... and you should too.

Biden, of course, will make the obligatory speech.

The terrorists killed some 3,000 Americans, all of whom died because the FBI was not just incompetent, they were willfully blind.

Do recall that all of the below happened:

  • Bush governor in Florida gave a bunch of non-citizens driver licenses, with which they bought tickets and boarded the planes.  This was wildly improper since exactly zero said non-citizens and non-permanent residents had a permanent, legal Florida address yet exactly nobody was ever punished, that is, fired or prosecuted, for doing it.

  • The FBI ignored a call from the flight school where the terrorists were "learning" to operate said plane; the owner of same was ex military and called the FBI because said "students" had no interest in landing.  He was blown off despite being a military veteran with first-hand knowledge of extraordinarily unusual and suspicious activity.  Not one person in the federal government (including the FBI) was fired or prosecuted for their outrageously gross negligence which in fact was directly responsible for 3,000+ dead Americans.

  • Not one prohibited item got on board that morning yet millions of Americans are sexually assaulted every year since and, when the TSA is challenged by "tests" to see if they can actually find and stop bombs or guns they fail a disgusting part of the time.  Not once when they have failed said tests, which can only reasonably occur if you're not actually looking at the display, have the agent(s) involved been charged criminally for their clear criminal malfeasance or even fired.

  • Whether the private security and airlines who hired them were culpable has never been tested in court because the US Government protected that incompetence, both on the ground and in the aircraft itself.  We allegedly have courts for this exact purpose; to test said claims openly and assign liability.  In other words we no longer have a rule of law you can rely on.

  • It was clear within hours the hijackers were all, or nearly all, Saudi nationals.  Bush let many more Saudi nationals, some of whom might have been personally involved, leave the nation via private jet while the rest of us had our air travel suspended.  That is, our government deliberately allowed people who likely could have been tried and imprisoned for this or even sentenced to death to go free.  Fuck every single element of our government who did that, including the office of the President, the FBI and more.

Is 9/11 a day of somber remembrance?  You bet it is.

It's one of the key bright-line test days in which it was proved our government no longer functions except as a grift, fraud and death-dealing machine that can and will be turned on anyone, including our own citizens, whenever some rich jackass demands it.  Oh by the way, there are more than a few Americans dead this last time from combat with a virus for the exact same reasonso cry me a fucking river given that even after some nutjobs flew planes into buildings the American people refused to wake the fuck up.

PS: Before commenting make damn sure you read the FAQ.  This post does not suspend the rules around here and I suspect I will obtain a nice upper-body workout at least once today...

And the United States bombed Afghanistan, stayed 20 years, was run out by a ragtag army with rifles, and left behind billions in military hardware. The US spilled the blood of its own army and the blood of innocent civilians in the way of our bombings, and spent over $1T. Soon thereafter the US entered a proxy war with Russia. Has anyone had enough?

Not one person can argue against anything written here. What a long strange trip its been the last 21 years. Grift, fraud, and death dealing machine. The harsh reality that cannot be denied. Yet many of us do. Or at least try to. Wishing you all well. Cheers.

I wasnt a big fan of .gov BEFORE 9/11, but the facts KD laid out in this post were the seeds that planted and grew into outright contempt for them. I knew the rot and incompetence were in there, this event just allowed me to see it in a clearly IN YOUR FACE manner. And I have not looked back, as once you see the illusion of .gov exposed, you cannot unsee it. And it has only gotten worse and worse. Great post KD. Thank you.

Our friend was on the trial for his life in the aftermath. Why? Because The NY FD failed to do an inspection and then they claimed sovereign immunity, so they had to find someone to blame.

Thankfully he was acquitted. Government incompetence continued well after 9/11:

Has the FIB actually ever achieved anything useful in law enforcement? Most of their "headline" stuff is merely propaganda, or flat out lies (Whitmer "kidnapping", anyone?), not to mention the "rogue agents" like Paul ("What do you want, tears?") Rico and John Connelly.

Just as an example, here's some premier cru FIB history: "The incident is infamous in FBI history and is well-studied in law enforcement circles. Despite outnumbering the suspects 4 to 1, the agents found themselves pinned down by suppressive rifle fire and unable to respond effectively."

As this is the subject which is most likely to cause trouble I hesitate to post...

But, regardless of a person's belief about the fall of the Twin Towers, there is plenty of inconsistencies to make a thinking person look twice at this event.

