Investigate Obama stopping Project Cassandra



Ben Rhodes ran the PR for Obama giving Iran $150 billion. Rhodes's brother runs the news at CBS. That network argued that gee, Obama did not give the money to Iran because it was theirs all along as frozen assets -- plus interest. Nobody is talking about Obama's bigger gift to Iran: dropping the investigation of its drugs and for terrorism program.

President Donald John Trump said on Wednesday, "Iran's hostilities substantially increased after the foolish Iran nuclear deal was signed in 2013 and they were given $150 billion, not to mention $1.8 billion in cash. Instead of saying, 'Thank you,' to the United States, they chanted, 'Death to America.' In fact, they chanted 'Death to America' the day the agreement was signed. Then Iran went on a terror spree funded by the money from the deal and created hell in Yemen, Syria, Lebanon, Afghanistan and Iraq."

News Busters reported, "Well, that triggered the liberal media who sprinted to the former President’s defense. CBS White House correspondent Weijia Jiang actually suggested it was unfounded for Trump to make the connection. And NBC ran to Obama-era liar Susan Rice for backup.

"Jiang began her CBS Evening News report by snapping at how Trump suggested the American people should be happy with how things had turned out. 'But critics say there is no reason to celebrate, especially because tonight, U.S. intelligence agencies warn more threats may be looming,' she chided.

"Later responding to a soundbite of Trump talking about the need for Iran to change its behavior, Jiang decried: 'He blamed that behavior on the unfounded claim that the Obama-era nuclear agreement enabled Iran to build up its military arsenal.'

"The assertion Trump’s claim was unfounded was laughable if the situation wasn’t so serious."

Our Democrat Influenced Corrupt Organizations running network news are devoted to their party. Rather than support America in its fight against Iranian terrorism, the media awaits the day when the Great Democrat Pumpkin rises from the patch and retakes the White House.

Meanwhile, though, most of the media has ignored a larger scandal called Project Cassandra. Politico was the exception.

Politico reported, "The campaign, dubbed Project Cassandra, was launched in 2008 after the Drug Enforcement Administration amassed evidence that Hezbollah had transformed itself from a Middle East-focused military and political organization into an international crime syndicate that some investigators believed was collecting $1 billion a year from drug and weapons trafficking, money laundering and other criminal activities."

The investigation began under President George Walker Bush. Obama stopped it as a favor to his friends, the ayatollahs.

The story said investigators "followed cocaine shipments, some from Latin America to West Africa and on to Europe and the Middle East, and others through Venezuela and Mexico to the United States. They tracked the river of dirty cash as it was laundered by, among other tactics, buying American used cars and shipping them to Africa. And with the help of some key cooperating witnesses, the agents traced the conspiracy, they believed, to the innermost circle of Hezbollah and its state sponsors in Iran.

"But as Project Cassandra reached higher into the hierarchy of the conspiracy, Obama administration officials threw an increasingly insurmountable series of roadblocks in its way, according to interviews with dozens of participants who in many cases spoke for the first time about events shrouded in secrecy, and a review of government documents and court records. When Project Cassandra leaders sought approval for some significant investigations, prosecutions, arrests and financial sanctions, officials at the Justice and Treasury departments delayed, hindered or rejected their requests."

By definition, presidents cannot commit obstruction of justice. The Constitution makes the president the federal government's chief executive officer. As CEO, he gives the agencies their marching orders. There is no such thing as an independent agency.

But the press can shine the spotlight on those decisions. Ignoring the demise of Project Cassandra is more evidence of media protection of the most corrupt presidency ever.

  3. What happened to the "pallets of money" imagery?

    So vivid!

    So tailor made for the ignorance of the Trump cult.

    Seems like a shame to abandon a good narrative over trifling matters such as veracity.

    Why start now?

    2. You need to give us your sources, Susan.

    3. Don't bother the troll with sources BJ, it's too busy desperately seeking the unrequited attention of this blog's author, and watching porn on his mummy's computer in her basement in between the time it dumps its buckets of diarrhea here.

      Lonely idiot losers like it don't use sources.

