The October Surprise
PJ Media, by Michael Ledeen

Original Article

Posted By:StormCnter, 10/21/2012 5:02:56 AM

The New York Times reports (and the White House denies) that “The United States and Iran have agreed for the first time to one-on-one negotiations over Iran’s nuclear program, according to Obama administration officials, setting the stage for what could be a last-ditch diplomatic effort to avert a military strike on Iran.” Two of the three assertions in that lead paragraph are demonstrably false. One-on-one negotiations have been going on for years (most recently, according to my friend “Reza Kahlili,” in Doha, where, he was told, Valerie Jarrett and other American officials recently traveled for the latest talks).

I think Obama has been talking to Iran directly for along time,forget the back channel crap.There's too many Islamists counting on Iran to destroy Israel and a deal with the west would look extremely bad on the mullahs.
I mean that wouldn't stop Obama from striking a phoney deal for the election but he's still in their corner in a macro sense.

Allowing inspectors in would be a fool's mission but it would be a likely part of a deal.

Does anyone else find it disturbing to think of Valerie Jarrett "representing" the interests if the United States in talks with Iran?

Exactly, 2 -- what business does Valerie Jarrett have representing the US?

Ambassadors have to go through security clearance and confirmation. All we know about her is that she's a Chicago slum lord.

If he can only get re-elected, the iranians will have the time they need to finish making the bomb and sending at least one or two to Israel. Don't even want to think where the rest will be headed.
I wonder. When history is written, will obama be portrayed as the chamberlain of the USA or as the puppet for our enemies?

I can't imagine Valerie leaving Obama's side long enough to go to talks. She goes everywhere with him to make sure he follows the Party line. Afterall, he did sign on the dotted line and joined The New Party,(The Communist Party of Chicago) when he was a Community Organizer. Her father in law was a member of the Chicago Communist Party. Why didn't she have to get National Security clearance in order to see all of our National secrets. I don't like this picture. She answers to no one. He answers to her.

Well, well, well. Real information from someone who knows, who actually participated in talks with Iran. In the mid-1980s.

As Ledeen says, this talk about an agreement has been going on for some time. Condi Rice and Nicholas Burns were left holding the bag in New York , waiting for "the plane to leave Tehran" to bring the Iranians to the U.N. for the signing ceremony. Never happened. In 2006.

So Obie and his minions try a last ditch pre-election attempt to bamboozle us with this nothingburger "leak" on secret negotiations involving Iranian-American Valerie Jarrett.

As Ledeen opines,

So what is happening? The most likely explanation is that Obama is still desperately seeking his grand bargain, the one that would validate his (and the Nobel Committee’s) claim to be a talented peace maker. That deal is not available, because the Iranians don’t want it. But he wants something to show for his efforts, so he settled for a big nothingburger: an agreement to talk some more.

ValJarJarBinks is probably letting Ahmadinejad know that after the election Hussein will have more flexibility. If anyone close to Mitt is reading this, please implore him to ask Hussein (in tomorrow's foreign policy debate) what he meant when he whispered to Medvedev (and it was picked up on an open mic) to assure Putin that "after the election I will have more flexibility". That is absolutely one of the scariest, most traitorous things I have ever heard, and nobody is talking about it.

I find it "very" disturbing that valerie jarret the iranian is neogotiating for the U. S. of A.

First she was NEVER assigned the job by the Senate and the House -- AND -- she's a woman. The islamist don't like to deal with women. Okay for "qualified women -- like Condi" -- but this one was never confirmed as our representative. Of course hillary's in Peru working on woman's issues -- so I guess they had to send someone....

Talk about pathetic....no wonder the islamist fools are moving on US -- they see US as WEAK...

I trust Team R already know about this but, Joe didn't seem to know there had been congressional testimony under oath the day before his big debate performance, which completely contradicted his claims during his debate, so....

Really makes you wonder what plans he has with Vladimir. Is ValJar already on that one too?!

Even if the mullahs agree to stop their enrichment program, WHY SHOULD WE BELIEVE THEM? Liars lie. Demons deceive. And muslim orcs rampage and destroy when ordered.

There's nothing more the lunatics in Iran would like better than to have the little man child re-elected. He wants to decimate our military, lead from behind, and put the US on equal footing with all the murderous regimes around the world, it's only "fair". The "professor" doesn't believe in peace through strength, because the chalkboard in the faculty lounge point towards peace through platitudes.

My vote on the "October Surprise" will be the lame duck Contressional session after the elections to push through ratification of treaties Obama HAS ALREADY SIGNED with the UN (Agenda 21) for gun control, energy control, control of the internet, control of our waterways... essentially turning over American sovereignty to the UN.

The House can't vote on ratification of treaties; the lame duck Senate can approve it and it will be law.

From Obama's point of view....if he loses the election, he can still tell himself he achieved his essential goal. It would be the perfect "in your face" parting gesture.

The only counter I can see to it is a House pledge to impeach each and every Senator who votes for any of the sections of Agenda 21.

