New York Dem on rampage after GOP blocks help for 9/11 heroes

groundzeroseptember911nycnewyorkflag New York Dem on rampage after GOP blocks help for 9/11 heroesAfter days of political trickery by both Republicans and Democrats, Congressman Anthony Weiner (D-NY) got mad as hell and just couldn’t take it anymore.

And so began the shouting.

On Thursday night, the House voted down the James Zadroga 9/11 Health and Compensation Act of 2010, which would have provided over $7 billion in health benefits to 9/11 first responders, among other actions.

Democrats overwhelmingly supported the act, but Republicans did not. In a vote on the 29th, it failed to attain a two-thirds majority by a mere 35 votes, clocking in with 255 in favor and 159 opposed. Just 12 Republicans voted for the act.

In the days prior, House GOP leadership tried to attach an amendment that would block illegal immigrants from receiving any of the aid, hoping to create a Catch-22 for Democrats who’d be forced to anger their Hispanic constituencies by voting in favor.

Democrats instead responded in-kind, by invoking a suspension of the rules and disallowing any amendments to the bill; their goal being a straight up-or-down vote as the act was written, essentially turning Republicans’ tack against them.

Unfortunately, the suspension of the rules also mandated that the House clear a two-thirds majority: something Democrats do not possess, but should have been able to carry on this bill in particular.

With little dissent, Republicans proceeded to level a unified opposition, effectively denying much-needed medical care for 9/11 heroes.

“It’s Republicans wrapping their arms around Republicans, rather than doing the right thing on behalf of the heroes!” Weiner belted, verbally assaulting his “cowardly” colleagues for standing on “procedure” over “doing the right thing.”

“It is a shame! A shame!” he cried. “If you believe this is a bad idea, to provide health care, then vote no! But don’t give me the cowardly view that, oh, if it was a different procedure …”

Voices began to echo from Republican aisles.

“The gentleman will observe regular order and sit down!” Weiner shouted. “I will not! The gentleman will sit! The gentleman is correct in sitting!”

Appearing on Fox News the next day, Representatives Weiner and New York Republican Peter King were eager to point fingers, but Weiner’s rage still managed to supersede his critic.

“With a simple majority, it goes through!” the network’s host said.

“But they didn’t have the guts to vote on it,” King replied.

“Yes, yes, my influential friend Peter,” Weiner said. “Eighteen switches and it would have passed. Did you do that? Oh no. Take a look at his floor speech last night. […] It’s one minute or thirty seconds talking about how he likes the bill and a minute or a minute and a half like he did today, railing about the procedure.”

Cutting off his colleagues’ attempted interruption, Weiner jeered: “Stop whining and get the bill passed!”

“I got 94 percent of my colleagues,” the New York Democrat concluded. “What percent did you get? How’s that cracker-jack Peter King whip organization working out?”

According to a bill summary, the James Zadroga 9/11 Health and Compensation Act of 2009 would provide:

(1) medical monitoring and treatment benefits to eligible emergency responders and recovery and cleanup workers who responded to the World Trade Center terrorist attacks on September 11, 2001; and
(2) initial health evaluation, monitoring, and treatment benefits to residents and other building occupants and area workers who were directly impacted and adversely affected by such attacks. Requires the WTC program administrator to:
(1) implement a quality assurance program;
(2) establish the WTC Health Program Scientific/Technical Advisory Committee;
(3) establish the WTC Responders Steering Committee and the WTC Community Program Steering Committee;
(4) provide for education and outreach on services under the WTC program;
(5) provide for the uniform collection of data related to WTC-related health conditions;
(6) conduct research on physical and mental health conditions that may be related to the September 11 terrorist attacks; and
(7) extend and expand arrangements with the New York City Department of Health and Mental Hygiene to provide for the World Trade Center Health Registry. Authorizes the administrator to make grants to the Department to address mental health needs relating to the terrorist attacks.Amends the Air Transportation Safety and System Stabilization Act to:
(1) make individuals eligible for compensation under the September 11 Victim Compensation Fund of 2001 for harm as a result of debris removal; and
(2) extend the deadline for making a claim for compensation.

Support #altnews & keep Dark Politricks alive

Remember I told you over 5 years ago that they would be trying to shut down sites and YouTube channels that are not promoting the "Official" view. Well it's all happening now big time. Peoples Channels get no money from YouTube any more and Google is being fishy with their AdSense giving money for some clicks but not others. The time is here, it's not "Obama's Internet Cut Off Switch" it's "Trumps Sell Everyones Internet Dirty Laundry Garage Sale". This site must be on some list at GCHQ/NSA as my AdSense revenue which I rely on has gone down by a third. Either people are not helping out by visiting sponsors sanymore or I am being blackballed like many YouTube sites.

