Sept. 11, 200!: Nineteen Years ago today

The terrorist attacks on September 11, 2001, were the deadliest attacks on U.S. soil since the December 7, 1941 Japanese stealth “kamikaze” bombing attack of our Pacific fleet in Pearl Harbor that launched the United States into World War II.

Nineteen years ago today, 2,973 people were murdered by 19 Muslim fundamentalist Al-Qaeda terrorists (photos) who commandeered commercial airliners and, like their kamikaze predecessors, flew them into the World Trade Center Twin Towers in New York City and into the Pentagon, incinerating themselves as they massacred innocent workers. The death toll includes 40 passengers and crew members aboard the fourth hijacked plane, United 93, which crashed in a field near Shanksville, Pennsylvania, as courageous passengers stormed the cockpit which had been taken over by the terrorists. Many of them, here on over-stayed student visas, had taken flight training to prepare them for their deadly mission.

Today will mark President Trump’s second time observing the 9/11 anniversary at the Flight 93 National Memorial, where he spoke in 2018. He appeared this morning with First Lady Melania Trump. Vice President Mike Pence spoke at ground zero, the site of the twin towers, now marked by double beams of light.

The COVID pandemic has impacted integral parts of the NYC memorial. Names of the victims were pre-recorded, rather than read on-site by family members.

This is the live 9/11/01 footage from ‘The Today Show’ on NBC as the massacre initially unfolded on air. The show begins with a perfunctory interview about Howard Hughes (which can be scrolled past) when harsh realities eclipsed the chatter. (The clip contains commercials.)

In 2009, just a few short years after the murderous attacks, The American Spectator wrote “Obama’s plan to desecrate 9/11,” by rebranding and sanitizing it into a “National Day of Volunteerism,” obliterating any connection to Muslim murderous hijackers.

We should never forget or obscure what this day commemorates.

    Ask anyone under 30 about Sept. 11th and it’s a good bet they have no knowledge of what actually took place. Our youth are ignorant about the facts because political correctness has invaded our taxpayer funded schools. It would be considered an outrage to say the perpetrators were all Muslim.

      Parents need to supplement the limited instruction on most topics in public schools, but most are “too busy” or have limited knowledge themselves. We are ripe for takeover as the recent Socialist/Antifa arsonist and looting mobs have demonstrated in city after city throughout America. They are using BLM as a mantra, but that’s not their focus. Destroying America is what they are all about. They have no concept of the evils and failures of Socialism. Thank their teachers.

        Every teacher I know, and there are many in my family, are all Democrats, and not the brightest bulbs in the chandelier. My sister freely admits she went into teaching for the many lengthy holidays and summers off. No other job offers those perks. Regardless of what they say, they are not underpaid. As it’s been noted here before, they work part-time jobs and as a group pay $millions in union dues that are then donated to democrat candidates nationwide.

      A story that is, for the most part, unknown outside of the tri-state area:

      The number of folks who came forward with their boats to assist people off the island.

    Amen, Seeing Red.

    Obama, aka MMB, is the worst person in American history. Erasing the Muslim connection is evil and consistent with this piece of excrement’s hatred of America as founded, white people, Israel and Great Britain.

    On September 11, 2011:
    *Michelle* Obama leans over to the man they call Barack and says,
    “All this for a damn flag”, and BHO turns his head slightly towards *Michelle* and smirks and nods in agreement.

    Now, when this made the rounds, their clean-up crew went to work and had “experts” agree that MOe said ‘I wonder if they flew that flag’, which would make no sense and would not elicit that response from BHO.

    Remember, from *her* own mouth she stated that *she* had never been proud of this country until—well, you remember.

    YOU BE THE JUDGE (And also remember that these two were never totally alone when they were in public. He’s not the only one with Big Ears.)

    The effing Bush crime family.

    Very convenient that GWB was in a classroom in FL listening to children read. You can find the footage of his aide whispering in his ear, and the smirk that was plastered across his face.

    Did you know that Daddy GHWB was just hanging at the WH that day, arriving well before the tragedies?
