As part of Robert Mueller’s reconfirmation hearing, he stated–and then was repeatedly asked–what threats face our country. Here’s how he described these threats in his hearing statement:
The FBI has never faced a more complex threat environment than it does today. Over the past year, we have seen an extraordinary array of national security and criminal threats, from terrorism and espionage to cyber attacks and traditional crimes. These threats have ranged from attempts by Al Qaeda and its affiliates to place bombs on airplanes bound for the United States to lone actors seeking to detonate IEDs in public squares and subways, intent on mass murder.
A month ago, the successful operation in Pakistan leading to Usama bin Laden’s death created new urgency for this threat picture. while we continue to exploit the materials seized from bin Laden’s compound, one of the early assessments from this intelligence is that Al Qaeda remains committed to attacking the United States. in addition, we are focused on the new information about the homeland threat gained from this operation.
We also continue to face the threat from adversaries, like Anwar Alaqui, who are engaged in efforts to radicalize people in the United States to commit acts of terrorism. in the age of the Internet, these radicalizing figures no longer need to meet or speak personally with those they seek to influence. Instead, they conduct their media campaigns from remote regions of the world, intent on fostering terrorism by lone actors here in the United States.
Alongside these ever-evolving terrorism plots, the espionage threat persists as well. Last summer, there were the arrests of 10 Russian spies, known as “illegals,” who secretly blended into American society in order to clandestinely gather information for Russia. And we continue to make significant arrests for economic espionage as foreign interests seek to steal controlled technologies.
The cyber intrusion at Google last year highlights the ever-present danger from a sophisticated Internet-attack, along with countless other cyber incidents, these attacks threaten to undermine the integrity of the Internet and to victimize the businesses and people who rely on it.
In our criminal investigations, the FBI continues to uncover massive corporate and mortgage frauds that weaken the financial system and victimize investors, homeowners, and ultimately taxpayers. We are also rooting out insidious health care scams involving false billings and fake treatments that endanger patients and fleece government health care programs.
The violence in Mexico remains a threat for the United States, as we saw with the murder of three individuals connected to the U.S. Consulate in Ciudad Juarez in March 2010 and the shooting earlier this year of two DHS Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents in Mexico.
And throughout, we are confronted with instances of corruption that undermine the public trust and violent gangs that continue to take innocent lives. [my emphasis]
So Mueller’s list, in order, is:
- Al Qaeda-launched attack like the Undie-bomber
- Self-radicalized attacks like Mohamed Osman Mohamud
- Spies like Anna Chapman
- Cyber attacks allegedly launched by China
- Massive corporate fraud committed by people like Lloyd Blankfein that weakens our financial system
- Health care scams
- Drug cartel violence
- Public corruption
Now, I take the order here as some sort of prioritization. And that view is born out by Mueller’s answers to several questions about the threats facing the US. he always mentioned terrorism, including terrorism committed by people self-radicalized via the Internet. he mentioned cyber attacks. he raised the risk of drug cartel violence again.
But unless I missed it, in his extemporaneous descriptions of the threats facing our nation, Mueller did not again mention financial fraud. Update: in a response to Amy Klobuchar’s version of this he said FBI had a,
backlog of mortgage fraud and white collar criminal cases that we are assiduously working through.
So maybe that includes Blankfein (though mortgage fraud usually means garden variety local fraud).
In other words, in spite of his concession that the banksters’ “massive corporate frauds … weaken the financial system and victimize investors, homeowners, and ultimately taxpayers,” Mueller seems to think that a hapless teenager framed by the FBI represents a bigger threat to our country than Goldman Sachs crashing our entire economy.
Too bad for the American people that Congress is falling all over itself rushing to reconfirm Mueller.

AL ROKER’S RED VELVET CAKE and FROSTING
1/2 cup solid vegetable shortening
2 cups sugar
3 large eggs
1 tsp vanilla extract
2 1/4 cups flour
1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp salt
1 cup buttermilk
1 tbsp cider vinegar
1 to 4 tbsp red food coloring
Position oven rack in the center of the oven and preheat oven to 350 degrees. Butter two 9-inch round cake pans and dust with flour. Set aside.
Using an electric mixer, beat together the shortening and sugar until fluffy, at least 3 minutes. Add the eggs, one at a time, to the creamed mixture, beating well after each egg. Beat in the vanilla.
In a small bowl, stir together the flour, cocoa powder, baking soda, and salt.
In another bowl, combine the buttermilk, vinegar, and food coloring. Gradually stir the dry ingredients into the egg mixture, alternating with the buttermilk mixture until all ingredients are just incorporated and the batter is smooth. do not over mix. using a rubber spatula, scrape the batter evenly into the prepared pans. Bake for about 35 minutes until the cake just begins to pull away from the sides of the pans and a knife inserted in the center comes out clean. Remove from the oven and cool on wire racks for about 15 minutes. Run a knife around the edge of the pans and remove the cakes from pans by inverting them onto the racks. Turn right side up and let cool thoroughly.
