Iran hails Sweden’s embrace, feminists are right there with approval

Apparently Sweden and their feminists are not concerned with the primitive treatment of women including stoning, nor the Iranian government and its potential nukes. Apparently not concerned with it being a sponsor of terrorism throughout the world that no doubt will land in Sweden. Of course Sweden will support Iran with technology and whatever. That’s the way they roll. A bit of a history lesson about Sweden.

During the invasion of Scandinavia, Sweden kept neutral, but because much of their income was generated by exporting iron, they continued to sell it to Nazi Germany. Sweden would not help Finland fight off the Soviet attack,

Swedish Prime Minister Stefan Lofven has visited Tehran to discuss important economic and political issues. Iran’s supreme leader praised the Scandinavian country’s foreign policy.

Lofven’s visit was greeted with praise from Iran’s supreme leader, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, who hailed the positive relationship between the two countries during a meeting with the Swedish premier in Tehran.

The Swedish prime minister also met with Iranian President Hassan Rouhani, who hailed the “moderation” in Sweden’s foreign policy, including the government’s support of the nuclear deal reached between Tehran and several Western powers in 2015.

Rouhani said on Twitter that the two countries were determined to improve economic ties. In addition to economic matters, Lofven was also in Iran to discuss cooperation on various other issues, including science and technology, higher education and research.

Obama’s coverup of the dirty stinking Iranian deal deepens

The grimy Iran deal that Kerry and Obama foisted upon us only gets more sinister as the Obama bucks any an all investigations as to what the deal is. Earlier AG Lynch ‘pleads Fifth’ on secret Iran payments gave us a clue that the number of individuals involved runs deep. Now we are approving the sale of planes to Iran. My thought? Blackmail. We have  Iranian born Jarrett, but the lynchpin in the whole affair was Kerry who was so desperate to cut a deal even the blind could see the pandering.

Is Kerry being blackmailed with his Iranian family ties?

Secretary of State John Kerry exposed a secret that journalists and academics have been agonizing over for the past six weeks: the fact that his daughter has married an Iranian-American who has extensive family ties to Iran.

“I am proud of the Iranian-Americans in my own family, and grateful for how they have enriched my life,” Kerry said in the official statement. Kerry also said he was “strongly committed to resolving” the differences between the United States and the Islamic Republic of Iran, “to the mutual benefit of both of our people.”

“But what if the regime simply decides to round up Nahed’s family members and torture them? Or sends its goons to visit them at home? Or exerts some form of more subtle pressure on them that gets no publicity, and then makes it known they want the United States to release Iranians jailed in the United States on terrorism charges or for attempting to procure weapons technology or military spare parts”?

Since its inception, the FBI has vetted U.S. government officials involved in national security issues, and it generally won’t grant clearances to individuals who are married to nationals of an enemy nation or have family members living in that country, for fear of divided loyalties or, more simply, blackmail.

But I digressed. Back to the latest buzz on Iran:

Senior Obama administration officials in their final days in office are seeking to cover up key details of the Iran nuclear deal from Congress, according to documents and sources who spoke to the Washington Free Beacon about continued efforts by the White House to block formal investigations into secret diplomacy with Tehran that resulted in a $1.7 billion cash payment by the United States.

As leading members of Congress petition the Obama administration for answers about what many describe as a $1.7 billion “ransom” payment to Iran, Obama administration officials are doubling down on their refusal to answer questions about the secret negotiations with Iran that led to this payment.

And the Planes?

The United States said on Tuesday it had issued a second license to France’s Airbus to sell commercial planes to Iran Air, bringing Iran’s flag carrier a step closer to receiving new Western jets under last year’s deal to ease sanctions.

Although Airbus is based in France, it must have U.S. approval to sell planes to Iran because at least 10 percent of the aircraft’s components are American-made. Tehran provisionally ordered more than 100 jets each from Airbus and Boeing this year.

