THIS IS HARDLY A POSITIVE SIGN …
A new Pew Research Center analysis shows that for the first time in more than 130 years, adults ages 18 to 34 were living with their parents rather than with a spouse, partner, roomie or on their own. In 2014, about 32.1% of 18- to 34-year-olds lived with their parents and only 31.6% lived with a significant other, down about 30 points from 1960. It appears to not just be an American thing, its happening abroad as well.
Broad demographic shifts in marital status, educational attainment and employment have transformed the way young adults in the U.S. are living, and a new Pew Research Center analysis of census data highlights the implications of these changes for the most basic element of their lives – where they call home. In 2014, for the first time in more than 130 years, adults ages 18 to 34 were slightly more likely to be living in their parents’ home than they were to be living with a spouse or partner in their own household. 1
This turn of events is fueled primarily by the dramatic drop in the share of young Americans who are choosing to settle down romantically before age 35. Dating back to 1880, the most common living arrangement among young adults has been living with a romantic partner, whether a spouse or a significant other. This type of arrangement peaked around 1960, when 62% of the nation’s 18- to 34-year-olds were living with a spouse or partner in their own household, and only one-in-five were living with their parents. 2
By 2014, 31.6% of young adults were living with a spouse or partner in their own household, below the share living in the home of their parent(s) (32.1%). Some 14% of young adults were heading up a household in which they lived alone, were a single parent or lived with one or more roommates. The remaining 22% lived in the home of another family member (such as a grandparent, in-law or sibling), a non-relative, or in group quarters (college dormitories fall into this category)
Four Americans Confirmed Killed in Brussels Terrorist Attacks (Justin & Stephanie Shults, Alexander Pinczowski and his Sister, Sascha)
AFTER AMERICANS DIED AND WERE HEINOUSLY KILLED IN A TERROR BOMB ATTACK IN BRUSSELS, BARACK OBAMA ENJOYED HIM SELF AT A BASEBALL GAME IN CUBA AND DANCING IN ARGENTINA.
Sadly, two more Americans have been confirmed to have been killed in the Brussels bombing terror attack in Brussels, Belgium. The two have been identified as a married couple, Justin and Stephanie Shults. They were killed in the bombings at Brussels’ Zaventem Airport. Earlier Sunday, the White House said that President Barack Obama telephoned the parents of an American couple identified as among the dead in last week’s attacks. What, Obama didn’t have a more pressing golf game to attend? Justin Shults was originally from Gatlinburg, Tennessee, and his wife, Stephanie, was a native of Lexington, Kentucky. They graduated together from Vanderbilt University’s Owen Graduate School of Management. Previously, Alexander Pinczowski and his sister, Sascha, were killed at Brussels airport.
Four Americans are confirmed to have been killed in last week’s terror attacks in Brussels, the State Department said late Sunday.
A State Department official confirmed the deaths of two additional U.S. citizens in a brief statement, but declined to identify them. The statement expressed “our deepest condolences” to those who had lost loved ones. The department initially said Friday that two Americans had died in the attacks.
Over the weekend, married couple Justin and Stephanie Shults were confirmed to have been killed in the bombings at Brussels’ Zaventem Airport. A family member told the Associated Press they were dropping Stephanie’s mother off at the airport and were watching her walk through security when the bombs went off.
President Barack Obama telephoned the couple’s parents earlier Sunday. The White House said Obama offered his condolences and praised Justin and Stephanie Shults as epitomizing all that was good about America.
On Friday, U.S. officials told Fox News that the wife of an Air Force lieutenant colonel had been killed in the airport attack. The unidentified serviceman and four other members of his family were injured in the blast.
Really, so now Obama decides to act like a president and offer his condolences? Sorry, but Obama should never and I repeat never have attended a baseball game in Cuba and then danced the night away in Argentina as the ISIS terror attacks ripped through Brussels and murdered Americans. But what would you expect from a president who cares more about himself than We the People. But of course ISIS doesn’t pose a threat. Who is the real JV?

TALK ABOUT HAVING 9 LIVES, OR AT LEAST THREE …
19 year old Mason Wells is either lucky or a lightening rod for trouble. The teenager has actually survived three brushes with terrorism.
An American injured in the Brussels terror attacks has already been impacted previous terror attacks in Boston and Paris, his family said.
