Hungry For Truth - Day 17 - (Blair's Last Day on Strike.)

Day 17
Day 17 of Blair's hunger strike for 9/11 Truth came and went with dozens of citizens stopping by to give Blair their thanks and appreciation for a selfless act dedicated to the Truth about 9/11. Alex Jones interviewed Blair and Senator Johnson today as well as Mike Rivero of and Jeff Farias from Nova M radio. Blair decided Day 17 would be his last day fasting for truth. His weight has dropped to 124 lbs from a normal of 155 lbs. Given the amount of press coverage, good or bad, generated from his hunger strike, the fantastic speech by Senator Johnson on the floor of the Arizona Senate and the apparent lack of concern by Senator McCain. Blair has decided that 17 days was enough. What better day than the 11th of the month? He has asked the staff of Senator McCain to forward any response from him to Blair's home address. What started out as an individual, sitting in a lawn chair, seeking a response from his elected representative in Washington D.C. ended with a positive response, not from the elected senator and not just from people in Phoenix, but from all over the world. People everywhere are hungry for the truth, and they are tired of being lied to. Email came from all over the country and globe. The people know about 9/11. The spell is wearing off. We may still be a silent majority, but we know. If anything is learned from this, it is the historical fact that one individual can make a difference and a contribution to better their city, their state and their world. Don't let anyone tell you differently. In my opinion Blair Gadsby has solidified that notion and he raised the bar a little in the process.
In the next few days Blair would like to issue a statement and as soon as he is ready we will post his words, and or video, here on 911 Blogger. Many thanks for everyone's support in this effort. Stay Hungry.

A personal thank you to "Charlie and the Human Tornado" of Tucson 9/11 Truth.

Day 17


I couldn't have done what you did... Hat's off to you.


FYI, my dodgy-quality YouTube viddy of Johnson is sitting at 9,600 (now over 11,000 since this morning) hits in just over one day of viewing. I have updated the video with clickable annotations to all of Blair's YouTube videos now, and Kucinich's impeachment articles;

Any webmasters out there who can link up the video, please do.

Higher quality video here:

Thank you Blair...

For your sacrifice. McCain's unwillingness to meet with you further illustrates, at least to me, how intertwined with the system that brought us 9/11 McCain really is. This is not a man that cares about truth, honesty, or accountability. This is a man that represents interests that conflict with everything this country stands for, or is supposed to stand for. Again, thank you Blair for what you have done.

Do these people deserve to know how and why their loved ones were murdered? Do we deserve to know how and why 9/11 happened?

A real landmark !! SUMMER OF TRUTH !!

This was a real landmark on the road to 9/11 TRUTH!
My appreciation and thanks to everyone involved!! This helps to save lives.

If one does not thoroughly LOOK, the TRUTH is not visible.

A braver man than I!

Thank you sir for reminding us of the true face of Satyagraha, and what it can yield if used properly. Truly heroic.

A big thanks

You are an American hero. So is Karen Johnson. My hats off to you both. The real truth will come out. They can't lie about everything forever! Again, thanks for your courage. A long time ago i read a book called 'The miracle of fasting'. I forget the author's name. You may, or nay not want to look it up.

Your efforts were very effective ...

Blair, good decision to bring this to a halt, if you had plan to continue it further I was going to enter a blog and request that you terminate this endeavor, because of the damage to your body. We need you to be alive and healthy. Most people don't know how hot it can be in Phoenix in June in the sun, 105 degrees +.

Even though Mc Cain didn't talk with you, your efforts revealed a callous demeanor for someone who is asking the American people to place him in office. To that end you are very very effective.


New Gang of 14 won’t back McCain
By Kristen Coulter and Bob Cusack

Posted: 06/11/08 07:48 PM [ET]
At least 14 Republican members of Congress have refused to endorse or publicly support Sen. John McCain for president, and more than a dozen others declined to answer whether they back the Arizona senator.

Thanks Blair

Awesome courageous job! Your brave actions have brought us closer to the truth and justice we demand.

Truth Will Prevail

Now go get that Harvey's burger

you deserve it!!! (although seriously, you might want to start with a yogurt or some jello)

Thanks Blair.

Thank you Blair. You have done a beautiful thing.

Do not go gentle into that good night.
Rage, rage against the dying of the light.

Karen Johnson - June 11th interview on the Alex Jones Show

Thursday June 12, 2008
Alex Jones talks with Arizona Senator Karen Johnson about Day 17 of Blair's hunger strike for 9/11 Truth.

(date displayed is the date the audio was posted)

Thanks Blair. I'm greatly

Thanks Blair. I'm greatly relieved you're calling a halt on it now. Your strength of spirit is truly inspiring and I wish a speedy return to your physical strength.

thanks, Blair! (Mass hunger strike for 9/11 Truth, next?)

there's no way McCain didn't hear about this; someone in the US purposely going without food for 17 days, sustained by their conviction- i think you did the right thing to break this off- the message was sent (and McCain's opinion isn't worth starving for, ihmo)

There's a powerful lesson in this- it got the local media attention- at some point, depending on how bad things get, an international mass hunger strike might be a powerful thing to organize

I've gone 7 days w/o food, only water & herbal tea, just to see what would happen and for detoxing; it's tough- you get used to it, but you get weaker all the time. Hardcore Muslims fast for a month during Ramadan, i think- Bobby Sands went 66 days before dying

Thin man hungers for meaty answers

Thin man hungers for meaty answers

The Arizona Republic
Jun. 12, 2008 12:00 AM
The thin man who has been starving himself outside the Phoenix office of U.S. Sen. John McCain bugs us.

