"Rook" has some thoughts about Donald Trump.
Once again Trump sucks all the oxygen out of the atmosphere and leaves his GOP rivals gasping for air and grasping at straws to stay relevant. Trump's comments about disfigured former POW John McCain weren't meant to be mean, just the strategy of a master showman. Once again he draws nearly all attention of the media away from the other candidates and to himself. In the entertainment industry they say bad publicity is still publicity and way better than no publicity. The other candidates can put up a front of annoyance, even contempt or disgust at Trump's remarks. But secretly they're all jealous of Trump's ability to keep the spotlight on himself.
When things slow down and the candidates start talking about relevant issues again, Trump will cast Obama and Hillary as treasonous Muslim sympathizers and call on the Justice Department to indict them both. Then he'll call on Congress, including many of his rival candidates, to impeach Obama. That will surely put them between a rock and a hard place during the debates. "Don't you believe Obama should be impeached? Then why haven't you sponsored an impeachment bill? Even if the RNC tried to keep the subject out of the debates, Trump would bring it up anyway. He's number one in the polls, so what are they going to do?
Trump is the Ring Master of this circus, Congress are the clowns, the other candidates are the aerial acrobats, the media are the big cats and the public are the elephants.

"Peter" has some thoughts about Obama's treaty with Iran.
Obama says the Iran Nuclear deal is the only option to war. Obama says it guarantees blockage of “every pathway to a nuclear bomb.” Obama says IAEA inspectors will have unfettered access to suspicious sites. Obama lies a lot!
War is not the only other option. Ratcheting up the sanctions to intolerable levels would bring Iran back to the table, hat in hand.
This “deal” isn’t worth the paper it’s written on because it does NOT block every pathway to a nuclear bomb. The “unfettered” access Obama asserts IAEA inspectors will have can be blocked by endless litigation through several levels of committees and commissions, on which Iran will have a seat at every level. Verification is mitigated by the “Dispute Resolution Mechanism” (the endless litigation clause) in Part Q contained in an annex to the agreement. There is NO provision in the deal for 24/7 access by IAEA inspectors anywhere, let alone at suspicious sites.
Obama is downplaying the concessions he and Kerry have made to Iran because they don’t want the public to know what inept, dishonest and untrustworthy negotiators they have been. But even they aren’t so stupid as not to understand the consequences of this “deal”: Bad for most of the Arab states in the Middle East; Bad for Israel; Bad for our own national security interests; and Bad for the economic stability of the rest of the world.
Obama and Kerry misrepresented the “deal” while they were putting it together and they continue to misrepresent it to the media, the public and the Congress. The truth must be brought to all the democrats in the Congress so that we can overcome Obama’s threatened veto of legislation which would cancel the “deal” for the sake of the world.
Obama is only concerned about his legacy. With this "deal" he has guaranted his legacy as the most dishonest, incompetent and destructive POTUS in history.

"Rook" has some thoughts on Obama's record.
The last Bush administration had a policy of taking the fight against Islamic terrorism to the terrorists, to fight them on their own turf instead of fighting them here at home. That policy resulted in NO Islamic terrorist attacks for the remainder of Bush's two terms in office after nine-eleven.
When Obama came into power he ordered the withdrawal of ALL U.S. troops from Iraq, leaving a vacuum of military sway in the region. Obama also initiated a policy of "leading from behind" and "No troops on the ground" in the war on Islamic terrorism, leaving the fight to the Arabs and Persians. All we have left in the fight against Islamic terrorism is a paltry couple thousand troops in Afghanistan, left there at the request of the Afghan president.
In the meantime Obama's policies have nurtured the growth and spread of both ISIS and Al Qaeda, the fall of Yemen to Iran backed Houti fighters (resulting in the loss of our last remaining Human Intelligence in the region), the destabilization of Libya, Iraq, Syria and large swaths of North Africa. Trade routes by sea are increasingly threatened. We have had ISIS and Al Qaeda attacks here at home, in Canada and most of Europe. ISIS has trained fighters living among us at home and thousands more in Mexico and Canada, planning to stage more attacks against us.
While the Middle East and Africa are in turmoil and Europe is shaking in their boots because of Obama's "leading from behind" and "no boots on the ground" policies, the Russians and China have been emboldened. Russia is staging clandestine military invasions of neighboring countries and China has expanded it's naval and other military assets into the waters of other countries, seizing islands and making claims of "territorial waters" in areas of open sea that have been free for all to navigate.
While Russia, China, Iran and North Korea have substantially increased their military and naval buildup, Obama and the Democrats have cut our military to the bone. Weapons and aircraft projects that took decades to develop have been cancelled or severely curtailed. We have decreased our available "boots on the ground" to a pittance of what they were seven years ago.
It took the United States a hundred years and two world wars to become the sole superpower and greatest peace keeper the world has ever known. It has taken Obama and his Democrats a short few years to weaken or destroy most of the diplomatic and military gains of the last hundred years.

