How Iran Could Get Nuclear Weapons On Biden’s Watch

Could Iran develop a nuclear weapon on President Biden’s watch? Yes.

While Democrats might blame President Donald Trump’s abrogation of the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) for recent Iranian nuclear violations, they should not: The 2015 Iran deal reversed decades of non-proliferation precedent which demanded a complete accounting and dismantlement of nuclear infrastructure. Exculpating Iran due to hatred of Trump also ignores that Iran is treaty-bound to uphold its Non-Proliferation Treaty Safeguards Agreement commitments.

To understand just how close the Islamic Republic is to nuclear weapons, consider the three general components of a nuclear weapons capability: enrichment, warhead design, and delivery. Iran has worked on all three. The International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) chronicled Iran’s possible military dimensions in a public report almost a decade ago: Iran had worked on warhead design, detonators, weapon modeling, and procurement. While Biden’s team may say that the JCPOA stopped such activity, Iran’s accounting to the IAEA fell short, the regime sought to hide the archive of its work, and the knowledge already developed does not go away.

The JCPOA and its corollary, UN Security Council Resolution 2231, reversed legal precedent to enable Iranian missile work under the guise of a satellite launch program. While some officials debate Iran’s missile capability, they ignore another reality: While the Pentagon might seek precision and perfection, the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps may not. A dirty bomb carried by ship obviates the need for an intercontinental ballistic missile or, for that matter, the perfect warhead. Joseph Wouk’s warsclerotic read more

How Will The Press Treat Biden?

The Lone Cactus

We saw how the liberal mainstream media treated Donald Trump. It was rapid-fire, accusatory, and sometimes just plain, outright disdain in their questions. It raised a few folks at CNN or MSNBC to almost celebrity status. People like Jim Acosta became famous for his combative style in questioning anything and everything the White House did.

Now it’s Biden’s turn.

And now, there are, believe it or not, a bunch of conservative media outlets that are out for blood. Yes, Fox News probably will be one of them, but there are several others like the Sinclair Broadcast Group, the Daily Caller, OAN, and Gateway Pundit. And they are chomping at the bit to get to see Joe Biden face to face and ask questions…questions that haven’t been scripted for him with the answers awaiting Sleepy Joe on the teleprompter.

Will Newsome Get The Heave-Ho?

The Lone Cactus

Beleaguered California Governor, Gavin Newsome is not a popular man in the Golden State these days. With his “Do as I say, not as I do” examples of telling people to hunker down at home, while he attends a birthday party sans masks at a tony bay area French restaurant, he has upset an awful lot of people. How many?
Well, as of this writing, it’s about 1.4 million. That’s how many have signed a petition to recall the California CEO and replace him with someone that will handle Coronavirus a little more, um, shall we say, mature?

Newsome isn’t alone. Lots of folks all over the country are feeling the heat as the Year of the COVID gets set to enter year two. But so far, he’s the only Governor that is possibly facing recall.

Over this past weekend, two groups seeking his recall added a ton of signatures…

Liberalism Gone Amuk

The Lone Cactus

It’s really the biggest problem I have with liberals. They don’t know when to quit. Oh, they may have a good idea now and again. I’ve always said, “Everybody has a good idea, but not every idea is a good one.” And while I differ in philosophy with them in believing I’d rather trust the marketplace to solve the majority of our ills, not government, I get where they are coming from. But what grinds me to my core is when liberals come up with an idea, and just keep grinding away with it. It’s like they don’t know when to stop.

And that is precisely what’s happening in today’s society.

Let’s visit San Francisco for a moment. I SAID FOR A MOMENT…we’re not going to live there. Watch your step, we don’t want you stepping in human feces or on used drug needles. We’re going to visit their school…

Libertarianism in Pictures

International Liberty

Since yesterday’s column showed “Statism in Five Images,” I feel obliged to provide equal time and now do the same thing for libertarianism.

We’ll start with an accurate depiction of how libertarians compare to other ideologies (similar to the triangle I created back in 2019).

