  • Obama Gains Enough Senate Votes to Block Iran Deal Opposition

    09/08/2015 11:44:08 AM PDT · by conservativejoy · 29 replies ^ | 9/8/2015 | Charlie Spierling
    President Obama has earned enough Democratic votes in the Senate to filibuster a Senate effort to block the Iran nuclear deal, if necessary. On Monday, Sens Sen. Gary Peters (D-MI) , Sen. Ron Wyden (D-OR) , and Sen. Richard Blumenthal (D-CT) announced their support for the deal, tallying enough votes to successfully filibuster the deal. Sen. Joe Manchin (D-WV) announced his opposition to the deal in a surprise defection from Obama, citing Iran’s support of terrorism and the death of American soldiers. “This regime has shown no signs that its deplorable behavior will change, and this deal does nothing to...

    With a late-November deadline approaching, America's top diplomat is plunging back into Iranian nuclear talks with one eye on his adversary and the other on developments at home, as pressure rises in Washington for a deal ensuring the Islamic republic cannot become a nuclear state. The prospect of a Republican takeover of the Senate means Secretary of State John Kerry will be on a tight leash.

    During a speech on the Senate floor Tuesday afternoon, Texas senator Ted Cruz said that people who think his plan to defund Obamacare can't work would have opposed fighting Nazi Germany if they had been alive in the 1940s. Cruz first argued that skeptics of the defund-or-shutdown plan would have surrendered during the American Revolution and the Civil War. "I guarantee you all of the pundits that we see going on TV and intoning in deep baritone voices, 'this cannot be done,' if we were back in the 18th century, they would be going on, I don't know, maybe pigeon...

    America is a seething hotbed of “Islamophobia,” filled with ignorant racist rubes who irrationally fear the benign Muslim religion, according to the Obama administration’s lead investigator into the Benghazi atrocities. So said former Ambassador Thomas R. Pickering in more polished, diplomatic language during an Oct. 23 panel discussion at the National Cathedral in Washington, D.C. The talk was on “what role the faith community can play in fighting Islamophobia,” a make-believe mental illness that Islamists would love to have listed in the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders. Radical Islam’s stateside defenders frequently accuse anti-terrorism hawks of “McCarthyism,” hurling...

Conversely, activists on the right are free to exercise the power of their pocketbooks and refrain from supporting businesses that shun their values. So, what are you waiting for, conservatives?

He's won praise from party elders, including 2008 GOP presidential nominee John McCain, who called the governor a potentially promising contender in 2012. Huntsman has...

Tory Baroness Sayeeda Warsi fears a sharp increase in polygamy in the UK is becoming a threat to community cohesion. And she accused Labour ministers of turning a blind eye to the practice, which is common in some Islamic countries. The Government must make it clear to Muslims that “in this country, one married man is allowed to marry one woman,” she said. Most Muslim polygamous arrangements are not illegal because the “weddings” are private religious ceremonies that are not...

In an interview with the Guardian, Stella Rimington calls al-Qaida's attack on the US "another terrorist incident" but not qualitatively different from any others. "That's not how it struck me. I suppose I'd lived with terrorist events for a good part of my working life and this was as far as I was concerned another one," she says. In common with Dame Eliza...

Our very existence as a people and as a faith is in jeopardy. The threat to our survival has two components to it: the external siege being waged against Israel and the Jewish people throughout the world by the international jihadist movement, its sympathizers and appeasers; and the internal siege that we Jews, both in Israel and in the Diaspora, including the United States, are waging against ourselves.

The report released this week said Iran once had a covert nuclear weapons program, but shut it down in 2003. The authors" aim is to undercut the White House effort to increase pressure for sanctions on Iran and to argue that Iran dropped its nuclear-weapons program in 2003 because of diplomatic efforts in which the authors had participated, the officials...

    For the third straight year, British academics have made a substantial move toward a boycott of Israeli academics. Yesterday, the policymaking congress of the U.K.'s University and College Union voted 158 to 99 to recommend to its 120,000 members that they bar academic exchanges with Israeli researchers. The move, which will be considered over the next year, seeks to pressure Israel to improve its relations with Palestinians. If passed, the boycott could alienate Israeli scientists from a nation considered an ally of the Jewish state. In response to the vote, the British Royal Society reiterated a 5-year-old statement against such...

Reid said he told Bush on Wednesday that he thought the war could not be won through military force and only through political, economic and diplomatic means.

Much of what was generated got lost in the fog of war, but the long arm of history will retrieve these moments. As the president said in his news conference this week, if they’re still writing about No. 1—George Washington—there’s plenty of time before the historians can properly evaluate No. 43. Judging by the mess in Iraq, it could be 200 or 300 years—if ever—before Bush is vindicated....

    The first cracks in the united front over Iraq between Tony Blair and President Bush appeared last night as the Prime Minister offered Iran and Syria the prospect of dialogue over the future of Iraq and the Middle East. Mr Blair said there could be a new “partnership” with Iran if it stopped supporting terrorism in Iraq and gave up its nuclear ambitions. Syria and Iran could choose partnership or isolation, he said. The Prime Minister tried to exploit moves in Washington to rethink strategy on Iraq by holding out the prospect of engagement with two countries once dubbed by...

    The Ming dynasty emperors in China (1368-1644) were the biggest builders of the famous Great Wall. A native Chinese dynasty coming to power in the wake of a Mongol occupation, they wanted to strengthen their defenses against the nomadic peoples to the north. But a Manchu army crossed over it and conquered them anyway. In the years after World War I, France, recognizing its weakness vis-ŕ-vis Germany, built a supposedly invincible fortification along its frontier with Germany called the Maginot Line. Built very high, of concrete and steel, with forts at 10-mile intervals, the wall nonetheless failed to prevent Germany...