      Oh, and is the glee in the idiot's bucket of diarrhea obvious or what? Why? Because it was right on ONE point about the Iran money, which Don acknowledged with this post. Good for Don. Now, where are ALL the multitude of corrections the stupid hypocritical dishonest troll has issued when it has been wrong so many times? That's a rhetorical question of course, because the lonely idiot loser never issues any, even though it has brought falsehoods by the hundreds, and they have been pointed out and corrected by many posters, yet nothing from the lonely idiot loser. Can everyone post together: HYPOCRITE? The stupid hypocritical dishonest troll has absolutely NO standing to judge anyone at this blog about acknowledgements, or corrections. Thus, the stupid hypocritical dishonest troll needs to STFU about pointing out ANYONE's acknowledgements or corrections here until it recognizes its own mistakes when they are identified, and then acknowledge and correct itself. But, we know that'll never happen, right lonely idiot loser troll?

      PS you stupid hypocritical troll, Don will not acknowledge you, because he won't punch down to a lonely idiot loser like you, so, suck it loser. Suck it good. Suck it hard, and STFU.

    4. Notice how leftists love projecting their own faults onto their opponents?

      "The Trump cult"? Evan Thomas was gushing that Obama was hard to report on objectively because "He's like a god!"

      David Brooks couldn't get over the crease in his trousers.

      At most political rallies, they yell and sing. At Obama's, they chanted.

      Trump is an extraordinary man. Like all extraordinary men, he has faults. At times he's aggressively mean and disrespectful. Winston Churchill drank too much. So did Ulysses S. Grant. Martin Luther King was unfaithful to his wife.

      But, as Lincoln told his whining generals about Grant, "Find out what brand of whiskey Grant drinks and send some to my other generals."

      And also, "I can't spare this man; he fights."

      In other words, sweetie, we're conservatives. We are not leftists. We don't worship politics, and we don't worship politicians. We revere statesmen. We reserve our worship for the Lord, and thank Him for those He sends to help His people out.

      President Trump may or may not be a believer. I don't know. But, as detailed in the Book of Esther, in the Old Testament, the Lord will use non-believers for His own purposes. He used Cyrus, King of Persia, to save His people.

      PDJT is not my Lord; he is only my Lord's answer to prayer.

    5. The cash was transferred to Democrats via Ukraine.

      Delete
    6. Cash is fungible, it may be used anywhere for anything. Common sense tells us that the money went into the pockets of the corrupt mullahs and the leftovers were used for the military and the nuke program. It's obvious that none of the funds were used to improve the lives of the vast majority of the Iranian people.

  5. It's also time the media admitted the US didn't owe Iran a dime. Iran's claim was DISMISSED by an international tribunal in July, 2009 - when Obama was in office.

  7. Far as I'm concerned, the United States is at war with Iran when our embassy was stormed in 1979.

  8. Project Cassandra was an appropriate name. The truth was exposed but no one believed (or, rather, did anything about it). - Elric

  9. As I recall, an International Court ruled the money did NOT need to be returned to Iran.
    That was totally voluntary by the Obama Admin. Plus, no Congressional approval ... plus side deals like granting US citizenship to the kids of Iranian leaders.

    Thanks for beginning with this as it told me this piece would be replete with the usual run of the mill neocon propaganda

    1. Lol Obama was a hardcore neocon as well. Most neocon bashers don't find much daylight between Bush and Obama. I think that's taking it far but it's consistent with their worldview.
      Obama tried war with Iran i.e stuxnet but bungled it so he tried appeasement instead which is his default setting.

      You are not a Paleo but just a leftist shill masquerading as an isolationist.

    2. When I read all about the Stuxnet attack, one thing concerned me deeply. That was, the virus was activated while the plant was in a non-operating / testing mode. The virus was devastatingly effective and left plant operators totally helpless. Only minor damage was reported. This was because the plant was not operating! Had it been operating, from all accounts, it would have resulted in catastrophic failure of the plant. Obama chose to have the virus activate at the time when it would to the LEAST damage to the nuclear reactor.

      With a virus attack like this, you get only one chance. Obama saved the Iranians and purposely ruined the Stuxnet attack, and put the regime on high alert to watch out for similar types of attacks.

      If we had a real leader in charge, the Iranians would be busy cleaning up a nuclear waste site to this day instead of killing it's neighbors and building nuclear weapons.
