As the World Burns

 

The Arab Spring started with the self-immolation of a vegetable barker over his frustrations with the insurmountable legal requirements and licensing which made making a profit impossible and expressed his feeling of utter hopelessness of his life in one blazing protest sparking a wave of protests which were to spread. The government of Tunisia fell within days followed by Egypt with an assisting push and a shove by United States President Obama pushing Egyptian President Mubarak out the door and all but guaranteed the Muslim Brotherhood would take control of Egypt. Little was known at the time that this had been the design by President Obama. The so-called Arab Spring rolled into Libya next and with a great amount of assistance from NATO powers Muammar Gaddafi was knocked from power almost solely due to the air strikes and other NATO assistance but the plan for any reconstruction failed leaving Libya broken into its tribal elements and some areas under the control of the influence of al-Qaeda and other areas under Islamic State with the rest under tribal control which may prove more stable a practice than the imposed state system from Sykes Picot, the one complaint made by ISIS before they decided to go on Jihad as the New Caliphate which had some degree of merit, but lust for power always overrules sensibility. The next stops were Yemen and Syria. These appear to be currently the play of power of Iran using Yemen to gain control of vital waterways off of southwestern end where the Red Sea exits into the Gulf of Aden and on into the Arabian Sea and Indian Ocean all through the choke point known as Bab-el-Mandeb which is the name of the straights with which Iran wrests control for all shipping traffic through the red Sea including Suez Canal traffic and sea traffic from Israel and Jordan coming south through the Gulf of Aqaba and the Red Sea on to Africa or Asia. Closure of this vital waterway would provide a causes belli of war should Iran block this waterway bringing Iran in direct contention of Europe, the far east and much of commercial shipping which would normally use the Suez Canal. Such a blockage could rapidly escalate out of control with nation after nation declaring their rights being challenged and commerce being directly affected adversely.

 

But the Arab Spring quickly became the Arab Winter as Egypt had a second set of massive demonstrations even larger than before which were more widely attended including students and businesspeople and others from nearly every walk of life which eventually led to the Egyptian military replacing the sitting government which had been on a fast track to implement Sharia, at least the interpretation of Sharia by the Muslim Brotherhood which they would have inevitably used to place themselves in the sole position of appointing the future Presidents and members of parliament thus giving themselves dictatorial powers. These new moves came to attempt to change the military hierarchy which was one step too far and the military balked and took down President Morsi and his government claiming to be doing so in the name of the people. Meanwhile there was a reshuffling of the Tunisian government to make it more representative of the people and guarding against trading the old dictatorial governance for religious dictatorial governance, a similar but less drastic measure than the one necessitated in Egypt. And the demonstrations began in Syria but unlike the previous demonstrations the one in Syria did not receive the full and hardy backing of the Western nations thus the peoples demonstrations slowly morphed into a disastrous civil conflict which itself morphed into a large Sunni against Shiite war front which spawned the Islamic State which took control over a sizeable area of Syria and Iraq. The latest development has been the introduction of serious air power and missile assaults by the Russians in defense of their naval base at Latakia, Syria and in support of their chosen ally, Bashir al-Assad and the introduction of IRGC troops, the special forces of the Iranian military.

 

Eventually the Egyptian governance worked its way to what all hope will be regular, open, free and fair elections on schedule with the results truly representative of the Egyptian electorate. Hopefully the same can be said for Tunisia which also appears to have settled from its early days as the lead of the changes which swept much of the Middle East and North Africa (MENA). There were also the unsuccessful or muted. The first were any demonstrations in Saudi Arabia or any of the nearby GCC countries such as Bahrain, Oman, United Arab Emirates, and Kuwait. There potentials for demonstrations in Saudi Arabia, where a number of Shiite Imams had given sermons to emotionally prepare their adherents to challenge the authorities, many ran out into the streets that fateful afternoon and looked up and down the street and realizing that they were cut off at the end of the block at both ends by security forces, armed so as not to need to discuss principles; so the Shiites calmed themselves and went home without incident in virtually every case and any case where the reaction was different was squelched so fast that it made no news. There was one exception which was Bahrain. Bahrain is ruled by a Sunni Monarch but is predominately Shiite and this led to street demonstrations of a severity which the Monarch was not willing to use the force which would have been required to put down the rioting demonstrators but also could not allow the lawlessness to continue. This required the King Hamad Ibn Isa Al Khalifa to make a call to his friends over the causeway in Saudi Arabia for assistance. The one thing known to the people of Bahrain that should the Saudis come to the rescue of their King, then they may have gone a bit too far and their time left to continue their actions is limited to as long as it takes the Saudi Arabian military to arrive to restore order. This was a particularly large demonstration which almost lasted four hours until they saw a disturbance heading towards the Island of Bahrain along all six lanes of the causeway between the Saudi Arabian mainland and their Island, three lanes in each direction, except this was all six lanes heading for the Island. As the vehicles came closer it became obvious these were Abrams tanks and Armored Personnel Carriers which meant that unremitting and lethal force was coming to their demonstration. This took the wind out of their sails and quickly the demonstrators dispersed rather quickly and peaceably with a small number of fools not heeding the obvious. They were quickly subdued and turned over to the Bahraini officials and the Saudis returned home a week or two later with a small rotation of forces remaining for a month or two as a reminder.

