video: Mary Starrett 9/11+ TRUTH remarks raise storm



AUDIO ONLY WILLAMETTE WEEK article by Julie Sabatier comment on Willy Week piece by pdx911truth member Bill Coones

Mary Starretts presentatation at the PDX 9-11 Truth meetup was a welcome one and it goes to show that there are many different types of people realizing that there are many legiitimate questions regarding the 9-11 event. Just watch as the 9-11 group changes its meetup location from the present Laughing Horse Books to a more neutral place to meet. This reflects the makeup of the group and not tolerating intolerence from anyone including the left.

The day when all the people redilly accept our Governments explaination about what it is doing and why has passed, and rightly so. With an unpopular war happening now and a divided country and opposed points of view airing in public, this is just another example of free speech and right of assembly guaranteed by our constitution. In these times of take away legislation of our privacy and civil rights by our own government more and more people are thinking like Mrs Starrett, not of either party and going back to our roots in Democracy that were laid out by the founders. Controlled and biased mass media and newspapers now have competition from alternative news sources on the internet and local groups. Now watch the powers that be try and take that away too. Either you believe in free speech for everyone or you do not believe in free speech.

Mary Starretts presentation can be seen on 'Google Video' on the internet. Enter "PDX 9-11 Truth" and our local groups presentations will show up on the search engine. Decide for yourself and listen to the uncensored words, isnt that what gathering information and making decisions is all about in a Free and Democratic society? Or is ours a "Free and Democratic" society still? More and more people are out of lockstep with the official Government and media dictums and having their say. Bill Coones (local 9-11 videographer)

