Obama’s Iran Deal Violated the Constitution and Endangers the Security of the USA and its Allies

The Iran nuclear deal negotiated by the Obama administration violated the Constitution. No matter what President Obama may say about his right to do executive international agreements or deals, he does not have the authority to negotiate treaties with other nations without the advice and consent of the U.S. Senate. Article 2 Section 2 of the Constitution is very clear. It says “the president shall have power, by and with the advice and consent of the Senate, to make treaties, provided that two thirds of the Senators present concur.” Obama called the negotiation with Iran and other countries “a deal” or, as the agreement is formally known as, the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), but this it is still a treaty that needed the advice and consent of the U.S. Senate. The negotiation process of the JCPOA was negotiated by representatives of Iran and the global powers known as the P5+1 (the five permanent members of the United Nations Security Council — China, France, Russia, United Kingdom, United States — plus Germany).

It was a serious mistake off the Republican majority in the Senate and the House of Representatives to allow the president to violate the Constitution one more time without complaining and denouncing in the media the president and without filing a lawsuit in federal court. When Obama wanted to intervene militarily in Syria a few years ago, Republicans and a few Democrats denounced Obama vociferously in the media and the American people sided with Congress and Obama had to back down.

Barack Obama told Congress that he did not need their approval to negotiate a nuclear deal with Iran. Later, due to the complaints of members of Congress, Obama backed down and agreed to give Congress some time to look at the agreement. However, this was a sham. On July 16, 2015, Senate Foreign Relations Committee Chairman Bob Corker (Republican from Tennessee) wrote a letter to President Obama saying, “We urge you to postpone the vote at the United Nations until after Congress considers this agreement.” Obama arrogantly ignored his request and, acting again in bad faith, as soon as the JCPOA was signed in Vienna, he allowed the Security Council of the United Nations to vote and approve the deal (in essence a treaty). Republicans in Congress said they will review the nuclear agreement and have the option of passing a resolution of disapproval. Obama has already stated that he would veto any congressional move to derail the deal.

As August 29, 2015, 30 Democratic Senators announced support for the Iran nuclear deal. If Senate Democrats can get 41 votes to approve the deal, they could block passage of the resolution to disapprove the deal. If Republicans in the Senate reject the deal, Obama has said he would veto the measure. All Republican senators and two Democratic senators, Bob Menendez from New Jersey and Charles Schumer from New York, have stated that they would oppose the nuclear deal. Senate Democrats need 34 votes – four more than they have now – to prevent and override the presidential veto. Obviously, it is a done deal and Obama, one more time has violated the Constitution, and won.

Republicans would need two thirds of both houses of Congress to override his veto. But this is absolutely wrong since any treaty would need the approval of two thirds of the Senate according to the Constitution. One more time the Republicans in Congress have allowed Obama to ignore the Constitution and, even worse, to involve the United Nations in determining issues involving our national security and that of our allies. Obama has taken one more step to take the sovereignty of the United States away and move this nation closer to a planetary government under the United Nations. He is also supporting Bulgarian communist Irina Bokova, UNESCO head to become the United Nations next as Secretary General in 2017.

William F. Jasper wrote an article titled “Obama’s Iran Deal” which was published in The New American magazine on August 24, 2015. He explained that in addition to the serious flaws of the Obama administration’s nuclear deal with Iran, there is the overriding problem of the abdication by the Senate of its constitutional “advice and consent” obligation.

Jasper wrote that on July 14, 2015 international diplomats meeting in Vienna, Austria, announced they had reached an historic agreement known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) to lift economic sanctions against Iran in exchange for the Islamic mullahs’ regime’s acceptance of international inspections of its nuclear energy program. Four days later, President Obama declared that “this deal will make America and the world safer and more secure.” He described the JCPOA as “a deal that will prevent Iran from obtaining a nuclear weapon.” Obama added, “As Commander-in-Chief I make no apology for keeping this country safe and secure through the hard work of diplomacy over the easy rush to war.”

Jasper raised a very important question. He asked the following: “Whether the new agreement been designed to keep America safe and secure, as President Obama claims? Or was it crafted to further empower the United Nations, to further our convergence with other nations and our absorption into a new world order under the UN and other global institutions?”

Jasper pointed out that Federica Mogherini, the high representative of the European Union to the P5+1, was a key participant (which actually makes it P5+1+1). Mogherini is a “Red diaper baby” and was a loyal apparatchik in the Italian Communist Party. She continued her involvement with the Communist Party when it changed its name to the Democrats of the Left — while keeping its same Marxist-Leninist agenda.

Jasper wrote the following: “Mogherini, who is now the European Union’s foreign policy chief, has been a top factotum for the crypto-communist Democrats of the Left, serving, among other roles, as their representative to the Socialist International and the Party of European Socialists. She was given the honor of announcing the breakthrough deal in Vienna on July 14, which (just by coincidence, says the New York Times) happens to be a high holy day for communists the world over. July 14 will go down as a seminal day in the annual calendar of Iran, the Times reported. By coincidence, it is also Bastille Day, the French national day commemorating the beginning of the French Revolution in 1789.”

Federica Mogherini, the high representative of the European Union for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy Vice-President of the European Commission, is a “Red diaper baby” and was a loyal apparatchik in the Italian Communist Party. She spoke to the Brooking Institution which is a branch of the Council of Foreign Relations, the de facto government of the United States for most of the past century.

Jasper pointed out that Mogherini was assisted in the P5+1 effort by fellow communists Sergey Lavrov (Russia’s foreign minister), Wang Yi (China’s foreign minister), and globalists from the United Kingdom, France, Germany, and the United States, led by “Secretary of State John Kerry, a long-time activist member of the Council on Foreign Relations (CFR), the shadow organization that has been the de facto government of the United States for most of the past century.”

Jasper explained that when Secretary John Kerry spoke to the Council of Foreign Relations recently, he told CFR President Richard Haass and CFR members, after being introduced by Haass, the following:

“Well, Richard, thank you. Let me begin by thanking all of you very much for being here early in the morning. As Richard said, in the summertime I know it is not the regular course of business. And I’m proud to have been a member of the Council on Foreign Relations since, I think, about 1971 or something, when I first was opposed to the war and was invited to join when they were reaching out to then genuinely younger members.”

