 Bullheaded nObama Begins Implementing Iran Nuke Deal  
On Sunday, Iran was supposed to start dismantling some 15,000 centrifuges and the U.S. was supposed to start giving Iran that $150 billion in sanctions relief. So far, only Barack nObama has announced that he will hold up his end of the Iran nuclear deal. "I hereby direct you to take all appropriate additional measures to ensure the prompt and effective implementation of the U.S. commitments set forth in the JCPOA, in accordance with U.S. law," nObama wrote in a memorandum to the secretaries of State, Treasury, Commerce and Energy. That announcement came after Iran announced last week that it test-fired a ballistic missile capable of delivering a payload to Israel, something that the U.S. condemned as violating UN Security Council Resolution 1929, which imposed further sanctions against the country. That was followed by an Iran state media segment that showed a tunnel filled with medium and long-range ballistic missiles. Amir Ali Hajizadeh, a general in Iran's Revolutionary Guard, said there are many such installations scattered across the nation in case, y'know, "enemies make a mistake." Still, nObama continues to ram headfirst through the brick wall of doubts about his deal. Of the reports of Iran's militarization, his administration said the deal that's supposed to ensure a nuclear-weapon free Iran is not contingent on the International Atomic Energy Agency's investigation into the possible weaponization of Iran's nuclear program, a report due Dec. 15. Meanwhile, no U.S. aircraft carrier is floating in Middle Eastern waters as the deal takes effect, which shows that nObama is willing to sit on his hands, wishing the best intentions from Iran. Iran's enemies, indeed, have made a mistake.  -The Patriot Post

 Israel Fights Terror and Moral Relativism  
There are a number of insidious aspects that form the heart of progressive ideology. But none are more insidious than the Left’s love affair with moral relativism. And nowhere is that contemptibly bankrupt notion pursued with more vigor than the ongoing attempt to blame both sides in what is looking more and more like a Palestinian-incited third intifada taking shape in Israel.
          Unsurprisingly, the latest campaign of murder, assaults and stabbings perpetrated by thugs and wannabe terrorists was engendered by a lie. “Arabs are convinced that Israel is set on destroying, desecrating or 'Judaizing' Haram al-Sharif, the Jerusalem compound that includes al-Aqsa, Islam’s third-holiest site,”explains New York Post columnist Benny Avni. “As [Palestinian President Mahmoud] Abbas indelicately put it in a mid-September speech, the Jews are trying to 'defile al-Aqsa with their filthy feet,' and must be stopped.”
          Thus, it doesn’t matter that Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has denied that assertion, banned both Arab and Jewish Israeli officials from visiting the site, and offered to meet with Abbas to defuse the violence. It doesn’t matter that Jewish officials have pointed out the same arrangement in place since 1967, giving the Jordanian Waqf (Islamic trust) de facto control of the site, remains intact.     
          Nor does it matter that Abbas, who continues to spread that rumor, has also been caught in another vicious lie. In a speech Wednesday, Abbas claimed Israelis “executed” an innocent 13-year-old boy, Ahmad Mansara, “in cold blood.” First, Mansara is hardly an innocent. He and his 15-year-old cousin were captured on video stabbing an Orthodox Jew and a Jewish child. The 13-year-old then attempted to attack two policemen and was shot. “I went there to stab Jews,” he told investigators about his crime spree. As for his “execution," here is a picture of Mansara recovering from his wounds — in a Jewish hospital.  -The Patriot Post