The cakes can be stored, well wrapped, at room temperature for up to two days or frozen for up to two months. If frozen, thaw at room temperature before proceeding to frosting.
3 tbsp flour
pinch of salt
1 cup whole milk
2 sticks unsalted butter, softened
1 cup sugar
1 tbsp vanilla extract
In a small saucepan, combine the flour, salt, and a few tablespoons of the milk; stir until smooth. Set the saucepan over low heat and stir in the remaining milk. Cook, stirring, until the mixture thickens to the consistency of gravy, about 5 minutes. Remove from the heat and let cool to room temperature. using an electric mixer, beat together the butter, sugar, and vanilla for a minute or so until smooth. Scrape the cooled flour mixture into the butter mixture and beat on high speed for about three minutes, until the frosting is the consistency of whipped cream. (Frosting can be covered and refrigerated for up to 2 days; let sit at room temperature for about 15 minutes to reach a spreadable consistency.) Frost sides and top of cake.

Organizers of the now-annual Veterans Day 10K run & Walk have issued a “call to arms” for race day – Saturday, Nov. 5. Race committee members Hugh Stobbs and Pat Duffy are asking that local residents, businesses, churches and others turn out along the race route which follows National Road from Elm Grove west to downtown Wheeling, and show their patriotic support for all the veterans who will participate in the race.
The race will kick off at 8:30 a.m. Saturday from Bridge Street Middle School in Elm Grove and continues along National Road to the finish line at WesBanco Arena at 14th and Main streets. The race banquet will begin at 11:30 a.m. inside WesBanco Arena where Stobbs will show a short video tribute to current U.S. military and veterans.
Registration for the race will be held from 5-7 p.m. Friday at Bridge Street School and starting at 7 a.m. Saturday until the start of the race. Major sponsors helping to offset costs for the race include the Health Plan of the Upper Ohio Valley, Progressive Bank and the Ohio County Commission.
“We have had a tremendous show of support already and we hope people will come out on race day and let these veterans know that we appreciate them,” Stobbs said. “We already have 325 people signed up to run or walk and that’s 75 more than at this time last year. we know we will have even more on race day.”
Stobbs said proceeds from the race will be given to the Paralyzed Veterans of America which has already received $22,000 from the race, now in its second year.
The race will include numerous special guests including Cpl. Fred B. McGee, Army veteran from Smithfield, Ohio, who distinguished himself by gallantry in action near Tang-Wan-Ni, Korea on June 16, 1952 during an assault on enemy fortified positions. When his squad leader was wounded and machine gunner killed, McGee assumed command and took over the gun to continue the assault on the enemy. though wounded himself, he helped in the evacuation of the dead and wounded. McGee’s actions earned him the Silver Star.
McGee and his wife will lead the race in a humvee provided by veteran John Lanos. Wheeling Mayor Andy McKenzie will start the race.
At least two paralyzed veterans in wheelchairs will take part in the race. Stobbs said 75 percent of the veterans who will be in the race are over 50 years of age. he noted that many of the participants – veterans and civilians – are choosing to walk the race course rather than run, including 81-year-old Ella Jane Custer and 85-year-old Bob Rine, both of Wheeling.
There is no fee for veterans to participate in the race. Additional banquet tickets will be sold for $10.50 at the registration table and on race day at WesBanco Arena’s ticket office.
Stobbs said the public will be able to distinguish who the veterans are on race day as they will be wearing race entry numbers emblazoned with an eagle. Participants already registered for the race hail from 10 states and as far away as Washington state.
The veterans hospital in Clarksburg plans to bring 10 disabled veterans to Wheeling to view the race. Local Boy and Girl Scouts and 4-H groups will provide aid stations along the race route.
“I’m real proud of this community’s involvement in the race for the veterans. It’s nice to show them how much we appreciate them,” Stobbs added.
As far as golf magazine in circulation goes, Golf Digest remains the most widely read monthly golf magazine. made available in print by an American media company Advance Publications, this monthly digest concerns itself on golf topics in general flavor. while Advance Publications do circulate specialized golf digests like Golf for Women, Golf World, and Golf Business, Golf Digest remains their flagship when it comes to the golf arena.
Golf Digest is perhaps better known for its rankings of America’s 100 Greatest Golf Courses that featured the best golf course to be found worldwide. It was a colossal idea, as one researcher stated, since it promotes those major sponsorships and arrangements at the same time made Golf Digest readily feasible to the reading public if only the information for the best golf course was the collective interest.
