Dems Win VA, Implementing 9/11 Commission's Recommendations Top Priority


As Kyle Hence recently said at a showing of 9/11: Press For Truth, "We can't let Pelosi get up there and champion the recommendations of this damn Commission without first getting to the bottom of what really happened, and answering all of the questions that the families raised." - Jon

After their victories in Tuesday's mid-term election, Democratic Party leaders in the U.S. House of Representatives are laying out their agenda for majority rule, while Republicans analyze their losses. Democrats have again called on President Bush to work with them on a plan that would bring U.S. troops home from Iraq.

Democratic leaders in the House used separate news conferences to talk about how they intend to use their new power in the House.

Voted into the majority with a gain of at least 30 seats in the House, Democrats plan to tackle a range of foreign and domestic issues, from the war in Iraq to the economy and corruption in Congress.

Sen. Charles Schumer, D-NY, (r), and Rep. Rahm Emanuel, D-Ill., chairman of^House Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee Rahm Emanuel, chief architect of the Democrats' campaign strategy, says they will use their majority to move the country forward, while trying to avoid what he calls the politics of polarization practiced by Republicans.

"There are not just good Democratic ideas and bad Republican ideas, or good Republican ideas and bad Democratic ideas; there are ideas that either move you forward or take you back and if we approach it that way I think we're going to make a lot of progress," he said.

Democratic priorities, include implementing recommendations of the bipartisan commission that investigated the September 11 [2001] attacks, increasing the minimum wage, and laying the groundwork for an eventual U.S. troop withdrawal from Iraq.

Congresswoman Nancy Pelosi, poised to become the first female to hold the powerful post of Speaker of the House in January, says Democrats want to bring integrity and civility to Congress, and held out the offer of cooperation to President Bush.

"We pledged partnerships with Republicans in Congress, and with the president, and not partisanship," she said.

But for Democrats to achieve their goals will partly depend on the final election results for the Senate, now hanging on the outcome of one still undetermined race in the state of Virginia.

Republican leaders, meanwhile, are analyzing their losses.

Congressman Tom Reynolds, who headed his party's campaign operations, blames losses on what he calls the sour national [political] environment, asserting the results while disappointing were not really surprising.

"The election really was a matter of history repeating itself," he said. "Second term, mid-term elections are the toughest for the president's party, and one like last night is absolutely no different."

In a post-election telephone conversation with President Bush, House Speaker-designate Pelosi says she emphasized the need to work together on Iraq.

"We know that stay the course [in Iraq] is not working, has not made our country safer, it has not honored our commitment to our troops and it has not brought stability to the region. We must not continue on this catastrophic path."

Pelosi and other Democrats will have an opportunity to drive home their views on Iraq and other matters when they meet with the president on Thursday.

In a news conference Wednesday, the president stood firm in his position that any precipitous U.S. withdrawal from Iraq would be harmful and undermine democracy there.

Prospective House Majority Leader, Congressman Steny Hoyer, said Democrats want success in Iraq no less than Republicans, adding that an upcoming report by a special commission headed by former Secretary of State James Baker will be a key to charting a new course.

Baker has said that report was delayed to ensure it would not influence the results of the congressional mid-term election.


This seems like such a "set-up" to me. With the "good" Democrats in power, people can now relax, and not be so pissed off. With the "good" Democrats in power, they can pass the 9/11 Commission's recommendations, and lend "credibility" to them. Making it seem like something is being done, when in fact the only thing being done is the destruction of our civil liberties.

It's ok. The "good" Democrats will turn this country around... a full 360 degree turn.

"It was all about finding a way to do it. That was the tone of it. The president saying ‘Go find me a way to do this."

Yeah, I'm very leery of that happening too....

.....but, if it does happen, we know that Alex Jones will be busting their chops over it on a daily basis....and exposing it for all, who care, to see....

The whole thing of Pelosi, et al, leading with "implementing the 9/11 Commission's recomendations" just makes me grind my teeth...

Still, some of those who would lead those committee's (and I think it was you, Jon, that posted this), Conyers, Dingell...give me a little hope....

But only a little....

Implementing the commission

Implementing the commission recommendations ought to be an impeachable offense, itself.

We need to hit up the left with all the ways

We need to hit up the left with all the ways that the 9/11 Commission has been discredited, and the dissatisfaction that the families have with it. We need to push this loud and hard from now until January. Hit up the left gate keepers once again. Why should we implement recommendations when the report didn't have all the facts? War drills lies. Mineta's testimony. ISI money connection to Atta. Zelikow's obvious partiality, etc. Now is the time to push Press for Truth to all the left gatekeepers. We need to break Press for truth into mainstream media, somehow.

All my efforts will go into promoting 9/11 Mysteries

And I'll be hitting up both the left, right, and center. People are going to unite around the issue of the demolitions. It's already happening--I see the progress every day more.

I am really pissed at Pelosi for her promises that they will not

seek to impeach Bush. (I'm sorry if I've posted this here too many times, but it is truly irking the hell out of me!)
What sort of underhanded deal lead Pelosi to commit herself & her party to this travesty of justice???

