Truth Emergency US Santa Cruz, California Jan. 25-27, 2008

Truth Emergency US

This Truth Emergency Movement held its first national strategy summit in Santa Cruz, California Jan. 25-27, 2008. Organizers gathered key media constituencies to devise coherent decentralized models for distribution of suppressed news, synergistic truth-telling, and collaborative strategies to disclose, legitimize and popularize deeper historical narratives on power and inequality in the US. In sum this truth movement is seeking to discover in this moment of Constitutional crisis, ecological peril and widening war, ways in which top investigative journalists, whistleblowers and independent media activists can transform the way Americans perceive and defend their world.

What Giuliani Should Do Once He Drops Out of the Race by Kristen Breitweiser January 25, 2008 Opednews

What Giuliani Should Do Once He Drops Out of the Race
by Kristen Breitweiser
http://www.opednews.com

First, let's lay out 5 reasons why nobody should/will vote for Giuliani:

1. His Deadly Judgment: Before 9/11, Giuliani is the person responsible for deciding to locate NYC's emergency command center in the World Trade Center complex along with a diesel fuel tank (against the advice of FDNY officials). The World Trade Center was a known al Qaeda target (the towers were struck in 1993 and al Qaeda publicly promised to return to finish the job). Why would anyone locate an emergency command center in such a dangerous, vulnerable place?

During the 9/11 attacks, because New York City's emergency command center was utterly paralyzed (since it was located in the World Trade Center that was being attacked), the city was unable to properly coordinate emergency response workers like the police and firemen. That inability to coordinate cost many uniformed and civilian lives.

How Faith Can Be Illuminating or Blinding

According to David Ray Griffin, "People of faith" are often accused of allowing their faith to override evidence. With regard to 9/11, the greatest obstacle to seeing the truth---that 9/11 was an inside job---is not the lack of evidence but what can be called "nationalist faith"---the belief that America is the "exceptional nation," whose leaders never deliberately do anything truly evil, at least to their own citizens.

Study: Bush, Other Officials Issued Hundreds of False Statements Before Iraq Invasion

DOUGLASS K. DANIEL

Jan 22, 2008 23:13 EST

A study by two nonprofit journalism organizations found that President Bush and top administration officials issued hundreds of false statements about the national security threat from Iraq in the two years following the 2001 terrorist attacks.

The study concluded that the statements "were part of an orchestrated campaign that effectively galvanized public opinion and, in the process, led the nation to war under decidedly false pretenses."

The study was posted Tuesday on the Web site of the Center for Public Integrity, which worked with the Fund for Independence in Journalism.

Martin Luther King Birthday March for TRUTH, Dallas

"A time comes when silence is betrayal"
"A lie cannot live."
"Almost always, the creative dedicated minority has made the world better."
"Every man must decide whether he will walk in the light of creative altruism or in the darkness of destructive selfishness."
"He who passively accepts evil is as much involved in it as he who helps to perpetrate it. He who accepts evil without protesting against it is really cooperating with it."
"Human salvation lies in the hands of the creatively maladjusted."
"I believe that unarmed truth and unconditional love will have the final word in reality. This is why right, temporarily defeated, is stronger than evil triumphant."
"Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere."
"Life's most persistent and urgent question is, 'What are you doing for others?"

Conspiracy! Fact and fiction are closer than we think

15 Jan 2008

Conspiracy theories which claim to shed more light on the 2001 twin towers
disaster in New York are often closer to official versions than first
thought - according to new research.

http://www.manchester.ac.uk/aboutus/news/display/index.htm?id=130015

http://www2.winchester.ac.uk/ccc/affiliates/peterknight.htm

Dr Peter Knight from The University of Manchester who conducted the first
academic study of 9/11 conspiracy theories says they are more popular today
than ever before.

He also lists all major existing conspiracy theories in his report
'Outrageous Conspiracy Theories: Popular and Official Responses to 9/11 in
Germany and the United States'.

The findings come as the "final cut" of Loose Change - the internet video
which has been the most influential source of 9/11 conspiracy theories - is
now having its first screenings at 9/11 events in the UK.

CIA Hid Other Tapes From 9/11 Commission By jimd3100 OpEdNews January 12, 2008

CIA Hid Other Tapes From 9/11 Commission

By jimd3100

We know now that the CIA kept from the 9/11 Commission tapes of al Qaeda suspects in violation of law. But why isn't mainstream media (MSM) reporting about other tapes U.S. Intelligence kept from the 9/11 Commission?

In today's 2-minute news sound bites it's easy to deceive. Anthrax is released in letters and you are to believe that it came from Iraq. Next thing you know, we have a war in Iraq to eliminate their none existent stockpiles of anthrax. An "al Qaeda" suicide tape is released and you are to believe it came from al Qaeda.

Since the most important 9/11 hijackers were ringleader Mohammed Atta and Ziad Zarrah, let's take a close look at the release of their "last will" tape and how it was reported. Clearly, the CIA kept other important 9/11 tapes from the 9/11 Commission and MSM helped with the cover-up.

‘Filipino Monkey’ may be behind radio threats, ship drivers say NAVY TIMES

Caught in a Fraud? Blame it on the ‘Filipino Monkey’ !

‘Filipino Monkey’ may be behind radio threats, ship drivers say

By Andrew Scutro and David Brown
Posted : Friday Jan 11, 2008 17:24:25 EST

The threatening radio transmission heard at the end of a video showing harassing maneuvers by Iranian patrol boats in the Strait of Hormuz may have come from a locally famous heckler known among ship drivers as the “Filipino Monkey.”

Since the Jan. 6 incident was announced to the public a day later, the U.S. Navy has said it’s unclear where the voice came from. In the videotape released by the Pentagon on Jan. 8, the screen goes black at the very end and the voice can be heard, distancing it from the scenes on the water.

“We don’t know for sure where they came from,” said Cmdr. Lydia Robertson, spokeswoman for 5th Fleet in Bahrain. “It could have been a shore station.”

Loose Change Call to Action for 2008

Happy New Year to everyone from Louder Than Words. As hard as it is to believe, 2007 has come and gone. Reprehensor at 911Blogger has written a comprehensive overview and assessment of the year's major events. With all of that behind us, a year of monumental potential is ahead, and its outcome lies entirely in our hands.

The movement has come a long way since its inception, but the ever-present question is: What next? What needs to be done to ensure that we see some accountability? The release of films such as “9/11 Press for Truth” and its companion “In Their Own Words”, and our own film “Loose Change Final Cut”, and books such as Steve Alten’s “The Shell Game”, it is becoming easier and easier to approach the uninitiated with the concept of 9/11 Truth.

Photobucket 911Blacklist.org

In the six years since the tragic events of September 11th, 2001, the mainstream media in America has largely been a mouthpiece of the Bush administration. All of the major networks including ABC, CBS, NBC, CNN, and others had until recently, been silently complicit in the cover-up of the events of that day, the un-Constitutional wars that would follow, and the steady erosion of our Constitutionally protected rights.
