Our Betters Think These People Need Nuclear Weapons

From Iran’s leaders:

Oh, and Curt Schilling got fired from ESPN for telling the truth:

schilling-tweet

He has a point, you know, but the politically correct thought police don’t like it. As he says, the numbers do not lie. Consider this difference:

The 1939 population of Germany, according to feldgrau.com was a little over 80.6 million people.

Muslim population worldwide in 2014, according to muslimpopulation.com is 2.08 billion people.

According to my calculation that means at a 5% rate there were about four million Nazis in 1939 and a hundred million radical Muslims last year.

Politico: “The ultimate argument in favor of the Iran deal”

Yeah. That makes as much sense as anything else that’s come out of this White House:

“The agreement would make it easier to bomb Iran, administration officials have told lawmakers.”

U.S. Military Takes Action

Want to bomb Iran? Then support the nuclear deal.
That’s the provocative argument coming from Obama administration officials and other backers of the deal as they promote it before a crucial vote in Congress next month.

In meetings on Capitol Hill and with influential policy analysts, administration officials argue that inspections of Iran’s nuclear facilities under the deal will reveal important details that can be used for better targeting should the U.S. decide to attack Iran.”

‘Hussein Sheikholeslam’ What Kind Of Name Is That?

“Iranian Official: We “Reject the Existence of Any Israeli on This Earth””

Hussein Sheikholeslam

Hussein Sheikholeslam

Hussein Sheikholeslam, a senior adviser to Iran’s Speaker of Parliament, told the Hamas-affiliated newspaper al-Resalah that Tehran “reject[s] the existence of any Israeli on this earth,” a position he says Iran relayed to the P5+1 powers during the nuclear negotiations, The Times of Israel reported Wednesday. According to Sheikholeslam, Iran “will do everything to renew” its support for Hamas, which Tehran lessened in retaliation to the Sunni group’s opposition to the regime of Bashar al-Assad after the outbreak of the Syrian civil war.

Sheikholeslam’s comments are the latest in a series of threats issued against Israel by Iran since the Islamic Republic signed a nuclear agreement with the P5+1 powers last month.”

Great Quote From National Review

“The Obama administration’s nuclear agreement is nothing more than a stimulus package for jihad.”

150822-iran-killing-americans

Iran Is Responsible for More Than 1,000 American Military Deaths Since 9/11

Iranian military action, often working through proxies using terrorist tactics, has led to the deaths of well over a thousand American soldiers in Iraq and Afghanistan over the last decade and a half.

Throughout the course of the Iraq campaign, a variety of weapons flowed into the country through direct purchases by the government of Iran. These included Explosively Formed Penetrators (EFPs), a shaped charge designed to penetrate armor. These weapons – often camouflaged as rocks – were identical to those employed by Hizbullah against Israeli forces. In 2006, the British Telegraph revealed that three Iranian factories were “mass producing” the roadside EFP bombs used to kill soldiers in Iraq . . .

Iran paid Taliban fighters $1,000 for each U.S. soldier they killed in Afghanistan. The Sunday Times reported that a Taliban operative received $18,000 from an Iranian firm in Kabul as reward for an attack in 2010 that killed several Afghan government troops and destroyed an American armored vehicle.”

Menendez Challenges Others To Resist Iran Nuclear Deal

He may like little girls but he does have backbone with this. The ‘Deal’ with Iran is no deal. It is capitulation and it’s based on nothing but a faint hope that the liars will do what they say they might.

“if Iran is to acquire a nuclear bomb, it will not have my name on it”

New Jersey Democratic Senator Bob Menendez announced his opposition to the Iran nuclear deal today in a speech at Seton Hall University.

Menendez laid out his reasons why the deal not only was bad, but also worse than the alternatative. Hope, he said, is not a strategy.

“Whether or not the supporters of the agreement admit it, this deal is based on ‘hope’– hope that when the nuclear sunset clause expires Iran will have succumbed to the benefits of commerce and global integration. Hope that the hardliners will have lost their power and the revolution will end its hegemonic goals. And hope that the regime will allow the Iranian people to decide their fate.

