CNN BREAKING NEWS . . .


President Barack Obama today hailed the powers of diplomacy in dealing with Iran, as the nuclear deal struck with the government in Tehran takes effect and “unjustly detained” Americans return home after a prisoner swap.

“Engaging directly with the Iranian government on a sustained basis, for the first time in decades, has created a unique opportunity, a window, to resolve important issues,” Obama said from the White House during a rare Sunday public statement.

He called the new agreement with Iran a “milestone” in making sure it doesn’t get a nuclear weapon.

“We’ve now closed off every single path Iran had to building a (nuclear) bomb,” he said. “We’ll know if Iran ever tries to break out.”

“Fox News Columnist Goes Off The Rails, Links Pope Francis to Satan”


DAILY KOS

“The pope has seriously disappointed those who believe the Roman Catholic Church preserves and teaches the Truth. The Truth is Christ risen and unity with Him. It is not a debate about the minimum wage or air conditioning.

Pope Francis is popular on the world stage, and the crowds love him. But if he fails in his basic duties as the pope, if his concern is more for secular than sacred, if he aids the political agenda of the atheistic left, he is a false prophet leading his flock to a dangerous place, where there is more central planning and less personal liberty.” MORE
