By now a Politico investigation has been made public.
What’s the deal with the Iran Deal?:
It pretty much confirms that Obama gave weapons, cash, and aid to Iran under the guise of an Iran Deal, while “downplaying the national security threat posed by the seven Iranian-born prisoners and 14 fugitives freed as part of a deal to bring back five American prisoners held captive in Iran”:
1) Deal was never signed by Iran.
2) Obama pretended it was.
3) Obama said it was to limit Iranian nuclear capabilities.
4) Obama lied.
5) Since Deal wasn’t legally binding, it’s as if it never existed, meaning Obama simply gave Iran weapons without a legal context protecting the American people (while pretending there was the entire time). Just like the Palestinian payment made in cash.
Your father has a car. It is a lemon (bad car).
He bought the lemon from Barry O. Your father knew the car was a lemon, but bought it anyways because your mother thought the contract signed would protect them.
In reality, your father bought the car and didn’t sign the contract, and Barry O pretended to your mother that there was a contract and that it was signed, because he was a Libyan terrorist who wanted to give your father plutonium but didn’t want to make it known. And your father didn’t want your mother to find out.
So now, there’s no legal contract (Iran Deal), your father has weapons-grade plutonium (Iran), your mother (American people) is furious that she’s now on the hook for lost money, and there’s a lemon car sitting in the driveway, which will probably be driven by you when your older because you have no other choice (eventual invasion of Iran over nuclear capabilities).
So what does this mean? Well, it’s a Politico investigation, and it may actually be true. We’ll have to see if the details work out (they do). A full public inquiry should be undertaken by the Republican Congress.
So the real question becomes, “If we’ve known about it since September 2016, why is this being revealed now?”
Curiously, Operation GothamShield is also underway.
Now I’ve made my contempt clear for conspiracy theorists before (they do too much “reading between the lines” for my tastes), but what if they’re on to something? Let’s entertain that idea.
< adjusts tinfoil hat >:
This is an article being passed around (suddenly, with renewed life) on April 24, 2017, from two news outlets that were pro-Democrat / pro-Hillary. Politico ran the investigation, and VOX is reporting on Politico’s results. But if this is old news, why is it receiving such a weird popularity boost, from pro-Democrat sources against a figurehead of their own?
Operation “GothamShield” (among many other smaller drills in D.C., Northern Virginia, Philadelphia, and Maryland) is supposedly (according to conspiracy theorists) a “cover” to provide support for an eventual terrorist attack that’ll be coincidentally in the same timeframe (page 6). The history of their paranoia regarding this subject comes from the perceived notion that on 9/11, FEMA workers were nearby preparing for the theoretical disaster of a plane terrorist attack when, whatdyaknow, by golly planes happened to hit the World Trade Center and Pentagon.
What’s funny about all this is that FirstNet, the training host – basically a First Responder Network Authority – also imbues their heritage from that fateful day. It’s claimed that First Responders couldn’t radio their colleagues effectively because there was no network put in place to ensure the means to do so.
However, this is now obviously no longer an argument FirstNet can make, as there are emergency channels specifically hosted by all cell carriers to ensure privileged access to local authorities in times of emergency. The World Trade Center was also incredibly robust in its engineering, it really was a one-of-a-kind structure, and even emergency systems 17 years ago had a fraction of the capability and power that they possess now.
The Atlantic chimed in to say FirstNet was non-operational as of last year (“A $47 Billion Dollar Network That’s Already Obsolete”)… This is a problem, because:
It took FirstNet two years just to recruit a skeleton staff, only to be hit by an inspector general’s report that found potential conflicts of interest and problems with the awarding of initial consulting contracts. It then took another two years to issue a request for proposal (RFP) asking contractors to bid on the work to build and operate the system.
The organization also suffers from claims of racketeering:
The FirstNet RFP [a document that solicits proposal, often made through a bidding process, by an agency or company interested in procurement of a commodity, service or valuable asset, to potential suppliers to submit business proposals]… seeks one company to operate the nationwide system.
