May 15, 2009, Los Angeles, CA – Vice President Joseph Biden and LA Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa took a tour of a community housing project of the Esperanza Community Housing Corp.

Jeremy Rothe-Kushel and Bruno Bruhwiler of WACLA Media sat among other members of the local press in the glaring sun in wait for the press conference scheduled to begin after the Vice President and the Mayor toured one of the buildings renovated by the Esperanza Community Housing Corporation. Secret Service officers were present in abundance in the 10′ wide corridor where we were crammed behind residents of the renovated apartment complex. All of us were in close quarters with each other for at least one hour, and we all developed a courteous and jovial relationship with each other. The folks from Fox News were the most vocal, and they were not shy about their dislike for Biden and Obama. Later it turned out that one of the Fox reporters had a hot and healthy obsession with asking the Vice President about Karl Rove. One woman, an admittedly former journalist turned passionate advocate, claimed that although we were sitting in the scorching sun, our current position would probably be envied by most everyone in the rest of the country. It was not entirely clear whether she was referring to the Southern California weather or our proximity to a representative of the Hope and Change Administration™.

The same woman facetiously reminded us that, if we were to believe some of the pundits during the campaign, Obama is, after all, a Muslim, a Marxist and a terrorist. Jeremy clarified that Obama had been associated with a former Weatherman, but went on to inform her that a crucial piece of information left out by the mass media was the infiltration and provocation of groups such as the Weathermen by the FBI’s Cointelpro and other elements of the ‘National Security State’ as a way of discrediting and subverting the larger movement for peace and justice. Bruno asked her if she had seen the documentary THE OBAMA DECEPTION and she shook her head, “What’s it about?” Nodding his head, and smiling profusely Bruno told her, “It’s about the people behind Obama, how they are deceiving us, and how Obama and Hillary disappeared together during the election. You gotta see it.” She enthusiastically wrote the title down in her notes. Jeremy then showed her a printout about the nefarious connections of many of the people throughout the Obama administration. She looked at the printout cautiously but with wheels clearly spinning.

We continued making conversation with reporters about the event, with cameramen about their cameras, and with everyone about the glaring sun. A man, who later turned out to be an aid for Congressman Becerra, was clutching a bunch of pocket-sized Constitutions. Jeremy yelled out. “Are those Constitutions in your hand?” He answered in the affirmative. Jeremy warned him that, in the age of the ‘PATRIOT ACT,’ many law enforcement agencies have been alerted that anybody carrying the Constitution is a potential terrorist. After the event, the man made sure to remind us that anyone can contact their congressperson’s office and get free copies of the Constitution and the Bill of Rights, many of which he brings to schools when he visits.

Eventually, with the direct sunlight beaten back by the southwest side of the building, the tour ended, bringing the central figures into the exterior hallway at the opposite end where a podium and microphone were set up. Mayor Villaraigosa was introduced and spoke warmly about the Esperanza Housing Corporation, said many good things about Biden and the Obama administration in general, and commended himself for bringing home funds from the most recent stimulus package (bail out package). Congressman Becerra spoke next, also complimenting each on what a great person they are and what a great job they are doing. Other individuals took a turn to speak, including the secretary of HUD, Ron Simms. Then Vice President Biden took his turn celebrating each personality. He also talked about the humble surroundings he grew up in, and the value of opportunities for all. He began reading from computer teleprompters to either side of him, but unfortunately for him, his audience was constrained in a long narrow space directly in front of him, so as he turned to each teleprompter, left then right then left, to read his speech, he was facing to the walls on either side. Funny! He spent a good bit of his speech talking to the walls.

After the last words were spoken, it was obvious that the press would not have an opportunity to ask questions, so Jeremy and Bruno moved quickly, crammed against the wall, toward the podium in an effort to create an opportunity to ask a question. We were at an advantage with our hand held cameras, and we actually found ourselves right next to Biden as he moved chairs aside to fulfill requests for photos with residents in attendance. The moment generated many smiles and laughter, and genuine joy could be seen in the faces of all the residents. Biden stood and addressed the residents, and the instant that the photo op was finished, Jeremy engaged him: “Vice-President Biden, I’m Jeremy Rothe-Kushel with WACLA Media.” Biden said, “If I had your hair, I would be President!” Jeremy couldn’t disagree with that and offered up that Biden could have some since there was “enough to go around.” Then it was time to get serious and Jeremy jumped right into the preliminary part of his question.