 

There were some rather sizeable demonstrations in Iran where pleadings were chanting for President Obama to assist their cries for freedom and representative governance. There was no reply from President Obama as he had this plan where he would be the one to bring Iran in from out in the cold through negotiations with the Supreme Leader. This plan had no room for new representative governance or for the people’s revolution. President Obama’s plan called for him bringing the previously unapproachable and immovable when it comes to that which he believes and the way he rules and the desires and directions he wishes to take the nation are completely unchallenged as his word is treated as if it were the words from Allah himself. This would eventually play out well after the demonstrators were routed by the Basenji Militias and other extreme police and security forces. The universities were put under a lockdown with security and Islamic observance groups patrolling the dorms and grounds. The end result was an additional term listening to the rantings of President Ahmadinejad, violently put down democracy demonstrations, and after a painfully extracted and pathetic set of surrenders which may or may not be finished and a nuclear treaty with a ruling elite who are not exactly known for keeping promises, meaning what they say or doing what they say or in the end having said what they said as everything is negotiable and even the meaning is open for an ever changing series of interpretations even to the point that what they say means exactly what they mean it to mean at the moment they say it. Deals with the mad hatter or Cheshire cat would be more trustworthy, and didn’t we decide that the President was a lookalike for the Cheshire Cat such that we labeled him Cheshire man as in the picture below. Perhaps that picture may be the closest thing to an accurate depiction of the reality dealt with in making the Iran Nuclear Deal.

The problems from the Arab Winter have just begun. The real problem is still a full generation away, a good fifteen years before everything begins to blossom and explode upon the Western world. Presumably, Iran will legally be capable of perfecting and testing ballistic missiles which will give them all the time they could possibly need as they will be completely free to produce, or should we say finally assemble the necessary parts to make their nuclear warheads using the technology perfected by their scientists or by following the methods used by either North Korea and thus be completely ready to produce deliverable warheads using such designs or be using their own designs, whichever way they decide to branch into nuclear warhead designs. Iran can take their time and while working on their nuclear warhead designs and production they can begin the hardest part of the challenge facing them, the proselytizing within and outside of the Islamic communities in Europe and the United States and other Western World Nations to drastically increase the numbers of Shiite Muslims more so amongst those living outside MENA though there will be some moves outside of the ardently Sunni states such as the GCC, Egypt, Jordan, and Turkey (though Turkey might be a more ripe for change than many believe). This will be accomplished with the monies freed up by the Iran nuclear deal and target the young who may find Shiite Islam’s dynamic Jihadi strengths more attractive than the more sedate Sunni Islam which is a more conservative approach.

 

The next three years will see between thirty-five-thousand and fifty-thousand “refugees” from MENA invading Europe and sending a fair number to the United States and Canada, especially if these nations remain under leftist control, especially the immigrations offices. Do not get me wrong, the majority, even the vast majority of these will be actual refugees as almost any family which can manage to get to Europe or the United States, the Western world, the first world, such a transit would be a welcome improvement in their lives as even the poorest family in the Western World live in a level almost unimagined other than for the wealthiest in their nations in much of the MENA world. Over the rest of the decade these refugees will likely repatriate with another ten to fifteen people per family. Eventually there will literally be an army ready to impose Sharia across all of Europe and there will be swaths of land in the United States which will be “no-go zones” just as they have in areas around many British, French, Swedish and other European countries where police and even fire and rescue personnel refuse to enter except in force, will populate many areas around numerous cities and training areas may be found in the countryside acreages around Europe and the United States. What many are unaware of is that there exist such training ‘cities’ outside numerous cities in the United States already and these ‘cities’ are well guarded and only allow Islamists known to their group and they hold firearms training and some even hold tactical training and live-fire exercises.

These are the stark realities facing Western Society which the governments are ignoring at their people’s own peril. Why these known camps are being left to their own devices while the FBI infiltrates neighborhood militias and paramilitary militias which often consist of some friends who are ex-military and enjoy target shooting and having paintball outings or even some which simply are reenacting Civil War or Revolutionary War battles. The future is not yet written in stone but it had been stenciled into wet cement and it is starting to dry and will take a while to cure thereafter but the stencils are still malleable, their final story will be up to the people if they decide to take government into their own direction and this may mean many people making whatever sacrifices are necessary and perhaps work for or make a needed new political party or influential branch of a party like the Tea Party had started to make inroads but it will take a long term commitment and it will take families deciding the time has come for regular families to take charge of the governments such that the governments will serve the future of the Western World and the family unit with an emphasis on control of the education of the children as they will be the future and if they are not better prepared than we were, then there will be even less hope, and hope is all there is right now and we cannot lose hope or our future.

