14,000 ABANDONED WIND TURBINES LITTER THE UNITED STATES OBAMA’S LEGACY

abandoned-wind-turbines-2
The towering symbols of a fading religion, over 14,000 wind turbines, abandoned, rusting, slowly decaying. When it is time to clean up after a failed idea, no green environmentalists are to be found. Wind was free, natural, harnessing Earth’s bounty for the benefit of all mankind, sounded like a good idea. Wind turbines, like solar panels, break down. They produce less energy before they break down than the energy it took to make them. The wind does not blow all the time, or even most of the time. When it is not blowing, they require full-time backup from conventional power plants.

Without government subsidy, they are unaffordable. With governments facing financial troubles, the subsidies are unaffordable. It was a nice dream, a very expensive dream, but it didn’t work.

California had the “big three” of wind farm locations — Altamont Pass, Tehachapi, and San Gorgonio, considered the world’s best wind sites. California’s wind farms, almost 80% of the world’s wind generation capacity ceased to generate even more quickly than Kamaoa Wind Farm in Hawaii. There are five other abandoned wind farms in Hawaii. When they are abandoned, getting the turbines removed is a major problem. They are highly unsightly, and they are huge, and that’s a lot of material to get rid of.

Unfortunately the same areas that are good for siting wind farms are a natural pass for migrating birds. Altamont’s turbines have been shut down four months out of every year for migrating birds after environmentalists filed suit. According to the Golden Gate Audubon Society 75-110 Golden Eagles, 380 Burrowing Owls, 300 Red-Tailed Hawks and 333 American Kestrels are killed by the turbines every year. An Alameda County Community Development Agency study points to 10,000 annual bird deaths from Altamont wind turbines. The Audubon Society makes up numbers like the EPA, but there’s a reason why they call them bird Cuisinarts.

Palm Springs has enacted an ordinance requiring their removal from San Gorgonio Pass, but unless something else changes abandoned turbines will remain a rotting eyesores, or the taxpayers who have already paid through the nose for overpriced energy and crony-capitalist tax scams will have to foot the bill for their removal.

President Obama’s offshore wind farms will be far more expensive than those sited in California’s ideal wind locations. Salt water is far more damaging than sun and rain, and offshore turbines don’t last as long. But nice tax scams for his crony-capitalist backers will work well as long as he can blame it all on saving the planet.

ObamaCare Conspiracy Theories Are Looking More Plausible By The Day

COMMENTARY
ObamaCare Conspiracy Theories Are Looking More Plausible By The Day
Three years ago, Sen. Orrin Hatch said ObamaCare would fail and Democrats would use that failure as an excuse to push for a single-payer system. (AP)

“I will predict that within that year — now I may be wrong on this — but within the immediate future the Democrats are going to throw their hands in the air and say, ‘It’s not working. It’s unaffordable. And we have to go to a single-payer system.’ ”

That was Sen. Orrin Hatch in 2013, arguing that ObamaCare was designed to fail so that Democrats could use it as an excuse for the government to take over the entire insurance industry.

At the time, no respectable health care expert took Hatch — or any other conservative making such conspiratorial claims — seriously.

But today, Hatch is starting to look absolutely prescient, even if his timing was off.

Consider what is happening right now with ObamaCare. Enrollment is way below expectations. Insurers are putting in for double-digit rate hikes across the country, with some as high as 60%. UnitedHealth (UNH), Humana (HUM), and Blue Cross Blue Shield are pulling out of several ObamaCare markets, and most of the nonprofit co-ops created by ObamaCare have gone bust. As a result, the competition that was supposed to make ObamaCare exchanges the health care equivalent of Travelocity is evaporating.

And Democrats? They are using these problems to push for a still bigger role for government in providing health insurance.

The latest blow to ObamaCare came from Aetna (AET), which had been promising to expand its reach to 20 states, but instead is staying in just four. As a result, at least one county, this one in Arizona, faces the possibility that no insurer will be offering a health plan in the ObamaCare exchange.

Even before Aetna’s decision, 664 counties — more than a quarter of all counties in the country — had just one insurer in their ObamaCare exchange, according to a Kaiser Family Foundation report. Given that Aetna is exiting more than 500 counties, that number will only increase.

Meanwhile, three entire states — Alaska, Alabama, and Wyoming — are down to one insurer, and there’s no contingency if one of those insurers were to pack up and leave.

