Former Governor of Minnesota Jesse Ventura Becomes a 9/11 Truth-seeker:



A Talk by John Perkins
best-selling author of


It was a change of consciousness. Civil movements are powerful. I think there are a few of you out there who may be familiar, I've written five other books before this one on indigenous people and shamanism. That was when I was doing the nonprofit work which was partly assuaging my guilt. I took bribes not to write this book back in the early 1990s and put most of the money in the nonprofit, which went to helping indigenous people in many of the countries that I had ripped off before. But what I've learned, I've worked with many, many indigenous countries around the world, the Bugis of Indonesia, the Bushmen, the Zulus, the people of the Asian Steppes, the Mayas, the Hopi, the Quechua, the Shuar, all of these people have prophecies. Every one of them that I know of has a prophecy that we are in a time of tremendous transition and a potential for great things to happen. I was with the Dalai Lama not long ago in Ladakh, and I just came back from Tibet a few months ago. And those prophecies are everywhere. I believe that we're in a time when it's been prophesied that this is the time for potential change, not that change will happen, but that the potential exists and we have to do it.

And I believe what the indigenous people have always taught me throughout the years from many, many different cultures, that each one of us comes into this body at this time with a mission for a reason. And our schools often teach us to forget about that. But here we are now, at this very critical time. Each of you has come in here at this time for a reason with a mission, and you're sitting in this room now for some reason. Something drew you here today.The idea of a confession of an economic hit man. I don't think you're all Catholic priests waiting for someone to confess into your ear out there. What drew you here? Why are you here this time? I think you're here because you're ready to see us move to this next step. You're ready to see us realize the dream of our founding fathers, you're ready to see us create a world that we're going to be proud of....

Quoted from:


I pray, but there are many misunderstandings about prayer. For many prayer is talking to God, sometimes with a great list of requests and needs -- sort of like a child's Christmas list mailed to Santa Claus....

....Prayer changes our frame of reference; it is not merely a preparation for action. Rather, prayer must be understood as an action in itself, a potent political weapon to be used in spiritual warfare against the most powerful forces of the world. Prayer is not undertaken in place of other actions but is the foundation for all the other actions we take.

I recall the way Archbishop Tutu would pray in South Africa during the apartheid era. His prayers constantly affirmed God's power over the claims of the state -- that God's power was a threat to the state's power. And prayer, in recognizing God's authority over the evil powers, moves us beyond opposition to affirmation and beyond resistance to celebration. Thus, prayer and the results of prayer can be the most revolutionary of acts. The powers that be in this world are aware of this. That is why they consider those who pray in this way to be a threat....


....At the height of the Montgomery bus boycott, King received dozens of death threats by phone and mail. One evening in January 1956, the young minister had a pivotal experience, which would later be referred to as his “kitchen table conversion.” Stewart Burns recounts King's epiphany in TO THE MOUNTAINTOP:

“Around midnight, as he struggled to sleep, the phone rang one more time. 'Listen, n*****,' an ugly voice crackled over the wire, 'we're tired of you and your mess now. If you aren't out of this town in three days, we're going to blow your brains out and blow up your house.' He paced the bedroom floor in angry fear, then walked across the hall to the kitchen and heated some coffee. He tried to find solace in what philosophy and theology had taught him about the meaning of evil. Could there be good without evil? Could there be redemption without sin? No answer came to shake his despair. Nothing relieved the fear in his gut. He was ready to give up.'

“'I got to the point that I couldn't take it any longer,' he recalled in a sermon the summer before his death. 'I was weak. Something said to me you can't call on Daddy now,' as he had in past troubles. 'You can't even call on Mama now. You've got to call on that something in that person that your daddy used to tell you about. That power that can make a way out of no way.' He had to call on the Holy Spirit's power to help him through. The church had been so much his home all of his young life that he had never stepped outside of it far enough, or boldly enough, to forge his own relationship with God, with Jesus, with the Spirit – not that of his father or mother or Ebenezer Baptist in Atlanta.

“He discovered at this midnight hour that 'religion had to become real to me' – not merely the hand-me-down family business -- 'and I had to know God for myself. With my head in my hands, I bowed down over that cup of coffee. Oh, yes, I prayed a prayer... The words I spoke to God that midnight are still vivid in my memory. Lord, I'm down here trying to do what's right. I think the cause that we represent is right. But Lord, I must confess that I'm weak now. I'm faltering. I'm losing my courage. I am afraid. The people are looking to me for leadership. I can't let the people see me like this because if they see me weak and losing my courage, they will begin to get weak. I am at the end of my powers. I have nothing left. I've come to the point where I can't face it alone.'

