I’m still combing through the details of the “deal” that President Obama, Secretary John Kerry and others in the administration struck with the Iranian regime, but one thing is obvious: it essentially clears the way for Iran to become a nuclear-armed power. Setting aside multiple, hard-fought UN resolutions calling for Tehran to suspend uranium enrichment, the “deal” allows Iran to continue enrichment and requires little to nothing of the regime in return for the easing of some sanctions.
So in a nutshell, the “agreement” removes the demand that Iran stop enriching and permits them to benefit economically. For that, we got nada. Not even the release of the American pastor, Saeed Abedini, who is being held in one of Iran’s worst prisons for preaching Christianity. Abandoning Americans under fire? Well, that’s nothing new for this administration. See: Benghazi, 2012.
Heck of a job, Barry.
But as we digest the details of this “peace in our time, 2013 edition,” let’s remember the bigger picture of Obama’s bigger agenda. It is the central theme of my book, “What The (Bleep) Just Happened?”
Obama is not interested in simply redistributing our wealth here at home. Of course, he is doing that fiercely and rapidly. Obamacare isn’t about health care or health insurance. Rather, it’s the most massive wealth redistribution scheme in American history. But if Obama were solely concerned with redistributing wealth here at home, we could manage it and ultimately get out from under it (as tough as that may be). The problem is that his objective isn’t that limited. His objective is much bigger, much grander, much more dangerous.
Obama is redistributing EVERYTHING that has always made America great: our wealth at home, yes, but also our economic power, our military strength, our Constitutional uniqueness, our borders, our superpower status, our diplomatic prowess, and our very exceptionalism. He is redistributing EVERYTHING.
The Iran “deal” fits nicely into his redistributive framework. He has so diluted American power that our allies are now on their own and our adversaries are running circles around us, getting everything they want.
And remember: like Obamacare and everything else that has occurred under Obama, this is all by design. It’s all part of Obama’s goal to “fundamentally transform the nation.”
Iran with a nuclear weapon reduces American power and Israel’s strategic advantage even further. Voila! The “fundamental transformation” of the world.
Obama proceeds with it at home and abroad with all deliberate speed. And enemies like Iran would be entirely short-sighted and stupid not to play along, because they’re on the upside (as are Russia, China, the Muslim Brotherhood and all of America’s adversaries) of Obama’s “fundamental transformation” of the world. Full-stop.
