movement or any other group.

The real underlying question here, though, is whether or not people have the right to question our government. I think the fact that people are even asking questions on this level gets to the incredible distrust career politicians have fostered by so clearly taking their direction from special interests instead of the people, whether it’s Rick Perry and his HPV mandate or Kay Hutchison and voting for the bank bailout. It is absolutely the right and duty of a free people to question their government. Texas does not need another politician who tells you what you want to hear, then violates your liberties and steals your property anyway. I fully expect to be questioned and to be held accountable as Governor, and that’s the underlying issue here: should people be questioning their government. And the answer is yes, they should be.

Now it seems like she’s lying and trying to change the subject. I think I preferred her when she was telling the truth. Well, sort of.

Oh well, I think she’s done. There’s no coming back from a blunder like this.

mstatedawg, could you please point me to the firefighter terminology that has the term 'pull it' in their own terms. I looked and looked and cannot find it. In fact, I found among many firefighters discussion that doesn't agree with this. I'm not saying it's not possible, but it's also not in the mainstream as a term they would use which would beg the question why would the owner of the trade centers use a term no one knows to describe ceasing interior operations without explaning what that means? Just leaves more questions. Again, my field is architecture, not firefighting so my expertise would be in understanding the nature of the structure and the likelihood that a structure like that could not only collapse, but pancake! I just know it's so unlikely especially 2 large towers and one small one all in the same way, you might want to get… Read more »

Now both Debra Medina and Kay Bailey Hutchison have disparaged Rick Perrys decision on HPV vaccines. As an RN who works with Adolescent students, my initial reaction was that Rick Perry was a very brave person to add HPV as a required vaccine in Texas. I was sad that he was forced to change that decision. It was BRAVE and it was RIGHT… and it would have eventually saved countless lives. I cannot see why anyone would oppose this safe vaccine. This was not, and need never be about any tacit approval of young girls becoming sexually active. No parent need present it in that light, and it was not promoted in that light by the vaccine manufacturer or the state government. This is about future health, and life and death issues. As a nurse, as a mother and as a school employee, if asked my opinion, I will always… Read more »

i think you are right, she may not be able to come back. i don't think she is a truther, i don't think she thinks America did 9/11 to itself, but she may think it is even bigger than that. a conspiracy that many governments were involved in the attack, not just one terrorist group. i was pumped to have a constitutionalist, non politician in the running, now i am not so sure.

Why are they not covering Sahara Palin that outright calls for a new 9/11 investigation? Sahara Palin said much more than Medina did. Glenn Beck is a Hippocrate. And turned her microphone off. Your coverage is B.S.!! Fire whom ever wrote this page!

Glenn spends all day showing us how the government lies to us and yet accepts the 911 commission report as the total truth? Glen this doesn't add up. There are a lot of outpoints and tons of evidence not covered in the report. No one that questions this report thinks that Bush, the cabinet and the congress all sat around and planned the attacks or had anything to do with them.

What many architects, engineers and demolition experts have said is the report doesn't add up. It does not cover lots of testimony and facts that have not been answered.

Glen Beck played his hand and proved he is an insider mouthpiece for the establishment and I have written him off as a real truth seeker.

Guess what? I'm one of those “industry professionals that have nothing to gain”. I'm not connected to anyone or anything dealing with 9/11. I have my engineering degree and license, and have had it for 10 years. I also question things, and I have thoroughly done my OWN research.

And WTC7 was hit by something – it's called debris from the collapse of WTC 1.

Do yourself a favor – go read this document: http://wtc.nist.gov/NCSTAR1/PDF/NCSTAR%201A.pdf

Poor Beck..Sexually confused.
Medina said she wasn't a truther, never has been. It's never been part of her agenda. but the folks who are saying “I'm not going to vote for her now”…
It's pretty funny..Pretending that you were going to vote for her to start with.
I'm guessing the attention will end up sending a few more votes her way.
She's made a lot of additional cash, since that night.

