Secret Obama-Era Deal With Iran Derails Key Sanctions on Iran’s Propaganda Network

Secret Obama-Era Deal With Iran Derails Key Sanctions on Iran’s Propaganda Network

HWH COMMENT: This confusing article fails to mention what type of sanctions were imposed on Iran for disseminating propaganda via their media to their populace.

How would the USA determine in Iran what is false news and what is not false news? It’s difficult enough in the USA to fact-check the lying fact-checkers.

It really isn’t our business to be proof reading the news stories in a foreign country, or to be issuing sanctions based on what Iranians report in their news programs. What have we become the professor of the world, grading every country’s homework? That’s an over-reaching manipulation, dictator-style tactic that we accuse everybody else of doing, yet we engage in the same behavior. It’s a waste of time, effort and money.

Yes, propaganda (fake news) is bad, but freedom of speech appears to allow it. So either believe nothing or believe everything and the propagandists will finally get the picture – that their lying news stories are not influencing the views of those whose minds they want to control – for personal or political or social benefit. In fact if one believes everything and nothing it deletes all efforts to influence. People are smart enough to make up their own minds.

Dissidents disseminate their own propaganda. So who is fact-checking the rhetoric they claim as facts? All dissidents of any nation want with a fervor to take down the existing leader and existing system of governance, yet nobody has a plan for what happens next. It’s all piece meal. Every individual in the movement has a suggestion as to what the country needs, but no one has a solution on how to make it happen, except to unseat a leader and a governing system.

They think erroneously that somebody else will step in and know exactly what to do and how to do it. Look back at Egypt and Libya and Iraq and Syria. Do you really think the USA had a plan of action beyond taking down a leader? How successful has the USA been In Palestine? Everybody thought all they had to do was get rid of Yasser Arafat, then Ariel Sharon, yet look where we are now? The same place. Nowhere.

Obama supposedly issued sanctions on Iran regarding their media propaganda machine, but made a private deal not to enforce those sanctions, an action the USA often takes when trying to satisfy all voting members of representative parties when in the process of forming an agreement or legislating laws. It accomplishes nothing but confusion, and confusion leads to chaos.

We criticize Russian Nationalists for trying to sway the USA populace via propaganda efforts prior to USA elections, but we in turn do the same in foreign countries – all countries where we have an interest in who wins an election. We support the foreign candidates in their respective countries whom we believe we can work with on common goals, or who will work with us. And we go to great lengths – corrupt lengths – to get them elected.

In essence we want these elected officials in foreign countries to put the interests of our country before the interests of their own, and yes we will and do pay a lot of money for that type of commitment. But in the end, what self-respecting country would make such a deal? It’s a slave-master relationship that the USA propagates all over the planet and punishes severely those who won’t go along with the program – Russia is one that refuses to be the slave of the USA. Ukraine on the other hand would give the keys to their country to the highest bidder for a tin of caviar.

Right now the USA is trying to overthrow a leader in Iran by giving comfort and financial support to its dissidents. How is that different from Russian Nationalists trying to influence American elections? A lot different. A lot worse. A lot more intrusive and dictatorial. We need to stop acting like the gangsters of the planet.

President Trump is going to have a problem deciding on any action he takes regarding sanctioning Iran for disseminating propaganda due to his own frustration with the democratic propaganda machine in the USA that dominates most of the news and opinion shows designed to take down the current USA president.

The dissidents are equally corrupt in the theatre of telling lies. They again erroneously think that the end justifies the means, that whatever lies it takes to unseat a dictator will be forgiven and in fact are necessary, because they regard the populace in the same way governments regard the populace – too stupid to make smart decisions, so the government aka dissidents work hard to make their minds up for them.

The smart move is to stay out of it. Let the Iranians sort out their own fake news issues. The USA government cleans their own stories the same as Iran or any other country cleans theirs. Words are cheap right now and there are no word battles worth fighting that any side on any issue can hope or claim to win.

Everything anybody says is meaningless in a chaotic climate.

