Debate 2016: Iran Nuclear Deal

What Hillary Clinton said in response to Donald Trump’s comment about the Iran nuclear deal being a disaster, was one of the highlights, or lowlights, of the night. Given the magnitude for disaster that nuclear weapons pose, so much was said by Clinton that contradicts her claim to being fit for duty as our President.

Speaking of Iran and the “Deal,” Hillary Clinton said . . .

“They had built covert facilities.”

True.

Barack Obama, herself, and John Kerry “got a deal that put a lid on Iran’s nuclear program.”

False. First of all, the so-called “lid” is temporary (10 yrs.), after that they can do whatever the hell they want. The “lid” is gone. The deal also presumes that Iran won’t cheat during that 10 yr. timeframe.  From the country that “had built covert facilities,” why would we think Iran might cheat? They’ll still have their nuclear weapons whether they cheat or not.

“Nuclear weapons pose the number one threat we face in the world. And it becomes particularly threatening if terrorists ever get their hands on nuclear weapons.”

Iran is the largest State sponsor of terror and terrorists in the world. Led by Mullahs who chant ‘death to America, the Great Satan’ and death to Israel. “Threatening” (to quote Hillary Clinton) to us, Israel, and our allies in the Middle East. The Iran Deal paves the way for them to achieve the nuclear status they want. And it isn’t for producing electricity. This deal is the nuclear proliferation that she claims she does not want. In other words, it’s not good if Japan or South Korea have them, but it’s just fine if Iran does?

And here’s the kicker, the Deal was . . .

“Very successful in gaining access to Iranian facilities that we never had before.”

This is very telling, in how weak a deal it is just so President Obama, John Kerry, and Hillary Clinton can say that they made one. It’s from the very same perspective that they say our Southern border has never been as secure as it is today.

They caved to Iran on “anytime anyplace” inspections. That was one of the conditions Obama bragged about. (Remember him bragging about Obamacare, none of which has come to fruition?) But true to form, Iran stuck to their guns, and Kerry caved to the point that, not only are there no anytime anyplace inspections, but there are nuclear facilities that are “off limits” to independent inspectors. What could go wrong with a deal like that?

And who will stop Iran from using their nuclear weapons capacity? Won’t be the United States. According to the deal, we have to protect Iran’s nuclear facilities. According to the deal that she, Kerry, and Obama have made, if Israel finds it necessary to act on their own for their own national security, it will be the U.S. who will protect Iran’s nuclear facilities. That means fighting against our ally and protecting this terrorist State. And that makes sense to who? To Barack Obama, who’s mission is building his legacy, even if it is fake, built on lies and naiveté.

Continuing to lie to the American people, like her former boss does, when the American people are trying to decide on their next president, is Hillary Clinton’s most “qualifying” moral trait.

Clinton-Obama Give ‘Aid and Comfort’

I don’t know. You’ll have to decide if Hillary Clinton is nuts or just crazy?

You know what “aid and comfort” to terrorists (that would be Iran) is? Giving billions of dollars in cash to Iran, the largest state sponsor of terror in the world. Hamas and Hezbollah really appreciate it. Hillary Clinton, Barack Obama, and John Kerry (who served in Vietnam) should be prosecuted for it.

She had a 4 question (from 4 female reporters)10 minute “presser” on the tarmac. What this show is about is blaming Trump (candidate for 1 year) for the terrorist attacks over the last 7 years. They’re not about to accept responsibility for their incompetence in fighting ‘Islamic terrorism.’ A term that they can not even say. And the reason they can’t say it is because they haven’t a clue how to stop it.

Deadliest July In Chicago

65 people killed in Chicago in July, a toll that pushed the number of homicides in the city this year to nearly 400.  The total for all last year was 490. By comparison, total U.S. casualties in Operation Enduring Freedom for this year is 5.

It was the deadliest July since 2006, when 65 homicides were also recorded, according to Chicago Police Department records.  Police Superintendent Eddie Johnson noted that the month was still lower than June, when 72 homicides were reported.

