9/11 Health & Compensation Bill Passes House
9/11 Health and Compensation Bill Passes House
September 29, 2010 -- Legislation to establish health treatment and monitoring programs for World Trade Center responders was overwhelmingly approved by a bipartisan majority of the U.S. House of Representatives.
H.R. 847, the James Zadroga 9/11 Health and Compensation Act, was approved by a vote of 268-160. The vote to pass the bill followed an attempt by Representative Christopher Lee (R-NY) and House Republican Leadership to amend H.R. 847 by adding unrelated legislation to repeal a portion of the health care reform law and reform the medical malpractice system. The motion failed by a vote of 185-244. Had the motion succeeded, it would have effectively killed the bill.
"I am pleased that the 9/11 Act passed the House by an overwhelming and bipartisan majority," says IAFF General President Harold Schaitberger. "World Trade Center responders know they are finally one step closer to receiving the care and benefits they need and deserve."

Update on HR 847 From John Feal
September 21, 2010
By John Feal
Dear Friends, Supporters and Fellow First Responders:
As most of you are aware, the past twenty-four hours have been extremely chaotic in regards to the James Zadroga 9/11 Health and Compensation Act. I, along with fellow FealGood Foundation board members, have worked with various union leaders to keep the pressure on our elected officials. As of approximately 5:30 today our bill was moved into the "Rules Committee" of the United States House of Representatives and prepared for full House vote. While a modest victory, this should be considered a step forward to our ultimate goal. However, to our great displeasure, a date for such a vote has not yet been announced. This is unacceptable and over the next twenty-four hours we will continue to place additional pressure on leadership to give us the date we have waited nine years for.
Make no mistake, all involved in this struggle consider it an insult of the highest degree that we are forced to continue to lobby House leaders to merely place this bill on calendar. Despite this, we have been advised that the bill will be given a date for vote tomorrow, September 22, 2010. While promises to this fragile community have been made and broken so many times that I do not expect you to believe this one, we must respect the leadership our New York Congressional Delegation has provided and rely on them to ensure that this promise is kept. Tomorrow, the 9/11 community expects to be able to celebrate its victory at the same time Democratic leaders from around the country converge on New York for political appearances and fundraising.

The Court Jester and 9/11 Truth
September 19, 2010
9/11 Truth News
Attacked by the Left. Attacked by the Right. Attacked by "edgy" political comedians for scant, confused laughs -- with no discernible purpose other than to discourage and further isolate those seeking justice. No matter if their political affiliation is Coke, or whether they lean hard towards Pepsi, everyone in the corporate mainstream media can agree that 9/11 truth is a target worthy of derision.
Yet, strangely, none of them can seem to get their story straight.
When left-wing commentators denounce 9/11 truth activists, the activists are derided as right-wing conspiracy freaks -- lumped in with the Tea Party and various hate groups. When it's the Right's turn to attack, those seeking answers about 9/11 are uniformly painted as Bush-burnt America haters, the very worst of the left-wing losers.
Sometimes -- just to mix it up -- a lefty journalist will agree that 9/11 truth is indeed a scourge of the Left, and even concoct a bizarre conspiracy theory to explain it away.
When it comes to political humor in the corporate media, the drill is exactly the same.

