The Morning Report - 9/11/19

911fromspace.jpg

Good morning kids. Midweek, and that horrible morning, one that I consider the worst day and days of my life, is now 18 years behind us. Looking back on everything we've seen and experienced since makes you shake your head, and your fists. The optimism of the Reagan years and the dismantling of the Soviet Union did not beget a period of national renewal and a blossoming of Americanism and American ideals, but instead gave us a decade of cultural, moral and political depravity. While we were passed out cold in a drunken stupor, drooling and soiling the carpet, a Dark Age cancer that had run wild for close to a thousand years but had been in remission since 1683, and not coincidentally September 12th of that year to be precise, came back with a vengeance. It shoved the puerile notion of "the end of history" into a figurative and literal mass grave.

Then, as we attempted to pick ourselves up and recover, the other nasty consumption which has racked up a body count far exceeding its evil twin and in only a little over a century, erupted from within to try and finish us off for good. And as we can see just by looking at the links in almost any category, the election of Donald Trump and all that he has done and tried to do notwithstanding, the situation is still very much in doubt.

What we can do, and what we must do as we do whenever we commemorate the battles and wars we have fought to preserve and protect what we cherish, is pray for the memory of the fallen, not lose faith when even everything seems hopeless and never surrender the essence of who and what you are. May G-d bless America and consign Islamism and Leftism to the Infernal Reaches. On a personal note, I remember classmate Kathleen M. Moran. RIP.

Anyway, links from around the world, across the nation and up your street. Have a better one and remain blessed.

NOTE: The opinions expressed in some links may or may not reflect my own. I include them because of their relevance to the discussion of a particular issue.

19 To the border we go where the Montgomery County Illegal Alien Rape-Rape
Derby has racked up number 8. Remember that it's a sanctuary county and
despite knowing he had a criminal history and that he could easily and
swiftly (-ish) have been deported, they let him loose anyway. Can we
hang large letter "Rs" on the Mo-Co county court house like they used to
do for Dwight Gooden at Shea Stadium?


What needs to happen is someone to sue the living hell out of the country officials for violating the laws and allowing thse rapes to occur.

At least the 9th circus is being cleaned up.


The 9th Circuit Court of Appeals, long a liberal bastion that has been aggressively reshaped into

25 In memory of my friend Dan McNeal, killed in the WTC that day.

He was fond of saying "People are basically good and probably smart." It informed his life and he treated everyone with respect and dignity.

Posted by: WitchDoktor, as if you give a damn at September 11, 2019 07:24 AM (Rk2Ph)

26 While all of us focus on the attack which took place 18 years ago...there is still work to be done to defeat the current Leftist movement today.

So, with no intent to downplay or denigrate the horrific actions of that day, I want to switch to a different topic for a moment.

From personal interaction with folk here in the liberal land of B'More, not many folk watched the multi-hour CNN Skank-a-thon the other weekend.
But, many of them are aware of snippets of what each one of the idiots candidates said.

And when one takes the time to explain that when Comrade Sanders speaks of making abortion available for women in pro countries, in order to control the population of the world, he is in actuality speaking of killing unborn black babies so that wealthy whites can continue to live in comfort.....it hits a nerve.

And when you lay out the demographics of the majority of poor countries, it's pretty clear who his target victims are.

Just a suggestion for your future interactions with folk in the real world.

32 I don't think I can read your link re: nurse who witnessed what Northam referred to - letting an aborted, live baby a die post-abortion.

It should be paired with your link last week, the activist nurse lecturing that nurses don't deserve a religious exemption from participating in abortions.

Yes, they need everyone in the room OK with KILLING just in case the late-term abortion results in a live birth.

43 I won't be lowering my flag today. I'm sick of seeing how a date for righteous anger has been turned into weepy sentimentality.

The truth is that 9/11 was one of the most lopsided victories in military history. For the cost of less than two dozen terrorists, they made the Great Satan knuckle under.

Two years, five years, ten years... Eighteen years? Enough. I'm tired of it. Would we still be defiantly proclaiming "Remember Pearl Harbor" if we had lost WWII? Or would we be trying to forget?

48 I don't know what to think about 9/11 anymore.

Largely we have won the war on terror, and largely the radical Islamofascist movement has stalled.

And yet, I feel like in a lot of ways we have lost our country.

Yes, Trump won, but so did AOC. A raft of Democrats are running for President, and they each promise to take our guns, promote abortion up to the day of birth, force men into your daughter's bathroom at school, and make us vegetarians.

And according to the polls - all of them including Amy Klobuchar could beat Trump in Texas. I mean, that's ludicrous, but there it is.

