House Passes $70 Million For 9/11 Health Care

http://www.r8ny.com/node/146137

July 24th, 2009

Washington, D.C. – Representatives Carolyn Maloney (D-NY), Jerrold Nadler (D-NY), and Michael McMahon (D-NY) today applauded the House passage of $70,723,000 in funding for the World Trade Center Health Programs for Fiscal Year 2010. The funding was included in the FY2010
Labor and Health and Human Services Appropriations Bill, which passed the House today. The lawmakers, along with Rep. Peter King (R-NY), are sponsors of the 9/11 Health and
Compensation Act (H.R. 847), which would provide long-term, comprehensive health care and compensation for those sickened or injured in the aftermath of 9/11.

“The heroes and heroines of 9/11 deserve a helping hand from the federal government –it’s the least we can do as a grateful nation. This $70 million in federal funding will keep the doors of 9/11 health clinics open until we pass comprehensive 9/11 health legislation, hopefully by the eighth anniversary of the attacks,” said Rep. Maloney. “I thank President Obama and my colleagues in the House for their continued support of the men and women who came to the aid of the country after 9/11.”

Ottawa 9/11 Truth July 11th Truth Action - Hope Beach Volleyball Tournament

Ottawa 9/11 Truth participated in the Hope Beach Volleyball tournament on July 11th,2009 which coincided with our 11th of Every Month truth action. We handed out DVDs to bring awareness regarding the other side of the story of 9/11 and had fun doing it. It was a good way of bringing 9/11 truth to the citizens of Ottawa in a positive fashion. We encountered many Canadians who were largely unaware of this information due to the mainstream media cover up. Hopefully we prompted them to investigate further into the events of 9/11 and the direction their country is headed with our role in the War on Terror

WTC-fund 'vampire' stays on

WTC-fund 'vampire' stays on

By SUSAN EDELMAN

March 29, 2009 --

Christine LaSala, who announced she was quitting last year as head of the city's $1 billion fund for World Trade Center claims, quietly stayed at the helm -- but with a cut to her $350,000 pay, The Post has learned.

LaSala, president and CEO of WTC Captive Insurance Co., withdrew her resignation several months later after "voluntarily" slashing her salary to $234,500 in 2007, a spokeswoman said.

"She's like a vampire," a stunned congressional staffer said.

LaSala, 58, who also gets health coverage for herself and a daughter, according to her spokeswoman, remained "with the support" of the WTC Captive's board of directors, composed of city officials and others appointed by Mayor Bloomberg.

Study: 9/11 lung problems persist years later

By AMY WESTFELDT, Associated Press Writer, February 4, 2009

NEW YORK – Researchers tracking Sept. 11 responders who became ill after working at the World Trade Center site found many had lung problems years later in a study the authors said proves persistent illness in people exposed to toxic dust caused by the twin towers' collapse.

The study by the Mount Sinai Medical Center's medical monitoring program examined more than 3,000 responders between 2004 and 2007, repeating exams conducted between the middle of 2002 and 2004.

Slightly more than 24 percent of the patients had abnormal lung function, the study found. In the earlier examinations, about 28 percent of the patients had similar results.

"We know people we are following are still sick. It's confirming what we've been seeing clinically," said Dr. Jacqueline M. Moline, who treats ailing responders and co-authored the study.

9/11 Health Bill Reintroduced in Congress

Charges Dropped Against 9/11 Rescue Worker due to Hero Status

"McCormack toured the country with the now-iconic flag. He also became a frequently quoted critic of the government, suggesting that the 9/11 attack might have been an "inside job" and comparing the Bush administration to Nazi Germany."

by Mark Fass
New York Law Journal

A Long Island judge has dismissed charges of driving under the influence and illegally possessing a weapon against a 9/11 rescue worker, citing the man's status as an "American hero."

"The Court notes with admiration the Defendant's lengthy service to his country and to his community, and acknowledges the many letters and documents concerning his outstanding service on September 11, 2001 and his injuries," District Court Judge Paul M. Hensley of Suffolk County wrote in People v. McCormack, 06SU51940.

"[T]he Court finds that the Defendant has demonstrated the existence of compelling factors, considerations or circumstances which show that his prosecution or conviction upon the accusatory instruments herein would constitute an injustice."

The evidence summarized below proves conclusively that 3 World Trade Center buildings collapsed on 9/11/2001 as the result of controlled demolitions. It makes no attempt to determine why, or to imply by whom. From a scientific standpoint, it is inadvisable to leap to conclusions because there are always scenarios we may not be prepared to imagine. In science, as in life, an open mind is a good thing. It is conceivable that there was a bio-threat airborne in the CIA undercover New York station in Building 7 capable of wiping out 20 million people if it wasn’t immediately neutralized by the use of Thermate. Although that is unlikely, it remains possible and therefore, scientifically, it stands as an unknown, as do many other unknowns.

Former Giants Coach Jim Fassell pledges $250,000 to 9/11 Charities

NEW YORK (AP) — Former New York Giants coach Jim Fassell announced Tuesday his plans to donate $250,000 to five organizations representing first responders and 9/11-related charities.

The Jim Fassel Foundation, set up in 2002 to support first responders and the families affected by the World Trade Center attacks, has raised more than $1.1 million in the seven years since September 11, 2001.

Fassel remembers exactly where he was when he first heard of the 9/11 attacks.

"I had the television on in my office when I first heard the news reports of a plane crashing into the World Trade Center," Fassel said. "A group of us ran up to the roof of Giants Stadium and could clearly see the smoke from the tower and ultimately the collapse of the first tower soon afterward."

"When I walked through the rubble of Ground Zero the following week and witnessed firsthand the full extent of the tragedy and the bravery and courage of so many people, I pledged that I'd never forget the events of that day, and I'd do what I could to help the people affected by it."

9-11 Truth March 10-11-08 Santa Monica Part 3 FIREFIGHTERS

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=E9lq6P9RrOg

This amazing march through Santa Monica found its way to Firestation A, where we paid tribute to the firefighters who died on 9-11, and to First Responders who are still dying today because our government lied to them about the horrendous quality of the air at ground zero, and because our government continues to ignore them.
