Newsweek’s Katie Paul interviewed Green Presidential Candidate Cynthia McKinney, now published at Newsweek.com
A clip and one particular question is posted here. Read the full story at Newsweek.com
Controversy has always been Cynthia McKinney’s trademark. This election season, she may have finally found her perfect political home. Last weekend, the 53-year-old former Georgia congresswoman clinched the Green Party’s presidential nomination; 35-year-old hip-hop activist and activist Rosa Clemente will be her running mate.
A firebrand politician best known for her impolitic statements during her more than 20 years in public life, McKinney has had a mixed electoral record as a Democrat in her district in recent years. After 10 years in office, she was upset in 2002 by fellow Democrat Denise Majette, re-elected in 2004, and ousted again in 2006 by the 4th District’s current Democratic congressman, Rep. Hank Johnson. Most commentators point to her altercation with a U.S. Capitol police officer and her accusations that the Bush administration covered up its role in the 9/11 attacks to explain the losses, but McKinney cites voting irregularities like those highlighted in “American Blackout,” a 2006 documentary that focuses on her career.
Paul: If you were to be elected, what would be item number one on the McKinney agenda?
McKinney: Is it OK if I do several things simultaneously [laughs]? First of all, we have to instruct the Joint… Continue reading

Please forward this around…
After over a year of investigations, my sources are ready to speak out publicly on one on of the most important Sept 11th puzzle pieces ever to come my way.
It seems that Mohamed Atta and at least 4 other 911 (alleged) hijackers were in Oklahoma City just before 9.11.2001.
My sources accidentally ran into several witnesses while investigating leads in the OKC Bombing case.
What did they find?
According to eyewitnesses (none of whom knew each other) Atta and the boys were in OKC just 3 days before 911.
ONE OF THEM, TWO WEEKS AFTER 911!
My sources (who will remain nameless until today’s radio broadcast) also have credit card receipts from an Atta and crew drinking session at a local OKC bar, where they nearly got in a brawl with 2 other patrons.
The CC numbers used by Atta seem to show that the Cards were GOVERNMENT AUTHORIZED!
This could be the most damning evidence to date that the alleged hijackers of 911 were indeed intelligence assets and NOT “terrorists”
It gets better….

