Wellstone and Mel Carnahan
Two Strange Deaths Which Changed History
people are not aware of how two strange deaths dramatically changed the
balance of power in US government for two recent years.
Democratic Senate candidate Mel Carnahan died in a private plane crash on
Oct. 16, 2000, just three weeks before the 2000 elections. Mr.
Carnahan went on to win the race as a dead man against his rival
John Ashcroft (who went on to become appointed the U.S. Attorney General!).
wife was appointed to fill his position, but as she was appointed rather than
elected, her Senate term was limited to two
years rather than the normal six. She lost her 2002 race to her
Republican opponent. http://www.cbsnews.com/stories/2002/11/13/politics/main529148.shtml
Oct. 24, 2002, just two weeks before the 2002 elections, Democratic Senate
candidate Paul Wellstone was killed in a plane crash. His wife died with
him. Wellstone had been projected to win the election.
Republican rival went on to take the Senate seat.
are many suspicious circumstances surrounding Wellstone's
death. (See media article below and watch this revealing 15-minute video of eye witness testimony).
balance in the Senate for years 2002 to 2004 was 51
Republicans, 48 Democrats, and one independent. If both Wellstone and
Carnahan had not been killed, and Wellstone had gone on as projected to win
his race, the balance would have been 50 Democrats, 49 Republicans, and one
independent. This would have significantly changed what happened in Congress
and in the US, where the presidency and both houses of Congress were Republican controlled over those two years.
it quite a coincidence that these two Democratic candidates both died in
plane crashes only two years apart, both just weeks before the
elections? It's even more of a coincidence that both were very progressive
Democrats. Wellstone was often labeled the most progressive member of
Senate. As a National Review article
stated, "Probably no other member of the Senate had been on the
losing side of more 99-1 or 98-2 votes. None had voted more consistently against
the Bush administration."
even more strange is the fact that no one in the media has
discussed these highly strange coincidences.
realize that what I am implying here is very serious. It is important to
understand that many of the players in the world of politics play the game
very seriously. Is it possible that someone might have arranged for one
or both of these deaths to give Republicans control over both
houses of Congress and the presidency? And just to be clear, I do not
consider myself a Democrat or a Republican. As an independent, I am deeply
dedicated to what's best for all people both in the US and in the world. I
feel it is unfortunate that the US has become so polarized politically and in
many other ways.
invite you to join me in remembering that all of us - liberal,
conservative, or otherwise - are simply trying to do what we believe is
right and best. Only when each of us chooses to try to better
understand our differences with others can we move towards greater peace
and harmony in the world. Yet it is also vitally important that we
expose the hidden agendas of those who would place their own selfish
interests above the interests of all people of our nation and world. I
invite you to read the article below, and if you feel this information is
worthwhile, please pass it on to your friends and colleagues. By exposing the
facts and the truth, we are building a better world for ourselves and
very best wishes,
Note: On October 16, 1972, just weeks before national elections, two other Democratic Congressmen were killed in a mysterious plane crash. Thomas Hale Boggs, Sr. was the Majority leader of the House of Representatives at the time. Congressman Nick Begich of Alaska was with him in the plane. Their bodies were never found. Congressman Boggs had been involved with the Warren Commission investigating the Kennedy assassination. To read about the crash, click here.
Point of View by Prof. JIM
opinion: Evidence indicates that Wellstone crash was no accident
Minnesota Sen. Paul Wellstone was a serious man who
cared profoundly about his fellow citizens. He took courageous stands against
an administration that he viewed with profound suspicion, arguing eloquently
against tax cuts for the rich, the subversion of the Constitution, and
violating international accords. He would have led the opposition to the war
in Iraq if only he had had the chance. Everyone knew it and he may have died
because of it.
