For a Moment, I forgot That Chris Matthews is a Dumb-ass Mick:

Oh good lord! The headline is a joke. A play on Chris Matthews' own words, to show how stupid they were. I'm amazed that some people don't get it. Please stop e-mailing me that the headline is inappropriate.

Obama: "The difference between 1994 and 2010 is ME"

It really is hard to overstate the Hugo-Chavez-like arrogance. A real jaw-dropper! President Obama personally dismissed any comparison between Democrats now and under Bill Clinton 16 years ago -- by saying his personal popularity would bail everybody out in the mid-term election. "Well, the big difference here and in ’94 was you’ve got me.’ We’re going to see how much difference that makes now.” Obama readying a speech for third graders. No kidding. And they called Bush a moron?

Miracles Happen!

An American crew rescues a Haitian child. I could look at this wonderful picture all day long. God bless these wonderful rescuers.

Love It: Senator Scott Brown takes hard line for Israel

In an interview with a local Boston paper, Scott Brown came out swinging for Israel: By Kenneth H. Kaplan

Nearing the end of a brief Senate campaign focused almost exclusively on domestic issues, State Sen. Scott Brown, the Republican candidate, sought to sharply distinguish himself from his Democratic opponent in the areas of security and Mideast policies. Brown called Attorney General Martha Coakley wrong on both Iran and Afghanistan and portrayed himself as a longtime friend of Israel who would be one of its leading advocates in Washington.

Brown, a lieutenant colonel in the National Guard who cited more than once his "training in the issues of war and peace,'' said Coakley is "out of touch on military issues." He said she is making a mistake by extending constitutional rights to terror suspects "at taxpayers' expense," insisting that they instead be treated as enemy combatants.

Brown spoke last weekend by phone from his home in Wrentham in advance of the Jan. 19 special election. At times both laid back and feisty in the half-hour interview, he wondered aloud whether young American Jews fully understand Israel's security needs. He criticized President Obama for pressing Israel to freeze all settlement activity, but praised his plan to send more troops to Afghanistan. On the campaign itself, he said, "If I could have the Jewish community come out, a bloc [Coakley] thinks she's getting, I'll win this thing by 5 to 8 percent."

The following are excerpts from the interview:

Q: Israel enjoyed extremely close ties with the United States under the Bush administration. Critics say despite that, no real progress was made toward achieving peace, leading them to conclude that the US should put more pressure on Israel. Do you subscribe to that view'

I understand it, but I don't agree with it. ... President Bush was one of the most pro-Israel presidents in our lifetime, and first of all, it takes two or three entities to get down to the bargaining table and come up with peace. But when you have groups who will not adhere to the treaties of yesteryear and want to have a whole new set of treaties, one of the first things you need to do is have these entities recognize the agreements and honor them, and obviously recognize the right for Israel to actually survive.

Q: Speaking of existing agreements, Israel previously agreed to stop building more settlements. The Obama administration pressed Israel to halt any more settlement activity. Are settlements an obstacle to achieving a two-state solution'

Well certainly, but Israel also has the right to live in its lands without having another country dictate terms before you get to the bargaining table. Whether it's close settlements or not build, you can't be giving away cards before you get to the bargaining table. ... I find it offensive that [Obama is] setting the terms before even sitting down at the table. ... I think that Israel had done more than enough in terms of extending the olive branch to get people to the bargaining table.

Q: Israel's security barrier in the West Bank and its incursion into the Gaza Strip both achieved their aims, measured by the reduction in suicide bombings inside Israel and rocket fire from Gaza. Yet both have been condemned as violating Palestinians' rights. Are Israel's methods excessive'

A: Well, when it comes to your survival, I don't know, what's excessive' When you have people lobbing missiles into your bedrooms, you need to establish security measures to protect your kids, your families. ... And don't forget. when you have Hamas lobbing missiles from hospitals and schools, you're at an unfair disadvantage. Israel and the United States, we follow the Geneva Conventions and the protocols and the laws of war.

