John Feal just received a call from Rep. Carolyn Maloney. H.R. 6594 is going to be introduced on the House Floor tomorrow morning. Please please please call your Representative, and tell them that you support this bill. I don't need to tell you how much they need this. Thank you for doing what you can.
Jack Ruby's assassination of accused JFK assassin Lee Oswald is ample evidence of a conspiracy. http://www.maebrussell.com/Disappearing%20Witnesses/Ruby%20Oswald.gif
Why would a strip club operator sacrifice his freedom and possibly his life to "spare Mrs Kennedy the trauma of a trial"? That makes no more sense than the collapse of Building Seven at near free fall speed due to fire.
We missed the opportunity to turn back from the road to fascism when JFK was murdered. Exposing the obvious discrepancies of the official story may have been a more effective strategy than even the Vietnam war protests. Long live 9/11 truth!
Forget Republican versus Democratic. That's a false dichotomy. Its the Democrats in Congress who are now trying to pass the fat cat welfare, taxpayer-funded bailout. Forget labels. Forget politics. Forget who should get credit for good ideas. Let's look at substance and do what's best for the country.
House Republicans are pushing a meaningful alternative to the Paulson bailout plan.
CNBC has the story:
In a letter to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, House Minority Leader John Boehner urged that the proposals be "given the consideration they deserve."
The proposals include:

Thanks to the Sept. 11 interview of Sarah Palin by Charles Gibson of ABC News, the Bush Doctrine has become part of the American vocabulary. Although it has been a fateful doctrine - it was used to justify the attack on Iraq - many Americans reported that they were as clueless about it as Gov. Palin.
So what is the Bush Doctrine? According to international law as generally understood since the creation of the United Nations, a pre-emptive attack is legal only if a country has certain knowledge that an attack on it is imminent - too imminent for the matter to be taken to the U.N. Security Council.
Pre-emptive war is different from preventive war, in which a country, fearing that another country may become strong enough to threaten it at some time in the future, attacks it to prevent this possibility. Preventive wars are illegal under international law.
Plenty of news items on "Lesley Hughes 9/11";
(You can comment on this story as well)

The Liberals have dumped a Winnipeg candidate who wrote about allegations that Israeli businesses had advance knowledge of the 9/11 attacks in New York.
Just hours after Stéphane Dion publicly sidestepped questions about the status of Lesley Hughes, the Liberal leader released a statement announcing that he had asked her to step down.
"The Liberal Party's commitment to tolerance and multiculturalism is paramount. I have reviewed the past comments of Lesley Hughes and it is clear they do not meet this standard," he said in the statement.
[Free-lance reporter and former New York Times contributor Paul Conant has always been a no-nonsense, straight-up journalist, not prone to wild panic-mongering. So this was rather a unusual post he made Friday morning at about 10:35 am - let's hope someone at the LA Times was just pulling a prank.]
'Red alert' story vanishes
The bailout talks have failed. Much of the GOP is in revolt. Wall Street biggies are horrified at not being able to stay in control.
So I go to the LA Times website about five minutes ago in order to see that paper's take on the crisis. The screen says that Pentagon security has been breached and that the nation is now on red alert. Then, the screen disappears and the bailout story shows up.
I can't retrieve the "red alert" story, so I don't know what's going on. Google turns up nothing relevant. I was just at the New York Times and Washington Post sites. They had nothing.
I just got my absentee Florida ballot, and I thought you might be interested in the list. I don't know if the names have been announced publicly, in Florida or elsewhere, but I do know that I have only heard of 5 out of the 13 of them, and that is only because I go to the US every summer. Here in Germany, I would only have heard of two. I'll have to google most of them. This shows how seriously our media take their job of informing the public.
Here is the list, and their party acronyms (all which I have not deciphered yet, either):
John McCain/Sarah Palin, REP
Barack Obama/Joe Biden DEM
Gloria La Riva/Eugene Puryear PS
Chuck Baldwin/Darrell Castle CPF
Gene Amondson/Leroy Pletten PRO
Bob Barr/Wayne A. Root LBT
Thomas Robert Stevens/Alden Link OBJ
James Harris/Alyson Kennedy SWP
Cynthia McKinney/Rosa Clemente GRE
Alan Keyes/Brian Rohrbough AIP
Ralph Naden/Matt Gonzalez ECO
Brian Moore/Stewart Alexander SPF
Charles Jay/John Wayne Smith BTP
There is also a (very small) space for a Write-in candidate.
I believe Cynthia McKinney is the only "truth" candidate, but as I said, I have to google most of them.

