Greens Nominate McKinney for President

July 12, 9:10 PM, Chicago, IL

The Green Party of the United States today nominated truth activist and seasoned politician Cynthia McKinney for U.S. President. In her 12 years in Congress, McKinney distinguished herself for questioning Donald Rumsfeld under oath about missing trillions at the Pentagon. She introduced articles of impeachment and asked questions about the 9/11 attacks, in 2002, when such skepticism was not tolerated from public figures.

McKinney's story includes many accomplishments as a legislator. She has been the conscience for a misguided nation. But the other half of her story is not what she has done, but what has been done to her. She took the blows of fierce reaction when the political establishment and corporate centrist media attacked her for violating the taboo that demanded silence about 9/11. In 2002, GOP strategists used a special "crossover" strategy to get their voters to vote in the Democratic primary for a fake Democrat substitute for McKinney. She came back in 2004. After introducing articles of impeachment and holding congressional hearings into 9/11, Capitol Police pretended not to recognize her, which sparked a confrontation with a frustrated McKinney. The media claimed she punched a cop. McKinney lost re-election in 2006.

So it was a comeback of another kind today. Greens all over the convention today were fond of quoting Jesse Jackson who said "the Democratic Party is where progressive politics go to die." In her speech today, McKinney spoke of annually swearing to herself that all the maiming, and bombing of children, and killing of peoples that our government does, is not done in her name. Recently, she decided to make that statement more real.

350 Green delegates from as far away as Hawaii, Montana, and Rhode Island voted today for a choice of four candidates plus a few stray votes for Nader, the ghost in the machine. McKinney was the clear winner. It was a landslide. It was politics at a whole new level. After seven years of struggling to dig up the truth on 9/11, how refreshing is it to hear the biggest third party have a champion asking "what did they know and when did they know it?" in her acceptance speech. This is not a cottage industry of idle speculation. 9/11 is now a national political issue. So is Katrina. So is Pentagon accountability. So is impeachment.

But really the issue for me is McKinney herself. We are lucky in the Green Party that she has come to us. Our first star. Our first media-rich, well-known, well-loved and much-hated, loaded, messianic, prophetic, truth-telling figure. Obama seems wispy when you imagine them side by side for any reason. McKinney has a gravitas. A serious mass to her passion for TRUTH. Truth is in some ways her strongest campaign slogan. It was one of the signs hoisted aloft today as she won. Black background, big white letters, with the campaign logo below. Truth. A people living in darkness have seen a great light. Truth. The movement for truth has been given a candidate. This is the moment I came for.

Thank you Cynthia !

You're one hell of a good woman, and you do America proud !

Show "Cynthia does NOT do america proud" by brianct

Give credit where it's due

........ It takes a huge set of balls to stand up to this corrupt system, and tell it like it is. Her grilling Rummy on
the missing 2.3 trillion dollars made me want to shake her hand.
Yes it's a shame their are very few honest politicians. Standing up in the face of adversity defines ones character. What has been done to her by the press, and our corrupt government doesn't change the fact.

Cynthia is one of a kind, unfortunately

Cynthia is that rare beast: a politician of integrity. Compared to her, most of the rest of politicians in the US and abroad come across as psychopathic schemers. Will she ever be president? Unlikely. But supporting her is a matter of conscience.

Go Cynthia!

The only politician I can think of whom I actually respect. Maybe this guy too:

Cynthia has an appeal which stands above most.

Joe sponsored the Dallas Theatre showing of LOOSE CHANGE FINAL CUT last month where more than 250 people turned out.
Following the movie, I spoke to several middle-aged women who had never before seen the film. Get this: These women, who I was informally surveying, were most impacted and impressed by "the lady in the film who...." I went on to explain that the lady was Cynthia McKinney, etc. and that there was even more dramatic film footage of her in action.

My point: By survey, Cynthia has an appeal to women voters if they can only see her in action. She gives an impressive, lasting impact.

Outstanding good news

This makes me so happy, Cynthia has BALLS, has integrity, has passion, and is very intelligent, with people, and with words. Can't wait to hear her in presidential debates!

I wonder how they will try to push her down, we should push her candiancy STRONGLY right now, spread her videos and information BEFORE they start hammering her down in the media please!

GO Cynthia!
Much love from Spain - The world needs you!!

Well, maybe wisdom meant

she represents best what America should stand for?

Wow, this is big

Many on the "left" or in the anti-war movement usually get behind the green candidate. If Cynthia is the green candidate, we've made a huge bridge to these groups. I still can't quite believe it and looking forward to seeing how this progresses. Obviously I doubt she has a chance to win but this could be a great campaign to educate the masses where the result could be just as big.

