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.
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.
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.
“. . . 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 optionsbut 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?
Obama has always supported Shiites in my opinion. The Arab Spring is an example. I also believe he supports Assad in Syria. Selling out our interests to Iran wouldn't surprise me. If anyone has another view I'd like to hear it.
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.
Really, if I were Obama I would have a handy excuse for just cancelling right now.
In addition, there is another story out there this morning that the Mullahs are very nervous that Obama may lose this election. .... Now why do you suppose terrorist types would worry about Obama being replaced?
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?
We need to be careful and make sure we have good evidence on this. We could get egg on our face if we make claims that turn out not to be true. At the same time, if true, I think it is equivalent to treason
I agree, he can do a lot of damage between Nov. 6 and Jan. 20 but if congress gets busy immediately and beats the drum about impeachment for treason, corruption, etc., it could keep him busy refuting, back-filling, lying...
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 don't matter - it don't matter - it don't matter. The news media will not let this get out to the voters. They will keep this out of the news ----- until after the election. 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.
I'm beginning to wonder if Obama isn't programed like the men who bombed the World Trade Center - to destroy this country even if he dies in the process. Why else would he want Iran to have nuclear weapons.
Why would this not be treason? I would not believe this story, except my own ears heard 0bama making a deal with the Russians that he would be "more flexible" after he was reelected. This man has to go. I am really worried for my country.
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.
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?"
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?
Why is everyone so surprised to learn this ??? A good thing though, this has come out before the debate tonight... I pray to Almighty God that Romney wins the elections as O-Bummer is not for the american people, he has his own agenda. PEOPLE ! get rid of him and fast !
Bowing to other governments.....I recall a special related to the coverage of the Kennedy assassination and they interviewed a protocol expert who was asked by Mrs. Kennedy if she should curtsy to the queen during a visit she and JFK had made; and the protocol expert said, 'Chiefs of state and wives of chiefs of state do not go around curtsying to one another...'
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.
Obama knows he is going to lose this election. Goodness knows what this narcissist will do next. Strikes me about the Libyan murder of 4 American Personnel . This lemon was on the nightly talk shows and same day Airforce one to Las Vegas all on the taxpayers dime .Obama's senior Political advisor is Valerie Jarrett ,Iranian born to US parents and speaks fluent Farsi.Obama has to go toute suite.
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!
the democrates treat us like idiots. they don't even try to make it a good lie. no thought put into it. they insult our intelligence. they act as if we don't even exist. good riddance to them. can't wait to vote.
As for the Republican leadership, it's non-existent. Boehner and McConnell just go along to get along, period. Do you EVER see either of them at any microphone, on TV, as you did with Pelosi, who was out there everyday? NO, you don't.
We knew that Obama WHISPERED to the Russians that he would have more flexibility after the election, and then today we read that Obama sent a SECRET message to Iran through the Swiss recognizing their nuclear rights! What else will be in "the big reveal" if he gets reelected?
#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."
#28 - Allow me to state that I am completely comfortable of anyone calling me a racist, any time, any where, knowing that if that's the best shot they got, then they got nuthin at all on me, over that of having the false taint of being a traitor attached to me! I suspect that's where Zippy and I part ways!
Cory Booker must have been unavailable. Josh Romney, son of former Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney, said in a tweet on Friday that he saved four people after a car accident and included a photo of himself standing next to what appeared to be an overturned vehicle inside a house. "Was first on scene to big accident, see pic of car in the house. I lifted 4 people out to safety. All ok. Thankful.", the tweet read. Romney, who lives in Utah, told NBC News he was driving his family home from Thanksgiving dinner when the car sped by, went
We have a deal. After years of false starts, mutual recriminations and steadily escalating pressure, Iran has finally agreed to accept real limits on its nuclear program. In his statement Saturday night announcing the agreement, U.S. President Barack Obama called it an "important first step" and declared that diplomacy had "opened up a new path toward a world that is more secure." (snip) But we’re still a very long way from Tipperary on this one. And we should be careful about putting on the party hats and breaking out the champagne—at least for now, anyway. And here are five reasons why.
Nov. 22 falls on the Friday before Thanksgiving this year, just as it did 50 years ago. And that extraordinary day in 1963 began on the Hill in ways that would seem familiar to the congressional denizens of today. (Snip) As was the custom, then as now, the chore of acting as presiding officer had been parceled out to several of the freshmen with the lunchtime slot assigned to the youngest in the class, 31-year-old Edward M. Kennedy of Massachusetts. He was in the chair when his brother was killed. And from that instant, the scene at the Capitol unfolded
Before President Obama was elected, the United States was known as one nation under God — but the Obama Administration seems to think otherwise. Organizing For America published an email Sunday suggesting the greatest nation on the face of the Earth owes its allegiance to another deity. David Axelrod write that “we’ve made serious progress as a nation under President Obama.” You can read his edict in its entirety below. No wonder the Democratic National Committee voted to remove the Almighty from their party in 2012. They only have room for one God.
