Putin Poised to Retaliate Against
Obama by Trashing Iran Deal

Daily Beast, by Josh Rogin

Now that the U.S.-Russia relationship has broken down, Moscow could throw a wrench into the teetering nuclear negotiations with Iran.The escalating tensions between Washington and Moscow, brought to fever by the MH17 airliner disaster, are finally to the point where they threaten to spoil the number one item on President Obama’s foreign policy agenda: the nuclear talks with Iran. The man doing the threatening is Russian President Vladimir Putin.Earlier this week, Putin promised to retaliate against the United States for new sanctions targeting his friends and business associates, as well as large Russian defense, energy, and financial firms. On Thursday,

Internationally Obama has assured himself a place in History as the most feckless and ineffective President America has ever elected.

What more evidence do you need to decide Obama is either completely incompetent and unfit for the office he holds or he is purposefully creating chaos in order to do what his mentors could not manage to do and that is to destroy this country. He is creating a vulnerability here and abroad that Russia or China could manipulate to their favor. He has created the perfect storm for our enemies. The country is lurching from one crisis to the next. He has decimated the military. He has invited an invasion by the third world. He has destroyed our economy. He has driven a wedge deep into race relations. Scariest of all, I don´t believe he is finished and we have no one in Washington with the courage and moral authority to challenge him effectively. God help us.

Only in Obama´s mind would there have been a valid agreement with Iran. Iran runs on taqiyya fumes, which means they lie about everything to advance Islam. Obama truly believes that when a Middle Eastern head of state or mullah gives his word, it is going to be kept.

There was never going to be an "Iran deal" which Iranians had any intention of abiding by. That is why Obama is so dangerous -- he believes these people. But when it comes to our allies, there is no trust. Comforting, isn´t it?

When you think of how many Muslims are in high places in his Administration and his Agencies, or are relatives or spouses of same, you know this man isn´t right for American interests - right after his Marxism, he is a Muslim sympathizer. Remember his comment that "America is not a Christian nation"? That wasn´t an offhand remark; it was a telegraphed love note to Muslim countries and Muslim leaders.

Am I paranoid? It´s not paranoia when people really are out to get you. In this case, people in high places really are out to get America.

We could cripple Russia through monetary sanctions and access to our markets. We could provide "offensive" weaponry to Ukraine. Will we? I assume people are trying to twist Obama´s arm at Camp David today. I doubt if he´ll listen.

# 11, you´re statement about Iran´s lies could just as easily have been: Obama runs on taqiyya, which means he lies about everything to advance Obama.

Obama´s extension of the nuclear weapons talks with Iran without reimposing sanctions is clear signal that Iran has defeated the US. For the next 4 months Iran will continue enriching uranium for its weapons program while freely exporting oil and other goods to help its finances and economy. At the same time, Obama will be reducing our military while imposing growth crippling regulations, especially ObamaCare, on us. In late November, Obama & his court jester, Kerry, will either announce another extension of the talks or agree to a totally meaningless agreement with Iran. Either way, the Iranians will have outsmarted the person who proclaimed himself to be the smartest president ever. It´s win, win for Iran, lose lose for the US, Israel and the civilized world.

#8 many of us say a prayer of thanks every day that GW Bush was in office at that time. Although we don´t always see eye to eye; he was greatly admired. GW spoke to US in times of crisis, he cared as much for our military as we, and he actually LIKED us as Americans. With GW we did not find it necessary to awake each morning to read and learn that he had once more done something to poke us in the eye. The constant watchdog scenarios is becoming might old on WTP side of the fence. This, few of US are paid to do. Few have the time

Another prayerful thought...thank you for a GW Bush win over Al Gore.

I don´t know why Russia is part of the so-called P5+1 group negotiating with Iran. Unlike some members of the P5+1 group, Russia does not misrepresent Iran´s nuclear program as a nuclear weapons program to justify the decades-long attempt to stop it.

All of Obama´s smart negotiations have been a castle of cars. The missile defense system with pieces in the Czech Republic and Poland was real, but was dumped by Obama because it irritated the Russians. And he need the Russians to prop up the negotiations with Iran. Now the negotiations with Iran are collapsing because Iran has no intentions of giving up their nukes, but he needs to avoid sanctions for Russia to keep the charade plausible. The castle of cards is only for the US voters. Internationally, everyone knows that he isn´t going to stop Russian invasions or Iran getting nukes.

Let us not forget Obama´s whispered "encouragement" caught on open mic to Medvedev 3/2012: "This is my last election; after my election I´ll have more flexibility."

Can you really imagine if that were GWB (or any Republican, for that matter) in 2012 that every news outlet and pundit would be dragging that statement out of the archives?

The Peanuts character Pigpen comes to mind... he´s quite comfortable and happy in his own self-created mess.

I loved Mark Levin´s rendition of phone calls between Bibi Netanyahu and Obama. Priceless. He also spent time in his latest show pointing out that a GOP takeover of the Senate especially with Mitch McConnell as leader would simply prolong the time the RINO´s are able to blunt the tea party from achieving necessary reforms. The Chamber of Commerce which has funded both parties is threatening to withdraw support for the GOP unless they continue to call the shots. In the immortal words of George Bush "Bring it On" That would be helpful overall.

The writer is trying very hard to blame Putin for the Obama/Kerry failures in negotiations with Iran.

A good outcome from those negotiations may have been impossible. Maybe no one could have done better but I refuse to blame Putin in advance.