“Hope is part of human nature, but unfortunately it is not a national security strategy….”

“Obama lawyers intervene to protect PLO funds in terrorism cases”

I was going to start the commenting with a hearty ‘Whiskey Tango Foxtrot?’ but we all know what is gioing on and where President Obama’s preferences lie. We have watched him as he armed and funded terror groups in the middle east, gave Iran the pathway to nuclear weapons, and abandoned our ally Israel. Now he has sent lawyers paid by you and me to argue that the PLO shouldn’t have to pay damages for their terror. The courts have already decided that they must but he’s arguing against it after the fact.

It’s sinister and wrong.

In an unusual legal move, the Obama administration has taken the legal side of the Palestinian Authority and Palestine Liberation Organization in a federal court case that American terrorism victims’ families had already won.
Lawyers for the Justice and State Departments are arguing that the PA and PLO should not have to post a bond showing they can pay the massive damages during their appeal in U.S. federal court.
One of the families’ attorneys argued otherwise. “The State Department should stand on the side of the American terror victims and not on the side of the Palestinian suicide bombers,” said Nitsana Darshan-Leitner of the Israel Law Center.
The jury’s judgment against the Palestinian groups came in a case, Sokolow v. PLO, before Manhattan U.S. District Judge George Daniels in February and could involve penalties of more than $650 million, triple the amount of damages awarded by the jury under U.S. law, plus interest.”

They Say A Picture Is Worth A Thousand Words

This is one of the pics that were taken while Bill Clinton and President Obama were playing golf on Martha’s Vineyard. It looks like Clinton wants something really bad and Obama isn’t giving it to him. The body English is striking.

A New, Touchy, Feely FBI:

Of course the Federal Bureau of Investigation is controlled by the Department of Justice. The DOJ was run by Eric Holder and is now run by Obama appointee Loretta Lynch. President Obama has instructed them to be nice to the Islamists.

“FBI to Seek Counseling, Not Handcuffs, for Some Islamic State Suspects”

Counseling will not deter Islamist terror

Counseling will not deter Islamist terror

Federal and local officials working on counterterrorism say the logistical challenges posed by Islamic State’s propaganda—its slick online messages are readily available to anyone—make it difficult to address the problem solely through traditional investigations.

Proponents of the intervention model say it provides a possible “off ramp” from radicalization and addresses a hard truth: The FBI cannot effectively investigate all of the thousands of Americans who are believed to be interested in Islamic State, also known as ISIS.

The challenge is particularly acute for teenage suspects, because the federal criminal justice system is poorly equipped to prosecute minors, officials said.

“Nobody wants to see a 15-year-old kid go to jail if they don’t have to,’’ said one official working on the effort. ”

“Team Obama Goes Full Anti-Semite on Schumer”

chuck schumer jew

Obama and his faithful minions are frustrated that Senator Chuck Schumer does not like the deal John Kerry negotiated with Iran over their nuclear ambitions. They have threatened him with everything they have. The Senate Democrats have told him if he doesn’t change and support the deal they will refuse the political money they have given him in the past.

Now there is a full-court press by the left. The Daily Kos has an article titled, “Chuck Schumer: Religious Extremist and Bigot”. They say the only reason he opposes the deal is his unreasonable support for Israel. He’s Jewish, you see.

JWF has an in-depth article about the anti-Semitic attacks he is seeing.

The vile, angry left is showing their true colors in an ugly display against New York Senator Charles Schumer. This is what happens when you don’t march in lockstep.

Anti-Semitism is all over the drive to make Chuck Schumer shut up about his opposition to the Iran nuke deal.”

Do you think they will get him to change his position? I am no supporter of Senator Schumer but this is no way to run a country. It’s totalitarianism.

