Obama Didn’t Require Iranian Leaders Sign Nuke Deal Because It Is Not “Legally Binding”…

I love this part: “The success of the JCPOA will depend not on whether it is legally binding or signed, but rather on the extensive verification measures we have put in place.” Are those verification procedures a part of the ‘Non-Binding’ agreement? If so, they are ‘Non-Binding’ as well.


President Obama didn’t require Iranian leaders to sign the nuclear deal that his team negotiated with the regime, and the deal is not “legally binding,” his administration acknowledged in a letter to Representative Mike Pompeo (R., Kan.) obtained by National Review.

“The Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) is not a treaty or an executive agreement, and is not a signed document,” wrote Julia Frifield, the State Department assistant secretary for legislative affairs, in the November 19 letter.


“The success of the JCPOA will depend not on whether it is legally binding or signed, but rather on the extensive verification measures we have put in place, as well as Iran’s understanding that we have the capacity to re-impose — and ramp up — our sanctions if Iran does not meet its commitments,” Frifield wrote to Pompeo.

RevAl: “Invite A Muslim To Thanksgiving Dinner”

Should you say grace before eating? What if you’re having ham? Or wine?

reval muslim thanksgiving

Today, when so many children, elderly, women and families are fleeing the devastation and horror in Syria and elsewhere, we cannot turn our backs on them, nor can we succumb to fear and panic. Let us remember Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s words:

“The ultimate measure of a man is not where he stands in moments of comfort and convenience, but where he stands at times of challenge and controversy.”

Happy Thanksgiving and in Jesus’ name, invite a Muslim to your table if you can.”

H/T to Weasel Zippers


We definitely need more of this sort of thing!

Here is a nice, pre-holiday, feel-good story for you.

A recent suicide bombing in southern Syria shows the rivalry between Al Qaeda and ISIS is more than just a contest to see who can kill the most infidels — the groups are using classic terror techniques on each other.

The Nov. 15 bombing came at a top-level meeting of the Yarmouk Martyrs Brigade, a key ISIS militia known for its bloody and vicious hold over parts of the Golan Heights. Six of the group’s top men were killed, including Muhammad “Abu Ali” al-Baridi, the shadowy head of the group who went by the nickname “The Uncle.”

Al Nusra Front, Al Qaeda’s Syrian affiliate, quickly took credit, gloating on Twitter about the “heroic” attack.

Obama is right! The pending climate conference is really putting the pressure on them.

I’m Surprised Obama Didn’t Think Of This



Newly elected Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau is determined to bring a mess of Syrian refugees to Canada and he’s not wasting any time. Today it was announced that he has decided that Canadian military forces must move out of their housing to make room for the little angels.

canadian troop moves out

Soldiers and military personnel at a Kingston, Ont. base are being asked to clear their barracks to make room for an early wave of Syrian refugees arriving in just over a week, CTV News has learned.

Multiple residences at CFB Kingston are being cleared for Nov. 30 to house the refugees, according to an internal memo obtained by CTV News.

The orders will also affect some officer cadets attending the Royal Military College, many of whom are nearing exams.”

Let’s check in at the Scandi paradise

In Sweden, the self proclaimed “moral superpower”, things are a bit messy.

A tranquil Swedish village has been torn apart by bitter tensions after the arrival of 20 refugee families, MailOnline can reveal.

Tärnsjö, 150km north of Stockholm, has become a hotbed of resentment where migrant children as young as five need a police escort to get to school.

Residents and newcomers have exchanged insults, thrown rocks and set fire to cars, leaving many on both sides scared to leave the safety of their homes.
In the last few months, with 10,000 asylum seekers arriving a week, the country has reintroduced border controls and the anti-immigrant Sweden Democrats has become the second largest party in Sweden, opinion polls show.

Instead Tärnsjö, a relatively small village with a population of 1,200, is a snapshot of those places where bubbling anger has spilled over into violence and arson.