Second-term presidents in the past 30 years have had some pretty embarrassing news conferences, full of frank admissions of failure, submissive spasms of shame and groveling, grieving apologies. Bill Clinton had to admit that he actually did have sex with that woman, Miss Lewinsky; George W. Bush finally thought of something he might have done wrong; his dad had to explain all those new taxes after his unequivocal pledge; and even Ronald Reagan ate crow over the Iran-Contra affair. But there has never, ever, been a more pitiful presser than the one conducted last week by President Obama.
The continuing attention devoted to the blunders, incompetence, and lies surrounding the Obamacare rollout is much deserved. But we shouldn’t forget that the President’s health-care monstrosity is merely the latest and biggest of scores of government entitlement programs suffering from the same flawed progressive assumption––that government “experts” armed with coercive power alone can solve problems better left to the states, civil society, and the free market. In reality, such programs relentlessly metastasize, increasing as well fraud, waste, abuse, and costs. One such program is SNAP, the kinder and gentler name for what we used to call food stamps. Apparently the
While Barack Obama’s grotesque lie, “If you like your health care plan, you can keep it!” haunts millions of Americans who are learning first-hand that the exact opposite is true, The One, in concert with corrupt RINOS and Democrats (whom are automatically understood to be universally corrupt), is counting on another WHOPPER to codify his amnesty nightmare into federal law. With respect to amnesty, the equivalent Obama lie is, “Once we pass reform (AKA, Amnesty), we will secure the borders!) Translated: If you like American sovereignty, language, and culture you CAN KEEP IT——if you pass amnesty!
I suppose liberal politicians have to operate by the philosophy that if you want to make an omelet, you have to break a few eggs. But 15.8 million of them? That´s a lot of broken eggs - even through the White House spin masters don´t want you to look at it that way. During the past few weeks, hundreds of thousands, perhaps millions, of Americans have been notified that they are being dropped from the health insurance coverages they have now. Some may remember President Barack Obama´s promises, made over and over again, that if you like the insurance you have, Obamacare
Cairo, Egypt--Former Egyptian President Mohamed Morsi’s trial begins on Monday November 4th, (Valentine’s day in Egypt), and intel rumors are rife that the trial will prove President Barack Obama’s ties to the Muslim Brotherhood. If former Chief of Egyptian Intelligence Murad Muwafi, can prove Morsi’s agreement to the presence of terrorists in Egypt and providing them with protection, he will be executed for the crime of high treason. (Snip) These are the facts Muwafi will present to the trial: The Muslim Brotherhood was linked directly with the CIA—before the massive Peoples’ Revolution of January 25th—and the Barack Obama Administration kept inciting the
President Barack Obama personally authorised the phone tapping of Chancellor Angela Merkel’s mobile because he wanted to ´know everything´ about the world’s most powerful woman, it was claimed on Sunday. (Snip) ‘Obama did not stop the action at that time but allowed it to continue,’ said an intelligence official familiar with the NSA operation against Merkel image on Sunday. ´Obama did not stop the action but rather furthered it,´ said the Bild informant. ´The reason for the action?´ said Bild. ´Obama wanted to know exactly who this woman was.´ German handling of the eurozone crisis and its refusal to get involved
US President Barack Obama was scheduled to visit the Church of Our Lady cathedral in Dresden during a June 2009 whistle-stop visit to Germany. (Snip) On this day, at the latest, it must have dawned on diplomats that this US president was different from his predecessors. He was someone who did not attach value to diplomatic niceties nor to the sensitivities of his close friends, which he already had proven as a presidential candidate. At that time he put Chancellor Merkel in an awkward position by wanting to make a campaign speech in front of the Brandenburg Gate. This site
While Washington, and the press, have been in an uproar over the government shutdown and the debt-limit negotiations, the debt itself has continued to climb. (Snip) The big lesson of the shutdown is that -- in a time when so-called "draconian cuts" usually refer to mere decreases in the rate of growth of spending on programs -- America was able to do without all the "non-essential" government workers just fine. (The same AP poll cited above says that 80% have felt no impact from the shutdown; a majority also oppose increasing the debt limit.) Turns out that most of those
New York — The anchor who might beat Bill O’Reilly gets her eyelash extensions applied one at a time, with tweezers and dabs of glue, about 90 minutes before showtime, right after a motorized gun sprays foundation over her face, neck, shoulders, collarbone and sternum, wiping out a galaxy of light freckles that spreads across her — Let me stop you right there.

