Obama-era cash traced
to Iran-backed terrorists

Washington Times, by Bill Gertz

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 2/9/2018 12:21:44 PM

The U.S. government has traced some of the $1.7 billion released to Iran by the Obama administration to Iranian-backed terrorists in the two years since the cash was transferred. According to knowledgeable sources, Iran has used the funds to pay its main proxy, the Lebanon-based terrorist group Hezbollah, along with the Quds Force, Iran’s main foreign intelligence and covert action arm and element of the Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps. The U.S. money supplied to Iran as part of an arms settlement dating back to the 1970s also has been traced to Iran’s backing of Houthi rebels seeking to take power in Yemen.

How shocking. s/o All the leaders in Iran are terrorists and enemies of this country, not just Hezbollah. And the Democrats and the media constantly accuse Trump of treason? Isn´t this treason when you support enemies of our country?? I doubt that we will ever know the extent of the damage Obama did to our country because of this criminal behavior. He is one evil man who continues to remain untouched because the media and the Democrats protect him. We are really in a sorry state in this country.

No surprise here.
It has been long known (by LDotters, at least) that former Pres Obama was a big fan of Islam and wanted to help them in any way possible. If this meant also doing bodily harm to Jews, all the better.
I have been mocked and derided for this opinion. But my opinion still stands.
That our bribe money went to Hezbollah is no surprise. That U S weapons also went to Hezbollah would also not surprise me.
But the truth will eventually come out.

#1 Amen! No different than the drone that suspiciously landed in Iran and obama wouldn´t let Special Forces or Special Ops go get nor would he let it be destroyed by our air power. So Iran got one of our drones and all of its technology solely because of obama. Treasonous SOB!

Notice how something this serious and such strong substantiation of what many warned would happen is greeted with an apathetic shrug by most media, and barely a peep out of Congress.

I think we´re nearly submerged in --if i may borrow from Hannah Arendt-- a quicksand of the "banality of evil."

I would not doubt there was a "special payment" made to some Cayman Island account for a few of those who worked on the release of the Iranian cash.

And, I´ll bet more than a few folks were involved in helping those European companies gain the contracts with Iran, after the cash was un-frozen.

Back in early December, Trump fans started throwing stuff at me for suggesting that we await more information about FBI agent Peter Strzok before demanding that he be drawn and quartered. Yes, it was clear that Strzok engaged in serious misconduct: The married G-man’s reported extramarital affair with his married FBI colleague Lisa Page was scandalous not only for the obvious reasons but as potential blackmail material against counterintelligence agents. Plus, Strzok appears to have been the main investigator in the Hillary Clinton emails case that the FBI and Justice Department bent over backwards not to prosecute; and there is

Have you ever wondered why CNN’s on so many airport TVs? So has Tucker Carlson, and this very serious issue is what he ended his show with tonight in the name of trolling a competitor. Carlson apparently really, really wants to know why, saying it made sense when they had a “centrist reputation” (there was a time, you may remember, when Carlson actually was on CNN) but not when they’ve gone “so far to the left.” And Carlson actually looked into the reason why CNN is in so many airports. You can watch above, via Fox News.

Univision anchor Jorge Ramos, known for his advocacy of illegal aliens, is accusing Republicans of wanting to "change the essence of America" and seriously wondered whether the GOP wants to "make America white again." In an interview with Anderson Cooper on CNN, Ramos also said that chain migration leads to a "tolerant, diverse, multiracial and multicultural country." He said that the Republicans are not proposing immigration reform, but rather "immigration revenge."

Monday morning, the Smithsonian´s National Portrait Gallery unveiled their official portraits of former President Barack Obama and his wife, Michelle. And while both portraits are the work of avant garde contemporary artists, in this case they might be just a touch too avant garde. Barack Obama´s portrait was done by pop artist Kehinde Wiley, who is well known for his hyper-realistic portraits of African American men and women, often done in the style of the Old Masters or with backgrounds familiar to fans of classical, "old world" European art.

I´m gonna go out on a limb here: I generally like the Obama official portrait. It´s an odd style, but it expresses him and what´s more, it reflects the art of his era. (snip) Here´s the problem: It´s not drawn very well. The work shows a lack of skill in the basic rendering of an image. The hands are out of proportion in size, even placed in the foreground, overly big. One might be able to write that off as intentional.

CNN ran an absurd story Saturday afternoon, seemingly praising the sister of one the world’s most evil dictators for “stealing the show” at the 2018 Winter Olympics in PyeongChang, South Korea. The piece starts off, saying, “If ´diplomatic dance´ were an event at the Winter Olympics, Kim Jong Un´s younger sister would be favored to win gold.” Hailing Kim Yo Jong as North Korea’s “answer” to Ivanka Trump, CNN claims that “with a smile, a handshake and a warm message in South Korea's presidential guest book, Kim Yo Jong has struck a chord with the public just one day into the PyeongChang Games.”
