“Path to Glory”
Paul Vallely (MG, US Army Ret) and Tom Marin
Today, we Americans are marching to a new ‘Path to Glory” for our country much as our founders and ancestors had to do. Today, we must be Americans First and rise above partisan politics and political parties. We must face the future through a reality prism and seek to restore this great country, our Republic and the Constitution. The challenge ahead is to select common sense leaders who understand our challenges and have the vision to lead us to a secure America so all can be in the pursuit of happiness and a thankful life.
On April 19th 1775, British regular troops and colonists came to blows in what many believe was the real beginning of the Revolutionary War.
Evil has many forms, and simply stated, it is a word to describe the acts of omission or acts of commission to inflict wanton harm or destruction or, according to Wiktionary, a deliberate violation of some accepted moral code of behavior, i.e. a fiduciary obligation. Evil, as defined by The Free Dictionary, is that which causes harm, misfortune, or destruction: as in a leader’s power to do both good and/or evil.
The history of human existence, an accumulation of human events, has included the dominance to control resources and enslaving the free and the weak in order to increase power and greed. It was only natural for our founding fathers to plant our flag in our course of time in history and lay claim to life based on freedom and liberty. It makes perfect sense that our founding fathers began the Declaration of Independence with the words, “When in the course of human events…” Our enemies both foreign and domestic do not want to discuss the course of human events, events and facts that happened, but only want to focus on their elixir of the future, “tomorrow”, aka the new world order, based once again on natural resources, the consumption of resources, and control.
The manifestation of evil that we have been witnessing, especially the last seven years, as well as the complete lack of enforcement of our laws by people we have entrusted with our safety and security, not only patronizes who we are as individuals, our heritage and what we stand for as a nation but also hurls us into great risk. We can no longer tolerate this ongoing sabotage by omission with its willful blindness and negligent disregard. It has been a deliberate effort to accomplish the complete destruction of America and its way of life. The intent is to create a new world order based on resource management where American citizens and other freedom-loving people will be part of the resources to be managed as the lowest replaceable units. An American citizen needs only to read the details of The Affordable Care Act to understand this herding.
At the Battle of Concord and Lexington, ordinary residents of the colony of Massachusetts made a decision of conscience to stand up against the increasingly oppressive tyranny of King George III and the British Parliament after a series of methodical steps to limit their freedom, their physical security, and to inhibit their health and welfare by limiting their retention of the benefits of their own labor and use of their private property by raising taxes and controlling commerce. Even in 1763, the cartel of entrenched parliamentarians did not want to relinquish control to subordinated subjects who were regarded merely as producers and consumers of goods and services for the benefit of The Bank of England and who reported to the higher authority of the crown and the elite, all knowing, ministers of control. Unable to coerce the residents under their authority, the British Parliament ordered the seizure of their guns and ammunition.
Nothing has changed. Human behavior and the battle of good vs. evil is ongoing. The patriots at Concord knew it, and as Ronald Reagan clearly stated almost two centuries later, “The Founding Fathers knew a government can’t control the economy without controlling people. And they knew when a government sets out to do that, it must use force and coercion to achieve its purpose. So we have come to a time for choosing.”
Through the years, with all the “legislative” tools and devices, from the 1760’s and 1770’s, from The Sugar Act, The Stamp Act, the Quartering Act, The Declaratory Act, The Townshend Revenue Acts, The Tea Act, The Intolerable and Coercive Acts, and The Prohibitory Act to 1978-2008 to The Depository Institutions Deregulation and Monetary Control Act of 1980, to The Credit Card Rules and Credit Card Act, to The Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act , to The Commodity Futures Modernization Act, to The Community Reinvestment Act, and to 2009-2016 and Obamacare and the Trans Pacific Partnership, which was negotiated in secret for a reason, and to the 229 restrictive executive orders that equate to 1,086 pages issued by the current administrative controller, Reagan’s words rang true in 1981 as if he was speaking in 1775 at the North Concord Bridge. It was as if he was establishing a bridge for the path to glory to the past and to tomorrow for today. Our past, present, and future (Yesterday, Today and Tomorrow) are based on the confrontation of good vs evil. It is in the genre of novels, art, and movies all throughout the history of man and the history of Christianity. This is why “progressives”, which are actually fascists and communists, want to rewrite history and forget our heroes. Our past also confirms the confrontation of evil and its consistent defeats. At each and every juncture in American history, individuals made a decision to stand up and be free. To do otherwise, they would relegate their destiny to evil. Today we must confront “The Total Collective Effort of Evil” in our time and to do so we must recognize “the artful liars” and all the hidden agendas in selling us out to a system of control. Statesmen need to come forward to actually serve the people and preserve and protect our Republic. The “politocracy” must be eradicated. A very simple question needs to be asked as we evaluate how to proceed at each event, “Who benefits and who gets hurt?” We believe the minutemen at Concord and Ronald Reagan knew the simple answer and the courage it took to never relinquish freedom.
