See the film everyone is talking about...
in Portland 7pm Thu Nov 2nd - St Francis Dining Hall - 330 SE 11th Ave
Whatever you think you know about our election systems or Congresswoman Cynthia McKinney, this film will make you question further why the news media fails to accurately inform the public. Directed by GNN's Ian Inaba, creator of Eminem's "Mosh" music video, American Blackout critically examines the contemporary tactics used to control our democratic process and silence voices of political dissent.
Many have heard of the alleged voting irregularities that occurred during the presidential elections of 2000 and 2004. Until now, these incidents have gone under- reported and are commonly written-off as insignificant rumors or unintentional mishaps resulting from an overburdened election system.
American Blackout chronicles the recurring patterns of voter disenfranchisement from Florida 2000 to Ohio 2004 while following the story of Georgia Congresswoman Cynthia McKinney. Mckinney not only took an active role investigating these election debacles, but has found herself in the middle of her own after publicly questioning the Bush Administration about the 9/11 terrorist attacks.
Featuring: Congressional members John Conyers, John Lewis, Stephanie Tubbs-Jones, Bernie Sanders and jounalists Greg Palast and Bob Fitrakis.

9/11 Widows Want Rice/Tenet Documents Released By Jason Leopold / Truthout / October 25, 2006 A handful of 9/11 widows have started an online petition in hopes of gathering the public's support to force the White House to declassify documents related to a July 10, 2001, meeting between Condoleezza Rice and former CIA director George Tenet in which the two discussed a pending attack on US soil by al-Qaeda. Details of the meeting were first disclosed a month ago in the book State of Denial by Washington Post assistant managing editor and author Bob Woodward. In a letter posted on petitononline.com, Patty Casazza, Monica Gabrielle, Mindy Kleinberg, and Lorie Van Auken said that details of the meeting have been confirmed by the State Department and the White House warrants declassification of documents related to the meeting. The widows take issue with Woodward's exclusive access to officials' knowledgeable about the Rice/Tenet meeting and the possibility that he may have been privy to classified documents and transcripts in order to craft a narrative for his book. "If Bob Woodward can have access to this information, why can't we, as American citizens and victims' family members?" Van Auken wrote in an email to Truthout, adding that the families of the thousands of people who perished on 9/11 are entitled to know what Bush administration officials knew prior to the 9/11 attacks and when they knew it. "Given that much of the July 10, 2001, meeting has already been made public ... it is unacceptable to continue to keep these documents and transcripts hidden from the American public's view." The widows, in their online petition addressed to the media and members of Congress, renewed their call for the declassification of the redacted 28 pages of the Joint Inquiry Into the Terrorist Attacks of September 11, 2001, and the CIA Inspector General's Report, "CIA Accountability With Respect to the 9/11 Attacks."
9/11 Call for Truth Sign the petition It has become abundantly clear to a majority of the American people, not to mention the rest of the world, that the Bush administration has utterly failed to conduct a satisfactory investigation into the events of 9/11. There has been no satisfactory explanation for the failure of our air defenses on that day, and the suspicion that the government itself was complicit in the attacks is widespread and growing rapidly. Since the 9/11 attacks have been used by the Bush administration to justify its so-called "war on terror" at home and abroad, causing the loss of fundamental civil liberties as well as tens of thousands of lives, the failure to properly investigate those attacks is inexcusable and intolerable. We are bitterly disappointed and equally outraged by the failure of the mainstream media and Congress to demand action by the executive branch befitting of a democratic republic. We therefore plead, with the utmost urgency, that the American people do everything possible to elect people to office who will stand up to those in power, defend our right to know the full truth about the events of Sept. 11, 2001, and restore peace and our constitutional rights.

The Democrats and Republicans are the same in one respect - that speaks directly to your dilemma regarding the silence (complacency / complicity) of Democrats.
Only men of low moral character are allowed through the AIPAC filter into the political arena. This virtually assures that they will be suseptible to bribery, blackmail, or both.
Sexpionage is a tool of Israel. They use it to control the political agenda in the United States.
The Bush Crime Family controls the CIA - still flying loads ok coke and heroine into Florida aboard Gulfstreanm jets every day. Why did the administration stand by impotently while Israel committed genocide in Lebanon?
Israel's Comverse owns the best wiretapping system in America, and can blackmail anyone they choose at will. That's how they control EVERYTHING. They have the evidence of Cheney's complicity with Mossad relative to 9/11. Bush 41 is the king pin, and is totally being blackmailed.
They recorded Bill Clinton having phone sex with their "swallow" Monica - and the next thing you know, Clinton reverses his policy on Gaza and pardons Marc Rich upon his exit.
This isn't rocket science - this is B L A C K M A I L. Cross them and wind up dead. Ask Chandra Levy. Put Lieberman and Chertoff under oath and let's get to the bottom of this.

