Iranian Regime: Obama Sent Secret
Message Recognizing Our Nuclear Rights

Human Events, by Jim Hoft

Original Article

Posted By:ketchuplover, 10/22/2012 1:16:13 AM

Last week, Reza Kahlili, a former Revolutionary Guard member wrote that Iran had reached a deal with the Obama Administration to preserve portions of its nuclear program. Hossain Ebrahimi told reporters yesterday that Obama sent the regime a secret message. On Saturday, the Iranian regime confirmed this report. The Iranian regime revealed on Saturday that the Obama Administration sent them a secret message through the Swiss Embassy recognizing their nuclear rights. The Swiss government, acting through its Embassy in Tehran, serves as protecting power for U.S. interests in Iran.

Comments:
This would be unbelievable except for that microphone having picked up O's words to Medvedev last March about having more flexibility after he wins reelection. According to this report, he also apologized to Iran for having been forced by Congress to impose sanctions against them.

This is one heck of a surprise.
So that is what Jarrett and Obama have been up to.
Talk about throwing Israel and ourselves under the bus.

It also reeks of HillBilly when they allowed the N. Koreans to keep their nukes in exchange for food because the N. Koreans promised that they wouldn't use them for harmful purposes. I have no doubts that this admin would offer the same kind of deal with the Iranians.

Can you imagine if Roosevelt sent a secret message to Hitler that it is entitled to its nuclear rights? This is so wrong on many levels.

Some sort of bizarre peace deal with Iran wouldn't do them any good unless Obama lifted the sanctions also.Don't know how that would be received by people who aren't Obama backers who couldn't care less about the threat to Israel this would result in.

Our secret dealings with Iran apparently are real. And may already have O in a swamp. (Tar Baby can no longer be used.)

Nuclear rights could just mean peaceful reactors. That was never is dispute. But then why say it? And telling Iran you want to defy Congress but can't won't fly with Americans.

But can it get into the last debate. Half of Washington will be spinning furiously if this story can't be debunked.

The WH just bashed the NYT, they they might not be so happy to run cover again. But they will.

From the article (emphasis mine):

“. . . during the session to submit the message, the Swiss ambassador to Tehran quoted the US president as saying that ‘we (the US) recognize your nuclear rights’.”

. . . Swiss diplomat had also quoted Obama as saying that “I didn’t want to impose sanctions on your central bank but I had no options but to approve it since a Congress majority had approved the decision.”

That strikes me in the gut as treason. Will someone please put this in front of Mitt Romney’s eyes in time for the debate?

And what a damn shame it is that we don't know whom to believe, Iran or Obama and his administration.

This is debate material. How does it get brought up? Ask Romney a question and he answers "i would do x or y but never, ever, tell a rouge regime that is trying to develop nuclear weapons with the clearly stated goals of wiping out one of our allies that they have a 'nuclear right.'"

Watch the Won do a melt down.

Get elected.

Really, if I were Obama I would have a handy excuse for just cancelling right now.

I'm with 23..... This could be a mega setup for the debate tonight.

But if this is true, and Obama loses (which we all pray, trust, believe, and KNOW he will), imagine what he'll do in the 71 days between election day and Inauguration Day....

I hope every conservative legal foundation in America is gearing up to go on this. I know Landmark Legal is....

Right here: "The US letter follows threats by Iran last month to shut off the Strait of Hormoz – the world’s most important oil shipping lane – if new US and EU sanctions over its nuclear program halted Iranian oil exports."

Do you see what he's doing? He's bargaining with/begging a despot regime not to cut off our oil.

He doesn't want to be seen sending our military resources into the Straight Hormoz to keep the shipping lanes open. He knows the world runs on oil.

Not one peep out of FOX this morning about this. Why?

If it's not true, wouldn't the Swiss already be shouting it from the rooftops?

The Swiss are neutral, supposedly, in all things. They would logically be the one to carry the messages. So if it's not the truth, why wouldn't they be screaming at the top of their lungs?

FTA: "The source, who remains anonymous for security reasons and is highly placed in Iran’s regime, said that once Khamenei receives Obama’s guarantees, he will authorize an announcement by Iran on a solution to the nuclear crisis before the U.S. presidential elections"

WHOA, BHO is going to use this as a tool by which he wants to show us all that he is practicing "Good Foreign Polcy"?

We don't even have an "Embassy" in Iran.

This sounds flakey to me. Something is rotten in the Oval office.

