Unless you are an idiot liberal, you would agree that the roll out of making Obamacare a viable national health plan was a calamitous disaster. Ari Bussel wonders if Obama is incapable of the successful management of his signature piece of legislation, how can he be trusted to make the world safer by being the prime mover behind negotiating nuclear peace with Iran so that we can give the psycho-Mullahs sanction relief to the tune of SEVEN BILLION DOLLARS?
I am a Patriotic American

Ultimately, only diplomacy can bring about a durable solution to the challenge posed by Iran’s nuclear program. As President and Commander-in-Chief, I will do what is necessary to prevent Iran from obtaining a nuclear weapon. But I have a profound responsibility to try to resolve our differences peacefully, rather than rush towards conflict.
Today, we have a real opportunity to achieve a comprehensive, peaceful settlement, and I believe we must test it. President Obama
What was achieved last night in Geneva is not an historic agreement; it is an historic mistake. Israel’s Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu
I am a patriotic American. Whenever I see our flag, my heart springs to attention, and I am filled with pride and joy. Very little can unnerve me enough to shake my solid belief in this great country of ours.
On Saturday, the 23rd of November 2013, Bloomberg’s top headline read: “Iran Agrees to Deal With Powers to Curb Nuclear Work.” It was subtitled “Iran to Reap $7 Billion in Sanctions Relief Under Accord.” CNN’s top headline: “Deal Limits Iran’s Nuclear Program,” and Fox’s: “Deal Struck: World powers reach agreement with Iran on nuke program.”
Everyone was focused on Iran, except the White House website that still showed the heading “Working with Both Parties to Keep the Economy Moving Forward.” The latest e-mail blast I received from the White House – part of the White House American Jewish Outreach Update – is from earlier this month, boasting a statement by President Obama on the 75th Anniversary of Kristallnacht and a speech by the President at Dallas Temple on the Affordable Care Act.
[The White House website was later to change with “breaking news: President Obama’s Statement on Iran, the United States – together with close allies and partners – has taken an important first step toward a comprehensive solution that addresses concerns with the Islamic Republic of Iran’s nuclear program.”]
The President’s top priority always enjoys the full backing of the most sophisticated PR and outreach machine this great country of ours has ever witnessed. Iran, apparently, is more a nuisance than the top priority. At least that is how it seems from the attention afforded to it by the White House, resembling a disgusting task that needs to be carried out; an afterthought.
Clearly, the President is not very much interested in Iran, or its threat to the USA. All that was necessary was an agreement, so that the Iranian “issue” can be put on the backburner.
There are much more urgent issues we face, such as the President’s historical legacy – Obamacare. (The program, at the moment, is still suffering from “technical glitches” despite an investment of hundreds of millions of dollars in a website that does not work properly, not to mention a faulty architecture that will eventually bring its collapse and finger pointing at the Republicans and members of the Tea Party: “It is all their fault!”)
Three more years from this November until the next Presidential election, and at the moment, the President is very focused: Obamacare! (It is not even a true concern to reform the healthcare system, just maintaining a legacy and not admitting a mess of colossal proportions already so clearly evident.)
Why should anyone worry? Iran is far away and has repeatedly stated – contrary to all appearances and its abundance of oil as an energy source – that its nuclear program is solely for peaceful purposes. The Sanctions this Administration has put in place have been most effective, successful in causing remorse among the Iranian leadership and a reversal of course. It all works.
Iran will say whatever the West wants to hear, while continuing to do exactly what it wants: accelerating development of its military nuclear program.
Indeed, given all the Administration under the current Commander-in-Chief achieved, we are witnessing “Peace in Our Lifetime.” Let us focus on what is really important: Higher health insurance costs; mass cancellations of policies for millions who were, until very recently, insured; hospitals and doctors pulling out of networks and Medicare recipients hurting due to cuts. All this “noise” has to be dealt with quickly, lest it detract from the crowning achievement of Obama.
A negotiated peaceful end to all this unpleasantness with Iran! Thirty-five years from the ascent of Khomeini to power and the establishment of the Islamic Republic of Iran, and finally a Peace Laureate manages to bring an end to decades of open hostilities. Truly, I am in awe of the massive achievements by one person. Would I be amiss admitting the Messiah is finally appearing before our very eyes, revealing himself to the world?
Some feel that President Obama just “threw Israel under the bus,” but I say differently: The President of the United States of America is not entrusted with protecting Israel. Israel is a sovereign nation, and knows how and when to protect itself. (If it does not, well, then it – and it alone – will suffer the consequences.) Israel must not expect, and definitely cannot plan, for America to do its bidding.
The President – glossy and glory speeches notwithstanding – never intended to do anything of substance against Iran. Similarly, he never had any real intention of standing in the way of Syria’s Assad and the latter’s slaughter of hundreds of thousands of his own people. The world stood silent. Why bother?
The President “showed determination and force” against an ally – Egypt’s President Mubarak – ushering in the Muslim Brotherhood’s ascent to power and control of the largest Arab country in the world. The President ordered direct attacks in Libya, against a leader who repented and was working with us, the late Kaddafi. (Where was the same determination and use of force and resources when our Ambassador and others of his protective detail were murdered?)
And Israel. Again, Israel. That is a difficult thorn indeed, only because of the all-powerful Jewish Lobby, AIPAC, that controls DC (please refer to a book about the Jewish Lobby and some statements by the Jews who truly care about America and are part of J Street), and all these rich Jews who support the Democratic Party. For them, and because of them, we have to pretend.
What a great conclusion: The Jews are at fault for the President having to take a tough stand against Iran! Not Israel, but those super-wealthy, super-powerful Jews right here in America. If it were not for them, life would have been so much easier, a negotiated surrender could have been achieved ages ago.
Forget about Iran. They do not know what they are doing. They use idle threats, not really intent on doing anything with their nuclear power. In fact, they have every right, exactly like Israel, to have a full-fledged nuclear program.
Why should Israel have an arsenal it can use at a moment’s notice, and Iran be precluded? What’s fair is fair! Besides, there are enough crazies in Israel, not less dangerous to the world and to world peace! (If Netanyahu didn’t possess so much clout with Congress, the President would put him exactly where he should be and declare him the real obstacle to peace in our lifetime, peace in the Middle East and the return of the Palestinians to their homeland and eternal capital of Al Quds.)
The President of the United States has to “make-believe” he is proactive so the Iranian “issue” can be set aside. There are much more urgent things to which he must attend. Thanksgiving is just around the corner, then Christmas and New Year. What trips are planned? Have thousands of members of the Entourage teams been invited to these all-expense-paid trips? How about just a relaxing get-away using Air Force One to Martha’s Vineyard (too cold already), Hawaii, India or Africa? Welcome to Beverly Hills! You can enjoy a moment of rest with peaceful and protected shopping on Rodeo Drive!
There are endless parties to attend, a family and a Royal Dog. Alas, the President is also the Commander in Chief, and there are still thousands of Americans around the world (time to get back home!). Just recently we saw a disaster in the Philippines, and there, too, Israel was first. First to respond and so effectively so. The first baby to be delivered was called Israel and millions of hits (five million by the last count) were generated around the reports of the Israeli Consul General in the West Coast. Those damn Jews! First at everything! They even managed to steal the glory from the President sending our military force and full might to extend a helping hand.
The Presidential Calendar is full! Five days in Geneva have been overwhelming, truly exhausting even for a seasoned politician like our Secretary of State. Time to get back home. The days to Thanksgiving and Black Friday are drawing closer; let us stop wasting time on Iran. Declare an agreement. State the historic significance of our achievements, ease and eliminate the sanctions and let’s focus on what is really important.
Our allies in the Middle East and throughout the world are shocked. Even France (usually characterized by their rush to surrender at the face of even the slightest hiccup) decided to take a different stand.
Our “allies in the Middle East” have long awakened to a new frightening reality, one in which the USA cannot be trusted. Saudi Arabia sees something that our President does not, so it messes things up for him, for his plan for a peaceful holiday season. Perhaps they simply do not understand the peaceful intentions of Iran and Iran’s right to achieve nuclear dominance (for “peaceful purposes” and nothing else).
A new coalition of the frightened is being formed. Israel, France, Saudi Arabia, other countries in the Gulf. Is anyone surprised that the fanatic Prime Minister of Israel is heading it, stirring trouble in peaceful and otherwise calm waters?
In fact, anyone with a bit of common sense and understanding of reality, and anyone who knows how to read what the Iranians are saying and analyze what is actually taking place in Iran, would conclude that the US-of-A has gone mad. Apparently a previous history lesson – “Peace in our Lifetime!” – has been forgotten (or never learned at all).
If I, a patriotic American, did not believe Saturday night’s speech by President Obama, imagine what others, particularly Iran, countries throughout the Arab World and Israel, made of it.
I, at least, have given my President the full benefit of the doubt.
I would stand and defend our country to my last breath, and although I am registered with the Selective Service, we have not had a draft in recent memory. I am just afraid my Commander in Chief has brought us a step closer to the beginning of World War III, willing to sacrifice whatever is needed, similar to the offering of Czechoslovakia in 1938.

