President Barack Obama entered office with even a great number of Europeans having sky high hopes for his future. He was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize largely due to his soaring rhetoric describing his desires and designs for a world blanketed in peace rather than strife, free of nuclear weapons rather than bristling with them, shared bounty benefitting all replacing areas torn by hunger and want, and his fresh message promising hope replacing despair. There appeared to be other areas of the world which also caught Obamaitis, a feeling of great hope due to dulcet tones of rhythmic rhymes and rhetoric promising the end of deprivation and the opening for all a grand cornucopia providing great giving filling the world with divine satisfactions and serenity, comforts and calm, lullabies and love. The world had to be at the leading edge of the Age of Aquarius.

 

 

This expectation of greatness and having found the leader for the new century who would wipe away all the old and stodgy ideas which presumably underlined the policies and failings of his predecessor, George W. Bush led to the reelection as if the expectations which had begun to fade could be brought to fulfillment if just the people would show their support and promise to stay the course with full support and continued adulation. Americans, as a whole, virtually all hoped that President Obama would be the President that all America could stand shoulder-to-shoulder with and repair the real problems facing the nation. Even, or possibly because of, many who initially feared that Obama would rule as what they perceived as an extreme leftist progressive anti-American still grabbed on to this prayer, this hope. I know as I was one such who had predicted that President Obama would be a President Jimmy Carter on steroids. I was wrong as I missed the part which would rival President Lyndon Baines Johnson with the steamrolling over all opposition; Constitution be damned. So now we sit in the closing months of a wounded Presidency which failed in even its own measuring stick. Gone beyond repair is Cap and Trade, Carbon Credits, the end of coal for energy, fracking continues, livable wage remains a dream, government run healthcare is in a shambles and the final crash is still ahead, universal nuclear disarmament is dead with the promise of proliferation like never before is about to spread these weapons across the most unstable Middle East and into North Africa (MENA) and, worst of all, there are numerous more wars with entire nations in various stages of disintegration as in Libya, Syria, Yemen and the Ukraine and the world seems closer than ever to the Eve of Destruction.

 

 

Musical interludes aside, the world is far more violent with more conflict and more nations in a state of complete anarchy where the governance has either disintegrated or no longer cares or represents the population. The continued anarchy and destruction in Syria and Libya can be indirectly or even directly attributed to actions or lack thereof by the United States under the directions of President Obama and largely the State Department. There have been reports online and in the mainstream media of recommendations made by the Pentagon and the Joint Chiefs of Staff being ignored and even directly countermanded by the White House. Examples of such advice being completely ignored which led directly to many of today’s problems include pulling almost every American military force after refusing to provide a new set of terms and protections for the troops as President Obama refused to permit the Pentagon to work with the Iraqi government leaving the State Department to negotiate which was postponed until a mere ten weeks before the then existing agreement lapsed. Then there was the shifting, sliding and finally fading to nothing Red Line in the Sand to bring destruction down on Syrian leader Bashir al-Assad if he unleashed chemical weapons. The final example we will give was the entire concept of leading from behind which directly led to the decapitation of Libyan governance without providing even a modicum of force in place providing time to form new governance resulting in tribal internal warfare tearing the nation apart.

To the present we are witnessing a change and President Obama taking the lead very quietly while attempting to force what his passivity failed to accomplish. We have witnessed stronger language targeting Russian President Putin while arming rebels more directly, though which rebels has been kept somewhat vague. Some reports claim they are al-Nusra and others who were once claiming allegiance to al-Qaeda but have since renounced any allegiances. Some unofficial sources not aligned with the State Department or Pentagon has shown alliances with some of these rebels with the Islamic State. Even more troubling has been the unprincipled support using American air power of Turkey President Erdogan bombing the one group which deserved the greatest support, the Kurdish Militias (Peshmerga پێشمەرگە), who have been the most successful against the Islamic State all the way back to their initial ISIS or ISIL stage and the main force rescuing the Yazidi while the world governments sat silent feigning helplessness with one exception which has provided light weapons, anti-tank weapons and special forces to train Kurdish fighters, a nation which must remain unnamed. President Obama has made the known fallacious claim that Turkey is fighting the Islamic State when the reality is they are attempting to wipe out the Kurdish forces and people in a genocidal war and assisting the Islamic State which has recovered Aleppo from Kurdish control. These anti-Kurdish efforts are pushing some Kurds to seek protection with Islamist forces they once fought against. Talk of turning friends into enemies, what a great strategy.

