A Manchurian Candidate in the white house?
By Dave Lindorff

With a viral campaign underway via email, right-wing radio, and on the street suggesting that Barack Obama is a black “Manchurian Candidate,” secretly trained as a Muslim fanatic who will insinuate himself into the White House, thence to undermine all that we hold dear, perhaps it is time to look at the Manchurian Candidate we already have in the White House, who, together with his handler over in Blair House, has pretty much done all the damage already.

George Bush came to office in 2001 promising a new era of integrity, civility and “compassionate conservatism,” an era of humble American foreign policy, and a bi-partisan approach to government.

What did we actually get?

Once in office, this chameleon president almost immediately set out to embroil the country in a major war in the Middle East against the nation of Iraq. The game plan was laid out at the president’s first National Security Council meeting, attended by Vice President Dick Cheney (the man holding Bush’s controller), Donald Rumsfeld, Condoleezza Rice, and Treasury Secretary Paul O’Neal (who later spilled the beans about the session).

Bush also famously ignored all warnings about the imminent attack on the World Trade Center and the Pentagon. How much he and the rest of the administration knew about that attack in advance, or whether elements within the administration may have even helped it along, remains the subject of considerable interest and investigation....

Hello Everyone, Hope you are all doing well.
Take a few minutes and make a difference by sending out an email to Air America host Richard Greene.
It was brought to my attention from the WAC Colorado group that last night Air America Host Richard Greene, who was broadcasting from Sander Hicks Vox Pop in Brooklyn, was asking for emails from people expressing their feelings about the 9/11 Truth movement.
He wants to determine whether the AirAmerica audience wants programs that deal with the Truth of Sept. 11. He said he will pass on the emails he gets to AirAmerica management.
Here's our opportunity, an action that everyone can do and get the attention of national, alternative, progressive radio!
Please send an email to
It can be very brief, simply say something like:
9/11 Truth is vitally important and deserves air time and a new investigation.
In the subject line, write something like--
"9/11 Truth" and/or words like "crucial,"or "very important" or "essential"
Or write something as detailed as you like, maybe they will be looking for host as well?
The key is to just send out an email.


Use Prayer Requests to Spread Truth
By GeorgeWashington
Created 2008-02-11 11:47

Note: If you are an atheist, that's totally cool. This essay is aimed at the 85% of the American population which identifies itself as Christian, and the millions more who identify themselves as Jewish, Buddhist, Hindu, Muslim, etc.

Every Sunday, I submit a prayer request at my place of worship (it happens to be a church; but this would work just as well at a synagogue, temple, or mosque).

Because millions of Americans submit prayer requests in their places of worship every year, it dawned on me . . . why not use prayer requests to spread truth?

For example, everyone who goes to a church, synagogue, temple or mosque could submit a prayer request every visit saying something like:

Please pray for: 9/11 Truth

Comments: Please see for more information

If you believe in prayer, then please consider that praying for 9/11 truth is a good thing.

Whether or not you believe in prayer, you have to admit that people on the prayer team are going to ask "what the heck is this?" and then look at to see what's going on. That could open a lot of eyes that would not otherwise be opened.

Breakthrough into Mainstream Media; Truth will not be denied
By Choco

Things have been getting interesting out here in Seattle, in case you haven't heard. I had a break through with the Seattle PI newspaper as they finally published one of my submissions. On Jan. 25, Kimberly Mills and the PI editorial staff published my article Brazen Neocons at it again. This 550 word article describes the blatent false flag attempt at the Straight of Hormuz and I tie it into the Bogus official story about 9-11. I'm new on this site, but have been battling for truth on Thom Hartmann's site and this is the post and link to the PI. [1]

Only a week later another article appeared in the same spot by Richard W. Behan, a Korean war veteran and Academic. His article was about the deterimination by Bush and Cheney to attack Afghanistan for the benefit of the oil and gas pipeline construction from the Caspian sea. This next link is from TH's site with some of my comments and Behan's article and another link to the PI [2]

You can read the discussions on Thom's site as well as in the PI's electronic submissions. But then it gets even more interesting. On Feb. 5, the PI's own editorial board published a short article called 9/11 Commission: Fox in the hen house; This editorial was a call for a new administration to form a non partisan, independent commission to report on the attacks. Their article was in response to Philip Shenon's new book, The Commission, The Uncensored History of the 9/11 Commission. Of course, unless you've missed it somehow, Shenon ties executive director Philip Zelikow to Rice, Rove and the White House. Here's the link: [3]

Then, on Feb. 7, former US Senator, Slade Gorton, also a member of the 9/11 commission, submits a letter to the editor basically exonorating Zelikow from suspicion or conflicts of interest and Gorton finishes by admitting that it was he who had nominated Zelikow for the role of overseer of the 9/11 commission.

