September 1, 2008 - 9/11 Truth Radio Show with Paul Zarembka and Julez Edward

Listen 8:00- 9:00 pm (PST) to the WeThePeopleRadioNetwork.com and to our guest- Paul Zarembka.

Listen 9:00- 10:00 pm (PST) to the WeThePeopleRadioNetwork.com and to our guests- Julez Edward

Paul Zarembka is the editor of The HIDDEN HISTORY of 9/11. (Read a good review of the book by Tod Fletcher). Paul Zarembka, received his Phd. in Economics from the University of Wisconsin. He is a Professor of Economics at University of Buffalo, and has specialized in Marxist theory, labor history, and economic development.

He confronted Philip Zelikow questioning him about the identities of the 19 hijackers who protested their participation in the attacks, as well as the omission of the destruction of WTC7 from the Official Commission Report.

Julez Edward was born in the year 1983 in Ostend, West-Flandres, Belgium, together with Apple and Microsoft... He hate's the fact that politics and economy converted the art of being artist into the 'music industry.' In 2006, when no other Belgian 'artist' dared to openly criticize politics or economics (is there a difference?), he decided to become the difference. His music is available at his website- julez-edward.be/. He is one of two main organizers of the
United for Truth.org effort to unite Europe against war and capitalism that culminated last year in a march and rally in Brussels and is currently organizing another march and rally in Brussels on Sunday, September 7, 2008, again in Brussels. They say on the website:

    In solidarity with the American citizens, we demand an independent investigation of the 9/11 attacks, which were the pretext for too many wars, lies, and a serious decrease of (y)our civil rights (“anti-terrorist”-acts, secret prisons, “Patriot act”, etc). We want European troops back home! We want European laws that guarantee neutrality of the internet and that explicitly forbid tracing/chipping (RFID) of human beings as well as other electronic threats on our freedom. We want democratic and public control of financial organizations (IMF, WB, etc) and the mass media. But most of all we want you to get your life back."

      We never pretend to know or tell "what really happened on the 9/11". Until an independent investigation take place we shouldn't even claim it was an "inside job".

      We want to break the wall of silence and the actual isolation of the so called "9-11 truth movement" in Europe when the majority of the US citizen do ask for that independent investigation.

      We want to put the 9/11 in its context and link it to its consequences as 9/11 was a pretext to military wars against innocent people, political wars against freedom around the world and on the net, economical wars against the whole population and the planet itself.

August 25, 2008 - Canadian 9/11 Truth Show with Michael Pengue, Kenneth Fernandez, Drew Noftle and Robert Lewis

Listen 8:00- 9:00 pm (PST) to the WeThePeopleRadioNetwork.com and to our guest- Michael Pengue and Kenneth Fernandez

Listen 9:00- 10:00 pm (PST) to the WeThePeopleRadioNetwork.com and to our guests- Robert Lewis and Drew Noftle.

Michael Pengue is the producer of the online film Montreal, Next Terror Target?, he is also a co-founder of the Montreal 9/11 Truth group- mtl911truth.org. He is a native of Montreal, first generation Canadian of Italian born parents.

Two years after the events of 9/11, his friend, Kenneth Fernandez, expressed a very strong suspicion that 9/11 was an inside-job. From 2003 he read books and articles by Michael Ruppert, David Griffin, Daniel Hopsicker, Sander Hicks, Michel Chossudovsky and watched countless documentaries. In 2004, he joined the Canadian Action Party and shortly after became a member of their executive team (until early 2008 when he resigned as vice-president only to continue as a member and supporter of CAP). At the International Citizens’ Inquiry into 9/11 in Toronto, he met Ruppert and others and that drove him to be more active. Just a few weeks later his picture made it in the Montreal Gazette standing in front of the Montreal's Imperial Theatre for the premiere of Michael Moore's film ''Fahrenheit 9/11''carrying a sandwich-board reading " 9/11 Was an Inside Job" and on the flip side "Fahrenheit 911 is Just the Tip of the Iceberg." He handed out countless leaflets to the large crowd waiting in line for the theater doors to open and to a sympathetic Gazette photographer.