I have just discovered the Obama Administration negotiating team (five permanent U.N. Security Council members – United States, Britain, France, Russia, China – plus Germany) has hammered out a deal that indeed favors Iran. The favor is Iran agrees to lower its uranium enrichment process by 5% while the UN led sanctions are reduced to the point that the USA promises to give Iran $7 BILLION in sanction relief. The whole deal is based on an absolute trust that Iran will honor its part of the deal. I guess that will work out just like trustworthy North Korea promised no nuke weaponization and Hitler promised Chamberlain no more aggressive invasions.
A Very Bad Deal

This morning in Geneva, the United States and other world powers agreed to a deal with the radical mullahs in Iran over their nuclear program. What details have been released indicate it is a very bad deal for the United States and can be interpreted as rewarding Iran for its decades of radicalism and terror.
Even more important, Obama and Kerry seem to naively believe Iran can be trusted. What gives them that idea? Iran has been lying and terrorizing the west for over 30 years. Nothing has changed. In fact, the United States went down this path with North Korea and it lead directly to its getting nuclear weapons. Read this article which sheds more light on the Iran deal.
A Bad and Morally Indefensible Deal (NationalReview.com)
By Jack David, November 24, 2013 1:00 AM
The announcement that the P-5+1 (the five U.N. Security Council members plus Germany) reached a nuclear deal with Iran has just been made. A few details of the deal have been announced and there likely will be others. But what has been reported so far is sufficient to conclude, as Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu said of the draft deal reported two weeks ago, that “this is a very, very bad deal.”
The Iranian “concessions” thus far announced are unimpressive: Iran will stop enriching uranium beyond 5 percent; it will install no additional centrifuges; it will convert the 100 pounds or so of 20 percent enriched uranium which quickly can be converted to weapons-grade uranium to something harder to convert to weapons-grade uranium. Iran has not agreed to dismantle any of the thousands of centrifuges it has installed and continues to operate; to send any of its 20 percent enriched uranium out of the country; to close the nuclear facilities which will soon provide it with plutonium with which to make nuclear weapons; to stop its testing of long-range missiles; or to cease its support of terrorist activities by Hezbollah and others.
The United States has reportedly agreed to provide Iran with $7 billion in sanctions relief. This relief doubtless will help Iran in many ways, not least the “right” to continue the dangerous nuclear-weapons development and terrorist-support activities which it has long maintained. It will not be in the least surprising, as more details of the deal are announced, to learn of other benefits provided to Iran to induce it to agree . . . to something – anything.
The U.S., by pressing forward with this very, very bad deal has further eroded its dwindling international credibility. No country in the Middle East will perceive U.S. agreement to this deal as anything but further evidence of its weakness, further evidence that the U.S. is content to undermine its historical alliances, expressions to the contrary notwithstanding.
In defending the deal, the United States (and perhaps others among its P-5+1 partners) doubtless will point to the fact that it is only an interim step and that Iran has agreed to allow International Atomic Energy Agency inspectors to visit its still-operating facilities. Given Iran’s long history of preventing IAEA inspectors to do their jobs and its long history of flouting its obligations regarding its nuclear program, the value of this Iranian promise should be discounted to zero.
In a speech in Tehran this past week to a crowd of thousands that was was broadcast live, Iranian Supreme leader Khamenei attacked the U.S., France, and Israel, saying that “Zionist officials cannot be called humans, they are like animals,” that “the Israeli regime is doomed to failure and annihilation,” that the “Zionist regime” is the “rabid dog of the region.”
The deal the U.S. and its partners just struck with Iran is a “very, very bad deal” as a practical and a political matter. In the context of Khamenei’s contemporaneous statements and the background of so many other statements of similar stripe, it is also morally indefensible.