Q: The United States was fortunate to have been spared in the attempted attack aboard a Detroit-bound plane. How should the US tighten air security' Is there anything that should or should not be borrowed from Israel's methods, which, while effective, have been criticized for involving profiling'

A: Let me just backtrack and add another wrinkle to that. I do not believe that these people should be treated as ordinary criminals. They should be treated as enemy combatants. We're in a war. Clearly there was a tie to Al Qaeda. [The Detroit suspect] should never have been lawyered up at taxpayer expense. He should immediately be treated as an enemy combatant and transferred down to Gitmo or some other facility, and interrogated under the laws of the United States and the Geneva Convention and all the laws of war, first of all. So there's a mistake that Martha Coakley is making by providing constitutional rights to enemy combatants and opening up a whole new level of rights that they're not entitled to at taxpayer expense. ... I would rather spend more time keeping our people safe and then maybe infringing on our liberties a little bit at a time when in fact there are some very serious threats upon us.

Q: How concerned are you that Iran is close to acquiring a nuclear weapon' Do you believe economic sanctions can halt the Iranian program' If not, should other measures be considered, or should the world, and Israel, find a way to coexist with a nuclear Iran'

That's scary. Well, first of all there's a couple of things happening. Ahmadinejad ... Martha Coakley wants to have one-on-one negotiations with him. She would go there. That's ridiculous. You don't want to legitimize his regime and give it a propaganda tool. She'd be the only one who wants to do that. Not even President Obama wants to do that. Low-level negotiations are great, but they're obviously playing the cat and mouse game. ...

They're at 28 percent unemployment. Their cash reserves are almost gone. So if there is any type of economic threat right now, that can work ... it would shut their industry down cold. ...

Everyone knows that Israel has the right to protect itself. The option to attack Iran is always there. You don't even need to mention it.

Q: Martha Coakley recently voiced opposition to Obama's plan to send more troops to Afghanistan. What do you think should be the American commitment'

First of all, she's wrong. It shows how out of touch she is with military issues. ... By having the amount of troops we have there now, they're spread so thin that they're vulnerable. So ... I do support the president. Especially his 180 on this very issue. He took the time to figure out what the problem was. I commend him for that, publicly. ... He's looking to provide the tools and resources to our men and women to finish the job. And the job is very clear. It's to make sure the Taliban and Al Qaeda do not reestablish bases, reestablish control.

Israeli Comedy Show Takes on US Airline Security

I particularly liked the reference to "our security chief, Hassan Abu Jamal". Very funny:

Still waiting for the Saudi's and Iranians...waiting...waiting...waiting...

In an earlier post, immediately following the earthquake, I stated that "the chips are down, now we will see which countries come through and which do not." Now we have our answers:


Raw footage:

Ron Paul is a Blithering Idiot

A whack job conspiracy theorist and a blame America firster. Here are a few of his nutty ideas on videotape, right out of his mouth:

"There’s been a coup, have you heard? It’s the CIA coup. The CIA runs everything, they run the military. They’re the ones who are over there lobbing missiles and bombs on countries. … And of course the CIA is every bit as secretive as the Federal Reserve. … And yet think of the harm they have done since they were established after World War II. They are a government unto themselves. They’re in businesses, in drug businesses, they take out dictators … We need to take out the CIA."

Scott Brown Wins!!!

CNN Kicking Fox News' Rear End in Haiti Coverage.

Usually I am far more inclined to watch Fox News. My disdain for CNN goes back decades and will I never forgive them for their awful and biased US politics and Middle East coverage during the 80's and 90's. But in the last year or so, they have begun to make a real effort at straight reporting. Their reporting from Haiti is nothing short of heroic. I never thought I could say something like this: Bravo CNN.

Infections Out of Control


The snotty comment from that Doctor who said "makes me almost ashamed to be an American" is completely out of line. No country is doing more right now than the US, with a huge hospital ship on the way and thousands of troops to maintain order. Other than that, it's a fascinating piece.

