Study: 9/11-Related Lung Damage Long Lasting

(KTVU) – Most of the New York City firefighters and medics whose lungs were damaged by pulverized masonry and glass from the World Trade Center attacks are not improving as time goes by, according to a new study.

The results are based on breathing tests from nearly 11,000 firefighters who were at ground zero in first two weeks when the dust cloud was thickest. Of the firefighters who didn’t smoke, 13 percent were still scoring below normal up to seven years later, the study found. Continue reading

Advancing the Transatlantic Agenda – Dana Gabriel

Although there is a need for Canada to expand its trade horizons, the Comprehensive Economic and Trade Agreement (CETA) currently being negotiated with the European Union (EU) appears to be based on the flawed NAFTA model. Many view it as an opportunity to decrease its trade reliance on the U.S., but it could serve to accelerate the corporate takeover of the country. The deal would exceed NAFTA in its scope and with the third round of negotiations scheduled for April 19-23 in Ottawa, there are lingering concerns regarding its lack of transparency. A Canada-EU CETA could be used to expand NAFTA, strengthen U.S.-EU economic relations and further advance the transatlantic agenda. Continue reading

This Week in 9/11 (Mar 8 – Mar 14)

(NorCalTruth) – A summary of news relating to 9/11/01 – The week of March 8 through March 14, 2010. (Last week is here)

Bob McIlvaine is the father of Bobby McIlvaine, who was killed in the attacks of 9/11. Like many other family members, Mr. McIlvaine wants to know more about what took his son’s life on September 11th. He has launched a campaign called “Building What?!”, trying to educate the New York City council members on the collapse of World Trade Center #7. Building  #7 was a 47 story skyscraper that collapsed at 5:20 in the evening on September 11th, 2001. This building was not hit by a plane, yet it fell at close to gravity like speed and into its own footprint. The 9/11 Commission did not report about this building, leaving many wondering why. Bob McIlvaine would like all our help in educating the City Council of New York, please check out the page he has set up here.

A campaign in New Hampshire had successful results this week, this is taken from their website:

On March 9, 2010 voters in the town of Richmond, New Hampshire became the second town in the United States to pass a resolution calling upon Congress to open a new investigation into the events of September 11, 2001.

Building What?! Day 1

Fellow Advocates:
Today, March 15, 2010, we begin channeling the energy and strength of our movement into one voice to help the New York City Council become aware of the mysterious collapse of World Trade Center Building 7.

Believe it or not, many New York City officials are only vaguely aware that a third building collapsed on September 11th, if they are aware at all.  Our only purpose for contacting them is to politely ask that they take measures to investigate the collapse of World Trade Center Building 7. Continue reading

MSM: A leading Japanese politician espouses a 9/11 fantasy

(WashingtonPost) – YUKIHISA FUJITA is an influential member of the ruling Democratic Party of Japan. As chief of the DPJ’s international department and head of the Research Committee on Foreign Affairs in the upper house of Japan’s parliament, to which he was elected in 2007, he is a Brahmin in the foreign policy establishment of Washington’s most important East Asian ally. He also seems to think that America’s rendering of the events of Sept. 11, 2001, is a gigantic hoax. Continue reading

The Great Global Arms Bazaar – “The military industrial complex” is thriving

We all would do well to read or re-read perhaps, Anthony Sampson’s outstanding anatomical study or investigation into the international arms trade: “The Arms Bazaar”.

US and GB refuse discussion of Afghanistan’s opium problem during conference

Like every other Afghanistan conference, this latest held January 28 in London failed to address the country’s opium problem.
More than 70 countries and international organizations met in London and declared the goals of creating “a more stable and secure Afghanistan,” transferring power to the Afghan government, and reintegrating “those who renounce violence, cut links to terrorism and agree to work within the democratic process” into Afghan society.
While failing to touch upon one of the very most central issues affecting all the others- the opium production and the corruption that surrounds it. Continue reading

Video: Iran Sanctions Are a Precursor to War – Ron Paul

Last week the House overwhelmingly approved a measure to put a new round of sanctions on Iran. If this measure passes the Senate, the United States could no longer do business with anyone who sold refined petroleum products to Iran or helped them develop their ability to refine their own petroleum. The sad thing is that many of my colleagues voted for this measure because they felt it would deflect a military engagement with Iran. I would put the question to them, how would Congress react if another government threatened our critical trading partners in this way? Would we not view it as asking for war? Continue reading
