Sen. John McCain
Obama roasts John McCain at Charity Dinner, some two weeks before the election. Very funny.
Obama is a truly talented comedian, and John McCain has a hard time concealing that he enjoys it. Wonderful to see.
Question: Can this sense of humor and timing be useful as President? Let us hope so.
On October 4, 2008, Republican Vice-Presidential Candidate Sarah Palin made an appearance in Southern California. Stewart Howe, of WeAreChangeLA, was on hand to bring the message of 9/11 truth peacefully to the event.

A 9:11 (9 minutes, 11 seconds) moment you won't want to miss.
This makes me sick.
In regards to 9/11 . . . "They would never . . . " ?? Of course they would. More evidence of a pattern whereby the ends justify the means, no matter the human or collateral cost.

McCain and the POW Cover-Up

John McCain, who has risen to political prominence on his image as a Vietnam POW war hero, has, inexplicably, worked very hard to hide from the public stunning information about American prisoners in Vietnam who, unlike him, didn't return home. Throughout his Senate career, McCain has quietly sponsored and pushed into federal law a set of prohibitions that keep the most revealing information about these men buried as classified documents. Thus the war hero who people would logically imagine as a determined crusader for the interests of POWs and their families became instead the strange champion of hiding the evidence and closing the books.
9/11 Accomplices vie for US Presidency
Obama and McCain campaigns fan "war on terrorism" hysteria
By Larry Chin
Global Research, September 7, 2008
In his much-ballyhooed acceptance speech, Barack Obama declared that he would "finish the fight against the terrorists who actually attacked us on 9/11". If Obama wishes to be true to his promise, he could begin with his own running mate, Senator Joe Biden.
Biden and the ISI chief
Biden was one of several top Washington officials who met with Lieutenant General Mahmoud Ahmad, the head of Pakistan’s Inter Services Intelligence (ISI) on and around September 11, 2001.
The ISI is a foreign branch of the CIA. "Al-Qaeda" is a covert operation that is managed by Anglo-American military-intelligence. Ahmad, the "9/11 money man" who delivered funds to alleged lead suicide hijacker Mohammed Atta prior to the attacks, met personally with Biden on September 13, 2001.

Recently, I reported on Barack Obama’s foreign policy advisors and discussed figures such as Lee Hamilton and Tim Roemer, and their potential conflicts of interest and past experience. This week I want to go into the Republican Nominee Senator John McCain and his advisors as well as the Iraq War. Watching the RNC, one can certainly see they are getting as much mileage as possible out of the events of 9/11 and continuing to scare the populous into supporting their platform, and continued war. Democrats and other McCain nay-sayers have been repeatedly saying how McCain has voted with and supported the Bush Administration “ninety percent of the time.” That is true, but it appears to be a lot worse than that when it comes to foreign policy and neo-conservative views of war and imperialism with which McCain agrees and surrounds himself.

Remembering The "Lessons Of September The 11th"
President Bush seems to think that we have a poor memory. He seems to think that we're just not that bright.
We've got news for you President Bush. The "Lessons Of September The 11th" will be something we will NEVER forget.
Since 9/11, we have learned about things like what an "Anthrax Attack" is.
We've learned that our media isn't interested in the truth.
McCain asked about PNAC and 9/11 at town hall
David Edwards and Muriel Kane
Published: Thursday July 10, 2008
During a town hall event in Portsmouth, OH on Wednesday, John McCain was asked by a member of the audience whether his links to the parent organization of the Project for a New American Century explain why he has been reluctant to support calls for a new investigation of 9/11.
The questioner began, "I was curious about a document. Back in September of 2000, the Project for a New American Century, or PNAC, whose members included Dick Cheney, Donald Rumsfeld, Jeb Bush and Paul Wolfowitz, wrote a document entitled 'Rebuilding Americans Defenses.'"
This item was covered on MSNBC Countdown tonight at 8:43 EST
James Moore, contributor to Huffington Post was interviewed with scathing results by Rachel Maddow in for Olbermann.

Charlie Black, senior adviser to John McCain, caused a fluff by saying that a terrorist attack on U.S. soil would be a "big advantage" to his candidate.
No one mentioned that eight years ago, the Project for a New American Century called for "a new Pearl Harbor" that could move the American people to accept the neoconservative vision of militarized global domination. Then 9/11 happened, lifting George W. Bush from the shadows of a disputed election to the heights of a "war presidency."
Even CBS Evening News covered McCain's advider's comment to Fortune that a new terrorist attack on U.S. soil would benefit McCain. Bookmark this video, it's going to come in very handy in a few months...
From Blair Gadsby:
What a ride! The “Hungry for 9/11 Truth” hunger strike has ended and I am on the mend. Time has come to finalize my thoughts on the event and to comment upon what I believe we have accomplished.
As of today, Monday June 16, I have had four full days of recovery and my weight has increased to 136lbs from a low of 124lbs when my fast ended. The first two days of post-fast were rough. I was in no shape to communicate with anyone and I stayed under the constant observation of my dear wife and nurse.
I went to my doctor on Thursday, June 12 and received the results of my lab work, which was obtained on Day 11 of the strike. He was surprised at some of the changes in values since my pre-fast lab work-up, and confirmed that indeed my body was responding to a lack of nutrition. I will be going in for follow-up labs in another couple of weeks. He warned me of some permanent side effects that could result from the fast, most especially in my kidney and liver functions; however, I am once again feeling very healthy and expect a full recovery.
Let me state that I owe a deep debt of gratitude to all those who stood with me, those near and those far away, through the seventeen days of “camping out” at Senator McCain’s Phoenix office. Special mention needs to be made to three outstanding men: John, Larry, and Rick. These fellows saw to it that I was never alone in my vigil. They each stood-up to the plate and committed themselves to my well-being and safety. Each sat for untallied hours with me, and I could not have asked for better company…you guys are the best!

Given that Blair Gadsby has announced the end of his inspiring 17 day hunger strike, it is time for us to fax-bomb John McCain telling him how disappointed we are that he was unwilling to even listen to a citizen of this country who was on a hunger strike for something he believed John McCain should hear. Let’s tell John McCain his allegiances are obvious, and he will definitely not be getting any of our votes. Such a closed mind is not fit to be President of the United States. Usually, a polite tone is preferable, though in this case it only seems natural to let your anger and disappointment known to John McCain. His actions in this case are unforgivable.
Please take two minutes to fax John McCain’s Washington D.C. office. You can send a free fax at http://www.faxzero.com . Let all of Washington hear the news. We are many, we want the truth, and we are never going to stop until we get it.

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.
