The Freedom Tower is out. One World Trade Center is in.
March. 27, 2009
NEW YORK - The Freedom Tower is out. One World Trade Center is in.
The agency that owns the site says that the signature 1,776-foot skyscraper replacing the towers destroyed on Sept. 11, 2001, will be known as One World Trade Center.
The building under construction at the site was named the Freedom Tower in the first master plan. Officials at the time said the tallest, most symbolic of five planned towers at the site would demonstrate the country's triumph over terrorism.
Port Authority of New York and New Jersey Chairman Anthony Coscia says the agency refers to the building as One World Trade Center. He says it's the building's legal name and "the one that's easiest for people to identify with."
"As we market the building, we will ensure that it is presented in the best possible way ” and 1 World Trade Center is the address that we're using," said Coscia.
"It's the one that is easiest for people to identify with ” and frankly, we've gotten a very interested and warm reception to it."
According to the New York Daily News, the name change for the 102-story, $3.1 billion skyscraper, unveiled after a PA board meeting, drew a sharp rebuke from former Gov. George Pataki, whose April 24, 2003, speech gave the building its brand.
"The Freedom Tower is not simply another piece of real estate and not just a name for marketing purposes," Pataki said.
"In design and name, it is symbolic of our commitment to rise above the attacks of Sept. 11. Where 1 and 2 World Trade Center once stood, there will be a memorial with two voids to honor the heroes we lost ” and, in my view, those addresses should never be used again."
The newspapers said the change came after board members voted to sign a 21-year lease deal with Vantone, a Chinese real estate giant, which will become the first commercial tenant at Ground Zero.
The negotiations with Vantone, which is closely affiliated with the Chinese Communist government, had nothing to do with the name change, Port Authority officials told the News, but was based primarily on bottom-line marketing considerations.
Ex-officer alleges prez used 'contrivance, concealment, dissembling and deceit' Link WorldNetDaily.com
An ex-military officer has raised the stakes in the ongoing dispute over Barack Obama's eligibility to be president, filing a criminal complaint against the "imposter" with the U.S. attorney's office for the Eastern District of Tennessee.
Retired U.S. Navy officer Walter Francis Fitzpatrick III, who has run a campaign for two decades to uncover and try to correct what he believes are criminal activities within the military, accused the president of "treason."
In his complaint addressed to Obama via U.S Attorney Russell Dedrick and Assistant U.S. Attorney Edward Schmutzer, Eastern District, Tennessee, Fitzpatrick wrote: "I have observed and extensively recorded invidious attacks by military-political aristocrats against the Constitution for twenty years.
"Now you have broken in and entered the White House by force of contrivance, concealment, conceit, dissembling, and deceit. Posing as an impostor president and commander in chief you have stripped civilian command and control over the military establishment."
He cited the deployment of "U.S. Army active duty combat troops into the small civilian community of Samson, Ala.," and said, "We come now to this reckoning. I accuse you and your military-political criminal assistants of TREASON. I name you and your military criminal associates as traitors. Your criminal ascension manifests a clear and present danger. You fundamentally changed our form of government. The Constitution no longer works.
"I identify you as a foreign born domestic enemy," he wrote.
The 1975 graduate of the U.S. Naval Academy in Annapolis told WND that a short time after his complaint was filed he was visited by two U.S. Secret Service agents, but they left after telling him they perceived no threat to the president in the document.
Officials with the Knoxville office of the Secret Service told WND the only person who could release information to the media was on vacation and they would not comment on the issue.
Likewise, officials with the U.S. attorney's office declined to respond to a WND request for a comment.
Fitzpatrick told WND the U.S. Justice Department needs to look into the issue.
WND reported this week that officials at the Justice Department, along with those at the Supreme Court, confirmed that documentation in a case challenging Obama's eligibility had arrived and was scheduled for an evaluation.
That case is being handled by California attorney Orly Taitz, who is working through her Defend Our Freedoms Foundation to handle several cases raising questions over Obama's qualification to be president under the Constitution's demand that the office be occupied only by a "natural born" citizen.
Taitz was informed by Karen Thornton of the Department of Justice that all of the case documents and filings have arrived and have been forwarded to the Office of Solicitor General Elena Kagan, including three dossiers.
Fitzpatrick said he has devoted his career fulltime to investigating issues in military justice and defending wrongly accused soldiers, sailors and Marines. His own career was torpedoed by a court-martial more than 20 years ago over his authorization of the use of a ship's fund to sent an officer to the funeral for his brother, who had been killed by terrorists.
Fitzpatrick's situation has been described not only on his own website but forum pages on other websites that deal with military issues.
He alleges his case was fabricated and even his signature was forged by officials connected to his case. He points to the fact that he ultimately retired and was awarded a military pension as support for his allegations.
But he says the new complaint against Obama should define the issue of the president's eligibility.
"They either have to come and get me or get Mr. Obama's eligibility proved. He has an officer in his military saying he is guilty of trespass on the Constitution," Fitzpatrick told WND.
"They can recall me against my will to active duty," he said. "I would refuse. It's an illegal order by a man who is not by commander in chief."
