On 9-11: Remembering America's exceptional heroes here and abroad

Original Article

The term American “exceptionalism” has become a part of our political discourse in recent years. Some in the political arena, such as President Barack Obama, have been accused by their critics of not believing in American exceptionalism. But American Exceptionalism is found in the war dead’s cemeteries not only in America, but also where American’s go to protect freedom including Normandy and the Sicily Rome American Cemetery. What this “exceptionalism” involves remains undefined, although those who wield the term as a weapon may be surprised to learn what its essence really involves.

Clueless Democrats continue the fight for power in America 1 reply
Posted by BigAlPeoplesPal 9/12/2019 5:40:42 PM Post Reply
Clueless Democrats came back from the 2016 August recess not with new ideas culled from Town Halls and Farmer’s Market, as is intended. Instead, many, not all, came back looking to fundamentally change America. Unfortunately for America, the desire for change starts with impeaching Donald Trump and ends with a socialist government that will have the government deciding your life. Looking at the Democrat agenda, it is all about regaining power and moving America toward a socialist government as a first step to creating a global economy run by George Soros, Hillary Clinton, and Barack Obama.
Fake news CNN introduces a Kremlin "asset". Is it Clinton, Obama or both? 3 replies

Reported as yet another bombshell, CNN claims a Kremlin spy working for America was extracted from Russia because President Trump’s mishandling of classified information threatened to expose the Kremlin infiltrator, endangering his life.There is just one problem with the story. It contains one glaring lie. According to the New York Times: “Former intelligence officials said there was no public evidence that Mr. Trump directly endangered the source, and other current American officials insisted that media scrutiny of the agency’s sources alone was the impetus for the extraction.”

Impeaching Trump: Democrats are the President's re-election secret 6 replies

House Democrats are working hard to assure Donald Trump handily wins a second term as the nation’s 45th president. It appears the House will shortly pass a resolution allowing the body’s Democratic majority to form subcommittees in an effort to collect “evidence” of the president’s “high crimes and misdemeanors.” Democrat’s goal of impeaching Trump may be the secret weapon to ensure his re-election as #46. Democratic House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerry Nadler says these committees will “help ensure our impeachment hearings are informative to Congress and the public while providing the President with the ability to respond to evidence presented against him.”

When New York City’s Twin Towers were attacked on September 11, 2001, America was forever transformed, and Patriot Day became a day of remembrance. Americans across the country tragically lost their unshakable belief that acts of foreign war and terror could not occur on American soil. As approximately 3,000 Americans died, while visions of burning buildings and people jumping to their deaths proliferated on the TV news, the country came together. for a brief moment in time in a unified voice screaming in disbelief, shock, mourning, outrage and resolve to move forward together.

A New York Times (NYT) reports that President Trump’s tax cuts once again benefited his wealthy friends and not average Americans. (“How a Trump tax break to help poor communities became a windfall for the rich”) It appears that the NYT doesn’t fully understand how business, economics and public policy work together. And this lack of economic literacy produces more fake news. As part of the tax cut that Congress passed in 2017, special tax treatment was given to certain sections of the country. These sections were mostly inner-city, low-income areas that really needed redevelopment.

With Congress returning this week, the 2020 election, and impeachment quest ramps up. Numerous pundits and opinion writers have predicted that Hillary Clinton will be Democrat savior. Including the artist, Ben Garrison, behind the lead cartoon. Is Hillary the one that, this time, will beat Donald Trump? Can the mistress of the Deep State deny him of his second term? Will Hungarian Billionaire and Deep State God Father, George Soros be willing to support another Clinton – Deep State run? Because out of all the DNC contenders, Hillary Clinton alone reigns as the Queen of the Deep State globalist agenda.

Chicken Little Democratic Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez says we Earthlings have a mere twelve years before man-made climate change renders us extinct. But former Vice President Eye-Popping Joe Biden has done her one better. The front runner for the Democratic Party’s nomination for president told Americans we have a little more than a year before the curtain falls on humankind. According to Biden, Hurricane Dorian, which devastated the Bahamas last Tuesday, proves climate change is… “…an existential threat… this guy [President Donald Trump] can no longer deny the science… we can’t wait another 18 months for something to happen in terms of climate."

Latin is a difficult language to master, and not one that universities like to have in their curricula. Compared to Russian and Japanese, for instance, Latin is relatively easy. The problem is that with Latin, things can go very wrong. To wit, Harry Potter uses it to summon, and banish, the evils of his make-believe world. Every year, the same scene plays out in Latin classes across the country. Students pour over their texts, attempting to conjugate a verb or to master an oration of Cicero. Then one of them makes a minor error and summons a major demon.
The legacy of Ato Wandaro, Ethiopia's protestant apostle, lives on in Soddo 4 replies

In 1971 a young Bible teacher and his family began a ministry in Soddo, Wallamo, (now Wolaitta) Ethiopia. The province supported the largest group of protestant Christians in Ethiopia—a worldwide phenomenon. The local SIM Bible school taught grades 1-4 with an advance division for post-elementary 6th-grade students. All classes were taught in the national language, Amharic. In addition, Ethiopians from our Bible school system taught in 13 district Bible schools. The schools were at a very basic level taught in the local tribal language which meant the teachers learned in Amharic but taught in tribal languages.

