Shameful Corker "Compromise" is a Triumph for the Obama Administration's Iran Negotiations Strategy

Tuesday a much ballyhooed "compromise" regarding S.615, "Iran Nuclear Agreement Review Act of 2015" was unanimously agreed upon within the Senate Foreign Relations Committee. Independent and Washington Post assessments of critical aspects of the lauded compromise brokered by Republican Senate Foreign Relations Committee Chairman Bob Corker and Democrat Ben Cardin helped eliminate my own cautious optimism about what in fact transpired.

Accordingly, the Corker-Cardin compromise validates the Obama Administration's negotiations strategy. That "strategy" is contrary to almost all past arms control agreements of consequence, which have been Senate Advice and Consent Treaties, whose approval requires a 2/3 vote in the Senate. The Obama Administration, in contrast, is hell-bent on giving legitimacy to Iran's uranium enrichment program, and waiving economic sanctions on Iran, while not submitting the fruits of its masterful negotiations to a Congressional vote for initial approval, prior to implementing the agreement. These developments should be a tocsin of looming calamity given that the framework fiasco for this pending deal includes an inadequate/"hotly contested" inspections process, while also fully ignoring Iran's ballistic missile and nuclear weaponization programs. [Go here for the complete story...]

Fifty Shades of Conservatives

What is striking about the 2016 presidential election cycle is the subtle differences among the Republican presidential candidates. You might say we have ten, twenty or possibly even fifty shades of conservatives - either announced as candidates, unannounced but possibly going to announce as candidates, or simply sitting on the sidelines, watching and wondering if they will join in the action. Whatever the number, there is no doubt the 2016 presidential election season is starting off on an interesting note. Let's look at some of the subtle, yet real differences, among the announced and potential Republican hopefuls. [Go here for a complete analysis...]

The Blueprint for a GOP Landslide Victory in 2016

The GOP needs a bold positive message that will excite middle class Americans. Here is the three-part plan that guarantees a presidential landslide in 2016. We need to guarantee a job for every American, NOT a welfare check. Americans want two things: a job and a system that is fair. Why would anyone go to work, if others get to stay home, sleep late, watch “Dr. Phil,” play with their kids, and collect welfare and food stamps? The current system is unfair and it’s leading to the decline and eventual collapse of U.S. economy. The next GOP president needs to promise "a job in every pot." He or she must declare "I am the jobs president. I’m going to get America working again come hell or high water. I will guarantee every American a job over the next four years. PERIOD. And if I don't deliver, fire me." [more...]

Government's Next Tax Target - Your Bank Account

Tax Day, April 15, reminds us of just how overtaxed we have become and how a circular cage of taxes on earning, spending, investing and saving is being created to snare us. If you earn money to live on, you face income taxes nationally as well as from 41 of the 50 states. If you buy anything, you face sales taxes in all but five states – and some local sales taxes in those five. In D.C., politicians now talk enthusiastically about imposing a national European-style sales tax, an easily-increased Value-Added Tax (VAT) to soak both companies and consumers. If you invest what little money you have left after paying all your other taxes, get ready to pay capital gains taxes, which the current administration aims to increase. [more...]

Tax Day - It's Not What You Make, It's What You Keep

Your U.S. Federal taxes are due. The average work week is over 40 hours now, and the IRS has decided to veer from its job description and play the role of U.S. job creator as well, after requesting funds for 9,000 new positions that would work to enforce Obamacare regulations. These additional jobs will count as added Gross Domestic Product (GDP), which means more people working on taking rather than making something useful like a service or product, which means someone - you, a U.S. citizen - will be taking on the burden of financially covering the expenses via heightened taxes. Each year the IRS makes changes to the tax code, and this year is no exception. One out of every four businesses will be affected by the Affordable Care Act. For those businesses or individuals that do not offer private insurance, market insurance, or any type of qualifying insurance at all, they will be required to pay the dreaded fine. However, despite proposals for ongoing increased costs, there are ways to bypass and cash in on the ultimate tax refund. [more...]

NBC's 'American Odyssey' - Anti-Corporate and Anti-Free Speech

NBC has launched a new television series called "American Odyssey," which is based on the premise that an American company that has been funding Islamist terrorist groups is covering up the scandal by using private military contractors who are ready and willing to attack U.S. soldiers. "American Odyssey" is in no way conservative in nature or in substance. The show's creators have indicated that they view the program as a means in which to exhibit their belief that the Citizens United case and U.S. business entities are sources of evil in the modern world. Citizens United is the Supreme Court decision that strengthened free speech in the form of campaign finance and allowed corporations, non-profits, and other entities to participate in the financial support of political candidates.

