It was only a matter of time before celebrities started weighing in on what happened in New Zealand., and it didn’t take long.

Last Monday, singer John Legend opened his pie-hole and told us that President Trump, “needs to apologize for demonizing Muslims.”

Legend had more to say…“He needs to apologize for demonizing brown people who have tried to come here and have a better life. He characterizes their desire to come here and work and feed their family as an invasion.”

On the off chance that you thought this was it…that his diatribe ended there…think again…

“When people of such influence and such stature are endorsing such a hateful, evil ideology, it emboldens those who will go out and do something really evil and nasty, like what happened in New Zealand. We need the president to speak out against it.”

Oh…there’s more…

Over the past couple of weeks, liberals have dug themselves quite a hole. Prevailing wisdom offers this bit of sage advice…when you find yourself at the bottom of a deep hole…

Stop digging.

Liberals, being liberals simply got themselves a bigger shovel.

I won’t get into the whole mess concerning that obtuse “resolution” passed in the House last week regarding hate speech while completely ignoring Ilhan Omar from whose islamist lips the statements came that started the whole thing because my RIGHT SIDE PATRIOTS partner Diane Sori has covered that extremely well in her latest op-ed, “A Resolution and a Truth Many Find Offensive…Part 1” which you can read by clicking here.

In other words…rather than dealing with the pile of dirt liberals left beside the hole that they’re digging, I am choosing to deal with the hole itself.

While it has been said that a rose by any other name is still a rose…the hole at which liberals find themselves at the bottom of today…by another name is…

The Wall: Dollars and Common Sense

According to David Cicilline, a liberal congressman from Rhode Island, President Trump’s proposed border wall, “is a colossal waste for money.”

That said…it’s been the better part of 35 years since I took junior high algebra, and to be honest, it was not my best subject. I didn’t see the need for it. In fact, my algebra teacher once asked me, in front of the entire class, why I had such a hard time grasping algebra.

My response was simple…

I told her that I used NUMBERS for MATH…and LETTERS for SPELLING. While that snarky line drew scorn from my algebra teacher, it elicited everything from snickers to full-on laughs from my classmates but that’s not the point…

The point is…one doesn’t have to jump through mathematical hoops, flaming or otherwise, to get to the heart of the abject stupidity of Cicilline’s statement. In fact, all one has to do is apply…not common core…but common sense to it.

Okay…let’s get after this…

Let’s just face some hard, cold facts…truths that liberals aren’t going to like one little bit, but truths nonetheless.

After eight years of the Obama regime, and the possibility of his third term had Hillary won in 2016, America needed to be saved…not just from liberals and/or their socialist agenda…but from itself.

Let me explain…

Obama knew full well he wouldn’t be reelected to a second term based on performance, because his goal was to wreck America. He called in fundamental transformation, but make no mistake, his vision was to wreck it, and to win a second term for his regime, he would have to divide America in order to conquer America…hence…the rise of racial politics guided by Obama and the liberal elite.

Fake News Takes Aim at RIGHT SIDE PATRIOTS

Last week, liberals, the fake news mainstream media and a proscribed terrorist organization decided to use RIGHT SIDE PATRIOTS, myself and Diane Sori and our respective bolgs, The National Patriot and The Patriot Factor as weapons with which to attempt to assassinate the character of a very, very good man…Congressman Brian Mast of Florida.

On Tuesday night, Congressman Mast was our special guest on RIGHT SIDE PATRIOTS, where we spoke to the Congressman about his bid for a second term in the House, his campaign, how he connects with his constituents, working his way through the swamp and a number of other things.

We did not talk to Congressman Mast about Islam…and even the fake news mainstream media, the Hill, and even CAIR acknowledged that as a fact, but it didn’t stop them from doing what they do best…

Last week, President Donald J. Trump was in a round table discussion regarding sanctuary cities and immigration policy when Fresno County California Sheriff Margaret Mims brought up the violent gang Mara Salvatrucha, better known as MS-13.

Mims stated, “There could be an MS-13 member I know about — if they don’t have a certain threshold, I cannot tell [Immigration and Customs Enforcement] about it.”

At that point, President Trump stated…

“We have people coming into the country, or trying to come in — and we’re stopping a lot of them — but we’re taking people out of the country. You wouldn’t believe how bad these people are. These aren’t people. These are animals. And we’re taking them out of the country at a level and at a rate that’s never happened before.”

