Kayla Mueller, 26, was taken prisoner by ISIS in 2013, she was raped and tortured by Baghdadi until she was murdered in 2015. Her parents revealed how they went to Syria to find her body after learning she had been killed (pictured: Baghdadi, left; Mueller, right; and the ISIS chief's last hideout, inset). President Donald Trump praised Mueller as a 'beautiful young woman' on Sunday when he announced the death of the leader of the so-called caliphate, who blew himself up, along with three of his children, during a raid by US special forces. 'We just learned that the whole thing was dedicated to Kayla thanks to General [Mark] Milley and it's very touching,' Carl Mueller said on Sunday. 'President Trump mentioned her today in his statement and he mentioned that he deserved what he got for what he did to Kayla. ... she's not forgotten, and that's important.'

President Barack Obama said it was nearly impossible to rig an election during a joint press conference with Italian Prime Minister Matteo Renzi only around a couple months ago.
He is now punishing Russia for allegedly doing what he previously said was unfeasible.
“I’ve never seen in my lifetime or in modern political history any presidential candidate trying to discredit the elections and the election process before votes have even taken place,” Obama said, in response to comments then-Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump made. “No serious person out there who would suggest somehow that you could even rig America’s elections.”
President-elect Donald Trump said during a campaign rally in Columbus, Ohio, in August that he was afraid the election was going to be rigged, citing, amongst other things, the fact that the Democratic National Committee colluded to make former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton the nominee instead of Senator Bernie Sanders.
Lisa Page, former legal counsel to former FBI Director Andrew Mc Cabe, testified that the Justice Department weighed in against charging former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton with 'gross negligence' in connection to her email scandal. The former FBI lawyer's interview transcript before two GOP-run committees has been released. She said the Justice Department viewed the charge as 'viewed it as constitutionally vague.'

WASHINGTON – Why do so many Americans still believe Barack Obama was born in Kenya?
Maybe because he keeps insisting it’s so.
He did again last week, while visiting his ancestral homeland of Kogelo.
Participating in the opening of Sauti Kuu Resource Center, a youth facility built by his half-sister, Auma Obama, he said: “Now, three years ago, I visited Kenya as the first sitting American president to come from Kenya. When I was president it was a little bit harder to get up here cause my plane didn’t fit the tarmac up here.”
Yes maybe a joke, but maybe not....

President Donald Trump clearly enjoys using his Twitter account to prime our already impish elites for a day of flailing, a week of wailing. This time, we were treated to career diplomats, professional babblers and esteemed fact-checkers, all in a hurry to show their man Barack Obama was, despite all objective evidence, a real tough guy.
Like a skinny-armed “Guernica,” the blob howled out its independent, completely individual rulings.
“President Trump Tweeted He’s Been Tougher on Russia Than Obama. That’s Not True,” Time magazine decreed. “Trump tweets that he’s been tougher on Russia than Obama — but he hasn’t been,” CNBC declared. “Mostly False,” Politifact chimed in. “No, Trump Hasn’t Been Harder on Russia Than Obama,” Mother Jones echoed a day later.
Nicholas Burns, a former Hillary Clinton adviser, tweeted that Trump hasn’t “defended us” from Russia, citing Obama’s expulsion of 35 diplomats, closing of two compounds and economic sanctions. The Hill, in its write-up, cited Mr. Burns as “a veteran U.S. diplomat and current Harvard professor,” notably leaving out his failed stint at electing Clinton. Pretty kooky.
The Russian attorney now at the center of suspicions of the Trump campaign's alleged collusion with the Kremlin was allowed into the country by the Justice Department under former President Barack Obama, it was reported on Thursday.Natalia Veselnitskaya was allowed into the United States in late 2015 under 'extraordinary circumstances' even though she did not have a visa, according to The Hill.
The news site is reporting that Veselnitskaya was permitted to enter the country by then-Attorney General Loretta Lynch, who granted her a 'special immigration parole' so that she could adequately defend a client under criminal investigation. At the time, Veselnitskaya was representing a Russian businessman, Denis Katsyv, who was being investigated by the Justice Department for alleged money laundering.
The US charged Katsyv's company Prevezon Holdings as part of a $230 million tax fraud case. That case was settled for $6 million in May.
Katsyv has also faced financial difficulties due to the Magnistky Act, a 2012 US law that placed financial sanctions on Russian officials and businesses.
The Russian government has long sought to have the Magnitsky Act, which passed with bipartisan support in Congress, overturned.

