9/11 Truther: The Fight for Peace, Justice and Accountability

February 24, 2012

Your very own co-founder of 9/11Blogger has finally written a book! ’9/11 Truther’ details Jon Gold’s experiences in the 9/11 truth movement and why it is still vitally important to the welfare of the world that the event be fully investigated for the purposes of justice, accountability, and peace.

Jon is a personal friend of mine whose work I’ve followed for years. I’ve often played the role of sounding board for Jon, a man whose early life experiences mirror many of my own. He is a working class gentleman who has dedicated his life to spreading the message of the Jersey Girls, to doing everything in his power to help the forgotten, neglected, and ailing 9/11 First Responders, and to spreading the ideas and beliefs of many great American icons such as Martin Luther King, Jr and Cindy Sheehan. Speaking of Cindy Sheehan, she was kind enough to author the foreword to Jons’ book. Cindy is an elegant wordsmith. She is a woman that has earned my utmost respect for being consistent, outspoken, and incendiary. She does not disappoint here.

Cindy Sheehan: “I am a 9/11 truther”

September 15, 2010

source: World for 9/11 Truth     Sep 15, 2010

Peace activist Cindy Sheehan has given support to the cause of 9/11 truth many times over the past few years but on the eve of the ninth anniversary, she made her position clearer than ever before. To an enthusiastic packed house at All Souls Church in New York City, Sheehan declared “I am a 9/11 truther. I do think it was an inside job.”

Sheehan lost her son Casey in the Iraq invasion and has since dedicated her life to ending war and injustice. She is most widely known for setting up camp on the edge of George W. Bush’s Texas property in 2005, demanding that the president answer one single question from a mother whose son died in the war.

Since that time, Sheehan has continued her activism. She is a fierce critic of the Obama administration’s continued occupations and drone attacks, and recently founded Peace of the Action to further her anti-war activities.

On Friday, in the crowded All Souls Church on the upper East Side of Manhattan, Sheehan spoke of many injustices related to the war, both at home and abroad. She spoke of being tear gassed and shot at with rubber bullets while protesting. She spoke of the recently reported “Kill Squad” in Afghanistan, where members of the US military collected the fingers of slaughtered civilians for souvenirs. “That’s not something new,” Sheehan said.

Cindy Sheehan Interviews 9/11 Victim Family Member Bob McIlvaine

September 7, 2010

source: 9/11 Truth News  / Cindy Sheehan’s Soapbox      Sep 7, 2010

As we enter September, I recall back in 2001 on the morning of September 11, when I awoke from what I feel was a precognitive dream to find that two passenger jets had flown into the World Trade towers and two were out of communication with air traffic control. My life, your life, and indeed, everyone on this planet’s life has not been the same since that terrible day. Some people’s lives prospered under the “new paradigm” of global and almost total police state control and with two military invasions and occupations by the US on two countries that did not attack us on 9/11/01.

Most people, though, have felt the pain of war, environmental decay and economic depravity that have been imposed by the U.S. Empire. This week on the Soapbox my guest is Bob McIlvaine whose son Bobby perished in the lobby of Tower Two on that morning (in an explosion, hmmm) and Bob gives a passionate, well-informed and intense evaluation of that day – and a touching remembrance of his son.

You Get What you Vote For!

November 29, 2009

source: Op Ed News

The so-called anti-war movement currently finds itself in somewhat of a quagmire: What to do when the man you raised money for, volunteered for, and yes, even voted for, actually fulfills one of his most repulsive campaign promises?

First of all, I never understood why, or how, peace people could support someone who voted to pay for the wars while he was a Senator and was quite clear on the fact that he would increase violence in Afghanistan and perform a slow, painful and very incomplete withdrawal from Iraq. Principles that were proclaimed so loudly while Bush was president get shoved aside and buried now that a Democrat is president and how do you get your principles back from the dung-pile of selling out?
