"jon", the money transferred. You can pretend they were unrelated if you want.

Agreement details according to the wiki:
"According to the joint statement in Switzerland, the P5+1 countries and Iran agreed on a framework for a deal. According to this framework, Iran would redesign, convert, and reduce its nuclear facilities and accept the Additional Protocol (with provisional application) in order to lift all nuclear-related economic sanctions, freeing up tens of billions of dollars in oil revenue and frozen assets."

Boys, lest we forget, we don’t have that much cash hanging around. So, in addition to our cargo plane filled with pallets (plural) of cash, at the same time European banks were loading up their planes with pallets of cash to deliver to the Mullahs.

Step by step, Obama’s legacy is being erased from the chalkboard. It’s like he never existed.

No new airplanes for the mullahs -

Licenses for Boeing Co (BA.N) and Airbus (AIR.PA) to sell passenger jets to Iran will be revoked, U.S. Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin said on Tuesday after President Donald Trump pulled the United States out of the 2015 Iran nuclear agreement.

Winning!

For the first time in U.S. history, America has enough job openings to give every unemployed person in the country a job, according to data from the Labor Department on Tuesday.
There were a record 6.6 million job openings at the end of March, the Labor Department said. With unemployment down at 3.9 percent, that means there are enough jobs to employ everyone looking to work for the first time since the data began to be collected.

Gregory-

Spin the story like a Trumpster enough times and you think someone with a brain will believe you. Two different payments took place in a similar time period for two very different reasons. You choose to further the well known lie that Obama paid 400 million for nuke deal. Here are two of TEN fact check sites that ALL say they same thing. You are lying! Don't become a Todd.

Q: Did a federal court order former President Barack Obama to pay “$400 million in restitution”?

A: No. Multiple sites have carried the fictitious story.

Its another bad day for the po' ol' pollheads -

Oh jonnie, jonnie - You should have actually read what you linked to.
"Critics questioned the timing of the cash payment — made on the same day Iran released several American prisoners. The Obama administration maintained the payment was used as “leverage,” but denied that it amounted to ransom.
Oh yeah - 'leverage'. Just happened on the same day. Total coincidence.
When did Gregory say anything about a court order?
The facts remain.

That's what happens when you build a sandcastle instead of treaty -

When I suggested that all this dark metafictional play seemed a bit removed from rational debate over America’s future role in the world, Rhodes nodded. “In the absence of rational discourse, we are going to discourse the [expletive] out of this,” he said. “We had test drives to know who was going to be able to carry our message effectively, and how to use outside groups like Ploughshares, the Iran Project and whomever else. So we knew the tactics that worked.” He is proud of the way he sold the Iran deal.
“We drove them crazy,” he said of the deal’s opponents.

1). A quote for today.

“The fact that one of our two major political parties is advocating lowering the voting age to 16 is a good example of the absence of wisdom among a large segment of the adult population. What adult deems 16-year-olds capable of making a wise voting decision? The answer is an adult with the wisdom of a 16-year-old.” —Dennis Prager

2). Court appointments. Trump keeps pounding on the lib’s castle walls, much to the Dems dismay.

1.7 BILLION USD (in various currencies), in easy to ship shrink wrapped pallets. Scott O, thanks for noticing I didn't write anything about a court order.

"jon" aka Michael P. Anderson, you can claim to believe in coincidences as baldfaced as this if you want but the optics still stink two years later.

Neither Snopes or "Factcheck" (funding by Annenberg iirc) are neutral actors, and the Annenberg School may well be 100% staffed by faculty registered as DEM.

The Iran deal would not now be put to sleep by Trump had one of two things happened:
1) Obama submitted the pact to the Senate for ratification and had the Senate voted for it, or,
2) Hillary won

Better luck next time. There's a reason for Senate ratification, "jon" ... it keeps out of control presidents from doing things like that deal without political support in the open from the Congress.

