We've Already Had 5 Black Presidents

Allow Blocked content to see the video

We've already had at least five Black US Presidents, Jefferson, Jackson, Lincoln, Harding and Coolidge, according to Dr. Leroy Vaughn, MD, MBA.

In his book BLACK PEOPLE AND THEIR PLACE IN WORLD HISTORY, Dr. Vaughn covers this and other dynamic, historical facts about the contributions of Black People throughout time that can change the word from his-story to truth-story.

Stolen Election 2006?

It was recently reported that Karl Rove is confident about the elections next month. The only ways that could be true is if he knows the fix is in, like it was in the 2000, 2002 and 2004 elections. The only question is will it be enough of a fix.

The elections are like what my grandmother use to tell me about being Black. That I have to produce twice as much as any White person to get a quarter of the way, which means I have to produce eight times more just to break even.

For the 2006 US election to reflect the honest Will of the People, folks will have to vote in such great numbers that an election fix of 1 vote = 2 votes for the dominate party and 1 vote = 1/4 vote for the non-dominant party throws the corrupt out of office. I say in great numbers because the dead have a way of out-voting the living in some cities.

From what I read in the congressional report 'Preserving Democracy, What Went Wrong In Ohio,' I have no hope for a "fair election" at this time. I do have ample faith in future elections.

As Bill Maher pointed out, we can count a dollar down to the penny (fraction of a penny when buying gas), but we can't get an accurate vote count.

The government needs to learn how to use Microsoft Excel (or other universal spreadsheet program, simplified). Locked spread sheets with a person's vote, submitted on line with a follow though to the count, would clear up the situation quickly.

Libraries, with their many computers, can serve as voting places for a day (or better yet a week before plus election day) every two years to host elections for folks who do not have web access. This system would also bring more folks in touch with the opportunities to learn at their local libraries.

The system is broken beyond repair, and it's time to go back to the basics. WE HOLD THESE TRUTHS TO BE SELF EVIDENT. What’s true? What's real? What's helping us? What's hurting us? Somebody else knows how stupid it is that our leading industry is health care.

Though I am born and raised in the United States, over 50, and never been arrested, it's illegal for me to vote. I live in Arizona without papers other than my birth certificate so I've become less than human in the sight of the State of Arizona.

If the government has not made it illegal for you to vote, please vote based on the highest good for all concerned.

The 9/11 Death Toll Is Still Rising

World Trade Center Illness, sickness that comes from exposure to the toxic material from the WTC, is real.

Though the government turned off the death toll clock shortly after 9/11, many people are sick and dying from exposure to the toxic material from WTC 1, 2 and 7. The names of the people who are dying from WTC Illness over the next 10 years should be added to the annually read list of victims of 9/11. As I noted in an earlier post, not just the first responders are dying.

Remember the initial estimates that said 25,000 to 30,000 folks killed on 9/11. By the time World Trade Center Illness runs its course, initial death toll numbers could be accurate. I say that because the City reports that hundreds of thousands of people were exposed.

Despite what the government is saying, the toxic dust from the WTC did not stay in Lower Manhattan. The wind carried it much further than New York City. The EPA didn’t start testing for toxic material until September 14th, giving the dust 3 days to settle down.

The toxic soup that made up the dust from the WTC contained transformer oil contaminated with PCB's, polyvinyl, chloride, copper, furans, polybrominated diphenyl ethers, dioxins, asbestos, mercury from the computers and lights, thousands of gallons of jet fuel, and what the National Resources Defense Council - NRDC defined as “small hazardous waste generating entities.” Add to that an estimated 50,000 personal computers with four pounds of lead each, pulverized, and that is 200,000 pounds of lead released into the atmosphere."

It's way past time to tell the truth about the government's decision to put New York on lock down before World Trade Center 1, 2 & 7 were exploded. I write exploded because there was thermite found in the dust and all three structures were pulverized, not fallen or burned. As was the case in New Orleans during Katrina, the word "explosions" was frequently used by people who were present at the events.

From the EPA report that they said could not be quoted (so I removed the quotes): National Center for Environmental Assessment, Office of Research and Development, U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, October, 2002’s report; Exposure and Human Health Evaluation of Airborne Pollution from the World Trade Center Disaster.

The analysis in this report supports three general findings: 1) Persons exposed to the extremely high levels of ambient particulate matter and its components during the collapse of the World Trade Center towers and for several hours afterwards were likely to be at risk for immediate acute (and possibly chronic) respiratory and other types (e.g., cardiovascular) of symptoms. 2) The first measurements of some of the contaminants were on September 14, while other contaminants were not measured until September 23. Available data suggest that the concentrations within and near Ground Zero were likely to be highest in the few days following September 11. Because there are only limited data on these critical few days, exposures and potential health impacts cannot be evaluated with certainty for this time period. 3) Except for exposures on September 11 and possibly during the next few days, persons in the surrounding community were unlikely to suffer short-term or long-term adverse health effects caused by exposure to elevations in ambient air concentrations of the contaminants evaluated in this report.

These elevated concentrations were measured mostly within and near Ground Zero, and they lasted for one to three months after September 11. The monitoring data indicate that air concentrations decreased to background levels that are characteristic of pre-September 11 levels in the New York City metropolitan area by around January or February of 2002.

Ultimately, it will be difficult to ascertain with certainty what effects resulted when people were surrounded by initial clouds of dust, or were subsequently exposed to the elevated concentrations that are discussed in this report. Epidemiologic studies of the exposed populations that are being conducted by various agencies and institutions should provide a more scientifically robust evaluation for future evaluations of health effects.

