From Luke Rudkowski and WeAreChange
Today is the 2 year anniversary of the passing of Dan Wallace, he is forever in our hearts and minds. We will never forget him and the tremendous impact he has on the WeAreChange organization. We will continue doing actions on every 11th, confronting politicians, helping those affected by 9/11 and fighting tyranny in his memory. If it wasn't for Dan Wallace we would not be here today.
In my facts article, I state, "a different kind of praise for the 9/11 Report has come in the form of requests for "9/11-Type Commissions" for other horrible events in America's history such as Katrina and the recent "financial crisis." For Nicholas to recommend a Commission based on the 9/11 Commission to get "a better understanding of our shortcomings" was no surprise. To hear him recommend Philip Zelikow to write the "conclusions" of that Commission nearly made me lose my breakfast. - Jon
Putting Torture Behind Us
By NICHOLAS D. KRISTOF
Published: January 28, 2009
President Obama is resisting calls for an investigation into torture and other abuses during the Bush years, so the chance to learn from our mistakes is slipping away.
The following is a January 28, 2009 Freedom of Information Act reply from the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission, within which they indicate that no responsive records were located pertaining to thousands of SEC investigative files reportedly destroyed on September 11, 2001 following the collapse of World Trade Center building 7.

Mr Netanyahu, said terrorists would target the Church of the Holy Sepulchre (Church of the Resurrection) – Christianity's holiest site, if Israel relinquished control of Jerusalem.
"Radical Islam is willing and will want to attack the symbolic heart of the Christian religion," he said. "This will incur a chain reaction we can't even envision. We will witness an escalation of religious conflict above and beyond the regional conflict we have now."
The leader of the Right-wing Likud opposition recalled that he had warned Islamic terrorists would detonate a nuclear device in the Manhattan World Trade Centre complex in a 1995 book, six years before the Sept 11 attacks.
Israel annexed Jerusalem after the 1967 war and has overseen a massive expansion of the city's Jewish population.
The Obama Spectacle: History, Hypocrisy, and Empire By Larry Pinkney "BlackCommentator" January 29, 2009
The Obama Spectacle
History, Hypocrisy, and Empire
By Larry Pinkney
January 29, 2009 "BlackCommentator" -- January 22, 2009 -- The so-called democracy of the powerful U.S. elite continues to live up to its legacy of hypocrisy and deceit.
Now that the spectacle of the Barack Obama coronation as the “American” Empire’s first African-American emperor has run its course, and many, many millions of dollars have been spent on self-adulation by the power elite of this nation, the huddled masses will necessarily be compelled to return to a system of no universal, single-payer health care, increasing joblessness, insatiable corporate / military greed, homelessness, de facto racial disparity & discord, police brutality, a burgeoning U.S. prison population, and endless U.S. wars abroad. For yet again, this nation will have done what it all too often does: perverted its promise, including the dream of the Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., into a hypocritical nightmare of gigantic and historic proportions.

Many of the journalists who’ve reported on the Clarion Fund and its anti-Islam “documentary” Obsession have wondered why the film credits listed fake names for the two producers.
Yesterday we reported that the real name of one of the producers is Erik Werth. Thanks to Meg Laughlin of the St. Petersburg Times, we may have the answer. The Charlotte Observer reported the following in 1995:

Man charged in Secret Service ruse

Jack Blood - Are The Inmates Running The Asylum?
Could you be wrong about everything? Maybe you are..
Maybe the Government really is just an incompetent body of public servants, who just want to make life better for hundreds of millions of Americans, and share the love.
Maybe we are not losing our rights, and our sovereignty is as safe as ever.
Maybe perpetual war is necessary, Homeland Security is protecting us from the terrorists, and pervasive snooping and data basing is for own good.
Maybe fluoride, Aspartame, MSG, processed foods, pharmaceuticals, Genetically Modified food, and pervasive aerosol spraying are all really good for us.
Dallas MLK People's Parade of 19th - Raw Footage - #2
More on the Martin Luther King Parades here:
During the TWO Dallas Parades we gave away 1,600 DVDs and 4,000 Broadsheets.
Chairman of the House Judiciary Committee John Conyers (D-MI) issued a subpoena for Karl Rove to testify regarding controversies surrounding his actions under the Bush Administration yesterday.
Rove is wanted for questioning specifically about the Justice Department's firing of U.S. attorneys in 2006, as well as other accusations of Rove abusing his position to influence the decision making process of the United States government.
Rove ignored a previous subpoena issued by the House Judiciary Committee calling on him to testify on July 10, 2008 citing executive privilege. As a result, the committee voted 20-14 in favor of holding Rove in contempt of congress. However, the vote was in reality only a recommendation.
