Netanyahu Reveals Tons Of Evidence That Iran Lied About Its Nuclear Weapons Program

Noisy Room  . . . "Netanyahu said the files that Israeli intelligence had obtained came from a storage facility for the files on the nuclear weapons program in the Shorabad district in southern Tehran. The Israelis managed to get 55,000 pages of documents and another 55,000 files on 183 CDs. The originals are now in a “very safe place,” Netanyahu assured anyone watching. I have no doubt of that and kudos to the IDF and Mossad for doing excellent work once again."

. . . "Netanyahu stated, “We’ve known for years that Iran had a secret nuclear weapons program called Project Amad. We can now prove that Project Amad was a comprehensive program to design, build, and test nuclear weapons. We can also prove that Iran is secretly storing Project Amad material to use at a time of its choice to develop nuclear weapons.” He presented Iranian documents in Farsi that describe plans for Project Amad to build five nuclear weapons with a yield of 10 kilotons each. “That’s like 5 Hiroshima bombs to be put on ballistic missiles,” he explained.
"Netanyahu says the files prove four verifiable things:
  • Iran lied about never having a nuclear weapons program.
  • Even after the deal, Iran continued to preserve and expand its nuclear weapons for future use.
  • Iran lied again in 2015 when it didn’t come clean to the IAEA as required by the nuclear deal.
  • The nuclear de. . . al is based on lies. . . .
The Obama Disaster, and the Tweet of the Day "With today’s bombshell about Iran’s ongoing nuclear weapons program, the wreckage of Barack Obama’s foreign policy is coming into focus. Syria: the “red line” fiasco, with hundreds of thousands killed. North Korea: a do-nothing policy that brought America’s West Coast perilously close to coming under nuclear threat. Iran: a deal that would have been foolish even if the mullahs hadn’t cheated, $100 billion and sanctions relief now, in exchange for promises that Iran could walk away from at will. We now know that the deal was even worse than that.

"Those were the biggest disasters, but not the only ones. Libya: incredibly, Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton participated in the overthrow of a dictator without having a plan for what would come after. The result was a failed state, and a terrorist haven. Cuba and Venezuela: while the disastrous condition of both socialist countries is not Obama’s fault, his admiration for, and coddling of, Fidel Castro and Hugo Chavez contributed to sentencing the people of those countries to another generation of poverty and oppression. China: Obama failed to stand up to China’s military expansionism, or to its aggressive trade and economic policies that cost American companies many billions of dollars. Israel: Obama deliberately downgraded relations with one of our most important allies, and shamefully meddled in an Israeli national election in hopes of electing a Prime Minister as spineless as himself.
"That isn’t a complete list, but it will do. We have a long way to go to dig ourselves out of the foreign policy holes that the feckless (at best) Obama administration dug, but President Trump and his team are at least making progress.
"How could the Obama administration have been so inept in foreign policy? Iowahawk has at least part of the answer:" . . .

Look out, Kanye! Friends of the left are coming for you.

Snoop Dogg’s Cousin Daz Dillinger to Crip Gang Members: ‘F**K Kanye West Up’ if He Steps Foot in California  "
A former member of rapper Snoop Dogg’s 90s entourage known as Tha Dog Pound has called for gangsters to attack hip-hop star Kanye West for his support of President Donald Trump.
"Daz Dillinger, Snoop Dogg’s cousin and collaborator on several 90’s era Dogg Pound hits, threatened Kanye on a since-deleted Instagram video.
"Dillinger says in the video, “Better not ever see you in concert. Better not ever see you around the LBC. Better not ever see you around California. Stay in Calabasas, ya hear me? ‘Cuz we got a Crip alert for Kanye.' ” . . .

Maxine Waters was quick to condemn this threat when...wait...what? She didn't? I just assumed she wouldn't stand for threats of black violence.
Kanye West to Launch Star-Studded Initiative to Restore Poor Chicago Communities

Beware ‘Conservative’ Celebrities  
. . . "It was the same phenomenon that saw Kanye West’s remarkable rebranding last week. A tweet or two in the president’s favor and the man previously best known for calling George W. Bush a racist sociopath on live television and contributing such immortal lines to the canon of American music as “eatin’ Asian p***y / all I need was sweet and sour sauce” was reborn as a conservative folk hero. Perhaps West was taking his cue from Roseanne Barr, whom many on the right have given a similar mulligan for decades of far-left lunacy on the grounds she kinda likes Trump." . . .

How about the left's war on women?

Beginning with the bullying of President George Bush by the weasel Stephen Colbert through other Republican presidents down, down, down to this latest screed. And on the sidelines watching is the maladjusted Kathy Griffin, and none worthy of an honorable person's respect.