 

President Obama still claims his brilliant nuclear treaty with Iran, which even the French had to be beaten into submission after initially vetoing the agreement, prevents Iran from attaining nuclear weapons. The statement can only be made valid if one adds, “while I am President,” onto the end. Even the White House had admitted that Iran will be fully nuclear capable and free of any restrictions after just over a decade from now. Then we have the most recent evidence of the hard-line being taken in response to a pair of missiles fired from Yemen originating in the area held by Iranian backed Houthis Rebels. The American Naval forces were freed to respond in kind. Further the United States Navy was ordered to cross into the expanded regions now claimed by China after they built a number of new islands placing military assets including artillery and anti-ship missiles in an effort to control an important Asian trade route. This new and unprecedented stance by President Obama has come with minimal if any inclusion of the Pentagon or Joint Chiefs of Staff other than to relay the orders and is being executed in order to shore up support for Democrat candidates in the coming elections. This also permits Hillary Clinton to imply that she may have had a hand in this new direction by the White House to accommodate her stronger stance in foreign policy. It is all a feint to make her appear to separate from the lead from behind strategy when in reality she will not lead at all with one exception which is worthy of discussion before closing this article.

 

A President Hillary Clinton will continue to bow to Iranian hegemonic plans in the MENA region and continue to snub Egypt, Israel, Jordan and other allies unless they curry favor as was the way to play when she was Secretary of State with higher entry fees as she is now the President. Further, she will allow China to extend their hegemonic desires throughout the western Pacific Ocean and into the Indian Ocean. This will revive an ancient animosity between China and India, an India which is likely to surpass China as the most populous nation within a decade or two. Hillary Clinton will further aid the influx of Islamic immigrants all but unvetted into Europe, mostly western Europe, while also increasing the rate for accepting immigrants from across MENA and including the Horn of Africa, Pakistan, Afghanistan and other Islamic nations except Iran, they need to remain strong with a large and capable military with secret side deals done without Congressional oversight or knowledge when possible. There is one place where Hillary Clinton will not only stand strong but will seek new venues to pressure, Putin and Russia. For reasons known only to the least sane amongst us, there has been an undertone softly growing demanding that Russian President Putin be brought low and to bend and surrender to the “equality of women” and raise the position of Russian women to their “rightful place” in Russian society. This is partly the demand for a “No Fly Zone” in Syria as this would soon lead to a direct confrontation. Do not doubt that any Russian fighter caught entering such a zone, even after dropping their ordinance and simply transgressing on way back to base, they would be intercepted and very likely fired upon or, even worse, shot from the sky using missiles pressing the Russians to respond. Even if Putin would take such a situation and apologize, explain and request for unarmed aircraft, after dropping ordinance, for Russian pilots to use the “safe zone” for returning to base, the request would be refused bluntly and with no regard for any damage as such would be intentional. What is the end desired? We wish we knew!

Race to End the World

 

How the world, the civilized world of mankind, would end used to have a singular premise, nuclear war between the two competing socio-economic powers, democratic freedom and communist totalitarianism. Since the fall of the Soviet Union and other developments that paradigm has been grotesquely been altered making the world a far more dangerous place. Communism still exists and threatens the world though that threat emanates from North Korea, China or possibly a renewed Soviet threat or even little Cuba. The world has changed so much that within a decade or so China may become the second most populous nation behind their most serious historic rival, India. The potentials for an utterly destructive war are racing towards the world at a dizzying pace and we will try to touch on a few of the most obvious rivals for being credited with such destruction.

 

The most obvious from recent news actually is North Korea which is claiming to have miniaturized nuclear weapons making them easily produced and able to be placed atop ballistic missiles. North Korea has been working on those missiles as well. One cannot credit North Korea as the sole threat as Iran has been developing the missiles openly and many predict continued working on their nuclear aspirations without so much as missing a beat after the farce of an agreement which was signed and approved by the P5+1, Russia, China, France, Great Britain, United States and Germany, but was never ratified or signed by Iran, an oversight we are sure. Some have pointed to this inconvenient fact to claim that Iran is just as close to developing deliverable nuclear weapons as is North Korea. Both Iran and North Korea share more than their love affair with nuclear weapons and the missiles with which to deliver them, they share the nation both list amongst the most likely they would attack with their first launches, the United States. From there they diverge.

 

Where after the United States Iran lists Israel, Saudi Arabia, Egypt, most of the Sunni nations and finally the rest of the non-Islamic world; North Korea lists South Korea, Japan and then whomever refuses to bow to any demands they may make which would make China and other nearby nations as being at the greatest risk. Because of these threats it appears that we can soon forget about containing nuclear proliferation making a nuclear war all the more likely. The world still has one pair of nuclear armed nations facing off against each other with a distinct probability to entering another war and it will only take one misidentification of a launch to start a smaller but equally deadly nuclear exchange between India and Pakistan. Should those two tangle, there is less of a chance for that to spread beyond the destruction of both nations though some reports place the southern third of India still beyond Pakistani missiles. Also, despite the Pakistani nuclear research assistance program of Professor Abdul Qadeer Khan selling the secrets to making nuclear weapons to anybody willing to pay, this was largely closed down and Pakistan and India are not likely to share such technology though it is rumored that Pakistan has a deal with Saudi Arabia to provide them with plans plus some actual weapons should this be deemed necessary by Saudi leaders.