If you prefer a shorter way of describing libertarians, this image is a decent summary.

By the way, if you want to know whether you’re a libertarian, just take one of these quizzes.

And, if you get a high score, you don’t necessarily have to become a weird libertarian. Like the guy in this image.

It’s better to be the kind of libertarian (you have 24 choices) who gets into pointless arguments.

For what it’s worth, I’m the type of person who became a libertarian simply because I don’t like the inane, foolish, corrupt, destructive, petty, nonsensical

The Essence Of Joe

Be Sure You’re Right, Then Go Ahead

“Joe Biden may look like Jeff Dunham’s ventriloquist dummy, Walter, but I think even Walter makes a lot more sense.” — Bernard Goldberg

Joe Biden has brought a breath of stale air to an Oval Office that’s already beginning to smell like Barack Obama’s dirty socks. This should come as no surprise considering that Geriatric Joe is a serial plagiarist whose last original thought occurred during the Nixon Administration.

“I made some mistakes,” Biden, then a U.S. senator, told the press [in 1987]. “But now, the exaggerated shadow of those mistakes has begun to obscure the essence of my candidacy and the essence of Joe Biden.”

The essence of Joe Biden is the same now as it has always been, that of a prevaricating and opportunistic polecat, with apologies to the polecat. Added to the essential Joe in this year’s model is a heaping spoonful of dementia and a few…

In WHEN THE ART OF POLITICS BECOMES HOLDING CHILDREN HOSTAGE — PART 1 | Prince William-Manassas Family Alliance (familyallianceonline.org) we considered the unwillingness of local area school boards to reopen our public schools. Where is the obstruction coming from? Well, there is a national driving force, money.

White House chief of staff Ron Klain defended teachers unions, whose members refuse to return to the classroom despite a federal government report that schools can reopen safety during the coronavirus pandemic, denying that educators are “overruling studies.”

​”​I’ll give you a word, money. That’s why the president of the United States sent a plan into Congress even before he took office, to make the investments you need to make the school safe​,” Klain said on CNN in…

SUNDAY COLUMN: The Quiet Destruction of Britain

This could just as easily be the USA, just substitute the word America in place of  Britain.

SUNDAY COLUMN: The Quiet Destruction of Britain

Anne Marie Waters

Sunday 31st January 2021

 

Ever since the criminal communist thugs of Black Lives Matter (BLM) illegally rioted across the UK with the help of the police, a shocking 69 of Britain’s statues, street names and memorials have been altered or attacked.  The left-wing media is celebrating this fact.

The Guardian describes it like this:

Scores of tributes to slave traders, colonialists and racists have been taken down or will be removed across the UK, a Guardian investigation has found, with hundreds of others under review by local authorities and institutions.

In what was described by historians as an “unprecedented” public reckoning with Britain’s slavery and colonial past, an estimated 39 names – including streets, buildings and schools – and 30 statues, plaques and other memorials have been or are undergoing changes or removal since last summer’s Black Lives Matter protests.

It seems that protest works.  It just depends what side of the political divide you are on.  If you protest to protect Britain’s heritage, you’ll be dismissed as “far right”.  This is exactly what happened last summer when I and hundreds of others travelled to London to defend the statue of Britain’s favourite Prime Minister Winston Churchill.  The central London memorial of our country’s war-time leader was defaced, and to our government’s utter shame, was covered in a steel box for weeks.

United States Versus America

United States Versus America

For Britain International Member (USA)

29th January 2021

What, exactly, is “America”?  Did it exist before 1776?  During the War between the States?  Will it outlive the federal government?

If we think of America as an oak tree, then the acorn came from England.  The idea of the Rule of Law, expressed in the Magna Carta of 1215, proclaimed that the King himself was bound by the Law, meaning that he could not make law at his pleasure.  The English theory is that the Law makes the State, while the Continental theory is that the State makes the Law.  Nations have a binary choice between these two philosophies.  If they choose the latter, totalitarian regimes will always result, which will consider their decrees legal by definition.  This was the defense that Hitler’s lieutenants gave at the Nuremberg Trials: that everything they did was legal within the context of German law at the time.  They viewed law in terms of raw power, but the British and American judges who sentenced them to death believed that Law should uphold specific rights.  No human institution can put a lien on these rights because they are God-given, hence the forgotten meaning of the word “unalienable.”  Any “law” that permits the violation of these rights is not a law at all, but rather an illegal statute.