I guess the folks of Tärnsjö aren’t feeling culturally enriched by the diversity fairy, huh? Nobody tell Bernie Sanders. He is just sure that Scandinavia is the Big Rock Candy Mountains.

“This Top Democrat Vows to Push New Gun Controls in 2016”


Chuck Schumer, who sleeps next to a life-sized cutout of Barack Obama, has brilliantly decided that now is the time, with Republicans in control of both houses of Congress, to introduce new gun control legislation.


One of the Senate’s top Democrats has promised to renew a push to pass sweeping gun control legislation in 2016.

At an event sponsored by the Brady Center to Prevent Gun Violence, Sen. Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., announced that Senate Democrats will “bring a universal background check bill to the floor of the Senate early next year.”

Schumer’s pledge Friday comes as Senate Democrats take aim at illegal gun sales and background check loopholes. Schumer and his colleagues launched the new effort for comprehensive gun control after the mass murder at an Oregon community college earlier this year.”

How to Make War


Franz Joseph I, the emperor of Austria-Hungary, didn’t much care for his nephew, the heir presumptive to the Austro-Hungarian throne. The Archduke Franz Ferdinand was next in line for the crown after Franz Joseph’s only son had committed suicide. The emperor disliked Franz Ferdinand for several reasons but primarily because he had taken a non-royal wife. The emperor would have preferred that Franz Ferdinand’s younger cousin, Charles I, be the heir apparent, but rules were rules and the Hapsburgs were dedicated to their rules.

While attending a ball in Prague in 1894, Franz Ferdinand met Countess Sophie Chotek. Sophie was a countess but that wasn’t good enough to marry into the Imperial House of Habsburg. Despite his objection, the emperor allowed the marriage and Franz Ferdinand married his love. That meant, however, that marriage would be morganatic and that the children born of the marriage would not have succession rights to the throne. Sophie could never be empress. For the rest of her days, Sophie was snubbed and ignored by the House of Hapsburg.

On June 28, 1914, Franz Ferdinand and Sophie were in Sarajevo to inspect royal troops. Members of the Bosnian Serb Black Hand Society, including, Gavrilo Princip, were also there. They planned to kill the archduke and, somehow, free Bosnia from Austrian rule.

They were, however, inept as assassins. When Ferdinand’s open top car passed the first assassin, he threw an improvised grenade at the archduke’s car. He missed his aim, the grenade bounced off of the car and rolled into the crowd gathered and detonated. Several people were wounded. The archduke’s driver sped away denying the other assassins their shot at a clean kill.

After Ferdinand and Sophie arrived at their destination, the archduke decided he would visit the hospital where those wounded by the errant grenade were being treated. They returned to the car and their driver started out for the hospital.

On the way, the diver turned down a road that was blocked. He put the car in reverse and began slowly backing down the street to find and alternate route. Inside a nearby coffee shop, a stunned Gavrilo Princip – who had given up any hope of an assassination that day – looked up and saw what fate had brought before him. Princip snatched his pistol from his pocket, ran into the street, jumped on the running board of the car and shot Ferdinand and Sophie at point-blank range. Their wounds were fatal.

The word was quickly sent back to Vienna and the wheels of history began grinding. The July Crisis began. In Vienna, the Council of Joint Ministers debated Austria-Hungary’s course of action. Truth be told, the emperor was relieved. With the irritating Franz Ferdinand out of the way, his favorite nephew was the new heir apparent. The emperor directed his staff to deal with the assassination, sent a stand-in to attend the funeral in his place, and returned to his holiday in the Alps that was already underway.

When he returned to Vienna, the emperor learned that his ministers had prepared a harsh set of ten demands for Serbia. The emperor felt that they were overly aggressive, but agreed to the terms and the demands were sent to Belgrade. Serbia accepted all but one of the terms and, as stated would happen, Austria-Hungary declared war on Serbia.

Now the chain reaction began: In response to Vienna’s declaration of war on Serbia, Russia declared war on Austria-Hungary. Germany came to the defense of her ally in Vienna by declaring war on Russia. Bound by treaty of mutual defense with Russia, France and Great Britain declared war on Germany. Italy, seeing an opportunity to claim borderlands in the Alps, declared war on Austria-Hungary. In August of 1914, the bloodbath began.

During the course of the war, the United States and Japan were also dragged in. At the end of the fighting in 1918, the Austro-Hungarian Empire had ceased to exist, its emperor in exile. The Russian Empire had ceased to exist, its royal family executed. The German Empire had ceased to exist, the Kaiser in exile. Italy, Germany and Japan were soon to become fascist states. The Great War, the war to end all wars, had set the table for the next and even more terrible serving: World War II.

World War II ended the lives of 100 million and cast all of eastern Europe into a dictatorial darkness that didn’t end until 1989 and 1990. The events associated with a wrong turn, a car in reverse, an assassin in the right place at the right time and the death of an archduke that nobody really cared about started in motion a chain of events that killed untold millions and changed history forever.

Remember this comedy of errors and misjudgment as you contemplate Russians, Turks, Syrians, NATO, ISIS and the United States operating in the Levant. It is easy to cry havoc and let slip the dogs of war. It is very, very difficult, however, collar them once they are running free.


Huma Abedin Weiner Says Clinton Campaign “Committed To Bringing Syrian Refugees Here”


“Iran’s stockpile of enriched uranium has actually grown, despite the nuclear deal”

Is someone actually surprised by this? I suppose President Obama and John Kerry will claim to be shocked, shocked, I say. That is if they even acknowledge this report.

khameini laughing

Iranian leaders scoffed at the claims made by the Obama administration about this nuclear deal. Obama told everyone that it was a good deal, that Iran would not be allowed to continue to pursue nuclear weapons. The Mullahs just laughed at him. They had and have no intention of doing what Obama or anyone else says.

Iran’s stockpile of low-enriched uranium has increased in the past three months even though Tehran is supposed to reduce it significantly under a deal with major powers, the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) determined in a confidential report Reuters saw on Wednesday afternoon.

Iran has also started to dismantle uranium enrichment centrifuges at its Natanz and Fordow nuclear facilities, the IAEA report states. Under the deal with major powers reached in July, Iran is supposed to reduce the number of centrifuges it has in operation.”

A Russian rescue helicopter has been shot down by Syrian rebels while searching for pilots missing after Turkey downed a Russian jet.

The helicopter was forced to make an emergency landing in a government-held area in Syria’s Latakia province.

A Syrian insurgent group, which uses U.S. Tow missiles, said its fighters hit the helicopter with an anti-tank missile.

Video footage has emerged online appearing to show the helicopter after it crashed in dense woodland.

Plumes of smoke can be seen coming from the aircraft.

Vladmir Putin earlier warned Turkey of “significant consequences” after the Russian plane was shot down.

This Is What Happens When You Make Moonbats King

Sweden is being overrun by young men from the middle east, Swedish women and children are being raped, and this lizard is concerned about the amount of energy used to make hot water for a bath.

King Carl XVI of Sweden

King Carl XVI of Sweden

The King of Sweden has called for a ban on baths to help save the environment.

King Carl XVI Gustaf, who once had a reputation as a lothario and is now a staunch environmentalist, said he realised how much water and energy they used when he was recently staying somewhere without a shower.

The 69-year-old ‘green king’ told Swedish newspaper Svenska Dagbladet: ‘It hit me how much water and energy it used.

‘I thought “I can’t believe I’m having to do this”. I felt quite ashamed.’

Got This From Canadian Bob…

… I can’t figure out why they used a narrator with a non-American accent. I have no doubt it’s true.


You are on the list? No guns for you!


In the US, people on the government’s terrorist watch list can own and possess weapons.