States Resort to Suspending Licenses in Effort to Collect Student Debt

The student loan bubble has ripened to such an extent that over 7 million debtors were in default as of mid-2014 and they're holding on to over $100 billion in outstanding debt. Consequently, both private and federal lenders are exploring a variety of tactics to collect outstanding payments. Those payments, after all, represent forecasted revenues that never arrived. One such tactic employed by the Education Department is engaging private debt collectors to bring in borrowed money. While they often rely on unethical (and illegal) pressure tactics to coerce borrowers to start paying, these glorified bounty hunters have earned over $1.6 billion in commissions and bonuses from 2010 – 2013. Still, when engaging debt collectors just doesn’t cut it, many states resort to other, more punitive means. 22 States have passed litigation that permits them to suspend professional and/or driver's licenses of student loan defaulters.

Apple CEO is Hypocrite

The religious freedom act in Indiana has been big news in America recently. Apple CEO Tim Cook was all "fired up" by Indiana's new law. Yet Apple makes billions of dollars selling its products in Russia where gays have no rights; and in Muslim countries like Bahrain, United Arab Emirates, Kuwait and Saudi Arabia, where gays are murdered for their sexual preference; and in China where no one has any civil or human rights. Why doesn't Apple stop selling iPhones and iPads in those countries? Why doesn't Apple close its Moscow store immediately? Hypocrites. [more...]

Tiger Woods - Bad Attitude is Bad for Business

Sunday’s Masters Golf Tournament was a win for the masses. I find that society has grown so sick of self-absorbed athletes, and that is why Jordan Spieth’s victory (a humble, 21-year-old who carried each swing towards victory with class and grace) was the beginning of a new era. This young professional athlete has a long and far-reaching career ahead of him. There is much to be experienced and learned about living in the limelight, for life proves that it is as much about process as it is about results. This also proves true in regards to building one’s career. Businesses are a team operation. As Tiger Woods illustrated by his unsportsmanlike behavior, one bad sport is a bad hire and is therefore also bad for business. As a leading authority on buying, selling and fixing businesses and the best-selling author of "Sell Your Business for More than It’s Worth," my experience and expertise has repeatedly shown me that businesses owned by people servicing a WHY that is bigger than themselves are the ones that excel and become the greatest successes. If Tiger Woods continues his bad behavior, he will not only be kicked off the greens, but will lose the green in the process. [more...]


Mr. President, you say we have been handling Cuba the same way for 50 years and it has changed nothing. You’re right, I agree! They still oppress their people. The Castro brothers are still vicious dictators; they still imprison and torture political prisoners. Their one-percenters are the Castro brothers. They still imprison homosexuals (so much for human rights.) But none of those things bother you. And you think that if we just lighten up and start doing business with them again all that will change? Don't you think if they really wanted freedom for their people they would have installed, or allowed to have elected, a democratic government? What do you think normalizing relations with an oppressive, communist, human rights offending government will do for them, and for that matter, us? Raul Castro wants money and an apology for how we have treated them over the years and I have a sneaky suspicion, Mr. President, that you're trying to figure out how to do that! I’ll tell you what, you get them to apologize for the human rights violations they have committed against their people since they took over and you can tell them, well, nothing. We did nothing wrong.

Egyptian Grand Mufti Attacks Pamela Geller's Bus Ads

Veteran journalist and nonpareil activist gadfly Pamela Geller's current educational bus advertisement campaign introduces the U.S. masses to Islamic Jew-hatred and its Koranic origins.  The ads feature an iconic image of ex-Mufti of Jerusalem Hajj Amin el-Husseini, meeting with his World War II ally, Nazi dictator Adolph Hitler. The doctrinal and historical veracity of Geller's campaign can be readily established, as I will show.

The photo highlighted in Pamela Geller's bus ads captures the ugly historical nexus between Nazi and Islamic Jew-hatred - the latter embodied by Hajj Amin el-Husseini. November 2013, I released the first detailed, textual analysis of el-Husseini's canonical Islamic antisemitism, The Mufti's Islamic Jew-Hatred: What the Nazis Learned from the "Muslim Pope."

