Tuesday, August 24th, 9-10 a.m. Pacific (noon-1 pm Eastern) on http://NoLiesRadio.org, to be archived here a few hours after broadcast...
Ian Henshall, Coordinator of Reinvestigate 9/11 and author of 9/11 Revealed: The New Evidence, and Joshua Blakeney, Department of Globalization Studies, University of Lethbridge, will join me to discuss the role of provocation and controversy in the 9/11 truth movement...specifically, Josh's cruel, witty and merciless attack on the obnoxious war criminal propagandist and over-the-top Islamophobe Christopher Hitchens, which elicited a major article in Canada's leading neocon rag, the National Post. UK 9/11 truth leader Ian Henshall, who knew Hitchens when they were both at Oxford, will join us to expose sordid details about his former university mate.
Josh's essay, which signally fails to commiserate with the cancer-stricken Hitchens, is a calculated provocation...rather like my half-dead-serious, half-self-consciously-outrageous proposal for a mega-mosque on Ground Zero sporting gigantic Twin Minarets to replace the Towers demolished by genocidal Islamophobes. (My proposal drew a 50,000-watt interview with KDKA's Mike Pintek, was picked up by the great Muslim truther site AscertainTheTruth, and was recently honored as "the most obnoxious thing on the internet" by 9/11-truth-hater Matt Taibbi.)
Is it okay to be brash, entertaining, provocative, and even a little self-consciously obnoxious in pursuit of 9/11 truth? Or do we all have to be paranoid, humorless dweebs like Jim and Victronix?
Tune in Tuesday and find out...

First hour: Adnan Oktar, "the most influential Muslim in the world" according to a Reuters poll. Writing under the pen name Harun Yahya, Adnan Oktar's books have sold many millions of copies worldwide. He is well known for his books and articles about Islam, and is the world's most prominent spokesperson for creationism.
Mr. Oktar is a supporter of the Cordoba House Islamic Center in New York City, which has been the subject of a manufactured controversy, and challenged the official version of 9/11 during his interview with me last year. He is widely considered a leading Muslim advocate of peace, coexistence and brotherhood between the faiths.
Second hour: Thomas E. Woods, author of the important new book Nullification: How to Resist Federal Tyranny in the 21st Century. Dr. Woods (BA Harvard, Ph.D Columbia) is a historian and senior fellow at the Ludwig Von Mises Institute, and the author of ten books.
Nullification presents Thomas Jefferson's argument that states have the right to nullify unconstitutional federal laws by refusing to enforce them, or by actively impeding enforcement. Dr. Woods traces the hidden history of nullification-- a concept that was once widely accepted, but which has been gradually obscured by powerful people wielding bad arguments. Nullification is becoming increasingly prominent today as states nullify federal drug laws (by legalizing medical marijuana), the Real ID Act (by refusing to implement it), and Obamacare (by standing up for their citizens' rights to refuse to buy mandatory private health insurance). Since the Constitution explicitly lists what the federal government can do, and reserves everything else to the states and the people, it seems that the rogue regime occupying Washington D.C. has given us plenty to nullify!
Speaking of Constitutional issues...What would happen if a bunch of people generated a Constitutional test case by sending one dollar to Hamas, in violation of an unconstitutional law passed during the Clinton administration? We could argue that the federal government's prohibition against supporting Hamas, together with its mandate that all Americans pay taxes to support the Zionist regime occupying Palestine and committing genocide against the Palestinian people, violates the freedom of religion clause by establishing favoritism toward Zionist Judaism against Islam.
This prejudicial favoritism toward Zionism, and against Islam, cannot be explained by legitimate foreign policy considerations. Hamas has never attacked the USA, while Israel has repeatedly attacked us--in 1954, 1967, and most memorably on 9/11. The only explanation for the prohibition on supporting a harmless charitable group struggling against genocide, and the income tax mandate to support the perpetrators of that genocide, is that the preponderance of Jewish-Zionist power in the USA has forced our government to unconstitutionally favor Zionist Judaism over Islam.
Anybody out there willing to be one of one hundred people who would publicly send a dollar to Hamas? This would not be an actual violation of federal law, since unconstitutional laws, as Dr. Woods explains, are not laws at all.

William A. Cook is a professor of English at the University of La Verne in southern California and author of The Rape Of Palestine: Hope Destroyed, Justice Denied, Tracking Deception: Bush Mid-East Policy and The Chronicles Of Nefaria. He is editor of MWCNEWS.
In his recent article "Terrorists United Against Peace" Dr. Cook offers a logical solution to the Israel-Palestine conflict: "A recommending body of (United Nations) members, exclusive of the US and Israel, to bring forth a resolution that would effectively force a just solution to the illegally dismantled partition plan passed in 1947." He explains:
"Should such a body give priority to the resolutions passed by its members since 1948, it would recognize that Israel would have to collapse its territorial acquisitions by approximately 31% from its current illegal possession of 86% of the original Mandate land offered to them by resolution 181. This would then provide a viable contiguous Palestinian state. Alternatively, Israel could and the Palestinians could decide to live together in one state with equal citizenship for all. Should the majority of UNGA member states approve the resolution offered by their committee, a solution to the crisis might be in the offing. On the other hand, should the Israeli government reject this offer, it would find itself isolated from the world community and subject to whatever sanctions might be imposed by the UN."

