Tue., September 23, 2008: September 22, 2008 - 9/11 Truth Showin the first hour with Nicholas Levisand in the second hour with Professor Anthony J. Hall.

Nicholas Levis, one of the earliest 9/11 Truth pioneers, Nicholas organized the first major 9/11 Truth Conferences in Berlin, and was a founder and webmaster of one of the first 9/11 Truth websites.

He moved to New York and was involved with the New York group, and flew out to California to help with the San Francisco International Inquiry into 9/11 and then back to New York to help organize the New York Confronting The Evidence: 9/11 and the Search for Truth September 11th 2004 event. He also worked on the film- Everybody's Gotta Learn Sometime with John Albanese.

Nicholas has been working as a translator (German to English), editor, reporter, researcher, copywriter, project manager, interpreter, language teacher and consultant for clients in publishing, media, business, industry, finance, government, academia, health care and the arts. His invaluable, unpaid contributions to the movement have rarely been publicly acknowledged.

Nicholas dropped out of the movement a couple of years ago, and is discouraged by what has happened, although he didn't want to discourage anyone from doing the activist work that remains to be done. We were joined by activist Jon Gold from Pennsylvania, and looked at what the movemnt has achieved, despite what Nicholas considers to be "strategic errors" as far as direction and emphasis.

Anthony J. Hall is the author of The American Empire and the Fourth World, winner of the Alberta Book Award for the best work of non-fiction by an Alberta author in 2004. Volume 2 of the project, The Bowl With One Spoon, is to be published soon by McGill-Queen's University Press. He recently spoke at the Edmonton Questions 9/11: Convention and Film and delivered an oustanding speech entitled The Lies and Crimes of 911: A Canadian View of the War on Terror's Origins the print version is posted at www.edmonton911truth.com/edmontonquestioned.html.

Professor Hall is the founding coordinator and associate professor, globalization studies, University of Lethbridge. A glimpse of his work can be garnered from this short description of his upcoming book-

Earth Into Property: Aboriginal History and the Making of Global Capitalism by Anthony J. Hall
    Earth into Property explores more than five centuries of imperial and anti-imperial globalization, culminating in the lies and crimes permeating the so-called War on Terror. In describing the genesis of global capitalism, Anthony J. Hall emphasizes the connections linking the genocidal Indian wars in the Americas with Europe's colonization of Indigenous peoples throughout Africa and Asia. The global operations of the military-industrial complex and the national security state emerged from the ongoing appropriation and corporate privatization of Aboriginal lands and resources on capitalism's moving frontiers. This network of US-based corporations and government agencies continues to draw heavily on the fascist heritage of Nazi anti-Communism in its drive to universalize and police a single worldwide regime of unjust property relations.

    Hall contrasts the militaristic monoculture of global capitalism with the realm where many political economies thrive in the biocultural diversity of the Fourth World. Hall finds the inspirational sources of this ongoing movement for global decolonization in the liberation struggles of Tecumseh, Toussaint L'Overature, Sitting Bull, Annie Besant, Gandhi, W.E.B. Du Bois, Che Guevara, Kwame Nkrumah, Nelson Mandela, Martin Luther King, Rigoberta Menchu, and Hugo Chavez ­ to mention only a few. In his sweeping and original interpretation, Halls weaves together a narrative of hope extending from the Royal Proclamation of 1763 to the Atlantic Charter of 1941 to the founding at Bandung Indonesia of the Non-Aligned Movement. Hall advances a conception of Aboriginal history that gives all-important historical context to the extensions of the Indian wars in the global resource grabs currently conducted in the name of the bogus War on Terror.

    Anthony J. Hall's Earth into Property picks up where Naomi Klein's Shock Doctrine leaves off. As Hall demonstrates, the spread of "disaster capitalism" has been going on for centuries, not mere decades, on those resource frontiers where Indigenous peoples have been exterminated, dispossessed, and subjugated in the name of earlier versions of the War on Terror.

Professor Hall described the process he went through intellectually, before coming to the conclusion that 9/11 was an inside job. He also has been writing a great deal on the longer history of the United States war on indigenous peoples and how the "War on Terror" is an expansion, extension of that.

He believes that there is a real need for an international genuine investigation of 9/11, especially in light of the complete failures of the US institutions- government, media, academia to seek, recognize, expose the truth and hold those responsible accountable and reverse their larger, subsequent crimes against humanity.

Next Show- I believe we will repeat this 9/11 Truth Show with Nicholas Levis and Professor Anthony J. Hall on September 29th (When I will be celebrating my son's birthday with my family). [I just want to clarify that Professor Hall wrongly credited me with the term "9/11 Truth" although I do believe I deserve credit for coining the phrase "9/11 Truth Movement," which seems to be outgrowing the word "9/11" as the movement expands into a larger "Truth Movement" which fits the concept of the "Fourth World," or a global justice movement, well articulated by Professor Hall in his excellent book.]

Upcoming shows include- October 6, 2008- Rethinking Money Show with Mike Nickerson, author of Money, Life, and Illusion- Living on Earth as if we want to stay.

October 13, 2008 - The American Empire and the Fourth World Show with Anthony J. Hall, author of The American Empire and the Fourth World.

October 20, 2008 - 9/11 Truth and the Larger Struggle Show with Splitting the Sky who wrote The Autobiography of Splitting the Sky: "From Attica to Gustafsen Lake".

Tue., September 16, 2008: September 15, 2008 - 9/11 Truth Show In the First Hour with Michael Maxwell In the Second Hour with Lt. Col. Robert M. Bowman, Ph.D. , USAF, ret and Michael Maxwell.

Michael Maxwell has had many experiences as a Senior Military Officer at the Pentagon Headquarters, in the Office of the Secretary of Defense, at the White House, at top-secret laboratories, in combat crew training, NATO activities in Europe, the US Congress, and elsewhere doing strategic decision-making analysis, technology forecasting, corporate marketing.

He has also worked with public interest groups [eg. Nader's Raiders] seeking to improve the integrity, efficient performance, and eco-wisdom future planning of Government and other institutions. He writes Screenplays, Novels, and a Column for smart, caring, brave, and intelligently fully informed readers and fellow citizens.

He is a founder of The REALLY SMART THINKING Foundation and Projects --- to significantly improve the USA's National Dialogues and some Global consensus items before it is too late.

In the First Hour, we looked at "who was in command on 9/11" and how a stand down of the defenses could have been engineered and who benefited from the attacks of 9/11. We also discussed the missing nukes incident that ocurred in August 2007 and whether it could have been another "botched special operation."

Dr. Robert M. Bowman, Lt. Col., USAF, ret. is President of the Institute for Space and Security Studies, Executive Vice President of Millennium III Corporation, and retired Presiding Archbishop of the United Catholic Church. The recipient of the Eisenhower Medal, the George F. Kennan Peace Prize, the President's Medal of Veterans for Peace, the Republic Aviation Airpower Award, the Society of American Military Engineers' ROTC Medal of Merit (twice), the Air Medal with five oak leaf clusters, the Meritorious Service Medal, and numerous other awards, he is one of the country's foremost authorities on national security.

Colonel Bowman flew 101 combat missions as a fighter pilot in Vietnam and directed all the DoD “Star Wars” programs under presidents Ford and Carter. He has been an executive in both government and industry, and has chaired 8 major international conferences. Professor Bowman taught at 5 colleges and universities, serving as Department Head and Assistant Dean. His Ph.D. is in Aeronautics and Nuclear Engineering from Caltech. He has lectured at the National War College, the United Nations, Congressional Caucuses, the Academies of Science of six nations, and the House of Lords.

Dr. Bob Bowman ran for President in the Reform Party in 2000 and was the Democratic candidate for the US Congress from the 15th Congressional District of Florida in 2006. Bob and his wife of 51 years, Maggie, have 7 children and 21 grandchildren. He is currently on tour. Information about his organization- The Patriots and his schedule are posted on his website. He is in California, now and just spoke at a gathering with people from the Northern California 9/11 Truth Alliance, Santa Cruz and Paul Zarembka.

Bob joined us (from a dinner party where he was a guest speaker) for about 40 minutes, and shared many of his insights, including a remedy for Congress's abysmal failure to impeach a treasonous White House. He suggested a military court martial of them. He also added his concerns that the Neo-Cons were no longer in command of the situation, but beholden to a more powerful Gates/Zbigniew Brzezinski faction who would like to shift the military target from Iran towards Russia and China, which might be even more dangerous than the current trajectory.

Bob also noted that he "lost his election" evcen though exit polls had put him 12 points ahead of his Republican incumbent rival.

We had lots of callers and some were quite despondent, but I don't think we can "just give up." We need courage and strength now more than ever.

Next week's September 22, 2008 - 9/11 Truth Show will be with Nicholas Levis one of the earliest 9/11 Truth pioneers, Nicholas organized the first major 9/11 Truth Conferences in Berlin, and was a founder and webmaster of one of the first 9/11 Truth websites.

He moved to New York and was involved with the New York group, and flew out to California to help with the San Francisco International Inquiry into 9/11 and then back to New York to help organize the New York Confronting The Evidence: 9/11 and the Search for Truth September 11th 2004 event. He also worked on the film- Everybody's Gotta Learn Sometime with John Albanese.

We'll be looking at the 9/11 Truth Movement and its evolution over the years, the missed chances, botched opportunities, surprising successes, growth, where we are now, and strategically what we can do, now, at this moment in time, where the focus, message might have the most impact and bear the most fruit.

Tue., September 9, 2008: September 8, 2008 - 9/11 Truth Show - In the First Hour with Janice Matthews and Mike Berger, in the second hour with Erik Lawyer and Richard Gage, AIA

Janice Matthews is the Executive Director of 911Truth.org. Janice was their outreach coordinator until September, 2005 when she became executive director. She is also co-founder of the now-archived 9/11 Visibility Project, and focuses on facilitating activism and encouraging ordinary people to become participants and leaders in their own lives and communities. She has a B.A. from the University of Kansas, half a masters in social welfare and extensive training in direct-entry midwifery. She is a mother of six, a Kansas City native and radical Christian, and is working now to create a more self-sufficient/interdependent lifestyle. Janice is outraged about issues facing military troops and veterans-- abuse/rape, 'depleted' uranium, 'immunizations,' lack of care and support received--resulting in suicides and hundreds of thousands of homeless veterans, the horrifying 'non-lethal' weaponry used by the US, and our current mainstream media (please, "become the media"!)and believes decentralized people's movements are our hope for successful, nonviolent change in America, as has so often been the case around the world.

Janice gave an update, overview on the movement/events/activities that she is aware of and are listed on the 911Truth.org website, but also stressed that the movement is "decentralized" and a lot of energy is going into local events, activities or projects and that we can't know precisely what is happening everywhere.

Mike Berger is the Media Coordinator for 911Truth.org. Mike earned a degree in Sociology with a focus on human motivation, currently calls St. Louis home, is married, and owns a plastic recycling company and video production company. Born and raised in New York about 20 minutes from Manhattan, he enjoyed visiting Manhattan to watch the building of the World Trade Center complex. On September 11th, with family living and working in lower Manhattan, his cousin actually saw the first plane fly over his head while walking his dog. More than 14 months passed before Mike began to question the official story. Denial turned into curiosity after reading about significant purchases of put options on American and United airlines and several companies that occupied large portions of the WTC Towers, implying that identifiable parties may have profited from foreknowledge of the attacks. He began researching the critical issues surrounding the failure of government officials to perform their sworn duties and defend us from attack. After all, according to George Tenet, "the system was blinking red." What went wrong? Why were we so unprepared for the attacks in light of numerous, documented, specific warnings? Why have we not held a single person accountable at any level, considering the magnitude of these failures? More than two years of investigation resulted in a series of documentaries currently in production. The first, Improbable Collapse: The Demolition of Our Republic, examines how three steel-framed buildings collapsed on 9/11 when no steel framed building had ever collapsed from fire previously. Ever.

Mike described the media's lame response/burial of the deeply flawed recent NIST Report on the collapse of WTC 7. He also spoke of the importance of creating a dialogue with individual members of the press.

Erik Lawyeris the founding member of FirefightersFor911Truth.org. He is currently a full time firefighter, assigned to 3 Truck in the City of Seattle for the last 12 years. Before that he was with the City of Sacramento as a Firefighter Paramedic. He first began working in Emergency Services in 1988 in the Sacramento area with a 911 private paramedic ambulance company. He has 20 years experience in Emergency Services. He earned my pilot's license in 1987, and have been recreationally flying since. He 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 in Psychology.

Erik wrote a moving account of his own shift in consciousness regarding 9/11 which prompted him to start Fire Fighters For 9/11 Truth entitled MAYDAY...MAYDAY...MAYDAY. Here's an excerpt:

    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 Seattle. We went to pay our respect and show support. We raised money for our brother firehouses and attended the funerals of our fallen Brothers. I was deeply moved and humbled by the community support, the sheer enormity of the tragedy along with the courage and compassion of the FDNY "Brotherhood." Even though I listened to their stories for days, I cannot even begin to imagine the pain and tragedy they suffered on that day and the years to come. I vividly remember the anger I felt, the intense desire for vengeance, and the feelings of helplessness. I was relieved when the government identified the terrorists and satisfied that we were going to have a swift deliverance of "justice."

    I've been a conservative my entire life; a registered Republican since I could vote. I am a self proclaimed Patriot with George Washington as one of my all time heroes. So when conspiracy theories quickly surfaced, and "Liberals" cried foul on the erosion of civil liberties, I chalked it up to their political beliefs and bitterness towards the Republican President. I read many debunking articles - including Popular Mechanics - and watched many debunking videos including, Farenhype 9/11. I was convinced that these "Liberals" were misinformed and were grasping at straws to discredit the "official" story. Like most people with strong opinions, instead of looking at all the facts, I was specifically looking for anything that supported my own beliefs. As soon as I discovered any inaccuracy in a conspiracy claim, I wrote it off. My father, a big city cop and Korean War veteran, loved to say, "don't confuse me with the facts, I have my mind made up!" Well, I had my mind made up. I told conspiracy theorists like my own Truck Officer, Lt. Earl Emerson, that they were insane if they thought anyone other than the terrorists did this. Heck, we have ID cards, security camera videos, Bin Laden confession tapes - how much clearer did they need it? The years went on and I was satisfied in my beliefs. I even believed these "Wackos" that doubted the "official" story were distracting our country from focusing on the real threat of terrorism...

    Fast forward to March of 2008. A great friend of mine with a Business degree from West Point, as conservative and non-conspiratorial as they get, came over one night to talk about what he saw happening in the economy. He provided some disconcerting evidence that we as a nation are at risk of entering into another depression; he pointed out historical parallels where other countries, such as Germany, suffered economic collapse. THAT was my eye opener. I became obsessed researching things such as economies, who is in control of currencies, what causes depressions, who profits during war, etc. So many things kept pointing to 9/11. Another one of my dad's favorite quotes was, "believe half of what you see and none of what you hear." So, I looked at both sides and quickly noticed a pattern. On one side, the general media ignores some of the most compelling evidence that contradicts the "official" story...

    When I voiced my new opinion and concerns most of my friends listened. I think because they were shocked that a staunch Conservative could have such a major shift, or because they thought I had lost my mind and wanted to diagnose the cause. Curiously, some became angry at my new questions and actually thought I was supporting Terrorists with my concerns. Being a part of that same mindset myself only a few weeks ago, and then having a major shift in consciousness, really shook me to the core. What has happened to our collective consciousness that we believe anyone who doubts the "official" story or what the government tells us is an enemy? Anyone who asks for the Truth is labeled a "Wacko" or "Terrorist Sympathizer?" What has happened to us? Are we not founded on Freedom of Speech and taught to check our Government?...

    To be honest, I was asleep at the wheel, and relied on what I was being told by mainstream media. The same media whose parent corporations, are some of the largest suppliers of weapons in this war. Before this "awakening" I had no idea the extent of our civil liberties that had been eroded in the name of Terrorism. I had never really wrapped my brain around what legalized torture means. I had always claimed America was noble. Just look at how we treated POW's during WWII and Vietnam compared to our enemies. That separated us. We were setting the example of Human Rights to the rest of the world. Sure, you'll always have individuals that will take things too far, but Government sponsored torture? What has happened to our country? What kind of example are we setting for our children, and the world? You would be interested to learn how many of our own rights have been stripped away recently. Look up the Military Commissions Act of 2006, John Warner Defense Authorization Act, Homegrown Terrorism Act, Presidential Directive 51. It is amazing the rights we have all lost in the past couple of years and very little is covered by the U.S. media.

    After discovering this, I applied the "common sense" test that my Grandfather always said wasn't so common. Why would a government so aggressively suppress truth and blatantly destroy evidence if there was nothing to hide? Why has every testimony from sworn government and military officials that points to "prior knowledge" been stricken from the 9/11 Commission Report? How did paper business cards, cloth bandanas, and plastic ID's that implicate the terrorists survive so neatly through jet fueled fireballs hot enough to destroy titanium and steel? I've seen bodies burned beyond recognition, yet I have never found one that was wearing unburned clothing. These questions alone are enough to make me risk everything for a real investigation and accounting...

    When I truly realized the enormity of the effect 9/11 has had on our Rights, our Economy, our Beliefs, our Fears, our Intolerances and our Government - I felt fear, then anger, then the need to take action. Bill Chickering said it best, "Anger is a very appropriate and necessary response to an injustice. But stand back now; the truth, clearly spoken, is always your best weapon. Calmly spoken, it can burn a hole through the hardest heart." When I realized the extent of the force and attitudes working to silence those who peacefully ask questions, demand answers, and seek truth, it became clear to me that our Country is in serious trouble and I must now stand alongside those Patriots who seek Truth and Constitutional Restoration.

Erik has won over quite a number of firefighters in Seattle and hopes to connect with more of them throughout the country. It is a brotherhood. His suggestion on approaching firemen on this issue was with the handouts that he has produced from firefighter to firefighter (plus cookies/ice cream- gentleness on the part of activists- this is still a very emotional issue for them.)

Richard Gage, AIA is the founding member of Architects and Engineers for 9/11 Truth (ae911Truth.org). He has been a practicing Architect for 20 years and has worked on most types of building construction including numerous fire-proofed steel-framed buildings. He is employed with a San Francisco Bay Area architecture firm and has most recently performed Construction Administration services for a new $120M High School campus including a $10M steel-framed Gymnasium. Currently he is working on the Design Development for a very large mixed use urban project with 1.2M sq.ft. of retail and 320K sq.ft. of mid-rise office space — altogether about 1,200 tons of steel framing.

He has been one of the most tireless speakers on the issue of 9/11 truth, and more specifically on challenging the official narrative of the disintegration of the 3 major skyscrapers in the World Trade Center complex that took place on September 11th. He has been lecturing widely across the US and in Canada. Those who see his presentation rarely walk away still thinking that fires alone could have brought down the buildings.

When NIST came out with a report recently that fires were responsible for the destruction of WTC7, Richard and Architects and Engineers were quick to challenge that report. (See NY Times quotes Richard Gage on WTC7 "collapse"). Gage will be speaking at the 7th Annual 9/11 Truth Rally/March in San Francisco, September 6th and at the 4th Annual 9/11 Film Festival in Oakland, September 11th and at the Now or Never 2008 9/11 First Responders Benefit in NYC September 12th.

Aside from the NYT's reporter and a media request from Bulgaria, the press has tried to ignore the serious criticisms that Architects and Engineers for 9/11 Truth has raised about their reports.

Next Week- September 15, 2008 - 9/11 truth Show with Dr. Robert M. Bowman, Lt. Col., USAF, ret. and Michael Maxwell.

Dr. Robert M. Bowman, Lt. Col., USAF, ret. is President of the Institute for Space and Security Studies, Executive Vice President of Millennium III Corporation, and retired Presiding Archbishop of the United Catholic Church. The recipient of the Eisenhower Medal, the George F.

He is a founder of The REALLY SMART THINKING Foundation and Projects --- to significantly improve the USA's National Dialogues and some Global consensus items before it is too late.

Both men have had experience within the military which allow them to see 9/11 critically, and see through the cover story.

Tue., September 2, 2008: September 1, 2008 9/11 Truth Show In the first hour- Paul ZarembkaIn the second hour- Julez Edward

Paul Zarembka is the editor of The HIDDEN HISTORY of 9/11. (Read a good review of the book by Tod Fletcher). Paul Zarembka, received his Phd. in Economics from the University of Wisconsin. He is a Professor of Economics at University of Buffalo, and has specialized in Marxist theory, labor history, and economic development.

He confronted Philip Zelikow questioning him about the identities of the 19 hijackers who protested their participation in the attacks, as well as the omission of the destruction of WTC7 from the Official Commission Report.

He is coming to the West Coast on tour next week to speak in Seattle, Stockton, and Sacramento.

He spoke about the evolution of the book and some of the key issues that it raised- the questionable identity of the hijackers, the insider trading, the links between Al Qaeda and Western Intelligence Agencies.

Julez Edward was born in the year 1983 in Ostend, West-Flandres, Belgium, together with Apple and Microsoft... He hate's the fact that politics and economy converted the art of being artist into the 'music industry.' In 2006, when no other Belgian 'artist' dared to openly criticize politics or economics (is there a difference?), he decided to become the difference. His music is available at his website- http://www.julez-edward.be/. He is one of two main organizers of the United for Truth.org effort to unite Europe against war and capitalism that culminated last year in a march and rally in Brussels and is currently organizing another march and rally in Brussels on Sunday, September 7, 2008, again in Brussels. They say on the website:

    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 you to get your life back."

      We never pretend to know or tell "what really happened on the 9/11". Until an independent investigation take place we shouldn't even claim it was an "inside job".

      We want to break the wall of silence and the actual isolation of the so called "9-11 truth movement" in Europe when the majority of the US citizen do ask for that independent investigation.

      We want to put the 9/11 in its context and link it to its consequences as 9/11 was a pretext to military wars against innocent people, political wars against freedom around the world and on the net, economical wars against the whole population and the planet itself.

An inspiring video of the 2207 Brussels March is posted at www.youtube.com/watch?v=KaixrURYk7s.

Julez shared his perspective on the consciousness in Europe and their media. His own awareness of 9/11 was prompted by catching the showing of Loose Change on television and a subsequent program trashing the film which offered no substantial explanations for the serious issues that it had raised. His first effort to pull together the United for Truth march in 2007 was an astonishing success and surprised the media. This year the numbers have already doubled and Julez stressed how love and community are being formed to counter the spell of fear and terror used to frighten and dispell dissent.

Next Show- September 8, 2008- 9/11 Truth Show with Janice Matthews,Michael Berger and Erik Lawyer

Janice Matthews is the Executive Director of Mike Berger is the Media Coordinator for Improbable Collapse, examines how three steel-framed buildings collapsed on 9/11 when no steel framed building had ever collapsed from fire previously. Ever.

Erik Lawyeris the founding member of FirefightersFor911Truth.org. He is currently a full time firefighter, assigned to 3 Truck in the City of Seattle for the last 12 years.

He 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 in Psychology.

We will be discussing the 9/11 Truth Movement, the Media, the current organizing that they are doing, and upcoming events that will be happening on the 7th anniversary of the attacks.

August 2008

Tue., August 26, 2008: August 25, 2008- Canadian 9/11 Truth Show- In the First Hour with Michael Pengue and Kenneth Fernandez, in the second hour with 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 he 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 the Tip of the Iceberg." He handed out countless leaflets to the large crowd waiting in line for the theater doors to open and to a sympathetic Gazette photographer.

In 2006, he organized his first 9/11 film screening in a Montreal conference hall. In the summer of 2007 he initiated the creation of The Montreal 9/11 Truth Website for the 1st 9/11 speaker event in Montreal when Webster Tarpley and Connie Fogal, leader of the Canadian Action Party, came to town to speak to a full house in downtown Montreal.

In early 2008, the release of their first documentary film entitled "Montreal, The Next Terror Target?" which he narrated and researched, and which generated an overwhelming response from people motivated to get involved.

From that point onward, in terms of regular participation, everything seemed to progressively get better for them. Since then they have been meeting on a weekly basis to work on their first 9/11 film screening at a university. In June of 2008, they had a full house at a conference with David Ray Griffin chaired by Michel Chossudovsky.

Michael shared a bit of his history and a synopsis of the film which details the shady company hired to install surveillance camera in the Montreal subway system with links to the CIA and the MOSSAD, as well as their confrontation with public officials who awarded the $120,000,000. contract.

Kenneth Fernandez is a political consultant influenced by the political legacy of Pierre Elliott Trudeau. He has two law degrees from McGill University and an exceptional grasp of history and foreign affairs. He ran for the Canadian Action Party in the federal elections of 2000 and 2004 in the district of Saint-Laurent-Cartierville. He spoke at the 2004 Toronto Citizens’ Inquiry Into 9/11. He also did much of the research for the film "Montreal, The Next Terror Target?

