I don’t think that was a “Knock” bomb. Watch the first pop from the top of the apartment building. There is a rocket being fired from the top of that building, not something coming in. You can see the rocket’s engine glow a split second after the pop. “Knock” bombs are essentially dumb bomb – no explosives, and weigh about 2 to 5 lbs. The plume on the top of the building is from the kicker charge of the rocket that gets it out of the launcher. Knock bombs fall more then 25 seconds before the main ordnance hits. The purpose of the Knock Bomb is to give the “Civilians” time to evacuate the building… 25 seconds isn’t long enough. That said, if the IDF (IDA – Israeli Defense Air Force), will respond immediately when they see a rocket fired, which depending on how far the IDA air craft is from the launch site, take about 20 seconds to a minute or two of flight time. The article accompanying this video is wrong about that being a knock bomb that was dropped.
But, but it was on CNN!! They could not have gotten it wrong.
Yeah, I saw that too. Rocket launched from rooftop and a few seconds later, retaliation. Pretty effin sweet.
Great observation. I was thinking the time span between the purported "knock bomb" and the actual missile hitting was too short. The 25 secs wouldn't allow the terrorists (especially those shooting from the top floors) to get out of the bldg. That is a brilliant observation on your part. Are you military?
I'm not sure if this changes anything about your post....but I wanted to respectfully point out that this video was edited around 11 secs (according to my time stamp). We really do not know how long there was between the "knock" and "boom".

Like so many others have stated… “This is news?” Kathy was never a true Christian, as “True” Christians don’t just stop being Christian. Christianity or Following Yeshua Hammashiach, is more than just saying you believe and taking a dip in public forum! It is akin to “True Love”, when you truly give your heart, mind and soul to Yeshua, it is forever, not something you give today and take back tomorrow. There are a lot of folks who made emotional commitments to “God” or “Jesus”, but they were merely caught up in the moment, during an emotional high point, but essentially is “spiritual lust” if you will! Once they get past that emotional high point, they really haven’t changed nor given their hearts, minds and soul to the Holy Trinity, and they continue to live like the rest of the world. As the Bible tells us, ‘You will know them by their fruits…”, and we aren’t talking apples and bananas here! Ms. Perry’s fruit has been pretty black for some time, and it was obvious she didn’t have a real relationship with the Holy Trinity, so this no revelation to any real Christian. All you have to do is watch one of her video’s or listen to one of her songs, and it really is crystal clear where her heart is NOT.

It never ceases to amaze me why our congress members of either House of Congress, make any such trips abroad! Why?! Isn’t that what the State Dept is for? Why should taxpayers be on the hook for the tremendous expense of self-serving congress members travel abroad??? What authority does McCain or any member of the Senate or House have to make any kind of deal, other than an under-handed kind of deal?

Fact is often stranger than fiction, so unless there was a note or message explaining the reason for his action, or unless the children’s father knows of some reason his father-in-law was at odds with his wife (chidren’s mother), the rest is just speculation, and not worth the time to type out here. It was a horrible and thoughtless act on the women’s father’s part to subject those children to their grandfather killing their mother and aunt in front of them! They will be scared for life, as a result of this!

It makes them feel “Unsafe” because they are not sure they are right! So if anyone raises an opposing view or thought, it feeds their fears that they could be wrong about the whole “No God” thing, which translates into “Unsafe/Insecure” feelings! The Progressives/Liberals for the most part can’t offer a valid argument to discount/disprove the existence, so they need to silence those with opposite or non-supportive positions to their own! What is remarkable is that it only takes 1% to 5% of the group to stifle/strip the other 95% to 99%’s Constitutional rights!

I couldn’t clearly hear the prayer! I only caught bits and pieces! It is a shame we had only someone’s cellphone or video camera’s poor quality and cluttered audio recorded from way back in the auditorium to hear this prayer! I do applaud them for not letting 6 students stopping over 100 more students from exercising their 1st Amendment rights!

