Iran has Obama by the short hairs

Flashback 2013:

Obama hails an agreement with Iran:

Iran and six major powers agreed early Sunday on a historic deal that freezes key parts of Iran’s nuclear program in exchange for temporary relief on some economic sanctions.

The agreement, sealed at a 3 a.m. signing ceremony in Geneva’s Palace of Nations, requires Iran to halt or scale back parts of its nuclear infrastructure, the first such pause in more than a decade.

As with everything, the devil was in the details:

Not long after the accord was reached, Iran’s President Hassan Rouhani said the deal recognizes Tehran’s “right” to maintain an enrichment program.

Rouhani said, “Let anyone make his own reading, but this right is clearly stated in the text of the agreement that Iran can continue its enrichment, and I announce to our people that our enrichment activities will continue as before.”

But Kerry said in response on Sunday that the deal does not recognize a “right to enrich.”

“There is no inherent right to enrich,” Kerry said on ABC’s “This Week.” “And everywhere in this particular agreement it states that they could only do that by mutual agreement, and nothing is agreed on until everything is agreed on.”

Since then we’ve seen nothing other than a series of cave-ins from the Obama regime.

John Kerry assured us that sanctions would be lifted slowly as Iran complied with the terms of any agreement:

“The United States is not going to lift the sanctions until it is clear that a very verifiable, accountable, transparent process is in place, whereby we know exactly what Iran is going be doing with its program.”

Iran read the recent agreement very differently:

Iran’s supreme leader, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, joined that nation’s president Thursday in saying any nuclear agreement must include the immediate lifting of economic sanctions choking the country.

In his first public comments on the framework for a deal with world powers released last week, Khamenei told a gathering of religious poets he “is neither for nor against” the agreement. Because the agreement is just on a framework, not a deal itself, “nothing has been done yet,” he said.

“What has happened so far neither guarantees a deal … nor does it guarantee the content of a deal,” he said. “It doesn’t even guarantee the talks will go on until the end and will lead to a deal.”

He said the punitive “sanctions should be lifted completely on the very day of the deal.”

Obama has been freeing Iranian frozen assets over the last couple of years.

Now Obama caves again.

President Barack Obama appeared to yield Friday to Iran’s insistence that sanctions be removed immediately when a nuclear deal goes into effect, rather than over time. Rather than lifting sanctions only when Iran is shown to be complying with the agreement, Obama now wants sanctions to be able to “snap back” when Iran is found to be in violation of the deal.

Snap back, my ass. Problem is, Russia has announced that it will send S300 missiles to Iran. Those missiles are designed to intercept missiles and aircraft- the kind that would be used to respond to the violation of nuclear agreements.

Iran is in total control of these negotiations and has set two red lines for Obama:

Last week’s speech by Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei laid down two new red lines. First, he said that there would be no inspections of atomic work on military sites, let alone the snap inspections that the IAEA has long insisted were necessary. Second, he said that sanctions relief would have to be immediate. Both of these contradicted the framework agreement, as described by the factsheet that the administration presented to lawmakers and the public.

There was a time Obama had no intention to allow Congress to have any say in the deal:

WASHINGTON — No one knows if the Obama administration will manage in the next five weeks to strike what many in the White House consider the most important foreign policy deal of his presidency: an accord with Iran that would forestall its ability to make a nuclear weapon. But the White House has made one significant decision: If agreement is reached, President Obama will do everything in his power to avoid letting Congress vote on it.

The Iran deal is a disaster. Iran has Obama in a corner. They have him by the short hairs and he knows it. He needs a way out or someone else whose on hands the blood can spill:

U.S. President Barack Obama said on Friday a bill allowing Congress to review a deal concerning Iran’s nuclear program was a “reasonable compromise” he planned to sign, and he expressed confidence it would not derail talks with Tehran.

When Obama talks compromise with Republicans, you know you’re about to get screwed.

    Obama now wants sanctions to be able to “snap back” when Iran is found to be in violation of the deal.

