First Responder - "We Were Nuked on 9-11"

January 1, 2015


"In November, 2001, the heat from the underground fires
were melting fireman's boots. My feet were hot as
 I walked across the rubble.

The term Ground Zero for the site of the
demolition of the World Trade Center
is apt. The term was also used for Hiroshima.

"Throughout my career I made arrests and I was never in trouble yet I knew in the back of my mind that this job would screw me. It did."

by "Joey Peeps"

from April 22, 2011

I laugh when all  these
firemen and cops are portrayed as heroes for responding to 9/11.

Consider me the anti-hero. I arrived at the WTC on the second week and I worked at the WTC and landfill until November.  I made the best of it and did what I had to do.

As an Italian American cop from Brooklyn I did my job-nothing more. I was out for me. Throughout my career I made arrests and I was never in trouble yet I knew in the back of my mind that this job would screw me. It did.

I am now sick like thousands of other first responders. The difference is that I'm not bellyaching about what an injustice was dealt to me.
Perhaps it is karma.

It is funny how the powers-that-be hide the truth right under your nose, in plain sight. In the early 40s the "Manhattan Project" was started. Years later we all knew about the devastation of the first A-bomb that was dropped on Hiroshima. It turns out  that no one could fathom that the government would build an Atom bomb right in downtown Manhattan.

Surely the Manhattan Project had to be in some far off, secretive place like Hanford,Washington, Oak Ridge, Tennessee, or Los Alamos, New Mexico . Well, the uranium and other elements were stored near Columbia University, West 20th Street and  the West Side Highway, and in the Woolworth Building  located at 233 Broadway.

We referred to the World Trade Center as being "Ground Zero."

Hmm....Remember I said "hiding in plain sight." "Ground zero" began with the Manhattan Project and the bombing of Japan. The term 'ground zero' was be used to designate the point on the ground directly beneath the point of detonation, or 'air zero.'

Ground Zero was the code name given to the spot chosen for the atomic bomb test at Trinity Site.


I found it strange that the Trade Center which was 110 floors was reduced to approximately six stories of tangled  steel girders. Where did all the materials go? Where were all the bodies? Where were all the porcelain bathroom fixtures? Dustified? Why was sand brought in by the truckload  and old dirt taken away?

911 Cut Column (2).jpgIn November, the heat from the underground fires were melting fire men's boots. My feet were hot as I walked across the rubble. Steam rose up from below as excavators removed debris. How do you have fires that continually burned at 2000 degrees, several stories below the debris in the absence of oxygen?

Christie Whitman of the EPA under orders from the White House stated the air was safe to breathe. Thousands of first responders are now sick as well as are downtown residents. Where is the EPA's air sampling report for radiation? Why was it never made public?

Why were the steel girders quickly brought to the Staten Island Landfill and sold without an investigation?. Should not a forensic investigation have been conducted on the steel and debris?

I was also a first responder to the WTC bombing in 1993. Former NYPD Chief of Department, Louis Anemone listed WTC Building 7 as a target for a second terrorist attack. Against both Anemone's  and  former Police Commissioner, Howard Safir's recommendations,  Mayor Guiliani placed the NYPD Emergency Center in Building 7.

He cited "walking distance" as a factor for placing the emergency command within walking distance of City Hall.  Why would any one in their right mind make their Emergency Center at the same location that had already been hit?

First responders are contracting cancers at an unprecedented rate compared to the public at large. Of interest many are rare blood cancers such as multiple myelomas, lymphomas, leukemia, esophageal, lung, gastric and kidney cancers.

First responders report developing  shortness of breathe, the infamous "WTC Cough" now termed  Reactive Airway Disease (RADS), Chronic Sinusitis,  GERD, esophagitis, and severe sleep problems such as Severe Obstructive Sleep Apnea, skin disorders, memory problems, depression, cognitive disorders, endocrine disorders, and general muscle pain deemed fibromyalgia. Interesting enough Gulf War veterans report experiencing severe headaches,joint pain, diarrhea,dizziness, memory problems, fatigue and skin rashes in addition to breathing and similar gastric problems that mimic 9/11 illness.


