President @BarackObama Just Made Another #RedLine Blunder

Remember this?

Of course you do, because Obama walked it back just mere hours before they were going to bomb al-Assad back to the stone age. President Obama was so embarrassed by the whole episode, that he tried to claim he didn’t set any red lines to begin with.

Well, it would seem that he has blundered into yet another “Red Lines” fiasco:

Senior Obama administration officials at the White House’s National Security Council told Congress Wednesday (2015/12/30) morning that new sanctions were coming as a result of Iran’s repeated ballistic missile tests, which violate current United Nations Security Council Resolutions prohibiting such activity.

However, the administration quietly walked back its announcement, telling lawmakers that the sanctions would be indefinitely delayed.

D’oh! President Obama just made members of his own National Security Council out to be a bunch of lairs. I am sure that they won’t take offense over this slight, at all [/sarcasm]. They have no honor if they just let this slide.

On top of everything, this makes President Obama look like he is taking orders from Iran:

Obama: I am going to slap new sanctions on Iran’s illegal missile tests.

Iran: …No you are not.

Obama: Did I say sanctions? I meant strongly worded letter!

Yeah, I’m positive that is how it went down.

But I am sure there are other people who are hopping mad right now. People who do not work for President Obama and can slam him. No, not Republicans:

The move sparked a fierce backlash among prominent congressional leaders who have served as chief advocates for the administration’s efforts to ink a nuclear deal with Iran. …

Rep. Steny Hoyer (D., Md.), a leading supporter of the Iran deal, blasted the move, expressing disappointment with the administration’s efforts to appease Iran.

“I am disappointed that the Administration has delayed punitive action in response to Iran’s recent ballistic missile tests,” Hoyer said in a statement. “We are always in a sensitive moment in our dealings with Iran, and there is never a perfect time to undertake such actions. But Iran must know with certainty that violating U.N. Security Council resolutions, both inside and outside the scope of the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), will be met with serious consequences.”

Sen. Chris Coons (D., Del.), another leading deal supporter who initially praised the new sanctions, also expressed dismay at the administration’s move to delay the effort.

“I believe in the power of vigorous enforcement that pushes back on Iran’s bad behavior,” Coons told the Wall Street Journal. “If we don’t do that, we invite Iran to cheat.”

Ha-Ha! President Obama just made all of his supporters look like chumps! I bet you anything that they are going to do nothing to sanction Obama in any way shape or form. They are dancing to Iran’s tune, through Obama. They are puppets of a puppet.

This “I Told You So” would be much sweeter if many lives were not on the line right now. I am alarmed at the total lack of self-awareness in making the choice of not going through with new Iran sanctions, after you announce them. There is a saying (with many variations) that apply here:

The second kick from a mule is of no educational value.

President Obama just got kicked by the same mule, for virtually the same damn reason. And I am dead sure that they have yet to learn the lesson.

Well, see ya’ later!

The #ExecutiveOrder/#ExecutiveAction Double-Edge Sword

Gov. Matt Bevin is giving The Left a lesson in the double-edge nature of executive orders and the rule-of-law:

Kentucky’s newly sworn-in Gov. Matt Bevin has issued a series of executive orders undoing much of his Democratic predecessor’s work in one fell swoop.

Not only did Bevin strip the voting rights of some 140,000 former felons, he also reduced the minimum wage for some state employees from $10.10 per hour back to $7.25, Think Progress reported. …

Though Bevin’s predecessor, Steve Beshear, didn’t restore the voting rights to violent felons, Bevin said he doesn’t support Beshear’s use of an executive order to achieve that end. “While I have been a vocal supporter of the restoration of rights,” Bevin said in a prepared statement to the Lexington Herald Leader. “it is an issue that must be addressed through the legislature and by the will of the people.”

Of course, liberals are losing their minds over Gov. Matt Bevin upholding the rule of law. They’re basically jumping up and down saying that you can not undo an executive order. You can read all of that here, because I am too lazy to link them all.