    This from an administration that STILL doesn’t have any investigation on Fast & Furious gun walking finished ….yet….and it has been YEARS.
    This from an administration that STILL doesn’t have any investigation on the IRS targeting conservative groups finished….yet….and it has been years.
    Obama’s administration will NEVER find Iran to be in violation.
    They don’t know how to do an investigation and finish it.
    When Obama doesn’t want an investigation finished he uses the wiggle words, ”until ALL the facts are in,” which is an impossibility.

    OTOH, when Obama wants to slam white folks he simply claims the ”police acted stupidly,” or how the dead man ”could have been his son.”
    Who needs any investigation under circumstances where a narrative and its accompanying dog whistle is more important?
    But that would NEVER apply to Iran.

    All Obama wants is a deal. It doesn’t matter if it is a good deal for the US or world (he and his media sycophants can describe it any way they choose, anyway), he just wants that bullet point. If it falls through (due to being hornswoggled by superior negotiators) all he needs is someone to blame; Iran, Republicans, global warming.

    All Obama wants is a deal.

    Why are we listening to dumb and dumber (BHO and Kerry) on this issue. They have sold us down the river. Now the GOP will have to grow a set to stop this. I am not holding my breath.

    I would argue that Valarie Jarrett is the one who has Obama by the short hairs and in a mere 6 years has gotten Obama to give Iran, her home country, the green light for nukes…
    You have to be pretty simple minded to allow yourself to be manipulated in such a manner even if you don’t think much of the country you are theoretically leading..

    Let’s keep in mind that obama is just a marionette, and his puppeteers pull ALL of his strings. He doesn’t do anything without them telling him to, and they want to turn the USA into a muslim country.

    The leader of the USA is a known liar, trying to make a deal with the known liar of Iran. Do either one of them believe anything the other one is saying?

    This is one of the reasons that the president of the United States should be born to TWO US citizens AND vetted properly. They should be loyal to only one country and that is the United States of America. obama born to a communist US citizen mother and God only knows father in God only knows country where he has shown his intense dislike of the American people, what the United States and the Constitution stands for and his intense hatred of Christians. As bill ayers said once, – the country will be destroyed from within – and it is.

    I would like the law changed to say that both parents, and all four grandparents have to be born here. I want politicians with deep roots in American soil.

    What amazes me is that the only vetting that is done, is that the political parties send a letter to all 50 states stating that their candidate is legally qualified to run for president. That means that the political parties are on the honor system, and we know how honorable they are.

    What if a person ran on their own? Could they just send a letter to the 50 states stating that they are legally qualified to run for president, and the states have to let them run in their sate?

    Idaho law says that the letter has to be accepted. You might want to ask your politicians how it works in your state.

    @Enchanted:

    This is one of the reasons that the president of the United States should be born to TWO US citizens AND vetted properly.

    The definition of Natural Born includes both parents being US citizens. Some don’t believe that, but it’s true. The framers wanted the Commander in Chief to not have a divided allegiance. Any person, being born as a citizen of two countries, as Rubio, Jindal, are has a divided loyalty. Cruz was born a citizen of three countries, even more divided allegiance.

    L.A., Houston Nuke Contractors Indicted for Smuggling $24M in Missile Tech to Iran

    Five individuals and four companies, including Iranian government and Centrifuge Technology company contractors, have been indicted for illegally exporting technology frequently used in military systems such as surface-air and cruise missiles to Iran. This technology is “frequently used in a wide range of military systems, including surface-air and cruise missiles,” according to the Department of Justice. $24 million worth of technology was allegedly sent to Iran starting in July 2010.

    “The nine defendants charged in the indictment allegedly circumvented U.S. sanctions and illegally exported controlled microelectronics to Iran,” said Assistant Attorney General for National Security John P. Carlin. The elaborate path detailed in the indictment follows the technology on a route from the U.S. to Taiwan, then to Turkey and finally to Iran.

    In a Friday Department of Justice (DOJ) release, the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Southern District of Texas details the indictment and those charged, which include: Houston-based Smart Power Systems Inc. (SPS); Bahram Mechanic, 69, and Tooraj Faridi, 46, of Houston; Khosrow Afghahi, 71, of Los Angeles; and Faratel Corporation, co-owned by Mechanic and Afghahi in Iran. These individuals are described as “members of an Iranian procurement network operating in the United States.”

    Obama will probably hear about it on TV after he gets his Iran deal. (/sarc)