The Traitor Betrays Himself
A review of David Ray Griffin's new book, Cognitive Infiltration: an Obama Appointee's Plan to Undermine the 9/11 Conspiracy Theory
By Tod Fletcher
Shortly after taking office on January 20, 2009 President Obama appointed Harvard law professor (and personal friend) Cass Sunstein to the post of administrator of the White House Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs. In June 2009 Sunstein published an essay in The Journal of Political Philosophy entitled "Conspiracy Theories: Causes and Cures," in which he provided an "analysis" of conspiracy theories, viewing them, as his title indicated, as "caused" by "informational isolation" and requiring "cures", i.e., elimination. The article led to an outcry by civil libertarians of all political stripes, who especially singled out for protest Sunstein's call for covert "cognitive infiltration" by government agents of organizations the government deems "conspiracist".
Because Sunstein explicitly states that "9/11 conspiracy theories" are his main focus, virtually all interpreters have agreed that Sunstein's call for what is essentially another Cointelpro Operation is directed specifically against the 9/11 truth movement. (Cointelpro, or "Counter Intelligence Program", was the FBI's name for its high-priority operations to infiltrate, provoke, undermine and disable civil rights, socialist, antiwar, black power and Native American movements during the late 1950s and the 1960s.) The fantastic picture Sunstein paints of the 9/11 truth movement as "harmful," "dangerous," and likely to resort to "terrorism" suggests that he is serving a function similar to Philip Zelikow's during the Bush/Cheney years; in his own way, Sunstein too is a "myth-maker."

Our experiences and what we do with them shape and determine our trajectory. Often, they change us gradually; sometimes, they are immediately life altering. So much so that months, even years later, a thought, a song, even an aroma can transport us, abruptly, into the past. Some events are wonderful. Others are brutal.
The phone call from my sister, telling me that Chase was killed in Iraq, is among the brutal.
My nephew, Chase Comley, died a little over five years ago. He enlisted in the military because he believed our freedoms were in jeopardy, a message George Bush gaveled into the American psyche after 19 hijackers used planes as weapons to attack US symbols of power on 9/11.
This week, we mark the ninth anniversary of that turning point, the day that invokes images of death and destruction, and the date that heralded our post-9/11 world with its increased militarism/imperialism resulting in more death and destruction, mainstream media failure, the Patriot Act, a surveillance state, torture, indefinite detention, military tribunals, corporatism, economic collapse, and Islamophobia.

The Secret Files 9/11 Investigators Missed
by Philip Shenon
September 10, 2010
The Daily Beast.com
Why didn't the commission investigating the devastating 2001 al Qaeda attacks thoroughly scrub the NSA's files? Philip Shenon on the crucial records the government has never explored.
Are many of the secrets of 9/11 still hidden in top-secret government files?
Almost certainly, say former staff members of the 9/11 Commission. With the nation scheduled to mark the ninth anniversary of the terrorist attacks this weekend, former staffers tell The Daily Beast it is clear that the 9/11 Commission, which went out of business in 2004, failed to conduct a thorough inspection of the government's most important library of raw intelligence on al Qaeda and the 9/11 plot. And nobody appears to have inspected that intelligence since.

'9/11 Truth News' Website Focused on Responsible 9/11 News and Information
9th Anniversary of September 11th Attacks Welcomes "9/11 Truth News", a Website Focused on Responsible 9/11 News and Information
Not sure what to think about the 9/11 attacks? Perhaps you're curious on this 9th anniversary, but you want to avoid the circus of conspiracy theories, lies and disinformation? Starting now, you can go to 9/11 Truth News (www.911truthnews.com) for updates on under-reported news, effective activism being done by the international 9/11 Truth Movement, as well as highlights of the best research and scientific information regarding the attacks.
September 09, 2010
LOS ANGELES--If you follow the American "Mainstream Media" news, you might have reason to think that a person who questions the official version of the 9/11 attacks is just a tad off the mark, or even outright crazy. Yet, those people are all around you. Roughly 45% of people in the US - over 130 million - support a new investigation into the attacks, according to a 2006 Zogby poll. A global tally of truth seekers would dwarf the population of many countries.
In other words, the chances are pretty good that you or people you care about are looking for answers on this 9th anniversary. And yet with so many questions and so much public interest the issue remains basically taboo. Why the media blackout?
With no responsible coverage of the issue, everyday citizens have taken matters into their own hands, building an alternative media online. For the last 9 years, activists have taken to the web and to streets, creating tens of thousands of websites from all over the world and working to increase public awareness in their own communities.