The sordid history of American presidents trying to overthrow enemy countries and assassinate leaders of those nations is not new. In fact, there was a strong case at one time for presidents to do whatever they had to do to protect American interests and democracy. To the left, these claims are seen as propaganda coming from fascist right-leaning Americans and antagonistic to the facts. You see, it appears that these liberals constantly refer to Nixon and his wars when making their claims about right-winged schemes to demolish democratically elected governments that at are odds with United States capitalistic and business interests. Let's examine the truth about such claims and see whether or not presidents from both parties saw a need to meddle in foreign countries internal affairs. The follow experts are from Wikipedia:
JFK and Vietnam: “The arrest and assassination of Ngô Đình Diệm, then president of South Vietnam, marked the culmination of a successful CIA-backed coup d’état led by General Dương Văn Minh in November 1963. On the morning of November 2, 1963, Diệm and his adviser, younger brother Ngô Đình Nhu, were arrested after the Army of the Republic of Vietnam (ARVN) had been successful in a bloody overnight siege on Gia Long Palace in Saigon. The coup was the culmination of nine years of autocratic and nepotistic family rule in South Vietnam. Discontent with the Diệm regime had been simmering below the surface, and exploded with mass Buddhist protests against long-standing religious discrimination after the government shooting of protesters who defied a ban on the flying of the Buddhist flag.
When rebel forces entered the palace, the Ngô brothers were not present, as they had escaped the night before to a loyalist shelter in Cholon. The brothers had kept in communication with the rebels through a direct link from the shelter to the palace, and misled them into believing that they were still in the palace. The Ngô brothers soon agreed to surrender and were promised safe exile; after being arrested, they were instead executed in the back of an armoured personnel carrier by ARVN officers on the journey back to military headquarters at Tân Sơn Nhứt Air Base.
While no formal inquiry was conducted, the responsibility for the deaths of the Ngô brothers is commonly placed on Minh’s bodyguard, Captain Nguyễn Văn Nhung, and on Major Dương Hiếu Nghĩa, both of whom guarded the brothers during the trip. Minh’s army colleagues and US officials in Saigon agreed that Minh ordered the executions. They postulated various motives, including that the brothers had embarrassed Minh by fleeing the Gia Long Palace, and that the brothers were killed to prevent a later political comeback. The generals initially attempted to cover up the execution by suggesting that the brothers had committed suicide, but this was contradicted when photos of the Ngôs’ bloodied bodies surfaced in the media.
Kennedy learned of the deaths on the following morning when National Security Council staffer Michael Forrestal rushed into the cabinet room with a telegram reporting the Ngo brothers' suicides. According to General Maxwell Taylor, "Kennedy leaped to his feet and rushed from the room with a look of shock and dismay on his face which I had never seen before." Kennedy had planned that Diem would be safely exiled and Arthur Schlesinger recalled that the U.S. president was "somber and shaken". Kennedy later penned a memo, lamenting that the assassination was "particularly abhorrent" and blaming himself for approving Cable 243, which authorised Lodge to explore coup options in the wake of Nhu's attacks on the Buddhist pagodas. Forrestal said that “It shook him personally...bothered him as a moral and religious matter. It shook his confidence, I think, in the kind of advice he was getting about South Vietnam.” When Kennedy was consoled by a friend who told him he need not feel sorry for the Ngo brothers on the grounds of despotism, Kennedy replied “No. They were in a difficult position. They did the best they could for their country.”
Here is what Wikipedia writes about the Nixon/Allende affair:
“Salvador Isabelino del Sagrado Corazón de Jesús Allende Gossens (Spanish pronunciation: [salβaˈðoɾ aˈʝende ˈɣosens]; 26 June 1908 – 11 September 1973) was a Chilean physician and is generally considered the first democratically elected Marxist to become president of a country in the Americas.
