Putin Poised to Retaliate Against
Obama by Trashing Iran Deal

Daily Beast, by Josh Rogin

Original Article

Posted By:Flyright, 7/19/2014 7:59:38 AM

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.

David Cameron vows to defeat ISIS

UK Prime Minister David Cameron said Saturday that the death of British aid worker Alan Henning at the hands of ISIS was "absolutely abhorrent" and "unforgivable." Britain must work with its allies to do "everything it can" to defeat ISIS in the region and at home, he said. "What we see with this organization is there´s no level of depravity to which they will not sink. No appeals made any difference," he said.

The huge cyberattack on JPMorgan Chase that touched more than 83 million households and businesses was one of the most serious computer intrusions into an American corporation. But it could have been much worse.Questions over who the hackers are and the approach of their attack concern government and industry officials. Also troubling is that about nine other financial institutions — a number that has not been previously reported — were also infiltrated by the same group of overseas hackers, according to people briefed on the matter.

Behind the rotten culture is arrogance. After uniformed officers failed to take out 42-year-old Omar J. Gonzalez when he hopped over the fence and ran into the White House, the Secret Service issued a statement saying the officers “showed restraint.” The statement provoked laughter among senior FBI officials. But in its arrogance, the Secret Service thought it could get away with issuing such an outrageous claim and the public would accept it.With similar hubris, the agency leaves the doors to the White Horse unlocked. The idea is that the vaunted Secret Service can handle any problem and can waive the

Accountability: Turns out the Secret Service — which has one job to do — let a knife-wielding intruder all the way into the East Room of the White House. Can´t anyone in government do anything right these days? Time was when the Secret Service seemed an exemplar of professionalism and dedication, an agency with a focused mission and largely immune from the bureaucratic bumbling inherent to big government. In recent years, it´s seemed more like Animal House. The intruder blew past one guard and was stopped only by an off-duty officer. And this was one of hundreds of apparent security breaches.

Days before Iraqi Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi warned of terrorist plots on subways in New York City and Paris, a video emerged showing an ISIS shill named Farah Shirdon widening the scope of the threat. “God willing, we will make some attacks in New York soon,” he said in a video interview with Vice News last week. “A lot of brothers are mobilizing there right now.” He vowed that U.S.-based fighters are “mobilizing for a brilliant attack.”

Deadly, irrational, and determined, the intruder snuck across a weakened perimeter. Eluding capture, the intruder was detained only after missteps and close calls. The spin began soon after the threat was isolated. Information was selectively leaked. Half-truths and untruths were uttered. Responsibility was avoided; privileges and credentials asserted; authority reasserted. Trust us. Remain calm. Don’t panic. This is the template of recent events.

A presidential defeat isn’t an easy thing to bounce back from. And Mitt Romney did it twice. So it was understandable that after he lost the presidential race in 2012, he was adamant about closing the door to the possibility of a third campaign. But recently, speculation is whirling that Romney may not be so adamant anymore. When asked if he was running in a New York Times interview published earlier this week, Romney said : “I have nothing to add to the story. We’ve got a lot of people looking at the race,” he said. “We’ll see what happens.” That response, which

Meghan McCain joined the dog pile on the Secret Service this week, saying she’s had “nothing but horrible experiences" with the agency and likening the agents to “glorified mall cops.” The 29-year-old author and television personality, who is also the daughter of former GOP presidential candidate Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.), opened up on Pivot’s “TakePart Live” about some of her interactions with the Secret Service. "I have nothing but horrible experiences with the Secret Service,” McCain said. “One of my friends called them glorified mall cops and I don´t think that´s terribly far off. I found them cliquey. I hated

WASHINGTON — Representative Elijah E. Cummings of Maryland was at the grocery store the other day when he ran into an elderly black woman who expressed growing concern about President Obama’s safety. Why, she asked, wasn’t he being better protected by his Secret Service agents? The furor that led to this week’s resignation of the director of the Secret Service resonated deeply among blacks, outraged that those supposed to be guarding the first black president were somehow falling down on the job — and suspicious even without evidence that it may be deliberate. “It is something that is widespread in

ATLANTA — Texas, America’s second-most populous state behind California, saw 13 of its last abortion clinics turn away women on Friday, after a federal appeals court upheld a law that practically guarantees that only a handful of clinics will remain open in the state. The strictest-of-its-kind Texas law requires abortion providers to build hospital-grade facilities and obtain sometimes impossible-to-get hospital admitting privileges. After signed into law last year by Gov. Rick Perry (R), the law forced most of the 41 clinics operating to close. Thursday’s ruling wiped out a brief victory this summer for abortion rights proponents,

Go to a grocery store in California and buy all the milk, eggs and vegetables you want. But there’s one thing you won’t find at the checkout line, beginning July 1, 2015: Plastic bags to carry your stuff home. Gov.

Shoppers will be charged 10 cents for every paper bag and heavy-duty plastic bag they use. “This bill is a step in the right direction,” Brown said in a press release announcing his approval. “It

The hawkish Republican Sen. Lindsey Graham of South Carolina says he is thinking about running for president in 2016. In an interview with Stephen Hayes of the Weekly Standard, the senator, running for re-election to the Senate this year, said: “If I get through my general election, if nobody steps up in the presidential mix, if nobody’s out there talking — me and McCain have been talking — I may just jump in to get to make these arguments,” Graham said. Graham, 59, also dismissed Florida Sen. Marco Rubio, 43, as a presidential candidate, saying he is too young. “He’s a good

Obama said, "There is a reason fewer Republicans, you hear them running around about ObamaCare, cause while good affordable health care might seem like a fanged threat to the freedom of the American people on Fox News it turns out its working pretty well in the real world."
