Vancouver BC - Rob Duffy, Assistant to Canadian MP Libby Davies, has informed the Vancouver 9/11 Truth Society that the petition read in Canadian Parliament last Tuesday regarding the demand for a Canadian Investigation into 9/11 will be handled by none other than Canadian Minister of Public Safety, Stockwell Day.
Although such a document should likely be placed on the desk of the Minister of Foreign Affairs, perhaps some insight was used when the decision was made to forward this homework assignment to Mr. Day instead.
When we look at the credentials of Mr. Day we can see why this decision was made. Indeed, we see that no other Minister should have such a grand understanding of 9/11 than him. Mr. Day understands intelligence. He is a former CSIS agent himself. CSIS showed Canada it’s impressive counter terrorist abilities by uncovering the Air India Bombing plot in 1985 well before it happened. Unfortunately, they failed to pass this information on to the RCMP (he has worked there too) before it was too late. http://www.cbc.ca/canada/story/2007/05/17/airindia-csis.htm
Day 17 of Blair's hunger strike for 9/11 Truth came and went with dozens of citizens stopping by to give Blair their thanks and appreciation for a selfless act dedicated to the Truth about 9/11. Alex Jones interviewed Blair and Senator Johnson today as well as Mike Rivero of Whatreallyhappened.com and Jeff Farias from Nova M radio. Blair decided Day 17 would be his last day fasting for truth. His weight has dropped to 124 lbs from a normal of 155 lbs. Given the amount of press coverage, good or bad, generated from his hunger strike, the fantastic speech by Senator Johnson on the floor of the Arizona Senate and the apparent lack of concern by Senator McCain. Blair has decided that 17 days was enough. What better day than the 11th of the month? He has asked the staff of Senator McCain to forward any response from him to Blair's home address. What started out as an individual, sitting in a lawn chair, seeking a response from his elected representative in Washington D.C. ended with a positive response, not from the elected senator and not just from people in Phoenix, but from all over the world. People everywhere are hungry for the truth, and they are tired of being lied to. Email came from all over the country and globe. The people know about 9/11. The spell is wearing off. We may still be a silent majority, but we know. If anything is learned from this, it is the historical fact that one individual can make a difference and a contribution to better their city, their state and their world. Don't let anyone tell you differently. In my opinion Blair Gadsby has solidified that notion and he raised the bar a little in the process.
In the next few days Blair would like to issue a statement and as soon as he is ready we will post his words, and or video, here on 911 Blogger. Many thanks for everyone's support in this effort. Stay Hungry.
A personal thank you to "Charlie and the Human Tornado" of Tucson 9/11 Truth.
June 10, 2008 will be a moment in the 9/11 Truth movement we can all look back on and be extremely proud. For all of you who have spent countless hours reading books, watching DVD's, searching the internet, investigating what happened on 9/11, researching til 2, 3 or 4 o'clock in the morning, knowing you had to get up soon to go to work but you couldn't pull yourself away from this. For all of you who have been ridiculed, laughed at and have been told that you are nuts. For all of you who decided that it's time to do something about the obvious lies and cover-up by our government and media. For all of you who have stood on a street corner holding a 9/11 Truth sign and have absorbed a middle finger or heard the voice of a sheeple yelling, " GET A JOB !! " For all of you who have sacrificed your time, energy and money to organize a speaking engagement in your home town, only to be completely ignored by the media. For all of you who have made phone calls to your local representatives, radio stations, television and print media urging them to look into 9/11. For all of you who have experienced sleepless nights because you know something is very wrong with our country, our press and our democracy. For all of you who have a voice, but at times go unheard or suppressed. For all of you who stand up when it's uncomfortable, when it's inconvenient or when it's down right hard to do so. For all of you who stood by Blair and cheered him on. For all of you who continue to ASK QUESTIONS AND DEMAND ANSWERS. For all of you who wish you had a State Senator who could be your voice for you. For all of you who know that there is only one Senator from Arizona who stands for the Truth and it's not John McCain. It's Karen Johnson !! For all of you who work to achieve accountability for the victims of 9/11 and their families and for all of you who know 9/11 WAS AN INSIDE JOB, this is for you.