nearly a year now, evidence has been accumulating about the event that ended
the life of this magnificent human being. Whatever caused the crash was not
the plane, the pilots or the weather. In spite of what you may have heard,
the plane was exceptional, the pilots well-qualified and the weather posed no
significant problems. Even the National Transportation Safety Board's own
simulations of the plane, the pilots and the weather were unable to bring the
means we have to consider other, less palatable alternatives, such as small
bombs, gas canisters or electromagnetic pulse, radio frequency or High Energy
Radio Frequency weapons designed to overwhelm electrical circuitry with an
intense electromagnetic field. An abrupt cessation of communication between
the plane and the tower took place at about 10:18 a.m., the same time an odd
cell phone phenomenon occurred with a driver in the immediate vicinity. This
suggests to me the most likely explanation is that one of our new
electromagnetic weapons was employed. [see www.WantToKnow.info/mindcontrol10pg#nonlethal
politics of the situation were astonishing. The senator was pulling away from
the hand-picked candidate of the Bush machine. Its opportunity to seize
control of the U.S. Senate was slipping from its grasp. Its vaunted
"invincibility" was being challenged by an outspoken critic of its
most basic values. Targeted for elimination, he was going to survive. Here's
one man's opinion: Under such conditions, the temptation to take him out may
have been irresistible.
the striking indications that something was wrong with the NTSB in its
inquiry into the causes of the crash is that Carol Carmody, a former employee
with the CIA, the head of the team, announced the day after that the FBI had
found no indications of terrorist involvement. Yet it is the responsibility
of the NTSB to ascertain the cause of the crash, which has yet to be
determined to this very day.
how could the FBI possibly know?
FBI's prompt arrival was peculiar. As Christopher Bollyn of American Free
Press reported (www.rumormillnews.net,
Oct. 29, 2002), "According to Rick Wahlberg, then St. Louis County
sheriff, a team of FBI agents was quickly on the crash site about noon, less
than an hour after (assistant manager Gary) Ulman and the (fire) chief had
first located the site and found a way to access the wreck. This FBI team had
come from the distant Twin Cities in record time!"
Bollyn "asked Ulman if he had notified the FBI about the accident, Ulman
said he had not spoken with the bureau at any time. Asked how the FBI got to
the site so quickly, Ulman said that he assumed they had come from Duluth.
AFP contacted the Duluth office of the FBI and was told that the team of
'recovery' agents had not come from Duluth but had traveled from the FBI
office in Minneapolis."
calculate that this team would have had to have left the Twin Cities at about
the same time the Wellstone plane was taking off.
Ulman confirmed to me that the FBI had been on the scene no later than 1 p.m.
have reviewed the log books maintained by the Sheriff's Department at Eveleth
and have discovered that they are grossly incomplete and cannot confirm when
the FBI showed up.
FAA has told me that its records of private aircraft arriving in Duluth that
morning have been destroyed, even though they might verify the FBI's early
the NTSB has canceled sessions where it would ordinarily take input from the
Nov. 1, 2002) has reported, "The day after the crash I received a
message from a former CIA operative who has proven extremely reliable in the
past and who is personally familiar with these kinds of assassinations. The
message read, 'As I said earlier, having played ball (and still playing in
some respects) with this current crop of reinvigorated old white men, these
clowns are nobody to screw around with. There will be a few more strategic
accidents. You can be certain of that.' "
you think that's a stretch, consider: Hundreds of young Americans have been
put in harm's way by a war that was promoted on the basis of lies about
weapons of mass destruction, collaboration with Osama bin Laden, and Sept.
3,000 Americans were killed when the Twin Towers collapsed, and yet the
president and the vice president of the United States have done everything
they can to obstruct a open and honest investigation of the causes of that
traumatic event. And when a leak from his own administration leads to the
exposure of a CIA operative concerned with weapons of mass destruction, the
President tells us "we may never know."
is a corrupt administration.
of the oddest events since the election is that Wellstone's successor in the
U.S. Senate, Norm Coleman, has been placed in charge of the Senate
is an extraordinarily sensitive responsibility to be placed upon a freshman
senator with no previous experience. My guess would be that it has never
happened before. But the reasoning behind it may not be that difficult to
fathom: Would anyone be less inclined to pursue the Wellstone death?
man's opinion: The evidence presented here and elaborated elsewhere in detail
establishes a prima facie case that this death was no accident, that the
motives were political and begs the question: Was the White House involved?
investigation by the St. Louis County prosecutor would be most welcome.
the chorus of memories for a man who made a difference, let us bear in mind
that truth is our only defense against an onslaught of lies that have
dominated a media that appears too weak or too complicit to resist.