 Clinton Mulls Australia-Style Gun Confiscation  
During a town hall event in Keene, New Hampshire, Hilly Clinton said that she'd be willing to consider gun control for the United States of the caliber of Australia and UK's gun bans. "Several communities have done gun buyback programs," Clinton said. "I think it would be worth considering doing it on the national level, if that could be arranged. ... I don't know enough details to know how we would do it or how it would work, but certainly the Australian example is worth looking at." This is not the "common sense" gun control Clinton hawked in the past — this is an extreme stance, and a few, ahem, details get in the way of her plans. Sure, after a mass murder in 1996 that left 35 people dead, Australia banned some guns it deemed politically incorrect and implemented a buyback program that netted a million firearms. As Varad Mehta writes for The Federalist, Democrats talk nostalgically about peaceful buyback program, but the reality would be that the buyback would be accompanied with the iron fist of the government making the program mandatory. How would you take millions of guns from millions of Americans? "Armed men would be dispatched to confiscate guns," Mehta writes, "they would be met by armed men, and blood would be shed. Australia is a valid example for America only if you are willing for that blood to be spilled in torrents and rivers. To choose Australia is to choose civil war." For the sake of the nation, hopefully Clinton flip-flops on this — for the right to self-defense, codified in the Second Amendment, is also intertwined into the very culture of the United States.
          Still, we know her campaign has its eyes on the polls, and while most everyone wants a better background check system, banning or confiscating guns is deeply unpopular. So it's little wonder that her spokeswoman, Jennifer Palmieri, tried to walk back Clinton's remarks and claim that all Clinton wanted was "a very common sense proposal" about background checks and gun manufacturer liability. Wrong. Clinton was pretty clear about buybacks and confiscation. But go ahead — run on gun confiscation in the general election.  -The Patriot Post

 Canada's Liberal Government Will Be a Lesson to Us  
Oh, Canada. The Liberal Party swept Canada's elections last night, placing Justin Trudeau in the prime minister position, and snatching up 184 of the 338 seats in the country's parliament. This will allow the party to rule without the help of any other political factions, and the new policies will affect the United States. For example, Canada's old leadership supported and lobbied for the Keystone XL pipeline. But banish that dream, as Trudeau, 43, has been likened to a young nObama. The Canadian leader said his goal is to improve relations with his southern neighbor, and he is less invested in the project than the last Canadian leader. Furthermore, The Wall Street Journal noted that Canada will pull out from the fight against the Islamic State — probably a policy nObama wishes he could adopt. In fact, Trudeau has vowed to employ the laundry list of liberal policy wishes, including raising taxes on the rich, running deficits in the budget and legalizing marijuana. Hasn't Canada watched the U.S. economy flounder because of a liberal-run economy for the last seven years? Now, it will be the case study of the fruit of a liberal government.  -The Patriot Post

 Got Law? How Hilly Clinton's Lawlessness Gets Ignored…  
{pjtv.com} ~ Hilly Clinton breaks the law, gets people who work for her killed, and she lies to the American people... How is she still the media’s darling? You need to watch this one “Afterburner” video — certainly before the deluge of media coverage surrounding her Benghazi hearing, or maybe lack thereof, comes your way today.

 The Senators Who Voted Against Kate's Law...  
{ Rob Knowles} ~ It’s easy for man to let others die if those who are dying are out of sight. That much we’ve learned from war... Setting aside the morality of particular wars, war is easy to support when you’re not the one fighting. This ethical defect we’ve developed as a species was on full display this week when the Senate voted down Kate’s Law. Kate’s Law, otherwise known as the “Stop Sanctuary Policies and Protect Americans Act,” would have withheld federal grants from sanctuary cities (cities that refuse to obey federal immigration laws, thus protecting criminal illegal aliens), and mandated a minimum five-year prison sentence for any illegal caught re-entering the United States who had a prior aggregated felony conviction, or two prior illegal re-entry convictions. This bill was colloquially known as Kate’s Law because San Fransisco resident Kate Steinle was shot and killed in July by Francisco Lopez-Sanchez, an illegal alien and seven-time felon who had previously been deported five times.        http://lastresistance.com/14339/to-the-senators-who-voted-against-k...