UPDATE: Bill Clinton responds to slow response charge, from the above report and reacts to the speed of Israeli field hospital. In this case Clinton is absolutely correct. The US is carrying the heavy load here by far, and there is no place for this type of finger-pointing.

Israeli field hospital commander motivates his troops in Haiti. Operating the largest and most sophisticated hospital in the region at the most critical moment. The worst cases are sent to this hospital:

80 Year Old Man Marries 11 Year Old Girl in Saudi Arabia

From that bastion of right-wing hysteria, Al-Arabia, comes this report from Saudi Arabia. These reports are almost a daily occurrence in Saudi Arabia and much of the Arab world. Most of these types of marriages go un-noticed and happen every day.

Raw footage, Large IDF Unit Arrives in Haiti


From the eyes of your typical Israel-hater: Zionist oppressors disturbing the comfortable rest of a Haiti civilian.
The IDF has sent one of the largest medical and rescue operations of any country, to Haiti. Will work under coordinated US command. Multiple rescues in progress. Still waiting for that medical-rescue unit from Saudi Arabia. Lets hope some Arab countries can be embarrassed into doing something.

UPDATE: Great piece on CNN covering IDF field hospital.

A Tough Day

The chips are down, let's see which countries talk the talk, and which countries walk the walk, when it comes to rescue and medical aid.

UPDATE: So far, the number of rescue teams or medical assistence pledged from Muslim countries? ZERO.

The Tel Aviv Cluster

Great op-ed in the New York Times today by David Brooks. I disagree with a few minor points, but it is a strong piece. It's interesting how most people don't have the slightest clue that every time they use a cell phone or turn on their computers, they are using some form of Israeli-originated technology. Even the hate-Israel/pro-terrorist, boycott crowd, don't realize how the world has passed them by as they bitch and moan, and fantasize about how Jews drink the blood of Palestinian children.

A small example of thousands of inovations pouring out of Israel as we speak:

The big mo in an uphill State. YES WE CAN! To steal a phrase

No smoke-filled back room deals with shady union bosses and machine politics. Just regular folks determined to beat the machine:

12 Muslims Show Up for an Anti-Terror rally in Detroit:

Well, 12 is better than zero, and I certainly respect and support those who showed up. But still, the rally was well publicized in advance, and the 'wonderful' Detroit area does have the largest Muslim population in the county. They could only muster 12 people to show up to protest terrorism coming from their own community. The now it turns out that the small group are the subject of death threats. Wow!

British couple arrested in Dubai for "sex outside of marrige"

All the Western idiots who rushed to Dubai, are discovering a few thing. First, be careful not to default on your mortgage, because there is debtors prison in Dubai. And be careful who you have sex with, because if you have a relationship and are unmarried, or engage in an extra marital fling. expect to go to prison.

Harry Reid Outdoes Trent Lott by a Mile:

Reid: "Obama is light skinned, with no Negro dialect, unless he wants to have one." Now, if anyone other than a racist liberal would have said such a thing, they would have been run out of town faster than you can say 'Trent Lott'. But in the Democrat Party, even ex-Grand Wizards of the Klu-Klux-Clan are warmly welcomed (Robert Byrd anyone?).

Within hours, President Obama rushed to "forgive" the wayward Senate Majority Leader from his own party. Of course, back in 2002, Senator Obama was not so forgiving: "The Republican Party itself has to drive out Trent Lott. If they have to stand for something, they have to stand up and say this is not the person we want representing our party." Hmmmm.

But we are just getting warmed up. The same book that exposed the Reid quote, also has this little doozie from Bill Clinton:

Hillary bungled Caroline, Bill’s handling of Ted was even worse. The day after Iowa, he phoned Kennedy and pressed for an endorsement, making the case for his wife. But Bill then went on, belittling Obama in a manner that deeply offended Kennedy. Recounting the conversation later to a friend, Teddy fumed that Clinton had said, A few years ago, this guy would have been getting us coffee.
Well, the Democrat Party was the party of Slavery and Jim Crow.

