Democrats And Republicans Unite To Rescind Last-Minute Obama Order Seeking Federal Election Takeover

All 50 state secretaries of state are urging the Trump administration to rescind a last-minute Department of Homeland Security directive calling state election systems “critical infrastructure.” Many state officials fear this is the first step toward a federal takeover of state-run elections, The Daily Caller News Foundation has learned.

While deep political discord may be found on other issues, state secretaries — who oversee all election machinery — appear completely united against the former administration’s attempt to insert the federal government into state-run elections.

Then-Secretary of Homeland Security Jeh Johnson surprised and outraged state election officials with his Jan. 6 action, just two weeks before President-elect Donald Trump was to assume the presidency. Johnson tried to portray his move as part of the Obama administration’s effort against Russian government hacking of Democratic Party emails during the presidential campaign. But state officials retort that election machines and the infrastructure are not connected to the Internet and therefore are immune to cybersecurity attacks.partyof-deceit-spin-and-lies

Incoming DHS Secretary John Kelly indicated in written testimony prior to his confirmation he was troubled by Johnson’s directive.

“The notion that DHS can or should exercise some degree of influence over state voting systems is highly controversial and appears to be a political question beyond the scope of DHS’ current legislative cyber mandates,” Kelly wrote.

The National Association of Secretaries of State, which represent secretaries in all 50 states, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico and American Samoa, is planning to take up the DHS action at its next full meeting. It is scheduled to be held in Washington, D.C., in mid-February. Association president Denise Merrill, who also serves as the secretary of state for Connecticut, told TheDCNF in an interview, “I’m certain this will be a hot topic among all of us.”

Merrill confirmed the association and many secretaries of state have been in touch with Trump transition staff seeking revocation.

“I haven’t heard one Secretary of State — Democrat or Republican — that’s for this,” she said. Merrill is a Democrat.

Republican Louisiana Secretary of State Tom Schedler, who served as the association’s immediate past president, urged Trump Jan. 11 to “direct the U.S. Department of Homeland Security to rescind the designation of state election systems as ‘critical infrastructure.’”

A DHS spokesman told TheDCNF he could not comment on a possible revocation by Kelly.

Johnson sent shockwaves through every state capital when he issued his official proclamation, stating, “I have determined that election infrastructure in this country should be designated as a subsector of the existing Government Facilities critical infrastructure sector.” He broadly put all state election facilities under the federal “critical infrastructure” purview. His designation would affect all state-operated polling places, centralized vote tabulations location, election storage facilities and IT systems holding voter registration databases.Oh good

He also angered state officials because the federal designation would exempt future election activities from public access via the Freedom of Information Act or from state open record laws.

“This something that came out of the blue,” noted Georgia Secretary of State Brian Kemp in an interview with TheDCNF. “They had never talked to any Secretaries of State or election officials around the country before the whole critical infrastructure designation came up. We were literally blindsided by this.”

“We thought we had turned the tide in convincing DHS that this was not the thing to do,” Schedler told TheDCNF. “It was very obvious to everyone — and it was nonpartisan, my Democratic colleagues were as against this as my Republican colleagues.”

“Suddenly, it was decided that they were going ahead with it and we didn’t get any notice and read about it in the paper,” Merrill recalled. “I don’t know anyone who doesn’t have some concern about it. It’s not a particularly partisan issue at this point.”

The association called the designation, “legally and historically unprecedented and raised questions for states and local governments about administration of the voting process.” Critics contend the action was part of a long-standing goal by progressive activists to “nationalize” future elections with a federal takeover.that-is

“There’s no denying what this looks like: a blatant move to politicize the election process,” wrote Heritage Foundation founder Edwin Feulner in a Jan. 16 opinion article.

Feulner, a staunch conservative, called Johnson’s action a “federal takeover” of state-run elections. “It’s a takeover ostensibly designed to address a nonexistent security threat — and in the process, ironically, make our elections less secure.”

Kemp agreed, saying, “I think that the Obama administration was interested in a universal or nationwide registration data base versus the states doing that. It was part of nationalizing elections which I think is a terrible idea.”

While the Obama administration tied its action to Russian hacking, election machinery is not connected to the Internet.

