Fix is in: Bush cousin presides over Cheney, Rumsfeld, Myers lawsuit

By Craig McKee

No, it’s not a joke.
A 9/11 lawsuit against former high officials in the Bush White House is being presided over by a cousin of former president George W. Bush – a shocking and blatant conflict of interest that should embarrass even believers in the official story.

Walker will decide if case goes forward.

George W. Bush’s cousin, Judge John M. Walker of the 2nd Circuit of the United States Court of Appeals, is part of a three-judge panel hearing the case of April Gallop vs. former vice-president Dick Cheney, former defense secretary Donald Rumsfeld and former chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Richard Myers.
The case has been ignored by the mainstream media in the weeks leading up to it going to court April 5. And most media have ignored the developments concerning the involvement of Judge Walker. One exception is CNBC, which carried an online story with the headline: “Extraordinary Conflict of Interest: Bush Cousin Presides Over Federal Court Case Against Former Bush Administration Officials.” Good for them, but this is an all-too isolated exception. That the story is being kept almost entirely out of the media further reveals that the idea of a free and vigorous press is largely a fantasy.
Gallop, a former U.S. Army executive administrative assistant (with top secret clearance), is suing for damages in connection with injuries she and her newborn son suffered in the supposed terrorist attack at the Pentagon on Sept. 11, 2001. The two were injured when the allegedly hijacked American Airlines Flight 77 supposedly slammed into the building. Gallop and many others in the 9/11 Truth movement contend that explosives were planted inside the Pentagon and that Flight 77 never hit the building.
Gallop says a large explosion caused the ceiling above her to collapse. When she regained consciousness, she made her way, son in tow, through the hole the alleged plane was supposed to have created. She says she never saw any evidence that a plane had hit the building. The government claims that 125 people were killed in the Pentagon and another 89 on the plane.
As I reported in a previous post, the Pentagon has refused to help Gallop with surgeries she and her son have required because of the event. They’ve even tried to stop other agencies like the American Red Cross from helping her, according to David Ray Griffin’s account in his book The New Pearl Harbor Revisited.
Gallop launched the original lawsuit in 2008 alleging that the 9/11 attacks were planned at the highest levels of the U.S. government, and that they were blamed on fundamentalist Muslims as part of a cover story. She claims that there was plenty of knowledge that employees of the Pentagon were in imminent danger, and that had alarms been sounded many deaths and injuries would have been prevented.
The idea that Cheney knew a plane was heading for the Pentagon is supported by the 9/11 Commission hearing testimony of the then transportation secretary, Norman Mineta. Mineta reported to the Commission that Cheney was in the presidential bunker prior to the Pentagon “crash” and was tracking the plane as it approached the Pentagon but not taking action to intercept it.
The original Gallop case was thrown out of court in March 2010. Judge Denny Chin dismissed the suit with prejudice, contending that the complaint was based on “cynical delusion and fantasy.”Chin has since been promoted to the very court now hearing the appeal of his ruling.
Gallop’s lawyer, William Veale, made a motion this week to have Judge Walker disqualified from hearing the case, but this was denied. Also denied was the request for a continuance to appeal the decision.
Walker was chief justice of the Court of Appeals from 2000-2006 and has been serving as a senior member of the court since then. Many researchers into 9/11 will also point out that another Bush cousin, Wirt D. Walker III, was CEO of Securacom from 1999-2002 – the company that handled security for the World Trade Center. The company installed a new $8.3-million security system in the towers between 1996 and 2000.
The sheer arrogance of the perpetrators of 9/11 continues to amaze me. These people clearly believe they can get away with anything. And until enough of us get mad, then they’re probably right.
I truly hope that this latest travesty will be one too many and will backfire on Bush, Cheney, and their criminal accomplices. If it doesn’t, how can we ever take the justice system seriously again?

