Khamenei rebuffs U.S.
offer of direct talks

Reuters, by Marcus George

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 2/7/2013 11:47:01 AM

Iran´s highest authority, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, on Thursday slapped down an offer of direct talks made by U.S. Vice President Joe Biden this week, saying they would not solve the problem between them. "Some naive people like the idea of negotiating with America, however, negotiations will not solve the problem," Khamenei said in a speech to officials and members of Iran´s air force carried on his official website. "If some people want American rule to be established again in Iran, the nation will rise up to face them," he said.

How startling this is. s/o The fact that this pathetic regime even thinks they can talk to these delusional maniacs is terrifying. Heaven help us all.

The mullahs will offer to negotiate AFTER they have terrorized their neigbors and achieved hegemony in the Gulf. Perhaps they´ll also nuke Tel Aviv just to prove they can.

You don´t negotiate with Khamanei you scare him. Tell him a cruise missile is headed his way. He´ll run for the airport with his gold. When Tehran was overrun during the Ashura protests in 2009 there were rumors he had three planes at the airport waiting so he could flee.

All world leaders know Obama is behind the Arab Spring invasions, to intentionally create WW havoc. He has no credibility and less respect, as they know he is a Saudi Prince/Muslim Brotherhood Puppet. They don´t even want our borrowed money anymore.

If we had a State Dept. we would have kept this announcement under the table until the right answer was assured.


If we nuked a few ´facilities´ this afternoon it would send a warm fuzzy feeling to all our friends and send a chilly-willy to our enemies.

They´ve already had direct talks. Valerie brings back the handwritten orders. So far he´s been told to let them get nuclear weapons, hand over Iraq, isolate Israel, and leave them Afghanistan and Pakistan. SCOAMF follows orders very well.

A radical-leftist American Indian who was convicted of abducting, confining, and beating four postal workers during a militant crime spree has died. The New York Times began its report of his death by first listing all of the wrongs American Indians suffered at the hands of the U.S. government 100 years prior to the thug’s crimes, as though they somehow provided context or excused the man´s illegal and violent behavior. Carter Camp, a radical and violent leader of the American Indian Movement (AIM), an American Indian version of the former Black Panther Party, took up arms in 1973 against the

PASADENA, Calif. Jack Bauer is back, and he´s on the run in London. Kiefer Sutherland returns as the intrepid counter-terrorist in a 12-episode run of "24: Live Another Day," debuting with a two-hour show May 5 on Fox. It will take up its regular one-hour slot starting May 12. "I´m about as anxious and wound up as I´ve been in a long time," Sutherland said Monday at the Television Critics Association winter meeting.

Details from an extraordinary exchange of letters between a Nottingham care worker and the alleged architect of the 9/11 attacks can be revealed in the Observer today, offering an unprecedented insight into the mind of one the world´s most notorious Islamists. Khalid Sheikh Mohammed, 49, who is held at Guantánamo Bay, has endured the harshest of the CIA´s interrogation methods and allegedly confessed to a career of atrocities. Pre-trial hearings before a military commission are due to be held at Guantánamo next month.

On Monday, Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia slammed President Barack Obama’s interpretation of the U.S. Constitution during oral arguments over Recess appointments. The case, National Labor Relations Board vs. Noel Canning, is over whether the president acted legally when he made a series of temporary appointments to the National Labor Relations Board while the Senate was not conducting business but still gavelling in and out every day. Clause three of the Constitution’s section on presidential powers states that, “The president shall have power to fill up all vacancies that may happen during the recess of the Senate, by granting commissions

Katie Couric made her Yahoo News debut Monday with an in-depth interview with former Defense Secretary Robert Gates, whose new book, Duty: Memoirs of a Secretary at War has caused a massive stir for its criticisms of the Obama Administration. On the White House’s objections to what he wrote, Gates suggested they “look in the mirror.” Gates, wearing a neck brace that is the result of a recent fall, pushed back against those who say he should have waiting until President Barack Obama was out of office to write his memoir, or that the overall tone of the book is negative

Robert Gates’s Dishonorable Act

Robert Gates has been an extraordinarily distinguished public servant. A recipient of the Presidential Medal of Freedom, he has worked for eight presidents, serving as defense secretary under both President George W. Bush and President Barack Obama. The nation owes him a deep and enduring debt of gratitude. But his new memoir, “Duty,” raises troubling ethical questions. A former public official has a special obligation -- in fact a duty -- not to betray the confidence of a sitting president, especially in the area of national security. Even if private conversations involve people who are no longer in office, the

More About Sensationalism Than Media Bias

Media bias is a topic we hear much about working in the news business and the news-that-covers-the-news business alike. Bias obviously exists, and despite what one side or the other will claim, it is most definitely a two-way street against conservatives and liberals alike…just depends on your network or publication of choice. But objectivity has become such a dirty word in 2014 not because journalists suddenly became activists and advocates. Instead, it’s the same rule that applies to the reason behind anything and everything in this world: Follow the money. And in television and print, money mostly comes in the form

Mayor de Blasio took political fundraising to new extremes during his come-from-behind campaign, a Daily News review has found. Deep-pocket donors showered him with checks far in excess of the usual campaign finance limitations, thanks to loopholes that allowed for double- and even triple-giving. De Blasio was able to raise money on three fronts in the same election cycle: first for his campaign, then for a $300,000 fine he still owed from a 2009 campaign, and finally for his inauguration and transition costs. That meant individual donors limited to giving no more than $4,950 per election cycle were able to give the maximum

Rep.

