Hillary Revising History of Her Iran
Sanctions Role, Senator Claims

ABC News, by Ali Weinberg

Original Article

Posted By:JoniTx, 5/15/2014 5:49:47 PM

Hillary Clinton is exaggerating her role in imposing sanctions on Iran when she was Secretary of State in what one Republican said today was a “blatant revision of history.” Sen. Mark Kirk, R-Ill., made the accusation a day after Clinton told the American Jewish Committee Wednesday night about her efforts to get U.N. sanctions on Iran in response to Iran’s nuclear program. “I worked for months to round-up the votes [in the UN Security Council],” Clinton said. “In the end we were successful… And then building on the framework established by the Security Council, with the help of Congress, the Obama administration imposed some of the

Ex-president´s role limited
in grandson´s campaign
Associated Press, by Christina A. Cassidy    Original Article
Posted By: JoniTx- 6/8/2014 6:05:02 PM     Post Reply
PLAINS, Ga.— Inside a small Baptist church packed with out-of-state visitors wanting to hear from former President Jimmy Carter, one the most eager listeners may have been his grandson, Jason. The message of this Sunday school lesson centered on the importance of prayer when negotiating Middle East peace and balancing the daily threat of the Cold War. As Jason Carter heads into a fierce campaign for governor this year against incumbent Republican Nathan Deal, it was a relevant message from someone whose counsel he says he values. "He never compromised his faith," the younger Carter said afterward of the 39th

GUANTANAMO BAY NAVAL BASE, Cuba - Some of the men held here for more than a decade have been drafting plans for work and marriage on the outside or studying languages, preparing for a not-too-distant future beyond the coiled razor wire that surrounds the U.S. prison perched at the edge of the Caribbean Sea.Until the past week, they had good reason to believe their ticket out might be imminent, if not home then at least to another country. President Barack Obama and others in the administration say they are committed to closing the Guantanamo detention center and military officials say

Bowe Bergdahl Reportedly Declines

According to one U.S. official. Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl has declined to speak with his family by phone after five years in the captivity of Taliban forces. The report, which came Sunday from Wall Street Journal, also quotes the unnamed official as saying that doctors at a U.S. military hospital in Germany are treating Bergdahl slowly due to the firestorm of controversy surrounding his name stateside. More from the WSJ: While he spent five years in captivity after being captured by Afghan insurgents in 2009, Sgt. Bergdahl doesn’t yet want to talk to his family on the phone, the official

Hailey, Idaho- The FBI is investigating threats against the parents of Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl, the latest development in a case that has put the spotlight on the circumstances surrounding his capture in Afghanistan and release by the Taliban. "We are working jointly with our state and local partners and taking each threat seriously," FBI Special Agent William Facer told CNN in an e-mail on Saturday. Facer declined to detail the nature and severity of the threats, and a military spokesperson for the Bergdahls declined to comment. Bergdahl´s parents have not been seen publicly since the announcement last week that

Kerry Dismisses Released Taliban’s
Promise To Rejoin Fight: ‘I Just

Secretary of State John Kerry awkwardly dismissed a declaration by released Taliban commander Noorullah Noori that he would return to jihad after 13 years in captivity at Guantanamo Bay, telling CNN’s Elise Labott it was “propaganda” and “a lot of baloney.” Labott interviewed Kerry on Sunday from a ritzy French chateau, with soft piano music ringing gently in the background. She asked the secretary whether he agreed with National Security Advisor Susan Rice’s contention last week that Army Sgt. and likely deserter Bowe Bergdahl “served with honor and distinction.” “There’s plenty of time for people to sort

Obama and Hillary: pioneers of

Daniel Greenfield has put his finger on an important strategic dimension of politics today, as exemplified by the careers of Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton. Both have accomplished little in their jobs, and have created serious problems, yet both enjoy continuing enthusiastic support from a large core group. Greenfield calls it “post-achievement politics,” and he is correct. Obama and Hillary don´t just suffer from a shortage of accomplishments. They´re also burdened with a surplus of failures. Benghazi worries so many Hillary supporters because there is nothing to balance it against. There is no, "But look at all the good she