Mason Wells, 19, was injured in the bombing at the Brussels airport along with two other American Mormon missionaries who had gone to help check in other missionaries who were traveling to the U.S.
Wells suffered a ruptured Achilles tendon, shrapnel injures, as well as second- and third-degree burns on his face and hands after the bombing, his father Chad Wells told ABC News.
The teen missionary had previously been impacted by other terror attacks in Paris and Boston.
“This is his third terrorist attack,” Chad Wells said, noting he was with his son just a block from the Boston Marathon bombing.
“This is the third time that sadly in our society that we have a connection to a bomb blast,” Wells told ABC News. “We live in a dangerous world and not everyone is kind and loving.”
Donald Trump Defends The Size Of His Hands, Endowment: “I Guarantee You There Is No Problem” … Rubio Defends His Attacks on Trump
WHAT HAS HAPPENED TO THE COUNTRY THAT I GREW UP IN … REFERENCING PENIS SIZE DURING A PRESIDENTIAL DEBATE?
How sad and pathetic have we become and what has happened to the culture in this country as it is now perfectly okay to reference penis size during a presidential debate. I thought I had heard it all until last night. While watching a presidential debate, as candidate Donald Trump is vying for the President of the United States and the leader of the free world actually bragged about his penis size. SHAMEFUL. Shame on Marco Rubio for bringing up Trump’s hand size in the first place, shame on FOX News for stirring the pot and asking the ridiculous question, shame on Donald Trump for making a reference to the size of his manhood and shame on the American people, Conservatives and Trump supporters for not being offended. I don’t even know what to say anymore . A note to Republicans and Conservatives … what would you be saying and feel about these comments had Bill Clinton or Barack Obama made such a comment?
“Look at those hands. Are they small hands? And he referred to my hands if they are small, something else must be small. I guarantee you there is no problem. I guarantee you.”
Well, I also happen to call him a lightweight, OK, and I have said that,” Trump said. “So I would like to take that back. He’s really not that much of a lightweight. I have to say this. He hit my hands.”
Trump held up his hands for the audience.
“Look at those hands. Are they small hands? And he referred to my hands if they’re small, something else must be small. I guarantee you there’s no problem. I guarantee you,” Trump said.
The crowd whooped and the debate moderators quickly moved on. The first half-hour of the debate has been marked by constant arguing and interrupting by Rubio and Trump, whose war of words has escalated dramatically over the past two weeks.
Former Mexican President Vicente Fox Says of Trump’s Wall, “I’m Not Going to Pay For That F*cking Wall” (VIDEO) … Trump Resonds, “It just got 10 feet taller!”
FORMER MEXICAN PRESIDENT HAS SOME WORDS FOR DONALD TRUMP AND HIS WALL …
Wow, in an interview with Fusion, former Mexican President Vicente Fox had some strong words for Donald Trump and Hispanics that would vote for the would be US presidential candidate. Fox stated regarding Trumps proposed building of a border wall between Mexico and the United States, “I declare — I’m not going to pay for that f—ing wall. [Trump] should pay for it. He’s got the money.” But that was not the half of it. Fox went on to call Trump a crazy man and that Trump was neither a Republican or a Democrat. He went on to say that Trump is ego-concentric. Fox compared Trump to a false prophet and warned fellow Hispanics to be very careful.
Video warning: Adult language
Former Mexican President Vicente Fox says his nation will not pay for Donald Trump’s proposed border wall.
“I declare — I’m not going to pay for that f—ing wall,” he told Fusion’s Jorge Ramos during an interviewThursday. “[Trump] should pay for it. He’s got the money.”
“This nation is going to fail if it goes into the hands of a crazy guy,” Fox added of the U.S. “Democracy can’t take us to crazy people that don’t know what’s going on in the world today.”
Fox said he was shocked by exit polls from the Nevada GOP presidential caucuses showing some Hispanic support for Trump.
“It worries me, this last caucus in Nevada,” he said. “[He won] 44 percent of Hispanics. I’d like to know who those Hispanics are because they’re followers of a false prophet.
“He’s going to take them to the desert,” Fox continued. “If they think they would benefit from an administration led by Donald Trump, they are wrong. Please, you Hispanics, Latinos in [the] U.S., open your eyes. It’s not to defend our race. It’s not to defend our creed. It’s to defend this very same nation that is hosting you.
UPDATE I: Trump Responds to Vincente Fox at GOP Debate … The wall “just got 10 feet taller!”