“There are no easy answers, but there are simple answers. We must have the courage to do what we know is morally right.” – Ronald Reagan
“All that is necessary for the triumph of evil is that good men do nothing” – Edmund Burke
“The accumulation of all powers, legislative, executive, and judiciary, in the same hands, whether of one, a few, or many, and whether hereditary, self-appointed, or elective, may justly be pronounced the very definition of tyranny.”
— James Madison, The Federalist, No. 47

Five Hundred Million Dollars for how many trained rebels? Four, five, or six?
How could you not know exactly how many were trained at less than ten? Because that too is a lie: a half billion dollar set of lies and failures.
This is not just colossal ineptitude that borders on criminal negligence, it is much worse. What if General Austin’s testimony is masking an even larger, more embarrassing failure, that if revealed would expose the true intentions of the Obama Administration regarding Syria? Yes, it is!
Figure 1 – Lloyd Austin III, commander of U.S. Central Command, testifies at a Senate Committee on Armed Services hearing on Capitol Hill in Washington, D.C
Not only did they lie to cover up their poor progress, prompting the intelligence community to complain and starting an IG inquiry, the Senate Armed Services Committee and the people have been buffaloed even further. The lie is bigger and our sources in Syria have seen it and lived it.
This is not just a Keystone Kops folly as we once thought. This stoops into the realm of the criminal, and Obama is direct responsibility.
He shares responsibility for more than just the deaths of so many men, women, and children in Syria; he is also partially responsible for the humanitarian refugee crisis now over running Europe because he helped create the power vacuum.
It is not solely a stark lack of leadership, more importantly it is an intentional alignment with the wrong people in the Middle East – the Qataris and the Muslim Brotherhood.
It is complicity with the Muslim Brotherhood (MB) from one end, and Iran, Hezbollah, and Assad from the other end. And you thought the Iran Deal was bad enough.
The newest lie is not just the embarrassing testimony Gen. Austin III gave as CentCom Commander; sheepishly revealing that their training program was a waste of time and money, but what he did not tell the committee was the real reason only four, or five to six men were trained. Actually it was closer to 60.
What is worse is that it was all the rebels they could get to sign up after being forced to sign an affidavit prior to beginning their training in Turkey, They had to promise to only fight ISIS and not Al Assad. When the true FSA fighters found out, the vast majority walked away; some to join with the extremists just to survive and continue the original fight or to just become refugees.
Apparently it was more palatable for the Obama Administration to just look like bad managers than it was to admit that there were thousands who wanted to be trained who saw the treachery firsthand and left. They understood something few in the west know, this was always about Turkey and the MB and the ultimate goal of making Syria fall under an ‘Ottoman’ umbrella. But there are worse failures; more bumbling, and clearly a complicity that is concealed by apparent incompetent.
Figure 2 – CIA watching for Iranian nuclear collaboration with rogue states like N. Korea – about time.
Additionally, what good are the changes America made to secure our nation after 9/11 if the Director of the CIA is just now asking if there is a cooperative effort between Iran and North Korea as our country is quickly heading to a finalized deal with Iran over nukes?
In addition, all this is occurring as North Korea continues to threaten nuclear strikes against the US, but it is just now that Brennan begins to take notice. We have news for Director Brennan, it’s too late, Iran and N. Korea have already been working together, nurtured by Russia and China for a decade or more.
Now we see that it is not just stunning ignorance by the people in charge of gathering intelligence, or complete lunacy in the Iran Deal negotiations, it also pervades Central Command leadership because Obama was always supporting the wrong rebels in bed with the Brotherhood, Turkey, and Qatar – calling them moderates.
Turkey effectively Islamized the original FSA, and made it a religious issue when originally it was a nationalistic rebellion, all to create chaos and Iran was a big help with their own goals.
Obama ignored the true nationalistic rebels and sent all support to a military room in Turkey called the MOC, managed by Turkish Intel and the MB. The original rebels wanted no part of Obama’s greater cabal, they just wanted Al Assad out; the original idea, long before Obama created a vacuum inside Syria ensuring Jihadist radicals would fill the void. All of this was an attempt to make sure the nationalists would not take over, rather, he wanted the MB to be the victors in the end. But now re-enter Putin.
SUA knows the Syrian chess board well and Putin will certainly not allow this end either. It was SUA’s SOLG group (Syrian Opposition Liaison Group) with MG Vallely that visited the depth of Syria’s killing fields on a fact finding mission. Part of the goals were to identify all of the groups and complexities of the Syrian conflict, vetting those who could be trusted. SOLG then thoroughly briefed the CIA and others in the intelligence community, providing numerous reports; often with no feedback. The result was Obama intentionally backing the wrong people while telling us they were the “moderates,” hiding the truth from the people here paying the bill.
