Court Reveals Iranian Operatives In Charge Of Obama’s Iran Policy Since 2009 (Romney and the media silent)
September 26, 2012
By Doug Book
A ruling handed down on September 13th by the D.C. District Federal Court has finally made clear what many have known for years–that the Obama Administration’s Iran policy was initiated and advanced by a group with illicit, hidden ties to the Iranian Regime and financed by the U.S./Israel- hating George Soros.
In 2009, Barack Obama turned over virtually all responsibility and authority for foreign policy negotiations with Iran to Trita Parsi and his National Iranian American Council (NIAC). Founded by Parsi in 2003, the Washington-based NIAC is a powerful lobbying group that is “…widely considered the de facto lobby for the Iranian Regime in America.”
Like too many organizations that claim to represent the best interests of the nation of Iran and Iranian-Americans, the NIAC is tightly connected with and known to be funded at least in part by the George Soros empire. Small wonder NIAC advice on dealing with Iran was replete with claims that Israeli propaganda was responsible for the negative image imposed on otherwise peace-loving, misunderstood Iranian mullahs. Not exactly a friend of Israel is George Soros.
And how did the reputedly “non-partisan” NIAC suggest the Obama Administration proceed with negotiations? Simple. The Council “…opposes sanctions on Iran, soft-pedals any controversial events in Iran, and counsels “patience” regarding Iran’s stance towards its nuclear program.”
What better way for NIAC representatives to serve their hidden masters in Tehran than by promoting a policy of “peaceful coexistence” between the US and Iran. And to the NIAC, peaceful coexistence meant “…acceptance of [the] Iranian government, accepting Iranian hegemony in the Gulf and its place in other parts of the Middle East, removal of sanctions and pressure against Iran, abandon of assistance to the Iranian people’s resistance against the regime and etc.”
For the U.S., the consequences of this game of intrigue played by the Administration’s hand-picked, Iranian representatives are summed up in this statement by Barack Obama: “I’ve made it clear that the United States respects the sovereignty of the Islamic Republic of Iran, and is not interfering with Iran’s affairs.” And indeed, this is the path Barack Obama has followed. Not exactly reassuring words from a president charged with keeping the American public safe from a nuclear-bound administration of religious fanatics dedicated to our demise.

Can’t vote for Mitt Romney? Won’t vote for Barack Obama? Last week I had opportunity to interview Tom Hoefling, the America’s Party candidate for President of the United States. I asked him about several issues and his answers below are complete.
On Abortion: “Make no mistake, our Constitution explicitly and imperatively requires equal protection for all persons. “No person shall be deprived of life without due process of law.” “No State shall deprive any person of life without due process of law; nor deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws.” It is not optional…. My understanding of those facts is what led me to author a document which is also at the heart of our America’s Party Platform, the America’s Party Leadership Pledge, and my campaign platform.” [The Equal Protecton for Posterity Resolution ]
On The Role of Third Parties: “Political parties are nowhere mentioned in our Constitution. George Washington, in his Farewell Address, strictly warned us against the dangers of party factionalism. Instead, he rightly said that we should consider ourselves first and foremost to be Americans, united in one just cause, and pointed us to the only foundation upon which this republic, or any nation, could sustain itself in liberty: a shared moral basis.
“The supposed “two-party” system that has developed here is, in fact, more of a one-party state at this point. One beast with two legs, but always headed in the same general unprincipled, unconstitutional, socialist, statist direction, no matter which leg happens to be swinging forward at any given point.
“Sadly, most of the so-called “third” parties that have developed in the modern era lack a principled moral basis as well, and/or merely seek to duplicate what the Republicans and the Democrats already are. They don’t have a plan to change anything fundamentally, they simply seek to replace one of the existing two legs. Of course, predictably, they have all failed miserably.
“America’s Party, which we founded four years ago, is completely different. We have stripped the concept of a political party down to its bare essence: a clear statement of the moral principles of the Declaration of Independence, the stated purposes and requirements of the U.S. Constitution, the obligations of all officers of government to fulfill their sacred oaths made to God, to support that Constitution, along with the practical means to enforce consistent accountability on all who seek to be political leaders at any level of American governance.
“In 1956, President Dwight D. Eisenhower summed up what I believe about political parties very well: “If a political party does not have its foundation in the determination to advance a cause that is right and that is moral, then it is not a political party; it is merely a conspiracy to seize power.”
“I think most Americans will agree with me when I say that today’s Republican and Democrat parties have become little more than vehicles for self-seeking, self-aggrandizing unprincipled politicians to seize power. These old broken-down vehicles have become a real road hazard to life and liberty. Let’s junk them, and build a vehicle that is principled; one that is truly of the people, by the people, and for the people.”
On His Experience and Qualifications: “In the first place, I am qualified by my more than twenty years of demonstrated allegiance in the political arena to the principles and purposes that make up the raison d’etre, or reason for being, of the office.
“Secondly, in terms of my life experience, I believe I truly represent a large majority of the people in this country. As someone who has always had to work for a living to keep my family fed, clothed and housed, whether it was working for someone else or running a small business, I have walked in their shoes. I have personally experienced their struggles. I identify and empathize with them, and, once folks hear my story, they readily identify with me.
“In a system that is supposed to be one of representative self-government, based in principle, I think those are pretty good qualifications.”
Closing Remarks: “In my opinion, the country can’t be put back on the right track until conservatives return to the core principles of the country, which are primarily moral principles, and stop compromising them for the sake of any perceived political expediency.”

