Joy Cardin of Wisconsin Public Radio's "Idea Network" welcomes back Libertarian congressional candidate Kevin Barrett who is running as the "truth and peace" candidate in Wisconsin's 3rd District and who explains that it was his discovery of who was really behind the attacks of September 11, 2001 that led him to run for Congress in an attempt to restore his country's democracy.
Democratic Congressman Ron Kind (right) stated that the calls to his office regarding the billionaire banker bailout were running 50/50, 50% said no and 50% said, "hell no"! and yet he still voted for it.

MADISON, Wis. - Former Minnesota Gov. Jesse Ventura has endorsed a Sept. 11 conspiracy theorist for a congressional seat.
Ventura came out Thursday in support of Kevin Barrett, a Libertarian running against incumbent Democrat Ron Kind for western Wisconsin's seat.
Barrett is a former University of Wisconsin-Madison lecturer who believes the U.S. government was behind the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks and has discussed his views in class.
Ventura is a former professional wrestler. He served one term after being elected Minnesota's governor in 1998 as a third-party candidate.

What better way to get the peace-and-truth message out than to go directly to the voters, bypassing the controlled corporate media? I'm launching a "phone bomb" and the reverberations are going to shake the world!
I can get a one-minute message to tens of thousands of voters via automated calling. For $1,200 I can place two phone calls to all 8,000 households in my district with two or more registered voters who have voted in a recent election. For $12,000 I can two-call 80,000 voting households. And for $24,000 I can call all 160,000 households in my district twice!
The first phone call (listen) uses humor to get their attention. Imagine 160,000 households getting a funny, entertaining, hard-hitting call that finishes with "we KNOW 9/11 was an inside job!"
The second one (listen) delivers the coup de grace to pro-war Democrat Ron Kind. (Remember, if I win the primary, I will be debating Ron Kind -- he has already agreed to it!.
The Labor Day Money Bomb begins Thursday 8/28 and ends at midnight on Labor Day. All contributions during that period will go the the "phone bomb" project. Please give generously at: www.BarrettForCongress.us. Remember, the maximum you can give to a single candidate is $2,300 -- that's almost enough to reach one out of every ten households in my district! If only twelve people max out, my message will reach every single voter -- TWICE. Same result if only 100 people contribute $250 each...or 1,000 people give $25.
So even if you've already contributed to the Barrett campaign, please try to give it up one more time for the Labor Day Money Bomb!
Together, we can make history.
Phone call #1 (to be placed Tuesday, September 2nd)

Madison -- As part of his unusual campaign for Congress, Libertarian Kevin Barrett is planning to robo-call 30,000 people to talk about how annoying robo-calls are.
While he's at it, he's asking for their vote in the Sept. 9 primary. And he's reminding them he believes the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks were orchestrated by the U.S. government.
"I've had it up to here with the boring, cowardly, mealy mouthed, lying scalawags that call themselves politicians," Barrett says in the calls that will go out Tuesday. "If they call me one more time, I'm going...to tell them: 'You dirty, lying, thieving jackals of Washington, D.C., wasted $5 trillion on that idiotic war in Iraq and you destroyed our economy.'"
He asks people to visit FireCongress.org, a site that urges people to vote against incumbents.
Barrett also claims 9/11 was an inside job. Barrett was enmeshed in controversy when he taught at the University of Wisconsin-Madison for his views on those terrorist attacks.
Barrett slips into a falsetto voice during the recording so he can sound like a second person urging them to vote for Barrett. The call ends with: "At least he's not boring."
Barrett faces fellow Libertarian Ben Olson III in the primary. The winner will face Kind and Republican Paul Stark, an Eau Claire home builder, in the Nov. 4 general election for the western Wisconsin district.