George W. Alapas
Acting Director
National Center for Environmental Assessment

Rather than DO NOT QUOTE OR CITE, they should have been screaming the above words and evacuated the area.

It is not just the first responders who are suffering and dying. Living, working, visiting for a spell folks were also exposed, many chronically. Common sense says the wind would carry the dust to many places.

Was there any testing done to see if asbestos and other toxic material traveled beyond Lower Manhattan?

Given the dynamics of insurance, do those exposed have health options if they are among the 40 million or so uninsured in America?

Is the medical community ready to deal with folks exposed to the toxic dust?

Chronic exposure to toxic material can cause squamous cell cancer and other medical conditions. It takes 5-15 years to manifest and the reports of people dying are flooding in. There are many ways the problem of World Trade Center Illness is manifesting affecting respiratory, digestive and blood systems.

People ate, drank and breathed the dust which also included pulverized glass. This material can cause a whole host of medical problems, including death.

There is no shortage of medical literature regarding the results of exposure to toxic material. Yet, the government chose the strategy of study rather than inform folks how to take a pro-active role in protecting their health like get out of the area, hydrotherapy with distilled drinking water to help clean out the toxins and medical hemp to reduce stress, a major killer.

The incompetence, if not flat out cruelty of not providing respirators to the people in the area is criminal. Even when the President of the United States came and did his bullhorn speech, he didn’t share with the people on the pile the dangers in the dust, nor the importance of wearing respirators. Bush should have ordered the City evacuated, instead, the White House told the EPA to alter the reports. They didn’t even start testing for toxic material until the 14th.

After 5 years of "studying" the problem, in August, 2006, the City of New York released guidelines to the medical community for how to deal with WTC Illness. The report is from the New York City Department of Health and Mental Hygiene titled CLINICAL GUIDELINES FOR ADULTS EXPOSED TO THE WORLD TRADE CENTER DISASTER.

While the EPA and the City of New York are bantering blame about who was responsible for letting people be chronically exposed to a multitude of toxic substances, the result is no less devastating.

The guidelines, whose published section does not include footnotes, paints a grim picture:

Page 47:

"The World Trade Center (WTC) terrorist attack and its aftermath exposed hundreds of thousands of people to debris, dust, smoke, and fumes. Studies conducted after September 11, 2001, among rescue and clean-up workers, 1-4 office workers, 5 building evacuees,6 and residents of lower Manhattan 7-9 showed an increase in respiratory and other physical and mental health problems, including post-traumatic stress disorder.

Many New Yorkers have health problems that could be associated with – or made worse by – exposure to the attack and its aftermath. Primary care physicians need to know how to identify, evaluate, treat, and if necessary, refer these individuals to expert care."

Page 48


Physical Exposures

The collapse and burning of the WTC and neighboring buildings released a complex mixture of irritant dust, smoke, and gaseous materials. Pulverized concrete, glass, plastic, paper, and wood produced alkaline dust. The dust cloud also contained heavy metals, as well as asbestos and other substances that may be carcinogenic. In addition, smoke released from the persistent fires in the months that followed also contained hazardous and potentially carcinogenic substances.

Environmental test results showed that the composition of dust and smoke released into the air and deposited on indoor and outdoor surfaces varied by date and location.10 Individual exposure to contaminants was determined by duration, site, activities, and use of appropriate protective equipment. Health effects related to these exposures may also vary, depending on the intensity and duration of exposure as well as on underlying medical conditions, tobacco use, and individual susceptibility.

Although heavy metals were detected in the air and dust, clinical tests performed on specimens from more than 10,000 firefighters showed no clinically significant concentrations of mercury, lead, or beryllium.11 Heavy metals are usually cleared from the blood and urine within months of exposure."

Page 49:

Table 2. Potentially WTC-Associated Conditions

Inhalation or ingestion of WTC dust and fumes affected the mucous membranes of the nose, sinuses, pharynx, gastrointestinal (GI) tract, and respiratory tract.
The symptoms and signs of these conditions include:
• Sinus, nasal, and postnasal congestion
• Heartburn, hoarseness, and throat irritation
• Shortness of breath and wheezing
• Chronic cough

Some clinicians have described a syndrome consisting of a triad that is typified by:
• Upper airway cough syndrome (postnasal drip syndrome)
• Asthma/reactive airways dysfunction syndrome(RADS)
• Gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD)/laryngopharyngeal reflux disease (LPRD)

Page 51:

"Other Possibly Associated Pulmonary Conditions
Consult a WTC Medical Monitoring and Treatment Center (Resources) for further information about these and other medical problems currently under evaluation:
• Interstitial lung diseases
• Chronic bronchitis/non-asthmatic eosinophilic bronchitis
• Rare reports of pulmonary eosinophilic infiltrates,26 granulomatous pneumonitis,27 and bronchiolitis obliterans28
• Other lung diseases

Patients may also present with other as yet unexplained conditions that require additional diagnostic evaluation. Although the dust cloud contained heavy metals, there is no recognized need to perform blood or urine testing for heavy metals in the absence of specific indicative symptoms."

The guidelines are basically a shopping list for drugs that they disclaim in size 8 type, i.e.: "Use of brand names is for informational purposes only and does not imply endorsement by the New York City Department of Health and Mental Hygiene."

These 'guidelines' fall far short of what needs to be done now. They speak of managing symptoms rather than how to heal.

