No traditional Memorial Day article from us. We can’t anymore. In the past few years we feel somewhat shameful on Veterans Day and Memorial Day as we see what Barack Obama and his gangster government have done to this country. So we can’t write rah-rah or solemn commemorative articles to cheer on Veterans or those who gave their “last full measure of devotion”. Not with Barack Obama as president.
Barack Obama chose this Memorial Day holiday period to insult Americans with his latest apology tour to Vietnam and Hiroshima. Lifting the arms embargo against Vietnam would have been the smart thing to do to counter China – but why make this announcement days before many Vietnam era soldiers remember their fallen friends? The Hiroshima nuclear attack was a horror – but the author of the horror was the Japanese Imperial Government, not the United States. Again, days before Memorial Day, with World War II veterans daily joining their fallen patriots into history, Barack Obama’s very presence in Hiroshima was an insult to all Americans and an especially brutal and ugly attack against those Memorial Day commemorates.
With Barack Obama’s accumulated horrors and insults in mind we thought today would be a good day to post good news – or what passes for good news when the name of the occupant of the White House is Barack Obama.
There is good news if you search for it. It’s not “good” good news exactly. But it’s “good” news in the sense that it could be worse. For instance, there is some potentially “good” news about gangster president Barack Obama’s Iran nuclear deal. The “good” news? Like ObamaCare, it is falling apart.
The really good news? Donald J. Trump is against the Iran nuclear deal and because of the rule of law the Iran nuclear deal is blowing up like Hiroshima.
First, Donald J. Trump:
The U.S.-led nuclear agreement with Iran last year was a deciding factor that compelled Donald Trump to jump into the race for president, the billionaire’s son, Eric Trump, said in a radio interview on Sunday.
“I think, honestly, the Iran nuclear deal was one of the things that made him jump into the race,” Trump told New York’s AM 970 The Answer radio. “I think that was a game changer for him.”
“That is when he finally said, ‘Kids, I am going to it. I am going to give this a real shot,’” Trump continued.
Donald Trump has been a vocal opponent of the Iran nuclear deal. At a February speech before the American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC), Trump strongly criticized against the agreement and stated that his “number one priority” if he takes office will be to nix “the disastrous deal with Iran.”
The interview with Eric Trump comes as the Obama administration has been facing mounting criticism over reports the deal was sold deceptively to the American public.
The controversy was sparked by an extensive New York Times Magazine profile of Obama’s Deputy National Security Adviser Ben Rhodes titled, “The Aspiring Novelist Who Became Obama’s Foreign-Policy Guru.” The article contains interviews with Rhodes and scores of top Obama administration officials.
The newspaper charged the Obama administration utilized a narrative that was “often misleading or false” to sell the Iran nuclear deal to the public.
Robert Malley, senior director at the National Security Council, explained the genesis and execution of the marketing plan to sell the Iran deal.
Malley said “experts” were utilized to create an “echo chamber” that disseminated administration claims about Iran to “hundreds of often-clueless reporters” in the news media.
Rhodes told Times reporter David Samuels that the marketing strategy took advantage of the “absence of rational discourse” and utilized outside groups, including the Ploughshares Fund.
Ploughshares, in turn, reportedly helped to craft talking points for a network of advocates, experts, and messaging specialists on how to frame Iran’s nuclear program while attacking opponents of dialogue with Tehran.
In a recent article, the Associated Press revealed Ploughshares has funded National Public Radio since 2005.
Think tanks funded by the Ploughshares Fund include the Arms Control Association, Brookings Institution, and the Atlantic Council, the AP reported.
Unmentioned by the AP is that the Ploughshares Fund is financed by billionaire George Soros’ Open Society Institute.
The good news above is that Donald J. Trump understands the seriousness of the Iran nuclear deal and will fight against it. Additional good news is how the truth about the Iran nuclear deal and the Obama gangster government continues to ooze out to the American public.
The really good news though is that Barack Obama’s gangster government Iran deal continues to hit the brick wall of the rule of law.
Barack Obama tried many gangster tricks to push through the Iran nuclear deal through the United States Senate. But Barack Obama failed to force the Senate to sell out Israel and the American people. The result was that finally Barack Obama’s gangster government was forced to join with the Iranian gangster government in an “executive agreement” which meant no change in American law. The Obama Iran Nuclear Deal was a pure gangster executive to gangster executive deal. Now, the rule of law has ensnared the gangster government of Barack Obama and the gangster government of Iran:
Why the Iranian Nuclear Deal Is at Risk of Unraveling
”As soon as we suspend our major sanctions,” Wendy Sherman, the lead U.S. negotiator, had said in 2014, “the world will flood into Iran.”
Today, nearly six months after the deal was implemented, Iran is still waiting for those benefits. The country can’t access most of the estimated $100 billion it holds in foreign banks. The reason: U.S. laws, which weren’t included in the nuclear deal, are still highly restrictive. The foreign business hasn’t materialized because big European and Asian commercial banks are afraid they might inadvertently violate those non-nuclear U.S. sanctions and end up facing hefty penalties. Tehran is angry and says Washington is preventing the country from rejoining the world economy.