“All our equipment you actually vote on — the scanners or touch screens or whatever a state uses — are not connected to anything,” Merrill told TheDCNF. “They are not connected to the Internet. They’re not connected even to internal systems.”

“I don’t think they (DHS) understood the election process,” she added. “It’s not very cyber and I’m not sure they exactly understood that.”

Merrill also added that the hacking of the emails from the Democratic National Committee and of Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton campaign manager John Podesta were not part of the government’s election systems.

“It was not a hacking of the election. It was a hacking of emails at the DNC which is NOT a government agency,” she added.

Support for the designation can be found among liberals and members of the Congressional Black Caucus. Jan. 16, Rep. Hank Johnson, a Georgia Democrat who also is a member of the Congressional Black Caucus, introduced legislation to support the designation.

“In the wake of the DNC server hack and well-documented efforts by states to suppress the vote, citizens are rightly concerned,” Johnson stated when he introduced the bill.

State Department-Funded Nonprofit That John Kerry Had ‘No Role’ In Was Founded In His Home


waving flagAuthored by Ethan Barton / 10/02/2016

A nonprofit created in Secretary of State John Kerry’s upscale Boston home and managed by his daughter Vanessa Kerry has received more than $9 million from the Department of State, a Daily Caller News Foundation investigation has found.Partyof Deceit Spin and Lies

Seed Global Health was founded at 19 Louisburg Sq in Boston’s Beacon Hill, tax forms indicate. News reports show that’s Kerry’s home address, which Zillow estimates is worth nearly $18 million. Kerry’s wife, Teresa, is an heir to the Heinz family fortune.

Beacon Hill is the most expensive block in Boston, with median home values estimated at $6.7 million in 2015, a Boston Globe affiliate reported. The Boston Business Journal ranked Kerry’s house the third most valuable home in the city in 2013.

The Department of State has funneled more than $9 million through the Peace Corps to Seed since 2012, TheDCNF previously revealed. The money is awarded under the Global Health Service Partnership (GHSP) – a Peace Corps-run and State Department-funded program that Vanessa Kerry created in conjunction with officials from both agencies.Partyof Deceit Spin and Lies

Seed has never been required to compete with other organizations for the funding. It recruits medical volunteers for overseas service.

“As we have made clear, Secretary Kerry played no role in this decision making while in the Senate or subsequently while at the State Department,” Department of State spokesman John Kirby told TheDCNF. “There was – and remains – no conflict of interest here.”Leftist Propagandist

Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton headed the Department of State when Seed formed and received its initial public funding in 2012. John Kerry chaired the Senate Committee on Foreign Relations as a democratic senator representing Massachusetts. That panel has oversight of both the Department of State and the Peace Corps.

Seed eventually moved into a Massachusetts General Hospital office – Dr. Kerry’s primary employer – tax forms show. Her father replaced Clinton as secretary of state in February 2013.

The Department of State funded an extension for Seed’s contract in 2015, even though the nonprofit couldn’t meet the original agreement’s terms. John Kerry announced GHSP’s State Department-funded expansion at a December 2014 event, and even bragged about the partnership between the Peace Corps and his daughter’s nonprofit. Neither the Peace Corps nor Seed responded to requests from TheDCNF for comment.Partyof Deceit Spin and Lies

The FBI is Closing in on Hillary Clinton as News Breaks that Her Server “Put Lives at Risk”!


waving flagBy / 2 February 2016

Over the last few days the Clinton email scandal has grown uglier and more dangerous, not just for the Obama administration, but for the United States as well. Last week, we learned that Clinton had left deeply secret information unprotected, perhaps even endangering the lives of American operatives. Now, we’ve discovered that at least 22 of Clinton’s emails were so secret that the State Department still can’t release them (even the redacted versions are still too classified for general consumption)! However, the scandal may soon be spreading even further as the latest revelations implicate Secretary of State John Kerry in similar lawlessness and prove that President Obama has been lying to us for years!