The wall Donald Trump would build at the U.S.-Mexican border “just got 10 feet taller” was the the Republican presidential front-runner’s response to a former Mexican president that Mexico’s “not paying for that f***ing wall.”
Trump also called upon the former Mexican president to apologize for dropping the f-bomb at the CNN GOP presidential debate in Houston Thursday.
Obama’s Secretary of State John Kerry Says … Funds From Iran Sanctions Relief Could End Up In Terrorists’ Hands
WELCOME TO THE NOT SO SAFE WORLD OF OBAMA IN WONDERLAND … REMEMBER WHEN A PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES PURPOSE WAS TO ACT IN THE BEST INTEREST OF WE THE PEOPLE, NOT THE MULLAHS OF IRAN?
Barack Obama White House and Secretary of State John Kerry both admit that some of the $100′s of billions of unfrozen Iranian assets could find its way to support terrorism. In other words, Barack Obama and John Kerry just negotiated a deal to fund terrorism against the United States. ARE YOU KIDDING ME? These same people will provide you with the twisted logic that the United States and its allies are now safer because of an Iranian nuclear deal, that most rational people know and understand that Iran will never keep its word, and having paid Iran billions, knowing that some of it will go to support and sponsor terrorism.
These people should be jailed for treason. They actually just admitted that they have funded terrorism. So if an individual person does it or is accused of it, they are arrested, thrown in jail, tried, founds guilty and imprisoned. But if Obama does it, he is hailed as a hero. Who is buying this BS?
“I’m not going to sit here and tell you that every component of that could be prevented, but I can tell you this, right now, we are not seeing the early delivery of funds going to that kind of endeavor at this point in time. I’m sure at some point some of it will, but that has never made the difference of what is happening there.”
“The only observation we’ve made on how they would spend the money is the observation from the secretary of state that it certainly seems possible, if not likely, that they will use some of those funds to support acts of terrorisms,” White House press secretary Josh Earnest added later in the day. “That possibility certainly exists.”
What a sick, twisted America we live in under the Obama regime. It took Barack Obama and his band of woefully ignorant and all too willing cronies to pay off Iran and the mullahs; however, the American hostages held in Iran got butkis as the State Department told us Wednesday the settlement isn’t connected to the claims of terrorism victims.
Ali Khamenei congratulated Iran’s diplomats on Tuesday for making the “front of arrogance and bullying”—that would be the U.S.—retreat. Iran’s Supreme Leader has good reason to be happy. Having preserved the core of his nuclear capabilities, his regime is now on the receiving end of a financial windfall.
Take the financial component of the nuclear accord that took formal effect on Saturday. In addition to lifting most sanctions and releasing more than $100 billion in frozen Iranian assets, the Obama Administration over the weekend agreed to pay the mullahs a separate $1.7 billion to settle an Iranian claim dating to the 1970s.
That amount includes a $400 million trust fund used by the Shah to purchase American arms before the 1979 Islamic Revolution, plus $1.3 billion in interest. You can argue whether the trust fund properly belongs to the regime that overthrew the Shah, but at least that $400 million was originally Iranian money.
The $1.3 billion interest payment will come from U.S. taxpayers, which U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry claims “was fixed at a reasonable rate of interest.” Maybe so, but it happens that $1.7 billion is also the amount at issue in a case brought by American victims of Iranian terrorism against the Central Bank of Iran. The plaintiffs include victims and survivors of the 1983 Beirut barracks bombing and the 1996 Khobar Towers bombing, among other Iranian-directed atrocities.
Yet President Obama and Mr. Kerry didn’t press for fair settlements for these victims as part of the nuclear deal and now seem to be pre-emptively reimbursing Tehran for its potential losses from the claims. The State Department told us Wednesday the settlement isn’t connected to the claims of terrorism victims.

Donald Trump on New York Values – In His Own Words from 1999 on Meet the Press with Tim Russert (VIDEO)
OK, TIME TO TELL THE TRUTH ABOUT NEW YORK VALUES FROM DONALD TRUMPS OWN LIPS …
I like some of the things that Donald Trump says and has to offer and I also like Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) as well, so when the dust up over New York values popped up, I figured it would go away just like the rest of the nonsensical, irrelevant issues that take place during a primary. However, it would appear that the MSM and Trump want it to have legs. So let’s just dispel all the BS right here and now. Sorry Donald, you are wrong on this one and you earn no points, except with liberals and the liberal MSM. Neither of which will get you a GOP presidential nomination.
