JIMMY CARTER, BARACK OBAMA AND THE CANCER ON THE BRAIN OF AMERICA’S BODY POLITIC

 

In two recent articles (here and here) I advanced the novel idea that the proximity of Barack Obama's unpopular, legacy-driven, Munich-like appeasement deal with nuclear Iran in mid-July to two news making events involving Jimmy Carter: 1. His declaring in late June that US power, influence and prestige in world were "irreversibly declining." And 2. the report in mid-August that his cancer was lethally spreading throughout his body. These were two unmistakably ominous signs that the Carterization of Barack Obama is now tragically complete; and that 2015 is his 1979 disaster. 

 But that wasn't the end of it. Last week (as if symbolically anticipating the terrible consequences of Obama's nuke deal and feckless foreign policy) even worse news came from the unfortunate Mr. Carter. For on Thursday, August 20th we learned from the 90 year old ex-president that his metastasizing cancer had invaded his brain. "Discovered were four small spots of melanoma about two millimeters in size" said Carter, who received the first of four chemo treatments that very day with a new drug that would temper its enervating side effects. 
 
 My prayers are with Carter who I sincerely and very much want to recover and live. Hopefully the chemo will work and the cancer going into remission Carter will live to see how wrong he is about our "irreversible decline" just as the Left was wrong about it in the late 70s before Reagan reversed it. If Carter survives I'm certain he will see that his pessimism was unwarranted and a projection of his mind. That it was his wish and preference for this country (as it is for Obama and the Left) based on the radical belief that America has been a bad actor on the world stage (almost the very worst of nations) doing humanity more harm than good. And that a greatly diminished and weaker America is better for us and everyone else (see). 
OBAMA'S 79TH MONTH 
 But that things are quickly going to hell and will get dramatically worse before they get better (under a new president) was I believe prophetically signified by the timing of Carter's tragic news. For precisely on August 20th when Carter made his brain cancer known the fully Carterized and feckless Barack Obama entered the 79th month of his dismal presidency. That's "79" as in 1979 (see).
OBAMA'S 79TH DAY
Indeed, it appears that Carter's brain cancer is emblematic of Obama's intransigent leftwing presidency: that it's a destructive cancer on the brain of the body politic that is worsening by the day as he stays his disastrous course to the end of his last term. Oddly, Obama's Carter-like fate in foreign affairs, especially with regard to implacably, anti-US Iran, started early in his administration precisely, in fact, on April 8, 2009. For on that ill-starred day (which I wrote about here) Obama made his first fatal mistake with Iran by reversing the sensible policy of his predecessor of refusing to talk to the mullahs unless they stopped enriching uranium.  It doesn't seem that mere chance was at work that day. For as a sign to Obama that he was making a costly Carter-like blunder with Iran April 8, 2009 was the 79th day of his presidency-again, that's "79" as in the inauspicious year (see). As Jimmy Carter in 1979 midwifed the Iranian Revolution when he made the fatal mistake of deserting the Shah for Khomeini now Obama has outdone Carter in becoming this evil regime's greatest useful idiot and enabler.

 Nor, for that matter, do I think it was happenstance that two days earlier on April 6th, when Obama was in Ankara, Turkey assuring Moslems in a speech that the US wasn't at war with them, that a Turkish Canadian stole a small single engine training plane from a Canadian flight school in Ontario and flew it across the US border. What is incredible and seems providential (as I wrote here) is that when two F-16s forced the stolen plane to land it did so unplanned in Carter County, Missouri. That's "Carter" as in Jimmy*.  And look what's happened since to US foreign policy and to the hapless Jimmy Carter who is now fighting for his life as the disease of Obama's malignant leadership spreads and makes the world a more chaotic, violent and dangerous place.

*BTW, the Turkish born pilot was born in the late 1970s when Carter was president.

CERTIFIABLY INSANE OBAMA CALLS OPPONENTS OF NUKE DEAL “CRAZIES,” THE ULTIMATE ARGUMENT AGAINST THE DEAL, AND “RULE, MOHAMMED!” BRITAIN’S FUTURE NATIONAL ANTHEM?

 
 
 
 LET ME UNDERSTAND THIS
 
Based on 36 years of experience (beginning with the Iran Hostage Crisis) any person who distrusts the lying, cheating, deceiving "Death to America" mullahs: those radical theocratic Shia murderers who loving religious martyrdom invented suicide bombing (which inspired the 9/11 hijackers),  who killed hundreds of American soldiers and civilians in two Beirut bombings, who killed over 500 US soldiers in Iraq with IEDs, who are funding, training and arming the Taliban (al-Qaida allies) to kill our troops in Afghanistan, who are keeping four innocent Americans prisoners after unfreezing $150 billion, who won't allow a US embassy in Tehran after letting the Brits open one, and who show no real seriousness in ending their nuclear ambitions (see below)-these reasonable, sensible, understandably distrustful Americans Obama calls "crazy"? That's only understandable if you're certifiably insane.
 

No

 
 

THE ULTIMATE, IRREFUTABLE ARGUMENT AGAINST IRAN NUKE DEAL 

If Islamic supremacist fascist Iran were serious about giving up its nuclear ambitions and weapons program , normalizing relations  with the US and West, and becoming a responsible, constructive, peace-loving member of the international community it would do the following:

 

1. Destroy all its centrifuges so it can't enrich uranium-the IAEA's original demand.


2. Destroy its plutonium reactor so it can't develop the crudest of nuclear weapons with a light water plant-one third the size of Hiroshima bomb.


3. Terminate its relationship with "Axis of Evil," science and technology partner, nuclear North Korea. This must be done to calm fears of Iran covertly outsourcing its nuclear weapons program to the Norks, which it can easily do.

 

Obama who is comfortable with Iran doing none of these things, and claiming that his Iranian deal partners are"moderates" calls opponents of this deal "crazy hardliners?"  As I recall weren't the same things said about the US opponents of the Ayatollah Khomeini who warned  President Carter not to abandon the  truly moderate, peace-loving, pro-US, Israel friendly Shah?

 

And meanwhile across the pond in the mother country (where 49% of its Moslem population supports hate preachers see) comes this bit of diplomatic insanity:

 

UK Foreign Secretary says: “Perfectly normal” Iran seeks to “turn a page” with West

 

 

THE ONLY PAGE THE MULLAHS ARE TURNING

is in the high and holy Koran seeking guidance from Almighty Allah on the next step they should take in His divine plan of victory over Israel, the West and the US.

 
 How long, I wonder, will it be before England goes Islam and their national anthem "Rule, Britania!" is replaced  by the following song:
 
 

RULE, MOHAMMED!

When Mohammed first, at heaven's command,
Arose from burning desert sands
This was a sign to every land
That Islam is their Fate.
And the holy jinn ecstatically 
Sang this triumphant strain:

Rule, Mohammed!
Mohammed is the way.
All Brits shall ever ever ever 
Be his slaves.

Britons not so blest as He
Must in their turn
Fall on their knees.
To Allah and his Prophet fall
While Islam triumphs eternally
The dread and envy of them all.

Rule, Mohammed!
Mohammed is the way.
All Brits shall ever ever ever
Be his slaves.

Still mightier shall Mohammed rise
More dreadful from each enemy blow
More deadly, deadly than before.
His sword shall tear apart the sky
And reign down hell upon his foes,
His victory assured. 

