New York Times: Airplane violence caused the collapse of the World Trade Center on September 11, 2001
The New York Times, whose official slogan is “All the news that’s fit to print,” vividly illustrated their twisted take on what they deem fit to print yesterday, tweeting the following of that truly evil event that occurred 18 years ago yesterday.
In other words, some act of senseless plane violence, perhaps by the planes’ pilots who aimed so carefully? Or perhaps accidentally? Who knows? As Rep Ilhan Omar (D-MN) so memorably expressed it, “Some people did something.” Some people…could have been anyone, perhaps some privileged American white folks who flash Benjamins. And anyway, what they did was just…something. No big deal.
WRONG! Apparently, there are still millions of people still alive who not only remember the horror of 9/11, they know that someone has to “aim” the planes and those who aimed the planes were not the pilots. They were…Muslims. Al Qaeda Muslims. Al Qaeda Muslim terrorists, financed by Muslim nations, perhaps Saudi Arabia, perhaps others, according to the 9/11 Commission Report, who hated America and all it stood for. And so, after many protests and just plain angry mockery, the NY Times felt compelled to delete the original tweet that apparently didn’t fill the need for truth in all the news millions require and replaced it with with a slightly more accurate version.

They updated the official death toll to “nearly 3000” from the earlier 2000 — still calling the victims “lost,” as if they wandered off into a forest in some strange land, never to be found after all this time, instead of the more accurate “deliberately slaughtered.” Their updated information includes those killed at the Pentagon in Washington DC and in the plane that crashed in the Pennsylvania field after the passengers fought back. This accurate death toll number is easily available to you and me and even to the NY Times’ famed fact-checkers, but for some reason the NY Times did not originally think all this information was fit to print.
May the memories of those who perished at the hands of the on that horrific day be remembered. May those who encouraged, planned, financed and rejoiced in this evil act meet their just end.
Democrats refuse to deport “11 million” illegal immigrants, but they have no problem confiscating 16 million AR-15s from law-abiding citizens.
On May 19, 2016, the New York Times ran a story asking, “What would it take to deport 11 million and build a wall?”
On September 29, 2016, the Nation asked, “What if the US really did deport 11 million people?”
Politico followed the June 27, 2019, Democrat presidential debate by suggesting candidates made a mistake by calling attention to “11 million” illegal immigrants without even asking, “Should there be any limit on who gets to come to the United States?”
Suffice it to say, “11 million” is a go-to figure for Democrats and their surrogates in the establishment media. And the “11 million” illegals are people the Democrats refuse to deport.
But Democrat presidential candidates such as Kamala Harris and Robert Francis “Beto” O’Rourke have no problem open talking about confiscating the 16 million-plus AR-15s owned by law-abiding citizens in this country. (The National Shooting Sports Foundation confirmed the figure of 16 million-plus to Breitbart.)
Harris, for her part, says she is not sure about the details on taking the guns, she only knows it would be a government-mandated buyback.
O’Rourke paints of a picture of taking the guns that makes it look simple as can be. During a weekend campaign stop in Manchester, New Hampshire, he made clear his belief that people will comply with an AR-15 ban, alleviating the need to send police door-to-door for the firearms.
Harris’ campaign website pledges she is dedicated to a “pathway to citizenship for the 11 million people living in our communities and contributing to our economy.” And on June 26, 2019, the New York Times reported O’Rourke wants “Congress to enact legislation that would create a path to citizenship for 11 million undocumented people and rewrite immigration rules to prioritize family unity.”
But the 16 million-plus AR-15s have to go.
Pressure is mounting on Congress to “do something” in response to recent mass shootings in Texas and Ohio. A poll released Monday confirms what has been true for years: namely, that Americans support new gun regulations.
As the Washington Post put it, Americans “overwhelmingly support expanded background checks for gun buyers and allowing law enforcement to temporarily seize weapons from troubled individuals.” That includes “at least 8 in 10 Republicans, white evangelical Christians, members of gun-owning households.”
Democrats have a big advantage on the issue, with a 51% of Americans trusting them on the gun issue, and only 36% trusting Trump.
Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) has blocked knee-jerk gun control efforts in the past, but has said he will follow President Donald Trump’s lead. For the president, the issue presents a dilemma: he risks handing the Democrats an election issue if he does nothing, but risks losing support from his base if he compromises on guns.
Fortunately, there is a solution that could allow both sides to claim victory. Trump and McConnell could agree, on condition, to “expanded” background checks (a placebo, since most mass shooters pass background checks).