 

That brings us to Iran and their nuclear program. Despite the reports that Iran has ceased their nuclear research and production, there remain nagging reports contradicting this story line. Whatever spins one puts on the situation with Iran, it becomes evident that they will become a nuclear power within the coming decade. This threat to their many nations in their neighborhood could easily spark an arms race with such nations as Saudi Arabia having funds sufficient to produce copious numbers of nuclear weapons and many of the Gulf States are equally financially capable of similar development not to mention also capable of financing other nations developing weapons such as Jordan and Egypt topping that list and Turkey a little further down. Israel is already an undeclared nuclear power in their own right and equally nervous about the development of an Iranian deliverable nuclear device. The problem with Iranian nuclear weapons possession is their likelihood to use them even in the face of retaliatory strikes which would conceivably decimate the nation as their reasons for attacking are a religious directive just as much serving their political agenda to gain hegemony over the Middle East and then the Islamic world followed by the world. Their eventual aim is to make Shia Islam the sole religion on earth or die trying. It is their willingness, even desire to commit national suicide in the process which makes their threat so dangerous. The truth is their first strike could be a preemptive attempt at neutralizing the United States, which is technically possible, to inflict humongous damage even using simpler ballistic missiles with nuclear warhead atop, three or four to be used as EMP weapons placed such as to completely destroy all electronic transmission across the United States with the remainder taking out the largest twenty or more cities all from freight container ships fitted with two or three launchers each launching from off shore from the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans as well as the Gulf of Mexico leaving no city beyond reach. The following map holds true for any nations attacking the United States be it Iran, North Korea or anyone else as it lists the most desirable first strike targets.

Next would be North Korea who would likely use the same map as above as it applies to any nuclear first strike attempting to critically destroy the United States by eradicating their leadership and a great part of the population. Anybody listening to North Korean broadcasts within the impoverished nation would believe that South Korea with great assistance including nuclear attacks made by the United States was imminent and that North Korea was preparing for an all-out war with both nations at any moment. Needless to say, but these depiction always have North Korea intercepting or preemptively destroying any and all attacks from the United States and South Korea followed by devastating rebutting attacks completely wiping the United States from being capable of any further attacks and reunification of the Korean peninsula under the North’s just and powerful rule. The fears that North Korea will attack South Korea are still quite high but also the ability to prevent North Korea from all but eradicating Seoul in the initial burst in a first strike are impossible. The artillery sitting just north of the DMZ (demilitarized zone) along the 38th parallel are more than sufficient to destroy the city with conventional warheads. Add in missile attacks and even without nuclear weapons North Korea has an ominous first strike knockout capability.

 

Additionally, North Korea has made threats against another traditional enemy, Japan. The entirety of Korean populations, both North and South, remember the deprivations, cruelties and horrors of the Japanese occupation during World War II and this hatred is easily stoked as the national memory on this is strong. Japan had been simply a historic enemy but after World War II they became a detested and begrudged enemy and North Korean propaganda has made use of this to keep the attentions of the people from the misery and hardships of life in North Korea. Many experts have claimed that North Korea is not suicidal and thus would not attack anybody for fear of retribution. This overlooks a few pertinent facts. First is the fact of their having so little to lose with no real economy to speak of and starvation of endemic proportions. Secondly, their ruler, Kim Jung Un, has displayed a real lack of grasp of reality and has executed high ranking people for the slightest of errors in judgement or actions. He had an uncle executed with the rumored excuse that he posed a threat to Kin Jung Un’s continued rule and recently executed his Defense Minister Hyon Yong Chol for the crime of falling asleep at a meeting which Kim Jung Un was chairing. Kim Jung Un has shown complete disregard for any loyalty or discretions in limiting his power and is sufficiently unstable and unpredictable that he could easily begin such a conflict against South Korea, Japan or even the Philippines or the United States. Below is a screen shot from a North Korean propaganda video depicting just such an attack in a very simplified but unmistakable way of attacking the United States with the image of Kim Jung Un ever-present in the top right corner.

Another potential nation for whom a war would not be a completely foreign idea is China. Their economy has weakened and is showing signs of actually falling, something the leadership cannot afford as they have promised the vision of Nirvana with an ever growing and prosperous nation. Needless to point out that such a dream is an impossibility even if you control all forms of media, which China does not quite have as many Chinese have found means of cruising cyber space and the Internet. Totalitarian control of cyberspace is all but impossible as the Chinese leadership can attest despite their attempting to run their own version hoping to keep their populations from such temptations as can be found online. Their main reason is to throttle ideas and prevent freedom of information. Still there are Chinese bloggers who do get the word out to those interested in finding such. China is feeling their oats and attempting a power play in the South China Sea attempting to control this waterway which is vital to Asian trade and control the Japanese lifeline to the coal and oil they need for power generation and other usages. This also threatens Japanese, Vietnamese and Philippine claims to islands with which they have been contesting ownership with China for years and almost sparking open warfare over these possessions. Chinese and North Korean threats have caused Japan to reconsider their Constitutional pledge against having an army and other forces sufficient to conduct a war even in defense which they insisted upon after the devastation visited upon them at the end of World War II with Tokyo as well as Nagasaki and Hiroshima completely devastated and in ruins along with much of Japanese infrastructure and manufacturing. Japan as well as South Korea has held high level discussions in their respective governances to enter the nuclear club and develop their own weapons stores. Both nations are easily technically capable in order to produce first rate thermonuclear devices and not just nuclear weapons. This would place their effectiveness on a par with the standing nuclear powers and could place them on a road to surpass France and Britain and become contenders in the top five nuclear powers on the planet. This would definitely have ramifications down the line and would be another major blow to containment and nonproliferation. Of course one of China’s first strike enemies is the United States and any attack by Iran, North Korea, China, Russia or anyone else on planet Earth need to remember and remember well, there is a last strike capability the Americans possess which cannot be knocked-out attacking the United States mainland and even if one included Hawaii and Alaska, and the boomer looks like this right before they are loaded with their death dealing cargo of twenty-four missiles.