I'll admit that I think the whole event is, well, let's just say I haven't been surprised by the official covid response due to the way 9/11 was handled.

What really pissed me off post 9/11 was the way people bellowed for war.

Too many Americans were excited to start a holy war against Muslims who got blamed as a group for the actions of a few.

And the war we began against Iraq was to do what? How was Saddam responsible for 9/11?

Why did Bush an Co let Saudis and Israelis fly home, but my folks who had went to Alaska to see my brother stationed there had to wait two weeks to get home?

The Twin Towers were still smoldering as 100 different theories began circulating thru the tin bins. Everyone has their favorite hypothesis which they cling to like a dead religion.

People are so focused on their preferred conspiracy, they will fight to prove they're right rather than seek common ground.

If you haven't read any conspiracy sites regarding 9/11 - they're basically long threads of people throwing out crazy ideas and then flaming each other for not believing in their particular 9/11 religious conviction.

Meanwhile, the events Karl talks about in this article are ignored. Yet, these things can be proven, so why doesn't anyone press forward to get this information out?

A mental exercise you should do is ask if you believed the government responded properly to 9/11? Did you buy thier lies and giddily start pounding on the drums of war? Were you so excited to kick Muslim ass you didn't care who we went to war with, so long as they were brown and Muslim?

And now that you've been fucked by the viral war on covid, are you having second thoughts about your willingness to believe the 9/11 lies?

Every time we give government power, they use that power to consolidate even more power. We gladly wear the shackles provided because we're told these will make us safe. Heck, we help the bastards put the shackles on our wrist while yelling at anyone who refuses because they ain't real patriots.

Hmmm, this post has reminded me that I hate people. I wonder why?

The problem is most people want to point a finger rather than their thumb when dealing with challenges.

99% of Americans don't know any of this.

Hell, even the conspiracy theorists will focus on anything else except the simple failures of people to just do their damn jobs. What seems more likely? Jewish Space Lasers, or a lazy FBI? Guess which of those sees more traction online in regards to 9/11?

Even if you could download this shit to people's heads, it would be waved off as "nothing could be done, no one's fault", at the direction of our state media.

There is no hope for most people. I can't help but have contempt.

I don't see how anyone can disagree with this Ticker, except for maybe the FBI trying to cover their asses. They also repeated this game plan with the Boston Marathon bombers. They were warned several times by the Russians that the bombers were terrorists and chose to ignore it...

Thank you again TG!
At this stage of "things", post Covid-19 hysteria, and "experimental vaccines" that "don't prevent infection" from the thing that they were "supposed to do",
the only solution I can think would work is to "defund all these agencies and others that are "feed stock" for policies that are against US Citiczens.

Can it happen? Maybe, but it would require "a wholesale STRIKE" whereby the citiczens "demand full accountability". Trains stop running, pilots don't show up to work, tradesmen decide it's time for a sabbatical, truck drivers "go fishing". Perhaps, the "strike" would not even require more than 2 or 3 weeks where "things just stop"? This is the only "non violent way" I could immagine would work.

All the boosted mice in the new bivalent vax test got Covid when challenged.

At least we got that going for us. And let's not overlook the $175 million the Biden administration is spending to buy the stuff. No need to testing the concoction in human subjects right?

As for the complete Clown World performances by all levels of government over the past 25 years, it's what they do best. They all excel at being grossly incompetent. In every realm of activity in which they engage.

I hereby dedicate this to TG, a fellow Phil Collins/Genesis fan. I was a first year teacher back on 9/11, out on the playground with the kids. We had just completed our countywide assessment when I came back into the school.

"Did you hear? A plane just flew into the World Trade Center! By the way, don't tell the kids!"

I did anyway. On went the television set. Saw the horror unfold in real time.

They actually had me, up to and until I saw GB II crawl up the pile of debris in Manhattan and told us all to.....go shopping.

Yeah. I actually was searching for the WW2 movie, "Mrs. Miniver" with Greer Garson and Walter Pigeon. Blockbuster didn't have it.

It's all been a pack of lies. My own little wake up call. It eventually brought me here, so there's that anyway.



Don't f*ck with me fellas! This ain't my first time at the rodeo.

America-it was a good run while it lasted. RIP!

So at the end, what does all the control in the world get you since control only gets you is death. I never understood the motivation for total control when if you look at nature and human existence it is the minimization (not abandonment) of control that we cherish, and that leads to life.

