John Bolton: U.N. is irrelevant to Iran deal (which Obama would ignore violations of)

Amb. John Bolton says Obama/Kerry Iran deal which Netanyahu publicly exposed through Congress would be a free-hand for Iran to develop nuclear weapons.

A U.N. Vote Is Irrelevant to the Iran Deal

The Security Council can’t stop the U.S. from using force to protect itself from anyone’s nuclear weapons.

JOHN BOLTON in Wall St. Journal March 16 

Press reports that President Obama will enlist the U.N. Security Council to bless his imminent nuclear agreement with Iran have unleashed considerable controversy. Many worry council action would bind the U.S. to the deal, circumventing congressional scrutiny. Moreover, Iran may see U.N. action as protecting it from a subsequent change in U.S. policy.

There is no need for worry. The Security Council can do nothing to limit America’s freedom to break from this agreement or take whatever action it deems necessary to protect itself.

First, even the U.N. will require Iran to comply with any commitments made to the Security Council’s five permanent members and Germany. Bureaucracy-loving diplomats and Secretariat personnel will probably create a council committee to monitor Iran’s performance, but neither the U.S. nor any other U.N. member must accept the committee’s judgment that Iran is in compliance when it has contrary information. Washington can act on what it knows, whether or not it discloses the extent of its knowledge.

Given Iran’s dismal performance in living up to the Nuclear Nonproliferation Treaty and existing resolutions requiring that it cease all uranium-enrichment-related activity, Tehran will almost certainly begin violating the deal before the ink is dry. Security Council committees will be bystanders, and the U.S., Israel and others threatened by a nuclear-capable Iran will rely on their own intelligence to detect Iranian cheating.

The gravest danger during Mr. Obama’s remaining two years is that the White House and State Department will ignore, play down or suppress information that Iran is breaking the deal. Ignoring palpable treaty violations is built into the DNA of many arms-control theologians, and this administration will insist that the bureaucracy follows the party line that Iran is complying.

Congressional committees (intelligence, armed services, and foreign affairs) will have a critical role in overseeing White House efforts to minimize dangerous Iranian behavior.

Israeli election special: Experts endorse Netanyahu's concerns about Obama trying to unseat him for exposing Islamist threat to Israel and the world

How do Israeli elections result in a government?    

Israel's electoral system uses proportional representation - voters don't vote for a local Parliamentarian, they vote for a party. Then the party makes up a list of preferred candidates, and allocate them seats in parliament, the number of which is determined by the percentage of the vote the party receives.

(Filmed Election Night in Jerusalem, 2009 at The Israel Project).
Because of the sheer number of parties, no one ever wins an outright majority, so the government is made up coalitions. In practice, this means that governments rarely ever last a full four-year term.

The prime minister is usually the leader of the party that can form the first coalition which has a majority.
Now, after the votes comes the haggling for the coalition. 

Seldom has a foreign election been so significant to the free world. While Israelis consider their distressed pocketbooks, they bear the weight of the free world upon their shoulders. They must elect a leader who'll defend them (and by proxy, the West) against the Iranian Islamist revolution- enabled by the Obama and John Kerry administration. The Iranian threat against the Gulf oil states and Israel is acknowledged. But Obama's threat to indirectly endanger Israel (and the West) to Islamism is hidden by the mainstream media in both the West and Israel. Will Israel be governed by a center-right coalition headed by Benjamin Netanyahu, or a center-left coalition, headed by Isaac Herzog? Israeli political thinker, Caroline Glick, analyzes the election quandry in perspective 

Column One: Israel’s next 22 months by Caroline Glick in the Jerusalem Post March 12