The country could respond to the terrorist attacks on the World Trade Center and the Pentagon in an opportunistic manner defined by ignorance, raw emotion and political cowardice. Or the country could respond with the seriousness that the incidents of Sept. 11, 2001, demanded. George Bush chose the cavalier course. His refusal to stretch beyond his own weakness has cost the United States and the world dearly. Osama bin Laden and his chief lieutenants remain at large. The...

    Islam enjoys a large and influential ally among the non-Muslims: A new generation of “Useful Idiots,” the sort of people Lenin identified living in liberal democracies who furthered the work of communism. This new generation of Useful Idiots also lives in liberal democracies, but serves the cause of Islamofascism—another virulent form of totalitarian ideology. Useful Idiots are naďve, foolish, ignorant of facts, unrealistically idealistic, dreamers, willfully in denial or deceptive. They hail from the ranks of the chronically unhappy, the anarchists, the aspiring revolutionaries, the neurotics who are at war with life, the disaffected alienated from government, corporations, and just...

    Spy Case May Offer Clues How Chinese Missile Ended Up in Hezbollah's Arsenal by Ed TimperlakePosted Jul 26, 2006In February 1999, Dr. Ronald N. Montaperto was identified by PBS’ News Hour during a segment on “human rights in China” as “a senior fellow at the Institute for National Strategic Studies at National Defense University.” He was also said to be “advising the Pentagon on Chinese military issues.” At the same time he was preening for PBS, however, he was an espionage agent for the People’s Republic of China. A joint Naval Criminal Investigative Service (NCIS) and FBI investigation nailed Montaperto’s...
  • Farewell to the United Nations?

    Historian David Littman is a representative to the United Nations (Geneva) of the Association for World Education. He has spent years tracking the rise of Islamic influence at the UN. According to him, “In recent years, representatives of some Muslim states have demanded, and often received, special treatment at the United Nations.” “As a result, non-diplomatic terms such as ‘blasphemy’ and ‘defamation of Islam’ have seeped into the United Nations system, leading to a situation in which non-Muslim governments accept certain rules of conduct in conformity with Islamic law (the Shari’a) and acquiesce to a self-imposed silence regarding topics touching...
  • Knocking the French: Why?

    But we Americans seem to have short memories. What else could explain the fact that we, generally speaking, so-often lambaste the French, calling them “cowards” for not allying themselves fully with us in every instance? We constantly throw in their faces the fact that we came to their rescue in World Wars I and II. And we’ve all heard the jokes: “Surplus French military rifles for sale. Never fired. Dropped once.”

    IN these violent times, Um Ahmed takes steps to ensure her safety, strapping on a suicide belt before going to bed at night. The mother-of-eight is one of a group of 20 women who, according to the local al-Aqsa Martyrs Brigades commander, is prepared to die for her cause, should there be an unexpected Israeli assault on Abasa, near the southern Gaza town of Khan Younis. Ahmed, and women like her, are changing the face of terrorism by declaring their willingness to die for the cause. The first recorded suicide bomber involved in the Israeli-Palestinian conflict was a woman, 28-year-old...

    Death of the concept What else has to happen before the architects of this catastrophe admit their failure? Meir Eindor The entire new concept of security, based on the notion that Israel should dig in and realign itself behind a fortified wall, crumbled at Kerem Shalom. Once and for all it was proven that there is no substitute for a strong IDF presence in areas where terrorists organize. The evacuated area has been filled with dozens of sub-groups of terror organizations, and hundreds of armed cells receive weapons, some from "official" sources, some (mostly anti-tank weapons) which move freely across...

    ON WEDNESDAY, June 7, U.S. military forces, in President Bush's words, "delivered justice to the most wanted terrorist in Iraq," Abu Musab al Zarqawi. Before considering the possible implications for the war in Iraq and the global struggle against terror, we should pause to celebrate so striking an instance of injustice avenged, and justice vindicated. The unjust--even the barbarically unjust--prevail all too often in this world. It is good for civilized people to see, as Marshall Wittmann put it, that "evil has suffered a setback." In the blunt words of Paul Bigley of the United Kingdom, whose brother Ken was...

    BRUSSELS (Reuters) - The European Union pledged on Monday to make Iran a generous offer of technology, economic and other incentives but stressed Tehran must comply first with international demands to halt sensitive nuclear activities. The 25-member bloc wants to present Iran with a stark choice of accepting the offer, expected to be delivered around the end of the month, or risk seeing international support grow for a U.N. resolution that would pave the way for possible sanctions. "It will be a generous package, a bold package that will contain issues related to nuclear, economic matters and maybe if necessary...

    Oil prices slipped off record highs above $75 a barrel in Asian trade this morning on profit-taking after the market's unprecedented advance last week. But dealers said continuing concerns over Iran's controversial nuclear programme would keep crude prices above $70 until the issue was resolved. The market's slight cooling came after global finance chiefs called for action against runaway oil prices and OPEC member Kuwait proposed reactivating standby capacity in an effort to prevent further increases. New York's main contract, light sweet crude for June delivery, was at $74.85 compared with its record close of $75.17 in the US on...

    OIL has raced to an all-time high as Iran continued to defy world pressure to halt its nuclear programme, while a quarter of Nigeria's output lay idle after rebel attacks and Iraq's once considerable oil industry was mired in crisis. Without naming the United States directly, Iran's oil minister, Vaziri Hamaneh, said that countries trying to intimidate his country over what it regards as its right to enrich uranium were the ones to blame for the nervousness that has rattled oil markets, with prices now over $75 a barrel. "Research in enrichment should not be the cause for that sort...
