The Obama administration is lying about the Iran deal

Says... Iran.

The late and unlamented Osama Bin Laden once used the analogy of the strong horse and the weak horse to explain radical Islam's appeal. What we see here is a middling strong horse vying with a nearsighted jackass. No wonder Egypt, Saudi Arabia and Israel are rethinking America's reliability as an ally.

Oops!

I don't check my spam files nearly often enough, and in doing so yesterday, I noticed that some legitimate comments from known commenters somehow got swept up in the spam filter. I have tried to "despam"these commenters so that future comments will appear in their rightful place (particular apologies to Steve at the Pub).

An argument that could well apply to most leftist political and social prescriptions

Kurt Schlichter advances a simple response to gun grabbers:
American gun owners are beginning to respond with a fresh, powerful argument when facing anti-gun liberals. Here it is, in its entirety. Ready?

“Screw you.” That’s it. Except the first word isn’t “Screw.”

It’s not exactly a traditional argument, but it’s certainly appropriate here. The fact is that there is no point in arguing with liberal gun-control advocates because their argument is never in good faith. They slander gun owners as murderers. They lie about their ultimate aim, which is to ban and confiscate all privately owned weapons. And they adopt a pose of reasonability, yet their position is not susceptible to change because of evidence, facts or law. None of those matter – they already have their conclusion. This has to do with power – their power.

The coming tabloid White House

If Hillary Clinton wins, it looks like it will just be one big dysfunctional first family.

Bernie Sanders shoots self in foot

Bernie Sanders, previously considered to be something of a moderate among Democrats on the subject of gun rights, has now gone and exposed himself as just another gun-grabbing progressive. Bob Owens reports:
Sanders is stating directly that he wants to ban all firearms designed for self-defense, and that he regards the Second Amendment as privilege that allows hunting alone… for now.
The Left will never, ever yield on this issue - so stock up while you can.

Ted Cruz denounced Mitch McConnell as a tool of crony capitalists and a liar on the very floor of the U.S. Senate!

Outstanding. We need more politicians who are willing to take the fight directly to the frauds who sit atop the power structure of the GOP.

Update: And to underscore Ted Cruz's point, along comes the U.S. Chamber of Commerce with a plan to target conservative legislators in the primaries.

No, Bob Corker, you don’t get to pretend that you aren’t a big part of this disaster

Ace dismantles Senator Bob Corker’s faux shock at discovering that John Kerry’s deal with Iran is a diplomatic flop of epic proportions and ominous portent.

Failure Theater only works so long as voters are willing to suspend their (natural) belief in the hypocrisy and uselessness of unprincipled, time-serving frauds. I don’t think it’s likely that this suspension of belief will hold up much longer. It will be interesting to see if people like McConnell and Boehner (and Corker) ultimately wind up being retired from public life in spite of, or perhaps precisely because of, their attempts to finesse the conflicts between their presumed base of voters (for whom they are contemptuous) and their big-money donors (for whom they manifest an unseemly solicitousness).

Frankly, I wouldn’t have thought McConnell and Boehner, at least, were good enough actors to pull off their con against the conservative base for as long as they have, but who knows? Maybe they’re just exceptionally good pork-barrelistas , or it could be that their political opponents have been extraordinarily inept.

In any sane society, this would be a “case closed” moment

J. Christian Adams has written a piece on the crimes committed by illegal aliens in just one state (Texas) and the findings are horrifying:
According to the analysis conducted by the Texas Department of Public Safety, foreign aliens committed 611,234 unique crimes in Texas from 2008 to 2014, including thousands of homicides and sexual assaults.
Elsewhere in the article, the number of homicides, alone, is placed at nearly 3,000.

That’s almost 3,000 human beings, most of whom would likely still be walking around today if it hadn’t been for our porous border and idiotic enforcement laxity.

"The shock therapy was very beneficial, once they had me properly grounded."

America: land of the cowed and home of the lame

More evidence that we're toast.