Constant communication is and had been maintained and cultivated for years with the nationalistic, true FSA, but no help ever came for them. When we were told training would begin, we were not told of the ROE being imposed on the trainees. There was little confusion three years ago because the number of radicals was microscopic, now they are the majority.
What is worse according to many indications is the MB is colluding with Turkish Intel and being complicit in assassinating several nationalistic FSA officers. According to reliable sources on the ground, their latest assassination was FSA Col. Jameel Raadoun (one more in a long line of victims). He was commander of the Sokour al-Ghab brigade and was killed in Antakya, Turkey when a bomb ignited under the vehicle he was in. Where was the western media?
While the Obama Administration was busy with Turkey “training” the remaining 60 FSA rebels, it is that same Turkey with Brotherhood support who then surrendered them to Al Nusra. Turkey does not want a Syria supported by the US, the Turks want a renewed ‘Ottoman’ Syria – Obama and his cronies misled the world with MB help and were in turn misled themselves and blew $500 Million in the process!
More hearings need to occur; this time with FSA senior leadership brought in to testify, not lackeys like Gen. Austin nor Obama’s cronies in the Brotherhood – rather, true, original, nationalist FSA senior officers only. The Senate Armed Services Committee needs to hear the truth. The Salim Idriss MB types had their chance and blew it, and Brennan should be held accountable for these many failures. Gen. Lloyd Austin III should resign in disgrace.
If today’s Pentagon is merely going to just do the Commander-in-Chief’s bidding, then each should have had the guts to say goodbye rather than implement such treasonous policies. Surrendering the region to ISIS and the Brotherhood, the two faces of the same coin could only happen because they were not loud enough and forceful enough to push back.
SUA gave the current administration the necessary knowledge, intelligence updates, the keys to the networks. The DoD, the CIA, and others in the administration were shown the path to victory in Syria based on America’s vital national interests, not Qatar’s or Turkey’s. The true FSA were neglected instead. They were battle tested former Syrian military leaders and soldiers who only asked for ammunition, financial aid, and food. They did not need to be trained, they were already winning.
In the first 18 months of the rebellion, they had Assad’s back against the wall before Obama surrendered the FSA to Qatari and Turkish management. They turned a nationalistic struggle into a religious war under the sponsorship of the Brotherhood. With no accountability, the Jihadis got a foothold and now they have Al Assad’s back once again up against the wall and Putin knows this.
Al Assad is again collapsing militarily, under the pressure of the extremists this time, not the true moderates. The result is that Syria is fast becoming another Chechnya and Putin is very worried. Obama sold the Syrian people out due to weakness and alignment with the devil.

NEW YORK – Amid debate over President Obama’s nuclear deal with Iran, two retired military officers contend their accumulation of evidence from open and intelligence sources shows Tehran already has a nuclear-weapons capability.
Retired U.S. Army Maj. Gen. Paul Vallely and U.S. Air Force Lt. Col. Dennis B. Haney assert that since 1979, a cabal of nations has aided and abetted Iran in its efforts to develop a robust nuclear program under the guise of generating a nuclear-energy system.
And they believe the White House is fully aware.
In an interview, Vallely told WND that President Obama, Secretary of State John Kerry and chief White House adviser Valerie Jarrett “are treading on treason under the U.S. Constitution for aiding and abetting Iran, a known enemy of the United States, while throwing Israel, a longtime U.S. ally, to the wolves.”
They charge the cabal is mainly comprised of Russia, China and North Korea, which have worked behind the scenes in collaboration with Iran to put all the parts in place.
Jerome Corsi’s and Michael Evans’ “Showdown with Nuclear Iran” uncovers the apocalyptic beliefs of Iran’s Islamic leaders that help fuel the drive to acquire nuclear weapons
The assistance includes providing the material needed to make a bomb. Vallely and Haney believe Iran can make a bomb now, and a “breakout” nuclear test detonation is imminent.
‘Treading on treason’
Vallely told WND that Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu “knows that Israel has little option but to launch a pre-emptive military strike on Iran, and I suspect Saudi Arabia will assist Israel militarily when the attack occurs.”
“Signing a nuclear agreement legitimizes Iran’s nuclear weapons future, while removing sanctions that gives Iran access to billions of dollars that can be diverted to advancing Iran’s terrorist goals against the United States and Israel,” Vallely said.
“President Obama has given the green light to the potential destruction of Israel by signing this agreement while Iran swears ‘death to Israel,’” Haney told WND.
“President Obama knows Iran has the bomb, and he knows Iran plans a nuclear attack on Israel. Obama has never liked Israel; he does not see Israel in the future of the Middle East that he sees dominated by radical Islam.”
Haney said Obama “is simply covering his tracks with this nuclear agreement with Iran.”
