More Betrayal From Colin Powell, Who Backs Obama Iran Deal

Just when I thought nothing could further lower my opinion of Colin Powell, who possibly as a reward for his racial background was offered great honors by Republicans, and who repaid these honors by twice endorsing Barack Obama for president:

Former Secretary of State Colin Powell expressed support for the nuclear agreement with Iran on Sunday, calling the various planks Iranian leaders accepted “remarkable” and dismissing critics’ concerns over its implementation.

“It’s a pretty good deal,” he said on NBC’s “Meet the Press.”

That would be highly debatable even if Iran’s compliance could be reliably verified under the deal. Since there is no guarantee (or likelihood) of compliance, it is not debatable but laughable.

Apparently solidarity with Obama trumps everything — even the need to prevent our worst enemy and the world’s leading sponsor of Muslim terrorism from acquiring the means to destroy our country.

Obama’s Legacy Unfolds: Iranian Spies in USA

Obama’s legacy is just beginning to unfold, with help from a country he consistently favored — America’s most devoted enemy, Iran:

Following the arrest of two Iranian individuals charged with spying on Jewish and Israeli facilities in the California area, Rep. Peter Roskam (R., Ill.) told the Free Beacon it is likely Iran has stationed multiple regime-tied agents in the United States to conduct intelligence operations.

The accused spies’ names are Ahmadreza Mohammadi-Doostdar and Majid Ghorbani.

“This is the tip of the iceberg,” Roskam said in an interview. “This is not a surprise and this is a result of the Iran regime getting financial support from the Obama administration in the Iran deal.”

Obama’s deal, which purportedly stalled but actually greenlighted Iran’s terrifying nuclear ambitions, released as much as $150 billion to a terror-supporting regime that has in effect been at war with the USA since 1979. This staggering sum tops the Marshall Plan. This time the money won’t be used to rebuild cities, but to destroy them.

Roskam notes that Iran spending the money on hostile activities was inevitable:

“Give a malevolent regime huge amounts of cash with no restraining influence and this is what happens.”

It is believed that Iran has seeded the USA with sleeper cell agents.

These agents are believed to operate with impunity and could lay the groundwork for a large-scale terror attack on American soil. … Iran, through terrorists affiliated with Hezbollah, could easily launch strikes in America.

Readers will recall that to curry favor with Iran, Obama allowed its cat’s paw Hezbollah to smuggle cocaine into the USA. It may have smuggled more than drugs.

Admission That Iran Facilitated 9/11 Provides Perspective on Obama’s Collusion

The admission that Iran facilitated 9/11 provides context for Barack Obama’s pandering to America’s most vociferous enemy, which he took to perfidious extremes:

• He threw cold water on an uprising against the regime in 2009, in stark contrast to his avid support for the revolution in Egypt that replaced U.S. ally Hosni Mubarak with our vehement enemy the Muslim Brotherhood.

• He illegally sent the ayatollahs pallets of cash as a reward for kidnapping Americans.

• His nuclear deal with Iran was an abomination that freed up $150 billion for Iran to spend on its terror war against the West.

• He allowed the terror group Hezbollah to smuggle cocaine into the USA at the request of Iran.

• While brazenly lying to the public about it, he tried to get U.S. banks to launder money for Iran in violation of sanctions.

• His administration secretly assured European countries that there would be no consequences if they violated sanctions too.

Robert Spencer is correct when he writes, “In a sane political environment, Barack Obama would be tried for treason.” After all, Iran has been at war with the USA since 1979; this war has claimed numerous American casualties through the years.

Now Iranian officials admit that Iran facilitated 9/11 by assisting al Qaeda:

Mohammad-Javad Larijani, an international affairs assistant in the Iran’s judiciary, disclosed in Farsi-language remarks broadcast on Iran’s state-controlled television that Iranian intelligence officials secretly helped provide the al Qaeda attackers with passage and gave them refuge in the Islamic Republic, according to an English translation published by Al Arabiya. …

The remarks represent the first time senior Iranian officials have publicly admitted to aiding al Qaeda and playing a direct role in facilitating the 9/11 attacks.

