eptember eleventh will be remembered as the
day America finally woke up and became a Republic again. For
decades she has slept in the false comfort of an imaginary defense
political correctness, and Godless buffoons.
For years the Left have tried to change her
from a constitutional republic to a socialist democracy. I say,
if the Left truly want to live in a socialist democracy then they
should go find one. There are plenty to choose from in this
world. And I'll bet the Left would have no problem finding an
American who would be willing to pay their airfare.
For far too long the Left have weakened our
Republic with their liberal policies and their political agendas.
They care nothing for this Republic, nor for which she stands.
And with the attacks on the eleventh as exhibit "A" the Left has
decimated her ability to even defend herself. And the hands of the
liberal media are just as bloody. For decades they have rammed the
Left's agenda down the throat of America. Oh yes, I'm upset,
very upset and I blame them. I blame them all! And what's
more, I say to them "Give me back my Republic!"
They've tainted her and stained her.
They've battered her and bloodied her--almost beyond recognition, but
I know her. I know her well. She's the one with God on
her side. The one the world envies but loves to criticize.
She's the one standing high above twisted metal-flesh suicides.
The one who holds us together when humanity threatens to fall
apart. She's the one our forefathers wrought. The
one the Left abhor. The same one I myself adore. Oh yes,
I know her. I know her very well. And unlike them,
I will care for her and bring her back to good health. I will
appreciate her and never forget her. I will never abandon or
ever neglect her, for she is my country, my Republic, and
forever she will stand.
Since the 70's, liberal policies have
hamstrung the NSA, CIA and FBI. The Left believe these agencies are
anti-progressive, which in their
view means these agencies do nothing but "bad things." And so,
over the past thirty years the liberals have crippled the very
agencies that were created to protect our country, our liberty, and
More recently, while in office Bill Clinton,
the man who swore to protect our nation, our Constitution, and our
people, prevented the CIA from doing its job. I suspect Clinton
did this to cover-up his own
treasonous activities, but he did
Clinton and his cronies, John Deutch the
CIA Director and his assistant Nora Slatkin,
implemented a policy that kept the
agency from employing informants who had violated human rights.
This policy was the brainchild of Senator Robert Torricelli who led
congressional efforts in the mid-1990s to keep the CIA in check, but
he now has the audacity to wonder what went wrong. Well Mr.
Torricelli, I'll tell you what went wrong. You and the Clinton
administration left America vulnerable to attacks. Liberals like
you believe your leftist views are good for America, when in fact,
they are not. I hold you, the liberal media and the Clinton
administration responsible for the attacks and the deaths that
occurred on the eleventh.
The "Torricelli Principle" eliminated the CIA's
ability to employ terrorists, criminals and anyone else who had
information on people or groups our government was investigating.
And just to show how much of a lowlife these people really are, both
Torricelli went on national
television and denied having any responsibility for a policy they
created, advocated and inacted. And just like times of old, the
liberal media spoonfeed the Left's malarky to America. This tells
me nothing has changed. America is still being lied to and
liberal policies that led to our current crisis will continue to be
implemented. The real tragedy in all of this is only a few
Americans are questioning the motives of these people, and the rest of
America is swallowing the Left's bullshit.
Now I shouldn't have to remind anyone of
Clinton shaking his finger at America, looking us square in the face
and telling us a lie. I can't believe anything that spews
out of that man's mouth. Absolutely nothing! For me, his
motives, his actions and his words cannot be taken at face
value. Clinton does everything for a reason, and I believe that
reason is normally money. God only knows what damage Clinton
and the rest of the liberals have caused to our national security.
But alas, I fear we Americans shall soon learn the true legacy of the
Clinton administration and what harm he has done to our Republic.
For instance, the airliner that hit the
south tower probably could have been intercepted had it not been for
Clinton. Before Clinton entered office,
New York City had an
air defense. A fighter wing in New Jersey protected the Big
Apple and could have prevented the second plane from hitting the World
Trade Center, but because Clinton cut defense, he had the fighter
wing closed. When the first plane hit the north tower, the
closest fighter wing that could respond to the attack was in
Massachusetts. The two F-16 Falcons arrived on the scene
fifteen minutes after United's Flight 175 hit the south tower.
And because the south tower fell first and caught everyone by
surprise, it probably killed more people than the collapse of the
north tower. Now, you tell me who is at fault here.
What's more, in 1999 and 2000, the Clinton
administation naturalized 5.6 million resident aliens--1.6 million in
California alone. This was done purely for political reasons.
Under Al Gore's direction, the
INS expedited naturalizations in key
States (Washington, Illinois, Michigan, Florida and California) in
hopes he'd win the 2000 election. A similar phenomenon occurred
just prior to the 1996 elections. Imagine that. But more
importantly, by expediting these naturalizations, the INS bypassed
safeguards that would normally prevent criminals and terrorists to
enter our country. But because of Clinton's selfishness and Gore's
anything to win attitude, America is now flooded with criminals and
terrorists from all parts of the world. Is anyone seeing the big
No, not yet? How about the
Clinton-Gore failed foreign policy.
Before they took office, America was the sole superpower who had just
won the Cold War, and we had the respect of our friends and enemies
alike. But after just eight years of Clinton and Gore, America
now is hated by a good portion of the world, we lost the respect of
our friends and enemies alike, our national security secrets have
been compromised, and we've been attacked by terrorists a half a
world away. And although the attacks took place on Bush's
watch, the attacks were a long time in the making--maybe five or six
years. Bush has been in office for less than nine
months. I want to know "Where the hell was the previous
administation during the other four or five years?" Obviously,
not protecting our country. Still need more?