Anti-Christ makes secret deals with world leaders, according to the Book of Revelation, and makes a public deal with Israel. Anti-Christ then betrays Israel, making war against Israel.

Insincere "Christians" and "Jews" side with Anti-Christ. Those who remain dedicated to the true God resist the Anti-Christ.

Our God is King of kings and Lord of lords, and, according to Romans 13, those who resist Him will receive to themselves damnation. God alone is the rightful ruler, and I take Romans 13 to refer primarily to Him. Peace and prosperity and the brotherhood of man would be the rule throughout the world if people's God-given rights were respected.

As for me and my household, we will serve the Lord.

Iran is not going to go out on a limb making a deal with a president who might be gone in 2013. Obama should know that. For him to offer any deal right now makes him look utterly weak and foolish in Iranian eyes; which is to say, he might very well have done so.

It does not matter what anyone says. The news media will elect Obama for another term. Our only hope is that ALL the republicans in this country get out and vote. Don't let anything keep you away from the voting booth this time. Please.

It's a shame that the issue of Iran's "nuclear rights" has to be debated.

It's axiomatic that Iran, by virtue of its sovereignty, has "nuclear rights."

Even the NPT explicitly acknowleges that self-evident truth when it states, in Article IV, that: "Nothing in this Treaty shall be interpreted as affecting the inalienable right of all the Parties to the Treaty to develop research, production and use of nuclear energy for peaceful purposes without discrimination and in conformity with Articles I and II of this Treaty."

That's the inconvenient truth that has to be confronted by people trying to derail Iran's nuclear program.

I remember last year or so that obama sent out people to test what the reaction was going to be from the public "so what if Iran has nuclear weapons, they are not going to use them" kind of talk.

If obama gets elected then Israeli will need to strike the next day as nothing will stop obama from helping Iran get the weapons.

Just because almost all of Obama's stories are full of holes, is no reason the Swiss should do him any favors. Let them stick with cheese, please, SWISS cheese.

I think we all could agree that we would love to delete several nation's phone numbers from bamboozler's rolodex - from Switzerland to China to Iran to Al Qaeda and beyond. The man got his priorities alll wrong.

Switzerland-puh leez, let that fraud traitor send his own messages. Obama can put them in the latest US drone(the one he sent them lastly is getting kinda dated-plus Israel shot down their first prototype) and pretend it crash landed over Iran, again.

I tend not to believe anything I read two weeks before an election. I did, however, post the story at rightwinggranny.com. The thing that is important to me about this story is that it is plausible. What does that say about the Obama administration? One aspect that makes the story plausible is the off-mic comment by President Obama to Medvedev about being flexible in his second term. I think we need to do all we can to make sure that the President loses this election--for our own well being!

0 will do a phony, lame-duck deal with Iran over their nuke program, just to give Romney and Bibi a major headache in 2013, i.e., bait Romney and Bibi into kicking the can down the road and letting Iran go nuclear. 0 is a classic loser who will lash out at everything we hold scared before he leaves.

If this is true, and I think it may well be, what does Obama gain from taking this position..that's what scares me. Colluding with Russia and telling Iran to go ahead with nukes is NOT in the best interests of America, or the free world. There are plots and plans and financial cliffs looming out there. But I know God has His hand firmly in the mix. His Will will ultimately be done.
As for no one but a few knowing about this...it will go viral on Twitter; I already did my part.

Like Carter, Obama came to office thinking "if only Americans weren't so arrogant and acting respectfully to other nations, the world would be at peace. Why should the USA decide who should and who should not be a nuclear power." What liberals (and sometimes Americans in general) do not understand is that, this isn't a conflict resolution seminar at Harvard. In his famous Cairo speech June 2009 (the sort of speech that creates war and wins Nobel Peace Prizes) the President said this, "I understand those who protest that some countries have weapons that others do not. No single nation should pick and choose which nations hold nuclear weapons. That is why I strongly reaffirmed America's commitment to seek a world in which no nations hold nuclear weapons. And any nation – including Iran – should have the right to access peaceful nuclear power if it complies with its responsibilities under the nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty. "
Iran doesn't see this as an invitation to a peace parley. She sees it as weakness and an invitation to the nuclear bomb dance.

The Islamocommunist in our White House it's a traitor.

Because he called the obvious something else did not make it so. There was No Arab Spring...there was a turning over and an assist to the IslamoCommunists of the Mulim Brotherhood...and to their agents AlQaeda.

