Meriam Yahia Ibrahim Ishag

Any federal prison in America is like a five star hotel compared to the dungeons of Omdurman Federal Women’s Prison in Khartoum, Sudan.  Even the tent city Sheriff Joe developed for the pink underwear club is luxurious compared to daily beatings, rape, starvation, and bug infested cages of Omdurman’s dungeons.  But that’s precisely where 27 year-old, Dr. Meriam Yahia Ibrahim Ishag and her 20 month-old son, Martin Wani are being held captive.  Yet, as bad as it is right now – it’s about to get a lot worse.

We all know the liberal selfies of the world can’t be bothered with confusing topics or inconsequential issues like religious freedom.  And we can rest easy knowing some nameless U.S. government official said that America was “deeply disturbed” by the Sudan court’s flogging and death sentence.  That translates into, ‘we gave the family 30 seconds of our precious time, but otherwise, we don’t really care.’

But I care.  And I want to know where Barack and Michelle Obama, Hillary Clinton, John Kerry, the liberal Dreamers and all the other Muslim apologists are in this country.  Martin and the baby are – after all – U.S. citizens, locked in a cage in a dungeon full of infection and terror.

Make no mistake, Obama and his minions spring into action to defend Islam whenever necessary.  But American lives, Christianity, or traditional values – well that’s another story all together.

The President’s own actions demonstrate where his loyalties lie, and they clearly aren’t with America or its Constitution.  In 2012, imprisoned Muslim terrorists at the American Bagram Air Base in Afghanistan cleverly passed secrets back and forth using the interior pages of the Qurans from the prison library.  When it was discovered, American troops appropriately burned the books.  After the burning, Muslim leaders seized the opportunity to strike out at America, rioting and massacring 41 people.  Of course, they ignored the obvious – that their own Muslims had already defaced the Qurans by writing in them.  American soldiers were gunned down by “friendly” Muslims on the base, and four lost their lives.

Instead of standing firm and backing our troops, our Commander-In-Chief inappropriately cowered, apologizing to Muslim leaders while disgracing himself before the world and our U.S. Military.  Obama didn’t even seem to notice the brave soldiers who were slaughtered.

Obama’s next display of Muslim love was his 2012 declarations that the Arab Spring was over and we could all look forward to coexisting peacefully in a warm Christian, Jewish, Islamic, Shari’a, dog-patch mixing bowl of sublime contentment.  Since his ridiculous declaration was followed by the Muslim Brotherhood’s killing spree where they burned down churches and dragged nuns through the streets of Egypt, he was either clueless or in cahoots.  Or both.

His adoring fans were momentarily confused, but fortunately, Obama took time to clarify things while he was in between holes at a golf course on Martha’s Vineyard.

“We don’t take sides,” the President stated. “I know it’s tempting to blame the U.S. or the West (for what?) or some other outside actor for what’s gone wrong . . . ”   But basically folks, we can’t be involved, because . . . well because the rest of his foursome was waiting to tee off.

Of course, right on the heels of Obama’s decisive golf game came the ill-timed visit of Ambassador Chris Stevens to Benghazi, which of course was right after Obama’s decision to transfer guns to the al-Qaeda-aligned Islamist insurgency in Syria.

If Stevens hadn’t been in the wrong place at the wrong time, he and three other heroic Americans might still be alive today.  Because as we all know, the entire shootout and blow-up of the embassy was coincidental to a ‘dangerous’ YouTube video release, and not the transfer of arms to terrorists.

Come on folks, is the entire leadership of this country on crack?  I only ask because two-and-a-half years later, America still doesn’t have the truth and we are so far down the road to ruin that a strong wind could end this once great nation.

Sadly, based upon Obama’s history of embracing Muslims, it doesn’t come as a huge surprise that he won’t even glance in the direction of a beautiful, intelligent 27 year-old pregnant mother being tortured, personally violated (while eight months pregnant), starved and isolated in a horrific prison full of bugs and disease.

But it is absolutely unforgivable that her son; a black, 20 month-old, U.S. citizen named Martin, who’s locked in a filthy, bug ridden cage in the same prison – can’t get so much as a nod from Obama and/or fast-tracked out of there by the State Department.

Surely the plight of this legal citizen toddler deserves the same outrage that Obama spewed forth for Trayvon.  Since Obama stated Trayvon could easily have been his own son, perhaps he could see his way clear to take the frail Martin under his liberal wing and get him freed from that hell hole.

But then again, Martin is not Trayvon, and the toddler’s crime of being a 20 month-old Christian American in the all Muslim city of Khartoum is apparently far more grievous to our nation’s black leaders, than a teen with a rap sheet.

Of course the First Lady is too busy to be involved.  After all, she just made that all important trip to Topeka, Kansas, where she so ‘eloquently’ stated, “When you encounter folks who still hold the old prejudices because they’ve only been around folks like themselves . . . it is up to you to help them see things differently.”

See things differently?  I guess it’s easier to tell that to a group of American high school students and not to her Muslim buddies in the Sudanese government.  Or maybe it’s just easier for the First Lady to bash Christianity, traditional marriage and pro-life values, since that’s exactly what she did.  That’s got to be a pretty proud moment for her.

Meanwhile, Hillary’s busy on the campaign trail trying to live down her early resume when she worked for the communist run law firm of Treuhaft, Walker and Burnstein.  True, she’s tried to bury that memory, but some people don’t forget.

But surely she hasn’t forgotten how ‘it takes a village’ to raise a child (unless the child is an American citizen in a prison in Khartoum) and that this might be the right time to raise her voice against the holocaust happening in Shari’a run countries.  I suspect she’s too busy covering up that little Benghazi thing and those unfortunate sequences of events that don’t really make a difference – to notice Meriam, the baby or Martin.