I am also sickened to hear so many Democrats saying nonsense like: "We're still going to get Osama & the other terrorists", and "We're surely going to impliment the recommendations of the 9/11 Commission."


while we're going to have to wait and see if Dem leadership will step up to the 9/11 plate, there are some House democrats who understand the stakes. Here's Rep. Dennis Kucinich (who I proudly voted for in 2004 primary) just last week...

Rep. Dennis Kucinich: Looking Past One-Party Rule

Posted on Oct 30, 2006

By Rep. Dennis Kucinich

Editor’s note: In advance of the election, Republicans painted Dennis Kucinich (D-OH) as the specter of a Democrat-controlled House. In this piece for Truthdig (originally posted on 10/30), Kucinich responds to the attack, and gives the American people a preview of what’s to come.

The Founders envisioned and created a national government with an intricate series of checks and balances. One-party rule has demolished that system. It has led to a government which has abused the war power, corrupted the Bill of Rights, established a national security state, and sharply accelerated upwards the wealth of the nation.

Under these circumstances, the American people, fed up with an illegal and untenable war, are demanding accountability and a true restoration of the two-party system. The 2006 elections will reflect the American people’s desire for a new start and a new direction. The desire for change is palpable. Few are more aware of this shift than the operatives of the Republican National Committee, who, in this election season, have attempted to make a new art form of the political smear.

A few days ago the RNC singled me out for obloquy. Let us consider the source. The tenor of their fear-driven attack is a measure of their anxiety-ridden anticipation: They have been institutionally and constitutionally incapable of publicly (and legally) accounting for their conduct of state.

I will not prejudice with any criticism or charges any oversight hearings of any committee I may chair in the next Congress. However, I do know that the American people still have unanswered questions about 9/11, WMDs, the abandonment of international law and the Geneva Conventions, the war in Iraq, the White House Iraq Group, the Rendon propaganda machine, Afghanistan, Abu Graib, Guantanamo, the Pat Tillman case, Iraq war casualties, the missing $10.8 billion in Iraq reconstruction funds, the human and economic toll of the war, rendition, wiretapping, domestic spying, and plans for an attack on Iran.

I do know that the American people cannot believe what has happened to this country in the past six years. I do know that the American people are demanding accountability.

And, in whatever capacity I serve in the next Congress, I will uphold the solemn oath I take to defend the Constitution of the United States, without regard to fear or favor.

Let's take advantage of this opportunity

Instead of freaking out at Pelosi being speaker, we should take this shift in congress as an opportunity. What I think needs to be done is this:

  1. We need to find out which Congressional Representatives feel there are still "unanswered questions" from 9/11
  2. After after creating a target list of willful Reps., we need begin a campaign to pressure them into holding hearings

This will take time. But that's just how our Congress works.

And don't forget the release of LC Final Cut next year. If can do the ground work before the film is released in theaters, we might be able use the momentum of the film as part of the strategy to have Congress hold 9/11 hearings.


For those who don't know Dr. Bob Bowman is a 911 truth candidate, former Lt Colonel, Vietnam vet and interceptor pilot who ran for congress in Fl's 15th district now allegedly defeated. After speaking with Dr. Bowman it doesn't make sense. Keep in mind that Fl is the vote rig capitol. Following is an email that I sent to Dr Bowman and forwarded to Clint Curtis (who was asked to rig the vote by congressman Feeney) he ran against Feeney and was also allegedly defeated but based on exit polls showing 80% + leaning toward democrat and precincts showing more republican votes than there are republican voters is going to challenge. He is willing to assist Dr Bowman in a challenge as well. SOMETHING'S REALLY FISHY IN FL. I DON'T THINK IT'S OVER YET. SEE EMAILS BELOW. PLEASE ENCOURAGE DR BOWMAN TO MOVE FORWARD WITH A CHALLENGE. ----- Original Message -----

Dear Mr. Bowman,

I spoke to you this morning about what happened, did the DCCC fund you and the question about whether or not the will of the VOTERS was truly reflected.

I'm so sorry for what's happened. Based on the information you shared with me about demographic support, I PRAY you will call Clint for some guidance regarding what you should do pertaining to the compilation of neccessary data to investigate your alledged defeat. America voted for a change in unprecedented numbers. The official numbers had Foley (the pedophile almost re-elected?) That just doen't seem right. I think an investigation is neccessary.

I will forward this to Clint's people and ask if there is a way to initiate such and endeavor. Hopefully so.

Warmest wishes,

Clint's response:
What we are doing in 24 is to launch a challenge of the election. We will then find the precincts that make no sense (statistically) and proceed to poll those precincts. Dr. Bowmans task will be a little harder than ours since he does not have pre-poll, internal poll and exit poll data to back his claim but I think we can assist by saying that our data showed a 80+ % leaning for the Democratic candidate and that should translate into better numbers in the 15th District as well as the 24th. Dr. Bowman needs to alert his counties SOE's that he is considering a challenge and get the voter history (by precinct) for the 15th district. I can then do the analysis and his volunteers can collect the info which will tie the voters to the votes.

Let me know if he wants to play. If you have any questions I can be reached at 321-xxx-xxxx.
