Trump opposes the deal with Iran


Well, here’s some news: Trump Storms Washington to Stop Iran Nuke Deal.

Donald Trump is coming to Washington with a message for Congress and the American people: Stop the nuclear deal with Iran.

And he will be joined by a star-studded galaxy of conservative leaders.

Appearing with the leading Republican presidential contender will be fellow candidate Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, former Gov. Sarah Palin, R-Alaska, political commentator Glenn Beck, radio talk-show host Mark Levin and many others in what promises to be a huge rally to try stop the Iran deal at the Capitol on Wednesday.

“This deal makes war a certainty,” Cruz has charged.

And, as he told WND, “If this deal is consummated, it will make the Obama administration the world’s leading financier of radical Islamic terrorism.”

And with the photo above, you might well be looking at the Repubican nominees for President and Vice President next November. As for Trump himself, the headline on the personal statement by Donald Trump reads: Donald Trump: Amateur hour with the Iran nuclear deal. It’s not long so you can read it all. This is how it starts:

It is hard to believe a president of the United States would actually put his name on an agreement with the terrorist state Iran that is so bad, so poorly constructed and so terribly negotiated that it increases uncertainty and reduces security for America and our allies, including Israel.

It was amateur hour for those charged with striking this deal with Iran, demonstrating to the world, yet again, the total incompetence of our president and politicians. It appears we wanted a deal at any cost rather than following the advice of Ronald Reagan and walking away because “no deal is better than a bad deal.”

The US now has a Leader of the Opposition, and what a difference it makes.

“Beck quipped”

You really do have to wonder about political reporting. This is a brief story on Glenn Beck’s reaction to Donald Trump:

Conservative radio host Glenn Beck called Donald Trump a “son of a bitch,” and panned his performance in Thursday night’s GOP presidential debate.
On his Friday broadcast, Beck argued that the GOP front-runner was a “big loser” in the first showdown between Republican candidates.

He is the most arrogant candidate next to the candidate called Barack Obama,” he said. “I mean, there’s nobody I’ve seen more arrogant than him.

“This guy will be Barack Obama times 10 with enemy lists,” Beck added of Trump’s unpopularity with other Republicans. “[He is] really dangerous.”

Beck admitted that Trump’s inclusion produced entertaining political theater, calling it the “best presidential debate” he has ever seen.

“I could watch this as sports [if] my country wasn’t dying,” Beck quipped.

Trump instantly drew boos on Thursday evening by refusing to rule out a 2016 Oval Office bid as an independent.

My guess is that Glenn wasn’t being lighthearted.

Watching Glenn Beck

Glenn Beck came to Freedomfest and spoke for an hour, without notes but with a tonne of props. Extraordinarily impressive, he just used a series of artefacts to structure a story about the nature of the American dream. The most interesting part was the story of Washington crossing the Delaware. His back to the wall, only 2000 troops left, he wanted to attack the Hessians on the other side of the river. But these were the best soldiers in the world at the time so it was impossible to think how he could get his men to take them on.

It was then that Thomas Paine wrote about the times that try men’s souls. He described how Paine wrote the text on a drumhead, had it printed and sent to Washington. It was this text that had the men get into those boats and fight the battle that would begin the ascent. And the way Beck began the story was to say that the picture no longer exists because it was bombed into oblivion by the British when bombing Germany in 1945!

The painting, it seems, was by a German admirer of America who hated the left revolutionaries of Europe and painted the painting in homage. The painting had never been housed in America but in Germany. It was painted in admiration of the American way of politics. That same small but important admiration of America in Europe was shared by those in France who commissioned the Statue of Liberty. The assembly of the Statue was itself a different story, since it required the skills of a man who had been railroaded into jail during the Civil War, driven into a self-imposed exile, eventually went to work in Cairo for a French contractor, and when he came back home many years later, because of his experience was uniquely able to understand how to assemble the statue because he knew how to read French industrial drawings.

American exceptionalism remains and the home of the idea of freedom that others to this day wish to share.
