Before the Congress adjourns, I will bring forth a new proposal for the establishment
of a National Commission on Truth and Reconciliation, which will have the power
to compel testimony and gather official documents to reveal to the American
people not only the underlying deception which has divided us, but in that process
of truth seeking set our nation on a path of reconciliation.
We suffer in our remembrance of 9/11, because of the terrible loss of innocent
lives on that grim day. We also suffer because 9/11 was seized as an opportunity
to run a political agenda, which has set America on a course of the destruction
of another nation and the destruction of our own Constitution. And we have become
less secure as a result of the warped practice of pursing peace through the
exercise of pre-emptive military strength.
It is not simply 9/11 that needs to be remembered. We also need to remember
the politicization of 9/11 and the polarizing narrative which followed, locking
us into endless conflict, a war on terror which has wrought further terror worldwide
and which has severely damaged our standing worldwide as an honorable, compassionate
nation. As we were all victims of 9/11, so we have become victims of the interpretation
Our government’s external response to 9/11 was to attack a nation which did
not attack us. Indeed on the first anniversary of 9/11, the Bush Administration
issued a well-publicized stern warning… Continue reading
An Original Report from Chicago
by Sander Hicks
July 12, 9:10 PM, Chicago, IL
The Green Party of the United States today nominated truth activist and seasoned politician Cynthia McKinney for U.S. President. In her 12 years in Congress, McKinney distinguished herself for questioning Donald Rumsfeld under oath about missing trillions at the Pentagon. She introduced articles of impeachment and asked questions about the 9/11 attacks, in 2002, when such skepticism was not tolerated from public figures.
McKinney’s story includes many accomplishments as a legislator. She has been the conscience for a misguided nation. But the other half of her story is not what she has done, but what has been done to her. She took the blows of fierce reaction when the political establishment and corporate centrist media attacked her for violating the taboo that demanded silence about 9/11. In 2002, GOP strategists used a special “crossover” strategy to get their voters to vote in the Democratic primary for a fake Democrat substitute for McKinney. She came back in 2004. After introducing articles of impeachment and holding congressional hearings into 9/11, Capitol Police pretended not to recognize her, which sparked a confrontation with a frustrated McKinney. The media claimed she punched a cop. McKinney lost re-election in 2006.
So it was a comeback of another kind today. Greens all over the convention today were fond of quoting Jesse Jackson who said “the Democratic Party is where progressive politics go to die.” In her… Continue reading
It wasn¹t the flashiest Truth action ever, nor did it make the evening
news, but 20 or more dedicated Boston911Truth activists hit the pavement at
Boston’s 4th of July Pops concert and fireworks display and accomplished something
just short of miraculous, for us anyway. Armed with only a smile, new Patriots
Question 911 postcards and WeAreChange informational flyers, our hearty "Info
Warriors" were able to distribute 7,000 pieces of literature at a rate
of 1,000 per hour for seven hours among the crowds lining the Charles River
waiting for the festivities to begin.
This was a unique experiment for us. Each year on the 4th, Boston’s Charles
River Esplanade attracts 500,000 people to listen to the Boston Pops and watch
the spectacular fireworks display. Our primary goal was to get as much solid
literature as we could into the hands of the captive audience who come hours
early to claim a good spot.
Two weeks prior, we ran a 48-hour email fund drive to raise the money to buy
10,000 pieces of literature. We hit our mark in less than 36 hours. We purchased
4,000 of the new PatriotsQuestion911 postcards created by 911Truth.org and 6,000
WeAreChange tri-fold flyers.
Our next strategy was to blend in with the crowd meeting them where they
are at, as opposed to creating some sort of scene to get noticed. We had virtually
no signs (though we did put up an ae911truth.org sign about half way through)
and most of us wore Red… Continue reading

As a friend and colleague of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., during the last year of his life, James Earl Ray’s attorney, for the last ten years of his life and, finally, lead Counsel for Dr. King’s family in the 1999 civil trial which brought forward evidence from 70 witnesses over 30 days in Memphis, I am compelled to comment, for the record, on the most recent documentary on the assassination by CNN which is being aired on an ongoing basis. The fact that my participation in the program was used to give it some credibility makes this comment even more relevant.
