It wasn't long after I got there that Wonder Woman kicked off the event by explaining that "we were rallying to bring attention to Representative Dennis Kucinich’s articles of impeachment against Vice President Cheney, H.R. 333." Then she introduced the master of ceremonies, award-winning investigative journalist and host of 94.1FM KPFA’s Flashpoints, Dennis Bernstein.


What I remember of Dennis's comments was that he called NPR "National Petroleum Radio", and that he accused them of taking money from Haliburton, Chevron, and other supporters of the war effort. He also said a few words about how the Bush/Cheney regime needs to be impeached. After that he introduced August Bullock, AKA Superman, who sang a song, the gist of which was that it is up to us to make our government obey the law.


The next speaker was Dr. Bob Bowman, Lt. Col., USAF, ret., who flew 101 combat missions in Vietnam and directed the "Star Wars" weapons programs under presidents Ford and Carter. After retiring from the Air Force in 1978 Dr. Bowman, whose Ph.D. is in Aeronautics from Caltech, managed advanced space programs in industry.  He resigned in 1982 when he felt that his job inhibited his ability to challenge US programs of offensive space weapons. Dr. Bowman has spoken out about the need for new investigations of 9/11, and charged Bush and his cronies with treason in 2003.  Appearing locally in his "Patriot Tour," Bowman calls for a government that (1) Follows the Constitution, (2) Honors the Truth, and (3) Serves the People. He will be speaking in Sacramento, Oakland, San Francisco, Campbell, Monterey, Santa Cruz and Kentfield between June 8th and 14th.

If you get a chance to see Dr. Bowman speak, go for it.


Richard Gage, AIA, the founding member of Architects and Engineers for 9/11 Truth has, in 20 years of practicing architecture, worked on numerous fire-proofed steel-framed buildings. Most recently he has performed construction administration for a new $120M High School campus including a $10M steel-framed gymnasium, and is currently engaged in design development for a 1.5 million square foot retail/office project utilizing about 1,200 tons of steel framing. Gage's interest in 9/11 began when Dr. David Ray Griffin spoke on KPFA radio about the catastrophic disintegration of the World Trade Center towers and Building 7.   Gage was so shocked he pulled his car to the side of the road to listen. He investigated the facts for himself, and has since shared his findings in public presentations to over 75 architects in the Bay Area, and to universities, including San Diego, Sonoma, Chico, and Winnipeg in Canada. Over 100 architecture and engineering professionals have joined Architects and Engineers for 9/11 Truth to call for new investigations of the destruction of the World Trade Center.

Janette MacKinlay is a 9/11 survivor, author and artist.  From her apartment across the street she witnessed the destruction of WTC 1. Her book "Fortunate: A Personal Diary of 9/11" recounts her struggle to come to terms through her ikebana art with her memories of that day.


Victoria accepted an award for Jim Hoffman, who created an excellent website- and gave some of the earliest talks challenging the official "collapse" theory about the buildings, with a special focus on Building Number 7, which the press and the 9/11 Report have not been able to explain and have tried to ignore.

Aaron Dames, a junior at San Francisco State University studying International Relations.  Since investigating 9/11, he has worked to educate the public, primarily through weekly meetings and campus and library film screenings. Earlier this year he demonstrated in front of the White House and Capitol building and will return to DC in July. He works at a hostel in San Francisco.


Cosmos was the last award recipient. He is the host of Truth Revolution on We The People Radio Network, founded the National Days of Truth Action Campaign, at In just a few months, Cosmos's vision for Truth Events on the 11th of every month has spread from San Francisco to 35 cities in 6 countries.




After that we marched around Palo Alto, handing out literature, chanting about the need to impeach the Bush Administration, and generally attracting lots of attention for our cause.

We finished up our mission at Anna Eshoo's office, where we posed for this group shot before going in to give her office a large stack of petitions calling for her to support HR 333. The guy behind the desk is getting used to us visiting on a monthly basis now, so it wasn't as chaotic as it was the first time.



There is a long review of the above book you can read by clicking here.

When I left the plaza was returning to its natural state as a place to hang out for people with spare time.

Special thanks to Carol Brouillet for making it all possible!