They are, after all, just fighting to stay alive and get through the massacre that’s in front of them with dignity.   But I don’t think dignity is a word in Hillary’s vocabulary.

And Mr. Kerry . . . where is your outrage?  Could it be that you used up all your emotions gallivanting around with your old pal, Jane Fonda back in the 1960’s?  Because the two of you sure shared a lot of hatred, treachery, and outrage against American fighting troops back then.  Now that you’re Secretary of State, perhaps you could pull a few strings and have coffee with someone in Sudan and demand Martin’s release . . . then again, you’re probably too busy bashing America.

And where are John Boehner, Nancy Pelosi, Harry Reid, John McCain, Jeff Flake, and all the other ‘Dreamers’ in this country who rag on and on, spewing their diatribe about open borders and embracing illegal aliens who aren’t within ten years of legally earning U.S. Citizenship?

Considering Meriam’s young son, Martin, is already a legal American citizen who’s been subjected to unimaginable trauma and torture for the last four months, one would think the lad could at least get some attention from these collective buffoons.  Instead their silence is as deafening as the rest.

Could it be that their feigned fretting over the illegal alien population is as fabricated as their fake concern for future of this country?  Could it be that their one true agenda is about the new world order of secularist tyranny?

And finally, where is Ms. Sandra Fluke?  (Not that I really care.)

When Ms. Fluke graduated from Georgetown University Law Center, who could deny she was in a desperate plight.  The poor girl had no hope of ever being able to afford a condom or a $29 dollar pack of birth control pills.  Bless the left for rising up and supporting her – because now she can move on and live her left-wing legal life to it’s fullest, having all the unrestricted sex she desires without ever having to worry about paying for protection.

Whew!  I’m certain her trauma was every woman’s worst nightmare!

On the flip side is Meriam, eight months pregnant, being repeatedly assaulted and beaten in a prison because of her faith.  Even worse, and what many have already forgotten is that as soon as she delivers her baby, exhausted and dehydrated, she will be subjected to a horrific flogging.  Imagine her frail skin being ripped off as each of the 100 lashes tear across her back and chest.  And that is just the first of her two sentences.

She and Martin are in a living Hell.  Make no mistake, the president and his gang have the keys to free all of them.  A simple phone call would suffice, especially with a few missiles aimed appropriately at their military.  But as with Ambassador Stevens, they’d rather embrace the radical Shari’a Muslims than save two legal American children and rescue their mother who’s married to a U.S. Citizen.

Pregnant Sudan Christian Mother Sentenced to Hang to Death

By Joanne Moudy

Early this morning a 27-year-old, pregnant Sudanese mother was sentenced to death by hanging for being a Christian, but not until after she receives a flogging of 100 lashes for committing adultery (with her Christian husband).

Dr. Meriam Yahya Ibrahim Ishag was accused of apostasy and adultery earlier this year. According to Reuters, she was arrested and imprisoned in February, along with her 20 month-old son. She was formally charged by the Sudanese government on March 4th. Following her brief trial, she was found guilty of the charges and convicted on May 11th – Mother’s Day. The court gave her three days to recant her faith and proclaim herself a Muslim.

Congressman Trent Franks, AZ-8, had this to say after the sentencing today:

“We have learned that Meriam Yahia Ibraham Ishag – a Sudanese Christian woman – has been sentenced to death by hanging after being accused of apostasy by a court that gave her ‘three days to recant’ and ‘return to Islam.’ Ms. Ishag, who is married to an American citizen, was raised as an Orthodox Christian by her mother, thus making a ‘return’ to Islam fundamentally impossible. She is also eight months pregnant.

“Such blatant disregard for the value of human life – and religious freedom – is an indescribable disgrace. I urge the U.S. State Department to immediately step in on Ms. Ishag’s behalf and to articulate conclusively that such blatant abrogation of the most basic human rights will be taken extremely seriously, and that Sudan is expected to fulfill its sworn obligations under the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights.”

Although Meriam’s biological father was a Muslim, he deserted the family when Meriam was a mere six years old. She was raised by her mother.

Meriam finished college and then medical school and then married Wani, a Christian man from South Sudan, who happens to be an American Citizen. The couple has a 20 month-old son and Meriam is now eight months pregnant with their second child.

South Sudan is predominantly Christian and when the region seceded from Sudan in 2011, the Sudan government made it clear they would move forward with a 100% Islamic constitution and enforce Shari’a law. However, the new constitution has not yet been ratified.

According to Wani, last August someone posing as a relative reported Meriam in to the authorities for being a ‘Muslim who converted to Christianity.’ According to Shari’a law, any child born to a Muslim father must be brought up a Muslim. Anyone found guilty of converting from Islam to any other religion is guilty of apostasy and subject to the death penalty. Since Shari’a law does not recognize a Muslim woman’s marriage to anyone outside of Islam, the Sudan’s court also found Meriam guilty of adultery.

Wani further stated to Morning Star News that during the time Meriam has been incarcerated she has been beaten, personally abused, starved, and refused all medical treatment. There is concern the son will be executed as well.

This morning when Meriam was hauled into the district court in Khartoum for sentencing, she was placed in a cage and ‘counseled’ by Muslim religious leaders for thirty minutes. The court refused to use Meriam’s name, instead referring to her only by her father’s Muslim name of Adraf Al-Hadi Mohammed Abdullah.

According to Al Jazeera, at the end of the 30 minutes, Judge Abbas Mohammed Al-Khalifa asked her what she had decided. Meriam calmly stated, “I am a Christian and I never committed apostasy.”

Judge Abbas then sentenced her to a severe flogging for adultery, followed with death by hanging. Al-Shareef Ali al-Shareef Mohammed, Meriam’s attorney, did state they will appeal the sentencing within the next 15 days.

