Iran Deal – Can You Have a Deal When Both Sides Don’t Agree on the Terms?

Published

on

So the big foreign policy deal with Iran that the Obama administration (and their allies in the media) has been pushing for may actually be one BIG farce. And I don’t mean because it’s a bad deal (though it is a bad deal). I mean that it may be one big farce because while team Obama and the media have been hailing this “historic” deal… it sounds more and more like Iran and the USA didn’t actually agree on a deal.

I kid you not.

Iranian Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei said on Thursday he neither backed nor rejected an interim accord with six world powers on Tehran’s disputed nuclear program but demanded all sanctions be lifted immediately once a final agreement was concluded.

He added in a televised speech that the details of the accord would be decisive, and the publication of a US fact sheet showing terms that were at variance with the Iranian view of the agreement showed “devilish” US intentions.

“I neither support nor oppose it,” he said. “Everything is in the details; it may be that the deceptive other side wants to restrict us in the details.”

“The White House put out a statement just a few hours after our negotiators finished their talks…this statement, which they called a ‘fact sheet’, was wrong on most of the issues.”

 

And here he is reiterating that no deal will be struck unless every single sanction against Iran is lifted on the day the deal is signed. The lifting of every single sanction does not seem possible, or even plausible. If that is a hard line, I doubt any deal can ever be struck, unless President Obama is willing to literally give the Iranians everything they want at the expense of our allies and even our own national security.

 

 

So, is there a deal or not?

Maybe it’s just the lying terroristic Iranian regime blowing smoke to make it seem like they’re the tough guys on the block…

Or maybe it’s the Obama administration that has been lying to us?

A new piece on the deal with Iran in the New York Times makes it sound like it might be the Obama administration that is doing the lying.

A careful review shows that there is considerable overlap between the two accounts, but also some noteworthy differences — which have raised the question of whether the two sides are entirely on the same page, especially on the question of how quickly sanctions are to be removed. The American and Iranian statements also do not clarify some critical issues, such as precisely what sort of research Iran will be allowed to undertake on advanced centrifuges during the first 10 years of the accord.

obama iranObama administration officials insist that there is no dispute on what was agreed behind closed doors. But to avoid time-consuming deliberations on what would be said publicly, the two sides decided during Wednesday’s all-night discussions that each would issue its own statement.

American officials acknowledge that they did not inform the Iranians in advance of all the “parameters” the United States would make public in an effort to lock in progress made so far, as well as to strengthen the White House’s case against any move by members of Congress to impose more sanctions against Iran.

“We talked to them and told them that we would have to say some things,” said a senior administration official who could not be identified under the protocol for briefing reporters. “We didn’t show them the paper. We didn’t show them the whole list.”

The official acknowledged that it was “understood that we had different narratives, but we wouldn’t contradict each other.”

No sooner were the negotiations over on Thursday, however, than Mr. Zarif posted to Twitter a message that dismissed the five-page set of American parameters as “spin.”

In an appearance on Iranian state television Saturday, Mr. Zarif kept up that refrain, saying that Iran had formally complained to Secretary of State John Kerry that the measures listed in the American statement were “in contradiction” to what had actually been accepted in Lausanne.

So when’s a “deal” not really a “deal”? Apparently it’s anytime the Obama administration is involved and wants to make sure that they save face… no matter how many lies they have to tell.

Conservative Host Dan Bongino Tells Fans a Tumor Has Been Found in His Neck

Popular conservative commentator and former Secret Service Agent Dan Bongino has told fans that doctors have found a tumor in his neck.

Popular conservative commentator and former Secret Service Agent Dan Bongino has told fans that doctors have found a tumor in his neck.

The commentator said that doctors are not yet sure if the tumor is cancerous, but there is s “strong likelihood” that it is not.

“It’s a tumor, but there’s a strong likelihood that it is not cancerous,” Bongino on Rumble, a platform he recently bought a stake in as a response to YouTube censorship.

“We don’t know what it is. It’s in a very weird spot in my neck near my carotid artery, near vocal cords and things, and it is big. It’s 7 centimeters … It’s scary,” Bongino continued.

“I noticed when I came out of the MRI machine that the look on the doctor’s face changed a little bit as he told me in the room inside that it is not a lipoma,” Bongino said fighting back tears. “Which was very scary.”

He thanked his wife and doctors but insisted that his show would go on.

“We have two lives,” Bongino said, quoting American novelist Bernard Malamud. “The life we learn with and the life we live after that, and the genuine path to happiness is through suffering.”

