Hugh Hewitt: Who’s to Blame in Tensions With Iran?

The Trump administration deserves some credit for seeing Iran clearly.

President Obama did not. His efforts to lure Ayatollah Khomeini into changing the behavior of his rogue regime never had a chance because it began from the premise that appeasement works, but appeasement never does work.

Not with Iran. Not with Russia and the famous “reset” button. And not in the 1994 deal with North Korea.

The appeasement policies of Obama have been abandoned. Good!

Iran is dangerously close to provoking a conflict—and most U.S. media outlets are far behind the news curve.

President Trump has been ably served by National Security Advisor John Bolton—as well as Secretary of State Mike Pompeo. Both rightly believe that Iran was, is and will remain a rogue regime as long as the radical theocrats remain in power.

It’s not about Bolton or Pompeo.

It’s about the mullahs in Tehran. It has been since 1979.

Albert Mohler: Abortion May Well Be Before the Supreme Court Soon

The intensity of the abortion debate in the United States has reached a new level as Alabama’s governor, Kay Ivey, has signed a bill banning virtually all abortion in the state.

The overwhelming national response indicates that we have now reached a new moment in America’s conflict between the powerful forces for abortion and powerful forces against abortion.

It would not be an exaggeration to say that the map of America when you look at the question of abortion reflects an intensity and a polarization hauntingly like the map of the United States before the Civil War.

In recent decades, the pro-life movement has sought to chip away the logic of Roe v. Wade. There’s no “chipping away” here: Alabama’s move is a direct challenge to Roe.

Stay tuned.

One way or another, the issue of abortion may well be before the Supreme Court, and very soon.

Michael Medved: A “One State Solution” Means No Safe Haven

Representative Rashida Tlaib, Democrat of Michigan, says “I want a safe haven for Jews.”

The question she hasn’t been asked and cannot answer is: where do you think that “safe haven” should be? She obviously doesn’t think it should be in Israel, the ancestral home of the Jewish people, since she favors the so-called “One State Solution”, meaning the end of any Jewish State in the Middle East.

The idea that any Arab Palestinian state could provide a “safe haven” for Jews or other non-Muslims is ridiculous, considering the terrible record in treatment of Jews, Christians and other minorities in all of the 22 existing Arab Muslim states.

If her Democratic colleagues continue to defend and excuse Tlaib’s incoherent extremism, then all voters who care about Israel’s security should work to end the Democratic House majority that shamelessly sanctions extremism.

Michael Medved: Obsessive Bigotry Threatens the Hater, Along With the Hated

Those in the grip of an obsessive, irrational hatred can’t keep themselves from expressing it, even when they damage their own interests in the process.

For Louis Farrakhan, recently kicked off of Facebook for his bigotry, it clearly hurt him to denounce “satanic Jews” to a Catholic congregation in his latest unhinged diatribe.

For Rashida Tlaib, saying she always gets “kind of a calming feeling” when she thinks of the Holocaust, and suggesting that Palestinians created a “safe haven” for Jews in the Middle East, obviously undermined her already shaky position with her House colleagues. For Tlaib, she wasn’t even asked about the Holocaust, but brought it up in the context of her one-state opposition to any Jewish homeland, anywhere on earth.

Irrational anti-Semitic outbursts not only threaten Jewish people, but simultaneously menace the blighted obsessives who can’t stop themselves from uttering them.
