Taking flyers at 9/11
Streisand's hubby publicly questions official 9/11 story

Actor James Brolin, aka, `Mr. Barbra Streisand', has joined film director David Lynch in going public with his doubts about the official story behind 9/11.
"Brolin appeared as a guest on The View– Wednesday morning and according to emails we have been receiving in numbers, towards the end of the show the actor questioned 9/11 and urged the audience to check out the website www.911weknow.com, which is a website that purports to expose how the twin towers and Building 7, which wasn't hit by a plane, were brought down via controlled demolition." (www.prisonplanet.com, Dec. 6, 2000).
On the boobtube Brolin has played roles in the West Wing with Martin Sheen, who was the first celebrity to publicly advocate conspiracy theories about the terrorist attacks on September 11, 2001. Movies with Brolin include The Amityville Horror, Capricorn and the upcoming Rambo. In 2003, Brolin played President Ronald Reagan in the made-for-television movie "The Reagans" which featured an anti-Reagan slant.
Brolin offered no reason as to why he waited five years and three months to publicly question the official story behind 9/11, or why he followed in the footsteps of Lynch on the same day.
Lynch is the Oscar-nominated film director and cult icon who, with award-winning choreographer Robert La Fosse, joined influential business leaders during a Dec. 10, 2004 news conference that launched a $1-billion drive to build 100 "Peace Palaces" and a University of Peace in the U.S.
Maharishi Mahesh Yogi, the bearded, then 92-year-old guru and spiritual advisor to the Beatles, inaugurated 2004 as the Year of Peace.
To that end, the Maharishi said he was building some 3,000 "Peace Palaces" worldwide, including nine in Canada. A 2,000-square-metre Peace Palace was to have been constructed in Ontario in 2004.
To date, no one has been able to find it.
The Peace Mission aims "to create an influence of peace so powerful and pervasive that warfare and terrorism cease to exist."
The Maharishi has admitted that his inspiration for the Peace Palaces originates with 9/11.
Peace Palaces, a la the Maharishi, David Lynch and Company style, will also serve as "oases of peace" for America's stress-ridden cities. Each palace will provide a centre for 100 "peace-creating meditation experts" who will reduce social stress and promote coherence nationwide--something we all well know that George W. could never provide. The Peace Palaces will offer prevention-oriented community outreach programs in business schools, hospitals and prisons.
The founding father of Transcendental Meditation, the Maharaishi needs houses with huge rooms where "vedic flyers" can "take off together".
The brooms used by some Hollywood types will never do.
Investing in Peace Palaces will also do something that will make Al Gore happy: It can save the environment. According to the blueprint, "each palace will be surrounded by an organic farm that will produce food that will generate the profits that will pay bondholders from the Global Country of World Peace which will issue bonds. "People can purchase the bonds and pay 6 to 7 percent--"aiding world peace" in the bargain.
Lynch told Dutch television he thought WTC Building 7 was brought down via controlled demolition and that the Pentagon and Pennsylvania crash sites were suspicious due to the absence of evidence that a plane crashed at either location.
Like most 9/11 conspiracy theorists, Brolin and Lynch offer no hard evidence for their claims.
Brolin's wife, actress activist Barbra Streisand is a close friend of Rosie O'Donnell hostess of The View where he made his announcement.
Streisand, who finished the last concert in her 20-concert Farewell Tour in Los Angeles on Nov. 20, turned off some fans when she used a Bush impersonator in a comedy skit in each of the concerts.
As one pundit who heard about Brolin making his doubts about 9/11 public told Canada Free Press: "We always knew who wore the pants in that family."
