First!

Safe travels Mr. M.

Ignatz Ratzkywatzky

--He regarded Iran as potentially a more natural ally of the United States than many of its Sunni-dominant neighbors, with a young, educated Western-oriented population that is tired of being ruled by an aging theocracy...

So Obama wanted to be Nixon, hoping that giving the Iranian hardliners $100 billion upfront and more money over time would prompt liberalizing reform.--

That argument can't be taken seriously and is in fact preposterous. The equivalent would have been the Pope going to Poland and giving General Jaruzelski $100 billion hoping it would lead to Solidarity taking over.
Barry and the Rock Hyrax knew, like everyone else on the planet, giving dictators pallets of cash leads to dictators doing evil things.
And they are. That's exactly what Barry and co knew would happen so one can only conclude that's what they wanted to happen.

Bringing this over from the end of the last thread:

I was unaware of what prompted the 2013 tweets about Schneiderman.

The Specator did a n article detailing Donald Trump's ethics complaint. And furthermore, it looks like in hindsight, Obama was behind Schneiderman's harassment of Trump.

I doubt Barry grasps what liberalizing reform means. Everything he's touched has turned deadly while he, Clinton, Kerry & others skate.

It'll be an amusing to watch the MSM contort themselves up in knots as they continuously lie about the reasons we pulled out of this deadly Iranian deal while the new SOS returns home with three released prisoners!

Miss M. Thanks for your Twitter updates!

The Latin phrase answer.

sananda sunt = must be healed

Barry Ojarret had a chance to support the Iranian freedom fighters in 2009 and didn't do a damn thing as they were gunned down.

Like the dictators using the money to buy state of the art weaponry that was then used to kill and maim american soldiers.

Bela1,

You are most welcome! I find Twitter is better than having a news channel on, as long as they aren't shadow-banning some of the people I follow. You get a good feel for what is making news without the filter of a news corporation.

Duranty whitewashed the holomodor, Matthews did something miss Daniels demanded triple scale with Fidel, Harrison Salisbury pled mercy for who, fox Butterfield did come to terms with Mao deeds somewhat and schamberg likewise with year zero.

Reposted from the previous thread because I'm a Latin nerd and I worked on it for fifteen minutes:

sananda has the root sanis, healthy/clean, so I'm guessing it means 'heal'...

'sananda' is giving me some grief

OL,

Lance Fritz of UPRR told us a few weeks back that UP has drones that will autonomously inspect their 400+ miles of bridges without risking any employee’s lives hanging off the sides in cherry picker buckets. Currently, they still have to spot check flaws in the bucket, but will soon be able to document the whole thing remotely. Huge cost reduction as well as great safety improvement.

By taking the prospect of nuclear weapons off the table, the Obama administration had argued, the United States and Iran could chip away at three decades of hostility and work on common projects, starting with the defeat of the Islamic State.

That argument can't be taken seriously and is in fact preposterous.

Exactly right. A complete lie.

I'd like to see an investigation into where the money went, and in particular how much Corker got or was planning to get. Same for the rest of the supporters of the transparently phony deal.

You know, the kind of people like Blumenthal and others who profited after Quadaffi was waxed.

JiB,

Depending on how far away you are willing to let your kid go to school, the University of Alabama at Birmingham is a public university that is well known for having strong medical related programs. Attending school there has the added benefit of him getting exposed to Southern hospitality as well as Southern women.

The article states GEN Kelly agreed with Rosenstein and convinced Trump to support Rosenstein's position. IMO this supports the idea Nunes is just acting out his role in the kabuki theater script.

Bolton: ‘I Think Iran Is Bringing Us Closer to War’ With Its Belligerent Activity

"I think Iran is bringing us closer to war with its belligerent activity in Iraq and Syria … It's that aggressive militaristic behavior by Iran on the ground in the region that's the real threat, " Bolton said on "CBS This Morning."

...

Bolton was asked if there was a "plan b" to handle Iran's nuclear program.

"I think plan ‘b' is already being implemented," Bolton said. "When the president signed the decision memorandum yesterday, he began the process of putting very strict U.S. sanctions back in effect. That will have a significant ripple effect on Iran's economy."

Statement from the Press Secretary on the release of the hostages:

At the direction of President Donald J. Trump, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and other representatives of the United States government traveled to Pyongyang, North Korea on May 9 to prepare for the President’s upcoming meeting with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un. During Secretary Pompeo’s visit, the North Korean leadership released three American detainees. President Trump appreciates leader Kim Jong Un’s action to release these American citizens, and views this as a positive gesture of goodwill. The three Americans appear to be in good condition and were all able to walk on the plane without assistance. All Americans look forward to welcoming them home and to seeing them reunited with their loved ones.

Confirmed: Scott Pruitt Receiving High Number Of Threats

New information reveals EPA Administrator Scott Pruitt receives a high volume of threats to his safety, giving credence to claims that his around-the-clock security is necessary for his protection.

...

For example, his daughter received threatening comments on Facebook throughout the spring of 2017. One gruesome message read, “I hope your father dies soon, suffering as your mother watches in horror for hours on end.” The threat was placed under IG investigation and it is believed that the Facebook account behind the message has been deleted.

An investigation was initiated when Republican Oklahoma Sen. James Lankford’s office received an email in April 2017 that read, “We support the assassination and execution of Scott Pruitt who will rape this country and the EPA.”

The email also called for the deaths of President Donald Trump, Vice President Mike Pence and “most other terrorist pig republicans.” Agents promptly interviewed the individual behind the message. The Oklahoma person claimed Pruitt was “just a pawn for the oil and gas industry,” but did not actually want to have him killed. Agents did not pursue prosecution, but did bar the person from entering any EPA facility.

EU to seek exemptions for European companies from Iran sanctions

European Union officials will seek exemptions for European companies from sanctions the U.S. plans to impose on Iran, The Financial Times reported on Wednesday. The EU in its bid to save the 2015 nuclear accord with Iran and six other countries will have to convince European companies including French oil producer Total SA FP, +1.76% and defense contractor Airbus SE AIR, -1.14% to continue investing in and making deals with Iran in the face of threats of extraterritorial U.S. fines, the report said.

I'm surprised Dennis didn't run as a Green Party candidate or libertarian after the commiecrats stabbed him in the back with that horrible redistricting to save Marcia Fudge's fat ass among others. He siphoned off the BernieBro's vote but I never thought he was a serious threat to Cordray.

It's true that after eight years of a louse like Katshit that the Ohio voters decide to punish the state GOP by electing a Donk, a lesson the dumbasses never learn. But the number of GOP primary voters was much larger than the dems which has to have the bankrupt party petrified despite that blue wave nonsense happy talk. There's a lot of time between now and November and neither candidate looks like a campaign dynamo. Cordray looks like he could bore people into a coma. I think as of now the race is in favor of DeWine.

Thought about that pathetic bridge when we drove past the YUGE complex that Charles Schwab build south of Lincoln Ave in Lone Tree (DEN). They built a pedestrian bridge across Lincoln that is a thing of beauty. It is a cantilevered suspension bridge with a elegant tower that looks like the scroll S at the beginning of a music score. I think it was corporate money to allow their employees to frequent shops/bars on the north side of the highway. Bet they built it for a fraction of that disaster in FL.
