While in town to deliver a speech on the economy, President Bush held a private meeting with Ceasar Borja, Jr., the son of a 9/11 first responder who died last week waiting for a lung transplant.
Bush met with Borja Jr., who has been on a crusade in his father's name to get funding for other first responders who have become ill.
Cesar Borja, Sr. was an NYPD officer who spent countless hours at the World Trade Center site in the wake of the 9/11 attacks.
During the meeting Borja, Jr. said he asked for the federal government to completely fund any medical treatment for anyone suffering for a 9/11 related illness.
"I expressed how the funding should be expanded, not just for the heroes and heroines that were present there without hesitation, who ran to save, rescue, and ensure a future for all of the lives that they found there."

A City University building badly damaged in the September 11th attacks is finally slated to be demolished. But residents of the community are concerned that the demolition might release toxins into the air. NY1's Lindley Pless filed the following report.
“A lot of stuff is being done with the first responders. We feel the residents are the forgotten people being left in the background,” said area resident Craig Hall. “And residents are now getting sick and we are highly concerned about that.”
At Tuesday night's public information session at the Borough of Manhattan's Community College, local residents were given a chance to speak out about their concerns that bringing down Fiterman Hall will release toxins into the air they breathe every day.

NEW YORK -- Sick 9/11 workers and residents gathered near ground zero before President Bush's speech on Wednesday to criticize as inadequate his proposal to spend an additional $25 million to fund a health care program.
About a dozen people rallied near the World Trade Center site about an hour before Bush delivered the economic speech at nearby Federal Hall.
Ceasar Borja Jr., who lost his father, a ground zero worker, last week was originally scheduled to attend the rally. But instead, he was preparing for a meeting with the president.
White House spokesman Tony Snow said Bush planned to meet privately after his speech with Borja; his mother, Eva; brother, Evan; and sister, Nhia.
"First responders who need treatment will get the treatment they need," Snow said earlier Wednesday. "Many are already covered by insurance programs, many through their union; but if there are gaps in that, we're going to do it."
We Need YOUR Help!
A movement is quickly growing in the small – yet influential – northeastern city of Burlington, Vermont. We have collected enough signatures to place an advisory question on the ballot asking our congressional delegation to “to demand a new, thorough, and truly independent forensic investigation that fully addresses the many questions surrounding the tragic events of September 11, 2001.”
We need to educate our fellow voters about the many unanswered questions surrounding September 11th.We will be talking to as many people as we can, registering new voters and pushing on this issue for discussion. But we need YOUR HELP!
Does anyone have any information relating to illnesses from ground zero exposure sufferred by people who work near the wtc site. I, for one was present for the collapses and was called back to work on 9/12/01. Although I never stepped directly on the pile of rubble, I was within two city blocks of it until the end of November of 01. It is now more than 5 years later and I still suffer from chronic sinus infection, gastric reflux and post traumatic stress syndrome.
Says he hasn’t watched the whole thing, but is aware of the concern about 9/11, thinks "911: Press for Truth" while not mentioning "conspiracy" contains "one sided arguments" and it is his "strong belief" that a real investigation isn’t needed.
If anyone wants to keep the pressure on here's another blog that needs voting up;
MI5/6 funding terrorism?
Notice: Sorry for the site outage this morning, this occurred due to abuse being done on the web which referenced this website, and was not within our control.
We've been getting more and more non-9/11 related submissions lately. Seems like there is a desire for a site that is 9/11 skeptic friendly, but covers a lot more than just 9/11 related subjects..
So, here is an open thread. We will try to have these more frequently, in return please understand that we would like to keep the blog submissions 9/11 related - that is what people are coming here to find!
Open thread, have at it!
Note: There are only a couple days left in our fund raiser to help disabled first responders. We have just hit $2600 of our $5000 goal, please help out if you can by donating today!
Truth in a Culture of Fear and Hate.
The Manipulation of America’s Truth Bearers
By Troy Perkins
Problem, Reaction, Solution - A Familiar Story.
It’s no secret that I’m a Star Wars fan. In the movie, Star Wars Episode III, Revenge of the Sith, the Galactic Republic is crumbling in the midst of an epic war with the Confederacy of Independent Systems under the leadership of a Sith Lord named Count Dooku, a confederacy ultimately controlled by the deceptive (and secret Sith lord himself) Chancellor Palpatine of the Republic. (Those that are not familiar with it, indulge me and those that are fans, bear with me as I explain for others.)
Palpatine had positioned himself as the Chancellor over the entire Galactic Senate through a series of manufactured crises and manipulations using his political influence and had gained emergency powers to fight the very “enemy” that he had stirred up, trained and united against his Republic. It is a classic example of a form of manipulation known in the real world as “problem-reaction-solution”.
