U.S. Officials Reveal Obama’s Iran Deal Violates Federal Law

BEFUKY BarackObamaValerieJarrettWestWestWingliesabouttheIrandeal

According to senior U.S. officials in the Obama administration, Barack Obama’s implementation of his legacy achievement, the Iran nuclear deal is in violation of a federal law Obama signed back in 2012.

Fox News by James Rosen

At issue is a passage tucked away in ancillary paperwork attached to the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action, or JCPOA, as the Iran nuclear deal is formally known. Specifically, Section 5.1.2 of Annex II provides that in exchange for Iranian compliance with the terms of the deal, the U.S. “shall…license non-U.S. entities that are owned or controlled by a U.S. person to engage in activities with Iran that are consistent with this JCPOA.”

In short, this means that foreign subsidiaries of U.S. parent companies will, under certain conditions, be allowed to do business with Iran. The problem is that the Iran Threat Reduction and Syria Human Rights Act (ITRA), signed into law by President Obama in August 2012, was explicit in closing the so-called “foreign sub” loophole….

“Existing U. S. statutes trump executive agreements.” Obama must be challenged on this.

Only a lawless petard like Barack Obama would sign a law and then violate it three years later.

The Office of the Commander in Chief will never be the same.




The Council Has Spoken! – Our Watcher’s Council Results



The Council has spoken, the votes have been cast, and the results are in for this week’s Watcher’s Council match up.

“One must remember that the Jews have one, tiny country, the only place they have the right and capability to defend themselves by themselves. And it is our duty and my responsibility to see that we will never compromise about that. – Ariel Sharon (Z”L)

Peace is purchased from strength. It’s not purchased from weakness or unilateral retreats. – Benyamin Netanyahu

“One fulfills his national duty voluntarily, as best as one can.” – PLO Spokesman and Executive Committee member Mahmoud Ismail on official PA TV, using the term ‘a national duty’ to describe the murder of Eitam and Naama Henkin (HY”D) in front of four of their children.

“” When we are in a position where – through no fault of our own – physical force dominates, only one question can be asked: what is worse? To continue watching Jews being killed and the conviction grows that our lives our cheap, and among the whole world that we are spineless?…the blackest of all characteristics is the tradition of the cheapness of Jewish blood, on the shedding of which there is no prohibition and for which you do not pay.” – Ze’ev Jabotinsky


This week’s winning essay,Joshuapundit’sTwo Speeches And Some Funerals. It is my reaction to recent events in Israel and in Jerusalem, and yes, their ultimate effect on America. Here’s a slice:

Anyone remotely following the news from Israel knows that some serious violence has broken out there. As usual, the media bends over backwards to paint this as a ‘cycle of violence’ for which both sides are responsible. This is an outrageous, Newspeak lie, and as I’ll show you, it has some serious implications for America,believe it or not.

Mahmoud Abbas and the Palestinian Authority have long practiced a double game perfected by Abbas’s old chief, Yasser Arafat. The idea is to mouth platitudes in English while funding and encouraging genocide against Jews in Arabic in the PLO’s schools, mosques and media. And the current explosion of violence against Israel’s Jews is directly linked to this tactic.

Abbas’s recent speeches have literally involved marching orders to the Arabs whom call themselves Palestinians to violently attack Jews, primarily but not limited to Jerusalem.

Abbas was preparing the ground as long ago as September 17, just prior to the Jewish High Holy Days, saying: “Every drop of blood that has been spilled in Jerusalem is holy blood as long as it was for Allah. Every Martyr (Shahid) will reach Paradise, and everyone wounded will be rewarded, Allah willing.’ … We will not allow them to carry out their actions and divide the Al-Aqsa [Mosque], and stated: ‘The Al-Aqsa [Mosque] is ours, and they have no right to defile it with their filthy feet. We will not allow them to, and we will do everything in our power to protect Jerusalem.”

At the same time, the signals to attack Jews were amplified in th3e mosques, schools and media of ‘Palestine’ as they always are.

The Muslim Waqf which controls the al-Aksa mosque allowed the stockpiling of rocks, firebombs and iron bars on the mosque specifically to attack Jews worshiping at the Kotel(the Western Wall) below.

