The Odds Of A War Between Israel And Iran Just Went Way Up
Uh oh – Iran just got caught with both hands in the cookie jar. It turns out that even while Iran has been negotiating a “historic peace deal” with the western world, it has been secretly operating a huge underground nuclear enrichment site that it didn’t tell anyone about. But this is what the Iranians always do. They lie, lie and then lie some more. So how in the world can you make a deal with a government that absolutely refuses to tell the truth? These revelations about a secret underground nuclear facility just outside Tehran come at a time when it looked like the Obama administration was about to cave in and give Iran just about everything that it wanted. The “deal” that Obama was going to give them would have allowed the Iranians to keep all of the nuclear infrastructure that they have already constructed and would also give them permission to start building nuclear weapons in about a decade. It would be a monstrously bad deal for the western world, and the Iranians should have jumped at it. But now these new revelations could throw a wrench into those negotiations. But much more importantly, knowledge of this secret nuclear facility has got to be extremely alarming to the Israelis. Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has always said that Israel will never, ever allow Iran to construct a nuclear weapon. So what will happen if the Israelis determine that Iran is actually much closer to building a nuclear bomb that anyone originally suspected? The truth is that the odds of a war between Israel and Iran just went way up thanks to these revelations, and that is not good news for any of us. (Read More….)

“It is of definite moment that you should properly estimate the immense value of your national union to your collective and individual happiness; that you should cherish a cordial, habitual, and immovable attachment to it; accustoming yourselves to think and speak of it as of the palladium of your political safety and prosperity; watching for its preservation with jealous anxiety; discountenancing whatever may suggest even a suspicion that it can in any event be abandoned, and indignantly frowning upon the first dawning of every attempt to alienate any portion of our country from the rest or to enfeeble the sacred ties which now link together the various part.” –George Washington, Farewell Address, 1796
TOP 5 RIGHT HOOKS
Let’s suppose there’s an enterprising Immigrations and Customs Enforcement agent who doesn’t follow the “prioritized deportation” policies handed down by a lawmaking president, but instead, follows the letter of the law. MSNBC’s Jose Diaz-Balart asked Barack Obama, “How do you ensure that ICE and Border Patrol won’t be deporting people like this. What are the consequences?” And Obama answered that agent would have trouble. “The bottom line is that if somebody’s working for ICE,” Obama said, “and there’s a policy, and they don’t follow the policy, there’s going to be consequences to it. So I can’t speak to a specific problem. What I can talk about is what’s true in the government generally. In the U.S. military, when you get an order, you’re expected to follow it.” In effect, Obama is saying his executive action on immigration — although unconstitutional and stayed by a federal judge — has the force of law and his authority as commander in chief behind it. Beware any lowly law enforcement official who doesn’t fall into line. More…
After weeks of impasse over blocking Barack Obama’s executive amnesty, the Senate finally moved. “The stalemate over funding for the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) was broken Wednesday as the Senate voted 98-2 to proceed to legislation that would prevent a partial government shutdown,” The Hill reports. “Democrats agreed to support the DHS bill after Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) agreed to strip out provisions inserted by the House that would reverse President Obama’s executive actions on immigration. The only votes against proceeding to the bill came from Sens. James Inhofe (R-Okla.) and Jeff Sessions (R-Ala.).” Now the legislation will move back to the House, where Republicans have steadfastly rejected doing anything less than blocking Obama. We appreciate the sentiment, but the battle has become House vs. Senate and Republican vs. Republican rather than the GOP Congress against Obama. That’s not going to win much.
The Obama administration says ISIL isn’t a domestic threat. All these terror attacks you hear about around the globe, they claim, are just demonstrations by “lone wolves” who can’t find jobs or something. And, hey, Obama’s economy is swell, so what’s the worry? Well, this, courtesy of NBC 4 New York: “Three Brooklyn men who allegedly plotted to travel to Syria to join ISIS and posted online messages about planting a bomb on Coney Island and shooting police officers were taken into custody during FBI and NYPD terror raids Wednesday. … The men, 24- and 30-year-old Uzbekistan citizens and a 19-year-old Kazakhstan citizen who all lived in Brooklyn, allegedly planned to return to New York to commit a domestic act of terror if they failed to join the group overseas, law enforcement officials said.” Does that sound like “lone-wolf terrorism”? Whether it’s an attack carried out by Islamists in the United States, Canada, Britain, France, Syria, Iraq or Australia, the common denominator is a twisted ideology that calls for slaying the infidel in service to Jihadistan. And while aspiring terrorists in the U.S. have for the most part kept underground, they have found new inspiration in ISIL, which is indirectly recruiting through the power of propaganda. More…
Meanwhile, “Jihadi John” — one of ISIL’s notorious beheaders — has been unmasked.
We get it. The Obama administration really doesn’t like Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. Secretary of State John Kerry made that clear again Wednesday in testimony before Congress, saying we can’t trust Netanyahu because he supported invading Iraq. “The prime minister was profoundly forward-leaning and outspoken about the importance of invading Iraq under George W. Bush. We all know what happened with that decision,” Kerry lectured. Indeed, it was the impetus for his infamous “botched joke” about uneducated people getting “stuck in Iraq.” There’s also the small detail of Kerry having voted for the war. We know he was for it before it was against it, but come on, Mr. Secretary. Have a little self-awareness.
Joe Biden’s comments commemorating Black History Month careened right past the struggle for civil rights and mired into full-on socialism. On Monday, Creepy Ol’ Joe hosted a Black History Month event where he said, “A lot of wealthy white and black people aren’t bad, but they control 1% of the economy and this cannot stand. It’s not fair because the business experts are saying that concentration of wealth is stunting growth. So let’s do something that’s worthy of emancipation.” Biden continued, explaining Abraham Lincoln’s Emancipation Proclamation: “What happened is not only did we move toward freeing black Americans but also the conscience of white Americans.” Per Biden’s usual rhetorical “style,” these comments are filled with muddled metaphors and thoughtless arguments. Is he saying “emancipating” the wealth belonging to the Scrooge McDucks of the nation would be good for their souls? If wealthy white and black people are the problem, how is this in any way connected to the civil rights struggle of the ’60s? Finally, why is he equating today’s dollars with enslaved, antebellum blacks? While nothing is officially announced, Biden may be starting his campaign for president — by signaling he’ll continue Barack Obama’s socialist engineering of America. More…