Republic Broadcasting Network ALL SERVICES SUSPENDEDrbnlive.com

FROM RBNLIVE.COM WEBSITE datelined Austin TX 01/28/2007 13:29:15 intro summary by Glen Owen summary This morning when I went to download rbnlive.com webRadio programs I had missed yesterday--Webster Tarpley in particular--I found a message at rbnlive saying that all operations have been temporarily though indefinitely suspended, pending legal remedy for violent threats John Stadtmiller has made to rbnlive.com staff and directors. Unfortunately our friend Alex Ansary got caught in the middle of this mess though no fault of his own. from rbnlivecom website today John Stadtmiller terrorizes RBN workers - (Menaces workers with firearm at staff meeting, and threatens to send police to workers' home) (Updated: 01/28/2007 13:29:15) I, Wes Perkins, am issuing this public affidavit as a warning to the public and as a protection to myself and my family from an individual who rules by intimidation, threats and fear. "Don't listen to those crazy people, there's no danger to you here" retorts John and Sandra Stadtmiller as they try to explain away an incident in the summer of 2006 where John brings a gun into a staff meeting. Four eyewitnesses at the meeting verified that John brought a gun into a staff meeting after a short break, and set the gun down on the table, giving it a slight spin as he put it down. "I was startled to see the gun, and didn't know his intentions" states one of the eye witnesses. John and Sandra even blame the publicity of this event on, and continue to harass, a former employee who quit shortly after the incident, even though that employee wasn't even present in the room when this happened. That employee was recently told, "you better lay low". On a second occasion another eyewitness to a separate incident observed John showing off his handgun, and he accidentally dropped it. "That's how people get shot", said the witness. Months earlier I was at a Denny's restaurant and two separate people who've had dealings with Stadtmiller mentioned about how Stadtmiller out of the blue had pointed firearms at them telling them that they had better do as he says. Those two people are Alex Jones and Keith Perry. Alex was telling his gun story while eating his eggs when Keith interjected that John had done the same thing to him. Alex's story, which he recounted on Jack Blood's radio show on January 11, 2007; "I was at this guy's house (Stadtmiller's), and I'm sitting there doing a radio show with him, and all of a sudden I look up and he's pointing a Walter PPK handgun at me, and he has this maniacal look of pleasure, and I jumped up and said 'you'd better put that down - you've got a problem and I'm not going to be around you anymore'. And so I just went away." Alex has also told me about John admitting to having a hand in getting Mark Koernke thrown into prison, as well as being involved in the breakup of the Michigan Militia. On two separate occasions while Alex was co-hosting the Saturday show with Stadtmiller, John told Alex not to defend Koernke - "because he's bad. He messed with me and you saw what happened to him. I'm glad he's in prison." Alex Jones had heard this from credible people in Michigan, but had never believed it until hearing it directly from Stadtmiller. Alex told me about a situation at a gun show where John and Sandra tried to get Alex to do a straw man gun purchase for John *(clarification - John told Alex that he had a record and couldn't buy a gun, so he needed Alex to purchase one for him), which Alex refused because it was against the law and the whole thing had a sting feel to it - there was a BATF guy drifting within a few feet from Alex when John asked Alex to purchase the gun for him. When Alex refused, John turned red with anger, and then suddenly became calm, whipped out his driver license, then bought the same handgun that John later pointed at Jones. Stadtmiller begged Alex to go to the gun show with him, and the whole thing had a feeling of a setup. It felt like a setup because John said he couldn't buy a gun and then bought one minutes later with total confidence. In classic BATF stings that have been run at the Saxet Gun and Knife Show in the past, the BATF poses as someone who cannot buy a gun and then tries to get someone to buy one for them. There have been thousands of these cases across the country. These activities represent the majority of BATF stings. So Alex says that John may have been just trying to get him to buy the gun in his name for some other reason, which is bad enough, but it does mirror thousands of federal stings. So you decide. John had just had a highly publicized gun arrest the year before, so this would also fit the classic pattern of how someone is inducted into snitchdom. Attempting to buy a gun for someone who is a felon or who is posing as a felon or anyone who is barred from owning firearms under the 1968 gun control act, is a serious federal crime and you could spend up to ten years in prison for one offense. This would have been the end of Alex Jones - just like Mark Koernke. Just this past week Alex Jones told me how Stadtmiller called him on his cell phone after 1 am, sounding drunk or drugged, and Stadtmiller told him "when I pointed that gun at you, you were little and scared". Stadtmiller also said that he would like to beat Alex's wife. Back to my situation. I'm finally getting fed up with everything that I'm witnessing at RBN and want to put some distance between them and myself. Stadtmiller wants me to "turn over all of my technology and property" that manages the RBN archives. I'm telling them that they need to replace it with their own technology, so that they fully understand and can manage it properly. My technology is intellectual property and would take too much time to train others to manage. Also, another thing I did was move out of a house that I was renting from someone who I learned through eyewitnesses was passing personal information about me to John. Threatening to snitch out a patriot: Now, I have a couple of outstanding warrants due to my protesting the National ID card a few years ago, and getting thrown into jail. I was charged with failure to show ID, then with a stacked charge on top of that of Interference with Public Duty. The underlying charge of failure to ID was dismissed, but the stacked charge was never dismissed even though it no longer had the underlying charge to support it. After many court appearances, and after realizing how the courts were nothing but a railroad job, I finally missed a court date and hence the warrants. This week I have confirmation from a couple of RBN staffers who have overheard John and my former landlord discussing how they know where I moved to and will call the police on my warrants if I don't cooperate. Others warned me that John Stadtmiller was a snitch - now I have confirmation of the fact. I'm not going to live in terror; it's time that someone stands up to the bully and his henchmen. I'm through dealing with this evil man, John Stadtmiller. I'm also through dealing with his right-hand man, whom I also once believed to be an upstanding patriot. I'm ashamed to have ever gotten involved with these evil creatures, and am sorry for helping Stadtmiller succeed to the extent where he has caused this community so much pain and suffering. Please distribute this story far and wide so that it may always be accessible to future would-be associates and/or supporters of John Stadtmiller, and may they right now be warned. Run...run away really fast! A little more personal history: I woke up to the new world order corruption in our society in 2000 listening to local patriot radio. In January 2004, talk show host John Stadtmiller was kicked off of the Genesis Communications Network. Days later, I offered to help get Stadtmiller back on the air on shortwave and some local patriot radio outlets. Over the following months we produced Stadtmiller's daily two-hour radio show out of his home using a temporary makeshift studio, and during this time Stadtmiller setup his new radio network RBN (the Republic Broadcasting Network). I brought a fair amount of my own computer equipment into the mix to assist in setting up RBN quickly - at no charge to RBN. To date I have not been compensated for the hardware that still resides at RBN. The equipment amounted to between $2,000 and $4,000 in value at the time of install. I had let Stadtmiller know from the start that I am a contractor and I own my own materials. All of my equipment at RBN has my labels on it, and now the locks have reportedly been