MAN BEHIND THE HEADLINES:
Los Angeles, May 2005…Spending nearly $4 million in America, Jimmy Walter has launched advertising blitzes in the most prominent newspapers and magazines, including full-page color ads in Business Week, Forbes, Newsweek, the New York Times, Washington Post, Readers Digest, New Yorker, etc., entitled "Are We Safer Now? According to Mr. Walter, The 9/11 Report has been published, but some very troubling questions remain unanswered." Mr. Walter is now prepared to do the same in Europe, launching a mega tour throughout Europe including Amsterdam, Vienna, Rome, Berlin, Paris, Madrid, London and Manchester, England.
Walter first turned to paid advertising two years ago when he saw the
mainstream press self-censoring to support the impending Iraqi
quagmire. He felt impelled to get the word out that Colin Powell had
lied before for the George H. W. Bush administration and was lying
again to the American people, the Congress, and the UN to falsely
justify another Gulf War which would increase terrorism, create a new
Vietnam, and cause an economic disaster for America. Presciently, his
predictions have all come true: the war has increased terrorism against
the American people, jobs are scarce, oil is running out, and the world
economy and environment are being wrecked by Bush's fanatical actions.
Despite the fact that Walter's car was attacked with a 25-pound
boulder, and that anonymous people have threatened him, Walter
continues his courageous crusade against the Bush administration.
Walter has more than war on his mind. Even though he is a successful businessman he supports organized labor and a living wage. While in New York City to protest the Republican National Convention, he carried a sign saying, "Fair pay for Firemen and Police". "The police, firemen, EMS, sanitation, and other public labor forces do not have the right to strike or even protest. I have always supported labor as the smart thing for the whole economy", said Walter. He believes that the Republican mayor and governor have perpetrated an injustice on New York's Finest, firemen, and other essential service employees. Walter says, "I believe in "flood up" economics, not "trickle down". If the people at the bottom get money, they spend it, business makes more profits, and more people are hired. The Bush tax giveaway to the rich went to higher interest bearing banks and bonds abroad, not to buy American."
As a patriot, philanthropist, activist with a genius IQ (Cum Laud at Asheville Prep School and winner of the prestigious Morehead Scholarship (www.moreheadfoundation.org) at UNC. Today. Walter is parlaying his knowledge of business, finance, psychology, economics, behavior management, religion, computer science, and philosophy to build a truly sustainable Eco-Utopian society.
TOUR PARTICIPANTS INCLUDE:
Zwicker says he has decided to devote the rest of his life to uncovering what happened on 9/11/01 . He's currently writing now about 9/11 with some emphasis on exploring the issue of why people don't question that the US military didn't intervene in this attack, that the US Government had the names of the alleged perpetrators minutes after the attack, but didn't stop them before, etc.--many pieces of information that should cause people to question the official story.
Webster Griffin Tarpley
During several summers he traveled from Norway to the Middle East on bicycle trips, crossing Germany, Switzerland, Italy, the Balkans, Greece, Turkey and a number of Middle Eastern countries. Several summers were spent working as a lifeguard on an Israeli kibbutz in the Jordan Valley. Through traveling and course work, Bollyn has learned to converse in several languages.
After three years he returned to the United States and began studies at the University of California at Davis. In 1992, after spending a year studying in Norway and the newly independent Baltic states of the former Soviet Union, Bollyn received a bachelor's degree in history from the University of California at Santa Cruz.Bollyn's area of specialty was Israel and Palestine, and the Middle Eastern wars that have arisen out of this core conflict.
In 2000, while working with IBM Global Network Services, Bollyn discovered a book on the Kennedy assassination entitled Final Judgment by Michael Collins Piper. After donating a copy of the book to the Schaumburg library, Bollyn discovered a censorship process at work at the library. This led to a First Amendment controversy and an event at the library in which Mr. Piper presented his case to an audience of 200.
In June of 2000, Bollyn began working with The Spotlight, a populist newspaper and predecessor of American Free Press, in Washington, D.C. His first assignment was to photograph the Bilderberg conference attendees as they met at Chateau du Lac, Genval (near Brussels), Belgium. Since then, Bollyn has covered 3 other Bilderberg conferences, exposing the membership of that secret and elite organization.
While returning to Washington from a weekend in Vermont, the Bollyn family passed through New York City in the early morning hours of September 11, 2001. Unable to return to Washington, the Bollyn family traveled on small roads to their home in Chicago.
Bollyn immediately began writing and investigating the crimes of 9/11 and has continued his research to this day. Many key discoveries about the attacks have been uncovered through Bollyn's research over the years.
He has also brought forth important information, not published before, about the intrigue behind the sinking of the Baltic ferry Estonia (Sept. 28, 1994) and the health effects caused by the use of depleted uranium weapons by the United States armed forces.
Bollyn's other areas of interest include the widespread use of insecure electronic voting machines and the undemocratic aspects of globalization, such as the European Union.
When President George W. Bush came to Ground Zero two days after the 9/11 attack, he urged everyone to shop. Ironically, the expression – Shop Till You Drop – would have been more appropriate. In fact, the raw truth about the air is that is was, as scientist Marjorie Clarke says, “Equivalent to dozens of asbestos factories, incinerators and crematoria.”
The White House Council on Environmental Quality changed EPA's press releases turning warnings of asbestos into reassurances. The EPA also said "The air is safe to breathe" at the World Trade Center. This has seriously injured the health of Manhattan workers and residents. It is even killing some of the heroes who worked at Ground Zero.
Christine Whitman, EPA administrator, and Mayor Giuliani lied to New Yorkers and visitors from around the world that there were "no significant problems". Shockingly and no consciousness of forethought, the New York City Dept of Health told residents to clean their apartments with a wet mop or wet rag.
And, despite the studies which continue to point to the hazards of exposure to Ground Zero contaminants, neither the federal government nor New York City has yet cleaned up the city's firehouses. One firefighter who did not join the department until after the World Trade Center fires had gone out has now been found to have new onset asthma attributable to exposure at his firehouse near Ground Zero.
Plain and simply — extremely hazardous materials became airborne when the World Trade Center disintegrated and thus posed a most serious health threat to people who live and work in the downtown area, not just ground Zero.
Public trust in government has diminished as some workers and residents have become sick and required medical attention. It is time that the various governmental agencies at the federal, state, and local level do whatever is necessary to protect the public health and safety and thereby regain the public's trust.
Comprehensive, representative testing has yet to be performed in the area affected by the dust and fires of the disaster. Following a year of discussions with the World Trade Center Expert Technical Review Panel, the EPA is expected to release a new sampling plan within a few weeks. A preliminary plan submitted to a panel of outside technical experts was found wanting in several areas including quality control, number of contaminants to be studied and reliance on a 'signature' to determine the presence of World Trade Center dust.
