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 »
Boatlifters: The unknown story of 9/11
Much has been written and said about September 11, 2001, on the occasion of its 10th anniversary, but one story much less known is the one about the band of boats that came together to rescue nearly 500,000 New Yorkers from the World Trade Center site on the day the towers collapsed. http://fredcox4utah.blogspot.com/2011/09/boatlifters-unknown-story-of-911.html 12 minutes worth watching.
Hate-Filled Former 9/11 Hero Becomes a Pawn of the Wisconsin Left. How Will Republicans Respond?
As Ann Coulter extensively discussed in her hit books Godless and Guilty, one of liberals’ favorite tricks is to have their lies parroted by spokesmen who their opponents will be too scared to hit back against properly (if at all), for fear of being seen as “mean” toward a victim or national hero. Now, the forces allied against Republican Gov. Scott Walker’s budget repair efforts | Read More »

Special Forces Take Out Osama Bin Laden.
This is great news, for a number of very good reasons. The Blighted One will probably try and take credit for the manhunt that was initiated by Obama’s much-maligned predecessor, George Bush. The truth is, and don’t let any of the BS we’re about to hear blasted across the airwaves fool you, that this is the culmination of a manhunt that began on September 11, | Read More »
Driver’s License Renewal and the REAL ID Act
Barely a year into Florida’s enforcement of the federal Real ID Act of 2005, an act that requires multiple pieces of identification to renew or obtain an original driver’s license or state identification card, the law continues to confuse people. In response to the 9-11 terrorist attacks that killed more than 5,000 people at the World Trade Center in New York City, the Pentagon in | Read More »
New Ground Zero Mosque Imam has Radical Ties
After dominating the headlines in the run up to the November elections, the controversy over a proposed thirteen-story Islamic cultural center and mosque to be located two blocks from Ground Zero in lower Manhattan has largely abated. Last week, however, the developers of Park 51, as the project is known, suddenly announced that the controversial imam who had been the chief public proponent of the | Read More »
Since 9/11, evolving terrorist threat challenges homeland security
My article recently appeared in the Daily Caller: www.dailycaller.com Since the terror attacks of September 11, 2001, the United States has employed both conventional and unorthodox means to counter the threat of additional assaults on the American homeland. While these strategies have been largely successful in thwarting further attacks of the magnitude or scope of 9/11, the dangers of a strike nonetheless remain. As the | Read More »

My 9/11/2001 Story And Beyond
Everyone has their story. Where they were and what they did on September 11th, 2001. My story isn’t very exciting really. In fact, I would call it boring. However my life would be effected by those events of that day in ways I could never imagine.
Where Were You….. ?
It has become a cliché over the years, one that is still frequently heard. “Where were you when you heard that President Kennedy had been shot?” As time goes on, the answer will more often be along the lines that the interviewee was too young to remember, or that they were not even born yet. A far more recent variation of the question, one that | Read More »
911 Mosque Location, Sharia Law are Political
In the United states a priest or a pastor of a church can not give a sermon endorsing a particular candidate or political party. If he does, the church can loose its tax exempt status. This is because in endorsing a candidate or political party, the priest or pastor leaves the realm of religion/spirituality and crosses into the realm of politics. Political speech is not | Read More »
Liberalism and Diversity
Given the reinvigorated immigration debate, coupled with the plans to build a Mosque at ground zero in New York, there exists a need to attempt to understand the primitive thinking of the liberal mind concerning diversity and its implementation. Diversity, by the nature of its definition, does not lead to harmony in and of itself. It takes an extra ingredient to glue the pieces together. | Read More »
World Trade Center Disaster
Steven’s latest is awesome.
You know what would be great ?…… A huge new mosque in NYC right next to The WTC.
Huh ? Whaddya mean ‘a mosque is already there’ ? Look at what ? Whoa. http://www.hudsonny.org/2009/12/mosque-at-the-world-trade-center-muslim-renewal-or-insult-near-ground-zero.php At the moment the building, the old Burlington Coat Factory, already serves as a mini-mosque: an iron grill lifts every Friday afternoon for a little known Imam leading prayers a few yards away from where Osama Bin Laden’s airborne Islamist bombers killed nearly 3000 people back in 2001.