During 1938, a booklet Muhammad Sabri edited, "Islam, Judentum, Bolschewismus (Islam, Jewry, Bolshevism)," was published in Berlin including Hajj Amin el-Husseini’s 1937 declaration - also deemed by some as a "fatwa" - appealing to the worldwide Muslim umma (community). El-Husseini's declaration was extracted and reprinted, separately, by the Nazi regime as "Islam und Judentum (Islam and Jewry)," and distributed to Muslim SS units in Bosnia, Croatia, and the Soviet Union.  [Go here for the complete story...]

Boston Marathon Jihad Murderer Tsarnaev Guilty

The guilty verdict came as no surprise to anyone, least of all Dzhokhar Tsarnaev’s defense attorney, Judy Clarke, who told the court last month, "It was him." Tsarnaev could now face the death penalty, and it would be richly deserved, given the fact that he and his brother deliberately placed a bomb filled with nails behind a row of children, hoping to maximize the number of people they murdered, and subjected eight-year-old Martin Richard to a gruesome and excruciatingly painful death.

Iran "Framework" Fiasco - John Quincy Adams Knew Jihad; John Kerry Does Not

Secretary of State John Kerry’s willful ignorance of jihad doctrine - Islam's permanent "international relations law" - and his bowdlerized understanding of Islam in general, stand in stark contrast to the studied, frank wisdom of the great U.S. statesman, John Quincy Adams. John Quincy Adams's thoughtful, candid ruminations (published in 1830) should be required reading for all contemporary U.S. diplomats and politicians, whose current self-destructive inadequacies - bereft of Old Man Eloquent's timeless Islamic insights - are painfully manifest every day. [more...]

Will it Be a Bush-Clinton Race in 2016?

If you listen to many in the media, Jeb Bush and Hillary Clinton are the presumed presidential nominees for the 2016 presidential race.  They are the so-called leaders – well funded, well connected, and well on their way to their presumed nominations.  But, is that really true? Years ago, I wrote The Ten Laws for Winning Presidential Elections.  They are still true today.  One of the Ten Laws is the "Law of the Dominant Issue."  The dominant issue deals directly with the fundamentals: What’s happening in America?  What do American voters believe?  Is America on the right track?  What concerns most Americans? Fundamentals are largely out of the control of candidates and their campaigns.  Even a sitting president generally can’t impact the fundamentals very much, if at all.  Yet, the fundamentals and the dominant issue will largely impact who will win the election. [more...]

Build Your Business to Sell

Entrepreneurs dream of the day they can call themselves business owners. They want to grow their ideas into tangible results, be their own boss and obtain financial freedom. However, the reality is that many of these individuals end up creating another job for themselves in which to work, rather than a business that works for them. The biggest mistake business owners make is that they do not plan their exit strategy. Most business owners decide to sell upon the occurrence of a catastrophic event, in which case their business is typically trending downward. The BEST time to sell is when your company is thriving, not dying. [more...]

They Can Only Win By Lying

It seems like the party of "the people" can only win by lying to "the people." Senator Harry Reid admitted that he lied to help Mr. Obama win. He, at this point, is the most honorable man in the Democrat party. You see he is the ONLY Democrat to really come out after being caught and basically say, yup, I did it and I got what I wanted, so sue me. He knew the information on Mitt Romney was false. There was no "insider" at Romney’s company. But he and the rest of the Democrats were okay with lying about it. The now ever-famous and haunting words, "If you like your doctor, you can keep your doctor" was clearly a LIE! "If you like your plan, you can keep your plan" - also a LIE. Then he tried to "clarify" with "What I meant was, if it fit our parameters," yet another LIE! [more...]

Defamation Trial for HBO's Bryant Gumbel

A trial is set to begin on April 13th, which has implications for the credibility of the American media and sports news figures. HBO is the defendant in a defamation lawsuit, which is headed to trial in federal court, over a 2008 episode of "Real Sports with Bryant Gumbel."

During a segment of Gumbel’s show, it was reported that a sporting equipment maker, Mitre Sports International, manufactured soccer balls using child labor. Mitre makes the exclusive soccer ball of the English Premier League as well as the one used in Major League Soccer. The fundamental question in this particular legal case is whether Gumbel's cable television sports show featured a phony investigative report involving exploited child workers. The segment in question, titled "Childhood Lost," depicts children stitching soccer balls in India for 5 cents per hour or less. Mitre filed the lawsuit in the same year that the broadcast aired. The suit asks for tens of millions of dollars in damages, claiming that the segment was a "hoax" and further asserting that the content of the report was "fabricated" or "dramatized." [more...]
