ISIS analysis, based on IAEA report, finds Iran has significantly stepped up output of low-enriched uranium in the last five years; Iran reportedly downplays IAEA report.
Iran has significantly stepped up its output of low-enriched uranium and total production in the last five years would be enough for at least five nuclear weapons if refined much further, a U.S. security institute said.
The Institute for Science and International Security (ISIS), a think-tank which tracks Iran’s nuclear programme closely, based the analysis on data in the latest report by the UN International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) which was issued on Friday.
Progress in Iran’s nuclear activities is closely watched by the West and Israel as it could determine how long it could take Tehran to build atomic bombs, if it decided to do so. Iran denies any plan to and says its aims are entirely peaceful.
During talks in Baghdad this week, six world powers failed to convince Iran to scale back its uranium enrichment program.
They will meet again in Moscow next month to try to defuse a decade-old standoff that has raised fears of a new war in the Middle East that coulddisrupt oil supplies.

Most Americans judge a President based on his promises and his results. They measure the success of the nation in part by the question Ronald Reagan asked voters in 1980. Reagan simply said, “Are you better off today than you were four years ago?”
For Barack Obama, this question is deadly. Obama promised big results, but he has failed to deliver. For example, look at these four promises and his results.
Obama’s 825 billion dollar stimulus failed to keep unemployment below 8 percent as Obama promised. Since President Obama’s stimulus passed, America has lost 1.1 million jobs. If you count people who have become discouraged and are no longer seeking jobs, some economists believe that real unemployment rate is above twenty percent.
Obama called his health care package one of his major accomplishments. He told CBS’ Steve Kroft he was “putting in place a system in which we’re going to start lowering health care costs.” Yet it has failed to make health insurance more affordable. According to the fact watchdog website FactCheck.org, ObamaCare is actually making health care “less affordable.” Workers paid an average of $132 more for family coverage just this year.
Obama predicted his investments in green energy would create 5 million jobs, but the Wall Street Journal reports: “The green jobs subsidy story gets more embarrassing by the day. Three years ago President Obama promised that by the end of the decade, America would have five million green jobs, but so far, some $90 billion in government spending has delivered very few.”
Does Obama really love our military? If so, how come he is sending Joe Biden out while he stays hunkered down? That’s right, our president has no public appearance this Memorial Day Holiday!
Vice President Biden will deliver remarks to families of fallen military service personnel in Arlington, Va.
The left just does not like the Tea Party because the Tea Party is so grating to them!
President Obama’s former green czar, Van Jones, described the Tea Party as a group of “so-called patriots” who are trying to destroy America last weekend at a campaign rally on behalf of the Democratic gubernatorial candidate in the Wisconsin recall election.
“At this point in this struggle, it’s the so-called patriots who are the ones who are smashing down every American institution,” Jones said last weekend in Milwaukee. “It’s the so-called patriots, the ones who come out here with their Tea Party and the flags and call themselves patriots — they’re the ones that are smashing down our unions, smashing down public education, smashing down every American institution that we built, and our parents built, and our grandparents built to make this country great.”
The Harley will soon be transported to the Harley-Davidson Museum in Milwaukee.
Harley-Davidson motorcycle swept away by Japan tsunami to be preserved in museum
A Japanese man’s Harley-Davidson motorcycle that washed up on the shores of western Canada more than a year after it was swept away by the devastating tsunami will be preserved in a Harley museum in the U.S.
The 2004 FXSTB Softail Night Train motorcycle will be permanently housed in the Harley-Davidson Museum in Milwaukee, Wis., as a memorial to the victims of the March 2011 earthquake and tsunami, which swamped several coastal towns in northeastern Japan and left more than 15,000 people dead.
“It is truly amazing that my Harley-Davidson motorcycle was recovered in Canada after drifting for more than a year,” said the bike’s owner, Ikuo Yokoyama, in a press release issued Friday by Deeley Harley-Davidson, the Canadian distributor of Harleys. “I would like to take this opportunity to express my heartfelt appreciation to Peter Mark, the finder of my motorcycle. Due to circumstances caused by the disaster, I have been so far unable to visit him in Canada to convey my gratitude.”

Mark found the motorcycle, still bearing its Japanese license plate, while driving his ATV on an isolated beach on Graham Island on the west coast of British Columbia on April 18. The bike, along with several other items, was inside a rusted cargo van container that apparently drifted more than 4,000 miles across the Pacific Ocean.
@#$! Republicrats Say
There are three primary languages used in contemporary American politics.
The first – and sadly least spoken – is plain English, which is the language spoken by those of us that actually believe the original wording of the Constitution means exactly what it says. Unfortunately, without cultural revival coming soon this common sense form of expression could become a dead language.
The second – and sadly most spoken – is political correctness. This Orwellian double-speak introduces self-contradictory terms like “marriage equality” (when any guy that’s been married for more than six months can tell you no such thing exists) and “reproductive freedom” (which doesn’t make sense since you’re killing your reproduction anyway, so why would you want the freedom to reproduce in the first place).
This language takes commonly used words and phrases and removes all common sense from them, thus changing their long-standing and previously acknowledged meaning. For example, “tolerance” used to mean I put up with you even if I disagree with you because it’s a free country. Nowadays under political correctness, “tolerance” means you lose your freedom if you don’t validate and participate in everything I do that you don’t approve of.
The third is a technocratic dialect used only by the Republicrat ruling class, and is meant to throw grassroots patriots off the scent before they realize the Republicans they’re supporting are doing practically nothing they were sent there to do. It attempts to convince conservatives that their elected representatives believe in the same plain English they do. However, the group communicating the message means something totally different than those receiving it think/hope they do, so the mind-numbing clichés intentionally gets lost in translation. Republicrat lingo is sometimes also referred to as “gibberish,” “jargon,” or the crass description for the byproduct of a bull’s bowel movement.
Well, the islamics, CAIR, and more are pissed off as usual. This time at Kansas for passing a so called “anti-shariah” law.Won’t be too long before the Obama regime sends Holder and his DOJ out to dismantle Kansas!
Republican Kansas Governor Sam Brownback signed a bill aimed at keeping state courts and agencies from using Islamic or other non-U.S. laws when making decisions, his office said on Friday, drawing criticism from a national Muslim group.
The law has been dubbed the “Shariah bill” because critics say it targets the Islamic legal code. Shariah, or Islamic law, covers all aspects of Muslim life, including religious obligations and financial dealings. Opponents of state bans say they could nullify wills or legal contracts between Muslims.
Supporters said the law will reassure foreigners in Kansas that state laws and the U.S. Constitution would protect them. Opponents said it singled out Muslims for ridicule and was unnecessary because American laws prevail on U.S. soil.
Sherriene Jones-Sontag, a spokeswoman for the governor, said in an e-mail that the bill “makes it clear that Kansas courts will rely exclusively on the laws of our state and our nation when deciding cases and will not consider the laws of foreign jurisdictions.”
Legislators supporting the bill said there were many cases around the country where judges or state agencies cited Shariah law in deciding cases, especially involving divorce-related custody and property matters where Islamic code differs from U.S. law.
