JOHN KERRY MEETING WITH IRAN’S FOREIGN MINISTER TO SABOTAGE TRUMP’S EFFORTS TO SCRAP THE IRAN NUCLEAR DEAL~RUSSIA HELPING TO BUILD ADVANCED NUCLEAR PLANT~TRUMP WITHDRAWS FROM DEAL~REPERCUSSIONS

ACTING ILLEGALLY, 
COMMITTING TREASON

Published on May 5, 2018
According to a report by the Boston Globe on Friday, former secretary of state John Kerry has been meeting with world leaders in an attempt to save the Iran nuclear deal ahead of its May 12th renewal deadline. Business Insider reports that Kerry has met with multiple officials, including Iran Foreign Minister Javad Zarif and leaders from France, Germany, and the European Union. Michael O’Hanlon, a foreign policy expert at the Brookings Institution, told The Globe, “It is unusual for a former secretary of state to engage in foreign policy like this, as an actual diplomat and quasi-negotiator.” O’Hanlon went on to say, “former secretaries of state often remain quite engaged with foreign leaders, as they should, but it’s rarely so issue-specific, especially when they have just left office.”

Does this not place Kerry in violation of federal law? The Logan Act forbids unauthorized people to engage in negotiations with foreign governments that are involved in disputes with the United States. The Logan Act’s intention is to prevent unauthorized negotiations from undermining the position of the U.S. government. Isn’t that exactly what Kerry is doing? Shouldn’t he be arrested and prosecuted?

“Kerry quietly seeking to salvage Iran deal he helped craft,” by Matt Viser, Boston Globe, May 4, 2018 (thanks to Dave):
WASHINGTON — John Kerry’s bid to save one of his most significant accomplishments as secretary of state took him to New York on a Sunday afternoon two weeks ago, where, more than a year after he left office, he engaged in some unusual shadow diplomacy with a top-ranking Iranian official.
He sat down at the United Nations with Foreign Minister Javad Zarif to discuss ways of preserving the pact limiting Iran’s nuclear weapons program. It was the second time in about two months that the two had met to strategize over salvaging a deal they spent years negotiating during the Obama administration, according to a person briefed on the meetings.
With the Iran deal facing its gravest threat since it was signed in 2015, Kerry has been on an aggressive yet stealthy mission to preserve it, using his deep lists of contacts gleaned during his time as the top US diplomat to try to apply pressure on the Trump administration from the outside. President Trump, who has consistently criticized the pact and campaigned in 2016 on scuttling it, faces a May 12 deadline to decide whether to continue abiding by its terms.
Kerry also met last month with German President Frank-Walter Steinmeier, and he’s been on the phone with top European Union official Federica Mogherini, according to the source, who spoke on the condition of anonymity to reveal the private meetings. Kerry has also met with French President Emmanuel Macron in both Paris and New York, conversing over the details of sanctions and regional nuclear threats in both French and English.
The rare moves by a former secretary of state highlight the stakes for Kerry personally, as well as for other Obama-era diplomats who are dismayed by what they see as Trump’s disruptive approach to diplomacy, and who view the Iran nuclear deal as a factor for stability in the Middle East and for global nuclear nonproliferation. The pact, which came after a marathon negotiating session in Vienna that involved Iran and six world powers, lifted sanctions in return for Iran stopping its pursuit of nuclear weapons.
“It is unusual for a former secretary of state to engage in foreign policy like this, as an actual diplomat and quasi-negotiator,” said Michael O’Hanlon, a foreign policy expert at the Brookings Institution. “Of course, former secretaries of state often remain quite engaged with foreign leaders, as they should, but it’s rarely so issue-specific, especially when they have just left office.”…

Russia starts advanced construction 

on new Iranian nuke plant

This is a strategic alliance that Russia is likely to come to regret. Historically, Islamic states don’t willingly enter into partnerships with Infidels that redound to the benefit of those Infidels. There are abundant examples this in my forthcoming book, The History of Jihad From Muhammad to ISIS, which you can pre-order here now.
“Russia Starts Advanced Construction on New Iranian Nuke Plant,” by Adam Kredo, Washington Free Beacon, May 4, 2018:
Russia has begun advanced construction on a new Iranian nuclear plant that could provide Tehran with a second, plutonium-based pathway to a nuclear weapon, according to regional reports that have rattled U.S. officials in the wake of a major disclosure showing Iran lied about its past efforts to construct nuclear warheads.
Russia’s state-controlled nuclear agency Rosatom announced that it has begun phase-two construction on Iran’s Bushehr nuclear power plant in Southern Iran, just one of several new nuclear sites that are being constructed under a multibillion-dollar agreement between the two countries.
Construction on the nuclear site kicked off just days after the Israeli government disclosed a cache of some 100,000 secret Iranian documents showing the regime lied about its past efforts to construct at least five nuclear warheads. This nuclear work was later archived and codified by Tehran so that it could continue such work secretly despite the enforcement of the landmark nuclear deal.
U.S. officials and regional experts said the new nuclear plant construction should be viewed with caution in the wake of Israel’s disclosure and place renewed focus by the international community on Iran’s clandestine efforts to use civilian nuclear sites to advance its weapons work.
On Thursday, Russia’s Rosatom announced “soil stabilization works under the reactor building of power unit No 2 commenced at Bushehr-2 NPP construction site,” according to reports in Iran’s state-controlled media outlets.
The nuclear work is being carried out under a 2014 agreement between Iran and Russia that paved the way for the construction of at least eight new nuclear sites, including the plant at Bushehr….

Trump Tears Into John Kerry Over 'Shadow Diplomacy' With Iran

TRUMP TEARS INTO JOHN KERRY OVER ‘SHADOW DIPLOMACY’ WITH IRAN

‘He was the on that created this MESS in the first place!’

President Trump railed against former Secretary of State John Kerry over his secret meetings with foreign officials to keep the U.S. in the Iran nuclear deal.
“The United States does not need John Kerry’s possibly illegal Shadow Diplomacy on the very badly negotiated Iran Deal,” he tweeted Monday. “He was the one that created this MESS in the first place!”

The United States does not need John Kerry’s possibly illegal Shadow Diplomacy on the very badly negotiated Iran Deal. He was the one that created this MESS in the first place!

Kerry had been one of the key architects of the Iran Deal, which was signed in 2015, and had been quietly meeting with Iranian and EU officials in recent months to strategize how to save his legacy.
“He sat down at the United Nations with Foreign Minister Javad Zarif to discuss ways of preserving the pact limiting Iran’s nuclear weapons program. It was the second time in about two months that the two had met to strategize over salvaging a deal they spent years negotiating during the Obama administration,” reported The Boston Globe on Friday.
Trump has repeatedly criticized the Iran Deal during the 2016 campaign and after he was elected, calling it “one of the worst and most one-sided transactions the United States has ever entered into.”

Iran was on its last legs and ready to collapse until the U.S. came along and gave it a life-line in the form of the Iran Deal: $150 billion

Likewise, the president has also attacked Kerry several times, calling him a weak negotiator who could’ve forged a less terrible deal had he not broken his leg.
“Not the best negotiator we have ever seen,” Trump said at an NRA event in Dallas on Friday, “He never walked away from the table. Except to be in that bicycle race where he fell and broke his leg.”
“I said, ‘Don’t tell him you broke your leg. Stay inside and say you don’t want to negotiate and you will make a much better deal,’” he said, “But he broke his leg. At 73 years old, you never go into a bicycle race. Okay?”

NSSF Expels Dick’s Sporting Goods

U.S.A. – -(Ammoland.com)-The National Shooting Sports Foundation (NSSF), the trade association for the firearms, ammunition, hunting and shooting sports industries;

Board of Governors today unanimously voted to expel Dick’s Sporting Goods from membership for conduct detrimental to the best interests of the Foundation.

Dick’s Sporting Goods recently hired a Washington D.C.-based government affairs firm, for “[l]obbying related to gun control.” Dick’s Sporting Goods CEO Edward W. Stack announced earlier this year the retail chain would end sales of modern sporting rifles, voluntarily raise the age to 21 to purchase firearms in their stores and called for more restrictive legislation.
Dick’s later announced they would destroy the remaining modern sporting rifle inventory. National Shooting Sports Foundation responded that business decisions should be individually made, but was nonetheless disappointed and the decision does not reflect the reality of the vast majority of law-abiding gun owners.
About NSSFNSSF
The National Shooting Sports Foundation is the trade association for the firearms industry. Its mission is to promote, protect and preserve hunting and the shooting sports. Formed in 1961, NSSF has a membership of more than 6,000 manufacturers, distributors, firearms retailers, shooting ranges, sportsmen’s organizations and publishers.