In the wake of the murders of the four Marines and a sailor by a coddled, privileged jihadist punk, the military brass - yes, ours - has advised recruiters to close the blinds in their offices.

Inspired! You see, your average Muslim fanatic is so dumb that, when he sees the blinds are closed, he'll just assume there's nobody home.

And the Marines - the freakin' U.S. Marines, for cryin' out loud - have been instructed not to wear their uniforms in recruiting offices.

Right, right. Jihadi Yusef comes in, sees a guy dressed in a sport coat sitting at a desk behind a pile of recruiting brochures, and withdraws baffled and dismayed.

All of this because, apparently, we can't trust our own warriors with guns.

Oh, and President Jughead McPinko Mulligan can't see his way clear to fly the flag at half-staff to honor our dead because we wouldn't want people to get the idea that just because Islam harbors tens of thousands of psychopathic killers, and hundreds of thousands, if not millions, of fellow travelers, that it's not a religion of peace.

Forget the shores of Tripoli; we need a Stephen Decatur to sail up the damned Potomac.

Peace on the souls of these dead Marines, and on their families.

Meanwhile, MSNBC refuses to be distracted from the real issues of the day.

Stupid on stilts

Bummer. Our new Iranian partners will probably continue funding terrorist operations (or, as Susan Rice calls it, "bad behavior"; naughty boys!).

Great negotiating, by the way. The Obama administration couldn't even get some American prisoners (i.e., hostages)released (but don't bring that up in a press conference; the preshizzle gets a little huffy when he's asked embarrassing questions).

Update: Maybe I should let the commenters write this blog.

First, the irrepressible R-man:

"Also...the preshizzle gets a little embarrassing when he's asked tuffy questions."

Next, the feisty Rebecca:

Watch me TOTALLY DESTROY Richard Trumka in just five words

Ace has a post up mocking Rolling Stone's total suck-up praise for Richard Trumka, who supposedly "destroyed" Scott Walker with six words.

And those words would be? "Scott Walker is a national disgrace."

That's it. Those are the six words that have effectively ended Scott Walker's pursuit of the White House. Spoken by Richard Trumka, who literally looks like a cartoon of a corrupt labor leader.

Trumka, your career is about to flame out and leave nothing but ashes to be scattered by the wind. Here goes:

Richard Trumka is an a**hole.

No, but a closet socialist always stands a decent chance

Via Instapundit, this quote from Sen. Claire McCaskill of Missouri on the outlook for Bernie Sanders’ presidential aspirations: “I just don’t believe that someone who is a self-described socialist is going to be elected to be president of the United States.” True; Barry had to blow quite a bit of smoke to cover his actual intentions.

Perhaps we’re not even talking so much about garden variety socialism anymore, whether admitted or not. The Obama/Democrat model is so toxically partisan, lawless and dependent on the use of increasingly strong-armed government force, so thoroughly committed to the idea of the supremacy of the state, so utterly disdainful of individual liberty, we’re really starting to veer into the realm of soft fascism – and who believes that if this trend is not reversed that the fascism will remain “soft”?

This is the real rationale for the Second Amendment.

What’s that old saying?

Something about closing the barn door after the horse has gotten out: “Katherine Archuleta, Director of Office of Personnel Management, Resigns”.

Of course, you have to wonder if the barn door is, in fact, closed. Or if we even have a barn anymore.

Update: Archuleta's "exploding cigar".

Thanks, Cankles…

…but I’ve already got enough reasons to vote against you: “Hillary Clinton’s push on gun control marks a shift in presidential politics”.

Looks like Hillary has her own Valerie Jarrett:
“Huma’s influence is so pervasive, and Hillary’s dependence on her so total, that it is expected she will have her own bedroom upstairs in the White House,” a Clinton associate told OrbMagazine’s Richard Turley. “After 20 years as Hillary’s gatekeeper, no one else could screen the calls and decide who gets access as ably as she does.”

With respect to the whole "softer uniform" business, I think something like this is probably what the Obamunists have in mind.
