Cynthia McKinney on CNN via YouTube - Speaks about USS Liberty

Jonathan Mark also sent in this link


My President for ya.

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?

An inspiration

It's the rare people like Cynthia McKinney, not the mainstream politicians who retain the dignity of the original framers of the constitution and make America a place to admire. She is an inspiration to patriots everywhere.
BTW Props to CNN for airing this snippet of truth (although we surely won't see it again.)

Cynthia got my vote of 144,000 nation-wide, if one believes the final tally (which I don't, necessarily, given our recent past elections).

Courageous lady.

From Loss of Liberty to Attack on Dignity

Loss of Liberty 51 min

'Loss of Liberty' dramatically proves, beyond any doubt, that the attack by Israel on June 8, 1967 against the US naval intelligence gathering ship USS Liberty, in which 34 Americans were killed and 171 wounded, was deliberate. The video first lets Israeli officers make their totally unconvincing case that the attack was a 'tragic accident' when the Israelis mistook the much larger and differently configured USS Liberty for the totally unlike Egyptian ship El Quseir. This filmed testimony by dozens of USS Liberty survivors demolishes Israel’s 'tragic accident' claim. Former Secretary of State Dean Rusk and former chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Admiral Thomas Moorer are representative of the honored high-ranking Americans supporting the condemnation of deliberate aggression against the United States by 'ally' Israel. 'Loss of Liberty' makes clear that then-President Lyndon Johnson conspired with Israel and its Israel-First supporters inside the US government to support the 'tragic accident' scheme. Johnson was bogged down at the time in the Vietnam war, and thought he needed Israel Lobby support. Still, Johnson’s behaviour is as unforgivable now as it was then.

Dead in the Water 1 Hr 8 min

DEAD IN THE WATER: During the Six-Day War, Israel attacked and nearly sank the USS Liberty belonging to its closest ally, the USA. Thirty-four American servicemen were killed in the two-hour assault by Israeli warplanes and torpedo boats. Israel claimed that the whole affair had been a tragic accident based on mistaken identification of the ship. The American government accepted the explanation. For more than 30 years many people have disbelieved the official explanation but have been unable to rebut it convincingly. Now, Dead in the Water uses startling new evidence to reveal the truth behind the seemingly inexplicable attack. The film combines dramatic reconstruction of the events, with new access to former officers in the US and Israeli armed forces and intelligence services who have decided to give their own version of events. Interviews include President Lyndon Johnson's Secretary of Defence Robert McNamara, former head of the Israeli navy Admiral Shlomo Errell and members of the USS Liberty crew.


Cynthia McKinney was much more articulate, interesting and informative than the smirking American media demon.

What an amazing person Cynthia McKinney is!

She spoke with such strength and clarity. She was brilliant in the midst of chaos. She put her life on the line to draw attention to this travesty in Gaza and to offer help to the wounded. The Israelis said those onboard were terrorists and rammed their defenseless vessel, not once, but 3 times. It was sheer luck that this boat didn't sink. It was just luck that no one was seriously injured or killed. Clearly, when you ram a boat with yours, you intend to endanger the lives of those on the receiving end of your attack.

It was so perfect that Cynthia had the clarity of mind to bring up the USS Liberty incident.

I agree with you Phaedrus. What an inspiration.

Thank You Cynthia!

USS Liberty

James Bamford in his book, Body of Secrets, devotes an entire chapter to the USS Liberty incident. He also wrote about it here:



Gazan Fishermen Used As Target Practice By Israel

Tax dollars.

American tax dollars at work. (The warship with the water cannon.)

I was mentioning to a friend today about the number of dual citizens in influential positions in American government.

I googled and found this.......