Here is an interesting fact about the Quran and the Hadith: Jew-Hatred is encoded as truth in Islam’s holy writings.
YUSUFALI: Say: “Shall I point out to you something much worse than this, (as judged) by the treatment it received from Allah? those who incurred the curse of Allah and His wrath, those of whom some He transformed into apes and swine, those who worshipped evil;- these are (many times) worse in rank, and far more astray from the even path!”
PICKTHAL: Shall I tell thee of a worse (case) than theirs for retribution with Allah? (Worse is the case of him) whom Allah hath cursed, him on whom His wrath hath fallen and of whose sort Allah hath turned some to apes and swine, and who serveth idols. Such are in worse plight and further astray from the plain road.
SHAKIR: Say: Shall I inform you of (him who is) worse than this in retribution from Allah? (Worse is he) whom Allah has cursed and brought His wrath upon, and of whom He made apes and swine, and he who served the Shaitan; these are worse in place and more erring from the straight path. (AL-MAEDA (THE TABLE, THE TABLE SPREAD); Total Verses: 120; Revealed At: MADINA; Quran-USC.edu.org; Center for Muslim-Jewish Engagement)
YUSUFALI: Thou wilt indeed find them, of all people, most greedy of life,-even more than the idolaters: Each one of them wishes He could be given a life of a thousand years: But the grant of such life will not save him from (due) punishment. For Allah sees well all that they do.
PICKTHAL: And thou wilt find them greediest of mankind for life and (greedier) than the idolaters. (Each) one of them would like to be allowed to live a thousand years. And to live (a thousand years) would be no means remove him from the doom. Allah is Seer of what they do.
SHAKIR: And you will most certainly find them the greediest of men for life (greedier) than even those who are polytheists; every one of them loves that he should be granted a life of a thousand years, and his being granted a long life will in no way remove him further off from the chastisement, and Allah sees what they do. (AL-BAQARA (THE COW); Total Verses: 286; Revealed At: MADINA; Ibid.)
Narrated Abu Huraira:
Allah’s Apostle said, “The Hour will not be established until you fight with the Jews, and the stone behind which a Jew will be hiding will say. “O Muslim! There is a Jew hiding behind me, so kill him.” (Bukhari :: Book 4 :: Volume 52 :: Hadith 177; Fighting for the Cause of Allah (Jihaad))
If you take the time to examine more Quranic suras and the Hadith you will find more encoded Jew-Hatred (AND also Christian-Hatred and general non-Muslim-Hatred). Honestly if you are outside the belief system of Islam, unless you are blind, Islam is as much an ideology as it is a religious guiding principle, perhaps even more so an ideology teaching adherents about a superiority. This is a superiority that says if you not in the club or if you insult the club you are worthy of death or forced humiliating submission.
Now I have imposed on your reading time to show you that the principle of the enemy of my enemy is my friend is alive and well. Can you imagine the Jewish State of Israel and the radical Islamic Wahhabist nation of Saudi Arabia are engaged in working out a deal that both nations consider an existential threat?
The common enemy is Iran. Yup, that’s right. The same radical Islamic Shia-Twelver nation that President Barack Hussein Obama is about to urge the Senate to approve a deal on drawing back sanctions under the delusion that Iran will slow down nuclear uranium enrichment under the next delusion that Iran will forsake WMD nuclear weaponization.
Either Obama is a complete Foreign Policy moron or he is engaged in finding any scenario of chaos to transform the globe (yes including the USA) into a Left Wing pseudo-Marxist New World Order.
Obama’s flirtation with Iran has convinced Israel and Saudi Arabia that the U.S. government is no longer dedicated to their actual Middle Eastern allies’ regional security.
Jew-Hatred from a nuclear armed Iran could easily lead to a nuclear WMD strike against Israel EVEN THOUGH Israel does have its own nukes to level Iran. The Twelver mentality of Iran’s Mullahs and Ayatollahs will not be deterred by the military doctrine of Mutually Assured Destruction (MAD). In essence the MAD doctrine states that regardless of who pushes buttons to launch nuclear warheads first, the retaliating nuke power will push buttons as well. Meaning that nations engaged in nuclear war will both loose because they will both be destroyed by mutual nuke WMD attacks. Twelvers believe dying in war is glorious and sends one straight to Muslim Paradise.
The problem between Saudi Arabia and Iran has its history in the ancient Islamic divide of Sunnis vs. Shias. Sunnis represent roughly 90% of all Islam. Even in that demographic difference both Islamic sects have both declared each other heretics. In the Muslim world heretics are worthy of death. So-called moderate-radical differences make no difference in how to adjudicate a Muslim heretic. It is an offense worthy of death. Wahhabi Clerics have often proclaimed Shia believers kafir. There is a Shia minority in Saudi Peninsula but the aim of Wahhabi fatwas against Shi’ites has a lot to do with a rally cry against the heretics of Iran. So you can see that a nuclear armed Iran is also an existential threat to Saudi Arabia whose Wahhabis consider themselves Sunnis. A large amount of Sunnis have a problem with the medieval puritanical Wahhabis.
If Israel and the Saudis cooperate against Iran, I would advise the Israeli government that Saudi Wahhabis are still their enemy and will turn on a dime to betray Israel once (if ever) there is a successful Israel-Saudi neutralization of Iranian regional aspirations.
Here is the article that got the old gray matter motivated concerning an Israel-Saudi team against Iran.

I cross posted Danny Jeffrey’s very insightful post “Iran, Obama and Nuclear War” that begins the examination of the real reasons behind President Barack Hussein Obama making an economic/nuke deal that is favorable to Iran’s National Interests BUT detrimental to our ally Israel and essentially the USA itself. In that essay Danny notifies us there will be a part two.
In Part TWO Danny continues to examine or perhaps expose Obama’s agenda in lessening sanctions against Iran in exchange that Iran slow down its uranium enrichment that leads to nuclear weapons. You will discover about how this will affect Israel. The short answer is it will lead to nuclear which is a part of the Obama end game. Also in that end game is some information on how Obama is getting rid of all high level military Officers loyal to the U.S. Constitution while leaving those Officers loyal to Obamasiah.
Here is a tantalizing excerpt:
You are probably familiar with Occam’s Razor, the concept that the simplest answer is usually the correct answer. My simple answer to why Obama supports a nuclear Iran is that he wants a nuclear war. They have stated, for the entire world to hear, their intention to wipe Israel off the map. Any sensible human being would take them at their word, and do everything possible to stop their hellish scheme, but all that Obama and Kerry are doing is asking them to slow down for just six months.
You MUST read the entire essay. O yeah you will learn there is a Part THREE on the way.
Yesterday I wrote of President Barack Hussein Obama’s Foreign Policy duplicity for making the effort to negotiate a deal with Iran that will essentially leave their not-so-secret clandestine nuclear weapons program intact. AND that such a negotiation is throwing Israel under the bus.
TODAY I have learned what Obama’s idiotic plans with Iran will lead to – Check out The Corner of the National Review Online to discover Obama’s negotiations is beginning WMD nuclear arms race in the Middle East.
And So It Begins…

My old colleague Mark Urban reports for the BBC:
Saudi Arabia has invested in Pakistani nuclear weapons projects, and believes it could obtain atomic bombs at will, a variety of sources have told BBC Newsnight.
While the kingdom’s quest has often been set in the context of countering Iran’s atomic programme, it is now possible that the Saudis might be able to deploy such devices more quickly than the Islamic republic.
Earlier this year, a senior Nato decision maker told me that he had seen intelligence reporting that nuclear weapons made in Pakistan on behalf of Saudi Arabia are now sitting ready for delivery…
The Sauds, of course, are signatories to that spiffy non-proliferation treaty. Zbigniew Brzezinski and all the realpolitik types in Washington think Iran can be “contained” à la Russian bear. King Abdullah and the other Sunni monarchs understand that this isn’t 1950: a US containment strategy doesn’t come in the wake of nuking Japan, but after years of American weakness, retreat, and the abandonment of allies like Mubarak. Would you bet your future on American containment?

