    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TPfrtngwzjY Written right after hearing fireman Mike Moran, at the Concert for New York, tell Osama bin Laden to "Kiss my royal Irish ass." Chris Storc saw it, worked with me to tweek it, and he got together the group to sing it. The tune was sent to Hannity, he played it on the air, and said he had 5,000 requests for it. Mike lost his older brother, Battalion Commander and FReeper John Moran on 9/11. I had the pleasure of meeting Mike and some FReepers at a New York Irish pub a year or so later to hoist a...

    I’m still worried about all my friends in Florida and Georgia, and pray no harm has come to anyone.But now, because it is 9/11, and because it has been 16 years since Islam rained terror on our country I am reposting my grim annual reminder of what we are facing. Because already there is an upcoming generation that has no concept of the pure evil manifested that day because their teachers are not allowed to name the evil, their parents don’t want to be called Islamophobic and the Deep State Media won’t mention it’s name. In fact the entire left...
  • Senate votes to support Trump's weapons sale to Saudi Arabia

    The Wichita Eagle ^ | June 13, 2017 | Richard Lardner, The Associated Press
    The Senate on Tuesday narrowly turned back a bipartisan bid to rebuke Saudi Arabia and reject President Donald Trump's plan to sell the kingdom more than $500 million in precision-guided munitions, sparing the new Republican administration an embarrassing defeat. The vote Tuesday was 53-47, clearing the way for the sale to be finalized. The precision munitions are part of Trump's proposed $110 billion arms package to Riyadh, which the administration said would create U.S. jobs while also improving a key ally's military capability. But opponents of the deal, led by Sens. Rand Paul, R-Ky., and Chris Murphy, D-Conn., have been...

    Mzoudi was a liaison to al Qaeda, witness said. A man claiming to be a former Iranian spy testified Friday that Abdelghani Mzoudi, the second man to be tried for an alleged role in the Sept. 11 attacks, was involved in the preparations to hit the World Trade Center. The witness, who goes by the alias Hamid Reza Zakeri, took the stand at the Hanseatic Higher Regional Court in Hamburg and claimed that Mzoudi, was "responsible for part of the organization" of the suicide attacks that destroyed the twin towers in New York and damaged the Pentagon. Zakeri testified Mzoudi...

    CNN is one of those ubiquitous aspects of the American soundscape which I’ve always looked upon as part of our gradual cultural decline. Whether you’re in a dentist’s waiting room, or simply passing by a restaurant on your way home-as I was this weekend-you can’t help but overhear one of that network’s correspondents, news anchors or hosts do their best KCNA imitation. The fact that so many millions of Americans unconsciously imbibe its propaganda on a daily basis merely illustrates how difficult it will be to craft a counter-narrative to the open borders, liberal interventionist propaganda which shapes our government’s...

    Almost 55 months after confessing felonious conduct, Teamster money-laundering scandal figure, Jere Nash, has finally been sentenced. U.S. Dist. Judge Thomas P. Griesa (S.D.N.Y., Nixon) sentenced Nash Apr. 9 to a mere two years probation for his role in a series of schemes which lead to the embezzlement of some $885,000 from the Int'l Bhd. of Teamsters' treasury and to $538,100 in illegal campaign contributions to the failed reelection campaign of expelled IBT president Ron Carey. The sentencing appears to have been hush hush: the four N.Y.C. major dailies and the two Washington, D.C., dailies apparently did not cover the...

    It was one of the most memorable moments of the night: Donald Trump defended his “New York values” with a calm, forceful, deeply personal reflection on what it was like to be a New Yorker after the 9/11 attacks. That moment showed just how far Trump has come as a candidate, revealing a style that was more purposeful statesman than bombastic showman. ...... Instead, Trump explained himself and his city. “When the World Trade Center came down, I saw something that no place on Earth could have handled more beautifully, more humanely than New York,” Trump said to warm applause,...

Michael Borders, Marcy Borders' brother, said in a Facebook post at 11:22 a.m. yesterday that he needed everyone to pray for her, before posting about 12 hours later: "I can't believe my sister is gone."

    Many remember the haunting photograph: A woman wearing business attire and pearls is covered head-to-toe in white dust, her hands held out helplessly before her, as she makes her way out of the World Trade Center's damaged North Tower on September 11, 2001. She survived that day, getting out before both towers of the trade center crumbled and killed 2,753 people in the deadliest terror attack on U.S. soil. But the woman in the photos, known to most as the "Dust Lady," died Tuesday, her family said. Marcy Borders was 42.

  • The World Trade Center Has A New, Very Confusing Logo

    The World Trade Center Has A New, Very Confusing Logo Cramming in a mind-melting series of visual allusions, the $3 million WTC logo is also an ad. The World Trade Center has a new logo. Part of a $3.57 million branding endeavor, it's a riff on space and negative space, presence, and absence. It’s like a Rubin vase test, playing tricks on the eye and asking viewers to see what they want to see. Which would almost be poetic if not for the fact that it could also be read as an ad for a luxury shopping mall. To be...
