America’s Sovereignty Thrown Under The Bus – The Corrupt Iran Deal – George Soros Funded.
by Ruby Henley
I promised an update on my previous report, which can be viewed here – www.investmentwatchblog.com/no-wonder-john-kerry-and-the-eu-leaders-are-in-a-state-of-panic-bribes-taken-on-the-iran-deal/
Information can be found by going back in time, so I am going to start with a report from 2015.
I am using sources that I believe to be legitimate, as this is very serious. I always try to use sources I trust, but in today’s environment – it is difficult to trust what you read- from anyone.
First of all I want to establish the fact that the breaking story comes out of Iran. Someone said that I should not be targeting Iran – what? I am not targeting Iran – I am only reporting the breaking news coming from Iran. It is important, and the American people deserve to know the truth. If anyone doubts the validity of my claim, please reread my original report.
The point here is when you really think about it, Iran is threatening those entities who created the Iran Deal to help IRAN. ACTUALLY IRAN IS BLACKMAILING THOSE VERY PEOPLE!
Now they are scurrying about to and fro in an attempt to keep the Deal together. Right now, they are meeting with one another to cover the tracks which led up the unsigned Deal.
It is a long story, so I ask that you take the time to read the following –
Going back in time to an expertly done report at – www.usatransnationalreport.org/iran-lobby/
The report was researched and compiled by the above, who are affiliated with the following sources –
This is a very long report, and I would advise any of you, who really want the full background on this complex Iran Nuclear Deal to read the entire report.
Background of the Iran/United States Nuclear Deal –
The Iranian lobby that convinced Washington to thaw relations with Iran evolved out of the work of Baquer Namazi and Hassan Nemazee, as well as the guiding hand and money of George Soros.
The National Iranian-American Council (NIAC) is the primary conduit for Tehran’s lobby efforts in Washington, D.C. NIAC managed to pressure the U.S. government to subordinate international security and stability to narrow corporate interests, access Iranian markets, and the revenues that it can potentially provide.
The founder of The National Iranian-American Council (NIAC) is Siamak Namazi, son of Baquer Namazi. This family is close to Iranian regime; in particular, they are a core part of the (former president) Rafsanjani faction within Iran..
Following first President Clinton’s sanctions on Iran, and then the nuclear issue, American business was blocked from entering the Iranian market. Siamak needed a way to circumvent Clinton’s sanctions. He found an academic partner in Trita Parsi, who also brought his critical experience as a Washington-based political consultant.
Trita Parsi, an Iranian Swede, then employed as a political consultant to Congressman Robert Ney (R-OH). (Note: In 2006, Ney pled guilty to corruption charges related to the lobbyist Jack Abramoff, and served 17 months in prison.)
Beginning in 1997, Parsi systematically convinced Ney to lobby for the normalization of Iranian diplomatic and economic relations. He did this through his original organization, Iranians for International Cooperation (IIC).
NIAC is at the center of the Iran lobby’s web. It serves as a magnet for Iranian Americans who are sympathetic to Tehran, and in many cases have a financial interest in normalizing relations.
Key Connections –
Prior to the 2008 election, the Obama team dispatched former ambassador William G. Miller to Iran, informing the Mullahs that they would get a better deal once Obama was in office.
Obama ignored the revolutionary Green Movement in 2009, and let the Iranian government kill and imprison the reform-minded protestors.
Hillary Clinton, Secretary of State at the time of the Green Movement’s uprising, was advised by Trita Parsi not to support the protesters.
John Kerry’s son-in-law’s best man at his daughter’s wedding is the son of Iranian Foreign Minister Javad Zarif, the Iranian’s main negotiator in nuclear talks.
The George Soros Connection –
Billionaire investor and political manipulator George Soros played a significant role in shaping and funding the Iranian lobby. As in the Arab Spring, Soros deliberately sided with the most extreme elements in Iran, who, like the Muslim Brotherhood, also happen to be the most anti-Semitic.
Soros, whose wealth from investing and hedge fund management exceeds $20 billion, has used his political influence to affect political “change” in multiple countries. For example, in Ukraine, he has funded NGOs going back to the Cold War. In Egypt, he was instrumental in ousting long-time American ally Hosni Mubarak, and beginning the so-called Arab Spring.
Likewise, Soros has funded, and supported otherwise, various organizations that have been influential in opening Iran to the West.
In 2006, the National-Iranian American Council (NIAC), led by Trita Parsi, received $50,000 from Soros’s Open Society Institute.
In 2009, NIAC received $125,000 from the Open Society Institute, and an additional $25,000 from its foundation, the Foundation to Promote Open Society.