by Michael Caine / FTW Energy Affairs Editor
ALMOST no one who opposes the idea of U.S. government involvement in 9/11 has seriously confronted Crossing The Rubicon by Mike Ruppert. And sadly, many in the 9/11 truth movement who do embrace the notion of U.S. government involvement will not deal with Rubicon. This 9/11 report points to one notable exception to the latter, Bill Weinberg, and since Weinberg’s opinion was first published at Guerilla News Network, FTW is posting this story for free on our site because it will also be posted on the GNN site. While Weinberg did at least deal with the contents of Rubicon, his arguments are extremely fallacious as Michael Kane explains in this report.
Rubicon remains the most impeccably-documented and thoroughly-researched analysis of 9/11 but also the most ignored and least confronted. Unlike the physical evidence of 9/11, i.e. “Were there explosives in the buildings? Did a plane hit the Pentagon?”—evidence which has been destroyed and cannot be proven in a court of law, Rubicon reveals the military, legal, and energy-resource evidence behind 9/11 that cannot be tampered with because it is historical fact and could easily be proven in a court of law—IF there were any courts in the United States where such evidence could receive a fair and impartial hearing without sabotage or assassination. —CB]
October 9th 2006, 3:56PM [PST] – New York – Recently Bill Weinberg has trashed everyone who believes 9/11 was perpetrated by the U.S. Government in a report published at GNN.tv.
He makes some valid points regarding bad analysis and sloppy documentation put forth by some who claim to be 9/11 “skeptics” searching for “truth.” But where Weinberg falls flat on his face is in his evasive analysis of the most important area of research surrounding 9/11: The multiple 9/11 war games.
In his analysis of the war games, Weinberger never once mentions FromTheWilderness.com, Mike Ruppert or Crossing the Rubicon.
FTW is used to getting attacked, in many ways. David Corn and Alexander
Cockburn spent a good amount of time attacking Ruppert from 2002 to 2004. Cockburn denies that global warming exists or is a serious threat to humanity.
Unlike Cockburn, I respect Weinberg, and find him to be an intelligent and valid analyst of current events and history. There are even two tactics Weinberg uses in his report against official complicity in the 9/11 attacks that I respect.
First, he begins his argument in a way I have not seen used by our detractors in the past. He admits that official governmental conspiracies exist, and it would be “irresponsible not to consider the possibility that elements of the CIA and/or Bush administration had a hand in the events of September 11, 2001.”
Secondly, he does something no one else will do any longer when attacking those who say 9/11 was an inside job: He mentions Mike Ruppert.
Since Crossing the Rubicon was published, all of FTW’s favorite detractors (Corn, Cockburn et al.) have shut their mouths, no longer mentioning our work especially as it pertains to the crimes of 9/11. They can’t dispute our case so they have no other choice.
Weinberg was brave enough to invoke the name that others now steer clear of, but he did not seriously challenge our case at all. Instead he focuses on minor disputes that he had with FTW’s Oh Lucy! timeline four years ago. These points are not in anyway central to the case against Dick Cheney as laid out in Crossing the Rubicon. The main point Weinberg drives home is over the interpretation of a French report published in Le Figaro. The report claims bin Laden met with CIA officials during his stay in a Dubai hospital shortly before 9/11. Le Figaro has never retracted the story. Weinberg says Ruppert translated
a French word in the report incorrectly. Ruppert responded at length to
Weinberg regarding this issue at the time, and his response was partially in French. Weinberg did not reprint Mike Ruppert’s response in full in his recent report; he selectively quoted from it.
Regardless of who is right in terms of such minutiae (I cannot truly say since I don’t speak French), this debate is meaningless and has no impact on FTW’s central case naming Dick Cheney as the prime suspect in the crimes of 9/11. To prove such a case in a court of law you must show MEANS, MOTIVE and OPPORTUNITY. When Weinberg finally does try to take a swing at our case in his report, he doesn’t even mention us!
Instead he uses Alex Jones’ extremely flawed and inaccurate analysis of the 9/11 war games as a straw man, easily knocked down. It is simple to win a debate on fact checking against Alex Jones, (Prison Planet) who has continually co-opted FTW’s investigation into these matters without ever mentioning our work or representing it accurately. Weinberg writes:
(Alex Jones says) “The CIA was conducting drills of flying hijacked planes into the WTC and Pentagon at 8:30 in the morning.”
But this last claim is not verified. In fact, PP’s own embedded link on the drills goes to its page delineating several Pentagon (not CIA) exercises scheduled for the morning of 9-11, including one (“Vigilant Guardian”) that concerned a multiple hijacking scenario—but none concerning “drills of flying hijacked planes into the WTC and Pentagon.” The only one which came close to “drills of flying hijacked planes into the WTC and Pentagon” actually concerned such a scenario at the Chantilly, Va., offices of the DoD’s National Reconnaissance Office.