The enormous power and influence of the CFR was also shown by John Kerry’s predecessor, Hillary Clinton. The corrupt, scandal-ridden and liar former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton referred to the CFR as the “mother ship” of the State Department. Hillary Clinton said she was very happy the New York-based CFR organization had opened its satellite office in Washington, D.C. so she would not have to go so far to be told what to do! Sadly, the Department of State has been controlled by the Council of Foreign Relation for many years!

Jasper pointed out that While Secretary John Kerry took center stage at high profile P5+1 meetings, the day-to-day negotiations were led by Under Secretary of State for Political Affairs Wendy Sherman (CFR). The Obama administration team principal for selling the Iran Nuke deal to Congress was made up of Secretary of State John Kerry (CFR), Secretary of Energy Ernest Moniz (CFR), Secretary of the Treasury Jacob Lew (CFR), and White House National Security Advisor Susan Rice (CFR). On July 20, 2015, Obama enlisted a group of 60 former Cabinet Secretaries, national security advisors, military leaders, ambassadors, and other senior national security leaders — virtually all of whom are CFR members — to support the JCPOA with Iran by writing a letter of support.

Zbigniew Brzezinski was President Jimmy Carter White House National Security Council Director. He played a central role in the Carter administration’s betrayal and overthrow of Shah Reza Pahlavi, America’s most steadfast ally in the region. In his place, President Carter, Brzezinski, and company installed the Shia Islamic radical regime of Ayatollah Khomeini, which quickly became the world’s principal state sponsor of terror. Additionally, Brzezinski (CFR) was the architect of David Rockefeller’s Trilateral Commission.

Jasper wrote the following regarding the powerful people who had been enlisted to support Obama’s Iran nuclear deal: “The group included Secretary of State Madeleine Albright; Secretary of Defense William Perry; Secretary of the Treasury Paul O’Neill; National Security Advisors Zbigniew Brzezinski and Brent Scowcroft; Under Secretaries of State Nicholas Burns and Thomas R. Pickering; U.S. Ambassadors Ryan Crocker and Stuart Eizenstat; U.S. Senators Tom Daschle, Carl Levin, George Mitchell, Nancy Landon Kassebaum; Admiral Eric Olson; Under Secretary of Defense for Policy Michele Flournoy; and Assistant Secretary for Non-proliferation Robert Einhorn. Zbigniew Brzezinski’s presence among these experts is particularly noteworthy, as he played a central role in the Carter administration’s betrayal and overthrow of Shah Reza Pahlavi, America’s most steadfast ally in the region, who was also a moderating influence on Islam. In his place Carter, Brzezinski, and company installed the Shia-Leninist regime of Ayatollah Khomeini, which quickly became the world’s principal state sponsor of terror — and conveniently supplied the CFR one-worlders with a perpetual crisis to be exploited for continuous moves toward world government. Brzezinski (CFR), Jimmy Carter’s tutor and the architect of David Rockefeller’s Trilateral Commission, was assisted in creating the Iran fiasco by fellow CFR comrades in the administration, such as Harold Brown, Cyrus Vance, Richard Cooper, Richard Gardner, Andrew Young, Anthony Lake, Sandy Berger, Robert Gates, George Ball, Milton Katz — not to mention the CFR constabulary among the establishment media choir that provided indispensable support. Carter himself later joined the CFR, formalizing a relationship that he had earlier chosen to keep hidden for political purposes.”

The United Nations, the Council of Foreign Relations declared Iran deal “International Law”

Jasper pointed out that the timing of the release of the letter of support by the 60 experts, July 20, 2015, was not an accident. On the very day the United Nations Security Council voted to endorse the JCPOA, despite appeals by members of Congress to Obama to ask the member nations of the Security Council to wait until Congress had had an opportunity to review the agreement. Immediately, the CFR establishment declared that, as a result of the United Nations Security Council vote, the Iran deal was now “international law.” There is nothing that Congress or the American people can do but accept it.

President Obama presented the Iran nuclear deal to the nation with the false choice to accept it or go to war

David Jackson wrote an article entitled “Obama: The choice is the Iran nuclear deal or war” which was published in USA Today on July 16, 2015.

Jackson explained that President Obama aggressively defended the Iran nuclear agreement against its critics on July 15, 2015 saying at the White House that it would prevent Tehran from making nuclear weapons and claiming that the alternative would be military force. He has stated the following: “Either the issue of Iran obtaining a nuclear weapon is resolved diplomatically, through a negotiation, or it’s resolved through force, through war. Those are the options.”

Jackson pointed out that the nuclear deal with Iran has many critics in the United States and around the world. These critics have stated that Iran could cheat and violate the agreement, as it has done in the past, and acquire nuclear weapons. The Prime Minister of Israel Benjamin Netanyahu called the deal a historic mistake, stating that sanctions relief will provide Iran with a “jackpot” of billions of dollars it can use “to pursue its aggression and terror in the region and in the world.” Netanyahu, on a media blitz of his own, told NBC News that the deal also threatens the United States by giving “the number one terrorist regime in the world” a chance to pursue nuclear weapons through subterfuge.

Jackson indicated that under the nuclear agreement with Iran, the United States and its allies will reduce sanctions on Iran as it cuts back on activities that could be used to make nuclear weapons. The Republican majority Congress will review the nuclear agreement and has the option of passing a resolution of disapproval. Obama has already stated that he would veto any congressional move to derail the deal. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, Republican from Kentucky, promised a thorough review of the nuclear accord, including hearings, witnesses, and ultimately a vote in Congress. The basic test, according to Senator McConnell, is: “Can the agreement meet its essential test of leaving our country and our allies safer?”

President Obama spoke during a press conference in the East Room of the White House in response to the Iran nuclear deal on July 15, 2015.

