Synopsis: Elected six times to the House from the state of Georgia, Cynthia McKinney cut a trail through Congressional deceit like a hot ember through ash. She discovered legislators who passed laws without reading them. Party leaders who colluded across party lines against their constituents' interests. Black-skinned individuals shilling for the white status quo. She excoriated government lassitude over Hurricane Katrina, uncovering dark secrets. She held the only critical Congressional briefing on 9/11, introducing counter-testimony of scholars, investigators, former intelligence agents. As a member of the House Armed Services Committee, she held Rumsfeld to account for malfeasance by military contractors and missing billions in the Pentagon's budget. Then she hammered him on the reasons for the failure of NORAD air defenses on 9/11. She read truth into the Congressional Record, held town halls and hearings, led protests, showed up while others played along to get along, took the side of the people against the will of the Party. And when she got too truth seeking and speaking, the Republicans rigged the Democratic primaries to boot her out, leaving behind a trail of achievements mostly won singlehandedly. But McKinney rose again like a Phoenix, answering the call to run as 2008 Green Party candidate for President, challenging the corrupt two-party stranglehold on American democracy. Then it was on to the Freedom Flotilla to Gaza, to be seized on the high seas and imprisoned in Israel. On to Tripoli, to serve as witness to the NATO terror bombing of Libya. On to Malaysia to serve on the War Crimes Commission... Often introduced as the Sojourner Truth, the Harriet Tubman of our age, McKinney reflects here on the Biblical figures of Esther, Deborah and Naomi. This is the Cynthia McKinney saga as it stands to date--what she saw, what she learned, and how she fought for change.

About the Author: is a former Green Party Candidate for President of the United States, and a former 6 term Congresswoman from the newly created 11th District, a 64% black district active in the civil rights struggle. During her 6 terms in the U.S. Congress she was nationally known for her readiness to speak out on issues ranging from human rights abuses abroad to social inequities at home. McKinney holds a B.A. in international relations from the University of Southern California, and an M.A. in Law and Diplomacy from the Fletcher School of Law and Diplomacy.

Book Description Clarity Press, United States, 2013. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. Take a down to earth person, a straight talker, fair-minded, with a sense of justice for all, and of shock at discovery of the contrary, and you re at the beginning of the Cynthia McKinney story. But from there it surges to remote corners of the globe and embraces a multitude of struggles. It ranges from her boat-rocking tenure as a six-time-elected African American Congresswoman from Georgia to her seizure on the high seas aboard the freedom flotilla bound for Gaza and her removal to an Israeli jail, from her 2008 Green Party campaign for President of the United States to her nights spent in a Tripoli hotel to serve as witness to NATO s terror bombing of Libya. It s a story of justice pursued, a McKinney hallmark - from speaking truth to lawmakers and demanding it in return, to forays in the world s danger zones beyond the reach of law - and so many places in between. McKinney was the lone non-Gulf state Democratic voice on the House Committee investigating the federal government s lack of response to the devastation of Hurricane Katrina. She held the only Congressional briefing critical of the 9/11 Commission s flawed conclusions and faulty recommendations, introducing the analysis of scholars, investigators, and former intelligence agents who joined the 9/11 victims family members in questioning the premises and findings of that official inquiry. As a member of the House Armed Services Committee, she questioned Secretary of Defense Rumsfeld on malfeasance by military contractors and missing billions in the Pentagon s budget, as well as the reasons for the failure of NORAD air defenses on 9/11--questions that further revelations have legitimized. And then she crossed the line that can t be crossed, calling into question the one vested interest in Congress that none dare counter. This is the story, in her own frank, inspiring and sometimes hilarious words, of how it all went down. And stay tuned: the Cynthia McKinney story is far from over yet.