But then, he might not lose despite the polls... The UN has offered to oversee and ratify the vote in each of the States. The Republican governors will refuse, of course...but are there enough small states with Democrat governors to overcome the popular vote in the Electoral College?

Brilliant strategy by VJ - having spent the past 4 years telling everyone that Iran isn't a problem she now thinks the rumor of "talks" will turn the tide of the election.

1. Those who are going to vote for Obama don't care because they don't think it is a problem - maybe I should have stopped after "think".
2. Those who understand the problem know that whatever the Obama administration will do as far as national security will be to diminish it not strengthen it. These individuals are not voting for Obama come hades or high water.
3. The undecideds who don't think and don't know who to vote for who will break Obama's way just because of "talks" with Iran can be counted on one hand.

Look for Obama to make some sort of announcement during the debate thinking that he will knock Romney off his stride and make news. But whatever Obama says, does not make it true, substantial, or in the long-term interests of the USA. Obama has been claiming that he has wanted to talk with the Iranians since before he was elected. The Iranians have one mission in mind, obtain a nuclear weapon.

The NY sting of the bombers by the FBI with an after thought to say he wanted to "hit" obama first didn't bring any excitement and very little news coverage, the Lybia incident has backfired (and read Larry Sinclair's article) so now we are going to hear he has signed an agreement with Iran for them to stop nuclear enrichment by lifting sanctions (temporarily) to just cover the election time, the polls showing him in a huge lead--pollsters want to save face by actually trying to get closer to what the outcome will be, his entire administration lying every time they flap their jaws, the journ-O-Liars slightly turning on him-----nothing is giving him the desired effects of being in the lead to be re-elected. Even Crowley's help with the last debate was seen as a smoke screen.
What's next? Almost forgot, bomb threat at Sidwell School didn't get much life span in media coverage.

Obama sends a Chicago slum lord to negotiate with Iran ??
Apparently Jeremiah Wright and
Louis Farrakhan were unavailable.
May 2008 Obama dismissed Iran as a threat
to the US because it's a " tiny " country.
"I mean think about it. Iran, Cuba, Venezuela,
these countries are tiny
compared to the Soviet Union.
They don't pose a serious threat to us the way the Soviet Union posed a threat to us.."
July 2007
"I would [be willing to meet separately, without precondition, during the first year of my administration ... with the leaders of Iran, Syria, Venezuela, Cuba and North Korea ".
Hopefully , it's finally dawning on some voters that Obama doesn't know what the heck he's talking about .
On anything .
Since 2007 ,Obama has been all over the place on Iran ( and every other subject ) -taking one position and they contradicting it
the next day and
then taking another foolish position and then contradicting that and on and on and on.
The mother of all flip floppers and failures is Barack Obama.

Who is that ghostly figure still hovering in the shadows at the 0bama's WH but, ''Valarie Jarret?!!'' ...Trick or treat time? But I digress.

Parse, ''negotiations.'' Considering the history of recent, 'negotiations,' in that region, it does not mean much. ...Certainly not any results regarding demonstrable respect for life, liberty, the pursuit of happiness, ''peace and tranquility,'' respect for private property for each individual, much less any, ''good will to all,'' eh?

Obama's open-mike statement to Medvedev was pure treason. The only thing that has kept the Cold War cold since 1945 was our offensive and defensive missile superiority. Ronald Reagan figured out when to play the final ace and the house of Russia came tumbling down. Russia's greatest goal concerning the U.S. is to eliminate that missile superiority and Obama means to give it to them. There is no quid pro quo for us, he is simply surrendering to Marxism.

As for Iran, they are nothing but an annoying flea without nuclear weapons capability. That is the only thing they have to negotiate with and they are allegedly negotiating with an Iranian who has a tight hold on Obama's short hairs. We simply can not let that happen.

Easter 2014: A celebration of hope
Fox News, by Rev. Dr. James B. Lemler    Original Article

Over 2 billion people are celebrating Easter today, April 20, as the calendars of Western and Eastern churches coincide this year, and these billions of faithful people are celebrating HOPE. The Easter message begins with the hopeful news that death has been overcome by life, that hatred has been overcome by love, and that sorrow has been overcome by joy. The elements of the story involve women arriving at a garden tomb and finding it empty, but even better, meeting the risen Lord, the embodiment of life and love. Their lives are changed forever and so are the lives of many, many

Chocolatiers love a holiday, be it Christmas, Valentine’s Day, or Easter. The French version of the Easter Bunny is Easter Bells (les cloches de Pâques)—which allegedly fly to Rome for a few days before the holiday to be blessed by the Pope before returning with chocolate eggs for the kids. But you don’t have to hunt very far to find French chocolate and pastry shop windows full of Easter eggs all trying to out-cute, out-class, or simply out-design one another. Good-looking pastries and other sweets are a modestly priced pleasure in France. But like fashion designers, French patissiers and chocolatiers

