    President Obama didn’t require Iranian leaders to sign the nuclear deal that his team negotiated with the regime, and the deal is not “legally binding,” his administration acknowledged in a letter to Representative Mike Pompeo (R., Kan.) obtained by National Review. “The Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) is not a treaty or an executive agreement, and is not a signed document,” wrote Julia Frifield, the State Department assistant secretary for legislative affairs, in the November 19 letter.

    Congressional Democrats are trying to build support for an effort to bar gun purchases by terror suspects, hoping to take advantage of the same public anxieties about security that gave Republicans a ringing House victory. The Democratic push seems likely to fall victim to opposition from the National Rifle Association and congressional gun-rights backers, chiefly Republicans, who have smothered firearms curbs for years. If the Republicans who control Congress block votes on the proposal, Democrats hope to profit politically by winning sympathy from angry voters. ...

    Syrian rebel sources claimed Saturday night that they had killed Iranian al Qods chief, the commander of Iranian forces in Iraq and Syria, Gen. Qassem Soleiman, in the fighting east of Aleppo. This claim is not confirmed by any other sources. The rebels say they located the Iranian general’s movements by means of intelligence and struck his car with a TOW missile, killing him and three other Iranian commanders with him, Masoud Askari, Mahmud Dahakan and Ahmed Rajai. If this is confirmed it would count as a signal Syrian rebel feat.

    Moscow, Russia – Suspicions grew over the official government story coming out of the Kremlin as Russian President Vladimir Putin and the FSB attempted to quell growing public anger and distrust in the wake of past false flag attacks. The FSB, a sinister security arm of the Russian regime, has a long history of carrying out shadowy attacks against its’ own citizenry in order to further their own military and geopolitical goals. One such series of attacks was the famed apartment bombings in Buynaksk, Moscow, & Volgodonsk of September 1999, which killed 307 Russian citizens, injured 1700 more, and was...

    Intelligence agencies say Islamic State may be telling the truth by claiming responsibility for the attack. U.S. and European intelligence agencies now believe that the Russian airliner downed in Egypt’s Sinai Peninsula on the weekend was probably taken out by a bomb planted onboard by an Islamic State-affiliated terrorist group, according to media reports. The Russian airplane may have been attacked by Islamic State (a.k.a. ISIS, ISIL, and Daesh) because Russia is waging war against it.

    Iran considered pursuing a nuclear deterrent when it began its nuclear program in the 1980s, during an eight-year war with Iraq, a former president has been quoted as saying. Ayatollah Akbar Hashemi Rafsanjanis comments comes at a sensitive moment, as Iran implements an agreement reached with world powers in July aimed at curbing its nuclear program, to allay Western fears it was trying to build an atomic bomb. The International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA), the United Nations nuclear watchdog, is investigating whether Irans nuclear program ever had a military application. It is due to issue a report by Dec. 15....

    President Obama chided Iran for focusing on violent rhetoric rather than doing work to advance its economic interests during his speech Monday before the United Nations General Assembly, saying that chanting death to America does not create jobs or make Iran more secure. That path is now available to a nation like Iran, which, as of this moment, continues to deploy violent proxies to advance its interests, Obama said. These efforts may appear to give Iran leverage in disputes with neighbors, but they fuel sectarian conflict that endangers the entire region and isolates Iran from the promise of trade and...

    On Wednesday, the Internet rallied support for a bright 14-year-old boy, Ahmed Mohamed, who was arrested for bringing a homemade clock to school. Ahmed was proud of his invention, but school officials and police in Irvine, Texas, did not feel the same way. Ahmed found support from big leaguers like President Obama, who tweeted his well wishes, and the original clockmaster himself, Flavor Flav, who told the world to STOP clock blocking. Everyone loves Ahmed except for Bristol Palin and you guessed it Bill Maher. On Friday evenings episode of Real Time With Bill Maher, the host assured...

    Environmental samples have been taken at a sensitive military site in Iran, the head of the UN nuclear watchdog said on Monday, citing "significant progress" in its investigation of Tehran's past activities. Such sampling is usually done by experts of the UN's International Atomic Energy Agency. But IAEA chief Yukiya Amano says that Iranians carried out that part of the probe at Parchin. The transfer appeared to be part of a confidential draft agreement with the agency that allows Iran to gather its own samples. Inspecting the Parchin military site is a crucial part of the International Atomic Energy Agency's...

