Iranian Dissimulation Versus Presidential Incompetence

Obama Iranby Dr. Miklos K. Radvanyi

In his embarrassingly unpresidential Cairo speech in 2009, President Obama stated that “in the middle of the Cold War, the United States played a role in the overthrow of a democratically elected Iranian government.”  This statement was vintage Obama.  On the one hand, he demonstrated his historical illiteracy for ignoring the hundreds of books and thousands of essays published in Iran and throughout the world about the real causes of Mohammed Mossadegh’s downfall in 1953.  On the other hand, by mindlessly parroting the KGB-manufactured disinformation about the CIA’s involvement, he signaled to the mullahs his sympathy for their hatred against the United States of America.

More tragically, Obama’s apology reflected his naivete about the root causes of the United States’ troubled relationship since 1979 with the Islamic Republic of Iran.  In his intellectually defunct book “The Audacity of Hope” he portrayed the United States as a rogue state that, from its inception, arrogantly trampled on the sovereignty of others.  In fact, he clearly intimated that he was elected to rectify the past immorality of American foreign policy not just against Iran but also toward the wider world.

Hillary looking more like Nixon as email scandal deepens

By Post Editorial Board     •     Washington Times

Hillary clinton 5Now Hillary Clinton’s being compared to President Richard Nixon by one of the two reporters famous for breaking the scandal that brought Nixon down. How much worse is the email mess going to get?

The Washington Post’s Bob Woodward laid it out Monday: “You’ve got a massive amount of data. It, in a way, reminds me of the Nixon tapes: thousands of hours of secretly recorded conversations that Nixon thought were exclusively his.”

Then came ABC News’ report that a backup server likely holds all the emails Clinton said she’d deleted — which could open up a whole new front in the probe.

More bad news: The State Department has flagged another 305 Hillary emails as likely containing classified information. This despite Clinton’s claim that such info never touched the personal account she used for all her government business. [Read more...]

Former CIA spy on Clinton emails: ‘You and I would get fired and possibly jailed’ for this

by Joseph Lawler     •     Washington Examiner

If Hillary Clinton allowed classified information onto her private server or personal phone, she should be disqualified from becoming president, former CIA spy Bob Baer said Saturday.

Baer, a former CIA officer and commentator on national security issues, said that sending or receiving top secret information is a “transgression that I don’t think the president of the United States should be allowed to have committed.”

In an interview with CNN International, Baer claimed that the markings on emails believed to have crossed the private server Clinton maintained as secretary of state represented the highest levels of secrecy in the government.

“You don’t get any more secret than that,” he said. [Read more...]

Bob Woodward: Clinton emails ‘reminds me of the Nixon tapes’

by Eddie Scarry     •     Washington Examiner

Hillary Clinton Speaks At Event At Center For American ProgressVeteran Washington Post reporter Bob Woodward on Monday compared the email controversy engulfing Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton to the downfall of President Richard Nixon.

On MSNBC’s “Morning Joe,” Woodward, who through his reporting helped break open the Watergate scandal, said it’s at least suspicious that Clinton’s emails from her tenure as secretary of state were wiped away from a server she owned privately.

“Follow the trail here,” Woodward said. “There are all these emails. Well, they were sent to someone or someone sent them to her. So, if things have been erased here, there’s a way to go back to these emails or who received them from Hillary Clinton. So, you’ve got a massive amount of data in a way, reminds me of the Nixon tapes: Thousands of hours of secretly recorded conversations that Nixon thought were exclusively his.” [Read more...]

CNN Intel Analyst: Hillary’s Server a Deal-Breaker, ‘I Can’t Tell You How Bad This Is’

by Ian Hanchett     •    Breitbart

CNN Intelligence and Security Analyst and former CIA spy Robert Baer said that Hillary Clinton’s server and the material reportedly on it is a deal-breaker, adding, “I wonder if she’s capable of being president,” “you and I’d get fired, and possibly jailed. This could be a felony,” and “[this] is a transgression that I don’t think the president of the United States should be allowed to have committed on Saturday’s “CNN Newsroom” on CNN International.

