LA 911 Conference Great Success

Take a look at what Charlie Sheen says here:

Here is some news from Prison Planet:

American Scholars Symposium A Huge Success
Attendees from around the globe attest to 'best 9/11 truth conference ever'

Paul Joseph Watson|Prison|June 26 2006

Over 1200 attendees from as far afield as Japan, Great Britain and Australia converged on the Sheraton Hotel in Los Angeles to enjoy a conference that they later described as the best 9/11 truth symposium ever, the highlight of which was a personal appearance and speech by Hollywood star and 9/11 truth crusader Charlie Sheen.

People from as far away as Japan and Australia made the long-haul trip to L.A. to view slick presentations from numerous high profile speakers. Media organizations from Great Britain and Australia were also represented as well as over 100 alternative press outlets.

BYU physics professor Steven Jones' authoritative lecture on the use of incendiary devices in the demolition of the trade towers and building 7 went further than ever before in its conclusive tone on the issue. Jones has now tested steel samples from two different sites that both clearly show the use of thermate as a tool of implosion and the analysis has been verified by two other universities.

Lt. Col. Robert M. Bowman, the former head of the Star Wars weapons defense system and Ph.D. in Aeronautics and Nuclear Engineering from Cal Tech, also gave a powerful presentation on the NORAD 9/11 stand down which was extremely well received.

The highlight for many was the surprise personal appearance of Hollywood star, current TV hit and recent shining addition to the ranks of noted 9/11 whistleblowers Charlie Sheen, who received a rapturous ovation before his speech on the courage of those who went before him in standing up to an unpalatable truth in the name of freedom.

♪ Global Alliance for Departments/Ministries of Peace Emerging ♪ - 41 min 02 sec - 9.5MB

PodCast GIF

I am writing this at my old friends house (Janis Levine) in Seattle where I am spending a night before leaving for Japan after the four day Summit for an International Intiative for Departments of Peace. This time, unlike the first time in London last October, we had delegates from the 3rd world countries like Uganda, the Solomon Islands, Nepal, the Phlippines and India, (Palestine and Israel were there, too, but they were in London at the first Summit). Having all these 3rd world countries join us made our experience so much richer.

The US movement continues to be the leader of our campaign, with Dot Maver who has been doing amazing organizing and supporting for the whole movement along with the wonderful staff members at Peace Alliance. We are very fortunate we have such a strong movement in the USA, because the decisions of the US affect all of us in the world.

On the way to here from Victoria, I met several people on the Victoria Clipper (The name of the boat we took.) who were interested in learning more about the DoP initiative. I gave them my contact info and the URL of the Peace Alliance:

You can lobby anywhere, any time, with anyone! It's fun!

I already miss my new global family with whom I know I will work for a long time. In the podcast you can listen to what some of the delegates say about the Departments/Ministries of Peace. I wish I could have recorded all the voices of the delegates, at least one from each country (about 17 countries participated), but due to time restraints, I could only include some. Still, by listening to them you can get some idea of their thinking and of our work.

At the end of the Summit, Japan was selected to be the host of the next Summit in 2007 by a majority vote... Other countries that were nominated included Australia, India, Romania, the Philippines, England and Costa Rica. During the final stage of the selection, India and Japan were the last remaining countries. At that point, the Indian delegate, Krishuna, stood up and said, "I would like to support my Japanese friends who are struggling to preserve Article 9, the Peace Constitution of Japan, and if having the Summit in Japan helps the peace movement in Japan, I would like to drop out and maybe be the host next time."

As soon as he said that, every body recognized the importance of Article 9 for peace building around the world.

The process of choosing the next host country was so fair, open, caring and beautiful that I cried after Japan was chosen. The Summit in Japan will be held on or around Sep 21, 2007, The International Day of Peace. Everyone wants it to take place in Hiroshima. That would be another challenge as I live far away from Hiroshima. We have a lot of work ahead...

I mean to build a strong team in Japan to host the next Summit. This will be very challenging for me and my family, but I know I can get all kinds of support from the new friends I met in this conference.

Working for peace gives you a lot of joy and satisfaction indeed.

[Updated June 17th: Now includes a short interview with Jimmy recorded at Yumi’s home the day after Jimmy’s Foreign Correspondents’ Club presentation]

Jimmy Walter at the Foreign Correspondents’ Club, Tokyo

I hope you will listen to Jimmy Walter's presentation at The Foreign Correspondents' Club of Japan that is included here.

Jimmy arrived the evening of June 14 at Narita Airport. We were there to greet him but he didn't come out of the security gate until one hour after his plane landed. We were quite nervous until we met him, wondering all the while if he had been stopped at immigration by the Japanese police or something like that.