  1. “If it doesn’t, how can we ever take the justice system seriously again?”
    No are you serious?
    Does ANYONE take the “Justice” system serious now?
    There is no government in Amerika–this is predation.
    A protection racket is an extortion scheme whereby a criminal group or individual coerces other less powerful entities to pay money, allegedly for protection services against external threats (usually violence or property damage). Many racketeers will coerce potential clients into buying protection through property damage or other harassment. In most cases, the racketeers do little to protect the client from other predators, and their “protection” is little more than extortion.
    The protection money is typically collected by a “bag man”. In Amerika the bag man is the IRS.
    Income Tax is simple extortion.
    Numbers game, also known as policy racket or Italian lottery, is an illegal lottery, such as the game played on Wall Street.
    There’s no business like bullshit. And that is business as usual.~ww

    1. Good point. I don’t take it seriously now, but this is just so blatant. Maybe it’s a good thing if people in general – who might have had some faith in the system – begin to see the lie.

      1. Of course Craig, I was being rhetorical. It is obvious you are sophisticated enough to have seen this all along.
        We have got this same story up on Coto2…getting a lot of disgusted responses as well.
        This is so blatant that if Amerikans had any rocks at all it would be curtains for DC.

  2. Well of course I’m not surprised. I mean Prescott Bush and the Nazi’s, George the Elder and the CIA, George the younger and all the wars. . Of course the Bush brother and the collapse of the savings and loans. . How is it these people aren’t all in prison . .connections my friends, and this article spells it out again… Not to mention this following gem. .
    George H. W. Bush told White House correspondent Sarah McClendon in a 1992 interview that if the American people knew what the Bush family had done to this nation, they’d be chased down and lynched.
    Straight from the Horse’s “mouth” or other orifice depending on how civil you are…

  3. Don’t forget that this scumbag is also a Yale grad (Bonesman?) and he also ran over and killed a cop and wasn’t even charged. If any one of us plebs did that you had better bet your ass that we’d be tarred and feathered and thrown into prison to rot, despite the reason. How in the hell do we sit here and allow these elitist mfers to get away with this crap!!?? Man, the “ruling class” makes me sick..

  4. The ACTUAL quote from the interview is:
    Sarah McClendon: “What will the people do if they ever find out the truth about Iraq-gate and Iran contra?
    George H.W. Bush: “Sarah, if the American people ever find out what we have done, they will chase us down the streets and lynch us.”
    Not quite as bad, but still pretty much the same thing.

  5. Walker, Bush, Pierce, all one and the same. Maybe the Fukashima power plant radiation will provide justice to these devil-people. And how poetic would it be?? After dumping DU all over the planet they get to breathe in some radiation along with the rest of us. Hopefully it will target their reproductive organs!
    Just kidding. I love everyone. Expecially that affable George W. Bush…I mean he is the kind of guy who can restore honor to the White House! He is the kind of goofball I’d just love to have a beer with. Maybe cousin Judge Walker can join us! Judge Walker for President in 2012!!

  6. “They’ve even tried to stop other agencies like the American Red Cross from helping her,”
    This gives full explanation as to the kind of creatures we are dealing with.

  7. Most believe Cheney/Mineta were referring to the Shanksville shootdown, not the Pentagon Crash. Which was it? I heard a recording of Minetta’s testimony. He didn’t specify…… and nobody asked.
    So, “does the order still stand?” refer to allowing the Pentagon to be hit or allow the “Commercial” jetliner to be shot down?
    Or is this just another circle jerk that will be debated and argued for 48 years (and counting) like JFK questions?
    The fact that Gallop’s motion for Walker to recuse himself was denied shows she is wasting her time with this repugnant bucket of anal parts that we call a justice system.

    1. Here’s the 9/11 Commission testimony of Mineta:
      “During the time that the airplane was coming in to the Pentagon, there was a young man who would come in and say to the vice-president, ‘The plane is 50 miles out. The plane is 30 miles out.’ And when it got down to, ‘The plane is 10 miles out,’ the young man also said to the vice-president, ‘Do the orders still stand?’ And the Vice President turned and whipped his neck around and said, ‘Of course the orders still stand. Have you heard anything to the contrary?’” I wrote a post about this a few months ago:

    2. Mineta was OBVIOUSLY talking about the Pentagon hit–it was only the strategically timed interruption by the chair, Lee Hamilton that mixed some purposeful confusion into the matter.

    1. Yes it is possible–but certainly not through the courts or any political process.
      That leaves only one thing…
      “When in the course of Human Events it becomes necessary”…DO IT.