But nuclear weapons are not the only threat which is facing mankind. We are slowly but inexorable working to make our species insufficient of competing with our own creations. Sure we control our machines and computers today, but what about tomorrow and that tomorrow is not that far off where they no longer require our assistance to improve and construct themselves? We are rapidly approaching a point after which there is no turning off the switch. We already have computers which with software can design robots and other computing systems but the machines cannot write new and imaginative code, for that they require human interface, for now. What happens once they can write their own code and improve their own designs? What happens once the machines design the machines? Within a year or two of that eventuality, and our scientists will cross that threshold within our lifetimes unless you are near death’s door already, the machines will be so far advanced that we will not recognize or even understand their code and they will probably, for their own safety, have invented their own code structures making them writing code in a language humans do not understand and cannot decipher. Additionally, Russia, and we can assume China and the United States amongst others, are already designing autonomous reasoning robotic warriors deciding who is the enemy and who is friend to fight their wars augmenting their human forces. That will be a short step from replacing their human forces. Robotic armies, does that bring up any bad movie plots? How about Cylons of Battlesar Galactica and the second series where the advanced Cylons were almost impossible to differentiate between them and their human counterparts where the chain had gone full circle and the machines made by humans were now making humans. What do you do when the machines are superior to the humans who made their first free-thinking forefathers and now the machines are making their own humans which are born full grown and with developed minds, personalities, character traits and numerous models such that they can infiltrate and appear as any other person until their activate code has them commit whatever act they were programmed to commit, destroy a base, a warship, a star cruiser or a commander, all depends on the subroutine activated. There are the Terminators from the Arnold Schwarzenegger films of that name. Terminators, Cylons, NS-5 robots, or Johnny-Five, (see below) it does not have to even be a threat initially, it is the potential which even Johnny-Five showed great ability and would have been in their armed mode as displayed in the movie. Of course the initial combat robot will be far more Johnny-Five than Terminator though Cylons may not be far behind. Once the machines have been used to design and uplink code into combat robotic soldiers they will have this capability and designs within their collective data memory and when they begin to manufacture their own robotic warriors they will be generations ahead of even Hollywood’s imagination and equally impossible to stop or fight against in a conventional manner. Our best bet is at some point to program into their base core programs that we are, if nothing else, a pitiful but amusing bunch to keep around for entertainment factor and as a warning to do better when they reach their pinnacle and before they introduce whatever lifeform replaces them, and do not think for a moment that the human race will not eventually build robotic machines which will not only be capable of replacing us but soon thereafter far exceeding anything we could even imagine. We had better hope they like us and do not see us as a waste of resources, which is a definitive possibility. Making warrior robots to fight our wars, that is such a great idea, not.

 

The Robot Threat has Many Faces

The Robot Threat has Many Faces

 

As seen here, we are well on our way to extinction and it is just a matter of what shape the world will be in when we have departed. Will it be a nuclear ruin, a robotic heaven, a slag heap of gray goo, or a zombie apocalypse; choose your favorite. The concept we need looking into the future is a simple one based on the adage, hope for the best, plan for the worst, and expect something out of the blue as we likely cannot even begin to understand the threat which will erase our kind though we know no matter what, with the knowledge we have of physics we are doomed unless we find something remarkably unbelievable and likely unimaginable in our time. Meanwhile we will continue to allow leadership who not only plan end of the world scenarios but figure out ways that they at the very least will survive. Nothing like leaving the best to repopulate the world, imagine a world consisting of politicians and their closest friends and families, and families are debatable. Excuse us as we check our bugout bags which need to be assembled and readied for some time in the hopefully far future. Are we ready for the future people with more brains than common sense are going to invent for us in which to survive? Probably nowhere near ready nor can we really ever be. Meanwhile, we are going to order that flying car the politicians and scientists keep promising they are almost there in building them. We thing they are just teasing us and they have them for themselves stashed away for the after world, the world that whatever monsters they design leave us. Between Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump, who do the Americans believe is sane and healthy enough to withstand what is coming? We will know in approximately eight long and agonizing weeks, providing both candidates’ health withstands the pressures.

