TO THE MUDSLIDE ON EARTH DAY

Since I've been out of the loop for several days, today is catch-up day.

THE PEACE PROCESS:

The deadly Washington mudslide occurred on March 22, the same day that the peace talks began collapsing. I wrote about it here.

The L.A. Times is reporting that President Obama will be visiting there tomorrow, April 22. Since I won't link to the Times, you can Google for the article:  President Obama to visit site of deadly Washington state landslide by Maria La Ganga

Since the peace talks have collapsed, are we really surprised at the title of this next article?

White House secretly plotted to blame Israel for collapse of peace talks

As Obama goes to the site of the mudslide tomorrow, tomorrow will be April 22, Earth Day. NASA chose 'Earth Day' to release a report about asteroids.

Excerpt:

This Earth Day, Tuesday, April 22, three former NASA astronauts will present new evidence that our planet has experienced many more large-scale asteroid impacts over the past decade than previously thought… three to ten times more, in fact. A new visualization of data from a nuclear weapons warning network, to be unveiled by B612 Foundation CEO Ed Lu during the evening event at Seattle's Museum of Flight, shows that "the only thing preventing a catastrophe from a 'city-killer' sized asteroid is blind luck."

Quote from Ed Lu:

"This network has detected 26 multi-kiloton explosions since 2001, all of which are due to asteroid impacts. It shows that asteroid impacts are NOT rare—but actually 3-10 times more common than we previously thought. The fact that none of these asteroid impacts shown in the video was detected in advance is proof that the only thing preventing a catastrophe from a 'city-killer' sized asteroid is blind luck."

Astronauts to reveal sobering data on asteroid impacts

Interesting, as President Obama has mocked asteroids in the past. I wrote about it here, and about other instances where Obama and asteroids have occurred together here.

Earth Day isn't just about learning about the environment, it is also about "honoring" the Earth and promoting world peace, according to wikipedia. Ironic as multiple articles the last few days have asked if Russia's actions in the Crimea, and President Obama's reluctance to become more engaged, are bringing the world to the brink of WW3. John McTernan has some thoughts about that.

IRAN:

I have noted before that whenever the P5+1 is meeting with Iran about their nuclear program, something about President Obama's birth certificate comes up in the news. When the last meeting was held this past November, his birth certificate came into the news because the state official who released it happened to be the only person killed when a plane crashed off the coast of Hawaii. This time, the 2-day meeting concluded on Wednesday, April 9. On Friday, within 48 hours of the meeting's conclusion, President Obama brought up the controversy himself while speaking at an event hosted by Al Sharpton.

And then, a few days later, this drama surfaced in a courtroom in Great Britain:
