… This Supposed ” Iran Agreement ” is Nuts [#policy debate]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Monday,November 28th,2016

.. I have had quite some time to think about this proposed ” Iran Nuclear Agreement . ” I have thought about both the policy and the process , and it is disgusting ..

.. the idea of the policy is outrageous . What in the hell are the ObamaCraps thinking ? Do they really expect that this mess will actually stop the mullahs in Qum from getting the BomB? If they do , then they have to be crazy ..

.. at least some adults in the room [so to speak] are thinking about some decent minimum that should be required of Iran in any agreement . These folks are meeting under the aegis of the Washington Institute for Near East Policy , and they and the Institute agree strongly on this baseline …

.. [h/t — WashingtonInstitute.org]..

We are united in our view that to maximize its potential for deterring and dissuading Iran from building a nuclear weapon, the emerging nuclear agreement must – in addition to its existing provisions – provide the following :
1. Monitoring and Verification: The inspectors of the International Atomic Energy Agency (the “IAEA”) charged with monitoring compliance with the agreement must have timely and effective access to any sites in Iran they need to visit in order to verify Iran’s compliance with the agreement. This must include military (including IRGC) and other sensitive facilities. Iran must not be able to deny or delay timely access to any site anywhere in the country that the inspectors need to visit in order to carry out their responsibilities.
2. Possible Military Dimensions: The IAEA inspectors must be able, in a timely and effective manner, to take samples, to interview scientists and government officials, to inspect sites, and to review and copy documents as required for their investigation of Iran’s past and any ongoing nuclear weaponization activities (“Possible Military Dimensions” or “PMD”). This work needs to be accomplished before any significant sanctions relief.
3. Advanced Centrifuges: The agreement must establish strict limits on advanced centrifuge R&D, testing, and deployment in the first ten years, and preclude the rapid technical upgrade and expansion of Iran’s enrichment capacity after the initial ten-year period. The goal is to push back Iran’s deployment of advanced centrifuges as long as possible, and ensure that any such deployment occurs at a measured, incremental pace consonant with a peaceful nuclear program.
4. Sanctions Relief: Relief must be based on Iran’s performance of its obligations. Suspension or lifting of the most significant sanctions must not occur until the IAEA confirms that Iran has taken the key steps required to come into compliance with the agreement. Non-nuclear sanctions (such as for terrorism) must remain in effect and be vigorously enforced.
5. Consequences of Violations: The agreement must include a timely and effective mechanism to re-impose sanctions automatically if Iran is found to be in violation of the agreement, including by denying or delaying IAEA access. In addition, the United States must itself articulate the serious consequences Iran will face in that event.

… DeFace the Nation : on Race Relations …

Posted by paulfromwloh on Sunday,April 20th,2014

.. you would think that the LameStream media should and could have found better commentators to deal with this subject material . Especially Bob Schieffer . He is a better commentator than that …

.. now this ..

.. there is much to celebrate on the 50th anniversary of the Civil Rights Act . Yet many black activists and leaders in the black community act and debate as if they are still in the depths of the civil rights struggle . What a disgrace . Especially the way they treat black conservatives . One would think and figure that the black community would easily be able to handle the intellectual rigor and chops of more than one viewpoint on many , many issues …

.. but nooooo ! …. they act to stamp out many black conservatives , and ignore some of the very best wordsmiths among them , such as retired neurosurgeon Dr. Benjamin Carson and economist Dr. Thomas Sowell ..

.. so , who do they choose to debate the issue ??!? …

.. Micheal Eric Dyson and Evan Wolfson … puke ! …

.. these idiots are trying to bring in so – called ” same – sex marriage ” into the equation alongside race relations . It has no place being there , and is immoral and is unnatural as hell …

… Ben Shapiro is Right [the Faculty Lounge] …

Posted by paulfromwloh on Friday,March 14th,2014

.. Obama is in Fantasyland . His debates are with fellow faculty . He is acting as if the world is the way that he wants it to be , not the way it really is . Also , the Washington ComPost is right .

.. I wish that Obama would quit , and take Biden with him . At least John Boehner would be a realist about the world . Ying and Yang have their heads in the clouds . Meanwhile , people are dying , and many other millions are being needlessly put at risk because of their “faculty lounge” stupidity …

… Watch a Lesson in Con Law …

Posted by paulfromwloh on Wednesday,February 19th,2014

.. no , not con law , as in criminal law .

.. no , con law , as in constitutional law .

.. U.S. Senator Mike Lee [R-Ut] is a dandy example of a fine lawyer . He has his own top – flight backgroud , at [ ] , and challenged some who I believed was a fine U.S. Senator (Robert Bennett) in the GOP primary convention . Doing that is not easy , but in Utah , it is possible and is doable . Lee did it , and eventually will succeed Orrin Hatch as the senior senator .

.. Xavier Becerra is a fairly decent congresscritter , but he is out of his league when it comes to dealing in con law . Mike Lee ‘ s upbringing [his father was former Reagan era Solicitor General Rex Lee] and his parentage gives him a big leg up . Watch him in action , taking Becerra apart on the unconstitutionality of POTUS ‘ acts …