WND has reported on dozens of civil case legal challenges to Obama's status as a "natural born citizen." The Constitution, Article 2, Section 1, states, "No Person except a natural born Citizen, or a Citizen of the United States, at the time of the Adoption of this Constitution, shall be eligible to the Office of President."
Some of the legal challenges question whether he was actually born in Hawaii, as he insists. If he was born out of the country, Obama's American mother, the suits contend, was too young at the time of his birth to confer American citizenship to her son under the law at the time.
Other challenges have focused on Obama's citizenship through his father, a Kenyan subject to the jurisdiction of the United Kingdom at the time of his birth, thus making him a dual citizen. The cases contend the framers of the Constitution excluded dual citizens from qualifying as natural born.
Further, others question his citizenship by virtue of his attendance in Indonesian schools during his childhood and question on what passport did he travel to Pakistan three decades ago.
Adding fuel to the fire is Obama's persistent refusal to release documents that could provide answers. While his supporters cite an online version of a "Certification of Live Birth" from Hawaii, critics point out such documents actually were issued for children not born in the state.
Hawaiian officials have confirmed they have a birth certificate on file for Obama, but it cannot be released without his permission, and they have not revealed the information it contains.
John Eidsmoe, an expert on the U.S. Constitution working with the Foundation on Moral Law, has told WND a demand for verification of Obama's eligibility appears to be legitimate.
Eidsmoe said it's clear that Obama has something in the documentation of his history, including his birth certificate, college records and other documents that "he does not want the public to know."
Officials for the Obama campaign repeatedly have refused to comment on the questions, relenting only once to call the concerns "garbage."
Former Comptroller General for the United States says that he believes things can be turned around economically with a lot of work, or Plan B move to Vancouver.
GIVE Mandatory Service Act Strips First Amendment of Volunteers
(Thank's Jim for bringing this to our attention)...below this article see if your Rep voted yea or nay.
Tuesday, March 24, 2009
On March 18, Rep. George Miller, a Democrat from California, tacked an amendment on H.R. 1388, entitled œGenerations Invigorating Volunteerism and Education Act, or GIVE (to government), Obama™s plan to require mandatory service for all able young people. Miller™s amendment will œprohibit organizations from attempting to influence legislation; organize or engage in protests, petitions, boycotts, or strikes; and assist, promote, or deter union organizing, according to GovTrack.us, a site that tracks Congress.
In other words, Obama's volunteer corps act, passed by the House with a 321-105 margin and requiring the government to develop a plan for indentured servitude, would deny millions of people their right to oppose and organize against government legistation under the First Amendment. œThis is as close to a sedition act, a violation of 1st Amendment rights, as has been proposed in recent history. A basic right as a part of our natural, inalienable rights, is to resist government. Our founders not only knew it was a right but it was a responsibility. This legislation begins to break that down significantly, writes Gary Wood for the Examiner.
GIVE (up your rights) will conscript millions of young people, put them in uniforms and send them packing to 4-year œpublic service academies where they will be indoctrinated and trained to become œpublic sector leaders.
GIVE was passed by the House on March 18 by an overwhelming bipartisan vote of 321 to 105. œAt this moment of economic crisis, when so many people are in need of help and so much needs to be done, this could not be more urgent, said Obama. It is up to every one of us to do his or her small part to make the world a better place.
Under section 6104 of the bill, entitled œDuties, in subsection B6, the legislation states that a commission will be set up to investigate, œWhether a workable, fair, and reasonable mandatory service requirement for all able young people could be developed, and how such a requirement could be implemented in a manner that would strengthen the social fabric of the Nation and overcome civic challenges by bringing together people from diverse economic, ethnic, and educational backgrounds.
Section 120 of the bill addresses the œYouth Engagement Zone Program and states that œservice learning will be œa mandatory part of the curriculum in all of the secondary schools served by the local educational agency.
H.R. 1388 not only reauthorizes programs under the National and Community Service Act of 1990 and the Domestic Volunteer Service Act of 1973, but also includes œnew programs and studies and is expected to be funded with an allocation of $6 billion over the next five years, explains Bob Unruh for WND.
œMany, however, are raising concerns that the program, which is intended to include 250,000 ˜volunteers,™ is the beginning of what President Obama called his ˜National Civilian Security Force™ in a a speech last year in which he urged creating an organization as big and well-funded as the U.S. military. He has declined since then to elaborate, Unruh adds.
It appears Miller™s amendment is designed to strip members of this emerging œNational Civilian Security Force of their constitutional rights under the First Amendment.
The First Amendment reads as follows: œCongress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.
According to GovTrack.us, the addition of the Miller amendment to GIVE was agreed to by voice vote.
On March 23, a similar bill was passed by the Senate on a 74 to 14 vote. œFrom President Kennedy™s days to the creation of Americorps by then President Bill Clinton, the notion of public service has become a rallying cry. Tonight™s vote, propelled by President Obama™s urging of an expansion, would mean a growth in such work from 75,000 community service jobs to 250,000, reported the New York Times.
