Iran Nuclear Deal – All About The Money

Everyone seems brainwashed that the Iran nuclear deal was all about peace and love and everyone just getting along like Flower Children wearing daisies.  Conservatives, Libertarians, and Democrats are gushing that Trump is disrupting a Peace Agreement when in fact it was never about Peace – it was always about Money – Trade – follow the $$$$$$!  

Short term memory loss:  In 2016 the UK government released an Iranian trade and export guide:  “There is a positive outlook for UK-Iran trade relations. Iran is the biggest new market to enter the global economy in over a decade, offering significant opportunities in most sectors, with potential to grow as the market in Iran expands.

Iran’s significant oil and gas reserves will be an important driver of economic growth. Other sectors in this diversified economy with the potential to contribute to the country’s Gross Domestic Product (GDP) growth and employment and where UK business has particular strengths include: Retail, Healthcare, Infrastructure, mining and water.”

Money. 

Of course the EU has to support the Obama Nuclear Deal, their business interests have ratcheted up billions to exploit the country and if they supported Trump to pull out of the deal, their lobbyists, their political funding, would tank!

The Guardian wrote:   “Companies from Asia and Europe are already flocking to do business in theemerging economy, which is set to come in from the cold should Tehran meet its obligations to not pursue a nuclear weapon.”

Dubai scheduled ten flights per day to Tehran and said each one was packed.   But it was Germany leading the pack with their tongue wagging and their wallets stuffed with IOU’s anticipating a boom of $3 billion Euro immediately, and a release of their oil import concerns amidst visions of lollipops and gummy bears…

Meanwhile the voices revert still to the Peace Treaty and claim that Iran underwent multiple inspections all of which determined it was squeaky clean.   But the inspection process was quite sketchy;  Iran had to be given advance notice of an inspection by outsiders, certain facilities were exempt from inspection, military facilities were off-limits including the Parchin facility which was ‘self inspected’.

Currently the IAEA website is blocking access to Iran Inspections with an “error Page 504…  Odd.  I suppose they need to create reports that weren’t previously created?

In 2016, Yukiya Amano, Director General of the International Atomic Energy Agency, said “The hard work of verifying the controversial pact will likely continue for years, strongly hinting that he intends to seek a third term as head of the watchdog agency to see the task through.”

“It is still fragile,” Amano said of the accord during an interview at the IAEA’s Austrian headquarters. “Reaching an agreement was very important, but making it sustainable requires a lot of effort.” 

Has the IAEA released an Inspection Report since 2016?

Trump attempted to renegotiate parts of the Agreement to shore up the obvious loopholes and was blatantly told – No.  Why if they have nothing to hide?  Why if they are truly in compliance?

The IAEA is mired in controversy and muddling, short staffed, and inexperienced staff make up a portion of their inspection team.  In September 2017, Director General, Yukima Amana, stated that“The IAEA has conducted many complementary accesses (CAs) in Iran since Implementation Day of the JCPOA, and will continue to request access to sites and locations before drawing a broader conclusion for the country.”

In other words, two years after the implementation of the Nuclear Deal as created by Obama and Kerry, only a handful of sites were actually inspected by the IAEA because Iran refused access.

Now the media would have us believe that what is most important is for the US to ignore these facts and simply join the EU bandwagon of exploiting the trade dollars while Iran continues to do whatever it chooses…

Meanwhile, Kerry is desperate.  I wonder how much $$$$$$ are at stake from his own portfolio?

Obama and Kerry: Negotiating with Global Leaders

While the press is fixated on personal jabs at Trump, McCain at personal jabs at Trump, there is a rumbling beneath the surface that is growing exponentially.   Despite the fact that Obama is no longer president, he continues to act as though he is meeting with foreign dignitaries across the globe from the presidents of China to India to France, to Germany, to Singapore, Australia, New Zealand, Japan to the infamous Farrakhan leader of the Nation of Islam.  

John Kerry is also making world tours under the guise of his former status as Secretary of State, most importantly meeting with heads of state in Iran.   Kerry is also running around the globe speaking at the UN as the US representative while fomenting division as he speaks with France’s Macron, with the European Union foreign policy chief, and with Germany’s president, Steinmeier.  Coincidentally, today Steinmeier (who rarely comes out of the proverbial closet to offer an opinion on anything) made front page news as he slams Trump for alienating what was formerly known as the ‘global community” and for not backing the Iran deal…

Simultaneously, Michelle Obama is making tours representing herself as the ‘forever First Lady”, and Hillary is raising money across the globe purportedly in the guise of book tours.

Theories circulate as to the radical flurry of these comrades-in-armswho seemingly are securing their place, their name, their power – as a potential transfer of power underlying the rumbling in the US White House.   Impeachment or coup, they are desperate to secure their grab of righteous authority.

