UPDATE: And the Cover-Up begins? ~ BreakingNews Coast Guard retracts statement that initial blast occurred on oil platform that sank; says computer time-stamp problem led to confusion

The Deepwater Horizon rig, about 40 miles southeast of the mouth of the Mississippi River, burned for more than a day before sinking late Thursday morning.

NOTE: JUST putting the hypothesis out there, was it an attack?

A crew member from an oil platform that sank off the Louisiana coast Thursday reported an initial explosion three hours before the rig went up in flames in a second, larger explosion, the Coast Guard said.

Coast Guard Senior Chief Petty Officer Mike O’Berry told The Associated Press that according to their internal reports, the first blast was reported at 7 p.m. CDT Tuesday. Three hours later, the rig sent an emergency signal that’s “like a panic button,” he said.

At the same time, a nearby rig called to report the Deepwater Horizon was engulfed in flames, O’Berry said. The rig did not ask for help during the initial call, but the Coast Guard sent crews after the emergency signal came.

The Coast Guard is investigating what happened during that span.

“That three-hour window is obviously stuff being investigated — what happened during that time,” O’Berry said.

The company that owns the rig also was looking into it.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said Thursday she wouldn’t stand in the way of the Senate moving an immigration overhaul bill before it touches climate change legislation.

Excuse me while I kiss the sky…

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said Thursday she wouldn’t stand in the way of the Senate moving an immigration overhaul bill before it touches climate change legislation.

Members of the Congressional Hispanic Caucus are applying pressure to President Obama and Democratic leaders to move an immigration overhaul bill soon.

“If the Senate is ready with an immigration bill, we don’t want anybody holding it up for any reason,” Pelosi said. “Send it to us.”

But Carol Browner, Obama’s top environment adviser, said earlier in the week that she thought the climate change legislation was “doable.”

What remains to be seen is if Democrats can do both, especially after the intense health care overhaul has many lawmakers still reeling.

Still, Pelosi remained confident that lawmakers could move the climate change bill through the Senate. On Wednesday, the California Democrat said she looked forward to “working with the Senate” and getting a bill to the president’s desk.

FOX ~ WHY the secrecy?

The United States Air Force’s novel robotic X-37B space plane is tucked inside the bulbous nose cone of an unmanned rocket that blasted off Thursday from Florida on a mission shrouded in secrecy.

April 22, 2010: U.S. Air Force’s novel robotic X-37B space plane launches atop an Atlas 5 rocket from a seaside pad at the Cape Canaveral Air Force Station in Florida.

The United States Air Force’s novel robotic X-37B space plane space plane is tucked inside the bulbous nose cone of an unmanned rocket that blasted off Thursday evening from Florida on a mission shrouded in secrecy.

The spacecraft, called the Orbital Test Vehicle, was launched atop an Atlas 5 rocket from a seaside pad at the Cape Canaveral Air Force Station in Florida. But what it will actually do in space and when it will autonomously fly itself back down to Earth remain a mystery.

The Air Force would like to keep it that way. At least for now.

“Well, you can’t hide a space launch, so at some point extra security doesn’t do you any good,” said Gary Payton, Air Force deputy under secretary for space systems, in a Tuesday teleconference with reporters. [X-37B spacecraft photos.]

“On this flight the main thing we want to emphasize is the vehicle itself, not really, what’s going on in the on-orbit phase because the vehicle itself is the piece of news here,” Payton said.

Worth Reading ~ Satire by John W. Lillpop

As the Obama administration agonizes over where to try KSM and other terrorists, extremists on the far left are wringing their collective hands about what do with the sweet souls who have been victimized by the Bush-Cheney Jihad on Islamofascism.

According to the left, those GITMO dirt bags, the ones who would gladly slice your throat for proselytizing the Good News of Christianity, deserve to be treated no more harshly than a blind jay walker, with Alzheimer’s who cannot remember the exact whereabouts of those elusive cross walks.

Given their druthers, President Obama, Nancy Pelosi, Harry Reid, and other nut balls on the left would ship GITMO thugs to the suburbs of Detroit and Chicago to dwell among sleeper cells where mosques, prayer blankets, and bowing east with one’s butt straight up in the air five times a day is considered cool.

NOTE: I would like to know the stats on the radical muslim population AND the illegal immigrants that are in OUR country and what odds we are fighting…are we the underdogs? What do YOU think?

Word of this decade...SHARIA

A Gulen school where students are indoctrinated in the tenets of radical Islam to bring about a New World Order under Sharia (Islamic law) may operate within walking distance to your home or business. Your tax dollars might be used to further “education jihad.” Your children or kids in your hometown might be groomed to take part in the restoration of the Ottoman Empire and the creation of a universal caliphate.
It sounds preposterous. But it’s true.
You may even think that an ecumenical educational enterprise – such as a charter school operated by recent émigrés from Turkey – is worthy of support. Think again. The Gulen schools are so subversive that they have been outlawed in such countries as Russia and Uzbekistan. The funding for these institutions has been curtailed in the Netherlands.
The Gulen schools – which fuel the Gulen movement – have been responsible for transformation of Turkey from a secular state into an Islamic country with 85,000 active mosques – one for every 350 citizens – the highest number per capita in the world, 90,000 imams, more imams than teachers and physicians – and thousands of state-run Islamic schools.
Yet Gulen schools flourish throughout the U.S.A. – 85 such schools are already in existence and dozens more are expected to open next year. All are funded by American taxpayers.

