Cynthia McKinney

9/11 Truth Movement Should Support Cynthia McKinney for President!

Many people in the 9/11 Truth Movement have understandably been energized by the Ron Paul campaign for President. It was indeed heartening to see a contender for the Republican Party nomination who was supportive of the call for a new, genuine, thorough and comprehensive investigation of 9/11.

However, now that that the Republican race is all but over, and Mr. Paul has indicated that he will not seek to run as an independent, I ask those of you in the Movement (who have not already done so) to please consider lending your financial and volunteer support to former Georgia Congresswoman Cynthia McKinney, who is seeking the Green Party nomination for President of the United States.

How the 9/11 Commission Got it Wrong - an Introduction to 9/11 Skepticism on YouTube

In the wake of Philip Shenon's best-seller, "The Commission", comes another wave of Americans snapping out of a media-induced trance. On another front, to a different audience, Willie Nelson is waking up another sector of the sleepwalking masses with his skepticism. Whatever route you took that made you take a second look at 9/11, welcome... and, you've got some catching up to do.

If Shenon's book was your introduction to the simple fact that the 9/11 Commission failed in its mandate on several levels, then you are probably unaware that serious criticism of the 9/11 Commission was entered into the Congressional Record of the 109th Congress. This criticism was the result of a Congressional Briefing conducted by former Congressional Representative, Cynthia McKinney of Georgia. (McKinney is currently seeking the Presidential nomination for the Green Party of the United States.)

The briefing was held on July 22nd, 2005, subsequently broadcast by C-SPAN, and studiously ignored by the corporate press. A comprehensive collation of the briefing has not been made available online, but thanks to the magic of YouTube, I have chopped the most pertinent testimonies from that day into neat 10 minute segments that are easily digestible for the busy internet surfer. You may have seen some of the footage from the briefing in the documentary, "Press for Truth", where Lorie Van Auken talked about her husband's fate on 9/11. Beyond that, not much of this footage has been circulating on the net.

So, if you are new to 9/11 Truth, or 9/11 skepticism, or you just have some questions, this is a great start. This briefing does not present much speculation or theory, but does break down the Commission on its bureaucratic failings, and lists a host of anomalies that will send you researching for days if this is all new to you. (This briefing does not discuss controlled demolition theories at all, it wasn't until physicist Steven Jones came on the scene in 2006 that CD "exploded" into the massive topic for 9/11 skeptics that is currently is. There was a lot of research already published online, and some in books, but it took a PhD to kick it over the top.)

The YouTube series is in 25 parts, and begins with McKinney's opening statement;

They are also vocal supporters of impeachment and a new 9/11 investigation, which many Paul supporters wish he would have stood behind.

Do You Believe In Life After Paul?

by Caleb Friz

http://www.opednews.com

The Ron Paul campaign is over. While he may hang in there for a few more weeks, the hope of Dr. Paul having any sway at a brokered convention has been dashed as he failed to pick up a substantial amount of delegates tonight on Super Tuesday. While he did have some double digit showings in North Dakota, Minnesota, Montana, and Alaska, these winner take all states did not boost his profile in the end. The only strong states he has left are Washington and Texas, but after his poor showing tonight it is unlikely that he will succeed in those states. As much as it hurts me to admit it, Ron Paul is finished.

"Super Tuesday" or "Stupor Tuesday" - The Property Party Wins Again...


Peter Dale Scott addresses the Santa Cruz Media Strategy Summit, January 26, 2008.

In the above video, Peter Dale Scott talks about the futility of engaging with a system that offers no real choice, referencing Gore Vidal, who has said, in various ways, "We only have one political party in the U.S., and that is the property party, which essentially is corporate America, which has two right wings, one called Republican and one called Democrat. I can't say I like either of them."

