#AceNewsReport – Dec.16: Report: Obama administration didn’t more respond forcefully to Russian hacking because they thought #HillaryClinton would win, didn’t want to risk potential cyber war with Russia, sources say – NBC News http://nbcnews.to/2gGSNkG

In a clip from an interview set to air on Friday’s broadcast of NPR’s “Morning Edition,” President Barack Obama expressed his intent to take action against Russia for its alleged effort to impact the “integrity” of last month’s election.

Obama said that action may be “explicit and publicised” and some of it may not be, adding Russian President Vladimir Putin was aware of Obama’s sentiment on the issue.

“I think there is no doubt that when any foreign government tries to impact the integrity of our elections that we need to take action,” Obama said. “And we will — at a time and place of our own choosing. Some of it may be explicit and publicized.

Some of it may not be. But Mr. Putin is aware of my feelings about this because I spoke to him directly about it.”

Iran says it has moved 11 tons of heavy water to Oman
// The Times of Israel
The head of Iran’s nuclear program, Ali Akbar Salehi, was quoted by official media Tuesday as saying that the heavy water, which is used to cool reactors that produce plutonium, was transferred to the Arab country. Oman often serves as a mediator between Iran and the West.

On Sunday, Behrouz Kamalvandi, spokesman for the Atomic Energy Organization of Iran, said that the heavy water was being transferred to Oman for sale, as several foreign firms and countries

A recent report from the UN’s International Atomic Energy Agency said that Iran exceeded its heavy water limit by 100 kilograms (220 pounds) over the 130 metric tons allowed under last year’s nuclear agreement, a small but significant violation, drawing criticicism from the head of the UN’s atomic watchdog, the International Atomic Energy Agency, for Tehran’s second breach this year of the 2015 nuclear deal with major powers.

“It is important that such situations should be avoided in the future in order to maintain international confidence in the implementation” of the deal, Yukiya Amano, director general of the International Atomic Energy Agency, said last week in Vienna.

Heavy water, a modified form of normal water, is used in certain types of nuclear reactors.

The 2015 nuclear deal, known officially as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action, states that Iran’s “needs” are estimated to be around 130 metric tons of heavy water.

The 2015 nuclear accord went into effect in January to cap Tehran’s nuclear activities in exchange for the lifting of economic sanctions.

US president-elect Donald Trump has said his “number-one priority is to dismantle the disastrous deal with Iran,” and that “we will enforce it like you’ve never seen a contract enforced before, folks, believe me,” leading to much speculation on the future of the nuclear deal.

WASHINGTON: ‘ GOP want talks direct with Obama over Budget ‘

#AceNewsReport – Sept.22: Republicans want President Obama as a negotiating partner when it comes to budget talks, something Democrats are determined to avoid.

With a little more than a week to prevent a government shutdown, the GOP thinks the talks should be between them and Obama since they now have control of the House and Senate.

WASHINGTON McConnell: ‘ Obama negotiating massive #TP Trade Agreement not to target Tobacco growers – setting precedent’

#AceNewsReport – WASHINGTON:July.31: Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) is warning U.S. officials negotiating a massive trans-Pacific trade agreement for President Obama not to target tobacco growers in a final deal.

In a letter to Obama’s top trade representative, McConnell said singling out the tobacco industry would set a dangerous precedent for future trade deals.

The missive from McConnell suggests that congressional approval for the Trans-Pacific Partnership, a trade deal with 11 other countries that is the central goal of Obama’s trade policy, could be jeopardized by the tobacco language.

WASHINGTON: ‘ ​ Skiing and Politicking on the Taxpayer Dime ‘

#AceNewsReport – WASHINGTON:June.16:When Daniel Craig returns as Agent 007 James Bond this fall, he will be appearing in one of the most expensive spy films ever made. SPECTRE, like many Bond films before it, includes a high-speed ski chase.

Fortunately, the American taxpayer wasn’t forced to pony up for the elaborate production’s ski escapade costs. (I’m sure the producers of any movie would happily have accepted the financial support.) Unfortunately, however, the taxpayers were forced to pay, and pay through the nose, for Michelle Obama’s ski weekend escapade in pricey, trendy Aspen, Colorado, this past February.

This is what we learned in response to a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request we made to the U.S. Air Force on February 18, 2015. We asked for:

  • Any and all records concerning mission taskings relevant to First Lady Michelle Obama’s trip to Aspen, Colorado.

  • Any and all records concerning transportation costs.

  • Any and all passenger manifests for the trip.

The records we obtained from the U.S. Air Force tell us that the First Lady’s trip cost us all a pretty penny.