“The possibility of Allende winning Chile's 1970 election was deemed a disaster by a US government who wanted to protect US business interests and prevent any spread of communism during the Cold War. In September 1970, President Nixon informed the CIA that an Allende government in Chile would not be acceptable and authorized $10 million to stop Allende from coming to power or unseat him. The CIA's plans to impede Allende's investiture as President of Chile were known as "Track I" and "Track II"; Track I sought to prevent Allende from assuming power via so-called "parliamentary trickery", while under the Track II initiative, the CIA tried to convince key Chilean military officers to carry out a coup.
“During Nixon's presidency, U.S. officials attempted to prevent Allende's election by financing political parties aligned with opposition candidate Jorge Alessandri and supporting strikes in the mining and transportation sectors.
“After General Pinochet assumed power, United States Secretary of State Henry Kissinger told President Richard Nixon that the U.S. "didn't do it," but "we helped them...created the conditions as great as possible." (referring to the coup itself). Recent documents declassified under the Clinton administration's Chile Declassification Project show that the United States government and the CIA sought the overthrow of Allende in 1970 immediately before he took office ("Project FUBELT"), but claims of their direct involvement in the 1973 coup are not proven by any publicly available documentary evidence, although many documents still remain classified.”
So what are the two above examples really about and what does it mean concerning what is going on now in Egypt? The facts, as I will explain this is shocking, and I believe a case for impeachment of President Obama based on treason is in order. Treason?
Michael Savage wrote the other day, "Barack Obama has been playing a critical role in making sure that Egypt, one of our staunchest allies in the Middle East, is positioned to become the next member of the Union of Iranian Radical Islamist Republics headed by Mahmoud Ahmadinejad. Every single word out of the president’s mouth, every single move he’s made has had the effect of stabbing Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak in the back, of opening the door to Islamist radicals taking another step on their way to restoring an unholy caliphate in that region."
I wrote that the other day concerning the farce going on in Egypt and how the Media and the Obama administration are forcing the overthrow of a sovern government on the basis of a few demonstrators, that if the truth were told would be seen to be "planted" and not even Egyptians. 80 million Egyptians are being screwed!
It can be claimed honestly that both Kennedy and Nixon did what they did, maybe against the spirit of American ideology, in the best interest of the American people. Those who see only Nixon's actions as un-American are just blind to the fact that Roosevelt, Eisenhower and John Kennedy did the same things. Eisenhower overthrew the democratically elected government of Iran in the 1950's in-order to place the Shah back on the throne of that nation in insuring the flow of cheap oil. There is no dispute that this is the case. Jimmy Carter, in turn, plotted the toppled of the Shah in his moronic belief that Americans should support only democracies, even if those nations turned out to be enemies of our people. Naïve yes, treasonous no. Being stupid is not a treasonous act and Jimmy Carter is probably the dumbest moron to ever sit in the White House. Next to him, King George II (aka President Bush) looks like a NASA scientist.
When it comes to this latest Egyptian crisis, we are not witnessing a naïve response from a weak moronic president. I believe we are witnessing a cold calculated destruction of American interest and safety by a “Manchurian candidate” who was planted in the White House by evil leftist anti - American, Marxist and Communist to destroy the nation. They chose a constitutional illegal candidate on purpose as a sign of this total hatred to the American Constitution and our way of life! What President Obama has done to our allies is a purposeful plan of destroying American power in the world, and making us vulnerable to attack by our enemies, something I fear will end up causing the deaths of perhaps MILLIONS of Americans in the next twenty years! That, my friends, is TREASON.

