Ten flights of stairs would leave many people breathless, but at least 1,000 brave souls climbed the 104 floors of One World Trade Center Sunday to raise money for first responders in need. The event was organized by the Tunnel to Towers Foundation, which was founded after the airplane attack by Islamic terrorists on the World Trade Center on 9/11 2001 that took over 3,000 lives and led to the iconic Big Apple’s buildings collapsing.Mixed martial arts star Conor McGregor, who earlier this month pledged to donate $1 million to the foundation, applauded their efforts:

That's a heck of a lot of steps. I can't imaging doing that. The most steps I have ever been up was the Washington monument, which is probably about half that much. I'm impressed. My brother and I, when I was about 16 ran up the Washington monument steps all the way. It is 555 feet high, IIRC, and by the time we go to the very small, tight top chamber we were gasping for breath (well, duh!). The only fresh air in that small crowded room is a small screened opening about 4 by 12 inches under each of the four windows. We crowded up to breathe fresh air for a few minutes after that. They don't even permit people to walk up the steps any more, apparently there was vandalism and crime going on in the stairwell and too few Park Rangers to man the entire stairwell. The DC criminal class ruins everything.

As far as I know from the various charity watchdog groups, T2T doesn't waste much money on admin costs. However, all their commercials of late featuring some Hollywood celebrity kind of leaves a bad taste in my mouth. I don't need some actor like Cole Hauser telling me to support severely disabled combat veterans. Who I think should be the priority as every serviceperson can sign up for $400,000 in life insurance if killed while on active duty so that the spouse and dependents have some financial support. The VA doesn't build homes for the disabled, especially the severely disabled. The Gary Sinise Foundation seems to have a more low key approach.

This is such a wonderful organization with very low administrative costs. Siller and his family are the real deal. Every time I contribute to T2T or see one of their commercials I am struck at how little we think about God's plans for each one of us. Siller's younger brother died in the 9/11 World Trade Center attack and what huge loss it was to that family as well as the FDNY and NYC. But, from his tragic death, thousands of lives have been saved, and families' circumstances throughout the country have been altered immeasurably for the good, by the T2T organization. As Stephen Siller jogged through the Brooklyn Battery Tunnel on 9/11 toward his death, undoubtedly his intent was to save lives. But, he could never have imagined how many lives his untimely death would save. God bless him and his family for ever.

Tunnels to Towers is a great venture but the government should be funding this with taxpayers money. Instead the government pays for LGBT+ parties.

ClAIM: President Joe Biden has “never once … suggested to the Justice Department what they should do.” VERDICT: FALSE. He said people who defied the January 6 Committee’s subpoenas should be prosecuted. President Biden responded to a shouted question on Thursday from a left-wing journalist who asked him why Americans should trust the Department of Justice — not because it may be prosecuting his political opponent, for the first time in American history, but because that opponent had the temerity to criticize it for doing so. In his reply, Biden claimed that he had never told the department to charge, or not to charge, any individual:

ANKENY, Iowa— Former Vice President Mike Pence opened his bid for the Republican nomination for president Wednesday with a firm denunciation of former President Donald Trump, accusing his two-time running mate of abandoning conservative principles and being guilty of dereliction of duty on Jan. 6, 2021. Pence, launching his campaign in a suburb of Des Moines, became the first vice president in modern history to challenge the president under whom he served. He said Trump had disqualified himself when he insisted that Pence had the power to keep him in office — even though he did not. Trump, he said, “endangered my family and everyone at the Capitol”

When Trump burst on the political scene, his smashmouth style was, shall we say, off-putting. Dan Bongino, also from Queens, told us this was just the normal style of speech in that area. And many of us voted for the Donald, knowing that the alternative was simply intolerable. We weren’t sure what he would do, but his opponent was guaranteed to do bad things. For four years, in the face of relentless false attacks, Donald Trump got things done. Lots of things. But he didn’t drain the swamp.
