Workers who suffered health problems long after the rescue and cleanup at the Ground Zero “pile” following the 9/11 attacks say they are frustrated by a “complex” claims process that is hindering their access a $4.3 billion fund set up for them – prompting officials to promise they’ll streamline the application process.
The fund, created under the 2011 James Zadroga 9/11 Health and Compensation Act, is earmarked for workers and volunteers whose symptoms remained dormant for years. So far, none of the money has been disbursed, as claimants struggle to prove their presence at the toxic site in the days and weeks following the attacks, which released a toxic stew of deadly chemicals. Successful applicants can get compensation for health care expenses and lost wages.

Yesterday patriots and proud Americans joined Robert and me at CPAC to attend the AFDI/SIOA Ground Zero mosque conference. It was the most difficult and heartwrenching event I have put together in all my years in this fight.

Tracinski has a great column on great American Larry Silverstein’s Freedom Tower going up as we speak at Ground Zero. Robert Tracinski is the editor of the must read TIA Daily.
I want to emphasize again what a non-story the Ground Zero Mosque will probably turn out to be. I’ve thought this ever since I realized how little money is actually behind the project. David Frum is not my favorite conservative commentator—he’s a squishy welfare-state “moderate”—but he does us a good service by laying out clearly who owns the property, who is behind the project, and the fact that they don’t appear to have anything near the $100 million required to build it.

Pamela Geller Featured Piece, Big Journalism: The Ground Zero Mosque War in the Information Battlespace

Countering the Lies of the MSM: The Ground Zero Mosque War in the Information Battlespace Pamela Geller, Big Journalism.
Tens of thousands attended the Rally of Remembrance for the 9/11 victims and against the Ground Zero mega-mosque on Saturday. The crowd was so large, it stretched as far as the eye could see; you could not see the horizon from our stage.
Yet AP reported that the pro-mosque counter-demonstration drew around a thousand “activists,” while “a smaller group of opponents rallied nearby, chanting, ‘USA, USA.’” The New York Post was only marginally more honest, numbering our rally attendees at 2,500: “The estimated 3,000 pro-mosque demonstrators outnumbered the mosque opponents by about 500.”
New York 1 did a story on the rallies, but only showed footage of the pro-mosque rally. The Post likewise only published pictures of the pro-mosque rally. AP ran an aerial photo of the rally, but one that was so poorly framed that one-third of it was dominated by a large gray building, and the crowd was cut off on the other side.

“We should also examine the foreign policies of the the U.S. to make sure that we occupy the moral high ground in these conflicts. In particular, we have to examine some of the root causes of this terrorist activity.” then State Senator Obama post 911 attack remarks
Obama came out for the Islamic supremacist mosque at the hallowed ground of 911 attack. He has, in effect, sided with the Islamic jihadists and told the ummah (at an Iftar dinner on the third night of Ramadan, of course) that he believes in and supports a triumphal mosque on the cherished site of Islamic conquest.

Read in full my oped in today’s American Thinker on NY Gubernatorial candidate Carl Paladino. And remember to mark your calenders for our next solemn protest against the Ground Zero mega mosque on September 11th. We will rally on September 11th, one year to the day before Islamic supremacists intend to open the mosque: September 11, 2011.
The Man Who Would Stop the Ground Zero Mosque Pamela Geller, American Thinker“As Governor,” Paladino said Wednesday in a radio ad, “I will use the power of eminent domain to stop this mosque and make the site a war memorial instead of a monument to those who attacked our country.”I like this guy. I really like this guy. If the Supreme Court could rule, in the notorious 2005 decision Kelo v. City of New London, that the government could seize private property for a private developer and then never develop the property, surely Americans should be able to use eminent domain to designate the Burlington Coat Factory building a war memorial.

A screenshot of the Perdana page on the Imam Feisal Abdul Rauf. Perdana is the single largest funder of the IHH jihad warship convoy (aka flotilla): Imam Rauf is a prominent figure in this hate group and terror sponsor. He is ranked second, right behind Mahathir Mohammed, the notorious Jew hater from Malaysia who famously said: “Jews control the world by proxy”.”
Too much has been exposed about Imam Rauf’s deceit, terror ties and real agenda, with much still to be revealed. And so the morphing mosque narrative is taking on a new direction. I debate these shadowy figures, and the narrative changes everyday.

Workers at the World Trade Center were stunned this week when they discovered the fully-intact bottom of a wooden ship, more than twenty feet below ground. Archeologists raced to the site of the find, roughly fifty yards from the spot where the South Tower of the World Trade Center once stood in Lower Manhattan.

New York politicians are bending over backwards, violating protocol, to build a mega mosque at Ground Zero. In warped speed they are ramming it through, removing every obstacle to expedite the process and erect a triumphal mosque at Ground Zero in time for it to meet its stated opening date, the tenth anniversary of September 11th. Why? Would they do this for a church? A synagogue? This is an outrage ………….
Last night, on less than a week and a half’s notice (at a time when most people who care are not even around), the Lower Manhattan Community Board 1 (“LMCB”) Landmark Commission (“LMCBLC”) held its meeting to consider the landmark status of 45-47 Park Place (the site of the proposed 911 mega mosque). Refusing to wait until the entire board could meet, seven board members voted unanimously to deny landmark status to the Burlington Coat Factory building, removing another obstacle to Imam Feisal Abdul Rauf’s supremacist, triumphal mosque.
One journalist noted that the “CB1 Landmarks committee, which is a stickler for details when someone wants to install new windows or awnings, voted to recommend to the NYC Landmarks Preservation Commission that landmark status not be given to the two antique buildings on Park Place that the owner wants to tear down to build the mega-mosque at Ground Zero.”

Most Americans Polled say 911 Mosque “disrespectful to the victims”
A national study conducted by Mediacurves.com asked about American opinions regarding plans to build a mosque and Islamic community center near “Ground Zero” of the World Trade Center attacks. Results found that Republicans were the least favorable of plans to build the mosque, with the majority of Republicans (63%) reporting that it was “not at all appropriate.” Also, 37% of Democrats and 39% of Independents indicated that the plans were “not at all inappropriate.” The majority of all political parties reported that it was disrespectful to the victims of the World Trade Center attacks to build a mosque near ground zero.