As kids break free of school for the weekend, the House is scheduled to vote Friday on the next iteration of No Child Left Behind (NCLB), the 2001 legislation that replaced the 1965 Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA) and exponentially expanded the reach of the federal government into the classroom.
Republicans introduced the Student Success Act (SSA), a bill aimed at scaling back Uncle Sam’s increasingly outsized role in the classroom. But two major groups that are in agreement more often than not — Heritage Action (affiliated with the Heritage Foundation) and the American Enterprise Institute (AEI) — have come down on opposite sides of this bill, with AEI backing it and Heritage not. As is often the case with legislation aimed at reining in a runaway government, the core issue comes down to whether the bill goes far enough in returning the federal government to its constitutionally authorized role in education. Incidentally, that role is “none.”
According to AEI, SSA offers several “fixes” to NCLB, including eliminating or consolidating 65 programs, promoting school choice by allowing Title I funds to follow low-income children to the district or charter school parents choose, repealing adequate yearly progress (AYP, which, as we’ve previously noted, has done more harm than good), eliminating the “highly qualified teacher” mandates, and preventing the federal government from pressing states to adopt Common Core or other national academic standards.
Heritage, however, holds that some of the bill’s claims are misleading. For example, according to Heritage, those 65 programs are not eliminated but only consolidated, and the consolidation does not mean spending is reduced. Similarly, while AYP disappears, the requirement that states develop state-level accountability structures does not; instead, SSA “direct[s] the state to establish a single uniform assessment, limiting the ability of local schools to determine their own curriculum.” And while Title I funds can follow the child to district and charter schools, they may not be used for private schools.
Further, Heritage notes of the SSA, “The suggestion that Congress needs a 616-page bill to reduce the federal education imprint is implausible.” Siding with those who believe SSA doesn’t go far enough, Heritage supports the A-PLUS (Academic Partnerships Lead Us to Success) option, referring to an amendment offered by Rep. Mark Walker (R-NC) that “enables states the flexibility to completely opt out [of federal education programs] and dictate how to best utilize federal education funding.”
AEI is less than convinced by A-PLUS, however. Max Eden and Michael Q. McShane explain that the actual wording of the amendment may encourage, not curb, federal involvement as A-PLUS opt-out requests could require the subjective approval of the secretary of education. Barack Obama’s current secretary, Arne Duncan, isn’t exactly someone conservatives should trust.
If the committee vote is any indication, the Student Success Act will pass the House on party lines and head to the Senate. Already, Obama threatened to veto the bill. He claims it “abdicates the historic federal role in elementary and secondary education of ensuring the educational progress of all of America’s students.”
Obama must have studied Common Core history. Yes, the federal government has a history of interfering in education, but a “historic role” doesn’t mean it’s a constitutional one. In truth, the Elementary and Secondary Education Act was first passed only in 1965, and the Department of Education didn’t become a Cabinet-level agency until 1980. Shockingly (ahem), all this “historic” involvement has failed to yield the stellar results promised.
Perhaps America’s Founders were actually onto something when they didn’t delegate to Congress the power to regulate education and, by the Tenth Amendment, reserved it to the states and the people. Of course, when Washington runs the classroom, this is a “historic” fact many students will never hear — and that suits politicians just fine.
TOP 5 RIGHT OPINION COLUMNS
OPINION IN BRIEF
American philosopher Robert M. Hutchins (1899-1977): “Education is not to reform students or amuse them or to make them expert technicians. It is to unsettle their minds, widen their horizons, inflame their intellects, teach them to think straight, if possible.”
Columnist Jeff Jacoby: “When one in three Americans is unsure of Obama’s religious affiliation, why should the governor of Wisconsin be expected to weigh in on the matter? Why should any public figure be quizzed about an officeholder’s spiritual beliefs? It is to [Scott] Walker’s credit that he wouldn’t venture a judgment on something he doesn’t know enough about. ‘I’ve actually never talked about it,’ he responded when the [Washington] Post pressed him to confirm Obama’s Christian identity. ‘I’ve never asked him that.’ Perhaps he should have reminded the reporters that in this country, the theological views of political leaders carry no constitutional weight. ‘No religious test shall ever be required as a qualification to any office,’ the Framers specified in Article VI. Candidates for president need not be Christian, and it is not the business of any presidential hopeful to gauge the religious credentials of the current White House incumbent. Nor is it the business of journalists to try to goad them into doing so.”
Columnist Larry Elder: “When actress Patricia Arquette won an Oscar, she pled for ‘wage equality’ for women…. Arquette’s plea comes after the Sony Pictures cyber attack. Publicly disclosed private emails shows that then co-studio chief Amy Pascal paid Jennifer Lawrence less money than her not-as-popular male co-stars in ‘American Hustle’ — and this was after Lawrence starred in the blockbuster ‘Hunger Games.’ When asked why, Ms. Pascal was blunt: ‘Here’s the problem: I run a business. People want to work for less money, I’ll pay them less money. I don’t call them up and say, “Can I give you some more?” Because that’s not what you do when you run a business. The truth is, what women have to do is not work for less money. They have to walk away. People shouldn’t be so grateful for jobs. … People should know what they’re worth.’ Pascal, like Patricia Arquette, is also a contributor to the ‘pay equity’ Democratic Party. For his second term, President Obama wants to combat ‘income inequality.’ To get started, he won’t even have to leave the White House.”
Comedian Argus Hamilton: “The National Institute on Drug Abuse warned against legalization of marijuana after the latest study on pot’s effect on young people. The study discovered that the use of marijuana by teenagers may seriously affect their judgment once they become adults. It’s based on a study of President Obama.”

