Obama Fueling Nuclear Proliferation

It must be blatantly obvious to everyone, media excepted, that the Obama administration’s determination for an Iranian nuclear “deal” has nothing to do with whether it is a good deal.

Latest development, and this has to have the Iranian negotiators laughing themselves silly (oh, and our allies concerned) over the smoke and mirrors the administration is showing the American people by pretending that their negotiations are about to come to a fruitful end.

U.S. negotiators are said to have given up ground on demands that Iran be forced to disclose the full range of its nuclear activities at the outset of a nuclear deal, a concession experts say would gut the verification the Obama administration has vowed would stand as the crux of a deal with Iran.

This, after learning a few weeks ago about the existence of a covert underground and fortified nuclear enrichment site. Instead of walking away from talks with a dishonest and belligerent state, they continue to forge ahead with a “deal” that only insures nuclear proliferation in the one country responsible for supporting more terrorist attacks and organizations than any other in the world.

You have to question, who’s side is President Obama on?

For years, most people have assumed that Israel has nuclear weapons or nuclear weapon capability. But neither Israel nor the United States have ever publicly confirmed it. Until now. The Obama administration has declassified, and published, documents going back to the 1980’s that confirm the existence of nuclear weapons capability in Israel.

Why would Obama do that? Two reasons, one of which I mentioned in this post . . .

Imagine watching your enemy and seeing your so-called ally meet up to strike a deal that threatens your very existence. It’s no wonder Netanyahu did what he did. That isn’t showing disrespect for The One. That is sticking up for his country and exposing Obama for the fool in international relations that he is. That’s why he is so upset. And that’s why you can expect the petulant child to double-down and make the world less safe for our best ally in the Middle East, Israel, faster.

The other reason is to excuse Iran for wanting to have a nuclear weapons program, that they already (illegally) have. Now, with the help of our own president, Iran can say, “Israel has one, we feel threatened, so we must have one too.” “To maintain stability” they will argue. And Obama will say, yes, that seems reasonable. (Ignoring Iran’s continual call for the elimination of Israel.) It makes John Kerry’s job so much easier by letting Iran have the nukes they want.

And Obama’s legacy will be marred by mushroom clouds. God help us all.

Obama Caught In Sting

Well, calling it a ‘sting’ is a bit much. That implies that the meeting was arranged by a third party who, in this case, is Israel. From his reaction though, Obama must feel like he was.

What is being reported by the WSJ is that Israel somehow “spied” on the Iran/U.S. nuclear talks. To put it another way, Israel was using due diligence in the defense and security of their country.

Suffice it to say though, keeping an eye on your enemy (Iran) is just a prudent security practice. Especially when that enemy avows, on an almost daily basis, to wipe your country off the map.

Besides eavesdropping, Israel obtained information from confidential US briefings, informants and diplomatic contacts in Europe, the officials told the Journal.  It added that more than the espionage, what irked the White House was the fact that Israel shared inside information with American legislators in a bid to sap support for a deal intended to limit Iran’s nuclear program.

What really irked the administration is that they got caught conspiring with the enemy to cook up a deal that is in violation of current U.N. resolutions. A deal that paves the way for Iran to not only have sanctions lifted, but to give the OK for Iran to develop a nuclear weapon. To make matters even more bizarre, the administration took Iran and Hamas off of the list of terrorist organizations and regimes. No doubt to give the impression that they weren’t doing something absolutely idiotic by letting them have nukes.

That’s how desperate this administration is for a legacy building “deal.” It’s legacy building all right. In a bad way.

Imagine watching your enemy and seeing your so-called ally meet up  to strike a deal that threatens your very existence. It’s no wonder Netanyahu did what he did. That isn’t showing disrespect for The One. That is sticking up for his country and exposing Obama for the fool in international relations that he is. That’s why he is so upset. And that’s why you can expect the petulant child to double-down and make the world less safe for our best ally in the Middle East, Israel, faster.

The Peace Process Illusion

For more than four decades, Americans have waited for “peace in the Middle East.” The reason they’ve expected peace in the Middle East is because the U.N., politicians in Washington, and  the media have us all believing that there actually is a peace process going on. The unrest has been ongoing since the formation of Israel in 1947.

The truth of the matter is, and President Clinton proved the point, that the Islamist half of this phony peace process have more to gain by clubbing Israel from “the process” than they do in having peace. Peace that the Islamists do not want. They want peace without Israel.

In negotiations with Yasir Arafat, the chairman of the P.L.O, Clinton essentially called Arafat’s bluff. Clinton agreed to everything that he asked for. Instead of coming to an agreement and having peace, Arafat walked away and refused to agree to his own demands for peace with Israel.

The controlling political authority in the conflict, Hamas, still has the destruction and elimination of Israel in their charter. There is no way to negotiate that. That is why Netanyahu was right when he said there never would be a so-called two-state solution. Because the Palestinian side is the side that is demanding a one-state solution.

Netanyahu’s clarification was simply to say that he would be for a two-state solution if they had a negotiating partner, including Iran who supports and finances Hamas, that also wanted a two-state solution.  But they don’t. And President Obama has his head up his ass if he thinks peace can be achieved by negotiations when the Islamist side denies Israel’s right to exist. The media is just as irresponsible for giving the president a pass by keeping this story from being told.

The existence of Israel is not negotiable. The reason it is “hard to find a path” toward serious negotiations is not because of the lack of will from Israel. It is because of the lack of will on the part of the Palestinians and their shadow government (Iran) to recognize Israel as a legitimate State. And because of the naïveté of President Obama to pretend that they do.

Too bad President Obama doesn’t have what it takes to come to terms with that very basic fact. He is the one missing the opportunity to bring the parties together. And paling up with the enemy while chastising our ally, Israel, is not even “looking” for a path to realistic peace talks, let alone finding one. And until he does, there will never be peace, and always be a “process.”

Foreign Policy Ameteur Hour

Two years ago, under the Muslim Brotherhood’s Egyptian leadership, the Obama administration was going to sell Egypt F-16 fighter jets and tanks. Then the regime change gave way to a more U.S.-friendly Egyptian administration. Mohamed Morsi was arrested, and Abdel Fattah el-Sisi was elected. And the Muslim Brotherhood was declared the terrorist organization that it is. OK fine.

Two years later, Sec. of State John Kerry, the Obama administration,  is holding up that aid. Kerry said a decision would come “very soon” on the F-16 fighter jets, tanks and other material the Egyptians say they need to combat an extremist threat operating in the Sinai Peninsula and spilling over from lawless Libya.

One would think that it would be in U.S. interest to give Egypt this kind of aid. But wait, Kerry also said he wants to certify Egyptian progress on human rights, democracy and the rule of law. Odd thing to demand of our ally, when demanding no such thing of our enemy, Iran, who routinely tortures, kills, and imprisons political prisoners and Christians every day.

Save Cops, Ban Liberals

It’s been a whole three days since the ATF shelved their idea “at this time” to ban 5.56 ammo used in the most popular rifle in the United States today, the AR-15,

As predictable as the sun rising in the East, Congressional Democrats, not taking no for an answer, are at it again.

In light of the cop shootings in Ferguson, if these Democrats really want to protect cops, like they claim they want to do, then they should call for a ban on Liberals, not bullets.

There is no rash of cop killings, not even one, happening with AR-15 ammo. However, there are murder attempts happening from the racially charged rhetoric from liberals, the race industry, our President and Attorney General.

What’s Another $3 Billion Down The Drain?

It was four years ago that President Obama, through the US Export-Import Bank, extended $3 billion credit to Brazil to finance infrastructure projects and offshore oil drilling. See, he really is for offshore drilling. Just not in his own country.

The money was for Petrobras, Brazil’s state-owned oil company. Essentially, it was for Brazil’s top politicians.

In today’s news, four years later, Petrobras can’t borrow money for a used car. Their credit rating is junk. And it all began four years ago with bribes and kickbacks.

Everything he touches turns to . . . No, it’s not gold. Another Solyndra, another Arab Spring, a new Libya, fall of Iraq, rise of ISIS, jobs for terrorists, nukes for Iran. You name it. And that’s just over there. Over here there is chronic long-term unemployment and falling family incomes. Obama’s wealthy donor friends excepted.

And to think we still have two more years with this wrecking ball in The White House.

Dem Investigators Don’t Want To Investigate

As the famous Church Lady would say . . .church lady isnt that special

Democrats on the House committee investigating the deadly 2012 Benghazi attacks are demanding that the panel’s Republican chairman, Rep. Trey Gowdy, R-S.C, withdraw a subpoena for Hillary Rodham Clinton’s personal emails and schedule a hearing for Clinton to testify immediately.

Now, as has recently been revealed, the former Secretary of State before, during and after the Sept 11 2012 attack in Libya, that resulted in the death of our Ambassador and three other Americans, never used the government email system she was required by law to use, right from the start of her role as Sec. of State.

Never mind all the reasons (and there are plenty) that Hillary would not want her communications to be available for public, and FOIA, scrutiny, but when you are the head of the State Department, your communications having anything to do with the State Department’s Consulate in Benghazi are relevant.

In fact, using then Senator Clinton’s own words, “It is a subject that we are absolutely required to explore.

To think that her mail sever was her own personal mail server, in her house, goes way overboard what the law says about the handling classified information. That in itself is indefensible and, a felony. And reason enough to hold all of her communications on that server under subpoena. The contents of that would be typical Clinton. Making a come-stained blue dress look like child’s play.

That Democrats on the House investigative committee don’t want to do their job is beyond incompetence. It is obstruction. All Hillary’s emails need to see the light of day. Not just the ones she volunteers to turn over.

Talk about bad timing. A convicted felon can not run for public office.  Can you say . . . Elizabeth Warren?

That’s what the Dems on the committee think they are protecting.

Suffering From PTLD?

Now I’m not making any excuses for racism, anywhere, but it is becoming clear that there is a previously undiscovered mental condition, if not political ideology, present in the minds of some people, like Reginald Dogan for example,  who has a penchant for recalling the lynchings of the 1960’s back to the early 19th Century, on an almost daily basis.

It’s one thing to never let us forget how evil some people are, but it is quite another to equivocate that with terrorism today to the point that lynchings become more important. Also, that people talking about the terrorist threat (that would be me) are more dangerous to these people than ISIS and al-Qaeda and Islamic goons in general.

Reginald Dogan . . .

ISIS is no bigger threat than FBI, CIA, FDLE, GOP, YOU.

I’m not a psychiatrist. So I’m not sure exactly what to call it, PTLD (Post Traumatic Lynching Disorder) or maybe LDS (Lynching Derangement Syndrome). Whatever it is, it is pretty powerful. Powerful enough to turn a blind eye to what we face today. And by “we” I mean everyone. Of all races.

This disorder manifests itself in denial of reality. In this way:

Alicia Pepper . . .

Not taking anything away from the Holocaust but lynchings & The killing of innocent blacks happened on our own soil. It is still happening on our own soil. I see innocent AMERICAN CITIZENS being murdered as a huge domestic issue. Isis can wait.

911OK, here’s the reality as best I could find from statistics provided by the Tuskegee Institute and The Religion of Peace.

  • terrorist attacks by these Islamist goons are happening “on our own soil.”
  • From 1972 to present, 3102 Americans have been killed by terrorists in 74 attacks on our own soil.
  • Since 1968, zero lynchings have occurred on our own soil.
  • From 1882 to 1968, there were 3445 lynchings of Blacks, 1297 of Whites.

ISIS can wait? For what?

This syndrome, whatever it is, is something that HHS and maybe even our President should look into and address. Anything that takes our eye off of our enemy is a good thing, for the enemy.

Race, Democrats, And The Hook

If you’ve ever tried to engage in an informed debate on race in America, you will quickly learn how intolerant or unwilling some people can be.  The trick is in finding someone willing to have a discussion on race in (as President Obama put it in July 2010), “a truthful, mature, and responsible way, the divides that still exist.”

Given a little curiosity, there is a lot to learn about our history. And by “our” I mean American, in this post, History Of Civil Rights, Republicans And Democrats. My contribution to “Black History Month.” The plethora of documented and sourced material in there totally debunks the lie that the GOP of today is, or was, the lynchers, slave owners, and segregationists of Blacks. Something that needs to be done if there ever is to be an honest airing of the race grievance community with the goal of actually reaching the “post-racial” America that our first Black president said he would be a part of.

Picking an educated Black man (Reginald Dogan), who used to write for the local newspaper, and who constantly reminds us of our horrible racial past, seemed to me to be the right place to begin this discussion.

Suffice it to say, the Democrat party has set a hook so deep into the hearts and minds of the majority of Blacks that the discussion Barack Obama says we need to have has become impossible (at least with the person I hoped to engage), as shown by this attempt. Which was reinforced by another and current writer (Troy Moon) for the local newspaper. You know, the people we’re supposed to look up to as being smart, relevant, and impartial.

Of course, their level of intolerance and selective interpretation of “free speech” is nothing new.  It’s who they are. But that’s not going to stop me from trying to reach out to save the savable. And it shouldn’t stop you either.

Commenting on Reggie’s post of lynchings from Southern States in the 19th and 20th centuries, the first comment from a reader was,  “Reginald – don’t look now but it’s 2015!” Continue reading Race, Democrats, And The Hook

Democrats, Poor, Caught By Surprise?

As a Democrat legislator, how can you be caught by surprise by the fine that Obamacare levies on taxpayers for not buying a government-approved health insurance policy when, it was all Democrats and only Democrats who voted for it?

It is obvious that they did not read their own law that they voted for.  It is also obvious that the sheeple in their party followed them blindly down the same path.

It is obvious too that there would have been no surprise about the tax penalty if the media had done its job.

All this could have been avoided if they opened their eyes and maybe, read this, Obamacare Fines, For Poor People Only, from October 2013.
