    System set up outside Iran’s borders conducted tens of billions in banned trade, according to documents, intelligence officials WASHINGTON—Iran established a clandestine banking and finance system to handle tens of billions of dollars in annual trade banned under U.S.-led sanctions, enabling Tehran to endure the economic siege and giving it leverage in multilateral nuclear talks, according to Western diplomats, intelligence officials and documents. The system, which comprises accounts in foreign commercial banks, proxy companies registered outside the country, firms that coordinate the banned trade, and a transaction clearinghouse within Iran, has helped Tehran resist the Biden administration’s pressure to rejoin...

Trump's former deputy attacks President Biden: "Seeks dangerous agreement with Iran" - on Russian invasion of Ukraine: "Putin must be arrested, and Putin must pay" - he adds: "Pressure must continue until Russian forces leave" "It is inconceivable that while Putin is committing atrocities on Ukrainian soil, the administration is negotiating a nuclear deal with Iran, it is unacceptable," former US Vice President Mike Pence said in an exclusive interview with Israel Today....

  • Obama White House secretly gave Iran access to US financial systems: GOP report FLASHBACK

    Wall Street Journal editorial board member Bill McGurn discusses the report that the Obama administration gave Iran brief access to the U.S. financial system. A Senate subcommittee report alleges that the Obama administration secretly sought to give Iran access to U.S. financial systems by sidestepping sanctions kept in place after the 2015 nuclear deal. The report claims the Obama Treasury Department issued a license to Bank Muscat to authorize "conversion of Iranian assets worth billions of U.S. dollars using the U.S. financial system." “I think it’s part of a larger fraud of the Iran deal where it was presented as...

    For many years, the Iranian regime has insisted to the world that its nuclear program was peaceful. The documents obtained by Israel from inside of Iran show beyond any doubt that the Iranian regime was not telling the truth. I have personally reviewed many of the Iranian files. Our nonproliferation and intelligence officials have been analyzing tens of thousands of pages and translating them from Farsi. This analytical work will continue for many months. We assess that the documents we have reviewed are authentic. The documents show that Iran had a secret nuclear weapons program for years. Iran sought to...

    The Obama scandal spin came in three phases when reacting to the truth. 1. It's a right-wing conspiracy theory 2. It's complicated 3. Everyone knew it all along and it's not a story Mazel tov to the Iran Deal which, with Netanyahu's revelations about Iran's nuclear weapons plans, which it had been hiding, has now graduated to the third phase. We've gone from, "Iran would never develop nuclear weapons" and "Iran only wants peaceful nuclear energy" to, "Of course, we knew Iran wanted nuclear weapons. That's why we need the Iran Deal."
  • Trump Admin Halts Taxpayer-Funded Purchases of Iranian Nuclear Materials

    The Trump administration has put a stop to U.S. purchases of nuclear materials from Iran, a policy that first began under the Obama administration in an attempt to ensure Iran remains in compliance with the landmark nuclear deal, according to U.S. officials who spoke to the Washington Free Beacon. The Obama administration sparked controversy in Congress and the national security world when it announced in late 2016 that it would spend more than $8 million dollars to purchase Iranian heavy water, a nuclear byproduct, in a bid to keep the Islamic Republic in line with restrictions on these materials imposed...

    WASHINGTON — Senator Bob Corker, the Republican chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, charged in an interview on Sunday that President Trump was treating his office like “a reality show,” with reckless threats toward other countries that could set the nation “on the path to World War III.”In an extraordinary rebuke of a president of his own party, Mr. Corker said he was alarmed about a president who acts “like he’s doing ‘The Apprentice’ or something.”“He concerns me,” Mr. Corker added. “He would have to concern anyone who cares about our nation.”Mr. Corker’s comments capped a remarkable day of...

    As reported, it seem that Barack Hussein Obama, and/or his “administration,” did cause the National Counterproliferation Initiative to be “hampered.” This was reportedly accomplised by acting or not acting on * *Obama’s side. * *Let’s propose that “the Obama administration” is always Obama himself. He has the ultimate responsibility for it. So, when, ultimately, Obama freed Iranian agents as part of his several, variegated “top secret deals” with Iran, it seemingly did undermine the National Counterproliferation Initiative. He sugar-coated and obscured his explanations of this particular deal, conveying that seven of the men—agents of an overtly hostile, foreign power—had just...

    The Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) is concerned over a missing radioactive device from Iran’s Bushehr nuclear reactor, Saudi-owned Arab newspaper Asharq al-Awsat reported on Thursday. Aside from the security concerns, at the forefront in the GCC’s mind is what impact the radioactive device—wherever it may be today—could have on water supplies. According to the newspaper, the device went missing after the car transporting it was stolen. Thankfully, the vehicle was recovered, but the radioactive nuclear device was not so lucky. The GCC has contacted the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) over the incident—both organizations are concerned that Iran’s nuclear program...

    Thursday's cordial meeting between President-elect Donald Trump and President Barack Obama was a reassuring ritual of democracy. But Obama was far from convincing when he told Trump "we are now going to do everything we can to help you succeed." There are some highly disparate ideas here about what constitutes success, both foreign and domestic. There are also big areas in which one might reasonably wonder if Obama and his team are in a quandary over the prospect of a Trump administration inheriting the internal records of the most transparent administration ever. Take, for instance, the Iran nuclear deal, Obama's...

    Coach is Right ^ | 8/18/15 | John C. Velisek USN (Ret.)
    “Secretary of State John Kerry would like to assure Iran that even if it violates the terms of the gratuitous concessions ‘thrown in as add-ons’ to the nuclear deal, the regime won’t be in violation of the deal as a whole. Specifically, the arms embargo is not tied to the snapback; it is tied to a separate set of obligations. So they are not in material breach of the nuclear agreement for violating the arms piece of it. Not to worry, Kerry explains, because there are ‘other sanctions’ the US could impose — plus, we mustn’t forget about the ‘specific...

    “Politics makes strange bedfellows.” That was 19th-century author/editor Charles Dudley Warner’s famous take on the vagaries and queer alliances that typify the so-called art of statecraft. But the odd lineup of forces on the recently concluded Iran nuclear deal takes some explaining beyond the truism embedded in Warner’s observation.The Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) that was announced on July 14 is a deal that was brokered by the United Nations Security Council, the European Union, Iran, the Obama administration — and most importantly of all, the Council on Foreign Relations (CFR), the private “think tank” that has been the...

    What this article outlines is, in fact, the termination clause within the Iranian nuclear deal. A full analysis shows how the language used to craft the deal gives Iran the easy out, ‘the-exit-ramp’ as soon as the sanctions are lifted. Paragraph 36 tells us when and how the agreement might end. Both friend and foe have touted this deal as “historic” and promised (or moaned) that its provisions will stay in place for the long term. But in practice, this is not a ten-year agreement or a fifteen-year agreement or an eternal agreement. Paragraph 36 tells us the truth: Any...

With them, the "deal" has gone...

    During Thursday’s Senate Foreign Relations Committee hearing on the Iran nuclear agreement, Secretary of State John Kerry said the goal of the negotiations was never to dismantle Iran’s entire nuclear program but rather to prevent them from obtaining nuclear weapons, despite saying in 2013 the “whole point” of sanctions was to get Iran to “dismantle its nuclear program.”
