Posted on 05/20/2019 10:50:07 AM PDT by detective
Under Obama, Americans were struggling to find work while he illegally shipped billions of dollars in taxpayer money to the Islamic terrorists of Iran. Under Trump, the terrorists are losing their jobs while Americans are gaining them.
Since President Trump introduced sweeping new restrictions on trade with Iran last year, raising tensions with Tehran that reached a crescendo in recent days, Irans ability to finance allies such as Hezbollah has been curtailed. Hezbollah, the best funded and most senior of Tehrans proxies, has seen a sharp fall in its revenue and is being forced to make draconian cuts to its spending, according to Hezbollah officials, members and supporters.
Fighters are being furloughed or assigned to the reserves, where they receive lower salaries or no pay at all, said a Hezbollah employee with one of the groups administrative units. Many of them are being withdrawn from Syria, where the militia has played an instrumental role in fighting on behalf of President Bashar al-Assad and ensuring his survival.
Programs on Hezbollahs television station Al-Manar have been canceled and their staff laid off, according to another Hezbollah insider.

Iran needs funds from the United States to fund terrorists, threaten other countries and develop nuclear weapons.
The Obama administration illegally gave Iran billions of U.S. taxpayer dollars. President Trump has stopped it and applied sanctions.
President Trump is winning.
Will the UN request financial Aid for the Islamic Terrorists ?
Excellent news. Hope it continues and the whole Islamic regime collapses sooner, rather than later.
The Obama administration illegally gave Iran billions of U.S. taxpayer dollars.
Couldn’t have done it without the Corker bill to stand the Constitution on its head.
Tom Cotton was the only GOP Senator to vote against.
“Under Obama, Americans were struggling to find work while he illegally shipped billions of dollars in taxpayer money to the Islamic terrorists of Iran.”
The Hussein Heads at FR pontificated, “It was their money anyway.”
Well, the Islamic Terrorists could just go to Tehran and collect in person ...
Iran is withering on the vine
The question is does Iran have the wherewithall to actually join the battle absent surrogate front men
Westerners frequently miss that upraised index finger as the Islamic supremacist sign that it is.
I can hardly keep from crying...tears of joy.
I figured it was bad when Hezbollah put up a GoFundMe page asking for donations to buy gunpowder and ball bearings.

I was surprised to read recently that the population of Russia is decreasing by 700 DAILY. BTW, Russia is [geographically] the largest country in the world...has a smaller population that the island of Java...also, their GDP is small than the GDP of Texas.
blam to GuavaCheesePuff
It's also got very little GDP that isn't attributable to either hydrocarbon exports and weapons sales.
It’s odd how Democrats have grown to hate the Russians BUT to love home-grown communists...
And they're lying about hating the Russians. The corrupt bastards will pretend to love anyone who will slip them a bag of money.
We should withhold dollars from the UN too.
bammy took our money and gave it to bearded savages, who used some of it to pay terrorists.
Trump is blocking money going to the bearded savages dressed in white dresses.
Which of the two loves this country and which hates it and betrayed it and deserves to be in prison?

Column One: Portents of quagmires in Syria
Where is Obama? or is he one taking the picture?
Obama is supposed to be this bad-ass community organizer, right? So he could have easily sent these billions to his people (at least offered them loans or lines of credit to purchase homes or start their own businesses) instead of giving them to Iran.
If I was black in Chicago, I'd be royally pissed.
Great post detective :)
