The Jews: Don’t Lay the Plame on Me. By Jim geraghty
Excerpt: If Valerie Plame always had a certain interest in anti-Semitic conspiracy theories, it would explain a few things, wouldn’t it? Thursday’s controversy began with former CIA employee Plame tweeting out a link to an article headlined, “America’s Jews Are Driving America’s Wars.” The article’s sub-headline asked, “Shouldn’t they recuse themselves when dealing with the Middle East?” (Got that? If you are a particular religion, you should not deal with Middle East policy at all, because your religion will automatically skew your judgment. Good thing Christianity and Islam don’t have any ties to the Middle East, right? I guess the author would prefer that U.S. foreign policy in the region was managed by Scientologists.) UP NEXT 5 Reasons why Single-Payer is a Bad Idea 00:28 01:30 Powered by The article — which I won’t link to, go find it yourself — was pretty explicit in the insistence that Jews couldn’t be trusted to work on American foreign policy:

The Navy – It’s Not a Job, It’s a Total Cluster. By Ray Starmann, Editor in Chief at US Defense Watch
Excerpt: The US Navy, the mighty and heroic service that beat the tar out of America’s enemies for 240 years; the force that won brilliant victories at Midway, Manila Bay, Leyte Gulf, Lake Erie and a thousand other places is no more. The US Navy that refused to surrender and ‘had not begun to fight’ under the leadership of John Paul Jones, is now too incompetent to fight anyone; and every American should be seriously concerned. To paraphrase Oliver Perry, “We have met the enemy and it is cultural Marxism and social engineering.” The latest debacle to engulf the Navy was reported yesterday in a myriad of media outlets, including US Defense Watch. According to Fox News: The majority of ships operating in the U.S. Navy’s Seventh Fleet, where two destroyers have been involved in fatal collisions since June, weren’t certified to conduct basic operations at sea related to war-fighting, according to U.S. Navy records. As of late June, eight of the 11 cruisers and destroyers in the Seventh Fleet, and their crew members, weren’t certified by the U.S. Navy to conduct “mobility seamanship,” or basic steering of the ship, according to U.S. Navy records provided to two House Armed Services subcommittees. (An article I hate to read and pass on. But it's on point, and should be seen by every voting American. If PC insanity is not dialled way back in our military, our actual capacity to take on anyone, anywhere, will continue to plummet. And in this world, we simply cannot afford that. --Del)

It looks like Obama did spy on Trump just as he did to me
campaign/351495-it-looks-like- obama-did-spy-on-trump-just- as-he-did-to-me Excerpt: According to media reports this week, the FBI did indeed “wiretap” the former head of Trump’s campaign, Paul Manafort, both before and after Trump was elected. If Trump officials — or Trump himself — communicated with Manafort during the wiretaps, they would have been recorded, too. But we’re missing the bigger story. If these reports are accurate, it means U.S. intelligence agencies secretly surveilled at least a half dozen Trump associates. And those are just the ones we know about. [Note that this item is sourced from The Hill, not exactly a right-leaning outlet. When Attkisson’s computer hack was acknowledged by CBS, it was a really big deal for those on both sides of the political divide. For about an hour. By then, it was plain that Attkisson’s politics were neither leftist enough for the left NOR rightist enough for the right. The media buried the story, and few cared enough to pay much attention. Her suit remains in court at this time, though summary dismissal has been denied. This is an important issue. Any tactic that can be used by either side can–and will–be used against the other at some future time. It is in everyone’s interest that these abuses be stopped and punished severely, lest they become routine. Link may not be live. Ron P.]

Danish government on Muslim migrant crime: “Worst situation since 2nd World War”
Excerpt: The rule of law is imploding in Denmark as “low-tech jihad” and migrant gangs take over the streets. The Danish government should not be surprised. But it appears to be. Thousands of incidents involving loosened wheel bolts on cars, large rocks or cinder blocks thrown from highway overpasses, and thin steel wires strung across bicycle paths meant to decapitate unsuspecting cyclists, is spreading a growing sense of horror among the Danes. In almost all cases, the perpetrators have turned out to be from MENAP countries (Middle East, North Africa, Pakistan). In the latest development of what has been characterized as “massive low-tech jihad,” gangs of migrants and refugees of Arab or North African descent are now shooting innocent people at random in the capital city of Copenhagen, placing in danger the lives of both locals and visitors to this popular tourist city.

DUMB: BLM Activist Shaun King Accuses Philadelphia Eagles of Racism for Refusing to Sign Kaepernick
Excerpt: Once again, the problem for Mr. King is his lack of understanding that professional football is a business with a customer base known as the general public. This includes some people who are sympathetic to Black Lives Matter protestors, and others who aren’t. In reality, no one has deprived Colin Kaepernick of his First Amendment rights to free speech. At the same time, no business has an obligation to hire and pay someone millions of dollars for the privilege of potentially angering millions of their customer base and potentially causing themselves financial harm. People also seem to forget that Kaepernick was under contract. He got greedy and opted out, gambling he’d make more money. He took the risk, and should have known the reward was not guaranteed. The problem for a player like Kaepernick is that football is a team game where the quarterback manages the offense, but that doesn’t always make him the best player on the team.
London Bombing: Parsons Green terror suspect (18) was arrested by chance as he tried to flee the country
Excerpt: The teenager is thought to have arrived in Britain three-years ago as an orphan refugee, who had travelled across Europe to get to the so-called Jungle camp at Calais. As an unaccompanied child he was allowed entry to the UK and after being processed through a migrant centre in Kent, was found a home with a foster family in Sunbury on Thames.

No Good Options in North Korea?
Excerpt: First, rising missiles in their boost phase are easiest to detect and destroy. During boost phase, missiles are moving at their slowest velocity, making them easier to shoot down. They also burn more fuel at this point in their trajectory, giving them their hottest infrared signature and making them easier to detect at long range. In addition, missiles in boost phase cannot employ evasive maneuvers or deploy multiple independently targetable reentry vehicles (or MIRVs) — unlike descending ICBMs in terminal phase. ... Fortunately, the technology for developing a purely kinetic space-based system — the so-called Brilliant Pebbles system — has been available since the early 1990s. [Hot diggitty damn! Somebody remembers the stuff we were talking about in the 80s: a MORAL defensive solution to incoming missile threats that has NO CONCEIVABLE OFFENSIVE USE. Of course, it would be opposed by every leftist because they don’t WANT us to be defended; so they’ll claim a purely defensive thing is “destabilizing” and therefore actually an offensive weapon. That largely worked in the 80s. But, there is now a clearly certifiable mad man running North Korea claiming he has nukes. And, our cost to do this is minuscule compared with even one near-miss by a nuke. The speed with which it could be done is also impressive. If the South Koreans and Japanese are really smart, they might well build this on their own; they can afford it and the equipment is largely off-the-shelf. Wouldn’t THAT poke a stick into the eye of any potential aggressor nation? Link above may not be live. Ron P.]

Police Violence against Black Men Is Rare
Excerpt: This narrative is false. In reality, a randomly selected black man is overwhelmingly unlikely to be victim of police violence — and though white men experience such violence even less often, the disparity is consistent with the racial gap in violent crime, suggesting that the role of racial bias is small. The media’s acceptance of the false narrative poisons the relations between law enforcement and black communities throughout the country and results in violent protests that destroy property and sometimes even claim lives. Perhaps even more importantly, the narrative distracts from far more serious problems that black Americans face.

JEWISH GROUPS DISAPPOINTED CHARGES WERE NOT LAID AGAINST TWO IMAMS
Excerpt: Jewish groups are disappointed that the Crown will not bring charges against two imams who made anti-Semitic statements, including a call for the death of Jews, in a Montreal mosque, due to the amount of time that’s passed. Wael al-Ghitawi and Sayed al-Ghitawi gave the contentious sermons at the Al-Andalous Islamic Centre in the St-Laurent borough of Montreal in 2014.

The president of the college invites some Black students to his home for a home cooked meal, and they are totally bent out of shape because a table decoration uses cotton blooms, and dinner includes corn bread, mac&cheese, and collard greens. Fairly typical Southern food, but they jump to the conclusion that he's tried to make "Black food' for them.... which is insulting.
When they asked him about why cotton, since it seems racist to them, his reply is that how can it be racist if we're all wearing it? They take this as a snide dismissal of their deep concerns.
So the college president holds a dinner at his home just for Black students, he and his wife eat with them, talk about their lives, go out of their way to be hospitable, and all that happens is they find ways to be upset about everything.
How in hell can anyone expect things to ever get better when this level of hypersensitivity has been created and seems to be growing?

Worth Reading: Okinawa: Remembering who we once were
Excerpt: I have walked a dozen battlefields, from Hastings and Normandy to Marathon and Moscow, but there was something especially savage about the fighting in the Pacific Theater of Operations during the Second World War. Read Alabama-born E.B. Sledge’s classic memoir With the Old Breed and you get a glimpse of one man’s personal horror on this and other islands. Only the fighting on the Eastern Front between Germany and the Soviet Union matched it in ferocity. And while Americans quite rightly celebrate Operation Overlord (more popularly known as “D-Day”) and the subsequent liberation of Europe, the Battle of Okinawa was similar in scale, longer in duration, and saw far more casualties, but, for some unknown reason, it remains obscure in the American mind. Consider it statistically. According to historian George Feifer, 22,000 tons of matériel were delivered to Iwo Jima daily during the heat of that battle. That is only 15 percent of the total necessary to sustain soldiers on Okinawa. Moreover, the invasion force consisted of 1,457 ships covering more than thirty square miles of ocean and involved roughly half a million men. In contrast to the cross-Channel Overload invasion, forces for “Operation Iceberg,” the codename for the Okinawa invasion, were deployed from bases in San Francisco—6,200 miles away—and Pearl Harbor—more than 4,000 miles away. It was an awesome feat of logistics. By the time the Battle of Okinawa was over, 14,000 American boys—and they were, mostly, boys—had made the ultimate sacrifice.

Worth Reading: Thinking the Unthinkable about Hurricanes.By Brian C. Joondeph
Excerpt: First, if global warming has been occurring for the past several decades, at least since Time and Newsweek warned us in the mid 1970s of the perils of the coming ice age, why are Harvey and Irma the first major hurricanes to hit the US since 2005? We should have been getting pounded each and every year with ever more severe hurricanes. Didn’t Al Gore tell us that Hurricane Katrina in 2005 was just the beginning? Why the 12-year hurricane drought? Second, if global warming is causing more superstorms, why is Hurricane Irma ranked only number seven in severity of storms to hit the US? The worst being in 1935, before SUVs existed and when air conditioners were a rare luxury. ... Suppose hurricanes happen for a different reason? What if there are benefits from hurricanes, a necessary part of the Earth’s ecosystem? Could hurricanes be Mother Nature’s way of driving the Earth through a high-pressure car wash? Despite the devastation caused by major hurricanes, these may be part of an ecosystem cycle, much in the way the National Park Service describes forest fires. Necessary and beneficial, despite their destruction.
