October Surprise? Obama secret Iran deal cut
WND ^ | 10/4/12 | Reza Kahlili

Posted on 10/05/2012 9:20:05 AM PDT by Dave346

Iran could announce a temporary halt to uranium enrichment before next month’s U.S. election in a move to save Barack Obama’s presidency, a source affiliated with high Iranian officials said today.

The source, who remains anonymous for security reasons, said a three-person delegation of the Obama administration led by a woman engaged in secret negotiations yesterday with a representative of Iranian Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei.

The delegation urged the Iranian leader to announce a halt to enrichment, even if temporary, before the Nov. 6 election, promising removal of some sanctions.

The source said the delegation warned that a Mitt Romney presidency would change the U.S. relationship with Iran regarding its nuclear program.

The U.S. representatives reminded the Iranians that President Obama has stood in front of Israel, preventing the Jewish state from attacking Iran over its illicit nuclear arms policy.

The Obama message said: “I didn’t want to impose sanctions on your central bank, but I had no options but to approve it since a Congress majority had approved the decision.”

A unanimous U.S. Senate vote had approved strong sanctions against the Iranian central bank and oil industry, but with a veto threat by the president, the effective date of the implementation of the sanctions was delayed to July 1.

The current regime keeps finding new lows to stoop too !

History has proven that democrat presidents stick their head in the sand and create more of a mess where if we dealt with matters at the time, war could have been adverted. There will be a severe price to be paid for this. Happened with Carter when he threw Shah under the bus, happened with FDR when he ignored the saber rattling from Japan, happened with Kennedy/Johnson with Vietnam.

It doesn’t matter what he does now. Everyone is on to him and his scam mentality. If he suddenly has Iran agree to stop processing, everyone knows it means for FOUR weeks.
Same for the new unemployment rate “below 8%”.

The man is a fraud, and very few will fall for amazing good news 4 weeks before the election. He couldn’t do anything right for four years, then in the last month it’s all coming up roses?

Completely irrelevant to election. Iran has admitted that they have been repeatedly lying to the UN about their enrichment program. Who will believe Achmedanutjob now?

The "Obamaphone" crowd knows nothing about foreign policy, so no more voters there. Those of us news junkies either know Obama is a total fraud, and will vote against him. And the rest? Don't cares, and won't votes.

Again, irrelevant.

Look how the Mullahs caved releasing our hostages the moment Reagan took office. They know the jig is up as well as anybody. Hence, to admit failure to recognize this act as collusion with Obama is to admit the lack of a functioning brain. If they are colluding, why haven't they stopped enriching uranium until now? What makes us think they wouldn't restart after the election should Obama win?

This should be used against the President.

I really think this will all be interpreted quite differently from what Obama expects. I will see it as very similar to the Iran hostage crisis for Jimmy Carter. Fearing Reagan, Iran released the hostages it held for years under Carter. In this case, fearing a Romney presidency, Iran suspends it’s nuclear ambitions which it refused to do for the entire obama presidency? Seems like more of a plus for Romney. Am I wrong?

So you don’t think denying Carter the return of the hostages on his watch demonstrated an ability to discern the subtleties of American politics? I sure do.

Nope,absolutely possible.ABSOLUTELY possible.It's a win win situation.Osama Obama wins by being able to claim...with at least a smidgen of credibility...that his courage and wisdom literally prevented nuclear war in the Middle East and the knuckdragging mullahs win by increasing their chances of getting a US President who's willing to be "flexible",or willing to look the other way,thus leaving Israel on their own.

Of course,within hours of the Electoral College's vote in December Iran would announce..."only kidding".

Iran’s Supreme Leader: Iranians Not to Surrender to Pressures

(Ahlul Bayt News Agency) - Supreme Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyed Ali Khamenei said that sanctions and pressures cannot force the Iranian nation to surrender since Iranians are strong and always overcome problems.

Addressing a group of young Iranian elites here in Tehran on Wednesday, the Leader pointed to the different sanctions and pressures imposed by enemies against the country during the last 33 years since the victory of the Islamic Revolution (1979), and noted that the Iranian nation has always withstood pressures and grown more powerful.

“During the last 33 years, the Islamic Republic of Iran has been faced with a wide range of different political, security, military and economic pressures and sanctions, but the Iranian nation has defused these pressures and even grown more powerful through its resistance,” said the Leader.

Ayatollah Khamenei said that growing pressures against the Iranian nation are mainly aimed at making the nation surrender, “but the Iranian nation has and will never surrender to pressures and this has made the enemy furious.”

The Leader further said that the Iranian nation will overcome the harsh conditions through reliance on its natural wealth and talented people.

Despite the rules enshrined in the Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT) entitling every member state, including Iran, to the right of uranium enrichment, Tehran is now under four rounds of UN Security Council sanctions for turning down West’s calls to give up its right of uranium enrichment.