In a letter to the United Nations Security Council on Tuesday, Israeli U.N. Ambassador Danny Danon accused Iran of using commercial airline flights to ship weapons to Lebanese Shi’ite Muslim group Hezbollah. More at Free Beacon

AG Lynch ‘pleads Fifth’ on secret Iran payments

While we watch Hillary gaze into the abyss of server hell, our gal Loretta has herself in a boatload of troubles. It seems that the loot that found its way to Iran for who knows what purpose came under her purview. Taking a page from Hillary, pleading the Fifth and otherwise keeping one’s mouth shut is best. I chose this topic for the corruption story of the day:

ag-lynch

Attorney General Loretta Lynch is declining to comply with an investigation by leading members of Congress about the Obama administration’s secret efforts to send Iran $1.7 billion in cash earlier this year, prompting accusations that Lynch has “pleaded the Fifth” Amendment to avoid incriminating herself over these payments, according to lawmakers and communications exclusively obtained by the Washington Free Beacon.

Sen. Marco Rubio (R., Fla.) and Rep. Mike Pompeo (R., Kan.) initially presented Lynch in October with a series of questions about how the cash payment to Iran was approved and delivered.

In an Oct. 24 response, Assistant Attorney General Peter Kadzik responded on Lynch’s behalf, refusing to answer the questions and informing the lawmakers that they are barred from publicly disclosing any details about the cash payment, which was bound up in a ransom deal aimed at freeing several American hostages from Iran.

The response from the attorney general’s office is “unacceptable” and provides evidence that Lynch has chosen to “essentially plead the fifth and refuse to respond to inquiries regarding [her] role in providing cash to the world’s foremost state sponsor of terrorism,” Rubio and Pompeo wrote on Friday in a follow-up letter to Lynch, according to a copy obtained by the Free Beacon.

Bill Clinton gets man freed from Iranian jail, money flows to the Foundation

Earlier posts I opined that the second of the two FBI investigations, that being the investigation of the Clinton’s and their Foundation was the more likely to snag them. Here we have a prime example, Teneo Holdings, Band and Cooper- two of Bill’s body men are knee-deep in the scam. By the way, Huma Abedin was on the payroll of Teneo at the same time she worked as a State employee and that too is under investigation. Earlier posts: Will Bill Clinton’s Butt Boys Cooper and Band take down the Clinton Empire? and Forget Hillary Clinton. Is it Bill Clinton in the cross hairs of the FBI? .

Daily Caller:

Just before an Iranian-American businessman was freed from jail in Iran in Oct. 2010, his son met with Bill Clinton and also made the first of what would become more than $1 million in donations to the Clinton Foundation.

Sources tell The Daily Caller that Nima Taghavi, who owns businesses in California, grew impatient in 2010 with negotiations to secure his father Reza’s release from an Iranian prison, and so he turned to the former president for help.

To arrange the meeting with Clinton, Taghavi first contacted Doug Band, who worked as Clinton’s “body man,” has counseled the Clinton Foundation, and co-founded Teneo Holdings, a consulting group that Clinton advised.

Michelle Obama celebrates Iran’s Nowruz Holiday

In an obvious attempt to appease Iran as wells as her husband’s apparent desperation to empower Iran with nuclear capability, Michelle Obama recently hosted Nowruz, an Iranian spring festival which marks the beginning of the Persian New Year, at the White House.

The Obama’s have not yet revealed if they’ll be invited to celebrate “Death To America” Day in Iran…

So our First Lady is celebrating the New Year of a country that commits atrocities like killing gays and treating women like sub-human species. Sure! Let’s celebrate horrific place and its customs…Iranian born Valeria Jarrett must be so happy!

White-House-Nowruz

White-House-Nowruz

As White House Dossier points out:

There are somewhere between half a million and a million Iranian Americans in the United States, about the same as the number of Lithuanian Americans. Where’s the White House Lithuanian American holiday celebration?

No, this is not about Nowruz. This is a clear attempt to appease the Iran government, and it is exactly what is wrong with President Obama’s approach to Iran and the rest of the world. It explains why Iran has been able to extract a deal that will allow the centrifuges to keep spinning and, ultimately, a bomb to be built.

What tyrants respond to is strength. Malice. Threats. Force. They do not love, and they do not seek to be loved.

When Qadaffi gave up his nuclear program after Bush invaded Iraq, it wasn’t because Laura Bush celebrated a Libyan holiday.