Ramadan…A Fast with a Menu

By: Craig Andresen and Diane Sori / American Political Radio

Author’s note: every people needs a sense of humor and that includes muslims. And to that affect we offer you a snarky look at Ramadan…now don’t come looking to chop off our heads

Muslim husband to wife as dawn approaches: “I think I’ll have to brush my teeth ONE more time.”
Muslim wife to husband: “So stop fasting already.”

Ramadan…not really a holiday per se as it’s just the name of a month…a month that actually revolves around food or should we say a muslim’s self-perceived lack thereof. Ramadan…a month where muslims are ‘supposed’ to remember the needy and poor by giving to charity…after all when one thinks of islamists one naturally thinks of charity now doesn’t one. And aside from the garb most islamic men wear, they really don’t have much in common with Mother Teresa.

Ramadan is also a month where muslims ‘supposedly’ get spiritually closer to allah. You know allah…the made up deity conceived via an epileptic seizure anointed by Muhammad to be islam’s god…a god who commands death to those not following his ideological manifesto…sura and verse.

And when this ‘supposed’ month of reverence and piety ends…a month where fasting is a must-do…Eid then begins. Eid…a three day long “chow-down” consisting of eating a “huge dinner” with family and friends…which by the way is done every night while ‘fasting’ during Ramadan…and where the faithful give gifts of candy and money to their many many many…many many many many…children birthed by islam’s allowed up to four wives.

And while during Eid it’s mandatory to dress up in one’s party best… muslim women now happily take off their black burka ‘garbage bags’ and put on their dark gray or midnight blue ones…an islamic version of a month’s worth of casual Fridays.

Ramadan…a month of spiritual rules and must-dos including fasting from dawn to dusk…with food and drinking liquids being a definite no-no…with smoking and having sex not allowed as well…means the goats, sheep, and camels are very happy this month. And while those who are “ill, elderly, pregnant, breastfeeding, diabetic, menstruating, or traveling” are not required to fast, those who do fast have no idea what the word ‘fasting’ actually means.

Fasting to muslims during Ramadan means food and drinks are only allowed before dawn and after dusk…as in they can freely eat for roughly 12 hours a day…making the concept of fasting but a joke. It’s the difference between “I’m so busy at the office I’ll have to skip lunch”…and…”Hi, my name is Ghandi.”

Skipping lunch is not fasting for when one is allowed to pack on the proverbial “feed bag”for 12 hours a day one tends to be fatter at the end of Ramadan than one was when Ramadan began.

And all that extra weight must truly drive muslims crazy for fasting during Ramadan is ‘supposedly’ a spiritual cleansing…a cleansing to make one even more pious…so it’s no wonder muslims are so crabby at the end of their fast. Being seriously stuffed to the gills by the end of the month…way more than they are during the rest of the year…makes it so much harder to make bombs that go boom and to pray with ones butt pointed up in the air lest CCR’s “Bad Moon Rising” replace the more traditional muslim call to prayers.

And with said fast comes the obligation that sinful behavior negates the fast and as such is ‘verboten’ during Ramadan…sinful behavior as in no fighting…except in self-defense that is. But with Ramadan each year actually showing a statistical increase in violence we guess that means it’s still okay to blow something or someone up or to rape a camel or a goat that might be attacking you..after all skipping lunch does tend to cloud one’s judgment…something allah will surely understand.

And then there’s the sinful behavior of lying which also negates fasting’s ‘supposed’ rewards. So the faithful must truly be in a quandary for if lying during Ramadan is also truly ‘verbotin’ how can it be that at the same time the qur’an commands taqiyya as a must do…24/7-365 taqiyya in fact…but thanks to granola bars and deli counter ham sandwiches we infidels are a hardy bunch not so easy to take down.

No lunch…no snacks…for 12 hours does get to one I guess.

Now as to the word Ramadan itself, which comes from the Arabic root word, “ar-Ramad,” notice that one cannot spell Ramadan, ar-Ramad, or for that matter “Muhammad” without including the word “mad”…the very word which tells everything one really needs to know regarding the true meaning of Ramadan.

And that alone might be why muslim women excused from obligatory fasting should they happen to be menstruating, brings to the fore just how mad a muslim woman with PMS must be.