The apparent fact of the Vigilant Guardian exercise is used by numerous
conspiracy websites (such as the modestly named WhatReallyHappened.com)
as evidence of an Air Force “stand-down” on 9-11. It is well-established (and not actually contested by PP or What Really Happened) that fighter jets were, in fact, scrambled from Langely (sic) Air Force Base in Virginia and Falmouth AFB in Massachusetts on the morning of 9-11. Why they failed to find the hijacked planes is a legitimate question, and it may have to do with confusion arising from Vigilant Guardian. But this is not the same as a “stand-down,” which the American Heritage dictionary defines as “a relaxation from a state of readiness or alert.” Yet “Truth” activists continue to espouse the “stand-down” as dogma.
For anyone who has read Crossing the Rubicon, Weinberg’s analysis is terrible. Let me first correct the straw man lie from Alex Jones that Weinberg so easily knocked down. The CIA drill on 9/11 was headed by the National Reconnaissance Organization (NRO) which simulated an emergency response to an aircraft crashing into its headquarters at 8:30 am (precisely the time an almost identical scenario “turned real” at the World Trade Center and later at the Pentagon). This drill was coordinated with local law enforcement and emergency response organizations. So the NRO – the hi-tech headquarters for the CIA – was very well prepared to respond just in case a plane happened to crash into it on 9/11. Mike Ruppert wrote the following opinion regarding
this drill on page 382 of Crossing the Rubicon:
The NRO is probably one of the top ten high-value targets in the country. Nobody (in the US Government or military) wanted it hit, but if the (9/11) plans went awry it just might be hit. Everyone knows that there are no guarantees when you start something this big. Things get out of hand; someone fails to follow the plan; loyalties change; people screw up their mission, the fog of war. It would be prudent to have the NRO drill underway, with police, fire, paramedics, and everything else there just in case. Good thinking!
All Weinberg has ‘proven’ is that Alex Jones is not a reliable source. That’s no newsflash to FTW readers. But what he doesn’t do is take on the documentation laid out in Crossing the Rubicon that shows not only were there multiple, conflicting Air Force war games running on 9/11, but that Dick Cheney was in charge of managing them.1 The 9/11 war games created the opportunity for the crimes of that day to unfold as planned.

Yesterday i coincidently was seated next to a young guy at a temporary agency to watch a video on shipping hazardous material. We started talking about the anthrax originating from a US military facility and 911. Not knowing if he was even pro-bush he told me he was a weapons expert as which included explosives with a backround in physics who was stationed in Afganistan BEFORE the US invasion of IRAQ. He told me when his special forces unit watched the World Trade Towers II and I fall, they knew that explosives brought down those building. He did not see World Trade Tower building #7 which fell 10 hours later although not hit by an aircraft one block away. I asked how he knew? He said because of simple physics and the smoke from the blasting caps on the lower floors prior to their collapse..INSIDE JOB.

9/11 INSPIRATION (from the newsletter of Mia Hamel) To subscribe go here: http://visitor.constantcontact.com/email.jsp?m=1101377362823&lang=en 9/11 Truth is a keyhole into consciousness. We search our hearts and minds for meaning and inspiration to effectively spread 9/11 truth. As we examine our inner landscape and its impact on the exterior world, the connections offer infinite opportunities for change, and choices of attitude and behavior. We profoundly sense our interconnectedness. 1. THE SHAMBHALA PROPHESY Coming to us across twelve centuries, the prophecy about the coming of the Shambhala warriors illustrates the challenges we face in the Great Turning and the strengths we can bring to it. Tibetan friends in India have come to believe that this ancient prophecy referred to this very planet-time. The signs it foretold are recognizable now, signs of great danger. There are varying interpretations of this prophecy. Some portray the coming of the kingdom of Shambhala as an internal event, a metaphor for one's inner spiritual journey independent of the world around us. Others present it as an entirely external event that will unfold independently of what we may choose to do or what our participation may be in the healing of our world. A third version of the prophecy was given by teacher Choegyal Rinpoche of the Tashi Jong community in northern India: "There comes a time when all life on Earth is in danger. Great barbarian powers have arisen. Although these powers spend their wealth in preparations to annihilate one another, they have much in common: weapons of unfathomable destructive power, and technologies that lay waste our world. In this era, when the future of sentient life hangs by the frailest of threads, the kingdom of Shambhala emerges. You cannot go there, for it is not a place; it is not a geopolitical entity. It exists in the hearts and minds of the Shambhala warriors. Nor can you recognize a Shambhala warrior when you see her or him, for they wear no uniforms or insignia, and they carry no banners. They have no barricades on which to climb to threaten the enemy, or behind which they can hide to rest or regroup. They do not even have any home turf. Always they must move on the terrain of the barbarians themselves. "Now the time comes when great courage — moral and physical courage — is required of the Shambhala warriors, for they must go into the very heart of the barbarian power, into the pits and pockets and