    AT&T wireless customers throughout large parts of the country and in the state of Florida are unable to call 911 due to a technical problem. The cause of the problem is unknown but officials both locally and throughout the southeast are working to fix the issue with AT&T, which is one of the largest wireless carriers in the nation. Currently, AT&T says the problem is affecting customers in Florida, Georgia, Texas, Kentucky, Indiana and Tennessee, according to the Orange County officials. Each county has set up backup phone numbers so residents can reach first responders. In Orange County, residents needing...

According to the South Euclid Police Department, a 19-year-old man called just before 9 p.m. last Thursday, saying he swallowed a pregnant spider that had given birth in his stomach.

    Legal Insurrection ^ | Mark Finkelstein
    Tom Friedman’s frothing hyperventilation on CNN this morning epitomizes the Dem/MSM hysteria over the Sessions/Russians flap. Friedman claimed: “A lot of evidence” that Jeff Sessions “perjured himself.” The failure of more Republicans to be up in arms about the matter “one of the most shameful things I have seen in almost 30 years being in Washington, DC.” In a nifty bit of saying something by claiming not to say it, in describing the seriousness of the matter, Friedman mentions 9/11 and Pearl Harbor while claiming not to compare them, at least in terms of “lives lost.” View the video here.

    The man who says he was the mastermind of the Sept. 11 terrorist attack seeks to justify the plot as a “natural reaction” to US foreign policy in a blistering letter sent to then President Barack Obama from the Guantanamo prison. Khalid Shaikh Mohammad, one of five Guantanamo prisoners facing trial by military commission for their alleged roles in the hijacking plot, also writes in the letter released Wednesday that it does not matter to him if he receives a life sentence or the death penalty from the tribunal. “If your court sentences me to life in prison, I will...

    Khalid Sheikh Mohammed, the mastermind of the 9/11 attacks, wrote a letter to President Obama in early 2015 which was delivered to the White House shortly before Obama left office. The 18-page letter, which was published today by the Miami Herald, claims the 9/11 attack was, in large part, a response to U.S. support for Israel. From the Miami Herald: The Kuwait-born Pakistani citizen of Baluch ethnic background, lists a long litany of U.S. overseas interventions — from Iraq and Iran to Vietnam and Hiroshima — to justify the worst terror attack on U.S. soil.But he is particularly focused...

    Saudi Arabia may have just lost the American presidential election, but its lobbying interests are alive and well in the U.S. Congress. The Saudis, who are said to have financed as much as a fifth of Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign, didn’t prevail there, but they continue to work at the highest levels in Washington to assert their will and scuttle American initiatives. Last year, for example, Congress passed the Justice Against Sponsors of Terrorism Act, or JASTA, which allows American citizens to sue the government of Saudi Arabia for people and property lost in the 9/11 attacks. Fourteen of the...

    The disclosure that Jamie Gorelick, a member of the September 11 commission, was personally responsible for instituting a key obstacle to cooperation between law enforcement and intelligence operations before the terrorist attacks raises disturbing questions about the integrity of the commission itself. Ms. Gorelick should not be cross-examining witnesses; instead, she should be required to testify about her own behavior under oath. Specifically, commission members need to ask her about a 1995 directive she wrote that made it more difficult for the FBI to locate two of the September 11 hijackers who had already entered the country by the summer...

    The prevailing assumption is that the tapes were destroyed to conceal harsh CIA interrogation methods. Gerald Posner suggests another possible explanation: Re the breaking news that the CIA destroyed the videotapes of interrogations with 2 terror suspects, you might have seen that the tapes of the interrogation of Abu Zubaydah were destroyed. You might also recall that in my 2003 NYT bestseller (reached #2), Why America Slept: The Failure to Prevent 9/11, my last chapter was titled, "The Interrogation." Based on two active US intelligence sources, I was the first to disclose Zubaydah's interrogation. To date, I am the only...

    As late as October 2012, federal prosecutors and FBI agents in New York City were actively exploring filing charges against a suspect for providing material support to the 9/11 hijackers and other crimes. The suspect’s identity and many details of the New York investigation are blanked out of a FBI summary report that discusses “Updates and Initiatives (as of 5 October 2012)” about 9/11. The document was released to Florida Bulldog amid ongoing Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) litigation that seeks access to records of the 9/11 Review Commission. The report was heavily redacted for national security, privacy and other...

    Jesus had his Judas, General George Washington had his Benedict Arnold, and the 9/11 victims’ families have their betrayers in Republican Senators Lindsey Graham (S.C.), John McCain (Ariz.), and Orrin Hatch (Utah). The Senators are attempting infanticide of the 10-weeks-old Justice Against Sponsors of Terrorism Act (JASTA) which was enacted with their support to assist the 9/11 families in obtaining judicial redress for the 9/11 terrorist abominations. To paraphrase attorney Joseph Welch’s rebuke of Senator Joseph McCarthy during the Army-McCarthy hearings, have Senators Graham, McCain, and Hatch no sense of decency in putting the interests of the misogynist, religiously bigoted,...