Baer said of the security classifications mentioned in reports about the material on Clinton’s server, “You don’t get anymore secret than that. ‘TK’ is talent keyhole, relates to satellite — very classified satellite photography. ‘SI’ is special intelligence, which could relate code breaking, the National Security Agency, even Snowden didn’t get into that. And if this, in fact, was on a private server, you and I’d get fired, and possibly jailed. This could be a felony.” [Read more...]

Number of Hillary Clinton’s emails flagged for classified data grows to 60 as review continues

by John Solomon     •      The Washington Times

While media coverage has focused on a half-dozen of Hillary Rodham Clinton’s personal emails containing sensitive intelligence, the total number of her private emails identified by an ongoing State Department review as having contained classified data has ballooned to 60, officials told The Washington Times.

That figure is current through the end of July and is likely to grow as officials wade through a total of 30,000 work-related emails that passed through her personal email server, officials said. The process is expected to take months.

The 60 emails are among those that have been reviewed and cleared for release under the Freedom of Information Act as part of a open-records lawsuit. Some of the emails have multiple redactions for classified information. [Read more...]

Judge orders State Department to probe Hillary Clinton’s ‘personal’ emails

by Stephen Dinan     •     Washington Times

A federal judge ordered the State Department on Thursday to work with the FBI to get access to the 32,000 emails former Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton said were personal and that she didn’t return to the government, as the courts get more deeply involved in the Democratic presidential front-runner’s email practices.

One judge is trying to decide how the government is going about determining what classified information is included in Mrs. Clinton’s messages, while another is exploring the email practices of Mrs. Clinton’s top aides, as the State Department deals with a backlog of requests for her communications, which she only recently returned to the administration.

Responding to a judge’s order, the State Department instructed Mrs. Clinton and aides Huma Abedin and Cheryl Mills to save all “federal documents, electronic or otherwise, in her possession or control,” and to assure the government that none of them will be deleted. [Read more...]

The Anti-Peace Administration

by Caroline Glick     •     RealClearPolitics

The US has striven to achieve peaceable relations between the states of the Middle East for nearly 70 years. Yet today, US government is disparaging the burgeoning strategic ties between the Sunni Arab states and Israel.

In a briefing to a delegation of visiting Israeli diplomatic correspondents in Washington last week, a senior Obama administration official sneered that the only noticeable shift in Israel-Arab relations in recent years is that the current Egyptian government has been coordinating security issues “more closely” with Jerusalem than the previous one did.

“But we have yet to see that change materialize in the Gulf.”

If this is how the US views the state of Israel’s relations with the Arabs, then Israel should consider canceling its intelligence cooperation with the US. Because apparently, the Americans haven’t a clue what is happening in the Middle East.

First of all, to characterize the transformation of Israeli-Egyptian relations as a mere question of “more closely” coordinating on security issues is to vastly trivialize what has happened over the past two years. [Read more...]

The Countless Crimes of Hillary Clinton: Special Prosecutor Needed Now

Hillary finally hands over her server—after it’s been professionally wiped clean

by Sidney Powell     •     Observer

Hillary Rodham ClintonAfter years of holding herself above the law, telling lie after lie, and months of flat-out obstruction, HIllary Clinton has finally produced to the FBI her server and three thumb drives. Apparently, the server has been professionally wiped clean of any useable information, and the thumb drives contain only what she selectively culled. Myriad criminal offenses apply to this conduct.

Anyone with knowledge of government workings has known from inception that Hillary’s communications necessarily would contain classified and national security related information. Thanks to the Inspector General for the Intelligence Community, it is now beyond dispute that she had ultra-Top Secret information and more that should never have left the State Department.

Equal to Ms. Clinton’s outrageous misconduct is that of the entire federal law enforcement community. It has long chosen to be deliberately blind to these flagrant infractions of laws designed to protect national security—laws for which other people, even reporters, have endured atrocious investigations, prosecutions, and some served years in prison for comparatively minor infractions.

Lois Lerner: GOP is “Evil and Dishonest” and targeting of conservatives was an “honest mistake”

by Andrew Kugle     •     Washington Free Beacon


Former IRS official Lois Lerner said that Republicans are “evil and dishonest,” in a email dated March 26, according to Fox News reporter James Rosen.

In the email, Lois Lerner described the time when she was called back to testify about the IRS targeting of conservatives before Congress.

“They called me back to testify, on IRS ‘scandal,” Lerner wrote. “I took the fifth again and they had been so evil and dishonest in my lawyer’s dealings with them.”

