FaxForTruth.com Launched, New 9/11 Activism Site Hopes for Weekly Fax-Bombs for 9/11 Truth

digg_url = 'http://digg.com/politics/New_9_11_Activism_Site_FaxForTruth_com_Launched_Today';

Please note: As a Canadian I am always trying to think up ideas I and my fellow non-Americans around the world can take part in. This idea was thought up before the Fax C-SPAN campaign was announced. It was merely a kick in the ass to get the website completed as soon as possible. This is why the initiative is being announced with only one more day to fax C-SPAN.

http://www.faxfortruth.com

FaxForTruth.com has been officially launched on a shoestring budget and with only a basic knowledge of web programming

This new site hopes to organize weekly fax-bombings of 9/11 truth to those in a position of power to influence a new 9/11 investigation.

In solidarity with weekoftruth.org, our first campaign is to fax C-SPAN encouraging them to cover the upcoming Symposium in Keane, NH. A sample letter can be found on the main page of the website, as well as a link to a website where you can send faxes for free over the internet.

New campaigns will be announced every Monday and we hope that people will sign up for our forums to propose candidates for future campaigns as well as vote on those proposed. We would like these campaigns to be organized as democratically as possible.

Future candidates will include:

General Petraeus to Head U.S. Central Command

Source: Reuters

Apr. 23 - With the resignation last month of Admiral William Fallon, President Bush is now free to replace him with someone more open to military engagement with Iran.

As CENTCOM is the headquarters for all operations in the Middle East, having it headed by someone who is hawkish towards Iran is of the utmost importance to the neocon warmongers who want nothing more than to attack Iran before leaving office next January.

Infowars: Three States Subjected To "Martial Law Sweeps"

Source: http://infowars.net/articles/april2008/180408impact.htm

Infowars is reporting a Martial Law Training Exercise has begun in three states. (see source, looks like last weekend. -rep.) "Operation Sudden Impact" as it is called is also being reported by ClearChannel owned Eyewitness News Memphis, though they have labelled it a "crime crackdown."

http://www.myeyewitnessnews.com/news/local/story.aspx?content_id=198dd5c1-dea5-41db-8661-80e7dd518a44

From Infowars:

Federal law enforcement agencies co-opted sheriffs offices as well state and local police forces in three states last weekend for a vast round up operation that one sheriff's deputy has described as "martial law training".

Given the military style name "Operation Sudden Impact", the initiative saw officers from six counties rounding up fugitives, conducting traffic checkpoints, climbing on boats on the Mississippi River and doing other "crime-abatement" programs all under the label of "anti-terrorism".


Nuclear Attack on D.C. Inevitable, Senate Committee Told

Source: http://www.washingtontimes.com/apps/pbcs.dll/article?AID=/20080416/METRO/556828862/1001

"The blast from the 10-kiloton bomb — similar to the bomb dropped over Hiroshima during World War II — would kill up to one in 10 tourists visiting the Washington Monument and send shards of glass flying the length of the National Mall, in a scenario that has become increasingly likely to occur in a major U.S. city in recent years, panel members told a Senate committee yesterday."

The Senate Committee on Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs was told yesterday that a nuclear attack on Washington D.C. was "inevitable" and would likely occur in the next twenty years.

"The scenarios we discuss today are very hard for us to contemplate, and so emotionally traumatic and unsettling that it is tempting to push them aside," said Sen. Joe Lieberman, Connecticut independent and committee chairman. "However, now is the time to have this difficult conversation, to ask the tough questions, and then to get answers as best we can and take preparatory and preventive action."

Pat Buchanan: Petraeus points to war with Iran

http://wnd.com/index.php?fa=PAGE.view&pageId=61277

"Is it fair to say that the Iranian-backed special groups in Iraq are responsible for the murder of hundreds of American soldiers and thousands of Iraqi soldiers and civilians?"
"It certainly is. ... That is correct," said Petraeus.
The following day, Petraeus told the House Armed Services Committee, "Unchecked, the 'special groups' pose the greatest long-term threat to the viability of a democratic Iraq."
Translation: The United States is now fighting the proxies of Iran for the future of Iraq. The general's testimony is forcing Bush's hand, for consider the question it logically raises.

It appears as though Paul Craig Roberts' prediction came true, though it has not been as widely trumpeted in the media as predicted.

Will we expose the truth about 9/11 and end the 9/11 wars before the next one breaks out?

Desperately needed: A 9/11 Truth PAC

What is the biggest problem facing the 9/11 Truth movement? Some may say a lack of enthusiasm, others may offer their own ideas. In my opinion, the biggest problem we face is a lack of credibility in the mainstream.

Everyone here derides the MSM, and for good reason. The mainstream media is the #1 obstacle to full blown, widespread 9/11 truth awareness everywhere throughout the United States. There is little doubt that there was a large degree of corporate involvement in the 9/11 conspiracy, and the corporate-owned mainstream media try their best to make sure the real story of 9/11 doesn't get out. Most of us know this.

So what's my point? It is a sad reality of life in North America today that unless something is in the mainstream, it lacks a certain credibility needed to attract a critical mass of followers. Look at Alex Jones for a good example. While I don't agree with everything he has stood for over the years, he has repeatedly stood on the side of the truth while the mainstream media were busy calling him and those who believed him kooks. The reason being that the truth is not enough these days. The truth has to go mainstream.

