Exposed: Obama’s Secret Side Deals With Iran

dIn A move that has raged the GOP, President Obama has made secret side deals with Iran.

According to the Associated Press, a side deal was made between Iran and the U.N.’s International Atomic Energy Agency allowing Iran to use its own inspectors to inspect a location accused of building nuclear arms. It is usually the U.N. who inspects such sites, so why not this site?

“International inspections should be done by international inspectors,” stated Ed Royce, House Foreign Affairs Committee Chairman. “Period.”

It was a document seen by AP that brought this issue to light and that has the Republican lawmakers angered. Already very critical of Obama’s Iran Deal because it is basically built recklessly on trust alone with the Iranians, the GOP finds this new development imprudent.

It was the Obama Administration who insisted it would depend on reliable scrutiny over the Iranian sites in question. Not only the GOP but many of us want to know why, then, are the Iranians inspecting their own sites?

House Speaker John Boehner stated, “President Obama boasts his deal includes ‘unprecedented verification.’ He claims it’s not built on trust. But the administration’s briefings on these side deals have been totally insufficient—and it still isn’t clear whether anyone at the White House has seen the final documents.”

“Worse,” according to ESHRAF, “Obama didn’t even reveal the existence of these secret side deals to Congress when he transmitted the nuclear accord to Capitol Hill. The agreements were uncovered, completely by chance, by two members of Congress — Rep. Mike Pompeo (R-Kan.) and Sen. Tom Cotton (R-Ark.) — who were in Vienna meeting with the U.N.-related agency.”

It was President Obama who signed into law The Iran Nuclear Agreement Review Act. This law unequivocally states that all materials and ‘annexes’ associated with the Iran Deal must be transmitted by the president to Congress. Well, it seems that the president has broken the law, one in which he wrote.

All of this aside, House Democratic leader Nancy Pelosi is not sure what the disclosure has to do with the Iran Deal because, according to her, the disclosure relates to past military efforts and not any nuclear efforts moving ahead.

Pelosi stated, “I truly believe in this agreement.” If there were a vote today “the president’s veto would be sustained. But I feel very confident about it…We will sustain the veto.”

Before voting on the Iran deal Congress should be adamant about seeing the side deals. How many of us would buy a piece of land site unseen and just take the sellers word for it that the land was fertile, especially when that seller has a bit of a track-record for embellishments?

It will take a two-thirds vote in both houses to override the president’s veto, 45 House Democrats and 13 Senate Democrats.

Pompeo stated, “My mission in the next 45 days is to convince 45 House Democrats to override the veto. It’s a long climb, but this is important.”

Iran is getting ready to come into $150 billion dollars in sanctions relief. These relief moneys are based on negotiated agreements between Iran and IAEA that not one U.S. representative has viewed.

Is this wise, Mr. President? You may very well be putting our national security at great risk. “We need to see these documents in order to evaluate whether verification is ample to make such a big concession to the Iranians,” Pompeo said.

“No member of Congress should be asked to vote on an agreement of this historic importance absent knowing what the terms of the verification process are.”

A Marine’s Epic Letter Blasts Michele Obama

imageedit_5_6572506416Michele Obama was invited by Tuskegee University to give the commencement speech this summer. With racial tensions high many believed her speech to be forceful yet fitting while others believed it to be nothing more than igniting a fire into an inferno.

The Washington Post, for example, stated that “Obama gave voice to the frustrations and hopes of African-Americans in this country. Her words were powerful and forcefully delivered without apology. Coming after what we have witnessed in Ferguson and Baltimore, Obama’s speech at the historically black institution has added resonance.”

ClashDaily, on the other hand, wrote, “Michele Obama just couldn’t resist the opportunity to throw some kerosene on the racial tension fire, but not everyone is so willing to simply let her get away with it.”

The full speech is below for you to watch and decide for yourself what you think about it. But, before you do, read a letter from Marine Soldier Mike Shepard who is a writer for the DC Gazette:

Mrs. Obama

It sickens me that I have to take time to write you this letter. I am a Marine who doesn’t recognize color because every color has lived and died for you. You live in a free country to blame your life on the color of another man’s skin. All colors have given their lives for an educated woman to have the freedom to be so ignorant. I don’t blame black people for the ignorance that comes from your mouth. I love all colors because I love all that God creates. I don’t have to like you to love you because we can’t always like the ones we love. Just because I don’t like you today doesn’t mean I can’t like you tomorrow. I don’t like you or your husband today because of what you’re doing to this country. Isn’t it funny how the truth always reveals itself in time. You and your husband never showed this side of yourselves in 2008 before he was elected.

You both live better than 99% of the people in this world because of this country. You said that you are for the first time proud to be an American. Well, I will tell you that most of us are ashamed of you. You and your husband have become millionaires off the people of this country, but demonstrate very little appreciation for all that we give. White, black, brown or indifferent millions have fought and died for you to have the freedom to say the ignorant things you say. You are educated, but clearly have very little common sense. You blame past generations of Americans for the troubles of a few. Stop blaming white people for your misery and take a look at yourself in the mirror. We are responsible for our own happiness and misery. The KKK is ignorance wrapped in a sheet while the Black panthers are raised on ignorance and hate. No different from the teaching of Islam thinking their race is better than all other men. God is love and creates every color to include everyone’s skin. To truly love God is to love all that He loves. For that I love you and pray that we all start taking responsibility for our own damned sins.