“The point is that Obama already knows Iran has the bomb and the entire negotiation has been nothing more than a charade, a smoke screen to cover up that Iran already has the bomb,” he said.
“The White House and Secretary of State Kerry know that Iran already has nuclear weapons capability and, to protect Obama’s legacy, the White House does not want it known Iran was allowed to develop nuclear weapons on Obama’s watch,” he explained.
“This way, a pathway for Iran to get the bomb has been created and put in place, so when Iran finally announces it has a nuclear weapon, Obama can argue that Iran simply got the bomb quicker than anybody anticipated, but not in violation of the agreement.”
He declared: “Iran is a nuclear weapons power now!”
In a joint statement, Vallely and Haney say an accumulation of available evidence shows a coalition of Russia, China and North Korea have assisted Iran since 1979 in achieving a nuclear weapon, despite sanctions, under the guise of a domestic nuclear energy program.
Vallely explained to WND that he and Haney have taken a systematic approach to evaluating each component needed to deliver a nuclear weapon, from the development and testing of a ballistic missile system, to the design of a nuclear weapons warhead, to the development of the weapons-grade uranium needed to produce a bomb.
“To come to our conclusion that Iran is a nuclear weapons power right now, we supplemented publicly available research, plus information from intelligence sources, including Iranian resistance groups such as the National Council of Resistance of IRAN, NCRI,” Vallely explained. “With the assistance of Russia, China and North Korea, Iran has developed and tested every component needed to develop and deliver a nuclear weapon against Israel.”
WND reported in February that the NCRI, in a Washington, D.C., press conference, added to a series of disclosures it made regarding Iran’s secret nuclear weapons program more than a decade ago. NCRI has claimed Tehran is operating a secret uranium-enrichment site northeast of the capital city that was not disclosed during the recent negotiations to the United States or to the United Nations International Atomic Energy Agency, IAEA.
Vallely and Haney made clear in their statement their conclusion that Iran will soon detonate its first nuclear device.
“Iranian government observers, research scientists and senior military officials have been on-site in North Korea for all their tests of nuclear component systems,” they said. “In essence, Iran has had the benefit of North Korea doing their development and testing for them.”
They said Russia, China and North Korea “always had the latitude and time to develop and test warhead design, fissionable material and detonation testing.”
“Iran participated in most all of the scheduled testing onsite.”
Vallely and Haney said the “release of up to $150 billion in Iranian assets, as a part of the sanctions against Iran, guarantees Iran further funding their nuclear weapons program and their terrorist proxies, Hezbollah and Hamas and others to include Assad of Syria.”
‘Ties to Iran’
Vallely and Haney combine their analysis of Iran’s nuclear weapons capabilities with an argument that Obama, Kerry and Jarrett have close ties to Iran that influence their political judgment.
All three allowed the United States to sign a nuclear weapons agreement with Iran knowing Tehran could develop a nuclear weapon today and realizing that an atomic Iran would be an existential threat to Israel, the retired officers said.
“Barack Hussein Obama, raised and schooled in Islam, mentored by American Communist Party member Frank Marshall Davis, with his primary adviser being Iranian-born Valerie Jarrett, has crafted a plan that guarantees Iran will have a nuclear weapon,” they said.
“The copy of the agreement handed out in English for the American delegation did not replicate the copy handed out in Farsi for the Iranians. The American delegation did not bring this up,” Vallely and Haney said.
“The Iranian delegation read both the English and Farsi-worded agreements, and declared that while they agreed with the one in Farsi, the one in English was not the same and was in no way acceptable to them.
“Prime negotiator John Forbes Kerry, himself a communist sympathizer during the Vietnam War, came out this past May with the admission that he has a daughter who married an Iranian-American who has extensive family ties to Iran,” they noted.
In 2009, Kerry’s daughter, Vanessa Bradford Kerry, married a Los Angeles-based Iranian-American physician, Dr. Brian (Behrooz) ValaNahad, who was born in New York, educated at UCLA, attended medical school at Yale and completed his internship and neurosurgery residence at the Massachusetts General Hospital.
The Nemazee connection
WND has reported the ties between American–Iranian Hassan Nemazee and John Kerry and Hillary Clinton.
Nemazee, prominent in Democratic Party fundraising since Bill Clinton’s second term in the White House, is an American-Iranian now serving time in federal prison for criminal bank fraud. Nemazee’s family fortune in Iran traces back to the Iranian opium shipping trade with China that began in the mid-1800s.
Nemazee’s credentials in raising money for Democratic Party presidential hopefuls is impressive. In 2004, he served as Kerry’s presidential campaign fundraising chairman in New York, and in 2008, he served prominently as one of Hillary Clinton’s most successful national presidential campaign fundraising chairmen.