A lot of Conservative people believe President Barack Hussein Obama is purposely setting America up to be a failure under the system of government provided by our Constitution.
Domestically Obama has initiated programs economically and socially that will overwhelm our system of government with Big Government fiscal policy and instilling the acceptance of a morality that continues the rupture of our society’s dependence on the Godly morality of the Bible. Social rupture includes opening wide gaps in our southern border to invite Mexicans to come to America without ANY accountability for illegal activities AND providing the illegal aliens with better benefits than Americans themselves receive.
Foreign Policy has been such a debacle that Obama has cursed our nation with such scandals as Fast & Furious, Benghazigate lies that include nefarious collusion with al Qaeda terrorists, getting involved with the UN policy of the Responsibility to Protect (R2P) which led to a Libya revolution involvement which aided Islamic terrorists and almost doing a repeat in Syria, the constant throwing of Israel under the bus (AND HERE) and check this out – trying to discover a diplomatic relationship with Iran that is actively developing nuclear weapons.
Trust me there are more idiotic domestic and foreign decisions by Obama that I am just not touching on. These destructive Obama measures are either on purpose to harm America’s Constitutional government OR the President is a totally inept Executive Branch leader that still will harm America’s Constitutional government. The latest foreign policy disaster in the works pertaining to Iran is what I want to focus on today.
Obama’s Administration coupled with EU efforts is initiating negotiations with Iran for an end to economic sanctions in exchange for Iran promising to “…stop enriching uranium and reduce its existing stockpile and reduces the number of centrifuges …”
AGAIN! Obama is making a deal to allow Iran to eventually and idiotically develop nuclear weapons which will enable Iran to make good on its decades old promise to wipe Israel off the map while the USA is impotent to stop it. In exchange Iran’s trade avenues expand in better money markets in the West. The same West that Iranian polemicizing accuses of being under the thumb of the Great Satan which is Radical Islam for the United States of America.
You don’t have to be a geopolitical expert to understand this is a betrayal of Israel. You may need just a bit more understanding that a nuclear armed Iran will be a threat to the rest of our interests in the Middle East as well as to our own homeland because of Iran’s political desires to be a regional hegemon and its mutual theological desire to create the Shi’ite circumstances that will hasten the return of their (antichrist-devilish) concept to bring back the Mahdi/Hidden Imam to bring the Iranian version of Islam to the whole world. It is a kind of theological Nazi Master Race concept.
The problem is the Dem Party Majority Leader in the Senate is Obama-lapdog Harry Reid will do all in his power to ratify such Obama idiocy. Regardless of Obama and his lapdog there is a call to flood your Senators with an Iran anti-nuke/support Israel call. The call I discovered is from Secure America Now. Now these things are usually fund raisers as much as they are a grassroots mobilization. Even though I am cross posting the Secure America Now email I received do not limit yourself to finding other avenues to get the message to your Senators. If your Senator is a Democrat and he/she is up for reelection in 2014, you may wish to point out that you will not vote for a Senator that is co-perpetrating with Obama to allow Iran to arm with nuclear weapons.

The Obama administration is on the brink of giving the Islamic Republic of Iran the economic relief it needs to complete their development of nuclear weapons.
A deal the Prime Minister of Israel has called “A bad deal — a very, very bad deal. It’s the deal of a century for Iran; it’s a very dangerous and bad deal for peace and the international community.”
It seems President Obama and Secretary Kerry have offered Iran a plethora of financial incentives and financial goodies in exchange for a SLOWDOWN in their nuclear program. Not a complete dismantling of the program, but a slowdown. This deal will give Iran the economic lifeline it so desperately needs while allowing them to get nuclear weapons sometime soon.
We utterly reject the deal. Congress should utterly reject the deal. Senate Democrats who are sitting on the sidelines and holding up legislation that would increase sanctions need to put politics aside and stand up for the safety and security of the United States and its allies.
With this deal the Obama administration is once again naively trusting the radical terrorist regime in Iran and endangering the United States. It’s time for Congress to stand up and lead where the President is not.
We need your help to urge the Senate to increase sanctions now and to reject Obama’s appeasement. Help us broadcast our message to every member of the Senate. Please watch our video and then give what you can to make sure this message is heard.

For over 30 years, the radical mullahs in Iran have been at war with the United States. From the kidnapping of Americans in the U.S. Embassy in 1979 to the gruesome murder of hundreds of American peacekeepers in Beirut, the Iranian regime has attempted to kill Americans at every opportunity they had. After years of sanctions, the Iranians have finally agreed to conduct direct negotiations with the United States.
While the Iranians have yet to give up one iota on their quest to develop nuclear weapons, the U.N. and the Obama administration want to reward Iran with decreasing sanctions or unfreezing Iranian assets around the world.
This is a big mistake. The West should demand that the world’s most dangerous and radical regime completely dismantle its nuclear weapons program before the West releases one iota of sanctions. Now is the time to strengthen sanctions, not to weaken them.
The House has already passed a bill to increase sanctions. Help us put the pressure on Democrats in the Senate to stand up to the appeasement of the Obama administration and toughen the sanctions against Iran. We cannot allow Iran to build nuclear weapons — A nuclear Iran is the gateway to nuclear terror. Help us Stop them now!

Intro to ‘JAMES BUCHANAN’S NEW CELLMATE’
Intro by John R. Houk
Posted September 9, 2013
Who is James Buchanan? Buchanan was the 15th President of the USA elected as a Democrat (You know, the same political party as Barack Hussein Obama). Buchanan’s term of Office was from 1857 to January 11, 1861. Even though Buchanan was from Pennsylvania he supported the Slave States’ position on slavery. Buchanan mouthed his support of the U.S. Constitution and the Union of the United States of America; however as President he took no action to preserve America’s Union. Controversies of if a new State should be admitted as slave or free knocked loggerheads together politically. After Abraham Lincoln was elected as a Republican President in 1860, Southern State after Southern State seceded from the Union and formed the Confederate States of America to preserve a slave economic culture in the South.
You have to understand Buchanan’s ineptitude to comprehend the title of John Bert’s essay castigating President Barack Hussein Obama Foreign Policy and specifically Obama’s desire to engage Syria militarily.
BTW – I believe I am at least one of the reasons that John Bert reposted this essay. You can tell this might be about a week or so dated; nevertheless the thoughts are still valid. I might point out I don’t completely agree with John Bert on the issue if engaging Bashar al-Assad is not to our National Interest. I believe it is to the USA’s interest (See Also HERE) but NOT the Obama is trying to convince people to engage Assad. The lone wolf path will make things worse before it is better.