The 9/11 Commission had already concluded that Iran helped bring about the deadliest terror attack in U.S. history. Now this has been confirmed, as has Obama’s status as our worst president.

Robert Mueller has had little luck finding collusion with our rival Russia. Maybe Washington should investigate a more serious matter: collusion with our sworn enemy Iran.

Obama Allowed Iran Access to Our Financial System

Obama’s borderline treasonous canoodling with America’s most vociferous enemy goes beyond illegally shipping the terrorists running Iran pallets piled with cash and allowing Hezbollah to smuggle cocaine into the USA on Iran’s request. The Moonbat Messiah also allowed Iran access to our financial system:

After striking an elusive nuclear deal with Iran, the Obama administration found itself in a quandary in early 2016: Iran had been promised access to its long-frozen overseas reserves, including $5.7 billion stuck in an Omani bank.

To spend it, Iran wanted to convert the money into U.S. dollars and then euros, but top U.S. officials had repeatedly promised Congress that Iran would never gain access to America’s financial system.

Those assurances notwithstanding, the Obama administration secretly issued a license to let Iran sidestep U.S. sanctions for the brief moment required to convert the funds through an American bank, an investigation by Senate Republicans released Wednesday showed. The plan failed when two U.S. banks refused to participate.

Thankfully bankers are more responsible, not to mention patriotic, than our 44th president.

Issuing the license was not illegal. Still, it went above and beyond what the Obama administration was required to do under the terms of the nuclear agreement, in which the U.S. and world powers gave Iran billions of dollars in sanctions relief in exchange for [smirkingly pretending to curb] its nuclear program.

Adding insult to injury, Obama lied to us, as he was so wont to do:

The license … stood in stark contrast to repeated public statements from the Obama White House, the Treasury and the State Department, all of which denied that the administration was contemplating allowing Iran access to the U.S. financial system.

If you like your doctor, you can keep your doctor. If you want terrorists out of your financial system, we will keep terrorists out of your financial system.

Regrettably, Iran found other means to convert the money Obama freed up for them. Predictably, it has been spent on terrorism and weapons programs.

To Curry Favor With Iran, Obama Allowed Hezbollah to Smuggle Cocaine Into USA

You think helping organized crime run guns into Mexico so as to generate bad press for the Second Amendment was bad? Try this: the Obama Regime allowed Hezbollah to finance its terror operations by smuggling cocaine into the USA, so as to help secure a deal that effectively put America’s most dedicated enemy on track to acquire nuclear weapons.

This is not from a conspiracy-minded right-wing site like Infowars; it is from a pillar of the liberal information establishment, Politico:

In its determination to secure a nuclear deal with Iran, the Obama administration derailed an ambitious law enforcement campaign targeting drug trafficking by the Iranian-backed terrorist group Hezbollah, even as it was funneling cocaine into the United States, according to a POLITICO investigation.

The campaign, dubbed Project Cassandra, was launched in 2008 after the Drug Enforcement Administration amassed evidence that Hezbollah had transformed itself from a Middle East-focused military and political organization into an international crime syndicate that some investigators believed was collecting $1 billion a year from drug and weapons trafficking, money laundering and other criminal activities.

Hezbollah is a cat’s paw for the terrorist regime in Iran, so unsurprisingly, that’s where the investigation led.

But as Project Cassandra reached higher into the hierarchy of the conspiracy, Obama administration officials threw an increasingly insurmountable series of roadblocks in its way, according to interviews with dozens of participants who in many cases spoke for the first time about events shrouded in secrecy, and a review of government documents and court records.

The same Injustice Department responsible for Fast & Furious hamstrung Project Cassandra at every opportunity. That’s the problem with putting the bad guys — or at the very least their fellow travelers — in charge of the government.

“This was a policy decision, it was a systematic decision,” said David Asher, who helped establish and oversee Project Cassandra as a Defense Department illicit finance analyst.

The consequence:

multi-ton loads of cocaine entering the United States, and hundreds of millions of dollars going to a U.S.-designated terrorist organization with vast reach.

As noted at Legal Insurrection, cocaine is second only to heroin in killing Americans.

