Russia Pushes Reset Button–
Missile reads: “To be personally delivered to Obama.”
In March 2009 Hillary Clinton announced that the Obama Adminstration was going to push the reset button with the Russians.
Unfortunately, the administration bungled their delivery and spelled out “overcharge” rather than “restart” on their prop.

This week Russia pushed its own reset button…
Russians paraded a missile on Army Day marked “to be personally delivered to Obama.”
The missile included a Communist hammer and sickle on the front.
A federal court has ruled that the Obama administration’s plan to issue work permits to illegal immigrants is–this is not exactly a surprise–illegal. But the Democrats are undeterred. Today, for the fourth time, they filibustered funding for the Department of Homeland Security, insisting that if Obama’s illegal program isn’t funded, the entire DHS must be shut down.
In the meantime, it has come to light that the Obama administration has been handing out illegal work permits for years. The Center for Immigration Studies has received documents in response to a Freedom of Information Act request that indicate millions of such illegal work permits have been issued since 2009.
The NY Times and the AP reported today on a proposal in Geneva now being considered which would allow Iranians to continue nuclear production with limitations for ten years but with a corresponding easing of sanctions.
The Associated Press (AP) reported that a potential deal would phase out restrictions on Iran’s uranium enrichment activities in the final years which would potentially allow them to build a nuclear weapon unobstructed towards the end of the term.
The core idea would be to reward Iran for good behavior over the last years of any agreement, gradually lifting constraints on its uranium enrichment and slowly easing economic sanctions, AP reports.
In other words, they can not only be a nuclear threshold state with the the ability to eventually have the bomb. Sanctions, our one bargaining chip, would be thing of the past.
