September 11 – We still remember (bumped)

by Skip September 11, 2017

Updated (again) and bumped from 9/11/12: I just reread this – angrily.  For you see, our President, whose main responsibility is to the Constitution, the nation, and its people – to keep them safe.  Yet, this President, whose main policy is Determined Weakness, has no problem in using the might of the United States to […]

by Skip September 11, 2017

I made a promise – GraniteGrok will not forget Eugen; this day we still remember what happened 15 16 years ago today: 9/11/2001.  We were attacked by Islamic radicals, Muslim terrorists, that believed that the United States must be removed from the world in order for a world-wide caliphate to be enacted.  Their ideological descendents, ISIS […]

Guest Post by Peter Lemiska: How did America become so naïve?

by Skip March 22, 2017

How did America become so naïve? Considering America’s 240-year history, 16 years is not a long time.  But for some, it’s long enough to forget the outrage and fear all Americans felt after the terrorist attacks on September 11, 2001. Nineteen hate-filled Muslim extremists exploited our flawed immigration controls and came to our country for […]

Is anyone else tired of politicians and gun-grabbers unwilling to say the obvious?

by Skip June 26, 2016

From the Union Leader: Kuster said Congress must act to expand background checks for gun sales at shows and online, and if a suspected terrorist is considered too dangerous to fly, they should not be able to buy a gun. No, it is NOT that “they should not be able to buy a gun” – […]

Trump is a POS

by Kimberly Morin January 17, 2016

I’m not allowed to say what I truly think about Trump for this Twitter post. This is a family blog after all. I will NEVER vote for this candidate. EVER.

College Students: why were we attacked on 9/11/01?

by Skip September 13, 2015

Sad, really sad, given the major effects it has had on the US over the last 14 years: Question: why does it have to be taught in the classroom – given that every years since the attack the US has de facto set aside “memorial time” to reflect on who did the attack and the […]

9/11 Fourteenth remembrance – “God Bless the USA”

by Skip September 11, 2015

I think it appropriate on this day, the 14th year anniversary of being attacked by Islamic Jihadists.  Have we learned from this event?  What have we learned?  Or is it safe to say, on this day where we honor that whose lives were taken by murderers who brook no dissent from Koranic teachings, perhaps not, […]

by Skip August 12, 2014

To Protect and Serve…Something something….

by Steve MacDonald July 16, 2014

Plumber……Telegram….Flowers…Candy Gram…911 Several police officers in Durham, N.C., reportedly got into homes and searched them by telling residents police had received 911 hang-up calls from their addresses, according to news reports. The tactic, a way around the requirement to get a warrant to search a home, was described in court by a Durham officer identified as A.B. […]

Don’t Forget…You Usually Can’t Call 911 Until After A Crime is being Committed.

by Steve MacDonald September 30, 2013

If you call 911 before there is an “emergency,” or more to the point, in the absence of one, you can get in a lot of trouble.   You can even be charged with a crime.  (Even if McDonald’s is out of McNuggets.)  So 911 does not exist to secure your property or person.   911 does […]

This 9/11, Obama wants us to fight for Al Qaeda in Syria

by Skip September 11, 2013

Does he think us that stupid that we have forgotten that Al Qaeda turned airliners into bombs? (H/T: Liberal Logic 101) I think I prefer this one – a rememberance of a true “move forward” against those same Al Qaeda

by Skip September 9, 2013

A while ago, a Muslim group called  AMPAC, announced a “Million Muslim March” in DC on 9/11 (reformatted, emphasis mine): The American Muslim Political Action Committee is hosting what it hopes will be a gathering of one million people in Washington, D.C., on the 12th anniversary of 9/11 to urge the government to reveal “the […]

Benghazi You Tube Video Takes Out….Jay Carney?

by Steve MacDonald October 9, 2012

White House Press Secretary Jay Carney is missing.  He may have been taken out by a You Tube Video. I’m not sure if it’s this one, or one like it, but it probably has something to do with “Ambassador Died – Obama Lied.”  Ever since the truth started leaking out, the regimes press-puppet has gotten […]

9/11 – one man’s tribute

by Skip September 10, 2011

This speaks for many.  A horrific event, now ten years in the past.  A soft, heartfelt offering: This has raised hackles on the Left on the meme of he’s just a candidate. Be sure of this, however, one does not hang Patriotism at the door simply because they’re a candidate.  Nor does ten years mean […]