Speak with actions not sanctions. People aren’t believing words right now.


Iranian dissidents outraged over Trump admin decision to waive sanctions of Tehran’s propaganda machine


BY: Adam Kredo February 21, 2018 12:50 pm

The Trump administration waived key sanctions on Iran’s main propaganda network last month, causing outrage among Iranian dissidents and administration insiders who tracked the effort to a little known Obama-era side deal with Iran that bars these sanctions from being implemented, according to multiple sources who spoke to the Washington Free Beacon.

The Trump administration, in an unpublicized move, waived sanctions on Islamic Republic of Iran Broadcasting, or IRIB, a satellite service that disseminates propaganda across Iran and routinely censors content.

Iranian dissidents who took to the streets in a renewed wave of protests had called on the Trump administration to sanction the IRIB in a bid to prevent the Iranian regime from crushing the latest protests.

While the Trump administration had initially promised to issue new sanctions on the IRIB, the State Department blocked the effort due to a little-known agreement reached between the Obama administration and Iran during the sensitive negotiations that led to the landmark nuclear agreement…

D-T and IRAN et al

Why would you want to scare the entire world just because you have a right as a sovereign nation to develop the same military weapons that other countries have?

Why do you chant Death to America in unison, then protest temporary and/or partial bans on certain Muslims from countries entering the USA that support death to Americans?

You want the USA to stay out of your business, then stay out of theirs. No?

Why do you want Muslims to come to America if you hate Americans and America and want to see all Americans dead?

Is your long-term goal to infiltrate the Land of the Jews? It certainly isn’t to integrate, since you bring your multitude of prejudices with you and keep them alive within your communities. Prejudices against women, children, other animals, other religions, anyone not Muslim.

Arrogance is the biggest of all prejudices and Muslims have it in spades – no matter where they live they look down their noses at everybody not like them, just like Jews thinking they are the chosen ones, thus more worthy than everybody else, since God sees them and talks to them.

To Muslims/Arabs: Why do you answer all questions regarding you with another question? Saudis do that arrogant thing too. It’s irritating. What are you trying to hide? Why no commas in your speech pattern? So nobody else can get their opinion heard? Are you so much better than anybody else that you don’t have to answer anybody’s questions regarding their fear of you, thus all Muslims? That’s how a prejudice spreads – when questions, valid questions, go unanswered, like we’re supposed to think the best of people who chant Death to Americans?

I know you’re response. A question regarding numbers of people for vs numbers against. But we don’t hear the voices of those against, and frankly, at this late date, who would believe those positive speaking voices, when the words are attached to agendas.

Saudis played a big part in 9-11 by rejecting their troubled son instead of working with him, like American families would have done, to direct his anger in more appropriate ways. It all starts in the families doesn’t it? Americans, then, have a valid concern about the structure of the Muslim families and while in America what control the family exercises over their sons and daughters as well as cousins and aunts and uncles.

President Obama recently clearly indicated before leaving office, that white people in America will have to continue to suffer the effects from slavery done years ago. For many years to come we white people will all be punished for crimes we had nothing to do with and never supported. We weren’t even born. Most Muslims agree that white people now alive should pay a price.

Obama comes from a Muslim family, but even if he didn’t, American blacks are big on punishment – when they’re the ones administering it. So that means that all Muslims, involved or not, will have to suffer for many years to come for the attack against America on 9-11. The mastermind and primary instigator wanting to rule the world via terror, that his Saudi family decided to disown instead of nurture, Osama bin Laden, orchestrated that attack. Obama must be consistent if he wants to be taken seriously after his eight year reign as President of the USA.

What are all you Arab nations doing to stop terrorism against Americans? We’re not all Jews, so stop using the argument that because Jews run America, then Muslims need to be with their Jew brothers and sisters – both Semites – to fight off all the anti-Semites of the world. The Hatfields and the McCoys hate each other but can’t live without the other. That’s the Arabs and the Jews (Muslims and Jews, however you want to parse it, in whatever order).

