Be sure to see the photo Ann posted on the last page of the previous thread.

Too bad we have to be sensitive to the needs of the mosque builders. Treacher lists some catchy names for the bar none dare name:
"Turban Cowboy is a strong contender, but I gotta go with Suspicious Packages. I also came up with Dune Buggers, but that probably wouldn’t fly."

OK, they won't get financing from anyone this government deems to be part of a terrorist organization. That rules out the NRA, VFW, law enforcement officials from the state of Arizona.... How about the guys from Obama's phone banks in Hamas?

will they be taking donations from Joseph Stalin, Che Guevera, Mickey Mouse, Adolph Hitler or any of the hundreds of thousands of other on line Obama donors?

Thanks Frau for the tip on Ann's great photo post.

Pagar

Let me see if I understand this correctly, according to the report the standards for giving to this group will be much higher than the standards used for donations to the Obama campaign? I wonder if they will do any credit card verification?

On second thought, there is no use wondering since the Obama campaign had no standards, if the Muslims have them, they would have to be higher.

a couple of sharpies who just realized the property they bought will not be salable as condos and no one will invest in that business endeavor. In the end I think Mayor Bloomberg and the Dept of State are the patsies here--I do not see the Middle Western potentates kicking in lots of gold for such a badly conceived project and the state dept's decision to fund three trips to the ME for Imam Rauf is only slightly dumber than MO's decision to play royal in seedy but pricey Marbella.(Do you see a lot of princes deciding it would be a great idea to shell out big dough to create ill will ?)

AP:
HICAGO – Jurors in the corruption trial of former Gov. Rod Blagojevich have sent a note to the judge suggesting they may be deadlocked on some counts.
The note read in court on Wednesday says the jury is asking for guidance if they can't reach a unanimous decision on "any given count." They say they've made "a reasonable attempt" and did so without rancor.
Judge James B. Zagel says he'll send back a note asking the jury to clarify which counts they're undecided on.
Jurors are in their 11th day of trying to reach a verdict. Since they began deliberations, they've sent two previous notes to the judge.

O/T The summer heat which is afflicting everybody except DoT *does* have a beneficial side affect, at least in my neck of the woods. The peaches here are huge and very sweet. I've made a fruit salad the last couple nights with strawberries, grapes and peaches. Mrs Hate usually whines about the fuzz on peaches (but likes apricots; go figure) but they're so sweet and syrupy she didn't even register a low whimper. These are both from a local supermarket and a tiny orchard out in the sticks east of here that makes outstanding cider and the people are very friendly. The patriarch there told me that the last couple summers' cool evenings served to retard an essential part of the development of apples; I was talking with his son today about this should be a bumper crop for him and he responded that lacking something highly unusual like a huge hailstorm, the supply and quality should be very high and early. So at least some of my misery should have a rewarding ending.

Danube of Thought

That press report seems to leave open the possibility that they have reached unanimity on one or more counts. But it's a little ambiguous...

Super article here, re Jeffrey Goldberg's Atlantic piece: The Weak Case for War with Iran
"Jeffrey Goldberg's new article in the Atlantic is deeply reported -- and deeply wrong about the Middle East. But it's his misunderstanding of America that is most dangerous of all."

An aside: I was somehow under the impression that Ben Zion Netanyahu was the Israeli PM's uncle rather than his father. And by the way, I highly recommend Ben Zion Netanyahu's magnum opus--and I do mean magnum, unless I mean chef d'ouevre (h/t narciso).


Amid widespread skepticism that sanctions will stop Tehran's nuclear development and grudging, belated recognition that the Green Movement will not deliver a more pliable Iranian government, a growing number of commentators are asking the question, "What does President Obama do next on Iran?"

For hawks, the answer is war. Last month, in The Weekly Standard, Reuel Marc Gerecht made the case for an Israeli strike against Iranian nuclear targets. With the publication of Jeffrey Goldberg's "The Point of No Return" in the Atlantic, the campaign for war against Iran is now arguing that the United States should attack so Israel won't have to.

...

Goldberg's Israeli interlocutors readily acknowledge that the United States could mount a far more robust air campaign against Iranian nuclear targets than Israel could. A much more limited Israeli strike "may cause Iran to redouble its efforts-this time with a measure of international sympathy-to create a nuclear arsenal [and] cause chaos for America in the Middle East," he acknowledges. Goldberg believes the Obama administration understands that "perhaps the best way to obviate a military strike on Iran is to make the threat of a strike by the Americans seem real." But there is a clear implication that, if threat alone does not work, better for the United States to pull the trigger than Israel.

