Citizens’ Grand Jury for 9/11, War Crimes Tribunal for US torture: ‘We the People’ either express citizenship for .01% arrests, or devolve to work animals for rogue state Wars of Aggression, bankster-looting, constant lying

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

The US is an illegal and lying rogue state empire that evokes just one response from citizens empowered with the objective facts:

Arrest and end this empire.

Academics can sooooo easily explain, document, and prove these lies and crimes, and do so in alternative media by the hundreds. However, the art and science of communication to produce the result of citizen action demands more. PuppetGov’s 2009 8-minute Why Resistance is Essential is a powerful expression to inspire virtuous citizenship:

Another expression is the Malaysian War Crimes Tribunal that found Bush, Cheney, and their top “legal” advisors guilty of torture and that related War Crime. Participating law professor Francis Boyle explains:

The charges were twofold: first, torture, and then, second, since torture in wartime constitutes War Crimes, the second charge were War Crimes. There was four days of hearings by the prosecution and the defense. And then, on the end of the fifth day, the tribunal issued a unanimous judgment to the effect that Bush, Cheney, Rumsfeld, and five of their top lawyers advising them on this, including Yoo, Bybee, Haynes, and Gonzalez, Addington, were personally responsible for and guilty of torture and War Crimes as defined by the Convention against Torture, to which the United States government is a party, and the four Geneva conventions of 1949, to which the United States government is a party as well.

Similar, the 2007 San Diego Citizens’ Grand Jury indicted 16 key figures for the crimes of 9/11. An 8-minute excerpt:

From Don Paul, who orchestrated the Citizens’ Grand Jury and served as Chief Prosecutor:

The 2016 Presidential ‘election’ has made our choiceless “democracy” in the United States even more evident. And so it may be refreshing to review and celebration acts of courage and integrity by a few score “ordinary citizens” in San Diego, California nine years ago.

On April 14, 2007 the 23 volunteer members of the ‘San Diego Citizens’ Grand Jury chose to charge 16 individuals with ‘Conspiracy to Commit Mass Murder’ regarding ‘the Crimes of September 11, 2001 in New York City’. They agreed with Chief Prosecutor Don Paul that Rudolph Giuliani and Jerome Hauer should be so charged. They went on to add Indictments by Presentment (that is, ‘an accusation issued by the grand jury on its own knowledge, without any bill of indictment having been previously drawn up by the prosecutor,’ according to the Columbia University Press Encyclopedia) against 14 more suspects, including David Rockefeller, Peter G. Peterson, L. Paul Bremer, Maurice Greenberg, and Michael Charkaskey as well as more obvious officials such as George W. Bush, Richard Cheney, Donald Rumsfeld, and Generals Richard Myers and Ralph G. Eberhart.

The Indictments offered by the San Diego Citizens’ Grand Jury came at the end of eight hours of proceedings. Don Paul was joined by scientist and ‘911 research’ website-pioneer Jim Hoffman as Chief Investigator and by Richard Gage of Architects and Engineers for 9/11 Truth, Ted Muga of Pilots for 9/11 Truth, physicist Steven Jones, and chemist Kevin Ryan as Expert Witnesses. The event at San Diego State University was organized largely by another body of dedicated volunteers, San Diegans for 9/11 Truth.

The Grand Jury’s ‘Historic Result’ was posted on the website of Scholars for 9/11 Truth and Justice with ‘End Notes’ linking to 54 urls for further study and with Biographies of the 16 suspects. A ‘Wanted Poster’ remains available on the site.

The Grand Jury’s proceedings and conclusions were widely celebrated online. Here is one thread at 911 Blogger.

Kevin Ryan later wrote about the SDCGJ in his Foreword to Don Paul’s 2009 book The World Is Turning. That the volunteer Jurors had ‘stepped up with such an enlarged map of crimes and such a roster of possible crimes was exhilarating,’ he wrote. He found that the ‘courage shown in San Diego’ was a step toward our going forward in mutual liberation. He wrote in his 2009 Foreword: ‘Choices are especially demanded of us in the United States. As crucial parts of the interdependent, increasingly conscious system that is our life on earth, we may proceed as Don Paul urges–‘from courage with compassion.’

We’re glad to share these bold and thoughtful Jurors with you now (17 minutes), preceded by an introduction from Don in his current home nearby New Orleans. You’ll see and hear their shared hope that their actions will produce “a wave” of remedial justice.

My more complete documentation:

The Crimes

  • The US is a literal rogue state empire led by neocolonial looting liars. The history is uncontested and taught to anyone taking comprehensive courses. If anyone has any refutations of this professional academic factual claim for any of this easy-to-read and documented content, please provide it.
  • US ongoing lie-started and Orwellian-illegal Wars of Aggression require all US military and government to refuse all war orders because there are no lawful orders for obviously unlawful wars. Officers are required to arrest those who issue obviously unlawful orders. And again, those of us working for this area of justice are aware of zero attempts to refute this with, “War law states (a, b, c), so the wars are legal because (d, e, f).” All we receive is easy-to-reveal bullshit.
  • When Americans are told an election is defined by touching a computer screen without a countable receipt that can be verified, they are being told a criminal lie to allow election fraud. This is self-evident, but PrincetonStanford, and the President of the American Statistical Association are among the leaders pointing to the obvious (and herehereherehereherehereherehereherehereherehereherehereherehereherehere). Again, no professional would/can argue an election is legitimate when there is nothing for anyone to count.
  • And, obviously, corporate media are criminally complicit through constant lies of omission and commission to “cover” all these crimes. Historic tragic-comic empire is only possible through such straight-face lying, making our Emperor’s New Clothes analogy perfectly chosen.
  • The top three benefits each of monetary reform and public banking total ~$1,000,000 for the average American household, and would be received nearly instantly. Please read that twice. Now look to verify for yourself.

Demanding arrests as the required and obvious public response rather than ‘voting’ for more disaster:

The categories of crime include:

  1. Wars of Aggression (the worst crime a nation can commit).
  2. Likely treason for lying to US military, ordering unlawful attack and invasions of foreign lands, and causing thousands of US military deaths.
  3. Crimes Against Humanity for ongoing intentional policy of poverty that’s killed over 400 million human beings just since 1995 (~75% children; more deaths than from all wars in Earth’s recorded history).
  4. Tens of trillions in looting, including $6.5 trillion just reported by the US Department of “Defense” as “lost.”

US military, law enforcement, and all with Oaths to support and defend the US Constitution against all enemies, foreign and domestic, face an endgame choice:

In just 90 seconds, former US Marine Ken O’Keefe powerfully states how you may choose to voice “very obvious solutions”: arrest the criminal leaders (video starts at 20:51, then finishes this episode of Cross Talk):

Solutions worth literal tens of trillions to ‘We the People’:


  • The top three benefits each of monetary reform and public banking total ~$1,000,000 for the average American household, and would be received nearly instantly. Please read that twice. Now look to verify for yourself.
  • We can quantify the end of the lie-started and illegal Wars of Aggression quickly into the trillions, and that said, it’s worth a lot more than what we quantify.
  • Truth: a world in which education is expressed in its full potential to only and always begin with good-faith effort for objective, comprehensive, and verifiable data.


Note: I make all factual assertions as a National Board Certified Teacher of US Government, Economics, and History, with all economics factual claims receiving zero refutation since I began writing in 2008 among Advanced Placement Macroeconomics teachers on our discussion board, public audiences of these articles, and international conferences (and here). I invite readers to empower their civic voices with the strongest comprehensive facts most important to building a brighter future. I challenge professionals, academics, and citizens to add their voices for the benefit of all Earth’s inhabitants.