Hezbollah — in league with Iran — continues to undermine U.S. interests in Iraq, Syria and throughout wide swaths of Latin America and Africa, including providing weapons and training to anti-American Shiite militias.

Running interference for Hezbollah so as to curry favor with Iran borders on treason. But what did anyone expect? His sneeringly anti-American attitudes were at the heart of Obama’s appeal to progressives.

Iranian Pardoned by Obama Involved in Stealing U.S. Military Technology for Iran

Obama is finally out of office. Yet the damage continues:

The U.S. Department of Justice says two Iranian men who worked with someone pardoned by President Barack Obama have been charged with hacking a Vermont software company and stealing software that does aerodynamic analysis and design for bullets and GPS-guided artillery shells.

Court documents say beginning in 2007 the men worked to steal software from American companies with a third person, who was pardoned by Obama last year. The documents say in 2012 they stole software from South Burlington company Arrow Tech Associates by hacking into its computer system and then sold it in Iran.

Obama pardoned Nima Golestaneh as part of a prisoner swap, reminding us once again why it is not wise to make deals with terrorists. Any American military technology that ends up in Iran is likely to be used to kill Americans.

At least Golestaneh didn’t leak 750,000 restricted documents, like another recipient of Obama’s beneficence. No doubt Golestaneh is just as grateful as Bradley Manning.

Obama Administration Approves Massive Shipment of Uranium to Iran

Obama can still inflict a great deal of damage between now and January 20 — and he appears bent on doing it:

Iran is to receive a huge shipment of natural uranium from Russia to compensate it for exporting tons of reactor coolant, diplomats say, in a move approved by the outgoing U.S. administration and other governments seeking to keep Tehran committed to a landmark nuclear pact.

If there is a Nobel Prize for sheer stupidity, trying to prevent the ayatollahs from building nuclear weapons by bribing them with uranium ought to win it.

Two senior diplomats said the transfer recently agreed by the U.S. and five other world powers that negotiated the nuclear deal with Iran foresees delivery of 116 metric tons (nearly 130 tons) of natural uranium. U.N. Security Council approval is needed but a formality, considering five of those powers are permanent Security Council members, they said.

Normally an American veto stops extreme lunacy from getting through the Security Council. But as we saw with the recent anti-Israel resolution, this is no longer the case under Obama.

Tehran has not said what it would do with the uranium…

We can probably figure that out for ourselves. The first mushroom clouds will be a good clue.

Even in the unlikely event of Iran not cheating on the agreement,

Despite present restrictions on its enrichment program, the amount of natural uranium is significant should Iran decide to keep it in storage, considering its potential uses once some limits on Tehran’s nuclear activities start to expire in less than a decade.

The uranium is enough to make more than 10 nuclear bombs. The Islamic maniacs running Iran have probably already picked out the American cities that will receive those left over after they have erased Israel.

This comes on top of ramming through the nuclear deal that is widely seen as enabling Iran’s nuclear weapons program, to which the $100+ billion in frozen assets Obama freed up for Iran can be devoted.

How’s that for a legacy?

After Obama Pays Ransom, Iran Predictably Kidnaps More Americans

After Obama illegally paid the terrorists running Iran ransom for American hostages, Mr. Magoo could have seen this coming:

Iran is seeking “many billions of dollars” in payments from the United States in exchange for the release of several U.S. hostages still being detained in Iran, according to reports by Iran’s state-controlled press that are reigniting debate over the Obama administration’s decision earlier this year to pay Iran $1.7 billion in cash.

Senior Iranian officials, including the country’s president, have been floating the possibility of further payments from the United States for months. Since the White House agreed to pay Tehran $1.7 billion in cash earlier this year as part of a deal bound up in the release of American hostages, Iran has captured several more U.S. citizens.

Future payments to Iran could reach as much as $2 billion, according to sources familiar with the matter, who said that Iran is detaining U.S. citizens in Iran’s notorious Evin prison where inmates are routinely tortured and abused. …

Iranian President Hassan Rouhani told NBC News in late September that his government is in talks with the United States to secure future payouts, a disclosure that may have played a role in the White House’s recent decision to veto legislation to block future ransom payments to Iran.