That’s not to say all of ObamaCare is falling apart — only the heavily-regulated private sector piece is.

The law’s Medicaid expansion, in contrast, is doing fabulously well, with enrollment climbing by nearly 15.5 million between the summer of 2013 and January 2016. That’s a 27% increase. And that’s despite the fact that more than a dozen states refused to expand Medicaid eligibility.

So what’s Hillary Clinton’s answer to the failing private exchanges? Get more people on government insurance through what she calls the “public option.” This would be a government-run health care plan offered in ObamaCare exchanges across the country.

“The public option, Clinton says, “will strengthen competition and reduce costs.”

But wait a minute. The “public option” was pushed by liberal Democrats in 2009 when ObamaCare was being built, and it was rejected by centrists in the party because it looked too much like a steppingstone to single payer.

As a matter of fact, that was the idea behind the “public option” in the first place.

As Mark Schmitt explained in the liberal American Prospect, “The public option was part of a carefully thought out and deliberately funded effort (to convince the single-payer crowd) they could live with the public option as a kind of stealth single-payer.” The idea was that the public option would be able to undercut private plans, driving them all out of the exchanges.

But all those centrists Democrats who opposed the public option are gone from the Senate, and if Hillary Clinton gets elected with a more liberal Senate majority, the public option will likely be top of her agenda.

With the vast Medicaid expansion, and the public option (as well as Clinton’s proposal to expand Medicare), it’s not far-fetched to say that soon the only people covered by private insurance will be the diminishing number who get it through work. (ObamaCare was also designed to shrink employer-based health.)

So was this all in the grand plan when Democrats passed ObamaCare in 2010?

Sen. Harry Reid, all but admitted as much in late 2013, when in an appearance on PBS’ “Nevada Week in Review,” he said that “what we’ve done with ObamaCare is have a step in the right direction, but we’re far from having something that’s going to work forever.” When asked if that meant a single-payer system, Reid said, “Yes, yes. Absolutely, yes.”

Ezra Klein, who at the time was a health care reporter with the Washington Post, explained that the left was pursuing a “sneaky strategy” to “put in place something that over time the natural incentives … move it to single payer.”

Could it be that Hatch, Reid and Klein were all right? It sure seems like it these days.

If so, the only way to stop the onward march to single payer would be to repeal ObamaCare and start over with free-market based reforms.

Good luck with that if Hillary Clinton wins the election in November.

Navy SEAL Who Killed Bin Laden Says Khan Part Of ‘Clinton Machine’

“There’s no mistake…”

Former U.S. Navy SEAL Rob O’Neill charged on Tuesday that Khirz Khan is “part of the Clinton machine” and pointed to the timing of the Muslim man’s address to the Democratic National Convention as proof.

Appearing on Fox Business Network’s Lou Dobbs Tonight, O’Neill, who killed Osama Bin Laden, said Khan’s appearance at the DNC was “unfortunate,” adding he shouldn’t be politicizing his son’s death in the Iraq War in 2004.

“And there was no mistake that he [Khan] came out for the Clintons,” said O’Neill. “He’s worked for the Clintons before and there’s been three presidential elections since his son was killed. And he could have come out for — this is one he decides to come out for. This is part of the Clinton machine.”
O’Neill continued, “There’s no mistake that Mr. Trump was interviewed by George Stephanopoulos. He’s in the Clinton camp as well and this is how Clinton politics work — as opposed to going on Hillary’s record, we’re just going to go on how bad you are.”

Stephanopoulos interviewed Trump on ABC News’ This Week on Sunday and asked him to comment on Khan’s claim that the Republican candidate had “sacrificed nothing” for his country. The news anchor was once a senior aide to President Bill Clinton.

Trump appeared to try to give Khan the benefit of the doubt regarding the tone of his remarks saying the man was clearly emotional and “looked like a nice guy.”

Rather than attacking Trump, O’Neill asserted, “Mr. Khan should be saying what can we do to defeat this [radical Islam]. He is a Muslim, Pakistani born, and all the work that he’s done in Saudi Arabia especially with bringing in migrants. We should be using people like Mr. Khan to how are we going to defeat radical Islam rather than yelling at each other back and forth.”

O’Neill believes the Khans did not honor their son’s sacrifice by their actions at the DNC. “If I had been in his situation and saw people politicizing my sacrifice and what I’d done, I’d be a little bit disappointed, because that’s not what it’s all about. He died a hero,” he said.