It is one matter to distort the truth of how this great American prophet was taken from us, but quite another to have mainstream media perpetuate disinformation on matters of such public importance to the citizens of the Republic. An expert witness, at the King family civil trial, William Schapp, set out the historical use of government disinformation through mainstream media, dating back to the 1920’s.
The first half of the program was dedicated to James and his background and history. While the program notably failed to provide a motive as to why this escaped convict would even consider such an act, and racism had been excluded by the earlier Congressional investigation, it was hinted at by a reference of his refusal to go to a work farm attached to the Missouri prison because of the number of blacks in that facility. In fact, James was afraid of becoming tied into drug activity which was going on there and having his term extended.…Continue reading
McCain doesn’t want to impeach Bush
David Edwards and Nick Juliano, Raw Story
Thursday June 26, 2008
Republican presidential candidate John McCain was asked Thursday his opinion of an attempt to impeach President Bush. His answer shouldn’t surprise anyone.
If nothing else, the fact that a question was even asked shows that McCain’s campaign doesn’t do as rigorous a job as President Bush’s handlers do in weeding out unfriendly questioners from town hall meetings.
“I appreciate this opportunity, Mr. McCain, to ask you a question,” said a man attending the town hall meeting at Xavier University in Ohio. “Part one is in regards to the articles of impeachment brought up by Kucinich for Bush. What your stance is on that as far as manipulated intelligence to form the policy. And then the second is Professor Gatsby from Arizona was outside your office for sixteen days and didn’t eat solid foods. I was wondering if you agreed to meet with him for the two hours he requested or does he have to be a corporate owner with multi-million dollars to meet with you.”
The Republican senator laughed.
“I do not agree with quote ‘articles of impeachment,'” McCain said, in reference to a resolution introduced by Rep. Dennis Kucinich (D-OH).
The second question was about an Arizona professor and 9/11 conspiracy theorist who staged a hunger strike outside McCain’s office requesting a meeting with the senator. McCain said the professor ended his strike although he was refused an audience.
“I did not” meet with him, McCain said.…Continue reading

Sixteen months ago, Brigham Young University and Steven Jones parted ways, but he said this week he isn’t bitter about the academic divorce.
He certainly hasn’t curtailed his volatile research on the collapse of the three World Trade Center towers after the terrorist attacks of Sept. 11, 2001.
(Yes, three towers fell, not just two. If you didn’t know that, Jones is particularly interested in reaching you with his message that some other group, in addition to al-Qaida, likely contributed to the collapses.)
In fact, Jones is the lead author of a paper on the collapses published April 18 in a civil engineering journal. (Ed.: Full paper can be read here at www.Bentham-open.org.)
The journal article does not list his past tie to BYU, and that’s a big Mission Accomplished for university leaders, who felt they acted to protect BYU’s reputation when they worked out a retirement package with Jones and he left at the end of 2006.
But Jones is sharing a cramped BYU office with some professors. He also does research in a BYU lab as an outside user with a student who works with him.
Most importantly, he is preparing several more papers that, if they pass peer review and are published, will give him the peace of mind that his case reached the public.
Jones was energized in November when he and others received a response from the national lab charged by Congress… Continue reading

“Architects, Engineers & Scientists Examine the Evidence of 9/11″, held February 23rd at Immanuel Presbyterian Church in Los Angeles, featured Cynthia McKinney, Richard Gage, and Steven Jones. Following is a two-part video of Cynthia’s presentation (click Read More for part 2); more will be posted here as we receive it from event organizers.
Commentary on event from Prof. Steven Jones:
A great event came together very well Saturday evening, 23 Feb 2008, under the able leadership of Julia and Kristine (sp?) of KPFK – LA. Julia provided introductions followed by Richard Gage for about 35 minutes, then I spoke for about an hour, followed by Richard once more… Then Cynthia McKinney gave a powerful, motivating talk — she is running for US President in the Green Party (USA). She is very 9/11-savvy. Finally, Q&A. It was fun — a lot of energy at the meeting.