People on the U.S. government’s terrorist watch list can walk into a gun store and legally buy pistols and powerful military-style rifles.

More than 2,043 people supposedly under surveillance legally bought firearms between 2004 and 2014, according to a March analysis by the Government Accountability Office.

The FBI is notified when someone from the watch list buys a firearm or explosive, and agents often use that information to step up surveillance on terror suspects.

Under current federal law, however, association with a terrorist organization doesn’t prohibit a person from possessing firearms or explosives.

In the wake of last week’s Paris attacks, Diane Feinstein has reintroduced a bill that would make it illegal for anyone on the terrorist watch list to possess guns.

Trump is on board with Feinstein and her bill’s co-sponsors. Here is Trump in response to a question on the topic from George Stephanopoulos on ABC’s This Week. . . .

If we have an enemy of state, I don’t want to give him anything. I want to have him in jail, that’s what I want. I want to have him in jail. But if those people in Paris had guns in that room, it would have been a shootout and very few people would have been hurt by comparison to the number that were hurt . . .

If somebody is on a watch list and an enemy of state and we know it’s an enemy of state. I would keep them away, absolutely.

Sounds reasonable. Still, here are some questions to yourself…

How does one get on the terrorist watch list? How do you know if you are on the list? If there is no trial or court action, who decides that you are on the list? If their is no judicial action, how do you appeal the inclusion of your name on the list? Is it possible to have your name removed? Would it be costly or time consuming to be removed from the list? Would you be forced to prove your innocence to be removed?

Here is the real question: If some future Lois Lerner deep in the bowels of the federal bureaucracy decides to put you and your entire Tea Party organization on the watch list thus denying you your Second Amendment rights, is there anything you can do about it?

Until these questions are satisfactorily answered, Feinstein’s bill should be a non-starter.


Is Donald a spoiler?

And has that been the goal all along? The Donald has been a Democrat for most of his adult life. Supporting them.. the Clintons especially.

Well .. Let’s be more honest. Donald has been out for Donald his whole life. It just so happens that backing Democrats has made him the most money.

So.. That out of the way.. And with the Recent spate of articles claiming that Donald is considering a 3rd party run.. Is it possible that this was the plan all along?

The Media certainly loves the reality show ratings and has given him millions in free press. His attacks and the majority of his campaigning has occurred in free media space. Now. I am an optimist to a fault.. But am becoming more and more of a political cynic. And I could see that this has been a possibility all along. To get a candidate in.. to say the right things. To front the ideals and red meat to fire up the electorate.. Knowing that the GOP would never support him.. To purposely run as an independent claiming irreconcilable differences, then split the vote and guarantee Hillary a win. For which he will be rewarded handsomely.

So.. Is this political espionage and the making of decent fiction? Or is it hitting close to the truth?


Clock Boy is an old fashioned extortionist


Stage a fake injury then threaten to sue. It’s the oldest scam on the books.

Give us $15 million – or else.

That’s the demand from the family of the world’s most famous clockmaker, Ahmed Mohamed, to the City of Irving and Irving ISD. The city and district were each sent letters on Monday demanding money or else a lawsuit would be filed.

The family wants $10 million from the City of Irving and $5 million from Irving ISD for damages it claims Ahmed and the family suffered after the teen was arrested. The family also wants an apology from the two entities.

Yeah, it is exactly like this….

And now a message from the Prince of Wales

The bonny prince disagrees with ISIS when ISIS says that it is attempting to establish an Islamic caliphate in Iraq and Syria. They don’t know what they are talking about, the Prince insists. They are actually doing what they are doing because atmospheric CO2 has increased from 393.82 parts per million in 2013 to 400.1 parts per million in 2015. That 6.3 parts per million increase is why ISIS exists.

LONDON (Reuters) – Britain’s Prince Charles has pointed to the world’s failure to tackle climate change as a root cause of the civil war in Syria, terrorism and the consequent refugee crisis engulfing Europe.

