Iran’s President Rouhani claims there is no way Trump can reverse nuclear deal

posted by Christopher W. Holton

President-elect Trump made it clear throughout his campaign that he believed that the Iran nuclear deal was one of the worst deals he had ever seen. However, he was mostly silent on the issue in recent months. Hopefully he will renew his intention to end this dangerous deal…

Iran’s President Hassan Rouhani said Wednesday there was “no possibility” of its nuclear deal with world powers being overturned by USA president-elect Donald Trump despite his threat to rip it up.

Reuters lies about the Iran Nuclear Deal

Reuters-Blog-Hacked-Fake-Syria-Article-Published-2

By Christopher W. Holton

Carefully read the article linked below from Reuters and compare it to the horribly misleading headline.

Here’s the headline:

Iran’s Khamenei conditionally approves nuclear deal with powers

Now read this important passage from the article:

“Any comments suggesting the sanctions structure will remain in place or (new) sanctions will be imposed, at any level and under any pretext, would be (considered by Iran) a violation of the deal,” Khamenei said

Here is the truth that Reuters so desperately tried to conceal from the public. The reality is that there is NO nuclear deal with Iran because the two sides disagree completely on what the so-called “deal” includes:

Iran’s Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, who is the ONLY power that counts in the Islamic Republic of Iran, announced that Iran will only observe the nuclear deal with the West if it is given blanket immunity on its sponsorship of terrorism and human rights violations. Any sanctions, Khamenei declared, placed on Iran for any reason would violate the agreement and render it null and void.

This is actually encouraging since many US states plan on pushing forward with Iran divestment.

In a letter to President Hassan Rouhani, Khamenei wrote, “Any comments suggesting the sanctions structure will remain in place or [new] sanctions will be imposed, at any level and under any pretext, would be a violation of the JCPOA.”  This would include sanctions on Iran for its support for terrorism and human rights violations.

The Obama administration has insisted that the accord would only result in the lifting of nuclear-related sanctions, that other sanctions would remain in place, and that additional sanctions relating to Iran’s support for terror and human rights violations could be imposed on Iran.

This clearly demonstrates that there is in fact NO nuclear deal, no “agreement,” since the two sides can’t even agree on what is in the so-called agreement.

In August, President Obama said, “We will continue to have sanctions in place on Iran’s support for terrorism and violation of human rights.” In a hearing before the Senate Foreign Relations Committee in July, Secretary of State John Kerry assured Congress: “[W]e will not violate the JCPOA if we use our authorities to impose sanctions on Iran for terrorism, human rights, missiles or any other non-nuclear reason.”

What all this boils down to is that the Reuters headline is a lie…

Peace in our Time: The April Fool’s Accord–John Kerry’s “Finest Hour”?

kerry-chamberlain

It only seems so appropriate. John Kerry’s Iran nuclear negotiations have been extended to April Fool’s Day.

This latest in a series of extensions came after the Iranians once again played Kerry like a Stradivarius by hardening their position and threatening to deny Barack Obama and John Kerry their “Peace in Our Time” photo op.

So after years of one-sided “negotiations,” the crack Obama-Kerry negotiation braintrust grants yet another extension to the world’s foremost state sponsor of Jihadist terrorism over its already designated illegal nuclear program. (That point is important, namely that Iran is enriching uranium in violation of international law and is out of compliance with international nuclear protocols.)

Cartoonist Gary Varvel: John Kerry as Neville Chamberlain

This latest development shows what a dangerous clown show these negotiations are. Time is on the Iranians’ side. They have been playing this game at the negotiating table for years now. Even the French recognize this.

Obama eased sanctions on Iran and what have we received in return? Not a damn thing.

Obama and Kerry seem desperate to talk for the sake of holding talks, as if that accomplishes something. It only accomplishes something for the Iranians. They have benefited materially from these talks.

neville-obama

There is an old saying that goes something like this: “If they’re talking to you, they aren’t shooting at you.”

That saying isn’t true at all of course.

Just as the Japanese used talks as cover for their planned sneak attack on Pearl Harbor, the Iranians are using talks as cover for building The Bomb.

Allowing Iran to obtain nuclear weapons by any means is a catastrophe. In fact, it’s the biggest national security catastrophe of the post-Cold War world.

Future generations will ask, “How did they ever let it happen?”

The answer will come in the form of two historical villains:

Barack Obama and John Kerry.

Truman National Security Project Shilling for Ayatollahs for Political Purposes

There has seldom been a more shameful example of Leftist useful idiocy than this new story about the Truman National Security Project essentially shilling for Iran.

What it shows is that the Truman National Security Project isn’t about national security at all. It’s all about partisan politics.

Just as further review has shown that the Soviets had thoroughly penetrated and made use of Leftist institutions in the US during the Cold War, it now appears that the Iranians can depend upon the same kind of collaboration from Leftist policy wonks today.

If you’re a member or supporter of the Truman National Security Project you now must face the reality that you have supported the regime in Tehran.

A leading Democratic think-tank has been quietly waging a media war on behalf of the Obama administration’s Iran diplomacy since at least the early summer, according to previously undisclosed documents that accuse congressional skeptics of being un-American warmongers.

Details of the Truman National Security Project’s campaign to sell the public on an Iran deal before it has even been signed comes just a day after the Washington Free Beacon revealed more recent emails from the group enlisting its associates in an “all-hands-on-deck effort to support” the White House’s diplomacy with Iran.

No Surprise Here: Iran still seeking nuclear arms, says MEK

A leading Iranian opposition group reports that the Islamic republic is still working on atomic weapons at installations that were relocated to evade detection.

The Mujahedin-e Khalk, or MEK, cited anonymous sources inside the regime. According to the Times of Israel, MEK reports that Iran’s Organization of Defensive Information and Research, or SPND, moved its most sensitive weapons research to a new Tehran location “in recent months.”

Mohsen Fakhrizadeh,  an Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) brigadier general, heads the SPND.