Tehran has dismissed the West’s demand as politically tainted and illogical, stressing that sanctions and pressures merely consolidate Iranians’ national resolve to continue the path.

Political observers believe that the United States has remained at loggerheads with Iran mainly over the independent and home-grown nature of Tehran’s nuclear technology, which gives the Islamic Republic the potential to turn into a world power and a role model for the other third-world countries.

Iran is on the verge of chaos. The truth is the sanctions, which Obama initially opposed, are working. They are working at least to collapse their economy. Their currency resembles something form the Weimar Republic in the late 1920s. It may only be weeks away from a total collapse. The question is, what happens when there are riots in the streets on Tehran?

They will build it anyway, but they are willing to hold up a bit to get Obama elected.

But unlink Iran’s public promises, Obama’s secret promise to the Egyptian ambassador - that he was and still is a Muslim who supports the Muslim agenda and that world Muslims could be patient with him because once he got Obamacare crammed down our throats he would turn to implementing the Muslim agenda - are being fulfilled before our very eyes. Even when that means seeing our own military and diplomatic personnel offered as sacrifices to the Islamist regimes that Obama has helped to replace our previous allies in the war on terror.

We have a foreign enemy combatant occupying our White House. Plain and simple. It’s about time the public came to the full realization of what that means.

Obama posse’s treachery knows no bounds. If true, this would be treasonous... putting US and “allies” security on the line to hold on to power... but don’t expect the ABC nightly news to tell you this.
They are panting like ravenous wolves to stay in power. They must figure they’ve come this far with a dumbed down american public, why not finish ramming down the rest of the shaft?

Also, note how the Iranian currency has suddenly dumped to half its prior value, and the streets are in unrest.
Could this all be timed to actions of Iran’s central bank, to make it seem like the Bammy sanctions are working, right before our election???

The source, who remains anonymous for security reasons, said a three-person delegation of the Obama administration led by a woman

Metaphysical proof that this "negotiation" is no such thing, but a sham being performed for one purpose, getting Obama reelected. EVERYONE knows that the Moose Limbs don't respect women at all, and that any nation sending a woman as an ambassor or other representative will be viewed as weak and contemptible.

The source said the delegation warned that a Mitt Romney presidency would change the U.S. relationship with Iran regarding its nuclear program.

IOW, Romney won't be so soft on them, so let's try to fool the American public for just a few weeks and then you guys can do what you'd like.

The U.S. representatives reminded the Iranians that President Obama has stood in front of Israel, preventing the Jewish state from attacking Iran over its illicit nuclear arms policy.

The representatives reminded Iran that Obama is their ally and the enemy of Israel (with which, so far as the voting public is concerned, the US is a close ally). So, throw an ally of the American people and nation under the bus, just to get reelected.

The Obama message said: “I didn’t want to impose sanctions on your central bank, but I had no options but to approve it since a Congress majority had approved the decision.”

"See, I REALLY am your ally, but the JOOOOOOOS forced me to look bad to you. Help me out here, I'm in my last election and can be more flexible once its over (just ask the Russians)."

I simply cannot wait to be rid of this traitorous America-hater and his odious fellow travelers and minions. November 6 and January 20 cannot come soon enough. FUBO!

"ridiculous"

If that is not referring to what Obama is doing, but to the creditability of the article's claim:

"According to Peter Schweizer, the author of the best-selling book 'Reagan's War', Jimmy Carter sought the assistance of the Soviet Union to undermine the 1976 reelection bid of Gerald Ford, as well as Ronald Reagan's 1980 Presidential campaign. These allegations are based upon accounts provided by former Soviet Ambassador Anatoly Dobrynin and former First Deputy Foreign Minister Georgii Kornienko.

"It is reported that former Soviet Ambassador Averell Harriman met with Kornienko in September of 1976 on behalf of (then candidate) Carter and "gave assurances that if elected president, he (Carter) would take steps toward the rapid conclusion and signing of the SALT II Treaty, and would be ready to continue negotiations on an agreement on substantial reductions in strategic weapons".

"Schweizer describes how Carter, during his 1980 reelection campaign, "dispatched [pro-Soviet industrialist] Armand Hammer to the Soviet Embassy for a secret meeting with Ambassador Dobrynin to ask for Soviet help" with issues which would assist him in being reelected, such as Jewish emigration, and promised the Soviets that their help would not be forgotten.

"In 1984, (former President) Carter is said to have visited Dobrynin personally, seeking assistance in improving the election prospects of his former Vice President Walter Mondale, and warning the Ambassador that if Reagan was reelected, no arms agreements would ever be reached between the U.S. and the USSR."

"Jimmy Carter's Nobel Legacy"
Edward Daley, 03/10/03

The link is now showing "The web site that you are trying to reach is currently unavailable. Please try again later." The book cited in Peter Swhweizer's "REAGAN'S WAR." is a most read for Reagan or Cold War history.

If you see the claim as all too credible, the excerpted article and the book cited demonstrate how evil both Carter & Barack are.