 Feds Fight Release of Hilly Whitewater Indictment draft  
{allenwestrepublic.com} ~ In a press release sent to reporters late on Tuesday, Judicial Watch announced its intent to file a Freedom of Information Act lawsuit against NARA for withholding an indictment written by Hickman Ewing, Jr.... the deputy independent counsel and prosecutor investigating Whitewater, in 1996. The agency admitted it had found the records in March 2015 but is withholding the documents, claiming their release would constitute an unwarranted invasion of Clinton’s privacy. “Judicial Watch has confirmed the existence of draft indictments of Hillary Clinton for her lies and obstruction in the Whitewater bank-fraud investigation,” the group’s president Tom Fitton wrote in the statement. “The Obama administration is refusing to release these records out of concern for Hillary Clinton’s privacy. Hillary Clinton’s privacy cannot be allowed to trump the public’s interest in knowing more about whether she obstructed justice and lied to a federal grand jury.”        http://allenwestrepublic.com/2015/10/21/feds-fight-release-of-hilla...

 Busted!… nObama & Clinton Couldn’t Decide Which Video to Blame  
{gopthedailydose.com} ~ Barack nObama and Hilly Clinton plotted to blame the Benghazi terrorist attack on the “God versus Allah” video by Pastor Jon Courson before they settled on the “Innocence of Muslims” YouTube video... Before the body of Ambassador Chris Stevens was recovered the nObama administration was scheming to deceive the American public about the Benghazi attacks. The lifeless body of Ambassador Stevens was later dragged from the Benghazi US consulate after it came under attack by Muslim extremists on September 11, 2012. The next morning Barack nObama and Hilly Clinton released a statement on the Benghazi attack – blaming the attack on an anti-Muslim video.

 Rep. Jim Jordan catches Hilly in Benghazi lies  
{Robert Spencer} ~ Hilly knew from the beginning that this was a jihad terror attack from al-Qaeda. She knew it was a “planned attack — not a protest,” and then she went before the world and said it was a protest over a video about Muhammad, and had the filmmaker jailed... The most insidious aspect of this whole disgraceful episode is that she — and the nObama Administration as a whole — chose to blame the freedom of speech for the killings of Ambassador Stevens and the others. And that’s a sure sign that they have the freedom of speech in their gun sights. "Representative Jim Jordan, Republican of Ohio, pressed Hilly Rodham Clinton on early suggestions that protests against an inflammatory anti-Islam video had played a role in the attack in Benghazi. “Where did the false narrative start?” Mr. Jordan said. “It started with you, Madame Secretary.” Mrs. Clinton said that she had mentioned the video as a warning to the region, and that she had not been saying it set off the attack. Mr. Jordan then displayed email exchanges that showed Mrs. Clinton calling the incident a “planned attack — not a protest.”        http://www.jihadwatch.org/2015/10/rep-jim-jordan-catches-hillary-in...

 Army Fires 120,000 Soldiers Amid Budget Cuts  
{Adam Kredo} ~ The Army has disclosed that it has cut 80,000 soldiers since 2010 and plans to reduce the force by another 40,000 by the end of 2017, bringing the total active number of troops to 450,000... according to a report to Congress that was recently released under a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request. “Nearly every Army installation will experience reductions of some size,” according to the report, which was obtained and released by the Federation of American Scientists (FAS). It warns of a “permanent reduction of sizable numbers of members of the Armed Forces,” which translates to a 21 percent total cut across the board. “Significant structure cuts at overseas installations have already occurred,” according to the report. The Army will be forced to further cut its budget in 2018 and beyond, according to the report “These force structure reductions and the resulting impacts on installation populations could be significant to both military communities and to the defense posture of our nation.” While our enemies are building up we are reducing. This pres is an idiot.