Ken looked at the larger political picture and the dual nature/possibilities of having surveillance camera in subway systems, as well as airports, highways. We also spoke about the London bombings which took place after the same company had installed their surveillance cameras- which provided no footage detailing those responsible for the London Bombings. In the Montreal film, the story is told about one man's experience trying to get a suspicious, possibly dangerous man who accosted him on the subway identified by the authorites. It was months before he received a very poor quality video of the incident from the police, raising a multitude of questions.

Robert Lewis is a Montreal writer and filmmaker. He is the author of Gaj: The End of Religion (2004), a book on spiritual philosophy, and the director of the documentary Be Smile: The Stories of Two Urban Inuit(2006), which chronicles the lives of two Inuit men living homeless on the streets of Montreal. In 2007 he travelled to Ground Zero for the 9/11 anniversary to interview activists for his documentary short The Documentary of the 9/11 Truth Movement. For the past year, he has been very active with Montreal 9/11 Truth, and one of the main organizers of the March on Ottawa for 9/11 Truth in support of a Canadian 9/11 investigation, an event scheduled for 7 - 11 September 2008.

Robert detailed the success of the organizing efforts in bringing together Canadians for the March on Ottawa, and the idea/strategy behind the march. It sounds like a lot of fun, actually, and a great opportunity for activists to get to know one another and bond, camping for four different nights along the way. He was inspired by Gandhi, and his famous march to the sea, as well by a sage in India, who also does an annnual long walk. (I had to mention that the birth of satyagraha- Truth Force began in 1906 on September 11th, and we also were inspired by Gandhi and thought of him when doing our own annual 9/11 Truth March, particularly on the 100th anniversary of Satyagraha).

Drew Noftle is a co-founder of the Vancouver 9/11 Truth Society (vancouver911truth.org), was a chief organizer for the Vancouver 9/11 Truth Conference, and helped bring dozens of 9/11 researchers to Vancouver to speak at sold out events.

He is now helping to take 9/11 Truth across the country with the 2008 Truth Tour, and the March on Ottawa http://www.marchonottawa2008.org/. The goals: to unite the movement across the country and start the ground work in creating an independent Canadian investigation into 9/11.

In September of 2001, Drew Noftle was living in Vancouver Canada and had just finished his second year of Marketing Management in College. Tired of the slow life in Vancouver, Drew then decided to move down to San Francisco to meet up with some Canadian friends who were already there, and start anew. Then 9/11 happened.

In the days following 9/11, the Canadian US border was closed for the first time in history, and his plans to move south had to be aborted. Not understanding at all what had happened, and still discontent with life in Canada, he made a quick decision to move to China, and meet up with some friends in Dandong, Liaoning – the northeastern Chinese city that borders North Korea.

After living a few months there, he knew China was to become his new home. He traveled around a bit and eventually made Beijing his home, and spent the next three years studying Mandarin Chinese.

Then in winter 2005, His roommate forced him to watch an Alex Jones film. At the time Drew hated Alex Jones. There was nothing worse then coming home to some nutcase ranting on in a thick Texas accent about how he thinks the world works. Agreeing only to watch 5 minutes, his roommate showed him a clip of Building 7 from Martial Law. This clip literally blew him away. Not wanting to accept the fact of 9/11 being an inside Job, he then spent a few months studying online, and came to find out for himself what the War of Terror was really all about.

Drew returned to Vancouver in Oct 2006, and began to work with the existing network of 9/11 Truth activists. They are now a strong group and an inspiration to the growing global Truth Movement.

He shared details of the itinerary and also mentioned some great musicians who will be with them on the bus, hip hop artists, named Conspirituality who are coming out with a cd. His postings about the Truth Tour on 911blogger.com elicited a great response from activists across Canada, and was a catalyst to help new groups form along the march route.

Next Show- September 1, 2008- 9/11 Truth Show with Paul Zarembka and Julez Edward.

Paul Zarembka is the author of The HIDDEN HISTORY of 9/11.

Julez Edward is a musician and a main organizer of the United for Truth.org effort to unite Europe against war and capitalism that culminated last year in a march and rally in Brussels and is currently organizing another march and rally in Brussels on Sunday, September 7, 2008, again in Brussels. They say on the website:

    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 you to get your life back."

      We never pretend to know or tell "what really happened on the 9/11". Until an independent investigation take place we shouldn't even claim it was an "inside job".

      We want to break the wall of silence and the actual isolation of the so called "9-11 truth movement" in Europe when the majority of the US citizen do ask for that independent investigation.

      We want to put the 9/11 in its context and link it to its consequences as 9/11 was a pretext to military wars against innocent people, political wars against freedom around the world and on the net, economical wars against the whole population and the planet itself.

Tue., August 19, 2008: August 18, 2008- Power to the People Show In the first hour with Les Jamieson and Kyle Hence. In the second hour with Kyle Hence

Les Jamieson, a leader in the New York 9/11 Truth Movement, gives an update on their efforts to carry forward the New York City Ballot Initiative, (a href="http://www.nyc911initiative.org">www.nyc911initiative.org. 27,000 signatures have been gathered, but they may not be able to meet this year's deadline, but the signatures will count towards getting it passed next year. With enough support, they still might be abl to pull it off this year, but they just have a little over two weeks, so they need people and money to assist them in winning over the public and collecting signatures. Tha campaign, itself has been a success in raising more awareness and support for a genuine investigation.

Kyle Hence played a leadership role in creating the 9/11 Truth Alliance back in 2002, and organizing one of the first educational events in DC in June 2002 on 9/11 and the Public Safety. He was involved with the production of three excellent documentaries- Aftermath- UnAnswered Questions from 9/11, 9/11 Press for Truth, and In Their Own Words: The Untold Stories of the 9/11 Families. He was a founder of 9/11 Citizen's Watch, and helped get Representative Cynthia McKinney to chair the September 2004- 9/11 Citizens’ Commission Hearings in New York City and hold briefings for the Black Congressional Caucus in DC in July of 2005, entitled "The 9/11 Commission Report One Year Later - A Citizens’ Response – Did They Get It Right?"

We spoke about the 9/11 Truth Movement, Kyle's films, many aspects of 9/11, including the financial aspects, which Kyle continues to research. Acknowledging the growth of the movement, we also noted the challenges we've had to face, including the morass of conflicting information which makes it harder to discover the truth, the barriers posed by the media, the government, and our own human ability to organize ourselves, let alone cooperate and work together to build genuine political forces to challenge those which organized, staged and have used 9/11 to strengthen their grip on the country and the world.

Originally, I had counted on Cynthia McKinney and Rosa Clemente to be on the show, but Cynthia couldn't stay awake for it, because she has to get up early tomorrow for a plane. I don't know why we couldn't reach Rosa, but when I organized the interview, her scheduler said that she had 200 press inquiries, so I am guessing that she was overwhwelmed and forgot- and the phone number that I was given to reach her was the wrong one, but I don't know. As a Green Party candidate, I know that the Green Party has its strengths and weaknesses; it is not wealthy, well organized, and communications within the Party and between the Party and the public remains a huge challenge.

Cynthia McKinney still is an inspiration to me. Kyle mentioned how she grilled Rumsfeld on the War Games that took place on September 11th and probed to find out about the trillions missing from the Pentagon.

A caller mentioned how Cynthia needed just a few more donations to qualify for Federal funding which would help her tremendously to launch a tour across the country with her message and reach out to young people with her hip-hop supporters.

We spoke about the failure of the 9/11 Commission, but its value in providing us with chronicled lies and omissions which help point the way to the avenues of research that need to be pursued. We agreed on the need for a new commission with subpoena power. Kyle spoke of the success of 9/11 Press for Truth (not financial, but in raising consciousness), nationally, around the world, and how he personally gave copies to members of Congress, including Senator Obama, and Senator Clinton.

John Bursill phoned from Australia to urge Cynthia and the Green Party's help at winning over the Australian Greens, and mentioned their upcoming 9/11 Truth events.

Another caller asked about the possibility of cancelling the elections and martial law.

Overall, I think our message to people is to show courage, and organize; we all need to face and overcome the obstacles in our paths, including members of Congress.

Tue., August 12, 2008: August 11, 2008- 9/11 and Continuity of Government ShowIn the First Hour with Peter Dale Scott and in the Second Hour with John Judge

Peter Dale Scott, author of The Road to 9/11: Wealth, Empire and the Future of America (2007) and a revised updated version of The War Conspiracy, now entitled-The War Conspiracy: JFK, 9/11, and the Deep Politics of War (August 2008). He has also written Drugs, Oil, and War: The United States in Afghanistan, Colombia, and Indochina (2003), and edited with David Ray Griffin 9/11 and American Empire (2006)

His prose books include The War Conspiracy (1972), The Assassinations: Dallas and Beyond (in collaboration, 1976), Crime and Cover-Up: The CIA, the Mafia, and the Dallas-Watergate Connection (1977), The Iran-Contra Connection (in collaboration, 1987), Cocaine Politics: Drugs, Armies, and the CIA in Central America (in collaboration, 1991, 1998), Deep Politics and the Death of JFK (1993, 1996), Deep Politics Two (from JFKLancer, 1995), and Drugs Oil and War (Lanham, MD: Rowman and Littlefield, March 2003)

His chief poetry books are the three volumes of his trilogy Seculum: Coming to Jakarta: A Poem About Terror (1989), Listening to the Candle: A Poem on Impulse (1992), and Minding the Darkness: A Poem for the Year 2000. In addition he has published Crossing Borders: Selected Shorter Poems (1994). In November 2002 he was awarded the Lannan Poetry Award.

An anti-war speaker during the Vietnam and Gulf Wars, he was a co-founder of the Peace and Conflict Studies Program at UC Berkeley, and of the Coalition on Political Assassinations (COPA).

His poetry has dealt with both his experience and his research, the latter of which has centered on U.S. covert operations, their impact on democracy at home and abroad, and their relations to the John F. Kennedy assassination and the global drug traffic. The poet-critic Robert Hass has written (Agni, 31/32, p. 335) that "Coming to Jakarta is the most important political poem to appear in the English language in a very long time."

He was featured in Guerrilla News Networks short documentary The War Conspiracy and their more ambitious documentary Aftermath- Unanswered Questions from 9/11.

Peter Dale Scott's website is www.peterdalescott.net.

A major point in his book- The Road to 9/11: Wealth, Empire and the Future of America was the structural shift in government that took place on 9/11 when Continuity of Government was implemented by Cheney, who in conjunction with Rumsfeld had been working on plans for it for decades.

In 9/11, Deep State Violence and the Hope of Internet Politics, Peter wrote:

    9/11, the Public, and Internet Politics

    This raises the question whether the public, about to vote in the 2008 election, can exercise the constitutional restraints that Congress and the media have failed to supply. The answer, I submit, lies in what I would call Internet Politics, the mobilization of nationwide pressures on candidates in the next election through internet coordination.

    There is I believe a latent majority of Americans who could agree to ask all candidates to

    a) review and revise the Military Commissions Act of 2006, to unequivocally restore habeas corpus, within the limitations of the U.S. Constitution, Article One, Section 9;

    b) unequivocally outlaw torture;

    c) review and restrict the provisions for warrantless electronic surveillance in the Protect America Act of 2007.

    d) vote for The American Freedom Agenda Act of 2007 (H.R. 3835), which addresses these and other issues. This bill was introduced by U.S. Rep. Ron Paul on October 15, 2007, and is supported by both the Republican American Freedom Agenda, and the Democratic American Freedom Campaign.82

    Those in the 911 Truth Movement could ask candidates to take two further steps

    d) insist on the right of the Homeland Security Committees in Congress to review the COG appendices to National Security Presidential Directive (NSPD)-51;

    e) support a law to force all government agencies to collaborate with the National Archives, in fulfillment of the 9/11 Commission’s commitment to release its supporting records to the public in 2009.83

    But social thought is socially fashioned. For it to be effective it must be mobilized, and become more than a chorus of bloggers croaking from our backwater lilypads in the blogomarsh. Clearly it would take a strenuous concerted effort to create or persuade a movement, such as MoveOn, to take on all these issues.

    Is it possible that some organization can be persuaded to accept this challenge, and take the first steps in mobilizing such a force?

I urged Peter to make his case and push his action plan. (He also agreed to walk his talk and speak at the 9/11 Truth Film Festival at the Grand Lake Theater in Oakland on September 11, 2008).

Time went by very quickly, and we had to digress somewhat, because of the recent significant events that have taken place in South Ossetia (See Chossudovsky's article- War in the Caucasus: Towards a Broader Russia-US Military Confrontation? which follow a pattern of provocation so well outlined in Peter Dale Scott's Korea (1950), the Tonkin Gulf Incident, and 9/11: Deep Events in Recent American History.

Peter drew on his vast historical knowledge to give context to the meaning and significance of the changes taking place in our time, and how we have a new power, opportunity to challenge the situation.

John Judge was also a founder of the Coalition on Political Assassinations (COPA)and featured in GNN's Aftermath speaking on Continuity of Government. He is also a co-founder of 911 CitizensWatch, a grassroots watchdog group demanding transparency and a thorough investigation of 9/11 and the Committee for High School Options and Information on Careers,Education and Self-Improvement (CHOICES),a group countering military recruitment in the schools and providing civilian alternatives.

John is active with the Washington Peace Center and has been an activist opposing war, racism and militarism since the 1960s. John is an independent researcher and lecturer on political assassinations, covert operations, hidden history, and the rise of fascism in America.

In addition to his website- judgeforyourself.us, his writings and insights can be found on www.ratical.org/ratville/JFK/JohnJudge/.

John gave a more detailed look specifically at the history of Continuity of Government, which is really a misnomer as it should be called "End of Government," as it replaces elected officials to serve the public with military tyrannies who seem to only try to enrich and extend their powers through force and fear.

He also gave a glimpse from his perch in Washington DC, where he witnessed how Congress was prevented from exercising its oversight mandate, and noted that in studying "Continuity of Government" and creating plans- Congress was deemed "expendable."

Next week's August 18, 2008 Power To the People Show with Green Party Presidential and Vice-Presidential candidates- Cynthia McKinney and Rosa Clemente. Details will be posted on the Questioning War- Organizing Resistance Blog.

Green Party Vice Presidential Candidate, Rosa Clemente, will speak in the first hour.

Tue., July 29, 2008: July 28, 2008- The Kick Them All Out Show with Bruce McDonald

Bruce McDonald is the webmaster and driving force behind the website-www.kickthemallout.com/, The Kick Them All Out Project. He is the President of element3, a small web site development and hosting company out of Colorado.

Roughly 3 years ago Bruce watched the film "The Corporation," a documentary that details exactly what those with the most wealth and power have swallowed up our nation and the world through the power of their corporations. It also details how they can get away unbelievable crimes against humanity, things they would not be allowed to get away with as individuals by simply hiding behind their corporate veils. Through their control of our government they can impose their will on all of us by simply passing legislation and regulations that are enforced by government police powers. Without the coercive powers of government, the people behind the most powerful corporations could not get away with what they are getting away with.

This knowledge moved Bruce to launch The Kick Them All Out Project, a campaign to rid our government and election process of the two most corrupting influences, corporate lobbyists and career politicians that have turned our government over to them. The Project has also launched the Fire Congress Campaign and Fire Congress Meetup Groups to facilitate the first step required to take back control of our Congress. As Bruce often says, until the power of our votes are FELT, we have no power. Politicians know we won't unite and vote them out. They are convinced we are too stupid and unfocused to ever pose any real threat to them. Until we demonstrate how wrong they are by voting them ALL out of office, they are absolutely right.

He is currently finishing up his first book entitled “We the people need to KICK THEM ALL OUT - The battle plan we need to fight and win the Third great American Revolution.” The book will be out this Summer.

Bruce basically laid out the problem and solution as he sees it. He was joined by a friend and supporter of his on the air, and we had lots of callers to raise questions and comments.

I wholeheartedly agree with the concept of ousting all the incumbents (except the rare few who actually serve people and not corporations, but I did play Devil's Advocate on the challenges of this effort (stolen elections, the violent threats/pressure on Congress coming from the Executive Branch...) A couple callers raised some very good points on the need to strengthen State Governments to preserve and protect the Constitution, our rights, and the people of the US from the tyrannical excesses of the Federal Government.

Next Week's Show August 4, 2008 will be a rebroadcast of the June 9th, 2008 Overcoming Individual Denial to 9/11 Truth Show with Carol Wolman, Ken Jenkins, Chuck Millar and Ralph Metzner

Future Shows scheduled

Tue., July 22, 2008: July 21, 2008- Free Gaza Show in the First Hour with Darlene Wallach, Kathleen Wang, Hedy Epstein, and Greta Berlin, in the second hour with Mary Hughes-Thompson, Bill Dienst, and David Halpin.

Our guests are part of The Free Gaza Movement who are gathering in Cyprus to voyage to the Gaza Strip to break through the blockade against urgently needed medical supplies. They write on their website:

    Mission Statement
    We want to break the siege of Gaza. We want to raise international awareness about the prison-like closure of the Gaza Strip and pressure the international community to review its sanctions policy and end its support for continued Israeli occupation. We want to uphold Palestine's right to welcome internationals as visitors, human rights observers, humanitarian aid workers, journalists, or otherwise.

    Who are we?
    We are these human rights observers, aid workers, and journalists. We have years of experience volunteering in Gaza and the West Bank at the invitation of Palestinians. But now, because of the increasing stranglehold of Israel's illegal occupation of Palestine, many of us find it almost impossible to enter Gaza, and an increasing number have been refused entry to Israel and the West Bank as well. Despite the great need for our work, the Israeli Government will not allow us in to do it.

    We are of all ages and backgrounds. Back home, we are teachers, medics, musicians, secretaries, parents, grandparents, lawyers, students, activists, actors, playwrights, politicians, singer-songwriters, web designers, international training consultants, and even a former Hollywood film industry worker and an aviator. We are South African, Australian, American, English, Israeli, Palestinian, and more.

    What are we going to do?
    We've tried to enter Palestine by land. We've tried to arrive by air. Now we're getting serious. We're taking a ship.

Darlene Wallach is a software engineer from San Jose. She has been a tireless activist for years working on a number of causes, especially those for peace and justice in the Middle East. In 2002 Darlene was one of eight International Solidarity Movement activists arrested by Israeli Forces and began fasting to protest her illegal arrest.

Kathleen Wang is 65 years old and a great grandmother. She has 7 grandchildren and 3 grown children. She belongs to Women in Black LA. This is her frist trip to Palestine.

Hedy Epstein was born in 1924 in Germany. She was 8 years old when Adolf Hitler came to power. She went to England on a children's transport, part of the almost 10,000 children that England took in between December 1938 and September 1, 1939, the beginning of World War II. She never saw her family again.

After the war, Hedy went back to Germany to work for the American government. First she was with the US Civil Censorship Division, and later she worked at the Nuremberg Medical Trial, which tried the doctors accused of performing medical experiments on concentration camp inmates.

She came to the United States in 1948. Soon, she became active professionally and personally in the causes of civil and human rights and social justice. Some of her causes have included fair housing, abortion rights, and antiwar activities. As a peace delegate, Hedy journeyed to Guatemala, Nicaragua, and Cambodia in 1989. Hedy visited the Israeli Occupied West Bank five times since 2003, to witness the facts on the ground. She participated in several non-violent demonstrations, together with Israelis, Palestinians & other internationals, in opposition to Israel's occupation of Palestinian land, the 25-foot high cement wall, and the demolition of Palestinian homes and olive orchards.

Greta Berlin, is a 66 year old businesswoman from Los Angeles. She is the mother of two Palestinian-American children and has been to the occupied territories twice in the past four years with the International Solidarity Movement. She is also a member of Women in Black Los Angeles.

Mary Hughes Thompson was born in Lancashire in 1933, lived in Canada from 1953 to 1961, when she moved to California, where she worked in the motion picture and television industry. She is a member of the Writers Guild of America and a private pilot. She wrote Olive Orchards and Armed Zealots in 2002 about her experience in Palestine, as part of the International Solidarity Movement when she was attacked by settlers.

Dr. Bill Dienst is a Family and Emergency Room physician in Omak, in rural Washington State. He has traveled to the Middle East four times, but he considers that he was raised as a product of the arms race. His father was an Air Force Colonel.

In Medical School he became active with peace groups. In 1985 after taking an intensive summer course in Arabic, he spent over 5 months in Egypt, the West Bank and Gaza volunteering with various Palestinian healthcare organizations.

He has enjoyed a wealth of cross cultural experiences in medicine with Crow and Northern Cheyenne Native American patients during his 3 years in Montana with the Indian Health Service, and with Colville tribal members and Hispanic patients in Okanogan County. He enrolled in immersion Spanish language courses in Honduras, El Salvador and Mexico totaling 6 weeks, where he lived with local families who did not speak English. He took three trips to Veracruz, Mexico with the Family Medicine Exchange Program, and has visited Cuba, as well as as Gaza.

In 2005 he was part of a delegation sponsored by Washington Physicians for Social Responsibility to Israel/Palestine. They met with prominent Palestinian groups and mostly Israeli Peace activists, and wrote all about it. In 2006 he volunteered with Palestine Medical Relief Society for one month in the North West Bank and in Gaza. His photo-journals from both trip are posted on electronicintifada.net/ (Enter Dienst in the search engine to find them).

David Halpin was born in Lyndhurst, England in 1940. He attended medical school at St Mary’s, Paddington. During his training David met his future wife, Sue, a nurse.

In 1964 he graduated and a glittering career followed, including teaching anatomy at King’s College, London, and working as a senior house officer at Bristol,posts at Exeter and Truro, six months teaching at Harvard, and an appointment as a consultant at Torbay and Princess Elizabeth hospitals in 1974. He also ventured into private practice. The intensely competitive nature of the surgical world drove that choice for him; success was often measured by the popularity of a surgeon’s private practice.

David and Sue adopted two children and fostered fourteen, from newborns to 16-year-olds, including three pairs of siblings. His love for children is one of the forces that drives him. He often says:

    "We have three beautiful grandchildren - girls. I look at their lustrous skin and hair and into their happy blue eyes. In those eyes I see the two billions of our world's children. They are all equally precious. Not one should be harmed."

He is passionate about the plight of the Palestinian people and was vehemently opposed to the wars on Afghanistan and Iraq. In 2002 David wanted to help the Palestinians, when a brilliant idea occurred to him. He would buy or charter a boat, fill it with food and medical supplies, and sail to Palestine. The voyage of The Dove and the Dolphin in the Danish MV Barbara started from Haldon Quay, Torquay on 1st February 2003 and finished the 3,100 sea miles to Gaza sixteen days later. The £70,000 cost of the mercy ship mission was paid by the Halpins and over £20,000 of donations from the public paid for the food. The voyage was a success, the Palestinians received the aid David Halpin supplied, and the publicity raised international consciousness of the Palestinian plight. He has visited Palestine six times since the voyage.

He also entered the public arena, with a group of other doctors, to seek a proper investigation of Dr David Kelly’s death. He says it is impossible that Dr Kelly died of haemorrhage from one small wrist artery, which is the first official cause of death. Furthermore, he considers it preposterous that this top scientist who knew all about the biology of death would have chosen a blunt pruning knife and co-proxamol tablets for his suicide. David Halpin was the first to publish these questions. His website is dhalpin.infoaction.org.uk.

These courageous, passionate, committed people detail their upcoming voyage, the thought, preparation, and purpose of their journey. Aside from David Halpin, who will be part of the support team in Cyprus, and won't actually be on the sailing vessels, they are dramatically risking their lives to accomplish four things-

    1) Open access to Gaza (right now the people of Gaza are cut off from vital medical supplies, international aid, basic supplies, people)
    2) Demonstrate physically that Israel is blockading Gaza when they do not have a right to do so- and deny that that is what they are doing. 3) Show solidarity with the Palestinian people. 4) Demonstrate the power of non-violent direct action.

They merit support, assistance and encouragement from the world, and certainly help in breaking the information barricade. Visit their website- www.freegaza.org to endorse, donate, learn more, and track their voyage. They hope to do a live video-stream of the voyage from their boats, so the world can witness their experience.

Next Show- July 28, 2008 Kick Them All Out Show with Bruce McDonald. Bruce is the webmaster of the Kick Them All Out! Project a valiant attempt to educate the public of the corruption and failure of the current Congress, and a plan to turn the situation around. McDonald writes:

    Our government is literally not our government any more. It is the private enforcement arm for those that own the most powerful corporations. Whatever the corporations' want, the government makes legal and enforces through laws, regulations, taxation and threat of jail time, something corporations could not do on their own.

