    Speaking to fellow supporters of the Iran nuclear deal outside his Long Beach, Calif. office last week, Rep. Alan Lowenthal (D-Calif.) said President Obama “didn’t deserve” the Nobel Peace Prize when he was first elected, but he “deserves it” now for the Iran nuclear deal. “This is a very complex world we live in. I’m just so grateful that we’re moving towards diplomacy and peaceful resolution of conflict, and the ability to have the most effective non-proliferation nuclear treaty with inspections,” Lowenthal told 200 activists on what they billed as a “No War With Iran Day of Action.” …

    Former U.S. Vice President Dick Cheney and his daughter Liz are blasting the nuclear deal between Iran and the six world powers, likening it to the Munich agreement signed in and which paved the way to World War II. The harsh criticism of the deal came in a joint op-ed the two wrote for The Wall Street Journal on Friday. The two write that “despite the explosive spread of terrorist ideology and organizations, the establishment of an Islamic State caliphate in the heart of the Middle East, the proliferation of nuclear weapons, and increasing threats from Iran, China, North Korea...

    The more one knows about the Iran Deal, the more obvious it becomes that it is not a deal so much as it is a fraud. According to the Merriam-Webster dictionary, the definition of a fraud is “something that is meant to look like the real thing in order to trick people.” That precisely describes the Iran Deal. Virtually every claim made for it is either not true or insignificant. There are no “anytime, anywhere” inspections, as Americans were promised during the negotiations.No American or Canadian inspectors will be allowed into Iran.The agreement obligates all the parties, including the...

    Secretary of State John Kerry Secretary of State John Kerry once again signed the United Nations Arms Treaty on Wednesday, a move that supporters say will help stop weapons from getting into the hands of criminals and terrorists worldwide but critics contend is is a backdoor assault on law-abiding gun owners. The treaty would require nations to conduct a detailed registration of all guns. The issue is dead on arrival in the U.S. Senate, but one of the leading experts on guns says even if the agreement is only ratified in other countries, it can still work to erode...

    Iran appears to have built an extension to part of its Parchin military site since May, the UN nuclear watchdog said in a report obtained by the Reuters news agency on Thursday. A resolution of the International Atomic Energy Agency's (IAEA) Parchin file, which includes a demand for fresh IAEA access to the site, is a symbolically important issue that could help make or break Tehran's July 14 nuclear deal with six world powers. The confidential IAEA report obtained by the news agency says, "Since (our) previous report (in May), at a particular location at the Parchin site, the agency...

He has just signed an anti-gun treaty with the United Nations that the U.S. Senate has already said it is against. The treaty Kerry signed without authorization from the Senate would create an un-Constitutional registry of all US gun buyers and would lead to the UN controlling American’s gun rights.

    The Iran deal has potential, both because of public opinion and the way the administration is positioning itself, to hurt Democrats in much the same way that the Iranian hostage crisis did in 1980 and 1981. Should New York Senator Chuck Schumer succeed in killing the deal, he will be saving the Democrats from what appears to be a grave political mistake. President Obama has branded opponents of the deal as either ideological extremists or ignorant. In his speech at American University, he compared the agreement’s opponents with Iranian extremists chanting “death to America.” He pointed out that most of...

    In 2011, well before the multilateral P5+1 "negotiations" with Iran began in February of 2013, Obama put Senator John Kerry in charge of  "secret bilateral negotiations on the [Iranian] nuclear dossier." Kerry then advised Iranian officials that "we are definitely and sincerely willing, and we can resolve the issues" -- including Uranium enrichment and the Possible Military Dimensions (PMDs) of Iran's nuclear program. Iran's nuclear weaponization and missile development programs have been substantially ignored ever since. Ernest Moniz, who was to become Kerry's technical adviser, was brought into the P5+1 negotiations at the specific request of the Iranian official -- Moniz' former MIT classmate -- who was to be his counterpart. The...

The mullahs are already scooping up billions in unfrozen assets and new commerce, and they haven’t even gotten the big payday yet. Obama’s promises of “anytime, anywhere” inspections have melted away as Tehran denies access and the president accepts their comical offer to provide their own nuclear-site samples for examination. Senator John Barasso (R., Wyo.), a medical doctor, drew the apt analogy: It’s like letting a suspect NFL player provide what he says is his own urine sample and then pronouncing him PED-free.#...

    Obama's solution? To let Iran have legitimate nuclear bombs in a few years, along with intercontinental ballistic missiles to deliver them to the U.S. -- or perhaps from America's soft underbelly, South America, where Iran has been acquiring uranium and establishing bases for years. Or perhaps launched from submarines off America's coast, which would make the identity of the attacker unknowable and a response therefore impossible. Incredibly, America's politicians do not even seem to seem to be concerned about that.

Recent disclosures by Iran indicate that the recently inked nuclear accord includes a series of side deals on critical inspections regimes that are neither public nor subject to review by the United States.