60 The thing most shocking about that infanticide witnessing nurse...imo, that would be the "comfort room" at Christ Hospital. It comes equipped with paper and ink pads so you can take prints of your murdered infant's feet as a souvenir, and other such macabre and sick stuff: (Fair warning: this will make your soul feel even sicker at what modern society has become.)

"This was a small, nicely decorated room complete with a First Foto machine in case parents wanted pictures of their aborted babies, baptismal supplies if parents wanted their aborted babies baptized, and a foot printer and baby bracelets if parents wanted keepsakes of their aborted babies. There was also a wooden rocker to rock these babies to death," Stanek testified. She submitted photos of the comfort room with her testimony.

90 Finished watching the 6 part documentary about the Spanish Civil War last night on You Tube mentioned here a few times. Definitely worth watching if you have the time. Overall very well presented without too much leftist bias, to the point I'm surprised it hasn't been taking down. Plus the commies lose hugely and get what they had planned for the rest of the country.



Sadly, this seems to be where this country is heading if the Dems don't stop their insanity.

91 On 9/11, I dropped Little Winger off at school, then went home and turned on Fox and Friends. I believe E.D. Hill was still on at that time. They were talking about a plane that had crashed into one of the towers in NYC. I couldn't figure out how a plane could do that - it was a clear sunny day.


Then from the side, I saw the 2nd plane come in. I knew then what is was. That was the day my son decided to join the Army. He had to wait till he was 17, and then I signed for him and he went.

I expected her to be old lady shook up, but she started speaking very slow, so her English was near perfect. "We must go wherever they are and just kill them all". No emotion, just cold hard fact. She and her family were guests of the Third Reich, 1939 to 1945.

101 On the morning of 9/11, I was on the Southeast Expressway in Boston heading to Logan Airport. I was heading to NYC on the shuttle and while I was driving I was speaking to my regional manager who was based in NJ. He was heading to the PATH train to the city to meet me. The station he was headed to was below the WTC.

He told me that a he just heard on the radio that a plane hit the WTC. We both immediately thought it was a small traffic plane but I told him that I would call him from the airport and let him know if my plane was delayed.

By the time I got to the airport all hell was breaking loose. It was still early and none of the restaurants were open but one was getting ready to open and they had all the tvs behind the bar area turned to the news. A bunch of use were pressed up against the metal screen watching and finally the manager came over, let us in and gave us all coffee as we watched.

A few minutes later multiple branches of law enforcement and the National Guard came over and told us we had 5 minutes to leave the airport or we were staying with them.

One of the most surreal days of my life.

123 Weasel Zippers had a headline that CAIR is demanding Lindsey Graham appologize for being photographed next to Gert Wilders. It suddenly struck me that, given muslim world views, the "cancel culture" is even more dangerous than generally realized. Muslims would be only to happy to build on the existing push and go all the way to physically eliminating their ideological opponents. With the attitude developing, the response is likely to be "Sure, murderer went too far, but what did you expect him to do given the provocation?" and a shrug.

124 I'm a little bit over 9/11 commemorations. We got attacked, so we have a solemn day of victimhood every year.

We barely notice Pearl Harbor Day because we turned around and did enough damage that we haven't needed to be afraid of Japan for 75 years.

9/11 led us into at least two vague inconsequential wars we're still fighting without any clear goals.

How have we changed as a society? We have less privacy, less freedom of movement. We get treated as suspects if we want to fly to visit Aunt Doris, we accept indignities and personal intrusions in the name of homeland security.

The reason I don't believe that is that I've been around incompetence, and official incompetence, and I've seen (on a smaller scale of course) incredible, outrageous things happen solely because the people in charge were so stupid and lazy that they couldn't be bothered to avoid a disaster happening right in front of their nose.

If any government employee were told that there was an atomic bomb being smuggled into the country tomorrow and only they could stop it, BUT also HR called and told them they had built up 5 vacation days and they had to take them right away or lose them, they would take the 5 vacation days immediately, without a doubt.

163 I was there. I lived, and many didn't. I watched amazing feats of self sacrifice and amazing acts of self preservation and cowardice.

What I remember most are those who answered the call and still do. Those who "get it" and those who either don't or consciously support the attacks. Yep, I said it. Don't think they exist? Survey the current landscape.

What I also prominently remember is a time when we pulled together as countrymen. When we focused on our soul and collective ethos as a nation. When we pulled together for our common interests, not subverted, undermined and destroyed each other for the purpose of dividing our citizens and nefarious political ends.