That was for July. In less than a week for August, between last Friday afternoon and early Thursday, at least 99 people were shot in the city, 24 of them fatally.  At least nine people were killed on Monday alone, the deadliest day in Chicago in 13 years, according to Tribune data. Among the wounded that day was a 10-year-old boy shot in the back as he played on his front porch in Lawndale. That’s a 4:1 shoot/kill ratio.

Here’s a stunning statistic for you to ponder.  40 of the weekend’s shooting victims had been arrested 672 times.

Those killed over the weekend included 23-year-old Abner Garcia, an Army veteran with no criminal history, and 19-year-old Arshell Dennis, a college student whose father was a police officer. On Sunday, a 6-year-old girl became the third child under 10 to be shot in the past week, and a pregnant woman was shot in her chest.

When and how will it end? It won’t end until Democrats own up to the destructive nature that their feel-good social engineering is having on poor people; Black, White, and everywhere in between. Patrick Smith, the father of the  armed thug who was shot this weekend in Milwaukee, got one part of  the problem right when he said . . .

“Being on the street, doing things of the street life: Entertaining, drug dealing and pimping and they’re looking at their dad like ‘he’s doing all these things.’ I got out of jail two months ago, but I’ve been going back and forth in jail and they see those things so I’d like to apologize to my kids because this is the role model they look up to. When they see the wrong role model, this is what you get.”

If you believe that giving illegal aliens a drivers licenses will save innocent victims from their DUI and hit-and-runs, then I have a suggestion for cities like Chicago where gun violence is so prevalent. If just one innocent life could be saved . . .  Innocent lives would be spared if the thugs had better marksmanship skills with their illegal guns. If, through proper weapons training, we could get their efficiency closer to 1:1 than 4:1, then that little 6- yr-old girl would be alive today. It’s a win-win.

Khizr Khan, Rebuttal

The 15 minutes of fame for Khizr Khan has passed. The mainstream media, and their political party are not done milking it as the big distraction though. Whatever! They, and the Clinton campaign, will do anything to draw the attention away from their flawed, lying, unqualified, and dangerous candidate and onto Donald Trump.

To mark the end of the Khizr Khan’s DNC speech (aka Trump Attack), it is necessary to finally address it.

“If it was up to Donald Trump, he never would have been in America.”

Gold Star father’s demagogic lie. The Khans immigrated here, decades ago, and legally. They were not scooped up and brought here like bales of hay. Trump only wants inhabitants of terrorist hotbed countries to stay in place, in safe zones within their own countries or nearby, so they can return home when the war is over, or until such time as a safe, and real, vetting process is in place.

“Donald Trump consistently smears the character of Muslims.”

Gold Star father’s demagogic lie. Trump calls out Islamic terrorists for what they are, terrorists. Only if Khizr Khan believes that all Muslims are terrorists could his attack on Trump be true. And Trump does not believe that. Maybe Khan does?

“He disrespects other minorities — women, judges, even his own party leadership.”

More political and demagogic rhetoric. Par for the course. Mr. Khan forgets the he isn’t the only American who has a 1st Amendment right. The “judge” of Mexican heritage Trump spoke of has his own biases on illegal immigration built-in, both in practice and otherwise.

“He vows to build walls and ban us from this country.”

Again, another attack based on a false narrative, on national television, at the political event. Typical “red meat” kind of rhetoric one would expect from a political hack like Debbie Was-a-man Shultz or Khizr Khan. Let’s be clear about the Syrian refugees. They are not coming here in boats, airplanes, or swimming across the ocean to get to America. If you ask them, they will tell you that they want to stay there and to go back home as soon as they can. But no,  they are being picked up like low-hanging fruit (and undocumented democrats) and brought here, by the thousands. Terrorists among them.

“Donald Trump, you are asking Americans to trust you with our future. Let me ask you: Have you even read the U.S. Constitution? I will gladly lend you my copy. In this document, look for the words “liberty” and “equal protection of law.””