Take a good look at the VIDEO below of Download Trump from October 24, 1999 in an interview with the late Tim Russert on NBC’s ‘Meet the Press’. When asked about whether gays should serve in the military, Trumps response was … “It would not disturb me. I mean, hey, I lived in New York City and Manhattan all my life, so my views are a little bit different than if I lived in Iowa, perhaps…”. And when asked about partial birth abortion Trump’s response was, “Well, look, I’m very pro-choice…and again, it may be a little bit of a New York background, because there is some different attitude in different parts of the country, and you know, I was raised in New York, and grew up and work and everything else in New York City.“ Hmm … so in both cases he references New York City and because of his being raised there he could have different views than that of other people in other parts of the country.
AMERICA, WAKE THE HELL UP, DONALD TRUMP JUST ADMITTED IN HIS 1999 INTERVIEW THAT NYC/NEW YORK HAS A DIFFERENT SET OF VALUES THAN OTHER PARTS OF THE COUNTRY!!!
A note to Donald Trump and your continued nastiness and personal bullying attacks on the other candidates, its growing old. Eventually, the winner of the GOP primary is going to have to unite the party and take on the Democrat candidate. With the rate you are going, you could the reunite anything. Which is why the MSM is bating you. Wisen up!
From The Daily Wire: Proof Trump’s a Cynical Phony on ‘New York Values’
RUSSERT: Do you think gays should be allowed to be married?
TRUMP: It’s something I haven’t given lots of thought to. I live in New York City, there is a tremendous movement on to have and allow gay marriage. It’s just something that is too premature for me to comment on.
RUSSERT: How about gays serving in the military?
TRUMP: It would not disturb me. I mean, hey, I lived in New York City and Manhattan all my life, so my views are a little bit different than if I lived in Iowa, perhaps…
Then there was this exchange:
RUSSERT: Partial birth abortion. Eliminating of abortion in the third trimester. Big issue in Washington. Would President Trump ban partial birth abortion?
TRUMP: Well, look, I’m very pro-choice…and again, it may be a little bit of a New York background, because there is some different attitude in different parts of the country, and you know, I was raised in New York, and grew up and work and everything else in New York City.
RUSSERT: But you would not ban it.
TRUMP: No…I am pro-choice in every respect as far as it goes, but I just hate it.
Ted Cruz made the comment that Donald Trump represented New York values. Of course every open minded thinking person knows what this means, even The Donald does. However, that did not stop him from some how comparing New York, which means New York City liberal values, to September 11, 2001. WHAT? Who are you kidding? The rest of New York state knows that when individuals reference New York, they are referring to NYC. Its even a fact that many in upstate New York have been upset over for years. However, lets get the facts straight, NYC is a bastion of liberalism and so is the state house in Albany.
Sorry Donald, I actually find that offensive. I agree with Conservative radio talk show host Marl Levin, ‘Cut the Crap’ with ‘New York City Bully Tactics’ Against Cruz. The fact that Donald Trump used 9-11 to some how compare that is what New York values is about is a total crock. Nice try Donald, playing the guilt and 9-11 card. What, are you really a liberal? Because that’s what is looks like to me. For some one like myself who’s best friends come from New York, I understand completely what Ted Cruz meant. We have all heard for years there is the east coast (NYC) and the West coast (LA) and then there is fly over country. The two coasts NYC and LA are as liberal as it gets, flyover is Republican. Don’t you think the folks that live in California and not just in Los Angeles get a bad wrap? Of course they do, but California politics is dominated by LA and San Fransisco.
Oh and as for liberal, lying New York Gov. Cuoma asking for an apology from Cruz. Hey Guv, you should understand this as its a Bronx cheer and a go “F” yourself. It was this same divisive ass-hat who made the comment that conservatives are not New Yorkers, “Because if that’s who they are and they’re the extreme conservatives, they have no place in the state of New York, because that’s not who New Yorkers are.” Hmm, maybe the voters should be a little more hostile to that than a comment that Ted Cruz made.
Martin Luther King Jr. Day 2016 … A Dream We Continue to Strive For … “Will One Day Live in a Nation Where They Will not be Judged by the Color of their Skin but by the Content of their Character”
MARTIN LUTHER KING JR. DAY – 2016.