Well…Folks GET READY…Obama has JUST CHECKMATED the Congress with the Syria issue. I am CERTAIN he did not make these decisions on his own…someone with an actual working brain made these calculations…not Obama.
Here is where we are:
1.) At this point there is NO Tactical advantage (or otherwise) for the type of military strike that the imbecile in chief, Obama, has been broadcasting to the enemy that we would be making.
2.) It is most assuredly NOT in our “National Interest” or in the “Security Interests” to proceed with limited military action of the sort the “president” has proposed. There is No pressing nor imminent danger. These horrible poison gas weapons are being used in theater only.
3.) Many months back Obama’s teleprompter (we have to blame it on anyone BUT him, right?) caused Obama to shoot off his mouth about “red lines”. The “red line” has been repeatedly crossed. Now, trapped by his own mouth, he had to put up or shut up. Shutting up makes him (and the country by default) look WEAK, which is no shock to anyone who has observed HIM for more than 5 minutes, as the Russians and Iranians surely have.
4.) So now, feeling the heat (and MOST importantly watching his poll numbers plummet) he had to try to find a “way out”. Now he (or actually one of his handlers) has done so. By “seeking the authority of congress” he has effectively REVERSED the tables. Now the BLAME will fall on Congress for whatever mess comes out of Obama’s desperate need to save face for his earlier case of diarrhea of the mouth about “red lines”. Maybe we should call this approaching debacle the “Vanity War”?
Here is what WILL HAPPEN NOW… The very people that you have heard repeatedly saying taking military action against Syria was a BAD IDEA with no goal and no plan and worse, it could cause the entire region to go up in flames, these very SAME PEOPLE will now (many of them) FLIP and say the Congress MUST authorize the President to do something that an hour ago they were vehemently AGAINST. Yep…you read that right. The reason will be that we MUST authorize the President to make an asinine mistake, because if we do not Iran and everyone in the world will see the USA as weak and not living up to our word (Well…not our word…but the imbecile’s). In other words by Obama seeking congressional authority he has abdicated his leadership and authority to act and will have it BOTH WAYS…
a.) If Congress denies him the authority he will point the finger at CONGRESS.
b.) If Congress grants him the authority whatever happens when he does launch his military action against Syria, now THEY–CONGRESS will stand right with him in assuming the blame for the consequences of military action with NO clear objective and no real benefit to the USA.
THIS IS PURE GENIUS!! Either way Congress is holding the bag!!
Just when you thought this Amateur could not screw things up worse he pulls a rabbit out of his hat and promptly drops it in the lap of Congress.
The price to pay for this one move will ripple forward in time with ramifications that are hard to fathom on sooo many fronts.
If it could not get worse…it will…Obama is getting ready to fly to RUSSIA for the G20 summit. This will be a circus. Do you remember the videos of Obama walking along a line of dignitaries in Russia and NO ONE SHAKING HIS HAND…Obama sticks his hand out and NO ONE takes it…reason?? Russians are proud people and would rather be shot dead than be seen with a WEAKLING and COWARD. They KNOW who and what Obama is and they will not shake the hand of a coward…it is as simple as that. So watch as the White House staff does their best to shepherd Obama clear of any opportunities for another round of videos of folks refusing to shake his hand.
The dire foreign policy issues will multiply from this decision. Israel now knows (if they had not before they SURE DO NOW) that they are on their own. Iran now knows beyond any illusions that Obama’s word is worthless…utterly. Russia already knew.
Remember Obama did NOT seek congressional approval for Libya did he? NO. It is being done here for Obama’s VANITY reasons, NOT for the benefit of the USA. It is a Parlor Trick to pull HIS ass out of the fire and stick Congress in his place. He knows historians will look on this as abdication of authority and he is desperate to find a scapegoat…he now has, IF the Congress is stupid enough to fall for this ploy.
This man is a travesty beyond comprehension. This little stunt will be paid for and I fear the price in American lives will be STEEP.
As a side note Obama has made a laughingstock out of his brand New Secretary of State. Kerry has gone out on a limb trying to assemble “partners” making a vocal and impassioned plea for military action NOW, while Obama just sawed off the limb Kerry was clinging to. Want to bet THAT picture will quickly emerge in the Political Cartoons?? I wish I could draw!
Brilliant, right? Destroy the country’s credibility. Weaken foreign policy. Throw your Sec of State under the bus….and on and on…trust me this will NOT be the last act. I could write a BOOK on what MIGHT happen from here….none of it will be good. This idiot just sealed his fate historically as probably the most inept President. Move over James Buchanan you have a new cellmate.
Postscript: I have already heard Ambassador Bolton and Charles Krauthammer, two men that have repeatedly said the Syria military intervention is a horrible idea, now start sounding like Obama’s cheerleader for authority to act based upon the premise I recite above…geez…it did not take long.
Friends and Countrymen IF we are to stop this madness we NEED to let our Senators and Congressmen KNOW that voting for military intervention of the type Obama has proposed in Syria is STILL a HORRIBLE IDEA, and does NOT serve any security interest of this Country, only now, if they grant him the authority, THEY will join him in the history books as the Village Idiots who got out foxed by an Rank Imbecile.

The spirit of Adolf Hitler has risen from the grave and infused itself into the European Union (EU). The EU’s current economic war against Israel is reprehensible. If the EU sanctions achieve the desired result it will set Israel up for the Second Holocaust as Islamic Terrorist organizations, a sovereign Palestine, Lebanon (under Hezbollah control), whoever wins the Syrian civil war, Egypt, Iran and maybe Jordan to obliterate a near defenseless Israel in killing millions of Jews in the process. Caroline Glick has not drawn my conclusions, but if you read her article I believe you will form a similar conclusion unless you stick your head in the sand. O yeah, Obama must be on board with the EU. Obama has sent Secretary of State John Kerry to reopen Israel-PA negotiations. I have no doubts that Kerry is using the EU sanctions as a weapon in an attempt to force Israel to bend to the will of the Arabs who call themselves Palestinians.

