Saudi national: cover-up?

Boston aftermath - and set-up

On the day of the Boston Marathon Bombing, a certain Saudi national ran from the scene and landed in the hospital with bad burns. At first he was the only “person of interest.” Then authorities searched his apartment and then pronounced him “clean.” And on Wednesday night came word that authorities will deport him, perhaps tomorrow. On national security grounds.

Journalist impostors in America

Valerie Jarrett. Why do journalists not ask how this unelected person became the Third Woman President?

Everyday the journalist impostors of this modern day contribute further to the eventual loss of the rights given them by our Constitution.

Terrorist attack in Libya: Obama knew it

Benjamin Netanyahu gave them hell at the UN today, as Daniel Patrick Moynihan did nearly fifty-nine years earlier.

Ambassador Chris Stevens died in Libya, on September 11, 2012, in a terrorist attack. That much should have been obvious to everyone from the start. We now learn that not only was it obvious, but the Obama administration—and thus Obama himself—knew perfectly well that he had lost an ambassador in a terrorist attack. He knew it twenty-four hours after the event. And still he and others blamed Stevens’ death on an amateurish video and sent at least one Cabinet member out to say the same.

Terrorist attack: ask the obvious questions

Osama Bin Laden compound. A terrorist attack to kill an ambassador, but not to avenge this?

On September 11, 2012, America experienced another terrorist attack, but this time it was on foreign soil. To be clear, our embassies in foreign lands are supposed to be “American.” They are a little piece of real estate that is an extension of American soil in whatever land they are located. Many questions are arising amidst this tragedy.

9/11 conspiracy theories revisited

Office workers jump from the World Trade Center towers, September 11, 2001.

Tomorrow is the eleventh anniversary of 9/11. Uncannily, this anniversary falls on the same day of the week, in the eleventh year. (Numerologists should have a field day.) But this is also the favorite time of year for 9/11 conspiracy theories. Some who propound such theories have nothing to say beyond their own political motives. (See this sample.) But more than anti-Semitism, anti-Americanism, or anti-war-ism keeps 9/11 conspiracy theories current. The government has never investigated  9/11 as thoroughly as it normally would investigate any major disaster involving both transport (the airliners) and civil engineering (three collapsing buildings). Amateur investigators still ask questions that no one has yet answered. Until someone does answer those questions, 9/11 conspiracy theories will stay current. And they will color political debates on liberty, Middle East policy, et cetera ad nauseam.

Hydroplate theory debate reality check

Walt Brown, originator of the hydroplate theory

A challenger of Walt Brown’s Hydroplate Theory now accuses Brown of demanding sensitive information that might, if released, get him killed. He is due for a reality check.

Detention law and the Constitution

The American flag. This Memorial day, remember one who fights for that flag and is now in a Mexican jail.

The new “detention law” that passed the Senate on Thursday has many wondering whether the Constitution still protects Americans from abuse of power.

9/11 conspiracy theories

The saddest part of remembering September 11 is dealing with the myriads of 9/11 conspiracy theories, of both American and Arabic origin.

Remembering September 11 – personal

The second plane hits the South Tower. Some 9/11 conspiracy theories said that this plane was a tanker, not an airliner.

Remembering September 11 is a personal matter for every American, and especially for every resident of the Tri-State region. Herewith a personal case-in-point from your editor.

PR war over Israel

The Damascus Road. An important Middle East prophecy involves the city at its end.

The PR war over Israel is more intense this year than in past years. Meanwhile, Israel is preparing for hot wars.

PR war in perspective

“Public relations” is a dirty game. Israelis know it. Their word for it is hasbarah, which means “propaganda.” They still use that word today, to describe something they have to do.

As well they might. Because ever since the 1967 War, propaganda is what the Arabs have thrown at them. The Arabs learned in 1967 (and again in 1973) that they could not defeat Israel by force of arms. (Quite opposite, in fact!) And so they fight a PR war.
