"Don't Cry For Me America"

By Capt Joseph R. John, August  27, 2015

By clicking on the below listed link, you will be able to view a message about what happened to Argentina that Congressman Barry M. Goldwater, Jr, the 

Co-Founder and Board of Directors member of the Combat Veterans For Congress PAC would like every American Citizen to view.  In the early 20th Century Argentina, like the United States is today, was one of the richest and most economically developed countries in the world.   “Don’ Cry For Me Argentina” was composed in 1976 for the musical “Evita”, it was composed in the same year that the United States was celebrating 200 years of individual freedom and economic prosperity because of the success of The Free Enterprise System.  In 1976, while the US was celebrating, Argentina was in the throes of a civil war, whose seeds of destruction had been planted by Socialists and Progressives who had come to power in Argentina and changed their Free Enterprise System into a Socialist Welfare State.  By 2001, Argentina had a turbulent economic, social, and political crisis that resulted in an extended and severe depression, unsustainable international indebtedness, an unprecedented bank run, and the collapse of its economy. 

 

Like the United States is today, in 1902, Argentina was in a dominant position among the industrial nations of the world and was blessed with an abundance of natural resources.  Eventually the Progressives and Socialists took control of the government of Argentina; they increased taxes every year to unacceptable levels like current US tax policies today, taxed the wealthy & successful business leaders in Argentina oppressively just like Obama and Hillary are aggressively promoting to do in the US today, Argentina provided massive welfare programs for non-working members of society like the Socialists and Progressives in the Obama administration are doing in the US today, Socialists in Argentina provided Socialized medical care for millions of people who did not work and it drove the government’s cost of medical care to unacceptable levels, progressives in Argentina approved union & government pension plans that were excessive and could no longer be funded like state and federal government retirement programs in the US today, Argentina had to borrow billions of dollars each year to fund their Progressive and Socialist programs like the Obama administration has been doing for nearly 7 years, and Argentina’s Progressive and Socialist programs eventually drove the country into such massive national debt that Argentina could no longer repay even the interest on the national debt which exceeded the Gross National Product.   

 

Today, 100 years after it was an economic powerhouse, Argentina is poverty stricken and its economy is in shambles.  Obama and Hillary are promoting the same type of Socialist and Progressive welfare programs that will take the United States down the same road to poverty and bankruptcy that Argentina traveled.  Because of Obama’s tax and spend Progressive and Socialist policies,  the US is debt laden with $19 trillion in debt, and has never recovered from the economic downturn 7 years ago. The Republic has been saddled with Obama’s failed economy, is forecasted to grow at less than 2%/year, and has a real unemployment rate of 9% with 104 million unemployed Americans, with tens of millions of Americans who have stopped searching for employment, and with nearly 50 million Americans on food stamps.  The out of control national debt funded in large part by China will be driven to over $20+ trillion by the end of Obama’s term in office (but the momentum of Obama’s failed economic policies will drive the national debt to exceed $22 trillion for several years after Obama leaves office).  Obama is not solely to responsible, the irresponsibility lack of leadership on fiscal policy issues by the Congressional leaders on both sides of the isle is also to blame; each year Congress ignores the fraud, waste and abuse in a bloated and out of control federal bureaucracy, and instead of reining in the out of control spending, they raises the national debt ceiling year after year.  

 

The US economy, like Argentina’s economy 100 years ago, has been undercut by Obama’s tax and spend Socialist policies, by the Progressive unsustainable welfare programs for Illegal Immigrants and people who game the unemployment programs, and by the Socialist members of Congress who promote open borders and sanctuary cities.  Those Progressive and Socialist policies that have opened the Republic to rampant criminal activity by convicted Illegal Alien felons, while at the same time they have planted the seeds for future terrorist attacks by allowing Radical Islamic Terrorist to enter the US thru the UN Moslem only Refugee Resettlement Program without checking the refugee backgrounds for terrorist ties.  At the same time, Obama’s open borders policy is allowing Radical Islamic Terrorists to simply walk across the wide open southern border.  Business as usual by politicians in Washington is being rejected by very frustrated American voters; 45 % of the electorate are supporting individuals running for president who have never been elected to any political office.

 

The below listed video explains how Argentina’s Free Enterprise System was destroyed by Socialist and Progressive politicians who took control of the government of Argentina.  We encourage you to forward the video to those associates in your address book who care about the viability of the United States’ Free Enterprise System that built the most effective economic engine in the history of mankind, and those who care about the individual freedoms guaranteed to American citizens by the US Constitution.  The US Constitution and The Free Enterprise System have been under relentless assault by Socialists and Progressives in Congress and in the Obama administration for neasrly7 years.

Unlike the US, Saudi Arabia Is Building A 600-Mile 'Border Wall' To Shield Itself From Radical Islamic Terrorists

By Capt Joseph R. John, August  24, 2015

For nearly 7 years, American citizens have been told by the Obama administration, the left of center liberal media establishment, La Raza, and the leadership in Congress that it is impossible to build an effective border wall across the wide open southern border, in order to keep out Radical Islamic Terrorists, drug smugglers, human traffickers, convicted Illegal Alien criminal felons, Central American children carrying infectious diseases, Illegal Aliens from 50 countries worldwide, and a to prevent a new influx of Mexican Illegal Aliens from entering the United States.  

 

Although the funding required to build a border wall across the wide open southern border has been funded by Congress, the Obama administration refuses to build an effective border wall.  The San Diego Sector of the Border Wall was built as a result of the pressure placed upon the Department of Homeland Security by retired Congressman Duncan L. Hunter, USA/Ranger, when he was Chairman of the House Armed Services Committee, and for over the last 9 years the San Diego Sector Border Wall has been proven to be very effective in excluding Illegal Aliens.  

 

The 5500 mile long Great Wall of China that is 21 feet high, was built in 476 BC and was effective for over 1700 years.  In 1953, the DMZ was created and spans the 160 mile wide Korean peninsula; it has been an effective border wall for 63 years.  The 87 mile Berlin Wall was built in 1961 and was a very effective border wall for over 28 years.  In 2004, Israel built a 403 mile border wall that is 25 feet high and has been effective at excluding Radical Islamic Terrorists from entering Israel.  Saudi Arabia is well on its way to completing a 600 mile border wall that has been very effective at excluding Radical Islamic Terrorists from entering the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia; the wall is described in the below listed article.  

 

The will of the American citizens have been intentionally ignored for the last 25 years by the US Chamber of Commerce, congressional leaders on both sides of the isle, the left of center liberal media establishment, La Raza, supporters of Illegal Immigration, and for nearly 7 years by the Obama administration; they continue to allege that an effective border wall across the wide open southern border cannot be built.  The US does not need to build a solid wall across the entire 2000 mile wide open southern border.  There are high traffic areas where a border wall must be built, there are other areas where the southern border can be controlled by employing mobilized national guard troops, drones, and sophisticated sensors, or a combination of one or more of them.  

 

During the annual migration of Illegal Alien children from Central America, encouraged by Obama’s Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals Program, over 400,000 of children with their chaperones flooded across the wide open southern border in July 2015 alone.  They were all released into the interior of the United States by the Border Patrol without being properly quarantined, in violation of Federal Immigration Laws.  Since the massive influx of Illegal Alien children from Central America, who have not been medically screened, the United States has had outbreaks of numerous illnesses that were once eradicated such as dangerous strains of Flu, Scalia, TB, Measles, Mumps, Rubella, Smallpox, Leprosy, Malaria, and in August 2015 there were 3 deaths from plague in 3 states—those outbreaks of infectious diseases have been covered up year after year by the Obama appointees in the Center for Disease Control.  For every day the Obama administration continues to violate Federal Immigration Quarantine Laws, infectious diseases will continue to spread to the general population and American citizen children who are required to attend grammar school classes with Illegal Alien children from Central America with infectious diseases.  The average annual education cost per Illegal Alien child is $12,401 reaching a gross national cost for American taxpayer of nearly $1 billion.  Grammar schools across the nation are straining their educational resources with the repeated annual influx of Illegal Alien minors, and classroom sizes have increase to 50 students per class in many cities where they are being resettled, while progress in learning has been slowed to unacceptable levels, because so many of the students do not speak proper English negatively affecting learning.