On this January 18th, 2016 we once again join as a nation to look back on the message of Martin Luther King Jr. and are asked to reflect on “The Dream.” We have come a long way as a nation since the 1960?s. For those who say we have not, know nothing of the past and are lying through their teeth. I personally make it a point every MLK day to listen to the words of the slain Civil Rights leader and his “I Have a Dream” speech and reflect on what it means and where we are today with that dream. Make no mistake about it America, we are a much better country for Martin Luther King Jr’s dream. The United States of America has come a long way. Do not let anyone ever tell you we have not. But we still have a ways to go and may always have to. “The Dream” is much like being a Christian or life in general. You don’t just all of a sudden say, okay, I have reached my goal and nothing more is needed. People are not perfect, they never will be. We strive to be good and follow Christan values. That does not mean we do not fail or fall short. Have we come a long way, yes. However, does that mean we have much more to do and always will.
The greatness of MLK Jr’s message is that it is for all people, not just one to blacks and another to whites. Martin Luther King Jr. had a dream, and it was one of inclusion that we “will not be judged by the color of our skin but by the content of our character”. Do not let any one else try and interpret that dream for you. Never let those with an agenda that is so far from “The Dream” to make you feel less or call you something that you are not. It is sad to witness today that those that are considered Civil Rights activists are more about race hustling and division, than they are about “The Dream”. Martin Luther King Jr. was correct, it is never about the color of one’s skin, it is always about the content of one’s character. Always! Do not ever forget, it is always about character.
I have a dream that “The Dream” of Martin Luther King Jr. will be championed by real Civil Rights activists and not high-jacked by those for their own self-serving purposes and agenda and try to divide us as a country. To do so, to race-bait and to divide America whether you be a common American citizen, a pastor, a politician or a president does a disservice to Martin Luther King, Jr. and his “DREAM.” How I wish there was a true Martin Luther King Jr. alive today to champion the cause.
Martin Luther King – I Have A Dream Speech – August 28, 1963
Full text of MLK Jr’s “I Have a Dream” speech can be read here (pdf).
I say to you today, my friends, that in spite of the difficulties and frustrations of the moment, I still have a dream. It is a dream deeply rooted in the American dream.
I have a dream that one day this nation will rise up and live out the true meaning of its creed: “We hold these truths to be self-evident: that all men are created equal.”
I have a dream that one day on the red hills of Georgia the sons of former slaves and the sons of former slave owners will be able to sit down together at a table of brotherhood.
I have a dream that one day even the state of Mississippi, a desert state, sweltering with the heat of injustice and oppression, will be transformed into an oasis of freedom and justice.
I have a dream that my four children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character.
I have a dream today.
And if America is to be a great nation this must become true. So let freedom ring from the prodigious hilltops of New Hampshire. Let freedom ring from the mighty mountains of New York. Let freedom ring from the heightening Alleghenies of Pennsylvania!
Let freedom ring from the snowcapped Rockies of Colorado!
Let freedom ring from the curvaceous slopes of California!
But not only that; let freedom ring from Stone Mountain of Georgia!
Let freedom ring from Lookout Mountain of Tennessee!
Let freedom ring from every hill and molehill of Mississippi. From every mountainside, let freedom ring.
And when this happens, when we allow freedom to ring, when we let it ring from every village and every hamlet, from every state and every city, we will be able to speed up that day when all of God’s children, black men and white men, Jews and Gentiles, Protestants and Catholics, will be able to join hands and sing in the words of the old Negro spiritual, “Free at last! free at last! thank God Almighty, we are free at last!”
Martin Luther King’s Last Speech: “I’ve Been To The Mountaintop”
Al Jazeera America Shutting Down … Flashback: Hillary Clinton, ‘Viewership Of Al Jazeera Is Going Up In The United States’
IMAGINE THAT, AL JAZEERA AMERICA FAILED IN AMERICA, GOING THE WAY OF THE DO DO …
The Al Jazeera America will be closing up shop by April 30, 2016. The channel launched in early 2o13 and hit the airwaves in August 2013 after the purchase of Al Gore’s Current TV. That was a story unto itself when Al “Mr. Global Warming” Gore sold True TV to Al Jazeera, a media entity which was funded mostly by the government of Qatar, which is of course gets most of its money from oil. No hypocrisy there now, is there? As stated at the Daily Caller, Al Jazeera America is shutting down after less than two-and-a-half years of operation, a victim of tanking oil prices that left its owners unable to finance the virtually-unwatched cable channel.Al Jazeera, which made a massive investment in covering the United States less than three years ago, is slamming the brakes on its American operation.