Martin Luther King had a dream that we would all live in the promise land. He is not remembered for being black. He is remembered for the love, and character he had within his heart. If you don’t like this country get on that plane and never come back. I will stay here and love all Americans, regardless of skin. I will love the beauty of what God created and stand tall with my American friends. Not because of their color but for the character and love they carry within. This country doesn’t owe you anymore than it owes me. So many have thanked me for my service and I will always be grateful. I pray that one day you and your husband might cause me to be grateful for yours.

You will never be remembered as the First Lady of Color but soon forgotten after you leave the White House. You nor your husband shall ever divide us. I wish you no harm, but pray you will take your troubles to a land you no longer hate. Hate shall come and go but His love shall last forever.

If you wish to find me I am now a writer for the DC Gazette. Also on Twitter @mshep08_mike …God bless you and Semper Fi

Rationing Drugs For Sick Veterans. Did The VA REALLY Plan To Do That?

d

The Department of Veteran Affairs has known since January that the cost of medications was rising and that it would cause a tremendous financial loss. They have even discussed rationing expensive drugs “after asking Congress for $500 million to pay for the same drugs,” according to Washington Examiner.

VA officials have given Congress the notion that hospitals throughout the nation would be closed unless ‘swift action’ was taken.

Hepatitis C, one of the most expensive medications given to veterans, is one of the drugs the VA is allegedly planning to withhold from some veterans. The Hep C drug can be as much as $1,000 a pill, a price the pharmaceutical company, Gilead, believes to be fair considering what it cost for them to develop the treatments, Sovldi and Harvoni.

Hep C is caused by the HCV virus:

  • It is a contagious liver disease caused by the hepatitis C virus (HCV).
  • It can be a mild illness lasting a few weeks in up to 15% of individuals. • It can lead to chronic (lifelong) illness that can cause liver damage, cirrhosis (scarring of the liver), and liver cancer.
  • It is spread mainly through contact with the blood of an infected person.

Commendably, Gilead has already negotiated discounts for the VA, as much as 40%.

The VA, however, is still in need of funding, for Hep C drugs, and more but Congress doesn’t seem happy with the tactic the VA is using to go about getting this funding.

Republican Kansas Sen. Jerry Moran told the Examiner,  “It’s another instance of the VA telling Congress, the Veterans committee and others about how, if we give them money, it would be spent, and then it’s a different plan once we give them the money.”

Moran went on to say, “If the VA tells us there’s a crisis and tells us to respond to that crisis, I would expect them to use the money as they told us they would. A question would be, then how are you spending the money if you are refusing to treat all the veterans that are suffering from this condition?”

Deputy VA secretary Sloan Gibson stated to the House Veterans’ affairs Committee that they “don’t expect to do any rationing of care with Hepatitis C.”

An internal plan, however, had already been made by the VA to do just that, according to the Examiner.

VA Employees had apparently warned Gibson of the possible financial issues in January but Gibson denies these allegations.

Chief VA financial officer, Kathleen Turco, according to Examiner, “dismissed those concerns on Jan. 21. Six months later, VA officials stood before Congress and claimed they were essentially blindsided by the largest budget shortfall in the agency’s history.”

The VA, once again, finds itself in the spot light and has some explaining to do. Rationing needed medications for our veterans…Really? VA, did you really plan to do that?

After Chattanooga Shootings And New Al Qaeda Threats, Navy To Arm Sailors At Reserve Centers

It was Thursday, July 16, when the gunman, 24 year-old Mohammad Youssuf Abdulazeez, opened fire killing 4 U.S. Marines and 1 Navy sailor and wounded 2 others in Chattanooga, Tennessee. Abdulazeez first opened fire at the military recruiting center and then moved on some 7 miles away to a U.S. Navy facility before he was killed by police. Now, Navy reserve centres throughout the U.S. will be arming its sailors, according to a statement made by officials.

d

“The threat posed to military forces in the United States by homegrown violent extremists has increased.”

The FBI have warned that new threats are being made against our military and their families as Al Qaeda praises the Chattanooga killer for what is considered a job well done.

Although the consent to have trained sailors to protect the facilities is now in affect, the actual date the sailors will begin has not yet been determined. For all military, their families and the grieving families of the victims, the start date can’t be soon enough.

How Did ISIS Come to Be and Just WHOM Do We Aim The Finger?

ISIS 11

October 30, 2014

The terrorist group ISIS is located in Iraq and sporadically throughout parts of the globe. ISIS Terrorists has many World Leaders scrambling to get a handle on them while their citizens fearfully wait and wonder how and when they will strike next. Others, however, are trying to figure out just how they came to be, and who to blame for them.

It would be opportune for the present Iranian regime to first put blame for ISIS on Iran but if you look closely at the facts you will see a very different story unfold.