 

American voters have been expressing their anger with Washington career politicians because for nearly 7 years, they have watched the effective elimination of the US Immigration System, the failure of the US government to enforce & protect the borders of the United States, and watched while one Federal Law after another has been violated by the Obama administration.  Americans from both parties and independents have been flocking to the banner of non-politicians and conservatives who are seeking their party’s nomination to run for the Presidency.  Those non-politicians and conservatives, running for president, have tapped into many of the below listed deep seated concerns of American citizens, and because year after year, career politicians have continued to promise to take certain action if they were re-elected, then after they were elected, have refused to take the corrective action they promised the voters they would take after they were elected.  

 

Some of the concerns of American citizens are the failure of Congress to close the wide open southern border, the failure of Congress to rein in the out of control spending by the irresponsible Obama administration, the failure of Washington politicians to use the power of the purse to repeal Obamacare which has driven the cost of health care thru the roof, the failure of Congress to use the power of the purse and the Federal Courts to enforce Federal Immigration Laws, the failure of the Congress to employ the power of the purse when passing the DOD budget in order to halt Obama’s  unilateral disarmament of the US Armed Forces to levels before WWI, the failure of elected members of Congress to take action to oppose “Political Correctness” in a bloated federal bureaucracy, the failure of the Congress to take action in Federal Court and legislatively to oppose the repeated violations of Federal Laws by the Obama administration, and the failure of Congress to abide by the US Constitution in its passage of International Treaties which they have allowed Obama to call “Agreements.” The American voters believe the system is broken, and no longer trust career politicians in Congress to correct the above listed serious failures in governing the Republic.

Saudi Arabia Is Building A 600-Mile 'Great Wall' To Shield Itself From ISIS

When a raiding party from Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant attacked a Saudi border post last week, it was no mere hit on a desert outpost.

The jihadists were launching an assault on the new, highest-profile effort by Saudi Arabia to insulate itself from the chaos engulfing its neighbors.

The Saudis are building a 600-mile-long “Great Wall” — a combined fence and ditch — to separate the country from Iraq to the north.

The 600-mile wall and ditch Saudi Arabia will build with Iraq is an effort to insulate itself from the chaos engulfing its neighbors. 

Much of the area on the Iraqi side is now controlled by ISIS, which regards the ultimate capture of Saudi Arabia, home to the “Two Holy Mosques” of Mecca and Medina, as a key goal.

The proposal had been discussed since 2006, at the height of the Iraqi civil war, but work began in September last year after Isil’s charge through much of the west and north of the country gave it a substantial land border with the Kingdom to the south.

The border zone now includes five layers of fencing with watch towers, night-vision cameras, and radar cameras.

Riyadh also sent an extra 30,000 troops to the area.

It is not the only fence with which Saudi Arabia has chosen to surround itself. Despite the difficulty of access to westerners, the country is relatively open to fellow Muslim nations, particularly during the Haj season when pilgrims from across the world come to Mecca and Medina.

However, that is changing in changing times.

It has also created a physical barrier along parts of the even longer, 1,000-mile border with Yemen to the south.

The attack last week is the sort of incident the Saudis hope to avoid. Three border guards, including General Oudah al-Belawi, commander of border operations in Saudi Arabia’s northern zone, were killed.

All four attackers also died.https://pixel.newscred.com/px.gif?key=YXJ0aWNsZT1iMDRiNTEwOTFmZGZkNjAyY2U3MDNjZWM4YTFhNjEwNiZwdWJsaXNoZXI9NzMwZWI4NmFiNTlmMGQ0MTkyNmFjNjViMDFmODNlMmY=


U.S. Acquiescence To A Bad Iran Deal Was No Mistake

By Capt Joseph R. John, August 15, 2015

In the below listed Op Ed, Admiral James L. Lyons, former Commander-in-Chief of the US Pacific Fleet, highlights a whole range of Obama policies that have intentionally weakened the Republic militarily and economically over the last 6 ½ years, with little opposition from members of the US Congress.  Obama’s dangerous intent to “Change” the very nature of the United States from a Republic to a Socialist State has also been free from exposure because the left of center liberal media establishment has been in league with Obama.  

 

Admiral Lyons exposes the Iranian initiative which Obama and Valerie Jarrett initiated in 2008 to change alliances in the Middle East in favor of Iran.   It didn’t matter that Iran, the largest state sponsor of terrorism in the world, had been killing and maiming thousands of members of the US Armed Forces for the past 35  years and continues in that policy today in Afghanistan—any agreement that didn’t simply demand that Iran stop killing members of the US Armed Forces in Afghanistan is a bad agreement on the face of it.  

 

Iran’s ultimate goal is to destroy the state of Israel, then attack the United States with nuclear weapons atop intercontinental ballistic missiles.  It has taken Obama nearly 7 years, but now it appears Obama and the Democratic side of the isle in Congress are well on their way to facilitating an international agreement to allow Iran to become a nuclear power, while giving them $150 billion to continue their international terrorism.  The agreement permits Iran to be within a danger thrust away from the hearts of the United States’ traditional Sunni allies in the Middle East, who are now developing their own nuclear weapons in self-defense.   

 

In the 2016 election, the American voters must go to the polls and remove members of Congress who continue to repeatedly make false promises to the voters in their Congressional Districts and states, but have no intention to protect and defend the US Constitution following their elections, especially those members in Congress who are supporting Obama’s dangerous Iranian International Nuclear Weapons Treaty, called an Agreement because of the failure by the Republican leaders in Congress.   The Obama administration will promote voter fraud once again, as they have in the last two presidential elections, and we will watch to see if the Republican establishment will finally get off dead center and spend some of the millions of dollars they raise to do anything about it, instead of just feathering their nests.

 

The leaders in Congress have not safeguarded the US Constitution on International Treaties with both this Iranian International Nuclear Weapons Treaty and the unconstitutional TPA International Trade Treaty that permits Obama to negotiate the Fast Track Trade Promotional (TPP) in Secret with 11 other Pacific Rim countries (which no American has been ever permitted to view since it was signed into law in June 2015).  That International Treaty will eliminate US sovereignty in favor of International Tribunals and effectively destroy the US Immigration system by allowing million Illegal Immigrants to enter the US from 50 countries, and be issued Work Permits, including allowing a new crop of millions of Illegal Mexican workers; those millions of Illegal Immigrants with work permits will unfairly compete at lower wages with 104 million unemployed Americans and undermine The Free Enterprise System.

 

We encourage you to read Admiral Lyons below listed riveting article and provide support for the endorsed and elected Combat Veterans For Congress listed on the Endorsements page of our Web site, and for a new slate of endorsed Combat Veterans For Congress who we will be endorsing leading up to the 2016 election.  Those we endorse are Combat Veterans who previously repeated put their lives on the line to protect their fellow comrades, and to also protect and defend the US Constitution and our way of life; they will work tirelessly to continue to protect and defend the US Constitution.

U.S. acquiescence to a bad Iran deal was no mistake

By James A. Lyons - - Tuesday, August 11, 2015

There is no shortage of critics of the recently concluded nuclear agreement that President Obama has reached with the evil Iranian theocracy. All the "known concessions" by the Obama administration should come as no surprise. Make no mistake — these concessions were not due to incompetence nor the inability to negotiate. They are part of the president's planned agenda to fundamentally transform America by diminishing our stature and credibility. It is another example of his misguided view that America must be humbled for the many "problems" we have caused throughout the world.

Mr. Obama's game plan on how to negotiate with the Ayatollah Ali Khamenei had its genesis in the summer of 2008. According to scholar and author Michael Ledeen, around the time when candidate Barack Obama received the Democratic Party's nomination, he opened a secret communication channel with the Iranian theocracy. The go-between was Ambassador William G. Miller, the former U.S. ambassador to Ukraine, who spoke fluent Farsi from his previous tours of duty in Tehran.

The message was, "Don't sign an agreement with the Bush administration. Wait until I am president — you will get a much better deal! You will like my policies. I am your friend." Here is a country that has cost thousands of American lives. Furthermore, all Americans should never forget that it was Iran that provided the key material and training support to the September 11 hijackers. Without that support the attack could not have been carried out, and some 3,000 innocent Americans who were doing nothing more than going to work would be alive today. Yet our president told this regime that he was their friend.

This borders on treason and most certainly violated the Logan Act, which forbids private citizens from interfering in government diplomacy.

The endless Kabuki dance that went on in Geneva and Vienna was not only an embarrassment for all Americans, but more importantly, it "conceded America's honor," an honor that has stood on bedrock principles which hundreds of thousands of Americans have paid the ultimate price to protect. Our nation was humiliated. This treaty must be rejected.

