USA TODAY - Emergency workers and community members in eastern Missouri are not sure what to make of a mystery priest who showed up at a critical accident scene Sunday morning and whose prayer seemed to change life-threatening events for the positive.

Even odder, the black-garbed priest does not appear in any of the nearly 70 photos of the scene of the accident in which a 19-year-old girl almost died. No one knows the priest and he vanished without a word, said Raymond Reed, fire chief of New London, Mo.

“I think it’s a miracle,” Reed said. “I would say whether it was an angel that was sent to us in the form of a priest or a priest that became our angel, I don’t know. Either way, I’m good with it.”

Falsehood, like poison, will generally be rejected when administered alone; but when blended with wholesome ingredients, may be swallowed unperceived —Richard Whately

Dear Friend,

Almost 12 years ago when our government was beating the drums of war, we declared CODEPINK for peace. Today, that same fear is continuously instilled in us, with new terrorist threats surfacing, citizens constantly being surveilled, embassies closing around the world, and more innocent civilians being slaughtered by US drone strikes-- all in the name of national security. Here at CODEPINK we’ve come up with a list of 10 ways to break the cycle of fear and war:

1. Declare a moratorium on drone strikes.
2. Close the US drone base in Saudi Arabia.
3. Free the 86 Guantanamo prisoners cleared for release.
4. Apologize and compensate innocent victims of US attacks.
5. Go for the “zero option” in Afghanistan: withdraw all US troops.
6. Pursue diplomacy.
7. Stop supporting dictatorships and repressive militaries.
8. Support non-violent civil society movements.
9. Adhere to the international rule of law.
10. Spend foreign aid money on education, healthcare and lifting people out of poverty

I'm sort of grateful that I am still able to be astounded by the depth and breadth of Demobomunist  mendacity and calumniations. I can still take a punch.

 It's hard knowing when to stop though, isn't it?  I mean, eventually you'll always tip your hand about being  mindless, useful idiots

I'm thinking of all the people struggling to be offended by this.  Some will find a way.

 When Ian Cheney and his best friend Curt Ellis graduated from college they thought they were done with professors and they supposed to feel like they had their whole lives ahead of them, but they just heard some rather disconcerting news. Some day they were going to die, and maybe sooner than they thought. For the first time in American history their generation was at risk of having a shorter lifespan than their parents. And it was because of what they ate. (Full into)

I'm surprised I watched this 90 minute documentary.  Didn't plan on watching more than enough to get pissed off by whiny moralizers.  But the two dudes are highly likable, and their film is, well, more or less a film about other Res Ipsa Loquitorlikable people in Iowa and Colorado.  In other words, a fun indulgence, and kind of nostalgic.  Have you ever run through rows of corn?  You know that semll of green and dirt?  I smelled it.

I'm not going to jump on any bandwagons here about farming, or farm subsidies, or diet—although I did learn some surprising things about them.  No, if I was gonna go on a crusade, I'd be talking about about Monsanto Chemical here. 

Anyway, I don't even have a bitch about corn subsidies, which because of Agriculture Sec. Earl Butz went from us paying farmers for not growing anything, to enticing them to grow as much as possible.  Yes, the farmers still make out because of gummint subsidies,  which is why they continue.  But corn is the cornerstone to a giant American manufacturing economy, and I'm for that (even if I don't like some of what it's used for). 

Anyway, I done led you to water, er corn field.  Cob is in your court.  You're welcome.

Obama, Biden and Kerry walk into a war ...

Okay.  I Probably Sold Obama Short ...

   “The threat is much smaller in terms of al Qaeda returning,” Kerry said on the plane. But, he added, “in undoing what you’ve done, you do Res Ipsa Loquitorhave to be thoughtful about not creating chaos and losing what you’ve gained.”  

Of course, if the Taliban agreed to lay down its arms in exchange for a share of power, Afghanistan would no longer need to defend itself. That was a major reason that both Kerry and Obama had begun speaking less about military success in Afghanistan and more about reaching a political deal.(NYT)
I'm willing to swallow pride and admit that President Obama has exceeded my expectations.  After both Biden and Kerry began Pox Obama in 2009,  by insulting  Afghan President Karzai—by telling him he was corrupt (although the irony was delicious), for starters—I gave him a year to squander all of the Bush success in  reducing the Taliban to invisible, and utterly destroying  al-Queda's infrastructure. 

 It took him four years to take  the world back to Ground Zero.   Sorry.

Al Qaeda Flag Flies High Above Christian Churches

With the ouster of Muhammad Morsi, Egypt’s Islamists have finally gotten the pretext they need to cleanse the nation of its Christian minority, the Copt’s—ironically, Egypt’s most native sons.

  The unprecedented hate currently being visited on them is fueled by Islam’s “How Dare You?” phenomenon: As conquered non-Muslims, Christians must live as dhimmis, that is, according to traditional Islamic teaching, barely tolerated “infidels” who must be humble and submissive—to the point that they are not permitted to raise their hands to Muslims even when attacked.  (Pictured -Beheaded in Sinai for being Christian: remains of Magdy Lam‘i Habib)

Let us not forget that it was Obama who engineered the Arab Spring uprising that installed Morsi and the Muslim Brotherhood (now our ally in Syria!!).   And this, one of a current spate of HFS! stories out there. .


World War III? is an interesting take on the closing of our embassies in North Africa and the Middle East?  Fay Voshell, writing in The American Thinker, thinks it may be more important than just a coordinated terror attack.  It could be we have been told by Israel that they will be attacking Iran shortly.  I hope so.