Rule, Mohammed!
Mohammed is the way.
All Brits shall ever ever ever
Be his slaves.  

Haughty infidels shall never tame,
And fail to bring the Prophet down,
And will but rouse God's wrathful flame
As they work their woe to His renown. 

Rule, Mohammed!
Mohammed is the way.
All Brits shall ever ever ever
Be his slaves.  

Our jihadis with perfect freedom found, 
Shall to God's happy realm repair. 
Blest with 72 pure virgins crowned, 
Now that Islam's conquered the world down here.

Rule, Mohammed!
Mohammed is the way.
All men shall ever ever ever
Be his slaves.

 AND LASTLY
 
 
 
 

INCREDIBLY COURAGEOUS ANTI-JIHADISTS

 

like Pam Geller and Robert Spencer have run afoul of Obama and his losing battle to replace the global war on Islamic terror (fighting a real, deadly, determined enemy who wants to kill and subjugate us) with a global war on fossil fuels based on the fiction of catastrophic, man-made global warming. For our insane president (and the left) the real, evil, politically correct enemy is "carbon pollution," not Islamic supremacism inspired by the anti-infidel hatred polluting the Koran.

FROM NUCLEAR FREEZE TO UNFREEZING IRANIAN TERROR FUNDS: OBAMA’S APPEASEMENT JOURNEY INTO FOREIGN POLICY HELL

 
 
To understand what underlies Barack Obama's worthless, ill-fated, unverifiable, Munich-like nuclear "limitation" deal with implacable, Islamist, anti-US Iran we have to go back to the 1980s and his days as a hysterical anti-American, Reagan-hating peace activist in the failed and wrong-headed Nuclear Freeze Movement (NFM). Wrongly blaming US foreign policy (the Truman Containment Doctrine) for the Cold War and escalating nuclear arms race Obama and the left believed that a unilateral halt by the US on nuclear weapons development and defensive missile systems deployed in Europe would start a healing  process of appeasing legitimate Soviet "containment" grievances, win their trust and end the dangerous thirty year conflict-that Reagan was mistakenly seen as aggravating. Joining forces with the Soviets Obama and the leftist Freezers demonized Reagan as a dangerous confrontational, anti-Soviet extremist (a right-wing "nuclear cowboy") blindly leading the world into a thermonuclear holocaust where millions would perish, and "the living [slowly dying of radiation poisoning] would envy the dead," as Jonathan Schell said. In short, Reagan, for Obama and the left, was the real enemy and menace to mankind, not the militant Soviet Union and its utopian vision of a one world socialist state triumphing at the end of history.
 
*Click here for Ted Kennedy's collusion with Moscow to defeat Reagan in the 1984 election.
 
  
The left saw Reagan's anti-Soviet "peace through strength" and "roll back" policies as leading to a world ending nuclear war when in fact he was ending the Cold War
 
But try as they may Obama and the useful idiots of the NFM couldn't stop the intrepid Reagan who knew the Soviet enemy and their economic weaknesses and wouldn't desist exploiting them. Indeed, despite a massive, unprecedented million man Freeze rally in New York in 1982, State referendums on a Freeze (passed by overwhelming majorities), a UN vote favoring a Freeze, and huge protests throughout Europe opposing the deployment of Pershing and Cruise missiles Ronald Reagan stayed his anticommunist "peace through strength" course until he brought the Soviets to their knees, ended the Cold War and transformed the world.
 
GORBACHEV LOSES HIS IDEOLOGICAL ILLUSIONS
 
 
Indeed, it was Mikhail Gorbachev who credited Reagan's walkout at the Reykjavík Summit in 1986 as the pivotal moment and turning point for ending the conflict (see). When Gorbachev came to power in 1985 as Russia's Secretary General he was a true believing atheistic Marxist-Leninist committed to the Soviet revolutionary agenda of defeating America and the capitalist West and achieving communist world domination as the final, comprehensive answer to all of humanity's social and economic problems. But Reagan's shocking walkout at Reykjavík over SDI (his idea for a land and space based missile defense system), and a booming US economy (while Russia's was stagnating) put Gorbachev through a profound moral and intellectual change-his Damascus moment. Seeing that Communism couldn't compete with Capitalism  Gorbachev said "I then realized that a new world was possible." By "new world" Gorbachev meant a new world order of peace without the East-West Conflict and Cold War.
 
Indeed, as the driving force of the Cold War was Marxism-Leninism (the governing socialist, anti-Capitalist philosophy or ideology of the Soviet Union) Reagan's Reykjavík walkout shattered what was left of Gorbachev's ideological illusions. He came to realize that after 70 years of failure at trying to create the ideal classless social and economic order Marxism-Leninism was a philosophical fraud, hoax and lie*-as bankrupt as the Soviet State with no answers to Russia's worsening domestic problems-and it lost its hold on him. Indeed, disappearing with the collapse of Marxism-Leninism in Gorbachev's mind was the reason to continue the ideological, military and geopolitical struggle with America and the West making "a new world [of peace] possible."
 
 
THE LEFT'S HISTORICAL REVISIONISM OF THE 1980S
 
 
 
But that's not how Obama and most of the left see that period. Revising the history of the Reagan era they credit the NFM and anti-Cold War/peace movement with playing the crucial role not only in averting a global nuclear holocaust but with ending the Cold War (see). What is funny here is that  the NFM would not have existed without Ronald Reagan as it was principally an anti-Reagan movement aimed at destroying Reagan "the most dangerous man on earth."The freaked out Freezers believed It was Reagan's implacable anticommunism that was driving the world to Armageddon and he had to be stopped; and that the huge domestic and international peace movement against his policies (which included his daughter Patti Davis) softened Reagan and made him more amenable to appeasing Soviet grievances. Indeed, as proof that the anti-Cold War (blame America first) crowd prevailed over Reagan and moderated him leftists cite leading neo-cons like Norman Podhoretz and  Irving Krystal who turned against Reagan thinking he'd betrayed the anti-Soviet cause and grown soft.  
 
THATCHER TRUSTED GORBACHEV
 
 
But ignored by Obama and the left is the fact that it was Margret Thatcher (Reagan's ideological soul mate) who "softened" Ronald Reagan. Believing from her conversations with Gorbachev that he was more flexible and reform minded than his predecessors  the Iron Lady assured Reagan that "we could do business with him." But while Reagan appeared to "soften" he remained tough as nails and would not rescue the collapsing Soviet Union  by unilaterally freezing US military spending, or scuttling plans for SDI. For Reagan it was "peace through strength" all the way until the Soviet Union, under George H. W. Bush (who continued Reagan's tough policies) completely collapsed.
 
BARACK OBAMA MENTALLY STUCK IN THE  1980S
 
 As a Nuclear Freeze activist in the 80s Obama likened Reagan's foreign policy  to Nazism (see).
 
So Barack Obama foolishly  believing the lie of  leftist revisionist history that US foreign policy was the primary cause of the Cold War and dangerous nuclear arms race, and that the anti-Cold War/Nuclear Freeze movement prevailed over and moderated the hardline Reagan and ended the Cold War, he comes into office hell-bent and confident on appeasing his way to resetting US relations with Islam, Russia and Iran all of whom, one way or another, had been wronged by America. Needless to say Obama has predictably failed at appeasing all three.
 
