Hello and welcome to the Watcher’s Council’s new feature, ‘Weasel Of The Week’ feature, where we award the golden plastic Weasel to a public figure who particularly deserves to be publicly slimed and mocked for his or her dastardly deeds during the week. Every Tuesday morning, tune in for the Weasel of the Week nominations and check back Thursday to see which Weasel gets the votes and walks off with the statuette of shame!

 

Here are this weeks’ nominees:

Governor Jerry Brown!

The Noisy Room: My nomination for Weasel of the Week is Gov. Jerry Brown for his promotion of Amnesty with Mexican President Enrique Pena Nieto (who said the state of California was more “evolved” than other states) last week. He basically said that California and Mexico are now one: “If we can put a man on the moon, we can put a man from Mexico to California in 20 minutes.” In the name of justice, he is breaking the law and endorsing the invasion of the US and the eradication of her borders and sovereignty. California is the Petri dish for the rest of the nation and Brown is the slime in that dish that is producing a foreign invasion that has turned into a deadly plague to the American body. In the name of diversity, he is aiding in the destruction of the Republic.

The British Government, represented by The Rotherham City Council!

The Glittering Eye: These weasels preferred letting more than 1,000 children be sexually abused by “Asian men” to being thought of as racist.

The Colossus of Rhodey: I nominate the British Government for failing to respond to, and for establishing the politically correct culture which led to, the raping/sexual exploitation of FOURTEEN HUNDRED children by (mostly) Muslim men from Pakistan in the years 1997-2013.

Al Gore!

The Right Planet: Al Gore, who claimed in 2007 that the Arctic Ice Cap would be gone by 2013 due to the “devastating” effects of anthropogenic (man-made) global warming. But Steven Goddard recently reported, that not only has the Arctic Ice Cap not melted, but Arctic sea ice coverage has grown by 68% in the past two years (not to mention the fact there has been no global warming for the past 14 years).

Al Gore has been on a one-man crusade (in cahoots with the United Nations, et al., of course) to impose crushing “climate change” regulations and global taxes in order to curb the alleged global warming scourge–which really just amounts to a global wealth redistribution scheme that only benefits the globalists and the ruling elites, in my opinion. And I’m not alone in that assessment, to be sure.

Dr. Henry Wagner!

Rhymes With Right: Dr. Henry Wagner, Superintendent of Schools for the Dorchester County Public Schools in Dorchester County, Maryland was more than willing to publicly comment about the suspension of middle school teacher Patrick McLaw being suspended from his position for writing, publishing, and selling a pair of dystopian science fiction novels that involve school shootings in the year 2902 (yes, that is nine centuries from now) when news broke about the suspension.

But now that people are questioning the legitimacy of McLaw being suspended from his job, taken into custody by police and forced to submit to psychological evaluation as a threat to school security, Wagner is hiding behind the old dodge about protecting the rights of an employee to confidentiality in a “personnel matter” despite having previously intimated that McLaw constituted some sort of threat due to the decision to keep law enforcement personnel on McLaw’s now-former campus “for as long as we deem it necessary.”

Secretary of State John Kerry!

Virginia Right!: “After a disastrous week during which Barack Obama made the stunning admission that he has no plan to deal with the terror group ISIS, rather than call all hands to the table and spend as long as it takes to formulate a strategy and a plan to deal with this menace, the Secretary of State, John Kerry, takes a fun filled holiday away from it all.

Kerry was captured in a photo op kiteboarding in Nantucket. Regardless of the threat to America and the American lives in the balance, Mr. Kerry could not be bothered to do his job.

This is the caliber of the people running this country.

 eric-holder-pays-ferguson-black-gangs-loot-riot.jpg

Attorney General Eric Holder!

Ask Marion: for paying people to stir the racial divide pot and start riots in Ferguson.

  Well, there it is! Are these worthy weasels or what? Check back Thursday to see which Weasel walks off with the statuette of shame!

Make sure to tune in every Monday for the Watcher’s Forum.

And remember, every Wednesday, the Council has its weekly contest with the members nominating two posts each, one written by themselves and one written by someone from outside the group for consideration by the whole Council. The votes are cast by the Council, and the results are posted on Friday morning.

It’s a weekly magazine of some of the best stuff written in the blogosphere, and you won’t want to miss it...or any of the other fantabulous Watcher’s Council content.