State Department: ‘Christians Are Not Important’

crucifiction

This morning there are two related stories in the news. First is this:

“Activists say hundreds of Syrian Christian families flee town as Islamic State fighters near”

Osama Edward, the director of the Christian Assyrian Network for Human Rights in Syria, said “hundreds of families” have fled the Christian town of Sadad toward the government-held central city of Homs and the capital, Damascus.”

Then there is this from the Gatestone Institute:

“U.S. State Dept. Bars Christians from Testifying about Persecution”

During the height of one of the most brutal months of Muslim persecution of Christians, the U.S. State Department exposed its double standards against persecuted Christian minorities.

Sister Diana, an influential Iraqi Christian leader, who was scheduled to visit the U.S. to advocate for persecuted Christians in the Mideast, was denied a visa by the U.S. State Department even though she had visited the U.S. before, most recently in 2012.

She was to be one of a delegation of religious leaders from Iraq — including Sunni, Shia and Yazidi, among others — to visit Washington, D.C., to describe the situation of their people. Every religious leader from this delegation to Washington D.C. was granted a visa — except for the only Christian representative, Sister Diana.”

Save the Muslims, to Hell with the Christians, I guess.

The Lyin’ King

This is called building a straw man. The twerp is trying to connect the GOP to the radical Mullahs in the minds of voters. From the reaction of the audience they think he’s full of crap. They’re right.

This is so petty it’s childish. He is just saying untrue things to get a reaction. He knows it’s untrue yet he says it. It’s the weakest comparison yet.

“Obama: Iran Hardliners ‘Making Common Cause With the Republican Caucus'”

In fact, it’s those hardliners who are most comfortable with the status quo. It’s those hardliners chanting ‘Death to America’ who have been most opposed to the deal. They’re making common cause with the Republican caucus,” said the president of the United States.”

Another Trumpism: “No Black Presidents For A While Because Of Obama”

obama pensive

You and I know he’s right – providing there will be other Presidents. Barack Obama has poisoned the well for black Presidential candidates. It’s a high bar that Dr. Carson must step over.

Chicago saw the same thing with the election of Mayor Washington. He was cheered as a breakthrough but his term was all scandal. Chicagoans universally said that Mayor Daley knew how to steal from the system. Mayor Washington also stole but he was poor at covering his tracks.

If America survives Barack Obama, and if there are still elections, the American people will remember the disaster that was the Obama Presidency.

This is a weak essay from Ryan J. Reilly at the Huffington Post. He thinks he is damning Trump. Americans know otherwise.

“Assailant in Garland, Texas, attack bought gun in 2010 under Fast and Furious operation”

This is from the Chicago Tribune. The link to F&F is a little thin but it’s there:

Nadir Soofi

Nadir Soofi

Five years before he was shot to death in the failed terrorist attack in Garland, Texas, Nadir Soofi walked into a suburban Phoenix gun shop to buy a 9-millimeter pistol.

At the time, Lone Wolf Trading Co. was known among gun smugglers for selling illegal firearms. And with Soofi’s history of misdemeanor drug and assault charges, there was a chance his purchase might raise red flags in the federal screening process.

Inside the store, he fudged some facts on the form required of would-be gun buyers.

What Soofi could not have known was that Lone Wolf was at the center of a federal sting operation known as Fast and Furious, targeting Mexican drug lords and traffickers. The idea of the secret program was to allow Lone Wolf to sell illegal weapons to criminals and straw purchasers, and track the guns back to large smuggling networks and drug cartels.”

Interesting Question: “Nuclear Iran: Is the U.S. Really Suicidal?”

All we have is our powers of observation. What we have observed is that many of the people of the United States do not wish to commit joint suicide. However, we have elected leaders, and they have appointed others, who wish death, suicide if you wish, on America. Mr. Obama and his team promised to fundamentally transform the United States of America. They’re doing it, too.

In order to fundamentally transform you must change the foundations. That necessarily requires demolishing the house, all the way down to the earth it rests on so the rebuilding can begin.

On July 25, 2015, Iran's Supreme Leader (right) sent a tweet of Obama pointing a pistol at his own head.

