Iran nuclear deal

Trump is Right: Obama Monitored the Communications of Political Opponents

Having been caught in 2015 in what was a major breach of the laws governing collection of intelligence on what are referred to as “US persons” Obama didn’t cease and desist; he refined his techniques and deployed them against the Trump campaign and transition.

Obama’s Next Attack on Israel

Our take – supported by plenty of inside information – is that the upcoming Paris Summit is intended to endorse a “Palestinian” State and UN recognition before the January 20 inauguration of President-elect Donald Trump.

Mr. Outside and Mr. Inside at the Department of State?

The nomination of “Mr. Outside,” Rex Tillerson, as Secretary of State would mark the fulfillment of another important campaign promise by President-elect Trump. However, to fulfill his promise to drain the swamp at the State Department Donald Trump needs a “Mr. Inside.” Although it may be a difficult pill for some of our fellow non-interventionists to swallow, we can think of no one more qualified for that role than Ambassador John Bolton.

Iran Nuclear Weapons Deal A “Go” Corker and McConnell Betray America One More Time

Rather than take the path outlined by our friends Andy McCarthy and Ted Cruz to leave the sanctions in place, thanks to yesterday’s vote – forced for no reason by Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell – McConnell and Corker have effectively given the Iranian nuclear weapons program the go ahead and hobbled the next (hopefully conservative) President who might have been expected to try to undo the vast damage to our national security Bob Corker, Mitch McConnell and Barack Obama have inflicted.

Christie urges Booker, Congress to oppose Iran deal

The Iran nuclear agreement is a bad deal and Congress should vote to block it, including an undecided U.S. Sen. Cory Booker, Gov. Chris Christie said Tuesday as he stood alongside Jewish leaders.

After Nuclear Weapons Deal Iran Still A Radical Islamic “Republic”

The Obama fantasy that “engagement” and the deal to allow Iran to pursue its nuclear weapons program free of economic sanctions opens the door for the revival of Iran's pro-democracy movement has no basis in reality because the Islamic Republic is not a society where the majority yearns for a future based on Western consumerist values. We must defeat this dangerous deal. If you'd like to see who your Senator supports (Iran or America), you can check on the Secure America Now Iran Deal Scorecard through this link.

CHQ Endorsed Rep. Ron DeSantis: Congress Must Reject the Iran Deal

CHQ endorsed Congressman and U.S. Senate candidate Ron DeSantis (R-FL) called for Congress to reject the Iran Deal in an OpEd that appeared in Time Magazine. In the OpEd, DeSantis cited the fact that the Iran Deal would provide Iran with $150 billion in unfrozen assets and Iran’s history as the world’s biggest state sponsor of terrorism as reasons to reject the deal. The OpEd was co-written with Arkansas Senator Tom Cotton, who like Ron DeSantis served in Operation Iraqi Freedom and was also endorsed by CHQ.

Iran Inspections in 24 Days? Not Even Close

Hillel Fradkin and Lewis Libby, The Wall Street Journal

The Obama administration assures Americans that the Iran deal grants access within 24 days to undeclared but suspected Iranian nuclear sites. But that’s hardly how a recalcitrant Iran is likely to interpret the deal. A close examination of the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action released by the Obama administration reveals that its terms permit Iran to hold inspectors at bay for months, likely three or more.

Jason Rezaian, the Washington Post correspondent accused by Iran of espionage who has been imprisoned for more than 10 months, went on trial in a Tehran courtroom on Tuesday morning, state news media reported. The trial, which is not open to the public, began at 10:30 a.m. at Branch 15 of the Tehran Revolutionary Court, the semiofficial Tasnim news agency reported. Mr. Rezaian’s wife, Yeganeh Salehi, and a photojournalist also went on trial alongside Mr. Rezaian, according to the state news agency IRNA.

White House summit is no summit: 4 of 6 countries not sending top leaders

Anita Kumar, McClatchy Washington Bureau

Though the meeting is being billed as a summit – a meeting of top leaders – only two of the six Gulf counties will send their leaders, Qatar and Bahrain. Obama and representatives of the so-called Gulf Cooperation Council will meet Thursday to discuss a series of issues, including combating the Islamic State, the troublesome situations in Syria, Iraq and Yemen, and the deal struck by the U.S. and five other nations to limit Iran’s nuclear program.

Saudi King Skips Obama Meeting Over Iran Deal

Helene Cooper, New York Times

Saudi Arabia announced on Sunday that its new monarch, King Salman, would not be attending meetings at the White House with President Obama or a summit gathering at Camp David this week, in an apparent signal of its continued displeasure with the administration over United States relations with Iran, its rising regional adversary.

The Video On Iran’s Bomb You’ve Got To See: #NoIranBombBonus

Britain has informed a United Nations sanctions panel of an active Iranian nuclear procurement network linked to two blacklisted firms. Yet the Obama administration, desperate to get a deal - any deal - with Iran has been politicizing intelligence and hiding the facts of iran's nuclear weapons and missile programs from Congress and the American people. Please watch this powerful video from our friends at Secure Freedom and then tell your Senators and Representative #NoIranBombBonus.

Establishment Media Protecting Obama And Helping Iran Get Nukes?

There’s an interesting pattern developing in the establishment media coverage, or should we say non-coverage of the debate over Obama’s planned deal to allow Iran to acquire a nuclear weapon. The big dinosaur TV networks have persistently refused to cover or have given the absolute minimum coverage to anyone opposed to Obama’s dangerous deal with the radical Muslim state -- even turning down a half-million dollars in paid advertising that opposed the deal, but we've got the ad the networks wouldn't show you.

Netanyahu warns Congress: Deal will lead to Iranian nuclear bomb

Stephen Collinson, CNN

"We have been told that no deal is better than a bad deal. Well this is a bad deal. It is a very bad deal. We are better off without it," Netanyahu said, building a case that Iran was not just bent on developing nuclear weapons but was determined to "gobble" up defenseless countries in a wider play for dominance in the Middle East.

Netanyahu knows we can't trust Iran

The Orange County Register

The Obama administration wants Israel and the American people to accept – on faith – that Iran will be more compliant with the long-term nuclear agreement it is negotiating with the United States and the other five world powers than it has been with the short-term nuclear pact agreed to in 2013, and which it already has violated.