They deliberately sought to provoke a reaction from Israeli security forces.

In case you think mere rocks are no problem, I invite you to read this woman’s account of being assaulted by the brave ‘Palestinian’ warriors.

Other attacks were planned and carried out against Israelis without warning, with cars being particularly vulnerable because of their orange Israeli license plates.

One of the first to die was Alexander Levlovitz, who was murdered when his car was attacked in the neighborhood of Har Homa. His wife and baby were injured by shards of broken glass.

Alexander Levlovitz

One Israeli woman was actually pulled from her car after it was stoned and was only saved from assault and worse by Israeli passerbys who fired on the crowd.

Mahmoud Abbas’s recent speech in the UN has to be seen in the context of the terrorist attacks he and Fatah were and are encouraging.

In it, he talked of ‘a year of a new war of genocide perpetrated against the Palestinian people’ and ‘the historic injustice inflicted on the Palestinian people in Al-Nakba of 1948, the occupying Power has chosen to defy the entire world by launching its war on Gaza, by which its jets and tanks brutally assassinated lives and devastated the homes, schools and dreams of thousands of Palestinian children, women and men and in reality destroying the remaining hopes for peace.’

Actually, it’s the other way around. The real attempted genocide is being launched by the Arabs whom call themselves Palestinians against Israel’s Jews.

Abbas also said that the Palestinian Authority was no longer bound by Oslo or any other agreements it has signed with Israel. That was really no big news since they have never abided by the terms of Oslo anyway, and Selim Fayyad, the former PLO PM made it clear some time ago.

Under US law and the terms of the agreements, this should have resulted in a suspension of funding for ‘Palestine.’ Don’t hold your breath. Instead, the ‘Palestinian’ flag was raised at the UN for the first time, in spite of the fact that only member nations are supposed to be allowed to do so.Deceitful, which is how both Benyamin Netanyahu and virtually every Israeli figure of note referred to the speech hardly covers this tissue of lies.

The speech, by the way was attended by America’s UN ambassador and President Obama, neither of whom attended Israeli PM Benyamin Netanyahu’s subsequent speech on which more later. But it was obviously the signal for more terrorist attacks.

Eitam and Naama Henkin of Neria, who were murdered in a drive-by terror attack near Nablus on Thursday, October 1, 2015. (screen capture, Channel 2)

Eitam and Naama Henkin (HY”D) , were murdered in a drive by shooting by Arabs belonging to the al-Aksa Martyrs brigade, part of Fatah. They were killed in front of four of their children. According to investigators, Eitem used his last strength to open the car door and tell his four children aged aged 4 months, 4, 7 and 9 to flee and hide. That and the fact that the alarm had been raised is all that saved them. Eitam Henkin, by the way, was an America citizen, and our Secretary of State’s response was a pro forma condemnation and an urge for both sides to ‘reduce tension.’

One of the weapons involved was a U.S. M-16 provided for PLO ‘security forces.’

Thousands of Israelis attended their funeral…and a particularly poignant moment was when their nine-year old son recited kaddish for his parents, the Jewish prayer for the dead. The Henkins left six children to be raised by their grandparents.

Aside from throwing rocks and firebombs, another tactic being used is random stabbings. There have been multiple attacks of this sort.

One of the more serious ones involved the murder of Rabbi Nehemia Lavi, 41, and Aharon Banita, 21 (HY’D)and the stabbing and wounding of Mrs. Banita and her baby as Arab onlookers applauded, spat on them and kicked them.

Here’s how the BBC reported this attack:

The attacks have continued, without even a faux condemnation by the PLO or Abbas. And why not? This is exactly what they’ve encouraged and planned.

The Million Man Fraud Comes To Washington


, , , , ,

BEFUNKY screenshot million man march poster 002

Front Page Magazine by Matthew Vadum

Rioting at this weekend’s Washington, D.C. gripe-fest celebrating the 20th anniversary of the endlessly hyped, misnamed Million Man March, seems like a definite possibility.

