IRAN – The Media’s Bucket-Hauling For This Administration Knows No Bounds

By 7 Comments 2,459 views


Unless you are sleeping in one of Iran’s hidden uranium enrichment bunkers where the isotope separation is proceeding apace, you are not protected from the incessant and toxic media coverage of the “Obama / Iran  almost-deal.”  There is no deal.  There never will be a deal.  Nevertheless, the left’s media machines are building the foundation for a “legacy.”

Iran supposedly has stockpiles of low-level enriched uranium. Will the Ayatollah agree to get rid of them and ship them off to Putin?  No chance.  As for the centrifuges, high level, low level, basic or more advanced, Iran will enrich. What’s Obama negotiating here, . .  how much time Iran should be given to “enrich”?   Will Iran make a bomb?  Why else has Iran entered the nuclear arms race?  To grow blueberries?    The Ayatollah will have his nuclear arms.

Sanctions? The Ayatollah won’t stand for any and will expect them to be lifted immediately.  But, but, but, . . . we’ll be inspecting, so can’t we lift them a little and then reinstate them if Iran cheats?   Inspect what exactly?  And where? The notion of inspections is a lie intended to skew our perceptions.  Iran is a vast and naturally wealthy country with well educated people, capable of doing the Ayatollah’s bidding, including hiding whatever he wants hidden.

And what’s that 10 year thing about?  Another kicking of a can down the road? 10 years from now the Ayatollah will be “converted” perhaps?

The Ayatollah is just as religiously entrenched as Obama is politically entrenched.  The real problem for the rest of the world is that both of these individuals believe that the end justifies the means — lying, cheating, fabricating, deception, and obstruction are all part of the process when egos are determined to achieve legacies. Egos are a powerful energy.  Remember last year when we were told that the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) was unable to confirm Iran had not sought to develop nuclear weapons and referred Iran to the UN Security Council for failing to comply with the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty?  Let’s just ignore that minor event.

The Ayatollah will have his nuclear power and he will have his nuclear weapon capability, but his signature will never appear on an agreement, and yet, he is the supreme power in Iran.  Everyone else follows his despotic orders. Iran has succumbed to the enforcement of shari’a.

But other than all this, why should the world be concerned?  The answer lies in who is doing the negotiating.  Who is at the table on our side with any proven capacity for negotiating? Who can we trust for such a portentous endeavour?   This picture published by WaPo gives us a clue. Who makes up that illustrious group of negotiators in the posed-for picture?  Obama, Rice and Kerry, plus their handpicked gofers?  With little but failures scarring their track-records, they are fighting for our skins with a never present Ayatollah?

Regardless how deplorable the outcome of this engagement with the Ayatollah’s representatives, the western media is already covering for Obama, wrapping all outcomes in bright positive light, regardless of the truth.  WaPo today starts with instructing us that the state of the U.S. foreign policy is not Obama’s fault and that Bush is to blame. Sure, the whole Middle East is aflame, much of it at the hands of this Administration, but let’s bring up Bush again and throw it at him. He’s an easy target who’s not been around for six years.  WaPo works overtime to sell us Obama’s “vision” and to sell us on his unique brilliance in pivoting on Iran, and peddling that,  “He can describe in minute detail the number and type of centrifuges that Iran would be allowed to retain under a deal.”  It’s almost as if sycophantic Jarrett wrote the article herself.

The media is desensitizing us to the eventuality that Iran is on its way to becoming a Nuclear power.  The ruthless and violent psychopaths who control Iran, who have slaughtered millions, and from whom millions have fled, will have nuclear bombs and the missiles to deliver them.

There can be no deal between Obama and Iran because the Ayatollah will not allow one to stand.  Legacy?  What legacy?  Oh yes, of course, the Ayatollah’s nuclear legacy.

A constituent of the vast baby boomer generation with a career which has been fortunate to know the ponderous corporate worlds, as well as the intimately pressurized, and invigorating entrepreneurial domains of high tech and venture capital, I have harvested my share of mistakes meandering through corridors of enterprise from Silicon Valley, to London and endless, colourful, sometimes praetorian points in between. The voyage has provided an abundance of fodder for a pen yielding to an inquisitive keyboard, a foraging mind, and a passionate spirit. Whether political or business or social or economic or personal, is it not all political? It is a privilege to write, and an even greater privilege to be read by anyone, and sometimes with the wind at my back the writing may occasionally be legible. I do not write to invite scorn, nor to invite respect, but if I get really lucky the writing can stimulate thinking. I also write for the very selfish purpose of animating my own processes, and engaging the best of what life offers. Above all, whether biting fire or swatting shadows, I am grateful to be gifted the freedom to write and publish whatever flows down to the keyboard. To all those who enabled this freedom, and to all those standing guard to preserve it, I am indebted.

    “The Mefia”? Americans have a wide choice no one gives them to choose “the Media”
    But the fact is that during the prime time need hour only about 10% of Americans choose to watch Fox News
    That is really your problem that Americans don’t choose to consume the media that YOU think they should

    @John: That 10% is astounding when you consider a study found that only 26% of all Americans watch the evening news at all.
    And even then most people watch their LOCAL news for things…..relevant to them personally, like weather and traffic.

    As to the media being in bed with Obama on this Iran deal, a cursory look at google or nexxus news shows this:
    Obama is having a tough time.
    Bibi N. is being made into the bad guy.
    Iran is dragging its feet but reporters don’t know why.
    It would be good for the world (economically) if the deal goes through.

    But none of the above are true.
    Obama is having a ball.
    He’s golfing, partying, going on TV and fundraising.
    Bibi N. is reminding the world what will happen if Iran gets the bomb.
    Reporters keep getting told why Iran is dragging its feet (new pre-conditions, new demands, new interpretations of old agreements not-in-writing).
    The world is not going to be helped by a nuclear arms race in the ME.

    Yeah, reading the headlines and a few of the top stories is elucidating.
    But mostly because of what those stories don’t tell, not what they do.

    And today, with legacy of Peace In Our Time Repeated by the mindless media – the great Lie Is given legs.

    The Ayatollah is hurting himself with laughter.

    Let’s see how the MSM spins this:

    Zarif also revealed that Iran will be allowed to sell “enriched uranium” in the international market place and will be “hopefully making some money” from it.

    Why are we not surprised?

    To its unconscious readers, today the NYT wrote:

    For a president whose ambitions to remake the world have been repeatedly frustrated, the possibility of a reconciliation after 36 years of hostility between Washington and Tehran now seems tantalizingly within reach, a way to be worthy of the Nobel Peace Prize that even he believed was awarded prematurely.

    Will this lack of insight from the socialists ever subside?

    . . . . . Never mind.
