  1. One thing I suggest is to have all these wide freeways (especially along very populated areas) be lowered like 288 and I-10 going west (within the loop,) so they collect most of the flood water.  

  2. Agree, same as what Skanska did with Capitol Tower, they're doing here.  They will surely post up images of the tower to be built for phase two, to help advertise the site for future development.  Again, as they did for Capitol Tower, and for Six Houston Center for that matter.






    I counted 11 stories, so that means it will be 41 stories?  Sure hope it's taller, as in, 50 floors tall like it was originally.

    Office vacancies are rising in downtown Houston as energy firms, such as Shell Oil, have downsized or relocated altogether. The downtown office availability rate has reached 16.5 percent, according to CBRE, which recently said in its year-end report that it could take “three to five years” for downtown vacancy to subside to a normal level. In addition, Hines is completing its 1 million-SF 609 Main tower this month. And Skanska is expected to begin vertical construction this year on its 750,000-SF Capitol Tower, atop the building’s already built foundation, which is about four blocks from the Six Houston Center site.

    HOUSTON – Six Houston Center, a proposed downtown skyscraper, is still on the drawing boards, but it’s too soon to start building the new office tower, says the project’s developer, John Goff, chairman of Fort Worth-based Crescent Real Estate Equities.
    “We have no immediate plans (to build the Six Houston tower). We’d need to see a full recovery before we would consider it, “ Goff told Realty News Report in an exclusive interview.

    In downtown Houston, Goff has been planning to build 6 Houston Center, a proposed 30-story office tower at Walker and Caroline streets. It’s a follow-up to the 5 Houston Center that Crescent completed in 2002. But it’s likely to be a few years before 6 Houston Center gets going, due to the softness in the Houston office market.

    Texas Leasing Magnate: The Q & A with Chip Colvill


    Realty News Report: What about downtown Houston? Is it getting better?
    Colvill: Actually the downtown market is probably one of the best submarkets in the city right now in terms of market strength.  Unlike west Houston, the CBD has not yet seen any major sublease space hit the market and most of the top tier buildings are over 93% leased with very strong tenant bases.  There is availability in some of the lower tier Class A buildings but some of this space has been known for a while, so it has not impacted the current market either way. Our firm handles the leasing of 33% of the Class A office buildings in the CBD and we are seeing strong leasing activity, particularly at 609 Main, 811 Louisiana, 1415 Louisiana, and 708/712 Main, that have availability.
    Realty News Report: Your firm is handling leasing for Hines’ 1 million square foot spec building under construction downtown — 609 Main at Texas. How’s it going? Will you make some big news soon?
    Colvill: We are getting close to announcing our first tenant and have strong interest from several mid-size and large tenants.  The building delivers at the end of 2016 and will be unsurpassed in terms of quality and amenities.  It is one of two multi-tenant buildings in the U.S. that is being developed with raised flooring for under floor air distribution, so we are seeing a lot of prospective tenant excitement about that.  Many of the largest corporations that have built headquarters buildings recently like Shell, Devon, and Exxon have structures with raised flooring. This is the wave of the future.  Hines is an awesome client for developing what will be the highest quality office building in downtown Houston; this has been a very fun project.  The building also will have a state-of-the-art fitness center and conference center in prime space on the second floor. We are also seeing extremely positive response to the amenity offerings.

  7. When you look at the last two presidents, any politician will be crazy not to run for the office.   I mean Jeff Bush is running (officially or not), and Hillary too, so why not him?  He's a warmonger, he's loved by the neo-cons, so he has a promising chance.  


    Who cares if he's no good, he can raise money.  Plus you lie your way to a victory, like Harry Reid lied about Romney to help Obama win in the last election.  So long as you win, that's all that matters in the end, who cares how you do it.  You can even admit you lied and get away with it, so anything is possible.

  8. In short. Yes they do these types of exercise all the time in many different locations, at all times of the day. at all types of weather, and all times of the year. They do these exercises because they can and because they should. They don't have to tell the public about it because its none of the public's business for very good reason because like anyone who is all the sudden learning about something for the very first time and has no knowledge about the history or context about what is going on....they freak out. They also don't need to tell anyone because the whole point of doing these exercises is to do it without the enemy knowing about it.


    They should do these drills and exercises, we're the world's policemen and are proud of that.  But they have to tell the public about these exercises when doing them outside military bases (which they admit is not the norm).  Accidents do happen, so it's better to be cautious about it.  I don't care what they do in military bases, like you said, it's not the public's business and that's what the bases are for; to train and play war games.  However in this case, the public now knows as they should, so can the public take pictures and load them up on facebook or twitter?  How about taking video showing our special op soldiers conducting their actions in the cover of night?  I would say they can, so what really is the purpose of doing these exercises if they are legitimately being done to prepare our soldiers to fight America's enemies?  Since we will expect this and can see what's going on, anyone can document this crap and post it on the internet.  And I sure as hell don't want to hear anyone blame the people if they do just that. I'm hoping many people do, so they never attempt this bullshit psyop on us again!


