Israel Believes Biden Just Weeks Away From Signing New Iran Nuclear Deal

As the Biden administration spares no effort in appeasing and cajoling Iran to restore the 2015 nuclear pact, the rogue regime has renewed threats to destroy Israel.


 Legal Insurrection

Senior Israeli official: “We will not be surprised if within weeks the US and other world powers sign a deal with Iran.”

"Israeli officials believe that President Joe Biden may be just weeks away from inking a new nuclear deal with Iran. Jerusalem “will not be surprised if within weeks the US and other world powers sign a deal with Iran,” an Israeli official told media.

"The Biden administration is currently engaged in European Union-mediated talks with Iran to restore the Obama-era nuclear deal. The White House has already made major concessions to Tehran, including sanctions relief, revoking enforcement of the U.N. weapons embargo, and removing the terrorist designation of an Iranian-backed Yemeni jihadi group.

"The Times of Israel reported Israeli officials’ comments:

Israeli officials on Sunday night expressed concern that the Biden administration will rush to rejoin the nuclear deal with Iran, arguing that Washington’s negotiating power is compromised by its eagerness to clinch a pact.

“Both sides, the Americans and the Iranians, want a deal. The Iranians smell that the Americans want an agreement at any price,” an official told Channel 12 on condition of anonymity, following a top-level security cabinet meeting on the issue.

“The outcome is known from the start — a return to the Iran deal with amendments,” the official added.

The official said such a deal, in the long term, “will restrict Israel’s freedom of movement. It’s very troubling.”

Another senior Israeli official told the Axios site that they feared a deal could come very soon. “We will not be surprised if within weeks the US and other world powers sign a deal with Iran.”

How can any reasonable person vote Democrat or for their sock puppet Biden?

Throughout the Obama presidency, it became clear that Obama's goal was to abandon the Constitution in favor of a socialist-style system with an all-powerful government and a people divided by race, with a system of government spoils determining winners and losers.  Biden was on board.

Biden's statement following the Chauvin verdict was disgraceful  "Biden was always a vicious buffoon.  That is, he's a man with a small, feral intelligence that he's managed to leverage into power by sinking his talons into whatever racial or ideological hatred is popular at the time.  In many ways, he was made for this moment, which culminated with him, as the current occupant of the White House, following a trial predicated on jury intimidation, with a statement oozing contempt for the nation he governs.

"In the 1970s, when Biden entered the White House, he attached himself to the white supremacists and segregationists.  By the 1980s, when their heyday had passed, he joined forces with Ted "Chappaquiddick" Kennedy, an alcoholic manslaughterer and the terror of decent women, to launch a racist attack against Clarence Thomas, a black man of dignity, intelligence, and integrity, solely because Thomas wasn't prepared as a judge to jettison the Constitution to achieve leftist political ends.

"In the 1990s, Biden reinvented himself as tough on crime. One of his signature accomplishments was the 1994 Crime Bill, which sent three generations of Black men to prison. It took Donald Trump to begin undoing its effects on the Black community, in which young men were raised by gangsters because their fathers were rotting in jail thanks to Joe Biden." . . .


If Biden believes in the White privilege–Black victimization line he's spouting, it would behoove him to leave the White House immediately.  As long as he stays there, a symbol of systemic racism in America, he is, in his own words, "a stain on our nation's soul."  The fact that he has no intention of leaving is the strongest argument one can make that he doesn't believe a word he's saying.

The trial of Derek Chauvin has unleashed the dogs of thuggery and revolution  . . . "The primary lesson the militant left will take away from the Chauvin trial is not that he was found guilty but that its tactics work.  Leftists' willingness to use violence, looting, intimidation, and threats has succeeded beyond their wildest dreams as they watched a judge and jury succumb to their threats and history of belligerence.  Further, the elected members of the Democrat party as well as the Democrat media and the bulk of the ruling elites refused to criticize their tactics and in fact defended them and regurgitated their talking points as if they were trained seals." . . .

The Resistance Begins › American Greatness (amgreatness.com)   "It is now clear that the Biden Administration poses the greatest threat to the American experiment we have seen in modern history. To be sure, the Obama Administration was a major threat but the Biden team seems determined to push the boundaries of radicalism far beyond even what Barack Obama had fantasized, even though we must admit he laid the foundation for Biden. 
"Whether it’s support for open borders, the use of illegal Executive Orders, the undermining of our constitutional rights, or the unprecedented demonization and harassment of conservatives based on phony racial narratives, the Biden agenda is a total assault on America’s founding principles, the rule of law, and our democratic institutions.  
"It is not known at this time whether America will survive this assault. To be sure, if Biden succeeds with packing the court, converting D.C. or Puerto Rico into new states, granting amnesty to millions of illegal aliens, and institutionalizing the corruption of our electoral system, we may never recover the America of our fathers. Rather, we will witness the evolution of what one could call a “soft” police state, characterized by cronyism, socialism, globalism, and the complete censorship and ostracization of everyone and anyone not supportive of the revolution. " . . . 