Now to be exact, the month-long period of fasting for those muslims who don’t have the sniffles… which is only mandatory between dawn and dusk…sees fatwas being issued declaring that those millions upon millions of “refujihadis” who have migrated to places with such natural phenomenon as the midnight sun or polar night…should follow the timetable of Mecca.

That of course throws off the whole daylight savings time thing, as the thriving populations of muslims at both the North and South Poles must set their watches all the way back to the 7th century. That said, we have watched nearly every National Geographic documentary regarding the land of polar bears and the land of penguins, and have yet to notice even a single garbage bag wearing or self-detonating head down, ass up follower of the manifesto.

There is a natural reason for that, by the way, as no camels, goats or donkeys can be found at either pole, and penguins are too hard to hold onto. And those muslims who try to mate with polar bears quickly become polar poop…as the great white bears don’t observe Ramadan and thus…no fasting for them.

Now then on the off chance that any muslim would inexplicably find him or herself at either the North or South Pole during Ramadan, the more commonly accepted opinion is that in those areas they should follow the timetable of the closest country to them in which night can be distinguished from day.

This of course means that the best bet for Eskimuslim men or women is simply to claim they are traveling or menstruating, and head for the all-you-can-eat barbarian buffet.

Beware however, should you be a muslim in a country where night and day are clearly marked, which would obviously include all your various Buttcrackistans, because a failure to fast during Ramadan may well be considered a crime.

Take Algeria as an example…back in October 2008 the court of Biskra condemned six people to four years in prison and heavy fines because one of those guys ate a lone ‘booger’…and according to a 1968 law in Kuwait, the penalty for eating during Ramadan is roughly 100 Dinars and no more than a month in jail.

Over in the UAE however, eating while the sun shines during the month of fasting is considered a minor offense and the snacking muslim offender is usually sentenced to something like 150 hours of community service…which of course begs the question…what in the wide, wide world of islamists constitutes “community service?”

In the civilized world community service would include things like picking up litter in the park, washing graffiti off the sides of buildings or working at the local soup kitchen, but in the UN-civilized muslim world (and take note that you can’t spell uncivilized without U.N.), one can easily suppose that community service would include chores such as…

Working in bomb disposal…

Performing at the local Islamic karaoke bar…

Or picking up trash along the highway.

Things are a bit different for muslims in Saudi Arabia however, and getting caught with a mouthful or sipping a tall cool glass of anything wet during Ramadan could very well get one flogged, sent off to prison or if the offending muslim happens to be from some other islamic nation…such as the North or South Pole…they could be deported as well.

In proper perspective the punishments for breaking the rules of anything but a strict fast during Ramadan seems pretty stiff stuff…so why not just get to the heart of the matter and send the well hydrated and/or anything but malnourished rogue jihadis to bed without their dinner?

Doesn’t that seem more appropriate?

ISIS, naturally, has warped the whole thing from a month long al-Jazera sponsored muslim mattress marathon sale into a time to launch attacks all over the world…which when one thinks about it is exactly the same thing ISIS does when it’s not Ramadan so who really can tell the difference?

So…islam being not really a religion has a holiday which is not a day but a month during which practitioners fast on Thanksgiving sized meals as long as it’s dark outside. During ‘ramalamadingdong’ muslims are supposed to engage in charity, which they rarely if ever do, and some are encouraged to step up the violence which they always seem to do anyway.

Frankly, there really doesn’t seem to be any difference between the month of Ramadan and the other eleven months on their calendar save for skipping lunch, but since muslims make a big who-ha over it…the least we could do is recognize the abject obliqueness of it all, and so in an effort to assist in the annual Ramadan celebration, we at RIGHT SIDE PATRIOTS have come up with a sentiment for a new line of ‘Happy Ramadan’ greeting cards…

We Know You’re Islamic, and Therefore Barbaric,
and Hungry and Thirsty as well…
May Your Bombs Go Off Early,
Your Virgins be Burly,
And there be Nothing But Bacon in Hell.

Happy Ramadan to the ‘so-called’ religion of peace.

The Deal is Dead…Now, Arrest John Kerry

On Monday, Sarah Huckabee Sanders was asked by some short bus riding liberal member of the mainstream media about whether or not the Trump administration would be taking any advice from former Secretary of State John Kerry on the Iran nuclear deal.

