Hungry for 9/11 Truth: Hunger-Strike by 9/11 Truth Activist to Put the Spotlight on Senator John McCain

In an effort to focus national attention on the 9/11 truth issue by going directly to a power center of the 2008 Presidential Campaign, members of Phoenix 9/11 Truth will support Blair Gadsby, a professor of Religious Studies and signatory to the PatriotsQuestion911 website, in a hunger-strike slated to begin Memorial Day, 2008 at the Phoenix office of Senator John McCain. McCain has supported the official account of 9/11 by writing the foreword to the 2006 Popular Mechanics book [Debunking 9/11 Myths: Why Conspiracy Theories Can't Stand Up to the Facts]. Gadsby, an Arizonan who is represented by Senator McCain, stated for the record, "I believe Mr. McCain is a man of deep integrity. He has stood up to corporate influence in campaigns and to the very powerful Military Industrial Complex in the past, and he has a record of being a maverick. That's why I've chosen to offer him this opportunity to face the issues head-on publicly. He may be one of the very, very few who have the integrity and stature to keep the military loyal and find the broad-based political support to bring about a change in our great country. But today, he is in a perilous position. By writing the Foreword to the official cover-up story, he has sided with the corrupt and war-mongering elements in our society and government. But if he can be made to see that he has been lied to, like the rest of the American people, he may be able to pull us back from the brink of an America perpetually at war. In the end, that's what this is all about - a wartime economy that is out of control We need someone to rein it in, and I'm pinning my hopes that Senator McCain will do the right thing, and not be so desperate to become President that he will sell himself out. I only hope it's not too late."

Gadsby goes on to say that the reason he is willing to do a hunger-strike is because, "As an Arizonan, having my Senator write the Foreword to an obviously false story gives me a golden opportunity to draw attention to 9/11 truth issues. I believe I am handing the Senator an opening to look at the evidence and change his position. Mr. McCain could have the American people on his side in a heartbeat if and when they are given a chance to learn the truth. Once all of the American people come to learn details about 9/11, they are going to be mad as hell. The country has been far too patient with the many misdeeds of the Bush Administration. The Afghanistan war, and to no small degree, the Iraq war, were a direct result of 9/11. What the 9/11 Truth Movement and many others have established beyond a shadow of a doubt is that 9/11 was a classic case of "false-flag terrorism" used to mobilize the country for war. There's much more at stake here than just 9/11 truth. I believe if Mr. McCain hears our message and acts with the integrity that I know he possesses, he will go down in history as the political maverick he has striven to be."

Gadsby says he will fast until McCain agrees to give him and the Phoenix 9/11 Truth group two hours of time: one hour for presentation of evidence and facts followed by one hour of debate between leading investigators and scientists on both sides of the issue, "I challenge them to allow the American people to view the video footage of WTC7's collapse and the various experts describing the characteristics of a controlled demolition. The people are not stupid, once they see the evidence, huge questions will arise and it is right here where folks become intimidated. But this must be done, as painful as it is."

Tim King, a spokesman for Phoenix 9/11 Truth urges activists around the country to assist the Phoenix group in bringing media attention to Gadsby's unprecedented Hungry for 9/11 Truth, hunger-strike. King urges citizens and activists to question McCain about the hunger-strike while he's on the campaign trail.

Dear Mr. Gadsby

I am sorry to say........ You better eat a very big dinner.

M.K. Gandhi...

M.K. Gandhi would at times resort to a 'fast unto death,' when the situation warranted that. I do believe that same spirit is needed here. Reaching that limit would speak volumes. The method cannot really lose -- it either succeeds early, or late.

I am reminded of the very many Buddhist monks, over time, who set themselves afire in front of the U.S. Embassy in Saigon, to protest the Viet Nam war back then. It definitely got everyone's attention.

I wish him the best. I do believe others will need to follow suit, each of us in our own ways. This will take a total effort.

In the

Predatorial world of the Neo-Cons, it is better to miss a few meals than become one as they expand their empire.

Kudos for your efforts.

I wish you all the best and my prayers will be with you.

Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness..........

The CONSTITUTION is NOT going to "collapse" into pulverized dust no matter how much thermate/explosives or planes they throw at it

John Mccain

How can any one describe McCain as a man of 'deep integrity'? The fellow wants to keep US soldiers killing Iraqi civilians for 100 + years! And he is a loyal servant of Israel....


only God can answer.

Like I said.

I will be praying......

Mastermind of Nixon's Watergate break-in McCains 'old friend'

Mastermind of Nixon's Watergate break-in calls McCain an 'old friend'

It's a classic pattern in politics, isn't it? A young, fresh, charismatic, upstart candidate bursts onto the campaign trail to glowing reviews from the press that covers him only to have those same reporters and pundits aim their BB guns toward his rising balloon just as it's ready to crest the horizon.

While that arc seems to be playing out now for Barack Obama, whose faced relentless recrimination over his associations with controversial pastors and former radicals in recent weeks, the media largely let John McCain float by unscathed.