changed to prevent me from having access to my equipment. After the launch of RBN in June of 2004, I wrote the software to automate and manage RBN's archives and streaming, which has brought RBN to the forefront of the patriot movement as the only network with such a complete and high-quality streaming and archiving system. To date I have continued to provide this service to RBN. My system has allowed RBN to provide an incredible archive of information for a relatively low cost - only a small fraction of RBN's shortwave budget. I have also been contracted to do board-op duties producing live radio shows on the network from the beginning. This gave me an up-close, insider look at the personalities behind the microphones at RBN. My alias for on-air purposes was "Producer Paul Martin". As producer I screened thousands of calls and produced thousands of hours of shows on RBN. During my tenure at RBN I have witnessed dozens of temper tantrums by John Stadtmiller, including, but not limited to: shouting and hanging up on people from listeners to vendors to fellow broadcasters, kicking trash cans across the office, slamming doors, racing away on his Harley motorcycle and kicking his wife's dog in the throat. I have noticed that from day one producing his show he often spoke in a derogatory manner on his radio show about GCN (Genesis Communications Network), some of GCN's advertisers and sponsors and many of GCN's talk show hosts. I have personally witnessed this hundreds of times, and have always felt it was in poor taste, was divisive and had no place on the air. On a couple of occasions he even said on air that GCN was going under. I have also witnessed many occasions where the local patriot outlets would make programming decisions that were not always favorable to RBN, and Stadtmiller would erupt into a fit of rage against them, sometimes taking his complaints to the airwaves - insulting the management of those outlets on the air. I've always felt this was short-sided of Stadtmiller, as the local patriot outlets would air RBN's programming, including RBN's commercials, which directly benefited RBN, with no compensation whatsoever being made to the local outlets - they are not-for-profit and are only interested in waking up as many folks as possible to the truths of the dire condition of the nation. I've come to realize that Stadtmiller is an expert wordsmith. He speaks on his radio show in such a way that folks who don't know him too well will think that he is the father of the patriot movement and that he controls and has founded all of the various radio outlets where his show is heard. He has often done entire shows where he would criticize listeners for not doing enough, usually at times where the finances were tight. I've also witnessed folks coming into the office to donate and would either thank Stadtmiller for airing Alex Jones or thank Stadtmiller for the local patriot outlets, neither of which are associated with Stadtmiller. He would nonetheless accept the money without any correction or clarification whatsoever that those outlets or talk show hosts are not affiliated with his network. I also personally know of folks who have loaned tens of thousands of dollars to RBN and have not been paid back. Stadtmiller for the first couple of years of RBN's existence often wordsmithed on the air about how he founded the GCN network. When finally confronted about this publicly by Alex Jones and by GCN owner Ted Anderson, John modified his language to say that he founded the network that later became GCN. This is still not quite correct, from the multiple sources that I have heard from who have first-hand knowledge of the facts. There was a disturbing situation involving talk show host Chris Gerner regarding donations. Chris had found a large money donor who was willing to donate $15,000 to RBN solely because Chris was on the network covering Agenda-21 issues. The donor was willing to continue with donations given that Chris remain on the network doing what he always does. At the time the money came in, money was otherwise tight and RBN applied the money to various back bills, but still insisted that Chris personally pay for his own shortwave, disregarding that the donor specifically donated due to Chris. I witnessed similar trends on multiple occasions regarding the shortwave bills. It seemed Stadtmiller would entice new hosts to join without a written contract or specific details being ironed out regarding who would pay for shortwave time. Then if a host became boring to Stadtmiller, he would start billing the host for his shortwave time. If the host otherwise remained a "benefit" to the network, RBN would cover the cost without argument. Chris Gerner ultimately lost interest in doing the show and eventually quit over this issue. The money-related issues mentioned above may not be so alarming in and of themselves, however, there is no accountability at RBN. RBN operates like a commercial entity in that it airs a full complement of commercials, but also operates as a non-profit and accepts donations. There is no board to oversee the operations, and in my opinion there is way too much overhead there. During startup he turned down a lot of money where folks wanted some sort of oversight over how their money would be managed, and only accepted money with relatively no strings attached. I've witnessed Stadtmiller spending money impulsively on a number of occasions. In mid-2006 Stadtmiller brought in a fellow to assist in looking at the internal operations at RBN to attempt to flush out the problems and vision-build. During the numerous meetings I had suggested that we need a board of directors to buffer Stadtmiller's impulsive decision-making and provide some accounting oversight over the financial operations. Every time the subject came up Stadtmiller got very fidgety and irritable. The board never materialized and RBN continues to be managed in an impulsive manner. Stadtmiller, on his Wednesday show, January 10, 2007, came out with a vicious attack piece of lies about Alex Jones. Although he never named Jones, he played Jones' bumper music underneath his rant and used a number of linking phrases that no patriot with any length in the movement would mistake as referring to any other than Alex Jones. John indicated that he had hired a private investigator for the previous 60 days to look into an egomaniacal talk show host, and he even knew who your favorite talk show hosts' drug dealer is. Alex has stated that this is a complete lie and challenges Stadtmiller to produce his proof. While John refers to drug use by Alex, it is actually John who is witnessed doing drugs by talk show host Jack Blood, as stated on Blood's January 11, 2007 show. Incidentally, John also refers to me several times in the hit piece, as the non-loyal staffer. Mr. John Stadtmiller, I am loyal to the movement. Many in this movement know this, because they know my work and me. I assist many entities technically in their endeavors to wake people up and spread the truth of what's going on in our nation. I'm only loyal to you to the extent that you do good work - beyond that - I have no use for you. With this last hit piece you may have just put your foot in your mouth so deep that it will take the Jaws of Life to extract. You have had many good and talented employees, contractors and talk show hosts come and go through RBN - many of whom were chased away by your pompous, arrogant and demeaning personality. You have reversed the hard work of many good and well-meaning people over the past few years that I have witnessed. As I've alluded to earlier, I've literally built Stadtmiller's network. I own the domain names rbnlive.com and rbnlive.net, and I want nothing further to do with a spider's web that is meant to catch well-meaning patriots like flies. As of Friday I requested to be paid by proxy through a trusted co-worker and they refused to hand him my payment. Effective today, Saturday, January 27, 2007, I am disconnecting all of my equipment and services that I own and provide to RBN. I am disconnecting all services that I provide through my equipment that is being held hostage, and I am removing myself from this monster's sphere of influence. I am simply severing all my connections to RBN - as a free man it is my right to not provide services to a user who has terrorized my family and others in the community. John Stadtmiller I am finished dealing with you - so have a better life, but may God's judgment deal with you accordingly for your wrongdoings. Lord, help us all, and heal our land and this movement.

