Insanity in a Side Deal to Barack’s Iranian Nuclear Agreement

By Jim Emerson, staff writer

The Associated Press broke the news of a secret side deal which exists in the universally criticized nuclear agreement between Barack Hussein Obama and the terror supporting/performing nation of Iran. According to the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA), the deal will allow Iran to use its own inspectors to investigate one of the country’s most controversial nuclear sites. The IAEA normally inspects such sites, but they are denied access to the Parching nuclear site by the Iranian regime.

Even more insane, the agreement was signed by the Obama administration and is being pushed hard in congress as an important means of stopping Iran from developing nuclear weapons! The last time a Democrat was so trusting of Iran, the American embassy was invaded and its staff held for 444 days.

Apparently Barack and John “I want a Nobel Peace Prize” Kerry expect Americans to blindly trust the Iranians to be honest regarding inspections. The must believe ALL Americans are that stupid, never mind the lemmings in DC too busy trolling Ashley   Madison to know what is going on as required in their job   OBAMA AND KERRYdescriptions.

More Insanity

The Obama Administration insists the deal with Iran is a good one and claims the side agreement is something it is comfortable with.  National Security Council spokesman Ned Price told the press:

“We are confident in the Agency’s technical plans for investigating the possible military dimensions of Iran’s former program, issues that in some cases date back more than a decade.” “Just as importantly, the IAEA is comfortable with arrangements, which are unique to the Agency’s investigation of Iran’s historical activities. When it comes to monitoring Iran’s behavior going forward, the IAEA has separately developed the most robust inspection regime ever peacefully negotiated to ensure Iran’s current program remains exclusively peaceful…”

The Obama Regime expects this sort of “conflict resolution” will be sufficient to make the American people trust a herd of certified sub-humans who amuse themselves by chanting “Death to America” as part of Islamic canon. Of course the Regime won’t go into detail lest those paying attention begin laughing like Hell.

When asked about the Iran nuclear deal Ted Cruz quipped “If there’s one principle that history has taught us, it is that if

somebody tells you they want to kill you, believe them.” The inside the beltway crown are apparently pleased to ignore this sound advice. 

Moon bat Crazy

The IAEA rejected as a “misrepresentation” suggestions that Iran will inspect Parchin military and report back to the U.N. without Agency participation. According to Director General of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) Yukiva Amano, sane people are not that stupid. This would be a deal breaker. Iran will do whatever serves its own interest, the UN and the Western world be damned.

But what are you going to do when Iran says no or Russia and China side with Iran in a Security Council vote? The IAEA didn’t exactly do a bang up job stopping the North Korean nuclear program. How can the sane world trust you now?

Maybe the IAEA can join John Kerry on the stage in Oslo next year as consolation prize winners.

Hillary had “TOP SECRET//SI//TK//NOFORN” on the Clintonemail.com Server

By Jim Emerson, staff writer

TOP SECRET//SI//TK//NOFORN is the header used on classified documents that contain extremely sensitive material and must be handled with extreme care. It cannot be downgraded by anyone that is not the originator, nor can it be shared or stored on unclassified email servers, thumb drives or cell phones. I’ll break it down for people who may not know what this header means.

TOP SECRET – Is the highest official classification used on government documents to indicate that its TOP SECRETrelease could cause exceptionally grave damage to national security or foreign relations.

SI – Refers to SPECIAL INTELLIGENCE. This caveat indicates that the information was gathered through electronic means.

TK – TALENT KEYHOLE indicates that the information was gathered from satellite based intercepts and mapping locations of the target.

NOFORN – Not to be shared with foreign Governments. There are other caveats for that.

Any documents marked with TOP SECRET//SI//TK//NOFORN will, if released, cause grave damage to future intelligence operations, intelligence sources and the American warfighters in harm’s way. This information in the wrong hands will damage future intelligence gathering and endanger the lives of intelligence operators and informants.    Hillary 1

Samples of the documents provided by Ms. Clinton’s from personal server downloaded to a thumb drive were of that nature. Just the information on the thumb drive alone warrants an investigation for violation of the Federal Records Act and the Espionage Act. The discovery of classified information on Clintonemail.com server was, after an inspection conducted by the Intelligence Community’s Inspector General, Charles McCullough, reported to Congress.

It was also reported that Clinton had several emails which were either mislabeled or improperly (illegally) sanitized and sent as unclassified. However, they contained information that should have remained “TOP SECRET//SI//TK//NOFORN.” Even if the emails had the caveats removed and if the message contained roundabout references to sensitive material it is still a violation of federal laws.    Hillary 2

Having such information on an unclassified device is serious business. People found to have willfully mishandled highly classified information will face severe punishment, including termination of employment, hefty fines, even imprisonment. Everyone cleared to receive such information has signed Non-Disclosure Agreements (NDAs) and received proper training on how to handle these messages. They are also made aware of the consequences for misuse. No exceptions. Even Hillary signed a NDA. Any devices that contain material marked TOP SECRET//SI automatically become government property.