Michael Chertoff, Ricard Perle, Paul Wolfowitz, Larry Franklin, Douglas Feith, Edward Luttwak, Henry Kissinger, Dov Zakheim, Kenneth Adelman, “Scooter” Libby, Robert Satloff, Elliott Abrams, Marc Grossman, Richard Haass, Robert Zoellick, Ari Fleischer, James Schlesinger, David Frum, Joshua Bolten, John Bolton, David Wurmser, Eliot Cohen, Mel Sembler, Steve Goldsmith, Adam Goldman, Joseph Gildenhorn, Christopher Gersten, Mark Weinberger, Samuel Bodman, Bonnie Cohen, Ruth Davis, Daniel Kurtzer, Cliff Sobel, Stuart Bernstein, Nancy Brinker, Frank Lavin, Ron Weiser, Mel Sembler, Marting Silverstein, Lincoln Bloomfield, Jay Lefkowitz, Ken Melman, and Brad Blakeman.

Then found this..........

Israel allows no dual citizens in its government.
Why does America?


16. If the speaker of the Knesset has called upon its members to make their declarations of allegiance and a member has not done so, that member shall not enjoy the rights of membership as long as he has not made the declaration.


Non-declaration due to dual-citizenship (Amendment 22)

If a Knesset member holds an additional, non-Israeli citizenship, and the laws of the country whose citizenship he holds permit him to be released from such citizenship, he shall not declare allegiance until after he has done everything required on his part to be released from such citizenship, and he shall not enjoy the rights of a Knesset member until he makes his declaration.

Cynthia speaks with the force of undeniable truth

Right now the evil of this world is almost more than I can take. What is wrong with this planet? What is wrong with humanity? It seems we live in an ever tightening web of cruelty and lies.

At times like this it helps so much to know that there is one brave woman willing to speak the truth and even endanger herself to help those in Gaza.

Thank you Cynthia.

There is Nothing Wrong with the Planet

that Cannot be Fixed by what's RIGHT with the Planet.

For Every Traitor there is a Truther.

Cynthia McKinney in one good example.

There is still much Hope for Humanity.

Keep your chin up.

Happy New Year and God Bless.

Gaza Attacks-Six Months in the Planning

Ralph Shoenman of Global Research Audio:
Operation "Cast Lead": Israeli Air Force strike followed months of planning
by Barak Ravid

Global Research, December 28, 2008

Global Research Editor's Note:

While the Western media remains silent and complicit, the Israeli Press (Haaretz) reveals the unspoken truth: the careful planning of a military operation entitled "Cast Lead" coupled with a media disinformation and diplomatic campaign. What we are witnessing is genocide. Let us be under no illusiions, this operation was implemented with the knowledge and approval of Israeli's allies.

Cynthia McKinney....December 30, 2008: Oh What a Day!
I'm so glad that my father told me to buy a special notebook and to write everything down because that's exactly what I did.

When we left from Cyprus, one reporter asked me "are you afraid?" And I had to respond that Malcolm X wasn't afraid; Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. wasn't afraid. But little did I know that just a few hours later, I would be recollecting my life and mentally preparing myself for death.

When we left Cyprus, the Mediterranean was beautiful. I remember the time when it might have been beautiful to look at, but it was also filthy. The Europeans have taken great strides to clean it up and yesterday, it was beautiful. And the way the sunlight hit the sea, I remember thinking to myself that's why they call it azure. It was the most beautiful blue.

But sometimes it was rough, and we got behind on our schedule. We stayed on course, however, despite the roughness of the water and due to our exquisite captain.

There were no other ships or boats around us and night descended upon us all rather quickly. It was the darkest black and suddenly, out of nowhere, came searchlights disturbing our peace. The searchlights stayed with us for about half an hour or so. We knew they were Israeli ships. Who else would they be?

They were fast, and they would come close and then drop back. And then, they'd come close again. And then, all of a sudden there was complete blackness once again and all seemed right. The cat and mouse game went on for at least one half hour. What were they doing? And why?

Calm again. Black sky, black sea. Peace. And then, at that very moment, when all seemed right, out of nowhere we were rammed and rammed again and rammed again the last one throwing me off the couch, sending all our food up in the air; and all the plastic bags and tubs--evidence of sea sicknesses among the crew and passengers-- flew all over the cabin and all over us. We'd been rammed by the Israelis. How did we know? Because they called us on the phone afterwards to tell us that we were engaging in subversive, terroristic activity. And if that if we didn't turn around right then and return to Larnaca, Cyprus, we would be fired upon. We quickly grabbed our lifevests and put them on. Then the captain announced that the boat was taking on water. We might have to evacuate. One of my mates told me to prepare to die. And I reflected that I have lived a good and full life. I have tasted freedom and know what it is. I was right with
myself and my decision to join the Free Gaza movement.

