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?

The undercover ban of a baby harvesting operation by Planned Parenthood has been lifted by a Los Angeles Court.What follows is a video released by the Center for Medical Progress that shows the StemExpress CEO joking that they had received whole deceased babies from the Planned Parenthood organization.

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 IN THE WORLD DOES HARRY REID GET RE-ELECTED ‘?

 Just what is it about Democrat Harry Reid that has so many American’s questioning how and why he continues to get re-elected?

imageedit_2_6844081591

‘ Harry Reid Well Done Me ‘

Many might attack Reid because they may simply believe he is too old to competently hold his office believing that his decisions are slightly off or unethical at best. Others may not agree with his alleged hypocrisy and shady tactics. Yet, others believe it to be a combination of those two factors and his political stance that sends them over the edge. Whatever the complaint, Harry Reid seems to be stepping on toes and leaving voters screaming for term limits.

Reid, 74, soon to be 75 on December 2, is the Senate Majority Leader and has been since 2006. He was first elected to office in 1987. That means that Harry Reid has been in office for 27 years leading some to believe he has become numb to America’s plight. Or, do all of those years of experience give Reid an upper hand in dealing with the pressing issues of today’s America? If you ask Mary Landreiu (D-LA) she would probably say, yes. Or, would she?

“I think Harry Reid gets beat up more than he deserves. I am going to wait to see what the leadership looks like. We’ll see.” These were Landreiu’s words on whether or not she would vote for Reid. “I’m not saying yes and I’m not saying no.” 


Interesting since Landrieu stated in April that she would absolutely vote for Reid.

Reid has struggled with popularity and a recent poll shows that only 13% of Americans have a positive or ‘somewhat positive’ view of him. That means that twice as many citizens see Reid in an unfavorable light making this the lowest rating since the Nevada Democrat became majority leader.

But why is Reid seen in this negative light? According to Megyn Kelly of Fox News, some of his most highlighted offences are that he stole lemonade stand money that a little boy was raising to help his dying father. She stated that he, allegedly, beat his wife for ten years or so. Whether that is the truth or not has yet to be seen but the damage, in the public eye, has already been done.

Reid 2What has been evident and true concerning the tactics of Harry Reid is that he will seem to do anything to keep control of the Democratic seat, whether he is in it or not, by making outlandish remarks and by flip-flopping on many issues.

Reid has made ridiculous statements concerning Obamacare and has, according to The Blaze, “asserted that the stories of Americans who lost coverage, or had to pay more, or had to find new doctors under the Affordable Care Act are all lies.” This, of course, isn’t true in the slightest as many Americans have not only lost their doctors but have also had to endure higher costs as well.

Reid even went so far as to call all the ads concerning Obamacare lies and those who posted the ads liars. It wasn’t until later that same day that he returned to the Senate floor and said, “I can’t say that every one of the Koch brothers’ ads are a lie, but I’ll say this…the vast, vast majority of them are.” Really?


His statements on Obamacare were wrong but the fact that Harry Reid made Judicial Watch’s “Ten Most Wanted Corrupt Politicians” list…again, is remarkable.

“The Judicial Watch list is alphabetical, so there is no way to tell whether he’s the most corrupt or 10th. But, Nevadans know that Reid routinely makes headlines for alleged “influence peddling,” securing tens of millions of dollars worth of deals for his sons and their clients, including a Chinese green energy group; securing $21.5 million to build a bridge over the Colorado River from a gambling town in Nevada to a town in Arizona where Harry owns 160 acres of undeveloped land; misappropriation of campaign funds; and an alleged $600,000 bribery deal and more,” according to The Blaze.

Reid doesn’t spend time defending himself against accusations of wrongdoing nor does he explain why his positions seem to change from vigorously being against an issue to later being all for it.

On illegal immigration, in 1993, Harry said: “if making it easy to be an illegal alien isn’t enough, how about offering a reward for being an illegal immigrant? No sane country would do that, right? Guess again. If you break our laws by entering this country without permission and give birth to a child, we reward that child with U.S. citizenship and guarantee access to all public and social services this country provides. Now that’s a lot of services. Is it any wonder that two-thirds of the babies born at taxpayer expense at county run hospitals in Los Angeles are born to illegal alien mothers?”

ReidReid seemed adamant about not allowing this type of abuse of our resources for illegal immigrants. But now hefavors comprehensive immigration reform which rewards illegal aliens every avenue to citizenship. He supports amnesty. He is all for the Dream Act, allowing kids of illegal aliens to obtain in-state tuition at colleges and universities. He voted “no” on restrictive welfare for illegal aliens.

What happened Harry Reid? Didn’t you say it was “insane” to promote this kind of welfare environment?

The Federal Reserve is another area that Reid has flip-flopped on. In 1995, he stated, “I have sponsored legislation ever year that would call for an audit of the Federal Reserve system. I offer that amendment every year, every year it gets nowhere.”

Something changed, however, and Reid refused to even mention the Federal Reserve Transparency Act for a vote. In 1995 the Federal debt was $4.9 trillion and today it is over$17.3 trillion. The fact that Reid doesn’t seem to be interested in a vote to audit the Federal Reserve leaves Americans wondering why.

It isn’t just the casual American citizen who is backing away from Reid, fellow constituents are as well.

“Harry Reid and Mich McConnell have given us the most dysfunctional government in a generation and they need to step aside,” stated Rick Weiland (D-SD). “They both failed the American people and it’s time for new leadership.”

Democrat Mark Warner of Virginia also said that “Both parties might be better off with new leadership.”

There are some in Washington who “have talked about a ‘do-nothing Congress’ –and that could certainly be said of the Senate,” According to CBN News. “Critics say the reason for that pretty much comes down to Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid.”

“Washington political observers like John Hart, editor-in-chief of Opportunity Lives, say the Nevada Democrat’s near total clampdown on votes and amendments is historic. He [Reid] has blocked senators from offering amendments more than all other majority leaders in our history times two.”

reid4It is by limiting these amendments and votes that Reid keeps himself and other demarcates from being held accountable during the campaign “for votes they never had to cast.”

Nothing good can come of this type of deception. For example, there have been only 14 votes on Republican amendments since July of 2013. Those votes were only 14 of hundreds upon hundreds filed!

“By blocking almost every senator on almost every issue…Reid takes away the basic right to representation…This is about the rights and privileges of every single American citizen.”

There are many reasons for Americans to be disillusioned with politics and even more, it seems, with politician Harry Reid. There is much written on Reid about his wrongdoings and shady character but I have yet to come across anything containing rebuttal to his accusers. Perhaps, in time, he will answer for the allegations against him.

In the meantime, how does Harry Reid continue to be re-elected?
