Midnight News -- 9/3/06

Hillary Clinton may back away from running for President. She is probably realizing she can't win the Presidential race without first winning her party's nomination, and that her exceptionally plotted steps towards the White House have not made her popular with the Democrat core of liberal-left voters. My sense is that they hate both her positions on the Iraq war and her phony, empty-suit personality. Not fertile ground for her to win their votes. The puffery that supports Clinton's fame can now be seen for what it is: great for winning safe seats like the Demcratic Senate seat for New York, and for maintaining a high profile amongst the nation's editorialists, but useless for actually winning a contested race.

An American has renounced of his home to join Osama Bin Laden in the caves of Afganistan. He suggests we all convert to Islam.

The nascent terror group that kidnapped two FOX News reporters has only just begun it's war on Jews and the West. They plan more assaults on non-Muslims: "'Any infidel blood will have no sanctity,' the group said in the statement." If they were American, they would be roundly denounced by all quarters; since they are Palestinians, their murderous hatred will be excused, forgiven, and even praised by many American leftists.

Russians riot against the presence of Chechen immigrants in their northern city after two Russians are killed in a Chechen restaurant.