  • When it comes to Islam, Sunni or Shia, Obama Chooses the Terrorists

    Summary: Like his support for the Sunni Muslim Brotherhood terrorists across the region, the facts of the Iran deal with Shiite terror regime in Tehran point to a deliberate plan of allying the United States with the worst of Islamic terrorists. Obama’s nuclear “deal” with Iran has been compared to British Prime Minister Neville Chamberlain’s appeasement of Hitler. For those less familiar with the history of the Second World War, Chamberlain’s Munich deal was a betrayal of Czechoslovakia. Students of World War II know, however, that Chamberlain ultimately led the early British war effort against the Nazis. Chamberlain may have...

    Secretary of State John Kerry says he does not know whether the Iranian regime truly wants to destroy America, but views its policy as one “of opposition to us and of great enmity.” When Kerry appeared before the House Foreign Affairs Committee on Tuesday to defend the Iran nuclear agreement, Rep. Ted Poe (R-Texas) asked him about Tehran’s policy in the light of the “death to America” chants common at events presided over by supreme leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei and President Hasan Rouhani. […] “Do you think it’s their policy to destroy us?” (Poe said.) “I think they have a...

    Want to buy a used nuclear Armageddon from Hanoi John? It’s hard to imagine a worse salesman for the Iran deal than John Kerry. Kerry couldn’t sell himself to Americans as a presidential candidate. Now he has to sell a nuclear Armageddon to Americans. National security was Kerry’s undoing during his presidential campaign. He had shot American soldiers in the back during Vietnam to build a base for his own political future. He had eagerly pandered to Marxist-Leninist terrorists who massacred native peoples and burned their churches. He had been for the Iraq War before he was against it and...

    Tuesday at the House Foreign Affairs Committee hearing on the Iran nuclear agreement, Secretary of State John Kerry admitted he does not have “access” to the secret deal between the IAEA and Iran on the enforcement of inspections and has only been briefed on the agreements when pressed by Rep. Ted Poe (R-TX). Partial transcript: KERRY: “No I haven’t seen it. I’ve been briefed on it. And –” POE: “–But you haven’t read it, you haven’t seen it.” KERRY: “No because it’s in the possession of the IAEA.” POE: “Are you going to read it?” KERRY: “We don’t have access...

    Wednesday on Newsmax TV’s “The Steve Malzberg Show,” actor, author and former White House speechwriter Ben Stein said President Barack Obama and Secretary of State John Kerry have “opened the door to more harm of Jewish people in the history of the world” with the Iran nuclear deal, which he called a “disgrace to humanity.”

    Secretary of State John Kerry conceded on Tuesday that Iran “may” use weapons that it will acquire as a result of restrictions being lifted under the nuclear agreement to kill Americans and Israelis. Appearing before the House Foreign Affairs Committee to defend the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), Kerry was asked about recent belligerent statements by Iranian leaders. […] (Rep. Mo) Brooks … asked the secretary of state whether he believes that the Iranians “will use the conventional weapons made available by the Iran nuclear treaty to kill Americans or Israelis?” “Well, they may, they may,” Kerry said, adding...

    The White House did not pursue the nuclear agreement with Iran as an international treaty, because getting U.S. Senate advice and consent for a treaty has “become physically impossible,” Secretary of State John Kerry told lawmakers on Tuesday. At a House Foreign Affairs Committee hearing on the agreement known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), Kerry was asked about the administration’s approach of seeking a political accord between governments rather than an international treaty. Rep. Reid Ribble (R-Wisc.) recalled Kerry saying earlier in the hearing that if Congress rejects the JCPOA, other countries will in the future not...
  • Leaked Copy Of Obama’s Iran Deal Goes Public… Paragraph 36 Will Blow Your Mind

    Last Tuesday, a 159-page PDF of President Barack Obama’s Iran nuclear deal was leaked online. Paragraph 36 was the most shocking of the agreement — a part the president would probably prefer hadn’t become public, as it demonstrated just how much of a joke the pact actually was. According to the deal’s 36th paragraph, any party — Iran or any future U.S. president — can essentially end the Iran nuclear deal with 35 days notice. Iran can claim that any one of the P5+1 nations is “not meeting its commitments” under the deal. That will then set off a 35-day

    The United States risks a collapse in its future negotiating credibility if it walks away from the Iranian nuclear deal, according to US secretary of state John Kerry, who argues Congress now has little choice but to back the plan. In his starkest warning yet to critics on Capitol Hill, Kerry also predicted the international coalition behind economic sanctions would quickly collapse and leave Iran even closer to developing an atomic bomb if the US sought to renegotiate terms. One hundred senators and 535 members of the House of Representatives will vote in September on whether to oppose the deal...

    **SNIP** Zarif is the current minister of foreign affairs in the Rouhani administration and has held various significant diplomatic and cabinet posts since the 1990s. He was Kerry’s chief counterpart in the nuclear deal negotiations. Secretary Kerry and Zarif first met over a decade ago at a dinner party hosted by George Soros at his Manhattan penthouse. What a surprise. I have to say, connecting the dots gets more and more frightening. But it gets even worse. Guess who was the best man at the 2009 wedding between Kerry’s daughter Vanessa and Behrouz Vala Nahed? Javad Zarif’s son.