NIAC hosted Ambassador Thomas Pickering to lead a panel discussion on “finding the nuclear fix,” a reference to Iran’s standoff with the West. Not only is Pickering a trustee at Soros’ International Crisis Group, but he helped cover up the Benghazi scandal, and has ties to the Council on American-Islamic Relations (a Muslim Brotherhood front organization).
In June 2015, Pickering argued on NPR that the Iranian nuclear deal was good policy.
Here we have a very important link between the National-Iranian American Council (NIAC) and the National Endowment for Democracy (NED) is known to be closely associated with George Soros. It is funded by the NIAC.
The NED is technically a private institution that receives an annual appropriation from the U.S. Congress through the State Department. Many speculate it is also funded privately by Soros.
In 2002, shortly after NIAC was formed by Trita Parsi and Siamak Namazi, the National Endowment for Democracy expedited an application for grant money to NIAC.
NIAC is estimated to have received approximately $200,000 in grants from the NED.
NIAC’s spent the NED grant money on sending two NIAC members to work with Baquer Namazi’s Hamyaran, the Iranian government’s umbrella NGO. Allegedly NIAC was teaching Hamyaran to use “computer based digital media.”
The Ploughshares Fund Connection – Funded By George Soros –
The Ploughshares Fund, besides being a strong proponent of the Iranian nuclear deal, is a Soros-funded operation, with several key connections to American policy makers, and NIAC.
Former Secretary of Defense under Obama, Chuck Hagel (a Republican), was on the Board of the Ploughshares Fund when nominated by Obama. (He joined Ploughshares in 2009.) Ploughshares applauded his nomination to Secretary of Defense.
One of the primary advocates of the Iranian nuclear deal for the Obama administration is Robert Creamer. The Wall Street Journal reviewed a transcript of a conference call hosted by Ploughshares, which quoted Creamer as saying: “The other side will go crazy. We have to be really clear that it’s a good deal.”
According to Aaron Klein at WND, “a primary Ploughshares donor is the Tides Foundation, a money tunnel in which leftist donors provide funds to finance other radical groups. Tides is itself funded by Soros.”
One of Ploughshares other benefactors is Soros’s Open Society Institute.
The Ploughshares Fund has partnered with other Soros-funded and anti-Israel groups including Code Pink, the Institute for Policy Studies, and the U.S. Campaign to End the Israeli Occupation.
The Valerie Jarrett Connection –
In 2012, news broke that Valerie Jarrett had been acting personally as an emissary to Iran. According to the Israeli newspaper Yediot Ahronot, Jarrett held meetings with Iranian officials in Bahrain over a period of several months.
A month prior to the report in Yediot Ahronot, an unnamed source reported that negotiations between Iran and the United States had occurred in Doha, Qatar. (Note: Doha is the home of the Muslim Brotherhood’s spiritual leader, Yusuf al-Qaradawi. It is also where the Taliban opened an embassy in 2013.) It is very likely Jarrett was the American representative at these talks.
Jarrett said, regarding Obama, “We have kind of a mind meld… And chances are, what he wants to do is what I’d want to do.”
Sellout Of Sovereignty To International Business Interests – Bottom Line-
The Iran Nuclear Deal is not technically a treaty and not strictly a U.N. agreement. This suggests American sovereignty was not even a thought among the negotiators. Indeed, it is not even clear that American companies stand to gain much from the deal, in comparison to their European, Russian, and Chinese counterparts.
Instead of a traditional treaty, which requires ratification by the U.S. Senate, this deal is a complex of U.N.-centered agreements, overlapping with bi-lateral agreements.
Due to the Deal’s unusual structure, the Senate was basically powerless to stop it. To defeat it, Congressional Republicans could have used political guerilla tactics, such as defunding Obama’s agenda.
This impotence was reinforced once the U.N. Security Council blessed the deal shortly after it was agreed upon by the negotiating parties.
THE DEAL INCLUDED SECRET SIDE DEALS NOT REPORTED TO THE SENATE.
Included in the Deal’s provisions are guarantees for business that, regardless of Iran’s compliance with the agreement, companies would be allowed to continue to do business with Iran.
The agreement also severely limits Congress’s ability to re-impose sanctions on Iran.
Almost immediately after the deal was complete, Russia announced that it lifted a ban on the sale of a sophisticated missile system used for air-defense.
China announced that they would sell Iran 24 J-10 fighter jets. The value of the deal is estimated at $1 billion.
Europe is eager to embrace the newly legitimated Iran.
Germany, France, Italy, Britain, Austria, Spain, Poland, and Sweden all had plans for Iranian business.
THE TIES RUN DEEP.
