Monday on The Robert Scott Bell Show:
For a new generation of Marines, 9/11 is history It’s still pitch black and Marine recruits are scurrying around under garish spotlights, stacking their weapons and packs, all under the constant screams of drill instructors who loom over them. Soon they’re filing into a cavernous auditorium. A long, surging stream of shaved heads and green T-shirts. They take their seats and get ready for a history lesson with Staff Sgt. Mark Anthony Ross. “By a show of hands, who was born after the September 11th attack … most of us right?” Ross booms. “Do we know what happened during the 9/11 attacks? For those of us who may not know what happened, our country was under attack from the terrorists, make sense? They came within our borders and attacked us from the inside.” Monday marks the 22nd anniversary of the September 11th attacks. It was a raw, searing day for Americans who watched the Twin Towers collapse, the Pentagon burn and a plane meant for the U.S. Capitol slam into a Pennsylvania field. More than 3,000 people died. But the terrorist attacks are now fading into history, now that American troops are no longer at war.
As 9/11 becomes history, ‘Never forget’ takes on new meaning Twenty-two years now: For all that the anniversary can bring so many of us back to that bright September morning like it was yesterday, ever-more Americans have no memory of 9/11 at all. Today’s college graduates were born after the planes hit the Towers, the Pentagon and that Pennsylvania field. Most barely even recall the Iraq War, for all that it lingered on for years. What was once a universal experience — everyone could talk about where they were that day and how it changed their lives — is becoming history. “Never forget” takes on a whole new meaning. We still have the Tribute in Light, the somber ceremonies at Ground Zero and elsewhere; the museum and the memorials. Cable broadcasts an ever-larger range of documentaries on the events of that day, the runup to it and the aftermath.

Question of The Day!
Thank you Mr. Bell (and Super Don), for all you do! You have made a huge difference in our family and we are so thankful!
I have a question about birth certificates and you are the only one I have heard even mention it.
My husband and I are expecting our second baby in about 5 weeks. We are unsure whether to get a birth certificate for the baby or not and we are considering not.
Could you tell me what your thoughts are on the subject? And if we don’t get a birth certificate, what is the process for drivers license etc later in life?
We would SO appreciate anything you could share with us.
New Mexico governor issues order suspending the right to carry firearms in public across Albuquerque New Mexico Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham on Friday issued an emergency order suspending the right to carry firearms in public across Albuquerque and the surrounding county for at least 30 days in response to a spate of gun violence. The Democratic governor said she expects legal challenges but was compelled to act because of recent shootings, including the death of an 11-year-old boy outside a minor league baseball stadium this week. Lujan Grisham said state police would be responsible for enforcing what amount to civil violations. Albuquerque police Chief Harold Medina said he won’t enforce it, and Bernalillo County Sheriff John Allen said he’s uneasy about it because it raises too many questions about constitutional rights. The firearms suspension, classified as an emergency public health order, applies to open and concealed carry in most public places, from city sidewalks to urban recreational parks. The restriction is tied to a threshold for violent crime rates currently only met by the metropolitan Albuquerque. Police and licensed security guards are exempt from the temporary ban.

Question of The Day!
Enjoyed your interview with dr. Lee Merritt very much. When you two get together in the future, I would love to hear more about her protocol ridding body of parasites, taking chlorine dioxide. Hydrogen peroxide, etc.
Also Robert do you know when you will be updating your aloe/silver protocol for gut.? Very interested in that subject.
Thank you so much.
Hello, My sister, 44, was just recently hospitalized for Congestive Heart Failure with EF of 25%. I’m reading about the benefits of Cardio Miracle and truly believe this will help her. I have heard you talk about the benefits you personally saw with Cardio Miracle. Would you also know if there any research or studies done with people with CHF, that has found Cardio Miracle has helped them? She thankfully to God does not have cholesterol or diabetes but she is overweight. She is changing her diet and I’m trying to help her find a solution because I know the regular prescription medications will not help her heal. She is currently taking Cardio Miracle twice a day, while eating healthy, and walking. I have also read Dr. Sinatra’s book how he recommends taking D-Ribose, CQ-10, magnesium and L Carnitine (all of which are in Cardio Miracle minus the L Carnitine). I believe Cardio Miracle has other Amino Acids instead on L Carnitine. Are the ingredients in Cardio Miracle potent enough to help someone with CHF? Should my sister take it more (like 3 or 4 times a day?) should my sister add additional supplements to this protocol?
Thank you and God bless you.