Well, what about
Clinton and Gore's payoff from the
major air carriers after TWA Flight 800 exploded off the East
Coast. Together TWA, American Airlines, Delta, United and
Northwest gave the Democratic Party over a million dollars for
diluting security procedures that were recommended by a presidential
commission on airline safety. Some of the recommendations
included "baggage matching and enhanced training for airport
screeners." Would the tragic attacks still have occurred if
Clinton would have lived up to his oath to protect America?
There is no way of knowing for sure, but
there are two things that are for certain. One, Clinton had the
IRS turn a blind eye to terrorists
while he had them pursue his personal enemies. I believe the
current administration will discover the money used to finance the
September 11th attacks were collected by terrorists here at home,
while the Clinton administration did nothing to prevent it.
And because of this, Americans unknowingly paid for the distruction of
the World Trade Center.
Clinton refused to take out bin Laden
when he had the chance. In 1996, Clinton passed on Sudan's offer
to turn over bin Laden to the US. The ex-president claims he could
not figure out how to bring the terrorist to justice. This from the
man who questioned the word "is." And in December of 2000, our military knew
exactly where bin Laden was located and they were ready to take him out,
but Clinton declined to give the "green light." I truly believe
the twin towers would still be standing if Clinton would have given
the order, but he didn't. Why? Well, if my premise holds
true, he probably did it for the money. In my view, Clinton and
anyone associated with him, particularly Hillary, is guilty of
causing grave damage to our Republic and each should be held
Generally, liberals implement foolhardy
environmental protection programs blindly without regard to the
consequences. One liberal program could be argued as the
reason for the premature collapse of the World Trade Towers. Each
tower fell two to three hours sooner than originally designed.
Time enough for most if not all to escape. Some reports have
speculated that the
800 to 1100 degree temperatures
generated by the jet fuel caused the premature collapse.
Although the fires did indeed bring down the towers, the fires were
not the cause for the hasty implosion. Herbert Levine, the
inventor of asbestos spray fireproofing, was familiar with the
construction of the twin towers and knew if a large fire occurred
above the sixty-fourth floor,
the towers would come crashing down
long before the designers had planned. Levine predicted
thirty years ago, "If a fire breaks out above the 64th floor, that
building will fall down."
Reason: In 1971, while the towers were being
built, New York City, like many metropolitans, adopted an
environmental policy that banned the use of asbestos in building
construction because of junk-science. It is generally believed
asbestos particles are harmful to human health.
Although this is true for prolonged exposure, at the time the
best technique known to improve heat stress levels on steel
columns envolved using asbestos.
The banned technique sprayed wet asbestos onto steel, and
once the insulation dried, the metal's ability to withstand
high temperatures dramatically improved. Unfortunately, only
the first sixty-four floors of each tower used this technique.
And from what we all witnessed on September 11th, whatever the
builders used as a replacement on the higher floors did nothing
to improve the metal's ability to withstand high temperatures.
In addition, the architect designed the
towers to withstand the crashing force of a Boeing 707. And
even though the Boeing 767s didn't knock over the towers, the
pancake implosion we all witnessed was part of the original design
to eliminate damage to the surrounding buildings if the towers did
come down. This worked exactly as designed, however because
of the ban on asbestos and the fact that the planes hit the towers
above the sixty-fourth floor, the original design that called for at
least four hours of evacuation time, turned into just 56 minutes for
the south tower and just over an hour and a half for the north tower.
It is also apparent the workers in
the towers or the firefighters going to the scene knew of the
danger caused by a fire above the sixty-fourth floor. This in
itself is reprehensible. These people should have known.
They should have been told to get out quickly. Some victims had
no idea of the danger they were in as they told their loved ones
they were safe since the fires were many floors below. I
myself was shocked when the towers came down. I can not begin to
imagine the horror that these people must have gone through as the
towers came down.
Where the construction of the Pentagon
succeeded, the construction of the twin towers failed. Indeed
the renovations on the Pentagon--bulletproof glass and Kevlar
reinforced walls--reduced deaths and injuries, but the environmental
policy that hampered the construction of the twin towers could be
argued as an indirect cause for many, probably thousands of people
losing their lives.
Furthermore, the Left have turned a
blind eye to our nation's security and ignored the will of our
adversaries. I've heard it said, "This is not the time to
point fingers. This is a time when we should pull together."
I agree, but if we are to prevent future attacks on our country, we
must know why they occurred. Also, have you not noticed the
people who are saying "don't point fingers" are the same people who
have weakened America's defense? The
same people who called our
President a coward for not returning to our nation's Capitol when it
was under attack. The
same people who have banned the
flying of our flag. The
same people who fear Americans
may learn they are partially to blame for these attacks. I
truly do not know what sickens me more. What the fanatics have
done to our cities, or what the Left have done to our Republic?
Everything the Left have worked for came
down with the World Trade Center. It is truly unfortunate
thousands have had to lose their lives before we finally realized
what dangers lurk in the real world and what the Left has done to
our beloved Republic. Yet, the tragic attacks
on our nation have revitalized patriotism and the liberal pundits
aren't all too happy. Liberals have revealed their true
colors since the attacks, especially those who have
criticized our President and those who have
banned our nation's symbol--Old
If you have ever wondered why the Right believes the
Left is wrong for our country, just look back to the past eleven
days and you shall see. Evil does indeed beget evil.
And so, we look to our brothers in arms,
for our Republic needs them now more than ever. A long fight
maybe on the rise, but our military must come to her defense and
restore her glory. This war began long before the September
rains, but let the eleveth stand as a reminder to all who wish our
country harm. Our Republic is awake, she is strong, and she
will take no more. God bless our Republic, her people, and
all for which she stands.