Manar Idriss, Amnesty International’s Sudan researcher said, “The fact that a woman has been sentenced to death for her religious choice, and to flogging for being married to a man of an allegedly different religion is appalling and abhorrent. Adultery and apostasy are acts which should not be considered crimes at all. It is flagrant breach of international human rights law.”

Even though Wani is a U.S. Citizen, he is being denied custody of his son and the child about to be born. The court has ignored the couple’s legal marriage certificate as well as the son’s legal birth certificate and claim that the only proof acceptable would be a positive DNA test – but that must be completed in the U.S. Such a test would require an inordinate amount of time, which neither Meriam nor her children have.

There is speculation that Meriam will be kept alive until her baby is born, but the fate of the child is unknown.

Chief Master Sergeant (Ret) Chuck Wooten, who is running for U.S. Congress in AZ-2 issued this statement:

“I am deeply saddened and outraged upon learning that Meriam was sentenced to death. Most especially when no crime was committed. Again, we must rely on the U.S. State Department to become engaged with the global community to mitigate this tragedy and to common citizens, it appears inaction has once again paralyzed the Department. There is a peaceful solution to destroying Meriam’s precious life, while she is carrying another precious life. Our diplomats should have already sprung into action to preclude further bloodshed in Sudan. I’m praying fervently for Meriam, her husband and her children this situation is swiftly and mercifully resolved.”

Rep Trent Franks Calls on State Department to Intervene on Sudanese Woman Sentenced to Death

International Religious Freedom Caucus Co-Chair: State Dept. Must Intervene on Behalf of Christian Woman Sentenced to Death

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Congressman Trent Franks (AZ-08), co-chair of the International Religious Freedom Caucus, today released the following statement in response to news that a Sudanese woman, Meriam Yahia Ibrahim Ishag, has been sentenced to death for her faith:

“We have learned that Meriam Yahia Ibrahim Ishag — a Sudanese Christian woman — has been sentenced to death by hanging after being accused of apostasy by a court that gave her ‘three days to recant’ and ‘return to Islam.’ Ms. Ishag, who is married to an American citizen, was raised as an Orthodox Christian by her mother, thus making a ‘return’ to Islam fundamentally impossible. She is also eight months pregnant.

“Such blatant disregard for the value of human life –and religious freedom — is an indescribable disgrace. I urge the U.S. State Department to immediately step in on Ms. Ishag’s behalf and to articulate conclusively that such blatant abrogations of the most basic human rights will be taken extremely seriously, and that Sudan is expected to fulfill its sworn obligations under the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights.”

Rep Paul Boyer: Support the Nuclear Weapon Free Iran Act

By Rep Paul Boyer

Paul BoyerThe Iranian regime remains the United States’ greatest national security threat despite the recent efforts at diplomatic outreach. Iran continues to be the world leader in state-sponsored terrorism and provides significant support to terrorist groups such as Hamas, Hizbollah, and President Assad’s regime in Syria. It is a regime that has the blood of American soldiers on its hands.

A nuclear-armed Iran would further elevate the status of the regime that already finances terrorism around the world. It would allow Iran to continue its illicit activities with less constraints and its global influence would increase dramatically. A nuclear-armed Iran poses an existential threat to Israel since Tehran has continually threatened to eliminate our democratic ally.

The Obama administration inked an interim agreement with Iran over the status of the regime’s nuclear program last November, but concerns remain over the terms of the agreement. Under the interim agreement, Tehran is continuing to enrich uranium – the key step in the development of a nuclear weapon – and retains its current nuclear material and infrastructure. The agreement is also worth between $6 and $7 billion in sanctions relief to the regime in Tehran, which could be used for illicit purposes or to perpetrate terrorism.

That’s why a bi-partisan majority of the U.S. senate is supporting the Nuclear Weapon Free Iran Act, sponsored by Sens. Robert Menendez (D-NJ) and Mark Kirk (R-IL). The bill, which currently has 59 cosponsors in the Senate, legislates new sanctions on Iran should it violate the current interim agreement or fail to reach a final agreement on the status of its nuclear program. The bill provides U.S. negotiators with the needed leverage to achieve a diplomatic solution.

In order to achieve a final agreement with Iran, U.S. negotiators must be given as much leverage as possible. Should Iran violate the terms of the current agreement, or fail to reach a final agreement with Western negotiators, new and increased sanctions should be levied on the Iranians. This provides negotiators with an important diplomatic tool to convince the Iranians to negotiate in good faith. And should the regime not follow through on its commitments, increased sanctions provide the U.S. with an insurance policy to prevent Iran from rapidly developing a nuclear weapon.

Senator John McCain (R-AZ) immediately cosponsored this important piece of legislation and should be commended for his commitment to stopping Iran’s nuclear program. I strongly encourage Senator Jeff Flake (R-AZ) to also join the majority of his colleagues in the Senate and cosponsor this bill.

The U.S. must use all tools available to prevent Iran’s nuclear program from accelerating and to ultimately prevent a military response. All Americans agree that a diplomatic solution is far preferable to a military one. But in order to achieve a strong diplomatic agreement and prevent military action, we must provide our negotiators with the necessary leverage.

Obama on Iran Nukes: “If you like your nukes you can keep them. Period.”

The Iran Nukes Deal and the 1938 Münich Pact

by Bob Quasius – In a move reminiscent of the 1938 Münich Pact that appeased Hitler by serving up part of Czechoslovakia, the Obama administration agreed to a bad deal on Iran Nukes to appease Iran.

Neville Chamberlain Adolf Hitler iran nukes czechoslovakia

Neville Chamberlain offers up Czechoslovakia as appeasement to Adolf Hitler

I use the term “appeasement” because Iran gave up little of any substance in return for a deal, while the U.S. and other great powers allowed Iran to keep their enrichment capability and heavy water reactor, and partially lifted economic sanctions and freed up frozen assets badly needed by the Iranian economy.

