TAP Announces New Slate of Board Members

By Bill Jacoby

At its April 7th meeting, the Truth Action Project (TAP) held its annual election of board members and officers.  New board member Chuck Fall of Portland, OR was elected President, and Dan Hennen of Minneapolis was named Chairman of the Board while retaining his position as Treasurer.  John O'Malley of Maryland was elected Secretary.     


Other returning board members are JB Hockersmith of Atlanta; Matt Van Slyke of Chicago; and Bill Jacoby of Claverack, NY.  In addition to Chuck Fall, one other new board member was added:  Michael Zarzano of Sarasota, Florida.


Surveying the composition of the new board, Hennen remarked “Our Board of Directors is a diverse group of leaders within the 9/11 Truth Community.  Not only will they be mentors to our volunteers, but also ambassadors of the Truth Movement." 


Hennen used the word "ambassador" advisedly; In the past year, TAP differentiated itself from other 9/11 Truth organizations, while maintaining its emphasis on the historical importance of 9/11.  Some board members who favored continued emphasis on the events that occurred on Sept. 11, 2001 stepped down, leaving a board committed to a more contemporary focus on the consequences of those events in shaping the major institutions of our nation and world:  the media, governments, intelligence agencies operating on and beyond the margins of public awareness, universities and research institutions, and popular culture. 


Incoming President Chuck Fall commented, "I am looking forward to working with the TAP Board and members of the media/marketing team to help TAP grow as an organization. I am not sure what it will take to do this, but we are going to be doing basic stuff, putting out original media and highlighting that of others to make our point that “truth demands action” and that “we the people” need to do the heavy lifting of getting a truth message our into the public eye."


While some in the 9/11 Truth Movement do not see connections between 9/11 and aspects of the current Covid phenomenon and election allegations previously championed by Democrats, TAP is now the first 9/11 "origin" organization to focus on commonalities among these "paradigm-shifting events."  Bill Jacoby and Matt Van Slyke became "9/11 aware" as volunteers for Architects and Engineers for 9/11 Truth.  J. B. Hockersmith likewise volunteered for AE911Truth, and Mike Zarzano saw early on the implausibility of the official narrative.  Each has expressed his activism in unique ways, and most have reached out to other movements where the hand of domestic psychological warfare and media infiltration by government is discernable.


A glance at the current Board members makes clear their "Truth Movement" pedigree.  John O'Malley and Dan Hennen were active in local 9/11 Truth organizations that remain active 15 to 20 years later. Van Slyke has developed detailed blueprints and exhibits for a "Truth Booth" that is being marketed to local groups at cost.  Hockersmith has used his video production background to produce content for the Lawyers Committee for 9/11 Inquiry, a group of which Jacoby was a founding board member.


However, the current board is united in seeking to spread awareness of how the true story of 9/11 has been obscured, and accountability avoided, by methods similar to those being used today to silence and discredit people who question the Official Narrative of Covid-19.  These include doctors who successfully used repositioned drugs to treat Covid 19; researchers looking into the possibility--or likelihood-- that Covid-19 was a byproduct of gain-of-function bioweapons research; and dissidents who believe that such research, funded by the Defense Department and NIH, was partly carried out in such unlikely places as Wuhan and Ukraine, for both weapons development and biodefense.  


As Hennen indicated, the board's diversity, almost equally divided between people who grew up identifying with the Left and the Right, rather than being an obstacle, is very helpful as the organization seeks to help America see beyond the divide-and-conquer strategy that defines American politics and media.  In 2022, with the Left outraged by efforts to prove electoral fraud in the November 2020 elections, TAP Board members recall the videos of Democratic Congressional testimony criticizing previous elections and especially electronic voting machines in earlier elections, and find remarkable similarities to today’s allegations.  


Do our intelligence agencies interfere in domestic politics, even tipping the scales, sometimes to the Left, sometimes to the Right?  If so, what determines whether they oppose a Gore or Kerry one year, or a Trump a few years later?  How should we think about the investments of DoD's In-Q-Tel venture capital firm in many of Silicon Valley's most successful and culture-pervasive companies?  Or the decades of investments by the Defense Advance Research Projects Agency (DARPA) in mind control?  Do such questions help explain how America could be drawn into endless wars in Afghanistan, Iraq, and elsewhere, often using Al Qaida veterans as surrogates?  Into developing and possibly deploying bioweapons against nations not at war with us?  Do they help us understand how public support for such policies is maintained even as they remain secret?


The new TAP Board is determined to build a grassroots constituency for public scrutiny of the underpinnings of secret warfare, domestic surveillance and mind control, and related phenomena as first showcased in 9/11; and, thanks to a successful cover-up, quite possibly at work today to destroy the American freedom and civil liberties.
