The Iran Farce

March 31, 2015

No one really believes that Iran can be trusted and no one really believes Iran will give up its pursuit of a nuclear weapon. That makes the desperation in this administration’s courting of Iran embarrassing, confusing, and frightening – and a farce.

Obama has not only ignored Israeli concerns in his frantic attempt to reach an agreement, any agreement, with Iran; he took personal, vindictive swipes at Prime Minister Netanyahu and subtly attempted to influence Israel’s election against him. It is embarrassing to all Americans to see a staunch ally such as Israel being deliberately insulted.

At the same time, Obama seems to be trying hard to help Iran become a nuclear power. The delays in negotiations, including the latest one, have given Iran plenty of time to hide its nuclear bomb-making facilities while Obama continues to make beneficial concessions to Iran. As if that isn’t baffling enough, Obama has the US helping Iran fight ISIS in Iraq while we are fighting against Iran in Syria.

Saudi Arabia, fearing the inevitability of a nuclear Iran resulting from Obama’s negotiations, is now contemplating arming itself with nuclear weapons. The Middle East is on the verge of nuclear proliferation and becoming much more dangerous – with nukes available to Islamic fanatics who have vowed to annihilate Israel on their way to conquering the world.

Obama seems to be blind to it all and holding fast to a policy that is naïvely unrealistic. Regardless of any agreement that may be reached, the inevitable violations by Iran will be handled through the UN Security Council. This is sure to be a slow (and impotent) process that will guarantee Iran gets enough time to complete its quest for the bomb. It’s a win-win situation for Iran and total loss for the rest of the world.

A nuclear Middle East will become Obama’s legacy but by that time, he will be out of office and on the golf course, blaming whoever inherits the White House – and the media will back him up.

Pelosi’s Pathetic Posturing

March 4, 2015

It is both moronic and hypocritical that many partisan Democrats complained of the “political theater” of Netanyahu’s speech to Congress after witnessing the despicable act Nancy Pelosi deliberately staged for the entire world to see. It is also sad that Washington has become such a putrid, political swamp.

One has never had to guess what stance Pelosi will take on any issue. She is a far-left liberal and a blind, partisan, Obama supporter and, therefore, very predictable. Why, then, did she feel it necessary to express her, and Obama’s, distaste of Netanyahu by turning her back in such a crude, despicable manner?

It is simply because she, like Obama, is an elite filled with a sense of “superior intelligence” and feels it necessary to denigrate anyone with a different opinion before it is seen to be more reasonable and acceptable than her own. In other words, it is fear of being challenged and found inferior. Pelosi made a career out of demeaning critics, sneering at criticism and, especially, making foolish statements. This was just icing on her ignorant cake.

It was not enough that Obama snubbed Netanyahu and practically threw Israel under the bus in his political eagerness for a deal, any deal, with Iran. Lap dog Pelosi felt it necessary to make it clear to all how low this administration’s regard really is for such a solid, longtime ally. She performed with gleeful pride, totally ignorant of her own ignorance.

It is hard to brush off Pelosi’s buffoon-like behavior as many do with vice president Joe Biden’s court jester antics because Pelosi comes with malice. She knows precisely what she is doing even though she makes it seem like it is off-the-cuff. It is not. It is off-her-rocker behavior, but it is deliberate. It is also very pathetic.

Choosing Politics Over Reality

March 3, 2015

Obama is absolutely desperate for a deal with Iran because his foreign policies have been disastrous and, politically, he needs something positive. His current “deal” with Iran is a politically expedient ruse to pass off as a foreign policy achievement, but it will not stop Iran from developing a nuclear weapon.

The Obama deal supposedly deters Iran’s nuclear program for ten years, but Iran will have a nuclear weapon long before then because Iran doesn’t keep agreements – and everyone knows it. Iran has also, unequivocally, stated its reason for having a nuclear weapon: to eradicate Israel. Obama and many sycophantic Democrats remain willfully blind to this fact.

This is why Netanyahu is highly concerned and spoke directly to Congress. Ignored and insulted by Obama, he addressed Congress in the hope that they are not as mired in political nonsense as Obama is. Unfortunately, many are and reality will, once again, take a back seat to pure politics.

Nancy Pelosi was “near tears”, walking out offended that Netanyahu wasn’t toeing the Obama line. Reiterating Obama’s rhetoric that “all options are on the table for preventing a nuclear-armed Iran”, Pelosi arrogantly took listening off the table. She was “saddened by the condescension toward our knowledge” as if Netanyahu, who deals with Middle East violence daily, knows nothing of Iran. Pelosi, of course, displayed no embarrassment at her elite condescension while she venomously insulted Netanyahu.

Netanyahu knows more about foreign affairs, international negotiations, and hatred of Jews than Obama can ever imagine. He speaks with authority and deals with reality. Obama speaks with egotistical self-righteousness and deals with fantasy. Obama and his unconditional followers need to ridicule and silence Netanyahu to keep their self-esteem and their “dream” alive. Nothing else matters.

The world will now learn what a nuclear-armed Iran will do or what an Israel fighting for its survival will do. In either case, the Middle East will explode as another Obama “transformation” comes to fruition. It will join with many other failures to define his legacy.