President Obama Gains Treaty Passage Augmented by Iranian Slanders

 

Speaking to Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) soldiers Wednesday, Brigadier General Mohsen Kazzemeini exclaimed “They (the US and the Zionists) should know that the Islamic Revolution will continue enhancing its preparedness until it overthrows Israel and liberates Palestine.” Brigadier General Kazzemeini continued by proclaiming, “We will continue defending not just our own country, but also all the oppressed people of the world, especially those countries that are standing on the forefront of confrontation with the Zionists.” He was quoted further declaring the intentions of Iran and IRGC troops would continue their military interventions in surrounding countries supporting friendly forces in Syria, Iraq and Yemen.

 

Earlier Wednesday the Basij militiamen were on hand in Tehran to unveil a plaque with ‘100 insults’ towards America, with Iranians protesting outside the site of the former US embassy which included their intents against three main enemies of the moment by a display which also involved the public burning of Israeli, American and British flags outside the site. Ayatollah Mohammad Yazdi, the ultraconservative leader of the eighty-six clerics elected from a select group approved by the Supreme Leader and a committee of the most ardent supporters of the 1979 Islamist Revolution, Iranian media reported as declaring, the nuclear arrangement will not “change our foreign policy” nor will it affect or change the Iranian hatreds for the United States as their “our number one enemy, whose crimes are uncountable.” Ayatollah Yazdi was said to have claimed that, “The US and Israel are the source of the situation in the region and (their stated) goal is to protect the Zionist regime in the Middle East.” The Ayatollah was quoted further indicating the Iranian support for their forces fighting the conflicts caused by the United States and Israel in the conflicts in Syria, Iraq and Yemen.

Just last week as support for President Obama’s and Secretary of State Kerry’s negotiated nuclear agreement (read “Treaty” which is not to be treated as a treaty and thus requiring the passage and likely a veto override to terminate its implementation) climbed towards denying the enactment of the legislation, Iranian Parliament Speaker’s Adviser for International Affairs Hossein Sheikholeslam was quoted as saying, “Our positions against the usurper Zionist regime have not changed at all; Israel should be annihilated and this is our ultimate slogan.” Sheikholeslam rebuffed Hammond’s earlier declaration, “What we’re looking for is behavior from Iran, not only towards Israel but towards other players in the region, that slowly rebuilds their sense that Iran is not a threat to them.” Sheikholeslam further rebuffed Hammond for calling for past hostilities between Iran and Britain to be allowed to fade into the past declaring that Iran “will never forget the past and Britain’s colonialist moves.”

 

These and likely so much more that we are not learning about, due to media denial being almost as stupefying and stuck in rejection as the Administration, has been acting to deny even the most glaring misconceptions they have claimed about Iran. Where I do not deny that Presidential Chief Adviser Valerie Jarrett has deep family roots within Iran as she was born Persian (Iranian) though she was educated in the United States, there is little other than that and the selected excerpts attributed to her and used to fashion her as an Islamist ideologue. There also exist rumors pertaining to Mohammad Javad Zarif Khonsari, (Persian: محمدجواد ظریف خوانساری), the Iranian Foreign Minister and Lead Negotiator for Iran Nuclear Agreement, and Secretary of State John Kerry, the chief American and Senior Member and Spokesperson of the P5+1 delegation, were presumably invited and in attendance at a dinner party hosted by George Soros at his Manhattan penthouse over a decade ago. Who knows if they were seated next to each other or across the table or did they converse at any length during the entire evening or were they simple among the guests and had no ascertainable or significant interactions. Valerie Jarrett was intimated to have worked with George Soros or as one of the presiding members of George Soros’s Open Society or other interest. Read into these presumably damning connections or simply believe they were doing their parts in carrying out the orders from the Administration, in which they serve which may have come from wherever and whoever is in charge. Who knows the true interplay between Mohammad Zarif, John Kerry, Valerie Jarrett, George Soros and President Obama or even Michelle Obama and whoever else people have placed into the conspiracy soup and brought to a low roiling boil. The only thing that matters in the end are the terms of the <a=http://wp.me/PIou8-1RL target=blank>Iran Nuclear Agreement of July 14, 2015 Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action and any addendums and side deals accepted by the separate Parties or the IAEA.

There was an early declaration in which then Candidate and Senator Obama stated in speeches that his Administration would use diplomacy and spurn the use of military if at all possible. He also stated that he intended to have an outstretched and open hand reaching out to Iran in order to pull the Iranian governance into the family of nations. This was to end all the bad blood and isolation imposed through embargoes and trade isolation. Candidate Obama made sure that his primary foreign interest had nothing to do with Western nations, Israeli interests or their ability for defending themselves. He disregarded any of the previous situations the Bush Administration had bequeathed him starting with ending production of the F-22 Raptor stealth fifth generation fighter, the ultimate plane in that class, opting for the F-35 Joint Strike Fighter. Next President Obama reneged on the deal to place radar in the Czech Republic and anti-missile defense launcher in Poland offering in its place one Arleigh Burke Class Aegis Destroyer to perform the same defense as the land based system. The President promised to defend Islam from slanders and deridement while forcing an advancement of negotiations between Arab Palestinians and Israel by pressuring total capitulation and potentially complete surrender of all of Jerusalem and the connecting road and rail lines to Tel Aviv to the west.

There was one last target President Obama had placed constant and total commitment to bring Iran into the family of nations even if accomplished by bludgeoning the rest of the family of nations not only into accepting Iran but also to accept a fully nuclear armed Iran which has its tentacles reaching across the bottom of the Saudi Peninsula, to the Mediterranean Sea in Syria and Lebanon and also potentially holding all trade routes hostage because of where they can place mines and covered through use of artillery at the choke points in the Striates of Hormuz and the Bab-el-Mandeb. Iran, like Islamic State, has desires and designs to spread Islam, their own interpretation of Islam; Shia for Iran and Sunni for Islamic State. So none of this should come as the surprises the media is making them out to be. President Obama had a defined and distinct set of objectives and he has reached the near completion of his terms and intended goals and has certainly accomplished not only bringing Iran into the family of nations but also made for a great initiative to allow them to purchase all their little darkened hearts’ desire and still have more than sufficient funds to buy a few additional breeder reactors, centrifuges for a new clandestine enrichment and weapons plant rumored to be likely underneath south-central Tehran below a number of buildings including a medical campus with hospitals and clinics and a shopping mall, all of which which will have its entrance in a subbasement which will provide the necessary clandestine entrance.

 

President Obama has staked his domestic policy on remolding the United States into another European Union except that in President Obama’s system the entirety of policy comes from the President on all things unless he should face overwhelming opposition, namely the Congress being capable of preventing a veto clearing with two-thirds vote thus able to override any veto. There have been any numbers of people who claim that President Obama has destroyed by his complete disregard for the United States of America’s Constitution. That claim is not without merit but the Imperial Presidency is far from anything new as another President have ignored or actually nullified the Constitution by suspending habeas corpus in order to arrest people opposing President Lincoln. He had arrested the entire Maryland Legislature in order to prevent them from joining the Confederated States of America, aka the South or revolutionaries. In the case appearing before the Supreme Court known as Worcester vs. Georgia, where after the Supreme Court overturned the findings of the lower courts’ rulings, President Andrew Jackson reportedly responded: “John Marshall has made his decision; now let him enforce it!” Still, President Obama has appeared to have some of the most severe obstructions which bind the administration’s actions for as long as possible behind denials and cover-ups.

We will soon realize the fruits of the Iran nuclear decisions and feel some of the ramifications. If you thought Obama Care was a disaster, just imagine what Iran will be capable of with an anxious Europe to close business deals, and the Chinese and Russians attempting to get some form of financial relief for their economic doldrums, visualizing arms orders for them to fill for Iran that are worth hundreds of millions of dollars. Oddly enough the United States will not be receiving any orders from Iran for goods or services; they would rather enrich the Europeans who do not pose a military challenge to Iran. The Iranians are more likely to order items from Israel than they are the United States. There should be people on watch for any suspicious acts which may be the preliminary reconnaissance at very public places, especially baseball and football games as stadiums make a perfect target for nerve agents, especially if it is a heavier than air molecule which some of the most lethal have the lingering along the ground and in a stadium it would just linger around the lower deck and all the lower exit ramps just sitting their deadly, silent, colorless, odorless and fatal after two breaths which means after you have run fifteen to twenty feet you fall dead. This could be done by a group of terrorists who posed or actually run one of the vendor areas in the stadium such that they could bring in tanks of compressed agent colored to appear like regular CO2 and taking the select few to the top deck and sit them so the stream will tumble down the walkway and through the railings and start building up at field level. Yes, they would need to run their stand for six months or so before they could bring in a couple of extra tanks each week until they had sufficient for their attack. And do not get on us for giving them any ideas as if we can imagine such, they probably already ruled that one out as the risks outweigh the probabilities of success. Still, they will have the money to watch every movie and see the blimp attack that was foiled as the blimp reached the stadium, wasn’t the greatest story ever told, that’s for sure. But President Obama and his several mouthpieces, including the two biggest misadventures ever to grace a podium, Joe Biden and John F (for nothing) Kerry, will be out touting the great advantages and how they played Iran and really got them with their fabulous deal and restriction that when applied the Iranians will never see it coming and boy will they be caught with their pants down. Then they will try to make one of their surprises they claim were in the del and run right into Iranians holding guns and blocking the inspectors and everybody else at the airport and, if they are lucky, placing them right back on the plane before it leaves and if unlucky they will be given accommodations which do not quite live up to Holiday Inn Express accommodations. It will be fun as long as you miss all the fun.

