[Current Green Party Presidential Candidate, then] Congresswoman Cynthia McKinney grills Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld on the Pentagon's missing trillions, DynCorp's slave trade, and the 9/11 wargames.  House Hearing on FY06 Dept. of Defense Budget, March 11, 2005.

If you were told by corporate media that Congresswoman McKinney was defeated by another Democratic Congressperson, because she had a run in with a guard at the Capitol, your head must still be spinning because of the multiple lies and distortions corporate media has hit you with. Let’s untangle the lies. 

    Attacks on McKinney: Cynthia McKinney Smeared for Questioning 911

Cynthia McKinney is a key to the corporate media, Democratic, Republican suppression of 9/11 truth, and her story is very illuminating. 

It all began with her appearance on KPFA, Pacifica Radio, in San Francisco on March 25, 2002.  But, let’s set the stage a bit. Remember this was only seven months after 9/11, after Leahy and Daschle, the only opposition Party members leading challenges to the Patriot Act had been sent US military grade anthrax in the mail, and at a point when too many of the Democrats were fighting with one another to see who could kiss George W. Bush’s *ss first.

On this regional radio program Congresswoman McKinney had the good sense to state several things that seem so obvious now, but to the trembling frightened sheep we called our Congress and Senate on the Dem side, and the goose-stepping GOP on the other side . . . McKinney’s words seemed heretical. 

One truth she stated was the obvious, that our Presidency was stolen in 2000: 

Cynthia McKinney (in March, 2002 interview):
“In November 2000, Republicans stole from America our most precious right of all: the right to free and fair elections. In an organized manner, Florida Governor Jeb Bush and his Secretary of State Katherine Harris created a list of convicted felons--57,700 to be exact--to "scrub" from the state's voter rolls. The names were created from Florida records and from lists provided by 11 other states, the largest list coming from Texas. We now know that most of the people on that list were innocent of crimes. The list was a phony. And worse, the majority of these rightful voters were  people of color and likely Democratic voters.

Of the thousands who ultimately lost their vote through this scrub of voters, 80% are African-American. Had they voted, the course of history would have changed: Harris declared Bush the victor by only 537 votes.  President Carter has said that the Carter Center would not certify the US 2000 Presidential elections had they had been asked to do so. Consequently, an Administration of questionable legitimacy has been given unprecedented power to fight America's new war against terrorism.” 

Another truth she stated was the UN-Americanism of Homeland Security and Torture:

Cynthia McKinney (in March, 2002 interview):
”In February 2001, The United States Commission on National Security, including Newt Gingrich, recommended that the National Homeland Security Agency be established along with a hefty price tag. Most people chuckled at the suggestion.

After September 11, we have OK'd the targeting and profiling of certain groups of people in America while not arresting in any way the racial profiling and discrimination that existed prior to September 11. Mass arrests, detention without charge, military tribunals, and infringements on due process rights are now realities in America.

Even more alarming are  the calls in some circles to allow the use of torture and other brutal methods in pursuit of so-called justice.” 


But, the truth that McKinney touched that was so quintessentially important, was the one that unleashed the media and political attack dogs on her.  It was her recognition that Bush’s family and Bin Laden’s family both profited handsomely from a company that profited handsomely from the 9/11 attacks.  AND, that we knew that Bush had multiple warnings of coming attacks BEFORE 9/11/2001, and yet warned no other Americans.  However, perhaps what sealed her fate was suggesting Americans needed to know WHO made the mysterious stock trades betting against companies that would be affected negatively on 9/11/2001, which was uncovered by Michael C. Ruppert in his 9/11 research of stock trades that led to a well known CIA connected institution as well.