These are Communists and IslamoCommunists working in concert, with an assist from Obama for more "FLEXABILITY". This was the destruction of America's allies in the Middle East and elsewhere to help destroy the USA. No oil drilling so as to put us in a very precarious position for a war in the a Middle East ...nukes to Iran, to help destroy Israel...weapons to our enemies AlQaeda to arm them against our Allies, which is the true story of Benghazi--with the planned protests from a video to provide cover as they moved arms through Turkey (another former frien) to Syria for the arming of AlQaeda...to slaughter more Christians, though 30,000 have to date been savagely murdered...

Obama should be arrested with Holder and Clinton...stop quivering against their race war threats ...and take decisive action.

Where is the Republican "leadership" in Congress?? A poster after the article asks the question, "If this story is true, wouldn't it be tantamount to a President unilaterally entering into a treaty without the advice and consent of Congress? If so, wouldn't this be an impeachable offense?"

Again, where is the Congress?

Obama cannot recognize anything! This falls in the realm of a treaty-like deal and will take Congress to ratify it. It has no meaning and it's worth the paper it's written on. Not much of an October Surprise.

Libya, Egypt, Tunisia, Jordan, Syria...have all been lit on fire by the arsonist of the Middle East...Obama's Communist organisers were on the ground in Egypt and elsewhere to insure it happened...Trumpka, Stern and Leo Gerard led the way for the revolutionaries....and handed the biggest, strongest army that we built (Egypt's) over to the IslamoCommunists.

Obama has outsourced our manufacturing to China, our drilling to Brazil and others (the spill was sabotage) our tax dollars to the Federal Reserve on their way to the IMF and TARP went to prop foreign banks, not the USA....Obama has redistributed the wealth of the USA to others in the world...He took a stance at every point against freedom and liberty.

He has reduced the value of your dollar by massive printing stealing directly out of every Americans bank account, inflated the cost of food, destroyed the value of homes through his CRA schemes...he must go...and prison rather than his new 30 million dollar estate in Hawaii.

Given the lunacy of the leaders in Iran and their oft stated desire to eliminate Israel from the earth, and their push to convert the entire world to Islam, does any thinking person really believe that all Iran wants is nuclear energy for "peaceful" purposes? It's as clear as the nose on your face that if they acquire enough enriched nuclear material, it will not be long until they have bomb.

And if the Swiss were engaged in this letter swapping mess, wouldn't it be a simple thing for someone to simply call the Swiss Ambassador to Iran and ask him? I mean, the Swiss are supposed to be neutral with everybody, so what would keep them from answering a question of that importance?

Rove backstabs Akin. McCain backstabs Bachmann. Liars rule. Oil Can Harry rules. Empty establishment ruling class candidates with "insincere" Christian views, and foreign money bankrolling some of them, is what we have devolved to. Bush 1, who ran the CIA, and Bush 2, the calculating and overspending "compassionate conservative" remain silent. Palin, once the Maid of Orleans, is writing now about looking at her derriere in the mirror. Even she knows there won't be a day of reckoning for this domestic enemy, whether he wins or loses. Why? There is no adequate definition of domestic enemy, or treason, or perversion, or whatever, because there is no controlling legal authority. What there is is a future that won't belong to those who slander the prophet of allah. The surrender of our absolute truths, and so the ability to communicate in any meaningful America sense has paralyzed action. We have also booed the Creator who endows our Liberty and rules in the affairs of men. Study to show yourself approved. Contend for the Faith. Fast and Pray.

How surprising!!! zero is one politician who campaigned (2008) and campaigned and when elected fulfilled every one of his campaign promises...and then more. No one will go after impeachment. No one will charge him with treason. No one will prosecute him. Congress is useless and has been made more useless by executive orders. obama has not endorsed or supported any dem candidates because he thinks he's the king and does not need Congress. Why is any one surprised by the latest...a secret message recognizing Iran's nuclear rights? I can't get over Benghazi...and now this. He thought in heart of hearts the media would not investigate Benghazi. He went to bed and the Nevada thinking no one would question his handling of Benghazi. Surprise zippy. Unfortunately I don't think the media will run with this one.

Trial balloon, satire, or whatever: it's time to (re)read Neville Chamberlain's September 30, 1938 quote:

"We, the German Fuhrer and Chancellor, and the British Prime Minister, have had a further meeting today and are agreed in recognizing that the question of Anglo-German relations is of the first importance for our two countries and for Europe.