The History of Labor Day

President Grover Cleveland signed an act of Congress in 1894 establishing Labor Day as the first Monday of September because he didn't want to lend support to the socialists and anarchists who rallied annually on May 1 to celebrate International Workers Day. (Photo credit: Library of Congress)

Forbes

Most of the world marks Labor Day on May 1 with parades and rallies. Americans celebrate it in early September, by heading to the beach or firing up the grill. Why the discrepancy? Here’s a hint: The answer would have been a great disappointment to Frederick Engels.

Engels, the co-author of The Communist Manifesto, had high hopes for May Day, which originated in the United States. When the socialist-dominated organization known as the Second International jumped on the American bandwagon and adopted May 1 as International Labor Day, Engels confidently expected the proletariats of Europe and America to merge into one mighty labor movement and sweep capitalism into the dustbin of history.

Things didn’t work out that way, of course, and the divergent Labor Day celebrations are part of the story.

May Day’s origins can be traced to Chicago, where the Federation of Organized Trades and Labor Unions, under its leader Samuel Gompers, mounted a general strike on May 1, 1886, as part of its push for an eight-hour work day. On May 4, during a related labor rally in Haymarket Square, someone threw a bomb, which killed a policeman and touched off a deadly mêlée. As a result, four radical labor leaders were eventually hanged on dubious charges.

In 1888, Gompers’s union reorganized itself as the American Federation of Labor, and revived its push for the eight-hour day. Gompers laid plans for a strike to begin on May 1, 1890–the fourth anniversary of the walkout that had led to the Haymarket affair. Meanwhile, in Paris, a group of labor leaders were meeting to establish the Second International. To these Europeans, the executed Chicago radicals were revered martyrs. In an act of solidarity, the Second International set May 1, 1890, as a day of protest.

Engels was thrilled. “As I write these lines, the proletariat of Europe and America is holding a review of its forces; it is organized for the first time as one army,” he wrote on the first May Day. “The spectacle we are now witnessing will make the capitalists and landowners of all lands realize that today the proletarians of all lands are, in very truth, united. If only Marx were with me to see it with his own eyes!”

The first May Day was deemed a success, so the Second International adopted it as an annual event. And for a few years, it seemed as though May 1 might be on the way to becoming a rallying point for socialists in America, as it was elsewhere. The Panic of 1893 touched off a national wave of bankruptcies that plunged the nation into a deep depression–and depressions generally push workers toward radical solutions. Things came to a boil with the Pullman Strike, which erupted in Chicago in May 1894. The striking Pullman Palace Car Co. workers quickly won the support of the American Railway Union, led by Gompers’s rival Eugene V. Debs. Railroad traffic in much of the country was paralyzed.

President Grover Cleveland, a conservative Democrat, was determined to squash the strike. But he did not want to alienate the American Federation of Labor, which was not yet involved in the Pullman dispute. Moreover, 1894 was a midterm election year, and the Democratic Party could ill afford to be seen as an enemy of labor. Cleveland and the Democrats hit upon a possible solution: They would proclaim a national Labor Day to honor the worker. But not on May 1–that date was tainted by its association with socialists and anarchists. Fortunately, an alternative was at hand.

Back in September 1882, certain unions had begun to celebrate a Labor Day in New York City. By 1894, this event was an annual late-summer tradition in New York and had been adopted by numerous states, but it was not a national holiday. Nor was it associated with the radicals who ran the Second International, and who liked to run riot on May Day.

On the contrary, the September date was closely associated with Gompers, who was campaigning to have it declared a national holiday. Gompers opposed the socialists and was guiding the AFL toward a narrower and less-radical agenda. Gratefully, Cleveland seized upon the relatively innocuous September holiday as a way to reward labor without endorsing radicalism. On June 28, 1894, he signed an act of Congress establishing Labor Day as a federal holiday on the first Monday of September. (He made a point of sending the signing pen to Gompers as a souvenir.) Less than a week later, the president sent federal troops to Chicago. Gompers refused to support the strike, which soon collapsed.

With his union in ruins, Debs went into politics, but his Socialist Party ultimately failed to catch on as America’s party of the left. Organized labor did not regain its momentum until the 1930s–and by that point, Gompers’s September holiday had been institutionalized as America’s Labor Day. May Day, meanwhile, had become the occasion for big annual parades in Moscow’s Red Square, which did not improve that holiday’s reputation in the United States.

