John Kerry stunned – STUNNED – that Iran doesn’t like us
I’m starting to think that John Kerry may not know what in the hell he’s doing. DUBAI (Reuters) – U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry said a speech by Iranian Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei on Saturday vowing to defy American policies in the region despite a deal with world powers over Tehran’s nuclear program was “very disturbing”. “I don’t know how to interpret it at | Read More »
Hillary “TINA” Clinton Falls In Line On Iran
If You Believe Hillary, This Is Your Sign. Streiff’s hilarious concept of failure theatre comes in multiple genres. I’d like to propose yet another taxonomy thereof. In honor of Hillary Rodham Clinton’s completely submissive position of the disastrous Iran deal, I give you The TINA Show. TINA is an argument that gets made when a politician feels compelled to support a | Read More »

Obama Administration Continues Insolent Tone with Media over American “Hostages” Abandoned in Iran
The Obama Administration is adding insult to injury. After President Obama attacked a reporter questioning his decision to make a deal with Iran leaving four American hostages behind as “nonsense,” Undersecretary of State Wendy Sherman continued this insolent tone yesterday.
Instead of merely addressing a question about the hostages, Undersecretary Sherman attacked the reporter’s characterization of the wrongfully imprisoned Americans as “hostages.”
Not hostages? That’s absurd.

King Hubbert entitled “Nuclear Energy and The Fossil Fuels.” He noticed that an oil field was a finite resource and that it’s productive performance could be modeled by building a Gaussian | Read More »
Barack Obama: Willful Patsy

Though she received a life sentence, Chesimard fled to Cuba where she has been taking refuge from the American legal system ever since.

Moral Cowardice: President Obama Abandons Pastor Saeed and 3 Other Imprisoned Americans in Iran
In a stunning display of moral cowardice, President Obama struck a nuclear deal with Iran that leaves four U.S. citizens, including American Pastor Saeed Abedini, imprisoned in Iran.
They’ve been abandoned. And for what?
The “historic” deal with Iran grants it billions of dollars in sanctions relief and new trade, a pathway to a nuclear weapon, and the privilege of being one of the only nuclear powers in the Middle East. What does it give up? Nothing.
In exchange for that epic disaster, President Obama is leaving behind four Americans. It’s diplomatic malpractice.

We Already Know What Will Happen
We already know what is going to happen with Iran. In a few years, there will be an underground nuclear detonation signaling that Iran has learned to make a bomb and is deploying a nuclear arsenal. It will destabilize the region and provoke a war that is even now foreseeable. But until the moment the seismographs register the nuclear explosion, Democrats and the media will | Read More »
US Giving up on Military Inspections of Iran Nuke Sites
The news from the Iranian nuclear program negotiations in Vienna just keeps getting worse. Now, it seems like the United States is going to give up on military inspections that could be anything close to effective. From the AFP: “We have worked out a process that we believe will ensure that the IAEA has the access it needs,” the administration official told reporters. “The entry | Read More »

US troops sharing bases with Iranian led militias in Iraq
Back when the President of the United States was still interested in maintaining US power in the Middle East, we had troops in Iraq who were actually involved in killing terrorists. The most potent weapon against our troops was the roadside bomb that created what was called an “explosively formed penetrator.” This device enabled a relatively primitive and decidedly low-tech weapon to defeat a lot | Read More »