In return, they would demand universal reciprocal concealed carry — that states honor each other’s decisions to grant specific individuals the right to carry concealed weapons after an additional application.
According to scholar John Lott, Jr., the most important measure to lower gun violence — perhaps counter-intuitively — is expanding concealed carry. Criminals are less likely to shoot if someone may shoot back.
Trump could expand the Second Amendment’s reach while expanding background checks — and do the one thing that might actually address the problem.
To summarize: Congress could make concealed carry universal in exchange for requiring background checks on the small percentage of sales that don’t involve them. Trump would defuse the Democrats’ issue while expanding gun rights.
It seems like a no-brainer, and a way to prevent Democrats from taking it all in 2020 — in which case, there will be expanded background checks plus new restrictions on guns, in exchange for nothing and for no benefit.
The Trayvon Hoax That Divided America Is About to Be Exposed
On Monday. September 16, Joel Gilbert will preview his new documentary, “The Trayvon Hoax,” in the 500-seat Ballroom of the National Press Club in Washington, D.C. The screening begins at 1 p.m. Admission is free, and Gilbert is encouraging all interested parties to come see for themselves what could be a game-changer in the way the media report racially-charged news. Gilbert’s findings are that significant.
Having written a book on the 2012 shooting death of Trayvon Martin — If I Had a Son— I have been following Gilbert’s progress with interest. In fact, I introduced Gilbert to George Zimmerman, the man who shot Martin. Those who have followed the case know that not since the Scottsboro boys has any ordinary citizen endured the kind of malicious and conspicuously false reporting Zimmerman has. My hope was that Gilbert would set the record straight.
Gilbert has done that and more. In the course of his relentless research into the shooting and subsequent trial, I can say without risk of overstatement that he has unearthed a legal fraud the likes of which I know no parallel. Not only has Gilbert discovered it, but he has also proved it six ways from Sunday, including DNA and handwriting analysis.

If I were Trayvon Martin’s parents or his family’s attorneys, I would be very nervous right now. If I were Florida state attorneys who prosecuted the case, I would be more nervous still. And if I were the media who covered this case — are you listening Matt Gutman and Lisa Bloom? — I would prepare to be mortified. The coverage of this case was a disgrace from day one.
To uncover this staggering fraud, Gilbert did what reporters used to do. He immersed himself in the milieu that produced Trayvon Martin. He mastered the patois of urban black Miami. He reviewed the thousands of text messages, tweets, Facebook and Instagram postings sent and received by Martin and his friends. He interviewed George Zimmerman and heard, from the only person who knew, Martin’s final words, words that revealed the cause of Martin’s tragic downward spiral.
Gilbert did some serious shoe leather reporting as well. He visited all the relevant Miami-area high schools, the neighborhoods where Martin and his friends hung out, the streets of Miami’s Little Haiti, and the town community where Martin died.
At the end of his research, Gilbert knew Trayvon Martin better than his parents did, literally. As their deposition revealed, they had no idea how Martin’s life had descended into a violent mix of street fighting, guns, drugs, burglary, and sex. Although both parents made good incomes, their separate lives created an abyss where a home should have been, and their once promising son fell straight to the bottom of it.
Unwilling to accept their own responsibility for his demise, they took the bait promised by the family attorneys and sweetened by the media and projected their guilt on to George Zimmerman. Although an Obama supporter and civil rights activist, the half-Hispanic Zimmerman proved to be just white enough to play the “racist” killer role in the unholy melodrama that followed.
In the documentary and even more so in the accompanying book of the same name, the Trayvon Hoax, Gilbert shows how politicians — are you listening Andrew Gillum and Barack Obama? — exploited the ensuing racial divisions to further their political goals. The gratuitous anger the media and political class stoked throughout this case led to the creation of Black Lives Matter, the parallel Ferguson hoax, and a crime wave that that has devastated black America.
All of this was based on one spectacular fraud, and Joel Gilbert uncovered it. The film trailer and website will be live on Thursday, Sept 12. “The Trayvon Hoax,” book and documentary, will be released and available on Amazon later this week in DVD, digital, paperback, and ebook formats.
Yet another greenie expedition to the Arctic to raise awareness of ‘global warming’ has been scuppered by unexpected large quantities of ice. This brings to a total of six the number of Ship of Fools expeditions where weather reality has made a mockery of climate theory.