    In order to stop these people, we must understand how they accomplished the hostile takeover of our government in the beginning. First, they took control of Congress by making it legal for their corporations to interfere. They accomplished this by planting a loophole in the Constitution. Then the loophole was exploited to award "human rights protections" for artificial corporate entities, which gave corporations the right to directly interfere with government and elections.

Join us as we examine McDonald's plan and do some brainstorming to replace the government "of, by and for corporations" to a government "of, by and for we the people."

Tue., July 15, 2008: July 14, 2008, Preventing Global War Show with Michael Andregg

Michael Andregg is the author of On the Causes of War, and the producer of Rethinking 9/11: Why Truth and Reconciliation are Better Strategies Than Global War.

Michael Andregg received his Ph.D. in behavior genetics from the University of California at Davis in 1977 after completing a triple-major bachelor’s degree (in genetics, zoology and anthropology). He studied monkeys in Morocco between the bachelor’s and the Ph.D., and has had an interdisciplinary life ever since.

After two years of postdoctoral research at the University of Minnesota hospitals, he focused on the causes of war since war is a much larger public health hazard than rare diseases. He has taught at Macalester and Gustavus Adolphus Colleges, and is currently a professor in Justice and Peace at the University of St. Thomas. He also teaches in the University of Minnesota graduate school (since 1998) and undergraduate since 1981. He started an education non-profit in 1982 called Ground Zero Minnesota, which has produced 57 television programs and sponsored several thousand educational programs in schools, churches, and civic groups.

Andregg’s book, “On the Causes of War” won a National Peacewriting Award in 1999, has been reprinted twice, republished in Canada and has been translated into Italian. He is on the boards of the International Society for the Comparative Study of Civilizations and the Hawkinson Foundation for Peace and Justice.

For the last several years he has studied spies focusing on issues of intelligence reform, has arranged over twenty panels for spy conferences in various parts of the world, edited a reader on intelligence ethics that has been used by the CIA and DIA, and was recently selected to write the chapter on ethics for a textbook on Intelligence Studies (2007).

In 2006 he won a “golden candle” award for bringing light to dark corners of the intelligence community. His latest project is “Rethinking 9/11: Why Truth and Reconciliation are Better Strategies Than Global War” resulting in a TV documentary released in February, 2008 with that title.

I met Michael in Minneapolis at the National Conference on Media Reform and we agreed that 9/11 was a special operation designed to initiate a "global war."

We discussed in the first hour 9/11 and the Intelligence Agencies.

In the second hour, Michael shared his idea of a general amnesty for the perpetrators of 9/11, on the condition that they reveal the truth about the operation, or their role in it, in order to prevent a much larger global war. We also discussed many of the issues he raised in his book.

Next Week's July 21, 2008 Free Gaza Show will be with activists, part of The Free Gaza Movement who are gathering in Cyprus to voyage to the Gaza Strip to breakthrough the blockade against urgently needed medical supplies. The courageous travelers include- David Halpin, Greta Berlin, Mary Hughes-Thompson, Darlene Wallach, Hedy Epstein, and Kathleen Wang. They write on their website:

    Mission Statement
    We want to break the siege of Gaza. We want to raise international awareness about the prison-like closure of the Gaza Strip and pressure the international community to review its sanctions policy and end its support for continued Israeli occupation. We want to uphold Palestine's right to welcome internationals as visitors, human rights observers, humanitarian aid workers, journalists, or otherwise.

    Who are we?
    We are these human rights observers, aid workers, and journalists. We have years of experience volunteering in Gaza and the West Bank at the invitation of Palestinians. But now, because of the increasing stranglehold of Israel's illegal occupation of Palestine, many of us find it almost impossible to enter Gaza, and an increasing number have been refused entry to Israel and the West Bank as well. Despite the great need for our work, the Israeli Government will not allow us in to do it.

    We are of all ages and backgrounds. Back home, we are teachers, medics, musicians, secretaries, parents, grandparents, lawyers, students, activists, actors, playwrights, politicians, singer-songwriters, web designers, international training consultants, and even a former Hollywood film industry worker and an aviator. We are South African, Australian, American, English, Israeli, Palestinian, and more.

    What are we going to do?
    We've tried to enter Palestine by land. We've tried to arrive by air. Now we're getting serious. We're taking a ship.

Tue., July 1, 2008: June 30, 2008 Movemet Building ShowIn the First Hour with William Lewis and Larry Pinkney and in the second hour with John Ennis and Marnie Glickman.

William Lewis lives in Columbia, Missouri, he is a writer, civil rights advocate, and award winning independent filmmaker specializing in producing patriotic-style documentaries that expose governmental abuse of power and focus viewers on a wide range of grassroots solutions. He has written and directed five documentaries to date; “911 In Plane Site,” the award winning “Beyond Treason,” “One Nation Under Siege,” “911 Ripple Effect," and most recently, ”Washington, You're Fired!" (2008).

His quest for bringing these important issues into the American mainstream prompted William to found Take Back Washington, a website and a political mindset to peacefully, and through education, bring the politics of Washington D.C. back into focus with our country’s founding documents.

William spoke about the actions of Congress which prompted him to make his film. He also shared an amazing anecdote about last week's guest, Jim Guest (one of our great champions against Real ID) and how Jim learned about Real ID from a very informed five year old girl, who meant to contact a Congressmen or Senator, but called her State Representative by mistake and informed him about Real ID.

Larry Pinkney is a veteran of the Black Panther Party, a former political prisoner and the only American to have successfully self-authored his civil/political rights case to the United Nations under the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights. For more about Larry Pinkney see the book, Saying No to Power: Autobiography of a 20th Century Activist and Thinker by William Mandel [Introduction by Howard Zinn]. Larry wrote an excellent article entitled- Barack Obama and the Euphoria of Madness recently on the Black Commentator website, he is on its editorial board.

Lary spoke scathingly of the corporate parties and the hope from the budding Reconstruction Party which began in the wake of Hurricane Katrina when they veil lifted for a moment and the entire country and world saw the shadow side of the US government.

John Ennis is the director of the film [See trailer at: Free for All! One Dude's Quest to Save Democracy]. Free For All will be posted in its entirety online on the 4th of July, and is really a very critical look at our electoral system and a rallying cry for citizen participation to save this country from having our country stolen from under our very noses. (Actually, he hints that the 2008 election has already been stolen, but that it is up to us- to steal it back...)

John has given a few sneak previews of his film- in LA, NYC, and at the Nat'l Conference on Media Reform, where I saw it, and met him, and Holly Mosher, Executive Producer. The film was entertaining, but included some of the most knowledgable, informative interviews with those best informed researchers who have been blowing the whistle on the stolen elections.

John "the dude" trying to save democracy does have a gift for making films- He attended the USC and NYU Film Schools. His production company Shoot First Inc. specializes in non-fiction entertainment.

His feature directorial debut was an improvised comedy, Wild Girls Gone, written by and starring the Upright Citizens Brigade (Amy Poehler, Matt Walsh, Ian Roberts, and Matt Besser). In Documentary, Ennis has dealt with pharmaceutical companies’ impropriety (the award-winning Money Talks: Profits Before Patient Safety), and has been a long-time documentarian of the sport of competitive eating (Major League Eaters; Red, White, & Yellow) He co-DP’ed A/K/A Tommy Chong, chronicling the comedian’s federal prosecution, which premiered at the Toronto Film Festival.

Ennis has produced and developed Reality TV for FremantleMedia, Rocket Science, RDF Media, and Nash Entertainment, and his work has been seen on NBC, FOX, CBS, ABC, TLC, BBC, even Oprah.

Ennis’s New York City cable access show Toolz of the New School was a cult hit in the late 1990’s. A combination of sketch and stunt comedy blended with political documentary and live Hip Hop, the show won awards, and screened in art galleries around the world.

Ennis has produced tons of music documentary, with many of today’s biggest artists, such as Weezer, Linkin Park, Fall Out Boy, Fergie, John Mayer, Jane’s Addiction, Ne-Yo, Sarah McLaughlin, Jack Johnson, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Audioslave, and many more. (visit shootfirstinc.com/ to see clips) Ennis also teaches documentary filmmaking at UCLA Extension.

John has pioneerd new media, so we spoke about media issues as well as about challenging the blatant stolen elections and getting people more involved to gain some control over our government.

Both filmmakers encourage people to get their films shown on community access and help with outreach efforts. They both are outstanding resources.

Marnie Glickman is the Executive Director of GreenChange.org is an experienced Green organizer. She is also an attorney. She worked for Commercial Alert, a non-profit organization dedicated to protecting communities from commercialism from 2003 to 2007. In 2003-4, she served as the co-chair of the Green Party of the United States. Marnie has worked on the campaigns of Joe Keating for Governor (OR, 2006), Cobb-LaMarche presidential campaign (2004), Ralph Nader for President (2000), Carl Mayer for Congress (NJ, 2000), Nita Lowey for Congress (NY, 1998), Tom Bruggere for US Senate (OR, 1996), Darlene Hooley for Congress (OR, 1997), Nancy Kaszak for Congress (IL, 1995-6), Eliabeth Furse for Congress (OR, 1994-5), Clinton-Gore (1992) and Tom Harkin for President (1992). In 1998, she was the deputy director for major gifts and a trainer at EMILY's List. Her first job in politics was working for Senator Paul Wellstone (DC and MN, 1991). Marnie lives in Fairfax, California with her husband, Gary Ruskin, and two year old daughter, Calliope.

Green Change strives to be a community of people with Green values: justice, democracy, sustainability and non-violence who work together to share Green art, politics and culture. People within the community have many different skills and talents. Some can write, or draw, or paint. Others take photographs, register voters, or do street theater. They encourage people to use their talents to make the world a better place. Anyone with Green values is welcome to join.

Green Change provides tools for sharing and expressing Green knowledge and inspiration. They help Green writers, musicians and artists spread the word about their work. They help people come together to take Green political action. They provide information and articles for people who want to learn more about what it is to be Green, live Green and act Green. The website says:

    "We make it easier to meet others like you, so that together you can build new Green communities, and help one another.

    "We believe there is power in working together. We have built the Green Change website to help people to create together, to solve problems, and to build a culture based on Green values.

    "We believe there are a million ways (or more) to advance Green art and causes. This website is intended to help you and your friends let a thousand flowers bloom."

Marnie shared the vision behind her work and some great advice.

Movement Building isn't only about bringing down oppressive systems, it is about creating better alternatives. All social movements help bring other movements along. When the Truth, Peace, Justice, Impeachment Movements fuse they will be unstoppable. For an overview on how Social Movements work and the 9/11 Truth Movement in particular see my plenary presentation from the Revealing the Truth: Reclaiming the Future Conference on Strategy for the 9/11 (and social) Movement.

Next Week's Show July 7, 2008 will be a replay of the May 26, 2008- Scientists, Architects and Engineers for 9/11 Truth Show with Kevin Ryan, Richard Gage, Ron Brookman, Kamal Obeid, Scott C. Grainger. Details are posted on Questioning War- Organizing Resistance.

Tue., June 24, 2008: June 23, 2008- 5-11 Campaign Against Real I.D. Show In the First Hour with Katherine Albrecht, Rep. James Guest,In the Second Hour with Sheila Dean

Katherine Albrecht, of CASPIAN (Consumers Against Supermarket Privacy Invasion and Numbering), is the co-author of Spychips: How Major Corporations Plan to Track your Every Move with RFID. In a nod to the book's focus on freedom, Spychips was awarded the prestigious Lysander Spooner Award for Advancing the Literature of Liberty and named "the best book on liberty" for 2005. (She is also a Radio Host on WTPRN. Her show is Uncovering the Truth 9 am - 11 am Mondays through Fridays.)

Katherine graduated magna cum laude with a Bachelor of Science degree in Business Administration with a concentration in International Marketing. She holds a Doctorate in Education from Harvard University with a research focus in consumer education, privacy and psychology.

Katherine shared her personal history on how she became aware of the issue and involved. She looked at the distinction and similarities between RFID and real ID or national identity cards- and the larger picture, as we are both learning about the supranational organizations that are mposing international biometric standards worldwide which will not just allow, but force data sharing on an international level.

James Guest is a Missouri State Representative (elected in 2002) and formed the coalition Legislators Against Real ID which includes lawmakers from 34 states to file bills that oppose or protest Real ID. About a dozen states have active legislation against Real ID, including Arizona, Georgia, Hawaii, Massachusetts, Missouri, New Hampshire, Oklahoma, Utah and Wyoming.

Rep. James Guest stated:

    "This is almost a frontal assault on the freedoms of America when they require us to carry a national ID to monitor where we are. That's going too far."

Jim gave a bit of his personal history, too, and how he became involved when he realized what was going on with real ID and realized that even if he protected people within his home state of Missouri, they might not be able to travel outside of Missouri, and he needed to alert legislators throughout thecountry to defeat this horrendous legislation. He has done his best, but urges all of us to get involved.

Jim also spoke about the money being earmarked for Missouri to be a hub for Real ID- perhaps in hopes of bribing Missouri to going along with the program, but he remains opposed. He sees it as a technique being used by the government to override opposition stemming from the "unfunded mandate argument." The technology is expensive and, of course, governements and corporations would like to see the people and taxpayers foot the bill for their own surveillance.

Sheila Deanis the blog Editor for BeatTheChip.org and Campaign manager for the 5-11 Campaign: Texans Against Real ID's . Sheila has been involved with media activism for World Can't Wait, The Los Angeles National Impeachment Center, Dennis Kucinich, Author Michael Weinstein, David Swanson, Ron Paul, and Focus The Nation, a national green teach-in event for Santa Monica College and UCLA. She writes-

    Since May 11th, 2008, states nationwide are grappling with Real IDs - a Congressional mandate for a nationalized ID card with potential to end identity security and privacy as we know it by late 2009. Those favoring the passage of The Real ID Act of 2005 have heralded it's amenity for both post-911 securities and an answer to documenting immigrants. Those who oppose it know the expensive federalized database technologies approved by the Department of Homeland Security to be grossly insecure while balking at the pan-American aspects of the IDs to cross Canadian and Mexican borders. Supreme Court lawsuits are stacking up from Texans suffering from the waiver of 36 federal laws based on the Act's call for a Mexican border wall fence. The mandated demands on state funding to use intrusive machine readable technologies top the list of complaints for those who seek to stop The Real ID Act of 2005.

    Sheila explained how she became involved with this issue and the evolution of the 5-11 Campaign Against Real ID. "Everyone knows what 9/11 signifies when they hear it." She would like people to equate "5-11" with a national identity card, the ability of governments/corporations to identify and access all your personal info through their combined databases, so that we might better organize ourselves to resist the global police state being constructed at this moment in time. She welcomes people to join the campaign and get involved through the 5-11 Campaign.org website. She is based in the capitol of Texas which is a critical state in this struggle against the national identity card, as well as the NAU transportation corridor, and the NAU, itself.

    A caller, and friend of Jim Guest who has worked on this issue also recommended that folks join in the petition drive for a redress of greivances at www.givemeliberty.org which will be petitioning the government on June 30th.

    Next week's June 30th - Movement Building Show will be with William Lewis, Larry Pinkney, John Ennis and Marnie Glickman.

    Currently based in Columbia, Missouri, William Lewis is a writer, civil rights advocate, and award winning independent filmmaker specializing in producing patriotic-style documentaries that expose governmental abuse of power and focus viewers on a wide range of grassroots solutions. Mr. Lewis has written and directed five documentaries to date; “911 In Plane Site,” the award winning “Beyond Treason,” “One Nation Under Siege,” “911 Ripple Effect," and most recently, "Washington, You're Fired!"

For more about Larry Pinkney see the book, Saying No to Power: Autobiography of a 20th Century Activist and Thinker by William Mandel [Introduction by Howard Zinn]. Larry is on the editorial board of the Black Commentator and wrote excellent articles questioning Obama and comparing him with the candidate skewered by the Democratic Party and the Media who has consistently spoken up on behalf of truth and people- Cynthia McKinney.

    John Ennis is the director of the film [See trailer at: Free for All! One Dude's Quest to Save Democracy]. Free For All will be posted in its entirety online on the 4th of July, and is really a very critical look at our electoral system and a rallying cry for citizen participation to save this country from having our country stolen from under our very noses.

She now lives in Fairfax, California.

    The new website is, yet, another tool to help people organize, educate themselves, legislators, the press, enable honest elected officials to find popular support to back them up when they challenge unjust, unconstitutional, tyrannical legislation and champion legislation to protect people and the environment from powerful corporations. It is also designed to create a more politically aware social space to strengthen the grassroots movements that are required to oppose and overcome the current assaults upon the American people and the world.

    Tue., June 17, 2008: June 16, 2008- Overcoming Collective Denial to 9/11 Truth (Part II of a two part series on Denial)with Peter Phillips and Neil Slade in the First Hour. In the Second hour a discussion with Neil Slade, Ken Jenkins, Carol Wolman and Chuck Millar

    Peter Phillips is a professor of Sociology at Sonoma State University and director of Project Censored Project Censored is a media research program working in cooperation with numerous independent media groups in the US. Project Censored’s principle objective is training of SSU students in media research and First Amendment issues and the advocacy for, and protection of, free press rights in the United States. Project Censored has trained over 1,500 students in investigative research in the past three decades.

    Through a partnership of faculty, students, and the community, Project Censored conducts research on important national news stories that are underreported, ignored, misrepresented, or censored by the US corporate media. Each year, Project Censored publishes a ranking of the top 25 most censored nationally important news stories in the yearbook, Censored: Media Democracy in Action, which is released in September.

    Peter Phillips is co-editor with Dennis Loo of the book, Impeach the President: The Case Against Bush and Cheney. He contributed a chapter entitledThe Global Dominance Group: 9/11 Pre-Warnings & Election Irregularities in Context to the book 9/11 and American Empire (Volume I) Intellectuals Speak Out. He has also helped to organize conferences around media accountability, and the most censored issues that threaten democracy and the world (Publicizing Truth with Consequence). At the Memphis National Media Reform Conference in January 2007, he spoke on the subject of the Independent media's poor coverage of stolen elections, impeachment, and 9/11 truth. This year his suggestions for panels and workshops were turned down and there were no speakers in the formal plenaries or workshops speaking about 9/11 truth (Although there was a well attended poster session where Peter did have a chance to speak.) He has much firsthand experience in breaking important issues into the mainstream and independent media.

    Peter shares his own experiences on raising the 9/11 Truth issue, the conferences, studies, surveys, and work he has done. He distinguishes between the corporate media and the independent media and shares some of the most censored stories that Project Censored will draw attention to in his next book. He also notes that identifying people as "Left gatekeepers" is not the way to win them over, but is more likely to polarize them and shut their minds to facts and information that they might actually look at, if approached in a less threatening manner.

    Neil Slade is a musical composer, seasoned concert performer, author, and artist. He also has a very interesting website on 9/11- www.911Think.com and produced the film Captain Sherlock Solves 9/11. He attended Metropolitan State College, the University of Colorado, and the University of Denver, and graduated Magna cum laude in 1978. Certified by the State of Colorado to teach grades Kindergarten through 12, he has taught for 30 years (starting before graduation) privately and in the public school system. Beyond his classroom instruction, he has taught an estimated 25,000 individual music and art lessons to students ages 6 through 66.

    Slade was assistant to Brain and Behavior Researcher T.D.A. Lingo, Ph.B., B.Sci. M.A., for 11 years at Colorado's Dormant Brain Research and Development Laboratory, established by director Lingo in 1957.

    For several years, Slade was employed full time to create and present therapeutic creativity, music, and art workshops at many of Colorado's major psychiatric and medical treatment centers. This included West Pines Psychiatric Hospital, Ft. Logan Mental Health Center, Denver General Psychiatric Ward, Mt. Airy Psychiatric Hospital, Children's Hospital of Denver, Denver Head Injury Clinic, as well as many public and private facilities.

    In an unprecedented original "Mind Music" program, Slade was employed by the principal of a Denver Public Elementary School to teach all 600 students and their teachers how to self-activate advanced levels of creativity, intelligence, and cooperative trust behavior by learning "brain basics". The program ended with teachers singing to their students and students dancing in the classroom.

    Neil has recorded and released 9 albums of original pop/jazz/classical/avant garde music, and has written and published five printed books and three audio CD books on learning, creativity, and the brain, along with one of book of romantic poetry.

    His books "The Frontal Lobes Supercharge" and "Have Fun are easy to use do-it-yourself manuals for turning on untapped areas of each and every persons' brain- "the other 90%". His revolutionary lessons let any person access pre-existing circuits for creativity, intelligence, and pleasure with methods and exercises proven under scientific investigation, as well as real world daily applications. "Have Fun" is a unique set of 35 "anti-rules" which reject common mis-perceptions and neutralizes common obstacles of doing and learning.

    He has written about the psychology of 9/11 perception suggesting approaches which would move people towards a higher, creative, problem solving level of conscousness, simply by equating- "Truth = Justice = Freedom." His main website is http://www.neilslade.com/.

    Neil describes his background and approach which is unique, and he has not reached the same conclusions that the other guests have reached about who was responsibile for 9/11, although he certainly agrees that the official narrative is impossible.

    Ken Jenkins, Carol Wolman and Chuck Millar who participated in the June 9, 2008 Overcoming Individual Denial to 9/11 Truth (Part I) Show join Neil in the second hour to discuss strategies and approaches to overcoming denial and there is some overlap between the individual and collective approaches.

    A caller raises the very insightful point that back in 1990, one had to pay a lot of money to get access to this sort of information, which was transformative and could turn one's worldview upside-down. Advances in technology now enable people to disseminate information freely and cheaply to an ever widening number of people and credibility in official sources, corporations, media are declining.

    Additional resources on this topic have come to my attention- including Psychorelativity and mindfulness by Kevin Ryan, Faulty Towers of Belief: (Part I) Demolishing the Iconic Psychological Barriers to 9/11 Truth and Faulty Towers of Belief: (Part II) Rebuilding the Road to the Freedom of Reason (Both papers by Laurie Manwell were published in the Journal of 9/11 Studies.

    Next Week's June 23, 2008- 5-11 Campaign Against Real ID Show Will include guests Katherine Albrecht, of CASPIAN (Consumers Against Supermarket Privacy Invasion and Numbering, author of Spychips (And a Radio Host on WTPRN), and Jim Guest from Legislators Against Real ID and Sheila Dean of the 5-11 Campaign.

    Tue., June 10, 2008: June 9, 2008- (Part I of a Two Part Series on Denial)Overcoming Individual Denial to 9/11 Truth) First Hour with Carol Wolman and Ken Jenkins, Second Hour with Chuck Millar and Ralph Metzner

    Carol Wolman, MD is a psychiatrist in Northern California. She wrote Why the Resistance to 9/11 Truth?. A lifelong peace activist, she has written extensively on the psychology of our times. She was a founder of Bay Area Impeach Bush-Cheney. She ran for Congress in '06, and is now a Green candidate for Congress in CA District 1. She is a coordinator of The New Broom Coalition, for a clean sweep of Congress. She has practiced psychiatry for many years, and penned many excellent articles including- Is the President Nuts?.

    Today was a rather pivotal day with Dennis Kucinich introducing articles of Impeachment in Congress, including Bush and Cheney's efforts to block a real investigation into 9/11. Public revelations, statements, and questions coming out at this time are and will have an effect on the collective awareness and, in turn will help individuals to overcome denial to facts, as they continue to emerge.

    Carol suggested looking at denial as part of a process of grief to help others to get through it.

    Pioneering 9/11 activist and video producer Ken Jenkins has a degree in electrical engineering from Carnegie-Mellon University, and has done extensive postgraduate study in psychology. He has worked as a video professional for over 30 years, including 7 years at Hewlett-Packard in their state-of-the-art broadcast video facility HPTV.

    Ken awoke to 9/11 truth by November of 2001 and started presenting his PowerPoint and video productions on 9/11 truth in early 2002. He has since spoken at four international 9/11 conferences on the Psychological Aspects of 9/11 and participated in numerous other 9/11 events and radio programs. His first video release,“Perspective on 9/11” was originally made for the early live presentations. He has since produced dozens of 9/11 DVDs, including eight with leading 9/11 Truth author David Ray Griffin, including his best-“9/11 – The Myth and the Reality” and his latest- 9/11 and Nationalist Faith: How Faith Can Be Illuminating or Blinding.

    He is also a partner in 911tv.org, which has documented speakers from many 9/11 conferences and events. The resulting DVDs, as well as those produced by others, are distributed in part through cable access channels nationwide. Ken also designed the popular 11 Remarkable Facts About 9/11 card. By revealing the “false flag” nature of the 9/11 attacks, it is Ken’s intention to not only help end the current bogus “war on terror” but to also help open the way to ending war as a political option on this planet.

