Poor Nations Want U.S. to Pay Reparations for Extreme Weather

Posted on September 14th, 2015

Snowed in global warming from www.caglecartoons.com # 160332EDITOR’S COMMENT: This is precisely what global warming and climate change are all about. The real goal is not to protect the environment, but a combination of seizing wealth and power. Unfortunately, President Obama and the United Nations are spearheading this ‘Robin Hood’ approach, and this effort will be discussed extensively at the upcoming United Nations Conference on Climate Change in December. What’s amazing to me is that there is absolutely no scientific proof that man-made global warming has caused any of these problems. The poor countries were very poor and experienced many of these natural devastating effects long before the elites even conceived of global warming. As further evidence of this absurdity, if one reads the UN’s comments, it is interesting that one of the biggest emission generators, China, is not even mentioned as being a target of these negotiations. Why? Because it is not about the environment!

Poorer nations suffering from extreme weather disasters, so much so that their citizens are seeking refugee in safer terrains outside their borders, want rich nations like the United States to pay for reparations and to relocate populations.

Preparatory talks ahead of the United Nations Conference on Climate Change to be held in Paris in December has representatives from developing nations asking for more than an already agreed upon $100 billion per year for climate change mitigation measures. They want additional compensation for weather-related disasters as well as a “displacement coordination facility” for refugees. And they want all this to be legally binding as part of the larger anticipated Paris accord.

The U.S. and wealthier nations in the European Union are balking. Read More..

America Will Pay the Price for Obama’s Iran Deal ‘Victory’

Posted on September 14th, 2015

Nobel intentions Obama Iran legacy from www.caglecartoons.com # 168364By Michael Goodwin

The word “disconnect” is the appropriate way to describe the chasm between America’s government and its citizens. We all have our favorite examples, but none can match the events of last week.

On the eve of the 14th anniversary of the worst attack ever against our nation, President Obama celebrated a nuclear pact with Iran, an Islamic theocracy whose leader calls the United States “Satan” and joins crowds in chanting “Death to America.”

A mere 21 percent of the American public supports the deal and a bipartisan majority of the Senate opposes it. Yet the filibuster rule blocked the Senate from defeating it, allowing Obama to hail the “historic step forward.”

His “victory” is a disconnect that will live in infamy.

The deal is essentially a nonaggression pact with Iran, a form of appeasement that renders unfair any further comparisons to Neville Chamberlain. At least Hitler promised peace at the 1938 Munich conference after the British leader engineered a German annexation of parts of Czechoslovakia.

Iran’s supreme leader doesn’t bother to pretend he wants peace. On the contrary, he vows that the nuclear agreement will have zero impact on the policies of the world’s largest state sponsor of terrorism. Read More..

50 US Spies “Revolt” Exposing How Their Reports Are Cooked to Manipulate the Public about ISIS

Posted on September 11th, 2015

Why Wasn’t I Warned Obama ISIS from www.caglecartoons.com # 154396EDITOR’S COMMENT: Frankly, while this “revolt” is rather shocking, we really shouldn’t be that surprised, based upon President Obama’s past and current efforts to spin every detail to his advantage. If that can’t be done, then the issue is conveniently overlooked with the aid of his adoring media, or he will comment that he is not familiar with the relevant issue. Just always remember that almost everything spoken by this administration is either an exaggeration, a falsehood, or a lie. And, now we see that our supposedly independent military has also been infected with this effort to mislead by “cherry-picking” our intelligence reports!

By Jay Syrmopoulos

More than 50 U.S. military intelligence analysts operating out of U.S. Central Command (CENTCOM) have staged what has been called a ‘revolt’ by intelligence professionals. The revolt comes after announcing that their intelligence reports were being altered and manipulated to fit the public narrative that the U.S. is winning the battle against ISIS.

The analysts are assigned to U.S. CENTCOM, but are officially employed by the Defense Intelligence Agency, the intelligence branch of the Pentagon.

“The cancer was within the senior level of the intelligence command,” one defense official told The Daily Beast.

The disturbing revelations came after more than 50 intelligence analysts filed formal complaints, causing the Pentagon’s inspector general to open an investigation into the matter.

