How Obama Secretly Gave Iran Access To Billions Of Dollars And Enabled Terrorism
IBD ^ | February 8, 2018 | Editor

Iran: One of the linchpins of former President Obama's nuclear deal with Iran was that it would be accompanied by a near-ban on Iran having any access to the U.S. banking system. A new congressional report says that, too, was a lie.

[snip] Obama sent a clear message to Congress: If you don't block ( this nuclear deal), we will bar Iran's access to our financial system. The deal was clear, unequivocal.

[snip]It was also a lie. Obama lied, and so did others in his administration.

That's the conclusion of a report by the Senate Permanent Subcommittee on Investigations. It alleges Obama officials pushed the U.S. Treasury to let Iran convert the equivalent of $5.7 billion of funds held in Oman's Bank of Muscat from rials into dollars and subsequently into euros.

[snip]Apart from the lie, which is bad enough for an administration that claimed repeatedly to be "scandal-free," this money did not have innocuous uses. Far from it.

More swamp for President Trump to drain while Obama works today behind the scene to stop the swamp from being drained.

To anyone paying a modicum of attention, this was NOT unexpected.

Wherever there is islamic extremism going on, you'd find Obama supporting it behind the scenes. Just another example.

That's one of the big reasons I want out of Syria. I don't care who gets to build pipelines through it (the real reason for the war) and I hate that we're on the side of ISIS in this damned fight. Thanks Obama.

Traitorobama - lies, murder, giving aid and comfort to the enemy.

Following his trial and conviction, a sentence to be a one-time rope tester awaits the convicted traitor.

UT-OH--J.Ansari Zarif, the Iranian deputy for parliamentary and Iranian affairs within Iran’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs,
said he would expose "everyone who allegedly accepted bribes" to facilitate Obama's nuke deal with Iran.
"We will reveal which western politicians received bribes."


Trump fired him now it turns out Secy of State Tillerson was pursuing Obama-era policies at the State Dept,
deliberately sabotaging President Trump on Iran policy, relations with Israel, the Paris Accords and other issues.
Several prominent Obama officials who have knowledge of the Iran deal are still at the State Dept:
<><> Sahar Nowrouzzadeh, in charge of Iran and the Persian Gulf region on the policy planning staff,
<><> a former John Kerry apprentice, Michael Ratney, occupies the Israeli-Palestinian portfolio,
<><> trusted Obama aide, Yael Lempert, served under Tillerson on the same platform.


President Barack Obama is briefed by Iranian Sahar Nowrouzzadeh, Director for Iran, NSC, before taping
a message to the Iranian people in the Blue Room of the White House, March 18, 2016.

REFERENCE--- Obama's $1.3B giveaway to Iran was paid in cash Jan 22 and Feb 5 from a little-known fund administered by the US Treasury.The so-called Judgment Fund is made up of tax dollars Congress has permanently approved in the event it's needed....

SOURCE: -----The Judgment Fund was established to pay court judgments and Justice Department compromise settlements of actual or imminent lawsuits against the government. It is administered by the Judgment Fund Section, which is a part of the United States Department of the Treasury, Bureau of the Fiscal Service. The Judgment Fund Internet Claims System (JFICS) is the application used to process all Judgment Fund claims.

The Judgment Fund is a permanent, indefinite appropriation available to pay judicially and administratively ordered monetary awards against the United States. The Judgment Fund is also available to pay amounts owed under compromise agreements negotiated by the U.S. Department of Justice in settlement of claims arising under actual or imminent litigation, if a judgment on the merits would be payable from the Judgment Fund. The statutory authority for the Judgment Fund is 31 U.S.C. 1304.

If funds for paying an award are otherwise provided for in the appropriations of the defendant agency, the Judgment Fund may not pay an award. A federal agency may request that payment of an award be made on its behalf from the Judgment Fund only in those instances where funds are not legally available to pay the award from the agency's own appropriations.

Amounts paid vary significantly from year-to-year. Federal agencies are not required to reimburse the Judgment Fund except when cases are filed under the Contract Disputes Act (CDA) or the No FEAR Act (Notification and Federal Employee Antidiscrimination and Retaliation Act).

NOTE WELL: Obama has refused to divulge who is contributing to his billion-dollar presidential center
knowing full his foreign policy decisions....(the deal with Iran).....were expected to yield dividends once he was out of office.

Obama delivers speech to Boeing after $10M donation made to his presidential center
Wash Exam | 1/28/19 | Diana Stancy Correll / FR Posted by DeathBeforeDishonor1

Former President Barack Obama delivered a speech at Boeing’s annual executive retreat earlier this month after the company donated $10 million to Obama’s library and museum in Chicago. Obama made an appearance at the retreat to provide leadership tips and waived his usual speaking fee for the occasion, Obama’s spokeswoman Katie Hill told Bloomberg. Just last year, former President George W. Bush also provided a speech at the same event.

A spokesman for the Obama Foundation, which is overseeing the creation of the Obama Presidential Center, did not disclose the exact amount Boeing donated to the library and museum fund, but noted that Boeing’s website says the gift was more than $1 million. Such a donation isn’t a first for Boeing, who previously donated $10 million to the George W. Bush Presidential Center in Dallas.

“We’re proud to partner with both of these presidential centers,” Boeing spokesman Gordon Johndroe told Bloomberg. Johndroe said it is a priority for Boeing to build relationships in the “communities where we live and work,” given Boeing is headquartered in Chicago and has a new global services division in Dallas. Other speakers at the recent Boeing retreat included Magic Johnson, the Los Angeles Lakers’ president of basketball operations and former NBA star. (Excerpt) Read more at ...