    Ken suggested that empathy is very important when engaging others on 9/11, as well as understanding that the event was meant to traumatize people and relying on evoking fears to disengage brains from critically thinking about the event. When we hit resistance, we are encountering people's fears and generally we meet resistance. Ken wrote an excellent artcle A Gradual Awakening and suggests patience, compassion on the part of activists, because a sudden shock- revelations could cause severe shocks on the systems, but a slower process allows people to help others through a transition period, what most of us activists have been through, as our worldviews have been changed in the wake of 9/11.

    Chuck Millar received his Ph.D. in Counseling Psychology from the California Institute of Integral Studies and has been in private practice as a Marriage and Family Therapist since 1987. He has been a 9/11 Truth activist since 2003, attending numerous demonstrations and events.

    Chuck added to what Ken said, noting that the natural resistance we encounter is a message to us to not force on people facts that they cannot handle, but to give them the space to learn for themselves and figure things out for themselves. He also felt we should reframe the discussion because "overcoming denial" does sound like we "know what the truth is" and judges others to be ignorant. We need to be more sensitive to be able to engage in genuine dialogue to share our own experience, the truths we believe, and to allow others to express their experience and the truths they believe, to learn from one another, rather than force our worldviews upon others. He also liked the idea of a Truth and Reconsciliation Process for the United States to collectively deal with the trauma of these past several years.

    Joining us at the last minute, due to technical difficulities only in the last 15 minutes of the show (because he'll be on an airplane next week- so can't join us on the show on "Collective Denial") was Ralph Metzner, a pioneer in the studies of consciousness and its transformations. A psychotherapist and Professor Emeritous at the California Institute of Integral Studies, where he was the Academic Dean for ten years. He collaborated with Timothy Leary and Richard Alpert (Ram Dass) in the studies of psychedelic drugs at Harvard in the 60s. His most recent book is The Expansion of Consciousness. He is a founder of the Green Earth Foundation.

    Ralph shared his own experience, which was a gradual one, to recognizing the historical parallels of 9/11 to the Reichstag Fire. He described his experience in Germany, as a child, his increased understanding of false flag operations from historical research that has emerged in the past decade, and making the giant leap from "allowing it" to elements within the goverment actively being "complicit" in the crime. It's a huge shock to people which he believes should not be forced upon anyone. People need to seek the answers to the questions first.

    (June 16th- Part II will be on Overcoming Collective Denial to 9/11 Truth with sociologist Peter Phillips, director of Project Censored, film maker and author Neil Slade, followed by a discussion/brainstorming/dialogue.

    Tue., June 3, 2008: June 2, 2008- Monetary Crisis - and Solutions Show In the first hour with Richard C. Cook., in the second hour with Ellen Brown.

    Richard Cook is a former federal government analyst who was one of the key figures in the investigation of the space shuttle Challenger disaster.

    In 1985, he went to work for NASA as the lead resource analyst for the space shuttle solid rocket boosters, external tank, and Centaur upper stage. Cook’s first assignment led to his writing a memo on engineers’ concerns that flaws with the solid rocket booster O-ring seals could cause the shuttle to blow up. In 1986, after the Challenger disaster, he disrupted a NASA cover-up when he provided his memo, along with other documents on the hazards of the O-rings, to the New York Times. His disclosures paved the way for revelations by engineers from Morton Thiokol, Inc., about how they opposed the launch of Challenger the night before lift-off.

    Called to testify before the Presidential Commission at an internationally televised public hearing, Cook stood his ground when his experience and competence were challenged. He continued to contribute to the investigation during interviews with Commission staff and the NASA Office of Inspector General and in meetings with Senator Ernest Hollings, who was trying to raise issues before the Senate on whether there had been White House pressure to launch Challenger.

    In addition to extensive interviews with the media after the disaster, Cook published articles in the Washington Post, Washington Monthly, Space and Security News, and the Houston Post; gave a press conference with the Institute of Space and Security Studies, where he said that the Presidential Commission had been created to cover-up the role of the White House in the launch decision; and wrote a report which he submitted to the U.S. Justice Department with a request for a new investigation. In 1991, he was the recipient of the Cavallo Foundation Award for Moral Courage in Business and Government, sharing the award with Roger Boisjoly of Morton Thiokol.

    Before joining NASA, Cook worked as an analyst for the U.S. Civil Service Commission, where he received extensive training in federal government operations. He then worked for the Food and Drug Administration and next served in the Jimmy Carter White House under Esther Peterson, special assistant to the president for consumer affairs. He also taught history at the Field School, a private high school in Washington, D.C.

    Cook left NASA to become an analyst with the U.S. Treasury Department in 1986. There he developed and taught training courses on policy analysis and led project teams on financial policy and organizational restructuring. He authored Challenger Revealed- An Insider’s Account of How the Reagan Administration Caused the Greatest Tragedy of the Space Age in 2006. He retired from the federal government in January 2007 and works today as a writer, lecturer, and consultant. His website is richardccook.com.

    Cook graduated with honors from the College of William and Mary, where he was elected to Phi Beta Kappa. He resides in College Park, Maryland.

    One of his areas of interest has been the monetary system and he has written a series of articles about the current financial crisis including- Extraordinary Times, Intentional Collapse, and Takedown of the U.S.A., Has the Battle for America Begun?, and An Emergency Program of Monetary Reform for the United States.

    He spoke recently on Will We See the End of the Empire in Our Time? at the Building a New World Conference". His forthcoming book is entitled We Hold These Truths: The Hope of Monetary Reform and he can be contacted regarding the book at economicsanity@gmail.com.

    Richard spoke about the current crisis we're in, particularly what is not reported in the press or widely understood by the public about money creation, debt, and credit and the financial shenanigans that are impoverishing the country. He also oferred his ideas for monetary reform, including the abolition of the Federal Reserve, national control over the creation of credit and a citizen's dividend.

    Ellen Brown developed her research skills as an attorney practicing civil litigation in Los Angeles. In The Web of Debt- The Shocking Truth About Our Money System And How We Can Break Free, her latest book, she turns those skills to an analysis of the Federal Reserve and "the money trust." She shows how this private cartel has usurped the power to create money from the people themselves, and how we the people can get it back.

    Brown developed an interest in the developing world and its problems while living abroad for eleven years in Kenya, Honduras, Guatemala and Nicaragua. She returned to practicing law when she was asked to join the legal team of a popular Tijuana healer with an innovative cancer therapy, who was targeted by the chemotherapy industry in the 1990s. That experience produced her book Forbidden Medicine, which traces the suppression of natural health treatments to the same corrupting influences that have captured the money system. her recent articles include: The Secret Bailout of J. P. Morgan: How Insider Trading Looted Bear Stearns and the American Taxpayer and Credit Default Swaps: Evolving Financial Meltdown and Derivative Disaster Du Jour.

    Ellen also attended and was energized by the Building a New World Conference" and full of ideas on what we could do- including starting our own bank! Her understanding of the Constitution, history, the frauds and crimes committed by the banks and the officials assisting them in their looting activities are enormous and inspiring. There are huge numbers of people that could be educated and organized to stand up for their rights, their homes, at this moment in time. Despite the direness of the situation, reform is long overdue and the situation is bad enough so that people are unlikely to tolerate a blatantly bad system, if introduced to a betterone that would serve (rather than fleece) their communities and their country. More people are waking up and organizing and Ellen remained hopeful and optimistic. Do check out her excellent book, and articles!

    June 9th and June 16th, 2008- Overcoming Denial to 9/11 Truth Shows Our next two shows will be looking at Individual Denial (Part I- June 9th) and Collective Denial (Part II- June 16th) to 9/11 Truth.

    Guests in the first hour of Part One Individual Denial) will be Psychiatrist Carol Wolman and film maker Ken Jenkins, in the second hour we will be joined by Therapist Chuck Millar

    Carol S. Wolman, MD is a psychiatrist in Northern California. A lifelong peace activist, she has written extensively on the psychology of our times. She was a founder of Bay Area Impeach Bush-Cheney. She ran for Congress in '06, and is now a Gteen candidate for Congress in CA district 1 on an Impeachment, Peace platform. She is a coordinator of The New Broom Coalition, for a clean sweep of Congress. She wrote Why the resistance to 9-11 truth? in February 2007.

    Ken Jenkins has spoken a great deal on the psychological aspects of 9/11 and produced many films on the subject, including almost all of the David Ray Griffin DVDs. He was one of the main organizers for the San Francisco International Inquiry into 9/11 and very active with the Northern california 9-11 Truth Alliance.

    Chuck Millar received his Ph.D. in Counseling Psychology from the California Institute of Integral Studies and has been in private practice as a Marriage and Family Therapist since 1987. He has been a 9/11 Truth activist since 2003, and participated in many rallies, events, marches, meetings.

    Part II- June 16th Collective Denial will feature Sociologist Peter Phillips (Project Censored), Film Maker and author Neil Salde, and Psychologist and author, Ralph Metzner.

May 2008

Tue., May 27, 2008: May 26, 2008- Scientists, Architects and Engineers for 9/11 Truth- First Hour with Kevin Ryan and Richard Gage, AIA Second Hour with Richard Gage, AIA, Ron Brookman, S.E., Kamal Obeid, S.E., Scott C. Grainger, S.E..

Kevin Ryan is a former Site Manager for Environmental Health Laboratories, a division of Underwriters Laboratories (UL). Mr. Ryan, a Chemist and laboratory manager, was fired by UL in 2004 for publicly questioning the report being drafted by the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) on their World Trade Center investigation. In the intervening period, Ryan has completed additional research while his original questions, which have become increasingly important over time, remain unanswered by UL or NIST.

Through interviews, presentations, and his work as co-editor at the online Journal of 911 Studies, Mr. Ryan works to bring out the truth behind the events of 9/11/01 for the benefit of all people. His story and articles are available through www.ultruth.com including a paer he co-authored which was published in the peer reviewed Bentham Open Civil Engineering Journal entitled Fourteen Points of Agreement with Official Government Reports on the World Trade Center Destruction

Kevin filed a suit against UL for wrongful dismissal, which was also one way of of trying to gain subpoena power to access documents which could cast more light on the questions he raised about UL's certification of the steel for the WTC and their subsequent studies for NIST, but it was dismissed. Kevin mentioned that the lawyer UL obtained, also served on the 9/11 Commission.

He described another paper posted at the Journal of 9/11 Studies which looked at the spheres found in the dust as evidence of very high temperatures and explosives, also chips of explosive material were also found in the dust.

He also spoke briefly on the failure of "Bush Science" or the record of the Bush Administration at manipulating scientific research to suit their policies and how NIST is part of the Commerce Department, headed by Bush appointees, and the closer one looks at who was involved with the NIST ivestigation, the more apparent that the investigation was compromised by "conflicts of interests." He wrote a paper about it entitled 9/11: Looking for Truth in Credentials: The Peculiar WTC “Experts”

We were joined by Richard Gage, AIA. Kevin is also a member of Architects and Engineers for 9/11 Truth and we are friends. Kevin just sent Richard some unpublished photos and they described them somewhat. Apparently the photos were of cars in the parking structure beneath the WTC, parts of which did not suffer "global collapse," but did experience extremely high temperatures.

In the Second Hour-

Richard Gage, AIA is the founding member of ae911Truth.org. He has been a practicing Architect for 20 years and has worked on most types of building construction including numerous fire-proofed steel-framed buildings. He is employed with a San Francisco Bay Area architecture firm and has most recently performed Construction Administration services for a new $120M High School campus including a $10M steel-framed Gymnasium. Currently he is working on the Design Development for a very large mixed use urban project with 1.2M sq.ft. of retail and 320K sq.ft. of mid-rise office space — altogether about 1,200 tons of steel framing.

He has been one of the most tireless speakers on the issue of 9/11 truth, and more specifically on challenging the official narrative of the disintegration of the 3 major skyscrapers in the World trade Center complex that took place on September 11th. He has been lecturing widely across the US and in Canada, most recently at M.I.T. Those who see his presentation rarely walk away still thinking that fires alone could have brought down the buildings.

Richard described his experience at M.I.T. which was a successful lecture (even if Noam Chomsky failed to show up). On the ae911truth.org website, apparently they post the poslls that they do prior to each lecture, to see where the audience stands on the subject, and how many people change their minds on the "cause of the collapse of the buildings." Generally they convert most of the audience who initially believed that the buildings came down because of fire to the idea of "controlled demolition," by the end of their presentation.

Next we were joined by- Kamal Obeid, S.E. is also a licensed Structural Engineer who signed the Architects and engineers for 9/11 Truth petition and wrote this statement:

    "Only recently have I begun to examine the structural collapse of the buildings. Photos of the steel, evidence about how the buildings collapsed, the unexplainable collapse of WTC 7, evidence of thermite in the debris as well as several other red flags, are quite troubling indications of well planned and controlled demolition "
And then joined by- Ron Brookman, S.E. is a member of Architects and Engineers for 9/11 Truth. He is a licensed structural engineer in the state of California. He obtained B.S. Civil Engineering (1984) and M.S. Structural Engineering (1986) degrees from the University of California at Davis, and has over 21 years experience in structural analysis, design, evaluation and rehabilitation of buildings in Northern California.

In his public statement he says-

    One of our primary responsibilities as architects and engineers is to ensure public safety in and around our structures, and we take this seriously. It is also our responsibility as concerned American citizens to ask questions and seek honest answers. I encourage everyone to read the numerous books, technical reports and papers about the WTC; look closely at the photographs and videos; listen to the speakers with an open mind. Decide for yourself, and take a stand for what you believe. As a structural engineer I believe in the laws of physics and rely on them every day.

    After much reading and studying it is obvious that NIST, FEMA and the 9/11 Commission have all fallen short of a detailed accounting of the catastrophic collapses of the three World Trade Center buildings in Manhattan on 9/11/01. A few examples of unexplained details include the "severe high temperature corrosion attack on the steel" as described in Appendix C of the FEMA Building Performance Study, the complete symmetrical collapses following asymmetric structural damage and short-term fires, and the chemical signature of incendiary compounds found in the toxic WTC dust.

    I would really like to know why complete collapse of the twin towers "became inevitable" as expressed by NIST without any scientific analysis to substantiate it. Why would all 110 stories drop straight down to the ground in about 10 seconds, pulverizing most of the contents into dust and ash - twice? Why would WTC 7 fall straight down to the ground in about seven seconds the same day? It was not struck by any aircraft or engulfed in any fire. An independent investigation is justified - and necessary - for all three collapses.

Ron described how a friend gave him a CD of Richard's talk on KPFA, which led him to the website and how he studied the subject in depth and joined ae911truth.org, but he was somewhat disheartened by the lack of interest shown by his immediate peers. He did however begin writing to his legislaters and NIST, raising very important questions.

Kamal Obeid, S.E. also described his own experience with the information- including through his professional associations many presentations giving the point of view of NIST. It wasn't until he saw Richard Gage's presentation that he began to grasp what was not adding up and plunged more seriously into understanding the subject. He also believes very strongly in the oath that engineers take- to expose fraud.

I asked him whether he would consider the NIST Report "a fraud," and he said "No, but it definitely had severe omissions."

We were joined then by- Scott C. Grainger, S.E., President and Chief Engineer, is a licensed Civil and/or Fire Protection Engineer in the states of Arizona, Colorado, New Mexico, New York, Virginia, California, Nevada and Washington. He is the owner of Grainger Consulting, Inc. A fire protection engineering firm (23 years). Approximately 50% of his work is forensic. In addition to my forensic work, a good portion of my work is in the design of structural fireproofing systems. Regarding 9/11, he wrote:

    All three collapses were very uniform in nature. Natural collapses due to unplanned events are not uniform.

Scott also shared his story about how he found "Architects and Engineers for 9/11 Truth" which made it much easier for him to share his understanding, expertise and point of view.

He also spoke about how the NIST recommendations were fought by his profession and how now more studies and research into improving fire safety in skyscrapers based upon the failure of the three WTC buildings seem to be a "waste of tax dollars."

One caller also spoke of his experience on oil wells, which are sometimes exposed to terrible fires and how those steel structures should help people to understand how unlikely it is for steel to fail due to "office fires or a short fire like the ones we witnessed on 9/11." Next Show- June 2, 2008- Monetary Crisis an Solutions Showin the first hour with Richard C. Cook, whose forthcoming book is entitled- We Hold These Truths: The Hope of Monetary Reform and in the second hour with Ellen Brown, author of The Web of Debt- The Shocking Truth About Our Money System And How We Can Break Free.

Both authors have written extensively on the current financial crisis and solutions. More details and links will be posted at the Questioning War-Organizing Resistance Blog.


Mon., May 26, 2008: Playlists: M3U | RAM (Individual MP3s: Hr1 Hr2 )

Tue., May 20, 2008: May 19, 2008 - 9/11 Truth and Impeachment Show 9/11 Truth in the First Hour with State Senator Karen Johnson and Eric Larsen, Impeachment in the second hour with Phil Burk, Barbara Ellis, Carol Wolman and Brad Newsham.

Warning- we did have some technical difficulties with this show- So Senator Johnson begins at about 17 minutes after the hour...

The first hour's focus is on 9/11 Truth

State Senator Karen Johnson recently peened an Op-Ed entitled We deserve the full truth about 9/11 and came out publicly in support of Architects and Engineers for 9/11 Truth. She wrote to those who applauded her for speaking out:

    Just to tell you a little bit more about myself, I’ve been looking at the 9/11 controversy for quite awhile. I’ve attended a number of lectures, have read many articles, and I think I’ve watched every DVD out there. I also have looked at many web sites. As a legislator, I’ve learned that it’s very important to hear all sides of an issue. I’m very appreciative of the work of Richard Gage and Dr. Steven Jones and so many others who have been doing research and leading the effort to get a new investigation. This research has persuaded me that I needed to stand up and be counted. My husband, Jerry, is very supportive of me (but he’s sick of attending meetings after all these years!) and my concerns about the 9/11 investigation. We have 33 grandchildren with one on the way, and we don’t want to leave them a society where people cannot get honest answers to reasonable questions.
Karen described the circumstances which prompted her to publicly defend statements critical of the US government's on a 9/11 memorial, in defense of 1st Amendment Rights, and to state simply that there were unanswered questions about 9/11 which led to attacks upon her. She then wrote the Op-Ed.

Eric Larsen is the author of A Nation Gone Blind: America in an Age of Simplification and Deceit and recently penned- The Debate Over 9/11- NOTES FROM A DYING NATION Number Three. His powerful voice and website have been muted mysteriously and deserve to be heard. Eric Larsen was born in Northfield, Minnesota, where, after attending the public schools, he graduated from Carleton College in 1963. He took an M.A. in English from the University of Iowa and in 1971 completed his Ph.D. there, with Robert Scholes as one of his faculty advisors. For his dissertation, under the direction of William Cotter Murray, he wrote a volume of original stories accompanied by his own critical commentaries.

In 1971, after living abroad for two years, Larsen joined the English Department of John Jay College of Criminal Justice, CUNY, and remained there until his retirement in early 2006. He is married to the editor Anne Larsen. The couple have two grown daughters.

Larsen published stories and essays in quarterlies and magazines throughout the 1970s and 1980s, and in 1988 Algonquin Books of Chapel Hill brought out his novel “An American Memory,” which became the winner of the Chicago Tribune’s inaugural Heartland Prize for the year’s best novel of or about the middle west.

In 1992, Algonquin published “I Am Zoë Handke,” a novel complementing and advancing several of the elements and themes of “An American Memory.” Changes in the national mood, in reading habits, in academics, and in popular taste from the early 1990s on brought about a situation whereby Larsen’s third and fourth novels (“The End of the 19th Century” and “The Decline and Fall of the American Nation”), making up a tetralogy, remain unpublished. In spring 2006, Shoemaker & Hoard published his book of political and cultural criticism, “A Nation Gone Blind: America in an Age of Simplification and Deceit.” Here is a great review posted at Online Journal.

Eric described his personal experience on 9/11 and his failure to grasp the failure of the official story despite his basic knowledge of High School physics and the time it took the buildings to disintegrate. His own research was sparked by reading Gore Vidal, and subsequently many volumes on 9/11. He feels that the media is as guilty of 9/11 as the perpetrators, by allowing the cover story to stand and not holding those responsible accountable.

A caller reminded us of Dan Rather's remark on the state of the media in the US and the necklacing with burning tires that took place in South Africa- the fear of journalists to challenge the powers that be...

In the Second Hour, we focus on Impeachment

Phil Burk is a software and hardware developer who has kept up the outstanding impeachment website- www.impeachbush.tv and has publicly championed Impeachment at various forums. In April he went to New Hampshire where there was an effort to get an Impeachment Resolution passed in the State Legislature.

Phil described how the Resolution was challenged line by line by one man, very effectively, but not for content- simply language. They learned from the experience and reworded the resolution and it wass passed by the State Democratic Party and will be reintroduced to the legislature. Hopefully the new version will pass. ** cities (at least) have already passed Impeachment Resolutions and the pressure on Congress to move forward on impeachment continues to mount.

Phil suggests that everyone try to pressure their Congresspeople when they come home on "recess" during the last week of May. Code Pink is also organizing, and urging folks to do banner drops/freeway blogging with Impeachment/end the war themes.

Dr. Barbara G. Ellis has been working tirelessly for impeachment and spoke about the "Nixon Flooding Plan," and the impeachment ad that ran in Roll Call which all members of congress receive. She also spoke about another high crime which might be reason enough to impeach Bush- the illegal 29- 150 Billion dollar bailout that Bush urged the Federal Reserve to give to Morgan Chase to bail out Bear Stearns. (See Gretchen Morgenson's recent NYT's article-what a Deal: Trash for Treasuries.

Ellis worked her way to a Pacific University BA as a reporter/photographer/copyeditor for the Forest Grove News-Times. It was training that led her to be a LIFE magazine reporter, then editorial page editor and writer for the Beirut (Lebanon) Daily Star, copyeditor at the Washington (DC) Evening Star, associate editor at International Medical News Group, and publications director for Portland's Standard Insurance Co. Ellis was an assistant professor of technical journalism at Oregon State University, and assistant chair and professor of mass communication at Louisiana's McNeese State University. She has written six books, one of which— The Moving Appeal —was nominated for the 2004 Pulitzer Prize in history. She is the principal in Ellis Associates, LLC of Portland, a free-lance writing firm, and involved in screenwriting and political journalism and activism. Ellis holds an MA in journalism from the University of Minnesota, and a doctorate in English from Oregon State. A local activist, she's a member of the South Side DemocracyforAmerica Meetup Group, the Portland chapter of We the People National Coalition for Impeachment, a campaigner for Steve Novick's senatorial race, and a member of Portland's 9/11 Truth Alliance as well as being one of the 650 members of Scholars for 9/11 Truth & Justice organization. She was married to a National Geographic senior writer and has two grown children, one granddaughter. Carol Wolman has worked tirelessly for impeachment. In 2006 she was a write in Congressional candidate for Impeachment, this year she is on the ballot as a Green Party Candidate for Impeachment. She has also been working to build The Longhouse Coalition and the New Broom Coalition to build a stronger grassroots movement to support people who favor peace over war, people over corporations, planet over profits, justice. She has practiced psychiatry for many years and penned many excellent articles including- Is the President Nuts?. Her husband and son have also contributed to her work and produced a film entitled- High Crimes and Atrocities documenting the grounds for impeachment.

She describes in detail what happened when Pelosi and Conyers cut a deal to "Take Impeachment Off the Table" and her efforts to put it back on the table. Brad Newsham organized multiple Beach Impeach events. He is also an author who has published accounts of his travels ( Take Me With You & All the Right Places )and drives a cab. Recently he announced his committment to run for Congress as a write-in candidate against Barbara Lee because she is not pushing for Impeachment. He is part of a growing coalition of Impeachment candidates and is urging people to run as write-in Impeachment candidates in every Congressional district across the nation.

Brad described his successful Beach Impeaches, his experience with his Congresswoman Barbara Lee, who is no longer his hero, since she has gone along with Pelosi and will do little more than the windowdressing of co-signing Kucinich's "Impeach Cheney First Bill." He also told about Shirley Golub's efforts, which included helping with Impeach Beach V, and organizing the play- "I", The Impeachment Trial of George W. Bush and Richard B. Cheneywhich premiered last weekend in San Francisco.