Jackson wrote that President Obama began a strong media offensive to sell the deal to skeptics in Congress and the Middle East. He told reporters that the world faces “a fundamental choice” between closing pathways to Iranian nuclear weapons and the prospect of military action to stop an unrestricted Iranian weapons program. The president stated the following: “This deal makes our country and the world safer and more secure. If we don’t choose wisely, I believe future generations will judge us harshly for letting this moment slip away.”

Jackson explained that President Obama acknowledged the fact that the nuclear deal does not remove all threats posed by Iran. Obama said that the United States and its allies will continue to confront Iran over its support of terrorism and its efforts to exert influence on other countries in the Middle East. Obama said that Israel and other critics have legitimate reasons to distrust Iran.

Secretary of State John Kerry and his Iranian counterpart, Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif, shake hands a they concluded a negotiation over nuclear weapons. This deal was a victory for Iran.

Senator Marco Rubio, Republican from Florida and presidential candidate, wanted an amendment to the nuclear agreement stating that Iran had to recognize the right of Israel as a nation before the agreement could be approved. Unfortunately, Senate Majority Leader Mitch Mike Connell did not allow the amendment to come for a vote. Senator Ted Cruz, Republican from Texas and presidential candidate, protested the action by the Republican Senate Majority Leader and said on the Senate floor that he was behaving like the previous Democratic Senate Majority Leader Senator Harry Reid from Nevada. He also accused Senator McConnell of lying to him and other senators regarding the deal made to approve the Export Import Bank.

Lastly, David Jackson pointed out that President Obama stated that the agreement does not depend on Iran changing its behavior, but instead it is designed to solve one particular problem: “Making sure they don’t have a bomb.” However, many critics of the nuclear accord said that the agreement will have the opposite effect. Israel’s ambassador to the United States, Ron Dermer, said on MSNBC’s Morning Joe that “This deal does not block Iran’s path to the bomb — it paves it.”

Why Israel and others consider that the nuclear accord with Iran is very dangerous

Chaim Shacham, Consul General of Israel to Florida and Puerto Rico, wrote an article titled “The tale of the scorpion and the frog” which was published in the Miami Herald on July 21, 2015.

Shacham explained the story of the scorpion and the frog. It was first related to in the Talmud (Nedarim 41a), the seminal ancient Jewish legal text compiled in the fourth century. Chaim Shacham wrote that a scorpion wanting to cross a river meets a hungry frog. Since the scorpion cannot swim, he asks the frog to carry him across the river on his back. In return, the scorpion promised the frog that he would provide him with the food he needs from the plentiful hunting ground on the other side. The frog, however, is quite concerned and stated to the scorpion, “If you sting me during the crossing, I will surely drown.” The scorpion responded to the frog with perfect logic: “But if you drown, my dear frog, I will also drown.”

The frog then agrees to permit the scorpion to ride on his back and he begins the swim. Halfway through the crossing, the scorpion stings the frog, paralyzing him, and the two begin to sink. With his last breaths the stunned frog cried out to the scorpion “Why did you sting me!?” The scorpion angrily retorted “We are both dying because of you! Although you thought I was logical, you should have seen that I was still a scorpion!”

Chaim Shacham pointed out that this parable comes to mind when Israelis assess the nuclear deal just reached with Iran. He stated the following: “The Iranian regime is the foremost sponsor of terrorism in the world, is on a march of conquest in the Middle East, officially denies the Holocaust, flagrantly violates the human rights of its own citizens, is directly involved in the murder of tens of thousands of Syrian civilians, and vows to annihilate the one and only Jewish state. When Iran tries to build nuclear weapons, it must be stopped. From Israel’s perspective, the negotiations between the world powers and Iran, meant to prevent a Tehran from gaining nuclear weapons have not achieved their vital objective. Quite the opposite, they appear to have paved the path to Iranian nuclear proliferation.”

Chaim Shacham then stated the many reasons why the nuclear accord with Iran is very dangerous:

“▪ Iran can now choose between two paths to the bomb, one through violating the agreement and the second, through respecting it. Violating the terms would require overcoming the limited inspection mechanism, which is plausible, since Iran has done this in the past. While respecting the terms would allow Iran to have an unlimited ability to enrich uranium with full international legitimacy after about 10 years. For Iran, waiting a decade to effortlessly achieve its long-standing nuclear goals is not very long at all.

▪ The agreement’s inspection mechanism must provide Iran up to 24 days warning before inspectors can visit newly identified suspicious sites. This is like giving a drug dealer several weeks’ notice before searching his house. The agreement also requires divulging to the Iranians the intelligence information on the basis of which the inspection is requested.

▪ The agreement fails to condition the lifting of the economic sanctions and the other restrictions on Iran’s nuclear program upon any actual change in Iran’s belligerent behavior. The deal does not have a “stick” requiring Iran to cease its regional aggression or its worldwide campaign of terrorism before offering its many economic and nuclear “carrots”.

▪ The agreement provides Iran with hundreds of billions of dollars in sanctions relief, direct investment, oil sales and unfrozen assets. This cash windfall will naturally fund unrepentant Iran’s terrorism and aggression that continue to undermine regional and global stability.

▪ The agreement allows Iran to continue developing advanced centrifuges, which will enable Iran to enrich much more uranium much faster once the deal expires.

▪ Israel is not alone in recognizing the dangers posed by the deal. Iran’s Arab neighbors are no less concerned. When Arab states and Israel agree; it’s worth paying attention.

▪ Arab nations threatened by Tehran’s growing power in the Middle East are likely to seek nuclear parity with Iran, sparking a nuclear arms race in the world’s most volatile region.

While Israel truly appreciates the global efforts made to confront the Iranian threat, and has encouraged them, it now has no choice but to raise its voice in warning. The recent agreement has fallen far short of its goals. Tragically, the savage Iranian scorpion has skillfully convinced the logic-loving Western frog that it’s safe to carry him on its back. It is Israel’s hope that its global allies in the search for peace and stability in the Middle East will urgently realize and address the shortcomings in the Iran nuclear deal before it stings us all.”