...

Goldberg's case for war on Iran starts with the Holocaust .... But, as Goldberg himself acknowledges, this is not true. He recounts his realization of the "contradiction" captured in a photograph of Israeli fighter planes flying over Auschwitz that he saw "in more than a dozen different offices" at Israel's defense ministry:

"... In other words, the creation of a serious Jewish military capability-a nuclear bomb, say, or the Israeli air force-during World War II would have meant a quicker end to the Holocaust. It is fair to say, then, that the existence of the Israeli air force, and of Israel's nuclear arsenal, means axiomatically that the Iranian nuclear program is not the equivalent of Auschwitz."

Moreover, the Islamic Republic is not Hitler's Germany, particularly regarding Jews. No matter how many anti-Zionist or even anti-Semitic quotes Gerecht, Goldberg, and others may marshal from Iranian politicians, inconvenient realities undermine the Islamic Republic/Third Reich analogy: Roughly 25,000-30,000 Jews continue living in Iran, with civil status equal to other Iranians and a constitutionally guaranteed parliamentary seat. It is illegal in the Islamic Republic for Muslims to consume alcohol --but Jews (and Christians) are permitted wine for religious ceremonies and personal consumption. Iranian politicians frequently question Israel's legitimacy and predict demographics will ultimately produce a "one-state" solution in Palestine. It's true that Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad has made provocative statements questioning the Holocaust. But neither Ahmadinejad nor any other Iranian leader has threatened to destroy Israel by initiating military conflict.

Fixating on Ahmadinejad's rhetoric obscures the fact that normalized U.S.-Iranian relations would profoundly benefit Israel -- just as Henry Kissinger's engagement with Egyptian President Anwar Sadat in the 1970s decisively changed regional dynamics to preclude any possibility of another generalized Arab-Israeli war. It is only in retrospect that Sadat -- an open admirer of Hitler who worked with Germany against Britain during World War II and not only made vicious anti-Israeli and anti-Semitic statements but launched a war that killed and injured thousands of Israelis -- is depicted as a "man of peace."

...

But Goldberg's reporting on his conversations with Israeli generals, national-security policymakers, and politicians makes clear that, in fact, those at the top of Israel's political order understand Iran's nuclear program is not an "existential threat." His interlocutors recognize Iran is unlikely to invite its own destruction by attacking Israel directly. Rather, they say, a nuclear Iran "will progressively undermine [Israel's] ability to retain its most creative and productive citizens," according to Defense Minister Ehud Barak.

"The real threat to Zionism is the dilution of quality," Barak tells Goldberg. "Jews know that they can land on their feet in any corner of the world. The real test for us is to make Israel such an attractive place, such a cutting-edge place in human society, education, culture, science, quality of life, that even American Jewish young people want to come here ... Our young people can consciously decide to go other places [and] stay out of here by choice."

...

Netanyahu himself admits that the challenges posed by a nuclear Iran "are more subtle than a direct attack," noting that "you'd create a sea change in the balance of power in our area." This is another major point in the Israeli case for war that deserves unpacking -- and debunking. Goldberg points out that "Persian and Jewish civilizations have not forever been enemies." In fact, the Islamic Republic and Israel have not forever been enemies. During the Iran-Iraq war, Israel -- over Washington's objections -- sold weapons to Iran, and was involved in U.S. President Ronald Reagan's subsequent outreach to Tehran (which imploded in the Iran-Contra scandal).

However, Israeli-Iranian geopolitical dynamics changed with the Cold War's end, the Soviet Union's collapse, and the removal of Iraq's military as a factor in the regional balance of power through the first Gulf War. Since then, Israel has deemed Iran its principal rival for regional hegemony -- and the Islamic Republic views what it sees as Israel's hegemonic ambitions as threatening its vital interests.

Israeli elites want to preserve a regional balance of power strongly tilted in Israel's favor and what an Israeli general described to Goldberg as "freedom of action" --the freedom to use force unilaterally, anytime, for whatever purpose Israel wants. The problem with Iranian nuclear capability -- not just weapons, but capability -- is that it might begin constraining Israel's currently unconstrained "freedom of action." In May, retired Israeli military officers, diplomats, and intelligence officials conducted a war game that assumed Iran had acquired "nuclear weapons capability." Participants subsequently told Reuters that such capability does not pose an "existential threat" to Israel -- but "would blunt Israel's military autonomy."

