Whew, what a relief! Looks like we really dodged a bullet with this Iran “peace deal” thing. So, not to worry: We give Iran $50B as a “signing bonus,” they only use a “little bit” of the money to sponsor terrorism around the world. Via IJ Review: Obama Cabinet Official: ‘Most’ of the Relief Money to Iran Won’t Fund Terrorism Treasury Secretary Jack Lew acknowledged that large sums of money will be given to Iran as part of the sanctions relief, adding that “most” of it won’t directly fund terrorist operations in the Middle East…. During Lew’s remarks, he said that Iran will be under “enormous pressure” to improve its domestic economy, adding that funding terrorism is a “relatively small”...

Pic via Independent Sentinel So, in the Alternate Universe of the Obama Regime, Iran is no longer the biggest sponsor of terrorism in the world? Did US intelligence just remove Iran and Hezbollah from its worldwide threats terror list? If true, jaw-dropping. http://t.co/GbFoNhg3Ex — Stephen Hayes (@stephenfhayes) March 16, 2015 Via Weekly Standard: Ahead of Deal, Top Intel Organization Plays Down Iran’s Sponsorship of Terrorism Sunday night, Stephen Hayes noted (via Twitter) a Times of Israel article that the 2015 Worldwide Threat Assessment of the U.S. Intelligence Communities delivered annually by Director of National Intelligence James Clapper to a Senate committee had “removed Iran and Hezbollah from its list of terrorism threats” after having been included in prior years.

Kudos to PM Benjamin Netanyahu for continuing to praise Obama in the face of outrageous WH Bibi-bashing. And shame on our thin-skinned POTUS, who could have put on his “big-boy pants” and met with Netanyahu. Instead, he chose to sulk, and he encouraged Dems to boycott the speech. And after Netanyahu’s speech, the WH National Security Council put out this tweet: Interesting take from @FareedZakaria on why PM Netanyahu's predictions on #Iran have been wrong for 25 years http://t.co/SHffz3GPOj — WH National Security (@NSCPress) March 6, 2015 Here is Netanyahu’s response: Via NY Post: Obama administration, Netanyahu bicker on Twitter Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu took the Obama administration to task Sunday for using Twitter to call his stance on...

This information was apparently released by "officials" who are concerned about the lack of Western response. Everyone should be concerned. Any nuclear bomb with any yield in the hands of savages like Islamists is a doomsday weapon, something about which Obama does not seem concerned.

Two things going on here--the height of moral equivalency and regular pot use. What else could explain this rambling, nonsensical drivel? PIERS MORGAN: What would you do about Iran if you were the American President? TED TURNER: Well, first of all, I believe in total nuclear disarmament. That's the only way we're ever going to get there. We all got to play by the same set of rules...

A post by Pat No, not at airports. It has recently come to President Obama’s attention that unethical research took place from 1946 to 1948 and we must be sure it doesn’t happen again. Back then the U.S. Health Department engaged in research in a Guatemalan mental hospital, infecting human subjects with syphilis. Obama, not wanting to put off dealing with a tough issue of immediate concern, has asked Dr. Amy Gutmann—Chair, Presidential Commission for the Study of Bioethical Issues—to form a panel to review federal regulations and standards with respect to participants in scientific studies. The Commission is instructed to consult with international experts, especially Guatemalans, and hold at least one meeting outside the U.S. Very attentive to detail...

A post by Pat Oops, the Russians just realized they don’t have enough money to get rid of all their chemical weapons. They must be so embarrassed. Only a few months ago they reaffirmed their commitment to destroy chemical weapons by 2012. Someone must have been pilfering from the kopeck jar. Russia to miss chemical weapons deadline – statement, Aug 2, 2010 A federal government decree pushing Russia’s target date back to 2015 is being drafted and Moscow has informed the United States and other Chemical Weapons Convention member states of the delay, the Kirov region government said in a statement. The 1997 pact obliges nations to eliminate chemical weapons stocks by 2012. The United States and Russia, by far...