BACKSTORY--THE BOEING SHAKEDOWN: Obama and Secy of State Hillary teamed up to manipulate US foreign policy.....
signing off on a $29B arms deal that got the Halfrican and the Clintons BIG, BIG BUCKS.

THE SCAM UPCLOSE---While Clinton was Secy of State (and Obama was in the WH dining room watching basketball),
the Boeing Corp. got State Dept clearance for a $29 billion arms sale to Saudi Arabia, including Boeing’s F-15 fighter.

At that time, BOEING (cough) "GAVE" $900,000 to the Clinton Foundation.

And to get Obama to tear himself away from basketball, to sign off on the sales,
Boeing was strong-armed into signing up for the Halfrican's $10 million speech.

Interesting that the number $5.7 Billion is the exact amount that PDJT is requesting for a border barrier.

Wow. Reminds me of a comment Mark Levin made once years ago on his radio show, this was well before B. Hussein took office when Mark first started on the radio. He was talking about the 911 attacks and said something to the effect of: “When it comes to terrorists, the right wants to fight them, the left wants to elect them into office” When Obama won the election and immediately tried to close Gitmo on his second day in office, I couldn’t stop thinking about what Levin said, talk about hitting a bullseye. And then the “Obama-Biden” ticket which looked a little too much like “Osama Bin-Laden”, it made me wonder if they deliberately picked Biden as a little middle finger to the country. That’s why I call the democratic party the “Domestic enemy party”, what else do they do but try to destroy this country while supporting our enemies? Now they are supporting the south American drug gangs who are killing 100 times more Americans than terrorists ever did.

From 2017...

Obama allowing Iran to purchase uranium from Russia

Daniel Horowitz | January 10, 2017

Remember those side deals Obama forged with Iran that were not part of the text of the official treaty? Now we are finding out some of the details.

Yesterday, the Washington Free Beacon reported that Iranian officials confirmed they have received at least $10 billion in cash, commodities, and assets from Washington since 2013. And that is likely a conservative estimate.

But cash is not the only thing the Islamic Republic of Iran is receiving for gracing us with their willingness to sign onto our own capitulation.

The AP is reporting that Russia, with the support of President Obama, is shipping Iran 116 metric tons of natural uranium.

While Iranian officials have obviously declined to disclose the use of such uranium, AP notes that this is enough to enrich weapons-grade uranium for nuclear bombs:

“Despite present restrictions on its enrichment program, however, the amount of natural uranium is significant should Iran decide to keep it in storage, considering its potential uses once some limits on Tehran’s nuclear activities start to expire in less than a decade.

David Albright, whose Institute of Science and International Security often briefs U.S. lawmakers on Iran’s nuclear program, says the shipment could be enriched to enough weapons-grade uranium for more than 10 simple nuclear bombs, “depending on the efficiency of the enrichment process and the design of the nuclear weapon.” ...”

Sen. D’Amato Drops Bomb: Hillary Allowed Russia to Take Ownership of US Uranium to Sell to Iran

Jim Hoft
Jul 3rd, 2016

Former Senator Al D’Amato (R-NY) dropped a bomb on Sunday Morning Futures this AM. D’Amato told Maria Bartiromo that Hillary allowed Russia to take ownership of US uranium so they could sell it to Iran.

Hillary made it possible for the Russians to take control of one of our huge uranium producers and allow them to own the company, export the uranium and who do they sell the uranium to? Iran!

Now if people knew that and that the foundation as a result of that got $135 million. I think people would start saying, “What?”

It’s true.
In January 2013, Pravda celebrated the Russian atomic energy agency’s purchase of the company “Uranium One” in Canada.

That same company, Uranium One, owned uranium concessions in the United States. Because uranium is a strategically important commodity, the Russians would need approval from the Obama administration, including Hillary’s State Department, before the purchase took place.

Nine shareholders in Uranium One just happened to provide more than $145 million in donations to the Clinton Foundation in the run-up to State Department approval.

The Clintons took the cash from Uranium One officials before the deal was approved by Hillary Clinton’s State Department. The Clintons hid the donations which is a clear violation of the Memorandum of Understanding Hillary Clinton signed with the Obama administration wherein she promised and agreed to publicly disclose all donations during her tenure as Secreatary of State. (Via Breitbart)

The New York Times reported on the crooked deal in 2015.

As the Russians gradually assumed control of Uranium One in three separate transactions from 2009 to 2013, Canadian records show, a flow of cash made its way to the Clinton Foundation. Uranium One’s chairman used his family foundation to make four donations totaling $2.35 million. Those contributions were not publicly disclosed by the Clintons, despite an agreement Mrs. Clinton had struck with the Obama White House to publicly identify all donors. Other people with ties to the company made donations as well.

And then there’s this...

Senator John Barrasso (R-WY) told Greta Van Susteren the deal Hillary approved gave Putin ownership of 20 percent of US uranium and Russia sells uranium to unfriendly countries, including Iran.

Well, he stepped down at the end of his term, which I had some doubt that he would, so now I don’t have to listen to him or see his wife/whatever again.

It does seem that he is still actively working against Trump and this country. He has earned his place as the worst president ever and top spot on the list of the all-time American/Kenyan traitors. It is a short list and he won the top spot honestly probably the only time in his life you could say that about him.
