The Real 9/11 Trials:

Interview with Sander Hicks Regarding his new play Bronze Star, on the life and death of Dr. David Graham, a slain American whistle-blower.

Sander, New York hasn’t seen you write a new play in about ten years. Why now? What's up?

Well, I am inspired by the courage and the self-sacrifice of this guy Dr. David Graham. I never met him, but I feel really close to him. Like me, he spent some time trying to put together the puzzle of the 9/11 event. He met two of the so-called "9/11 Terrorists" ten months before 9/11. He tried to do the right thing, and he met with the FBI several times, before 9/11. But then, he died. And not enough people have asked “why?” I have been to his hometown, down in Louisiana, several times. Graham was beloved in his community, he was a great guy. But the newspaper in Shreveport didn't write the obvious: it was weird that Graham died right as his new book on his 9/11 terrorist experience was about to come out. His life is one hell of a drama. There are immense political and social and spiritual forces clashing around this man’s life.

But 9/11? That’s past. Come on, it happened almost 11 years ago.

Truth Party Launches in Boston

Truth Party National Tour Launches in Boston, MA

BREAKING NEWS: The Slingshot to the Juggernaut national tour launched last night in Boston, MA, at a fun and lively democratic event. It was the launch of a new national tour for author and Truth Party founder Sander Hicks. Hicks spoke for about two hours, in an open, free-flowing speech/conversation about: 9/11 Truth, peace activism, the nature of global power, USA peace leadership, nonviolence, and the construction of reality.

Congrats to Mr. Michael LaBelle, and Ms. Mia Hamel, who were elected by consensus last night to be the facilitators of the Truth Party, Boston, MA.

One lesson we are taking away: "There HAS to be a way out." This is our new mantra, as the tour heads north to New Hampshire. It's all too easy to get caught up in the darkness of the corruption of global power. The spiraling circles of elite secrecy can be maddening. It is good to seek after knowledge of the true nature of global power. But we always have to remain focused on solutions, too.

Truth Party / Sander Hicks National Tour Plans

Slingshot to the Juggernaut

In the ten years since 9/11, a grassroots truth movement has sprung up that unites the best elements of the Right and Left. The call to resist the secrecy, imperialism, and the manipulation of the elite has been heard by a wide spectrum of people, across religious and political lines. Here is a fertile ground for serious change.

The call to truth and peace is a call being heard by a massive resistance in North Africa right now. We here in the USA have suffered from tyranny, secrecy and a growing police state. It’s time for the people of the USA to join the new global revolution.

Sander Hicks is an activist and a writer, working on his new book, "Slingshot to the Juggernaut." (Soft Skull, Fall, 2012). He is the founder of the Truth Party. The time has come to unveil the future.

What Will Happen:

NEW MEDIA CO PLANS from Sander Hicks: Let's Build a Catapult

9/11 Blogger Friends:

Hey there! I wanted you to know that I have launched something pretty big, via KickStarter. I need your help.

Together, we are going to create "The Catapult Project." This is the research needed to create a whole new kind of democratic media company. The technology is in our hands, now we just need a strategy refined.

Using KickStarter, I am asking for your pledge, to help me raise $22K in the next four weeks. We can do this, I have raised over $500K in my lifetime, running the media ventures Soft Skull Press and Vox Pop.

Sure, the repression has gotten harsh in the last couple of years, but we the people are stronger. We are going to bounce back. We will speak truth to power, and take away their war-making, death-making, anti-truth addiction.

I know I am onto something. I left NYC six weeks ago, because I needed to recharge in California. I just got word that my book proposal has been accepted by a kick-ass independent publisher. More on that later.

Free Music from the Truth Gathering

My Friends,

Before I head upstate to prepare, I want you to know, that I have worked very hard to put together one super cool, revolutionary, communal, gathering of peace and love and truth. It’s next weekend. You have to come.

It’s the Truth Gathering. It will be one of the peak experiences of your life. Http://www.sanderhicks.com/truthgathering.html

As a free gift to you tonight, to promote the Gathering, I am releasing two songs I recorded with Rebel Moon. One song is all about the struggle for Truth in this day and age, it’s called “No Conspiracy Theory” the other is “The Waltz for Rachel Corrie.” http://www.sanderhicks.com/rebelmoon.html

Also, check out the report I did on Kenneth Feinberg, for 9/11 Blogger. There’s also an overview of what the 9/11 Truth Movement has been going through lately:

From Agent Orange, to 9/11, to BP: Kenneth Feinberg is Master of Disaster

Written for the 9/11 Truth Movement. Please forward widely.

By Sander Hicks
Founder, The Truth Party
www.Sanderhicks.com/truthgathering.html

Kenneth Feinberg, a key figure in the cover-up of 9/11, has popped up again at the forefront of the BP oil spill cover-up. Appointed by President Obama, Feinberg heads the compensation fund for BP that will reduce the oil giant’s liability in the Gulf, by twisting victims into out-of-court settlements.

“Feinberg’s a BP-paid lawyer, pretending to be neutral, acting with authority granted by the President, talking to spill victims and suggesting that they deal directly with him, and not their own lawyers,” a New Orleans attorney told Wsws.org.

Kenneth Feinberg was “Special Master” of the 9/11 Victims Compensation Fund. This Congressionally-created cash cow was created by the Bush White House, with plenty of input from the insurance and airline lobbies, to prevent victims’ families’ lawsuits. The average family that received $1.25 million signed away their right to sue for negligence.

TRUTH GATHERING Manifesto & News Update

An Update from the Truth Gathering, Aug 14-16, Catskill Mountains,
http://www.sanderhicks.com/truthgathering.html

Hi Folks! I wanted to enjoy this visionary statement from Maryland lawyer and Anthrax-Truth investigator, Barry Kissin.

He inspired me to add an entire extra day (Monday, Aug 16) to the Truth Gathering, so that we make the time to strategize about solutions, political moves, and strategy, as a movement, and as the "Truth Party."

On a lighter note, I have been dualistically emphasizing the serious AND the fun about the Truth Gathering.

And on the topic of fun, I have brewed a very special "Truth Party Foundation American Pale Ale" with caramel malts, ginger, Pilsen Light malt extract, chinook and amarillo hops. We will debut this ale at the Saturday 1 PM (Aug 14) BBQ that kicks off the Truth Gathering. [and IF you don't drink, I respect you, I will make you feel included by brewing you a special iced tea!]

We have SOME housing available, see the website: http://www.sanderhicks.com/TGhousingspecial.html
