  • Political Correctness has Neutered Patriotism [vanity]

    03/13/2016 6:04:42 AM PDT · by Arthur Wildfire! March · 48 replies
    Seeing the Chicago Rally with a fresh perspective: On 9-11-01 most of the passengers in the commercial jets cooperated with terrorists. Why? Political correctness dictated that they do so. Who turned out to be right? The passengers of United 93 -- this century's first stark example of patriotic courage. At the Chicago rally most of the Trump supporters avoided confrontations. Who turned out to be right? In that case there was NO WAY that any patriotic civilian could do the right thing. The law plays favorites against patriotism, especially in thuggish hellholes like Chicago. So sure, a man could keep...
  • 9/11 13 Years Later And The Importance Of "110 Stories"

    It’s hard to believe it’s been 13 years since that horrific terrorist attack on American soil. That day on 9/11 in 2001, four coordinated attacks were made on our nation, including the unforgettably, frighteningly horrible fall of the Twin Towers at NYC’s World Trade Center. I was lucky: I worked in Tower Two of the WTC for five years before moving to California.

    On September 11, 2001, Delta Flight 15 received a terse directive: “All airways over the Continental United States are closed to commercial air traffic. Land ASAP at the nearest airport. Advise your destination.” Far out over the Atlantic on a flight from Germany to America, the captain adjusted his heading to land at Gander, Newfoundland. Those aboard noticed that the airport was cluttered with commercial aircraft, and knew something was terribly wrong. Once on the ground, the captain told them that terrorists had hijacked three domestic flights. They were horrified when he described events involving the World Trade Center and...
  • Saudi official: Western politicians and media linked Islam to 9/11 (Short Title)

    Of course, in the real world it wasn’t Western politicians and media who linked Islam to the 9/11 attacks. It was the hijackers and plotters themselves. In March 2009, the masterminds of the 9/11 plot, Khalid Sheikh Mohammed, Ramzi bin As-Shibh, Walid bin ‘Attash, Mustafa Ahmed AI-Hawsawi, and ‘Ali ‘abd Al-’Aziz ‘Ali – styling themselves as the “9/11 Shura Council” –wrote a lengthy communiqué titled “The Islamic Response to the Government’s Nine Accusations.”
  • Josh Morgan's Mother Safe After Navy Yard Shooting (Was in Pentagon on 9/11; He VA Tech Shooting)

    The country mourned Monday after learning about the mass shooting deaths at the Washington Navy Yard. For a few scary moments, Washington Redskins wide receiver Josh Morgan feared for his mother's safety. Morgan told reporters that his mom works on the same floor of the Navy Yard building where the shooting occurred, according to The Washington Post. Morgan, who grew up in the area, said he was unable to reach his mother after he learned of the shooting. Eventually Morgan confirmed through a Redskins spokesperson that his mother was safe. Before that happened, Morgan told reporters that he had a...

    *Caution!  Graphic picture belowSo I woke up the morning of 9/12/2012, to the sad news that one of our ambassadors to the Middle East, Christopher Stevens and his staff had been killed, and our embassy in Cairo had been breached. My first thought was, "What is the administration going to do about this?" My second thought was, "This should be an act of war (in Libya)!" I was sadly disappointed with their tepid response. Secretary of State Clinton had somewhat of an emotional response, but the President of the United States, Barack Hussein Obama, had the most weak-kneed, please...

    National Security: The Sept. 11 commission stated that our biggest failure was one of imagination. Imagine an Iranian nuclear device detonating high over the American heartland. They're working on it. On the same day the 9/11 Commission issued its report, another commission issued a report on a threat that could change our world and way of life in ways we can scarcely imagine. It is a real and credible threat, and it is largely being ignored. The threat is a phenomenon known as electromagnetic pulse, or EMP, and demonstrates why the issue of homeland security extends beyond the need for...

    "Even as I hope for some measure of peace and comfort to the bereaved families, I must also hope that we as a nation draw some measure of wisdom from this tragedy. Certain immediate lessons are clear, and we must act upon those lessons decisively. We need to step up security at our airports. We must reexamine the effectiveness of our intelligence networks. And we must be resolute in identifying the perpetrators of these heinous acts and dismantling their organizations of destruction. "We must also engage, however, in the more difficult task of understanding the sources of such madness. The...

    Late in the morning of the Tuesday that changed everything, Lt. Heather “Lucky” Penney was on a runway at Andrews Air Force Base and ready to fly. She had her hand on the throttle of an F-16 and she had her orders: Bring down United Airlines Flight 93. The day’s fourth hijacked airliner seemed to be hurtling toward Washington. Penney, one of the first two combat pilots in the air that morning, was told to stop it. The one thing she didn’t have as she roared into the crystalline sky was live ammunition. Or missiles. Or anything at all to...

    It is that time, the day we knew was coming, the date we did not need to mark on our calendars. What happened on that terrible Tuesday, Sept. 11, 2001, was a tragedy that profoundly affected us all. We stood motionless as we witnessed the unthinkable become reality. We gasped as we saw twin towers crumble, and we cried as we watched grown men weep. And then we gathered together, as communities and as a nation, to seek a collective consolation from those around us - our families, our friends, our colleagues. Theodore Roosevelt wrote that “Death is always, and...

    The bone-chilling wail of bagpipe playing "Amazing Grace" echoed through a Queens church yesterday as yet another fallen firefighter from the World Trade Center tragedy was memorialized in death. It was yet another day — of many more to come — for Masses and memorial services for both heroic rescue workers and innocent civilians lost in the flames and collapsing towers. At the memorial Mass for 49th Battalion Chief John Moran, his younger brother, Firefighter Michael Moran of Ladder 3, recalled how he spoke to his brother by cell phone after the second plane crashed into the Trade Center. "I ...

    US President Barack Obama on Tuesday played down prospects for a spectacular Al-Qaeda attack 10 years after the September 11th strikes, saying he worried more now about solitary extremists. "The most likely scenario that we have to guard against right now ends up being more of a lone wolf operation than a large, well coordinated terrorist attack," he told CNN television during a campaign-style swing through Iowa. "We still have to stay on top of it, though. We're never letting our guard now, that's part of our job," said Obama, who vowed "heightened" security measures and "extra vigilance" ahead of...

First responders will instead be asked back to the site at another day for a separate commemorative ceremony, city officials said.

    U.S. President George W. Bush listens as White House Chief of Staff Andrew Card informs him of a second plane hitting the World Trade Center, while Bush was conducting a reading seminar at the Emma E. Booker Elementary School in Sarasota, Florida. There has rarely been starker juxtaposition of evil and innocence than the moment President George W. Bush received the news about 9/11 while reading The Pet Goat with second-graders in Sarasota, Florida. Seven-year-olds can't understand what Islamic terrorism is all about. But they know when an adult's face is telling them something is very wrong — and none...
