This weekend Charles Krauthammer said on Fox News that Obama is simply in over his head. But Rush Limbaugh thinks BHO is blowing up the economy on purpose.
Well, how about both? Maybe this is the Keystone Kops trying to commit national hara kiri?
Domestically, we’re in the longest recession in the last sixty years. And if that’s not enough, take our foreign policy. Please.
The howling fanatics who just stormed the Israeli Embassy in Cairo happen to be the same old Blind Sheikh gang that truck-bombed the Twin Towers in Manhattan in 1993. That was the first NYC attack by Radical Moos, remember? Eighteen years ago. Fortunately, that bomb didn’t do structural damage to the buildings, but it led straight to 9/11/01.
Bill Clinton managed to ignore the Blind Sheikh for two whole terms until ‘those chickens came home to roost’ on 9/11/01, to use Rev Wright lingo.
National Review’s Andy McCarthy was the federal prosecutor for the Blind Sheikh, and has spent years writing about all the chances we’ve blown against Jam’a al-Islamiya. Today they look stronger than ever, or they wouldn’t be storming the Israeli Embassy in Cairo, with Egypt’s boss General Tantawi refusing to answer the phone.
This attack represents the complete breakdown of the 30-year Egypt-Israel Peace Treaty. It would never have happened if Obama had just left President Mubarak in peace. Mubarak kept the Moo Bros out of power.
But no…Obama’s Alinsky Reflex got triggered by those pictures of big crowds in Tahrir Square, and the New York Times told all the mediots that this had to be the ‘Arab Spring.’ CBS News promptly sent comely correspondent Lara Logan into Tahrir Square, where the Moo crowd turned on her and committed gang rape. Score another historic first for Obama and liberal insanity.
See, under Obama those peace-loving Muslims really like the United States of America. It’s because Obama shows respect.” Read more.
Japan: Ground Self-Defense Force Preps for Mass Evacuations in Case of Further Meltdown of Fukushima Reactor 3 Core
“FUKUSHIMA — The Ground Self-Defense Force (GSDF) and residents of the zone between 20 and 30 kilometers from the stricken Fukushima No. 1 nuclear plant held an emergency evacuation drill on Sept. 12.
The drill, held in preparation for any further large-scale emission of radioactive materials from the plant, was the first involving local residents. The GSDF held a similar drill without civilian participation in July.
The scenario for the drill presupposed further meltdown of the Fukushima plant’s No. 3 reactor core, and a local accumulation of radioactive materials emitting 20 millisieverts of radiation within the next four days. A total of some 400 GSDF personnel were deployed for the drill held in the municipalities of Minamisoma, Tamura, Kawauchi, Hirono, Tomioka and Naraha. Thirty-two municipal workers and firefighters along with 18 local residents also joined the drill.” Read more.
Japanese gov’s trying to stop citizens from measuring radiation – “On this morning’s NHK ‘Sunday Debate’ program, Liberal Democratic Party (LDP) Secretary-General Nobuteru Ishihara stated, ‘Geiger counters costing between 40,000 and 50,000 yen ($500-600) provide patchy measurements. We have to try and stop citizens from taking their own radiation measurements.’ It seems that he really doesn’t like the fact that citizens are taking their own radiation readings. Even if the figures are patchy, the measurements still tell us correctly whether the radiation level is high or low.” Source.
By Kate Kelland – “LONDON, Sept 14 (Reuters) – Multidrug-resistant and extensively drug-resistant forms of tuberculosis (TB) are spreading at an alarming rate in Europe and will kill thousands unless health authorities halt the pandemic, the World Health Organisation(WHO) said on Wednesday.
Launching a new regional plan to find, diagnose and treat cases of the airborne infectious disease more effectively, the WHO’s European director warned that complacency had allowed a resurgence of TB and failure to tackle it now would mean huge human and economic costs in the future.
‘TB is an old disease that never went away, and now it is evolving with a vengeance,’ said Zsuzsanna Jakab, the WHO’s Regional Director for Europe.
‘The numbers are scary,’ Lucica Ditiu, executive secretary of the Stop TB Partnership told a news conference in London. ‘This is a very dramatic situation.'” Read more.
During the eruption, a crevice with a depth of about 30 meters was formed on top of the volcano. An earthquake that lasted seven minutes was also recorded, a representative from the Russian Academy of Sciences was quoted as saying.
The volcano’s 10-km ash column was the highest during the past month, breaking the record of 8200 meters.
Currently there is no danger for local communities near the Shiveluch volcano, though the ashes may spread to nearby villages, the representative said.” Read more.
A 3.0 earthquake rattled homes Tuesday evening near Birmingham, AL. It might be weak compared to what we’ve been seeing lately, but it’s enough to rattle a few nerves as well …

“Excellent short documentary on the legal and political issues surrounding Israel and its founding…”
By Adrian Blomfield – “Since the tiny state was founded in 1948, Israel has always regarded itself as a vulnerable bastion of civilization in a hostile region bent on its destruction – ‘a villa in the jungle’, as Ehud Barak, the Israeli defence minister, has put it. But in recent years, Barak’s crude metaphor had seemed less apposite, even as Israel’s interminable conflict with the Palestinians ground on unresolved. Indeed, the jungle seemed to be pushed back in places and tamed in others.
Israel has been at peace with Egypt, its oldest Arab ally, since Jimmy Carter’s triumphant summit at Camp David paved the way for a treaty that has been in many ways the bedrock of the country’s security, guaranteeing peace on its remote southern border. Jordan eventually followed suit, signing a peace treaty of its own, while Turkey strengthened another vital alliance, giving Israel the support of a heavy-hitting Muslim power in the region.
The rest of the Arab world still seemed implacable, but one by one its dictators, despite the anger of their populations, found it pragmatic to reach an accommodation of sorts with Israel, tolerating the interloper in their midst even if not accepting it. Even Syria, which technically remains at war with Israel, found it preferable to keep the peace despite the continued Israeli occupation of the Golan Heights, captured during the Six Day War of 1967.
But, with alarming speed, all these gains now seem in jeopardy, leaving Israel terrified that the jungle is creeping back once more. This month has already proved one of the most nettlesome in Israel’s recent history – with worse to come before it is over, as the Palestinian leadership heads to the United Nations with a potentially explosive application for statehood.” Read more.
