NYC Just Did Something Astonishing For One Of America’s Most Infamous Traitors

Ethel Rosenberg was sentenced to death for treason in 1953 by the US, along with her husband, Julius Rosenberg. She was convicted of helping pass atomic secrets to the Soviet Union.

Now, she is being honored by the New York City Council.

Three council members praised Rosenberg, a Lower East Side resident, for “demonstrating great bravery” in her role in a 1935 strike against the National New York Packing and Supply Co. After she joined the workers’ union at that company, she became a supporter of the Communist Party.

The council members also said that she had been “wrongfully” executed by the United States.

Councilman Daniel Dromm, D-Queens, stated: “A lot of hysteria was created around anti-communism and how we had to defend our country, and these two people were traitors and we rushed to judgment and they were executed.”

Soviet spies such as the Rosenbergs were integral to Soviet efforts to build a bomb.

Because of their spying operations in the West, the Soviets knew of the Manhattan Project before even the FBI.

The Soviets ended up detonating their own atomic bomb in 1949, much earlier than expected.

At the peak of their arsenal in the 1980s, the Soviets had approximately 45,000 nuclear weapons in their stockpile.

What New York Liberals Want To Ban Now Could Affect How Millions Get Ready Every Morning

Government regulation has long been a topic of contention among residents of New York City as a succession of leftist leaders has vowed to take away citizens’ freedom of choice in an ostensible effort to save them from their own bad choices.

Among the most notable recent examples of this trend was then-Mayor Michael Bloomberg’s failed effort to ban sugary beverages sold in containers larger than 16 ounces.

One Manhattan council member is doing his best to ban another common product completely within the nation’s most populous city. Democrat Daniel Garodnick recently claimed microbeads – used primarily in hygiene products including toothpaste and skin cleansers – are “toxic” pollutants worthy of absolute prohibition.

“The risks of passing toxic plastic beads up the food chain far outweigh having them in our beauty products,” he explained, citing his belief that humans are becoming sick after eating fish that consumed the tiny exfoliators. Similar efforts to ban microbeads are currently under way within the U.S. and beyond, due in large part to activism by some within the scientific and environmental communities.

What many New Yorkers – and libertarian-leaning Americans across the nation – saw instead of a safety concern was a thinly veiled effort to give government even more control.

Weasel Zippers shared the story with its readers, many of whom found fault with the proposed ban.

“Just setting up a booming black market business,” one critic opined.

A number of readers pointed a finger at the voters who continue to elect such representatives.

“Seems like half of my state is infested with subhuman leftists that fled the mayhem and misery that they created in NY,” one commenter observed. “I wish that they would stay there and reap their rewards.”

‘Clock Boy’ Ahmed Mohamed Just Went To NYC, And Look What Mayor de Blasio Did

Ahmed Mohamed, the Muslim Texas boy who has arguably parlayed his detention for having a clock that looked like a bomb into worldwide celebrity status, was honored as a hero Monday in the city where the Twin Towers once stood.

New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio issued a proclamation marking “Ahmed Day” as the city’s top political leaders fawned over the boy during an appearance at New York’s City Hall.

New York City Public Advocate Letitia James called him a role model and let him sit in her chair in the council chambers.

“Keep doing what you’re doing,” de Blasio himself told the teen.

The elevation of the boy from a student who ran afoul of school rules to supposedly a symbol of the oppressed has not gone over well with some commentators.

“Here’s the message boys and girls, devise a hoax that looks like a bomb, scare the hell out of everyone in school and you too will become lauded and saluted the world over,” wrote Pamela Geller. “Just one thing, you better be a Muslim because if you aren’t, you’ll be expelled and ruined.”

In summarizing the incident, Geller noted that the boy apparently did not build the clock in question, knowingly brought something to school that looked to any observer like a tangle of wires that could be a bomb, refused to cooperate with authorities, and has a school record chock full of disobedience.

“Everyone is very eager to show off how racist they’re not. Don’t let anyone tell you this is all a hoax. Don’t let anyone tell you that you’re a rube and you got played,” wrote blogger Jim Treacher.