As reported by Western Journalism, Chris Mark, who served in a Marine Corps elite Force Reconnaissance unit, agreed with O’Neill. He wrote in an “Open Letter To Khizr Khan“ over the weekend: “I am troubled that you would allow a party that has little more than contempt for the US Service Member to parade you into the DNC to denounce Donald Trump.”
“As you continue to make the media circuit and bask in the glow of affection cast upon you by a party that has little regard for your son’s own sacrifice, and veterans in general, I would ask you to consider your comments and your position more closely,” he added.

CLINT EASTWOOD: Slams ‘P*SSY Generation’, Praises Trump & Hammers Hillary With HILARIOUS Insult

One of Hollywood’s premier tough guys weighs in on Election 2016. And Hillary wishes he hadn’t.

Some precious snowflake will read this, and run off to their “safe space” complaining about how they’ve been triggered. And that’s exactly what’s wrong with this generation.

We’ve got Universities — those centers of higher learning — where young people go to “learn new ideas” while being protected from new ideas their profs might disagree with. And when someone gets offended, they band together, start a hashtag campaign and demand a Dean somewhere gets fired.

So Clint Eastwood said we have a generation of Politically Correct Pussies. Everyone’s always accusing someone of being a racist. And that’s a load of BS. It wasn’t always that way.

‘We’re really in a p***y generation. Everybody’s walking on eggshells,’ the 86-year-old said.
‘We see people accusing people of being racist and all kinds of stuff. When I grew up, those things weren’t called racist. Secretly everybody’s getting tired of political correctness, kissing up.’
Dailymail
It’s hard to argue with his logic.

Contrast that with what he said about Trump:

‘What Trump is onto is he’s just saying what’s on his mind,’ he said. ‘And sometimes it’s not so good. And sometimes it is.
And he was asked about his choice for President:

‘I’d have to go for Trump … you know, ’cause she’s declared that she’s gonna follow in Obama’s footsteps,’ he told Esquire.

Continuing to discuss Clinton, the actor said: ‘I mean, it’s a tough voice to listen to for four years. It could be a tough one.‘ [emphasis added]
And why would she want to follow in those footsteps? Obama was, after all, just an empty chair.

Chicago: ‘Deadliest July in 10 Years’ for Gun Control Haven

chicago-crime-scene-police-getty-image-640x480

Facts are so inconvenient to libs. I wonder what percentage of victims and perps were black? This is what you get when brain dead liberals like Rahm and Obama are in control. Why doesn’t Obama walk the talk and settle on the Southside of Chicago when he saunters out of the WH? I’m sure all his Trayvon “sons” would welcome him with open arms. Meanwhile, CNN is focused on Trump eating KFC with a fork and knife.
July 2016 was the “deadliest July in 10 years” for heavily gun-controlled Chicago: Sixty-five individuals were shot and killed.

Moreover, according to the Chicago Tribune, such death figures do not set a new record — they simply tie a record set in 2006, when 65 individuals were killed in the month of July. This brings Chicago’s homicide total to “nearly 400” for the first seven months of 2016 alone. The number of homicides for the whole year of 2015 was 490.

Police Superintendent Eddie Johnson tried to abate the feeding frenzy on the July death numbers by pointing out that they are at least better than the numbers for June, “when 72 homicides were reported.”

Breitbart News previously reported that May 2016 was also a recording-setting month. Almost 400 people were shot and 66 people were killed in that one month. The Chicago Tribune reported May 2016 as the deadliest May since 1995, when 75 people were gunned down.

On August 2, the Chicago Tribune reported a total of 2,395 shooting victims in Chicago for the seven months of 2016. There were 2,988 shooting victims for all of 2015. These shootings come in spite of the city’s “assault weapons” ban, “violence tax,” strict rules on acquiring handguns, and micro-management of the number of gun stores in the city, as well as of the locations of those stores.

U.S. Sent Cash to Iran as Americans Were Freed

WASHINGTON—The Obama administration secretly organized an airlift of $400 million worth of cash to Iran that coincided with the January release of four Americans detained in Tehran, according to U.S. and European officials and congressional staff briefed on the operation afterward.

Wooden pallets stacked with euros, Swiss francs and other currencies were flown into Iran on an unmarked cargo plane, according to these officials. The U.S. procured the money from the central banks of the Netherlands and Switzerland, they said.

