    A group of 9/11 families and their supporters are rallying in front of Manhattan's federal courthouse to protest the plan to put terrorism suspects on trial in New York. The protesters plan to gather in front of the lower Manhattan courthouse at noon. They say a New York trial could again make the city a terrorism target, and that the five should instead face a military tribunal. Other victims of the 9/11 attacks disagree. Lorie Van Auken lost her husband at the World Trade Center. She says its fitting that the accused answer charges a short walk from ground zero....

    On September 10th of this year the Entertainment Industry Foundation (EIF) posted a press release informing the world that “from October 19-25, more than 60 network TV shows [will] spotlight the power and personal benefits of service,” and that this “unprecedented block of TV programming is the first wave of a multi-year ‘I Participate’ campaign.” On its face this all sounds rather benign in that silly, liberal do-gooder kind of way. The networks have launched these kinds of campaigns before and other than some clunky exposition awkwardly inserted into your favorite show to meet the mandate — no harm, no...

    Two Arrested at New York City Demonstration Marking 8th Anniversary of Afghan War By Alex Kane Two members of the New York City War Resisters League (WRL) were arrested this evening as part of an anti-Afghanistan War demonstration in Grand Central in Midtown Manhattan. 64-year-old Ed Hedemann and Eric Laursen were taken away in handcuffs by the New York Police Department during a protest marking the 8th anniversary of the invasion of Afghanistan.Hedemann was arrested and then picked up and brought downstairs by four officers after attempting to drop an anti-war banner in Grand Central, while Laursen was apprehended for...

    Homeland Security: Provisions of the law that spared New York another 9/11 are set to expire Dec. 31. So why do Democrats want to gut this law and remove the immunity telecom companies have for helping protect America? To borrow a British expression from World War II, it was a very near thing. The capture, arrest and indictment of 24-year-old Afghan immigrant Najubullah Zazi before he could set off bombs made from store-bought chemicals prevented a tragedy of potentially devastating proportions. It wouldn't have happened if the critics of Patriot Act had their way. The capture of Zazi was made...
  • Warning for 9-11-09

    As everyone knows and remembers, tomorrow is 9-11. for the past 8 years (almost), we have been safe and free from a heinous attack on the scale of 9-11 or worse. Every year around this time, though, most did not worry of another attack because of the safety measures and the two fronts of the WOT. I was one of those people for the last 4 or so years. But, recently I have had a bad feeling, almost a premonition, that something may occur, what, where, and when, I don't know, around this time. I don't want to frighten anyone,...

    DENVER - Claims that an Afghan immigrant was on the verge of unleashing a terrorist attack on New York City on the anniversary of the Sept. 11 are missing a key element: explosives or the chemicals allegedly used to make them, the man's attorney said. FBI agents have yet to find those elements and connect them to Najibullah Zazi, charged with conspiring to use weapons of mass destruction in a plot authorities say was aimed at commuter trains, attorney Arthur Folsom told a federal judge in Denver Friday. U.S. Magistrate Judge Craig Shaffer ultimately ordered Zazi's transfer to New York,...

    DENVER – An Afghan immigrant wanted to carry out a massive New York City terror attack involving hydrogen peroxide bombs on commuter trains to coincide with the Sept. 11 anniversary before federal authorities foiled the plan, a U.S. prosecutor said Friday. U.S. prosecutor Tim Neff told a federal judge in Denver that Najibullah Zazi "was intent on being in New York on 9/11" for a possible terror attack. "The defendant was in the throes of making a bomb and attempting to perfect his formulation," Neff said. He called the evidence a "chilling, disturbing sequence of events." Neff ordered Zazi, a...

    With scant public input, state and federal officials are pushing ahead with plans that -- during a severe flu outbreak -- would deny use of scarce ventilators by some patients to assure they would be available for patients judged to benefit the most from them. The plans have been drawn up to give doctors specific guidelines for extreme circumstances, and they include procedures under which patients who weren’t improving would be removed from life support with or without permission of their families. The plans are designed to go into effect if the U.S. were struck by a severe flu pandemic...