citadels where the weapons are kept, to dismantle them. To dismantle weapons, in every sense of the word, they must go into the corridors of power where decisions are made. "The Shambhala warriors have the courage to do this because they know that these weapons are manomaya, or 'mind-made.' Made by the human mind, they can be unmade by the human mind. The Shambhala warriors know that the dangers threatening life on Earth are not visited upon us by any extraterrestrial power, satanic deities, or preordained evil fate. They arise from our own decisions, our own lifestyles, and our own relationships. "So in this time, the Shambhala warriors go into training. They train in the use of two weapons ... The weapons are compassion and insight. Both are necessary. "You have to have compassion because it gives you the juice, the power, the passion to move. It means not to be afraid of the pain of the world. Then you can open to it, step forward, act. But that weapon by itself is not enough. It can burn you out, so you need the other: insight, into the radical interdependence of all phenomena. With that wisdom you know that it is not a battle between 'good guys' and 'bad guys,' because the line between good and evil runs through the landscape of every human heart. With insight into our profound inter-relatedness — our deep ecology — you know that actions undertaken with pure intent have repercussions throughout the web of life, beyond what you can measure or discern. By itself, that insight may appear too cool, too conceptual, to sustain you and keep you moving, so you need the heat of compassion. Together, insight and compassion can sustain us as agents of wholesome change. They are gifts for us to claim now in the healing of our world. "These two weapons of the Shambhala warrior represent two essential aspects of the Work that Reconnects. One is the recognition and experience of our pain for the world. The other is the recognition and experience of our radical, empowering interconnectedness with all life." http://www.hopedance.org/archive/38/articles/150.html 2. OPEN YOUR HEART TO GAIA Step 1- Take a few moments to open to the beauty and fragility of our Home Planet and to admit to yourself how deeply you love this planet, how terribly sad you are about so much of what is going on right now and how very afraid you are of all that seems to wait for us in the near future. Step 2 - Hold a vision of the world you want to live in - the world you want to leave behind for the children born today, a world of justice and harmony and breathtaking beauty. Step 3 - Affirm your intention to do YOUR part to heal our home by holding it, and everyone in it, in love in all you think and say and do. Ask quietly "What is MY part today in bringing the Great Turning into full manifestation?" Step 4 - Trust that there is a Guiding Consciousness Of Infinite Love and Wisdom in and around you - permeating everything and everyone everywhere - that wants you to feel safe and be happy. Imagine that you invite this Consciousness to show you how to live fearlessly for peace and in peace today. Ask for its help. Then let it help guide what you think and say and do throughout the days that lie ahead... 3. GREAT TURNING GUIDELINES Come From Gratitude To be alive in this beautiful, self-organizing universe--to participate in the dance of life with senses to perceive it, lungs that breathe it, organs that draw nourishment from it--is a wonder beyond words. Gratitude for the gift of life is the primary wellspring of all religions, the hallmark of the mystic, the source of all true art. Furthermore, it is a privilege to be alive in this time when we can choose to take part in the self-healing of our world. Don't Be Afraid of the Dark This is a dark time, filled with suffering and uncertainty. Like living cells in a larger body, it is natural that we feel the trauma of our world. So don't be afraid of the anguish you feel, or the anger or fear, for these responses arise from the depth of your caring and the truth of your interconnectedness with all beings. To suffer with is the literal meaning of compassion. Dare To Vision Out of this darkness a new world can arise, not to be constructed by our minds so much as to emerge from our dreams. Even though we cannot see clearly how it's going to turn out, we are still called to let the future into our imagination. We will never be able to build what we have not first cherished in our hearts. Roll Up Your Sleeves Many people don't get involved in the Great Turning because there are so many different issues, which seem to compete with each other. Shall I expose 9/11 Truth, promote adherence to the Geneva Conventions or work on voting reform? The truth is that all aspects of the current crisis reflect the same mistake of setting ourselves apart and using others for our gain, the prevalence of deception and the betrayal of trust. So to heal one aspect helps the others to heal as well. Just find what you love to work on and take joy in that. No need to try to do it alone. Link up with others; you'll spark each others' ideas and sustain each others' energy. Act Your Age Since every particle in your body goes back to the first flaring forth of space and time, the 'Big Bang', you truly are as old as the universe. So when you are lobbying at your congressperson's office, visiting your local firehouse with a 9/11 DVD, debating on a call in show with a government shill about the Popular Mechanics article, or rallying the activists to get out there and make their presence known, you are doing that not out of some personal whim, but in the full authority of your 15 billion years of existence. Mother Earth needs us to stand up for her now to preserve our heritage and build our shared future. Her stewardship is our larger mission.
