Shocking! When Even The UN Cannot Say Iran Has Peaceful Nuclear Intentions, What Is Obama Doing Giving Away The Nuclear Store To Iran?

Twitter/Mother Jones

On Monday, the United Nations International Atomic Energy Agency, the UN atomic watchdog investigating Iran’s nuclear capabilities, said that they could not verify at this point whether or not Iran’s nuclear facilities were being used for peaceful intentions.

The Jerusalem Post reported:

The UN nuclear watchdog chief said on Monday the agency still was not able to conclude whether all nuclear material in Iran was being used for peaceful purposes.

“We continue to verify the non-divergence of nuclear material declared by Iran but we are still not in a position to conclude that all nuclear material in Iran is in peaceful purpose,” International Atomic Energy Agency Director General Yukiya Amano said at a conference in Washington on Monday.

This is a shocking announcement considering the deal leaked to the press recently stated that Iran could continue to spin thousands of centrifuges in order to enrich uranium while getting relief from sanctions that have driven them to the negotiating table in the first place. These sanctions were put in place at the insistence of Congress and not the Obama administration, who tried to delay them as long as possible and now is trying to weaken them at every turn.

What this tells you is the Obama administration is trying to get a deal at any cost. The goal is to enhance Obama’s legacy rather than to protect the long-term security of the United States and our allies.

I also don’t believe the narrative put out by the Obama administration in the last couple days that there might not be a deal with Iran as they have not provided enough concessions. Obama will make a deal with Iran. This latest false flag is just to make the American public think he’s tough so we will swallow whatever eventual bad deal he commits our country to.

Senators Call For Defunding The United Nations If Obama Goes To The UN Against Israel

Obama

The Obama administration made a lot of noise over the weekend about its displeasure at Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s comments over the future of Palestinian statehood. Even though Netanyahu walked back his comments in an olive branch to the administration, the White House’s negative, threatening rhetoric towards the Jewish State has not diminished; in fact, it has increased.

What concerns many lawmakers in the House and the Senate are the administration’s threats to possibly change the level of support that America gives Israel in the United Nations. Historically, the United States has been the nation that prevents adverse action against Israel such as the United Nations proclaiming Palestinian statehood. Some senators over the weekend fired a shot across the administration’s bow on this issue.

The Jerusalem Post reports:

The US Congress should reconsider funding for the United Nations if the Security Council approves a resolution on Palestinian statehood, Republican Senator John McCain said on Sunday.

McCain, in an interview on CNN’s “State of the Union” show, said President Barack Obama should not even be considering such a resolution.

Breitbart also reported:

Senator Lindsey Graham (R-SC) threatened to cut off funding to the United Nations if President Obama uses it to bypass Congress on Iran sanctions on Thursday’s “On the Record” on the Fox News Channel.

“Here’s what the president needs to understand. If you go to the UN Security Council and you try to bypass the Congress to get this deal approved by the UN Security Council, but not come to your own Congress, then you’re going to risk Congress cutting off money to the United Nations” he stated.

The rubber is hitting the road here at the tail end of the disastrous Obama presidency. This is a very dangerous time for our nation. Our Congressional leaders are going to have to step up and defend the American way of life and our allies in the face of threats to injure them from our treasonous White House.

This may be the last opportunity for an old warrior like John McCain to rise to the occasion when his country needs him.

Obama Compares Republicans To Iranian Killers

Flickr/Embajada de Estados Unidos en Bolivia

Ok, now I’m really angry, as if I wasn’t before.

In an address to the Iranian people for the Nowruz holiday, OUR president compared Iranian terrorists and killers to Republicans in the Senate who are attempting to ensure he doesn’t sell-out the United States. After the big love-fest celebration at the White House for the Iranian new year with Michelle Obama, the French standing up to the Iranians instead of the United States, and the childish, pathetic administration’s response to Netanyahu’s victory in the election, and now this, the writing is on the wall—our president is an Iranian sympathizer.

He wants them to get a nuclear weapon. I am convinced of this now.

The Weekly Standard writes today of Obama’s address:

President Obama uses his Nowruz statement to speak directly to the Iranian people. In doing so, he compares Iranian hardliners to those Americans who are skeptical the president’s deal with Iran will prevent the rogue nation from getting nuclear weapons capability.

“The days and weeks ahead will be critical. Our negotiations have made progress, but gaps remain. And there are people, in both our countries and beyond, who oppose a diplomatic resolution. My message to you—the people of Iran—is that, together, we have to speak up for the future we seek,” says the president.

I’m going to attempt to refrain from cursing right now about this.

If you notice, there is also a veiled reference to Israel’s concern over Iran’s intentions as well. Yes, the Israel that has to live with daily threats to its very existence from Iranian Hezbollah terrorists on its borders.

Thank goodness we have a Republican Congress that can pass a bill to ensure Congressional oversight on this “agreement,” or whatever it is.  There is even word that the Senate may have enough votes to override a certain presidential veto on such a bill.

We can only hope. Obama needs to leave the presidency and America and go to the UN, where he belongs.

Obama Admin May Pull Support For Israel At UN

youtube

In the aftermath of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s resounding victory in Tuesday’s elections, senior Obama Administration officials have stated that the United States’ long-standing support for Israel at the United Nations may be withdrawn.

The two issues that have worsened the already-strained relationship between President Barack Obama and Netanyahu are the Israeli Prime Minister’s opposition to a nuclear deal with Iran, which the U.S. is currently negotiating, and Netanyahu’s promise, during the campaign, that there would never be a separate Palestinian state on his watch. He has since walked back that declaration, saying he wants a “a sustainable, peaceful two-state solution.”

Netanyahu explained the reasons for his opposition to a nuclear deal Iran in his address before a joint session of Congress last month. He reminded the members that Iran has a long history of not being a trustworthy negotiating partner and sponsoring violent acts against the United States and its interests. He went on to state that any deal that leaves the regime’s nuclear infrastructure in place “will not prevent Iran from getting nuclear weapons; it will all but guarantee it gets nuclear weapons — lots of them.”

A “two state solution” has been at the center of the United States’ effort to broker a peace between the Israelis and Palestinians over multiple administrations. Following the Oslo Agreement in 1993, the Palestinians gained a degree of self-rule over large portions of the West Bank and the entire Gaza strip, though still falling under the ultimate governing authority of Israel. In 2005, Israel disengaged from the Gaza Strip and removed settlements from the territory. Israel gained control of both areas during the Six Day War in 1967.

Netanyahu has stated on multiple occasions that he could never support returning to the pre-1967 borders because they are “indefensible.”

In December 2014, a resolution before the U.N. Security Council calling for an imposed two state solution, using the pre-1967 borders as a template, failed to pass by one vote. The eight of the nine votes needed for the measure to pass came from Russia, China, France, Argentina, Chad, Chile, Jordan, and Luxembourg. The United Kingdom, Lithuania, Nigeria, the Republic of Korea, and Rwanda abstained. Only the US and Australia stood directly with Israel and voted against the measure.

The United States, a permanent member of the Security Council, also indicated it would have vetoed the resolution if it had passed. Any of the five permanent members of the Security Council has the right to veto any measure brought before the body. The United States’ U.N. Ambassador, Samantha Power, at the time of the vote stated: “We voted against this resolution not because we are comfortable with the status quo. We voted against it because… peace must come from hard compromises that occur at the negotiating table.”

State Department spokeswoman Jen Psaki raised the possibility in a briefing Wednesday that the United States’ position at the Security Council could change: “The prime minister’s recent statements call into question his commitment to a two-state solution,” Psaki told reporters. “We’re not going to prejudge what we would do if there was a U.N. action.”

Secretary of State John Kerry, who is reported to be one of Netanyahu’s only true friends in the Obama Administration, called Wednesday to congratulate him after his Likud Party’s victory. So far, President Obama has not.

Update: President Obama called Prime Minister Netanyahu Thursday afternoon and congratulated him, but also told the prime minister that the United States is reassessing its options regarding the Israeli-Palestinian peace process.

Obama Considers Going To UN To Bless Iran Deal – Shredding What’s Left Of Constitution

Obama Ebola

We’ve seen Obama and Kerry desperate for a deal with Iran. We can only guess who the people pushing for this deal are, but we know it’s not good. We all know the deal will be bad for America.

Freedom-loving Americans have also seen with clear eyes the attempt by the Obama administration to keep the details of the “deal” away from Congress–and therefore away from the American people.

Congress has obviously struck back in an attempt to protect its Constitutional power by sending a letter to Iran stating the truth about the American Constitutional process. The White House didn’t like this one bit. Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s speech to Congress really sent the White House over the edge.

Obama is determined to allow Iran to have a nuclear weapon; so, he has a new plan. The White House will take the deal to the United Nations Security Council to “bless” the agreement, regardless of the fears and security of the American people.

Did you have any doubt that Obama was un-American?  Now, you can put those doubts to rest.

The National Review writes:

This points out the real way that Obama could try to end-run around Congress. He does not even need an agreement with Iran. He could just go to the U.N. Security Council and ask it to enact a resolution that would call for the quid pro quos of his ideal agreement. The Security Council could ask nations to drop its sanctions. It could also ask Iran to stop its nuclear program (basically repeating itself). It could call for international inspectors. But this would amount to a desperation move, because it would have no effect on Congress’s ability to impose mandatory sanctions or a future president’s right to violate any agreement with Iran, real or secret.

Obama’s calculation is that the next president will not want to upset the apple cart and impose sanctions or even military action to prevent Iran from proceeding with nuclear activities.

I think Obama is sorely mistaken, and this calculation only gives us confirmation he doesn’t have American interests at heart.