(Verizon, AT&T, and one or more firms that would gather dozens of regional partners into a consortium are the likely players.) The bidders have to offer to pay FirstNet at least $5.6 billion spread over 25 years in return for the bandwidth that FirstNet would make available to them.
The lucky winner will essentially receive a monopoly in any sort of natural disaster where FirstNet is deployed on American soil, so long as they cough up more than $6 billion for the privilege.
They’ll own the market not only on providing any sort of emergency response, but also against the vendors. Every state will have to buy in, from the fire departments to the police departments to the hospitals:
According to the RFP’s statement of objectives, the winning bidder will build and operate the system with 20 MHz of 700 MHz broadband spectrum under a lease agreement. In return, the company can monetize any unused network capacity
When FirstNet first tried to summon an RFP, they were stonewalled with a warning:
Katsaros said FirstNet has taken past IG findings seriously and made progress on addressing recommendations but added, “If these three areas of short- and long-term risk are not addressed between now and the launch in approximately midyear 2018, implementation may not succeed…. I think there’s a lot still unknown in this pre-award phase.”
Even worse, it seems that this training event going smoothly (or deadly, depending on how one views the opportunity) is hinged upon its rollout. Their overarching implementation problem seems to be that rural areas cannot provide enough coverage – but that shouldn’t be a problem for the cell carriers. It’s simply not something FirstNet should be involved with, as coverage is better than ever, and definitely better than it was on 9/11. They’ve sunk billions into dealing with a problem that’s ultimately not their concern!
After much delay, missed deadlines, and re-submitting of documents (including a court case to finalize the deal), AT&T was selected as the carrier of choice for the next 25 years. AT&T will now be able to deploy FirstNet, while making profits off the excess bandwidth capacity.
To that end, Rivada Networks co-CEO Joe Euteneuer in a statement just after the ruling, stated:
“FirstNet has made its choice,” said . “Now it is time for states to make theirs. Those that stand by idly will be forced into a federal solution that may or may not suit their needs or budgets. We look forward to working with the states to ensure that they receive a network equal to the promise made to public safety when FirstNet was created.”
Rivada is a competing cellular carrier which felt it had been unfairly treated in the bidding process in being preemptively removed from the list.
And what does the former Director of Homeland Security (2013 – 2017) say about the matter?
he was “not familiar with what they’re supposed to be doing.”
But Muh North Korea!:
So right now, they’re preparing in the New York/New Jersey area for a theoretical 10 kt bomb from North Korea. And other drills are taking place (on the same day) in Philadelphia? And a “breaking news story” is suspiciously making the rounds, being allowed to go viral despite being penned by pro-Democratic outlets? And the articles themselves are only documenting information that Reuters independently discovered a year and a half ago? Whether or not something happens tomorrow doesn’t detract from the seriously shady means of operations that FirstNet has employed all along.
Let’s focus on North Korea.
The only problem with their antagonism? North Korea doesn’t have those launching capabilities.
Not just with a 10 kt bomb, with nothing.
Oh look, New York’s on the opposite side of the country. But they can at least hit California…
Ooh, I feel safer already!
But you know which country does have the capability to hit New York/New Jersey with nukes? Iran.
Specifically the partnership that Obama allowed to ferment with his “deal” (as the terrorists he claimed were innocent had support networks in New York / DC):
Under the terms of a new understanding between the two countries, the North Koreans have agreed to share all the data and information they received from their successful test last October with Teheran’s nuclear scientists.
Now the long-standing military co-operation between the countries has been extended to nuclear issues.
As a result, senior western military officials are deeply concerned that the North Koreans’ technical superiority will allow the Iranians to accelerate development of their own nuclear weapon.
So by proxy, not only was Obama helping Iran, he was also directly providing staying power to North Korea. There’s a reason for North Korea’s sudden success in the market! And while North Korea has done business with America since the 80s, that was under a different Korean leader, with different aims (the Cold War), and most importantly, different targets in sight.
This means the President of the United States literally gave active nuclear support to part of former President George W Bush’s famous “axis of evil” (his rally call to even enter the much maligned “War on Terror” in the first place).
