  • Ben & Jerry’s Newest Flavor: Iran Deal Ice cream entrepreneurs are sweet on Presi

    08/21/2015 7:26:45 AM PDT · by rktman · 21 replies ^ | 8/20/2015 | Paul Miller
    In an email sent to supporters of the progressive political group, ice cream icons Jerry Greenfield and Ben Cohen asked recipients to join them in supporting the Iran deal to keep “America out of another war in the Middle East.” Lobbyists and billionaires plan to spend over $40 million to stop the diplomatic deal with Iran—the one the Obama Administration negotiated to prevent Iran from getting nuclear weapons. That’s dangerous, because if too many Democrats listen to the flood of hawkish, misinformation-ridden TV ads—and if they vote with Republicans—they could override the president’s agreement in just about a month.
  • Obama Using Anti-Semitic Rhetoric?

    INN ^ | 8/12/2015, 8:17 PM | Hillel Fendel
    CAMERA (The Committee for Accuracy in Middle East Reporting in America), Tablet and other media orgs have weighed in on whether pro Iran-deal spokespersons are taking an anti-Semitic tone. Some say: “Not to worry, there’s no anti-Semitism—but it will get worse.” CAMERA quotes US President Barack Obama as having said he will promote the Iran deal “despite the money, despite the lobbyists.” The same Obama was reported by The New York Times—which has come out editorially in favor of the deal—to have “denounced the deal’s opponents as ‘lobbyists’ doling out millions of dollars to trumpet the same hawkish rhetoric that...

    Obama administration allies lobbying in favor of a recently signed nuclear deal with Iran are smearing Jewish lawmakers and opponents of the accord with allegations of dual loyalty to Israel, rhetoric many view as anti-Semitic, according to allegations leveled by these individuals and groups.Organizations close to the White House, including the pro-Tehran lobbying shop National Iranian American Council (NIAC), the liberal fringe group J Street, and the anti-war organization MoveOn, have come out to question the motivation of Jewish individuals who oppose the nuclear deal, which will provide Iran with billions of dollars in sanctions relief and lift longstanding restrictions...

    A "progressive" advocacy group in the US has pledged to withhold millions of dollars in campaign contributions to Sen. Chuck Schumer as well as other Democrats should they vote in Congress against the nuclear deal with Iran. Close to 18,000 people have signed a petition on MoveOn's website, called "No money for war hawks," the group told the Huffington Post on Friday. MoveOn, which touts itself as a "community of more than 8 million Americans...lead[ing] campaigns for progressive change," has committed in this latest petition to withhold $8.3 million that it would have otherwise donated to the Democratic Party.

The purpose of their clandestine meeting was "to use their fortunes to engineer the defeat of President George W. Bush," The New Yorker magazine reports in its most recent edition. Details of the meeting remain sketchy, but the magazine described the Aspen conference this way: "Five billionaires joined half a dozen liberal leaders in a lengthy conversation about the...

    Ben Smith, following on Eli Lake’s blockbuster story, has a must-read post on the emerging scandal concerning the mullahs’ favorite front group, the National Iranian American Council (NIAC). The issues go far beyond whether NIAC has been illegally operating without registering as a foreign agent, and have ensnared NIAC’s close ally, none other than J Street. First, NIAC is a Soros-backed group. Soros is of course the money behind and got J Street up and running. He is also paying “the $90,000 annual salary of the NIAC staffer, Patrick Disney.” The Left’s moneyman is plainly in the mullah’s corner....

    State Department employees did not receive proper training and guidance on rules requiring the preservation of emails for the official record, according to the department's inspector general. In a report released Wednesday, the inspector general found that of the one billion emails sent in 2011, only 61,156 were preserved. That number dropped to 41,749 in 2013. The report, conducted in early 2014, found that some employees do not retain emails because "they do not want to make the email available in searches or fear that this availability would inhibit debate about pending decisions," according to the report.

    Boko Haram, the Islamic terrorist organization in Nigeria, is in the news because it kidnapped more than 200 teenage girls and now threatens to sell them into slavery. (That’s what a real war on women looks like.) This is just the latest of many outrages committed by Boko Haram, which is guilty of many acts of mass murder. But it has now come out that for two years, Hillary Clinton blocked efforts to add Boko Haram to the State Department’s list of terrorist organizations. This wasn’t just an episode of bureaucratic indifference. The Justice Department, the FBI, the CIA and...

    The president's expansion of the U.S. military mission in Iraq is conjuring up two dirty little words for anti-war Democrats: Mission creep. Just two months ago, when Obama announced he was going to send up to 300 American troops to Iraq, he emphasized that they would only have an advisory, non-combat role. On Friday, however, U.S. fighters bombed terrorist targets in northern Iraq. Hours before, the president had announced he was authorizing such strikes as well as the airdropping of aid to Iraqi refugees stranded on a mountaintop. The White House has stressed that the two missions — the airstrikes...

