At the vice presidential debate, Sen. Tim Kaine seriously proved he’s too delusional to be our next vice president. We already have one in that category right now. For Sen. Kaine to tout the Iranian nuclear agreement as some great accomplishment of Hillary Clinton’s is unnerving, to say the least. Hillary Clinton has not ended any quest by the Iranians to pursue a nuclear device; heck, why have the Iranians placed the Russian S-300 surface-to-air missile system at one of their most secretive nuclear facilities? And thanks to Hillary and her “reset button” toy, Russia has indeed made incredible gains as a preeminent geopolitical adversary to the United States — and let’s not talk about the total destabilization of the Middle East on Clinton’s SecState watch.
Now we have even more egregious information about Hillary Clinton, Barack Obama, and Iran. As reported by the Washington Free Beacon: The Obama administration misled journalists and lawmakers for more than nine months about a secret agreement to lift international sanctions on a critical funding node of Iran’s ballistic missile program, as part of a broader “ransom” package earlier this year that involved Iran freeing several U.S. hostages, according to U.S. officials and congressional sources apprised of the situation.
The administration agreed to immediately lift global restrictions on Iran’s Bank Sepah—a bank the Treasury Department described in 2007 as the “linchpin of Iran’s missile procurement”–eight years before they were to be lifted under last summer’s comprehensive nuclear agreement. U.S. officials initially described the move as a “goodwill gesture” to Iran.
The United States also agreed to provide Iran $1.7 billion in cash to release or drop charges against 21 Iranians indicted for illegally assisting Tehran. Full details of this secret agreement were kept hidden from Congress and journalists for more than nine months, multiple sources told the Washington Free Beacon.
State Department officials who spoke to the Free Beacon now say the United States “already made” the decision to drop U.S. sanctions, but declined to address multiple questions aimed at clarifying the discrepancy between past and current explanations for dropping international sanctions.
The Free Beacon first reported on these terms in January, including the dropping of international sanctions on Bank Sepah.State Department officials told the Free Beacon at the time that the settlement with Iran, including the $1.7 billion cash award, was “not related” to “the release of the U.S. citizens from Iran.”
Of course, the delusional progressive socialists who troll these pages will say, “what difference at this point does it make”?Here is the point: Hillary Clinton was Secretary of State when the whole idea of an Iranian deal was conceived; she owns it. It was on her watch that the behind-the-scenes early negotiations were taking place, and she has continually stood by this bit of foreign policy folly. That means Hillary Clinton is in complete agreement with the lifting of sanctions, along with the providing of mass amounts of laundered cash, to the number one state sponsor of Islamic terrorism in the world. So why would anyone with a thinking sense about them want to see that person sitting in the White House? We’ve shared with you the deceitful actions of Ben Rhodes, who admitted to lying to the media in order to advance that which is a mess similar to Bill Clinton’s characterization of Obamacare.Here’s the truth about this Iranian nonsense. First, Iran has violated the “agreement,” because they were not supposed to engage in any sale or purchase of conventional weapons for five years. We already know the Iranians have been purchasing weapon systems from Russia and has had negotiations with China. We’ve shared with y’all how the Iranians have sought new tanks, aircraft and other military arms. As well, we know Iran is ardently supplying the Houthi Islamists in Yemen who overthrew that government. Iran has deployed its terrorist organization, the Quds Force, into Syria along with Iranian Revolutionary Guards forces in Iraq, supporting Shiite militias.
Second, Iran was not supposed to conduct any ballistic missile testing for eight years — you have to be living under a rock in order to not know that’s exactly what they’ve been doing — actually have increased doing.
Lastly, Obama and Clinton’s foolish appeasement does not end Iranian pursuit of nuclear capability — a game changer in the Middle East. It only pushes the “breakout” time to fifteen years…but they still achieve it. I’ld offer that Iran, with the assistance of North Korea, will achieve this right when they want. So Kaine’s assertion that Hillary Clinton has stopped Iran’s quest for a nuclear weapon is absolutely false.
We also know the Iranians have been harassing our Naval vessels in the international waters of the Persian Gulf, with no consequence — well, they got $1.3B in cash from Obama. President Reagan knew how to respond to Iranian belligerence in the Persian Gulf in 1988, Operation Preying Mantis.
Sen. Tim Kaine failed miserably in the VP debate on the most important issue…he could not offer any comfort for the American people that Hillary Clinton has a positive record in defending Americans. Her folly with Russia and Iran will have long-serving negative ramifications for America and our national security. Heck, you could even beg the question, could such aid and comfort being provided to an enemy like Iran constitute treasonous behavior? Well, if it is not, then present me a better example of what treason is?
In closing, wonder how Hillary and Timmy feel about the Iranian nuclear scientist Shahram Amiri, who was providing intelligence on the Iranian nuclear program. Hillary Clinton shared emails with staffers about him and his activities… and the Iranians executed him on August 7, 2016. That’s what conducting official classified US government business on an unsecured private email server does; it puts folks’ lives in danger.
Hey Timmy, we don’t need an intelligence surge, we just don’t need another lying, corrupt, and deceitful president. Got one already, along with a delusional vice president. We don’t need a repeat!
