September 27, 2008—New York, NY—As the Congress continues to work on the rescue package, renamed from bailout package 9/11 responders throughout America wait for a vote on HR7174 the 9/11 Health & Compensation Bill, seven years after 9/11.
SAVE THE BRAVE, a documentary was given to all Members of Congress encouraging their support for the much needed help responders require following their service at Ground Zero. Real illnesses and no actors were used in making this portrait of suffering.

The Pentagon has ordered that raids on suspected terrorist targets within Pakistan be stepped up to pressurise al-Qaeda leaders and distract them from preparing attacks on American targets elsewhere.
"The aim is to disrupt their scope for planning and keep their leaders on the move so that it is more difficult for them to co-ordinate complicated plots," a senior US intelligence official told The Sunday Telegraph.
The operations launched from neighbouring Afghanistan have led to sharply increased tensions with Pakistan's armed forces since President George W.Bush recently authorised assaults involving "boots on the ground" without prior approval by Pakistan's government, a supposed US ally.
If the Government should have any hand in the control of the Home Mortgage business they should simply control:
A. The types of loans allowed by banks.
B. The maximum interest rate allowed.
C. The qualifications for those loans.
This is the control that they should have maintained from the beginning. Now they have allowed bad business to lead us into this compromised position. They know exactly how these things happen and should have done something to curb this situation. That is unless this was all engineered. I think we know the answer to that question.
I am here to ask for your suggestions on a solution to this problem that will rectify this situation. I have the beginnings to a plan and would welcome any ideas.
If we are ever going to take back this country we are going to have to show our own resolve. Create a means by which the people can have a say or a guiding hand in positive solutions. If the people are the ones creating the laws and legislation we won't need the government to do it for us.

