Obama’s coverup of the dirty stinking Iranian deal deepens

The grimy Iran deal that Kerry and Obama foisted upon us only gets more sinister as the Obama bucks any an all investigations as to what the deal is. Earlier AG Lynch ‘pleads Fifth’ on secret Iran payments gave us a clue that the number of individuals involved runs deep. Now we are approving the sale of planes to Iran. My thought? Blackmail. We have  Iranian born Jarrett, but the lynchpin in the whole affair was Kerry who was so desperate to cut a deal even the blind could see the pandering.

Is Kerry being blackmailed with his Iranian family ties?

Secretary of State John Kerry exposed a secret that journalists and academics have been agonizing over for the past six weeks: the fact that his daughter has married an Iranian-American who has extensive family ties to Iran.

“I am proud of the Iranian-Americans in my own family, and grateful for how they have enriched my life,” Kerry said in the official statement. Kerry also said he was “strongly committed to resolving” the differences between the United States and the Islamic Republic of Iran, “to the mutual benefit of both of our people.”

“But what if the regime simply decides to round up Nahed’s family members and torture them? Or sends its goons to visit them at home? Or exerts some form of more subtle pressure on them that gets no publicity, and then makes it known they want the United States to release Iranians jailed in the United States on terrorism charges or for attempting to procure weapons technology or military spare parts”?

Since its inception, the FBI has vetted U.S. government officials involved in national security issues, and it generally won’t grant clearances to individuals who are married to nationals of an enemy nation or have family members living in that country, for fear of divided loyalties or, more simply, blackmail.

But I digressed. Back to the latest buzz on Iran:

Senior Obama administration officials in their final days in office are seeking to cover up key details of the Iran nuclear deal from Congress, according to documents and sources who spoke to the Washington Free Beacon about continued efforts by the White House to block formal investigations into secret diplomacy with Tehran that resulted in a $1.7 billion cash payment by the United States.

As leading members of Congress petition the Obama administration for answers about what many describe as a $1.7 billion “ransom” payment to Iran, Obama administration officials are doubling down on their refusal to answer questions about the secret negotiations with Iran that led to this payment.

And the Planes?

The United States said on Tuesday it had issued a second license to France’s Airbus to sell commercial planes to Iran Air, bringing Iran’s flag carrier a step closer to receiving new Western jets under last year’s deal to ease sanctions.

Although Airbus is based in France, it must have U.S. approval to sell planes to Iran because at least 10 percent of the aircraft’s components are American-made. Tehran provisionally ordered more than 100 jets each from Airbus and Boeing this year.

In a letter to the United Nations Security Council on Tuesday, Israeli U.N. Ambassador Danny Danon accused Iran of using commercial airline flights to ship weapons to Lebanese Shi’ite Muslim group Hezbollah. More at Free Beacon

Obama sets new record in ‘Rules and Regulations’ -527 pages in one day

 

No less than a junkie rushing to find the pusher man, Obama tools up his henchmen to rush and do the maximum damage to every corner of our existence and has them working overtime to infest every aspect of our lives. Because this is Obama’s fix. Making America worse.

And so the Federal register drones on. It is the beast that must be fed. Let us pay heed. It promulgates the actions of a despotic government. The Federal Register. As published by the Government Printing Office One may find the GPO Shortcut to “Daily Issue” located: Here

Here goes:

President Obama has just set a new record for rules and regulations, his administration spitting out 527 pages worth in just one day, as he races to put his fingerprint on virtually every corner of American life and business.

According to the Competitive Enterprise Institute, the administration has just shattered the old record for pages of regulations and rules published by the in-house journal, the Federal Register.

What’s more, there are still about 26 working days left in the year.

“No one knows what the future holds, but at a pace of well over 1,000 pages weekly, the Federal Register could easily top 90,000 pages this year. The simple algebra says that at the current pace we’ll add 11,190 pages over the next 44 days, to end 2016 at around 92,830 pages,” said CEI’s Clyde Wayne Crews.