Obama directly caused this to happen. He ought to do the right thing and offer up himself in exchange for the hostages. We already know how dashing he looks in Islamic garb.

Secret $33.6 Billion Payment From Obama to Iran?

The $1.7 billion Obama illegally paid to the terrorists running Iran in exchange for hostages is only the beginning of his largesse:

Iran may have received an additional $33.6 billion in secret cash and gold payments facilitated by the Obama administration between 2014 and 2016, according to testimony provided before Congress by an expert on last summer’s nuclear agreement with Iran.

Between January 2014 and July 2015, when the Obama administration was hammering out the final details of the nuclear accord, Iran was paid $700 million every month from funds that had previously been frozen by U.S. sanctions.

A total of $11.9 billion was ultimately paid to Iran, but the details surrounding these payments remain shrouded in mystery, according to Mark Dubowitz, executive director at the Foundation for Defense of Democracies.

In total, “Iran may have received as much as $33.6 billion in cash or in gold and other precious metals,” Dubowitz disclosed.

Most or all of this money will be spent on terrorism and Iran’s nuclear weapons program.

But at least Obama got Iran to secure his legacy by agreeing to the nuclear treaty that was not ratified by the Senate as the Constitution requires. Here is how that treaty is going:

[T]he International Atomic Energy Agency said in a review issued Thursday that Iran had begun manufacturing rotor tubes for centrifuges, the spinning machines used to enrich uranium. …

The agency needs to keep a close eye on how many rotor tubes are being made and for what models of centrifuges to make sure they are being produced only in quantities and for machines allowed under the 2015 nuclear agreement that sets a schedule for when and how many advanced centrifuges can be tested. …

A senior diplomat familiar with the nuclear deal … said he could not verify reports that the six powers exempted some amounts of low-enriched uranium and facilities from the deal’s scope to allow Iran to be in compliance with the pact from the beginning of implementation in January.

No reasonable person expects terrorists to hold up their end of a treaty. But if the ayatollahs did abide by the treaty, they would still end up with nuclear weapons; it is only a question of when.

There is a point at which Pollyannaism and incompetence become indistinguishable from treason. Obama crossed it long ago.

The $400 Million Was Only a Down Payment on Obama’s $1.7 Billion Gift to Iran

Maybe a lawyer could explain how this is not treason:

The Obama administration followed up a planeload of $400 million in cash sent to Iran in January with two more such shipments in the next 19 days, totaling another $1.3 billion, according to congressional officials briefed by the U.S. State, Treasury and Justice departments.

The cash payments—made in Swiss francs, euros and other currencies—settled a decades-old dispute over a failed arms deal dating back to 1979. U.S. officials have acknowledged the payment of the first $400 million coincided with Iran’s release of American prisoners and was used as leverage to ensure they were flown out of Tehran’s Mehrabad on the morning of Jan. 17.

It is against US policy to pay ransom for hostages, for the excellent reason that it only results in more hostages. In this case it was also against US law. But American laws and policies are not binding on Obama, who conducts his own foreign policy by unilateral decree — and not on our behalf.

Iran has been at war with the United States since 1979. This may be why the attempted revolution in Iran in 2009 received zero support from Obama. In contrast, Obama backed the overthrow of the leaders of Egypt and Libya, both of whom were working with the USA against Islamic terrorism. Obama sees it as his role to reduce the stature of the racist and neocolonialist United States; he is accomplishing this by enabling our most committed enemy.

The $1.7 billion of our money Obama showered down upon the ayatollahs is in addition to the $100 billion in freed assets they received as part of the treaty he rammed through (without constitutionally mandated Senate ratification) that will facilitate Iran’s acquisition of nuclear weapons. Much if not all of the money will go toward financing Iran’s terror war against the USA.

Many Americans will die as an eventual consequence of Obama’s actions.

Experts Confirm the Obvious: Paying Ransom Like Obama Did to Iran Results in More Hostages

A little follow-up on the story of the Obama Administration illegally paying a $400,000,000 ransom to the terrorist regime in Iran in exchange for four hostages:

Paying ransoms to terrorist kidnappers may encourage more abductions and worsen the situation for others, according to new research from UT Dallas.

