“Neither a wise man nor a brave man lies down on the tracks of history to wait for the train of the future to run over him.” – Dwight D. Eisenhower
“Honesty is more than not lying. It is truth telling, truth speaking, truth living, and truth loving.” – James E. Faust
“The essence of lying is in deception, not in words.” – John Ruskin
“Once you start lying, you get kind of comfortable. You start believing it. Especially if you truly believe you didn’t really cheat because you were doing what everybody else was doing.” – Tyler Hamilton
Obama’s whole life seems to have been born on a series of deceptions and lies. By the way, you will not found this article, “politically correct”. Specifically:
o Where was he born?
o Who paid for his education?
o How did he go while a student in school on a visit to Pakistan for four months?
o Pakistan at the time was a country where travel was not allowed by the United States.
o Who paid for this expensive trip?
o What did he do there?
o Whom did he see?
o Who met him there?
o Who was his real father?
o Did he really go to Columbia?
o Is he Muslim? His training as a child was in the Koran and in Indonesia, a Muslim country.
o Is he American or British? – Kenya is a British Colony.
George Washington personally put into the Constitution that candidates for the presidency had to be “Native Born” and the Supreme Court has held that this means that both parents had to be born within the continental United States.
And the list goes on – – –
Now we have this man sitting in the presidency – a liar, possibly not American, possibly a Muslim and by multiple actions has demonstrated that he is not very interested in America, Americans, its Christian religion or the basic interests of this nation.
In the Iranian nuclear disarmament, he has orchestrated the Congress to allow him to negotiate a Nuclear treaty with IRAN that does not involve the Senate – a Constitutional Requirement – and requires a majority of the Senate to reject or approve the treaty without debate or revision – – – again, against the Constitution.
One has to admire the man, a better “Con Man” has never occupied the White House in the history of this nation.
Terms of the Nuclear Agreement
This article relies on a Dennis Prager article posted in Town Hall “Response the President’s Arguments for the Nuclear Deal”. for the specific quotations. The President’s speech was made at American University. In this speech, he referred to John Fitzgerald Kennedy’s American University speech called the Peace Speech – made in the 60s.
Obama points out before he enters into his arguments that in the 60s no one wanted a nuclear war because of MAD – Mutually Assured Destruction. That capability remains today but he does not mention it. If anyone attacks the U.S., we stand by with 1,200 minuteman with 3 war heads that can be targeted to 3,600 location plus several thousand nuclear sub missiles. If anyone attacks the U.S., they will be annihilated. Similarly, if we unilaterally attacked Russia, our major cities would disappear. Delivery capability is critical. The Nuclear agreement does not address this ability. Iran continues to work on this capability.
Obama points out that:
• No one in a communist country believed in communism. He was referring to Russia.
• Today, we have 100 million Muslims that really believe in the use of force – if necessary – to enforce “sharia” law on other people.
He then says that
• A number of advisers under JFK advised him to take action against Russia. He chose differently.
The Big Lies
Obama then states two principles that are meaningless or lies.
1. “After two years of negotiations, we have achieved a detailed arrangement that permit must be prohibits are ran from obtaining a nuclear weapon.”
a. The facts are that Iran has been permanently prohibited from obtaining nuclear weapons since 1970. Yet, they have proceeded on the path of getting them.
2. “It cuts off all of Iran’s pathways to a bomb.”
a. This is a blatant lie because there is no inspection “anytime, anywhere”.
b. If the IAEA suspects cheating, it gives Iran up to a 24 day notice. If Iran objects, the issue goes to the P5 + ! nations, which include Russia and China.
c. United States is prohibited from ever sending its own inspectors.
d. No military sites can ever be expected.
e. There are two secret appendices to this agreement. The United States Congress cannot see them.
3. “It contains the most comprehensive inspection verification regime ever negotiated to monitor a nuclear program.”
a. This is meaningless since it allows blatant cheating.
4. “Congress decides whether to support this historic diplomatic breakthrough, or instead blocks it over the objection of the vast majority of the world.”
a. Who cares what the majority of the world wants? This is in the United States agreement. As such, it needs to be negotiated by the Senate and agreed upon by the Senate per the constitutional black letter law.
5. “Between now and the congressional vote in September, you’re going to hear a lot of arguments against the deal, backed by tens of millions of dollars of advertising.”
a. He is referring to the Jewish lobby when he refers to tens of millions of dollars. Of course, this is a libel against Jews and Israel.
6. “Many of the same people who argued for the war in Iraq are now making the case against the Iran nuclear deal.”
a. This is a lie and an attack on the agreement’s critics. In fact, John Kerry, Hillary Clinton, and Joe Biden voted for the war in Iraq. Now they are voting for this agreement. It is a “1939 Chamberlain appeasement” agreement.
7. “There will be a 24/7 monitoring (key nuclear facilities).”
a. In fact, there is no monitoring of anything Iran does not want monitored and no monitoring of any facilities that are “military” has been agreed to.
8. “If Iran violates the agreement over the next decade, all of the sections can snap back into place.”
a. This is simply not true and he knows it. Chinese and Russian sanctions will not snap into place. Further, German and French companies are already negotiating agreements with Iran.
9. “Unfortunately we are living through a time in American politics where every foreign policy decision is viewed through partisan prism…Before the ink is even dry on this deal, before the Congress even read it, the majority Republicans declared their virulent opposition.”
a. This is nonsense. Fortunately, the terms are being published internationally but not within this country. Thus, the terms as noted in this article are generally known outside of the continental United States. Second, it is Congress and specifically the Senate’s job of negotiating treaties. If there is any partisanship shown by the Republicans, it is because this treaty is fundamentally wrong for the American citizen.
b. The president position is that if anyone agrees with him, the policy is not partisan. If anyone disagrees with him, the policy is partisan.
10. “The bottom line is, if Iran cheats, we can catch them, and we will.”
a. In fact, the bottom line is that Iran will cheat, we will not always catch them, and the Obama administration will have little desire to call Iran out for it – and admit they were wrong.
In summary, we find that:
• There are so many loopholes that we will one-day wake up to the fact that Iran is testing nuclear weapons.
• The partisan policies of the Republicans are in fact objections that all Americans should support.
• Upon signing this agreement, Iran will receive $160 billion of withheld funds. It is illusory to believe that these funds will be used for infrastructure building of the nation of Iran as president Obama has stated. Rather, they will be used to support the continuous funding of terrorist movements around the world just as they have done for 10 years. Thus, the funds will go to support Hamas, Hezbollah, the Houthis in Yemen and other Iranian terrorist groups. Obama is urging the Mideast war continuation.
In addition, Obama has made the following statements, which for the most part are foolish.
• “We will continue to insist upon the release of Americans detained unjustly.”
o This agreement fails to get the release of four Americans currently and unjustly held by the Iranians.
• “Just because Iranian hardliners chant, “death to America” does not mean that that is what all Iranians believe.
o It is not important what the Iranians believe as a people. It is only important with Iranian leaders believe. This is a police state where the people do not count.
• “It is those hardliners chanting “death to America” who have been most opposed to the deal. They’re making common cause to the Republican caucus.”
o This represents a historical low for presidential comments. He is equating the Republican opposition to the enemy.
• “As members of Congress reflect on their pending decision, I urge them to set aside political concerns.”
o This deal is bad for Americans and the world. However, he is equating any objection to be partisanship on part of the Republicans. This is nonsense. In fact, the Democrats are partisan in their support of this deal that is obviously not in the best interests of the American public.
• “My fellow Americans, contact your representatives in Congress, remind them of who we are, remind them of what is best for us and what we stand for so that we can leave behind a world that is more secure and more peaceful to our children.”
I certainly agree with the last quote. Please contact your congressional representatives and tell them to vote “no” on this monstrosity. Otherwise, it will lead to almost certain nuclear war in the Middle East within 10 years. If that occurs, there will be no way to keep the United States out of the conflagration. Thus, any grandchildren or children that are in the range of 8 to 12 years old will be involved in a nuclear war by the time they get be 18 to 21. None of us wants this. It is avoidable.
If you love your country, step up now and let your congressional representatives, know that this treaty is bad for America, for its peoples, and for you.