Next Show- May 26, 2008- 9/11 Truth Show with Scientists, Architects and Engineers for 9/11 Truth, including Kevin Ryan, the heroic whistle blower from UL, editor now of The Journal of 9/11 Studies and Ron Brookman, structural engineer, with a masters degree in Engineering from UC Davis, from Novato California, member of Architects and Engineers for 9/11 Truth. More details will be posted at the Mon., May 19, 2008: Playlists: M3U | RAM (Individual MP3s: Hr1 Hr2 )


Tue., May 13, 2008: May 12, 2008 Media Evolution Show- In the First Hour with Bill Densmore and Michele Ferriere. In the Second Hour with Kara Andrade and Josh Wolf.

Our guests recently attended the NewsTools2008.org Conference- a conceptual mashup for journalists, technologists and entrepreneurs that took place April 30- May 2 (Link to a My Report on the NewsTools Conference for 9/11 Truth Activists) (And Josh Wolf's Live Blog Report on the NewsTools Conference

Bill Densmore is director/editor of the Media Giraffe Project at the Univ. of Massachusetts-Amherst, and the New England News Forum. The MGP, launched in March, 2005, is an effort to find and spotlight individuals making sustainable, innovative use of media (old and new) to foster participatory democracy and community.

A career journalist, he has been an editor/writer for The Associated Press, for trade publications in business, law and insurance; and freelanced for general circulation dailies including the Boston Globe. He has written for ComputerWorld Magazine. Bill was one of the organizers of the recent conference is also organizing another Journalism That Matters Conference- New Pamphleteers/New Reporters: Convening Entrepreneurs Who Combine Journalism, Democracy, Place and Blogs, preceding the next big National Conference on Media Reform to take place in Minneapolis, June 6-8th.

He spoke about the Media Giraffe Project, and Journalism That Matters. I asked him about censorship of topics (such as 9/11 Truth, Stolen Elections and Impeachment within the Independent media and corporate press that I saw at the National Conferences on Media Reform and he applauded Project Censored's work and said that most journalists would agree that those subjects didn't get the coverage they deserved.

Dr. Michelle Ferrier is a digital content architect and a scholar-practitioner of digital media. She divides her life between developing and researching online communities and knowledge management. She is a 20-year veteran of both print and online content development.

Kara described her current passion which is learning and using Final Cut to produce videos. Adept at technology, she described her on way of getting and processing news and information for herself, personally, as well as the website where she works behind the scenes and as an editor. She also filmed and streamed the Newstools Conference and posted it on our Ning site (which I was only vaguely aware of) for the benefit of people from Scotland and other countries who wanted to be there, but couldn't attend and spoke of the desirability of making information accessible in different ways through many portals.

A caller asked us what would we do if Iran is attacked tomorrow.

Joshua Wolf (born in 1982) is an American video blogger, freelance journalist, and filmmaker who was jailed by a Federal district court on August 1, 2006 for refusing to turn over a collection of videotapes he recorded during a July 2005 demonstration in San Francisco, California. Wolf served 226 days in prison at the Federal Correctional Institution, Dublin, California, longer than any other journalist in U.S. history has served for protecting source materials. With permission from the prosecution, U.S. District Judge William Alsup ordered Wolf's release on April 3, 2007.

On July 4, 2007, Wolf announced that he had filed a declaration of intent to run for mayor of San Francisco against incumbent Gavin Newsom. He has been a media activist for years and has just begun a new project. At the conference he was offered $500 towards his $1500 funding needs. He was amongst the most insightful, creative, technologically able, new media activists at the conference.

We spoke about his campaign against Newsom, the debates that he organized tht nesom did not attend, and how the media picked up on one facet of the campaign- his pledge to wear a video camera and constantly blog his public actions, if elected mayor. Certainly politicians ouldn't get away with many of their schemes, if the public could keep a closer eye on them.

Josh described his current projects, both in development- one a live videoblogging NEWS site and the other a better news site which allows different points of view to engage in real dialogue, which still has yet to move into design phase.

We also looked at the political, technological threats to free speech on the internet- Net Neutrality and Chertoff's Mahnhattan style project to "protect" the internet from cyber-terrorists.

May 19, 2008- 9/11 Truth and Impeachment Show with State Senator Karen Johnson, Eric Larsen, Phil Burk, Barbara Ellis. In the first hour the focus will be on 9/11 Truth.

Tue., May 6, 2008: May 5, 2008- Iowa Terror Show with Mike Palacek

Mike Palacek is a former Omaha resident who served five jail and prison terms during the 1980s for protests at Offutt Air Force Base. He crossed the line at the base on many occasions along with others to say no to the United States military and its surge toward global dominance. His incarcerations included the county jails in Omaha, Papillion, Lincoln and Council Bluffs and also included the federal prisons in Chicago, Terre Haute and El Paso.

A former seminarian for the Omaha archdiocese, Palecek once asked for sanctuary in the Cathedral rather than attend a sentencing hearing for an Offutt protest, in order to attempt to convince the Omaha Catholic Church to denounce the Strategic Air Command. The bishop denied Palecek's request. Even though the Cathedral was surrounded by FBI agents, Palecek was able to slip past them. He and his family then went underground for two weeks, pursued by the Omaha FBI office. He ended up giving himself up at a press conference in front of The Chancery, the offices of then Omaha archbishop Daniel Sheehan. Palecek then served six months in the Pottawattamie County Jail.

Palecek later went on to work for small-town newspapers in Nebraska, Minnesota and Iowa.

In 1997 he left newspaper work to concentrate on writing novels. His works are based in the Midwest and feature individuals fighting against the general conservatism they find in their towns. A native of Norfolk, Nebraska, Palecek now lives with his family in Sheldon, Iowa.

He was the Iowa Democratic Party nominee for the U.S. House of Representatives, Fifth District, 2000 election and received 67,500 votes on anti-military, pro-immigration, anti-prison platform.

His novels include: Terror Nation, The American Dream, The Last Liberal Outlaw, Looking for Bigfoot, The Truth, Twins,Killing George Bush, Joe Coffee's Revolution. He also worked, in cooperation with William Strabala, to author a non-fiction work- Prophets Without Honor: A Requiem for Moral Behavior. He also co-edited Cost of Freedom- An Anthology of Anti-War Activism with Whitney Trettien & Michael Annis in 2007.

He just finished his 2008 Book Tour, and also did The American Dream Book Tour in 2007. He is a tireless activist. His new book- "Iowa Terror" is a unique, political comedy, satire, anti-war - in George W. Bush’s America - telling the truth for once in America, that George W. Bush and Dick Cheney did 9/11 themselves in order to start a war and make money.

In the first hour we discussed our activism and backgrounds. Mike shared his experience as an activist, newspaper publisher, as well as investigative reporter. In that role he visited Lenord Peltier in prison and interviewed the FBI agent who was also responsible for putting (Palacek) behind bars years previously. Mike also described his experience as a Democratic candidate and we spoke about the Democratic Party's horrific treatment of grassroots, principled candidates (and Cynthia McKinney). We also spoke out the Impeachment Movement. Mike also described his book tours and how he organized them via the internet.

In the second hour, Mike described in greater detail the idea and story behind Iowa Terror- the main character, an architectural student, and Hispanic, named Jesus, who could tell it was controlled demolition the day it happened. Mike does live in a small conservative Republican town in Iowa and he fully vents the issues he cares about (in a humorous way) in his novels.

We also spoke about the 9/11 Truth Movement and the various groups around the country and their ability to raise issues and work together, as well as the varied ability of people to recognize and use their talents, abilities on behalf of the movement, or to affect the direction that the country is headed in. We did recognize that the movement continues to grow, as does the opposition to us, and the threat to the Internet, as well.

April 2008

Tue., April 29, 2008: April 28, 2008 Dr. Mary's Monkey and the Media Show with in the first hourt- Edward T. Haslam and and in the second hour Melissa Cornick-Horyn.

Edward T. Haslam authored Dr. Mary's Monkey-
How the Unsolved Murder of a Doctor, a Secret Laboratory in New Orleans and Cancer-Causing Monkey Viruses are Linked to Lee Harvey Oswald, the JFK Assassination and Emerging Global Epidemics
. This is a remarkable book of an odyssey lasting many decades, by a native of New Orleans. In some way's a murder mystery, looking at a major cover-up by the government and the media, his book has received almost zero press, despite the fact that he brings to light a major witness to the assassination of JFK (Lee Harvey Oswald's ex-lover) who worked with Oswald, Ferrie and Mary Sherman in a secret laboratory developing cancer causing viruses, to be used as bio-weapons.

Ed Haslam, the author of Dr. Mary’s Monkey, was born in Kansas where his family had lived for several generations. His grand-parents were the school-teachers and country-doctors of the prairie. Shortly after his birth in 1951, his father (who had just returned from Harvard and the U.S. Navy) accepted a position teaching at Tulane Medical School in New Orleans. During the next 35 years that Ed Haslam lived in New Orleans, he personally heard and saw things that involved the investigation into the Kennedy Assassination, the murder of one of his father colleagues, and claims of biological weapons to be used for political purposes. Haslam’s 1969 comment: “If there is a bizarre global epidemic involving cancer and a monkey virus thirty years from now, at least we’ll know where is came from” states his concerns clearly.

Haslam’s education was that of a well-placed New Orleans male. He attended Jesuit High School in the late-1960s. The background event of these years was Jim Garrison’s investigation into the JFK assassination. Haslam had teachers, classmates and friends whose family members were involved in the case in one way or another. This experience gave him an “insider perspective” of these events.

His website- www.themonkeyvirus.com has links to the interviews with Judyth Vary Baker, Oswald's lover, and a key witness in the book to detail precisely what was going on in the secret laboratory, as well as Oswald's role in the murder of JFK.

Ed lays out the story he has been working on for many deacdes beginning with the development of the polio vaccine and its contamination with cancer causing monkey viruses. He looks at the role played by the President of the American Cancer Society, the top medical researchers of the day, the incentive to come up with a cure for cancer causing viruses and the development of a secret laboratory with a five million dollar piece of equipment- a linear accelerator which probably explains the bizarre death of Dr. Mary Sherman to some degree, although the grisley details of the state of her corpse was covered up by the authorities at the time of her death.

Ironically the key witness that helped Ed to complete his tale was introduced to him by 60 Minutes who never spent so much money or time on a story and then failed to air it.

Beginning in the second hour, Ed urges Melissa to pass on his story to someone who will get it out.

Melissa Cornick-Horyn, in her career as a network news television producer, has received numerous awards for her groundbreaking original investigative reports, including the prestigious 2006 Edward R. Murrow Award and Mongerson Prize for Ethics in Investigative Reporting. (One of her award winning stories looked at "Cruelty to Owners" and the unethical seizure of animals under the guise of "saving them.")

Melissa has focused on untold stories that highlight human and civil rights issues. Although her career spans CBS, NBC and ABC, 60 Minutes, Dateline, 20/20, Primetime and Walter Cronkite’s CBS Reports, Cornick has worked much like an independent producer; from generating fresh concepts, to gumshoe investigating, to shooting, to crafting and editing. Her objective is to give a voice to the voiceless while highlighting the tenets of ethics of journalism.

She was the first national news journalist to investigate the wrongful conviction of one third of the adult black population of Tulia, Texas, a story which will be made into a feature film starring Halle Berry next year. The report called, “Town on Trial”, was credited with showcasing the issue so that ultimately, prisoners were exonerated from continuing to serve up to 60 year prison sentences. However, network leaders were influenced by a letter writing campaign by white townspeople who convinced the network to not air further updates about the prisoners’ release.

Currently, she is involved in multi-media strategies for balanced journalism across multiple new media platforms worldwide, including online and locative mediums. She lectures and mentors young people of every background on the importance of cultural pride and education. She believes in responsible citizen journalism from a variety of points of view.

Melissa and I will both be attending a Media Conference at the end of the month in Sunnyvale, California entitled- NewsTools2008.org- A Concept/Design mashup for journalists, technologists and entrepeneurs. In preparation for the conference, we were given the assignment of interviewing one another, we had such a fruitful conversation that I invited Melissa to continue the conversation on the radio show. We will be exploring the theme- "Media Reform, Revolution, or Renaissance?" to examine the history of the media and it's current state of evolution and where, in principal, it should be based upon the Constitutional tenets of the First Amendment.

In our dialogue Melissa made some interesting points. Her stories are generated by what she perceives to be injustices so hard felt that they can physically affect people who have lost the right to tell their stories. Investigative pieces which require a lot of work, resources, exposing large crimes which affect large numbers of people are increasingly frowned upon and discouraged by the major networks.

Genuine journalism should be as inexpensive as possible and comes from grassroots initiatives, generally the victims trying to share their experience. Often victims do not know or understand the law or their rights. It is very important to encourage and enable citizen journalism. While it is harder and harder to break stories into the corporate press, it is possible for stories to come out in the local press, or the internet and be amplified to the point where they cannot be ignored.

Melissa detailed her experience with the networks and how it became harder and harder to get stories out and the rise as she sees it of "new media" which shares her purpose. One subject the networks are loathe to touch is that of voting rights being denied, election fraud which we discussed in the first quarter of the show. Other areas include major financial debacles, wars and the propaganda used to sell them to the public.

People forgot what it was or means to be a citizen, in the aftermath of World War II, they fell into being "consumers," the debt trap and abdicated their civic obligations to their communities and countries as watchdogs, and defenders of people and planet. Melissa is determined to help citizen-journalists and help develop the next wave of journalism.

Unfortunately, my internet connection/power abruptly was cut off 54 minutes into the second hour- Melissa closed on the topic of weather control (an issue that I have covered on this show before).

Next- May 5th, 2008 Iowa Terror Show with Mike Palacek Iowa Terror is Mike's latest book, a unique, political comedy, satire, anti-war - in George W. Bush’s America - telling the truth for once in America, that George W. Bush and Dick Cheney did 9/11 themselves in order to start a war and make money.

Mike Palecek was a peace prisoner, having served time in county jails and federal prisons for civil disobedience at Offutt Air Force Base during the 1980s. During the 1990s he was a reporter for small-town newspapers in Nebraska, Iowa, Minnesota. The small newspaper Ruth and Mike owned in southeast Minnesota was named the Newspaper of the Year for 1994 by the Minnesota Newspaper Association. In 2000 he was the Iowa Democratic Party nominee for the U.S. House of Representatives, Fifth District, receiving 67,500 votes (29%). Mr. Palecek Lives in Sheldon, Iowa with wife, Ruth, and two children. Works at group home for disabled adults.

Mon., April 28, 2008: Playlists: M3U | RAM (Individual MP3s: Hr1 Hr2 )

Tue., April 22, 2008: April 21, 2008 - Women, Empowerment, Labor Show with Almudena Carracedo, Robert Bahar in the first hour, and Almudena Carracedo, Robert Bahar and Jo Ann Lo together in the second hour.

Almudena Carracedo and Robert Bahar produced the award winning documentary film Made in L.A.. Jo Ann Lo was in the film and the lead organizer in the long campaign against "Forever 21."

"Made in L.A. follows the remarkable story of three Latina immigrants working in Los Angeles garment sweatshops as they embark on a three-year odyssey to win basic labor protections from a mega-trendy clothing retailer. In intimate verite style, Made in L.A. reveals the impact of the struggle on each woman’s life as they are gradually transformed by the experience. Compelling, humorous, deeply human, Made in L.A. is a story about immigration, the power of unity, and the courage it takes to find your voice."

Made in L.A. has been shown on PBS and has received recognition nationally and internationally. It is a powerful tool to raise awareness and encourage people to stand up for themselves and their rights.

The film may be complete, but the story never really ends. The most personal is often the most universal, and what the characters in the film and Almudena and Robert experienced in their project is deeply personal and very political. In the struggle for justice, people must always choose between their personal lives and the collective efforts in many struggles, on many levels.

There are multiple love stories behind this film. Almudena and Robert met, fell in love, and gave birth to this film. Within the stories of the three women is the story of a mother who left her children in order to support them and her family. One of the most heart-rending parts of the film is the mother’s concerns for her children, who seek to visit her but do not make it to L.A. The first question I asked after I saw the film was whether the mom ever was able to reunite with her children. In responding to this question, Almudena told us about a very teary, moved audience that witnessed the world premiere of the film in Washington, DC -- which also brought together the mother with her eldest son for the first time in over a decade. The film is a story of love and solidarity between workers and their families and between workers and other workers, across time, for the struggle of immigrants in sweatshops is not a new one, and continues to this day in countries throughout the world.

Jo Ann Lo is now a Co-Director of Enlace, a membership organization comprised of worker centers, unions and organizing groups in the U.S. and in Mexico engaged in base-building through organizing campaigns for economic and social justice. They seek to build the base of low wage workers to bring balance to the struggle between the rich and working poor.

Here is a statement from Almudena posted at the Made in L.A. website:

    Sometimes, when you start a project, you can't imagine the journey that awaits you.

    When I started this film, more than five years ago, my goal was only to create a short documentary that portrayed the conditions of Latina immigrants at Los Angeles factories. But, in the five years the film took to complete, it slowly, unexpectedly, became an intimate portrait of an increasingly universal experience in today's globalized society: the struggle of recent immigrants to get a foothold, to learn their rights and to assert their voice in our society.

    The project started when I read a newspaper story about sweatshops in Los Angeles. It talked about the deplorable conditions faced by immigrants working in some downtown garment factories: long hours, sub-minimum wage pay (or no pay), unsafe or unsanitary conditions, rats, roaches. I had hears of such conditions in other parts of the world, but I was shocked that they were also happening in one of the richest countries on Earth. I had already made a short documentary and so I set out to make a little film that would expose these issues and that would take about five months to complete. Or so I thought.

    I approached Los Angeles’ Garment Worker Center, then newly opened, and started spending time there, sometimes filming, often just talking with workers. They were about to launch a campaign against a clothing retailer: a boycott and a lawsuit that would attempt to hold a retailer – Forever 21, which sells trendy clothes at cheap prices – accountable for the conditions where their clothes are made. The energy of those early days was electrifying and I filmed everything that I could. As I started to get to know the workers, I was struck by their need to tell their personal stories. Stories of why they came to this country, of why they were doing garment work, of their hopes and fears for their children. They were surprised, and proud, that I wanted to listen.

    A very raw and rare intimacy came out in these moments and is captured in my early footage. Speaking in Spanish, my native language, being a woman, and working almost completely alone gradually inspired trust and allowed me to enter their lives. In order to portray this, I shot the film in an unobtrusive, intimate verité style. I also desired to capture the lyrical beauty and the details of this colorful, diverse Los Angeles that few outsiders experience.

    The five months that I had planned to devote to the project passed quickly and yet I felt that I might only be at the beginning. As the film began to grow, I sought out collaborators and met my producing partner, Robert Bahar. Through our invaluable collaboration, we began to reshape the film from a little documentary on sweatshops to a feature story focusing on the lives of three of the amazing women I encountered at the center: María Pineda, Maura Colorado and Guadalupe “Lupe” Hernandez. I filmed them at home, at the noisy protests with their children, at meetings at the Garment Worker Center, virtually everywhere they’d allow me to follow them. I was so dedicated that Lupe used to tease me: Little camera, one day you’ll leave me alone!

    Early in the filming, the Garment Worker Center launched a national tour to draw attention to their boycott campaign and lawsuit. I followed Lupe to New York, and it was the first time either of us had experienced the Big Apple. While there, Lupe visited the Lower East Side Tenement, which preserves the cramped home-based factories of early 20th century immigrant garment workers, and the Museum of Immigration at Ellis Island, through which millions of immigrants, for centuries, came to the United States. Those two visits are captured in the film and were deeply moving for both of us. Lupe saw pictures of the immigrants who came to New York in the early 20th Century. She saw how they lived, how hard they worked, and how they struggled to assert their rights. It’s just like today! was her immediate, gut reaction. That moment was an epiphany. She and I suddenly understood that the experience of Latino immigrants today resembles, in so many ways, the experiences of generations of immigrants who have come before them, from so many other places, in other times and through other ports of entry. The same struggle, the same hopes and dreams for a better life, for themselves and their children.

    If Made in L.A. were to accomplish anything, I would hope that it would provide a deeply human window into this immigrants’ struggle, which is repeated around the world regardless of the country of origin or destiny. Wouldn’t you leave your children, no matter the danger, no matter the pain, in order to send back enough money to feed them, hoping to give them a better life? Wouldn’t you work day and night, no matter the physical and emotional drain, if you had four children to raise and you had no other options? And, wouldn’t you overcome your fears and stand up one day to demand your rights in the workplace if you were constantly humiliated, underpaid, even spat at? What would you do – or not do – in order to survive?

    But what we did not anticipate is that their campaign would take three long years and the story would take another turn. Struggles cause people to change and, as the campaign dragged on, we were amazed to observe each woman’s growing sense of self-confidence and self-worth, their agency and empowerment. It then became clear to us that this was the real story and that their struggle against Forever 21 mattered not just for its own sake, but because it served as a catalyst for each of their individual stories. The story of María taking control and deciding to leave her husband. The story of Maura learning to cope with her fears and struggling to reunite with her children. The story of Lupe, who grew up feeling ugly and insignificant, becoming an organizer and one day reflecting on her path from atop Victoria’s Peak overlooking Hong Kong. Made in L.A. is a story about the decision to stand up, to say I exist. And I have rights.

    I am humbled and honored to have been allowed to capture this on film. Like María, Maura and Lupe, at the end of a long journey, we all got something that we had never expected.

    – Director/Producer/Cinematographer Almudena Carracedo

Robert Bahar is also a creator of http://www.doculink.org/, a grassroots organization and network for documentary filmmakers. He works as a producer and line producer on documentaries and works on the International Documentary Association's board of directors.

In the first hour we discuss the film and the issues it raises, but are soon challenged by a very anti-illegal immigrant caller. The anger he directs at immigrant workers is one reason the film was made, so that people are able to see them as "people" and not as some sub-human species deserving neither rights nor human dignity.

Jo Ann Lo gives more insight into the campaign, which was well chronicled in the film, and not just part of a larger campaign imposed upon those workers. We discuss how fear and ignorance are what organizers work to dispell, to enable people to understand and exercise basic human rights.

April 28, 2008 - Dr. Mary's Monkey and the Media Show with Edward T. Haslam and Melissa Cornick-Horyn.

Edward T. Haslam authored Dr. Mary's Monkey-
How the Unsolved Murder of a Doctor, a Secret Laboratory in New Orleans and Cancer-Causing Monkey Viruses are Linked to Lee Harvey Oswald, the JFK Assassination and Emerging Global Epidemics
. This is a remarkable book of an odyssey lasting many decades, by a native of New Orleans, in some way's a murder mystery, looking at a major cover-up by the government and the media, his book has received almost zero press, despite the fact that he brings to light a major witness to the assassination of JFK (Lee Harvey Oswald's ex-lover) who worked with Oswald, Ferrie and Mary Sherman in a secret laboratory developing cancer causing viruses, to be used as bio-weapons.

Ed Haslam, the author of Dr. Mary’s Monkey, was born in Kansas where his family had lived for several generations. His grand-parents were the school-teachers and country-doctors of the prairie. Shortly after his birth in 1951, his father (who had just returned from Harvard and the U.S. Navy) accepted a position teaching at Tulane Medical School in New Orleans.

Haslam’s education was that of a well-placed New Orleans male. He attended Jesuit High School in the late-1960s. The background event of these years was Jim Garrison’s investigation into the JFK assassination. Haslam had teachers, classmates and friends whose family members were involved in the case in one way or another. This experience gave him an “insider perspective” of these events.

As the U.S. flag-bearer for Jesuit’s U.S. Marine Corps JROTC unit, he marched in many Mardi Gras parades and developed an interest in the “parade beat” music of this unusual city – an interest he was to pursue. After graduating from the demanding agenda of Jesuit High School, he studied Art History at Tulane University and further developed his interest in music and writing.

For most of the 1970s he worked with the legendary piano-player Professor Longhair, considered by many to the one of the Founding Fathers of Rock-and-Roll for his contributions to the style in the 1940s. In 1975, ex-Beatle Paul McCartney visited New Orleans to honor Professor Longhair and wrote the song “Rock Show” to commemorate his visit to Longhair’s concert which Haslam produced.

When Longhair died in 1980, Haslam got out of the music business to pursue a career in advertising. There he was able to use his creative, musical, art and writing skills as a Creative Director. His radio campaigns for Tabasco Pepper Sauce and his work for The Treasures of the Vatican art exhibit at the World’s Fair in New Orleans recall this period. It was during this time that he stumbled upon hard evidence connecting people involved in the JFK assassination investigation to the medical community in New Orleans. But the time was not right to speak out.

In the 1980s Haslam’s advertising career took him to Detroit where he managed advertising campaigns for the Chrysler Corporation – and where he made presentations to then-Chairman Lee Iacocca. In his word’s, “I went from Professor Longhair to Lee Iacocca in 8 years.”

