Forget Impeachment, Put Bush and Cheney in a Straightjacket

"Iran is now a major threat to Europe? The Iranians are going to launch a nuclear missile (that they don't yet possess) against Europe!?" This has got to stop before the megalomaniacs in the oval office destroy this entire planet.

THE SECOND ANNUAL BOSTON TEA PARTY AND CONFERENCE FOR 9/11 TRUTH!

Scientists & Citizens Speak Out!
December 15 &16, 2007

Building on the success of last year’s inaugural event, Boston 9/11 Truth is proud to present two days of 911 truth activism at this year’s Boston Tea Party and Conference for 9/11 Truth, to be held Saturday and Sunday, December 15 and 16, 2007. This year’s theme, “Scientists and Citizens Speak Out,” reinforces our commitment to the broadest exposure possible of the scientific, criminal and political issues being covered-up and/or ignored by our government and the media concerning the events of September 11, 2001.

CONFERENCE
SATURDAY DECEMBER 15

The weekend’s events will kick off with a day-long conference on Saturday December 15 at Boston’s historic Faneuil Hall and is entitled, “The Destruction of World Trade Center Towers 1, 2 and 7: A Case for Controlled Demolition.” In this scientific look at the collapses, a panel of four well-known and credentialed science and engineering professionals will present the case that the government’s theories could not possibly be true and that most of the evidence points to the one theory that’s been completely avoided by the government and the media – controlled demolition.

The Truth Movement got a huge boost in 2007 when California architect Richard Gage, AIA, exploded onto the scene with “Architects and Engineers for Truth” (AE911Truth). Opening the presentations on Saturday morning at one of America’s most famous meeting halls, Gage will be joined by long-time 9/11 researcher and former BYU physics professor Dr. Steven Jones, Underwriters Laboratories whistleblower Kevin Ryan, and new to the scene, Dr. Joel Hirschhorn, who in September 2007 came out with an unequivocal endorsement of the work of AE911Truth. Dr. Hirschhorn is formerly a professor of Metallurgy at the University of Wisconsin and was a senior staff member at the US Congressional Office of Technology Assessment from 1978 to 1991, testifying more than 50 times before congress on scientific issues. He is the author of several books, including, “Delusional Democracy: Fixing the Republic Without Overthrowing the Government.” We enthusiastically welcome Dr. Hirschhorn to the growing list of distinguished scientists and true patriots who are willing to step forward and speak out on the 9/11 cover-up. The Conference will conclude with a panel discussion and Q&A session.

Volunteer activists from across New England are currently working hard on a campaign to impress upon the academic, architectural and engineering communities near Boston, the need for honesty in dealing with the scientific data related to the horrific crime on September 11. Huge efforts are being made to invite as many of these academics and professionals as possible to the Conference, to judge for themselves where the scientific evidence points. Your support of this event makes that possible. For information on the Conference and how to purchase tickets, visit

THE TEA PARTY FOR 911 TRUTH
SUNDAY DECEMBER 16

The 9/11 Commission Report, the Military Commissions Act, the Patriot Act, Presidential Directive #51, the FEMA Report, the continuously revised and delayed NIST Report – the list off attacks on the truth and on our rights and freedoms continues to grow every day, by decree of this administration and with the blessings of Congress. The need to reject this encroachment is even greater than last year and the need for a Tea Party is NOW! The media in New England is ever so slowly waking from its slumber on 9/11 issues and we need to be out there in numbers to make sure they don’t drift back to sleep. As we did in 2006, we will read a 9/11 Truth Proclamation at a downtown Boston location (to be announced) and publicly declare our demand to reopen the 9/11 investigations. Barbara Honegger, Dr. Robert Bowman, Dr. Kevin Barrett and many others from last year are on board for this year’s event (watch website for updates).

We are also encouraging the participation of Peace & Justice and Impeachment activists who feel abandoned by the 110th Congress, which failed to act on it’s ’06 promises to end our illegal occupation of Iraq, with the hope that together we might demonstrate to the public that it’s ALL one big lie. The “Tea Party” will then disperse and reconvene near the site of the original 1773 Tea Party at the Evelyn Moakely Bridge, where hence, we will ceremoniously cast into the sea these documents of tyranny that have been cynically imposed on a terrorized public. The media will be invited.

The Tea Party events on Sunday will begin with a public rally, with a reading of the Boston Tea Party for 9/11 Truth Proclamation and, “Dumping” of the 9/11 Commission Report, (including the Patriot Acts, Military Commission Act, PD51 and others) at the Moakley Bridge at 3:00 pm, and concludes with a “Celebration” at the adjacent Barking Crab restaurant and pub beginning at 4:00 pm.