Petitions for 9/11 Truth

The founding fathers thought the right of petition so important they included it in the first amendment of the Constitution. Unfortunately most activists in the U.S. forget this most basic right when fighting for their cause. Many see the protests of the 60s with hundreds of thousands in the streets or encircling the Pentagon and think that the petition no longer serves a use in the modern era of television and youtube. However these activists either forget or are ignorant of the fact that the civil rights and anti-war movements of the 60s were successful because they combined mass action with legislative action such as petitions and even going so far as to influence house and senate commitees and working with individual politicians on legislation.

Politicians are influenced by events in the outside world but they are far more influenced by events within their own world. That is what makes the petition so powerful.

Consider the Olympic Torch Protests in the Context of the Buildup Towards War with Iran

Today's Olympic torch protests emphasize the tremendous public relations nightmare China faces concerning its human rights abuses in Tibet and its upcoming Olympic games. Consider this article from AFP:

Growing anti-China protests underscore clout of Tibet lobby
http://afp.google.com/article/ALeqM5hJpIMA1uBHtL6eOjizDkye0X61Jg

A caption:

"It shows the power of international civil society groups, which China failed to take into account when it bid for the Olympics," said Asian expert Mohan Malik of the Hawaii-based Asia-Pacific Center for Security Studies.

In March, barely five months before the start of the summer Games, anti-China protests erupted in Lhasa, countered by a fierce crackdown which earned Beijing international condemnation. The flame relay quickly became a mobile rallying point for anti-Beijing protesters.

"The fact that the Olympic flame was extinguished -- even though by officials for safety reasons -- was a remarkable victory for the protests and a big loss of face for the Chinese leadership," Malik said."

I Call B*llshit on the Bhutto Assassination

It has scarcely been 24 hours since Benazir Bhutto was assassinated in Pakistan and already my bullshit meter is off the charts. Here is a quick rundown of the conflicting narratives currently fighting for the place of the "Official Conspiracy Theory" (OCT) of the Bhutto assassination.

Earlier today news outlets were running a news story similar to this one:

http://www.cnn.com/2007/WORLD/asiapcf/12/27/pakistan.bhutto/index.html

in which the Bhutto assassination was described thusly: "Bhutto died of a gunshot wound to the neck, the Pakistani Interior Ministry said. The attacker then blew himself up. The bomb attack killed at least 22 others, doctors said."

In other words, the gunman and the suicide bomber were the same person, and he blew himself up after the attack to avoid being captured, and also possibly in the hopes of becoming a martyr.

Two Provisions of PATRIOT Act Unconstitutional: Federal Judge

http://hosted.ap.org/dynamic/stories/P/PATRIOT_ACT_LAWSUIT?SITE=AP&SECTION=HOME&TEMPLATE=DEFAULT

PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) -- Two provisions of the USA Patriot Act are unconstitutional because they allow search warrants to be issued without a showing of probable cause, a federal judge ruled Wednesday.

U.S. District Judge Ann Aiken ruled that the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act, as amended by the Patriot Act, "now permits the executive branch of government to conduct surveillance and searches of American citizens without satisfying the probable cause requirements of the Fourth Amendment."

Portland attorney Brandon Mayfield sought the ruling in a lawsuit against the federal government after he was mistakenly linked by the FBI to the Madrid train bombings that killed 191 people in 2004.

The Patriot Act greatly expanded the authority of law enforcers to investigate suspected acts of terrorism, both domestically and abroad.

Can Truthers Learn from Quebec History (or The Coming Quiet 9/11 Revolution)

Many 9/11 Truthers bemoan the absence of a revolutionary spirit in America today. Knowledge of the truth about 9/11 necessarily creates the desire the see massive social change take place in America, to bring justice to the perpetrators and safety from future false flag terror attacks and the inevitable wars that follow. Many see the passivity and apathy in America and fear there is no hope for America. It's ideals are gone, the public has been brainwashed and the system is corrupted beyond repair.

As someone with a deep knowledge of Quebec history, I see many parallels to America today and Quebec in the 1950s. For those without any background knowledge of the Quiet Revolution in Quebec see these links:

Jeb Bush Declared Martial Law in Florida on 9/7/01

http://www.rense.com/general14/jebdeclared.htm

Sorry if I'm posting old news. I stumbled onto this on the internet and wondered how many others know about it. It seems like a pretty big smoking gun to me.

On Friday, September 7, Jeb Bush signed Florida Executive Order No. 01-261 which states, in part:

"I hereby delegate to The Adjutant General of the State of Florida all necessary authority, within approved budgetary appropriations or grants, to order members of the Florida National Guard into active service, as defined by Section 250.27, Florida Statutes, for the purpose of training to support law-enforcement personnel and emergency-management personnel in the event of civil disturbances or natural disasters and to provide training support to law-enforcement personnel and community-based organizations relating to counter drug operations. This Executive Order shall remain in full force and effect until the earlier of its revocation or June 30, 2003."

Pentagon has plan for three-day 'blitz' against Iran: claim

The plan calls for "taking out the entire Iranian military”

Sarah Baxter, Washington
The Sunday Times
September 2, 2007

THE Pentagon has drawn up plans for massive airstrikes against 1,200 targets in Iran, designed to annihilate the Iranians’ military capability in three days, according to a national security expert.

Alexis Debat, director of terrorism and national security at the Nixon Center, said last week that US military planners were not preparing for “pinprick strikes” against Iran’s nuclear facilities. “They’re about taking out the entire Iranian military,” he said.

Debat was speaking at a meeting organised by The National Interest, a conservative foreign policy journal. He told The Sunday Times that the US military had concluded: “Whether you go for pinprick strikes or all-out military action, the reaction from the Iranians will be the same.” It was, he added, a “very legitimate strategic calculus”.