“It seems like with the kind of work that Esparanza and communities around the world are doing in terms of rejuvenating themselves, we could all rejuvenate our communities. So, I want to ask you about the role, the foundational role, [that] restoring the rule of law has in terms of rejuvenating our economy… because there was a recent scientific paper that came out, I don’t know if you know about it, but it basically is conclusive that the World Trade Center was blown up by very high, advanced explosives and it should have been and continue to be the very highest news story right now. So, my question to you is, when are you and President Obama going to ask the Department of Justice to start a criminal investigation in terms of who produced this advanced nano-thermite and who put it in the World Trade Center?”

The space had gone silent, and every single person, including the press, the residents, the politicians and the Secret Service were listening intently to Jeremy’s question, and they all could not help but witness Biden’s discomfort and his loss for words. At this point Biden asked to see the report and took it into his hands to look at it.

With the paper in the Vice-President’s hands, Jeremy finished up the question by asking: “And if you all are not going to do that, is it possible for We the American People to trust you with our economy if we can’t trust you with restoring the rule of law?” Biden, obviously caught in an awkward moment, handed the scientific paper back to Jeremy, and said “Yes,” then said “thank you” to everybody, and quickly turned to leave. While leaving the scene, offered up a little bit more in terms of his ambiguous answer. “That it’s possible to trust—you can trust us.”

Unsatisfied with the evasiveness and ambiguity of the Vice President’s answer, Jeremy continued to call out to Biden, asking him to clarify his position in regards to the 9/11 cover-up, but Biden did not clarify his position any further. “Are you going to do an investigation? Sir, are you part of the treasonous cover-up of 9/11 or are you going to help clear this up? Vice President Biden, this is about treason under Article III, Section 3 of the Constitution.”

Today we managed to get the only question asked, and every single person present walked away from that event with Jeremy’s question about scientific proof for military grade explosives used in the destruction of the Twin Towers on their mind. On our way out, a reporter complained to Jeremy that “it doesn’t matter what story you are after you should always keep it with the agenda of the moment,” to which Bruno’s pleasant response was, “When is 9-11 ever the agenda of the moment?” The reporter bowed his head and walked away.

Out front, the Secret Service relegated all of us off to the side, and we waited for Biden and Villaraigosa to finish saying their goodbyes to the organizers of the community and the event. After a few last minute pictures, they were whisked away in a convoy of hybrid Yukons, trailed by their entourage, including a jeep filled with urban-warfare soldiers. Bruno proceeded to confront a reporter from the local ABC affiliate as to why the mainstream media and local news refuse to cover the controlled demolitions committed on 9-11. “They did cover it” he muttered. “They covered the controlled demolitions committed on 9-11?!!” Bruno was excited to hear this, but the ‘reporter’ shrunk away after that.

Out on the sidewalk, Jeremy handed an information pamphlet from Architects and Engineers for 9-11 Truth to LA County Supervisor Zev Yaroslavsky and invited him to come to the upcoming event Richard Gage AIA- founder of www.ae911truth.org – will be holding in Los Angeles on May 28th at 7pm at the Immanuel Presbyterian Church on Wilshire Blvd. Mr. Yaroslavsky graciously accepted the pamphlet and the invitation with seeming interest.

Members of the sniper team leaving the site strode by and Jeremy remarked to one of them that it looked like he had a guitar and that they were a band on their way to rock and roll. The sniper quietly chuckled.

Later, Jeremy presented a AE911truth pamphlet to Congressman Xavier Becerra, reminded the Congressman of their previous encounter a year earlier, and requested that the Congressman send someone from his office to attend the Richard Gage event. The Congressman said to contact his office with the exact details and he would have somebody attend.

As we stood in the street, smiles on our faces for having just had an intense experience of engaging high rank politicians about 9-11 and treason, the same Secret Service agent we had interacted with before the press conference came walking out. He smiled and pointed at us, “Great work guys!” then he saluted us! Yes, a Secret Service agent saluted us for asking the Vice President a hard question about scientific proof of the controlled demolition of the towers on 9-11. Bruno called out to him “Thank you! You did a great job running a smooth operation!”

With the truth action never over, Bruno handed out Oathkeepers cards to some of the remaining security personnel who we passed on our way to the car, and they took the cards, and looked at him with respect. It was a very good day.
