 CT Dems Remove Jefferson and Jackson From Fundraiser 
The leaders of the Democrat Party in Connecticut voted unanimously to remove the names of Andrew Jackson and Thomas Jefferson from an annual fundraiser. At the behest of the NAACP, the enlightend progressives in the Nutmeg State decided to scrub all mention of the two founders of the Democrat Party because Jefferson owned slaves and Jackson instigated the Trail of Tears. Nick Balletto, the recently elected chair of the state party, said, "I see it as the right thing to do. I wasn't looking to be a trailblazer or set off a trend that's going to affect the rest of the country. Hopefully, they'll follow suit when they see it's the right thing to do." As pundit Dan McLaughlin notes, this is also the party of Franklin Roosevelt, the man who signed off on the Japanese internment, and Woodrow Wilson, the anti-Semite who segregated the federal government. Under Barack nObama's leadership, race relations are in the tank, as The New York Times reports about 60% of Americans think race relations are generally poor — down from the two-thirds of Americans who thought race relations were good when nObama first entered office. Thanks nObama. So what's the solution? For the enlightened leftist Nutmeggers, the first step is erasing their party's history and denying that their intellectual forbearers had anything to do with where the country is today.   -The Patriot Post

 Pantsuit on Fire — Hilly’s Busted, but Is She Caught? 
Could it be? Could the downfall of the Clinton Crime Family, a political machine that makes Boss Tweed’s Tammany Hall corruption of the late 19th century look like a middle school 4-H club, finally be near?
          “I did not email any classified material to anyone on my email,” Hilly Clinton said of her secret servers in March. “There is no classified material. So I’m certainly well aware of the classification requirements and did not send classified material.”
          But last week, I. Charles McCullough, inspector general of the intelligence community, contacted the FBI about a "potential compromise of classified information" through Clinton's email. The IG found four instances where Clinton handled information labeled “secret" — classified information that he noted should "never have been transmitted via an unclassified personal system." And that was out of a sample size of just 40 emails. Imagine what he'll find in the rest of the 30,000 emails she didn't already destroy.
          In March, the nation discovered that Clinton used a personally owned email server housed in her New York residence to conduct official business on behalf of the State Department. At long last, after five months of curtailed information and growing controversy, it appears Hilly and Bill’s habits of disregarding the law might catch up with them. At least we hope so.  -The Patriot Post

 Stunning and credible theory on the secret Iranian nuclear side deals  
{Doug Ross} ~ hanoi John Kerry is lying when he claims he doesn’t know what is in the Iranian side deals. He would rather pretend ignorance than admit their contents... No one calls the ruling class on their lies. With a dysfunctional media — that is now fully intertwined with the government — the American people are left bereft of real news and thoughtful analysis. We live in an alternate reality. Nothing is real, except their lies and only their lies. Lies are now the truth.
.
 Top Clinton Fundraiser: Hilly Should Release Server  
{Michael Warren} ~ A former nObama administration official says Hilly Clinton should release her private email server to the public... Steven Rattner, the "auto czar" during the first months of Barack nObama's presidency, said on MSNBC's Morning Joe Monday that Clinton, a Democratic candidate for president, should allow others to access the server she kept in her New York home while serving as secretary of state. Questions have been raised about whether any classified or sensitive information ran through her relatively unsecure server, and two inspectors general have made a criminal inquiry to the Justice Department in order to seek a federal investigation. "Personally, I think she should basically say, 'Yeah, at this point, I have no secrets, you can look at the server, you can see what's there, I'll help you the best I can,'" Rattner replied.

 nObama presents a false dichotomy on Iran  
{Frederick W. Kagan} ~ President nObama and his supporters have done a terrific job of framing the debate over the Iran nuclear agreement as a choice between taking the deal or opting for war... They continually challenge critics to articulate an alternative to the deal, claiming that there isn’t one. This is a superb debating technique, and it has put critics on the defensive. But it is a false dichotomy. The choice might conceivably be between a deal and war, although that is by no means certain — the Cold War, after all, ended with neither a deal nor war. But the choice at hand is between accepting this deal now or continuing to press and negotiate for a better deal later. Many critics of this particular agreement, including me, believe that it would be far preferable to sign a good deal with Iran than to go to war with Iran — but also believe that this is a very bad deal indeed.       http://www.aei.org/publication/obama-presents-a-false-dichotomy-on-...

