Kerry Warns Israel: Any action will justify Iran’s pursuit of nuclear war

Pamela Geller / Atlas Shrugs

iranObama’s Middle East strategy points to one thing and one thing only — a post-Israel Middle East.

There is no other explanation.

Listening to John Kerry sell this genocidal war pact is like listening to Joseph Goebbels explain the Jewish problem.

“Kerry Warns Israel To Leave Iran Alone,” By Jeff Dunetz, The Lid, July 24, 2015
Secretary of State Kerry took his “selling the crap sandwich” show on the road as he sat down with Matt Lauer of the Today show about the P5+1 deal with Iran. When asked he warned Israel against attacking Iran’s nuclear program either via bombing or cyber attack.
“Well I think that would be an enormous mistake. A huge mistake with grave consequences for Israel and the...

In light of the tragic death of Kate Steinle, who was killed by an illegal immigrant in San Francisco, Congress is debating legislation to deal with so-called sanctuary cities. The thought was that these local ordinances would allow illegal immigrants to report crimes without fear of deportation. Well, this skirting of federal immigration law has reaped some awful results. Yesterday, the House passed legislation that would withhold funds to cities that have passed sanctuary ordinances (via the Hill):
House Republicans passed legislation on Thursday that would deny federal funds to sanctuary cities. 
The bill, passed 241-179, would withhold certain federal law enforcement grants to cities that have policies designed to shelter illegal immigrants from deportation.
Critics of the sanctuary laws say such policies encourage people to immigrate to the U.S. illegally at the expense of citizens.
“A refuge for whom? A sanctuary for whom?” Rep. Trey Gowdy (R-S.C.) said. “A sanctuary for Kate Steinle? Or a refuge for a convicted felon with a 25-year-long criminal history?”
Democrats accused House Republicans of bringing up the bill in part because of real estate mogul and Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump’s focus on illegal immigration and sanctuary cities; they dubbed the bill the “Donald Trump Act.”
“Just a few weeks into his campaign and Donald Trump has a bill on the floor of the House. That is better than some of the senators he’s running against.” Rep. Luis GutiĆ©rrez (D-Ill.) said mockingly.
Republicans denied that Trump had any influence on their decision to bring up the legislation.
“This is a valid concern that we’re voting on today,” said Rep. Tom MacArthur (R-N.J.), who has often broken with his party on immigration in the past and said he finds Trump’s comments offensive. “I’m not going to let Donald Trump dictate my vote.”
With just a year and a half left to go for his time at the White House, President Obama is telling the BBC what his greatest frustration has been as commander-in-chief: having his gun control agenda "stymied."

"If you ask me where has been the one area where I feel that I’ve been most frustrated and most stymied, it is the fact that the United States of America is the one advanced nation on earth in which we do not have sufficient, common-sense gun safety laws – even in the face of repeated mass killings," Obama said. "And if you look at the number of Americans killed since 9/11 by terrorism, it’s less than 100. If you look at the number that have been killed by gun violence, it’s in the tens of thousands...For us not to be able to resolve that issue has been something that is distressing, but it is not something that I intend to stop working on in the remaining 18 months."

First, it is complete nonsense when Obama says the "United States is the one advanced nation on earth in which we do not have sufficient, common-sense gun safety laws." The U.S. has hundreds of gun laws on the books both at the state and federal levels. Further, there are no laws that aren't already in place that could prevent the type of "gun-violence" Obama refers to. Second, when President Obama refers to the "tens-of-thousands" of people killed by "gun-violence," he's being extremely disingenuous by a) failing to point out that majority are suicides b) the majority of the remaining occur in very specific parts of the country like Chicago, a city that has the strictest gun control measures around. Third, Americans should be concerned about what Obama is working on to implement more gun control without Congress. Earlier this week we saw  report about the administration using the Social Security Administration to put people who need help managing their benefits on the no-gun buy list. We've already seen this type of government overreach implemented at Veterans Administration hospitals and clinics across the country.

Finally, it should be noted that a recent Pew Research Center poll shows more Americans believe gun rights should be protected while fewer believe more gun control should be implemented.

Justice Dept Backs Off Criminal Probe Over Hillary's Classified Emails                                                     By Melanie Batley / NEWSMAX

Image: Justice Dept Backs Off Criminal Probe Over Hillary's Classified Emails Attorney General Loretta Lynch's Justice Department has been asked by two inspectors general to launch a probe of Hillary Clinton's handling of classified government information while using a private email account while she was secretary of state.

The New York Times, which was the first to report the development, cited unnamed sources saying that the request was criminal in nature.

The Wall Street Journal reported Friday that a Justice Department official initially confirmed that a criminal investigation had been requested, but later reversed its position without comment.

"The department has received a referral related to the potential compromise of classified information. It is not a criminal referral," said an official.

Inspectors general for the State Department and  Office of the Director of National Intelligence are seeking the investigation after writing two memos on the subject to Patrick F. Kennedy, the under secretary of state for management, copies of which the Times said were provided to it.

Saturday, July 25h, on RIGHT SIDE PATRIOTS on CPR Worldwide Media from 11am to 1pm EST, Craig Andresen and Diane Sori will discuss the latest on Hillary and her oh so many scandals, the erasing of American history, and shoving the Iran deal down John Kerry's throat.