One can simply conclude that WEF, pandemic, 911, and global warming are directed at producing an Moloch, Aztec or Easter Island like death cult.

Who, what, when, where, and why. We are seeing the how.

We are in a bicycle economy. The only way to stay solvent is to keep trading, or tip over.

Well said Karl.

The difference with 9/11 is that some woke up, served, and answered the bell. They are part of the blood and treasure squandered by our government over the last 21 years. With the virus we essentially are numbed, asleep .... indifferent.

With the border wide open, the Government even more corrupt and an indifferent population (I use indifferent because I can't think of a better term right now), the seeds for an even larger terror event have been sown.

He was going to save the world.

Seems like yesterday. My nephew joined the marines, along with his long time high school friend. He served two tours in Iraq, the first was a city, Hit, (pronounced "Heet"), first day boots on the ground foot patrol, his buddy was shot in the head by a sniper.

He spent the next several months in a hospital in Kuwait, beside his buddy, until he passed, then back to Hit. They had no running water, no electricity, no way to shower, or clean clothes.

I sent many care packages, sent them out weekly, with underwear, socks t-shirts, gum, candy, (barter material), snacks etc. Not knowing if any would reach it's destination, hoping a few would. I was able to speak to him two times during his eight month tour, by satellite phone, he was limited to just a few minutes, so many marines, taking turns to speak to loved ones.

He came back state side to Twenty Nine Palms, to go through, a mental detox, that lasted two weeks. He wanted to see me and spend some time together, (he and his father/mother did not get along), his CO called me, ahead of his arrival briefed me on some of what he had been through, and what to expect, he let me know to call him immediately, if I noticed anything, "off" about him.

I changed his diapers when he was a baby, spent hours talking to him, as he was growing up, about his dreams, and goals.

His second tour was spent kicking in doors, looking for the "bad guy", door to door, they would kick in doors, (he was the lead carrying a M249 SAW), only to discover a room full of Iraq women saying no Alibaba, (no bad guys). At some point he kicked a door in, and it was a room full of men with AK's he had run out of ammo, killed the last one with the butt of his gun.

He called me at his first opportunity using "Skype", he was sobbing telling me his boots were full of blood, that was not his. They moved him to to patrol, riding on top of a APV manning a 50 cal. His last week in theatre he was escorting a group of Navy seals, they came under heavy rocket fire in a round about, he was blown out of the turret, everyone was killed with the exception of him, and the driver.

The young man, (his name is Braxton), will never be the same, he is considered permanently disabled.

He grew up under the shadow of 911, his goal was to save the world, and rid the earth from terrorist. He had a rude awakening!

It wasn't just "that day 9/11, it was the weeks/months, and years that left a trail of death, and destruction. He has a different perspective than most regarding how he sees, the United States of America, and he's not wrong.

I wish I could replace his memories. He will forever be haunted by that day!

I watch the "Hannibal" DVD last night. This is the Ridley Scott contribution to the Hannibal Lector sequence. It was filmed during summer of 2000 and was released in spring of 2001. I believe the depiction of the FBI and DOJ officials being back stabbing go with the flow types more interested in career advancement than anything else is an accurate depiction of the bureau at the time, as well as government agencies of all kinds. Clarice Starling, in trying to do the right thing, is eventually suspended from you job due to this stuff. Contrast this depiction to the "Silence of the Lambs" movie ten years earlier which depicted the FBI as caring competent professionals.

We know the medical establishment has been rotten since the early 80's. But I think most of our public institutions worked generally as advertised until the mid 90's. At least with Federal agencies, I think the rot started with the Clinton administration.

Things have degenerated continuously over the 20+ years since the "Hannibal" movie came out and 9/11.

It's all in the mitochondria.

Greeacr, It would just break my heart if that bigger event happens in DC when there's some funeral where the maximum number of shitheads are there including GWBdog and Dickhead Cheney and others that were responsible for the war crimes in Iraq. I never trusted anything coming from the totally incompetent and corrupt .gov but, 9-11 and that war were the reasons my distrust went into overdrive and I didn't trust anything ever again from the Feral Gov., including the fake vaccines. (along with the commentary by our kind host of course). This clip of Bushdog laughing about WMD with the equally disgusting press rat scum is all you need to know how fucked these people are:
