The riots at United States embassies in the Muslim world spread overnight to Yemen, and broke out again in Cairo. Also, the Associated Press might have found the real man behind the Innocence of Muslims film. If so, they have a surprise for most readers: he is not an Israeli Jew, but a Coptic Christian.

Yesterday, Muslim street mobs scaled the wall of the United States Embassy in Cairo and attacked and burned the United States Mission in Benghazi, Libya.

Obama snubs Israel again

Barack Obama did it again. He refuses to meet Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu of Israel this month. Netanyahu will attend this year’s General Assembly session at the United Nations in New York City. But according to Israeli officials, Barack Obama can’t bother to make time to see Netanyahu. His “schedule” won’t let him. Everyone who cares to know, knows that’s false. Obama does not want to see Netanyahu. And at least one political observer says that Obama might have thrown away his chances to stay in office by striking this attitude.

Obama eligibility: Israel joins the fray

The Obama eligibility affair went international yesterday. A scientific institute in Israel analyzed the long-form birth certificate document. They found, as many others have done, that the document is a forgery. They also severely criticized the American Congress and courts for not acting on, or even investigating, the Obama eligibility issue.

Democrats v. Republicans – it’s about more than politics

The 2012 Democratic Party Platform stole some of the wind from Mr. Obama’s sails last week in their attempt to take God and Jerusalem out of their Platform. The Democrats later put them back in amidst much controversy. Well, Mr. Obama may have no one to blame but himself. The platform for the incumbent party usually comes from the sitting president.

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.

Obamacare in one sentence

A viral video sums up Obamacare in one sentence. Naturally, it’s long. But in that sentence, Barbara Bellar shows everything wrong with Obamacare. She also shows what’s wrong with the rest of government, and with the philosophy that guides politicians today.

Obama’s spellbinding speech

If you watched Barack Obama’s speech on Thursday night, you may have noticed how his mediocre words affected those who watched it. I saw tears streaming from eyes – as if they were in the presence of greatness. How does he do it? How does he manage to mesmerize his followers without saying anything? He isn’t the first to yield this kind of power with his words. As I recall, a certain German Chancellor, who became Führer, knew a few things about how to mesmerize an audience.