  8. Let’s not forget the Fordham law professor and Judge for the Southern District Denny Chin that carries water for the Bush Gang.
    Got military nano thermate in the 911 dust, judge?
    Building 7 collapses at free fall speed from office fires, judge?
    Got any off shore bank accounts funded by the U.S. Treasury, judge?
    It’s “the air is safe to breath and the water safe to drink” justice from this “Han Jian.”

  9. I said this over 20 years ago that this is the kind of s**t our government would pull, so they can shred the constitution. Eisenhower warned of the “Military-Industrial complex as he was leaving office. I believe Kennedy knew what was going on and was taken out. RFK could only do something if he could get into the White House, of course we know what happened there. Big Oil, Morgan, DuPont, the Bush family, and many others are hell bent on destroying this country in the name of “Globalism” where the elites control everything (money,etc.) while the rest of us are just pawns in their game.Iran-Contra(selling arms to our greatest enemy at the time all while denying it) then using the profits from that and drug sales from Vietnam later South America, having Noriega help in the supply line while they brought the drugs into Texas (Kelley AFB) to the streets of Los Angeles in the mid-80s. Research this people, this is the truth and it was Bush 41 who then pardoned all his buddies Poindexter, North, et al. Funny how Casey all of the sudden died right when this story broke isn’t it?

  10. Oh gee, I forgot the Rockefellers, who founded and or co-founded The Bilderburg Group, The Council on Foreign Relations, The Trilateral Comission, The Club of Rome. They call themselves “Think Tanks” but hold an event every year in Marin Co. CA. where they kill Uncle Sam in effigy and put him in a coffin (nice isn’t it). It’s a Bilderburger complex.

  11. I love how it says follow the “White Rabbit”.It should say follow the White Owl,for if you look at the very right hand corner of the dollar bill at the top left hand side of the #1 border you will see a white owl,and of course on the back below the “all seeing eye” the words “Novus Ordo Seclorum” or “New World Order” in latin.Scary enough for you guys yet?

  12. Hi Craig, was just getting round to setting up my own blog and came across yours while researching, nice site – and this whole case is virtually unheard of in the UK, I figured it needs more people spreading the message, otherwise what can we do. I don’t want to build a life within the current system, it’s not life. So my only options are setting up camp in a far off jungle or fighting to change the system. Maybe i could do both; chuck norris would.
    I’ll be checking back, thanks.

  13. Just curious Mr McKee,
    I notice your Gravitar profile says your a seasoned 23 year journalist from Montreal who has “won eight provincial and national weekly newspaper awards.” When I search google news for your name nothing comes up. Searching regular google under your name and Montreal brings up nothing. None of the major news papers in that area seem to have your name connected to them. Can you point us in the right direction?

    1. Certainly. The awards I mentioned were from the Canadian Community Newspaper Association and the Quebec Community Newspapers Association. They date back to the first half of the 1990s. Since then, I have freelanced for the Montreal Gazette (our largest English daily) along with the Mirror, Hour and others. I was also entertainment editor of The Suburban newspaper. As for Googling, I don’t know if these newspaper organizations would list winners of awards from 16-20 years ago or not. But I suppose you could call them if you are that curious.

  14. What ever happened with this case? Do I really need to ask?
    In the good ole days, there would be a lynching. We need to bring back the good ole days.

    1. The case if finally over as of this week. The lawyer for Gallop, William Veale, has been fined $15,000 for filing a “frivolous” lawsuit. A definite low point in U.S. justice.

      1. If that happened this week, then the “low point in U.S. Justice” was a one-two punch when the outcome of the Heditha (sp) massacre trial against the lone Sargent ended with a reduction in rank but not pay, no jail time, and while in recent months charges against another acquitted and against 8 others dropped who participated.
        True, this unit was becoming somewhat of a scapegoat for draconian policies and “methods to war & torture” trickling down from the highest government levels. But to not hold anyone accountable is effectively saying, “the US govt can do whatever the F*** it wants and nothing bad will stick.

  15. Arrest bush and Cheney now before Cheney dies of natural causes. World War 3 will start unless we regain our credibility in the world.

  16. THANK YOU FOR THIS ARTICLE… I was digging about the walker/bush relationship and this fucking judge was the residing Brick in my appellate case… IM Dealing with a motion for a recusal right now in the same case -dealing with the district judge… LOOK AT THESE MADE MEN>>> GET THEM OUT OF POWER..