While Obama cheered the terrible nuclear deal he reached with Tehran, Israel, our best ally in the Middle East was fierce in its criticism. Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu stated the following regarding the nuke deal: “It is not a historic agreement, it’s a historic mistake. It has not made the world a safer place. Like the agreement with North Korea in 2005, this agreement has made the world a much more dangerous place. For years the international community has demanded that Iran cease all uranium enrichment. Now, for the first time, the international community has formally consented that Iran continue its enrichment of uranium.”

Prime Minister Netanyahu said the following: “The deal leaves Iran taking only cosmetic steps which it could reverse easily within a few weeks, and in return, sanctions that took years to put in place are going to be eased. This first step could very well be the last step. Without continued pressure, what incentive does the Iranian regime have to take serious steps that actually dismantle its nuclear weapons capability?”

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu disagreed with the nuclear deal with Iran saying “It is not a historic agreement, it’s a historic mistake.” On July 14, 2015 Netanyahu said “By not dismantling Iran’s nuclear program, in a decade this deal will give an unreformed, unrepentant and far richer terrorist regime the capacity to produce many nuclear bombs, in fact and the entire nuclear arsenal with the means to delivery it.”

Israel reserves the right to defend itself

Israel cannot participate in the international celebration, which is based on Iranian deception and the world self-delusion,” said Yuval Steinitz, minister of Strategic and Intelligence Affairs responsible for international relations, and a member of the Knesset. Netanyahu in a written statement said Israel “is not obliged to the agreement.” He wrote that “The regime in Iran is dedicated to destroying Israel and Israel has the right and obligation to defend itself with its own forces against every threat. I want to make clear as prime minister, Israel will not let Iran develop a nuclear military capability.”

On July 15, 2015 opposition leader Issac Herzog of the Labor Party stated the following: “I think it is bad for Israel. Netanyahu and I will certainly cooperate when it comes to the security of Israel. As an Israeli patriot, this deal is dangerous… Lifting sanctions will immediately give Iran a lot of money and resources, which will reach our enemies at our borders. Now Iran is out of the cage and will become a regional Tiger.” It is important to remember that Israel in a surprise attack bombed a reactor construction site in Iraq in 1981.

Iran’s Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei said Israeli officials “cannot be even called humans” and referred to Netanyahu as “the rabid dog of the region.” Since the Islamic Republic, led by Shiite clerics in the predominantly Shiite nation was established in 1979, Iran has considered Israel as an illegitimate nation with no right to exist.

Hassan Rouhani, the seventh President of Iran, was elected in 2013. He is also a former lawmaker, academic and former diplomat. He has been a member of Iran’s Assembly of Experts since 1999, member of the Expediency Council since 1991, and member of the Supreme National Security Council since 1989.

Bill Gertz wrote an article on July 21, 2015 entitled “Ex-IAEA Leader: 24-Day Inspection Delay Will Boost Iranian Nuclear Cheating” for the blog Washington Free Beacon. Gertz explained that permitting Iran to delay inspections of suspect nuclear sites for up to 24 days will facilitate cheating by that nation on the nuclear deal reached in Vienna, according to Olli Heinonen, the former deputy director of the International Atomic Energy Agency, who dealt with past Iranian nuclear cheating. Heinonen, a 27-year veteran of the IAEA, said in the past Iran had “sanitized” two suspected nuclear sites by “refurbishing and repainting the locations in an effort to hide illegal uranium enrichment from inspectors.” Heinonen expressed his skepticism about the inspection provisions for suspected nuclear sites contained in the deal reached with Iran, the United States, and five other nations on July 14, 2015. He added the following: “Iran has not changed its nuclear course. It’s keeping all the options open for building nuclear arms. Iran has signed an IAEA additional protocol permitting short-notice inspections but is delaying ratification for eight years.”

Heinonen, the Finnish nuclear expert, said components for nuclear bombs or warheads can be put together in a relatively small space, some 239 square yards in size. To make matters worse with a dispute settlement process that gives the Iranians 24 days before allowing inspectors in, hiding nuclear arms development work will be made easier, he said.

Gertz pointed out that the JCPOA accord requires Iran to resolve any disputed requests by the IAEA for inspections of suspect nuclear sites within 14 days. He wrote the following: “If the dispute is not resolved, an appeal would be made to a joint commission of representatives of the six nations that then have a week to deal with the issue. Iran would be required to comply with commission requests in three days, for a total of 24 days of the dispute resolution process. Large facilities such as Iran’s Natanz, where large numbers of centrifuges are kept, will be easier to monitor. But small, clandestine sites can be dismantled in 24 days.”

Olli Heinonen said that “Much of this equipment is very easy to move, so you can take it out over the night … and then there is this dispute settlement time which is 24 days—you will use that to sanitize the place, make new floors, new tiles on the wall, paint the ceiling and take out the ventilation.” Heinonen stated the following: “A large-scale enrichment plant would not be easily scrubbed in 24 days, but smaller covert facilities that are used toward the end of the nuclear weapons process can be hidden or sanitized in 24 days. You can compare it to your home. This [nuclear] equipment can be taken out in one or two nights. How long will it take for you to renovate your home? It doesn’t take three weeks.”

It is obvious that the ill-conceived and dangerous Obama’s nuclear agreement gives Iranian officials the ability to question why inspectors want to examine suspected facilities, a concession that will make it easier to cheat.

Iranian Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khameneikeeps calling for the destruction of Israel and continues to say “Death to America”

When the Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, the bloody dictator in charge of Iran, says “Death to America”, he does not mean death only to Republicans, or to Democrats or to independents, but death to all Americans. Therefore, members of Congress should not look at the nuclear deal as a partisan issue, but as one involving national security.

On July 11, 2015, Iranian Supreme Leader Ayatollah Khamenei said the following: “Fighting global arrogance is the core of our revolution and we cannot put it on hold. Get ready to continue your fight against the global arrogance.” Six days later, the Supreme Leader stated “Our policy regarding the arrogant United States government will not change… We don’t have any negotiations or deal with the United States on different issues in the world or the region.”

