Obama Does NOT Want These Stunning Words Iran Just Said To Get Out…

Iran leaders state their plan is to overthrow Israel and liberate Palestine, even in the midst of a crucial vote on a nuclear arms deal with the United States and the global community.

Brigadier General Mohsen Kazzemeini, a senior commander of the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps and a leading commander in the Tehran province, said on Sept. 2 that Iran will not stop building up its military. In fact, Kazzemeini told operating units in Tharallah Drills at the Iranian capital that it will continue until Israel no longer exists, he said.

“They (the US and the Zionists) should know that the Islamic Revolution will continue enhancing its preparedness until it overthrows Israel and liberates Palestine,” Kazzemeini said.

The comments were made in light of several revelations about Iran’s military build up. There are at least 250,000 volunteer forces, called Iranian Basiji, that are organized into 250 battalions. Those fighting forces began drills this week in Tehran to practice warfare against what they called “security threats.”

Another one of Iran’s military leaders has also boldly stated that the U.S. will not be able to control Iran in any way.

“The US officials make boastful remarks and imagine that they can impose anything on the Iranian nation because they lack a proper knowledge of the Iranian nation,” said Iranian Defense Minister Brigadier General Hossein Dehqan on Sept. 3

Congressional members opposed to the Iran deal, headed by Republicans, took a blow on Sept. 3 as President Barack Obama gained 34 Senate votes required to overturn a presidential veto. That is significant because the GOP has legislation, including an amendment to the negotiated agreement with the Islamic country, which would make the deal with Iran moot. The president said he is prepared to veto legislation.

Republican leaders, although disappointed with the decision of Sen. Barbara Mikulski (D-Md.) to become that 34th vote, said the fight to end the deal isn’t over. Cory Fritz, a spokesman for House Speaker John Boehner, said getting the crucial vote to allow the deal to go through was disappointing, but also said “this deal is far from being implemented.” It is no secret the American people do not want the deal, Fritz said.

 “Forcing a bad deal over the objections of the American people and a majority in Congress is no win for President Obama,” he said.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said representatives on both sides of the aisle will have to work together to deal with the negative outcomes of the deal for years to come.

“While the President may be able to sustain a veto with the tepid, restricted and partisan support of one third of one house of Congress over Americans’ bipartisan opposition, it will require a bipartisan Congress to strengthen our defenses in the Persian Gulf and to stand up to the inevitable Iranian violations of the agreement that will need to be addressed after he has left office,” McConnell said.

 McConnell is convinced that ending the deal may have to wait until after the 2016 presidential election.

 “And because it is not a treaty, it can and should be revisited by our next president,” he said.

BULLSEYE: Charlie Daniels Totally Nukes ‘Pushover, Pathetic’ Congress In Awesome Open Letter

Not only can he belt out hit lyrics, but country music superstar Charlie Daniels can also fire off an incredibly hard-hitting letter to Congress — a blistering open letter that could easily serve as Daniels’ entry into rough-and-tumble politics, should he ever choose to switch careers.

Published by CNS News, this missile, uh, missive takes dead aim at a body of lawmakers that Daniels condemns as “milksop, politically correct, scared of their own shadow, pushover, pathetic excuses for public servants who are supposed to be representing a constituency of citizens who have to live with the circumstances of their timid folly.”

The open letter begins with Daniels’ unabashed admiration for members of the Continental Congress and other proud and patriotic figures in American history, including presidents and military leaders.

The history of this nation is written in the blood and courage of men who stood in the face of overwhelming odds – politicians, soldiers, statesmen and ordinary citizens who sought to do the right thing regardless of the cost or the consequences.

Then the popular singer, guitarist and fiddler whose biggest hit is “The Devil Went Down to Georgia” launches a scathing assault on the current crop of Capitol Hill lawmakers for allowing Barack Obama and his allies to make “a deal with the devil.”

“Be honest with yourselves a minute,” writes Daniels. “Go into the bathroom and look in the mirror and ask the person you see this question: ‘Do I really believe that Iran will not use the money we’re releasing to them to finance terrorists to kill Americans, and, when, not if, but when, the Iranians develop their nuclear device, will they really use it against America and Israel?’”

The music superstar goes on to pound lawmakers mercilessly for not doing anything meaningful about border security, for allowing the federal budget to balloon and the national debt to explode, and for letting the IRS run amok over the administration’s political opponents.

He goes so far as to accuse federal office holders of shirking their duty and betraying their country, charging, “you’ve sat on your hands while an imperial president has rubbed your noses in the dirt time after time.”

Charlie Daniels’ scorn for members of the modern House and Senate is expressed in no uncertain terms, and without giving the targets of his contemptuous criticism time to catch their breath.

You’re puppets, caricatures, jokes, a gaggle of fading prostitutes for sale to anybody who can do you a political favor.

This isn’t the first time that Daniels has penned an open letter that throws the book at Washington. As Western Journalism reported on June 11th of this year, the 78-year-old music legend struck a chord with many Americans in firing off an open letter to President Obama that called him an “intentional” liar who demonstrates an immature “petulance” in the face of criticism. The iconic singer-songwriter-musician concluded that letter with this ominous line: “Time is running out for you Mr. President and the horrible thing about it is that time is running out for America too.”

Uh-Oh: Lois Lerner Caught Saying 2 Words About Republicans That Could Doom Her

Lois Lerner, the former IRS official at the center of the scandal where the agency allegedly targeted conservative groups, called Republicans “evil and dishonest” with a “hateful message” in emails. The Senate Finance Committee released contents of the emails as part of an Aug. 6 report.

The emails showed that Lerner, who headed up the division processing tax-exempt status applications, and others working in the department, let their personal politics and the Obama administration’s political agenda affect their jobs.

Comments made in emails to friends after Lerner appeared before a House Oversight and Government Reform Committee in 2014 indicated she intended to maintain her 5th Amendment rights.

“Yesterday was a doozy. They called me back to testify on the IRS ‘scandal,’ and I tool (sic) the 5th again because they had been so evil and dishonest in my lawyer’s dealings with them,” Lerner wrote in a March 6, 2014 email. She added: “this is very bad behavior from our elected officials.”

Lerner, who has since retired, also said she was a pawn in Republicans’ attempts to take over the Senate and were using the scandal to gain donations.

“Every time they get some email they see as incriminating, they roil up their base and get lots of contributions and spread their hateful message about how the government is out to get people,” she wrote.

Lerner also apparently doesn’t like Texas because she said it “is just pathetic as far as political attitudes are concerned” and also stated that President Abraham Lincoln would have been better off letting the South secede.

A new piece of information that came out of the emails is that Lerner wanted the IRS IT staff to recover emails wiped from her server to turn over to the committee probing the scandal.

“Why the IRS was unable to retrieve them when my computer crashed, I have no clue — I’m not an IT person,” she wrote.

The Senate report said the IRS had a “dysfunctional culture” resulting from management flaws. That resulted in the mistreatment of conservative political groups applying for tax-exempt status. Lerner bears much of the responsibility, according to the report, because she failed to inform supervisors about long processing delays.

One of the problems was that the IRS didn’t audit groups conducting possible improper political activity from 2010 through 2014 because IRS officials were afraid they would be accused of targeting the groups out of “political leanings.” Sensitive taxpayer information was also inappropriately disclosed by IRS employees under the Freedom of Information Act, the report said.

“This bipartisan investigation shows gross mismanagement at the highest levels of the IRS and confirms an unacceptable truth: that the IRS is prone to abuse,” said Sen. Orrin Hatch, R-Utah, chairman of the Finance Committee.

The IRS issued a statement after the report was released.

”The IRS is fully committed to making further improvements, and we want to do everything we can to help taxpayers have confidence in the fairness and integrity of the tax system,” the IRS statement said.

A Big-Name Democrat Just Broke Rank And Dropped An Absolute Hammer On Obama

The Senate’s number three Democrat, Chuck Schumer, D-NY, will oppose President Obama’s embattled Iran nuclear deal. Schumer Thursday night announced his decision. He cited concerns about the inspection regime, provisions to re-impose sanctions if Iran cheats, and Tehran’s freedom after a decade to possibly pursue a nuclear bomb.

Liberals and the White House howled at Schumer’s announcement.

“No real Democratic leader does this,” MoveOn.org political action executive director Ilya Sheyman said after Schumer’s statement was posted online. “If this is what counts as ‘leadership’ among Democrats in the Senate, Senate Democrats should be prepared to find a new leader or few followers.”

“I wouldn’t be surprised” if Senate Democrats consider Schumer’s decision in picking their next leader, White House press secretary Josh Earnest said Friday.

Republicans, like Pennsylvania Sen. Pat Toomey, called on Democrats to follow Schumer’s “independent path.”

A pre-announcement analysis on Vox summarized Schumer’s importance in the fight over passage of the controversial deal.

