Iran Proving Obama Gave Them EVERYTHING They Wanted
When you think about countries that could challenge the United States militarily, you think of Russia, China, and Germany. You do not think of Iran, because that country is small, has a weak military, little nuclear power, and they barely have a navy.
So why does Obama continue to allow Iran to take advantage of and wipe the floor with the United States? When you think about the United States, you think of things like strength, bravery, and patriotism. Under Obama, all of those things have weakened.
A few weeks ago, we became aware with confirmed reports that the Obama paid Iran $1.3 billion in US taxpayer funds in unmarked cash. Obama lied and argued this money was part of a settlement rather than a ransom.
It was also reported a few weeks ago that the $1.3 billion payment to Iran was not part of the $400 million ransom the Obama administration paid in exchange for U.S. hostages. The Obama administration claims the $400 million was part of a $1.7 billion legal settlement reached with Iran earlier this year.
Now, we see that the initial amount was a total lie. Reports are now indicating Iran may have received an additional $33.6 billion in secret cash and gold payments facilitated by the Obama administration between 2014 and 2016, according to testimony provided before Congress by an expert on last summer’s nuclear agreement with Iran.
Why Does Obama Work With Terrorists And Countries That Want To Murder Us?
The report argues that between January 2014 and July 2015, when the Obama administration was hammering out the final details of the nuclear accord, Iran was paid $700 million every month from funds that had previously been frozen by U.S. sanctions. A total of $11.9 billion was ultimately paid to Iran, but the details surrounding these payments remain shrouded in mystery, according to Mark Dubowitz, executive director at the Foundation for Defense of Democracies.
“In July, the Associated Press cited U.S. officials who estimated that Iran ‘brought home less than $20 billion.’ Were these funds repatriated to Tehran in cash or in gold and precious metals? Through the formal financial system? Or through some combination?” Dubowitz asked in his testimony before the House Financial Services Committee.
“The administration should also clarify if the $20 billion dollars is inclusive of the $11.9 billion in [Joint Plan of Action] funds, or if the $20 billion was in addition to the $11.9 billion,” he said. “Either way, it is important to understand how funds were sent. The worst-case scenario here is that Iran may have received as much as $33.6 billion in cash or in gold and other precious metals.”
The cash payment of $1.7 billion earlier this year was the easiest way to ensure Iran got immediate access to the money, according to these officials. “Iran had to have it in cash,” Paul Ahern, assistant general counsel for enforcement and intelligence at the Treasury Department, told lawmakers. “Iran was very aware of the difficulties it would face in accessing and using the funds if they were in any other form than cash, even after the lifting of sanctions.”
Think about it. Iran is the world’s largest state sponsor of terrorism, they have been manipulating Obama’s administration since 2014 to get everything they wanted for their nuclear program, now they have received more than $2 billion, in total, in cash. It is very likely that Iran wanted cash and gold because it is untraceable. They aren’t using that money to help their country or citizens, it will go to fund terrorism.
ISIS occupies Syria and Iraq, for many reasons, but think about why they have not tried to pick a fight with Iran. Iran is the leading power in the Middle East outside of Saudi Arabia and Israel (US allies), so if Iran can bolster their army and strengthen ISIS, they are slowly becoming the leading player in the region. It is all part of their plan, and Obama is giving them everything they want without any fight at all.
Michael Rubin, a former Pentagon official and expert on rogue regimes, said that cash payments of this nature are “highly irregular.”
Obama Has Been The Weakest President In American History
“There’s no reason it needed to be paid now. After all, successive administrations, both Democratic and Republican, have delayed payments so as to avoid funding Iranian terrorism,” Rubin said. “Likewise, if the United States freezes accounts linked to al Qaeda or Hamas, releasing it and saying, ‘It’s their money anyway,’ would not be a tenable explanation. Cash payments are highly irregular.”
Under Obama, this country has never been weaker in the eyes of every country on this planet. When you think of America, you better realize we are the greatest, freest, and most decent society in existence. This country, once an experiment unique in the world, is now the last best hope for the world.
By making sacrifices for America and by our willingness to die for her, we owe it to those great patriots who risked it all at Normandy, Gettysburg, and Iwo Jima, and we prove ourselves worthy of the blessings of freedom. By defeating the terrorist threat posed by Islamic radicalism, we can protect the American way of life. We can stop pandering to Iran get back to American exceptionalism under Trump.
History will view America as a great gift to the world, a gift that Americans today appreciate again. We can only do that if we get back to what made us great in the first place. And it wasn’t by cowering to terrorists, bowing to Islam, allowing countries to take Americans hostage, or attempting to take Navy sailors captive.
Are you tired of Obama and Hillary making us weaker in the world? Are you tired of other countries telling the United States can and cannot do?
