Hard To Believe – 9/11 Happened Ten Years Ago Today

What is harder to believe is that Mayor Bloomberg has decided that First Responders would not be invited to the memorial service.

Huh?

If you can explain that to me, I’d appreciate it, because I sure as hell do not understand it. How can he NOT invite the very people who ran into this horrific situation with radios that didn’t work, doing whatever they could to save lives? There is no doubt that without them, more souls would have perished. But Bloomberg says there isn’t enough room for them.

Riiigghhhtttt…

There is no explanation, no rationale, no justification, no excuse good enough to explain how these brave people, firefighters, police officers, are to be left out of the tenth anniversary of this horrific attack on our country when they were the ones there, day in and day out.

This is for them, those courageous men and women who served this nation so well on that day, one seared into the national consciousness, one that changed our lives forever:

For our nation, as we remember this day, truly a day seared into our national consciousness, we must never forget what happened this day in New York City, in a field in Pennsylvania, and at the Pentagon. We can never forget that there are those who wish to do America harm.

For all those who were lost that day, workers at the Towers, in the Pentagon, and passengers on a flight, the first responders who ran into harm’s way when everyone else was trying desperately to run as far away as possible from the danger, we will not forget you. No matter the ridiculous decisions by those in power to leave out these brave souls, we will not forget you. Nor will we forget the pain and suffering of the families and friends who lost loves ones that day.

It is the Tenth Anniversary of 9/11. And we will never forget…

    Dozens of Radical Muslims Burned the American Falg at the American Embassy  in London in Celebration of the 9/11 Attacks…

  • Anonymous

    I did not see this mentioned yet, but this is a very profound and previously untold story surrounding the events of September 11th.

    We all know that to prevent another hijacked jet from crashing into D.C., fighter jets were deployed with orders to shoot down Flight 93.

    What was not known was that it was two jets. One was flown by Lt. Heather Penney who was one of the first generation female combat pilots in the Air National Guard Force.

    The problem they faced was that this all happened unexpectedly and was developing too quickly for them to arm the jets with weapons and ammunition. Yet Lt. Penney was ordered to stop the jet.

    “What she didn’t have as she roared into the crystalline sky was live ammunition. Or missiles. Or anything at all to throw at a hostile aircraft. Except her own plane. So that was the plan.”

    Penney was going into a mission that she knew would require her to end her life by intentionally crashing her jet into the commercial airliner. It was a suicide mission.
     
    http://www.newsday.com/911-anniversary/f-16-pilot-s-mission-take-down-flight-93-1.3160369

    Of course Penney did not have to ram the jet because the passengers on board Flight 93 voted to over-power the hostages which prevented the plan from reaching D.C.

    • AbigailA

      Penney said she wondered briefly if she should try to eject before striking the plane, but just as quickly decided she couldn’t be as accurate and that she only had one chance and she needed to be at the controls and didn’t want to be remembered as having goofed it.

    E-Verify says Obama not eligiblefor employment in the United States 

    The Steady Drip,
    by Staff   
    9/11/2011

    E-Verify is an Internet-based system operated by U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services in partnership with the Social Security Administration. E-Verify provides an automated link to federal databases to help employers determine employment eligibility of new hires and the validity of their Social Security numbers. If you were an employer and entered Barack Hussein Obama’s social security number 042-68-4425 into the data base to verify that he was eligible for employment in the United States you could not legally hire him. Here is what everify would tell you about hiring Mr. Obama:

    Perry proclaims 9/11 asTexas First Responders Day

    Houston Chronicle,
    by Amanda Sakuma  
    9/11/2011

    Gov. Rick Perry proclaimed Sept. 11 as Texas First Responders Day in honor of the emergency response teams that aided search-and-rescue efforts to the 2001 terrorist attacks on the World Trade Center. The proclamation, made on the 10th anniversary of the terrorist attacks, recognized the 73 members of the Texas Task Force 1 who were among the first to respond to the attacks in New York City. “We witnessed heroic rescue efforts on 9/11, and I ask all Texans to pause in a spirit of remembrance for those who gave their lives on that day,” Perry said.

    Quite simply there is no adequate explanation as to why the first responders weren’t invited to the memorial service.

      Thanks, Linda – and I agree completely. No excuses will do, especially when I saw how much room there still was at the event this morning. It defies explanation, doesn’t it?

    • Anonymous

      There is to be a separate ceremony because there were 91,000 first responders and they already have the families of 3,000 victims on site. There was not enough room.
      Now, you can make an argument that they could have put them in a stadium with the ceremony beamed in to them.
      I think they should have done more.

