Obama Regime Accused Of Misleading Congress On Cash Release To Iran

Obama Regime Accused Of Misleading Congress On Cash Release To Iran

The Obama administration faces accusations it has been misleading Congress about the amount and destination of sanctions relief being provided to Iran as part of last summer’s nuclear agreement, according to lawmakers and congressional sources who expressed anger at the administration over a range of contradictory facts being offered about the payouts.

Secretary of State John Kerry came under scrutiny last week after saying in a statement that Iran has received only about $3 billion in sanctions relief to date—a figure far smaller than the $100 billion estimate administration officials had previously said Iran would receive under the deal. It also contradicts statements from top Iranian officials that they had regained control of $100 billion in foreign reserves unfrozen under the deal.

I sure hope Kerry and Obama burn in hell.

STUPID Denver Christian School Drops Crusaders Mascot Because It May Be Offensive To Muslims

Denver Christian School Drops Crusaders Mascot Because It May Be Offensive To Muslims

DENVER – A Denver Christian school is changing its Crusaders mascot because some people think it’s offensive to Muslims.

“In our mission, in light of the command to love our neighbors as ourselves, the crusader was an inconsistent, inappropriate symbol for that mission,” Denver Christian Schools CEO Todd Lanting told KUSA.

After using the Crusaders mascot for 65 of the school’s 100 year history, officials in November began to solicit ideas for a new symbol, and have since narrowed it down to two possibilities: Thunder and Trailblazers.

The problem with the old name is that “a lot of people were concerned about the association with the crusades, a series of wars between Christians and Muslims,” according to the news site.

Lanting insists the change is not an effort to align with political correctness.

“It has nothing to do with political correctness,” he said. “It’s got everything to do with love and empathy for our neighbors.”

Well OK so when a Muslim wants to cut your head of or one of your loved ones I guess that will be OK too. We wouldn't want to bawl out the Muslim for being violent or killing a person, that just would not be polite.

Apparently Trump will more then likely be the nominee of the Republican party. Just have to go day by day and see what happens.

I am just so grateful that I got to vote for Marco Rubio here in Florida, it felt so great to vote for a candidate that was not a Trump, Cruz, Kasich or any of the other ones I would have had to hold my nose to vote for in the primary.

Sound the Alarm: New Obama Regulations Will Push Private Retirement Savings Into Government Accounts

Sound the Alarm: New Obama Regulations Will Push Private Retirement Savings Into Government Accounts


By Katie Pavlich

If you thought Obamacare was terrifying, just wait until you read about what President Obama's regulatory agencies are planning to do with your retirement savings.

According to an alarming report in the Wall Street Journal, government regulators at the Labor Department will be implementing new rules at the end of the year that will eventually force private retirement investments into government accounts. How? By making private investment options, specifically IRAs, too burdensome, a liability and expensive.

President Obama’s regulators aren’t slowing down, alas. And on Wednesday they unveiled another part of their plan to push Americans out of private investment accounts and into government-run plans.

The Department of Labor says its so-called fiduciary rule will make financial advisers act in the best interests of clients. What Labor doesn’t say is that the rule carries such enormous potential legal liability and demands such a high standard of care that many advisers will shun non-affluent accounts. Middle-income investors may be forced to look elsewhere for financial advice even as Team Obama is enabling a raft of new government-run competitors for retirement savings. This is no coincidence.

Labor’s new rule will start biting in January as the President is leaving office. Under the rule, financial firms advising workers moving money out of company 401(k) plans into Individual Retirement Accounts will have to follow the new higher standards. But Labor has already proposed waivers from the federal Erisa law so new state-run retirement plans don’t have the same regulatory burden as private employers do.

Like Obamacare, which made providing private health insurance plans so expensive that major companies dumped employees into the government exchanges, these Obama administration regulations will make retirement savings through private sources so burdensome, it will force employees into government accounts.

Considering how the government has handled Social Security over the years, this is a terrifying scenario that will ultimately lead to 1) individuals saving less for retirement 2) the government raiding retirement accounts to pay for other programs 3) more government dependency.