May Day today is well established in most of the world as International Labor Day. May 1 also remains a traditional date on which leftists and anarchists of various stripes take to the streets to demonstrate their scorn for capitalism. But America, which has proved impervious to socialism, still celebrates Labor Day in September–and not by marching. AFL officials in New York long ago gave up holding their annual parade on Labor Day itself, because it could not compete with the prospect of a three-day weekend. The parade in recent years has been held on the following Saturday, and even so has been sparsely attended. This year, it has been canceled altogether.

Only 12% of the U.S. workforce belongs to a union these days, down from a peak of 33.2% in 1955. But whether they belong to a union or not, most Americans still have to work, so they appreciate a day off–and they prefer to spend it by relaxing, rather than storming the barricades.

ICYMI: There’s a BIG Difference Between a ‘Neocon’ and a Conservative

Quigley-Carroll-right-left-quote

By: Brent Parrish

Well, if you’re like me, you might have noticed that for around the past 100 years, regardless of whether the Democrats or the Republicans are in charge, our nation’s problems and the threat to our liberties just keeps increasing—ever-growing national debt, ever-expanding government power, endless no-win wars, inflationary and deflationary cycles, constant social upheavals, etc.

From Dr. Carroll Quigley’s book Tragedy and Hope (p. 1,247):

“The National parties and their presidential candidates, with the Eastern Establishment assiduously fostering the process behind the scenes, moved closer together and nearly met in the center with almost identical candidates and platforms, although the process was concealed as much as possible, by the revival of obsolescent or meaningless war cries and slogans (often going back to the Civil War)…. The argument that the two parties should represent opposed ideals and policies, one, perhaps, of the Right and the other of the Left, is a foolish idea acceptable only to the doctrinaire and academic thinkers. Instead, the two parties should be almost identical, so that the American people can ‘throw the rascals out’ at any election without leading to any profound or extreme shifts in policy…. Either party in office becomes in time corrupt, tired, unenterprising, and vigorless. Then it should be possible to replace it, every four years if necessary, by the other party, which will be none of these things but will still pursue, with new vigor, approximately the same basic policies.”

I used to believe that the whole neocon label that some hurled at those on the right-side of the political spectrum was just a derogatory term used by leftists and their ilk against their GOP rivals. To be sure, many do whip around the “neocon” label as a slur without knowing the real meaning behind the term. I’ve since discovered there is a lot more to the notion of neo-conservatism than I had previously realized.

Via History Commons:

The philosophy that becomes known as “neoconservativism” traces its roots to leftist ideologues in New York City who, before World War II, begin sorting themselves into two camps: those who support Franklin D. Roosevelt’s economic “New Deal” policies, and more radical individuals who consider themselves followers of Soviet communism.

This is why some refer to de facto neo-conservatives as “Trotskyite Neocons” or “Rockefeller Republicans”—members of the elitist “Eastern Establishment,” as Dr. Carroll Quigley describes it in his monumental work Tragedy and Hope.

“The other important influence on neoconservatives was the legacy of Trotsky…. In the framework of international communism, the Trotskyites were rabid internationalists rather than realists or nationalists.”

—John Ehrman, The Rise of Neoconservatism, 1995

Irving Kristol, father of Bill Kristol (editor and publisher of the Washington, D.C.-based political magazine The Weekly Standard) stated, “I regard myself as lucky to have been a young Trotskyite and I have not a single bitter memory.”

irving-kristol-neo-conservatism

From Irving Kristol’s 1995 book, Neoconservatism: The Autobiography of an Idea:

“In 1972, the nomination of George McGovern signified that the Democratic Party was not hospitable to any degree of neoconservatism…. Only a few of us drew the obvious conclusion that we would have to find a home in the Republican Party…. But with every year passing year, our numbers grow.”

[...]

“We … accepted the New Deal in principle, and had little affection for the kind of isolationism that then permeated American conservatism.”

This is why I’m no longer a cheerleader for any one political group or movement. If anything, I’m an American and a strict constitutionalist. Admittedly, I do find my positions more closely aligning with those who identify themselves as “conservatives” or “TEA partiers.” But I never agree with anybody or any one group all of the time, nor do I expect the same in return. But the current political climate is quite fond of all the labels. It’s almost impossible to discuss American politics without bringing up the “right-left paradigm.”

A couple of years I posted some work by the Executive Director for the Clemson Institute for the Study of Capitalism and political science professor at Clemson University in South Carolina, C. Bradley Thompson. I’ve also communicated with Professor Thompson following an article I wrote, which was heavily based upon a powerful presentation he gave at the Foundation for Economic Education (FEE) entitled “Why Marxism?” Professor Thompson provided what I felt were some very important insights into the core ideology that is Marxian socialism. I highly recommend giving it a view (watch here), especially if you’re not too familiar with the tenets of Marxist ideology.

