Frontpage Magazine has published a bombshell report that has been met with total silence by the media.  Daniel Greenfield’s piece is entitled “Traitor Senators Took Money from Iran Lobby, Back Iran Nukes.”

Our politicians bought by Iran include not just a list of senators and congressmen about to vote on the Iran deal.  Recipients of Iran’s largess for their campaigns include President Obama, Joe Biden, John Kerry, and Hillary Clinton.

Both of Obama’s secretaries of state were involved in Iran Lobby cash controversies, as was his vice president and his former secretary of defense. Obama was also the beneficiary of sizable donations from the Iran Lobby. Read More..

Watchdog Says EPA Not Vetting Job Candidates

Posted on August 28th, 2015

US EPA LogoEDITOR’S COMMENT: I’m guessing that the EPA’s plan here is to enable them to hire as many environmental zealots and unqualified activists as they can, while the Obama administration is still in charge. Just think of the havoc that these radical fanatics can cause, particularly when the agency’s leadership has been shown to ‘ignore’ some of the existing laws.

By Kathryn Watson

The Environmental Protection Agency will hire up to 800 people by the end of summer, so it might concern taxpayers to know that EPA officials don’t thoroughly vet job candidates.

EPA hiring heads didn’t verify employment history or references of any new employees scrutinized by the EPA Office of Inspector General, according to a report released Monday. IG investigators reviewed 25 new-hire files, “none” of which “contained documentation that prior employment or references were verified,” the IG report said.

Perhaps even more problematic, the IG said, is the EPA’s own human resources bulletin doesn’t require staff to run reference or employment history checks. Read More..

The Next Big Civil Right: Living On The Street

Posted on August 28th, 2015

Homelessness NickelsvilleBy Betsy McCaughey

America’s homeless are lawyering up to fight for a “right” to live on the street, your neighborhood and personal safety be damned.

From Fort Lauderdale to Denver to Los Angeles, cities are struggling with a surge in people living in cardboard boxes and doorways. Local lawmakers are trying to ban “camping out” in public spaces and ordering police to clear the fetid encampments.

But lawyers for the homeless are pushing back. They’re demanding that “sleeping rough” be legally protected. In Denver, where living on the street is outlawed, lawyers for the homeless want the law changed to guarantee vagrants “the right to use and move freely in public spaces without discrimination.”

Outrageously, the Obama administration is siding with the vagrants against local governments. This month, Obama’s Justice Department is trying to block Boise, Idaho’s ban on sleeping in public spaces. Cities around the country are worried that their own laws may be next. Read More..

IAEA Says It’s Running Out of Money to Monitor Iran

Posted on August 27th, 2015

WAIMH Red ArrowEDITOR’S COMMENT: Sounds about right! Let’s see. The Security Council of the UN approved the basic agreement, when asked by President Obama, as he went around Congress, but none of these geniuses checked to see if the funding was in place to carry out the vital required inspections and monitoring. Also, why does it always seem that the American taxpayer is saddled with these extra financial burdens. Iran is about to receive the benefit of $159 billion in restricted finds, and no one at the State Department thought to include this financing as part of their negotiations?

By Adelle Nazarian

The world’s nuclear watch dog, the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA), says it is strapped for cash and needs at least $10 million to carry out the critical monitoring required of them in the Iranian nuclear deal.

“The Agency has immediate funding needs related to the continuing costs of implementing monitoring and verification under the existing Joint Plan of Action,” Yukiya Amano, director general of the IAEA, said in remarks presented to the agency’s Board of Directors this week.

“These total $800,000 euros per month. The extra-budgetary contributions which we have previously received for this purpose will be exhausted by the end of September,” Amano said.

In response to the IAEA’s financial woes, the United States’ mission in Vienna reportedly said on Tuesday that it would make sure the agency has enough money to report on Iran’s past, present, and future nuclear programs. Read More..

Almost 200 Retired Generals, Admirals Tell Congress: Vote Down the Iran Deal

Posted on August 27th, 2015

Money for Iran from # 167170By Jason Devaney

Nearly 200 retired U.S. military generals and admirals sent a letter to Congressional leaders Wednesday, asking them to vote down the Iran nuclear deal.

According to The Washington Post, which obtained a copy of the letter, many of the signees have worked in the White House going back three decades.