Goodbye, Dick's. And good riddance.

Goodbye, Dick’s. And good riddance.

GENESEO, IL –-(Ammoland.com)- Springfield Armory is severing ties with Dick’s Sporting Goods and its subsidiary, Field & Stream, in response to their hiring a group for anti-Second Amendment lobbying.
This latest action follows Dick’s Sporting Goods’ decision to remove and destroy all modern sporting rifles (MSR) from their inventory. In addition, they have denied Second Amendment rights to Americans under the age of 21. We at Springfield Armory believe that all law abiding American citizens of adult age are guaranteed this sacred right under our Constitution.
It is clear where Dick’s Sporting Goods and its subsidiary, Field & Stream, stand on the Second Amendment, and we want to be clear about our message in response. Their position runs counter to what we stand for as a company. At Springfield Armory, we believe in the right and principles fought for and secured by American patriots and our founding forefathers, without question.

We will not accept Dick’s Sporting Goods’ continued attempts to deny Second Amendment freedoms to our fellow Americans.

About Springfield ArmorySpringfield Armory
In 1794, the original Springfield Armory was designated as our national armory by General George Washington, and began manufacturing muskets for the defense of our young, free Republic. This monumental institution went on to serve as a think tank for developing innovative firearms concepts and producing some of the most storied rifle platforms in our country’s history. The Armory functioned as a firearms supplier for every major American conflict until 1968 when the government sadly closed its doors. In 1974, two centuries after its inception, Springfield Armory Inc. in Geneseo, IL revived the iconic heritage of the Armory to carry on its legacy and restore the Springfield Armory name.
Springfield Armory Inc. engineers, manufactures and assembles their legendary M1A, 1911, 911 .380 and SAINT AR-15 lines of firearms in Geneseo, Illinois. Since 2001, Springfield Armory has enjoyed a strategic, collaborative partnership with the state-of-the-art factory in Croatia working hand-in-hand to develop and engineer the multiple award-winning line of XD polymer pistols that have become staples in the US marketplace. We strive to honor this responsibility as guardians of the original Springfield Armory legacy by manufacturing the highest quality firearms to enable responsible citizens to preserve their right to keep and bear arms in the defense of life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.
With an unmatched emphasis on craftsmanship, performance and exceptional customer service, our mission is to forge superior firearms and provide the tools necessary to defend individual freedoms and equality for those who embrace the rights and principles secured by our Founding Fathers.

PLANNED PARENTHOOD SUES HEALTH & HUMAN SERVICES FOR SHIFTING TITLE X FUNDING CRITERIA TOWARD GROUPS THAT PROMOTE ABSTINENCE

PLANNED PARENTHOOD SUES HEALTH & HUMAN SERVICES FOR SHIFTING TITLE X FUNDING CRITERIA TOWARD GROUPS THAT PROMOTE ABSTINENCE
BY HEATHER CLARK
SEE: https://christiannews.net/2018/05/05/planned-parenthood-sues-hhs-for-shifting-title-x-funding-criteria-toward-groups-that-promote-abstinence/republished below in full unedited for informational, educational, and research purposes:
WASHINGTON — The abortion and contraception giant Planned Parenthood has sued the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) for altering its Title X funding criteria to prefer groups that promote abstinence and work with faith-based entities.
The organization points to language in HHS’ 2018 Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA), which states that applicants should encourage “avoiding sexual risk.” Planned Parenthood interprets this notation as referring to abstinence.
Among the application review criteria includes the outline that organizations should place “[a] meaningful emphasis on education and counseling that communicates the social science research and practical application of topics related to healthy relationships, to committed, safe, stable, healthy marriages, and the benefits of avoiding sexual risk or returning to a sexually risk-free status, especially (but not only) when communicating with adolescents.”
It also recommends “[a]ctivities for adolescents that do not normalize sexual risk behaviors, but instead clearly communicate the research informed benefits of delaying sex or returning to a sexually risk-free status.”
Planned Parenthood therefore bemoans in its lawsuit, filed on behalf of affiliates in Wisconsin, Ohio and Utah, that the 2018 application criteria “now give[s] the most weight to new ‘program priorities’ and ‘key issues,’ such as placing ‘meaningful emphasis’ on abstinence as an approach to birth control (even for adults), providing onsite primary care, and cooperating with faith-based organizations.”
It argues that the criteria violates the statutory mandate that Title X recipients must provide “acceptable and effective” family planning services, as Planned Parenthood doesn’t believe promoting abstinence is effective.
“Abstinence prevents pregnancy and STIs when used perfectly, but in reality it has extremely high rates of ‘user failure’—that is, people often decide to have sex, even if they had previously intended to abstain from sex,” the complaint reads. “Emphasizing abstinence to adult patients would be particularly inappropriate.”
“Indeed, placing a ‘meaningful emphasis’ on abstinence until marriage to an unmarried, healthy adult woman who wishes to be sexually active, and who comes to a health center for an IUD, would not only be a coercive and egregious clinical practice, but would disrespect the patient’s dignity as an individual … and could be understood as refusing service based on marital status,” it asserts.
The organization also takes issue with the preference that the applicant have a working relationship with faith-based organizations, as it contends that while it does provide sex education to professing religious groups, “some faith-based groups are opposed to comprehensive family planning care—the very thing that the Title X program supports.”
Planned Parenthood also argues that based on the 2018 criteria, religious organizations may now have the advantage to be granted Title X funding over Planned Parenthood.
“Competing applicants, like religious hospitals and organizations that focus on abstinence-only education or primary care services, may now score higher than Plaintiffs, who are committed to providing comprehensive, evidence-based family planning care. Plaintiffs thus face the prospect of losing some or all of the Title X funds on which they and their patients depend,” it asserted.
Planned Parenthood is therefore asking the court to declare the 2018 application review criteria “arbitrary and capricious,” and to issue an injunction against their enforcement.
“The Trump-Pence administration is trying to … push people toward abstinence or pressure women into marriage—instead of helping them get quality health care,” asserted Gillian Dean, Planned Parenthood’s senior director of medical services. “Everyone deserves the right to control their own bodies and future, and to get the care they need.”
1 Thessalonians 4:3-5 states, “For this is the will of God, even your sanctification, that ye should abstain from fornication, that every one of you should know how to possess his vessel in sanctification and honor, not in the lust of concupiscence, even as the Gentiles which know not God.”
Ephesians 5:3 also teaches, “But fornication, and all uncleanness, or covetousness, let it not be once named among you, as becometh saints.”

U2 COMES OUT IN FAVOR OF REPEALING OF IRISH LAW PROTECTING RIGHT TO LIFE FOR UNBORN

U2 COMES OUT IN FAVOR OF REPEALING 
OF IRISH LAW PROTECTING RIGHT TO LIFE 
FOR UNBORN 
BY HEATHER CLARK
SEE: https://christiannews.net/2018/05/03/u2-comes-out-in-favor-of-repealing-of-irish-law-protecting-right-to-life-for-unborn/republished below in full unedited for informational, educational, and research purposes:
The internationally acclaimed secular rock group U2, led by the Irish-born Bono, has come out in favor of repealing Ireland’s Eighth Amendment, a pro-life law that “acknowledges the right to life of the unborn” and “guarantees in its laws to respect, and, as far as practicable, by its laws to defend and vindicate that right.” The revelation has generated disappointment from followers who are baffled as to why anyone would support killing a baby.
The group posted a graphic to Twitter and Instagram on Tuesday that read “Repeal the 8th,” the words being written inside a red heart. The post refers to an upcoming referendum vote on May 25, in which residents will be asked whether or not to repeal Article 40.3.3 of the Irish Constitution, also known as the Eighth Amendment.
A yes vote would result in the replacement of the current text noting that the nation’s laws defend the right to life with a clause that reads, “Provision may be made by law for the regulation of termination of pregnancy.”
It would also allow lawmakers to move forward with a proposed replacement for the current Protection of Life During Pregnancy Act, which bans abortion except for the purported instance of risking the life of the mother.
While U2’s post generated over 18,000 likes, it also generated much commentary, including from followers who were disheartened by the group’s stance. Some advised that they won’t attend their concerts anymore.
“Wow. Celebrating the taking of innocent lives? If ever someone lost their way. No innocent child deserves to be torn limb from limb and injected with poison to the heart. Why are you so blinded?” one commenter wrote.
“You were one of my favorite bands, and now one of my least favorite bands. Absolutely disgusting you would encourage the murder of millions of children. SHAME ON YOU,” another stated.
“This breaks my heart. I have loved and followed you for 20 years. I still love you, but I can’t follow you down this road. My tickets to upcoming shows will go unused,” a third remarked.
U2’s guitarist, known as Edge, told the Irish Mirror this week that he thinks that repealing the Eighth Amendment is “the smart thing to do.”
“It is huge, and I know there is a huge divergence of opinion on it, and I accept that,” he said. “And it is hard to take a stance without having to acknowledge there is another side to it, but I am for it and I support repeal. It is the smart thing to do.”
As previously reported, in 2015, Bono, who professes to be a Christian, also came out in support of a referendum to legalize same-sex “marriage” in the predominantly Roman Catholic Republic. He announced at a concert in Phoenix, Arizona that he was dedicating his song “Pride (In The Name Of Love)” to the Irish movement.
“If God loves us, whoever we love, wherever we come from, then why can’t the state?” Bono claimed.
Jesus said in Matthew 7:21-23, “Not every one that saith unto me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ shall enter into the kingdom of Heaven, but he that doeth the will of My Father which is in Heaven. Many will say to me in that day, ‘Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in Thy name? And in Thy name have cast out devils? And in Thy name done many wonderful works?’ And then will I profess unto them, ‘I never knew you. Depart from me, ye that work iniquity.’”