C. Bradley Thompson has also written (with Yaron Brook) a comprehensive and original analysis of neoconservatism entitled Neoconservatism: An Obituary for an Idea. I’ve included Thompson’s book presentation at the Cato Institute Book Forum (2011) below:

Via YouTube/Libertarianism.org:

Featuring the author C. Bradley Thompson, Clemson University; with comments by Tod Lindberg, Hoover Institution; moderated by David Boaz, Cato Institute.

C. Bradley Thompson, professor of political science and executive director of the Clemson Institute for the Study of Capitalism, has written (with Yaron Brook) a comprehensive and original analysis of neoconservatism. Neoconservatism probes what neoconservatives call their “philosophy of governance” — their plan for governing America. It explicates the deepest philosophic principles of neoconservatism, traces the intellectual relationship between the political philosopher Leo Strauss and contemporary neoconservative political actors, and provides a trenchant critique of neoconservatism from the perspective of America’s founding principles. What makes this book so compelling is that Thompson actually lived for many years in the Straussian/neoconservative intellectual world. Neoconservatism therefore fits into the “breaking ranks” tradition of scholarly criticism. Thompson charges that neoconservatism is a species of anti-Americanism, a claim sure to draw strong opposition — probably from Tod Lindberg, editor of Policy Review and a member of the Hoover Institution’s Task Force on the Virtues of a Free Society.

Forum: What’s Your Favorite Sport, And Your Least Favorite? Why?

The Watcher’s Council

worst-best-sport

Every week on Monday morning , the Council and our invited guests weigh in at the Watcher’s Forum, short takes on a major issue of the day, the culture, or daily living. This week’s question:What’s Your Favorite Sport, And Your Least Favorite? Why?

The Colossus of Rhodey :My favorite sport to watch by far is professional football. I’ve been a Rams fans since 1972 (when I was seven), and they remain the ONLY team I truly care about. When they won Super Bowl 34, I actually cried. And when they lost Super Bowl 36, I cried again (because they were actually a much better team than the SB 34 crew, but stupid Mike Martz, dammit!).

My current favorite sport to play is golf. But back in the day, when I was a lad, it was basketball. Up until my late 20s, I routinely played b-ball with my buddies at local parks and gyms until we were completely exhausted.

My least favorite sport to watch professional basketball. I used to love it back in the day (was a huge 76ers fan when Dr. J and Moses Malone brought home the championship), but now it’s home to selfish hot dogs who can’t play defense and who care only about the ESPN highlight reel on offense.

 The Independent Sentinel : My favorite sport is nothing and my least favorite is everything. I’d rather watch old movies or play my guitar.

 JoshuaPundit: I rarely watch sports, but when I do I tend to be interested in sports I participated in and/or fancy I know a little something about. So the ones I can watch for awhile without boredom tend to be limited to baseball, soccer (my letter in High School), boxing  some of the other martial arts or some of the more esoteric games like Lacrosse, Hurling or Aussie Rules..which I know very little about but have their entertaining aspects. I mean, watching 15 Irishmen on each side armed with ash sticks trying to hit a small ball and do each other in? Who wouldn’t enjoy that?

My favorite above all is baseball. Ever since I played it as a kid, I’ve always been attracted to the  zen aspect of it (something is always going on behind the scenes and people succeed or fail  by inches, literally) and the high degree of skill involved. It’s the only sport I can think of offhand where someone who fails seven times out of ten is considered successful, and I even appreciate the rise and fall of tension and release in the game.I don’t have a particular team I root for or follow, I just enjoy watching  the game. My favorite games, of course,  were watching my daughter play Blue Star Baseball and AYSO soccer as a child. She had the fury and the tools, I tell you!

Least favorite? Roundball. Basketball has always bored me silly.

Laura Rambeau Lee of Right Reason : I have never been one to watch team sports. The one sport I always look forward to watching is figure skating. I am captivated by the strength of the male skaters, the grace of the female skaters, and the synchronicity and mesmerizing beauty of the pair skaters. My least favorite sport? Golf. Enough said.

David Gerstmann :Growing up my favorite sport was baseball. From when we moved to Baltimore until I was a young adult the Orioles were always good. So it was fun to root for them. Plus, I could play baseball or softball with my peers.I’d never be the first pick in any game, but I could field well and get on base, so I wasn’t the last pick either.

