Israel And Its
Lobby Lose The Iran Deal All Over Again, In News Of
Damning Wiretaps

" -  You’d think that there would be widespread
outrage over the story everyone’s talking about
today, the

Wall Street Journal scoop
that the Obama
administration spied on Israeli Prime Minister
Netanyahu during the Iran Deal negotiations so as to
counter his efforts to sink it. The wiretaps reveal
that Israeli officials were up to their necks in the
US political process; they “coordinated talking
points with Jewish-American groups against the deal;
and asked undecided lawmakers what it would take to
win their votes, according to current and former
officials familiar with the intercepts.”
The president
approved the wiretaps.
Privately,
Mr. Obama maintained the monitoring of Mr.
Netanyahu on the grounds that it served a
“compelling national security purpose,”
according to current and former U.S. officials.
That’s right;
there’s a compelling national interest in stopping
the Israel lobby.
Many have said
that President Obama lacks spine? Well, it sure
looks like the leak to reporters Adam Entous and
Danny Yadron came from the administration, and it’s
hard to believe that a leak of this magnitude was
not approved by the president. Just when the Israel
lobby thought that it was starting to get back to
business as usual, the Obama administration has
reminded them that something has fundamentally
changed in the U.S.-Israel relationship. Not only
did we beat the lobby and Israel on the Iran Deal,
but: we’re exposing your tactics, and patriotic
Americans are going to be very upset by what they
see...

The transmission is a mess; the muffler's clunking; smoke's seeping out of the dashboard; and you've only had it a week. You took it, grudgingly, as a replacement for that beat-up old Camry that only lasted two months, but the salesman assured you it was a winner. No wonder you're driving onto the lot right now. Before you can even complain, the same salesman's there. He's firm. It's not his fault. You must have done something. Nonetheless, he's ready to offer you a great deal. For an extra 2,000 bucks, you can have the rusted-out Honda Prelude right behind him, the one that, as a matter of fact, has just burst into flames -- and, he assures you, it's a dandy. It may not look so great today, what with the smoking hood and all, but it's a vehicle for the ages.
Would you buy a used car from this man? (Hint…

As Easter was
celebrated in the US and UK with, for believers, the
message of hope, Fallujah, the region and much of
the country is again under siege, not this time by
US mass murderers, but by the US proxy government’s
militias armed with US delivered weapons. In 2003, a
month into the invasion, Easter Day fell on the same
day as this year, 20th April, as Iraqis of all
denominations and none, died were incarcerated,
tortured, found with their heads drilled, or no
heads, thrown on garbage piles. Easter Day
the following year, 2004 fell on Sund…