Got pus? Wealthy to keel over from expensive disease

Summary of the KBOO am news for Monday, January 22nd, 2007.

1. Now that we are actually dipping a big toe into the dark waters of annual legislative sessions, the State of Oregon is just running wild. Next up: Democrats and Republicans are talking about earlier primaries. (Let's just get it over with and secede... .)

2. One of Oregon's Own is off to Guantanamo Bay... .No, he did not get picked up by over-zealous Feds and shipped to Gitmo for questioning. Brigadier General Cameron Crawford is going to be on the other side of the razor wire running the show.

3. A salvage company from Florida is going to have a go at pulled the New Carissa off Coos Bay's North Spit. I suspect they'd be happy to just leave it there were it not for the effort to site a Liquefied Natural Gas terminal in the vicinity... ..Hulks of wrecked ships look bad on the covers of corporate annual reports to shareholders... .

4. The federal government has given the go-ahead to a new plan to save Chinook salmon from Puget Sound. If Puget Sound doesn't stop killing fish, the salmon are going to be extinct - and sooner rather than later.

5. Got Pus? Safeway says that milk suppliers for the grocer's Northwest processing plants have stopped using recombinant bovine growth hormone (RBGH). Dairymen inject the stuff into cows to make them produce an unnatural amount of milk, augmented by pus. The huge quantities of milk irritate the animals' teats causing... ..Well, just don't drink the stuff... .

6. Salem is testing the old Boise-Cascade facility site in the downtown area for dioxins and other highly toxic contaminants. Actually the company is paying for the testing just as it is about to cut and run leaving hundreds of people without jobs. Why test when you're leaving? Because the city wants to turn the site into condos and up-scale businesses which won't cause the wealthy to keel over from some expensive disease... .at least not until they move out...

7. What's That Rustling I Hear? In Enterprise, Oregon they have cattle rustlers, shoot-outs from horseback on the open range, and sheriffs deciding what happened once the dust settles... .Ahhhh, the joys of civilization.

8. Bush is going to take another stab off putting words together into coherent
sentences, saying them out loud and passing it off as a speech.

9. Hillary Clinton has got her 'exploratory committee' on and so does New Mexico governor, Bill Richardson... ..So what's stopping you? Looks and brains are obviously no obstacle in the American struggle for power... .

10. Republican Senator (And co-power-struggler) John McCain says he just might not vote for General George Casey's nomination as Army Chief of Staff. Good idea John. On the other hand, if as the President says, this is going to be a long and truly mismanaged military engage for the foreseeable future, then Casey is the man for the job.

11. McCain is said to be powering up his own presidential media team, most of whom were drafted from the Bush 04 campaign. (Man's been unstoppable ever since

12. Nineteen US soldiers were killed in Iraq on Saturday and this morning two almost simultaneous bombs went off in a crowded market, killing more than 78 people. (Thank, George Casey... )

13. A prominent New Orleans advocate and lobbyist says that since Katrina, only a fraction of the money for reconstruction has been delivered to the citizens, very little of the money has been used to rebuild infrastructure, practically nothing has been done in the name of providing citizens with basic services. And yet contractors are making out like, well... like looters. What this is called, is, the Halliburtonization of New Orleans... .

14. The World Social Forum begins today in Kenya. Economic Partnership Agreements or EPAs are going to be top of the agenda, I'm guessing. EPAs are the 21st century's answer to colonization. They are instruments that penalize developing nations by requiring them to open up their markets to unfair foreign competition.

15. Iraq's Not-So-Democratic government has drafted a law that appears on the surface to settle the burning question: Who, exactly, control's that nation's oil. Regional powers? Central government? America?

16. Iraqi President Jalal Talabani, says he is pushing for talks between America and Syria. (Seems like the wheels are coming off America's latest adventure in imperialism. But at least it isn't out of gas... .yet.)

17. The political movement of Iraqi cleric and militia leader Moqtada al-Sadr says it is ending its two-month boycott of parliament yesterday.