We regard the agreement signed last night and the Anglo-German Naval Agreement as symbolic of the desire of our two peoples never to go to war with one another again.

We are resolved that the method of consultation shall be the method adopted to deal with any other questions that may concern our two countries, and we are determined to continue our efforts to remove possible sources of difference, and thus to contribute to assure the peace of Europe.

My good friends, for the second time in our history, a British Prime Minister has returned from Germany bringing peace with honor. I believe it is "peace for our time." Go home and get a nice quiet sleep."


Scary. Downright scary. Learn history or repeat it.

commies/fascists; fascists/commies - are very much alike for sadistically treating their subjects, but one stark difference:
mussolini and hitler were fighting for their homelands. lenin/stalin and mao were willing to lose the international battle: russia in 1918 signed the peace treaty with germans giving away pieces of Russian Empire, and mao didn't fight japanese army in the 1940s, letting Chiang Kai-shek do the fighting and preserving his commie army and then defeating Chiang Kai-shek. What a nice patriot!
Nothing amazes me anymore! I'll say it again: they are sick sadists, nothing moral and conscientious about them!

Just to clarify: The Swiss were involved because they have maintained diplomatic relations with Iran and we haven't; they were doing us a favor. And by leaking, they've done us one more.

As mentioned (once) above, Obama delivered a drone to the Iranians.

My question: Building a missile warhead capable nuke is a supposed technological roadblock. Is this also true for a drone-delivered nuke?

#64, Rush did talk about it, reminding us of what Obama said in 2009.

Rush Limbaugh (on his program today, 10/22/12):

What's been reported about Iran is there was a leak over the weekend that Obama had made a deal, unilaterally, nobody else talking, no French, no UN, no Israel, just Obama and Iran and a deal was struck, the Iranians would stop nuclear development in exchange for us canceling sanctions. After that sat there for an hour or two, the regime then sent this guy Tommy Vietor out who said, "Nope, no, no, not true, not true." Then after that we learned that the discussions are ongoing but that there's no resolution yet. So the latest information is that Obama is talking to the Iranians about this, but with nobody else. No French, no UN, no Brits, no Israel.

We also know -- and I went back and I found it. It was in his Cairo speech in one example, where Obama said, (paraphrasing) "It's not right for one nation to tell another they can or can't have nukes." He said that in his Cairo speech. Here it is. Obama on nukes, remarks by the president, Cairo University, June 4th, 2009. This the WhiteHouse.gov website. "I understand those who protest that some countries have weapons and others do not. No single nation should pick and choose which nation holds nuclear weapons."

San Jose, Calif. — A usually busy DMV office in San Jose was closed Friday after a motorist waiting to take a driver´s test crashed her car into the building and caused a gas leak. The driver declined to give her name but told KTVU she was nervous about taking the driver´s license tests because this would have been her third try. Around noon the line started to move but she said she hit the accelerator instead of the brake and rammed a motorcycle rider in front of her. Then, she said she swerved to try to avoid running over the rider and

Obama on undocumented Irish:

President Obama says the thousands of Irish immigrants in the US are being denied opportunities because of the US strict immigration laws. The President was speaking the traditional Shamrock ceremony at the White House as part of the St Patrick´s Day celebrations. The issue of immigration reform was a priority for the Irish Government delegation, led by Enda Kenny. The delegation has been lobbying in Washington during the St Patrick´s Day trip for reforms to benefit the 50,000 undocumented Irish there. President Obama said too many undocumented Irish were denied the chance to contribute to society as they were not able to pay taxes

President Barack Obama held a Spanish language town hall at the Newseum last week in which he was interviewed by reporters from some of the largest Spanish media outlets in the world. During the interview, he was asked a question from a man who wanted to buy Obamacare for a family of three but couldn’t afford it. (Snip) Obama couldn’t settle on a single answer to the question, so he instead suggested that the man should just sign up for Medicaid, blamed Texas for affordable insurance not being available, and concluded by saying the man should cancel his telephone service

Why discredited ‘scandals’

MSNBC, by Steve Benen    Original Article

On Fox News last night, Bill O’Reilly struggled with a question he apparently finds confusing: why aren’t major news organizations covering the IRS “scandal” to his satisfaction. Lois Lerner, the former head of the IRS’ tax exempt division, took the Fifth last week, but most of the media seemed indifferent. (Snip) That’s one possible explanation. But in the interest of giving O’Reilly and Goldberg something else to consider, there’s a more plausible, reality-based reason the media has lost interest in this scandal: there is no scandal. As we’ve discussed on more than a few occasions, the story has already been