News Real

After Haiti’s devastating earthquake last January, Americans showed their incredible generosity by donating money, resources and manpower to help the victims of the natural disaster and to help Haiti recover.

U.S. Air Force air operations specialists and FAA air-traffic controllers managed air traffic at Haiti’s main airport, facilitating the logistics of getting humanitarian aid coming into the country. More than 12,000 U.S. military personnel supported relief operations.

Except for the usual left-wing nuts and a disgruntled French minister who accused the U.S. military of ”occupying” Haiti during the initial chaotic days of the relief effort, few people – including the Haitians themselves – saw the actions of the U.S. as anything but humanitarian in nature.

Nevertheless, the Obama administration decided that there should be no American flag flying at our main installation near the Port-au-Prince airport because it would appear too provocative. As explained by the U.S. government’s Haiti Joint Information Center in response to a question about the missing flag:

Combine this with all we know, how can ANYONE say he is an American?!

“The administration has announced a new policy on America’s use of nuclear weapons,” I told the class. “We won’t be the first to use them in a conflict with another nation, he said. And, we won’t retaliate with nuclear weapons if we’re attacked by a country which is using other WMD, or ‘Weapons of Mass Destruction,’ such as chemical or biological weapons against us.”
I waited for that to sink in.
After a pause, a boy raised his hand and asked, “What would be the point of that?”
“Yeah,” said another boy. “Why have them if we’re not going to use them?”

Jihad Watch ~ Follow the money…

Money for Sharia

Abdul Tawala Ibn Ali Alishtari, aka Michael Mixon — yet another convert to the Religion of Peace™ who misunderstands his new religion? “US loan shark jailed for aiding Afghan terrorists,” from the London Evening Standard, April 20 (thanks to Block Ness):

A New York businessman has been sentenced to 10 years in prison for trying to funnel money to a terrorism training camp in Afghanistan.

Abdul Tawala Ibn Ali Alishtari, 57, pleaded guilty in September to terrorism financing. He helped transfer £152,000 believing it would help train militants but his accomplice was an undercover agent….

Alishtari, also known as Michael Mixon, thought the money would be used to buy night vision goggles, medical supplies and other equipment. He told the agent to make sure he was “three steps away” from the money to avoid it being traced.

Alishtari donated $20,000 in 2003 to the National Republican Senatorial Committee and more than $15,000 to the National Republican Congressional Committee between 2002 and 2004, which the Republican Party election bodies have given to charity.

The Red phone is dead

The President of the United States hung up the phone. A top French official had just promised that France would support the American led coalition in stopping Saddam Hussein. Apparently progress was being made. Word was that the German Chancellor had promised not to make the U.S. effort an issue in the forthcoming elections. Hopefully, Germany would stay on board, too.

The President knew the upcoming vote at the United Nations would probably not secure the active support of either the Russians or the Chinese, but they might abstain. The chattering classes and their allies in the drive-by media would need a positive vote at Turtle Bay – in their world it was the only means of conveying legitimacy on what the US was planning to do.

His Secretary of State had also been promised by the French ambassador that Paris was fully on board with the UN resolution authorizing the use of military force. One of the most evil regimes in the world could not be allowed to keep or again acquire the most evil of weapons.

GLENN: I have to tell you that last night, last night I had Dr. Alveda came, Martin Luther King’s niece on television. If you DVRed it, it is a don’t miss show. I walked off the set and I said, I don’t know if anybody else feels this way. Maybe it’s just me, but it was a turning point and it was a pivot point at least for me. I don’t know if it was a turning point or it was confirming. I see the landing strip after last night. I see it. I’ve been telling you for the last while now that I know we’re around it, and I guess all I needed was a little bit of confirmation historically, and I got it last night, and additional pieces came last night. Alveda King is Martin Luther King’s niece. She’s about 60 years old. She was marching with Martin Luther King, she was arrested. Her father left her in jail one night because she was seen on television. Some supporter pushed her friend down. I think it was actually a cop, she said, pushed her friend down and so she broke ranks and she went and she helped her friend up and then she was arrested. Her father saw it on television and said, what are you doing? She said, well, I’m in jail. He said, I know you’re in jail; I saw you on television. He said, you don’t break ranks. What part of nonviolence don’t you understand? And she said, well, I just thought and he said, I know you just thought; maybe you should think about it some more; I’ll pick you up tomorrow. And he left her in jail overnight. These people were serious about nonviolence.