Here's my short list of what needs to be done now.

1. Demand unconditional screening and health care for all affected plus disability pay to cover living expenses. Many have lost their jobs over the last five years, are sick and without insurance. (#3 is how to pay for it).

2. Empower folks to use meditation, work with their Healer Within, hydrotherapy and/or medical hemp (marijuana) to manage and heal if possible. The only good news I found is the guidelines is that in the post 9/11 era, marijuana use is up. Since the problem is toxic material in one's body, cleaning out as much as possible (hydrotherapy - for drinking consider distilled water) and reducing stress (meditation, Healer Within and medical hemp) is beneficial. It's going to take a miracle to turn this situation around.

3. Legalize hemp, tax it at 20% to raise revenue to pay for the health care and other social problems. Since the hemp plant scrubs the air when growing, it can be an effective tool for helping folks by reducing pollutants in the air. It’s time Hemp the City.

4. Bring to justice those responsible for altering the EPA report that told people that the air was safe to breathe and the water safe to drink. It was not safe. The news a year ago said it was the White House that altered the reports.

The city was put on lock down before the buildings were exploded, with a military compliment.
People are dying as a result of both the City of New York and the U.S. government’s failed policy of lie and hope it gets better.

Demand to see the original, unaltered 9/11 air quality report from the EPA and other sources like the sewer air monitors at North River, Newton Creek, Red Hook, Owls Head and Port Richmond. They are suppose to be testing the air because the sewers are uncovered and in case someone throws something toxic into the sewers, we need to know.

5. Establish evacuation procedures that everyone knows about in the event of another emergency situation like the Christmas Tsunami of '04 or Katrina.

6. Work with and demand action from your elected and appointed officials. Even though the elections are rigged so that it's almost impossible to vote them out, there is still room to make them do the right thing and change the law to provide for WTC victims.

7. PRAY! if so inclined. I am. From what I've read, traditional medicine does not have a clue nor the resources to deal with what's going down. We have many healers, like Niro Markoff who, by working with her Healer Within, moved from HIV/Positive with ARC to 20 years later she is alive and still doing well. Or Louise Hay, who healed herself of cancer. Dr. Bernie Segal, Deepak Chopra, Dr. Wayne Dwyer and other healers who work with mind and Spirt to heal the body should be brought to the front of the conversation about "How To Heal World Trade Center Illness?"

Only The Truth Is True

I offer profound thanks to the media, who are beginning to ask the tough questions about the lies we have been exposed to. A special thanks to MSNBC's Keith Olbermann and crew. It's years past time to stand up to the Nazis in the White House.

I've had it with media that allows spin. Spin ain't nothin' but a lie, an illusion, a way to divert folks from the truth. To tell folks that spin is truth is just evil, i.e. WMD, stolen elections and the truth about what happened on 9/11.

It is time to apply the truth razor of only the truth, the verifiable from all angles truth, is true.

More than the first responders are in danger of World Trade Center Illness which put a lot of people at risk of getting squamous cell cancer.

The explosive thermite was found in the dust from the WTC. The hole in the Pentagon is too small for the plane reported to have hit it.

Our food and water supplies are poisoned with chemicals that cause cancer, diabetes and other illness.

Our mandated transportation fuel, oil, pollutes the air and is creating chaos in health and finances.

Our government is corrupt as it promotes business interests over the interests of the people, killing, when necessary, to promote business interests.

What is, is what we have created, allowed. We can do better than this.

How? Let’s start now.

Immediate, unconditional support needs to be offered to all exposed to WTC dust. Chronic exposure to toxic material increases the possibility of getting squamous cell cancer. Those prevention/treatment models, plus medical hemp and hydrotherapy should be available on demand. Legalize hemp, tax it at 20% to raise the funds and, with overflow, finance the solutions to other social problems.

It’s way past time to be real about who was behind 9/11. Demand to see the NTSB reports on the planes. Bring to justice those responsible for the crime. Replace them with a transparent government on a project manager whose goals are voted on in verifiable elections.

Remove toxic chemicals from food and redesign the distribution system, Microsoft Project Manager style redesign. Harvest ice bergs and use the water for irrigation and drinking. Demand testing for Mad Cow in American cattle.

Convert to hemp and other clean burning fuels for energy production. Hemp scrubs the air as it grows. Develop free energy, like hydro, magnetic and solar offers too.

I have lost my right to vote because to vote the law requires photo ID and I don’t have a photo ID. Since I can’t vote, for those who can, know that there are Mother Fuckin’ snakes in the Mother Fuckin’ U.S. Government. Demand clean elections with verifiable voting then vote them out. Tell them to use Microsoft’s Excel and Access for vote verification. Those programs have print features built in.

Peace and Prosperity for all.

Passenger's 9/11 Cell Phone Calls Scripted?

It’s years past time to honestly look at the evidence regarding 9/11 in general and the cell phone calls that were reported to have happened between passengers on the doomed planes and folks on the ground.

If you have not yet done so, please go to Jimmy Walker’s Reopen911 , Scholars For 9/11 Truth and see the video Loose Change, Second Edition. I’m keeping an open mind on the subject and to the best of my ability withholding judgment until all the facts are in, which they are not.

Based on available evidence, opportunity, motive and ability to pull off the crime, it is very possible that 9/11 was a scripted event, from the explosions in WTC 1, 2 & 7, down to the phone conversations from the planes. Check out Alex Jones’s great piece on cell phones and 9/11.

