Obama removes Iran and Hezbollah from terror list; crickets from Congress

As I write this, I have no idea what Israel’s election results will be — but I do know my desired result. There is much evidence that the Obama administration had worked to secure a defeat for Prime Minister Netanyahu — of course the progressive socialists will deny and dismiss it as they always do.

However, there is another critical indicator that President Obama and Secretary of State John Kerry wish to have an accommodating left-leaning person in Israel to enable their policy scheme.

Front Page Magazine reports, “You know the country responsible for killing hundreds of Marines, which provided sanctuary to al-Qaida and whose terrorist proxies helped give al-Qaida the skills to carry out 9/11? They’re no longer terrorists. Sure their terrorist groups currently control parts of Lebanon and Yemen, but they’re not terrorists. Because if Iran was a state sponsor of terror, then Obama letting them have the bomb might look bad. This way it’s fine.”

That is correct ladies and gents, the Obama administration has removed the number one state sponsor of terrorism from the list of terrorists — just like they refuse to place the venerable Muslim Brotherhood on that list, or for that matter, the Council for American Islamic Relations (CAIR) — funny, even the UAE and Egypt did.

This reminds me of the story from Star Trek that gave Captain William T. Kirk his fame — he was the only Star Fleet cadet who defeated the Kobiyashi Maru scenario. Well, we came to find out he simply went into the system and changed it so he could defeat the game.

And so it goes with the Obama administration — folks claim you shouldn’t enter into a nuclear negotiation and deal with the number one global sponsor of terrorism? Then take them off the terrorist list, and voila! Any other complaints?

However, it’s just not that easy as we draw close to the ill-conceived desire of Obama to appease the mad mullahs and theocrats of the Islamic regime. There has been no change in behavior from Iran – as a matter of fact, it has worsened. Iran still holds Americans hostage and a new report shows — something we’ve known for some time — Iran has a presence in Venezuela. So President Obama can decree Iran isn’t a terrorist state but the stripes of the tiger do not define the ferocious nature of the big cat.

And it’s not just redefining Iran to suit his desires. Obama has also redefined Iran’s greatest terrorist proxy force, Hezbollah. “That clarifies that Obama no longer considers Hezbollah an enemy (not that he ever did). Instead it’s an ally that is classed together with Lebanon, rather than a threat to it.”

All this is contained in a recent report from James Clapper, the Director of National Intelligence — that title does seem somewhat oxymoronic.

The report states, “An annual report delivered recently to the US Senate…removed Iran and Hezbollah from its list of terrorism threats, after years in which they featured in similar reports. In describing Iran’s regional role, the report noted the Islamic Republic’s “intentions to dampen sectarianism, build responsive partners, and deescalate tensions with Saudi Arabia,” but cautioned that “Iranian leaders—particularly within the security services—are pursuing policies with negative secondary consequences for regional stability and potentially for Iran.”

“Lebanon faces growing threats from terrorist groups, including the al-Nusrah Front and ISIL. Sunni extremists are trying to establish networks in Lebanon and have increased attacks against Lebanese army and Hezballah positions along the Lebanese-Syrian border. Lebanon potentially faces a protracted conflict in northern and eastern parts of the country from extremist groups seeking to seize Lebanese territory, supplies, and hostages.”

So not only have Iran and Hezbollah been removed from the list — they seem to be praised and made out to be victims. Folks, you just cannot make this stuff up — and I must once again ask, just who is “traitorous?”

Let’s take a walk down memory lane recalling that famous quote about those who fail to remember history ending up repeating it.

“The worst part for me is that nobody remembers,” Mark Nevells said last year on the anniversary of the Hezbollah bombing of the Marine barracks in Beirut. A Marine had thrown his body in front of the truck to try stop the vehicle and afterward for five days, Nevells and other Marines had dug through the rubble for the bodies of the men they had served with. One of the first Marines on the scene heard voices coming from underneath the rubble. “Get us out. Don’t leave us.”

Or do any of us remember this: “Colonel William R. Higgins was captured by Hezbollah, the terrorist group acting as Iran’s hand in Lebanon, and tortured for months until his body was dumped near a mosque. An autopsy report found that he had been starved and had suffered multiple lethal injuries that could have caused his death. The skin on his face had been partially removed along with his tongue and he had also been castrated.”

Or this: “Like Higgins, William Francis Buckley, the CIA station chief, was also captured and tortured for months. On video tapes released by his Hezbollah captors, he was incoherent and his mind had been broken by the horrors inflicted on his ravaged body and his soul. “They had done more than ruin his body,” CIA Director William Casey said. “His eyes made it clear his mind had been played with. It was horrific, medieval and barbarous.”

Lastly how about this: “Robert Stethem, a Navy diver, was brutally murdered when Hezbollah terrorists took over TWA flight 847. The Iranian-backed terrorists, one of whom was Imad Mughniyah, beat and kicked him to death. “They were jumping in the air and landing full force on his body. He must have had all his ribs broken,” Uli Derickson, the stewardess, described. “I was sitting only 15 feet away. I couldn’t listen to it. I put my fingers in my ears. I will never forget. I could still hear. They put the mike up to his face so his screams could be heard by the outside world.”

And don’t forget Lebanese Hezbollah terrorist Ali Musa Daqduq, who was responsible for the kidnapping and ritual murder of five U.S. Soldiers in Iraq — of course Obama would just blame Bush. However, it was Obama who released this terrorist to the Iraqis who subsequently set him free.

Iran is still an Islamic totalitarian, terrorist state, and Hezbollah is its proxy Islamic terrorist army. The Obama administration can do as Captain Kirk and change the rules but it does not change the truth or the behavior.

What it shows is that Barack Obama will dishonor the memory of anyone in order to get what he wants — regardless of what it entails for the cause of liberty and freedom. I’m waiting for the typical progressive socialist trolls to defend this action of removing Iran and Hezbollah from the list of terrorist threats facing our Republic.

Please, give us an explanation of this policy, help us to understand what we are missing here — truthfully, you cannot, and if you try to, then join our list, the list of those who wish to fundamentally transform America and embolden our enemies.

This is shameful — and once again, I call upon the GOP-controlled House and Senate to draft and pass a resolution of censure against President Barack Hussein Obama. That’s not me being political. That’s me being an American.

    • Wow, all you have to do is call the Harvard Law School grad an imbecile and you get 17 likes. I have concluded that this is the imbeciles forum and I am done casting pearls at swine. Good luck with Hillary. Oh, almost forgot, you still have about 20 more months to criticize the Muslim….lol…absolutely unbelievable

      • Exactly what has Obama done for you personally? This blind faith that he is doing an amazing job, while the world is in turmoil, is laughable. We are making deals with a government that shouts Death to America in the streets, where just a few weeks ago Iran was doing military maneuvers in the Strait of Hormuz and practicing bombing an American warship. It is not a legally binding treaty, so Iran can just keep pursuing a nuclear weapon and we have no recourse. They are providing military help in Iraq not because they are against ISIS, but simply because they see an opportunity to become a huge player in the outcome of the future of Iraq, let us not forget that Iraq is a majority Shi’ite country, just like Iran. The only thing that matters to the Ayatollahs of Iran is the spread of an Islamic republic across the Middle East. That was the main focal point of Khomeni’s entire rise to power and remains the stated goal of this nation.
        The Obama administration is not looking for real solutions, especially in these last two years, he is simply looking toward his legacy as president. Obama has never truly wanted to be president, having to deal with the real nitty-gritty of the office, rather he likes the stature that comes with the office. His legacy will be one of a diminished United States and a less stable world, because like it or not a strong United States equals a more stable world. We can already see the effects of our weakness in Ukraine, North Korea, Russia, ISIS ,need I go on. I believe that when we write the history of the Obama administration, it will go down as one of if not the worst in U.S. history.

      • Megan, there is so much that we disagree on, I’ll just hit a couple of points. Obama will go down as one of the best presidents not for killing binLadden or for pulling us from the precipice of a crisis that could have led us into another Great Depression, but for Obamacare, insuring 50,000,000 people. We all agree Iran is bad. Reagan still did his Iran Contra thing with them. If reached, the agreement would be binding. we can negotiate or go to war. I know Bibi wants to nuke them now, but we are trying diplomacy first.

    • Let’s not talk any more about the letter sent by the 47 Republican senators…turn the page, they blew it, period.

  1. What did we expect from a supporter of fanatical Muslims — or anyone else against America? For some reason, Obama and others of his ilk believes it is bad for the USA to be strong. Who would he/they rather be a super power? Russia? N. Korea? China?

    • China will be in the future, it’s unavoidable. Napoleon warned us about them 200 years too soon. Your comment qualifies in the “top 10 dumbest, most ridiculous comments ever made”…good job!

  2. Colonel…I hear you loud and clear sir….Beirut is more than a distant memory for me. Like most of us patriots, we know what the right thing to do is…patience is a virtue sir…but the waiting game still sucks….Semper Fi!

    • Wow, I posted something here on Kane and it was deleted. No foul language or anything. Maybe we can’t criticize him. Go to Wikipedia and read up on Kane.

  3. Removal form the list was probably a “pre-requisite” that Iran demanded as part of the nuclear talks. We know Obama’s modus operandis: is always complete surrender.

      • 25% of America is not Christian or Jewish and growing yearly. And what is this white…lol…Hitler…I think we all appreciate the military but there are other noble professions like doctor, nurse, firefighter, paramedic, cop, etc.

      • Don’t worry, I would never call you a racist, of course not. But maybe you would take this as a compliment.

      • Some would say the same of Christianity. Go to evilbible.com. Your precious Bible ain’t much better than the Quran. Some would even call it bellicose.I do invite you to join my group “Christians against dinosaurs”. We try to dispel the Satanic myth that dinosaurs existed millions of years ago and that the earth is about 5 billion years old. Clearly rubbish. The Bible says the Earth is 10-50,000 years old, no more. We want these “scientists” brought to justice and we want to implement the Inquisition once again, Lord willing, praise Jesus. Business is my thing. Our jobless rate is at a multi year low and Obama helped to pull us out of the 2008 global financial crisis that could have lead to a global depression like that of the 1930s. This crisis is already in the history books and is called “The Great Recession”. But it had the potential of becoming a Great Depression.

    • It was one of their demands. They did not ask that Israel be so appropriately placed on the list because of their treatment of the Palestinians, which was nice of them. What’s going on over there is called “diplomacy”, give and take, that’s how negociating works. That’s what’s so great about war, if you win, you just take, no need to waste time negotiating. Bibi is a great proponent of this and war appears imminent.

  4. Sir, what at this point can we do since our representatives aren’t representing us, nor are they following the will of the people OR the Constitution themselves? This is all extremely distressing and very dangerous for the United States, Israel and the entire world…. (By the way Sir, it’s “James T. Kirk”. Hooah, Keep in the fight.

    • Even though your representatives aren’t representing you….you keep voting for the clowns..they tell you they will do this and they will do that and it NEVER HAPPENS and you LOONS keep voting for the clowns…..don’t complain!

      • I vote Republican NOT because I’m a Republican. But because I’m conservative and Republicans are the lesser of two evils. The Democrats lie every day and have NOTHING to show for their time in office. At least Republicans try at times to do what’s right. The Democrats don’t!

      • 100% correct. Democrats want to destroy this country and Republicans want to build it.

    • You’ve been watching too much FOX. It’s not your failt, but you do lose 1 IQ point monthly, so viewer discretion is advised. 50% of the country is fine with how things are going. They are just going badly for Reps but I’m sure that when Hillary takes over, everything is gonna be ok. No need to worry.

    • Im sure Obama has a lot to do with it too… it is obvious what he has been doing from day one… systematically setting us up to fall.. to become an Islamic state just like the Middle East.. He has never had any intention to fight the war on terrorism and has always had their back.

      • That’s why he is still waiting to get the congressional ok to send in troops? I could have sworn that Kane was opposed to giving Obama the power to do this.Rena, I like to kill some time in these forums when I can and I have to rank your comment probably in the top 5 in “the stupidest thing ever said” category Congratulations!

  5. its going to lead to war on our own ground, May God be with us all and grant us strength to whip some anti american ass!

    • War will come, now sooner than later, but let’s rely on ourselves and not some invisible “deity” that doesn’t exist;

      • hes only invisible to non believers, and even then he takes care of you. I will rely on myself and my family,I will fight with all my might, but My God will be my sword.

      • Donna, sweetheart, a sword is no match for rifles and the like. I was a Christian for 22 years. Even went to a Christian school from K-12. I know more abut the bible than most. Yep, I know that there are not 10 but over 800 commandments. It’s just a bunch of bs, but if it works for you, go with it. If you have a moment, please consider checking out http://www.evilbible.com.

  6. I agree with Col West (as do many of us) that Congress should pass a Resolution of Censure against obama. Enough is enough.

    • I think it would be great if the Republicans attempted that. But I doubt
      even they are dumb enough to try it. Public disapproval would be loud & it would cost them.

      • yeah, and a president has to do an awful lot of things wrong for that request…and Hussein has not

      • I give him kudos for the great job he’s doing! Impeachment? It’s almost impossible to get impeached. Nixon was pardoned by Ford. But you were probably thinking of Mr “Mission Accomplished” 2 months into a war that would last 9 years. And you see, we Dems weren’t pushing for his impeachment just because he was a little slow. be nice.

    • Ask West what he’s doing about it, except getting rich off of us suckers reading his bs an opining. West, what are you doing about your suggestion? Talk is cheap.

    • Also, ask him why he produced this false article as Iran and Hizbollah are still on the list of terrorist states,

      • “It’s gonna be ok,”…If you don’t mind being ruled by unprincipled scumbags that don’t abide by the rule of law and the Constitution. Since it is rumored that Valerie Jarrett leaked the Hillary email thing, don’t you suppose BHO is looking for more than two more? Maybe Moochelle will run to take out Hillary. I’m sure you would be okay with all of that. Also, I assume you are Muslim, because 8 more years of Obama will have the Muslim Brotherhood in control. It’s all about power for these people like BHO and Jarrett and Hillary and you Obama Koolaid drinkers are oblivious to that fact.