The events of 9/11  were orchestrated by members of our government. There are many examples of False Flag attacks.  There were many motives and both the government and private entities profited as detailed  previously.

It is becoming apparent that the government put out the official story which for a multitude of reasons does not stand up to scrutiny.  For those non-believers, the 9/11 Truth Movement was established which ushered in the theory of "controlled implosion."  Thermite was found. Then the DEW theory of "no planes" and directed energy weapons were espoused by Dr. Judy Woods.

I saw plane remains so I don't buy the "no plane theory." I wonder why out of four planes no black boxes were recovered from the planes. It does not make sense. [MAKOW- Because there were no planes. Those remains were probably planted.]

 Most people gave up by this time, but the more I looked at "dustification" I added up the evidence: trucks of sand being brought in, high heat melting firemen's boots, the disintegration of steel, porcelain fixtures and bodies, and the relation of 9/11 illness to Gulf War Syndrome and atomic attack symptoms.There is only one feasible answer.

The World Trade Center was brought down by  a controlled demolition that involved thermite and small, possibly suitcase nuclear weapons. The WTC   really is "Ground Zero," the site of an atomic blast.

The high heat fires were evidence of a nuclear "China Syndrome."Sand and copious amounts of water were used for radiation containment and the contaminated sand and structural steel girders were quickly carted off and disposed off.

The powers-that-be want to hide this fact because the American people will not stand for the fact that an American city was nuked. Many more first responders and Manhattan residents will be added to the 9-11 death toll in the years ahead.

Comments for "First Responder - "We Were Nuked on 9-11""

Hilary said (April 25, 2011):

I am a former R.E (Sapper) and trained Combat Engineer, which includes a qualification in the use of military explosives and hence my comments are based on experience as well as what has been thoroughly observed and scientifically hypothesised and concluded by Dr Wood in her committed research. This is not about what is popular for the various egos in 9/11 truth , but about what is right.

The first person to conclude that 9/11 was anything like a nuclear operation was again Dr Wood in 2007/2008 when she gave a presentation called 9/11 The New Hiroshima

In your article Joey Peeps writes:
In November, the heat from the underground fires were melting firemen's boots.

Not that I'm disagreeing with the words of someone who was there...however, Judy Wood says that any heat could not have been so bad as to melt boots due to the fact that diggers with hydraulic rams(which can't stand high heat) were operating on the surface of where the so-called fires were directly underneath. It is contestable that fires were indeed present on Ground Zero as only thermite could have melted the steel enough to warrant such fires. But, as thermite hasn't been proven scientifically as being responsible then we can discount the fires.

We are told in Dr Wood's evidence that soil is brought into GZ, not sand and it is not to dampen the heat, but to keep the toxic fumes from escaping. Witness reports from those living near to GZ three months after 9/11 talk of an awful penetrating smell, which really hurt when you breathed in...these are likely to be related to the fumes to which Dr Wood is referring.

If you haven't already taken the time to read her latest book and watch her presentation it may give you a clearer insight into the specifics to which I refer.
Of course, the bigger picture in all of this is that the technology (Tesla/Hutchison effect) which was very likely to have been used on 9/11 and its cover-up is why there is so much disinformation going on within the 9/11 truth movement. It's an energy cover-up! Unless of course there is just an anti-woman campaign going on to try and disprove any woman who has dared flex her brain and come up with the best scientific explanation of 9/11 to date and to be the bravest of all the truthers. Surely not!

One note; the picture with the angle cut beam in the background is a cropped shot, the full pic shows workers with acetaline torches cuttung the ruined structures apart.

Second note, I am a researcher convinced that it was indeed and inside job. But we must point out where things are "played" one side or another.

