Another day, another non-denial denial that Bush is planning midnight
preemptive blanket pardons for his entire gang, including himself. In
an article in the New York Times the other day,
current attorney general Mukasey is quoted as asserting it would not be “necessary”.
Please take careful note he did not say it wouldn’t happen, because
unless we speak out now it WILL.
The best shot we have is H.Res. 1531 which puts the administration on
clear notice that there will be strong push back from Congress if
they attempt such a scurrilous stunt. Please submit this action page
to ask your House member to sign on as a co-sponsor of this measure.

We all know that George Bush as someone without even the guts to face
his own music, he who sent more that four thousand brave Americans to
their senseless graves, for a premeditated and knowing lie in Iraq,
tens of thousands of American crippled and mutilated for life,
trillions looted from our economy, and he doesn’t even have the
simple courage to risk the accountability of having to defend his
numberless crimes in a fair trial.
It is now known that Nixon seriously considered pardoning himself,
but even he was not THAT despicable. George Bush most certainly is.
And remember that his administration has been infested with Nixon era
cronies like Cheney and Rumsfeld, so it is no surprise that the
malfeasance of the Nixon era has been magnified… Continue reading

Secure a place in your cities parade.
North Texans for 9/11 Truth are making plans for this January’s
MLK parade in Dallas . We encourage other 9/11 Truth Groups to start making
plans now by submitting applications to march in their local parade. This type
of 911TRUTH action can have an extremely positive IMPACT !!
Martin Luther King Jr. Day will be celebrated on Monday January 19, 2009. During
the course of that holiday weekend, many municipalities will have parades and
public events. This is a fantastic opportunity for 9/11 Truth Groups to generate
an extremely positive impact.
In 2008, North Texans for 9/11 Truth marched in the Dallas MLK
parade after Joe pushed through the application process. The crowds were very,
very receptive to 911 TRUTH! People were smiling and waving and even cheering
us on. Some in the crowd were shouting that they know the official story is
a lie. Our group gave away more than 500 DVDs and hundreds of flyers, until
we finally ran out. People were clamoring for the free DVDs and flyers. We easily
could have given out several thousand DVDs to the lines of people hungry for
truth. This year, we are planning to be well prepared with thousands of DVDs

How will the American people set an agenda in Washington that guarantees deep change?
How can we aim high, and demand the impossible?
How can we guarantee Barack Obama will fulfill the hope and promise he has represented?
(And how deep will the change really be, when you’ve put together a centrist cabinet?)
Inaugurate Yourself! will gather fellow rebels and radicals, spiritual people and political instigators, people who want to speak out and support Sander Hicks “Three New Imperatives:”
1. We can visualize the US Government renouncing violence within our lifetime. If the Democratic Party won’t embrace the radical call to peace and nonviolence of Gandhi, King, Jesus of Nazareth, Dorothy Day, and others, then it’s up to us. The US can really lead the world for the first time, not with the strength of its right arm, but with a new ideal of peaceful conflict resolution. It’s time for us to evolve. This is a natural next step.
2. We call on the US to start an innovative green venture capital program, to rejuvenate the economy, and change the whole paradigm of “dog eat dog” capitalism. Capitalism, too, must evolve. The government could have a role, not as a bumbling huge bureaucracy, but as a creative instigator and funder of conscious, sustainable new companies that act in the public interest, produce important new goods and services, and use the public markets to create a… Continue reading
Dear 9/11 Truth Advocates,
As 2009 arrives, 911Truth.org wishes you all the best, and extends our gratitude to each of you for your persistent courage and dedication to hard truths!
For nearly five years, 911Truth.org has served as your portal to reliable information about 9/11, its precedents and consequences, as an umbrella for hundreds of local truth activism groups, as a catalyst for national campaigns and new 9/11 truth special interest groups, and so much more. We are at a very critical juncture right now, as monthly donation pledges total about $500. We need to raise $15,000 for this first quarter of 2009 if we are to continue to provide these valuable services.
As we enter a new year, with a new administration coming into office, we are excited to continue this important work with some new opportunities–though admittedly, significant challenges remaining–in front of us!
Having witnessed the international reaction to the election of Barack Obama, we believe that a new dawn in political responsibility may be approaching. We therefore encourage the 9/11 community to take an optimistic, and persistent, educational approach to the new administration, one which will speak truth to power in a new relationship based on positive expectations of honesty and good faith. The approach we envisage continues to be based on the expectation that individuals within the United States Government and its citizens, once educated about 9/11, will recognize that only strength and respect would flow from… Continue reading

This just in from Iraq and Afghanistan Veterans of America, IAVA:
This week reports surfaced that KBR, a military-contracting firm, may have
knowingly exposed troops to dangerous toxins in Iraq. Today, I am asking you
to take a stand with IAVA, and call for accountability.
In April of 2003, members of the Indiana National Guard were protecting KBR
employees at a power plant in Southern Iraq. After their service, some of these
troops exhibited signs of cancer, tumors and rashes, and new reports indicate
that these injuries may be the result of exposure to toxins present at the site.
Incredibly, CBS News has uncovered evidence that KBR may have known
about the risks months before it took any action to inform those soldiers.
At least one Indiana Guardsman has died from lung cancer already. Others are
sick. In fact, records from the CBS investigation show that 60 percent of the
soldiers exposed "exhibit symptoms of exposure."
We need your support to ensure that KBR works hand-in-hand with both Congress
and the military to find out exactly what needs to be done to protect our veterans.
We’ll be working in Washington, D.C. to ensure that Congress addresses this
issue head-on with a full investigation, and outreach to the veterans who may
have been affected by this and similar cases.
In advance of the hearing, IAVA released ten crucial questions that Congress needs to ask the nominee. And I’m going to be live-blogging about the hearing straight from DC, watching to see what issues are addressed.
If he’s confirmed, General Shinseki will be facing an urgent and critical fight to improve support for our nation’s veterans. As a wounded and decorated combat veteran, and the first Asian-American in US history to be a four-star general, he has the potential to lead the second-largest bureaucracy in the US government into the 21st century.
However, the challenges facing today’s veterans are radically different than the issues faced by previous generations. General Shinseki must demonstrate knowledge on issues ranging from implementation of the new GI Bill to providing the best health care possible for our newest generation of heroes.
All of this makes Wednesday morning’s hearing one of the most important events for Iraq and Afghanistan veterans in a long time. As an Iraq veteran who was wounded in combat, I’m looking forward to watching the process unfold.
Thank you for standing with us.