Either case, Golf Digest’s rankings of America’s 100 Greatest Golf Courses proved to be very successful. so successful was it that ultimately, Golf Digest’s biennial rankings are regarded as an actual basis rate as far as every golf course go since its inception at 1985. the Golf Digest’s ratings are considered legitimate too, since the entries are voted on by a board of several distinguished golf experts. the most successful qualifier is the Pine Valley Golf Club, who topped the list every time except on the 2001 ranking.
Golf Digest also produces lists of the best new courses, the best golf resorts, and the best golf course in each state.
Golf Digest Magazine offers tips and secrets in golf equipment, starter instructions an techniques explained in articles and even an instructional video, news and top stories about the present and recent tours, feature articles on just about anything but regarding golf, travel suggestions towards the best golf courses, and of course -Tiger Woods. Golf Digest can also be accessed by web golfdigest.com, where online golfing content are available for browsing.
Golf Digest became a branded circulation because it covers comprehensive issues about golf. A few other golf magazines feature comprehensive critiques, commentary, issues, reports, rumors, and stories about golf, all mixed in a flavorful manner. Golf Digest subscription is offered at $14.97 and the first time customer receives two risk free trial issues along with two free tips booklets. If you are interested, call 800-727-4653 which is toll free in the US and Canada.
For those who want to interested, here’s the top 10 of the 100 Greatest Golf Courses for the 2005 – 2006 list.

Review TaylorMade Penta TP Golf Balls (1 Dozen) Golfball on Sell
I used to play the TP Red and they replaced it with this ball. I got them as a prize in a scramble and was very pleasantly surprised when I started playing them. the hit very well from any club. Plenty of distance (I hit my driver over 310 and I didn’t lose a yard), very forgiving on mishits, and they stop dead on the green even on low trajectory shots with my hybrid Adams A3 3-5 Irons. I plan to start playing these full time now that I have fallen completely in love with these. I only wish they were a tad bit less expensive.
This ball is the best I’ve ever played. it is really soft around the greens and is responsive to each different club. on off center shots it goes around the same distance, if not a little less. the ball is long off the tee and has little spin, but has a lot of spin with the wedges. I will never switch to another ball and am hooked on these. I do hope the price goes down a little, but overall the price is fair.

TaylorMade Penta TP Golf Balls (1 Dozen) Golfball Review
I am really starting to like this ball. the overall performance is simply terrific. my normal drives from the tee box play a strong hook and now with the Penta my tee shots are on the fairway. I was determined to stop playing other golf balls besides my Z-star, but I knew the Z star was not giving me enough spin around the green. I tend to find myself chipping alot off the fringe and my first chip shot with the Penta landed 2 inches from the hole, something I never did with my other golf balls. somehow it seems this ball is intuitive because it does what you ask it to do. it almost seems to be very forgiving too….I can’t explain it any futher until you try it out for yourself….trust me.I do notice however that it seems a little clunky or thick, but I think with time that will go away. what I am after is lower scores and more confidence on the tee and around the greens. regarding putting, the Penta truly shines in giving me a true, muted, and straight putt with my Cameron.all my approach shots have landed safely with very little back or front spin, and I am happy for that in my game. my swing speed is 100mph with my driver and distance compared to the Z-star is the same. with only playing two rounds with the Penta, I would advise this ball as living it up to the hype that Talor made proclaims. I know the price is on the high end as compared to the PRO-V1, but I want to say that Penta has a slight better edge in performance than the Pro-V1 off the tee, simply because it spins less. I do recommend the Penta over any other ball in the market, except the Pro-V1.

Ishmail Jabbie was ready for his round to end.
The Eleanor Roosevelt High school freshman, Prince George’s County’s lone competitor on the final day of the Maryland State Golf Championships at the University of Maryland Golf course, shanked his ball into a pond on the ninth hole and was coming undone. he pulled his drives to the left all afternoon, and shots with his irons were spotty. Even a few putts rimmed out.
After clearing from the fringe of the water, Jabbie approached his sixth shot 30 yards from the hole. the ball disappeared over the crest of the fairway and onto the green. After a pregnant pause, onlookers and Jabbie’s playing partners, cheered: “It’s in!” Worst shot to best in two strokes.
Such is the game of golf. On this particular Wednesday, which began as a beautiful autumn morning and transitioned into a rainy mess, Jabbie was plagued with inconsistency and failed to properly manage the course en route to carding a 92 (46-46). he finished the tournament with a two-day total of 174. Wilde Lake’s Tyler Silberberg shot even-par 71 in each round to win the state title with a two-day total of 142.
“I hit that shot [on nine] and I was thinking ‘I want to get out of here,’ and if it goes in, that’s just golf. There’s a lot of good and bad,” Jabbie said. “I know I could come out here tomorrow and shoot 72 or 73. I’ve just got to get more consistent.”
