Enemy of Your Enemy

150304-enemy-of-your-enemyIranian Revolutionary Guard forces are fighting in Iraq against ISIS. That would be the Islamic Republic vs the Islamic State. President Obama is negotiating a secret nuke deal with the Islamic Republic. Not that this has anything to do with Islam.

In his speech before Congress, Bemjamin Netanyahu reminded his audience that in this case the enemy of your enemy is still your enemy. Many Democrats saw Bibi and Boehner as the enemy and boycotted the speech. Here’s a list of no-shows from IBD.

Charles Krauthammer points out that Netanyahu hinted Israel could live with an agreement if Iran changes is aggressive ways. President Obama, another no-show, dismissed the speech as “nothing new”.

Nukes for Iran

President Obama’s original line was no nukes for Iran. That may have changed. According to leaks, the administration is working on a ten year plan allowing enough centrifuges to have a nuclear infrastructure but not enough to build bombs. At the end of the ten years, thanks to Obama’s persuasive power, the mullahs will be mollified, Iran will become a normal country, and we’ll have nothing to worry about.

Bibi is unpersuaded:

The deal “doesn’t block Iran’s path to the bomb, it paves Iran’s path to the bomb,” Netanyahu said.

Keystone and internet.

President Obama says he has a pen and a phone and doesn’t need Congress. Last week he used the pen to veto the Keystone pipeline and the phone to lobby the FCC to regulate the internet.

Net Neutrality

The FCC took over the internet with a 3-2 ruling. President Obama had pressured the independent agency to embrace “Net Neutrality“. The FCC will rule the world wide web as a 1930’s era public utility.

O’Reilly Zone

150226-o'reillyIn the wake of the Brian Williams meltdown over exaggerated war stories Media Matters started digging dirt on Fox’s Bill O’Reilly. David Corn wrote in Mother Jones that O’Reilly lied about being in the Falkland Islands war zone in 1982. O’Reilly says he never claimed to be in the Falklands.

O’Reilly then went on the offensive in the MSM war zone:

During a phone conversation, he told a reporter for The New York Times that there would be repercussions if he felt any of the reporter’s coverage was inappropriate. “I am coming after you with everything I have,” Mr. O’Reilly said. “You can take it as a threat.”

O’Reilly hardly factors as the Time’s biggest threat. NYT reporter James Risen says the Obama administration is the greatest threat to a free press in a generation..