    Obama sending Congress jobs bill on Monday with Rose Garden send off

    WASHINGTON–It’s not on President Obama’s public schedule for Monday
    yet–but according to a White House official, Obama will send Congress
    his jobs bill tomorrow night, with send-off remarks in the Rose Garden.
    Obama will be flanked, the official said, will be flanked in the Rose
    Garden by teachers, firefighters, police officers, small business owners
    and veterans, all people who Obama said would benefit from his package
    of tax breaks and spending to jumpstart the economy. Obama delivered
    the broad outlines of what the White House calls the “American Jobs Act”
    Thursday before a joint session of Congress.

              No, when a Muslim prays, he puts his head on the ground. He does not look up at God. That would be blasphemous, or at best. extremely irreverent. Obama is being his usual arrogant self. Thinks he is good enough to look God in the face when praying. I hope God is taking notes.

          Speaking of jutting chin, the front page of the WSJ today has a huge photo of Jutting Chin Obama side by side with George W. Bush, whose head is bowed.  The contrast couldn’t be starker: Obama looks as if he is praying to H/himself, the god of Arrogance, up there in heaven and Bush looks sad and thoughtful, head bowed in reflection.  Four years ago I never thought that in my wildest dreams I would write a positive word about W, but he looks pretty d—–ed good next to That One.

    Revealed miracles and Divine protection in Manhattan

    MUST READ: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. It was the largest boatlift ever to have happened – greater than the one at Dunkirk during World War II. Yet somehow a story of such large scale became lost in all the rubble. But a new 10-minute documentary called Boatlift by Eddie Rosenstein…..

Among them are orders to “minimize references to al-Qaeda,” on the grounds they have become “increasingly irrelevant” ever since their leader, Osama bin Laden, died from an acute case of Navy SEAL. “I call upon all Americans to join in service and honor the lives we lost, the heroes who responded in our hour of need…..”

              “Krugman is a weak-kneed coward.”

              That is the hasbara now, but time will come that he’ll be recognized as another Jane Hamsher, the first one to stick their neck out.

              Whether that distinction is worth the personal danger to his life, is a matter of individual perspective.

              “One thing you left out. He banned all comments to his editorial. So much for free speech.”

              He “banned” nothing.  He disabled comments to that particular article, and saved his own ass with the Times, because the inevitable onslaught, threats, hatred, etc. would be the property of the Times staff, not him.

              “And let’s see how much longer he gets paid by event he NY Times for that.”

              For doing his job?  For pointing out the obvious?

              No, they will not fire him, because a) there is no one comparable to replace him, and b) to fire him would be to fit into the narrative folks like myself would immediately paint the NYT with, as opposed to a newspaper that acknowledges, validates and promotes a modern, progressive agenda, along with others.

    Perhaps the powers that be were afraid that first responders might stage a protest at the ceremony, demanding an honest investigation of 9/11, etc.  Otherwise, their exclusion doesn’t make sense.  Bloomberg et al  must have concocted an excuse of some kind.

    This is a sad day when they are separating out those who lost and those who helped and also lost in the process.
    Personally I am trying to keep myself together today. Just too much media today for me to handle.
    Though no one I knew personally died that day…
    I do Feel that a part of my/our country died that day..
    My/Our home was invaded and a piece of my/our inner security was destroyed on that day.
    The America that we were prior to that fateful day is no longer there.
    I do however wish that more Americans would remember how they felt that day and would get back together as we were for the days and few weeks that followed.
    God Bless all those we loss that day.
    God Bless all that helped out that day.
    God Bless all our Service People who have and do protect our great nation.
    Again Thank You RRRA — Good to see your Posts.

    I’m running in safe mode (anyone here know how to get to backup and restore in safe mode?), so I can’t link the piece from Breitbart’s site.  It’s worth a read:  “A (Former) Lefty Remembers 9/11: The World Was Not Quite With Us” — Joel Pollak

    “I was only slowly realizing that many of my friends on the left were more interested in the false psychological gratification of contrived rebellion against authority, and less interested in actually improving the lives of the downtrodden whom they said they cared about.”

    This is why I disagree when I read any defense of the current Democrat party.  The left and their entire ideology needs to be eradicated.  Now.

            You really should be more careful with your malicious accusations.  If I could identify you (and it wouldn’t be that difficult given your trail on the internet) I could persue a legal resolution to your ignorant personal attacks.

            • Scottymac54

              Uh, I’m not the one who advocated, on two separate occasions, the “eradication” of a sizable number of the American populace, a political purge.

              Do you EVER think about what you write, and how some lunatic could act on it?

              Is that the underlying purpose, or are you just being melodramatic?

    The contrast between the former Presidents and the current one was brought into sharp focus for me with two pictures I saw yesterday. One was the two former Presidents, Bush and Clinton, weeping at the memorial in PA. The other was Obama and his wife strolling hand in hand, smiling, through headstones at Arlington Cemetery. That said it all for me.

          There is a look about any American, especially adult American.
          Obama just does not get it. 
          All one has to do is flip through the telcasts to see how so many were doing their best to hold it together.
          Even now one can see how many newcasters, politicians and etc are having troubles with keeping it together long enough to give even the shortest of speech…

          Obama’s reaction to me says he does not have the inner American in him.  So why the H3LL is he our president.