COMMUNIST OBAMA: Obama: Top Red's dream come true
Honestly, this list could go to 200 pages long! The facts are evident and plan is clear- Obama and “friends” want to end your way of life as you know it and replace it with anything that is not American in origin. This president is not attempting to overthrow the nations that are our enemies, instead he is overthrowing our ally's governments! The same administration that never raised a word concerning the slaughter of thousands of Iranians last year, now can't stop dictating to our ally just how they should handle their internal problems!
Obama is the real life movie from the 80's called 'TRADING PLACES' where two rich brothers bet one dollar that they could turn a street, dope peddling thug into a Wall Street investor. It appears George Soros and friends made the same bet - picked a former drug peddler (yes this IS a picture of Obama to the left in his drug selling days) and turned this Kenyan born illegal into the the president. In the process, these billionaires made a fortune, when they robbed you of all of your wealth! You just haven't realized it yet!
It is time for Congress to do their job, and frankly, time for US to do OUR JOB and SPEAK OUT FOR AMERICA and for IMPEACHMENT.

The Bible talks about the Lord of the Flies, now we see the flies go to Hillary... a sign? You decide
The administration that makes Nixon look like an apostle of Christ, has done nothing but lie about everything to everybody!
The Obama administration said Thursday that a $400 million cash payment to Iran seven months ago was contingent on the release of a group of American prisoners.
It is the first time the U.S. has so clearly linked the two events, which critics have painted as a hostage-ransom arrangement.
State Department spokesman John Kirby repeated the administration's line that the negotiations to return the Iranian money — from a decades-old military-equipment deal with the U.S.-backed shah in the 1970s — were conducted separately from the talks to free four U.S. citizens in Iran.
But he said the U.S. withheld the delivery of the cash as leverage until Iran permitted the Americans to leave the country.
Speaking on CNN Thursday night, Kirby pushed back at those who interpreted what he said today as confirmation that the U.S. paid 'ransom' to Iran.
'First of all this is Iran's money,' he said. 'No. 2 I think the way ransom works is you have to pay first and then you get your hostages back, and that's not what happened here.'
The disgrace of a president. Evil - Lawless- corrupt!

David Cameron and Barack Obama seemed cheerful as they prepared to get down to business at the NATO summit in Warsaw – but Americans remained in shock after five police officers were gunned down in Dallas
It bothers me a little when conservatives call Barack Obama a "socialist." He certainly is an enemy of the free market, and wants politicians and bureaucrats to make the fundamental decisions about the economy. But that does not mean that he wants government ownership of the means of production, which has long been a standard definition of socialism. What President Obama has been pushing for, and moving toward, is more insidious: government control of the economy, while leaving ownership in private hands. That way, politicians get to call the shots but, when their bright ideas lead to disaster, they can always blame those who own businesses in the private sector. Politically, it is heads-I-win when things go right, and tails-you-lose when things go wrong. This is far preferable, from Obama's point of view, since it gives him a variety of scapegoats for all his failed policies, without having to use President Bush as a scapegoat all the time.
"Just choose from what works"
President Obama has stoked controversy after he suggested to an audience of Argentinian youth that there was no great difference between communism and capitalism and that they should just “choose from what works”.
Obama responded to a question about nonprofit community organizations and the necessity of attracting funding from both the public and private sectors.
“So often in the past there has been a division between left and right, between capitalists and communists or socialists, and especially in the Americas, that’s been a big debate,” Obama said. MORE
Obama dances while Brussels burns: President and Michelle take to the floor to TANGO during glitzy state dinner in Buenos Aires as he ignores calls to come home in wake of terror attacks
Obama was pictured strutting his stuff on the dance floor in Buenos Aires, Argentina, this evening as he continued with a two-day trip to the country despite calls to return home. The President was attending a state dinner with wife Michelle (inset) alongside Argentine President Mauricio Macri and first lady Juliana Awada as part of a trade mission. Obama has called for calm in the wake of the Brussels terror attack which killed at least 34 people on Tuesday, saying that reacting with fear is simply playing into the hands of terrorists. Nine Americans were among the hundreds wounded in the blasts on Tuesday. Critics including Donald Trump, Ted Cruz, John Kasich and former New York mayor Rudy Giuliani have ripped into Obama's stance, however, and accuse him of ignoring the threat that America faces. Obama said he will be sending John Kerry to Brussels on Friday to express his condolences on behalf of the American people and stand in solidarity with Belgium.

Former Secretary of Defense Chuck Hagel has told Foreign Policy Obama betrayed the United States when he ordered the Pentagon to stand down on a retaliatory strike against Damascus in response to the Ghouta chemical attack.
Obama had declared a “red line” on the use of chemical weapons in Syria, but “Assad did it anyway, and Hagel had spent the day approving final plans for a barrage of Tomahawk cruise missile strikes against Damascus. U.S. naval destroyers were in the Mediterranean, awaiting orders to fire,” Foreign Policy reported on Friday.
Instead of green lighting the attack, “Obama told a stunned Hagel to stand down. Assad’s Aug. 21 chemical attack in a Damascus suburb had killed hundreds of civilians, but the president said the United States wasn’t going to take any military action against the Syrian government. The president had decided to ignore his own red line—a decision, Hagel believes, that dealt a severe blow to the credibility of both Obama and the United States.”
We now know al-Assad had nothing to do with the chemical attack. Days after the attack Dale Gavlak and Yahya Ababneh, freelance reporters for the Associated Press interviewed doctors, Ghouta residents, rebel fighters and their families. They presented a different picture than the one pushed by the Obama administration and headlined by the corporate media. MORE
'Devout' US citizen and his Saudi wife left their baby at home to storm office holiday party with automatic weapons and slaughter 14 of his colleagues before dying in bloody police shoot-out
UPDATED Syed Rizwan Farook (pictured inset), who is U.S.-born, and Tashfeen Malik, 27, were killed in a gun battle with police after the mass shooting at a government holiday party held at the Inland Regional Center in San Bernardino. Relatives have said the two were married. San Bernardino Police Chief Jarrod Burguan said Farook, 28, an environmental specialist with the county health department, had attended the party, but left 'angry'. He said a motive is not yet known, but said there did seem to be 'some degree of planning involved' in the attack. He added Farook and Malik were in a relationship, but is it not clear if they were married or engaged. Farook was an environmental specialist with the county health department who sometimes worked at the Inland Regional Center. Farook had reportedly recently traveled to Saudi Arabia, where he married a woman he had met online. Hussam Ayloush, executive director of the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), says the couple left their baby with family Wednesday morning and never returned. Farook's brother-in-law Farhan Khan spoke at a press conference held at the offices of the CAIR in Anaheim to say he was stunned to hear of his relative's involvement in the shooting. Khan, who is married to Farook's sister, said he last spoke to him about a week ago. He said he had 'absolutely no idea why he would do this. I am shocked myself.'