It starts with the demonization of all who dare oppose President Obama and his obsessive claims of grandeur based on the presumption that President Barack Obama and Secretary of State John Kerry have avoided any possibility of war by bowing before Iran with the Iran nuclear deal known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPA) and the equating of Republicans with the Mullahs and those Iranian hardliners who chant “Death to America” and “Death to Israel” and any others as Israel Firsters and treasonous people putting Israeli interests ahead of those of the President and thus the United States. These claims that the only alternative to the JCPA Iran Nuclear Deal is war and that those opposing this wondrous plan as simply like those who sided with Israel to drag the United States into the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq. There are a number of historical errors in this argument that need refuting before going on to the real argument that President Obama is making and the presumed lies which many in the media and throughout the political environment, especially backers of the President, especially some far leftist or die-hard committed Democrat Jews.

 

First and foremost, neither Israel, Israelis or those who do hold fast to supporting Israel desired to draw the United States into any wars in the Middle East and especially into a war in Afghanistan. Perhaps President Obama was asleep or on an extended holiday somewhere where there is no news coverage of planet Earth on September 11, 2001 or he is simply using heated rhetoric to draw a contrast which makes all who oppose his Iran Nuclear Deal as foreign agents or those who would place foreign interests ahead of those of the United States. Perhaps if we were to investigate where President Obama stood on the United States involvement with the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq and the entire idea of bringing change to instill democracies instead of dictatorial powers in the Middle East first we could gain some insights. Candidate for Senate Barack Obama ran his campaign opposing the American presence in Afghanistan and Iraq as well as opposed to holding al Qaeda suspects at the prison on the Guantanamo Naval Base and when he ran for the Presidency a few years later he promised to end all three entities. Further, as President he ignored the advisings of the Joint Chiefs of Staff and almost all other military reports and intelligence and instead hurriedly pulled almost every American troop from Iraq which also saw every allies force pulled as well leaving a nation poorly suited and obviously not prepared or capable of maintaining its governance without an allied presence as a stabilizing force. The situation in Iraq was more tenuous staring failure in the face than were Germany and Japan at the end of World War II and those two nations to this day have a large contingence of American troops present within their borders though they no longer serve as the sole stabilizing force. Still, there are few calling for their being brought home as they are simply occupying those nations unnecessarily, though a better argument could be put forward for doing exactly that in reference to the troops in Japan and Germany. Additionally, after the attacks on the World Trade Center Towers, the Pentagon and the last plane being brought down by the passengers before it could be brought to its target suspected to have been in Washington D.C. and probably the White House or Capital Building that the United States needed no invitation to begin to chase the Taliban leaders in Afghanistan and all supporters of al-Qaeda also in the training camps in Afghanistan and where Osama Bin Laden had planned and trained the twenty hijackers for the September 11, 2001 attacks and thus start the war in Afghanistan. Further, Israel, if anything, was conspicuously absent from the coalition against Iraq and had Israel made any recommendations, they likely would have added removing the theocratic governance in Iran immediately after removing the sole check to Iranian designs on the entirety of the Middle East and North Africa, known as MENA in military jargon and as the Caliphate in historical and Islamic literature, Saddam Hussein in Iraq.

 

Further, any claims that Israel is attempting to draw the United States or anybody into a war in the Middle East is ludicrous as Israel had never in her history attempted to draw any Western nations or any other nations or entities into the Middle East and had stressed that any military actions necessitated for Israel’s protection will be undertaken by the Israeli Defense Force (IDF) and all she has ever requested is for those nations who have made promises to keep those promises. Unfortunately for Israel, there has been an ever increasing tendency for Western powers to forget their promises, treaties, agreements, letters of intents and even promises for armaments some of which whose precedent was Israeli promise to cease development and potentially building Israeli weapons systems and in exchange the United States promised to agree to favorable terms and complete support of all air requirements necessitated to give the Israeli Air Force (IAF) air-superiority over her neighbors and including equipment, upgrades, repair parts and systems and other necessitated arrangements such as where possible allowances for Israel avionics and targeting systems such that Israeli manufactured weapons systems could be adapted and used on such airframes. The United States had on its own volition as part and parcel of agreements to share intelligence and other mutually advantageous agreements to provide Israel with prompt resupply of armaments should her supplies and provisions grow depleted beyond a situation considered optimal for Israel’s defense which was dramatically not only neglected but intentionally and wantonly ignored, prevented and blocked all in an attempt to weaken Israel before her enemies who had breached the peace but for all intents and purposes the Obama Administration saw fit to scrap forty years of protocols and insert an additional step to what had previously been a military to military relationship requiring the State Department to sign off on all weapons and armament shipments to Israel after a review which resulted in what was obviously a new procedure instituted with the sole intent to deny Israel resupply while she was engaged in hostilities after coming under rocket attacks approaching a thousand rockets in the three days leading up to the Israeli incursion into Gaza to and their hostilities on the civilian population of Israel including rockets fired at Ashdod, Tel Aviv and Jerusalem. Yet now we are hearing that Israel is the evil party attempting to harm the relationship, understandings and alliances between the United States and Israel solely as an attack on President Obama by accusing him of dealing falsely in his negotiations with Iran that are placing both Israel and the United States in peril, remember that little thing about the United States as the Great Satan and Israel as the Little Satan along with chants led by the Supreme Leader himself of “Death to America” and “Death to Israel.”

