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 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.

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." (Snip) The actress was reacting to a video clip, which she quote-tweeted, of Ingraham suggesting NBA star LeBron James quit the political activism and "shut up and dribble" — a reference to her 15-year-old book titled "Shut Up & Sing." Pompeo continued the taunting,

Conservative columnist Charles Krauthammer said in a statement read on Fox News on Tuesday that he is still recovering from surgery and that his progress is moving "steadily slower" than he would like. Still, he expressed optimism about an eventual return to TV. "Special Report" anchor Bret Baier shared the brief update on Krauthammer on his evening show, where Krauthammer has long been a panelist. Baier, who said he constantly keeps in contact with Krauthammer, said that of all the questions he gets from viewers on social media, Krauthammer´s status tops the list.

Movie director, producer, and screenwriter Steven Spielberg and his wife, actress Kate Capshaw, have joined other high-profile celebrities in donating to the student-led March For Our Lives rally to advocate stricter gun control measures following the Florida high school shooting last week. “The young students in Florida and now across the country are already demonstrating their leadership with a confidence and maturity that belies their ages,” the couple said in a statement, according to Deadline. “Kate and I applaud their efforts to take a stand for the benefit of this and future generations.

"All I could think of was my family," Lauren Hogg told ABC News´ "This Week" Co-Anchor Martha Raddatz on Sunday.

Lacking any evidence of collusion between President Trump and the Russian operatives who meddled in the 2016 campaign, Democrats are now attempting to re-define “collusion” in order to declare Trump guilty of it. (Snip) Now, with no evidence of such collusion between the Trump campaign and the Russians, leading Democrats are trying to redefine “collusion” to mean public statements Trump made on the campaign trail and conversations then-Trump adviser Michael Flynn held with Russian officials during the post-election transition period.

Rep. Lee Zeldin (R., N.Y.) on Tuesday introduced legislation to revoke the citizenship of naturalized immigrants who are involved in gang-related crimes. The Protecting Our Communities from Gang Violence Act would allow the U.S. government to revoke the citizenship of individuals who came to the country as immigrants and got involved in gang activity either prior to or within 10 years of becoming a naturalized citizen. The act seems to be the direct result of an increase in the numbers of crimes being committed by MS-13 gang members in Zeldin´s congressional district and the state of New York as a whole.

In the first sign that last week’s Florida high school shooting hasn’t changed the gun control debate yet, the state’s legislature Tuesday overwhelming voted against a plan to ban assault weapons. With students from Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in the gallery, the Florida House voted 36-71 against a motion to take up a ban on assault weapons such as the AR-15 rifle allegedly used by Nikolas Cruz to kill 17 people at the school. (Snip) It also would have addressed high capacity rifle magazines, those beyond the standard 10-bullet magazines that typically come with the gun, the most popular

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.

Millions of dollars have poured in to GoFundMe campaigns for victims of the Stoneman Douglas shooting, and nearly a million dollars more has been raised for March for Our Lives, an event being organized by survivors that is set for March 24 in Washington D.C., with related rallies to take place around the country. The march received an additional boost Tuesday when Amal and George Clooney announced they would donate $500,000 to the effort.

It was ruled constitutional in 2013 — but then unconstitutional in 2018. Yet it, the Pennsylvania congressional districts map, hasn’t changed in the last five years. Nor has the Keystone State’s constitution. What’s different is Pennsylvania´s Supreme Court; it now has five more Democrats and has decreed that the judges’ own redistricting map, which gives a relative advantage to Democrats, must be implemented. As Politico reported, “Democrats’ hopes of winning the House this fall got a boost Monday with the release of a new congressional-district map in Pennsylvania that could help the party pick up several seats in the battleground

Two newly minted gun control activists from Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida are defending the FBI, while demanding that NRA "child murderers" dismantle and disband. And they have declined an invitation to discuss their concerns with President Donald Trump, whom they call "disgusting."

Students are in the middle of a lie-in protest outside the White House over gun laws just days after 17 people were killed in the Florida high school shooting massacre. Groups of students from Washington DC staged the protest on Monday on a road leading to the White House. They took turns lying on the road for three minutes - the same amount of time 19-year-old Nikolas Cruz went on a firing spree at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School last week. Other students stood by holding signs that read ´Am I next?´ and ´Is Congress or the NRA making our

An activist group has launched a voter registration effort aimed at black voters at screenings of the “Black Panther” movie nationwide. Members of the Electoral Justice Project, an offshoot of the Movement for Black Lives, are seeking to motivate black voters and increase political engagement with the #WakandaTheVote campaign, the website Blavity reported. Wakanda is the fictional African nation featured in the long-anticipated Marvel film “Black Panther.” Kayla Reed, Jessica Byrd and Rukia Lumumba founded the Electoral Justice Project last year, and told Blavity that the movement has been effective “because we meet our communities where they are, whether that´s

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:

He has no idea how to make a majority of voters choose him. Mitt’s back. The former governor of Massachusetts and occasional native son of Michigan has a new persona: Mr. Utah. He’s going to bring Utah conservatism to the whole Republican party and to the country at large. Wholesome, efficient, industrious, faithful. “Utah has a lot to teach the politicians in Washington,” he says in announcing his Senate campaign. Maybe. There’s always been something unstable about Mitt Romney’s political identity.

Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s indictment Friday of a Russian “troll farm” and 13 foreign nationals leaves little doubt Russia was working to undermine US democracy. But the filing also knocks the teeth out of the “collusion” claim. That is, the charges are a strong sign that there’s nothing to Democrats’ charge that Team Trump worked with Russia to steal the 2016 election. Mueller confirms that the trolling entity, the Internet Research Agency, used fake accounts on Facebook and Twitter to spread disinformation, sway public opinion and promote rallies. The “strategic goal” was “to sow discord in the US political system.” Indeed, IRA began

But how would she know much about the realities of open borders, given her palatial retreat in Northern California and multi-millionaire lifestyle that allows wealthy progressives like herself to be exempt from the consequences of her own hectoring? In the end, the House minority leader was reduced to some adolescent racialist patter about her grandson wishing to look more like his Mexican-American friend.
