EU Diplomat: My Government ‘Believes Obama Is Quite Mentally Unwell’

DID YOU KNOW? red Rubber Stamp over a white background. BasicBy Steve Watson

A former NSA intelligence analyst has claimed that a senior European diplomat told him that the entire government of a European country considers president Obama to be literally mentally unwell.

John Schindler, a security expert and whistleblower who now writes for The Daily Beast, has claimed that a senior EU official from an undisclosed country also inquired about impeachment proceedings, saying that the nation believes Obama is not fit for office.

The wording indicates that the opinion is not that of a single person, but rather the whole government of whichever European country the diplomat is from.

The following countries make up the European Union:

Austria, Belgium, Bulgaria, Cyprus, Croatia, Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Ireland, Italy, Latvia, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Malta, Netherlands, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden and the United Kingdom.

According to Schindler’s source, one of the governments of those nations considers Obama to be mentally unstable.    (my emphasis) Read More..

Obama Will Be the Only Person Sticking to Iran Deal

Posted on October 13th, 2015

Tick Tock Iran DealBy Amir Taheri

Sometime this week, President Obama is scheduled to sign an executive order to meet the Oct. 15 “adoption day” he has set for the nuclear deal he says he has made with Iran. According to the president’s timetable the next step would be “the start day of implementation,” fixed for Dec. 15.

But as things now stand, Obama may end up being the only person in the world to sign his much-wanted deal, in effect making a treaty with himself.

The Iranians have signed nothing and have no plans for doing so. The so-called Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) has not even been discussed at the Islamic Republic’s Council of Ministers. Nor has the Tehran government bothered to even provide an official Persian translation of the 159-page text.

“Obama won’t do anything that might jeopardize the deal,” says Ziba Kalam, a Rouhani adviser. “This is his biggest, if not the only, foreign policy success.”

Nor have Britain, China, Germany, France and Russia, who were involved in the so-called P5+1 talks that produced the JCPOA, deemed it necessary to provide the Obama “deal” with any legal basis of their own. Obama’s partners have simply decided that the deal he is promoting is really about lifting sanctions against Iran and nothing else.

The Obama deal may end up as the biggest diplomatic scam in recent history. Read More..

Pleasant Surprise! U.S. Officials Conclude Iran Deal Violates Federal Law

Posted on October 9th, 2015

Iran deal survives Republican attacks Obama from www.caglecartoons.com # 168776By James Rosen

Some senior U.S. officials involved in the implementation of the Iran nuclear deal have privately concluded that a key sanctions relief provision – a concession to Iran that will open the doors to tens of billions of dollars in U.S.-backed commerce with the Islamic regime – conflicts with existing federal statutes and cannot be implemented without violating those laws, Fox News has learned.

At issue is a passage tucked away in ancillary paperwork attached to the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action, or JCPOA, as the Iran nuclear deal is formally known. Specifically, Section 5.1.2 of Annex II provides that in exchange for Iranian compliance with the terms of the deal, the U.S. “shall…license non-U.S. entities that are owned or controlled by a U.S. person to engage in activities with Iran that are consistent with this JCPOA.”

In short, this means that foreign subsidiaries of U.S. parent companies will, under certain conditions, be allowed to do business with Iran. The problem is that the Iran Threat Reduction and Syria Human Rights Act (ITRA), signed into law by President Obama in August 2012, was explicit in closing the so-called “foreign sub” loophole.

Indeed, ITRA also stipulated, in Section 218, that when it comes to doing business with Iran, foreign subsidiaries of U.S. parent firms shall in all cases be treated exactly the same as U.S. firms: namely, what is prohibited for U.S. parent firms has to be prohibited for foreign subsidiaries, and what is allowed for foreign subsidiaries has to be allowed for U.S. parent firms.

What’s more, ITRA contains language, in Section 605, requiring that the terms spelled out in Section 218 shall remain in effect until the president of the United States certifies two things to Congress: first, that Iran has been removed from the State Department’s list of nations that sponsor terrorism, and second, that Iran has ceased the pursuit, acquisition, and development of weapons of mass destruction.

Obama Needs to Stop Talking Trash

Posted on October 9th, 2015

Putin Syria Bully Obama Kerry from www.caglecartoons.com  # 169515By Mike Ford

In an article in Politico on October 2 titled, “Obama’s Trash Talk,” Edward-Isaac Dovere writes regarding President Obama’s statements at that day’s press conference:

“Putin, meanwhile, is just a liar,” Obama said, “a silly, weakened, ridiculous liar, as anyone could see.” Obama smacked away statements the Russian president made in public and in private in their Monday sitdown. He even did a double shot of mine’s-bigger-than-yours, tearing into the size and growth of the Russian economy and noting with pleasure that though Putin seemed confident in his America-bashing, Assad-supporting address to the General Assembly in New York, “I didn’t see after that speech at the United Nations suddenly that 60-nation coalition we have lining up behind him.”