18. Palestinian leader Mahmoud Abbas and Hamas' exiled political chief have failed to agree on forming a national unity government during talks with Syria. Must have been some talks. I suppose what the US figures is that what the US does not know can't hurt it. Must be "the Unknowns That We Know We Don't Know."

19. Balkanized Yet Again: The Serbian Nationalist Party has claimed victory in that nation's recent election but they aren't expecting to find partners too form a governing coalition.

20. Kidnapped Yet again: Six foreign workers have been kidnapped from a cargo ship in Nigeria's Port Harcourt war zone... .Oops! I meant Nigeria's 'oil0rich Niger delta.'

21. Let The Forced Be With You: The Czech government has announced that it wants to host a large US military site for every Republican's wet dream: a great big Star Wars radar site. (What coincidence! China just blew one of it's own satellites out of the sky just as a sort of "routine maintenance" sort of thing... .Spring cleaning, you might call it.)

22. Germany's Foreign Minister is on the hot seat. Reporters want to know why he helped block the release of a German-born Turkish man detained for five years without charges at Guantanamo. (Let me take a stab at that one: Because Angela Merkel wants closer ties with the US - just not quite as close a back-rub... .)

23. Hugo Chavez: "Go to hell, Gringos!"

Summary of the KBOO am news for Tuesday, January 16th, 2007.

sui generis

1. Landowners in Hood River County are asking the government to allow development on nearly 11 thousand rural acres. The battle goes to the Oregon Legislature this week where members will flaccidly debate ways to rein in the depredation of developers. Given the vast stupidity and greed of the average voter, there's not much that can be done to save rural land from asphyxiation... .
2. There Goes The Neighborhood: The Sandy City Council is also confronting a similar Golem in the form of Great American Development (The name itself is all you need to know ... .). Great American is contesting conditions imposed on its 139-lot subdivision.
3. And another familiar Measure 37 scourge: Water Pressure. In Eola Hills, farmers are wishing their wells were not drying up and also questioning the degradation of family farms Measure 37 is strewing in its evil wake.
4. Marion County Planning Commissioners are embroiled in the fight as well. Some arsebite developer filed a Measure 37 claim and demanded that the commissioners approve a subdivision on 217 acres of prime farmland. And again, groundwater is one of the obstacles - that plus the rule of law and cold hard cash. There just isn't enough drinking water for an army of suburban boneheads to water their limitless green lawns and wash their fat, ignorant children...
5. Oregon seed growers are started an early, surprise attack against attempts to ban field burning. (Don't worry, seed growers, in the coming years, global warming is going to take care of the problem for you... )
6. Four senators have initiated a unified assault on the EPA - which as even a child knows has resisted protecting the environment with every fiber of its deeply corrupted being. All four senators from Washington and Oregon want the derelict agency to regulate the cancer-causing chemical benzene. (Yes but if people stopped getting cancer then the health insurance companies and Big Pharma would be in trouble. Cancer may not be good for you, but it is great for business... .)
7. Washington is on track to become the first state in the nation to ban a fire retardants and they just might make it ... .were it not for 'pushback' from the industry.
8. Even after being 'outed' by the Los Angeles Times, Bill Gates won't change its nefarious investment strategy that lurks beneath the stunning PR job his lackeys have done on the old ones and zeros.
9. Jury selection has begun in the Scooter Libby trial. Good luck finding twelve people in Washington DC who don't know who dick Cheney is (Now, where he is - that's another question... )
10. Just as our legislators have signed off on a bill that would allow oil "exploration" in Alaska, Venezuela has sent the first of a number of donated Citco shipments to Alaska's poor. (Which makes oil "exploration" ever so much simpler... .all the intrepid oil "explorers" have to do is go down to the shipyard with binoculars and scan the horizon... )
11. A Border Patrol agent accused of aiding an immigrant smuggling ring got arraigned to day in San Diego. (Ahhh, San Diego, where a fence construction company got nicked for using undocumented laborers to build... you guessed it!)
12. State of the Dick Speech: Bush is... ah..workin'... um..got some expert fellas. .they doin' a good job... on... heh heh..my... um... my talk, my uh... what I'm s'posed to say..to the ah... to people in this state... this, um...
13. Last year's civilian death count is said to be around 35 thousand people - and that's just the instances in which the body was recovered...
14. Krazy Ken Ham's Kreation Museum/theme park is well on its Wrong Way to being the world's greatest monument to lies and fairytales... .not counting Disneyland.
15. Condoleeza Rice arrived in Saudi Arabia after a challenging "three-way" (Use your imagination. That's what it's there for!) meeting with Abbas and Olmert. Rice is hot to convince Arab - and not-so-Arab - nations that Bush's "surge" is a good idea.
16. The US says it is going to "go after" networks of Iranian and Syrian agents in Iraq. (As long as they "go after" them inside the borders of Iraq... )
17. The lynching of Barzan al-Tikriti and Hamed al-Bandar have further enraged Iraqis - as well as the rest of the Arab world. People apparently find it hard to believe that a noose could sever the spine, the muscles and other tissues that normally prevent heads from just randomly departing their host bodies.
18. Robert Gates is having a little look-see at Afghanistan. (Perhaps he ought to take a look at Pakistan, after all, that's where bin Laden is... .waiting on ice for the 2008 election)
19. In Britain, MI6 has challenged the government's claim that a major corruption inquiry into Saudi Arabian arms deals poses a threat to national security.
20. Leaders at this week's East Asian Summit in Cebu, in the Philippines, are putting together their own free trade zone.
21. The Enemy of My Enemy is My Friend: Iranian president Mahmoud Ahmadinejad is still wooing Latin American leaders. He got together with Nicaragua's newly elected Daniel Ortega this week.
22. Ecuador has sworn in its newly-elected president, Rafael Correa, who has promised a "citizens revolution." (Sounds like a good idea... )
23. Former ANC parliamentary whip Tony Yengeni has been released from prison after serving five months of a four-year fraud conviction.
24. Somalia has shut down all major broadcast outlets.
25. With Doha DOA, South Korea and the US started talks yesterday aimed at striking a bilateral free trade deal. such a deal amounts a death sentence for South Korean farmers and small businessmen. Once Uncle Sam gets his foot in the door, there's no turning back for Maquilladoradom.
26. Castro is very sick.
27. The minute hand on Doomsday Clock moves closer to midnight tomorrow. (Largely thanks to the American people who apparently lack the political will and moral resolve to stop the coming Armageddon... .