PARIS- Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl has told people treating him at a U.S. military medical facility in Germany that he was tortured, beaten and held in a cage by his Taliban captors in Afghanistan after he tried to escape, a senior U.S. official said Sunday. The official spoke on condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to discuss what Bergdahl has revealed about the conditions of his captivity. The official said it was difficult to verify the accounts Bergdahl has given since his release a week ago. Bergdahl, now 28, was captured in June 2009 after he disappeared from his

Valerie Gatto does not want to talk about abortion. That’s probably prudent, inasmuch as she very much desires to be the next Miss USA, and contestants in that pageant are expected to have ruthlessly anodyne interests along the lines of reading children’s literature to blind dolphins. But she is admirably direct, even bracing, about the aspect of her life that intersects that troublesome issue: She was conceived when her mother, a teenager at the time, was attacked on the streets of Pittsburgh and raped at knifepoint. Asked by a radio interviewer about whether her mother had considered abortion, Miss Gatto

Obama to free Gitmo terrorist
‘because he took up yoga’

If you thought President Obama’s release of five top Taliban commanders in exchange for POW Bowe Bergdahl was bad, wait until you see what his Gitmo parole board plans. Desperate to empty the Guantanamo Bay prison by the end of his term, Obama quietly is giving “get out of jail free” cards for the flimsiest of excuses. One al Qaeda suspect captured in Afghanistan is considered reformed because he took up yoga and read a biography of the Dalai Lama. Another is eligible for release because of his “positive attitude.” And one longtime detainee, a former bodyguard for Osama bin

The Rev. Al Sharpton warned the candidates battling for a hotly contested congressional seat to stop talking about race. “I think it is dangerous for the community if we end up dividing black and brown people rather than deal with the real issues in the district,” Sharpton told the Daily News Saturday. “If this ends up in a tribal war where people choose sides based on race rather than who can do the best job, I think we do a disservice to the community.” Sharpton called on incumbent Rep. Charles Rangel and challenger state Sen. Adriano Espaillat to stop invoking

Here comes Hillapalooza. Hillary Clinton will be here, there and everywhere with the official release Tuesday of her new memoir, “Hard Choices” — unleashing a frenzy of speculation about her 2016 plans. The former secretary of state, senator and First Lady kicks it all off Monday night with a prime-time interview on ABC. The face-to-face with Diane Sawyer ramps up an ultraorchestrated PR blitz that’s not just a mega-book tour, but a chance for Clinton to burnish her brand and position herself for a possible second presidential campaign.

WASHINGTON — Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl has told medical officials that his captors locked him in a metal cage in total darkness for weeks at a time as punishment for trying to escape, and while military doctors say he now is physically able to travel he is not yet emotionally ready for the pressures of reuniting with his family, according to American officials who have been briefed on his condition. Sergeant Bergdahl, who was released last Saturday to American commandos in Afghanistan in exchange for five Taliban detainees held at Guantánamo Bay, Cuba, remains in a military hospital in Germany without

Forget about Barack Obama’s ultra-liberal policies — should Americans now be worried about the mental health of the current occupant of the White House? That was the alarming suggestion Fox Business Network viewers heard Tuesday evening. Talking about the bewildering decision to trade five “high risk” Taliban leaders for Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl on Lou Dobbs Tonight, psychologist Dr. Gina Loudon said she has become “very, very concerned” that President Obama has become “irrational, erratic and perhaps not exactly what we might want to deem sane.” [Video and transcript after the jump.] Host Lou Dobbs asked Loudon about the case of U.S.

