Many remember the horror and tragic outcome of September 11, 2001 when four planes were hijacked in one of the worst nightmares of this generation. Two of the four planes struck the former World Trade Center in New York City causing the twin towers to plummet to the ground. A third plane was flown near Washington D.C. hitting the Pentagon while another crashed in a field in Pennsylvania after hijackers were attacked by passengers on board the aircraft. More than 3,000 people were killed in the attacks at the Pentagon and World Trade Center, including more than 400 firefighters and police officers. Beware, America is on the brink of another terrorist attack.
Although many still have problems shaking the images of the 9/11 terrorist attack, sadly for just as many if not more, it has become a distant memory just as Pearl Harbor or the Magna Carta. For those who lost loved ones, it has been engraved as a sore spot in their hearts but for others it has long been tossed into the dust bin of history only to be revived on its anniversary. America has now been hit by another terroristic attack as the nation has seemingly begun to spiral out of control with very little accountability.
Today is going to be remembered by many as Black Monday as the stock market continues to implode in America’s latest terrorist attack. The first causality of war is turning a blind eye to truth. The true terrorist today is not walking around a desert in roman sandals, instead they are on Wall Street in Armani and sear-sucker suits. Is this latest attack the beginning of another Great Depression?
While Americans have been morphed into racial wars and the world of fake entertainment they have silently been forced to wave goodbye to IRAs and 401K benefits. Powerful men have been given “permission” to do what they want while gambling away on Wall Street the life savings of many hard-working citizens. It is time for people to wake up and stop being distracted by the foolishness of those they worship as celebrities and pay attention to what is happening on Wall Street with the nation’s economy.
The rich and powerful have inundated news sites with all kind of noisy chatter from race relations – which is indeed an important issue – to the ever evolving Caitlyn Jenner, as the economy continues to crumble. The DOW has taken a huge plunge capping its worst week since 2011 while citizens continuously exercise their right to look away.
Make no mistake, the events on Tuesday, Sept. 11, 2001 have made in indelible mark in the fabric of history, but it did not stop there. America has been hit again by another terrorist attack. Some people have no idea what the stock market means to the financial security of the nation, but those who do should sell now and reposition 401Ks to a safer place so the funds are available when the need arises. The latest terrorist attack is taking place while the music of the internet continues to lull hard-working citizens to sleep with senseless chatter.
Reportedly, the government was made aware of the intentions surrounding 9/11. For months, various intelligence agencies warned the Bush administration about the impending attacks which ended in tragedy. Almost immediately following the terrorist attack images of the men responsible were released, which implies these 19 men were already on someone’s radar. If they were being tracked it should make people wonder why these terrorists succeeded in claiming the lives of thousands of unsuspecting citizens while implanting fear in the minds of many who remained.
The nation’s economy is on a downward spiral as those in authority have been fixated on creating another war. This time, however, the war will not be against another country, it will be against its own inhabitants. Osama Bin Laden is dead and gone, but the masters on Wall Street are alive and well. Americans are too fixated on the foolishness of presidential hopeful Donald Trump and the cynicism surrounding another oval seat hopeful Hillary Clinton. When the economy implodes it will matter not if the president is a Republican or Democrat or what the political makeup of congress is. What will matter is whether or not people have taken all the measures they can to ensure their stored away funds have been secured from the imminent terrorist attack.