The money represented the first installment of a $1.7 billion settlement the Obama administration reached with Iran to resolve a decades-old dispute over a failed arms deal signed just before the 1979 fall of Iran’s last monarch, Shah Mohammad Reza Pahlavi.

The settlement, which resolved claims before an international tribunal in The Hague, also coincided with the formal implementation that same weekend of the landmark nuclear agreement reached between Tehran, the U.S. and other global powers the summer before.

“With the nuclear deal done, prisoners released, the time was right to resolve this dispute as well,” President Barack Obama said at the White House on Jan. 17—without disclosing the $400 million cash payment.

Senior U.S. officials denied any link between the payment and the prisoner exchange. They say the way the various strands came together simultaneously was coincidental, not the result of any quid pro quo.

“As we’ve made clear, the negotiations over the settlement of an outstanding claim…were completely separate from the discussions about returning our American citizens home,” State Department spokesman John Kirby said. “Not only were the two negotiations separate, they were conducted by different teams on each side, including, in the case of The Hague claims, by technical experts involved in these negotiations for many years.”

But U.S. officials also acknowledge that Iranian negotiators on the prisoner exchange said they wanted the cash to show they had gained something tangible.

Sen. Tom Cotton, a Republican from Arkansas and a fierce foe of the Iran nuclear deal, accused President Barack Obama of paying “a $1.7 billion ransom to the ayatollahs for U.S. hostages.”

“This break with longstanding U.S. policy put a price on the head of Americans, and has led Iran to continue its illegal seizures” of Americans, he said.

Since the cash shipment, the intelligence arm of the Revolutionary Guard has arrested two more Iranian-Americans. Tehran has also detained dual-nationals from France, Canada and the U.K. in recent months.

At the time of the prisoner release, Secretary of State John Kerry and the White House portrayed it as a diplomatic breakthrough. Mr. Kerry cited the importance of “the relationships forged and the diplomatic channels unlocked over the course of the nuclear talks.”

Meanwhile, U.S. officials have said they were certain Washington was going to lose the arbitration in The Hague, where Iran was seeking more than $10 billion, and described the settlement as a bargain for taxpayers.

Iranian press reports have quoted senior Iranian defense officials describing the cash as a ransom payment. The Iranian foreign ministry didn’t respond to a request for comment.

The $400 million was paid in foreign currency because any transaction with Iran in U.S. dollars is illegal under U.S. law. Sanctions also complicate Tehran’s access to global banks.

“Sometimes the Iranians want cash because it’s so hard for them to access things in the international financial system,” said a senior U.S. official briefed on the January cash delivery. “They know it can take months just to figure out how to wire money from one place to another.”

The Obama administration has refused to disclose how it paid any of the $1.7 billion, despite congressional queries, outside of saying that it wasn’t paid in dollars. Lawmakers have expressed concern that the cash would be used by Iran to fund regional allies, including the Assad regime in Syria and the Lebanese militia Hezbollah, which the U.S. designates as a terrorist organization.

MULTITRACK DIPLOMACY

July 2012 U.S. and Iran begin secret negotiations in Oman to resolve the nuclear dispute.
September 2013 President Barack Obama has 15-minute phone call with Iranian President Hassan Rouhani.
November U.S., Iran and world powers reach interim nuclear agreement that includes release of $700 million a month in frozen Iranian assets.
November 2014 Swiss invite Iran and U.S. to secret talks aimed at freeing Americans jailed in Tehran.
July 2015 Iran, U.S. and other powers reach landmark nuclear agreement to constrain Tehran’s nuclear program.
Jan. 16, 2016 Iran, U.S. and world powers formally implement nuclear deal.
Jan. 17 White House and State Department simultaneously announce prisoner swap and settlement of financial dispute that awards $1.7 billion to Tehran. Iran announced them separately.
July Iran announces arrest of third Iranian-American, after acknowledging two others held.
The U.S. and United Nations believe Tehran is subsidizing the Assad regime’s war in Syria through cash and energy shipments. Iran has acknowledged providing both financial and military aid to Syrian President Bashar al-Assad and deploying Iranian soldiers there.

But John Brennan, director of the Central Intelligence Agency, said last week that there was evidence much of the money Iran has received from sanctions relief was being used for development projects. “The money, the revenue that’s flowing into Iran is being used to support its currency, to provide moneys to the departments and agencies, build up its infrastructure,” Mr. Brennan said at a conference in Aspen, Colo.