Countries that negotiated with terrorists to release hostages faced up to 87 percent more kidnappings than those that did not pay ransoms, according to the research, which was recently published in the European Journal of Political Economy.

“Every time you get one person back, and you did it by giving in, you’re going to have approximately another one taken. You’re essentially trading one for one,” said Dr. Todd Sandler, senior author of the study.

Plus you are out a lot of money — or rather, taxpayers are.

“Despite the human tragedy, you do tremendous harm by giving in,” [Dr. Sandler] said. “You give them the resources they need with these ransoms and you encourage them to take more people.”

Looks Like Obama Paid Ransom to Iran

If anything could be almost as outlandishly irresponsible as helping the terrorist regime in Iran to acquire nuclear weapons, it could only be this:

The Obama administration secretly organized an airlift of $400 million worth of cash to Iran that coincided with the January release of four Americans detained in Tehran, according to U.S. and European officials and congressional staff briefed on the operation afterward.

That kind of money doesn’t just buy rockets for Hezbollah and Hamas to rain down on Israeli citizens. It buys ICMs, to be used to deliver the nuclear weapons Iran has effectively been given a green light to develop.

Wooden pallets stacked with euros, Swiss francs and other currencies were flown into Iran on an unmarked cargo plane, according to these officials. The U.S. procured the money from the central banks of the Netherlands and Switzerland, they said.

The money represented the first installment of a $1.7 billion settlement the Obama administration reached with Iran to resolve a decades-old dispute over a failed arms deal signed just before the 1979 fall of Iran’s last monarch, Shah Mohammad Reza Pahlavi. …

“With the nuclear deal done, prisoners released, the time was right to resolve this dispute as well,” President Barack Obama said at the White House on Jan. 17—without disclosing the $400 million cash payment.

Naturally the government denies any link between the payment and the freed hostages…

But U.S. officials also acknowledge that Iranian negotiators on the prisoner exchange said they wanted the cash to show they had gained something tangible. … Iranian press reports have quoted senior Iranian defense officials describing the cash as a ransom payment.

The consequences were predictable:

Since the cash shipment, the intelligence arm of the Revolutionary Guard has arrested two more Iranian-Americans.

I wonder if the ayatollahs will settle for $100 million apiece again. There is no reason for them not to raise the price until they start hearing no.

It is now officially open season on Americans. But don’t worry, the Obama Administration will pay the ransom after you have been kidnapped — at least it will until demands escalate beyond the levels even our profligate government will spend.

Obama Especially Secretive When It Comes to Iran

The Obama Administration is the most transparent in history; Obama said so himself. But apparently this does not apply to issues involving America’s worst enemy, the terrorist ayatollahs he endlessly sucks up to in Iran.

Example 1:

Leading members of Congress are calling on President Barack Obama to fire one of his top advisers [deputy national security adviser Ben Rhodes] amid a deepening scandal over accusations the White House intentionally misled lawmakers and the American public about the contents of last summer’s comprehensive nuclear agreement with Iran, according to a letter sent Monday to Obama and obtained by the Washington Free Beacon. …

Rhodes’ reported spin campaign has become a flashpoint following a lengthy New York Times magazine profile detailing his attempts to mislead reporters and D.C. insiders about the contents of the nuclear deal.

The scandal has put the White House in a tricky position as it attempts to uphold the nuclear deal while avoiding public questioning about the deal’s substance.

This is because the more people know about the deal, the more terrified and enraged they become.

One controversy has surrounded the administration’s shifting claims about the legality of Iranian ballistic missile tests under the deal.

While the administration initially promised Congress that such tests would be barred by the agreement, White House officials now maintain that they only are “inconsistent” with it.

Iran doesn’t need ballistic missiles to nuke Israel. It needs them to nuke us.

Whether congressional Republicans get Rhodes’ scapegoated scalp as a trophy is irrelevant; the deception regarding Iran comes straight from the top.

Example 2:

The classified details behind Iran’s treatment of several U.S. sailors who were captured by the Islamic Republic during a tense standoff earlier this year are likely to shock the nation, according to one member of the House Armed Services Committee, who disclosed to the Washington Free Beacon that these details are currently being withheld by the Obama administration.

