1.Twenty year anniversary of 9/11
Fox News – The U.S. is set to mark the 20th anniversary of the Sept. 11 attacks Saturday with commemorations at New York’s World Trade Center, the Pentagon and a field near Shanksville, Pennsylvania.
The milestone anniversary takes place just weeks after the chaotic U.S. withdrawal from Afghanistan and the return to power of the Taliban, the faction that sheltered the Muslim militant group founded by Osama bin Laden that carried out the attacks.
Nearly 3,000 people died on 9/11/2001.

DML: I ran from the first fallen tower, so today is always a rough day for me. However, unlike years past when I would allow the day to be one of somber feelings and expressions, America is in deep need of a lift. And so I will live my life to the fullest on this day, and I will hold a Wine & Talk podcast with my wife this evening. In doing so, we will also remember the fallen because I Never Forget. The Wine & Talk podcast will be available later tonight on the DML NEWS APP.
2.Disney releasing remainder of 2021 films in theaters only
The Hill – Disney on Friday announced that it would be releasing the remainder of its 2021 films exclusively in theaters for an extended period before eventually making them available on Disney+ following the box office success of recent films despite the coronavirus pandemic.
The company’s media and entertainment division announced the move in a press release, revealing that each of its five upcoming movies will have a minimum 45-day exclusive theatrical release before being offered via streaming to subscribers.
The upcoming films include the November release of Marvel’s “Eternals,” which follows a group of immortal beings with superhuman powers, as well as the long-anticipated remake of the classic musical “West Side Story,” which is scheduled for a December premiere.
DML: It’s another strategy to get you to be vaccinated, maybe? The woke Disney company is forcing its employees to be vaxxed, why not do the same for the customers right? Think about it. Don’t need a shot watching TV, but to get into a theater you’ll need the jab.
Disney announced a new vaccine mandate for its employees.

3.Judge refuses ‘QAnon Shaman’s’ request for temporary prison release
The Hill – A federal judge this week denied a request from the Capitol riot defendant known as the “QAnon Shaman” to be temporarily released from custody to visit his sick grandfather before he died Thursday.
Albert Watkins, the attorney for 34-year-old Jacob Chansley, said in a press release Friday that he had first filed a motion in July for his client to be “released after seven months of solitary confinement to see his ailing maternal grandfather,” who Watkins referred to as “the only adult male constant in Mr. Chansley’s life,” for “one last time before he died.”
“The request came on the heels of a Court ordered psychological evaluation report being released which diagnosed Mr. Chansley with significant and long standing mental health frailties,” the attorney added.

DML: I don’t know anything about this guy other than he dresses like a Democrat. But it’s a big mistake on his part to speak of his dying grandfather. No judge cares about that sort of thing anymore. He should have said he was looking to attend a Black Lives Matter chapter meeting, then he’d get a release.
4.US drone strike that Pentagon said killed Kabul suicide bomber actually ‘killed aid worker and seven children
DailyMail – The drone strike that the Pentagon claimed killed an ISIS-K suicide bomber in Kabul actually targeted an aid worker who had filled his car with water jugs, rather than explosives, according to a shocking new report.
Zemari Ahmadi, 43, was driving the 1996 Toyota Corolla that was destroyed in the August 29 drone strike, killing him and nine family members, including seven children, according to a New York Times investigation.
The Pentagon still maintains that only three civilians died, despite the family now detailing in the new report how their 10 relatives were killed in the blast.
Days after the attack, President Joe Biden gave a speech in which he marked the withdrawal of American troops in Afghanistan by the August 31 deadline. He touted America’s ability to strike terrorists and targets without boots on the ground. But he failed to mention the high civilian casualty rate from the August 29 drone strike, and he failed to mention that children had been killed.
DML: Joe Biden couldn’t wipe his ass without a YouTube “how to” video, did anyone think at the time that he killed a terrorist. As noted on that drone strike day, I said, “He probably killed two mailmen, but we’ll never know the difference.”
5.Unions split on vaccine mandates, complicating Biden push
AP News – The National Nurses Union applauded President Joe Biden’s proposal to require that companies with more than 100 employees vaccinate their work force. The American Federation of Teachers once said vaccine mandates weren’t necessary, but now embraces them. In Oregon, police and firefighter unions are suing to block a mask mandate for state workers.
The labor movement is torn over vaccine requirements — much like the country as a whole — wanting to both support its political ally in Biden and protect its members against infection but also not wanting to trample their workers’ rights.
“Labor unions are a microcosm of the society we live in,” said Patricia Campos-Medina, executive director of Cornell University’s The Worker Institute. “The same political divide we have right now exists within the rank and file of unions.”
That divide complicates matters for Biden as he tries to get the delta variant under control. Unions are a key part of the Democratic Party, and Biden has embraced them to burnish his blue-collar, middle-class image. Dissent in Biden’s own coalition may make it especially hard for him to implement new vaccination requirements. Some unions representing federal workers already objected to his push for inoculation among the U.S. government workforce, saying such matters involving new workplace requirements and discipline need to be negotiated at the bargaining table.
DML: The only way to end this mandate nonsense is by holding the largest march in Washington DC ever to be held. Otherwise, they will continue to strip our rights — we will never again live normally. And if there is nobody willing to do the marching, then by all means push back like the girl at ESPN. Reporter Allison Williams said she will be stepping down for the college football season after she decided to not receive the coronavirus vaccine. In a statement posted to Twitter on Thursday, Williams said she decided to not get the COVID-19 vaccine while she and her husband are trying to conceive a second child. Smart lady, why put your body and baby at risk.

DML PARTING WORDS: To think this country is where it is today in terms of national security (meaning, the lack thereof) is sickening. After 20-years of pretending like he cares about 9/11 and the American people, Joe Biden has wide open borders, and thousands of unvetted Muslim refugees coming in from the Islamic country that harbored the terrorists who killed 3,000 Americans. China is running America, make no mistake. That said, the most important thing you can do for yourself amid all the craziness is boost the immune system with DML CBD. I trust nothing else.
