On The Eve Of The 14th Anniversary Of 9/11 *Open Thread*


Here we are again, steeling ourselves to remember (as if we could forget) what happened in this country on September 11, 2001 by radical Islamist extremists. The carnage they wreaked has had far-reaching consequences, not the least of which is a knee-jerk reaction to appease Islamists lest we hurt their feelings. It is a mindset I simply cannot wrap my brain around, and for that, I am thankful.

Unfortunately, the appeasement response has not done anything whatsoever to make us safer, to lessen the desire to attack the United States (or Israel, for that matter). Rather, it seems to have emboldened radical Islamists even more as we have seen with ISIS; with Iran chanting, “Death to America!,” and that by their Ayatollah; as well as more home-grown radical Islamists attempting, too often succeeding, in waging attacks here at home.

To those points, Chairman of the House Homeland Security Commission, Rep. Michael McCaul, raises the alarm about the dangers we face now. From United With Israel:

[…] According to McCaul, the key takeaways from this month’s Terror Threat Snapshot include the fact that “there have been more US-based jihadist terror cases in 2015 than in any full year since 9/11. The number of US terrorist cases involving homegrown violent jihadists has gone from 38 in July 2010 to 124 today – more than a three-fold increase in just five years.”

Furthermore, “ISIS is fueling the Islamist terror wildfire across the globe at unprecedented speed. As of the end of August, the group has inspired or directed 57 terror attack plots against Western targets, including 15 in the United States. A recent train attack in France would have been a mass-casualty attack had it not been for an alert group of Americans. There have now been nearly twice as many ISIS-linked attack plots against the West this year (37) as there were in all of 2014 (20).”

The targets are diverse, he explained. “Islamist terrorists are intent on killing American law enforcement and military personnel, in addition to innocent civilians. Radicals are increasingly targeting men and women in uniform here in the United States. In August, ISIS supporters released another ‘hit list’ of American government personnel, including service members. Since early 2014, the majority of Islamist terror plots on US soil have featured plans to kill police or US service members.”

ISIS’ threat in the Middle East, and specifically to Israel, is also increasing. “ISIS has largely maintained its terror safe havens in Syria and Iraq while expanding globally more than a year after the US and its allies launched operations against it. Al-Qaeda affiliates from Syria to Yemen have also carved out sanctuary and seized additional terrain. ISIS retained control over its major strongholds in Syria and Iraq while undertaking disruption attacks and offensives in key territory; ISIS-affiliated militants have simultaneously consolidated control in Libya. Foreign fighters continue to swell the ranks of Islamist extremist groups looking to recruit foot soldiers and activate followers to launch attacks in their home countries.” […] (Click here to read the rest.)

That is what a Policy Of Appeasement To Those Who Hate Us And Want To Obliterate Us Off The Face Of The Planet has accomplished. That would be, the exact opposite of what they (presumably) wanted to accomplish. And they have put us all at greater risk as a result. Thanks a bunch there, Political Correctness Purveyors!

I sure hope that this Anniversary does not bring with it the kind of attack we saw in Benghazi three years ago. But about that: seems ol’ Hillary may be in even more hot water on this since a MEMO has surfaced about Benghazi. Truth will out, my friends, and it seems to be doing so with this critical issue. From Western Journalism:

[…] A memo surfaced that indicates that Clinton, then Secretary of State, knew terrorists carried out the attack and also knew the plan was to use protests regarding a controversial You Tube video as a “cover” for the attack. Clinton received the email on Sept. 12, 2012, the day after the attack, from Tyler Drumheller. Drumheller, now deceased, was then a former CIA spy who had challenged information regarding weapons of mass destruction in Iraq. That false information was used to invade Iraq.

The memo to Clinton identified the terrorist group Ansar Al Sharia as the one carrying out the attack. The group consists of former members of the Libyan Islamic Fighting Group, the memo said. The memo said the attack was a threat to the newly elected General National Congress (GNC) Government.

”According to a sensitive source, el Magariaf believes that the primary goal of this and other attacks on Western facilities is to demonstrate that the GNC cannot protect its non-Islamic friends,” the memo said.

The second part of the memo states terrorists were using the protests against the YouTube video Innocence of Muslims as a justification for the attack. […] (Click here to read the rest.)

Gee – I wonder why people think she is a liar? Oh wait – because she IS.