Obama has promised to regulate by executive authority, but the sheer number of pages of regulations being rushed through is astonishing. H/T:Washington Examiner

A post of mine done in 2010 that might be of interest:The Federal Register – The Gift that keeps on giving

 

Like some unseen behemoth beneath the oceans. A weapon used against business and individuals that can permeate every aspect of our lives if left unattended when proper notices of enactment are disregarded.

The government may not do much right, but the czars, and the drones they employ must produce this content daily to justify their existence. They must create some form of governmental control, edict, mandate for their lives to continue.

While major infringements upon us may make the news, it is the dozens of “little” rules that go unnoticed, created to benefit or hinder those who do or do not pay proper tribute to the great one. It is here that Obamacare recipients will hear the good news that they will get a “waiver” or as known, “priviledge” from the good Czar. The Federal Register where we learned of the rebirth of the death panels. The surprise that the death panels return via regulation. Congress be damned.

 

Mark Levin: ‘Bob Corker must not be Secretary of State’

Call me a worry wart. I was determined to have a positive week of postings. Since Mark Levin raised a flag, I will chime in. Frankly, I have been concerned that Chris Christie was heading up the transition team. New Jersey is not a pleasant place to live in if one is short on cash. The one position I worry about is Secretary of State. We have learned the importance of this position. So here goes Mark Levin:

“Bob Corker must not be one of the individuals nominated for that position, and we will fight it in Congress too,” Levin said.

“That man undermined the constitution, undermined the treaty provision, and helped hand Barack Obama exactly what he wanted with Iran. And I am sick and tired of Republicans like this. We cannot have any more losers as secretary of state,” Levin added.

“Absolutely NO to Bob Corker. No way,” concluded Levin.

Levin’s admonition to Trump against Corker’s nomination was part of his larger point that President-elect Trump must not nominate members of the Republican Establishment to key positions in his administration.

And conservatives ought to be prepared to fight to keep him from doing so.

AG Lynch ‘pleads Fifth’ on secret Iran payments

While we watch Hillary gaze into the abyss of server hell, our gal Loretta has herself in a boatload of troubles. It seems that the loot that found its way to Iran for who knows what purpose came under her purview. Taking a page from Hillary, pleading the Fifth and otherwise keeping one’s mouth shut is best. I chose this topic for the corruption story of the day:

ag-lynch

Attorney General Loretta Lynch is declining to comply with an investigation by leading members of Congress about the Obama administration’s secret efforts to send Iran $1.7 billion in cash earlier this year, prompting accusations that Lynch has “pleaded the Fifth” Amendment to avoid incriminating herself over these payments, according to lawmakers and communications exclusively obtained by the Washington Free Beacon.

Sen. Marco Rubio (R., Fla.) and Rep. Mike Pompeo (R., Kan.) initially presented Lynch in October with a series of questions about how the cash payment to Iran was approved and delivered.

In an Oct. 24 response, Assistant Attorney General Peter Kadzik responded on Lynch’s behalf, refusing to answer the questions and informing the lawmakers that they are barred from publicly disclosing any details about the cash payment, which was bound up in a ransom deal aimed at freeing several American hostages from Iran.

The response from the attorney general’s office is “unacceptable” and provides evidence that Lynch has chosen to “essentially plead the fifth and refuse to respond to inquiries regarding [her] role in providing cash to the world’s foremost state sponsor of terrorism,” Rubio and Pompeo wrote on Friday in a follow-up letter to Lynch, according to a copy obtained by the Free Beacon.

Howard Dean was not quite ready for prime time!

It was a late night and most of us have probably had our fill of politics, so I thought I would give you something that will give a chuckle. Howard Dean could not imagine he was getting anything less than a softball question from MSNBC. The amazing thing is the interviewer apparently couldn’t get out of the story box. Enjoy!

Will the real Edward Snowden please stand up and who are your handlers?

The Free Beacon has a story today regarding the NSA and the so called “gaps” that the agency can not or is not willing to address. While they bemoan the P.C. correctness that has infiltrated the organization, I submit the issue is far more serious. I will give you a post I did several years ago. I will let you draw your own conclusions. First from the Beacon:

Until Snowden, the NSA had a reputation as one of the intelligence organizations most dedicated to protecting secrets. But the case exposed gaping holes at the agency, and a House intelligence report says gaps persist years after Snowden fled the country and holed up in Moscow . More at Free Beacon.