 Clinton Something Funny In Being Questioned... 
We might normally expect that the serious nature of the incident which occurred at Benghazi, a terrorist attack on an American facility that resulted in the deaths of four Americans... would encourage a somber tone among all participants, most especially on the part of the witness. If for no other reason than in the interest of good taste or the wish toproject the appearance, however insincere, of a proper amount of respect being shown, proper decorum would have kept laughter out of the witness’ testimony in the HouseSelect Committee proceedings. The woman testifying should have recognized that she was in a hot seat, accused of criminal wrongdoing and likely espionage as well as the moral considerations of ultimately being the one responsible for those same American deaths. The House Select Committee on Benghazi hearings should have been a Clinton Cackle-free zone. As one incapable of respecting anything or anyone other than herself, her immediate circle and her political and faux-charitable wealth generating machinery, Hillary Clinton was her usual classless, self-obsessed, arrogant and condescending self. Even as she was being called to account publicly for crimes and mismanagement that resulted in death and destruction, she found a place for inappropriate, odd laughter.        http://rickwells.us/archives/21145

 Tennessee Parents Fight Islamic Indoctrination  
{fixthisnation.com} ~ New state education standards require that Tennessee middle schoolers learn about world religions, but a growing number of parents say the new history books are filled with Islamic propaganda... In Sparta, a group calling themselves Citizens Against Islamic Indoctrination is pressuring the local school board to return the textbooks. “I mean, it only takes one child to take that book home and say the Five Pillars of the Islamic faith and covert, right?” asked Anthony Wright, the group’s chairman. He was one of 300 people who gathered at Christian Life First Church Tuesday night to strategize the next move. At issue are My World history books, published by Pearson, that spend an inordinate amount of time on the history of Islam. As part of relaying that history, the book contains several Islamic prayers and rituals, some of which 7th graders are expected to memorize. But this fight goes well beyond Sparta. Last week, the Williamson County school board addressed the controversial new standards as well. And in the state capital, Rep. Sheila Butt (R.) has introduced a bill that would delay religious instruction until high school.

 Bombshells Drop as Hilly Clinton Testifies at Benghazi Hearing  
{Onan Coca} ~ A couple of very interesting moments occurred today when Hilly Clinton appeared before the Benghazi committee. Rep. Trey Gowdy (R-SC) opened things up with an epic rant, excoriating anyone and everyone who has ever suggested the Benghazi hearings were about Hilly Clinton... However, as spectacular as Rep. Gowdy’s opening statement was, there was a bombshell that came shortly afterward when Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH) asked Clinton if she knew all along that the attack on the embassy was a terrorist attack and not a random uprising. In an email that the American people had no idea existed until it was unveiled, Clinton is seen telling the Egyptian President (less than 24 hours after the attack) that the Libyan embassy was attacked by Ansar al Sharia and that it had nothing to do with a video! Rep. Jordan revealed three new communications from Clinton that show the State Department knew within a few hours what had transpired in Benghazi, but then inexplicably they told the American people a completely bold faced lie. Clinton told the Presidents of Libya and Egypt, as well as her own family, that Benghazi had been attacked by Al Qaeda linked terrorists and that the attack had nothing to do with a YouTube video or a spontaneous protest.        http://eaglerising.com/25421/bombshells-drop-as-hillary-clinton-tes...

 Benghazi cover up tied to U.S. gun-smuggling operation: Documents  
{Jim Kouri CPP} ~ During Thursday’s House Select Committee on Benghazi hearing, the news media and the Democratic Party information machine appeared to be creating their desired narrative... the GOP is on a witch hunt to stop Hillary Clinton’s inauguration as President. But the hearings did manage to force the release of documents that were being hidden by the alleged conspirators. Some of the many documents released by a watchdog group that investigates and exposes corruption and criminal activity by government officials and agencies provides evidence that then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and other senior officials, as well as President Barack Obama, deceived the American people regarding the Sept. 11, 2012, Benghazi U.S. consulate massacre. The pages released show that top administration officials were handed intelligence reports within hours of the attack that stated the Islamic terrorists’ actions had been planned up to 10 days before the attack and the goal was simply to assassinate as many Americans as possible.        http://www.aim.org/guest-column/benghazi-cover-up-tied-to-u-s-gun-s...