OBAMA'S MOSLEM OUTREACH CATASTROPHE
 
 
If Obama is a cryptic Moslem, as some believe, he is a very ignorant Moslem 
 
Indeed, six years after delivering his fawning, historic "New Beginning," Moslem out reach speech from Cairo-where he vowed to defend Islam against bigotry and fight Islamic extremism-the Middle East is in worsening, deteriorating sectarian and ethnic turmoil with Islamic extremism surging like never before. Indeed, as Obama's inaction in Syria and premature withdrawal from Iraq created a power vaccum filled by ISIS  the vast majority of Moslems (80% according to Al Jazeera seedisagreeing with Obama see the violent, cruel, mass murdering Islamic State as truly, traditionally and authentically Islamic-i.e. practicing the "religion of peace" like Islam's prophet or war did ages ago. Nothing better illustrates than this mind-blowing survey the great  mental and moral divide between Obama and most Moslems, and how ignorant he is of Islam despite his Moslem family roots and doing Ramadan dinners at the White House.
 
OBAMA'S RUSSIAN RESET CATASTROPHE
 
 
After ignoring Putin's invasion of Georgia, and his undisguised neo-imperialism to restore as much of the Soviet Empire as possible, Obama bent over backwards to appease Putin and predictably got no further than Chamberlain with Hitler. On September  17, 2010 (the 70th anniversary of Stalin's invasion of Poland), Obama, out of butt kissing deference to Putin's wishes, killed the deployment of the missile defense shield for Poland and Eastern Europe pissing off our allies (see). Then six months later in Prague Obama signed the New Strategic Arms Reduction Treaty (New START) with the cheating, untrustworthy Russians. This deal cuts lopsidedly our nuclear arsenal by a third while the Russians cut nothing and are allowed to modernize theirs. Moreover, while we're bound by this treaty to limit the number of our nukes adversaries like China and North Korea have no such limits. The treaty also has a poor verification regime and leaves Russia with a ten to advantage in tactical nuclear weapons (see).
 
obama twerking putin
 
And after all the bowing and scraping and capitulation to Putin what does Obama have to show for it? High tech traitor Edward Snowden given asylum in Russia; the invasion of Ukraine and annexation of Crimea; and Putin plotting and scheming to undermine NATO's credibility (see).
 
OBAMA'S UNFOLDING CATASTROPHE WITH IRAN 
 
 
After catastrophically failing to appease Putin and learning nothing from the experience Obama is hard at work trying to appease Putin's  implacable, evil, totalitarian ally, anti-US  Iran out of developing the ultimate weapons of terror and death and stop their jihad against us. How? By unfreezing billions in funds, lifting more sanctions, allowing the enrichment of uranium, letting them keep their plutonium reactor and self-inspect their own nuke sites for reported violations; and last but not least, tolerating their relationship with "Axis of Evil," science and technology partner, nuclear North Korea who is able to covertly enrich uranium for them, or sell them nukes from their stockpile. And what does Obama have to show for all he's done for Iran? They won't even let us open an embassy in Tehran after the Brits opened theirs several days ago.  And to top off this unprecedented diplomatic insanity Obama  after repeatedly being kicked in the groin by Putin publicly thanked him for making this dangerous, doomed to fail, God awful nuke deal possible. In other words,  for years Obama patiently endured Putin's abuse just to get this worthless deal with the mullahs and endless ridicule and abuse from them.
 
From the hysterical nuclear doomsday Freeze movement to the unfreezing of billions in Iranian terrorist funds Barack Obama has journeyed from insanity to insanity on his radically delusional leftist descent into historical infamy and total appeasement hell. And sad to say for our nation he hasn't reached bottom yet.

WARMUNISTS CHEER NEWS ABOUT RECORD BREAKING JULY HEAT WHEN IT’S DAMNING TO THEIR CAUSE

 

 
 

It's Official, July Was Earth's Hottest Month On Record

Scientists predict 2015 will be the hottest year ever. 

 

 

Yesterday the AP reported the earth shattering news (anxiously awaited by cheering warmunists) from NASA and the Japan Meteorological Agency (making climate change deniers like myself seem like fools) that the month of July-when Barack Obama signed a phony, historic nuke deal with Islamofascist Iran-was the hottest month on record. 

"The average [global] temperature in July," says the report, "was 61.86 degrees Fahrenheit [ouch! that’s really hot], beating the previous global record set in 1998 and again in 2010 [I didn’t see this listed in Guinness] by about one-seventh of a degree [I feel feverish just reading about it].” “That's a large margin for weather records" we are assured. But it gets worse. "The first seven months of 2015 were the hottest January-to-July span on record [despite record US snow, ice and cold causing first quarter negative GDP growth]).” Alarmingly, National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration climate scientist Jake Crouch told The Associated Press “it's quite likely that 2015 will end up the hottest year on record, beating last year." 

Now if that doesn't send shock waves up your spine that we're turning Earth into a fire-ball that will in time consume all life in a climate change conflagration it can only mean one thing:  you're an inhumane, right-wing, Fox brainwashed, science-hating, Republican dolt who wants to see California wither and die from endless drought, and humanity vanish in a 100 years-and not just from melting glaciers causing water world. If catastrophic climate change doesn’t kill our rogue species  “biological extinction”-the mass extinction of animals-will; or a thousand other human caused crises (see).

 But speaking of peace-loving, nonnuclear, normalizing Iran climate change apparently has hit that country very hard. For the sizzling month of July (when Obama gave the mullahs $150 billion to supercharge their red-hot blazing terrorist murder machine) the heat index hit an astonishing, unbearable, sweltering 163F (temp =115F, dew pt=90F see). In fact, according to Iran’s meteorological service (as reported last February), “with the exception of just three years, Iran has experienced 23 consecutive years of reduced rainfall and increases in temperature.” This has put a severe strain on Iran's water supply “causing a crisis in 14 cities including Tehran.” "If this crisis continues," says former Agriculture Minister Issa Kalantari, "Iran could become an uninhabitable ghost town in 30 years (see)." Actually, I know a lot of people inside and outside of Israel (myself included) who are praying that this happens. Catastrophic, man-made global warming can't be all that bad if it wipes out radical, terrorist, genocidal Iran-the worst of all bad actors in the Middle East, and one of the evilest regimes on earth.

Kidding aside. This report that has warminusts telling us deniers “we told you so” is only a half truth. These record-breaking temperatures are indeed occurring, but only on the ground not up in the air. They are SURFACE not ATMOSPHERIC temperatures. This isn’t a distinction without a difference as warmunists would have us believe. The difference, in fact, is huge.

 Contrary to global warming theory the billions upon billions of tons of heat trapping CO2 and other green house gases that “heedless,”  “polluting,” fossil fuel burning humanity is emitting into the air isn’t catastrophically heating the lower atmosphere. Defying UN computer models and apocalyptic warmunist predictions global atmospheric temperatures have been flat as a pancake for 19 plus years (see). Instead of increasing by the predicted three or four degrees fahrenheit or more, atmospheric temperatures are where they were in 1996. What this means is that this “record breaking” rise in surface temperatures is unrelated to anything we humans are putting into the atmosphere. There’s absolutely no causal link between the two. The heat trapping capabilities of CO2, methane and other GHGs gases have been greatly, greatly unscientifically  politically exaggerated by leftwing climate zealots who see themselves on a mission to save the world by cutting emissions no matter the cost to the global economy and people's lives. What’s causing surface temperatures to rise is most likely the Sun ignored by warmunists because its colossal heat and energy output can’t be controlled.

For those unfamiliar with warmunist theory, lies and apocalyptic delusions about CO2 emissions imperiling mankind’s future the following will, I'm sure, prove helpful:

CO2 ON MARS AND EARTH

The atmosphere of Mars which has surface temperatures ranging from -225 degrees F to 95 degrees F is composed of 96% carbon dioxide, 2% nitrogen and 0.146% oxygen. The atmosphere of Earth which has surface temperatures ranging from -138 degrees F to 135 degrees F is composed of 78% nitrogen, 21% oxygen and a mere 0.039% carbon dioxide. Now if carbon dioxide traps so much reflected heat from the Sun then why is Mars with an atmosphere of 96% CO2 far colder than Earth which has  less than 1% CO2? After all, carbon dioxide is carbon dioxide; its capabilities on Mars, Venus, Jupiter and Saturn are no different from that on Earth. The answer of course is that factors other than CO2 are heavily controlling the climate and impacting the surface temperature of both planets. Indeed, though despite the wealth of scientific evidence  that CO2 plays a very tiny, insignificant role in climate change, it is hugely for political reasons grossly exaggerated by warminists. Now what those other factors are that warmuists completely ignore (and will curse you for) are Earth’s closer proximity to the Sun by 49 million miles; and SURFACE PRESSURE which you can read about HERE.

In sum, what warminists are praising as good news for their declining movement of lies and falsehoods is actually bad news for them. Without a catastrophic heating of the atmosphere (which isn't happening) rising surface temperatures are further proof that they are wrong; and puts another nail in the coffin of their absurd, hysterical, "world saving" cause.

IS ISLAM ATHEISM DISGUISED AS JEWISH MONOTHEISM?

 

"THERE IS NO RELIGION DARKER

No religion bleaker

No religion furthest removed from the Light and Grace of God than Islam."

Dostoevsky

Could it be that Islam is ATHEISM disguised as Jewish Monotheism, and the perfection of Christianity? That it's a godless quest for absolute political power and mastery over men under the guise of World Peace, Providence and the election of Almighty God? Could it be that Islam's near universal hatred and war against the Jewish State are Moslems struggling against the truth about their faith? The truth that Israel's ongoing existence in defiance of Islam-and against all odds-is a refutation of Islamic truth? And a revelation from the One True God that Islam's Prophet was a fake? That Mohammed's God-the deity he worshipped-was political power and the omnipotent, tyrannical Islamic state? Dostoesvky said: "If God is dead then everything is permitted." As Islam is lawlessness and immorality in quest of absolute power, as Moslems are permitted every kind of evil, crime, atrocity and sin to conquer the world and subjugate men, then God must be absent from Islam, and Moslems dead to Him.

IRAN AND JIMMY CARTER’S CANCER, HILLARY AT MCGOVERN’S FUNERAL, OBAMA’S LOSING WAR ON OIL AND OTHER THOUGHTS AND COMMENTS

 
Last week I wrote  here  that because of Barack Obama's doomed to fail "comprehensive" appeasement agreement with implacable, anti-US, jihadist Iran on nuclear weapons that 2015 is his 1979 disaster. Indeed, this was the year  that Jimmy Carter (caving to the rabid, anti-American, post-Vietnam left) deserted the moderate, peace-loving, progressive, pro-American Shah for the savage, toxic,  fanatical, Shiite radical Ayatollah Khomenie-thinking he was a democratic revolutionary who'd bring freedom and peace to Iran. Well,  on August 3rd (less than 24 hours from Obama's 54th birthday, and three weeks from his "Munich Moment" of  weakness, naïvety and folly in Vienna, 90 year old Jimmy Carter underwent surgery for liver cancer. After removing a small cancerous mass from his liver Carter's doctors gave him an excellent prognosis for a full, cancer free recovery. But ten days later things took a turn for the worse: Carter sadly learned that his doctors were mistaken, that his cancer wasn't defeated, that defying the surgery and treatment it metastasized and spread to other parts of his body endangering his life.
 
Indeed, that Carter should be suffering from a malignant life threatening cancer not long after warning that the US was in steep, precipitous geopolitical decline (as it was when he was president, see) , and when Obama three weeks later (turning 2015 into 1979) finalized his  insane,  $150 billion giveaway deal with theofascist, jihadist Khomenist Iran (which Jimmy Carter in his  stupidity, naïvety and weakness unleashed upon the world) seems ominous in the extreme of terrible things to come.
 
 Indeed, the failure of Carter's surgeons to cure him of his illness  after he was judged cancer free is emblematic that Obama's God awful deal with Iran will not keep them nuke free as many foolishly believe ; and that the disease of  their evil power and influence in the region will metastasize and grow like Carter's deadly affliction. Indeed, the lefts's self-deceptive optimism (inspired by Obama's lie)
that the mullahs see the light, that the punishing sanctions changed their hearts and minds, and that they're reforming and moderating themselves and giving up jihad (seewill soon be totally shattered like Carter's optimistic prognosis.
 Jimmy Carter's growing cancer is a sign  that the only cure for the cancer of implacable, expansionary, malignant Khomenism is the end of the Khomenist regime.

GEORGE BUSH WAS LOSING THE IRAQ WAR

before he won it with the surge. And Barack Obama (who opposed the surge saying it wouldn't work) was keeping Bush's hard-won peace before he threw it away not using the tremendous leverage he had over Iraqi politicians ($60 billion in Iraq Reconstruction funds) and lost it thinking of election day. Now, thinking of his legacy, he's funding the terror masters of Iran with billions so they can complete their virtual annexation of Iraq and replace the Pax Americana with the Pax Iranica in the region. Beyond pathetic.

HOW OBAMA DESTROYED IRAQ IN ONE EASY LESSON

 

 
 
 

OBAMA TOO WAS WRONG ON IRAQ

He opposed the surge in 2007 saying that it absolutely wouldn't work. And again he was wrong about post-occupation Iraq predicting that the stability and peace created by the surge would endure. And then along came murdering ISIS filling the vacuüm left by Obama's unnecessary, premature troop withdrawal. Then Obama goofed again saying that ISIS was JV (like his administration) and not much of a threat to the US.  And we can go on and on about Obama's lack of judgment on Libya, Yemen, the fall of Assad in Syria, al Qaida being decimated, a video causing Benghazi, etc etc.

And now he wants us to believe that he's stopped the mullahs from getting the bomb when they can continue secretly enriching uranium and building nukes with their science, technology and military partners in Axis of Evil nuclear North Korea. Add to this Obama's domestic failures on the economy, job creation, healthcare reform, border security, racial harmony, etc and what we have is the longest running Amateur Hour Show since Ted Mack. The only difference is that Mack's show was entertaining, Obama's is depressingly sad,

EARTH TO JOHN KERRY:

The Cuban people aren't free to "shape their own future." And now you and Obama (as you're doing in Iran) have made the democratic liberation of the Cuban people to "shape their future" even more unlikely for a long, long time to come. Great work. Nevertheless, you'll probably get the Nobel Peace Prize for  the nuclear deal with Iran (which has nothing to do with peace).

 OBAMA'S LOSING WAR ON OIL 
 
The collapsing of oil prices-aggravated by the Iran nuke deal-is dealing a huge blow to the "Green Revolution" and its more costly green energy technologies. And the Saudis and their gulf oil partners are hell-bent on making sure that green energy isn't competitive with petro for a long time to come. Get used to it lefties,  as far as the eye can see the future will belong to dirty energy  "polluting" the air with all that evil, oxygen necessary carbon.
 