“You’re a good person, and you like to read Twitter, and Islamophobia is bad, and Ahmed Mohamed is a downtrodden victim. That’s all you need to know. Anybody who says otherwise is a racist. Them’s the rules,” Treacher wrote.

A Final Cry From 9/11

It’s 9/11, and there will doubtless be plenty of verbiage today regarding the 14th anniversary of something that should have scared America straight – but didn’t.

That morning, a close friend called and woke me out of a really sound sleep. She was hysterical and crying, “America’s under attack! New York is being destroyed!” I spent the first two or three minutes of the conversation assuring her that she was exaggerating things. But she wasn’t.

The first tower had been hit, and I made it to a tv just before the second plane came in. By the end of that day, the two buildings had been destroyed. The Pentagon was really messed up. And a fourth plane that had apparently been headed for DC had gone down in a field in Pennsylvania. Just like my friend, most of the country was in hysterics.

By the end of the day, there remained a smoking ‘ground zero’ and the new, radically remodeled New York City skyline. We were left shocked by the loss of thousands of innocent people in those towers, and the several superhero firefighters, police and city workers who had been faithful unto death. I heard some of the most beautiful and articulately expressed commentaries from all sorts of news people that day. We were, all of us, severely wounded. And we had no clue of the long-range devastation that morning had initiated.

But for me, the two most memorable events of that day, following the vicious felling of those New York buildings: was first, watching the jubilant faces of Muslims, in America and around the world, partying in the streets – celebrating what they believed was the beginning of the destruction of “America the Great Satan!” And, secondly, I vividly remember the news video of a bunch of people standing on the steps of an entrance of the ruined Pentagon. They were all holding hands and tearfully singing “God Bless America.”

Quite honestly, when I saw that tender and heartbroken, impromptu choir of Pentagon personnel singing together, I was deeply touched and somewhat encouraged.

By the next morning, most everyone in front of a camera or microphone was heralding the new catchphrase on so many people’s lips: “NEVER FORGET!” Almost like the “WE CAN DO IT!” spirit that the second world war kindled in America, this unbelievable airstrike on our homeland seemed to be igniting a bold indignation in people of all colors and backgrounds. Suddenly, again, we were at least acting like ‘Americans all.’ I was cautiously optimistic.

But, just as I had feared, it didn’t stick. And we very obviously have forgotten every lesson that day should have taught us.

In hindsight, for much of our relentlessly indulgent, godless and spoiled rotten nation, that momentary burst of prayer, patriotism and resolve ‘9/11’ sparked turned out to be little more than ‘jailhouse religion.’ And when I saw what appeared to be a strong, fresh determination from so many Americans who then seemed adamantly committed to solidarity, I had to ask myself, “how long is this going to last?”

And, today, it only takes a cursory evaluation of current events to answer that question:

Our nation is currently under a different kind of islamic attack, largely invited in by our Allah-loving president. The muslim haters of the ‘Great Satan, America’ are making all sorts of inroads here in our homeland, and insisting – with the full encouragement of certain liberal politicians – that their sharia law be instituted, even taking rein over our established Constitutional law.

Our chief executive (who denies any connection between it and terrorism) spends tens of millions of our yet-to-be-earned dollars on his running entertainment tab. Generally breaking our economy with spending we cannot aford, the goals of Osama bin Laden are being realized. Our efforts at getting to the bottom of Islam’s 9/11-commemorative Benghazi attack has of course taken a backseat to everything from Obama’s campaign fun to his ongoing golf game. America’s racial disharmony is now at an all-time high – again, much thanks to his exacerbation of that delicate problem.

And in declaring that we would ‘NEVER FORGET,’ what exactly were we supposed to remember? Were we only to rehearse and nurture the outrage we had because our enemies had the affront to attack our shores? Were we supposed to remember our unity as Americans (of all colors) who have been forced to deal with the raging racial and class hatred that our president has totally inflamed during his two terms?