The heir to the British throne is due to give a keynote speech at the opening of a global climate summit in Paris next week where 118 leaders will gather to try to nail down a deal to limit rising greenhouse gas emissions.

He then boarded his private jet and flew away releasing more atmospheric CO2 than an average British family will in a year.



Meet Chicago’s Jeff Fort

Jeff Fort

Jeff Fort

I learned about him at the Second City Cop blog. There they have an article titled, “Who Controls Jesse?” They include this image of Fort and Jesse Jackson.

People still wonder why Jesse talks when he does? Why he can be the Invisible Man when a 9-year-old is gunned down in a targeted assassination, yet all over the news when a cop shoots a kid high on PCP?

Everything you need to know about Jesse is right here in one of our favorite photographs:”


Doing a search of Fort we learn that he is now 68 years old and is serving 155 years in prison for drug trafficking, conspiracy, and murder.

In 1987, Fort was tried and convicted for conspiring with Libya to perform acts of domestic terrorism. He was sentenced to 80 years imprisonment and transferred to the USP Marion, the federal supermax prison in Marion, Illinois.[6][13][14] In 1988, Fort was also convicted of ordering the 1981 murder of a rival gang leader and was sentenced to 75 years in prison to be served after the completion of his conspiracy sentence.[13][15][16] Fort was transferred to the newly opened ADX Florence supermax prison in Florence, Colorado in 2006 and remains there as of 2014, being under a no human contact order since his arrival”

Here is, “The Making of Jeff Fort” from Chicago Magazine. Their secondary title is this: “The most feared man in Chicago was once a shining figure of hope. But the road to jail is paved with good intentions.”

Daniel Greenfield Gets It

Greenfield sees it clearly. Obama is not on our side.

“Obama wants to defeat America, not ISIS”


Obama has been playing tactical word games over ISIS all along. He would “degrade and ultimately destroy” ISIS. Or perhaps dismantle the Islamic State. Or maybe just contain it. Containment is closest to the truth. Obama has no plan for defeating ISIS. Nor is he planning to get one any time soon. There will be talk of multilateral coalitions. Drone strikes will take out key figures. And then when this impressive war theater has died down, ISIS will suddenly pull off another attack. And everyone will be baffled at how the “defeated” terrorist group is still on the march.


There’s nothing new about any of this. Obama doesn’t win wars. He lies about them.”

Media Lining Up Against Donald Trump

big mouth trump

He has them scared to death. When they are that frightened they do stupid things that make Them, Not Trump, look bad.

First there is CNN:

CNN Caught Selectively Editing Trump’s ‘Muslim’ Comments”


Left-wing cable news network CNN has been caught red-handed selectively editing Republican presidential frontrunner Donald Trump’s comments about a “Muslim registry,” and doing so in order to make it sound as though he is agreeing to this registry. He is not.

The edited video is yet another lying log on the left-wing garbage fire that is CNN, and yet in just three weeks, this very same garbage fire is hosting the next Republican presidential debate!”

Then there is the supposedly impartial ‘Fact Checker’ at the Washington Post. Glenn Kessler is the guy who hands out ‘Pinocchios’. He awards Trump four Pinocchios for saying that thousands of Muslims in New Jersey celebrated the 9-11 attacks.

kessler trump

As it actually turns out Trump was correct.

But wait, look what Powerline quickly found in Kessler’s own Washington Post, dated September 18, 2001:

In Jersey City, within hours of two jetliners’ plowing into the World Trade Center, law enforcement authorities detained and questioned a number of people who were allegedly seen celebrating the attacks and holding tailgate-style parties on rooftops while they watched the devastation on the other side of the river.”

Who gets the four Pinocchios now?”

There will be more of this. It started some time ago with trump and has been spreading to Dr. Carson and Ted Cruz. These people think they can affect the elections but they are not counting on the alternative media fact checking Them. Rather than damaging politicians they don’t cotton to they are damaging the companies they work for.