You can tell by some of the things people shout as they pass in cars on 16th Street. You can tell by some of the remarks left online about the article about the man earlier this week by The Republic's Richard Ruelas.

The idea of this now-skinny guy sitting on a lawn chair in the shade just south of Missouri Avenue gets on our nerves.

And it is not only because this particular man believes that the U.S. government was complicit or perhaps even responsible for the attacks on the World Trade Center on Sept. 11, 2001.

It's more than that.

Reasonable people can question 45-year-old Blair Gadsby's judgment. We can question his objectivity. We can even question his sanity. What we cannot question, however, is his commitment.

And that bugs us.

After all, here is a man who, until he stopped eating and started parking himself outside on office building on a busy street, appeared for all the world to be perfectly normal. He's intelligent and articulate. He teaches at a community college. He's married.

But, for over two weeks, he sat in 100-degree heat holding up a sign about 9/11 conspiracies and not eating.

I stopped by to see him on Tuesday after he had been to the state Capitol as a guest of state Sen. Karen Johnson, who has her own doubts about what happened on 9/11.

"It was very discouraging to be up in the balcony (at the Capitol) and to see people rolling their eyes and scoffing at what we represent," Gadsby told me.

I told Gadsby that it isn't just his conspiracy theories that cause people to roll their eyes. It is the fact that he is willing to put everything on the line for something he believes in.

Those of us who never would do such a thing - meaning, most of us - need to believe that Gadsby is crazy.

It allows us to hide our self-doubt in ridicule.

"We'll accept that the leaders of Sudan will do terrible things to their own people and that Saddam (in Iraq) would do terrible things to his people," Gadsby said. "Why wouldn't there be a few rotten apples among our people who would do such things?"

On Wednesday afternoon, some of the people in what Gadsby calls the "movement" were scheduled to gather with him. It was the 11th of the month, a day of protest for 9/11 conspiracy believers. It also was the day that Gadsby said he expected to end his fast.

McCain's office promised to respond to some of his questions, and he felt that his hunger strike had raised public awareness. Still, he wonders why the media is dismissive of the questions he asks. For instance, he said, why put quotations around the word truth in the headline of The Republic's first article about him. It read: "Hungry for 'truth' about 9/11."

The quotations send a subtle message that he isn't seeking the real truth, he said, adding, "I understand the literary technique."

Maybe. But while we dismiss him for his beliefs, we also dismiss him for his dedication.

The thin man sitting outside the office of a U.S. senator isn't simply raising questions about 9/11, he's raising a question about us.

By fasting for all those days in public he is, by example, asking this question : For what cause or belief would you go hungry, risk your livelihood, your health, your reputation?

What bugs us and causes many of us to treat someone like Gadsby with disdain is that we have no good answer to that question.

Some Really good comments

at the AZ Republic.

Expect some serious damage to the Republic in the mths ahead and early 2009 once Obama is positioned.

I see conflict escalation with Pakistan, Russia, Iran etc as the GrandChessboard "strategist" puts his Puppetdenial candidate into position.

Now the international forces behind the "Federal" Reserve are going to go for broke.

So it is going to be up to the States.

The individual local govts.

Will there be more Legislators like Karen Johnson?

More Gadsby's?

Will individual State Govts say no the the "Federal" Tyranny?

Change that we can see.

Real Change.

What the Truth Movement does in the next 12-24 mths is going to be far far more important than what has happened in the last 60-70mths.

They are going for broke.

So should we.

The CONSTITUTION is NOT going to "collapse" into pulverized dust no matter how much thermate/explosives or planes they throw at it

Thank you once again Blair.

Thank you once again Blair. The last two weeks have been very inspiring and you accomplished so much.

Talk about being the change you want to see.......

Send a fax to John McCain...

...expressing your disgust. All the information necessary for sending a free fax over the internet and sample letter to Senator McCain are available at:

"Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed. Whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government." -The Declaration of Independence

Thank you Blair

You truly are the man now, dog! The truth is emerging...thank you for your effort in getting McLame to talk to you about the facts of 9/11. He is obviously a little more concerned with advancing his career than advancing evidence to the contrary of the OCT of 9/11 to the misled public. Oh well...we will continue to break down the walls ourselves! We don't need fake, dodgy, aging politicians to speak the Truth, for it speaks for itself. Again, thanks, our thoughts are with you here in Vermont!

Violence can only be concealed by a lie, and the lie can only be maintained by violence.

Thank you, Blair.

I thank and respect you for taking a stand as you did. Get some rest and re-fuel gradually. Please, know your efforts have been appreciated more than you have heard on this website and/or others!


Blair, some followed this

Blair, some followed this closely in Canada and shared your story to our local media, your a brave man and we honor your courage and commitment for 911 truth ..thank you! friends in Canada

I'm so relieved this is over

I really didn't want Blair to do serious physical damage, because I think he has a promising future in this movement.

Thank you, Blair

for the example of this noble act. Your decency and humanity never failed you. Your love even for McCain is a humbling lesson in Satyagraha.

More colors more handwritten signs

More colors of signs, more colors of people...more unique messaging...more unique "lines in the sand".

How could anybody not be anything but deeply proud that we are part of them...and that they are part of us?

Thanks Arizona!

Love, Peace and Progress with:

PS: YAY Chandler!!!

A question for McCain

How can a man who was elected to be our public servant, to speak for the people, so consiously refuse his duties? This was just one man. Clearly he wasn't a threat. He waited for 17 days seriously risking his health for something important. Is McCain serving the people? Or something else? Would be great to hear his answer on this.
