    The Obama administration granted citizenship to 2,500 Iranians, including family members of government officials, while negotiating the Iran nuclear deal, a senior cleric and member of parliament has claimed. Hojjat al-Islam Mojtaba Zolnour, who is chairman of Iran’s parliamentary nuclear committee and a member of its national security and foreign affairs committee, made the allegations during an interview with the country’s Etemad newspaper, cited by the country’s Fars News agency. He claimed it was done as a favor to senior Iranian officials linked to President Hassan Rouhani, and he alleged the move sparked a competition among Iranian officials over whose...

    Iran has been killing & threatening Americans for 40 years but somehow Trump is the problem. They’ve been chanting death to America for a very long time. The media & their political traitors are creating more hate & exasperating the problem by their constant Trump attacks. But let’s not forget that we have allies in Iran too Today a local Iranian investigative journalist tweeted: Attention certain DC politicians & “Iran experts” By criticizing Trump, you are literally encouraging the regime in Iran.

    National Review ^ | David Harsanyi
    In his address to the nation this morning, Donald Trump asserted that the ballistic missiles that targeted the al-Assad and Erbil bases in Iraq yesterday were paid for using “funds made available by the last administration.” Few things irritate media fact checkers more than Trump’s accusation that Obama helped fund the Iranian regime and its terror apparatus. Probably because it’s completely true. Now, we don’t really know that Obama’s ransom payments to Iran in 2016 subsidized those specific ballistic missiles, but we do know that money is fungible — especially when you have access to small denominations of European cash...
  • Trump Pins Some Blame On Obama For Iran's Missile Attack. Should He Have?

    Trump pins some blame on Obama for missile attack. Should he have? During his address to the nation this morning about the situation with Iran, President Trump said the ballistic missiles that targeted two U.S. air bases in Iraq were paid for using “funds made available by the last administration.” This assertion enraged Democrats and their media allies such as the Washington Post.Is their outrage justified? I see two issues here. The first is whether President Trump should be calling out his predecessor, especially at a time when national unity (however slender the hope for it may be) is particularly...

    Susan Rice, who served as national security adviser during the Obama administration, fired back Wednesday at President Trump for accusing President Obama of providing Iran with funds that were ultimately used to launch missiles at U.S. personnel in Iraq. Rice dismissed Trump’s claims that the U.S. gave Iran $150 billion in the landmark 2015 nuclear deal, noting that the funds were in fact Iranian money that was frozen as a result of the deal. “This is another series of despicable lies by President Trump,” Rice said on MSNBC. “The fact that … three years after taking office he remains obsessed...

    One of the Mexican gunmen who killed a U.S. Border Patrol agent, consequently sparking the Obama administration’s “Fast and Furious” scandal, was sentenced to life in prison. U.S. District Judge David C. Bury on Wednesday sentenced Heraclio Osorio-Arellanes to life in federal prison for first-degree murder. The sentencing follows Osorio-Arellanes’s involvement in a 2010 border shootout between Mexican gunmen and U.S. officials, resulting in the death of Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry... Osorio-Arellanes fled the scene and evaded justice for many years. However, Mexican authorities arrested him in 2017 in Chihuahua. He was extradited to the U.S. in 2018 and...

    Donald Trump blamed Barack Obama on Wednesday for supplying Iran with the money to purchase a torrent of missiles fired at American military positions Tuesday night. “The missiles fired last night at us and our allies were paid for with the funds made available by the last administration,” he said, citing $150 billion in frozen assets that the previous president released and $1.5 billion flown by the U.S. to Tehran. […] “Our missiles are big, powerful, accurate, lethal and fast,” he said, sending a warning in nearly the same breath as an olive branch. “Under construction are many hypersonic missiles,”...

    Former US President Barack Obama is now in severe legal jeopardy, because the Russiagate investigation has turned 180 degrees; and he, instead of the current President, Donald Trump, is in its cross-hairs. The biggest crime that a US President can commit is to try to defeat American democracy (the Constitutional functioning of the US Government) itself, either by working with foreign powers to take it over, or else by working internally within America to sabotage democracy for his or her own personal reasons. Either way, it’s treason (crime that is intended to, and does, endanger the continued functioning of the...

    After President Trump declared that Iran “appears to be standing down” in the wake of Tuesday's missile strikes on Iraqi airbases, Fox News senior strategic analyst Gen. Jack Keane said that Trump had executed a diplomatic strategy that could enable the U.S. to negotiate with Iran without further military action. “It changed from the strategy of appeasement under the Obama administration to confrontation using economic pressure to do that,” Keane told “The Daily Briefing” Wednesday. “The American people should be extremely grateful and happy,” Trump said in an address to the nation from the White House the morning after the...

    President Trump addressed the nation Wednesday morning following the Iranian missile attacks that hit US facilities in Iraq. The President called out Barack Obama for the sham nuke deal that gave Iran $150 billion. Trump also blasted Obama for the additional $1.8 billion in cash that he delivered to Iran in unmarked cargo planes on wooden pallets. President Trump said the missiles that were fired last night were funded by the Obama Administration. The garbage nuke deal wasn’t worth the paper is was written on (Obama never required Iranian leaders to sign the nuke deal).

In 2015, General Flynn called out the corrupt Obama Admin for the Iran nuke deal (JCPA) that was created on July 14, 2015 Israel was also reportedly close to assassinating Soleimani back in 2015, but the Obama Admin tipped off Iran to Israel’s plan.

    The Trump administration took steps Tuesday to roll back an Obama-era rule intended to ensure that communities confront and address racial segregation in housing, saying local governments have been overburdened by the requirements. The proposed Department of Housing and Urban Development rule would redefine fair housing standards to place more emphasis on improving housing choice rather than reducing discrimination. It would reduce regulatory burdens and eliminate the assessment tool used to map racial segregation under the 2015 Affirmatively Furthering Fair Housing rule. According to HUD, simplifying the process for cities to meet fair housing requirements would help them meet their...

    On Friday morning the United States killed General Qassim Soleimani, a top commander of Iran’s al-Quds Force, in an airstrike at Baghdad’s International Airport. The strike also killed Abu Mahdi al-Muhandis, the deputy commander of Iran-backed militias known as the Popular Mobilization Forces. Seven people were reportedly killed in the airstrike. The Iranian regime is threatening retaliation against the United States following the death of their terror leader. On Sunday the Iranian Regime offered an $80 million bounty for anyone who brings in the head of President Donald Trump for killing Qassam Soleimani. And on Tuesday the Iranian parliament allocated...

The video is below. http://www.israelnationalnews.com/Articles/Article.aspx/24991 On April 4, 2015 Michael Kelley wrote in Business Insider "Iran’s military mastermind also directed 'a network of militant groups that killed hundreds of Americans in Iraq,' as detailed by Dexter Filkins in The New Yorker." "Consequently, the idea of working in parallel to Suleimani was one that the Obama administration does not want to acknowledge. “'There’s just no way that the US military can actively support an offensive led by Suleimani,' Christopher Harmer, a former aviator in the...
