Honoring the Victims and Heroes of September 11th: A Fresh Look

Twelve years ago today, Americans awoke to the news of the formerly unthinkable, a terrorist attack on our soil with massive casualties. Nearly 3,000 Americans perished in attacks orchestrated by Islamic jihadists, part of the decades-long war they had been fighting against America, unacknowledged by us.

Today we also sadly commemorate the one-year anniversary of the attack on American diplomats in Benghazi in which U.S. Ambassador J. Christopher Stevens and three others were killed by jihadists.

Honoring the memories of those who perished, the incredible bravery of the first responders, and the families who lost precious loved ones, requires two things:

(1) Acknowledging the truth about who attacked us and why, and (2) Vigilantly protecting against any possible future incidents. If we cannot do # 1 correctly, we will never be able to do #2.   Read more »

Benghazi - The 9-11 Attack Where Justice Has Not Been Served

One year ago today, U.S. Ambassador Christopher Stevens, Information Management Officer Sean Smith, and U.S. Navy Seals Glen Doherty and Tyrone Woods were killed during an attack on the American Consulate in Benghazi. One year later, no one has been held accountable for this abject failure of President Barack Obama's and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton's failure to provide either adequate security or to mount a rescue effort.   Read more »

The NRA Honors 9/11 Hero, NYPD Officer Walter Weaver and the 9/11 Revolver

NYPD Walter WeaverOn the morning of September 11, 2001, NYPD Police Officer Walter Weaver was scheduled to be off work. Instead, he filled in for another police officer. After the 9/11 terrorists crashed their planes into the World Trade Center Towers, Officer Weaver rushed into the burning North Tower. Reports indicate that he was attempting to free trapped victims from the North Tower when it collapsed. He was killed doing what heroes do - putting his life at risk that others may live.   Read more »

Ohio's Josh Mandel in Dead Heat in U.S. Senate Race - Interview with Glenn Beck

Recently I wrote an article titled, "The Road to the White House and Control of the Senate Drives Through Ohio".  As we come down to the wire, this race is neck and neck. Ohio State Treasurer Josh Mandel is challenging incumbant Senator Sherrod Brown. Brown recently earned the label of the Senate's most liberal senator, according to Mandel.

Previously, I interviewed the National Rifle Association's Jacqueline Otto about the importance of the Ohio race and what the NRA-ILA was doing to help Josh Mandel.  Otto told me that Josh Mandel was rated with an A from their organization and Sen. Brown had earned an F just like President Obama.    Read more »

Reflections upon a recent trip to New York

These are reflections from a recent trip to New York around Saint Patrick's Day.

Twice terrorists attacked the World Trade Center, the second being the attack on 9/11, but often forgotten is the first that occurred on February 26, 1993. That attack killed 6 people and injured a thousand more when an explosion erupted in a garage. The first attack was the first warning of what laid ahead. The 9/11 memorial venerates those who died in both attacks and reminds us of what happened so that this day should never be forgotten. Like the Phoenix rising from the ashes, four new versions of the World Trade Center will surround the 8 acre ground featuring two waterfall ponds

(VIDEO) Even 9/11 Truthers Join the Hodgepodge Crowd of OCcupy Wall Street

Even 9/11 Truthers are adding their voice among the growing and diverse list of grievances held by Occupy Wall Street protesters. Now we can add investigating the possible role of the government in the collapse of the buildings during the 9/11 attacks to all of the demands that the Occupy Crowd is making. So far the list of grievances includes ending all wars, stopping the increasing consolidation of wealth and power by the wealthy, and ending climate change.

Pete Sessions Statement on Commemorating 9/11

One decade has passed, yet the incomprehensible evil of the September 11, 2001 attacks remain vividly etched in the memory of all Americans. We will never forget watching heroic first responders swiftly aid their fellow Americans. We will never forget joining families, friends and strangers alike in mourning the great loss of nearly 3,000 innocent lives. Although our nation was attacked, we refused to allow the unspeakable violence to break our spirit and the goodness of America shined brightly through one of the darkest days in our nation’s history.   Read more »

Remembering 9/11 - State Senator (Lt. Colonel) Brian Birdwell, A Story of Survival and Grace

September 11, 2001 was one of those days that is seared in everyone's memory. Like you, I remember exactly where I was that morning. My mother (one of my best news sources) called me to tell me that someone had flown into one of the World Trade Center buildings. My immediate thought was a weather related issue. I was stunned when I turned on the television in my office and discovered a burning tower smoking before a stark, clear sky.
