Attempted Assassination on 12/30/2008
CNN (whose Karl Penhaul was actually aboard the Dignity) and the mainstream media (AP) have utterly failed to accurately tell Americans what is happening in Gaza and how Israel ATTEMPTED TO ASSASSINATE one of my favorite and most respected American politicians, the 2008 Green Party Presidential Candidate Cynthia McKinney (yes, her name was at the top of your ballot right next to Obama & McCain).
On December 30, 2008, Cynthia attempted to enter the Gaza Strip aboard the "pleasure boat" Dignity, which was sent on a humanitarian mission by the Free Gaza Movement to deliver 3 TONS of medical supplies to the people that Israel has been slaughtering in Gaza (illegally occupied by Israel for the past 40 years) because Israel cut off their gas and power supplies AND the tunnels that were bringing food/supplies into Gaza strip. 16 passengers included: Cynthia McKinney; physicians from Britain, Germany and Cyprus; and human rights activists from the Free Gaza Solidarity Movement including Caoimhe Butterly.
The Israel Navy (most likely with mossad involvement) silently shadowed the Dignity for 30 minutes with their spotlights all over the leisure boat while maintaining radio silence. Cynthia and the Dignity crew said the ship was RAMMED THREE TIMES (twice in front and once on the side), gunfire was directed at the water. The Dignity was about to deploy life rafts when the captain announced that the pumps were keeping water out of the hull. The Dignity was forced to dock in Lebanon after taking on water. If the boat hadn't been partially made of wood, it would have sunk within minutes of being rammed - and Cynthia would probably have not survived. "It could have ended with people drowning if they hit us more square on," Dignity's captain, Denis Healey said. "It could have gone down in minutes." It's a good thing that the mossad failed miserably at both their "intelligence" and "field work".
The original reports said that Israel attacked Cynthia because she was engaging in terrorist actions (in international waters). Israeli officials later LIED about the ramming being accidental AND about the ship trying to outmaneuver the 3+ ISRAELI NAVY (mossad) patrol boats, and openly denunciated and condemned McKinney's actions by ironically claiming it was regrettable that they were "forced to deal with Ms. McKinney's irresponsible behavior". Cynthia called the Israeli account of events: "OUTRIGHT DISINFORMATION" (the mossad has an entire department dedicated to "disinformation" as well as a department dedicated to "assassinations" — see their website).
Cynthia urged president-elect Obama to "say something, please, about the humanitarian crisis that is occurring right now by the people of Gaza". Cynthia also urged her former colleagues in United States Congress to "STOP SENDING WEAPONS OF MASS DESTRUCTION AROUND THE WORLD! ... BECAUSE THE WEAPONS BEING USED BY ISRAEL WERE SUPPLIED BY THE UNITED STATES GOVERNMENT." Millions of people around the world are protesting the US/ISRAELI attacks on Gaza; THE USA IS BEING BLAMED FOR THESE WAR CRIMES IN INTERNATIONAL NEWS!
Cynthia also notes: "I recall that there was another boat that was attacked by Israelis and it was the USS LIBERTY. People would like to forget about the USS LIBERTY but I haven't forgotten about it and the people who were on that ship have not forgotten what happened to them. What happened to us last night was a direct threat to our mission - but not our cause."
Hear this news story from Cynthia's point of view:
(pay close attention to every word that this patriot EVER says)
"My personal, and I know the group's, thanks must go to Al Jazeera, that allowed three of their reporters to be onboard with us on our voyage. As a result, Al Jazeera carried the story of the Dignity live, from castoff in Cyprus when our spirits were high, right up through the manacing maneuvers of the huge, super fast Israeli ships before they rammed us, Al Jazeera carried our story as "breaking news" and performed a real service to its audience and to us. Al Jazeera called the Israelis to inquire about the incident right as it was happening and I am sure the Israelis were prepared to leave none to tell the story. Al Jazeera told the story and documented it as it was happening."
"I'm told that CNN only played my full statement once - and that's the time that it aired live. Of course, they cut the reference to the U.S.S. Liberty. What are they afraid of?" Cynthia, THEY are rightfully afraid of what would happen to THEM if humanity knew the TRUTH about Israel, mossad, disinformation, and THEIR "Clean Break" plan for the current wars in the Middle East - we would stop aiding THEM and classify THEM as they are: a terrorist nation with illegal WMD in the Middle EAST.

FEMA's "Clean-Up" After Hurricane Katrina
At a press conference on Sept. 28, 2008, Cynthia McKinney was videotaped saying she had spoken with a constituent whose son was a National Guardsman. The constituent claimed her son had disposed of 5,000 corpses (mostly black males, each with a single bullet-hole in the back of his head) for the Department of Defense during the week of Huricane Katrina. The names of these men were "entered into a Pentagon computer". Cynthia thinks the bodies were prisoners who had all been shot in the head and dumped in a Louisiana swamp. McKinney said this information had been validated by various "inside" sources - including her contacts at The Red Cross.
2006 Articles of Impeachment
At the end of the 2006 legislative session, McKinney introduced articles of impeachment against President Bush, Vice President Dick Cheney, and Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice as (H Res 1106), which made three charges:
1. WAR CRIMES! TREASON! Failure to uphold the constitution, specifically that "George Walker Bush … in preparing the invasion of Iraq, did withhold intelligence from the Congress, by refusing to provide Congress with the full intelligence picture that he was being given, by redacting information … and actively manipulating the intelligence on Iraq’s alleged weapons programs by pressuring the Central Intelligence Agency and other intelligence agencies."
