President Barack Obama has been busy acting like a tyrant. He wanted to pass the Obama-Iran deal without Congressional approval that would make it easier for a hostile regime to get nuclear arms.
It is impossible to trust a hostile regime, let alone negotiate with them. Obama’s willingness to work with the Iranian government has concerned Republicans and Democrats.
Now American officials involved in the deal have let the world know… Obama’s Iran deal violates the law. This is a big deal!
Some senior U.S. officials involved in the implementation of the Iran nuclear deal have privately concluded that a key sanctions relief provision – a concession to Iran that will open the doors to tens of billions of dollars in U.S.-backed commerce with the Islamic regime – conflicts with existing federal statutes and cannot be implemented without violating those laws, Fox News has learned.
At issue is a passage tucked away in ancillary paperwork attached to the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action, or JCPOA, as the Iran nuclear deal is formally known. Specifically, Section 5.1.2 of Annex II provides that in exchange for Iranian compliance with the terms of the deal, the U.S. “shall…license non-U.S. entities that are owned or controlled by a U.S. person to engage in activities with Iran that are consistent with this JCPOA.”
In short, this means that foreign subsidiaries of U.S. parent companies will, under certain conditions, be allowed to do business with Iran. The problem is that the Iran Threat Reduction and Syria Human Rights Act (ITRA), signed into law by President Obama in August 2012, was explicit in closing the so-called “foreign sub” loophole.
Indeed, ITRA also stipulated, in Section 218, that when it comes to doing business with Iran, foreign subsidiaries of U.S. parent firms shall in all cases be treated exactly the same as U.S. firms: namely, what is prohibited for U.S. parent firms has to be prohibited for foreign subsidiaries, and what is allowed for foreign subsidiaries has to be allowed for U.S. parent firms.
What’s more, ITRA contains language, in Section 605, requiring that the terms spelled out in Section 218 shall remain in effect until the president of the United States certifies two things to Congress: first, that Iran has been removed from the State Department’s list of nations that sponsor terrorism, and second, that Iran has ceased the pursuit, acquisition, and development of weapons of mass destruction.

Obama can’t be happy with James Rosen. The reporter who broke this story has already been illegally monitored by Obama’s Justice Department for years.
Barack Obama has broken the law, and this deal should be scrapped immediately. By making it easier for Iran to get nukes, Israel is at risk and so is America.
If only America had a real leader in the White House, these type of deadly and illegal deals would never be cut in the first place. We need Obama out of the White House immediately!
