Thousands of Heroic 9/11 First Responders Will Likely Die an Early Death Because of a Deliberate Cover-Up by the Bush EPA

At Community Church in New York City on September 9, 2006, a group of 9/11first responders shared their experiences at ground zero and afterward.  

"We were also killed on 9/11. Avenge us,"  pleads former National Guard sargeant, David Miller. "We came to your rescue on 9/11. Now thousands of us and our families need you to come to ours."Heroic first responders are dying of toxic exposure at Ground Zero. Now they are asking the 9/11 Truth movement to wake up the rest of the country to the real terrorists of 9/11: the US government, with the complicity of media giants. Miller notes of those Americans who refuse to look at the truth, "I know something about sheep. Sheep never conceive that the man who fills their grain bins, but without any afterthought, one day starts cutting throats...and everytime 'Popular Mechanics' calls the people of this movement 'nuts', these propagandists, professional liars and tools, who cannot, by any stretch of the imagination, be called journalists, strike another nail into the coffin of another rescue worker."

In closing, Miller quotes a hero of his, Edward R. Murrow: "We must not confuse dissent with disloyalty. When the loyal opposition dies, I think the soul of America dies with it."  

Major Mike McCormick, volunteer and civil air patrol pilot, begins by addressing the assembled 9/11 Truth activists, "As I look out in the audience I do not see audience participants, but I see extended members ofthe 9/11 family." McCormick notes of 9/11 first responders, "There are hundreds and thousands of people that are now sick." and he declares, "The majority of us believe in a higher authority, of the goodness of man. Unfortunately, the people that are in office are scoundrels and they look at God as gold, oil, and drugs." McCormick adds, "There is actually $1 billion dollars in a fund for 9/11 responders.. Mayor Bloomberg has spent $40 million of that $1 billion dollars denying claims." 

McCormick  says further, "A month ago, I had gotten a report that was deemed "SECRET". It was the report from the Executive Office legal department to Christy Todd Whitman, advising her to downplay the severity of GroundZero...Now, Christy Todd Whitman, I'm happy to say, is going to have her day of reckoning... It is time for good Americans to take back this country...CIA, NSA,, you name the acronym, I would say a good 80% of allagencies involved [in 9/11] are Manchurian candidates. These are the people sworn to protect the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic, and the only thing Homeland Security does is decimate the United States Constitution...The Homeland Security Department, the only thing that they don't take care of, is the country's patriots.... Every single responder, police, fire, EMS, every volunteer, they are the Minutemen..The only thing these responders didn't have is a country that gave a shit."  

McCormick quotes Edmund Burke: "The only thing necessary for evil to triumph is for good people to stand by idly and do nothing. Your participation here, today, shows me they will not get away with it...[Bush] cons people into joining the military. ...he just changes the name of the mission from Enduring Freedom to Enduring Bullshit, or whatever it is..." Of Christy Todd Whitman, McCormick observes, "It is sure as hell she's going to be convicted of crimes against humanity, treason, just to name a few. However, if Bush is behind the catbird seat, the only thing he's going to do is pardon her. That can't happen. We cannot let it happen." Medic and former Air Force Special Operations for Search and Rescue expert, Kevin McPadden, observes of Ground Zero, "There was so much radiant heat...that' s not jet fuel that burns off 10 hours later, it's not any kindof incendiary...nothing was burning, no combustibles. This was chemicals, this was explosives." Mc Padden remembers taking a cigarette break after carrying three 250-pound women down 25 flights of stairs, when Mayor Bloomburg comes up to him and says, 'You know, you think you look cool with that cigarette in your mouth. But you look like a dirt bag.'" McCormick concludes, "This is a gross miscarriage of justice. And the government and the state are despicable. Our country has been taken over by these nasty corporate giants and they seem to have given our government HIV and us, in the Truth movement, we're the white blood cells. We're the ones holding it back. We're suffering from a bad infection."

"New York Stories: 9/11 First Responders"
Toxic conditions at ground zero, on 9/11 and long afterward, have had devastating physical and psychological effects on a category of persons known as "first responders". These are the people that showed up, some within minutes, some from across the country, and stayed for weeks and even months. At Community Church in New York City on September 9, 2006, a group of 9/11 first responders shared their experiences at ground zero and afterward. Though they were touted as heroes, they have been treated like poor servants. Presentations by National Guardsman, David Miller; former New York City police officer, Craig Bartmer; volunteer and civil air patrol pilot, Major Mike McCormick; and former Air Force Special Operations for Search and Rescue, Kevin McPadden.
