Judge John Walker, George Walker Bush's cousin, judges April Gallop's suit

Background: Army Specialist April Gallop, was in the wing of the Pentagon that was hit on 9/11, with her small boy, and injured in the rubble. She was instructed by her commanding officers to speak the Official Story, but bravely spoke her true observations. In 2008, she sued Cheney, Rumsfeld, and Myers for not evacuating the Pentagon, when they knew it was a potential target. Her case was dismissed on March 15, 2010, but appealed that decision.

Status: On April 5, 2011 the appeal of the case of Gallop v. Cheney, Rumsfeld, and Myers was heard by the United States Court of Appeals for the 2nd Circuit at 11 a.m. at New Haven, Connecticut. But one of the 3 judges turned out to be George Walker Bush's cousin, Judge John M. Walker Jr., an obvious conflict of interest.

Update: Press Release from William Veale of the Center for 911 Justice, April 6, 2011

April's attorney William Veale gave a radio interview with Kevin Barrett after the hearing on his No Lies Radio Show:
(Turn live RADIO: OFF in the upper right. Then click the arrow next to "It is now archived here -- Use Player")

Summary: William Veale can be heard about 23 minutes into the interview. He discusses his suspicion that Judge John M. Walker, one of the three on the panel is potentially related to George Walker Bush. During the hearing, Veale did not have access to Wikipedia* to check, but thought "You take a look at him, and he's a Bush."

He filed a motion to disqualify Walker, but the Court denied it. He moved for a Continuance (postponement) to review that denial, but it was denied. He then made his prepared arguments for the appeal. "There it is, we did the best we could." He says the Court asked him a lot of "impertinent and demeaning questions" such as whether he is authorized to practice law in the area.

Apparently no actual decision came from the proceeding as of now. Veale says a federal judge can decide whatever he wants, whenever he wants, even years from now. He sadly predicts they will affirm the judgement of the lower court and deny the appeal. Veale discussed other avenues for appeal he can take. Veale states, around the 43 minute point, "I know that there was a conspiracy...inside job, that's a fact." **

Judge Walker was chosen to be a judge for a case involving his cousin.
He did not recuse himself from a case with an obvious conflict of interest.
He sat there, all the while knowing he is a cousin, heard William Veale's objection to his being a potential relative, said nothing to about it, and just denied the objection.
Judge John M. Walker Jr. is now judging the appeal of a case involving the administration of his cousin George Walker Bush.

key article and post

Thank you "truth makes peace" for posting this.. The Orwellian theme continues regarding 9/11, and those who declare "War Is Peace" continue to pull the strings. Any publication or media source of any worth will take note of this incredible situation.. which comes right on the heels of the decision for a military tribunal (kangaroo court) for tortured Guantanamo suspects.

Without truth there can be no justice, and without justice there can be no peace.

This is another reason why a citizen referendum-investigation of 9/11 is so crucial, as proposed by former Senator Mike Gravel. We got to work together to give peace a chance. Let us keep trying to unite anti-war, pro-democracy and justice groups to join with 9/11 truth in NYC this 10th anniversary of the biggest lie.

Inside Job

This entire episode, from its inception, to its over-reaching content (which advances "flyover"), to its dubious array of staunch supporters, to its contrived "official" opposition (Bush family member), to the bizarre collection of internet coverage has all of the hallmarks of a carefully orchestrated "plot," including from within the movement, to categorically discredit genuine truth seekers in the public arena. I, for one, am glad there was no mainstream news coverage. Barrett's hyperbolic reading of the original lawsuit while he was waiting for Veale to come on the air is one example of the hollow ring this has. Who's paying for all of this? It takes some ch-ching to get a team of lawyers to bring a case and an appeal to Federal Court. Burying this in the blog section here is not deep enough, IMHO.

April Gallop, William Veale, and Kevin Barrett - good Truthers

Please keep in mind that Kevin Barrett chose to lose his job as a university professor to speak out about 9/11 Truth. He has even received threats. Bill O'Reilly said he should be fired, hit by a mob and thrown in to the river. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jjxa4KzT52k

April Gallop has also been threatened, and is not rich. It would be so easy for her, and she would get more money and less stress, by just going along with the official story. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7EcpiPL6kw4

William Veale is the "team" of 1 attorney helping April on this case. The money for his expenses come from donations. He does so much pro bono work out of a sincere desire for justice and truth. You can evaluate his video at www.CenterFor911Justice.org

Spot on, 911Peacenik,

and I cannot express it better.