ISIS and Iran Are Agents of ‘Apocalyptic Islam’ Paving Way for ‘Islamic Messiah
Posted: 26 Feb 2015 09:40 AM PST
Joel Rosenberg speaks at the National Religious Broadcasters’ International Media Conference in Nashville, Tennessee, February 24, 2015.
New York Times Best Selling Author and Middle East expert Joel Rosenberg is sounding the Alarm about “Apocalyptic Islam” that is paving the way for Bible Prophecy to be fulfilled! Speaking in a discussion on Islam at the National Religious Broadcasters’ International Christian Media Convention on Tuesday, he explained that the biggest threat facing the Western world is not the rise of radical Islam, but rather the rise of “apocalyptic Islam.” Raising the concern in the West of the rise of two nation-states — Iran and the Islamic State — with leaders promoting an “apocalyptic” brand of Islam focused on the “annihilation” of the United States and Israel. “We are not simply facing a threat from radical Islam. At the core, we are actually facing something even worse,” Rosenberg told The Christian Post on Wednesday. “We face the threat of apocalyptic Islam. For the first time in human history, we now are faced with two nation-states whose leaders are driven by an end-of-the-world [theology].” Joel Rosenberg stress that Iran’s purpose for wanting to build up its nuclear arms program is so that it can one day destroy Israel and the United States in order to pave the path for the coming of the “Mahdi” (Islamic Messiah).

Are you looking out for the kingdom or your own personal gain? (Lightstock/Dollar photo club)
Article By JOSEPH MATTERA – Ever since the Western and Eastern branches of Christianity divided in the 11th century, some of the greatest fears of the once united Christendom has been realized—fragmentation and division. Even in the 16th century when Martin Luther led the Protestant Reformation, there was the hope that there would only be a few major expressions of the body of Christ—never in their wildest dreams did the reformers envision all the denominations and now various branches and networks of Christianity that have evolved—which has given opportunity for a spirit of lawlessness, independence and empire building among some insecure but gifted leaders. Whether all these expressions are of God or not is not the purpose of this article. However, the following will show us some signs revealing when the motivation to build a church, ministry or network is akin to when the human race attempted to build their own empire-epitomized by the “Tower of Babel” which God judged and scattered across the whole earth.

