Trump goes nuclear on Iran deal

Published

on

In a move that will doubtlessly give Muslim apologists around the world an apoplexy, President Trump withdrew the United States from the deal made with Iran under the Obama Administration which was theoretically supposed to prevent the world’s largest state-sponsor of terrorism from obtaining a nuclear weapon. Instead, as the President made clear in his announcement, the Iranian regime has gained momentum toward developing nuclear weapons as well as the missile technology needed to deliver warheads around the world.

Calling the deal “defective at its core,” President Donald Trump gave his multitude of reasons to withdraw from the deal and to impose sanctions upon the radical Islamic regime. Trump also made a series of promises that made it clear that he would not tolerate Iran from advancing their nuclear weapons program. He also left the door open to renegotiating the deal in the future, and even seemed confident that Iran WOULD seek such a deal in the future.

Presidents are supposed to remain optimistic, and Trump did a good job in this respect by leaving that door to renegotiating open. However, it is quite possible that the President himself didn’t believe his own optimism. Iran has never negotiated in good faith with the world before, and they are unlikely to start now.

President Trump touted his ongoing success with the North Korean regime to prop up the idea that new sanctions will force Iran back to the bargaining table. On its face, this seems like it could be done. After all, Trump has accomplished on the Korean Peninsula more than six decades worth of Presidents combined.

That said, the circumstances are somewhat different in Iran than they are in North Korea. For one thing, Iran has large oil and natural gas reserves, which allows them to generate foreign currency at a level North Korea cannot come close to matching. Further, while North Korea is controlled by a brutal dictator, we have seen circumstances over the decades where Communist ideology has been overturned in favor of capitalism based simply on the fact that the latter works, and the former does not. Iran, however, is not just dictated by Marxism, but rather by radical Islamic fundamentalism, which has never been overcome except by force of arms.

Only time will tell how all this plays out.

In the meantime, there is, sadly, little the President can do to recoup the billions of dollars given to Iran by his predecessor. That money is gone, and has undoubtedly been used not only to further Iran’s nuclear ambitions, but to fund radical Islamic terrorism across the Middle East and around the world.

What the President CAN do is order a full investigation of the circumstances surrounding the giving of billions of taxpayer dollars to the murderous regime, and if evidence is found of wrongdoing, prosecute those US officials and former officials who had a hand in what is tantamount to treason. While the money will still be gone, having been used for evil, such prosecution could discourage future US Administrations from acting so willfully against the best interests of the American People and the world.

Former White House National Security Advisor Ben Rhodes would be an excellent person with whom to start the investigation, and Secretary John Kerry as well as former President Obama himself may need to be called to account. I, for one, am not holding my breath on the Obama Administration being held to account for any of its multiple crimes, but it WOULD be nice.

Let’s have that ‘conversation’ about guns and why we’re never giving them up

Lets have that conversation about guns and why were never giving them up

#GunPrideMonth is the perfect time for a calm, rational discussion about the true causes of violence.

Our friends on the national socialist Left love to bring up the issue of guns in the context of a ‘serious crisis’. Tying to make it seem as Corey Booker falsely claims that there is a mass shooting every day. Well, its been several days since one of those occurrences, so that is clearly a lie. Even the Washington Post has made it clear that gun homicides have dropped substantially over the past 25 years in this article: Most Americans incorrectly think gun-murder rates have become worse, not better.

However, for the Left they have convince themselves of the righteousness of their causes, so making something up here or lying there is perfectly acceptable to them, never mind that reality shows them to be complete frauds, ‘in the aggregate’.

At least it used to be that way. Now the Liberty Grabber Left has come out of the authoritarian closet with a full court press for socialism and gun confiscation [funny how those two things go hand in hand?]. At this point in time, it’s a case where they haven’t stopped complaining about guns, despite the violence rationale dropping out of the news.

It’s time for a calm and rational conversation about the basic human right of self-defense.

The Liberty grabbers are at a decided disadvantage in having these discussions in a relatively calm environment. It always seems to work best for them when emotions run high and they can run around with the hair on fire screaming ‘we have to do something –anything – about guns, now before we rationally think about it too much’. Well, they usually don’t add that last part, thinking is the last thing they want anyone to do.

The fact is a research study from Northeastern University demonstrated that: Schools are safer than they were in the 90s, and school shootings are not more common than they used to be.  Facts like that don’t help the Liberty Grabber Left in their gun confiscation quest, so such things are ignored. It’s better for them to engage in their usual routine of making things up and repeating them ad nauseam until they are believed as the truth, thanks to the admonitions of socialist luminaries Hitler a Lenin.