Her response was epic…

“I don’t think that we would take advice from somebody who created what the president sees to be one of the worst deals ever made. I’m not sure why we would start listening to him now.”

John Kerry…that’s private citizen John Kerry…

Iran Exposed…The Evidence is In

By: Craig Andresen and Diane Sori / American Political Radio

“Iran lied.”
– Two words spoken by Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu that says it all…two words presented with definitive truth to back those words up.

And not only did Benjamin Netanyahu back them up, but immediately after the presentation officials from the Trump administration confirmed the authenticity of the very nuclear documents he presented as truth. In fact, President Trump himself praised Benjamin Netanyahu for disclosing the thousands of secret documents…documents encompassing what Iran called ‘Project Amad’…proving that Iran not only lied about its nuclear ambitions being peaceful, but that they violated the very so-called “landmark” nuclear deal they claim to have upheld.

And Prime Minister Netanyahu’s public disclosure truly makes it impossible for President Trump to allow the U.S. to remain in Obama’s 2015 very bad nuclear deal…a deal Trump has called “the worst deal ever”…as also including in his presentation was documentation showing the scope and scale to which Iran tried to hide their ever deceitful actions before they signed onto the JCPOA (Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action).’s presentation titled Atomic Archive: Iran’s Secret Nuclear Files…and given in English live from Israeli military headquarters in Tel Aviv…confirmed that “new details in this information are consistent with a large body of evidence and intelligence the U.S. government has amassed over many years on Iran’s past clandestine nuclear weapons program,” and that while the administration’s analysis of the documents now being presented to the public is “ongoing,” the Trump administration “agrees with the Israelis that…this information provides new and compelling details about Iran’s past efforts to develop nuclear weapons deliverable by a Shahab-3 ballistic missile.”

And Netanyahu affirmed that said “information indicates plans for Iran’s nuclear weapons program included building five nuclear weapons”…weapons he compared to five Hiroshima bombs…with Israel and the United States being assumed as their likely destinations…and that, “It demonstrates once again that Iranian leaders have for years lied to the world and their own citizens when they claim Iran has never pursued nuclear weapons.” But this is something we suspected all along…something Obama not only knew but aided Iran in doing while knowingly and willingly pushing forward a deal not in America’s…not in the world’s…best interest… something we believe he must now answer for.

“Iran has systematically hid evidence of clandestine weapons work from international inspectors,” is the word now coming from administration officials, but it goes way deeper than that for the 100,000+ documents, (55,000 pages and 55,000 files, charts, blueprints, plus photos) and 183 CDs Netanyahu has in his possession for “safe keeping”…what he calls a “half ton” of Iranian documents…proves that Iran deliberately, calculatingly and with malice intended, hid from the world an “atomic archive” of documents on its true nuclear program and ambitions.

“This is an original Iranian presentation from these files,” Netanyahu said about his presentation while stressing that “the mission statement is to design, produce and test five warheads with 10 kiloton of TNT yield for integration on missiles.” Dangerous stuff indeed…stuff thankfully “appropriated,” if you will, when the Israeli Mossad raided a “secret location” in the Tehran neighborhood of Shourabad…a location discovered back in February 2016 and kept under tight Israeli surveillance since then…a location that looked on the outside like nothing more than a “dilapidated warehouse.”

Taking those original documents and smuggling them back to Israel on the same night…a night this past February not January as some news sites are reporting as per Netanyahu’s Tuesday May 1st Fox and Friends Interview…was a “great intelligence achievement” as per Netanyahu, proving once again that no one should ever doubt the reach or the abilities of Israel’s Mossad.

And know that President Trump was briefed about the raid itself during Mossad Chief Yossi Cohen’s most recent visit to D.C., and was informed of the actual contents of the “appropriated” documents when Netanyahu met in the Oval Office with Trump on March 5th. Also telling Trump all would be exposed after both Israel and the U.S. together translated, assessed, and analyzed said documents, most of which were in Farsi…the two true leaders of the free world also spoke by phone on April 28th to discuss how Israel would make that information public.

And this past Monday, April 30th that information became part of the public discourse.

“Iran lied about never having a secret nuclear program. Secondly, even after the deal, it continued to expand its nuclear program for future use. Thirdly, Iran lied by not coming clean to the IAEA,” Netanyahu said as he summed up the findings, adding that, “the nuclear deal is based on lies based on Iranian deception.”