      • I know about politics. Check out Machiavelli’s “The Prince” circa 1300 AD. Politics is corrupt, we’ve known it for a long time. I’m Agnostic, don’t like religion.

  7. A rose by any other name is still as sweet. Obama can declare whatever he wants, he can play his euphemistic games but terrorists are still terrorists. I am beyond fed up with this joker and the lame Congress that refuses to rein him in.

    • Congress too busy committing treason by interfering with multinational discussions. It was a violation of some act passed in 1799. I could look up the name, but Obama has too much class to prosecute all 47 senators and we would be left with only the smart part of the senate, but only half nonetheless.

      • Go ahead Hrh . . . look it up and let us know how this imaginary Act of 1799 reads so that these 47 Senators can be prosecuted. While your at it, look up the Federal Law about Federal employees (i.e. Secretary of State) “willfully concealing” government documents. Let us know how it all turns out!

      • The name of the act is the Logan Act. I guess we have all become lawyers all of a sudden. I don’t have such an ego as to not admit that I was wrong about something when new evidence is presented to me. And while it may not have been a violation of the Logan act, Cotton received a $960,000 “political contribution” from an ultra right wing Israeli group and I wonder if that had anything to do with the letter? Problem with the ltr saying that the agreement may become null and void with the next admin is that now no nation will feel assured that we will stick to our word regarding treaties and agreements as congress might interfere or the next admin may nullify it. It was pure partisanship and hurt our credibility. As for our next president, Hillary, she and Bill both went to the #1 law school in the nation, Yale, and I think that it would be difficult to prove that she “willfully concealed” anything. W lost like 5 million emails, Powell also had a personal email account and I think more tight standards were put in place regarding records after Hillary was no longer Scty of State. I can sense at every Rep forum just how scared you guys are of her. Well, you should be. But look at it on the bright side, you will have someone else to complain about for the next 8 years and you won’t be stuck with a horrendous Republican pres like Reagan, or, God forbid, Cotton.

      • I won’t get into the Logan Act since you’ve already admitted that you were wrong about the Cotton/Congress violation. Believe it or not, I agree with you on the political contributions. Unfortunately big money elects our politicians. I don’t like it one bit and would like for it to be done away with, personally. However, for now, as long as the rules apply the same to everyone it is an evil we live with. The Senators were correct in stating that the next administration may rule Obama’s EO null and void. IF Obama did not try to get around Congress and the deal was ratified/approved by Congress, then it would not be easily dismissed. It is Obama’s dictatorial rogue behavior and failure to follow appropriate channels that is causing the problem.

      • I’m glad we at least agree that big money (special interest groups) control our politicians at least to a certain degree. I will never change my mind about that letter even if Obama was the only one negotiating with Iran. Cheney didn’t want congress interfering while Reagan was vicariously through North dealing with Iran illegally. North was convicted of 3 felonies and somehow served no time and was rewarded for his nefarious activities by becoming a commentator on FOX. The problem here is that it is not just the USA negotiating with Iran, but also Russia, China, the UK, France and Germany. Do you think these countries would want to waste their time when the next administration could nullify the treaty? I don’t even know if they could do that. That treaty should be legally binding for the length it was made. How would we feel if we were trying to hammer out a treaty with North Korea along with these same countries and when a new govt formed in France and they decided to nullify it? Would one country have the power to nullify it. Even if our congress “nullified” it, would it really be nullified or would all nations have to nullify it. That letter was nothing more than Cotton thanking that special interest group for their nearly one million dollar bribe and he has put into question our nation’s integrity with every nation in the world because of $ and partisanship. Let’s keep the partisan bs here in the US and abroad let’s try to come across as a united states of America, not disunited…that makes us look weak.

      • They weren’t classified discussions and the letter said nothing that wasn’t available in the media. Guess again. And Obama and class don’t belong in the same sentence. You really should stop kissing his ass. Moochelle is all the man he needs.

      • look above. you and class don’t belong in the same book. there r things called books. ck them out,

      • It would be called the Logan Act. None of the Senators violated the act. The Act title is ” Private communication with a foreign Government.” the communication was an open letter that was quite public and fully made aware to the media. The reason Obama or the DOJ does not prosecute because there is NO CASE. He would be an absolute fool to go after them. He would lose just like he is losing in the courts as we speak on amnesty. So all this BS talk of treason and sedition is nothing more than Politics as usual for this Administration. Hrh Antonio Joaquin Ramos, I suggest you take the time to actually read the U.S. code before you start to slander and libel individuals in Congress. They have not committed treason or sedition by definition within the Code. And just to quash this further, Senators have been communicating with foreign governments since the start of this great country. There are many instances of this with Dems over the last six years as well. Including Democratic communications with Israel rudely telling Netanyahu not to come to the U.S. and speak to Congress. These communications were actually private and reported to the media later. Who cried violation of the Logan Act when they did it. Again, nothing but politics. So, get over it and move on.

      • Bill, IDK as to the legalities of that as I am not a lawyer. My sister is but she specializes in corporate law (M & A) so this is not her thing. If I was making a big deal about it I would have at least known the name. What is a big deal is that Cotton got a $960,000 “campaign contribution” from an ultra right wing Israeli group and I wonder if that may have motivated him to send this letter. Sending a letter to a foreign govt while 7 countries are trying to work out a deal saying that any deal reached may become invalid with the next administration completely undermines our credibility with not just Iran, but every other nation who will have to think twice whether we will stay true to our word or if the “agreement” may become null and void. The European nations involved didn’t like it, Cotton said that the letter wasn’t valid because it didn’t have a stamp on it later he said it was intended to “help” us, McCain when asked about the letter said he signs a lot of papers, etc. Everybody was trying to backpedal. So if not illegal, it hurt the USA’s credibility worldwide. A bonehead partisan move which will probably lead to no agreement being reached and the winners will be the radical Israelis and the radical Iranians who never wanted an agreement in the first place. As for amnesty, maybe Obama isn’t having the same luck Reagan had. Also, during the Iran Contra scandal in which Reagan was dealing with Iran (via North), Cheney was absolutely livid that congress should meddle in negotiations being conducted with a foreign govt. So it’s obviously not their function and they only did it to sabotage the negotiations. Maybe they were successful to everyone’s detriment. But you’re right, it’s politics as usual just like the huge fuss being made about Hillary’s private email account when Powell had one as well. I live in CA, so it’s a waste of my time to vote, because we know that all the electoral votes will go to the Dems b4 the first ballot is cast. But I am going to start voting each election, even if only symbolically, to express my support for a candidate but also as a vote against these ultra right wing lunatics who put partisanship above the well being of the nation.

      • Most countries know that when the Congress signs a treaty, it is validated, and is not changed by the next President or Congress. This so-called President in the white house at this time, is not acting like a president. He is acting like a dictator, and is trying to deny our Constitutional division of the three governmental groups. The President is only to carry out the laws. Not make them. He can bring to Iran what our Congress has stipulated as a negotiation, and if it is accepted, the Congress votes on it. The President is not the one who makes the laws or the agreements with other countries. He only enforces those agreements. So, OBAMA is completely in the wrong. And needs to be harnessed or impeached. He is doing wrong, against this country, and when someone is subverting the country, they need to be removed. Period.

