Video message from Congressman Dennis J Kucinich: 911 Truth and Reconciliation September 10, 2010.
Ron Paul, "Dennis Kucinich won’t soon be forgotten"
May 17, 2012 - Kucinich announces retirement from Congress
“After careful consideration and discussions with Elizabeth and my closest friends, I have decided that, at this time, I can best serve from outside the Congress,” Kucinich wrote in an e-mail to supporters. “My commitments to peace, to workers' rights and to social and economic justice are constant and are not dependent upon holding an office.”
Kucinich had to make his decision this week; the filing deadline in Washington was this Friday.
On September 11, 2010, Congressman Dennis Kucinich published a video message on YouTube calling for "9/11 truth and reconciliation."
Kucinich is a Democratic member of the United States House of Representatives from Ohio 10th district and is a former candidate for the Democratic nomination for President of the United States in the 2004 and 2008 elections.
At the End US Wars Rally in Lafayette Park, Washington, D.C., I was able to ask a few questions of Ralph Nader, David Swanson, Dennis Kucinich and Cynthia McKinney after their speeches. Unfortunately, I deleted my video of McKinney by mistake, and held the camera sideways for the others (I now know video is not like photos...), so I only uploaded the audio w/ still clips for the others.
I had asked McKinney what she saw as the biggest challenges and opportunities for the 9/11 Truth Movement. She said she had supported NYCCAN and felt justice was disserved in the judge's decision to disallow it. She suggested that a People's Tribunal might be worth pursuing, but that something with legal authority would be best. She also said that she will be pursuing the issue if she gets reelected to Congress.
I particularly liked Ralph Nader's response when I asked about the biggest unanswered questions; he said, "Who's responsible?" is the biggest.
I asked Kucinich the status on his committee's investigation into 9/11, and he said that it is an issue he maintains an interest in- he has questions about pre-9/11 financial transactions- but that his committee has been swamped dealing with Wall Street investigations and the economic meltdown.
David Swanson said 9/11 has not been investigated, and a full investigation is an important issue.
Today, the fifth day of our campaign, we will be sending a fax to House Representative Dennis Kucinich. Mr. Kucinich has repeatedly demonstrated himself to be on the side of truth and justice, and on the side of the people, and he has shown himself to be a very open-minded, rational human being. We are encouraged by his criticism of the war, his receptiveness to 9/11 truth, his policies regarding the abolition of the Federal Reserve, and we hope that he will devote the same passion to the cause of bringing this paper to light once he reads it. Let’s send him a fax asking him to take a look at this evidence. Please take two minutes to send Rep. Kucinich a fax asking him to take a look at the “Active Thermitic Material” paper. You can use the sample letter provided below or write your own. As always a polite, respectful tone is preferable and you can send a free fax over the internet by going to www.faxzero.com.

Remembering 9/11 and Moving Forward
By Dennis Kucinich
America must move from the errant, retributive justice of 9/11 to a healing, restorative process of truth and reconciliation.
Before the Congress adjourns, I will bring forth a new proposal for the establishment of a National Commission on Truth and Reconciliation, which will have the power to compel testimony and gather official documents to reveal to the American people not only the underlying deception which has divided us, but in that process of truth seeking set our nation on a path of reconciliation.

House Judiciary Committee Chairman John Conyers has asked current and former White House aides and ex-CIA officials to respond to questions about an alleged scheme to create a bogus letter in late 2003 linking Saddam Hussein to al-Qaeda.
WeAreChangeLA asks Dennis Kucinich about breaking the silence in regards to using the truth about 9/11 as the 'portal into truth,' so that people will begin to look at many other pressing issues (lies).
Esai Morales follows in right behind with a great question about the Bilderbergers!
We will not be silenced . . .