The past two days have revealed the dangerous ramifications of the narrow-minded foreign policy elite in Washington, and a media establishment that has for so much of President Obama’s tenure accepted the statements of the administration as gospel. (Snip) If this is the sort of foreign policy anticipation that the establishment delivers, it’s little surprise that no one trusts America’s self-styled policy elites any more. They are too used to judging the world according to the patterns toward which they are already biased, as opposed to seeing it as it is.

President Obama has made liberal use of "executive action" throughout his presidency, and pledged to make even more use of executive action in this year´s State of the Union speech. He seems to think that because Republicans don´t want to implement his agenda, he can go around Congress. The Heritage Foundation is out with a new report on President Obama´s executive actions, titled "An Executive Unbound," finding that "abusive, unlawful, even potentially unconstitutional unilateral action has been a hallmark of the Obama Administration." They´ve also compiled a list of the top ten abusive executive actions taken by the President.

For much of his time in office, President Obama has been accused by a mix of conservative hawks and liberal interventionists of overseeing a dangerous retreat from the world at a time when American influence is needed most. The once-hopeful Arab Spring has staggered into civil war and military coup. China is stepping up territorial claims in the waters off East Asia. Longtime allies in Europe and in the Persian Gulf are worried by the inconsistency of a president who came to office promising the end of the United States’ post-Sept. 11 wars. Now Ukraine has emerged as a test of

America´s ruling class has been experiencing more pushback than usual lately. It just might be a harbinger of things to come. First, in response to widespread protests last week, the Department of Homeland Security canceled plans to build a nationwide license plate database. Many local police departments already use license-plate readers that track every car as it passes traffic signals or pole-mounted cameras. Specially equipped police cars even track cars parked on the street or even in driveways. The DHS put out a bid request for a system that would have gone national, letting the federal government track millions of

John Boehner just bought a condo

John Boehner´s purchase of an $835,000 condo in an exclusive community in Marco Island, Fla. -- a story broken by Jonathan Strong at Breitbart News -- has increased chatter that the House speaker is planning his exit strategy from Washington when the 113th Congress draws to a close later this year. (snip) Politically speaking, the timing of Boehner buying a condo in Florida days after he broke with his conference to push -- and vote for -- a clean debt-ceiling increase is hard to simply dismiss. It could, of course, be simple coincidence. But, it´s been our experience that coincidences

Via America Rising and the IJR, is this the key that finally unlocks the enigma of Harry Reid, tinpot demagogue? Maybe, from moment to moment, this guy just … doesn’t realize what’s coming out of his mouth. Hard to believe he could forget saying on the Senate floor that all ObamaCare horror stories — all of them — are a GOP/Koch brothers fairy tale designed to besmirch the stellar reputation of the Affordable Care Act. Those remarks got heavy coverage in conservative media, and even got picked up at WaPo. You don’t toss a grenade that powerful without choosing your

In an address to the House on Wednesday, Alabama Representative Mo Brooks read aloud a letter sent to him by Dr. Marlin Gill of Decatur. The letter holds nothing back while detailing the excessive costs and regulations that Dr. Gill calls Obamacare’s “war against doctors.” Here is the full text of the letter, courtesy of Rep. Brooks’ office: Dear Congressman Brooks, As a practicing family physician, I plead for help against what I can best characterize as Washington’s war against doctors. The medical profession has never before remotely approached today’s stress, work hours, wasted costs, decreased efficiency, and declining ability to focus on patient

U.S. President Barack Obama and Pope Francis met Thursday for the first time at Vatican City, offering a chance for a reset of sorts between the administration and Catholic leadership following years of strained relations. The two world leaders greeted each other with a smile and a handshake, and posed for pictures before sitting down across a table from each other. The goal of the meeting: Focus on areas where two of the world´s most influential men agree and gently tread ground where they differ. The President and the Pontiff will, as the White House said in a statement, focus on "shared commitment

