- Subject: GPO releases McCarthy Hearings (1953-54) transcripts
6 May 2003
The Senate Permanent Investigations Subcommittee in 1954 was chaired by Senator Joseph McCarthy, who began a witchhunt against alleged communist subversives and infiltrators in the federal sector and the private world. It created a mood of fear and recrimination similar to the one we live in today. McCarthy was set like a dog on this path by Army intelligence and then stopped when he bit the hand that fed him.
The transcripts of the closed sessions of his hearings have finally been released after 50 years, which is the same limit put on the files relating to the assassination of Dr. Martin Luther King and other Congressional investigations as the request of any chairman. These interrogations include Langston Hughes, Corliss Lamont and others. They show the venality of McCarthy and his aides like Roy Cohn.
If we don't want to live under this same sort of attack, we must fight for the principles that it violated then and threatens to now and expose it before it begins. This link will take you to a page that allows text or PDF versions to be seen of the transcripts.

- Subject: One year since September 11: an unprecedented assault on democratic rights
11 May 2003
This hits the nail on the head, and 9/11 is the pretext. This is why deconstructing the lies around 9/11 is so important. I have started 9-11 Citizens Watch (PO Box 772, Washington, DC 20044) with Kyle Hence to serve as a watchdog over the work of the current Commission on Terrorist Acts that is investigating the incident, to be sure they ask the right questions and that they are as public and transparent as possible. Like most noble causes it has sparse resources. Please consider making a tax-deductible donation to this work (make checks to Washington Peace Center, 1426 W. 9th St., NW #306, Washington, DC 20001 and write 9-11 Citizens Watch in the memo line).

12 May 2003
Thanks for your honest and refreshing review of Zwicker's work on 9/11. If we had a press instead of a corporate Wulitzer in this country perhaps these and other questions could be raised for more than 20 seconds. I to am known as a "conspiracy theorist" for asking the obvious but disconcerting questions that arise when "official" statements conflict with reality and evidence. That's ok with me as long as you call everyone else a "coincidence theorist".
I am currently working with other serious researchers on a newly formed 9/11 Citizens Watch group, based in DC, that is working to influence the offical Commission on Terrorist Acts to ask the right questions and be transparent and public in their investigation. They are already encountering obstruction of access to evidence from the White House and the Justice Department, who have blocked any real investigation in 9/11 from the beginning.
However, the questions that remain unanswered about that event and the official explanations that have followed will eventually expose the lies being told about an event that is used continually to justify wars abroad as well as curtailment of civil liberties and the inception of a police state at home. If we can crack the truth of 9/11, the whole house of cards will go down. Thanks for being a journalist.John Judge

- Subject: The Man Behind the Curtain
17 May 2003
Mike Ruppert's ad (in PDF format) that appeared in the Washington Post. One wonders what the impact will be. Too many issues at once in my view, and the main questions of 9/11 still not addressed. He gives good websites for more information, some of which will lead people to 9/11 Citizen's Watch, which is woefully underfunded. We are in conference with the new Commission staff about the investigation and the public hearings.
