705P ET: Herb London Hudson Institute, author “America’s Secular Challenges: The Rise of a New National Religion,” re “the cult of the self” that is “inimical to civitas – patriotism.” Re the Obama phenomenon and the search for faith in peculiar shibboleths such as, “Change you can believe in.”

720P: Daniel Seaman, director Israeli Government Press Office (GPO), re foreign media, French TV2 and the al-Durah blood libel, 2000.

735P: Roundtable professional Vaughn Ververs and Jake Schlesinger WSJ re Obama sort-of takes command, re Bush in Europe, the last hurrah, re

750P: Continued. With Evelyn Pringle,, re Tony Rezko's April letter to the judge warning of talking.

805P: Larry Kudlow CNBC Kudlow & Company re the dollar vs the price of oil, re worldwide inflation, re the tame CPI.

820P: Malcolm Hoenlein, Conference of Presidents, re Hamas continues to rocket the Negev, no Israeli answer, re the Iran threats grow and so do the IDF aims.

850P: Ann Marlowe and Daoud Sultanzoy of Afghanistan re Pashtun reluctance to let go of the broadsword and take up the gavel, the internet, the modern.

905P: Stephen Fidler Financial Times re the decline and fall of Al Qaeda, almost. Al Q has lost all but marginal support of Arabia and is in decline in Europe, even among the group of guys syndrome that produced the 5/05 strike in London. A major crit is that Al Q slaughters women and children with their shahid ops in Iraq, Algiers, Morroco. When confronted, No. 2 bump on his head Dr. Alzawahiri equivocates with routine hate-mongering moral equivalency: “We have not killed innocents. In fact, we fight those who kill innocents: those who kill innocents are the Americans, the Jews, the Russians, the French and their agents. Were we insane killers of innocents, it would be possible for us to kill thousands of them in the crowded markets, but we are confronting the enemies of the Muslims and targeting them, and during this, an innocent might fall.”

920P: Patty Kim, director, "Abduction: The Megumi Yokota Story" PBS ,re the 13 year old Japanese schoolgirl abducted by North Korean ops in 1977 and kept hidden for 20 years until her parents learned her fate.

Mr. Feith to the Huffpo posse is like a Sox fan along third base at the Stadium. The Washington Post treats Mr. Feith's book as if it does not exist though it might be news. There's even a paperback that collects the peculiarly energetic blogs about a book that does not exist, though it is news. Enjoyed luncheon remarks by Mr. Feith recently at a Hudson Institute event. He has no horns, no tail, and is exceedingly professorial, a large, friendly Wilsonian gentleman with a collegiate enthusiasm for making himself clear.

955P: Exeunt re Mars news. Re two children of the war with rogue states, Megumi Yokota of “Abduction,” an innocent victim of North Korean barbarism, and Mohammed al-Durah of Gaza, a fake victim in propaganda campaign of the Palestinian ops and their Europeans allies.

720P: Joel Millman, WSJ, re global food security in crisis and the decades of mismanagement of crops, farming, tariffs, irrigation. For example, Haiti was once a rice bowl. Now, because of low tariffs and American intervention, Haiti is rice dependent on US handouts, and the Haitian farmers are abandoned without useful guidance to developing profitable crops.

735P: Political roundtable with Larry Johnson of No Quarter blog and Bill Whalen of the Hoover Institution, re the Obama campaign surges past the McCain campaign in the polls, and re the web smear war of the three powers, the Obamas, Clintons and McCains and their fellow travelers, re the birth of PUMA, the “dead-enders” of the Clinton supporters. PUMA is "Party Unity My A--"

850P: Zahid Hussain, WSJ, from Islamabad, re US air strike on Taliban and Al Q in Konar Province in Afghanistan, re protest by the frail P.M. Yousef Raza Gilani Pakistani government claiming that US helicopters launched counterattack on Pakistani soldiers.

905P: Bill Carter, author “Red Summer” re the sockeye salmon season just opening in Bristol Bay on the Alaskan Aleutian Peninsula, re life with fisherman, life with grizzly bears.

920P: Bob Zimmerman, author, “Universe in a Mirror,” re Mars Phoenix Lander soil sample week, re ISS and Discovery mission.

Interesting first topic. WABC lost one of their old talk show hosts this week.

Fr Paul Keenan who co-hosted Religion On The Line passed away suddenly of a heart attack on Tuesday.

It really was a rough week,first Jim McKay, than Father Paul and too top it off Tim Russert.

I wonder who is going to get Russerts time slot. If Matthews hadn't gone over the edge about 6 years back with Bush Derangement Syndrome he might have gotten the nod. He is so nonobjective at the present time that I can't see him getting the show.

My (baby) brother is spending Father’s Day away from his family and is in Basrah, Iraq. I was having difficulty listening to an aftermath analysis on this night, so I turned it off. I’ll try back again next week.

Kudlow saying that McCain is badly briefed on economic issues and missing a golden opportunity to go after Obama on domestic drilling.

I agree. I want to know what the hell Steven Forbes, Don Luskin, Phil Graham, and Jack Kemp are supposedly doing for McCain.

They can talk all they want but if McCain is too stubborn to listen then it won’t do any good.

In the past few days, McCain has made slight moves away from his no drill views. Now saying states have rights to what they want to do re drilling, knowing Gov. Palin of Alaska and others want to drill.

Kudlow needs to get McCain’s ear directly.

Interesting conversation last hour, besides indication that Obama has been lying about his religion (Muslim originally), they were discussing whether he is even eligible to run for President because of the circumstances of his birth and laws at that time (non US-citizen father and mother, while US citizen, not five years past age of 16 when she gave birth). The fact that he won’t release his birth certificate provides doubts as to what his true citizenship/religion is.

That was an interesting discussion. First I’d really heard of the controversy. I always appreciate John Fund’s take on an issue. It’s nice to have the schedule posted on the thread now. Thanks, Perdogg for finding it.