Can’t speak for his copy of the Constitution, but my copy also says, above all else and, in the first sentence, called the Preamble, exactly what Donald Trump (and most Americans) wants to do. Look for the words “insure domestic Tranquility” and “provide for the common defense.” There is no liberty or equal protection for terrorists. Foreign or domestic. Similarly, the U.S. Constitution does not apply to inhabitants of Syria, Yemen, Tunisia, Somalia, Libya, Algeria, Nigeria, Sudan, or anywhere else and anyone else who is not a U.S. citizen.

“Have you ever been to Arlington Cemetery? Go look at the graves of the brave patriots who died defending America — you will see all faiths, genders, and ethnicities.”

More of the same demagogic rhetoric that fails to distinguish between regular Americans and those who want us dead. It’s what elected Democrats and Hillary Clinton do.

Khizr Khan has no immunity from reprisals for spreading lies about Donald Trump just because he is a Gold Star father. His son fought and died for our country. His son fought against the kind of Islamic extremism that Donald Trump will fight against for us, as President. To keep us, not terrorists, safe.

By his statements at the Democratic National Convention, what Khizr Khan is doing, and continues to do, aside from baseless attacks on Donald Trump, is to advocate on the side of the terrorists that killed his son. And that remains his cross (no pun intended) to bear.

Orlando Was An Attack On America

After the terrorist attack in Orlando, liberals from President Obama on down jumped on guns as the problem. Their reaction is full of emotion and, disconnected from the problem, which is terrorism. Not a gun. It is a “crisis” this administration will not let go to waste. And so came the bogus attacks at Florida Senator Greg Evers (R-2), candidate to replace retiring Rep. Jeff Miller (R-1), for a contest in support of our 2nd Amendment right to keep and bear arms to give away the most popular rifle sold in America, an AR-15. Critics said he was being disrespectful to the victims and families of that attack. When in fact, ignoring the attack for what it was is disrespectful to the victims and families of that attack.

In reality, we are all victims of that attack, you might say ‘once removed.’ In solidarity, and humanity, I pray for those victims and their families. I also pray for a leader who will fight terrorism. Not the Founding Fathers.

That was an attack on America. And to blame it on guns, and in Obama’s case, to blame it on freedom and liberty too, just adds insult to injury. And because of that, the 2nd Amendment is under fire (no pun intended). No. The response is, Obama’s failure to prosecute the war on terror has made us victims in our own cities. And the pressure belongs on him and Democrats. Not on Republicans, the National Rifle Association, or Greg Evers.

Evers’ campaign gimmick perfectly illustrates this disconnect and, brings a dose of reality to both attacks. The ongoing attack on the Bill of Rights, and the ongoing terrorist threats and attacks from ISIS and related Islamic Extremists. And the latter is not just on Americans. It’s on the whole world who are not ‘believers’ in their brand of Islam.

Obama says he wants to change laws to ‘fix’ this. The law he needs to change is Sharia. The laws he wants to change is our Bill of Rights, which are God-given. Says a lot about him. To focus on guns as the problem, as the administration is doing, is the huge miss-direction from the problem.

It is Obama’s policies, restrictions, that he has imposed on the FBI and DHS that makes preventing attacks like Ft. Hood, San Bernardino, Boston, Orlando, and others more difficult. It is his CVE (Countering Violent Extremism) program. The one that excludes common sense from the task of combating terrorism. Because of that, Obama is more responsible for the advance of terrorism around the world, and for terror attacks on our soil, than any inanimate object.

The rage over the Orlando attack needs to be focused on the problem, the failures of the Obama administration, not a gun.

The above, published in today’s edition of the Pensacola News Journal, was a response to the push-back that a Florida Senator Greg Evers (R-2) got for holding an AR-15 giveaway contest.

Obama: Liberty, Freedom Caused Orlando

That President Obama took the memorial as his occasion to push gun control is bad enough and, an insult to the victims and families.

Deflecting his weakness in combating the war on terror, which is what this terrorist attack was, to the gun control agenda is all he had the courage to do. Deflecting a terrorist attack to a gun debate,  he said “This debate needs to change.”

