INCOMING, #2 HORROR RAINS DOWN FIRE AT 9:03 NO. WHERE. TO. GO. SHE’S COME UNDONE AFTER. How quickly the country forgots the importance of first responders who run towards disaster We said we’d never forget but not only have people forgotten, they’re rewriting the script; now the only thing people are unwilling to forget is how racist our slave owning founders were.

  • D.C. Museum Putting WTC Antenna In Storage Instead Of Giving It To 9/11 Museum

    The top section of the antenna from the North Tower of the World Trade Center which had been on display at a Washington D.C. museum is being put in storage—instead of going to National 9/11 Memorial and Museum in Manhattan. The 360-foot antenna carried the signal of most of New York City’s television broadcasters and a few radio stations, including WNYC. Since 2008, a section of it has been part of the Newseum's September 11th exhibit, which also includes newspaper headlines and videos. But the Newseum, whose mission was to "increase public understanding of the importance of a free press...
  • Mike Pompeo: ISIS 'more powerful today' in some areas of the world despite losing Syria caliphate

    Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said Tuesday that the Islamic State remains a “complicated” foreign policy challenge and is actually stronger in some corners of the world today than it was before having its self-proclaimed “caliphate” decimated by U.S.-backed forces in Syria and Iraq. “There are certainly places where ISIS is more powerful today than they were three or four years ago,” said Mr. Pompeo, who asserted that President Trump “is very focused on making sure that we apply the right resources against the problem.” Mr. Pompeo’s rare acknowledgment of the Islamic State’s threat, a group President Trump has claimed...

    A nine foot sculpture has risen on the site of the World Trade Center terror attack of 9/11 in New York. It’s a Saudi Arabian candy monument inscribed with the words, “There is no god but Allah, and Mohammed is the prophet.” Those are the same words used by the 9/11 terrorists who blew up the Twin Towers at that site. Most of the terrorists were Saudis and the government itself has been implicated at high levels. The Saudi monument is one of the statues representing the 20 nations — the G20 — that artist Laurence Jenkell thought appropriate for...

    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.

    New York City, 1985Opened in 1973 the Twin Towers, was a massive complex of nearly 10 million square feet that was home to 430 companies and 35,000 workers. Closed permanently on September 1, 2001.It seems impossible but 17 years hence there is an entire generation of children who were not yet born, or too young to remember, the worst terrorist attack on U.S. soil. Seventeen years have passed and we seem afraid to teach children the truth about the culture of hatred that caused this atrocity. Instead we continue to allow Social Justice Warriors to brainwash another generation of children...

    Follow the money and since 1945 the United States has followed the money to Saudi Arabia. After he handed the keys to Eastern Europe to Joseph Stalin and Communism at Yalta, President Franklin Roosevelt met the Saudi king on a warship anchored in a Saudi port and the longterm relationship between the USA and the House of Saud was sealed. When Saddam Hussein threatened in 1990, the US military and the military of other nations arrived paid by Kuwait, the Saudis and other Gulf Arab states for their military mission. America fought its first war for Saudi Arabia. Again in...

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TPfrtngwzjY Written right after hearing fireman Mike Moran, at the Concert for New York, tell Osama bin Laden to "Kiss my royal Irish ass." Chris Storc saw it, worked with me to tweek it, and he got together the group to sing it. The tune was sent to Hannity, he played it on the air, and said he had 5,000 requests for it. Mike lost his older brother, Battalion Commander and FReeper John Moran on 9/11. I had the pleasure of meeting Mike and some FReepers at a New York Irish pub a year or so later to hoist a...

    I’m still worried about all my friends in Florida and Georgia, and pray no harm has come to anyone.But now, because it is 9/11, and because it has been 16 years since Islam rained terror on our country I am reposting my grim annual reminder of what we are facing. Because already there is an upcoming generation that has no concept of the pure evil manifested that day because their teachers are not allowed to name the evil, their parents don’t want to be called Islamophobic and the Deep State Media won’t mention it’s name. In fact the entire left...

    The Senate on Tuesday narrowly turned back a bipartisan bid to rebuke Saudi Arabia and reject President Donald Trump's plan to sell the kingdom more than $500 million in precision-guided munitions, sparing the new Republican administration an embarrassing defeat. The vote Tuesday was 53-47, clearing the way for the sale to be finalized. The precision munitions are part of Trump's proposed $110 billion arms package to Riyadh, which the administration said would create U.S. jobs while also improving a key ally's military capability. But opponents of the deal, led by Sens. Rand Paul, R-Ky., and Chris Murphy, D-Conn., have been...

    Mzoudi was a liaison to al Qaeda, witness said. A man claiming to be a former Iranian spy testified Friday that Abdelghani Mzoudi, the second man to be tried for an alleged role in the Sept. 11 attacks, was involved in the preparations to hit the World Trade Center. The witness, who goes by the alias Hamid Reza Zakeri, took the stand at the Hanseatic Higher Regional Court in Hamburg and claimed that Mzoudi, was "responsible for part of the organization" of the suicide attacks that destroyed the twin towers in New York and damaged the Pentagon. Zakeri testified Mzoudi...

    CNN is one of those ubiquitous aspects of the American soundscape which I’ve always looked upon as part of our gradual cultural decline. Whether you’re in a dentist’s waiting room, or simply passing by a restaurant on your way home-as I was this weekend-you can’t help but overhear one of that network’s correspondents, news anchors or hosts do their best KCNA imitation. The fact that so many millions of Americans unconsciously imbibe its propaganda on a daily basis merely illustrates how difficult it will be to craft a counter-narrative to the open borders, liberal interventionist propaganda which shapes our government’s...

    Almost 55 months after confessing felonious conduct, Teamster money-laundering scandal figure, Jere Nash, has finally been sentenced. U.S. Dist. Judge Thomas P. Griesa (S.D.N.Y., Nixon) sentenced Nash Apr. 9 to a mere two years probation for his role in a series of schemes which lead to the embezzlement of some $885,000 from the Int'l Bhd. of Teamsters' treasury and to $538,100 in illegal campaign contributions to the failed reelection campaign of expelled IBT president Ron Carey. The sentencing appears to have been hush hush: the four N.Y.C. major dailies and the two Washington, D.C., dailies apparently did not cover the...

    It was one of the most memorable moments of the night: Donald Trump defended his “New York values” with a calm, forceful, deeply personal reflection on what it was like to be a New Yorker after the 9/11 attacks. That moment showed just how far Trump has come as a candidate, revealing a style that was more purposeful statesman than bombastic showman. ...... Instead, Trump explained himself and his city. “When the World Trade Center came down, I saw something that no place on Earth could have handled more beautifully, more humanely than New York,” Trump said to warm applause,...
