  • New York’s Fighting Spirit

    09/26/2020 6:18:11 AM PDT · by Kaslin · 2 replies ^ | September 26, 2020 | Thomas P. Kilgannon
    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,...
  • Irony: CAIR Successfully Pressures Church to Cancel 'Is Michigan Surrendering to Islam?' Event

    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...

    House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) on Tuesday admitted that she does not know the content of Rep. Ilhan Omar’s (D-MN) recent remarks about 9/11 — despite offering a full-throated defense of the freshman congresswoman in the wake of criticism from President Donald Trump.(LINK) Nancy Pelosi: 'We have no taint' of anti-Semitism “I don’t think the congresswoman is anti-Semitic. I wouldn’t even put those in the same category,” Pelosi told interviewer Christiane Amanpour in Ireland. “We have no taint of that [anti-Semitism],” she added. “And just because they want to accuse somebody of that doesn’t mean that we take that bait.”Pelosi...

    Demonstrating a shocking level of ignorance and callousness, Rep. Ilhan Omar recently said to a gathering of supporters of the Council of American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), speaking of the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks: “CAIR was founded after 9/11 because they recognized that some people did something, and that all of us were starting to lose access to our civil liberties.” That’s right. She described the 9/11 attacks at a fundraiser for CAIR – a Hamas front organization and an unindicted co-conspirator in the Holy Land Foundation terror-financing case – as merely “some people did something.”Wow. Just wow. I think Ms. Omar...

    Remember. Forget. Repeat. For 17 years, America has engaged in a collective ritual every Sept. 11: Hang flags, light candles, bow heads and make vows to "Never forget." Then, every Sept. 12, it's back to business as usual: See something, do nothing. Did you remember that five of the 9/11 hijackers -- Mohamed Atta, Marwan al-Shehhi, Hani Hanjour, Nawaf al-Hazmi and Satam al-Suqami -- carried out their killer plot after overstaying their visas, evading detection and avoiding deportation? Did you remember that other radical Muslim members of the Terrorist Visa Overstayers Club? They include 1997 New York subway bomber Lafi...

    On Patriot Day, we honor the memories of the nearly 3,000 precious lives we lost on September 11, 2001, and of every hero who has given their life since that day to protect our safety and our freedom. We come together, today, to recall this timeless truth: When America is united, no force on Earth can break us apart. Our values endure; our people thrive; our Nation prevails; and the memory of our loved ones never fades. Although that fateful Tuesday 17 years ago began like any other, it erupted into horror and anguish when radical Islamist terrorists carried out...

    President Donald Trump spoke at the 9/11 memorial service in Shanksville, Pennsylvania, on Tuesday, recalling the attacks of September 11, 2001. Trump praised the valor of the 40 passengers and crew members of Flight 93 for resisting the terrorists in control of the hijacked plane, which led to the crash in a Pennsylvania field. “At this memorial on this sacred earth in the field beyond this wall and in the skies above our heads, we remember the moment when America fought back,” Trump said, praising the Americans aboard the flight–“changed the course of history” by resisting the terrorists. Trump recognized...

    A New York City subway station has reopened for the first time since it was destroyed 17 years ago in the 11 September 2001 terrorist attack. Cortlandt Street on the 1 line was buried under debris when the two World Trade Center towers collapsed after hijackers crashed planes into them. On Saturday, people were welcomed into the newly renamed WTC Cortlandt station as the first train rolled in at midday.

    Administrator’s have banned a 9/11 memorial at the Wisconsin college because Muslims might feel bad and get “singled out and/or harassed”. Young America’s Foundation which puts up the memorial each year said the administration cited bias reports. They are not allowed to put up a 9/11 memorial or any memorial for a victim of radical Islamic terrorism.

    Um, Phil Griffin, call your office because you might want to actually do something this time about AM Joy host and MSNBC favorite Joy Reid. Early Wednesday evening, BuzzFeed News reporters Joseph Bernstein and Charlie Warzel published a piece revealing that she had published a March 22, 2006 item on her website, Reidblog, that encouraged readers to check out a 9/11 truther documentary called Loose Change 9/11.  Bernstein and Warzel note that easily-debunked, conspiracy theory-laden documentary “was produced in part by Infowars’ Alex Jones, alleged that the terrorist attacks on the World Trade Center were in fact planned by the...

    Gina Haspel's nomination for CIA director has not been easy. The current deputy director of the agency faces critics from both sides of the political aisle who are shining a spotlight on her role in the enhanced interrogation techniques program that was used during the George W. Bush administration. That program, which included what critics call harsh tactics, were employed in the aftermath of the September 11 terror attacks. Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) wrote a whole op-ed about why Haspel, who was "complicit in torture," is wrong for the role of CIA chief.Condoleezza Rice, who was national security advisor at...

    If there’s something The Handmaid’s Tale author Margaret Atwood knows about, it’s life imitating art. And now, in a wide-ranging interview with Variety, which recognized the celebrated author as one of its Power of Women honorees, Atwood has made a surprising claim about the way she thinks pop culture influenced another event: She said the 9/11 terrorists attacks were borne out of a plot point from Star Wars. Atwood was recounting how a 2000 opera of her acclaimed novel (and now Emmy-winning Hulu series) began with “a film reel going across the top of the stage and showing various things...