I Watched How Sarah Sanders Privately Reacted After Being Attacked – This Is Her Real Character  . . . "The MSNBC party was set outdoors. It was a cold and rainy night and the event was winding down. Then the unexpected happened. Sarah Sanders walks into the MSNBC party. MSNBC, an openly liberal network that often promotes the vitriol that just attacked her, was the last place you would expect to find Sanders that night. But there she was. And guess what? Sarah Sanders was smiling. She owned it. I asked her about the attack and she shrugged, cracked a smile and simply told me that the attacks didn’t bother her and that she’s praying for the comedian.
"That is the kind of woman she is. "Sanders did not lash out publicly. She did not attack Michelle Wolf personally or professionally. She just forgave her and shrugged it off." . . .

A roast too far  "Saturday night's White House Correspondents Dinner was the ugly face of American journalism, where wit has been replaced by wickedness."

. . . "There was, however, plenty of laughter and applause, and ex post facto regrets will not undo the deep harm to the White House press corps, and more broadly to the Trump-hating mainstream media.  Remember that these W.H. correspondents have to ask pointed questions of Sanders, who now has a great deal of sympathy from the general public after the affair, and who conducted herself with admirable dignity and reserve.  Those correspondents who want to push her to get more detailed answers are now tarred with the brush wielded by Wolf as nasty.  Sarah Sanders's job in parrying their thrusts has just gotten a lot easier." . . .

EPIC: Sarah Sanders Calls Out The MSM’s Actual “War On Women”, Waged Against “Every Female That Is Close To This President
"As we at Gateway Pundit have frequently reported on before, the women who work in the Trump administration have been subjected to repeated attacks by the MSM on everything from their intelligence to their appearance to the disgusting case of Michael Wolfe claiming that Nikki Haley was having an affair with President Trump.". . . 
. . . "Speaking on Fox News, Sanders laid out what’s actually going on and what the media chooses to ignore: “The only war on women that I see is the one that’s being waged against every woman and every female that is close to this president.' ”  (Emphases in the original)

“ 'Yeah, I take the apology back. F**k him,” Griffin said" . . .

Secretary of State Mike Pompeo tells Kim Jong Un that he must take 'irreversible steps' to denuclearize, as the North Korea leader promises to give up his program if the US 'vows not to attack'

UK Daily Mail  

Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said on Sunday he told Kim Jung Un the North Korea leader would have to agree to take 'irreversible' steps towards denuclearization in any deal with President Donald Trump

"Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said on Sunday that he told Kim Jong Un the North Korea leader would have to agree to take 'irreversible' steps toward shutting its nuclear weapons program in any deal with President Donald Trump.
" 'We use the word "irreversible" with great intention,' Pompeo told ABC News. " 'We are going to require those steps that demonstrate that denuclearization is going to be achieved.'
"Kim expressed his readiness to discuss Trump's demand 'and to lay out a map that will help us achieve that objective,' Pompeo added.
"Pompeo, the former CIA director who was sworn in as the top U.S. diplomat on Thursday, said his meeting with Kim was 'a productive one' and that he left Pyongyang convinced there is 'a real opportunity' for the North Korean leader and Trump to strike a deal. " . . .   Read more.

Trump “Fundamentally Transforming” Obama’s Feckless Foreign Policy

Independent Sentinel   On October 30, 2008, presidential nominee Barack Obama, with the polling winds strongly at his back claimed, “We are five days away from fundamentally transforming the United States of America.”  There are few who could argue he did everything possible to fulfill that brazen, oft times divisive promise;  obvious failures be damned.
"Perhaps there were no more clearly measurable foul-ups than those centered on Obama’s “leading from behind” transformation of America’s foreign policy.  

"Iran- In spite of the fact that sanction ravaged country was in a dramatically weakened state, and their “navy” had buzzed U.S. ships, kidnapping our sailors, Obama spent years bargaining against himself and the best interests of the American people. Eventuallyhe capitulated, almost completely, on almost every major, national security, negotiating point.  As a special bonus, Barack dropped $1.7 billion cash into the coffers of the world’s largest state sponsor of terrorism. 

"Iraq- Obama, ignoring the warnings of his top military advisors, withdrew all U.S. troops, leaving a void quickly filled by a murderous ISIS caliphate.  When our fighting men and women were forced to return they were hamstrung by Barack’s suffocating “rules of engagement”.  

"Syria- After President Obama’s feeble “red line” threat against their use of chemical weapons was exposed as a fraud he petitioned Russia to intervene.  Putin seized that gift and quickly allied himself and Russian forces with the murderous dictator Bashar Al-Assad.  Shortly thereafter, Vladimir signed a sweetheart deal allowing Russia to expand and use the naval facility at the Syrian city of Tartus, free of charge.  The freebie warm water port was a geopolitical coup for the Kremlin." . . .