 
NOW THAT ISIS HAS BEHEADED SCORES OF INNOCENT PEOPLE,
 
burnt them alive in cages, shot them dead through their heads, dynamited them to pieces and tortured them to death what gruesome, sadistic murders are left for them to do? Perhaps the prophet Mohammed provides the shocking clue when for his pleasure he ordered the bodies of sinning men and women torn mercilessly in two. He did this by tying the victims' arms and legs to two whipped camels which pulled their bodies asunder from opposite directions....as Mohammad and his men cheered and praised Allah.Is this what these Moslem monsters will be showing us soon? 
 
 
REALLY? IF THE GREAT DEPRESSION DIDN'T KILL THE GOP,

 

and it had five presidents since, and dominated Congress and state legislatures for most of the 21st century's first 15 years, then it still has a long life ahead of it-guaranteed by $18 trillion in debt and the desperate need for Austerity Economics which is a national necessity to save us from bankruptcy and depression.

OBAMA’S FICTIONAL BATTLE OF HARDLINERS AND MODERATES INSIDE RADICAL ISLAMIST IRAN

 

 

Obama defends comparing Republicans to Iranianhardliners | MSNBC

President Obama stood by his claim that Republicans opposed to the Iran nuclear deal are making common cause with the most anti-western powers in Iranian society,in an interview with CNN’s Fareed Zakaria on Sunday.

“What I said is absolutely true factually,” Obama said. “The truth of the matter is, inside of Iran, the people most opposed to the deal are the Revolutionary Guard, the Quds Force, hardliners who are implacably opposed to any cooperation with the international community. And there’s a reason for that, because they recognize that if, in fact, this deal gets done, that rather than them being in the driver’s seat with respect to the Iranian economy, they are in a weaker position.”

COMMENT

Iran's Revolutionary Guard  leader General Jafari putting on a phony show of opposing nuke deal.

Now either Barack Obama is the dumbest, most clueless, most ill-informed man ever to sit in the Oval Office, or he's exploiting the public's ignorance of Iran's radical, totalitarian, intolerant, Islamofascist regime to demonize Republican and Democrat opponents to his very dangerous, doomed to fail, nuclear limitation (giveaway) deal with Iran.

Jafari with his boss who can crush him like a fly for insubordination.
 
Now while it is true that regime sycophant Major General Mohammed Jafari, head of Iran's Revolutionary Guard (IRG), came out publicly against the nuke deal (see and see) it was because his boss, the all-powerful, infallible, God-directed Supreme Leader Ayatollah Khamenei (who has the power of life and death over all matters of state and diplomacy, and controls Iran's military) allowed him to do so. If not, if Jafari defying Khamenei went against him on his own, it would be viewed as either an act of insubordination that could get him fired, or an act of treason that could get him killed. Indeed, in radical Islamist Iran there is zero tolerance for anyone who challenges the regime, and whatever is believed by Khamenei to advance Iran's revolutionary goals in the region and world.
 
Indeed, look at what happened in June 2009: when Iranians massively in the millions (the real moderates) rose up against the "tyrant" Khamenei  (hard-liner-in-chief) demanding true democracy while protesting the rigged election that reelected the hugely unpopular Ahmadenijad (all presidential elections are fixed to favor Khamenei's choice) they were violently suppressed by  Khamenei's brutal militias  And such would be Jafari's fate if he dared, without approval, to publicly oppose any of Khamenei's diplomatic and policy decisions. Now either Obama is ignorant of this-doesn't understand Iran's top down, theocratic, command and control structure with Khamenei at its head controlling everything-or he's lying through his teeth, which is most likely the case.
 
Indeed, this was the same mendacious president who last year promoted the outrageous lie that the mullahs didn't have a nuclear weapons program; that we should trust them when they deny wanting to build the bomb; and that Republicans, Israel, Saudi Arabia, Egypt and everyone else sounding the alarm about Iran's secret illegal program are badly mistaken. And proof that their nuclear program is limited to peaceful energy purposes Obama cited an alleged fatwa (religious decree) issued by Khamenei stating that nuclear weapons were against Islamic law (see); that Allah is opposed to them, and to Iran or any Moslem country becoming a nuclear armed state. But, as it turned out, this fatwa was a complete fabrication and regime hoax that Obama was in on. For among the many fatwas Khamenei issued over the years not one was an anti-nuke decree. Indeed, if such a fatwa existed Obama would have made a copy available to the press, or had it posted on the White House web site for all to see. But he did neither because he was lying and in effect became an apologist and propaganda arm for this evil regime. Is it any wonder that the vast majority of US soldiers and veterans despise Obama, and are ashamed that he's their Commander-in-Chief? No president since Jimmy Carter has been more uselessly and worthlessly friendly to our enemies and (to our shame) has nothing to show for it but their distain.
 
Moreover, in the interview with Zakaria Obama gives the most ridiculous and easily refutable reason why the IRG and Quds Force are opposed to the deal:
 

"It takes them out of the driver's seat with respect to the economy......putting them in a weaker position" explained Obama

 O really? Iran's terrorist allies: Hezbollah, Hamas, the Houties, Syria's mass murderer Assad, and the Taliban in Afghanistan who are killing our troops, stand to prosper from this deal with billions divided between them to advance Iran's regional plans; but the highly valued and elite IRG (the Guardians of the Islamic Revolution) and Qud's Force (used in foreign operations) will lose stature, be diminished and made poorer? Why would Khamenei allow that when they serve the regime so well? Do you see how idiotic Obama's argument is? In reality Iran's economy (like most everything in the country) is controlled by Khamenei. And the nuke deal with the $150 billion in unfrozen funds Khamenei is happily getting is a bonanza for the IRG and Quds. It means better equipment, more sophisticated arms and possibly higher pay for their troops; and, most importantly, more money for their subversive, revolutionary and terrorist activities throughout the Middle East and beyond. In short, the already wealthy IRG and Quds will be prospering even more from this deal along with the regime.

Indeed, this means that General Jafari's public opposition to the deal is mostly a charade; a dog and pony show designed to make Iran's radical Islamic leader (Khamenei) look moderate, reasonable and statesmanlike-and that he's steering Iran in a new direction: toward the normalizing of relations with the world.

Indeed. if Jafari believed that this nuke deal would seriously compromise the revolution and Iran's security as he seems to say why then doesn't he lead a coup against Khameini whose decision is endangering the state and is unfit to command? The IRG with its 125,000 troops, and Quds with its thousands, could easily take Khamenei down and replace him with an Islamically correct "hard-liner." But that isn't happening nor will it as the IRG and Quds cannot but love this deal and want it as badly as Khamenei. Moreover, this staged, bogus opposition (with small peaceful protests) is obviously a bone that the regime threw to Obama (who they despise like a dog) to help him counter domestic critics who say he's signed a bad Munich-like deal with an unreliable, devious, Nazi-like regime.

Anyway you look at it Obama's battle of hardliners and moderates inside Iran over the nuclear limitation deal has no reality outside his scheming, lying, leftist, appeasement driven, legacy desperate brain; and will likely have horrific consequences that will haunt him to his grave.

Sanctions against Iran crumble as America wrangles over the nuclear deal | World news | The Guardian

EU government ministers and business leaders are racing to begin new era of cooperation with Tehran – regardless of what US and Israeli sceptics say.

