Iran: Obama Admin Lying About Nuclear Deal for ‘Domestic Consumption’ By Adam Kredo, Free Beacon, July 30, 2015

U.S. downplays Iranian victory to ‘soothe’ fear over deal

Senior Iranian officials are accusing the Obama administration of lying about the details of the recent nuclear accord in order to soothe fears among U.S. lawmakers and Americans about the implications of the deal, which will release billions of dollars to the Islamic Republic while temporarily freezing its nuclear program, according to reports from Iran’s state-controlled media.

As Secretary of State John Kerry and other senior Obama administration figures launch a full-court press to convince Congress to approve the deal, Iranian leaders are dismissing the rhetoric as “aimed at domestic consumption.”

Kerry and other top administration officials have been defending the deal on Capitol Hill in recent days, claiming that it will rein in the Islamic Republic’s contested nuclear program and fix its nuclear “breakout” period, the time required for it to obtain the amount of highly enriched uranium necessary for a nuclear weapon, at one year.

Critics have noted that the deal provides Iran with billions of dollars in sanctions relief that could be spent on terrorism and lifts bans on Iran’s export of weapons and construction of ballistic missiles.

When addressing claims this week by the administration that the deal shuts down Tehran’s nuclear infrastructure, Iranian officials scoffed and said that the Obama administration is misleading the public in order to sell the deal.

Hamid Baeidinejad, an official in the Iranian foreign ministry and one of the country’s nuclear negotiators, scoffed on Wednesday at the Obama administration’s comments, saying that they were meant to placate an American domestic audience.

“The remarks by the western officials are ambiguous comments which are merely uttered for domestic use and therefore we should say that there is no ambiguity in this (nuclear) agreement,” the Fars news agency quoted Baeidinejad saying in an interview with state-controlled radio.

Baeidinejad said that the Obama administration is misleading Americans about the deal in order to “calm opponents in the Congress and Zionist lobbies to soothe the internal conditions prevailing over debates on the nuclear agreement in that country,” Fars, which is also run by the Iranian state, reported.

As Congress spends 60 days reviewing the deal, which it may reject, the Iranian parliament is undertaking the same task.

During a meeting on Wednesday with Laurent Fabius, the French foreign minister, President Hassan Rouhani of Iran urged world powers to keep its commitments under the deal.

These includes lifting sanctions on the nearly $100 billion dollar financial empire of the Iranian Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei and agreeing to bar American inspectors from all Iranian nuclear sites.

“The Iranian government is standing strong on the path of (implementing) the agreement and we will remain committed to our undertakings as long as the other side remains loyal to its obligations,” Rouhani was quoted as saying during a meeting in Tehran with Fabius, who served as a key negotiator for the French.

Rouhani said the agreement could help Iran become a key player on the international stage.

“This agreement is not against any country and our cooperation and consultations to settle the regional problems, including fight against terrorism, humanitarian aids, and materialization of nations’ demands can prove it,” Rouhani was quoted as saying.

Meanwhile, Fabius was met at the airport by Iranian protestors who accused him of serving as an Israeli spy.

“The protesters chanted slogans such as ‘Aids, A French Gift to Iran’, ‘We Neither Forgive nor Forget’, ‘Fabius, Servant of the US, Spy of Israel’ and ‘No Welcome to Aids Lord,’” according to Fars.

Brutal: Tom Cotton Grills Kerry on Iran Deal

Cotton makes the most of his frustratingly limited time, zeroing in on a handful of key points:

(1) Cotton makes clear that the Corker/Cardin legislation, which was signed into law by President Obama, requires that Congress receive every single word of the finalized Iran deal. Having discovered and confirmed the existence of secret side agreements within the overall accord, Cotton wonders whether or how the administration will adhere to that provision of the law. Kerry responds that such matters must be classified in order to respect the privacy of the IAEA.  Cotton’s framing is outstanding: “The Ayatollahs will know what they agreed to, but not the American people.”  Brutal.

