    Today is 9/11/2019 as we remember the tragic day that happened years ago, we remember the first responders who gave their lives to save others but this year we should honor the person who fought for first responders to get the benefits they needed!
    June 11, 2019 never forget this speech.

    Doesn’t he know that it was a false flag in the first place, so everyone who died and is sick now, is because of the same people brushing them off.

    Jon Stewart really stepped for these 911 first responders.Those in the hall behind him are broken people who do not deserve the short end of the stick by being pushed aside like trick of treaters.He really rubbed the members of Congresses noses in this problem and they really got the message

    Lacking in the discussion is what was in the dust that the 9/11 first responders breathed in that had such horrible health consequences. Scientists published finding in the dust a new high-tech super-explosive, nanothermate. It was designed for spraying onto surfaces and apparently sprayed under the World Trade Center Towers' flooring, which is what caused virtually all the 110 floors of concrete in each of the towers to turn into extremely fine dust rather than appear as chunks in the rubble. Also in the dust was asbestos, along with thousands of filing cabinets, computers, toilets, etc. and humans! that weren't in the rubble pile.
    Recently the Board of Fire Commissioners of the Franklin Square and Munson Fire District have sided with the Lawyers' Committee For 9/11 Inquiry petition to the United States Attorney for the Southern District of New York for a Grand Jury investigation of 9/11 crimes, with these words included in the fire fighters' resolution:
    ". . . the overwhelming evidence presented in said petition demonstrates beyond any doubt that pre-planted explosives and/or incendiaries - not just airplanes and the ensuing fires - caused the destruction of the three World Trade Center buildings, killing the vast majority of the victims who perished that day. . ." www.lawyerscommitteefor9-11inquiry.org/

    I watch this video every time I can't seem to figure out how Curropt and Broken our Government has become.
    And although I never really saw eye to eye with Jon on many Political issues.
    I've gained nothing but respect for the man after he did this.
    Because it's not Political.
    It's about right and Wrong.
    It's real. And from the Hart.
    And God Bless this man for using his voice to speak on behalf of many that were brushed aside with no voice.
    He's absolutely correct.
    And ever American should be Pissed off at these Buricrat's.
    For the Vast majority of us knew nothing about it until Jon and these folks went in front of Congress.
    Thanks MSM. I guess the Agenda on both sides to Divide us was more important than to inform us.
    I guess Jussie , and racebating along with a stupid politicized wall was more important than informing us about this disgrace that Buricrat's had no intention on correcting.
    But then again.
    I myself should have known.
    Because this is how the Buricrat's feel about our second responders that they send to fight wars as well.
    Defunding and politically hacking the VA .
    Meanwhile Many of my Brothers and Sisters who served as well couldn't get the proper treatment they needed.
    Getting ran around all over the place just to be told that the liability is with the VA .
    Then after establishing that.
    Having to wait up to 8 months to be seen.
    Seen by Dr's treat people as a case instead of a patient.
    And meanwhile... We wonder why so many end up either commiting suiside or Homeless after losing their families, because Dad is not able to be as we known him before. etc.
    Let's not forget about our Vietnam Vets as well .
    Very similar to our 9/11 responders .
    Breathing in crap.
    Being pushed aside.
    VA is useless.
    Most are too far gone in the head because PTSD wasn't a diagnosis back then and was not treated.
    They were passed on as being shell shocked.
    Even though PTSD would have been diagnosed if the Government gave a shit about them from the beginning.
    Many of these men developed lung Cancer.
    As my Good friend Jim did by breathing that shit in there.
    And even when he was at the beginning stages and having problems.
    He waited 9 Months to see a Dr. Through the VA.
    By then it was too late.
    He passed two years ago.
    Didn't even get to enjoy his retirement with his Grandchildren.
    So as these Buricrat's try and act as Humanetarians .
    Like they care about issues such as Poverty, health care, education, wages, and every other Political issue to use for election.
    I just want people to remember those that are out there that are suffering and losing everything.
    Those same people that risked their lives for others, and this Country.
    Because they Political hacks don't care about them.
    Nor do they want to have them pulled out from under the rug that they brushed them under.
    But they will sure act patriotic when there is another War or disaster to fight that benefits their employer.
    The Fed Reserve.
    Only creating future castaways and burdens once they are done with them.
    At least those who survive.

    I disagree a lot with John Stewart in general but this was brilliant. He didn't have to do this. He fought hard for what he thought was right and succeeded on behalf of his fellow New Yorkers.

    50 years from now, retarded people will be using their minds to post about how the system is broken because Congress didn't do something for some guys that politicians said they care about. It never strikes Americans that maybe their govt just doesn't really care. Certain demographics are going to vote a particular direction no matter what, so some shit you'll get to whenever the fuck you get to it. What the hell are the families of 1st responders gonna do, vote for a bunch of Black Far Leftists? Fuck outta here.

    I still remember there was a documentary where someone brought some first responders over to Canada and they were treated foc. After treatment, they hailed them as heroes and wished them well.
    Why I brought this up is because I would like to make a point that its extremely shameful for Americans when your own government won't even help.
