Hallandale Beach Blog - A common sense public policy overview offering a critical perspective on the current events, politics, govt., public policy, sports scene and pop culture of the U.S., South Florida and Europe, especially the UK and Sweden.
In particular, Broward & Miami-Dade County, and the cities of Hallandale Beach, Hollywood & Aventura. Trust me when I tell you, this part of Florida is NOT the Land of Lincoln. Photo in upper-left is Hallandale Beach's iconic beachball-colored Water Tower on State Road A1A, September 2008; March 2018 photo below of North Beach, looking left-to-right, looking north, HYDE Condominium, Etaru Japanese Robatayaki restaurant, and Hollywood Beach in the distance, with umbrellas.

Debra Heine deconstructs President Obama's fanciful, tin-eared comments after capture of 2nd Boston terrorist, and reminds us of the sad reality he ignores: "The Terrorists Didn't Fail"; David Remnick's curiously sympathetic column on Boston terrorists will likely go unmentioned by his media pals, esp. Charlie Rose; Anorak (U.K.) reports: American ignorance forces Czech ambassador to issue statement saying Czechs are not Chechens

A collection of pieces re the murderous Tsarnaev brothers and the Boston Marathon bombings that you may've missed since Friday night when President Obama pretended we hadn't seen what we all had seen for ourselves this past week. The Terrorists Didn't Fail, The American News Media Did.
Wishing doesn't make it so.

The Terrorists Didn't Fail

In response to Obama's rush to judgment:
These words from Obama's weak and uninspired statement following the capture of the second terrorist rang  hollow to my ears., 
"One thing we do know is that whatever hateful agenda drove these men to such heinous acts will not — cannot — prevail. Whatever they thought they could ultimately achieve, they’ve already failed. They failed because the people of Boston refused to be intimidated. They failed because, as Americans, we refused to be terrorized.", 

While Obama struggles to figure out what "hateful agenda" might have driven these men to such heinous acts, I have a newsflash for him.
They didn't fail.

In the coming week, will Charlie Rose have his pal and New Yorker editor David Remnick on his PBS show or on the CBS Morning News so that Remnick can be asked some hard questions about his curious choice to write a sympathetic New Yorker column Saturday about the two terrorists, a column that in the end blamed both the U.S. and social media for what happened?

Yes, we all already know the answer to that question is no, and we also note for the record the absence of the word Beslan in Remnick's column.
Beslan as in murderous Beslan school hostage crisis of 2004:

Oh, THOSE Chechans!

American ignorance forces Czech ambassador to issue statement saying Czechs are not Chechens
POSTED: 20TH, APRIL 2013
DID you hear the CNN anchorman root the Boston Marathon bombing in “the Islamic Czech Republic”?, Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, 19, and 6-year-old brother Tamerlan, 26, were born in Chechnya.
Ambassador Petr Gandalovič, Czech ambassador goes on the record:

I wonder what this presages for the Winter Olympics in Sochi, Russia next February?
Even Putin can't lock up everyone in the city who isn't an Olympic employee.

Thumbs up! What a night! #HOLLYWOODFL based photographer and entrepreneur Esther Chuang with a very elated Hollywood Mayor-elect Josh Levy at his Victory Party, held at Leo Anato's Atelier3/AT3 on Harrison Street & S. 19th Avenue, Hollywood. AT3's great environment and the amazing variety of food prepared by chef Kevin Dreifuss, former owner/chef of now-closed ENDS MEAT restaurant, was SUPERB! November 8, 2016 Esther Chuang, Morro Dois Irmãos, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, 2015
Above, perhaps my most-favorite photo ever of Esther, which is really saying something considering the THOUSANDS that I've actually seen of her, from all over the world. But despite the fact that you can't actually see it here, trust me, her amazing smile and inner and external beauty are there. This photo is an even more amazing achievement when you know the backstory of what it took for Esther to get to the top of the mountain, since it's NOT for the faint of heart. Next time you see her, ask her about that! Morro Dois Irmãos, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, on her birthday, July 10, 2015. That's the Christ The Redeemer statue atop Mount Corcovado way out in the horizon on the top of another mountain, to the left of her head. To the right is the world famous beach of Ipanema and to the left is the equally famous beach of Copacabana. In case you forgot what the Christ the Redeemer statue in Rio looks like, up close, plus the Amazon area of Brazil that Esther grew up near in Manaus, here's another Brazilian beauty to connect-the-dots for you: Gisele Bündchen, aka @Gisele.

Abençoado por Deus e bonito por natureza!✨ ������

A floresta Amazônica tem um papel fundamental no equilíbrio do clima na Terra e, portanto, na vida de cada um de nós. Nos últimos anos a proteção diminuiu e o desmatamento aumentou drasticamente. E o que já era ruim, pode ficar ainda pior. Se as medidas que o governo vem tomando não forem vetadas, nosso futuro estará ameaçado. Diga NÃO à diminuição da proteção da Floresta do Jamanxim! Diga NÃO à exploração de minério no coração da floresta! #TodosPelaAmazônia #342Amazonia #TodosPelaAmazonia Assine a petição: link na bio. ������✨���� The Amazon Rainforest plays a key role in balancing the climate on the Earth and therefore in each of our lives. In recent years, protection has decreased and deforestation has increased sharply. And what was already bad can get even worse. If the measures that the government has been taking are not vetoed, our future will be threatened. Say NO to the reduction of the Jamanxim Forest´s protection! Say NO to ore mining in the heart of the Forest! #togetherfortheAmazon
