HIGH RISE SAFETY INITIATIVE

.

http://highrisesafetynyc.org/

Dear Supporters,

The New York City Coalition for Accountability Now (NYC CAN) is excited to announce the launch of the “High-rise Safety Initiative,” a new ballot initiative that will amend the New York City Charter to require the NYC Department of Buildings to investigate all high-rise building collapses occurring in New York City on or after September 11, 2001, except the collapse of WTC 1 and 2. The Initiative will apply to the collapse of WTC 7 on September 11, 2001, as well as any high-rise collapse that occurs in the future.

As many of you know, the City of New York blocked NYC CAN’s 2009 ballot initiative from going before the voters and becoming law. Five years later, we are sponsoring a new ballot initiative that has been carefully crafted to withstand any legal challenge the City might bring.

We invite you to read the petition.
The Road to the Ballot

American Anthrax: A Media Roots Film Production

Media Roots presents American Anthrax, a documentary comprised of news footage that establishes, by history’s own narration, how everything you’ve been told about the Anthrax Attacks is a lie. Conceptualized, edited and produced by Robbie Martin, co-host of Media Roots Radio.

September 11, 2001, shook the United States to the core, a country that had been nearly untouchable since its democratic inception. However, immediately following this horrific tragedy, another equally as impactful ‘terrorist attack’ occurred when weaponized anthrax was sent to multiple Congressman and journalists through the U.S. Postal Service. The attacks on the World Trade Center and the Pentagon were both one-time events that happened in two prominent cities. Unlike 9/11, the Anthrax Attacks localized terrorism and spread fear to every corner of American life, where the simple act of getting your mail could prove to be fatal. Five people died as a result of breathing in the deadly anthrax spores, including postal workers and one NY Post reporter. Countless others were infected.

Initial response from DoC Inspector General to William Pepper letter concerning NIST WTC 7 report structural feature omissions

Attached is the initial response received on Jan. 14, 2014 from the U.S. Department of Commerce Inspector General’s office regarding the complaint letter sent by attorney Dr. William Pepper on Dec. 12, 2013. The Inspector General has sent the information provided in the Pepper letter to NIST management for a response.

Individual citizens are encouraged to write or call the DoC Inspector General’s office themselves to let them know you are interested in this issue and to insist that the Inspector General ensure that the NIST be open and transparent here, and to also ensure that there is no conflict of interest. Anyone involved in the original report, which is now under scrutiny with allegations of impropriety, should be precluded from the response activity.

9/11 Free Fall 1/16/14: Tony Szamboti and Gerry B.-- Omissions in NIST's WTC 7 Report

Published on Jan 25, 2014

Tony Szamboti and Gerry B. return to discuss the letter that was recently sent to the Department of Commerce Inspector General on their behalf from attorney Dr. William Pepper regarding the incorrect data in NIST's report on WTC 7, legal steps that will have to be taken if the D.O.C. stonewalls, and how the audience can help spread the word about the game-changing information in that letter which renders NIST's WTC 7 collapse hypothesis impossible.

Targeting the President: Evidence of U.S. Government Training Exercises on 9/11

President Bush at the Booker Elementary School in Sarasota

A significant number of apparent terrorist incidents occurred on September 11, 2001, in which President Bush or locations associated with him, like the White House and Camp David, seemed to be the target. And yet for all these incidents, the apparent threat was subsequently claimed to be unfounded, perhaps having come about due to a misunderstanding. A possibility that has remained unexamined, however, is that the incidents were in fact scenarios in training exercises taking place that day.

It seems reasonable to assume that if the incidents were indeed exercise scenarios, the Secret Service, as the agency responsible for protecting the president and the White House, would have been participating in them. Alarmingly, though, the times at which some of the incidents occurred indicates that if they were scenarios in training exercises, these exercises were not canceled in response to the attacks on the World Trade Center and the Pentagon, but instead continued until well after the real-world crisis ended. If the Secret Service was indeed involved in exercises at the time of the 9/11 attacks, then, we surely need to consider what effect these exercises had on the agency's ability to respond to the attacks.

Below are descriptions of eight apparent terrorist incidents that occurred around the time of the 9/11 attacks, in which the president or a location associated with the president appeared to be the target. The first two incidents involved the president himself seeming to be the terrorists' target; the next three involved Air Force One, the president's plane, being the apparent target; and the final incidents involved the places where President Bush lived, such as the White House, being the apparent target.

Marcy Kaptur (D-OH) informed on C-SPAN about WTC7 omissions

Or fast forward to 41:01 in this video:
http://www.c-spanvideo.org/program/DOHon

    Transcript of the exchange:

Caller:

"Congress's refusal to investigate the evidence that Building 7 was brought down in a controlled demolition on 9/11 is based on its blind trust in NIST's WTC 7 report, which has now been found to contain incorrect data about the building design that, when corrected, renders NIST's fire collapse conclusion impossible. As appropriations committee member would you be willing to review the errors in NIST's report and help in seeking accountability from NIST for its errors considering that NIST has spent over 20 million dollars of taxpayers money to produce this erroneous report? "

Representative Marcy Kaptur:

"I would be more than happy to receive information from you sir and turn it over to those who have that particular agency under their jurisdiction. I have seen some of the callers who have called into programs and I think you're getting your message through, and as I said earlier, 'Truth will out'...sometime the government doesn't have all the facts, or there is an effort in some matters to not reveal the facts, for whatever reason, but ultimately if the American people are persistent the truth will be revealed. So you certainly can send me material and I will discuss it with those who are in charge of funding those agencies."

Complete 9/11 Timeline in Urgent Need of Donations

History Commons, the website that hosts the Complete 9/11 Timeline, is currently low on funds and urgently needs donations in order to meet its operations costs and develop its activities. In particular, History Commons is currently working on a new version of its crowdsource journalism app that should make it easy for people to collaborate on investigative efforts

The Complete 9/11 Timeline is a unique resource, which contains a huge amount of information relating to the 9/11 attacks. It includes over a thousand entries detailing the day of September 11, 2001, alone. It has the most detailed accounts of the numerous training exercises taking place on September 11 and the relevant training exercises held in the years leading up to 9/11. It has sections devoted to the official investigations of 9/11, such as the 9/11 Commission and the various investigations of the World Trade Center collapses, as well as much more.

Recent updates have included entries covering important topics such as the phone calls made by flight attendants Betty Ong and Amy Sweeney from the hijacked Flight 11; the conflicting orders and announcements that were made, regarding whether people should evacuate the World Trade Center; the actions of Laura Bush, the wife of President Bush, on September 11; and the actions of the Secret Service agents responsible for protecting Vice President Dick Cheney and his wife, Lynne Cheney, on September 11.

It is important that History Commons has the necessary funds to continue. If you would like to make a donation (by credit card, PayPal, or check), click here.
