Herman Broch, the great Austrian writer, was asked in 1945, “so you think all Germans were Fascists? Nazis? He said no. “So?” He said, “Listen, there are Nazi’s, and then there are those who let them come to power, who stood by and let it happen.” And that includes all Europeans without exception. There is then a crime of INDIFERENCE that is even more fundamental because it is the condition that permits the Nazi crime. The Nazi crime itself was committed by the Nazis and part of the population of Germany and also of Europe, but only a part, yet the crime of INDIFERENCE that first authorized the Nazis to take power, and later to wield it in the known way, that is a general crime committed by the Europeans, the leaders and also the population. The crime of INDIFFERENCE consists of closing one’s eyes when criminal behavior begins”
Surely we can see that happening post 9-11. We should have seen it as far back as November 22, 1963, but earlier atrocities can be passed off or seen as anomalies. As we passed through phony wars in Viet Nam, Panama, Nicaragua, Iran, Iraq, Grenada, Afghanistan and many other covert wars, and then closed our eyes to our own state sponsored terrorism and false flag activities then at the same time we relinquished control of our money, land, food and safety, and most of all our Constitutional rights and still that wasn’t enough to satisfy our Fascist government, and so now they have declared war on US, their own people, we who are being suppressed, beaten down, marginalized, and attacked on every front of life in the United States, Still the INDIFFERENCE is deafening. Is this how we are to go down, without even a whimper? Let us go down if we must, kicking, scratching, biting and screaming. Let all who follow us know we were not INDIFFERENT.
Our mandate is clear, our position is recognized and just and we have in place the greatest protest and investigative venue imaginable, maybe the best in history, the 9-11 TRUTH MOVEMENT. We must redouble our efforts, begin local meet-ups, send representatives to regional meet-ups and finally engage a National meet-up in order to lay out a plan, direction and strategy. But the time is quickly passing us by and we can no longer afford to wait. Please respond to this and call for the first steps in the solution and avoid being part of the INDIFFERENCE population. Along the way we will wake them up too. But we must lead the way.

Tom Coburn To Block 9/11 Responders Bill

via Huffington Post :

Sen. Tom Coburn (R-Okla.) plans to block legislation that would provide additional aid to cover the health care costs of 9/11 first responders, one of the senator's aides told The Wall Street Journal Tuesday morning.

Senate Republicans have opposed the measure, also called the Zadroga bill, first over concerns that it would take precedence over a plan to extend the Bush tax cuts -- a deal that has since been reached -- and now due to issues with the cost-control measures and $7.4 billion cost of the legislation. That money would go toward covering the medical bills of 9/11 emergency workers who have suffered from health complications following the inhalation of toxic chemicals at Ground Zero.

The current offset proposal would enact three small taxes and fees that are meant to target companies that rely on outsourcing jobs in order to provide goods and services. Coburn said Tuesday, however, that he wants the offsets to come through spending cuts, and would prefer to see the legislation reach a floor vote through committee, rather than being fast-tracked, an action that has been taken to allow a vote on the bill to come before the end of the session.

Support for the measure had apparently been growing before Coburn's announcement. New York Democratic Senators Chuck Schumer and Kirsten Gillibrand, two of the bill's sponsors, both claimed Monday that the bill finally had the votes to pass. That contention appeared to be supported by the recent comments of a some of key Republicans who had encouraged a Senate détente in order to send the package through to the President.

On Tuesday, former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani became the latest name on that list.

"This should not be seen as a Democratic or Republican issue. It shouldn't even been seen as a fiscal issue. This is a matter of morality, it's a matter of obligation," Giuliani said on an appearance on a local Fox affiliate.

And last week, former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee said that "every Republican should vote for this bill."

Current New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg, an independent, also urged the Senate to reach an agreement, saying Monday that the "time for excuses is over."