  9. I would say this whole exercise or drill outside a military base is completely insane, and unnecessary.  Best case, this is about conditioning people to see troops out in public.  I for one don't want to see troops, Apache helicopters, military/armored vehicles or anything military related out in public.  This is not Iraq nor is this country a war zone.  Another scenario, this government is gearing itself for a large-scale war with who knows, Iran, Russia, the list of potential foes is long.  Another case, this is to practice imposing martial law (which only a military can do) due to another "9/11" attack coming (probably staged once again) or a great economic downturn that could result in large scale looting and rioting like in Baltimore (and expect a stand-down if that occurs, again like in Baltimore).  Drills also serve as a way to cover up an attempt to pull a dirty stunt on the American citizenry (example, a drill was taking place when the Boston Bombings happened).  I'm glad more people are learning about this so if something bad happens, you'll know who to blame.





  10. I know that doesn't answer a whole lot of questions for WTC7, but that at least is the physics behind the Twin Towers.


    WTC 7 is the biggest smoking gun and to believe the false narrative that ordinary office fires resulted in a total, virtual free fall collapse (like we saw with the Houston Club building) of a steel frame building is the biggest joke of them all.


    I'll repeat it again, the 1993 WTC attacks were planned and carried out with the help of the FBI!!!  The defense of the patsy terrorists were denied the evidence of the FBI's involvement!!!  And the FBI scum had the nerve to express remorse not because they killed 6 people, but because it was very few people!!!!  And they expressed the same sentiment after 9/11!!!  FBI officials were saying we need another 9/11!!!  Look at the video below to see what I mean. 



    This is the mindset of some in the FBI and in other agencies, they understand that without a 9/11 or "Pearl Harbor" style attack were many people get killed, the things that they want will never get accomplished.  Because of this false flag, things like the unconstitutional Patriot Act got passed to fight terrorism.  Now it's used against the citizenry which was the intent all along!  They spy on everyone, they go beyond collecting metadata, they know everything about everyone, they can blackmail people if they wish, but I'm suppose to believe that it's all for our security. Ha ha ha!


    We are less safe, we are less free, we're bankrupt, war is breaking out everywhere (as the military-industrial complex wanted) and terrorists are killing people all over.  Speaking of being bankrupt, the Federal Reserve won't even raise interest rates, and they won't even hint as to when they will.  Could it be that they never will and instead will impose negative interest rates?  Anyways, expect more deadlier attacks like a dirty bomb going off, I mean there's already drills practicing that scenario.  And when it happens, I predict another stand-down because like in 1993, you can't force intel agents to do the right thing and save lives!  Ha ha ha, this is just too damn funny! 


    We already have terrorists in the country (yup, we know who they are but won't do anything to stop them), we have nukes going missing, and the northern & southern borders are wide open.  The war on terrorism is like the war on poverty (government policies reward poverty with the welfare state and punish productivity with taxes), or the war on drugs (government bring drugs into the country from places like Afghanistan, they profit from it, and lock people up for a long time just for using them).  It's a war where both sides are managed by the feds, and is a weapon used against us; enough already!  

  11. It seems to me that the conspiracy theories were from people that really, really, hated the Bush administration...


    Bush is a warmongering, unconstitutional murderer, but so is Obama.  Just today he announced that a drone strike killed an American and another hostage by accident.  It was an honest mistake and he was unaware of the strike.  How convenient for this proven liar and the rest of the liars in government to say they knew nothing, they remember nothing, they never thought it could happen, blah blah blah.  And it doesn't matter to the dumb American people sadly, because they believe that 9/11 changed everything.  It's all in the name of homeland security.  


    Like I keep saying, they keep getting away with it even when caught murdering Americans.  This country is so screwed up.

  12. I agree. This was to big of an event to cover-up. No way our government could have been involved without something slipping out and no way individuals could been involved without something coming out by now. I agree, two planes causing that much destruction does not seem possible. While watching events unfold that fateful morning the LAST thing I thought of was the buildings collapsing. I'm sure it was the last thing on the police and firefighters minds responding also. But it did happen and hopefully we shall learn from it. 


    I grew up with the Kennedy assassination. In my early years I could not believe Oswald acted alone. How could one man kill the president of the United States? Yet over 50 years later there is no evidence to support a conspiracy. Oswald was just a nut job who got lucky. 


    But I digress. I don't want to start in on more conspiracy theories. Even though their kind of fun they just aren't realistic. 


    I agree in that 9/11 would be difficult to cover-up by our government if they did it, even though we do have whistleblowers in all areas of our government pointing out a cover-up.  So my thought is this, if this was planned out, would it be impossible for anyone to believe that the job was instead given to an ally to do?  Saudi Arabia perhaps?  How about Israel?  I mean both Saudi and Israeli citizens were detained before, during and after 9/11, and with good reason too.  But the higher-ups stopped that ball from rolling, like they needed to.  And conveniently, a passport of one of the 9/11 hijackers was found INTACT to solve the case in record time, like they did for the 93 WTC attack.  Ha ha ha! 