COMMENT
 
After the great Munich deception of 1938 heads of state and business leaders worldwide raced to do business with Nazi Germany, regardless of what Winston Churchill and the sceptics said.  Even Franklin Roosevelt, opposing Churchill (who he admired) and the hawks came out in praise of the agreement. But after Hitler's invasion of Poland FDR said "Normal practices of diplomacy are of no possible use in dealing with international outlaws (what we call today "rogue states"). And undoubtedly he'd have applied this to Iran if he were alive today.

CHUCK SCHUMER DESERTS OBAMA ON THE 70TH ANNIVERSARY OF HIROSHIMA

 

Last Thursday afternoon August 6th Barack Obama received an unwanted phone call from New York Senator Chuck Schumer. Breaking the bad news the third most powerful Democrat in Congress and successor to Harry Reid told Obama that on Friday he'd be announcing his opposition to his controversial nuke deal with Iran. Coming just eight months after Schumer joined Republicans in their opposition to Obamacare  (saying it was a "bad mistake") an angry Obama couldn't restrain himself and wait another day for Schumer's announcement. As Thursday was the day of the first Republican presidential debates Obama chose to leak the news of Schumer's defection then and there. Some say Obama timed the leak to coincide with the debates to minimize its impact. But a more likely explanation is that the timing was symbolic of Obama's great displeasure with the Senator; and that his second defection on a key signature, legacy issue was an act of unforgivable treason that (in Obama's eyes) turned him into a virtual Republican unworthy to replace Harry Reid. In short, leaking news of Schumer's defection on a big Republican day was Obama's lame way of humiliating him.
 But what Obama in his fury missed as if it were a sign to him that Schumer was right on the issue and he dead wrong was that Thursday August 6th was the 70th anniversary of Hiroshima-the first of two devastating atomic bomb attacks that would bring Imperial Japan to its knees and end the worst war in human history. Perhaps an ominous sign of nuclear devastation to come; and just how badly and dangerously the incompetent blundering appeaser failed in his deal with the chess playing, nuclear terror masters of Iran. (I'll have more to say on this below.) 

Now Schumer, a pro-Israel, America first, New York Jew concerned for America's and Israel's security against an Islamonazi enemy hell-bent on the destruction of both our countries courageously refused on principle (and possibly great political cost) to be party to a deal that doesn't stop Iran from getting the bomb and rewards its evil jihadist behavior with $150 billion in unfrozen assets and the lifting of sanctions.
Indeed, who in their right mind (Jew or not) would support this terrible deal? A deal far removed from the outcome Obama originally promised this country, Israel and world? An outcome so good and desirable that Henry Kissinger and George Schultz approved it (see). What outcome did Obama promise? That he'd negotiate nothing less than an end to Iran's nuclear aspirations and get the Ayatollah Khamenei (Iran's supreme, all-powerful religious and political leader) to completely and utterly dismantle Iran's nuclear bomb making capabilities and infrastructure-thus limiting its nuclear program to peaceful scientific and energy purposes. Indeed, a reformed moderate normalized Iran with a truly peaceful, non-military nuclear program means this: 
ZERO centrifuges. ZERO enriching of uranium. ZERO heavy (and light*)-water plutonium reactors. ZERO ICBM and IRBM missiles (used to carry nuclear warheads across great distances). Centrifuges, uranium enrichment and heavy water plutonium plants aren't needed for a peaceful scientific nuclear energy program; and nor are nuke carrying missiles. If Iran was serious about not building a bomb they'd buy nuclear fuel for their power plants on the market like other countries do.

*The nuke deal calls for Iran to convert its heavy water plutonium reactor into a light water reactor. But the later can produce a crude nuclear device with about 1/3rd the destructive capability of the Hiroshima bomb.

And just as crucial for ending Iran's nuclear ambitions (hardly discussed by anyone) is the termination of all scientific and technological coöperation with rogue, "Axis of Evil" partner nuclear North Korea-with whom Iran (for the right price) can secretly and with impunity enrich and weaponize all the uranium it desires, or buy nukes off the shelf from its growing illegal stockpile.  
Obama's deal does none of the above. Hardline Islamonazi Ali Khamenei (God's anointed infallible absolute leader of Iran) implacably bent on keeping Iran's $100 billion nuclear weapons infrastructure while getting sanctions lifted and $150 billion returned fought hard and resisted the weak, pathetic, appeasing Obama all the way down the line until he got what he wanted: a mere limiting or modifying of Iran's nuclear bomb making capabilities while extending not ending the breakout time for getting the bomb. And adding to the worthlessness of the deal (we get nothing they get everything) Iran is allowed to continue building intermediate and long range missiles (to hit Israel, America and whoever) while maintaining its dangerous nuclear relationship with North Korea.
From the very ill-starred beginning of Obama's presidency all the signs have been dreadfully bad. Obama (the greatest enabler of Iranian power since Jimmy Carter) elected president on the 29th anniversary of the 444 day Iran Hostage Crisis. Then 2444 days later (seeon the anniversary of the atrocious, mass murdering French Revolution, Obama finalizes a Munich-like appeasement deal with Iran at the very hotel in Vienna where Hitler in 1938 (the year of the Munich disaster) celebrated Germany's annexation and conquest of Austria. And now we have Democrat Chuck Schumer, the most prominent Jewish politician in America, courageously (putting principle above politics) joining Bibi Netanyahu and Republicans in opposing  Obama's nuke deal on (of all days) the 70th anniversary of Hiroshima.
Maybe it's coincidental; maybe providential. But what is certain is this:  what militant Japan was to the US and its allies in World War II militant jihadist Islamic Iran is to the US, Israel and the West in the Global War on Islamic Terror; and its ambition to become the nuclear hegemon  dominating the Middle East (as a stepping stone to world domination*) has been emboldened not diminished by this deal. 

*The overarching historic goal of Islam as laid out in the Koran.

Doubtless Khamenei and the jubilant mullahs are interpreting July 14th as an auspicious sign from On High that America (as Jimmy Carter recently said) is in a state of irreversible decline, and they are rising like Mohammed  and his armies at Medina. And that victory over America, Israel and their Sunni enemies shall in time be theirs. Is nuclear war then coming to the Middle East?  Is Khamemei's diplomatic victory getting to his head as did Hitler's victory at Munich? Will Israel and/or the US end up devastating Iran (after it miscalculates) like the US 70 years ago crushed fascist Japan? However this plays out Schumer summerizing his analysis is right: "No deal is better than this deal." For it greatly amplifies Iran's power to export terror and do evil, and that means a more deadly and dangerous world for everyone.

BERNIE SANDERS, THE CLINTONS AND OBAMA’S BOGUS 5.3% JOBLESS RATE

 

 

It went unreported by MSN (and was strangely ignored by FOX),  and no GOP candidates peeped a word about it at Thursday's debates, that on May 26th when straight shooting, social democrat, Clinton challenger Bernie Sanders kicked off his presidential campaign with a hard-hitting speech in Burlington, Vermont he said (11:39 minutes into his speech) that the American people were being deceived about the state of the US economy. Indeed, after bemoaning the disappearing middle class,  the dire drop in median income, the growing poverty and people working two or three jobs to make ends meet Sanders dropped a bomb and said about Obama's  unemployment rate:

" Don't believe what you read in the papers. Truth is the REAL unemployment rate in this country is close to 11 per cent!"

