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.

Comments:
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."

Nice to know what a big state sponsor of terror the US is. My role in terrorism almost makes me forget that I finance the murder of children.

I won´t be in the mood to hear about how we are one country for a while.

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.

‘Black Panther’ packed with

Washington Times, by Bradford Richardson    Original Article
Posted By: KarenJ1- 2/21/2018 3:41:33     Post Reply
Marvel Studios‘ “Black Panther” is being hailed as the most diverse superhero movie in Hollywood history, but it’s not diverse enough for some progressives who want to know: Where are all the gay characters? The latest comic-book-to-film adaptation checked off a number of identity boxes with its almost exclusively black cast and cohort of strong female characters. But filmmakers ditched a lesbian romance subplot from the original comic books, prompting an outcry from the LGBT community. Actress Florence Kasumba stoked the flames of outrage when she revealed that scenes of lesbian flirtation filmed during production were left on the cutting-room floor. “The final

A Florida state lawmaker’s aide was fired late Tuesday, hours after he claimed two survivors of last week’s school shooting in Parkland, Fla., who had appeared on television were actors. Benjamin Kelly, an aide to state Rep. Shawn Harrison (R), emailed a Tampa Bay Times reporter after students Emma Gonzalez and David Hogg appeared on CNN to call for legislation to curb gun violence. According to Tampa Bay Times reporter Alex Leary, the staffer emailed him, saying, "Both kids in the picture are not students here but actors that travel to various crisis when they happen." The comments drew condemnation from Sen. Marco

What is the FBI hiding in

As the James Comey saga continues to unfold, the James Comey legend continues to unravel. The more we learn about his involvement in the deep state’s illicit targeting of President Trump, the more reason the American people have to question both his motives and his management as director of the FBI, the now-disgraced agency he headed before Trump fired him on May 9, 2017. Comey has left a trail of suspicious activities in his wake. Comey now looms large over a burgeoning constitutional crisis that could soon overshadow Watergate at its worst. To deepen the crisis even further, it now

Mark Janus has worked for years as an Illinois state employee, and pays about $550 annually to the powerful public-sector union known as AFSCME. While not a member of the union, he is required under state law to hand over a weekly portion of his paycheck – which he says is a violation of his constitutional rights. "I work for Health and Family Services, and I´m forced to pay money to a union that then supports political causes that I don´t agree with," Janus told Fox News.

Rep. Adam Schiff, the top Democrat on the House Intelligence Committee, said Thursday he aims to have a memo written by Democrats on the panel released this week, after President Trump declined to release it earlier in the month. Democrats say their memo was written as a rebuttal to provide greater context to a Republican memo that was released earlier this month, which outlines abuses by the FBI and the Justice Department against the Trump campaign. "I actually hope that we´ll do that in the next few days,” Schiff, a Democrat from California, said at an event Tuesday night called "Investigating

Outspoken leftist and "Grey´s Anatomy" star Ellen Pompeo challenged Fox News host Laura Ingraham, whom she referred to as a "b****", to a physical fight on Friday. For real. "Someone tell this b**** to meet me outside," wrote Pompeo, referring to Ingraham, via Twitter. "Im [sic] so not in the mood for playing nice or polite this week."

Chris Hughes, a co-founder of Facebook and chair of the Economic Security Project, has a proposal to attack the problem of rising income inequality through a basic income, a system of wealth distribution in which people receive a standard salary just for being alive. And he wants to pay for it by raising taxes on the one percent.

Former New York Times Executive Editor Jill Abramson served only three years in that role; she was reportedly fired in 2014 for an ill-founded complaint about her compensation and for her "brusque" workplace manner. Her editorial competence was not questioned, however. In the era of #MeToo equalizing the perpetrators of rape with those of inadvertent microaggressions, perhaps no one remains in elite New York media qualified to make such a judgment, anyway. This week, Abramson´s reputation seemingly landed her a 4,000-word New York magazine cover story, which resurrects the sexual harassment complaints against Justice Clarence Thomas:

GOP Utah Senate candidate Mitt Romney is changing his tune on President Donald Trump from where he was one year ago. Trump endorsed Romney late Monday evening, giving the former failed presidential candidate “full support and endorsement.” Romney responded almost immediately, thanking the president for his kind words and for backing him the upcoming election. “Thank you Mr. President for the support. I hope that over the course of the campaign I also earn the support and endorsement of the people of Utah,” Romney tweeted late Monday evening. Romney’s statement Monday is strikingly different from ones he has previously made

Liberals get control of the Supreme Court and ignore the Second Amendment; Washington makes gun ownership illegal; almost all the guns come pouring in or are destroyed; a few hapless Jim Bobs who won’t get in line get shot up by the cops and then the government is free to do anything it wants and if people don’t like it, well, what are they going to do about it without guns?

President Trump said Tuesday he has asked the Justice Department to regulate "bump stocks," the firearms accessory that can be used to make semi-automatic weapons fire at a rate similar to automatic weapons. Trump´s move came less than a week after the Florida school shooting that left 17 dead, and several weeks after a shooter in Las Vegas used bump stocks to killed dozens of people. "Just a few moments ago, I signed a memorandum directing the Attorney General to propose regulations to ban all devices that turn legal weapons into machine guns," Trump said.