I would like to note that yes, yes you can undo an executive order. These are not laws and are subject to the whim of executive branch. As the Wall Street Journal notes, President Obama’s executive orders/executive actions may not last long:

The Obama legacy is built on executive orders, regulations and agency actions that can be overturned using the same authority Mr. Obama employed to put them in place.

An array of President Obama’s policies – changing immigration law, blocking the Keystone XL pipeline, the Iranian nuclear agreement and the normalization of relations with Cuba, among others – were implemented exclusively through executive action. Because any president is free “to revoke, modify or supersede his own orders or those issued by a predecessor,” as the Congressional Research Service puts it, a Republican president could overturn every Obama executive action the moment after taking the oath of office.

Since Donald Trump is the Republican front runner, would he undo those four policies?

It goes without saying that a President Trump would undo President Obama’s executive orders/executive actions on immigration. I do not have to give you examples.

A President Trump would be very supportive of the Keystone XL Pipeline: “If I am elected President I will immediately approve the Keystone XL pipeline. No impact on environment & lots of jobs for U.S.”

From what I have heard, Trump is not a fan of the Iran Deal.

And to top everything off, Trump would take a hardline on Cuba.

There is talk on new executive orders by Obama on Gun Control. Trump is having none of it.

Rule by fiat is fleeting. I, for one, appreciate this life lesson from Gov. Matt Bevin and I hope you do too. This is also a warning to Republican Presidents/Governors as well.

Well, see ya’ later!

#HiroshimaNagasaki70: Bombing Of #Hiroshima/#Nagasaki Was A Good Thing

After this posting, I will be putting Darleen Click’s Protein Wisdom on my links page. It is a great site and everyone will do well to follow it.

The reason why I am promoting this great site, is because of this great post about the 70th Anniversary of bombing of Hiroshima:

Anyone … and I mean anyone … that is sniffling about this being an “American atrocity” is a moral cretin. …

My dad enlisted at age 17 in 1946, Army 11th Airborne paratrooper. Because of the A-bomb, he spent ’46-’48 with the occupation Army instead of possibly dead, along with millions of Americans and Japanese who would have died during a prolonged invasion of Japan.

Fuck the people who refuse to understand that.

Now granted, it was a horrific bomb and my heart sinks for every life lost. But Darleen is right that a prolonged invasion of Japan would have been even MORE horrific. My grandfather was too young and was just an Army MP in Germany after the war ended, but his brother was in the Pacific theatre and, through the grace of God, made it out the other side. Both might have been sent, and killed, if we had invaded Japan. Bloodshed, rape, and destruction across Japan would also not have sit well with anyone.

It also showed the world the horrific nature of Nuclear Weapons in general. If we didn’t have those images from the bombing of Hiroshima and Nagasaki, I personally don’t think we could have come out the other end of the Cold War.

Now if you think what we did was bad, think about letting Iran have nuclear weapons. We used the nuclear weapons to end a war and prevent an invasion. Iran wants to use nuclear weapons to wipe an entire people off this earth and jump-start the end times. But I digress…

Despite everything, the bombing of Hiroshima and Nagasaki was indeed a good thing. It doesn’t balance out (nothing ever does), but it did saved untold and uncountable lives.

Well, see ya’ later!

#Walker2016: @ScottWalker’s #IranNuclearDeal Position

I was writing this article yesterday to address this topic, when Allahpundit wrote this article and dared me, DARED ME, to quote him. Or was that the voice in my head? Whichever:

This sounds to me like one of those disagreements that tend to pop up in primaries where two candidates with verrrrry similar views on a policy try to sharpen up their differences by digging in on a proxy issue instead. Is the Iran agreement bad? Terrible, says (JEB) Bush; awful, says (Scott) Walker. Should it be rolled back? Most definitely, says Bush; you betcha, says Walker. When should it be rolled back? Aha – Walker wants to get cracking on January 20th, 2017 while Bush is content to wait until March 2017 or so, when his Secretaries of State and Defense have been confirmed. You can understand why they’d split on that point. Bush wants to show voters that he’s more deliberate on foreign interventions than his brother was – even though George W. waited weeks after 9/11 to invade Afghanistan and then waited for an AUMF from Congress before going to the UN on Iraq. Walker, meanwhile, wants to reassure righties concerned about his lack of foreign policy expertise that he’s so on the ball when it comes to Iran, so keenly aware of the danger that nuclearization poses, that he’d be prepared to skip the inauguration balls if need be to plan an air attack instead. Essentially, he’s signaling knowledge and competence here by stressing his commitment to early action.

