A FEW RANDOM THOUGHTS ON IRAN
The Iranian leadership are an apocalyptic, Islamist Twelver death cult dedicated to the destruction of Israel, the murder of all Jews, the destruction of America and the subjugation of the world under the heel of Islam, led by them.
They have bargained in bad faith, and have built multiple nuclear weapon facilities in specific violation of agreements, both signed and verbal.
They continue, at a feverish pace, to complete their nuclear weapons programs.
They have made clear their intention to strike Israel with nuclear weapons.
Barack Obama has not only bargained from a position of weakness, he has repeatedly set red lines and rescinded them. The Iranians know he is so desperate for a deal with them—on their terms—he will do anything to get it, including allow them to build and use nuclear weapons. Apocalyptic fanatics cannot be contained.
Everything Mr. Obama is doing is based on feeding his ego, which is limitless.
Likely, he is hoping against hope that the Iranians won’t bomb Israel—or America—until he is out of office, so he, and the Democrats, can blame it on someone else—anyone else.
THESE ARE THE PEOPLE WITH WHOM BARACK OBAMA ALIGNS HIMSELF AGAINST ISRAEL
Iran is encouraging its terror allies to pursue the assassination of Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s children by publishing personal information about them, including photographs of the kids lined up in crosshairs, and declaring, “We must await the hunt of Hezbollah.”
The publication of the personal information and biographies of Netanyahu’s children follows an Israeli airstrike last week that killed several key Hezbollah leaders and an Iranian commander affiliated with the country’s hardline Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC).
THE MUSLIM BROTHERHOOD: OUR KIND OF PEOPLE
More Islamists the Obama Administration thinks we can work with:
The Muslim Brotherhood called for ‘a long, uncompromising jihad’ in Egypt just days after a delegation of the Islamist group’s key leaders and allies met with the State Department, according to an official statement released this week.
Just days after a delegation that included two top Brotherhood leaders was hosted at the State Department, the organization released an official statement calling on its supporters to ‘prepare’ for jihad, according to an independent translation of the statement first posted on Tuesday.
The State Department meeting was attended by a deputy assistant secretary for democracy, human rights, and labor and other State Department officials.
Barack Obama and John Kerry’s kind of people.
GAFFE: WHEN A POLITICIAN ACCIDENTLY TELLS THE TRUTH
This guy is the Vice President of the United States. No, really…
At an event this morning [01-30-15], Vice President Joe Biden told Democrats that, To state the obvious, the past six years have been really, really hard for this country.’
‘And they’ve been really tough for our party. Just ask [former DCCC chair] Steve [Israel]. They’ve been really tough for our party. And together we made some really, really tough decisions — decisions that weren’t at all popular, hard to explain,’ said Biden.
Biden was speaking at the House Democratic Caucus retreat in Philadelphia.
WHY DIDN’T HE DO THIS EARLIER?
Lt. General (four star rank) Michael Flynn, the head of the Defense Intelligence Agency, recently retired. and he is letting President Obama have it:
There is no substitute, none, for American power,’ the general said, to occasional cheers and ultimately a standing ovation from a crowd of special operators and intelligence officers at a Washington industry conference.
He also slammed the administration for refusing to use the term ‘Islamic militants’ in its description of ISIS and al Qaeda.
‘You cannot defeat an enemy you do not admit exists,’ Flynn said.
So why didn’t he say this, and more earlier? Because our military is ultimately civilian controlled, military officers–and troops–may not disparage those civilian leaders, the president being the top of the heap. A high-ranking officer compelled to do that has only one choice: resign. The other alternative is to remain silent and in place in the hope that one will be able to stave off the worst tendencies and policies of a corrupt, dangerous administration, because without ethical, professional people working below the radar, there are surely more than enough unscrupulous ass-kissers that would be willing to do whatever was required to climb the rank ladder, regardless of the damage to their service or the nation.
I don’t know General Flynn, but that was surely his choice.
LOUIS RENAULT AWARD OF THE WEEK:
I’m shocked, shocked that the TSA would be unethical! Not in the Obama Administration! It was double-talking South Dakota Senator Tom Daschle that asserted that the only way to professionalize was to federalize, and we know how well that has worked out:
Current and former federal air marshals allege that the Transportation Security Administration intentionally hid embarrassing information about supervisors’ misconduct and targeted employees who sought to expose the truth.
The allegations revolve around TSA management’s overuse of an agency-specific designation called Sensitive Security Information (SSI). Though it is not classified, information deemed SSI is supposed to be kept from the public because it would harm transportation security. The marshals claim that the TSA has repeatedly abused the SSI classification, even going so far as to use it on fictitious information, in an effort to keep the public in the dark.
One current federal air marshal, whose name has been withheld for fear of retaliation, asserts that the TSA has repeatedly sought to silence its employees.
‘When it comes to the Air Marshal Service and TSA, when they are determined to f*** you, they are going to f***ing do everything in their power to make you out to be the bad guy, and they will twist every single word that they can to reflect their position [rather] than the truth,’ says the marshal. ‘They want you to shut up, get on the plane, and sit down. They don’t want to fix any of the problems that exist.
