  • How Obama Crippled the Iranian People's Freedom Quest

    FSM ^ | 7/24/2016 | Slater Bakhtavar
    Instead, Obama has ignored the people of Iran, a population friendly to the United States and its ideals. His administration even declared the 2009 Green Movement - a popular protest against a probably-rigged presidential election - an internal affair of Iran that warranted no American input. He has failed to do anything for the Iranians, and has even tacitly betrayed them by negotiating with and legitimizing their theocratic government. The catastrophic nuclear deal with the rulers of Iran represented the latest in Obama's long series of failures in relation to the country. While it is true that the economic sanctions...

    He said the final published version of the report promoted the labour market case for immigration but unpublished versions contained additional reasons, he said. He wrote: "Earlier drafts I saw also included a driving political purpose: that mass immigration was the way that the Government was going to make the UK truly multicultural. "I remember coming away from some discussions with the clear sense that the policy was intended Ė even if this wasn't its main purpose Ė to rub the Right's nose in diversity and render their arguments out of date."

    Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan isnít the only loser in last Sundayís elections. President Obama had made Erdogan a focus of his policy. The voters in that troubled NATO country voted against Erdoganís Justice and Development Party (AKP) and in so doing, slapped President Obama. President Obama went to Ankara in April, 2009, for an early edition of his Apology Tours. He spoke to the Turkish Parliament assuring deputies there that ďthe United States is not and never will be at war with Islam.Ē Every challenge that we face is more easily met if we tend to our own democratic...

    A newly-released email and lobbying documents filed with Congress reveals new ties between Clintonworld and members of a network operated by a mysterious Islamic cleric from Turkey. Connections between Clinton and acolytes of the imam, Fethullah Gulen, could muddle the complex relationship between the U.S. and Turkey, a key NATO ally, if the former secretary of state wins the White House. Turkey¬ís president, Recep Tayyip Erdońüan, has mounted an aggressive crackdown against Gulen and his followers, known as Gulenists. Erdońüan, who was once allied with Gulen, has even personally asked President Obama to extradite the 74-year-old guru, who has lived...

    Flying home to New Jersey from Chicago after the first two days at his new job, Sergey Aleynikov was prepared for the usual inconveniences: a bumpy ride, a late arrival. He was not expecting Special Agent Michael G. McSwain of the F.B.I. At 9:20 p.m. on July 3, Mr. McSwain arrested Mr. Aleynikov, 39, at Newark Liberty Airport, accusing him of stealing software code from Goldman Sachs, his old employer. At a bail hearing three days later, a federal prosecutor asked that Mr. Aleynikov be held without bond because the code could be used to ďunfairly manipulateĒ stock prices.

Jimmy Hatch, a Navy SEAL senior chief who led a platoon into a fierce battle to try to rescue Bergdahl, was shot and badly wounded on that mission.

The agency said that emails stored on dead drives were lost forever because its email backup tapes were recycled every six months, and employees were responsible for keeping their own long-term archives.

The New York real estate magnate cut McAuliffe a check for a whopping $25,000 in late March, but that's just a drop in the bucket compared to the largest single donation in McAuliffe's report - a $251,000 gift from billionaire media tycoon Haim Saban in January. That check narrowly bested a $250,000 contribution the following month from Steve Bing, another big...

    A former national security adviser to President Bill Clinton wrote an email to Hillary Clinton in 2009 advising the then-secretary of state how to deal with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu if he continued to ďbe the obstacleĒ in negotiations with Palestinians. The email from Samuel Berger advised Clinton on how to navigate the waters with Netanyahu and Palestinian leader Abu Mazen. ďGoing forward, if Bibi continues to be the obstacle, you will need to find the ground from which you can make his politics uneasy,Ē the September 22 email said. ďI think you can do that even with current...

    Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley (R., Iowa) called on the State Department to turn over documents related to Hillary Clintonís top aide Cheryl Millsí special employment status at the agency in a letter to Secretary John Kerry on Monday. Grassley also demanded to know why the State Department omitted Mills from a list of ďspecial government employees,Ē or ďSGEs,Ē for 2009 that it turned over to the Senate Judiciary Committee last year. The State Department told the Washington Free Beacon last month that Mills was an ďSGEĒ in 2009, which freed her from some ethics rules restrictions and allowed...

    The Clinton Foundation's financial statements over the past six years have been fraudulent, Wall Street investor and financial analyst Charles Ortel, who is preparing a 100-page report on the issue, told Sputnik. WASHINGTON (Sputnik) ó The organization, which has recently had doubts cast publicly over its transparency, including claims that it accepted substantial foreign donations while Hillary Clinton was in power, has remained silent on the matter, ignoring media requests for comment. "The Clinton Foundation financial statements are simple to evaluate under New York law; what they have produced, particularly since 2009, is fraudulent," Ortel said. Under New York state...

    To hear Hillary Clinton tell it, Sidney Blumenthal was no more than an old friend trying to help out by dropping her an occasional unsolicited e-mail with advice. And the only reason she listened, she said, was to keep from being ďcaught in the bubbleĒ of hearing only from ďa certain small group of people.Ē Now we know better. Turns out Blumenthal was no casual correspondent: He was repeatedly plying her with dubious ďintelligenceĒ on Libya ó much of which turned out to be false, but which she nonetheless passed on to State Department underlings. In fact, we learned this...

    In January, 2000, Malaysiaís capital was where key members of Al Qaeda held their ďKuala Lumpur summitĒ to plan the bombing of the USS Cole that October, as well as the later attacks of 9/11/01. In light of this, and other facts pointing to Kuala Lumpur playing host to a hotbed of Islamic terrorists over the years, the baffling mystery of the disappearance of Malaysia Airlines flight MH370 provokes renewed scrutiny of Kuala Lumpur in fostering international terrorism to date. In this context, Malaysiaís Islamic government and prevailing majority Mohammedan culture comes across as either grossly incompetent, or even somewhat...

    Those were the days. It was June, 2011. 24,000 pages of former Gov. Sarah Palinís emails were released by the state of Alaska. She had resigned as governor nearly two years before, and was by then a happy private citizen. The media were so interested in getting into every nook and cranny of those emails that they facilitated their release, and then crowdsourced processing them. The Guardian even published a guide. ďWe think itís important to get the documents out into the world as soon as possible and see what you think about them Ė just like we did with...

In 2009, Barack Obama turned over virtually all responsibility and authority for foreign policy negotiations with Iran to Trita Parsi and his National Iranian American Council (NIAC).

    Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu declared Sunday that the 2009 Bar Ilan speech in which he voiced support for a demilitarized Palestinian state is no longer relevant. The Friday brochure Olam Katan that was distributed at synagogues this Sabbath asked the parties running for election where they stood on the idea of establishing a Palestinian state. Deputy Minister Tzipi Hotovely replied to the brochure in the name of Likud, and said that ďThe Prime Minister has announced to the public that the Bar Ilan speech is null and void. Netanyahu's entire political biography is a struggle against a Palestinian state.Ē Following...