In 2006, he organized his first 9/11 film screening in a Montreal conference hall. In the summer of 2007 he initiated the creation of The Montreal 9/11 Truth Website for the 1st 9/11 speaker event in Montreal when Webster Tarpley and Connie Fogal, leader of the Canadian Action Party, came to town to speak to a full house in downtown Montreal.

In early 2008, the release of their first documentary film entitled "Montreal, The Next Terror Target?" which he narrated and researched, and which generated an overwhelming response from people motivated to get involved.

From that point onward, in terms of regular participation, everything seemed to progressively get better for them. Since then they have been meeting on a weekly basis to work on their first 9/11 film screening at a university. In June of 2008, they had a full house at a conference with David Ray Griffin chaired by Michel Chossudovsky.

Kenneth Fernandez is a political consultant influenced by the political legacy of Pierre Elliott Trudeau. He has two law degrees from McGill University and an exceptional grasp of history and foreign affairs. He ran for the Canadian Action Party in the federal elections of 2000 and 2004 in the district of Saint-Laurent-Cartierville. He spoke at the 2004 Toronto Citizens’ Inquiry Into 9/11. He also did much of the research for the film "Montreal, The Next Terror Target?

Robert Lewis is a Montreal writer and filmmaker. He is the author of Gaj: The End of Religion (2004), a book on spiritual philosophy, and the director of the documentary Be Smile: The Stories of Two Urban Inuit(2006), which chronicles the lives of two Inuit men living homeless on the streets of Montreal. In 2007 he travelled to Ground Zero for the 9/11 anniversary to interview activists for his documentary short The Documentary of the 9/11 Truth Movement. For the past year, he has been very active with Montreal 9/11 Truth, and one of the main organizers of the March on Ottawa for 9/11 Truth in support of a Canadian 9/11 investigation, an event scheduled for 7 - 11 September 2008.

Drew Noftle is a co-founder of the Vancouver 9/11 Truth Society (vancouver911truth.org), was a chief organizer for the Vancouver 9/11 Truth Conference, and helped bring dozens of 9/11 researchers to Vancouver to speak at sold out events.

He is now helping to take 9/11 Truth across the country with the 2008 Truth Tour, and the March on Ottawa http://www.marchonottawa2008.org/. The goals: to unite the movement across the country and start the ground work in creating an independent Canadian investigation into 9/11.

In September of 2001, Drew Noftle was living in Vancouver Canada and had just finished his second year of Marketing Management in College. Tired of the slow life in Vancouver, Drew then decided to move down to San Francisco to meet up with some Canadian friends who were already there, and start anew. Then 9/11 happened.

In the days following 9/11, the Canadian US border was closed for the first time in history, and his plans to move south had to be aborted. Not understanding at all what had happened, and still discontent with life in Canada, he made a quick decision to move to China, and meet up with some friends in Dandong, Liaoning – the northeastern Chinese city that borders North Korea.

After living a few months there, he knew China was to become his new home. He traveled around a bit and eventually made Beijing his home, and spent the next three years studying Mandarin Chinese.

Then in winter 2005, His roommate forced him to watch an Alex Jones film. At the time Drew hated Alex Jones. There was nothing worse then coming home to some nutcase ranting on in a thick Texas accent about how he thinks the world works. Agreeing only to watch 5 minutes, his roommate showed him a clip of Building 7 from Martial Law. This clip literally blew him away. Not wanting to accept the fact of 9/11 being an inside Job, he then spent a few months studying online, and came to find out for himself what the War of Terror was really all about.

Drew returned to Vancouver in Oct 2006, and began to work with the existing network of 9/11 Truth activists. They are now a strong group and an inspiration to the growing global Truth Movement.

August 18, 2008 911 Power to the People Show with Les Jamieson and Kyle Hence

In the first hour with Les Jamieson and Kyle Hence.

