Report: Obama Has Already Given Iran 80% Of What They Want.

Israel's Channel 10 has reported that Israeli officials are convinced the Obama administration has already agreed to most of Iran’s demands in the P5+1 negotiations over the Islamic Republic’s nuclear program.
According to unnamed officials, Washington “has given the Iranians 80 percent of what they want” out of the negotiations, Channel 10 is reporting.

Jerusalem officials appear alarmed at the prospect that the United States will soon strike a deal with the Iranian regime that will leave it with a “breakout capacity” of months during which it can gallop toward a nuclear bomb.

The practical significance of the American compromises in the talks is that Iran will be permitted to keep over 7,000 centrifuges, enough for the Iranians to produce enough enriched material to sprint toward the bomb within a matter of months.
This report seems to agree with last week's senate testimony of Deputy Secretary of State Anthony Blinken who admitted the White House is no longer negotiating stop Iran from breaking out to nuclear weapons, only to get a better "alarm" if the rogue nation tries to make the leap.

It is that belief driving Netanyahu's acceptance of Speaker Boehner's invitation to speak to Congress.

That may also be the reason why the Obama administration does not want congress to vote on any nuclear agreement with Iran. The constitution requires the Senate approve each treaty with a two-thirds vote. However if the agreement does not bind a future presidency it isn't considered a treaty and thus does not need Senate approval. And that is exactly what the administration intends on doing.
Channel 10 reported that Netanyahu spoke to a number of Democratic lawmakers in Congress. The premier sought to assuage their concerns that the Israeli leader was using his speech before a joint session of the house in order to undermine Obama’s foreign policy.

Netanyahu’s scheduled speech sparked an uproar in Washington, with Democrats accusing House speaker John Boehner of inviting the premier to speak before Congress as a means of whipping up opposition to the Obama administration’s talks with Iran.

Sources in Jerusalem told Channel 10 that the prime minister views the Iranian nuclear issue as one of paramount importance for Israel’s security. The urgency of the matter – and not partisan politics - is what motivated Netanyahu to violate diplomatic protocol and accept the Republican leadership’s invitation to address the Congress on the need for more sanctions against Iran, Channel 10 quotes officials as saying.
If nothing changes, when a new sanctions bill is brought to the Senate floor in late March it will have the 68 votes it needs for a veto-proof majority, 16 of those votes will be Democratic Senators. The Democratic 16 include the 10 who earlier this week sent a letter to Obama informing him of their support of additional sanctions (Menendez, Schumer, Blumenthal, Peters, Casey, Cardin, Coons, Manchin, Donnelly, Stabenow), the three not on the letter who supported the bill in Thursday's committee vote (Tester, Heitkamp Warner), and three who cosponsored the same bill when it was proposed by the Senate in the previous Congress.
“It is possible to solve procedural problems related to my appearance in the United States,” he said, “but if Iran obtains nuclear arms that is something that will be a lot more difficult to solve, and that is what we are opposed to and are focusing on.”

“We are in a continuous struggle with Iran which is opening new fronts against us, which is engaged in terrorism in the Middle East and throughout the world,” Netanyahu said. “This is the same Iran that the world powers are now working toward an agreement that would leave in its hands the ability to develop a nuclear bomb. That is an agreement we are opposed to.”
Bibi's trip is not about politics as the liberal media claims, it's all about the safety of all Israeli  citizens.

UPDATE: Mitt Says NO-> Listen to his Conference Call Announcement

In a strange statement given on a conference call to supporters, 2012 GOP standard-bearer Mitt Romney announced he would not be a candidate for President right now, but left the door open for changing his mind later in the campaign.

The conference call was scheduled just hours after Romney lost one of his most trusted political advisers, David Kochel, who announced on Thursday that he was joining the Jeb Bush campaign.