While being challenged throughout the world, the Obama administration continues with its senseless unilateral disarmament of our military forces, thereby jeopardizing our national security. As if disarmament were not enough, our military is being forced to train the military forces of our potential enemies. Specifically, Chinese infantry troops are being trained in the United States. Moreover, the Chinese navy was invited to participate in the 2014 Rim of the Pacific fleet exercise and has been invited again to participate in the 2016 fleet exercise to be held off the coast of Hawaii, alongside all of our major Pacific allies. We clearly are compromising our tactics, techniques and operations.

Compounding the problem is the use of our military as a social engineering laboratory to advance Mr. Obama's political and social agenda. With regard to the promotion of the gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender lifestyle, my late friend M. Stanton Evans in his monumental 1994 book "The Theme is Freedom" had it right when he called it a return to the "pagan ethic."

Clearly, the Obama administration is attacking the American way of life from all aspects. Our open border policy makes absolutely no sense. We have anywhere from 11 million to possibly as many as 30 million illegal immigrants within our borders. Sanctuary cities are also in clear violation of immigration laws. The welcome mat has been put out by the administration so that the more recent illegal immigrants are able to draw upon a wide range of taxpayer benefits, including food stamps, health care and earned income tax credit for three years, all at the American taxpayers' expense. However, the overwhelming majority of immigrants come here as the result of our visa policies. The U.S. issues the treasured "green card" to approximately 1 million immigrants per year, most of whom are unskilled. They are immediately entitled to numerous benefits at taxpayers' expense. Congress must act to limit the number of green cards issued.

Releasing illegal immigrants from jail with criminal records is a deliberate affront to all Americans. Seeding throughout the country Muslim immigrants who have no intent to assimilate is another affront and tears at the fabric of our society.

Compounding the immigration crisis, is the Obama administration's inclination to divide Americans by race and class. This is unconscionable. You are either an American entitled to all the benefits that being an American conveys, or you are not. Those are the only two classes. The first one is sacred.

The corruption of our government agencies, fostered by the Obama administration, should not be overlooked. The selective enforcement of our laws and traditions has lowered Americans' respect and trust of those agencies. However, taken in the aggregate, the fundamental transformation of America is taking place with no objections from Congress and the Supreme Court, which are supposed to prevent illegal and unconstitutional acts by an out-of-control president. Congress and the high court, and for that matter, our military leadership, are complicit in these illegal actions by not faithfully executing their oaths of office. This cannot stand. As Thomas Paine stated, "These are the times that try men's souls." With our corrupt leadership, it is now time to take back America.

SSgt Matt Amos, USMC—A Wounded Combat Veteran and Double Leg Amputee, Setting an Excellent Example by Pulling Himself Up By His Bootstraps

By Capt Joseph R. John, August 8, 2015

Matt Amos spent 10 years in the US Marine Corps.. He was medically retired in 2013, after sustaining the loss of both of his legs in Sangin, Afghanistan in 2011, following multiple combat tours. He spent two years in recovery at the US Naval Medical Center (Balboa), San Diego, CA; where he was able to rehabilitate himself with the help of some of the best US Navy Corpsmen, Navy Nurses, physical therapists, and Navy doctors.  The below listed link at the end of this article relays Matt’s heroic story, and was forwarded by SA Robert M. Hamer, FBI (Ret) USMC, a Marine who works tirelessly to help Wounded Combat Veterans in the US Naval Medical Center (Balboa) and in the Wounded Warrior Battalion West at the US Marine Corps Base, Camp Pendleton, CA.

He still tells everyone he was honored to serve in the US Marine Corps with 1st Battalion, 7th Marines, 24th Marine Regiment, and 1st Battalion, 5th Marines, 1st Marine Regiment, where he recalls that he served with the finest men and women the nation has to offer. He lost friends in combat, who paid the ultimate sacrifice in the Worldwide War on Terrorism.  In honor of those fine men and the memory of their comradery, he continues to press on – despite his life changing injuries – and he does so with a positive attitude, while retaining a passion for serving others. 

Matt has been blessed to receive help from many others during his recovery and transition to civilian life. He created his products, and founded his own company to market Admiral’s pennant.  While Matt operates his company, he has never forgotten, and also volunteers with numerous veteran’s charities and organizations. He is passionate about helping service member’s to transition smoothly into civilian lives, as well as working to raise funds in order to help other wounded combat veterans to help them obtain the same opportunities he received.  

Matt has a very professional Web site, is very serious about his business, has five separate blends, and is working hard to make his company a success. We admire Matt’s “I can do spirit”; he is an American Warrior, a patriotic entrepreneur, and hard-working businessman who created a new business to support his wife & children, and has been doing this with very little outside help,   He plans to release a line of men’s care products, including “beer soap”(the alcohol is boiled out and the remaining hops would be excellent for skin care).

http://admiralspennant.com/beard-oils/  

 

Matt’s main goal is to live his life in a manner that his Fallen Brothers would be proud of.  We encourage you to pass this E-mail on to your fellow US Marines, Combat 

 

Veterans, other members of the US Armed Forces, other veterans, and anyone else who would consider purchasing one of Matt’s products, in order to give Matt a boost.

 

Please consider purchasing one of this Honorable and Heroic US Marine’s products.  If you determine you can’t use it, please consider purchasing it as gift for someone you

 

respect and/or love-----the Good Lord will Bless you for your support for American Patriot who has given his all in the defense of the Republic.  Semper Fi.

Senator Tom Cotton Catches Obama Red-Handed Violating An International Treaty

By Capt Joseph R. John, August 6, 2015

Senator Tom Cotton, Cpt-USA, (R-AR-Senate), an endorsed Combat Veteran For Congress, has alerted the US Senate that the occupant of the Oval Office, has already violated the International Iranian Nuclear Weapons Treaty (called an Agreement by the inept leadership in Congress) as explained in the below listed article, because portions of the agreement will remain SECRET.  Keeping portions of agreements that Obama enters into with foreign countries, seems to be the way he is able to prevent American citizens from seeing what he is up to, and the Congressional leadership can’t do anything about it.  

 

The Congressional leaders allowed Obama to reverse the Constitution safeguards, put in place by the Founding Fathers, which require a 2/3 vote of Congress, in order to pass the any International Treaty, including the Iranian International Nuclear Weapons Treaty.  Instead the Congress allowed Obama to reverse that process, and are now congress requiring a 2/3 vote, in order to be able to defeat the flawed Iranian International Nuclear Weapons Treaty.   

 

There is also a SECRET side deal in the Unconstitutional International Iranian Nuclear Weapons Treaty, called an Agreement, that the Republican leadership in Congress rammed thru Congress despite the American people’s objections.  It is a SECRET 800 page Fast Track Trade Promotion (TPP) Bill which Obama signed into Law on July 3rd.  The American people still are not being permitted to see what is in that Unconstitutional Fast Track trade Promotional Law; it will undercut current United States Immigration Laws and  Regulations.  It will allow Obama to issue work permits to millions of Illegal Immigrants from 50 countries, to allow them to enter the United States without proper screening by Immigrations Inspectors to determine if they have terrorist ties, where they would compete for scarce jobs with 104 million unemployed American workers

Senator Cotton Catches Obama Red-Handed Violating the Law He JUST Signed

 

05 Aug 2015

 

by Randy DeSoto, USMA ‘89

 

Freshman Senator Tom Cotton, R-Ark., found that President Barack Obama is already in direct violation of a law he just signed in late May regarding the Iran nuclear deal.

The Iran Nuclear Agreement Review Act specifically provides that Congress must receive “all nuclear agreement documents, including any related to agreements ‘entered into or made between Iran and any other parties.’ It expressly includes ‘side agreements.’ This requirement is not strictly limited to agreements to which the U.S. is a signatory,” Sen. Cotton and Rep. Mike Pompeo wrote in a joint op-ed in the Wall Street Journal last week. 

Cotton and Pompeo recount that they traveled to Vienna a few weeks ago to meet with officials of the U.N. International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA). There, they learned “that certain elements of this deal are—and will remain—secret.” They further discovered that those involved with the talks, including the Obama administration, specially allowed the IAEA and Iran to have two side deals.

The first has to do with the IAEA’s inspection of the controversial Parchin military complex. The site is a suspected location of Iran’s long range missile and nuclear development. The second side deal has to do with what the nation must reveal about its nuclear program to date.

