JFK Plugs Harrit & Barrett London Event, 7/7/09

I usually don't get along well with dead presidents (call me financially challenged) but JFK decided to make an exception for my upcoming London talk with Niels Harrit. Watch the great new trailer and listen to the amazing presidential endorsement here.

Neils Harrit, in case you missed the biggest story of the year, is the lead author of the new nano-thermite paper that puts the last nail in the coffin of the official story of 9/11. I'm honored to be on the program with him in what promises to be a great event. Stay tuned to this space for updates about my other July speaking dates in the U.K.

JFK's voice from the grave is not only asking us to investigate 9/11, but also to spread the truth about his own murder. For the whole truth about the JFK execution, check out James Douglass's stunning JFK and the Unspeakable.

Listen to my interview with James Douglass here. And watch my son's video of me driving while explaining the JFK assassination to him here. (My son is an avid Richard Linklater fan--note the visual tribute to Waking Life and A Scanner Darkly.)

"Nazi Hydra" Author on Fair and Balanced Tomorrow


Glen Yeadon, author of The Nazi Hydra in America, will be my guest tomorrow on Fair and Balanced. Tune in 9-10 a.m. Pacific (12-1 pm Eastern), NoLiesRadio.org.

"The Nazi Hydra was conceived to fill a gap in the literature by providing a detailed overview of the influence of fascism within the United States. The intent and motivation for such a project was twofold: to sound an ominous warning as to the direction this country is taking at the hands of the right wing and to provide a convenient all encompassing source on fascism in the United States for the reader."

Speculative bubbles, armed-and-dangerous academics

Tonight on Truth Jihad Radio, 5-7 pm Central, http://www.americanfreedomradio.com (to be archived here) I'll start out interviewing Micheal Berger, co-writer/producer of the hot new film Life on the Edge of a Bubble: Blowing the American Dream. (Carol Brouillet's review here). Michael Berger also produced Improbable Collapse: The Demolition of Our Republic, an excellent film about the destruction of the World Trade Center, featuring scientist-heroes Steven Jones, Kevin Ryan, and colleagues.

The second-hour guest will be my fellow "temporarily retired college instructor" Jeffrey Grupp, who has been chased out of not one but two universities for political incorrectness! Jeff is the author of Corporatism: The Secret Government of the New World Order (Progressive Press, 2009) which drew a rave review from Alex Jones when Jeff guested on Alex's show this week.

Jeff and I are like two weirdly-synched sub-atomic particles:

*Jeff meditates on quantum physics & Buddhism while I ponder quantum reality and Islam;

* We both were forced out of Midwestern universities, take on the New World Order globalizers & 9/11 perps in books published by Progressive Press, and host incendiary radio shows;

* But while I am merely armed with a dangerous truth, Jeff is genuinely armed and dangerous! (He got fired from Purdue for carrying in a no-gun zone.)

Catch two minds that academia couldn't handle, but Progressive Press could, tonight on Truth Jihad Radio, 5-7 pm Central, http://www.americanfreedomradio.com.

Bush war crimes trial starts March 2010; nano-thermite scientist speaks out


Saturday, May 16th on Truth Jihad Radio...

Join Splitting-the-Sky (who just set up a trial of George W. Bush for war crimes in March, 2010) and Frank Legge, Ph.D, co-author of Active Thermitic Material Discovered in Dust from the 9/11 World Trade Center Catastrophe! That's Saturday, May 16th, 5-7 pm Central, on http://www.afreeradio.com. Or catch the archive here.

Hot news flash! Splitting-the-Sky, who just finished his court appearance for his arrest-Bush attempt, writes:

"Hello Everyone,
It looks like I will be putting George Bush on trial in March of 2010.
My lawyer Charles Davison argued for a five day trial and got it for spring of next year.
Between now and then we will have to gather all witnesses for this very important trial.
It is my contention that if the court don't shut the proceedings down that we can offer volumes of testimony relative to the Bush regimes employment of torture and murder of 96 arrested detainees in the various "black sites" utilized by the CIA and US military to murder these innocent men and women.
Stay tuned for more information and thanks for your support.
I really want to thank you all who have helped out in various ways."
John "Splitting the Sky" Boncore

For more information watch this trailer for "Splitting-the-Sky vs. George W. Bush: Civil Resistance in the 21st Century": http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fDY4lmsXUBU

My second-hour guest will be Frank Legge, Ph.D., co-author of two scientific papers in mainstream peer-reviewed journals that undermine the official story of what happened to the World Trade Center: 14 Points of Agreement with Official Government Reports on the World Trade Center Destruction and now the clincher, Active Thermitic Material Discovered in Dust from the 9/11 World Trade Center Catastrophe. Dr. Legge is also a co-author of the important paper Extremely high temperatures during the World Trade Center destruction. Together, these three papers should be enough to convince any rational scientist or knowledgeable layperson that the official story of the destruction of the World Trade Center is false, and that controlled demolition is a far better explanation. Feel free to forward these links to any scientific minds you happen to know.