I completely agree with this comment from wkh. I used to consider myself a “conservative”. However, I feel that the whole liberal vs conservative controversy is destroying the country and is not the real problem. I don't see much real difference in either party. They are just using different “marketing” tactics to get themselves in office after which they all do about the same thing with the same agenda. I love how Medina answered the interview question and I so applaud her. I hate how the “conservative” radio talk show hosts are blasting her. Does anyone out there know of a radio talk show host that I can hear in the DFW area that does not blast her? I will no longer listen to Mark Davis on WBAP. I really would appreciate anyone's help on this. I am sick of Rush Limbaugh and the others as well. thank you,

First off, it wasn't a “moderate” fire. (Then again, that would depend on what your definition of “moderate” is. Even at 700 degrees Fahrenheit, the strength loss of steel is significant. There were pockets of the fire near the support columns that were twice to two-and-a-half times that. You do the math. You have to also take into account the sheer momentum of the impact of the plane into the building and what that can do to the floor and building support structure – mass*velocity – again, you do the math.

You don't get it, because obviously I definitely understand more engineering principles than you and your “truther” friends.

I don't think that Medina is a “911truther”.

I do believe that Glen is scared that he messed this up. For I will not here his show again until the elections. One thing that I did learn was, not to here him while choose my local government.

If I am bored, I may consider going back to him, but there are better shows out there.

Sage Are you a member or affiliated with some nazi group. Seems you subscribe to group think, support the government mandate or die, either physically or philosophically. Debra Medina was supporting the position of the 9/11 Commission themselves. They said they were lied to, deceived and has subpoenaed information tampered with or not submitted at all in violation of federal law. So how does this make anyone unfit for public office. I won't hold my breath waiting for a response. I just find it hard to believe that such ignorance actually has the capacity to get up in the morning and function, and actually survive. Fascinating.

You Said, 'Fat Chance. She said it, I report it.'
The title of this discussion board is, 'Debra Medina is a 9/11 Truther'.
I didn't hear her say she was a 911 truther? A more apt title would be 'Debra Medina doesn't immediately denounce 911 truthers as crazy.' But that wouldn't serve Becks purpose to discredit her as much as your title. I guess theres no need for professionalism if all you really want to do is be a Beck fanboy. You'll probably remove this ay.

Wake up folks even the 9/11 commsion agress with Debra do your research.Even Bush said Osama Bin Laden had nothing to do with the attacks. Check out the following articles. The co-chairs of the 9/11 Commission (Thomas Keane and Lee Hamilton) said that the CIA (and likely the White House) “obstructed our investigation”.http://www.nytimes.com/2008/01/02/opinion/02kea… The co-chairs of the 9/11 Commission also said that the 9/11 Commissioners knew that military officials misrepresented the facts to the Commission, and the Commission considered recommending criminal charges for such false statements, yet didn’t bother to tell the American people.http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/ar… 9/11 Commission co-chair Lee Hamilton says “I don’t believe for a minute we got everything right”, that the Commission was set up to fail, that people should keep asking questions about 9/11, that the 9/11 debate should continue, and that the 9/11 Commission report was only “the first draft” of history.CBS News: http://www.911podcasts.com/files/video/CBCSunda… The Senior Counsel… Read more »

You need to take this post down it is slanderous and completely off base. She was completely set up by Beck. Any American should have questions about such an event happening on US soil. Especially after the notable failure of the 9/11 commission. She did not say she thought the planes were drones flown by airforce officers and all of the passengers were offloaded and given free trips to the east indies for life. She simply said that there are questions that merit further investigation. People are still investigating Vietnam, WWII, WWI and other world events today, looking into unsolved problems or unanswered questions. All she is saying is that there are good questions being raised and they should be addressed. If you are buying into Beck's obvious tip of the hat to whoever called in the favor… you should perhaps look into the mirror as to who makes the… Read more »

Really disappointed Medina couldn't display a little knowledge on current and critical events. Glen offered her the votes of so many looking for an alternative to the current crop but she fell face down in dumb mud, admitting not even a cursory understanding of 9/11. Where have you been hiding Ms Medina? Or is being ignorant a tactic to capture the vote of the 18-30-ish?