Iran wants the U.S. to relax these sanctions, but that would require Congress to act, something unlikely to happen in an election year, especially since even some Democrats are in no mood to revisit a deal many considered flawed. If anything, lawmakers are pushing for more sanctions, this time as punishment for Iran’s ballistic missile program. In Tehran, hard-liners, who never liked the nuclear deal, are urging moderate President Hassan Rouhani to scrap it. “The political space is closing,” says Tyler Cullis, a legal expert on the Iran nuclear deal and U.S. sanctions at the National Iranian American Council, a group that advocates for closer relations between the two countries. “The danger now is that [President Barack] Obama is going to leave office in six months with his signature foreign policy achievement on very shaky ground.“
Rule of law bitches – deal with it. That’s what veterans and those we honor on Memorial Day fought for. Rule of law bitches – deal with it.
As with ObamaCare, Barack Obama’s gangster government thugs want to destroy the rule of law. But the rule of law will not go gently just because thugs threaten:
At a sit-down with Treasury Secretary Jacob Lew, Seif demanded more sanction relief. “They need to do whatever is needed to honor their commitments,” the Iranian banker told an audience at the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace, a Washington-based think tank. “Otherwise, the [nuclear deal] breaks up under its own terms.”
Probably the biggest source of friction is a U.S. law that bars Iran from using the U.S. financial system and the American dollar, even indirectly. The law, enacted in 2012, was aimed at punishing Iran for a variety of alleged sins: the country’s ballistic missile program, human rights abuses and state-sponsored terrorism. Because these issues haven’t been resolved, there is virtually no chance Congress would repeal the law in the foreseeable future, experts say. As long as that statute remains in place, foreign banks holding Iran’s funds in dollars will be wary of doing business with the country.
In April, Secretary of State John Kerry met with his Iranian counterpart, Mohammad Javad Zarif, in New York to try to resolve some of these issues. They reportedly agreed on an arrangement under which several European banks will process the transfer of roughly $6.4 billion worth of Indian oil payments to Tehran. According to Cullis, the Iran sanctions expert, the arrangement also will cover the transfer of Iran’s oil revenues locked up in Asian banks. It’s not clear, however, whether Iran will receive the money in dollars or some other currency.
The Obama administration insists U.S. law isn’t standing in the way of foreign banks doing business with Iran in other currencies—provided they aren’t dealing with sanctioned Iranian groups, such as companies linked to the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC). Over the past few weeks, Kerry and other U.S. officials have spread out across the globe to help foreign bankers understand the maze of Iran sanctions and clarify potential penalties. “It’s just not as complicated as some people make it,” Kerry told reporters in London on May 10.
But so far, major European and Asian banks haven’t been mollified. Many have asked for clear guidelines from Washington so they don’t find themselves facing penalties like the nearly $9 billion fine that the French bank BNP Paribas paid in 2014 for violating U.S. sanctions against Iran, Sudan and Cuba. U.S. officials won’t provide specific guidelines, saying instead that if banks have a question, they should direct it to the U.S. Treasury’s Office of Foreign Assets Control, the federal agency that oversees sanctions.
Experts say foreign banks are reluctant to engage with Iran for other reasons too. They cite Tehran’s outdated laws governing money laundering, as well as its lack of prohibitions against terrorist financing and corruption. “Because of a lack of transparency, it would be hard to have certainty that you’re not dealing with someone subject to sanctions or engaged in illicit activity,” says Katherine Bauer, a former Iran specialist at the Treasury Department.
Obama gangster government thugs like Lew and Kerry want to circumvent the rule of law with currency schemes to aid the Iran gangster government. Lew, Kerry, and the Obama gangster government won’t provide the “specific guidelines” to the banks because such guidelines would not mask, but rather expose, the lies Obama and his gangster government continue to spew. Lew, Kerry, and the Obama gangster government want the banks to engage in duplicity with the Treasury Department’s Office of Foreign Assets Control in order to avoid transparent “specific guidelines” which would expose the lies Obama’s gangster government wants the banks to believe.
There is another reason why the Obama gangsters such as Lew and Kerry want to keep away from public “specific guidelines” and instead engage in secret talks with Iran’s gangster government. That reason is Donald J. Trump:
As Tehran waits to see if the administration can ease the banks’ concerns, opponents of the nuclear deal have been as voluble as ever. Donald Trump, the presumptive Republican presidential nominee, calls the agreement “disgusting” and the negotiators who crafted it “incompetent.” [snip]
Meanwhile, an influential lobby, United Against Nuclear Iran, is leading a major campaign to discourage European companies from doing business with Tehran, warning they could end up violating the remaining sanctions. On Capitol Hill, in addition to the push for further measures—a move experts say could torpedo the accord—some lawmakers are pressuring Boeing to pull out of a reported deal to provide Iran with passenger jets and other services. “We urge you not to be complicit in the likely conversion of Boeing aircraft to IRGC warplanes,” the lawmakers wrote in a letter to Boeing CEO Dennis Muilenburg in May. And in one more blow to Iran, American pistachio growers convinced the administration to slap a 200 percent tariff on Iranian pistachios, effectively eliminating them from the U.S. market.
