Never waste a good crisis. Rahm Emanuel, Barack Obama, and Hillary Clinton have all said it. Joining their ranks is MSNBC partisan hack Chuck Todd who, while talking with former sitting Senator whack job Tom Daschle, suggested that if Cap & Tax is not passed as a result of the oil disaster in the Gulf, a crisis will be allowed to go to waste. Todd actually catches himself but says the words anyway. Daschle also catches himself after almost saying, "exactly" but thinks better of it.

What is it with the left not being able to comfortably say what they really mean?

The good news is they're exposing themselves ever more rapidly.

Sorry for two consecutive posts involving Glenn Beck but it couldn't be helped. To Beck's credit, he has been very outspoken in support of Israel defending itself against the flotilla of thugs that attempted to break Israel's blockade. A prominent politician in Europe - Geert Wilders - has been alone in his support of Israel within the political leadership of the Netherlands. This is significant because Glenn Beck implied back in March that Wilders might be put in power by fascists.

As I wrote at the time, Beck - for all the good he does - was very unfair to Wilders. Dutch News is now reporting that Wilders is not only an outspoken supporter of Israel's handling of the flotilla but that he's alone in doing so:
MPs from across the political spectrum, even those traditionally supportive of Israel, have said they were shocked by Israel's actions.

'Everything points to the fact that it is not right what Israel has done,' the Volkskrant reports VVD MP Atzo Nicolai as saying. Unless Israel comes up with a convincing story, an international inquiry will be unavoidable, he said.

However, PVV MP Geert Wilders said it is 'cheap' to attack Israel. 'I am certainly not going to make a cheap attack on Israel by howling in the woods with the rest of the wolves,' he told tv show Nova.

Israel was fully justified in entering the ships to see if they were also carrying weapons, he said.
The foreign affairs minister went so far as to say he wants the Israeli ambassador to appear in The Hague to answer questions.

Again, Beck does far more good than anyone else in television these days but when he's wrong, he should be corrected. Given his position on Israel lately, it is time for him to stand with Geert Wilders. To refresh your memory, here is Beck talking about Wilders back in March.


I really don't know what to think of this. On one hand, It was refreshing to see Glenn Beck start to identify the Islamic enemies of the United States. On the other hand, I'm still trying to sift through the inconsistency. While illustrating the point that Israel has a right to be skittish when flotillas of thugs bent on destroying them get close, Beck compared the reason for Israel's blockade with the same thing that caused Rudy Giuliani to turn down a check from Saudi Prince Alwaleed bin Talal after 9/11.

It's an extremely fair point and a legitimate comparison. The only problem is that bin Talal is the second largest shareholder of the parent company of Fox News, which is who Beck works for. If Beck wants to use his platform to expose Talal, I guess that might be considered a greater good but if he doesn't, there might be a degree of perceived hypocrisy as Beck takes money from the same company that does business with the same Saudi prince he exposed as - at least mildly - someone who sanctioned 9/11.

Fort Hood gunman Nidal Malik Hasan's religiously inspired shooting spree last year led to revelations that he had contact with al-Qaeda cleric Anwar al-Awlaki via email on multiple occasions. The cleric also had ties to the 9/11 hijackers as well as the would be Christmas Day bomber Umar Farouk Abdul Mutallab and failed Times Square bomber Faisal Shahzad. Now we learn that another Texas man communicated via email with al-Awlaki and has been indicted in Houston.

Via Main Justice:
Another U.S. citizen who communicated with al-Qaeda propagandist Anwar al-Awlaki has been charged in federal court, the Justice Department said Thursday.

A federal grand jury in Houston indicted Barry Walter Bujol Jr., 29, for attempting to provide material support to an affiliate of al-Qaeda known as al-Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula. Bujol also was charged with aggravated identity theft, according to the Justice Department.

Bujol was arrested on May 30 after he boarded a ship at a port in the Houston area prepared to travel overseas to fight jihad, the Justice Department said.

Bujol, of Hempstead, Texas, first came under investigation by the FBI Joint Terrorism Task Force in 2008, according to a DOJ news release.
The Denver Post reported back in December that an arrest warrant was issued for al-Awlaki on charges relating to passport fraud. He was allowed out of the country in 2002 after being briefly detained at JFK airport because the arrest warrant had been inexplicably withdrawn.

Not only does New Jersey Governor Chris Christie trump his earlier performance but he utterly shames his predecessors as being nothing short of cowards. In this clip, Christie outlines the only formula for defeating Community Organisms and Unions - standing up to them. When you see leaders like Christie and Arizona Governor Jan Brewer reach this level of being completely fed up, there is no turning back. In both cases, each has seemingly reached a point of no return. I could be wrong but I don't think so.

Watch as Christi stands up to the bully that is the Teachers Union. He even uses the perfect playground metaphor to do it. There are some very uncomfortable union leaders in New Jersey right now. Also take note of how this kind of truth almost rubs raw the sores of discontent - it's Alinsky anti-serum.

Click HERE for an earlier video of Christie railing on both the unions and singling out his predecessor, John Corzine.