All that smarts and they still wipe their butts with their hand! Hummm! If they are the “Fathers” of modern mathematics… WHAT HAPPENED?!?! Until the Westerners found oil and came in and showed the Arabs and Persians how to build modern building and build highways and install electricity, most of them were nomads, wondering around the Middle Eastern deserts! If they were truly the Fathers of Mathematics, flight, aeronautics, nuclear physic, electrical engineering, thermal dynamics, and other high technologies should be common place in the Middle East, and High Tech capitals of the world! But for some reason they have to play catch up, and send their youth out of the Middle East to obtain top educations. Isn’t it funny that the most technologically advanced country in the Middle East, is Yisra’el!?! While their enemies (every Arab country in the Middle East) has to buy high tech weapons from other countries outside the Middle East. Help me out here, what is wrong with this picture?! You would think that the folks that invented something as important as Mathematics would be a little more advanced that just post stone-age!

Simply AMAZING! Folks like RNM and Encinom, truly test the 1st Amendment, & are a testament to the generosity of this website! In the midst of this horrific event these knuckleheads & their ilk, find it necessary to come on this website and try to take shots at Glenn and MercuryOne! Simply mind-boggling!! In all honesty, I could care less if Glenn was mugging for photo opts, as long as he is there with aid & helping, who really cares. I don’t see the MoveOn.Org’s or other Lib organizations there offering any kind of help. The local officials don’t want looter and tourist there, but I am sure, if you want to offer help, you can and they will direct you where to go to help them. As for the Salvation Army and Red Cross, you should check to see how much of your donation actually gets to the people in need! After skimming off administrative cost and paying staff, about 60% – 70% of you dollar actually get to the folks in need. You can bet if Glenn says 100% of your donations through Mercury1 is going to the victims, 100% is going to the victims! Don’t believe it? What do you suppose would happen if 100% didn’t go to the victims, and you can bet there will be audits, if not by the various lib watchdog groups, by the IRS! If 100% didn’t go to the victims after Glenn announcing it would, his Mercury1 would lose all credibility, and you can bet that isn’t going to happen. I don’t believe Glenn is anything but genuine, but I don’t care if he isn’t as long help ge

…and small deer, dogs, cats, geese, alligators under 7′, even small children. Even though I had Boas and other snakes for years as pets, the big pythons, boas and non-native lizards that have been release, escaped or got loose due to hurricanes, have to go, for the sake of the environment, as they are destroying populations of native animals as well as putting domestic animals and people in danger. The zoological parks, zoos and animal rehab centers are at capacity already from collected pythons and non-native lizards, so the python would have been destroyed officials, more than likely, if he had turned it in alive. Unless you are equipped to transport large snakes, animals of that size would be dangerous to try to keep alive. And it doesn’t take a very large knife to kill a large snake, it is a matter if piercing the snakes relatively small skull, so a 4 inch lock blade knife driven into the top of the snakes head would easily dispatch it, especially since it was being held. If the snake was un-restrained (on the ground) and mad, I would be a different story. Even though they are non-venomous, they have fairly long curved teeth and can delivery a very nasty bite, with a high probability of infection! Snakes that grow over 10′ should not be sold as pets, unless licensed. It should be a felony to catch someone releasing non-native species into the wild as well!

Tough break, and he should have had better control of his tongue, but I don’t know if I would have fired him for it. With all the lies the rest of the news media is pumping into the general public, a couple of foul words in frustration, when he thought he was off-air, shouldn’t even raise an eyebrow!
May 14, 2013 at 4:38pm
You had better check with the 1st lady about that! Chocolate is on both Michelle’s and Bloomberg’s list of things to ban to stop obesity! Maybe if it shot unsweetened, dark chocolate, Bloomberg and M. Obama would allow it to slide! LOL!

Guys, you are high, if you think any one of or even all three of these scandals will remotely threaten Obama’s presidency! This the the pre-election airing of dirty laundry… to get it out in the open, take a public tongue-lashing and put it behind the DNC so when the 2014 election season begins in earnest as well as the thoughts about 2016 begin to bubble up next spring, all these potentially election killers will be long since buried and forgotten by the short memory of American Voters! This is nothing about ‘justice’ or anything else!

Main Lesson to learn here: If you are using your cellphone or a camera to video tape a crime committed by law-enforcement, or anyone for that matter…. keep your big mouth shut! At least until you have a chance to make copies and put it on Youtube and give copies to local news outlets. And if you are taping something, do it from cover, or at least don’t make it obvious you are video taping them. Everytime a cop is video taped, the 1st thing they do, is demand the video! They are NOT legally entitled to that video, unless you can demand their videos as well, which you can’t.

