Iran gets caught attempting to buy nuclear technology illegally 32 times

Published

on

It would seem that Germany has caught Iran being a very bad totalitarian regime. They have tried to buy nuclear technology illegally no less than 32 times. And that’s just the attempts we know of. I guarantee you that is just the tip of the nuclear iceberg. This is technology that could be used for military nuclear and ballistic missile programs. I’m pretty sure that’s a violation of the 2015 agreement that Obama and Kerry so foolishly thought would stop Tehran’s insane drive to become a nuclear power. Three German intelligence reports are saying this and they were obtained by Fox News.

This new intel from September and October of last year shows the rogue regime made “32 procurement attempts … that definitely or with high likelihood were undertaken for the benefit of proliferation programs.” President Trump is set to announce Thursday whether the US will recertify the Iran deal or not… and we probably won’t. But that won’t slow Iran down. The 32 attempts took place in the German state of North Rhine-Westphalia. Imagine how many other countries Iran is attempting to make deals in. The disclosed intel lists Iran as a nation that engages in proliferation, which is defined as “spreading atomic, biological or chemical weapons of mass destruction.” That’s a kind way of describing the biggest purveyor of terrorism on the planet and we funded them thanks to Obama and Kerry. Missile delivery systems were also included in the definition of illicit proliferation activity in the report.

It would seem that Iran is using front companies in the UAE, Turkey and China to get around pesky international restrictions on its nuclear and missile programs. And you can bet they also have help from Russia and North Korea. The Iran deal was put into effect on Jan. 16th, 2016. This intel covers all of 2016, but not what has happened this year. I’m sure the activity has become much more frenzied regardless of what we hear in the media. One thing is fairly certain, they aren’t in compliance with the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action, or JCPOA.

Most of the attempts by Iran in 2016 to get a hold of this technology, were to boost their missile programs. In 2015, there were 141 attempts by Iran that we know of to secure illicit goods for proliferation purposes. In a second report, the German state of Hessen said Iran, Pakistan, North Korea and Sudan use “guest academics” for illegal activities related to nuclear and other weapons programs. “An example for this type of activity occurred in the sector of electronic technology in connection with the implementation of the enrichment of uranium,” the document reads. I’m just wondering why we have waited so long to stand up to these monsters. It may in fact be too late to head off their nuclear dreams. Plus, they have the backing of Russia and China if it comes to war. They are also utilizing “research exchanges at universities in the sector of biological and chemical procedures” for foreign intelligence services. In other words… spies and espionage.

Marco Rubio is not the only one concerned that Iran is helping Syria develop its chemical warfare program. A number of security experts have been ringing that alarm bell for some time. Russia is also in the thick of it. “Congress and the White House should work together to hold the Assad regime accountable for its war crimes and impose harsh sanctions against its enablers,” Rubio told Fox News. So far, that hasn’t happened. Iran is working freely on its missile program. “With ballistic missiles and long-range rockets, Iran will be in the position to not only be able to threaten Europe,” a third intelligence report stated.

UN Security Council resolution 2231 states that “activities with Iran for nuclear and non-nuclear civilian end uses” should be sent to a technical UN working group on procurement. Like that will make any difference at all. It’s laughable. Germany was asked if they reported the illicit exports and the unlawful attempts and they said, “We have no indication of Iran violating its JCPOA commitments. Quite on the contrary, the recent 2016 Report of the Federal Office for the Protection of the Constitution states that there is no evidence of Iran violating the JCPOA. Having said that, we remain worried by Iran’s missile program. The aforementioned report, as well as reports from regional intelligence authorities, shows that Germany is highly vigilant in this regard and will continue to do so. However, this issue is outside the scope of the JCPOA and needs to be dealt with separately.” What bull crap.

Sigmar Gabriel, the outgoing Social Democrat foreign minister of Germany, has made several trips to Iran since 2015 to boost trade with Tehran. Gabriel is widely considered one of Europe’s most energetic advocates of the Iran deal. So, you see… Germany, just like Obama, Clinton and Kerry, benefits from all of this if they let Iran gain access to nuclear technology. Even if it brings on Armageddon.

Here’s hoping there’s a plan we don’t know about with North Korea

Published

Heres hoping theres a plan we dont know about with North Korea

In a move that many, including supporters on the right, are calling a move of weakness, the President reversed the Treasury Department’s additional sanctions on North Korea.

My Take

I’m just not sure what to make of this. I understand many have been concerned about how nicely the President has treated Kim Jong un, but I’ve always felt there was some sort of plan happening behind the scenes that would justify it. Now, I’m not so sure.

This move emboldens Kim to continue avoiding any compromise on his nuclear weapons program. It tells him and the rest of the world President Trump isn’t going to be playing hardball and intends to coax the North Korean dictator into signing some sort of agreement before the 2020 elections.

Dare I say, this seems very Obamaesque? Where’s the hardball? Where’s the threats against Rocketman? If there’s some sort of 4D chess being played in the background, I seriously hope we see it in play soon. This is a strange move.

Mike Pompeo responds to Venezuela, Biden’s world tour, Hezbollah, and Israel

Mike Pompeo responds to Venezuela Bidens world tour Hezbollah and Israel

Secretary of State Mike Pompeo appeared on Fox News last night to talk to Shannon Bream about the tumultuous state of affairs around the world and how the United States is handling them.

First, he discussed Venezuela and recent developments where Nicolas Maduro’s regime has essentially framed members of Juan Guaido’s team in an effort to jail and stop the opposition to his presidency there. The Secretary of State said they would hold Maduro’s regime accountable for their actions, but would not elaborate on how U.S. intervention in the poverty-torn nation would manifest.

He jabbed at potential Democratic 2020 candidate and former Vice President Joe Biden, who is being allegedly courted by world leaders to run for the White House in hopes he could bring back proper relations. As Pompeo noted, our relations with world leaders is in a current state of positive action despite the President’s harsh stance with many of them.

As for Hezbollah, Pompeo said the U.S. would press Lebanon for the sake of its people to facilitate change from the anti-Israel, anti-American Hezbollah rule that has basically made the nation a pawn for Iran.

As for the Israel front. where Pompeo was speaking from, he said calls by people like Beto O’Rourke and others to undermine the conservative base shared by the United States and Israel would not help the situation. Only through the President’s peace plan can the Middle East move forward, according to Pompeo.

My Take

Until the Venezuelan government asks directly for help, there should be no action by the United States other than aid for the people. This is an internal affair. Just because the leadership is challenged doesn’t make it our problem. If there was ever a time when the United Nations should flex its puny muscles, that time is now and the place is Venezuela.

Any foreign leaders calling on Biden to replace Trump are doing so because they do not want the United States to continue to maintain and improve upon its position of strength on the world stage. They prefer the good ol’ days under President Obama when the United States was a pawn for many other nations.

Hezbollah must go. That’s not to say we need to be involved with that, but Lebanon will never be free and prosperous as long as they’re the proxy for Iran.

Lastly, the Secretary of State seemed to be echoing a notion that the President would push for a 2-state solution. If that’s the case, it’s a huge mistake. Otherwise, Pompeo is correct in asserting the backwards notions of the Democrats lashing out against President Trump and Prime Minister Netanyahu.

We’re in a time when foreign affairs are starting to take center stage. Yes, we have problems of our own, but to ignore the growing threats abroad would be a mistake. It’s good the administration is handling these issues.

Kudos to the President for calling on the U.S. to recognize Israel’s sovereignty over the Golan Heights

Kudos to the President for calling on the US to recognize Israels sovereignty over the Golan Heights

It’s always hard to tell where the administration may be going following policy Tweets from the President. He’s been known to say one thing, then the administration slowly shifts reality away from the initial intent of the Tweet. On the other hand, many of his Tweets have turned into policy. It’s just a matter of waiting and seeing what the official word from the White House is.

In this case, it’s the President’s bold declaration that the Golan Heights, considered by enemies of Israel to be disputed territory, is actually sovereign Israeli land. As he noted in the Tweet, this is long overdue.

Considering the stances the President has been taking on Twitter this week with sustained attacks on George Conway and John McCain, this is a breath of fresh air. If Israel ever gave up he Golan Heights, they would be losing one of the most important strategic areas through which enemy militaries could easily become entrenched and launch attacks that would be difficult for Israel to counter. While the IDF enjoys technological advances over their enemies, terrain and proximity are still major factors in the defense of their lands. The Golan Heights represents a piece of land that must never be given easy access to their enemies.

There’s one important caveat to the kudos I’m giving the President. If it turns out acknowledgement of the Golan Heights as sovereign territory is used as a precursor to asking Israel to give up the West Bank in a Middle East peace agreement, then it’s a whole other situation entirely. Just as giving up the Golan Heights would make Israel a very easy target, so too would the idea of a two state solution that grants “Palestine” control over the West Bank.

If the motives are pure, this is a great move. If this is an early olive branch, it’s dangerous.

Israel’s control of the Golan Heights is absolutely essential to its security. The lands just south would be completely indefensible if the United Nations ever got its way and the Golan Heights fell under control of Israel’s enemies.