Following the Chauvin verdict, there are two videos you should see "The Derek Chauvin trial and verdict may well mark a turning point in America. At one level, we’ve seen our criminal justice system reduced to one terrible message: Blacks win and Whites lose or your cities will burn. If true, this is a disaster for Black and White communities alike. At another level, this moment may be the prod that all Americans who believe in a free, colorblind society need to push them out of their comfort zones and into the ideological war being waged in America. Candace Owens has articulated the first level; while Ben Domenech has stated the second." . . .   Now, this lady has a backbone.

. . . "Candace nailed the situation when she said we have “a pandemic of cowardice going on in this country.” In other words, as long as we have a Vichy GOP that functions as the marginally more conservative branch of the Democrat party, nothing will change.". . .

For 150 years, Lynch mobs have worked for Democrats, so what's new?


 "Thank you George Floyd for Sacrificing Your Life for Justice!" - Nancy Pelosi Spouts Off Outrageous Nonsense after Derek Chauvin Verdict (VIDEO) (thegatewaypundit.com)

"Then Pelosi spoke and said:

Nothing surpasses the honor of being with the Black Caucus today where we have seen a step in the right direction for justice done.   Earlier at about 3 o’clock I spoke to the family to say to them thank you.  God bless you for your grace and dignity, for the model that you are….

 … they complimented the Congressional Black Caucus for its role it played in all this…  His name [George Floyd] is synonomous with justice, and dignity and grace and honor.”

Maxine Waters? "Grace and dignity"? 

Chauvin may be guilty, but Waters and Biden made sure this will drag on in appeal (nypost.com) "Indeed, it is worse than that. For all the downsides of his unhinged commentary, Trump never took matters to the point of jury intimidation, as the preternaturally unhinged Democratic Congresswoman Maxine Waters did over the weekend.

"The jury may have returned a verdict Tuesday, finding him guilty of all charges. But as the judge noted Monday, Waters’ inflammatory language offered Chauvin grounds for appeal. Because of her, this isn’t over." . . .

. . . "Waters checked every box. As a federal representative from a California district, she traveled to another sovereign state, Minnesota, to interfere in its judicial system. Her rabble-rousing was done in violation of a curfew that the elected mayor had imposed to suppress the rioting that followed the tragic accidental killing of Daunte Wright by a police officer. And her remarks can only be interpreted as an incitement to violence — one less ambiguously provocative than the one over which she and other House Democrats impeached Trump." . . .

Dershowitz: Maxine Waters’ Tactics Similar to Those Used by Ku Klux Klan (theepochtimes.com)  . . . "“Her message was clearly intended to get to the jury—‘If you will acquit or if you find the charge less than murder, we will burn down your buildings. We will burn down your businesses. We will attack you. We will do what happened to the witness—blood on their door,’” he said during an appearance on Newsmax, referring to how the former home of defense expert Barry Brodd was recently vandalized.

“ 'This was an attempt to intimidate the jury. It’s borrowed precisely from the Ku Klux Klan of the 1930s and 1920s when the Klan would march outside of courthouses and threatened all kinds of reprisals if the jury ever dared convict a white person or acquit a black person. And so, efforts to intimidate a jury should result in a mistrial with the judge, of course, wouldn’t grant a mistrial because then he’d be responsible for the riots that would ensue, even though it was Waters who was responsible,” Dershowitz added." . . .

The cravenness of Joe Biden

 Biden Has Already Betrayed The Christians Who Voted For Him (thefederalist.com) "Many Christians are feeling frustrated with the Biden administration. A recent op-ed in the Wall Street Journal points to how Joe Biden’s flip-flop on refugees is frustrating evangelicals who foolishly voted for him last November. As the Journal contributor noted, they have a reason to feel betrayed.

"Believers who care about values, life, and religious liberty continue to find that the new administration has let them down time and time again. While Biden may attend Mass regularly, many of his policy positions raise questions of how diligently he practices his Catholic faith outside the four walls of his church." . . .

