Where I Was On September 11
Until September 11, 2001, I worked in the World Trade Center, halfway up Tower One. I wasn’t doing political blogging at the time, but was writing “the Baseball Crank” as a weekly baseball column for the online edition of the Providence (R.I.) Journal. Here’s my account of that day, written for ProJo two days later while it was all still fresh. We run this every | Read More »

Do Not Be Fearful About September 11th
I have been inundated with emails, texts, and the like from friends regarding September 11th. Am I going to withdraw money from the bank? Will I stock up on food? What about filling my car up with gas? Is something going to happen? No. No. No. And I don’t know. There is nothing wrong with being prepared. But there is a lot wrong with worrying | Read More »
Nine Days, Mr. President
Well thank goodness. Naked and semi-naked pictures of celebrities like Jennifer Lawrence have been put online by hackers who hacked the celebrities’ online accounts. No doubt the very same hackers celebrate Edward Snowden and hate the NSA snooping. The upside of the celebrity nudity being put online is that the White House staff can rest easy. They will have something to blame should there be | Read More »
When America Fell from Grace
For the past forty-plus years, America has slowly and steadily declined as a nation and a world power, thanks to the rise and growth of the naïve progressive ideology that promotes the hobbling of American power projection. As a subset of this ideology, American influence has been hijacked. In its place are social justice programs and anti-colonial measures that victimize takers and demonize makers. For | Read More »

Majority say Obama admin knowingly lied about Benghazi terrorist attacks
A new Fox News poll finds that 51 percent think that Obama administration “knowingly lied” about the September 11, 2012 terrorist attacks on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi, Libya “to help the President Obama during his re-election campaign” against Mitt Romney. The poll also found that 54 percent think Obama’s administration “tried to deceive” the American people about the events surrounding the Benghazi terrorist attacks. | Read More »
Libya: Obama’s other foreign-policy disaster
The Weekly Standard offers a glum assessment of Obama’s fiasco in Syria: “With the Russian proposal on Syrian chemical weapons, the United States is being escorted out of the Middle East.” Reset with Russia was originally a strategic priority for the Obama administration because it saw Moscow as the key to getting Iran to come to the negotiating table. Putin, from the White House’s perspective, was destined | Read More »
Never Forget: Why bikers are descending on DC on 9/11 to Counter-Protest the Million Muslim March
On September 11, 2001, I boarded a flight from Newark to Dallas. Although on a different airline, I left from the same terminal at around the same time as Flight 93.
Four hours later, when we were grounded in Memphis told about the terrorist attacks in New York and Washington, I knew the Twin Towers had come down via cell phone but did not fully grasp what was told to me until we got off the plane and saw the CNN footage on a television in the terminal.
Though it’s been 12 years next month, like most Americans, September 11th is a day that I will never forget. In the months that followed September 11th, for the briefest of moments, our nation was united as one people, one party–all American.

Call for Vengeance
The most recent acts of jihad against the United States should obliterate any lingering reluctance to admit the Islamic war against the United States of America. Double-talking Mohamadans and traitorous apologists for Islam inside American borders have spent the past eleven years since the jihadist attacks on the eleventh of September of 2001 obfuscating and lying about the inherent malignancy of Islam and its enmity | Read More »

11 years later, future terrorists and the U.S. Embassy remind us how NOT to behave
Frankly, there’s not much I can say about this. These are the people who attacked us 11 years ago today, and we clearly have not learned 2 lessons in that time: first, their grievances are bulls*** – nothing more than hastily fabricated excuses to riot. One day it’s an offensive movie, the next day it’s U.S. troops in the Arabian Peninsula. They’re not concerned with | Read More »

A True American Hero – Marcus Flagg
Marcus “Marc” Flagg is a hero to me. I have met a few extraordinary people in my life during my time on Capitol Hill, but Marc stands out. He was a victim on September 11, 2001, yet he was not defeated by the terrorists who attacked the United States. He worked through the political system to solve one of the problems that caused 9/11. You see, Marc lost | Read More »
