It was October 12, 2001, barely a month following the most devastating terrorist attack on U.S. Soil in that country’s history.

Radio station KPFA in Berkeley, California was broadcasting an interview with Mike Ruppert, an investigative journalist, whistle-blower and former LAPD narcotics detective. Ruppert was broaching the subject of fore-knowledge of the September 11 attacks. The discussion (see the transcript here) presented one of the first bullet-proof arguments outlining U.S. Government foreknowledge of the terrorist attacks.

Following this broadcast, talks followed. One of the most important being Mike Ruppert’s talk at Portland State University in Oregon, entitled “The Truth and Lies of 9-11.”

Guns and Butter broke important new journalistic ground at a critical time in world history. And according to the current host of the show, the driving force behind Guns and Butter was Kellia Ramares.

That broadcast journalist passed away in August of 2015 at the age of 60.

Kellia Ramares would start breaking stories related to environmental collapse, peak oil, the so-called War on Terrorism, and alternative economics. She has contributed to a number of independent media outlets including The Women’s International News Gathering Service (WINGS), Online Journal, Free Speech Radio News, National Native News, Workers Independent News, Global Public Media, and Global Research.

This week’s episode of the Global Research News Hour is dedicated to the memory of reporter that embodied the spirit of independent journalism, in a media age when such devotion to the truth can be an impediment to media careers. Indeed, she struggled to make a living from her immense output of high quality work.

The links below provide samples of her work, starting with an archive of her contributions to Global Research, including a talk and a handful of interviews which aired over the last year on the radio show.
