White House: Obama not eyeing Iran trip
The Hill, by Julian Pecquet

Original Article

Posted By:mitzi, 12/2/2013 12:52:06 PM

The White House on Monday categorically denied a report that President Obama is planning a trip to Iran next year. “There is no truth to this report,” National Security Council spokeswoman Caitlin Hayden told The Hill in an email. Kuwait´s Arabic-language Al-Jarida is reporting on the front page of its web site that U.S. and Iranian officials are negotiating a presidential visit for the middle of next year. The report cites an unnamed U.S. diplomat and states that a key sticking point to the visit is whether Obama would meet with Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei.

Comments:
No truth to report? Their definition of truth or ours?

It appears the original report was published only in Arabic - there´s a link to original. Obviously the WH never heard of Google Translate!

The headline of the article reads, "Obama would like to visit Tehran, official invitation after details resolved."

"Al-Jarida has learned from a U.S. diplomat that President Barack Obama is seeking to visit Tehran in the middle of next year," the report reads, based on a translation using Google Translate.

Did anybody ask if Obama was "eyeing" a trip to Iran? Does anybody care if he goes or not? Would it matter if he did go?

In short, why bother printing a story about what Obama is NOT doing? To keep his name in the news? Were I him, I´d keep my name out of the news right now. He´s persona non grata to just about everybody except his hard core core.

One thing is for sure, if Obama is eying a junket to Iran, both Obama and the Iranians know it. At this stage the third man out are the American people who will just have to wait and see if Obama is being deceptive with them again.

I don´t care if he goes to Iran...I think he´s lying and the plans are complete. I wish he would take First Mooch and the Grump Sisters with him.

I want to know what are the Christmas plans for 2013. They have been very quiet about all of Michelle´s trips this year. It will be interesting to see how many official jets will go back and forth this year with budget negotiations going on in December PLUS all those insurance cancellations and Obamacare screwups coming in December.

Obviously, that they deny this trip means that it is true.

Obama won´t know that he went to Iran until he disembarks from AF1 and the Iranians inform him of where he is.

Then, it will take him 5 days and a couple of anti-American speeches to overcome GOP obstruction to get him back his winter home in DC (the White House).

While the horror show involving Brendan Eich, Proposition 8, and Mozilla was reaching its ignominious crescendo, I was in Milan, Italy, speaking before an energized crowd of activists in the Lombardy region’s county hall. Unaware of the witch hunt carried out by McCarthy’s rainbow-brandishing gay great-grandsons in Silicon Valley, a middle-aged man came forward and cried out in Italian, “Is it just me, or is the gay lobby imposing a dictatorship on us with their so-called scientific experts?” The science to which he referred wasn’t JavaScript, but rather psychology and pediatrics.

The people at Mozilla may yet live to regret their decision in cooperating with the forcing out of Brendan Eich. Apparently the internet giant has been getting a lot of negative reaction to its jettisoning of Eich for his contribution in support of California’s Proposition 8 back in 2008. Whether or not this will actually end up hurting Mozilla, one wonders whether Mozilla even anticipated the possibility. The folks at Mozilla travel in a world in which PC thought dominates, and if you don’t believe me, take Nate Silver’s word for it (and after the 2012 election, I’m inclined to

John Edwards — who quit his presidential campaign in disgrace when he was caught cheating on his wife — was barred from Bunny Mellon’s funeral by her family. The former US Senator from North Carolina had charmed Rachel Lambert Mellon, known to all as Bunny, into donating $700,000 for his 2008 presidential bid. Prosecutors charged he used some of the money to support his mistress Rielle Hunter, who was then pregnant with his daughter Frances Quinn.

ANN ARBOR, Mich. – President Obama compared the Republican budget plan to a "stinkburger" or "meanwich" during a speech here Wednesday, using a series of zingers in an attempt to strike a contrast with the GOP on economic issues in an election year. In a speech to an enthusiastic crowd of 1,400 at the University of Michigan, Obama repeatedly mocked Republican ideas about how to improve the economy, as he touted his own proposal to raise the minimum wage. Obama, who visited the local Zingerman´s deli before the speech, said that Republican proposals to cut taxes for wealthier Americans and

President Obama inspired a generation of young people to support his historic election in 2008. And in 2012, despite the struggles of his first term, Mr. Obama still managed to win the support of a full 60% of voters age 18-29. But the man who once dreamed of being a transformative leader in the Reagan mold is inspiring few of those young people to follow his lead.

Although the Civil Rights Act, the landmark legislation which just reached its 50th anniversary, made great strides in desegregating the economy, economic discrimination is still widespread, and anti-discrimination legislation alone can never rectify the economic damage inflicted upon blacks by slavery and our Jim Crow apartheid regime. The Civil Rights Act was a mild reform, all things considered, but one conservatives fought with vigor and one many conservatives are still bitter about to this day. When the Civil Rights Act passed in 1964, the primary purpose was to root out discrimination in public accommodations (like hotels and movie theaters)

When President Obama needed a preacher to fulfill the closing prayer duties at the annual White House Easter Prayer Breakfast, he turned to none other than the Episcopal Church’s first openly gay bishop — who said he was as shocked as anyone at the appointment. The Right Rev. Gene Robinson said in a tweet, accompanied by a photo of Mr. Obama behind a podium at the event: “POTUS ‘preaches’ at the Easter prayer breakfast. Then, out of the blue, asks ME to close with prayer. OMG!” Newsmax said he also emphasized that the words he chose to close the breakfast

In the first public account of the incident, the official said the Russian Fencer flew within 1,000 yards of the USS Donald Cook, a Navy destroyer, at about 500 feet above sea level. Ship commanders considered the actions provocative and inconsistent with international agreements, prompting the ship to issue several radio queries and warnings.