(2)
The Arkansas Senator drills down on reports that Iran may be permitted to provide its own soil samples as part of an important nuclear “inspection,” likening this alleged concession to allowing an athlete to submit a urine sample for a drug test without supervision. Kerry says that the US government is “satisfied” that this arrangement — which he’ll neither confirm nor deny — will “provide the answers we need.” The Associated Press quoted a nuclear expert casting doubt on that claim yesterday, arguing that the process in question may not prevent Iran from tampering with the sample they turn over.

(3) With Gen. Dempsey’s help, Cotton demonstrates that Iran is chiefly responsible for providing specialized IEDs to terrorist insurgents in Iraq, who have used the deadly devices to kill hundreds of American soldiers.  Cotton’s point is obvious: This is a regime with a great deal of American blood on its hands and whose leaders still chant “death to America.” This deal rewards those very people with a huge cash injection that can and will be used to promulgate terrorism.  The agreement does not require Iran to cease or even diminish its terrorist activities, regional meddling, and human rights abuses.  Kerry serves up a word salad about pressuring Iran on these other fronts in the future, and notes that American sanctions won’t be lifted against certain American-murdering criminals within the regime.  But other Western sanctions are lifted against those individuals as part of the deal, to which the Obama administration has agreed.  Kerry’s distinction is meaningless.

The ground Cotton powerfully covers over his seven minutes merely scratches the surface of the Iran deal’s irreparable flaws.  The accord is opposed by a majority of Americans.

Does Obama Want Iran to Nuke Israel?

AISR

BY ERIK RUSH

This Thursday, Secretary of State John Kerry appeared at a hearing of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee concerning the Obama administration’s controversial arrangement to lift economic and other sanctions against the Islamic Republic of Iran in exchange for concessions in their nuclear program, a deal in which Kerry was ostensibly the chief negotiator.

One point of contention has been certain “secret side deals” contained in the agreement with Iran. Rep. Mike Pompeo (R-KS), said he had learned from the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) that there in fact were two “side deals” between Iran and the IAEA. On Wednesday, he stated that Kerry “confirmed that there were in fact side deals and he himself had not seen the agreement.”

Yet after Thursday’s hearing, Kerry said “there are no side deals.”

This was in conflict with statements made by National Security Adviser Susan Rice (the Benghazi Sunday news show serial liar). As reported by The Hill, Rice admitted on Wednesday that there are undisclosed “side deals” between Iran and the IAEA as Republicans alleged, but dismissed the idea that they were “secret.”

As they’ve been doing for some time, at the Senate hearing, Republican critics repeatedly suggested the administration’s negotiating team gave in to pressure from the Iranians and systematically capitulated to their demands.

“I believe you’ve been fleeced,” Committee Chairman Bob Corker (R-TN) told Kerry, claiming the deal opens a path for Iran to develop a nuclear bomb.

For the thousandth time: I am sick to death of Republican leaders refusing to acknowledge this criminal administration’s malicious intent, serial sabotage, and treasonous agenda. The longer Republicans mischaracterize the Obama administration’s actions as bungling, incompetent, inept, lacking leadership, weak, or out-of-touch, the more it appears that they are in collusion with the organized crime syndicate currently occupying the White House.

obama iranBarack Hussein Obama intends to make use of Iran in waging a proxy war against the nation of Israel which, as an Islamist (or at least an Islamist sympathizer), Obama loathes. Iran of course will be more than happy to serve in that role, once they have established a viable nuclear arsenal.

Earlier, INN featured one of my columns which included information provided by intelligence sources indicating that Obama was also attempting to enroll both China and Russia in this proxy war. In this instance, Israel’s recent discovery of enough oil and gas reserves in its territorial waters to put the Arab Muslim nations out of business factored largely, but given Obama’s Islamist affinities and his Hitlerian bent, he already had enough reason to wish Israel “wiped off the map,” as the Iranians have promised to do time and again.

Since 2012, it has been known that Obama’s pit bull, Iranian-born Senior Adviser Valerie Jarrett, had engaged in secret talks with Iran, essentially brokering the nuke deal ahead of formal negotiations. In November of 2013, the Times of Israel called the 2013 Geneva negotiations between Western powers and Iran a “facade,” because the terms of the deal had already been negotiated by Jarrett.