Paul Ryan says reversal of DADT repeal is step in wrong direction
MIAMI -- One year after the repeal of the "don't ask, don't tell" policy that barred openly gay and lesbian service members from serving in the military, U.S. Rep. Paul Ryan (R-WI) said in an interview with WPTV NewsChannel 5 that the controversial policy should not be reinstated.
"Now that it's done, we should not reverse it," Ryan told WPTV NewsChannel 5 during a visit to Miami. "I think that would be a step in the wrong direction because people have already disclosed themselves."
Ryan was one of 160 Republicans and 15 Democrats in the House of Representatives to vote against the repeal of "don't ask, don't tell" in 2010.
"I talked to a lot of good friends of mine who are combat leaders in the theater and they just didn't think the timing of this was right to do this when our troops were in the middle of harm's way in combat," Ryan said. "I think this issue is past us. It's done. And, I think we need to move on."
The comment came after progressive groups criticized Ryan, the candidate for vice president, for an appearance at the 2012 Values Voters Summit and accused him of being "out of step" with the views of young Americans.

Conservatives and the formerly grand old party:
"Everything that is right or reasonable pleads for separation. The blood of the slain, the weeping voice of nature cries; tis time to part." --Thomas Paine, Common Sense, 1776
"The phenomenon of millions of people voting for what they say they hate, solely out of abject fear of a 'greater evil,' is in fact the destruction of the whole idea of constitutional, republican, REPRESENTATIVE self-government. In other words, it signals the demise of the United States of America."
-- Tom Hoefling, Sept. 24, 2012
"The equal rights of man, and the happiness of every individual, are now acknowledged to be the only legitimate objects of government. Modern times have the signal advantage, too, of having discovered the ONLY device by which these rights can be secured, to wit: government by the people, acting not in person, but BY REPRESENTATIVES chosen by themselves..."
-- Thomas Jefferson, Letter to A. Coray, 1823
"We are grappling in our politics with matters of great importance, to ourselves, to our nation, to the world, and to the prospects for our posterity to enjoy the Blessings of Liberty. But, as I watched the stars fade from the sky this morning, and the sun rise, I was reminded once again that to our Creator, the One Whose glory the heavens declare, our troubles, which we tend to think are so daunting, are actually quite small. Not that He doesn't care, He most certainly does. After all, not a sparrow falls to the ground without Him, and even the lilies of the field receive His loving care. It's simply a question of proportion and perspective, and knowing Who is actually in charge. There is no danger that He cannot protect us from. There is no evil that can ultimately defeat us. Nothing, nothing at all, can happen without His all-wise superintendence. So, let us confidently, faithfully, do the simple things today that He has called us to do, while trusting Him, resting in Him, filled with the love, and the joy, and the peace, that only He can give."

"They are not to do anything they please to provide for the general welfare, but only to lay taxes for that purpose. To consider the latter phrase not as describing the purpose of the first, but as giving a distinct and independent power to do any act they please which may be good for the Union, would render all the preceding and subsequent enumerations of power completely useless. It would reduce the whole instrument to a single phrase, that of instituting a Congress with power to do whatever would be for the good of the United States; and as they would be the sole judges of the good or evil, it would be also a power to do whatever evil they please...Certainly no such universal power was meant to be given them. It was intended to lace them up straightly within the enumerated powers and those without which, as means, these powers could not be carried into effect."
-- Thomas Jefferson, Opinion on a National Bank, 1791