Trash Talking is fine when your name is Muhammad Ali and you have not only the ability, but also the willingness to use your fists to win the day. If your name is Barack Obama and you are President of the United States, you may have the ability in the form of the world’s finest military, but the willingness and intellect to back up your trash talk with effective actions just isn’t your forte.

Trash talking without substance to back it up appears to be a common theme with President Obama. We all can recall his comment to Governor Mitt Romney during the presidential debates, when Romney opined that Russia might be the biggest threat to the United States and world stability. Obama snarked back, “The 1980s called and they want their foreign policy back.” Recent events have proven Governor Romney right and President Obama’s trash talk to be ill informed and out of place. Russia, led by President Vladimir Putin, is indeed a threat and growing more so each day.

More recently, when queried about the potential of ISIS to cause major disruption in Southwest Asia, President Obama referred to them as a “JV Team.” That “JV Team” appears to have gotten the full attention of two major powers and a host of not-so-major ones. Again, the president’s trash talk is not in line with the facts on the ground or his own actual performance. Read More..

The Bankruptcy Of The Planet Accelerates – 24 Nations Are Currently Facing A Debt Crisis.

Posted on October 7th, 2015

Dominoes fallingBy Michael Snyder

There has been so much attention on Greece in recent months, but the truth is that Greece represents only a very tiny fraction of an unprecedented global debt bomb which threatens to explode at any moment.  As you are about to see, there are 24 nations that are currently facing a full-blown debt crisis, and there are 14 more that are rapidly heading toward one. 

Right now, the debt to GDP ratio for the entire planet is up to an all-time record high of 286 percent, and globally there is approximately 200 TRILLION dollars of debt on the books.  That breaks down to about $28,000 of debt for every man, woman and child on the entire planet.  And since close to half of the population of the world lives on less than 10 dollars a day, there is no way that all of this debt can ever be repaid.  The only “solution” under our current system is to kick the can down the road for as long as we can until this colossal debt pyramid finally collapses in upon itself.

As we are seeing in Greece, you can eventually accumulate so much debt that there is literally no way out.  The other European nations are attempting to find a way to give Greece a third bailout, but that is like paying one credit card with another credit card because virtually everyone in Europe is absolutely drowning in debt.

Even if some “permanent solution” could be crafted for Greece, that would only solve a very small fraction of the overall problem that we are facing.  The nations of the world have never been in this much debt before, and it gets worse with each passing day. Read More..

WHY? Former U.S. Diplomat Says Amb. Powers Instructed To Skip Netanyahu’s UN Speech

Posted on October 7th, 2015

Benjamin Netanyahu with Greek PMBy Kerry Picket

Richard Grenell, a former U.S. diplomat and Fox News contributor, says a State Department source told him U.N. Ambassador Samantha Power was instructed to skip the remarks of Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu at the United Nations on Thursday.

Secretary of State John Kerry was also not present at Netanyahu’s remarks either, according to MSNBC’s Andrea Mitchell.

Additionally, those U.S. delegates that did attend the Israeli Prime minister’s speech did not applaud when ovations broke out for remarks made by the Prime Minister about Iranian threats. Read More..

Obama Versus Putin — Golfer and Caddy

Posted on October 5th, 2015

Putin, Obama, Golfer, CaddyBy Monty Pelerin

Obama versus Putin is a mismatch. One so seriously overpowers the other that it is not a contest. Some have likened the Obama versus Putin comparison as small-town bully versus Big City Bully. Others have suggested that Putin is playing chess while Obama is playing checkers or marbles.

This site used this golf image a few years ago to define the relationship between Obama and Putin. The image illustrated the difference in abilities between the two. Subsequent events, particularly this week in Syria, validate the golfer and caddy roles. It Obama versus Putin were a boxing match, the referee would have stopped the fight before this point. But how do you employ a “mercy rule” in geopolitics. Chamberlain versus Hitler did not end until the entire world had suffered.

This country is in deep trouble and has been for several years. It should be obvious, even to Obama supporters, that their man is incompetent. He is being manhandled by Vlad. If you want to know why the Republican primaries are favoring outsiders, think of how Republicans have been snookered by this incompetent.

