  • Trump denies mocking disabled reporter (still controlling the narrative)

    GOP presidential front-runner Donald Trump says he does not know the disabled New York Times reporter he is accused of mocking. "I have no idea who this reporter, Serge Kovaleski is, what he looks like or his level of intelligence," Trump said in a statement posted on Twitter on Thursday. "I don't know if he's J.J. Watt or Muhammad Ali in his prime--or somebody of less athletic or physical ability." Trump cited an article written by Kovaleski in 2001, when he wrote for The Washington Post, that appeared to corroborate the businessman's story of seeing Arab-Americans in New Jersey celebrating...

    Like pretty much else in this race for the White House as it pertains to Donald Trump, this Muslims-celebrating-in-Jersey-after-9/11-story dominating the narrative for days is a fascinating study in media process. Before we continue, a little background from the author: I was in New York on 9/11. I lived in Jersey (still do) at the time. I, like the rest of the country, watched the news non-stop for days, weeks after the attacks. And while I do vividly remember images coming out of the Middle East of people openly celebrating the attacks (that one older woman with big glasses snapping...

    Students at the University of Minnesota killed a proposed moment of silence for 9/11 victims due to concerns that Muslim students would be offended. Theo Menon, a Minnesota Student Association representative realized that the university wasn't doing anything to memorialize 9/11. So, on October 6, he introduced an MSA proposal to asking the university to institute a "moment of recognition" during the mornings of all future September 11ths. The resolution in no way referred to Islam or to whether Islam itself is to blame for global terrorism. It did not require anyone to contemplate the fact that the terrorists responsible...

It apparently contained the following text: But tolerance of Muslim immigrants began to change in the aftermath of Sept. 11, 2001. Parallel to the declarations of "unconditional solidarity" with Americans by the German majority, rallies of another sort were taking place in Neukölln and Kreuzberg. Bottle rockets were set off from building courtyards, a poor man's fireworks: two rockets here, three rockets there.

By repeating – and indeed embellishing – this hateful rumor, Trump once again ratchets up the ugliness in the current political climate. Thousands and thousands of people in Jersey City did not cheer the destruction of the World Trade Center on Sept. 11, 2001. Period. End of story. There is no need to continue to "fact check'' his words. The truth is that Trump's statements are factually, ethically and morally wrong. Those of...

Theo Menon, the student group representative to MSA for the College Republicans (CRs) at UMN, introduced the resolution; MSA's forum voted against it 36-23 (with three abstentions). The proposed resolution pointed to the university's lack of any sort of commemoration regarding the attacks on 9/11. It then called for a campus-wide moment of recognition on every September 11 from now on. "I wrote...

The numbers of potential jihadists among the majority of Muslims who appear not to be sympathetic to such notions raise a number of public policy choices that warrant careful consideration and urgent debate, including: the necessity for enhanced surveillance of Muslim communities; refugee resettlement, asylum and other immigration programs that are swelling their numbers and density; and the viability of so-called “countering violent extremism” initiatives...

Washington's 14-year and ongoing slaughter of Muslims and destruction of their countries are war crimes for which the US government's official 9/11 conspiracy theory was the catalyst. Factual evidence and science do not support Washington's conspiracy theory. The 9/11 Commission did not conduct an investigation. It was not permitted to investigate. The Commission sat and listened to the government's story and wrote it down. Afterwards, the chairman and cochairman of the Commission said that the Commission "was set up to fail."

    It is a simple and undeniable fact that the American national-security apparatus failed on September 11, 2001. How do we know? Because al-Qaeda succeeded in carrying out the bloodiest, most devastating attack on American soil in our nations history. The military, law enforcement, and intelligence assets tasked with preventing just such an attack failed. The political leaders who ultimately determine our national defense priorities failed. To state this rather obvious fact doesnt make one a truther. It does not in any way imply that George W. Bush or any other American politician was complicit in the attacks or didnt do...

    October 20, 2015 19 months before 9/11, Trump warned of terror attack on major city By Thomas Lifson ndrew Kaczynski writes in Buzzfeed: In 2000, 19 months before Sept. 11, 2001, Donald Trump wrote extensively of the terrorism threat the United States was facing. Trump, who at the time was considering a presidential bid on the Reform Party ticket, went so far as to say that an attack on a major U.S. city was not just a probability, but an inevitability. I really am convinced were in danger of the sort of terrorist attacks that will make the bombing of...

    Donald Trump is not letting Americans forget that the 9/11 terrorist attacks happened under former President George W. Bush. Trumps relentless attacks on the issue come as he battles former Gov. Jeb Bush (R-Fla.), George W. Bushs brother, for the GOPs presidential nomination in 2016. Interesting reading re: September 11th, he tweeted Monday afternoon, referencing a New York Times story titled The Bush White House was Deaf to 9/11 Warnings. Jeb is fighting to defend a catastrophic event, Trump said of Jeb Bush in a separate post. I am fighting to make sure it doesnt happen again, he added. "Jeb...

    GOP presidential candidate Jeb Bush is defending his brother, former President George W. Bush, against GOP frontrunner Donald Trumps reminder that 9-11 occurred under George W. Bushs watch. But the International Business Times (IBT) reports a number of the hijackers on 9-11 actually obtained Florida drivers licenses or I.D. cards while Jeb Bush was governor, which allowed them to blend into society. On Friday, Trump noted 9-11 occurred while President George W. Bush was president, which led Jeb Bush to defend his brother, saying he kept America safe and calling Trumps statement pathetic. Despite evidence that his brothers...

    Jeb admitted in his own book that 'leaky' immigration policy led to 9/11 exactly what he said was 'pathetic' after Trump blasted his brother for failing to prevent it. A new battlefield has emerged in the war of words between Republican presidential front-runner Donald Trump and the man he deposed in July, and this time it's Jeb Bush's own words that are coming back to haunt him. The former Florida governor wrote a book in 2013, 'Immigration Wars,' in which he wrote that the airplane hijackers who attacked New York City and Washington D.C. on Sept. 11, 2001 were...
