Turning 18 is a milestone.You’re officially an adult, maybe leaving home for the first time, for college or work. You can finally vote, buy a lotto ticket and serve in the military.It’s a time of mixed emotions, made even more so if you’ve never really met the man who helped bring you into the world: the father you lost the day the towers fell. For the widows of 9/11, some of whom were profiled by The Post on the 10th anniversary of the attacks, some had no choice but to put their grief aside in order to raise their families. As for the babies they were expecting and the newborns

During my New Mexico Tech days in the early 1970s, I was friends with a great guy from back east, Vic Saracini. I was studying engineering and Vic was a general studies major. After graduation, I knew that Vic had gone into the Navy and became a fighter jet pilot. I lost track of him after that. Four years ago, I made several contributions to a few scholarship funds administered by the college. Having noticed that there was a scholarship memorial fund in the name of Vic Saracini, I wondered what had happened to Vic and after researching the colleges archives I learned that Vic was employed by United Airlines after he left the Navy. On the morning of September 11, 2001, Captain Vic was piloting United Flight 175 departing Boston Logan International Airport for Los Angeles. After takeoff, the terrorists commandeered the plane and flew it into the south World Trade Center Tower. I didn't know how to express my words to his wife later on.

An Ethics in Media study reveals that a whopping 95 percent of Americans are ” troubled by the current state of media.”You couldn’t get 95 percent of the American people to agree that ice cream and sex are awesome, but 95 percent can come together to recognize just how horrible the media are.But part of me is still wondering what’s wrong with the other five percent.The study was conducted by the public relations firm Bospar and surveyed 1,010 American adults.Specific reasons for why Americans are concerned do vary.

BAYTOWN, Texas-- Twenty-three Greenpeace USA protesters have formed a blockade over the Fred Hartman Bridge in Baytown ahead of the third 2020 Democratic debate, forcing the closure of the Houston Ship Channel and snarling traffic in the area. The Harris County Sheriff's Office began taking protesters into custody Thursday evening. (Tweet/Video) HCSO said in a tweet that they're working with Houston and Baytown fire departments to rappel down and make contact with protesters hanging from the bridge. They say the goal is to bring them to boats they have staged below and take them into custody.

On Thursday, Congressman Brian Mast (R-FL), a double-amputee war vet, spoke with Fox News about being kicked out of a West Palm Beach, Florida, VA facility where he had established the first office in a VA facility for a sitting member of Congress. In 2017, Mast opened the first ever Congressional office inside a VA facility, an action imitated by other congressmen. He had recently confronted VA officials about a shooting and suicide at the West Palm Beach VA. Fox and Friends Co-Host Brian Kilmeade asked, “What’s your reaction to them kicking you out of your office because of that action?”
Another Great Week In Trumpland 4 replies

It was another great week for President Trump. And I guess it’s up to me to spread the word. Why do I need to trumpet Trump? Because the President will never get credit for anything he achieves from the biased-liberal, Trump-hating, mainstream media. First, because of President Trump’s tireless achievements, the generic Democrat/Republican poll is out. Democrats held a 52-43 lead in advance of the 2018 midterms. Today it’s a dead tie. That bodes well for GOP chances to re-take the House in 2020. I guess reparations, open borders, free health care for illegals

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.

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

HOUSTON- Greenpeace activists are suspended from the Fred Hartman Bridge to protest the use of fossil fuels ahead of tonight's Democratic debate in Houston. Twenty-two protesters are on the bridge. Eleven trained climbers are suspended by ropes and harnesses over the Houston Ship Channel. Eleven "anchors" are standing on the bridge itself. Greenpeace USA wrote on Twitter Thursday morning, "BREAKING: We're in Houston shutting down the largest oil export channel in the country to resist Trump & the oil industry for fueling this #ClimateCrisis.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi shut down press questions about whether the House is conducting a formal impeachment inquiry as some lawmakers claim. “I’m not answering any more questions about a possible inquiry, investigation, and the rest,” Pelosi tersely told reporters who asked her about the matter at her weekly press conference. Pelosi’s frustration led her to walk away from the podium, cutting her press conference short after calling for the media to focus on the Senate GOP’s refusal to take up a Democratic proposal to expand background checks for gun purchases.

Elizabeth Warren was in the president’s head. From the summer of 2010 through summer of 2011, the usually unflappable Barack Obama spent long hours agonizing over the then-Harvard Law professor—so much that his aides felt it was distracting from more pressing national concerns, according to interviews with numerous former White House officials. Amid the financial crisis, Warren had become an unlikely star of the left with unambiguous moral outrage and an ability to explain complex financial topics in ways that made them fodder for dinner-table conversation.

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.

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