Immediately, a long list of high-profile personalities wished the commentator well:

Portland Black Lives Matter Rioters Threaten to Burn Down House Displaying U.S. Flag

Published

on

“Protesters” in Portland threatened to burn down the home of a black Army veteran because he dared to have an American Flag flying outside his home.

Terrance Moses, a black veteran who runs a nonprofit in Portland, said he stepped outside his front door when protesters began carousing down the street in his neighborhood.

“It went from a peaceful march, calling out the names, to all of a sudden, bang, ‘How dare you fly the American flag?’” Moses told the New York Times. “They said take it down. They wouldn’t leave. They said they’re going to come back and burn the house down.”

“We don’t go around terrorizing folks to try and force them to do something they don’t want to do,” he added. “I’m a veteran. I’m for these liberties.”

The couple that displayed the American flag on their Kenton-area home said they were “fearful of retaliation from the roving protesters, who had found their phone number,” according to the Times. Despite that, they are refusing to take down the American flag.

“I will not take my flag down,” he exclaimed.

The paper added that the group of protesters also once again set fires and rioted in the city’s commercial district.

The same night the protesters came to the couple’s door last month, they marched into Kenton’s commercial district and used restaurant picnic tables as fuel for fires. They collected the colorful wooden dividers the neighbors had recently built for outdoor dining and set those ablaze as well. Mr. Moses and others in the community ran into the protests with fire extinguishers.

Protesters that night broke into the Portland Police Association building and set it on fire. A man was later seen scrubbing the sidewalk graffiti — a popular message was “PPB = KKK,” meaning that the Portland Police Bureau is the Ku Klux Klan.

The Black Lives Matter movement is little else but a domestic terror organization.

Democrat Lois Frankel Demanding Big Tech Ban Opponent Laura Loomer’s Ads in Blatant Case of Election Interference

Corruptocrat Rep. Lois Frankel is demanding that big tech ban the ads of election opponent, Laura Loomer, in a clear case of illegal election interference.

Published

Corruptocrat Florida Rep. Lois Frankel is demanding that big tech ban the ads of election opponent, Laura Loomer, in a clear case of illegal election interference.

Frankel and her surrogates are urging Google, Facebook, Twitter, and the rest of the usual Big Tech suspects to ban Loomer’s ads so that she will be less competitive in the race for Congress for the incumbent Democrat in Florida’s 21st District seat.

 

The Loomer campaign struck back at Frankel for calling for censorship and big tech electoral interference.

“Judging from recent public statements, Lois Frankel can’t seem to bring herself to say the name of her opponent, Laura Loomer. According to the Jewish Telegraphic Agency, she either mispronounces Loomer’s name or can’t remember it at all when asked. Frankel, who admits she hasn’t had to run a campaign since she was elected in 2013, is right to be worried about acknowledging her challenger. She knows Laura Loomer is gaining momentum,” Loomer’s chief strategist Karen Giorno said in a press release.

“Spurred into action late last week, Frankel hurriedly sent out a fundraising email. But her selective amnesia about her opponent means she needs help crafting her social media strategy. Mostly, she leans on friends, such as former Obama and Kamala Harris advisor Halie Soifer, who produce pot shots she can simply retweet. It’s no surprise that Lazy Lois is outsourcing her campaign like this. After all, she hasn’t shown up to Congress in months,” Giorno added.

“Frankel should be ashamed,” Giorno said. “We’ve come to expect indifference, snobbery and indolence from this Congresswoman. But even we are amazed to see her endorsing an unambiguous appeal for suppression, especially when she knows that her challenger is the most banned woman in the world already. More to the point, Loomer is also her legitimate opponent, a constituent in Frankel’s district and a citizen of the United States.”

Giorno added that if Frankel is so willing to use her big tech allies to shut down Loomer’s free speech, what will she do to the average American whose views she wants shut down?

“By openly advocating for her political opponent’s voice to be suppressed, Lois Frankel is revealing her contempt and apathy for the rights of voters who overwhelmingly selected Loomer as their candidate during the Republican primary,” Giorno continued.

“Frankel tweeted passionately in November 2019 about the Iranian government’s heavy-handed approach to internet censorship, calling it a ‘human rights violation.’ Apparently, she doesn’t extend the same courtesy to her own constituents,” Giorno wrote.

“This flagrant hypocrisy speaks volumes about the beliefs and attitudes of today’s elitist Democrat Party. Frankel’s indifference to the First Amendment rights of her own constituents is baffling, offensive and profoundly un-American. Palm Beach County voters are watching carefully, and they are not impressed,” Giorno concluded.

Here is one of Loomer’s latest ads:

Rochester Officers Forced To Cover Names After Protesters Shout Their Addresses, Kids’ Names, Etc.

