Science superstar Lynn Margulis, politics superstar Mike Gravel, and insurgent candidate Eric Sayward on Truth Jihad Radio

Truth Jihad Radio this Saturday, December 5th, 5-7 p.m. Central, (archived a few days later at

First half-hour: Eric Sayward will announce his candidacy for U.S. House of Representatives, Wisconsin’s 3rd District, against pro-war pro-bankster bailout anti-Constitution Rep. Ron Kind. (Youtube video: Eric Sayward confronts Ron Kind.) Eric Sayward is a web developer who does high-end databases for a living — and fights an infowar against the banksters, warmongers and traitors in his spare time. As a former US Army Combat Engineer whose specialty was explosives, Eric knows that the World Trade Center was destroyed by controlled demolition — a fact he has discussed with ex-Navy Seal explosives expert Governor Jesse Ventura (we’ll try to play the clip). PLEASE CONSIDER FOLLOWING ERIC’S EXAMPLE AND RUNNING FOR CONGRESS IN 2010!

Second half hour: Sen. Mike Gravel, one of America’s few genuine statesmen. Gravel courageously resisted the Vietnam war as a young Senator, and later founded The Democracy Foundation, which advocates direct (i.e. real) democracy. Get involved at . In 2008 he provided the only spark of life in the plastic, stage-managed Democratic primary race by telling some hard truths in the televised debates. He then joined the Libertarian primary race, where he was by far the best candidate, yet narrowly lost to a couple of Republican infiltrators. Sen. Gravel was a supporter of the New York City 9/11 Ballot Initiative, and may be speaking out more forcefully than ever before for 9/11 truth during this interview!

Second hour: National Medal of Science winner and 9/11 truth-teller Lynn Margulis. Lynn is one of the most important minds on the planet. Together with James Lovelock she brought us the Gaia hypothesis of a homeostatic biosphere, and among evolutionary biologists she is one of the biggest names, and THE most prestigious challenger to neo-Darwinian orthodoxy. Recently Lynn, a fellow U.W.-Madison alumnus, was the featured story in the U.W. alumni magazine. The article neglected to mention Lynn’s support for 9/11 truth, so I responded with this letter, which they have not printed:

Thank you for the terrific article on Lynn Margulis, the courageous scientist-author who is revolutionizing evolutionary biology. But you forgot to mention that Lynn’s ahead-of-her-time truth-telling isn’t just revolutionizing science. She has described 9/11 as “the most successful and most perverse publicity stunt in the history of public relations…Whoever is responsible for bringing to grizzly fruition this new false-flag operation, which has been used to justify the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq as well as unprecedented assaults on research, education, and civil liberties, must be perversely proud of their efficient handiwork…I suggest that those of us aware and concerned demand that the glaringly erroneous official account of 9/11 be dismissed as a fraud and a new, thorough, and impartial investigation be undertaken.”

As a fellow U.W. alum now blacklisted from teaching in the University of Wisconsin system for saying what Lynn Margulis and thousands of other professors, engineers, architects, scientists, former top military and intelligence leaders, and other experts have said about 9/11 (see I wish you had informed your readers about Lynn’s thoughts on this critically important issue. You might also have mentioned that Lynn and her co-author/son Dorion Sagan are favorite regular guests on my radio shows (see

    Keep going Kevin!
    William Rodriquez was recently with Rosie O'Donnell on her new Sirius show (archived on Radio Du Jour). He has new movie to promote.

  2. Thanks for reminding me to book William ASAP! I saw a preview version of his new movie and it's great. His Rosie interview was also excellent.

    I hope someone encourages Professor Margulis to write to Ariana Huffington. During the Van Jones affair, the brilliant Huffington, a left gatekeeper if there ever was one, called the 9/11 movement "stupid" and the petition Jones signed, "stupid." really she used that word twice in the same sentence. it would be great if someone like the professor would put that little twit in her place.

  4. Hi Kevin,

    I was just listening to the Truth Jihad show from a week ago. You were talking with the guy who is running against Ron Kind (Eric Sayward). At first he impressed me, “There is no statute of limitations on that oath.” But when he got to talking about Viet Nam he suddenly stopped thinking. That oath he took, which I also took, obliges all who take it to refuse illegal orders. Everyone who deployed to Viet Nam did so in violation of that oath. You cannot speak truth to power and at the same time not expect everyone, including those not in power, to behave ethically. If he expects government leaders to be ethical then he must also expect everyone who took that oath to be ethical (which International Law expects of them). He went from brilliant to pathetic in an instant. People sometimes say that PhDs can’t expect kids without a high school education to wade the waters of international law and actually refuse illegal orders, but I do and the rest of the world does to, including our Constitution! We have to speak honestly with ordinary soldiers too, and not confuse willingness to serve (in a war crime) with honor. Those who fought in Viet Nam were committing war crimes, without intending it perhaps, but the law does not care. If you are committing war crimes it does not matter that someone told you to do it, you are responsible for yourself. This is a massive contradiction in his thinking and I predict it will be fatal. Kind will take advantage of it. If he wants to confront evil in power then he has to tell ordinary soldiers to go AWOL, to refuse orders, to flee to Canada, whatever. But he cannot speak about honor in a uniform being justified by willingness to follow an illegal order.

  5. Thanks for your thoughts, Richard. I think many people who serve in the military by following the herd mentality gradually figure things out — look at Bob Bowman for example. Also, Vietnam was not as obvious a war of aggression as Afghanistan and Iraq, since there was an internationally recognized "South Vietnam" inviting the US in.

  6. Eric weighs in:

    here is my reply..
    point 1: my father was in Vietnam, and I respect him because he honestly thought he was doing the right thing.
    point 2: Alot of our current soldiers are just trying to stay alive, some don't know the truth, and some well, as with any group, some like the violence.. How do you tell them apart..?

    the truth is that the leaders are to take the majority of the responsability, the media is also guilty, corporate America and the wall street banksters are also to blame. Even the citizens who stand by quietly are involved..
    I stated in my interview that you are either part of the solution or part of the problem.. I also stated my knowledge of vietnam to show my ignorace growing up.. Everything happens for a reason and GOD will show us what we need to see, when it is our time to see it.. weather you call him God, Jesus, Alah.. doesn't matter.. we are ALL sons of abraham.. -Eric
