Thanksgiving gift to DU and my listeners, the Rude Pundit returns to my show this Sunday/Monday

http://www.blogtalkradio.com/lesersense/2013/12/02/rude-pundit-vs-ryan-girdusky-on-iran-accord-tea-party-and-election-2014

Join Making Sense with Steve Leser for an epic debate between the progressive Rude Pundit, aka Lee Papa, a professor at CUNY Staten Island and GOP Strategist Ryan Girdusky.

The Rude One and Ryan debate the Iran Accord, whether the Tea Party is just the latest wingnut incarnation of the John Birch Society and how the 2014 congressional elections stack up.

Afterwards we will have our trademark hall of fame and shame for those politicians and prominent individuals who made great sense, or shameful nonsense, respectively.

The show airs at 7pm Eastern time Sunday December 1 at the above link on Blogtalkradio.com and it airs Monday at 2pm Pacific time in the Los Angeles basin on KCAA 1050am.

Israeli grass roots, in contrast with Netanyahu, are willing to give accord with Iran a chance

http://news.yahoo.com/wary-war-israeli-public-gives-iran-deal-chance-160023316.html

JERUSALEM (Reuters) - Going about their business on Monday, Israelis seemed more accepting than their leader, Benjamin Netanyahu, of a nuclear deal with Iran that he rejected as a historic mistake.

On the streets of Israeli cities, people questioned about Sunday's interim accord between global powers and the Islamic Republic voiced doubts about an agreement that Netanyahu said would leave arch-foe Iran within reach of an atomic bomb.

But they also said the deal, which allows a six-month period of limits to Iran's nuclear program in exchange for up to $7 billion worth of sanctions relief, was preferable to war.

"I am leaning more to the side that it's worth the effort - the six months - to see if there's a chance there can be a diplomatic solution," said Sharon Bar-Lev, 49, from the central Israeli town of Kfar Saba, north of Tel Aviv.

The Iran accord - Thank you President Obama

I've been hearing for years from some folks how there is no difference between Democrats and Republicans.

You can bet that if either McCain or Romney had won, we would already have a Paul Bremer type person running Iran and a ton of dead Iranians and American soldiers.

Thank you President Obama for choosing a different course.

Are you for or against the senate rule change making it easier to confirm Presidential appointees?

http://www.reuters.com/article/2013/11/21/us-usa-senate-nominees-vote-idUSBRE9AK11420131121

(Reuters) - The Democratic-led Senate, in a historic rule change, stripped Republicans on Thursday of their ability to block President Barack Obama's judicial and executive branch nominees.

On a nearly party-line vote of 52-48, Democrats abruptly changed the Senate's balance of power by reducing from 60 to 51 the number of votes needed to end procedural roadblocks known as filibusters against all presidential nominees, except those for the U.S. Supreme Court.

Glenn Beck's network running a story that the Admin has concluded a secret nuke deal with Iran

http://www.theblaze.com/stories/2013/11/18/report-international-negotiations-with-iran-are-a-facade-secret-deal-allegedly-already-struck-directly-with-valerie-jarrett/

If true, I think its a good thing.

White House is denying that this is true. From the article in the above link:

But according to the Israeli outlet Haaretz, White House National Security Council spokeswoman Bernadette Meehan said that the report about the deal was “absolutely, 100 percent false.”


Of course if it is secret, Meehan may not know about it.

xPost from GD: The first head of the NY FBI's Investigative group against Al Qaeda and bin Laden

This week's show - The first head of the NY FBI's Investigative group against Al Qaeda and bin Laden

Click the below link at any time to hear the the interview with former FBI special agent Jack Cloonan. I think it is one of the more exciting interviews I have done. If you want to understand the early investigative work done on Al Qaeda and how the FBI and other federal agencies began to understand the threat they posed, this interview is for you.

There is a lot of cloak and dagger spy stuff talked about by Special Agent Cloonan in this episode.

It will also air 2pm Monday night on KCAA 1050am