The U.S. and Iran entered into secret negotiations to secure the release of Americans imprisoned in Iran in November 2014, according to U.S. and European officials. Switzerland’s foreign minister, Didier Burkhalter, offered to host the discussions.

The Swiss have represented the U.S.’s diplomatic interests in Iran since Washington closed its embassy in Tehran following the 1979 hostage crisis.

Iranian security services arrested two Iranian-Americans during President Obama’s first term. In July 2014, the intelligence arm of Iran’s elite military unit, the Revolutionary Guard, detained the Washington Post’s Tehran bureau chief, Jason Rezaian, and charged him with espionage.

A fourth Iranian-American was arrested last year. A former Federal Bureau of Investigation agent, Robert Levinson, disappeared on the Iranian island of Kish in 2007. His whereabouts remain unknown.

The Swiss channel initially saw little activity, according to these officials. But momentum shifted after Tehran and world powers forged a final agreement in July 2015 to constrain Iran’s nuclear program in return for the lifting of most international sanctions. A surge of meetings then took place in the Swiss lakeside city of Geneva in November and December.

The U.S. delegation was led by a special State Department envoy, Brett McGurk, and included representatives from the Central Intelligence Agency and Federal Bureau of Investigation, according to U.S. and European officials. The Iranian team was largely staffed by members of its domestic spy service, according to U.S. officials.

The discussions, held at the InterContinental Hotel, initially focused solely on a formula whereby Iran would swap the Americans detained in Tehran for Iranian nationals held in U.S. jails, U.S. officials said. But around Christmas, the discussions dovetailed with the arbitration in The Hague concerning the old arms deal.

The Iranians were demanding the return of $400 million the Shah’s regime deposited into a Pentagon trust fund in 1979 to purchase U.S. fighter jets, U.S. officials said. They also wanted billions of dollars as interest accrued since then.

President Obama approved the shipment of the $400 million. But accumulating so much cash presented a logistical and security challenge, said U.S. and European officials. One person briefed on the operation joked: “You can’t just withdraw that much money from ATMs.”

Mr. Kerry and the State and Treasury departments sought the cooperation of the Swiss and Dutch governments. Ultimately, the Obama administration transferred the equivalent of $400 million to their central banks. It was then converted into other currencies, stacked onto the wooden pallets and sent to Iran on board a cargo plane.

On the morning of Jan. 17, Iran released the four Americans: Three of them boarded a Swiss Air Force jet and flew off to Geneva, with the fourth returning to the U.S. on his own. In return, the U.S. freed seven Iranian citizens and dropped extradition requests for 14 others.

U.S. and European officials wouldn’t disclose exactly when the plane carrying the $400 million landed in Iran. But a report by an Iranian news site close to the Revolutionary Guard, the Tasnim agency, said the cash arrived in Tehran’s Mehrabad airport on the same day the Americans departed.

Revolutionary Guard commanders boasted at the time that the Americans had succumbed to Iranian pressure. “Taking this much money back was in return for the release of the American spies,” said Gen. Mohammad Reza Naghdi, commander of the Guard’s Basij militia, on state media.

Among the Americans currently being held are an energy executive named Siamak Namazi and his 80-year old father, Baqer, according to U.S. and Iranian officials. Iran’s judiciary spokesman last month confirmed Tehran had arrested the third American, believed to be a San Diego resident named Reza “Robin” Shahini.

Friends and family of the Namazis believe the Iranians are seeking to increase their leverage to force another prisoner exchange or cash payment in the final six months of the Obama administration. Mr. Kerry and other U.S. officials have been raising their case with Iranian diplomats, U.S. officials say.

Iranian officials have demanded in recent weeks the U.S. return $2 billion in Iranian funds that were frozen in New York in 2009. The Supreme Court recently ruled that the money should be given to victims of Iranian-sponsored terror attacks.

Members of Congress are seeking to pass legislation preventing the Obama administration from making any further cash payments to Iran. One of the bills requires for the White House to make public the details of its $1.7 billion transfer to Iran.

“President Obama’s…payment to Iran in January, which we now know will fund Iran’s military expansion, is an appalling example of executive branch governance,” said Sen. James Lankford (R., Okla.), who co-wrote the bill. “Subsidizing Iran’s military is perhaps the worst use of taxpayer dollars ever by an American president.”

Did Obama Copy a Scene from ‘Breaking Bad’ When He Sent $400 Million in Cash to Iran?

By Gary DeMar
The Wall Street Journal is reporting that “The Obama administration secretly organized an airlift of $400 million worth of cash to Iran that coincided with the January release of four Americans detained in Tehran, according to U.S. and European officials and congressional staff briefed on the operation afterward.

“Wooden pallets stacked with euros, Swiss francs, and other currencies were flown into Iran on an unmarked cargo plane, according to these officials. The U.S. procured the money from the central banks of the Netherlands and Switzerland, they said.”

Read related article: “Obama Secretly Paid $400 Million Dollar Ransom to Iranian Regime!“

There’s a scene from the AMC series Breaking Bad where a storage unit is opened and a large pallet of money is shown. Ill-gotten gains from the drug trade. It reminds me of Obama’s shady deal with Iran:

main-qimg-3d72e6ebb8e81d588da225e9dc6087d9
Is this where President Obama got the idea to send $400 million in untraceable cash to the Iranians? I can just see Hillary and President Obama looking over the $400 million in cash and saying, “Hillary, I’ve made it possible for you to do anything.”

If you or I attempted to move a large amount of cash out of the country, two things would happen. First, the cash would be confiscated, and second, we’d go to jail.

What President Obama did was illegal. “The $400 million was paid in foreign currency because any transaction with Iran in U.S. dollars is illegal under U.S. law.” He skirted this law by paying in foreign currencies. Again, if you or I did anything like this, we’d be serving time in prison. It’s a form of money laundering and structuring.

“Structuring, also known as smurfing in banking industry jargon, is the practice of executing financial transactions (such as the making of bank deposits) in a specific pattern calculated to avoid the creation of certain records and reports required by law, such as the United States’ Bank Secrecy Act (BSA) and Internal Revenue Code section 6050I (relating to the requirement to file Form 8300).”
But it’s OK if a Democrat President does it.

Moreover, if a Republican President had done this, it would be front page news everywhere.

Let’s see if the leftist news sources (1) report on the story, and if they do, (2) how will they spin it to absolve President Obama of any guilt.

OUR SICK PRESIDENT OBAMA WARNS CONGRESS THAT CRACKING DOWN ON TERRORISM WOULD VIOLATE IRAN NUCLEAR DEAL

iran112
Less than one month after the San Bernardino massacre that left 14 people dead at the hands of two radical Islamists, the Obama administration is warning Congress that their efforts to tighten the Visa Waiver Program would be a breach of the Iran Nuclear Deal that the administration struck earlier this year.

The Visa Waiver Program allows for citizens of participating countries to travel to the United States without first acquiring a visa as long as their trip is for tourism or business, and it does not exceed 90 days.

The program was called into question after the vetting process of the Obama administration was proven to be inadequate, both in theory and in practice.
FBI Director James Comey, in October, said that the intelligence communities do not have a way to screen terrorists out of incoming refugees and immigrants. He explained that countries like Syria have no stable database with which the Obama administration can access in order to ensure that each person is who they say that they are, and that their intentions are not nefarious.

In addition to the warnings from the FBI, Tashfeen Malik, a Pakistani born immigrant, passed through Obama’s vetting process with flying colors before joining her husband to slaughter American citizens.

Barack Obama has proven that he has no idea who he is letting into the country, and Republicans are trying to curb the incoming swell of people before American communities begin to look like those of Sweden or Germany who are facing similar problems.

Congress is currently considering measures that would restrict the Visa Waiver Program in an effort to reduce the number of terrorists who are using the program as a means of entering the country. There plan is to restrict entry to those who have visited countries that are considered to be terrorist hotbeds. One of those happens to be Iran, and they are not happy.

In response to Congressional measures to restrict the program, Iran has accused Congress of harassment and charges that the actions directly violate the terms of the nuclear agreement between their nation and Obama.

Representative Chris Murphy (D-CT) has said,

“There has been a suggestion because there is an element of the agreement that obligates us to not to take steps that would stop economic relations between other nations and Iran that we could perhaps be in jeopardy of breaching the agreement.”

Iran accuses the measures of violating Iran’s economic relationships with other countries, and therefor will violate the newly made Iran nuclear deal.

This could be double good news for America. Congress may be able keep more terrorists from entering the country, and, at the same time, invalidate Obama’s highly controversial Iran Nuclear Deal in one swoop.

As the country is still trying to put together the pieces of the Dallas ambush of police by Black Lives Matter, one cop says the president OBAMA is to blame.

