âItâs a deal worse than even we imagined possible,â said Weekly Standard editor William Kristol. âItâs a deal that gives the Iranian regime $140 billion in return for âŠ effectively nothing: no dismantlement of Iranâs nuclear program, no anytime/anywhere inspections, no curbs on Iranâs ballistic missile program, no maintenance of the arms embargo, no halt to Iranâs sponsorship of terror.â
Michael Rubin, a former Pentagon official "Thereâs no reason it needed to be paid now. After all, successive administrations..., have delayed payments so as to avoid funding Iranian terrorism," Rubin said. "Likewise, if the United States freezes accounts linked to al Qaeda or Hamas, releasing it and saying, âItâs their money anyway,â would not be a tenable explanation.."
The Iranians have been clear that they "perceived the payment to be a ransom" despite the administrationâs protestations, Rubin explained. "Not only has the delivery of the millions of dollars been perceived as a ransom, provided as an incentive to seize more hostages âŠ. but because the money was delivered in cash the payment bolstered the strength of the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps and augmented its ability to finance and conduct terrorism," he said

Obama sent 1.7 billion in cash to our enemy, Iran
Obam took billions that should have gone to infrastructure and used it to pay off political cronies who in turn sent money to the DNC

okie-dokie but the headline reads,

and you somehow don't think that was good news. Fine
It is low supply not high demand that raises prices. A few years back you could walk out of a Wal-Matt with a $50 VCR. Probably canât even get them that cheap in EBay. If something is in high demand then more manufacturers will want a piece of the action and the competition will drive the price down and the quality up.
This is no different than than candidate Trump and his position on LBGTQ
The only difference is that unlike the Democrats he has not adopted the shove down your throat attitude which is seen for instance in the so called Equality Act. He has said he would veto it if it makes it to his desk.

So if someone steals your car and is caught, should the State punish them?. To do so is pushing the State morality on the perpetrator What is your neighbor's wife kills her husband because she wants to have an affair? Should the State push their morality on her by punishing her? What if a couple teenagers high on drugs beat you to a bloody pulp just for the fun of it? Should the. State push their morality on them and send them to jail for assault? What someone steals your identity and clears out your bank account. If they are caught should the State push their morality on them by making the pay you back and sending them to jail?
Really we have a conspiracy with not only Russians/U.S. collusion but all the satellite manufacturers who had to reengineer and reprogram their satellites once they discovered it wasnât orbiting around a round sphere.
Sorry, Wstcher, IMO, your referenced book would be a huge waste of time. If thatâs what you want to believe then have at it.
It is NOT the job of the government to pay for the needs of pregnant (or any other) woman. In case you didn't know, Jim, there is a dedicated government agency whose job it is to get child support from the real people responsible, the parents.
By the logic of one of your quotes, if a person is a financial burden or emotional difficulty then it is okay to have them murdered, you think that is good policy too?
The real question Jim is do you believe God to be true or are you going follow your liberal liars?
The fathers shall not be put to death for the children, neither shall the children be put to death for the fathers: every man shall be put to death for his own sin

Thanks Christopher, it is always good I suppose to replace science with science fiction. As long as you can make your own narrative anything can be "proved"
The fact that there is false information on the internet does not take away from the fact that there is true information. There is false information in the Bible (Satan's lies to Eve, Job's "friends" evaluation of him, Naboth's accusers, the 400 lying prophets, Gahazi's story to Naaman, Sanballat's words about Nehemiah, the Sanhedrin lies about our Lord, etc.) that does not mean the truth found there is not reliable.
