  • Commemorating the 20th Anniversary of 9/11

    09/16/2021 5:37:58 AM PDT · by Kaslin · 1 replies ^ | September 16, 2021 | Emmett Tyrrell
    Washington -- How did the weekend that commemorated the 20th anniversary of 9/11 -- America's Pearl Harbor for the 21st century -- go for you? There were huge American flags draping the skyscrapers of northern Virginia. The streets below, however, were relatively deserted. Across the river, there was a more traditional scene. Groups of tourists were parading around the remaining statues of downtown Washington. The presence of these statues -- all to old white men -- strikes an incongruous chord with me. Why are they there? Have the elites holding forth in our nation's classrooms not ordered them banished? Have...
  • He shouldn’t be lecturing anybody!’: Trump blasts Bush over Capitol riot remark on 9/11 (love Biff)

    Former President Donald Trump on Monday lashed out at George W. Bush for his 9/11 20th anniversary speech in which he appeared to compare the Jan. 6 rioters to foreign terrorists, saying the 43rd president, who was in office when the 9/11 attacks happened, “shouldn’t be lecturing anybody!” “​So interesting to watch former President Bush, who is responsible for getting us into the quicksand of the Middle East (and then not winning!), as he lectures us that terrorists on the ​’​right​’​ are a bigger problem than those from foreign countries that hate America, and that are pouring into our Country...
  • A Day to Remember…Terrorists Never to Forget

    Watching the 20-year anniversary coverage of the 9-11 terrorist attacks brought back a day to remember! Just before I was beginning to speak on managing change to Verizon leaders in Niagara Falls, I was handed a note. It read simply, “A plane had just crashed into one of the Twin Towers.” The executive whispered to me, “We’re going to have to cancel. We are one of the principal carriers in New York City. We have to get our people back to the city.” By the time we had left the meeting room and entered the lobby, we saw the second...

    President Biden on Saturday again defended the U.S. withdrawal from Afghanistan, arguing that the vast majority of Americans wanted to get out -- and asking "How else could you get out?" Biden was speaking to reporters in Shanksville, Pa., on the 20th anniversary of the 9/11 attacks and was asked about whether the withdrawal of the U.S. forces at the end of August marks a new phase for the country. "If you had told anybody that we were going to spend $300 million a day for 20 years to try to unite the country after we got [Usama] bin Laden,...

    The news programs that I recorded starting 9/16/2001. Commercials removed. Since I recorded from the beginning, I can only assume that the first ones went out with the unlabeled tapes. Sigh. Other recorded news, wars, etc. appear in this News Playlist. And Political Music Videos (mostly Trump) Playlist.

    (Note: This previously unpublished article was written on September 14, 2001, from the office of Fr. John A. Perricone at St. Agnes Rectory in Manhattan, some two miles away from Ground Zero. Much of the horror of that day has faded. Even more so, its urgent lessons. Much of America seems to have moved on to even greater follies.) I sit here writing this piece coughing on the fumes of hell. Though I sit some one hundred blocks from ground zero of Manhattan Island, the winds shift and billows of that smoke of death stretch all the way to my...
  • Taliban Observes Sept. 11 By Swearing In Govt Members Of Terrorist Dream Team Biden/Obama Traded For Traitor And Deserter Bowe Bergdahl

    The Constitutional Conservatives ^ | September 10, 2021 | Daniel John Sobieski
    Four top members of the Taliban's new interim government are former Guantanamo Bay prisoners who were freed by the Obama administration in a prisoner exchange for Army deserter Bowe Bergdahl. The four new officials were members of the hardline 'Guantanamo Five' who were traded to free Bergdahl from the Taliban-aligned Haqqani network in 2014. The Taliban on Tuesday announced the appointment of Acting Director of Intelligence Abdul Haq Wasiq, Acting Minister of Borders and Tribal Affairs Norullah Noori, Deputy Defense Minister Mohammad Fazl, and Acting Minister of Information and Culture Khairullah Khairkhah. The four men, who also took part in...
  • Sign This Petition: President Joe Biden is unworthy to preside at any September 11 Memorials on 09/11/21.

    President Joe Biden’s incompetent withdrawal and evacuation of US Armed Forces from Afghanistan has been a dismal failure causing America to be seen as an international embarrassment on the world stage. President Biden conducted his poorly planned withdrawal with little to no consultation and planning with our NATO Allies. Our NATO Allies were there to support America when she was attacked on September 11, 2001, yet they were shortchanged by Biden’s hasty retreat. President Biden also sullies the memories of all of those who died and sacrificed during the 9/11 attacks and the subsequent military actions to overthrow and neutralize...