The dullards who refused to see the Community Organizer as a fraud during his first term are dwindling. Those who still support this clown are probably hopeless. Read More..

Syria Is Obama’s Watergate

Obama lines in Syria from www.caglecartoons.com # 169587By Michael Goodwin

What did he know and when did he know it? The immortal question about Richard Nixon and Water­gate should be posed to Barack Obama about Syria. What and when did he know about Vladimir Putin’s axis-of-evil coalition?

The significance is not limited to Syria. The question goes to the heart of the Iran nuclear deal, especially the timing of the congressional votes.

Imagine Obama trying to sell the Iran deal now. With Russia, Iran and Iraq working together to muscle the United States aside and defend Bashar al-Assad, the president couldn’t possibly argue that the nuke deal would help stabilize the Middle East. Nor could he argue that Russia could be trusted to help enforce ­restrictions on Iran.

The strong likelihood that Obama would have lost the Iran vote if Congress knew then what the world knows now suggests the possibility the president concealed the Russian plan until the Iran deal was done. That view fits with his single-minded determination to get a deal at any price, including making key concessions and downplaying Iranian threats to Israel and the United States.

After all that, what’s another lie? Read More..

Jimmy Carter Was a Better Dealmaker than Obama

Posted on October 2nd, 2015

Iran negation ObamaEDITOR’S COMMENT: With all due respect. I never expected to ever write or feature a headline like this. But, obviously it just goes to show how truly unbelievably bad this Iran deal is for America. Stop and ask yourself to name one real benefit that the United States gets from this agreement?

By Ed Rogers

As much as the Obama administration tries to put lipstick on this disaster via typical praise from its own hired hands — such as U.N. Ambassador Samantha Power and Secretary of State John Kerrysome candid statements from the Iranians highlight the deceit, denial and downright foolishness of what the Obama administration likes to claim is a “historic achievement.”

President Obama now has more than the 34 votes he needs to ensure he would be able to override a congressional vote that rejects the Iran nuclear agreement. Well, he has the votes he needs from the Democrats, but there won’t be many others joining the celebration. This is not much of a victory.

Most recently, Iranian President Hassan Rouhani said that he did not even want Iran’s parliament to hold a vote on the nuclear agreement, forthrightly announcing that, “If the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action is sent to (and passed by) parliament, it will create an obligation for the government. . . . . Why should we place an unnecessary legal restriction on the Iranian people?” In other words, Rouhani opposes adding any obligation or legitimacy to the deal. Interesting.

While President Obama was desperately seeking out enough votes from his fellow Democrats to keep the Iran nuclear deal alive, the Iranian president was scoffing at the very notion of doing anything that would strengthen or formalize the agreement.

What a disaster. What should the American people believe? The outright candor from the Iranians about all the things they will and will not do? Or the desperate, untethered statements from the Obama forces, as they try to reassure us not to worry, that they’ve got this? Read More..

On Syria, Obama Plays Tiddlywinks, Putin Plays Chess

Posted on October 1st, 2015

Putin at the United Nations, Obama from www.caglecartoons.com # 169469By Investor’s Business Daily

The White House was “surprised” by a new intelligence-sharing pact among Iran, Syria, Russia and Iraq to fight the Islamic State. But given their own actions, anyone else could have seen it coming.

For the Obama administration, there’s always a surprise when it comes to the Middle East. Having pulled out of Iraq before Iraq was ready, they were taken unawares by the Islamic State’s rise. Now Russia’s strategic moves to be the big dog on the block in the Mideast have thrown them for another loop.

Russia has forged an alliance with Syria, Iran and Iraq to share intelligence to destroy the Islamic State — without inviting the U.S. The pact has a powerful moral rationale, given the monstrosity of the enemy and the U.S. lack of will to fight. But it also will permanently extend Russian power in the region, something that Russia had under the USSR but that is also a longstanding imperial ambition dating back to the days of Vlad the Great.

What we are seeing here is the totally predictable outcome of a U.S. victory thrown away.

No matter how much Obama blames former President Bush or Syrian dictator Bashar Assad for the current shambles in the Middle East, the facts on the ground remain: Our military was on the cusp of victory after a painstaking process of engagement, but the entire effort was discarded for the far cheaper aim of pulling troops out and calling the pullout “peace.”

Instead of stabilizing Iraq and making it a bulwark against Iran and a beacon for the other Middle Eastern states, there was just the Obama administration’s self-delusion of “peace” with few U.S. troops around. Read More..
