Lithograph, above: William Henry Harrison, Martin Van Buren, Hugh Lawson White, and Daniel Webster as horses in the 1836 presidential election. Each is ridden by a jockey emblematic of the candidate's background, with "Old Tippecanoe" bearing a rugged frontiersman on his way to victory over Van Buren's ties with lame duck Andrew Jackson, followed by the Southern gentleman White and the proper New Englander Webster. Racing events were clustered into biannual, week-long race meetings, one in the spring and one in the fall.

Monday 1150P (850P Pacific Time): Reza Kahlili, A Time to Betray, and Larry Johnson, in re: Iran. Bilateral negotiations between US & Iran: a delegation of thee persons, one of them female [see press reports of its being Valerie Jarrett] representing the Obama Administration met the former foreign minister of Iran Ali Akbar Velayati in Doha, Qatar, around 1 Oct, and held lengthy discussions in which they agreed on removing US sanctions no later than March 2013 (Iranian New Year); and that Iran has the right to peaceful nuclear energy. My article releases specific information on this. These meetings were also occurring last February. Pres Obama denies any one-to-one negotiations, but the Iranian regime announced publicly that the messages from Obama had been received, including a letter. The US under Pres Obama has avoided admitting negotiations; the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, General Martin E. Dempsey, said that Iran is a rational actor. Furthermore, around half a year ago, just as PM Netanyahu was travelling to the US,16 US intell agencies suddenly reported that Iran had stopped working on the bomb. This was a coup for the White House; however, its veracity has not been borne out.
There are two types of Washington leaks: one is leaked to favor the administration, the other to derail some administration project. This seems to be the latter.
The president said in the debate that the New York Times and Reza Kahlili's information are not true. The sentiments of the Iranian populatin are anger, anxiety, and resentment against the White House. Meanwhile, the Senate passed the sanctions bill by 100 to zero.
Iran backs Syria; then Turkey, which has 250,000 soldiers and a tank battalion on its Syrian border, may go t war with Syria; and the US and NATO line up with Turkey while Russia, China and Iran side with Syria – this is a recipe for trouble and has the potential to engulf us in a global war.
