Obama doesn’t want the American people to know the extent to which he has enabled and empowered the enemy. And the enemedia dutifully covers for him like the man with the shovel following behind the circus elephant.

“White House Making Up Iran Data?,” by Michael Rubin, Commentary, March 6, 2016:

Colin Kahl, Vice President Joseph Biden’s National Security Advisor, reportedly told a conference at the RAND Corporation that the $100 billion released to Iran under the terms of the Comprehensive Joint Plan of Action (JCPOA) were “being used for domestic investment, to the dismay of [Qods Force chief] Qassem Soleimani.” Really?

It would be useful for Kahl and the White House to provide details — perhaps even a balance sheet — to justify that statement because, frankly, it appears to be based more on wishful thinking than reality. Reporting in the Iranian press paints a far different picture:

—Over the past few months, for example, the Gen. Hassan Shah-Safi, the head of the Islamic Republic’s air force, has traveled to Beijing to discuss with his Chinese counterpart about how to upgrade Iran’s air force with the latest Chinese jet fighters.
—Nor does it seem that Qassem Soleimani is all that dismayed at the new drones Iran has shipped to Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps. Just last week, the Iranian press announced the start of Iranian drone operations around the Syrian city of Aleppo.

—Iran has also undertaken a massive, multibillion-dollar military shopping spree in Moscow.
—Then, of course, the money to hold recruitment drives to sign up Iranian students to ‘volunteer’ in Syria has to come from somewhere. Funny how Iran stepped up such activities after it received its cash rather than before.

In addition to the $100 billion Iran receives in unfrozen assets, of course, there’s also the fact that the new foreign investment Tehran now attracts goes disproportionately into the coffers of the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps….

    and still: congress does nothing in fear of loosing the black vote
    disgusting breed of politicians !

    • The origional roger

      Yes, they are disgusting, but I’m not sure what this so called deal has to do with the black vote, one that anyone could predict is that the Iranians would get their nukes no matter what.

  • Jeff Benton

    Pretty much the same thing Clinton did with North Korea before Clinton gave North Korea Nukes with a “Great Deal”…
    It’s amazing how fast peeps forget just who and what Democrats stand for…
    If Panama had wanted nukes back in Jimmy Carters days, I tell you the truth, they would have gotten em for sure along with the canal…
    It’s the same ol same ol…
    Over and over and over…
    Now the next President is going to have to deal with North Korea’s Nukes, AND Iranian Nukes… All aimed at the good ol USA courtesy of the Democrat party of America…
    Thanks Clinton, Thanks Obama… And Thanks Congress…
    Job well done on the treasonous act of supplying our enemies with the means to destroy the USA, and the rest of the world to boot…

      Jeff:
      There never was a ‘deal’ with Iran. It was never signed by ANY of the participating countries, never agreed to by the US congress, and still opposed by the majority of Americans.

      On July 14, 2015, Obama proclaimed he “had a deal”, but to this day he has no signatures on it. Four days later, July 20, 2015, the UN Security Council passed a resolution that attached the unsigned JCPOA deal to the resolution. The UN resolution forbids the sale of weapons or military materials of any kind to Iran for the next 5 years. Since Iran got their money, they have been buying billions in weapons from Russia.

      Obama ignored this obvious breach of the deal, and so did the UN. There is no deal, just a few vague ideas in Obama’s head.

      UN Security Council Resolution 2231

    No, Iran is using the money for “freedom fighting.”

    • Dr. Doomsday

      Oh you are so right. Every non white anti-American cause on the rock is “freedom fighters” to the left.

      • DemocracyRules

        I agree. This left-wing “freedom fighter” baloney shows how strong a communist Obama actually is. Most center-left Americans don’t believe that the, “running dog, fat-cat, greedy capitalist bourgeoisie are ripping off and enslaving the third world.” That stuff is from the Communist Manifesto (1848). People like Obama and Bill Ayers are very unusual in their strong communist beliefs.

        The average center-left American doesn’t believe all that baloney. They just want better health care, equal treatment for blacks, and slightly fewer wars.

  • Mahou Shoujo

    Why does anyone pay any attention to the taqiyya that fatwas from the white mosque are dripping with? The democrat administration is a series of lies, incompetency, bigotry and outright stupidity. That is well known, validated daily.

    • DemocracyRules

      Mahou:
      Hi Again. I think the conservatives have a serious image problem. Most lefties think we are either a bunch of knuckle-draggers, or rich corporate fat-cats. Lately I’ve been reading and posting on the House Speaker’s website (Paul Ryan). He really seems to live in a completely different world, where ‘new initiatives’, ‘constitution committees’ and passing more bills will fix the problems. He is strictly a top-down thinker. He is going to “do more to control the problems.”

      Paul Ryan seems to think ‘bottom-up governance’ is a quirky new idea. Americans have been doing bottom-up governance since Jamestown. And it works very well. Local groups figure out what’s wrong locally, and fix it locally. If governments let them, they would organize locally to keep their eyes on any mosques that were a problem, and do something if any signs of violent intent appeared.

      Meanwhile, Paul Ryan does nothing while the FBI and Homeland security issue “all points bulletins” that authorities should be on the look-out for anyone displaying a “Don’t Tread On Me” flag. This is a good example of how top-down governance has gotten out of control.

      • Mahou Shoujo

        “Top down” is shari’a, trickle down, think of the men’s washroom with some guy urinating on the pisshole peppermint. The only way a law is obeyed and enforceable is when it is accepted from the bottom to the top. Imposition demands submission, democrats and muslims have the same retarded mindset.