Immigration and the Essential Cravenness of Joe Biden | RealClearPolitics    "Nothing so surely signals the essential emptiness of Joe Biden than his rapid flip-flop Friday on raising the cap on the number of asylum seekers the United States will accept. At first the Biden Administration announced that they would not lift the relatively low cap that Trump had adopted, but following “outcry” from “Progressives,” Biden did a pirouette worthy of Bolshie ballerina and said he’d now lift the cap. One reason Biden had held the line, however briefly, on the asylum cap is that he’s polling terribly on immigration. But all it took was a gust of hot wind from “Progressives” to make him retreat.

"Do you remember the Time magazine cover from 2009 which depicted Obama “the Lightworker” as the second coming of FDR, with the headline, “The New New Deal”? Well, now comes The Atlantic with the “Welcome to the New Progressive Era,” which aims to express the pleasant (for them) surprise that Biden has sold out so fully to “Progressives.' ”

"Washington in the first days of the Biden administration is a place for double takes: A president associated with the politics of austerity is spending money with focused gusto, a crisis isn’t going to waste, and Senator Bernie Sanders is happy." . . .


BREAKING: Democrats Making Shocking Move, Will Back Petition to Censure Maxine Waters, Will Lose Chair

 BREAKING: Democrats Making Shocking Move, Will Back Petition to Censure Maxine Waters, Will Lose Chair (trendingpolitics.com)  "A growing number of congressional Democrats are so furious at Maxine Waters for inciting violence in Minneapolis that they are supporting joining Republicans and censuring Waters which will result in her dismissal as chairwoman of the House Financial Services Committee.

"Over the weekend while on the ground in Brooklyn Center, Minneapolis, Waters encourage Democrats to get “confrontational” and to “make sure that they know we mean business.”

“ 'We’re looking for a guilty verdict. We’re looking for a guilty verdict. And we’re looking to see if all of this [inaudible] that took place and has been taking place after they saw what happened to George Floyd,” Waters said. “If nothing does not happen, then we know, that we’ve got to not only stay in the street, but we’ve got to fight for justice, but I am very hopefully and I hope that we’re going to get a verdict that will say guilty, guilty, guilty. And if we don’t, we cannot go away.' ”  . . .

Chauvin defense attorney asks for a mistrial, citing prosecutorial misconduct, publicity | KSTP.com  "The attorney representing former Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin asked the court to declare a mistrial, citing prosecutorial misconduct and ongoing comments from public officials they feel will influence the jury's decision.

"Shortly after jurors began deliberations, defense attorney Eric Nelson argued that special prosecutor Jerry Blackwell's characterization of his closing argument laid the grounds for a mistrial.

"Nelson recited several instances where Blackwell told jurors the defense had created "stories" or were "shading" the truth of what happened on May 25, 2020." . . .

Candace Owens rallies parents to start suing schools


bizpacreview.com  
"Conservative activist Candace Owens says that parents have to start taking ‘woke’ schools to court when their offspring get bullied for resisting identity politics indoctrination in the classroom.

" 'Parents have to start speaking out, not just speaking out, but suing. You have to start suing these schools because they’re ruining the lives of young children,” Owens told “Sunday Morning Futures” host Maria Bartiromo on the Fox News Channel in an interview embedded below in two parts.

"Owens and her former Turning Point USA colleague, Charlie Kirk, appeared on the show to react to two very disturbing examples of far-left intolerance.

"In one incident, a Minnesota high schooler who wanted to start up a Turning Point chapter was falsely accused of racial messaging, which prompted school-wide protests and even a law enforcement investigation. And in the other, a Virginia student was shamed for wanting to do a presentation about Owens for Black History Month.

"Kirk characterized the two incidents as “a cultural fire alarm.”

“ 'Where are teachers, where are the administrators, and where are the adults that are gonna start to stand up and realize that the next generation that’s standing up for freedom in our country, is worthy of protection…it takes courage to be a young conservative. It’s time for adults to start to protect young peoples’ right to organize and speak their mind,” Kirk declared. . . .