Comedian Targets Huckabee Sanders At White House Correspondents' Dinner

Timothy Meads at Townhall  "The annual White House Association Correspondents’ Dinner was held in Washington, DC last night. President Trump opted to skip the event for the second year in a row. Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders and several other White House officials represented him in his place. While humor was expected from the speakers at the dinner, some viewers felt that comedian Michelle Wolf’s jokes targeting Huckabee Sanders went too far. Conservatives and liberals alike lambasted Wolf for her attempts at be being funny. Perhaps the strongest condemnation of all came from MSNBC’s Mika Brzezinski.
"Brzezinski, who is no fan of the administration, thought Wolf’s jokes making fun of Huckabee Sanders appearance were mean spirited and “deplorable.” She called on the White House Correspondents' Association to issue an apology. " . . .

Jimmy Kimmel, Kathy Griffin Defend Michelle Wolf  . . . “A comic’s job is to go over the line and then push the line and go over it again,” Griffin tweeted. “Great comics aren’t supposed to be safe or careful. That would mean we’re not doing our job. By pushing the line we force people to think differently, to ask questions, and disrupt the status quo.” . . . As they did with Barack Obama?

Samantha Power Regrets Obama Admin Seeking Congressional Approval After Syrian “Red Line”

Legal Insurrection

"When Obama drew his red line on the Syrian government’s use of chemical weapons against Syrian civilians, few of us believed it.  As it turned out Assad didn’t believe it, either, and dealt a serious blow to the Obama administration and to Obama’s legacy.
"Ultimately, Obama decided to punt by seeking Congressional approval he didn’t need to respond to Syria flouting his red line.  It was a bad move.  Bad.
Since President Trump took office, Assad has reportedly used chemical weapons against his own people twice.  In both instances, Trump responded with missile attacks against Syrian interests, prompting the progressive outlet Vox to note that “Obama’s ‘red line’ fiasco led to Trump bombing Syria.”
"Trump agreed.

If President Obama had crossed his stated Red Line In The Sand, the Syrian disaster would have ended long ago! Animal Assad would have been history!
"Power then blamed those who were frequent critics and opponents of Obama for his lack of action in Syria."

I disagree with Power firmly. I do not see one iota of courage in Obama nor any trace of desire to confront America's enemies. From the days before he was inaugurated when he told Russia he would not give defensive weapons to eastern bloc nations threatened by that nation to his last days in office when US ships were harrassed by Iranian assault boats with no response from Obama.

Trump chose wisely, ignoring the White House Correspondents Association hatefest

First this James Woods Calls Michelle Wolf’s WHCD Jokes “a Gift From Heaven”

James Woods
They hate @PressSec Sarah Huckabee Sanders because she represents every aspect of American womanhood that we admire: intelligence, grace, empowerment, patriotism, and beauty. The troll who trashed her at the was too dim to memorize her own “jokes.” She had to read them.

Patricia McCarthy  . . . "Who was this year's host, Michelle Wolf?  A young alleged comedienne cast-off of the Daily Show that no one watches.  Most people who may have tuned into the MSNBC coverage of the correspondents' dinner had never heard of her.  Good call on their part; she has an x-rated mouth.  She is humorless, classless, graceless and an embarrassment to her profession.  She relished insulting people like the fabulous Sarah Sanders while Sarah is sitting in front of her.  Who does this?  Only heroes of the left.  Harry Reid and Chuck Schumer have been doing it for decades.  John Tester did it this past week.  He maligned a good man without a shred of evidence.  Like the fabricated fake "dossier," Tester made it all up to sabotage a good man, Ronny Jackson, for political expediency.  He will suffer the consequences.

"The American people are not remotely as dumb as the DC establishment thinks they are; nor are they as crass.  Most of them, millions of them, did not watch last night's televised abomination, and if they did, were horrified by the smutty tone of the evening.  This is the left exposing itself as the lowlifes they are.  The mystery is why were people like Hugh Hewitt in the audience?  Why did he not get up and leave? 
"Ms. Wolf is attractive to look at but difficult to hear.  Her voice is shrill and whiny.  She sounds like a little girl spewing disgusting, scatological profanity.  Her content is obscene.  Is this what politics have come to?  Apparently so.  This event was broadcast on MSNBC, of course, the network that airs Joe and Mika, Chris Matthews and Rachel Maddow.  NBC has no allegiance to the truth or any sense of decorum.

Kim says he will give up nukes if US promises not to invade

. . . "This sort of quid pro quo is exactly what the US is looking for. The only reason the US would invade the North is if Kim were to threaten us or the South Koreans with nuclear weapons. But he can't threaten us with nukes if he doesn't have any. In short, the US gives up relatively little while Kim gives up nearly everything.
That's why we should be skeptical of this offer. At this time, it's impossible to discern Kim's endgame. There must be some confidence building measures carried out  by Kim before the US would commit to such a course of action. If those steps are taken, we can be reasonably sure that Kim is sincere about giving up his nukes. 
But Kim is nothing if not complicated. Can it really be this simple? A man with zero credibility has just offered to disarm. Caution is still called for until Kim proves with his deeds that he can be trusted.