The legislators argue that both are vital issues if the deal will have any chance of success. They also make clear that the administration has been inconsistent in its responses regarding the existence of these agreements and whether Congress will have access to review them.

The two sent a letter to the Obama administration requesting access to all relevant information, so the agreement can be adequately reviewed.

To ensure there is enough time for this review, Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, introduced a resolution last Thursday calling for the clock to not start until all relevant “side deals” are made available to Congress, according to The Hill.

His resolution reads, in part:

The 60-calendar day period for review of such agreement in the Senate cannot be considered to have begun until the Majority Leader certifies that all of the materials required to be transmitted under the definition of the term ‘agreement’ under such Act, including any side agreements with Iran and United States Government-issued guidance materials in relation to Iran, have been transmitted to the Majority Leader.

Dan Calabrese, writing for CainTV, called into question the whole premise of the Iran Nuclear Agreement Review Act, noting it runs contrary to the Constitution. Congress has a way to approve treaties–and it is not by majority vote in both Houses, which the president can veto. “It’s called treaty ratification, and it requires two-thirds of the Senate. For congressional Republicans to give Obama an alternative [only requiring him to sustain a veto] to that is one of the most mind-blowingly stupid things I can ever remember them doing. And that’s saying something.”

US History Curriculum Corrupted by Obama’s Department HEW

By Capt Joseph R. John, August 3, 2015

 

In President Ronald Reagan’s administration, and for 212 years prior to his Presidency, the amazing and unique US History of the Republic was taught to the nation’s youth in grammar, junior high, and high schools, using US History text school books that documented an accurate record of the Founding Fathers principles and the true US History of the Republic.  Under the Obama administration, the “positive lessons” previously taught about US History, extolling America’s support for human rights, freedom of religion, the value of the Second Amendment, the importance of the US Constitution, The Bill of Rights, and the independence of man from an oppressive government bureaucracy, have been effectively eliminated from US History text books.  

 

Many of the positive events that highlighted the greatness of America’s Founding Fathers, that were previously taught to the nation’s youth in US History classes are no longer taught in the nation’s schools.  The new redacted US History curriculum developed by the Obama administration presents a critical view of the Republic and the Founding Fathers.  An inaccurate version of US History is being force fed to the nation’s youth, at the direction of the Progressive, Left-wing Ideologues, Socialists, and Communists in the Obama administration who now control the education agenda.  They use the power of the purse to control the content of the curriculum in all 50 states, to force the purchase of newly produced inaccurate US History text books on school systems across the nation, and they demand compliance of the 50 State Departments of Education, before they will contribute the federal assistance funds to the 50 state’s Departments of Education.  

 

The Obama administration’s has nationalized school curriculums, and did so without the need to seek a single vote to make such a dramatic change in the politically correct version of US History being taught in schools nationally.  The Obama Department of HEW has effectively redacted and/or changed the US History text books and curriculums once taught in the nation’s schools, and over the last 6 ½ years there has been no attempts by the Republican Leadership in Congress, to demand that the Obama Department of HEW restore the accuracy and exceptionalism of the Republic’s US History curriculum being taught in the nation’s schools.   Progressives, Left-wing, Ideologues, Socialists, and Communists appointed to positions of leadership in the Department of Health, Education, and Welfare have “CHANGED” US History text books by eliminating many accurate facts, redacting information, instituted politically correct version of US History, while minimizing the exceptionalism of the Republic’s US History in newly developed text books, and in the curriculum being taught.  Foremost in the Founding Father’s minds when they were creating the US Constitution, was the lesson they learned from their study of world history, of how the Republican form of government in Rome fell to the dictatorship of Caesar, and how “Self-Government of the People” and liberty of the United States would be threatened if the lessons of the Founding Father’s principles were not taught in US History classes.  The Socialist, Left-wing Ideologues, Progressives, and Communists have always been intent on “Changing” America, by sweeping aside US History, and destroying The Free Enterprise System.

 

For the most part, teacher no longer focus on promoting Patriotism as they once did in the 1940s.  The courageous stories of how the Founding Fathers quest for freedom from the heavy taxation, imposed upon the Colonists by the English Monarch, and how they had to put their lives at risk to draft and sign the Declaration of Independence, is no longer taught in the Obama administration’s nationalized and politically correct US History curriculum.   Today,  students are not taught the details about the content of the US Constitution, about importance & content of The Bill of Rights, the details of the American Revolution War of Independence, the details of the Civil War, they are not taught that the United States was the “first country in the world” to free its slaves, that the US entered WWI and WWII to free millions of oppressed & enslaved people from Nazi Socialism, Italian Fascism, Japanese Imperialism, and Communist Socialism.  Much of the “Traditional Story of America”, the Republic’s unique US History, and the true story of its quest for & the defense of individual freedoms, has been effectively eliminated from grammar, junior high, and high schools US History text books and Civics courses.  

 

America’s best and brightest high school students are now required to take the controversial new Advanced Placement US History (APUSH) test, crafted by many of the same left-wing ideologues — including David Coleman — who birthed the unpopular Common Core standards for Math and English. Scholarly critics of the APUSH framework are waking up to the dangers of the 70 or more pages of framework demanded to be used for teaching US History by the College Boards in 2012.  That rework of US History testing by the College Boards is designed to replace the original five pages framework and general topics for US History that were previously used for teaching the under-girding and foundation for US History to the nation’s youth. 

The Progressives, Left-wing Ideologues, Socialists, and Communists in the Obama Administration have been instituting programs to teach the nation’s youth “A corrupted version of American History that is no longer accurate, not thorough in detail, and not complementary about the principles that have guided the Republic for 239 years.  Any adult who doesn’t believe that statement should simply read any US History book being force fed to students in grammar, junior high, and high schools today; those text books eliminate a great deal of the US History once taught in the nation’s schools.   

 

By applying pressure, the Department of Health Education and Welfare, was able to get the College Board Advanced Placement US History Test changed, as discussed above, and eliminate many of the questions about US History that were once the hallmark of the College Board Exams.  David Coleman, the President of the College Board, has authorized the changes to the Advancement Placement US History Tests given to students about American’s History---the modified answers force students to accept a very Progressive and corrupted point of view, instead of the accurate version of US History and the “Traditional Story of America.”  Over the last 6 ½ years, by using the new modified, politically correct, and redacted version of US History in newly published US History text books, while teaching the corrupted Obama administration’s version of its US History curriculum, the nation’s youth no longer know much about the true US History of the Republic.  

 

The story of America’s exceptionalism in US History, in the view of Left-wing Ideologues, and Progressives, is that it is a quaint and excessively positive notion that must be discredited through their programs of re-education of US History, that is being force fed to grammar, junior high, and high school students.  The Left-wing Ideologues believe that, without proper re-training and re-education of a politically correct version of US History, American’s youth will exhibit excessive bias and hostility against those who try to degrade American exceptionalism and Patriotism.  Left-wing ideologues decry the Patriotism that emanates from teaching the nation’s youth the previous accurate record of the US History of the Republic, of highlighting Patriotism in the classroom, pointing out American exceptionalism, and underlining the importance of individual freedoms guaranteed to every American citizen in The Bill of Rights.  

 

“Stanley Kurtz, a scholar, author, and social critic from Pittsburgh, PA, who obtained his Ph.D. in Social Anthropology from Harvard University, won numerous teaching awards and has written several books.  He was initially one of the liberal professors who shifted his views and became more conservative after observing numerous wrenching instances of hypocrisy and oppressive political correctness being forces upon students by other professors, while he was on the faculty of Harvard University and the University of Chicago.  Kurtz argues that “Progressives have been working to undercut the “Traditional Story of American,” and they have been trying to cover up the understanding of how the principles of liberty and equality have worked well for over 239 years to unify American citizens who came from various backgrounds.  Instead of teaching the “Traditional Story of American”, Progressives have instead focused on oppression and hyper sensitivities about issues concerning race, gender and class that have been intentionally dividing Americans by race, gender, and class since the Obama administration came to power, creating bigotry and hatred in the United States (that destabilizing agenda has been led by the senior staff members of the occupant in the Oval Office for the last 6 ½ years).  

