Did not expect to find this when reading Jack Cashill's article about President Obama's timeline the night the Benghazi terror attack was taking place.

This blog often looks at events that happen on the same day or within 24-48 hours of the U.S. (Obama, Kerry) interacting, shall we say, negatively, with Israel. Usually it is concerning the peace talks (in which land is expected to be ceded), or Iran (in which acceptance of Iran being a nuclear power is expected). However, this is the first time I've actually found two events taking place simultaneously.

Jack Cashill reports that on the night of the terror attack, President Obama is said to have made two phone calls. The second phone call was to Hilary Clinton at 10 p.m.

The first phone call?

To Benjamin Netanyahu, at around 7 p.m.

The purpose of the phone call?


About 7 p.m. he called Benjamin Netanyahu to discuss a perceived snub of the Israel prime minister. This perception, reported Lynn Sweet of the Chicago Sun-Times, presented “a political problem to a president who is wooing the Jewish vote.”

What Obama Did on September 11, 2012

So . . . while Americans were being attacked and murdered, President Obama chose to take that time to call Netanyahu and rebuke him, believing he had hurt his chances with Jewish voters.


If you were dying, is that the phone call you would want your President to be making?

Andrew Malcolm is also looking at what the President was doing that night.

What was Obama really doing during Benghazi?


Thank you to all who sent the report that the first ever "rare" earthquake warning has been issued for Oklahoma.

Rare Earthquake Warning Issued for Oklahoma

I caught this screenshot from Drudge as well.

Scientists believe the earthquakes we are experiencing here in Oklahoma are related to fracking and deep water injection sites. Many of those sites have been shut down, but the earthquakes have continued. We have them everyday, though I don't feel them but maybe one or two every few days. The house briefly shutters or something will rattle, but nothing frightening (unlike the 5.6 two years ago). Dutchsince has a YouTube about some of the earthquakes taking place not just in Oklahoma but throughout the U.S. He even includes some info about Yellowstone.

Some have wondered where I am located with respect to the wildfire here in central Oklahoma that has been reported in the news. I am about 30 miles south and east of it. It is headed away from our property, and we are not in any danger. The fire started as a "controlled" burn. "Controlled" does not necessarily mean "approved"; the term is used to differentiate from a fire that started from something like lightning, or train sparks in dry grass along a railroad, or a car accident causes a car to catch on fire and then nearby grass or brush catches on fire -- something along those lines. It is believed that this fire started on Sunday afternoon when someone decided to either burn some trash or a pile of brush and the fire quickly got out of control. Winds were blowing at 30-35 mph, which is actually not all that unusual here in Oklahoma. When we first moved here in 1988, I told a friend of mine in Arkansas that yes, the winds really DO come sweeping down the plains. We are supposed to have rain on Thursday, and it is hoped that that will finally stop this wildfire. In the meantime, numerous homes and buildings have been destroyed, and one man lost his life. And concerning that man, the news reports I've been hearing have been a little misleading -- the man DID NOT refuse to evacuate. He gave his pickup truck to the family next door so they could get some of their belongings out of their mobile home (along with their several children). He had a semi parked in his yard and it appears he was going to use that to leave but was overcome by smoke before he could do so. Several family and friends have spoken to news crews here in OKC, and they all have said the same thing -- he was trying to get out of there -- he just cut it too close.

Thank you again for your thoughts and prayers -- we are not in any danger.