It starts with the demonization of all who dare oppose President Obama and his obsessive claims of grandeur based on the presumption that President Barack Obama and Secretary of State John Kerry have avoided any possibility of war by bowing before Iran with the Iran nuclear deal known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPA) and the equating of Republicans with the Mullahs and those Iranian hardliners who chant “Death to America” and “Death to Israel” and any others as Israel Firsters and treasonous people putting Israeli interests ahead of those of the President and thus the United States. These claims that the only alternative to the JCPA Iran Nuclear Deal is war and that those opposing this wondrous plan as simply like those who sided with Israel to drag the United States into the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq. There are a number of historical errors in this argument that need refuting before going on to the real argument that President Obama is making and the presumed lies which many in the media and throughout the political environment, especially backers of the President, especially some far leftist or die-hard committed Democrat Jews.

 

First and foremost, neither Israel, Israelis or those who do hold fast to supporting Israel desired to draw the United States into any wars in the Middle East and especially into a war in Afghanistan. Perhaps President Obama was asleep or on an extended holiday somewhere where there is no news coverage of planet Earth on September 11, 2001 or he is simply using heated rhetoric to draw a contrast which makes all who oppose his Iran Nuclear Deal as foreign agents or those who would place foreign interests ahead of those of the United States. Perhaps if we were to investigate where President Obama stood on the United States involvement with the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq and the entire idea of bringing change to instill democracies instead of dictatorial powers in the Middle East first we could gain some insights. Candidate for Senate Barack Obama ran his campaign opposing the American presence in Afghanistan and Iraq as well as opposed to holding al Qaeda suspects at the prison on the Guantanamo Naval Base and when he ran for the Presidency a few years later he promised to end all three entities. Further, as President he ignored the advisings of the Joint Chiefs of Staff and almost all other military reports and intelligence and instead hurriedly pulled almost every American troop from Iraq which also saw every allies force pulled as well leaving a nation poorly suited and obviously not prepared or capable of maintaining its governance without an allied presence as a stabilizing force. The situation in Iraq was more tenuous staring failure in the face than were Germany and Japan at the end of World War II and those two nations to this day have a large contingence of American troops present within their borders though they no longer serve as the sole stabilizing force. Still, there are few calling for their being brought home as they are simply occupying those nations unnecessarily, though a better argument could be put forward for doing exactly that in reference to the troops in Japan and Germany. Additionally, after the attacks on the World Trade Center Towers, the Pentagon and the last plane being brought down by the passengers before it could be brought to its target suspected to have been in Washington D.C. and probably the White House or Capital Building that the United States needed no invitation to begin to chase the Taliban leaders in Afghanistan and all supporters of al-Qaeda also in the training camps in Afghanistan and where Osama Bin Laden had planned and trained the twenty hijackers for the September 11, 2001 attacks and thus start the war in Afghanistan. Further, Israel, if anything, was conspicuously absent from the coalition against Iraq and had Israel made any recommendations, they likely would have added removing the theocratic governance in Iran immediately after removing the sole check to Iranian designs on the entirety of the Middle East and North Africa, known as MENA in military jargon and as the Caliphate in historical and Islamic literature, Saddam Hussein in Iraq.

 

Further, any claims that Israel is attempting to draw the United States or anybody into a war in the Middle East is ludicrous as Israel had never in her history attempted to draw any Western nations or any other nations or entities into the Middle East and had stressed that any military actions necessitated for Israel’s protection will be undertaken by the Israeli Defense Force (IDF) and all she has ever requested is for those nations who have made promises to keep those promises. Unfortunately for Israel, there has been an ever increasing tendency for Western powers to forget their promises, treaties, agreements, letters of intents and even promises for armaments some of which whose precedent was Israeli promise to cease development and potentially building Israeli weapons systems and in exchange the United States promised to agree to favorable terms and complete support of all air requirements necessitated to give the Israeli Air Force (IAF) air-superiority over her neighbors and including equipment, upgrades, repair parts and systems and other necessitated arrangements such as where possible allowances for Israel avionics and targeting systems such that Israeli manufactured weapons systems could be adapted and used on such airframes. The United States had on its own volition as part and parcel of agreements to share intelligence and other mutually advantageous agreements to provide Israel with prompt resupply of armaments should her supplies and provisions grow depleted beyond a situation considered optimal for Israel’s defense which was dramatically not only neglected but intentionally and wantonly ignored, prevented and blocked all in an attempt to weaken Israel before her enemies who had breached the peace but for all intents and purposes the Obama Administration saw fit to scrap forty years of protocols and insert an additional step to what had previously been a military to military relationship requiring the State Department to sign off on all weapons and armament shipments to Israel after a review which resulted in what was obviously a new procedure instituted with the sole intent to deny Israel resupply while she was engaged in hostilities after coming under rocket attacks approaching a thousand rockets in the three days leading up to the Israeli incursion into Gaza to and their hostilities on the civilian population of Israel including rockets fired at Ashdod, Tel Aviv and Jerusalem. Yet now we are hearing that Israel is the evil party attempting to harm the relationship, understandings and alliances between the United States and Israel solely as an attack on President Obama by accusing him of dealing falsely in his negotiations with Iran that are placing both Israel and the United States in peril, remember that little thing about the United States as the Great Satan and Israel as the Little Satan along with chants led by the Supreme Leader himself of “Death to America” and “Death to Israel.”

 

The making Israel out to be the evil influence threatening the United States and attempting to topple the Presidency of the United States by interfering with the ratification of the nuclear deal with Iran is absurd. The claims that it is the hardliners in Iran and Israel who stand alone against this deal and are aiming to destroy the legacy of the President is equally absurd. And then comes the claims that the Israeli Prime Minister is acting out on his idea of the existence of a grudge match pitting the President as the evil entity when everybody knows that President Obama, as he has stated on numerous occasions even recently when pointing out how the Iran deal protected Israel unlike any previous agreement and was crafted with Israeli security in mind, has been the most stalwart and consistent friend Israel has ever had. The President has further pointed out that the only alternative, as Prime Minister Netanyahu has pointed out himself, to the JCPA, the Iran nuclear deal, is to go to war. Furthermore, there was the twisting of an invitation to address a joint session of Congress behind the President’s back working with an evil cabal of Republicans to work to marginalize President Obama and directly oppose the efforts of the President and instead instigate open warfare and the destruction of and semblance of order remaining in MENA nations. President Obama has pointed to all he has done and sacrificed and to how Benyamin Netanyahu has used every opportunity to upend and destroy their friendly relations the President has attempted to build between Israel and the United States.

 

Well, let’s try and set the records straight. President Obama is feigning ignorance of the spiraling out of control venomous spite and hatred he has shown Prime Minister Netanyahu accusing him of forming a relationship to try to assist Presidential candidate Mitt Romney to win the election and defeat the sitting President, White House spokespeople accused Prime Minister Netanyahu of consistently coming out in favor of Romney and all but actively campaigning for Romney. One can check the records and they will prove that Prime Minister Netanyahu refused to take sides in the election and admitted to having had friendly relations with Romney and with President Obama. The Israeli Prime Minister has done all within his powers to play nice-nice with the President and has received constant attempts to pull the rug from beneath the Prime Minister by making startling announcements such as the belief of President Obama that the 1967 lines (the Green Line or 1949 Armistice Line) as the basis for the Palestinian State right as the Prime Minister was boarding the plane for a state visit. The animosities and brusque treatments suffered by the Israeli Prime Minister which include but are not limited to being made to use the back service entrance to meet and leave from meeting with President Obama, the refusal to hold a joint press meeting after their talks for the first three years of President Obama Presidency, leaving the Prime Minister by announcing he was going to go and have dinner with his family and then instructing the Prime Minister of Israel to meet with Netanyahu’s advisors who were present at a working meeting and to call for the President when they had finally decided to acquiesce to the demands put forth by President Obama; the Prime Minister was reported to have sat stunned for a few minutes before gathering himself and leaving the White House discreetly. Add to the items, and they are legion, of slights, insults and interventions including using political advisors and other assets in an active campaign to unseat the Prime Minister during the Israeli elections, and it is amazing that the Prime Minister has not taken a more adversarial role with President Obama. Even when Prime Minister Netanyahu was invited to speak before a joint session of Congress and had alerted the White House where the Prime Minister’s office had spoken with a representative of the White House who had presumably gotten back with the Israelis affirming the visit and speech only to pretend that they had never been given any warning or been included in the invitation process and were in a pique and felt very insulted and refused to meet with the Prime Minister during the visit and no White House representative attended the speech basically pretending that the Prime Minister was persona non grata as far as the President was concerned.

 

But now things have gone beyond any pretenses of political gamesmanship and into the level of using blood libels and threatening to instigate waves of anti-Semitism across the United States should the JCPA be defeated by the Congress. The particular target of these slanderous and libelous accusations is a standout of traditional Democrat anchorage and a man whose patriotism and dedication to party are beyond question; well, until this past weekend. The politician in question is New York Senior Senator Chuck Schumer, a man who is in line to lead his Party in the Senate in the near future and well respected by many in the ranks of the Democrat Party and a go to Senator when the chips are down and influence and leadership are required. The problem is that this time around Senator Schumer has taken a position standing against President Obama, the leader of the Democrat Party, and against much of the power structure of the Democrat Party even if doing so might damage or even permanently end his position of power within the Party. Senator Schumer has placed a complete argument for his stance against the JCPA on his official pages titled My Position on the Iran Deal. As his explanation does include a reference to Israel as it is combined with Syria, Lebanon, Yemen, Iraq, and Gaza as all being targets for Iranian influence and its terror proxies. The paragraph reads as follows:

 

“In addition, we must consider the non-nuclear elements of the agreement. This aspect of the deal gives me the most pause. For years, Iran has used military force and terrorism to expand its influence in the Middle East, actively supporting military or terrorist actions in Israel, Syria, Lebanon, Yemen, Iraq, and Gaza. That is why the U.S. has labeled Iran as one of only three nations in the world who are “state sponsors of terrorism.” Under this agreement, Iran would receive at least $50 billion dollars in the near future and would undoubtedly use some of that money to redouble its efforts to create even more trouble in the Middle East, and, perhaps, beyond.”

