This Iranian deal just keeps getting better and better, doesn’t it?
In one of his most recent tweets to his followers on social media, Iran’s Supreme Leader, the Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, had this little gem of a proverb to share. Referring to comments President Obama made to quiet any doubt about the Iran deal, Khamenei responded that while Obama may think he can easily knock out the Iranian military the truth is that the USA would be committing suicide if we tried to do so.
“US president has said he could knock out Iran’s military. We welcome no war, nor do we initiate any war, but…”
“We welcome no war, nor do we initiate any war, but…
If any war happens, the one who will emerge loser will be the aggressive and criminal U.S.”
--- Ayatollah Ali Khamenei
Iran has been the central instigator of unrest in the region for YEARS, using the stick of their military arm, the Islamic Fascist Extremists of their Al Quds Forces, to poke and prod and push their neighbors into violence. His obviously empty threats are simply laughable… and the moment a Republican enters the Oval Office you can be sure that just as when Reagan entered the Presidency in 1979, the aggressive Iranian Tiger will return to being a passive Iranian pussycat.
Right now, the financial world is focused on the breathtaking stock market crash in China, but don’t forget to keep an eye on what is happening in Europe.
Collectively, the European Union has a larger population than the United States, a larger economy than either the U.S. or China, and the banking system in Europe is the biggest on the planet by far. So what happens in Europe really matters, and at this point the European economy is absolutely primed for a meltdown. European debt levels have never been higher, European banks are absolutely loaded with non-performing loans and high-risk derivatives, and the unemployment rate in the eurozone is currently more than double the unemployment rate in the United States.
In all the euphoria surrounding the “deal” that temporarily kept Greece in the eurozone, I think that people have forgotten that the economic and financial fundamentals in Europe have continued to deteriorate. Whether Greece ultimately leaves the eurozone or not, a great financial crisis is inevitably coming to Europe. It is just a matter of time.
In many ways, the economy of Europe is in significantly worse shape than the U.S. economy. Just recently, the IMF issued a report which warned that the eurozone is “susceptible to negative shocks” and could be facing very tough economic times in the near future. The following comes from the Guardian…
The International Monetary Fund has warned the eurozone faces a gloomy economic outlook thanks to lingering worries over Greece, high unemployment and a banking sector still battling to shake off the financial crisis.
The IMF’s latest healthcheck on the eurozone found it was “susceptible to negative shocks” as growth continues to falter and monetary policymakers run out of ways to help. It called for an urgent “collective push” from the currency union to speed up reforms or else risk years of lost growth.
But even if there are no “shocks” to the European economy in the months ahead, the truth is that it is already in terrible shape and much of the continent is already mired in an ongoing economic depression.
Today, the official unemployment rate in the United States is just 5.3 percent, but the unemployment rate for the eurozone as a whole is sitting at 11.1 percent. That is an absolutely terrible number, but most Europeans have come to accept it as “the new normal”. The following are some of the prominent nations in Europe that currently have an unemployment rate of above 10 percent…
France: 10.3 percent
Italy: 12.4 percent
Portugal: 13.7 percent
Spain: 22.37 percent
Greece: 25.6 percent
And remember, these unemployment numbers often greatly understate the true scope of the problem.
For instance, in Italy the number of people “willing to work but not actively searching” is much higher than the number of Italians that are officially unemployed…
Meanwhile, debt levels in virtually all European nations have shot up substantially since the last financial crisis. Just consider the staggering debt to GDP ratios in the following nations…
France: 95.0 percent
Spain: 97.7 percent
Belgium: 106.5 percent
Ireland: 109.7 percent
Portugal: 130.2 percent
Italy: 132.1 percent
Greece: 177.1 percent
Greece is not the only debt crisis that Europe is facing by a long shot. All of the other nations on that list are going down the exact same path that Greece has gone down.
So whether or not a “permanent solution” can be found for Greece, the reality of the matter is that Europe’s debt problems are only just beginning.
Meanwhile, the economic crisis in Greece continues to become even more dire. At this point, nearly half of all loans in the country are non-performing, authorities are warning that bank account holders may be forced to take 30 percent haircuts when the banks are finally “bailed in”, and it is being reported that Greek banks may keep current restrictions on cash “in place for months”…
Nothing has been “solved” in Greece. The only thing that has been accomplished so far is that Greece has been kept in the euro (at least for the moment). But for the average person on the street things continue to go from bad to worse.
How soon will it be until we see similar scenarios play out in Italy, Spain, Portugal and France?
As things in the eurozone continue to deteriorate, nations that were planning to join the euro are suddenly not so eager to do so…
Yes, definitely keep an eye on what is happening in China. Without a doubt, it is very big news.
But I believe that what is going on in Europe will ultimately prove to be an even bigger story.
The greatest financial crisis that Europe has ever seen is coming, and it is going to shake up the entire planet.