Trump ran on this promise, and the Israeli dump of a ton o' documents stolen from Iran showing bad faith from the zarreshk kuni keshes in Tehran was cover too good to have been unexpected by Trump at this time.

When is a cut not a cut? When it’s money never spent from expired programs.

“Republicans just hate children, says Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer.”

Schumer railed, “Let’s be honest about what this is: President Trump and Republicans in Congress are looking to tear apart the bipartisan Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP), hurting middle-class families and low-income children, to appease the most conservative special interests and feel better about blowing up the deficit to give the wealthiest few and biggest corporations huge tax breaks.”

Oh please. Trump’s request is to rescind $15 billion in unspent money from previous years, including $7 billion from CHIP. That doesn’t jeopardize anything or anyone. Furthermore, as we’ve admonished Democrats before, taxpayers keeping more of their own money isn’t ransacking the middle class.”

Primary results.

The biggest surprise tonight was the defeat of Dennis Kucinich in Ohio’s Dem Primary for Governor. 9 parts Progressive, with one part Rand Paul in him. Anyway, surprised me. I always liked Dennis as a person. As far as politics, not so much on most issues. Still, I like him as a person. He retained those Mid-Western roots which kept him humble...and honest.

Just 3 weeks ago the Wa Compost ran a big story that Kucinich was the future of American politics. Guess the Wa P.O. done got it wrong....again. Can’t bode well for progressives. Isn’t Ohio a bellweather State?

Well now, it's starting to look more and more like the Green Libertarians pushed another national institution off the cliff.

Bill Tozer

Actually, it was two things that took down Dennis Kucinich. 1) His radical extremist stance on guns and, more importantly, 2) he said something nice about Trump.
You would think a shrewd political like Dennis would never have underestimated the ravishing insane effects TDS. has on reason. What a Utopia Boy. Fatal mistake.

From the campaign trail in Ohio:

“Rising to rebut Kucinich, [his opponent] Cordray speaks with the focused burn of a welding torch. “It’s easy to jerk a knee and have an answer that sounds good and it’s a slogan,” Cordray says of the gun issue. He’s for more moderate measures such as banning bump stocks and high-capacity magazines, and establishing universal background checks. “My job here is to find concrete, practical solutions,” he adds — “concrete” and “practical” being two of his favorite adjectives when parrying Kucinich.

Cordray’s quiet outrage continues: “Not all of us lost our way as Democrats on this stage. Not all of us became paid commentators for Fox News and praised Donald Trump’s inaugural address as a great speech.”

It’s true: After Trump’s inaugural address, Kucinich tweeted, “Great #inauguration speech @RealDonaldTrump! Congratulations & best wishes.” Then, appearing on Fox, he elaborated in a way that perfectly captured how American politics have become unmoored from the traditional left-right continuum — how, in the age of Trump, an uber-populist progressive who is as far left as anyone on social issues, on the environment, on guns, can also have more in common with a Republican president’s rhetoric on economics and foreign policy than do many Democrats who are closer to the center: “Things I’ve been talking about for 30 and more years, about doing something about these trade agreements that are causing our cities to be hollowed out and factories to be closed, about standing up for the American worker, about rebuilding the infrastructure, putting millions of people back to work, about stopping the foreign interventions, wasting trillions of dollars abroad — he covered those points, and frankly, I think that it’s important for America to read what he said, not just hear it, but to read what he said and to consider that there might be some way that we can bring this country together on the kind of principles that he laid out in the inaugural.”

Lots of MAGA hats in the crowds supporting the R primary winners. But, but, but I thought the R’s would distance themselves as far away as they could from the toxic Trump. In fact, we were told that the R’s in Congress would be so upset and against Trump they would flee Trump and block his very move so Trump would be forced to resign....last year. Guess I was told wrong. Mark the Tape and all that stuff.

From Ruminations favorite Judge on Fox News. A heads up for Trump.

"Former New Jersey Superior Court judge and Fox News senior judicial analyst Andrew Napolitano publicly warned President Donald Trump of an impending federal indictment of Michael Cohen.