Simply put…the Iranian nuclear deal was an overt act of ‘taqiyya’ both by Iran and the man who pushed a little too hard for it…Barack HUSSEIN Obama.

And as the Iranian regime continues to lie to the world about its ultimate nuclear ambitions…and as Benjamin Netanyahu says he will share this information with both our Western allies and with the IAEA (the International Atomic Energy Agency), Europe’s leaders continue to urge President Trump not to abandon the deal for fear that not only would the U.S. then be the only signatory of the deal who is out of compliance, but that by being so Iran could now openly restart it’s nuclear weapons program not waiting until the now in place restrictions on uranium enrichment expire in 2025.

In other words, the European leaders are trying to convince President Trump that Iran holds the ‘trump card’ not the U.S…and to that we say Europe is playing a foolhardy game indeed…more on that in a bit.

And so in the wake of Prime Minister Netanyahu’s speech it was not at all surprising that major world players reacted in favor of keeping the nuclear deal in place with so many saying the deal such as it is, is a way to “keep Iran honest” regarding their nuclear ambitions.

In using that particular avenue of illogic what various world leaders are actually saying is that they trust the most untrustworthy rogue nation in the entire region…if not the world…to abide by a deal to limit their nuclear ambitions…nuclear weapons ambitions they bold faced lied about when striking the deal itself.

Let us explain…Iran has claimed, despite the evidence presented by Benjamin Netanyahu, that they had abandoned their nuclear weapons ambitions back in 2003. Obviously, as the documentation now clearly shows, Iran was still engaged in both research and nuclear weapons development programs right up until the deal. In fact, in an effort to preserve their past research…the previously stated Project Amad…Iran moved their now exposed nuclear weapons research files to what they believed to be a more secure location just last year…some two years after the deal was made.

Interesting move from a rogue nation whose leaders claimed they had no interest in or intention of building nuclear weapons. So what this means is that even while “negotiating,” and we use that term lightly, Iran continued to claim they had no interest in building nuclear weapons and that they had abandoned Project Amad back in 2003, but would now hold to a deal they lied to get into.

And to that affect Steffen Seibert, the German government spokesman said, “It is clear that the international community had doubts that Iran was carrying out an exclusively peaceful nuclear program. It was for this reason the nuclear accord was signed in 2015, including the implementation of an unprecedented, thorough and robust surveillance system by the International Atomic Energy Agency.”

Now we have two important questions for Mr. Seibert… first, if the IAEA surveillance system was as robust and thorough as you claim sir, why didn’t the IAEA discover the “half ton” of documentation directly related to Iran’s development of nuclear weapons…and second, if your country had doubts regarding Iran’s claims that they only sought a peaceful nuclear program, why is it that you now believe the only way to ensure that is to stick by a deal that was obviously negotiated in the worst of all bad faith?

Federica Mogherini, the EU High Representative for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy says that, “the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) is responsible for verifying Iran’s compliance with the deal.” And pray tell Ms. Mogherini, with what exactly does the IAEA expect Iran to comply…the terms of the very deal they lied to get into or the actual lies they told to get into said deal?

And while the bulk of Europe’s leaders continue to defend said nuclear deal even after Netanyahu’s speech exposed Iran’s lies and their continued desire to build a nuclear arsenal, there remains a key component of said deal they all seem more than willing to ignore…that being the time-limited sunset clause baked right into the deal…the very clause where Iran in just a few years time can again crank up their nuclear program at will and produce as much enriched uranium as they want…and most importantly no longer having to hide what they’re doing.

Remember, the deal as it stands now expires in 2025, which then begs the obvious question that no one in the E.U. seems to want answered…if Iran did not intend to construct their own nuclear arsenal replete with short, medium, and long range ballistic missiles as their delivery system, why then did they try to hide the documentation of Project Amad instead of just turning over that very documentation to the IAEA to begin with?

To that affect, former Secretary of State John Kerry issued this statement the day after Prime Minister Netanyahu exposed Iran’s blatant lies, “Every detail PM Netanyahu presented yesterday was every reason the world came together to apply years of sanctions and negotiate the Iran nuclear agreement — because the threat was real and had to be stopped. It’s working!”