A discussion on the underlying causes of violence instead of inanimate objects.

We’ll begin with a video from a year ago from the Warrior Poet Society on Why Gun Control is NOT about GUNS:

[Note that even he mistakenly states that shootings are getting worse.]

He points out that the worse thing we could do is establish so-called ‘Gun-Free’ zones where mass murderers can have free reign. Most mass shootings since 1950 have taken place in ‘Gun-Free’ zones.

This leads to the larger point that even if the Liberty Grabbers got their wish and confiscated every gun from the innocent, the criminals and the government would still have them to prey on people.

Still further, making the point, even if those of evil intent didn’t have guns, they could use other means: explosives, poisons, edged weapons, vehicles..

He makes the last point that this is a recent phenomenon, unheard of 50 or so years ago. This is partly due to the glamorization of these killers in the media.

One change has been in the culture and in our society and the fact that many of these killers have grown up in fatherless homes. An article from last February pointed out that Of the 27 Deadliest Mass Shooters, 26 of Them Had One Thing in Common: fatherlessness.

The Takeaway.

The Liberty Grabber Left would like to have a ‘Conversation’ about gun confiscation. We of the Pro-Liberty Right want to Keep our freedom. Despite the lies of the Left, guns aren’t a growing epidemic. But they do stand in the way of the Socialist-Left attaining their desired authoritarian power. Thus they keep on bleating about the ‘problem’ even though its diminishing in intensity.

The intent here is to have that ‘conversation’ and prove that it’s NOT a question of guns, but of the breakdown in our culture induced by the Left. They would prefer it to be about guns, and how fast and how soon they will be confiscated.

[But only from certain people ]

Article about Imam Mohamad Tawhidi pulled down over threat of lawsuit

Article about Imam Mohamad Tawhidi pulled down over threat of lawsuit

An article that appeared on NOQ Report last week has been removed following threats of a lawsuit. In our current revenue situation, we are not in a position to defend against lawsuits from powerful people like Imam Mohamad Tawhidi, known on Twitter as the “Imam of Peace.”

It should be noted that Tawhidi did not request the article to be pulled, only edited. While I appreciate his position and the cordial way he has handled this from the start, the author of the piece was unable to edit the story in a way that would be satisfactory without changing the premise and conclusion of the article itself. The only recourse was to remove the article altogether.

As much as I hate censorship in just about any situation, prudence is called for in this particular circumstance. Despite incredible growth in traffic – more than triple of what we had in March of this year – revenue has been challenged. Our attempts to be completely crowdfunded have not yielded the dollars necessary to be able to fight lawsuits. I hate most ads but at this point they’re necessary. Even a frivolous lawsuit could be enough to shut the site down, which is why we continue to ask for donations whenever possible.

It’s saddening to have to resort to taking down articles when faced with challenges, but we know if we persevere we will continue to grow. Someday, we will have the clout to fight lawsuits, but for now we are fighting for survival.

This could be a daily headline: ‘Ilhan Omar invokes race card’

This could be a daily headline Ilhan Omar invokes race card

Being anti-Semitic wasn’t getting enough attention for Representative Ilhan Omar, so in recent weeks she’s shifted her standard operating procedure to go from attacking Israel to playing the constant victim and labeling anyone opposed to her as racist. The latest episode of “How Ilhan played the race card today” happened at the ideal place for such things: the far-left Netroots Nation gathering.

DailyWire’s Ryan Saavedra gave the short version as well as a video of the pertinent parts of her speech:

The biggest flaw of Omar’s argument is causation versus correlation. She claims the illegal immigrants are being put in “cages” because they don’t look like the people putting them there. But even if we set aside the false notion that people of color are all against stopping illegal immigration, they aren’t being detained because of the way they look. They’re being detained because the broke the law and attacked the sovereignty of our nation by stealing entry and claiming an asylum status that is reserved for truly oppressed people, not economically challenged people as most of the migrants are.

If a Caucasian family crossed the border illegally, they would be detained just as quickly and with the same rules applied to them. The fact that most who do so are people of color does not mean they’re being detained because of their race.

Omar and her cronies from the Justice Democrats – Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Ayanna Pressley, and Rashida Tlaib – have made it a habit to invoke the race card in every circumstance and regarding every policy. Today is just them on repeat.