U2's Bono
U2 COMES OUT AS PRO-ABORTION 

(Friday Church News Notes,May 11, 2018www.wayoflife.org[email protected], 866-295-4143) – republished below in full unedited for informational, educational, and research purposes:


The influential Irish rock band U2 has tweeted support for repealing Ireland’s pro-life Eighth Amendment and legalizing abortion on demand. The amendment guarantees pre-born humans the right to life (“U2 Comes Out,” LifeSiteNews.com, May 2, 2018). The vote will occur on May 25. Three members of the band claim to be Christians, including the frontman Bono. U2 has a great influence in the contemporary worship movement. Bono is praised almost universally among contemporary and emerging Christians. Phil Johnson observes that “Bono seems to be the chief theologian of the Emerging Church Movement” (Absolutely Not! Exposing the Post-modern Errors of the Emerging Church, p. 9). Eugene Peterson, author of The Message, says U2 has a prophetic voice to the world; he claims that Bono is a prophet like John the Baptist (foreword toGet Up Off Your Knees: Preaching the U2 Catalog). Yet Bono lives in blatant contradiction to the reality of biblical grace, and not only in the matter of killing unborn babies. He is described in the following passage: “They profess that they know God; but in works they deny him, being abominable, and disobedient, and unto every good work reprobate” (Titus 1:16). Much of Bono’s language cannot be printed in a Christian publication. In 2006 Bono said, “I recently read in one of St. Paul’s letters where it describes all of the fruits of the spirit, and I had none of them” (“Enough Rope with Andrew Denton,” March 13, 2006). In October 2008, Fox News reported that Bono and rocker friend Simon Carmody partied with teenage girls on a yacht in St. Tropez (“Facebook Pictures Show Married U2 Singer Bono’s Rendezvous with Sexy Teens,” Fox News, Oct. 27, 2008). U2’s Christian supporters tout the band’s “biblical” lyrics as evidence of the reality of their Christianity. But U2’s ambiguous lyrics do not present a clear Christian message, and the few songs that do mention Christ typically do so in a strange, unscriptural manner. “The listener senses something religious is being dealt with but can’t be quite sure what” (Steve Turner, Hungry for Heaven, p. 172). They never preach the gospel of Jesus Christ in a plain manner so that their listeners could be born again. They pose moral questions in some of their songs, but they give no Bible answers. Bono’s view of the Bible was stated in a December 2017 interview with Rolling Stone magazine. “The person who wrote best about love in the Christian era was Paul of Tarsus, who became Saint Paul. He was a tough ——. He is a superintellectual guy, but he is fierce and he has, of course, the Damascene experience. … Now, it doesn’t cure him of all, of what he thinks of women or gay people or whatever else, but within his context he has an amazingly transcendent view of love”(“Bono: The Rolling Stone Interview” with Jann Wenner, Dec. 27, 2017). So according to Bono, the apostle Paul needs to be cured of his view of women and gay people and other things. Doubtless a modern, relevant, supercool guy like Bono can straighten out poor misguided Paul. (For more on this see “The Rock Group U2,” www.wayoflife.org.)