In his final days in Detroit, as the AIDS epidemic fixed itself upon the media landscape, Haslam started questioning what he had seen and heard in New Orleans. He began work on a research project known as Mary, Ferrie & the Monkey Virus: The Story of an Underground Medical Laboratory. The book has expanded into the current version, which is in its third printing.

Tue., April 15, 2008: April 14, 2008 9/11 Film Makers Show - First Hour Samira Goetschel, Second Hour Paul Krik

Samira Goetschel is the director of Our Own Private Bin Laden, her first full length documentary, made over a three-year time span. It won the award for Best Foreign Documentary & Best Film of the Festival (non-European category) at the 2006, The European Independent Film Festival Paris, France and The Audience Award at the 2006, International Documentary Festival Seoul, South Korea.

Samira Goetschel was born in Iran and fled the country with her family after her father was executed by the government of Ayatollah Khomeini. She spent her formative years in the United States. An alumnus of New York University film school, Goetschel's graduating film Clown De La Vie was the Best Short Film winner at the 1992 New York State Film Festival. She earned a Masters of Arts degree at Columbia University, and followed her passion for filmmaking with the short film ¿ about the Holocaust Museum in Washington DC.

Samira interviews an extraordinary array of people in her film including:

    Saad Al-Fagih
    Founder and the President of the Movement for Islamic Reform in Arabia

    Milton Bearden
    Former CIA Chief of the Soviet/East European Division, the CIA Station Chief in Pakistan during the Reagan Administration

    Benazir Bhutto
    Former Prime Minster of Pakistan

    Jack Blum
    Former Special Counsel to the United States Senate Foreign Relations Subcommittee on Terrorism, Narcotics and International Operations

    Zbigniew Brzezinski
    President Carter's National Security Advisor

    Noam Chomsky
    American linguist & political activist

    Paul Fitzgerald and Elizabeth Gould
    American journalists and authors of "The Voice" and "Afghanistan, the End of Illusion"

Samira details how she was able to obtain the interviews, and catch some of her subjects off guard. She looks at the psychology behind Americans denial and lack of responsibility at our own complicity in the political situation. She shares her insights on the current situation with Iran and her next project which looks at the evolving situation in regards to nuclear weapons.

Paul Krik wrote, produced, directed & edited ABLE DANGER, his first feature film. In describing his film he wrote:

    "...Documentaries are invaluable at exposing the truth, but they tend to reach the audience that is already listening. To reach a wider audience the message needs to be sugar coated. More people are reached by a gripping story and stylized filmmaking with beautiful and talented actors. Which is what I've undertaken to achieve. But this story is grounded in truth. The places are real. Vox Pop is a real cafe owned by a real man named Sander Hicks who publishes and sells books that the mainstream media won't touch. He is a level headed, rational and passionate real life Don Quixote still researching detail by irrepressible detail the truth of 911, election fraud, and everything else we should be infuriated about. As the sign above his door reads, 'Coffee, Books, Democracy.' This film is the fictional story of 'what if a femme fatale came into Vox Pop cafe with undeniable proof that 911 was an inside job?' It is a tribute to the people who fight the inevitable demise of American democracy.

    Able Danger is a very real but little known private intelligence program that destroyed 2.5 terrabytes of data detailing the financial support network of Al Qaeda six months before 9/11."

Paul Krik spent a year on his bicycle touring the United States coast to coast from San Francisco to New Orleans in the year between earning his BA in Philosophy at Oberlin College and his MA at the University of Illlinois. He moved to Hamburg, wrote screenplays and worked in television, and then back to the US, to Los Angeles to make movies. In LA he quickly gave up marketing himself as writer and learned filmmaking at the School of Hard Knocks -- TV Commercial Production. He produced national TV commercials for a few years while building his 'Commercial Director's Reel'. He changed the title of the spec reel from 'Director' to 'Editor' and immediately took a job at TBWA Chiat/Day in San Francisco running their editorial department. He's been cutting national TV spots for more than 10 years now. Currently he lives with his German wife and ABLE DANGER co-producer, Katharina Lang, in New York -- where ABLE DANGER was shot. He is on staff at Jump Editorial (www.nycjump.com) in NOHO, New York City, where he edited the film as well.

Paul Krik's film is a riveting, fast paced, dramatic, action packed, beautifully produced artistic masterpiece. It weaves fact with fiction, reality and the surreal, the truth with half truths. There are obvious lies, white lies, black lies, innocent lies, deliberate lies lacing the dialogue, obscuring the truth, blurring the truth, protecting people, endangering people, tricking people, a labyrinth of manipulation, as if each person were a pawn in a great game, not knowing who is calling the moves, or how many players are competing. Throw in the sex, seduction, passions, intelligence operatives, cops, investigators, victims, bribery, money, and a plot moving so fast that the main character probably can’t figure out his own emotions between the competing fear, grief, terror, pain, pleasure, relief, uncertainty of an ever changing landscape of challenges.

When I finished watching it, my immediate reaction was the urge to see it again- to catch the details I had missed and to ponder and grok it more completely. It works and hopefully will reach a wider audience than the "documentary in church basement crowds." (Link to my review of the film).

Paul shares his hopes to get attention for the film and distribution at the major upcoming festivals.

He also shares his own personal story of how he began his own journey down the rabbit hole at the original Vox Pop in Brooklyn where he was a local supporter of the enterprise and gained a great deal of personal respect for Sander Hicks.

What really triggered his leap into producing the film was after the second Presidential election was stolen in 2006.

He hopes that some of the stuff that the film hints at, people will look more deeply into, and discover for themselves the underlying reality hidden by the smoke and mirrors of the corporate media.

April 21, 2008 Women, Empowerment, Labor Show with Almudena Carracedo and Robert Bahar, producers of the Documentary Film Made In L.A.

"Made in L.A. follows the remarkable story of three Latina immigrants working in Los Angeles garment sweatshops as they embark on a three-year odyssey to win basic labor protections from a mega-trendy clothing retailer. In intimate verite style, Made in L.A. reveals the impact of the struggle on each woman’s life as they are gradually transformed by the experience. Compelling, humorous, deeply human, Made in L.A. is a story about immigration, the power of unity, and the courage it takes to find your voice."

Almudena and Robert spent many years on the film, which evolved from a short ten minute organizing tool into a major documentary, transcending the original scope of the project and touching many lives. The film has been shown and earned awards internationally and has a universal message. Very eloquently, the women through their own experience and words realize that they are part of a much larger struggle that has a long history and continues today, well beyond the borders of the United States.

Mored details will be posted on the Questioning War- Organizing Resistance Blog.

Tue., April 8, 2008: April 7, 2008 - Debt Crisis/Solutions Show In the first hour- Danny Schechter. in the second hour- Ellen Brown and Richard C. Cook.

Danny Schechter MediaChannel founder and executive editor, Danny Schechter the "News Dissector" is also a founder and Vice President/Executive Producer of Globalvision, Inc., an award-winning media company formed in 1987.

Danny Schechter has been a broadcast and print journalist and is an internationally recognized speaker and writer on media issues. His work has been honored with Emmy awards, the IRIS award, the George Polk Award, the Major Armstrong Award, and honors from the National Association of Black Journalists. Mr. Schechter was the news director and principal newscaster for WBCN-FM, an on-air reporter for WGBH, and a news program producer and investigative reporter at CNN and ABC. He is the author of several books, the most recent of which is "Embedded: Weapons of Mass Deception" (Prometheus) which was the inspiration for the documentary: WMD- Weapons of Mass Deception.

His most recent documentary is In Debt We Trust which explores the relationship between Congress and the credit complex and how it is having an enormously negative impact on the country's financial health. Since the film was made, the situation has worsened and Danny has been following the David and Goliath struggle between the predators and their victims who are organizing and protesting.

Ellen Brown developed her research skills as an attorney practicing civil litigation in Los Angeles. In The Web of Debt- The Shocking Truth About Our Money System And How We Can Break Free , her latest book, she turns those skills to an analysis of the Federal Reserve and "the money trust." She shows how this private cartel has usurped the power to create money from the people themselves, and how we the people can get it back.

Brown developed an interest in the developing world and its problems while living abroad for eleven years in Kenya, Honduras, Guatemala and Nicaragua. She returned to practicing law when she was asked to join the legal team of a popular Tijuana healer with an innovative cancer therapy, who was targeted by the chemotherapy industry in the 1990s. That experience produced her book Forbidden Medicine, which traces the suppression of natural health treatments to the same corrupting influences that have captured the money system. her recent articles include: April Fools: The Fox to Guard the Banking Henhouse and Another Way Around the Credit Crisis: Minnesota Bill Would Authorize State Banks to "Monetize" Productivity.

Richard Cook is a former federal government analyst who was one of the key figures in the investigation of the space shuttle Challenger disaster.

In 1985, he went to work for NASA as the lead resource analyst for the space shuttle solid rocket boosters, external tank, and Centaur upper stage. Cook’s first assignment led to his writing a memo on engineers’ concerns that flaws with the solid rocket booster O-ring seals could cause the shuttle to blow up. In 1986, after the Challenger disaster, he disrupted a NASA cover-up when he provided his memo, along with other documents on the hazards of the O-rings, to the New York Times. His disclosures paved the way for revelations by engineers from Morton Thiokol, Inc., about how they opposed the launch of Challenger the night before lift-off.

Called to testify before the Presidential Commission at an internationally televised public hearing, Cook stood his ground when his experience and competence were challenged. He continued to contribute to the investigation during interviews with Commission staff and the NASA Office of Inspector General and in meetings with Senator Ernest Hollings, who was trying to raise issues before the Senate on whether there had been White House pressure to launch Challenger.

In addition to extensive interviews with the media after the disaster, Cook published articles in the Washington Post, Washington Monthly, Space and Security News, and the Houston Post; gave a press conference with the Institute of Space and Security Studies, where he said that the Presidential Commission had been created to cover-up the role of the White House in the launch decision; and wrote a report which he submitted to the U.S. Justice Department with a request for a new investigation. In 1991, he was the recipient of the Cavallo Foundation Award for Moral Courage in Business and Government, sharing the award with Roger Boisjoly of Morton Thiokol.

Before joining NASA, Cook worked as an analyst for the U.S. Civil Service Commission, where he received extensive training in federal government operations. He then worked for the Food and Drug Administration and next served in the Jimmy Carter White House under Esther Peterson, special assistant to the president for consumer affairs. He also taught history at the Field School, a private high school in Washington, D.C.

Cook left NASA to become an analyst with the U.S. Treasury Department in 1986. There he developed and taught training courses on policy analysis and led project teams on financial policy and organizational restructuring. He authored Challenger Revealed- An Insider’s Account of How the Reagan Administration Caused the Greatest Tragedy of the Space Age in 2006. He retired from the federal government in January 2007 and works today as a writer, lecturer, and consultant. His website is richardccook.com.

Cook graduated with honors from the College of William and Mary, where he was elected to Phi Beta Kappa. He resides in College Park, Maryland.

One of his areas of interest has been the monetary system and he has written a series of articles about the current financial crisis including- Financial Meltdown: U.S. Treasury Regulatory Reform Proposals: Hapless, Helpless, Hopeless, Is an International Financial Conspiracy Driving World Events?, and An Emergency Program of Monetary Reform for the United States.

We will be looking at the systemic, as well as the more recent flagrantly criminal aspects of the deteriorating financial system and possible solutions. For those wishing to become more involved, there is a conference coming up this month-

    unMoney Convergence A Conference on Money, Liberation and Systems Change

      We answered many questions from callers on the basics of our money system, and looking at the larger economic forces seeking global control, and various solutions including local currencies, state currencies, nationalizing the banks, rethinking money, the possibility of a basic guaranteed inclonme, although there wasn't enough time to go into all these areas in great depth.

      Next Show April 14, 2008 - 9/11 Film Makers Show with Samira Goetschel and Paul Krik

      Samira Goetschel is the director of Our Own Private Bin Laden, an investigative documentary which draws parallels between the Cold War and the War on Terror. It examines the shady alliances and dealings of the CIA and the American government in Afghanistan in the 1980s leading to the "War on Terror." The film looks at how Osama Bin Laden has been constructed as a symbol and a tool, in order to raise tension and inspire violence.

      Samira Goetschel was born and raised in Iran, but fled the country when her father was murdered during the Islamic Revolution in 1979. She is a graduate of the NYU Film School, but resides and works in Canada.

      Paul Krik wrote, produced, directed & edited ABLE DANGER, his first feature film. (I just got a review copy in the mail today- so haven't had a chance to see it, yet, but here is how Paul describes it-

        Tue., April 1, 2008: March 31, 2008 9/11 Truth Show with David Ray Griffin in the first hour and Janette MacKinlay in the second hour

        David Ray Griffin is professor of philosophy of religion and theology, emeritus, at Claremont School of Theology and Claremont Graduate University in Claremont, California, where he remains a co-director of the Center for Process Studies. His 30 books include The New Pearl Harbor: Disturbing Questions about the Bush Administration and 9/11 (2004), The 9/11 Commission Report: Omissions and Distortions (2005), The American Empire and the Commonwealth of God: A Political, Economic, Religious Statement (2006 with John B. Cobb, Richard A. Falk, and Catherine Keller), Christian Faith and the Truth Behind 9/11: A Call to Reflection and Action (2006), and 9/11 and American Empire- Intellectuals Speak Out (2006, with Peter Dale Scott). Debunking 9/11 Debunking (2007).

        We discussed his latest book 9/11 Contradictions: An Open Letter to Congress and the Press. There is an effort to get the book into the hands of Congress (At least the Democrats and the more reasonable, rational Republicans. We need $5000 to cover the costs of the books and have raised $3000 so far. If you would like to contribute to the effort, you can contribute via the Northern California 9/11 Truth Alliance and specify it is for DRG's 9/11 Contradictions. He is one of the clearest voices challenging the official narrative of 9/11 and its defenders within the media.

        David Ray Griffin shared a few stories/ major contradictions from his book which were not very well known- How Long Did George Bush Remain in the Classroom? He pointed out the bogus, false accounts put out by the White House, or encouraged by the White House reconstructing the event on the first anniversary. He spoke about Where Did Authorities Find Atta's Treasure Trove of Information?. He shared the fact that the official account of the damning evidenced morphed dramatically in the first few weeks of the telling of the story, as well as the identities of the highjackers, until the government arbitrarily gave up on changing the names and identities and stuck with the 19 that they maintained from a certain point forward- regardless of conflicting info- including complaints from the live, innocent "alleged hijackers" who objected to be internationally condemned for a crime that they did not commit.

        He also addressed a question regarding the financial situation on the day prior to 9/11, the missing 2.3 Trillion in the Pentagon budget, so conveniently forgotten on 9/11 when the Pentagon was hit, precisely in the spot where auditors were trying to chase down that missing money, far from the command center. He also addressed Were there Explosions in WTC 7? by telling the story of Guiliani's friend, Michael Hess, who was trapped on the eigth floor with Housing Authority worker, Barry Jennings. NIST changed Hess and Jennings' narrative dramatically, and the time that they were trapped, to fit substantiate the Nist Report.

        David Ray Griffin has given some outstanding talks on the subject of 9/11 to diverse audiences, many of which have been filmed and shown on television and in theaters including 9/11 and the American Empire: How Should Religious People Respond?, 9/11 and Nationalistic Faith. 9/11: Let's Get Empirical, 9/11 & American Empire: Intellectuals Speak Out, 9/11 The Myth and the Reality (Produced by Ken Jenkins and distributed by 911TV.org).

        Janette MacKinlay is a visual artist, and a survivor of the World Trade Center attacks. On September 11th, she watched the drama unfold from her apartment across the street from the World Trade Center. Jim, a sculptor who shared the apartment, settled in to observe what was happening, thinking that the towers would burn "all day." When they started to come down, he warned Janette and they quickly hurried out their door as the debris shattered their windows and filled their apartment with dust and debris. Janette wrote a book about her experiences entitled Fortunate: A Personal Diary of 9/11 illustrated with photographs including the artwork, and ikebana flower arrangements she created, as part of her own efforts to heal. Exhibitions of her artwork, included Deception Dollars.

        By cosmic synchronicity, the Deception Dollar artist emailed me her name and phone number on the very day that I met Janette, in person, in San Francisco where members of the 9/11 Commission were speaking before the Commonwealth Club. I traded her a David Ray Griffin book- The New Pearl Harbor for a copy of her book, and that was the beginning of our friendship and collaboration. Janette joined the Northern California 9/11 Truth Alliance and became a vital, active member, treasurer, host, organizer, speaker, as well as a liason between the West Coast and New York City, when she decided to return to her refurbished apartment when she discovered it was available to rent.

        Janette shared her insights, as a survivor and gave some excellent advice such as "Turn off your TV." It was the Commissioners who avoided all serious questions that convinced her that a massive cover-up was taking place. She feels that 9/11 was designed to traumatize the country and the world and that the images of it will continue to retraumatize people. She spoke of her own personal transformation from a patriotic citizen, ready to join the army, to an activist demanding accountablity. She spoke of the New York City Ballot Initiative and her desire to help. People can go to New ork, help collect signatures to get it on the ballot, download the petition and start gathering signatures in New York City, if they are there already. People can also donate money, and books, for educational outreach.

        We spoke about The Shell Game, the concerted effort to get it on the New York Times Bestseller list during 9/11 Truth Week, between April 16th and April 22nd to help the author reach a larger national audience. We also spoke of the power of films, music, art, culture to reach people when the news avenues are being blocked.

        Next Week's Show- April 7th, 2008 - Debt Crisis & Solutions Show with Danny Schecter, Ellen Brown and Richard Cook.

        Danny Schechter, the News Dissector, media critic, film maker has produced an excellent film called In Debt We Trust and educating people about one of the great untold stories of our time, our current financial debacle and the criminal looting and fraud that is currently taking place.

        Ellen Brown is the author of The Web of Debt- The Shocking Truth About Our Money System and How We can Break Free which addresses the systemic flaws of our debt-based system and how we can change it.

        Richard Cook writes extensively on economic issues at his website- www.richardccook.com including the need for Monetary Reform and the desirability of a Guaranteed Basic Income.

Tue., March 25, 2008: March 24, 2008 Abundance and Project Earth Show with Adam Trombly.

Adam Trombly Director of Project Earth for the Institute for Advanced Studies at Aspen (now also in Maui, Hawaii) has proven to be one of the most influential and unorthodox scientists of his generation. He is an internationally acknowledged expert in the fields of Physics, Atmospheric Dynamics, Geophysics, Rotating and Resonating Electromagnetic Systems, and Environmental Global Modeling. Taking the advice of his friend and mentor, R. Buckminster Fuller, Adam has maintained a "synergistic, global view" within a multi-disciplinary scientific background. From this perspective, Adam offers unique insights into the changes humankind has effected on our environment, and the adjustments our future requires of us now.

Today Adam continues to pursue the work of Project Earth in spite of the fact that in his view the destabilization of Planet Earth has reached critical, even nearly irreversible proportions.

His website- http://www.projectearth.com/ was conceived of with the clear understanding that we are either conscious or unconscious participants in our existence. We do not exist in isolation. We are not separate from the totality of existence. The dynamic of PROJECT EARTH has always been based on the healing of the distorted concept of personal and societal isolation through the reintegration of the human species. We reintegrate with one another when we communicate. Then the warning signals can pass throughout humanity.

This Show was a continuation of last week's show with Adam. A transcript of last week's show is posted at www.communitycurrency.org/trombly.html. This show also expands upon ideas touched on in the March 3, 2008 - New Energy and Abundance Paradigm Show with Wade Frazier.

In the first hour- Adam looks at what has happened in the scientific field, the Union of Concerned Scientists have bemoaned the Bush Administration for putting policy before science, for subverting scientific research and information to serve their political agenda. While good science continues to be done, he notes that the technologies that would really benefit people and planet continue to be suppressed.

We look at the growth of the military/industrial complex since World War II, and the shift that occurred in America, when by a fluke, the Americans realized that there were technologies far superior to their own that they suddenly had to contend with.

We look at whether they have deliberately caused problems or just profited from disasters, which allow corporations to leap into areas and gain control over resources..

Adam mentions the new joint weather modification project which involves a large number of governments in the Northern Hemisphere and brought down the temperatures a degree or so this winter. We discuss whether those in power are acting out of fear, and whether they are altering their own agenda in the face of unexpected obstacles that they have recently had to face.

In the Second Hour

We look at the situation in Iraq, the drugging of soldiers, as well as the drugging of the American people, to control their thought processes and behaviors.

A caller mentioned a horrific 3.8 billion dollar Tar Sands Project being launched by British Petroleum. Adam pointed out the total folly of it and policies which need to urgently be reversed and plugged the new book by Steve Alten- The Shell Game (Steve was also a guest on the show in January).

The real obstacle, as always, is communicating the critical information about truths, realities, solutions, that exist and could be implemented, if we can wake up and activate the American people, wake them from their trance and get them to exercise their power and get a government to serve, rather than oppress them.

Next Week’s March 31, 2008- 9/11 Truth Show will be with David Ray Griffin and Janette MacKinlay.

,David Ray Griffin is the author of many excellent 9/11 Truth books, we will be discussing his latest book- 9/11 Contradictions in the first hour. HeDavid Ray Griffin has been a professor of philosophy of religion and theology at the Claremont School of Theology in California for over 30 years. He is co-director of the Center for Process Studies there and the author or editor of over 30 books.

In the second hour our guest will be Janette MacKinlay, a visual artist living across from the World Trade Center who witnessed and survived the South Tower's destruction, which blew out the windows of her apartment. Traumatized by the event, she found expression in art and writing, publishing the book Fortunate, a Personal Diary of 9/11. She has been a moving force in the 9/11 Truth movement.

Tue., March 18, 2008: March 17, 2008 New Energy and Project Earth Show with Adam Trombly

Adam Trombly Director of Project Earth for the Institute for Advanced Studies at Aspen (now also in Maui, Hawaii) has proven to be one of the most influential and unorthodox scientists of his generation. He is an internationally acknowledged expert in the fields of Physics, Atmospheric Dynamics, Geophysics, Rotating and Resonating Electromagnetic Systems, and Environmental Global Modeling. Taking the advice of his friend and mentor, R. Buckminster Fuller, Adam has maintained a "synergistic, global view" within a multi-disciplinary scientific background. From this perspective, Adam offers unique insights into the changes humankind has effected on our environment, and the adjustments our future requires of us now.

In 1980 Adam and colleague Joseph Kahn designed and applied for patents for the Closed Path Homopolar Generator, a potentially revolutionary design for super efficient generation of electrical power. In June of 1982, International Letters of Patent were published by the International Patent Cooperation Treaty Organization. (Patent Publication Number WO82/02126)

In 1983 Adam began to dedicate his efforts to Project Earth. The late R Buckminster Fuller is quoted as saying, "Project Earth is a human design experiment. It will be incumbent on human beings throughout the Earth to become a living network, to demonstrate the power of working synergistically with their environment to insure a future worth living in."

In 1984 Adam was awarded the RJ Reynolds III Endowment for his efforts with Project Earth. Copies of his Closed Path Homopolar Generator Patent had circulated throughout the world. One scientist, Paramahamsa Tewari, who was then Head of Quality Control for the Tarapore Atomic Power Station in Trombay, India, received permission to carry out experiments with the design. In 1986, Tewari published results of experiments carried out with a crude facsimile of the machine described in the patent. In the American Industrial Journal, Magnets, Tewari wrote, 'The test results have shown an efficiency of the machine above 250%." It was the first time in human history that claims of greater than 100% output had been independently verified by a bona fide third party using the description of the art provided by a patent document.

Adam continued his research into new energy technologies with colleague David Farnsworth. In June, 1989, in New York City, Trombly and Farnsworth physically demonstrated a small solid state electrical transformer that measurably showed an efficiency of 54:1. Adam then walked down the street to the United Nations to give an address. The American people, in particular, have still not gotten the message that there is an entirely new and benign option to the current death spiral of humanity. Ignoring the opportunity that was presented on that day in 1989, the world still suffers under the tyranny of fossil fuels and a global power structure which seems bent on the eradication of all species.

In the first hour of the show, Adam shares the meassage he gave to the UN many years ago, that we have the technologies to live "in abundance," but these technologies are being withheld from our species.

He describes his early life, and the life of his father, who had a rather extraordinary experience in the US Airforce during World War II, and was recruited after he finished his studies at Purdue University for extremely high level secret projects which also brought him into contact with the CIA and the MK Ultra experiments. His father was a friend of Frank Olson, and both of them were given LSD by Sidney Gottlieb in an experiment. Frank was murdered and Adam's father refused to be quiet about his friend's death. Adam's father subsequently was given a biological agent which induced illness and death. Adam discovered his father's journals in an attic later and learned the extent of his secret work with the government.

