(Bugout.news) While the media freak out about how GOP presidential contender Donald Trump touched his daughter, Ivanka, during his acceptance speech and openly ponder whether he has the mentality to be president, our current commander-in-chief is doing all he can to arm an Islamic enemy.
Literally. All he can.
As you may have read, the Obama administration paid a $400 million ransom to the Iranians in January, as part of an overall $1.7 billion “settlement” stemming from a failed weapons purchase in 1979, the year Iran’s religious fanatics took over the country and held 53 Americans hostage for more than a year. And the White House did so in a manner reminiscent of the way an international criminal organization might move cash.
As The Wall Street Journal reported:
The Obama administration secretly organized an airlift of $400 million worth of cash to Iran that coincided with the January release of four Americans detained in Tehran, according to U.S. and European officials and congressional staff briefed on the operation afterward.
Wooden pallets stacked with euros, Swiss francs and other currencies were flown into Iran on an unmarked cargo plane, according to these officials. The U.S. procured the money from the central banks of the Netherlands and Switzerland, they said.
The money represented the first installment of a $1.7 billion settlement the Obama administration reached with Iran to resolve a decades-old dispute over a failed arms deal signed just before the 1979 fall of Iran’s last monarch, Shah Mohammad Reza Pahlavi.
This “resolution” just happened to also coincide with the signing of the so-called nuclear “deal” with Iran, meaning that, yet again, another previously secret aspect of the agreement confirms what critics have said all along: This regime is providing the means for the Iranian regime to arm up and provide support to terrorist organizations who target Americans and our allies.
This isn’t “stupidity” or this administration being “out of its league,” as some have charged. This and other aspects of the deal were purposeful acts of sabotage against the national security and well-being of the United States by a man who so obviously hates the very country that produced him, then elected him – twice – as its leader. That last part says more about us than it does Obama, but that’s another subject for another day.
The fact is, the Islamic terrorist movement is on the march and it has been, ever since those first ISIS forces rolled into Iraq and Syria. Our stretched-thin, politically-correct and increasingly under-equipped military has been ineffectually deployed against this unconventional enemy. And like ours, other nations drop bombs from fighter planes on parts of the world that have long since been reduced to rubble, then beat their chests like they’ve done something effective.
Iran, by happenstance, wants to rule that part of the world. Not simply dominate it, but rule it. That might not be of much interest to Americans were it not for some loyal allies in the region like Israel, and some useful allies in the region like Saudi Arabia, Jordan, and Bahrain, the latter home to the U.S. Fifth Fleet and now mired in civil strife, thanks to the Obama administration’s decision to lift an arms embargo.
With Iran at the helm, global terrorism will become better financed (remember, part of the nuclear “deal” is the unfreezing of $150 billion in Iranian assets), more organized, and have an established base of operation fully endorsed by a sovereign country that will soon have nuclear weapons. We’ve already seen terrorism in our country; the Iranian “deal” will ensure that we’ll see more.
This is all on Obama and his sick desire to see the U.S. suffer – globally and domestically. But he has been empowered by legions of congressional cowards in the “opposition” party, military flag officers and Pentagon careerists who choose status quo over doing the right thing (which would be resigning and thus not being a part of Obama’s master plan), and the sycophantic mainstream media that has helped Obama carry out his destruction by glossing over, ignoring, and even cheering his abuses of power and trust.
War is coming to American streets. There can be no doubt about it at this point. Between the havoc Obama has wreaked among the masses with his incessant left-wing activism, his economically suicidal policies, the anger being stoked at the thought of a Trump presidency, and the financing of international terrorism, Obama is doing all he can to ensure that the last vestiges of American tradition and exceptionalism are wiped from the planet.