We have a guy who never got it together. High School drop out, military failure, three months on the job. William Binney, one of the original whistle-blowers, worked for the NSA for over thirty years before he resigned more than ten years ago over this very same story. Much of the same information about the NSA. For the Binney interview and the development of the Utah spy Center: NSA Utah spy center holds ribbon cutting ceremony-videos .

Hot Air  Even the intel guys can’t figure it out:

Among the questions is how a contract employee at a distant NSA satellite office was able to obtain a copy of an order from the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court, a highly classified document that would presumably be sealed from most employees and of little use to someone in his position.

A former senior NSA official said that the number of agency officials with access to such court orders is “maybe 30 or maybe 40. Not large numbers.”…

And the girl friend?   From the WH Dossier   Snowden Left Beautiful Girlfriend in the Lurch

Yes, that’s Lindsay Mills, the gal Ed Snowden ditched so he could become the hero of telephone records. Apparently she’s a ballet trained, pole dancing fountain of pulchritude who blogs about her life at “L’s Journey,” was still up the last I looked.

Jim Hoft at Gateway Pundit got a glimpse of the website before it went off-line for awhile, finding the latest post in which she says she’s now “without a compass.”

I gather Snowden took the compass so he could find his way to Hong Kong. (Alert: sound is very loud when playing clip)

Warning- Sound is very loud in the clip. Here she is doing her dance thing.

The Guardian on Monday shares more about the young man who it says was behind last week’s leaks concerning National Security Agency programs that sweep up data on phone calls and Internet activity. It paints a portrait of a mediocre student with a GED degree who joined the Army in 2003, but was discharged after breaking his legs in a training accident. Snowden says he later wound up working with the CIA and then a contractor because he’s skilled at computer programming.

The Washington Post, which along with the Guardian published a report last week based on documents allegedly leaked by Snowden, adds that:

“With wire glasses, short, dark hair and a thin goatee, he maintains an academic look. Yet he never completed his coursework at a community college in Maryland, only later obtaining his GED — an unusually light education for someone who would advance in the intelligence ranks.

Obama to gobble up 5000 Square miles of ocean, bans commercial fishing

Obama has been making massive land grabs and now he moves on to the waterways. No doubt putting many fishermen out of work as well as all the support industries by banning commercial fishing which has made New England famous.

The designation of the Northeast Canyons and Seamounts Marine National Monument marks the 27th time Obama has acted to create or expand a national monument. He has done so unilaterally, using the authorities granted under the Antiquities Act.

“But there’s also going to be some other very significant things that aren’t really quantifiable in dollars, like new marine protected areas, like bans on plastic bags..

(CNSNews.com) – The State Department is hosting a two-day conference on the world’s oceans, beginning today, and it’s expected to produce a raft of announcements and initiatives, including new marine protected areas — one off the coast of New England — as well as a ban on single-use plastic bags.

Ahead of the conference, press reports said President Obama on Thursday will establish the first national marine monument in the Atlantic Ocean to permanently protect nearly 5,000 square miles of underwater canyons and mountains off the coast of New England.

The White House said the designation will lead to a ban on commercial fishing — an industry that made New England famous…

Earlier I posted Obama gobbles up 400,000 square miles for the government Then we have a posting on August 22, 2016 Obama and the Greenies seeking massive land grab in Utah

President Obama, with the stroke of a pen, created the world’s largest ocean reserve on Friday off Hawaii, 400,000 square miles, days after designating a massive federal monument in Maine – moves that have angered local lawmakers who accuse the president of disregarding the impact on residents.

Try this one out:

Obama Designates National Monument in Maine, to Dismay of SomeNew York Times3 days ago

Mr. Obama designated more than 87,500 acres of rugged terrain

It became by far the largest region of federal parkland in Maine, surpassing the 48,900-acre Acadia National Park on the coast

Just a few of the land grabs… and he says he is far from done.
