This Thursday, Secretary of State John Kerry appeared at a hearing of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee concerning the Obama administration’s controversial arrangement to lift economic and other sanctions against the Islamic Republic of Iran in exchange for concessions in their nuclear program, a deal in which Kerry was ostensibly the chief negotiator.
One point of contention has been certain “secret side deals” contained in the agreement with Iran. Rep. Mike Pompeo (R-KS), said he had learned from the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) that there in fact were two “side deals” between Iran and the IAEA. On Wednesday, he stated that Kerry “confirmed that there were in fact side deals and he himself had not seen the agreement.”
Yet after Thursday’s hearing, Kerry said “there are no side deals.”
This was in conflict with statements made by National Security Adviser Susan Rice (the Benghazi Sunday news show serial liar). As reported by The Hill, Rice admitted on Wednesday that there are undisclosed “side deals” between Iran and the IAEA as Republicans alleged, but dismissed the idea that they were “secret.”
As they’ve been doing for some time, at the Senate hearing, Republican critics repeatedly suggested the administration’s negotiating team gave in to pressure from the Iranians and systematically capitulated to their demands.
“I believe you’ve been fleeced,” Committee Chairman Bob Corker (R-TN) told Kerry, claiming the deal opens a path for Iran to develop a nuclear bomb.
For the thousandth time: I am sick to death of Republican leaders refusing to acknowledge this criminal administration’s malicious intent, serial sabotage, and treasonous agenda. The longer Republicans mischaracterize the Obama administration’s actions as bungling, incompetent, inept, lacking leadership, weak, or out-of-touch, the more it appears that they are in collusion with the organized crime syndicate currently occupying the White House.
Barack Hussein Obama intends to make use of Iran in waging a proxy war against the nation of Israel which, as an Islamist (or at least an Islamist sympathizer), Obama loathes. Iran of course will be more than happy to serve in that role, once they have established a viable nuclear arsenal.
Earlier, INN featured one of my columns which included information provided by intelligence sources indicating that Obama was also attempting to enroll both China and Russia in this proxy war. In this instance, Israel’s recent discovery of enough oil and gas reserves in its territorial waters to put the Arab Muslim nations out of business factored largely, but given Obama’s Islamist affinities and his Hitlerian bent, he already had enough reason to wish Israel “wiped off the map,” as the Iranians have promised to do time and again.
Since 2012, it has been known that Obama’s pit bull, Iranian-born Senior Adviser Valerie Jarrett, had engaged in secret talks with Iran, essentially brokering the nuke deal ahead of formal negotiations. In November of 2013, the Times of Israel called the 2013 Geneva negotiations between Western powers and Iran a “facade,” because the terms of the deal had already been negotiated by Jarrett.
So, which is it? Are the majority of Republican leaders pants-pissing morons, or are they essentially Obama’s co-conspirators, merely offering ineffectual token opposition to the administration in order to save face with voters? Weakness, stupidity, or complicity are the only possibilities, and I don’t believe they are all that stupid or that weak. When nuclear war breaks out between Iran and Israel, do they plan to stand alongside their Democrat colleagues, shaking their heads and claiming what a horrible shame it all is, when in fact it is they who helped bring it about?
Further, has this been the case concerning every treasonous act or unconstitutional measure that Obama and his cronies have taken, from engaging in criminal machinations in order to get Obamacare passed, to using federal agencies to persecute private citizens, to planting Islamist operatives in the Department of Homeland Security and the Pentagon, to ignoring jihadi cells training within our borders, to arming Mexican drug cartels and Muslim terrorists, and orchestrating the 2014 illegal alien tsunami?
Have Republican leaders ignored or misrepresented all of these because they, like Obama, support parting America out like a clinically-dead trauma patient with an organ donor card?
If that’s the case, then they must hang for treason with all of those who helped to facilitate Obama’s rise to power and his treasonous, malevolent agenda.