LATE BREAKING NEWS – OKC / 911 PERPS
From Chris Emery:
Last night 911Truth.org hosted a conference call with Rep. Dennis Kucinich. If you missed it, or would like to listen again and forward to friends,
In addition, NoLiesRadio.org will rebroadcast this conversation at 11am Pacific Saturday. Following are the questions we asked him, as well as the full transcript, with a few links and very brief commentary, which we’re posting for convenience and further study.
We are grateful to Rep. Kucinich for his time with us, especially on the day he introduced a powerful Article of Impeachment against George Bush; to Allan Rees of NoLiesRadio.org for recording the call and making available; to Paul Deslauriers for organizing the call; and we’re grateful to all of you for listening, for submitting questions, and for your ongoing commitment to reclaiming our government!
At this time we most strongly encourage you to get on the phone, right now! Call every member of the House Judiciary Committee, over and over, to demand hearings on impeachment and a vote out of Committee and onto the full House Floor immediately. If your own Representative is a member of the Committee, double your efforts there. If s/he’s not a member, call anyway, and insist that they support this critical effort, cosponsor the bill, and work aggressively to push the Committee to move on this right away. Full committee member contact information is available at http://judiciary.house.gov/about/members.html , and a call to the main Committee number can be made to 202-225-3951, or email sent via… Continue reading
The first dramatic feature film to challenge the official version of 9/11 events, The Reflecting Pool, will screen twice a day July 11-16 and July 18 at the Pioneer Theater in New York City. The Reflecting Pool follows a journalist who teams up with the father of a 9/11 victim to investigate the official version of the events. What they find poses a disturbing question: To what extent was the U.S. Government at fault for the attacks?
Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) June 6, 2008 — The new investigative movie drama, The Reflecting Pool, marks its New York City premiere at the Pioneer Theater on Friday, July 11. This is the first time a dramatic feature film questioning the events of 9/11 will see an extended theatrical run in the United States. The movie will play twice nightly July 11-16 and July 18 with filmmakers Jarek Kupsc, Jodie Baltazar, and Joseph Culp in attendance for a… Continue reading
Action Alert from FAIR.org — Fairness and Accuracy in Reporting
Talk Show Host Calls for Murder
Michael Reagan says activist should be killed for treason
Nationally syndicated conservative radio host Michael Reagan called for the
murder of a political activist on
Reagan had learned that political activists had reportedly been sending letters
and DVDs to troops in Iraq, advancing the theory that the U.S. government had
carried out the September 11, 2001 attacks. For promoting this unpopular view,
the talkshow host advocated that these activists should be killed as “traitors”:
We ought to find the people who are doing this, take them out and shoot them.
Really. You take them out, they are traitors to this country, and shoot them.
You have a problem with that? Deal with it. You shoot them. You call them
traitors, that’s what they are, and you shoot them dead. I’ll pay for the
Even more troubling was the call for violence against a specific individual:
“How about you take Mark Dice out and put him in the middle of a firing
range. Tie him to a post, don’t blindfold him, let it rip and have some fun
with Mark Dice.”
Reagan subsequently had Dice on his show (6/16/08) as a guest and stated, “I’m
sorry for what… Continue reading
Intro, continued: Scott Horton, of AntiwarRadio.com, interviewed Sibel Edmonds and the blogger who’s long covered her important case (which the corporate media still refuses to touch), Luke Ryland, to shine some light on what might be happening here. Again, Congress refuses to hold hearings, and hold anyone to account. This interview reviews some of the information that’s come to light in Sibel’s 6-year case, as well as the utter lack of action by Congress with regard to the entire network of whistleblowers with whom she’s associated.
Sibel on Congress: “What happened to all those promises you made? All the promises they made, none of them were fulfilled! They may look like champions, but all we have gotten with people like Chairman Waxman and Chairman Conyers is all barking … as soon as the issue dies down in the media, they just go away. They don’t do anything. They haven’t brought about any type of accountability, any type of meaningful hearings … nothing that in any way would bring with it type of accountability or further action, and they do have the power. … (Before, the blamed the Republicans) now we see that with the Democrats across the House, like Pelosi. … If the mainstream media were to do their job that would create the necessary pressure on Congress so that Congress would do what it’s supposed to do; it’s not doing favors, it’s basically fulfilling their obligation to the American public. This is why we are in this sorry… Continue reading