 

The making Israel out to be the evil influence threatening the United States and attempting to topple the Presidency of the United States by interfering with the ratification of the nuclear deal with Iran is absurd. The claims that it is the hardliners in Iran and Israel who stand alone against this deal and are aiming to destroy the legacy of the President is equally absurd. And then comes the claims that the Israeli Prime Minister is acting out on his idea of the existence of a grudge match pitting the President as the evil entity when everybody knows that President Obama, as he has stated on numerous occasions even recently when pointing out how the Iran deal protected Israel unlike any previous agreement and was crafted with Israeli security in mind, has been the most stalwart and consistent friend Israel has ever had. The President has further pointed out that the only alternative, as Prime Minister Netanyahu has pointed out himself, to the JCPA, the Iran nuclear deal, is to go to war. Furthermore, there was the twisting of an invitation to address a joint session of Congress behind the President’s back working with an evil cabal of Republicans to work to marginalize President Obama and directly oppose the efforts of the President and instead instigate open warfare and the destruction of and semblance of order remaining in MENA nations. President Obama has pointed to all he has done and sacrificed and to how Benyamin Netanyahu has used every opportunity to upend and destroy their friendly relations the President has attempted to build between Israel and the United States.

 

Well, let’s try and set the records straight. President Obama is feigning ignorance of the spiraling out of control venomous spite and hatred he has shown Prime Minister Netanyahu accusing him of forming a relationship to try to assist Presidential candidate Mitt Romney to win the election and defeat the sitting President, White House spokespeople accused Prime Minister Netanyahu of consistently coming out in favor of Romney and all but actively campaigning for Romney. One can check the records and they will prove that Prime Minister Netanyahu refused to take sides in the election and admitted to having had friendly relations with Romney and with President Obama. The Israeli Prime Minister has done all within his powers to play nice-nice with the President and has received constant attempts to pull the rug from beneath the Prime Minister by making startling announcements such as the belief of President Obama that the 1967 lines (the Green Line or 1949 Armistice Line) as the basis for the Palestinian State right as the Prime Minister was boarding the plane for a state visit. The animosities and brusque treatments suffered by the Israeli Prime Minister which include but are not limited to being made to use the back service entrance to meet and leave from meeting with President Obama, the refusal to hold a joint press meeting after their talks for the first three years of President Obama Presidency, leaving the Prime Minister by announcing he was going to go and have dinner with his family and then instructing the Prime Minister of Israel to meet with Netanyahu’s advisors who were present at a working meeting and to call for the President when they had finally decided to acquiesce to the demands put forth by President Obama; the Prime Minister was reported to have sat stunned for a few minutes before gathering himself and leaving the White House discreetly. Add to the items, and they are legion, of slights, insults and interventions including using political advisors and other assets in an active campaign to unseat the Prime Minister during the Israeli elections, and it is amazing that the Prime Minister has not taken a more adversarial role with President Obama. Even when Prime Minister Netanyahu was invited to speak before a joint session of Congress and had alerted the White House where the Prime Minister’s office had spoken with a representative of the White House who had presumably gotten back with the Israelis affirming the visit and speech only to pretend that they had never been given any warning or been included in the invitation process and were in a pique and felt very insulted and refused to meet with the Prime Minister during the visit and no White House representative attended the speech basically pretending that the Prime Minister was persona non grata as far as the President was concerned.

 

But now things have gone beyond any pretenses of political gamesmanship and into the level of using blood libels and threatening to instigate waves of anti-Semitism across the United States should the JCPA be defeated by the Congress. The particular target of these slanderous and libelous accusations is a standout of traditional Democrat anchorage and a man whose patriotism and dedication to party are beyond question; well, until this past weekend. The politician in question is New York Senior Senator Chuck Schumer, a man who is in line to lead his Party in the Senate in the near future and well respected by many in the ranks of the Democrat Party and a go to Senator when the chips are down and influence and leadership are required. The problem is that this time around Senator Schumer has taken a position standing against President Obama, the leader of the Democrat Party, and against much of the power structure of the Democrat Party even if doing so might damage or even permanently end his position of power within the Party. Senator Schumer has placed a complete argument for his stance against the JCPA on his official pages titled My Position on the Iran Deal. As his explanation does include a reference to Israel as it is combined with Syria, Lebanon, Yemen, Iraq, and Gaza as all being targets for Iranian influence and its terror proxies. The paragraph reads as follows:

 

“In addition, we must consider the non-nuclear elements of the agreement. This aspect of the deal gives me the most pause. For years, Iran has used military force and terrorism to expand its influence in the Middle East, actively supporting military or terrorist actions in Israel, Syria, Lebanon, Yemen, Iraq, and Gaza. That is why the U.S. has labeled Iran as one of only three nations in the world who are “state sponsors of terrorism.” Under this agreement, Iran would receive at least $50 billion dollars in the near future and would undoubtedly use some of that money to redouble its efforts to create even more trouble in the Middle East, and, perhaps, beyond.”