But from 1986 to 2012, with the exception of six good years during the 1990?s the Orioles stunk. So baseball stopped being of such interest. (Though the Orioles’ performance since 2012 has certainly rekindled interest in the sport!)

However lately, football has become my favorite sport to watch. I can watch it with my sons. The Ravens have been good, so their games are usually worth watching. Also, I appreciate the game a lot more than I used to for some reason.

The highlight of watching football was probably two years ago when I watched the end of the Raven / Broncos playoff game two years ago. With less than a minute left Joe Flacco hit Jacoby Jones for a 70 yard touchdown. I don’t think that I’ve ever seen a better play.

As great as the play was though, what was even better was rooting on the team shouting with my son as the Ravens came back to force the game into overtime.

 GrEaT sAtAn”S gIrLfRiEnD : Baseball baby! Love watching it or playing it!

Methinks it’s acause in the field – an opposing player faces a team. At bat – it’s time for individual achievement. From some gangster movie i think…

Ask Marion : If you consider commercial dance a sport, and more and more people do, then that would be my favorite sport. The physicality and wide range of abilities required of commercial dancers is amazing. Commercial dancers can and do perform and compete in all styles of dancing from ballet to hiphop and everything in-between. With my daughter having been a commercial dancer, I spent many years in that world.

But if we are looking at the more traditionally accepted sports, then as a participant, my vote goes to downhill snow skiing. It is fun, challenging and you are surrounded by beauty. My dad was ski champion is Austria in his youth and the love for the sport seemed to be passed to me naturally, although I was never exceptional; a terminal intermediate I always say.

As for being a spectator, my husband is a fanatical sports fan; played both football and baseball and was a competitive swimmer. He loves everything, so something is always playing in the background at our house. As for me, ice hockey is my favorite spectator sport. It is exciting, fast moving and I love when the gloves hit the ice. No wimps in ice hockey!!

My least favorite sport is basketball and I can’t even tell you why. It just bores me.

  Well, there you have it.

Make sure to tune in every Monday for the Watcher’s Forum. You also won’t want to miss our new Weasel Of The Week feature, where we award the golden plastic Weasel to a public figure who particularly deserves to be publicly slimed and mocked for his or her dastardly deeds during the week. . Tune in Tuesday for the Weasel of the Week  nominations and check back Thursday to see which Weasel walks off with the statuette of shame!

What the United Nations Doesn’t Want You to Know

UN-Logo

By: Brent Parrish

My friend Lt. Robert Powell from the Pacific Freedom Foundation recently emailed me about a new PowerPoint presentation he put together (compiled and written by Irving Baxter Jr.) on the murky origins of the United Nations. This is also a subject matter I’ve delved into quite deeply myself. Powell’s slides offer the history in manageable chunks, and I’ve converted the slides into web-ready images. Please feel free to share this information with others (with proper citations, of course).

UN-1 UN-2 UN-3 UN-4 UN-5 UN-6 UN-7 UN-8 UN-9 UN-10 UN-11

Not too long ago I posted a video produced in the mid-nineties concerning a U.S. Army soldier, SPC Michael New, who refused to wear the UN insignia and uniform, or accept orders from a foreign commander under the auspices of the United Nations. New’s reasoning was simple: he pledged an oath to defend the United States and the U.S. Constitution, not the United Nations and its Charter.

The Michael New case received very little press coverage at the time. New was threatened with court-martial, but he decided to fight the charges. Unfortunately, Michael New lost the case and eventually received a court-martial and a dishonorable discharge. (Jeff Lindsay has written about New’s case. Read more here.)

In preparation for his case, Michael New did his homework. New pointed out that the U.N. does not own a land mass per se (of course, the U.N. considers the entire earth its “land mass”), but they do have most of the elements a fully-functioning government needs to have–meaning: they have a ruler (Secretary General), a governing body (the General Assembly and Security Council), a treasury/banking system (i.e. World Bank, International Monetary Fund, Bank of International Settlements, etc.), a legal system (International Criminal Court), an array of bureaucratic agencies (NGO’s), a flag, an oath of allegiance. and a charter.

The one thing the U.N. does not have is a tax. But there have been many who are calling for a global tax administered by the United Nations. In 2012, Vice President Joe Biden called for a “minimum global tax.” Furthermore, a global tax could be implemented via sweeping “climate change” regulations presently being pushed by the United Nations to supposedly reduce “carbon emissions” globally .

