On this afternoon’s radio show, Rush opined that one of the main (if not THE main) reason the Obama Shadow Regime is working so hard to bring down Donald Trump is the fact that Trump plans to void the Iran Nuke Deal. And in the process of doing so, the details of this treacherous and traitorous deal may become public, and the American electorate will become infuriated, thus ending Democrat hopes of returning to power anytime soon, and voiding a major chunk of the Brown Clown’s “legacy”.
The known details of the “crowning diplomatic achievement” of King Putt and Little Prince Kerry are bad enough. The deal includes six yuuge benefits for a nihilistic, theocratic state, according to the Washington Times’ 12 July 2016 article by Robert Spencer (of Jihad Watch fame). These are:
1. The expiration dates: While the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), as the agreement is called, does include real restrictions on Iran’s nuclear activities, these are all slated to expire within a period of years. The agreement anticipates the “conclusion of consideration of the Iran nuclear issue by the U.N. Security Council 10 years after the Adoption Day” — that is, the adoption of the agreement itself on July 14, 2015. It contains stipulations such as this: “There will be no additional heavy water reactors or accumulation of heavy water in Iran for 15 years.” What about after that? The agreement doesn’t say. Apparently, at that point anything goes.
2. The delay in inspections: The day after the conclusion of the JCPOA, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu observed: “Iran has two paths to the bomb: One if they keep the deal, the other if they cheat on the deal.” They can get the bomb even if they keep the deal because the JCPOA contains the provision that Iran can delay requested International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) inspections for up to 24 days — ample time to clean up for the inspectors.
3. The removal of sanctions: Even before the deal, it was questionable how effective the economic sanctions that the United States and U.N. had placed upon Iran really were: In March 2015, Thomas Erdbrink, Tehran bureau chief of The New York Times and longtime resident of Iran, remarked, “As the politicians are talking for months to end the sanctions, my shopkeeper tells me he has more foreign products for sale than ever.”
Nonetheless, the JCPOA is quite definite about removing all economic sanctions on Iran. This included the removal of sanctions that had originally been intended to be removed only when Iran definitively gave up its nuclear program; now the Islamic Republic was being given sanctions relief and allowed to continue its nuclear program, only with certain restrictions that would all eventually expire anyway.
4 The lack of any consequences for breaking the agreement: The 159-page Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action goes into tremendous detail about the Iranian nuclear program and how it is to be temporarily restricted in various ways. It also expatiates at length on exactly which sanctions are to be removed. But it is conspicuously lacking in specifying penalties for Iran’s not holding to the agreement. There is vague talk about the sanctions being reimposed — but once money held in the sanctions is given to Iran, it cannot be recovered.
5. Americans will not be allowed to inspect Iran’s nuclear sites: On July 30, 2015, Iran’s Deputy Foreign Minister Abbas Araghchi pointed out, “American and Canadian inspectors cannot be sent to Iran. It is mentioned in the deal that inspectors should be from countries that have diplomatic relations with Islamic Republic of Iran.” IAEA inspectors, he added, would not be given access to “sensitive and military documents.”
In an interview with Al Jazeera the following day, Ali Akbar Velayati, a senior adviser to Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei, further broadened these restrictions to apply to other signatories to the deal as well: “Regardless of how the P5+1 countries interpret the nuclear agreement, their entry into our military sites is absolutely forbidden.”
6. Iran can inspect its own sites: On Aug. 19, 2015, the Associated Press dropped a bombshell. Confirming rumors that had circulated since the agreement was signed, it reported that a secret side deal between the IAEA and Iran allowed the Iranians to conduct their own inspections of their own sites:
“Iran, in an unusual arrangement, will be allowed to use its own experts to inspect a site it allegedly used to develop nuclear arms under a secret agreement with the U.N. agency that normally carries out such work.”
What could possibly go wrong?
Other than Infowars, there is no American media source of information as to the hidden contents of this deal — King Putt’s allies in the MSM have seen to that. So I decided to look to the UK media, specifically the Independent, the Times, and (for balance) the Guardian. Lo and behold, I found one clue, and it is in this 14 July 2015 statement from the leftist Manchester Guardian:
“Credit goes to the tireless US secretary of state, John Kerry, but also to America’s partners: Germany, France and Britain, including the former European high representative on foreign affairs, Baroness Ashton, and, in spite of tensions over Ukraine, also to Russia, and, to a lesser extent, China.”
Does the Iran deal include guarantees from the politically-correct Euro-weenie-leftist governments of Germany, France, and Britain to accept millions of “refugees” from Islamic nations — “refugees” who are all military-aged males intent on waging jihad? Does the Iran deal also include a promise from The Puttster himself to accept a certain number of millions of “refugees” to the United States? If so, what’s the quid pro quo due from Iran?
But there is a second, bigger clue, one that goes well beyond advancing Islamism across the western world. And as usual, it comes from following the money. Last month, Bloomberg detailed a multi-billion dollar deal between Russia’s Gazprom and the Iranians to exploit Iran’s hydrocarbon resources, which are the lifeblood of the Iranian economy. According to this 13 December 2016 article, OPEC has lifted production restrictions on Iran, in concert with the influx of Russian money, to facilitate production increases.
What would be the Arab objective, and how could it harm the US? Most likely, it is to flood the global market with supply, to drive down wellhead prices, and to bankrupt America’s fracking effort by coming into the market below American production cost. We all know that, especially in LNG production, American fracking has been eating OPEC’s profit margin lunch. The sons of the desert, having spent the past few hundred years developing ZERO industrial and economic alternatives to oil and gas sales, cannot tolerate this. Horrors: They might not be able to afford new Bentleys and all those Boeing F-15s….
This writer believes that all but the most incurable leftist asshats in the American electorate would be infuriated if either (or both) of these lines of thought are correct. There are several hot buttons here: Resettlement of “refugees” without prior public approval; sale of advanced American military weaponry to a known enemy; and enrichment of both the Iranian terror regime and the Russian state at the cost of American energy independence. What do YOU think?