As far as the long comment by Christian Soderberg explaining why "the government didn't do it", it is lame for so many reasons it is hard to
begin, other than to say that anyone today that doesn't see that the so called "government" is simply a criminal syndicate, simply has no
grasp of reality.

Willem said (April 23, 2011):

Keep an eye on HAARP!

Sure a small nuclear device could have brought the towers down, but indeed, what about the radiation! Would they risk contaminate New York City, one of the important NWO centers?

Here is another theory of which Judy Wood spook: Energy Directed Weapons. HAARP, based on Tesla technology, would be a obvious option. It sends billions of watts to the ionosphere, than this beam bounces back to the earth, gather even more energy, and can, finally, be focused on a particular spot! Read this quote taken from a UN Special Committee on Decolonization:

The HAARP patent papers also stated that the invention could “simulate and perform the same function as performed by the detonation of a heavy type nuclear device”.

Michael said (April 23, 2011):

Hey Henry. I find it interesting that with all the examples showing that its was not Muslim terrorists who perpetrated 911, there is no mention of the dancing israelis who were there to "document the event". Nor any mention of the numerous israelis arrested with explosives in trucks and fake IDs. Israel is the one who totally benefits for this attack and there is ample evidence to prove they were behind it. Not the only ones involved, but behind it none the less. They have a history of false flag ops on its allies including the Lavon affair, the USS Liberty and the recent stealing of passports from Ireland Scotland and other European countries to for assassinations. Google the movie War By Deception on Google video because it will be gone on April 29th.

"Part of the 9/11 experiment was to determine the long term effects on the human population when an enhanced radiation nuclear device is detonated in a modern metropolis setting and the population (unknowing) carries on its activities as normal. "
"The deliberate contamination of New York City with radioactive fallout is far from being exceptional."
"To “The Powers That Be,” the administration and release of radioactive contamination against the population is routine. It is “Standard Operating Procedure.”

Consider who lives in Manhattan. Many of the most powerful people in the world. Who's headquartered near 'ground zero'? A short list includes the United Nations. The Council on Foreign Relations is headquartered in New York City. A third of CFR’s members reside in or around New York City. Not to mention Wall Street.

Tell us why the 'powers that be' irradiated themselves and their families, Dennis2. Not conjecture, just facts, as what I've just said is nothing but facts. As is Christian Soderberg's comments.

Dennis2 said (April 23, 2011):

Part of the 9/11 experiment was to determine the long term effects on the human population when an enhanced radiation nuclear device is detonated in a modern metropolis setting and the population (unknowing) carries on its activities as normal. An interesting exercise in applied experimental biology, following in a long line of non-consensual clandestine nuclear experiments on civilians and the military that the US has conducted since the 1940’s.

If we think that the US Military Industrial Complex would never commit such a crime against its own people, the deliberate and clandestine exposure of radioactivity and radiation, we’d be very mistaken. It is in fact, a routine practice. Since World War 2, the US government has deliberately exposed and contaminated large numbers of its citizens, both civilian and military, with some of the most dangerous and toxic substances known to man. It is now well known how thousands of American and British military personnel were ordered to walk towards the nuclear fireball after atomic weapons tests in New Mexico and Australia in the 1950’s and 60’s. The purpose was to see what effect the radiation would have on them. In the 1960’s, Plutonium was injected into pregnant women just to “see what would happen.” The deliberate contamination of New York City with radioactive fallout is far from being exceptional. It is simply one more in a long line of radiation contamination experiments stretching back for almost 70 years. To “The Powers That Be,” the administration and release of radioactive contamination against the population is routine. It is “Standard Operating Procedure.” -

Christian Soderberg said (April 23, 2011):

US Gov. was not playing a part in the 9/11 attacks, but it was orchestrated by a private entity that has infiltrated the US Gov and the US security apparatus, but it is wrong to say that US Gov. was involved was not..

..We will not find official Gov. papers authorizing 9/11. This was a private sector-false flag.