      • Dorrie

        You’re absolutely right. The GOPe has weakened the party until most real Conservatives are absolutely disgusted with it. That’s what made it ripe for the picking by Trump who decided to hijack it. He’s a Progressive Liberal in Republican DRAG; a fool fooling fools!

    obama is the perfect muslim: First and foremost, always and above all the VICTIM.
    obama “wishes” he would have learned that Netanyahu was canceling his meeting through direct communications instead of through the media.
    obama, Netanyahu owes you exactly one bag of fresh, stinking dog sh*t.
    Nothing more, nothing less.
    I’m just happy that the Israeli PM won’t have to endure yet another face-to-face encounter with the whiny, rude, lying, cheating, disgraceful monkey-snake.

    This carack osama is going to do the most damage to America before he is booted out of office. I don’t know why he hasn’t been impeached by now. Clinton only scewed his secretary but this turd osama has been srewing Americans for 7 years.

    Obama Has Muzzled the Iranian Nuke Watchdog

    The nuclear watchdog is called the International Atomic Energy Agency, or IAEA. They have never been known for high-quality work. E.g. “Saddam has 500 tons of semi-refined yellow-cake uranium, and enough highly enriched uranium to make about two bombs, but it’s OK, we put a padlock on it.”

    Now Obama has made them stop talking about Iran’s nukes.

    “Yukiya Amano, the IAEA’s chief, disclosed on Monday that his agency is no longer permitted to release details about Iran’s nuclear program and compliance with the deal [JCPOA]. The limited public reporting is a byproduct of the nuclear agreement, according to Amano.” ~ Washington Free Beacon

    They claim they are prohibited by the nuclear agreement from publicly reporting on potential violations by Iran. (I can’t find that in the JCPOA.)

    On Tuesday, a State Department official told the Free Beacon that the IAEA’s reports would continue to provide a complete picture of Iran’s nuclear program. But they wouldn’t say if the public can see it.

    The first IAEA report to appear since the JCPOA was ‘implemented’ in Jan, 2016, seems to be lack detail and be incomplete. “We expect this professional level of reporting to continue in the future,” the State Department official said.

    She didn’t mention Iran’s continuing work on plutonium bomb triggers. I guess she was gagged too. But this former employee of IAEA is worried about those plutonium bomb triggers, and says,
    “Support for Iran nuclear deal is dangerous”

    • The origional roger

      The dems believe because they want to, the whole diplomacy angle with the Iranians is a mistake, the Iranians are completely untrustworthy and treacherous and will seek to hide their activities and push the boundaries of any agreement or simply break them.
      The only workable system of dealing with the administration in Iran is with brute force via the threat of imminent invasion, the only problem with this is the hopeless lack of resolute mindedness in the US and the present moral decay in the military, which has been denied relevance by the left .

    • The origional roger

      Yes, interesting but not one bit surprising.
      “If our interests are not met under the nuclear deal, there will be no reason for us to continue,” Abbas Araqchi, Iran’s deputy foreign minister, warned during remarks delivered to a group of Iranian officials.
      This was always going to be the case, they were just buying time and leverage.

      Muzzled the iaea, and scrubbed the fbi and cia… how long before another major attack here??

      • notme123

        there’s no need for an attack. they are taking over from within.

      • DemocracyRules

        joe1429
        I think Obama IS THE THIRD major attack since 9/11. There were two big US attacks since 9/11. The second was a massive international economic meltdown that was triggered on Sept 11, 2008. It was the “October surprise” of that election cycle, and it helped sweep Obama to power. The facts about this are well-documented, but the MSM works hard to conceal them.

        On the morning of Sept 11, 2008, the US federal currency trading window opened normally, but and within a short time, massive automated currency trades began, which worked so quickly that currency reserves could not keep up. Hundreds of billions were being traded, and as reserves dried, up a type of “run on the bank” began. By about noon that day, the Feds closed the currency trading window. Had they continued, the entire US financial system could have gone bankrupt within 24 hours.

        Congress and President Bush met in secret on Sept 15 to discuss the problem, and were told to keep it secret. Shortly thereafter, Bush pumped 700 billion int the US economy to restore financial confidence. Many financial institutions that were in trouble were rescued, ad a few went bankrupt.

        We are still recovering economically from that day, and almost every country on earth suffered economic problems for years afterward.

        The US economy was sensitive because the US banks had accumulated massive debt, from the Democrats’ “free houses” scam. Millions of poor US families were cajoled into buying unaffordable houses, with mortgages that sometimes exceeded 100% of the value of the house. The banks were bullied into “rescuing the poor [blacks]”, and promised that their liabilities would be protected by the US government. (Nothing in writing, just promises.) Since few of the poor could pya their mortgages costs, the banks had massive bad loans outstanding, and the banks looked like they could crash.

        And then Sept 11, 2008 hit, with investors thinking that the US banking system could not cover it’s debts, because of the massive free houses scam. The investors would be left holding valueless investments.

        And then of course, this helped Obama sweep to power, and he has continued to dismember the US ever since.

      Democaracy rules. you got it 100% right. The demorats, Created the housing scam, by pressuring the banks to lend to minorities, who couldnt afford the mortgages, than turn around and blame bush, when the banks collapse, bc the minorities couldnt pay it back

      • DemocracyRules

        joe1429:
        Thanks for your reply. For some reason, very few people really know the truth about what happened. And it is vitally important to know more about it. The key question is who started the ‘run on the banks’ at the currency trading window? It was mostly likely some members of the Islamist-Leftist alliance. They had the motivation, the means, and opportunity to do it. Of course the Feds would know who made those trades.

        Paradoxically, the economic crisis that followed had devastating effects on the Russian and Arab economies. Since they are still recovering from that, they are not likely to do it again. Only commies and Islamists are unaware that the world economies are interlinked and interdependent. Karl Marx was a very smart guy, but he did not understand how capitalism works.