Iran-nuclearSo, which is it? Are the majority of Republican leaders pants-pissing morons, or are they essentially Obama’s co-conspirators, merely offering ineffectual token opposition to the administration in order to save face with voters? Weakness, stupidity, or complicity are the only possibilities, and I don’t believe they are all that stupid or that weak. When nuclear war breaks out between Iran and Israel, do they plan to stand alongside their Democrat colleagues, shaking their heads and claiming what a horrible shame it all is, when in fact it is they who helped bring it about?

Further, has this been the case concerning every treasonous act or unconstitutional measure that Obama and his cronies have taken, from engaging in criminal machinations in order to get Obamacare passed, to using federal agencies to persecute private citizens, to planting Islamist operatives in the Department of Homeland Security and the Pentagon, to ignoring jihadi cells training within our borders, to arming Mexican drug cartels and Muslim terrorists, and orchestrating the 2014 illegal alien tsunami?

Have Republican leaders ignored or misrepresented all of these because they, like Obama, support parting America out like a clinically-dead trauma patient with an organ donor card?

If that’s the case, then they must hang for treason with all of those who helped to facilitate Obama’s rise to power and his treasonous, malevolent agenda.

Obama May Be Importing Radical Islamists Into the U.S.

Capture

BY JIM KOURI

The bloody and terrifying war being fought between Muslim terrorists — from radical groups such as the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS), al-Qaida-affiliate Al Nusra Front and others — and the regime of Syrian President Bashir Al-Assad has brought the largest number of refugees and asylum-seekers to the United States in a decade. However, counterterrorism experts within U.S. law enforcement are concerned with terrorists using the refugee exodus as cover to enter the United States. And, according to the U.S. Department of State, many more thousands are expected to arrive in 2016.

Human rights groups specializing in refugees and asylum-seekers, like the International Rescue Committee (IRC), have been urging the U.S. government help thousands more from Syria relocate to the U.S., claiming that more than 12 million are in dire need of some type of humanitarian assistance. Meanwhile, the United Nations has estimated close to 200,000 fighters and civilians have been killed in the savagely fought conflict that includes beheadings, mass shootings of prisoners, killings of Christians and Muslim apostates and many others.

The surge of refugees and asylum seekers from Syria and other Middle Eastern countries, in addition to those coming here with visitors’ visas, has caused concern about the Obama administration properly vetting them, in order to identify Islamists and those with terror ties seeking to exploit the immigration system. Lawmakers are worried that not only is Syria the headquarters of ISIS, the most brutal and deadly of all terrorist groups, but also that Arab country’s state of chaos is making it extremely difficult to screen the refugees, many of whom possess little or no identification documents.

While Syrian refugees have already been resettled in the United States this year — with the goal of bringing upwards of 2,000 in by the years end — a number of American cities and states have been less than cooperative with Obama unilateral actions. A number of Americans are also suspicious of Obama’s program since it appears the only Syrians entering the U.S. are Muslims, a large segment of them being Sunnis, the same sect as al-Qaida, Al Shabaab, Boko Haram and the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria.

Chairman of the House Homeland Security Committee Michael McCaul, R-Texas, had written a letter to President Obama voicing how he and other congressmen are finding it difficult to support Obama’s plan to resettle another 2,000 Syrian refugees in the United States in final months of 2015.

In the letter, McCaul mentioned what he and others have warned the Obama administration about in the past: that radical Muslim terrorists have repeatedly bragged on their Internet websites that there are plans to exploit any international program in order to breach the security of European Union nations and the U.S. mainland.

In the letter to Obama, McCaul also wrote about the national security threats posed by Obama’s magnanimous sounding refugee program that will cost the American people millions of dollars for housing, food, healthcare and other benefits given to refugees. “It’s one of the personal problems I have with the so-called progressives. They are quick to be magnanimous with other people’s lives and other people’s money. Then they give one another awards for their actions which actually cost neither blood nor treasure,” said former U.S Marine and police detective Michael Snopes.

“Despite all evidence towards our homeland’s vulnerability to foreign fighters, the Administration still plans to resettle Syrian refugees into the United States,” McCaul said in his letter to the President, which was copied to Obama’s so-called national security team including Secretary of State John Kerry, Attorney General Loretta Lynch and FBI Director James Comey.