The Consequences of Mayhem
Jonathan Tobin
.
.
     {jewishworldreview.com} ~ As bad as the situation in Israel seemed, Tuesday began with even more Palestinian terror that sent shock waves through the country.
.
     A pair of terrorists entered a Jerusalem bus and stabbed and shot passengers, killing two and wounding many more until police stopped them. Elsewhere in the city another Jew was killed by a Palestinian terror attack that drove a car onto a crowded sidewalk and then attempted to finish his victims off with a knife.
.
     There were also more stabbings in the city of Ra'anana. But while the details of the attacks vary, the dynamic is clear. These are for all intents and purposes suicide attacks that are motivated by religious fervor. The Palestinian Authority leadership's false charges about Israel — broadcast on their official media — about Israel's supposed intent to harm the mosques on the Temple Mount has set off a wave of religiously-inspired terror attacks that it can't control.
.
     The question now is what comes next? Will the Palestinians eventually come to their senses and stop the madness? Or will this situation continue to spiral out of control with lives lost? Yet whatever the answers to these questions turn out to be, there is no question which side in the conflict will come out the loser from this disastrous turn of events.
.
     What PA leader Mahmoud Abbas may be about to learn is the same hard lesson his predecessor Yasir Arafat absorbed during the second intifada.
.
     While it is clearly in the interests of Abbas interests to keep a lid on the violence lest he lose complete control of the situation, it's a lot easier to start a holy war than to stop one.
.
     Abbas sought to compete with his Hamas rivals by sounding bellicose against Israel and seized on a perennial favorite of Palestinian leaders: inciting hate and fear about Jerusalem. But having convinced ordinary Palestinians that Israel intended to interfere with the Temple Mount mosques or to desecrate them with their "filthy Jewish feet," Abbas can't be surprised that many of them are undertaking personal terror attacks on Jews.
.
     What Abbas wanted was to bolster his image among ordinary Palestinians as a tough opponent of the Jews. An ineffectual and corrupt leader of kleptocracy serving the 10th year of the four-year term as president of the PA to which he was once elected, Abbas has little credibility with Arabs or Jews left. Yet even now that he sees the disaster that is unfolding that could threaten his rule, Abbas can't stop the incitement. He doubled down on it by speaking today of some of the terrorist assailants of Jews as innocent victims who were gunned down by Israeli oppression. Nor has he stopped the talk about the danger to the mosques.
.
     But while this new wave of terror has shocked Israelis and made ordinary life difficult in areas with mixed populations such as Jerusalem, it is the Palestinians who will be the big losers here just as they were during the second intifada. The loss of life and the sense of fear inspired by these horrifying incidents have shaken Israelis. But they know that if their nation could survive the horror of the second intifada, which took the lives of over 1,000 Israelis and far more Palestinians, this episode won't defeat their country.
.
     On the other hand, the consequences of this mayhem for Palestinians will be terrible. If, as happened during the last intifada, Israel is forced to close the borders with the West Bank in order to stem the violence, it is the already shaky Palestinian economy that will collapse, not Israel's. As much as doomsayers continue to tell Israelis that they can't go on with the status quo, Israel has gotten economically stronger in the last generation while the Palestinians, mired in corruption and still refusing to make peace, lag far behind. War, especially the kind of low-level terror that Palestinian society has embraced, will do to them what the second intifada did, and erase years of economic progress while also making cooperation with more prosperous Israel — the key to any hope for their advancement — simply impossible.
.
     Abbas and many of his people may be counting on the usual dynamic of the conflict to work to their advantage abroad and in international forums. The current strife may deepen Israel's diplomatic isolation. The more Palestinians embrace terrorism, the more likely much of the world will be to condemn all Israeli measures of self-defense. They will likely also buy into the false notion that Palestinians are acting out of hopelessness rather than as part of a religious holy war that is inextricably tied to their century-long struggle against Zionism.
.
     UN resolutions, even those unfairly condemning Israeli self-defense, won't change the status quo on the Temple Mount that is defended by the Israeli government that already discriminates against Jews. Yet more condemnations of Israel won't do a thing for the Palestinians. If we are to assume that Palestinians really do want a two-state solution (and based on the PA's consistent refusal to accept the legitimacy of a Jewish state no matter where its borders are drawn, there is no reason to believe that they do) this new terror surge is exactly the wrong way to go about it.
.
     Israelis already were worried that a withdrawal from much of the West Bank (something that every Israeli government has offered to do — including Netanyahu's — in the last 15 years) would duplicate Ariel Sharon's disastrous experiment in the pullout from Gaza. But now that Abbas has whipped up the kind of hate that has Palestinians seeking to slaughter Jews they see on the street or on buses, further withdrawals seem utter madness.
.
     By embracing terror, Palestinians have deepened the divide with Israelis while making even left-wingers less likely to trust them. Stern measures intended to prevent more terror attacks will have widespread support from right to left. Nor will many Israelis, even those most likely to want to believe in the idea that Abbas is a man of peace, soon forget the way he stoked hatred and needlessly caused so much loss of life.
.
     If Palestinians want prosperity and peace, they need to drop the hate and start learning to accept Israel as a fact of life that will continue even if they attained statehood. But so long as their quest for sovereignty is bound up with holy war, they'll get neither.
.
     As with past unnecessary conflicts they started, the Palestinians will be the ones who will suffer most from this one

