RACE FOR CONGRESS: Bill Fawell backtracks, clarifies position on controversial 9/11 remarks

Local News

Bill Fawell, running against U.S. Rep. Cheri Bustos (D-17), does not think controversial remarks regarding the 9/11 attacks make him a “conspiracy theorist.” His comments come after originally denying those statements were in his published book.

In New American Revolution: The Constitutional Overthrow of the United States Government, Fawell argues “a standard commercial implosion demolition” may have caused a building to fall during the 9/11 attacks. 

“Nothing hit this building, not a thing, and it fell entirely upon its own,” writes Fawell about one of the buildings. The book’s fourth chapter also implies the Pentagon was hit to rid of paperwork.

In an interview last week on WMBD News at Four, Fawell denied those claims were even in his book. However, the next day, he acknowledged by email those statements are in fact in New American Revolution and are consistent with his ideas. 

Fawell does not deny his thoughts on 9/11, but simply said he did not know those comments were in that book. He disagrees with the term ‘conspiracy theorist’, and does not think he deserves the title based on those comments.

“Really? One paragraph?  That makes me a conspiracy theorist?” wrote Fawell when asked about the his statements.

In August, Illinois GOP leaders pulled support of Fawell saying he appears to support conspiracy theories. However, according to the Dispatch-Argus, those decisions also focused on Fawell’s social media presence, including posts shared on his Elect Fawell Facebook page

Fawell, who ran unopposed in the Republican primary, believes members of both parties want to suppress his voice. 

“Is this what happens when a regular American runs for office and gets as far as I have?” wrote Fawell.

In our interview, he repeatedly mentions David Brock, founder of Media Matters for America, as a driving force against his campaign. Media Matters published multiple articles about Fawell’s statements and social media posts earlier this year.

Bustos is widely considered a favorite in this race, and has said she will run to become the fourth-ranked Democrat — if she is re-elected and her party wins majority of the House. 

When asked if he would consider running again, if not elected —  Fawell said ‘absolutely.’

Read the full excerpt regarding the 9/11 attacks in Fawell’s book, New American Revolution: The Constitutional Overthrow of the United States Government.

The book can be found on Amazon here.

Without question, it was probably the most visible attack against continental America by a foreign entity since the war of 1812. But Washington, DC spent only $15,000,000 investigating 9/11 on an accelerated time schedule, with excluded testimony, to explain just how three planes flown by Islamic extremist into the World Trade Center and the Pennsylvania countryside could have occurred despite international warnings to the FBI, CIA, and the cyber info catch-all net of the NSA. Pictures are worth a 1000 words, so go to YouTube and punch in “Building #7.” It’s the third building that went down with the twin towers on 9/11. Nothing hit this building, not a thing, and it fell entirely upon its own. If it looks like a standard commercial implosion demolition, it’s because that is exactly what it is. And if that is the truth??? It’s interesting to note that the clandestine branch of the CIA was housed on the top floor. No personnel were lost, but any and all documents were destroyed, just like a giant shredder.

The Pentagon was hit in a wing being remodeled (but few people), that held a mountain of paperwork regarding 1 trillion dollars which the Secretary of Defense, Donald Rumsfeld, was having trouble accounting for. That mountain of paperwork became a pile of ash.