As for those who pursue the latter part of that, who seek to destroy and rot us from within- fuck you. You've forgotten what we're capable of when roused in anger. September 11th, should remind those with disingenuous, evil purposes that we will never quit or surrender.

Finally, to my countrymen who have given all since, and their families. RIP and walk in God's divine grace. I'll see you one day on the other side.

If I were asked on a poll (not that I would answer a poll, but hypothetically) "are you worried a recession might happen?" I could easily say "sure I worry about it from time to time." But if I were asked "are you so worried about a recession that you are going to change your spending and investment plans?" I would say oh hell no, you wait until you see signs and change then, if necessary.

And that's how polls are designed so that the pollster gets the answer he wants. Will a recession happen at some point? Well of course it will, my best guess ATM is either Q1 or Q2 of 2021. But Trump will still be the best man to handle it.

229 I worked second shift at the time and was just waking up moments after the second plane hit. That was actually early for me to get up at that time, and half-awake I turned on the TV to watch the news, then groggily stumbled my way into the kitchen to get the coffee going.

I was vaguely aware from the sounds coming from the TV in the other room that there had been some sort of plane accident. Two? And the World Trade Center had been hit?

Just as I was trying to process all this, the phone rang and I heard my mom's stricken voice say, "Are you watching the news?"

Best scenario I can think of is that they aborted because of significant medical issues (i.e. the kid would not survive), so they're aborting to skip the delivery + NICU part. Or, this room is there for late-term babies who are lost due to miscarriage. I've known people who name the child, have funerals for them in the latter scenario.

252 All those reasons to not remember 9-11 are exactly the reasons I raised our flag to half mast on the porch this morning.

On the morning of 9-11, it was the most clear, perfect September day in NJ. Once the planes hit and the calls started flying ( siblings and relatives working in NYC checking up on each other ) I ran out to the street - the beautiful tree-lined suburban street where everyone was happily working their asses off to live the American Dream, I made a promise ( I knew these plane crashes were acts of war) : "Let them come and I will fight them bastards with every effing thing I have. I won't let them near my child; I won't let them near my home; I won't let them on my street! I will not let them destroy what so many died to give me."
And then the most bizarre things happened: we were barraged by emails pleading to " not respond to the attacks with more war. Return love ...not bombs" People who had long since abandoned any semblance of Christianity were now pretending that the response to an act of war is to just sit there and take it. There were neighborhood 'prayer meetings' so the US would not send bombs to any enemies. I felt like I was drowning in insanity; people lost their ability to defend and protect - Little did I know that our government and about half the electorate went beyond full surrender to full -on self loathing. - A few nights after 911, after days of beautiful weather, it started to rain in NYC and it was just about the time the rescuers declared that by now they'd find no more survivors. Thinking about those poor people being rained on instead of having a decent burial made me lose all composure. I made another promise: " They will not be forgotten."

The left is succeeding at erasing history, just look at how they have whitewashed the violent and deranged history of islam and the Middle East and turned it around to blame the US. As long as they push destroy the USA, as long as they twist our history and try to have us forget and move on, I'll be the damn sand in their shorts and bother them until they remember, too.

I was driving equipment from one facility to another when I heard the first reports on the truck radio. I then started to head back to the office, but heard the second plane had hit. When I heard the Pentagon had been hit I started praying like there was no tomorrow because I knew my daughter was there. I dropped everything and went home to be with Mrs H. Phone comms were essentially unusable and for hours we didn't know if she was ok. Then we got a call from son in Florida saying she had called him (some long distance calls were getting through) and he called us to let us know she was safe. We were not able to get a direct phone call from her until late afternoon.

Side Note: turns out my daughter had walked through the impact corridor not ten minutes before the plane hit the Pentagon. I cannot imagine my life without her!

301 before we pass on the elections yesterday completely, a thought about early voting: I do not think it means what it used to mean, and I do not think early voting totals tell us much of anything significant about the overall race. (other than organizational ability, which may be a sign of a strong campaign structure)

In past elections, early voting in many areas was a novelty, and a surge in early voting could be taken as a surge in enthusiasm, and thus a harbinger of a winning campaign. BUT today, both parties (but especially Dems) have seized on this and made it a focus of the campaign efforts, the push to maximize early voting.

But when you start pushing this hard for early voting JUST to have high early vote totals, all you've done is to borrow some of the regular election day votes that you would have had anyways, and put them on the books a couple days in advance. (kinda like pre-booking sales, if you were a retailer) And when you do that, you don't change any overall vote totals at all; in fact your high early vote totals that you arranged will guarantee that you have lower than expected election day totals, since you just borrowed from one column and moved it to another.