I presented new SEM/EDS data on the red/gray chips — and explained further research that is being planned and done to finish this up. (Hopefully the video will be available soon.) I also spoke about areas where I/we actually agree with NIST scientists and engineers, e.g.,
1. The “pancake theory of collapse” — has been analyzed and dismissed by NIST in their reports. For example, in an FAQ released by NIST in Aug 2006, they write:
“NIST’s findings do not support the “pancake theory” of collapse, which is premised on a progressive failure of the floor systems in the WTC towers.” wtc.nist.gov/pubs/factsheets/faqs_8_2006.htm

Zogby Poll: 51% of Americans Want Congress to Probe Bush/Cheney Regarding 9/11 Attacks; Over 30% Seek Immediate Impeachment
67% also fault 9/11 Commission for not investigating anomalous collapse of World Trade Center 7
Kansas City, MO (Zogby International) September 6, 2007 – As America nears the sixth anniversary of the world-churning events of September 11, 2001, a new Zogby International poll finds a majority of Americans still await a Congressional investigation of President Bush’ and Vice President Cheney’s actions before, during and after the 9/11 attacks. Over 30% also believe Bush and/or Cheney should be immediately impeached by the House of Representatives.
The 911truth.org-sponsored poll also found that over two-thirds of Americans say the 9/11 Commission should have investigated the still unexplained collapse of the 47-story World Trade Center Building 7 at 5:20 p.m. on September 11, 2001.
WTC 7 housed the mayor’s emergency bunker and offices of the SEC, IRS, CIA and Secret Service and was not hit by any planes but still completely collapsed into its own footprint nearly eight hours after the Twin Tower attacks. FEMA did not explain this collapse, the 911 Commission ignored it, and the promised official study by the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) is now 2 years overdue.
Janice Matthews, executive director of poll sponsor 911truth.org, observes: “The supermajority response to the WTC Building 7 question signals an increasing public concern about this remarkable event — up from 38% last year. We can perhaps credit this… Continue reading

The 9/11 truth movement has a wonderful resource at its disposal that it may not be using to the fullest extent possible – public libraries. I’m a librarian by profession, and I encourage everyone in the movement to connect with their local public libraries in order to increase community awareness of 9/11 truth.
One way to do this is to simply ask a librarian at your local branch library to order some 9/11 truth books and DVDs. Last year, I presented my local library with a list of 9/11 truth books I wanted them to order, including the first two 9/11 truth books by David Ray Griffin and Webster Tarpley’s 9/11 Synthetic Terror: Made in USA. The library ordered all three titles, and they’re now part of the library’s permanent collection. The library is also in the process of ordering several 9/11 truth DVDs for its audio/visual department.
It’s one thing to buy a 9/11 truth book at the bookstore and keep it for yourself. It’s another thing to give your entire community the gift of access to that book, which is what you do when you request an item for your library.
Now, there is an obstacle in our way, which is that librarians are in denial about 9/11 just like people in every walk of life throughout U.S. society. If your library’s collection development manager is true to the noble goals of the profession, which include fighting for intellectual freedom and… Continue reading

What is the Goal in the 9/11 Truth Community? Debates, or Justice?
Steven E. Jones
December 22, 2006 (updated Jan. 9, 2007)
Consider this statement made a few weeks ago by Dr. Frank Legge, Kevin Ryan,
Victoria Ashley and other (previous) members of Scholars for 9/11 Truth:
“Further, on the Scholars’ web site, positions are being promoted which
are disputed by the scientists specializing in physical sciences from Scholars
For 9/11 Truth. Attempts to correct this situation have failed. As of this
date the web site continues to promote assertions which are unsupported by
the evidence (ray-beams from space caused the demolitions, mini-nukes were
used in the WTC towers, real commercial jets did not hit the WTC towers, etc.).
We feel that the promotion of these ideas functions to distract from and discredit
much of the other basic strong material challenging the official story of
9/11 which already exists – the stand down, the war games, the insider trading,
the many strong points of evidence on the demolitions, etc.”