Rep. Randy Forbes (R., Va.) told the Free Beacon in an interview that the Obama administration is still keeping details of the maritime incident under wraps. It could be a year or longer before the American public receives a full accounting of the incident, in which several U.S. sailors were abducted at gunpoint by the Iranian military.

Forbes has received a full classified briefing. It appalled him.

Forbes suggested that Iran’s treatment of the U.S. sailors—which included filming them crying and forcing them to apologize at gunpoint—may have been much worse than what has been publicly reported.

“I think clearly there were violations of international and maritime law that took place here,” Forbes said. “We [the United States] did almost nothing in response, in fact, to have Secretary [of State John] Kerry actually thank them for releasing our sailors after the way they captured them, I think was a slap in the sailors’ face.”

What else would anyone expect of Hanoi John Kerry — or of Obama?

Example 3:

A senior Iranian military commander claimed that U.S. officials are quietly encouraging the Islamic Republic to keep its illicit ballistic missile tests a secret so as not to raise concerns in the region, according to Persian language comments.

Amir Ali Hajizadeh, commander of the Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps’ Aerospace and Missile Force, said in recent remarks that the Obama administration does not want Iran to publicize its ongoing missile tests, which have raised questions about the Islamic Republic’s commitment to last summer’s comprehensive nuclear agreement.

“At this time, the Americans are telling [us]: ‘Don’t talk about missile affairs, and if you conduct a test or maneuver, don’t mention it,’” Hajizadeh was quoted as saying during a recent Persian-language speech that was translated by the Middle East Media Research Institute.

The response from Hanoi John’s State Department: No comment.

Apparently it isn’t enough for the Obama Administration to cloak its own Iranian misdeeds in secrecy. It wants the ayatollahs to collaborate, lest the public become alarmed.

Iran has been at war with the USA since 1979, and has killed many Americans over this period. Obama has eagerly attempted to befriend it from the beginning.

When our crucial ally Hosni Mubarak encountered difficulty, Obama knifed him in the back on behalf of an Islamic terror umbrella group sworn to our destruction, the Muslim Brotherhood. Muammar Gaddafi was a still less savory character than Mubarak but someone who had been cooperating with the West against Islamic terrorists. When he too faced the nightmarish “Arab Spring,” Obama actively participated in removing him from power, reducing Libya to a failed state infested with Al Qaeda and ISIS. But when the Iranian people revolted against their brutal oppressors, Obama effectively sided with the ayatollahs, offering no encouragement to the rebellion, which was ruthlessly crushed.

They repay him by openly despising him. Even savage maniacs understand that people who suck up to the enemy deserve it.

Obama Administration Opposes Crackdown on Terror on Grounds It Violates Deal Granting Nuclear Weapons to Iran

Now is not the time to crack down on Muslim terrorism. That would violate the deal Obama made facilitating the development of nuclear weapons by the Muslim terrorists running Iran. Hard as it may be to believe, this is on the level:

Senior Obama administration officials are expressing concern that congressional attempts to tighten laws preventing terrorists from entering the United States could violate the Iran nuclear agreement and prompt Tehran to walk away from the agreement. …

Under the revised law, which came in the week of a deadly terrorist attack in California, individuals who have travelled to Iran—a lead sponsor of global terrorism—would no longer be eligible to participate in the Visa Waiver Program, which permits individuals from 38 partner nations to more easily enter the United States.

Congress remains concerned that gaps in the program could prevent federal law enforcement officials from detecting terror-tied individuals before they are granted entrance to U.S. soil.

However, a portion of the Iran nuclear deal mandates that the United States not take any action that could harm Iran’s economic relationships with other countries. Iranian officials [and their allies in the Democrat Party] maintain that the new restrictions violate this passage of the deal.

Even within the Beltway, there are a few left who side with America against the terrorists besieging it:

Sources working with Congress on the Iran deal criticized the Obama administration for attempting to stymie increased action on terrorism due to its desire to preserve the nuclear deal.

“According to the Obama administration’s latest interpretation, the nuclear deal allows Iran to test ballistic missiles in violation of international law, but does not allow Congress to prevent terrorists from coming into the United States,” Omri Ceren, the managing director of press and strategy at The Israel Project, a D.C.-based organization that works with journalists on Middle East issues, told the Washington Free Beacon.