“The problems for the president’s former lawyer, Michael Cohen, just continue to mount,” Napolitano observed. “And these problems, depending upon where they lead to, may draw the president in.”

“Why was a Russian billionaire giving a half a million dollars to the president’s lawyer — at the time the lawyer was paying, not only Stormy Daniels, but according to Rudy Giuliani, other women, to remain silent about their relationships to the president?” he asked. “Nobody knows the answer to this, yet.”

“But all of it is enough to provoke a federal judge in Los Angeles … to say, ‘I think we should put the case on hold, because Mr. Cohen is about to be indicted,'” he noted.

“The president’s lawyer getting indicted can’t be good for the president,” Napolitano explained.

“Mr. President, please be wary of all of this,” he cautioned.

I was just sharing information and an opinion of Judge Napolitano, am RR respected commentator on Fox News about his concerns about a potential federal indictment of the Presidents lawyer, Michael Cohen. Loos like the swamp is pretty close to home for Trump. Here is the essential question the Judge asks and is worth the contemplation of RR readers


“Why was a Russian billionaire giving a half a million dollars to the president’s lawyer — at the time the lawyer was paying, not only Stormy Daniels, but according to Rudy Giuliani, other women, to remain silent about their relationships to the president?”

"Novartis said it signed a one-year contract with Cohen’s shell company, Essential Consultants, for $100,000 per month in February 2017, shortly after Trump was inaugurated as president.

Novartis said it believed Cohen “could advise the company as to how the Trump administration might approach certain U.S. health-care policy matters, including the Affordable Care Act.” "

Daily quotes:

For the record: “Obama left the Middle East a smoking wreckage heap — a situation so grim that even Saudi Arabia, Egypt and Jordan have been forced to ally with Israel to allay fears of an Iranian regional takeover. … Barack Obama had a peculiar vision of the Middle East remade: Iran ascendant, the power of Israel checked, the Saudis chastened. He achieved that vision at the cost of tens of thousands of lives across the region. President Trump is undoing that legacy. Good riddance.” —Ben Shapiro

Upright: “Far from isolating the United States, President Trump is proving that the United States is the indispensable nation. Nations will be put to a choice: You can have access to the U.S. economy or you can have commerce with Iran — not both. Our European allies know this is not a real choice: They can’t isolate us, they need us, our markets, and the umbrella of our protection.” —Andrew McCarthy

Broken clock: “Impeachment to me is a divisive issue unless there’s something so conclusive as we saw … in Watergate. So I’ve just said to folks, ‘I wish you wouldn’t [push for impeachment]. You can talk about it in your district. In my district, it’s a very popular issue, but it’s not the path we should go on.’” —Nancy Pelosi

The bottom line: “This is a party with cause. The cause is against Donald Trump. That’s not a good enough message to deserve governing.” —former New Jersey Democrat Sen. Robert Torricelli

Braying Jenny: “People ask, ‘Why haven’t you moved on?’ And I say, ‘Well, there are tens of millions of people who haven’t moved on because there are still so many unanswered questions.’” —Hillary Clinton, who followed that up with her usual litany of blame

And last…The Left’s War On Women continues:

“To vote down someone so obviously qualified [as Gina Haspel] as political retribution for the CIA’s now-defunct interrogation program would be a travesty. President Barack Obama’s Justice Department concluded that no crimes had been committed. Moreover, as CIA veterans point out, [John] Brennan was himself deeply involved in the interrogation program, and was confirmed 63-34 as Obama’s CIA director, with only two Democrats and one independent voting against him. Why the double standard for the first woman nominated to lead the agency?” —Marc A. Thiessen

Walt@5:24PM

That's a good article, although it doesn't count until CNN or Huffington covers the same material.

I have to wonder sometimes just how many millions of dollars are being spent trying to get something, anything, on Trump. It's probably a first in the history of the world. In the past, no one in the US ever cared enough, and outside of the US they simply man up and start a coup d'etat. Heck, even the French cut right to the chase when they really wanted to bring down a President.

