Meet THE MAN who tried to arrest George W. Bush on March 17th, 2009 in Calgary, and learn why he did this.
In this interview Splitting the Sky (aka John Boncore) explains his actions in Calgary, Canada's laws pertaining to war crimes, and attempts to have Bush barred or arrested. He makes connections to 9/11, references his personal history with that day, discusses his investigations into put option stocks, then ties this to AIG, Hank Greenburg, Soros, Obama, Brzezinski, Kissinger, et al and the current financial meltdown (controlled economic collapse).
A Grand Slam!
This video is from "Face to Face" with guest host Chris Cook, to be aired soon in Victoria, BC, southern Vancouver Island and the Gulf Islands, potentially reaching 400,000 viewers.
We will attempt to have it aired in the Vancouver and the Fraser Valley region too, potentially reaching several million viewers.
Our thanks to our friends Steve Poole, Jack Etkin and Chris Cook at I.C.T.V. Victoria for working with us to do this show!

***** Taking it to the Streets *****
The indictment movement is also moving full steam ahead supporting a June 25 rally in Washington, D.C., as part of an international Torture Accountability Action Day. We are meeting at John Marshall Park (501 Pennsylvania Ave. NW) for a rally from 11am to 12noon, and then marching to the U.S. Department of Justice.
So, this was the reception in the Calgary lunch-with-Bush queue on March 17/09 -
The Struggle for Original People’s Title
Dissidentvoice.org - by Kim Petersen / April 7th, 2008
Dacajeweiah (Splitting the Sky), or John Boncore Hill, is a Kanien’keha:ka (Mohawk) warrior who has experienced extraordinarily much in his lifetime of struggle for justice. He was a central figure in two of the major standoffs in the twentieth century. Therefore, it is not surprising that his autobiography, From Attica Lake to Gustafsen Lake — Unmasking the Secrets of the Psycho-sexual Energy and the Struggle for Original People’s Title, written with his wife Sandra (She Keeps The Door) Bruderer, is a hefty book at 653 pages.
Splitting the Sky takes readers colloquially through his amazing life events, making the book an easy and informative, but necessarily long, read. Throughout his autobiography, he exposes the racist and imperialist agenda of colonialist governments in Turtle Island (North America). As a bookend, he tells of the struggle for Indigenous dignity and rights by a group of Sundancers at Ts’peten, aka Gustafsen Lake, in British Columbia (BC) and the so-called justice meted out afterwards. An early eerie ordeal was Splitting the Sky’s incarceration in New York’s notorious Attica State Prison.
Splitting the Sky was the only person sentenced to do prison time following the hostage-taking of prison guards that precipitated the state’s lethal storming of Attica on 13 September 1971, on the order of then New York governor Nelson Rockefeller. State police officers were implicated in the killing of, at least, 39 people, including 10 hostages at Attica prison. Splitting the Sky related how outlawed CN-4 gas was dropped into the jail before troops burst in and “were systematically killing in a blood rage like a thirst that could not be quenched.” A commission led by New York law professor Robert McKay described the assault as the “bloodiest one-day encounter between Americans, except for the massacres against Indians of the 19th Century.” Rockefeller called his decision to retake the prison “a matter of principle.” Splitting the Sky considered that Rockefeller had “sanctioned the death of 43 human beings” that day.
The major focus of the book, however, is on Gustafsen Lake, a lightly populated wilderness area in south-central BC, near the town of 100 Mile House. In 1995, a group of Original Peoples gathered there to celebrate the Sundance ceremony, previously forbidden by Canadian authorities. Splitting the Sky was honored as the chief of the ceremony.
Trouble arose when some ranch hands of the purported land owner, Lyle James, rode in, disturbed the sacred ceremonial site, and made derogatory remarks about “red niggers.” This incited a confrontation and the so-called occupation of the Gustafsen Lake ranch.
Update - (www.indictbushnow.org)
Because of the immense pressure brought by the Indict Bush movement, new revelations continue to come forth.
The Bush administration lied about the reason it decided to deprive detainees of Geneva Convention rights and protections. The real reason was that Bush and his lawyer decided that it was the best way to protect the President and other officials from criminal prosecution.
On January 11, 2002, the United States announced that it was refusing to abide by the 1949 Geneva Convention on the treatment of prisoners of war. The Third Geneva Convention, which provides specific guidelines for treatment of prisoner combatants, is a part of the "law of nations" and is a mainstay of international humanitarian law. The United States explained that the prisoners taken in Afghanistan and Pakistan were not actually prisoners of war, but were in fact "unlawful combatants."
The Bush administration always knew its programs were illegal and that they could be prosecuted for them. In January 2002, then-White House Counsel Alberto Gonzales advised Bush to deny prisoners of war protections under the Geneva Conventions. Doing so, Gonzales argued, "substantially reduces the threat of domestic criminal prosecution under the War Crimes Act" and "provides a solid defense to any future prosecution."
Bush's decision to end Geneva Convention protections sent a message to the U.S. military and intelligence services to commit war crimes. It was a decision that shocked many, including those within the military who rely on those protections for their own personnel.
Now, Bush is gone. There is a new president and a new attorney general. We could never expect justice from Bush's Department of Justice, but now we have the chance to make Bush's and Gonzales' worst nightmare - "future prosecution" - come true. Please take a moment right now and send a letter to Attorney General Eric Holder demanding immediate investigation and prosecution. (http://www.impeachbush.org/site/PageServer?pagename=WriteToHolder)
Bush officials, in their supreme arrogance, believed they could just annul the laws they didn't like - that this would "provide a solid defense" when they left office.