In his book, (which he quotes from in the video), The Road to 9/11, Scott points out that real change in this country is not going to come from the top down. In other words, substituting one representative of the Property Party for another is not going to change anything. Real change in this country will come from the bottom-up, through the networking efforts of grass-roots activists and media activism that currently has its home on the internet. A real, workable coalition is needed, engaging the divided voting public. Scott writes that what we need "is a movement, like that of Solidarity in Poland, that unites the various elements in civil society instead of setting them against each other. I suspect that left and right, by discarding preconceptions and learning more about those whom they presume to be adversaries, could discover that they may have more in common than they believe." (The Road to 9/11, p.250)

Arizona Greens Need Help to Get Cynthia McKinney on the Ballot

The message below is from an email I received requesting help getting ballot access for the Green Party in Arizona -- Cynthia McKinney will not be on the ballot without the Greens getting ballot access.

This is a one-time effort that has a long-term pay-off, both for 9/11 truth efforts and for the Greens.

The Greens are the only political party that has openly continues to call for a new investigation into the 9/11/01 attacks. They have consistently put out press releases from 2001 onward that question the 9/11/01 attacks and responses, consistently endorse 9/11/01 events, host 9/11/01 speakers at Green events, and so on.

Now that the Greens are running Cynthia McKinney as a presidential candidate, this is our opportunity to help bring 9/11 truth issues front and center in the 2008 presidential campaign.

If you were told by corporate media that Congresswoman McKinney was defeated by another Democratic Congressperson, because she had a run in with a guard at the Capitol, your head must still be spinning because of the multiple lies and distortions corporate media has hit you with. Let’s untangle the lies.

Cynthia McKinney is a key to the corporate media, Democratic, Republican suppression of 9/11 truth, and her story is very illuminating.

It all began with her appearance on KPFA, Pacifica Radio, in San Francisco on March 25, 2002. But, let’s set the stage a bit. Remember this was only seven months after 9/11, after Leahy and Daschle, the only opposition Party members leading challenges to the Patriot Act had been sent US military grade anthrax in the mail, and at a point when too many of the Democrats were fighting with one another to see who could kiss George W. Bush’s *ss first.

On this regional radio program Congresswoman McKinney had the good sense to state several things that seem so obvious now, but to the trembling frightened sheep we called our Congress and Senate on the Dem side, and the goose-stepping GOP on the other side . . . McKinney’s words seemed heretical...

Cynthia McKinney Wants Real C.H.A.N.G.E.

http://www.jonesreport.com/article/01_08/140108_mckinney_change.html

Hillary Clinton wants "change" as the only woman candidate for president... but if "change" means a shift into further global control, then no thanks.

Barack Obama wants "change you can believe in" as the only black man in the presidential race... but his "change" is no more believable than Hillary's-- and he's sure to be just as globally controlled.

Cynthia McKinney, on the otherhand, as the only Black Woman candidate for president, likes real change-- WeAreChange.org.

McKinney says, "I love We Are Change. WeAreChange.org-- the gutsiest, most courageous young people. Go get 'em! It's your government; it's you. You deserve the truth."

Ousted Georgia lawmaker to run for president

http://www.cnn.com/2007/POLITICS/12/20/mckinney.president.ap/index.html

ATLANTA, Georgia (AP) -- Former Democratic Rep. Cynthia McKinney, who was ousted from office last year after a headline-grabbing scuffle with a Capitol Hill police officer, has decided to seek the presidency -- as a Green Party candidate.

In a video posted on the Internet on Tuesday, McKinney criticized the war in Iraq and complained about Democrats and Republicans, saying both parties are beholden to corrupt corporate interests. She called the Green Party "my new political home."

McKinney, 52, registered to vote in California after a group called Run! Cynthia! Run! began drafting her as the Green Party's candidate there. Since then, she had made campaign appearances in Texas, Oklahoma, Iowa, Illinois, Minnesota and Wisconsin.

"The Democrats do not speak for us," she said. "The Democrats are no different than their Republican counterparts."

McKinney served six terms representing a suburban Atlanta district but was defeated in 2006 by DeKalb County Commissioner Hank Johnson. She had been the first black woman elected to Congress from Georgia.