Commenting on the narratives that had been driven in the Ferguson race riots and the gang rape hoax at the University of Virginia, Kurtz says, “young people who are coming out of their Progressive US History classes, are being primed for those kinds of bogus crusades against American exceptionalism” being taught a false narrative of oppression, by liberal professors, who don’t like or support the “Traditional Story of America”, the teachings by those liberal professors actually trump facts.  As for what citizens can do, Kurtz recommends more criticism of the APUSH framework by more scholars who are learning of the inaccurate US history being taught in schools, and have become alarmed by Obama’s nationalization of America’s education.  Grassroots activists are encouraged by Kurtz to have their state legislators pass resolutions condemning the new 70 page corrupted College Board framework recommended for teaching US History and are should ask them to reinstate the accurate tests of the true versions of US History, in order to avoid corrupted, politically correct, and Progressive version of College Board test answers.  (From “The Daily Caller”, by Gini Thomas)

With the help of the left of center liberal media establishment, the Obama administration has tried to “CHANGE” the view of America citizens from that of supporting US Sovereignty to modify their views so they will become “Global Citizens”.  Obama has pushed many global and UN initiatives to accomplish that goal, such as his repeated attempts to force the UN’s Small Arms Treaty to be accepted by the US Congress which Secretary Kerry signed even though Congress rejected it (the UN Small Arms Treaty violates the Second Amendment), by forcing the nation to abide by the TPP/TPA Law that abandons US Sovereignty in favor of abiding by the rule of International Tribunals (allowing millions of illegal aliens to enter the US from 50 countries without checking their backgrounds for terrorist ties), by Obama’s recent push to by-passing of the US Congress in seeking to first gain the UN’s vote of approval of the Iranian International Nuclear Weapons Treaty before Congress has an opportunity to vote on it (an International Treaty improperly called an Agreement because of the inept leaders in Congress who let that occur), by encouraging hundreds of thousands Muslim refugees to enter the US via the UN Resettlement Program which excludes the entry of Christians refugees (allowing that to continue without checking their backgrounds for potential terrorist ties)  The FBI now estimates that upwards of 250 of those entering Muslims have traveled or tried to travel to Iraq to kill Syrian and Assyrian Christians in the ISIS current genocide of Christians.  With the acquiescence of the leaders in Congress, for 6 ½ years, Obama has kept the southern border wide open and unsecure, so hundreds of thousands of illegal aliens from Central American, Mexico, and the Middle East (including Radical Islamic Terrorists) have been able to simply walk across the wide open border, and enter the US unimpeded.

 

By opening US to the UN Resettlement Program to include only Muslims (the US has resettled more Muslim refugees that all the nations in the world combined), and by effectively eliminating all US borders with the TPP/TPA Law, that will permit millions of illegal immigrants from 50 nations to enter the US without security checks to determine if they have terrorist ties, Obama has been promoting trans-globalism.  He has been trying to “CHANGE” the US population from that of Patriotic American citizens to “Global Citizens,” from many nations with no allegiance to the principles the Republic was founded on.  Obama support for all these programs over the last 6 ½ years have been antithesis to America’s democratic form of government.   If the US were not to continue to be the sovereign independent Republic the Founding Fathers created, its citizens would not be free.  The Obama administration has been trying to move the Republic away from its independence and sovereignty toward trans-global governance abiding and governed by UN International Treaties and UN Regulations.  

 

The Republican Leadership in Congress have not safe guarded “Self-Government by the People’—they just gave the American citizens government by International Tribunes with the TPP/TPSA Law that they ramrodded thru Congress.   Asked about the Obama administration’s emphasis on creating “Global Citizens” as opposed to understanding the Founding Fathers principles of “Self-Government by the People”, America, conservative scholars say, Progressives, Left-wing Ideologues, Socialists, and Communists in the Obama administration decry American exceptionalism and belittle “Self-Government by the People.”  Instead, they value trans-globalism, open borders, the US abiding by all United Nations Treaties & Regulations, and expanding the welfare state to CHANGE the Republic into a Socialist State.

 

By clicking on the below listed link “country knowledge “, you will be able to take a US History test created by Bill O’Reilly the National News Anchor on the FOX News Network.  He did America a favor, by developing this very simple test to bring home the point, that even simple history questions can no longer be answered by the nation’s youth—in the 1950s the nation’s youth would have easily answered every question of his test correctly.  We encourage you to take the below listed US History test, then give it to your children and grandchildren, and pass it on to those in your address book who would want the youth of the nation to be taught an accurate version of the US History and the “Traditional Story of America”.  By viewing the results of the test taken by the youth in your family, you will fully appreciate just how completely Obama has nationalized and corrupted the US History curriculums being taught in the nation’s schools.  The Republican leaders in Congress have done nothing to try to restore the true and accurate US History being taught in the nation’s schools.  

 

The “Traditional Story of America”, the details of the US Constitution, and The Bill of Rights should be taught to the students in schools across the nation, not the current corrupted version of US History driven by the Progressives in the Obama administration.  The “Traditional Story of America” is what has set the United States of America apart from other nations for 239 years, and why since 1776, over 1.3 million members of the US Armed Forces have made their last full measure of devotion in combat in the defense of the Republic.

Almost $200 Million Donated to Congressmen to Vote for Unconstitutional TPP/TPA & Eliminate US Sovereignty in Favor of International Tribunals

By Capt Joseph R. John, July 29, 2015

Please watch the two below listed very short videos, by clicking on the link, you will fully understand just how Speaker Boehner and Senate Majority Leader McConnell have betrayed what American citizens voted for in 2014.  By ramming the SECRET 800 page Fast Track Trade Promotional (TPP) Bill and the Trade Promotion Authority (TPA) Bill thru Congress, that nearly 4 weeks after it was signed into law, American citizens are still not being permitted to read it.  

TPP and TPA violate the US Constitution and eliminates US Sovereignty in favor of International Tribunals.  The Republican leadership ignored the demands of millions of Americans who have been demanding that Congress to reduce illegal immigration by a substantial majority of 3 to 1 in a national opinion poll, and are treating American citizens as if they have no right to know what law they have passed---hiding the fact that it violates the US Constitution.  Even though the Republican Congress controls the power of the purse, Obama has not lost a single major policy battle since Cong Boehner became Speaker of the House in 2010; in fact, Obama is delighted with Boehner’s Speakership.   On July 3rd, when Obama signed the Unconstitutional SECRET TPP/TPA bills into law, Boehner and McConnell were nowhere to be found, they were hiding during the signing ceremony, that law is a thorn in the side of every American voter who worked tirelessly to give the US House a conservative majority.

Both Democrat and Republican Congressmen received of over $200 million in payments from the International Chamber of Commerce to vote for the TPA Bill (the US Chamber of Commerce is no longer a US Chamber, most members are now anti-American foreign corporations who control the Speaker and the Senate Majority Leader with financial payoffs).  If the TPA Bill hadn’t passed, the provisions in the SECRET TPP Bill stated it would not have become effective.  Millions of dollars in payments that were paid to members of Congress by the International Chamber of Commerce as outlined in the below listed article, bribed Congressmen.   

Speaker Boehner received $5.3 million, Cong Ryan received $2.4 million, and it was reported that McConnell received $9 million to ram TTP thru Congress for Obama.  Their complicity and close cooperation with Obama, Pelosi, and Reid is what guaranteed the payoffs of millions of dollars to them; there support for TPP/TPA will result in permit Obama to bring in millions of non-Christian Illegal Aliens from 50 countries (including Mexico) to enter and work in the US.  Millions of Illegal Aliens added to the 20 million Illegal aliens already here, will destabilizing the US unemployed work force of 104 million Americans, and strike another blow to the Free Enterprise System.  

Millions of Illegal Aliens from 50 countries will be able unfairly compete with 104 million unemployed Americans and 46 million Americans on Food Stamps, because 5 or 6 illegals co-habituating in the same apartment, will be able to work at a much lower wages than Americans can afford to do.  Unlimited entry of foreign workers into the US, with no background investigations, to determine if they have terrorist ties, will continue to violate Federal Immigration Laws (ISIS Radical Islamic Terrorists have let it be known that they plan to enter the US using the TPP as cover).  

The FBI recently informed Congress that over 200 Muslim immigrants, who were put on a fast track for US Citizenship by Obama, are now fighting with ISIS killing Christians in Iraq.  Because the SECRET TPP passed, the massive pending entry of illegal aliens will effectively eliminate US Immigration controls, because a percentage of the millions of foreigners whose backgrounds will not be reviewed for terrorist ties, will pose a very serious terrorist threat to the National Security of the United States, the SECRET TPP/TPA Law is not only leaving the porous Southern Border wide open, but has effectively eliminating “all” US Borders.  