This jerk Obama keeps gibing his middle finger to everyone in our entire country.

Top General Admitting That Obama Knowingly Armed ISIS!

Top General Admitting That Obama Knowingly Armed ISIS!

A U.S. General has made a shocking revelation saying that early on President Obama knew that ISIS was growing but made a “willful decision” to let the radical terror group grow unmolested and even supplied arms that he knew would go to ISIS.

Former director of the Defense Intelligence Agency Michael Flynn told al Jazeera that Obama knew he was helping ISIS to grow but decided to do it anyway. Flynn spoke of the decision to arm opposition to Syria’s Bashar al-Assad that the administration decided to continue despite warnings that those weapons would fall into the hands of radicals.

HASAN: You are basically saying that even in government at the time you knew these groups were around, you saw this analysis, and you were arguing against it, but who wasn’t listening?

FLYNN: I think the administration.

HASAN: So the administration turned a blind eye to your analysis?

FLYNN: I don’t know that they turned a blind eye, I think it was a decision. I think it was a willful decision.

HASAN: A willful decision to support an insurgency that had Salafists, Al Qaeda and the Muslim Brotherhood?

FLYNN: It was a willful decision to do what they’re doing.

Russian Jet Threatened U.S. Recon Aircraft

Russian Jet Threatened U.S. Recon Aircraft

Barrel rolls over plane in latest Baltic Sea provocation

A Russian fighter jet flew dangerously close to a U.S. RC-135 reconnaissance aircraft on Thursday in the latest military provocation by Moscow over the Baltic Sea, the U.S. European Command said Saturday.

“On April 14, a U.S. Air Force RC-135 aircraft flying a routine route in international airspace over the Baltic Sea was intercepted by a Russian Su-27 in an unsafe and unprofessional manner,” said Navy Capt. Danny Hernandez.

“This intercept comes shortly after the unsafe Russian encounters with USS Donald Cook,” he added. “There have been repeated incidents over the last year where Russian military aircraft have come close enough to other air and sea traffic to raise serious safety concerns, and we are very concerned with any such behavior.”

Hernandez said the U.S. aircraft, a militarized Boeing 707 jet, was operating in international airspace “and at no time crossed into Russian territory.”

“This unsafe and unprofessional air intercept has the potential to cause serious harm and injury to all aircrews involved,” he said. “More importantly, the unsafe and unprofessional actions of a single pilot have the potential to unnecessarily escalate tensions between countries.”

According to Hernandez, the Su-27 carried out “erratic and aggressive maneuvers” by approaching the RC-135 at a high rate of speed from the side.

The Russian jet “then proceeded to perform an aggressive maneuver that posed a threat to the safety of the U.S. aircrew in the RC-135U,” the spokesman said.

“More specifically, the SU-27 closed within 50 feet of the wing-tip of the RC-135 and conducted a barrel roll starting from the left side of the aircraft, going over the top of the aircraft and ended up to the right of the aircraft,” he said.

The U.S. government is protesting all the incidents this week to the Russian government through diplomatic channels, he said.

The RC-135U, an electronic intelligence-gathering aircraft, is normally operated by five air crew and up to 16 electronic warfare officers and six or more regional specialists.

The dangerous aerial incident came two days after a simulated Russian aerial assault against the guided missile destroyer USS Donald Cook in the Baltic Sea. Washington called the simulated assault a military provocation, and said it nearly caused an international shootout.

Two Russian fighter-bombers, identified as Su-24s, made close passes over the Cook, including one jet that came within 30 feet of the warship.

A Navy officer said the buzzing was the most reckless flyover of a U.S. warship by either a Russian or Chinese warplane since the Cold War. “I’ve been in a lot of those situations and I’ve never seen any plane come that close,” the officer said.

The aerial harassment appears to be part of a Russian military campaign of intimidation against the United States and NATO.

Russia is not worried about anything, they can do whatever they want to since Obama is so weak and Putin knows it.