What exacty are you saying here?

Kevin Barrett is part of some plot ?

I wouldn't say KB

is part of a plot.
I do think he's been covered extensively here and it seems there are far better types in the TM to invest time and ink in.

Someone took her seriously

They put George W. Bush's COUSIN. Judge John M. Walker Jr., up against April and Veale. If she were just a nut with no merit to her evidence [which included the nanothermite paper] why would this occur? A coincidence?

April's big mistake...

This drama aside, April's drama is that she heard a loud boom that sounded, to her, like a bomb while she was inside the pentagon that morning without a view outside where many, many people observed AA77 come roaring in and smash into the pentagon.

Furthermore, while crawling out of the hole blinded by the thick black smoke so much so that she couldn't see her hand in front of her face, April stated she was unable to remember seeing any identifiable wreckage of a big plane, even though she actually crawled through the bits of drebris left behind after the high speed impact.

These links

are to sites that apparently are not testimony taken under oath, as would be the case in a fair trial, but also have such high security that they could be thought to be FBI, CIA or other government. And where are the Pentagon security videos?

Quantity of links, but not quality. April's case is righteous.

There sure are a lot of links. But they do not discount April Gallop's testimony of being caught in the Pentagon rubble, when she and the other staff members should have been evacuated. That is the point of the case. It is not a mistake to hold accountable the officials who knew that buildings were being attacked.

>Steve Storti:
Quantity of links is not a replacement for quality. Steve Storti? Are you serious? He claimed to see, from a mile away, with only a split second's view of the plane, through the windows of the plane, and people moving in the back of the plane.

The plane didn't fly

...over the Pentagon. April's court case unfortunately promoted that crazy, baseless claim and thus was rightfully described as 'frivolous' by the judge who threw it out. 'Flyover' appears to have been invented by Dick Eastman, subsequently picked up on and further peddled by two lying con artists named Craig and Aldo, and has yet again done, and continues to do, tremendous damage to the 9/11 Truth Movement. Jesse 'DEW' Ventura pimped this theory in his paranoid conspiracy garbage entertainment racket. Does any of this bother you, or do you enjoy being conned?


I disagree this case is salvageable... piggybacking strong, defensible claims now is only going to serve to discredit good research by association.

Don't forget

that other Cousin Walker: Wirt, who along with Brother Marvin B. ran security for the WTO.


Despite the report in the mainstream media, Wirt D. Walker III is not related to the Bush clan.


* Securacom did not "run" security for the WTC complex (I'm assuming you didn't mean the World Trade Organization WTO), it provided electronic security only; day-to-day responsibility for WTC security was in the hands of the Port Authority.
* Marvin Bush was on the board of directors, but had left Securacom in 2000.

You can look up Marvin Bush on History Commons and it will report that Wirt III Walker is a 'distant relative', but there is no evidentiary basis for this claim; and it is unknown how many generations back the link goes, in which case it should be noted that Barack Obama is probably a closer relative to the Bush family.

These are three common errors, which, unfortunately, continue to proliferate.

It should be noted though, that Securacom did provide electronic security for Dulles and Reagan airport; Dulles is where flight AA 77 took off, and Reagan national airport is the one next to the Pentagon.

I also seem to remember Securacom providing security for some of the laboratories where nanothermite was underdevelopment; either that or it was Kroll (another firm involved in WTC security, tied to Jerome Hauer)

BTW, Marvin Bush was in NYC on 9/11.


Make that WTC.

Judge Walker's "judgment", killing police officer Daniel Picagli

Judge Walker ran his car into, and killed police officer Daniel Picagli of New Haven, who was directing traffic and wearing a reflective vest, on October 17, 2006.

The police did not test Walker for drugs or alcohol. He sure is a walker. Anyone else but the "elite" would have been charged with involuntary manslaughter, vehicular homicide, or at least lost his drivers license. President Bush's cousin was not even charged. He did not even have to take a remedial Driver's Education course.

Even drivers with average judgment know to slow down, drive carefully during rain. Many ordinary drivers passed Officer Picagli without hitting him. Judges are supposed to have above-average judgment.

How do you think Officer Daniel Picagli's family feels? America deserves equal justice under the law.