Center for Constitutional Rights
The inauguration is almost upon us, and I am writing you with two important related matters. The first is a call to action to phone your senators with questions for Eric Holder’s hearing on his nomination to be the next Attorney General. The second is to send you a link to a report we released yesterday on the simple steps to closing Guantánamo.
While President-Elect Obama has said he will close the base,he has yet to say how or when, which are the most important questions. We are all excited at the chance for a new beginning: it is up to us to make it one we can be proud of. Please call your senators, and please download and distribute our report so we can end this terrible chapter in our history.
I. This Thursday, January 15th, the Senate Judiciary Committee will hold a hearing to decide whether nominee Eric Holder should be confirmed as the new Attorney General. While Holder’s public statements suggest he would be a marked improvement over Alberto Gonzales and Michael Mukasey, it is critical that the American public be certain that our nation’s chief lawyer has an unwavering commitment to upholding the rule of law.
Senate Judiciary Committee members have a serious responsibility to put an end to subverting law to politics – and to ensure that President-Elect Obama appoints an Attorney General who will help him restore, protect and expand our human rights. And it is… Continue reading

Action Alert re. Kucinich’s Bill, HR66
January 12th, 2009
Last Friday, the House of Representatives voted 390 yes, 5 no, and 22 present to pass H.Res.34, “recognizing Israel’s right to defend itself” and “reaffirming the United States strong support for Israel.” To see if your Representative cosponsored this resolution, click here.To see how your Representative voted, click here. Last Thursday, the Senate voted on a similarly worded resolution, S.Res.10, which passed by unanimous consent.To see if your Senator cosponsored the resolution, click here.
The US Campaign to End the Israeli Occupation opposed these resolutions because they failed to call for an immediate ceasefire and unimpeded humanitarian access to the occupied Gaza Strip as required under the terms of UN Security Council Resolution 1860. The resolutions also blamed the victims–the Palestinians–for the civilian casualties and humanitarian catastrophe Israel is inflicting upon them and absolved Israel of any responsibility for its actions.
Thankfully these resolutions will not be the final words of Congress on the issue. Yesterday, Rep. Dennis Kucinich introduced a resolution calling for “an immediate and unconditional ceasefire” and “unrestricted humanitarian access” to the occupied Gaza Strip. The US Campaign is supporting this resolution, which can be downloaded by clicking here.

Introductory text at Religious Leaders for 911 Truth:
The religions of the world share universal values of love, truth, and justice,
and believe in helping those who are oppressed or otherwise in need. Many religious
persons try to engage in activities to make the world a better place, and they
trust in a Higher Power to assist them.
When faced with actions that conflict with the universal moral principle that
we should not do to others what we would not want done to ourselves or our loved
ones, members of faith communities have a responsibility to voice their opposition
to those actions. Many religious leaders throughout history have publicly challenged
morally unacceptable practices—recently, for example, in the civil rights
and anti-apartheid movements.
A significant moral challenge has emerged due to glaring discrepancies between
the official version of the events of September 11, 2001, and the results of
extensive independent research by individuals with relevant scientific or professional
“Independent” here means independent from the U.S. administration
that was in power at the time of the 9/11 attacks. The official reports about
9/11 were not independent in this sense. The 9/11 Commission was run by its
executive director, Philip Zelikow, who was closely associated with the Bush
administration. The official reports on the World Trade Center were produced
by the National Institute of Standards and Technology, which, as an agency of
the U.S. Commerce Department, was run by people employed by the Bush administration.
The independent research, which has led… Continue reading

Richard Gage, AIA Founder, Architects and Engineers for 9/11 Truth
Come and hear Richard Gage, AIA, give his outstanding multimedia presentation on the collapse of the World Trade Center towers. You’ll see an abundance of
photographs and video evidence showing that the way in which the towers collapsed is inconsistent with a plane-impact-and-fire scenario and that the collapses in fact exhibited all the characteristics of destruction by explosives. You’ll learn about molten metal in the rubble pile, molten metal flowing from the windows before collapse, the unmistakable chemical signature of a demolition incendiary “thermite” left behind in the debris, and more. Bring your skeptical friends who want solid, documented evidence and disciplined thinking. We need our best critical thinkers to examine this evidence. Richard has put his professional reputation on the line, and over 560 architecture and engineering professionals stand in solidarity with him at AE911truth.org.

The election of the first black president is effectively re-branding preemptive
and illegal wars of aggression to make us feel good about them, enlisting us
to “serve and sacrifice” for horrors we have no good reason to support.
The U.S. war on Afghanistan is an unjust war of aggression–the supreme
war crime, waged not to bring democracy and liberation to the Afghan
people, but to control Afghanistan with the goal of permanent domination of
the Middle East.… Continue reading