One may appreciate Israel's desire to maximize its military autonomy. But, in an already conflicted region, Israel's assertion of military hegemony is itself a significant contributor to instability and the risk of conflict. Certainly, maximizing Israel's freedom of unilateral military initiative is not a valid rationale for the United States to start a war with Iran. Just imagine how Obama would explain such reasoning to the American people.

Wisconsin Senate: Johnson (R) 47%, Feingold (D) 46%
Rasmussen Reports ^ | August 11, 2010

Posted on Wed 11 Aug 2010 05:44:12 PM CST by Clintonfatigued

Incumbent Democrat Russ Feingold and his top Republican challenger, Ron Johnson, are essentially tied again this month in Wisconsin’s U.S. Senate race.

The latest Rasmussen Reports telephone survey of Likely Wisconsin Voters shows Johnson with 47% support and Feingold picking up 46% of the vote. Two percent (2%) prefer another candidate, and five percent (5%) are undecided.

Late last month, Johnson held a 48% to 46% lead, and two weeks prior to that was ahead 47% to 46%. In fact, this is the fifth survey since May in which Feingold’s support has remained at 46%. He was reelected in 2004 with 55% of the vote.

Don't know about anybody else but as a Californian I have a Jerry Moonbeam Brown campaign ad flashing away in my upper left margin.
He flashes a picture of Cheney and then Meg Whitman and says "don't let Meg Whitman bring Bush economics to California".

I'm not sure where to start to criticize something that profoundly stupid.
As much as I've criticized Bush, I'd gladly punch Jerry right in the nose for a little of that good old Bush economics right about now.
Hold it. I'd gladly punch Jerry in the nose simply for the pleasure of it, so that's no test.
Well, I'd gladly kick him in the nuts...oh wait a minute.

The fruit here is especially delicious his summer, too..esp. the white peaches.

Tonight' first course was an Andalusian gazpacho that was really wonderful. The recipe is available online at the La Tienda website. It's the way I like it--with the crunchy veggies (red onion, cukes and peppers) served on the side and the soup essentially a cold mixture of stale bread, fresh peeled tomatoes,some peppers, pureed garlic, salt, pepper, sherry vinegar and olive oil.

Here's Bobbie Flay's White Peach Sangria recipe:


ngredients
1 bottle white wine (Spanish table wine)
3 ounces brandy
2 ounces triple sec
1 cup orange juice
1 cup pineapple juice
2 ounces simple syrup (equal parts sugar and water brought to a boil for 2 minutes in a small saucepan) and cooled (leftover syrup can be stored in a tightly sealed container in the refrigerator for 1 month)
3 ounces white peach puree (peel peaches, remove pit and puree in a blender with a small amount of water)
Fresh peaches, oranges, and apples sliced
Directions
Place all ingredients in a pitcher and stir to mix. Refrigerate at least 8 hours or up to 48 hours. Serve over ice.

It's quite open here. I recall for example a young man who worked for Santorum who was well-informed of the aide's background. During his last campaign for the Senate, it was the left who "outed" the young man and Santorum who said he knew all about it when he hired him, valued the man's contribution and had no notion of removing him from his position.

Odd, all the "outings"--like this man and Foley, for example---that I know of involving political figures were of conservatives who were "outed" by the left in the thought that would wound them. Disgusting really, bubu.

Ignatz

--Care to name names, by the way, or are you willing to acknowledge that no conservative politician can afford to endure the homophobia of identity conservatives?--

Seems to me it's the left who out them and then denigrate and smear them.

Up the triple sec to 4 oz, chop the brandy to 1 oz, use mashed fruit, instead of the juice, but you must include Persian Limes (aka regular limes) in the mix. And cut the syrup altogether (too much work). Fridge it, Covered with Saran til chilled, tops 2 hrs. (Sometimes the mix worked better 2 oz and 2 oz, it depended on the wine).

To "leaden" the mix, add good, but cheap white, or tawny, port, say 1 oz., no more than 2.

Early Vino Verte seems to work best, but I like it red, with a big, honkin Ribiero Del Duero, if making it for friends.

A couple of pitchers in the fridge, pre-made works best if it's the sole beverage, if not, have the premashed fruit in baggies in the fridge, ready to go.

And if there are those worried about the amount of alcohol, turn it into spritzers (add club soda), really refreshing.