As in 1938, politicians needed diplomatic success to distract attention from domestic woes at home. Europeans were understandably war weary twenty years after the great war, and frightened by Hitler’s bellicose rhetoric.

With Obama’s Obamacare “train wreck” and leadership failures on immigration reform, he needed a diplomatic success at any cost. There’s also been a lot of bellicose rhetoric coming from Iran and it’s allies lately.

Obama has long been hostile towards Israel, and no doubt felt no need to protect Israel’s self-defense needs.

Lesson of the 1938 Münich Pact

In response to increasingly bellicose rhetoric about Czechoslovakia from German Füher Adolf Hitler, the great powers convened in Münich to find a diplomatic solution. Czechoslovakia was invited to early talks, but purposefully not invited to the final negotiations.

It’s obvious that British Chamberlain and the other great powers wanted a deal at any cost. Europe was still mired in the great depression and the memory of World War I deeply scarred the minds of many Europeans. Clearly Chamberlain and the others wanted a diplomatic success to distract attention from economic problems at home.

“If at first you don’t succeed, try, try, try again.” – Neville Chamberlain, 1938

Hitler was all too willing to meet Chamberlain’s political need to agree to anything to “win peace”, and demanded that Czechoslovakia hand over the Sudetenland region to Germany. Not surprisingly Czechoslovakia refused. After the Münich Pact was signed – without Czechoslovakia – Neville Chamberlain bragged how he saved world peace.

The rest is history. Czechoslovakia’s frontier defenses were nearly all located in the Sudetenland, and the Czechs lost their capability to defend against the inevitable German aggression six months later. Germany also occupied Austria and the Ruhr without ever firing a shot.

11 months later Germany invaded Poland, miscalculating that England and France had no stomach for war.

Appeasement by England and France also encouraged Russia to sign a non-aggression pact with Germany, then turn on it’s neighbors Finland, Estonia, Latvia, and Lithuania.

The Pretext for Iran Nukes

Iran has always claimed it needs nuclear power for its economy. However, Iran virtually floats on a sea of oil. Moreover, nations can buy nuclear plants and fuel from elsewhere without the need to develop their own nuclear energy technology.

To acquire nuclear power plants, nations must sign and follow the Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT). Iran signed the NPT before the Ayatollahs came to power, but was caught red handed with a secret Uranium enrichment program in 2003 and remained in constant non-compliance ever since. Russia has sold Iran nuclear plants and fuel despite Iran’s refusal to abide by the NPT.

Nuclear reactors require low enriched Uranium of about 3.5% enrichment. Once Iran achieved the capability for low enriched Uranium, Iran quickly began work on 19.5% highly enriched Uranium, claiming Iran needs medical isotopes. However, medical isotopes are readily available for purchase on world markets, and producing medical isotopes requires technological mastery well beyond the capability of Iran.

There are only two other reasons for a nation to produce highly enriched Uranium:

  • Nuclear weapons.
  • Nuclear powered warships use highly enriched Uranium for more compact nuclear reactors. However, Iran lacks a blue water Navy, and thus doesn’t need nuclear powered ships.

There is just a short step from 19.5% highly enriched Uranium to even more highly enriched Uranium needed to manufacture nuclear weapons, and the same centrifuges that enrich Uranium to 3.5% can be used to make 97% enriched Uranium for nuclear bombs, but it requires large numbers of centrifuges to make enough material for nukes.

The Long Record of Deception for Iran Nukes

Hassan Rouhani iran nukes jew dogs

Iranian President Hassan Rouhani – Deceived West during years of nuclear negotiations

For decades, Iran told the West it wasn’t interested in talks about much of anything.

However, of the past ten years, whenever it appeared Israel or the West was prepared to act militarily to stop Iran’s nuclear program, Iran agreed to talks, then dragged its’feet before talks finally happened, and offered little of substance at the talks, which always ended with no progress. Meanwhile, Iran bought time to push it’s nuclear program forward without fear of a military strike while talks were upcoming or during talks.

Essentially took a page out of North Korea’s playbook. North Korea bought time with talks, and after agreeing to abandon nuclear weapons development in exchange for aid, developed nukes anyway. When North Korea surprised the world with a nuclear detonation, it was already too late: the ‘train had already left the station.’

Recently Hassan Rouhani was elected President of Iran. Rouhani bragged just a few months ago how he deceived the West for years about Iran nukes, as Iran’s chief nuclear negotiator.

YouTube Preview Image

The West has long vainly sought “moderates” in the Iranian regime, and liberals were ecstatic when Rouhani was elected, wishfully thinking at long last Iran had finally elected a “moderate.”

However, those who embrace Hassan Rouhani as a “moderate” fail to understand Iran’s system of government. The real power in Iran lies with the Ayatollahs, particularly Supreme Leader Ali Hosseini Khamenei.

Iran’s Council of Guardians has veto power over candidates for public office, and every election vast numbers of candidates are rejected. Only a handful of candidates whose views are close to Khamenei’s are allowed to run. In short, there are NO moderates in Iran’s regime, and any thoughts to the contrary are nothing more than wishful thinking.

This past election cycle, the Council of Guardians rejected the candidacy of former president Rafsanjani, apparently in retaliation for not coming down hard on the Greens during the protests and civil unrest. which made him not extreme enough for Khamenei.

If you think Khamenei is a moderate, then listen to his comments shortly before the Iran nuke appeasement was offered up in Geneva.

 “Zionist officials cannot be called humans, they are like animals, some of them. The Israeli regime is doomed to failure and annihilation.”

Khamenei soon followed his speech with this Facebook post and tweet.

