But not shocking, given the dementia the left is suffering from.
Roll Call, a DC-based news outlet, published a cartoon on Tuesday comparing Russian election meddling to the September 11, 2001 terror attacks.
The cartoon was published early Tuesday morning by Robert Mason with the tagline “Never Forget.”
The image depicts the Twin Towers in New York City reimagined as ballot boxes. A plane marked “Russia” is shown flying into the ballot boxes, suggesting that Russia took away the voting rights of Americans
This is part of the reason Trump is president. And they still don’t get it.
President Trump attends a memorial service in Shanksville, Pa., to remember those killed when hijacked Flight 93 crashed into an open field on Sept. 11, 2001.
Students need us to contextualize America’s tragedies, not commemorate them.
Without mooring these symbols in the reality of the victims’ lives, the remembering is necessarily incomplete. At worst, for my Midwestern students, the flags stand for nothing more than the amount of death that happened. And though it’s a tragedy that so many people were killed in such a vicious way, lots more people die every day, some from violence, some in accidents, some lacking medical care. The sheer amount of death in the world can be, when thought about too directly, debilitating.
You can probably figure it out if you think about it.
Seventeen years after they helped murder 2,977 innocents in the worst terrorist attack on US soil, five 9/11 suspects — including self-avowed mastermind Khalid Sheikh Mohammed — have not faced trial. Continue reading
It seems like yesterday. We swore we’d never forget. Some of us have not. Others forgot far too soon, if they really cared that much at all. People who were toddlers or not even born yet are approaching voting age. I doubt very much if kids are being told the truth, if anything at all in the indoctrination centers that pass for schools nowadays. The history of how we became the greatest nation that ever existed is being perverted or ignored completely. No faith, no individualism, just the collective mantra that all things flow from government largesse and everything should be gotten easily and without sacrifice. The media disseminates their propaganda and children learn it from the constant exposure. Spreading the truth to an unwilling populace is a daunting task and one which in all likelihood will fail. But we have to continue trying to counter this national hysteria. We owe it to those who no longer have a voice.
Pistol Pete…Sept. 11,2018
Sixteen years ago, just a blink in the millennia of time, but a day that changed many of us forever. We’d never heard of Usama Bin Laden or Al Quaeda. Our intelligence agencies knew who was behind it almost instantaneously, but had done nothing. Imagine if George W. Bush had taken the measures necessary to stop these Muslim scum from boarding a plane. It would have given the media yet another excuse to heap raw sewage on the man they never forgave for foiling their blatant attempt to steal a presidential election. After the slaughter of 3,000 Americans, they pretended to put the country ahead of politics for almost a week before the antagonism began anew.
President Trump issues 9/11 Proclamations
The White House made the announcements Friday in official statements.
“During National Days of Prayer and Remembrance, our Nation recalls the nearly 3,000 innocent people murdered on September 11, 2001. As we reflect on our sorrow and our grief, we come together to pray for those who lost loved ones,” Trump said. “As a Nation, we pray that the love of God and the comfort of knowing that those who perished are forever remembered brings them peace and gives them courage.”
DHS Secretary Duke Signs Jones Act Waiver to Secure Fuel After Major Hurricanes Irma and Harvey
The DHS said the waiver will ensure that over the next week, all options are available to distribute fuel to states and territories impacted by Hurricanes Harvey and Irma, both of which have turned out to be historic storms.
I saw this and couldn’t help but remember the disgraceful way the Muslim prick who defiled our country for eight years behaved in the face of natural disaster. When the BP oil spill happened, he refused to suspend the Wilson Act, which would have allowed ships under foreign flags to enter American waters with the equipment and experience to keep the oil slick from reaching landfall. He steadfastly refused to grant the Gulf governors permission to do ANYTHING for TWO LONG MONTHS until it made landfall and destroyed hundreds of businesses and put thousands out of work. He did this to have an excuse to declare a moratorium on oil exploration in the region.
Deadly ice storms in Kentucky… tornadoes in Oklahoma and Missouri… nothing. Not even a mention. Those states didn’t vote for him, so to hell with them. Superstorm Sandy was nothing for him but an opportunity to be seen with Governor Krispy Kreme, strictly for P.R. After Katrina he concentrated his efforts on defending Ray “School Bus” Nagin for his felony incompetence handling the disaster that befell New Orleans. Thousands fled to Houston, where some are likely still in those FEMA trailers. Such are the results of electing a myth, someone’s fantasy of a man who was the most completely unqualified to do anything in modern history. The tragedy is he’ll never go away and the media whores will never speak what they know is true about him.