Those ballistic missiles are needed so that the terrorists can hit American cities with the nuclear weapons Obama’s deal enables them to develop.

Yet even now people are resigned to weathering the last miserable year rather than impeaching Obama and putting him on trial for treason.

Obama Has Kept Crucial Details of Iranian Nuke Deal Secret From Congress

At what point does the eagerness of our first openly anti-American president to facilitate the acquisition of nuclear weapons by our worst enemy become prosecutable as treason? This could come close:

President Obama won’t allow Congress to review two key aspects of the Iranian Nuclear deal, Republican lawmakers learned from international partners last week.

Under the terms of the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), the International Atomic Energy Agency would negotiate separately with Iran about the inspection of a facility long-suspected of being used to research long-range ballistic missiles and nuclear weapons.

Long-range ballistic missiles and nuclear weapons go together, because Iran needs both to vaporize cities not in Israel, but in the USA.

“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,” said Representative Mike Pompeo (R., Kan.) in a statement Tuesday. “Not only does this violate the Iran Nuclear Agreement Review Act, it is asking Congress to agree to a deal that it cannot review.”

Who needs Congress to agree? Obama just wants it to get out of the way. Never mind the Advice and Consent Clause. That was written into the Constitution before we had Obama with his pen and his phone.

The terms of the current agreement wouldn’t allow Congress to review any concessions the IAEA makes to get into the site. …

The IAEA will also separately negotiate “how the IAEA and Iran will resolve outstanding issues on possible military dimensions of Iran’s nuclear program,” according to a release from Pompeo’s office.

Senator Tom Cotton (R., Ark.) and Pompeo, who serves on the House Intelligence Committee, learned of the arrangement while meeting with the IAEA in Vienna, Austria last week. “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,” Cotton said in a statement to the press.

Much of it will remain secret until after the fools who put Obama in power are scratching their heads wondering why there are big mushroom clouds where New York and Washington used to be.

Bill Maher Suggests Challenging Obama on Iran Deal Is Racist

Major Garrett overstepped by wondering why Obama didn’t at least ask the ayatollahs to free imprisoned Americans as a token concession before granting them $150 billion in unfrozen assets and a pathway to nuclear weaponry. The flying monkeys have been dispatched to chastise him:

Liberal HBO “Real Time” host Bill Maher took offense to a CBS White House reporter who on Wednesday admitted to intentionally provoking President Obama with a question about Iran.

“Major Garrett is a huge a–hole,” Maher wrote late Wednesday in a message to his 3 million-plus followers on Twitter.

Maher suggested Garrett’s interaction with the president had a racial element to it. “If you wanna ‘strike a nerve’ with [Obama], why not just scream the N word?” Maher’s tweet continued. “That should get his attention.”

Here’s what has Maher playing the race card on behalf of the Moonbat Messiah:

Obama hosted a press conference earlier in the day for reporters to ask questions about the administration’s controversial deal with the Iranian government [supposedly intended] to curb Tehran’s nuclear development program.

Noting that the deal does nothing about four Americans held in captivity by the Iranian government, Garrett asked Obama to explain why he is “content with all the fanfare around this deal to leave the conscience of this nation … unaccounted for in relation to these four Americans?”

The president let out a small laugh before saying that “nobody’s content” and told Garrett he “should know better.”

He sure should. Challenging the Anointed One will earn you the vicious enmity of the liberal establishment, as personified by Maher. Garrett will be lucky if he doesn’t also get audited by the IRS.

Ed Morrissey comments:

I can’t wait for a Republican to be president so that dissent can once more be patriotic, and the media can suddenly feel the need to hold the powerful accountable again.

Whether that will ever happen depends on how quickly Obama’s immigration and Iranian nuke policies bear fruit.

