104 Jumpers Who Flung Themselves From The Twin Towers Have Been 'Airbrushed From History'
The London Daily Mail ^ | 05:01 EST, 11 September 2011 | Tom Leonard

From the earliest days after the 9/11 attacks, the American establishment have showed an overwhelming reluctance to dwell on those who jumped or fell from the Twin Towers.

Unofficial estimates put the number of jumpers at around 200, but it is impossible to say for certain because their bodies were indistinguishable from others after the collapse of the Towers.

As part of its research into where the fire was at its most intense, NIST analysed camera footage and still photographs, and counted 104 jumpers, often recording the floor and exact window from which they left.

All but three leapt from the first building to be hit — the North Tower. The second plane struck the South Tower 16 minutes later but it collapsed first, giving occupants less time to react.

The first jumper is recorded plunging from the North Tower’s 149th window of the 93rd floor on the north face of the building at 8.51am, just over four minutes after it was hit by the first hijacked Boeing 757 between the 93rd and 99th floors.

Sometimes fallers were separated by an interval of just a second. At one point nine people fell in six seconds from five adjacent windows; at another, 13 people fell in two minutes. Twenty minutes after the building was struck, two people fell simultaneously from the same window on the 95th floor.

At least four jumpers tried to climb to other windows for safety then lost their grip. One person climbed from the 93rd floor to the 92nd, clinging to the window’s edge before falling just one second after someone else plumetted from the same window — number 215 on the east face of the tower.

The last jumper fell just as the North Tower collapsed 102 minutes after the building had been hit.

The jumpers have not been "airbrushed" from my memory ... if anything, their pictures are indelibly seared into it.

And because the PRESS refused to do it’s job, A MOZLUM HAS BEEN POTUS for the last 8 years.

They are the ones that will be jumping soon.

No mercy.

The most heartbreaking is the one of two jumpers holding hands, with one of them on fire. God bless them. WE MUST NEVER FORGET THEM.

Connecting the Dots
Today, on the 15th anniversary of 9-11, I began to wonder how it could possibly have happened that 7 years after our country was attacked by Muslims, American voters elected a Muslim as President of our country? What happened during this 7 years that could have possibly caused such a thing to happen where a man who didn’t even try to hide his Muslim background (“I will stand with the Muslims should the political winds shift in an ugly direction”) was elected and then re-elected President?

Could it be while we were distracted and chasing Muslims around Iraq, a country that had never threatened the American people, Saudi Arabia, the country that had fomented the attack on 9-11, was investing heavily in the U.S. Main Stream Media, schools, universities, the Democrat Party, and was preparing a Muslim takeover of the U.S. Government? If you think that couldn’t have happened, look around our Federal Government:

We have a President who claims to be a former Muslim, but the world knows “Once a Muslim, always a Muslim”.

The head of the U.S. CIA is a Muslim! John Brennan, current head of the CIA converted to Islam while stationed in Saudi Arabia

Obama’s top adviser, Valerie Jarrett, is a Muslim who was born in Iran where her parents still live.

Hillary Clinton’s top adviser, Huma Abedin is a Muslim, whose mother and brother are still involved in the now outlawed Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt!

Jeh Charles Johnson, a Muslim, is the current United States Secretary of Homeland Security. He was the General Counsel of the Department of Defense from 2009 to 2012 during the first Obama Administration.

Assistant Secretary for Policy Development for Homeland Security, Arif Aikhan, is a Muslim .

Homeland Security Adviser, Mohammed Elibiary, is a Muslim.

Obama adviser and founder of the Muslim Public Affairs Council, Salam al-Marayati, is a Muslim.

Obama’s Sharia Czar, Imam Mohamed Magid, of the Islamic Society of North America is a Muslim .

Advisory Council on Faith-Based Neighborhood Partnerships, Eboo Patel, is a Muslim and stated that all U.S. schools should be modeled after Islamic madrassas, where education is based on the Quran!!!

So, connecting the dots, what can we surmise? If Hillary Clinton is elected President, this Muslim infrastructure will not only remain in place, but it will expand even further. This tells us the Saudi investment in the Clinton Foundation was, for them, a good investment, but for the American people, it will be a continuing dissolution of our country.

Remember 9-11, remember the Saudis aren’t our friends, elect Donald Trump to the Presidency, close our borders until we know who we’re letting in, and remove those illegal aliens already here pose a threat to our safety. Illegal aliens who don’t pose a threat to our safety should be dealt with case by case.