 LIMBAUGH MYSTIFIED: REPUBLICAN BEHAVIOR 'TOO WEIRD'  
{Joe Kovacs} ~ Rush Limbaugh, the top media voice for political conservatives, says recent behavior by Republican leadership is “too weird,” and he cannot explain why the GOP is refusing to oppose Democrats while at the same time targeting its own base... “We are all inundated by each other, every day, with e-mails, phone calls, texts, what have you, of utter incredulity over what’s happened to the Republican Party. It’s just too weird, folks,” Limbaugh said on his national broadcast Monday. “There just isn’t any serious opposition to anything that the Democrat Party wants.” “They’re not even going through the motions,” he complained. “They’re not even voicing phony opposition to Obama in order to placate the base. They’re actively targeting their own base. This is just too weird!”       http://www.wnd.com/2015/07/limbaugh-mystified-republican-behavior-t...

 Taxpayer-Funded Louisiana Co-Op Under nObamacare Has Collapsed 
{Melissa Quinn} ~ Just two years after nObamacare’s implementation, a Louisiana nonprofit insurer that received nearly $66 million in taxpayer-funded loans is closing its doors... On Friday, the Louisiana Department of Insurance announced that the state’s consumer operated and oriented plan, or co-op, would be discontinuing its operations at the end of 2015. Louisiana’s is the second co-op created under to nObamacare to close. According to the Department of Insurance, the Louisiana Health Cooperative will not be offering plans to consumers next year, but will continue its coverage of the 17,000 Louisiana consumers who are currently receiving health insurance through the co-op.        http://dailysignal.com/2015/07/27/the-taxpayer-funded-louisiana-co-...

 McCon-nell and dinky Reid may have just set a 51-vote threshold...  
{Timonthy P. Carney} ~ Next week, Senate Republicans could pass nObamacare repeal with a simple 51-vote majority as part of the long-term highway bill, according to Sen. Mike Lee... The Utah Republican laid out the argument in a press release after party leaders set the sequencing of votes: "The first nObamacare vote on Sunday will have a 60 vote threshold, and Democrats will likely block it," Lee continued. "But thanks to the sequencing of the votes we just locked in, Republicans will have the opportunity resurrect that nObamacare amendment later on in the process, and put it back before the Senate in a manner that only requires a simple-majority vote."         http://www.washingtonexaminer.com/mcconnell-and-reid-may-have-just-...

 What Iran Just Announced Proves They’re Planning for War...  
{Lt. Col. Allen West} ~ The fallout from President nObama’s ill-conceived agreement with Iran has begun... Over the weekend, the Ayatollah Khamenei sent a tweet showing nObama in silhouette with a gun to his head. The text was a blatant threat to the United States that it will be defeated if it engages Iran in combat. It’s clear the Iranian regime feels it has the high ground – especially while nObama was in Kenya being rebuffed for trying to lecture the Kenyan president about gay rights. For all intents and purposes, the international sanctions are over, and new markets will be flocking to Iran—especially oil markets. This means not only hundreds of billions of unfrozen assets for Iran, but also new revenue which will flow to the world’s largest sponsor of Islamic terrorism. And this while our Congress holds hearings and goes on recess in August, kinda like a particularly bad episode of “As the World Turns.” Our Congress, who must achieve supermajority levels of 67 senators and 291 representatives to avoid nObama’s promised veto, has pretty much been relegated to irrelevance due to nObama’s end-around actions with the UN. Even if they can achieve the votes to sink the Iranian agreement, America will only have the ability to levy its own sanctions against Iran. Way to go, you idiot.

 Iran: Nuke Deal Permits Cheating on Arms, Missiles  
{Adam Kredo} ~ Iran’s foreign minister and lead negotiator in nuclear talks said that under the terms of the recently inked accord, the Islamic Republic is permitted to violate current embargoes on the shipment of arms and construction of missiles... according to recent comments made before Iran’s parliament. Zarif, who spoke to the country’s parliament about the terms of the nuclear deal, also bragged that the finalization of the accord “puts the Zionist Regime in an irrecoverable danger,” according to an independent translation of his Persian language remarks provided to the Washington Free Beacon. Zarif insisted that “violating the arms and missiles embargo” placed on Iran by the United Nations “does not violate the nuclear agreement.” This is no deal, its a giveaway.
.
 The nObamacare Exchanges are Complete Failures  
{Mark Horne} ~ So if the nObamacare exchanges don’t work, why does anyone trust the government to deliver healthcare?... This blog reported on the failure of the nObamacare exchanges back in May. The situation is only getting worse. Now, the Associated Press has even admitted to it: “State nObamacare Exchanges Struggling With High Costs and Disappointing Enrollment.” So if the government is so wise and competent, how could they get it so wrong? They promised us it would all work and that we would be much better off with the state exchanges.       http://politicaloutcast.com/2015/07/the-obamacare-exchanges-are-com...

