In doing so, she is leaving the U.S. and the entire world at the whims of Islamic zealots.
The policies of Diane Feinstein and Barack Hussein Obama prove that Albert Einstein was right. Perhaps more important these policies put the entire world in danger. This is just one more reason why Diane Feinstein must be defeated by Elizabeth Emken for the U.S. Senate. The United States can not continue to elect the “Too Wrong” and “Too Long” for the entire United States. Just as Feinstein was wrong about lining up with Obama Care, this may well be the biggest blunder of the 78-year old senator.
Senate candidate Elizabeth Emken with her son, Alex, 19, and daughters Hayleigh, 16, and Emmaleigh, 12. After Alex was diagnosed with autism 15 years ago, Emken became lobbyist for Autism Speaks. Her goal was to have those with pre-existing conditions not denied health care benefits. Elizabeth has made one of her first goals to work with Senate Republicans and Democrats to repeal ObamaCare completely and replace it with the Republican plan that will be far less expensive, while accomplishing the same objectives, more efficiently at far less cost. Persons with previous illness will be included in the Republican Health Care Plan.
Senator Dianne Feinstein, (D-CA) has come out in strong support of a political solution to the Iran crisis. She is cautiously optimistic that the next round of talks in Baghdad on May 23, “may lead to a breakthrough on Iran’s nuclear program,” she wrote in the San Francisco Chronicle April 30.
Perhaps in doing so she can become an additional poster child for democrats who have no understanding of Islam, Islamic Law and Sharia. In almost four years President Obama has accomplished little that has delayed nuclear enrichment by the Iranians.
Islam, no matter the sect, is inconsistent with American values and the U.S. Constitution. Muslims believe there is but one God, and one world and that is the world of Allah that they follow. They refuse assimilation and continually make demands upon our government as well as work places in the private sector to accommodate their Seventh Century belief system. The vast majority of the tenants of Sharia are considered crimes against humanity.
So of course Feinstein wants to sit down and reason with those who’s goal is the killing the unbeliever. She like her democratic colleagues do not understand that it is impossible to reason with religious fanatics that believe dying for Allah is the ultimate accomplishment while they roam the earth. Yes, the positions Feinstein proposes in the article below seem reasonable, but only to reasonable minds. Feinstein with her “Pollyanna” view of the Islamic culture and teachings has proved once again why she has been “Too Long” and “Too Wrong,” not just for California but the entire world. A wake up call for the senator. Call it Jim’s short course or Islam 101. Islam=Submit or Die. It’s that simple.

As a leader in the among the democrat and in the Senate on national security issues, Feinstein joins other senior Senators like John Kerry in the public support of a political solution to Iran’s nuclear program. These statements signify a shift away from the bellicose rhetoric that has characterized the debate on Iran and give critical political support to the negotiations process.
Senator Feinstein, who chairs the Senate Intelligence Committee, says:
Significant challenges remain to bridge differences and overcome decades of suspicion and mistrust, but these talks deserve our full support. A few months ago, talks seemed dead and chatter about Tehran’s nuclear program centered on when, not if, Israel would attack Iran.
What has changed? First, economic sanctions against Iran are affecting the country’s economy. Iran’s ability to import and export goods has been curtailed, its financial sector is under pressure, and its currency is significantly devalued. The full weight of sanctions, including a European Union oil embargo, will be felt this summer.
Second, Iran is more isolated than ever before. Syria is in no position to help it, and Iran’s traditional U.N. Security Council defenders – Russia and China – are curbing ties.
Feinstein also credits the prospect of an Israeli military strike with increasing the pressure on Iran, but warns, “Such a strike could lead to a broader regional war.” This, she argues, is why all efforts must be expended to avert another war in the Middle East. But this is not a plea for a deal at any cost. Feinstein, who know more about the Iranian program than most observers, is very clear on what Iran needs to do:
The world community must see real progress and tangible results. Iran must demonstrate it is moving away from becoming a nuclear-armed state. The outlines of an agreement are clear: Iran would halt enrichment of uranium to 20 percent, close its Fordow uranium enrichment plant and move its stockpile of enriched uranium out of the country. It would cap future enrichment at 5 percent and all nuclear activities, facilities and stored material would be accessible to the International Atomic Energy Agency.
In return, the P5+1 and the international community would gradually lift sanctions and possibly provide Iran with equipment and material for a civilian nuclear power program and medical purposes. The United States could affirm that it does not seek regime change. As Iran fulfills its obligations and takes verifiable actions to answer questions about its nuclear program, we could respond in kind.
The Senator from California acknowledges the cynicism that many have on this issue. “Some argue Iran has no intention of curtailing its nuclear program and that any talks are bound to fail,” she says, “but I believe circumstances finally may be right to negotiate an agreement.”
A political solution may not be easy or satisfy all concerns about Iran. “But given the looming threat of an Israeli military strike and the potentially catastrophic reaction in the Middle East,” she concludes, “a diplomatic solution, offers the best outcome for Iran, Israel and the international community. We must support those efforts.”