But it is much worse. Listen to him. He is equating liberty and freedom with this terrorist attack. That your liberty, your freedom, the Constitution, is what made this and makes acts of terror possible! That your liberty and freedom “requires” terrorist attacks.

OBAMA:  This debate needs to change.  It’s outgrown the old political stalemates.  The notion that the answer to this tragedy would be to make sure that more people in a nightclub are similarly armed to the killer defies common sense. . . . Why it is that we think our liberty requires these repeated tragedies?  That’s not the meaning of liberty. . . .  If we don’t act, we will keep seeing more massacres like this, because we’ll be choosing to allow them to happen.

Never before in American history have we had a president so unwilling to protect and defend the Constitution and the people of the United States.

The truth about Obama is, he never intended on keeping his oath. He gave that up when he declared he was going to fundamentally change America.

White House Admonishes Israel, Again

After two Palestinians killed 4 diners in a Tel Aviv restaurant and wounding others before being caught alive, the New York Times writes about how Israelis find solidarity in the aftermath of the attack.

The mainstream media isn’t covering the attack. But The State Department made a statement about it. Deputy Spokesperson Mark C. Toner made it clear how the administration feels about the attack and how if feels about Israel’s response to it.

He made it clear that the United States did not share the solidarity subsequent to that attack that Israelis are feeling. Instead, he admonished Israel five times to not over-react. Not to “escalate tensions any further.” Translation, leave them to fight another day. 

This is – I think a couple thoughts on that is – one is that we would just hope that any measures that Israel takes would be designed to not escalate tensions any further. But we certainly respect their desire to express outrage and to protect the safety of their people.

I think what I’m trying to say, Arshad, is that we understand the Israeli Government’s desire to protect its citizenry, or its citizens rather, after this kind of terrorist attack, and we strongly support that right. But we would hope that any measures it takes are designed to – would also take into consideration the impact on Palestinian citizens, or civilians rather, who are just going – trying to go about their daily lives.

And why I prefaced my response by saying that we understand their desire to protect their citizens and to send a message, but we would only urge that any measures that it takes be done under – with the consideration towards the many innocent Palestinians who are simply trying to go about their daily lives.

I think ultimately, first of all, that’s something for the Israeli Government to ultimately decide about, decide on. I’m just simply trying to give a full sense of the dynamics here, which are that this is going to affect thousands of Palestinian civilians who are, again, just trying to go about their daily lives.

Said, again – and let me be very clear – we condemn yesterday’s attack. We completely understand the right of Israeli authorities to ensure the security of their civilians and to carry out measures that they believe will, in fact, provide for that security. I would simply caution – and we’ve said this before – that in carrying out those kinds of measures that they do take into consideration the impact on innocent Palestinians and that they exercise restraint.

Exactly the wrong response to an ally responding to acts of war from a country, or territory, with an elected government that refuses to recognize Israel’s right to exist and, wants them dead.  They are no longer renegade terrorists. They are a duly elected terrorist state that has been (with Iran’s help) lobbing missiles at Israel and using suicide bombers for decades. The Palestinian people are the ones who elected Hamas. They have democratically and simultaneously picked their fight and chose their fate. To make matters worse, which explains the administration’s adversarial attitude towards Israel, the United States has been and still is giving $400 million a year to the terrorist government in Gaza, Hamas.

Have you heard similar admonitions of France or Belgium after they were attacked? That the Obama administration is on the wrong side of the war on terror is not even debatable. The mere fact that Raqqa, the ISIS capital, has not been leveled two years ago, and their oil assets were not attacked (pin pricked as they were) until Donald Trump called them on it, is all the evidence you need to come to that conclusion. And that’s if you don’t count the previous post.

It’s Obama’s Failure, Not Guns

Since the Orlando terrorist attack last weekend, the Obama theme ‘not to let a crisis go to waste’ has kicked in.

Don’t fall for this meme.

