Europeans Rush to Profit From Iran Nuke Deal

Apparently the EU and their corporate counterparts have jumped onboard the Obama bandwagon to approve the Iran nuke deal hoping to reap the benefits of its nuclear proliferation. Unfortunately, the geopolitics of this maneuver jeopardize the safety and security of every nation, as Iran holds the trophy for being the kingpin in the world of terror.

Soeren Kern GATESTONE INSTITUTE

Middle East expert Ilan Berman points out that for Iran, trading with Europe is actually the perfect self-defense, a virtual guarantee that it will not face military attack if it cheats on its obligations under the nuclear deal.
Sanctions will also be lifted on Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei’s $95 billion business empire, as well as on Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps, which operates a vast network of companies and industries. No wonder European media outlets are referring to Iran as the “new El Dorado,” the “chance of a century,” and the “last untapped market.”
“Conducting business with the Iranian regime means to finance the nuclear program, the annihilation threats against Israel, Holocaust denial, the export of Islamist terror and the oppression of the Iranian population.” — Stop the Bomb, Austria.
“Everyone is looking at Iran with greed.” — Senior French official.
European politicians and business leaders, resembling the running of the bulls in Spain, are falling over themselves in a rush to secure the “first-mover” advantage in Iran’s $400 billion economy.

Under the nuclear deal reached in Vienna on July 14, international sanctions will be removed on Iran’s banking, energy and trade sectors if Tehran agrees to certain curbs on its nuclear program.

The lifting of sanctions on Iran, a market of 80 million consumers (the second-largest market in the Middle East after Turkey in terms of GDP) creates the potential for staggering business opportunities.

Obama in Violation of the Constitution, Re-Establishes a Relationship with Cuba

Once again, our president negotiated a dangerous deal normalizing relations with a Communist government, Cuba, and placed ‘Human Rights’ on the back table.

by Frank de Varona

On December 17, 2014, President Barack Obama unilaterally reestablished diplomatic relations with Cuba in violation of the Helms-Burton law and the Constitution. The surprise announcement came at the end of 18 months of secret talks behind the backs of Congress and the American and Cuban people.

In June 2013, Obama sent two White House officials, Benjamin J. Rhodes and Ricardo Zúñiga, to meet in secret with Cuban officials and begin negotiations. Nine meetings were held, most of them in Canada, which has diplomatic relations with Cuba. Once again, Americans were left in the dark while the corrupt and deceptive Obama administration decided to help the anti-American terrorist and corrupt oppressive Cuban regime. To minimize criticism, Obama’s announcement was made after Congress had adjourned for the Christmas holidays. Pope Francis encouraged the negotiations. Unfortunately, the Pope did not demand, as neither did Obama, that the tyrant Raúl Castro respect human rights, hold free and fair elections, and release all political prisoners.

The day that Obama made the abominable announcement of normalizing relations with the tyranny that has oppressed the Cuban people for 56 years, the price of a barrel of oil was $55.93. The Venezuelan communist regime cannot survive unless the price of a barrel of oil is at least $130. The communist regime receives 94% of its income from oil exports. Since the price of oil is expected continue being very low in 2015 and beyond, as the result of increased oil production in the United States, Venezuela is about to go bankrupt.

Communist Cuba depends on the free oil that it receives from Venezuela to survive. It was for this reason that the Cuban dictator Raúl Castro started an aggressive campaign in the United States with communist officials of the Obama administration, as well as communist members of Congress and other useful idiots, to lift the embargo and to be recognized diplomatically. The Cuban tyrant knew that without the help of the United States the communist regime would also go bankrupt and that a change of government could possibly take place in Cuba.

Barack Obama, who has admired Fidel Castro for many years together with his preacher of 20 years of the United Church of Christ in Chicago, Jeremiah Wright, and his many communist friends, finally achieved his dream of helping the communist regime of Cuba. Obama stated in his speech that he did not want “the sanctions against Cuba to push the island into an abysm.” Obama forgets that the one that pushed Cuba into the abysm was the communist dictatorship of Cuba and not the United States.

By recognizing Cuba and partially destroying the Cuban embargo, Barack Obama has thrown a lifesaver and given oxygen to the Cuban dictatorship that now will be able to continue to jail opponents, assassinate and shoot freedom-loving Cubans, and continue to oppress 12 million people.