That’s interesting because the latest data dump proves that the President and Secretary Clinton had emailed each other on at least 18 separate occasions. The White House does not deny that the correspondence took place, but they are also arguing that Obama had no idea that the server being used was of private origin (despite the obviously non-governmental email address). The White House is also implying (though not guaranteeing) that these 18 instances are the only times that the two had any email contact. “Of the 55,000 pages of traffic that was handed over by former Secretary Clinton to us for us to go through for release through FOIA, we have found these 18, and I do not expect that there will be more,” State Department spokesman John Kirby said late last week.REALLY

ObamaLiar2At the same time that we were learning that the President may have lied about when he learned that Clinton had been using a private server, we were also made aware of the latest blow to Hillary Clinton’s credibility. While the Clinton campaign still claims (contrary to the copious evidence that continues to build) that she never sent or received any classified material on her private server, the State Department now says that at least 22 emails from that server CANNOT be released to the public. Why? Because these 22 emails “contained highly classified information” that even when redacted were too sensitive to reveal to the world.

Mr. McCullough wrote that “several dozen emails” contained classified information, including some now determined to contain information at the “top secret/S.A.P.” level. That designation refers to “special access programs,” which are among the government’s most closely guarded secrets.lying so long

The Clinton campaign (and the State Department) argue that these emails did not contain classified “markings” when they travelled across the Clinton servers, but as MANY experts have already argued, the markings make NO DIFFERENCE.

However, it’s isn’t just Clinton and Obama who have been revealed as untrustworthy in the latest round of email disclosures. John Kerry has also been unmasked as a fellow lawbreaker.REALLY

Emails released by the State Department on Friday show that in 2011, then-Massachusetts Sen. John Kerry sent then-Sec. of State Hillary Clinton an email from his iPad that has been deemed to contain information classified as “Secret.”

You can see the email exchange here thanks to a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request that is revealing the criminal activities of our political leaders. According to the latest count from those keeping tabs, thus far 1583 of the emails that traversed the unsecure Clinton email server were classified in some measure, including the 22 that the State Department revealed on Friday to be of the highest level (“Top Secret”) of classification. That’s a lot of classified information.

As if all of these latest revelations were not damning enough, on Monday Fox News began reporting that sources within the intelligence community were also confirming that Clinton’s illegal server had “put lives at risk.”

From Jeff Dunetz at Lidblog:

Fox News’ Catherine Herridge who has been at the forefront of exposing the severity of the security risks from Hillary Clinton’s use of a private non-secure server while secretary of state, has done it again.
 
Herridge is now reporting that those emails deemed too damaging to release even on a redacted basis, which she revealed on Friday, “contain ‘operational intelligence’ – and their presence on the unsecure, personal email system jeopardized “sources, methods and lives,” a U.S. government official who has reviewed the documents told Fox News.” The official could not discuss the specific contents of the emails but confirmed the description given to Herridge referred to the 22 top secret emails that the State Department announced Friday could not be released in any form, even with entire sections cut out.

The U.S. government official’s description provides confirmation that the emails contained closely held government secrets. “Operational intelligence” can be real-time information about intelligence collection, sources and the movement of assets. 

The official emphasized that the “TOP SECRET” documents were sent over an extended period of time — from shortly after the server’s 2009 installation until early 2013 when Clinton stepped down as secretary of state.

Other news outlets have now confirmed Fox News’ reporting but they’ve also added their own devastating twists to the findings. As John Schindler at the Observer writes (emphasis mine):

I can confirm that the FoxNews report, which lacks any specifics about exactly what was compromised, is accurate. And what was actually in those Top Secret emails found on Hillary’s “unclassified” personal bathroom server was colossally damaging to our national security and has put lives at risk.

Discussions with Intelligence Community officials have revealed that Ms. Clinton’s “unclassified” emails included Holy Grail items of American espionage such as the true names of Central Intelligence Agency intelligence officers serving overseas under cover. Worse, some of those exposed are serving under non-official cover. NOCs (see this for an explanation of their important role in espionage) are the pointy end of the CIA spear and they are always at risk of exposure – which is what Ms. Clinton’s emails have done. 

Not only have these spies had their lives put in serious risk by this, it’s a clear violation of Federal law.

This is HUGE. The entire scandal has been a monstrous example of the disgusting corruption within the Obama administration, but this latest story is the most disturbing revelation yet. People have gone to prison for FAR LESS, and it’s time that Hillary Clinton and her aides joined them there.

The rumors are that the FBI desperately wants to prosecute Hillary Clinton and her closest aide, Huma Abedin. The question is, will it happen? Given the Obama administration’s bent towards lawlessness, I have my doubts.

