Iran Will Get $185B From Lifted Sanctions On Oil & Gas

From Reuters:

Iran eyes $185 billion oil and gas projects after sanctions

By Shadia Nasralla and Maria Sheahan | July 23, 2015

VIENNA | Iran on Thursday outlined plans to rebuild its main industries and trade relationships following a nuclear agreement with world powers, saying it was targeting oil and gas projects worth $185 billion by 2020…

We suspect they are worth that much or more right now. And if you add this $185 billion to the $150 billion that Iran is going to get back from their frozen assets you get a total of $335 billion dollars. Most of which will go to advancing their nuclear weapons program and into funding their terrorists minions from Iraq to Yemen, including Hamas and Hezbollah.

Sanctions are unlikely to be removed until next year, as the deal requires approval by the U.S.

WH Says 2 Secret Side Deals Are Not ‘Secret Side Deals’

These deals are literally secret and they are certainly on the side from the main agreement between Iran and the P5+1 nations. So what else is the White House lying to us about?

From The Hill:

White House: Iran-IAEA pacts are not ‘side deals’

By Jordan Fabian | July 23, 2015

Agreements between Iran and the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) are not secret “side deals” to the main nuclear pact between Tehran and six world powers, the White House said Thursday. “This does not represent some sort of side deal,” press secretary Josh Earnest told reporters.

They are separate deals from the agreement between the P5+1 nations and they are secret. So they are secret side deals. Why try to lie about it? And if the White House is willing to lie to us about this, what else are they about?]

Republicans have seized on the existence of what they call “side deals” between Iran and the IAEA to build support against the deal in Congress…

It’s not just Republicans.

Kerry: No One Ever Talked About Dismantling Iran Nukes

The sad fact is Mr. Kerry has always been a liar and/or a willing dupe.

But first there is this from the Washington Free Beacon:

Kerry Admits U.S. Will Help Protect Iran’s Nuclear Program From Sabotage

By Blake Seitz | July 23, 2015

Top Obama administration officials testified Thursday that the U.S. would help ensure the “physical security” of Iran’s nuclear infrastructure as part of the nuclear agreement they reached with the Islamic republic two weeks ago. Sen. Marco Rubio (R., Fla.) asked the assembled officials whether a controversial provision in Annex III of the agreement obligated the U.S. to help protect Iran’s nuclear program from future sabotage by Iran’s opponents, notably Israel.

The charge was ducked, but not denied, by Secretary of Energy Ernest Moniz.

Pope Francis’s Approval Rating Drops Among Americans

Pope Francis is a lot like Hillary. The more he talks, the less people like him. Oddly enough, in a way, that’s almost the opposite of the case with Donald Trump. Despite what the media pundits claim.

From The Hill:

Pope’s favorability dips with Americans

By Ben Kamisar | July 22, 2015

The pope’s favorability rating among Americans has plummeted in the past year and a half, according to a new poll, though he still retains a wholly positive reputation. Fifty-nine percent of Americans have a favorable view of Pope Francis and 16 percent view him unfavorably in a new Gallup poll. That’s down from a 76 percent favorability rating in February, 2014, but in line with his rating when he was inaugurated in 2013.

Anthony Weiner Gets PR Job With Clinton Crony’s Firm

Hey, nothing is surprising when it comes for finding an income for a Clinton-ista. They always look out for each other. — At least he isn’t being given a job at the Clinton Foundation or Goldman Sachs or Fannie Mae — or NBC.

From the New York Post:

Anthony Weiner got a job fixing PR messes — seriously

By Carl Campanile | July 23, 2015

If you find yourself in a p.r. nightmare, there’s a swashbuckling new hero you can turn to — Carlos Danger. A top “crisis” public-relations firm with ties to Hillary Rodham Clinton has hired the last person in the world that most people would call on to dispense advice on dealing with a scandal: disgraced, penis-texting former Congressman Anthony Weiner.

Gee, why would a firm with ties to Hillary hire Huma Abedin’s husband?

Dems Demand Investigation Of Group Behind PP Videos

Plus, the White House insists that Planned Parenthood hold themselves to the highest ethical standards.

But first here is a press release from the Office of Congresswoman Jan Schakowsky:

Schakowsky, Lofgren, Nadler and Clarke send letter to Attorneys General asking for investigation into Center for Medical Progress

July 22, 2015

Democrats Are Now Calling ‘Kate’s Law’ – ‘Trump’s Law’

Plus, the White House is now saying that the Republicans are to blame for the crimes committed by illegal aliens.

But first there is this from The Hill:

Democrats slam sanctuary city legislation, labeling it ‘The Donald Trump Act’

By Mike Lillis | July 22, 2015

House Democratic leaders are slamming GOP legislation aimed at discouraging sanctuary cities, characterizing the proposal as “The Donald Trump Act” in a bid to embarrass the Republicans bringing the measure to the floor this week.

What is so embarrassing about that? Besides, shouldn’t the Democrats, especially those representing ‘sanctuary cities’ be the ones who are embarrassed? They have the blood of countless people on their hands.

The proposal, which would withhold federal law enforcement funds for state or local governments that refuse to cooperate with federal immigration agents, comes in response to this month’s fatal shooting of Kathryn Steinle along the San Francisco waterfront, allegedly by an illegal immigrant with a long criminal history.

DHS Wants To Expand Waivers For More Illegal Aliens

Great. So now even government agencies are rewriting our immigration laws.

From the Washington Free Beacon:

Obama Admin Plans More Executive Action on Immigration

By Elizabeth Harrington | July 22, 2015

The Obama administration is moving forward with plans to expand a waiver program that will allow additional illegal aliens to remain in the country rather than apply for legal status from abroad.