      • IDK, almost everything you said is wrong. The President can make deals with other countries or groups and many times does not need the approval of Congress. If these 7 nations reach an agreement, our Congress will not vote on it. Why do you think they sent that letter to Iran? They knew this was their only chance to undermine the whole thing. Also, we can’t impeach a president because you don’t like him or you feel he has over reached his authority. This stuff has to be proven. Cut back on the FOX/WEST lies;

      • I claim to have gotten my JD from Harvard and I also went to Stanford, Wharton, MIT, University of Barcelona, Oxford, Open University in Greece and the ever so prestigious LaSorbonne in Paris. I am king of Swaziland and 102 years old. I am also a member of a group called “Christians against dinosaurs” which denies the existence of dinosaurs as the Bible says the world is around 10 or 20, or maybe 50,000 years old and these “scientists” using carbon dating claim the creatures are millions of yrs old and the Earth is 4 to 5 billion years old…blasphemers!!! In truth, I did lie. You got me. I just have a humble MBA from Princeton and am a hedge fund manager and not king of Swaziland. It’s called “satire”

      • If I were a Republican you would find it funny, admit it. I had never realized the level of frustration of the right wing as I seldom come to these forums but I can now empathize with you guys, but don’t worry Hussein will be out in less than 2 years and then you get Killary for 8 years. Don’t let it take your sense of humor away. Don’t you realize that all politicians are crooks? Read Machiavelli’s “The Prince” circa 1300 AD. Now cheer up and pray for a congress that doesn’t write undermining letters to foreign leaders and has some cojones. Cheer up;

      • Sorry, I forgot, if you want to talk LIAR, maybe you should talk about your beloved Allen West and this report “Obama removes Iran and Hezbollah from terror list; crickets from Congress “. Double check to see if it’s true, cause it ain’t. Cut back on Allen 100% and we’re gonna have to gradually taper you off of FOX 10% weekly for 10 weeks. I’ve never seen such a severe case of brainwashing, but I can help. Remember, I got my MD from Stanford…LOL…you’ll be fine, but check on this West story cause he has stuck his foot in his mouth once again.

      • If it will make you happy, my sister is a lawyer and graduated from the ultra left wing university UC Berkley. She and her husband ALWAYS vote Democrat.I am a humble hedge fund manager and have an MBA from Princeton. If I wanted to brag, I would have said my law degree is from Yale as it is the #1 law school in the country. BTW, both Killary and Bill went there. They met there. What a romance story. And Lewinsky thrown in, just great. Obama went to Harvard, just like JFK and others, but they are a lowly #2:(. BTW, tell your friend Eleanor that she’s also invited to Swaziland. I think Mandingo will be able to handle the both of you…you know, show you around.

      • [[ My sister is but she specializes in corporate law (M & A) so this is not her thing ]]

        Sure she is MBA, sure she is.

      • Bill, how do you feel about this article by West being a lie? Iran and Hizbullah are still on the list. Why do you feel he and FOX lie and put a spin on everything?

      • To be honest, I haven’t researched the issue. So, not to be vague, but until I have the data to make an informed comment, I will have to say no comment. Better to have the facts than to make blatantly ignorant comments. But I will get back to you on that.
        Actually, the only comment I will make on this is, How does someone forget to add key elements of a report. Especially, Iran and Hezbollah! If that is truly the case (research aside). Oops! I left off two of the most talked about elements in the news from the Middle East off the Intelligence Terror List which is part of the President’s Daily Briefing. Somebody better back peddle. What a moron! If there was an error, West and the News Agencies didn’t lie, they received bad info from a factual intelligence report. And yes, they should have fact checked better. But like I said, I will do my research and then jump into “fracus”.

      • This is the official link to the government site. I don’t know much about journalism, but one would think that if someone says that Iran and Hezbollah were left off of the state dept list of terrorist organizations, it wouldn’t be too much trouble to research this and I would think that as a reporter or newspaper or TV station they should verify this. It’s not like they’re looking at Watergate, just takes a sec. Here it is…http://www.state.gov/j/ct/rls/other/des/123085.htm

      • I will get my info from my Government sources as usual. Again, if there was an error or omission. A list on a website can be updated and changed at will. Please, don’t cry conspiracy or cover-up. I am not saying there was. I think if everyone, Mr. West, News Agencies, etc. got the same information then there is research to be done. No blanket statement here. There has to some basis in fact an I will get the information to make an informed statement. I don’t believe everything I read on the Web, do you?

      • It’s really not that big of a deal. Like I said, IDK how journalists work. Maybe if they get a story from what they consider to be a reliable source, they just go with it. But, no, just because you see something on the web, even from a government agency, it could be wrong. I just think journalists should check things out more thoroughly. I didn’t do my research on that Act of 1799 and said something that was incorrect (I lied…LOL) but not intentionally…Just remembered, the Logan Act. Like I said, this is really not that big of a deal but I think that we should always consider the source. If I’m watching NBC, I know I’m gonna get a liberal point of view and if watching FOX a more conservative point of view plus then throw in the spin and who knows what you’re getting!

      • I agree with you. See in reality we are not that far apart. We all have views and we are not always going to agree with each other. Earnest discussion is what it is all about. A blending of ideas. That is the true essence of the freedoms we enjoy.

      • I don’t know, how do you feel about Psaki, spinning BS all the time. She just keeps on stepping in cow dung. But I defer to answer your comment below.

      • I saw this question and must admit that I avoided it as I have no idea who Psaki is. I haven’t watched TV for almost a year. I’m guessing he/she is the host of a liberal TV show. I would sometimes watch O’Reilly cause he is a pretty smart guy although I would disagree with him on at least half of the issues. The main thing I didn’t like about the show is they tried to pretend to be “fair and balanced”. Balanced? 90% to the right. I would admire Bill more if he would just say he is conservative and that’s that. It’s no crime to be conservative, but please, Bill, who is your audience, 8 years olds. Now they are saying he made up stuff like the NBC guy and libs are calling for him to take 6 months off. Ironically, all the controversy has increased his ratings. He ain’t goin’ nowhere…LOL

      • I found this posted on your FaceBook site… What kind of sick creep are you?

        Hrh Antonio Joaquin Ramos… It’s not going to be easy running a country but I feel I can do it. My immediate goal will be to increase the life expectancy of my people. When I first came to this beautiful land in 2009 as a simple visitor and medical consultant, the average life expectancy of our people was 32 years, the lowest in the world. This was primarily due to AIDS and tuberculosis. I gave a speech in front of all of our 1.1 million citizens in which I told them I had a dream. I told them that as there wasn’t much to do in Swaziland, I understood that all they wanted to do was fornicate and that is ok, but I insisted that they use a love glove. I also told our local voodoo MD to come up with some type of a concoction to fight off tuberculosis and mentioned to my beloved citizens to extend each other the courtesy of not coughing or sneezing in somebody else’s face. As a result of these two minor changes, today in the year 2015, the life expectancy has risen to 50 years. An enormous accomplishment in such a short amount of time. I now, as their Monarchial King, vow to increase life expectancy by 10 years every five years until we reach 70. I also promise to acquire an x-ray machine to assist the voodoo MD in diagnosing TB and I furthermore promise that no matter the sacrifice, I will break in every virgin and instruct her as to proper etiquette during intimacy and HIV/AIDS prevention. Women will be allowed to continue to walk around topless, as is their God given right. Our magnificent animals will be protected and anyone caught poaching will be tried and if found guilty fed to the lions. Tourism will be promoted. I will make every effort to engender jobs for all of you over the age of 16 so you may be productive and stop copulating 24/7 like savages. As is customary, I will steal all the money in the treasury and any money that comes in, but this money will be put to good use, buying me a new leer jet, expensive sports cars and traveling the world to promote the wonders of Swaziland. I will not raise taxes and there will continue to be no taxes on your huts. I do this not because I have to, but because of my love of Swaziland, its people, the land itself and above all, because I just like the name Swaziland. Yes, I could have been King of neighboring Mozambique, but that just doesn’t sound as good. God bless all of you and God bless Swaziland.