I think a MAJOR portion of our ‘remembering 911,’ should be a penitential revival of our commitment to reclaim the good things we’ve abandoned as Americans in the last fourteen years. Why not take Islam-appreciation programs out of our schools? How about insisting that our laws and respect for the right and dignity of women and children be given priority over the evil sharia’s darkness?

While there is still an opportunity, could we rally as Americans in support of the things that have made America strong? In the same spirit as that indignant choir that held hands and sang “God Bless America” on the steps of a shattered America landmark, might we again vow to remain AMERICANS in the face of all that threatens to undue our unique character? Can we all fight to stand apart from and above the wicked culture that insists upon, like a cancer, establishing the laws of its vengeful dark Mohammed?

Can we not do anything, anymore, other than cooperating with the enemy in finding more reasons to HATE America? Through the remembrance of this tragedy and others since, can we begin to revive the failing hearts of those patriots who are yearning to breathe free – before that hope is forever crushed?

In the end, it is a shame that the tragedy of 9/11 only sobered us up for a fleeting moment. As soon as the dust settled and the rubble was cleared away from ground zero, we once again found our remotes, smart phones and game controllers and returned to our contemporary love affair with sloth and ignorance. And instead of electing strong leadership that might help us to remember our vigilance, strengths and precious independence, we now hire only placating babysitters who can ensure that our imagined ‘security’ and pleasures remain seamless.

The real and pricey two hundred-plus year-old investment that had given us our fine life on this continent effectively collapsed in the destruction of that morning. What should have been seen as a final warning to keep us from the total FOOLISHNESS that so many of our countrymen have been promoting over the last decade-and-a-half, turned out to be just a pile of horrific, YouTube video footage and more distraction for armchair conspiracy theorists.

Oh, that we might soon recall and attempt to revive all that we have lost over these years since September 11, 2001! Oh, that we would truly grasp the ominous WISDOM and TRUTH George Washington crystallized in this painfully earned and inspired caution: “Guard against the impostures of pretended patriotism.”

And the warning of a former, wise District Court Justice for New York State, Billings Learned Hand …

Liberty lies in the hearts of men and women, when it dies there, no constitution, no court can save it.

Americans, rise up, NOW, before it is entirely too late.

Remembering The 9-11 Jihad Attack Against America

(Authored by William J. Murray in September of 2002 for the first anniversary of the 9-11 jihad attack on the United States. It is re-posted each year on the anniversary of the attack.)

Each of us will remember exactly where we were and what we were doing at the moment we heard about the Islamic Jihad attack against our nation on September 11th, just as our parents and grandparents always remembered the details of their lives on the day of the attack on Pearl Harbor.

On that fateful day, I was on my way to Washington, DC, to participate in the Sudan Peace Act press conference to be held at the Rayburn House Office Building at 10:00 a.m. that morning.

As usual on my drive from my Virginia office to my Washington, DC, office, I was listening to WTOP, which is a commercial all news radio station. Within two or three minutes of the first plane crashing into the World Trade Center, they had a live report from a traffic helicopter in New York City. Immediately I knew that the Islamic Jihad against the United States had reached a new level of terror.

The media at first believed it was an accident, of course. I knew otherwise just because of the description of the damage. No small aircraft had hit the building, and no large modern airliner would hit a skyscraper in broad daylight in good weather by accident.

I heard the New York traffic reporter as he described a second aircraft headed into tower number two of the World Trade Center, and it was at that instant that I made my first call to the White House. I talked briefly to a special assistant to the President. I wanted to be the first to say, “The Jihad against America has begun.”

It was just after 9:30 when I got off the phone with the White House official and was passing the Pentagon on my way into Washington. It was literally at that instant that American Airlines Flight 77 slammed into the south side of the Pentagon. I never saw the airplane hit, but literally felt the explosion rattle the windows of my Jeep. I can honestly say I did not know what had happened as I saw the smoke and flames rise from the Pentagon in my driver’s side outside mirror. I thought it must have been a truck bomb, since I was not willing to believe that Islamic madmen had managed to hijack more than two jets.