According to the report by The Daily Beast:

Two senior analysts at CENTCOM signed a written complaint sent to the Defense Department inspector general in July alleging that the reports, some of which were briefed to President Obama, portrayed the terror groups as weaker than the analysts believe they are. The reports were changed by CENTCOM higher-ups to adhere to the administration’s public line that the U.S. is winning the battle against ISIS and al Nusra, al Qaeda’s branch in Syria, the analysts claim.

Why There Is Still Time to Demand a Better Iran Deal

Posted on September 10th, 2015

Obama’s Nuke deal campaign from www.caglecartoons.com # 167367By Rachel Zissimos

As Congress’ September deadline to approve or condemn the Iran deal approaches, the Obama administration has intensified its lobbying efforts, appealing to individual members of Congress who remain on the fence.

Last Friday, President Obama drafted a letter to Rep. Jerrold Nadler D-N.Y., defending what he calls “a very good deal for the United States” that will eliminate all pathways to a nuclear weapon, facilitate the full or partial “snapback” of sanctions, and ensure “tremendous oversight.”

Nadler announced his support of the deal later that day, albeit with little enthusiasm. He assessed the deal as “far from perfect, to put it mildly.” Nadler is not the only politician to have voiced support of the deal begrudgingly.

The administration has accused Republicans of lining up to oppose the deal before it was even released. However, blaming concerns on party bias dismisses legitimate criticisms that span both sides of the aisle. Read More..

Wake Up, Obama, Climate Change Has Been Happening Forever

Posted on September 9th, 2015

Climate changingBy Betsy McCaughey

President Obama hiked to Exit Glacier in Alaska last week, with photographers in tow, to send the world a message: The glacier is melting.

Obama blames it on the increasing use of fossil fuels such as coal, oil and natural gas, which he wants to restrict not only in the United States but worldwide. The photo op was designed to build support for an international climate agreement he’s pushing hard to sell, so far with little success.

Trouble is, the president needs to get his facts straight. Exit Glacier has been shrinking for 200 years — since 1815 — long before widespread industrialization and automobiles. As the president ended his trip, he sounded the alarm again: “This state’s climate is changing before our eyes.”

News flash, Mr. President: Alaska has been buffeted by cyclical swings in climate for thousands of years. That’s true for the rest of the world, too. There was a 300-year-long Medieval heat wave, followed by a Little Ice Age that began around 1300, and then the 300-year warming period we’re in now. Read More..

Guess How Many Refugees the Rich Gulf States Have Taken In?

Posted on September 8th, 2015

Saudi Arabia and refugees from www.caglecartoons.com # 168448By Rick Moran

The refugee crisis continues to haunt the countries of the European Union as tens of thousands of desperate people try to escape war, famine, and chaos in their home countries try to reach the wealthy democracies of Europe.

Germany plans to take in 800,000 refugees this year with other EU countries being urged to take in a bigger share. But one group of nations that would, on the surface, appear to be an ideal destination for the refugees has held back giving any support to the migrants. They are rich, they are Muslim, but they have closed their doors to the crisis.

In fact, the Arab Gulf States have yet to take in a single refugee. You read that right; zero migrants taken in by the fabulously wealthy autocratic monarchies of the Persian Gulf.

Washington Post:

Some European countries have been criticized for offering sanctuary only to a small number of refugees, or for discriminating between Muslims and Christians. There’s also been a good deal of continental hand-wringing over the general dysfunction of Europe’s systems for migration and asylum.

Less ire, though, has been directed at another set of stakeholders who almost certainly should be doing more: Saudi Arabia and the wealthy Arab states along the Persian Gulf.

As Amnesty International recently pointed out, the “six Gulf countries — Qatar, United Arab Emirates, Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, Oman and Bahrain — have offered zero resettlement places to Syrian refugees.”  Read More..

Is Anything Hillary Has Said about Her Private Emails True?

Posted on September 4th, 2015

Hillary and Trust from www.caglecartoons.com # 167347By The Wall Street Journal

Hillary Clinton has tried to confuse the public about the definition of “classified,” but some in the press corps are cutting though the fog. We’re learning, in particular, that Mrs. Clinton’s self-serving decision to use a private email server for official communications may have resulted in far greater mishandling of classified information.

The Washington Post reported Wednesday that Mrs. Clinton wrote and sent on her private server at least six emails that contained classified information. This destroys Mrs. Clinton’s statement that she never sent any classified information. It also blows up her campaign’s diversionary argument that nothing she sent or received was “marked” as classified.

