In the Wall Street Journal today, Dorothy Rabinowitz has an editorial that hammers Ron Paul for what she describes as his consistent history of being one of “the best-known of our homegrown propagandists for our chief enemies in the world.” She gives one example after another of Paul’s statements essentially blaming the United States for the September 11 attacks:

WALL STREET JOURNAL – Dorothy Rabinowitz: Ron Paul’s supporters are sure of one thing: Their candidate has always been consistent—a point Dr. Paul himself has been making with increasing frequency. It’s a thought that comes up with a certain inevitability now in those roundtables on the Republican field. One cable commentator genially instructed us last Friday, “You have to give Paul credit for sticking to his beliefs.”

He was speaking, it’s hardly necessary to say, of a man who holds some noteworthy views in a candidate for the presidency of the United States. One who is the best-known of our homegrown propagandists for our chief enemies in the world. One who has made himself a leading spokesman for, and recycler of, the long and familiar litany of charges that point to the United States as a leading agent of evil and injustice, the militarist victimizer of millions who want only to live in peace.

Hear Dr. Paul on the subject of the 9/11 terror attacks—an event, he assures his audiences, that took place only because of U.S. aggression and military actions. . . . Read More

My guess is that this has very little impact on Ron Paul’s standing in Iowa. His supporters there seem committed to him, without regard, or perhaps because of his Foreign Policy views. Paul seems on track to win in Iowa, and the caucus system will assist in that outcome greatly.

Opinion Piece Hammers Ron Paul as One of “the Best-Known of our Homegrown Propagandists for our Chief Enemies in the World”

Here is audio of conservative radio host Mark Levin blasting Ron Paul for saying there was “glee” in the George W. Bush Administration following the September 11 Attacks on the United States.

Paul made the comments Thursday night, saying the “glee” was because they wanted to use it as a pretext for invading Iraq:

Levin called the remarks an “outrageous smear,” and said flatly that the remarks show that Ron Paul is “a crackpot.”

Here is raw video from today of President Obama and family serving food at a D.C. soup kitchen in observance of “what the spirit of remembering 9/11 is all about.” This continues Obama’s now multi-year push to turn observances of 9/11 into a “day of service.”

Certainly, public service is a good thing. Helping others is a good thing. But there is great value in taking time to reflect on and remember what happened on September 11, 2001, and who it was that attacked America. The United States was attacked by Islamic Jihadists who hate what our nation stands for – freedom and tolerance of other religions besides Islam. The attackers, and those like them, viewed Americans as infidels, and our support of Israel is anathema to them. They desire to destroy any person or nation who stands in the way of radical Islamic domination of the world. These are the realities that many on the Left want to conveniently ignore and forget.

Serving others is admirable, and noble. But failing to face the reality of who attacked our nation – and why – on September 11, 2001, is not.

Former President George W. Bush speaks at the Flight 93 memorial in Shanksville, Pennsylvania. The memorial is dedicated to the 40 passengers and crew who courageously fought back against their hijackers on September 11, 2001. President Bush called it “one of the most courageous acts in U.S. history.”

10 Years Later: Remember September 11, 2001 – The Day in Video

Here is newly released audio from American Airlines Flight 11 that slammed into the World Trade Center’s North Tower on September 11, 2001. You hear cockpit recordings, and then the voice of one of the Flight Attendants relaying information that someone had been “stabbed” in business class, and no one was answering the phone in the cockpit. The voice of lead hijacker Mohammed Atta is also heard, telling everyone to stay seated and be calm, that the plane would be returning to the airport. Shortly thereafter, he flew it into the World Trade Center North Tower.

Here is newly released raw video from September 11, 2001 showing the smoke plume that rose into the sky near Shanksville, Pennsylvania following the crash of United Flight 93. The raw video was shot by a man who lived nearby and heard the crash. He then shot video of the smoke rising into the air in the distance and talked about what he heard and saw.

The brave passengers of United Flight 93 charged the cockpit of the airplane and prevented the terrorist hijackers from crashing it into its intended target – likely the U.S. Capitol or the White House.

Here is just released raw video footage of the World Trade Center on September 11, 2001, taken from a New York Police Department Helicopter.

Though it has been close to 10 years since that terrible day, this brings back the memories of it like it was yesterday. It should remind us all that we must never forget, and be constantly vigilant so that it never happens again. The same Islamic Jihadist ideology that led to that attack is still at work in people today – enemies of the United States who are looking for another opportunity to strike.

Newly Released NYPD Video Shows World Trade Center on 9/11 from Helicopter – Video 9/11/2001

Byron York has written an outstanding article in the Washington Examiner in which he makes the case that September 11 should always be observed as a National Day of Solemn Remembrance – not as just another day of “AmeriCorps” like “Service.” It’s not that there’s anything wrong with community service. But York contends that President Obama’s attempt to redefine September 11 actually serves to diminish and drain away its meaning:

WASHINGTON EXAMINER: Obama, a former community organizer, has often expressed support for redefining September 11 as a day of community service. Indeed, in April 2009 he signed into law the Edward M. Kennedy Serve America Act, which, in addition to pouring billions of dollars into AmeriCorps and the Corporation for National and Community Service, officially designated September 11 as a “National Day of Service and Remembrance.”

But if 9/11, which saw radical Islamic terrorists kill 3,000 people in New York, Washington and Pennsylvania, and which marked the beginning of America’s war on terrorism — if 9/11 is about community service, what makes it different from other days that are also about community service? When the government urges Americans to observe 9/11 by recycling, or helping paint a homeless shelter, or volunteering at a computer literacy center, then how is 9/11 different from, say, National Youth Service Day? Or the Martin Luther King Day of Service? Or All Corps Service Day? Or Earth Day, for that matter? . . . . . Read More

York is right. September 11 is a solemn day to remember – as painful as that is – what happened to our nation on that awful day. We were attacked on our soil, and nearly 3,000 of our citizens were killed. The great sacrifice made by those who died, and by their families, is worthy of being focused on and remembered in its own right. September 11 speaks for itself, and it does not call for redefinition or mixed messages.

Here is video of President George W. Bush addressing the nation on the evening of September 11, 2001, at the end of the long and devastating day. Bush reassured the nation that while terrorists could shake the “foundations of our biggest buildings,” but they could not shake the “foundations of America.”

Here is video of former First Lady Laura Bush speaking at a September 11 Remembrance Ceremony today in Pennsylvania, where Flight 93 went down as a result of the heroes who stormed the cockpit and brought it down short of the intended target in Washington D.C.

“Over the years, we’ve learned the stories of those last minutes aboard Flight 93. Passengers placed calls to authorities to warn them of the hijacking. We know they called family members to assure them of their love, and to tell them of their plans. One passenger called his wife and said: “I know we’re all going to die. There’s three of us that are going to do something about it. I love you, honey.”

And we know that in the midst of their fear, they were calmed by their faith. A crew member called her husband and told him they were going to rush the hijackers. Over the phone line he heard other passengers whispering the 23rd Psalm – “Yea though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil. For Thou art with me….”

Nine years ago in the skies above this field, and in Washington and in New York City, we saw the worst of our enemies and the best of our nation.”

What an absolutely wonderful and powerful speech.

Here is video of President Obama speaking this morning at the Pentagon in observance of the ninth anniversary of the September 11 attacks on the United States.

Obama made no reference to the attacks being carried out by Islamic Jihadists. Instead, he referred to the hijackers who carried out the attacks as a “sorry band of men who perverted religion.” Obama declared, “As Americans we are not, and never will be, at war with Islam.”