Chicago Tribune columnist Steve Chapman explores McCain's "own radical friend."

"Obama has been justly criticized for his ties to former Weather Underground member Bill Ayers, who in 1995 hosted a campaign event for Obama and in 2001 gave him a $200 contribution," Chapman wrote. "The two have also served together on the board of a foundation. When their connection became known, McCain minced no words: 'I think not only a repudiation but an apology for ever having anything to do with an unrepentant terrorist is due the American people.'"

"What McCain didn't mention," Chapman adds, "is that he has his own Bill Ayers-in the form of G. Gordon Liddy. Now a conservative radio talk-show host, Liddy spent more than 4 years in prison for his role in the 1972 Watergate burglary. That was just one element of what Liddy did, and proposed to do, in a secret White House effort to subvert the Constitution. Far from repudiating him, McCain has embraced him."


Gandhi on fasting

While I can't say I'm opposed to this idea, because the goal of 2 hours is more humble that some demands I can think of, I must note that American practitioners of nonviolent tactics such as a fast generally ignore what Gandhi really said and did. Gandhi held that you ONLY fast on people who LOVE you. He held that fasting on your adversary is a form of violence.

The bigger danger is whether our brave brother actually will give his life if and when his Senator gives him the cold shoulder. The value of the action will be debatable if he backs down once he starts.

Contact me if you want to read what Gandhi wrote. 410-499-5403

Please note that a form of fasting is one of the 17 action ideas I propose at my website The fast idea is described at #9.

Combating pervasive injustice

Those are good points, David, about how Gandhi used fasting, IMO. I also like your website.

I am struggling mightily to imbibe how Gandhi could 'live in the shoes of his opponents' -- vile folks, really, by our standards of right and wrong; who detested him, and would willingly kill him if they could have, and who did their best, continually, to destroy him.

I do believe this skill of his underlies his immense power in combating injustice. I think we'll need similar skill, even just to expose 911 truth widely.


... that's the problem with America -- the naivety of its people is without bounds. This is not a burger-flipping John Doe here, for christ sakes -- it's a college professor!... I couldn't believe my eyes when I read that!!!

Yeah, as if that's the problem with McCain -- that he DOESN'T KNOW!!! McCain has done everything but write on his forehead that he is a neocon bitch. What does a person have to do in this country to send a clear message that he DOES NOT GIVE A SHIT!

The problem with McCain is obviously not the lack of information, it's the lack of MOTIVATION. Now, if dear professor would come up with some ideas about how to motivate the SOB, he would do a great service to this country. If thousands of dead Americans don't provide the proper motivation for McCain then sure a starving college professor is not going to resurrect his soul, either.

Personally, I wouldn't waste one Joule of my energy for a sack like McCain, not to mention, refuse a nutritious meal. Not even for publicity's sake. Let's face it -- McCain is a lost cause, leave this zombie alone! Save your energy for others who are still at least partly human.

He clearly understands that we need to ACT NOW !

Professor Blair Gadsby is giving 9/11 Truth and Reconciliation an enormous boost by this “Hungry for 9/11 Truth” hunger-strike action.

Why he chose McCain is because McCain is on the Presidential Campaign Trail, and having a professor of Religion from his own constituency doing a hunger strike, asking for 2 hours of his time to review his initial position about the 9/11 attacks, as he had stated them in his foreword to the Hearst publication by former video magazine editor turned “Official 9/11 fairy-tale defender in chief”, M. James B. Meigs.

Professor Blair Gadsby wants all to focus once again on the hard facts, and look at ALL the possibilities that could best explain the means, the motive and the opportunity exploited by who-ever it was that needed a transformative event to place the Nation in a declaration of “A State of Emergency” (See George Wahington’s recent post: Declarations of Emergency: Setting the Record Straight ). As it is IMPERATIVE that a maximum amount of individuals who do understand how close America stands to the brink of Martial Law, with further acts of synthetic terror and illegal acts of war, we must encourage all to show the same courage, sense of urgency and indignation as M. Gadsby!

It is NOT the soon to be elected (or proclaimed dictator) President of the USA that will help the country forward, it is what YOU and I, and ALL OF US CITIZENS do that will bring the country out of its criminal darkness. In order for that to happen, more and more of us will need to rapidly show the type of engagement as inspired by Ghandi and Professor Blair Gadsby.

Thank-you Professor Gadsby!!

I applaud the effort....'ll bring some attention to the issue.

I do agree with the above, however, McCain is a symptom of the agenda. At this point, I believe, he's just a prop--another Reagan. You'll want to pay attention to his pick of running mate, who'll be in the driver's seat much as Bush the Elder was in the Reagan administration.

I'm uncertain, McCain is very alert and conscious. I read McCain is a sick man who is propped up with meds when in public, but in private, he's out to lunch! It's the rumor, anyway.

Again, if it brings attention to our dilemma, it's a good idea. A hunger strike is a good idea!

...don't believe them!

Great initiative...

... Professor Gadsby is obviously very brave. Isn't 9/11 truth worth dying for? Please keep us updated in the developments of this very promising initiative.