Ayatollah Khamenei keeps calling for the destruction of Israel. The Islamic radical dictator Ali Khamenei stated: “We will never stop supporting our friends in the region and the people of Palestine, Yemen, Syria, Iraq, Bahrain and Lebanon. Is this the person that Obama will trust not to cheat on the irresponsible Iran Nuke Deal he wants Congress to approve?

Patriot News Daily published an article regarding the Iranian nuclear deal. It pointed out that if the United States and the other countries involved hoped the nuclear agreement with Iran would lead to normalize relations down the road, Iranian Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei has nipped that prospect in the bud. When he was speaking about the deal, the Islamic holy leader denied a wider shift in foreign policy. Ayatollah Ali Khamenei stated the following: “We have repeatedly said we don’t negotiate with the U.S. on regional or international affairs; not even on bilateral issues. There are some exceptions like the nuclear program that we negotiated with the Americans to serve our interests.”

Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, the bloody dictator in charge of Iran, keeps calling for the destruction of Israel and continues to say “Death to America”. He said “Even after this deal our policy towards the arrogant U.S. will not change.” Sadly, this religious fanatic feels he has defeated the Great Satan and the West with the nuclear accord that was signed.

The article pointed out that Iranians are excited about the deal since they will see economic sanctions against the country lifted in exchange for nuclear restrictions. Khamenei supports the deal his negotiators brought home, but he warns that it changes nothing about how Tehran interacts with the West.

Negotiating with terrorists is against United States policy

The article pointed out that the United States has a longstanding policy against negotiating with terrorists and those who give financial support to terrorists should be no exception. This deal is especially troubling because it is difficult to determine what the United States got out of it. A safer Iran? If that was the case, then why Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is the deal’s foremost critic. Iran’s other Middle Eastern neighbors also criticized the deal. It was tragic that Obama could not even secure the release of the three Americans currently in Iranian custody.

The article concluded by explaining the following: “What did President Obama hope to accomplish with his parade of concessions? How is the world better off now than it was before this deal was finalized? Does Obama believe that this is the first step towards the magical Westernization of Iran? Or is this actually a sly move to weaken Israel’s position against Palestine? It is obvious that this agreement puts our strongest Middle Eastern ally in extraordinary jeopardy. Obama, who has been a firm advocate against Israeli “occupation,” could see this deal as a way to gain a firmer hand over Israel. Here’s a hint, Americans: If you’re in the middle of a war against radical, dangerous Islam, maybe don’t elect a president with the name Hussein. And if you do, don’t be surprised when his allegiances are, um, conflicted.”

Retired United States generals, admirals and former political officials have spoken strongly against the Iran nuclear accord

Avi Lewis wrote an article titled “200 retired US generals lobby Congress to reject Iran deal” which was published in the Times of Israel on August 26, 2015. He explained that almost 200 retired United States generals, admirals and former political officials have come out strongly against the Iran nuclear accord in a letter and have called upon Congress to reject it the grounds that it will “enable Iran to become far more dangerous.” Among the patriots who opposed the terrible agreement with Iran were top former career officers from every branch of the U.S. military as well as officials who have served in the White House under both Democratic and Republican administrations. They wrote a letter which was addressed to Republican and Democratic senators and congressmen and stated: “The agreement will enable Iran to become far more dangerous, render the Mideast still more unstable and introduce new threats to American interests as well as our allies.”

One of those that signed the letter was retired Vice Commander of U.S. Air Forces in Europe, General Thomas McInerney. The general stated the following: “What I don’t like about this is the number one leading radical Islamic group in the world is the Iranians. They are purveyors of radical Islam throughout the region and throughout the world. And we are going to enable them to get nuclear weapons. Why would we do that?”

Iran will be allowed to conduct its own inspection atParchin, an explosive testing place to detonate a nuclear weapon, and other secret deals made with theInternational Atomic Energy Agency

On September 1, 2015 Roger Aronoff wrote an article entitled “Iran Nuclear Side Deals Expose Additional Flaws which was published in the website bwcentral.org on September 1, 2015. Previously, Aronoff’s article had been published in the website Accuracy in Media.

Secretary of State John Kerry and his Iranian counterpart, Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif, shake hands as they concluded a negotiation over nuclear weapons. Zariff is smiling because he knows Iran received the economic sanctions relief it wanted and gave very little in returned.

Aronoff explained that more Democrats in Congress are falling in line to support the Iranian nuclear deal, “despite recent revelations further exposing the farcical nature of the inspections regime on which it depends.” This is occurring at a time when the details of one of the International Atomic Energy Agency’s (IAEA) secret deals with Iran have gone public. The nuclear accord negotiated by the Obama administration makes it all the more unlikely that Iran will face serious scrutiny from the U.S. and the other nations that signed the terrible deal, or the IAEA, under the inspections regime.

Aronoff pointed out that the Associated Press and Fox News have reported that with the IAEA’s second of two secret side deals, Iran will, essentially, be allowed to inspect itself at the Iranian military site of Parchin. On July 23, 2015 during a Senate committee hearing, both Senators James Risch, Republican from Idaho, and Bob Menendez, Democrat from New Jersey, confronted administration officials about the IAEA’s secret deals with Iran. Senator Risch stated the following: “Parchin was designed and operated as an explosive testing place where they designed a detonation trigger for a nuclear weapon. What you guys agreed to was, we can’t even take samples there. IAEA can’t take samples there. They’re going to be able to test by themselves. … How in the world can you have a nation like Iran doing their own testing?” Senator Menendez asked Secretary of State John Kerry whether this was true, and was told by Kerry that he could neither confirm nor deny that assertion. He said that it would be better to be fully briefed in a classified setting. Kerry added, “The IAEA has said that they are satisfied that they will be able to do this in a way that does not compromise their needs and that adequately gets the answers that they need.”

Aronoff wrote that the website The Washington Free Beacon reported on August 18 that IAEA Director General Yukiya Amano came recently to brief members of Congress and others about the nuclear accord. However, Amano “did not discuss the nature of side deals with Iran that the United States is not permitted to know about.” Iran apparently threatened Amano in a letter meant to ensure he did not reveal specific information about the nature of nuclear inspections going forward, according to Iranian AEOI [Iran’s Atomic Energy Organization] spokesman Behrouz Kamalvandi.