The irony of my personal journey that day was the cancellation of the news conference on the Sudan Peace Act. That act was written for the sole purpose of stopping the slaughter of Christians in the Sudan by its Islamic government. During the Clinton Administration, the Sudanese Muslims had been given a free hand at killing Christians as had the Islamic government of Indonesia. Clinton’s only foreign intervention to “save” a religious group was the bombing of Christian Yugoslavia. The destruction of Yugoslavia by Clinton led to the construction of terror bases in Europe for the first time. Without the Yugoslav army to intervene, terror cells were free to launch attacks against the West from Kosovo.

Within days of the Jihad attack, the Bush Administration was proclaiming Islam as a “religion of peace”; and America’s left wing media launched into a “blame America and defend Islam” politically correct agenda that amazed even me. Not a single news outlet would place the blame for the attack where it belonged … Before the end of September, I had written and placed advertisements in major newspapers including the Washington Times, clearly showing that there was no difference between the Taliban of Afghanistan and our Saudi Arabian “allies.” In fact, the Saudi princes had financed Bin-Laden and his terror cells.

For my truthfulness, I was ostracized in Washington for some time. I was “uninvited” to events, and individuals at the White House no longer returned my calls. But I fought on, not only in print, but on radio and TV as well, telling the truth about Islam and Saudi Arabia. While congressmen and Senators were inviting Islamic clergy to pray at official events, I was pointing out that Bin-Laden was only doing his master’s bidding–and his master was Mohammed.

It took a year, but the truth prevailed! Slowly but surely, newspapers and other media outlets began to listen to me. Former presidential candidate Gary Bauer joined the bandwagon of truth as did Franklin Graham. Soon, even the major media could not ignore the truth. In August of this year, a lawsuit for $1 trillion was filed by terror victims against the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia and many members of the Royal family. Documents filed by the lawyers of the 9-11 victims’ families show clearly that Saudi Arabia gave Osama Bin-Laden and the Taliban $300 million to attack targets other than Saudi Arabia. Further, the Saudis gave Bin-Laden and the Taliban hundreds of millions of dollars of other financial assistance and oil.

Saudi Arabia and its royal families financed the Jihad attack against the United States by paying Osama Bin-Laden not to overthrow their corrupt regime. The tide of truth is rolling over the politically correct. Not even the National Education Association (NEA) can stop the truth. The NEA has presented a “blame America” curriculum to be taught by teachers this September. The NEA suggested that teachers point to the interment of Japanese citizens during World War II and other acts of American “intolerance.” The NEA’s official position is that “…no one group is to blame for 9-11.” The vast majority of America’s teachers have rejected the NEA “guidelines” and will tell the truth about what happened on 9-11 to their students.

There is blame to every evil deed, and there is plenty of blame to go around for what happened on 9-11. We can blame our politically correct leaders for refusing to follow up leads to terrorist activity for fear of being “insensitive” to Muslims. We can blame a press and educational system that equates the vile deeds of Mohammed with the peace of the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

The real blame in America rests in the failure of our civil and religious leaders to understand Islam. Terrible things have been done in the name of Christianity over the years, but we always had the words of Christ to return to. Some good things have been done in the name of Islam over the years, but unfortunately, men such as Osama Bin-Laden can always go back to the words of Mohammed. The first massacre of Jews was conducted by him personally at Medina in the year 627. Yasser Arafat, in sending out his suicide bombers, is faithfully following Islam and the words of Mohammed. Arafat, Bin-Laden and Mohammed are one.

The great “Fatah” (military conquest for Islam) is upon us. It is the fourth great expansion of Islam. If we fail to realize this and do not stop the conquest militarily as was done to end the first three great Fatahs, our children and grandchildren will live as slaves to Mohammed.

What does the next year bring us, the next ten years? More violence against Christians by Islamic governments; more terror attacks in the name of Islamic Jihad; more Jewish and Christian children killed by suicide bombers and even more lies from Islamic leaders.

Muslims have no fear of lying. In the Washington Times, Faiz Rehman of the American Muslim Council had the gall to claim last month that 16% of those killed on 9-11 were Muslims. He claims that 500 of the 3,000 killed were Islamic and that America has a debt to Islam. American newspapers have printed this lie without challenge.
