Fox News Channel’s chief political correspondent Carl Cameron shared his thoughts on a variety of issues including the attacks of 9/11/2001 with We Are Change Minnesota on September 14th, 2009 in the U.S. Senate office building. . Citing warnings by numerous foreign intelligence agencies, pre-9/11 warnings from Arizona FBI agent Kenneth Williams and stating quite plainly that, “It’s really hard to make the case that the buildings just imploded without some sort of an accelerant,” Cameron said we’re, “right to bang the drum because we don’t know,” what really transpired on 9/11 and that, “The unanswered questions are reasons to be skeptical.“ he also states "There are bad guys in the government. Black Ops and stuff does happen.“

Dear Some of The Above News

CODEPINK has never flagged in opposing the Afghanistan war and now public opinion is finally catching up. With 70 percent of Democrats opposing U.S. troops in Afghanistan, President Obama is making a fateful choice. If he escalates, the quagmire deepens and he loses more support among his base. If he refuses to send more troops he will be attacked by the Republicans for losing the war on terror.

CODEPINK and the peace movement are calling for an exit strategy that includes NATO/American troop withdrawal, all party talks, regional diplomacy, and continued aid for reconstruction, medical care, education and development, but your voice is not represented in Congress. But we have a proven ability to set off a storm in their districts that makes a difference. We affected the election outcomes in 2006 and 2008, and we must continue to raise hell until they listen and act.

Please read, sign and circulate this petition.

Double your numbers. Widen your support. Become the margin of difference. Bring down the Predators. Bring home the troops.

--Tom Hayden

Our friend Tom Hayden has been an important voice for peace for decades. CODEPINK and other activists around the world are joining with Tom now to use our collective voice and power to end war in Afghanistan. As this fantastic article in the New York Times states, the tides are turning in our favor - this fall, the antiwar movement is rallying in solidarity to challenge Obama's misguided policies on Afghanistan.

Join the call and sign here--we will deliver your message to Obama, Pelosi & Reid next week!

Tomorrow marks the 8th anniversary of the tragic events of 9/11 and it's
taken until now for the mainstream media to begin, finally, to expose some of the true costs of war. They did so recently by printing a photo of a dead US soldier against powerful pressure. Additionally, writers and
thinkers as politically diverse as George Will and Chuck Hagel have
published thoughtful pieces in the Washington Post on why we need to leave Afghanistan. But it's not enough yet and we can make the media do an even better job.

Stay tuned for our upcoming Activist Media Blitz. During the week of Sept 14-18, we'll push the story of the crucial importance of ending military engagement in Afghanistan and we will provide you with the tools you¹ll needto be engaged from your phone, computer, freeway over pass, the blogosphere, radio talk shows, letters to editors and more. Please join us to speak up and speak out in unison--lend your voices to the true story so it can be heard loud and clear above the din.

Let's take Tom's advice and raise hell (for peace)!

New Entitlement Program


{Excerpts from the new biography, TRAITOR TO HIS CLASS The Privileged Life and Radical Presidency of Franklin Delano Roosevelt, by H.W. Brands:}


As he [FDR] hit his stride he hammered at what had become the central, if unacknowledged, theme of the [1928] Republican presidential campaign. "I have just come from the South," he told an audience at Binghamton, which had experienced a rash of Klan activity. "I have seen circulars down there in the Southern states that any man or woman in this audience would be ashamed to have in his home. I have seen circulars that were so unfit for publication that the people who wrote and printed and paid for them ought not to be put in jail, but ought to be put on the first boat and sent away from the United States." Roosevelt tried to shame New York's bigots into better behavior by associating them with their more virulent southern cousins. He told a tale from Dixie:

"Just after I got down to Georgia, an old friend of mine in a small country town, a farmer, came in to see me, and said, 'Mr. Roosevelt, I am worried. A lot of my neighbors, all Democrats - we are all Democrats down here - say that they cannot vote for Governor Smith, and I don't know what the reason is. But there must be some good answer. Will you tell me so I can go back and talk to them? They tell me, these neighbors of mine, and they show me printed handbills saying that if [Catholic] Governor Smith becomes president of the United States, the Methodist and Baptist marriages over here among our neighbors will all be void and that their children will be illegitimate.'"