But days before Netanyahu embarks on a visit to the White House, an effort to mend fences after fierce feuding over the Iran nuclear deal that Israel opposes, the timing of the decision to give Baratz the job raised questions.
Within hours of his appointment, Israeli media outlets found a clutch of cuttings, headline-grabbing quotes on Facebook and articles he had penned on news websites. Netanyahu's staff, it appeared, may not have checked. MORE
The illgeal president continues to break the Law, held unaccountable.
A newly leaked internal DHS memorandum produced for an off-the-record agency conclave reveals that the Obama administration is actively planning to circumvent a federal court injunction that suspended part of last November’s deferral-based amnesty initiative. The document, apparently prepared as follow-up from a DHS “Regulations Retreat” last summer, appears sure to re-ignite concerns in Congress as well as federal judges in the Fifth Circuit. The Administration has already been criticized from the bench for handing out work permits to hundreds of thousands of deferred action beneficiaries, in direct violation of a district court’s order. With the Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals deciding any day now whether to deny the Administration’s request to reverse that injunction, this public leak has come at a critical juncture for U.S. enforcement policy.
Last June, four months after Texas federal judge Andrew Hanen’s order to freeze President’s DAPA and Expanded DACA programs—disclosure: the Immigration Reform Law Institute has filed briefs in these cases—DHS’s immigration policy makers apparently held a “Regulations Retreat” to discuss “different options” for “open market Employment Authorization Document (EAD) regulatory changes.” EAD is the statutory term for work permits. From a memo recording these discussions, we now know that the Obama DHS has, rather than pausing to allow the courts to assess the constitutionality of its enforcement nullification initiatives, been gearing up to roll out one or more of four plans drawn up at the meeting, each one designed to provide EADs to millions of nonimmigrants, including those lawfully present and visa overstayers, crippling the actual employment-based visa system on the federal statute-book.

Quotation from Woodrow Wilson's History of the American People as reproduced in the film The Birth of a Nation. (Photo credit: Wikipedia)
The most racist person ever in the White House- and this includes Woodrow Wilson!
A key part of President Obama’s legacy will be the fed’s unprecedented collection of sensitive data on Americans by race. The government is prying into our most personal information at the most local levels, all for the purpose of “racial and economic justice.”
Unbeknown to most Americans, Obama’s racial bean counters are furiously mining data on their health, home loans, credit cards, places of work, neighborhoods, even how their kids are disciplined in school — all to document “inequalities” between minorities and whites.
This Orwellian-style stockpile of statistics includes a vast and permanent network of discrimination databases, which Obama already is using to make “disparate impact” cases against: banks that don’t make enough prime loans to minorities; schools that suspend too many blacks; cities that don’t offer enough Section 8 and other low-income housing for minorities; and employers who turn down African-Americans for jobs due to criminal backgrounds.
Big Brother Barack wants the databases operational before he leaves office, and much of the data in them will be posted online.
So civil-rights attorneys and urban activist groups will be able to exploit them to show patterns of “racial disparities” and “segregation,” even if no other evidence of discrimination exists. MORE
A President only for Black People: 'I'm running for Senate to deal with serious issues blacks face here'
Obama's half-brother sells revealing handwritten letter from 1995 in which president-to-be reveals political ambitions
President Obama's half-brother has sold a handwritten letter the president sent him 20 years ago - revealing he planned to venture into politics to tackle 'some serious issues blacks face here'.
It is the third personal note Malik Abongo 'Roy' Obama has auctioned in recent years.
But this, dated 23 July 1995, is perhaps the most revealing about the president-to-be's political ambitions.
'Some colleagues of mine here have talked me into running for the Illinois State Senate (like being an MP for a province),' Obama, then a 33-year-old lawyer in Chicago, wrote to his paternal brother in Kenya.
'I have agreed, since I have an interest in politics to deal with some serious issues blacks face here.'

