Run, Whistleblowers, Run



Earlier this year, I wrote that whistleblowers would be among the only appropriate candidates for public office. Now, we're actually beginning to see this phenomena come to fruition. A handful of whistleblowers are seeking office this fall, and it's a gratifying sight.

Clint Curtis was a computer programmer hired to rig an election for Florida Republican Tom Feeney. He testified on voter fraud before a Congressional Committee, and is now running as a Democrat for Feeney's congressional seat. Curtis has won the primary in a landslide, and will no doubt make this election a very interesting one. Tom Feeney is resorting to name-calling, which signals trouble ahead for his little kingdom. More and more, the desperate cries of tin-foil hat and black helicopters are falling on deaf ears, and voters are waking up to smell the corruption.

Meanwhile, another Florida whistleblower, Robert Bowman, has likewise won a primary. Bowman is calling for independent investigation of 9/11, and is not buying the official line. As for his credentials, Bowman was the director of the original Star Wars program, and that speaks for itself. I'd love to see Michelle Malkin or any other Republican handmaiden debate Bowman on the issue of 9/11 complicity. On her end, it would be the sound of one hand clapping.

Another 9/11 whistleblower is running for Congress in Minnesota. Colleen Rowley, a former FBI employee, made considerable noise about the FBI's shady part in 9/11. One can only hope that the voters in her district will not waste this terrific opportunity, and will come through for Ms. Rowley.

Mary Maxwell, a Republican no less, is running for a seat in New Hampshire, and looking for the legal means to bring the real 9/11 perpetrators to justice.

Howie Hawkins, a Green Party candidate for the N.Y. Senate, is calling for a people's investigation of 9/11.

Craig Hill is likewise running for the Senate, in Vermont.

Yet another is Joshua Smith, running for Congress in Washington. This is part of his platform:

This may be hard to believe if you haven't given it much thought, but it must be said anyway. Current scientific evidence does not support the government's official explanation of what happened.

If some of these candidates win their respective seats, it should be encouraging to other whistleblowers to do likewise, and, most importantly, to keep blowing the whistle. After all, there can only be so many plane crashes and "suicides" for whistleblowers before the public wakes up to reality, and decides to do something about it. Given the latest polling numbers on 9/11, that time may not be so far off.

Oh, Chewy, that is SO not true. Sure, Ann Coulter has webbed feet, but she has never lived in your basement. You're just lucky that I erased her comment.

Win, whistleblowers, win! Funny how whistleblowers and Iraq/Afghanistan vets become Democrats (if they weren't already) once they find out the truth, isn't it? Only liars, pod people and blind sheep could possibly be Republicans in this day and age.
The neocons are lying thugs and don't resemble REAL Republicans at all! They just stole the name. It takes guts to whistleblow with ruthless killers in the White House. Truth to power!!