On July 25, 2015, Iran’s Supreme Leader (right) sent a tweet of Obama pointing a pistol at his own head.

It’s all going swimmingly for them. We can see what they are doing but the why of some of it is still uncertain. Why, for instance, do our leaders demand that terroistic Iran become the new world superpower?

Ponder that for a moment. When the Mullahs in Iran have nuclear weapons they will use them do dominate the entire world. We know that is their goal because they say so. They may not need to evaporate every country. Many will capitulate at the simple threat. But a few million souls will need to be irradiate to show the world the depth of their determination.

At the same time that our leaders are giving Iran the bomb they are making our forces weaker. It does sound like suicide.

“Obama Releases the ‘Unified Agenda’ and the Slide to Hell Begins!”

This is from Investment Watch Blog.

BO has published his “Unified Agenda” report. This is government-speak (Orwellian ‘newspeak’) for “You are f*cked”.

For government wonks–here is the direct link to the BO agenda:

http://www.reginfo.gov/public/do/eAgendaMain

Below is a highlighted version of just some of the “transformation” events that we have left for the next 18 months. It is staggering. America is gone–at least most parts of America that we are familiar.

The basic parts of the constitutional protections that make us America will either be gone or compromised so severely we will not recognize it.

[…]

Due to Obama’s relaxation of border security and immigration enforcement, the nearly 12 million people who have crossed our borders without any type of visa have now been granted quasi-legal protections. Therefore, under 1140-AA08, this massive population is free to import arms and ammunition without any oversight after entering the country.

These rules are bizarre contradictions for an administration whose effort to deny Americans their birthright to bear arms has been a political hallmark. Even before Obama began fighting gun ownership from the White House, he demonstrated unwavering opposition to an Illinois bill that affirmed a person’s right to protect against home invasion using a firearm. Likewise, Eric Holder famously called for Americans to be “brainwashed” into an anti-gun mindset (see video) and led the Justice Department as it conspired to kill the Second Amendment by exploiting the inevitable fallout from Operation Fast and Furious.

While resolute in the effort to disarm Americans, the 2015 Unified Agenda is evidence that both Obama and Holder have for years been simultaneously working to grant illegal immigrants and non-citizens unprecedented access to loosely controlled firearms. To understand these otherwise inexplicable rules, they must be put in context with the policies concerning immigration and trade handed down to Obama from previous presidents.”

General Wesley Clark Proposes Internment Camps For Disloyal Americans

For those of you who haven’t heard this already.

Progressive General Clark Shows his totalitarian side

Progressive General Clark Shows his totalitarian side

Clark was once a four-star General of the US Army. He ran for President in 2004 as a Democrat. He was involved in the siege of the Branch Davidian compound in Waco, Texas.

Like leftists everywhere he couches this argument in a discussion of Islamist terrorists. He does not use the term, ‘Islamic’, though, which leaves his internment camps available to use on anyone the government considers ‘Disloyal’.

This guy is scary. Progressives are the only political group that have ever used internment camps. They are a stain on the history of our country. Now we have this lizard proposing them again.

Let us see who repeats his proposal. The MSNBC host who interviewed him did not object to the idea.

Who would get to decide who is disloyal?

Internment camps. How many times have we been told it would never happen again?

Another From Canadian Bob:

LOCKED OUT OF THE COCKPIT

From a former Navy fighter pilot and a retired UAL Captain

We are all flying on the Germanwings plane, with a twisted pilot at the controls. Will we just wait, and assume the “Crash Position”?

The ‘real’ pilot was locked out of the cockpit.

That set of circumstances finally revealed the full horror of the crash of Germanwings flight 9525. Co-pilot Andreas Lubitz waited for the pilot to leave the cockpit, then locked the door to prevent his re-entry. Then Lubitz, for reasons unknown and perhaps unknowable, deliberately steered the jet into a harrowing 8-minute plunge ending in an explosive 434 mph impact with a rocky mountainside. 150 men, women and children met an immediate, unthinkably violent death.

