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
Dennis Kucinich’s articles of impeachment against Vice President
H.R. 333." Then she introduced the master of ceremonies, award-winning
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
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
speaking in Sacramento, Oakland, San Francisco, Campbell, Monterey,
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
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
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
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
professionals have joined Architects and Engineers for 9/11 Truth to
for new investigations of the destruction of the World Trade Center.