To protect the rights of the individual, the English Constitution enshrined certain immutable principles that make a government lawful.  These principles include the Rule of Law, Government by Consent, and Sovereignty.  No government can repudiate these principles without sawing off the branch it sits on.  For example, by governing without consent, the State divests itself of all lawful authority.  However, a democratic mandate from the majority does not give a government carte blanche to do whatever it pleases against the minority.  It must protect the rights of all citizens and provide equal justice without favor.  English people brought these ideas with them to North America, where they formed the basis of the Revolution and U.S. Constitution.

If America is an oak tree, then the United States is the forest ranger tasked to defend it.  America is not the same thing as the United States.  America is the Idea that “all Men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness—That to secure these Rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just Powers from the Consent of the Governed.”  However, the government, whose duty it is to protect our rights, can become evil, corrupt, and tyrannical—it can become the Master of the people rather than the Servant; it can become the Oppressor rather than the Protector.  Jefferson therefore wrote that “whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these Ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it.”

The United States government has become destructive of the Ends for which it was formed.  This is not due to any flaw in the Constitution of the United States; rather, it is due to a successful war against the Constitution.  Our Sovereignty and liberties have been attacked from two fronts: multinational corporate monstrosities, such as Google, Facebook, and Amazon, which want to strip people of their financial independence and create a world without borders; and foreign adversaries, chiefly China.  It is no secret that these interests have American politicians bought and paid-for at every level of government.  We are compromised.  The enemy is inside the gates.

America rejected this silent take-over by electing Donald Trump in 2016.  President Trump wanted to drain the swamp, but found it undrainable.  For his valiant efforts, the globalist elites of the media, big tech, the deep state, and the Chinese communist party fought a shameful campaign of subversion against him which culminated in a stolen election in 2020.  This shows who truly holds power over the country.  And it is not the American people.

If certain States hold rigged elections with predetermined winners, they effectively rob the entire country of suffrage.  The Supreme Court held in Bush v. Gore that “the right of suffrage can be denied by a debasement or dilution of the weight of a citizen’s vote just as effectively as by wholly prohibiting the free exercise of the franchise.”  The Democrat party, in cooperation with corrupt state and local officials, might not take away your one legal ballot, but they will forge a hundred illegal ones to render yours meaningless.

The Supreme Court had a golden opportunity to stop this robbery against the American people.  Texas brought a lawsuit against Georgia, Pennsylvania, Michigan, and Wisconsin for violating their own election codes in such an abysmal manner.  Source here.

Under Article III of the Constitution, the Supreme Court was obliged to take this case: “The judicial Power of the United States, shall be vested in one supreme Court . . . [and] shall extend to Controversies between two or more States.”  The Court declined the case with the flimsy excuse that Texas did not have “standing” (a word to be found nowhere in the Constitution), and thereby betrayed the American people.

Our elections are not elections anymore.  We will continue having them for the sake of appearances, but they will be just as meaningful as elections in the Soviet Union were.

The forest ranger has an axe, and he’s attacking the tree.

The good news though, is that the tree is still alive.  America lives.  The seventy-four million patriots who voted for President Trump are the proof.  (Indeed, we probably number more than that, since we know that many ballots were dumped, flipped, and fractionalized).  But we are living in imminent danger.  The States that want freedom will soon be enslaved by the States that want fascism.  The Union is no longer a bond of brotherhood; it is a chain of imprisonment.  To restore freedom and democracy, American patriots must break the chain.  If the blue states want a totalitarian hell on earth, let them have it.  Why should we consent to be dragged down with them?

Secession is legal under our Constitution for the following reasons: For Britain read more