A new study that tested the willingness of drivers to stop for people depending on their race has shown up some disconcerting conclusions. Portland State University-based Oregon Transportation Research and Education Consortium (OTREC) had six men - three black and three white - of similar age and build and dressed in identical ´neutral´ outfits cross the same street in Portland at separate intervals. The street had a crosswalk that was not governed by traffic lights, leaving the onus to stop with the driver, according to The Huffington Post. Trained observers watched the study out of sight from the traffic and

Democratic strategist and former Clinton-campaign manager Donna Brazile said this morning that veterans accusing recently returned Sergeant Bowe Bergdahl of desertion are part of a “PR campaign by Republicans.” After fellow panelist Ana Navarro noted that members of Bergdahl’s unit had consistently expressed concerns about the circumstances of his capture, Brazile said it was an effort to “muddy the waters” surrounding the prisoner deal. Quickly criticized for the comment by her fellow panelists on CNN, she said that she’d never impugn the testimony of a veteran, but stood by her comments. “That’s all they do . . . all they do

California Chrome flamed out in his bid for Triple Crown glory Saturday — and then his irate co-owner launched verbal bombs at the competition. The high drama at the 146th Belmont Stakes began with California Chrome finishing in a dead heat for fourth and ended with a shocking rant by outspoken co-owner Steve Coburn. The cowboy hat-wearing Coburn took aim at the winner Tonalist for cherry-picking races — sitting out the first two legs of the Triple Crown before competing at the Belmont. “That’s the coward’s way out,” he fumed. “It’s not fair to these horses that have been in the game since

President Obama was caught on camera chewing gum during the D-Day ceremonies in France as Queen Elizabeth II was welcomed, and Twitter feeds worldwide exploded with criticism. “Obama and his chewing-gum. Classy” one French user tweeted sarcastically. “Not very elegant, the Obama attitude in the middle of the ceremony,” another user said, while yet another added, “Is there anyone who will ask Barack Obama to stop chewing on his gum like a cowboy?” The words “shameful” and “vulgar” were thrown around as social media networks lit up with outrage at Mr. Obama’s display. “Obama do you want a Coke too while chewing gum while

Progressive hero Noam Chomsky is terrified of the surveillance state that has developed during the tenure of President Barack Obama, calling it a grave threat to our fundamental civil liberties. In a column published Monday, Chomsky writes that the documents revealed to the public by Edward Snowden show a system that is flagrantly violating the principles of the Constitution. “It is of no slight import that the project is being executed in one of the freest countries in the world, and in radical violation of the U.S. Constitution’s Bill of Rights, which protects citizens from ‘unreasonable searches and seizures,’ and

Bowe Bergdahl as an American who had ´served the United States with honor and distinction.´ Rice waded once again into controversy with comments on ABC´s Sunday morning news program ´This Week,´ setting off an immediate firestorm among Americans who had already learned that Bergdahl was no ordinary hostage overseas.

Hi, everybody. This is commencement season, a time for graduates and their families to celebrate one of the greatest achievements of a young person’s life. But for many graduates, it also means feeling trapped by a whole lot of student loan debt. And we’ve got to do more to lift that burden. See, in a 21st century economy, the surest pathway into the middle class is some form of higher education. The unemployment rate for workers with a bachelor’s degree is just 3.3 percent — about half what it is for high school graduates. The typical graduate of a four-year college earns $15,000 more per year than someone with just a high school degree.

U.S. fertility is not recovering from the financial crisis — and demographers aren’t sure why. The fertility rate fell to a record low 62.9 births per 1,000 women aged 15-44 in 2013, according to the National Center for Health Statistics. The total number of births, at 3.96 million, inched up by a mere 4,000 from 2012, the first increase since the financial crisis. But the total fertility rate, or TFR, the average number of children a woman would have during her child-bearing years, fell to just 1.86, the lowest rate in 27 years. TFR is considered the best metric of

What happens when the world’s greatest spin doctor commits malpractice — on himself? That is the question that now bedevils Barack Obama after what have been, without a doubt, the worst weeks of his presidency.From the Veterans Administration scandal to the jaw-dropping events surrounding the swap of Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl, the man with the most remarkable intuitive grasp of how to preserve and enhance his own image the world has ever seen has now tarnished it almost beyond recognition.Who would have expected such a development? From the speech in 2004 that made him a rising star through the campaign in 2008