But to lie to the FACES of the families who lost loved ones the day they returned in flag-draped coffins is beyond lying. It is reprehensible. Apologies are insufficient for Clinton, Obama, and all the Democrats who continue to claim this is a “witchhunt” of Clinton for the lives lost that fateful 9/11 in 2012. Absolutely reprehensible.

Finally, there is a group who intends to wage attacks of their own on 9/11 events this year. Nope, not radical Islamists. I am referring to the Black Lives Matter “movement” (read: thugs using this as an excuse to use violence). It is shocking to me that this is where this movement has gone, but considering who has been supporting them (Soros), I shouldn’t be too surprised. The Daily Caller has the story, and here is just a bit of it:

[…] According to several Be On Look Out (BOLO) alerts sent from several law enforcement agencies and exclusively obtained by The Daily Caller, some members of the “#blacklivesmatter and #fyf911 are calling for the murder of more police officers on a site called blog radio.”


One BOLO says, “The narrator known as ‘King Noble’ on Facebook states: ‘It’s open season on killing whites and police officers and probably killing cops period. It’s open season. Picking them off. Today we live in a time when the white man will be picked off,” he goes on to claim “the predators are now the prey.’”

The BOLOs states further that the “#fyf911 (Fuk Yo Flag)” website calls for burning the American flag on 9/11 and “and physically breaking free of the imperialist, colonialist, and racist empires.” […] (Click here to read the rest.)

And that is where we are on the even of the 14th anniversary of 9/11. Thank you, Democrats and Lefties, for the violence you have encouraged and allowed to take hold.

It is heartbreaking to see where we are just a relatively short time after this horrific attack on our shores. Just heartbreaking.

This is an Open Thread…

    trumpy stamping his feet again

    • kenoshamarge Says:

      For an “outsider” Trump sure acts like a politician – everything is always someone else’s fault and his remarks were poorly edited. Hogwash!

      And what’s the love fest with Trump and CNN? Are they fine with him attempting to choreograph their debate too? Anything for ratings it seems. Although Trump cause reverse ratings with me. Once he’s on – I hit mute or leave. Still have to see his ugly mug, ugh!, but unless I stop watching television completely I can’t escape that.

      Good thing I got two new Brad Taylor books, I’m doing a lot more reading these days.

      • Rabble Rouser Reverend Amy Says:

        Is he not the biggest whiner in the world? And a LIAR, to boot. He claims Fiorina attacked him, or pick any of the other candidates, when they are simply responding to an attack by HIM.

        And he did not deny that he said what he said abt Fiorina. He tried to frame it as being abt her “persona.” What a crock. He is a sexist pig, and shows Kelly to be so right over and over and over again.

        This whole CNN thing is RIDICULOUS. If they capitulate to his demands, they might as well not host it at all. The bias will be abundantly clear.

        I still cannot get over that his followers support him even when he is putting forth LEFTY policy ideas.

    why do the words ” you will have to pass it to read it keep going through my mind?

    • kenoshamarge Says:

      I swear if I hear one more of these buffoons say the word “historic” I will barf all over my keyboard.

      • kenoshamarge Says:

        Oh and someone should alert the former speaker and now minority leader of the House that Neville Chamberlin perfected the art of capitulation a generation ago so there’s nothing “historic” about the Dems deal.

        • Rabble Rouser Reverend Amy Says:

          Helen, that is spot on considering no one knows for sure yet what is in the side deals.

          I still cannot believe Democrats have thrown away allegiance to our national security. This is so not my parents’ party, nor the one to which I belonged for so long…

    I cannot believe people are so thrilled with this man. Where the hell does he come off making such a statement abt the HIGHLY lauded doctor who wont he Medal of Freedom for his work? Did DONALD win it? No. Shut the hell up already: http://dailycaller.com/2015/09/10/trump-ben-carson-was-an-ok-doctor-video/

    • kenoshamarge Says:

      A man who I usually respect and agree with over at NQ is a Trump supporter. He said today that when Trump makes outlandish remarks like he made about Fiorina he cringes. But he disagreed with me that this pattern shows that Trump doesn’t respect women. My response: “If he does respect women his mouth doesn’t know it.”

      I am appalled at people who are usually smart and knowledgeable who support this buffoon.

      Another Trump supporter, one not so smart or knowledgeable disagreed with me that Trump and Obama are alike. According to her Obama lives in a bubble and Trump lives in the “real” world. Does anyone think a billionaire lives in the “real” world? But like the Obama true believers they will find an excuse for whatever he does or says. I think that political cults are the saddest of all.

      I can “like” a candidate and “support” a candidate but I’m damned if I’ll ever fall in love with a politician. And that includes the so-called “outsiders”. If you’re running for the highest office in the country and asking people to vote for you – you’re a politician. Anyone that thinks otherwise is just fooling themselves IMO.

      Oops, there I go again. Shame on me.

      • helenk3 Says:

        right now the donald is a useful tool. he is making pols talk about issues they would like to ignore.
        he keeps saying he “cherishes” women, have you ever heard him say he “Respects” women? I have not.
        he is a bloviating blowhard with a thin skin but he has his uses. how many republicans are getting their ideas heard on the issues? I am not sure just who is helping but it is not the republicans

        • kenoshamarge Says:

          I don’t find him useful at all. He is all about him and thus far better, and more credible candidates cannot get their message out. He’s a distraction and entertainment.

      • Rabble Rouser Reverend Amy Says:

        I was just saying something along those lines to Suzy earlier, how people for whom I had previously had respect are just blowing my mind with their support for Donald. Would they support Elizabeth Warren’s economic plan? If they support DONALD, they do since she thinks it is peachy keen-o, too.

        And you can get up on your soapbox ANY time, Marge!

        Helen, I think you are right that Donald is a tool (teehee) to push the other candidates. In that way he does have his uses. But your distinction abt women is an important one. He hasn’t shown a lot of respect for women, or anyone who disagrees with him, or is competing against him, for that matter. He makes demonstrably false statements, like the one abt Carson, then gets mad if anyone calls him on it.

        Yeah – we HAVE that President already. We do not need an Obaam 2.0.

    when you think about this what a great example

  10. helenk3 Says:

    backtrack bunch just announced they will take 10,000 syrian refugees. wonder how many will be persecuted Christians? let in the drug dealers and thugs through the southern borders, bring the terrorists through NYC and celebrate thugs already in the country.
    Gee I feel so secure NOT

    what is wrong with this picture?

    wouldn’t be easier to take in the people and let them go to the mosques in saudi arabia?

    • Rabble Rouser Reverend Amy Says:

      So, so, so much wrong with that picture, Helen…

    • kenoshamarge Says:

      If they don’t build Mosques in Germany some of those refugees may come back. And it seems none of the gulf states wants them. Nor do the refugees want to go to their neighboring countries. Nope gotta head off to someplace with a good, sound welfare system.

    these Baltimore cops are so screwed. They will not get a fair trial in that city.

    • Rabble Rouser Reverend Amy Says:

      Oh, good God, you have GOT to be kidding me. You are so right, Helen, they most definitely will NOT get a fair trial…

      • kenoshamarge Says:

        According to Greta this is a gift to the defense lawyers. Because it sets up a great case for appeal should they be found guilty. And who doesn’t think the stinkers in Baltimore will find them guilty?

    Jindal takes on the Trump ‘carnival act’ in a way Bush hasn’t https://www.yahoo.com/politics/jindal-takes-on-the-trump-carnival-act-in-a-way-128802124696.html

    Jindal’s best line IMO:

    “He hasn’t ever read the Bible. But you know why he hasn’t read the Bible? Because he’s not in it,” Jindal gibed.

    • Rabble Rouser Reverend Amy Says:

      Wasn’t that HILARIOUS?!?! I had stepped out on the porch to let DJ out, and Suzy paused Jindal’s speech so I could hear the whole thing, especially that line. Good for him for being a grown up and calling Trump out for not being one…

  18. helenk3 Says:


    what the hell is this??? I do not know this country anymore.

    • Rabble Rouser Reverend Amy Says:

      My head is abt to explode between this and the Dems giving this terrible deal to Obama on 9/11 Eve. What the hell has happened to this nation, and DEMOCRATS?!?!?

    • kenoshamarge Says:

      It would seem that some of those nice dependable liberal Jews have finally started to wonder if the Obama Administration has their, and Israel’s, best interests at heart. Once you try to stray from the fold the gloves come off. Anti-Semitism is accepted by the left when it comes from the left. STFU all you little anxious Jews, Obama and Kerry knows what’s best.

    CNN = Serious. Journalism.


    I agree that for a so called “news” organization this is really embarrassing. Adolescents running the show over there now?

    • Rabble Rouser Reverend Amy Says:

      So it would seem. I have tried to watch it once in a while, but even the reporting is TERRIBLE compared to the people at Fox. Ugh.

  21. helenk3 Says:


    this speech should go viral.