“Iran Holds Two U.S. Navy Boats After Mechanical Problems, Officials Say,” by Helene Cooper,New York Times, January 12, 2016:

WASHINGTON — The crews of two small United States Navy patrol boats were picked up by the Iranian authorities in the Persian Gulf on Tuesday after commanders lost contact with the vessels, and Pentagon officials said that Iran had agreed to return the sailors soon.

An official said that the boats appeared to have drifted into Iranian territorial waters after one of them experienced mechanical problems. The boats were moving between Kuwait and Bahrain when contact was lost late in the afternoon, a Defense Department official said.

The Pentagon said they had been on a routine training mission, but those waters are a frequent location for intelligence collection by the United States, Iran and many Gulf countries. A senior military official said he expected the sailors to remain held overnight and be released on Wednesday.

The detention of the 10 sailors comes at a particularly delicate moment in the tense American-Iranian relationship, just days before the formal implementation of a nuclear deal in which the United States is supposed to unfreeze about $100 billion in Iranian assets in return for the disablement of critical nuclear facilities….

Secretary of State John Kerry, an official said, was notified of the seizure of the sailors while meeting with top Philippine officials and Defense Secretary Ashton B. Carter. Mr. Kerry broke off the meeting and called his Iranian counterpart, Mohammad Javad Zarif, with whom he spent months negotiating the nuclear accord.

Many American and Middle Eastern officials believe that recent actions by the Iranian Navy against American forces in the Gulf may be intended to embarrass Mr. Zarif and President Hassan Rouhani. The Iranian Revolutionary Guards Corps was responsible for the military side of the nuclear program, and many of its senior officers have objected to the nuclear agreement.

The semiofficial Fars news agency in Iran said that the boats had illegally traveled more than a mile into Iranian territorial waters near Farsi Island, in the Persian Gulf, which is the home of a major Iranian naval base. It said that forces of the Islamic Revolutionary Guards Navy had confiscated GPS equipment, which would “prove that the American ships where ‘snooping’ around in Iranian waters.”Bull

But an American official said that military and diplomatic contacts with the Iranians had been professional, which he credited to the stepped-up engagement over the nuclear accord….

Hollywood comedy legend David Zucker shows the “Side Effects” of the Iran Deal


waving flag

It is comedy, but sadly this seems to be reality.
Check it out:

Hollywood comedy legend David Zucker (“Airplane,” “Scary Movie,” “Naked Gun” films among many others) has written and produced this hilarious spoof on the disastrous Iran Nuclear Deal. In his trademark style, Zucker skewers the deal’s primary architects – President Obama, Hillary Clinton and John Kerry warns of the possible “Side Effects” that may result from the absurd agreement.

“While the President, Secretary Kerry and Hillary Clinton are committed to this deal long term, even with clear majorities of Americans and members of Congress opposing it, it’s time to focus on the side effects we’ll experience as a result” said Zucker. “There’s no shortage of serious ads explaining how horrible the deal is, so maybe injecting some satire will engage a broader audience and ensure the leadership allowing this deal to happen is held responsible for the inevitable dangerous side effects.”

The Zucker piece titled “Side Effects” spoofs the popular prescription drug advertisement formats which include a litany of possible drug side effects. Vision for America (“VFA”) is releasing the video as part of a national advocacy effort to highlight misguided efforts of Democrat leaders and their policies. VFA will ensure public awareness of the negative side effects of the deal and drive national policies and leadership in a safer, more secure direction in 2016.

“We are proud to work with David on this important issue while looking for smarter, more engaging ways to build wider public support for conservative policies and leadership” said Eric Beach, Executive Director of VFA. “We share David’s view that humor and satire are rare in today’s hyper-negative political environment, and we look forward to building on this effort, which will ensure a broader audience engages in these important national issue debates in 2016 and beyond.”

David Zucker is an American film director, producer, and screenwriter. A master of parody comedies, Zucker wrote and directed the critically acclaimed “Airplane!” film, created the “The Naked Gun” franchise, and helped create many other fan favorites such as “Ruthless People”, “Scary Movies 3 and 4”, “Top Secret” and “BASEketball”.

As Multiple White House Lies About the Iran Deal Emerge, the Regime Unleashes Bigoted Attacks on Chuck Schumer

BEGIN TRANSCRIPT

RUSH; Big news from the Middle East about the Iran deal.  It turns out that we were negotiating with the Iranians before Kerry was secretary of state. We were negotiating with the Iranians beforethe election of the “moderate”Rouhani.  We were negotiating an Iranian nuke deal with Mahmoud Ahmadinejad when nobody knew what was happening.  The Regime was telling us that they couldn’t do anything ’cause Ahmadinejad was such a radical extremist goofball.We had to wait for a “moderate” to win, which was Rouhani, and after he did, that’s when we got serious.  It turns out none of that’s true. We had been negotiating with the Iranians long before then and signaling our willingness that they can nuke up.  This latest news is from MEMRI, which is a credible Middle East news source.  Details coming up.

BREAK TRANSCRIPT

RUSH: What the Obama administration and the Democrat Party are doing to Chuck Schumer… They are treating Chuck Schumer as though he is a Republican, ’cause he is opposed — come out opposed to — the Iran deal.  The attacks they are mounting on him are bigoted — some might even say racist or ethnic — highlighting in every report “Chuck Schumer, noted Jew,” it says in the New York Times, “Chuck Schumer, noted Jewish senator from New York,” Washington Post.

They’re saying that Schumer voted against the deal because he’s in bed with the big money Jewish lobby.  They usually reserve that for Republican Jewish people.  But Schumer is getting it all from sides, led by the White House.

BREAK TRANSCRIPTObamaIranian-Flag-WORD-ART

RUSH: Let me give you the latest here on the Iran story, because this is stunning.  The American people have been lied to about another three issues regarding this deal, this so-called nuclear deal with Iran.  First, it turns out that negotiations did not start because of Iran electing a “moderate,” “some guy we could do business with,” i.e., Rouhani.  It turns out that the negotiations between the United States and Iran began when Mahmoud Ahmadinejad was still president.

But we were told by the administration that there’s no way we could talk to Iran with Ahmadinejad in there because he’s a nutcase, he’s an extremist, he’s a lunatic. That was one of the excuses the Regime gave for not doing anything on Iran at that time.  And there was pressure to do something, because the news coming out of Iran was they were bragging about how much progress they were making toward the discovery, creation, development of a nuclear power.

And the Regime was saying, “We can’t talk to ’em. There is no reason to get into negotiation with this guy ’cause he’s such a madman.  We have to wait for them to have their next presidential election. Hopefully they’ll elect a moderate,” which they did. There’s no such thing, by the.  This is another thing.  There’s no such thing as a “moderate” Iranian leader, and there’s no such thing as a “conservative” Iranian cleric.  The guy that runs Iran is the supreme leader.

His name is the Ayatollah Khamenei, and he is the heir to the first Ayatollah Khomeini.  They spell their names differently.  One is K-h-o, that would be the original Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini, and this guy spells his name with an A, other than that they’re identical.  Anyway, he is the supreme leader, and whoever the “president” is a figurehead. Whoever the president is has to clear everything with the supreme leader.

The supreme leader is the genuine radical that runs this country and is state sponsor of terrorism all over the Middle East and parts of the world.  The guy leading the chants “Death to America!” is the supreme leader, and he’s standing there with his Kalashnikov while doing it. He’s written a book on how to trick and how to fool the US and how they’re gonna wipe out Israel, after the deal has been effected between us, the other five nations, and Iran.

So who their “president” is matters not in terms of what the policy of the country is going to be.  It is a genuine theological, religious dictatorship, and it’s run by the mullahs.  The Ayatollah Khamenei has his buddy ayatollahs, and they make up the supreme leadership council.  But the president is merely an office for the rest of the world to observe and think that Iran’s just like every other country.

“It has an elected president! It has a parliament! It’s a democratic process!” None of that is true.  So the idea that we had to wait for Ahmadinejad to go? Why do you think they got rid of Ahmadinejad?  Why do we even get Rouhani in the first place? Isn’t it amazing that we’re sitting around waiting for a “moderate,” and they deliver one?  How’s that happen?  They got rid of Mahmoud Ahmadinejad because the guy was too open and honest about what the intentions of the extreme leader are.

Every time he opened his mouth, it was “Death to America! Death to Israel!” There was no Holocaust, whatever was it. Every time he opened his mouth.  He made it tough for the supreme leader to put forth the false image that Iran is a moderate, harmless country simply wanting to move into the twenty-first century.  So Obama says, “Well, we can’t negotiate with some nutcase like that!  We gotta wait for a moderate.”

Bammo! They give us Rouhani as a moderate, we start negotiate — the point is we were negotiating with Ahmadinejad, because whenever you’re negotiating with your negotiating with supreme leader.  Negotiating with the Ayatollah Khamenei.  There isn’t a single one of these people over there can make a deal or any agreement within a deal without the approval of the Ayatollah Khamenei, the supreme leader.

Now, the second thing we were lied about, even before the negotiations began, is John Kerry — who was a senator at the time — acting on Obama’s orders, had already recognized Iran’s right to enrich uranium on their own soil.  This was known and reported all the way back in 2007.  I think it is huge, because the United States has been trying for more than a decade to make Iran stop its uranium enrichment program.  That involved the centrifuges and all that.

It turns out even before he was secretary of state, Senator John Kerry, as emissary of the Regime, green-lighted Iran’s right to go ahead and enrich uranium on their own soil.  Now, the entire purpose… To illustrate the focus or the magnitude of this lie, the entire purpose of the economic sanctions that we slapped on Iran was to get them to stop their enrichment.  Not only were the sanctions designed to get them to stop, they were designed to prevent them from being able to.

Because with the sanctions in place, they wouldn’t have the money, the capital, or access to materiel that they needed in order to move forward.  And yet all of it did move forward while we had sanctions placed on them, while Ahmadinejad was the president — who we said we couldn’t negotiate with, who we said we couldn’t negotiate with.  By the way, it’s been reported by that great Middle Eastern news service, MEMRI, M-E-M-R-I. All of this was a charade.  The third thing, the third lie, third issue we were lied to about.

The Iranians are already pumping and selling their oil like crazy.  Now, the Obama administration claims that sanctions are not yet been lifted on Iran as it relates to their oil.  MEMRI is the Middle East Media Research Institute.  The headline of the story: “Iranian Senior Officials Disclose Confidential Details From Nuclear Negotiations.”  So the source for all this is a bunch of braggadocios Iranians who feel that it’s apparently okay now ’cause the deal’s done and Obama’s on his way to making sure the world and everybody else ratifies this thing.

“Iranian officials recently began to reveal details from the nuclear negotiations with the US since their early stages. Their statements indicate that the US initiated secret negotiations with Iran not after President Hassan Rohani, [supposedly] of the pragmatic camp, was elected in 2013, but rather in 2011-2012, in the era of radical president Mahmoud Ahmadinejad.”  Again, folks, there’s no difference in the two.  Don’t doubt me on this.  Because whoever’s “president” is nothing more than a placeholder.

muslim-obamaHe’s a public figurehead that’s designed to create or produce or present an image of Iran as your normal, everyday, run-of-the-mill nation that has a president, has a parliament, that has elections and so forth.  “The disclosures also indicate that, already at that time, Iran received from the US administration a letter recognizing its right to enrich uranium on its own soil,” while we supposedly had sanctions in place.  President Barack Obama has wanted Iran to be able to move forward on their nuclear program.

He made it possible for this to happen even while sanctions were supposedly in place.  “Hossein Sheikh Al-Islam, an advisor to the Majlis speaker, specified that the letter had come from John Kerry, then a senator and head of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee. Iranian vice president and top negotiator Ali Akbar Salehi said that Kerry, while still a senator, had been appointed by President Obama to handle the nuclear contacts with Iran.” Kerry was assuring the Iranians they had the right to enrich uranium on their soil since 2007.

Now, what’s happening here is Chuck Schumer has come out in opposition to the deal, and the administration is unloading on him.  The administration and its buddies in the media are unloading on Chuck Schumer.  They accuse him… Washington Post, New York Times, they accuse him of being “a Jew who is in bed with the Jewish lobby, wealthy interests.” All of the code words it had usually use to attack conservatives they are using here to attack Chuck Schumer.

James Taranto, Best of the Web, Wall Street Journal:  “Bigotry, Pure and Simple — The ugly attacks on Senator Chuck Schumer.”  Now, say what you want, Senator Chuck Schumer is getting a taste of his own tactics.  I mean, he’s not a stranger to these tactics.  He has used them himself.  I just find it fascinating he’s on the receiving end of them now.  And, by the way, other Jewish members of Congress are also getting to one degree or another the same kind of treatment as Chuck-U Schumer is getting from the administration, from the Regime.

Basically the attacks are all, “He’s not a loyal American! He’s a Jew first!  He’s an Israeli Jew and he’s supporting the Jewish lobby.”  It’s despicable.  It really is.  It’s the kind of stuff that when a conservative Republican comes out and supports Israel, that’s the kind of stuff they say about him.  And now they’re accusing Chuck Schumer, but it goes worse than that.  Now they’ve got McCain coming out, actively opposing this deal for his own reasons.  McCain is saying the Senate is not gonna pass this; the Senate is not gonna make this reality.

Obama is saying, “I don’t need you! I already got the UN. It’s gonna happen. I don’t care. You guys are just exercising your own folly here.  I don’t need you guys to vote for this.  It’s already a done deal.”  I gotta tell you, like I said yesterday, I really misjudged this whole Schumer thing.  I thought that Schumer coming out for the deal meant that they had enough Democrat votes to pass this thing and that Schumer could thus vote against it and remain loyal to his base in New York.

Which, in majority (I guess) position opposes the deal.  But it turns out that’s not the case.  It turns out his opposition to it is real and substantive, and it’s extensively documented and written.  But I tell you, folks, this is the kind of in-the-weeds stuff that I know that the low-information crowd couldn’t care less about; they’re not gonna understand it when they hear it.

But it’s huge, to me, the things that we’ve been lied to about and the objective that these lies reveal. All along we have been facilitating Iran’s quest? All along we have been helping them make it possible?  It now puts… You know, people have analyzed the deal and said, “Yeah, Iran’s gonna get a deal in two years, 10 years.” It all makes sense now.

BREAK TRANSCRIPT

RUSH: Stan in Winlock, Washington.  Great to have you on the program Stan.  Hello, sir.

CALLER:  Hello and thank you very much for taking my call.  I’ll get right to my point.  I think Obama’s brilliant.  He put Israel in a no-win situation when he got the UN to approve the Iran nuke deal.  If Israel unilaterally destroys Iran’s nuke capability, it will be condemned by the UN and they become the outlaw nation, not Iran.  If Israel does nothing, Iran gets the bomb and Israel is toast.  And all this was done while framing himself as seeking peace.

RUSH:  Let my let me ask you a question, and I’m not per se disagreeing with that other than your claim that Obama’s brilliant.  He may be a brilliant deceitful political tactician. Do you think Israel cares? On one hand, Israel destroyed and vaporized.  On the other hand, the UN thinks Israel is mean.  Which do you think they would choose?

CALLER:  Oh, I think they have no choice.  I think they will react militarily.

RUSH:  Well, do you know that Obama has told them that we will stop them if this try to do that?  Do you know that in this deal in the United States and the other negotiating partners promise to protect Iran against such an Israeli attack?

CALLER:  Yeah, and supposedly Obama’s saying there won’t be any war but Israel’s already said that they will have no choice.

RUSH:  No, no.

CALLER:  They have to defend themselves.

RUSH:  Obama said there would be a war if we don’t approve the deal.  Oh, really?  Well, who’s gonna start that war?  There won’t be a war if there…? There will be a war if there isn’t a deal?  How does that work?  If that’s the case, who starts that war?  It must be the Ayatollah Khamenei ticked off you can’t get his nuclear power.  Who would start that? If there is no deal, it guarantees a war?  This is what Obama said.  It’s a classic Obama tactic.  “You either take my way or it’s Armageddon!”Alinsky affect

On either health care or economy, the stimulus. Now the Iran deal. Whatever it is, “It’s either my way or it’s the end of the world! It’s either my way or hell! It’s either my way or the worst that can possibly happen.”  He always creates a straw dog.  And, by the way, there are always people, in Obama’s worldview, who want the worst that can happen.  In this case, it would be Benjamin Netanyahu.  His straw dog or straw man always has people who represent the evil that he says would naturally occur if his way doesn’t happen.  Stan, I appreciate the call.
