U.S. Sent Cash to Iran as Americans Were Freed

WASHINGTON—The Obama administration secretly organized an airlift of $400 million worth of cash to Iran that coincided with the January release of four Americans detained in Tehran, according to U.S. and European officials and congressional staff briefed on the operation afterward.

Wooden pallets stacked with euros, Swiss francs and other currencies were flown into Iran on an unmarked cargo plane, according to these officials. The U.S. procured the money from the central banks of the Netherlands and Switzerland, they said.

The money represented the first installment of a $1.7 billion settlement the Obama administration reached with Iran to resolve a decades-old dispute over a failed arms deal signed just before the 1979 fall of Iran’s last monarch, Shah Mohammad Reza Pahlavi.

The settlement, which resolved claims before an international tribunal in The Hague, also coincided with the formal implementation that same weekend of the landmark nuclear agreement reached between Tehran, the U.S. and other global powers the summer before.

“With the nuclear deal done, prisoners released, the time was right to resolve this dispute as well,” President Barack Obama said at the White House on Jan. 17—without disclosing the $400 million cash payment.

Senior U.S. officials denied any link between the payment and the prisoner exchange. They say the way the various strands came together simultaneously was coincidental, not the result of any quid pro quo.

“As we’ve made clear, the negotiations over the settlement of an outstanding claim…were completely separate from the discussions about returning our American citizens home,” State Department spokesman John Kirby said. “Not only were the two negotiations separate, they were conducted by different teams on each side, including, in the case of The Hague claims, by technical experts involved in these negotiations for many years.”

But U.S. officials also acknowledge that Iranian negotiators on the prisoner exchange said they wanted the cash to show they had gained something tangible.

Sen. Tom Cotton, a Republican from Arkansas and a fierce foe of the Iran nuclear deal, accused President Barack Obama of paying “a $1.7 billion ransom to the ayatollahs for U.S. hostages.”

“This break with longstanding U.S. policy put a price on the head of Americans, and has led Iran to continue its illegal seizures” of Americans, he said.

Since the cash shipment, the intelligence arm of the Revolutionary Guard has arrested two more Iranian-Americans. Tehran has also detained dual-nationals from France, Canada and the U.K. in recent months.

At the time of the prisoner release, Secretary of State John Kerry and the White House portrayed it as a diplomatic breakthrough. Mr. Kerry cited the importance of “the relationships forged and the diplomatic channels unlocked over the course of the nuclear talks.”

Meanwhile, U.S. officials have said they were certain Washington was going to lose the arbitration in The Hague, where Iran was seeking more than $10 billion, and described the settlement as a bargain for taxpayers.

Iranian press reports have quoted senior Iranian defense officials describing the cash as a ransom payment. The Iranian foreign ministry didn’t respond to a request for comment.

The $400 million was paid in foreign currency because any transaction with Iran in U.S. dollars is illegal under U.S. law. Sanctions also complicate Tehran’s access to global banks.

“Sometimes the Iranians want cash because it’s so hard for them to access things in the international financial system,” said a senior U.S. official briefed on the January cash delivery. “They know it can take months just to figure out how to wire money from one place to another.”

The Obama administration has refused to disclose how it paid any of the $1.7 billion, despite congressional queries, outside of saying that it wasn’t paid in dollars. Lawmakers have expressed concern that the cash would be used by Iran to fund regional allies, including the Assad regime in Syria and the Lebanese militia Hezbollah, which the U.S. designates as a terrorist organization.

MULTITRACK DIPLOMACY

July 2012 U.S. and Iran begin secret negotiations in Oman to resolve the nuclear dispute.
September 2013 President Barack Obama has 15-minute phone call with Iranian President Hassan Rouhani.
November U.S., Iran and world powers reach interim nuclear agreement that includes release of $700 million a month in frozen Iranian assets.
November 2014 Swiss invite Iran and U.S. to secret talks aimed at freeing Americans jailed in Tehran.
July 2015 Iran, U.S. and other powers reach landmark nuclear agreement to constrain Tehran’s nuclear program.
Jan. 16, 2016 Iran, U.S. and world powers formally implement nuclear deal.
Jan. 17 White House and State Department simultaneously announce prisoner swap and settlement of financial dispute that awards $1.7 billion to Tehran. Iran announced them separately.
July Iran announces arrest of third Iranian-American, after acknowledging two others held.
The U.S. and United Nations believe Tehran is subsidizing the Assad regime’s war in Syria through cash and energy shipments. Iran has acknowledged providing both financial and military aid to Syrian President Bashar al-Assad and deploying Iranian soldiers there.

But John Brennan, director of the Central Intelligence Agency, said last week that there was evidence much of the money Iran has received from sanctions relief was being used for development projects. “The money, the revenue that’s flowing into Iran is being used to support its currency, to provide moneys to the departments and agencies, build up its infrastructure,” Mr. Brennan said at a conference in Aspen, Colo.

The U.S. and Iran entered into secret negotiations to secure the release of Americans imprisoned in Iran in November 2014, according to U.S. and European officials. Switzerland’s foreign minister, Didier Burkhalter, offered to host the discussions.