Working for whom Mr. Kerry? Obviously, it’s working out exactly the way both Iran and Kerry’s former boss, Barack HUSSEIN Obama, planned it. Iran has wanted nuclear weapons all along… never wavering from or even really trying to hide that desire…and both Obama and Kerry were and still are well aware of that fact. Iran blatantly tried to conceal their obviously ongoing nuclear research and development plans by not turning over all said documents to the IAEA, instead choosing to sit and wait for the “sunset” of the deal to bring that research and those development plans to fruition. And this means that Iran, despite their lies to the contrary, never abandoned Project Amad in 2003, in fact it’s very much alive today.

And yet another issue no one who continues to defend the nuclear deal wants to touch upon concerns the reach of Iran’s heavily touted long range ballistic missile program. This raises the question that if Iran had no intention of building nuclear weapons…weapons that would need to be delivered to its targets by ballistic missiles…why then has Iran continued to build and test such missiles…a direct violation of Annex B of resolution 2231?

So while former Secretary of State John Kerry and most of Europe’s leaders insist that Iran has not violated the nuclear deal, the fact remains that they don’t really have to because their ally North Korea has done the nuclear weapons development for them, while Iran in turn has been doing the must have delivery system development for North Korea.

Can Europe’s leaders be so ignorant as to not see what is more transparent than a pane of glass…can they not see that Iran and North Korea are working together to complete their respective nuclear arsenals under the very noses of the rest of the world and the IAEA…or is there something more than simple ignorance at play where Europe is concerned?

There is indeed more…much more.

Remember the ‘trump card’ we spoke about earlier…well as per President Trump, Iran is “behind every problem” in the Middle East…and guess what he’s right for never forget that Iran alone is the world’s leading state sponsor of terrorism. And Iran uses that sponsorship…coupled with threats of more terrorism to come…as a way to keep Europe’s leaders towing their islamic line…towing their line even as fellow P5+1 members France, Britain, and Germany have said that they will stay committed to the agreement even if Trump decides to pull us out. And why…simply because the leaders of Europe think that a flawed deal is better than no deal at all.

“It is essential to maintain it [the agreement] to avoid proliferation. In this period when we see the risks with North Korea, we must maintain this line,” so said French Foreign Minister Jean-Yves Le Drian who remains ignorant to the fact that proliferation is happening now just as it has in the past and will in the future. This fact alone proves that for Europe proliferation is not the issue…economics is.

In other words follow the money for trade connections and existing investments are the true reason Europe is siding with Iran…that plus the release of Iranian oil…an import Europe desperately needs to help bring down its per barrel cost of oil.

And with Iranian exports to the E.U. increasing by a whopping 375% during the first year of the nuclear deal alone; and with European companies having already invested large sums of money in Iran itself; coupled with the reintroduction of banking connections between Iran and the West… even with the caveat of major European banks having to date refrained from directly dealing with Iranian government owned companies…European credit agencies have now stepped in to provide export guarantees to European companies willing to trade with Iran.

Simply, the European leaders truly but erroneously believe that with their renewed economic activity in Iran… as in the return to Iran of major European companies… and their buying of now released Iranian oil, that that in time will lead to a strengthening of Iranian civil society. But nothing could be farther from the truth as a civil society requires a civil government not a government entrenched in theocratic ideological leanings, meaning that for a civil society to return to Iran…for economic stability and growth to return as well…the mullah’s grip on Iranian society must be removed…something that must come from within Iran’s populace itself…a populace currently facing a 10.4 percent unemployment rate and 10.5 percent inflation.

But even knowing that Europe’s leaders fear that if Trump pulls us out of the Iranian nuclear deal then U.S. sanctions will again be put into place…extremely harsh sanctions that could affect business deals Europe already has in place with Iran. And to that affect, Europe’s leaders are worried that we could punish European companies, banks, and/or agencies that continue to deal with Iran. Now looking for ways to protect their investments one idea being touted is the idea of “protective legislation”…as in the E.U. itself blocking said sanctions.

However, the E.U. forgets that in realty sanctions really do not work for there is always ways to circumnavigate sanctions via countries not taking part in said sanctions. So, there is a truth that Europe must now face…do they stand by the U.S. if Trump does indeed pull us out of the Iranian nuclear deal or do they try to go around the sanctions by continuing to deal with Iran via lets say Russia or China.