Well, we knew this was comming. Of course, the biggest suckers in this story are my fellow American Jews who voted this guy in. What exactly did they expect from a guy who sat in the Reverend Wright's churce for twenty years.

According to American law, Mitchell said, the US can freeze its support for aid to Israel. He added that all options must remain open and that the sides must be convinced about what their important interests are.

Here is the result:

In la la land, It's raciest to point out that a racist radical Muslim, who shouts "kill the Jews" and "go back to Africa", should have been profiled. Schlussel has the details.

Israel Opens the Largest Desalination Plant in the World

Israel's water crisis is expected to be effectively over in the next few years, as more water will be pumped from the Mediterranean, than from the Sea of Galilee (Lake Kinnert). It's an extraordinary achievement which will return the Sea of Galilee to its natural level, increase Israel's water security and reduce water-related tensions in the region in general.

There are lies, and then there are Damned Lies:

For a politician, it doesn't get much more blatant than this:

Attack Dogs Trained to Pounce on Any Person Yelling Allahu Akbar in a Crowded Place

You aren't allowed to yell FIRE in a crowded theater, and you sure as hell should not be yelling ALLAHU AKBAR in any crowded location other than a mosque. The IDF will not publicly acknowledge it, but apparently they have (or at least I hope they have) a small army of attack dogs trained to pounce on anyone they come across who yells ALLAHU KABAR in public. It's not a perfect tool, but it sounds to me like a good little piece in an overall security plan. PETA & the ACLU anyone?

Anyway, here's a list of cool counter terror items entering the inventory. The problem is that our side tends to lean on expensive high-tech toys when some times simple low-tech solutions are the way to go.

Jordanian double-agent killed top CIA officers

This is some old fashion, solid reporting by Robert Windrem and Richard Engel over at NBC.

The base was used to direct and coordinate CIA operations and intelligence gathering in Khost, a hotbed of insurgent activity because of its proximity to Pakistan's lawless tribal areas, former CIA officials said. Among the CIA officers killed was the chief of the operation, they said. Six other people were wounded in what was one of the worst attacks in CIA history.

Qari Hussain, a top militant commander with the Pakistani Taliban who is believed to be a suicide bombing mastermind, said last week that militants had been searching for a way to damage the CIA's ability to launch missile strikes on the Pakistani side of the border.

Using remote-controlled aircraft, the U.S. has launched scores of such missile attacks in the tribal regions over the past year and a half, aiming for high-value al-Qaida and other militant targets. The most successful strike, in August, killed former Pakistani Taliban chief Baitullah Mehsud at his father-in-law's home.

The Washington Post reported Friday that the CIA base has been at the heart of overseeing this covert program. The newspaper cited two former intelligence officials who have visited Chapman as saying that U.S. personnel there are heavily involved in the selection of al-Qaida and Taliban targets for the drone aircraft strikes.
I wonder how many drone strikes took place based on this double agents misinformation. It may be that a good number of these strikes were useless. Perhaps even directed at forces operating against Al Qaeda? Good lord!

Hilarious: Iran Denies Entry to Sen. John Kerry

You've got to hand it to the Obama administration. They just can't stop groveling, and they can't even take a hint. Obama sets deadlines that Iran literally laughs at. The deadlines expire and Iran keeps laughing, then sets its own deadline for the weak US President. Now the administration decides to send Senator John Kerry over to play the role of Nevile Chamberlain, and Kerry, begs as he will, can't even get a visa. How pathetic the United States has become. But don't feel bad, a bunch of leftist Euro-weenies like us again. That's me in the photo with Senator Kerry back in the 90's. Good lord.

Lefties Heartbroken at Rush's Failure to Die

All you have to do is go the comments section at Huffington Post or Daily Kos to see how "compassionate" liberals can be. When it was announced that Rush had been rushed to the hospital with chest pains, there was literally an eruption of celebrations on the "compassionate" side of the political spectrum. Imagine their heartbreak when they saw this press conference today:
