Twenty Years Gone

There is very little I can add concerning the September 11th attacks, because after twenty years there is nothing left to add. I would suggest we never forget and never forgive.

I guess there is one thing I could add; the Biden administration has not vetted any of the Afghanis who were lucky enough to get on a plane to America. The logical result of this debacle will likely lead to more terror attacks here and likely another massive 9/11 terror attack. I hope I am wrong, but I’m not.

A Billion Reasons To Build A Wall

The Pentagon of all places has found almost $13 billion in unused funds which can be put toward the border wall.

The Department of Defense has released a 20-page spreadsheet of military projects that have more funds than needed, which means adds up to $12.8 billion for President Donald Trump’s border wall.

From The Washington Examiner: The Pentagon’s list said it has found possible funding sources that are “in excess of the amount needed.” But it’s not clear which projects the Defense Department will draw from. Some states that have been allocated big chunks of money that haven’t been spent could see a hit.

California, for example, was identified as having more than $700 million in unused Army and Navy military construction that could be used. Hawaii has more than $400 million that could be used.

More than $200 million in similar funding allocated for Hawaii, Maine, New York, North Carolina, Guam, Germany, Guam, and Guantanamo Bay Cuba are also on the list.

The president asked for $3.6 billion in funds, so this would – in theory – cover the total costs. Now I’m not naive enough to think these funds will be put toward the wall, especially with the leftists and the RINOs fighting the president at every turn, but it’s nice to dream.

Shut Up & Take My Money!

The Pentagon is spending an outrageous amount of our money for defense upgrades, but when you see what they’re tinkering with, you may send them even more of your cash.

Recently released documents about the Pentagon’s Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA) show the agency spent millions researching invisibility cloaks, high energy laser weapons, wormholes and more between 2007 and 2012.

Okay, my department would like to dispose of our Glock pistols in favor of DL-44 heavy blasters.

The Federation of American Scientists (FAS) obtained a list of nearly 40 research titles like “Invisibility Cloaking” by Dr. Ulf Leonhardt through a Freedom of Information Act request.

I would also like to request one of these for… um… fine, for checking out showering babes.

“At first glance it looks like a pretty wild list of topics … but if you look at it with a little more context about what DIA’s role is and the nature of intelligence more generally, it’s not quite as wild of a list at first glance,” John Amble of West Point’s Modern War Institute said according to Federal News Network. “One of the requirements of intelligence is to do strategic forecasting. If you start looking at strategic intelligence, you are looking generations into the future in some cases and certainly generations in terms of equipment, weapons and platforms.”

My former neighbor worked for a defense contractor. One night we went out to dinner with another neighbor and spent the entire night discussing the possibility of building a Death Star. The first neighbor – a verifiable genius – said the major problem in its construction would be the propulsion systems. He seemed to believe weapons and armament wouldn’t be all that difficult.

So yeah, Pentagon; get us one of those, too.

Seventeen Years Later

The worst terrorist attack on American soil occurred seventeen years ago today, on Tuesday, September 11, fifteen minutes from now.

The September 11 attacks were a series of four coordinated terrorist attacks by the Islamic terrorist group al-Qaeda against the United States on the morning of Tuesday, September 11, 2001. The attacks killed 2,996 people, injured over 6,000 others, and caused at least $10 billion in infrastructure and property damage. Additional people died of 9/11-related cancer and respiratory diseases in the months and years following the attacks.

Four passenger airliners operated by two major U.S. passenger air carriers all of which departed from airports in the northeastern part of the United States bound for California—were hijacked by 19 al-Qaeda terrorists. Two of the planes, American Airlines Flight 11 and United Airlines Flight 175, were crashed into the North and South towers, respectively, of the World Trade Center complex in Lower Manhattan. A third plane, American Airlines Flight 77, was crashed into the Pentagon in Arlington County, Virginia, which led to a partial collapse of the building’s west side. The fourth plane, United Airlines Flight 93, was initially flown toward Washington, D.C., but crashed into a field in Stonycreek Township near Shanksville, Pennsylvania, after its passengers thwarted the hijackers.

9/11 is the single deadliest incident for firefighters and law enforcement officers in the history of the United States, with 343 and 72 killed, respectively.

Seventeen years later, far too many Americans have become apologists for Islamists, and football players kneel during the national anthem on 9-11. Seventeen years later, police officers like those who rushed into those buildings, lauded at the time, are now vilified as racists. Ironically, the September 11 attacks were a victory for Islam, because the culture has forever changed; and not for the better.

Never Forget, Never Forgive

The most horrific attack in our country’s history occurred sixteen years ago today, when Islamist terrorists flew three airliners into the World Trade Center, and the Pentagon, respectively.

The September 11 attacks (also referred to as 9/11) were a series of four coordinated terrorist attacks by the Islamic terrorist group al-Qaeda on the United States on the morning of Tuesday, September 11, 2001. The attacks killed 2,997 people, injured over 6,000 others, and caused at least $10 billion in infrastructure and property damage.

Four passenger airliners operated by two major U.S. passenger air carriers (United Airlines and American Airlines)—all of which departed from airports in the northeastern United States bound for California—were hijacked by 19 al-Qaeda terrorists. Two of the planes, American Airlines Flight 11 and United Airlines Flight 175, were crashed into the North and South towers, respectively, of the World Trade Center complex in New York City.

Within an hour and 42 minutes, both 110-story towers collapsed, with debris and the resulting fires causing partial or complete collapse of all other buildings in the World Trade Center complex, including the 47-story 7 World Trade Center tower, as well as significant damage to ten other large surrounding structures. A third plane, American Airlines Flight 77, was crashed into the Pentagon in Arlington County, Virginia, leading to a partial collapse of the building’s western side. The fourth plane, United Airlines Flight 93, initially was steered toward Washington, D.C., but crashed into a field in Stonycreek Township near Shanksville, Pennsylvania, after its passengers tried to overcome the hijackers.

9/11 was the single deadliest incident for firefighters and law enforcement officers in the history of the United States, with 343 and 72 killed respectively.

Sixteen years after the slaughters, American leftists are more concerned with alleged Islamophobia and less concerned with the terrorists who still want us all dead.

Never Forget, Never Forgive

september-11th-attacks

Fifteen years ago today, at this very minute, Islamic terrorists flew American Airlines Flight 11 into the North Tower of the World Trade Center. By the end of the day, four airliners were down and 2,977 people were slaughtered.

Fifteen years later, far too many Americans have forgotten. Not the incident, mind you, but the sense of sadness, anger, and helplessness which shrouded the day’s events. Our country is more divided than ever before.

Fifteen years later, the American president cannot bring himself to utter the words “Islamic terrorism.” Fifteen years later, Americans are making excuses for Islamic terrorism; and in many cases, blaming the victims. Muslims are the most protected class in America, especially those with radical views.

Fifteen years later, professional athletes are disrespecting the American flag on 9-11, and 9-11 “truthers” are given a voice, instead of being publicly shunned.

Fifteen years later, the American president has virtually ended the fight against al Qaeda and ISIS, while giving Iran – the world’s largest state sponsor of terrorism – the first installment ($400 million) of a $1.7 billion settlement. The administration is now complicit in the funding of international terror.

What will America look like fifteen years from now?