Rob Schneider: Leftist Politics Are Ruining SNL

Daily Wire  "'Speaking with the New York Daily News, Schneider said that "SNL" made a mistake by deciding to show its political hand so broadly, which was a departure from when he started in the early-90s, alongside such comedic giants like Mike Myers, Chris Rock, and Adam Sandler.

" 'The fun of 'Saturday Night Live' was always you never knew which way they leaned politically," he told the Daily News. "You kind of assumed they would lean more left and liberal, but now the cat's out of the bag they are completely against Trump, which I think makes it less interesting because you know the direction the piece is going."

"Schneider took aim at Alec Baldwin's current portrayal of President Trump in comparison to his former co-star Dana Carvey's portrayal of President H.W. Bush. Beneath the satire, according to Schneider, the latter showed affection for the president while the former only has disdain."

"The rapper has always been crass and annoying. But now he's the "wrong kind" of crass and annoying."

"Of all the weird fallout that’s come from Kanye West announcing his love for Donald Trump on Twitter, the reaction that perplexes me the most is the idea that sudden knowledge of his political opinions has rendered his music bad. Here’s a tweet from Democratic activist Scott Dworkin that’s pretty representative of the general sentiment:

In one of the findings within the 253-page report, the House intelligence committee wrote that Clapper leaked details of a dossier briefing given to then-President-elect Donald Trump to CNN’s Jake Tapper, lied to Congress about the leak, and was rewarded with a CNN contract a few months."

German Kippah Rallies

The Dry Bones Blog

"According to the Times of Israel: German Jews, non-Jews hold kippah-wearing protest against wave of anti-Semitism 2,000 march in German cities a day after Jewish leader warns against wearing religious symbols for fear of attack; one small protest cancelled after participants assaulted/

"BERLIN, Germany — non-Jewish Germans joined with Jews wearing kippahs at several protests across Germany on Wednesday in a sign of solidarity after a spate of shocking anti-Semitic incidents, raising pointed questions about Berlin’s ability to protect its burgeoning Jewish community seven decades after the Holocaust.

"One day after the head of Germany’s Central Council of Jews, Josef Schuster, warned against wearing religious symbols on city streets for fear of attack, some 150 protesters came to a rally in the eastern German city of Erfurt and hundreds more were expected later in the day in Berlin, Cologne and Potsdam.

“ 'We must never allow anti-Semitism to become commonplace in Germany again,” Foreign Minister Heiko Maas told the daily Tagesspiegel ahead of a “Berlin Wears Kippa” event where Jews and non-Jews will wear the traditional skullcap in a shared show of defiance.

"More than 2,000 people — Jews, Christians, Muslims and atheists — put on kippas in a show of solidarity in Berlin." . . .

Why Do We Wear a Kippah?  "The tradition to wear a kippah is not derived from any biblical passage. Rather, it is a custom which evolved as a sign of our recognition that there is Someone “above” us who watches our every act." . . .

The ex-husband of Barbara Bush-basher Prof. Randa Jarrar speaks out

Thomas Lifson  "Randa Jarrar, the Fresno State University tenured professor who demonized Barbara Bush shortly after her death and mocked her critics by pointing out that she has tenure and cannot be fired from her six-figure job shaping young minds, ought to become a poster child for the depths to which academia has sunk.  Her status is under review according to university officials, no doubt worried about alumni giving declining, so there is a decent possibility that she will become acause célèbre on the left, should she lose her job.  More attention on her would be perfect, as far as I am concerned.

"In my opinion, the many hardworking scholars of integrity still remaining in the ivory towers of America (yes, they do exist) are surrendering to and being overwhelmed by lesser minds, deranged with political correctness, and filled with hate toward the society they supposedly serve, and by which they are lavishly subsidized, directly with tax funds and indirectly with tax deductibility for donations.  In the current atmosphere on campus, people like Jarrar are able to be not simply accepted, but rewarded with tenure and other perks unimaginable to mainstream Americans.
"An account by a man purporting to be Professor Jarrar's ex-husband, verified by a search of public records as to the marriage and the birth of a child, was published on Milo Yiannopoulos's site Dangerous.  It amounts to a case study in the sort of person who can rise to the near top of a state-owned and subsidized institution of higher education.  I do not recommend it to the faint of heart, but for those who do not mind briefly entering the mire, it is enlightening as to just the sort of person she appears to be.  Of course, an ex-spouse tends to be quite bitter, so that grain of salt must be attached.  Nevertheless, remember that the sons and daughters of America are being entrusted to people who may not merit that consideration." . . .