    Anyways, my point is that you don't let your people do it, but let someone else do it.  That way, you can say with some assurance that you didn't do it, and you cover-up leads that point to your allies that did.  Simple enough to do, and who in Israel or Saudi Arabia would blow the whistle on their own country, only to have it be blown away by the US in response!?  No one would, so you keep your mouth shut.

  13. The presence of fire doesn't necessarily dictate building problems, it's the heat in that fire. A house fire could gut the interior of a house but it can be restored by sanding down burned floors and doing a few comparatively minor renovations. A smaller, but HOTTER fire could do the same damage. The HEAT given off by the fires at the main WTC buildings were probably the bigger factor in the WTC 7 collapse. And secondly, there's no such as a "perfect demolition job". In controlled demolitions, a "perfect" job is to completely demolish the building they're supposed to get and don't hit anything else or let anyone get hurt. I spent the last couple of minutes while typing this to look at a few building demolitions. The Houston Club kinda had this neat twisting effect going down, the Plaza Hotel had one side start to crumble while the elevator/stairs shaft went the other way, Kyle Field had the big concrete thing crash into the ground while the sides went, the Prudential went down with the biggest chunk kind of started falling, the Macy's Building kind of crumpled INSIDE on itself, they're all very different. ALL of them have the BOOM BOOM BOOM and the subsequent smoke of the TNT coming out that was carefully laid after the building was gutted.

    I'm not even a demolitions expert and came up with all that.


    WTC 7 came down in free-fall unto itself.  No way office fires alone would do that.  It was a pretty damn good demolition job, and you can even see explosions work their way up the face of the building before it fell.  Yup, it was blown up!


    Drills happen all the time. In 2004, they did a hurricane scenario in Louisiana called Hurricane Pam, a slow-moving Category 3 hurricane that caused storm surge on levees. In 2005, Hurricane Katrina hit, so it only makes sense Hurricane Katrina was masterminded by the Bush administration to cause panic and discord, right? Right?



    The Hurricane Katrina aftermath was a disaster like the whole 9/11 event was, and a stand-down happened on both events.  So you know what, forget the drills!!!




    The 1993 transcripts do offer an intriguing look into dealing with informants, but that information has been public for the last 20 years. The best I can find related to that when dealing with reputable (read: real) sources is that the FBI probably bungled an early chance to stop the bombing at an early point. I don't know how the whole "the bombing was done with the knowledge and direction of the FBI" thing came from, but it was probably from the same place about Barack Obama promoting gun control to create a New World Order.


    Like I mentioned before, the original plan was to supply the patsy terrorists with fake explosives.  But at the last minute, they decided to provide them with the real thing.  That was not a mistake, nor incompetence by the FBI, that was a deliberate decision they made!  They knew that the terrorists wanted to blow up the WTC and kill Americans, and the FBI saw this as the perfect opportunity to let it happen to further political agendas.  The FBI informant even protested the decision and told the FBI not to blame him if the attack was carried out!  So yes, the FBI was involved from the start, and even told the terrorists where to park at the WTC!!!   Fact is the 93 WTC attack was a lie, and so was 9/11!


    Now who needs terrorists when you have criminals like the FBI on your side?

  14. I'm sorry but there was no conspiracy. Shoddy building construction, yes, but even with cutting corners and not always following building codes the buildings were never meant to withstand planes running into them. No building is.


    I agree fire can not melt or bend  steel but it can distort it and when your talking about "truss construction" it doesn't take much. Personally I don't believe truss construction should be allowed in ANY building but also realize they could not have built such a tall building without using light weight trusses because of the sheer weight. A lot of firefighter lives have been lost by truss construction. 


    If the World Trade Center had been built like the Empire State Building it would have probably sustained minimal damage. 


    I can see your points, but a plane did not hit WTC 7 and it came down just like the Houston Club building came down last year, like a perfect demolition job, in free-fall!   WTC 7 was a steel framed structure building, it had no trusses, there was no jet fuel, damage to the building was minimal and the fires were typical office fires.  


    Sorry but it was a false flag.  And by the way, like I mentioned before in another thread, the 1993 WTC attack was done with the knowledge and direction of the FBI!!!  That is a fact!!!  And you're telling me that the scum in that agency and the others like the CIA didn't know about these patsy terrorists!?  They not only knew, they provided visas to the hijackers so they could come in, 15 from Saudi Arabia.  Not the first time that has happened, prior to that we gave visas to many terrorists to come to America to train to fight the Soviets in the 80s.  And remember the August 6th memo?  Hell, even the Pentagon had a drill prior to September 11 to "practice" the response to a plane crashing into it!   And does anyone remember the truck stopped near the Washington bridge filled with explosives?  Does anyone find it wrong that Bush and Cheney didn't testify individually under oath with the 9/11 Commission?  What a joke.


    I can go on and on, and I sure hate hearing about 9/11, it's total bullshit.  Until these criminals in government get punished, don't expect to have any security.
