It’s No Longer the “Freedom Tower”…Really.
The Port Authority of New York announced this week they are changing the name of the “Freedom Tower” to “One World Trade Center.” Apparently they believe the name was hurting marketing efforts to fully lease the building. http://townhall.com/blog/g/04803b1e-da10-4ce6-b61e-96e45c0574ba The terrorists have won. If the Port Authority of New York…which lost so many of its own police officers in 9/11…can’t stand up for principle and honor, | Read More »
Obama Secretly Ends Program that Let Pilots Carry Guns
“After the September 11 attacks, commercial airline pilots were allowed to carry guns if they completed a federal-safety program. No longer would unarmed pilots be defenseless as remorseless hijackers seized control of aircraft and rammed them into buildings. “Now President Obama is quietly ending the federal firearms program, risking public safety on airlines in the name of an anti-gun ideology.” More –> Source: Washington Times
Greg Gutfield has exposed the 9/11 Conspiracy once and for all!
And – of course! – it’s in the last place you’d look: Here’s how my very simple theory works: the common 9/11 truthers are – as a rule – unemployed, living at home, and nutritionally deficient due to a vigorously vegan diet. This gave them the free time, as well the depressed hostility (due to lack of animal protein) needed to plan the attacks. After | Read More »
Greenwald’s Counter-Terrorism Illogic
I’ve stayed away from reading the sock puppet for awhile. Too bad, too, since I missed a gem that he put out last Friday called “Counter-terrorism logic“. For a guy who is believed by the lefties to be all-knowing, Greenwald manages to set up straw man arguments as if they were dominoes lined up to be knocked down in one push. He starts out with | Read More »
Liberals Redefining Patriotism?
Not long after 9/11, President George W. Bush made famous his phrase “You’re either with us or against us in the fight against terror.” He was making those remarks towards foreign governments who were known to have had assisted Islamist terrorists, most notably Iran, Iraq, Syria, and Libya. Bush was helping to rally the country for the long fight ahead, trying to ratchet up the | Read More »
So Long, And Thanks For All The Fish
Eight years ago, on inauguration day, I watched the festivities in my office as I tried out a new exercise bike. We had considered going to Washington for the ceremony as I had worked on the campaign, but my husband had a business trip to Chile and I didn’t want to go alone. So there I was riding that bike. I wasn’t in great shape | Read More »
In a month or so, Obama has suggested we close Guantanamo for prisoners. Few care any longer, and this administration won’t complete any prosecutions. But <a href=”http://www.guardian.co.uk/world/2008/dec/08/september-11-confessions”>a few prisoners recently confessed.</a> No more trials for them. What about sentencing? It would be only fair to kick the bucket even further down the road, and ask respected Muslim scholars or Qazi (judges) to suggest sentencing and | Read More »
Is a terrorist attack on America imminent?
As I type, the death toll in the Mumbai attacks stands at 195 souls. The Mumbai terrorists have raised the stakes with these attacks, using well trained and coordinated attack teams to carry out their bloody mission. As Bill Roggio writes: The Mumbai attack is unique from past terror strikes carried out by Islamic terrorists. Instead of one or more bombings at distinct sites, the | Read More »
Turnout defeats Democrat default crisis generator
Originally published by Mike “gamecock” DeVine as Legal Editor for The Minority Report Admit it now, what good were all the pre-election polls, poll obsessing and/or personal predictions for the past 23 months? None, unless your goal was to suppress GOP turnout, elect Farrakhan’s Messiah or keep alive a nerdy desire to give one’s life five seconds of meaning by being “right” in a guess | Read More »

Can we afford an upcoming Obama “$urrender doctrine/dividend?”
October 2008, Joe Biden: “Mark my words. It will not be six months before the world tests Barack Obama like they did John Kennedy. The world is looking… Watch, we’re going to have an international crisis, a generated crisis, to test the mettle of this guy.” Suggested RNC reply Ad (YouTube) at end of this article. Frankly, depending on the crisis and where it occurs, | Read More »

A Personal Odyssey
I was once a liberal. Scratch that. I was once an ultra-liberal raving lunatic who read too much Chomsky and Zinn. I wore Che t-shirts and sported a shiny, red card that proclaimed me a member of the Communist Party USA. I had dreadlocks, smoked pot, and used terms like “wingnut,” “American imperalism,” and “a foreign policy based upon capitalistic greed, Christian fundamentalist tyranny, and | Read More »
September 11th for Demmies
Graphic Posted at DailyKos “All this 9/11 worship is ghoulish and downright silly” So says a blogger from Daily Kos, along with the graphic seen here, in a disturbing thread (via Ace) which has since been redacted by the Kossak powers-that-be. You would think posting this graphic would have the blogger roundly condemned, and you would, of course, be wrong. Fellow commenters provided a split | Read More »

Seven Years Ago Today, I Became An American
Promoted by absentee (I write this after midnight due to RL issues, but I did want to get this down.) Seven years ago today, on September 11, 2001, I became an American. There was no swearing-in ceremony. There was no recitation of the pledge of allegiance to my new country. No judge in black robes. All of those things had already happened five years earlier. | Read More »