Jeb Bush Gives Hillary Clinton an Award a Year and a Day After Benghazi

Why wasn’t Fox jumping all over this story, asking Jeb Bush why he gave his Democrat opponent, Hillary Clinton, an award a year and one day after the 9/11 attack on Benghazi, which killed our Ambassador and three American Patriots that stood down the siege for more than 12 hours? What about the rest of the State Dept. personnel who were virtually abandoned, subsequently rescued, sequestered and silenced? What about the filmmaker who was blamed for inciting this siege that happened on the anniversary of 9/11, when it was revealed that al Qaeda was involved? What about Hillary Clinton’s lies (Susan Rice’s, BHO’s) blaming a lone filmmaker for an assault on our sovereign consulate in Benghazi, which ended in the deaths of four Americans? Lastly, why in the world would Jeb Bush give a Democrat, Hillary Clinton, an award after she covered up
covered up this debacle and lied? In my opinion, Jeb Bush is not electable, because of his bad decisions and very poor judgement.

A conservative group’s new online ad portrays Jeb Bush as “unelectable” to the presidency because the Republican presented a public service award to the Democratic favorite, Hillary Rodham Clinton.

Clinton received the award, the video emphasizes, on Sept. 10, 2013 – one day short of the first anniversary of the terrorist attacks on U.S. facilities in Benghazi, Libya, that left four Americans dead and stained her legacy as secretary of state.

The group ForAmerica released the one-minute video this morning. ForAmerica is one of several Virginia-based educational nonprofits run by L. Brent Bozell III, perhaps best known for heading the Media Research Center.

“It’s bad enough that Hillary Clinton will likely use footage from this event against any Republican nominee,” Bozell said in a release sent to The Daily Signal, “but if Jeb Bush is her opponent she will make him look ridiculous.”

The Daily Signal has sought comment from a Bush spokeswoman, but she has not responded.

The video includes short clips of Bush and Clinton speaking separately at the 2013 event at the National Constitution Center, where the former secretary of state received the museum’s Liberty Medal.

“Jeb has absolutely no credibility to criticize [Hillary Clinton] because he has already anointed her as a great public servant.”-@BrentBozell

However, neither the video nor the group’s release notes that Bush was chairman of the National Constitution Center at the time, making the former Florida governor the natural presenter of its annual award. According to the institution’s website, he remains chairman — a largely honorary role previously held by his father, former President George H.W. Bush, and by former President Bill Clinton.

Congress established the museum and education center to promote understanding of the Constitution in a nonpartisan manner. President Ronald Reagan signed the 1988 bill laying out the details.

Bozell, author of “Whitewash,” a 2007 book that was highly critical of Clinton, also said of the video linking Bush and Clinton:

Anytime Jeb calls Hillary ‘Obama 2.0,’ any criticism he makes of her awful record as secretary of state, any time he shows how much of an extremist she is on the issues, will be completely dismissed when she reminds everyone that he gave her an award for public service. As it stands, Jeb has absolutely no credibility to criticize her because he has already anointed her as a great public servant; and he inexplicably did so almost a year to the day of the Benghazi massacre.

In a press release about the Liberty Medal, the Philadelphia-based museum said Clinton would receive the 2013 honor “in recognition of her lifelong career in public service and her ongoing advocacy efforts on behalf of women and girls around the globe.” It noted that Bush, “chair of the National Constitution Center, will award the prestigious medal to Secretary Clinton” as part of the televised 25th annual ceremony.

Previous winners include boxing legend Muhammad Ali, former Defense Secretary Robert Gates, former British Prime Minister Tony Blair, and, in 2006, co-awardees George H.W. Bush and Bill Clinton.

Bozell’s group timed release of the video to follow Bush’s major address on foreign policy yesterday, in which the Republican laid far-flung failures at the doors of both President Obama and Clinton, secretary of state during his entire first term.

In the speech in Chicago, Bush also sought for the second time in two weeks to set himself apart from his father and older brother, the last two Republican presidents, declaring, “I am my own man.”

U.S. Ambassador Chris Stevens and three other Americans were killed in the Benghazi attacks. A select committee of the House of Representatives is the latest congressional body to investigate the actions of Obama, Clinton and other civilian and military officials before, during and after the attacks.

Neither Bush nor Clinton is an announced candidate for president, but both are busy staffing up and raising money.

ForAmerica counts tens of thousands of supporters in Iowa, New Hampshire, South Carolina, Florida and the five other states that will hold the first round of primaries and caucuses of the 2016 presidential race.