Roosevelt's audience laughed at the improbability of this assertion. "You may laugh," he continued, "But they were not laughing. They thought it was true, and they were honest, law-abiding citizens. They did not have the education, the contact, to know better. Oh, I could go on and tell you a thousand stories along that line."


....Many of those who had known him before his inauguration and who watched him during the Hundred Days expressed amazement at how much larger he now seemed. Norman Davis and Raymond Fosdick had worked with Roosevelt in the Wilson administration; Davis told Fosdick, after a visit to the White House: "Ray, that fellow in there is not the fellow we used to know. There's been a miracle here." Fosdick agreed. "There HAD been a miracle, an intellectual and spiritual metamorphosis induced by adversity and triumph," he recounted later.

"Those lonely years of struggle when, as he told me once, his sole, determined purpose was to move his big toe, had done something to his character - something fine and strong which brought him courage and bold confidence, a depth of penetration and a new self-control. From now on he feared nothing and he faced the problems of his generation not only with level eyes but with sympathy and imagination."

Fosdick afterward recalled a formal dinner at the White House. Roosevelt shuffled down the long passage from the state dining room to the East Room, where the guests were gathered.

"He used a cane and hung heavily on the arm of an aide; and his walk was the slow, painful, contorted shuffle of paralysis. As he approached the door the Marine Band played 'Hail to the Chief,' and in a flash I realized with a lump in my throat that this apparently broken man was indeed the chief - with the capacity and magnetism of great leadership, and bearing on his face and in his handsome eyes the mark of confidence and power."

....[conservative cabinet member Raymond] Moley would change his views regarding Roosevelt's policies. But he never lost his admiration for the man's remarkable gifts, including the ability to treat the weightiest subjects with ease and laughter. "In short, he was like the fairy-story prince who didn't know how to shudder. Nor even the realization that he was playing nine-pins with the skulls and thighbones of economic orthodowy seemed to worry him."

Deconstructing the Right Wing Lies on the Health Insurance Bill



{{{ Excerpt from biblical scholar Bruce Chilton's new book ABRAHAM'S CURSE The Roots of Violence in Judaism, Christianity, and Islam. (Child Sacrifice in the Legacies of the West) }}}

....But what if the sacrificial era has not gone by? Suppose the impulse to sacrifice, even to yield up the lives of children to gain supernatural favor, is still with us. If you consider, not what we say about ourselves, but what we do in relation to one another, you would observe that the twentieth century saw more children sacrificed to one cause or another than any previous century saw offered to its gods. The shift from religious belief to secular cause has not changed the fact that the increase of violence against innocents appears unrelenting.

With brutal precision, Wilfred Owen, writing during World War I in "The Parable of the Old Man and the Young," encapsulated the experience of the twentieth century. In his poem, even divine intervention cannot control Abraham's impulse to kill his child:

So Abram rose, and clave the wood, and went,
And took the fire with with him, and a knife.
And as they sojourned both of them together,
Isaac the first-born spake and said, My Father,
Behold the preparations, fire and iron,
But where the lamb, for this burnt-offering?
Then Abram bound the youth with belts and straps,
and builded parapets and trenches there,
And stretched forth the knife to slay his son.
When lo! an Angel called him out of heaven,
Saying, Lay not thy hand upon the lad,
Neither do anything to him, thy son.
Behold! Caught in a thicket by its horns,
A Ram. Offer the Ram of Pride instead.
But the old man would not so, but slew his son,
And half the seed of Europe, one by one.

....Abraham's curse remains our inheritance, because we live during a period of renewed sacrificial intensity, often without any awareness that violence since the First World War is unparalleled in its scale and in its choice of young victims. By untangling our actions from the atavistic impulse that kills children in the name of virtue, we can at last free Isaac from the cords that, had they remained tied, would have denied Abraham his progeny. Unless we do, unless Abraham's impulse and the means to transform that impulse are discovered, then Wilfred Owen will prove to be a prophet of this century as well as a principal poet of the last....