The cover-up had been going on a long time and most of the information is still not available, i.e. the NTSB not releasing any reports on why the planes crashed, let alone what was state of the art technology and policy regarding cell phones on 9/11/01.

Flight 93 black box under wraps
Sunday, November 04, 2001
By Jonathan D. Silver, Post-Gazette Staff Writer

Flight 93's crash is considered a criminal act, and that makes all the difference. The FBI is in charge of the investigation, and everything, even the most minute details, are being kept under strict lock and key. The only information that has emerged about the cockpit noises and conversations on the hijacked flight has been snippets of phrases or sounds provided to a few media outlets by anonymous sources. On the official information front, there has been a wall of silence. The FBI, Justice Department and Federal Aviation Administration are routinely rejecting Freedom of Information Act requests for details of the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks.

Former and current law enforcement officials said the government's decision to withhold the majority of the information compiled in the Flight 93 investigation makes perfect sense to them. "You don't really know until an investigation is completed how relevant ... certain information may be," said Mary Beth Buchanan, the U.S. attorney for the Western District of Pennsylvania. "So the need to maintain the secrecy of that information while the investigation is pending is greater than the public's need to know about it.""

How could the government have faked the calls?

The technology exists to replicate voices. All that is needed is a 10-15 minute audio sample and your voice can be replicated in any language. Responses can be programmed from a telemarketing style script.

The U.S. government has been mining phone conversations, so they had access to recording voices, conversation styles and emotional information during regular conversations.

A professor tested and found that the phone calls could not have been made at the altitudes and speeds reported by going up in planes at the speeds the 'hijacked' airliners were traveling.

Professor David Ray Griffin says the events were designed for maximum dramatic effect, i.e. the New Pearl Harbor.

Please consider: From Global Research

“More significantly, what this carefully drafted script fails to mention is that, given the prevailing technology in September 2001, it was extremely difficult, if not impossible, to place a wireless cell call from an aircraft traveling at high speed above 8000 feet:

"Wireless communications networks weren't designed for ground-to-air communication. Cellular experts privately admit that they're surprised the calls were able to be placed from the hijacked planes, and that they lasted as long as they did. They speculate that the only reason that the calls went through in the first place is that the aircraft were flying so close to the ground

Expert opinion within the wireless telecom industry casts serious doubt on "the findings" of the 9/11 Commission. According to Alexa Graf, a spokesman of AT&T, commenting in the immediate wake of the 9/11 attacks:

"it was almost a fluke that the [9/11] calls reached their destinations... From high altitudes, the call quality is not very good, and most callers will experience drops. Although calls are not reliable, callers can pick up and hold calls for a little while below a certain altitude"

From Want To Know

“ In my work as an interpreter, I have at times flown over 50,000 miles a year, yet have never seen or heard of someone making a cell phone call from a plane. Have any of you ever heard of this? Another unanswered question about 9/11”

From 9/11 Research

“Examining the distribution of the phone calls on the flights commandeered on 9/11/01 reveals an interesting pattern. There are reports of thirteen cell phone calls from Flight 93 passengers, but only zero or one from passengers on any of the other flights. If passengers on Flight 93 were able to complete so many cell phone calls, why were they so rare on the other flights?

Presumably the teams of four or five hijackers would have been too busy flying the airplanes to police passengers. The airphone calls attributed to Flight 11 attendants Betty Ong and Madeline Sweeney both went on for a number of minutes. ”


Proof is the acid test for truth. Where is the proof that the passenger's cell phone calls could have happened on 9/11? There is plenty of evidence they did not.

Add to that the acid tests of who benefited most from the commission of the

C R I M E,

and the answers match motive, opportunity, and ability to pull off the crime.

The 9/11 passenger’s cell phone calls; seizing all video at the Pentagon; no hijackers on autopsy or passenger lists; some of the hijackers surviving their 9/11 deaths in another land; the NTSB not releasing a report on what happened to any of the planes (go to the NTSB site and do an Aviation search for 9/11/01); the war games in place; the president saying that he saw the first plane hit the WTC before there was any footage released of the hit; no plane wreckage at the Pentagon or Pennsylvania; the Patriot Act in place ready to go; WTC 7 falling in it's footprint; and the toxic dust from the exploded, pulverized buildings (my first clue as I emailed folks to get out of NYC and was told the city was on lockdown – what were they trying to hide?); etc., are screaming to be addressed.

Yet, we get news of wars, elections and Tom Cruise's baby. I should be grateful it's not more of the Jackson/Peterson/Bryant/Schivo or other drama that is none of my business.

As I look at the picture of the hole in the Pentagon, and watch the World Trade Center turn to toxic dust, I ask why are the people in charge during that time still in office? How could they respond to a crime with wars? Where did the billions of dollars of gold go that was stored at the WTC? Why did the White House alter the EPA report and what was in the original report?

We are overcoming now.

Thursday, August 10, 2006


Many citizens were exposed to the dust of the WTC. No telling how far the toxins traveled.

On August 8, 2006 the New York Daily News reported: "We ought to provide testing for those who selflessly gave of themselves when New York and America needed them," added Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.).

The News called for lung screening as part of a campaign to help 12,000 ailing Ground Zero workers who have been stiffed by the city and have had to fight for disability pensions and medical care.

Mayor Bloomberg has promised to look into the reports but has refused to acknowledge that thousands of first responders were sickened - and at least four were killed - by toxins in The Pit.”


While I am eternally grateful that the issue of World Trade Center Illness is finally getting some attention, the conversation is still in a state of stupid.