Concerning the murder of MLK, Jr as a covert Act of State

Join us this Monday, January 15, 2007 in an examination of the life and murder of Martin Luther King Jr Title: An Act of State The Execution of Martin Luther King Jr. When: Monday, January, 15th, from 5 pm 9 pm Where: "David¹s Church" 602 N. E. Prescott, Portland, OR. Door: Free, but a donation would be meaningful. On the evening of April 4, 1968, Martin Luther King was in Memphis, supporting a workers¹ strike. By the end of the day, top-level army snipers were in position to knock him out if ordered. Two military officers were in place on the roof of a fire station near the Lorraine Motel, to photograph the events. Two black firemen had been ordered not to report to duty that day and a black Memphis Police department detective on surveillance duty in the fire station was physically removed from his post and taken home. Dr. Kings¹ room at the motel was changed from a secluded ground-floor room to number 306 on the balcony. Lloyd Jowers¹, owner of Jim's Grill which backed on to the motel from the other side of the street, had already received $100,000 in cash for his agreement to participate in the assassination. He was to go out into the brush area behind the grill with the shooter and take possession of the gun immediately after the fatal shot was fired. When the dust settled, King had been hit, and a clean-up procedure was immediately set in motion. James Earl Ray was effectively framed, the snipers dispersed, any witnesses who could no be controlled were killed, and crime scene was destroyed. Schedule of videos and audio: 5 pm 6pm Videos of Martin Luther King III and Rep. Cynthia McKinney on the FBI surveillance of MLK 6pm 7 pm- Audio of John Judge, an independent researcher and lecturer on political assassinations, covert operations, hidden history and the rise of fascism in America. He has been active since the 1960¹s opposing war, racism and militarism. Judge is a co-founder of 9/11 Citizens Watch, a grassroots watchdog group devoted to learning and exposing the truth about those pivotal events. His audio lecture, from 2006 is called ==The US Governments Role in the Murder of MLK.== 7pm 9pm- William Pepper MLK: Orders to Kill. From 1967 to 1968, William Pepper was an associate of Dr. King and executive director of the independent political coalition that hoped to put Kind forward as a third party presidential candidate in 1968. After the murder he walked away from political activity. Then, in 1977, Rev. Ralph Abernathy asked Pepper to interview James Earl Ray. Initially skeptical, Pepper became convinced that Ray was innocent of the crime. He came to believe that, as Ray had always claimed, that he had been manipulated by a man named RAUL and was the victim of a set up. But who was ultimately behind the set up and why? The intertwined injustices to King¹s memory and unfinished work, and Ray¹s freedom compelled Pepper to devote much of the next twenty-plus years of his life to finding the answers to these questions. Analysis of the event: Many speakers we have heard recently, particularly people from inside the establishment, who become whistle-blowers as a result of the conduct of the Bush administration tend to portray present US policies as a qualitative departure from the past. They talk about taking the country back, restoring democracy, etc. But a through examination of history shows that the policies of the present administration are merely quantatively different. The Bush Administration is more corrupt, more overtly imperial and more openly the workings of a corporate oligarchy; but this oligarchy is not new. It is the basis on which this nation was been ruled. When Pres. Dwight D. Eisenhower left office he warned about the excesses of the military-industrial complex. This complex is in fact the actual government of this nation and most of the people who run it have never run for any election. It is not democratic and it maintains power by coercion and violence, incentives to the faithful, by secrecy and by the creation of a comforting public mythology, far from the actual truth, that those who speak out against it are easy to marginalize as paranoid nut-cases. It persists no matter which party holds office. No candidate who would fundamentally challenge it is allowed to emerge as a serious contender. See also comment "THE PENTAGON" on portland.indymedia