Truth Jihad Radio Sat. 8/14/10, 5-7 pm Central, American Freedom Radio (archived here.) Call-in number: (402) 237-2525 or (402) AFR-252, or post your questions to my Facebook page, where Ed Rynearson of RadioDuJour will be putting up hyperlinks about matters under discussion.
First half hour: Live from the Truth Gathering! Sander Hicks, Richard Gage, Enver Masud, Luke Rudkowski, Barry Kissin, Nick Bryant, Rev. Ian Alterman, Paul Zarembka and other fine truth-seekers will be passing the phone around to report on the insights being shared at this important event. Note: This didn't come off, due to a miscommunication. The first 45 minutes of the show are me taking calls. Fast forward to 45 minutes into the show to catch Meria Heller, or go to http://www.radiodujour.com/mp3/20100814-kevin-barrett-meria-heller.mp3
Middle hour (5:30-6:30 Central): Meria Heller! The original genuinely alternative radio host, the indescribable Meria describes herself as: "Internationally known teacher of the Universal Medicine Wheel, Spiritual Teacher, Master Metaphysician, Producer and Host of 'The Meria Heller Show.'" Meria is a wise, witty, soulful truth-seeker, not to mention one of the best conversationalists on the planet!
Final half-hour: Mark Glenn and USS Liberty survivor Phil Tourney will discuss the face-to-face death threat they recently received, delivered to Phil from a self-professed Mossad agent.
What's with the sudden rash of threats to honest journalists? Are the bad guys trying to silence opposition in advance of an attack on Iran and possible WWIII? Or, as Tuesday's guest Israel Shamir writes, should we Fear Not? FYI Jonathan Mark just passed on the story that:
The first journalists to bring the "PharmaWHO" fraud to light, Dr. Leonard G. Horowitz, and Jane Burgermeister, are both in serious jeopardy from BigPhama reprisals. Horowitz has been falsely framed in the recent murder of Britain's leading financial whistleblower, Edward Harle; while Burgermeister is fighting against attacks by Austrian government officials instigated by BigPharma operatives.

Israel Shamir is an internationally acclaimed radical spiritual and political thinker, Internet columnist and writer. He is the author of three books, Galilee Flowers, Cabbala of Power and recently published Masters of Discourse available in English, French, German, Spanish, Russian, Arabic, Norwegian, Swedish, Italian, Hungarian etc. His recent article Turkey is the Key offers a visionary proposal for an Eastern Union to balance the EU.
I first met Israel Shamir when he kindly endorsed the Muslim-Jewish-Christian Alliance for 9/11 Truth, then re-encountered him when he unkindly dissed me for dissing Chomsky -- and got lots of responses from readers. (He apparently didn't understand that I had published my email exchanges with Chomsky not because I dislike Chomsky's position on 9/11, but because Chomsky was acting in extremely bad faith in our email dialogue and I saw no other way to call him on it.)
Anyway, I'm looking forward to the conversation with Israel Shamir, one of the most stimulating political writers of our time.

First hour: Craig Ranke of Citizen Investigation Team (CIT), makers of the documentary National Security Alert, will discuss the CIT tour of Europe scheduled around this upcoming 9/11 anniversary. Craig will also discuss 911blogger's bizarre decision to censor Barrie Zwicker's ringing endorsement of CIT.
Barrie Zwicker: "The evidence now shows, well past reasonable doubt, what happened. It was detonation of explosives within the building, timed to coincide with a flyover by a large jet plane, thus producing the clever illusion that flight 77 crashed into the Pentagon, heart of the official 9/11 Pentagon lie . . . To add insult to insult, the same perpetrators have assigned disinformation specialists to attack the honest citizen detectives of CIT. This suggests, to me at least, that hidden behind and within the dark and treasonous false flag deception carried out at the Pentagon on 9/11 are even darker secrets. To me, two most important questions now, almost nine years after the events, urgently call out for investigation. First, who are those behind the vicious attempts to discredit the work of the Citizen Investigation Team? Second, what are the motives of the would-be discreditors and those behind them? I say 'attempts' because careful examination of the arguments CIT’s tormentors show them to be tricky and unreliable -- as flimsy as the official story they try to defend."
Speaking of the would-be discreditors, 9/11 sex stalker Brian "The Axis of" Good has made CIT one of his prime targets for disruption and cyber-stalking. The Axis of Good has also targeted Carol Brouillet, William Rodriguez, and me. (I suppose Barrie Zwicker is next.) I can't think of a greater badge of honor than to be singled out along with these courageous and talented truth-seekers.
Second hour: Enver Masud of The Wisdom Fund (twf.org), board member of Muslims for 9/11 Truth and author of the terrific new essay Fear Paralyzes US Muslim "Leaders". We will be discussing our progress awakening the Islamic community to 9/11 truth, and how to counter the septic tidal wave of Islamophobia washing over the former USA.
Note: Enver Masud will be appearing at The Truth Gathering in the Catskills of New York State next week, August 14th-16th along with Richard Gage, Luke Rudkowski, Barry Kissin, Nick Bryant, Paul Zarembka, Rev. Ian Alterman, and Raphael Diaz, and of course the organizer, Sander Hicks. Directions. Schedule. Next week's show will include a live update from participants.