Did President Obama deceive Americans with his narrative of the 2011 assassination of Osama bin Laden?
Pulitzer Prize winning investigative reporter Seymour Hersh says so in a narrative published on Sunday.
The renowned author accuses Obama of rushing to take credit for the al-Qaida leader’s death.
“It’s been four years since a group of U.S. Navy SEALs assassinated Osama bin Laden in a night raid on a high-walled compound in Abbottabad, Pakistan,” Hersh writes in an article on the London Review of Books. “The killing was the high point of Obama’s first term, and a major factor in his re-election.”
Hersh argues Obama’s decision – he terms it “high-level lying” – to take credit for bin Laden’s death forced the military and intelligence communities to scramble to corroborate the president’s version of events.

"The U.S. negotiating team are mainly there to speak on Iran’s behalf with other members of the P5+1 countries and convince them of a deal," he said.
He told the station that a number of people attending the talks on Iran's side are reported to be journalists, but that "their main job is to make sure that all the news fed back to Iran goes through their channels."

Sharyl Attkisson is an unreasonable woman. Important people have told her so.
When the longtime CBS reporter asked for details about reinforcements sent to the Benghazi compound during the Sept. 11, 2012 terrorist attack, White House national security spokesman Tommy Vietor replied, “I give up, Sharyl . . . I’ll work with more reasonable folks that follow up, I guess.”
Another White House flack, Eric Schultz, didn’t like being pressed for answers about the Fast and Furious scandal in which American agents directed guns into the arms of Mexican drug lords. “Goddammit, Sharyl!” he screamed at her. “The Washington Post is reasonable, the LA Times is reasonable, The New York Times is reasonable. You’re the only one who’s not reasonable!”
Two of her former bosses, CBS Evening News executive producers Jim Murphy and Rick Kaplan, called her a “pit bull.”
That was when Sharyl was being nice.
Now that she’s no longer on the CBS payroll, this pit bull is off the leash and tearing flesh off the behinds of senior media and government officials. In her new memoir/exposé “Stonewalled: My Fight for Truth Against the Forces of Obstruction, Intimidation, and Harassment in Obama’s Washington” (Harper), Attkisson unloads on her colleagues in big-time TV news for their cowardice and cheerleading for the Obama administration while unmasking the corruption, misdirection and outright lying of today’s Washington political machine.

Saudi commentator: ‘He is gambling with the future of the region’
JERUSALEM—With Washington cozying up to Tehran as nuclear negotiations approach countdown stage, Arab media in the region are lashing out at the United States for jilting its Arab allies.
Unlike Israelis, who are focused on the danger of nuclear weapons in the hands of a regime calling for their country’s elimination, citizens of Arab states are concerned about Iran’s imperial ambitions. The nuclear threat is seen as a tool to further those ambitions rather than a direct threat.
Khaled Al-Dahil, a Saudi political commentator writing in the London-based daily Al-Hayat, said the Obama administration is allowing Iran and its Shiite militias to operate freely in Iraq and Syria in order to advance the signing of a nuclear agreement. “Why does Obama consider it necessary to reach such an agreement? Because his objective is to tie the Iranians’ hands for 10-15 years in hopes that by then Iran will have a new leadership and will become a different country—perhaps a democratic country with less of a desire for nuclear weapons. This perception is superficial and faulty because it is based on dreams that are more like delusions. He is gambling with the future of the region.” MORE

JERUSALEM (AP) - Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has declared victory after a tight national election appeared to give him the upper hand in forming the country's next coalition government.
In a statement released on Twitter, Netanyahu says that "against all odds" his Likud party and the nationalist camp secured a "great victory."
Initial exit polls showed Netanyahu's Likud Party deadlocked with the center-left Zionist Union.
But the results indicated that Netanyahu will have an easier time cobbling together a majority coalition with hard-line and religious allies.
Netanyahu said he had already begun to call potential partners.