Our attempts to placate evildoers with something like a Nowruz festival invite only contempt. It confirms for them that we are weak, and that they can take advantage of us.

We are, as these things go, a nice people. Some of us, mostly on Left, tend to think the rest of the world is nice too. It’s not.

It is, actually, no more than self-indulgence to assume others are like us. It is hubris. The hubris of someone like Obama.

The Iranians understand our leaders much better than our leaders understand them. They know Obama will never attack them. And they are negotiating accordingly.

Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu, who understands the neighborhood in which he lives, came here to warn America. Obama didn’t even bother to watch the speech. Because it contradicts his world view.

One day, quite possibly, hundreds of thousand or even millions will die because of the deal Obama is about to strike. Those people may be Americans.

Because Peace through Weakness is a deadly way of doing business.

Could this be happening?

Is Kerry being blackmailed with his Iranian family ties?

From 2015- move it up to about 1:30 to see her joyous because she is now proud to be an American.

Clinton Buddies Up With Pro-Tehran Lobby For Fundraiser

Yet to hear a media report of our gal Hillary sucking up to pro-Iranian groups just for some cash. Tone deaf indeed as she still rakes in money from Wall Street. So why not Iran? We can only imagine how much the Clinton Global Initiative got from this group, her money laundering enterprise. For Hillary, Charity begins with the Clinton Foundation

For Hillary, charity begins at home. Little reported with the Friday dump of her tax returns is the fact that $14 million of her “charity” went to her own foundation. So a tax break for herself.

But I digressed:

Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton was scheduled to host a fundraiser this past weekend with key members of a pro-Tehran lobbying outfit that is working to kill new anti-terrorism laws that would prevent Iranians from travelling to the United States without first obtaining a visa permit.

Clinton participates in a Menlo Park fundraiser on Sunday hosted by Twitter executive Omid Kordestani and his wife Gisel Hiscock, as well as National Iranian American Council (NIAC) board member Lily Sarafan and Noosheen Hashemi, who serves on the board of the pro-Iran advocacy group Ploughshares, a major funder of pro-Iran efforts.

NIAC, an advocacy group formed by Iranian-Americans to work against the pro-Israel community, has long been accused of lobbying on Iran’s behalf against sanctions and other measures that could harm the Islamic Republic’s interest.

Ploughshares, which partners with NIAC, is joining the White House in efforts to pressure the Jewish community and others to back the recently implemented Iran nuclear agreement, the Free Beacon reported.

Congress passed the legislation in response to recent disclosures exposing flaws in the U.S. visa waiver program, which eases travel to the U.S. with 38 partner countries.

Lawmakers said the legislation is meant to ensure that individuals with potential ties to terrorism will be detected before entering the United States.

U.S. paid Iran ransom for U.S hostages from tax payers funds

Ransom. That is what we paid to Iran for the release of five U.S. prisoners. It was not bad enough that the exchange was so one sided. We had to throw in cash as well. So now it is open season on hostage taking. North Korea just caught on to the act. US Student Detained in North Korea Over “Anti-State” Acts ABC News

The Obama administration is facing criticism for paying Iran $1.7 billion in taxpayer funds as part of what critics described as a “ransom” bound up in a controversial hostage trade designed to secure the release of five Americans long held by Iran, according to conversations with administration officials and experts critical of the agreement.

The payment came just prior to the release by Iran of five U.S. prisoners, prompting claims from some that the $1.7 billion was a ransom payment. Senior officials in Iran have said the money was provided as part of the prisoner swap.

The administration denies the issues are tied and insists that the money was provided to settle a decades-old dispute with Iran over the United States’ refusal to make good on a deal to provide the country military equipment following the 1979 Islamic revolution.

Under the terms of the settlement, Iran will be paid a $400 million balance, plus an additional $1.3 billion in interest from the taxpayer fund, according to a State Department official.

And as far as the the release of Billions to Iran recently?

Meanwhile, Secretary of State John Kerry said money from the Iran deal could end up in the hands of Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps.

“I think that some of [the $55 billion] will end up in the hands of the IRGC or of other entities, some of which are labeled terrorists,” Kerry said.