Webster Tarpley, author of 9/11 Synthetic Terror, Obama: The Unauthorized Biography, Surviving the Cataclysm, and much more will discuss his critically important new article Obama Is Preparing to Bomb Iran.
Tarpley isn't the only one warning that the neocons (read Zionist dual-citizen fanatics) are back in the saddle and about to lead the US off a cliff.
Here are some other important recent articles on the same topic:
The Real Aim of Israel’s Bomb Iran Campaign
By Gareth Porter
July 30, 2010 "Information Clearing House" -- Reuel Marc Gerecht's screed justifying an Israeli bombing attack on Iran coincides with the opening of the new Israel lobby campaign marked by the introduction of House Resolution 1553 expressing full support for such an Israeli attack.
What is important to understand about this campaign is that the aim of Gerecht and of the right-wing government of Benjamin Netanyahu is to support an attack by Israel so that the United States can be drawn into direct, full-scale war with Iran.
That has long been the Israeli strategy for Iran, because Israel cannot fight a war with Iran without full U.S. involvement. Israel needs to know that the United States will finish the war that Israel wants to start... (full article here)
“Every war when it comes, or before it comes, is represented not as a war but as an act of self-defense against a homicidal maniac.” - George Orwell
On July 22nd a House Resolution was proposed by 47 US Representatives – led by Rep. Louis Buller Gohmert, Republican Representative from Texas’s 1st congressional district; House Resolution 1553... (full article here)
THE HIDDEN FACE OF SANCTIONS
By Dr. Alan Sabrosky* (who will soon be returning to my show to follow up on his groundbreaking "Israel did 9/11 and the US military knows it" appearance a few months ago -KB)
The sanctions imposed recently against Iran by the United Nations, and later separately by the US Congress, have one thing in common. Both were driven by the US at the instigation of Israel.
But they are also, I believe, generally misunderstood. Sanctions are normally intended to alter the behavior of the country being sanctioned — to punish it for what it is doing, to keep it from continuing practices or policies others find objectionable, or both.
And overtly, that is the function of these sanctions. But that is not their actual purpose.
Now, I do not know whether Iran’s government has a hidden military agenda to its nuclear program. Given Israel’s own nuclear capabilities, and the very different fates of Iraq (which had no nuclear weapons) and North Korea (which did), any sensible country anywhere on Israel’s enemies list — which is by extension today America’s target list — would acquire a deliverable nuclear capability by any means whatsoever as soon as possible.
But the reality is to see sanctions against Iran in the same light as inspections for the non-existent WMDs (weapons of mass destruction) in Iraq in 2002-2003. In those days, the US and its close partners kept insisting that Iraq had WMDs when none of the inspectors on the ground, including the US representatives, found or believed it had.
Yet the claims persisted, and the purpose was to condition the US public for a war that need never have happened, except for Israel and its partisans in the US. And they succeeded. Americans generally believed the false claims, generally supported the war against Iraq, and whatever disenchantment occurred took place only because the war and the subsequent occupation did not proceed as smoothly as its architects had intended.
This is the pattern being repeated against Iran. The real purpose of sanctions is not to affect the policies of the Iranian government, because nothing it does will affect the sanctions. It is to prepare the US public for an attack against Iran, almost certainly in conjunction with Israel, to destroy Israel’s last remaining competitor in the region and to provide a cover for Israel’s expulsion of the Palestinians from the West Bank and Gaza, into Jordan and the Sinai respectively.
So it would be unwise either to disregard sanctions or to try to accommodate them. The only sensible response, I believe, for Iran and its friends is to put in place something that the US would not dare to attack. That inevitably means something with or from China or India, especially the former, no matter what the cost — because anything expended to preclude a US-Israeli strike would be far cheaper than enduring that strike and its aftermath, even if the region then exploded in America’s face. Watching an enemy suffer is fine, but not at that price