Obama Releases Nine Yemenis From Guantánamo To Saudi Arabia

Obama Releases Nine Yemenis From Guantánamo To Saudi Arabia

All nine men sent to Saudi Arabia Saturday were Yemeni citizens with family now living in the Saudi kingdom. From left, Tariq Ba Odah, 38, born in Yemen; Ahmed Hikmi, 44, born in Yemen; Mansour Muhammed Ali Qatta, 34, born in Taif, Saudi Arabia. Middle row, Abdul Rahman Nasir, 36, born in Yemen; Ali al Raimi, 33, born in Yemen, not shown; Mohammed al Hamiri, 34, born in Yemen. Bottom from left, Ahmed Kuman, 36, born in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia; not shown: Abdul Rahman al Qyati, 40, born in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia; Mashur al Sabri, 38, born in Mecca, Saudi Arabia.

Saudi Arabia on Saturday took in nine Yemeni detainees from Guantánamo, a breakthrough deal with the at-times stubborn oil kingdom that left 80 captives at the downsizing U.S. military detention center in Cuba.

Among those the U.S. Air Force delivered to Saudi was 5-foot-4½ -inch hunger striker Tariq Ba Odah, 38, who gained prominence by asking a federal judge to order his release after he shriveled to 74 pounds despite daily U.S. Navy medical tube feedings.

A view an unoccupied cell during a media tour of an unoccupied cellblock at Camp 6, at the U.S. Navy base at Guantánamo Bay, Cuba, on Tuesday, Feb. 9, 2016 in this photo approved for release by the U.S. military.

Cleared for years, Ba Odah, like the others released, could not go back to Yemen because of a White House policy that forbids repatriations to the poor, violent nation south of Saudi on the tip of the Arabian Peninsula.

But in a turnabout, the Saudi government agreed to take non-citizens from Guantánamo to its rehabilitation program set up to help Saudi jihadists transition back into society. All nine men have relatives living there, according to a U.S. official with knowledge of the deal. In fact, four were born in Saudi to Yemeni parents.

The nine prisoners released this weekend got to Guantánamo in 2002. Several were cleared for release during the George W. Bush presidency. Not one was ever charged with a crime.

The transfer comes a week ahead of President Barack Obama’s trip to Saudi Arabia for a meeting with the leaders of Gulf Cooperation Council countries. With Saturday’s transfer, three GCC countries have taken in 34 Yemenis from Guantánamo for resettlement, answering an appeal from Obama, according to two U.S. government officials, during May’s GCC summit at Camp David. Twenty went to Oman and five to the United Arab Emirates.

Saudis Vow To Sell US Assets If Congress Decides Their Gov’t Was Involved In 9/11

Saudis Vow To Sell US Assets If Congress Decides Their Gov’t Was Involved In 9/11

FOX News

Saudi Arabia has reportedly told the Obama administration and congressional leaders that it will sell billions of dollars in U.S. financial assets if Congress passes a bill to make the Saudi government legally responsible for any role in the 9/11 attacks.

The administration has tried to stop Congress from passing the legislation, a bipartisan Senate bill, since Saudi Foreign Minister Adel al-Jubeir last month told Washington lawmakers his country’s position, according to The New York Times.

Al-Juberi purportedly informed the lawmakers during a trip to Washington that Saudi Arabia would be forced to sell as much as $750 billion in Treasury securities and other American financial assets on the world market, fearing the legislation could become law and U.S. courts would then freeze the assets.

REPORT: Donald Trump still hasn’t paid Veterans groups all the money he raised for them

REPORT: Donald Trump still hasn’t paid Veterans groups all the money he raised for them

Over a month ago we posted an article on how CNN could only account for $800k of the 6 million in donations Trump said he raised when he boycotted the Fox News Debate before Iowa. Since then, what Veterans groups have received has increased, but still over half of the money is missing:


More than two months after Republican presidential front-runner Donald Trump claimed to have raised $6 million for veterans’ charities at a fundraiser held on the eve of the Iowa caucuses, most of the organizations targeted to receive the money have gotten less than half of that amount.

