America, You Asked For It!

Political News and Commentary from the Right

9 years later…

Nine years ago today, I was in my driveway working on equipment, getting it ready to go and cut hay, when my wife came to the door and told me plane had just hit the World Trade Center. At that moment I knew radical Muslim terrorists had landed a blow like our country had never felt. I came inside and watched the news coverage, shaking my head and cursing the commentators and their guests who speculated this could have been an accident. There was no doubt in my mind.

And then the second plane. At that point everyone knew what I did from the first impact. Then the Pentagon and next the plane that went down in Pennsylvania.

In those first minutes we could only estimate the number of dead at the hand of these bloodthirsty, heartless, cold-blooded murderers. The number 10,000 stuck in my head. In the end, after days, weeks, and months, we learned the number was only ~3,000. THREE THOUSAND died in one attack on United States soil.

I was surprised by the surge in patriotism that coursed across America in the wake of the attacks. Our country became galvanized, a great majority calling for our enemy’s blood. Our cities, towns, and rural areas were awash in a sea of American flags as citizens rallied to demonstrate to the world we would not be defeated, neither destroyed. Likely surprising the Muslim murderers who sought to cripple us, American morale had never been higher in my lifetime.

Nine years later, we have broadcast withdrawal time lines for our armed forces who continue the fight against radical Muslim terrorists who continue to want to destroy us. Today we’ll likely see more flags flying than usual, but it won’t compare to the red, white, and blue that appeared in the months following the attacks. Sadly, too many have already forgotten.

Forgotten the lives of those lost.

I will never forget.

Today, in honor of those who died, my wife and I will participate in the Sara Low 5K at Batesville, AR. Sara Low was a flight attendant on American Airlines flight 11, the first plane to crash into the World Trade Center. She was a graduate of Batesville High School and proceeds from this race provide a scholarship in her honor that is awarded to a graduating senior from the school each year.

If you haven’t found a way to honor the memories of the victims of 9/11, please do so.

May God bless America, and may we eventually be successful in eradicating the radical Muslim terrorists who declared war on us.

Never, never forget!

Supreme Court to Face Mecca

by Ann Coulter at Townhall.com

Americans can thank the Supreme Court for the attempted car bombing of Times Square, as well as any future terrorist attacks that might be less “amateurish” and which our commander in chief will be unable to thwart unless the bomb fizzles.

Over blistering dissents by Justices Antonin Scalia, Clarence Thomas, John Roberts and Samuel Alito, five Supreme Court justices have repeatedly voted to treat jihadists like turnstile jumpers. (Thanks, Justice Kennedy!)

That’s worked so well that Obama’s own attorney general is now talking about making massive exceptions to the Miranda warnings — exceptions that will apply to all criminal suspects, by the way — in order to deal with terrorists having to be read their rights as a bomb is about to go off.

Let’s be clear: When Eric Holder thinks we’re being too easy on terrorists, we are being too easy on terrorists.

Either the five liberal justices demanding constitutional rights for terrorists are out of their minds, or the religious worship of President Franklin D. Roosevelt has got to stop. According to liberal logic in the war on terrorism, FDR was a bloodthirsty war criminal.

When six Germans and two Americans were suspected of plotting an attack on U.S. munitions plants during World War II, FDR immediately ordered them arrested and tried in a secret military tribunal held behind closed doors at the Department of Justice.

Within weeks, all were found guilty. Six of the eight, including one U.S. citizen, were given the electric chair. One German was sentenced to life in prison and the other American citizen — who had turned himself in and revealed the plot to the FBI — got 30 years.

The Supreme Court upheld the secret trial, but didn’t get around to producing an opinion until after Old Sparky had rendered its own verdict.

Project 2,996 Needs You

September 11 is almost upon us. The anniversary of the worst attack in history on US soil is always a somber time for those of us who watched in horror as almost 3,000 died. Blogger Dale Challener Roe has created Project 2,996 to honor the memory of each and every one of the victims of this atrocious attack.

Roe seeks bloggers to tell the story of every victim on the anniversary of the attacks. Now, a little more than a week from 9/11/09, fewer than 700 have signed on. Roe has made it easy to be a part of the project. Even if you don’t have your own blog, you can sign up to help us honor those who died that fateful day.
