Obama extends national emergency against Iran

US President Barack Obama has extended the country’s national emergency with respect to Iran despite last year’s nuclear agreement with Tehran and the P5+1 to lift sanctions.

In a letter sent to Congress on Thursday, Obama told lawmakers that US relations with Iran have not returned to normal, and that it’s necessary to maintain the status quo.

“Our relations with Iran have not yet returned to normal, and the process of implementing the agreements with Iran, dated Jan. 19, 1981, is still under way,” Obama wrote in the letter. “For this reason, I have determined that it is necessary to continue the national emergency … with respect to Iran.”

“The national emergency with respect to Iran that was declared in Executive Order 12170 of November 14, 1979, is to continue in effect beyond November 14, 2016,” he wrote.

The executive order means non-nuclear US sanctions against Iran will remain in effect for at least another year.

      The entire evil government knows about Planet X and they spray everybody like bugs with toxic chemtrails for a decade to hide it. They are also planning on killing 90% of Americans in WW3 and it will happen. They ALL belong at the end of ropes for treason and genocide and so do the evil bastard aliens that control this prison planet of slave sheeple!

  • RenegadeProphet

    Iran will be the “reason” that America is annihilated but then it has been planned by the “gods” for centuries. It will happen like this:
    The entire government are evil treasonous criminals! The day of the next
    false flag using the nuke the evil government stole in 2007 and blamed
    on Iran, America will be annihilated by Russia, China and the SCO. This
    is the war of Armageddon and you can know it is now because of Planet X
    and the toxic chemtrails that hide it every day globally for the past
    decade. Planet X will end the war when it rips the earth apart again but
    by then 90% of Americans will be dead already. All planned by your evil
    government!
