‘Terrible’ Iran Deal Makes Israeli Strike Inevitable

The nuclear deal reached with Iran on Tuesday is clouded by uncertainty about whether the Iranian regime will live up to its relatively weak commitments. One outcome is almost certain, however: Israel will launch a pre-emptive strike against Iran, hoping to weaken the regime and stop, or slow, its nuclear program.

Josh Earnest Lied: Iran Deal Fails 5-Point Test by Former Obama Advisers

Late last month, several Middle East policy experts–including prominent former Obama administration officials–warned that negotiations with Iran were heading in the wrong direction. “The agreement will not prevent Iran from having a nuclear weapons capability,” they said, and warned that the terms would “fall short of meeting the administration’s own standard of a ‘good’ agreement.” They suggested that any Iran deal would have to cover five crucial elements–each of which, they suggested, were lacking in the emerging terms of the agreement.

Alan Dershowitz Responds to Obama’s Failed Nuclear Deal with Iran

On Tuesday, President Obama proclaimed victory with his announcement of a nuclear deal with the Mullahs in Iran, saying that he has now made sure that Iran cannot make a nuclear bomb. Jurist, author, and political commentator Alan Dershowitz, though, is thoroughly skeptical that Obama’s deal is anything like a victory.

House Republican Leaders Cancel Vote To Fund Susan G. Komen – Major Donor to Planned Parenthood

The cancellation of the vote comes in the wake of an investigative video released Tuesday morning by pro-life group Center for Medical Progress which depicted Planned Parenthood’s chief medical officer speaking about how to abort a baby intact in order to be able to harvest its body parts for sale.

Report: Concealed Carry On The Rise, Murder On The Decline

For example, “over 1.7 million new permits were issued [in 2014],” which represents a “15.4 percent increase” over the number issued the year before. The CPRC report also shows that concealed carry permits are no longer just a guy thing, either. Rather, since 2007 “permits for women have increased by 270 percent” while permits for men have increased “by 156 percent.”

Mark Levin : Numbers You Hear on Immigration Are a Lie

House Appropriations Committee Adopts Sanctuary City Funding Ban

“Cities that refuse to comply with immigration officials and release dangerous criminals back into our communities put innocent American lives at risk,” Rep. Kevin Yoder says. “If these cities wish to continue to subvert the law they will do so without the support of American taxpayers. The heartbreaking tragedy in San Francisco was preventable and we must do everything we can to ensure that it never happens again,” he added.

The Minimum Wage Is a Tax Increase

The realistic response to minimum-wage increases involves some combination of making do with less labor – cutting hours, firing people – or passing the cost increase along to consumers. Rarely do we find such a clear-cut example of the latter as the hefty price increase at Chipotle restaurants in San Francisco. As the Chicago Tribune reported, the company was quite direct about raising its prices to cover the cost of local minimum-wage hikes, above and beyond the general price increase imposed on numerous markets to account for the rising cost of food supplies, particularly beef.

Duncan: Obama’s Lifeline to Communist Cuba Gains Nothing for America or Cubans

Cuba has a clear record as a foreign intelligence collector and trafficker of U.S. national secrets to other authoritarian regimes, such as China, Iran, North Korea, and Russia. Recall that Defense Intelligence Agency Director Lieutenant General Vincent Stewart stated in February that “Cuban intelligence services . . . remain the predominant counterintelligence threat to the U.S. emanating from Latin America.” Practically, this means that American tourists or business professionals who visit Cuba could easily find themselves subjected to Cuban surveillance, and potentially having personal information about them used as a tool of spy craft.