The letter was addressed to House Speaker John Boehner, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, and Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid.

“As you know, on July 14, 2015, the United States and five other nations announced that a Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) has been reached with Iran to prevent it from developing nuclear weapons,” the letter reads.

“In our judgment as former senior military officers, the agreement will not have that effect. Removing sanctions on Iran and releasing billions of dollars to its regime over the next ten years is inimical to the security of Israel and the Middle East. There is no credibility within JCPOA’s inspection process or the ability to snap back sanctions once lifted, should Iran violate the agreement. In this and other respects, the JCPOA would threaten the national security and vital interests of the United States and, therefore, should be disapproved by the Congress.

How Obama Transformed America

Posted on August 27th, 2015

Obama yelling, speakingBy Phil Gramm

His progressive legacy won’t last because he passed vague laws and abused his executive power to impose policies that are unpopular.

How did Barack Obama join Franklin Roosevelt and Ronald Reagan to become one of the three most transformative presidents in the past century? He was greatly aided by the financial crisis that erupted during the 2008 campaign. This gave the new president a mandate and a large Democratic congressional majority that fully embraced his progressive agenda.

Having learned from previous progressive failures, President Obama embarked on a strategy of minimizing controversial details that could doom his legislative efforts. But no factor was more decisive than his unshakable determination not to let Congress, the courts, the Constitution or a failed presidency—as America has traditionally defined it—stand in his way.

Americans have always found progressivism appealing in the abstract, but they have revolted when they saw the details. Read More..

Howard Beale Politics

Posted on August 26th, 2015

Mad as HellBy Monty Pelerin

The early response to Republican and Democrat candidates suggests that there might be an overthrow of the old political order under way. The electorate seems to be having a Howard Beale moment (see explanation below). As a long-time observer of politics and its corruption, I certainly hope that is what is happening.

The public seems outraged, tired of being ignored. The early popularity of outsiders: Trump, Sanders, Carson, Fiorina and,to some extent, Cruz reflect the dissatisfaction. Bush and Walker, the original favorites, have dropped substantially. Hillary is being threatened by a Socialist, Bernie Sanders. Anyone seen as part of the establishment is being punished at least at this early jockeying stage. Whether this is an early season anomaly or whether it is a sign of a turn against professional politicians remains to be seen.

Howard Beale

Politics is going through its Howard Beale moment. Mr. Beale was the newscaster in Network played by Peter Finch:

I don’t have to tell you things are bad. Everybody knows things are bad. It’s a depression. Everybody’s out of work or scared of losing their job. The dollar buys a nickel’s worth, banks are going bust, shopkeepers keep a gun under the counter. Punks are running wild in the street and there’s nobody anywhere who seems to know what to do, and there’s no end to it. We know the air is unfit to breathe and our food is unfit to eat, and we sit watching our TV’s while some local newscaster tells us that today we had fifteen homicides and sixty-three violent crimes, as if that’s the way it’s supposed to be. We know things are bad – worse than bad. They’re crazy.

… All I know is, you’ve got to get mad. You’ve got to say, “I’m a human being, goddamn it. My life has value.

… I’m as mad as hell, and I’m not going to take this anymore. Read More..

Clinton Email Probe Needs Special Prosecutor

Posted on August 26th, 2015

Hillary Detour emails investigation from # 167271By The Detroit News

With Hillary Clinton running for president, it is hard to keep separate legitimate questions about whether her unorthodox email practices while secretary of state compromised national security from the partisan mud-slinging that comes with a political campaign.

Likewise, as the likely Democratic standard-bearer and former cabinet officer in the Obama administration, it is a stretch to assume the Justice Department will do a vigorous and impartial investigation into the email controversy and be entirely forthcoming with the results.

For the sake of everyone’s credibility, a special prosecutor should be appointed with the tools to quickly answer the questions before the presidential primaries begin.

That’s not a lot of time. The urgency of getting to the bottom of this argues for the tools a special prosecutor can bring to a probe.

Despite Clinton’s insistence that she did nothing out of the ordinary, a federal judge ruled in a Freedom of Information Act case Friday that she had violated government policy by storing official messages on a private server. He ordered the State Department to work with the FBI, which is probing whether national security has been compromised. Read More..