Romney began the call by announcing his belief that he could win the nomination and that he had a 2 to 1 lead over the second-ranked candidate in the latest poll. He continued by saying that he "would have the best chance of beating the eventual Democratic nominee but that's before the other contenders have had the opportunity to take their message to the voters.​"

While saying he is not going to form a PAC or hiring any staffers Romney didn't eliminate the possibility that he would change his mind. "I've been asked and will certainly be asked again if there are any circumstances whatsoever that might develop that could change my mind. That seems unlikely." "Unlikely" does not mean never, and in political-speak it means "maybe."
Video Below:

According to CNN->Mitt Romney has made a decision about whether or not he will go forward with a 2016 presidential campaign according to a source familiar with Romney's plans, CNN's Dana Bash reports. This source would not say what the decision is, but did say that Romney will announce the decision on an 11:00 AM phone call with supporters.

Romney is probably announcing today because he's been fighting with Jeb Bush for the same donors, political operators, etc.

Yesterday the AP reported that Romney has lost some key support:
The donors, in interviews with The Associated Press, said they see in Bush what they liked about Romney in 2012, the capacity to serve successfully as president, but also something Romney could not muster over two campaigns: the personality and senior staff needed to win the White House.T

"I've got great respect for Gov. Romney, and I busted my buns for him," said Chicago investor Craig Duchossois, whose wife contributed $250,000 to a pro-Romney super PAC while he collected tens of thousands more for Romney's last campaign. "But I have turned the page."

Beyond the donors, Romney lost one of his most trusted political advisers on Thursday when David Kochel joined Bush's team. Kochel, who led Romney's campaign in Iowa in 2008 and 2012, is in line to play a senior role in Bush's campaign should he run, Bush spokesman Kristy Campbell said.
If he does try a third time, Romney's announcement will take the form of establishing a PAC not necessarily an announcement that he is running.

Chris Kylie Is Still A Hero And Jesse Ventura Is Still A Scumbag

Former Minn. Gov/Professional Conspiracy theorist/Scumbag Jesse Ventura couldn't resist taking one more shot at the late Chris Kyle saying one of the reasons he wouldn't see "American Sniper" was that Kyle is a liar.

Jesse Ventura may be the only ex-Navy Frogman launched a defamation suit against the estate of a Former seal who was a war hero, over a incident mentioned in the hero's book. The hero being Chris Kyle, the most lethal sniper in U.S. Military History, and the incident related in his book American sniper doesn't even mention the self-serving creep. In the end he won the suit and Ventura who doesn't need the cash took $1.8 million from the widow of a war hero.

Ventura seen above wearing a boa like the clown he is, told the Associated Press he won't see the film partly because Kyle is no hero to him:
"A hero must be honorable, must have honor. And you can't have honor if you're a liar. There is no honor in lying," Ventura told The Associated Press from his winter home in Baja California, Mexico. He also noted that the movie isn't playing there.

Ventura also dismissed the movie as propaganda because it conveys the false idea that Iraq had something to do with the 9/11 attacks. "It's as authentic as 'Dirty Harry,'" he said, referring to fictional movie series starring Clint Eastwood, the director of "American Sniper."
How would he know if he hasn't seen the movie?

In the end it doesn't mention because a decade from now Chris Kyle will still be recognized as a hero, and Jesse Ventura will be remembered as a clown, and a low-life scumbag who took almost $2 Million from the widow of a war hero, and then continue to try and disparage his memory.

One of Taliban 5 Traded For Bergdahl Returns To Conflict (But Hillary Said They Weren't Threat)

It's probably the first of many. CNN is reporting that one of the Taliban leaders traded for Sgt Bowe Bergdahl has returned to the fight directly under the nose of the Qatar govt. supposedly monitoring them. The development has led to an ongoing debate inside the administration about whether there is a new threat from this man, and potentially the other four.
Several U.S. officials across different agencies and branches of the U.S. government have confirmed key details to CNN. The White House referred CNN to the Pentagon, and the Pentagon has declined to comment on the matter.

The officials would not say which of the five men is suspected. But an ongoing U.S. intelligence program to secretly intercept and monitor all of their communications in Qatar turned up evidence in recent months that one of them has "reached out" to try to encourage militant activity, one official said. The official would offer no further details. Under current law, this act placed the man in the category of being "suspected" of re-engaging in terrorist or insurgent activities. However several officials say there is now a debate inside the administration that the intelligence may be stronger than the "suspected" classification. Some elements of the intelligence community believe the information is strong enough to classify the man as "confirmed" for returning to illegal activities. One official told CNN all five men are having their communications even more closely monitored right now, but the belief is there is no current threat.

Under intelligence laws, the definition of "confirmed" for returning to militant activity is that there is a " preponderance of information which identifies a specific former GITMO detainee as directly involved in terrorist or insurgent activities. The definition of 'suspected" is that there is "plausible but unverified or single-source reporting indicating a specific former GITMO detainee is directly involved in terrorist or insurgent activities."
Personally I find this report hard to believe after all didn't Hillary Clinton say the Taliban 5 was no threat to the U.S.? Clinton is the presumptive Democratic Party nominee for president.  And we all know the Democrats would never nominate a candidate with a naive view of terrorism and threats to America....Oh wait a second.

Back in June she said on The Today Show "These five guys are not a threat to the United States. They are a threat to the safety and security of Afghanistan and Pakistan. It's up to those two countries to make the decision once and for all that these are threats to them. So I think we may be kind of missing the bigger picture here. We want to get an American home, whether they fell off the ship because they were drunk or they were pushed or they jumped, we try to rescue everybody.”

Scientist Explains Why It's Not Warming Like The Computers Predict -->It's A Fluke

Well they have finally done it.  For years the forces behind the climate change hypothesis have been trying to explain why all their computer models say its supposed to be getting warmer when the real climate hasn't changed in over 18 years.  Their's a fluke.  Their models are perfect..and the pause is just chance occurance. No really that's what they are  saying.

An article called "Are climate models really reliable?" on the Deutsche Welle (DW) website claims, "For years, meteorologists have been observing a discrepancy between climate models and global warming in the real world. But an international team of researchers claims this is just a fluke."
There was a specific problem that puzzled Marotzke [Jochem Marotzke, director at the Max Planck Institute for Meteorology in Hamburg] and his British colleague Piers M. Forster.

"We knew that the surface temperature of the earth has been stagnant for 15 years, whereas the models show progressive warming," said Marotzke, referring to the problem.

Were the current climate models therefore wrong? Was there a systematic error in the models? Is global warming just a nightmare? Jochem Marotzke didn't start this research to prove or disprove anything.

"We just wanted to grasp where this discrepancy between models and observations is coming from," explained the meteorologist, when asked about the motivation for his most recent study.

Just a fluke?

The research team has just published his results in the journal Nature. With the help of a multi-step calculation, Marotzke and Forster ruled out systematic errors in the models. Instead, the researchers now blamed serendipity for the current lull in global warming. On the basis of their calculations, they say there is no reason to doubt current forecasts detailing strong global warming.

For laymen this may sound overly simplistic. Are the scientists just blaming chance because they can't find another explanation? Marotzke has no problem with his latest findings.

"As meteorologists, we know that chance and chaos dominate the weather. You have to face the fact that chance plays a big role here."

"It's important that you can clearly distinguish between what happens randomly and what can be explained - which also improves our models," he added.

Marotzke is certain that climate models do not overestimate man-made climate change. In his opinion, this means that global warming will have reached a grave magnitude by the end of this century, if massive climate policy measures are not taken.

In this respect, Marotzke is quite happy after all that his research findings are noted and find their way into public debate.
I hope Mr Marotzke doesn't get caught committing a crime, "Gee Officer, I didn't really kill that guy, it was a fluke."
Here's the truth. Instead of admitting the model is wrong and the possibility that the climate change hypothesis has multiple holes in his logic, Mr. Marotzke says it was a fluke to cover up his errors. I can't wait till he investigates how one sock disappears when I dry my laundry.