According to Maritime Bulletin:
Arctic tours ship MS MALMO with 16 passengers on board got stuck in ice on Sep 3 off Longyearbyen, Svalbard Archipelago, halfway between Norway and North Pole. The ship is on Arctic tour with Climate Change documentary film team, and tourists, concerned with Climate Change and melting Arctic ice. All 16 Climate Change warriors were evacuated by helicopter in challenging conditions, all are safe. 7 crew remains on board, waiting for Coast Guard ship assistance.
The reporter, Erofey Schkvarkin clearly has a sense of humour. He adds:
Something is very wrong with Arctic ice, instead of melting as ordered by UN/IPCC, it captured the ship with Climate Change Warriors.
It appears the mainstream media has failed to get the memo. Here is a tweet from Reuters which appeared after the ship got stuck in ice. (h/t Stewgreen)
The town of Longyearbyen, Norway, is the northernmost — and the fastest-warming — town in the world, where glaciers melt, coffins rise from permafrost and avalanches sweep away houses.

Here is the Ship of Fools list of shame
Ship of Fools 1 Australian climate researcher Chris Turkey and a crew of climate alarmists on a mission to demonstrate just how much Antarctic ice has been affected by global warming get stuck in unexpectedly thick ice and have to be rescued by helicopter.
Ship of Fools II Arctic expedition led by veteran explorer David Hempleman-Adams to raise awareness of “permanent irreversible change in the sea ice landscape of the Arctic” caused by global warming is ruined by unexpectedly large quantities of ice.
Ship of Fools III Global warming research study in Canada cancelled because of ice. “It became clear to me very quickly that these weren’t just heavy ice conditions, these were unprecedented ice conditions” claims the lead scientist, blaming it on “climate change fully in action” and calling it “a wake up call for all of us in this country.”
Ship of Fools IV Arctic Mission sailing expedition to North Pole to raise awareness of global warming has to turn back after yachts find their passage blocked by large quantities of unexpected frozen white substance.
Ship of Fools V Scientists, students, filmmakers from University of Rhode Island’s Inner Space Center on a mission to “document climate change effects” in the Canadian Arctic Archipelago have to be rescued after the ship is damaged after grounding on unexpected hard, bluey-white substance floating on the sea.
Do you think someone up there is trying to tell these people something?
Sanders Says ‘Population Control’ Would Be Part of His Climate Agenda
Bernie Sanders told the CNN townhall on climate change that he would make population control part of his agenda to fight global warming.
Washington Free Beacon:
An audience member asked Sanders about “educating everyone on the need to curb population growth.”
“Human population growth has more than doubled in the past 50 years. The planet cannot sustain this growth. I realize this is a poisonous topic for politicians, but it’s crucial to face,” the audience member asked. “Empowering women and educating everyone on the need to curb population growth seems a reasonable campaign to enact. Would you be courageous enough to discuss this issue and make it a key feature of a plan to address climate catastrophe?”
“The answer is yes,” Sanders responded. “And the answer has everything to do with the fact that women in the United States of America, by the way, have a right to control their own bodies and make reproductive decisions.”
Bernie Sanders: Abortion Helps Curb Population Growth to Combat Climate Change
“Population control” as a measure to save the planet has been shown to be horse manure six ways from Sunday. It’s the old Malthusian nightmare that population growth is potentially exponential while the growth of the food supply is linear. But Malthusianism fails to account for human ingenuity in using technology and improved methods to massively increase the potential food supply.
Population hysteric Paul Erlich: wrote:
Stanford University biologist Paul Ehrlich wrote that “Most of the people who are going to die in the greatest cataclysm in the history of man have already been born.” He added that by 1975, “some experts feel that food shortages will have escalated the present level of world hunger and starvation into famines of unbelievable proportions.” In 1970, he revised his prediction for the worse to warn us, as Perry writes, that “between 1980 and 1989, some 4 billion people, including 65 million Americans, would perish in the ‘Great Die-Off.'”
It wasn’t just food that would disappear. Erlich and Nobel economist Julian Simon made a famous bet about commodities in 1980:
Ultimately, Simon challenged Ehrlich to a wager. Ehrlich believed that population growth meant increased scarcity and, hence, higher commodity prices. Simon believed that “more people meant more brains,” which means better extraction technologies, more efficient methods of production, and the more efficient use of commodities—all of which lead to lower commodity prices.