 nObama's Gamble with Iran's Theocratic Regime 
{Robert D. Onley} ~ As President nObama and Secretary hanoi Kerry dominated the airwaves with rounds of media interviews to defend the Iran deal last week, German Vice Chancellor and Economic Minister Sigmar Gabriel flew straight to Tehran... for the first of what are certain to be countless meetings by P5+1 leaders to capitalize on new business opportunities in Iran. In Europe, it seems, there is no debate to be had over the Iran deal; rather, it is a fait accompli. But in the United States, the domestic debate is heating up, fueled by a Presidential primary campaign and increasingly justified bipartisan anxiety over the bill. Independent of these political realities, however, the immediacy and tenacity of the White House's defense of the Iran deal (which now has its own @TheIranDeal Twitter account, no less), betrays an acute unspoken discomfort by many Democrats with the practical flaws and global security dangers that the deal presents.

Israel's 'Nasty' Habit of Bombing 
Nuke Programs Out Of Existence And Saving The World
Jeff Dunetz
.
.
     {yidwithlid.blogspot.com} ~ It's true, Israel has this "nasty" habit of preventing Nuclear War, or at the very least preventing tyrants from having the opportunity of using nuclear weapons against the United States or their own people. They bombed Iraq's program in 1981 and Syria's in 2007. And if they have to they will do it again.
.
     In 1981 the tiny nation of Israel executed a military plan which was roundly criticized across the world (including the United States). It was only with the hindsight of history that we can now say that Menachem Begin's decision to bomb an Iraqi nuclear reactor may have saved the world from a Sadaam Hussein with nuclear weapons. 
.
     Eight years ago we were told that SOMETHING happened in the Syrian desert. Israel was silent and Syria told a tale which changed more often than the IRS changes it's tune about the tea party targeting scandal.  First they said that the IAF dropped a fuel tank in the Syrian desert, then they bombed a strategic location, then they bombed a warehouse, then Syria said that there was NO Raid,  blamed the US for the attacks, and they finally said the IDF bombed nothing important, just a construction site. It turned out to be a nuclear reactor.
.
To do justice to both stories, we will break them up into two posts. Today Iraq
!
.
 
