    House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) on Tuesday admitted that she does not know the content of Rep. Ilhan Omar’s (D-MN) recent remarks about 9/11 — despite offering a full-throated defense of the freshman congresswoman in the wake of criticism from President Donald Trump.(LINK) Nancy Pelosi: 'We have no taint' of anti-Semitism “I don’t think the congresswoman is anti-Semitic. I wouldn’t even put those in the same category,” Pelosi told interviewer Christiane Amanpour in Ireland. “We have no taint of that [anti-Semitism],” she added. “And just because they want to accuse somebody of that doesn’t mean that we take that bait.”Pelosi...
  • Christiane Amanpour Rants Against Trump 'Regime' After Iran Deal Decision

    05/08/2018 1:49:17 PM PDT · by jazusamo · 61 replies ^ | May 8, 2018 | Cortney O'Brien
    CNN's Christiane Amanpour, who was just announced as Charlie Rose's replacement on PBS after he was fired over sexual assault allegations, was quick to denounce the Trump administration for its decision to withdraw from the Iranian nuclear deal Tuesday. "This is the regime change crew," she said on CNN. "They're back in town. They're ascendant." Some of the newest members of Trump's national security team include National Security Advisor John Bolton, who has often been criticized as too hawkish, and new Secretary of State Mike Pompeo. Speaking from the White House, Trump announced the U.S. would be leaving the...

    President Obama made his fourth trip to Saudi Arabia Wednesday, ostensibly to “clear the air” in an attempt to repair the damaged relationship with the Kingdom brought about by what many will regard as his administration’s mistakes — cozying up to the Islamic Republic of Iran, for example, and embracing the Arab Spring which toppled the Saudi ally Hosni Mubarak in Egypt. But perhaps the biggest mistake Obama has made with regard to the Saudis is the one they’ll likely thank him for; namely, opposing — and threatening to veto — a bill authored by Sens. John Cornyn and Chuck...

    Freedom Outpost ^ | September 11, 2014 | William Federer
    In 1565, Sultan Suleiman the Magnificent dominated the Mediterranean, with intentions of not only taking Sicily, Sardinia, Majorca, and southern Spain, but Rome itself. The only thing standing in his way was the small rocky island of Malta just south of Sicily, defended by the Knights of Malta. In March of 1565, Sultan Suleiman the Magnificent sent Algerian Admiral Dragut to Malta with 200 ships and 40,000 Muslim soldiers, including 6,500 elite Janissary troops. .... Queen Elizabeth I of England is said to have remarked: "If the Turks should prevail against the Isle of Malta, it is uncertain what further...

    Megyn Kelly tonight brought viewers the first part of her contentious showdown with Professor Ward Churchill, best known for his controversial comments about the “little Eichmanns” who were in the World Trade Center when the planes hit on September 11th. ... Churchill stood by the Eichmann comment, saying, “You do not have to be the one who turned on the gas if you’re making it possible for the gas to be there.”

    On September 11th, Americans remember a scene of gore, the Twin Towers being hit by planes and then crumbling down with countless human beings being crushed and ripped to pieces alongside the debris, and people jumping off buildings. On the same month of September — September 8th to be exact — the people of the small island of Malta celebrate how their country, in 1565, fought under the knight Jean Parisot de Valette and the religious Order of the Knights of St. John, and defeated the Muslims and their leader Sulaiman who were trying to conquer the Christians and reduce...

    This is what passes for education at Tulane. Only costs $22,620 a year in tuition per semester to expose your kids to this kind of enlightenment. She’s wicked smaht. We’re paranoid as a country, dontcha know. We’ve got to have somebody dark to hate. But lefties like Melissa Harris Perry aren’t haters – they just think we need to soak the rich because they’re all bad. And that’s not the same thing at all. We declared war on Sikhs after 9/11. Did you know that? Some 83 percent of Sikhs live in India, and 72 percent of them live in...

    An effort of imagination is required to accept that people will kill you for no better reason than that you are who you are, and not because of anything you might have done. Of course Hitler and Stalin ordered the killing of millions on just these grounds, and many lives were lost in order to remedy the consequent breakdown in civilization. September 11 heralds another such breakdown, and it too will be hard to remedy.

    Washington Times ^ | July 7, 2011 | Michael Burke
    What Americans have not been told is that this “memorial” will remake Ground Zero so that it does not acknowledge 9/11. Instead of acting as a constant reminder of the attacks, a symbol for us and future generations of the evil that struck, the death and destruction it caused and the heroism and sacrifice in response, the memorial will wipe out all evidence and memory of the attacks. ...The cause of “these deaths,” how these people came to be absent - that is, 9/11 - has been deemed irrelevant and even contrary to your memorial “experience.” .

  • End of Ramadan Celebrations Canceled, Downgraded

    Muslims Tone Down Eid, a Holiday Falling on Anniversary of 9/11 Terrorist Attacks More than 8,000 people poured through the Muslim Community Center in Silver Spring, Md., this morning in shifts for prayer and worship in celebration of Eid ul-Fitr – a celebration marking the end of a month of Ramadan fasting. Clothed in colorful, embroidered robes, families from Washington, D.C., Virginia and Maryland cheerfully greeted each other, and later, in unison chanted songs of thanksgiving to Allah. Joyful as they were, Muslims across the country consciously made this Eid celebration somewhat somber to show respect. The date of the...

    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...

The official language is really quite lovely: Our mission is to honor the victims of 9/11 and those who rose to service in response to the attacks by encouraging all Americans and others throughout the world to pledge to perform at least one good deed or other service activity on 9/11 each year. In this way we hope to create a lasting and forward-looking legacy...

    Yesterday, it was reported that a victim of the 2001 attack on the World Trade Center by Islamic jihadists was positively identified, seven and a half years after his death: The city medical examiner's office says 54-year-old Manuel Emilio Mejia has been identified from remains found at the World Trade Center site in the months after the 2001 terrorist attack. Mejia was a kitchen worker at Windows on the World, the restaurant on top of the trade center's north tower. Manuel Emilio Mejia was the 1,624th victim to be identified. More than 1,100 others still have not been positively identified....

    Conspiciously absent from September 11th memorial service, the Obama campaign claimed Michelle Obama was home with her children for the 1st week of school. However, on Sep. 10th, she spent most of the day at a "Working Mothers" roundtable in Fishers, Indiana (a 3.5 hour drive from Chicago). FISHERS, Ind. — More evidence Indiana is in play this presidential election year: the Obama campaign focused on the state again Wednesday. This time it was Michelle Obama, right in the heart of Republican territory.
