Vincent Bugliosi’s best-selling book, The Prosecution of George W. Bush
for Murder (http://www.amazon.com/Prosecution-George-W-Bush-Murder/dp/159315481X)
may be about to become more than a book. A viable candidate for attorney general
of Vermont has committed to appointing Bugliosi as special prosecutor to immediately
indict Bush, Cheney, Rice, Tenet, et alia, if she is elected.
Her name is Charlotte Dennett, and she and the future of the rule of law in
the world need you to send every dime you can spare to her campaign (http://charlottedennettforattorneygeneral.com
Bugliosi struggled to find a publisher, despite his record of writing best-sellers,
had to go out of the country to find a company that would make the audio version
of the book, and his book has not been reviewed in a single major newspaper,
although the New York Times wrote an article about the media blackout
of this book (including by the New York Times) that had nonetheless
become a New York Times bestseller. In fact, even those voices in the
corporate media that people assume would have Vince on their shows (Maddow,
Olbermann, Stewart, Colbert) have all refused. They love talking bad about Bush,
but not suggesting that something might be done about it. They were the same
way with impeachment. But inernational media outlets from around the world are
intensely covering what Bugliosi and Dennett are doing and the prospect of seeing
Bush indicted for murder.
And, even in the United States, word keeps… Continue reading

Elaine Brower and Prachi Noor, members of the World Can’t Wait National Steering Committee:
The police repression of anti-war protest that took place at both national political conventions deeply angered members of the peace community, as well as the many people in this country who were shocked at the behavior of law enforcement. There are those who might believe this brutalization of those who were peacefully demonstrating, with permits issued by the City, and which people believe is their ‘right’ under the Constitution, was an aberration or “over-reaction.”
However, what we saw was an emerging police state further testing new weapons and tactics, and learning how much they can get away with.
In St. Paul, the repression began with over a year ago with infiltration by paid informers of protest organizers, and “pre-emptive” raids on private homes and meeting places, leading to overtly political “conspiracy” charges. Police from around the country were led by Homeland Security in the wanton use of concussion grenades thrown in succession at retreating protesters; smoke bombs; an array of tear gas & pepper gas; wooden batons (bats); weapons, including AR15 automatic assault rifles drawn on unarmed and passive people; riot control horses and dump trucks with blades down as if to scoop up anyone in the streets.
This fierceness of control is what is done in Iraq and Afghanistan over the last 7-1/2 years in our names by our military and mercenaries alike, and what has and always will be done in communities of color… Continue reading
Join the Phone Blockade – A Simple Call to Impeach Print E-mail
Buddy, can you spare 5 minutes a day?
If you believe the country is going in the wrong direction and are frustrated by the refusal of the legislative branch, our Congress, to exercise their sworn duty to support and defend the Constitution, then you must have wondered what can you really do about it? What difference can one person make?
There are many of us; the frustrated majority. We want to know what it is going to take to turn things around. What can we do to get Congress to abandon their business as usual attitude and put impeachment on the table now? How can we send them a clear message? They need to quit trying to run out the clock. There is still plenty of time for them to impeach the President and Vice President! There is no legitimate basis for their failure to take action. The House impeached Bill Clinton on December 19, 1998 and the Senate trial lasted from January 7 through February 12, 1999. Not having sufficient time remaining is not the issue. They do not have the will to do it.
We believe that each one of us, acting together, can make an enormous difference, especially if we take one specific, coordinated action. Best of all, it is easy. It doesn’t cost anything and it is legal. In fact, it is our civic duty. Call a member of the House Judiciary Committee… Continue reading

