"Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn't pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same, or one day we will spend our sunset years telling our children and our children's children what it was once like in the United States where men were free." - President Ronald Reagan
On Saturday, the Abba jukebox musical “Mamma Mia!” will close on Broadway after 14 years of body-hugging jumpsuits, chest-baring chorus boys and singalongs in the aisles. It will have played 5,773 performances, making it the eighth-longest-running musical in Broadway history, surpassing “Rent” and “Fiddler on the Roof.”
I did not see the Broadway show. The movie was OK. I should that the music was great and the movie was OK. We congratulate the administration for a great run. I understand that the show will go on in London.
The Obama administration has negotiated a deal with Iran that no one has read, specially the side agreements that could be vital to our ability to enforce it.
Where is the media? They are doing "the hope and change" or chasing Donald Trump from one microphone to the other. They're all caught up in the "Carson said this" and "Trump said that" rather than forcing our political class to get serious about this deal.
The media should be screaming and demanding information on how this deal is treating Israel, our ally in the region.
Secretary of State John Kerry has darkly warned Israel to not even think about a military strike on the nuclear facilities of a regime whose leader said just Wednesday that Israel will be wiped out within 25 years. The Israelis are now being told additionally -- Annex III, Section 10 -- that if they attempt just a defensive, nonmilitary cyberattack (a Stuxnet II), the West will help Iran foil it. Ask those 42 senators if they even know about this provision.
The media should be asking these Democrats about the deal.
They can begin with a simple question: Have you read the side agreements? If not, how can you support something that you do not understand?
By the way, how did it turn out when you did not read Obama Care and learned what was in it after the fact?
Next question: Is it true that the U.S. will side with Iran against Israel? If true, do your constituents know that?
We have a perfect storm of a distracted media and an administration that promised transparency but has not delivered.
Is it too much to ask that we have a serious discussion of the bill in the U.S. Senate or House? Is it too much to force legislators to read all of the provisions?
President Obama recently said that this is the biggest vote since the Iraq War in October 2002.
However, there is a big difference.
President Bush did not oppose an open debate. I'm sure all of you recall Democrats like Hillary Clinton and John Kerry openly saying on the Senate floor that Saddam Hussein had WMD and that's why they voted yes.
What a disgrace and lack of transparency. It starts with a media just too protective of President Obama!
