Almost $200 Million Donated to Congressmen to Vote for Unconstitutional TPP/TPA & Eliminate US Sovereignty in Favor of International Tribunals

By Capt Joseph R. John, July 29, 2015

Please watch the two below listed very short videos, by clicking on the link, you will fully understand just how Speaker Boehner and Senate Majority Leader McConnell have betrayed what American citizens voted for in 2014.  By ramming the SECRET 800 page Fast Track Trade Promotional (TPP) Bill and the Trade Promotion Authority (TPA) Bill thru Congress, that nearly 4 weeks after it was signed into law, American citizens are still not being permitted to read it.  

TPP and TPA violate the US Constitution and eliminates US Sovereignty in favor of International Tribunals.  The Republican leadership ignored the demands of millions of Americans who have been demanding that Congress to reduce illegal immigration by a substantial majority of 3 to 1 in a national opinion poll, and are treating American citizens as if they have no right to know what law they have passed---hiding the fact that it violates the US Constitution.  Even though the Republican Congress controls the power of the purse, Obama has not lost a single major policy battle since Cong Boehner became Speaker of the House in 2010; in fact, Obama is delighted with Boehner’s Speakership.   On July 3rd, when Obama signed the Unconstitutional SECRET TPP/TPA bills into law, Boehner and McConnell were nowhere to be found, they were hiding during the signing ceremony, that law is a thorn in the side of every American voter who worked tirelessly to give the US House a conservative majority.

Both Democrat and Republican Congressmen received of over $200 million in payments from the International Chamber of Commerce to vote for the TPA Bill (the US Chamber of Commerce is no longer a US Chamber, most members are now anti-American foreign corporations who control the Speaker and the Senate Majority Leader with financial payoffs).  If the TPA Bill hadn’t passed, the provisions in the SECRET TPP Bill stated it would not have become effective.  Millions of dollars in payments that were paid to members of Congress by the International Chamber of Commerce as outlined in the below listed article, bribed Congressmen.   

Speaker Boehner received $5.3 million, Cong Ryan received $2.4 million, and it was reported that McConnell received $9 million to ram TTP thru Congress for Obama.  Their complicity and close cooperation with Obama, Pelosi, and Reid is what guaranteed the payoffs of millions of dollars to them; there support for TPP/TPA will result in permit Obama to bring in millions of non-Christian Illegal Aliens from 50 countries (including Mexico) to enter and work in the US.  Millions of Illegal Aliens added to the 20 million Illegal aliens already here, will destabilizing the US unemployed work force of 104 million Americans, and strike another blow to the Free Enterprise System.  

Millions of Illegal Aliens from 50 countries will be able unfairly compete with 104 million unemployed Americans and 46 million Americans on Food Stamps, because 5 or 6 illegals co-habituating in the same apartment, will be able to work at a much lower wages than Americans can afford to do.  Unlimited entry of foreign workers into the US, with no background investigations, to determine if they have terrorist ties, will continue to violate Federal Immigration Laws (ISIS Radical Islamic Terrorists have let it be known that they plan to enter the US using the TPP as cover).  

The FBI recently informed Congress that over 200 Muslim immigrants, who were put on a fast track for US Citizenship by Obama, are now fighting with ISIS killing Christians in Iraq.  Because the SECRET TPP passed, the massive pending entry of illegal aliens will effectively eliminate US Immigration controls, because a percentage of the millions of foreigners whose backgrounds will not be reviewed for terrorist ties, will pose a very serious terrorist threat to the National Security of the United States, the SECRET TPP/TPA Law is not only leaving the porous Southern Border wide open, but has effectively eliminating “all” US Borders.  

Congressional sources reported that Boehner has withheld millions of dollars of campaign support for conservatives Congressmen who voted in favor of their constituents conscious and refused to support TPP.  In some cases, Congressmen lost assignments, or were ridiculed, mocked, and relentlessly pressured because they wouldn’t vote for the SECRET Unconstitutional TPP Bill, or the TPA Bill-------very few Congressmen who voted for the TPP Bill even read it’s 800 pages.   

We object to the way that Speaker Boehner and Cong Ryan met out punishment against some of the endorsed and elected Combat Veterans For Congress who didn’t toe the line, but instead, voted against the unconstitutional 800 page SECRET TPP/TPA Bills.  They voted against it because it violated the Constitutional authority of Congress, violated US Sovereignty of the United States in favor of International Tribunals, opposed it because no American citizen has ever been allowed to read what is in the SECRET TPP Law, and they opposed Cong Paul Ryan’s steady stream of misinformation about what he was alleging was in the Unconstitutional SECRET TPP bill and the TPA Bill.  

The following Combat Veterans For Congress refused to support that Unconstitutional and SECRET TPP Bill:

Cong Duncan D. Hunter, Maj-USMCR (R-CA-50)

Cong Steve Pearce, Capt-USAF (R-NM-2)

Cong Paul Cook, Col-USMC (R-CA-8)

Cong Chris Gibson, Col-USA (R-NY-20)

Cong Scott Perry, Col/PA-ARNG (R-PA-4)

Cong Steve Russell, LTC-USA (Ret) (Ranger) (R-OK-5)

Cong James Bridenstine, Lcdr-USNR (R-OK-1)

The new TPP Law is not and has never has been about “Free Trade”, the nation already had “Free Trade” without the need for the 800 page SECRET TPP Bill, and the 196 page TPA Bill that the a plurality of members of Congress never read before they voted for them.  The American voters should ask their Congressmen on this Congressional recess why the TTIP and the TISA portions of both Bills are still being cloaked in SECRECY, even after they were signed into law on July 3rd.  The US Government is a Republic, not a dictatorship run by 5 individuals  (Obama, Boehner, McConnell, Pelosi, and Reid).   In 2016, the American voters should elect new members of Congress who then elect leaders of congress who will protect and defend the US Constitution from the repeated assault by the Caucus of Progressives, Leftist, Marxists, and Communist members of Congress. 

Speaker Boehner and Leader McConnell not only betrayed the American voters for millions of dollars in payoffs, but they fully funded Obamacare, funded the amnesty for 5 million Illegal aliens Obama planned to give alimony to, funded the federal Common Core curriculum pushing it into American schools thru the 50 State Education Departments, continue to refuse to enact legislation to close the wide open southern border, have never opposed Obama’s use of tax payers dollars to cover the cost of the UN Resettlement Program for hundreds of thousands of Muslims while excluding the resettlement of over 300,000 Christians fleeing ISIS genocide in the Greek Catholic Refugee Program, have struck a secret deal with Pelosi & Reid to give Congress special exemptions from Obamacare, and have not used the power of the purse to prevent Obama from degrading the strength of the US Armed Forces to levels below the level of strength they had prior to WWI.   The Congressional leadership has failed to oppose Obama’s devastating “Changes” in America’s family values and the US Armed Forces; the American voters should insist that their Congressmen make “Change” in the leadership of Congress, and elect leaders who will oppose the devastating Socialist  “Changes” Obama has been making in the Republic. 

Almost $200 Million Donated to Representatives to Pass TPA

June 16, 2015   Paola Casale

Many think our government is for sale. However, by taking a look at the facts below provided by the Open Secrets, it is easy to understand where they are coming from. Looking back at Friday the 12th, the House voted on Trade Promotion Authority (TPA), the controversial bill that gives power to the executive branch to negotiate treaties. TPA limit’s Congress’ ability to better a trade deal by subjecting members of Congress to 90 days of reviewing the trade agreement, prohibiting any amendments on the implementing legislation, and giving them an up or down vote. TPA passed with a mere 219-211 vote with only 218 needed to pass. The real shocker comes from the amount of money each Representative received for a yes vote. In total, $197,869,145 was given to Representatives for a yes vote where as $23,065,231 was given in opposition.

  • John Boehner (R-OH) received $5.3 million for a “yea” vote and was the highest paid legislator.
  • Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) received $2.4 million for his “yea” vote.
  • Paul Ryan (R-WI) received $2.4 million for a “yea” vote and came in at the third highest paid legislator.
  • Pat Tiberi (R-OH) follows Paul Ryan, coming in the fourth spot having received $1.6 million for his “yea” vote.

