Iran responsible for 1998 U.S. embassy bombings By Marc A. Thiessen

It went virtually unnoticed (and unreported by this newspaper), but last week a federal court found the government of Iran liable for the 1998 bombings of the U.S. embassies in Kenya and Tanzania.

Wait, you say, wasn’t al-Qaeda was responsible for the embassy bombings?

Al-Qaeda carried out the attack, but the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia found that the bombings would not have been possible without “direct assistance” provided by Tehran, as well as Sudan. “The government of Iran,” Judge John D. Bates wrote in his 45-page decision, “aided, abetted and conspired with Hezbollah, Osama Bin Laden, and al Qaeda to launch large-scale bombing attacks against the United States by utilizing the sophisticated delivery mechanism of powerful suicide truck bombs.”

Iran’s assistance was not peripheral to the plot, Bates found. “Al Qaeda desired to replicate Hezbollah’s 1983 Beirut Marine barracks suicide bombing, …

It is a real shame – – -By T. Scott

Reading of the recent oubursts coming from so-called and self-appointed Black Spokespersons reminds me of many people that have passed through my life as most were of mild temperment and not liable to make rash and stupid observations. As for the elite among us like Morgan Freeman and other supposed luminaries who presume the right to lecture the rest of us believe that their mental processes are far better that are ours and they presume to lecture We The People when they truly know almost nothing about whatever subject is the topic of conversation.

Racist . That is a word that is repulsive to Americans. Americans abhor racial conflict and in truth, by uttering irresponsible diatribe, it is those who try to curry favor by openly injecting race into civil conversation who are the real racists as they throws race around, making it a weapon only they are allowed to use – unless, of course, you fail to include members The Congressional Black Caucus who are proving to be more racially extreme than any organized group in the history of this nation and have never shown the ability to provide constructive forward movement.

Confusing to all who have bothered to study the facts concerning the handling of racial integration in America is the truthful observation that it is the Democratic Party that has been most harmful to the integration process and that it is absolute fact that Republicans have been responsible for virtually all of the progressive Civil Rights legislation enacted over the years. – remember those Southern Democrat Governors barring school entrances – or those good old boys hiding under their sheets in the then solid Democrat South , burning crosses, throwing fire bombs and killing men just because they were black – but that is history and activists of today cannot be concerned with history….bending thoughts to suit an agenda – now, that is the way of the future.

History is a valuable tool to those who use it carefully. Those who ignore history, but pontificate as if they had all knowledge are the real racists among us as by their own irrational and inflammatory statements, they seem dedicated to create real racial problems. Perhaps, if our school systems did a better job equipping all Americans with the skills needed to hold jobs, all men and women would experience a feeling of pride in their own accomlishments and the race matter could then fall into history where it belongs as all would be known by their abilities and people of all colors, races and creeds would merit respect because of their acomplishments.

Tar and Feather Black Conservatives

“In Islamic countries, it’s not uncommon for Muslims to be tried and executed for the crime of apostasy. An apostate is a Muslim who converts to another religion. In our own country, although the punishment isn’t as severe, it mirrors the way that liberals tar and feather black conservatives. If those on the Left had the authority of Iran’s mullahs, would anyone be terribly surprised if they condemned the likes of Thomas Sowell, Allen West, Walter Williams, Condoleezza Rice and Herman Cain, for crimes against the party? To recognize how true that is, you merely have to acknowledge that liberals are always quick to label a black conservative an oreo, but when someone such as Barack Obama, who is literally half-and-half, comes along, the media never refers to him as any kind of cookie. … With the election now less than a year away, the only aspect of Obama’s presidency that I’ve approved of was his use of drones against jihadists in the Middle East. They’ve served as a pleasant change from the drones he usually relies on to fight his battles; namely, Harry Reid, Nancy Pelosi, Charles Schumer, Henry Waxman, Jay Carney and Debbie Wasserman-Schultz. The scary thing is that the military drones have been so effective, it might give Obama’s re-election team some nasty ideas. Therefore, my advice to the eventual Republican nominee would be to do most of his campaigning from the safety of a bomb shelter.” -columnist Burt Prelutsky