The Truth IS Out There -- Dean Haglund of "The X-Files"

Haglund told Alex Jones that X-Files' fans in Europe and Australia appreicate the anti US government posture in X-Files and particularly in the the clairvoyant May 2001 pilot episode of The Lone Gunman, screened for the public by the PDX 9/11 TRUTH ALLIANCE in the Spring of 2006.

Stop the Warmakers - Pioneer Square - noon Sat Jan 6th


Members of the pdx911truth alliance will meet at Pioneer Courthouse Square at noon Saturday January 6th to remind those "dieing in" just what kind of racket is being served by America's endless, aggressive, imperial, illegal culture of war and repression.

Brian Mc Manus is bringing video DVDs of 911 Mysteries to hand out to all comers. Glen Owen has made up some new signs modelled on the familiar circle-in-a-square design. Messages below the 9/11 circle are
  • "connect the dots"
  • "demand the truth"
  • "real investigation"
  • "stop the big lie"
See you there.

What is safe, certain and correct to say re events of 9/11 The crashing of a Boeing passenger jet was not responsible for collapse nor full-scale demolition of any building in the world on or about September 11th 2001. It does not matter what, if anything, struck a lateral blow to either of the twin towers. That is not and could not have been the cause for their freefall into their own footprints on that or any other day. World Trade Center Seven was not hit by anything. Tiny fires of questionable provenance in a few isolated areas of that building--which had been brought under control well before 5pm collapse--had nothing to do with the classic controlled demolition implosion, where explosives had clearly been staged with intricate care at many strategic points in the building at least weeks before 9/11. It does not matter what, if any, airborne vessel struck the Pentagon. The blindingly obvious military stand down (or worse) on the most heavily fortified building on this planet could not have been anything but intentional and very premeditated indeed. Is a smallish military drone a plane? Were they actual, regular, ordinarily equipped passenger jets flown off officially specified course that made lateral contact with two epic high-rise towers (WTC 1 and 2) and a lumbering monstrous bunker of a mid rise (the Pentagon)? It does not matter. I think it is a waste of time speculating on the exact nature of possible exotic and unfamiliar-to-the-public technologies that might or might not have played some kind of minor role in the surface appearance of the public spectacle. And I think it is a ridiculous waste of time complaining about people who conjecture on facts not particularly clearly in evidence (the hologrammists, space wavers, "no-planers" etc). We don't need to know exactly how the deed was done. It does not matter exactly what mechanical means were used. The deed was an attack on the United States by covert criminal elements within the US governing elite supported by its client media with clear intent to provoke a whole new paradigm of permanent, global, imperial war ... ... and THAT IS ALL THAT MATTERS; period. --GlenOwen--