Failure to enforce the law

The citizens of America cannot trust Barack Obama’s Department of Justice

The FBI and Department of Justice willfully ignored Hillary    Bill and HillaryClinton’s utilization of non-government servers and accounts to perform her duties as Secretary of State. Not once were AG Eric Holder or his DOJ underlings concerned that Hillary may be receiving, storing or making use of classified information.

Under the orders of Barack Obama the Fed quickly acted to investigate and prosecute General Petraeus for so-called confidential leaks. Yet Hillary had classified and top secret information and digital satellite images on a private home server. Obama’s Consiglieres had no problem threatening news reporters and prosecuting whistleblowers under the Espionage Act. The New York Times reported that this administration prosecuted more reporters and whistleblowers for “espionage” than all prior administrations put together.

Now for a dose of reality

The information forwarded by PFC Manning to WikiLeaks was Secret, the highest classification found on the systems to which he had access. Gen David Petraeus was disgraced for hiding confidential material in his home.  Well connected people never

get convicted or serve jail time. Sandy Berger got probation and was fined $50,000 for stealing Top Secret information documents. Neither Secretary of State Hillary Clinton nor her staff were authorized to downgrade or disseminate intelligence or store it on non-secured servers.

Since the Intelligence Community, FBI and the DOJ determined that the server contained classified material she had no choice but to surrender the server. True to form for Clinton the hard drives on the email server were wiped clean. If someone does get charged it will be an underling at State and whoever cleaned the servers’ hard drives (as though that individual will ever be found.) That action is a violation of Title 18 United States Code Section 2071 (prohibiting destruction of records). (8)

Reality Check

A committee charged with “investigating” Hillary’s criminal    HILLARY 4activities will arrive at no real decision as low information voters catch up on the latest news about Kim Kardashian’s pregnancy. These political idiots haven’t a clue and really don’t care that the investigation will be performed by Obama’s DOJ. Laws were broken by a former Secretary of State and her staff. Hillary supporters will believe their leader never violated any laws, they will blame the Republicans.

She will not be held accountable and facts-be-damned talking heads will defend their anointed heroine. No matter what is found in the emails; Hillary will walk unless Obama says otherwise. She will probably not be held accountable by Democratic voters, unless Obama says otherwise. He would gladly throw the Clintons under the bus. Of course the safest bet is that the GOP will somehow be blamed, especially as the main stream media is unlikely to report any of the facts.

The Upcoming Turkish Civil War?

By Jim Emerson, staff writer

Last month the American main stream media announced that Turkey is bombing ISIS targets in Syria and Iraq. If it were not for the foreign press, Americans would have blindly believed that Turkey has joined the fight against this group of inhuman sub-human terrorists. But the truth is they are

Kurds

using ISIS as an excuse to renew their long held, bigoted campaign of hatred against the Kurds, killing them wherever they may be found. The Spiegel reported that Turkish President Erdogan will do anything to stay in power, including  derailing a peace process with Kurds in his own country.

The Kurds are the only effective force on the ground fighting against ISIS. In many skirmishes near the boarder the Turks just stood and watched as the two enemies fought each other, often holding back Turkish Kurds from joining the battles. Now that the Turkish Air Force has been attacking PKK (Kurdish) fighters,

assisted on the ground by Turkish soldiers, the peace process between the government and the Kurds has come to an end. In regions heavily populated by Kurds it is believed that civil war is inevitable.

President Erdogan, a hard-line nationalist, considers Kurds in both Turkey and Syria to be enemies of the state. As a result, Turkey conducted air strikes against ISIS and the Kurds in the so called Syrian “protective zone.” Erdogan promised that air operations will

continue as long as there is a perceived threat against Turkey. He is apparently more afraid of a Kurdish state than of ISIS. Also there is personal motivation for Erdogan as he suffered a political setback at the hands of the People’s Democratic Party, a Kurdish-Turkish alliance. He may be attacking Kurds for the purpose of splitting the opposition to his coalition government.

Obama made a deal with President Erdogan who will allow the U.S. Air Force to conduct air strikes against ISIS from Turkish bases in return for U.S. assistance in helping Turkey create an ISIS-free

buffer zone along its border. The deal also guaranteed Turkey oversight of the targets the U.S. Air Force would strike in Syria and Iraq for the purpose of cutting off any assistance to Kurdish fighters combating ISIS. Obama warned the Turkish government that the war against ISIS must be “carefully bound” in order to prevent any offensive against Kurdish fighters. But this phony bit of foreign policy tripe is for domestic consumption only. For it’s a safe bet that Turkey will do only what is in its own best interest. Yet another foreign policy “coup” for the Obama Regime.

NSA to Destroy Records Collected Under Phone Spying Program

By Jim Emerson, staff writer

The Office of the Director of National Intelligence released a statement concerning the retention of metadata collected in accordance with section 215 of the PATRIOT Act.