Friends of Israel should contact Boeing CEO Dennis Muilenburg.
Those who today honor the fallen on Memorial Day should also contact Boeing CEO Dennis Muilenburg.
Honor with respect our veterans and the fallen this Memorial Day. Then tomorrow fight against the Obama State Department government of thugs:
“Clearly it was expected that Iran would get an economic benefit from this deal,” said Douglas Maag, an attorney who specializes in trade sanctions at Clyde & Co, an international law firm. “They’re not getting that benefit because of the unexpected fact that the European banks won’t do business with them.”
On Thursday, the US Department of State joined the governments of France, Germany, and the UK in issuing a statement that fell just short of imploring European banks to conduct business in Iran in order to help its people and preserve the pact — a bizarre turnabout given the rocky relations between the US and Iran over the years.
“We will not stand in the way of permitted business activity with Iran, and we will not stand in the way of international firms or financial institutions’ engaging with Iran, as long as they follow all applicable laws,” the statement read. “We understand that firms may continue to have specific sanctions-related questions or concerns about doing business in Iran, and we stand ready to provide expeditious clarifications. We encourage firms to approach our governments to address remaining questions, rather than forgo opportunities due to misperceptions or lack of information.”
Take off the bunting of Memorial Day tomorrow and pick up the fight against Obama gangster government.
That the Iran deal is falling apart, like ObamaCare, is good news. Treachery on Iran and Muslim terrorism was a big promise from Barack Obama to the left. That promise is falling apart, to some extent, and that is good news.
Another Obama promise that goes right to the heart of Obama’s gangster government was race-baiting America for fun and profit. There’s good news on that front as well. The good news comes via rapper Snoop Dog:
Snoop Dogg Asks Fans to Boycott ‘Roots’: “Let’s Create Our Own Shit Based on Today”
“They going to just to keep beating that shit into our heads about how they did us, huh?” the rapper says.
Snoop Dogg has no plans to watch the Roots remake, and he’s telling his fans to also boycott the show.
The rapper sent out his message over social media on Monday.
“I’m sick of this shit. How the f— are they going to put Roots on, on Memorial Day?” Snoop said in an Instagram video. “They going to just to keep beating that shit into our heads about how they did us, huh?”
The History channel’s revival is a four-part, eight-hour series that debuts Monday.
Snoop said he has no interest in new shows and movies — specifically mentioning 12 Years a Slave — that “keep showing the abuse we took hundreds and hundreds of years ago.”
“I ain’t watching that shit, and I advise you motherf-—ers as real n— like myself; f— them television shows,” Snoop said. “Let’s create our own shit based on today, how we live and how we inspire people today. Black is what’s real. F— that old shit.”
Snoop Dog is right. Barack Obama continues to race-bait for fun and profit but now black men like Snoop Dog are tired of the race-baiting.
Memorial Day has no skin color requirement. A fallen soldier is honored for his or her sacrifice not because of their skin color.
The new “Roots” was made for the Black Lives Matter race-baiting brigade. LeVar Burton and Valerie Jarrett continue to race-bait alongside race-baiter in chief Barack Obama. The new “Roots has been cleansed of “good” white people. Only bad white people in this “Roots”. The new Black Lives Matter Roots race-bait movie is celebrated at the White House in a bit of irony these race-baiters don’t understand.
Snoop Dog is right to boycott the new Black Lives Matter Roots. Black people today should reflect on the reality of today not turn Memorial Day into Race-Bait day.
Obama and his gangster government understand that race-baiting cows white people into submission in any debate. Snoop Dog understands that there is another side to the race-baiting. Obama style race-baiting as exemplified by the new Roots leads to black people feeling inferior and that things will never change. A black child constantly shown images of black oppression and white superiority is damaged – not empowered. Snoop Dog says ‘fu*k all that’. The gangsta calls out the gangster government and those that continue to sell the myth that long ago slavery is responsible for the problems of poverty and class in America today.
Sic ’em Snoop!
We think that’s good news. There’s one last bit of “good” news from us.
The last bit of “good” news from us is what we wrote in our first article of this year:
We have no doubt that 2016 will be a horrid year. We do not doubt that Barack Obama, like a wounded animal thrashing about, will continue his attempts to rip the Constitution and the fabric and future of the country. We also do not doubt that the next president, to be elected in 2016, will not merely “occupy” 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue but inhabit the White House with a commitment and love for America’s highest ideals and love for the nation and all its people. But first we will have to survive Obama’s last mile. We will survive, then thrive.
On Wednesday, May will be gone – it will be June. Six months of this horrid Obama last year almost gone. Six months gone. Soon there will be a new president and America will be great again. That’s good news.