But these trolls of the White House are losing ground as Trump continues to drain The Swamp and reveal the corruption that has plagued our government for decades.   A bitter war is being fought as we stand idly on the sidelines.   Most of The People are completely unaware of the magnitude of this purging.   Most are not privy to the layers upon layers that have slowly been built only to find that as one layer is uncovered and displaced, ten more are revealed.

It is interesting that despite these revelations, many within even the conservative ranks and Libertarian ranks, are still unsatisfied.  As though it isn’t ‘enough’, it isn’t ‘fast enough’, it isn’t enough players…   They speak with the same entitlement and impatience that one would normally expect from within the Liberal Democrat ranks.   Perhaps it is simply a societal anomaly of everything must happen immediately without the business and political insight of rules of order, of cause and effect, and of thorough research and investigation.

While Kerry’s actions of colluding with the ‘enemy’ are categorically illegal under the Logan Act, Obama continues to traverse a skimming line that is carefully announced within the vein of Foundation work – much like the Clinton Foundation skimming that was regurgitated just a year+ ago.   But given there were no real consequences paid by the Clinton’s for their corrupt funding, Obama has nothing to preclude him from playing the same game.

At least not – Yet.  

IRAN Nuclear Deal – A Sham

Was the Iran Nuclear Deal more about finding a means for lifting sanctions than curbing their nuclear production? Was it more of a corporate decision in order to profit on the economy of Iran while unfreezing potentially $100 billion in assets, which could be used to pay for the greed of corporate products? Maybe it was to legalize all the ‘waivers’ that had been extended despite the sanctions!

The US had already apparently granted some 296 waivers, allowing various business to operate, trade, and service in Iran – prior to the Iran Nuclear Deal. All granted during the Obama regime.

Waivers were given to a host of biomedical, agriculture, and medical device companies, but they were also given to institutions like Harvard, New York University, HSBC, BNP Paribas, GE, genetics companies, etc…

BNP was cited for illegally doing business with Iran, Sudan and Cuba despite sanctions in place. They were fined nearly $9 billion by the US, and then issued a waiver – to do business in Iran. BNP is also the largest nuclear investor bank in the world with $13.5 billion on the line.

Since the Iran Nuclear Deal became effective, the share price of BNP Paribas has risen 67%.

So what is the point of sanctions if waivers are the norm?

And who is denied a waiver? How much does it cost to buy a waiver? Where is the waiver money deposited, because I don’t see it as a line item under the Federal Revenue Budget?

Nothing is ever as it seems, and the Iran Deal is no exception.

Playing with the sanctions in Iran has been rather self fulfilling as periodically specific sanctions were lifted. In 2000, sanctions were lifted on ‘caviar and carpets’, obviously to accommodate the appetite of the uber wealthy.

With a failed attempt to colonize Ukraine, was Iran the next largest prospect? Cuba?

Iran is much more westernized than other Middle Eastern countries. The Burqua is not required.   Luxury brands from the EU and US are popular. They have copycat markets for burgers, pizza, and even Starbucks. Victoria Secrets, cigarettes, Dell and Apple products are everywhere.

Legalizing what has already been done under the table is only a part of the agenda.

Israel. Israel and Iran despise each other. Lifting the sanctions releases a pressure valve ramping up Israel’s defensive character. The Iran Deal also sends a message to Israel that – you aren’t important, business is – and isolates Israel from virtually the rest of the world given the P5+1 signed off on the New Deal. P5+1 is Russia, China, UK, US, and France, the +1 is Germany, an after thought… why not make it the P6? Too easy.

The notion that scrapping the Iran deal will somehow spur Iran to greater nuclear capacity is rather naïve. Iran has yet to be transparent, we really don’t know – or aren’t saying – their true nuclear capabilities. Despite the IAEA politely asking for pretty please permission to see all of Iran’s facilities, the request is not always granted. This same IAEA organization claims they will conduct ‘oversight’ to maintain that Iran stays within the confines of the Iran Nuclear Deal… But of course, how can they possibly when they don’t even know where all the sites exist and aren’t allowed access?

Allegations about facilities have abounded, and sometimes shelved. When denied access, the IAEA simply shrugs. With a budget of roughly ½ billion euros, what exactly do they do and where does their money come from?   Apparently the revenue is generated via ‘contributions from member states – perhaps why Germany was made a quasi member, to ante up. And the bulk of expenses are for staff, travel and consultants.

According to staff at the IAEA, their inspectors don’t have the expertise or knowledge to properly inspect and identify whether a machine is being utilized for military capabilities or not! Hence they require outside consultants. So why have the IAEA if outside consultants can perform the job at 1/20th of the cost?

The IAEA doesn’t have a clean bill of health in their performance having been called out for improper samplings and techniques in Syria. Even Democrat Feinstein has stated that the IAEA needs to be substantially overhauled if we are going to rely on their oversight.

Littered with oddities from the beginning, the Iran Nuclear Deal really had little to do with curtailing Iran’s nuclear capabilities and more to do with opening a floodgate for Corporate wealth – and putting Israel on notice.