As part of its plan to reduce U.S. greenhouse gas emissions, the Obama administration is targeting the dairy industry to reduce methane emissions in their operations. This comes despite falling methane emission levels across the economy since 1990. The White House has proposed cutting methane emissions from the dairy industry by 25 percent by 2020. Although U.S. agriculture only accounts for about 9 percent of the country’s greenhouse gas emissions, according to the Environmental Protection Agency, it makes up a sizeable portion of methane emissions — which is a very potent greenhouse gas. Some of these methane emissions come from

Nearly six in 10 people disapprove of President Obama´s job performance in a new poll by the Associated Press, the highest rating recorded by the newswire. According to the AP-GFK survey released Wednesday, 59 percent disapprove of Obama´s job performance while 41 percent approve. A similar poll released by the news outlet in January found 45 percent approved of him while 53 percent disapproved. Other recent polling has found Obama´s disapproval rating slightly lower, remaining in the low 50s. A CBS News poll Tuesday showed 50 percent disapproval, while Gallup has his disapproval at 52 percent. In the AP poll,

One by one, the myths of the Affordable Care Act have been revealed. When the curtain on open enrollment falls on March 31, the last remaining big myth of ObamaCare will be fully exposed: The individual mandate has failed. After a last-ditch effort with President Obama himself encouraging "young invincibles" to sign up before the deadline, the administration is scrambling to boost enrollment. On Tuesday, the White House announced that people who applied for coverage on the federal health-insurance exchange will have until mid-April to finish the paperwork. The mandate was supposed to be the administration´s magical elixir for the assorted shortcomings

More than six million Americans have now signed up for private insurance under the Affordable Care Act, according to the White House, with just four days to go until the end of its first open enrollment period. While traveling in Italy on Thursday, President Obama shared the news in a conference call with thousands of health-care navigators and volunteers helping enroll people on state and federal marketplaces. As the volume of consumers seeking health plans has surged -- there were over 1.5 million visits to HealthCare.gov Wednesday and more than 430,000 calls to the marketplaces´ call centers -- Obama urged those on

When Jorge Mario Bergoglio became Pope Francis a little more than a year ago, the first thing that struck those who knew him well was his unexpected, beatific smile. “In Argentina, he didn’t smile like that,” Sergio Rubin, the pope’s biographer, said this week at a conference sponsored by the Ethics and Public Policy Center. “That was the big surprise.” Since then, the pope has mostly kept on smiling — in homilies, in audiences, in meetings with the homeless and the poor. If you look at the pictures from Francis’ meeting with President Obama on Thursday, though, the smile is there only some of the time.

Their target is the GOP, but they are not angry liberals bent on destroying it. They are reform-minded Republican leaders intent on strengthening it. These Republicans are applying conservative principles to 21st-century challenges, focused on middle-class concerns like lowering costs and improving access to college, modernizing health care and reforming the tax code. They aim to broaden prosperity´s reach through markets and merit, not government and corporate cronyism. They´re also concentrating on helping the poor by changing Washington´s dizzying assortment of antipoverty programs to emphasize work and make the safety net more effective and sustainable. The reformers´ success in providing

One is a world leader who has been praised for his humility and outlook on the world. The other is an American president, once the international superstar of the political stage. So it is no surprise that President Barack Obama has travelled to the Vatican in Rome possibly to get some tips from the popular Pope Francis who now even has own weekly glossy magazine dedicated to him. As he sat down with the Pontiff at the Vatican this morning, Obama called himself a ´great admirer´ of the pope. Their historic first meeting comes as Obama´s administration and the church

Usually the type of Republicans MSNBC hosts invite on their shows are either craven RINO types who can be depended upon to trash talk fellow Republicans, or the more inarticulate, dimmer bulbs in the party who fail to communicate conservative positions effectively. MSNBC host Chris Hayes had an entirely different type of animal on his hands with PA Americans For Prosperity Director, Jennifer Stefano. In fact, he´s probably still licking his wounds after the nasty confrontation he had with her, Wednesday night in a debate over the latest ObamaCare delay. He got off on the wrong foot by introducing Stefano

Joe Newby at The Washington Examiner has found a real doozy of a “comedian.” Her name is Laura Levites – with obviously no connection to the priests of the Old Testament. (She´s an atheist with a fondness for Ricky Gervais.) "I would personally like to castrate every Male Conservative Christian so that they have NO reproductive rights," she wrote on Twitter, using the hashtag "#HobbyLobby." She certainly knows how to draw attention to herself. Newby said that’s not all. She also expressed her hatred of Christians in a tweet calling conservative Christians "******bags," claiming they are "really trying" her patience.
