Call C-Span

To call C-Span and ask them to carry Rep. Conyers hearings, dial 202-737-3220. And please be nice!
I just tried to call the number for C-SPAN. I let it ring for over three minutes. They didn't answer. I think maybe they're getting overloaded.

I finally got through, said to the young man who answered: "I'm one of probably several people . . ." he said "Conyers hearing, right?"

I said, "Yes, I. . ."

He said "We've yet to make a decision. We'll make a decision this afternoon."

I said, "Please . . ."

and never finished the sentence. He hung up on me!
You can see some interesting commentary on the Conyers hearing coverage in a Washington Post article here:

The bottom line is that the Post writer is using the typical right wing tactic of ridiculing those involved in very serious work to deflect attention from facts and substance.

We all need to make sure that inquiries on the DSM continue and are successful. Don't let the attempts to elicit a knee jerk response about Israel cloud the real issues. If anyone questions the references to Israel during the hearing then listen to the testimony by the CIA analyst.

The fact is we do not yet know what the role of Israel was in the fabrication of fake intelligence and this needs to be part of the inquiry. Just because the Democrats have a large Jewish constituency does not mean that they should use this an excuse to obstruct getting to the facts in this crucially important matter.

Time to fight comrades.
As many of you know one of the next logical steps in pursuing the information revealed in the Downing Street Memos is to have Senator Pat Roberts convene the Senate committee on the misuse of Intelligence that was promised as the follow on to the 911 commision.

E-mails can be sent to Senator Roberts at:

Here is the e-mail that I sent to him yesterday:

"Senator Roberts,

We are still waiting for the inquiry on the misuse/distortion of intelligence leading to the war in Iraq that the American people have been promised.

Many of those who were able to read and think clearly knew that we were all being played for fools by this administration as it created a false reality of imminent threat from weapons and terrorism sponsored by the Iraqi regime.

Now the truth is starting to come out, as I knew it eventually would. Many sources such as the Downing Street Memos are providing documentary proof of the deliberate deception of the American people by this administration.

It is your duty to make sure that the source of the false Intelligence is properly understood by the American people.

Was all this an honest mistake? Was the CIA coerced into producing intelligence that supported the administration's desire for war? Did other countries with an axe to grind with Iraq feed the US false intelligence?

We need the answers to these questions and it is your constitutional duty as Chairman of the Senate Committee on Intelligence to provide them.

Please let me know when you intend to hold hearings. We need to get to the bottom of this."

Please contact Senator Roberts and demand that he convene the promised inquiry.

Time to fight comrades.
I know this is not the right place to do this but I can not seem to find a place to contact you Stephanie. I love your show (I listen on 92.1 the Mic) and would love to have printed info on a topic you are discussing today. The quotes of Nazi's used by Republicans. Are you going to post this on your website? I would love to have this to throw at my Father-In-Law. Thanks inadvance. Keep up the good work!!!!
