Obama Shovels Money at Iran as He Removes Obstacles to Nukes

Since 1979, the most aggressive enemy of the USA has been Iran under the control of an ambitious Islamist regime that has used terrorist cat’s paws to kill Americans throughout the Middle East and that is sworn to our national destruction. When it looked like this regime would finally be overthrown by the people it oppresses, Obama conspicuously had not a word of support for the rebellion, which was soon crushed. In jarring contrast, he enthusiastically supported “Arab spring” rebellions that took down friendly (Egypt) or effectively neutral (Libya) governments, creating opportunities for the sort of hostile Islamists who run Iran. Now he has been helping Iran to acquire nuclear weapons by moving obstacles out of its way. In case it was not yet obvious whose side Obama is on, this should clear things up:

The Obama administration on Wednesday paid $490 million in cash assets to Iran and will have released a total of $11.9 billion to the Islamic Republic by the time nuclear talks are scheduled to end in June, according to figures provided by the State Department.

Today’s $490 million release, the third such payment of this amount since Dec. 10, was agreed to by the Obama administration under the parameters of another extension in negotiations over Tehran’s contested nuclear program that was inked in November.

Money is the only reason the mullahs are willing to go through the charade of negotiating with Obama, whom they openly despise. Only a total fool would imagine they have any intention of foregoing the continued development of nuclear weapons with which to kill American civilians.

These cash payments by the United States have been made with no strings attached, prompting concerns that Iran could use the funds to finance its worldwide terror operations, which include the financial backing of Hamas, Hezbollah, and other rogue entities.

These operations have already been used to kill Americans (e.g., the 1983 Beirut barracks bombing, the 1996 Khobar Towers bombing, direct assistance to terrorist insurgents in Iraq).

Not all of the money Obama is sending the mullahs will go toward terrorism. Some will finance the continued development of ballistic missiles. Iran doesn’t need these for a nuclear attack on Israel, but the USA is farther away.

Mark Dubowitz, the executive director of the Foundation for Defense of Democracies (FDD), said the ongoing release of these assets has provided Iran with a critical “financial lifeline.”

“The Obama administration provided Iran with a financial lifeline through both direct sanctions relief and the de-escalation of sanctions pressure that helped the regime stabilize its economy after a severe sanctions-induced economic crisis in 2012 and 2013,” Dubowitz said. “It is not a surprise that this has increased Iranian negotiating leverage and hardened the supreme leader’s nuclear intransigence.”

Not a surprise, or an accident either. How could it be?

There is a line between incompetence and treason. Whether Jimmy Carter crossed it by withdrawing support for our ally the Shah and thereby helping the current Iranian government to power is debatable. With Obama, it is an easier call.

    “The Obama administration on Wednesday paid $490 million in cash assets…”

    Since only congress controls the purse-strings of this nation, how is this sentence even possible? Somebody had to have authorized this spending in some bill we’ve never heard about. Because if a president can simply conjure up our money and send it across the globe on a whim, then he’s no different than a bank robber, with immunity.

    I want names.

    Just when Iran thought it had a great time pulling Jimmy Peanut Brain Carter’s chain along comes this assclown to make things ever easier for them to cause all sorts of trouble. Iran has never had it this good-even in the days of the Shah Iran played second banana to the US. Here the mullahs do as they please and call the shots while O’Idiot continues to try to kiss their asses for some mythical payoff. Guess what Emperor Ebola? You will be getting NOTHING from Tehran-except more trouble. You may love them but they still hate your guts.

    You ever heard of enough rope to hang yourself. If Iran suddenly decides to go nuclear and issue a bunch of threats, or worse nuke Tel Aviv, then we might be looking at a middle east glass bowl scenario. ISIS will be crushed between two regional powers. Gaza will burn and millions will be killed. Islam will be outlawed and a holocaust of the muslims will start. Jews will be the ones shoving them in the gas chambers this time and the irony will be quite obvious to anyone.

    I have said many times here that Barack Obama is an enemy of the United States. That every decision or policy he has made has acted to either weaken America and its allies or strengthen our enemies or both. Releasing the enemy combatants from Gitmo, resupplying the enemy with fighters and leadership and providing financial support to those enemies in a time of war are the actions of an enemy.
    Barack Obama is on the side the Islamists as he has demonstrated repeatedly and has side in his own words, “I will stand with the Muslims”. When Hitler wrote Mein Kampf, he laid out in great detail the principles, goals and strategies he would use to destroy the world, no one believed him and 20,000,000 people died. When a narcissistic sociopath tells you he stand with your enemies, you should take him at his word.

    If he were assassinated today I wouldn’t stop smiling. I never thought we would have a President that would make me think that way. But we never had such a total piece of shit for a President until Obama.

    The Democratic Party has lied to us again. Democrats and Barack Obama are preparing to escalate the Iraq War with even more American combat troops to retake Mosul, Iraq in the spring. That “JV Team” [ https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Sfq8On8coUE ] seems to be giving the world some problems these days..

    I recall reading six years ago that there was evidence the Iranians paid for Obama’s college education. Too bad the mainstream media couldn’t be bothered to report that.