5/28–SPECIAL ANNOUNCEMENT: Joining John and Kyle will be 9/11 Family Member, and “Jersey Girl” Lorie Van Auken who lost her husband Kenneth Van Auken.
This week’s debate on Air America’s “Clout” with Richard Greene is destined to be a special one. As it stands right now, the two confirmed “pro-Truth” guests to appear are Kyle Hence, and John Judge, the founders of 9/11 CitizensWatch. Citizenswatch was a watchdog group of the 9/11 Commission that worked alongside the 9/11 Family Steering Committee. Along with the families, they called for the resignation of Executive Director Philip Zelikow, and at one point, they started an advertising campaign “demanding that Bush, Cheney, Clinton, Gore and Rice testify publicly, and under oath before the commission.” They ran “billboard advertisements in the Washington metro rail system for four weeks, as well as quarter-page ads in The Washington Post.” Thus far the one confirmed guest who does NOT agree that we need another investigation is Daniel Pinchbeck, the author of 2012: The Return of Quetzalcoatl, Tarcher, 2006 and editorial director of the web magazine, Reality Sandwich. Daniel’s position is that we need to move forward, not back.
9/11 CitizensWatch has appeared on C-SPAN:
Kyle Hence is the Executive Producer of “9/11: Press For Truth”, and “In Their Own Words: The Untold Stories Of the 9/11 Families”. John Judge has worked as the Special Projects Assistant to Rep. Cynthia McKinney of Georgia, has been a member of COPA for years, and is writing a critique of the 9/11 Commission Final Report for the 9/11 Research Center.…Continue reading
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Phoenix 9/11 Truth Activist to Start Hunger Strike at McCain’s Office: Memorial Day, 5:00PM, May 26, 2008 at the office of Senator John McCain, 5353 N. 16th St., Phoenix, AZ
Contact: Tim King Office: 480.329.9090, e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org
Phoenix, AZ, May 21, 2008 – In an effort to bring national attention to the 9/11 truth issue, Phoenix activist, Blair Gadsby, a professor of Religious Studies, plans to start a hunger strike on Memorial Day, at the Phoenix office of Senator John McCain. Gadsby is putting the spotlight on McCain because of McCain’s avowed support for the official account of 9/11. McCain is the author of the foreword to the 2006 Popular Mechanics book, Debunking 9/11 Myths: Why Conspiracy Theories Can’t Stand Up to the Facts.
Gadsby, an Arizonan who is represented by McCain, stated for the record, “I believe Mr. McCain is a man of deep integrity. He has stood up to corporate influence in campaigns and to the very powerful Military Industrial Complex in the past, and he has a record of being a maverick. That’s why I’ve chosen to offer him this opportunity to face the issues head-on publicly. He may be one of the very, very few who have the integrity and stature to keep the military loyal and find the broad-based political support to bring about a change in our great country. But today, he is in a perilous position. By writing the Foreword to the official cover-up story, he has sided with the… Continue reading

Monthly Review Press — Reviewing Iowa Terror
by Seth Sandronsky
March 30, 2008
Meet Jesus Iowa. He’s a teen from Oaxaca whose family moves to a
small Iowa town. Athlete and worker, Jesus leaves his home in the U.S. heartland
after the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks on the East Coast. That move partly heats
up his community’s fears and hopes in Iowa Terror (Seventh Street Press, 2007),
Mike Palecek’s latest novel.
His narrative voices both echo and skewer the White House of George W. (MD)
Bush and the kind of patriotism it seeks to spread across the U.S. This is an
ambitious and difficult approach. But Palecek pulls it off with his sharp ear
for the everyday language of rural folks swept up in a political and reportorial
culture of apparently endless war for liberty and security. In that respect,
he reminds me a bit of U.S. author Joe Bageant, who has… Continue reading

This is the first in a series of Week of Truth events, coordinated by scores of people within the truth movement, to coalesce the power of the national movement by focusing on a specific action for a set period of time. Following this initial Week of Truth action, we will work together to draw attention to two major 9/11 conferences in the Northeast in May, and future Week of Truth actions are being discussed on many forums and among truth activists around the world.

Psst! George Bush has a secret
While you Democrats are pounding each other to a pulp in Pennsylvania, the President has snuck back down to New Orleans for a meeting of the NAFTA Three: the Prime Minister of Canada and the President of Mexico.
You’re not supposed to know that — for two reasons:
First, the summit planned for the N.O. two years back was meant to showcase the rebuilt Big Easy, a monument to can-do Bush-o-nomics. Well, it is a monument to Bush’s leadership: The city still looks like Dresden 1946, with over half the original residents living in toxic trailers or wandering lost and broke in America.
The second reason Bush has kept this major summit a virtual secret is its real agenda – and the real agenda-makers. The names and faces of the guys who called the meeting must remain as far out of camera range as possible: The North American Competitiveness Council.
Never heard of The Council? Well, maybe you’ve heard of the counsellors: the chief executives of Wal-Mart, Chevron Oil, Lockheed-Martin and 27 other multinational masters of the corporate universe.
And why did the landlords of our continent order our presidents to a three-nation pajama party? Their agenda is “harmonization.”

Harmonization means making rules and regulations the same in all three countries.… Continue reading

Last Monday, March 31st, a historic event occurred. A conference call was held that involved a list of great American heroes, who have put everything on the line to protect their nation’s democracy. It was meaningful this occurred the same month as HBO’s release of John Adams.
A decision was made — April 16-22nd will be a WEEK of TRUTH !!
All are invited to get involved, by spreading the word on this event, as well as participating in the national “buy-in for truth week,” to finally break thru the corporate media blockade of 9/11 questions, at www.WeekofTruth.org
“. . . they [the majority of Americans] shall come to realize what I now realize… that the 9/11 Truth Movement are the real patriots in 21st century America!”
— Steve Alten, New York Times Best Selling author of “The Shell Game”
“Alone we can do so little . . . together . . . so much.”
— Helen Keller
This auspicious group came together to strategize how to collect the many powerful aspects of the growing movement pushing for answers to the endless unanswered questions around 9/11’s attacks, into one mass focused week of action. The goal . . . to break through the years of frustration with the (media) fourth estate’s betrayal of American democracy through their ongoing censoring of the questions regarding the increasingly obvious official myth of 9/11, which defies physics, logic, and FAA/DOD protocol.
As I sat in on this historic… Continue reading

Air America Radio’s Richard Greene chats with Matthew Rothschild, 9/11 truth
sceptic and editor of The Progressive Magazine, about Presidential
Directive 51 (seize control of the country) which is apparently modeled after
one of GW’s mentors in the early 1940’s. John Conyers (202.225.5126) reveals
that he doesn’t know what it is.
White House Directive 51
This directive establishes a comprehensive national policy on the continuity
of Federal Government structures and operations and a single National Continuity
Coordinator responsible for coordinating the development and implementation
of Federal continuity policies. This policy establishes "National Essential
Functions," prescribes continuity requirements for all executive departments
and agencies, and provides guidance for State, local, territorial, and tribal
governments, and private sector organizations in order to ensure a comprehensive
and integrated national continuity program that will enhance the credibility
of our national security posture and enable a more rapid and effective response
to and recovery from a national emergency.
Hitler Directive Number 51 (yes, we’re recycling Nazi directives)
In this directive, issued in late 1943, the German leader formally responded
to concerns caused by the ominous buildup of Allied forces in the British
Isles. Hitler displayed here his tendency to issue detailed orders far below
the strategic level, and he divided responsibility for military operations… Continue reading

EXCLUSIVE: Former 9/11 Commission Chief Philip Zelikow on Allegations
He Secretly Allowed Karl Rove & White House to Influence 9/11 Probe
Earlier in the week, we spoke to Philip Shenon, author of “The Commission:
The Uncensored History of the 9/11 Investigation.” Shenon suggested
that Philip Zelikow–the executive director of the 9/11 Commission–sought
to minimize the Bush administration’s responsibility for failing to
prevent the September 11th attacks. Shenon also revealed that Karl Rove repeatedly
called Zelikow during the probe. Today Zelikow responds in his first broadcast
interview since the publication of Shenon’s book.
Philip Zelikow, served as executive director of the 9/11 Commission. He
is now Professor of History and Director of the Miller Center of Public Affairs
at the University of Virginia.

Former Democratic Rep. Cynthia McKinney Seeks Presidency as Green Party Nominee
Former Democratic Congresswoman Cynthia McKinney is now seeking the presidency as a Green Party hopeful. McKinney was the first African American woman elected to Congress in Georgia. She is among the most outspoken critics of the
Bush administration and one of her her last measures in office was to introduce a bill for the impeachment of President Bush and Vice President Cheney. She joins to talk about her new campaign and why she left the Democratic Party after more than a decade in public office.
But McKinney’s history of opposing war predates this Bush administration. In 1991 she spoke out against the Persian Gulf war in the Georgia House of Representatives. But McKinney left the Democratic Party late last year–after serving six terms in Congress. She said the Democrats had become “no different than their Republican counterparts.” Today she hopes to be the Green Party nominee for President.