    Cairo Mob Attacked CNN: ‘They Were Animals’

    CNN journalists described the Friday mob that attacked them during the riot at the Israeli embassy as “animals.” One other journalist was called a spy and almost was raped.

    The worldwide news site reported a scene that brought back ugly memories of the gang rape of CBS reporter Lara Logan earlier this year during the Arab spring uprising against the Mubarak regime.

    CNN reported that one person in the mob on Friday called Dina Amer, a woman member of another American crew, “a spy.” A  CNN
    producer who is an Egyptian approached to rescue the woman from the
    rioters, but “the mob overwhelmed the pair,” the network reported.

    “I was thinking, how powerless I was because there was no police to
    save us,” said the producer, Mohammed Fadel Fahmy. “I was worried that
    they were going to rape her.”

    Someone shouted to Fahmy that there was a nearby car, and he brought
    the “spy” into the vehicle, which belonged to a television crew.

    “When Margaret Warner, a correspondent with the PBS program ‘Newshour’ managed to get the vehicle moving away from the crowd, men threw stones at the departing vehicle,” the journalist said.

    “They were animals,” said Amer.

      I think code pink should have there to rescue them.  After all there’s not a problem with the Muslim Brotherhood.   Now someone else knows what it’s like to a woman in a Muslim country.  To know fear just because you are a woman. When will the western world open their eyes.  For the White House to put on a memo play down the Muslim connection to 9-11 in your speeches today is unforgivable.

      And more of Obama’s handiwork. Here are the so-called members of the “religion of peace” in the U.K  .  .  .  .  .  .
       
      “Protesters set fire to the U.S. flag outside the American embassy in London today during a minute’s silence to mark the moment the first hijacked airliner hit the World Trade Centre.
      A group of 100 Muslim radicals, including members of Muslims Against Crusades, shouted ‘USA  terrorists’ and brandished anti-American placards.
      One protester in Grosvenor Square said: ‘You will always face suffering, you will always face humiliation, unless you withdraw your troops from Muslim lands.’”

        Holy crap, Hokma. That is just shocking.

        Yea talk about going full circle. The Brits won’t need tree trucks hovering out over the English channel to ward off the enemy as in WWII….The enemy lives right in their neighborhoods. One wonders, if America will be able to suitably come to their aid next time peace erupts! I’m sure we will simply be too broke financially to offer aid to our allies!

        I say let’s withdraw..completely. Do no business with any Muslim country and give them no aid. It would save us billions upon billions of dollars. Lord knows, we can use the money!

      That is just horrible. So very disturbing to hear abt this.

      I cannot help but think of the people on Facebook who gave me a hard time abt not being thrilled at what was happening in Egypt at the time, with the Muslim Brotherhood, etc. They ignored what happened to Logan. I wonder if they will ignore this CNN report as well…

      • Anonymous

        Those who refuse to see the truth, or even attempt to find out what is truth if it interferes with their ideological bent will ignore the facts that don’t support what they want to believe.

        Funny how so many of those “smart” people on the left, those that like to make fun of us illiterate hillbillies are so woefully and willfully ignorant. As is said, “none so blind as those that will not see.

        (And just FYI, here in Wisconsin those of us who are not liberals are not called “hillbillies”, we are called “stumpjumpers”. I first encountered this when my uncle moved down here to Kenosha, this bastion of liberal/union folks, from further north in the state. The slick, “cool” folks down here were all that fond of the simpler, more conservative people from small rural communities upstate. Bigotry perhaps?)

    I will say this one more time. We have gone overboard. This is a day for
    the families. While brave first responders lost their lives and those
    families of the deceased first responders are invited. This is not a day
    for “all first responder departments” who responded from across the
    country to come to NYC. Who do you insult and not invite?

    Yes, Amy there is not enough room. Lets all keep this day in perspective…

    • Anonymous

      All the first responders were asking for were for a select group of representatives. The health problems they have gone through have ranged from serious to lethal. They deserved it more than any politician who was not in office on 9/11 and had a place to speak.

        As I said earlier Obama does not have that inner Americism within him.
        Obama does not feel that inner American pain and void that today represents for the vast majority of our country.

  • Docelder

    Maybe the theme of the day isn’t American heroism… resilience or courage… I suspect the theme will be tolerance and how we are now BFF with Muslims ever since their fringe elements launched the cowardly attack on that day. I am looking forward to a kabuki day for POTUS as he is desperate.

      If you noticed, the Bushes were very dignified and very emotional. Laura Bush was shedding tears while the Big M was probably watching the time.

      Also notice that there was no reception for Obama while there was spontaneous cheering and applause for Bush.

      Barak Obama will never be able to be on the same “stage” as people like George Bush (either one) and Bill Clinton.