Ayatollah Khamenei and Hassan Rouhani and the 12th Imam Cult

Mahmoud Ahmadinejad Ali Khamenei iran nukes 12th imam mahdi

Ali Khamenei with Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, both members of 12th Imam Cult

Like Ahmadinejad before him Iran’s new president Hassan Rouhani belongs to the 12th Imam Cult. So does Khamenei. Ayatollah Khomeini thought the 12th Imam cult so extreme, even by his standards, that he banned the cult! The Archbishop Cranmer blog aptly describes Rouhani’s 12er views:

“Cleric Hassan Rouhani is a pious man, devoted like all Shias to the Hidden Imam, the Messiah-like figure of Shia Islam. This President, like the previous one, believes that his government must prepare the country for the Imam’s return. All streams of Islam believe in a divine saviour, known as the Mahdi, who will appear at the End of Days in the company of Isa (Jesus). But President/Cleric Rouhani pledged himself with Ayatollah Khamenei decades ago to work for the return of the Mahdi. Indeed, Iran’s military involvement in Syria, Lebanon and Iraq is purposely designed to agitate against Israel to hasten the Last Day. Iran’s dominant ‘Twelver’ sect believes the Mahdi will be Mohammed ibn Hasan, regarded as the 12th Imam and descendant of the Prophet Mohammed.”

Members of the 12th Imam cult believe the Mahdi, or hidden Imam, will return after a period of unprecedented bloodshed and create a worldwide caliphate, and that they can create conditions to bring about the Mahdi’s return.

Fanatics and Nuclear Weapons Don’t Mix!

Guess what fanatics with nuclear weapons can do?

Four nukes is sufficient to destroy tiny Israel. Israel has enough nukes to thoroughly damage Iran, a much larger nation. Many Western leaders who still don’t grasp the apocalyptic views of Iran’s leaders assume Iran would never use nukes or give them to terrorists who would.

However, when you listen to their own rhetoric about annihilating Israel and the constant talk about the Mahdi returning to Earth, the threat of a nuclear armed Iran with apocalyptic leaders must be taken very seriously! Just listen to Ahmadinejad’s speech to the UN.

President Rouhani is cut from the same cloth as Khamenei and Ahmadinejad, and none of them are to be trusted with the capability to produce and deliver nuclear weapons!

War is the Failure of Diplomacy

“All war represents a failure of diplomacy.” Tony Denn, British Labour Party politician (source)

The 1938 Münich Pact was an abject failure, and so too will be the Geneva accords. Has the world forgotten North Korea use the same playbook to build nukes after agreeing not to, in exchange for food and energy aid?

The Geneva accords basically recognized Iran’s right to continue it’s nuclear program, and while certain aspects of Iran’s program are temporarily suspended while a permanent agreement is sought, as always verification is very difficult, and Iran has a long history of refusing to cooperate with nuclear inspectors, and hiding nuclear facilities until revealed by Western or Israeli spy agencies, or by Iranian resistance moles inside the regime.

Like the 1938 Münich Pact, the small nation that was ‘thrown under the bus’ was not invited to the talks but expected to abide by an agreement negotiated by others and fiercely resisted. Czechoslovakia wasn’t strong enough to refuse to abide by the Münich Pact, but Israel is quite a different matter.

Israel’s Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has repeatedly warned the world the deal being negotiated was a bad deal. Israel has enough military resources that we can fully expect Israel to strike Iran nuclear facilities, and reports are already rampant that Saudi Arabia and the Gulf states, who rightly fear a nuclear-armed Iran, will work with Israel to make a strike a reality.

Now that diplomacy has so clearly failed, we can expect Israel will waste no more time, and will act, and act decisively. I hope the world is ready for a regional war in the Middle East and South Asia that will make Iraq and Afghanistan look like schoolyard brawl!

Congressman Matt Salmon Responds to President’s Speech on Syria

Washington—Today, Rep. Matt Salmon (AZ-05), Chairman of the House Foreign Affairs Subcommittee on the Western Hemisphere, released the following statement in response to President Obama’s address to the nation on Syria:

“Tonight, the President had one more prime opportunity to convince Americans why they should support his plan on Syria. Instead, Americans are left with more confusion and more questions that remain unanswered on what he hopes to accomplish. At a time when the leader of the free world should be leading the charge to build coalitions of other nations, this Administration has sadly exported the duties of diplomacy to Russian President Vladmir Putin. After tonight’s speech, I remain opposed to military intervention in Syria, and I remain disheartened by the lack of leadership coming from this White House.”

Wendy Rogers: Congress should vote ‘no’ on Syria

By Lt Col Wendy Rogers (ret)
Republican for Congress

As a fifth generation officer in America’s military, and one of the Air Force’s first 100 women pilots ever, I spent nearly half of my 20-year active duty career overseas. Being devoted to the defense of our great nation and to free people everywhere, I offer the following advice to President Obama and Congress without equivocation:

First, never let the enemy know what we are thinking. And second, never put American troops into harm’s way with an objective short of total victory.

Concerning Syria, both of these rules have been egregiously broken. And for our Congress, now tasked with voting on whether or not to authorize military action, the only responsible vote is no.

The president has put America into a box by declaring a red line that cannot be crossed. Now that the red line has been crossed, he is turning to Congress. He has put us into the untenable position of having committed to a response, so now asks the Congress to decide whether we really should punish Syria for crossing that red line.

To date, more than 1 million Syrians have fled their homes or been made homeless by the bombing. They are part of one of the largest humanitarian crises in the world today. President Obama’s proposed “shot across the bow”, now before Congress to consider, will not alleviate the massive hunger or medical crisis in Syria. In fact, as a career military officer with thousands of pilot hours over foreign countries, I can assure you what Congress is considering will be as ineffective as last year’s $85 billion cut was to reduce our $16 trillion national debt.