Rochester Officers Forced To Cover Names After Protesters Shout Their Addresses, Kids’ Names, Etc.

Rochester police officers have been forced to hide their identities to protect their families as protesters have begun doxxing them.

“The past couple of months officers’ names have been researched by protesters to put personal information out to the public, putting the safety of their families in jeopardy,” said a statement from RPD Chief La’Ron Singletary, who announced his resignation earlier this week.

“Officers have been allowed to remove their name tags in an effort to prevent their personal information from being spread on social media,” Singletary added.

TDW:

Rochester Police Department (RPD) officers have been given permission to cover up their names displayed on their tags to avoid harassment from left-wing protesters, who are screaming out their home addresses, kids’ names and schools, and making taunting calls to their parents in front of them. They are also spreading personal information about the cops via social media.

[…]

Local radio show host and journalist Bob Lonsberry posted via Twitter on Thursday: “Peaceful protesters have stood outside the [Rochester] Public Safety Building, read an officer’s name off his uniform, tracked him down on their phones, and called his parents to taunt them. Or held up the phone to show the officer his home address and threaten to come after him there.”

Singletary had his statement read by City Council Chief of Staff Robert Scanlon during a briefing with Democrat Mayor Lovely Warren and city council members on Wednesday. The police chief did not attend the meeting in person. More

‘Peaceful’ protesters who threaten officers or their families are criminals and need to be put in cages. Until society decides enough is enough these thugs will continue terrorizing innocent citizens.

Doxxing should be a crime and when it involves innocent family members there should be a stiff sentence. In the meantime arrest the rioters and find out who is funding them and put them away for a very long time.

Watch Angry Knife-Wielding BLM Mob Chase TV Reporter

A reporter and a security guard were chased away by an angry mob of BLM protesters, including one who appeared to be wielding a knife in Rochester.

“Yo, I’m about to kill ‘em, brah,” one man says on the footage as the reporter and the guard run away.

NY Post:

A news reporter and a security guard in Rochester were chased away by an angry mob of Daniel Prude protesters, including one who appeared to be wielding a knife, dramatic video shows.

The footage from Sunday’s protests in Rochester shows WHEC reporter Charles Molineaux and a security guard being told to get away by demonstrators marching toward the city’s Public Safety Building.

Protests erupted in the upstate New York city last week following the release of police bodycam footage from March showing cops pressing Prude’s face into the ground until he stopped breathing. Prude, who was black, later died.

“Go home, go home, go home!” the crowd chanted as Molineaux and the guard were confronted in a nearby parking lot, video shows. One protester is seen waving a Black Lives Matter flag.

“Just leave, go that way!” one man tells them. “Go out the parking lot!”

“Get the f–k up out of here!” another man yells.

Molineaux then pulls out his cellphone and snaps a photo, which he later posted on Twitter, before the guard motions that the pair need to leave the area immediately.

They then start walking briskly away from the protesters before two men, including one who appears to be armed with a knife, make threatening motions toward them, the clip shows. More

Not everyone agrees Sunday night’s demonstration at the Public Safety Building was peaceful.

Food Lion Tells Veteran To Remove His American Flag Mask

Food Lion Tells Veteran To Remove His American Flag Mask

An Air Force veteran quit his job at a North Carolina Food Lion after he was told that he could not wear his American flag face mask. “Someone complained about me wearing the flag mask,” Gary Dean told The Todd Starnes Radio Show.

“The manager came up to me and said, ‘I’m embarrassed to even tell you this, but someone came up and said you can’t wear it,’” Mr. Dean said.

WCTI:

A now-former employee of an area supermarket says he quit his job this week after being told he could not wear a face covering depicting the American flag while at work.

Gary Dean says he left his job at the Food Lion in Havelock and is shocked the American flag would be offensive to anyone, especially in a military town.

The 69-year-old’s home is full of patriotic paraphernalia, and Dean, who once anchored at NewsChannel 12, is a veteran himself.

“1970-1976,” Dean said of the years he served in the United States Air Force. “Four of those were active, two of those were inactive reserve.”

He showed NewsChannel 12 a photo album of memories and says memories of his service are an emotional subject.

[…]

It was that anger, Dean says, that caused him to quit his job at the Food Lion’s Havelock location Tuesday. Dean says a manager approached him that afternoon, telling him he could no longer wear his face covering with the American flag printed on it. More

Thank you for your service, sacrifice, and for standing up for your principles, Mr. Dean. It is sad and disturbing that we live in the USA and we can’t freely wear our flag without fear of “offending” a snowflake. It’s not a message or an organization, it’s a flag. A flag that he risked his life and fought for.