Aronoff said that an editorial of The Washington Examiner stated that “Such an arrangement would give the Iranian regime effective control of the process, making inspections of this site a farce. If this is so, then the Obama administration has agreed to give Iran massive sanctions relief, amounting to $140 billion, in exchange for little more than promises that cannot be verified independently.”

Former Congressman and retired Lieutenant Colonel Allen West said regarding the Iranian nuke deal the train has left the station and won’t be coming back

Allen West wrote an article entitled “Why What’s Happening in Iran Now Means Game Over Already” which was posted in his Facebook page. He explained that President Obama recently called all those who opposed the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) Iranian agreement “crazies.” Such insults by Obama are typical of the followers of the Marxist Saul Alinsky’s tactic of demonization and ridicule of those who oppose his misguided policies. West pointed out that an article by the Washington Post stated the following:

“The ink was barely dry on a landmark agreement with Iran to limit its nuclear program before a German government plane packed with the nation’s economic elite touched down in Tehran. They were just the first in a rush of European ministers and businesspeople flocking to a market that is poised to reopen after years of grinding sanctions. Upscale Tehran hotels are packed and tables at trendy restaurants are scarce as foreigners jostle for bargains, even amid uncertainty over whether President Obama can overcome congressional opposition to the deal.

The steady stream of visitors to Tehran is the latest sign of the Atlantic-wide divide between the United States and Europe, where there is scant opposition to the pact that aims to crimp Iran’s nuclear ambitions. Obama and Secretary of State John F. Kerry have warned detractors that they would be unable to reimpose a multinational trade embargo if Congress rejected the plans. The five other countries that helped broker the deal have also told Congress that they will not return to the negotiating table. The high-level trips show that U.S. leaders can’t even keep Europeans from booking tickets to Tehran ahead of the congressional vote, which needs to take place by September 17.”

West wrote the following: “Ladies and gents, let’s be honest, this is over. Even if by some amazing grace there are enough votes to override President Obama’s veto, the floodgates are already open and folks are looking to establish new economic markets — free market supply and demand. And in the end, the Iranian regime will be able to say to their people, “We defeated the great Satan and now look how we’ve restored Iran’s prominence and influence.”

West concluded his article by saying the following: “What’s at stake with the September vote in Congress on the JCPOA? Yes, it’s an historic event, launching us on the path to a replay of one of the darkest periods of history, World War II. The indicators and warnings are strikingly — and scarily — parallel. Who will history deem the “crazies” when all is said and done? Sadly, it will be Obama and his herd of followers.”

Iran is an existential threat to the United States, Israel, Middle Eastern countries and the West

Obama’s Iranian deal will provide Tehran with up to $150 billion in economic sanctions relief, nearly half of that nation’s annual Gross Domestic Product (GDP) which will embolden the terrorist Islamic regime to confront militarily the United States, Israel and other American allies in the region. It will destabilize the entire Middle East and it will set a nuclear race with other Arab countries which are enemies of Iran.

The fact is that Iran has been at the war with the United States since November 1979 when in an act of war it invaded the U.S. Embassy Tehran capturing 52 embassy personnel holding them hostages for 444 days. Iranian operatives blew up a barrack housing U.S. Marines in Lebanon killing 241 in 1983. Iran was also involved in the 1996 Khobar Towers bombings that killed 19 American airmen who were living in those towers. After the United States invasion of Iraq in March 2003, Iran armed and trained Shiite militia that attacked and killed and injured thousands in the military.

Iran was responsible for more deaths and injuries of members of U.S. Armed Forces in Iraq and Afghanistan than al-Qaeda, Sunni rebels or the Taliban. Iran provided U.S. enemies with improvised explosive devices (IEDs) and bombs that were placed along roads and other areas. Iran has spilled a lot of American blood over the years. The Department of State has designated Iran as a state sponsor of terrorism for more than three decades. Yet, that nation has never been punished for killing and maiming so many of our military.

Iran continues to fund and train Shiite militias, many terrorist organizations, such as Hezbollah and Hamas, and Houthi rebels who have been and continue to be responsible for many deaths in the Middle East. Iran already controls four other countries in the Middle East—Iraq, (except for the Kurdish territory), Yemen, parts of Syria and Lebanon—through its militia Hezbollah. Iran has given billions of dollars to the Syrian dictator Bashar al-Assad who is responsible for the deaths of tens of thousands and the exile of millions of Syrians.

If and when Iran receives up to $150 billion in economic sanctions relief, it will be a greater threat to our best ally in the Middle East, Israel, as well as other U.S. allies in the region. Iran is currently funding rebel groups and terrorist organizations in Syria, Iraq, Afghanistan, Bahrain, Lebanon, Saudi Arabia, the Gaza Strip and Yemen. Beyond the Middle East, Iranian Islamic jihadist operatives have committed acts of terror in Argentina, Uruguay, Peru, Bulgaria, Thailand, Nigeria, India and the United States.

Iran remains the leading state–sponsor of terrorism in the world and its Islamic totalitarian regime brutally represses internal dissent. Iran continues to hold prisoners three United States citizens and continues to withhold information on the fourth U.S. citizen last seen in that nation. Obama shamefully did not demand Iran to return our citizens when his administration approved the nuclear deal.

Retired four-star Admiral James Lyons have denounced that Iran has built military bases with intercontinental ballistic missiles in Venezuela and extracts uranium from that communist nation. Admiral Lyons have said that this military bases with missiles pointing to US cities represent a serious threat to our national security, ask you a was during the October missile crisis of 1962. Admiral Lyons recommended of the United States conduct a surprise air attack and destroy those missile bases in Venezuela before Iran develop nuclear weapons. Does anyone think Barack Obama would do such a thing?

Retired Admiral James Lyon has accused President Obama of being anti-American, Anti-Western, pro-Iran, and pro-Muslim Brotherhood. He discussed the many missed opportunities that the United States has had to bring down this radical Islamic theocratic regime, which is a major threat to our national security and that of our allies, beginning with President Jimmy Carter until now.