Congressional sources reported that Boehner has withheld millions of dollars of campaign support for conservatives Congressmen who voted in favor of their constituents conscious and refused to support TPP.  In some cases, Congressmen lost assignments, or were ridiculed, mocked, and relentlessly pressured because they wouldn’t vote for the SECRET Unconstitutional TPP Bill, or the TPA Bill-------very few Congressmen who voted for the TPP Bill even read it’s 800 pages.   

We object to the way that Speaker Boehner and Cong Ryan met out punishment against some of the endorsed and elected Combat Veterans For Congress who didn’t toe the line, but instead, voted against the unconstitutional 800 page SECRET TPP/TPA Bills.  They voted against it because it violated the Constitutional authority of Congress, violated US Sovereignty of the United States in favor of International Tribunals, opposed it because no American citizen has ever been allowed to read what is in the SECRET TPP Law, and they opposed Cong Paul Ryan’s steady stream of misinformation about what he was alleging was in the Unconstitutional SECRET TPP bill and the TPA Bill.  

The following Combat Veterans For Congress refused to support that Unconstitutional and SECRET TPP Bill:

Cong Duncan D. Hunter, Maj-USMCR (R-CA-50)

Cong Steve Pearce, Capt-USAF (R-NM-2)

Cong Paul Cook, Col-USMC (R-CA-8)

Cong Chris Gibson, Col-USA (R-NY-20)

Cong Scott Perry, Col/PA-ARNG (R-PA-4)

Cong Steve Russell, LTC-USA (Ret) (Ranger) (R-OK-5)

Cong James Bridenstine, Lcdr-USNR (R-OK-1)

The new TPP Law is not and has never has been about “Free Trade”, the nation already had “Free Trade” without the need for the 800 page SECRET TPP Bill, and the 196 page TPA Bill that the a plurality of members of Congress never read before they voted for them.  The American voters should ask their Congressmen on this Congressional recess why the TTIP and the TISA portions of both Bills are still being cloaked in SECRECY, even after they were signed into law on July 3rd.  The US Government is a Republic, not a dictatorship run by 5 individuals  (Obama, Boehner, McConnell, Pelosi, and Reid).   In 2016, the American voters should elect new members of Congress who then elect leaders of congress who will protect and defend the US Constitution from the repeated assault by the Caucus of Progressives, Leftist, Marxists, and Communist members of Congress. 

Speaker Boehner and Leader McConnell not only betrayed the American voters for millions of dollars in payoffs, but they fully funded Obamacare, funded the amnesty for 5 million Illegal aliens Obama planned to give alimony to, funded the federal Common Core curriculum pushing it into American schools thru the 50 State Education Departments, continue to refuse to enact legislation to close the wide open southern border, have never opposed Obama’s use of tax payers dollars to cover the cost of the UN Resettlement Program for hundreds of thousands of Muslims while excluding the resettlement of over 300,000 Christians fleeing ISIS genocide in the Greek Catholic Refugee Program, have struck a secret deal with Pelosi & Reid to give Congress special exemptions from Obamacare, and have not used the power of the purse to prevent Obama from degrading the strength of the US Armed Forces to levels below the level of strength they had prior to WWI.   The Congressional leadership has failed to oppose Obama’s devastating “Changes” in America’s family values and the US Armed Forces; the American voters should insist that their Congressmen make “Change” in the leadership of Congress, and elect leaders who will oppose the devastating Socialist  “Changes” Obama has been making in the Republic. 

Almost $200 Million Donated to Representatives to Pass TPA

June 16, 2015   Paola Casale

Many think our government is for sale. However, by taking a look at the facts below provided by the Open Secrets, it is easy to understand where they are coming from. Looking back at Friday the 12th, the House voted on Trade Promotion Authority (TPA), the controversial bill that gives power to the executive branch to negotiate treaties. TPA limit’s Congress’ ability to better a trade deal by subjecting members of Congress to 90 days of reviewing the trade agreement, prohibiting any amendments on the implementing legislation, and giving them an up or down vote. TPA passed with a mere 219-211 vote with only 218 needed to pass. The real shocker comes from the amount of money each Representative received for a yes vote. In total, $197,869,145 was given to Representatives for a yes vote where as $23,065,231 was given in opposition.

  • John Boehner (R-OH) received $5.3 million for a “yea” vote and was the highest paid legislator.
  • Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) received $2.4 million for his “yea” vote.
  • Paul Ryan (R-WI) received $2.4 million for a “yea” vote and came in at the third highest paid legislator.
  • Pat Tiberi (R-OH) follows Paul Ryan, coming in the fourth spot having received $1.6 million for his “yea” vote.

The fifth highest paid legislator is somewhat of a “hero” in comparison to others. Representative Steny Hoyer (D-MD) received $1.6 million for a yes vote and only $282,710 for a no vote. Despite of his high contribution from those in favor of TPA, he still voted a solid nay.  However 28 Democrats joined Boehner to vote for TPA and were financially rewarded by the Chamber of Commerce.

House Democrats to call before Fast Track Vote

 

We also have real Democratic and Republican hero stories.

  • Joe Crowley (D-NY) was offered 1.3 million for a “yea” vote and only $72,550 for a “nay” vote and he still voted against TPA.
  • Patrick Murphy (D-FL) was offered 1.1 million for a “yea” vote and only $213,360 for a “nay” vote and still voted against it.
  • Richard Neal D(MA) was offered $1.1 million for a “yea” vote and a mere $47,625 for a “nay” vote and still voted against it.
  • Mick Mulvaney (R-SC) was offered $541,746 for a “yea” vote and no money at all for a “nay” vote and he still voted “nay!”
  • Andy Harris (R-MD) was offered $254,803 for a “yea” vote and no money at all for a “nay” vote and he still voted “nay”.
  • Thomas Massie (R-KY) was offered $250,328 for a “yea” vote and no money at all for a “nay” vote and he still voted “nay.”
  • Dana Rohrabacher (R-CA) was offered $180,832 for a “yea” vote and no money at all for a “nay vote” and he still voted “nay.”

Where did this kind of money come from? Those in favor of TPA were Security Brokers and Investment Companies who donated a whopping $11.3 million dollars for a “yea” vote. Or big banking companies who donated $10.1 million dollars. In other words, Wall Street hashed out millions and millions of dollars to push for the passage of TPA.

Those numbers are absolutely staggering. Corporations are taking control of what policies are approved or blocked in the U.S. We cannot sit around while corporations decide what is “good” for America or not! This is a democracy, not a plutocracy! Contact your representatives and let them know that you do not want them to vote in favor of TPA!

President Ronald W. Reagan, 40th US President of the United States, (US Army Veteran)

By Capt Joseph R. John, July 28, 2015 

It has been twenty-six years, since the American people lived through the Reagan Revolution; and took it for granted that the nation was safe from the domestic threats.  The American people have watched their once safe environment dramatically change over the nearly 7 years that the Obama administration has been in control, there are now dangerous activities that threaten the stability of the nation being conducted by Progressives, Leftists, Marxists, Communist, Black Nationalists, convicted criminal Illegal Aliens, and ISIS Radical Islamic Terrorist.  Domestic enemies have gained strength as they actively try to destabilize the Republic; at the same time the Obama administration is working to effect “CHANGE” in The Free Enterprise System by promoting Socialism.  

 

America was fortunate to have a steadfast and Patriotic leader like President Ronald Reagan in the Oval Office for 8 years.  He learned from his long life experience and the lessons of history, how to best protect the nation, and carefully guided the Ship of State thru the shoal waters of a dangerous world at the onset of his Presidency.  President Reagan always supported the Judeo/Christian principles upon which the Founding Fathers framed the US Constitution for the Republic in 1776.  Under President Reagan’s leadership, the nation followed US Federal Immigration Regulations signed into Laws by previous Presidents, and he always protected and defended the US Constitution.   

 

In Ronald Reagan’s Presidency, and for 212 years prior to his Presidency, the amazing and unique US History of the Republic was taught to the nation’s youth in grammar schools, using school books that relayed an accurate record of founding principles and US History.  Under the current administration, many of the “positive lessons” previously taught in the US History curriculum in grammar schools, extolling America’s support for human rights, freedom, and independence, have been eliminated from Us History school books.  Much of the positive events about the greatness of America’s pioneers, that were previously taught to the nation’s youth, in grammar schools, for over 200 years are no longer taught in grammar schools.  Today the curriculum tends to presents a negative and critical view of US History which is force fed to the nation’s youth, as directed by progressive, leftist, and Socialists in the Obama administration who control the education agenda being directed to the 50 state’s Departments of Education.  