Wow! This woman, and I use the term in the loosest of terms, simply takes anyone with a brain’s breath away, with the levels of ignorance and out-right stupidity!!! There needs to be an investigation of the congressional district’ing in Texas, as I can’t fathom Texans keeping this brainless, poor excuse for an “American” in office! She is an embarrassment for Texans, Black Americans and Women, just to name a few! The folks who keep voting her in must truly be morons and on the government dime! Just proves that any idiot can be elected to congress!
May 6, 2013 at 10:28am
Dan, Dan, Dan… I guess once a socialist/Marxist/Progressive journalist, always a socialist/Marxist/Progressive journalist. Just to set the record straight – Most of us Conservative/Tea Party member love our dogs far too much than to poison them with any part of Obama! Hell, I think too highly of buzzards and possums than to let them feed on his body, were I to find him in that state! Truth is I don’t even think the flies would blow (lay eggs on him, for you city folks, this is not any sexual reference) him… he is that toxic!
I don’t wish him or his family dead, as that would make a martyr out of the devil, and I nor any other thinking conservative and/or Tea Party member want that! Obama is but one of the heads of the hydra that is the enemy of this country, our Constitution, and our American Way of Life!
I couldn't have said it better. If there were only a sense of decency in America today, Obama would have been Impeached before we even got to this point, and sneering, seething goons like Rather and Matthews would be utterly irrelevant to 90% of the people.

Of course I don’t know for sure, but even though both bucks were very tired and stumbled, they seem to recover enough to go into the brush, where they would have felt safe enough lay down and rest. Base on the video, it looked as if both bucks had a pretty good chance of surviving. As for the deer runnning onto a road to cause an accident, it appeared they were in a rural enough setting that most traffic on those rural roads would have been slow enough to avoid the deer, once they rested up from their ordeal. Who can I sue for Obama getting re-elected and continue his destruction of this country??? Who allowed the low-info folks to vote!?! Shouldn’t there be an I.Q. test to qualify a person to vote???