The Wall Street Journal, citing a survey of the 22 groups listed by Trump’s campaign as prospective recipients for the money, reported that 19 organizations had obtained a total of $2.4 million from Trump’s foundation or associates.

Of the three other charities, one declined to disclose how much it had received, another said it needed to submit more paperwork before receiving any money, and the third didn’t respond to questions by the Journal.

Fox Business Network first reported in late February that only a fraction of the pledged donations had made their way to the veterans groups.

Hillary Laughs Off GOP Hope That She Might Be Led Off In Handcuffs, Calls It A ‘Fantasy’

Hillary Laughs Off GOP Hope That She Might Be Led Off In Handcuffs, Calls It A ‘Fantasy’

Hillary Clinton on Friday laughed off as a “fantasy” the Republicans’ hopes that the federal probe into her use of a private email server will lead to her being led off in handcuffs.

“Oh my goodness!” the Democratic front-runner told Matt Lauer in an interview that aired Friday morning on NBC’s “Today” show.

“I know that they live in that world of fantasy and hope because they’ve got a mess on their hands on the Republican side. That is not gonna happen. There is not even the remotest chance that it’s going to happen,” she told Lauer on Thursday in a Bronx diner.

The FBI is still investigating the emails of the former secretary of state — but she dismissed the probe of her homebrew server as a mere “security review.”

“We’re certainly gonna carry on,” she said. “It’s a security review, and there are lots of those that are conducted in our government all the time, and you don’t hear about most of them.

“You’ll hear about this one because it does involve me, so that’s why it gets so much attention.”

Trump's Campaign Manager Corey Lewandowski Called Co-Worker ‘F*cking B*tch,’ Yelled at Subordinate for Visiting Dying Grandma

Corey Lewandowski Called Co-Worker ‘F*cking B*tch,’ Yelled at Subordinate for Visiting Dying Grandma

The Daily Beast

Corey Lewandowski, the embattled manager of Donald Trump’s presidential campaign, was mostly unknown to national political observers before the 2016 elections.

But he is infamous to former co-workers at Americans for Prosperity, some of whom describe him as verbally abusive, unprofessional, and occasionally misogynistic.

And at least one Republican operative who has interacted with him in his current role said much of the same.

Lewandowski was AFP’s New Hampshire state director when he took over Ohio state operations for the Koch-backed advocacy operation in the summer of 2012. Several former AFP employees who worked with Lewandowski at that time describe him as a bully and said they were “flabbergasted” to learn that Lewandowski had gone from AFP to overseeing a presidential campaign.

“He was just a condescending, nasty brutish boor” said Pat Maloney, an Ohio regional field director for AFP when Lewandowski took the reins. “In a position of real power, he would make H.R. Haldeman in the Nixon administration look like a Boy Scout.”

Maloney described Lewandowski’s management style as unusually aggressive, lacing his interactions with employees with expletives and calling individual staff to berate them, even when they were not his direct reports.

When Maloney missed a conference call to attend to his ill grandmother, Lewandowski called him at his grandmother’s beside.

“My grandmother is literally dying, having Last Rites administered and I get a call from Corey chewing me out, asking who the hell did I think I was missing this conference call,” he said.”

While his own dealings with Lewandowski were unpleasant, Maloney said he felt Lewandowski reserved his worst behavior for female employees. “There was definitely a misogynistic streak to this guy,” he said.

Lisa Bast, another Ohio regional field director at the time, said Lewandowski once threatened to “come really down hard” on her if she didn’t get 50 people to attend an AFP event in Akron.

After she missed a 7 a.m. conference call to prepare for the event, her phone rang.

“Corey gets on the phone and defames my character. He called me incompetent, called me a loser,” Bast said. “He called me a f**king b**ch, yelling, ‘I am going to fire your f**king ass!’”