In the second hour with Kyle Hence

Les Jamieson, a leader in the New York 9/11 Truth Movement, active with ny911truth.org, gives an update on their efforts to carry forward the New York City Ballot Initiative, www.nyc911initiative.org. 27,000 signatures have been gathered, but they may not be able to meet this year's deadline, but the signatures will count towards getting it passed next year. With enough support, they still might be abl to pull it off this year, but they just have a little over two weeks, so they need people and money to assist them in winning over the public and collecting signatures. Tha campaign, itself has been a success in raising more awareness and support for a genuine investigation.

Kyle Hence played a leadership role in creating the 9/11 Truth Alliance back in 2002, and organizing one of the first educational events in DC in June 2002 on 9/11 and the Public Safety. He was involved with the production of three excellent documentaries- Aftermath- Unanswered Questions from 9/11, 9/11 Press for Truth, and In Their Own Words: The Untold Stories of the 9/11 Families. He was a founder of 9/11 Citizen's Watch, and helped get Representative Cynthia McKinney to chair the September 2004- 9/11 Citizens’ Commission Hearings in New York City and hold briefings for the Black Congressional Caucus in DC in July of 2005, entitled "The 9/11 Commission Report One Year Later - A Citizens’ Response – Did They Get It Right?"

We spoke about the 9/11 Truth Movement, Kyle's films, many aspects of 9/11, including the financial aspects, which Kyle continues to research. Acknowledging the growth of the movement, we also noted the challenges we've had to face, including the morass of conflicting information which makes it harder to discover the truth, the barriers posed by the media, the government, and our own human ability to organize ourselves, let alone cooperate and work together to build genuine political forces to challenge those which organized, staged and have used 9/11 to strengthen their grip on the country and the world.

Originally, I had counted on Cynthia McKinney and Rosa Clemente to be on the show, but Cynthia couldn't stay awake for it, because she has to get up early tomorrow for a plane. I don't know why we couldn't reach Rosa, but when I organized the interview, her scheduler said that she had 200 press inquiries, so I am guessing that she was overwhwelmed and forgot- and the phone number that I was given to reach her was the wrong one, but I don't know. As a Green Party candidate, I know that the Green Party has its strengths and weaknesses; it is not wealthy, well organized, and communications within the Party and between the Party and the public remains a huge challenge.

Cynthia McKinney still is an inspiration to me. Kyle mentioned how she grilled Rumsfeld on the War Games that took place on September 11th and probed to find out about the trillions missing from the Pentagon.

A caller mentioned how Cynthia needed just a few more donations to qualify for Federal funding which would help her tremendously to launch a tour across the country with her message and reach out to young people with her hip-hop supporters.

We spoke about the failure of the 9/11 Commission, but its value in providing us with chronicled lies and omissions which help point the way to the avenues of research that need to be pursued. We agreed on the need for a new commission with subpoena power. Kyle spoke of the success of 9/11 Press for Truth (not financial, but in raising consciousness), nationally, around the world, and how he personally gave copies to members of Congress, including Senator Obama, and Senator Clinton.

John Bursill phoned from Australia to urge Cynthia and the Green Party's help at winning over the Australian Greens, and mentioned their upcoming 9/11 Truth events.

Another caller asked about the possibility of cancelling the elections and martial law.

Overall, I think our message to people is to show courage, and organize; we all need to face and overcome the obstacles in our paths, including members of Congress.

August 18, 2008 - Power to the People Show with Cynthia McKinney and Rosa Clemente

Listen 8:00- 9:00 pm (PST) to the WeThePeopleRadioNetwork.com and to our guest- Rosa Clemente

Listen 9:00- 10:00 pm (PST) to the WeThePeopleRadioNetwork.com and to our guests- Cynthia McKinney

Rosa Alicia Clemente is a community organizer, journalist and Hip-Hop activist. Born and raised in the South Bronx she is a graduate of the University of Albany and Cornell University. A much sought after commentator, political activist, community organize and independent reporter, Rosa has been delivering workshops, presentations and commentary for over ten years.