Justice is closing in on the 9/11 perps--no wonder Cheney's been squealing his head off lately! Catch two brave men who are making it happen, Saturday May 16th, 5-7 pm Central, on Truth Jihad Radio, http://www.afreeradio.com.

Ellen Brown a Hit; Mark Anderson Runs with "Blurt-Out" Story

My show today with Ellen Brown generated some excitement. One listener wrote:

Kevin,

Your show with Ellen Brown ( Web of Debt ) was EXCELLENT. Every State legislator should be told of her solution. The states should start their own banks and create money the way all banks do .... fractional reserve method ... to create jobs and fund projects.

Put the people to work. Why are States sending their money to Wall St. investments anyway? They can bank them in their own bank and use that as the basis of making loans for the good of the people.

You are a hero, man!

Thank You,

Steve


And Sander Hicks, another recent radio guest, added:

I am reading Wed of Debt right now, it is exquisitely researched, and her writing style is so stand up cordial, it's just breath taking. tell her I said so and good luck to you both on the show. Allah U Akbar!

For more information on Ellen Brown, check out the links at truthjihad.com/radio.htm.

Meanwhile, Mark Anderson of the American Free Press saw yesterday's blog entry "Lawyer grills Cheney and Rumsfeld on 9/11 blurt-outs" and ran with it. The story below will be appearing in the AFP soon.

Cheney's Words to CBS: Terrorists 'Blew Up' Twin Towers on 9-11

By Mark Anderson

Former Vice President Dick Cheney and former Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld each have made curious 9-11 statements on camera that are well worth pondering. Two particular video clips (see links at bottom) have some observers saying that these comments constitute 9-11 “blurt outs” suggesting inside knowledge of what actually happened on 9-11 – Freudian slips, if you will.

While this phenomenon of slippery lips regarding 9-11 is not altogether new, Cheney’s statement was on Mother’s Day on national television, a day when many moms remember their soldier-sons who died in the war on terror inspired by 9-11.

Cheney, in his May 10 interview with Face the Nation host Bob Schieffer, a veteran CBS journalist, defended the Bush Administration’s water-boarding torture of Al Qaeda suspects and other policies that he insists gleaned sensitive information and kept the nation safe for the eight years since 9-11-01.

While recalling that President Bush in his final days as president was quiet regarding the Obama Administration’s possible actions to overturn Bush-era national security policies, Cheney said he chose to be outspoken in his final days as VP, to make the case that the Bush Administration did things right and that he has “no regrets” about using torture to get the needed information.

Cheney told Schieffer that Obama should not change these policies. And while Cheney noted that there are “two memos that I know of, written by the CIA, that point out the success of those policies,” he went on to say that these memos are classified but should be released to the public and the press, so that the claimed effectiveness of Bush-era national security policies can be evaluated. “The memos do exist, I’ve seen them, I had them in my files at one time,” Cheney told Schieffer, after the host said that the Attorney General “says he does not know of such memos.”

But in the course of the discussion, Cheney used the exact words “blew up the World Trade Center” in reference to the Al Qaeda terrorist network which, according to the official version, masterminded the 9-11 operation but absolutely did not “blow up” the World Trade Center since that implies implanted explosives and an inside job of some kind.

“Khalid Sheikh Mohammed is the man who killed 3,000 Americans on 9-11, blew up the World Trade Center, attacked the Pentagon, tried to blow up the White House and the Capitol Building … an evil man,” is what Cheney told Schieffer, who did not react to the words “blew up.”

Mohammed did not spill the beans on his 9-11 role, claimed Cheney, “until after water boarding.” He also claimed that other planned attacks against the U.S. were stopped by enhanced-interrogation methods.

However, Osama bin Laden – long pitched as the poster boy of terror and mastermind of 9-11 – was not even mentioned by Cheney. The U.S. government has never captured bin Laden in its vast war on terror with hugely expensive, prolonged military operations in Iraq and Afghanistan that have killed tens of thousands of overseas civilians and killed, sickened and maimed many thousands of U.S soldiers, with fatalities well beyond the official war dead of some 4,200 because most battle-sickened troops who die later are not counted as Killed in Action. AMERICAN FREE PRESS in previous reports has estimated the real war dead, conservatively, at 80,000, based on Veterans Administration GWVIS figures online.

