Gates of Vienna News Feed 3/19/2011The NATO attack on Libya began with bombing strikes carried out by French warplanes, with American cruise missiles and Tomahawk missiles launched shortly afterwards against Libya’s air defenses. Col. Mommar Kadafy remains defiant, and has vowed to retaliate by releasing a flood of immigrants across the Mediterranean into Europe. He says the ceasefire is now canceled, and has renewed his offensive against Benghazi and other rebel strongholds. President Obama says that America’s role in this war will be limited, and that other countries will be in the lead.

Meanwhile, the situation at the Fukushima nuclear plant in Japan seems to be improving. Power has been restored to two of the reactors, and plant workers are hoping to reconnect electric lines to the other four. The spent fuel rods are being drenched by water canons, some of them operated robotically, others by humans using fire engines. Although radiation has been discovered in some food products in the area of the plant, the level is negligible. Readings near the plant show occasional spikes, but overall the radiation level has dropped slightly.

  1. Quote:
    Businessman Herman Cain, a possible Republican presidential candidate in 2012, has criticized Barack Obama for disregarding America’s Christian heritage, stating he believes the president’s repeated omission of the phrase “endowed by their Creator” is “intentional.”
    end quote.

    I think there’s something to this.
    The Declaration puts the source of human rights in God, or the creator. The issue of rights is between God and the human being, not between the citizen and government.
    To scrub the phrase and to try to suppress this idea is to give people the impression that the government gives them their rights.
    In other words, it indicates a citizenship as clientage approach, which is quite unAmerican.

  2. The Rivkin Project: How Globalism Uses Multiculturalism to Subvert Sovereign Nations

    by Dr. K R Bolton

    During October 19-22, 2010, Charles Rivkin, US Ambassador to France, invited a 29-member delegation from the Pacific Council on International Policy (PCIP) to a conference in France, the stated purpose of which was to discuss Arab and Islamic relations in the country.[1] The meeting was part of a far-reaching subversive agenda to transform that entire character of France and in particular the consciousness of French youth, which includes the use of France’s Muslim youth in a typically manipulative globalist strategy behind the usual façade of “human rights” and “equality.”