... Since taking office, Obama has used the US’s intelligence ties with Israel to harm Israel’s national security.
Caroline Glick of JPost.com
He has also used diplomacy to harm Israel. Last summer, Obama sought a diplomatic settlement of Hamas’s war with Israel that would have granted Hamas all of its war goals, including its demand for open borders and access to the international financial system.
Now of course, he is running roughshod over his bipartisan opposition, and the opposition of Israel and the Sunni Arab states, in the hopes of concluding a nuclear deal with Iran that will pave the way for the ayatollahs to develop nuclear weapons and expand their hegemonic control over the Middle East.
Amid of this, and facing 22 months of ever more hostility as Obama pursues his goal of ending the US-Israel alliance, Israelis are called on to elect a new government.
Israeli party leaders, Benjamin Netanyahu and Isaac Herzog
This week the consortium of former security brass that has banded together to elect a leftist government led by Isaac Herzog and Tzipi Livni accused Netanyahu of destroying Israel’s relations with the US. The implication was that a government led by Herzog and Livni will restore Israel’s ties to America.
Yet as Obama has made clear both throughout his tenure in office, and, over the past week through Malley’s appointment and Menendez’s indictment, Obama holds sole responsibility for the deterioration of our ties with our primary ally. And as his actions have also made clear, Herzog and Livni at the helm will receive no respite in US pressure. Their willingness to make concessions to the Palestinians that Netanyahu refuses to make will merely cause Obama to move the goalposts further down the field. Given his goal of abandoning the US alliance with Israel, no concession that Israel will deliver will suffice.
And so we need to ask ourselves, which leader will do a better job of limiting the danger and waiting Obama out while maintaining sufficient overall US support for Israel to rebuild the alliance after Obama has left the White House.
The answer, it seems, is self-evident.
The Left’s campaign to blame Netanyahu for Obama’s hostility will make it all but impossible for a Herzog-Livni government to withstand US pressure that they say will disappear the moment Netanyahu leaves office.  (Read it all in a new window
Knowledgable individuals we recorded in Washington and Nashville agreed with Mr. Netanyahu's exposing the Obama administration's strategy to not stop Israel's enemy Iran from continuing to amass refined uranium for 10-years. And these experts also objected to Obama pressuring Netanyahu and Democrats interested to listen to him- while former Obama campaign organizers operated an election campaign in Israel to defeat Mr. Netanyahu.

An investigatory bi-partisan panel has been convened in order to probe allegations that the US State Department gave a political group that opposes Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu taxpayer-funded grants, a source with knowledge of the proceedings told Fox News on Saturday.

The news broke a day after Netanyahu told The Times of Israel that it didn’t require “a tremendous leap of imagination” to believe that the Obama Administration wants to see him gone as prime minister.

The Senate Permanent Subcommittee on Investigations has agreed to look into charges that the State Department helped fund OneVoice and thus indirectly funded its affiliate V15 — created by Israeli activists ahead of Tuesday’s election as a concentrated, grassroots effort to unseat Netanyahu.

Meet Obama organizer working to boot Bibi

Mentored by disciple of notorious radical Saul Alinsky by Aaron Klein in World Net Daily  March 2, 2015

270 Strategies' Jeremy Bird brings Alinsky to Israel
Jeremy Bird, the national field director for President Obama’s 2012 re-election campaign, specializes in the revolutionary tactics infamously pioneered by radical community organizer Saul Alinsky.

Jeremy Bird is largely known for his 2012 campaign role, where he was central to building what he described as “the strongest grassroots organization in the history of American presidential politics.”

He explained Obama’s 2012 re-election infrastructure, aptly titled Organizing for America, had 631 offices in swing states alone, compared to challenger Mitt Romney’s 282.

According to Politico, Obama’s grassroots network — led by 270 Strategies’ Bird and Mitch Stewart — encompassed “10,000 neighborhood team leaders, 30,000 core team members and 2 million volunteers.”

Bird’s re-election team reportedly utilized publicly available information on voters, collecting as many as “500 data points on a single voter, from his reading habits to his opinions on the economy,” according to a 2013 Bloomberg profile.

Saturday Night Live actress/comedienne, Victoria Jackson, explains how her criticism of Obama administration policies has resulted in Lorne Michaels snubbing her from SNL's 40th Anniversary Reunion Special.

Ms. Jackson, a conservative Christian, is vocal in her opposition to Obama's tolerating Islamist growth and threats to Christians, Jews, and secular Muslims. She expressed her concern about Pres. Obama's facilitating Islamism internationally and domestically in a new song, "Is There A Muslim in the White House?"