 

Obama’s Department of Health Education and Welfare has employed their control of Congressional funding for the 50 state’s education programs, as a Damocles Sword, held over the heads of State’s Departments of Education, requiring them to purchase specific history books and force feed the contents of those corrupted views of US History printed in these new Progressive US History books that schools are forced to purchase; there are few options to purchase the same types of  US History books that were once used in public education (students have even had to listen to attacks on Thomas Jefferson and other Founding Fathers in their classrooms).  

 

Thousands of high school graduates know very little about the Pilgrims, the Founding Fathers, the US Constitution, the Revolutionary War, the Civil War, how the US freed millions of oppressed & enslaved people in WWI & WWII while not retaining any of the territory the US conquered, the nation’s youth do not know that the US was the “first country in the world” to free it’s slaves, students in many cases do not know who was the first and subsequent US Presidents of the Republic, and know so little about the history of the Republic.       

 

When President Reagan was sworn into office, he focused on building the strength of a weakened US Armed Force (his slogan was “Peace Thru Strength”), he created the “Star Wars” strategic defense initiative that among other things created the Patriot Missiles Batteries used in Operation Desert Storm, protected the American people from domestic enemies, reined in the out of control & reckless spending by irresponsible members of Congress, strengthened The Free Enterprise System that created the most successful economic engine in the history of mankind, turned around the 20% unemployment & inflation rates he was faced with upon entering office,  protected “Freedom of Speech and Religion” guaranteed to all Americans by the 1st Amendment, guaranteeing the rights of all Americans to purchase & bear arms in accordance with the 2nd Amendment, always sought the consent of 2/3rd of the US Senate for the approval of all International Treaties as required by the US Constitution, fired the Traffic Air Controllers for illegally striking in violation of federal law & safety regulations, gave a speech in Berlin encouraging Russia to “Tear Down This Wall” which resulted in the elimination of the Iron Curtain, and gave many enthusiastic speeches for 8 years championing the freedom & opportunity that is America to nations throughout the world.

 

For nearly 7 years, the nation has sorely lacked President Reagan’s type of competent leadership---the Middle East is aflame, Russian aggression in Crimea and Ukraine has met with little opposition, ISIS Radical Islamic Terrorists are threatening & attacking the US’ traditional allies in the Middle East, the Obama is plagued by one scandal after another, the US Armed Forces has been weakened to levels before WWII, Illegal immigration is out of control, Obama and Holder have repeatedly attacked Law Enforcement Officers instead of trying to rein in criminal activity and looting of stores in the street riots, Obama is allowing Iran to develop nuclear weapons, and 104 million unemployed Americans are suffering from the current lack leadership on the economic front.

 

How fortunate we were to live thru the Reagan Revolution, to have witnessed such a wise, perceptive, and measured leader for 8 remarkable years. When President Reagan finally turned over the reins of a secure government 26 years ago, he left the nation with a very strong US Armed Force, his administration had the longest economic expansion & job growth in US History, and it was a time when America was in a strong leadership position in a very stable world.

Saudi Prince Bandar bin Sultan Stated The U.S. Nuclear Pact with North Korea failed. The Iran Deal is Worse.

Prince Bandar bin Sultan, the Saudi Arabian Ambassador to the United States between 1981 and 2005 has written the below listed damning column, in which he compares the Iranian Nuclear deal to the failed nuclear weapons deal with North Korea---and concludes it will have even worse consequences.  The reader doesn’t have to be a rocket scientist to fully understand—Obama is knowingly entering into a very bad and DANGEROUS deal for the America people. 

Prince Bandar stated, with regard to the Iranian Nuclear Weapons Agreement that Obama has damned the United States with, “the strategic foreign policy analysis, the national intelligence information, and America’s allies in the region’s intelligence, all predict not only the same outcome of the North Korean nuclear deal, but (it will be) worse---with billions of dollars that Iran will have access to.”

 

It is now obvious that Saudi Arabia, in self-defense, will develop its own Nuclear Weapons Program, and other pro-western Middle East allies like Egypt, Jordan, Turkey, Kuwait, etc. will follow suite.  By entering into the flawed Iranian Nuclear Weapons Agreement, Obama has assured Iran that it will be able to develop nuclear weapons, and by doing so he has created a nuclear weapons arms race in the Middle East.

 

Obama has been working closely with the largest state sponsor of terrorism in the world, a terrorist regime that has been killing Americans for 35 years, and is determined to destroy the United States and Israel.  Unfortunately, SECRET provisions that no member of Congress will ever be permitted to read has been agreed to by Obama.  The SECRET provisions of the Iranian Nuclear Weapons Agreement is another attempt by Obama to bypass the US Congress, just like he bypassed the will of the American voters with the SECRET Fast Track Trade Promotional Law(TPP).

 

The Republican leadership in the House and Senate struck another deal with Obama to allow Obama to refer to another “International Treaty” as an agreement, this time with regard to the Iranian Nuclear Weapons Agreement.  They previously struck a deal with Obama on the SECRET TPP,.800 page, Law that very few members of Congress read before they voted for it.  Obama is now able to be push the Iranian Nuclear Weapons Agreement  thru Congress, because of a previous agreement with the Republican leadership.   

 

Instead of abiding by the US Constitution and demanding the Iranian International Nuclear Weapons Agreement be treated like what it really is—an “International Treaty”, requiring a 2/3rd vote in the US Senate for approval, before it could be agreed to with Iran, the Republican leadership  instead agreed with Obama to turn that provision around.  Now, in order for Congress to “defeat” the Iranian Nuclear Weapons Agreement, it will, instead require a 2/3rd vote of the Congress “to defeat it, not to approve it”—it is a betrayal of American citizens and unconstitutional..  

 

It has been over 3 weeks since the TPP was signed into law, the American people are still being prevented from reading the contents of that International Treaty, being referred to as an agreement by the Obama administration.  The Iranian Nuclear Weapons Agreement also has SECRET provisions in the provisions on inspections; only Iran and the UN’s IAEA inspectors are being permitted to read those provisions, no member of the US Congress is being allowed to read those SECRET inspection provisions.  

 

The Iranian military’s progress on nuclear weapons development is being excluded from review in the Iranian Nuclear Weapons Agreement, so that the analysis of Iran’s develop of nuclear weapons can’t be evaluated or predicted in the future.  In addition, at the Iranian Parchim Military Nuclear Weapons Research and Development Facility, the IAEA is being prevented from collecting soil samples, only Iranians will be permitted to collect and test soil samples, so progress in Iran’s nuclear weapons development program at that Iranian R &D military facility will be kept hidden from the US.

 

Any member of Congress who votes for the very dangerous Iranian Nuclear Weapons Agreement that Obama approved, an agreement that will arm Iran with nuclear weapons with which to strike the United States and its Middle East allies, should be defeated in 2016, or be removed from office by a recall election.

Saudi Prince Bandar: The U.S. nuclear pact with North Korea failed. The Iran deal is worse.

Prince Bandar bin Sultan, the Saudi ambassador to the United States between 1981 and 2005, has written a damning column in which he compares the Iran nuclear deal to the failed nuclear deal with North Korea -- and concludes it will have even worse consequences.

Writing for the London-based Arabic news Web site Elaph, Badar suggests that President Obama is knowingly making a bad deal, while President Bill Clinton had made a deal with North Korea with the best intentions and the best information he had. The new deal will "wreak havoc" in the Middle East, which is already destabilized due to Iranian actions, Bandar writes.

Writing about the failed deal with North Korea, which was agreed in 1994 and collapsed in 2003, Bandar says, "it turned out that the strategic foreign policy analysis was wrong and there was a major intelligence failure." He added that if Clinton had known the full picture, "I am absolutely confident he would not have made that decision."

The Saudi royal then contrasts this with the present situation with Iran, "where the strategic foreign policy analysis, the national intelligence information, and America’s allies in the region's intelligence all predict not only the same outcome of the North Korean nuclear deal but worse – with the billions of dollars that Iran will have access to."

Bandar says Obama is smart enough to understand this but that he is ideologically willing to accept collateral damage because he believes he is right.