29 Engineers: Only Explosives Can Explain 9/11 World Trade Center Destruction

29 Structural & Civil Engineers Cite Evidence for Controlled Explosive Demolition in Collapses of All 3 WTC High-Rises on 9/11

More than 700 architects and engineers have joined call for new investigation.

For Some, the Doubts Began Early.

“Something is wrong with this picture,” thought Nathan Lomba, as he watched replays of the Twin Tower collapses on television on September 11, 2001. A licensed structural engineer trained in buildings’ responses to stress, Lomba saw more on the screen than you or I. He puzzled, “How did the structures collapse in near-symmetrical fashion when the damage was clearly not symmetrical?”

Lomba was hardly alone in his discomfort. Most structural engineers were surprised when the towers fell. They mainly kept their misgivings to themselves, though, as Scientific American and the Journal of Engineering Mechanics, BBC, the History Channel and government agencies such as FEMA and NIST offered varying and often imaginative theories to explain how fires brought the towers down.

Dear Some Of The Above News

I need your help to get this message out:

A recent headline in Bloomberg News said: "Obama Offers Key Posts to those who Bankrolled Campaign."

Under the 11th Circuit's ruling in "The Siegelman Case," President Obama and contributors who accept appointments could be indicted and convicted of bribery and extortion if President Obama knew at the time they made a contribution that the donor wanted the post to which the President later appointed them.

54 former Attorneys General, both Democrats and Republicans, said the 11th Circuit's ruling in the Siegelman case means "a prosecutor has the power to indict and convict any politician and any donor whenever a donation was made and the politician took action consistent with the donor's desire, while aware of said desire."

Your Congressional representatives need to know about this. Send them a message today!

Here is why it is important to Members of the House and Senate:

What's at stake is whether an elected official can be prosecuted for doing something for a contributor. Sound crazy? It is! The U.S. Supreme Court made it clear in McCormick v. U.S. that it takes an actual explicit quid pro quo agreement before the line between politics and crime is crossed. However, in my case, the court said that juries may infer an agreement from the minds and actions of the elected official and the contributor, the opposite of explicit.

The 54 former State Attorneys General told the 11th Circuit Court of Appeals in the Siegelman case: "Such an interpretation puts at risk every politician who accepts a campaign contribution." "...criminalizing activities that fall short of an explicit quid pro quo agreement, can only lead to an impermissible chilling effect on the First Amendment right to contribute to political campaigns."

It is important not only to my freedom but also to every elected official, including the President Obama, to get this First Amendment issue clarified.

As I raise money to pay for my $150,000 appeal to the U.S. Supreme Court I am asking you to continue the fight in Congress.

Click here to send a message to your U.S. House and Senate Members, and urge them to investigate the prosecutorial misconduct in my case and remind them that 54 former state Attorneys General have said that the ruling in the Siegelman case "puts every politician at risk."

Thank you so much.

Press Release, 640 Architects and Engineers Call for New 9/11 Investigation

Evidence of Explosives Found in Destruction of All 3 WTC High-Rises

AE911Truth to Display Evidence at National AIA Convention 4/30 — 5/2, Moscone Center
Press Conference/Speaking Engagement Saturday May 2 at 4 pm, Westin Market Street Hotel


Actor and activist Ed Asner has signed the Architects and Engineers for 911Truth (AE911Truth) online petition and sent a letter of support.

The text of the letter reads:


October 6, 2008

To Whom It May Concern:

I would like to thank Richard Gage, AIA and Architects and Engineers for 9/11 Truth for presenting the scientific facts behind the unprecedented destruction of the World Trade Center Twin Towers and Building 7. AE911Truth presents solid research that contradicts the official story of the building's destruction with the overwhelming evidence of explosive controlled demolition.

An accurate understanding of history is required to make good decisions in the future. Over and over again, history has shown that the first public perceptions of historical events are not always correct. I, along with millions of others, have serious questions about our country's recent history about 9/11.

I have signed the petition calling for an unbiased investigation of the "collapses" of these three high-rise buildings. I encourage everyone to do the same, and also become a Sustaining Member of Architects and Engineers for 9/11 Truth.