Adam was greatly inspired by the work of Tesla, and encouraged by his mentor Buckminster Fuller. He does not believe in exposing problems without oferring solutions, and therefore he worked towards energy solutions. He has lost his laboratory equipment a couple of times and had his life threatened on more than one occasion.

In the second hour of the show, Adam mentions the use of extremely low frequency waves and other waves used to manipulate people's thoughts and emotions. He discusses HAARp and transmitters being set up in Australia, Indonesia, and three earlier ones in Russia.

A caller asked about the solar energy having a greater effect upon the Earth's climate than anything humans might do. Trombly responded that humans were exasparating an already unstable situation.

In closing, he stated that we have the capacity to heal the Earth, and the human situation, the challenge remains to break the trance induced by those who want to keep people ignorant, living in fear, and under their control.

Details on Next Week's Show will be posted at theQuestioning War- Organizing Resistance Blog.


Mon., March 17, 2008: Playlists: M3U | RAM (Individual MP3s: Hr1 Hr2 )

Tue., March 11, 2008: March 10, 2008 - 9/11 Truth Down Under Show with John Bursill in the first hour, and Glen Clancy and Glen Clancy in the second hour.

John Bursill is one of the principle organizers of Sydney Truth Action of Australia, which is organizing and hosting from March 14th to 16th, Oz 2008 Truth Now Tour, an International Conference, taking place in Sydney, Australia to critically examine the events of 9/11 and Australia’s participation in the War on Terror. Themed- "Did Australia go to war in Iraq and Afghanistan on a false pretext?" the event will focus on what really occurred on September 11th and what has been done in the name of September 11th by the Australian government. The conference will examine how the US and Australian governments have actively sponsored, or been complicit in the cover-up, of terrorism.

John Bursill lives in a small town outside of Sydney, and has worked for 21 years in engineering, including as a licensed aircraft maintenance engineer, (on Boeing 737, 747 and 767 series aircraft.) He has also served in the military, in the Australian Army(reserve) Infantry for 10 years, finishing up as acting Battalion Operations/Intelligence Sergeant. He has devoted much time to community service, music (his band is named Spindrift). He is almost forty, married with two young girls. He is a member of the Australian Green Party, the Returned Serviceman's League of Australia, the Australian Wilderness Society, Lions International, and Architects and Engineers for 9/11 Truth. He is passionately interested in 9/11 Truth and Justice. His hobby is motor cycles.

John describes the day's events. American 9/11 Truth activists coming for the conference are joining with Australian activists in 9/11 Truth Actions (Cosmos who began the monthly 11th day actions, and Ken and Hummux are with him now.) He also describes the circumstances in which he experienced 9/11 and the atitudes that Australians in general shared regarding the first reports of what happened. Later when he saw Loose Change- Second Edition, John tried to prove the thesis wrong, but couldn't after a six week period, he came to belief that "9/11 was an inside job," and his way of dealing with the information, was to simply help spread the word. Many people have come forward to help with the Sydney 9/11 Truth group and the upcoming Conference. Mr. Yukihisa Fujita, a member of Democratic Party of Japan, who challenged Bush’s request for assistance from the Japanese to supply the US military effort in Afghanistan, by raising questions about 9/11 and the “War on Terrorism” in the Japanese Parliament, and attended the 9/11 Truth event in the EU parliament will also be attending the conference. Another speaker who has been added is Mandouh Habib, one of the earlier victims of extraordinary rendition and torture at the hands of the US government.

Glen Clancy, from Victoria, Auatralia, created "Fool Me Twice" described as "A documentary about the Australian government's lies about the East Timor massacres, the cover-up of the Bali Bombings and subsequent anti-terror laws." The 25 year old, Clancy is Australia's Dylan Avery (of Loose Change fame). The work was originally created to be viewed online, but Clancy is working on improving the resolution for larger screen and theatrical viewing and will be premiered at the conference. He also has a double degree in arts and commerce, majoring in Japanese and Finance. He was extremely interested in politics from an early age until the Australian government committed to helping invade Iraq. Seeing Loose Change re-invigorated him and persuaded him that finally the criminals who had orchestrated the wars of the past century could finally be brought to justice. This lead him to the make Fool Me Twice. He is currently teaching English in Japan.

Glen wrote (at the Fool Me Twice Blog on December 4, 2008)

    To all,

    After discovering 911 was an inside job, through such movies as Loose Change, Terrorstorm and Zeitgeist, I decided to investigate the Bali bombings. The evidence was overwhelming. There had been a cover-up.

    As shocking as the truth may be, please keep an open mind while viewing this documentary. FOOL ME TWICE is 100% sourced. Please see reference list below. I tried to produce a documentary as true to the genre as possible, limiting opinion and simply documenting the facts.

    I believe that 911 Truth is one of the most important movements of our time and exposing the cover-up of the 2002 Bali bombings can help destroy the "911/War on terror/Al-CIAda" myth.

    Please help spread this information.

    Kind regards,

    Glen

    Glen was in Japan when he first saw Loose Change, and began doing his research, really in isolation, with little encouragement (in fact mainly discouragement) from friends. His film is a very worthy effort and a great consciousness raising tool for Australians, but also others in exposing the larger pattern of state sponsored terrorism. In a very plain, just the facts style, he presents extremely daming information that allows the viewer to make their own conclusions about the scale of deception on the part of the government and draw their own conclusions. The documentary was premiered in Austria and provoked lively discussions.

    Some points that the film draws attention to include:

    The Australian government's foreknowledge of the violence that took place in East Timor and the Indonesian government's hand in that violence, despite their public denials.

    The large scale of one of the explosions in Bali that could not be explained by the official story.

    The systemic destruction of evidence.

    The arrival of an international investigative team within 24 hours.

    The ousting of the reporter most critical of the investigation at the request of the American ambassador.

    How the bombing changed the Indonesian government's attitude towards cooperating with the US "War on Terrorism" policies.

    The strange behavior of the US government towards potential, identified, and imprisoned "terrorists" in connection with the Bali bombing.

    Next week's March 17, 2008- New Energy - Project Earth Show with Adam Trombly.

    Adam Trombly, Director of Project Earth for the Institute for Advanced Studies at Aspen (now also in Maui, Hawaii) has proven to be one of the most influential and unorthodox scientists of his generation. In 1980 Adam and colleague Joseph Kahn designed and applied for patents for the Closed Path Homopolar Generator, a potentially revolutionary design for super efficient generation of electrical power. In June of 1982, International Letters of Patent were published by the International Patent Cooperation Treaty Organization. (Patent Publication Number WO82/02126)

    In 1983 Adam began to dedicate his efforts to Project Earth. The late R Buckminster Fuller is quoted as saying, "Project Earth is a human design experiment. It will be incumbent on human beings throughout the Earth to become a living network, to demonstrate the power of working synergistically with their environment to insure a future worth living in."

    In 1984 Adam was awarded the RJ Reynolds III Endowment for his efforts with Project Earth. Copies of his Closed Path Homopolar Generator Patent had circulated throughout the world. One scientist, Paramahamsa Tewari, who was then Head of Quality Control for the Tarapore Atomic Power Station in Trombay, India, received permission to carry out experiments with the design. In 1986, Tewari published results of experiments carried out with a crude facsimile of the machine described in the patent. In the American Industrial Journal, Magnets, Tewari wrote, 'The test results have shown an efficiency of the machine above 250%." It was the first time in human history that claims of greater than 100% output had been independently verified by a bona fide third party using the description of the art provided by a patent document.

    Adam continued his research into new energy technologies with colleague David Farnsworth. In June, 1989, in New York City, Trombly and Farnsworth physically demonstrated a small solid state electrical transformer that measurably showed an efficiency of 54:1. Adam then walked down the street to the United Nations to give an address. From the point of view of one who witnessed this event firsthand, I can't believe the entire world didn't change as a result. One of the reasons I asked Adam if I could write this piece is because it is now ten* years later and the American people, in particular, have still not gotten the message that there is an entirely new and benign option to the current death spiral of humanity. As the result of ignoring the opportunity that was presented on that day in 1989, the world still suffers under the tyranny of fossil fuels and a global power structure which seems bent on the eradication of all species.

    Today Adam continues to pursue the work of Project Earth in spite of the fact that in his view the destabilization of Planet Earth has reached critical, even nearly irreversible proportions.

    "At this point I am recommending that people pray like they never have before for Divine or at least Benign Intervention. It is unlikely that the boys in Washington and other world capitals are going to implement any world healing policies unless the populations of the world rise up and unequivocally demand change. We don't have much time."

    Tue., March 4, 2008: March 3, 2008 - New Energy and Abudance Paradigm Show with Wade Frazier First Hour- Biographical background, Second Hour- Exploring the issues. Wade Frazier is a former alternative energy entrepreneur who was deeply involved in bringing alternative energy to the American marketplace in the 1980s. While the United States energy establishment was almost uniformly hostile to his organization’s efforts, when they began pursuing technology with free energy potential, they were offered a billion dollars to cease their efforts. When the billion-dollar offer was refused, their company was destroyed and their founder spent two years behind bars in California on fabricated charges. In the aftermath of those events, Wade then spent the next twelve years performing the research and analysis that became his web site, at www.ahealedplanet.net. He shared his experiences, explained how energy has always powered economies, and how free energy can transform the human journey from a scarcity-based paradigm to an abundance-based paradigm.

    Notes on what we discussed:

      How the world works: energy is its engine. Energy = life = economic activity - from hunter-gatherer to domestication, to industrialization, to today, energy has always been the engine of all ecosystems and hence, all economic systems. From richest to poorest nations, economic production divided by energy consumption is almost a constant. Ethiopia and Britain, or Zaire, Bangladesh and USA.

      Slavery appeared in early civilization and disappeared in early industrialization. Energy was the reason. The average American has 80 energy slaves today, and it is almost entirely responsible for our standard of living. Although exploiting the poor is a key ingredient in maintaining the West’s standard of living, there are no visible slaves however, so we tend to ignore the energy issue in our daily lives, although it makes it all possible. The average American lives better than the richest king of 200 years ago.

      New Energy and Free Energy very similar, and I use them interchangeably.

      FE energy technology exists today, but the powers that be prevent it from being publicly available. FE is orders of magnitude beyond those solutions, and can take the world economy into realms scarcely imaginable today. What if instead of 80 energy slaves, which only a small fraction of humanity enjoys today, everybody had 1,000 energy slaves, or 10,000, and their use harmed nobody, and was environmentally harmless? It can begin looking a lot like heaven on earth, and quickly.

      Wade was introduced to energy issue in the early 1970s. World’s best engine for powering an automobile invented by his first professional mentor. Came to him at a stop light. Should have taken a team of scientists and engineers twenty years to invent it. Senator called him at home. Make your funeral plans.

      In 1986, in Seattle, Wade and his partner began with world’s best heating system, and his partner was run out of Washington State and one of his employees died due to the suppression efforts, which radicalized him. His partner had a genius for industrializing processes and bringing innovative products the mass market. Unfortunately, the energy interests already “own” that market, and were not going to welcome somebody who could have saved 80% of the consumer’s heating costs. In the Pacific Northwest; they had more like 25% savings in mind.

      They went to Boston and had interesting experiences, FE idea, $10 million offer, etc. and then he tied into money and talent in Ventura, CA, my home town, where they moved to in June 1987. The effort began taking off in late 1987, and then they acquired technology that may have been able to produce free energy, and then they lowered the boom on Wade, his partner and the business.

      January 1988: armed raid; they stole their technical materials and seized their equipment. They were made a billion dollar offer, and when they refused it. His partner was arrested on a million dollar bail immediately after on fabricated charges. Awesome judicial corruption. Ventura County is home of the Rodney King beating verdict and regularly makes the top ten lists of most corrupt law enforcement jurisdictions in America, and that is saying something.

      After lowest moment of his journey, after having his face rubbed in how the system really works, he mortgaged his life to give his partner a slim chance in Kangaroo Court. The quixotic gesture worked, and his partner was freed. He still spent two years behind bars and was almost murdered in prison. His case set legal precedents all the way. Wade was radicalized, and while his former partner tried picking up the pieces and went back at it, and is still at it, Wade took a different path. Twelve years and 12,000 hours of research, writing and editing became his website.

      In 2003, Brian O’Leary asked him to help found the New Energy Movement. When Eugene Mallove was murdered (probably related to his FE efforts), that was the beginning of the end of their involvement (Brian has stated that that was when he decided that the U.S. was no longer safe for FE activists, and he moved to Ecuador).

      Gaining experience in the FE field can be hazardous to one’s health, however, and I seek to help prevent too many people from learning FE lessons the hard way like I did and the others like me. There are not yet any happy endings for anybody in this pursuit.

      Energy scarcity has always accompanied the human journey. Scarcity paradigm has been hard-wired into human consciousness over the past 10,000 years.

      Scarcity-based ideologies: nationalism, capitalism, organized religion, scientism, rationalism, materialism, and the more obvious racism, sexism, etc. They all appeal to the ego too, as the adherents are on the “winning team” or aspire to be. Shedding our scarcity-based indoctrination is not easy. He will always be working at it.

      A comprehensive perspective is needed to see the big picture. Bucky Fuller was one of the first comprehensivists. Wade discovered his work after hefinished my site in 2002. Fuller’s work should be recovered from its neglect. Economics is the dog, politics is the tail. All political actors have always been stooges of the economic interests. As Fuller stated, until the Industrial Revolution, 1-out of 1,000 lived to a ripe old age, and 1-in-100,000 was an economic success, is the reason for scarcity-hardwiring.

      A caller asked more about Fuller, whose work was suppressed to a great degree. Benjamin Fulford says that his grandfather was murdered and his fortune stolen when he tried to back Tesla.

      Political-economic dynamics are why we do not have FE, not a lack of technology.

      All paradigms are based on assumptions. Overturning the assumptions is how paradigms change (Einstein/Newton). Abundance paradigm, based on energy abundance, can eliminate the scarcity assumption that all of today’s ideologies operate from (economic, political, scientific, religious). Heaven on earth is feasible with FE, with an economically abundant, environmentally harmless, global civilization. No want, no disease, so strife. But time is short. Climate change, acidifying oceans, energy and resource wars, America quickly going fascist (Rome, Third Reich – in times of fear, politics shifts to right, as it becomes everybody for themselves). With FE, all of that can go away almost overnight.

      Myths of science. Greatest physicists were mystics, and did not subscribe to the rationalist-materialist paradigm that has dominated the West for centuries. Einstein, Tesla, Heisenberg, his mentor, etc, all mystics.

      There is no such thing as pure science; there are no “laws of physics,” only theories. Edison’s light bulb, Wright Brothers, Béchamp, Pasteur and germ theory, pleomorphic microbiology (Rife, Naessens, microscope and optical theory), cancer racket (worst in California), heart disease racket (bypass does not work), fluoridation, etc. Second law of Thermodynamics, Reich, Mallove. Scientific literacy is important, but scientific dogma is crippling.

      Less than 1% of the scientifically-trained can think past their textbooks, which is common in all disciplines. Planck’s quote, “a new scientific truth does not triumph by convincing its opponents and making them see the light, but rather because its opponents eventually die and a new generation grows up that is familiar with it.”

      Technology is very real. Sparky Sweet. Adam Trombly. Underground exotic technology show witnessed by Wade's friend who does not even believe in ETs.

      The most heartwarming movements he has seen still focus on enlarging the tiny slice of the scarce economic pie that the poor receive, instead of making that pie a hundred times larger, so nobody needs to fight for their slice. FE can do that. Most of what passes for economics today does not focus on production or consumption, but on the exchange aspect – AKA who own what. In a world of scarcity, that is the focus, in a world of abundance, the exchange aspect will become relatively meaningless.

      Can we make new energy thinkable?

      Next Show- March 10, 2008, 9/11 Truth Now- Down Under Show, with John Bursill and others. John is organizing the Oz 2008 Truth Now Tour - Sydney Conference March 14th - 16th. The theme is "Did Australia go to war in Iraq and Afghanistan on a false pretext?" With elected officials raising serious questions about the official 9/11 story in Japan, Europe, even the US Congress, it's time to help Australians re-examine their country's recent history and actions.

February 2008

Tue., February 26, 2008: February 25, 2008- Impeachment and Movement Building Show - in the first hour David Swanson and Cynthia Papermaster speaking about the Impeachment Movement, in the second hour Larry Pinkney on building movements.

David Swanson is the creator of www.impeachcheney.org/, the Washington Director of democrats.com/ and of www.impeachpac.org/. He is co-founder of the www.afterdowningstreet.org/ coalition, creator of www.meetwithcindy.org/, and a board member of Progressive Democrats of America, of the Backbone Campaign, and of Voters for Peace. He was the organizer in 2006 of Camp Democracy. He serves on the steering committee of the Charlottesville Center for Peace and Justice and on a working group of United for Peace and Justice.

He has worked as a newspaper reporter and as a communications director, with jobs including Press Secretary for Dennis Kucinich's 2004 presidential campaign, Media Coordinator for the International Labor Communications Association, and three years as Communications Coordinator for ACORN, the Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now. Swanson is a member of and has served on the Executive Council of the Washington Baltimore Newspaper Guild. He obtained a Master's degree in philosophy from the University of Virginia in 1997. His website is www.davidswanson.org/. In April and May 2007, Swanson consulted part-time for Kucinich for President 2008.

Cynthia Papermaster is a law librarian, peace activist, and mother living in Berkeley, California. She works with Code Pink and several impeachment groups. Most recently she organized two rallies in San Francisco on President's Day to Give Cheney the Pink Slip. A great video was posted on Indybay.org, as well as an articleA Presidents Day to Remember (with photos by Robert Livingston). She is also running for Congress on an Impeachment platform against Pete Stark in California's 13th District.

David and Cynthia shared the latest developments on the Impeachment front, and basically said “It is up to us” to force the issue on Congress and get them to do the right thing. Kucinich was challenged/delayed from introducing 50 articles of Impeachment against Bush on the day Bush delivered the State of the Union address, by a sudden challenge against his Congressional seat, which also forced him to drop from the Presidential race. The Vermont Senate passed a resolution demanding that their Senator support Impeachment. States are also working on resolutions to have Bush and Cheney arrested and indited for their crimes within their boundaries. Over 90 cities have passed Impeachment Resolutions. Many people are challenging their Congressman by running against them and forcing them to change their stance on impeachment. Everyone is encouraged to do what you can- sign the petitions, call your Congressman, write letters, organize rallies, pass resolutions, run for Congress- or organize or attend a Beach Impeach (the next one in San Francisco is on April 26th), whatever you can do- it all adds up and could help us reach the tipping point.

Larry Pinkney is a veteran of the Black Panther Party, the former Minister of Interior of the Republic of New Africa, a former political prisoner and the only American to have successfully self-authored his civil/political rights case to the United Nations under the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights. For more about Larry Pinkney see the book, Saying No to Power: Autobiography of a 20th Century Activist and Thinker by William Mandel [Introduction by Howard Zinn]. Larry wrote an excellent article entitled-

Barack Obama and the Euphoria of Madness recently on the Black Commentator website, he is on its editorial board.

He also wrote:

The Pimping of Black America: Why Much of the Corporate Media Supports Barack Obama (January 17, 2008)

Double Speak- Barack Obama and Continuing U.S. Hypocrisy (January 10, 2008) Why was he a political prisoner? The following excerpt from his FBI file, obtained under the Freedom of Information Act, speaks for itself:

    "Pinkney is potentially dangerous due to his demonstrated ability to unify black and white. His associates are Negro, White, and Chinese. Special attention is being given to neutralizing him. The areas of sex and drugs appear to be the most effective ones to utilize. His habits in these areas are unknown, but are being monitored with this objective. The FBI is working in conjunction with [blacked out, but a covering note to the U.S. Secret Service, San Francisco, accompanies this]."

Larry shattered the myth of Obama and revealed Obama’s loyalties and interests, which certainly do not serve the American people or the world. He also spoke very highly of Cynthia McKinney, her record and her potential to help build a real people’s movement and third parties in this country. He spoke of the need for coalition building, and most importantly raising consciousness and conscience. He is a very inspiring speaker.

As the curent regime grows more and more blatantly tyrannical and oppressive, resistance against it mounts. Power concedes nothing without a struggle, and generally tries to make the mildest and most cosmetic of reforms, if possible, in order to maintain control. How much systemic change can be acheived depends upon the depth and strength of the social movement. For an overview of how Social Movements work see- Strategy for the 9/11 Truth Movement

Next Show- March 3, 2008- New Energy and an Abundance Paradigm Show with Wade Frazier, a former alternative energy entrepreneur who was deeply involved in bringing alternative energy to the American marketplace in the 1980s.

February 18, 2008, President’s Day- Psychological Warfare Show- In the first hour with Brent Jessop in the second hour with Ken Jenkins.

Brent Jessop is the webmaster of http://www.knowledgedrivenrevolution.com/ According to Brent- The purpose of his website is quite simple: to spread knowledge.

    "I just present the knowledge that I have available as honestly as I can.

    Knowledge gives people the opportunity to think critically and that is the first step toward real freedom."

He earned his masters degree in Biological Engineering at the University of Guelph, Ontario, Canada. His research was on food industry applications of multivariate image analysis.

Brent explained in simple terms the work he did and what drew him to the subject of information and psychological warfare. He doesn’t like the word “awakening” as he feels it is a long process and that he was always questioning authority from a tender age.

The main subject of his website is psychological operations or information warfare.

He explained how the ruling elite was dependent upon the unquestioning belief of the “mass man” and their own need to trust someone else to be in the position of responsibility.

Our guest in the second hour is Ken Jenkins. His primary interest has been on personal growth and spirituality, he has taught psychological classes for about 15years, with one speciality being the Enneagram of personality drives. A video producer by profession, Ken is a pioneer in the 9/11 Truth movement, and has been a speaker at many 9/11 events, focusing on the psychological aspects of 9/11. He has produced dozens of 9/11 Truth DVDs, including ten with leading author, David Ray Griffin. His insights into psychology have helped people to empathize and communicate with people too frightened to accept the truth about 9/11 and the current situation. He also helps people to move out of "panic mode" into a more productive sense of "urgency" in their efforts to share their insights with the public and empower people to stand up to tyranny and control their own and our collective future.

Ken briefly touched upon where the special operation could have been botched – Building number 7 coming down so lat in the day, without being hit by a plane, and speculating that having the “highjacked planes aloft” for so long without any interceptors being launched could not have been part of the original plans- too many gaping holes in it. He stressed that by planting the official story when people were in the most traumatized, vulnerable state they were most apt to accept the official explanation however illogical or flawed and once imbedded a belief is very difficult to dislodge. He mentioned the film “What the Bleep do we know?” and the hopeful aspects of “quantum activism” that our work in the world can be greatly enhanced by our own inner work, as all is connected in some mysterious way. He also mentioned the importance of emotional intelligence in regard to evaluating our own and others belief systems or information (Epistomology- Etymology: Greek epistEmE knowledge, from epistanai to understand, know, from epi- + histanai to cause to stand —Date: circa 1856 : the study or a theory of the nature and grounds of knowledge especially with reference to its limits and validity). Fortunately emotional intelligence can be learned and can help us to evaluate where someone else who is trying to impart information is coming from.

Both guests encouraged wider shared leadership, responsibility, understanding, and the empowering aspects of truth.

Next Show- “Building Social Movements”- I have invited a few guests, but at the moment can confirm only one- Larry Pinkney. - a veteran of the Black Panther Party, the former Minister of Interior of the Republic of New Africa, a former political prisoner and the only American to have successfully self-authored his civil/political rights case to the United Nations under the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights. For more about Larry Pinkney see the book, Saying No to Power: Autobiography of a 20th Century Activist and Thinker by William Mandel [Introduction by Howard Zinn]. Larry wrote an excellent article entitled- Barack Obama and the Euphoria of Madness recently on the Black Commentator website, he is on its editorial board. More details on the upcoming show will be posted on the show’s blog- questioningwar-organizingresistance.blogspot.com.

February 11, 2008 - Weather Warfare Show with Jerry E. Smith.

Jerry E. Smith began his professional career as a writer, lecturer and editor back in 1969. His bibliography of published works includes scores of articles and reviews, over a dozen ghost-written books, and three non-fiction works. His newest book is "WEATHER WARFARE: The Military's Plan to Draft Mother Nature." It is a follow up to his 1998 best seller "HAARP: The Ultimate Weapon of the Conspiracy."

