As reported by Arutz Sheva (Israel National News), “Iran’s Revolutionary Guard opened the doors of a secret underground missile base to state TV, showing off medium- and long-range missiles, The Associated Press (AP) reported Wednesday. The station aired footage of long tunnels with ready-to-fire missiles on the back of trucks, according to AP.
FBI FURY: OBAMA SABOTAGING HILLARY INVESTIGATION http://t.co/e3VwM8kVAc— DRUDGE REPORT (@DRUDGE_REPORT) October 16, 2015
Federal agents were still cataloging the classified information from Hillary Rodham Clinton’s personal email server last week when President Obama went on television and played down the matter....
Investigators have not reached any conclusions about whether the information on the server had been compromised or whether to recommend charges, according to the law enforcement officials. But to investigators, it sounded as if Mr. Obama had already decided the answers to their questions and cleared anyone involved of wrongdoing.
The White House quickly backed off the president’s remarks and said Mr. Obama was not trying to influence the investigation. But his comments spread quickly, raising the ire of officials who saw an instance of the president trying to influence the outcome of a continuing investigation — and not for the first time.

A new poll shows Donald Trump and Ben Carson far ahead of the rest of the GOP presidential field, but that’s not what should make establishment Republicans so nervous…
…It’s whom the Trump and Carson supporters would back if either candidate dropped out of the race.
In a Fox News poll released Tuesday, Trump and Carson dominated the competition, with 24% and 23%, respectively. Senator Ted Cruz came in third, with Senator Marco Rubio and former Governor Jeb Bush rounding out the top five.
Carson was the Republican named most often as a second choice candidate, followed by Trump and Rubio, with Carly Fiorina in fourth and Senator Cruz in fifth.
1. Webb is the most conservative Dem, but not user friendly. He makes good points but not with that crowd. No room for him in his dogmatic party. No big gains for him of tonight.
2. Lincoln Chafee - well, yawn.
3. Martin O'Malley. I was surprised his voice sounded so shaky. Not as commanding as he needed to be to make it a 3 way race. Running for President is about big money and he didn't make the case he should be ahead of the rest.
4. Bernie. He handled himself well. No major gaffes. He said what he believes. His views are as Left as it comes - and that is the way his fans like it and - and a good percentage of the nation does too. Look for him to raise big money off the debate but not rise in the polls.
5. Hillary. No tough questions for her - or at least she was not required to answer them. For instance, devil may care about those emails - especially if she isn't forced to answer a tough question about them. She needed not to blow it and not come off like a victim. Well, she came off as a fighter and didn't blow it. This debate helps her because she didn't look like a candidate overwhelmed. Her campaign stabilized tonight. The hearings and the FBI will have a greater say. Comment that may haunt her? Saying that Snowden broken the law and must pay for it. Hmmmm.
6. First political lesson my Father taught me when I was but 8 - way back in 1969. "Democrats have it made. They have convinced people they can vote themselves rich." I will never forget his words. Tonight, the Democrats worked hard to make that case - from immigrants (legal and otherwise) to college students. In that sense, the Democrats improved their standing because in politics, people are sold free lunches and others silently endure paying for them.

If this is correct, it seems the American people have been fed a wholesale lie by the Obama administration and everyone in the mainstream media, because apparently, the Iranian parliament NEVER voted to approve the Obama Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA). And all the while Iran still holds four Americans hostage and released a video yesterday of an underground facility where long-range missiles are stored.
This is a SHAM.
As Breitbart reports, “The Iranian parliament has rejected the formal, legal text of President Barack Obama’s nuclear deal, negotiated in July by the U.S., U.K., France, Germany, Russia, China and the Tehran regime.
Instead, the majilis approved their own version of the JCPOA, creating a situation where the Iranian government simply hasn’t signed on to the accord that Obama and Democratic Senators obligated the United States to uphold.

KNOCK OUT: People are fist pumping over this blistering letter from Trey Gowdy to this Dem Rep http://t.co/rtmVARKUEM— TwitchyTeam (@TwitchyTeam) October 9, 2015
Gowdy won’t let Democrat Rep. Cummings get away with it. This really is incredible. You can read Gowdy’s full letter here. Townhall’s Guy Benson summed it up with this:
Read the entire thing. It’s extraordinary, on several levels: First, Gowdy summons his prosecutorial vigor to absolutely demolish the ranking Democrat on the House Select Committee on Benghazi. Democrats have seized upon erstwhile Speaker-in-waiting Kevin McCarthy’s ill-advised comments to try to shut down the panel’s probe — a continuation of their ongoing, partisan efforts to dismiss its focus as a “phony scandal” and to portray the investigation as a political witch hunt. Gowdy has been unsparing in his rejection of McCarthy’s since-abandoned characterization and unflagging in his defense of the committee’s work. In response to Democrat Elijah Cummings’ endless attacks and accusations, the South Carolina Republican drops the hammer.

In a rare burst of independence and self-interest, the California Legislature, led by largely Latino and Inland Democrats, last month defeated Gov. Jerry Brown’s attempt to cut gasoline use in the state by 50 percent by 2030. These political leaders, backed by the leftovers of the once-powerful oil industry, scored points by suggesting that this goal would lead inevitably to much higher fuel prices and even state-imposed gas rationing.
Days later, however, state regulators announced plans to impose similarly tough anti-fossil-fuel quotas anyway. This pronouncement, of course, brought out hosannas from the green lobby – as well as their most reliable media allies. Few progressives today appear concerned that an expanding, increasingly assertive regulatory state, as long as it errs on the “right side,” poses any long-term risks.
Welcome to the new age of authority, in which voters’ mundane concerns are minimized, and the bureaucracy – backed by an elected executive – rules the roost, armed with full confidence that it knows best. Nor is this merely a California phenomenon.