 Huh? That's more than double the official BLS rate of 5.3% that Obama is touting as evidence of his great history making recovery. That he, Barack Obama, with the largest government spending stimulus package of all time  not only saved the US economy from plunging into a second Great Depression (which Bush actually did with TARP), but that he has spent his way to a strong recovery and is putting America back to work which no government anywhere has ever done. "Democratic economic policies," said Obama, " has produced a record streak in private sector jobs growth of 12.8 million jobs over 64 straight months."

OBAMA THINKS HE'S MADE HISTORY

 It's just simply amazing. What neither Hoover nor FDR could do for ten years during the 1930s, nor the Japanese, Greeks, Spanish, Italians, Brits, Irish and Portuguese, he, Obama, has triumphantly achieved for 21st century America.  Both Hoover and FDR believing that government was the answer tried and miserably failed to tax and spend their way out of the Great Depression. And the Japanese with two lost decades of recession after recession and poor economic growth believe the same thing and is still spending beyond its means. But, as it turns out, they weren't wrong-at least not in theory. Government spending was and is and always will be the answer. But Hoover, FDR, the Greeks, Brits and Japanese failed because, unlike Obama who learned from the past, they spent way too little. They didn't go where Obama boldly went using an awesome, unprecedented $830 billion to dig the country out of its hole. That is the secret Obama wants us to believe.

 But here is Bernie Sanders breaking ranks with Obama, Democrats and Hillary (who vows to continue Obama's economic policies)claiming that after 64 months and trillions borrowed, printed and spent we have an actual jobless rate in the double digits, as if close to zero progress has been made in ending the Great Recession; as if Obama is FDR and Hoover all over again repeating the same mistakes;  as if the recovery is fake and we are being lied to again as with Obamacare, Dodd-Frank, al Qaida's decimation and record deportees.  What's going on here?

 Is Sanders who voted for Obama's stimulus lying about the 11% for political gain? Or is it evidence as some say that this senior citizen is senile and losing his grip? Or is it that he's being misled by bad advisors who got the numbers wrong? Neither lying nor senile nor misled Sanders is fearlessly looking at economic reality and boldly telling the truth about the real, sad state of joblessness in America that Obama lies about daily.

 BILL CLINTON'S NEW METRICS FOR CALCULATING UNEMPLOYMENT RATE

 "There are statistics and lying statistics." And Obama, arguably the most mendacious president in US history, is using decades old, politically driven, smoke and mirrors metrics (started by Bill Clinton) to calculate the jobless rate and make it look significantly better than it is-a practice that continued throughout the Bush years and is now being used by Obama to hide the failure of his stimulus to trigger the promised, robust, Reagan-like recovery. Truth is, Obama is  Hoover and FDR all over again; he chose a model (Keynesiansm) to fix our economy that's failed for everyone who's tried it; and his economy remains the worst since the Great Depression. But Sanders who's running for the presidency against Bill Clinton's wife to his credit will have none of this lie; and is willing to speak the truth whatever the political cost and blowback from Obama and fellow Dems.

 But what is this lie that was continued by Bush and now by Obama with glee? It is this: real, hurting unemployed Americans who can't find work in Obama's pathetic, weak, trickle growth economy and have given up looking  (and these number millions) are not counted as unemployed like they were until 22 years ago; called "discouraged workers" they are excluded from the official jobless rate of 5.3% as if like unicorns they don't exist.  However, tell any one of these "discouraged workers" that they're not officially considered unemployed and they'll think that you're nuts because it's so nonsensical.

 But how did this fraudulent method, or statistical trickery, of excluding millions of jobless workers from the unemployment rolls come about? From what my researches have uncovered  it all started with Bill Clinton's large, ill-considered tax hike of 1993. Clinton inherited from George H. W. Bush an economic recovery of 22 straight months of economic growth driven by the Hi-Tech Revolution that was steaming ahead, growing the economy and creating lots of jobs; wanting to bring down the deficit and balance the budget (one of the good things about his presidency) Clinton signed into law two large tax hikes on the rich and upper middle class increasing the former 31%-39.6%, and the latter for from 31% to 36%.

 Now experience teaches and common sense knows that tax hikes (any hikes large or small) have a contractionary effect on economic growth; and the Clinton tax was no exception. Because of his taxes the booming hi-tech driven recovery slowed down preventing the creation of hundreds and thousands of additional jobs (see); and in 1994  Clinton  lost the House to Newt Gingrich and the GOP as a result.  Alarmed that the unintended consequences of the new taxes could cost him reelection Clinton apologized for it regretting that it was too big (see). And then Slick Willy did something underhanded to make up for the slowdown: someone in the Bureau of Labor Statistics came up with an ingenious idea of making the unemployment rate look significantly better than it was. This was achieved by removing the above mentioned "discouraged workers" from the official unemployment rate  (now called U-3) and moving them to a separate category (U-5) as if it were a kind of shell game. 

 Now in 1994 when the transition to the new Clinton metrics was made joblessness was cut roughly in half from 1.1 million at the end of 1993  to 500,000 over the course of the next year as 600,000 "discourage workers" magically disappeared from the unemployment rolls. This dropped the jobless rate more than a full point for Clinton from 6.8% to 5.5% thus burying the job stunting slowdown from his wrong headed tax hikes (see).

 SANDERS VS. HILLARY

  It's going to be fascinating watching Sanders and Clinton at the Democrat primary debates slugging it out over the economy. For the Clintons carrying water for Obama have praised his economic leadership. Believing that the stimulus was a success Bill Clinton said at the 2012 DNC:

"Obama changed the course of a weak economy which suffered the biggest collapse since the Great Depression [due in main to Clinton's housing policies]; he stopped the slide into depression [it was Bush's TARP that did that] and put us on the long road to recovery [this began before Obama took office]......He put a floor under the [Clinton caused] crash. He began the long, hard road to recovery [the V-shaped recovery began in December 2008] and laid the foundation for a modern, more well-balanced economy that will produce millions of good new jobs, vibrant new businesses and lots of new wealth for innovators [which hasn't happened] (see).

 But getting back to Sanders vs. Hillary. How will Hillary during tseehe primary debates handle Sanders' economic honesty, that Obamanomics is a failure and that the real unemployment rate is close to 11% and not the Obama/Clinton 5.3%? When Sanders goes through the history (as I did) of Bill Clinton changing  the metrics for calculating  unemployment (falsifying it to make his presidency look better) that is going to make for one hell of an interesting debate, and a learning event for the American people.

Obama sworn in as president of racist, white supremacist, black lives don't matter America
 
Let me understand this. The United States of America, perhaps the most racially integrated society on earth, which made a black man not just a two term president and leader of the Free World, but the most powerful black man in all of human history, is a white supremacist racist nation?
 
Suppose this were true,  what would it mean? That Obama was made president to conceal our white racism? To fool the world into believing that we're a post-racial society when we're still  racially unjust and oppressive? If so then is  a white supremacist America with a black president the new American exceptionalism?  LOL!!

Why on the evening of 9/11 was there a massive candlelight vigil in Tehran's Madar Square (and nowhere else in Iran) with thousands of Iranians expressing support for the American people? My guess is that it was staged by the mullahs because they were scared that we knew about,  or would discover, their complicity with al Qaida in the attacks; and that we might bomb the living shiite out of them (see).

