Cynthia McKinney served twelve years as a Member of the United States Congress House of Representatives. She was elected six times by the people of the State of Georgia.
Her latest book is, “When China Sneezes: From the Coronavirus Lockdown to the Global Politico-Economic Crisis” (Paperback – November 1, 2020)
Cynthia has been a champion against corruption in Washington, D.C. and has held responsible leaders accountable. Her questioning of Donald Rumsfeld on fiscal responsibility and the tragic events of September 11th has become legendary. As a Member of Congress, Cynthia challenged then-Secretary of Homeland Security Michael Chertoff to tell the truth about official failures in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina.
Apalled that a sizable proportion of U.S. homeless are veterans, Cynthia worked with the Department of Veterans Affairs to ensure that her veteran constituents were receiving their fair share of benefits. Cynthia is also responsible for the 25-year extension of Agent Orange benefits to Vietnam War era veterans.
Cynthia McKinney has become an internationally renowned human rights activist because of her readiness to step into the line of fire in order to achieve her goals. Cynthia has been stranded in international waters and rescued by the Lebanese Navy as she attempted to deliver humanitarian assistance to the besieged people of Gaza during Israel’s 22-day military attack on Gaza. Also as a result of her activism around Israel/Palestine issues, she served 7 days in an Israeli prison for attempting to deliver school supplies to Gaza’s children in the aftermath of this attack.
Cynthia had traveled to Libya just days before U.S./NATO operations against that country. After the outbreak of actual bombing of that country, Cynthia assembled a team of journalists and took them to Libya with the gold of reporting the truth as opposed to the war propaganda that the world’s people–especially inside the United States–were being fed. Cynthia reported on what she describes as many war crimes from the U.S./NATO operation against Libya.