“I am … absolutely convinced that we saved thousands or hundreds of thousands of [American] lives,” Cheney also told Schieffer, reflecting on the domestic effects of Bush’s policies. Cheney also said these policies compliment the day that he raised his right hand to take an oath “to defend the United States from all enemies foreign and domestic” and that there was nothing “devious, dishonest, illegal or deceitful” about what was done.

The official story stubbornly maintains that these terrorists, in the New York City part of 9-11, flew two commercial jetliners into the Twin Towers of the WTC and that the impacts and fires brought on a gravitational collapse of the 110-story, steel-framed buildings. The third building that collapsed in the WTC complex was Building 7, which was not hit by a plane but was damaged to some extent by fires and debris. The federal government and big media have always denied that an inside job of any kind took place in these three buildings or in the rest of the broad 9-11 crime, even though Building 7 came down in a little under 7 seconds into its own footprint like a controlled demolition.

As for Rumsfeld, in December 2004, he stated the following from a podium when visiting Iraq, as excerpted in a brief video clip: “And I think all of us have a sense if we imagine the kind of world we would face if the people who bombed the mess hall in Mosul, or the people who did the bombing in Spain, or the people who attacked the United States in New York, shot down the plane over Pennsylvania and attacked the Pentagon …”

The official story is that Islamic terrorists hijacked the plane, Flight 93, and forced it to the ground in rural Shanksville, Pennsylvania merely by seizing control of the cockpit. The claims by some independent researchers that the real plane was shot down at a different (but nearby) location in Pennsylvania have always been dismissed by higher-ups in government and big media. Some say a cruise missile or similar device was shot into the ground, as a diversion, at the official “crash scene” in Shanksville, which left no distinct plane wreckage behind.

Also, in an Oct. 12, 2001 statement by Rumsfeld in Parade magazine, he refers to “the missile” that damaged the Pentagon, even though the official story says Islamic terrorists flew American Airlines Flight 77 into the Pentagon and there was no missile. Again, there was no discernable commercial airliner wreckage. Even the lawn by the impact site was undisturbed.

“Here we're talking about plastic knives and using an American Airlines flight filled with our citizens, and the missile to damage this building and similar (inaudible) that damaged the World Trade Center. The only way to deal with this problem is by taking the battle to the terrorists, wherever they are, and dealing with them,” is what Rumsfeld said, according to Parade, some six months before any missile theories arose among alternative media. Critics, however, claim Rumsfeld was misunderstood and meant the AA flight and missile were one and the same, not separate.

But Cheney’s new statement is a fresh example of a possible unguarded moment in which the truth could slip out. Is this stuff an admission of guilt or inside knowledge? No. But it may be a good reason to bring these former Bush boys into court or before congressional committees for detailed questioning, as architects, engineers, aeronautics specialists, attorneys, former military and intelligence personnel and other credible people question the official 9-11 story in growing numbers.

Lawyer Grills Cheney & Rumsfeld on 9/11 Blurt-Outs

This just in from Vermont attorney Frank Haddleton. -KB


May 10, 2009

Mr. Richard B. Cheney
Mr. Donald H. Rumsfeld

Dear Dick and Don:

Millions of people have reached the conclusion that the official account of 9/11 is actually a deception of monumental proportions. Instead of believing that the Pentagon was struck by a commercial airliner, that United Airlines Flight 93 crashed in Pennsylvania, and that three skyscrapers within the World Trade Center collapsed after being struck by two airliners, they say the evidence shows that the Pentagon was struck by a missile (or something other than a commercial airliner), that Flight 93 was shot down over Pennsylvania, and that the World Trade Center buildings were blown up.

I’m no common conspiracy theorist. To suggest that the official account is a huge deception is completely insane. We know this because if the truth of 9/11 were something different from what you guys reported, key players or facilitators would have already talked. Their guilty consciences – as evil as these people must be -- would have prevented them from keeping their knowledge secret.

But I have been torturing myself trying to understand some comments that you have made. On October 12, 2001, you, Don, told Parade magazine in an interview at the Pentagon that the terrorists had used “a missile to damage this building” (http://www.defenselink.mil/transcript s/transcript.aspx?TranscriptID=3845). This was six months before the publication of Thierry Meyssan’s book, Pentagate, in which the missile theory first gained public attention. On December 27, 2004, you again, Don, said that the terrorists had “shot down the plane over Pennsylvania” (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=x6Xoxaf1Al0 ). And just today, on CBS’s “Face the Nation”, you, Dick, said to Bob Schieffer that we must not forget that Khalid Sheikh Mohammed was the man who “blew up the World Trade Center” on 9/11 (http://www.cbsnews.com/video/watch/?id=5004452n – at about 7:47 – 8:00).

