September 11, 2001: Have we already forgotten?


Shameful actions of NFL players need to be dealt with — by vanishing fans

 Each year we commemorate the unspeakable horrors that shook America to her core on the clear autumn morning fifteen years ago today. Nearly 3,000 people were murdered by 19 Islamic terrorists in the U.S. on expired visas who commandeered two commercial airliners and flew them into the World Trade Center Twin Towers in New York City. A third flew into the Pentagon. The death toll included 40 passengers and crew members aboard the fourth hijacked plane, United 93, which crashed in a field near Shanksville, Pennsylvania, as courageous passengers rushed the cockpit. Along with our American citizens, people from 90 other countries were massacred in the attacks.

We also remember the orchestrated attack on the U.S. Embassy in Benghazi on Sept. 11, 2012 — resulting in the deaths of Ambassador Christopher Stevens, Ty Woods, Sean Smith and Glen Doherty, which then-Secretary of State attempted to blame on a “spontaneous event” following a fabricated video defaming Muhammad.

In 2009, Army Major and Fort Hood psychiatrist, Dr. Nidal Hasan, who refers to himself as a “soldier of Allah” opened gunfire on the base killing 14 (including an unborn baby) and wounding more than 30 others. Though Hasan called out “Allahu Akbar!“ (Allah is greater) the Obama administration refused to acknowledge the terrorist aspect, foolishly referring to the murders as “workplace violence.”

The 2013 Boston Marathon bombings that maimed and killed innocents on a spring morning were perpetrated by Chechen immigrant brothers motivated by extremist Islamic beliefs.

In 2014 depraved decapitations of American journalists James Foley and Steven Sotloff shook our sensibilities —- as was the intent via the grotesque videos posted by the jihadist executioners. These victims followed Daniel Pearl, a Wall Street Journal reporter savagely executed in the same manner in 2002. In the intervening years, other Americans have met that grisly fate. 

During 2015 the civilized world  witnessed mass beheadings and the burning alive of a caged Jordanian pilot. Some of the beheadings were carried out by children under the guidance of their own fathers, indoctrinating depravity in the name of Allah.

The perpetrators of these unspeakably evil acts are fanatical and murderous international thugs who literally follow the Quran’s 47:4 directive to “strike the necks” of unbelievers. Obviously, ISIS represents the worst of Islam, but few American Muslims raise their voices against either the butchery or the threats of devastation to our homeland and inflicting havoc on American cities.

Yet Americans have witnessed the Obama administration’s capitulation to the terror sponsoring regime of Iran by accelerating their nuclear capabilities. At the same time we are fed distorted intelligence reports giving a glossier version of U.S. progress against al Qaeda and the Islamic State — foolishly referred to as a “JV team” by Obama —  than is reflected by reality. Fortunately our Constitution ensures presidential term limits.

What there are no term limits on is ignorance. As Americans commemorate the victims of the September 11, 2001 depravity, overpaid NFL football players, with no real concept of how fortunate they are to be Americans or what the day represents, are using the somber occasion to stage protests by refusing to stand for our national anthem in a show of solidarity with the BLM movement that was founded in the lie of “Hands up, don’t shoot!”  The fallacious charge of racial inequality is also exemplified by the preponderance of black players with $ multimillion contacts, though there are no protests from the white minority players.

If the planned protests go foreword, patriotic Americans should stage their own demonstrations and boycott the teams. The old line money talks and BS walks applies in this instance. Constitutional lawyer, author and talk show host Mark Levin makes the case — covered by CNS News — that this is not a freedom of speech issue.

    High school football players are now showing their ignorance.
    The following high school football teams have been photographed with at least some of their players refusing to stand for the National Anthem:

    Lincoln Southeast high school in LIncoln, Nebraska
    Waggener high school in Louisville, KY
    Auburn high school in Rockford, Illinois
    (story and photos on

    Meanwhile, here is the story on HIllary’s medical episode at Ground Zero this morning:

    Her staff reports that she was taken to Chelsea’s 10 million dollar mega apartment in a highly secure building, where HIll is “resting”. (shorthand for ‘receiving medical care off the record’)
    Look at her photo from this morning. Seven days of bad weather.

    Obama is not going to leave the w.h.
    If there is an election—and that’s a very big IF—–it will be rigged.

      The foolish high schoolers you describe have been taught by unionist, Obama supporting, liberal teachers who don’t prioritize instilling a sense f patriotism in the students they propagandize each day. This campaign ad explains the sgernda of the teachers and their union objectives very well.

      Saguaro Sam…that last statement in your post…I don’t have a lot of “fear” in me but…I DO fear that your last statement may very well be correct.

      …whatta’ freekin’ drag! I just wanted to raise my kids & ride my Trike…dammit….but NNNNOOOOO!!! Now we gotta’ deal with THIS horse-pucky….

    Colin Kaepernick has led a charmed life. His white teenage mother, abandoned by her black boyfriend when he learned of her pregnancy, didn’t take the easy way out and abort him, but carried him to term and gave him life. He refuses to meet her and his young half brother who worships him. His adoptive family, also white, loved him, raised him with their two biological children and gave him every opportunity to succeed. He has become a multimillionaire football player through the mostly white ticket buyers who have cheered him on with the 49ers. Identifying with black militants and refusing to honor the USA during the playing of our national anthem is his right, although an insulting path to take. We should repay him in kind, as is our right. I’m a die hard fan, but a proud American first. This is a bridge too far for me. I’ll pass on this punk.

    This morning, at precisely the time when the first plane flew into the first tower 15 years ago, a letter was hand-delivered to Trump Tower in NYC.

    This is a must read:

    I don’t see any of the spoiled rotten selfish self loving NFL football players running to a communist country to kneel or raise their fists. Why?? Because if they protested they would be in prison and probably beaten for years. Easy to protest here but would they be so ” brave ” when it was life or death??? That would be a big NO.
    May God bless those who serve in the military and those who continue to fight for freedom with Honor and Integrity.

      I stand right beside you, Kathy! “Mr. Green Bay Packers” fan here will NOT be watching NFL ball this year until something is done about this blatant slap in our faces!