Thanks for your support over the last 16 days. These days will always belong to all of us.
Tuesday is going to be a big day for Blair, Please take a few minutes out of your day to call the National television Networks and demand coverage of this event. with all the local outlets covering the event the video is just a phone call away. Local video professional will be providing a pool feed for stations not willing to drive down town with a camera. -Drew

Senator Karen Johnson Blasts Congress for Failure to Defend U.S.
In a formal Floor speech in the Arizona Senate tomorrow (Tuesday, June 10), Senator Karen S. Johnson plans to blast Congress for their failure to defend U.S. citizens who were killed on September 11, 2001, and their failure to properly investigate those attacks.
“It has been nearly seven years,” says Johnson, “and we are faced with new evidence that turns the conclusions of the 9/11 Commission upside down. We are fighting a war because of 9/11 – and we still don’t really know what happened. We have spent billions of dollars on the war, with an additional $340 million per day. Thousands of U.S. servicemen and women have lost their lives, not to mention the lives of innocent Iraqi and Afghan civilians.”
Day 14: Blair was once again visited by many citizens from the Phoenix area. He remains in good sprite and health. I would like to take this opportunity to urge you to take 10 minutes out of Monday morning or afternoon and call one or two of John McCains offices and ask Mr. McCain to sit down with Richard Gage as soon as possible. This request has been made officially to McCain's Arizona staff and could possibly be fulfilled with your help.

Members of the Arizona truth movement meet for 45 minutes with John McCain's Arizona state director, Paul Hickman.
Blair was asked to brief Mr. Hickman on what his Hunger Strike is all about. Blair clearly communicated that John McCain has endorsed and written the foreward to a Book called “Debunking 9/11 Myths”. Blair explained that it is his belief that John McCain either knows that 9/11 was an inside job, or that he has been lied to about the evidence supporting the 9/11 Commission Report. Blair stated that he wanted a 2 hour meeting commitment some time in the future to meet with John McCain to present our side’s questions to the issue of 9/11 Truth. Richard Gage has agreed to meet with Senator McCain on a moments notice.
As we sat in his office we invited Mr. Hickman to view the collapse of WTC 7 on his computer and he cordially allowed us to pull-up the videos, he then viewed 3 different angled views of Building 7's collapse. He stated that he had never seen this footage, and when asked later what his thoughts and reaction to seeing the footage of the building collapse, he then stated “it is interesting”. He also asked us directly – “What was in building 7?” We of course answered the SEC, FBI, Secret Service, Gulliani’s Protective Bunker etc.
Mr. Hickman assured us that he would brief John McCain on our Hunger Strike, on the information that we had provided him including the WTC7 videos of the buildings collapse. We followed up by saying that time is of the essence, that our friend Blair was weakening and that a response today, tomorrow or Sunday would be preferable. We do not want Blair to tax his system any further. Mr. Hickman nodded in agreement that he understood.
Please keep Blair in your constant thoughts and prayers. He was visibly weakened as we left the office. This is Day 12 of Blair not eating.
The good news is just that, NEWS Coverage! Seeing a hard copy of the paper this morning gave Blair a big boost of energy. KTVK Channel 3 sent out a camera man this morning and interviewed Blair. Shortly after noon two McCain Staff Members came out to the curb and offered to sit down with Blair, Gage and Jones and allow them to present our side of the story to McCain's staff, Blair stood his ground and once again stated that he must have a two hour sit down with McCain and allow media to be present.
Blair was a busy man today, doing 5 interviews for Radio and Television. A second reporter from the Arizona Republic is schedule to come do an interview with Blair in the morning.