      • That was my speech to my people of Swaziland. I kinda liked it, especially the part about breaking in the virgins. I know you have one, so once you find your sense of humor, you might not find it so creepy. Please do come and visit.

      • Pseudo-truth, I was trying to impress by being king of Swaziland and the fact I am entitled to break in all the virgins. That is freaky, but I have yet to meet someone that doesn’t like sex or a man that doesn’t mind a virgin. Maybe you are the first.

      • I keep forgetting to mention, if we could just set aside the personal insults for a moment, I am sure that you guys know that this article by West is bogus. Yep, West lied to you. Just like FOX does every day.

      • Hey spazz, is Newsweek lying too?

        U.S. Omits Iran and Hezbollah From Terror Threat List

        An annual security assessment presented to the U.S. Senate by James Clapper, the director of National Intelligence, has excluded Iran and the Lebanese militant group Hezbollah from its list of terror threats to U.S. interests, despite both being consistently included as threats in previous years.

        The unclassified report, issued by Clapper on February 26 and entitled the Worldwide Threat Assessment of the U.S. Intelligence Communities, was published by the Times of Israel amid Israeli concerns that Iran was omitted simply because of Tehran’s efforts to combat ISIS.

        In a previous report from January 2014, Clapper included Iran and Hezbollah in the ‘Terrorism’ section, writing that both “continue to directly threaten the interests of U.S. allies. Hizballah [sic] has increased its global terrorist activity in recent years to a level that we have not seen since the 1990s”. Iran was also given its own sub-heading in the ‘Terrorism’ section of such assessments in 2011, 2012 and 2013

      • Whatever. One of your Republican friends told me that this morning and I just assumed she knew what she was talking about. Bottom line is that this article by West is a complete lie. I am sure you must have gone to the official State Dpt site and seen those two entities still there. West and FOX are liars and you have been brainwashed beyond repair.

      • Inbred lib. You’re the most moronic MBA I ever met. Newsweek, not owned by FOX dumb ass, has the same story. Now go suck a dem or two.

      • You seem to have this obsession with oral sex but I think you were sodomized as a child and for some reason can’t respond to a simple question without a sexual reference or obscenity. Fortunately, I consider the source and don’t take it personally. I don’t care if these two sources say the same thing. Is your IQ level so low that you cannot go to the official State Dpt site and see these two terrorist listings? If not, then I will just conclude that I have dealt with a previously sodomized Neanderthal who can’t understand the most basic things.

      • [[ You seem to have this obsession with oral sex ]]

        I call ’em as I see ’em. No matte what any lib or Obama says, you lap it up. Literally. How’s that punk?

        [[ but I think you were sodomized as a child ]]

        No need to project MBA. If your daddy’s pokin; you, enjoy!

        [[ and for some reason can’t respond to a simple question without a sexual reference or obscenity.]]

        Don’t feel singled out Obama blower. I treat all leftard Obamites the same way. Especially when they come here posing as things they aren’t. If you want to come here with your hard left scum trolling tactics, I’ll treat you like the delinquent you are.

        [[ Fortunately, I consider the source and don’t take it personally ]]

        Of course you do troll. That is why you are responding. You want to have a pi$$ing match now because your inner moron has been hurt. So how is it working out so far?

        [[ I don’t care if these two sources say the same thing.]]

        I know. You’re a loyal and grotesquely stupid ass Obamite. You can’t help your ignorance.

        [[ Is your IQ level so low that you cannot go to the official State Dpt site and see these two terrorist listings?]]

        Oh it isn’t about IQ lefty. It’s about trust and it is about past history with this criminal administration. Do YOU believe everything that this administration has ever said? Think real hard before you answer. If you do then I will just conclude that I have dealt with a previously sodomized Neanderthal who can’t understand the most basic things.

      • I don’t believe everything that any administration or person tells me. Especially politicians. I’m sure I must have already mentioned to you Machiavelli’s “The Prince” circa 1300 AD. All politicians are corrupt and have been since the beginning of politics.

      • So what don’t you believe that this administration told us? And lose the phony “I’m educated” persona.

      • People likeYOU are a MAIN reason we have this…

        A Country Founded by Geniuses but Run by Idiots!

        If you can get arrested for hunting or fishing without a license, but

        not for entering and remaining in the country illegally — you might

        live in a nation that was founded by geniuses but is run by idiots.

        If you have to get your parents’ permission to go on a field trip or

        to take an aspirin in school, but not to get an abortion — you might

        live in a nation that was founded by geniuses but is run by idiots.

        If you MUST show your identification to board an airplane, cash a

        check, buy liquor, or check out a library book and rent a video, but not

        to vote for who runs the government — you might live in a nation that

        was founded by geniuses but is run by idiots.

        If the government wants to prevent stable, law-abiding citizens from

        owning gun magazines that hold more than ten rounds, but gives twenty

        F-16 fighter jets to the crazy new leaders in Egypt — you might live in a

        nation that was founded by geniuses but is run by idiots.

        If, in the nation’s largest city, you can buy two 16-ounce sodas, but

        not one 24-ounce soda, because 24-ounces of a sugary drink might make

        you fat — you might live in a nation that was founded by geniuses but is

        run by idiots.

        If an 80-year-old woman or a three-year-old girl who is confined to a

        wheelchair can be strip-searched by the TSA at the airport, but a woman

        in a burka or a hijab is only subject to having her neck and head

        searched — you might live in a nation that was founded by geniuses but

        is run by idiots.

        If your government believes that the best way to eradicate trillions

        of dollars of debt is to spend trillions more — you might live in a

        nation that was founded by geniuses but is run by idiots.

        If a seven-year-old boy can be thrown out of school for saying his

        teacher is “cute,” but hosting a sexual exploration or diversity class

        in grade school is perfectly acceptable — you might live in a nation

        that was founded by geniuses but is run by idiots.

        If hard work and success are met with higher taxes and more

        government regulation and intrusion, while not working is rewarded with

        Food Stamps, WIC checks, Medicaid benefits, subsidized housing, and free

        cell phones — you might live in a nation that was founded by geniuses

        but is run by idiots.

