How Obama Lies Financed Iran’s War Machine


How Obama Lies Financed Iran’s War Machine

Article Written By Jeffrey A. Friedberg

I read Barack Hussein Obama and his wife are ready to resume hitting the “campaign trail,” once more, to promote like-minded “progressives.” And other communist bastards.

I also read that back in the year 2000, the “average American’s” attention span was about 12 seconds.

But by 2013, it had somehow been reduced to about 8 seconds. A goldfish has an attention span of about 9 seconds.

This somehow had got me thinking about a past news story that is currently remaking the rounds.

Back in, January, 2016—as you no doubt recall—Iran captured, and then released ten, teary-eyed, US Navy prisoners. Along with their highly advanced, “riverine” fast-boats, all of their equipment, software, records, laptops, and more, most of which had all been copied, stripped out, taken apart, and otherwise raped real good.

This was hailed by Obama and his mirror image, the New York Times:

“Their quick release was hailed…as an unintended benefit of the new diplomatic relationship with Iran established by the nuclear accord negotiated between Tehran and the United States….”

Once again, their guy—self named with his three militant Muslim names, Barack Hussein Obama—their genius, had triumphed, for Democrats, children, and the world.

Just brilliant. Two US crews and their boats are captured at gunpoint, wandering around lost in Iranian waters, and are released after bawling their eyes out and apologizing on video—and it was hailed as an act of some brilliant “diplomatic relationship.”

Maybe they were released for ransom? Because, this was also about the same time Obama sent the very same Iranians something like $1,700,000,000 (BILLION) dollars. In piles of unmarked cash.

On pallets.

In unmarked aircraft.

I wondered if the “average American” remembered all those lies? Did she or he recall Obama’s servile obeisance to Iran’s mullahs—as she or he maybe marched around calling Trump, “Hitler,” or a “moron,” or, “mentally ill.”

I wondered if the average American even wondered about this at all? Whether this, in fact, had been a ransom payoff to release the prisoners? Or a bribe for the Iranians to sign Obama’s “historic nuclear agreement,” which in effect gave Iran “legal” nuclear weapons?

Or was it maybe money the US somehow “owed” Iran, because of past evil Trump sanctions?
Just what was it?

“( – Sen. Tom Cotton (R-Ark.) on Wednesday likened the manner in which the Obama administration paid $400 million to Iran on the day five imprisoned Americans were released to a ‘drug cartel transaction.’

“Speaking to Fox News’ Greta Van Susteren, Cotton described the incident last January as ‘…small unmarked bills, flying into Iran on a unmarked aircraft, like it was a drug cartel transaction, not a legitimate negotiation between two governments.’”

Upon being questioned about the circumstances and exact amount of the apparent payoff—over the next days, weeks, and months—Obama hemmed and hawed, and even appeared to shuck and jive, bringing in “racism,” and made other snarky distractions, but he never did come out with just the straight, true story.

Naturally, the enslaved, vomiting-dog media praised and cheered. As usual, they seemed to proclaim that Obama, and his “transparency,” and his moves on Iran, were all just totally brilliant.

What they like to call, “No drama Obama,” just out there doing his usual one hell of a job, they said. Great deal for America and the world, with his new “partners,” the Iranians.

Partners in crime, if you were to ask me about it.

Despite what Obama and his madcap media lapdogs had said, and tried to ram up our clenched butt cheeks, this was NOT, “a good deal,” for America and/or the world.

In fact, it was a very bad deal.

The media’s rampant phrase, “tensions were reduced,” is another lie. These days, Iran has regularly played “chicken” with our destroyers and other war craft in the Strait of Hormuz. They call us names, make outrageous threats, and shout “Death To America.” They finance terrorism all over the world. And much more.

But I notice that the brave, defiant, well-dressed Iranians don’t send out anything big and expensive to harass US warships.

No. They only send those zippy, EL Cheapo, little fast boats.

If they were to lose one of those minis and a couple or four of their well-dressed Iranian “elite” to American fire, it wouldn’t be like they lost maybe one of their own, big, expensive destroyers and a few hundred sailors, or whatever.

Hard to replace those larger babies. Martyrs, they got…but not big ships so much.

Anyway, this lying Obama guy—the hot shot, community organizer. He was the same guy who told you, no less than apparently 36 times, how you could keep your health plan under Obamacare. Am I right?

Yes. I am.

Obama reportedly told lots of other lies in his career and Presidency. But Politifact, for one, seemed to try and “clarify” and cover for all that; in fact, I could almost feel the wind off their backflips and tap dances. Because, see, they said, Obama was just “wrong;” because he later found out that “the promise was impossible to keep.”

Not his fault.

