"American Assassination: The Strange Death of Senator Paul Wellstone" Has Been Published

Today Publisher Sander Hicks announced a press conference at the National Press Club in Washington D.C for Monday October 25, 2004 at Noon to introduce the authors and announce the publication of "American Assassination: The Strange Death of Senator Paul Wellstone." On October 25th, the second anniversary of the tragic plane crash that claimed the lives of Senator Wellstone, his wife and daughter, three aides and two pilots. Authors Jim Fetzer and Don Trent Jacobs will join Publisher Sander Hicks in Washington to reveal what really happened that day and call for a full Senate investigation into the death of Minnesota Senator Paul Wellstone.
"With new evidence and scientific rigor, Drs. Fetzer and Jacobs systematically appraise the alternative explanations for the death of a United States Senator. Their conclusion–that Paul Wellstone was the target of an assassination–is very disturbing. It should motivate authorities to launch a formal inquiry into the death of this remarkable American," said Donald T. Phillips, Author of Lincoln on Leadership. Professor David Gabbard, East Carolina University, also lauded their findings, “Meticulous research...rigorous analysis. Their efforts lead us to only one conclusion."

Two years ago, all eyes were on the Senate race of Senator Paul Wellstone. In the wake of the defection of Jim Jeffords, the White House hand-picked Norm Coleman to attempt to unseat the populist Wellstone. But Coleman still trailed Wellstone late in the campaign. On October 11th, Wellstone voted against the President’s war on Iraq, despite a dire personal warning of "severe ramifications" from Vice President Cheney. As the result of his vote, Wellstone’s popularity soared. Then tragedy struck. Just ten days before his probable re-election, Senator Wellstone was killed in the mysterious crash of his small aircraft. On October 25, 2002, the American people suffered the loss of a leader for peace and justice. Some folks harbored suspicions. And some remember how the media blamed the weather.

After two years of research, James Fetzer, Ph.D. and Don "Four Arrows" Jacobs, Ph.D., prove that the weather did not kill Senator Wellstone. Nor were the two pilots incompetent, as the final report of the National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) claimed. With impeccable logic, these two highly-lauded university professors ask the hard questions: Why the mysterious cessation of communication from the airplane right before the crash? Why did a passer-by experience cell phone interference at the exact time the pilots lost control? How did the FBI arrive at the crash scene, only an hour or so after the first responders, and eight hours before the NTSB?

At the time of Senator Wellstone’s death, 69% of Minnesotans polled said they had a hunch a "GOP Conspiracy" was at play. Now, a new book makes the case that the common people were right all along.

Professor James Fetzer is the Distinguished McKnight University Professor of Philosophy at the University of Minnesota. He has published more than 20 books in the philosophy of science and on computer science, artificial intelligence, and cognitive science. Three of his books examine the death of President John Fitzgerald Kennedy: Assassination Science, Murder in Dealey Plaza, and The Great Zapruder Film Hoax.

Don Trent Jacobs, Ph.D., Ed.D. is an associate professor at Northern Arizona University. Don Trent Jacobs, aka “Four Arrows,” is the author of 12 books on critical thinking and wellness. He is the 2004 recipient of the Martin-Springer Moral Courage Award. Of Cherokee/Creek/Scots/Irish ancestry, Dr. Jacobs has been a staunch activist for American Indian rights, as was Senator Paul Wellstone.

Published by Vox Pop, American Assassination is the debut title of this imprint of the Drench Kiss Media Corporation. DKMC was founded recently by Sander Hicks. Hicks is the "punk of publishing" featured in the documentary Horns and Halos broadcast recently on Cinemax, which detailed his republication of the prescient Bush biography Fortunate Son.

The press and public are invited to the Noon press conference and to the evening authors’ reception

I thought Wellstone had been forgotten,
I am happy that was not the case.

I can't wait to buy this book. I was glued to the TV set when all of this happened and I wish I had the VCR taping it all. The story changed a lot in the 24 hours after the crash as Republican lap dogs like Wolf Blitzer went into spin mode for the Bush Administration. After two days of following the story, I realized that the great Sen. Paul Wellstone had been the latest victim in the Bush Family body count.

The Bush Family is evil incarnate and must be voted out in 2004!