So, here’s the message again.

The toxic dust did not remain in the site of the WTC, nor did it remain in lower Manhattan.

At least the people in the area are in danger of getting squamous cell cancer which comes from exposure to toxic chemicals. That’s what happened on 9/11. People were exposed to large quantities of toxic material.

Rather than evacuating the city when the buildings were hit, the city was put on lock down, so the people ate, drank and breathed the toxic dust.

All folks exposed need to have free access to testing and treatment paid for by the United States government, members of which are responsible for the events of 9/11...especially the altered EPA report. We must stop pretending not to know the problem’s scope.

Of course a hemp tax of 20% would more than pay for the program. Medical hemp has a radical impact on stress, which is a factor in cancer.


For example, the work of Niro Markoff, who healed herself of HIV/ARC 20 years ago, has excellent lessons on the subject of connecting with one's Healer Within. Her book WHY I SURVIVE AIDS is posted on line for free and available at Her next book should be released shortly.

Dr. Bernie Siegel was a cancer surgeon for over 20 years at Yale-New Haven Hospital. He is the author of LOVE, MEDICINE AND MIRACLES and PEACE. LOVE AND HEALING. Hay House’s founder, Louise Hay, author of YOU CAN HEAL YOUR LIFE is also a long term cancer remission victor. Deepak Chopra, Dr. Wayne Dwyer, Catherine Ponder, Mary Baker Eddie and others should be considered. Traditional medicine is not ready for this crisis.

I left New York in ’98 because the leadership was clearly stuck in stupid to the point of evil. That the mayor is trying to deny benefits to even the first responders, is a clue that nothing has changed.

Are Bush and Rice Lovers?

In modern times we seem to have two lovers, Dr. Rice and President Bush, running things. That Dr. Rice can take two weeks before she goes to the Middle East to work for an end to the war is a shame before the Lord. No wonder why shortly after she got there she was asked to leave. She did not have to wait to go over to participate. Web conferencing puts her at the table without having to get on a plane. Money is transfered electronically. Goods delivered with a purchase order.

Bush and Rice's priorities seems to be to each other, rather than the highest good for the nation or the world. I am deeply embarrassed by the cruel, evil style of government we have in America, declared by President Bush and executed by Secretary of State Dr. Condoleezza Rice.

Like what the great journalist Helen Thomas said about President Bush, Dr. Rice is the worst Secretary of State and National Security Advisor we have ever had. Maybe it's a three-some as the president said in Dr. Rice’s promotion to Secretary of State that both he and his wife love her.

“President Thanks Secretary of State Rice at Swearing-In Ceremony U.S. Department of State Washington, D.C.

THE PRESIDENT: Thank you all for coming. Laura and I are honored to be here. Over the past four years, America has benefited from the wise counsel of Dr. Condoleezza Rice and our family has been enriched by our friendship with this remarkable person. We love her -- I don't know if you're supposed to say that about the Secretary of State. (Laughter.)

Condi's appointment and confirmation of Secretary of State marks a remarkable transition in what is already a career of outstanding service and accomplishment."

He thinks we are all stupid. When I see them kiss I want to throw up.

Though dangerous, I still assume free speech so I ask without malice if they are lovers because it seems to me that's the only way she could keep her job with her performance in light of the Middle East, 9/11, terrorism, silence on Katrina and lies that got us into the war in Iraq.

If anyone else was National Security Advisor and 9/11 happened on our watch, we would expect to be fired. She was not.

If we lied about the reason to go to war, and thousands of people died as a result of that war, we would expect to be fired. Nope, not yet.

During Katrina, while children were dying in New Orleans, if we were caught shoe shopping by a citizen, rather than being vocal about the need to redirect life saving resources to the Gulf Coast, we would expect to be fired. She is still there.

If as Secretary of State, as the Middle East is exploding, even more than shown on the TV, and we stayed at the G 8, failing to evacuate the citizens caught in the war zones for more than a week, returned to the States, then went to New York to see when we could go over, we would expect to be fired.

And now, as people in the Middle East are being blown up and burned, because their salvation does not blend with her goals, she is given the green light to do what she wants. It's all right with her that people are being slaughtered in the streets because she wants a long term solution.

Based on results, it's O.K. with her the murder that is happening in the short term. It's 'justified'. Does the phrase 'game plan' mean it's a game?

Does she think the flowing blood is make-up?

As a Black woman I say that Dr. Rice should have one hand on her hip and one finger in the air demanding immediate solutions to stop the fighting.

If the whole area was prospered by the presence of Israel, there would be a fight to take it away. War is not the answer. Prosperity is.

Not a blind throwing of dollars, but creating financial systems that create the highest good for all concerned. Adequate computerization of the world population can help.

There is a difference between defending yourself and killing innocent souls in the drama. The killing of innocent souls is murder when done by a person. Despite the illusion, it's murder when done by governments in order to promote their interests. The word evil has been expanded.

Back to the point.

The only way we would still have our job in the light of equal performance to that of Dr. Rice, is if we were sleeping with the boss. Not even blackmail produces employment returns like this. It's way past time to clean house.

They were not elected in '04 either.

Was 9/11 A Lie?

Truth is a powerful healer.

The short answer is yes, the government lied about what really happened on 9/11. Now what?

Those responsible have successfully skirted the issue for years and got their wars and the rights of the American people. Fear is a powerful motivator when used properly.

Stay tuned.

The drama is about to be shaken at its core.