Lubitz, in his single-minded madness, couldn’t be stopped because anyone who could change the jet’s disastrous course was locked out.

It’s hard to imagine the growing feelings of fear and helplessness that the passengers felt as the unforgiving landscape rushed up to meet them.

Hard … but not impossible.

Because America is in trouble. We feel the descent in the pits of our stomachs.

We hear the shake and rattle of structures stressed beyond their limits. We don’t know where we’re going anymore, but do know it isn’t good. And above all, we feel helpless because Barack Obama has locked us out.

He locked the American people out of his decision to seize the national healthcare system. Locked us out when we wanted to know why the IRS was attacking conservatives. He locked us out of having a say in his decision to tear up our immigration laws, and to give over a trillion dollars in benefits to those who broke those laws.

Obama locked out those who advised against premature troop withdrawals. Locked out the intelligence agencies who issued warnings about the growing threat of ISIS. He locked out anyone who could haveinterfered with his release of five Taliban terror chiefs in return for one U.S. military deserter.

And, of course, Barack Obama has now locked out Congress, the American people, and our allies as he strikes a secret deal with Iran to determine the timeline (not prevention) of their acquisition of nuclear weapons.

Was Andreas Lubitz depressed, insane, or abysmally evil when he decided to lock that cockpit door and listen to no voices other than those in his head? Did he somehow believe himself to be doing the right thing?

The voice recordings from the doomed aircraft reveal that as the jet began its rapid descent, the passengers were quiet. There was probably some nervous laughter, confusion, a bit of comforting chatter with seatmates, followed by a brief period in which anxiety had not yet metastasized into terror.

It was only near the end of the 8-minute plunge that everyone finally understood what was really happening. Only near the end when they began to scream.

Like those passengers, a growing number of Americans feel a helpless dread as they come to the inescapable conclusion that our nation’s decline is an act of choice rather than of chance. The choice of one man who is in full control of our 8-year plunge.

Lubitz was a nutcase. But now we are on a ‘plane’ piloted by a narcissistic megalomaniac who has locked everyone out of his cockpit.

It is very sad that our first African American President will be judged in history as the most inept, corrupt, wasteful, subversive, destructive, and divisive President ever. A man twice elected because of the color of his skin rather that the content of his character.”

“Obama collecting personal data for a secret race database”

This is what is behind the ‘Affirmatively Furthering Fair Housing’ rule. The administration is collecting this data to ensure that they can make communities more racially diverse. But the AFFH will not be the only reason for this database. It will be used to ensure that you comply with directives from the top. Nothing good will come from it.

It’s about race with Obama. It’s always about race – except when it’s about control.

Obama-59-Thumbnail

A key part of President Obama’s legacy will be the fed’s unprecedented collection of sensitive data on Americans by race. The government is prying into our most personal information at the most local levels, all for the purpose of “racial and economic justice.”

Unbeknown to most Americans, Obama’s racial bean counters are furiously mining data on their health, home loans, credit cards, places of work, neighborhoods, even how their kids are disciplined in school — all to document “inequalities” between minorities and whites.

This Orwellian-style stockpile of statistics includes a vast and permanent network of discrimination databases, which Obama already is using to make “disparate impact” cases against: banks that don’t make enough prime loans to minorities; schools that suspend too many blacks; cities that don’t offer enough Section 8 and other low-income housing for minorities; and employers who turn down African-Americans for jobs due to criminal backgrounds.”

Obama Threatens The Press

He came to the press conference in a bad mood. He let it show. Major Garrett held up his hand and Obama barked, “Major Garrett”. Garrett then posed his question. Rather than answering the question he ridiculed it and took Garrett to task for even asking it.

This could put Garrett’s job in jeopardy and lesser journalists know that.

This is an effective way to prevent them from asking tough questions. It is the act of a tyrant.

The press in our country is already too connected to the Obama administration. Rarely do they ask tough questions. This is an example. This was not a tough question. Obama obliterated the asker and made sure others knew he could and would do so to a very respected news man.

His intent was to intimidate – and it worked.