Rosa's academic work has been dedicated to researching national liberation struggles inside the United States, with a specific focus on the Young Lords Party and the Black Liberation Army. While a student at SUNY Albany, she was President of the Albany State University Black Alliance (ASUBA) and Director of Multicultural Affairs for the Student Association. At Cornell she was a founding member of La Voz Boriken, a social/political organization dedicated to supporting Puerto Rican political prisoners and the independence of Puerto Rico.

Rosa has written for Clamor Magazine, The Ave. magazine, The Black World Today, The Final Call and numerous websites. She has been the subject of articles in the Village Voice, The New York Times, Urban Latino and The Source magazines. She has appeared on CNN, C-Span, Democracy Now and Street Soldiers. In 2001, she was a youth representative at the United Nations World Conference against Xenophobia, Racism and Related Intolerance in South Africa and in 2002 was named by Red Eye Magazine as one of the top 50 Hip Hop Activists to look out for. In 1995, she developed Know Thy Self Productions, a full service speakers bureau, production company and media consulting service. Seeing a need for young people of color to be heard and taken seriously she began presenting workshops and lectures at colleges, universities, high schools, and prisons. In the past ten years she has presented at over 200 colleges, conferences and community centers on topics such as; African-American and Latino/a Intercultural Relations; Hip-Hop Activism; The History of the Young Lords Party; and Women, Feminism and Hip Hop. KTSP now includes an expanded college speakers bureau which has produced three major Hip Hop activism tours, "Dare to Struggle, Dare to Win" with M1 of dead prez and Fred Hampton Jr.; "The ACLU College Freedom Tour" with dead prez, DJ Kuttin Kandi, Mystic and comedian Dave Chapelle; and the "Speak Truth to Power" Tour a collaborative tour of award winning youth activists.

In 2003, Rosa helped formed and coordinate the first ever National Hip Hop Political Convention that drew over 3000 activists who came together to create and implement a national political agenda for the Hip-Hop generation. 10 days after Hurricane Katrina ravaged parts of the south, Rosa traveled to the areas as an independent journalist and her on the ground reports were reported on independent radio stations all over the world, including Air America, NPR, Pacifica Radio, Democracy Now, Indy media, Hard Knock Radio and many more independent and mainstream media outlets.

In July 2008, at the Green Party Convention, Cynthia McKinney chose her as her vice-presidential running mate.

Green Party Presidential Candidate Cynthia Ann McKinney was Georgia's first African-American Congresswoman and the only woman serving in the state's congressional delegation. She emerged as an internationally renowned advocate for voting rights, human rights.

Congresswoman McKinney was appointmented to the powerful and prestigious Armed Services Committee. She was also a member of the International Relations Committee, serving as Ranking Member on its International Operations and Human Rights Subcommittee.

For five years, she was the House sponsor of the Arms Transfers Code of Conduct, which aimed to prevent the sale of US weapons to dictators, finally passed the House in June 1997.

She was elected secretary of the freshman class by her colleagues in the 103rd Congress and was the first freshman representative to head the Women's Caucus Task Force on Children, Youth and Families. She has served as vice president of the Democratic sophomore class. Congresswoman McKinney was also a member of the Congressional Black Caucus and the Progressive Caucus and worked closely with the Hispanic Caucus.

Born in Atlanta, Georgia on March 17, 1955, Cynthia currently lives in California. She earned a B.A. in International Relations from the University of Southern California in 1978. In 1984, Cynthia worked as a Diplomatic Fellow at Spellman College in Atlanta. She also taught political science at Clark Atlanta University and later at Agnes Scott College, a women's college in Decatur, Georgia. Before being elected to Congress, Cynthia served on the board of the HIV Health Services Planning Council of Metro Atlanta from 1991-92.

Cynthia is the daughter of veteran Georgia State Representative Billy McKinney and Leola McKinney, a nurse of forty years at Grady Hospital in Atlanta. Cynthia McKinney is the proud mother of a son, Coy McKinney.

While in Congress, from 1993 - 2003, Cynthia became known as the voice for the voiceless. She provided a seat at the table for people long left out of Georgia's political and economic mainstream. She supported candidates representing the people who had been politically marginalized. The result was more hope and more representation at the local level for black people and people of low wealth throughout the rural black belt of Georgia.