Overall, I think early voting is neutral, does not affect election outcomes, and predicting anything based on early vote totals (except in isolated cases) is useless.

I agree with this comment. It's very apt to describe him as "modestly dumb", but I think he is corrupt as all hell too. He doesn't think it out of line that a man has become a millionaire in politics, a man whose family paid him to leave Brooklyn, who has never held a job and whose only entrepreneurial effort was making middle school film strips, back when film strips had a role in fifth grade education. Bernie is so lazy he was ejected from his commune and so strange that he has a collected oeuvre of rape fantasies to explain.

316 The NC HoR races remind me of this: in 1970, 2 years after winning the Presidency, we lost in the House, but picked up in the Senate. (Technically only one in the Senate, but Buckley was a better Republican than RINO Goodell, really, and was semi-endorsed by Nixon).

One thing I think from what I've seen so far is that the amateur narcissist Trump seems to have a better grasp of working for the party than did the consummate pro Nixon, who concentrated too much on his own winning, and not enough on the legislature. I still think that a different strategy might have given us the Senate in 1972.

367 Interesting Delingpole link from JJ up top, "Climate Hysteria Killing German Auto Industry" (Red/Greens Section). The article really makes a compelling case the German economy is dying solely because of green hysteria, and so is the German electrical grid.


Let's see how the American left likes a Germany whose economy was killed and whose population can't stay warm in winter. I believe the world has seen that movie before, but the idiot left never remembers.

"
Imagine being told in 2001 that Ilhan Omar would be a thing, the Sadiq Khan would be mayor of London, that our next president would have the middle name "Hussein," that he would give billions to Iran and invite a bomb hoaxer to the White House, that Islamic immigration would exponentially increase, etc.

If you look at the population, status and influence of Islamists in the West from 2001 compared to now, it's really hard to argue that bin Laden didn't win."

^This. Add to it that the people primarily inconvenienced by post-9/11 "responses" such as TSA and elements of the Orwellian-named "Patriot Act" have been American citizens with no use for Islam.


While it is important to honor the dead on the anniversaries, it would have been more significant to honor them by at a minimum not allowing the enemy, Islam, to gain a greater foothold in North America. Our degraded leadership did the opposite. If there could be laughter from Hell, we would hear it.

Way back when, not long after 9/11, the Democrats went into the mode of asking the question, "what did we do to deserve it?"

Ironically, it was much of the damage done by the Clinton White House, that led to our vulnerability... and led terrorist orgs to conclude that we were weak.

So yeah, in that sense, the question was valid... we DID do much to bring on the attack ourselves. Unfortunately, what many Americans have "learned" is that we just need more damned Democrats in power, to something something something, and make the world a better place. For some people.

433 @393:

That line has been toed several times in Calizuela. In the immediate aftermath of 9/11, people in the Bay area cautioned during several large demonstrations that the United States should accept its victimhood and not respond because America Evil. To be fair, if the attack had happened in LA there could have been a mirror image of sorts in wide swaths of Manhattan.

When all was said and done, we got the Forever War rather than robust, non-stop bombing of Afghanistan because there were too many like-minded people even then on these shores and in the halls of power. The weekly casualties are at best irrelevant at them and at worst penance for our evil.

434 > "Why does every experiment in socialist end in what you call a right wing fascist dictatorship?"

See also: "Not REAL communism".

Advocates of other systems of government (let's say, for example, monarchy) won't look at, say, John Lackland of England and say "But he wasn't a REAL monarch". Instead they will say something like "Yeah, John was shit, but on the other hand, look at Victoria."

That is possible because there have, in fact, been both good and bad monarchs, and monarchies have, in fact, sometimes produced prosperity and general happiness among their subjects.

There has never been a good communist government. Not once, out of dozens of attempts. It has produced slavery, starvation, and mass murder every single time.

I'm Julie Andrews spinning in the Alps regarding how many Fs I give here, but the article I saw yesterday said the alleged victim... I think it said she traveled across country to visit him something like two weeks after the alleged incident. Which his attorney is calling "consensual."

You finally have a president who understands that I'm not supposed to be president of the world; I'm supposed to be president of the United States of America.

439 IF PDT had done nothing but reshape the Courts, THAT would have been enough. Of course he has done a lot more. 4 more years and the Courts might be ours.

444 I give you Ilhan Omar and Rashida Talib. In Congress. Destroying America from within.

U.S. congressional representative Rancida Taliban was calling the other day for some 9/11 memorial to be cancelled, on the grounds that it might hurt muslims' feelings.
