Happy Earth Day, Everyone!

Earth Day Co-Founder Killed, Composted Girlfriend
Ira Einhorn preached against Vietnam War and violence, but had a dark side

Ira Einhorn was on stage hosting the first Earth Day event at the Fairmount Park in Philadelphia on April 22, 1970. Seven years later, police raided his closet and found the “composted” body of his ex-girlfriend inside a trunk.

He’s STILL better than YOU, and don’t you forget it.

Obama Kept Iran’s Short Breakout Time a Secret

The Barack Obama administration has estimated for years that Iran was at most three months away from enriching enough nuclear fuel for an atomic bomb. But the administration only declassified this estimate at the beginning of the month, just in time for the White House to make the case for its Iran deal to Congress and the public.

Speaking to reporters and editors at our Washington bureau on Monday, Energy Secretary Ernest Moniz acknowledged that the U.S. has assessed for several years that Iran has been two to three months away from producing enough fissile material for a nuclear weapon. When asked how long the administration has held this assessment, Moniz said: “Oh quite some time.” He added: “They are now, they are right now spinning, I mean enriching with 9,400 centrifuges out of their roughly 19,000. Plus all the . . . . R&D work. If you put that together it’s very, very little time to go forward. That’s the 2-3 months.”

Brian Hale, a spokesman for the Office of the Director of National Intelligence, confirmed to me Monday that the two-to-three-month estimate for fissile material was declassified on April 1.

Here is the puzzling thing: When Obama began his second term in 2013, he sang a different tune

Would I tell you something that wasn’t true…?*

Apologies to Annie Lennox

ths update: Lemme get this straight. So it sounds like we’re NOT slowing them down at ALL, bomb-wise.

To the unwashed and uneducated, THIS SOUNDS like we want to BUT IT FOR THEM.

State Department Won’t Rule Out $50 Billion ‘Signing Bonus’ For Iran
Largest cash infusion to terror regime in recent memory, experts say

The State Department on Monday would not rule out giving Iran up to $50 billion as a so-called “signing bonus” for agreeing to a nuclear deal later this year, according to comments made to journalists following reports that the Obama administration had formulated a plan to release tens of billions of frozen Iranian funds.

Experts have said this multi-billion dollar “signing bonus” option, which was first reported by the Wall Street Journal, could be the largest cash infusion to a terror-backing regime in recent memory.

A cash release of $30 to $50 billion upon reaching a final nuclear agreement would come in addition to the more than $11 billion in unfrozen assets that Iran will already have received under an interim nuclear accord reached in 2013.

And Now Some CHEESE

Slàinte mhath!

I Guess the Name “Adam Smith”

…rings no bells with this pretentious princess.

ESPN has “suspended” the delicate college graduate for a week. A FRICKING WEEK.

She’s apologized for letting her frustration get the better of her, but NEITHER for her unkind words, NOR directly to the tow company cashier.

She needs to HAVE no job. Like another entitled asshat who used his superior station in life to berate an undeserving, lower tier employee.

Karma should show THIS bitch what a REAL one looks like.

Don’t Forget the $600K/yr NBC Job…

‘I want a BIG paycheck for Michelle’: Obama thinks jet-setting first lady needs more than vacations

Because jetting around the world to exotic locations and staying in 5-star luxury resorts is not as easy as it appears, President Obama thinks first lady Michelle Obama should get a paycheck — and not just any paycheck.

On the very day millions of Americans begrudgingly pay their tax debt to Uncle Sam, Obama proposed to add to that burden by advocating for a paycheck for the first lady, according to Breitbart News.

“Now Michelle would point out first ladies get paid nothing, so there’s clearly not equal pay at the White House when it comes to her and me,” the president said Wednesday at a townhall in South Carolina.

Proving how out of touch he is with ordinary Americans who struggle to come up with the money to write their annual check to the U.S. Treasury, Obama went for it all, calling the issue a “no brainer.”

I want a big paycheck for Michelle,” he said.

Of COURSE Michelle would “point out First Ladies get PAID nothing“. Of COURSE she would. Why, there’s no compensation in the WORLD for the trials and travails they experience, right?

Last I heard, nobody had a gun to her head to stay a single night in that little ol’ house.

As if Michelle’s tax-payer funded roof-over-her-head mansion (complete with swanky banquets and fantasy guest lists) and no-limits, globe-trotting junkets weren’t like a brass ring of some sort, NOW we have to be guilt tripped into PAYING her to enjoy them.

College basketball player Lauren Hill dies of brain cancer

Lauren Hill, the 19-year-old college basketball player whose fight with terminal brain cancer put her on the national stage, died early Friday morning, Local12.com reported.

The Mount St. Joseph student gained international attention when she decided to play on the freshman basketball team even as her inoperable brain tumor was sapping her of coordination and energy. She played the team’s opener against Franklin College and scored two points before being replaced in the first quarter.

“This was my dream, to score on this floor, and it felt amazing,” Hill told WLWT.

Hill set a goal of $2.2 million for research and treatment of the type of cancer she developed more than a year ago, Diffuse Intrinsic Pontine Glioma (DIPG). Hill fundraised for The Cure Starts Now Foundation. According to The Cure Starts Now’s Facebook page, Hill’s efforts raised more than $1.4 million for DIPG research.

Tears my heart out.

The Obama Administration: The Acknowledged Experts

…at making no friends and negatively influencing people.

…The case was brought by the attorneys general of 26 states seeking to stop the president’s decision to grant quasi-legal status and work permits to millions of illegal immigrants. The controversy that angered Judge Hanen involved the timing of the president’s new measures. Administration lawyers told the court that the first part of the president’s action, expansion of DACA, or Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, was scheduled to begin Feb. 18, 2015. The second part, known as DAPA, or Deferred Action for Parents of Americans and Lawful Permanent Residents, was scheduled to go into effect in mid-May.

In court arguments, Hanen specifically asked the administration lawyers whether the Department of Homeland Security would begin implementing DACA before Feb. 18. They said no. Hanen therefore issued an injunction temporarily stopping DACA on Feb. 16, two days before it was scheduled to go into effect. At that point, Hanen thought he had stopped things while he considered the larger issues of the lawsuit, which focus on the constitutionality of Obama’s action.

The judge was stunned when, on March 3, administration lawyers filed a “Defendant’s Advisory” admitting that the administration had begun implementing the expanded DACA program back in November, and had in fact granted new protections and work permits to “approximately 100,000 people” by the time administration lawyers told the judge nothing was happening.

And…

SNAP.

US WIMP-OUT ON IRAN DEAL?
France claims Kerry team caved to
keep Iranians at the table, get a deal

US reportedly backed down on initial goals in Iran talks

U.S. negotiators reportedly lowered the bar for their own goals during talks over Iran’s nuclear program in response to resistance from the Tehran team. And, on the heels of a framework deal being announced in Switzerland, France’s top diplomat on Friday admitted his country had initially held out for firmer terms.

The emerging reports indicate the U.S. team, led by Secretary of State John Kerry, gradually backed down over the course of the talks as Iran’s delegation dug in. The Wall Street Journal, citing current and former U.S. representatives at the discussions, claimed the White House had initially hoped to persuade Iran to dismantle much of the country’s nuclear infrastructure when talks started in late 2013, only to be told categorically that Iran would not do so.

Harry Reid is a Lying, Revolting Scumbag

So BFD ~ SoCom and State Told Them to Surrender Their Weapons

After all, what difference would it make?

The commandant of the Marine Corps told lawmakers that Marines who disarmed before departing Sanaa, Yemen during an embassy evacuation last month did so on the orders of U.S. Central Command and State Department officials.

Gen. Joseph Dunford fielded hard-edged questions on the mission Tuesday morning from Rep. John Kline, R-Minn., during a hearing before the House Armed Services Committee. Kline, a retired Marine officer, is the author of a letter to the State and Defense departments demanding detailed answers about a controversial order to Marines to destroy their weapons and depart the country unarmed.

Just…

BRILLIANT.

:D

First Lady celebrates Iranian New Year at the White House

1. Celebrating culture
To introduce Obama, University of Maryland student Ashley Azmoodeh spoke about her own family’s connection to the holiday and its importance.

“The most memorable celebration from my childhood, one that we continue to celebrate annually, is Nowruz, meaning ‘New Day,’” Azmoodeh said.

The First Lady paid homage to the holiday by noting its long history and cultural significance for people around the world.

“For more than 3,000 years, families and communities in the Middle East, Asia and all around the world, including here in the United States, have celebrated this holiday to mark the renewal of the Earth in spring time,” Obama said.

Sinking Like a STONE

US Producer Price Index down 0.5% in Feb vs. up 0.3% expected

U.S. producer prices unexpectedly fell in February on weak trade margins, pointing to muted inflation pressures that could argue against an anticipated June interest rate hike from the Federal Reserve.

The Labor Department said on Friday its producer price index for final demand fell 0.5 percent after dropping 0.8 percent in January. It was the fourth straight monthly decline in the PPI.

Unexpected.

“…Since a White Officer…”

“…killed an unarmed black teenager there in August.”

With media friends like responsible news agency Reuters explaining the complete circumstances of every officer involved death, it’s just amazing there aren’t more attempted summary executions of random police officers. The only thing they’re missing is Al Sharpton’s byline.

MacDonald’s Is Hitting the ReSet Button

…again. Perhaps the gobbledygook coming out of corporate gives one an idea of WHY they’re tanking.

“Creating consistently relevant and satisfying customer experiences have been hallmarks of McDonald’s business and historic success,” the company said in a statement.

“However, consumer needs and preferences have changed, and McDonald’s current performance reflects the urgent need to evolve with today’s consumers, reset strategic priorities and restore business momentum. The goal going forward is to be a true destination of choice around the world and reassert McDonald’s as a modern, progressive burger company.”

Perhaps if they went back to BURGERS as their focus, life wouldn’t be treating them so harshly?

Just a thought.

Menendez Pulls No Punches: Takes Shots at Rice, ‘Political Friends,’ Nuclear ‘Mothballing’

The Democratic author of Iran sanctions measures that have drawn ire from the Obama administration took aim at his critics and embraced his allies in a passionate address before the American Israel Public Affairs Committee.

Sen. Robert Menendez (D-N.J.), the ranking member on the Foreign Relations Committee, also took a dig at National Security Advisor Susan Rice as he rallied the conference crowd in the speaking slot after the administration official.

“I take issue with those who say the prime minister’s visit to the United States is ‘destructive’ to U.S.-Israel relations,” Menendez said. Rice made such comments in an interview with PBS aired last week.

And tomorrow I will be proud when I escort Prime Minister Netanyahu to the House Chamber to give his speech,” he continued. “To show him the respect he deserves from every American who cares about our relationship with the only true democracy in the Middle East.

The senator stressed that “when it comes to defending the U.S.-Israel relationship, I am not intimidated by anyone — not Israel’s political enemies, and not by my political friends when I believe they’re wrong.”

Menendez noted the “political timing” of Netanyahu’s speech “may have been unfortunate,” but British Prime Minister David Cameron of Great Britain came to Washington in January to lobby Congress against Iran sanctions.

It seems to me that if it’s okay for one prime minister to express his views, it should be good for all prime ministers,” he said.