        If the government’s plan for getting people back to work is to

        provide incentives for not working, by granting 99 weeks of unemployment

        checks, without any requirement to prove that gainful employment was

        diligently sought, but couldn’t be found — you might live in a nation

        that was founded by geniuses but is run by idiots.

        If you pay your mortgage faithfully, denying yourself the newest

        big-screen TV, while your neighbor buys iPhones, time shares, a

        wall-sized do-it-all plasma screen TV and new cars, and the government

        forgives his debt when he defaults on his mortgage — you might live in a

        nation that was founded by geniuses but is run by idiots.

        If being stripped of your Constitutional right to defend yourself

        makes you more “safe” according to the government — you might live in a

        nation that was founded by geniuses but is run by idiots.

        If the media panders to your openly socialist leader while the IRS targets groups with dissenting views— you might live in a nation that was founded by geniuses but is run by idiots.

        If your government ‘cracks down’ on legal gun sales to law abiding citizens while secretly supplying illegal guns to Mexican drug cartels— you might live in a nation that was founded by geniuses but is run by idiots.

        If your local government (Chicago) outlawed gun ownership for ‘the safety of its citizens’ and now boasts the worst murder rate in the country — you might live in a nation that was founded by geniuses but is run by idiots.

        What a country!

        How about we give God a reason to continue blessing America?

        This was borrowed from another blog, author unknown, please spread it far and wide!

      • That was long, so I skimmed it. I am sure you didn’t write it, as that person is educated. It has a couple of valid points, but typical Republican rhetoric. I don’t think that god is gonna continue to bless this country because there is no god. This country is where it’s at because of our founding fathers and hard work and luck that any enemies, b4 flight, had to cover the Pacific or Atlantic Ocean to get to us. Canada was never a prob and Mexico invaded once and it cost them dearly, but the Mexicans are reclaiming all that land via illegal immigration. Reagan legalized millions, hopefully Obama can do also as we need the cheap labor. I live in CA and we could have a 35% larger agriculture industry but we just don’t have the Mexican laborers and the Americans don’t want to pick fruit. Congratulations, you have been 100% indoctrinated by the far right, maybe the tea party. Good luck to you, try to be a little bit more respectful towards people that have different opinions than you as this is a democracy and pray to your god to make it all better. IDK who wrote that, but it must have been Limbough or some Tea Party nut. Pray for them too, that they grow a brain.

      • Hey, I forgot, here’s the link …http://www.state.gov/j/ct/rls/other/des/123085.htm. I’m sure you will be able to find Iran and Hezbollah there. Unemployment reached 11% under Reagan, he was in favor of apartheid, we all know about Iran Contra, 120 members of his staff were either investigated or tried, he pardoned 3 crooks, the list is long, he wasted 30 billion dollars on that star wars defense system, you can imagine how much that is today taking into account the time value of $, he did strengthen our defense, was charismatic and had the best hair of any president. Anyways, u know about opportunity cost and the law of diminishing marginal returns, so I gotta go.

      • And when was this list last updated? Breitbart, Youngcons, Freedom Outpost, Rightwingnews, Times of Israel, WhaleOil (New Zealand), and others are all reporting the same thing. Did none of these news organizations verify??

      • That link shows the current list.
        All those outlets you mentioned, and this one, just repeated the same story.
        Clapper typed up a list of terrorist organizations and left a couple off, probably by mistake.
        There has been no confirmation from any of the sources you listed and the official list is still posted with Hizbollah still on it.

      • HAHAHA
        wow… you look really stupid junior.
        he didn’t leave them off the list.
        Allen West is repeating a false story.
        They are all still on the list of foreign terrorist organizations.
        They have not been removed.

        James Clapper typed up a list and left some people off by mistake when he typed it.
        rightwing lunatic websites that don’t fact check, like this one, started repeating the false story that Obama removed those groups from the official list of terrorist groups.
        He did not.
        Didn’t you notice that mainstream conservative news sites like FOX didn’t even report the story this way.
        FOX news reported that James Clapper left them off a report …not that they were removed from the list of terrorist organizations.

        here is the actual list moron.
        http://www.state.gov/j/ct/rls/other/des/123085.htm

      • Here ya go inbred. Is Newsweek lying too?

        http://www.newsweek.com/iran-and-hezbollah-omitted-us-terror-threat-list-amid-nuclear-talks-314073

        U.S. Omits Iran and Hezbollah From Terror Threat List

        An annual security assessment presented to the U.S. Senate by James Clapper, the director of National Intelligence, has excluded Iran and the Lebanese militant group Hezbollah from its list of terror threats to U.S. interests, despite both being consistently included as threats in previous years.

        The unclassified report, issued by Clapper on February 26 and entitled the Worldwide Threat Assessment of the U.S. Intelligence Communities, was published by the Times of Israel amid Israeli concerns that Iran was omitted simply because of Tehran’s efforts to combat ISIS.

Iran was also given its own sub-heading in the ‘Terrorism’ section of such assessments in 2011, 2012 and 2013

      • HAHAHA.. you are retarded.

        You either didn’t read the story and my comment or you’re just too stupid to understand.

        Hizbollah was left off a report James Clapper wrote.
        But they are still on the government’s list of foreign terrorist organizations, you moron.
        Obama never removed them.

        You are retarded.

        they are still listed …
        I know you have a [problem reading, so they are the 8th one down
        http://www.state.gov/j/ct/rls/other/des/123085.htm

      • And of course you beLIEve anything the Obama administration says. Right inbred? Benghazi? IRS/Lerner? Fast and furious? Hillary emails? Your boy trying to interfere with Israel’s election? Wipe the Barack off your face moron.

      • Brendan, I don’t see how they can deny what is on the screen. I could have sworn I saw Iran there yesterday (under some long name like Islamic Republic of Iran whatever) but it might have been Iraq. Hezbollah was definitely there a few hours ago, but I think they spell it Hizbollah. Don’t pay attention to Martin, he’s just trying to get a rise out of you. Keep in mind, you are NEVER going to change anybodys’ mind on these forums. These are radicalized persons (both Reps & Dems) and they all just want to beat up on the administration and anything democratic. I just come her to have fun but if anybody gets nasty I just don’t respond. Andy Martin was getting borderline.

    • Gayle, How dare you bring Shakespeare into this acrimonious dispute and Romeo and Juliet nonetheless? I completely surrender myself to you. Although King Obama will go down in history as one of the best, I will call him a dunce if that will please my lady. As for his court, most would agree they are a cast of fools. But let’s desist from this political nonsense and speak of matters of the heart, shall we, my sweet;

      • Then call him a dunce because it would please this lady immeasurably. However I’m far too old to be playing around on balconies and such. What a hoot you are.

      • Age is only a number, my sweet; I do love Shakespeare so much that you motivated me to read Romeo and Juliet again. The heart never grows old.

  8. The words “disgraceful” and “infuriating” have become overused where this administration’s actions are concerned, and in this instance, they fall woefully short.

      • There’s a hell of a lot more to back that up than there is to support your ignorant “undermining letter” comment above.

      • Bottom line, it was wrong to send that letter. Cheney got mad too when Reagan tried to deal with Iran and congress was trying to get involved. I consider them traitors even though they may have not violated any law. They were undermining us and the other countries involved in the negotiations.