It's not just Google/YouTube defunding altenative chanels (mine was shut), but Facebook is also removing content, shutting pages, profiles and groups and removing funds from #altnews that way as well. I was recently kicked off FB and had a page "unpublished" with no reason given. If you don't know already all Facebooks Private Messages and Secret Groups are still analysed and checked for words related to drugs, sex, war etc against their own TOS. Personally I know there are undercover Irish police moving from group to group cloning peoples accounts and getting people booted. Worse than that I know some people in prison now for the content they had on their "secret private group". Use Telegrams secret chat mode to chat on, or if you prefer Wickr. If you really need to, buy a dumb phone with nothing for the NSA/GCHQ to hack into. Ensure it has no GPS tracking on it and that the battery can be removed. These are usually built for old people to get used to technology storing only a set of numbers to call. However they have no games, applications to install or other ways people can exploit the computer tracking device you carry round with you most of the day - your smart phone. If you are paranoid ensure that you can remove the battery when travelling around and do so to prevent GPS tracking or phone mast triangulation. Even with your phone in Flight mode or turned off, it can be turned on remotely and any features like front or back cameras, microphones and keylogging software can be installed to trace you.

So if your not supporting this site already which brings you news from the Left to the Right (really the same war mongering rubbish) then I could REALLY do with some..

Even if it's just £5 or tick the monthly subscription box and throw a few pound my way each month, it will be much appreciated. Read on to find out why.


Any support to keep this site would be appreciated. You could set up a monthly subscription for £2 like some people do or you could pay a one off donation as a gift.
I am not asking you to pay me for other people's articles, this is a clearing house as well as place to put my own views out into the world. I am asking for help to write more articles like my recent false flag gas attack to get WWIII started in Syria, and Trump away from Putin. Hopefully a few missiles won't mean a WikiLeaks release of that infamous video Trump apparently made in a Russian bedroom with Prostitutes. Also please note that this article was written just an hour after the papers came out, and I always come back and update them.

If you want to read JUST my own articles then use the top menu I have written hundreds of articles for this site and I host numerous amounts of material that has seen me the victim of hacks, DOS plus I have been kicked off multiple hosting companies, free blogging sites, and I have even had threats to cease and desist from the US armed forces. Therefore I have to pay for my own server which is NOT cheap. The more people who read these article on this site the more it costs me so some support would be much appreciated.

I have backups of removed reports shown, then taken down after pressure, that show collusion between nations and the media. I have the full redacted 28/29 pages from the 9.11 commission on the site which seems to have been forgotten about as we help Saudi Arabia bomb Yemeni kids hiding in the rubble with white phosphorus, an illegal weaapon. One that the Israeli's even used when they bombed the UN compound in Gaza during Operation Cast Lead. We complain about Syrian troops (US Controlled ISIS) using chemical weapons to kill "beautiful babies". I suppose all those babies we kill in Iraq, Yemen, Somalia and Syria are just not beautiful enough for Trumps beautiful baby ratio. Plus we kill about 100 times as many as ISIS or the Syrian army have managed by a factor of about 1000 to 1.

I also have a backup of the FOX News series that looked into Israeli connections to 9.11. Obviously FOX removed that as soon as AIPAC, ADL and the rest of the Hasbra brigade protested.

I also have a copy of the the original Liberal Democrats Freedom Bill which was quickly and quietly removed from their site once they enacted and replaced with some watered down rubbish instead once they got into power. No change to police tactics, protesting or our unfair extradition treaty with the USA but we did get a stop to being clamped on private land instead of the mny great ideas in the original.

So ANY support to keep this site running would be much appreciated! I don't have much money after leaving my job and it is a choice between shutting the server or selling the domain or paying a lot of money just so I can show this material.

Material like the FSB Bombings that put Putin in power or the Google no 1 spot when you search for protecting yourself from UK Police with "how to give a no comment interview". If you see any adverts that interest you then please visit them as it helps me without you even needing to give me any money. A few clicks per visit is all it takes to help keep the servers running and tag any tweets with alternative news from the mainstream with the #altnews hashtag I created to keep it alive!

However if you don't want to use the very obvious and cost free ways (to you) to help the site and keep me writing for it then please consider making a small donation. Especially if you have a few quid sitting in your PayPal account doing nothing useful. Why not do a monthly subscription for less money instead. Will you really notice £5 a month?