    The Incredible Story Of Maria Esperanza By Michael H. BrownShe is widely regarded as the greatest living mystic. The miracles that surround her are vast -- among the best documented in Church history. Not since Padre Pio, the famous Italian priest now set for canonization, has there been a thaumaturge,  a "wonderworker," of her scale. She's a seer. She's a healer. She's a stigmatist. She often exudes an inexplicably beautiful fragrance. Some even claim to have seen her in levitation. I speak here of Maria Esperanza from Venezuela. We have had a number of stories about her, but never her background....

    The immortal words of Franklin D. Roosevelt not only apply to December 7th, 1941, but September 11th, 2001, as well. Most of our readers are citizens of the United States, and those that aren’t almost surely know of that day of terror some eight years ago today. Some refer to it as 9-11. Others call it simply September 11th. Officially, we call it “Patriot Day.” Over three thousand lives were lost on the several hijacked and deliberately crashed airplanes, the obliterated World Trade Center, and the desecrated Pentagon. Literally hundreds of YouTube videos and thousands of photographs have been made...

    For better or worse, we have new Washington leadership and a new direction for America. It's a softer and relational Washington, with whom international bonds are more important than national borders and boundaries. It's a more secular Washington, which says that the country is no longer a "Christian nation." It's a more liberal Washington; it has enacted more left-leaning legislation in its first year than any previous administration. It's a more generous Washington, from whom handouts, bailouts and borrowing are granted and given at record-breaking political speed. But my greatest concern, I must confess, is that it's a kinder and...

    By Jeremy Pelofsky Jeremy Pelofsky – 2 hrs 8 mins ago WASHINGTON (Reuters) – The Obama administration has asked the U.S. Congress to extend three surveillance techniques for intelligence agencies tracking suspected militants that expire this year, according to a letter to lawmakers. Approved after the September 11 attacks in 2001 at the request of the Bush administration, techniques such as roving wiretaps and accessing all kinds of personal records drew criticism from civil liberties groups and some lawmakers who said they were unconstitutional and violated privacy rights...

    Last Friday, September 11 2009, somewhere around 500 patriots gathered outside of Walter Reed Army Medical Center in Washington DC. It was the largest number of people that we have had there since Free Republic started holding vigils there in early 2005. Certainly also a lot more than the dozen or so we usually get on a Friday night! I am just going to go straight off to the photos you are interested in the most; the ones from when the crowd was at it's maximum: The whole event had a festival atmosphere. We set up tents in the small...

    Across from the World Trade Center site there were more flowers than usual outside Engine 10, Ladder 10, the legendary New York firehouse known as Ten House. There are always more flowers, and signs, and photographs and flags, when there is another anniversary of Sept. 11. So the FDNY Memorial Wall, stretching down Greenwich St., was alive with color and handmade art yesterday morning. A "Flag of Heroes," listing the names of emergency service personnel who gave their lives eight years ago, hung outside Ten House at the corner of Greenwich and Liberty. There was a wreath for the Rev....

    As any airline passenger can attest, security at the nation's airports has gotten infinitely more stringent in the eight years since the Sept. 11 attacks. While the technology to screen passengers has become more advanced and the check-in lines a little shorter, the question of whether flying is terrorism-proof remains. By now the routine has become mind-numbingly familiar: Travelers take off their shoes and put them in gray plastic containers along with their toiletries. They carry no more than three 3-ounce bottles in a 1-quart plastic bag, remove laptops from cases and so on. It's a scene played out millions...

    American support for Israel was the reason for the 9/11 terrorist attacks on the United States in 2001, according to an audio message purported to be from Osama bin Laden, the leader of the international Al-Qaeda terrorist organization. The whereabouts of Bid Laden are not known, and the video image accompanying the audio featured only a still picture of him. The title of the audio was, “Message to the American People.” and was released two days after the eighth anniversary of the multiple aerial attacks on the U.S.

    This November, New York voters will vote on a ballot initiative to establish an official government "9/11 TRUTHER" commission with subpoena power and a $10 million a yaer budget from PRIVATE DONATIONS. The wording of the ballot initiative is seductive and low-key enough to win a majority of NYC voters, simply asking "Would you like to find out more about what happened on 9/11?" The ballot initiative does NOT make any accusations or mention any conspiracy theories. Therefore, the ballot initiative is likely to pass. Even those who do not believe in the conspiracy theories will want to know more...