Hungry for Truth:
One Man's Struggle to Confront September 11, 2001

ISBN 978-0615222141 • paperback • $12.95
A personal journey into the world of activism for 9/11 Truth. Questioning the official story of the 9/11 attacks has many hazards, not least of which as a motivator to speaking up about "false flag" terror and the manipulation by governments of their populations to go to war. To a college professor of Religious Studies, seeing Islam portrayed as a religion of violence was spiritually and mentally degrading, not to mention socially destructive. This book discusses one person's awakening to the lies told to us about 9/11 and how they compelled him to activism and a hunger strike against John McCain as he campaigned for President. McCain wrote the Foreword to Popular Mechanics cover-up of 9/11. The author sat for 17 days outside the office of Senator John McCain waiting for an answer about 9/11 issues. He did get them, and the answers may foreshadow how "President McCain" will confront the requests for a new 9/11 investigation, conduct foreign policy, and his handling of the Middle East wars.
I was watching this debate that Lullaby Academy posted, and I kept hearing the idea that the Bush Administration, and those in it "would never", or could never possibly conceive of or participate in something like 9/11. The article this speech is based on is here. Our elected officials are not Gods. It is not blasphemy to question them when they do questionable things. It is our responsibility.
Bush Admin. officially acknowledges that 9/11 anthrax attack was perpetrated by a U.S. Government insider
The Scarlet A: Links between the Anthrax Attacks and 9/11
by Barbara Honegger
The author is a Senior Military Affairs Journalist, and former White House Policy Analyst and Special Assistant to the Assistant to the President in the first Reagan Administration. Ms. Honegger is the author of the 9/11 expose “The Pentagon Attack Papers” http://physics911.net/pdf/honegger.pdf and October Surprise (Tudor, 1989), the first book to reveal the true origins of the Iran side of the Iran/Contra scandal.
By insisting that Bruce Ivins, a biowarfare scientist then with the Army’s Ft. Detrick laboratory, was behind the anthrax attacks, the Bush Administration has officially acknowledged that those attacks were perpetrated by a U.S. Government insider -- and not by bin Laden or by Iraq.
CREDIT DEFAULT SWAPS - THE INSANE PROBLEM AND THE RADICAL BUT SANE SOLUTION
September 25, 2008
By Chuck Simpson
The paramount reason for today's cancerous credit crisis is seldom even hinted and never explained.
First, a simple definition. A credit default swap is a form of insurance. A variant of mortgage insurance required of many home purchasers. An insurance policy that requires a company with financial strength to step up to the plate and pay the mortgage if for some reason the home buyer defaults.
A credit default swap is similar: If default occurs, an insurance company pays the income stream of the mortgage.
With one extremely important difference: Payments are made to the owner of the policy, not to the financial institution that stands to suffer a loss.
Financial institutions are allowed, through total lack of regulation, to buy and sell credit default swaps, or insurance they will be paid in event of default, on financial instruments in which they have no financial interest.
A former senior advisor to the U.S. Treasury and highly-regarded economics professor, Nouriel Roubini, says that Washington’s bail outs are “socialism for the rich, the well connected and Wall Street; it is . . . a corrupt system where profits are privatized and losses are socialized.”
In fact, this is a quintessential characteristic of economies run by fascist regimes.
For example, historian Gaetano Salvemini argued in 1936 that fascism makes taxpayers responsible to private enterprise, because "the State pays for the blunders of private enterprise... Profit is private and individual. Loss is public and social" (page 416).

We Are Change confronts Joe Scarborough & Mika Brzezinski on the streets of New York City. In this episode Mr. Scarborough after mocking a WTC7 question takes Matt Lepacek's $500 camera phone, removes the cover, and drops it down into the elevator shaft. The video from the phone was later recovered. Here are both camera angles, John Paul Harkins and Lepacek's.
