Yesterday, I posted a blog entry asking: IS PRESIDENT OBAMA PREPARING TO BYPASS CONGRESS TO SELL OUT THE UNITED STATES TO IRAN?
Now it appears that the situation has taken a turn for the worse. The discovery of secret side-agreements with Iran and others that may remain unknown to Congress and the general public.
Undemocratic Secret Side Deals Are Central To Iran Pact
Iran Deal: Congress has already given up any chance of stopping President Obama's surrender to Iran by agreeing to let him have a veto. Now Congress discovers secret side deals that it won't even get to examine.
The supplemental secret deals among America, Iran and the United Nations' nuclear weapons watchdog agency, just discovered by Rep. Mike Pompeo, R-Kan., and Sen. Tom Cotton, R-Ark., trample on Congress' constitutional role in foreign policy and threaten representative government in America itself.
These clandestine agreements, which the Obama administration apparently had no intention of disclosing, are far from being side items.
As National Review reports, "the International Atomic Energy Agency would negotiate separately with Iran about the inspection of a facility long-suspected of being used to research long-range ballistic missiles and nuclear weapons" — the Parchin military complex 19 miles outside of Tehran, where Iranian and Russian ballistic missile activities have reportedly taken place.
The U.N. agency hasn't been allowed into the site in a decade, and as Pompeo complained, keeping the details secret of what was agreed to regarding Parchin "is asking Congress to agree to a deal that it cannot review."
This secrecy appears to be just another example of the pattern and practice of President Obama and his cadre of progressive socialist democrats. Compromising the safety and security of America and her allies for Obama’s self-serving personal and political agenda.
And, as we have seen on numerous occasions, lying to the American people is nothing new to President Obama or his Administration. Perhaps he has
President Obama, the lying liar that lies …
Transparency and Open Government
Memorandum for the Heads of Executive Departments and Agencies
SUBJECT: Transparency and Open Government
My Administration is committed to creating an unprecedented level of openness in Government. We will work together to ensure the public trust and establish a system of transparency, public participation, and collaboration. Openness will strengthen our democracy and promote efficiency and effectiveness in Government.
Government should be transparent. Transparency promotes accountability and provides information for citizens about what their Government is doing. Information maintained by the Federal Government is a national asset. My Administration will take appropriate action, consistent with law and policy, to disclose information rapidly in forms that the public can readily find and use. Executive departments and agencies should harness new technologies to put information about their operations and decisions online and readily available to the public. Executive departments and agencies should also solicit public feedback to identify information of greatest use to the public. ~ BARACK OBAMA

Bottom line …
President Obama cannot be trusted. And, it appears that trusting Congress is also in doubt. Perhaps President Obama simply is kicking the can down the road when he will be year out of office and the chickens come home to roost. Telling Iran, if you want to keep your nuclear program, you can keep your nuclear program. Period.
We are so screwed.
