Is Iran deal part of Obama-3rd-term scheme?

In an article published earlier this week, I discuss U.S. House Speaker John Boehner's incredibly late awakening to "the boldness of the Iranians." I highlight the fact that this "belated recognition of ‘the boldness of the Iranians' is not accompanied by an honest acknowledgment of the boldness of Obama's treasonous betrayals of the constitutional self-government of the American people." I go on to suggest that Mr. Boehner has self-interested reasons for this continued blindness. But self-interest isn't the only reason people remain blind to the greatest dangers threatening them

People are unlikely to anticipate cataclysmic events because of the stubborn human tendency to look away from what is too painful to think upon. For example, when it came to the strategic consequences of nuclear weapons, Hudson Institute founder Herman Kahn (said to be one of the real-life people on which the title character in the film "Dr. Strangelove" was based) understood that this emotional barrier to "cold, calculating, unimpassioned" reasoning posed a fatal threat to humanity. He rightly concluded that it had to be overcome. So he became known for "thinking about the unthinkable."

When it comes to physical mayhem and destruction, there's little doubt that the American psyche has gotten past the reluctance to contemplate physically horrible, apocalyptic destruction. Indeed, a wasteland future is now routinely the stuff that entertainment dreams are made on, with plenty of pointless, graphic violence to round out the jaunty nightmare. Survival in such bleak circumstances is not only contemplated, it's more or less celebrated, in a motif of resurrection, both literal (zombies, the living dead) and figurative. So also is the prospect that a desolate absence of conscience and morality may be needed to do so. The result might be summarized in an aphorism: "Even that which kills us, makes us stronger.

" (Machiavellians who see conscience as a source of fatal weakness doubtless think this is an improvement on the madman Nietzsche's adolescent murmurings.)

When Neville Chamberlain came to terms with Hitler at Munich in 1938, there was no need to explain how on earth he could do so, despite gruesome images of Nazi atrocity. Those portraits of evil were not yet hung in the rogue's gallery of human moral perception. But today there is no denying Iran's complicity, support and leadership of groups guilty of terrorist practices as horrendous in their furious religiosity (and hatred of all things Jewish and/or truly Christian) as were the atrocious crimes fueled by the elitist race hatred of the Nazis.

A steady diet of meticulously depicted violence, served up in films and interactive video games, has probably brought some Americans to the point where they react to recorded images of beheadings and other mass atrocities from a place of emotional stupefaction. But if Americans want to think clearly about the Obama faction's role in arming ISIS terror, or their treacherous deal with the moguls of Shiite terrorism in Iran, we must overcome this stupefaction.

The fact that Obama has come to terms with such masterminds of evil ought to produce the sort of revulsion that demands an emetic remedy, lest we die. So does the likelihood that Obama, Hilary Clinton and their friends in the Muslim Brotherhood had a hand in arming the malevolent Islamic State forces Obama's de facto alliance with Iran now purports to fight.

The "experts" and pundits reacting with alarm to Obama's apparently self-contradictory rapprochement with deadly evil speak of his ambition to secure a triumph for his foreign-policy legacy, or his failure to appreciate the real nature of the dangers involved in thinking that Iran can be safely installed as the stabilizing power in the Middle East. Most don't even hint at what may be his most sinister aim, i.e., "to take America down."