While Congress dithers in Washington, and the president continues to vacillate, there are important issues that we, the American people must consider:

First, the situation on the ground is terribly risky. The so-called rebels who comprise the resistance against President Assad are strongly backed by fundamentalist Islamic groups, including Al Qaeda. A previous proposal to send large shipments of military aid to these groups effectively would have been arming the very terrorist groups which target America and our allies.

Second, if these groups were to succeed in overthrowing the Assad regime, there is no guarantee his successor would be any less cruel, any more humane, or any more reasonable with Western powers. As Libya and Egypt have demonstrated, sometimes the devil you don’t know is worse than the devil you do.

And third, what would be the result of military action? As being debated by Congress, would it be a limited military engagement on the order of air strikes against Syria’s air force? What would a strike accomplish? And under any of these scenarios, do we have a coherent and cohesive exit strategy to bring our brave servicemen and women home?

So far, we have heard very little about the real risks involved for our troops, little discussion of a worst-case scenario, and almost no direct answers linking Syria’s crisis to America’s national security. As the pundit and columnist Charles Krauthammer wisely opined, “The problem is not that [President Obama is] not selling his strategy, it is that he doesn’t have a strategy, and that’s the reason everybody, left, right and center has no idea what he’s doing.”

Without clear answers to these questions, and without a compelling reason, why should precious American lives be risked just to fire an ineffectual “shot across the bow”? Until these questions are satisfactorily answered, the only responsible vote in Congress on this action should be no.

Maricopa GOP Chair Rallies LD Censures

To all Arizona County and LD Republican Committee Chairmen -
Below is the front page article of the July 15 Arizona Capitol Times. I want to express my appreciation to those courageous and principled County and LD Republican Committees who have already conducted votes of “censure” and/or “no confidence.”
Jan Brewer, the legislators and their crony capitalist friends that support ObamaCare and Medicaid expansion have betrayed Americans, Arizona Republicans and the Republican Party Platform.  Their lack of ethics, integrity and egregious acts are motivated by only two things – greed and the lust for power – at the expense of hard working tax paying Americans.
The law was expected to cost $898 billion over the first decade when the bill was first passed, but this year the Congressional Budget Office revised that estimate to $1.85 trillion.  Money that will have to be borrowed from the Chinese or printed in the backroom of the Federal Reserve.  Latest polls indicate a majority of Americans are opposed to ObamaCare and Medicaid expansion with an overwhelming majority of Republicans in opposition.
During the past six months, we did everything we could to make a solid argument against ObamaCare and Medicaid expansion, we tried to reason with these people and even tried to make them see the light.  Unfortunately, our lobbying efforts fell on deaf ears and without success.
During one of Ronald Reagan’s difficult political battles he said,
               “When you can’t make them see the light, make them feel the heat.”
I’m asking all the County and LD Republican Committees to make these people feel the heat by passing public censures for their actions.  They are elitists who think what they have done should be forgiven. They are mistaken.  We are not going to be able to defeat all of them, but we can defeat a majority of them in the 2014 Primary Election.
You can go to “MCRC Briefs” and get examples of public censures that have already been passed.  http://briefs.maricopagop.org/  Just type “censure” in the search field on the left.
Warmest regards,
 A. J. LaFaro
Chairman, Maricopa County Republican Committee
P.S.  Please encourage all of your PCs to keep up their daily efforts in getting petition signatures for www.urapc.org  Getting ObamaCare and Medicaid expansion on the November 2014 ballot will be historic for Arizona’s grassroots conservatives.

Betrayal in Benghazi
 
Phil “Hands” Handley
Colonel, USAF (Ret.)
 
The combat code of the US Military is that we don’t abandon our dead or wounded on the battlefield. In US Air Force lingo, fighter pilots don’t run off and leave their wingmen. If one of our own is shot down, still alive and not yet in enemy captivity, we will either come to get him or die trying. Among America ‘s fighting forces, the calm, sure knowledge that such an irrevocable bond exists is priceless. Along with individual faith and personal grit, it is a sacred trust that has often sustained hope in the face of terribly long odds.
 
The disgraceful abandonment of our Ambassador and those brave ex-SEALs who fought to their deaths to save others in that compound is nothing short of dereliction-of-duty. Additionally, the patently absurd cover-up scenario that was fabricated in the aftermath was an outright lie in an attempt to shield the President and the Secretary of State from responsibility.
 
It has been over eight months since the attack on our compound in Benghazi . The White House strategy, with the aid of a “lap dog press” has been to run out the clock before the truth is forthcoming. The recent testimonies of the three “whistle blowers” have reopened the subject and hopefully will lead to exposure and disgrace of those responsible for this embarrassing debacle. 
 
It would appear that the most recent firewall which the Administration is counting on is the contention that there were simply no military assets that could be brought to bear in time to make a difference… mainly due to the unavailability of tanker support for fighter aircraft. This is simply BS, regardless how many supposed “experts” the Administration trot out to make such an assertion. The bottom line is that even if the closest asset capable of response was half-way around the world, you don’t just sit on your penguin ass and do nothing. The fact is that the closest asset was not half-way around the world, but as near as Aviano Air Base , Italy where two squadrons of F-16Cs are based. Consider the following scenario (all times Benghazi local):
 
When Hicks in Tripoli receives a call at 9:40 PM from Ambassador Stevens informing him “Greg, we are under attack!” (his last words), he immediately notifies all agencies and prepares for the immediate initiation of an existing “Emergency Response Plan.” At AFRICON, General Carter Ham attempts to mount a rescue effort, but is told to “stand down.” By 10:30 PM an unarmed drone is overhead the compound and streaming live feed to various Command and Control Agencies… and everyone watching that feed knew damn well what was going on. At 11:30 PM Woods, Doherty and five others leave Tripoli, arriving in Benghazi at 1:30 AM on Wednesday morning, where they hold off the attacking mob from the roof of the compound until they are killed by a mortar direct hit at 4:00 AM. 
 