They accomplish this through a spectacular hockey stick of data tampering, which corrupts the US temperature trend by almost two degrees.
The biggest component of this fraud is making up data. Almost half of all reported US temperature data is now fake. They fill in missing rural data with urban data to create the appearance of non-existent US warming.
A friend sends the heads up to be on the alert for a new term being put into use by the busy as beavers climate change fraudsters: The newly minted term du jour is: ‘Climate Security’. (Financial Times, July 27, 2015)
It would help more than anything if the global warming/climate change shysters could get the masses to believe that that they need protection from the weather and that they are the only ones that can provide it. As the weather guy warns every summer: ‘Don’t go out there, you may find yourself standing melted into a puddle at your own feet”. Or in winter: “Stay indoors because if you go out, your nose may drop off in the frigid, pitiless cold.”
They tend to blame everything on the weather in the hopes that folk will not notice their ever rising taxes, or not notice how illegal aliens are taking over the neighborhood.
If you can blame slavery on global warming—like Pope Francis does—think of what it can do if it gets to sink its teeth into little old you.
Al Gore, Canadian Maurice Strong, former Soviet president Mikhail Gorbachev and countless of other ‘stake holders’ fighting global warming and making scads of money while they were at it, waited 4.5-billion years too long to confront the weather. The Creator made the weather and all living things, including the radical environmental activist and griping about either won’t change a thing.
Do the global warming alarmists really think the plebes would sincerely believe they could save humanity all by the wild claim to have the handle on something called ‘Climate Security’?
Down here on Mother Earth, way down under the clouds, the rain, the snow and blankety-blank summer humidity, they can’t even save us from their own utter stupidity.
They send words of sympathy after each terrorist attack, (though they call them anything but), the glib ones that say, “My thoughts and prayers are with their families” all the while letting in the ravening hordes under bleeding liberal policies that make us wince upon hearing them.
So the next time you think you see a radical jihadist coming for you, you’re only imagining it because Obama et al say there’s no such thing, but the sun gleaming off his AK-47 is a real threat.
In short, the umbrellas of protection from the ‘Climate Security’ force are like the ones bought from the local Dollar Store: They collapse the minute whipping winds come up in any rain storm.
In the ever changing lexicon of the global warming alarmists, we’ve had global warming, man-made global warming and its demonization of Co2, and climate change. Now it’s ‘climate security’ all because someone thought it had a believable ring to it.
These global warming alarmists are making more money than the entrepreneurs (capitalist pigs) that they continue to rail on about.
Anyone who believes that the U.N., or their latest kingpins Obama and Pope Francis are going to save them from climate change has been too long out in the sun.
Third Undercover Video Purports to Show Planned Parenthood Director Standing Near Dead Fetuses Discussing Price ‘Per Item’ | Video | TheBlaze.com
A pro-life, medical ethics group has released a short documentary that features an ex-lab worker who claims that Planned Parenthood makes a profit off of aborted fetuses, and a doctor who allegedly “prices body parts ‘per item’” — the third video in an ongoing series of undercover films that have landed the abortion provider at the center of national controversy.
“I thought I was going to be just drawing blood, not procuring tissue from aborted fetuses,” O’Donnell said in the clip.
“For whatever we could procure, they would get a certain percentage. The main nurse was always trying to make sure we got our specimens,” she said. “No one else really cared, but the main nurse did because she knew that Planned Parenthood was getting compensated.”
Various clips are also interspersed throughout the more than 11-minute video, including comments from Dr. Deborah Nucatola — the Planned Parenthood Federation of America’s senior director of medical services who was featured in the first of the series of undercover videos that allegedly show officials discussing the sale of post-abortion fetal tissue and organs.

Netanyahu said to bitterly attack Kerry for placing Israel 'on the menu' of Iran deal | The Times of Israel
Depicting Israel as a potential victim of the newly concluded Iran nuclear deal, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Tuesday launched an unprecedentedly cynical attack on US Secretary of State John Kerry in a private conversation reported by Israel’s Army Radio.
Commenting on Kerry’s decision not to visit Israel during a trip to the Middle East next week, in which the secretary will discuss the Iran deal with Egyptian and Gulf leaders, Netanyahu was quoted as saying, “He really has no reason to come here.”
The Iran deal, which Netanyahu has bitterly criticized, “has nothing to do with us, and has no influence on us,” the prime minister went on bitterly, according to the radio report.
Kerry warned members of Congress on Tuesday that if they voted against the nuclear deal negotiated with Iran, Tehran would move forward toward an atomic bomb, international sanctions would crumble and the US would be left with none of the access and inspections provided for by the accord.

Things got slightly tense when Rep. Brad Sherman (D-Calif.) pressed Kerry on whether or not he would follow the “law” if Congress decided to override a presidential veto to block the Iran deal.
