Fifteen years ago. It could have been yesterday. We all remember the details of our lives that day as events unfolded. The sense of loss left us numb. First responders rushing in to the chaos as others were fleeing. The sight of the plane bursting into flames as it hit the second tower. Innocents leaping to their death rather than be burned alive. It was horror beyond human comprehension. The country came together to support and console each other. Billions were raised for the victims and the families of victims. We were as one.
That lasted about a week. That’s all the longer the left and their media whores could bear not inflicting as much pain as possible on George W. Bush. We’ve all seen the footage of Andrew Card coming into the classroom where he was reading to some children and the look on his face when he got the news. He sat calmly for a few minutes so as not to panic the children. He was roundly criticized for not jumping up and running out screaming. Of course, if he had, he’d have been ripped for not remaining calm.
Taking advantage of this tragedy the NTSB formed a new security measure, the dreaded airport security. Ostensibly to prevent this sort of thing from happening again. The left swiftly moved to unionize them to form a new voting bloc. They were not allowed to model the procedures after the Israelis, who are under constant threat. They profile Muslims and haven’t had a terror attack on a plane yet. Afraid to offend any swarthy Mediterranean types, we allow these perverts to grope young children and old people in wheelchairs. They have never stopped one potential hijacking. Doesn’t matter. They took advantage of a national tragedy to increase their power over our lives.
Can We Remember the Americans Murdered on 9-11 Without Mentioning the Murderers?
At a community college in California last week, a student group was denied permission to hold a 9-11 commemoration because it would make some students “uncomfortable.”
Many of the prominent 9-11 “remembrance” ceremonies announced for the 15th anniversary of the 2001 terrorist attack have something missing. The really uncomfortable thing is that we all know what that missing something is: there will be no naming of Islamic radicalism as the motivation and the instrument of the murder of thousands of innocent people on that beautiful September morning fifteen years ago.
U.S. Students on Track to Learn America Is to Blame for 9/11
As America looks back on the September 11 terrorist attack that changed the nation, the direction of education in the country seems on track to ensure that U.S. students either forget that day entirely or view it as a result of America’s own failure to be open and accepting of other cultures.
Signs of the promotion of a “borderless” country that fosters unfettered multiculturalism could be seen decades ago in progressive school textbooks read daily by American students.
“Culture war” commentator Stanley Kurtz tells Breitbart News that the situation is likely only to grow worse with the left-leaning Advanced Placement (AP) U.S. History and European History frameworks shaping the minds of current-day American students.
The Experience of a Lifetime, a 9/11 Remembrance
As we passed through security to begin our tour, a cell phone rang. One of the members of our tour was being notified that a plane had crashed into the World Trade Center. We proceeded to a small star-like emblem on the floor of the Capitol under the dome. It is recognized as the center point of Washington DC. It was a fateful place to be when you become aware of the most infamous day in American history.
HILLARY DROPS LIKE A ROCK — FAINTS GETTING INTO VAN
Hillary Clinton has ‘medical episode’ at 9/11 ceremony, source says
The Democratic presidential nominee appeared to faint on her way into her van and had to be helped by her security, the source said. She was “clearly having some type of medical episode.”
Clinton’s stumbled off the curb, her “knees buckled” and she lost a shoe as she was helped into a van during her “unexpected early departure,” a witness told Fox News.

Media Puts Debate Moderators On Notice: Protect Hillary
The media has been forced to move beyond standard coverage of Clinton’s boilerplate stump speeches and acknowledge the realities surrounding her. The Foundation, the insane amounts of money, the access sold, the favors traded, the trust betrayed. They do their best to undercut the stories – keeping them short on TV and burying them deep in the paper – but people have heard enough to connect the dots from Clinton’s nearly 40 years in public life and to read between the lines themselves.
It’s what’s kept this race close, and it’s what has the media worried.
MSNBC Interrupts Traditional 9/11 Footage to Cover Clinton’s Fainting
Clinton, who has laughed off questions about her health, reportedly left the Ground Zero event at around 9:30 a.m. and nearly fainted, having to be helped into her van by her security detail. Her campaign’s pool reporters were left in the dark for nearly an hour about her whereabouts, but it finally came out that she had been driven to her daughter Chelsea’s apartment because she felt “overheated.”
Andrea Mitchell added that she had seen nothing to be concerned about regarding Clinton’s health on the campaign trail. The Democrat did, however, make headlines last week when she was so overwhelmed by a coughing fit that she could barely speak during a campaign event.
Holt said she “seemed fine” before her spell, and Mitchell reiterated that Clinton’s health was not a concern.