So nothing could have been done, eh?  Nonsense.  If one assumes that tanker support really was not available… what about this:
 
· When at 10:00 PM AFRICON alerts the 31st TFW Command Post in Aviano Air Base, Italy of the attack, the Wing Commander orders preparation for the launch of two F-16s and advises the Command Post at NAS Sigonella to prepare for hot pit refueling and quick turn of the jets.
 
· By 11:30 PM, two F-16Cs with drop tanks and each armed with five hundred 20 MM rounds are airborne. Flying at 0.92 mach they will cover the 522 nautical miles directly to NAS Sigonella in 1.08 hours. 
 
· While in-route, the flight lead is informed of the tactical situation, rules of engagement, and radio frequencies to use. 
 
· The jets depart Sigonella at 1:10 AM with full fuel load and cover the 377 nautical miles directly to Benghazi in 0.8 hours, arriving at 1:50 AM… which would be 20 minutes after the arrival of Woods, Doherty and their team.
 
· Providing that the two F-16s initial pass over the mob, in full afterburner at 200 feet and 550 knots did not stop the attack in its tracks, only a few well placed strafing runs on targets of opportunity would assuredly do the trick. 
 
· Were the F-16s fuel state insufficient to recover at Sigonelli after jettisoning their external drop tanks, they could easily do so at Tripoli International Airport , only one-half hour away. 
 
· As for those hand-wringing naysayers who would worry about IFR clearances, border crossing authority, collateral damage, landing rights, political correctness and dozens of other reasons not to act… screw them. It is high time that our “leadership” get their priorities straight and put America ‘s interests first. 
 
The end result would be that Woods and Doherty would be alive. Dozens in the attacking rabble would be rendezvousing with “72 virgins”… and a clear message would have been sent to the next worthless POS terrorist contemplating an attack on Americans that it is not really a good idea to “tug on Superman’s cape.” 
 
Of course all this would depend upon a Commander In Chief that was more concerned with saving the lives of those he put in harm’s way than getting his crew rest for a campaign fund raising event in Las Vegas the next day. As well as a Secretary of State that actually understood “What difference did it make?”, or a Secretary of Defense whose immediate response was not to the effect that “One of the military tenants is that you don’t commit assets until you fully understand the tactical situation.” Was he not watching a live feed from the unarmed drone… and he didn’t understand the tactical situation? YGBSM! 
 
Ultimately it comes down to the question of who give that order to “stand down?” Whoever that coward turns out to be should be exposed, removed from office, and face criminal charges for dereliction of duty. The combat forces of the United States of America deserve leadership that really does “have their back” when the chips are down.

Rep. Paul Gosar Introduces the F.A.U.L.T Act

Congressman Paul Gosar

‘Sending billions of taxpayer dollars overseas to hostile countries is unconscionable’   

WASHINGTON, D.C. -U.S. Congressman Paul A. Gosar, D.D.S (AZ-04) introduced the Foreign Assistance Under Limitation and Transparency Act or the F.A.U.L.T Act. This legislation is intended to limit foreign aid to five countries that undermine U.S. foreign policy objectives – Iran, North Korea, Syria, Egypt, and Pakistan. Rep. Gosar issued the following statement:

“Sending billions of taxpayer dollars overseas to hostile countries is unconscionable. Yet, only in Washington, D.C. does it make sense to pay other governments to undermine our foreign policy objectives.”

Rep. Gosar continued, “When countries like Iran, North Korea, Syria, Egypt, and Pakistan act like enemies rather than friends toward the United States and our allies, the time to cut them off from U.S. taxpayer dollars is now.”

Rep. Gosar previously introduced amendments to the last two Department of Defense Appropriations Acts that sought to ensure that foreign aid was not given to hostile international regimes and organizations.  He has introduced the F.A.U.L.T Act as stand-alone legislation in the hope to expand upon these principles and codify them into law.

Chuck Hagel: An Idiotic Choice? No, A Tactical Maneuver

By Lisa Benson

Lisa BensonNeoconservative backers of the Iraq War have long had issues with Chuck Hagel, President Barack Obama’s choice for Secretary of Defense (OSD). Of all the stories floating around about the nomination of Chuck Hagel, his involvement with the George Soros — Obama’s Boss — and the devil incarnate is the most insidious in my opinion.

Hagel has a long-standing feud with Lindsey Graham and John McCain over breaking away from supporting the Iraqi war. However, as much as I am reading that Obama’s choice for OSD is to exasperate a rift within the Republican establishment, I am inclined to believe that the purpose is broader, more sweeping and more serious than just what the mainstream media is reporting.

In my opinion, if we activists and national security/Pro-Israel policy hawks focus on the minutia of Hagel’s remarks regarding Israel, we will certainly lose any effort to thwart his appointment.

This appointment can only be stopped in its tracks if our elected officials get to the root of the problem: the overarching agenda of this administration and those who support it.

The “paymaster of the Democratic Party” is behind this nomination; the man who is responsible for many of the problems that beset the west. GEORGE SOROS

Much is written about Soros and his communist connections beginning when he fled Hungry in 1946. He made exits through major Soviet check points even when others could not. He traded currencies on the black market during Hitler’s occupation in Hungary and started a banking enterprise, worldwide. Much is written, spoken and debated about the Soros plan for a “one world order” and his communist connections.

The Obama “brain trust” includes the likes of George Soros, John Podesta (who managed the Obama transition team in 2008), Gary Hart, Mike Allen, Brent Scowcroft and Thomas Pickering.