By all means, read the entire article, and remember, the Obama Administration’s first priority is your safety.
THEY’RE COMING HERE
Did you know an American citizen was recently killed in an ISIS terrorist attack on a hotel in in Tripoli? President Obama and the media would rather you didn’t.
ISIS and Al Qaeda are increasingly mounting and calling for attacks on soft targets as a means of deterring Western assaults on their strongholds — a strategy that is extending the reach of terrorism to hotels, cafés, supermarkets and malls where Europeans and Americans once felt safe.
ISIS, or Islamic State, and its sympathizers around the globe have claimed responsibility for several recent strikes on Western citizens, and the terrorist army’s reach has extended deeper into the everyday lives of Westerners in their homelands or abroad. Last week’s attack at a Tripoli hotel left one American and one French victim dead, and was the latest in a spate of planned and lone wolf attacks, including the Charlie Hebdo massacre, a siege at a Paris supermarket and another deadly hostage-taking at a cafe in Sydney.
‘Their early actions were all about building a state, but when the international coalition forces began attacking them, they started to become very active in their videos and their propaganda on social media, telling their followers to act,’ said Steve Stalinsky, executive director of U.S.-based Middle East Research Institute, which monitors and analyzes jihadist and other communications.

They’re coming here, and our government is doing nothing to stop them.
I DIDN’T LIE; I WAS HONORING VETERANS!
The Lamestream Media is unimpeachable because its reporters are so professional and believable. No guys in their pajamas here:
NBC Nightly News’ anchor Brian Williams apologized Wednesday for falsely claiming that he had been aboard a helicopter that was shot down during the invasion of Iraq in 2003, Stars and Stripes reports.
On Friday night’s broadcast, Williams cited ‘a terrible moment a dozen years back during the invasion of Iraq when the helicopter we were traveling in was forced down after being hit by an RPG. Our traveling NBC News team was rescued, surrounded and kept alive by an armor mechanized platoon from the U.S. Army 3rd Infantry.’
One crew member responded to the story on Facebook the following day, writing to Williams, ‘Sorry dude, I don’t remember you being on my aircraft. I do remember you walking up about an hour after we had landed to ask me what had happened.
Take the link and watch what passes for an apology in the Lamestream Media. Disgusting.
AND SPEAKING OF HONESTY AND WAR STORIES, REMEMBER THE LIONESS OF TUZLA?
The Democrat front-runner for the 2016 presidential race is showing the usual democrat integrity. Remember this one from the 2008 campaign?
Hillary Clinton has conceded that she ‘did misspeak’ about landing in Bosnia under sniper fire, blaming tiredness for a dramatic description that was shown to have been significantly exaggerated.
The Democratic candidate is engaged in a frantic damage-limitation exercise amid widespread derision of her comments about a visit to Tuzla in 1996.
‘I remember landing under sniper fire,’ she said in Washington on Monday. ‘There was supposed to be some kind of a greeting ceremony at the airport, but instead we just ran with our heads down to get into the vehicles to get to our base.’
News footage of the event however showed her claims to have been wide of the mark, and reporters who accompanied her stated that there was no sniper fire. Her account was ridiculed by ABC News as ‘like a scene from Saving Private Ryan’.
After initially dismissing the controversy over her comments as a ‘minor blip’, she told a Pittsburgh radio station: ‘You know I have written about this and described it in many different settings and I did misspeak the other day. This has been a very long campaign. Occasionally, I am a human being like everybody else.’
She insisted it was the ‘first time in 12 years’ she had spoken inaccurately about the trip.
But her Bosnia anecdote has been a regular feature of her stump speeches.
After Barack Obama, that sort of lack of integrity might actually be an improvement.
MAN’S BEST FRIEND
You must take the link and read the whole thing. It’s one of the most heart-warming stories I’ve seen in a long time, and there are plenty of photos. It’s not all bad out there, gentle readers, and this is one story with a genuinely happy ending.
Exhausted, covered in mud and desperately hungry, a team of Swedish athletes sat down for a meal as they prepared to take on a dangerous 20-mile trek through the Ecuadorian rainforest.
As they opened their canned meat, a tired Mikael Lindnord noticed a scruffy, miserable stray dog staring at him out of the corner of his eye.
Feeling sorry for him, he fed the dog a meatball and thought nothing of it, but as the team stood up to continue their race the animal started to follow them – and he didn’t stop.
As the group of four navigated the final two stages of the 430-mile Adventure Racing World Championship, the dog befriended them and was eventually given the name Arthur.
Every grueling task the team face, Arthur would do the same. He swam alongside them while they kayaked down rivers, dragged himself up hills during hikes and pulled through knee-deep mud during treks.
Even when the team tried to get rid of their new member out of concerns for his safety – he refused to leave.
And this week, baby rhinos, baby tigers, and a blind baby seal. Oh dear.
SEE YOU NEXT WEEK!