2. 9/11 COMMISSION. SIGNING STATEMENTS. Abuse of office and executive privilege, "obstructing and hindering the work of Congressional investigative bodies and by seeking to expand the scope of the powers of his office."
3. ILLEGALLY & UNCONSTITUTIONALLY SPYING ON AMERICANS (PRECISELY why Nixon was impeached: "the whole bay of pigs thing"). Failure to ensure that laws are faithfully executed, specifically by a program of illegal domestic spying and circumvention of the FISA Act.
The second article also made charges against Vice President Dick Cheney alleging he manipulated intelligence in order to justify the Iraq War, and against Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice alleging that she knowingly made false statements concerning Iraq's weapons of mass destruction program. Like most other Presidential impeachment bills, it failed to clear the House Committee on the Judiciary.
2008 Green Party Presidential Candidate
Cynthia Ann McKinney was the Green Party's nomination in the 2008 election for president of the United States. The REAL "Green" (& black) vote should have been for Cynthia McKinney (Green Party). Cynthia was elected to represent the Green Party by 60% of the vote over Nader's 15%. Cynthia was on the ballots in states that cast 70.5% of the national popular vote in 2004. The GP went from 12 state ballots in 1996, to 43 state ballots in 2000 (2,000,000 votes, $5 million budget), to 27 state ballots in 2004 (100,000 votes, $150k budget), to 2008 (32 state ballots, $132k thru 6/30/08). On November 4, 2008 McKinney received 159,656 votes.
On September 10, 2008, McKinney joined a press conference held by five 2008 PRESIDENTIAL candidates, including Independent Ralph Nader, Libertarian Bob Barr, Constitutional Candidate Pastor Chuck Baldwin, and initiator Dr. Ron Paul. They ALL agree on 4 basic principles:
An early end to the Iraq war, and an end to threats of war against other countries including Iran and Russia. The safeguarding of privacy and civil liberties, including a call for the repeal of the Patriot Act, the Military Commissions Act, and FISA legislation. No increase in the National Debt. A "thorough investigation, evaluation and audit of the Federal Reserve System."
9/11 Truth Movement
McKinney stated that the United States had advance knowledge of the attacks and that President George W. Bush may have been aware of the incipient attack but failed to warn New Yorkers, due to his father's business interests: "It is known that President Bush's father, through the Carlyle Group, had (at the time of the attacks) joint business interests with the bin Laden construction company and many defense industry holdings, the stocks of which have soared since September 11."
McKinney traveled and gave speeches, and served as a Commissioner in The Citizens' Commission on 9-11. On October 26, 2004, Cynthia was among 100 prominent Americans and 40 family members (of people murdered on 9/11/2001) who signed the 9/11 Truth Movement statement, calling for new investigations of 9/11.
2005 End to Iraq War
On November 18, 2005, Cynthia McKinney was one of only three House members to vote for H.R. 571 calling for an immediate withdrawal of U.S. forces in Iraq. In her prepared statement, McKinney accused the Republicans of "trying to set a trap for the Democrats. A 'no' vote for this Resolution will obscure the fact that there is strong support for withdrawal of US forces from Iraq ... In voting for this bill, let me be perfectly clear that I am not saying the United States should exit Iraq without a plan. I agree with Mr. Murtha that security and stability in Iraq should be pursued through diplomacy. I simply want to vote 'yes' to an orderly withdrawal from Iraq."
Contested 2004 Ohio Voting Machines
Cynthia wanted Congress to investigate the voter machine fraud that occurred during the 2004 presidential election. Voting machines in "black" districts of Ohio confused and discounted many Democratic votes for John Kerry (the Bohemian Grove / Skull&Bones / NWO / CFR / corporate candidate) who was running against republican George Bush (the Bohemian Grove / Skull&Bones / NWO / CFR / corporate oil candidate) for President of the United States. The voter fraud in 2004 was NEVER INVESTIGATED because NOT ONE SINGLE CONGRESSMAN (INCLUDING OBAMA) WOULD SIGN CYNTHIA'S BILL to allow for it to be "heard" or even discussed !!!
Martin Luther King Assassination
Cynthia has submitted two different versions of the "MLK Records Act" bill to Congress (2003 & 2005), The bill would release all currently sealed files concerning the 1968 assassination of Martin Luther King, Jr. A Senate version of the bill (S2499) was introduced by John Kerry and co-signed by Hillary Clinton.
Congress (HR D-GA)
Cynthia was a Democratic member of the U. S. House of Representatives from Georgia's 4th district (1993-2003 and 2005-2007). Cynthia was run out of the house by corporations running a male black candidate against her in 2004 and funding mass media campaigns - while smearing, censoring, and literally "blacking-out" Cynthia from major media sources. She was elected to the Georgia State Legislature in 1988.
Until 2000, Cynthia served on the House International Relations Committee, where she was the highest-ranking Democrat on the Human Rights Subcommittee. McKinney worked on legislation to stop conventional weapons transfers to governments that are undemocratic or fail to respect human rights.
Teaching Career & Education
McKinney's dad was a cop, and activist, and a representative in the Georgia House of Representatives; her mother was a nurse. Cynthia used to teach Political Science. She worked as a high school teacher and later as a university professor.
Cynthia is currently attending U.C. Berkeley for a Ph.D. She already has a B.A. in International Relations from the University of Southern California, and a Masters of Art in Law and Diplomacyfrom the Fletcher School of Law and Diplomacy.
