Mike Palecek: Announcing PENN Magazine

Mike Palecek
WE INVITE YOU to visit Penn Magazine at pennmagazine.us.
This brand new publication is named in honor of Penn Jones, Jr., perhaps the first researcher of the John F. Kennedy murder.
We thank him.
​— Penn Jones 
“There are NO wrong questions, about 9/11, Sandy Hook, Boston, Bigfoot, UFOs, Las Vegas, RFK, MLK, JFK, Paul Wellstone, OKC, Waco, Aurora, San Bernardino, Charlottesville, Tucson …”
We launch on yet another anniversary of the John F. Kennedy assassination. It still matters. It’s all that matters. Everything changed on that day. 
It’s not ancient history. On the little timeline of world history at the bottom of the sixth grade world history textbook with time measured in millions of years it’s still the same day.
Some of us don’t think much about the Kennedy assassination, some of us have thought of nothing but.
Some have spent years working on that puzzle at the kitchen table, over time they fade away, others take their places, the puzzle takes shape.
And over the years the puzzle has become very big, with large pieces and very tiny pieces, the paid puzzle-makers hard at work, every day, for years and years. they are full-time.
Lucky for us, there are among us unpaid, volunteer workers who toil just as hard.
painting by Doug Auld, “The Whistleblowers”
These men, our “Enigmatologists,” [PAGE 6] are doing the jobs of journalists who chose not to follow in the intrepid shoes of Penn Jones. Professors Jim Fetzer, Kevin Barrett, James Tracy are among those who have sat at the table in recent years, laboring, picking up pieces, trying to match them to the existing work.
They are the reporters sent out by Penn Jones, Jr. They are the ones like you and like me …

“… those hundreds of people, in Biloxi, Baraboo, Barstow, Butte, Bancroft and Brooklyn, … those people who, on Nov. 22, or Nov. 23, or Nov. 24, 1963 … or sometime during the following week, on a long or short walk … or at the kitchen table pouring Froot Loops for the kids or for themselves — those first persons who sat upright in bed at 2:35 a.m. and said, “This is bullshit.”

You know who you are.
IN THIS INAUGURAL ISSUE of Penn Magazine you will also find stories on The New American Dream Radio Show and some of the regular guests on that show:
SUSAN LINDAUER — a harrowing account of her arrest by the FBI
KAREN KWIATKOWSKI — was stationed at the Pentagon on Sept. 11, 2001
FRANK CORDARO — member of the Des Moines Catholic Worker, former Catholic priest, has spent over six years in federal prison for fighting the U.S. military machine
RICHARD FLAMER — from the Chiapas, Mexico Catholic Worker
ANTHONY RAYSON — former Chicago toll-booth operator publishes the writings of America’s prisoners, writing from behind prison walls
MK DAVIS Believe It Or Not: Bigfoot is real
MICKEY Z — from Astoria, Queens New York City, writer, activist, now working with homeless women
AVA BIRD — poet from Los Angeles
by PENN JONES, JR. — “Dan Rather Blinked”
PHILIP A. FARRUGGIO — “Fools For Phony Wars”
MICHAEL & ME— I visit New York City and we meet Michael Moore and Garrison Keillor along the way”

These are not stupid men, presumably. 

They are too tall and wearing suits and they are on TV and people know their names — and they know full well how their bread is buttered and by whom. They also did not say boo or you betcha when their fellow Minnesotan, Paul Wellstone, was murdered for having questioned the official 9/11 story.

Ruth and I saw Moore in his Broadway Show and well …
Jim Fetzer, Jessica Reznicek, Kevin Barrett, Ruby Montoya, Sophia Smallstorm, Frank Cordaro, and James Tracy should be preaching, cavorting, singing, dancing commando-style in the Belasco Theater every night for the next two years.  … Then you would have something.


More from The New American Dream Radio Show:
“The New American Dream means never having to say some question or idea is not valid.

We are allowed to ask any questions that we have … there are no wrong questions.

There is no hidden black military budget, there are no UFO files Americans cannot see, no JFK documents that will not be opened during our lifetimes, no destroyed RFK murder photos by the L.A. police, no evidence from Ground Zero taken away before we can even look at it — we are not the U.S.S.R. of the 1960s — this is supposed to be America. That is our dream, to become America, The New America, the real hope of the world. …

… We have a dream …

… of bringing the United States politicians, journalists and generals who have brought about this long 13-year war and debacle to trial — and put on TV just like O.J. — every afternoon — so every American can watch  … just like the McCarthy Hearings and the JFK funeral procession …

What we need is a New American Dream.

Not of new homes and toasters and microwaves, but of becoming the type of country we always thought we were.

Right now we live on lies. We subsist on lies, but it’s not really living.