Ilhan Omar: Hating America, flouting our laws, breaking up marriages 16 replies

At what point is enough already enough? Where do we draw the line on our politicians’ personal behavior? Was it the affair between Monica Lewinsky and Bill Clinton? Or the actions of Minnesota Senator Al Franken, for which he lost his seat? Or will it be the alleged marriage wrecker and serial bride, Minnesota Socialist-Democratic representative Ilhan Omar? Wherever we draw the line, it needs to be drawn. Senator Al Franken, a comedian turned politician, takes a crazy picture, that has the #MeToo movement demanding his head, or seat. And now we have Ilhan Ohmar who glibly dances across America’s political landscape, destroying 243 years plus of American exceptionalism.

Early Monday morning, Donald Trump tweeted: “94% Approval Rating in the Republican Party, a record. Thank you!” Where the president got this specific number remains a mystery. Recent polls by YouGov put his GOP approval roughly ten points lower, and Gallup, which has tracked Trump’s popularity since he took office, puts him at 88 percent. But I suppose we shouldn’t be surprised that Trump used his Sharpie to round up his score. He’s deeply invested in being — or at least claiming to be — the most popular Republican president in history.

The far-left members of the “Squad” – Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY), Ilhan Omar (D-MN), Rashida Tlaib (D-MI), and Ayanna Pressley (D-MA) – participated in an NAACP forum Wednesday evening and declared that members of the Republican Party are “scared” of them “because they know how powerful” they are. Ocasio-Cortez talked about her background as a waitress and told the moderator, Angela Rye, that she does not “shy away” from her background of working in restaurants because it prepared her for her current job as a congresswoman. “Nothing will give you the ferocity of advocacy like having that kind of experience,” Ocasio-Cortez said.

Every year, thousands of Shia worshippers take part in the ceremonies, performed to mourn the death of Husayn ibn Ali, a grandson of the Prophet Muhammad. The commemorations take place on Ashura, the tenth day of the first month of the Islamic calendar. They mark Husayn's death at the Battle of Karbala, fought between Husayn and Yazid I on October 10 680AD to determine who should succeed the prophet as the leader of Islam.

This is the time for President Trump to deprive his enemies of the last weapon that could be employed against him that could cause him any harm: the largely false, but still troublesome, issue of his personality and routine behavior. Other lines of attack have come to naught: Collusion with Russia, accusations of racism provoking outbursts of mass murder (by uttering “racially charged statements,” in the inadvertently Orwellian words of CNN’s most witless talking head, Don Lemon), the verbal recession confected by the world-renowned economists of CNN and MSNBC, all of it has collapsed. Illegal border crossings are in sharp decline as the wall is steadily extended,

City contractors would have to reveal past ties to slavery under a Council bill that will be introduced on Thursday. The legislation would require companies to search their history and records to determine if they or any affiliated entities engaged in or profited from the slave trade when they enter in or renew city contracts of $100,000 or more. “New York City is the financial capital of the world, and the ugly truth is that its stature as such has roots in the slave trade,” Councilman I.

Mayor Pete Buttigieg ought to crack open the Bible, turn to Psalm 139, and read how God formed humans “fearfully and wonderfully” — and after, take a second look at his views on abortion and repent, said his brother-in-law, Rhyan Glezman, an evangelical pastor from Michigan, on Fox News. Good advice. It is a curiosity how a self-declaring Christian can still stand strong on the side of abortion rights. This is what Buttigieg said a few days ago on a “Breakfast Club” radio interview: “Right now, [conservatives] hold everybody in line with this one piece of doctrine about abortion, which is obviously a tough issue

Crooked Hillary mocked the US from abroad then taunted House Republicans over her email scandal. Hillary Clinton visited an art exhibit in Venice, Italy this week which displayed 60,000 pages of her ’emails’ she sent over her private server. The artist, Kenneth Goldsmith, printed up 60,000 pages of Hillary Clinton’s emails that somehow managed to survive her BleachBit spree and called the exhibit, “HILLARY: The Hillary Clinton Emails.” According to The Hill, Hillary spent nearly an hour rifling through her emails at the exhibit, then posed for a picture.This wasn’t enough for Hillary — she

In honor of the 18th anniversary of the Sept. 11 terror attacks, on Wednesday President Donald Trump and first lady Melania Trump both posted tweets that pictured them standing on a balcony underneath or above the words “We Will Never Forget.”While conservatives appeared to respond to the posts by issuing their own Sept. 11 tributes and thanking the president for his efforts to protect America from further terror attacks, many on the left reacted to it with scorn, derision, and highly disturbing conspiracy theories.

Although the Democrats were heavily focused on winning in North Carolina's 3rd and 9th Congressional Districts and they outspent the GOP heavily, Republicans Dan Bishop and Greg Murphy came out victorious on Tuesday night. But how did they win when the odds were stacked against them, at least on the monetary front? According to Republican National Committee Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel, President Donald Trump rallied voters and helped push the candidates over the finish line. In particular, Trump's last minute stump on Monday night gave Bishop a last minute boost,

AUSTIN— Twenty-two Greenpeace USA activists created a blockade on the Fred Hartman Bridge in Baytown, Texas early Thursday ahead of the third Democratic primary debate in Houston. Eleven of those climbers are dangling over the side of the bridge, an activist said in a Facebook Live video. The climbers held colorful ribbons and streamers to block traffic under the bridge. The group aims to “shut down the largest oil export channel in the U.S.” for 24 hours. Law enforcement officials told the local NBC affiliate that Houston Ship Channel was temporarily closed down because the protesters threatened to lower themselves to stop ship traffic.