William Johnson, who runs the National Association of Police Organizations, took to the airwaves to lambast the president’s lack of foresight in his treatment of groups such as Black Lives Matter, stating that their rampant radicalization making violence inevitable while the commander in chief twiddled his thumbs.

“’I think [the Obama’s administration] continued appeasements at the federal level with the Department of Justice, their appeasement of violent criminals, their refusal to condemn movements like Black Lives Matter, actively calling for the death of police officers, that type of thing, all the while blaming police for the problems in this country has led directly to the climate that has made Dallas possible,’ William Johnson, the executive director of the National Association of Police Organizations, said in an interview with Fox on Friday morning.

“‘It’s a war on cops,’ Johnson also said. ‘And the Obama administration is the Neville Chamberlain of this war.’
“Obama on Friday morning strongly condemned the Dallas shootings, which happened at the end of a protest about the killings of two black men by police officers earlier this week, as a ‘vicious, calculated and despicable attack.’”
Barack Obama’s soft stances on several matters of national security have been called into question lately, including this fight to allow Syrian refugees to enter the country unabated, and now this inability to recognize and condemn a hate group when he sees one.
The head of a law enforcement advocacy group lashed out at President Barack Obama in the wake of the Dallas shootings that left five police officers dead, accused the president of carrying out a “war on cops.”
“I think [the Obama administration] continued appeasements at the federal level with the Department of Justice, their appeasement of violent criminals, their refusal to condemn movements like Black Lives Matter, actively calling for the death of police officers, that type of thing, all the while blaming police for the problems in this country has led directly to the climate that has made Dallas possible,” William Johnson, the executive director of the National Association of Police Organizations, said in an interview with Fox on Friday morning.

Johnson said although the Thursday night shooting of law enforcement officers reminded him of “the violence in the streets in the 60’s and 70’s,” he pointed out how Obama’s response appeared different than his predecessors.
“I think one of the big differences then was you had governors and mayors and the president — whether it was President Johnson or President Nixon, Republican or Democrat — condemning violence against the police and urging support for the police,” Johnson said. “Today that’s markedly absent. I think that’s a huge difference, and that’s directly led to the climate that allows these attacks to happen.”
“It’s a war on cops,” Johnson also said. “And the Obama administration is the Neville Chamberlain of this war.”
Obama on Friday morning strongly condemned the Dallas shootings, which happened at the end of a protest about the killings of two black men by police officers earlier this week, as a “vicious, calculated and despicable attack.”
“Let’s be clear there are no possible justifications for these attacks or any violence towards law enforcement,” he said from Warsaw, Poland, where he is attending a NATO meeting

On Thursday, before the Dallas shootings, Obama tried to strike a balance as he talked about anger and grief in the African-American community after the latest killings by police and the feeling among some law enforcement officials that Obama has not always supported them.
“To be concerned about these issues is not to be against law enforcement,” he said. ”When people say black lives matter, it doesn’t mean blue lives don’t matter.”
Other law enforcement groups on Friday called for better relationships between cops and their communities.
DC Police Union Secretary Jimmy White admitted there was a clear racial disparity in the criminal justice system, and police officers needed better relationships with their communities.
“To put all the blame on one aspect of the problem is incorrect. You can’t just say it’s only Obama that has created this culture,” White told POLITICO on Friday. “We have to look into communities, into employment, we have to look into everything.”
“It just seems that there could be more effort by our government as far as making sure that the playing field is leveled,” the secretary said.
White also criticized trends on social media like #BlueLivesMatter or #BlackLivesMatter, saying “we focus too much” on labels instead of addressing the community’s needs.
“There is a balance between giving the public what they want and keeping our police officers safe,” he said. “We are hurting as an agency and as a union and we just wish that the events of yesterday did not happen and never happen again. We will grow, we will heal from this, and we will watch each other’s backs.”
Chuck Canterbury, national President of the Fraternal Order of Police, said he would encourage the Department of Justice to investigate the Dallas shooting as a hate crime.
“Nobody should die because of the color of their skin and nobody should die because of the color of the uniform that they’re wearing either,” he said in an interview with NPR on Friday.
Canterbury added that individual officers “are not in control of their training,” pointing out that police in Chicago “have been asking for Taser training for almost eight years.”
“Less-than-lethal methods need to be improved every day. Police officers would like that. Nobody goes to work, pins on a badge or a star and wants to end somebody else’s life,” the FOP president said.