Coincidentally, Jarrett was born in Shiraz, Fars Province, Iran, in Nemazee Hospital, named after Hassan Nemazee’s father, who had the distinction of transitioning the Nemazee family opium trade with the Far East into the 20th century.
‘Let’s provide Iran nuclear fuel’
WND reported that during his first presidential debate with President George W. Bush in 2004, Kerry, then the Democratic Party’s presidential nominee, argued that the U.S. should provide nuclear fuel to Iran. Kerry said the U.S. should trust Tehran, as had President Clinton with North Korea, that the Iranians would not use the fuel to make a bomb.
In the early 1970s, Pyongyang had begun to acquire nuclear fuel and plutonium processing technology from the Soviet Union to expand North Korea’s IRT-2000 research reactor that was gradually diverted to nuclear weapons development.
Then, in October 1994, former President Jimmy Carter announced from Pyongyang that Kim Il-sung had accepted the broad deal later formalized as the “Agreed Framework.” Within less than a decade, North Korea withdrew from the Nonproliferation Treaty and prohibited IAEA inspectors to actively monitor Pyongyang for nuclear weapons activities.
Vallely and Haney, both members of the independent Citizens’ Commission on Benghazi, made clear they are speaking for themselves regarding Iran and not on behalf of the commission.

Since 1979, a cabal of nations has aided and abetted Iran in its efforts to develop a robust nuclear program under the guise of generating a nuclear energy system. This cabal is mainly comprised of Russia, China, and North Korea. Since sanctions began being placed on Iran in 1979, with more added since, Iran still had enough free reign to develop its capabilities despite the sanctions regime because of this cabal. All the moving parts are in place, the material is there, and this means they are already nuclear – “break out” is imminent now.
During this period, North Korea had evaded sanctions, and like Iran, lied, cheated, and broke virtually every agreement it ever signed with the United Nations. Now North Korea is a nuclear weapons power, and we believe Iran has already done the same. Each had created hidden facilities but only North Korea has actually tested weapons fully. Because Iran has to date only detonated trigger devices that does not mean the Mullahs do not have weapons capability now because they certainly have enough material.
Both Iran and North Korea are also fast approaching inter-continental missile capability, and Iranian government observers, research scientists, and senior military officials have been on-site in North Korea for the testing of its systems. In essence, Iran has had the benefit of having North Korea essentially do their development and testing for them. Iran has tested their launch systems like the Shahab series of launch and delivery vehicles and the attendant guidance and control systems, and they certainly had fine mentors along the way. The cabal has assisted Iran along all the pathways for acquisition of a nuclear weapon; from system requirements, specifications, prototyping, development, and acquisition. Iran has NEVER had to go it alone.
These are facts. Please feel free to challenge our findings and discuss where you think we have gone wrong.
- The coalition of Russia, China and North Korea have assisted Iran in achieving a nuclear capable weapon. Since the 1979 sanctions have been in place, Iran has had free reign to develop their nuclear weapons program unabated. This weapons program was under the guise of a nuclear energy program for domestic energy production. China and North Korea during this same timeframe developed their nuclear programs, maturing same to include land-based and sea-launch weapons systems, testing their entire launch, delivery and detonation process through actual nuclear detonations.
- Iranian Government observers, research scientists, and senior Military officials have been on-site in North Korea for all their tests of nuclear component systems. In essence, Iran has had the benefit of having
North Korea essentially do their development and testing for them.
- Iran was able to test their launch systems (i.e., the Shahab series of launch and delivery vehicles and the attendant guidance and control systems). Russia, China and North Korea always had the latitude and time to develop and test warhead design, fissionable material and detonation testing. Iran participated onsite in most all of the scheduled testing.
- The coalition of Russia, China and North Korea have assisted Iran along all the pathways for acquisition of a nuclear weapon, from system requirements, specifications, prototyping, development, and acquisition.
Iran has NEVER had to go it alone. The coalition support them 100%. It is now clear that since 2009, the Obama administration has crafted a plan that guarantees Iran will have a nuclear weapon, and the devil is in the details. For instance; the copy of the agreement handed out in English for the American delegation did not fully replicate the copy handed out in Farsi for the Iranians. The American delegation never mentioned this to the West and especially not to the American people nor Congress. The Iranian delegation read both the English and Farsi-worded agreements, and declared that while they agreed with the one in Farsi, the one in English WAS NOT THE SAME, AND WAS IN NO WAY ACCEPTABLE TO THEM.
In addition, there are more devils in the details, and these are in the side agreements between Iran and the IAEA. We now know that one of those arrangements calls for Iran to actually be its own inspecting body. The fox gets to be the hen house security team. With Obama’s statement to Russian President Dimitri Medvedev in 2012, incoming President Vladimir Putin knew he had the green light on a host of issues with the now famous “live mike” incident.