9/11 Truth Seeker
On Sunday 7th September, about 400 protestors marched in Brussels during the second edition of the United for Truth March.
Despite the bad weather and the fact that the March took place during the same day as another popular event, the Belt (Belgian cycling event for the family), the number of protestors had doubled since the first edition of 2007. But measured against the enormous amount of work that went before it — months of campaigning in which literally thousands of posters had been put up — and the fact that the UFT-website announced that there would be at least 475 marchers, one cannot really say it was a tremendous success.
After a long wait to assemble at the Brussels Shuman Square (we were supposed to start marching at 2pm, but we got it underway only around 3pm), the trek through Brussels started. It was a 4 kilometer walk. What should have been the highlight of the march, was the handing over of our letter (demanding an independent inquiry into the events of 9/11), to an employee of the American Embassy in Brussels, became the low point of the day. One of the protestors, who went along with the delegates to hand over the letter, almost got arrested for merely running around with a camera. The delegates were turned away and told to send the letter by mail… For some, yours truly included, it was something not totally unexpected, but a letdown nonetheless.… Continue reading
(Sept. 5, 2008, New York, NY) A solid base has now been established to create
a public referendum known as the NYC 9/11 Ballot Initiative. This campaign is
to enable the voters of NY City to create a new, independent, impartial 9/11 Commission
that would conduct an authentic, comprehensive investigation of the most momentous
event of our time. This effort is unique because if passed by the voters of NY
City, the Commission would have subpoena power and its findings would have full
A dedicated team of citizens are about to cross the threshold of 30,000 petition
signatures. This is the minimum required to submit the Initiative to the NY
City Clerk and NY City Council for their review. There is now official confirmation
from the City Clerk’s office that all existing signed petitions will be valid
for the mayoral election in 2009. Upon reaching this milestone of 30,000, efforts
will continue to obtain as many as 75,000 signatures or more in the coming months
as well as create alliances with various organizations which will serve as a
coalition advocating for passage of the Initiative. With substantial numbers
and support showing there is a serious mandate from the voters, it is actually
possible that NY City Council can be moved to introduce and pass the Initiative
on their own. This is the current strategy which organizers and petitioners
here in NYC have every intention of pursuing.
Another vital piece of information has come to light. Back in the… Continue reading

From: “Josh Silver, FreePress.net”
Free Press: media reform through education, organizing and advocacy
Reports of journalists, bloggers and videomakers being arrested keep rolling
in. The St. Paul police department’s targeting of journalists, including
Amy Goodman of Democracy Now! and the I-Witness videomakers, is having
a chilling effect on free speech as the city hosts the Republican National Convention.
Many in the mainstream media are ignoring these attacks on journalism
— and some independent media makers are still in jail. But in less than
24 hours, more than 35,000 people have signed our letter demanding that
press intimidation cease immediately and that all charges against journalists
This is an incredible response. Help deliver the message that a free press will not be intimidated!
P.S. Below is yesterday’s e-mail with detailed information about
Police in St. Paul arrested several journalists yesterday, including Democracy Now! host Amy Goodman.
Yesterday, police in St. Paul arrested several journalists, including Democracy Now! host Amy Goodman and an AP photographer as they were covering protests of the Republican National Convention.
Amy Goodman and others were released last night, but the story is not over.
We need you to cosign our public letter demanding that press intimidation cease immediately, and that all charges be dropped. It will be delivered immediately to St. Paul Mayor Chris Coleman, the RNC Host Committee and the local prosecuting attorneys.…Continue reading
9/11 truth protest expects hundreds of people next Sunday in Brussels
(English, Francais, Nederlands, Deutsch translations follow)
– AUGUST 28TH, 2008
Hundreds of people will join the second edition of the United for Truth European
protest asking an international independent investigation on the September 11th,
2001 attacks, Sunday September 7th, 2008, at the Schuman Rond Point in Brussels
at 2 P.M. Dr. David Ray Griffin (Writer & Professor in Theology – USA),
Mr. Giulietto Chiesa (Italian Euro-parliamentarian) and Mr. Pierre Galand (Former
Belgian Senator) are now endorsing the protest. More information can be found
on the website: www.unitedfortruth.org.
Furthermore, the platform is endorsed by various Non Governmental Organizations
like The Committee for the Abolition of Third World Debt (CATMD), CODIP, ReOpen911
and ATTAC Brussels.
The platform these people and organizations support is: “In solidarity
with the American citizens, we demand an independent investigation of the 9/11
attacks, which were the pretext for too many wars, lies, and a serious decrease
of (y)our civil rights (“anti-terrorist”-acts, secret prisons, “Patriot
act”, etc). We want European troops back home! We want European laws that
guarantee neutrality of the internet and that explicitly forbid tracing/chipping
(RFID) of human beings as well as other electronic threats on our freedom. We
want democratic and public control of financial organizations (IMF, WB, etc)
and the mass media. But most of all we want to get our life back.”
United for Truth made its first public appearance in September 2007. They organized
the first European protest… Continue reading
Welcome to Firefighters for 9/11 Truth. My name is Erik Lawyer, and I am the
founding member. I am currently a full time firefighter, and have been assigned
to 3 Truck in the City of Seattle for the last 12 years. Before that I was with
the City of Sacramento as a Firefighter Paramedic. I first began working in
Emergency Services in 1988 in the Sacramento area with a 911 private paramedic
ambulance company. I have 20 years experience in Emergency Services. I earned
my pilot’s license in 1987, and have been recreationally flying since. I graduated
with a Bachelor’s of Science in Mathematics from the University of California
at Davis in 1993, with 2 years of elective Engineering courses, and a Minor
I would like to share my story concerning September 11, 2001 and the events
that led to the creation of Firefighters for 9/11 Truth. I, like most Americans,
remember exactly where I was when I saw the attacks and had the overwhelming
urge to take action. I was shocked, outraged, scared and confused. I called
my Battalion Chief and asked if Seattle would be sending any teams to help.
I was a member of the MMST, and figured we would be needed and I wanted to know
where to report. Due to the nature of the incident we were not called up, and
instead USAR teams, including Seattle’s, were sent.
I first visited Ground Zero in October of 2001 with several firefighters from

War-Organizing Resistance on WeThePeopleRadioNetwork.com,
in the first hour to our guests – Michael Pengue and Kenneth Fernandez,
and at 11 pm (CST) in the second hour to our guests – Robert Lewis
and Drew Noftle.
Michael Pengue is the producer of the online film Montreal,
Next Terror Target?, he is also a co-founder of the Montreal 9/11 Truth
group- mtl911truth.org. He is a native
of Montreal, first generation Canadian of Italian born parents.
Two years after the events of 9/11, his friend, Kenneth Fernandez, expressed a very strong suspicion that 9/11 was an inside-job. From 2003 he read books and articles by Michael Ruppert, David Griffin, Daniel Hopsicker, Sander Hicks, Michel Chossudovsky and watched countless documentaries. In 2004, he joined the Canadian Action Party and shortly after became a member of their executive team (until early 2008 when I resigned as vice-president only to continue as a member and supporter of CAP). At the International Citizens’ Inquiry into 9/11 in Toronto, he met Ruppert and others and that drove him to be more active. Just a few weeks later his picture made it in the Montreal Gazette standing in front of the Montreal’s Imperial Theatre for the premiere of Michael Moore’s film ”Fahrenheit 9/11”carrying a sandwich-board reading ” 9/11 Was an Inside Job” and on the flip side “Fahrenheit 911 is Just… Continue reading
September 11, 2008 Day of Prayer: Asking for Guidance for the Next Step

We remember for a living reason. We are moved by our desire to live in a kinder more peaceful world and we are sustained by our vision of a better future.
Please take a moment and visit our website http://911dayofprayer.org/ and add your prayers and inspirations.