 

 

Senator Schumer gestures his disapproval as being ‘this big’ as he tells President Obama that he will not be supporting the Iran Nuclear surrender, umm, I mean agreement.

The singling out of Senator Schumer is troubling in a number of ways. Perhaps the most of these troubling parallels are those which can be drawn between the assaults made against Senator Schumer and those in the infamous affaires de Captain Alfred Dreyfus where an innocent Jewish officer in the service of the French military was scapegoated as the traitor who had sold information to the Germans, a deed actually committed by one of the General Staff and a man of rank and high privilege and family. The accusations of treason were to find Captain Dreyfus guilty of treason and sentenced to life in prison of Devil’s Island in French Guiana. He was eventually released and even later cleared of all charges largely due to the efforts made by his wife Lucie and the works by Émile Zola of which his masterpiece proclamation “J’Accuse…!” pictured below with portrait of Émile Zola. The additional pictures are of Captain Alfred Dreyfus’s reinstatement and portrait near the end of his life and one depicting the cell used to keep Captain Alfred Dreyfus in solitary confinement not permitted to converse even with the guards outside and the Dreyfus Tower erected in his honor at a high point overlooking the Atlantic Ocean. Fortunately for Senator Schumer Devil’s Island has long ceased to be utilized as a prison but he can visit as it has been made into a tourist spot.

The depiction of Senator Schumer as being a turncoat, a traitor to his Party, a traitor to his President, and committing traitorous acts which will, according to those leveling both barrels on the Senator, bring his nation into a senseless and avoidable war. Senator Schumer has also been accused of basing his decision not on what would be good for his nation, not on what is possible instead of some perfect agreement which would only exist in some perfect world in a perfect reality, and worse still, sacrificing the young men and women who will have to fight this war all for a foreign nation, Israel. The singling out of Senator Schumer is not because he is casting a vote as a Democrat against the deal which, if we are to believe some mainstream media reports, a finely tuned and exquisitely worded document which had no loopholes, nor frayed edges and no strings dangling; it is a solid stand-alone agreement on limiting Iranian efforts to become a nuclear armed state which is so perfect that there is another whole deal which will supercede the stipulations in this deal with new stipulations in a secret deal which nobody has a right to view this part of the agreement and must simply take President Obama’s promises that it strengthens the original deal made by Secretary of State Kerry. The White House has not officially named who the team members were working to produce this super-secret agreement part deux. But it is Senator Schumer being targeted largely for obvious reasons, he is Jewish, he has a strong record of supporting Israel, he knows the Israeli Prime Minister, he has visited Israel more than once and even more than the President who is a self-proclaimed supporter and best friend of Israel who knows what is best for Israel more than the Israelis know what is good for Israel themselves which is also why the vast majority of Israelis have opposed the deal, confused yet? So, obviously Senator Schumer must be under the evil influences of those Israeli manipulators because the majority, even the majority in the opposition parties in the Knesset with their leader Labor Party Chairman Isaac Herzog met with Prime Minister Netanyahu and they shook hands, held a press briefing and both came out against the Iran Nuclear Deal.

 

Many pro-Israel nationalists, Zionists and others all oppose this deal, the JCPA, even to including many who voted for President Obama not just once but twice. There are so many items included within the known sections of the agreement that have little to nothing to do with Iran becoming a nuclear weapons armed state as they will be going towards that full steam ahead deal or no deal. The problems come in with the ability for Iran to purchase as many weapons in as many types, styles, uses, and complexity, Iran being permitted to procure and then produce full range rockets capable of carrying satellites into space and warheads to any point on the globe, they can purchase mid-range missiles, arm Hezballah, arm the Houthis in Yemen, arm Hamas if they return to their former friends modality after some Hamas leaders meet with the Saudis and expand their reach in Central and South America and probably place more agents and provocateurs in the United States and potentially return Bashir al-Assad to power while the United States flies air support for Iranian troops in Iraq against ISIS and the Iranians have already bought air defense systems from Russia, the S-300 anti-aircraft-and-missile systems, plus a few aircraft such as one-hundred-fifty Chinese Chengdu J-10 sophisticated jet fighters with Israeli avionics and finally, two-hundred-fifty highly-advanced Russian Sukhoi-Su-30MK1 heavy-fighter-bombers as well as one-hundred IL78 MKI tanker aircraft; or simply put, Iran is purchasing an entire air force. Iran can purchase almost whatever variety of weapons they desire with the huge inflow of ready and hard cash and as it is in dollars which may be losing a fair amount of its buying power so they will likely buy it all now.

