Over the years, September 11 has become a solemn day for most Americans. There will be many observances tomorrow. There have already been some observances, yesterday, Friday, as 9/11 falls on a Sunday this year. At Congress for example. When many people assemble to publicly share their grief. To participate in rituals like ringing sad sounding bells and reading names of the fallen. Many of whom lived in NYC. Or NJ, as I do. I personally have not participated in any of these. I live in NJ but am not a First Responder or terrorist victim or family or friend or work associate or neighbor etc. I was not anywhere near NYC or NJ or PA or Washington, DC or Boston etc. on 9/11. Nevertheless I, too, was hurt that terrible day.
I was actually on the Wild and Scenic North Fork of the American River in California sluicing for gold with a friend, an older man, an Air Force veteran of the Vietnam war. I knew we were probably not going to find much gold doing that, but he asked me to go with him so I did. Towards the late afternoon he commented on not seeing any airplanes all day. I said something like yeah, now that you mention it neither have I. Strange. We may very well have been among the last people to find out about 9/11. That was when we returned to his house that evening about 12 hours into it. We saw the TV news. I was shocked, horrified, amazed at the First Responders. But also I was furious. At the absolute treachery of whoever did this.
So, as I said, over the years I haven’t attended these observances. For one thing, I didn’t want to intrude on the quiet solemnity by yelling loudly, who in Hell did this? I don’t believe it was a bunch of ragged barbaric religious zealots living in caves in Afghanistan! Where is the justice? Nobody has been brought to trial. Even OBL Osama bin Laden was not brought to trial but rather assassinated by U.S. Special Forces while on live video feed to the White House. So there was never a trial or his testimony. Kind of like Lee Harvey Oswald. OBL should not have been killed but rather captured as a material witness in the least. Who would want to kill a material witness? Why kill him and make him a martyr?
Over the years I have come to the conclusion that 9/11 was done by the international U.S. Department of Homeland Security/FBI collusion with Israel. Israel is about to get a huge military aid package. President Obama is reported to get a huge golden parachute with a book deal worth about $45 million. He is abroad and returning to the U.S. soon. Congress has come back from vacation for about 2 weeks then leaving for political campaigning for the November elections. The elections have been rigged as usual by the Democrats and Republicans which support Israel lavishly.
So, what a timely, somewhat perfect storm. Let the real Americans share their collective memory and grief about 9/11. Then Marines surround the DHS/FBI buildings and The Capitol and The White House and call the First Responders to arrest everyone inside on state RICO corrupt organization charges. Then let due process let the chips fall where they may, like the Twin Towers did. If that goes to Congress and the White House, so be it.
What goes around comes around. Payback is a bitch.