The Swiss have represented the U.S.’s diplomatic interests in Iran since Washington closed its embassy in Tehran following the 1979 hostage crisis.

Iranian security services arrested two Iranian-Americans during President Obama’s first term. In July 2014, the intelligence arm of Iran’s elite military unit, the Revolutionary Guard, detained the Washington Post’s Tehran bureau chief, Jason Rezaian, and charged him with espionage.

A fourth Iranian-American was arrested last year. A former Federal Bureau of Investigation agent, Robert Levinson, disappeared on the Iranian island of Kish in 2007. His whereabouts remain unknown.

The Swiss channel initially saw little activity, according to these officials. But momentum shifted after Tehran and world powers forged a final agreement in July 2015 to constrain Iran’s nuclear program in return for the lifting of most international sanctions. A surge of meetings then took place in the Swiss lakeside city of Geneva in November and December.

The U.S. delegation was led by a special State Department envoy, Brett McGurk, and included representatives from the Central Intelligence Agency and Federal Bureau of Investigation, according to U.S. and European officials. The Iranian team was largely staffed by members of its domestic spy service, according to U.S. officials.

The discussions, held at the InterContinental Hotel, initially focused solely on a formula whereby Iran would swap the Americans detained in Tehran for Iranian nationals held in U.S. jails, U.S. officials said. But around Christmas, the discussions dovetailed with the arbitration in The Hague concerning the old arms deal.

The Iranians were demanding the return of $400 million the Shah’s regime deposited into a Pentagon trust fund in 1979 to purchase U.S. fighter jets, U.S. officials said. They also wanted billions of dollars as interest accrued since then.

President Obama approved the shipment of the $400 million. But accumulating so much cash presented a logistical and security challenge, said U.S. and European officials. One person briefed on the operation joked: “You can’t just withdraw that much money from ATMs.”

Mr. Kerry and the State and Treasury departments sought the cooperation of the Swiss and Dutch governments. Ultimately, the Obama administration transferred the equivalent of $400 million to their central banks. It was then converted into other currencies, stacked onto the wooden pallets and sent to Iran on board a cargo plane.

On the morning of Jan. 17, Iran released the four Americans: Three of them boarded a Swiss Air Force jet and flew off to Geneva, with the fourth returning to the U.S. on his own. In return, the U.S. freed seven Iranian citizens and dropped extradition requests for 14 others.

U.S. and European officials wouldn’t disclose exactly when the plane carrying the $400 million landed in Iran. But a report by an Iranian news site close to the Revolutionary Guard, the Tasnim agency, said the cash arrived in Tehran’s Mehrabad airport on the same day the Americans departed.

Revolutionary Guard commanders boasted at the time that the Americans had succumbed to Iranian pressure. “Taking this much money back was in return for the release of the American spies,” said Gen. Mohammad Reza Naghdi, commander of the Guard’s Basij militia, on state media.

Among the Americans currently being held are an energy executive named Siamak Namazi and his 80-year old father, Baqer, according to U.S. and Iranian officials. Iran’s judiciary spokesman last month confirmed Tehran had arrested the third American, believed to be a San Diego resident named Reza “Robin” Shahini.

Friends and family of the Namazis believe the Iranians are seeking to increase their leverage to force another prisoner exchange or cash payment in the final six months of the Obama administration. Mr. Kerry and other U.S. officials have been raising their case with Iranian diplomats, U.S. officials say.

Iranian officials have demanded in recent weeks the U.S. return $2 billion in Iranian funds that were frozen in New York in 2009. The Supreme Court recently ruled that the money should be given to victims of Iranian-sponsored terror attacks.

Members of Congress are seeking to pass legislation preventing the Obama administration from making any further cash payments to Iran. One of the bills requires for the White House to make public the details of its $1.7 billion transfer to Iran.

“President Obama’s…payment to Iran in January, which we now know will fund Iran’s military expansion, is an appalling example of executive branch governance,” said Sen. James Lankford (R., Okla.), who co-wrote the bill. “Subsidizing Iran’s military is perhaps the worst use of taxpayer dollars ever by an American president.”

Texas Makes Huge Move Against Black Lives Matter

BLK

Texas Gov. Greg Abbott and the Lone Star State lawmakers are cracking down after recent recent attacks carried out against police officers.

Abbott on Monday announced the Police Protection Act, which
 aims to strengthen penalties for crimes committed against police officers.

“At a time when law enforcement officers increasingly come under assault simply because of the job they hold, Texas must send a resolute message that the state will stand by the men and women who serve and protect our communities,” Abbott said in a news release, according to KTBC.
Abbott said that while Texas and the nation continued to mourn the heroes lost in Dallas, it was time for Texans to unite and say, “No more.”

“The men and women in uniform risk their lives every day to protect the public, and it is time we show them the state of Texas has their back,” Abbott said in the release.

“Texas will no longer tolerate disrespect for those who serve, and it must be made to clear to anyone targeting our law enforcement officials that their actions will be met with severe justice.”