The bet itself was meant to determine whether commodity prices would rise or fall over the period from 1980-1990. If they fell, that would mean that the commodities became more abundant. If instead they rose, that would have signaled that commodities became scarcer. Simon was willing to bet that over any number of years, inflation-adjusted commodity prices would fall.
Needless to say, Simon won.
Simon’s theory proved remarkably prescient. In 1970, China and India were net importers of food. By the end of the decade, both nations were exporting food. And yet, Erlich was predicting the worst famines in human history in those two nations by the 1980s.
If we take Simon’s theory to heart, more people means more brains working on the problem of climate change. But liberals’ brains aren’t wired to think that way. Sanders believes in addition by subtraction — a wholly ignorant and illogical way of thinking that would lead us to catastrophe.
Advocating population control leads to all sorts of evils, including eugenics, forced sterilizations, and infanticide. But if it’s going save us from global warming…
I’ll take my chances.
A real gun fight is underway in America today, and it doesn’t target criminals or gang members who possess guns. It’s a fight waged against law-abiding citizens and their right to own and use firearms of their choice for self-defense or other lawful purposes.
Red flag laws are a classic example of how the anti-gun lobby wants to choke off the Second Amendment rights of law-abiding citizens. These laws slowly erode our rights by creating a judicial mechanism that allows law enforcement to come to a gun owner’s home and seize lawfully owned firearms, based on mere accusations about the gun owner’s mental health or his potential dangerous future behavior.
It’s fairly obvious that violent convicted felons and people who are seriously mentally ill with violent tendencies should never have firearms. Yet people like this are turned loose by prisons and jails every day to wreak havoc on our streets, with or without guns. In spite of this reality, “progressives” want the law-abiding citizens disarmed. They want ordinary Americans to depend on government to protect our lives — that’s the same government that can’t keep Jeffrey Epstein alive while locked up in a 10-by-10-foot cell. …
The murder rate in Baltimore has skyrocketed with dozens more killed by the end of August compared to this time last year.
The Baltimore police reported that by this past weekend, 232 residents have been murdered. But by this time last year, only 199 had died, according to WJZ Cannel 13.
With four months to go in 2018, Baltimore seems poised to smash last year’s total of 309 murders — though 2018 was down slightly over the 343 murdered in 2017. With only 196 murders, the year 2011 has been the only year in nearly 20 years that the murder rate fell below 210 homicides, and the death rate has been well over 300 in each of the last three years.
Last year, the FBI reported Baltimore’s per capita crime rate was higher than any other American city with a population over 500,000 citizens.
The bureau added overall, across the U.S. violent crime had fallen by .2 percent from 2016 to 2017, a statistic that makes Baltimore’s rising rate really stand out.
David Kennedy, a professor at John Jay College of Criminal Justice in New York City, slammed the city for its complete failure to address the rising crime rates. Kennedy insisted that Baltimore ha been “unable to muster any kind of strategic and lasting response” to the violence besetting the city.
Meet the ’super pro-cop’ gorgeous young Latina running for Congress who calls herself ‘the anti-AOC’
Catalina Lauf is 26-years-old and running for Congress in Illinois, hoping to unseat a Democrat incumbent and push aside Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez as the youngest woman ever to be elected to Congress. Kyle S. Reyes of Law Enforcement Today writes:
She’s a young Latina. She’s from Illinois. She’s running for Congress. And she’s the polar opposite of Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.
She’s conservative. She’s smart. She’s gorgeous. She supports law enforcement. She actually loves America. Her idol is Ronald Reagan. And she’s not afraid to ruffle feathers.

Her name is Catalina Lauf, and she’s 26-years-old. Her goal is to steal a Democratic-held seat outside Chicago.
Ms. Lauf announced her bid for the GOP Primary in the 14th Congressional District of Illinois, a GOP-leaning district cover a swath of western suburbs of Chicago.
In the last census, Illinois 14 was 85.8% white, 12.2% Hispanic, 3.8% Asian, and 2.9% black, and is rated by the Cook Political Report as leaning Republican by 5%. In the 2018 election, Democrat Laura Underwood defeated Republican incumbent Randy Hultgren with a 5% margin of victory as part of a midterm wave of suburban districts going donkey.
According to AT’s polling guru Richard Baehr, if Lauf is able to clear the GOP field and get on the general election ballot, she has good chance of winning the seat.
As AOC has demonstrated, a good-looking young woman who speaks out with attention-grabbing rhetoric can have an impact on the national debate, even in the face of progrssive media. The national media would find the comarison irresistable.