If you still think the government's version of what happened is true, take a day part and watch the following free, on line videos.

Niro Markoff 20 Years After AIDS Healing


The web is a powerful tool.

Niro Markoff healed herself by working with her Healer Within of HIV with ARC back in 1986. Almost two years after putting her book on line, I am happy to report that Niro found me and she is well, still training folks how to connect with their Healer Within.

Click Here To Contact Niro Via Email.

If results in healing counts for anything, this is a case worth revisiting.

Markoff''s book, telling both her story and how folks can connect with their Healer Within, is WHY I SURVIVE AIDS. The work was originally published by Simon & Schuster and is posted to read for free or available at .

Since there is little to no money to be made by medical special interests using her techniques (though sometimes the Healer Within does lead one to the right doctors) not much attention was paid to her work at the time, though it was powerful enough to be introduced into the public consciousness.

On 7/13/93, Markoff appeared on Donohue in a show called SHOCKING AIDS CASES DOCTORS - TS930722. She was also frequently featured in Parade Magazine as a long term AIDS survivor.

And the great healers of the day gave her ample praise:

Dr. Bernie Siegel was a cancer surgeon for over 20 years at Yale-New Haven Hospital. He is the author of LOVE, MEDICINE AND MIRACLES and PEACE. LOVE AND HEALING. He wrote “Niro has been one of my most powerful teachers. Her book can show all of us how to overcome adversity and survive any of life’s threats. I highly recommend it.” The late, great Dr. Elisabeth Kubler-Ross (The Wheel of Life) wrote in her foreward to Markoff’s book: “Niro’s story about her discovery of the AIDS disease as well as her struggle with it-step-by-step-is a light in the darkness for millions.” Hay House’s founder, Louise Hay, author of YOU CAN HEAL YOUR LIFE wrote “Niro is involved in some of the powerful healing work being done with AIDS. She is a beautiful woman whom I admire enormously.”

With what we now know about lobbyist purchasing government policy, that Markoff is not yet well known is no surprise. Through it all, with her champion spirit, she’s never given up on her mission to help heal the planet of AIDS and other life threatening dis-eases by working with one’s Healer Within.

Markoff’s work expands beyond AIDS in its effectiveness. Currently she is looking into healing World Trade Center Illness, an issue that is on its way to the front pages of every news operation in the world. The first responders have already begun to die. They were not the only ones exposed to the toxic material from the explosions of the WTC, nor did the dust stop at 14th Street in Manhattan, where she spent 3 months close to Ground Zero. She lost 3 people close to her on 9/11.

Markoff will be in New York at the end of July ’06, available for interviews, setting up workshops, and working on her new book.

Markoff can be contacted via email.

We are overcoming now.

The death toll as a result of 9/11 is increasing as first responders die and civilians develop significant health problem from exposure. When the towers fell and for a long time afterwards, the surrounding air was not safe to breathe and the water was not safe to drink. The EPA said the White House order the report changed.
The air, water, buildings, streets and parks were contaminated with a long list of toxins, and pulverized bodies. Rather than evacuate the area, the government chose to put Manhattan on lock down, with no way to escape. Military personnel took over the streets and the people cowered in shock as lies were crooned over their television sets.
The Bush and Guiliani administrations lied to the folks in New York, New Jersey and Connecticut and said the air was safe to breathe and the water safe to drink. Pieces of paper from the WTC were found on Long Island. Since paper traveled that far, how far could the dust have traveled?
Most folks already know that WTC 1, 2 and 7 were controlled demolitions. If you have any doubts about that reality, please check out the film Loose Change 2nd Edition by Korey Rowe, Dylan Avery and Jason Bermas, which uses 9/11 footage to demonstrate the who, what, when, where, and why of the ‘Greatest Lie Ever Told.’ You can view Loose Change 2nd Edition for free on line or order the DVD from their site.
The source of the WTC Blues is the understanding that thousands above the current death count are in danger from exposure to the dust from the WTC.
A great group on Yahoo is called Mothra-NYC and they posted the following articles that show the horror has begun, so I close with their posting and the hope that the information is passed on and solutions be brought forth to heal the problem. The first responders have already begun to die and exposed members in the general population are getting sicker.
Here’s their posting as it was presented, with links to the original articles.

9/11 Survivors' 'Clouded' Future

By Marsha Kranes, NY Post, April 8, 2006

Terrified people who fled the Twin Towers before they
collapsed on 9/11 - only to be caught in the massive
suffocating dust cloud afterward - are the hardest-hit
among survivors, a new federal health study has found.

Those trapped in the dust and debris cloud were nearly
three times more likely to experience respiratory
symptoms than other building survivors not bathed by
the cloud and at least twice as likely to experience
mental health problems, according to a survey of 8,500
survivors by the Centers for Disease Control.

"That was most surprising to us - the impact of the
dust cloud," noted Dr. Lorna Thorpe, deputy
commissioner of the city Health Department and head of
the World Trade Center Health Registry, which has been
tracking the health of more than 71,000 people who
worked at or were near Ground Zero on 9/11.

More than 60 percent of those who escaped the Twin
Towers were caught in the enveloping swirl of trade
center dust, according to the study.

"Building survivors overall had high levels of
respiratory symptoms and high levels of mental health
symptoms two or three years after the event, when we
interviewed them," Thorpe said.

The CDC report is based on interviews conducted
between September 2003 and November 2004 with 8,418
adults who fled the collapsed towers and more than 30
other buildings that were either leveled or damaged in
the terror strikes.

