Suspected for years of plotting to dismantle the U.S. electric grid, American officials have confirmed that Iranian military brass have endorsed a nuclear electromagnetic pulse explosion that would attack the country’s power system.
American defense experts made the discovery while translating a secret Iranian military handbook, raising new concerns about Tehran’s recent nuclear talks with the administration.
There are “fears that the weaponry, aircraft and equipment is at risk of being seized by Iranian-backed rebels or al-Qaeda, according to U.S. officials.” Combine this with the weapons Obama gave to “moderate rebels” in Syria that are now being used by the Islamic State, and the U.S. has provided weapons to a significant segment of the global jihad.
“Pentagon loses track of $500 million in weapons, equipment given to Yemen,” by Craig Whitlock, Washington Post, March 17, 2015:
Dictator Obama refuses to give Congress – the peoples’ only voice in government – any say in the nuclear deal. He will negotiate with a terrorist nation but not the U.S. Congress.
A source close to the two sides says that the P5+1 deal on Iran’s nuclear program must be endorsed under Chapter VII of the U.N. Charter to ensure that the sanctions are removed and that the deal would be binding on future administrations.
Officials in the United States said they have no intention of using the UN to cement the Iran deal.
And do you know why?
Because they want Congress left out completely.

On his return from a meeting with regional leaders in Guatemala, Vice President Joe Biden penned an op-ed for The Hill newspaper in Washington DC. In it, he laid out the Obama administration’s plans to promote economic development in Central America with an eye to reducing illegal immigration from that turbulent region to the United States. The proposals were astounding not because of their goal, though one can question how sincere the administration is about curbing illegal immigration given how warmly it has embraced those who have crossed the U.S. border without permission; but because they are based on principles that President Barack Obama has rejected here at home.
One of the first items Biden mentioned was “complete the construction of a gas pipeline from Mexico to Central America, making energy more affordable for consumers.” Though the idea of a pipeline has been around for some time, working groups were only set up last October to study the various regulatory, financial, commercial and budget issues involved for a gas pipeline from Mexico to Guatemala. Last Friday (March 13), Enrique Pena Nieto, President of Mexico, Otto Perez Molina, President of Guatemala, and Juan Orlando Hernandez, President of Honduras signed a commitment to the construction of the gas pipeline at a ceremony in Mexico’s National Palace. The $530 million project is still looking for foreign investment, though the Inter-American Development Bank (IDB) may fund much of it. IDB President Luis Alberto Moreno of Columbia was part of the Guatemala meeting with Biden and the Presidents of Guatemala, Honduras, and El Salvador. It is not clear if some of the $1 billion the Obama administration has requested in its 2016 budget for support of Central American projects will go the pipeline. However, the U.S. provides 30.1% of the IDB’s capital.