Just this week 12 people were arrested in Hartford, Conn., for disorderly conduct after blocking traffic and access to the University of Hartford as they chanted “Black Lives Matter!” After demonstrators refused to stop sitting and standing in the road, they were arrested.

While protest-related arrests aren’t necessarily cause for much concern, they are just the tip of the iceberg. As Breitbart News reports

Like many Democrat-run cities across the country, Hartford experienced a spike in murders this past summer following the “uprisings” in Ferguson [Missouri] and Baltimore [Maryland] and attacks of police officers by Black Lives Matter activists. As of August, Hartford had the highest homicide rate of any New England city.

The haters from Hartford are headed for Washington, D.C.

Members and supporters of Nation of Islam, Black Lives Matter, and a staggering array of militant black nationalist and left-wing hate groups are scheduled to converge on the National Mall on Saturday. The official theme for the event, “Justice or else,” which is a bit more concise than the “No justice! No peace!” cry of modern American rioters and looters, seems to foreshadow trouble to come.

U.S. Capitol Police wisely issued an advisory to its 1,800 officers warning that Nation of Islam’s participation in the march would increase the likelihood of violence at the event. The document stated with complete accuracy that the cultish group’s incendiary racist leader, Louis Farrakhan, “has been accused of inciting violence against both Caucasians and police officers….”


The U.S. Capitol Police has since walked back that advisory with Capitol Police Chief Kim Dine going into pc mode, stating that the advisory/newsletter “does not reflect the viewpoint or values of the United States Capitol Police, nor was it intended to provide instruction or guidance to our employees.”

Guilty of political correctness run amuck, double standards and utter stupidity, president of the U.S. Capitol Police Labor Committee, James Konczos accused Police Chief Kim Dine of race baiting, being an alarmist and has called for Dine’s termination.

Washington Post

“You can’t have people putting out inflammatory comments and not hold them accountable” ­Konczos said. “We’re a professional police organization without professional leadership.”

Still, intelligence officers in the Capitol were not alone in their trepidation. Local mosques said they planned heightened security this weekend after anti-Muslim activists announced that they were planning protests at 20 mosques and Islamic centers in Washington and across the nation to coincide with the Nation of Islam rally.

Jon Ritzheimer, an anti-Muslim organizer based in Phoenix, called on supporters to bring their guns.

“We have people that are coming from these mosques killing people, so [we’re telling people to bring] a weapon just to protect yourself,” he said…..

Okay so judging from the biased tone of the Washington Post’s article, whose liberties do you think will be infringed upon at tomorrow’s rally?

Normally when accessing rallies or gatherings involving the Nation of Islam, attendees are searched almost down to the skin (not quite but close enough). However, it is impossible to search and disarm tomorrow’s gathering, which leads me to my next point.

While attacking patriots attending the rally because they’ve chosen to bring their firearms, does anyone believe for one moment that the Nation of Islam, FYF, New Black Panther Party, Black Lives Matter, Justice or Else crews are not armed?

Shutting down and disempowering Capitol police is a premeditated endeavor with those behind it placing their bets on all hell breaking loose Saturday in Washington, D.C. and across America.

Such violence would justify Barack Obama’s collaboration with the United Nations placement of a global police state on U. S. soil.

It is also the mindset of der further, Obama, to take advantage of this Communist manufactured crisis to justify disarming a nation with a swipe of the pen.



One Nation Under Allah? – Attempts to Hide the Truth Will Not Stand

ACLJ by Cece Heil

Islamic indoctrination is happening in public schools all across America.

Over the past few months, we have updated you on some of the Islamic indoctrination happening in Tennessee and Georgia. However, these are not isolated events – it’s a nation-wide epidemic that has been brewing for a while.

For the last several years, parents from across the country have contacted the ACLJ—from California to Maine—concerned about the teaching of Islam in their local schools. It seems that many schools may be going well beyond simply teaching about a religion. From disparate treatment of religions, to distortion of truth, the teaching of Islam seems entrenched with problems.

Students in Tennessee and Georgia were told to recite the Five Pillars of Islam—the Islamic conversion creed—while not learning about Christianity or Judaism. Some schools in Georgia reportedly went as far as to tell students that Allah is the same God worshipped by Christians. And at least one Tennessee middle school—where Islam was covered for over three weeks—students were told to write “Allah is the only God,” while the lesson on Christianity was skipped in its entirety. This far surpasses education on the history of world religions. This is indoctrination….

Department of Defense Schools Aligned to Common Core: God Help Our Military Children

Maggie’s Notebook by Maggie

You think we’re winning against Common Core, right? The Department of Defense (DoD) (our Pentagon) is aligning with Common Core in all DoD K-5th (and up to 12 as the machine grinds) schools in “The Americas, Europe, The Pacifics.” Capiche? Busy indoctrinating American children with parents serving in our military. The U.S. State Department is doing the same thing with children of diplomats, and others, in Muslim countries and all across the globe. Read that story here. The official moniker is Department of Defense Education Activities (DodEA) and they are:

. . . putting in place national guidelines in math — based on Common Core State Standards — for pre-kindergarten through fifth grade.

Remember, these kids get Common Core abroad, and surely most of them return to the U.S….

Our Weasel Of The Week!

golden weasel

Yes, once again, It’s time to present this week’s statuette of shame, The Golden Weasel!!

Every Tuesday, the Council nominates some of the slimiest, most despicable characters in public life for some deed of evil, cowardice or corruption they’ve performed. Then we vote to single out one particular Weasel for special mention, to whom we award the statuette of shame, our special, 100% plastic Golden Weasel. This week’s nominees were particularly slimy and despicable, but the votes are in and we have our winner…the envelope please…


Puma By Design : My nominee for Weasel of the Week goes to Barack Hussein Obama who began politicizing the death of nine people killed at Umpqua Community College in Oregon last week before rigor mortis set in (no disrespected intended, just trying to make a point).

I suspect that Obama‘s speech last week was actually written months ago, locked away in a desk in the Oval Office along with a batch of executive orders on gun control that the White House claims is being prepared for Obama’s signature.

From Breitbart:

“It’s a high priority and will continue to be until we start to see more progress on this issue in this town,’ White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest told reporters today at the press briefing…
‘I can tell you that they’re not stumped, they’re continuing to review the law that’s on the books and continuing to consult with legal authorities but also others who may have ideas about what steps that can be taken to keep guns out of the hands of criminals,’ Earnest said…”

Obama’s been stewing like a petulant child since his 2013-failed attempt to overhaul the gun laws has been anxiously awaiting the perfect crisis to add another chapter to his legacy memoirs even though it means dancing on the graves of those killed by mentally unstable nut jobs nudged over the edge by several years of hateful conflict-ridden Marxist propaganda often espoused by Obama himself and his sock puppets in the mainstream media and streets of America.

Finally, we have Obama’s double standard about when to call for gun control. The image below puts it all in perspective.

 obama's double standard on gun control

Well, after all, those were just some members of our military, right? And no need to make a big deal out of it, especially since Muslims were concerned. I also love the way CNN tried to create the Great White Perpetrator out of the killer..especially when he could, you know, be Obama’s son if he had one,based on our president’s  racial and religious  background:

CNN Turns Mixed Race Oregon Shooter into a White Man

Shakespeare had it right centuries ago. The fault is not in our stars but in ourselves in that we are underlings. And allow ourselves to be ruled in this fashion.

Well, there it is.

Check back next Tuesday to see who next week’s nominees for Weasel of the Week are!

Make sure to tune in every Monday for the Watcher’s Forum, and remember, every Wednesday, the Council has its weekly contest with the members nominating two posts each, one written by themselves and one written by someone from outside the group for consideration by the whole Council.

Kevin McCarthy Backs Out of Speaker’s Race; Bret Baier Blames Ted Cruz

Breaking: Kevin McCarthy announced moments ago his decision to drop out of the race for Speaker of the House. Exact words: “I just think it’s best we have a new face.”

Washington Times

House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy called off his bid to be the next House speaker Thursday, and the GOP canceled its internal party as it hit the panic button, stumbling toward an end-of-month deadline without a leader in sight.

Mr. McCarthy had been the clear front-runner and likely had support of a majority of House Republicans, but could not win over enough members to claim the 218 votes he’d need to win the position in an Oct. 29 vote on the full House floor…..

Let’s be honest, the only people shocked was the mainstream media and the establishment of both parties.

Immediately after the announcement, Fox News (and they’re not alone) jumped on the blame game wagon. Bret Baier wasted no time pointing the finger at Senator Ted Cruz.



H/t Jim Hoft, Gateway Pundit for catching Fox News blame game.

McCarthy sent the following tweet a few moments ago.


And then there’s a tweet from Hillary Clinton’s camp.

While not a McCarthy fan, I could not let the sarcasm go so I responded as follows attaching image below (assuming my tweet is sitting in Twitter’s cue somewhere).

“@HillaryClinton @KevinMcCarthy made his bed and so did you.”

Bill de Blasio to Air-Conditioned Businesses: Shut Door or Pay Fine…Really.


, , , ,

BEFUNKY billdeblasiosnewyorkco-minglingnotaproblem
For starters, the majority of New York City businesses ceased keeping their doors wide open on a hot day while at the same time running their air conditioners YEARS AGO. While some do it to save energy, all do it to cut down on costly utility bills.

At the same time, there are those businesses that have hundreds + customers coming through their doors on a hot summer day and have made the conscious choice to keep their doors open.

Whatever the reason, the choice to keep one’s door(s) open (or not) while running the air conditioner belongs to the store owner not an over-regulating Communist petard looking for yet another pretext to swindle New Yorkers for every little thing no matter how menial from the unimaginable to the just plain ridiculous and from the second they step out of their doors until the second they return.

This latest fleecing (of the day) hails from the Communists at the New York City Council who have already gone after larger New York City businesses, many of whom again do not keep their doors open while running the air conditioner (why are we even having this discussion?).

As with all things Communist, the eco-fascists on the NYC Council have labeled keeping a door or window open with air conditioners running, “the co-mingling of indoor and outdoor air” and, therefore, illegal.

The law which will be enforced by the NYC’s Department of Consumer Affairs goes into effect next summer with fines ranging from $250 to $1,000 is an attack on small business owners.

New York Times by Michael M. Grynbaum

Starting next summer, nearly all shops and restaurants in New York City will be required to keep front doors and windows shut while their air-conditioners and cooling systems are running.

The requirement, which became law on Wednesday, is intended to address a ubiquitous, if environmentally unsound, summer sensation: the beckoning blast of chilled air that lures sweaty passers-by into the cooler confines of an enterprising merchant’s store.

“It’s always been a pet peeve of mine,” Mayor Bill de Blasio said at a City Hall ceremony on Wednesday before signing the bill into law.

“It’s the middle of the summer in New York City, it’s 90 degrees, you walk by a store, and the door is wide open and the air-conditioning is blasting,” the mayor said. “That’s wasting a lot of energy. That’s having its own impact on global warming.”

Shop owners who violate the rules would face fines, ranging from $250 for a first offense to as much as $1,000 for an egregious violation. The measure is an expansion of an earlier law passed by the City Council…

Counter-type stores and businesses with outside cafes are exempt (so far); and on that note, I ask, what are the odds of Commie Bill regulating New Yorkers from their homes, dispatching drones and/or police helicopters for the purpose of issuing fines to those of us who have air conditioners and might keep a window or door open?

Don’t laugh its right up this bastard’s ally, i.e., one out of a thousand de Blasio’s many scams pet peeves.

P.S.: The owners of the Empire State Building had better watch out. NOT! The Empire State Realty Trust is owned by Democrat fundraisers, Democrat contributors, and a Democrat Senator from Connecticut.”


Progressive Candidates Ditch Education Forum, Fear Backlash from Unions

Hillary Clinton speech to NEA edited


Washington Examiner by Brent Scher

The Democratic candidates for president have decided to ditch plans to participate in an education forum planned for later this month in Iowa, and the forum’s organizer says it is because the candidates fear backlash from teachers unions.