The green light was not just for missile defense, it also applied to all things Iran. We know this because Iranian Quds Force commander Qassem Soleimani was seen in Moscow despite a worldwide travel ban, just prior to Secretary of State John Kerry testifying before Congress on the agreement reached with Iran.
Being proven communist sympathizers, John Kerry, Obama, and his henchwoman, Iranian born Valerie Jarret, it is demonstrable that their plan has always been to aid that cabal. Prime negotiator John Kerry, who has his very own place in Communist Vietnam’s War Memorial with a photo, recently admitted that his daughter married an Iranian-American who has extensive family ties to Iran. Incidentally, Kerry’s chief counterpart in the nuclear deal negotiations, Mohammad Javad Zarif’s son was the best man.
We remind all that Barack Obama, mentored during his formative years by Frank Marshall Davis, a confirmed member of the American Communist Party, is also demonstrably not only predisposed to support all things Islam, he has a close relationship with the Muslim Brotherhood as has been proven in the “Betrayal Papers” series.
Now that the agreement has become a settled international agreement, where the United States would be going it alone if Congress somehow negates our involvement in it, the world will release of up to $150 Billion in Iranian assets all but guarantees funding for their nuclear weapons program and their terrorist proxies, Hezbollah, and Hamas and others, to include Assad of Syria.
What better way to wipe Israel off the face of the earth than a well-timed and specifically-delivered nuclear weapon? And what better time to “negotiate” a pathway to “achieving” a nuclear weapons capability, than when you already have one? It is important to note as well, that Iran has been designing plans for the United States as well, after all, intercontinental ballistic missiles are not intended for neighboring Israel, they are aimed
at the United States and they have plans for an EMP already drafted.
In January 2014, the Arms Control Association even agreed that “as Iran progresses down a path towards a nuclear-weapons capability, the difficulties in finding a compromise that would protect against a nuclear-armed Iran while being acceptable to the leadership in Tehran have grown.” Obama and Kerry are pushing an agreement upon America that surely many members of Congress have not read, and are not adding to the confidence level needed to ensure Iran does not “go nuclear.”
IT WON’T BE LONG BEFORE IRAN DETONATES ITS FIRST NUCLEAR DEVICE.
In 2015, given that the Iranians have not agreed to any inspection of any facility for many years, and WILL NOT NOW AGREE TO INSPECTION OF NUCLEAR FACILITIES ON MILITARY INSTALLATIONS, the odds that Iran already has a nuclear weapon are really quite high. Why is it acceptable to so many that Iran gets to be its own inspector? The likely answer is, they know Iran already has the capability.
From the Nuclear Threat Initiative (NTI) web site: “Iran acquired the Soviet R-17 (R-300; NATO: Scud-B) from Libya. Tehran has continued to utilize a number of foreign suppliers to develop a missile production infrastructure.
To date, Iran claims to have developed five liquid-propellant ballistic missiles, (the Shahab-1, Shahab-2, Shahab-3, Ghadr-1 and Qiam); the Safir space launch vehicle (SLV); and the solid-propellant Sejjil missile.”
With $150 Billion in assets already flowing their way, they will finalize the first series of deliverable weapons. A first-strike launch against Israel? Support of international radical Islam, the global Caliphate, and terrorism will accelerate worldwide. Nothing will stop Iran and its proxies now if the “Iran Deal” goes forward. The so-called “Iran Deal” is moot at this time and not worth the paper it is written on. The cabal wins!

To all my friends, supporters and all who are Americans First,
We continue to witness America at a crossroads. Our country has been ‘fundamentally changed’ each and every day for the worse by the forces of a weak and corrupt President, the Progressives Socialists, the elites, the entrenched power brokers, the main stream media, and the supporters of our enemies. I cannot stand by idly nor should you. As I stated last year 2015 is a pivotal year for our country and will present challenges and threats that will be unparalleled in our history and could well spell our downfall.
The members of Congress have been marginalized and a partisan Supreme Court. When will they pledge to be “Americans First” for which they were elected over partisan political parties. We must take back our nation; re-establish and restore the Republic and our way of life. We must re-double our efforts now in 2015 to ensure success on the long road back to the ideals our forefathers laid before us. We truly need new leadership in all branches of our government.
We must peer into our souls and find the strength to Stand Up and be Americans first once again, to shun the mechanisms of power and party, and to support leaders who act first as Americans. We must cast aside those who lead only for personal gain, power, and party.
Please join me today and support our efforts at Stand up America (founded in 2005 because we were witnessing the accelerating decline of America; the dismantling of our Constitution, and the destruction of the very fabric of our society).
Our mission has been to educate and inform Americans and others to uncover and expose wrong doing and focus on the ‘Realities’ of the world and help right our ship of state based upon constitution. To do this, I need your help. WE must restore the Republic.