Trump Stations 1,000 Marines off Florida Coast for Irma Relief Operations
DEAR NEVER-TRUMPERS AND LIBERAL JERKOFFS: THIS IS WHAT LEADERSHIP LOOKS LIKE.
“We train for this kind of mission. It’s in the DNA of the Marine Expeditionary Unit to rapidly respond to crisis when called upon,” 26th MEU Executive Officer Lt. Colonel Christopher Timothy said in a statement obtained by Breitbart Texas. “Alongside our Navy partners, we stand strong and ready to help those affected by this storm in whatever way we can.”
From the deck of the two warships, Marine pilots are prepared to place five Osprey. six Super Stallions, and three Huey helicopters wherever they are needed to provide assistance and support to local rescue and recovery operations.
Trump Chides FEMA for Denying Disaster Relief to Churches
FEMA’s decision to reject disaster relief funding to three churches in Texas seeking to rebuild their communities in the wake of Hurricane Harvey is causing leaders to shake their heads. All three have filed lawsuits against the agency. President Trump said the churches deserve those funds.
Florida Shopper Gives Last Generator to Stranger Behind Him in Line
THE MEDIA WON’T REPORT ON THINGS LIKE THIS; THEY CAN’T USE IT TO BASH TRUMP.
A Good Samaritan in a Florida store brought one customer to tears Thursday after he gave up the store’s last generator to a stranger behind him in line.
At least 32 looters are arrested across Florida during Irma crime spree
Thieves prompt SWAT standoff after robbing a store for GUNS while others are caught on camera breaking into a sports shop.
Two groups of looters were caught on camera Sunday ransacking two separate sporting goods stores in hurricane-hit South Florida.
At least eight people were filmed by an ABC crew breaking into Simon’s Sportswear in Fort Lauderdale, Florida.
In midtown Miami, a local reporter watched as at least a dozen looters undertook what appeared to be a well-coordinated theft of a sporting goods shop. No one in either group has been identified.
A Broward County sheriff’s deputy shot a teenager and arrested another after they allegedly broke in to a home in the affluent suburb of Weston.
Fort Lauderdale police announced the arrest of two 28-year-old men who are alleged to have broken into six homes late Saturday night.
A utility company near Orlando is reporting that residents are complaining of looters posing as utility workers who rob homeowners at gunpoint.
During interrogations, KSM said that Bush’s aggressive response to the 9/11 attacks was the opposite of what al-Qaeda expected … and that it saved us from a second wave of attacks.
“Today, some on both the left and the right argue that al-Qaeda wanted to draw us into a quagmire in Afghanistan — and now the Islamic State wants to do the same in Iraq and Syria. KSM said this is dead wrong. Far from trying to draw us in, KSM said that al-Qaeda expected the United States to respond to 9/11 as we had the 1983 bombing of the Marine barracks in Beirut — when, KSM told Mitchell, the United States “turned tail and ran.”
He also said he thought we would treat 9/11 as a law enforcement matter, just as we had the bombings of the U.S. embassies in Kenya and Tanzania and the USS Cole in Yemen — arresting some operatives and firing a few missiles into empty tents, but otherwise leaving him free to plan the next attack.
“How was I supposed to know that cowboy George Bush would announce he wanted us ‘dead or alive’ and then invade Afghanistan to hunt us down?”

Remember the easily debunked sniper fire story she told in 2008? She blamed that faux pas on “sleep deprivation.” You can watch it here:
Flashback: Hillary Clinton Under ‘Sniper Fire’ In Bosnia [2:56]
Yesterday, she claimed to have been in NYC on 9/11. Except, she wasn’t. It boggles my mind that this bubble-brained liar thinks she can invent crap like this when her life has been so PUBLIC. She was First Lady during the Bosnia incident and Senator from New York on 9/11. Sheesh.
The following paragraph is from a friendly-to-Clinton article titled “What Trump and Hillary did on 9/11” [September 10, 2016]. The bolding is mine.
Clinton, meanwhile, was down in Washington, at her home on Whitehaven. She had CNN on as she talked on the phone with her legislative director when the first plane hit. Then the second. By the time she got to the Capitol, the Pentagon had been hit by a third plane. Capitol police were evacuating Senate office buildings. She dialed her daughter, who was in New York. She dialed her husband, who was in Australia. She and other senators received a briefing at the Capitol police station early in the evening. And after “a day indelibly etched in my mind,” and as nightfall approached, Clinton joined congressional colleagues on the steps of the Capitol, standing next to some of her fiercest political opponents, singing “God Bless America” with tears in her eyes. 
Added by bluebird of bitterness:
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.
IF YOU THINK THE PRESS WILL GIVE THIS A LOT OF ATTENTION YOU MAY BE DISAPPOINTED
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.