Al Jazeera America, a cable news channel that debuted in August 2013, is shutting down. Employees were informed of the decision during an all-hands staff meeting on Wednesday afternoon.
During the meeting, Al Jazeera America brass said the channel’s business model was “no longer sustainable.” It will shut down by April 30, an Al Jazeera America executive told staff, saying the decision was made by the channel’s board of directors and was not a reflection of the quality of their work.
Employees also were told that Al Jazeera will pursue a new global online strategy with content delivered from the U.S. later this year.
Remember when Hillary praised Al Jazeera News and Al “global warming” Gore Sold his news network to an oil producing country?
Remember when Hillary Clinton called it real news? As secretary of state in 2011 Hillary Clinton touted Al Jazeera as a “really effective” news network with viewership that was “going up in the United States.” More from the Politico on the death of Al Jazeera America.
The Qatar-based Arab-language broadcaster Al Jazeera created an American channel two-and-a-half years ago in a bid to bring its brand to U.S. audiences that were increasingly being exposed to global media.
Al Jazeera made a mission of doing in-depth, enterprising reportage that would eschew what it saw as the frenetic, soundbite-heavy character of U.S. cable news.
But the channel failed to build up a substantial viewership here, and was available only in about 60 million American homes, compared with roughly 100 million households that have cable TV. Its ratings, which approached 28,000 viewers in primetime in 2015 and 19,000 viewers in total day, according to Nielsen, were paltry compared to the big-three cable news channels.
Al Jazeera bought its way into the U.S. market for a reported $500 million in January 2013 when it acquired Current TV, the struggling news channel co-founded by Al Gore in 2005, and took over its slot on the cable dial.
DOES IT MATTER IF IT WAS THOUSANDS, HUNDREDS OR SCORES … THERE WERE SOME MUSLIMS THAT CHEERED WHEN THE TWIN TOWERS FELL.
Politics is about embellishing the truth of your actions and those of your competitors. Donald Trump created a fire storm claiming that “thousands and thousands” of Muslims in Jersey City cheered the fall of the twin towers on 9/11. Some have called him a liar. Well, maybe not a liar, just stretching the truth a bit. It turns out that there were some Muslims in Jersey City, NJ dancing in the streets and celebrating the collapse of the Twin Towers in NYC on September 11, 2001. How do I know? I remember seeing the news coverage back then myself. The new media showed some shots from NJ as well as from the Middle East of Muslims celebrating the death of nearly 3000 Americans. For those who want to say it never happened at all are the liars. I think we can all agree that there are people who hate America.
So it wasn’t 10′s of thousands, but does it matter if it was only 100, 50 or 10. What are these people doing in this country and spreading their vile hate in America? If they hate us so much that they would celebrate, why are they here? The MSM knows damn well what happened that day, they reported on it. Semantics aside, there was cheering.
In the weeks since Donald Trump ignited a firestorm by claiming “thousands and thousands” of Muslims in Jersey City cheered the fall of the twin towers on 9/11, elected officials, religious leaders and a former state attorney general denied the existence of celebrations in the city that day.
Media outlets, after scouring archived news stories and video footage, could not find verified accounts of Jersey City Muslims rejoicing.
But in a new examination by NJ Advance Media, a police officer who worked on 9/11 and residents on the outskirts of Journal Square say they witnessed small pockets of people celebrating before the groups dispersed or were broken up by authorities.
Among the news organization’s findings:
• A retired police captain, Peter Gallagher, said he cleared a rooftop celebration of 20 to 30 people at 6 Tonnele Ave., a four-story apartment building with an unobstructed view of Lower Manhattan, in the hours after the second tower fell.
“Some men were dancing, some held kids on their shoulders,” said Gallagher, then a sergeant. “The women were shouting in Arabic and keening in the high-pitched wail of Arabic fashion. They were told to go back to their apartments since a crowd of non-Muslims was gathering on the sidewalk below and we feared for their safety.”
Sorry, MSM … Rush making a lot of sense, watch below.
So were there 1000′s, probably not. But there are probably thousands of people who witnessed the same incidents.