New Scientific Evidence Undermines Afghanistan War
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
September 10, 2010
On the eve of the 9th anniversary of 9/11, support for the war in Afghanistan took a serious blow yesterday. Simultaneous press conferences were held in New York and Los Angeles to present startling new information refuting the official 9/11 narrative, used to justify the war. Also announced were three major professional groups which have joined the worldwide, and ever-growing, "9/11 Truth Movement".
In a striking show of unity, representatives of "Scientists for 9/11 Truth", "U.S. Military Officers for 9/11 Truth" and "Actors & Artists for 9/11 Truth" presented their findings and unveiled their eye-opening websites. Each non-profit group has launched a petition calling for a new, transparent investigation.
In NY, representing "Scientists", Professor Niels Harrit said, "The official account put forth by NIST violates the fundamental laws of physics and chemistry." Harrit is Prof. Emeritus at the University of Copenhagen and was lead author for a 2009 peer-reviewed study that revealed evidence of high tech explosives throughout the WTC dust. ...

1,270 Architects/Engineers Reveal Hard Evidence of Explosive Demolition at World Trade Center on 9/11
September 7, 2010
WASHINGTON, Sept. 7
National Press Club, Washington DC, 2:00 pm, Thursday, September 9, 2010
WASHINGTON, Sept. 7 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- On Thursday September 9, 2010, Gravel and Gage will host a central press conference at the National Press Club in Washington, DC, presenting hard evidence that all three WTC skyscrapers on September 11, 2001, in NYC were destroyed by explosive controlled demolition.
Senator Gravel notes, "Critically important evidence has come forward after the original government building reports were completed."
This press conference will be webcast at AE911Truth.org and hosted concurrently in cities throughout the world.* Following the conference, there will be a mock debate during which public statements made by government investigators and other defenders of the official account will be presented and responded to in multimedia format. "They refuse to debate us in person," says Gage, "so we will let their public statements represent them."
Gage will release a media-friendly summary of his organization's findings, which are based on forensic evidence as well as video and eyewitness testimony that were omitted from official reports. He will show evidence that the WTC Twin Towers were not destroyed by jet plane impacts or fires, but by pre-set explosives and incendiaries. The non-profit organization, Architects & Engineers for 9/11 Truth, will also call for a grand jury investigation of government report lead engineers Shyam Sunder and John Gross of the National Institute of Standards and Technology. "They were in a position to know the evidence we have been presenting," says Gage.

International Center for 9/11 Studies Secures Release of Thousands of Photos and Videos from NIST
August 31, 2010
911blogger.com, James Gourley's blog
The International Center for 9/11 Studies has secured the release of hundreds of hours of video footage and tens of thousands of photographs used by the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) for its investigation of the collapse of the World Trade Center Twin Towers and Building 7. This material is being released to the Center under the Freedom of Information Act, in response to a lawsuit the Center filed against NIST.
The Center filed a FOIA Request with NIST on January 26, 2009, seeking production of "all of the photographs and videos collected, reviewed, cited or in any other way used by NIST during its investigation of the World Trade Center building collapses." Following several unsuccessful attempts to get NIST to even acknowledge receipt of the Request, the Center was forced to file a lawsuit on May 28, 2009. Shortly after the lawsuit was filed, the Request was assigned a reference number, and NIST began periodically releasing batches of responsive records. To date, the Center has received over 300 DVDs and several external hard disk drives that contain responsive records - more than 3 terabytes of data so far - and NIST has indicated that additional records will be released in the future.

The 9/11 Working Group of Bloomington's presentation Saturday at the Buskirk-Chumley Theater titled "Peace Through Truth; 9/11 and State Crimes Against Democracy" outlined speakers' skepticisms toward the events that took place on 9/11.
Speakers included Graeme MacQueen, founding director for McMaster University's Centre for Peace Studies in Ontario, and behavioral neuroscientist Laurie Manwell.
"The folks who are engaged in the movement are serious scholars who come to conclusions based on evidence that should be available to everyone in the room," said Byron Bangert, member of the 9/11 Working Group of Bloomington.