Since Obama was first elected, our diplomatic and military influence, power, reputation is at a new low around the world. The morale and readiness of our Military has now hit dangerous levels. Vladimir Putin, the Mullahs of Iran and the Radical Jihadists of the Islamic State are on the offensive. Iran continues its destiny to be the hegemonic power of the Middle East. Leading from behind is for “losers”. We are at War and must realize that to guide us to new strategies to secure America and its people.
Our National Security team continues to show its ineptness and amateurism across the spectrum of our government. Treason is being conducted at the highest levels of government as we “aid and abet the enemies of the United States. Our Federal government is broken and seems unable to correct itself. Congress and the Courts are negligent as well in the decline of American prestige and respect. I do not want to see one more ounce of precious American blood shed until our national security team is replaced and we have a strategy to WIN and achieve victory against our enemies, foreign and domestic.
With so many scandals now under investigation, the people cannot rely on equal treatment under the law and the specter of tyranny is now more evident than ever. Obama and his minions escape without accountability.
No one will ever trust the IRS, the NSA, the VA, or HHS again to name but a few. IRS must be eliminated and require the Congress to move to a “fair or flat tax. SUA has added significant resources to ensure we stay at the cutting edge of intelligence gathering and analysis, humanitarian efforts both at home and abroad, and we plan to add further quality capabilities and components to our web site, social media, radio and TV to help keep you informed. This has been financially taxing but it has added great value as SUA continues to influence lawmakers and policy makers.
We are thankful for the support we have received from so many generous sources over the years, both in funding and volunteerism, but sadly, our job is far from over and we have much more to do. Please join me today.

MG Paul E. Vallely, US Army (Ret.) Chairman- Stand Up America US and the Glacial Forum and the Legacy National Security Advisory Group.
Original at Stand Up America.
Editor’s Note: Obama and his minions have tried their best, and largely succeeded, to purge the U.S. military of patriotic officers who love this country. As a result, under Obama, America’s best interests are always put last.
This group of retired and decorated officers and experts, led by MG Paul E. Vallely, offers all Presidential candidates advice on forging a national strategy that is in the best interests of America!

Last week, MG Vallely, along with several staff members of Stand Up America US visited Washington, D.C. to attend several events and to launch the Legacy Group, an SUA project.
The events included a full meeting with the entire Legacy Group, the Citizens Commission on Benghazi, an evening with friends hosted by MG Vallely, and a reception hosted by Congressman Ryan Zinke, R-MT. There were several other meetings and interviews.
The Legacy National Security Advisory Group (LNSAG) is set up to advise presidential and congressional members and candidates on national security and military strategy.
LNSAG was created by MG Paul E. Vallely, (US Army, retired) and is populated by former military command and flag staff, special operations leadership, seasoned intelligence community members, former law enforcement, cultural and diplomatic experts, and a network of HUMINT that spans the globe.
As a well-recognized leader with impeccable characteristics and talents, the best and the brightest have gravitated to his side and are unparalleled in their fields and endeavors.
To commemorate the trip, here are several photos capturing the events:

By Paul Vallely (MG, US Army Ret)
I have had the opportunity over the past 12 years to be a member of the Iran Policy Planning Group and have engaged in a positive manner the members of the Iran Opposition who defected from Iran after the Shah fell. My heart and soul yearned for them when the tyrannical government under the ayatollahs would be replaced by a democratic government. But that has never happened. All we have seen is an evil and radical Islamic regime gain in strength over the years and support international terrorism, torture and murder of its own people and others throughout the world. Can you only imagine what chaos and turmoil they will create with an expanded and stronger Armed Forces and with a nuclear capability that can reach any target by air, land and sea launched weapons?
Aiding and abetting an enemy (and Iran is) of the United States is a treasonous offense under the Constitution.
From 2009 to the present, Obama, with the guidance of Valerie Jarrett, has been involved in clandestine negotiations with Iran, the largest state sponsor of terrorism in the world. Americans will recall that on November 4, 1979 Iran “Declared War on the United States” when it invaded the US Embassy in Tehran and took all the Americans in the Embassy as hostages. Iran feared Ronald Reagan and his peace through strength and released our hostages very soon after Reagan was elected. Since then, for over 35 years, Iran has been killing thousands of Americans and expanding its hegemony throughout the Middle East and the world.
For 6 years, while Iran was employing Iranian manufactured Improvised Explosive Devices (IEDs) to kill and maim (for life), thousands of members of the US Armed Forces, Obama has been involved in secret back channel negotiations in Oman, not negotiating to stop Iran from employing Iranian manufactured IEDs to kill members of the US Armed Forces, or in negotiations to prevent Iran from developing nuclear weapons.
