united nations: obama covered up iran sanctions violations (#irandeal)

A new United Nations report that the Obama Administration and other western governments may be covering up Iran’s violations of international sanctions of ahead of the upcoming June 30 deadline for a final nuclear deal to be agreed.

As Sangwon Yoon reports at Bloomberg View, the UN report provides clear evidence of sanctions violations, such as the head of the Quds force of the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps openly violating an international travel ban. However, it says, western countries have stopped reporting Iran’s violations, which could only mean a “reduction of procurement activities by the Iranian side,” or, more likely, a political decision by some member states to refrain from reporting to avoid a possible negative impact on ongoing negotiations.” The report’s evidence suggests a cover-up is the likeliest explanation.

Yoon quotes Mark Dubowitz of the Foundation for Defense of Democracies, who said: ““This is a clear political decision not to publicize these examples of sanctions evasion in order to ensure that public reporting on this doesn’t in any way jeopardize the talks or harden congressional resolve….The Obama administration has bent over backwards to try and whitewash Iranian violations both on the nuclear side and also on the sanction-busting side.”

In recent days, the State Department has worked hard to dispel a report by the New York Times that Iran had a large excess of enriched uranium and was unlikely to meet a June 30 deadline to oxidize it to meet agreed-upon constraints.

The growing impression–now reinforced by skepticism from the UN, of all places–is that the Obama administration is determined to reach a deal with Iran at any cost, even though doing so would prove Iran a path to a nuclear weapon within several years at most, and would grant it hundreds of billions of dollars in frozen funds to support its ongoing proxy wars.

sarah palin is one of us, not one of them. #palin2016

The Thursday, February 5, article “Not Sarah Palin — not again,” by Jerry Shenk, struck me as dead wrong on all counts.

1st, Sarah Palin is one of us, not one of them.

2nd, the country needs a healer – someone who can rise above the mass media’s hate-fueled attacks while working to bring sanity back to government and ideological balance back to both major parties.  Sarah Palin can do this: she’s a deeply committed conservative who has consistently shown, and not just as governor and McCain’s running mate, but throughout her personal and political life, both an ability to work with the other side and a willingness to listen to others.

3rd, Palin is electable – whether she takes Scott Walker, Michele Bachmann, or Newt Gingrich along doesn’t really matter.  With her at the top of the ticket, the media will go berserk, and the same four million Tea Party voters who stayed home in 2012 will put her into the White House with a massive majority.

Palin excites where Democrats organize.  It almost doesn’t matter which dino you look at, the differences between a Palin rally and one of theirs are striking.  Even Warren (who I think will head up the ticket if for no other reason than the fact that following a faux American with a faux Pocahontas seems natural) can only marshal, not excite, her voters.  Look at Palin campaign videos posted on blogs and other non-major media sites, and you’ll see people getting emotionally involved, feeling the energy, talking to strangers, and expressing hope.  None of that happens when Clinton, Warren, or Obama speaks.  There you see the unmistakable signs of the few manipulating the many: people standing silently or in small groups that came together and will leave together, people throwing garbage on the floors, “spontaneous” demonstrators waving professionally made signs, and carefully cued cheering.

4th, she’s right much more often than most.  Almost every time she’s said something since 2007, the media have jumped all over how stupid she is, and later remembered only their own vitriol when time proved her right.

5th, the woman’s character is unimpeachable.  For eight years now she’s been the primary target for every liberal fascist from MSNBC and the New York Times to the Daily Kos – and none of them have found a thing.  As Romney discovered, it doesn’t matter whom the GOP puts up; the same campaign machine that can dedicate man-months of FBI time to Bridgegate but is unable to find even a smidgen of corruption at the IRS will go after even the most liberal candidate with all guns blazing.

So, bottom line?  Yes, Sarah, finally – because she’s what the country needs: hope, warmth, engagement, honesty; the kind of real Americanness that can come from only a true conservative: one who can make tough decisions, values contrary opinion, and never loses her moral compass.

Paul Murphy: Finally: Sarah Palin, yes

 

gov #palin: “noticeable absence – man who promised in ’08 to restore america’s image…nominated for #nobelpeaceprize 2wks into this failed presidency”

After the atrocious attacks of September 11th, the world unified behind our great nation, stiffened its collective spine, and took a stand against Islamic terrorism. Following last week’s brutal attacks in Paris by Muslims with the same evil terroristic beliefs as the 9/11 savages, today the world came together again against the death cult that is the radical Islamic “faith.” The largest crowd in Paris’ history just proclaimed “Je Suis Charlie” as Germany’s Prime Minister locked arms with the President of France and marched the streets that her country had occupied generations ago. The heroic Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, the King and Queen of Jordan, the UK’s Prime Minister, the President of Mali, the Palestinian President, and so many others all put differences aside to proclaim, “Enough is enough! Evil shall not triumph!”