You know the Mainstream Media is primarily Leftist in its worldview, right? You know that the Democratic Party is not even close to the projected image of a reputation as the Party of the People, right? You know that Leftists blame Israel’s existence for all the violence projected toward the West, right? You know that Left influenced Western nations – including the USA’s Left Wing government – have joined together to force Israel to give up more of their ancestral land to placate a group of Arabs that were self-proclaimed as Palestinians ONLY in the 1960s under the influence of Jew-Hating Muslim Arab nations under the guise of theopolitical Islamic Supremacism. These Arab nations had no intention of creating a “Palestinian State,” you know that right? From 1948 through 1967 the goal of Arab nations surrounding the rebirthed nation Israel was to destroy it and divvy up the land between the biggest Arab military dogs bordering Israel; viz. Egypt, Jordan and Syria, you know that right?
Under the illusion of “land for peace” the UN, the EU, the USA and Russia are placing unreported (in America anyway) diplomatic arm twisting to force Israel to give up Judea-Samaria (aka West Bank) and the eastern half of the Holy City Jerusalem – which by the way contains the huge wall remnants of the ancient Jewish Temple – to a group of Arabs that really have no ancestral ties to the ancient land of Israel. There are NO Palestinians. There are Arabs that are descendants of refugees that awaited invading Arab armies to kill the Jews and claim the land as conquest in the same way Islam has done for over 1500 years.
Therein lies the real Middle Eastern problem: Islamic holy writings call for Jihad to expel any infidel that has retaken land once conquered by Muslim armies. God help us! That includes that miniscule amount of land that is only a fraction of Israel’s ancestry. Islam must destroy Israel because its existence is an effrontery and insult to Allah and the false-deity’s prophet Mohammed. And if you watch the news YOU KNOW how Muslims react when they believe their deity and prophet have been maligned by non-Muslims. Muslims go hog-wild in rampages of destruction and death against the closest symbols of the West or the unfortunate non-Muslims (mostly Christians) living in Muslim dominated lands.