Jimmy has had many attacks, death threats, his house broken into, computers stolen, etc. But he is here now with us... What an honor to have such a wonderful human being who devotes his life to saving not only America but also the entire world from the real terror!

This is the joy of doing peace work... You keep meeting wonderful people. I am so blessed.

Enjoy and learn from his presentation!

Jimmy Walter, a businessman from the U.S., is the founder of a campaign titled "Reopen 9.11." This campaign is working to challenge the official explanation for the events of September 11, 2001, which hold that al-Qaida operatives were responsible for perpetrating multiple terrorist attacks in the United States. (Campaign website:

For example, the U.S. government states that the World Trade Center building collapsed when its steel was weakened from the heat of the flames that broke out after it was struck by airliners--a claim that Brigham Young University physics professor Steven Jones explains is physically impossible. See his detailed explanation here.

Currently Mr. Walter is on a European tour to expose the truth behind the events of 911 and is coming to speak in Japan for the first time. We were hoping Mr. Walter would be joined by William Rodriguez, who was the last person to escape from inside the towers before they collapsed, however Mr. Rodriguez will not be able to attend.

Come and hear for yourself a completely different perspective from what is being presently accepted by mainstream media--a view that is gaining a growing number of followers around the world.

The lecture will be in English, with Japanese interpretation provided by Gen Morita and Yumi Kikuchi.

Four Page 911 Story In Flash!

Flash Mag GIF

The latest issue of the Japanese mens magazine Flash (Issue 916) has printed a four page story on the alleged 911 hijackers that have subsequently been found to be alive and well.

There are many such articles covering this matter in the western media but till this publication, few to be found in the mainstream Japan media. For example, here is one story from the BBC.

It is interesting to note that NONE of the names of the hijackers can be found on the passenger manifests of the hijacked flights.

Both Benjamin Fulford and myself were interviewed for the story, though I am not quoted in the article at all.

There are so many strange areas in the official 911 story it is amazing that most people have believed it without a question for so long!

NY Times Report on Chicago 911 Truth Conference

I wanted to go to Chicago for this event very much, but couldn't, so I asked Benjamin Fulford, the author of the 911 story that appeared in the January issue of the Weekly Post to attend this conference. Check out this previous post to learn about Benjamin and the Weekly post article. He should be in Chicago now and will report to us the latest developments in the 911 Truth Movement in the USA.

Here is the NY Times article covering the event. (You need to be a registered user to see the full story. Registration is free!)

Great coverage, isn't it? Finally mainstream media started picking up this most important issue.

Would you like a puppy?

Universal National Service Act of 2006

Did you know about this?
They are going to start the discussion on this bill today:2006-06-06, 666!

February 14, 2006, Congressman Charles Rangel (Democrat - NY) introduced a bill (Universal National Service Act of 2006 - HR 4752 IH) aiming at drafting everyone - men and women alike - from the ages of 18 to 42 into the military for a minimum period of 2 years.

To quote the bill: "To provide for the common defense by requiring all persons in the United States, including women, between the ages of 18 and 42 to perform a period of military service or a period of civilian service in furtherance of the national defense and homeland security, and for other purposes."

The House is to convene on June 6 (06/06/06] to debate and possibly adopt this bill, that is, unless a vast public outcry succeeds in derailing this insanity, which you can do by writing a letter of protest to your congress person through

Phone calls are even better. The numbers of all US Representatives can be found at:

The Unthinkable!

Haditha Massacre 1 JPG

My friend from Hawaii sent me this story that was published in the UK Sunday Times
Sarah Baxter, Washington (The Sunday Times) Hala Jaber and Ali Rifat, Baghdad

PHOTOGRAPHS taken by American military intelligence have provided crucial evidence that up to 24 Iraqis were massacred by marines in Haditha, an insurgent stronghold on the banks of the Euphrates.

One portrays an Iraqi mother and young child, kneeling on the floor, as if in prayer. They have been shot dead at close range...

Please read the full story here.

Now all the major news outlets are covering this horrible event. The BBC has posted two videos about the event. Have a look at the first here, and the second here.

Jack Murtha  JPG

Democratic Congressman, Jack Murtha, a former Marine, spoke out strongly against the war in Iraq! Click here to watch the interview (6.5 MB). Listen to him talk about the total lack of progress for the rebuilding of Iraq... Things have simply not improved as the US government claims they have. Murtha believes that before the year is out, Republicans will be asking to get the US troops out of Iraq! Let us hope so! The sooner the better.

As my friend who alerted me to the story says...

Stop the War! End the Occupation! Bring the Troops Home Now!

1. Mourn all victims of violence. 2. Reject war as a solution. 3. Defend civil liberties. 4. Oppose all discrimination: anti-Islamic, anti-Semitic, etc. 5. Seek peace through justice in Hawai`i and around the world.