For over 3 years, Obama has continued to lie to the American people, by saying first Hillary Clinton and then John Kerry have been engaged in negotiations to prevent Iran from developing nuclear weapons; nothing could be further from the truth. Obama has only been interested in normalizing diplomatic relations with Iran, regardless of the cost to the lives of US military personnel in combat over a 6 year period, regardless whether it resulted in giving Iran nuclear weapons to put atop its intercontinental ballistic missiles.
The treacherous activity with Iran began with Hillary Clinton, and continues with John Kerry. The Obama’s clandestine operations and activities have been covered up for 6 years by the left of center, liberal media establishment, and the members of the US Congress who have been kept informed of those step-by-step negotiations.
Obama chose to decouple his negotiations concerning Iran’s development of nuclear weapons from Iran’s aggressive behavior in the Middle East that was killing members of the US Armed Forces in Iraq and Afghanistan. Obama, Valerie Jarrett, Hillary Clinton, and John Kerry backtracked on virtually every demand that would have curbed Iran’s nuclear weapons development program and on international inspection regime that would have detected Iran’s continued violations of every agreement it ever entered into.
The American people should know that Obama plans to give Iran $150 billion of US taxpayers money (that Iran will use to continue destabilize the Middle East), will lift economic sanctions that were imposed on Iran for going forward in the development of nuclear weapons, will enter into a formal agreement that will permit Iran to develop nuclear weapons, will allow Iran to keep 4 innocent Americans in prison (a US Marine, a Christian pastor, a retired FBI Agent, and a journalist), and for that agreement Obama will get ABSOLUTELY NOTHING!!! I take that back, Iran will be allowed to continue to kill and maim members of the US Armed Forces in Afghanistan with their IEDs.
Iran’s Supreme Leader, Ayatollah Khamenei has been steadfast with his red lines, whereas, Obama made concession after concession on virtually every Iranian demand, such as excluding inspections by the UN’s IAEA inspectors to ensure Iran is not developing of nuclear weapons at military facilities. It really didn’t matter to Obama, since preventing the development of nuclear weapons was never the purpose of the negotiations—the goal of negotiations that began in 2009 has always been to focus on normalizing diplomatic relations with Iran, just like with Cuba,
Obama will soon authorize Iran to finalize their nuclear weapons capability and arsenal, not with an international treaty required by the US Constitution that would require a 2/3rd approval of the US Senate, but by another of his unconstitutional Executive Orders. In doing so, Obama will have initiated a nuclear arms race in the Middle East, may be responsible for forcing Israel to take action in self-defense to strike Iran’s nuclear weapons manufacturing facilities, and his ineptness will probably set the stages for escalating events into the first and second phase of World War III.
In 1815, the European powers met here to establish the post-Napoleonic order and through a balance of power arrangement bring peace to the continent. Obama surely appreciates the historical echo, since 200 years later he, too, means to create a peaceful order in an especially volatile part of the world by balancing the regional powers—Israel, Saudi Arabia, and Iran—to ensure that none of them gets too large a piece of the pie and frightens the others into making war. The Iran nuclear talks are important because Obama, a U.S. diplomat circularly explained here last week, “believes a peaceful Iran could be.??.??. The key to peace.”

A STAND UP AMERICA US PROJECT (original at Stand Up America)
Americans First – MG Paul E. Vallely and others spoke at the Freedom Summit in Lansing, Michigan for MiC-PAC.
There, the General met many conservative women who had enough and wanted to do something immediately about it. At that meeting the General and the women’s group formed the “Women Defending America” Project.
This is the first in the nation group who decided it was time to form ‘platoons’ of conservative women across America, from every state.
It is time to take back the discourse from the left and speak for the millions of women and their families who are largely swamped by liberal talking points.
The folks in Michigan are proud to be the first of these “platoons” and encourage all like-minded individuals to join them, women with the support of the men and families in their lives; fathers, sons, husbands, brothers, and more who support family first and are Americans First.
America is exceptional because those who identify themselves as Americans First, those who believe it is America who has changed the Earth for the better, those who believe in reaping the rewards of their hard work and entrepreneurial spirit, those who fought and died for us, not to conquer, but to free others from tyranny, and those who helped correct what failed, and secured the freedom for all.
The time is now to correct the public record on America First issues, women’s America First issues. It is now time to recover our Representative Constitutional Republic and State’s Rights and to shun those who seek office for greed, avarice, and party first politics. It is our goal to educate the public and speak for our rights, and not to allow others to steal our voices and control the discussion.
It is our goal to correct the record on the history of the rights of all Americans, to correct the untruths, to combat the demagoguery of the left, to hold our press accountable, to hold our elected and appointed officials to their oaths, to right this ship of state, and to set our economic future on the path of prosperity.
It is our goal to reclaim our national security and to support our troops, our veterans, and their families. To do this, we women will unite as one, with the support of the men and our families in our lives; to support those who proclaim and demonstrate that they are Americans First.