This week we learned that the Obama “brain trust,” with the financial backing of George Soros, hired the brother of John Podesta – Tony Podesta – of the elite lobbying firm THE PODESTA GROUP, Washington, D.C. to take up the Hagel cause. In short order: the Podesta firm has been hired to influence defense contractors to finance, promote ads and back Chuck Hagel. By “influence” I mean “support or lose your government defense contracts” is the not so subtle innuendo. Financed lobbying effort by George Soros.

What IS very concerning to me is the involvement of notorious Communist, George Soros in the nomination of Chuck Hagel.

As someone said to me today, “Soros is as Jewish as Hitler was a Christian.”

Everything George Soros involves himself with is to promote a Progressive, Socialist, Communist reformist agenda, including his backing of Chuck Hagel.

…And What About the Deutsche Bank?

Hagel was appointed in 2009 to Deutsche Bank’s Americas Advisory Board. The PAID position placed him in close contact with the bank’s senior leadership.

SorosHagel

Here is the clincher and a jaw dropping revelation:

Germany’s Deutsche Bank is reportedly being probed by U.S. authorities for VIOLATING the trade embargo on Iran’s oil and energy sector, which is believed to play a key role in Tehran’s nuclear enrichment program.

Much of this information regarding Deutsche Bank can be read in THE WASHTINGTON FREE BEACON. However, the George Soros promotion of Hagel is hardly spoken.

Most recently, and in my opinion, seriously concerning, is evidence of Hagel as an IRANIAN APOLOGIST, as an opponent of sanctions or strong policy against a nuclear Iran. His appointment continues the Obama administration’s weak, apologetic and appeasement diplomacy this administration is known for — weak and uninformed is the norm in the Situation Room. As witnessed by the horrific details emerging regarding Benghazi.

When the nomination for the United States Secretary of Defense merits a press release from the Iranian government, as happened yesterday, applauding the President of the United States for his choice for OSD, everyone needs to take notice — or should take notice.

Summary:

Tony Podesta, THE PODESTA GROUP, tripled its staff three years ago, receives half a million dollars a year from General Dynamics, a military contractor. Brother John is a close ally of President Obama and headed up the Obama transition team in 2008.

We have a Socialist/Communist lead administration, funded by George Soros, making government contract deals with defense contractors. ??????

Some say that George Soros is a pawn for the Obama administration. I beg to differ. Soros is the boss and he is dangerously manifesting his “one world order” plan on the backs, and in contrast, to everything this Republic stands for.

“Bye Bye American Pie!”

The Office of the Secretary of Defense (OSD) is the principal staff element of the Secretary of Defense in the exercise of policy development, planning, resource management, fiscal, and program evaluation responsibilities. OSD includes the immediate offices of the Secretary and Deputy Secretary of Defense, Under Secretaries of Defense, Director of Defense Research and Engineering, Assistant Secretaries of Defense, General Counsel, Director of Operational Test and Evaluation, Assistants to the Secretary of Defense, Director of Administration and Management and such other staff offices as the Secretary establishes to assist in carrying out assigned responsibilities.

Hagel, as a “Soros Machine Puppet” will be responsible for every aspect of our nation’s defense, and apparently, George Soros has great influence on the Obama administration and on the policy and direction of the United States. This, actually makes me shudder.

It is obvious, after conducting this research that Chuck Hagel, if appointed, will be a pawn/ puppet and member of the Soros Machine ready, willing and able and positioned to lead the charge against strong national security policies. Israel will be hanging out there alone in the Iranian matter.

Finally, I would like to add, if we keep the heat on the Hagel nomination, don’t be so sure that Hagel himself won’t opt out of the appointment.

Tell the Chairman of the US Senate Committee on Armed Services “NO to Hagel.” Contact Chairman Levin today.

Barack Obama – The President of Shiny Objects

President Obama is a president of shiny objects. He deflects, distracts and distorts as his method of governing.

Here are two examples:

Back in the second week of June, Attorney General Eric Holder was under fire by the US Senate during testimony in the US Senate. There were calls for his resignation and contempt citations. The US Supreme Court was also due to release its ruling on Arizona’s SB 1070. And the Inspector General released a report on Secret Service misconduct. What did President Obama do? He issued the notorious deferred action order which basically told children born to illegal immigrants in the US that federal agencies would ignore existing law and put them into some vague legal limbo.

THIS WAS A DISTRACTION.

Fast forward to September 11, 2012 and four US citizens including an ambassador are murdered in cold blood while serving at the US Embassy in Benghazi, Libya. The President and his administration do everything they can to avoid using the word terrorism but it becomes very apparent that they and their willing accomplices in media (with the exception of FoxNews) finally get caught omitting and covering for candidate Obama right before the election. Suddenly and strangely, the head of the CIA self-outs himself as an adulterer and immediately resigns his position days before he is scheduled to testify before the US Senate on what really happened in Benghazi. Coincidence?

One thing is certain. Everyone’s attention has been shifted off the four murdered Americans on to a titillating and salacious sex scandal involving US generals and Pentagon housewives.

The lesson to be learned here? Keep your eyes on this president. His MO is to deflect, distract, distort, divide and deny.

Four More Years?

Let’s Take Our Time, Find the Right Leader on Israel Issues

Opinion Editorial by Bill Levine & Elliott Pollack
Published in the Jewish News of Greater Phoenix on January 6, 2012 

One such supporter is a business leader and U.S. Senate candidate we both know well: Wil Cardon, who entered the race for Kyl’s seat just a few months ago. We have had the chance to talk to Wil about Israel and the conflict in the Middle East.

In a sentence: He gets it. Wil not only understands the need to aggressively, effectively oppose those who would seek to destroy Israel, but he also stands fully committed to the primacy of the U.S.-Israel partnership.