Americans Lose –
U.S. sanctions on the Iranian regime remained in force:
After years of painstaking negotiations and at great political cost, the Obama administration has created a means for foreign businesses to re-enter Iran—but U.S. law still sidelines all but the biggest American multinationals.
Even in the case of big U.S. corporations with foreign subsidiaries, any U.S. citizen employed by an overseas unit would likely be prohibited from participating in transactions with Iran unless granted permission by the Treasury Department’s Office of Foreign Asset Controls, experts said.
In effect, the Deal secures Iranian markets for foreign companies, while American firms still face complex legal and regulatory hurdles should they choose to engage the Iranian market.
Valerie Jarrett, John Kerry, and George Soros have used Barack Hussein Obama and the Presidency to the benefit of Iran.
The United States government, in particular the White House and Congress, are deeply corrupt. The representatives of the American people put a higher value on personal profit and reelection than they do on national security and the security of America’s allies.
The sovereignty of the United States has been sold to the international highest bidder. Congress no longer serves as an effective check on treaty-making. The U.S.A.’s foreign policy is now largely directed by the United Nations, which is, in turn, dominated by the 57-state Organization of the Islamic Conference (OIC).
The Obama administration was more interested in the profitability of foreign companies as opposed to domestic companies. Events indicates that Obama viewed foreign business interests as his best allies in securing the Iran nuclear deal.
IAPAC (Iranian-American Political Action Committee) donated the most money to political candidates in 2008. This was certainly to ensure the election of Barack Hussein Obama.
From the beginning, the bi-partisan Iranian lobby was tied to Tehran, the United Nations, and George Soros.
The United States’ reputation is now tied to that of Iran.
The following report goes back to 2015 –
The Iran Deal was not a signed agreement.
John Kerry is in violation of the Logan Act, because he met with Iran in Paris behind the back of President Trump. We can see why he took this clandestine step, as he was the head of the snake in the creation of the Deal.
The Logan Act states – “Any citizen of the United States, wherever he may be, who, without authority of the United States, directly or indirectly commences or carries on any correspondence or intercourse with any foreign government or any officer or agent thereof, with intent to influence the measures or conduct of any foreign government or of any officer or agent thereof, in relation to any disputes or controversies with the United States, or to defeat the measures of the United States, shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than three years, or both.”
If special counsel Bob Mueller is truly interested in investigating people who are colluding with nefarious foreign powers to undermine U.S. interests, John Kerry should be Target No. 1 for secretly meeting with Iran’s foreign minister, Javad Zarif, and other foreign officials in recent weeks to usurp U.S foreign policy.
It’s a role that as a private citizen, Kerry has no mandate or authority to pursue.
The Boston Globe reported Friday that Kerry has been engaging in stealth diplomacy, secretly meeting with high-ranking officials including in Germany, France and the Islamic State to salvage the contentious Iran nuclear deal he orchestrated during the Obama administration.
Why isn’t the DOJ raiding Kerry’s manse, as it did with Trump’s attorney Michael Cohen?
Or putting the former secretary of state under house arrest, as it did with former Trump campaign manager Paul Manafort?
Kerry has now been caught meddling in U.S. foreign policy and conspiring with foreign nations to prop up the collapsing Iran nuclear deal — a textbook violation of the Logan Act. Yet the Department of Justice went after former national security adviser Gen. Michael Flynn with a vengeance for contacts with a Russian diplomat during the 2016 transition despite it not being illegal to do so. Obama’s FBI then set perjury traps against Flynn and have destroyed his life as a result.
But John Kerry is a free man, providing additional evidence — if you needed any — our justice system has become dangerously politicized.
Perhaps the Democratic Party, Attorney General Jeff Sessions and FBI Director Christopher Wray can explain how it’s OK that Kerry has colluded with foreign actors while the Mueller team and Justice Department continue to engage in a scorched-earth campaign against the Trump administration over faux Russian collusion theories that haven’t borne fruit despite a string of costly government investigations.
In conclusion, we must look at the history of the Iran Deal from beginning to end.
I summarize from those facts that the Obama Administration acting with funds and direction from George Soros, the connected Soros groups, John Kerry, and members of the United States government, who did not consider the sovereignty of the United States, and those who went out of their way to please Iran due to their own business interests are the responsible parties – at least those American entities.
However, we know that the European Countries were also involved in getting their place in line.
It all began with the Iranian Lobby penetrating the US government to benefit of Iran.
They met no resistance as they did so; thus, the Iran Deal was a natural collaboration between the Iran Lobby and the Obama Administration.
It was not a problem to get everyone to fall in line. It was not about what was best for America – it was what was best for Iran.
It is only fitting that these entities, who went along – without thinking about the American people- are now being threatened by Iran to expose their names.
It is amazing to me that they do not consider this to be blackmail.