Animal tranqs are a controlled substance, expensive and perishable, so most conservation officers don’t carry them. However, even if they had tranq darts with them, in the extreme stressed condition those animals were in, the tranq. would have probably killed them. The officer did the only think he could do to safely save those deer’s lives, with little or not additional stress put on the animals.
February 14, 2013 at 2:59pm
That was the most ethical and safety way to free the deer! To have gotten close enough to cut the deer apart with a saw, would have put far more stress on the animals the shooting the antlers apart, and would have put the people trying to help in danger – a kick from a White-tail deer can disembowel a man, as their hooves are very sharp. The both deer were near exhaustion but it only takes one well placed kick and the human rescuers would have been in serious trouble. Shooting the antlers to break or weaken them to break was a brilliant solution. Most would have shot both deer to end their suffering. The officer acted with great compassion and demonstrated great problem solving skills. Anyone upset with the way he did it are supremely stupid, and have no ideal about interacting with wildlife in such a situation. That wasn’t Bambi there and would not have understood those 2 officers were there just to help, not harm. The PETA people are a joke, and hypocritical to the Nth degree! They had rather kill an animal or allow it to perish rather than offer help from a human! Or in other words the love animals so much, they let them die senselessly! I’ve watch wildlife shows where an injured lioness was allowed to die and her cubs to die as well, because the film-makers didn’t want to interfere with nature!!! But then they decry poachers that kill lions! Hypocrites to the Nth degree!!!
Why should they have been freed? They did this to themselves. This is a weakness in their intelligence (such as it is), and needs to be weeded out. Continue to free them, and they continue to breed deer that are not quite smart enough not to go full power against a similar sized large rack.
The movie Bambi has really thrown people's perspective out of whack concerning animals. Now we're all supposed to correct the bad actions of animals that, if left alone, improve that animal's gene pool. Just as with welfare and social services for humans, we're enabling the creation of bad traits and poor decisions in animals as well.
At least we feel all warm and fuzzy inside.
BTW, Missouri Democrats just introduced a confiscation bill. Citizens would have 90 days to turn in their weapons. (There is a super majority of Republicans in the legislature, so the bill has very little chance, even with that @sswipe gov Nixon.) But hey.. trolls.. CONFISCATION OF FIREARMS! Politicians not just talking about it but trying to ACT on it.
Ghost- lol uh nearly all animals are that stupid. You are thinking at a human level they think on an animal level. It's not going to change. I don't think they should just because they are doing what they are programmed to do. It's like telling humans not to have sex. It goes against our instincts and then fighting over females goes against theirs. And sometimes their antlers get tangled. They don't really think that far ahead or beyond their own instincts for that matter
Bravo! Well said, I could not agree more. Thank you for saying it so well-and to all the others that totally get it. I feed wild critters in my yard, my bad, I am probably in trouble. Kudos to the shooter.
Wrong, accidents do happen, Their "genes" did not dictate they locked horns. Maybe, just maybe, deer butting matches are an important part of their social structure. But you must be a real wildlife expert, huh? Really, you evolution types take everything soooo far. Because you are so arrogant.
I understand that actually. And if they snag each other, then let nature take its course. Eventually, the larger rack bucks may start to shy away from bucks with equally large racks. I mean, they probably had to start somewhere with fighting, 100,000 years ago, and evolved to today. Let it continue, stay out of the way, let nature work as designed.
Ok Cantstandlibs, I'll let you take it up with your hippy friends out helping whales escape their own foibles. Not my concern, and I had no intention of thinking that this would be a popular opinion.
When God works, I stand out of His way. Humans didn't cause this, if they had I think it would then be ethical to help the deer. But they didn't. The deer are sorely overpopulated in Illinois (and the midwest in general), but hey, don't let that stop you. Save Bambi. Have fun. Feel warm and fuzzy inside. I'm sure it will work out well in the end.
It's testosterone that makes bucks fight, not lack of intelligence. Sheesh...
Ghost- Well I mean if I see them and they're tangled, I'd probably help. I'm not going to go way out of my way to help them. I like animals and I realize they're engaging in an activity that they can't help. I don't really hold it against them. God says take care of his creation, so I do. But Illinois is probably overpopulated because they're arent enough hunters. It is a liberal state.
not "make them fight", rather, how they choose to fight. Testosterone makes one aggressive, it doesn't stop brain function entirely. We're mammals. I'm male. I may get mad or aggressive and want to fight over testosterone, but that isn't the selection part, it's when I pick a poor way to fight that determines if I'm selected out of the ol' gene pool.
But of course, the same argument could be used for testosterone over abundence. Or whatever. Hey, save Bambi, I see my point is lost here. Keep messing with nature, I'm sure we know better than God how to order things in the world.
Diet determines the size and quality of their antlers which fall off every spring and grow back during the course of the following year. In the fall, the length of darkness in the days triggers the testosterone in bucks to increase and bucks start preparing to rut,aka breed. The valvet that covers and nourishes their antler growth dries up and falls off and their neck muscles increase in mass as they prepare to fight one another for breeding rights. Of course the bigger bucks chase off the weaker ones and breed with most of the does in their home range. Here's what can happen if the antlers of two deer get locked together. Warning! Not for the faint of heart.
We "mess with nature" just by living. And just how many years have you spent in the field conducting scientific studies of Odocoileus virginianus?! None. You assume every buck mates and does so successfully. You are wrong.

Very well stated. I could not have been that patient in responding to Ghost. I was going to tell him that stupidity doesn't always breed itself out, and that Ghost is a perfect example of that evolutionary theory.

If I knew nothing about Glenn Beck, but read the article above and watched his tribute video, I would consider Glenn a good man. When I first started listening to Glenn, every now and then, he would mention Victor, which allowed my to find common ground beyond politics, as I am a German Shepherd Dog (GSD) person! They are simply an amazing breed, though I love all dogs, and most animals. I grew up around GSD’s. and my first memories are of the GSD we had when I was 4 years old. When my wife and I bought our house, as soon as we were settled in, an opportunity came about to allow us to get 2 GSD’s – brother and sister: Wolfin and Celest. They were spectacular dogs, and since we had now children, they were our children. When Wolfin was 7 years old, we decided to breed him to keep the blood line alive. Aslan was the result. Aslan was another wonderful 4 legged son! When Celest developed a spinal condition that paralyzed her, and we had to put her to sleep, at the age of 9; it broke my heart. Wolfin had to be put to sleep at age 12 1/2, and he and Aslan look almost identical to Victor. Wolfin got down in his back like Victor seems to be doing. Aslan was put to sleep this August 8, due to a tumor on his heart bursting… he was 7 years old and it has devastated me. I know how hard this is and I have been and will continue to pray for you and your family. I always stay with my dogs when being put down, it is the last act of respect I can offer! Blessings
