Obama’s Iranian Agreement

Why do we have an Iranian Nuclear Agreement? The only reason for the Iran agreement was to establish another trophy for Obama’s legacy; he needed some foreign policy achievement. It is now being heralded (by the administration) as a “success.” This latest “success” will be a bookend for Obamacare, his “other success.” But, like Obamacare, the Iranian Nuclear Agreement was also a monumental disaster. The only people who deem the agreement to be a success are the administration spokespeople who are paid to support their boss. No objective observers consider the agreement to be good for the U.S. The only … Continue reading

In Israel’s Hour of Need

    From Canada Free Press It is hard to get your arms around the stubborn determination of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu today. For most of the nine years he has served as Israel’s leader, first from 1996 to 1999 and now since 2009, Netanyahu shied away from confrontations or buckled under pressure. He signed deals with the Palestinians he knew the Palestinians would never uphold in the hopes of winning the support of hostile US administrations and a fair shake from the pathologically hateful Israeli media. In recent years he released terrorist murderers from prison. He abrogated Jewish property … Continue reading

Quote Of The Day — October 26, 2014

. “States like these (Iraq, Iran, & North Korea), and their terrorist allies, constitute an axis of evil, arming to threaten the peace of the world.

Iran: ‘Evidence’ Is Clear, ISIS Is an American Invention

From the New York Times: TEHRAN — Iranians are as obsessed as Americans these days with the black-clad gangs roaming Iraq and Syria and killing Shiites and other “infidels” in the name of Sunni Islam. At the supermarket, in a shared taxi or at a family gathering, conversations often turn to the mysterious group, the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria, and how it came to be. And for most Iranians, the answer is obvious: the United States. “Come on, you know who has created ISIS,” said the supermarket owner, winking his right eye. “Admit it,” demanded the taxi driver, … Continue reading