The 6-foot freshman, who also is a talented basketball player and will try out for Roosevelt’s team now that the golf season is finished, was bothered throughout the day by a left wrist injury he suffered in Monday’s first round. Perhaps that ailment was the reason why he missed so many fairways in regulation. he also lost three balls and didn’t make a birdie. Jabbie, a math junkie, finished with seven bogeys, two double bogeys, two triple bogeys, a quadruple bogey and six pars far more adding than he had hoped.
“I just started unraveling,” he said. “When you stand over the ball and you don’t know where it’s going to go, that’s a bad omen. but it’s a learning experience.”
While his drives were erratic, Jabbie converted a handful of impressive putts, including a 20-footer for par on the par 3 fourth hole. That green proved tricky, as Jabbie was the only member of his group to par the hole. Jabbie had little trouble making putts from the 5- to 10-foot range and also nailed a 15-footer for bogey on the par 3 16th.
“It’s a great experience for him. It’s all a positive learning experience,” said Roosevelt coach Troy Bradbury.
Though Jabbie’s score was uncharacteristically high, he didn’t throw a club or curse at the ball. he played through the poor shots and the pouring rain.
“It really comes from my parents [Ishmail and Isatu]. They always tell me you have to be humble. you could be the best athlete in the world, but if you’re nasty, no one’s going to like you,” he said.
Jabbie will continue to sculpt his golf game mentally and physically throughout the basketball season, but said he favors playing whichever sport is in season.
“I haven’t been playing golf so much during the winter, but if my game is going to step up, I really need to keep practicing,” Jabbie said. “Golf is something you have to work at. Basketball, you won’t play for a while, but you can still come back and do your thing. After a couple shots, you’ve got it back. Golf isn’t like that. you have to keep practicing.”
Wouldn’t you like to hit your drives long and straight every time? if you have a driver that works well for you then you should be able to improve your drives significantly.
However, choosing a driver can be a lot like choosing a putter. There is a lot of choice: Big drivers; Bigger drivers; Square Drivers; Deep Face Drivers; Drivers with adjustable weighting.and so on.
Drivers are not cheap, so you want to be sure of getting the right one. So how do you select a driver that will work for you?
Here are 3 criteria you should bear in mind when you decide to buy a new driver.
Firstly, does it look good? Does it inspire confidence when you address the ball? Does it feel good?
Golf is such a mind game that it is very important that you feel confident. if you like the look and feel of the club it is a big step in the right direction.
Secondly, has it got the right flex for your swing?
There are no standards for flex in a shaft. Regular is not regular – one manufactures R-flex may be the same as another’s S-flex
Cut out the ego
It is not macho to get a super XXX-tour-stiff shaft.unless you can swing at the necessary speeds (well over 100mph)..and not many golfers can
It is also not macho to get a driver with only 8 degrees of loft.unless you are hitting the ball hard enough
How do you think you really look when you have your XXX-tour-stiff 8 degree driver and cannot hit a ball further than 180 yards with it?
So, thirdly, make sure the club has enough loft to get the ball airborne for as long as possible. too little loft and the ball will hit the ground too soon. too much, and it goes too high and comes down too soon.
The general rule is: slow swing = more flex and more loft; fast swing = less flex and less loft
If the right driver is not available off the shelf then you should get the club properly fitted by a custom fitting specialist. Custom fitting should not cost you extra – but it will save you loads on the course as you blast the ball consistently down the middle.
Long and short of it, the selection criteria are:
1. Get a driver you really like the look of.
2. Get a driver with the right flex for your swing speed.
3. Get a driver with the right loft to keep the ball airborne as along as possible.
oh, and before I forget.Don’t break the bank
It is October and it is a great time for golf in Orange County. A little rain to “green things” up. and the courses aren’t as “crazy” as they are in the summer. the last couple courses I have played: Coto de Casa (a litttle warm but a FUN day), Mesa Linda in Costa Mesa. A good little course with some really steep traps. Unfortunately…..I did get more practice than I wanted. But, my Dad would have been proud. he taught me well when it comes to traps!! wish I had picked his brain more about all the great shots he was a master of. Has that ever happened to you? A great lesson to remind us to listen and take notes when you are around the older generation. They have so much knowledge to offer. be more opened to new ideas and not be stubborn. Ha Ha, I wonder if I am writing this for myself OK….back to golf! oh yes.and next week playing Ben Browns ( a great 9 hole course set in the hills of Laguna Beach) and then hopefully Newport Beach Country Club.there are still some great buys on homes on the golf course in Newport Beach, Huntington Beach, Costa Mesa, San Clemente, Rancho Margarita, Coto de Casa, Ladera Beach and all through San Diego and Palm Springs and Palm Desert. Interest rates are still amazing and there are deals out there. if I can do anything to help…..let me know! Thanks, Sue