Creates some interesting incentives for Trump— Paul Krugman (@paulkrugman) December 16, 2016 It’s not hard to unpack this. Bush was elected in 2000 by the narrowest of margins.

According to the poll results — which were based on a survey of 3,000 British Muslims conducted by ICM for the Policy Exchange think tank — 31% of respondents said the US government was behind the devastating September 2001 terrorist attacks — in which nearly 3,000 people were killed in New York, Pennsylvania and Virginia — while 7% pointed a finger of blame at Jews. A majority — 52% — said they did not know...

"We need to think hard about how to modify this bill." Graham, who supported the veto override, estimated that approximately 20 senators currently support changing the bill, something he thinks could happen as soon as the end-of-year lame-duck session.

I knew I’d find the exact words to quote before I saw them written: “And today, we once again pay tribute to these patriots, both military and civilian, who serve in our name, including those far away from home in Afghanistan and Iraq.” That’s from our President. Our nation’s military’s Commander in Chief. That’s the leader of our country that can’t even ensure...

    Occidental College is investigating the vandalism of a 9/11 memorial on campus after the US flags used in the display were tossed in the trash. The Occidental College Republican Club said it had planted 2,997 tiny flags -- one for each of the victims of the September 11, 2001, attacks -- on the quad of the Los Angeles liberal arts college of 2,100 students. "Vandals crushed, snapped and threw in the garbage every single flag," the college GOP club said on Facebook. "Not one was left in the ground." The temporary display consisted of a sign saying, "9/11 Never Forget...

    Hillary Clinton received what appears to be a neurological test prior to her leaving and collapsing at a 9/11 commemoration ceremony Sunday. Clinton’s personal physician, Dr. Lisa Bardack, is seen in the image with her finger in Clinton’s closed fist, talking to her intently.

    The was something hideous – the word is used advisedly – about the Hillary Show on Sunday. We all saw the video that starts with Hillary leaning on the stanchion waiting for the Secret Service SUV to arrive. In most venues on the Web, it is replayed first with at least two zooms and then mirror-imaged which has the illusion of providing additional information, although we know it does not. As the SUV arrives, Hillary tries to shuffle forward off the stanchion on which she has been leaning. She moves, attempting a stiff-legged shuffle, which she cannot do by herself....

    Looking back at 9/11 through the tunnel of years, like watching the painfully blue light of the memorial towers of light sweep the sky, is both remote and vast. Looking back through time is like looking at a mountain or the sky. At a skyscraper or thousands of graves. A vastness beyond meaning. "The world will little note, nor long remember what we say here, but it can never forget what they did here," Lincoln said in the Gettysburg Address. It was not that way at Gettysburg, but it has been that way at Ground Zero. All the words fall...

    The media can shield her from Whitewater and Filegate and Travelgate. The FBI can broom her multiple felonies in the email scandal. They can all look the other way on the cattle futures and Vince Foster and all the other scandals that are Hillary Clinton. But all of her protectors and apologists can’t do a damn thing about her failing health — and it’s driving them crazy. They tried their best Sunday morning though. Even after Fox started reporting a “medical emergency,” over on CNN they were scoffing, and they would be yet, if not for the cellphone videos. Consider...

    A photo of a firefighter in full gear climbing the stair machine at a Planet Fitness gym in Tennessee has gone viral on Facebook. Planet Fitness employee Lezlie Bauler said a man walked into the gym suited up as a firefighter and asked her if he could climb 110 sets of stairs in honor of the fallen on 9/11. “I am not one to get emotional, but a few tears were shed,” Bauler wrote on Facebook. “Thank you for your services.”

    Give the man credit. At least this time around he didn't hurl the wreath, offer a latte salute or hold his hands over his crotch during the Anthem or any of the other wonderfully patriotic behaviors he has become so known for. Sure he was bored with a Moment of Silence for a bunch of Americans. It's not like they matter. Now if they had been Muslims, it might have been another matter. Or left-wing heroes. But they were bourgeois scum. People he is forced to care about in public, while despising and persecuting the rest of the time.

    Where was Huma???? There was Hillary at the memorial tribute for the 15th Anniversary of the 9/11 attack at the WTC site, and Huma was nowhere to be found. Huma is almost always with Hillary, even for far less significant matters, and this was one of the most important public events of this year or any year. Huma is Hillary's chief personal assistant and all-around "body gal" present for almost everything she does in public. I submit that a treasonous Muslim like Huma just wasn't "comfortable" at a memorial to the 9/11 victims. Oh, sure, Hillarybots will say Huma was...

    Tyler DurdenSeptember 12, 2016 In all the confusion surrounding yesterday's Hillary health scare, the WaPo reported originally, and then revised, that none other than the Secret Service "broke its own protocol" in the confused, stunned context of Hillary Clinton's early departure from Ground Zero on Sunday. The Wapo brought attention to the widely circulated video of the Democratic presidential nominee's departure from the ceremony, in which Clinton can be seen leaning against a security bollard and then buckling and stumbling as her security detail helps her into a black van. Citing two former Secret Service agents who reviewed the video,...