It is important to note that Cynthia McKinney sponsored legislation to end the use of all depleted uranium weapons until their health effects are known. She voted against record Bush Administration Pentagon budgets and challenged the Pentagon to explain how it "lost" over $2.3 trillion in un-trackable transactions. She decried the Pentagon's sweetheart deals with Halliburton, the Carlyle Group, and DynCorp and its successor companies.

Cynthia spoke out against the loss of our fundamental freedoms during Bush Administration prosecution of the War on Terrorism and reminds Committee members of the well-known and documented abuses during the COINTELPRO era.

Her legislation to end the mining of coltan in eastern Democratic Republic of Congo was mentioned in a United Nations special report. Almost single-handedly, she forced the United Nations to convene an independent commission on the Rwanda genocide and the role of the US and the UN in failing to stop Africa's most horrific genocide.

Cynthia hosted the first delegation of Afro-Latinos from Central and South America and worked with the World Bank and the U.S. State Department to recognize Afro-Latinos. She stood with Aboriginals against Australian mining companies; and with the U'wa people of Colombia in their fight to save their sacred land from oil rigs. She stood with poor Georgia farmers, black and white, against South African mining companies operating in the US. During her tenure on the House International Relations Committee, Cynthia recognized others who championed peace and nominated President Jaochim Chissano, President of Mozambique, for the Nobel Peace Prize and he made it to the final group. In her final Congressional act, she nominated Juan Carreras for the same honor, for his work to bring peace to Democratic Republic of Congo and the Great Lakes region of Africa. Today, Cynthia continues to work with Carreras to bring justice to the dead in one of Africa's most horrific moments.

Cynthia had also begun to focus on COINTELPRO and Hip Hop empowerment. Cynthia held three Hip Hop Powershops featuring Kevin Powell, Afeni Shakur, Li'l Zane, and media executives.

She also held two COINTELPRO hearings: one on US Political Prisoners, the other on the murder of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Cynthia used her positions of influence on both the House Armed Services Committee and the House International Relations Committee to apply international human rights standards to US conduct at home and abroad.

Cynthia was tapped by the Congressional Black Caucus to lead its effort on the Durban World Conference Against Racism. Despite all her efforts on behalf of the poor and dispossessed, in Africa, Asia, Latin America, and in the United States, Cynthia learned from news reports that AIPAC, The American Israel Public Affairs Committee, had targeted her for defeat. Cynthia never lost her courage and refused to compromise her values. However, when Cynthia McKinney became one of the first Members of Congress to demand a thorough investigation into the events of September 11, 2001 and responsibly asked the question, "What did the Administration know and when did it know it about the events of September 11th?" she was vilified and targeted by Georgia and national Republicans. As a result of her thought-provoking question, an estimated 40,000 Republicans voted in the Democratic Primary to oust Cynthia. It is called "crossover" voting and her supporters filed a lawsuit against this practice so that no voice of the people like Cynthia's would ever be silenced again in such an unfair electoral practice.

Cynthia was invited to Mumbai, India to speak at the World Social Forum. She has spoken all over the United States and in Germany, France, Italy, Jamaica, and many places all over the world because she is nationally and internationally recognized for her tireless voice on behalf of justice in the United States.

The film American Blackout provides a glimpse into her heroic efforts in Congress and the efforts to oust her and "steal elections."

Under attack by the media, the Democratic Party, defeated in the 2006 Election with the assistance of malfunctioning voting machines, she was wooed by the Green Party to be their Presidential candidate.

