For some reason, as I watched this, I couldn't help wondering if Olbermann was short-circuiting. Olbermann gets a lot of flak for not interviewing opposition guests; in some weird way, this was almost better. Not only does Alvin Greene come across as totally unqualified but Olbmermann looks ridiculous because Greene represents the ideological left that Olbermann so vociferously defends.

The exchange is almost five minutes long but it's worth watching every single second. Greene is so unqualified as South Carolina's Democratic candidate for Senate that Minority Whip, James Clyburn has a problem with it. The accusation being floated by the left is that Greene is a Republican plant.

Has anyone stopped and wondered if the power of the Community Organisms is responsible for Greene's rise? Just sayin...

As I was traveling on I20 late Thursday night, I caught the audio of this episode of Glenn Beck on Sirius. As I heard him refer to Larry Grathwohl and then play the two minute video clip from 1982 of the only man to successfully infiltrate the Weather Underground, a Bruce Willis line from 'Die Hard' came to mind:


Don't get me wrong. I'm thrilled that Glenn Beck discovered this video of Grathwohol. However, it was making the rounds on the internet before the 2008 elections. In fact, a link to the video was presented to Bill O'Reilly's producers. Though O'Reilly proceeded to interview Grathwohl in October of 2008, he never once asked Grathwohl about the shocking claims he made on the 1982 video. Instead, it was the usual questions about Bill Ayers being an unrepentant terrorist.

I have one question for Bill O'Reilly. Why didn't you uncover then what Beck is uncovering now? The photo of Grathwohl that Beck uses at the beginning of this clip is a still shot of Grathwohl's appearance on O'Reilly before the 2008 election. It was quite uneventful not because Grathwohl had nothing to offer but because O'Reilly avoided an extremely important story.

Better late than never, I guess...


As I watched the saga between Arizona Governor Jan Brewer and Barack Obama unfold, I began thinking of how similarly Obama tried to bully Honduras last year when it constitutionally removed would-be dictator Manuel Zelaya from office. Obama called it an 'illegal coup'. The problem for Obama was that interim president Roberto Micheletti never backed down......and won.

via WND:
When Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer signed S.B.1070, giving police in her state the authority to arrest people who could not prove they were in the country legally, her state became a target of Barack Obama before the ink was dry. It wasn't the first time Obama called on his mastery of Saul Alinsky to deal with a government that did something he vehemently opposed. On June 28, 2009, the government of Honduras forcibly removed its president, Manuel Zelaya, who was attempting to discard that country's constitution by ensuring a lifetime appointment as president through referendum. The ensuing interim government became an Obama target as well.

One of Alinsky's rules Obama learned well was to "pick the target, freeze it, personalize it and polarize it." It is a tactic of intimidation designed to break an opponent's will. The target's reaction is critical. If the target is not intimidated, the tactic fails. To this point, Brewer is not backing down; she has shown no signs of blinking despite Obama's public statement that he would direct Eric Holder's Justice Department to look into possible legal action against Arizona. Then came the protests and boycotts, designed to demonize one of America's 50 states as racist.

Alinsky would be proud – but the target, Brewer, still wasn't backing down. It was time to ratchet up the pressure by going outside the United States for allies. Assistant Secretary of State Michael Posner, while meeting with Chinese officials to discuss human rights, admitted to bringing up the newly signed Arizona law as an example of such a violation in his own country. Arizona was soon being alienated and polarized by the Obama administration on an international stage.
I hope you Read it All.


This is among the most bizarre stories of this short century. On its face, you may say we're only 10 years in so it's not that bold of a claim. Uh, have you been paying attention these past 10 years? I rest my case. Alvin Greene has somehow won the Democratic nomination for Senate in South Carolina.

After he won, people began taking a closer look at him and found a pending felony charge relative to pornography in his file. On June 11th, Fox News' Sheppard Smith interviewed the young lady Greene allegedly presented 'porn' to and it's one of those interviews you don't want to miss. I had the good fortune of seeing it with relatives and we looked at each other throughout just to make sure our eyes weren't deceiving us.

Just so you can get more Greene, take a look at this interview at his home. Greene ran on a military record but couldn't produce any photos of himself in uniform to the interviewer. This story is getting VERRRY INTERESTING.

It's really not all that difficult to understand why Saudi Arabia would allow Israeli jets to cross its airspace in an attack on Iran's nuclear facilities. Although, at first glance, it would probably warrant a cocked eyebrow. It has nothing to do with Saudi Arabia suddenly liking Israel but it has a lot to do with Saudi Arabia fearing Iran going nuclear.

Times Online reports:
Saudi Arabia has conducted tests to stand down its air defences to enable Israeli jets to make a bombing raid on Iran’s nuclear facilities, The Times can reveal.

In the week that the UN Security Council imposed a new round of sanctions on Tehran, defence sources in the Gulf say that Riyadh has agreed to allow Israel to use a narrow corridor of its airspace in the north of the country to shorten the distance for a bombing run on Iran.
A little later in the article, a former member of Israeli intelligence was quoted:
Questioned on the option of a Saudi flight path for Israeli bombers, Aharaon Zeevi Farkash, who headed military intelligence until 2006 and has been involved in war games simulating a strike on Iran, said: “I know that Saudi Arabia is even more afraid than Israel of an Iranian nuclear capacity.”
In addition to Saudi Arabia being ruled by the Sunni sect of Islam and Iran's mullah's being of the Shiite persuasion, Iran has long viewed Saudi Arabia as a sellout to the west. Isn't it something that nations who have utter contempt for Jews don't seem to have a problem asking for their help when necessary?

Wars are full of surprises. It's possible that one of those surprises might include Iran placing Saudi Arabia #1 on its hit list above Israel, a projection that former Muslim terrorist Walid Shoebat has been putting forth for quite some time.

President Barack Obama's ties to Islam are with the Sunni Muslims. That is likely a contributing factor to his bowing to the Saudi prince. If Saudi Arabia is willing to help Israel in its fight with Iran, wouldn't one think Obama might be as well?

Curiously though, the Weekly Standard is reporting that the Obama Administration is backing a U.N. investigation of Israel over the Memorial Day flotilla incident involving Hamas, Free Gaza Movement, the IHH, and Turkey.
THE WEEKLY STANDARD has learned that senior Obama administration officials have been telling foreign governments that the administration intends to support an effort next week at the United Nations to set up an independent commission, under UN auspices, to investigate Israel's behavior in the Gaza flotilla incident.
Israel is already a tiny country facing long odds, surrounded by countries that want it extinguished. The last thing it needs is more international pressure applied to it. Saudi Arabia wants to help them - presumably, so would the Obama administration - in a possible confrontation with Iran. If so, why would Obama want to put even more pressure on Israel in its defense of groups and entities that have the sympathy and endorsement of Iran?

Turkey and Iran appear to be aligning; Iran has been helping Hamas for years; one would think the White House would be laying off of Israel over this one because of the situation with Iran.