Obama’s Deal Entails Protecting Iran’s Nukes From Israel

Obama’s deal with Iran doesn’t just greenlight both nuclear bombs and ballistic missiles with which to deliver them to America’s shores for our worse enemy and the world’s leading state sponsor of terrorism. It doesn’t just provide a regime that has been at war with the USA with up to $150 billion to spend on proxy wars and terrorism. It does this:

The United States and other world powers will help to teach Iran how to thwart and detect threats to its nuclear program, according to the parameters of a deal reached Tuesday [supposedly] to rein in Iran’s contested nuclear program.

Obama doesn’t want our ally Israel taking out Iran’s nuclear facilities like it did with Iraq.

“The United States and its partners have just become the international protectors of the Iranian nuclear program. Instead of rolling back the Iranian nuclear program, we’re now legally obligated to help the Iranians build it up and protect it,” said one Western source present in Vienna and who is apprised of the details of the deal.

There’s more:

In addition to teaching Iran how to protect its nuclear infrastructure, world powers pledge in the agreement to help Iran construct next-generation centrifuges—the machines that enrich uranium—at its once-secret nuclear site in Fordow, where Iran has been suspected of housing a weapons program.

If this isn’t insanity in the classic rubber room sense, then Daniel Greenfield is correct:

Obama and Kerry have not made this deal as representatives of the United States, but as representatives of a toxic ideology that views America as the cause of all that is wrong in the world. This is not an agreement that strengthens us and keeps us safe, but an agreement that weakens us and endangers us negotiated by men who believe that a strong Iran is better than a strong America.

That is to say, the only word for it is treason.

Now Only Congress Can Stop Obama From Letting Iran Have Nuclear Weapons

mushroom cloud

Unsurprisingly, the terrorist lunatics running Iran, who have been at war with the United States since 1979, are delighted with the deal by which Obama is effectively greenlighting their nuclear weapons program:

Toward the end of an address to the Iranian people on state television, [Iranian President Hassan] Rouhani takes a jab at Israel, saying that the Jewish state had “failed” in its attempts to stop the country’s nuclear project.

“Today people in Lebanon and Palestine are happy because Zionists have tried to block this deal but failed,” Rouhani says.

Wonderful. Those in the US government not inclined to side with our worst enemy are less enthusiastic:

The announcement Tuesday of a landmark nuclear deal with Iran shifts the debate from the negotiating table in Vienna to the floors of Capitol Hill, where a rebellion already is brewing over elements of the deal that critics call a “historic capitulation.” …

Congress, under legislation approved earlier this year, has a say and will be able to approve or reject the terms after a 60-day review period.

These critics point out the deal is “death sentence for the state of Israel,” as Lindsey Graham puts it, and that it will lead to a nuclear arms race in the volatile Middle East.

Further, lawmakers are pointing to at least two provisions: One giving Iran leverage over its own nuclear site inspections, and another that could lift the U.N. arms and missile tech restrictions on Iran in the coming years.

These provisions make it clear that this is not about preventing the No. 1 state sponsor of terrorism from attaining nuclear weapons, but about facilitating this catastrophe — which is consistent with Obama’s consistently pro-Iranian policies.

Israel isn’t the only nation getting served a death sentence. The deal actually calls for lifting sanctions on ballistic missile technology. Our government is effectively providing people who have made it abundantly clear that they want to kill us with the technology to hit our cities with nuclear missiles.

That is treason on a Julius and Ethel Rosenberg scale — except that even giving nuclear weapons technology to Stalin was less malevolent, since the Russians were never crazy enough to set off a nuclear war. The Iranians very likely are.

The deal in hand also gives Iran leverage over the inspection process. The agreement requires international inspectors to ask Iran’s permission first, after which Iran has 14 days to decide whether to grant it.

Why not just cut to the chase and get it over with? We could redirect our missiles at our own cities and give Islamic terrorists the launch codes.

Obama has vowed to veto any attempt to block the deal. If Congress fails to override his veto, millions of Americans are likely die only a few years down the road. How’s that for a historic presidency?

While Iran Toys With Obama, Marine Languishes Forgotten in Iranian Prison

The deserter and probable defector Bowe Bergdahl didn’t get left behind by the Obama Regime, but more honorable soldiers do. Obama and Kerry are too busy getting toyed with by the ayatollahs to comment on the case of Amir Hekmati, so let’s hear from his friend and fellow US Marine Gabriel Justice:
