  • The Fake Terror Threat From New START Defenders

    The proponents of President Barack Obama’s New START agreement with Russia are getting more desperate the more votes they lose. The latest sad act comes from the office of Sen. Chris Dodd (D-CT) who catalogs the fantastic claims of his colleagues:

    “Delaying a vote on the New START Treaty into next year is a dangerous and unnecessary gamble with our nation’s security,” said U.S. Senator Jeanne Shaheen (D-NH). … “We simply cannot afford to wait any longer to address the threats posed by a nuclear Iran and by terrorists around the world seeking nuclear materials.”

    “The most dangerous threat to America and to the world is for a terrorist organization or network to obtain a nuclear weapon. Nuclear disarmament is among the most critical steps we must take to keep our nation and future generations safe,” said U.S. Senator Kirsten Gillibrand (D-NY).

    While it is true that terrorists getting a hold of nuclear weapons is a legitimate national security concern, the nuclear weapons most vulnerable to terrorist theft are tactical nuclear weapons. So there’s just one problem with the left’s new terrorist-New START fearmongering:  New START does not cover tactical nuclear weapons!

    Either New START’s defenders are ignorant about the treaty they claim is so necessary for national security, or they are ignorant about nuclear terrorism. Either way, don’t fall for the left’s scare tactics. Know the facts about New START’s 12 fatal flaws.

      The New World Order.

      With all the talk going on about the new world order I started to wonder just what is going on.

      The only country blocking the implementation of a global new world order is the United States Of America.

      That is until now. The Obama administration is pushing America towards a new world order or one world government.

      Why do you think Obama won the Nobel peace prize after only serving 10 days as President of the United States?

      The answer from the Nobel was this : It is not for what he has done that we award Mr. Obama the Nobel peace prize but rather it is for what he will do.

      Former secretary of state Henry Kissinger himself said: We are preparing Obama to head this New World Order.

      The Obama administration has abandoned one of Americas best and loyal allies Israel.

      With Israel surrounded by Muslim nations hell bent on destroying the state of Israel we have to do some hard thinking “ What Is Going On’?

      The truth is these are just a few of the signs that Christ return is Imminent.

      The New world order cannot be implemented until Christ’s chosen people are taken out of the way.

      Second Thessalonians 2:7-8 says : The spirit of evil is already at work, and it will be until he who holds it back is taken out of the way ( Gods Holy Spirit = inside of you ) 8 : Then the man of sin shall be revealed in whom the Lord Jesus will destroy at his return to rule and reign upon this earth for 1,000 years.

      Who or where can you put your trust in these troubled times?

      The answer is in Jesus Christ. Jesus Christ came to this earth 2,000 years ago to pay the price for yours and my sins. If we have this hope within us Gods word says we purify ourselves even as he is pure. 1 John 3:2-3

      We can look up with confidence at his return Titus 2:13

      If you have not made that decision do it soon because it looks very much like closing time for the light.

      Darkness is coming where no man can work. John 9:4

      Go back to your corner. You Heritage Foundation people are clearly out of sync with the American public on this issue.

    3. tim says:

      let me ask these proponents if these read the bill and reasearched the bill and when they claimed to do this…………no urgency for this bill……..take all the time you need to learn about the entire subject………if the obuma just speaks to iran …..iran willl not harm anyone.

    4. Tricia Arizona says:

      These people are in a hurry again…that's got to mean that there's something they don't want We The People to know about. I don't know why we would sign a treaty with Russia…to stand up to Iran? If not for Russia and China, Iran would not be capable of developing a nuclear weapon. Such arrogance coming from people who are supposed to represent the United States of America.

    5. Raymond Falk, Roches says:

      Ronald Reagan proposed a "Star Wars" defense system against nuclear weapons delivered by any enemy, not just Russia. We have the technology now to put in place a defensive system. This treaty does not deal with the defense option. Obama is still in the world of "MAD" mutually assured destruction. Please work on a treaty that defines this defense option and includes the EU and our allies around the world.
