Iran & North Korea: Good Developments

The deal Obama and the Democrats forged with Iran over its nuclear program was supposedly going to spare us from a major nuclear conflagration. I didn’t believe it then, and I still don’t believe it now. That deal was no better than the phony deals people have foisted on the gullible throughout history. The Iran deal was only a ten-year moratorium (again supposedly) on developing nuclear material and allowed Iran itself to do its own inspection on whether it was… Read more »

Obama, Iran, Clinton, & Trump–Oh, My!

That Iran “deal” is back in the news. Normally, a deal has something good for both sides, but Iran is walking away with the store while we pretend that it will now keep its word not to develop nuclear weapons for a few years. The deposit of $400 million to Iran by a cash payment, a move that was carried out secretly by the Obama administration, has showcased once again the empathy our current president has for a terrorist state… Read more »

Obama Fiddles While America Burns

All the electioneering has distracted from the ongoing attack on America by the current temporary occupant of 1600 Pennsylvania Ave. How is Barack Obama continuing his assault on America? Let me count the ways. First, he is salivating over the prospect of nominating another Supreme Court clone, one who will tip the balance against the Constitution for the foreseeable future: Fortunately for the country, at the moment, Republicans in the Senate are standing against any nominee coming from this most… Read more »

Foolishness & Iran: A Deadly Combination

Make no mistake about this: I’m thrilled that Saeed Abedini, the pastor who has been held in horrific conditions in an Iranian prison since 2012, has been freed. Thousands have been praying for him during this long ordeal. What we have here is one of God’s blessings in the midst of an ongoing policy that continues to endanger the world. Abedini was held by the terrorist government of Iran for no apparent reason other than his Christian faith, as he… Read more »

Pondering the President’s Policies

Some random thoughts today about the recent highlights of the Obama administration. The Iran deal looks like it’s going through. This is the latest in a long line of great deals brokered by this president: Our president’s dubious accomplishments have spanned both the foreign and domestic realms, as the above cartoon shows. The economy has been moribund for his entire tenure in office, with a falling unemployment rate masking the fact that the labor force participation is at its lowest… Read more »

Iran & Proper Perspective

Congress hasn’t given up entirely on standing up to the Iran deal. The House voted its disapproval and now the Senate leadership (?) promises to have another vote. Most believe it will come to nothing because even if they reach the 60 votes to stop the filibuster, there is no way they can make it to 67 to override Obama’s veto. As I said in a previous posting, the sad part of all this is the Senate’s acquiescence to the… Read more »

On This New 9/11

Today is another 9/11, potentially worse than the one we experienced in 2001. What do I mean? As I write this, no one has yet died in a massive terrorist attack. We fervently hope the day will pass with no repeat of that horrific act. Yet yesterday, on the eve of this new 9/11, the United States Senate, in effect, voted to give $150 billion and a clear path to the development of nuclear weapons to the world’s most aggressive… Read more »
