Another Memorial to a Myth



The war machine of the US/zionist/corporate/banker empire must never let the myths rest. Pound it into the public's mind, never let them forget, never let the cheers for blood be silenced.


Let's roll! US Navy's newest ship is a floating tribute to the passengers who fought back on Flight 93 on 9/11
The U.S. Navy's newest ship has been unveiled as a floating tribute to the passengers who lost their lives when Flight 93 has hijacked by terrorists on September 11 2001.

The USS Somerset is filled with reminders of that tragic day including a quilt bearing the names of the 40 passengers and crew on Flight 93 who stormed the cockpit of the hijacked airliner, forcing it to crash in a Southwestern Pennsylvania field but thwarting an attack on Washington D.C.

The ship takes its name from Somerset County where the plane crashed killing everybody aboard while the ship's mess has been named 'Heroes Hall'.

But the warship also bears a physical link with the tragic event after which it was named, 22 tons of steel from a large crane near the crash site was melted down and used to build the sternhold.

Captain Thomas Dearborn, the ship's commanding officer, said: 'Had it not been for their heroic actions, the terrorists would have reached their intended targets, and for sure, countless more lives would've been lost and perhaps even changed the outcome of history as we know it.'  more
The ship, now at Penn's Landing, will be formally commissioned there Saturday

The ship, now at Penn's Landing PA, will be formally commissioned there Saturday March 1.

Throughout the ship's otherwise spartan interior are reminders of Flight 93 and symbols of Somerset County. A map of the county is painted on the floor. Road signs from boroughs and townships were placed on passageway walls. The words Never Forget are etched on the bow deck.
The words "Let's Roll" - the rallying cry of the passengers and crew who stormed the cockpit doors to confront the four hijackers - are inscribed across the rear of the superstructure.
The ship's motto, "Virtus per adversa," "Strength through adversity," is visible throughout.
The Somerset is the last of three warships built to commemorate the Sept. 11 attacks, along with the New York and the Arlington, named for the location of the Pentagon.
The ship is not likely to deploy before 2016 because it has more testing and sea trials to conduct from its home port of San Diego. By then, it will be ready to mobilize for war. more



There's nothing like touring a big boat while half dressed and waving pom poms.

The Philadelphia Eagles cheerleaders get a early look at the USS Somerset and solidify that special relationship between the NFL and the military.






The Avondale Shipyard on the banks of the Mississippi in Louisiana is a place I was once very familiar with. This will be the last warship built there. Don't worry though, someplace else will build others as more borrowed fiat money is available.

  1. Looks like a nice ship, hopefully Israel doesn't decide to bomb it and then order a cover up like they did the U.S. Liberty.

  5. They melted down a crane from nearby where the supposed plane supposedly crashed. ...vomit...
    Puhleese! Who writes this lame stream media 100% bovine excrement?
    If, and I do mean if there was a plane it was blown out of the sky by a US jet 'not with the psy-op, into tiny little bits apread over a 6 (six) mile long area not a tight little hole in the ground.
    Barf is all I can say to this entire "article".

    1. I'm glad you caught that bit of trivia about the crane. Absurd isn't it?

    2. Kenny, geez, you should warn people to get a bucket before reading such hagiography....

      Delete
    3. Hagiography is much too big a word to be used in this case. I prefer simpler terms like bullshit. :)

      Delete
    4. I would have to agree, while hagiography is the study of the saints
      what you are describing is more in the order of complete bullshit

    5. Bullshit it is. Works fir me.

    6. Bullshit is as descriptive of hagiography, the biography of saints, as it is of modern myths.

      "At last, when the darkness of the ages of faith began to be relieved by the slow dawn of modern knowledge, the Church got a few historical scholars; and the moment they turned their scholarship upon the stories of the early saints and martyrs, even the most Catholic of them put their fingers to their nostrils and closed them."

  6. Flight 93 - could carry 200 - 289 passengers , while on the day it 'crashed' it was carrying 33 passengers.

    "Who writes this lame stream media 100% bovine excrement?" - the lame-streamer appears to be a Mr. Ben Endley, whose article doesn't question the incident at all, when as a reporter he should know there are differences of opinion on the veracity of the 9/11 Psy-Op.

  7. Let's Role Play

    I finished watching House of Cards on Netflix last week. Throughout the season, (same as last year) the usual talking heads make cameos and their fake bullshit sounds just like the "real" bullshit. I would venture to say you could take clips from the House of Cards series and intercut them with news clips from the supposed real news and most wouldn't be able to tell the difference. They don't even change the call letters, background graphics, or bumper music. I keep waiting for one of talking heads to look into the camera and wink with a half shit eatin grin. The main character (Spacey) does that, but it is part of the show.

    FWIW they went across the bullshit spectrum:
    Major Garrett, Morley Safer, Morris Jones, Matt Bai, Sean Hannity, Chris Matthews, Chris Hayes
    Rachel Maddow, Ashleigh Banfield, Kelly O'Donnell, Julianna Goldman
    All these are credited as playing themselves on the series for season 2. If you remember, the great one is a fan. He tweeted no spoilers. So there it is. The "real" Leader of the Free World is an avid watcher of the fake Leader of the Free World production. Well no spoilers, lets just say enemies are killed. And am I talking about the show or "real life". The blurred lines continue in the New Matrix.

    1. I'll probably never get to see the series but it sounds like they are making fun of the 'news' audience.

      Here's something related to a comment you made on another post about the "Intercept.' It needs to be verified but I wouldn't doubt if it's true.

      Pierre Omidyar co-funded Ukraine revolution groups with US government, documents show

  8. Well their about statement did say they were going to be adversarial While doing the goog search I saw that Taibbi is coming to First Look to practice his aversarialistic journaling. Is ex-partner Mark Ames next?

    Next up Assange forgives the Pay Pal snub and joins the "effort".

    Control the opposition and you control the opposition.

    Making fun of the news audience? No Way! Remember the 2011 Christmas Card?

  9. Add to my previous comment re: eXiled. Another from that operation actually works at Pando Curious I'd say.

    1. "Control the opposition and you control the opposition." great line! I may have to borrow that sometime.

      Pando vs Intercept. What I read of Greenwald's response to this at his site is that he doesn't care about Omidyar's politics and NGO funding, I guess as long the paychecks keep on coming.....
