VIDEO: ‘America Will Always Rise Up, Stand Tall, And Fight Back’ — Trump Pays Tribute To Flight 93 Heroes At 9/11 Memorial

9/11 Anniversary: President Trump attends memorial ceremony in Shanksville, Pa.


President Donald Trump commemorated the 19th anniversary of the September 11 terror attacks by delivering remarks at the United Flight 93 memorial site in Shanksville, Pennsylvania.

Passengers onboard the flight heroically rushed the cockpit and overpowered hijackers on September 11, 2001, forcing the plane to crash in a field in Pennsylvania. The plane was the only hijacked flight not to hit its intended target on 9/11. The president spoke shortly after the names of the 40 individuals on the flight were read aloud, with moments of silence and bells ringing following each name.

“The heroes of Flight 93 are an everlasting reminder that no matter the danger, no matter the threat, no matter the odds, America will always rise up, stand tall and fight back,” Trump stated. “The men and women of flight 93 were mothers and fathers, sons and daughters, husbands and wives. Nothing could have prepared them for the dreadful events of that morning. But when the moment came, when history called, they did not hesitate, they did not waiver.”

“Our sacred task, our righteous duty, and our solemn pledge is to carry forward the noble legacy of the brave souls who gave their lives for us 19 years ago,” he closed. “In their memory, we resolve to stand united as one American nation, to defend our freedoms, to uphold our values, to love our neighbors, to cherish our country, to care for our communities, to honor our heroes, and to never, ever forget.”

WATCH:

The president will follow his remarks with a Medal of Honor ceremony at the White House on Friday afternoon. The recipient, Army Ranger Sgt. Maj. Thomas Payne, is the first person who took part in the United States’ campaign against ISIS, Operation Iraqi Freedom, and the first living member of Delta Force to receive the Medal of Honor.

Former Vice President Joe Biden is also scheduled to visit the memorial site later in the day Friday. He spent the morning at 9/11 memorial services in New York City, also attended by Vice President Mike Pence and New York Governor Andrew Cuomo.

U.S. Muslim Organization admired Bin Laden, conspired to influence Congress, tipped off a terror suspect

Chris Gaubatz delivers jaw dropping details about CAIR operations at Senate Judiciary Hearing.

Senator Ted Cruz presided over a Senate Judiciary hearing Tuesday titled, Willful Blindness: Consequences of Agency Efforts to Deemphasize Radical Islam in Combating Terrorism. The panelists were equally divided, half fit the title, willfully blind, while the other half see clearly that the enemy is Islam.

gaubatzOne of the panelists was Chris Gaubatz, a national security consultant. He has every reason to be awake to the threat of the Islam since he conducted undercover research with HAMAS/Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR) at their Washington, D.C. headquarters as well as in Virginia and Maryland. He worked alongside them as an intern, and was able to keep many physical files that were to be destroyed.

According to Gaubatz, HAMAS/CAIR actually,

“Discussed coordinating with Bin Laden and his associates, placed staffers and interns inside congressional offices, conspired to influence congress, (specifically judiciary, intelligence, and homeland security committees), and worked with a Muslim law enforcement officer to influence a major terrorism investigation by accessing a classified federal police database and tipping off the suspect.”

The panelist also relayed being at a convention of the Islamic Society of North America (ISNA) in which DHS and the FBI had booths set up to recruit members there. Now why would those agencies want to recruit from a group of Muslims most likely to have ties with terrorism? This sounds like another case of willful blindness.

In addition he saw Imam Siraj Wahhaj, a strong advocate for implementing Sharia Law, and also an unindicted co-conspirator of the 1993 World Trade Center Bombing, actually ask for money to support HAMAS.

So much for see something say something. It appears Gaubatz has amazing evidence to support the facts that HAMAS/CAIR who is the Muslim Brotherhood in America, remains alive and well influencing our government and its national security apparatus, and not one of the senators felt the need to ask a follow-up question to his statements.

In stark contrast the opening statement by Senator Coons was equally stunning in a display of simply failing to grasp the truth of the terrorism problem we have here in America, not to mention his misunderstanding of who ISIS is.

Senator Coons stated,

“ISIS is not Islamic. It is a perverted misinterpretation of one of the world’s great religions. No religion condones the massacring of thousands of innocent people,”

It sounds as though Senator Coons may be taking a play out of the Obama playbook as he also expects some mental gymnastics to take place while we are to accept that Islamic State in Iraq and Syria isn’t Islamic. And it doesn’t seem as though the good senator has looked back into the history of Islam. Certainly if he did he would see deaths in the hundreds of millions of people throughout the peaceful Muslim history.

Two more zingers from Coons,

“The country is still trying to make sense of a tragic event in Orlando. 16 days ago a man entered the Pulse nightclub armed with dangerous weapons and massacred 49 innocent people, injuring 50 more leaving our nation and world shaken…I utterly reject the notion that there is some sort of political correctness preventing us from fighting our enemies.”

Senator Coons, if you reject the notion of political correctness then your above statement should read like this,

“16 days ago America experienced yet another Islamic terrorist attack, when an armed Muslim jihadi, swearing allegiance to Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi and the Islamic State, entered the Pulse nightclub and killed 49 innocent people and wounded another 50. In short order, the majority of Americans knew exactly what the motive was as did the whole world, yet the Obama administration, his DHS and FBI are still to this day baffled as to his reasoning. In fact, the denial of what is clear to all with the exception of the “experts” brings shame to the leadership and makes our country even more vulnerable to Islamic attacks.

The hearing was meant to bring light to how our law enforcement agencies continue to down-play Islam’s ideology as the culprit for numerous terrorist attacks because of the political correct approach of Obama’s administration. Part of fixing a problem is identifying it, and the Obama law enforcement agencies miss clues about these Islamic terrorists within our country that would alert them to potential terror threats because the agents are not properly trained as to who the enemy is.

One thing was obvious, the senators in the chamber were given clues over and over by the expert panelists who have 20/20 vision when it comes to understanding and seeing the threat, but until our leaders remove the scales from their eyes they will miss the mark on nailing terrorists in our midst.

Al Qaeda operatives entered U.S. via refugee program

But relax: Obama says the refugees are no more threatening than tourists.

“Report: al Qaeda Terrorists Entered United States Through Refugee Program,” by Ali Meyer, Washington Free Beacon, November 18, 2015:

Two al Qaeda terrorists who had killed American soldiers were able to enter the country as refugees, according to a report released Wednesday from the House Homeland Security committee.

Waad Ramadan Alwan and Mohanad Shareef Hammadi, two Iraqi refugees settled in Bowling Green, Kentucky, after killing American soldiers, whom they bragged about having “for lunch and dinner.” In 2010, they were caught handling weapons, including included a machine gun and a missile launcher, that they planned to smuggle to insurgents in Iraq.

“I wouldn’t be surprised if there were many more than that,” said Rep. Michael McCaul (R., Texas), the chairman of the House Committee on Homeland Security. “And these are trained terrorists in the art of bombmaking that are inside the United States; and quite frankly, from a homeland security perspective, that really concerns me.”

The committee’s report found that the administration’s refugee resettlement program proposal will have “a limited impact on alleviating the overall crisis but could have serious ramifications for U.S. homeland security.”

Jeh Johnson, the secretary of the Department of Homeland Security, admitted in October at a hearing before the Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs committee that organizations such as the Islamic State might attempt to exploit the Syrian refugee resettlement program.

“It is true that we are not going to know a whole lot about the Syrians that come forth in this process,” he said.

President Obama’s refugee resettlement program is now under scrutiny after deadly terrorist attacks in Paris killed more than 120 people and left more than 300 injured on Friday. It is suspected that one of the terrorists entered the country as a refugee.

In addition to these attacks, men in Minnesota were apprehended by the feds for trying to join the Islamic State. There is growing concern that the state would be a recruiting ground for the Islamic State because of its large community of Somali refugees.

The report was released after a nearly year-long investigation evaluating challenges with allowing Syrian refugee flows into the United States.

Governors from many states are now refusing to allow Syrian refugees to resettle in their states.

“Given the tragic attacks in Paris and the threats we have already seen, Texas cannot participate in any program that will result in Syrian refugees—any one of whom could be connected to terrorism—being resettled in Texas,” said Gov. Greg Abbott.

“There is an undeniable connection between our refugee resettlement program and the increased risk of a terror attack within the United States,” said Jessica Vaughan, an immigration expert at the Center for Immigration Studies.

“There have been roughly 70 terrorist plots in the United States since 9/11 and scores of young people who are first or second generation refugees and immigrants who have become involved in some way with Islamist jihadists, either by undertaking attacks here or traveling overseas to join a terrorist group, or both,” she said….
