  1. How quickly America forgot. The Islamic call to prayer is now ringing out over those same streets where Americans fell after they jumped out of windows. The mayor bypassed rules and approved the adhan (the call to prayer that declares Allah is the only god and the greatest god and mohammad is his prophet) so it is a victory that 9/11 didn’t finish. We learned nothing.

  2. Oh. That terrible day.
    If there were modern images in Dante’s Inferno, they would be there.
    If you saw, you saw.
    That terrible day. And everything about it.

  3. First time this video has been made public, apparently:


    The world shifted on its axis that morning.

    Just shows that everything can change in a moment. So easy to be lulled to sleep in our comfortable world, to forget how our lives hang by a mere thread. This is not heaven, this world we live in for the eternal equivalent of a moment or two. As my Priest said in his Homily yesterday – the only moment that truly matters is your final moment when the candle is lit. And every moment until then should be oriented toward it.

    Matt 6: 19-21

    1. I forgot to mention, best watch that video with the sound turned off … much taking of the Lord’s name in vain – not necessarily surprising, these persons possibly noticing eternity opening up to them for the first time in their lives.

  4. Please please tell me you do not believe the govt narrative. Remember building seven? And tell me again how some rookie flight students flew two commercial airliners at sea level into a very narrow target and the aluminum of both aircraft, which would have been obliterated by something as solid as a flock of geese in flight, somehow flew through a grid of iron beams into buildings which then turned to powder in a matter of hours. Because jet fuel.

    Islam is a false religion and dangerous political movement. But our three letter agencies have used them as the patsy here. The decades long wars which have funded their takeover of our freedoms and for which this attack was a pretext are themselves the pretext for bringing radicalized islamists to our shores in massive numbers. More problems, for which you can bet they have more solutions.

    Let us mourn the attacks and pray for the victims, but please, open your eyes, the enemy is within.

    1. I mentioned George W. Bush’s 20th anniversary speech in Shanksville, PA below. I’ll quote it here:

      “We have seen growing evidence that the dangers to our country can come not only across borders but from violence that gathers within. There is little cultural overlap between violent extremists abroad and violent extremists at home. But in their disdain for pluralism, in their disregard for human life, in their determination to defile national symbols, they are children of the same foul spirit and it is our continuing duty to confront them.”

      He is unambiguously comparing the atrocities of September 11, 2001 to the theater of January 6th, 2021.

      This goes along with Dick Cheney doing a political ad calling Donald Trump the greatest “threat to our republic” in its history. This, from another man who had a front row seat for the largest civilian carnage ever witnessed on American soil. But somehow challenging an election filled with middle-of-the-night counting shutdowns in swing states and countless statistically impossible anomalies is a greater threat to the republic than the attacks that killed three thousand Americans and justified two decades of war.

      If 9/11 was what we were told it was, there’s no way the President and Vice President the attacks happened under could trivialize and politicize that day with such grotesque comparisons. In both cases, they’re shifting the focus away from Islamists and foreign threats, and making Americans of a certain race and political persuasion the new evildoers. And the agency they both helped create officially concurs by repeatedly citing imaginary and undefined “white supremacists” as the nation’s greatest threat, and the government’s primary target.

      It’s hard to get past the idea that this was the goal all along. That the creation of Homeland Security was never intended to protect us from foreign radicals, but to be an American Stasi to protect the ruling class from the people.

      I don’t know exactly what happened that day. But I know these wicked men lie as effortlessly as they breathe, and there’s no good reason to believe a word they’ve said about anything. So… I don’t.

  5. I worked in NYC in my 20s. I used to love getting stuck in traffic on Canal Street, opening the sunroof, looking up and just losing myself in the view. It was such a surreal, magical sight, especially when it snowed and the towers vanished in the mist.

    I’ll always remember, but I’m not completely sure what I’m never forgetting at this point. The vastness of the COVID lie, and the extent to which everybody really was in on it, has forced me to go back and re-examine everything I once thought I knew about the major events that marked the times in my life. And seeing George W Bush use the occasion of the 20th anniversary of 9/11 to call attention to the threat of January 6th extremists was my official break the 9/11 narrative I’d always believed.

    But no matter, real people with real families perished that day. A lot of them. God rest every one of their souls, and may He grant peace to those families.
