AP: Leaked document suggests Iran could ramp up uranium enrichment before nuclear deal expires

The much-heralded Iran nuclear deal pushed by the Obama administration – a deal that handed over billions of American taxpayer dollars to a nation with a long history of human-rights offenses – will not hold water with Tehran long before it’s set to expire. The Associated Press has the scoop: Key restrictions on Iran's nuclear program imposed under an internationally negotiated deal will start to ease years before the 15-year accord expires, advancing Tehran's ability to build a bomb even before the end of the pact, according to a document obtained Monday by The Associated Press. The confidential document is the only text linked to last ...

Senator: Nuclear deal will allow Iran to ‘industrialize’ its nuclear-enrichment capability

Senate Foreign Relations Committee Chairman Sen. Bob Corker (R-Tenn.) Saturday released a statement lambasting the president's Iran nuclear agreement and the U.S. lifting sanctions on Iran and its terror-entrenched government with its litany of human-rights violations. The Chattanooga Times Free Press has the inside story: "I opposed this flawed agreement, and fear its implementation shifts the leverage to Iran as sanctions are lifted in exchange for only limited and temporary restrictions, allowing Iran to industrialize its nuclear enrichment capability after a decade," Corker said ... Corker was co-author of the Iran Nuclear Agreement Review ...

Gingrich: The U.S. is losing the war with radical Islamists

At the Iowa Freedom Summit, which Tea Party Patriots helped sponsor, former Speaker of the House and presidential candidate Newt Gingrich had some frank words about the need to finally acknowledge who the U.S.’s “real enemies are.” “There is one common pattern occurring everywhere across the planet,” said Gingrich, “and that is radical Islamists who hate our civilization, are prepared to cut off our heads, and are determined to impose their religion by force.” The whole speech is about 20 minutes, but it’s definitely worth a watch.

Fiscal cliff legislation taxes the rich – unless they have buddies in Congress

In the fiscal cliff fight, proponents of big government said they wanted to raise taxes on the wealthy for purposes of deficit reduction and “fairness.” As the dust settles, we see it’s anything but fair. First, as Media Research Center’s Dan Joseph noted on Facebook, the deficit reduction aspects of taxing the “rich” are bogus, though there is some sliver of good news to be seen: So, as was expected, the Democrats will get tax hikes, the SOLE purpose of which are to stick it to the "wealthy" while making everyone else FEEL better about having STUCK it to them. One development that I find fascinating, however, was how the Democrats ...

Gingrich/Romney race not a failure of Tea Party

By Mark Petrina Jay Bookman published a blog claiming a Gingrich/Romney race represents failure of the tea party because they are both establishment politicians. Bookman is wrong Herman Cain was a Tea Party favorite who dropped out because of the dirty tricks of a corrupt, partisan media . Romney is a contender because the "Establishment" is still very powerful. The media is very powerful, but despises the Tea Party, so we are fighting on lots of fronts. Gingrich, regardless of his baggage, is talking the Tea Party game more effectively and strongly than anybody else. He is the most aggressive anti-Obama, and has lots of appealing ideas. That ...
