National Trauma, Church Drama: The Cultural Politics of Christian Fear

by Ethan Blue

Bad Subjects

Issue #72, February 2005

Red states and blue states, the heartland versus the decadent city. Like many, I’m wary of these too-easy distinctions for the political effects they create, and the illusion of a homogeneous religious movement based on so-called “family values.” But, living in central Virginia for the past few years, if in the admittedly “blue” town of Charlottesville, I knew that the politics of the Christian right were very real, and very serious factors in people’s visions of what America should be.…

Thoughts on Being More Effective

Editor’s Note:
A wise meditation on tactics and approaches for the months ahead. We quibble a bit with Malaprop’s see/hear/speak-no-evil advice re 9/11 disinfo and dunces, but agree that simply distancing oneself from the phony theories is usually better than noisy demonization. Still we do occasionally have to show that we too can tell wheat from chaff.

EVERYTHING points to a frame-up, complicity–you name it. There is enough evidence for them to swing from a rope a 100 times.…

Dear Friends & Allies,

I’d like to share the following:

This is a brief report from the 3 day National Assembly of United for Peace & Justice attended by 7 core 9-11 activists (Ken Jenkins, Gabriel Day, Becky Medcalf, Steve Cassilly, Janice Matthews, Mike Berger and Phylis Gilbert).

Introducing the Constitution Restoration Act

— Say hello to Taliban America and goodbye to godless judges, courts and law.

by W. David Kubiak

March 24, 2005

Tired of waiting for the Second Coming to enforce Christ’s rule on Earth? Fortunately, so is your Congress and they know how to “bring it on.”

Just when you thought the corporatist/Christian Coalition had milked the 9/11 “surprise” for all it was worth in powers, profits and votes, we regret to report that you may have to think again.…

We’re all paranoid

By Steven T. Jones
SF Bay Guardian

Sure, the people with the 9/11 conspiracy theories are a little odd. But not everything they’re saying is entirely crazy.

THE GRAND LAKE Theater in Oakland was filled almost to capacity March 10, just as the Guild Theatre in Menlo Park was the night before and the Herbst Theatre in San Francisco would be the next night, all for a documentary with bad production values and even worse leaps of logic.…

Response to Griffin’s thoughts on strategy

To the 9/11 Truth activist community,


I began writing this letter before David Ray Griffin wrote his opinion on how the movement should proceed. Having just read his thoughts I am more convinced that I need to share my views. I read his first book on the topic, The New Pearl Harbor. Obviously I believe that he understands the problems with the official story. He was able to create a compelling account for someone who was interested in learning.…

Recent 9/11 Strategy Thoughts from Dr. David Ray Griffin

Dear 9/11 truth activists and concerned citizens,

Below is an email exchange between Dr. David Ray Griffin and myself, where Dr. Griffin suggests a strategy for the 9/11 truth movement. I found it thoughtful as well as inspiring, and so I asked him if I could share it publicly. He said yes, and so here it is. I hope it inspires you as much as it does me. If so, please consider buying his new book, The 9/11 Commission Report: Omissions and Distortions.…

Investigate 9/11 Warnings Cover-up

Working Assets Action Initiative

Despite repeated Bush administration claims that it had no inkling prior to 9/11 that terrorists might use airplanes in suicide missions on American soil, the New York Times reported that the FAA received 52 intelligence reports referencing Osama bin Laden and Al Qaeda in the months before September 11. What’s more, the FAA warnings were documented in detail by the bipartisan 9/11 Commission almost six months ago — well before the November election.…

All We Want Is the TRUTH

By Ward Reilly

“If ever time should come, when vain and aspiring men shall possess the highest seats in Government, our country will stand in need of its experienced patriots to prevent its ruin.”

— Samuel Adams

“The Constitution is not an instrument for the government to restrain the people, it is an instrument for the people to restrain the government – lest it come to dominate our lives and interests.”

— Patrick Henry

“It is the duty of the patriot to protect his country from its government.”

— Thomas Paine

Theologian Calls for Response to 9/11

By Samara Kalk Derby

Capitol Times,

Madison, WI

David Ray Griffin asks the tough questions about Sept. 11, contending U.S. officials had some knowledge of what was coming and possibly orchestrated the attacks.

Griffin, whose book, “The New Pearl Harbor: Disturbing Questions About the Bush Administration and 9/11,” came out a year ago, drew an enthusiastic standing ovation from the majority of the 400 or so people who packed his lecture Monday night at Bascom Hall.…

Why Americans Refuse to Believe the 9/11 Evidence!!!

Analysis by

April, 2005

The attacks of 9/11 were so unthinkable that most Americans would refuse to believe the complicity of their own government, even if presented with a mountain of evidence.

Very simply, it is possible to escape blame if you do something that nobody in the world believes you could do.


When I was 11 years old I sat next to my friend and fellow class clown Jeffery, quietly thinking of ways to torture the unsuspecting substitute teacher.…

A Gradual Awakening

It takes a long-term view to see our way out of this gloom.

By Ken Jenkins

It was early 2005. It was a time of malaise, of vague apprehension, of depression, of disbelief, of foreboding and dread. It was the time after Bush&Co stole yet another election and we faced 4 more years of an ongoing, ever-darkening nightmare. It was long enough after the election to have moved beyond the shock and denial, but not far enough to have fully accepted and grokked our predicament, or to have the foggiest idea what the heck to do next.…

Is it possible to change the system when you are the system?

In February of this year, United for Peace and Justice (UFPJ), a coalition of more than 800 peace and justice groups throughout the United States, held their second annual Assembly to hear and vote on proposals for a 2005 “action plan.” With the war in Iraq fast approaching its second anniversary, and the larger “War on Terror” crossing its third and half year, close to 500 delegates from 275 member groups traveled to St.…

By Steve Hammons

9/11 Truth’s 10th OKC Bombing Anniversary Report-back

by Richard Asmus
April 28, 2005

Delegates from 911Truth attended the Oklahoma City Bombing Investigation Committee’s (OKBIC) convention commemorating the 10th anniversary of the April 19, 1995 bombing. They found startling similarities between the tragedies of the Alfred P. Murrah Federal Building and the World Trade Center. Both attacks have many common signs of federal government involvement and cover-ups.

The most compelling problem at the Oklahoma City site was that first viewers on the scene, who were not associated with the federal government, found several un-detonated explosives.…

An Open (Angry) Letter to United for Peace & Justice, A.N.S.W.E.R, et al,

To whom it may concern:

I writing to tell you that I will not be attending any more of your
protest actions, and although that fact is admittedly insignificant, the
reason behind it certainly isn’t, because the reason is shared by hundreds
of political activists, and millions of political dissenters.

Much in the way that the mainstream media has become marginalized as a
source of information, your organizations have become marginalized in the
arena of political protest, and much for the same reasons.…