911 was an inside job.

They all know that. 

What we need in America is a Truth Commission like they had in South Africa to heal their broken country. We need to put certain people on the stand and we need to be allowed to ask questions.
Our country is surely broken as well.

The troops are not protecting us. That is someone’s spin on the day’s news – somebody’s advertising slogan — someone else’s sermon.

The troops serve the empire. They are not heroes. They kill and plunder for the empire. American bases overseas serve nobody but the empire. The heroes in our country are the protesters, the ones who go face to face with the empire, those in the Plowshares Movement, for one example.

You have to know that Donald Trump knows the whole truth about the 9/11 attacks. He is complicit. He has lied. He has continued the wars everywhere based on a lie. And he knows he is lying.
Trump lies right to our faces on national television just as Barack Obama did when he said that Osama bin Laden had been killed … and buried at sea. … Osama bin Laden was buried at sea … and Jessica Lynch was rescued heroically, the U.S.A. does not torture, Iraq had weapons of mass destruction, George Bush won the 2000 election, see, there is a plane there in that hole in Shanksville, it went all the way into that hole and no, there is no blood and no bodies and no luggage scattered … or plane parts … and Osama bin Laden … was buried at sea. …

Remember the anthrax letters, which said “Are You Afraid?” Those were not written with a rock and chisel like Fred Flintstone from the recesses of some cave in Afghanistan. Those letters came from persons within our own government.

Like a horror movie and the killer is in the same house with us.

These killers are right here, with us and “they” want us to be afraid.


Yes, 9/11 was an inside job.

How many times have we heard that, but look outside. You go. I’ll wait here.
… It bears repeating. I know, right?
And so, in this issue of Penn Magazine we also have excerpts from “Guests of the Nation,” and “Iowa Terror.”

I WANTED TO DO GUESTS OF THE NATION in an attempt to show what really happened on Sept. 11, 2001, in a way that had not yet been done. I hoped that the artists and I could use our creativity to get behind the scenes, albeit in our imagination, really show it.

I think we might have done something like that in a few of the images, but not most.

I am always amazed at the great work done by the artists involved in my book projects. I must thank Michael Paul Miller and Allison M. Healy for the inside artwork, and Russell Brutsche for the cover art.

I no longer believe that planes were used however. I think the deception goes much deeper than that.

IOWA TERROR TELLS THE STORY of Jesus Iowa, a high school kid who saw the towers coming down on the TV wheeled into history class by the janitor and saw what no one else saw, the truth, so he had to leave town, but he came back. It features the outstanding art work of Ben Heine, Ian Ward, Russell Brutsche, and Allison M. Healy.
Someone was killing the Democrats
of Orange County, Iowa.
The prime suspect was Jesus Iowa,
the terrorist.
The Democrats are dying anyway. ​
…​ So, there you have it, except there’s a lot more, please check it out at pennmagazine.us

  1. Jim: Your writings are really great with excellent detail and evidence BUT you don't just want anyone being an apologist for you. William Shanley is a sociopath and very clever. He is harming you and not helping you. I knew him in new London and his roommate committed suicide! He is a manipulator and is not representing you well at all. He got kicked out of local stores b/c of his overall behavior. He will routinely get into arguements on a City bus and the green downtown at the depot center and train station. None of this has to do with sandy Hook. You need to cut your losses b/c eventually he will ask you for money if you have not already given it to him. He drives people in his neighborhood crazy with his over the top behavior. I don't want people to be repulsed by you b/c of William; this is what he is doing to you!! Severe all ties with him. He is a liar and a fabricator of extraordinary dimensions. People who have known him since the 1970's avoid him like the plague b/c of his manipulativeness back then NOT sandy hook. He is a user of people, very selfish and does you harm whenever he cites you in public. He will lose all his lawsuits nnot b/c of lack of evidence but behavior alone. Keep in mind that everything he has told you easily half of it is a lie or a distortion.

  2. Why do you think all these mass shootings are a drill? And why so many drills? Is it so hard to fathom that there are really mentally disturbed people out there that want to become famous for perpetrating one of the worst massacres? Is it easier to call it a "drill" than to deal with the reality that we are living in a world where killing innocent people is okay? And when you realize that these are real, people died, families are suffering, how will you reconcile yourself that you just added to the hurt by denying the existence of these beings because of your need to refuse reality? I get it. It's much easier to disbelieve that there are really horrible people out there that think shooting innocent people is fun than to feel compassion and empathy to those who have lost loved ones. I would rather err on the side of being a human being and send love to those who are grieving rather than assume the government is responsible for another drill. Don't get me wrong, the government is corrupt but that's no excuse for calling all these murders a hoax. People are dying. Families are grieving. And being a conspiracy theorist just compounds the hurt.