Michael Anthony, a self-employed handyman who lives in the Madison area, can't vote for Kevin Barrett, who is challenging U.S. Rep. Ron Kind in western Wisconsin's 3rd District, but did donate $10 to his campaign Monday night during a campaign event at the Dardenelles restaurant on Monroe Street.
"He's got guts. He's not afraid of controversy. A lot of people will run from controversy, especially if it means doing so on national television," Anthony said. "He has faced those Fox people with bat in hand."
Kevin Barrett on Hannity and Colmes
July 11, 2006
Anthony was referring to Barrett's 2006 appearance on Fox News' "Hannity & Colmes" program, in which Sean Hannity called Barrett a "conspiracy nut" and an "extremist" and Barrett shot back, "Fox News is the biggest bunch of extremists on the planet."
Barrett, the controversial former UW lecturer who believes the U.S. government was responsible for the Sept. 11 attacks, is running as a Libertarian and promises to call for an investigation into the terrorist attacks.
Anthony, the handyman, doesn't necessarily believe the government perpetrated or was complicit in 9/11, but said the government knows "a whole lot more than they have said. They certainly had a hand in it."
Andy Albrecht, a UW-Madison student of political science, made a $20 donation to the campaign Monday night. Albrecht's parents live in the 3rd District, and that is where he is registered to vote, although has never voted before.
Albrecht said he appreciates Barrett's tenacity and his anti-war stance.
"I like that he supports the truth. He really pushes the truth. He's not afraid to stand up for what he believes in," said Albrecht, who added that he doesn't necessarily believe 9/11 was "an inside job," but does think the government is withholding information.
Taking a page from Russ Feingold's 1992 "endorsement" from Elvis Presley, Barrett got Tim Biancalana, a dead ringer for John Lennon, to perform at the Dardanelles. About 30 people attended the event and watched the 2006 documentary, "The U.S. vs. John Lennon."
Biancalana, who is based in the Los Angeles area, performed Lennon's "Working Class Hero" and his original song, "Samsara."
"Behind every war there is a great big lie," Biancalana said. He is supporting Barrett, he said, because of "his truth."
"He's actually doing something for truth. When we have truth, we can get the peace we want," he said. "Everything today is about divide and conquer," but Barrett stands for the unity of people, said Biancalana, who has appeared on one of Barrett's radio programs.
Barrett, of Lone Rock, has three talk radio shows and spends eight hours a week on the air. The programs are broadcast, respectively, on Republic Broadcasting Network (RBN), Genesis Communications Network (GCN) and We the People Radio Network (WTPRN). None of them are broadcast locally, but all can be found on the Internet. He also does a daily five-minute news headline show strictly online at www.noliesradio.org.
Barrett's motto is, "Truth in politics. What a concept!"
"If we don't know what is going on we can't get peace and prosperity," Barrett told his supporters Monday night.
Kind has repeatedly voted for the war and against his own party's attempts to limit the duration of the war, Barrett said.
"He's also voted against the Constitution," Barrett said, noting that Kind has voted for Patriot Act I, Patriot Act II and HR 1955, the Violent Radicalization and Homegrown Terrorism Prevention Act of 2007.
Kind, D-La Crosse, has represented the 3rd District in Congress since 1996.
That's "too long," said Barrett. "His blow-dry has petrified on his head. He is way too comfortable. I promise when elected not to blow dry my hair."
Barrett needs 1,500 signatures to get on the ballot and has collected about 940, with a few volunteers helping him.
He considers himself a "new Libertarian candidate," calling himself much more moderate on economic issues than most libertarians.
"With the current imploding economy, the government will have to help people survive," he said. "We can't just shut down the social programs. We might even have to expand some of them."
Barrett's opponent in September's Libertarian primary is Ben Olson III of Wisconsin Dells, a longtime Libertarian party activist. If Olson weren't a Libertarian, he'd be a Republican, whereas Barrett would be a Democrat, Barrett said.
"Both parties are terminally corrupt at this point," he said.
Barbara Wright, who owns the Dardanelles, said she and Barrett have some things in common. Both are married to Moroccans and have a foot in the Muslim world. Barrett converted to Islam, while she has not, Wright said.
When Barrett told her he was going to run for Congress, she offered to host a fund-raising event at her restaurant.
"There needs to be some truth spoken about what is going on with our government, about the repression in society and the move toward fascism, the gutting of the middle class and the truth behind 9/11," Wright said. "I think that one of the ways you fight the fear that people feel is to get together as a community and talk about things."
"In 1977 the family of Martin Luther King engaged an attorney and friend, Dr. William Pepper, to investigate a suspicion they had. They no longer believed that James Earl Ray was the killer. For their peace of mind, for an accurate record of history, and out of a sense of justice they conducted a two decade long investigation. The evidence they uncovered was put before a jury in Memphis, TN, in November 1999. 70 witnesses testified under oath, 4,000 pages of transcripts described that evidence, much of it new. It took the jury 59 minutes to come back with their decision that exonerated James Earl Ray, who had already died in prison. The jury found that Lloyd Jowers, owner of Jimís Grill, had participated in a conspiracy to kill King. The evidence showed that the conspiracy included J. Edgar Hoover and the FBI, Richard Helms and the CIA, the military, the Memphis police department, and organized crime.