      • And yet, you evidently don’t view a “deal” which allows Iran to develop nuclear weapons to be “undermining” the United States. That would be the same Iran that spent most of the previous decade waging a proxy war against us, which involved killing our soldiers, in Iraq. I’m guessing you were also not bothered by the numerous past occasions when high-ranking Democrats have physically traveled to hostile countries during Republican administrations for in-person negotiations with declared enemies of this country, for the express purpose of undermining the foreign policies of Presidents Bush and Reagan, to name just two. Of course, that was back when “protest was patriotic”, wasn’t it…?

        The skewed, insincere and opportunistic “patriotism” of the American Left is truly a remarkable thing.

      • CWS, don’t believe everything you read. For example, this article by West is a lie, it’s false. As for a nuclear Iran, I didn’t know you had a copy of the final agreement. But say we tell them in 10 years they can proceed and then we change the rules The Republicans have already made every nation in the world question whether we will keep our word. I do like what you say here “The skewed, insincere and opportunistic “patriotism” of the American Left is truly a remarkable thing.” I’m sure you’ve read Machiavellis’ “The Prince” circa 1300 AD…politics is total corruption, just the way it is. Embrace people withbrains. We welcome yu here at th DmocraticParty. Leave he losers behind. For this, thogh, you will have tostop reading lies like this reort by Wes and the lies put out by FX. You may hve wihdrawl symptoms t fist, but it wil be orth it in the end. Dojoin, you seem e a smart man/woman,

      • How very charitable of you. However, I’m afraid I will have to decline your generous offer on the basis that I do, in fact, “embrace people with brains”. That, and virtually everything you’ve said on this entire page has been wildly, hilariously, and very easily demonstrably false.

        That is to say that there is indeed a colossal liar, here, and it is not Col. West. However, since you’ve been relatively civil to me, at least, I’m willing to entertain the possibility that you may simply be delusional. Though at the end of the day, it doesn’t make much difference one way or the other.

        In closing, I wasn’t aware that FOX owned the Times of Israel and Newsweek. I also was not aware that James Clapper was on their payroll. Rupert Murdoch’s reach has grown long indeed, evidently.

      • As you wish, but you have an open invitation. both Reagan and Einstein switched parties (D to R). One has to be smart to reevaluate one’s parties’ stand in relation to the world as it currently is around you.

      • Hrh Antonio Joaquin Ramos Thanks for making comments here. We enjoy watching you leftists making fools out of yourselves.

  9. WHY isn’t Congress doing anything to stop this Administration? One word – COMPLICIT. They have done nothing but lie. Stop ObamaCare? Stop Immigration? Stop the rapidly rising debt? Get real. They are hand-in-hand leading us to financial destruction and ultimately WWIII. There’ll be jobs then, you betcha… for those who survive… and who don’t care about losing the Republic to a complete oligarchy.

    • I don’t know…unemployment is like at a 10 year low right now. But, yes, the nation is going to hell in a hand basket because of the undermining letter sending Republican senators.

      • Guess that you like your liberal buddies simply don’t see the homeless and unemployed who have fallen off the unemployment rolls in every major city, or the tent cities springing up everywhere; or are oblivious to the underemployed and unemployed 40% of the population living on food stamps. But you go right ahead and believe everything the MSM is gleefully spouting, if it makes you feel better, mmmmkay?

      • Sweetheart, lecture me on something else. I have an MBA from Princeton and run a hedge fund. But we could compare Obama’s unemployment rate of less than 5% to Reagan’s 11%. I AM aware of what goes into determining the rate and the # of people that stopped looking and all that bs. Obama’s rate is less than half of Reagan’s astronomical 11%. I guarantee you that you liked Reagan and he was one of our worse presidents, charismatic, but bad as in nefarious type bad. He was also for apartheid. Pardoned 3 crooks, etc…

      • Let me dumb this down for you. A BS requires 4 years of college. An MBA requires 6 and it is a Masters in Business Administration. Most investment bankers and hedge fund managers have MBAs. Have someone that finished the sixth grade explain this to you. Your unemployment figure was unforgettable, though…lol…too funny.

      • Hey, I really appreciate that. Educated persons normally don’t use that type of language and that’s why most of Frank’s comments were removed by the moderator. I would expect nothing less from somebody that probably never even finished PUBLIC high school. Well, you and Frank are gonna have lots to talk about for the next couple of years about Obama. The rage that you have been enduring for the last 6 years is palpable and 20 more months od Obama doing whatever he wants…wow I can see why Frank had such an oral fixation…probably needed a pacifier to fall asleep at night. Yes, I could have said something else, but I’m not gonna lower myself to his level. Look at it this way, the 8 years after Obama under Hillary might be better. I mean I don’t think she is Muslim and it appears that she may have been born here. I’m sure FOX will give all of you lots more kool aid to give you lots more conspiracy theories and then you can discuss them here while O’Reilly and Hannetty and all those guys keep getting richer as you imbeciles believe all that nonsense. Well, enjoy the next decade.

      • Sit down you condescending prikk. You have nothing but mouth. You couldn’t run a paper route.

        OOPS! The MBA has his mouth full of Obama. Reagan left with unemployment at 5.3

        http://data.bls.gov/generated_files/graphics/latest_numbers_LNS14000000_1988_1988_all_period_M12_data.gif

        Looks like your boy has a horrible records of job creation v Reagan too.

        http://utahpoliticalcapitol.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/04/UnemployRateOct2012.jpg

        And your boy has created more welfare recipients and part timers than any POTUS in history.

      • BTW I think this discussion is about 2 terrorist groups being taken off the list as conveyed by Allan West. I think they were NOT taken off the list. After all, West works for FOX, the station with the most lies. I guarantee you they weren’t taken off. Just West and FOX trying to get their constant lies through.

      • You ought to put two TVs together and for 24 hours, watch FOX alongside of NBC and then tell me where you saw REAL news and REAL truth, NBC will be spending it’s time singing kumbya!

      • NBC is just as bad as FOX. I didn’t say to watch NBC, I said if you want no spin stay away from FOX.

      • I don’t care how he spells his name. They were not taken off the list. Alen lied, again.

      • Hrh, you and Brendan are the ones that are printing lies. If you would do just a smidgen of research, you would realize that Clapper’s annual 2015 Terrorist Threat report entitled “The Worldwide Threat Assessment of the U.S. Intelligence Communities” is a separate entity than the list that you keep posting a link to at state.gov. Clapper did indeed leave The State of Iran and Hezbollah OFF the list! AND, it was not a mistake. Later in the report, Clapper mentions “the Shiite Muslim militant group [Hezbollah] once in reference to the threat it faces from radical Sunni groups – such as ISIS and the al-Nusra Front – on Lebanon’s borders. In regard to Iran, the report names it as both a cyber and regional threat to the U.S. because of its support for Syrian president Bashar al-Assad. However, the report speaks of Tehran’s assistance in preventing ‘ISIL [another term for ISIS] from gaining large swaths of additional territory’ in Iraq. It adds that the Islamic Republic has ‘intentions to dampen sectarianism, build responsive partners, and deescalate tensions with Saudi Arabia.'” Here is the link I am referencing from Newsweek, http://www.newsweek.com/iran-a

        So as any intelligent person can see, Allen West is not printing lies; neither is Fox, unless you believe that Newsweek is also lying! Brendan & you are the ones who should print a retraction!

