Insanity - The Platform Of The Democratic Party

Tuesday, September 17, 2019

Once upon a time an arrogant, pompous man who fancied himself as America’s Foreign Minister rather than Secretary of State, John Kerry, agreed to a terrible deal with Iran in the closing days of the Obama administration. By-passing the Constitutional process for treaties, Lord Kerry agreed to a deal which allowed Iran to continue its nuclear weapons program with only self-inspection and no consequences if they violated the terms of the signed agreement.

So as to announce some kind of agreement, the Obama administration released Iranian financial assets frozen since the 1970s when Iran held our embassy personnel hostage. A payment of $1.7 billion in non-US currency was made to sweeten the deal. Four hundred million dollars in various currencies was then delivered on pallets the same day our naval personnel who were being held hostages were released by Iran (Los Angeles Times, Sept 7, 2016). In spite of Kerry admitting earlier that some of this money could be used for terrorism, the Obama administration, desperate for a deal with Iran, any deal, went ahead anyway giving the mullahs millions of dollars (CNN, January 21, 2016).

It has been speculated some of this money has been used to fund terrorism including almost daily rockets attacks against Israeli citizens by the Iranian backed Hezbollah. And just recently the Iranian financed Houthi terrorists in Yemen claimed responsibility for the drone attack that destroyed a Saudi oil refinery. This latest attack has cut Saudi oil production in half. Europe depends heavily on Saudi oil now and this causes them serious problems which negatively affects the world economy.

Fortunately we are now energy independent including exporting oil ourselves for the first time since 1975. Thanks to extensive exploration and modern techniques for securing oil and natural gas, off shore drilling and newly discovered wells, we can be independent of OPEC. And it was just announced the Keystone XL Pipeline would bring nearly a million barrels of Canadian oil a day to America making us further secure and helping to grow out already robust economy. It’s significant to say that Democrats opposed all of the above.

We’ve heard  Democrat presidential candidates’ plans to do away with fossil fuel energy production. How irresponsible and dangerous that is in a world these Democrats don’t seem to understand. Where would we be now if they were in power? What a disaster their lack of understanding and policies do and could bring in the future.

One Democrat who polls under one percent in Real Clear Politics averages, billionaire Tom Steyer, appears to have finagled his way into the next debate. He is fanatically obsessed with two things-stopping the Keystone Pipeline and impeaching President Trump. Even with all that is happening in the world, his ideas, crazy as they may seem, will be thrust into the national debate.

That’s Einstein’s definition of insanity-doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results. That’s also the platform of the Democrat Party.