Obama uses EU to confront Israel with tough interlinked choices: borders or nuclear-armed Iran -http://www.debka.com/article/23124/Obama-uses-EU-to-confront-Israel-with-tough-interlinked-choices-borders-or-nuclear-armed-Iran-
It doesn’t take a political genius to see how US Secretary of State John Kerry’s arrival in Amman Tuesday, July 16, for his sixth bid to bring Israelis and the Palestinians to the table, ties in with the new EU anti-Israel funding guidelines published on the same day. To avoid a head-on clash with Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu, the US president has loosed the Europeans in full cry against Jerusalem and its policies. European Union foreign affairs executive Catherine Ashton chairs the international negotiating forum with Iran. And so, the EU has given Tehran a broad wink that it is worth its while to come to a fresh round of nuclear diplomacy while Israel is kept on the run in the settlements-cum-borders dispute.
Israel is further weakened by its own internal political difficulties.
The third Netanyahu cabinet is painfully shorthanded of ministers for dealing with foreign diplomacy and national security affairs. In the absence of a foreign minister, shackled with a new cabinet which took office in February, and beset with a reshuffle of his close aides, the prime minister is obliged to carry himself most of the burden for key decisions on the essential business of state.
When he decides not to decide on any issue, that issue is shuffled into the pending tray to await his attention – and of late, this is happening too often.
Netanyahu is taxed currently with keeping tabs on the conflict close to Israel’s borders in Egyptian Sinai, the threatened spillover of the Syrian war – only part of which reaches the public – and the approach of a nuclear Iran, which he admits is dangerously close to consummation. Every few weeks, he is put on the spot for fast decisions by US Secretary of State Kerry’s peace drive.
It is no wonder that Netanyahu drops some of the balls he is juggling.
The last ball to slip out of his hands was the new European Commission’s new guideline for the alliance to distinguish between the state of Israel and territories outside the 1967 Green Line for the purpose of co-funding projects and grants.
This guideline is grounded in the EU’s fixed determination that East Jerusalem, Gaza, the West Bank and the Golan were illegally occupied by Israel after the 1967 Arab-Israel war. The “settlements” housing more than a half a million Jews are likewise deemed illegal. Therefore, from Jan. 1, 2014, any Israeli entity seeking European project funding or grants will be obliged to declare it has no connection, direct or indirect, with a “settlement.”
There is nothing new about this determination. The European Union has for years boycotted goods manufactured in settlements and demanded that Israel exporters label their products with the source of manufacture. Ever since 1967, the UK has withheld pensions and allowances from British expatriates living outside the Green Line until they relocate to addresses London deems kosher.
And that is only one of many examples.
However, the new guidelines have exacerbated the rift between Brussels and Jerusalem and signal a further deterioration. If in future every Israeli firm is required before every financial or business transaction with Europe to disassociate from EU-proscribed Jewish communities, then bilateral trade, whose volume has climbed to 40 billion euros, will gradually decline, with as much economic fallout for Europe as for Israel.
Israel’s prime minister responded fast and hard to the new EU guidelines with a bitter broadside for what he sees as outside interference in the definition of Israel’s borders, in a manner which compromises direct Israel negotiations with the Palestinians. Direct negotiations are the only way to define those borders, he stressed, and the EU measure had the effect of tilting them in the Palestinians’ favor.
Netanyahu was particularly incensed by the EU dropping its bombshell on the day John Kerry arrived in Amman to pick up his mission for reviving the peace track, which he interrupted empty-handed earlier this month.
Defense Minister Moshe Ya’alon greeted Kerry’s arrival by eulogizing his mission, accusing the Palestinians of burying it by sheer obstructionism. Ya’alon no doubt followed the line set by the prime minister.
Kerry spent five hours talking to Palestinian Authority chairman Mahmoud Abbas Tuesday night, in yet another effort to melt his insistence on Israel meeting his preconditions for a meeting.
By Wednesday morning, the US Secretary had not yet arranged to meet Israeli officials this time round.
Israeli policy-makers understand that Washington is dodging a showdown with Netanyahu by using the Europeans to clobber his policies at a moment of internal weakness in Jerusalem. Now they realize they must brace urgently for the next chapter in the Obama campaign: Ashton will build on the EU steps to get a fresh round of world power-Iranian nuclear negotiations underway by persuading Tehran that Brussels, with Washington’s backing, is in full flight of a diplomatic campaign for cutting Israel down to size.
By pulling the wires behind the European campaign, the Obama administration is after three goals:
1. Persuading Tehran to return to international diplomacy on its nuclear program by diminishing Israel’s leverage.
2. Confronting Israel with diplomatic isolation on an issue of prime importance to its security, i.e., the prospect of a nuclear-armed Iran, unless the Netanyahu government agrees to concessions to the Palestinians on final borders.
3. Warning Netanyahu that his failure to toe the Obama line on the Syrian conflict and the Egyptian army coup will cost Israel dear. Instead of lining up with what is seen in the region as an ineffectual Washington, Israel struck out on its own to play ball with regional forces on the move, the Arab rulers of the Gulf and the Egyptian army. The US president has used the European Union to make sure Jerusalem understands that he too will pursue his own game – and it will be at the expense of Israel’s interests.
EU Redraws Israel Borders to 1949 Lines – http://the-end-time.blogspot.com/2013/07/eu-redraws-israel-borders-to-1949-lines.html
The title above is from Israel National News this evening. The recent re-attention to Israel by the US in its attempts to re-start the peace talks, Israel’s hints to engage in a military option very soon regarding Iran, and this bold and highly non-biblical, non-God approved move to re-draw Israel’s lines heats the prophetic landscape up to a very prophetic degree.
For the first time, the EU formally forbids trade with bodies located beyond 1949 Armistice lines, including Golan
“The European Union has issued orders forbidding its member states from cooperating, transferring funds, giving scholarships or research grants to bodies in Judea and Samaria, eastern Jerusalem, and even the Golan Heights, Haaretz wrote Tuesday. The new instruction, promulgated by the European Commission, which is the operative arm of the EU, sets parameters for cooperation between the EU and its members states, on the one hand, and Israeli governmental and private elements on the other. The instructions are for the years 2014 – 2020 and will go into force on Friday, July 18. The decision also states that any future agreement signed with Israel must include a section that says the “settlements” are not part of sovereign Israel and therefore not included in the agreement. A senior source in the Foreign Ministry said Tuesday that the new EU decision is dramatic, and can be called “a true earthquake.”
I agree, it is huge.
How dare they say what Israel’s sovereign borders are! Israel is its own nation, and sets its own borders. Going even higher, the LORD takes a personal and intimate interest in His nation and His Land.
“Now the Lord said to Abram, “Go from your country and your kindred and your father’s house to the land that I will show you. And I will make of you a great nation, and I will bless you and make your name great, so that you will be a blessing. I will bless those who bless you, and him who dishonors you I will curse, and in you all the families of the earth shall be blessed.” (Genesis 12:1-3)
Israel Condemns EU Move to Limit Funds Beyond 1967 Border
“Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said Israel would accept “no external dictates” on its borders after a European Union decision to restrict subsidies to organizations operating beyond its 1967 borders.” I would expect that anyone for whom stability and peace in the region is really important to find time to discuss this issue after resolving more urgent problems such as the civil war in Syria and Iran’s race to achieve nuclear weapons,” Netanyahu said in a text message.”
“The European Commission, the union’s executive arm, said it will soon publish “guidelines” making good on a December pledge to deny EU funding to Israeli organizations in the West Bank, Gaza Strip and Golan Heights.” All Israeli entities whose place of establishment is within the green line will be considered eligible,” EU spokeswoman Maja Kocijancic told reporters in Brussels today. The green line refers to Israel’s pre-1967 borders. The guidelines will cover central EU funding and won’t affect contracts between individual European governments and Israel, Kocijancic said. She said the result could be funding restrictions in “a very small number of cases.”
“Israeli captured the three areas during the 1967 Middle East War with its Arab neighbors. It has since withdrawn troops and evacuated settlements in Gaza and annexed the Golan in a move that has not been recognized internationally. Israel says the fate of settlements in the West Bank must be resolved in peace negotiations.”
“The EU decision shows “once again how disconnected Europe is, and why it can’t play a real partnership role in negotiations” between Israel and the Palestinians, Minister of Regional Development Silvan Shalom said today on Army Radio. Hanan Ashrawi, a member of the Palestine Liberation Organization’s Executive Committee, welcomed what she called a “significant move.” “The EU has moved from the level of statements, declarations and denunciations to effective policy decisions and concrete steps which constitute a qualitative shift that will have positive impact on the chances of peace,” she said. The decision comes before a visit to the region this week by U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry, who is trying to revive peace talks that have been suspended since 2010.”
Isolating Israel…it’s prophesied. Though the fulfillment will occur at Armageddon, the unbroken line of prophetic history hurtling us down the timeline to that moment is speeding ever closer.
“The burden of the word of the Lord concerning Israel: Thus declares the Lord, who stretched out the heavens and founded the earth and formed the spirit of man within him: “Behold, I am about to make Jerusalem a cup of staggering to all the surrounding peoples. The siege of Jerusalem will also be against Judah. “On that day I will make Jerusalem a heavy stone for all the peoples. All who lift it will surely hurt themselves. And all the nations of the earth will gather against it.” (Zechariah 12:1-3)
Netanyahu’s quote about stability and peace… yes…it’s all about peace and security.
“While people are saying, “There is peace and security,” then sudden destruction will come upon them as labor pains come upon a pregnant woman, and they will not escape.” (1 Thessalonians 5:3)
War drums beating again. We’ve had a little ‘time off’ from the near misses, brinksmanship and vitriolic rhetoric, but now it’s (sic) back. This time with action, not just words. It is widely believed that Israel is behind the strike on Syria’s Russian-anti ship missiles
U.S. Officials: Israel Behind Recent Syria Airstrike
“A series of explosions last week at a critical Syrian port was the result of airstrikes by Israeli warplanes, multiple U.S. officials told CNN on Friday. Regional media widely reported the predawn explosions at Latakia on July 5, but no one had officially claimed responsibility. Three U.S. officials told CNN the target of the airstrikes were Russian-made Yakhont anti-ship missiles that Israel believes posed a threat to its naval forces. The officials declined to be named because of the sensitive nature of the information. So far, the Israeli government has also declined to comment to CNN. The Syrian rebels said on Tuesday that “foreign forces” had destroyed advanced Russian anti-ship missiles in Latakia, hinting that Israel may have been behind the attack.”
But then later the US said for sure that Israel did the deed.
Russia did not take that lightly, or even lying down. “Coincidentally” Russia just ordered 160,000 troops to combat readiness in a “surprise drill” and said to be ready by July 13.
‘Russia stages large-scale military drills’
“Russia has staged large-scale military exercises in the country’s Eastern military district aimed at enhancing the defense capabilities of its armed forces, Defense Ministry says. The drills, which are the largest surprise check of combat readiness of the Russian military in the post-Soviet period, started on Saturday. The surprise training exercise involves over 80,000 troops, some 1,000 tanks and armored vehicles, 130 aircraft and helicopters 70 warships and will continue until July 20. “The main goal of the drills is to check the readiness of units to carry out their missions, and to assess the quality of their training and technical preparedness,” Russia’s Defense Ministry said in a statement. On Friday, during a meeting with Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu Russian, Russian President Vladimir Putin ordered an unexpected military drill, urging all forces to enter a state of full combat readiness on the night of July 13.”
Remember, there is a prophecy regarding a yet-unfulfilled battle of Psalm 83 involving a surprise attack on Israel by all of Israel’s abutting neighbors (which Israel wins, claiming the lands). There is also prophesied a surprise attack led by Russia along with Turkey and Israel’s further neighbors that is also yet unfulfilled (Ezekiel 38-39). Both of those are widely believed to be end of last day’s prophecies or prophecies to be fulfilled during the Tribulation. No one is quite sure of the order, as in which comes first or maybe they are nearly simultaneous, but many believe that Psalm 83 would be fulfilled first because Israel is said to be dwelling in the center of the Land in Ezekiel 37:12 and had accumulated much goods. Israel is prophesied to in the Psalm 83 battle and it is supposed that she spreads out and occupies her abutting, by then defeated neighbors. None of these neighbors make another murmur, and are not listed in the Gog-Magog coalition, so it seems that they would be set aside or nullified first. Many believe that a defeat in Psalm 83 does the trick.
Isaiah 17:1 and onward prophesies the complete destruction of Damascus, Syria and its environs. This also has never been fulfilled.
“On that day I will make the clans of Judah like a blazing pot in the midst of wood, like a flaming torch among sheaves. And they shall devour to the right and to the left all the surrounding peoples, while Jerusalem shall again be inhabited in its place, in Jerusalem.” (Zechariah 12:6)
Iranian Nukes on the Horizon – Noah Beck -http://frontpagemag.com/2013/noah-beck/iranian-nukes-on-the-horizon/
President Obama’s Middle East policy has been an ever-worsening train wreck because it lacks credibility and strategy, as Egypt, Libya, and particularly Syria, have shown. And the region is about to get much worse, unless Obama exercises resolute leadership on the most important global security issue of this generation: Iran’s pursuit of nuclear weapons.
In a commerce-critical region where “might makes right” and only the strong survive, Iran’s acquisition of nuclear weapons could have catastrophic consequences for the Middle East and beyond. The resulting dangers potentially include: (i) nuclear proliferation, as other Mideast countries feel threatened into pursuing their own nuclear programs; (ii) the transfer of nuclear materials from Iran – the world’s chief sponsor of terrorism – to terrorist organizations and/or rogue states; (iii) bolder attacks by Iranian terror proxies (Hamas, Hezbollah, Islamic Jihad, etc.) protected by Iran’s nuclear umbrella; and (iv) an even more belligerent Iran that flexes its nuclear arsenal to: export its radical Islamic ideology, acquire disputed territories and resources from neighboring countries, and/or undertake actions like blocking the Strait of Hormuz to increase the price of oil.
As Israel’s Prime Minister, Benjamin Netanyahu, recently told CBS News’s Face the Nation, the Islamic Republic is now dangerously close to a nuclear capability. Because Iran has stockpiled about 190 pounds of 20% enriched uranium, Iran is just 60 kilograms – potentially just weeks – short of crossing the nuclear “red line” that Netanyahu set in his speech before the UN last September.
Unfortunately, Obama has signaled no urgency over Iranian nukes. Perhaps he hopes for a negotiated settlement to the issue, now that Hassan Rouhani, a so-called “moderate,” was elected to assume Iran’s presidency next month. But hope is not a strategy with the Iranian regime. Rouhani has been linked to the 1994 terrorist bombing of an Argentine Jewish community center that killed 85 people, and has boasted about how he manipulated nuclear talks with the West about a decade ago to expand Iran’s nuclear program. More importantly, Iran’s foreign policy is set by Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, who has banned concessions to the West. Indeed, Fereydoun Abbasi-Davani, the head of Iran’s atomic energy agency, made it clear last Friday that Rouhani’s election will have no impact on Iran’s nuclear enrichment activities.
Obama must also recognize that the sanctions against Iran have demonstrably failed. The Islamic Republic has skillfully outmaneuvered them, as shown in a leaked U.N. report detailing 11 instances of Iran violating sanctions, including attempts to acquire materials for its atomic program. Reuters published an expose outlining how Iran exploits sanctions loopholes to import ore from Germany and France that could be used for making armor and missiles. More importantly, the Iranian nuclear weapons program has never once stopped because of sanctions. The only time that Iran ever suspended its nuclear program was after the U.S. invasion of Iraq, when Iran briefly feared that a U.S. attack was imminent.
Obama’s Iran policy has thus far failed to produce any credible deterrent. It’s time for Obama to build on the lead of Canadian Foreign Minister John Baird, who warned last month that Iran only has only a few months to demonstrate to the West that it is serious about a negotiated solution to the standoff.
Israel doesn’t have the luxury of treating its red lines the way Obama has treated the one he set for Syria’s use of chemical weapons; that means that the volatile Middle East of today could become far more engulfed in war and instability. Netanyahu’s latest message may be the canary in the coalmine giving its final warning, so Obama should provide bold leadership on this critical issue before it’s too late. New Jersey-sized Israel survives only by the strength of the military force that it projects. Critical to that deterrent is making good on its threats, as Israel did with its destruction of the Iraqi and Syrian nuclear programs, in 1981 and 2007, respectively, and its ongoing surgical airstrikes to prevent Syria from transferring game-changing weapons to Hezbollah.
Given such exploits, isolationists might wonder why the U.S. should bother; let Israel bear all of the costs and risks of eliminating the Iranian nuclear threat for us, goes the thinking. But the nuclear program in Iran is far more dispersed, hardened, and distant than what Israel neutralized in Iraq and Syria. Iranian nukes are truly vulnerable only to U.S. military capabilities. Expecting Israel to do the job is like a heavyweight-boxing champion asking his featherweight friend to defend him against the approaching middleweight champion. Such cowardly tactics needlessly endanger the featherweight ally, but – more importantly – there is a good chance that the middleweight won’t be fully neutralized and will feel far more emboldened to attack the heavyweight after he concludes (alongside the rest of the world) that the heavyweight is just a paper tiger.
Iran can already attack U.S. interests across the Middle East and Europe. And as early as 2015, Iran could develop and test ballistic missiles that could strike the continental U.S., according to a Pentagon report released last week (“2013 Ballistic and Cruise Missile Threat Assessment”). Obama can wait for the U.S. to be drawn into war with a nuclear-armed Iran, or he can proactively address the threat before Iran acquires nukes. But he cannot hide from the threat or hope it away. Obama must lead – before Iran’s nuclear recalcitrance forces Israel’s hand, with potentially apocalyptic consequences.