Not Democrat, Republican, Socialist or Communist peace. Islam is a religion of Islamic peace and only Islamic peace. And "Islamic peace" means Moslem world conquest and domination after millions have been slaughtered and killed. Only in that sense is Mohammed's WAR ISLAM a religion of peace.

In my previous piece I wrote that in lieu of Barack Obama's worthless, Munich-like nuclear containment deal with radical, terrorist,  expansionary Iran he has completed a tragic process (for his legacy and the country) that began in April 2009: the re-Carterization of US foreign policy, which has turned this fateful year of 2015 into Obama's 1979. Indeed, this was the year when the hapless Jimmy Carter under pressure from the Democrat left (the party of weakness, appeasement and retreat that lost the peace in Vietnam and now in strife torn Iraq) deserted the moderate, pro-Western, progressive regime of Shah Reza Pahlavi (because of his necessary crackdown on radical Islam) to butt-kiss his implacable, Islamic supremacist foe: the evil, power mad Ayatollah Khomeini. Carter's monumental blunder midwifed the Iranian Revolution which eventually destroyed his presidency after an agonizing 444 day hostage crisis-which Khomeini deliberately ended on the day of Ronald  Reagan's inaugural to further humiliate the defeated and despised Jimmy Carter.
 
 Now because of Obama's Carter-like blunder with Iran at Vienna US foreign policy is intotal disarray with America perceived universally as a steadily collapsing superpower in disastrous global retreat creating chaos and war in its wake-Obama's new world (dis) order . And incredibly ironic as it is this very same Jimmy Carter, just 22 days before Obama's Carter-like blunder with Iran, and oddly agreeing with the anti-Obama right, admitted what is plain for all to see:  US foreign policy is in catastrophic free fall. Indeed, at the Apsen Institute (a liberal think tank) in Washington DC the 90 year old Carter shocked his left leaning, pro-Obama audience telling them what they least wanted to hear: that American power, credibility and prestige on the world stage are in inevitable and irreversible  decline; and that our relationships with most nations are worse now than  when Obama took over the presidency from George W. Bush (see).  A damning indictment of Obama if there ever was one.
 
Though Obama vehemently denies this analysis saying against the hard, cold facts of growing international  turmoil and strife that America under his leadership "is the strongest and most respected it has ever been," and the world is "the less violent and most peaceful in history" everything Carter said about our decline was painfully true-except for one thing: its "irreversible inevitability."
 
 Yes, America under the feckless, unfit to command, lead from behind Obama is declining economically, militarily and geopolitically; and there is certainly much truth to the view that Obama is intentionally diminishing our power absurdly thinking that it's best for world peace (see). But this decline is not  "inevitable" and "irreversible" as the excessively pessimistic Jimmy Carter believes*.  For the same was said of our great country in the post-Vietnam, post-Watergate years when Gerald Ford and Carter were presidents. For it was then that our greatest enemy, the Soviet Union, was advancing across the world; and reaching its apogee of influence and power seemed to be winning the Cold War-just as jihadists (al-Qaida, ISIS, Iran, etc.) seem to be winning today.
 
*It's more likely that Carter, like Obama, is a declinist; and hopes that our decline is irreversible because he thinks it's for the best.
 
Then at the right historical moment a providential man named Ronald Reagan appeared to reverse America's "irreversible decline" making us great again with inspiring, patriotic, America first leadership that revived our economy and national power and ended the 30 year Cold War. And now more than ever we Americans must have faith that Providence will bring good out of the harm and evil that Obama and the left are doing; and that we can and will have a Reagan like era of national renewal of our power, wealth and greatness again. It is coming. I can see it.  Can you?

THE SIGN OF ASHTON CARTER
My thanks to AnthonyG
 
From before the start of the Obama administration it has been my firm belief that the providential significance and purpose of this destructive left-wing president-apart from whatever he imagines that to be-is to lead this country into great and terrible peril and wake it up. Barack Obama in a very real sense is NATIONAL SHOCK TREATMENT (see) designed by God to wake us up-just as Jimmy Carter's ill-starred presidency awakened us from our "national malaise" and "crisis in confidence" and set the stage for Ronald Reagan. And more than ever I am certain that I'm right.
 
 Now in addition to Carter's Aspen shocker, prefiguring the Carter-like blunder with Iran was  the swearing in of Ashton Carter as Defense Secretary earlier this year. It's not so much the person of Secretary Carter that’s significant as it is the symbolism of his name; for a man with the name "Carter" is defense secretary for a president who like Jimmy Carter is systematically weakening our defenses and emboldening our foes. But on top of this there are the same familiar Iran-related signs of weakness and decline which suggest that Providence is at work in these events and (like Reagan succeeding Carter) good will come from the harm and evil Obama and the left are doing.
 
Indeed, Ash Carter was sworn into office on February 17th-the month of the iranian Revolution 36 years earlier *. And just as the triplet number 444 (as I said here)  is symbolic of Jimmy Carter's terrible, tragic, costly blunders with the Shah and Khomeini, and, as I said, that on the 2444th day from Obama's election (the Vienna deal) which fell on the 29th anniversary of the 444 day hostage crisis, remarkably this number 444 appears twice from the start of Ashton Carter's secretaryship. This is what I mean
 
On February 17th, the day that Carter became DefSec, it was the 2220th day of the Obama presidency (see). And on the day that Obama's God awful deal with Iran was finalized it was 148 days from February 17th (see). Whether mere  chaotic chance or God's purposeful plans were at work in these events is for the reader to decide. But be it God or chance it is simply amazing that the doubling of the number 2220 produces 4440 (444 x 10), and when 148 is multiplied by three it equals exactly, precisely, incredibly to the Jimmy Carter-caused hostage crisis related sign of 444.
 
Defense Secretary Carter, so I believe, is one of many unmistakable signs that Barack Obama's sixth year (2015) will be seen by history as analogous to 1979-Jimmy Carter's third disastrous year in office; and because of our country’s badly weakening defenses (symbolized by a man named “Carter” heading Defense) we should expect the hell from our enemies in the time ahead.
 
*Khomeini returned to Iran from exile on February 1, 1979, and started the Islamic Revolution less than two weeks later.
 
POSTSCRIPT II
 
General Carter Ham 
 
THE GENERAL WITH THE NAME "CARTER" AND OBAMA'S DISASTER IN LIBYA  
 
EXCERPTED FROM:
 
 
" And last but not least, General Carter Ham, the man now heading the North African Command, was in charge of the initial military operation in Libya. That's "Carter" as in Jimmy who gave us the catastrophe of nuclear, genocidal, terrorist Iran; and "Ham" as in the meat derived from swine, an animal offensive to Moslems and unlawful to eat. These are awful signs of the pig-like infidels Sarkozy, Obama and NATO making things worse in Libya like Carter did in Iran when he deserted the pro-Western Shah for the Islamist Khomeine (see). Does this portend that in the end we will abandon Libyia to KhomeinI like radicals?
 
*Obama and the West are siding with the more Islamist, anti-American of the two tribes in this conflict over the more secular and moderate Kaddafyites"

BARACK OBAMA IS NATIONAL SHOCK TREATMENT 


"ALL men by nature desire to know. An indication of this is the delight we take in our senses; for even apart from their usefulness they are loved for themselves; and above all others the sense of sight. For not only with a view to action, but even when we are not going to do anything, we prefer seeing (one might say) to everything else. The reason is that this, most of all the senses, makes us know and brings to light many differences between things.