Bast later organized another volunteer event closer to the election, which featured Republican strategist Dick Morris. As a part of the preparations, she had ordered 125 box lunches for volunteers who attended; but when Lewandowski decided the lunch shouldn’t be shared unless the volunteers also made calls for the phone bank, Bast said Lewandowski threw all 125 lunches in the garbage. “Corey said, ‘If they don’t phone bank they’re not getting f**king fed.’”

Former Def. Secretary Robert Gates: Obama 'Double-Crossed' Me (VIDEO)

Former Def. Secretary Robert Gates: Obama 'Double-Crossed' Me

Robert Gates, the Former Defense Secretary under George W. Bush and Barack Obama says he felt President Obama “double-crossed” him during his tenure over budget cuts to the Pentagon.

In a Fox News report Friday that explored the president’s approach to the military, Gates said Obama had promised him that there wouldn’t be any “significant changes” in the defense budget for a while.

When asked by Fox whether Obama kept to his word, Gates replied, “Well I think that began to fray. ‘Fray’ may be too gentle a word.”

According to the report, Gates was told to cut hundreds of billions of dollars from the defense budget after already having slashed it.

“I guess I’d have to say I felt double-crossed,” Gates said. “After all those years in Washington, I was naïve.”

Experts: ISIS Building “Kill Lists’ of Americans Overseas

Experts: ISIS Building “Kill Lists’ of Americans Overseas

The Islamic State is using social media to identify Americans overseas who can be targeted outside of a secure location, experts warned a Senate panel Tuesday.

“One of the emerging tactics that ISIS in particular is trying to use is stalking and killing its foes, especially those who are affiliated with governments,” Daveed Gartenstein-Ross, a senior fellow at the Foundation for Defense of Democracies, told Sen. Joni Ernst, R-Iowa, during a Senate Homeland Security and Government Affairs Committee hearing. “Basically, taking them out of the government sphere, making them individuals who can be tracked.”

Committee Chairman Ron Johnson, R-Wis., convened the hearing to discuss the threat of terrorism following the Brussels bombings last month. The panelists agreed that government personnel in Brussels and at various NATO facilities in Europe are at risk, but also noted the difficulty of providing adequate protection outside of government facilities.

“What some of the followers and adherents of ISIS have tried to do is expose military personnel and their family members with personal data, addresses, etc.,” said Juan Zarate, a former deputy national security adviser under President George W. Bush. “So there is a very real effort underway to at least threaten, if not put at risk, family members and personnel outside the bounds of classic security."

Hillary on NBC: An Unborn Child Does Not Have Constitutional Rights

Hillary Clinton said during an interview on Meet the Press that an "unborn person" does not have rights when asked by moderator Chuck Todd about her abortion stance and whether she believes an "unborn child" has constitutional protections.

"Well, under our laws currently, that is not something that exists. The unborn person doesn't have constitutional rights. Now, that doesn't mean that we don't do everything we possibly can in the vast majority of instances to, you know, help a mother who is carrying a child and wants to make sure that child will be healthy, to have appropriate medical support"

ISIS sympathizers working at Brussels airport

ISIS sympathizers working at Brussels airport

Heat Street Political Reporter Jillian Melchior, Trump Foreign Policy Advisor Walid Phares, Fox News Military Analyst (Ret.) Maj. Gen. Robert Scales and High Noon Strategies President Lisa Boothe on a report about ISIS sympathizers working at the Brussels airport.

As many as 50 ISIS supporters have infiltrated the same Brussels airport where terror attacks occurred last month, working as cleaners, caterers and baggage handlers and positioning themselves for new attacks, the Belgian police union warned in an open letter to the government.

“Even today, there are at least 50 supporters of ISIS who work at the airport,” read the letter from union secretary Alain Peeters to the Belgian Interior Ministry and reported by the Daily Mail. “They have a security badge and have access to the cockpit of a plane.”

Brussels Airport, also known as Brussels-Zaventem Airport, handles more than 23 million passengers per year in the European Union capital. It is still shut down following the March 22 bombings, in which three Islamists fanatics set off suitcase bombs in attacks coordinated with a metro bombing just over an hour later. Some 35 innocent people were killed, and at least one bomber from the airport remains at large.