Only God Can Help You Now
By Jerry Golden

Obama first made it a hate crime to speak out against homosexuals, and taught the children in public schools to accept homosexuality as an alternative lifestyle. He forced it upon the US military, and is now making it the law of the land to allow queers to be legally married.
In the short time Kerry has been the Secretary of State he has made 5 trips to Israel trying to force a Two State Solution – dividing Israel by giving the enemies of God the Land he promised to the Jews. He has made the prudence of the USA the laughing stock of the world and the Devil’s delight.
There is, deep in my spirit, a reverberating echo of that still small voice I know so well, that is saying; “They think they know better, they think they can laugh in my face with their filthy perverted life style, they believe there are no consequences for their mockery of My Word.”
Europe, for the most part, has become Godless. Living in the fear and hate of Islam with leaders who seem to be spineless in the face of this fear and hate that has overtaken them.
Now fasten your eyes on Israel and see the great hand of God move in His Glory and Power. A great war is about to begin. Not the final battle of Armageddon but the war of Zechariah 12 – followed by a great outpouring of anti-Semitism against Jews and Israel. It is mostly during this time period we will need boats and all the help we can get to save as many Jews as we possibly can, with your help. Gen. 12:3.
Pray for the peace of Jerusalem, for our son Joel and all the IDF, pray for this ministry and your part in it.
Shalom, Jerry Golden
