    Rep Clyburn is a GO on #IranDeal

    • August 5, 2015 at 11:07 am

      Which was ALWAYS ‘on the table’ and Bibi and the #NEOCONSTERS hate that fact because it interferes with their lust for WAR and COLONIAL EXPANSION on the West Bank and, eventually, Gaza.

    Congrats, Allison! Yay for Clyburn, but why wouldn’t ALL Democrats support their President and SOS on this major deal? AIPAC has been almost as sacred a cow as the NRA, so good for President Obama speaking strongly about their divisiveness!

      “Peoples’ Democratic Party – HDP

      Interview with Our Co Chair Selahattin Demirtaş: Erdogan ‘exploiting bomb attack to overturn election result’

      The Sunday Times
      2 August, 2015

      Turkey’s opposition leader, Selahattin Demirtas, has accused President Recep Tayyip Erdogan of trying to exploit an ISIS suicide bombing in the southeast of the country to bolster his own power, writes Gareth Jenkins in Ankara.

      Demirtas, a Kurd, said Erdogan was attempting to use the attack in Suruc last month to overturn the result of June’s general election that cost the president’s party its majority.

      “Erdogan refused to accept the outcome of the election and the Suruc massacre gave him an opportunity,” said Demirtas, leader of the largely Kurdish People’s Democratic party (HDP).”

      More at the link in the tweet.

      And, just so they know at least some of us are following the reality of Erdogan ….

    “This Iran deal is where Democrats will either stand up for their President and the principles of diplomacy and peace or else they will bow to mighty AIPAC and swear allegiance to a country that isn’t the one they’re elected to govern.”

    “Steve Israel has chosen the latter.”

        Hey Meta, This is completely O/T but wanted to share with you and the other OFA bloggers that our Vero is getting married this weekend. I am thrilled for her. She is doing quite well as an attorney in Virginia.

        • August 5, 2015 at 12:11 pm

          Oh, that is WONDERFUL!! If you have a chance, please give her my very BEST. I’m thrilled that she’s found so much success. Miss her.

    Chuck Schumer and Steve Israel are a shanda (embarrassment and disgrace) to sane New York residents. New York Jews, particularly. Me, for example.

    These two dopes are leaders?!?!?!? of the Democratic party. Clinton partisans.
    Where exactly are they attempting to lead the rest of us?

    Maybe he was chatting with Jim Clyburn and Chris Murphy.

    Pundit Roger Stone is a longtime supporter of Donald Trump, and frequently appears on TV to defend his controversies and push his platforms. On July 28, Stone tweeted that political contributor Ana Navarro and NewsOne Now host Roland Martin were only hired by CNN in order to fulfill “quotas”:

    Is there a way to prevent Schumer from getting the leadership position? I would prefer our loyal Patty Murray….

    • August 5, 2015 at 1:05 pm

      Me too, otter. Durbin would be better then Schumer, but I like Patty Murray best. We need to let Harry Reid and our own Senators know how we feel about this.

      • 54 otter44
        August 5, 2015 at 1:45 pm

        good idea. I will call Reid tomorrow and let Murray and Cantwell know my views. I have been bending the ears of NY friends to shout out to Schumer.

  20. August 5, 2015 at 12:03 pm

    Strong, brilliant start!!!

    Will enjoy savoring the full speech much later today when I get a break ….

      I always suspected that by the end of this speech — many of these on-the-fence Dems would become “yesses.” Soon Schumer will be left standing all by himself.

        HEhe..Knoller must have leftover birthday cake (after stuffing his face all day yesterday, no doubt) from PBO’s 54th…that would sweeten him quite a bit. The sweetness might last as long as there are leftovers…. 🙂 🙂

      Hello dear HZ. Yes it was a truth-filled speech which I enjoyed listening to very much. I’ve made my calls to our CA congress people and I hope others around the US are doing the same.

    • August 5, 2015 at 1:10 pm

      YES!! This brilliant speech should be re-broadcast in prime time. The stakes are so high.

    Even if I wasn’t in support of the Iran Deal before, after listening to that speech I would be in support of it. Thank you President Obama.

  49. August 5, 2015 at 1:01 pm

    Pres Obama just instructed the nation on GOP and #Netanyahu lies and the value of peace over war.

  50. August 5, 2015 at 1:03 pm

    BOOM
    Nobody can make a persuasive argument like President Obama. He is simply the best.
    MUST SEE speech.

  51. August 5, 2015 at 1:04 pm

    We ALWAYS say that: “one of his best speeches”.

    My God, I would like him to be president forever. Brains, Wisdom, Authenticity, Moral Strength, Determination and Confidence combined with empathy for others,

    And, MOST OF ALL, a REFUSAL to play politics. He speaks TRUTH, unvarnished. No demagoguery. No cheap emotional appeal. But something so much deeper. He offers reason and heart at the same time.

    This magnificent man is not cold AT ALL. He is serious, but passionate. A depth of heart and soul rarely seen in american politicians.

    I could go on, and on, and on, and on…

    What an EXCEPTIONAL president America has.

    Wow. Wow. Wow.

      LOL – yes, there are now so many of the “one of his best speeches” that I’ve lost track.

    This was a POWERFUL speech by our Beloved,intelligent PBO.
    He could not have made it any clearer…even a single cell amoeba could understand this. Repubs, not so much.
    He told it like it should be told… even to Bibi.

    Had called my congress critters last week and will continue to do so this week, especially after this speech.
    God bless you President Obama. Please keep on with your fearless truth-telling. We have got your back.

    I just had to let the TOD know that I just sent my two MN senators a little love note. the short and sweet of it was: ” my president is going to be running thru the finish line. and I EXPECT my MN senators to support him all the way thru!”.

    I hope they do the right thing here. more war in ME is easy; peace and diplomacy, hard.
