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.

The Deal to Iran’s Nuclear Program is History Repeating Itself

By Jim Emerson, staff writer

“Those who do not learn from history are doomed to repeat it” – George Santayana

30 September 1938 after signing of the Munich Agreement British Prime Minister Neville Chamberlain declared “Peace for Our Time.” Despite the jubilation, Adolf Hitler had no intention of honoring the agreement and invaded Poland.

The Iran nuclear deal is similar to the 1994 Agreed Framework Bill Clinton signed with the North Koreans. During his press conference he said “This is a good deal for the United States.” “North Korea will freeze and then dismantle its nuclear program. South Korea and our other allies will be better protected. The entire world will be safer as we slow the spread of nuclear weapons.” Now they have nukes.

Eleven years later Obama said in an address “Iran is permanently prohibited from pursuing a nuclear weapon under the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty, which provided the basis for the international community’s efforts to apply pressure on Iran.” History will be repeating itself because there is no such provision in the Iran Deal. Obama and his administration have no sense of History.   Obama 2

Obama and Iran’s President Hassan Rouhani hailed the nuclear agreement struck with US-led world powers. Obama celebrates because he believes this will be a legacy of his time as sovereign, until Major Garrett asked a legitimate question at a celebratory news conference. Iran is celebrating because they know it’s a joke. The deal legitimizes Iran’s nuclear program.  Iran will keep its core nuclear facilities, continue research to develop nuclear weapons, develop missiles, and some sanctions have been lifted. Inspections what inspections? Iran can cheat all they want without the fear of the United Nations’ nuclear watchdog agency timely inspections of nuclear facilities.

The Constitution

Article II. “He (The President) shall have power, by and with the advice and consent of the Senate, to make treaties, provided two thirds of the Senators present concur”. The President can only can negotiate a treaty but cannot obligate the United States to comply with the treaty unless two-thirds of the Senate approves.

The Republican led congress threw that protection away by passing the Corker Bill. This bill is considered ratified unless two-thirds or more say “no!” The Establishment Republicans just guaranteed that the Iran nuclear treaty will be ratified, no matter

how bad it is. The Congress surrendered another one of its constitutional obligations to stop an out-of-control community organizer. How soon they forget that Americans gave them the majority in congress to stop this Alinskyite. Someone from K Street must have a real sweet business deal with Iran, money well spent.  

 

A Record of Failure

Since assuming office every foreign policy under this administration has failed, why will a useless agreement with an Islamic Republic be any different? Never mind that Americans are being held prisoner in Iran. After all, Iran supports terrorists who killed Americans in Iraq and Afghanistan. Hanoi John Kerry boasted “this agreement addresses Iran’s potential pathways to fissile material for a bomb exactly as we said it would – with appropriate limitations and transparency in order to assure the world of the peaceful nature of Iran’s nuclear program.” (1) It doesn’t take a genius to figure out that Iran will have a nuclear arsenal before Obama leaves office.

Only 60 Showed up, Another Obama Flop

By Jim Emerson, staff writer

Obama’s plan to raise and train an army of Syrian rebels to take on ISIS has become yet another strategic foreign policy embarrassment, this one costing American taxpayers $500 million. Only 50 Syrian fighters volunteered to receive training frSYRIAN REBELSom the US Army, far short of an effective force to fight ISIS. The initial plan was to train 5,400 troops.  Most likely the Syrian rebels are well aware of Obama’s previous actions in the Middle East, but since Iran has sided with the Assad regime, who is going to protect them and their families once the Iranians get the bomb?

Secretary of Defense Ash Carter pointed out that the figure was small in the early stages of the program with just 60 soldiers making it through the vetting process. After all, the Regime doesn’t want to repeat the mistake of training Syrian Rebels to overthrow Al-Assad only to wind up creating ISIS! Besides, Obama feels more comfortable training the Muslim Brotherhood supported OBAMA CHRISTIAN MUSLIMrebels. He knows them to be friends already, given his longtime association with that particular terrorist organization.

Obama’s plan sounds good on paper but he doesn’t have the gravitas to back it up on the world stage. His only caveat is that no American troops will be on the ground. Americans may be there but CNN is too busy looking for a missing Malaysian Airliner to notice. The rebels saw Obama cut and run from Iraq; the U.S. military didn’t retreat, Obama did. Having seen what happened in the Ukraine, Syrian rebels must be worried that in a fierce fight for their lives, Obama will just not provide air support and abandon them, creating his own personal “Bay of Pigs” moment.

In a rare moment of political clarity (and honesty), Senate Armed Services Committee Chairman Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) said Obama’s strategy to defeat ISIS demonstrates “a disturbing degree of self-delusion.” He went on to say: “It’s right, but ultimately irrelevant, to point out, as the President did, that we have conducted thousands of airstrikes, taken out many ISIL fighters and much equipment and pushed it out of some territory.” McCain continued, stating “none of the so-called progress that the President cited suggests that we are on a path to success.”   McCain

The Islamic State continues to gain ground in Iraq and Syria. They are radicalizing people across the globe, inspiring lone wolf attacks. Despite all of the hot air coming from the White House the Arizona Senator said it best: “Our means and our current level of effort are not aligned with our ends. That suggests we are not winning, and when you’re not winning, you are losing.”