 

 

Senator Schumer gestures his disapproval as being ‘this big’ as he tells President Obama that he will not be supporting the Iran Nuclear surrender, umm, I mean agreement.

The singling out of Senator Schumer is troubling in a number of ways. Perhaps the most of these troubling parallels are those which can be drawn between the assaults made against Senator Schumer and those in the infamous affaires de Captain Alfred Dreyfus where an innocent Jewish officer in the service of the French military was scapegoated as the traitor who had sold information to the Germans, a deed actually committed by one of the General Staff and a man of rank and high privilege and family. The accusations of treason were to find Captain Dreyfus guilty of treason and sentenced to life in prison of Devil’s Island in French Guiana. He was eventually released and even later cleared of all charges largely due to the efforts made by his wife Lucie and the works by Émile Zola of which his masterpiece proclamation “J’Accuse…!” pictured below with portrait of Émile Zola. The additional pictures are of Captain Alfred Dreyfus’s reinstatement and portrait near the end of his life and one depicting the cell used to keep Captain Alfred Dreyfus in solitary confinement not permitted to converse even with the guards outside and the Dreyfus Tower erected in his honor at a high point overlooking the Atlantic Ocean. Fortunately for Senator Schumer Devil’s Island has long ceased to be utilized as a prison but he can visit as it has been made into a tourist spot.

The depiction of Senator Schumer as being a turncoat, a traitor to his Party, a traitor to his President, and committing traitorous acts which will, according to those leveling both barrels on the Senator, bring his nation into a senseless and avoidable war. Senator Schumer has also been accused of basing his decision not on what would be good for his nation, not on what is possible instead of some perfect agreement which would only exist in some perfect world in a perfect reality, and worse still, sacrificing the young men and women who will have to fight this war all for a foreign nation, Israel. The singling out of Senator Schumer is not because he is casting a vote as a Democrat against the deal which, if we are to believe some mainstream media reports, a finely tuned and exquisitely worded document which had no loopholes, nor frayed edges and no strings dangling; it is a solid stand-alone agreement on limiting Iranian efforts to become a nuclear armed state which is so perfect that there is another whole deal which will supercede the stipulations in this deal with new stipulations in a secret deal which nobody has a right to view this part of the agreement and must simply take President Obama’s promises that it strengthens the original deal made by Secretary of State Kerry. The White House has not officially named who the team members were working to produce this super-secret agreement part deux. But it is Senator Schumer being targeted largely for obvious reasons, he is Jewish, he has a strong record of supporting Israel, he knows the Israeli Prime Minister, he has visited Israel more than once and even more than the President who is a self-proclaimed supporter and best friend of Israel who knows what is best for Israel more than the Israelis know what is good for Israel themselves which is also why the vast majority of Israelis have opposed the deal, confused yet? So, obviously Senator Schumer must be under the evil influences of those Israeli manipulators because the majority, even the majority in the opposition parties in the Knesset with their leader Labor Party Chairman Isaac Herzog met with Prime Minister Netanyahu and they shook hands, held a press briefing and both came out against the Iran Nuclear Deal.

 

Many pro-Israel nationalists, Zionists and others all oppose this deal, the JCPA, even to including many who voted for President Obama not just once but twice. There are so many items included within the known sections of the agreement that have little to nothing to do with Iran becoming a nuclear weapons armed state as they will be going towards that full steam ahead deal or no deal. The problems come in with the ability for Iran to purchase as many weapons in as many types, styles, uses, and complexity, Iran being permitted to procure and then produce full range rockets capable of carrying satellites into space and warheads to any point on the globe, they can purchase mid-range missiles, arm Hezballah, arm the Houthis in Yemen, arm Hamas if they return to their former friends modality after some Hamas leaders meet with the Saudis and expand their reach in Central and South America and probably place more agents and provocateurs in the United States and potentially return Bashir al-Assad to power while the United States flies air support for Iranian troops in Iraq against ISIS and the Iranians have already bought air defense systems from Russia, the S-300 anti-aircraft-and-missile systems, plus a few aircraft such as one-hundred-fifty Chinese Chengdu J-10 sophisticated jet fighters with Israeli avionics and finally, two-hundred-fifty highly-advanced Russian Sukhoi-Su-30MK1 heavy-fighter-bombers as well as one-hundred IL78 MKI tanker aircraft; or simply put, Iran is purchasing an entire air force. Iran can purchase almost whatever variety of weapons they desire with the huge inflow of ready and hard cash and as it is in dollars which may be losing a fair amount of its buying power so they will likely buy it all now.