I have always supported Glenn on his tv show and have not kept as close an ear to his radio show, however, when I heard this infantile response to Medina I got ill listening to the replays. The sad part about this whole ordeal is that Glenn has lost a considerable amount of credibility on his task of finding a true constitutional politician like Medina and do a better job at researching candidates before he interviews them-PS he did the same thing to Ron Paul:)

Glenn Beck is WRONG on this one…..and his comments after the show were rude. It's amazing that Rick Perry could be so good after all the garbage he's BEEN involved in, and she's wrong for just being open to the idea that there could be some corruption in the government. Glenn just lost my respect.

Glenn Beck is Rush Jr. Both are complete asses. Beck used to be somebody I liked to listen to. That is until he became a RNC poster boy. If you can't look at all of the 911 questions and evidence and not have doubts, you should look again. The woman was open to the idea that the government could have been involved, not necessarily the designers and operators of the whole operation. If you think your government is above such behavior, you really are lost.

Before anyone says it, I am not a liberal, not a conservative, not a democrat, and not a republican. These labels are dividing and counterproductive. I am a freedom loving patriot who is sick of the government secrecy, lies, and corruption.

Restore the republic!!

This is for those who are offended at the suggestion that U.S. government is complicit in 9/11. This is also for those who believe “sheeple” are so stupid that nothing can be done to wake them up… I am a conservative, voted for GW, even supported Patriot Act, etc. Sometime right after the 2004 election, I came across a free film on the internet entitled “Loose Change”. After watching it, I kept saying to myself “There's no way”. “There's no way”! I am a person of reasonable intellect, but no matter how hard I tried, I just couldn't get around some of the facts presented in that film. So, I was very intrigued, and looked into it more – searching online for documentaries on 9/11. The best description of this process I can think of is “Alice's Rabbit Hole” – or if you have ever seen the movie “The Matrix”… Read more »

And how do you anti-Islamic hotheads think that Muslim radicals are all backwards and retarded but somehow are so sophisticated as to have penetrated our intelligence?

Please just consider that – yes, obviously, Bush didn't plan 911 and Bill Kristol didnt plan it, but – networks within the intelligence community are capable of pulling it off.

If I asked you “Do you believe that the gov't or any faction within the gov't has purposely concealed information from other factions of the gov't or the public at large?”, what would you answer be? It would most certainly be YES, as I think it would be for any reasonable person. Well, that by its very definition would be a conspiracy. Calling someone a “conspiracy theorist” is really a way to discredit that person before the debate actually begins. Some people believe that Jesus walked on water, or that Moses really parted the Red Sea. I think those beliefs are just as absurd as you think the “9/11 truth” beliefs are. My point is that views and perspective are relative, and you basically come across as anti intellectual and compulsive in your responses. I encourage you to sit down, read, and educate yourself before engaging in these debates. One… Read more »

Alright, Glenn. I admit I blew it by posting an answer before I listened to the interview of D. Medina. She had no idea what she was talking about and just rambled on and on without really saying anything concrete. However, the remark you made about “french kissing” Perry left me uncomfortable. Otherwise you were spot on and tried to help her answer your question. (Maybe she doesn't know what a truther is).

Glenn,
It is far beneath you to mock Ms. Medina when she was a guest on your show. You don't have to agree with her and you can make that clear if you don't. She doesn't need a “conservative” to be asking lowball questions of her. She sounds rational to me. What made you ask if she was a “truther”? Do you have any evidence that she was? Next time engage brain before you engage mouth.

Glenn, I think it is beneath you to ask Ms Medina if she is a truther. She is running a tough campaign and she doesn't need anyone that is “conservative” asking lowball questions like this. If you don't agree with what she stands for, then ask straight out why she believes the way she does. You have the right to disagree but you don't have the right to make fun of a guest on your show.
