The proposed deal lets Iran continue to develop use advanced centrifuges which could allow for uranium enrichment as much as 20 times faster than the Islamic Republic’s current technology. After 12 years, Iran can actually resume enriching uranium, which the newspaper reported “would enable Iran to more rapidly accumulate the highly enriched uranium needed to build nuclear weapons, accelerating its breakout time to the bomb.” The source is an internal French government fact-sheet which the newspaper was able to review, but which has not been released publicly.
That timeline, however, dovetails with an acknowledgment President Obama made this week in an interview with National Public Radio. Iran’s “break-out” time to make a bomb could shrink “almost down to zero” by year 13 after any final deal is negotiated, Obama said.
Israeli analyst Ehud Yaari identified six terms in the proposed agreement in which the United States and Iran have offered different assessments. Among them: Iran believes it stands to secure immediate relief from crippling economic sanctions, while the U.S. says that relief comes in phases as various commitments are met. In addition, Iran believes it can continue to use the Fordo underground uranium enrichment plant for developing centrifuges, while the U.S. says no enrichment could take place there for 15 years.
Israeli Strategic Affairs Minister Yuval Steinitz briefed reporters Monday on recommendations which could lead to “a more reasonable agreement.” The Fordow plant must be shut down entirely, inspectors must be able to make unannounced visits “anywhere, anytime” and development of new centrifuges must be prohibited, he said.
Although Israel prefers a diplomatic solution to the issue, Steinitz acknowledged, it was still reserving the right to take military action against Iran should it be necessary.
“It’s still on the table, it’s going to remain on the table,” he said. “It’s our right and duty to decide how to defend ourselves, especially if our national security and even very existence are under threat.”
Alabama’s state climatologist, Dr. John Christy, is no stranger to drawing criticism from his peers for his stance on the prevalent theory of climate change. Now Christy and other “deniers” are being investigated by Democrats in Washington, but he says he is “past the point of being intimidated.”
A similar letter was sent to other members of the climatology community who have testified before Congress that the science is far from settled when it comes to the pace and danger of climate change.
“[The letter is] not going to work as intimidation, which is what it’s designed to do,” Christy told AL.com. “But it does have a backfire aspect to it. It emboldens you when you’ve gotten under somebody’s skin because you know this is what the real world is doing.”
Here is a graph Dr. Christy submitted to the EPA comparing global warming alarmist predictions to what actually happened:
“These models can’t even predict what happened in the past,” Christy said. “Doesn’t that ring alarm bells in your mind about trusting this as a policy tool?”
Dr. Christy’s administration at UAH is standing behind the scientist, with the university President’s chief of staff saying in a statement, Christy “has always approached his work with the utmost of integrity, and the quality of his research is nothing short of exemplary.”
Alabama Attorney General Luther Strange announced Wednesday that Alabama has joined with 13 other states in opposing the Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) new, stricter ozone regulations.
The states sent a letter to EPA chief Gina McCarthy expressing concern that the regulations are “unlawful and unachievable,” arguing that the necessity of the low limits are not supported by scientific evidence, and would be prohibitively expensive.
“Once again, the EPA is engaged in a practice of overreach that appears to be ideologically driven rather than based upon ensuring adequate projection of public health,” Attorney General Strange said. “The new rule will unnecessarily add to the costs of states’ compliance with a standard that cannot be met.”
Alabama joins 13 other states in opposing ‘overreaching, unlawful’ EPA regs. The other states are: Arkansas, Georgia, Kansas, Kentucky, Louisiana, Montana, Nebraska, North Dakota, Ohio, Oklahoma, South Carolina, West Virginia and Wisconsin also signed the letter.
This week the U.S. House passed two bills that seek to bring more accountability and transparency to the EPA.
Witnesses Say EPA’s Forthcoming Ozone Standards Impossible to Meet:
Witnesses highlighted recent data that suggests areas in virtually every state would violate the proposed new standards. Furthermore, EPA has estimated that the new standards could cost $90 billion annually.
Witnesses agreed that if EPA tightens the current ozone standard, many parts of the country will be unable to meet the new limit due to naturally-occurring or uncontrollable ozone.
Gary Palmer IS a reagan politician and we’re proud of him:
His statement is not to be missed, he calls it as he sees it and with the experience to back it up…
“The EPA is an agency with serious and systemic problems,” said Alabama Congressman Gary Palmer, who sits on the Science, Space, and Technology Committee that originally approved the bill. “It has abused its power to achieve goals which are not supported by the American people, and too often does so without sufficient transparency or public input. These bills will resolve some of these ongoing problems, and move us in the right direction by ensuring the EPA does not rely on secret, unverifiable science, and by ensuring scientific review does not become politicized.”
John Raymond Christy ,Ph.D, is a climate scientist at the University of Alabama in Huntsville (UAH) whose chief interests are satellite remote sensing of global climate and global climate change.
He is best known, jointly with Roy Spencer, who is also a Ph.D climatologist, Principal Research Scientist at the University of Alabama in Huntsville, and the U.S. Science Team leader for the Advanced Microwave Scanning Radiometer on NASA’s Aqua satellite. He has served as Senior Scientist for Climate Studies at NASA’s Marshall Space Flight Center. for the first successful development of a satellite temperature record.
John Christy has worked with Congressman Palmer here in Alabama. He has no agenda. He is not paid by special interest.
‘No one is paying me to have my view’ – John Christy
John said Tuesday that he has not accepted any funding from the fossil fuel industry. John is being probed as part of a probe of climate change skeptics. WHO that congressman speaks volumes my friends. None other then AZ Hispanic Caucus Raul Grijalva.
Ol’ Raul is buddies with yet another amnesty radical, Guttierez both radical left wing nuts, who stir up trouble every waking moment to give this country to illegals. He was instrumental in the AZ boycott against Jan Brewer in 2010.
A chart provided to AL.com (AL is our MsM in Birmingham.) by UAH climate expert John Christy that shows the disparity between climate models and research conducted by UAH. The green line is satellite data compiled by UAH while the blue is from weather balloon data compiled by an independent entity, Christy said.
Christy referred to a UAH chart that compared 102 climate models produced by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change with satellite data collected by UAH that reflects that the models are far out of step with the actual data when it comes to climate change. The chart dates from 1975 to 2014.
“These models can’t even predict what happened in the past,” Christy said. “Doesn’t that ring alarm bells in your mind about trusting this as a policy tool?”
The chart suggests warming is happening at about eight-tenths of a degree in 2014, according to the IPCC data, while the UAH data indicates warming has been about two-tenths of a degree over the same time period.
“My response is that I don’t see anything in this letter that challenges the science we produce,” he said. “So therefore, it should not matter where support came from to produce that science. (The Obama) administration believes that if you don’t agree with them about climate change, you must be being paid to have that opinion.
“In my case, they won’t find anything — 100 percent of my support is state and federal grants. No one is paying me to have my view. I have my view because I’m a climate scientist and that’s what the data shows.” ~ John Christy
So you see where this is going. As John stated if you don’t agree with this admin, you are the target. (My words)
~ Let us remind everyone of all of her crimes (long list), beginning in Arkansas until now. She needs to be vetted better then obama was. We tried to show what/who he was as Freepers. Me as a Chicagoan. But with the corrupt media AKA MsM/State Run Media, it didn’t make print.
Larry Klayman, founder of Freedom Watch and a former federal prosecutor, filed a civil suit. March 24th, against Hillary Clinton, Bill Clinton and their family foundation alleging criminal violations under the Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act (“RICO”). The suit was filed before the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Florida, Civil Action No. 9:15-cv-80388.
Klayman issued this statement:
“This is the first and only hard-hitting case to address the growing email scandal. What Hillary Clinton, her husband, and their foundation have done is nothing new. It is simply part of a criminal enterprise which dates back at least 10 years, all designed to enrich themselves personally at the expense of the American people and our nation. It’s time, however, that they finally be held legally accountable.”
Larry Klayman, reported that the RICO lawsuit accuses the Clintons of engaging in a criminal enterprise during the last 10 years with the goal of enriching themselves personally. Klayman and his organization Freedom Watch alleges that the Clintons — through mail and wire fraud, and various fraudulent statements — misappropriated government documents to which Klayman and Freedom Watch were lawfully entitled to receive and possess under the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA).
Specifically, the documents sought involve allegations that Hillary Clinton released Israeli war and cyber-warfare plans and practices.
Klayman’s complaint accuses then Secretary Hillary Clinton of being behind the release of documents to a reporter in order to thwart Israel’s secret military plans to preemptively attack Iranian nuclear sites to stop the Islamic nation’s march to producing atomic weapons.
“The goal of Alabama should be to be more like Texas, not to be more like New York, where taxes keep going up year after year, and jobs and businesses keep leaving,” Moore quipped.
Alabama Policy Institute (API), Heritage Foundation Chief Economist Steve Moore says Governor Bentley’s proposed tax increases are the wrong way to increase revenue for the state, and in fact will only serve to drive businesses and workers—the real sources of growth—away from the state:
“When states raise their taxes, especially when they raise their tax rates, that it actually leads to jobs leaving the state, it leads to higher unemployment, it leads to income decline in the state,” Moore said. “The problem with the Alabama budget right now is that the state is not growing fast enough, not enough jobs are being created. If you raise taxes on the business creators and on the workers, and on the investors, you’re going to get less businesses and you’re going to get less workers, and less investors. Under that kind of circumstance, you’re actually going to have higher unemployment, so I don’t get the logic behind raising taxes to try to balance the budget.”
Hillary Clinton’s personal email is now being hosted out of a data center in Huntsville, according to a leading tech blog.
Ars Technica was the first to report the change, tracing the move back to as early as 2010.
The email is enabled for Microsoft Outlook Web access, which could make it vulnerable to cyber attacks, Ars Technica IT Editor Sean Gallagher wrote.
“Based on server data, mail.clintonemail.com is running on an instance of Microsoft Windows Server 2008 with Internet Information Server 7.5, both of which have had numerous security vulnerabilities uncovered since this particular server was configured,” Gallagher wrote.
A “gun shop” that suddenly appeared in the heart of Manhattan last week only to close its doors after two days was actually an elaborate ruse by a pro-gun control group that sought to lure potential customers in order to make their anti-firearms case.
“These people won’t be happy until all law-abiding citizens are disarmed,” added blogger Kimberly Morin in a post on TheFederalistPapers.org.
States United to Prevent Gun Violence set up the “Guns with History Gun Shop” on Manhattan’s Lower East Side, and pretended to offer for sale guns used in high-profile crimes. The phony sales pitches were really part of a “social experiment” — pretexts for telling customers about the dangers of gun proliferation in unconsummated transactions recorded by hidden cameras, according to the group. In one such conversation, the bogus clerk shows a replica Bushmaster assault rifle like the one Connecticut State Police said Adam Lanza used in the Sandy Hook school massacre.
Pro-gun advocates called the effort a misleading stunt.
New York’s city and state gun laws are among the nation’s strictest. Residents of the five boroughs are required to apply for pistol licenses through the NYPD and must obtain special permission if they want to carry the weapon on their person. Rifles and shotguns also must be registered within city limits.
“This is a tasteless PR stunt designed to further an anti-gun agenda, and it’s out of touch with reality,” NRA spokeswoman Jennifer Baker told FoxNews.com.
Officials for SUPGV local New York office say that the stunt was cleared with the city, through the office of Mayor Bill de Blasio, and that they applied for filming permits. All the guns within the shop were props and no ammunition was on hand.
THIS is what we fought against in the 60s! This is what Martin Luther King was about!
When we let freedom ring, when we let it ring from every village and every hamlet, from every state and every city, we will be able to speed up that day when all of God’s children, black men and white men, Jews and Gentiles, Protestants and Catholics, will be able to join hands and sing in the words of the old Negro spiritual, “Free at last! free at last! thank God Almighty, we are free at last!”
He did it peaceful. Was arrested and WE stood up for him and the movement. I cried when my mother wouldn’t let me go because I was too young. I told her it would be historical!
Martin Luther King’s Address at March on Washington August 28, 1963:
Learn History. Whites fought along side of the oppression and treatment. But your president is the one now fanning the flames of racism. He and Eric Holder are the ones sending you back to this time, NOT making it better for you! They are the ones ignting your hatred. For what?!
The FCC released the rules two weeks after voting to approve them. Judge Andrew Napolitano said this goes against a statute which requires the FCC to release the rules before voting so that Congress and the public can comment.
“I see an FCC totally out of control, and I see an FCC proclaiming unto itself the authority that the statute never gave to it and that two federal courts say you don’t have, which is the ability to regulate the Internet,” Napolitano said.
Krauthammer slammed the administration’s “regulatory hunger.”
“If it moves, regulate it,” Krauthammer said.
From the Daily Caller yesterday:
“Americans love the free and open Internet,” Pai, who has led the month-long fight against plan, remarked in his dissenting statement. “We relish our freedom to speak, to post, to rally, to learn, to listen, to watch, and to connect online.”
Internet service providers, their allies and Republicans in Congress with their own proposal have already started combing through the lengthy plan, and will no doubt issue their grievances and subsequent legal challenges based on the dissenting analyses of O’Rielly and Pai, the latter of whom described the legal flaws as “glaring.”
“Unfortunately, the order released today begins a period of uncertainty that will damage broadband investment in the United States,” AT&T Vice President Jim Cicconi said in a statement. ”Ultimately, though, we are confident the issue will be resolved by bipartisan action by Congress or a future FCC, or by the courts.”
A DETERMINED BAND OF HACKERS bloggers and systems analysts train their talents and software on clintonemail.com and uncover serious lapses in security, according to data shared with Fox News.
Stirred by the controversy surrounding Hillary Clinton’s use of a private email server when she was secretary of state, a determined band of hackers, IT bloggers, and systems analysts have trained their specialized talents and state-of-the-art software on clintonemail.com, the domain under which Clinton established multiple private email accounts, and uncovered serious lapses in security, according to data shared with Fox News.
One prominent figure in the hacker community, bolstered by long experience in the U.S. intelligence community, has undertaken to build a virtual “replica” of Clinton’s server configuration in a cyberlab, and has begun testing it with tools designed to probe security defenses. This individual has shared details of the Clinton system not disclosed publicly but legally obtainable.
Among other things, outside experts have managed to trace the most recent location of Clinton’s server – something she did not specify during her news conference and a subject of much speculation, as the server’s physical placement would provide early clues about whether the data stored on it was adequately secured against compromise by private-sector hackers and foreign intelligence services.
A defiant Sen. Robert Menendez declared, “I am not going anywhere,” Friday night amid reports the Justice Department is preparing to charge the New Jersey Democrat with corruption counts over allegations he used his office to help a Democratic donor.
Menendez told a press conference about four hours after the reports surfaced that he had “always conducted myself appropriately and in accordance with the law.”
He added, “I fight for things I believe important…and for the people of our country. That’s who I am.
“I am not going anywhere.”
Attorney General Eric Holder also declined to comment on the case when asked by Fox News and President Obama ignored shouted questions by reporters as he left Marine One following a trip to South Carolina.