Say Goodbye to Taiwan

WHAT ARE the implications for Taiwan of China’s continued rise? Not today. Not next year. No, the real dilemma Taiwan will confront looms in the decades ahead, when China, whose continued economic growth seems likely although not a sure thing, is far more powerful than it is today. Contemporary China does not possess significant military power; its military forces are inferior, and not by a small margin, to those of the United States. Beijing would be making a huge mistake to pick a fight with the American military nowadays. China, in other words, is constrained by the present global balance

The immediate "crisis" portion of the standoff involving the federal Bureau of Land Management (BLM) and Nevada rancher Cliven Bundy over his cattle grazing on federal land ended last week. Whether this will be end of Bundy´s troubles with the BLM, who have been in court with him over his refusal to pay fees to them for decades, remains to be seen, with the Bundys reporting that they´ve received registered mail from the BLM this week that they haven´t opened yet. I blogged about a lot of the factual background of the conflict here, with links to some relevant court documents. This story

That was quite a victory dance President Obama did Thursday while claiming Obamacare is “working” because eight million people have now supposedly signed up for the health care program. He even indulged in some less-than-subtle mockery of Republicans - and by extension the majority of Americans who have disapproved of Obamacare since before it became law. "The repeal debate is and should be over,” Obama said, taking a dig at Republicans who are “going through, you know, the stages of grief … anger and denial and all that stuff …” But a president who is viewed by most Americans as less

WASHINGTON — Daniel Swalm was researching his family when he came across a disturbing episode in immigration history. That discovery would lead to a move in the U.S. Senate to apologize for action the nation took more than a century ago. Swalm discovered that under an obscure 1907 law, his grandmother Elsie, born and raised in Minnesota, was stripped of her U.S. citizenship after marrying an immigrant from Sweden. Swalm had never heard of the Expatriation Act that required a U.S.-born woman who married a foreigner to "take the nationality of her husband." Swalm, who lives in Minneapolis, found out about the law

This “Open Letter to the Friends of Ukraine,” by a guest columnist who writes under the pen name of Irina Gokieli, dated April 19, offers the author’s pessimistic scenario of forthcoming events in what Vladimir Putin now calls “NewRussia.” “NewRussia” encompasses southeastern Ukraine and parts of Moldova. She predicts an invasion by regular Russian troops near the end of the first week of May under the pretext of restoring order, although she does not rule out, as an alternative, an alliance of Putin with certain Ukrainian politicians and oligarchs. Notably the author makes a persuasive case that the long-term consequences

For Hillary Clinton, having her own baby grandchild to kiss on the campaign trail, could be one of the biggest boosts to her possible presidential election campaign. Although the former Secretary of State and First Lady has not said if she will run in 2016, the arrival of her first grandchild will soften her image, analysts have said. While Chelsea only revealed her pregnancy on Thursday, supporters of her mother have already started cooing over a possible baby in the White House. With the Clintons having a near-royal status in the U.S., the announcement of a new arrival due this fall has sent

GREENSBORO, Ga. — Golf holes the size of pizzas. Soccer balls on the back nine. A mulligan on every hole. These are some of the measures — some would say gimmicks — that golf courses across the country have experimented with to stop people from quitting the game. Golf has always reveled in its standards and rich tradition. But increasingly a victim of its own image and hidebound ways, golf has lost five million players in the last decade, according to the National Golf Foundation, with 20 percent of the existing 25 million golfers apt to quit in the next few years. People under 35 have especially spurned the game, saying it takes too

In a speech earlier this week, Lisa O. Monaco, President Barack Obama’s assistant for homeland security and counterterrorism, insisted that American parents must be vigilant because their “confrontational” children could be on the verge of becoming terrorists. Monaco’s full, prepared text is available here. She presented the speech, entitled “Countering Violent Extremism and the Power of Community,” at Harvard University’s Kennedy School of Government on April 15. Monaco began her remarks by eloquently describing the lives tragically lost last year during the Boston Marathon bombings. Interestingly, the Harvard grad failed to mention the religion or the motive of brothers Dzhokhar and Tamerlan

Hi, everybody. For millions of Americans, this time of year holds great meaning. Earlier this week, we hosted a Passover Seder at the White House, and joined Jewish families around the world in their re-tellings of the story of the Exodus and the victory of faith over oppression. And this Sunday, Michelle, Malia, Sasha, and I will join our fellow Christians around the world in celebrating the Resurrection of Christ, the salvation he offered the world, and the hope that comes with the Easter season. These holy days have their roots in miracles that took place long ago. And yet, they still inspire us, guide us, and strengthen us today. They remind us of our

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said Thursday that a family of dissident ranchers and their supporters in his home state of Nevada are ´domestic terrorists,´ citing this week´s standoff with the federal government´s Bureau of Land Management. Cliven Bundy has refused to pay grazing fees for land where his hundreds of cattle roam every day. The land is owned by the federal government, which says he owes more than $1 million. Bundy, however, insists that since his family has been using the land since the 1870s, Uncle Sam can´t collect the grazing fees. A tense standoff developed this week after