“The Director of the National Counterterrorism Center and the Deputy Director of the FBI both sat before my Congressional Committee… and expressed their concern with admitting refugees we can’t properly vet from the global epicenter of terrorism and extremism in Syria. America has a proud tradition of welcoming refugees from around the world, but in this special situation the Obama Administration’s Syrian refugee plan is very dangerous,” warned Rep. McCaul.

KERRY: We Can’t Reveal Contents of Secret Iran ‘Side Deals’ to American People…

BY DANIEL HALPER

Secretary of State John Kerry testified on Capitol Hill today the U.S. government will not be revealing the contents of secret side deals with Iran to the American people. Senator Tom Cotton wanted to know why it can’t be made public.

Watch the exchange:

“I’d like to stick with you, Secretary Kerry,” Cotton said. “Why can’t we confirm or deny the content of these agreements in public? Why is this classified? It’s not a sensitive U.S. government document.”

“Because we respect the process of the IAEA and we don’t have their authorization to reveal what is a confidential agreement between them and another country,” said Kerry.

Cotton said, “So the ayatollahs will know what they agreed to but not the American people?”

Kerry said that members of Congress would be able to learn about it in a classified briefing.

John Kerry thinks the UN is More Important than Congress!

Shock Headlines:

John Kerry thinks the UN is More Important than Congress!

Kerry Claims it would be “Presumptuous” to Go to Congress before Going to the UN!

It seems that Secretary of State John Kerry and his boss President Barack Obama have forgotten who it is they work for.

This fact was made abundantly clear when, on ABC’s This Week, Secretary Kerry told ABC’s Jon Karl that it would be presumptuous for Congress to get to vote on the deal before the nations of Europe do.

The ABC reporter, Jon Karl, asked, “But the bottom line, the UN is going to vote on this before Congress gets to vote on this?”

“Well, they have a right to do that, honestly. It is presumptuous of some people to say that France, Russia, China, Germany, Britain ought to do what the Congress tells them to do,” said Kerry. “They have a right to have a vote. But we prevailed on them to delay the implementation of that vote out of respect of our Congress.”

How exactly it would be presumptuous, Kerry does not explain.

Here’s the thing that Sec. Kerry seems to have forgotten… HE WORKS FOR US and Congress is US!

Kerry and Obama have a duty to bring these discussions to us (via Congress) before doing anything further on the world stage.

Europe might not like it, but that should not be Kerry’s concern. His concern should be about how we feel about the deal.

The first thing that Kerry should have done upon “completion” of the deal with Iran was fly home, drive to Capitol Hill and deliver the details to Congress, who would then have the opportunity to consider things before voting on whether or not to sign the American people onto the deal.

But that’s not what Kerry thinks.

Kerry thinks that it is more important for him to please these other nations than the very people he answers to – we need to remind him that this is not the case.

Iran hits out at Kerry’s ’empty threats’…

Screen Shot 2015-07-25 at 7.47.49 PM

Tehran (AFP) – Iran hit out Friday against US Secretary of State John Kerry, accusing him of threatening military action against Tehran if it fails to respect a historic nuclear deal sealed on July 14.

“Unfortunately the US Secretary of State once again talked about the rotten rope of ‘the ability of the US for using military force’,” said Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif in a statement.

Zarif decried what he called the “uselessness of such empty threats against the nation of Iran and the resistance of the nation of Iran”, and said such remarks should be consigned “to the last century”.

Despite the agreement reached with Iran on putting the nuclear bomb out of Tehran’s reach, several US officials, including Defence Secretary Ashton Carter, have signalled that military force remains on the table to prevent Iran from obtaining nuclear weapons.

Kerry and other American officials “have repeatedly admitted that these threats have no effect on the will of the people of Iran and that it will change the situation to their disadvantage,” Zarif claimed.

“Therefore, it would be better for Americans to abandon their old habit and put aside once and for all their threatening language and sanctions against this great people,” he added.

Under the July 14 agreement, Iran has agreed to dismantle or mothball much of its nuclear industry in return for an easing and eventual lifting of sanctions.

World powers have called it a historic opportunity to set relations with Iran on a new path
