I remember where I was when the towers fell. I remember how I felt as New York City was turned into a smoke filled war zone. It all came crashing back for me a few days ago on the fifteenth anniversary of 9/11.
My news-feed was full of images and videos showing the destruction in vivid detail. I was actually surprised it hit me so hard.
I watched a powerful video that is simply images of 9/11 set to music that forced me to hold back tears. I sat my children down and made them watch it. My fifteen-year-old son, was only 2 months old the day Islamic terrorists killed more than 3000 Americans. He needs to know about it. He needs to see the images and feel our American pain. My younger two could sense my own anguish as I showed them the horrific images. It was different than a Hollywood movie. It was real. You can watch below:
I actually struggled not to cry as I watched George Bush and his “Bullhorn” speech. 9/11 changed everything for Americans. It certainly did for me. We were awoken from our slumber and rattled the sabers of war in one unified voice. Democrats and Republicans were, for a few months, united against a common American enemy.
Fifteen years later, we are far from unified. We are a nation divided.
President Obama has put forth a foreign policy based on diminishing American power to the point that no one fears us. It is his belief that enemies fearing US power actually are incited by that fear to attack us.
He has bowed to leader-after-leader in his quest that no one fear us and he has succeeded.
He has emptied “Gitmo” and literally paid states like Iran billions in hostage exchanges disguised as reparations. Our military is weakened from budget cuts and humiliating rule changes. Our resolve to face a real enemy is even weaker. Hillary Clinton has done her part in Benghazi, making deals with darkness and then leaving our people to die. (Of course, it was a video)
We are a nation primed for attack. What would stop our enemies from attacking us again here at home? There is little fear of retribution. Of course, the attack would have to be even bigger than 9/11. The Jihad of our enemy doesn’t end with a presidential term. They are still at war with us.
President Obama is in his last days, playing golf till the bitter end. What is on the horizon for America?
Would a President Hillary strike fear into our enemies? No. She’s more likely to invite them to a dinner and take a donation for the Clinton Foundation in exchange for looking the other way. She’s proven she is not squeamish to take blood money. In other words, she plays ball, even with our enemies.
On the other hand, what would the world think about a President Trump?
You can almost smell the fear! Our enemies would be stark, raving, scared out of their minds of a President Trump.
Who knows what he would do?
He’s not easy to figure out, brash, bold, and maybe even reckless. It has also been rumored that America’s Mayor, Rudy Giuliani could be tapped to head Homeland Security for a Trump Presidency. Those two New Yorkers in charge of America’s security would be the New Twin Towers of American power.
The sight of Trump and Giuliani as a team would send ISIS hiding into the caves and rocks of the middle east.
People from New York saw first-hand what happens when terrorists come to America. They know people who died. They smelled the smoke and saw the blood. Two brave New York sons at the helm of American power is a nightmare for our enemies.
This week Giuliani made it perfectly clear how he felt about war on our enemies. He was on the ABC show, “This Week”, with Clinton friend, George Stephanopoulos.
The two got into a disagreement about whether or not oil should have been taken from Iraq to pay for the war in a “spoils of war” policy Trump has mentioned several times.
“That’s not legal, is it?” ABC’s George Stephanopoulos asked, as the Geneva Conventions forbid seizing the natural resources of a sovereign nation after invading it.
“Of course it’s legal. It’s a war,” Giuliani said, laughing. “Until the war is over, anything’s legal.”
Watch the segment here:
Whether or not it is legal to take the spoils of war is not my concern. The message that Giuliani sent to our enemies is loud and clear.
A Trump presidency will have our enemies afraid for the first time since Bush left office.
War is messy and horrible. Giuliani and Trump understand that and embrace whatever means necessary to attain American victory.
As 9/11 reverberates in our hearts, Trump and Giuliani step forward as perhaps the only ones on the political scene to strike fear into the hearts of our enemies. Those enemies are on the march with their sights set firmly on bringing America to her knees.
Love ‘em or hate ‘em, a pair of guys like Trump and Giuliani might be just what it takes to dish up a little New York attitude when it comes to facing our enemies.