“On June 29, 2015, the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court    

George Bush. The Patriot Act originated on his watch
George Bush. The Patriot Act originated on his watch

approved the Government’s application to resume the Section 215 bulk telephone metadata program pursuant to the USA FREEDOM Act’s 180-day transition provision. As part of our effort to transition to the new authority, we have evaluated whether NSA should maintain access to the historical metadata after the conclusion of that 180-day period.”

Sounds good on the surface but the NSA will maintain the communication until November 29, 2015. The Intelligence Analysts will have access to that data which go back five years. Beltway translation: Democrats own this mess and want to get rid of records before Obama leaves office. However, as authorized by the USA FREEDOM Act, technical personnel will have access to the historical metadata for an additional three months. The records will be removed from NSA’s data banks sometime in January 2016.

After November 29th the NSA will require phone companies to maintain metadata and make it readily available upon request by government officials. In short, the purge of records from federal  computers will not end the program but rather move the record keeping from the government to private companies, the same companies which sell phones manufactured by Foxconn.

Notice to privacy advocates–this is not a victory. Just lipstick on a pig. It is not the reform that privacy advocates had hoped for. Not only will the NSA have unlimited access to phone records collected during the last five years, the government has transformed phone companies into a warehouse for future collection. And government agencies and departments will have full access to all records and information compiled by telephone companies throughout the nation.

The only entity that can stop this practice of federal espionage against the American people is the Foreign Intelligence

Surveillance Court. But the FISA court is run by John Roberts, Chief Justice of the Supreme Court. And whether he has been blackmailed by the Obama Regime as many believe, or is just a typical liberal masquerading as a conservative, Roberts is unlikely to deny the federal government any of the information it desires.

Americans would have never known the scope of phone data

collection by the NSA were it not for Edward Snowden, the former CIA agent who leaked information concerning the criminal activities of the Obama Regime and its spies in the NSA. A petition demanding a pardon for Snowden, containing some 160,000 signatures, has been ignored by the White House.

Time now for a quiz. The large scale collection of phone metadata started 5 years ago. Who was the President?

 

Obama Administration: Hides portion of Iran Deal from Congress and American people

By Jim Emerson, staff writer

Obama’s legacy will be his lack of transparency, as he is hiding key aspects of the Iranian Nuclear deal from Congress and the American people. Even though Obama has been trying to sell this deal to the American people on The Daily Show and in fund raisers nobody is buying it. Like another infamous Obama boondoggle, Congress will have to pass this monstrosity if the American people want to see what is in it. In a statement released by Representative Mike Pompeo (R., Kan): “The Obama administration has failed to make public separate side deals that have been struck for the ‘inspection’ of one of the most important nuclear sites—the Parchin military complex.” (1) Congress and the American people are being suckered again. In an attempt to bypass Congress Obama offered the Deal for UN approval.

Under the terms of the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action, the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) has been in separate negotiations with Iran about the inspection of the Parchin military complex. The complex is long-suspected of being used to research long-range ballistic missiles and nuclear weapons. One of the sensitive sites discussed in the original deal, now it will be off limits or moved to another remote location.

In the second side deal the Iranians won’t have to admit how far along they are along in developing a nuclear weapon. No one will be allowed to know, not even IAEA. Iran is not required to allow IAEA to inspect its facilities and may already have a working bomb. Hell they can test it in North Korea and the diplomats will be clueless! The checks and balances of Obama’s deal are nonexistent. In short “Iran won.” Of course Obama has celebrated the brilliance of the agreement as he depends on the ignorance of John Kerry (5) and Democrat voters. As a bonus, Hanoi John volunteered the U.S. to protect Iran’s nuclear ambition from Sabotage! (4) Must be the pain pills.

The Obama Administration refused to make this public until White House National Security Advisor Susan Rice took time off from watching YouTube videos and told White House Stenographers in the media that the Iran agreement is a “strong deal” and the administration has provided Congress with “all documents that have been shared with us by the IAEA.” They will not be made public, meaning they will undoubtedly be on WikiLeaks by the end of the month. Sen. Cotton told the media: “That we are only now discovering that parts of this dangerous agreement are being kept secret begs the question of what other elements may also be secret and entirely free from public scrutiny.”

To add insult to injury the head negotiator for Iran, Abbas Araghchi, is bragging “that that the Islamic Republic will continue to import and export arms freely across the globe without restriction.” (3) He insists during the negotiations that Iran will be able to “purchase and ship military hardware at any time and from any place, according to the comments made on state-controlled television.” The Obama Administration surrendered that point, saying Iran needs to import and modernize weapons for its own national security. If only the United States had a few politicians who were concerned with America’s national security! As for the State Department, it’s no secret they have no interest in protecting this nation or its citizens.

Withholding secrets that may affect the world’s security is criminal. By failing to disclose these secret side deals, the Obama administration is asking Congress and the American people to trust, but not verify. A known supporter of terrorism cannot be trusted with nuclear weapons. Now the rouge Islamic republic, with the help of incompetent fools, has started a Middle East arms race. No matter who wins, innocent people will die. This is one time our enemies (Russia and Chine) just might save us from our own stupidity.