Pelosi Disaster!  95% Of Americans Tuned Out Impeachment Show Trials On Friday — Only The Second Day Of Testimony

Despite the constant hype Americans are already tuning out the sham impeachment trials.

On the second day of the public show trials 95% of Americans turned off the nonsense.

Americans are worn out by all of the fake news and hysteria.

Yawn: 95% of U.S. Adults Skipped Day 2 of Democrats' Impeachment Hearings 

Yawn: 95% of U.S. Adults Skipped Friday’s Impeachment Hearings

Americans aren’t exactly obsessed with the Democrats’ impeachment hearings, it seems. Friday’s second day of live, wall-to-wall coverage drew an average of 12.7 million viewers on ABC, CBS, NBC, CNN,

Flashback: Horrible News For Shifty Schiff – Majority Of Americans Don’t Want Impeachment, 76% Don’t Trust Dems And Believe Media Is Pushing The Sham

No One in American Wants Impeachment except the Far-left Socialist Democrats and their Corrupt Media. They hate President Trump because he is a winner. He beat them and he’s making America great again as he said he would.

The Democrats and their corrupt media are totally blinded by their rage and they don’t realize that no one is in favor of impeachment.

We reported a week ago that FOX News released a poll where they stated that 49% of Americans were for Trump Impeachment. But their polling was flawed. The real extrapolated results of the poll using an accurate proportion of Republicans, Democrats and Independents showed that only 30% of Americans are in favor of Trump’s Impeachment and they’re all Democrats.

Next, a few days ago we reported on another poll that was consistent with the results of our extrapolated FOX News poll.

Nearly three quarters of all Americans have little or no trust in the way that Schifty Schiff is running the impeachment process –

Heritage Action   Heritage_Action
 

You won’t hear this in the mainstream media: Nearly three fourths of Americans have little to no trust in the House Democrats’ handling of their impeachment process. 🤔

Today another poll was released with similar results.

Most Americans believe that the corrupt media is trying to help get President Trump impeached. Three-quarter of Republicans, half of independents and even a third of Democrats believe this to be the case. No one trusts Schifty Shiff or the corrupt media pushing his impeachment sham.

IT Guy@ITGuy1959
 

1- "Seventy-six percent (76%) of Republicans and a plurality (48%) of voters not affiliated with either major political party say most reporters are trying to help impeach Trump, a view shared by only 36% of Democrats."

Let's recast that last phrase 

Rasmussen Reports @Rasmussen_Poll
 

Most Say Media Working With Democrats to Impeach Trump... 

This is perhaps the worst gaffe in modern political history.

This Schiff Show does not have a happy ending for the Democrats. Even with the support of the entire corrupt fake news media, it’s a total sham and everyone knows it!