There was one noticeable absence – the man who promised in 2008 to restore America’s image around the world…the man nominated for the Nobel Peace prize just two weeks into this failed Presidency…the man who would seek to destroy those who effectively question what he is doing to America and her allies. Where was President Obama? Or even, in his stead, Vice President Biden? Secretary Kerry? I’ve no idea what took precedence on our President’s schedule this weekend, but America was MIA as the rest of the civilized world unified against Islamic fundamentalism.

Paris

I humbly dare speak for many concerned Americans tonight in asking, “Good God, Mr. President, we were once known as the leader of the free world, standing for what is right! You must not let America’s sacrifices be in vain. When will you learn that actions speak louder than your words?”

To the people of France, please know that we, the American people, stand with you in this fight against the insanity that is Islamic fundamentalism. Americans love our fellow man seeking peace, so we cry with you, “Je suis Charlie!”

There are more of us than there are of them. Barack Hussein Obama, do not give an inch to this evil.

political trailblazer #sarahpalin to keynote #nape2015 decision maker’s breakfast #houston

FORT WORTH, Texas–(BUSINESS WIRE)–NAPE is pleased to announce that Sarah Palin, the former Governor of Alaska and first female vice presidential candidate for the Republican Party, will give the keynote address at NAPE’s Decision Maker’s Breakfast in Houston on February 12 at the Hilton Americas. The Decision Maker’s Breakfast takes place during the annual NAPE Summit, the world’s largest upstream expo. Each year, the networking breakfast hosts a prominent speaker to examine key issues facing the oil and gas industry.

“We are honored to have Governor Palin keynote the annual Decision Maker’s Breakfast and share her valuable insights gained from her political career”

“We are honored to have Governor Palin keynote the annual Decision Maker’s Breakfast and share her valuable insights gained from her political career,” said Marty Schardt, executive vice president of the American Association of Professional Landmen (AAPL). “From serving as chair of Alaska’s powerful Oil and Gas Conservation Commission, where she earned public praise for whistle blowing on corruption issues, to being the first female and youngest Governor of Alaska, her experience has provided her a unique perspective on industry. I know NAPE attendees will find her policy knowledge and industry outlook to be of great value.”

Known as a fearless and independent trailblazer – and named one of TIME magazine’s “100 Most Influential People,” Governor Palin has the distinctive ability to unite, engage and attract audiences as she shares her insight into the issues facing our country today. At the 2015 Decision Maker’s Breakfast, she will address today’s critical issues such as energy independence as well as her perspective on current politics and the 2016 elections.

The Decision Maker’s Breakfast will take place at 6:30 a.m. on Thursday, February 12 prior to the opening of the NAPE exhibit floor at 8 a.m. Launched in 1993, NAPE has become a must-attend event for those looking to initiate and close deals in the upstream space. Next month’s expo is expected to draw close to 17,000 attendees and 1,000 exhibitors.

To register for the Decision Maker’s Breakfast, visit NAPE’s website (note that seating is limited). To attend additional NAPE Summit events – such as the Icebreaker, Business Conference or Charities Luncheon – please visit http://napeexpo.com/ for more information.

gov #palin: i’m excited to visit w/ @seanhannity tonight via satellite from the crisp far north!

I’m excited to visit with Sean Hannity tonight via satellite from the crisp far North! (It’s 40-below up the highway, but wimps like me living in Alaska’s more balmy region get to bask in minus 7-degrees today.)
FOX airs Hannity at 10pm EST. Hopefully we’ll talk about new energy and leadership needed in Washington, and I’ll bet he and his huge, wonderful audience may want a take on the ridiculousness and danger of liberal hypocrisy rearing its head again and again – this time over a kid and a dog. I am humbled to get to share TRUTH with all of you.
Though radical elites don’t believe you deserve intelligent debate, 2015 will show them Americans are united in standing up against their double standards, their power grabs, and their disrespect of you. Finally then, we can ALL breathe!
Enjoy NBC’s take on a little boy and his best friend:
