Bomb Iran? What’s to Stop Us?

By Ray McGovern
June 19, 2008

It’s crazy, but it’s coming soon — from the same folks who brought us Iraq.

Unlike the attack on Iraq five years ago, to deal with Iran there need be no massing of troops. And, with the propaganda buildup already well under way, there need be little, if any, forewarning before shock and awe and pox — in the form of air and missile attacks — begin.

This time it will be largely the Air Force’s show, punctuated by missile and air strikes by the Navy. Israeli-American agreement has now been reached at the highest level; the armed forces planners, plotters and pilots are working out the details.

Emerging from a 90-minute White House meeting with President George W. Bush on June 4, Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Olmert said the two leaders were of one mind:

“We reached agreement on the need to take care of the Iranian threat. I left with a lot less question marks [than] I had entered with regarding the means, the timetable restrictions, and American resoluteness to deal with the problem. George Bush understands the severity of the Iranian threat and the need to vanquish it, and intends to act on that matter before the end of his term in the White House.”

Does that sound like a man concerned that Bush is just bluff and bluster?

A member of Olmert’s delegation noted that same day that the two countries had agreed to cooperate in case of an attack… Continue reading

Rep. Dennis Kucinich talks with Truth Movement

The Price We'' Pay If We Don't Impeach! poster

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,

 
or listen below.

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

LIVE Convention-Protest Coverage

Daily LIVE Convention-Protest Coverage! All this Week. On the Streets and on
the Floor!! Flash…Amy Goodman and other reporters arrested, preventative detention
of protesters, protesters injured…hear the latest reports on the Convention
Police State on No Lies Radio…

Get the details here: http://noliesradio.org

Or here if it does not resolve with Hughes: http://67.18.54.205/~nolies

From Allan Rees, of NoLiesRadio.org:

Things are heating up in the Police State of St. Paul. Amy Goodman arrested!!
Preventitive Detention, Many other Reporters arrested…many injuries….10
thousand demonstate and not a peep of it on main stream news. However No Lies
Radio is reporting it all as usual and covering it AS IT HAPPENS on the floor
and in the streets. I remember the ’68 convention police riot in Chicago…this
could be a turning point in awakening the Amerian people about the coming Police
State.

This is excellent daily coverage by Democracy Now and live Pacifica Network
broadcasts of Republican conventions Mon-Thur of this week. We also will be
having coverage of the Ron Paul counter convention and on the streets at the
RNC. We are authorized to broadcast this converage.

We think that the 911truth listener will quickly tire of the Democratic and
Republican parties after they hear all the mombo jumbo at the conventions and
no truth issues are ever really addressed and will ultimately gravitate to the
Green Party and Ron Paul. Cynthia McKinney is the only Presidential Candidate
supporting 911 truth issues and has a track record of courageously confronting
the likely perpertrators… Continue reading

Reflections on 9-11

by Cindy Sheehan
September 10, 2008

The 7th anniversary of September 11, 2001 is approaching and it seems like
a good time to reflect on what our nation has lost since that tragic day and
what we can do to go forward.

I do not think that anyone alive on that day will forget the shock that struck
our nation when the symbols of US capitalism and militarism were struck out
of the clear blue sky. I was in panic mode for a few days, because I did not
hear from Casey who was stationed at Ft. Hood on that day and his base went
into lock-down and he was too busy to call. Even though we mourn with our fellow
Americans, the loss of over 3000 innocent people and the pain their families
have had to deal with, the attacks of 9-11 have touched every American.

There are several ways to look at 9-11:

– 9-11 was planned and executed by the US government.
— BushCo did not plan 9-11, but they knew it was going to happen and
did nothing to prevent it and, in fact, may have allowed it to happen.
— 9-11 was planned and executed by a group of 17 terrorists (14 of them
from Saudi Arabia) without the foreknowledge of the US government and we were
attacked because the terrorists "hated our freedoms and democracy."

Whichever of the theories is true, one thing is for sure: the Bush regime’s
response to 9-11 was woefully… Continue reading

CODE-RED: People for Revolution!

December 13, 2008
by Cindy Sheehan

That to secure these rights, governments are instituted among men, deriving
their just powers from the consent of the governed. That whenever any form of
government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the right of the people
to alter or abolish it, and to institute new government, laying its foundation
on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall
seem most likely to effect their safety and happiness.
Preamble to the Declaration of Independence

"An army of principles can penetrate where an army of soldiers cannot."
Thomas Paine (Revolutionary)

I was recently in Cuba to attend a Human Right’s conference. Cuba is a lovely
country (with many problems still) that will be celebrating 50 years of Revolution
on January 1st of 2009.

Cuba is struggling economically because there are limits to what a tiny island
nation can do, especially when the mightiest nation on this planet sits menacingly
to the north and has maintained a blockade against trade and travel for many
decades. The nation of Cuba is struggling economically, but since they have
been able to survive (not quite thrive) after all this time gives the citizens
of Cuba a rightful pride and sense of unity that is not so apparent in The Empire
that has tried to crush them.

The Revolution led by the Castro brothers, Che Guevara and many other Cuban
heroes overthrew the US puppet government in Havana led by US proxy General
Fulgencio… Continue reading

To the Anti-war Movement in the United States:

Saturday, 13 December 2008
WorldCantWait.net

“That which you do not resist and mobilize to stop
you will learn — or be forced — to accept.”

From the Call to Drive out the Bush Regime, 2005

Barack Obama is sending a surge of 20,000 troops to Afghanistan.

An anti-war movement that does not move immediately to oppose the Obama
doctrine of shifting the central front of the war on terror to Afghanistan,
no longer deserves to be called an anti-war movement.

Millions of people voted for Obama because they thought he would end the war.
Yet Obama filled his cabinet with Hillary “Obliterate Iran” Clinton,
Robert Gates, James Jones and Susan Rice (“a kettle of hawks,” said
Jeremy Scahill).

He is not only continuing an unjust war by leaving 80,000 troops and 17 permanent
bases in Iraq, and all over the region, including nuclear carrier-led task forces
with enough firepower to “annihilate” any country in the region, but
Obama is enlisting many progressive sections of society to support and be complicit
in waging a spreading war for U.S. hegemony and imperialist expansion known
as the “war on terror.”

The election of the first Black president is effectively re-branding preemptive
and illegal wars of aggression to make us feel good about them. Massive anti-war
sentiment and action is already being transformed into flag-waving patriotism,
passivity and capitulation in the face of horrors.

The U.S. military, stretched thin and full of discontent after six years of
carnage in Iraq, is now being replenished.…

sanctions against Iran. They will say no to the illegal U.S. program of detention
and torture.

Cindy Sheehan, Statement of Support of NYCCAN

Cindy Sheehan
7/16/2009
http://cindysheehanssoapbox.blogspot.com

Manny

On April 4th, 2004, my son Casey was killed serving the United States Army in Iraq during the illegal occupation started by the Bush Administration.

That illegal occupation was made possible because of the attacks that took place on September 11th, 2001, resulting in the deaths of 2,973 people.

Since that horrid day, victims’ family members have been doing everything within their power to seek justice and accountability for what happened, with little to no success. It is shameful that almost 8 years after the fact, they have been denied this. The official 9/11 commission report was a sham and a mockery of justice, not justice.

Currently, there is an effort underway in New York City to get a new investigation
onto the ballot by this November. The New York City Coalition for Accountability
Now (www.NYCCAN.org) is currently attempting
to get enough signatures to make this happen, and they need your help. I wholeheartedly
support and endorse this effort.

Please do what you can to support this effort, and thank you.

The Silence of the Antiwar Movement is Deafening
Cindy Sheehan’s Lonely Vigil in Obamaland

By JOHN V. WALSH August 26, 2009 Counterpunch.com

A funny thing has happened on Cindy Sheehan’s long road from Crawford, Texas, to Martha’s Vineyard. Many of those who claim to lead the peace movement and who so volubly praised her actions in Crawford, TX, are not to be seen. Nor heard. The silence in fact is deafening, or as Cindy put it in an email to this writer, “crashingly deafening.” Where are the email appeals to join Cindy from The Nation or from AFSC or Peace Action or “Progressive” Democrats of America (PDA) or even Code Pink? Or United for Peace and Justice. (No wonder UFPJ is essentially closing shop, bereft of most of their contributions and shriveling up following the thinly veiled protest behind the “retirement” of Leslie Cagan.) And what about MoveOn although it was long ago thoroughly discredited as principled opponents of war or principled in any way shape or form except slavish loyalty to the “other” War Party. And of course sundry “socialist” organizations are also missing in action since their particular dogma will not be front and center. These worthies and many others have vanished into the fog of Obama’s wars.

Just to be sure, this writer contacted several of the “leaders” of the “official” peace movement in the Boston area — AFSC, Peace Action, Green Party of MA (aka Green Rainbow Party) and some others. Not so much as the courtesy of a reply resulted from this effort – although the GRP at least posted a notice of the action.…

Camp OUT NOW – Peaceoftheaction.org – Begins March 13

mainart

Details at Peaceoftheaction.org

SPREAD THE WORD!!! THE US MILITARY/CORPORATE EMPIRE IS DESTINED TO CRUMBLE.
COME BE PART OF A HISTORIC ACTION!