For Grover "Drown Government in the Bathtub" Norquist, this bailout deal will work out very well. At a proposed cost of $4,780 per taxpayer, it'll further the David Stockman strategy of so indebting us that the next president won't have the luxury of even thinking of new social spending (expanding health care, social security, education, infrastructure, etc.); taxes will even have to be raised just to pay for the bailout. It'll debase our currency, driving up commodity prices and interest rates, which will benefit the Investor Class while further impoverishing the pesky Middle Class, rendering them less prone to protest (because they're so busy working trying to pay off their debt). It'll create stagflation for at least the next half decade, which can be blamed on Democrats who currently control Congress and, should Obama be elected, be blamed on him.
A new Google group for 9/11 truthers, especially those in Utah, but all are welcome.
I wish i knew how to paste this video on my blog. I still haven't figured out how to do it. Sorry.
Here is the You tube link.
This should be shown prime time on ALL tv channels. The one thing i found compelling is this.
The TRUTH is easy to understand !
Just see for yourselves. Please forward this to everyone you know.
Not really, but it's as good a theory as what NIST proposed. They can find the Ice Age at Ground Zero, but they can't find evidence of unexploded thermite/thermate or the traces of its use?
NYC Trade Center dig exposes Ice Age landscape
Mon Sep 22, 5:19 PM ET
NEW YORK - Crews excavating the World Trade Center site this summer for the foundations of a new skyscraper have uncovered features carved into the bedrock by glaciers about 20,000 years ago, including a 40-foot-deep pothole.
Exposing the solid rock beneath at the ground zero site in lower Manhattan is critical for supporting what will be Tower 4 of the new World Trade Center, being built by Silverstein Properties.
"You want to make sure you're not perching something on a ledge," said Anthony Pontecorvo, a supervising structural engineer at Mueser Rutledge Consulting Engineers, which is working on the project.
While removing the overlying soil is an engineering necessity, the digging has given scientists a rare window into the deep past and formations like the huge pothole.
Statement Of September 11th Advocates Regarding The Release Of The NIST Final Draft Of Collapse Of WTC7
For Immediate Release
September 26, 2008
NIST has finally released its long awaited investigative report regarding the collapse of World Trade Center 7. WTC 7 was the third building in the World Trade Center Complex to collapse at 5:20 PM on September 11, 2001. However, this building was not hit by an airplane.
As family members of 9/11 victims, we were extremely interested in the findings of this report. We had hoped that NIST’s report would serve to explain the cause of a total collapse of a conventional steel building and be able to refute the rampant conspiracy theories. We also hoped that this report, in conjunction with NIST’s final reports on WTC 1 and 2, would offer recommendations for improved building and fire codes to ensure public safety in ALL buildings going forward.
While we feel that technical experts should review, critique and replicate the findings within this report, we also feel that we must express our concerns based on public comments by NIST regarding their findings.
Over the past seven years, the Families of the 9/11 Victims have been repeatedly told by fire experts, engineers and architects that we should NOT FOCUS our efforts on advocating for building and fire code changes based on the collapse of the WTC 1 and 2 towers. We were continuously reminded that the crashing of airplanes into buildings was a unique event. Additionally, we were told that the design and construction of WTC Towers 1 and 2 was unique and that there were no other buildings of that particular height or design in the world. We were repeatedly told that the key was WTC 7 since this building was of conventional design and height, yet it too collapsed without the unique event of an airplane striking it.
Apparently this was broadcast on a local Dutch TV station, RTV Rijnmond on 9/11 this year.
and place stock in divine visions, here is a reported vision by founding father George Washington that claimed the United States would face it's most serious, third crisis in the future, yet it's citizens emerge free.
GEORGE WASHINGTON'S REMARKABLE VISION
NOTE: The following was originally published by Wesley Bradshaw in the National Review, Vol. 4, No. 12, December 1880.
The last time I ever saw Anthony Sherman was on July 4, 1859, in Independence Square. He was then 99 years old, and becoming very feeble. But though so old, his dimming eyes rekindled as he gazed upon Independence Hall, which he came to visit once more. "Let us go into the hall," he said. "I want to tell you an incident of Washington's life -- one which no one alive knows of except myself; and if you live, you will before long, see it verified."
"From the opening of the Revolution we experienced all phases of fortune, now good and now ill; one time victorious and another conquered. The darkest period we had, I think, was when Washington, after several reverses, retreated to Valley Forge, where he resolved to spend the winter of 1777.
John Feal just received a call from Rep. Carolyn Maloney. H.R. 6594 is going to be introduced on the House Floor tomorrow morning. Please please please call your Representative, and tell them that you support this bill. I don't need to tell you how much they need this. Thank you for doing what you can.
Jack Ruby's assassination of accused JFK assassin Lee Oswald is ample evidence of a conspiracy. http://www.maebrussell.com/Disappearing%20Witnesses/Ruby%20Oswald.gif
Why would a strip club operator sacrifice his freedom and possibly his life to "spare Mrs Kennedy the trauma of a trial"? That makes no more sense than the collapse of Building Seven at near free fall speed due to fire.
We missed the opportunity to turn back from the road to fascism when JFK was murdered. Exposing the obvious discrepancies of the official story may have been a more effective strategy than even the Vietnam war protests. Long live 9/11 truth!
Forget Republican versus Democratic. That's a false dichotomy. Its the Democrats in Congress who are now trying to pass the fat cat welfare, taxpayer-funded bailout. Forget labels. Forget politics. Forget who should get credit for good ideas. Let's look at substance and do what's best for the country.
House Republicans are pushing a meaningful alternative to the Paulson bailout plan.
CNBC has the story:
In a letter to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, House Minority Leader John Boehner urged that the proposals be "given the consideration they deserve."
The proposals include:

Thanks to the Sept. 11 interview of Sarah Palin by Charles Gibson of ABC News, the Bush Doctrine has become part of the American vocabulary. Although it has been a fateful doctrine - it was used to justify the attack on Iraq - many Americans reported that they were as clueless about it as Gov. Palin.
So what is the Bush Doctrine? According to international law as generally understood since the creation of the United Nations, a pre-emptive attack is legal only if a country has certain knowledge that an attack on it is imminent - too imminent for the matter to be taken to the U.N. Security Council.
Pre-emptive war is different from preventive war, in which a country, fearing that another country may become strong enough to threaten it at some time in the future, attacks it to prevent this possibility. Preventive wars are illegal under international law.
