Greece’s parliament just signed its surrender to Germany. The country signed over virtually all of its national assets and all its future income for 30 years.

Will Germany send its army? Probably.
In Washington, Barack Obama berated a skeptical press for questioning the agreement he reached with the world’s largest exporter of Islamic terrorism. The agreement more or less guarantees a nuclear Iran by 2025. Yet Democrats who should know better defend Obama because party comes before country.

Facing certain historical condemnation as a failed president, Obama is clutching at straws, hoping against hope that something works.
