    President Barack Obama unleashed a blistering and belittling rebuke of Republican White House hopefuls Monday, calling their attack on his landmark nuclear deal with Iran “ridiculous if it weren’t so sad.” Standing before television cameras during a trip to Africa, Obama suggested the bellicose rhetoric from some GOP candidates was an attempt to divert attention from Donald Trump, the wealthy businessman-turned presidential contender whose popularity is confounding the Republican field. […] “In 18 months, I’m turning over the keys,” Obama said. “I want to make sure I’m turning over the keys to somebody who is serious about the serious problems...

    Several state lawmakers plan to introduce legislation that will make it legal for Minnesota National Guard members to carry weapons at recruiting centers, or whenever in uniform. State Sen. Paul Gazelka, R-Nisswa, says the killing of five military personnel in Tennessee is not to be taken lightly and said, "It is time we make sure our Minnesota National Guard members can have the ability to protect themselves when in uniform." Gazelka said "our guard members are targets wherever they go in uniform because they represent the United States and there are those who would do harm to them for that...

    Jewish Democrats are very upset with Republican presidential candidate Mike Huckabee after he compared the nuclear deal with Iran to “marching [Israel] to the door of the oven.” Following Huckabee’s comments, Representative for Florida and head of the Democratic National Committee Deborah Wasserman-Schultz called on him to apologize for what she called “cavalier analogies” to Nazi death camps. “This rhetoric, while commonplace in today’s Republican presidential primary, has no place in American politics,” she said. The National Jewish Democratic Council said in a statement, “Republicans have fallen over themselves to speak out against Donald Trump’s outrageous rhetoric on immigration and...

Former Arkansas governor and 2016 GOP presidential candidate Mike Huckabee recently stated that: “The Iran nuclear deal is marching the Israelis to the door of the oven.” Huckabee added: “What’s ‘ridiculous and sad’ is that President Obama does not take Iran’s repeated threats seriously. For decades, Iranian leaders have pledged to ‘destroy,’ ‘annihilate,’ and ‘wipe Israel off the map’ with a ‘big Holocaust.’ ‘Never again’ will be the policy of my administration and I will stand with our ally Israel to prevent the terrorists in Tehran from achieving...

Greenblatt, the national director of the organization, issued a statement, calling the Republican 2016 hopeful's comments invoking the Holocaust "completely out of line and unacceptable." "Israeli military and security officials have repeatedly said the Obama Administration has been as strong as any other American administration in keeping Israel secure," Greenblat writes.

    The Russian government has approved a draft bill that would allow it to seize foreign state assets, without warning. The move is seen as a tit-for-tat gesture, following Western court cases involving Russian firms. According to the new draft bill, Russia will be able to seize foreign state assets from countries which infringe on Russia’s jurisdictional immunity, according to the Russian press. The Ministry of Justice said the new law is meant to bring parity to the existing "jurisdictional imbalance" between Russia and other countries. In other words, Russia will now seize the state assets of other countries in proportion...

Andrew McCarthy notes that in the time of the Founding Fathers, it was regarded as an impeachable offense for a president to withhold information from Congress regarding a treaty, or to use unscrupulous tactics to acquire Senate approval. Compare that to what Obama has done:

Speaking in New York on Friday before members of the Council on Foreign Relations think tank, Kerry declared there are "no alternatives" to the nuclear agreement the United States and five other world powers struck with Iran. A clear focus in Kerry's message on Friday was his past and continuing support for Israel, even recalling his 100% voting record for Israel during his time as senator. With the deal, Kerry...

    This is breathtaking in its own fanaticism—and in the ignorance that, one might have hoped, would have been tucked away after Romney’s 2012 presidential defeat at the hands of a lackluster incumbent. A survey of recent Iranian history suggests that its leaders, while starkly fundamentalist in their religious sensibility, conduct foreign policy based on a logical understanding of their national interests and an often brilliant pursuit of them within the context of geopolitical reality. They certainly never sent an army halfway around the world to overthrow the leader of a sovereign state with the intent of establishing a beachhead for...

The Kurds are one of the largest national groups globally without a state of their own, and they are yearning for one independent Kurdish state. Justice for the Kurds, it seems, is subjected to the whims...

But the moment Turkey started bombing, it targeted Kurdish positions in Iraq, in addition to targeting ISIS positions in Syria. In Turkey, millions of indigenous Kurds are continually terrorized and murdered, but ISIS terrorists can freely travel and use official border crossings to go to Syria and return to Turkey; they are even treated at Turkish hospitals.

    President Obama is counting on House Democrats to be his last line of defense against congressional opponents of the nuclear deal with Iran. Many key players remain undecided, however, and some lawmakers are speculating that as much as half the House Democratic Caucus might be willing to buck the White House. “If [Republicans] bring before us a resolution that says ‘We hereby approve the deal,’ I think that as many as half the Democrats would vote against it,” Rep. Brad Sherman (D-Calif.), a critic of the Iran deal, said this week. Facing unified Republican opposition to the deal, the White...

    One year after the Obama administration celebrated the removal of chemical weapons from Syria, U.S. intelligence agencies have determined that Bashar al-Assad’s regime did not relinquish all of its chemical weapons. The Wall Street Journal reported: An examination of last year’s international effort to rid Syria of chemical weapons, based on interviews with many of the inspectors and U.S. and European officials who were involved, shows the extent to which the Syrian regime controlled where inspectors went, what they saw and, in turn, what they accomplished. That happened in large part because of the ground rules under which the inspectors...