.
     In the late 1970s, Iraq purchased an "Osiris class" nuclear reactor from France (some things never change). Israeli military intelligence assumed this was for the purpose of plutonium production to further an Iraqi nuclear weapons program. Israeli intelligence also believed that the summer of 1981 would be the last chance to destroy the reactor without exposing the Iraqi civilian population to nuclear fallout. After that point, the reactor would be loaded with nuclear fuel.
.
     Just like Iran today, Iraq protested that its interest in nuclear energy was peaceful, at the time Iraq was a signatory to the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT), placing its reactors under International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) safeguards. Some experts remained unconvinced that the IAEA monitoring program was sufficient to guarantee that weapon research was not being conducted. They also claimed that an Osiris class reactor was not particularly useful to countries which have no established reactor programs, but that it was capable of producing plutonium. 
.
     Israel first pursued a diplomatic solution to the situation. The villain of the Temple Mount and Israel's foreign minister Moshe Dayan went to the United States for help. However, Israel failed to obtain assurances that the reactor program would be halted. In meetings with the Defense Secretary Casper Weinberger and Secretary of State Alexander Haig, there was agreement about the Israeli assessment regarding the Iraqi nuclear threat. American representatives even verified Israeli assessments that Iraq was working to reach nuclear capability and would exploit the ability to influence and destroy Israel. Despite the American consensus, the Americans refused to act, perhaps because they did not truly grasp the danger, or because they did not want to upset Iraq, then fighting America’s enemy, Iran.
.
Yitzchak Shamir, negotiated with French presidents Valery Giscard-D’Estaing and his successor François Mitterand. The French proved intransigent, looking out for their own economic interests as Iraq was by far their top customer for military hardware. The payments to France came mostly in the form of oil. According to Shamir, French Minister for Foreign Affairs Claude Cheysson told him that there were only two major Arab powers: Iraq and the PLO. Despite Shamir’s personal affinity toward the French, as they had sheltered him while he was a member of the pre-state uprising against the British occupation of Israel, he was extremely disappointed when he realized that France was unwilling to cooperate and prevent Saddam Hussein’s Iraq from becoming a nuclear state, despite urgent and emotional pleas by the Israelis that Iraq was preparing a nuclear holocaust against Israel and the Jewish people. (source Yitzhak Shamir, “The Failure of Diplomacy,” Israel’s Strike Against the Iraqi Nuclear Reactor 7 June, 1981, Jerusalem: Menachem Begin Heritage Center: 2003, 13-14.)
.
.
.
    Just like today with Iran there were political considerations, but this time the politics were in Israel:
.
According to Moshe Nissim, it was the need to contend with the danger of an atom bomb in the hands of a dangerous and irresponsible Arab ruler who would not hesitate to use it against Israel that convinced Begin of the urgency and necessity to destroy the Iraqi reactor. In addition, Begin knew the Likud had a chance of losing the upcoming elections. If Labor, led by Shimon Peres, came into power, Begin feared the plans to prevent Iraq from obtaining a nuclear arsenal would be shelved. Begin, however, was not about to let Israel’s security be weakened due to election consideration (Moshe Nissim, “Leadership and Daring in the Destruction of the Israeli Reactor,” Israel’s Strike Against the Iraqi Nuclear Reactor 7 June, 1981, Jerusalem: Menachem Begin Heritage Center: 2003, 21)
.
.
As the IDF reported it:
.
     4 pm, the evening before the Shavout holiday, 1981, orders were given to begin operations. At 5:35.a squadron of IAF F-16 fighter aircraft flew over Iraqi skies and dropped a number of bombs. The nuclear reactor was completely destroyed. Mission accomplished. One after another, the pilots shouted the code word "Alpha" into their radios, signaling their success. Zev Raz, Amus Yadlin, Chagi katz, Amir Nahumi, Yiftach Spector, Yisraeli Shapir, and Ilan Ramon- changed history, erasing the nuclear threat of the enemy.
.
     Iraq established a nuclear program in the 60's and with the cooperation of the USSR built a nuclear reactor ten km's southeast of Baghdad. 16 years later, Iraq began to broaden their nuclear programs and were supported by France who provided them with a nuclear reactor. The reactor consisted of two buildings, the "Tamuz" 1- the first reactor that produced uranium, and the "Tamuz" 2. The Israeli government convened to discuss the growing nuclear threat in that region. Israel was doubtful about Iraq's claims that the nuclear program was for the benefit of its citizens. Their doubt increased when the IDF Intelligence Branch published intelligence reports that Iraq's operations posed a real threat to Israel's very existence- and Israel was forced to draw up plans to destroy the reactor.
.
.
     On the 14th of May,  Prime Minister  Menachem Begin, authorized the bombing of the nuclear reactor. Ezer Wiezmen, the then Defense Minister, opposed the operation and resigned from the government two weeks later. 
.
During a cabinet meeting the plan was formally authorized by Begin.
.
     "A large clock is hanging over us, ticking. Iraq's intent to produce nuclear weapons poses a great danger to every man woman and child in the state of Israel", the prime minister remarked. 
.
     The plan was kept in complete secrecy. From the get-go it was understood that the most effective way to implement a successful mission would be one conducted by the Israeli Air Force. It was decided that the operations would be done by F-16 fighter aircrafts that the IAF had received the year before. An Israeli Air Force squadron of 8 F-16's heavily armed, as well as a number of F-15's providing air cover and fighter support would implement the mission. One of the primary focuses during the planning stage was which direction the planes would fly. (11,000 km each way), over hostile territory and with a limited supply of fuel dictated the flight path. The plan was set for the seventh of July, zero hour-30 minutes before sunset.
