HISTORIC PHONE CALL TO IRAN

First, two noteworthy events to pay attention to today:

Netanyahu, Obama to meet in Washington on Sept 30

AND

A bill that would allow non-physicians to perform abortions in the first trimester of pregnancy is awaiting signature by Gov. Jerry Brown of California by Sep. 30.

HISTORIC PHONE CALL TO IRAN

On Friday, 9/27, Obama Announces Something That Hasn’t Happened Since 1979, President Obama called the Iranian president and spoke to Rouhani. Obama now thinks 'Comprehensive' Solution Possible.

Please note in this official White House photo of the phone call Obama made to Iran, that, unlike the phone call Obama made to Benjamin Netanyahu June 2009, Obama does NOT have his feet on the desk.



Rouhani claims that on Thursday, officials from President Obama contacted him in order to present him with a gift: a 2,700-year-old, "7th century BC silver Persian drinking cup in the shape of a winged Griffin, a legendary creature with the head of an eagle and body of a lion," reportedly worth a million dollars. (Click on link to see picture.)

While this drinking cup is not from the Temple in Jerusalem, it is interesting to note that it is a drinking cup used to toast the gods.

Drinking cup aside, former U.N. ambassador John Bolton says that the Iranian president is just "playing Obama to buy more time to build a bomb."

Charles Krauthammer, like Bolton, believes Obama is being used and that, "Obama will ‘give a lot away’ and Iran will go nuclear ‘in a very short order.'"

On the VERY NEXT DAY, WITHIN 24 HOURS of Obama speaking to Rouhani, yet ANOTHER person publicly accused Obama of lying, this time about the bin Laden raid, claiming, "not ONE word of official account of raid that killed Bin Laden is true."

It is worth noting that of all the things to accuse Obama of lying about, especially since Obamacare is supposed to be opening for enrollment tomorrow and many have said that Obamacare is nothing but lies, the journalist who accused the Obama administration of lying claims it was the bin Laden raid, supposedly Obama's prettiest foreign policy feather in his cap, that is nothing "but one big lie." The bin Laden raid was over a year ago, so this accusation could have been made at any time but it is coming at the SAME TIME as Obama is reaching for another "historic" foreign policy feat -- talking to Israel's biggest enemy, Iran, and trying to showcase it as a good thing.

So let's flashback to February of this year.

Which movie won Best Picture? ARGO.

Who read the announcement? Michelle Obama.

What was unusual about that? A First Lady had never read the announcement before.

What was the movie about? How the Iranians stormed the U.S. embassy in Tehran and held Americans hostage for 444 days, and left then President Jimmy Carter humiliated as he was unable to secure their release. The movie, itself, is how the Canadians helped several of the Americans escape.

Interesting to note that the movie poster for Argo features a prominent "red line" across Ben Affleck's face. Argo was released October 12, 2012.



And interesting to note that the first time we heard the term "red line" was not from Obama on Syria, it was from Benjamin Netanyahu at the U.N. General Assembly last year, and it was in connection with Iran, or Argo. Netanyahu drew a red line on a picture of a bomb on SEPTEMBER 27, 2012. ONE YEAR LATER, ON SEPTEMBER 27, 2013, OBAMA CALLED IRAN'S PRESIDENT IN AN HISTORIC PHONE CALL.