The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) issued a proposed rule on Tuesday that would make changes to a waiver program created by President Barack Obama’s executive action on immigration in 2013. The action created a waiver that primarily allowed illegal immigrants with a U.S. citizen spouse or parent to stay in the country instead of having to leave the United States and be barred from returning for three or 10 years, if they proved their absence would create an “extreme hardship” for their spouse.

Obama Changes Deportation To Help ‘Sanctuary Cities’

FTA: "Administration officials said they started the new programs to improve cooperation with the more than 300 cities like San Francisco that passed laws limiting cooperation with federal authorities." Remember when Obama bent over backwards to cooperate with Arizona, when they tried to actually enforce the federal immigration laws?

From a cheering New York Times:

Most Undocumented Immigrants Will Stay Under Obama’s New Policies, Report Says

By JULIA PRESTON | July 23, 2015

Under new immigration enforcement programs the Obama administration is putting in place across the country, the vast majority of unauthorized immigrants — up to 87 percent — would not be the focus of deportation operations and would have “a degree of protection” to remain in the United States, according to a report published Thursday by the Migration Policy Institute, a nonpartisan research group in Washington.

White House Is Drafting A Plan To Close Guantanamo

Just watch. As soon as the Guantanamo prison is closed the drumbeat will begin for giving the entire base back to Cuba.

From a cheering Reuters:

White House says it is drafting plan to close Guantanamo

By Julia Edwards | July 22, 2015

WASHINGTON — The White House said on Wednesday it was in the final stage of drafting a plan for closing the Guantanamo prison for foreign terrorism suspects, racing against time to resolve one of President Barack Obama’s most intractable problems.

What exactly is the problem? Are we keeping too many top level terrorists off the battlefield?

White House spokesman Josh Earnest said the administration hoped to "short circuit" opposition from Republicans in Congress who have blocked Obama from closing the prison, one of his top goals…

This administration never addresses any opposition.

Iran Parliament Has 80 Days To Approve Obama’s Deal

Iran’s parliament also seems to actually have the power to change and even totally reject the agreement. Unlike the US Congress, at least according to Obama.

From the Fiscal Times:

Iranian Parliament to U.S. Congress: You First

By Rob Garver | July 22, 2015

… On Tuesday, Iran’s parliament one-upped [the US] Congress, declaring that it will not vote on the deal for at least 80 days, during which time a panel of experts will review it…

Under the 80-day review standard… [the Iranian parliament] won’t have to take a position on the deal until they know what Congress has done. That means that in the unlikely event of Congress rejecting the deal, they could claim that it was never acceptable to them in the first place.

NYT: Verification In Iran Deal Is Questioned By Experts

The trouble is, the one and only response there is for finding any evidence of Iran violating this agreement, no matter how big or small, is to resume sanctions. Which will never happen.

From the New York Times, of all places:

Verification Process in Iran Deal Is Questioned by Some Experts

By MICHAEL R. GORDON | July 22, 2015

WASHINGTON — The Obama administration’s claim that the Iran nuclear accord provides for airtight verification procedures is coming under challenge from nuclear experts with long experience in monitoring Tehran’s program. Energy Secretary Ernest J. Moniz has insisted that Iran would not be able to hide traces of any illicit nuclear work before inspectors gain access to a suspicious site.

But several experts, including a former high-ranking official at the International Atomic Energy Agency, said a provision that gives Iran up to 24 days to grant access to inspectors might enable it to escape detection.

WP: ‘Secret Deals’ Is Latest Complaint About Iran Deal

Honest question: Has the IAEA ever stopped a country from getting nuclear weapons? We don’t believe they have.

From spinning like a centrifuge Washington Post:

‘Secret deals’ become latest congressional complaint about Iran deal

By Karoun Demirjian | July 22, 2015

A rising chorus of criticism emerged from the closed-door Iran briefings at the Capitol on Wednesday, as lawmakers skeptical of the nuclear agreement demanded a reckoning from administration officials about so-called “secret deals” between Tehran and the agency tasked with inspecting nuclear facilities.

Again with the ‘scare quotes’ and the ‘so-called.’ These side deals have not been made public and are never going to be made public. And they are never going to be turned over to Congress for review. So they are about as secret as anything gets.

White House Admits Side Deals Between Iran And IAEA

The always brilliant Susan Rice claims these two secret side deals were not secret. And never mind that they were never made public, and they are still not going to be turned over to Congress.

From The Hill:

White House acknowledges ‘side’ deals between Iran, IAEA

By Jordan Fabian | July 22, 2015

National Security Adviser Susan Rice on Wednesday acknowledged the existence of so-called “side” agreements between Iran and the International Atomic Energy Agency.

What’s with the ‘so-called side deals’? These are deals that are separate and apart from the agreement P5+1 nations have agreed to. So they are literally side deals.

Rice said the deals involve Iran accounting for past military uses of its nuclear program, but rejected GOP assertions that this represented “secret” side deals to the Iranian nuclear agreement.

Hackers Show They Can Take Control Of Jeep Cherokee

Hackers Show They Can Take Control of Moving Jeep Cherokee

By Danny Yadron and Mike Spector | July 21, 2015

Two computer-security researchers demonstrated they could take control of a moving Jeep Cherokee using the vehicle’s wireless communications system, raising new questions about the safety of Internet-connected cars. Fiat Chrysler Automobiles NV, owner of the Jeep brand [sic], on Tuesday blasted the researchers for disclosing their ability to hack into the sport-utility vehicle’s software and manipulate its air conditioning, stereo controls and control its speed by disabling the transmission from a laptop many miles away.

The hackers, one of whom works for Twitter Inc. and is a former analyst for the National Security Agency [sic!], counter they are bringing attention to an issue auto makers have for too long ignored.