.
.
"We flew over the Tigris river, looking down we saw the nuclear reactor. Our target lay before us clear as day." .
     The pilots that participated in the mission were selected for their impeccable flight records and were trained in secret and requested to implement the operations with no second thoughts. In the afternoon hours of the 6th of June, the plan was set in motion. All the members of F-16 squadron were called up for duty. On the morning of June 7th, 1981 8 F-16 fighter aircraft left Israeli airspace heading west towards the Tigris River, next to Baghdad. The flight to Iraq took upwards to an hour. Radio transmission was silenced. The Iraqis were caught completely off guard. The Iraqi radar system was incapable of picking up on the impending danger.
.      Major General Amus Yaldun, one of the eight combat pilots that participated in the mission and now head of the IDF Intelligence Branch, related, during an interview with IAF journalists, about the famous flight. "Each aircraft flew with three full tanks of gas, two air to air missiles and two bombs each weighing one ton. We flew in two groups of four. The first group was led by Colonel (res.) Zev Raz, the "First Jet" squadron leader, and the second group was lead by Brigadier General (res.)Amir Nehomi, commander of the "Northern Knights". I was number two in the first quadroon. We headed south of the Jordon River, passing over the Saudi desert. We reached the Tigris River in a short amount of time.
.
     The blast of the first bombs echoed in the distance. One of them hit the center of the reactors roof. Once the bombs were releases, I felt the impact of the explosions shaking my plane. This was the end of the Iraqi nuclear reactor "Tamuz" 1." The Israeli planes made a roundabout turn west, heading home. "The direction home was facing the sun as to prevent the enemy from following us. We received report of the second squadron's attack on the reactor.
.
.
We felt great. A- Because of completing the mission and B- Because all of us, the whole squadron, had come home in peace."At the time, the attack was widely criticized. Israel responded that its actions were self-defensive and thus justifiable under Article 51 of the United Nations Charter. Critics rejected the idea of "pre-emptive self-defense". France, in particular (again no surprise), was outraged over the loss of a French national as a result of the attack, and since the raid diplomatic ties between France and Israel have remained strained. The United Nations Security Council passed Resolution 487, calling upon Israel "to place its nuclear facilities under IAEA safeguards", and stated that Iraq was "entitled to appropriate redress for the destruction it suffered". Israel has not complied with these requests. The United States supported the resolution condemning the Israeli action — not the country as other nations tried to do. Their course of action was to withhold a contingent of aircraft already promised to Israel
.
     Files released by the British National Archives in 2011 show that Britain's ambassador to Washington, Sir Nicholas Henderson, was with US Defense Secretary Caspar Weinberger as the news came of the bombing came in:
.
"Weinberger says that he thinks Begin must have taken leave of his senses. He is much disturbed by the Israeli reaction and possible consequences," Sir Nicholas cabled London.
.
Britain's ambassador in Baghdad, Sir Stephen Egerton, disclosed that the Iraqis had been just as surprised when the Israeli F15 fighters appeared in their skies.
.
"The diplomatic corps had a ringside view of the belated ack-ack and missile reactions to the raid when we were gathered for the Italian national day reception on the Bund [waterside]," he wrote
.
     Of course the UN General Assembly passed a resolution trashing Israel for saving herself.  
.
     Over twenty years later when the world began to face a terrorist threat as never before the world began to realize the service performed by Israel, the IAF and Menachem Begin.
.
     Just imagine a world with Iraq or, God Forbid, a terrorist with their hands on a nuclear weapon. If it wasn't for Menachem Begin, a Prime Minister with guts to give the orders to protect Israel, knowing (but not caring) that a world would absolutely freak, and the heroes of the IDF who flawlessly performed their mission, this scary world have happened already.For those who are still questioning PM Netanyhu's reaction to Barack nObama's P5+1 deal, remember what happened thirty-four years ago, and understand that Israel will do anything it takes, no matter what the world thinks, to defend herself. And if they do, eventually the world will say thank you. But it really doesn't matter.

ALERT ALERT

TRUMP ->  WHY DOES ANTIFA NEVER ATTACK BIKERS FOR TRUMP?

President insults leftists during social media summit

The president made reference to the Antifa attack on gay Asian journalist Andy Ngo in Portland last month.

“Do you ever notice they pick on certain people?” asked Trump.

Embedded video
Michael Sheridan@MSH3RIDAN

"Did you ever notice they don't come after Bikers For  Trump?"@realDonaldTrump calls out ANTIFA for the wussies that they are.

“He would tell you he’s not the toughest person physically in the world – they don’t go after Bikers For Trump, you ever notice that, they don’t go after our construction workers who love us, they don’t go after the police,” he added.

Trump went on to further insult far-leftists, joking, “They live in the basement of their mom’s home,” while asserting that they all had skinny arms.

“But they have the black masks on and they have sticks, they hit people in the face, in the head.”

“But you ever notice Antifa’s never there when we have a bikers rally….they’re never around, they’re always there when you have a single guy protesting in front of a school,” said Trump.

Trump then made reference to his administration’s move to withdraw federal funding from educational institutions that don’t allow free speech on campus.