On this last idea, Edward Luttwak wrote a manual on the matter. I would suggest that Paul and his people simply read up on that and stop with the silly THAT-BASTARD-HAD-AN-AFFAIR-FOURTEEN-YEARS-AGO!!!! sort of thing. It just gets confusing after a while.

Prompt as always -

The occupied Golan Heights has been on high alert since Donald Trump confirmed he was pulling the US out of the Iran nuclear deal.
“The IDF views this Iranian attack very severely,” Conricus said. “This event is not over.”
In the early hours of Thursday morning, the IDF’s Arabic-language Twitter account said its military was “moving” against Iranian targets in Syria and warned Damascus not to intervene.
Syrian state media said anti-air defences were responding to a “new wave of Israeli missiles and is dropping them one by one”. It said shells fired from Israel hit southern Syria’s Quneitra province, adjacent to the Golan Heights. There were no reported casualties.
Explosions were heard in the Syrian capital as jets flew overheard.
Iran did not immediately comment.

He didn't count on a real fight.
"Mueller may now have to try the case, and Concord’s lawyers have put the special counsel on notice. The Russian company’s lawyers intend to invoke “discovery” to obtain U.S. intelligence about what they knew of Russian activities."
"“One thing you never want to do is to indict in a case that you’re not prepared to try,” McCarthy said.

Mueller tried to delay Wednesday’s hearing and floated a claim Concord had not been properly served notice."

PaulE 557pm - This may come as a complete shock to you, but just because I "admire" someone does not mean that I then am obliged to think and agree in lockstep with that person. Is that the norm with you?

Don Bessee

Welcome to the new world order of no more appeasement and you are not all that!

That isn't the norm for Paul, applied to Paul.

It is the norm for Paul to apply to others.

Happy Birthday to a person who I admire and I can't think of a thing he's written that I don't agree with in principle if not in fact.

Just like Marx, only right.

Friedrich Hayek, rest in peace.

Keep on spewing fakenews and it will come back and bite you in the ass -

During primetime hours throughout May of last year, CNN averaged 1.12 million total viewers and 399,000 demo viewers.
During the first week of May this year, CNN averaged just 859,000 total viewers and 286,000 demo viewers, which represents a jaw-dropping collapse of 23 percent and 29 percent, respectively.
By comparison, year-over-year in primetime, Fox News is up 5 percent in total viewers (2.24 million compared to 2.359 million) and experience only a 1 percent drop in the demo (453K compared to 448K).

So George I then assume you disagree with the Judges assumptions that Cohen will likely be indicted and Trump should be careful about his associations with Cohen. The judge asks "“Why was a Russian billionaire giving a half a million dollars to the president’s lawyer — at the time the lawyer was paying, not only Stormy Daniels, but according to Rudy Giuliani, other women, to remain silent about their relationships to the president?” What is your view on that question?

The latest ugly about Michael Cohen, the Swamp King. So Cohen is peddling his insights into Trump to the highest bidders. So any of you RR's think he didn'f have a little talk with Trump about these matters?

"AT&T Inc. paid President Donald Trump’s personal lawyer, Michael Cohen, up to $600,000 for insights into how the new administration might handle matters affecting its business, according to a person familiar with the matter."

re: PaulEmery@2:10PM

Well, jeez dude. I'd think you'd be worth at least $800k to ATT in that case.

Paul Emery

Thanks for the flattering comment Scenes but I'm just an old five and dimer local boy.

How come Obama couldn't free the North Korean hostages but Trump could? Any ideas?

George Rebane

If, while Trump was president, Cohen peddled his 'Trump insights' without Trump's approval, then I think that is unethical. With Trump's approval, The Donald should have negotiated a cut for himself ;-)

Sorry Paul Emery, latest news is the Cohen bank account scandal by Stoprmies so-called lawyer is a hoax. And it appears her lawyer owes the IRS five million. Now doesn't that make you sad?