The only way to peace is through the people.

Camp OUT NOW is the boldest and bravest action ever envisioned by and for peace.

Camp OUT NOW’s stated objective is to: "Clog Washington, DC every week
day through diffuse Civil Resistance (CR) actions to have the effect of tampering
with ‘business as usual’ in the Capital of the United States of America."

Our demands are simple:

* Troops out of the Middle East, which includes drones, permanent bases, contractors
and torture/detention facilities.
* Reparations for the peoples of these war torn regions and a fully funded VA
system to reintegrate our soldiers healthfully into our society.

Most of the rest of the world is aware that the US is a Military/Corporate
Empire and that the spread of this Empire is harmful globally to peace, the
environment, and economic health. Part of Camp OUT NOW’s mission is to bring
awareness to Americans about the profound cost to all of us from this Empire.

We need as many people as possible who realize that time is running short for
us to truly affect change by commitment and dedication to humanity through the
end to the US Empire (and its subsidiaries).

Beginning March 13th, we will erect a tent city on the grounds of the Washington
Monument to house, feed and otherwise care for everyone who participates and
needs a place to… Continue reading

‘Treason in America’ Conference Coverage

“Burying” the Truth: Nightline Reporter Channels Bill O’Reilly and Does a Hatchet Job

by Coleen Rowley, Former FBI Special Agent March 10, 2010
Huffington Post

In a sad commentary on the currently disintegrating state of “main stream media”, I found myself ambushed on Saturday, March 6th, just ten minutes after I arrived at a conference outside Philadelphia on “9-11, the Wars and Our Broken Constitution”.

Photo of Coleen Rowley and Nightline reporter When young, smiling female producer Katie Hinman identified herself as being with ABC and asked for an interview, I had only just arrived at the conference. So although I was a little surprised that the Nightline TV crew was there, I immediately consented to an interview before anyone had a chance to warn me that the TV show was trying to concoct a connection between the conference and the mentally ill young man who had been killed a few days before while shooting at Pentagon guards.

From the very first question Mr. Bury launched, it was clear, however, that he was not interested in the truth, and that I would not fare any better than someone who consents to go on Bill O’Reilly’s or Glenn Beck’s show.

In the interest of journalistic ethics, let me list a few of the departures from how a decent, ethical, objective journalist would have covered the story of this conference:

1) Chris Bury and his news crew left right after interviewing me. They apparently only spent a couple hours at the conference that morning (before I arrived) and did… Continue reading

Peace of the Action: Open Letters from Bob McIlvaine, father of Bobby McIlvaine and Jon Gold

As many of you may already know, Cindy Sheehan and Jon Gold are in Washington protesting the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq. They, along with many other anti-war activists, are camping out at the Washington Monument.

It surely is not easy to “keep the flame of protest’ when the media and special interest groups fight us at every juncture. But, as Cindy and I both know all too well, life is precious and we have lost too, too many young lives already.

Cindy and Jon, I cannot be with you, but I am truly there in spirit. May God keep you safe.

Bob McIlvaine
Father of Bobby McIlvaine


Friends,

On Monday morning, we are setting up Camp OUT NOW on the lawn of the Washington Memorial. I have chosen to partake in this because for 9 years we have tried to use the “system” to bring truth and accountability for the 9/11 attacks, and the “system” does not work.

I don’t know if you’ve noticed or not, but 9/11 is not being allowed in the courts. So I don’t know what option is left. Part of 9/11 Truth is being anti-war. That’s part of the reason we do what we do… or at least I’ve always thought it to be the case. That we are trying to end the “9/11 wars” by exposing the truth. I can’t think of a better place for 9/11 Truth to be than an event designed to end the wars. Knowledge is, after all, power.… Continue reading

Protests Held Across Nation as Wars Continue on 7th Anniversary of Iraq War’s ‘Shock and Awe’

Racist bigots with the “Tea Party Movement” aren’t the only

the wars and torture the U.S. is still carrying out.

There were thousands marching in DC today. Read AP report. Watch the AP video. Watch the local video coverage:

In San Francisco, Daniel Ellsberg spoke to a rally of thousands on the importance of protest:

Daniel Ellsberg, who leaked the top-secret Pentagon Papers study of the
Vietnam War and is the subject of the recent documentary film, “The Most Dangerous
Man in America,” likened the protest and others like it around the country Saturday
to a day of demonstrations organized against the conflict in Vietnam in 1969.

“They thought it had no effect,” he told the crowd in San Francisco, referring
to the 1969 protesters. “They were wrong.”

Ellsberg said President Richard Nixon was planning to escalate the war
around that time, but held off.