The main point I'd like to get across is that for a William Randolph Hearst-owned daily newspaper, the PI, to come around to calling for a fully independent investigation on 9/11 is, I consider, a major breakthrough. Remember, WRH owns Popular Mechanics, the History Channel and the SF Chronicle, all have produced orchestrated attempts to debunk the 9/11 Truth.

I'm asking people to respond to Gorton's letter as neither I nor Behan am allowed to submit another letter within an alloted time span. If anyone can get David Ray Griffin or anyone else suitably knowledgable on Zelikow, then please urge him or her to write to the PI. We have a slight opening, lets use it.

An Efficient Way to Spread Truth That Everyone Can Do
By Colombo

Since our mainstream media continue to censor 9/11 truth, I urge everyone to begin “mass emailing” 9/11 truth messages now! It is not difficult to disseminate thousands of emails per day. Here are some tips to get you started:


Sign Congressman Wexler's Petition: Hearings on Cheney

The charges are too serious to ignore. There is credible evidence that the Vice President abused the power of his office, and not only brought us into an unneccesary war but violated the civil liberties and privacy of American citizens. It is the constitutional duty of Congress to hold impeachment hearings.



David has a new book called The Great Awakening: A Buddhist Social Theory that has just come out from Wisdom Publications. Do you want to know what Buddhist social theory has to say about poverty and war and other social ills? This is the book. Read his chapters like "Can Corporations Become Enlightened?" or "Zen and the Art of War," or "Loving the World as our Own Body: the Nondualist Ethics of Taoism, Buddhism and Deep Ecology."

Military and Intelligence Officers: Your Country Needs You!
By GeorgeWashington [1]

If you are a current or former military or intelligence officer, you just may be able to save your country.

Blowing the whistle [2] on a false flag attack [3] is obviously crucial (and see this [4]).

But there's something else you can do to save the country.


Meeting with as many state troopers, marshals, police captains, national guardsmen, soldiers and other folks who would actually be tasked with implementing martial law if and when the powers-that-be decide that velvet-gloved "soft fascism" is no longer working or moving their plans along fast enough.

Many police officers, guardsmen and military personnel are good people who simply don't know what's really going on in America.

As former officers, it is possible that they will respect and look up to you. If you educate them with the most well-documented facts about our country's descent into fascism, then you will be planting vital seeds of truth.

One day, the people you talk to (and those they speak with) just might say "no" if they are asked to carry out illegal orders to imprison, kill or torture Americans simply for exercising their lawful, constitutional rights to criticize the government.

Who knows? By talking to them with respect and truth, they may one day even help to expose the crimes or arrest those criminals who are using their positions within the U.S. government or the defense industry to destroy the nation and line their own pockets (for example, these guys [5]).

New York Times Bestselling Author Takes Aim at 9/11 Coverup:


Fear, Loathing & the Crisis of Confidence
by: David Sirota

In my new nationally syndicated column out today, I explore the root cause of America's anger at our federal government and the growing embrace of conspiracy theories - trends displayed in recent Scripps Howard/Ohio University studies. It is not just a reaction to fear in the age of terrorism, but is a more fundamental crisis of confidence in our public institutions....

....To be sure, many of these specific conspiracy theories are absolutely offensive. For instance, there is absolutely no proof that 9/11 was an "inside job" [Bad link] with government officials actively helping the attack - and those who push this myth without facts +There+are+MOUNTAINS+of+evidence+permanently+recorded+on+the+WWW.+See+the+rest+of+this+newsletter+for+a+sampling+of+it.+We+invite+Mr.+Sirota+to+do+a+few+columns+on+THAT!+Got+the+courage+for+that,+David.?+We+hope+so.+ should be met with scorn. However, the media is also mislabeling some very clear facts as "conspiracy theories." For instance, it is not a "theory" that government officials knew of Osama bin Laden's growing determination to commit a domestic terrorist attack against the United States nor that terrorists were looking to crash airplanes into buildings. Those are just historical facts - not conspiracy theories....



9/11 Truth movement Is Growing a Progressive Wing

[Excerpt from Forum:]

For people who are not much in touch with the ongoing PROGRESSIVE ORGANIZING all over the country, here are what I (and I think most progressives) see as top priority (aside from elections):

1. Grassroots campaign for PUBLICLY FINANCED POLITICAL CAMPAIGNS at all levels of government. Sound hard? It is: but there is already great progress toward this in Maine, Arizona, Portland OR, and elswhere, and a grassroots groundswell for it. Also can be googled as VOTER OWNED ELECTIONS.

2. ENDING "CORPORATE PERSONHOOD." There are books and articles on this, and several organizations who've been working on it for a long time.
There is on the web a good book on this general subject, which can be read/printed online: GANGS OF AMERICA by Ted Nace. (The gangs being the corporations.)