What differences are the Iranians trying to bridge with the Americans? Religious, cultural, sociological? Any? You just want opportunity you can’t get in your own country? The cradle of civilization? The baby in that cradle had to go to America to grow up, get a job and make money? They can’t do it in Iran?

The ‘unison’ part is what scares Americans. Every Muslim in the world having to bow five times a day at the same time to Mecca, no matter where they are in the world, tells Americans that Muslims have a supreme leader who has rules and laws that supersede the rules and laws of any other nation. The coming to America and not wanting to be American is what scares Americans.

The mob mentality scares Americans, because in every mob is one individual who will take extraordinary measures to get their point across.

People acting as one group instead of thinking as individuals scares Americans. The USA is a country of individuals with individual rights and freedoms. Why would you want to come to a country you hate? Why would you want to make all Americans fear you before you get here?

Why do you hold over America’s head your threat to pursue the making of a nuclear bomb?

Sure, the USA has nukes and they threaten to use them. “Nothing is off the table” they always say and they’re always wrong in saying it.

When the USA threatens to use nukes against the negotiating party, by saying in advance that “all options are on the table”, then where’s the parity?

No preconditions means that nuclear weapons and suicide bombers are on the table.

All sides want to negotiate from a position of strength.

The USA has nukes and is the Godfather to countries who do the USA favors by fighting terrorism the USA way. These countries are indebted to the USA for the protection the USA provides when these countries need to be protected from their enemies.

What’s Iran’s position of strength?  Suicide bombers and an over-worked and over-used historical philosophy that created then destroyed civilization with its arrogance. Oil used to be and short-term will continue to be, but too much oil sucked from the desert, over too long a period is going to cause catastrophic collapses in the earth.

Nukes and suicide bombers off the table in any negotiation worldwide if the USA doesn’t want to see a proliferation of such weapons. That is the only viable precondition.






IRAN – USA – ISRAEL

No nation on earth would allow any other nation, especially one proud to be its forever enemy, unfettered access to its military bases/installments, no matter what the reason.

The Israeli demand via USA Secretary of State John Kerry, at the Austrian talks in Vienna, is purposely made knowing that no country worth its salt would comply. The USA and Israel would laugh at the notion that an enemy state demanded of them unfettered access to their military bases. And the USA and Israel are the most active participants in spreading terror by keeping their own use of nuclear weapons on the table during any and all negotiating processes, and acting as the world’s go-to mafia boss nations, to solve the problems of other nations for a price.

Israel is the nation preventing an agreement, because they don’t want an agreement – any agreement. They want to destroy Iran’s nuclear capability in total, putting any dreams of peaceful nuclear power usage on hold for at least another decade. Israel further wants the economic sanctions against Iran to stay in place. If Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu had his way, they would never be lifted.

Look at the billions of dollars that Iran will amass if the sanctions are lifted, talking heads in the Israeli controlled USA press shriek in defense of Israel! (What this is really about is Jewish Jealousy. Israel’s envy of Arab/Persian oil).

Look at the billions of dollars the USA and Israel amass through their joint war machines, bombing, then leaving in shambles nations they deem unfit to compete in the world against their special brand of economic terrorism – meaning let us own you or we bomb you.

Remove Israel from the ‘table of talk’ and sign a deal before it’s too late. Israel does not and never will deserve a seat at that table, whether it be in person or behind the shadow of the USA-Israeli curtain, while it remains an occupier of any other nation.

Trying to control in the present what will or won’t happen thirteen years down the road of evolution, considering the rapid pace at which the planet is changing in all directions, is futile. Trying to keep a nation poor forever is futile. It won’t work. It hasn’t worked. It will never work. Forces unseen now, will rise up against the oppressor and their names will not be ISIS and ISIL. Their names will be quite familiar.

Enslaving nations for any reason, using any method, needs to end.

The USA and Israel went way to far with Iran. Any other nation would have pummeled both the USA and Israel by now. That they didn’t, will be recorded now and historically to their credit.