Retired Admiral James Lyon served in the Citizens Commission on Benghazi along with many other patriots. Citizens’ Commission on Benghazi after many months of investigation issued an interim report in April 2014 entitled “How America Switched Sides in the War on Terror.” It concluded that President Obama entered into a war in Libya violating the Constitution since Congress did not authorize it. Later Obama, with the assistance of Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, had been engaged in a Middle Eastern gun-running operation without Congressional authority and in violation of United States laws.

The president violated his oath of office and multiple laws by sending weapons to and working with terrorist groups during the civil war in Libya. He continued to violate laws by later sending weapons from Libya to Turkey knowing that those weapons would eventually fall into the hands of al Qaeda-linked terrorist groups as well as the Islamic State who were fighting in Libya. Moreover, Obama worked with the Muslim Brotherhood in the United States and Muslim nations to engage in a cover-up.

President Obama committed treason, dereliction of duty, and criminal negligence in Libya during the civil war against Qaddafi and for his refusal to save our diplomats and Navy SEALs in Benghazi. President Barack Obama is unfit to be our commander-in-chief and must be impeached by the House of Representatives and the Senate must hold a trial. This president simply cannot be trusted to negotiate in favor of our nation. Obama is the worst negotiator in the White House in our history, with the exception of Franklin Delano Roosevelt, who gave Russian dictator Joseph Stalin all of Eastern Europe. How can we possibly trust Barack Obama to negotiate a nuclear deal with Iran which would protect our national security and that of our allies in the Middle East?

William R. Graham, Henry F. Cooper, Fritz Ermarth, and Peter Vincent Pry wrote an article entitled “Experts: Iran Now a Nuclear-Ready State, Missiles Capable of Hitting U.S.” which was published by Newsmax on February 1, 2015. These individuals are experts on national security and nuclear issues. Their backgrounds are as follows:

  • William R. Graham served as President Reagan’s science adviser, administrator of NASA, and chairman of the Congressional EMP Commission.
  • Ambassador Henry F. Cooper was director of the Strategic Defense Initiative and chief U.S. negotiator to the defense and space talks with the USSR.
  • Fritz Ermarth was chairman of the National Intelligence Council.
  • Peter Vincent Pry is executive director of the Task Force on National and Homeland Security, a congressional advisory board and served in the Congressional EMP Commission, the Strategic Posture Commission, the House Armed Services Committee, and the CIA.

On January 22, 2015, the experts wrote that in spite of intelligence uncertainties and unknowns about Iran’s nuclear weapons and missile programs, “We know enough now to make a prudent judgment that Iran should be regarded by national security decision makers as a nuclear missile state capable of posing an existential threat to the United States and its allies.” The Jerusalem Post reported that Iran deployed a new intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM) “whose range far exceeds the distance between Iran and Israel, and between Iran and Europe.”

Iran has sent into orbit satellites weighing over a ton. The experts have pointed out that this means it could also deliver a nuclear warhead against the United States or any other nation on this planet. Moreover, Iran has orbited several satellites on “south polar trajectories passing over the Western Hemisphere from south to north, as if practicing to elude U.S. Ballistic Missile Early Warning Radars and National Missile Defenses, which are oriented to detect and intercept threats coming from the north.”

If the Islamic regime of Iran is able to produce nuclear weapons, the Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei could order its military to use one of its satellites to explode at a high altitude an atomic bomb on the center of the United States. Such an explosion of a nuclear weapon detonated over the center of our beloved country will generate an electromagnetic pulse (EMP) field across all 48 contiguous states of the United States. The electromagnetic pulse (EMP) will probably destroyed the entire national electric grid and other life-sustaining critical infrastructures. Within a few months, more than 80% of the Americans will die of starvation. Of course, the United States could launch a similar strike against Iran. But, one that has to remember that in the Middle East, we are dealing with Jihadists who believe than dying for Islam will take them to Heaven. These terrorists have a culture of death. It is precisely for that reason that they feel they will defeat the West since we have a culture of life.

Is this a real danger? Absolutely! The experts have indicated that Iranian military writings describe eliminating the United States with an EMP attack. United States Representative Trent Franks in a congressional testimony given in December 2014 said that an official Iranian military document endorses making a nuclear EMP attack against the United States. The document describes the decisive effects of an EMP attack no fewer than 20 times. Iran has missiles capable of delivering a nuclear weapon. But, does Iran have a nuclear warhead?

The expert pointed out that in 2008, Mohammed ElBaradei, then director general of the UN’s International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA), warned that Iran could develop a nuclear weapon within six months. The IAEA nuclear watchdog has repeated this warning every year since then.

The experts wrote that on January 20, 2014 former IAEA Deputy Director General Olli Heinonen warned that Iran could build a nuclear weapon in two to three weeks. He also admitted that this estimate was based only on Iran’s known capabilities — not on what Iran may be capable of doing or may already have done in secret facilities. Iran has underground facilities suspected of being used for the development of nuclear weapons to which IAEA has been repeatedly denied access. IAEA has found out that Iran has experimented with implosion technology, necessary for making more sophisticated nuclear weapons. IAEA also discovered plans for a nuclear warhead that could fit on Iran’s missiles.

The experts wrote the following: “We know from our own experience that developing a re-entry vehicle (RV) for a nuclear missile warhead is not all that difficult. The U.S., working from scratch and using the technology of over 50 years ago, in 1955, developed its first RV for the Thor, Jupiter, and Atlas missiles in just a few years. Nor is it necessary for Iran to test a nuclear weapon in order to develop a missile warhead.”

On September 6, 2007, Israel conducted a successful airstrike on a nuclear reactor in the Deir ez-Zor region of Syria killing many nuclear technicians. North Korea had built the nuclear facility at the request of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad. Iran financed the Syrian nuclear reactor. Israel estimated that Iran paid North Korea between $1 billion and $2 billion for the nuclear reactor. Iran and North Korea have been strategic allies for many years. Iranian scientists have reportedly participated in North Korea’s nuclear tests. Therefore, Iranian scientists have a great deal of knowledge on how to make nuclear weapons.