    President Barack Obama invited MoveOn to a meeting with him at the White House on Tuesday just weeks after the liberal group threatened Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney with violence. The invitation came as part of Obama’s ‘fiscal cliff’ series of meetings this week with Congressional leaders, business leaders, and unions and left wing supporters. MoveOn’s executive director Justen Ruben attended Tuesday’s White House meeting alongside leaders of the Center for American Progress, the SEIU, AFL-CIO, NEA, AFSCME and others. Days before the presidential election MoveOn released a video ad produced by the leftist filmmaker Michael Moore that called for...

    ​This post contains graphic language. Discretion is advised. – If you thought the Lena Dunham ad comparing voting to sexual intercourse with the president was crass, you might want to skip this story. Left-wing filmmaker Michael Moore and have teamed up to make an ad — titled “Greatest Generation” — that actually includes the phrase “cock punch” and features a woman old enough to be many peoples’ great grandmother promising to “burn this motherf**ker down.” The ad is allegedly centered around the issue of voter fraud, but really is focused on the idea that a victory by Mitt Romney...

    The Democrats are in a full on freak out over Ohio. Harry Reid is giving his Super PAC $250,000.00 to run ads attacking Josh Mandel. ... Senator Bennet of Colorado is sending out emails to his supporters with the subject line “Buckeye for a day.” ... This isn’t just to help Bennett. This is to help Barack Obama too. The Democrats are going all in there. Consider, in contrast, Missouri, where the GOP has totally bailed on Todd Akin and the Presidential race in Missouri likewise went from a sure thing for Romney to now a borderline toss up. The...

    SARASOTA, Fla. — Supporters and opponents of Mitt Romney faced off outside of the Republican nominee's rally here in an at-times-violent confrontation. As hundreds of Romney supporters lined the sidewalk outside the Ringling Museum of Art, a group of more than 20 protestors carrying an effigy of Romney marched in and confronted them as both sides chanted. One of the men leading the protest, organized by Occupy and Move-On according to demonstrators, repeatedly cut into the Romney line — drawing pushing and shoving. “Get a job, I worked my 50 years,” shouted one Romney supporter at the demonstrators. One man,...

    That’s the message in the skies above today’s Romney/Ryan rally in Powell, Oiho Ohio. Courtesy of Jan Crawford at CBS News, here’s a banner ad that’s being flown overhead: Yep. “Better then.” That’s what it says. Maeve Reston at the LA Times says is responsible for this. That makes sense, because they’re super-smart. Speaking of words that people don’t know how to use, I’ve been informed by my old pal Dave Weigel (@daveweigel) that I’m a “birther.” The reason I’m a “birther” is that I think Obama was born in Hawaii. I’m also a “birther” because when Obama wants...
  • MoveOn: Romney Political Suicide

    Dear MoveOn member, Breaking news: Mitt Romney just picked tea party hero Paul Ryan as his running mate. And Romney may have just committed political suicide. Paul Ryan is the author of the most extreme right-wing budget ever proposed in Congress. He wants to dismantle Medicare, privatize Social Security, and cut taxes for millionaires while raising taxes on the middle class.1 Simply put, the policies Paul Ryan stands for are politically toxic. But here's the thing: Paul Ryan isn't just a extremist—he's young, smart, and charming. The media constantly describe him as looking like "the boy next door." He's the...

    Los Angeles Times ^ | 8/1/12 | By Richard A. Serrano, Washington Bureau
    WASHINGTON — Top Justice Department officials largely dismissed a new House Republican report on the Fast and Furious gun-tracking operation, saying Tuesday that they have moved ahead with major reforms to prevent future incidents of U.S. firearms being lost and smuggled across the border into Mexico. Further, the attorney for the ATF special agent in charge in Phoenix, who oversaw Fast and Furious, lashed out at Republican congressional leaders, calling their report a "political witch hunt" aimed less at finding fault than pinning Democrats with negative political fallout from Fast and Furious. The report by Rep. Darrell Issa (R-Vista), chairman...

    There's an old adage that states "keep your friends close and your enemies closer." I am a "member" of because I like to see what kind of rank insanity comes from their absent minds. Today, I received an email that frankly I expected to receive - just not as soon. We all woke up to the tragic news of the killing of at least 12 people and the wounding of many more at a late-night screening of the new Batman movie in Colorado. Reports indicate that the disturbed individual who committed this horrifying act had a bulletproof vest, used...