The fifth highest paid legislator is somewhat of a “hero” in comparison to others. Representative Steny Hoyer (D-MD) received $1.6 million for a yes vote and only $282,710 for a no vote. Despite of his high contribution from those in favor of TPA, he still voted a solid nay.  However 28 Democrats joined Boehner to vote for TPA and were financially rewarded by the Chamber of Commerce.

House Democrats to call before Fast Track Vote

 

We also have real Democratic and Republican hero stories.

  • Joe Crowley (D-NY) was offered 1.3 million for a “yea” vote and only $72,550 for a “nay” vote and he still voted against TPA.
  • Patrick Murphy (D-FL) was offered 1.1 million for a “yea” vote and only $213,360 for a “nay” vote and still voted against it.
  • Richard Neal D(MA) was offered $1.1 million for a “yea” vote and a mere $47,625 for a “nay” vote and still voted against it.
  • Mick Mulvaney (R-SC) was offered $541,746 for a “yea” vote and no money at all for a “nay” vote and he still voted “nay!”
  • Andy Harris (R-MD) was offered $254,803 for a “yea” vote and no money at all for a “nay” vote and he still voted “nay”.
  • Thomas Massie (R-KY) was offered $250,328 for a “yea” vote and no money at all for a “nay” vote and he still voted “nay.”
  • Dana Rohrabacher (R-CA) was offered $180,832 for a “yea” vote and no money at all for a “nay vote” and he still voted “nay.”

Where did this kind of money come from? Those in favor of TPA were Security Brokers and Investment Companies who donated a whopping $11.3 million dollars for a “yea” vote. Or big banking companies who donated $10.1 million dollars. In other words, Wall Street hashed out millions and millions of dollars to push for the passage of TPA.

Those numbers are absolutely staggering. Corporations are taking control of what policies are approved or blocked in the U.S. We cannot sit around while corporations decide what is “good” for America or not! This is a democracy, not a plutocracy! Contact your representatives and let them know that you do not want them to vote in favor of TPA!

President Ronald W. Reagan, 40th US President of the United States, (US Army Veteran)

By Capt Joseph R. John, July 28, 2015 

It has been twenty-six years, since the American people lived through the Reagan Revolution; and took it for granted that the nation was safe from the domestic threats.  The American people have watched their once safe environment dramatically change over the nearly 7 years that the Obama administration has been in control, there are now dangerous activities that threaten the stability of the nation being conducted by Progressives, Leftists, Marxists, Communist, Black Nationalists, convicted criminal Illegal Aliens, and ISIS Radical Islamic Terrorist.  Domestic enemies have gained strength as they actively try to destabilize the Republic; at the same time the Obama administration is working to effect “CHANGE” in The Free Enterprise System by promoting Socialism.  

 

America was fortunate to have a steadfast and Patriotic leader like President Ronald Reagan in the Oval Office for 8 years.  He learned from his long life experience and the lessons of history, how to best protect the nation, and carefully guided the Ship of State thru the shoal waters of a dangerous world at the onset of his Presidency.  President Reagan always supported the Judeo/Christian principles upon which the Founding Fathers framed the US Constitution for the Republic in 1776.  Under President Reagan’s leadership, the nation followed US Federal Immigration Regulations signed into Laws by previous Presidents, and he always protected and defended the US Constitution.   

 

In Ronald Reagan’s Presidency, and for 212 years prior to his Presidency, the amazing and unique US History of the Republic was taught to the nation’s youth in grammar schools, using school books that relayed an accurate record of founding principles and US History.  Under the current administration, many of the “positive lessons” previously taught in the US History curriculum in grammar schools, extolling America’s support for human rights, freedom, and independence, have been eliminated from Us History school books.  Much of the positive events about the greatness of America’s pioneers, that were previously taught to the nation’s youth, in grammar schools, for over 200 years are no longer taught in grammar schools.  Today the curriculum tends to presents a negative and critical view of US History which is force fed to the nation’s youth, as directed by progressive, leftist, and Socialists in the Obama administration who control the education agenda being directed to the 50 state’s Departments of Education.  

 

Obama’s Department of Health Education and Welfare has employed their control of Congressional funding for the 50 state’s education programs, as a Damocles Sword, held over the heads of State’s Departments of Education, requiring them to purchase specific history books and force feed the contents of those corrupted views of US History printed in these new Progressive US History books that schools are forced to purchase; there are few options to purchase the same types of  US History books that were once used in public education (students have even had to listen to attacks on Thomas Jefferson and other Founding Fathers in their classrooms).  

 

Thousands of high school graduates know very little about the Pilgrims, the Founding Fathers, the US Constitution, the Revolutionary War, the Civil War, how the US freed millions of oppressed & enslaved people in WWI & WWII while not retaining any of the territory the US conquered, the nation’s youth do not know that the US was the “first country in the world” to free it’s slaves, students in many cases do not know who was the first and subsequent US Presidents of the Republic, and know so little about the history of the Republic.       

 

When President Reagan was sworn into office, he focused on building the strength of a weakened US Armed Force (his slogan was “Peace Thru Strength”), he created the “Star Wars” strategic defense initiative that among other things created the Patriot Missiles Batteries used in Operation Desert Storm, protected the American people from domestic enemies, reined in the out of control & reckless spending by irresponsible members of Congress, strengthened The Free Enterprise System that created the most successful economic engine in the history of mankind, turned around the 20% unemployment & inflation rates he was faced with upon entering office,  protected “Freedom of Speech and Religion” guaranteed to all Americans by the 1st Amendment, guaranteeing the rights of all Americans to purchase & bear arms in accordance with the 2nd Amendment, always sought the consent of 2/3rd of the US Senate for the approval of all International Treaties as required by the US Constitution, fired the Traffic Air Controllers for illegally striking in violation of federal law & safety regulations, gave a speech in Berlin encouraging Russia to “Tear Down This Wall” which resulted in the elimination of the Iron Curtain, and gave many enthusiastic speeches for 8 years championing the freedom & opportunity that is America to nations throughout the world.

 

For nearly 7 years, the nation has sorely lacked President Reagan’s type of competent leadership---the Middle East is aflame, Russian aggression in Crimea and Ukraine has met with little opposition, ISIS Radical Islamic Terrorists are threatening & attacking the US’ traditional allies in the Middle East, the Obama is plagued by one scandal after another, the US Armed Forces has been weakened to levels before WWII, Illegal immigration is out of control, Obama and Holder have repeatedly attacked Law Enforcement Officers instead of trying to rein in criminal activity and looting of stores in the street riots, Obama is allowing Iran to develop nuclear weapons, and 104 million unemployed Americans are suffering from the current lack leadership on the economic front.

 

How fortunate we were to live thru the Reagan Revolution, to have witnessed such a wise, perceptive, and measured leader for 8 remarkable years. When President Reagan finally turned over the reins of a secure government 26 years ago, he left the nation with a very strong US Armed Force, his administration had the longest economic expansion & job growth in US History, and it was a time when America was in a strong leadership position in a very stable world.

Saudi Prince Bandar bin Sultan Stated The U.S. Nuclear Pact with North Korea failed. The Iran Deal is Worse.

Prince Bandar bin Sultan, the Saudi Arabian Ambassador to the United States between 1981 and 2005 has written the below listed damning column, in which he compares the Iranian Nuclear deal to the failed nuclear weapons deal with North Korea---and concludes it will have even worse consequences.  The reader doesn’t have to be a rocket scientist to fully understand—Obama is knowingly entering into a very bad and DANGEROUS deal for the America people. 

Prince Bandar stated, with regard to the Iranian Nuclear Weapons Agreement that Obama has damned the United States with, “the strategic foreign policy analysis, the national intelligence information, and America’s allies in the region’s intelligence, all predict not only the same outcome of the North Korean nuclear deal, but (it will be) worse---with billions of dollars that Iran will have access to.”