Obama- Tougher on Congress Than on Iran’s Khamenei

by VICTOR DAVIS HANSON August 11, 2015 4:00 AM @VDHANSON

The speech was mean-spirited and dishonest ─ and may have been counterproductive. President Obama’s speech last week advocating congressional approval of the Iran deal was mostly made-up history mixed with invective. Indeed, he talked far more roughly about his congressional partners than he did about our Iranian enemies, who have worked so hard to kill Americans over the last 35 years. Obama assured us that in the past a “nonproliferation treaty . . . prohibited nations from acquiring nuclear weapons.” One wonders, then, how India, China, North Korea, and Pakistan ever obtained them, given they were all forbidden to do so under “new agreements” forged by Democratic and Republican presidents. Is there much logic in the assertion that the intelligence was flawed when we went to war with what proved to be a non-nuclear Iraq, but that we can trust the same intelligence agencies to apprise us precisely of the nuclear status of Iran? “After two years of negotiations,” Obama went on, “we have achieved a detailed arrangement that permanently prohibits Iran from obtaining a nuclear weapon. It cuts off all of Iran’s pathways to a bomb.” The deal does no such thing. Iran can still possess some enriched uranium. It can still operate centrifuges. It is not subject to anytime, anywhere inspections. And it will be almost impossible to restore international sanctions should Iran be caught cheating. As in the case of Obamacare, most of Obama’s pre-negotiation assurances are now either forgotten or ignored. Obama, as is his wont, derides any who disagree with him: “Between now and the congressional vote in September, you are going to hear a lot of arguments against this deal, backed by tens of millions of dollars in advertising. And if the rhetoric in these ads and the accompanying commentary sounds familiar, it should, for many of the same people who argued for the war in Iraq are now making the case against the Iran nuclear deal.”

Fox News Lurches Left As Murdock’s Sons Take Control of Media Dynasty

By Jerry A. Kane — Bio and Archives August 11, 2015

Rupert Murdoch handed over 21st Century Fox, the conglomerate behind Fox News, to sons James and Lachlan July 1, 2015. James is now CEO and Lachlan executive co-chairman. Last year Murdoch elevated his sons to prominent positions, James to co-COO and Lachlan to non-executive co-chairman, but the turnover of the conglomerate came sooner than expected.

For 15 years, Roger Ailes has enjoyed near total autonomy as head of Fox News, but Ailes’ sovereign rule ended abruptly with the move. A 21st Century Fox spokesperson told The Hollywood Reporter from now on, “Roger will report to Lachlan and James.”

To say that Ailes and Murdoch’s son James have a strained relationship would be a bit of an understatement. James, whose wife once worked for the Clinton Foundation, is a rabid environmentalist who led the campaign to make News Corp a carbon-neutral company. Conversely, Ailes is a “fierce climate-change denier,” who allegedly has called James a “f@#$%!g dope” and “Fredo.”

Now that control of Fox News has been given to Murdoch’s sons Ailes’ fair and balanced reporting and conservative punditry will soon fall by the wayside.

Ailes was not notified of the management change in advance. Apparently, Murdoch has been convinced that Fox News will continue do well without Ailes at the helm. Last year Ailes took a leave of absence due to an illness, and the network’s ratings didn’t slide.

Franklin Graham Spoke Out on Donald Trump, With One Undeniable Fact Everyone Should See

For the Rev. Franklin Graham, there’s no separation of church and state when it comes to following and commenting on national politics that could well impact our country’s leadership for years to come. The head of the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association just posted a message about Donald Trump to his 2.2 million Facebook followers — a message that linked to an article about the new NBC News poll that shows Trump still leading the GOP field by a comfortable margin following the first presidential debate and the much-publicized feud with Fox News.

In that widely liked and broadly shared social media post, Rev. Graham said he’s not endorsing Trump or any other candidate–but he appreciates what the outspoken contender for the nomination is doing to the Republican Party.

In an interview with the website al.com the day after the first GOP primetime debate, Rev. Graham said that he’s met and spoken with Donald Trump and believes him to be a “very smart man”; but he doesn’t want to endorse anyone as primary season gets underway. Graham, though, doesn’t hesitate to blast both parties for their self-serving antics that have put America on a perilous path.

Hillary’s Own War on Women; Demands Equal Pay, but Doesn’t Put her Money Where Her Mouth Is

Hillary Clinton has long positioned herself as a champion of equal pay for women. Ironically, new reports show that the former Secretary of State is, herself, part of the problem.

During her time in the U.S. Senate, Clinton paid women in her office 72 cents for each dollar paid to men, according to a report by Washington Free Beacon.

Analyzing data obtained from official Senate expenditure reports, Free Beacon concluded that the median annual salary for female staffers was $15,708.38 less than the median salary for men, between 2002 to 2008.

That’s about a 28 percent gender wage gap.