“A Schumer ‘no’ vote would also make it harder for Democrats to take a stand in support of the deal. Schumer has strong ‘pro-Israel’ credentials. If this prominent Democrat comes out and declares the deal bad for Israel, other Democrats are going to feel pressure not to contradict him,” Max Fisher wrote.

“To me, after 10 years, if Iran is the same nation as it is today, we will be worse off with this agreement than without it,” wrote Schumer, who is Jewish and a staunch supporter of Israel.

“I will vote to disapprove the agreement, not because I believe war is a viable or desirable option, nor to challenge the path of diplomacy,” Schumer added later. “It is because I believe Iran will not change, and under this agreement it will be able to achieve its dual goals of eliminating sanctions while ultimately retaining its nuclear and non-nuclear power.”

Something Spotted In A Satellite Picture Could Totally Change The Iran Nuke Debate

New satellite images indicate Iran may be trying to scrub evidence of its activities at one of its most controversial military sites ahead of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) inspection in the fall.

Recent photographs of the Parchin military complex – long believed by intelligence experts to be the site of Iranian nuclear weapons experiments – shows an increase in activity since the nuclear deal was signed.

“David Albright, the president of the Institute for Science and International Security, obtained a commercially available image of the Parchin site taken by satellites on July 26 that shows renewed activity at the Parchin site. He told us there are two new large vehicles, alterations ongoing to roofs of two of the buildings and new structures near two of the buildings,” according to Bloomberg View.

“You have to worry that this could be an attempt by Iran to defeat the sampling, that it’s Iran’s last-ditch effort to eradicate evidence there,” he said. “The day is coming when they are going to have to let the IAEA into Parchin, so they may be desperate to finish sanitizing the site.”

The IAEA and Iran have negotiated a secret “side deal” regarding the past military dimensions of the nation’s nuclear program. The deal requires Iran to give the IAEA access to Parchin no later than October 15. The two side deals have become one of the points of contention among members of Congress, who have 60 days to review the Iranian nuclear deal.

Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, has introduced legislation for the clock not to start on review of the Iran deal until Congress has knowledge of what the side deals entail.

Regarding the new satellite imagery, Senate Intelligence Committee Chairman Richard Burr, R-N.C., said on Tuesday: “I am familiar with it. I think it’s up to the administration to draw their conclusions. Hopefully this is something they will speak on, since it is in many ways verified by commercial imagery. And their actions seem to be against the grain of the agreement.”

A senior intelligence official, when asked about the satellite imagery, told Bloomberg View that the IAEA “was also familiar with what he called ‘sanitization efforts’ since the deal was reached in Vienna, but that the U.S. government and its allies had confidence that the IAEA had the technical means to detect past nuclear work anyway.”

Secretary of State John Kerry has stated that the United States has “absolute knowledge” about what Iran has done in the past, but lawmakers lack that confidence.

Senate Foreign Relations Committee Chairman Bob Corker, R-Tenn., said on Tuesday that Iran’s apparent activity at Parchin may not technically be a violation of the overall deal, but calls into question how forthright the nation will be in revealing the full extent of its past nuclear activities.

“The intel briefing [from the Obama administration regarding Parchin] was troubling to me…some of the things that are happening, especially happening in such a blatant way,” he said. “Iran is going to know that we know.”

Democratic Senator Chris Coons, D-Del., a member of the Foreign Relations Committee, said on Tuesday that what Iran is doing at Parchin is one of the reasons he is undecided on the overall deal.

“I have concerns about the vigorous efforts by Iran to sanitize Parchin,” he stated. “I’ve gotten some reassurance about how difficult it is for them to effectively conceal what we know to have been their illicit nuclear weapons developments there.”

As reported by Western Journalism, Congress has 60 days to review the deal, with a vote anticipated in September. The Republican majority is expected to reject it, but will need 44 Democrats in the House and 13 in the Senate to override President Obama’s promised veto.

Some Democrats in the House and Senate have already come out against the deal, including Sen. Chuck Schumer (N.Y.), who is slated to be the party’s next senate leader and is perhaps the most prominent Jewish-American lawmaker. Fellow Jewish Democrat Reps. Eliot Engel, Steve Israel, Nita Lowey (all from New York), and Rep. Ted Deutch (Fla.) have also said they oppose the deal. Additionally, Democrat Reps. Juan Vargas (Ca.) and Grace Meng (N.Y.) will vote against it.

A new Quinnipiac poll finds that Americans oppose the deal by a margin of 2-to-1 (57-28 percent). It garners lukewarm support from Democrats (52 percent for to 32 opposed) and strong opposition from Republicans (86 to 3 percent) and independent voters (55 to 29 percent).