This is extremely encouraging! Cynthia has been through a lot,

yet she continues to push ahead! She is a most tenacious patriot!

Consider mass emailing truth messages. More info here:

People don't vote their conscience.

If everyone who doubts the official conspiracy theory voted for Cynthia, she should win by a landslide.
But most people will vote for most accomplished liar with the most empty promises and vague threats.
That is the state of "Democracy" today.
We can all hope and pray and support her in every possible way.

How stupid do they think we are?


Ms. McKinney!

I hope she has loads of money for proper security

The enemy is probably not going to allow her to raise sensitive questions in important debates. They must know she is not easily ridiculed. I fear her life is now very much in danger.

We now have a real Truth Canidate!!!!!!

9/11 Truth has just officially entered the Presidential campaign.

In light of McCain's Pop Mechanics Intro and history with PNAC parent group; Obama putting two 9/11 commissioners on his advisory staff; and now Cynthia McKinney as Green canidate.......... 9/11 Truth will be hard to avoid this campaign season!!!!!!!!

This is a historic opportunity!
Radical Pragmatist

Good deal

Now at least I will be able to vote. With Obama on Mc Caine running I was going to stay home on election day. I hope she gets to take part in the debates but I doubt if they will let her.

Just thiught of something funny.

If Cynthia did win the presidency she would be the first woman president and the first black president. I'll bet that would make the red necks shudder. I would love it!!!

Ron Paul bumper-sticker: OFF

Cynthia McKinney for President: ON. When I started my 9/11 research in 2004, I still bought in to the left / right dog and pony show, believing that John Kerry would straighten things out. I know better now and will let my conscious be my guide. May Truth prevail!

If you're not outraged, you're not paying attention.

Same for me...

Randy. Although I left my Kucinich bumper sticker on because of his recent surge towards Impeachment!!

I saw Cynthia's acceptance speech yesterday, it was awesome!

Say RWF2

Could you please leave a link to her acceptance speech. Thanks..........Maddog

I'm trying..

Sorry, but as much as I like Ms. McKinney, I would never, ever

discount someone like Dr. Ron Paul.

How about ?

Cynthia for pres. Ventura vice pres ? Hell Kucinich for sec of defense...........Yeah right. Well i can wish can't i?


Cynthia. As I told you in correspondence, you are to me, what Dr. Martin Luther King is to you. Thank you for everything you have done for us over the years. Your involvement from Washington D.C. helped to motivate many of us. Thank you.

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?

You go Cynthia

I'll probably vote for her just to keep from feeling sick these next 4 years.

Obama will probably draft your kids and set up new AmeriYouth (Hitler youth?) programs left and right to indoctrinate the next generation.

McCain will probably nuke half the planet.

Not feeling hopeful.

Congratulations Cynthia !

When the student is ready the teacher will come.

I will not give the power of my vote to the Republican Party or the Democratic Party. They failed us when it comes to standing up for truth. I 'm very proud to say the power of my vote is going to a TRUTH candidate. Cynthia McKinney For President. Take Care Matt

President McKinney, Speaker of the House Kucinich...

Think of this...
Prez McKinney, Speaker of the House Kucinich, President of the Senate Sanders, Secretary of State Ventura, Head of NIST Dr Jones, Amassador to the UN McGovern....Now this this something to work for and would make the Founding Fathers proud. Do service to the spirit of representitive Democracy and all the people who gave their lives to protect the Union and establish the Constitution as the the formost document on the Right of Man!!!

Great to see a real truth candidate for once.

Great to see a legitimate truth candidate for once.

Politics today is a game practiced by self-interested con-men with only a few exceptions.
Arabesque: 911 Truth

Mckinney For President !

Let's start talking her up right now! The election isn't until November, Call our Newpapers, Get her some press. Sometime ago a McSane supporter asked me if I was going to support a women (hillary) or a black man (Obama). I said Mckinney, she's both a woman and a black and she's the real deal! Of course he had no idea what I was talking about he usually doesn't. He's too afraid to Goggle WTC 7. There is hope for him though he does like Jesse Ventura. I told him it's only a matter of time before they come to take his gun away from him, then he'll wake up.

Her acceptance speech was

Her acceptance speech was moving and powerful. Cynthia did throw a mention in about re-looking at the 911 issue.She kept saying Greens needed 5% of the vote to qualify as a national party with rights as the other two.
Let's give that to the Greens.