Weather Manipulation has been discussed in the past and many insist it is being carried out regularly thru HAARP and now scientists are planning to use drones to carry it out, a practice that was long described as being nothing more than a “conspiracy theory,” despite a treaty signed by the U.S. in 1977 prohibiting the tactic from being used militarily. A team of meteorologists with Nevada’s Desert Research Institute in Reno are creating a “first-of-its-kind drone to take the seeding process high in the sky,” according to a recent report by CBS San Francisco. The drones are expected to carry out “cloud seeding,” a practice that can reportedly generate 10 percent more rain during a storm, a controversial operation that some say is toxic to humans and wildlife.

Netanyahu Says Obama And West Have ‘Given Up’ On A Non-Nuclear Iran
Israeli Prime Minister exposes Obama’s agenda for what it truly is
“Let them all be confounded and turned back that hate Zion.” Psalm 129:5 (KJV)
Benjamin Netanyahu spoke some serious truth today when he said that Obama and his administration has given up on their promise to keep the nation of Iran non-nuclear. That is 100%, dead on truth. But if Netanyahu had the liberty, I am sure he would of gone further by saying that Obama never had any intention of a non-nuclear Iran. That would be 100% truth as well.
JERUSALEM, ISRAEL – Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Wednesday rebuffed criticism in Washington of his plans to speak in Congress, accusing world powers of forsaking a pledge to prevent Tehran from acquiring nuclear weapons.
“I respect the White House and the President of the United States but on such a fateful matter, that can determine whether or not we survive, I must do everything to prevent such a great danger for Israel,” Netanyahu said in a speech.
He said world powers had pledged to prevent Iran from acquiring nuclear weapons, adding that “from the agreement coming together it appears they have given up on this commitment“.

Pamela Geller Exposes America’s Dirty Secret: 22 Islamic Terror Training Camps On US Soil
The U.S. has at least 22 Islamist Terror training camps, hiding in plain sight. These camps are operated by the Pakistan-based group Jamaat al-Fuqra and its main US front group, Muslims of the Americas.
The reason that Pamela Geller, of Atlas Shrugs fame, gives for these camps being left alone to grow is that the group Jamaal al-Fuqra is not listed as a terrorist group by the U.S. government, and they are reluctant to interfere.
You’ve heard of “No-Go Zones?” Well, these camps are those zones. This is sharia law in action. Are you shocked? Honestly, I’m numb at this point.
Most of these camp sites can be found on the following map:
Geller goes on to say that that most of the members of these camps are African-Americans who have converted to Islam while doing time in state or federal prison.
“Prisons have become recruitment and training centers for future jihadists. It is an escalating crisis that is taking a toll, as Americans are murdered by those who convert to Islam in prison.
The rising influence of Islam in our prisons is due to a disproportionately high number of Muslims who are incarcerated, skyrocketing conversion rates, powerful Muslim gangs, the proliferation of Muslim chaplains, an uninformed prison power structure, and the outside influence of Islamic terror organizations.
Oh, and the fact that the FBI isn’t allowed to say “Islam,” “jihad,” or target the very people who are trying to kill us as part of America’s dangerous ride on the Dhimmi bandwagon.
Muslim incarceration rate
Muslims comprise 15% of the prison population. This number far exceeds the percentage of Muslims in the general population. It is eighteen times greater, to be exact. Put another way, there are about 2.4 million Muslims in the United States and 350,000 of them are in jail. That means more than 12%* of Muslims in America are incarcerated.
Reports on the number of prisoners who convert to Islam vary and are framed in different ways. Some sources estimate 40,000 prisoners per year convert. Others put the numbers closer to 135,000 per year. Some posit that 80% of inmates who “find faith while in prison convert to Islam.”
One thing is for sure: The majority of those who convert to Islam in prison are black, with as many as one in three black prisoners converting. (The number of Hispanic prisoners converting to Islam is also on the rise.)”  – source
Geller, who has been tracking these camps since 2007, also says:
“Probably they haven’t been raided because Jamaat al-Fuqra is not listed as a terrorist group by the U.S. government and because there is a great reluctance among government and law enforcement agencies across the board, no matter who is president, to appear to be anti-Muslim.These compounds say they’re peaceful Muslim communities, and the government wants to give the impression that such things can exist in the U.S. without any trouble.
A 1991 raid after a foiled MOA Toronto bomb plot caused a compound 70 miles south of Dallas to be raided. Federal officials found loose ammunition and books on counter-terrorism techniques and weaponry.”
According to WorldNetDaily, “A 2007 FBI record states that members of the group have been involved in at least 10 murders, one disappearance, three firebombings, one attempted firebombing, two explosive bombings, and one attempted bombing.”
So there you have it, my fellow Americans. Looks like we are sitting ducks, unless something is done about this. It may very well come down to the American people stepping in to save our country — unless it is just too late.
