Netanyahu to release ‘dramatic’ intel showing Iran violating the nuclear nuclear ‘deal’

Netanyahu to release 'dramatic' intel showing Iran violating the nuclear nuclear 'deal'
If you’re still foolish enough to believe that Iran is honoring – or ever had any intention of honoring – the “nuclear deal,” well ….we pity you.  Even if you ignore the Mullahs’ decades of terrorist sponsorship, hostage-taking, and lies, you have to know that they violated the agreement almost as soon as they signed it.  So, it takes a special kind of head-in-the-sand person to think their word is still their bond.

Israel and United States Military Assistance to Egypt

Israel should encourage the US to retain its policy of orienting the military assistance to counterterrorism and border security challenges
In January 2018, with little fanfare, the United States and Egypt signed a bilateral communications security agreement known as the Communications Interoperability and Security Memorandum of Agreement (CISMOA), which protects and regulates the use of sensitive American avionics and communications systems. Until now, Cairo refused to sign CISMOA, objecting to the invasive access it accords the US to Egypt’s facilities and communications systems.

President Macron Would Be Thrown Out Of Rick’s In Casablanca!

President Macron Would Be Thrown Out Of Rick's In Casablanca!I was so thoroughly disgusted with oligarch Macron’s performance here in America. With his Obama/Trudeau-esque ‘charm’ and lighthearted con-man act, he attempted to work our president like a jukebox. And our own Donald, in his response to that, was nothing but a class act in opening our hospitality and home up - through his heart - in his best effort at showing our traditionally American welcome to a man who pretended to be his friend for three days.

President Trump, Kim Jong Un, Moon Jae-in announce that the Korean War will end later this year

President Trump, Kim Jong Un, Moon Jae-in announce that the Korean War will end later this year
Announcements of pending announcements are always weird.  You want to get excited about what’s happening, but there’s quite a way to go before its official, and everything could fall apart before things are finalized.  ….Just ask Frank Luntz.  However, it certainly looks like The Korean War is finally about to come to an end.

South Korea’s Foreign Minister: ‘clearly credit goes to President Trump’—CNN hardest hit

South Korea’s Foreign Minister: ‘clearly credit goes to President Trump’ – CNN hardest hit.
Earlier, we talked a bit about how crestfallen the Democrats, the NeverTrumpers, and their media allies are.  The possible end of the Korean War has ruined their day.  Most of the usual press outlets are doing what they can to play down the President’s involvement in current historic events. Most are trying to make sure you know that they’re observing President Trump’s role in the Korean peace process with an intense degree of skepticism – a stance we know would never have been considered if Barack Obama had achieved, or even attempted, such a feat.

At 70 – Israel’s economy exceeds expectations

 Israel's economy exceeds expectations
In 1948, conventional wisdom considered the newly-reestablished Jewish State insolvent economically, indefensible militarily, a basket case, totally dependent upon handouts.

In 2018, Forbes Magazine quoted Warren Buffett (February 26, 2018): “I’m not Jewish, but Israel reminds me of the USA after its birth.  The determination, motivation, intelligence and initiative of its people are remarkable and extraordinary.

‘Almost speechless’: CNN forced to issue this stunned report as Kim Jong Un begins to open North Korea
We all know what CNN thinks of Donald Trump.  After the defeat of Hillary Clinton, they turned their network into a 24-7 drumbeat of shock, rage, hatred, derision and conspiracy theories – all designed to de-legitimize and destroy the President.

The Saudi Revolution

The Saudi Revolution
Saudi Arabia is in the midst of revolutionary processes that aim to change the economic and social fabric in this conservative kingdom. In contrast to the bottom-up Arab revolutions that took place over the past decade, the Saudi revolution is guided top-down by Crown Prince and acting ruler Mohammad bin Salman from his palace in Riyadh.

France’s Macron: I’m really enjoying my special relationship with Donald Trump
It almost makes me pine for the days of Jacques Chirac, sort of like you think back on your bout with Herpes and wonder where the time has gone.

Who would have thought the presidency of Donald Trump would coincide with a significant warming in our relationship with France?

International law and the State of Israel

International law and the State of Israel
For thousands of years, nations came and went, pursuant to the rule, to the victor go the spoils. This included the right to rape the women, enslave the men, confiscate their wealth and rule the country as they saw fit.

By the beginning of the nineteenth century, this rule had changed considerably but the right of the victor to change borders and transfer populations of conquered countries was enshrined in international law.

Raul Castro ‘steps down’ . . . and remains in complete control of Cuba
Maybe you don’t remember when we used to pay attention to the shams that were communist governments around the globe.

One thing that was understood back then was that you didn’t necessarily have any power at all as “president” or “prime minister” or whatever you might call the top job in the government. It’s the Communist Party that really has the power, and whoever runs the Communist Party controls the country.

Chemical Warfare – Beyond Syria
It says something very profound about the horrors of chemical warfare that even given the inherent insanity of war the use of gas is universally considered beyond the pale.  The civilized nations of the world agree – chemical warfare is anathema, no exceptions.
