National interest has gone missing in USA and Israel

Lawrence Davidson argues that the power of Zionist lobbies in the United States and real-estate ideologues in Israel mean that war and expansionism will always take precedence over the national interest in both countries.

"The explanation given here helps us to understand why [Syrian President] Bashar Asad can knock at Israel’s locked door and no one in that country will bother to open it. It also helps us understand why Obama and Clinton turned their backs on the Turkish and Brazilian efforts to negotiate a deal with Iran. Both are reacting to the power and influence of domestic special interests. Compared to these interests, the "national interest" does not stand a chance."

Got an iPhone 4? You may need duct tape

In a controlled test, Consumer Reports found that people who hold the iPhone 4 in a way that covers up an antenna connector on the phone's lower left side will experience poorer reception and possibly dropped calls.

But if you slap a piece of duct tape over that antenna connection, the reception problems go away, the group says.

"When your finger or hand touches a spot on the phone's lower left side -- an easy thing, especially for lefties -- the signal can significantly degrade enough to cause you to lose your connection altogether if you're in an area with a weak signal," Consumer Reports says.

"Due to this problem, we can't recommend the iPhone 4."

BP say they are close to capping the Deepwater Horizon oil well in the Gulf of Mexico
A new, tighter cap is being placed on top of BP's blown-out oil well in the Gulf of Mexico. It is not yet known whether it will be enough to finally stop crude from gushing into the Gulf

The fearless extreme sportswoman has swum over 100 times with the creatures in an artificial reef created by the sinking of two copper dredgers.

Able to hold her breath for five minutes, Miss Futral had no experience of sea diving before she began her steep learning curve in free-diving three years. But she can now confidently swim with sharks that grow to four yards long.

BP claims ‘Top Hat 10? could completely stop oil gusher

Hours after BP fitted a new containment cap to a damaged well at the bottom of the Gulf of Mexico, the gushing oil and gas appeared to completely stop, according to images relayed from a live video from the sea floor. Oil was once again jetting from the well a moment later as the company continued testing pressure seals on the "Top Hat 10" cap.

BP representatives said it would take between six and 48 hours to determine if the new well cap will work. The company has said the cap could effectively contain the massive spill, which has only been growing since the Deepwater Horizon drilling platform exploded and sank on April 22

Two sets of standards

Poor 'holocaust' and Charlie Manson 'victim' Roman Polanski won't be extradited back to the U.S. for drugging and raping a child. He's suffered enough and it happened so many years ago said fellow pervert Woody Allen.

Certain Hollywood insiders must be ecstatic that they may be able to make a few more bucks off this sorry ass and his sorry ass films.

Meanwhile, Mel Gibson gets set up, runs his mouth again and Hollywood turns mean.

He could face a year in jail for misdemeanor batter or "the courts could upgrade the charge to assault with enhancement of great bodily injury," "The maximum penalty for that is four years behind bars in a state prison, and the D.A.'s office almost always seeks state prison under those charges."

A Banana Republic Ripe for a Coup d'état

The coup d'état of the Republic has long ago taken place. The rule by banana republic potentates is the disposition of governance in the Disunited States. You may not like Steele’s politics, but you should defend his right to defend himself and demand real due process of law. The reality is that anyone can be targeted for extinction by a corrupt government. The tree of liberty bears nourishing fruit only when the lifeblood of genuine Patriots are willing to confront tyrants and combat dictatorial government. America does not need another insider coup. It calls out for a second American Revolution.

Obama: 'I Have Met Israel and It Is "Us"'

Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu set up another illegal Jewish settlement, this time on the White House lawn. And, it appears, President Obama has agreed to serve as its armed guard.

So complete was Obama’s identification with Israel yesterday that he actually referred to Israel as “us” before correcting himself:

“We strongly believe that, given its size, its history, the region that it’s in, and the threats that are leveled against us—against it, that Israel has unique security requirements.”