"These figures are high, they're concerning - we now
need to know if they're still persisting," said

"It's important to get an update on the current
physical and mental health status," said Thorpe.

To that end, a follow-up study will be conducted.

It will get under way later this month and will
include interviews with all 71,000 of the survivors on
the registry - including building employees, residents
of lower Manhattan, children who attended school in
the area, rescue and recovery workers, and volunteers.

It will be the largest public health registry in the
history of the United States, Thorpe said.

One of the study's overall findings was that more than
56 percent of all survivors said they had new or
worsening respiratory problems - including sinus
ailments, shortness of breath, or a persistent cough.

More than 20 percent reported suffering ailments such
as heartburn, indigestion and severe headaches.

Virtually all those in the study said they witnessed
at least three "events" likely to cause psychological

Those events included seeing one of the planes
crashing into the trade center, people jumping from
one of the towers, other people being killed or
injured, buildings collapsing, and survivors caught up
in the dust cloud.

More than 64 percent said they were depressed, anxious
or suffered from other emotional problems.

And 11 percent said they were in severe psychological
distress when they were interviewed for the study.

Rep. Jerrold Nadler (D-Manhattan) noted that the CDC's
report is "tragically no news at all to those who have
been dealing with this crisis since the day of the

Nadler called for "concrete action on two fronts."

"First, it's essential that we create and fund a
medical screening a treatment program to give aid to
survivors with physical and psychological symptoms, as
opposed to just keeping track of them.

"Second . . . the federal government absolutely must
undertake a serious, comprehensive, cleanup effort to
rid New York of the toxic World Trade Center dust that
still lurks in our buildings."


Most survivors of the World Trade Center terror
attacks suffered physical and mental health problems
that will require monitoring for years, a federal
health agency said yesterday.

Those caught in the clouds of dust and debris that
blanketed lower Manhattan when the buildings collapsed
were several times more likely than others who escaped
to suffer breathing problems or psychological trauma,
researchers at the U.S. Centers for Disease Control
and Prevention said.

"The trauma of being caught in the cloud itself, the
whole experience had an impact on their ...
psychological health later on," said Dr. Robert
Brackbill, a CDC doctor working with the World Trade
Center Health Registry, which has been tracking the
health of more than 71,000 people who worked at Ground
Zero or were in the area on Sept. 11, 2001.

The twin towers and 7 World Trade Center released
particles of concrete, glass, plastic and paper into
the air when they fell, and fires at the 16-acre site
burned for about three months, the CDC said.

"The long-term ramifications of these effects are
unknown," the agency said in a preliminary report.

The city Health Department interviewed 71,437 people
between Sept. 5, 2003, and Nov. 20, 2004, who had been
affected by the 9/11 attacks.

The CDC then sampled data from 8,418 people on the
registry - excluding those involved in rescue and
recovery efforts.

More than 64% of survivors said they were depressed,
anxious or had other emotional problems, and nearly
11% were in severe psychological distress at the time
of the interviews. The registry plans to launch
followup surveys of all of its registrants this month.


NEW YORK (AP) - A majority of survivors of the 2001
attacks that destroyed the World Trade Center suffered
from respiratory ailments and depression, anxiety and
other psychological problems up to three years later,
federal health officials said Friday.

The people who escaped from collapsed or damaged
buildings on Sept. 11, 2001, were several times as
likely to suffer from breathing problems or
psychological trauma if they were caught in the cloud
of trade center dust and debris that covered lower
Manhattan, researchers at the U.S. Centers for Disease
Control and Prevention said.

"The trauma of being caught in the cloud itself, the
whole experience had an impact on their ...
psychological health later on," said Dr. Robert M.
Brackbill, a CDC doctor working with the World Trade
Center Health Registry, which has been tracking the
health of more than 71,000 people who worked at ground
zero or were in the area on Sept. 11.

Friday's study drew from preliminary interviews with
8,418 adults in the registry who escaped from the twin
towers, the collapsed Seven World Trade Center and
more than 30 buildings that suffered extensive damage
on Sept. 11. More than 70 percent escaped from the
twin towers.

The interviews took place more than two years after
the attacks, between Sept. 5, 2003, and Nov. 20, 2004,
and did not involve medical examinations. Follow-up
surveys are planned this month.

"We are just beginning to learn about the health
effects of the worst day in New York City's history,"
said Daniel Slippen, a survivor of the attacks and a
member of the registry's community advisory board. "It
is critical to know whether these physical and mental
effects will continue, diminish or grow worse over

City officials in charge of the registry say it will
likely take 20 years or more to determine whether 9/11
exposure led to increased cancer deaths or illnesses
among survivors.

The study said more than six in 10 were caught in the
clouds of trade center dust that enveloped the area.
Those people were nearly three times as likely to have
respiratory problems, 40 percent more likely to
experience severe psychological problems and five
times more likely to report suffering a stroke,
Brackbill said.

More than 56 percent of the survivors said they had
new or worsening respiratory ailments, including sinus
problems, shortness of breath and a persistent cough.
More than 43 percent sustained a physical injury on
Sept. 11; the most common were eye injuries.

Almost all of the people studied witnessed at least
three events likely to cause psychological trauma,
such as the collapse of the towers, the deaths or
injuries of others or people jumping from the twin
towers, the study said.