It wasn´t Putin who made the US sign a deal releasing billions of $$ to Iran. Putin didn´t make us drop sanctions. Putin didn´t ensure we got nothing of substance in return.

I hope we are not on the path to war. If we are, however, and if #11´s assessment is correct, then this would provide an opportunity for an American President and Bibi to team up and take out the Iranian nuke capability.

If only America had a President.

In keeping with #2´s take: Putin would not make such a move unless he were certain that America does not have a President.

Sen Feinstein suggests we are back into the Cold War era with Russia. Just idiotic scare tactics from one of the Leftist loons. The problem is that Putin has no respect for Obama and will do as he wishes. The Eu is beholden to him as they depend on Russia for fuel supplies. There are many avenues the U>S> could take to strengthen our hand but
Obama is too incompetent to use any of them.
In fact, he has, is, and will take steps to do just the opposite, weaken the U>S> in every way possible. My opinion.

Qua speech, Barack Obama’s address Wednesday on the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria was surprisingly terrible: a disorganized mess, insincere and unconvincing. To appreciate just how bad and bizarre it was, compare the president’s speech announcing a new air campaign in Iraq and Syria to Dwight Eisenhower’s 1958 statement on his decision to intervene in Lebanon with 14,000—14,000!—troops. The statement contains no chest-thumping about America’s leadership in science and medicine. No pivot to the auto industry and medical research. Eisenhower simply explained what had been done, and why.

With his address to the nation Wednesday evening, President Obama revealed that he is a leader in deep denial about the threat the United States faces, and about the steps that are necessary to deal with it. In his remarks, Obama offered up a series of delusions, each of which point to the ultimate defeat of the United States in the war he has embarked upon. Delusion #1: Obama still thinks ISIS is the JV team. Here’s how he began his speech: We can’t erase every trace of evil from the world, and small groups of killers have the capacity to do great harm.

I know a lot of people are giddy at the prospect of Republicans taking the Senate this November, but that’s becoming less and less likely. It’s not because Democrats are rallying around a particular mission or set of candidates; it’s because Republicans and conservatives aren’t. It seems like I’m always writing on issues no one wants to hear are mistakes, such as messaging or social issues. But I don’t care. These things have to be said. If these columns are received like a gaseous cousin on a long car trip through the desert, so be it. Crack a window… If things continue on their current course, the GOP will not retake the Senate.

It was once said, “religion is designed to comfort the afflicted and to afflict the comfortable.” Jesus’ parables – short stories with moral lessons – were likewise designed to afflict, to draw us in but leave us uncomfortable. These teachings can be read as being about divine love and salvation, sure. But, their first listeners – first century Jews in Galilee and Judea – heard much more challenging messages. Only when we hear the parables as Jesus’ own audience did can we fully experience their power and find ourselves surprised and challenged today. Here are four examples of Jesus’ teachings that everybody gets wrong: 1.

The man who jumped the White House railing Sept. 19 deserves the right to live in President Barack Obama’s home, just as the president is allowing hundreds of thousands of border-jumping Central Americans to live in Americans’ homeland, says a new tongue-in-cheek petition posted at the White House website. “We urge President Obama to immediately and publicly recognize that Mr. Omar J. Gonzalez, an oppressed migrant, was merely looking for a better life when he entered the White House after going over the classist, divisive and needless fence,” says the petition, which was authored by D.A. King, founder of the Georgia-based

Note: Read the Hillary Clinton-Saul Alinsky Letters here. Previously unpublished correspondence between Hillary Clinton and the late left-wing organizer Saul Alinsky reveal new details about her relationship with the controversial Chicago activist and shed light on her early ideological development. Clinton met with Alinsky several times in 1968 while writing a Wellesley college thesis about his theory of community organizing. Clinton’s relationship with Alinsky, and her support for his philosophy, continued for several years after she entered Yale law school in 1969, two letters obtained by the Washington Free Beacon show.

He was a leading figure in one of the biggest climate change marches to date. But it seems Robert F Kennedy Jr was not so forthcoming when it came to questions about his own carbon footprint. Confronted by a reporter asking if he would give up his phone and car, the environmental lawyer became visibly irate before grabbing the microphone and accusing her of ´destroying democracy´ as a member of the press. The interview in New York yesterday afternoon started with a conversation about the number of flyers produced for the event, which Kennedy Jr claimed was necessary to garner ´people power´.

When Anthony Weiner’s mayoral campaign imploded last year amid new sexting revelations, the fallout buffeted his wife, longtime Hillary Clinton aide Huma Abedin. Clinton’s inner circle was furious with Weiner, and Abedin’s role with Hillary was said to be in doubt. “Huma has a choice to make,” New York magazine quoted a “close associate” of Abedin’s as saying. “Does she go with Anthony, or does she go with Hillary?” The magazine described Abedin as “traumatized” by the prospect of leaving the inner sanctum. One year later, Abedin’s marriage to Weiner appears intact, and her role in Hillary’s camp is secure. As Clinton’s personal chief

The forecast is for people, and lots of them. The People’s Climate March is expected to bring more than 100,000 people who want to save the planet to the city Sunday. The march to address climate change, billed as the largest in history, is occurring two days before President Obama and world leaders attend a summit dealing with the same issue at the United Nations. U.N. Secretary General Ban Ki-moon — who has fought passionately against global warming — along with celebrities, CEOs and activists are expected to descend on the city for the massive event.