Move Over Rush Limbaugh Kevin Barrett A Conservative Talk Show Host? Kevin Barrett, that “radcal libral” inundated with angry emails from illiterate conservatives, has made an odd career choice. He is trying his luck as a conservative talk show host. Barrett has already been hired by two conservative Christian radio networks, Genesis Communications Network and Republic Broadcasting Network. In his first show on RBN, Barrett slammed author and cybercolumnist John Kaminski for his anti-Semitic statements, while his second featured an interview with Dr. Eric Larsen, author of A Nation Gone Blind. His third show included a stunning interview with 9/11 hero and truth-teller William Rodriguez (see below). Barrett’s inaugural shows on GCN’s “The Dynamic Duo with Jim Fetzer and Kevin Barrett” will offer interviews with Brother Raymond of Beit Shalom Ministries (11/20/06) who will soon begin a walk for peace and 9/11 truth from Denver to Washington, D.C.; and Les Jamieson of NY911truth.org (11/24/06). What is Barrett, a “radcal libral Muslim truth jihadi” doing with a show called Truth Jihad Radio on a conservative Christian radio network? And why is he using the music of John Lennon, that liberal icon who sang “imagine no religion” as the show’s theme music? “Being a conservative means wanting to conserve the highest ideals of our forebears, wanting to conserve what’s good from the past,” Barrett explained. “Real conservatives want to conserve authentic religious traditions. They want to conserve our liberties, and the notion of limited government, as set forth in the US Constitution. They want to conserve our beautiful planet from the ‘creative destruction’ of ever-escalating warfare, cancerous pseudo-growth, and IMF globalist tyranny. The so-called neoconservatives, who preach the Orwellian doctrines of Leo Straus—big government through big lies and endless war—are not conservatives at all, but radical Trotskyites who have adopted ‘conservatism’ to disguise their evil, un-American philosophy and their tyrannical, genocidal actions. We need to annihilate the neocons by any means necessary—and since most ‘liberals’ are brainwashed wimps who think big government is their friend, it is real conservatives are going to lead the charge.” But John Lennon? “Malcolm X is my main American hero,” Barrett explained, “but Lennon isn’t far behind. Sure, he didn’t like or even understand religion. But he was a brave, creative truth-teller who stood up against the genocidal Vietnam war, and he was persecuted and killed for telling the truth. His anthem ‘Give Me Some Truth’ should not only be the theme song of the 9/11 truth movement, it should be America’s national anthem. And, God willing, it will be, after the 9/11 truth revolution.” With ideas like these, Barrett may not become the next Rush Limbaugh. But he could become one of the most interesting, iconoclastic voices in American talk radio. * * * Truth Jihad Radio’s debut William Rodriguez Interview 11/18/06 Barrett’s new RBN show Truth Jihad Radio features an interview with 9/11 hero William Rodriguez (the show is archived athttp://www.rbnlive.com/archiveindex.html). Rodriguez, the WTC janitor who singlehandledly rescued fifteen people, including those injured by the massive bomb that exploded in the North Tower sub-basement before the plane hit, and who indirectly saved hundreds more by opening exit doors to the stairwell with the only available key, is THE greatest 9/11 hero in the world media as well as America’s Hispanic and cyber media. But after braving implied death threats and persisting in telling the truth about the bombs that brought down the WTC—including the many explosions he personally witnessed, which began before the plane hit—Rodriguez has been abandoned by the US government and blacked out of the corporate monopoly media. (The contention by Rodriguez and dozens of other witnesses that the bombs began exploding before the plane hit has been confirmed by seismographic evidence: See “Seismic Proof: 9/11 Was an Inside Job” at the Scholars for 9/11 Truth website.) William Rodriguez’s story is not just compelling, it us utterly amazing. Had he not shown up for work late on 9/11, he and the hundreds of people he saved would be dead, because he would have been at the top of the North Tower, instead of in the basement, when the attack began. That such a handsome, articulate, courageous janitor happened to be in the right place at the right time, with the only available master key that allowed hundreds to escape certain death, is either a stunning coincidence or proof of God’s existence. Since 9/11, William Rodriguez has become the most prominent full-time advocate for the victims of 9/11—not just those who lost their lives on 9/11, but the tens of thousands who have been sickened or killed by the toxic WTC dust that the government told us was perfectly safe to breathe. Please support his ongoing heroism and check out his excellent video, available from his website, http://www.911keymaster.com

THE HIGHJACKING OF A NATION

Part 1: The Foreign Agent Factor
By Sibel Edmonds

In his farewell address in 1796, George Washington warned that America must be constantly awake against “the insidious wiles of foreign influence…since history and experience prove that foreign influence is one of the most baneful foes of republican government.”

Today, foreign influence, that most baneful foe of our republican government, has its tentacles entrenched in almost all major decision making and policy producing bodies of the U.S. government machine. It does so not secretly, since its self-serving activities are advocated and legitimized by highly positioned parties that reap the benefits that come in the form of financial gain and positions of power.

Foreign governments and foreign-owned private interests have long sought to influence U.S. public policy. Several have accomplished this goal; those who are able and willing to pay what it takes. Those who buy themselves a few strategic middlemen, commonly known as pimps, while in DC circles referred to as foreign registered agents and lobbyists, who facilitate and bring about desired transactions. These successful foreign entities have mastered the art of ‘covering all the bases’ when it comes to buying influence in Washington DC. They have the required recipe down pat: get yourself a few ‘Dime a Dozen Generals,’ bid high in the ‘former statesmen lobby auction’, and put in your pocket one or two ‘ex-congressmen turned lobbyists’ who know the ropes when it comes to pocketing a few dozen who still serve.

The most important facet of this influence to consider is what happens when the active and powerful foreign entities’ objectives are in direct conflict with our nation’s objectives and its interests and security; and when this is the case, who pays the ultimate price and how. There is no need for assumptions of hypothetical situations to answer these questions, since throughout recent history we have repeatedly faced the dire consequences of the hijacking of our foreign and domestic policies by these so-called foreign agents of foreign influence.

Let’s illustrate this with the most important recent case, the catastrophe endured by our people; the September Eleven terrorist attacks. Let’s observe how certain foreign interests, combined with their U.S. agents and benefactors, overrode the interests and security of the entire nation; how thousands of victims and their loved ones were kicked aside to serve the interests of a few; foreign influence and its agents.