It is better not to focus on “who did it” but to get US Gov. to acknowledge the nano-thermite ..and then work from there

Trying to name the people behind 9/11 without solid proof, will actually help the criminals to discredit the “Truth Movement” ..Just focus on the controlled demolition of WTC and keep pushing this into their face

There was no nuclear devices at the WTC complex, or at least the evidence to back this theory up is very, very thin.

..and this is why we should focus ONLY to the nano-thermite cause of this we have undisputable physical proof ..thermite-composite bits/chips and iron-micro spheres (by-product of thermite-reaction) in the WTC remains/dust.

----Study: Scientists Discover Active Thermitic Material in WTC Dust----

“How do you have fires that continually burned at 2000 degrees, several stories below the debris in the absence of oxygen?”

Thermite-composite has all the oxygen it needs to burn in the metal oxide(s) in the mixture, so it can keep on reacting without outside source of oxygen. This is why thermite is used in underwater welding.

Conventional thermite produces temperatures around 2500 Celsius degrees, while nano-thermite can reach temps exceeding 3500 C degrees. ..there really is no need for nuke-reaction to keep pocket fires burning and metal in molten state for months after 9/11.

When heat-pockets are air tight and under large amount of debris, this also means that these pockets wont cool down that fast.

The pictorial/video evidence point to controlled demolition with conventional explosives and nano-thermite. From the many videos we can see light-flashes and columns being cut

..and hundreds of pressure-ejections racing on the walls of the Twin Towers

Paul said (April 23, 2011):

he Illuminati/NWO fancy themselves to be magicians, and -- like their theatrical, stage-performing counterparts -- they use misdirection piled upon misdirection piled upon misdirection to deceive and mislead their audience.

The planes are used to misdirect attention away from the bombs. The bombs are used to misdirect attention away from whatever other mechanism was used to bring down the towers,
whether it be nukes or DEW, or something else, and so on down the line.

The author bring up the phrase "Manhattan", and its connection to nuclear energy. In the high occult, the word "Manhattan" signifies the Egyptian "Man-Aton", or the human incarnation of the Sun god Aton. It can also signify man harnassing the (nuclear) power of the Sun and bringing it down to Earth (e.g., in the form of bombs), thus making of himself a "god"..

The recent movie "The Watchmen" played on this theme, where "Dr. Manhattan" plays the role of the (Jesus-like) Sun-god incarnate. The movie is filled to the brim with Egyptian themes and motifs, from the Pyramid Corporation to a Jesuit named Moloch to the final climax set in a re-creation of the Egyptian Temple of Karnak.

"I saw plane remains so I don't buy the "no plane theory." I wonder why out of four planes no black boxes were recovered from the planes. It does not make sense."

Another NYC cop chiming in. Tell me officer, how come these plane parts were not displayed? Would they not present a compelling case for the theory of Arab hijackers? The plane parts found on the sidewalk, of all places like Atta's passport, were of a much smaller plane. I agree your thesis of a nuke attack is the one that makes the most sense.

I, like countless of other people in NYC, saw actual channel 4 and channel 1 footage of the exploding building without any airplane before, during or after the explosion.

See for a small sampling.

Here's another question that's been baffling me since childhood: why is the largest police department in the world clueless about how NYC became the largest illegal drug market in the world?

"The World Trade Center was brought down by a controlled demolition that involved thermite and small, possibly suitcase nuclear weapons. The WTC really is "Ground Zero," the site of an atomic blast."

Okay, so we're back to the "satchel nuke" theory again. So I guess Saddam Hussein or Iran really did do it after all, with"suitcase nukes"

Here's his proof....."The high heat fires were evidence of a nuclear "China Syndrome."
So the Twin Towers nuclear reactor core went into meltdown? (see 'China Syndrome' )

I am not the Dan cited at the end of the article. I'm sick of the disinformation. The WTC was controlled demolition - the demolition system was installed during construction 1970-71. It's as simple as that.
