Iran

With friends like US, who needs enemies?

Little mention has been made in the media about John Kerry’s attempt to smooth over Obama’s political blunder when he failed to participate, or send a representative to participate, in France’s massive anti-terror march a little more than a week ago in Paris. 

Another Victory for Iran – Fewer Sanctions, More Time.

Right track?  Wrong track?  The November 24, 2014 deadline has come and gone.  As in the once very popular game of Monopoly, Iran drew another ‘get out of jail free’ card and the right to ‘return to Go’ - to go ahead with seven more months of continuing nuclear advancement. That’s what U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry and five other nations received for all the time and effort invested in nuclear negotiations however Kerry did receive a slap in the face from Iran’s Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei.  Before the talks, Khamenei is reported to have opined that the U.S.

Left-Wingers Succeed In Splitting Israel’s Coalition

It is official.  The current government in Israel is dissolving.  An early election has been set for March 2015.  As one of the tens of millions of Evangelical Christians who stand fervently with Israel and her citizens, it brings much relief to finally see Prime Minister Netanyahu fire the two leading left-wing ministers, who continually and loudly oppose him, in his cabinet – Finance Minister Yair Lapid and Justice Minister Tzipi Livni.  These two have appeared to want their names in the headlines more than establishing unity within the coalition.  The Prime Minister’s firing of Lapi and Livni sends a loud and clear message that he is more determined to tackle issues facing Israel than in pacifying media seekers within his coalition.

Has Obama Cut a Shady Deal with Iran’s Ayatollah Kahmenei?

President Obama, No Biblical Confirmation of Palestinian State on Israeli Soil

The land was deeded to Israel in an eternal covenant by the eternal G-d, the G-d of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob.  When will the Christian nation of America with its professed Christian president stop pushing Israel in a direction that is contrary to G-d’s Word?  Nothing in G-d’s Word says there will ever be a Palestinian state on Israeli soil.  Seeking an answer to the above question, I forwarded a letter to President Barak Obama and I’d like to share that letter with those who follow my writings.  The fact is that the Eternal

G-d of the universe made an eternal covenant with Israel for the land of Israel and not with the Palestinians. 

 

American Support for Israel - A complicated matter?

A retired Army General and former high ranking official in the Obama Administration, recently spoke at a well-known American university. During the questions following his remarks he was asked by a student why “25% of US Foreign Aid goes to Israel.” The General stumbled around and gave no real answer other than “It’s complicated.”

What he did not say was that the premise of the question was wrong to start with because the percentage of US Foreign Aid to Israel is nowhere near 25%.

What To Expect In 2014: Obamacare, Immigration Reform, Budget Battles & More

Obamacare, Medicaid & Medicare

In 2014, an expansion of Medicaid, with an increased cost burden for taxpayers, is expected. This is according to the Kaiser Family Foundation which has also projected Obamacare adding another 20 millionnew Medicaid dependents. It is estimated this expansion will add an average of 13% in costs to state budgets in 2014 alone.

The health insurance premium “sticker shock” will continue in 2014 as the reality of higher premiums really hits home. Most Americans, but especially the young and healthy, will have to come to grips with health insurance premium increases anywhere between 50% and 150%. And, to make matters worse, employers will continue to cut full-time workers back to part-time by reducing employees’ hours per week from 40 to 29 or less. This is being done to minimize the number of employees qualifying for the expensive Obamacare-compliant coverage.

Because businesses must pay more to purchase Obamacare-compliant plans, remaining employer-based health insurance policies will have higher out-of-pocket costs for employees, including higher co-pays and deductibles.

A More Dangerous World

The United States struck a surprising nuclear deal with Iran last week. The agreement commits Iran to halt its nuclear activites for six months in exchange for limited and gradual sanctions relief. U.S. President Barack Obama hailed the deal as putting substantial limitations on the Iranian nuclear program which the U.S. and its allies have feared could lead to nuclear weapons capabilities. He stated, "For the first time in a decade we have halted the progress of the Iranian nuclear program."