"Peter" has some thoughts on Islam and extremists. The “prophet” Mohammad and his armies tried to conquer the world and rid it of all “infidels,” which are all Christians, Jews, Buddhists, Hindus, atheists and everyone else in the world who is not a Muslim. Subsequent Islamic leaders down through the centuries have tried to mimic their prophet by launching military campaigns, invading other countries and slaughtering the “infidels” who lived there.
When the religious leader of Iran publicly pronounces “death to America” he sincerely means it, as do all who follow him. When the ISIS Emir publicly pronounces “death to America” he sincerely means it, as do all who follow him.
They are not being extreme about their religion; they are following the example of their prophet and what is written in their holy book, the Qur’an. The difference between Iran, the Shiites and ISIS, the Sunnis is a squabble about doctrine that is irrelevant to us. It’s like the difference between Catholics and Protestants.
Rather than extremists or radicals a better description for ISIS and Iran is Islamic fundamentalists. They view the rest of the world as a corrupting influence on Muslims everywhere. They appeal to their own, especially their youth, to resist corruption and sin and help to rebuild the Islamic Caliphate of their prophet. That is why so many Muslims living in the west are responding to the siren call of doing battle against evil and earning a place in paradise by killing infidels.
The Sunni sect and the Shiite sect each consider the other to be heretical and no better than infidels. They are each in the process of positioning themselves to stage a prolonged and bloody war against each other for control of an Islamic Caliphate comprising the entire Arabian Peninsula and North Africa. Once their war is settled, if ever, the winner will attempt to expand their territory by invading Europe.
Their hostilities have been going on for centuries, but for many decades it percolated in the background, held in check by the military power of the United States and Europe. But Barack Hussein Obama, as the Muslim raised democrat President of the United States, has withdrawn and reduced our military power, allowing the percolating hatred between Sunnis and Shiites to explode into open warfare. If their war ends in unification the west and the United States will be targeted for invasion and war.
In the meantime both Sunnis and Shiites will not overlook any opportunity to attack their common enemy – everyone who is not a Muslim!
"Legion" has some thoughts on the no-go zones of Paris.
I must admit I had heard of no-go zones, but had no idea they were so prevalent throughout Europe. At first glance it seems somewhat insignificant that Muslims would choose to live with their own kind. You can go to most any city in America and find cultural and/or ethnic areas such as Harlem, Little Cuba, China Town, Little Italy, and on and on. It's also true that crime has been a part of many of these "zones", especially in the early 20th century. (i.e. The Italian mafia, the Jewish mafia, etc.) As hectic and crime ridden as many of those areas became, they knew they were still subject to the laws of the US. But these Islamic no-go zones are a whole nuther ballgame.Muslims don't just want their own neighborhood, they want it totally separate from the laws and regulations of the city, state and country in which they exist. They have their own schools where they teach their kids how to hate and kill, their own barbaric Sharia Law, their own government and of course their own "god". If anyone or anything tries to enter their "zone" they will be surrounded and stoned, beaten, robbed, killed or whatever to make sure they never come back again. The police, fire departments, ambulances, etc won't even enter the zone to protect those being attacked. Is that out of fear, respect for Islam, or political correctness gone crazy?These no-go zones have become hot spots within a democratic, freedom loving country for recruiting by ISIS, al Qaeda and other sicko wings of Islam. Yet, authorities can do, or will do, nothing to stop it. Neither will the so called "moderate Muslims" within these Islamic zoos.Why did Europe allow these havens of hatred to develop? Now that they so vividly realize their mistake, how do they get rid of them without being savagely attacked by Islamic subversives such as ISIS? What's even a bigger question is why do people in America see nothing wrong with conceding small segments of America to people who belong to a religion committed to destroying us? You think it isn't happening in America? May I call your attention to Dearborn MI. There are rumored to be small no-go zones being started, but Dearborn is far and away the largest such zone in the country. Not long ago there was a Christian organization marching in support of a Christian event when a large group of Dearborn Muslims savagely beat and stoned them, even with Dearborn police standing by and watching. They wouldn't even respond to the desperate pleas of the Christian marchers.And while this is going on we have a Muslim loving president who refuses to relate Islamic terrorism with Islam. He just can't bring himself to saying anything against his preferred religion. And yet, there are people who will still vote for him. Unbelievable.Oh yes, and they mass produce, vote, and run for political office (as democrats). The Obama administration is loaded with Muslims, some of which are purported to be members of the Muslim Brotherhood.

"Rook" has some thoughts on leadership.
In recent years we have seen Islamic Jihad terrorism grow exponentially. We have seen Muslims attack and murder soldiers, police and civilians in the United States, Canada, Britain, France, Denmark, Netherlands, Australia and throughout the Middle East. We have seen Al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula (AKA ISIS) conquer huge swaths of territory in Syria and Iraq, soundly defeating the Iraqi Army in the process.
During those same recent years we have seen and heard President Obama repeatedly say that terrorism is on the decline and Al Qaeda has been "decimated." Obama has said we don't need troops in Iraq or Afghanistan and we don't need our military to be as strong as it was in previous years. He says we don't need GITMO or all the intelligence that can be gathered by capturing and interrogating terrorists. He has released GITMO prisoners, only to have many of them show up in new terrorist leadership roles or on the battlefield. We have seen Obama "slow walk" our air power in the fight against ISIS, allowing less than 5% of the sorties per month than our military is capable of in a single day.
We need some answers to get America and Europe back on track in the fight against the spread of Islamic terrorism. Is Obama's Islamic upbringing causing him to sympathize with the enemy and manipulate our foreign policy and military to give advantage to the Islamic terrorists? Or is he and his hand-picked inner circle so inept, incompetent and stupid that they don't understand the consequences of their decisions and actions?
No matter which answer is correct, the consequences for our national security are the same. When our military power is compromised or degraded the entire world is affected. Our allies lose confidence and fail to take decisive action. Our enemies are emboldened and become more aggressive. That is why we have such growth in the number and magnitude of terrorist attacks against the free world. The Muslim terrorists, the Russians and the Chinese smell weakness and fear in the U.S. and our allies. The Muslim terrorists will continue their slaughter; the Russians and Chinese will continue their aggressive and invasive behavior until we regain strong and competent leadership.