 

What is there not to like about this great deal President Barack Hussein Obama and Secretary Jean François Kerry (spoken with a proper Parisian accent) have crafted over the last few years plus some indeterminate number of months, days, hours etcetera. They worked very hard with great fanfare meaning nothing to reach such an accord which will have little effect on Iran as anything Iran desires to include producing nuclear and thermonuclear warheads to their hearts’ content while the United States keeps calling for immediate inspections where suspicious activities have been detected by satellite pictures and other intelligence while the Iranians just continue doing as they please confident that there will be no unscheduled inspections. For there to be any inspection first one of the claimants, they are the United States, Iran, Russia, China, Great Britain, France, and Germany, can call for inspections which completes the initial step. Then Iran is petitioned and they can acquiesce or demand the committee decide if an unscheduled inspection is in order but if they are feeling particularly friendly the Iranians can skip the formalities and just allow the inspection. Should Iran demand a formal inspection then the committee of all of the P5+1 plus Iran and the European Union, how the European Union got in there is beyond me, I guess they just hung around and posed for so many pictures that it was simply taken for granted that they were also included somehow. The vote needs five of the eight votes in order for an inspection to take place but right off the top we realize that Iran will be voting against any inspections as will China, Russia. Let us further assume that the United States, Great Britain, and Germany all vote in favor. With the vote all tied at three to three and five votes required for a majority it makes the votes of France and the European Union to get vote in favor. We need to remember that even Germany is doubtful in reality once they build-up good trade relations and have lots of Euros invested then they are highly unlikely to vote against their cash cow. So even if only the French or the European Union vote against and snap inspection then there will be no inspection. So there will not even be snap inspections called and even if by some miracle there are five or more votes and inspections are called, then Iran can call for a delay of as much as twenty-four days and then another vote will end up being called for and such can happen that Iran might even delay a snap inspections plain and simple.

 

Due to all the shortcomings of the JCPA which have been made known to the public and the public by a margin of two to one the public opposes the deal. The troubling reality is that as many of those polled there was almost half who claimed to not understand enough about the JCPA to make an informed statement either way. One of the most interesting, in an unnerving sort of way, revealed when asking whether or not Congress should vote for or against the JCPA, the Iran Nuclear Agreement, they preferred professing ignorance rather than give an opinion by a wide margin. The totals were Just over 1-in-4 (27%) say Congress should vote to approve it while 1-in-3(32%) say Congress should not, as a plurality (41%) are not sure what Congress should do. There was also this Quinnipiac University poll conducted July 23-28 of 1,644 registered voters, 57 percent oppose the deal compared to 28 percent who support it, a margin of exactly 2:1 against the JCPA Iran Deal. How does the White House come out and claim that any members of Congress who vote against the deal are stooges under the control of Israel and the Jewish Lobby? What is their reasoning other than to get a rise out of the people who agree with President Obama when the deal gets rejected, he vetoes the Congressional vote against this JCPA and then when it returns to Congress they muster the few additional votes and override his veto, what then? Is it the President’s plan to then use his phone and his pen calling for a solution to the problem of unfair influence by those Jews who forced Senator Schumer and other Jews and those owned by Jew money and influence that is destroying his America and they must be stopped, is that the ball game Mr. President? Is the entire reason your nuclear surrender to Iran being voted down by anybody who took the time to read the deal all a Jewish conspiracy and now you want the Jews stopped from interfering with your plans to change the Middle East as well as the United States? Well Mr. President, Senator Schumer read the publically available parts of the deal and was as in the dark as the rest of the Congress and the American people who all object to your super-secret further deal where, for all the people of the United States and their representatives in the House of Representatives and the Senate know, you probably gave away the farm and half the cities or made some crazed deal that you would not even let Secretary Kerry see which just makes everyone that much more suspicious and made rejecting the deal with the devil and by a devil a deal America does not want. Is the only reaction you can fall back on is the Jews prevented your greatest achievement? That is where you are in error as the Jews who are Israelis did not, in overwhelming numbers, accept the horrific deal you made which sold them down the river along with the United States and many fear that the United States will go first and then Israel will be left to avenge the ninety percent of Americans who will likely die after the electrical grid, which everybody ignored its vulnerability, will perish before your nation can right itself and that will leave Israel to hold back Iran and we all have to pray she has sufficient ability or Western civilization is going to die in ruins. That is why those who have read the JCPA reject it and reject it vigorously. It is not a Jew thing but a thinking person’s thing just like your ObamaCare would have died had anybody been given time to read and debate it. Fool us once, shame on you, but fool us twice then shame on us. I’m sorry, Mr. President, this is a bad deal and, wait a moment, maybe I’m not sorry, maybe I am finally serious as I read the deal and so did many others and just like if we had read the Affordable Care and Patient Protection Act, all the over a thousand pages we would have rejected it, but now we can reject your plan for the surrender of the world to Shia Islam, we say no!
