  • President Hassan Rouhani to Iranian parliament: Don’t make deal legally binding

    Hotair ^ | 08/31/2015 | Ed Morrissey
    Over the weekend, the undecideds in Congress got another confidence-builder from Iran on the nuclear deal that Barack Obama and John Kerry insist they support. If Congress approves the deal, it carries legal weight in the US, at least for the next 16 months or so until the next President takes office. The Iranian parliament must be rushing to provide the same level of legal commitment, right? Right? Er … no, not really: President Hassan Rouhani said Saturday he opposes a parliamentary vote on the landmark nuclear deal reached with world powers because terms of the agreement would turn...
  • The Democratic Party Adopts $15/hour Minimum Wage into National Platform

    08/29/2015 10:09:00 PM PDT · by TigerClaws · 53 replies
    The Democratic Party on Friday adopted a call to raise the minimum wage to $15/hr as part of their established party platform heading into the 2016 election season. The move further polarizes the progressive wing of the party by moving them further to the left of both the Republican Party, and corporate centrist Democrats such as Hillary Clinton. In response to the Democratic Party’s vote, Terrence Wise, a Kansas City, Mo. McDonald’s and Burger King Worker and member of the National Organizing Committee of the Fight for $15, issued the following statement.

    Coach is Right ^ | 8/27/15 | John C. Velisek USN (Ret.)
    A new report touted by NBC News’ Maggie Fox makes the claim that the level of firearm ownership can be correlated with homicide deaths of Law Enforcement Officers. More civilian gun ownership in a given area, more dead police. Study authors David Sewedler and David Hemenway would later admit that perhaps this homicide rate was actually driven by criminals. The “criminal offender theory” draws the not-so-remarkable conclusion that police who have frequent encounters with violent criminals are more likely to be injured or killed. Not all that surprising a proposition, is it? Of course, gun hating members of the media...

    Florida might have its share of Republican presidential candidates but one former presidential candidate who ran twice in the Sunshine State is behind U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas. Former U.S. Sen. Bob Smith, R-N.H., who ran twice for the U.S. Senate in Florida, was named as a co-chair of Cruz’s veterans outreach team on Wednesday. Smith joins U.S. Rep.

    At what point will members of the Obama administration, from the president himself to John Kerry and other senior officials, down to the workaday folks of the West Wing, decide that Hillary's email scandal is doing intolerable damage to whatever's left of their legacy, and decide to pull the plug? A significant line was crossed on today's Morning Joe, when Joe Scarborough flatly and repeatedly accused John Kerry's State Department of engaging in a "cover-up" on Hillary's behalf. How much longer will Kerry be willing to sacrifice his reputation on the altar of Hillary's presidential ambitions? View the video here.

The news comes out shortly after Kerry faced staunch opposition from right wing pro-Israeli Republicans to his nomination as Secretary of State. In 2009 Dr. Vanessa Bradford Kerry, John Kerry’s younger daughter by his first wife, married Dr. Brian (Behrooz) Vala Nahed, an Iranian-American physician.

    The summer has not been kind to Hillary Clinton. The drip-drip-drip of revelations about her possible misuse and mishandling of classified information threatens to become a deluge in the fall. They have taken a serious toll on her reputation — and even more notably, her treatment by liberal media figures who surely would rather she be elected even if the Risen Christ were to be the Republican nominee. Democrats are worried — so worried five donors who raised millions for President Obama as well as Obama’s chief Florida strategist have both sworn off Hillary and joined an effort to draft...

The organization, called the Special Operations Educational Fund, wrote Kerry August 5 asking that he “immediately suspend the security clearances” because of Clinton’s use of a private unsecured email server and domain name that contains classified information. SOF is a 501 (c) 4 nonprofit group. The group also asked Kerry to administratively suspend the security clearances...

    “Secretary of State John Kerry would like to assure Iran that even if it violates the terms of the gratuitous concessions ‘thrown in as add-ons’ to the nuclear deal, the regime won’t be in violation of the deal as a whole. Specifically, the arms embargo is not tied to the snapback; it is tied to a separate set of obligations. So they are not in material breach of the nuclear agreement for violating the arms piece of it. Not to worry, Kerry explains, because there are ‘other sanctions’ the US could impose — plus, we mustn’t forget about the ‘specific...

    There is a haunting familiarity to the arguments defending Planned Parenthood’s sale of body parts from aborted babies for medical research: an echo of another era of medical innovation amid moral ambiguity. Then, as now, the response of cultural leaders — especially religious leaders — is a story about the corruption, and potential renewal, of Western civilization. Today we’re told there is no other way to achieve the research results we desire, because fetal tissue is a “uniquely rich source” of stem cells, which provide invaluable clues to human development. Second, we’re led to believe that research on aborted babies...

    Why would Cuba change when the U.S. is giving them everything they want without requiring anything in return? When Donald Trump says Obama and Kerry are terrible negotiators, you think this might be what he’s talking about? For more than 50 years, the U.S. has been trying to get Cuba to restore political freedom and human rights, and we’ve cut off diplomatic relations and instituted an economic embargo until they do. They refuse. So what do Obama and Kerry do? Not only do they restore diplomatic relations, but they also push the Republican Congress (which is having none of it)...

You promise anyway. So the other party, somewhat wary of your trustworthiness, agrees. Now you have to go to that third party and get the cooperation you always knew you needed. If you don’t get it, your deal is going to fall apart and your negotiating counterpart is going...

Almost until the eve of the invasion of Iraq in March 2003, American oil companies were among the largest purchasers of Iraqi crude oil. The role that the companies, including ExxonMobil and ChevronTexaco, played in the oil-for-food program is now coming under greater scrutiny in the wake of a report by the chief arms inspector for the Central Intelligence Agency that disclosed how extensively Mr. Hussein was abusing profits from the...

    1) “University Language Guide: The Word ‘American’ Is Offensive” By Katherine Timpf Commentary by John Velisek USN (Ret), staff writer “According to a “Bias-Free Language Guide” used by the University of New Hampshire, the word “American” is “problematic” and therefore should not be used. “North Americans often use ‘American’ which usually, depending on the contexts, fails to recognize South America,” the guide explains. “[It] assumes the U.S. is the only country inside these two continents,” it adds. It recommends using “Resident of the U.S.” or “U.S. citizen” instead. According to the guide, other “problematic” terms include “opposite sex” (it recommends...

    Secretary of State John Kerry is still seeking a nuanced explanation for Iran's government saying, "Death to America". He called the Iranian government's cries of "Death to America" "not helpful" and suggested that the Supreme Leader might not really mean it. And now Kerry would like to emphasize that aside from the "Death to America" chants and the nuclear bombs and constant threats of war, at no time was he made aware of an Iranian plan to destroy America. When Kerry appeared before the House Foreign Affairs Committee on Tuesday to defend the Iran nuclear agreement, Rep. Ted Poe (R-Texas)...

    Senior Iranian officials are accusing the Obama administration of lying about the details of the recent nuclear accord in order to soothe fears among U.S. lawmakers and Americans about the implications of the deal, which will release billions of dollars to the Islamic Republic while temporarily freezing its nuclear program, according to reports from Iran’s state-controlled media.

    Secretary of State John Kerry says he does not know whether the Iranian regime truly wants to destroy America, but views its policy as one “of opposition to us and of great enmity.” When Kerry appeared before the House Foreign Affairs Committee on Tuesday to defend the Iran nuclear agreement, Rep. Ted Poe (R-Texas) asked him about Tehran’s policy in the light of the “death to America” chants common at events presided over by supreme leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei and President Hasan Rouhani. […] “Do you think it’s their policy to destroy us?” (Poe said.) “I think they have a...

    Want to buy a used nuclear Armageddon from Hanoi John? It’s hard to imagine a worse salesman for the Iran deal than John Kerry. Kerry couldn’t sell himself to Americans as a presidential candidate. Now he has to sell a nuclear Armageddon to Americans. National security was Kerry’s undoing during his presidential campaign. He had shot American soldiers in the back during Vietnam to build a base for his own political future. He had eagerly pandered to Marxist-Leninist terrorists who massacred native peoples and burned their churches. He had been for the Iraq War before he was against it and...

    The United States risks a collapse in its future negotiating credibility if it walks away from the Iranian nuclear deal, according to US secretary of state John Kerry, who argues Congress now has little choice but to back the plan. In his starkest warning yet to critics on Capitol Hill, Kerry also predicted the international coalition behind economic sanctions would quickly collapse and leave Iran even closer to developing an atomic bomb if the US sought to renegotiate terms. One hundred senators and 535 members of the House of Representatives will vote in September on whether to oppose the deal...