If a finger must be aimed then it may need to be aimed right back at us, the United States of America. Western Europe, and their allies also have fingers pointed at them as well. This may not be a popular stance for some Americans but the facts speak for themselves.

Before the U.S.’s disastrous incursion and occupation, which was markedly supported by Britain, there was no al-Qaeda or allied Salafi fanatic existence in Iraq under the regime of Saddam Hussein. Once the U.S. invaded, the extremists took control of most of the northern and western parts of Iraq, despite claims to the contrary by the Bush administration.

HusainHussein’s regime prevented Al Qaeda from operating out of Iraq, according to a Senate Intelligence report. “Iraq had also been supported by the West before the 1991 Gulf War as a counterbalance against the revolutionary Islamic Republic during the Iran-Iraq War,” reports The Diplomat. “The U.S.-led invasion changed all of that.”

Once Hussein’s rule was taken down the country was destabilized. Both the Armed forces and civil service were eliminated and “replaced by partisans of sectarian Shiite parties and factions, some of which were closely allied to Iran,” reports The Progressive. “Sunni extremists, believing Iraqi Shias had betrayed their country to Persians and Westerners, began targeting Shia civilian neighborhoods with terrorist attacks. The Iraqi regime and allied militia then began systematically kidnapping and murdering thousands of Sunni men. The so-called ‘sectarian’ conflict, then, has been a direct consequence of U.S. policy.”

Al-Qaeda, ISIS’s forerunner, was established in 2004. But when the U.S. stepped in to help institute Iraq’s new government it constantly supported Iraqi’s Prime Minister Maliki’s unending persecution of civil protesters and dissidents. The Sunnis became alienated and discriminated against both in government and the armed forces.

Protesters were slaughtered and journalists were either assassinated or imprisoned. Thousands were tortured and/or detained, without trial, for years. The Sunnis, faced with uncontrolled discrimination, looked upon the Maliki government with mounting disdain as the rest of the world looked on understanding it to be one of the most corrupt regimes in the world.

ISIS-3Armed with weapons made by the U.S., in 2013 Maliki’s troops ravaged Sunni protest camps. It was too late by the time the U.S. and Western Europe decided to take Maliki seriously and end his regime. The groundwork was already in place for a strong ISIS-led Sunni uprising in Western Iraq and became the latest offspring of al-Qaeda-fashioned radicals.

In a move that seemed to indicate the Maliki regime was not worth dying for, the Iraqi army failed to fight.

Let’ go back to 2011 for a moment and see what was happening in Syria during that same time frame. Peaceful pro-democracy protests began to be silenced by the Assad regime. It wasn’t long before the civilians transformed themselves into an armed rebellion.

The reason for this rebellion was that “In the early stages of the war, Saudi Arabia, Qatar and Turkey began funneling arms to opposition forces, seeing an opportunity to destabilize a key ally of Iran and Hezbollah, their geopolitical foes,” reports The Diplomat. “As the civil war deepened, extremist groups joined the fight against what they saw as an odious secular regime. The also became the beneficiaries of large amounts of arms and funding from Americas regional allies.”

So, Turkey, Qatar and Saudi Arabia and the U.S. knowingly financed extremist groups, such as al-Qaeda’s affiliate group, Jabhat al-Nusra who became one of the most efficient insurgent groups going up against Syria’s regime. Many of the al-Nusra rebels began fusing with ISIS.

In short, it is the belief of many that the $25 billion spent in American taxpayer money training and arming the Maliki regime in Baghdad has a direct correlation to the rise of the ISIS terrorists.

ISIS has grown exponentially since its seemingly meager beginnings, not only in numbers but in wealth as well.

imageedit_6_4681803245

CIA estimates that the ISIS group is 20,000-50,000 strong and growing. As they take over cities and territories they focus on the prisons and release as many as possible who are then recruited or killed. In lieu of the fact ISIS are few in comparison to the 250,000 Iraqi troops, not to mention armed police, it shouldn’t be a problem to hold them off, right? Wrong.

The Iraqi army is a mess, at best. Even though they had 40 to 1 odds, the Iraqi troops ran from 800 ISIS rebels. As stated earlier, they did not wish to fight or die for a government they did not believe in so they ran.

Jayson Lyall, a Yale University insurgency expert, said, “It appears that the Iraqi Army is cleaving along sectarian lines…The willingness of Sunni soldiers to fight to retake Mosul appears limited.” What Lyall is saying is that the Sunnis are under a government that oppresses them and they don’t wish to fight each other over it. That being said, the end result is the same and ISIS runs rapid.

ISIS 14

With the lack of opposition, ISIS has been able to not only secure enormous wealth from taking over eastern Syrian oilfields in 2012 but has also acquired income from smuggling raw materials and priceless antiquities from different archeological sites. It is estimated that ISIS’s wealth was around $875 million before the Mosul takeover. After the city was captured and all taken into consideration, money from banks and other supplies, ISIS is estimated to be worth $2 billion.

It would seem this long ago, small group of fed-up individuals has not only surpassed all expectations in growth, but in wealth as well.

We now know how ISIS came to be and just who needs fingers aimed at them for starting the terrorist group, but just who is going to stop them?