Bring your friends, especially the ones that tend to role their eyes at you when the subject of 9/11 and the government”s obvious inconsistencies with their account of their official conspiracy theory are brought to their attention. As always, the metro area”s Fed paychecks spooks of COINTELPRO operatives/spooks, who employ fearmongering as a form of warfare are welcome, as well as their corporate cubicle-dwelling counterparts of blog infiltrators,… Continue reading
A 911blogger user named Orangutan writes:
“I didn’t understand the concept of linking an article in multiple places means higher search ranking. That makes sense.”
This is an important concept. How does a Google search actually work? How do they determine what websites get higher rankings in search results? Well it turns out that they invented a mathematical formula to determine website rankings. Wikipedia explains:
“PageRank is a link analysis algorithm that assigns a numerical weighting to each element of a hyperlinked set of documents , such as the World Wide Web, with the purpose of “measuring” its relative importance within the set. The algorithm may be applied to any collection of entities with reciprocal quotations and references. The numerical weight that it assigns to any given element E is also called the PageRank of E and denoted by PR(E).”
Rankings go from 0-10. 911blogger currently has a rating of 6 ( Ed., as does 911truth.org ). My blog has a rating of 4 (so does truthaction.org ). Now, as you can imagine, if I have a high traffic website and I link to another website, I am increasing the visibility of that website more than linking from a website that has no visitors. You can download the google toolbar, which will disclose the page rank of any website you visit. Wikipedia explains that, “The Google Toolbar’s PageRank feature displays a visited page’s PageRank as a whole… Continue reading
Congratulations, you folks can take a share of credit in bringing about the congressional
committee hearings on Bush’s abuses of powers (watch the video here).
Now, it’s time to move to full blown impeachment hearings. Please call John
Conyers to thank him for holding a preliminary hearing, but insist that now
it’s time to start official impeachment hearings. When a hearing is held in
congress for impeachment, the president cannot claim executive privilege, and
will have to testify. If he fails to, that IN AND OF ITSELF becomes an impeachable
We’re almost there! Call Conyers AND your representative:

On August 1st, I delivered to Speaker Nancy Pelosi; a petition bearing the
names of over 100,000 Americans that, like us, feel that the President must
be held accountable for abusing executive power and disregarding his Constitutional
Your voices have been heard and your support continues to send a powerful message
to lawmakers. That is why I call on you again to help us in a new effort to
deliver 1 Million signatures to Speaker Pelosi on September 10, 2008.
Together we can:
* Urge real Congressional action to hold President Bush accountable now
* Reinstate the authority of our Constitution

* Facilitate post-Administration law enforcement and prosecution
* Reset the standard for the incoming and future administrations
* Demand justice for the over 3,000 who died on 9/11and whose deaths were
tragically exploited to take us into an illegal war in Iraq
* Demand justice for the estimated 30,324 U.S. military personnel who have
* Demand justice for the estimated 4,138 U.S. military personnel who have
been killed or died
* Demand justice for the 1 Million innocent Iraqis who have died*
* Avert another illegitimate looming war — this time against Iran
We need your active participation to deliver 1 Million signatures to Congress by September 10, 2008.

9/11 truth activists often complain about the Corporate sponsored media (MSM) and their collective silence when it comes to explosive 9/11 information . But Jenny Sparks points out this surprising fact: 91% of the users of the Total911TruthNOW website do not have a blog. Does this hold true for other 9/11 forums? Think about this for a second: if you are serious about exposing the 9/11 cover-up, this means you are going to have to get your voice heard by effectively promoting 9/11 information. Joining a forum is a start, but if you are tired of the MSM not reporting 9/11 information, why not do something about it by starting your own blog?
As I explained on the truthaction.org forum ,
… I would recommend it for anyone who is serious about 9/11 awareness… If you don’t speak up, no one will hear you and the 9/11 cover-up will continue. It’s that simple. I’ve had people tell me that reading my stuff has made a difference for them, and that’s good enough for me… Even just creating a blog and linking to credible 9/11 sites… improves search rankings and brings new visitors to these sites.
Don’t wait for someone else to expose the 9/11 cover-up. Get involved by reporting and promoting 9/11 information. Every person who speaks out by spreading credible information , 9/11 truth websites , and films will make a difference. If the MSM is not going to report 9/11 information, are you just going… Continue reading