More than 64 percent of the survivors said they were
depressed, anxious or had other emotional problems,
and nearly 11 percent were in severe psychological
distress at the time of their interview, the study


Survivors of the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks on New
York's World Trade Center, particularly those exposed
to dust from the towers' collapse, are suffering
worsening respiratory and psychological symptoms and
will be monitored for years, the U.S. Centers for
Disease Control and Prevention said in a study
released today.

About 62 percent of the survivors were enveloped in
dust, smoke and debris spewed into the air as the
buildings fell, the CDC said. Tracking their health
could lead to building designs that minimize injury
risks, the CDC said.

More than half of the survivors, about 57 percent,
reported new or worsening respiratory problems after
the attacks, and 21 percent have had severe headaches,
the CDC said, citing interviews with 8,418 adults who
were in or around the site.

``The long-term ramifications of these effects are
unknown,'' the CDC said in the report.

The collapse released particles of concrete, glass,
plastic and paper into the air, the CDC said in the
report. Fires at the 16-acre pile of rubble burned for
about 3 months, and many people inhaled the fumes when
they returned to work in lower Manhattan.

The CDC said it will periodically monitor the physical
and mental health of 71,437 people affected by the
attacks for 20 years as part of its World Trade Center
Health Registry program. About 64 percent of the
survivors experienced three or more psychologically
traumatizing events, the CDC said.

To contact the reporter on this story:


April 9, 2006 -- Sky-high toxic levels of potentially
deadly asbestos still cling to the fibers of this
ordinary white dress shirt - worn by a 9/11 volunteer
for two days at Ground Zero, a shocking analysis
sought by The Post reveals.

Community liaison Yehuda Kaploun volunteered at Ground
Zero for 48 hours immediately after the attack,
wearing the shirt as he watched good friend and
beloved Fire Department chaplain Mychal Judge die in a
building collapse.

The volunteer kept his contaminated shirt packed in a
sealed plastic bag until last week, when The Post sent
the garment to RJ Lee Group laboratories for testing.

Analyzed portions of his shirt collar reveal a
chilling concentration of chrysotile asbestos - 93,000
times higher than the average typically found in the
environment in U.S. cities. That appears to be even
higher than what the EPA said was found in the most
contaminated, blown-out building after 9/11.

While there appear to be no specific regulations for
asbestos levels on clothing, one lawyer for relief
workers called the sickly shirt's amount
"astronomically toxic."

It's the "high end of surface concentrations that you
would find anywhere," added Chuck Kraisinger, a senior
scientist for RJ Lee.

Testing also revealed the shirt was contaminated with
zinc, mercury, antimony, barium, chromium, cobalt,
copper, lead and molybdenum. Tons of the heavy metals
were pulverized and burned in the debris in fires that
raged for four months.

The test results are especially frightening in light
of last week's report by the Centers for Disease
Control that 62 percent of those caught in the massive
dust cloud suffered respiratory problems. Also, 46
percent of civilians living or working in the
immediate area but not caught in the cloud still
experienced respiratory problems - and 57 percent
reported new and worsening respiratory symptoms.

Making matters worse, Dr. Mark Rosen, chief of the
Division of Pulmonary and Critical Care Medicine at
Beth Israel Hospital, said that because it can take
decades for asbestos cancers to develop, "We just
won't know the effect [of Ground Zero exposure] for

About 400,000 tons of asbestos were released in the
World Trade Center collapse. David Worby, a lawyer for
7,300 rescue and recovery workers who inhaled the
smoke and dust at Ground Zero for months, called the
area "the worst toxic site ever.

"It's mind-boggling the poisons they made these people
work through," Worby said. "The amount of dioxins
there make Vietnam look like a kindergarten."

"It is an urgent situation. If the government does not
act . . . in terms of setting up [widespread] medical
testing . . . more people over the next few years will
die of toxic diseases than died on 9/11."

According to the Mesothelioma Resource Center,
"Asbestos becomes dangerous when it breaks into pieces
small enough to enter deep into the lungs. The longer
period of time that a person is exposed to asbestos
fibers, the higher the risk of developing lung disease
later in life."

The most common types of diseases caused by asbestos
exposure, according to the center, are mesothelioma,
either benign or malignant, cancer and asbestosis.

On 9/11, Kaploun was a 35-year-old liaison between the
Police and Fire departments and the Orthodox Jewish
community, as well as a part-time Hatzolah Ambulance
volunteer. He said he doesn't really know why he
tucked the shirt away two days after the terror

"But something told me that it was loaded with stuff -
and it goes to show you how very wrong these people
were whom we trusted," he said.

"I remember coming home, and you know what, I was
going to give the shirt to the cleaners, and then
somehow, for some reason, I didn't.

"But if my shirt and I can do something to help these
people who were there for weeks and months on end -
and if this is the kind of numbers needed that will
help and support their cases - then that's the

He said he is "somewhat" concerned about his own
health in the future.

"But so far, thank God, everything is good," he said.
"I've been checked and I check out OK - but I only
hope the government will do the right thing for all
the people who were there for an extended period of

"I was with government officials and we saw thousands
of people covered in this soot, and while we were
assured that preliminarily there was no danger,
obviously this is not the case."

Kaploun was there the first day of the attacks with
Judge, who perished in the collapse in front of
Kaploun's eyes.

"Father Judge always said to me, the son of a rabbi,
'When you're a member of the clergy you have to have
an easy smile.' And he always did. He was a good man."

Although Kaploun may have saved his shirt in honor of
the heroic efforts he saw that day, he hopes it may
ultimately turn out to be the very thing that will
help other 9/11 volunteers get help for illnesses they
develop in the future.