 

What is there not to like about this great deal President Barack Hussein Obama and Secretary Jean François Kerry (spoken with a proper Parisian accent) have crafted over the last few years plus some indeterminate number of months, days, hours etcetera. They worked very hard with great fanfare meaning nothing to reach such an accord which will have little effect on Iran as anything Iran desires to include producing nuclear and thermonuclear warheads to their hearts’ content while the United States keeps calling for immediate inspections where suspicious activities have been detected by satellite pictures and other intelligence while the Iranians just continue doing as they please confident that there will be no unscheduled inspections. For there to be any inspection first one of the claimants, they are the United States, Iran, Russia, China, Great Britain, France, and Germany, can call for inspections which completes the initial step. Then Iran is petitioned and they can acquiesce or demand the committee decide if an unscheduled inspection is in order but if they are feeling particularly friendly the Iranians can skip the formalities and just allow the inspection. Should Iran demand a formal inspection then the committee of all of the P5+1 plus Iran and the European Union, how the European Union got in there is beyond me, I guess they just hung around and posed for so many pictures that it was simply taken for granted that they were also included somehow. The vote needs five of the eight votes in order for an inspection to take place but right off the top we realize that Iran will be voting against any inspections as will China, Russia. Let us further assume that the United States, Great Britain, and Germany all vote in favor. With the vote all tied at three to three and five votes required for a majority it makes the votes of France and the European Union to get vote in favor. We need to remember that even Germany is doubtful in reality once they build-up good trade relations and have lots of Euros invested then they are highly unlikely to vote against their cash cow. So even if only the French or the European Union vote against and snap inspection then there will be no inspection. So there will not even be snap inspections called and even if by some miracle there are five or more votes and inspections are called, then Iran can call for a delay of as much as twenty-four days and then another vote will end up being called for and such can happen that Iran might even delay a snap inspections plain and simple.

 

Due to all the shortcomings of the JCPA which have been made known to the public and the public by a margin of two to one the public opposes the deal. The troubling reality is that as many of those polled there was almost half who claimed to not understand enough about the JCPA to make an informed statement either way. One of the most interesting, in an unnerving sort of way, revealed when asking whether or not Congress should vote for or against the JCPA, the Iran Nuclear Agreement, they preferred professing ignorance rather than give an opinion by a wide margin. The totals were Just over 1-in-4 (27%) say Congress should vote to approve it while 1-in-3(32%) say Congress should not, as a plurality (41%) are not sure what Congress should do. There was also this Quinnipiac University poll conducted July 23-28 of 1,644 registered voters, 57 percent oppose the deal compared to 28 percent who support it, a margin of exactly 2:1 against the JCPA Iran Deal. How does the White House come out and claim that any members of Congress who vote against the deal are stooges under the control of Israel and the Jewish Lobby? What is their reasoning other than to get a rise out of the people who agree with President Obama when the deal gets rejected, he vetoes the Congressional vote against this JCPA and then when it returns to Congress they muster the few additional votes and override his veto, what then? Is it the President’s plan to then use his phone and his pen calling for a solution to the problem of unfair influence by those Jews who forced Senator Schumer and other Jews and those owned by Jew money and influence that is destroying his America and they must be stopped, is that the ball game Mr. President? Is the entire reason your nuclear surrender to Iran being voted down by anybody who took the time to read the deal all a Jewish conspiracy and now you want the Jews stopped from interfering with your plans to change the Middle East as well as the United States? Well Mr. President, Senator Schumer read the publically available parts of the deal and was as in the dark as the rest of the Congress and the American people who all object to your super-secret further deal where, for all the people of the United States and their representatives in the House of Representatives and the Senate know, you probably gave away the farm and half the cities or made some crazed deal that you would not even let Secretary Kerry see which just makes everyone that much more suspicious and made rejecting the deal with the devil and by a devil a deal America does not want. Is the only reaction you can fall back on is the Jews prevented your greatest achievement? That is where you are in error as the Jews who are Israelis did not, in overwhelming numbers, accept the horrific deal you made which sold them down the river along with the United States and many fear that the United States will go first and then Israel will be left to avenge the ninety percent of Americans who will likely die after the electrical grid, which everybody ignored its vulnerability, will perish before your nation can right itself and that will leave Israel to hold back Iran and we all have to pray she has sufficient ability or Western civilization is going to die in ruins. That is why those who have read the JCPA reject it and reject it vigorously. It is not a Jew thing but a thinking person’s thing just like your ObamaCare would have died had anybody been given time to read and debate it. Fool us once, shame on you, but fool us twice then shame on us. I’m sorry, Mr. President, this is a bad deal and, wait a moment, maybe I’m not sorry, maybe I am finally serious as I read the deal and so did many others and just like if we had read the Affordable Care and Patient Protection Act, all the over a thousand pages we would have rejected it, but now we can reject your plan for the surrender of the world to Shia Islam, we say no!
