Hopefully audio will soon be posted from the 911truth.org Q & A with Rep. Kucinich. In the meantime, here is what was asked, in the limited time that was alotted. (Originally Kucinich was supposed to be available for an hour, but because he just introduced another article of impeachment, he was a popular guy, and I believe he gave up about 20 minutes for the Q & A. His latest impeachment article is on the front page of C-SPAN if you want to see it.)

1. There are millions of Americans working to reclaim their government. Whether the issue is impeachment, voter fraud, a new 9/11 investigation, or ending and preventing wars, the American people seem to have no voice in their own government. They have protested, educated, presented an impeachment petition with more than 1 million signatures from a former attorney general. Numerous polls show all time low support for Congress, the President and the direction the country is going. Given these facts, we have 2 questions:
What prevents members of Congress from taking the action they know is necessary and demanded by the people? For example, why are there only have 7 co-sponsors on your impeachment bill when we know more representatives than that actually support it?

What is the single, most powerful strategy to reclaim our government?

(Grassroots activism was a key part of the answer here, during the call, listeners were encouraged to check out a few resources at the beginning and the end of the call;

2. Representative Kucinich, you told Student Scholars for 911 truth and stated in radio interviews that: "because you can you will hold hearings to examine the insider trading and financial market anomalies connected to the attacks." You told Justin of Student Scholars that you would have announcement about the hearings last September.

Since you stated you would hold these hearings more than a year and a half ago, what prevents you from holding these hearings? Additionally, would you include hearings regarding the missing $2.3 trillion dollars from the Pentagon announced by Rumsfeld?

(Kucinich is still looking at this issue and does want to hold hearings. He is, however, limited by the size of his staff and budget. He said that a hearing will happen before the end of this Congress. That gives him until the first week of January, 2009.

Here is one of the most important and accurate papers on insider trading preceding 9/11;
"Unusual Option Market Activity and the Terrorist Attacks of September 11, 2001" (Abstract. Full Paper PDF.)
by Allen Poteshman of the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. His paper is endorsed and referenced in "The Hidden History of 9-11", by Paul Zarembka, Professor Economics at SUNY, Buffalo.

3. There are many questions about 9/11 that could have been answered long ago if the 9/11 Commission had proceeded in a more open manner. The Commission turned over its records to the National Archives where they remain under a "general restriction from public access on these records until 2009". (1) The National Archives website states that these materials are free from FOIA requests, "Because the Commission was part of the legislative branch". (1)

My question is;

Will your office write a Bill or Resolution that will make the public release of these records lawfully binding? It should be crafted to include a message to all government agencies to collaborate with, and aid, the Archives in its work. It should also include text that will release physical evidence for public examination, so that the public can weigh the value of any proofs that the Commission used to draw their conclusions. (This would include all Pentagon surveillance videos depicting the attack on the Pentagon; all surveillance video that depicts the alleged hijackers boarding the aircraft that were used as missiles on 9/11; access to the debris from United 93 currently stored at the Iron Mountain facility in Boyers, Pennsylvania; and, access to the steel recovered from the World Trade Center, currently stored in Hangar 17 at the JFK airport in NY.)

9/11, Deep State Violence and the Hope of Internet Politics by Peter Dale Scott

(Here, Kucinich had specific procedural recommendations for the Commission papers that need to be considered carefully. A review of the audio is necessary here. Generally, he is supportive of this effort, and openness in Government. Kucinich could be a real ally here in a true investigation. There needs to be some follow-up here, just like with the insider trading questions. He realizes that there are a ton of questions that people have about 9/11, and doesn't seem afraid to hear the questions, and help look for answers/solutions.)

4. On 9/11, Continuity of Government procedures were implemented. Are we still operating under COG? Is this the reason why Congress cannot do anything, because they literally have no power? Even the Committee on Homeland Security, which has proper clearance, has been denied access to the detailed documents. Has Congress been prohibited, legally, from talking about COG? The American people deserve to know what structure of government we're living under, and we appreciate you clarifying this for us. Congress clearly has no oversight over secret operations of the Executive Branch. What do the American People need to do to restore co-equal branches of government, given this scenario?

(Kucinich stated that the Congress still has the ability to exercise power, the 9/11 COG has not curtailed it, and that the Congress is stonewalled when they seek information about COG. He recommended that people push their Representatives to get the answers about COG, with enough pressure, we could find out more.

5. We get contacted by whistle blowers on a regular basis with information pertaining to 9/11. For example, we are aware of a military intelligence officer who is sitting in prison, at this moment, in Georgia, who has no habeas corpus rights. He is in effect, a political prisoner. Without a criminal investigation into 9/11, who can these whistle blowers turn to with their information? There are no organizations willing to help them, or this person specifically. They have told us they do not have attorneys willing to take on the government or help with these cases as they are afraid of repercussions. The whistle blowers' lives are on the line. What can you do to help them?

(Here Kucinich made it known that his office is open to Government whistleblowers.)


To everyone that participated.

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?

kucinich was my first choice for president. He is for real.

Great interview/conference call.

It is so refreshing to hear a significant member of the US government give straight answers.

Great job. Thanks to all the questioners.

I am encouraged by this interview.

Dennis Kucinich gives me hope.

If we succeed

and I think it's more a question of "when" than "if", then I suspect Kucinich will be our president in 2012. Both Ron Paul and Mike Gravel are getting older and may not run, though I hope that they, along with Cynthia McKinney, have a big role in the next administration.

Great Questions

Excellent series of questions.

So why is it that our "press" in this country on TV can not ask questions like these??



the press is nothing more than a tool of the NWO boys. They are as complicit in the crimes of 9/11 as Bush, Cheney and the rest of the thugs. If we had a real media, problem, reaction, solution would never work. 9/11 would have been solved the day it happened. We truthers are the new media. Thank God for the internet. Without it we would have no chance. Because of the internet eventually we will win this thing. Keep on trucki'n guys and girls. There are people out there we need to wake up. It's our duty as real Americans. As far as impeachment goes, I hope I am wrong but I do not see much hope in it happening, grass roots or no grass roots. Congress is gutless and Peloci is another NWO tool. Kucinich is a good man and I wish him all the luck In the world but I am sorry to say impeachment won't happen............... (Perhaps if Bush got a BJ from Peloci)

Awesome questions !

Thanks Rep.......Great post ! And thanks Mr. Kucinich. You do the people of this country proud.

Wow, did you hear what Kucinich said about COG?

Kucinich admits that Congress is stonewalled and unaware of the rules put into effect by COG (Continuity of Government). This is an absolutely amazing admission! Everyone needs to listen for themselves!

I'm floored!

#4 --- by far--the most important issue!!!

Janice Matthews asked the pointed question on COG and hats off to her!!

"Kucinich stated that the Congress still has the ability to exercise power, the 9/11 COG has not curtailed it, and that the Congress is stonewalled when they seek information about COG. He recommended that people push their Representatives to get the answers about COG, with enough pressure, we could find out more."

How can Kucinich be certain they still possess an ability to exercise power? I'm not so confident and it certainly smells how ineffectual Congress has been since the 2006 election!

Great Links! I'll definitely be reading the Ketcham article! Thanks.

...don't believe them!