According to the newly released records, the transportation costs for the four-day trip to Aspen were based on a flight cost of $7,712 an hour for the First Lady, her daughters, and support personnel in the Gulfstream aircraft (as opposed to the $700 that the average American can spend for a roundtrip flight all the way to Europe and back). Not included were the attendant costs for U.S. Secret Service personnel, accommodations, meals, rental cars, lift tickets for skiing at Buttermilk, and related expenses. The $57,068.80 tab Mrs. Obama and her daughters ran up in travel expenses alone for their weekend trip is more than 14 times what the average American of four spends for an entire week-long vacation.

It has been apparent to us for some time now that the Obamas abuse taxpayer money with unnecessarily luxurious vacations and travel. How many times did the Obama family travel to Aspen prior to the presidency? Misusing the perks of presidency to travel to luxury hot-spots is an abuse that must end. If Congress is looking to save tax dollars, they might consider trimming the platinum travel budgets of this and future presidents.

Apparently, the ski trip was intended to be low-key, and it may have stayed under the radar had it not been for the Obama’s motorcade having been forced to stop for a two-car collision ahead of them, which closed the road for 40 minutes. Though the Obamas had been allowed to “sneak through while they waited on tow trucks,” according to Aspen Police Chief Brian Olsen, the presence of the First Lady was noticed. The Obama family reportedly stayed at the home of Jim and Paula Crown, a Chicago couple who have been major campaign contributors to President Obama throughout his political career.

Barack and Michelle Obama and other members of their family have traveled more during his presidency than any other first couple, including extensive and costly trips to Spain, Africa, South America, and China, accompanied by staff and often by friends.

Including the Aspen trip, government records indicate that the beyond-first-class travel of the Obamas and Vice President Joe Biden have cost the American people well over $56 million.

The Obamas have trained Vice President Biden well on how to use tax dollars for personal and political use. Air Force records we received in response to a September 19, 2014, FOIA show that Biden’s September 3, 2014, trip to Portsmouth Naval Shipyard in New Hampshire cost taxpayers $17,025 in transportation expenses. Biden was in New Hampshire to campaign for Democratic Senate and House candidates.

We had asked for:

1) Any and all records concerning mission taskings of Vice President Biden’s September 3, 2014 trip to New Hampshire;

2) Any and all records concerning transportation costs for Vice President Biden’s September 3, 2014 trip to New Hampshire; and

3) Any and all passenger manifests (DD-2131) for Vice President Biden’s September 3, 2014 trip to New Hampshire.

Biden’s cost included three hours of flight time at $5,675 an hour, which does not include Secret Service expenses or costs incurred by local law enforcement in New Hampshire. While the Obama administration claimed Biden was in New Hampshire to celebrate shipyard workers, it’s clear that he was in campaign mode. London’s Daily Mail reported that Sen. Jeanne Shaheen and Rep. Carol Shea-Porter of New Hampshire, along with Reps. Chellie Pingree and Mike Michaud of Maine, all joined Biden at the shipyard.

And tax dollars are sacrificed on the altar of Mr. Biden’s political ambition.

CNN Politics reported, “The vice president, who’s mulling a 2016 presidential bid, made his remarks at the Portsmouth Naval Yard in a speech about the economy. He was accompanied on stage by U.S. Sen. Jeanne Shaheen, a New Hampshire Democrat who’s running for re-election this year.” The dirty little not-so-secret is that candidates, campaigns, and political parties pay nearly nothing for the political use of Air Force One (or Air Force Two).

The Obama family and Biden mistake the Air Force for Uber. The scam of presidents and vice presidents using tax dollars to subsidize candidates running for office must end. Did Shaheen reimburse taxpayers for a reasonable portion of the costs Biden to campaign for her? Our military has been decimated and is under strain. Biden might want to consider this when he next considers using Air Force Two for a trip to New Hampshire or Iowa as he runs for the presidency.

Your JW has been on top of these taxpayer-funded junkets for some time now. See the previous year together with all reports here:

VIDEO: REDEMPTION OF AMERICA ???

#AceNewsRoom – USA:Feb.19: This is an excellent post from my friend Gary and well worth a read at the link below.

Recent events in Ferguson Missouri that snuffed out the life of Mike Brown is haunting and it reminds me of the 1960’s and 70’s. From 1965 to 1971, I was a staff organizer for theNational Welfare Rights Organization (NWRO), one of the major civil rights organizations. I recall very vividly the rebellions that occurred in Harlem NY, Newark NJ, Detroit, Watts CA, and other urban centers, all of which were precipitated by a white police officer shooting a black youth.