Claiming “There Is Simply No Strategic Approach,” Obama Blocks Military Aid To the Kurds.

By Jim Emerson, staff writer

An unnamed senior Gulf official told The Telegraph “There is simply no strategic approach,” that western powers have “a lack of coordination in selecting targets, and there is no overall plan for defeating ISIL.” (1) America’s Middle East allies are getting frustrated that Western leaders, Obama and David Cameron, aren’t showing leadership in the fight against ISIL.

Saudi Arabia, Jordan and the Gulf states are upset that they are being blocked by the US–aka State Department–from attacking legitimate military targets. The coalition members believe that team Obama does not have clear purpose for conducting a war against ISIS. The Arab countries are preparing to fight for their lives while Obama deals with his perceived dangers to world peace: American Conservatives and Israel.

While the Middle East allies are losing patience with the West for its lack of resolve, ISIS is gaining territory using captured American made equipment abandoned by the Iraqi Army. The Gulf States release the fact that they no longer have time to wait for Obama to make up his mind. They must therefore take matters into their own hands. It will be detrimental to the West when Arab counties later deny the use of forward operating bases, air and shipping routes into Iraq. America will have to deal with the fallout after Obama is out of office and wealthy oil countries are feeling betrayed after having donated millions to Obama’s library and the Clinton’s slush fund.

The only people taking the fight to the Islamic State Jihadists on a consistent basis are the Kurds. They could use modern and heavy weapons to maintain the fight. Arab countries are telling Obama the Kurds need direct support from them and from the West. The Kurds can use modern weapons, radios, vehicles to offset the equipment being used by ISIS. But the Obama Regime is more interested in helping an Army that does not have an interest in freeing their own non-Shite countrymen. Obama hasn’t the political will OR personal interest to help in a fight to protect Sunnis, Christians or Kurds.

Kurdish fighters have managed to push back ISIS and reclaim lost territory, not caring what Obama or Cameron thought about their efforts. Despite having inferior weapons to wage a war, the Kurds have the willpower and courage to fight for their homes. Kurdistan is the only region in the country that took in retreating Yazidis, Christians and protected them. The Kurds have plans to create their own country in the areas they took from ISIS without help from the coalition. The Kurds have earned the right to carve out their own country, for they are the only ones fighting for it. (2)

But that doesn’t please the White House mullah. Insisting a unified Iraq is a stronger Iraq, Obama’s strategy would have the nation flying an ISIS flag. Walmart could bake a cake to celebrate the event. Obama’s State Department is only interested in arming Iraqi Shiites in hopes they could get a deal from the Iranians in the nuclear deal talks. After all, the legacies of Barack Obama and John Kerry are more important than a few thousand Kurdish, Yazidi, Christian and Muslim lives.

While The Morons Are In Charge, ISIS Commits More Crimes against Humanity

By Jim Emerson, staff writer

The American public is told to ignore the “soldiers” of the Muslim group ISIS. We are not permitted to refer to them as terrorists even though they commit countless, unspeakable acts against  Christian and Yazidi women in captured areas of Iraq. These sub humans claim to stay true to the literal interpretation of Islam and are unmoved by public opinion.

The practice of giving away women captured in war and using them as sex slaves or prizes is called “sibya” and is endorsed by Mosques. The girls are awarded as prizes in a Koran Trivia contest in honor of the beginning of the holy month of Ramadan. Though the treatment of these and ALL Women by ISIS fighters is horrific, it is nevertheless barely noticed by Human Rights groups or feminists. They are crimes committed against humanity and we don’t hear squat from the beltway. No hypocrisy on the left, is there! (1)

Memorizing the Koran is considered pious and worthy and such competitions are held around the world during the observance of Ramadan. Ramadan is believed to be the time during Mohammed received the Holy book. Since the caliphate has a functional Islamic educational system, the fighters probably have a better literacy rate then American public education system. Mohammed himself was of course illiterate. Any “Holy” book he wound up with would have had to be read to him.

Feeling emboldened in all situations and not giving a damn about public opinion sounds a lot like current American politicians and judges. Members of ISIS are posting videos of the beheading of accused spies and apostates. It is a display of the savagery of this grotesque group; savagery in accordance with Islamic law. Most uneducated American activists believe they are watching American police or training film for the interrogation of military prisoners.

A video was released this week in which the victims of Islam stated they were being treated well, before being killed with extreme cruelty by Islamic thugs who sent a shocking message to the world that they are not to be messed with. (2) According to that “literal interpretation” of Islam excuse by ISIS, these barbaric executions are in accordance with Mohammed’s Koran. Maybe if he had been able to read it, Mohammed would have discovered just how perverse his buddy Allah really was.

And what are the hypocrites of the American left concerned about? Why this week it’s phony outrage over the Confederate Flag, that has a far less destructive role in American History and culture than Louis Farrakhan or Barack Obama. They feign a farcical outrage over a flag while ignoring the real crimes committed by their fellow Muslims.

Charleston was a tragedy and was properly dealt with by faith based, civil Americans. The Department of Homeland Security and the White House believe that a domestic terror threat from right-wing, sovereign citizen extremists is more dangerous than the actions of Islamic terrorists. We are living in the time depicted in Cyril M. Kornbluth’s novella “The Marching Morons.”