On July 24, about 100 people gathered in Baltimore for a forum to stand up against a long-term spying operation conducted by the Maryland State Police against anti-death penalty and antiwar activists.
The surveillance and infiltration of the groups took place while Republican Robert Ehrlich was governor, according to 43 pages of state police reports recently released to the ACLU. The spying continued month after month despite the fact that the state's agents never recorded a single illegal act among the groups' protest activities. This week, the current governor, Martin O'Malley, appointed a panel to review the state police surveillance operation against the anti-death penalty and antiwar movements.
Dave Zirin, a sportswriter and activist, was one of the activists named in the spying reports. At the July 24 meeting, he talked about his reactions to the spy scandal and activists' plans for "going on offense."

Kucinich Pushes on Impeachment
By Jason Leopold
July 12, 2008
Congress has plenty of evidence that George W. Bush deserves impeachment for misleading the nation into war in Iraq, authorizing torture and other grave crimes, and violating the Constitution – and it is now time to act, says Rep. Dennis Kucinich.
“How many more hearings do we need to have to prove this administration has violated the Constitution, taken the law into its own hands, and condoned torture?” asked Kucinich, D-Ohio, author of some three dozen articles of impeachment.
“These articles of impeachment are about accountability,” Kucinich said in an interview. “I think our country is at risk. We’re setting a terrible precedent for future administrations if we choose to turn a blind eye to the crimes committed by this administration.
“We need to send a message to the next President that if he conducts himself in a similar capacity it would be met with a response from the Congress that you are going to be held to account. … There is a point at which you reduce Congress to a debating society.”

It’s crazy, but it’s coming soon – from the same folks who brought us Iraq.
Unlike the attack on Iraq five years ago, to deal with Iran there need be no massing of troops. And, with the propaganda buildup already well under way, there need be little, if any, forewarning before shock and awe and pox – in the form of air and missile attacks – begin.
This time it will be largely the Air Force’s show, punctuated by missile and air strikes by the Navy. Israeli-American agreement has now been reached at the highest level; the armed forces planners, plotters and pilots are working out the details.
Emerging from a 90-minute White House meeting with President George W. Bush on June 4, Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Olmert said the two leaders were of one mind:
Senator Johnson's Arizona Senate speech jumped to 12,000 hits over 2 days. The video is now annotated with clickable hyperlinks that lead to all of the Blair Gadsby videos that were posted here, Dennis Kucinich's 9/11 impeachment articles, and the petition that was read into the Canadian Parliament on June 10th. Please mirror the video on your site if you can;
The Kucinich* videos are catching on slowly, feeding off the Johnson cross-reference, and are linked back to Johnson;
In turn, Cynthia McKinney's 2005 Congressional Briefing is cross-referenced from the Kucinich videos;
* The Kucinich Articles of Impeachment (H.R. 1258) needs co-sponsors! See here for details;
MAKE YOUR CONGRESSIONAL REP. WORK FOR YOU.
President George W. Bush used to complain that being president was “hard work,” but he has gotten over that. Now he says it “has been a fabulous experience.”
Why fabulous? Well, a good part of it has to do with his past.
When Bush screwed up royally – whether in his personal or business affairs – he had to suffer the humiliation of asking his father or his father’s friends (sometimes Arab friends) to bail him out.
But now? Wow! As president, young George has found he can escape accountability altogether.
Now when he screws up royally, he need not call Dad; George W. Bush is himself in control of all the levers he needs to pull in order to bail himself out. Is this a great country or what?
An invertebrate Congress has been a big help. But his greatest asset limiting his liability has been the kind of folk he has gotten to work for him. The kind like Vice President Dick Cheney's former chief of staff, Scooter Libby, whom he has no problem asking to lie for him, when required.
For Bush’s powers are formidable – as he showed when Libby, convicted perjurer and obstructer of justice, was about to go off to prison. The president commuted Libby’s sentence, sending a message to others who might be called on to lie for him to hang tough and count on commutation or pardon.
A president’s unlimited power to pardon serves as the ultimate trump card to keep friends and associates out of jail.
Even so, one key aide, former CIA Director and Medal of Freedom winner, George Tenet, can be forgiven for being somewhat apprehensive these days. For he has lied under oath regarding what Bush knew about the 9/11 attacks and how early Bush knew it.
