Surprise: Iran declares it has found new uranium deposits
If the situation were not so dire, I would be laughing. Not must a gentle chuckle, but a rollicking, bowel-loosening belly laugh. Iran has discovered an unexpectedly high reserve of uranium and will soon begin extracting the radioactive element at a new mine, the head of Iran’s Atomic Energy Organisation said on Saturday. The comments cast doubt on previous assessments from some Western analysts who | Read More »
The Blood on Barack Obama’s Hands
The warning signs were there in 2009. President Manuel Zelaya of Honduras sought a referendum to change the Constitution of Honduras to allow himself a longer tenure in office. The Honduran Constitution permanently bars multiple terms and it is not an amendable provision of the nation’s constitution. The Honduran Supreme Court ruled that Zelaya had overstepped his bounds and Zelaya sought to stir up civil | Read More »

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 »

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.

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.