The United States and North Korea signed the Agreed Framework in 1994, after North Korea announced its intention to withdraw from the nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT). Under the agreement, North Korea committed to freezing its nuclear weapons program in exchange for aid, causing significant controversy in the United States. The next U.S. administration, led by President George W. Bush, took a much more aggressive stance on the agreement, and in 2002 it confronted North Korea with accusations that it had been attempting a clandestine uranium-enrichment program.

In response, North Korea restarted its nuclear program, and the country withdrew from the NPT in 2003. Subsequent attempts to reach an agreement over nuclear weapons have failed. North Korea conducted its first nuclear test in 2006 and is currently believed to possess around 10 to 16 nuclear weapons (exact estimates vary). Experts say it is working to improve upon the size and sophistication of its nuclear arsenal.

Bandar is far from the first to contrast the situation in 1994 and now: The failure of the talks with North Korea has been a specter hanging over the talks with Iran.

However, there's disagreement over how to interpret any lessons taught by the failure of the North Korean deal: As The Post's Glenn Kessler has written, the Agreed Framework may have failed, but it did stall North Korea's nuclear ambitions. Analysts have pointed out that the two situations have many differences. The Carnegie Endowment's George Perkovich, for example, has argued that Iran has stronger incentives to stick to a deal than North Korea ever did.

Bandar is a major voice in Saudi foreign affairs. He was the longest-serving Saudi ambassador to Washington and headed the Saudi intelligence services between 2012 and 2014. His conclusion will carry weight in some circles: "People in my region now are relying on God’s will, and consolidating their local capabilities and analysis with everybody else except our oldest and most powerful ally," he writes.

The Saudi prince says the new Iran deal and other developments in the region have led him to conclude that a phrase first used by Henry Kissinger – “America’s enemies should fear America, but America’s friends should fear America more" – is correct.

Senator Tom Cotton Comes Out Swinging Against Iran Deal: 'Congress Will Kill' This


In March of this year, as reported in the below listed article by TPM Livewire, Senator Thomas B. Cotton, Cpt-USA (R-AR-Senate), an endorsed Combat Veterans For Congress, sent an open letter to the leaders of Iran, cosigned by 47 US Senators, that said a “flawed nuclear arms agreement” would be dangerous to the United States, and would be nullified by the US Congress.

Senator Cotton, an Iraq Combat Veteran, has been the most vocal opponent of a nuclear agreement with Iran.  In his recent appearance on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” show, Senator Cotton came out swinging, and took issue with the fact that the agreement allows  "where necessary, when necessary" inspections of Iran's nuclear sites rather than "anytime, anywhere" access to those sites, he recently stated:

"This proposed deal is a terrible, dangerous mistake that's going to pave the path for Iran to get a nuclear weapon while also giving them tens of billions of dollars of sanctions relief, even lifting the arms embargo at a time when they're destabilizing the entire middle east," 

 

The American people stand with Senator Cotton in opposition to this flawed Nuclear Weapons Agreement:

 

President Reagan famously said in his negotiations with Russia, “Trust, but Verify.”

 

The American people watched Obama negotiated for three years, while Iran continued to cheat on every agreement they entered into, and as recently as 4 days ago they chanted:

“Death to America”  

 

“There is No Trust” 

 

Iran is the world’s largest state sponsor of terrorism, has been killing thousands of Americans for 35 years, and the flawed Nuclear Weapons Agreement Obama is entering into with Iran gives a 24 day notice, before anyone can inspect any nuclear development facility in Iran, and it precludes the inspection of any military facilities.  There is:

 

“There is Absolutely No Verification”

 

The language in the agreement states inspections will be "where necessary, when necessary"------not 24/7 surprise anywhere, anytime inspections.

 

The agreement says nothing about intercontinental ballistic missiles, which is a fatal flaw and the most dangerous omission in the agreement.  Even if Iran were delayed in building their own nuclear weapons, and they are not, by provisions of the agreement, the International Atomic Energy Administration (IAEA) still needs 24 hour notice before it can inspect Iran’s nuclear weapons development program.  The failure to cover the inspection of the development of Iran’s intercontinental ballistic missile weapons development program will permit Iran to obtain smaller configured nuclear weapons from North Korea, to place atop their intercontinental ballistic missiles.  There is no way that activity can be inspected or whether it can be determined if Iran has an operational nuclear tipped intercontinental ballistic missile, until it is fired at an adversary.

 

How the Obama could have easily stopped a nuclear armed Iran: what were the alternatives:. 

1)      Iran is utterly desperate to have sanctions lifted. They want to sell oil, they want to buy arms, including the technology to build intercontinental ballistic missiles that can strike Israel, Europe, and the US---the US should have kept the sanctions on until Iran stopped killing Americans in Afghanistan and had 24/7 surprise anywhere, anytime inspections.  

2)      Iran wants billions of dollars in frozen assets returned that they will use to fund worldwide terrorism---the US should not release the frozen assets until the four US hostages are released.  

3)      Iran wants the US to give them $150 billion that they will use to empowers Hezbollah and the Qids Force by funding their terrorism activities—under no circumstance should the US give Iran $150 billion with which to fund worldwide terrorism against the US and their allies in the Middle East.

4)      The US should threaten to give Saudi Arabia, Jordan, Egypt, Bahrein, UAE, and Kuwait the option of basing a US nuclear armed force on their soil  that would be able to retaliate with nuclear weapons, if Iranian did strike any of the above listed allies, unless there were no 24/7 surprise anywhere, anytime inspections. 

5)      The US should threaten to provide Israel, with stealth bombers that they can use to strike Iran, if Iran continues to threaten the destruction of Israel.   

6)      Do not lift the Arms Embargo under any condition, unless Iran allows 24/7 surprise anywhere, anytime inspections of military sites.

 

What did the US and its allies get in the flawed Nuclear Weapons Agreement?

  

      Iran did not free four US hostages like Obama freed Iranian prisoners who threatened the US.

      Iran did not say they would stop killing Americans military personnel in Afghanistan with IEDs.      

      The US and NATO did not get 24/7 surprise anywhere, anytime inspections like they were told they would get on entering negotiations.
 
     Iran did not allow inspections of military sites.

      Iran did not stop threatening to destroy Israel.  

      Iran and their leaders did not stop saying “Death to America.”

      Iran entered into a secret agreement with the IAEA on inspections that has been excluded from the US Senate


 

The agreement Obama entered into is an International Treaty on Nuclear Weapons Development with Iran, that should have required a  2/3rd approval by the US Senate in accordance with the US Constitution—it is not an agreement that can be approved by an Executive Order, and the Republican leadership of the US Senate should use every conceivable senate parliamentary rule to preclude the approval of an International Treaty using an Executive Order, 

  

Obama is intentionally arming Iran with nuclear weapons with which they can use to attack Israel, the US allies in the Middle East,  and the United States!  He is fueling an nuclear weapons arms race in the Middle East which may lead to WWIII.

 

Any US Senator who votes to approve this very dangerous agreement, that threatens very survival of the Republic, should be considered a traitor to the United States, and should be removed by impeachment from office.

Senator Tom Cotton Comes Out Swinging Against Iran Deal: Congress Will Kill' This

 

By Catherine Thompson Published July 14, 2015, 9:25 AM EDT 8645 views 

The freshman senator who made waves earlier this year when he sent an open letter to Iran's leaders said Tuesday that a landmark nuclear deal struck with that country was "dangerous" and will be nullified by Congress.

"This proposed deal is a terrible, dangerous mistake that's going to pave the path for Iran to get a nuclear weapon while also giving them tens of billions of dollars of sanctions relief, even lifting the arms embargo at a time when they're destabilizing the entire middle east," Sen. Tom Cotton (R-AK) said in an appearance on MSNBC's "Morning Joe." "The American people will repudiate this deal and I believe Congress will kill the deal."

Cotton, an Iraq War veteran and the youngest member of the Senate, has been the most vocal opponent of a nuclear deal with Iran. He sent an open letter to Iran's leaders in early March that warned Congress did not intend to honor any potential deal. Forty-seven of Cotton's fellow Republican senators signed the open letter.

The Arkansas Republican particularly took issue with the fact that the deal allows "where necessary, when necessary" inspections of Iran's nuclear sites rather than "anytime, anywhere" access to those sites.

"Morning Joe" host Mika Brzezinski challenged Cotton on that point.

"It seems you're very quick to criticize the deal and it seems like you're reading a different deal, with all due respect," she said.

"It's easy to criticize the deal using the President's own words," Cotton said. "When we started down this path, he said the goal was to dismantle Iran's nuclear program. This leaves them intact."