August 4, 2008- Overcoming Individual Denial to 9/11 Truth with Carol Wolman, Ken Jenkins, Chuck Millar and Ralph Metzner (Repeat of June 9th Show)

(Part I of a Two Part Series on Denial, Part II will be on Overcoming Collective Denial)

Listen 8:00- 9:00 pm (PST) to the WeThePeopleRadioNetwork.com and to our guests- Carol Wolman, MD and Ken Jenkins

Listen 9:00- 10:00 pm (PST) to the WeThePeopleRadioNetwork.com and to our guests- Chuck Millar and Ralph Metzner

Carol Wolman, MD is a psychiatrist in Northern California. She wrote Why the Resistance to 9/11 Truth?. A lifelong peace activist, she has written extensively on the psychology of our times. She was a founder of Bay Area Impeach Bush-Cheney. She ran for Congress in '06, and is now a Green candidate for Congress in CA District 1. She is a coordinator of The New Broom Coalition, for a clean sweep of Congress. She has practiced psychiatry for many years, and penned many excellent articles including- Is the President Nuts?.

Pioneering 9/11 activist and video producer Ken Jenkins has a degree in electrical engineering from Carnegie-Mellon University, and has done extensive postgraduate study in psychology. He has worked as a video professional for over 30 years, including 7 years at Hewlett-Packard in their state-of-the-art broadcast video facility HPTV.

Ken awoke to 9/11 truth by November of 2001 and started presenting his PowerPoint and video productions on 9/11 truth in early 2002. He has since spoken at four international 9/11 conferences on the Psychological Aspects of 9/11 and participated in numerous other 9/11 events and radio programs. His first video release,“Perspective on 9/11” was originally made for the early live presentations. He has since produced dozens of 9/11 DVDs, including eight with leading 9/11 Truth author David Ray Griffin, including his best-“9/11 – The Myth and the Reality” and his latest- 9/11 and Nationalist Faith: How Faith Can Be Illuminating or Blinding.

He is also a partner in 911tv.org, which has documented speakers from many 9/11 conferences and events. The resulting DVDs, as well as those produced by others, are distributed in part through cable access channels nationwide. Ken also designed the popular 11 Remarkable Facts About 9/11 card. By revealing the “false flag” nature of the 9/11 attacks, it is Ken’s intention to not only help end the current bogus “war on terror” but to also help open the way to ending war as a political option on this planet.

Chuck Millar received his Ph.D. in Counseling Psychology from the California Institute of Integral Studies and has been in private practice as a Marriage and Family Therapist since 1987. He has been a 9/11 Truth activist since 2003, attending numerous demonstrations and engaging in conversations with people in denial about what happened on 9/11. Chuck is also a free-lance technical editor and has edited many press releases and promotional documents for the Northern California 9/11 Truth Alliance (and has helped mediate conflicts which have arisen within the group).

At the last moment, the format of the show was changed. Ralph Metzner who was scheduled to be on June 16th won't be available on the 16th, so we tried to include him in the last half hour- instead of a larger discussion. Due to technical difficulties, he was only with us for the last fifteen minutes.

Ralph Metzner, Ph.D. who has a B.A. in philosophy and psychology from Oxford University and a Ph.D. in clinical psychology from Harvard University, has been involved in the study of transformations of consciousness ever since, as a graduate student, he worked with Timothy Leary and Richard Alpert (later Ram Dass) on the Harvard Psilocybin Projects. He co-wrote The Psychedelic Experience, and was editor of The Psychedelic Review. During the 1970s, Ralph spent 10 years in the intensive study and practice of Agni Yoga, a meditative system of working with light-fire life-energies. He wrote Maps of Consciousness, one of the earliest attempts at a comparative cartography of consciousness; and Know Your Type, a comparative survey of personality typologies, ancient and modern. He was the Academic Dean for ten years, during the 1980s, at the California Institute of Integral Studies, where he taught courses there on “Altered States of Consciousness” and “Developing Ecological Consciousness.” He is now Professor Emeritus. He maintains a part-time psychotherapy practice, and conducts numerous workshops on consciousness transformation, both nationally and internationally. His books include The Well of Remembrance, The Unfolding Self, Green Psychology, two edited collections on the science and the phenomenology of Ayahuasca and Teonan├ícatl and The Expansion of Consciousness. He is the founder of the Green Earth Foundation.

(June 16th- Part II was on Overcoming Collective Denial to 9/11 Truth with sociologist Peter Phillips, director of Project Censored,
film maker and author Neil Slade.)
