September 1, 2015—Countdown to a Very Bad Deal

September 1, 2015—Countdown to a Very Bad Deal

The pending Deal with Iran is little to no help in preventing metastasizing of the Iranian nuclear threat. Indeed it could become a capstone for Iran gaining confidence in the deliverable capability it has pursed for many years, i.e., via a deliberate path toward nuclear weapons and the means to deliver them—to attack the “Little Satan” Israel and the “Great Satan” America.

August 25, 2015 — Middle East Madness?

August 25, 2015 — Middle East Madness?

We are entering a dangerous period during which the Middle East may become embroiled in a nuclear war between Israel and Iran—and consequences from that war could extend well beyond the Middle East, even to America with existential implications. Unless something happens to persuade Congress to block President Obama’s “Deal with Iran,” such dire events could follow shortly. And time is running out.

August 4, 2015 – Moniz, Maddow, Shultz and the “Know Nothing” Club . . .

In a June 29 article on MSNBC’s Maddow Blog, Steve Benen reported on exchanges between Senators and Secretary of Energy Ernest Moniz, presumably associated with the technical issues of assuring the verifiability of the Deal with Iran, which alleges to block Iranian nuclear weapons for at least a decade. He ridiculed Senator Ron Johnson’s question of whether Secretary Moniz was familiar with electromagnetic pulse, noting that question had nothing to do with the “Deal” and challenged Senator Ted Cruz’s references to his previous testimony. Benen then proceeded to make numerous false or misleading claims based on a chorus of other also ill-informed or incompetent, poorly researched related commentaries masquerading as press accounts.

July 28, 2015—Iranian Deal Deception!

“I continue to be concerned about Iranian malign activity in the region to include here [in Iraq], and the possibility of Iranian aggression and the possibility that Iran will not obey the agreement, which we’ll find out, because there’s got to be inspections and [verification] and so forth . . . We will keep the military option, which was the alternative to a deal . . . [It] doesn’t solve all problems over in this part of the world, and it doesn’t solve all problems emanating from Iran. …It’s an agreement that places important limitations upon Iran, places no limits on us, and it doesn’t place any limits on anything we do with anybody in this region.” Defense Secretary Ashton Carter to the Troops in Iraq, as reported by Breitbart News on July 24.

July 21, 2015—An Iran Deal Distraction!

July 21, 2015—An Iran Deal Distraction!

The Deal with Iran is a bad, bad deal—and the debate over its future acceptance will no doubt be very political in the coming weeks. Unfortunately, this debate ignores an existing Iranian capability to attack the United States with nuclear weapons they may rapidly obtain, if they don’t have them already. And this means of attack poses an existential threat to all Americans—just what the Iranian mullahs and their followers say they want when they chant “Death to America.” Beware of an EMP attack from a satellite launched southward from Iran (or North Korea). Wake up America!

July 14, 2015—Pluto: New Horizons, Clementine, Infinity and Beyond!

“There was a time when space-based missile defense was criticized as ‘weaponizing space.’ So, while we sat back and tried to show leadership on this issue, Russia and China weaponized it for us . . . [I]t’s time to get past ideology and develop real defenses, and space-based missile defenses shouldn’t be off-the-table. For less than our current systems, we could deploy a missile defense system in space that’s more capable than what we have in today’s GMD system.” Rep. Mike Rogers (R-AL), Chairman of the House Armed Services Strategic Forces Subcommittee at the July 8th AFA, NDIA and ROA seminar

July 7, 2015 — Remember July 9 Lessons!

On July 9, 1962 — 53 years ago— the United States detonated a 1.4 megaton nuclear device 240 miles above Johnston Island in the South Pacific. The immediate effects of Starfish Prime were felt 900 miles away in Hawaii and damaged our satellites early our venture into space following the Soviet Union’s 1957 “Sputnik” that shocked America into action. Its consequences prompted a far-reaching response that remained highly classified until only seven years ago. Most Americans remain oblivious to the existential threat to all we hold dear posed by largely ignored lessons learned from that fateful day. Time to wake-up!

ISIS Going Global?

June 30, 2015—ISIS Going Global?

Within a three hours period last Friday, jihadis killed about 60 persons and wounded several hundred others in three nation states. Friday’s attacks in France, Tunisia and Kuwait came days after the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS) terrorist group called for such operations during the Muslim holy month of Ramadan (June 17-July 17). Was this “Bloody Friday” an introduction to more such terrorism during the next several weeks? Within what geographic limits? Within the United States? Something to consider for this Fourth of July?

June 18, 2015—Volatile New World Disorder!

“. . . Years ago, before the East Germans began rebuilding their churches, they erected a secular structure: the television tower at Alexander Platz. Virtually ever since, the authorities have been working to correct what they view as the tower’s one major flaw, treating the glass sphere at the top with paints and chemicals of every kind. Yet even today when the sun strikes that sphere–that sphere that towers over all Berlin—the light makes the sign of the cross. There in Berlin, like the city itself, symbols of love, symbols of worship, cannot be suppressed. . .” ~ President Ronald Reagan at the Brandenburg Gate, June 12, 1987