The experts believe that Iran’s ICBM capability and their proximity to nuclear weapons necessitate that “Iran be regarded as a nuclear missile state — and as a menace to the entire world — right now.” The experts strongly recommend the following: “Congress and the Obama administration should give high priority to passage of the Critical Infrastructure Protection Act and the SHIELD Act, which will protect the national electric grid and other critical infrastructures from EMP attack. Holes in the National Missile Defense need to be patched, and the U.S. nuclear deterrent modernized.” In fact, it is very alarming that these steps have not been taken much earlier since there are many nations that are capable of conducting an EMP attack, such as Russia, China, and North Korea as well as some day Iran or other radical Islamic regimes.

Conclusion

This writer believes that the Iranian accord is similar to the Munich agreement of 1938. He agrees with the criticisms of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and other Republicans in Congress regarding the deal. He believes that the Iran nuke deal is a capitulation on the part of the United States with that terrorist regime that is destabilizing the Middle East. There are indeed many similarities between the Iranian nuclear agreement and the one reached by British Prime Minister Neville Chamberlain and Adolf Hitler in Munich in 1938.

The Munich agreement allowed the Nazi leader to keep the Sudetenland from Czechoslovakia by promising no further aggression in Europe. It is well known by historians that this appeasement was a great mistake as it only increased the desire by Nazi Germany to commit further acts of aggression and annexation of countries in Europe. Winston Churchill denounced in the British Parliament the Munich agreement by stating the following: “We are in the presence of a disaster of the first magnitude… We have sustained a defeat without a war, the consequences of which will travel far with us along our road…”

Ben Shapiro, author of the bestseller Bullies: How the Left’sCulture of Fear and Intimidation Silences America, explained the following: “The West’s appeasement of Iran is significantly worse than the appeasement of Hitler in 1938 for a variety of reasons… Iran has made clear its desire to wipe Israel off the map. Its current leader, supposedly moderate, Hassan Rouhani, has refused to acknowledge the Holocaust as historically accurate, and participated in a rally calling for Israel’s destruction, and according to Iranian reports stated, ‘The Zionist regime is a wound that has sat on the body of the Muslim world for years and needs to be removed’.”

Shapiro explained that in 1938 Great Britain was dealing from a position of military weakness with Nazi Germany. Today, however, it is just the opposite. The United States currently deals from a position of strength and chooses weakness. He believes that Israel is on its own. Obama’s deal with Iran makes clear that if Israel attacks Iran, it does so at the risk of losing American support, even if Iran may retaliate against Israel.

Shapiro explained that Obama´s agenda is anti-Israel and anti-American influence in the Middle East. He believes that such a position makes war a “near-inevitability.” This writer, as well as others foreign-policy experts, knows that appeasement causes war.

Time will tell if President Barack Obama’s nuclear deal with the rogue regime of Iran is an accord that is worse than the one of 1938 in Munich. The leaders of the Islamic Republic of Iran are aware that President Barack Obama has proven to be a terrible negotiator and a weak leader.

Obama’s nuke deal fails to meet the caveat implemented by President Ronald Reagan in dealing with agreements and treaties with the Soviet Union: Trust but Verify. The IAEA have made secret side deals with Iran and had not disclosed them to the United States. One of them will, essentially, allowed Tehran to inspect itself at the Iranian military site of Parchin. How outrageous! How could the U.S. enter into such an accord with a terrorist regime which had cheated in the past and cannot be trusted? IAEA cannot inspect Parchin, a military site which was designed and operated as an explosive testing place where Iranian could detonation nuclear weapon. Moreover Iran is threatening IAEA Director General Yukiya Amano not to disclose to the United States the secret deals regarding the future inspections. That alone should be a sufficient reason to reject the dangerous deal made with Iran! What other secrets agreements were made that seriously threaten the security of the United States and its allies?

Congress and Barack Obama need to remember that a bad deal is worse that no deal. It appears that Congress when it rejects this dangerous nuclear deal through legislation do not have the two third of the votes on both houses needed to overcome the presidential veto. This is very regrettable since Obama’s deal with Iran, instead of preventing war, will make war inevitable in the near future.

Barack Obama and the Democrats in Congress who supported dangerous deal as well as the U.S. European allies will also be responsible for the tens of thousands of future deaths and injuries. In the history of the United States, Congress has successfully assisted in improving agreements negotiated by previous presidents. Almost 200 treaties, including 80 multilateral agreements, have been change by congressional amendments, before they were approved. Barack Obama has made another horrible national security mistake by not allowing Congress to reject the deal and negotiate a better deal with Iran that would protect the national security United States and that of our allies.

This writer believes that the nuclear deal negotiated by the Obama administration is a disaster, especially for our ally Israel. China and Russia, which have very friendly and close relations with Iran, must be, indeed, very pleased. These two nations are now convinced that under Obama the United States is a superpower in retreat.

The U.S. and its European allies as well as Israel should also consider attacking the Islamic Republic of Iran at any time if this radical regime is about to produce nuclear weapons. Additionally, these nations should target the location of the intercontinental ballistic missiles and destroy them as well. The United States should provide Israel with the most modern weapons, including state-of-the-art anti-missile missiles deep bunker busting bombs and join that nation in a surprise attack, if Iran is about to develop nuclear bombs and long-range intercontinental ballistic missiles that can hit the United States. In the meantime, the United States with the help of Israel should do what it can to overthrow Iran’s oppressive mullahs through a popular revolution that should be encouraged. This Islamic radical regime is a cancer in the region and it must be removed.

One thing is certain, none of our enemies are afraid of our weak President Barack Obama. Unfortunately, our allies do not trust the president of the United States and are deeply concerned of how unreliable he is. This is especially true for Israeli leaders who are fully aware that the Iranian regime has said again and again that it wants to wipe out Israel. Obama has continued to severely endanger our national security with this ill-fated nuclear deal with Iran.
