Pseudo-Random Thoughts

This Iranian Diplomat Doesn't Sound very diplomatic.
Iran’s foreign minister and lead negotiator in nuclear talks is known to frequently scream and shout at Western diplomats, including Secretary of State John Kerry, a practice that has caused alarm among bodyguards stationed outside the negotiating room, according to a member of the Iranian diplomatic team who spoke to the Farsi-language press.

Iranian Foreign Minister Javad Zarif—who is scheduled to hold one-on-one talks with Kerry this evening in Vienna—”frequently shouts at Western diplomats” in such a forceful manner that bodyguards have hurriedly entered the negotiation room on occasion worried that an incident might occur, according to one Iranian diplomat involved in negotiations who spoke anonymously with the Iranian press earlier this week.
According to the article, the Iranians say (in their own press) that the yelling is part of a deliberate good cop-bad cop tactic, the kind of tactic that you use if you think you are negotiating with fools.

Or, perhaps, if you know the other side is desperate for a deal, and you enjoying mocking them.

(Should the US find a leather-lunged diplomat to yell back?  Perhaps.  But I say that because I think these "talks" ("shouts"?) had no chance of succeeding, were simply a way for Iran to ease the sanctions while they went on developing nuclear weapons.)

Obama Bundler Accused of statutory rape.
He’s a mega bundler for President Obama.  He’s been on Air Force One.  He’s shared a Christmas visit with Michelle Obama at the White House.  And now he’s being accused of sex with a minor.

Terry Bean, 66, a gay activist and major Democratic fund-raiser, was arrested Wednesday in Portland, Ore., for allegedly having sex with a 15-year-old boy.
Apparently, there is a video recording of the encounter(s).  And there may have been an attempt at blackmail.

If you haven't heard about this story, that's because most news organizations haven't covered it; a Bing search of news sites with "Terry Bean" a few minutes ago turned up just 449 hits in the last week.  And since both "Terry" and "Bean" are common names, no doubt many of those hits are false positives.

(There's a little more in this USA Today column, and if you want pictures, you can see them in this Daily Mail article.)

Ronald Reagan, RINO?  Pete Wehner makes a point that anyone who was paying attention during the Reagan presidency (or his 1976 campaign) would agree with:  Ronald Reagan was too good a politician to be a purist.

Which, by the standards of some would make Reagan a RINO, a Republican In Name Only.

Talk show host Mark Levin didn't care for this argument, and attacked Wehner.  Here's a sample from Wehner's reply:
I never said that Senator Schweiker was a “crazed leftist.” What I did say (in this COMMENTARY essay I co-authored with Henry Olsen) is that Senator Schweiker was a liberal.  If anything, we understated the case.  As this document shows, the left-wing group Americans for Democratic Action (ADA) gave Senator Schweiker an approval rating of 85% in 1974, which is the same rating the ADA gave to Senator George McGovern; and in 1975, the year before Reagan picked Schweiker to be his running mate, Senator Schweiker received an 89% rating.  Senator Schweiker cosponsored a national health insurance bill introduced by Senator Ted Kennedy; was a primary sponsor of legislation (the Humphrey-Hawkins Full Employment Act) that created a massive federal jobs program; voted against an attempt to stop federal funds from paying for abortions; supported the Equal Rights Amendment; opposed the Vietnam War; and opposed funding key defense systems.  Steven Hayward, in his wonderful book The Age of Reagan, wrote, “Schweiker was arguably as liberal as Jimmy Carter’s running mate, Sen. Walter Mondale.”

Anyone who listens to Mr. Levin knows he would excoriate any conservative today who named a liberal like Schweiker to be his vice presidential nominee, as Reagan did.  And an honest reading of some parts of Reagan’s political record — when he was governor of California he liberalized abortion laws, and when he was president he signed into law record tax increases and he championed amnesty — means that he would fail the purity test that Levin applies to conservatives today.
As I said, none of this would surprise anyone who was paying attention back then, or anyone who takes an honest look at all of Reagan's record, now.

But these historical facts are inconvenient for some purists on the right, who like to argue that conservatives will succeed through purity — which is unlikely — and that Reagan gave us an example of that strategy — which is historically inaccurate.

People believe what they want to believe, more often than not.

(Here's a brief Wikipedia biography of Schweiker.  I had forgotten that Reagan made him Health and Human Services secretary, perhaps as a reward for that 1976 support.

For the record:  I have listened to Mark Levin, but never for more than a minute or two.  Long ago, I decided that people who yell at me when I am right next to them, or right by the radio, probably aren't making rational arguments, and so when he comes on, I find myself almost immediately turning him off, or tuning into a different station.  No doubt my simple rule — pay no attention to people who are shouting at you when they don't have to — is wrong some of the time, but I think that it is right often enough so that I will continue to use it.)

Ron Fournier Is Disillusioned With President Obama:  Here's what Fournier said near the end of today's "Fox News Sunday".
FOURNIER: I think that's a big part of it, and also we have a president who -- our president thinks we can work with.  So, it kind of changes the dynamic a little bit.   But big picture, look, this is the president who -- is president, because he promised he could change the culture of Washington.  He promised that he could break gridlock and he promised to get us out of two wars.  He's 0 for 3 in the fundamental reasons that he's promised -- that -- he became president.  And I think that hurts him his legacy.  If I can go back to Iran real quickly?

WALLACE: Sure.

FOURNIER: Does it kind of fits? I have a problem, I agree with everything everybody on the panel said, I have a problem squaring a circle between a president who says I can't deal with Republicans, and a president who says I can deal in good faith with the Iranians.   I don't know how you square that circle.
Especially when you consider that Obama has negotiated successfully with the Republicans, on , for instance, the sequester, and no one in the West has had any success negotiating with the Iranians.  In fact, the Iranians bragged after the last round that they never intended to make an agreement, they were just using the negotiations to gain time, and fend off sanctions.

As far as I can tell — without knowing anything about the secret part of the negotiations — the current round of negotiations is following the same pattern; the Iranians are getting concrete advantages like the easing of sanctions, while giving us only vague promises to keep negotiating, and possibly to slow down, slightly their mad rush to acquire atomic weapons.

(It's an obvious point, but deserves repeating:  There are other nations in the region, notably Saudi Arabia, that will start their own nuclear weapons programs (if they have not already) if the Iranians appear to be close to getting the bomb.)

In The Short Term, President Obama Has Killed any chance of comprehensive immigration reform.
At the end of 2012 opponents of “comprehensive immigration reform” — i.e. Amnesty and Guestworkers First, Border Security Later — seemed to be in deep trouble.  Republican moderates and business donors, citing the Romney debacle, were saying the party had to cave on the issue.  Chuck Todd predicted 80 or 90 votes in the Senate.   But look at the posture today: The Gang of 8 “comprehensive” bill has been blocked, almost certainly for the rest of the year.  When the new Congress convenes, it will vaporize.  And now Obama’s executive amnesty has pretty much destroyed the possibility of passing similar legislation in 2015 and probably 2016.  The executive amnesty itself is large, but could have been larger.  It might very well get blocked by Congress or thrown out in court — or cancelled by the next President.  Meanwhile it’s likely to trigger a backlash that could dash the hopes of building on this amnesty with other, serial amnesties, which was always the main danger.
But not, says Mickey Kaus, in the long term.

(For the record:  Chuck Todd is too much of a partisan to be trusted on vote counts.)

Here's A Different Viewpoint on the Keystone XL pipeline.
I like to think of it as Keystone XL Derrangement Syndrome: the way perfectly reasonable North American environmentalists take leave of their senses when this benighted pipeline is mentioned.  Thinking that not building the pipeline will somehow decrease oil consumption makes no sense.

And yet, I really hope they succeed in stopping it: not because I think it’ll make the slightest bit of difference to Greenhouse Gas emissions – it won’t – but because deep down, beneath the sedimentary layers of cynicism, I’m still a Venezuelan patriot, and Keystone XL is a disaster for Venezuela.
Because that Canadian oil competes directly with Venezuelan oil.

(I'm charmed by his claim that some opponents are "perfectly reasonable" environmentalists.   I suppose there may be a few such, but there can't be very many.)

Want To See Some Snow Pictures?  The Daily Mail has them.
Just when beleaguered Buffalo residents started to dig out from a historic blizzard that dumped up to 65 inches - it's snowing again in western New York.

The new lake effect storm could pile another three feet - bringing the total to eight feet in some places - on a region already struggling to cope with an unprecedented mid-November storm.   Authorities have been waging a losing battle to clear away the incredible mounds and the additional wintry blast will make it even harder for the region to return to normal life.

Ten people have died in the storm in western New York and winter weather is being blamed on at least three other deaths in New Hampshire and Michigan.  Most of the deaths were either the result of car crashes or people who had heart attacks shoveling snow.
If you scroll down to the "best rated" comments, you'll see that some readers are predicting a baby boom next August.

If Rand Paul Was Trying To Discredit Himself, he met the right man.
On Thursday morning, Senator Rand Paul, a likely 2016 presidential candidate, met with Al Sharpton to discuss “criminal-justice issues and more,” according to a National Action Network press release.  Sharpton released the following statement:
We talked about his position on dealing with some criminal justice issues that I am concerned about.  We also discussed mandatory sentencing that he and Senator Cory Booker are proposing.  We do not agree on executive action on the President, I agree and he does not.  It was a very candid and courteous conversation.  We pledged to continue to have such conversations where conservatives and progressives can have dialogue and break the log jam in American discussion.
The Republican senator met with the rabble-rousing reverend to discuss “criminal-justice reform, demilitarization of police, and the senator’s recent trip to Ferguson,” according to Senator Paul’s press secretary.  Asked how the senator felt about the meeting in light of the $4.5 million in tax liens reportedly owed by Sharpton, Paul’s press secretary responded, “This meeting is another example of Senator Paul’s willingness to work across the aisle to solve our nation’s problems.”
This meeting makes Paul look ignorant and unscrupulous.

He can't be completely unaware of Sharpton's record, can he?

(Some will wonder why Sharpton met with Paul.  It was probably just a little ploy to get more attention, and perhaps protection from prosecution on tax charges, from the Obama administration.)