 

It is now obvious that Saudi Arabia, in self-defense, will develop its own Nuclear Weapons Program, and other pro-western Middle East allies like Egypt, Jordan, Turkey, Kuwait, etc. will follow suite.  By entering into the flawed Iranian Nuclear Weapons Agreement, Obama has assured Iran that it will be able to develop nuclear weapons, and by doing so he has created a nuclear weapons arms race in the Middle East.

 

Obama has been working closely with the largest state sponsor of terrorism in the world, a terrorist regime that has been killing Americans for 35 years, and is determined to destroy the United States and Israel.  Unfortunately, SECRET provisions that no member of Congress will ever be permitted to read has been agreed to by Obama.  The SECRET provisions of the Iranian Nuclear Weapons Agreement is another attempt by Obama to bypass the US Congress, just like he bypassed the will of the American voters with the SECRET Fast Track Trade Promotional Law(TPP).

 

The Republican leadership in the House and Senate struck another deal with Obama to allow Obama to refer to another “International Treaty” as an agreement, this time with regard to the Iranian Nuclear Weapons Agreement.  They previously struck a deal with Obama on the SECRET TPP,.800 page, Law that very few members of Congress read before they voted for it.  Obama is now able to be push the Iranian Nuclear Weapons Agreement  thru Congress, because of a previous agreement with the Republican leadership.   

 

Instead of abiding by the US Constitution and demanding the Iranian International Nuclear Weapons Agreement be treated like what it really is—an “International Treaty”, requiring a 2/3rd vote in the US Senate for approval, before it could be agreed to with Iran, the Republican leadership  instead agreed with Obama to turn that provision around.  Now, in order for Congress to “defeat” the Iranian Nuclear Weapons Agreement, it will, instead require a 2/3rd vote of the Congress “to defeat it, not to approve it”—it is a betrayal of American citizens and unconstitutional..  

 

It has been over 3 weeks since the TPP was signed into law, the American people are still being prevented from reading the contents of that International Treaty, being referred to as an agreement by the Obama administration.  The Iranian Nuclear Weapons Agreement also has SECRET provisions in the provisions on inspections; only Iran and the UN’s IAEA inspectors are being permitted to read those provisions, no member of the US Congress is being allowed to read those SECRET inspection provisions.  

 

The Iranian military’s progress on nuclear weapons development is being excluded from review in the Iranian Nuclear Weapons Agreement, so that the analysis of Iran’s develop of nuclear weapons can’t be evaluated or predicted in the future.  In addition, at the Iranian Parchim Military Nuclear Weapons Research and Development Facility, the IAEA is being prevented from collecting soil samples, only Iranians will be permitted to collect and test soil samples, so progress in Iran’s nuclear weapons development program at that Iranian R &D military facility will be kept hidden from the US.

 

Any member of Congress who votes for the very dangerous Iranian Nuclear Weapons Agreement that Obama approved, an agreement that will arm Iran with nuclear weapons with which to strike the United States and its Middle East allies, should be defeated in 2016, or be removed from office by a recall election.

Saudi Prince Bandar: The U.S. nuclear pact with North Korea failed. The Iran deal is worse.

By Adam Taylor   
Saudi Prince Bandar bin Sultan seen at his palace in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, in June 2008.  (Hassan Ammar/AP)

Prince Bandar bin Sultan, the Saudi ambassador to the United States between 1981 and 2005, has written a damning column in which he compares the Iran nuclear deal to the failed nuclear deal with North Korea -- and concludes it will have even worse consequences.

Writing for the London-based Arabic news Web site Elaph, Badar suggests that President Obama is knowingly making a bad deal, while President Bill Clinton had made a deal with North Korea with the best intentions and the best information he had. The new deal will "wreak havoc" in the Middle East, which is already destabilized due to Iranian actions, Bandar writes.

Writing about the failed deal with North Korea, which was agreed in 1994 and collapsed in 2003, Bandar says, "it turned out that the strategic foreign policy analysis was wrong and there was a major intelligence failure." He added that if Clinton had known the full picture, "I am absolutely confident he would not have made that decision."

The Saudi royal then contrasts this with the present situation with Iran, "where the strategic foreign policy analysis, the national intelligence information, and America’s allies in the region's intelligence all predict not only the same outcome of the North Korean nuclear deal but worse – with the billions of dollars that Iran will have access to."

Bandar says Obama is smart enough to understand this but that he is ideologically willing to accept collateral damage because he believes he is right.

The United States and North Korea signed the Agreed Framework in 1994, after North Korea announced its intention to withdraw from the nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT). Under the agreement, North Korea committed to freezing its nuclear weapons program in exchange for aid, causing significant controversy in the United States. The next U.S. administration, led by President George W. Bush, took a much more aggressive stance on the agreement, and in 2002 it confronted North Korea with accusations that it had been attempting a clandestine uranium-enrichment program.

In response, North Korea restarted its nuclear program, and the country withdrew from the NPT in 2003. Subsequent attempts to reach an agreement over nuclear weapons have failed. North Korea conducted its first nuclear test in 2006 and is currently believed to possess around 10 to 16 nuclear weapons (exact estimates vary). Experts say it is working to improve upon the size and sophistication of its nuclear arsenal.

Bandar is far from the first to contrast the situation in 1994 and now: The failure of the talks with North Korea has been a specter hanging over the talks with Iran.

However, there's disagreement over how to interpret any lessons taught by the failure of the North Korean deal: As The Post's Glenn Kessler has written, the Agreed Framework may have failed, but it did stall North Korea's nuclear ambitions. Analysts have pointed out that the two situations have many differences. The Carnegie Endowment's George Perkovich, for example, has argued that Iran has stronger incentives to stick to a deal than North Korea ever did.

Bandar is a major voice in Saudi foreign affairs. He was the longest-serving Saudi ambassador to Washington and headed the Saudi intelligence services between 2012 and 2014. His conclusion will carry weight in some circles: "People in my region now are relying on God’s will, and consolidating their local capabilities and analysis with everybody else except our oldest and most powerful ally," he writes.

The Saudi prince says the new Iran deal and other developments in the region have led him to conclude that a phrase first used by Henry Kissinger – “America’s enemies should fear America, but America’s friends should fear America more" – is correct.

Senator Tom Cotton Comes Out Swinging Against Iran Deal: 'Congress Will Kill' This


In March of this year, as reported in the below listed article by TPM Livewire, Senator Thomas B. Cotton, Cpt-USA (R-AR-Senate), an endorsed Combat Veterans For Congress, sent an open letter to the leaders of Iran, cosigned by 47 US Senators, that said a “flawed nuclear arms agreement” would be dangerous to the United States, and would be nullified by the US Congress.

Senator Cotton, an Iraq Combat Veteran, has been the most vocal opponent of a nuclear agreement with Iran.  In his recent appearance on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” show, Senator Cotton came out swinging, and took issue with the fact that the agreement allows  "where necessary, when necessary" inspections of Iran's nuclear sites rather than "anytime, anywhere" access to those sites, he recently stated:

"This proposed deal is a terrible, dangerous mistake that's going to pave the path for Iran to get a nuclear weapon while also giving them tens of billions of dollars of sanctions relief, even lifting the arms embargo at a time when they're destabilizing the entire middle east," 

 

The American people stand with Senator Cotton in opposition to this flawed Nuclear Weapons Agreement:

 

President Reagan famously said in his negotiations with Russia, “Trust, but Verify.”

 

The American people watched Obama negotiated for three years, while Iran continued to cheat on every agreement they entered into, and as recently as 4 days ago they chanted:

“Death to America”  

 

“There is No Trust” 

 

Iran is the world’s largest state sponsor of terrorism, has been killing thousands of Americans for 35 years, and the flawed Nuclear Weapons Agreement Obama is entering into with Iran gives a 24 day notice, before anyone can inspect any nuclear development facility in Iran, and it precludes the inspection of any military facilities.  There is:

 

“There is Absolutely No Verification”

 

The language in the agreement states inspections will be "where necessary, when necessary"------not 24/7 surprise anywhere, anytime inspections.

 

The agreement says nothing about intercontinental ballistic missiles, which is a fatal flaw and the most dangerous omission in the agreement.  Even if Iran were delayed in building their own nuclear weapons, and they are not, by provisions of the agreement, the International Atomic Energy Administration (IAEA) still needs 24 hour notice before it can inspect Iran’s nuclear weapons development program.  The failure to cover the inspection of the development of Iran’s intercontinental ballistic missile weapons development program will permit Iran to obtain smaller configured nuclear weapons from North Korea, to place atop their intercontinental ballistic missiles.  There is no way that activity can be inspected or whether it can be determined if Iran has an operational nuclear tipped intercontinental ballistic missile, until it is fired at an adversary.

 

How the Obama could have easily stopped a nuclear armed Iran: what were the alternatives:. 

1)      Iran is utterly desperate to have sanctions lifted. They want to sell oil, they want to buy arms, including the technology to build intercontinental ballistic missiles that can strike Israel, Europe, and the US---the US should have kept the sanctions on until Iran stopped killing Americans in Afghanistan and had 24/7 surprise anywhere, anytime inspections.  

2)      Iran wants billions of dollars in frozen assets returned that they will use to fund worldwide terrorism---the US should not release the frozen assets until the four US hostages are released.  

3)      Iran wants the US to give them $150 billion that they will use to empowers Hezbollah and the Qids Force by funding their terrorism activities—under no circumstance should the US give Iran $150 billion with which to fund worldwide terrorism against the US and their allies in the Middle East.

4)      The US should threaten to give Saudi Arabia, Jordan, Egypt, Bahrein, UAE, and Kuwait the option of basing a US nuclear armed force on their soil  that would be able to retaliate with nuclear weapons, if Iranian did strike any of the above listed allies, unless there were no 24/7 surprise anywhere, anytime inspections. 

5)      The US should threaten to provide Israel, with stealth bombers that they can use to strike Iran, if Iran continues to threaten the destruction of Israel.   

6)      Do not lift the Arms Embargo under any condition, unless Iran allows 24/7 surprise anywhere, anytime inspections of military sites.

 

What did the US and its allies get in the flawed Nuclear Weapons Agreement?

  

      Iran did not free four US hostages like Obama freed Iranian prisoners who threatened the US.

      Iran did not say they would stop killing Americans military personnel in Afghanistan with IEDs.      

      The US and NATO did not get 24/7 surprise anywhere, anytime inspections like they were told they would get on entering negotiations.
 
     Iran did not allow inspections of military sites.

      Iran did not stop threatening to destroy Israel.  

      Iran and their leaders did not stop saying “Death to America.”

      Iran entered into a secret agreement with the IAEA on inspections that has been excluded from the US Senate


 

The agreement Obama entered into is an International Treaty on Nuclear Weapons Development with Iran, that should have required a  2/3rd approval by the US Senate in accordance with the US Constitution—it is not an agreement that can be approved by an Executive Order, and the Republican leadership of the US Senate should use every conceivable senate parliamentary rule to preclude the approval of an International Treaty using an Executive Order, 

  

Obama is intentionally arming Iran with nuclear weapons with which they can use to attack Israel, the US allies in the Middle East,  and the United States!  He is fueling an nuclear weapons arms race in the Middle East which may lead to WWIII.

 

Any US Senator who votes to approve this very dangerous agreement, that threatens very survival of the Republic, should be considered a traitor to the United States, and should be removed by impeachment from office.

Senator Tom Cotton Comes Out Swinging Against Iran Deal: Congress Will Kill' This

 

By Catherine Thompson Published July 14, 2015, 9:25 AM EDT 8645 views 

The freshman senator who made waves earlier this year when he sent an open letter to Iran's leaders said Tuesday that a landmark nuclear deal struck with that country was "dangerous" and will be nullified by Congress.

"This proposed deal is a terrible, dangerous mistake that's going to pave the path for Iran to get a nuclear weapon while also giving them tens of billions of dollars of sanctions relief, even lifting the arms embargo at a time when they're destabilizing the entire middle east," Sen. Tom Cotton (R-AK) said in an appearance on MSNBC's "Morning Joe." "The American people will repudiate this deal and I believe Congress will kill the deal."

Cotton, an Iraq War veteran and the youngest member of the Senate, has been the most vocal opponent of a nuclear deal with Iran. He sent an open letter to Iran's leaders in early March that warned Congress did not intend to honor any potential deal. Forty-seven of Cotton's fellow Republican senators signed the open letter.

The Arkansas Republican particularly took issue with the fact that the deal allows "where necessary, when necessary" inspections of Iran's nuclear sites rather than "anytime, anywhere" access to those sites.

"Morning Joe" host Mika Brzezinski challenged Cotton on that point.

"It seems you're very quick to criticize the deal and it seems like you're reading a different deal, with all due respect," she said.

"It's easy to criticize the deal using the President's own words," Cotton said. "When we started down this path, he said the goal was to dismantle Iran's nuclear program. This leaves them intact."

Only Once A Year Do We Seek Your Support

 

My Fellow Americans,

 

     The most important Congressional election in 240 years will take place in 2016.  It is an election that will determine if America’s Free Enterprise System which built the most effective economic engine in the history of mankind will continue, or if it will be replaced by Socialism.   

    The results of the election will determine whether Obama’s vision of allying the Republic with Iran is fulfilled, or if the US will continue to support and protect its traditional Middle Eastern allies that the US has supported and worked with for over seven decades.  

     The election will determine if Christians in the U S Armed Forces will be protected from discrimination they are faced with for the first time in US history, and if Christians in the Middle East will finally be defended from the genocide being perpetrated by ISIS, Al Q’ieda, and other Radical Islamic Terrorists. 

     This election will determine if repeated violation of the US Constitution and Federal Immigration Laws will be allowed to continue, if 300 sanctuary cities, counties, & states will be permitted to violated Federal Immigration Laws to shielding over 160,000 convicted criminal illegal aliens released into the general population by Obama,  and if the porous southern border will finally be closed like the San Diego Border Sector has been securely closed for many years.  

      The election in 2016 will determine if the reckless spending and taxing by irresponsible members of Congress will continue, or if responsible Congressmen will be elected to rein in the out of control spending that is driving the National Debt up to $20 trillion.  

     The 2016 election will determine if the unilateral disarmament of the US Armed Forces will continue, or if the newly-elected Combat Veterans For Congress will put a halt to the hollowing out of the US military. 

      Over the past six years, the Combat Veterans For Congress PAC has endorsed 28 Combat Veterans who have served in Congress.  So far this year, we have endorsed 22 Combat Veterans For Congress in 16 states, posted in the attached list, who will run for election in November 2016.  With your help, we hope to recruit and endorse 25 more Combat Veterans For Congress to run for election in 2016.   

      The “Endorsement page” of our Web site provides the photos and biographies for each of the endorsed Combat Veterans For Congress who, on entry into the US Armed Forces, raised their right hands and swore to protect and defend the US Constitution.  They still continue to abide by their sworn oath, and will also support the nation’s traditional Judeo-Christian beliefs, upon which the nation was founded.   

     We need to elect members to Congress who appreciate the values that have made our country great; we can achieve that by recruiting a new slate of Combat Veterans For Congress who risked their lives to defend the Republic. 

      At one time in their lives, each endorsed Combat Veterans For Congress wrote a blank check made payable to “The United States of America” for an amount “up to and including their lives.”   

     To paraphrase President Reagan, most people go through their lives wondering if they’ve made a difference.   The endorsed Combat Veterans For Congress don’t need to wonder if they’ve made a difference.  You too, can make a big difference by helping us to recruit, endorse, and elect Combat Veterans For Congress.  

      The Combat Veterans For Congress PAC has no employees.  We are all volunteers who need your help.  All donations are used to recruit, do the background investigations on candidates, endorse, campaign for, and promote the visions of the Combat Veterans For Congress to the American electorate.   

       “Only once a year,” do we make this appeal for financial support.  Please consider making an important difference by printing out the below listed form  and sending it to us with a  generous donation, at a minimum, please make a donation in “any” amount that you can afford.  As an alternative, an internet donation can be made on our Web site.  Whether your gift is $10, $20, $50, or $100, we would be deeply grateful for your support. The future of the Republic depends on us!  If not now, when?  If not us, who?   

      You may want to view the “Endorsee of PAC” page of our Web site, which lists hundreds of well-known Patriotic Americans, from every walk of life, who have endorsed our efforts to protect and defend the US Constitution.   

       Please support our efforts by making an annual  donation in any amount you can afford to help us recruit, do the background investigation, endorse, and campaign for Combat Veterans For Congress, so we can make a change in the composition of Congress.   

      Would you kindly forward this annual request for support  to those in your address book who would support our efforts to protect and defend the US Constitution.

Cong Duncan D. Hunter will Re-Introduces His Bill Penalizing Sanctuary Cities, Counties, and States For Violating Federal Immigration Laws

In previous Congresses, Congressman Duncan D. Hunter, Maj-USMCR (R-CA-52), an endorsed Combat Veteran For Congress, repeatedly tried, without success, to get the Republican leadership in the House to support his legislation penalizing safe harbor sanctuary cities, counties, and states for violating Federal Immigration Laws.  The below listed Breitbart News article, explains Cong Hunter’s proposed legislation, and provides information on the murder of Kathryn Steinle in San Francisco, by Juan Francisco Lopez Sanchez, a convicted criminal illegal alien who had 7 previous felony convictions, and had been deported from the United States 5 times.

The Obama administration, inept members of Congress on both sides of the isle, and the left of center liberal media establishment have been covering up the thousands of crimes committed by convicted criminal illegal aliens against American citizens in 300 + safe harbor sanctuary cities, counties, and states.  Sanctuary policies are providing protection for Mexican drug cartels smuggling narcotics, violent criminal gangs from below the wide open southern border like MS-13, Mexican human smugglers, and convicted criminal illegal aliens whose presence in the USA has been harmful and dangerous to American citizens.   Those foreign criminal illegal aliens migrate to, and operate in safe harbor sanctuary cities, counties, and states; they are, for the most part, immune from deportation by ICE and from arrest from local & state law enforcement officers.  Local, county, state, and federal politicians who protect criminal illegal aliens, who have been injuring and killing American citizens every day throughout the nation, only view the victims of vicious crimes as “collateral damage” that are acceptable to them, because it would be politically incorrect to condemn them publically. 

 

Congressman Hunter said in an interview that he will re-draft and re-introduce his bill penalizing sanctuary cities, counties, and states on Tuesday or Wednesday; the bill will amend the Immigration and Nationality Act.  The bill will restrict funding to the estimated 300+ safe harbor sanctuary cities, counties, and states that have laws, policies, or procedure in place, that violate Federal Immigration Laws, and are preventing state and local law enforcement officers from gathering information, regarding the citizenship and immigration status of lawful or unlawful criminals and illegal immigrants.  

 

Cong Hunter’s legislation would make cities, counties, and states with sanctuary policies, laws, or procedures that violate Federal Immigration Laws, ineligible to receive funding from the State Criminal Alien Assistance Program (SCAAP).  The SCAAP reimburses cities, counties, and states for their cost of holding illegal aliens and convicted criminal illegal aliens. Once the bill being redrafted by Cong Hunter is finalized, it may also terminate other federal funding programs for cities, counties, and states that violate Federal Immigration Laws.

 

The Center for Immigration Studies published the below listed map revealing the counties, cities, and states where officials are defying U.S. Federal Immigration Laws

The above listed map reveals safe harbor sanctuary cities, counties, and states that ignore Federal Immigration Laws, and actively prevent U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) from deporting illegal aliens, without ICE’s need to seek criminal warrants or convictions from federal, state, or local courts. Although Federal Law requires the Department of Justice to cooperate with ICE when Federal Immigration Laws are violated, for the past 6 and ½ years, the Department of Justice has never sued or taken any measures, including denying federal funds to any city, county, or state, when they violate Federal Immigration Laws.  On the contrary, instead of taking action against over 300+ safe harbor sanctuary  cities, counties, and states that violate Federal Immigrations Laws, the Obama administration has made it very difficult on cities, counties, and states who choose to obey Federal Immigration Laws and support ICE Agents in detaining and deporting Illegal Immigrants from the United States.   

 

Different jurisdictions use different means to protect illegal aliens from lawful detention and deportation, in violation of Federal Immigration Laws.  North Dakota is perhaps the most extreme in violating Federal Immigration Laws.  North Dakota State policies forbid the state from honoring any ICE detainer, meaning that should local officers detain a suspected criminal illegal immigrant murderer or rapist, the local officers will not cooperate with Immigration or ICE officials, making deportation well-nigh impossible (Author Bryan Griffith & Marguerite Telford). 

 

Cong Hunter said in a statement to Breitbart News, “States and cities that refuse to enforce Federal Immigration Laws, directly undermine enforcement efforts — and as recent events have shown —they present a real danger to citizens.  If a state or one of its cities wants to call itself a sanctuary and deliberately ignores the law, then Congress shouldn’t hesitate to withhold federal funding until there is compliance,” Cong Hunter continued. “One program that most certainly should cease reimbursement is SCAAP, which is intended to mitigate the costs of incarceration, and extend to salaries and overtime.   We should also look to other programs too, but there should be wide support for a response, such as this proposal, that exercises a Constitutional prerogative of Congress in order to uphold the law.”

Since he was first elected to Congress, Cong Hunter’s policies have mirrored those of  President Reagan’s “Peace Through Strength” policies on national defense, he has tried to get the administration to fo0llow a “Don’t Tread On Me” foreign policy, and Cong Hunter has repeatedly voted to rein in the out-of-control federal spending by Congress.   Cong Hunter stated, “I will continue to work hard for the values we share----a strong national defense, a secure border, and limited government.  While there will be lively debate in Congress over the direction we take on a variety of issues---if we stay true to our values, then together, we can build a bright future for our children and grandchildren.” 

The true dangers inherent in the continued violation of Federal Immigrations Laws by Obama and Congress members of both parties, who refuse to close the wide open southern border, can’t be over emphasized.  For the last 6 1/2 years, not only has Obama and the leaders in Congress failed to protect American citizens from murder and violent crimes by convicted criminal illegal aliens, they are responsible for allowing Radical Islamic ISIS Terrorist enter the United States. Obama’s fast track to US citizenship for UN Islamic Refugees, is so dysfunctional, that over 200 of those new Islamic refugees American citizens have joined ISIS, and are now killing Christians in Iraq.   

The FBI has warned all Americans citizens, that ISIS is planning to kill thousands of Americans in multiple coordinated terrorist attacks.  No other country in the world, including Mexico, has provided the freedoms for illegal aliens, that safe haven sanctuary cities, counties and states provide to illegal aliens in the US.  No other country in the world would protect illegal criminal aliens from federal and local law enforcement officers, while they continue to commit crimes in their country, including murder.   

We encourage you to share the above information with Americans citizens who are opposed to the over 300 safe harbot sancturay cities, counties, and states that violate Federal Immigration Laws, and by doing so, also violate the US Constitution.  We also encourage you to contact your Congressmen and Senators and ask them to support Cong Hunter’s bill.  Ever member of Congress who supports safe haven sanctuary policies and opposed Cong Hunter’s legislation should be voted out of office in the 2016 election.

Brietbart News

Cong Duncan D. Hunter will again introduce legislation targeting sanctuary cities,

 

Hunter’s bill would amend the Immigration and Nationality Act to restrict funding to any state or locality that has in place a law, policy or procedure in contravention of federal immigration law, preventing “state or local law enforcement officials from gathering information regarding the citizenship or immigration status, lawful or unlawful, of any individual.”

 

The legislation would make those cities with sanctuary policies or laws in place ineligible for State Criminal Alien Assistance Program (SCAAP) funding. SCAAP reimburses states and localities for the cost of holding illegal immigrants convicted of crimes.

“States and cities that refuse to enforce federal immigration laws directly undermine enforcement efforts and — as recent events have shown — present a real danger to citizens,” Hunter said in a statement to Breitbart News.

“If a state or one of its cities wants to call itself a sanctuary and deliberately ignore the law, then Congress shouldn’t hesitate to withhold federal funding until there’s compliance,” he continued. “One program that most certainly should cease reimbursement is SCAAP, which is intended to mitigate the costs of incarceration, and extend to salaries and overtime.  And we should look to other programs too, but there should be wide support for a response, such as this proposal, that exercises a constitutional prerogative of Congress in order to uphold the law.”

The bill is still being drafted and could target additional funding once finalized. Hunter expected to officially introduce it Tuesday or Wednesday.

Hunter’s legislation comes on the heels of the shooting death of Kathryn Steinle by a five-time deported, seven-time convicted felon at a San Francisco pier.

The alleged shooter, Francisco Sanchez, has admitted to shooting the young woman and revealed that he chose the Golden Gate City because of its sanctuary city policies.

Immigration and Customs Enforcement has pointed out that although the agency had a detainer on Sanchez from a March arrest, the San Francisco Police Department did not honor it and Sanchez was released.

“ICE places detainers on aliens arrested on criminal charges to ensure dangerous criminals are not released from prisons or jails into our communities,” ICE explained in a statement.

According to the Bureau of Justice Assistance, in Fiscal Year 2014 the state of California received $41.6 million in SCAAP funding.

  The California Republican has introduced other iterations of the bill in past Congresses.


Why Obama Consistently Capitulated to Iran's Demands During Nuclear Weapons Negotiations

From 2009 to the present,  Obama, with the guidance of Valerie Jarrett, has been involved in clandestine negotiations with Iran, the largest state sponsor of terrorism in the world.  Americans will recall that on November 4, 1979 Iran “Declared War on the United States” when it invaded the US Embassy in Tehran and took all the Americans in the Embassy as hostages—Jimmy Carter did nothing.  Since then, for over 35 years, Iran has been killing thousands of Americans.    

For 6 years, while Iran was employing Iranian manufactured Improvised Explosive Devices (IEDs) to kill and maim (for life), thousands of members of the US Armed Forces, Obama has been involved in secret back channel negotiations in Oman, not negotiating to stop Iran from employing Iranian manufactured IEDs to kill members of the US Armed Forces, or in  negotiations to prevent Iran from developing nuclear weapons.  

 

For over 3 years, Obama has continued to lie to the American people, by saying first Hillary Clinton and then John Kerry have been engaged in negotiations to prevent Iran from developing nuclear weapons; nothing could be further from the truth.   Obama has only been interested in normalizing diplomatic relations with Iran, regardless of the cost to the lives of US military personnel in combat over a 6 year period,  regardless whether it resulted in giving Iran nuclear weapons to put atop its intercontinental ballistic missiles.

 

Please read the below detailed report of the treacherous activity that began with Hillary Clinton, and continues with John Kerry, their treachery is chronicled in The Wall Street Journal, the Western Journal, The Weekly Standard, and in the Associated Press news  read a new article  written by Journalists Mathew Lee and Bradley Klapper.  The Obama’s clandestine activity have been covered up for 6 years by the left of center liberal media establishment, and the members of the US Congress who have been kept informed of those step by step negotiations.  

 

Obama chose to decouple his negotiations concerning Iran’s development of nuclear weapons from Iran’s aggressive behavior in the Middle East that was killing members of the US Armed Forces in Iraq and Afghanistan.   Obama, Valerie Jarrett, Hillary Clinton, and John Kerry backtracked on virtually every demand that would have curbed Iran’s nuclear weapons development program and on international inspection regime that would have detected Iran’s continued violations of every agreement it ever entered into.  

 

The American people should know that Obama plans to give Iran $150 billion of US taxpayers money (that Iran will use to continue destabilize the Middle East), will lift economic sanctions that were imposed on Iran for going forward in the development of nuclear weapons, will enter into a formal agreement that will permit Iran to develop nuclear weapons, will allow Iran to keep 4 innocent Americans in prison (a US Marine, a Christian pastor, a retired FBI Agent, and a journalist), and for that agreement Obama will get ABSOLUTELY NOTHING!!!  I take that back, Iran will be allowed to continue to kill and maim members of the US Armed Forces in Afghanistan with their IEDs.

 

Iran’s Supreme Leader, Ayatollah Khamenei, struck to his red lines, whereas, Obama made concession after concession on virtually every Iranian demand, including excluding inspections by the UN’s IAEA inspectors to ensure Iran is not developing of nuclear weapons at military facilities.  It really didn’t matter to Obama, since preventing the development of nuclear weapons was never the purpose of the negotiations—the goal of negotiations that began in 2009 has always been to focus on normalizing diplomatic relations with Iran, even though they were killing and maiming thousands of Americans military personnel in Iraq and Afghanistan with their Iranian manufactured IEDs.

 

Obama will soon authorize Iran to develop nuclear weapons, not with an international treaty, required by the US Constitution, that would require a 2/3rd approval of the US Senate, but by an another of his unconstitutional Executive Orders.  In doing so, Obama will have initiated a nuclear arms race in the Middle East, may be responsible for forcing Israel to take action in self-defense to strike Iran’s nuclear weapons manufacturing facilities, and his ineptness will probably set the stages for escalating events into the beginning of World War III.

Exposed: Why Obama Capitulated To Iran During Nuclear Negotiations

 

Here are a few examples of the concessions the U.S. has made since the start of the negotiations with Iran.

Yochanan Visser June 29, 2015 

With the deadline to reach a nuclear deal with Iran rapidly approaching, reports are coming out about the way the U.S. administration conducted negotiations with the Islamist regime in Tehran.

From these reports emerges a shocking picture. The Obama administration didn’t negotiate to dismantle Iran’s nuclear program at all, but merely wanted reconciliation with the Islamic Republic.

RELATED STORIES

 

The Wall Street Journal reported today that Obama conducted clandestine contacts with Iranian officials with the goal of improving ties between the two arch-enemies from the outset of his presidency. The secret dispatches started in late 2009 after mediation by the government of Oman. Iran was very suspicious of the administration’s intentions and sent a wish list to test Obama’s commitment to improving ties. The regime in Tehran wanted the release of Iranian prisoners from American and European jails and wanted the administration to blacklist opposition groups hostile to the regime. The Iranians also demanded more visas for Iranian students who wanted to study at universities in the U.S.

Obama decided to give in to most of the Iranian demands and facilitated the release of Iranian prisoners; he blacklisted some Iranian opposition groups and granted more visas to Iranian students.

“In September 2011, then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton announced a ‘virtual embassy,’ allowing Iran to facilitate visas and student exchange programs. Iranians had complained, via Oman, that U.S. universities were discriminating against their students,” WSJ reported. 

TRENDING STORIES

 

The president also sent letters to Iranian leaders that aimed to build up the trust of Khamenei and Ahmadinejad in his intentions.

The revelations about the start of the clandestine contacts with Iran in late 2009 also shed new light on Obama’s behavior after the election fraud by the Khamenei regime that led to a popular uprising in Iran in June 2009.

Obama made clear at the time that it would be “counterproductive to be seen meddling in the Iranian election results.” The president said this when he was under pressure from the Iranian opposition and public opinion in the U.S. to intervene and help the opposition topple the regime of Ahmadinejad and Khamenei.

The president justified his decision not to intervene during a television interview on June 16, 2009.

Here is what he said: 

Although there is amazing ferment taking place in Iran, the difference between Ahmadinejad and Mousavi (leader of the liberal opposition) in terms of their actual positions may not be as great as has been advertised. We’ve got long-term interests in having them not weaponize nuclear power and stop funding organizations like Hezbollah and Hamas. And that would be true whoever came out on top in this election.
  

 

Eventually, the back channel talks between Iran and the Obama administration paved the way to direct nuclear negotiations that started in 2013. As has become clear by now, the primary goal of the U.S. administration in these negotiations was normalization of America’s relationship with Iran.

It explains why Obama chose to decouple the nuclear negotiations from Iran’s aggressive behavior in the region and why the administration backtracked on virtually every demand that would have curbed Iran’s nuclear program. Iran’s supreme leader, Ayatollah Khamenei, stuck to his red lines, whereas Obama made concession after concession to the Iranians during the negotiations.

Just last week, Khamenei 
published his red lines on Twitter and made clear he would not cave in on key aspects of the deal. Khamenei’s list contained some new conditions for a deal that violated the fact sheet that was released after the agreement in Lausanne earlier this year.

The Weekly Standard 
published a list of Obama’s concessions toward Iran that made clear the President will do whatever is necessary to close this deal with Iran.

Here are a few examples of the concessions the U.S. has made since the start of the negotiations with Iran:

Disclosure of previous nuclear activity

 

  As recently as April, Secretary of State John Kerry suggested that Iranian disclosure of past activity was a red line for U.S. negotiators. “They have to do it. It will be done. If there’s going to be a deal, it will be done. It will be part of a final agreement. It has to be,” Kerry said.

But on June 16, Kerry cast aside those demands. “We’re not fixated on Iran specifically accounting for what they did at one point in time or another. We know what they did. We have no doubt. We have absolute knowledge with respect to the certain military activities they were engaged in. What we’re concerned about is going forward.”

 

 

On the closure of the Fordo underground uranium enrichment facility

Then: “The Obama administration and its partners are “demanding the immediate closing and ultimate dismantling” of the nuclear facilities at Fordo.

 

(April 7, 2012, New York Times)

“We know they don’t need to have an underground, fortified facility like Fordo in order to have a peaceful program.”

December 6, 2013, Barack Obama, remarks at the Saban Forum

Now: “Under the preliminary accord, Fordo would become a research center, but not for any element that could potentially be used in nuclear weapons.”

April 22, 2015, New York Times

On suspension of enrichment

Then: “Our position is clear: Iran must live up to its international obligations, including full suspension of uranium enrichment as required by multiple U.N. Security Council resolutions.”

April 7, 2012, National Security Council spokesman Tommy Vietor, New York Times

Now: “Agreement on Iran’s uranium enrichment program could signal a breakthrough for a larger deal aimed at containing the Islamic Republic’s nuclear activities.” The tentative dea

l imposes “limits on the number of centrifuges Iran can operate to enrich uranium” but allows Iran to continue enrichment. 

March 19, 2015, Associated Press

 

The Weekly Standard article didn’t address what is currently going on in Vienna, where the negotiations on a final agreement are taking place.

Israel Project director Omri Ceren, who is in Vienna, wrote to Western Journalism in an e-mail that the West might have made yet another concession on the inspection regime after Khamenei made clear Iran would not allow inspections of military sites.

While the IAEA has always said that any effective inspections regime demands unlimited access to all sites, reporters are now told that the “mechanism will be one of ‘managed access.’ This means the Iranians will get a voice in whether the IAEA gets access to places the Iranians might be cheating.”

That “will, in theory, give them the ability to cheat safely for months before having to shut down,” Ceren wrote.

To understand the Administration’s eagerness to reconcile with the Islamic Republic of Iran, one should read a new article by Associated Press journalists Matthew Lee and Bradley Klapper.

They reported that a certain kind of coziness had been created between administration officials and Iranian diplomats that took a toll on relations with longtime allies such as Saudi Arabia and Israel. 

Whether or not the U.S. and its negotiating powers can clinch a pact in Austria’s capital over the next several days, it’s hard to imagine the tentative U.S.-Iranian rapprochement ending anytime soon. It’s become the new normal.

  

 

Klapper and Lee gave some examples of the “new normal”: 

In March, Kerry began a meeting by offering condolences to Rouhani after his mother died and wished the Iranians a Happy Persian New Year with the traditional declaration of “Nowruz Mubarak.” Later, he approached Rouhani’s brother, a member of the Iranian negotiating team in Lausanne, Switzerland and hugged him.

 

 

The AP journalists reported that the rapprochement is not exactly a two-way street: 

Only last week, many Iranian parliamentarians chanted “Death to America” as they passed legislation that would bar nuclear inspectors from visiting military sites – a key U.S. and international demand. Iran’s supreme leader, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, has delivered a series of speeches sharply denouncing U.S. intentions and tactics in the nuclear talks and on broader geopolitical matters.
  

 

The Iranian coldness and anti-U.S. rhetoric has not prevented unprecedented cooperation between the U.S. forces and Iran in Iraq. Last week, Bloomberg reported that “U.S. soldiers and Shiite militia groups are both using the Taqqadum military base in Anbar, the same Iraqi base where President Obama is sending an additional 450 U.S. military personnel to help train the local forces fighting against the Islamic State. Some of the Iran-backed Shiite militias at the base have killed American soldiers in the past.”

The Iraqi government has no control over the Shiite militia groups at the Taqqadum base. Bloomberg interviewed a senior administration official who said that “Iran is ushering in a new Hezbollah era in Iraq, and we will have aided and abetted it.”

“With the deadline approaching for a nuclear deal that would place up to $150 billion in the hands of Iran, the U.S. is now openly acknowledging in its annual report on international terrorism that Iran is supporting a foreign legion, comprising Afghans, Iraqis and Lebanese fighters, to defend Iranian interests throughout the Middle East,” Bloomberg reported.

The latest news coming out of Vienna is that a deal with Iran is possible in the coming days, although the June 30 deadline will not be met. EU Foreign Policy chief Frederica Mogherini said today: “I would say that the political will is there. I’ve seen it from all sides we have conditions now to close the deal.”

The news about the imminent deal led to a sharp reaction from Israeli Prime Minister Benyamin Netanyahu at the start of a meeting of the Knesset Foreign Affairs Committee.

“I am not impressed by the potholes in the nuclear talks. To my regret, what we are seeing are Iran’s increasing demands, and the major powers’ concessions that are also increasing, in keeping with the Iranian pressure. This agreement is going from a bad agreement to a worse agreement and is becoming worse by the day,” Netanyahu said.



Obama's Clowed Priven Program Turning the US Into a Socialist Welfare State

 
What good fortune for governments that the people do not think."
- Adolf Hitler

The majority of elected members of Congress "do think", but have not employed vigorous Congressional oversight to oppose the multiple dangerous programs the consortium of Obama, his 45
un-elected Czars, and the 70 member Socialist/Progressive/Communist Congressional Caucus have put in place for over 6 ½ years, in order to "CHANGE" the Republic into a Socialist Welfare State.  That consortium has loosened up qualifications for welfare, to make it very easy to issue Food Stamps to  46 million illegal immigrants and non-working  Americans, by imposing the highest corporate taxes in the world on US Corporation that have driven them out of the United States, "CHANGED" the most successful medical system in the world into a Social Welfare Medical System with the highest medical insurances rates in US history (40 million low income Americans still have no health insurance at all), created 163,333 pages of anti-business and oppressive environmental regulations
that are destroying the Free Enterprise System, and is spending 71% of the national budget on entitlements and interest on the debt.
 
Obama, Clinton, Kerry, and Valerie Jarrett have turned the US away from the NATO and Middle East allies it had for 75 years, to support Iran, the largest state sponsor of terrorism in the world, to develop nuclear weapons. At the same time, Obama is courting very warm relationships with Communist Vietnam, Communist Cuba, Communist Russia, Communist China, and Marxist Venezuela.  Obama's support for Communism, would make Frank Marshal Davis, Secretary of the Communist Party USA, who was Obama's teacher/mentor every day after school for 10 years, very proud.  The Republican leadership of Congress has said nor done nothing while the Obama realigns US support away from democratic and pro-western allies to close ties with Communist allies.
 
Democratic members of Congress, with the help of the Republican leadership, have continued to fund Obama's Progressive, Socialist, and Welfare programs; despite the fact that the Republican Congress has had the power of the purse to halt the spending on programs that is undermining the US Constitution for over 4 years.  The 21 elected Combat Veterans For Congress in the attachment, although a small percentage of the 535 members of Congress, have consistently opposed Obama's Clowed Priven programs designed to turn the US into a Socialist Welfare State, weaken the US Armed Forces,  and destroy the
Free Enterprise System.
 
For 6½  years Obama's Clowed Priven programs and Alinsky principles have been employed to erode individual freedoms guaranteed for all Americans by the US Constitution & the Bill of Rights, to weaken the US Armed Forces &
degrade its "Combat Effectiveness", and to replace The Free Enterprise System with a Socialist Welfare State.  The Obama administration has been employing Alinsky principles and Clowed Priven principles to execute damaging "CHANGES":
 
 
1)      In the US Armed Forces by including the "Social Experiment on
Diversity" in military regulations; degrading moral, unit cohesiveness, and
"Combat Effectiveness"
 
2)      in the enforcement of Federal Immigration statutes by halting the
deportation of 15 million Illegal aliens and keeping the border wide open
 
3)      in the Rules Of Engagement (ROE) in combat, resulting in increases
in the  number of combat personnel Killed In Action by 458% and Wounded In
Action by 378%
 
4)      in support for law enforcement by publically criticizing and
vilifying of police officers, disobeying Federal Laws, and violating the US
Constitution
 
5)      in the leadership of the US Armed Forces by purging hundreds of
highly decorated senior officers, and  make the military adhere to
Politically Correct Philosophy
 
6)      in support for the 2nd Amendment by a constantly campaigning with
the UN to remove gun rights away from American citizens
 
7)      in the strength of the US Navy Fleet by decreasing the number of
ships to the level that existed prior to WWI
 
8)      in the healthcare for individuals that have driven Obamacare costs
and deductions for Americans to increase by over 30%/year
 
9)      by increasing US business taxation to the highest corporate tax in
the developed world, driving corporations to re-locate in foreign countries
 
10)    by imposition of 163,333 pages of new oppressive anti-business and
pro-EPA regulations, driving corporations to re-locate in foreign countries
 
11)   in the strength of the US Army to a manning level that existed prior
to WWII
 
12)   in violating "Freedom of Religion" guaranteed to military personnel in
the Bill of Rights who have well held Judeo/Christian religious beliefs
 
13)   in refusing to explain why "Cross Border Authority" was not issued to
authorize the rescue of 4 Americans killed in The Battle of Benghazi,
 
14)   in issuing thousands of new EPA regulations to enforce unproven
environmental science upon businesses damaging the Free Enterprise System
 
15)   in increasing the size of the bloated federal bureaucracy to a level
that is completely out of control
 
16)   in the federal debt that is projected to exceed $20 trillion by 2017,
more debt than all 43 previous US Presidents together accumulated in 239
years
 
17)   by employing Obamacare to distribute the wealth of hard working
Americans to illegal aliens and Americans avoiding work
 
18)   in dividing Americans by promoting class envy, creating a non-existent
war on women, and by creating more conflict in race relations than existed
before 1950
 
(20) in enforcing the largest increase in taxation by the IRS in US History,
ordered by the Obamacare Law on January 1, 2015:
 
(a) Increase in Medicare costs from 1.45% to 2.35%
 
(b) Increase the top Income tax bracket from 35% to 39.6%
 
(c) Increase the top Payroll tax from 37.4% to 52.2%
 
(d) Increase the Capital Gains Tax from 15% to 28%
 
(e) Increase the Tax on Dividends from 15% to 39.6%
 
(f) increase the Estate tax from 0% to 55%
 
(g) Enacted a new Real Estate Transaction Tax of 3.5%  on all Real Estate
transactions
 
 
The above listed "CHANGES" in America are designed to make the Republic a
Socialist Welfare State, and  over the last 6 ½ years those "CHANGES" have
been covered up by the left of center liberal media establishment. Those
"CHANGES" have also taken effect by the issuance of 194 of Obama's Executive
Orders in his regulation over reach.  The changes that began over 6 years
ago, are now occurring so often and with such rapid succession, that it is
very difficult to keep up with them, or even comment on them.   Click on the
below listed link to view how Obama is driving the US to follow the
Socialist Welfare System followed by the government  in France:
 
 
Many "CHANGES"  could never have occurred if Obama tried to pass those
"CHANGES" thru legislation in Congress.  Obama was able to change federal
statutory laws via expedited Congressional procedures in passing Obamacare
and Fast Track Trade Promotional Authority.  There were many procedural
rules that should have been followed to pass those law, including but not
limited to Senate cloture rules, by which bills require a 60-vote
supermajority, in order to be approved in the US Senate.  With the help of
the Republican leadership in Congress, Obama eliminated the need for
extended debate, the need to consider amendments, and eliminated the need
for the 60-vote threshold in the Senate to pass Fast Track Trade legislation
that past week.
 
The non-stop "CHANGES" required thousands of new oppressive regulations are
designed to overload the bloated federal government bureaucracy, and are
classic text book Clowed Priven policies. It is all part of Obama's strategy
to destabilize the Republic, weaken the US Armed Forces, and destroy the
Free Enterprise System.   Obama used to teach Clowed Priven Philosophy to
radical leftists, Socialist,  Marxists,  Communists, and Black Liberal
Philosophy students in his classes as a Community organizer in Chicago.

Pet Adoptions for Military Families---Adoption Fees Waived----(Only On Saturday, July 4TH)

In order to celebrate the birth of our Republic, on the 4th of July, and to honor members of the US Armed Forces for their dedicated service in the defense of the nation, the Helen Woodward Animal Center is covering adoption fees for military families for pet dogs or cats, but this offer is only valid on July 4th 

Military members or a military families in Southern California can adopt one of those dogs or cats that have already been screened medically by Veterinarians, whose medical records are up to date on all their vaccinations, and who are even tempered & compatible for very young children.

This is a very generous and patriotic gesture by Helen Woodward Animal Center in support of members of the US Armed Forces who have served the nation; it is actually equivalent to a donation to each military member for up to $350.    

To receive their pet, the military member must cover a mandatory microchip fee of $50 and they will be required to contact the Helen Woodward Animal Center Adoption Department at (858) 756-4117 xt 313 and visit http://www.animalcenter.org and provide Helen Woodward’s Adoption staff at 6462 Apajo road in Rancho, Santa Fe, CA with their proof of service with one of the following:

Happy Fourth of July-----God Bless The USA

Each Fourth of July and throughout the year, Americans express their support for the freedoms they enjoy and for the unlimited opportunities they have to improve their station in life because of The Free Enterprise System.  The Fourth of July is also an opportunity for each Patriotic American to celebrate a second birthday.  

Countless generations of Americans fought for and under the American Flag.  The American Flag symbolizes the unity of the American people, is flown on national holidays, and symbolizes the principles upon which the Founding Fathers established the Republic, in signing the Declaration of Independence 239 years ago. 

 

On the Fourth and every day, Americans continue to demonstrate their support for Military Veterans, members of the US Armed Forces who swore to protect and defend the US Constitution, and proudly served in the defense of the Republic, under the American Flag.  

 

At one point in their lives, Americans who served in the US Armed Forces, wrote a blank check made payable to “The United States of America” for an amount “up to and including their lives.”  The courage demonstrated by Combat Veterans who served in the defense of the Republic, can be appropriately described by a quote, made in 352 BC, by King Philip of Macedonia:

 

           “Here is courage, mankind’s finest possession.  Here is the noblest prize.”   

 

Kindly click on the below listed link, to listen to an outstanding presentation that is appropriate for the Fourth of July:

High Alerts have been issued by US Intelligence Agencies because of threats of attacks by ISIS terrorists on the United States during Fourth of July celebrations.  We encourage all Americans to respond to those threats by flying the American Flag on the Fourth of July weekend, and by continuing to join with their fellow Americans to celebrate the Fourth of July in the same way they have done so in the past.   

 

We are so fortunate to be citizens of this great Republic!  We and the Combat Veterans For Congress on the Endorsement page of this Web site wish you a secure and Happy Fourth of July!!
