Nuclear Options Players

As expected, Mitch McConnell pulled the trigger and made Chuck Schumer’s filibuster glow in the dark. As for the boy in the husky pants who runs North  Korea: he’s keeping his nuclear options open for now.

1980s Are Calling

1980s are calling

In a 2012 presidential debate Romney claimed Russia was the biggest threat to the United States. Obama mocked him saying, “The 1980s are calling and they want their foreign policy back.”

Hillary’s Nuclear Codes Words

Hillary attacked The Donald in a major foreign policy speech. She said he’s temperamentally unfit to be president:

“Donald Trump’s ideas aren’t just different, they’re dangerously incoherent. They’re not even really ideas, just a series of bizarre rants, personal feuds and outright lies,” she said. “He is not just unprepared. He is temperamentally unfit to hold an office that requires knowledge, stability and immense responsibility.”

Not only that…

“He should not have the nuclear codes because it’s very easy to imagine Donald Trump leading us into a war just because someone got under his very thin skin. We cannot let him roll the dice with America.”

On the other hand, due to her failure to secure top secret material on her private server, Judge Napolitano thinks Hillary is likely guilty of espionage.

Moderate Missiles From Iran

Joe Biden had an interesting two day visit to Israel. A Palestinian terrorist stabbed and killed an American student near a beach where Mrs. Biden was dining. Meanwhile Iran tested fired two ballistic missiles.

The missiles have a range of over 1000 miles. At its nearest point, Israel is 600 miles away. The missiles were hand inscribed in Hebrew with the words “Israel must be wiped out.”

Moderate Missiles

In December Iran fired rockets near the U.S. aircraft carrier Harry S. Truman in the Strait of Hormuz. In January Iran detained U.S. sailors and humiliated them on national television.

Vox gave the the Obama nuke deal a shout-out for bringing moderates to power in Iran.

Isis Oil Crisis

151201-isis-oilPresident Obama is so green it’s tough to get him to take his own side in a fight.

Former CIA Director Michael Morell told Charlie Rose the reason President Obama refused to bomb ISIS oil facilities was to save the environment.

Really.

Obama was also reluctant to bomb ISIS oil trucks because he didn’t want to harm the drivers. When the trucks finally were bombed, we gave 45 minutes advance warning by dropping  leaflets telling the drivers to run away.

Dick Morris thinks this is “loony”. ISIS pays its jihadis with the $2 million a day it makes in oil sales. Here’s what Morris had to say about the environmental cost of putting a stop to that:

This kind of environmental fantasizing was in vogue during the Gulf War, when Saddam Hussein’s destruction of all of Kuwait’s oil fields was thought to be likely to cause huge damage. Paul Crutzen, a noted atmospheric scientist, predicted that a “nuclear winter” might ensue with a cloud of smoke covering half the Northern Hemisphere for at least 100 days. Carl Sagan argued that the effects of the destruction of Kuwaiti oil fields could be comparable to the explosion of the volcano Tambora in 1815, which produced “a year without summer.”

It never happened.