    Bristol Palin knocks it out of the park in her faith-base, pro-American blog: I know not all law enforcement is ethically correct (we have crooks everywhere), but I cannot even imagine how much more protocols they will have to follow during an investigation of anyone who isnt white. Not everything is race based and most police, and law enforcement in general, are just trying to do their jobs. Let them do their jobs, and stop looking for reasons to cause riots.

    STEVE KROFT: I'm sure you realized the difficulty for many Americans to get past the fact that President Obama has signed an agreement with a country that says: "Death to America, death to Israel." What are they to make of it? Is this for internal Iranian political consumption? What are Americans to make of the language? PRESIDENT ROUHANI: The Iranian people are not looking for war with any country. "There has been much ferocious, negative comments about the deal in Iran as there have been in the United States," Kroft told "CBS This Morning" Friday about the long-awaited nuclear agreement....

    Count Sarah Palin among the sane who clearly doesnt think a clock or school supplies should look like an explosive device. The former Alaska governor has weighed in on the story of a teen in Texas who suddenly has a White House invitation. Palin posted on Facebook: I Guess Muhammads Pencil Box is Cooler Than the Palin Kids. The post includes a link to Bristol Palins take on the story and then some strong words from Sarah Palin herself regarding the matter. Governor Palin wrote: It doesnt look like a pencil box to me. Palin provided a link to her...

    When Iranian crowds chant Death to America during rallies in Tehran, Americans shouldnt take it personally, according to Iran's president Hassan Rouhani. Speaking in an interview with 60 Minutes due to be broadcast on Sunday, Rouhani explained that the famous Friday ritual is a reaction to previous Washington policy decisions that hurt Iran. [] This slogan that is chanted is not a slogan against the American people. Our people respect the American people, he insisted, according to AFP. The Iranian people are not looking for war with any country, continued Rouhani. [] Rouhani, despite his comments, has personally presided over...

    Some intelligence agencies warn the five men may travel to Syria and make use of its chaotic landscape to plot attacks elsewhere. Iran has released five senior al Qaeda operatives from detention and will soon allow them to leave the country, prompting fears they will join other terrorists in Syria planning attacks on the West. According to intelligence sources, three of the five are members of al Qaeda's ruling committee the Shura Council. Among those released in exchange for the Iranian diplomat was Abu al Kheir al Masri - the former head of al Qaeda's "external relations" committee, who was...

    Top congressional Democrats have done a great job laying out the terms of the Iran nuclear deal, a Free Beacon SuperCut finds. These members of Congress explained how Iran will ramp up its campaign of terrorism and Middle East destabilization with funds gained through the nuclear deal. They expressed concerngrave concern, evenover key concessions such as the curtailment of inspections on Irans military sites, the removal of a ban on arms sales to Iran, and the 15-year sunset clause on restrictions to Irans ability to enrich nuclear material. Still, as other Democrats have unceasingly reminded us, the Iran deal was...

    The same voice that told you to vote for Barack Obama also told you to oppose his signature foreign policy achievement, the Iran nuclear deal. That would be Leif Anders, a voice actor based in Austin, Texas. Anders was hired to do voice overs for some of Obamas election ads and, more recently, was the voice in this summers ubiquitous anti-Iran deal spots paid for by the AIPAC-backed Citizens for a Nuclear Free Iran. On Thursday, the Senate rejected a a third attempt to dismantle the nuclear deal which should leave the deal to take effect as Sept. 17...

    Democrats in the US Senate this week blocked a vote on the Iran deal for the third time. The most remarkable aspect of this US surrender to Iran is that the Iranian regime is not some hypothetical threat. It has been perpetrating acts of war against Western interests for more than three decades including playing a key role in the 9/11 attacks on America. Thats not just my opinion. Its the view of the United States District Court for the Southern District of New York. In a judgment that has received virtually no attention, federal Judge George B. Daniels...