With Republicans and the National Rifle Association gun lobby under pressure to respond to the worst mass shooting in modern U.S. history, Trump said he would meet with the NRA to discuss ways to block people on terrorism watch or no-fly lists from buying guns.

No. The response is, Obama’s failure to prosecute the war on terror has made us victims in our own cities. And the pressure belongs on him and Democrats. Not on Republicans and the National Rifle Association.

  • His failure to protect our borders.
  • His failure to enforce immigration laws,
  • his releasing of GITMO prisoners to return to the battlefield,
  • his insistence on scooping up thousands of Syrian refugees to bring them here, some of who are and will be (according to his own security apparatus) terrorists embedded among them.
  • His failure to keep tabs on terrorists he had his hands on, like the Boston bombers, the Fort Hood shooter, the San Bernardino shooters, and the Orlando shooter. All terrorists, all on the FBI’s radar, all on their list, and all let go. Credit Obama’s CVE program for that.
  • His plan to fight Islamic extremism is not to investigate Islamic extremism. That’s his program called the Countering Violent Extremism program.
  • And the media doesn’t ask why.

And that doesn’t even include giving Iran $1.5 Billion dollars to fund Hamas and Hezbollah and to expand their nuclear weapons program, or funding the Palestinian Authority and Hamas with hundreds of thousands of dollars each year, so they can attack Israel.

To deflect his failure to keep us safe, his response, is the same as Tyranny-vs-Libertyalways. Not to let a crisis go to waste. That’s what this is about. In this case, he makes the case for taking away our rights to defend ourselves, a constitutional right, for his inability to protect us from terrorism. In other words, to protect us from the terrorist invasion that he is creating, his response is to disarm law-abiding citizens. This might makes sense if you are a Mullah in Iran, or an ISIS terrorist. But it does make sense to Barack Hussein Obama.

Besides all that, there is no constitutional right to fly on an airplane. There is a constitutional right to protect oneself with a firearm. In fact, the right was intended to protect oneself from a tyrannical government. Not a deer or a duck. And never has this been as imperative since the forming of the Bill of Rights when we broke from the tyrannical Crown of King George III.

UPDATED: 6/16/2016, Countering Violent Extremism program added, explains our ineptness in fighting terrorism here.

Sec. Kerry Syrian Failure

In response to 140 Syrians killed by ISIS suicide bombers, Sec. of State John Kerry (who served in Vietnam) is touting what is being called a “provisional agreement” for a ceasefire.

One caveat. It’s not likely to be signed by all parties (Russia, Syria, and the U.S.) and if signed, is even less likely to be enforced.

ISIS isn’t part of this provisional agreement. Makes for a great photo-op though.

Black Islamist Shoots White Cop

Officer Jessie Hartnett, shot by a guy who said he did it in support of Islam, is a hero by any measure. Despite being shot at point blank range, and hit 3 times in an arm, Officer Hartnett called for backup then got out of his car and chased the POS and shot him. Keeping him from getting away while his backup collard him. Within minutes, President Obama got on television and gave this sobering statement, ” .” Yeah, that’s right. Not a peep out of him, his Attorney General, or the head of the FBI.

They are, no doubt, working on their “message” before going public. Translation; how can we blame anyone but the perp (except the liberal-progressive Democratically-controlled city), distance Islam from it, politicize it by tying it to the Democratic candidates’ gun control agenda, and make the American people believe it?

hartnett ambushed

And to top it off, the idiotic mayor of Philadelphia, goes on TV to say that what we saw was not what we saw, and what we heard (from the perp) was not what we heard. It’s a double whammy against the liberal agenda, which resides in a perpetual state of denial. Deny that Islam has anything to do with terrorism and attacks like this, and two, they just can’t find any room to support police.

This is soooo not in keeping with the liberal meme. Black man shoots White cop. Not just any Black man. This Black man was inspired, and empowered, by radical Islam. Like it or not, believe it or not, this is a segment of the population that is more susceptible to radicalization than other demographics. Especially those in prison. Unfortunately, the perpetual state of denial that the political left is in means we can expect to see more of this kind of attack on our police.