Miller is the top-ranking Democrat on the House Education and the Workforce Committee and is the fifth-longest serving congressman. He was just 29 when he was first sworn in in 1975.

A 2008 documentary reveals that Terry McAuliffe, who is being sworn in today as governor of Virginia, thinks that members of the Bush family “should all have been put away in jail.” The documentary, Boogie Man: The Lee Atwater Story, features a clip of President George H.W. Bush’s 1989 Inaugural Address, where Bush discusses the need to “make kinder the face of the nation” with regard to "those who cannot free themselves of enslavement to whatever addiction—drugs, welfare, the demoralization that rules the slums.” The film cuts from the inaugural footage to novelist Ishmael Reed, who thinks it’s hypocritical for

The Federal Bureau of Investigation didn’t find the kind of political bias needed to file criminal charges over the Internal Revenue Service’s heightened scrutiny of tea party groups, law enforcement officials told the Wall Street Journal. “Instead, what emerged during the probe was evidence of a mismanaged bureaucracy enforcing rules about tax-exemption applications it didn’t understand, according to the law-enforcement officials,” the newspaper said. The case is still being investigated, but officials familiar with the case said it is increasingly unlikely any criminal charges will result. The investigation was sparked after the Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration revealed the

Hillary Clinton warns in a new book that the “clock is turning back” on women across America and offers a passionate argument for prioritizing the advancement of women and girls. Clinton, the former secretary of state and possible presidential contender, is one of a slew of high-profile contributors to a new report set to be released Sunday compiled by author and activist Maria Shriver and the liberal Center for American Progress. “[Fighting] to give women and girls a fighting chance isn’t just a nice thing to do,” Clinton writes in “The Shriver Report: A woman’s nation pushes back from the

In 1994 or early 1995 the still unknown Barack Obama sent his editor at Times Books, Henry Ferris, the first two-thirds of his memoir Dreams from My Father. He told Ferris that to complete the book, he had to return to Kenya to do some research. The evidence strongly suggests that Obama went not to Kenya to do that research but to the local library to do some borderline plagiarizing. In the way of background, Barack and Michelle Obama visited Kenya in the summer of 1992 and married in October of that year. There is little dispute about the timing of

Washington - Just days after dismissing two top advisers for their roles in the George Washington Bridge scandal, New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie is facing questions over the use of Superstorm Sandy relief funds. CNN has learned that federal officials are investigating whether Christie improperly used those relief funds to produce tourism ads that starred him and his family. The news couldn´t come at a worse time for the scandal-plagued Republican, who is facing two probes into whether his staff tied up traffic near the country´s busiest bridge to punish a Democratic mayor who refused to endorse his successful re-election bid.

Before Chris Christie’s first scandal devolves into an obsessive quest to prove who knew what, when, it’s worth pausing to appreciate the wonderful, quintessential New Jerseyness of the incident itself. What happened, roughly, is this. On August 13, Bridget Anne Kelly, one of Christie’s three deputy chiefs of staff, sent an email to David Wildstein, a Christie confidant serving as an executive for the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey, which controls much of the transit infrastructure of northern Jersey. Kelly said that it was “time for some traffic problems in Fort Lee.” Some speculate that the precipitating

Earlier this week, there was a spring in conservatives’ step. That was because Chris Christie was in deep doo-doo. His career seemed to be imploding, over Bridgegate. Conservatives hadn’t been so happy since the Obamacare rollout (which wasn’t that long ago). The end of Christie’s career would not be a good thing — for New Jersey, for the Republican party, for conservatism, or for the country. He is a valuable conservative, one of the most talented politicians in America. We are lucky to have him on our side — general side. Lately, I have been more and more impatient with 100-percenters —

But I wanted a dermatologist near our home in Beverly Hills, so I asked around and got a reference for a Dr. Wang, as I will call him. (Not his real name.) This afternoon, I entered his tiny waiting room, introduced myself to the young women behind the counter and smiled. The women asked me to fill out several forms, which I did and handed them back.

With media attention focused on Chris Christie and Bridgegate, it was easy to miss a more important Washington story last week. The other shoe dropped on the Obama presidency. Still battered at home by the ObamaCare debacle and the permanently sluggish economy, the last thing the White House wanted was bad news on foreign policy. But that’s exactly what it got, and then some, thanks to the shockingly scathing book by Robert Gates. The former defense secretary offers the most devastating critique to come from an Obama insider. He paints the president as estranged from the very Afghan military surge he ordered

Inside a cramped third-floor office of Hillary Clinton’s once-bustling presidential campaign headquarters in the Ballston neighborhood of Arlington, Va., Kris Balderston and Adrienne Elrod put the finishing touches on a political hit list. It was late June 2008, and Hillary had dropped her bid for the presidency earlier that month. The war room, where her brain trust had devolved into profanity-laced shouting matches, was empty. The data crunchers were gone. The political director had drifted out. A handful of Hillary’s aides had already hooked up with Sen. Barack Obama’s campaign in Chicago. Balderston’s salt-and-pepper beard gave him the look of a
