ISIS attacks Iran…

leave a comment »

Am I sorry ISIS  has attacked  the Iranian parliament?   Not one bit.   Am I surprised?   Not in the least.  The jihadis wish to bring about the return of the 12th Imam or al Mahdi.  That’s why you hear some people speaking of the effort to immanentize the eschaton.   Radical Islamists will generally admit only that they seek to bring about the final,  heaven-like stage of history,  without mentioning that in this perfect world,  their ideology will reign supreme and you hideous infidels will be either dead or enslaved.

Therefore,  causing  chaos everywhere  is part of the means of achieving their goal.   They don’t care that  they might  start World War III with nukes and such, because everyone is going to die anyway and only the truly righteous will be brought back.

UPDATE:  Iran claims the Saudis are to blame and  vows retaliation.

Media bias writ large…

leave a comment »

ABC,  CBS and NBC on Monday and Tuesday found plenty of time to drool over the return of His Oneness to public speaking,  but devoted not one millisecond to  Politico senior investigative reporter Josh Meyer’s alarming discovery  Obama released three times the number of Iranians originally claimed, and that most of them were being held for far more serious crimes than claimed.   It was,  as is so often the case,  left to FOX News to feature Meyer.

Ransom refund legislation…

leave a comment »

Marco Rubio is  introducing legislation  to recoup a $1.7 billion settlement from Iran,  including the $400 million shipped on a cargo plane in cash at the time of the release of five U.S. hostages.   It won’t go anywhere,  of course,   but it’s a fine way to highlight the lies and lawlessness and general incompetence and ineptitude of the Obama Administration,  which couldn’t negotiate its way out of a wet paper bag with instructions printed on the inside.

Blood oil…

Iran is exporting its  first oil  shipment to Europe since His Oneness used the same idiotic negotiators Bill Clinton did with North Korea.

His Oneness and Secretary of Stupidity Kerry are ever so pleased with the same lousy results.

Nauseating…

leave a comment »

Here are  thumbnail bios  on the four U.S. prisoners Iran released in exchange for seven Iranians being held on charges of violating sanctions or export control violations.

Not included  was former  F.B.I. agent,  Robert Levinson,  whose whereabouts are currently unknown.   A  recently retained  American student was also released.

What a coincidence this occurred on the same day  economic sanctions against Iran were lifted.   The U.N. Atomic Agency  has certified  that Iran has met all his commitments under the deal.   I haven’t been able to find a transcript of Secretary of State John Kerry’s fulsome praise for the insane Iran deal, but the gist of his comments  are here.

I am still waiting for someone  — anyone — to tell me how there can be an Iran deal when Iran has not signed it yet.   The Obama Administration is stuffed full of lawyers,  including His Oneness himself,  yet none of them apparently grasp a fundamental tenet of contract law,  which is that no agreement exists until all parties have executed it.

Paragraph 36…

leave a comment »

Once again I must point out that His Oneness, Sec. Moniz and Sec. Kerry could not negotiate their way out of a wet paper bag with instructions printed on the inside.   They did not negotiate with Iran  —  they surrendered,  abjectly,  embarrassingly.

The aforementioned paragraph  basically says  Iran can say one of the parties isn’t behaving properly,  wait 35 days,  claim to be unsatisfied,  then terminate the agreement.   It is a beautiful exit strategy.  The translation is:   The stupid USA is paying us to acquire nuclear tactical weapons and conventional weapons which we will use to destroy Israel,  then the USA,  then take over the world.

I’ll get to some of the other goodies contained in that treasonous document,  but at least you know know when the final clock begins ticking.