Email Action

Send the following email to everyone you know, so that even people who get all of their news from msnabcnnfox, which censors 9/11 information, get a dose of truth. There are almost 100 million people who have already woken up to at least some of the truth about 9/11, so we can spread this message virally . . .

9/11 Truthers are Nuts!

Or are they?

Let's take a look:




Iraq war veteran and experienced demolitions expert blows the cover on 9/11 inside job:

Meet Torin Wolf. He has a broad and varied background as a US Army Combat Nurse during Operation Iraqi Freedom....

....The presentation moves on and goes through some of the just plain crazy theories of why the towers fell, such as space beams, holograms, missiles, orbs, pterodactyls, etc., and easily debunks them. Torin then adds, "There is evidence most of these are put out by the government as disinfo." Then explains how the White House, in violation of the law, has bought 28 billion, "Billion with a B" in fake news.

"But the craziest, most truly unhinged conspiracy theory for the towers falling on 9/11?" Torin asks rhetorically. "Fire." The official story cannot be recreated by any experiment. NIST is the government agency involved in attempting to model what happened to the world trade center on 9/11, and they fail horribly....

9/11 Inside Job Smoking Gun Video

If tens upon tens of firefighters, paramedics, and EMT's said in late 2001 and early 2002 that they saw flashes at the base and middle of the Twin Towers and heard multiple explosions "like gunfire" immediately prior to each towers' collapse, would you listen? Can you look at the evidence with fresh eyes? No disinfo or sloppy logic here...

This can go viral with your help.





The 9/11/01 attack was a complex psychological operation carefully designed to conceal the truth, in spite of numerous obvious red flags in the fraudulent official story. As such it relies on the dissemination of memes that overpower rational consideration of the evidence. One of the most important memes is the idea that all people who question the basic tenets of the official story are loony conspiracy theorists, whose ideas are not worthy of consideration. Part of the construction of this meme was to make the attack so audacious that even a straightforward accounting of the basic facts sounds too outrageous to possibly be true.

The ideas that the Twin Towers were destroyed by explosive demolition and that top-level administration officials were involved in the planning and execution of the attack are so painful that most people reflexively reject them, even if that means ignoring mountains of evidence. Nevertheless the perpetrators run the risk that these ideas will gain currency and begin to be examined with some objectivity if the loony conspiricism meme fails to maintain its hold.


An effective tool for reinforcing the loony conspiricism meme is the introduction of theories that that have no basis in evidence, such as the idea that no planes hit the towers. The association of these ideas with the careful research of investigators in the 9/11 Truth Movement stands to set back the cause of awakening the larger public to the facts of the attack.


T H E * N E W * G O L D E N * A G E

"The entire upheaval could last from 2009 to 2016, but if "we the people" strive hard, it could end sooner. When things are at their worst, greatness springs from the resilience of the human spirit. It is for us to turn the near-term adversity into lasting bliss. We will have to persevere in order to open a new chapter in the ever-flowing spring of civilization. Our success is assured, because history is about to repeat itself: after the downfall of the American business empire will come a global golden age."

Excerpts from the 2007 book:

THE NEW GOLDEN AGE The Coming Revolution Against Political Corruption and Economic Chaos
~~by Ravi Batra

"Batra has set the standard for economic analysis."

"Dr. Batra writes about his subjects as clearly as if he were telling bedtime stories."
-The New York Times

....THE BIG QUESTION NOW IS, what is in store for us...? My answer, coming in the midst of numerous omens and forebodings, will surprise you: we are headed toward a golden age, which will come after a tidal wave of public fact-finding and a subsequent voter's revolution. Unfortunately, there are rough times ahead as we tackle the social, political and economic ills of our time, but then the electorate will vote for those who favor unprecedented economic and political reform. So good times will follow bad, but the end product will be so wonderful that we will gradually forget the bad. We will come to view our struggle as the price we had to pay to rid the nation of the malaise, corruption and injustices that plague us today....

....The United States does not export much, but it does export ideas, which today mainly emit hedonism and materialism. A new standard exalting martial qualities and magnanimity will soon replace the currently dominant American ethos. It will also sound the death knell for tricklism, which is creating povery around the world. America's revolutionary ideas will quickly captivate the globe; they will spread like wild fire and eradicate poverty within a generation. The Internet will make sure that the American renaissance spreads its fragrance all over the planet. Verily, for the first time in history, there will be a global golden age.


9/11 Truth Movement Fights Back Against DISINFORMATION and AGENTS PROVOCATEURS

Hoffman: ....Very entertaining to watch, very vivid, just lurid — it's ridiculous. It's all just completely concocted, he makes it sound like you, and Wolsey and these people that he’s saying are COINTELPRO just popped up in the last year is just an utter lie. I think it’s a really good test of whether people are really in this in the benefit of our movement: are going to tolerate this sort of thing? Where are the voices of the alleged leaders of the 9/11 truth movement about this and similar incidents? I think the silence from some quarters is deafening....
