Obama Admin Won’t Tell Congress How It Paid Iran $1.3 Billion in Taxpayer Funds

Washington Free Beacon

The Obama administration is withholding from Congress details about how $1.3 billion in U.S. taxpayer funds was delivered to Iran, according to conversations with lawmakers, who told the Washington Free Beacon that the administration is now stonewalling an official inquiry into the matter.

The Departments of State, Treasury, and Justice have all rebuffed a congressional probe into the circumstances surrounding the $1.3 billion payment to Iran, which is part of an additional $400 million cash payout that occurred just prior to the release of several U.S. hostages and led to accusations that the administration had paid Iran a ransom.

The Obama administration has admitted in recent days that the $400 million cash delivery to Iran was part of an effort to secure the release of these American hostages, raising further questions on Capitol Hill about White House efforts to suppress these details from the public.

The $400 million was part of a $1.7 billion legal settlement reached with Iran earlier this year. Congressional inquiries into how this money reached Iran are failing to get answers.

We can’t afford to give terrorists a one-way ticket back to the battlefield

The Hill

Last week the Obama Administration approved its largest-ever release of detainees from Guantanamo Bay, sending 15 extremists back into the world.

By now, the pattern has become familiar:  the President lets hardened terrorists go free, Congress and the American people express outrage, and the White House ignores the uproar.

But the grave risks of this policy cannot be ignored.  The President is giving terrorists a one-way ticket back to the battlefield.

In fact, officials have confirmed to Congress that some former detainees are responsible for attacking or killing Americans since being freed.  Yet, incredibly, the releases persist.

Not only does the President’s rush to open Gitmo’s jail cells allow fighters to keep waging war against us, it also gives the jihadist A-team a chance to mentor a new generation of radicals.

“Outrageous” hardly describes the non-logic of this policy.  What Commander-in-Chief lets the enemy return to the fight in the middle of a war?

But that’s just the problem—the President doesn’t believe we’re fighting one.

Europe is Submitting to Sharia and We’re Next

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

SECURE FREEDOM MINUTE

Yesterday in Los Angeles, European and American freedom fighters met to raise an alarm about the dire threat Western civilization faces from Islamic supremacism. Convened by the American Freedom Alliance and featuring a powerful keynote address by Ambassador John Bolton, this conference made clear that Europe is already submitting to Sharia. And we are in the advanced stages of doing so, as well.

The canary-in-the-mineshaft is the state of freedom of expression. European participants warned that, thanks to essentially unchecked Muslim immigration and decades of multiculturalism, secularism and transnationalism, they and other opponents of Sharia are being prosecuted for speaking truthfully about its incompatibility with liberty.

For an American audience, the message was clear: Will we here continue going down the same road? Or will we choose to thwart those enemies, foreign and domestic, seeking our submission?

More PC Cowards Cave: Ole Miss Won’t Play Dixie

One more effort is being made to destroy all southern pride.

In a few years, they will go after the Washington Monument. They could one day call it the Barack Obama memorial and put a minaret on top. After all, he turned us towards Socialism.

Ole Miss’ band will no longer play “Dixie” before football games. The athletics department, undoubtedly under pressure, said it’s time for new traditions. It’s like telling the Germans they can’t sing Deutschland and can’t drink beer and eat sausages.

YouTube appears to have removed most of the Dixie songs. I had to really hunt for them. There is nothing racist about the song unless mentioning “land of cotton” is now verboten.

Dixie–a song that was the unofficial anthem of the Confederate States of America during the Civil War–has been a staple of Pride of the South’s lineup for nearly seven decades, wafb reported. Recently the band stopped playing the song during games, but had continued to perform it in The Grove on game days.

The athletic department released the following statement about the change:

“The newly expanded and renovated Vaught-Hemingway Stadium will further highlight our best traditions and create new ones that give the Ole Miss Rebels the best home field advantage in college football. Because the Pride of the South is such a large part of our overall experience and tradition, the Athletics Department asked them to create a new and modern pregame show that does not include Dixie and is more inclusive for all fans.”

The song is harmless now. The south lost. This is just a nice song that makes the southerners feel a sense of harmless pride. The war has been over for more than 150 years.

This attack on the song is moronic. Most of the southerners fighting didn’t have slaves. They were fighting for their new country.

Are they going to replace it with Beyoncé singing and dancing to anti-police songs and pro-domestic terrorist groups? Maybe Black Lives Matter has a theme song they can play. They do sing, “Pigs in a blanket, fry ’em like bacon.”

This next version is great.

The Black Lives Matter troublemakers at Ole Miss wanted the state flag removed also — so it was. They can’t be called Ole Miss because that is somehow racist and they can’t be called the Rebels any longer.

So where does it end?

It needs to have never begun.

Ole Miss, the rebels, playing Dixie on Beale Street.

Barack Obama: Peace Prize Winner Becomes World’s Biggest Arms Dealer in 8 Short Years

Nobel-peace-drone-Obama

By Darius Shahtahmasebi

On Thursday, the U.S. State Department approved the sale of more military equipment, valued at around $1.15 billion USD, to the oil-rich kingdom of Saudi Arabia. This sounds like a lot of money to most of us, but the most frightening aspect of the sale is that it represents a continuation of an arms-dealing relationship between Washington and the Saudi regime, which has been worth over $50 billion USD in arms sales to date.

It is not an understatement to say Obama’s tears over gun violence are disingenuous considering his administration has enacted a policy of systematically arming the entire world with all manner of warcraft. According to the Department of Defense Security Cooperation Agency (DSCA), during his first six years in office, the Obama administration entered into agreements to sell more than $190 billion USD in weaponry worldwide. As the director of the Arms and Security Project at the Center for International Policy, William D. Hartung, states, this figure is higher than any U.S. administration since World War II. Perhaps that is why the Nobel secretary has voiced serious regrets about awarding the Peace Prize to the president.

I Knew THE OBAMA’S BOTH LOST THEIR LAW LICENSES, But I Didn’t Know WHY

FORMER LAWYERS?

VIA|  I knew they had both lost their law license, but I didn’t know why until I read this.

This is 100% legit. I check it out at https://www.iardc.org/ Stands for Illinois Attorney Registration And Disciplinary Committee. It’s the official arm of lawyer discipline in Illinois ; and they are very strict. (Talk about irony.)

Big surprise.

Former Constitutional Law Lecturer and U.S. President Makes Up Constitutional Quotes During State Of The Union (SOTU) Address.

Consider this:

1. President Barack Obama, former editor of the Harvard Law Review, is no longer a “lawyer”. He surrendered his license back in 2008 in order to escape charges he lied on his bar application. A “Voluntary Surrender” is not something where you decide “Gee, a license is not really something I need anymore, is it?” and forget to renew your license. No, a “Voluntary Surrender” is something you do when you’ve been accused of something, and you ‘voluntarily surrender” your license five seconds before the state suspends you.

2 Michelle Obama “voluntarily surrendered” her law license in 1993. after a Federal Judge gave her the choice between surrendering her license or standing trial for Insurance fraud!