Mrs. Clinton was Secretary of State, with greater knowledge than anyone in her operation about national security secrets, and with a duty to protect such information. Whether the classified material she was sending or receiving was marked as such makes no difference to an official’s obligation. Mrs. Clinton knew this. Read More..

Liberal Study Unintentionally Reveals Nationwide Illegal Alien Crime Spree

Posted on September 4th, 2015

At His Feet And On His Hands, Obama, Sanctuary City

By Julian Hahn

Nearly 1m illegals now in USA convicted of additional crimes.

A report issued by the liberal Migration Policy Institute (MPI) further shreds Chuck Todd’s assertion on NBC’s “Meet The Press” that he and his staff, “couldn’t find a single study that links violent crime and immigration.”

Tucked inside a report about President Obama’s new amnesty is the estimation from this liberal think tank there are 820,000 illegal aliens in the United States with criminal convictions, including 690,000 illegal aliens currently residing on U.S. soil who have been convicted of a felony or “serious” misdemeanor.

The 820,000 figure is not an estimation of total crimes committed by illegal immigrants—which would be a much higher number—but only those illegal aliens successfully identified, arrested, tried, and convicted.

Combined with other statistical data points, however, the 820,000 figure gives us a way to examine the scope of total illegal alien crime. Even conservative assumptions produce harrowing conclusions, and demonstrate that there are likely millions of American victims of illegal alien predators. Read More..

Obama’s Obscene Drive to Avoid Any Senate Vote on the Iran Deal

Posted on September 3rd, 2015

Dealing from behind imageEDITOR’S COMMENT: What is the Republican establishment leadership waiting for? Or, are McConnell and Boehner simply going to give Obama what he wants, as they have so often done in the recent past. If any vote in congress requires changing the rules on ‘filibuster’, this one is it!

By The New York Post

Whether to approve the disastrous nuclear deal with Iran is the most important question to face Congress in years — yet the president wants to stop the Senate from even debating it.

He’s pushing Democrats to use the filibuster rule to stop the question from making it to the Senate floor — and Minority Leader Harry Reid’s rallying the votes to do it.

Of course, President Obama never wanted Congress to have a say here. But Congress voted itself an oversight role anyway — by 98-1 in the Senate.

Now Reid’s rounding up Democrats to derail the process they helped set up to “ensure the American people — through their elected representatives — a voice on any deal with Iran.” Read More..

Latest Emails Reveal the End of Hillary’s Claim to Be a Friend of Israel

Posted on September 3rd, 2015

Clinton ratings polls from www.caglecartoons.com # 167732By Thomas Lifson

Over the decades, Hillary Clinton and her husband have posed as friends of Israel, and not so incidentally collected a lot of money from Jewish donors. The latest tranche of emails released by the State Department blow apart any pretense that Hillary is friendly to the Jewish state. Her reliance on Sidney Blumenthal as an advisor, despite the fact that she was forbidden by the Obama administration to employ him as a State Department aide, is now revealed to contain a reliance on the even viler son of a vile man. Jonathan Tobin of Commentary explains:

 [W]hat wasn’t clear until today was the extent to which the person whom she has publicly described as a close personal friend was counseling her to distance herself from pro-Israel groups and filling up her email account with anti-Zionist and other left-wing screeds by his son Max that she had printed out for further reading. The Blumenthal-Clinton correspondence is notable for many reasons but principally because it gives us a window into the sorts of conversations that would go on inside a Hillary Clinton White House.

The topic about which Blumenthal seemed to have the most passion was his attempt to steer Clinton away from the sort of pro-Israel stands that she had established while in the Senate. Blumenthal urged her to give “tough love” to Israel. That’s a nice way of saying that he wanted her to lecture and threaten it to bow to Obama administration dictates even if they undermined the alliance between the two countries and Israel’s security.

As he said in one email about a speech she was scheduled to give to an AIPAC conference, he wanted her to: “remind it in as subtle but also direct a way as you can that it does not have a monopoly over American Jewish opinion.”

Just as telling is the way he plied her with his son Max’s articles. Max Blumenthal is a radical left wing writer and the author of Goliath, a vicious anti-Zionist polemic that attacks Israel’s right to exist and urges its isolation and ultimate dissolution. Read More..