The forum was set to be hosted by the Seventy Four, a news organization launched earlier this year by Campbell Brown, an education reform advocate, to direct more attention towards critical education issues. It was going to be co-hosted by the Des Moines Register and the American Federation for Children….

Read full article

With it being election season, Progressive candidates once again electing to stand with the teachers’ unions have refused to publicly go on record unless, it’s of course, to voice their support of teachers’ unions as Hillary Clinton did earlier this week when she accepted the endorsement of the pro-Common Core National Education Association.

Brown wrote an op-ed in the Washington Post earlier this year in support of Common Core while at the same time accusing Republican Party 2016 presidential primary candidates of pandering.

It is worth noting that in July, Brown, husband, Dan Senor, an adviser under George W. Bush administration, attended a fundraiser for brother, Jeb.

So what is the problem? Because it is darn sure not about the children.



In Which Charles “C.W.” Cooke Enlists in the War On Men

Erick Erickson Ben Domenech C_Fotharles C W Cooke or_Collage 002

Grumpy Opinions by bobmontgomery

Remember the “Young Guns”? Yes, indeed – Eric Cantor and that group who were going to ride in and save the day for “limited government”? That worked out well, didn’t it? Well, there’s another posse riding around stirring up dust and giving us the what for on prescriptions for our well-being and future happiness. It consists of people like Erick Erickson, Ben Domenech, some really hip talking faces over at Fox News, and of course the nimble dudes at National Review. They are male and female, but their common thread is they are thirty-to-forty-somethings who just can’t wait to bring conservatism into the 21st Century. We told on the up-and coming Ben Domenech (he’s been on Gutfeld, as has Charlie Cooke, and Fox News Sunday lately) here. To these types, extremism in the defense of liberty is a vice.

Cooke’s latest output is a nod to Hillary Clinton and all the progressives who are doing the stealth gun confiscation thing by setting up straw men (in this case domineering spouses or dating partners) as reasons why we probably need to vastly expand the BATF and further politicize the Department of Justice.

“Buried amid the hyperbole and nonsense that stains Hillary Clinton’s newest gun-control plan are a couple of rather good ideas. The first: To expand the definition of “domestic abuse” so that guilty men do not fall through the cracks. “While federal law generally prohibits domestic abusers from purchasing or possessing guns,” Clinton notes correctly, “this protection does not apply to people in dating relationships or convicted stalkers.”

“Expand the definition of domestic abuse.” Why yes, Charlie, Hilly’s right as rain, isn’t she? Let’s see, we could expand the definition of domestic abuse to include when a man tells his wife her chicken casserole was a bit too undercooked, or if he gives her a dirty look when she overdraws the checking account. Let’s just progressively expand our horizon of definitions….

Strong Cities Network Should Raise Alarms for Liberty Advocates


, , , , , , ,

TYRANNY ALERT - screenshot strongs cities network web page 002Oath Keepers by David Codrea

Attorney General Loretta Lynch and the Department of Justice are joining with an international law enforcement coalition for the claimed purpose of “strengthen[ing] community resilience against violent extremism,” a Sept. 28 release from the DOJ’s Office of Public Affairs announced.

“The Strong Cities Network will serve as a vital tool to strengthen capacity-building and improve collaboration,” Lynch proclaimed for the United Nations SCN launch. “As we continue to counter a range of domestic and global terror threats, this innovative platform will enable cities to learn from one another, to develop best practices and to build social cohesion and community resilience here at home and around the world.”

Curious, that she deliberately chose the word “collaboration.” And as for “best practices,” we have them already, in the Constitution, with its Bill of Rights that she swore an oath to uphold. And that’s just the start of the flags this globalist venture ought to be raising.

To paraphrase another miserable oath-breaker, Bill Clinton, it depends on what the meaning of the word “extremism” is. As Oath Keepers and other Constitutionalist/traditional values groups have seen time and again, the Feds are more than happy to embrace the Southern Poverty Law Center’s politically-motivated insinuations. Speaking out in defense of traditional marriage or opposing “progressive” usurpation of powers results in being conflated with truly violent and racist groups, being smeared with the label of “hater,” and being held up as examples for law enforcement fusion centers to be on the lookout for…..
