On September 11, 2001—a clear, sunny, late summer day—al Qaeda terrorists aboard three hijacked passenger planes carried out coordinated suicide attacks against the World Trade Center in New York City and the Pentagon in Washington, D.C., killing everyone on board the planes and nearly 3,000 people on the ground. A fourth plane crashed into a field near Shanksville, Pennsylvania, killing all on board, after passengers and crew attempted to wrest control from the hijackers. Below is a chronology of the events of 9/11 as they unfolded. All times are Eastern Daylight Time (EDT).
• 7:59 am – American Airlines Flight 11, a Boeing 767 with 92 people aboard, takes off from Boston’s Logan International Airport en route to Los Angeles. read more
Democrat presumptive nominee for president Joe Biden announced that he would restore U.S. funding to the Palestinian Authority (PA) if elected.
Congress cut most of the U.S. tax payer-funded assistance to the Palestinian Authority due to its support for terror. The Palestinian Authority pays stipends to families of jailed or dead terrorists. The scale of the payments depends on how “successful” the terror attack was. read more
Today I discuss why Chinese president Xi-Jinping would choose to house a large population of those infected by the coronavirus in Hong Kong of all places, instead of a far safer quarantine zone, such as one of the many ghost cities in China.
I also discuss why the Palestinians have rejected the latest, more than generous offer of peace – one in which, for the first time, neighboring Muslim countries even support. read more
There was a State Funeral yesterday. One in which CNN reported: “Tehran’s streets were packed with black-clad mourners Monday as a sea of people turned out to pay their respects to Qasem Soleimani, the Iranian general killed by a US drone strike in Baghdad last week.”
“The mourners clutched photographs of Soleimani,” added an apparently sympathetic CNN, “a revered and powerful figure who headed the Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps elite Quds Force and led Iran’s overseas operations. Posters with his image, and a black backdrop, were plastered across the capital.”
And yes, CNN is correct. The streets of Tehran were completely clogged with people. How many were actual mourners is anyone’s guess.
In other words, how many “mourners” wanted to be elsewhere, but felt for their own safety and well-being, they had better show up and act the part of distraught supporters … or else.
I liken it to virtually all other evil dictatorial regimes, whose citizens are told where to be and how to act. read more
The Myth and Fraud That There Ever Was an Arab Country or People Called ‘Palestine’ (Part Two of Two)
As noted in the prior installment, the entire “Palestine” myth is built on one Big Lie after another. Recently, the New York Times even published an article asserting that Jesus was a “Palestinian Arab.” Having spread the Big Lie for so long — half a century — having defrauded so many gullible people and a new generation of campus ignoramuses to believe the Big Lie that there ever was any Arab country called “Palestine” and the concomitant Big Lie that there ever was an ancient Arab people called “The Palestinians,” they now have moved to the next phase: that Jesus supposedly was one. read more
The Myth and Fraud That There Ever Was an Arab Country or People Called ‘Palestine’ (Part 1)
n a recent Nazi outrage, Rashida Tlaib, Democrat Liar of Michigan, stated that the Holocaust has had a “calming” effect on her because the “Palestinians” “welcomed” the Jews into “their” land as a haven from Hitler. The Big Lie — in so many dimensions.
New to the fray, South Bend Mayor Buttigieg — an expert on world affairs though still unable to maintain civil equanimity in his own city where African Americans are furious over a recent police shooting — has announced that, if Israel ever extends sovereignty into any part of Judea or Samaria, he will cut off aid to Israel accordingly if he is elected President. Others on the same bandwagon: Robert O’Rourke, a Scottish-Irish skateboarder best known for break-ins, drunk driving, computer hacking, faking Hispanic heritage, and having his ear hairs cut. Bernie Sanders, an American Communist. What these and their ilk all have in common is that they each see nothing anti-Semitic in anything that Ilhan Abdullahi Omar or Rashida Tlaib has written or spoken, but they are unable to tolerate Jewish life in Judea and Samaria. read more
Well it’s about damn time! To me, this smelled like a set-up for the get go and that Chief Gallagher was being railroaded. You don’t get to spend as many years on the teams as did Gallagher by being an impetuous dumb-ass. For nine long months the Chief was locked away, treated as if he was already found guilty. But justice finally prevailed.
from the Washington Examiner:
Jury finds Navy SEAL Eddie Gallagher not guilty of war crimes
The jury assigned to the case of accused Special Warfare Chief Edward Gallagher has found the decorated Navy SEAL not guilty of murder and attempted murder after a whirlwind trial that included bombshell revelations and twists. read more
Watching and listening to our two Muslim Congresswomen, Ilhan Omar and Rashida Tlaib, I can’t help but recall the Muslim Brotherhood’s five step program to dominate the United States.
Yes, the Muslim Brotherhood, the originator of modern-day terrorism, from which all modern Islamic terror was born, has a five step program, or strategic plan, to take over Western nations, including the United States, and subjugate all its citizens, for all to submit to Sharia law.
Many may think this sounds far-fetched, but just read on and then decide for yourself. And don’t blame the messenger. I didn’t concoct this plan.
The plan is called “Civilization Jihad.” This five-step (or phase) plan was crafted by Mohammed Akram, a senior Hamas leader in the United States and board member of the Muslim Brotherhood of North America, and approved by its Shura Council in 1987.
For several years, the country of Iran has been the number one State sponsor of terrorism worldwide, according the U.S. State Department.
In September 2018, ALJAZEERA, yes aljazeera, reported that, “Nathan Sales, the [State] department’s coordinator for counterterrorism, said Iran-linked fundraising networks in West Africa, weapons caches in South America, and operational activity in Europe show the Islamic Republic ‘has no reservations about using [terrorism] on any continent.'”
“Iran remains the world’s leading state sponsor of terrorism and is responsible for intensifying multiple conflicts and undermining US interests in Syria, Yemen, Iraq, Bahrain, Afghanistan and Lebanon,” Sales told reporters.
In other words, they are bad news and remain an enemy of the United States and our allies.
Yet, just recently, in Houston Texas, school children were seen singing a song, praising Iran, its supreme leader Ali Khamenei, and pledging their support and loyalty, not to our president or the country they reside in, but to Iran and to leader Khamenei. read more