Damn you, Allahpundit, for writing a better summation than I could ever write!

Anyone who knows me knows that I hate populism. It is nasty and often just full of emotion. There is no policy, only a talking point to get votes. However I am forgiving the “populist” talking point and I’m siding with Scott Walker here for a number of reasons.

The first of which, Iran is causing most of the blood shed in the Middle East right now. They should be considered a rouge terrorist state and we should have no dealings with them whatsoever. There is no debate that Iran is a bad actor and Gov. Scott Walker isn’t going to pretend otherwise. Waiting and quibbling about “when” you are going to tear up the deal only shows indecisiveness.

Iran often chants “Death To America/Israel” and they are still doing it even after the deal was made. So I am not willing to wait around to see if they will make good on that threat. I am assuming Gov. Scott Walker doesn’t want to find out either.

I mean, come on! Even Sec. John Kerrey is upset at the comments:

U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry said a speech by Iranian Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei on Saturday vowing to defy American policies in the region despite a deal with world powers over Tehran’s nuclear programme was “very disturbing”.

“I don’t know how to interpret it at this point in time, except to take it at face value, that that’s his policy,” he said in the interview with Saudi-owned Al Arabiya television, parts of which the network quoted on Tuesday.

“But I do know that often comments are made publicly and things can evolve that are different. If it is the policy, it’s very disturbing, it’s very troubling,” he added.

Ayatollah Khamenei told supporters on Saturday that U.S. policies in the region were “180 degrees” opposed to Iran’s, at a speech in a Tehran mosque punctuated by chants of “Death to America” and “Death to Israel”.

But Sec. John Kerrey and President Barack Obama are going full speed on this deal! What?! No!! Really bad idea, you guys!!

They kidnapped our people for 444 days, the Quds Force killed our people in Iraq, and that was just the beginning of the death and murder they have cause up until this point. They are pretty much the embodiment of “Death Here On Earth” right now and we are handing them the keys to Nuclear Armament. There is no waiting about tearing up this “non-binding” agreement and Governor Scott Walker understands this fact. Walker should then go to Jordan, Kurdistan, Israel, Saudi Arabia, Egypt, and forge his own agreement. Get peace deal with Israel and the rest of them, then ask what weapons, intelligence, and money they will all need to defeat these Shi’ite motherfuckers once and for all. I would tell them they will get UNLIMITED support in defeating Sunni extremism too.

Well, see ya’ later!

Outrageous: @SenatorMenendez’s #PoliticalProsecution Well Underway

I’m brimming with so much outage and anger right now, it’s not even funny:

The Justice Department is preparing to bring criminal corruption charges against New Jersey Sen. Robert Menendez, alleging he used his Senate office to push the business interests of a Democratic donor and friend in exchange for gifts.

People briefed on the case say Attorney General Eric Holder has signed off on prosecutors’ request to proceed with charges, CNN has learned exclusively. An announcement could come within weeks. Prosecutors are under pressure in part because of the statute of limitation on some of the allegations.

And we all know why:

Senator Menendez gives legitimate and bipartisan opposition to President Obama’s “Peace With Dangerous Iranian And Cuban Thugs” policy. We on the right turned these allegations upside-down and inside-out and only now, after two long years, does the Justice Department bring criminal corruption charges? I might not agree with Senator Menendez on a lot of issues, but the timing on this just stinks to high heaven. This has all the hullmarks of a political prosecution to silent a political opponent.

I am going to break with my conservative brothers and sisters, and side with Senator Menendez here. I rather beat him at the ballot box than use trumped-up corruption charges to force him to resign.

Well, see ya’ later!