Rosen also reported that Lerner said the Citizens United Supreme Court ruling was the worst thing to happen to the United States.

White House, Allies Accuse Jewish Lawmakers of Dual Loyalty to Israel

Administration engages in anti-Semitic rhetoric to smear nuke deal opponents

by Adam Kredo     •     Washington Free Beacon

whitehouse PresidentObama 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 on its ballistic missile program.

These allegations of dual loyalty to Israel, which many have identified as anti-Semitic, began almost immediately with the White House, which accused its critics of worrying more about Israel’s interests than the United States’. [Read more...]

Obama, Clinton Foundation Donors Sold ‘Green’ Fuel to Military for $149 per Gallon

San Francisco’s Solazyme also received millions in stimulus funds from DOE

The CEO and Board of Directors of Solazyme, a company the military paid $149 per gallon for “alternative” fuel, have donated more than $300,000 to Democratic candidates and committees, according to a Washington Free Beacon analysis.

Recipients of significant donations included the Obama Victory Fund and the Democratic National Committee. Additionally, Solazyme donated between $100,000 and $250,000 to the Bill, Hillary, and Chelsea Clinton Foundation.

A Congressional Research Service (CRS) report found that the Department of Defense (DOD) paid Solazyme $149 per gallon for fuel made of algal oil, costing taxpayers a total of $223,500 in 2009. The group also received a $21 million stimulus grant from Department of Energy in 2009.

“Based in South San Francisco, Solazyme’s mission is to improve our lives and our planet by producing sustainable, high-performance oils and ingredients derived from microalgae,” the company states. Solazyme claims that their process serves as a better alternative to limited resources such as petroleum, vegetable oils, and animal fats. [Read more...]

Parsing Clinton: Deflection, Deception, and Untruths

Breaking down the campaign’s talking points on her email fiasco.

by Ron Fournier

Hillary clinton 5Having covered Bill and Hillary Clinton since the mid-1980s in Arkansas, it’s not hard for me to imagine this conversation taking place at her campaign headquarters.

Aide No. 1: “Hillary’s numbers are tanking. People don’t like her. They don’t trust her. What do we do?”

Aide No. 2: “Spin harder.”

Aide No. 1: “On it.”

And out spews these talking points from Clinton communications director Jennifer Palmieri—650 words of deception, deflection, and untruths.

1. “You might hear some news over the next few days about Hillary Clinton’s emails. There’s a lot of misinformation, so bear with us; the truth matters on this.”

Yes, it does. Go on. [Read more...]

Obama Admin Moves to Block Restitution for U.S. Terror Victims

Obama admin sides with Palestinians in landmark terror case

by Adam Kredo     •     Washington Free Beacon

Deputy Secretary of State Tony Blinken / AP

The Obama administration has intervened in a landmark legal case brought by the American victims of Palestinian terrorists, urging the court to limit restitution for the victims out of fear that a sizable payout could collapse the Palestinian government, according to a copy of the court filing.

Deputy Secretary of State Tony Blinken argued in a filing to a New York City court that a hefty payout to the victims of Palestinian terror crimes could burden the Palestinian Authority (PA) and interfere in Obama administration efforts to foster peace in the region.

The victims are entitled to as much as $655 million from the PA following the conclusion of a decade-long lawsuit that exposed the Palestinian government’s role in supporting and paying for terror attacks in Israel. [Read more...]

Hillary Clinton protected herself and left America exposed

By Washington Examiner

Hillary Clinton Speaks At Event At Center For American ProgressIt turns out that Hillary Clinton’s email scandal could in fact get worse.

It was known already that Clinton had sent at least seven emails through her unsecured private system containing information that is classified or was at the time. (There could be many more still undiscovered.) But on Tuesday night, Senate investigators revealed that two of these contained information that is “Top Secret.” The FBI is finally taking control of her server, and her candidacy is on the precipice.

Clinton, who previously maintained that she had sent no classified information at all by email, sent top-secret information that is classified as “Sensitive Compartmented” and “Talent Keyhole,” meaning it had to do with top-secret satellite imagery. When government officials with the proper classification want to process, look at or even discuss materials like the ones Clinton sent through her insecure home-based email system, they must do so within special secure government facilities where phones and other possible recording devices are prohibited.