In whatever way the E.U. decides to go either by their circumnavigating new sanctions or by offering multi-national companies that are engaged in trade with Iran some form of emergency credit to cover potential losses, there remains a very real possibility, one threatened by Iran itself, that Iran could, whether or not the U.S. gets out of the deal, leave the deal themselves.

According to Iranian Deputy Foreign Minister Abbas Araghchi, “The status quo of the deal is simply not sustainable for us, whether or not the Americans get out of the deal.” Add that to the facts that Iran has for months been stating that they might well abandon the nuclear deal over issues regarding Western banks ongoing refusals to do business with Tehran and Iran’s other threat to pull out of the Nuclear Nonproliferation Treaty as well.

Obviously, Iran wants no part of the very bad deal not because the deal has stopped them from obtaining their own nuclear arsenal, but because it has slowed them down just a bit. Under the terms of the deal, should Iran actually abide by said terms, they would have to wait another seven years to do what they are now doing in secret, and Iran simply doesn’t want that sort of delay. But if there is any lingering doubt that Prime Minister Netanyahu, and for that matter President Trump, have been 100 percent correct regarding Iran and their clandestine nuclear weapons program all along consider the following.

While issuing threats to abandon the nuclear deal earlier this week, the head of Iran’s Atomic Energy Organization, one Ali Akbar Salehi, was quoted as saying, “Iran is not bluffing…Technically, we are fully prepared to enrich uranium higher than we used to produce before the deal was reached…I hope Trump comes to his senses and stays in the deal.”

One simple fact remains ever present throughout all of the rhetoric, that being that in just seven years none of the rhetoric will matter as the deal will for the most part expire and Iran will be completely free to do as they will, so does it even matter whether President Trump ends our participation in that deal on May 12th?

No, it doesn’t, but that leads us to one final thought, one final possibility that most people have forgotten about.

Earlier this year, in mid-January, President Trump floated the idea of renegotiating the Iranian nuclear deal, an idea that in fact goes all the way back to mid-November of 2016. President Trump has been talking about a renegotiated deal since just days after his election and months before his inauguration, but what might such a renegotiated deal really look like?

Our guess is that such a newly formed deal would likely include banning all Iranian ballistic missile testing, a sharp reduction in the range of missiles Iran would be allowed to possess, a ban on any and all intervention by Iran or their proxies in any military action anywhere in the Middle East, and a substantial lengthening of the timeline of the current deal, perhaps by several decades.

In that way, a Trumpesque renegotiated deal would not be a great deal different than what French President Macron proposed last week in his meetings with President Trump, just a good deal stiffer and certainly with teeth built into it that the current deal sorely lacks.

It’s not a matter of whether or not Iran would ever agree to such a renegotiated deal or even whether or not Iran would agree to reopen negotiations…in fact they have announced that they will not renegotiate the deal…but we believe President Trump will still dangle such a proposal out there for the whole world to hear that would include the stipulation that unless Iran agreed the U.S. would have no choice but to walk away, thus putting the pressure and the responsibility for the deal’s collapse squarely on Iran’s shoulders and not on the shoulders of either the U.S. or Israel.

This, we believe, is the course President Trump will take and we have a very substantial reason for this belief…H.R. McMaster, who as National Security Advisor had been advising President Trump to stay in the deal is out and in his place we now have John Bolton who sees clearly the absurdity of the current deal, and has been no fan of it at all. And also out is Rex Tillerson, now the former Secretary of State under whom would have fallen the duty to renegotiate the deal, and Tillerson had made it clear he liked the current deal and believed we should stay in said deal. Replacing Tillerson is Mike Pompeo who like both Bolton and President Trump is fully cognizant regarding the truth of the current deal and knows that it is a recipe for sure disaster.

And so with Bolton and Pompeo now in Trump’s corner… a corner where Trump knows Iran will never renegotiate this deal…a strong case can be made regarding the fact that there is now overwhelming evidence…thanks to Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu…that Iran not only negotiated the original deal in bad faith and with blatant lies, but with the U.N. also confirming that Iran has violated the terms of the original deal in regards to stockpiles of heavy water used for the production of plutonium, a key ingredient in nuclear weapons.

With the deadline for a decision looming, do not expect May 12, 2018 to be the end of the very bad Iranian nuclear deal, rather expect that date to be the beginning of the end for Iran as President Trump leads from the front and shows the rest of the world how the ‘art of the deal’ should have been handled in the first place.