So let’s get this straight. According to your own statements, the Pentagon was struck by a missile, Flight 93 was shot down over Pennsylvania, and the World Trade Center buildings were blown up.

Coming from two extremely intelligent individuals who choose their words with extraordinary care, as you always do, it doesn’t seem likely that these are merely random, inconsequential misstatements. Had they come from George, perhaps they would be less significant, but not from you two.

Is there more that you would like to tell the world about 9/11? Did Osama bin Laden and his operatives launch the missile that hit the Pentagon and did they shoot down Flight 93? If so, how? And how did they gain access to plant the explosives inside the World Trade Center buildings? And why would they want to ensure that these buildings would fall straight down into their footprints rather than topple over to destroy adjacent structures and kill thousands more people?

Please call me any time so that we can discuss this.

Yours sincerely,


Frank B. Haddleton
Attorney at Law

"Give Peace (and Truth) a Chance" radio special w/Kathy Kelly and Ken Jenkins

Kathy Kelly and Ken Jenkins: Saturday 5/9/2009, 5-7 pm Central, AmericanFreedomRadio.com
Call-in number: 5
12-879-3805

To be archived at: http://www.americanfreedomradio.com/Barrett_09.html

Tomorrow I will be interviewing two of the most dedicated and eloquent peace activists you'll ever meet. We'll be discussing their engagement in what may be the most important task of our time: helping war join chattel slavery, witch-hunting, and ritual human sacrifice as outmoded institutions of a bygone barbaric age. (With today's weapons, including mind-control weapons, war is now clearly far more horrific and disgusting than than these earlier institutions ever were.)

Saturday, May 9th, 5-7 pm Central (6-8 p.m. Eastern), on American Freedom Radio: First hour: Ken Jenkins, 911tv.org.

Ken Jenkins is the author of the new article "The Truth is Not Enough: How to Overcome Emotional Barriers to 9/11 Truth" which has been going viral during the past week. An electrical engineer and videographer, Ken has been working for 9/11 truth since 2001, and has worked extensively with Dr. David Ray Griffin. In a recent email, Ken wrote: " I am committed to ending war on this planet. And 9/11 truth is, IMO, the only issue that has the potential to do just that. By opening people's minds to the fact that the so called 'war on terror' was started with a false flag deception mass murder, we open up the space for the greater truth that virtually ALL wars are started based on deceptions, often including the false flag aspect. Thus we have the potential to bust the war game for good."

Second hour: Kathy Kelly of Voices for Creative Nonviolence. Two-time Nobel Peace Prize nominee, Kathy Kelly is the author of Other Lands Have Dreams: from Baghdad to Pekin. A war tax resister and practitioner of civil disobedience/civil resistance, Kathy was threatened with 12 years in prison for bringing medicine and toys to Iraq, and has served terms of nine months in Lexington maximum security prison, and three months at Pekin federal prison, for planting corn on missile silo sites and trespassing on army property at Ft. Benning, Georgia. Last January she was in Gaza during the last days of Operation Cast Lead, and more recently has spent time in Nevada protesting the killer drones at Creech Air Force Base that are used to slaughter civilians in Afghanistan and Pakistan. Though I met her in person during my congressional campaign last year, this will be her first appearance on my radio show.

Peoria 9/11 Truth Lecture: A Response to al-Marri Frame-Up

On Thursday, torture victim Ali al-Marri -- the only "enemy combattant" held in the US -- entered a coerced guilty plea in a Peoria, Illinois courthouse.

This Sunday, May 3rd, I will be lecturing on 9/11 and the "War on Terror" in Peoria.

I will be offering pre-publication review copies of my forthcoming book Questioning the War on Terror: A Primer for Obama Voters. Author and empire critic William Blum, the thinking man's Noam Chomsky, says of Questioning the War on Terror:

"Kevin Barrett is taking on a big sacred cow, one that hardly anyone in the mainstream media or in Congress would dare to seriously question -- The War on Terror, which in the past eight years has joined the flag, motherhood and apple pie as things an American dares question only at the risk of being labeled "unpatriotic" or a "supporter of terrorism". Barrett delves into many of the assumptions behind the The War on Terror: the myths, the lies, the propaganda. The reader should be prepared to question some of his favorite political beliefs."