Judge Scolds Maxine Waters for ‘Abhorrent’ Comments, Says She ‘May Have Given’ Chauvin an Argument for Appeal

American Thinker

Judge Cahill Scolds Rep. Maxine Waters for Trial Comments (mediaite.com)  "After the prosecutors and defense attorneys presented their closing arguments in the Derek Chauvin trial, the defense moved for a mistrial because of media coverage of the case and comments by Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA). Judge Peter Cahill acknowledged that Waters might have given the defense an argument to use for an appeal, and scolded her for making “disrespectful” and “abhorrent” comments on the case, but did not feel that the issue rose to the level that would require a mistrial.
"Defense attorney Eric Nelson argued that the high level of media attention was “so profound” and “so pervasive” that it was impossible for the jury to not have been tainted by it. The jury who will decide if Chauvin is criminally responsible for the death of George Floyd was not sequestered during the trial itself, and will only be sequestered now during their deliberations.
"Nelson referenced Waters’ recent comments as she joined a protest in Minneapolis that if Chauvin was not convicted that they would have to “get more confrontational,” calling it “mind-boggling” that “we have U.S. Representatives threatening acts of violence in relation to this specific case.”

"Nelson had not mentioned Waters by name, but Cahill was clear on the reference he was making. “Well, I’ll give you that Congresswoman Waters may have given you something on appeal that may result in this whole trial being overturned,” the judge said, “but what’s the state’s position?' ” . . .


Black People To Boycott Home Depot Because It Won’t Issue Negative Statements About Georgia Voting Law…

  Weasel Zippers


"And Home Depot will reply “We sell tools, shut up”

Via NY Times:

A major coalition of Black faith leaders in Georgia, representing more than 1,000 churches in the state, will call on Tuesday for a boycott of Home Depot, arguing that the company has abdicated its responsibility as a good corporate citizen by not pushing back on the state’s new voting law.

The call for a boycott, led by Bishop Reginald T. Jackson, who oversees all 534 African Methodist Episcopal churches in Georgia, represents one of the first major steps to put significant economic pressure on businesses to be more vocal in opposing Republican efforts in Georgia and around the country to enact new restrictions on voting.

“We don’t believe this is simply a political matter,” Bishop Jackson said in an interview. “This is a matter that deals with securing the future of this democracy, and the greatest right in this democracy is the right to vote.”

Congresswoman Maxine Waters (D-Calif.) Encourages BLM Rioters to Get More Violent

This is not the first time Waters has publicly called for violence against political opponents. In 2018, while speaking to supporters in Los Angeles through a megaphone, Waters encouraged her followers to harass and mob Trump supporters and Trump Administration officials if they were seen in public.

 American Greatness "Congresswoman Maxine Waters (D-Calif.) spoke to a gathering of rioters in Brooklyn Center, Minnesota on Sunday and encouraged them to cause more violence if they do not get the outcome they like in the trial of Derek Chauvin, as reported by the Daily Caller.

"The radical Democrat, wearing a mask and goggles, falsely declared that Chauvin, a former Minneapolis police officer, was guilty of “murder” in the death of George Floyd last year. Floyd died in police custody after being arrested by Chauvin and three other officers for erratic behavior that was consistent with being under the influence of drugs; the autopsy report later confirmed that Floyd did indeed die of a fentanyl overdose.

" 'We’ve got to stay on the street,” Waters said, “and we’ve got to get more active, we’ve got to get more confrontational. We’ve got to make sure that they know that we mean business.” Waters was speaking at a riot that was ostensibly happening in response to the more recent death of Daunte Wright, who was killed by a police officer when she accidentally reached for her firearm instead of her taser; Wright had a criminal history that included a then-pending case for aggravated robbery, and had an outstanding warrant for his arrest at the time he was shot." . . .

America’s Racial Self-Flagellation at the UN Only Helps Rogue States -

  Noah Rothman, Commentary Magazine

. . . "For some reason, the Biden administration seems to want to give that sort of craven propagandizing a boost.

"Racial discrimination against minorities is a chronic sickness in American society.”

“…the challenges facing the United States in human rights are deep-seated. They did not just emerge over the past four years, such as Black Lives Matter.”

“[S]lavery is the original sin of America. It’s weaved white supremacy and black inferiority into our founding documents and principles.”

"What distinguishes these relatively similar remarks about America’s flawed past and imperfect present? The first two were delivered by Communist Chinese officials in an effort to embarrass the United States on the world stage. The third is an indictment of the United States by the United States itself. 

"That particular remark comes from the head of the American mission to the United Nations, Linda Thomas-Greenfield, in a March speech before the UN General Assembly. She recently reiterated the themes of that speech in an address to the non-profit group founded by Rev. Al Sharpton, the National Action Network. “Of course, when we raise issues of equity and justice at the global scale, we have to approach them with humility,” Thomas-Greenfield conceded. “We have to acknowledge that we are an imperfect Union and have been since the beginning.' ” . . .