      • I actually have to go to work. At this point I’m confused and don’t think that this is such a big issue that it warrants more of my time. IDK how news agencies work…maybe they get a story from a “credible” source and they all go with it. Last time I checked Hizbollah was still on the list and West says in his headline crickets from Congress. I think that if they had been left off the list as West asserts, congress would have been all over Obama. In any case , its good to see Iran killing ISIS members, a lot more than Israel has done. Iran use to be our buddy, remember just like Iraq. If I were another country I would not trust us, especially after that letter sent to the 7nations trying to work out a deal by 47 Republican senators But ISIS is so stupid that they are attacking fellow Muslim nations and so far Jordan, Egypt, Iraq and Iran are fighting them. We might not even have to put US boots on the ground. West doesn’t want to give Obama the OK to deploy our military and congress is still haggling over the issue Thank God these Muslim counties are helping out.

      • 92 MILLION folks NOT in the workforce! would you believe 23% unemployment? You should cause it’s TRUE!

      • Frank, I have an MBA from Princeton, I know how to calculate unemployment. If it will make you feel better, the economy is due for a correction and they will blame Obama. You should be more concerned about this article by West being a lie.

      • [[ Frank, I have an MBA from Princeton ]]

        Oh goody! Another internet genius. U6 is 11.4. Do you know what that means MBA?

        The what is due for a correction? I never heard of an economy correcting itself MBA. Wanna MBA-splain that? Idiot.

      • I might have explained but as you were disrespectful I won’t. Besides, I feel uncomfortable posting on one of West’s false commentaries regarding Iran and Hezbollah being removed from the list.

      • Here ya go sperm burper. It’s an economic downturn and a market correction. What does your MBA stand for? My Bull$h!tt!n Ass?

  10. I le­ft m­­y office j­o­b an­d today I get paid 85 Bucks per hour. …How I did it? I am working online at home! My previous job wasn’t so pleasurable for me ,so I was forced to take a chance on something new… Two years after…I can say it was a best decision I ever made! Check it out, what i do… -> –>Learn more info here <-

  11. i wonder if Allen West will print a retraction when he realizes that the story he posted is false.
    nah… of course not.
    They are still on the US Government’s list of foreign terrorist organizations.

    This false story has been all over right wing sites and it started because one report forgot to include them on the list.

    Did any of these right wing sites bother to check the official government list of foreign terrorist organizations to see if Hezbollah had been removed?
    NOPE.
    They printed the story anyway.

    here is the official list on the State Department’s website.
    The list also shows what groups were removed and when

    • Brendan, you and Hrh are the ones that are printing lies. If you would do just a smidgen of research, you would realize that Clapper’s annual 2015 Terrorist Threat report entitled “The Worldwide Threat Assessment of the U.S. Intelligence Communities” is a separate entity than the list that you keep posting a link to at state.gov. Clapper did indeed leave The State of Iran and Hezbollah OFF the list! AND, it was not a mistake. Later in the report, Clapper mentions “the Shiite Muslim militant group [Hezbollah] once in reference to the threat it faces from radical Sunni groups – such as ISIS and the al-Nusra Front – on Lebanon’s borders. In regard to Iran, the report names it as both a cyber and regional threat to the U.S. because of its support for Syrian president Bashar al-Assad. However, the report speaks of Tehran’s assistance in preventing ‘ISIL [another term for ISIS] from gaining large swaths of additional territory’ in Iraq. It adds that the Islamic Republic has ‘intentions to dampen sectarianism, build responsive partners, and deescalate tensions with Saudi Arabia.'” Here is the link I am referencing from Newsweek, http://www.newsweek.com/iran-and-hezbollah-omitted-us-terror-threat-list-amid-nuclear-talks-314073

      So as any intelligent person can see, Allen West is not printing lies; neither is Fox, unless you believe that Newsweek is also lying! Hrh & you are the ones who should print a retraction!

      • Actually, Allen West is, in fact, printing lies. I do not dispute anything you wrote about Clapper’s report.
        But Mr West’s allegations go beyond the Clapper report.

        Mr West accuses the President of removing Hizbollah from the official list of terrorist organizations and that is false.

      • Would that be the first instance of Barry acting “unilaterally”? Or of him testing for pushback? Your defense is…incompetence? It ACCIDENTALLY got left off in one report (from the DIRECTOR of National Intelligence) just coincidentally as Barry’s regime indicated that “even a bad deal is better than no deal”, that (at least initially) Iran would be “allowed” to have nukes in, oh, ten years or so and Barry has aligned the US with a known state sponsor of terrorism…oh, and Barry and his regime have indicated they will side against Israel at the UN, while this state sponsor of terrorism reaffirms their intention of wiping Israel off the map. All that from Iran, our new buddies who were “accidentally” left off of one list…a TERRORIST watch list.

        As for whatever “deal” Barry is chasing, WE don’t know what’s in it. According to him, even after it’s done, NO ONE–not even our Congress–will know what’s in it. I assume his BFFs in the UN will know but maybe not.

        Yes, it COULD be an oversight, a “mistake”…pure incompetence that the country the president is in negotiations with over nuclear weapons (and their #1 terror group) just coincidentally is ‘overlooked’ in a report from the top guy who should know. But given the track record of Barack Hussein [Soetero] Obama and his most-opaque-EVER regime of progressive leftists…I seriously doubt it. Oh, it will likely be “corrected”…or not. Guess we’ll see. (BTW–your list hasn’t been updated in 7 months.)

      • …and the report is newer, more current than your list…and they aren’t listed in the report. So it’s either incompetence on the part of the DNI or “unilateral action” but the only “hard” evidence for the moment is the report…the most current document.

      • It’s not my list. It is the US government’s official list of foreign terrorist organizations and Obama has not made the removals Mr West alleged.

        Clapper’s report about current threats is not the official government list of foreign terrorist organizations and does not magically remove anyone from the list.

        Mr West can reasonably argue that Clapper’s report omits the threat from Hizbolla and Iran.
        He may also argue that there may have been political consideration.

        But Mr West’s allegation that Obama has removed them from the list of terrorist organizations is false.

      • thanks… as i suspected… you have no idea what you’re talking about.
        I missed nothing.
        You tried to imply I did just because you didn’t like me correcting your hero.

  12. Obama and his allies in the Muslim Brotherhood have been pushing their agenda on the World since the Arab spring was used to destabilize the region allowing the expansion of the Brotherhoods goals

    “The Muslim Brotherhood has been the ideal Sunni partner for Islamic
    Iran’s unity goals. After more than three decades following the
    revolution, Tehran continues to follow the same strategy. Even the
    Khomeinists’ relations with the symbols of the Muslim Brotherhood date
    further back in time, as seen with their support of Hamas in Palestine,
    coordination with Rachid Ghannouchi in exile and boosting of the Muslim
    Brotherhood in Egypt and even Syria.”
    why is it not an act of treason for Obama and his administration to give aid and comfort tot eh enemies of the world ?