“'At that moment,' he continued, 'I experienced the presence of the Divine as I had never experienced Him before. I could hear an inner voice saying to me, Martin Luther, stand up for righteousness, stand up for justice, stand up for the truth. And lo, I will be with you, even until the end of the world. I heard the voice of Jesus saying still to fight on. He promised never to leave me, never to leave me alone. No, never alone. No, never alone. He promised never to leave me, never to leave me alone.'”

That experience and the deep personal faith that continued to sustain him shaped Martin Luther King's political commitments and public leadership. For faith to keep him going, it had to get “real,” it had to get personal. Likewise, the social change we need today will not come about just through “education,” through selecting the right “issues,” through finding the right “policy ideas.” As important as education, issues, and policy ideas are, we will need something deeper. We will need societal transformation for real social change, and that never comes about without personal transformation as well. Faith can provide the fire, the passion, the strength, the perseverance, and the hope necessary for social movements to win, and to change politics. Without that, it's just a debate over issues and ideas. And when the going gets tough or even risky and dangerous, many people will give up (or go back to watching television) – unless they have learned to tap the deep resources of faith....



An Open Letter to the Progressive Left
By Justin A. Martell and Michael Jackman

During this primary season, many advocates for a new investigation into the events surrounding 9/11 have been greeted with a tremendous amount of hostility. The thing is, most of this hostility has not been from “right-wingers,” but mostly from members of the so called progressive left. As registered Democrats, we personally, have been told that we are an “embarrassment to the party,” and called names that we will not repeat. Why has the left shown so much hostility towards advocates of 9/11 truth and justice?

As of January, 2007, the Bush Administration had been caught telling 935 lies. No folks, we didn’t say mistakes, they told 935 LIES. The most audacious lies being the administration’s manipulation of intelligence used to get us into war with Iraq. These lies have, as of today, claimed a total of 3,975 in Iraq alone. The U.S. led occupation in Iraq has also claimed close to 90,000 Iraqi civilian lives. All of this death and destruction has been due bold face lies told by the Bush Administration.

What was just outlined in the paragraph above is not disputed by members of the progressive left or even by their beloved candidates, Sen. Hillary Clinton (D-NY) and Sen. Barack Obama (D-IL). Why then, after this criminal administration has been caught in 935 lies, some of which have led to close to 100,000 deaths, is this administration given a free pass by the left when it comes to 9/11? While we don’t agree with labeling the ideas advanced by the 9/11 Truth Movement as conspiracy theories, let us, for the sake of the argument discuss the idea of conspiracy theories involving the Bush Administration. Please also remember, a conspiracy is, by definition, “an agreement to perform together an illegal, wrongful, or subversive act.” Therefore, when the progressive left asserts that the President and his administration knowingly manipulated intelligence in order to lead our nation to war in Iraq, they are advancing what can be defined as a conspiracy theory. Is the left only interested in advancing conspiracy theories that are popular and accepted by the rest of their constituents?

Additionally, the Bush Administration fought very hard to stifle any inquiry into 9/11. If 9/11 was a major government failure, as is maintained by proponents of the official account, then wouldn’t the president and vice president want to know everything about that failure and reprimand or fire those responsible? Instead, we’ve seen two inquiries, one led by the Congress and one by the 9/11 Commission. Both of these inquiries were given limited access to information, and in the case of the 9/11 Commission, led by a White House insider. Even if the official version of events is true, how is this acceptable? Don’t the family members of the victims of 9/11 deserve to have answers as to why their loved ones are no longer with us? Don’t we, as Americans, deserve to know?

In conclusion, we implore the progressive left to support the millions of concerned citizens across the United States who are advocating for an independent inquiry into 9/11. Advocating for a real investigation into 9/11 is not subscribing to conspiracy theories. It’s subscribing to the idea of truth, accountability, and justice. What’s so bad about that? Remember, these people are proven liars, their lies have led to the deaths of thousands of people. Why should 9/11 be treated any differently?

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....

PLEASE SEND AN EMAIL to rgreene@airamerica.com.

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 rgreene@airamerica.com.
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 http://911Blogger.com 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 911Blogger.com to see what's going on. That could open a lot of eyes that would not otherwise be opened.

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: http://www.911blogger.com/node/13321


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.

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

http://georgewashington.blogspot.com/2008/01/military-and-intelligence-o... [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....

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....


[Your Tax Dollars (and super termite?) At Work?]

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.



From 911review.com:


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. http://www.911review.com

"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....