In the First Hour of the show, Jerry speaks about HAARP, weather modification,earthquakes, hurricanes, the shift from overt programs to covert programs when the Convention on Environmental Modification was passed by the UN. In the second hour, Jerry discusses the anomalies surrounding the behavior of Hurricane Katrina and who might have could have done something to cause Katrina to change direction twice. He also discusses other legislation, attempted legislation revealing some of the ongoing programs taking place, and the controversial subject of chemtrails and contrails, their purpose, effects, the threat that they pose. His book WEATHER WARFARE: The Military's Plan to Draft Mother Nature is scientific reporting at a layman's level. He presents evidence from military and scientific sources that intentional environmental modification (EnMod) is the 600-pound gorilla at the global warming debate that everyone is pretending isn't there. In the show he quotes and mentions some of the more interesting cases that his research has turned up.

His earlier book was about the "who" and "why" behind the HAARP program, Weather Warfare documents the reality of intentional EnMod, and the threat to health and security it poses.

The heart of WEATHER WARFARE is proof that EnMod is science fact and that we have neither the political nor legal infrastructure in place to deal with this technology. Addressed at length is the dismal failure of the 1978 United Nations EnMod Convention, which prohibits the use of environmental modification as a weapon of war. The unaddressed issue of ongoing intentional EnMod by various militaries, terrorists and civilians is a key factor skewing the evidence in the global warming/climate change debate and as such is of gravest importance. The politics of the 21st century, and possibly our survival as a species, will turn on how this debate plays out.

Despite the title, it is not just "The Military." It is about the whole environment: earth, air and sea; it is about a lot of players: academic, commercial and military; with a lot of objectives: financial, militaristic and political.

He looks at the history of "weather control" from the Rain Makers of the 1890s through the development of cloud seeding in the middle of the twentieth century, to today's "off the shelf" technologies of precipitation enhancement, hail suppression and fog dispersal. He looks at programs to manipulate hurricanes, such as Project Cirrus and Project Stormfury, and what evidence there is of being able to control hurricanes in the 21st Century.

It also covers Defense Secretary Cohen's claim that "Others ... can ... set off earthquakes, volcanoes remotely through the use of electromagnetic waves." Starting with Nicola Tesla's earthquake machine of the 1890s he traces the possibility of "earthquakes on demand" from the development of a "tsunami bomb" during World War II (as revealed by documents recently declassified by the New Zealand government), through Project Faultless which caused a massive earthquake in the Nevada desert after a high yield atom bomb was intentionally detonated on a fault line, to evidences of human initiation of several major quakes.

The US Air Force insists that it has no interest in "controlling the weather" yet HAARP represents the expenditure of hundreds of millions of dollars and a decade of research and construction in a program whose avowed purpose is to modify the atmosphere. What, if any, is the difference between "modifying the atmosphere" and "controlling the weather"?

WEATHER WARFARE also examines claims that chemicals are being deliberately injected into our atmosphere by high-flying planes that are criss-crossing our skies with "chemtrails." First I examine the environmental issues associated with jet aircraft condensation trails (contrails), which are indeed grave. Then he looks at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory (LLNL) and numerous other national and international panels of scientists which have extensively, and expensively, studied ways to mitigate global warming through schemes called "geo-engineering."

Edward Teller, father of the hydrogen bomb and Associate Director of LLNL, actually advocated putting up a "sunscreen" to save the Earth. He proposed injecting aluminum and barium dust particles high into the atmosphere to increase the amount of solar energy being reflected out into space as a way to offset the heating by greenhouse gases.

Many scientific boards and committees have looked into this proposal and found it technologically feasible, but recognized that the legal and environmental hurdles would be too high to overcome to implement such a project--if done openly, so some proposed doing it covertly.

Weather as a Force Multiplier: Owning the Weather in 2025 is a study designed to comply with a directive from the chief of staff of the Air Force to examine the concepts, capabilities, and technologies the United States will require to remain the dominant air and space force in the future. Presented on 17 June 1996, this report was produced in the Department of Defense school environment of academic freedom and in the interest of advancing concepts related to national defense. (Disclaimer) The views expressed in this report are those of the authors and do not reflect the official policy or position of the United States Air Force, Department of Defense, or the United States government. Next week February 18, 2008 -Psychological Warfare Show with Brent Jessop and Ken Jenkins. Brent Jessop is the webmaster of www.knowledgedrivenrevolution.com. The main subject of his website is psychological operations or information warfare.

Ken Jenkins primary interest has been on personal growth and spirituality, he has taught psychological classes for about 15 years, with one speciality being the Enneagram of personality drives. A video producer by profession, Ken is a pioneer in the 9/11 Truth movement, and has been a speaker at many 9/11 events, focusing on the psychological aspects of 9/11. He has produced dozens of 9/11 Truth DVDs, including ten with leading author, David Ray Griffin. His insights into psychology have helped people to empathize and communicate with people too frightened to accept the truth about 9/11 and the current situation. He also helps people to move out of "panic mode" into a more productive sense of "urgency" in their efforts to share their insights with the public and empower people to stand up to tyranny and control their own and our collective future.

January 28, 2008 - World Social Forum Show In the first hour with David Kubiak and in the second hour with Carol Bonvin. World Social Forum 2008 "Another World is Possible!" has been the theme of the World Social Forum for many years. While the first gathering in Brazil took place in January 2001, drawing thousands of people from hundreds of countries, united in opposition to the policies of the World Economic Forum, World Bank, IMF, WTO, militarism, over the years it has evolved, has been held in different places, including India, Africa and Venezuela. This year it is calling for a Global Day of Action! And people are organizing different events, actions, conferences all over the world.

David Kubiak, International Campaign advisor for 911Truth.org, and long time, anti-corporate-globalization activist, was one of the organizers of The Independent Media Strategy Summit The PURPOSE of the Summit was to gather-

    "media veterans, scholars, activists; whistleblowers to assess and marshal our most powerful messages to rectify history, awaken a critical mass, and effectively expose the accelerating corporate coup d'état."

    "to coordinate their most revealing messages, forge tactical alliances, innovate new distribution technologies, and mutually enhance each others' strongest work."

David reported a resounding success. The summit drew about three hundred people, that did work collaboratively, agreed upon goals, and are working to build an independent news network, drawing from the resources, talents, existing structures that share committment towards truth and serving life, humanity and planet.

David shared some of the highlights of the conference and the collaborative effort now in progress and Carol added a few more details and observations since she also was a participant. More can be found on the Summit website, and more will be posted, including the very moving presentations by the outstanding speakers, including Cynthia McKinney, currently campaigning to be the Presidential nominee of the Green Party. The Summit will also be amplified at the upcoming National Conference on Media Reform next June (6-8th in Minneapolis) which will probably draw thousands more media reform activists.

Carol Bonvin is Swiss-American and her interest in global social and economic policy stems from her travels and fascination with people, places and world affairs. For years she has been a global justice activist and belongs to Attac, a widespread civil society movement primarily in Europe. The main objective of Attac is to analyze aspects of free trade and neoliberalism and their large negative impact on basic human rights, to carry out public awareness campaigns and to develop and promote alternatives.

THE OTHER DAVOS Social Forum and Conference was held in Zurich, Switzerland on January 26th 2008.

Zurich, a center of high finance, is the gateway each year to the mountain resort of Davos where the World Economic Forum takes place. As is widely known, the World Social Forum was launched in 2001 as a counterweight to this very gathering of the economic and political world elite, who never have been given a mandate by the world citizens to take decisions with little to no scrutiny by those whom the decisions impact.

Carol Bonvin described in detail the social forum themed and entitled: “Aboard the “M.S Neoliberalism”: Pleasure Cruise or Piracy?

The neoliberal economic model is more and more like a cruise ship -- increasingly elitist and excessive, a façade of luxury and opulence, pretending the whole globe is its home, non-sustainable, ecologically damaging and dependent on labor and resource exploitation, but sold to everyone as wonderful, restorative and accessible to all.

She described the gist and highlights of the presentations by Susan George, Christian Felber, Rita Schiavi and Jean Ziegler, which included a demand to nationalize the Swiss banks, which are increasingly in crisis due to the mortgage debacle in the US, an international tax on currency transactions (the Tobin tax), a critique of the collaborative creative financial instruments which have robbed the many and threaten the world economy, and a call to support labor which is increasingly under attack, even in the prosperous nation of Switzerland, where the disparities in wealth are increasing.

Next week's, February 4, 2008 - Psychological Operations Show will feature in the first hour, Josh Switky and Ken Jenkins. Josh Switky was a professional sound engineer who became fascinated with propaganda, intelligence and counterintelligence that has been directed at the American people and designed by the CIA and the military.

Ken Jenkins has produced a large number of the early 9/11 Truth documentaries, and most of the David Ray Griffin videos. He helped to organize the San Francisco International Inquiry into 9/11 and publicly speaks about the psychological aspects of 9/11. He also helped found the Northern California 9/11 Truth Alliance (sf911truth.org) and 911TV.org, which sends 9/11 truth documentaries to be shown on community access television stations across the country.

January 21, 2008, Martin Luther King Jr.'s Birthday Stopping the Next 9/11 Show with Steve Alten author of The Shell Game.

Steve Alten is a best-selling author who has written a number of thrillers, including The Loch, The Meg Series, Goliath and Resurrection. A gifted storyteller, he has plunged into history, myth, religion, science, politics, and asked "What if?" creating enthralling tales which have captivated a large audience, including teenagers who have discovered the joy of reading through his books.

He created an innovative Adopt an Author program, claims to respond to all of his emails from readers, and even includes readers as characters in future novels. He's not your typical author (if there is such a thing), but does engage in genuine dialogue, and combines diverse personalities, ideas, facts, possibilities powerfully.

He wrote this message to his readers regarding his latest book, which will be released on January 22, 2008:

The SHELL GAME
    The events of September 11th, 2001...the invasion of Iraq...the threat of radical Islam...an impending showdown with Iran. What do these situations have in common? Oil. And the world is running out. The SHELL GAME is far more than a thriller, it is a MUST-READ cautionary tale that exposes the next “9/11 event” a deception that will lead to a retaliatory chemical weapons strike on Iran and the terrorist elements the regime supports. Though the novel is written as fiction, it is filled with all-too-real details provided by insiders in the oil industry, military, and Middle Eastern affairs that extrapolates real events from the past and present that will lead us down a path of self-destruction...unless we stop the insanity now!

    The story opens in 2007 when two CIA spooks meet with an American Colonel in military intelligence. The war is going badly, and President Bush, who steadfastly refuses to back down, remains unchallenged at home as Democrats and Republicans continue to toss verbal grenades – positioning themselves for the 2008 elections. Meanwhile, Iran’s pursuit of nuclear energy will yield enriched uranium within five years -- uranium that can be used to manufacture suitcase nukes.

    The United States’ military is too drained to invade Iran, and a preemptive strike is out of the question...unless a nuclear detonation were to occur on in American city -- the enriched uranium traced back to Iran. A U.S. reprisal would strike a death-blow against radical Islam, quell the insurgent violence in Iraq...and yield more oil. Yes, the cost is unthinkable – but if we sit back and do nothing then one day a dozen suitcase bombs could go off in a dozen American cities – bringing with it anarchy and the collapse of Western civilization.

    December 2011: Ashley “Ace” Futrell is an oil expert working for PetroConsultants, married to Kelli Doyle, a former National Security Advisor and one of the CIA spooks from the opening scene. When Kelli threatens to expose the plot, Ace finds his existence hurtling down a rabbit’s hole of deceit where the orchestrated lies of the powerful few could lead to the darkest days of human existence... and the death knell for billions.

In the first hour we discuss how he became interested in the subject of 9/11 and peak oil. We look at how fear is used to control people and a bit of history about false flag operations and the lies used to trick people into supporting wars.

In the second hour we continue to respond to questions and challenges to the idea of peak oil and possible alternative energy solutions. Steve also mentions that all the characters in the book are based on real people and encourages people to participate in a contest to be included as a character in his next novel. He also doesn't reveal names, but hints that some of his information has come from sources within the government, and certainly within the oil industry.

The Shell Game does have the potential to top the bestseller list and break both issues into the national arena, hopefully in time to stop the next "nuclear 9/11."

Next Show- January 28, 2008 - World Social Forum Show with David Kubiak, Carol Bonvin and others.

Another World is Possible! has been the theme of the World Social Forums, since the first one was held in Porto Alegre, Brazil in January 2001, bringing together activists from all over the world who challenged the World Economic Forum, World Bank, IMF, Militarism and a war economy which enthroned corporations at the expense of people and planet. Over the years the World Social Forum has grown and evolved. This year the World Social Forum 2008 will not take place in one centralized location, but will be a Global Call For Action with local events taking place in a multitude of places. Our guests will be organizers reporting back on The Other Davos, The Independent Media Strategy Summit, and other events challenging corporate rule.

Carol Bonvin is Swiss-American and her interest in global social and economic policy stems from her travels and fascination with people, places and world affairs. For years she has been a global justice activist and belongs to Attac, a widespread civil society movement primarily in Europe. The main objective of Attac is to analyze aspects of free trade and neoliberalism and their large negative impact on basic human rights, to carry out public awareness campaigns and to develop and promote alternatives.

As is widely known, the World Social Forum was launched in 2001 as a counterweight to this very gathering of the economic and political world elite, who never have been given a mandate by the world citizens to take decisions with little to no scrutiny by those whom the decisions impact.

In January 2001, ATTAC held its first edition of The Other Davos in Zurich and Noam Chomsky addressed us by video just before leaving for Porto Alegre. THE OTHER DAVOS is a public conference and has attracted well-known activist-speakers over the years including Tariq Ali, François Chenais, David Harvey, Lindsey German, Yash Tandon and others.

Since this year was part of the WSF Global Action Day, we made it a special edition and included an afternoon social forum. We gave it a special title as well: “Aboard the “M/S Neoliberalism”: Pleasure Cruise or Piracy? Why this choice?

The neoliberal economic model is more and more like a cruise ship -- increasingly elitist and excessive, a façade of luxury and opulence, pretending the whole globe is its home, non-sustainable, ecologically damaging and dependent on labor and resource exploitation, but sold to everyone as wonderful, restorative and accessible to all.

David Kubiak worked for most of the last 30 years in Kyoto, Japan where he taught mass media and memetics at Ritsumeikan University, ran a blues bar, served on the board of Kyoto's Japan Civil Liberties Union, and organized direct democracy movements. Since returning to the States in 2000, he has organized populist chautauquas and 9/11 teach-ins with Jim Hightower, Ronnie Dugger, Grannie D, David Korten and others. His Ellen Mariani article, "9/11 in Neverneverland," won Project Censored's 2005 Top Ten Award. David ran for State Senate as a Green "9/11 Truth Candidate" from Kennebunkport, Maine.

Publicizing Truths with Consequences- Independent Media Power Vs. the Corporate Coup seeks to bring together media veterans, scholars, activists & whistleblowers to assess and marshal our most powerful messages to rectify history, awaken a critical mass, and effectively expose the accelerating corporate coup d'état.

January 14, 2008 9/11 Truth Show with Sander Hicks

Sander Hicks is one of the most colorful media activists of his generation. He runs the Drench Kiss Media Corporation's retail dynamo, "Vox Pop." The place for "Books, Coffee, Democracy," Vox Pop is a vibrant, fair-trade, community-empowering, consciousness-raising space, on Cortelyou Road, in Flatbush, Brooklyn. In three years, Vox Pop has spawned new activist groups, redefined "community development", and published a muck-raking tabloid, The New York Megaphone.

In 1996, he founded Soft Skull Press, Inc. (acquired in 2007 by Winton & Shoemaker). In 2003, Hicks was star of "Horns and Halos" (HBO/Cinemax) the independent publishing documentary that recorded Hicks’s attempts to get unpopular truths out about G.W. Bush, through the biography Fortunate Son (Soft Skull, 1999). His own book, The Big Wedding (Vox Pop, 2005) broke new ground on the working-class intelligence assets and whistle-blowers who tried to stop 9/11 from happening. Hicks has reported for Alternet, GNN, Long Island Press, New York Press, and INN World Report Television (FSTV, Dish Network).

His website is http://www.sanderhicks.com/. He has worked on Wall Street, as a playwright for Playwrights Horizons and New Dramatists, and as a shift manager at Kinko’s. In 2006, he was elected to lead the Cortelyou Road Merchants Association, in Flatbush, Brooklyn. That same year he was a US Senate candidate from the Green Party.

He will be on tour this February, and speaking in detail about the strange death of 9/11 Truth Researcher Dr. Graham. He posted 9/11 Researcher Sander Hicks Files Complaint with DOJ which details his trip to Louisiana and Texas and the strange behavior of the FBI regarding Graham before and after his death.

Sander also spoke about how his understanding of 9/11 has deepened over the years, since he wrote The Big Wedding. He spoke about the FBI in broader terms about their use of assasination, intimidation to crush dissent historically. He also said that Graham was poisoned when he was just on the verge of publishing his book. Tha family is scared and will not allow it to be published, but as an investigative reporter, Hicks feels the manuscript- entitled The 9/11 Graham Report is evidence and can be posted on the internet, as such.

He could also use some help with his tour, so if you are on the West Coast and would like him to speak in your city or help out publicizing the tour, contact him.

The Next Show January 21, 2008 will be with Steve Alten, a best-selling author whose new book, The Shell Game promises to raise the national dialogue on 9/11, peak oil, and preventing a nuclear 9/11. The book will actually be released on January 22nd. His website links to 9/11 Truth, Oil/Peak Oil, and environmental/Climate Change websites.

The novel, itself, explores personal transformation, how one person can make a tremendous difference in the world, and certainly should spark the burning conversations on vital issues that could save lives, and the planet, as well.

January 8, 2008 - Impeachment Show. In the first hour withwith Phil Burk Elizabeth de la Vega. in the second hour with John Nirenberg and David Swanson.

Phil Burk founded ImpeachBush.tv in December of 2000, before the inauguration of George Bush. The efforts made by the Bush team to avoid counting votes in Florida led Phil to believe that George Bush might abuse his Presidential authority once in power.

His website provides information about the process and history of impeachment, and describes impeachable offenses committed by Bush. One focus of his group has been to help cities and states pass local impeachment resolutions. Phil helped draft the impeachment resolutions used by the California, New Mexico, Missouri and Washington state legislatures.

Phil is a businessman and American citizen who believes that the rule of law should apply at every level of society.

Phil gave an overview/update of the Impeachment Movement that is happening on the national level and encouraged people to keep pushing for local impeachment resolutions at the county, city, and state levels and to inform themselves of the basics about the Impeachment process, so that they can be more effective in their lobbying, and press efforts. He noted that it is the creative actions that are breaking through the mainstream press barriers (although perhaps because the press would like to paint us as 'fringe" rather than mainstream efforts representing the vast majority of Americans.

Elizabeth de la Vega is the author of "United States v. George W. Bush et al," in which she uses her 20 years of experience as a federal prosecutor to present a hypothetical grand jury presentation setting forth the pre-war intelligence fraud committed by Bush, Cheney, Rice, Rumsfeld and Powell. Since retiring in 2004 from her position of Assistant United States Attorney in San Jose, California, where she was a member of the Organized Crime Strike Force, and chief of the office for several years.

In her book, Elizabeth detailed the fraud /lies that the Administration used to launch the attack upon Iraq, and the parallels to the current saber rattling used against Iran, which makes impeachment all the more necessary and timely.

In the second hour, John Nirenberg has been walking from Boston to Washington DC to pressure Nancy Pelosi to move forward with impeachment. His website- www.marchinmyname.org reveals this about him:

    "I was born in the midst of the Nuremberg Trials. I grew up conscious of that place as both the beginning of the hate and violence that destroyed all of Europe, and the trials that confirmed a powerful moral sense of what is acceptable and unacceptable even in the depths of war.

    As a child I watched all the war movies and believed we Americans really were different and that we fought for a noble cause. I believed in the supremacy of freedom over fascism, I surely thought our glory was based on doing the right thing and our victory showed the power of real democracy.

    But even as a child I was puzzled about how the world could sink so low. How could a civilized country like Germany turn into a nightmare of fear, violence and wanton destruction? Watching the movies and seeing a nation turn on one scapegoat after another I asked myself, “when do you see the evil for what it is and resist it?” For me, I know the time is now. I am appalled that Americans are actually debating the usefulness of torture techniques and that the Government of the United States is systematically torturing people in the name of freedom and security. As I write this, knowing that President Bush and Vice President Cheney actively support these methods, my skin shudders with anger and fear. Anger because we have stooped so low. Fear because all of what we have cherished as a nation - indeed, all of the great things about the United States that we have shown the world - are being destroyed by the current administration. It isn’t just that this administration authorizes torture, that is reason enough for me to take this action, but Bush and Cheney have placed themselves above the law. And that is the first step of all dictators and tyrants.

    I am not an activist. The defense of the Constitution isn’t ideological. I march because it is essential to stand up to this shame. I march also because I am fortunate enough to do so. I march for everyone uncomfortable with movements, organizers and radicals, but who understand the dire straights we’re in. This is about saving our Constitution. This is about restoring the promise of America. This is about doing what I can as a citizen. This is about shaking the Congressional leadership out of their complacency so that they, too, see the urgency and the importance of their action to right a host of perilous wrongs perpetrated by Bush and Cheney.

    Finally, I need to walk because as a citizen it is all I can think to do that demonstrates how important this is to me. I can’t sit back any longer satisfied with my outrage. It isn’t enough. So I am doing this for me and, I hope, for you.

    A Little Bit More About the Project

    With a little help from my friends…

    This project developed rather spontaneously after one Bush/Cheney outrage too many finally moved me to literally walk my talk. My first job when I was discharged from the Air Force was teaching high school social studies including American History. It was during the Nixon era a year before he resigned. When he resigned I was overjoyed that it proved to the whole world our system of checks and balances and the very ideals I taught were alive and well.

    I moved on to study organizational systems and taught management at the collegiate level on three continents. I was fortunate enough to see the world and to confirm my suspicions that our democracy, as imperfect as it is, still works. I never dreamed that it would be hijacked and that my return to active citizenship would be in a time of another Constitutional crisis. I certainly didn’t think my return to active citizenship would be because the institutions I assumed would look after the Constitution would abandon it.

    I have decided to undertake this walk from historic Faneuil Hall in Boston to Nancy Pelosi’s office in Washington D.C. because I’ve written the letters, spoken with my Congressman, and been patient while the Democrats settled into their leadership role. I hoped they would do the right thing. But they haven’t. Impeachment is “off the table.”

    This effort is to put it back on the table."

John shared his own personal transformation story and details of his amazing march through winter along the path laid down by our country's founders. He should be an inspiration to any who have not yet taken to the streets, and urged people, who weren't quite ready to make such a huge committment to at least give Nancy Pelosi a call and urge her to put Impeachment on the table (Her phone number is: 202-225-0100). He also urged people to simnply raise the issue one on one with people they know or oeven people they don't know- as the public has a responsibility to educate one another, in light of the failure of the corporate media.

David Swanson is the creator of www.ImpeachCheney.org, the Washington Director of www.Democrats.com and of www.ImpeachPAC.org. He is co-founder of the www.AfterDowningStreet.org coalition, creator of www.MeetWithCindy.org, and a board member of Progressive Democrats of America, of the Backbone Campaign, and of Voters for Peace. He was the organizer in 2006 of Camp Democracy. He serves on the steering committee of the Charlottesville Center for Peace and Justice and on a working group of United for Peace and Justice.

He has worked as a newspaper reporter and as a communications director, with jobs including Press Secretary for Dennis Kucinich's 2004 presidential campaign, Media Coordinator for the International Labor Communications Association, and three years as Communications Coordinator for ACORN, the Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now. Swanson is a member of and has served on the Executive Council of the Washington Baltimore Newspaper Guild. He obtained a Master's degree in philosophy from the University of Virginia in 1997. His website is www.davidswanson.org. In April and May 2007, Swanson consulted part-time for Kucinich for President 2008.

Recently, he spoke in New Hampshire with "Lord of the Rings" star Viggo Mortensen, Maine Lawyers for Democracy leader John Kaminsky, Congressman Kucinich, and John Nichols.

David described the recent events in New Hampshire, and noted that more and more candidates are pushing for Impeachment, as part of their platform. He also said that kucinich would be a resolution introducing articles of impeachment against George W. Bush in January. He also said that there is a national campaign underway to phone/fax/email/pressure Congress to move forward on Impeachment on January 16th. (By the way, there will also be a national day of action against torture on January 11th. Congress is out of session right now and will reconvene on January 15th). The media has been a major obstacle preventing Impeachment, but due the pressure of a growing popular movement, we are winning over more members of Congress and forcing the issue into the press. There is hope, but it is up to us.

David urged people to sign Wexler's petition at wexlerwantshearings.com, call Congress, visit their offices, do actions, do civil disobedience, write op-eds, write letters to the newspapers, join protests, be creative and do whatever you can think of to raise the Impeachment issue and broadcast your support of Impeachment to the world.