I remembered my father's parting words, "You all will be sitting ducks." Just like the U.S.S. Liberty. We were engaged in peaceful activity, a harmless pleasure boat, carrying a load of hospital supplies for the people of Gaza, who, too are sitting ducks, currently being bombarded in aerial assault by the Israeli military.

It's been a long day for us. The captain was outstanding. Throughout it all, he remained stoic and calm, effective in every way. I didn't know how to put my life jacket on. One of the passengers kindly assisted me. Another of the passengers pointed out that the Israeli motors for those huge, fast boats was U.S. made--a gift to them from the U.S. And now they were using those motors to damage a pleasure boat outfitted with three tons of hospital supplies, one pediatrician, and two surgeons.

I have called for President-elect Obama to say something. The Palestinian people in the Gaza strip are seeing the worst violence in 60 years, it is being reported. To date, President-elect Obama has remained silent. The Israelis are using weapons supplied to them by the U.S. government. Strict enforcement of U.S. law would require the cessation of all weapons transfers to Israel. Adherence to international law would require the same. As we are about to celebrate Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.'s birthday, let us remember that he said:

1. The United States is the greatest purveyor of violence in the world, and
2. Our lives begin to end the day we remain silent about things that matter.

I implore the President-elect to not send Congress a budget that contains more weapons for Israel. We have so much more to offer. And I implore the Congress to vote "no" on any budget and appropriation bills that provide more weapons transfers, period.

Israel is able to carry out these intense military maneuvers because taxpayers in the U.S. give their hard-earned money to our Representatives in Congress and our Congress chooses to spend that money in this way. Let's stop it and stop it now. There's been too much blood shed. And while we still walk among the living, let us not remain silent about the things that matter.

We really can promote peace and have it if we demand it of our leaders.

The shock, awe and heart attacks that followed Madoff's confession that he was 'running a Ponzi scheme' drew as much anger for the money lost and the fall from the moneyed class as for the embarrassment of knowing that the world's biggest exploiters and smartest swindlers on Wall Street, were completely 'taken' by one of their own. Not only did they suffer big losses but their self-image of themselves as rich because they are so smart and of 'superior stock' was utterly shattered: They saw themselves as suffering the same fate as all the schmucks they had previously swindled, exploited and dispossessed in their climb to the top. There is nothing worse for the ego of a respectable swindler than to be trumped by a bigger swindler. As a result, a number of the biggest losers have so far refused to give their names or the amount they lost, working instead through lawyers fighting off other losers.
--James Petras

"And advanced forms of biological warfare that can 'target' specific genotypes may transform biological warfare from the realm of terror to a politically useful tool."
--PNAC, Rebuilding America's Defenses, p. 60

The argument that the two parties should represent opposed ideals and policies, one, perhaps, of the Right and the other of the Left, is a foolish idea acceptable only to doctrinaire and academic thinkers. Instead, the two parties should be almost identical, so that the American people can "throw the rascals out" at any election without leading to any profound or extensive shifts in policy.
--Carroll Quigley, Tragedy and Hope: A History of the World in our Time

Assination attempt on Cynthia

I just spotted this article. I don't know how true it is but I tend to believe it. Check it out and see for yourselves.;article=122285;show...


This appears to be an anti-Semitic outlet.
And the article is just a different slant on the ramming of the boat.
Call it an assassination attempt or an attempt to disrupt aid for Palestinians, it's all the same story.

What a woman!

I LOVE her.


I can see why they would want to shut her mouth.... That was amazing!

I can not remember the last time I saw someone present like that.
Together in Truth!

the second video

classic! ... straight from an Israeli ship ramming an innocent ship and it almost sinking.... to.... The evil Hamas

is anyone paying attention???