When I was a kid, I knew two different Santa Clauses. The first had a fat belly, rosy cheeks, a long white beard, and skin as pink as bubble gum. He was omnipresent, visiting my pre-school and the local mall, visible in all of my favorite Christmas specials. Then there was the Santa in my family’s household, in the form of ornaments, cards, and holiday figurines. A near-carbon copy of the first one—big belly, rosy cheeks, long white beard: check, check, check. But his skin was as dark as mine. Seeing two different Santas was bewildering. Eventually I asked my father what
US President Barack Obama may have moved the masses attending Nelson Mandela’s memorial service with his stirring eulogy, but it was his grinning "selfie" with the Danish and British premiers that set social networks abuzz. In a candid moment captured by a photographer, Denmark’s Prime Minister Helle Thorning-Schmidt can be seen holding up her smartphone, with Obama lending a helping hand, as they pose for a picture with David Cameron, all three of them smiling broadly in their seats at Soweto’s World Cup stadium.(Snip)Mashable, the news and technology website, ran the photograph under the headline: ‘‘Dear Obama: Funerals are no place
In August 2013 I became very sick with what I thought was a cold. After a few days I lost vision in my left eye and I checked into the hospital. I soon found out that what I thought was a summer cold was actually Strep bacteria poisoning my blood stream. The bacteria blinded my left eye, ate a hole through my heart, caused five strokes on both sides of my brain and forced the removal of my prosthetic left knee. Dr. Lee was the surgeon assigned to perform open heart surgery. What was originally scheduled to last four hours ended
Johannesburg - A man who provided sign language interpretation on stage for Nelson Mandela´s memorial service, attended by scores of heads of state, was a "fake," the national director of the Deaf Federation of South Africa said on Tuesday. Asked about the claim by The Associated Press, South Africa´s government said it was preparing a statement. Three sign language experts said the man was not signing in South African or American sign languages. South African sign language covers all of the country´s 11 official languages, according to the federation. It wasn´t immediately clear if the unidentified man was using a
The health director who approved the release of President Obama’s birth certificate has died in a plane crash, Hawaiian officials said Thursday. Loretta Fuddy died after the Cessna Grand Caravan aircraft she was travelling on went down shortly after leaving Kalaupapa Airport at around 3:15 p.m. local time (10:15 a.m. ET) on Wednesday. The other eight people on board were rescued, Richard Schuman, president of Makani Kai Air, told NBC News early Thursday, adding that that there was no indication as to why the plane had crashed. Fuddy hit the headlines two years ago when she approved a waiver request allowing Obama to
House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) snapped at conservative groups that have come out in opposition to the budget deal reached Wednesday between Rep. Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) and Sen. Patty Murray (D-Wash.). "They´re using the American people for their own purposes. This is ridiculous," Boehner said at a press conference with other members of House Republican leadership on Wednesday. Over the past few days, a number of conservative groups have blasted the deal because it sets discretionary spending levels in the budget higher than previous levels under sequestration. In the past three days, the influential Heritage Action, Club for Growth, Americans
President Obama’s job approval among American voters has dropped to negative territory with just 38 percent voicing their approval versus the 58 who says they disapprove, according to a national poll released Tuesday by the independent Quinnipiac University. That is one percent less than the 39% who said they approved of him in last month’s poll. The majority of the 2,692 registered voters the University in early December said that the president is not honest and trustworthy. When asked, “Do you approve or disapprove of the way Barack Obama is handling his job as President?,” respondents gave Obama lackluster ratings
Looks like this president can’t get away with flirting in front of his wife… It appears that first lady Michelle Obama was none too pleased with the way that President Barack Obama was acting toward Denmark Prime Minister Helle Thorning-Schmidt during a ceremony honoring Nelson Mandela, and before too long, they switched seats.

The sign language interpreter at Nelson Mandela´s memorial yesterday "made up his own signs," according to South Africa´s deaf federation. "He´s a complete fraud," Cara Loening, director of Sign Language Education and Development in Cape Town, said according to ITV News. "He wasn´t even doing anything, There was not one sign there. Nothing. He was literally flapping his arms around." Delphin Hlungwane, an official South African sign language interpreter at DeafSA, told Reuters:
If you go down on the ice today you´re sure of a big surprise - a rare glimpse of 20 polar bears gorging on a bloody midnight feast. These photographs show a rare cluster of males, females and cubs all dining out on the remains of a whale carcass. They spent a night and a day stripping every last morsel from the mammoth sea creature. Usually Polar bears are solitary and would never tolerate being so close to each other. But with food in plentiful supply and bellies dragging on the floor they seem too lethargic to fight.Wildlife photographer Michal
