All Praise To Barack Obama – He’s Giving Peace A Chance

GOP war-mongers, the Israeli lobby and Benjamin Netanyahu have a massive amount of very serious explaining to do – if David Stockman’s searing analysis is correct…


I have rarely found anything President Obama has done to be praiseworthy, and believe his domestic policies of Keynesian borrow and spend and incessant statist intervention in capitalist enterprise to be especially deplorable. But finally he has stood up to the War Party——and that could mark a decisive turning point in rolling back Washington’s destructive interventionism and imperial pretensions in the Middle East and, indeed, around the world.

The Iranian nuclear agreement is a decisive refutation of the War Party’s hoary claim that Iran is hell-bent upon obtaining nuclear weapons.

Those who speak lies in public seem to be rapidly losing their previously held falsely-earned “respect”, and that is a very good thing. Nobody can predict when, but it could be sooner than we think that liars will have become completely irrelevant – once again, a very good thing.