Recently, President Obama has threatened to use executive order to enact a sweeping “climate change accord” proposed by the U.N. in lieu of a treaty. While some argue the president does not have the authority to ratify a treaty without confirmation from the Senate, the administration is instead calling it an “accord,” as opposed to a treaty, thus attempting to bypass the Senate altogether.

Of course, one last thing needed for the United Nations to become a fully functioning global government is an all-powerful military force. In 1961, Council of Foreign Relations member and “Disarmament Adviser” to President Kennedy, John J. McCloy, authored a State Department document entitled Freedom From War: The United States Program for General and Complete Disarmament in a Peaceful World (read here), which urges the disarmament of all national military forces and the creation of a United Nations’ superforce.

Global Warming Charlatan Al Gore Predicted NO ARCTIC ICE in 2013 — Summer Ice Cap Highest Since 2006

ice-cap-growthBy: David Rose

The speech by former US Vice-President Al Gore was apocalyptic. ‘The North Polar ice cap is falling off a cliff,’ he said. ‘It could be completely gone in summer in as little as seven years. Seven years from now.’

Those comments came in 2007 as Mr Gore accepted the Nobel Peace Prize for his campaigning on climate change.

But seven years after his warning, The Mail on Sunday can reveal that, far from vanishing, the Arctic ice cap has expanded for the second year in succession – with a surge, depending on how you measure it, of between 43 and 63 per cent since 2012.

Obama Works Towards a US/Iran Alliance

By: Trevor Loudon
New Zeal

This explains so much.

Michael Ledeen writing at Pajamas Media.

iran-vj-bho-alliance

They DO have a strategy, but they prefer to appear indecisive. That’s because the strategy would likely provoke even greater criticism than the false confession of endless dithering.

The actual strategy is detente first, and then a full alliance with Iran throughout the Middle East and North Africa. It has been on display since before the beginning of the Obama administration. During his first presidential campaign in 2008, Mr. Obama used a secret back channel to Tehran to assure the mullahs that he was a friend of the Islamic Republic, and that they would be very happy with his policies. The secret channel was Ambassador William G. Miller, who served in Iran during the shah’s rule, as chief of staff for the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence, and as ambassador to Ukraine. Ambassador Miller has confirmed to me his conversations with Iranian leaders during the 2008 campaign.

Ever since, President Obama’s quest for an alliance with Iran has been conducted through at least four channels: Iraq, Switzerland (the official U.S. representative to Tehran), Oman and a variety of American intermediaries, the most notable of whom is probably Valerie Jarrett, his closest adviser. In recent months, Middle Eastern leaders reported personal visits from Ms. Jarrett, who briefed them on her efforts to manage the Iranian relationship. This was confirmed to me by a former high-ranking American official who says he was so informed by several Middle Eastern leaders.

The central theme in Obama’s outreach to Iran is his conviction that the United States has historically played a wicked role in the Middle East, and that the best things he can do for that part of the world is to limit and withdraw American military might, and empower our self-declared enemies, whose hostility to traditional American policies he largely shares.

If we look at the current crisis through an Iranian lens, our apparent indecisiveness is easier to understand, for it systematically favors Iran’s interests. Tehran’s closest ally is Syrian dictator Bashar Assad. If Assad were to be overthrown by opposition forces hostile to Iran, it would be a devastating blow to Iranian Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei, who has committed tens of thousands of fighters (from Hezbollah, the Revolutionary Guards and the Basij) to shore up the Damascus regime. Everything Iran does in the region revolves around the necessity of preserving Assad’s tyranny.

Obama surely understands this. It therefore made no sense to bomb Syria in the otherwise baffling about-face on the “red line” a year ago. In like manner, the refusal to take decisive action today against the Islamic State caters to Iranian and Syrian concerns. Remember that ISIS was supported by Iran and Syria as a weapon against anti-Assad and anti-Iranian forces (from the Kurds to the FSA), none of whom is receiving serious American support.

It is exceedingly unlikely that Mr. Obama will do anything that would threaten Assad’s rule or Iran’s power. To do so would be tantamount to abandoning his core strategy of creating a U.S.-Iranian alliance that would make Tehran the major regional power and Washington a friendly kibbitzer and adviser.

It is even more unlikely that Mr. Obama and his spokespeople will confess to actually having a strategy, because of the political firestorm that would result. Better to be thought a fool than to remove all doubt, after all.