Day 9 of Blair Gadsby's Hunger Strike for 9/11 Truth brought two radio interviews and a phone interview from The Arizona Republic. Blair responded to Senator McCain's letter and Senator Karen Johnson issued her own written request to Sen. McCain urging him to meet with Blair, and both Blair and Senator Johnson were interviewed by Jack Blood on GCN radio network. It seems as though Blair has cracked the veil of silence from the MSM as his 9/11 concerns will be stated in a Arizona Republic newspaper article. Your constant calls, email and faxes to the MSM are working. Now is not the time to slow down or scale back our efforts. Your actions are empowering Blair and he feels it's because of your efforts that this hunger strike is receiving so much attention. It's time to push back. Could the summer of truth bring a crashing blow to the biggest cover-up of our time?

Matthew Benson - The Arizona Republic - Jun. 3, 2008
An Arizona state senator is petitioning presumptive GOP presidential nominee John McCain to meet with 9/11 conspiracy theorists, including an adjunct professor from Scottsdale who has been fasting outside McCain's Phoenix office for more than a week.
State Sen. Karen Johnson, a Mesa Republican, delivered a letter to McCain's Senate office Tuesday asking that he sit down with Scottsdale activist Blair Gadsby and a pair of leading members of the 9/11 Truth Movement to consider alternative explanations for the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks and the collapse of the World Trade Center towers. Gadsby's fast outside McCain's Senate office entered its 10th day today.
"There are so many questions left unanswered," said Johnson, who called for a new, independent investigation into the attacks.
Day 8 of Blair Gadsby's hunger strike for 9/11 Truth was met with opposition and a written response from the office of U.S. Senator John McCain. Blair was approached by the property manager at McCain's office and a Phoenix police officer and was told to remove his signs, stating that he was on private property. Numerous signs and banners have been surrounding Blair during his hunger strike to add to the visual affect. Wanting to comply with the law we had no choice but to remove the signs and now he has only what he can physically hold. Later in the day Blair made yet another visit inside the office to hand deliver a request to meet with Senator McCain. At this moment Blair was handed a written response to his request that stated the Senator's schedule would not permit him to meet with you at this time. If you notice the date on the letter, May 30th!! They let Blair sit outside, in 100 plus degree weather, on a hunger strike while that letter sat on someone's desk inside the office all weekend.
Blair is preparing a response to deliver back to the office of John McCain. (Image below the fold.)
I look forward to getting this event going. It's time we push this issue into the media whether they want it or not, and whether McCain wants it or not. I know that many thousands of people are also hungry to know the truth about September 11, 2001 and the conspiracy of silence is choking our Republic. Only when citizens rise up and speak truth to power can we ever hope to stand against these same corporate powers which seem to control far too much of our daily lives and profit from these unjust wars.
One of the most frustrating feelings generated from this exploration of truth for me is the sense that, well now I know... now what?
I have done my best to wake up friends and family with a good amount of success but I suspect they feel the same as I do, now what?
I applaud all those street activists who have bravely weathered critics, government lackeys, and the just plain ignorant.
I admittedly have done nothing that could be called street action.
So as time passes I feel more and more uncomfortable with this admission.
I feel I need to do something but that creeping feeling of helplessness is washing over me, even with the prospect of joining others in the street. After talking to a friend of mine I arbitrarily mentioned that, "if shit doesn't start happening I am going to drive down to D.C. park my ass at 1600 Pennsylvania Ave. and go on a hunger-strike until we have our day in court!"
I was not serious when I said it at first but it got us talking and I am actually considering doing it now.
On Memorial Day, May 26 2008, Blair Gadsby will start his hunger strike for 9/11 truth outside the Phoenix, Arizona office of Senator John McCain. Last night I talked to Blair and Tim King from Phoenix 9/11 Truth about the motivation and intention behind this action, its possibilities for success and the ways in which we can help to spread the word about the hunger strike. At the beginning of the show I talk to Adam, Cody and Sam from We Are Change Kentuckiana and We Are Change Ohio about being attacked by the police at the NRA convention in Lousiville.

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.