    Illinois Review ^ | April 14, 2021 AD | John F Di Leo
    On September 11, 2001, four groups of terrorists, associated with Al Qaeda, hijacked domestic airplanes with the intention of crash-landing into four key symbols of the United States, both public and private landmarks. While a patriotic group of passengers in the fourth plane foiled one of the four plans, by the time it was all over, 3000 innocent people in New York and Washington had been murdered, and billions of dollars in property were destroyed. The islamofascist movement – call it what you will: muslim terrorists, Islamic extremists, jihadists, Satanists, whatever – jumped for joy around the globe. Those of...

    Dulles, Virginia – For only the second time in 18 years, I will not be in New York City this weekend. The annual Tunnel to Towers Run, normally scheduled for the last Sunday in September, is another casualty of COVID. The mayor’s regulations continue to keep businesses closed and tourists away. And with residents moving out, they also seem to have dampened the city’s famous fighting spirit that I first came to know as a student at New York University.  It’s ironic that the Tunnel to Towers Run was forced to cancel, because it is anything but a salute to...
  • What High School Players Suspended Over Support for Police, Firefighters Can Teach the NFL

    The story is at first aggravating to hear but the more we learn about it the better the outlook for this country becomes. A pair of high school football players in Morrow, Ohio, ran out on the field before a game holding a Blue Lives Matter and Red Lives Matter flag. They were later suspended over the display, for introducing a political message to the game. It was a sign of pregame social signaling, and as we have come to learn there is a glaring set of double standards on such issues.  For years we have been lectured that Colin...

    Dulles, Virginia – I had completed a business trip and was headed for home on Northwest Airlines Flight 238. Our 8:45 a.m. departure from Detroit to Reagan National was one of the last flights to take off that morning of September 11, 2001, because shortly after our ascent, all air traffic in the United States was grounded for the next two days. As we began our descent, our pilot informed the passengers that our flight had been diverted to Dulles Airport in northern Virginia. It was clear once we had landed and been informed of the terrorist attacks that the...

    Life is messy and full of unexpected twists and turns, leaving even the most obsessive control freaks among us feeling undone, mostly because much of the change introduced into our lives is rarely invited and not always pleasant. I speak with a bit of experience, after an involuntary catapult from “happily ever after” into “till death do us part” at approximately 9:30 a.m. on September 12, 2001—when the SUV I was in hydroplaned and collided head-on with a semi-trailer truck. We didn’t plan to drive, but our flight got canceled because of the terrorist attacks the day before. In the...

    The Trump administration is planning to provide the identity of a Saudi official who allegedly helped the 9/11 hijackers to family members of victims of the terror attacks that occurred 18 years ago. The news was first reported by The Wall Street Journal on Thursday. The victims' family members have been pressuring the Trump administration to release the information. In a recent letter to President Trump, they called on him to "instruct Attorney General Barr not to invoke privileges and to give us the FBI documents so that we can finally learn the full truth and obtain justice from Saudi...

    Hong Kong activists announced on Wednesday that protests would be suspended to observe the 18th anniversary of the 9/11 attacks on the United States. China’s state-run media accused the protesters of planning 9/11-style terrorist attacks themselves, complete with photos of the planes hitting the World Trade Center in 2001. “In solidarity against terrorism, all forms of protest in Hong Kong will be suspended on Sept. 11, apart from potential singing and chanting,” protest organizers said in a statement.The statement went on to denounce Beijing’s state-run China Daily for a Facebook post warning that “anti-government fanatics are planning massive terror attacks,...

    Eighteen years after the September 11 jihad attacks that murdered nearly three thousand people, this is where we are: the Bloomfield Hills Baptist Church in Michigan has canceled an event called “9/11 forgotten? Is Michigan surrendering to Islam” under pressure from the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), a group with ties to Hamas and the Muslim Brotherhood. And so the answers are clear: yes, 9/11 has been forgotten, and Michigan is indeed surrendering to Islam. The event was to feature an ex-Muslim, Shahram Hadian, speaking on “How the Interfaith Movement is Sabotaging America and the Church” and economist and investigative...

    Former NYPD Detective Luis Alvarez gave a passionate testimony before Congress earlier this month urging lawmakers to restore the 9/11 Compensation Victims Fund, which is set to expire next year. Sadly, he passed away at the age of 53 on Saturday. Alvarez was diagnosed with colorectal cancer in 2016. The illness was reportedly related to the three months he spent searching for survivors and remains at Ground Zero shortly after the September 11, 2001 terror attacks on the World Trade Center. “Please remember his words, ‘Please take care of yourselves and each other,’" Alvarez's family said in a statement. "We...