Maybe he, “only found out about it, when,” he, “read it in the newspaper,” as he has said many times.

POLITIFACT:  “It was a catchy political pitch and a chance to calm nerves about his dramatic and complicated plan to bring historic change to America’s health insurance system.

“‘If you like your health care plan, you can keep it,’ ” President Barack Obama said — many times — of his landmark new law.

“But the promise was impossible to keep.

“So this fall, as cancellation letters were going out to approximately 4 million Americans, the public realized Obama’s breezy assurances were wrong.

“Boiling down the complicated health care law to a soundbite proved treacherous, even for its promoter-in-chief. Obama and his team made matters worse, suggesting they had been misunderstood all along. The stunning political uproar led to this: a rare presidential apology.”

It was “complicated?”

He apologized?


I guess—what—that makes it okay?

Hand me a barf bag.

Is he going to apologize for pretty much having given Iran The Bomb?

Or is he going to apologize for this, from:

“Iran is using the billions in cash resources provided under the landmark nuclear deal to engage in an unprecedented military buildup meant to transform the Islamic Republic’s fighting force into an ‘offensive’ juggernaut, according to a largely unreported announcement by Iranian military leaders that has sparked concern among U.S. national security insiders and sources on Capitol Hill.

“Iranian officials announced late last month that Iran’s defense budget had increased by 145 percent under President Hassan Rouhani and that the military is moving forward with a massive restructuring effort aimed at making it ‘a forward moving force,’ according to regional reports.

“Iranian leaders have stated since the Iran deal was enacted that they are using the massive amounts of cash released under the agreement to fund the purchase of new military equipment and other armaments.

“Iran also has pursued multi-million dollar arms deals with Russia since economic sanctions were nixed as part of the deal.

“Leading members of Congress and U.S. officials working on the Iran portfolio suspect that at least a portion of the Obama administration’s 1.7 Billion USD paid to Iran has been used to fund and support terrorists in the Middle East.

“The latest disclosure about Iran’s military buildup is further fueling concerns that U.S. cash assets returned to the country—which were released with no strings attached by the Obama administration—are helping Iran pursue a more aggressive military stance against U.S. forces in the region.

“ ‘President Obama flat-out caved in to Iran when he handed them the disastrous nuclear deal and $1.7 billion in cash payments that could assist Iran’s military,’ Rep. Sean Duffy (R., Wis.), an opponent of the nuclear deal, told the Washington Free Beacon. ‘So it’s no surprise that the world’s lead sponsor of terrorism would feel emboldened to become more aggressive in the region and flex its military muscle.’” 

Let me repeat part of that, for those who have the reported attention span of a goldfish:

There are “concerns that…cash assets returned to the country—which were released with no strings attached by the Obama administration—are helping Iran pursue a more aggressive military stance against U.S. forces in the region.”

Let me see, if I have this right.

1. Obama gave Iran an agreement that the Iranians could make nuclear bombs to their hearts’ content.
2. Then he gave them $1,700,000,00 to play with—“no strings attached.”
3. Then: “Iranian leaders have stated since the Iran deal was enacted that they are using the massive amounts of cash released under the agreement to fund the purchase of new military equipment and other armaments.”

Kids…if it walks like a duck and quacks like a duck….

Okay. Why am I writing this, when there are so many other insanely hilarious stories out there?

Because, I’m asking you:

Which team has Obama really been playing for? Whose side is he really on? Did he intentionally try to build Iran into a regional, nuclear world power? Did he enable and abet an upcoming attack on US forces, or maybe even upon America itself? What old or new lies has he maybe told about all this?

Why does he—seemingly every time—protect and advance Islam, at almost any cost, at any price, and without any visible care about possible outcomes for America? Is he a Muslim? Will he sooner or later announce a “dramatic conversion”?

Because, as I understand it, he was born into a paternal, 100% Muslim family. Further, that once you’re in, you don’t get out. Not alive, anyway, if Islam has its way.

This, from

“Elements of Islam: You can’t leave Islam once you’re in. This is an interesting one. It is actually illegal in Islamic states to convert out of Islam. This is a critical part of Sharia law. Someone who has rejected Islam who was once a Muslim is an “apostate.” This is a crime and a sin, and the punishment for it is death….” 

1. Obama was born into Islam.
2. Once you’re in, you can’t get out.
3. Obama has never renounced Islam.
4. He gave himself three Arabic, Muslim names.

Is Barry Soetoro, AKA Barack Hussein Obama, a Muslim playing for the Islamo team?

Or, to borrow from the deranged Liberals: Is Obama, “Hitler,” or a “moron,” or, “mentally ill.”

I don’t know.

Do you?