How do we determine if ray-beams from space or mini-nuclear bombs were responsible
for bringing down the WTC Towers? How do we know whether jets actually hit the
While it is admittedly exciting to come up with fascinating new theories about
9/11, if we wish to bring the perpetrators of the horrific 9/11 crimes to justice,
we have to exert discretion and discipline by ferreting out those ideas repudiated
by the physical evidence. We should consider these ideas, yes, but… Continue reading
Boston Tea Party 2006
In the spirit of American patriots who on December 16, 1773 rebuked Great Britain’s tyranny by tossing crates of British tea into Boston Harbor, the Boston 9/11 Truth Committee, today enacted their own “9/11 Truth Tea Party,” calling on “all American Sons and Daughters of Liberty to cast-off the tyranny, deceit and lies imposed on the American public by way of the official 9/11 Commission Report.”
On this truly historic day, the anniversary of the original Boston Tea Party in 1773, modern day Patriots cast the “9/11 Commission Report” into harbors in Boston and across the US, in reenactments of the original demand for representation.
Great job, Patriots!
[This story will be updated as new reports, photos and videos arrive.][12/27–Added St. Louis, 12/31–Added Milwaukee, more DC]
Similar events inspired by the Boston group sprouted up around the country including dc911truth.org, who “shredded” the 9/11 Commission Report in front of the White House. Sf911truth.org dumped a larger than life replica of the report into the San Francisco Bay while members of pa911visibility.com tossed an actual copy of the report into the Delaware river. Similar actions took place in Milwaukee, St. Louis, and other places around the country, all in an act of protest against the 9/11 Commission Report and in solidarity with the 9/11 activists in Boston.
The events were generally kicked off with a reading of the Boston 9/11 truth resolution (below) or similar document, followed by a symbolic dumping of the… Continue reading
Jenna Orkin, of WTC Environmental Organization www.wtceo.org, describes the envirotoxic disaster of 9/11, horrendous health effects on residents and rescuers, and lies of the administration that led to the situation.
“Jenna…details how the Bush administration Environmental Protection Agency told the public that the air in Lower Manhattan after the attacks of 9/11 was safe to breathe even while knowing is was not. This raises the question: if the Bush administration was willing to sacrifice the health and the lives of United States citizens, what else would they be willing to do?”
Within the last few months, you’ve given a lot of attention to the 9/11 Truth Movement. In rare circumstances, we’ve even gotten a “fair shake.”
However, your guests have consisted of Dylan Avery, Corey Rowe, Jason Bermas, James Fetzer, Kevin Barrett, Dave Von Kleist, Charlie Sheen, Alex Jones, Dr. Robert Bowman, Michael Berger, Paul Thompson and Dr. David Ray Griffin.
We don’t know if you’re aware or not (you haven’t reported on it), but the original members of the 9/11 Truth Movement have been busy as of late.
On August 4th, 2006, 9/11 family members Lorie Van Auken, Patty Casazza, Mindy Kleinberg, and Monica Gabrielle released a statement that questioned the “entire veracity” of the 9/11 Commission’s report.
On September 5th, 2006, a documentary endorsed by the families that fought for the creation of the 9/11 Commission was released entitled, “9/11: Press For Truth.”
On September 11th, 2006, at the National Press Club in Washington D.C., family members Donna Marsh O’Connor, Michelle Little, and Christina Kminek asked for, “a new investigation into the events of September 11th, and this time, a truly bipartisan, global, with families invested from the beginning, middle, and throughout the end.”
On October 14th, 2006, Monica Gabrielle, Lorie Van Auken, Mindy Kleinberg, and Patty Casazza released a petition that calls for, “the immediate declassification and release of all transcripts and documents relating to the July 10, 2001 meeting that took place between former CIA Director George Tenet and then National Security Advisor, Condoleezza Rice”… Continue reading
Michael Berger, Media Coordinator for 911Truth.org, has been invited to debate Matthew Rothschild, editor of The Progressive Magazine TOMORROW, Thursday, 9/28, from 11am to 1pm Mountain Time, on the Dino Costa show, www.dinocosta.com.
Michael Berger is also director of the new movie, Improbable Collapse, co-written with Rebecca Cerese, award-winning documentary filmmaker (February 1: The Story of the Greensboro Four). The movie addresses the demolition of the towers on 9/11, with the concurrent demolition of our Republic.
Matthew Rothschild recently authored Enough of the 9/11 Conspiracies, Already, published on September 11, 2006 at the Progressive.org.
Dino Costa introduces Mr. Rothschild as believing, “any talk about a coverup are [sic] wrong and irresponsible.”