Last year’s Boston Tea Party reverberated around the country, with 9/11 Truth coalitions stretching from Washington DC to San Francisco Bay staging their own Tea Parties and joining us in publicly rejecting the 9/11 Commission Report. We encourage truth activists across America in planning their own local events in support of our public denunciation, standing together as one in our cause.

HARTFORD, Conn. -- The FBI and federal prosecutors have contacted U.S. Sen. Joe Lieberman's office about at least $14,000 in contributions to his 2004 presidential campaign made by a now-indicted Danbury-area businessman and his associates, a spokesman for the senator has confirmed.

James Galante, 54, of New Fairfield, his associates and their relatives donated to Lieberman's presidential campaign in the fall of 2003, the Hartford Courant reported Sunday, citing federal campaign records.


Galante and 28 other people were indicted last year in a federal investigation of the mob's alleged influence on the trash hauling industry in western Connecticut and upstate New York. Galante, who owns several trash businesses, has pleaded not guilty to 93 federal counts including racketeering, extortion and fraud.


State authorities have also charged Galante with making illegal campaign contributions to other politicians. Galante's lawyer, Hugh Keefe, said his client is accused of making about $38,000 on donations to three political action committees through straw donors.

Galante is awaiting trial on the federal charges related to the garbage hauling investigation. Through a spokesman, he said he would not comment on the campaign money.

No charges have been filed in connection with the donations to Lieberman's presidential campaign.


Rob Sawicki, Lieberman's press secretary, said federal authorities have asked the senator's office about the circumstances surrounding the contributions. He said no one in the campaign knew about any impropriety involved with the donations made through Galante.

Lieberman will donate that money to a charity if federal authorities determine that the donations were illegal, Sawicki said.


"Those donations would never have been accepted had the campaign been aware of any wrongdoing in the bundling of those donations," he said.


The state campaign finance charges against Galante were filed on Oct. 13. He is accused of making suspect $1,000 contributions in 2002 and 2003 to the political action committees. Those committees were controlled by state Sen. Louis DeLuca, R-Woodbury, state Sen. David Cappiello, R-Danbury, and Danbury Mayor Mark Boughton, the Courant reported.

It is not illegal to "bundle" contributions from several people and give them to a candidate at one time. But it is against the law to use bundling to exceed campaign contribution limits by funneling money through third parties who write checks within the limits.


DeLuca, Cappiello and Boughton are also not targets of the federal investigation. All three have said that they believed the contributions from Galante and his associates were legitimate. Cappiello, who is running for Congress in the 5th District, said he has donated the contributions in question to charity.


Several of Galante's employees, friends and relatives who state authorities say donated to the three PACs also gave a total of $10,000 to Lieberman's presidential campaign in November 2003, the federal campaign finance records show.

Galante himself gave Lieberman's campaign another $2,000 in September 2003, and a lobbyist for Galante donated $2,000 that year, the records show.

Dear Member of the Nation Community,

Tuesday's the big day. That's when Congress will hold a hearing on the outrageous Time Warner-inspired postage rate hike that's saddled The Nation with a half million dollar annual increase in postal costs and brought other small publications to the brink of financial disaster. Now's the moment for champions of independent media to take a stand.

We're joining our friends at Free Press to collect 100,000 signatures, and we want to have phones ringing off the hook on Capitol Hill by Tuesday.

Please send a message to Congress, post haste.

Our founding fathers knew that a free press is a cornerstone of democracy. That's why they encouraged small publishers and a broad spectrum of opinions in media by guaranteeing fair postal rates for all.

But mega-magazines have undermined that founding principle. Time Warner and others like them are passing the buck onto smaller independent publishers, threatening to silence the fearless investigative journalism that small media outlets like The Nation are known for.

Now is our chance to restore the founder's vision.

The Nation isn't the only small magazine forced to foot the bill. We're on the same page with small publishers on the opposite side of the aisle, like National Review, who have also been hit hard by the increase.

It's not just the fate of your favorite magazine that rests on the outcome of this hearing. The health of our nation's open public discourse hangs in the balance.

Your Congressperson needs to hear from you now. Please let them know you won't stand by quietly while the future of independent publications are at risk.

Thank you in advance for doing your part today -- and thank you for all you've done on this critical issue during the past few months. Without the help of grassroots activists like yourself we wouldn't even be witnessing these important hearings! Your support is amazing and we are truly grateful.

Sincerely,

Teresa Stack

President, The Nation