The Police Protection Act will extend hate crime protections to law enforcement officers and increase criminal penalties crimes committed against law enforcement.

The act also aims to create a culture of respect for law enforcement that includes organizing a campaign to educate youth on the value police officers bring to their communities.

Currently, assault with bodily injury to a public servant is punishable as a Class A misdemeanor. Under Abbott’s proposal, the penalty against such an assault would increase to a 2nd degree felony.

The measure has been met with approval form several law enforcement organizations. Ray Hunt, President of the Houston Police Officers Association, said he was encouraged by the legislation. Ron Pinkston, President, Dallas Police Association, said the Dallas Police Association applauded the governor. Grimes County Sheriff Donald Sowell, president of the Sheriff’s Association of Texas, said his organization was pleased to see the governor move to protect law enforcement officers.

OBAMA ACCUSES GOP OF FAVORING AMERICANS OVER ILLEGAL ALIENS!

a-obama-employment-1024x576

na·tiv·ism
noun \ˈnā-ti-ˌvi-zəm\
1
: a policy of favoring native inhabitants as opposed to immigrants
2
: the revival or perpetuation of an indigenous culture especially in opposition to acculturation

Seriously Mr. Obama?

And how is this a bad thing? Remember who won big in 2014?

Oh, yes indeed, the foreigners and immigrants are far more concerned about America than Americans[sic]…Next, Obama will be accusing individuals of having more self-interest in themselves, than other people….

Does this guy actually believe, at this point, anything that comes out of his own mouth?
Next Obama will be accusing GOP members of being more concerned over their families than strangers….

In an pre-recorded interview with National Public Radio (NPR) broadcast on December 29, President Obama posed the rhetorical question: “By me having taken these [executive] actions, does that spur those voices in the Republican Party who I think genuinely believe immigration is good for our country? Does it spur them to work once again with Democrats and my administration to get a reasonable piece of legislation done?”

“Or does it simply solidify what I do think is a nativist trend in parts of the Republican Party?”

Obama was responding to a question asked by Steve Inskeep, one of the hosts of NPR’s Morning Edition program. After the president stated that he thought Speaker of the House John Boehner (R-Ohio) and incoming Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) were responding to those who looked to them “to get things done” and that “the fact that we disagree on one thing shouldn’t prohibit us from getting progress on the areas where there’s some overlap,” Inskeep asked:

Well, let me figure out if there’s overlap on immigration. In an interview in August, you described the Republican Party as being “captive to nativist elements of the party.”

What did you mean by that, and can you work with people who you think of in that way?

Obama replied, in part:

Well, on immigration, I probably can’t; Steve King [R-Iowa] and I fundamentally disagree on immigration….

I think the Republican Party contains a lot of legislators who recognize that; and we know that because those folks voted for a comprehensive bill in the Senate that in many ways was more generous than I was able to offer through executive action.

So, the question then becomes, by me having taken these actions, does that spur those voices in the Republican Party who I think genuinely believe immigration is good for our country? Does it spur them to work once again with Democrats and my administration to get a reasonable piece of legislation done?

Or does it simply solidify what I do think is a nativist trend in parts of the Republican Party? And if it’s the latter, then probably we’re not going to get much more progress done, and it’ll be a major debate in the next presidential election.

I think that if a Republican lawmaker was sitting here, he might say, “Wait a minute. I’m not captive to nativist elements. I have actual concerns, and you’re not addressing them.”

Well, the problem is what are those concerns and how is it that I’m not addressing them?… They’d have to identify for me specifically what those concerns are other than some sense that, you know, these folks just shouldn’t be here.

The original interview to which Inskeep referred was with John Micklethwait, editor-in-chief of The Economist, and Edward Carr, the newspaper’s foreign editor, and was published in The Economist for August 2.

When the interviewers asked the president to expand on his criticism of the business community for believing that “the only responsibility that a corporate CEO has is to his shareholders,”(to which the interviewers countered, “Every CEO nowadays is involved in nine different social responsibility things”) Obama replied:

There’s a huge gap between the professed values and visions of corporate CEOs and how their lobbyists operate in Washington…. My challenge to them consistently is, is your lobbyist working as hard on those issues as he or she is on preserving that tax break that you’ve got? And if the answer is no, then you don’t care about it as much as you say.

Obama then shifted gears and focused his criticism away from corporate CEOs and toward Republicans:

Now, to their credit, I think on an issue like immigration reform, for example, companies did step up. And what they’re discovering is the problem is not the regulatory zealotry of the Obama administration; what they’re discovering is the dysfunction of a Republican Party that knows we need immigration reform, knows that it would actually be good for its long-term prospects, but is captive to the nativist elements in its party.

Since Obama seems to enjoy throwing the “nativist” term around when criticizing those in the Republican Party who oppose his plans for “immigration reform” (which, far from reforming our “broken” immigration system, always includes granting amnesty to millions of illegal immigrants), it might be worthwhile to consider the origins of the term in its historical context.

The anti-immigrant philosophy often called nativism was most visible in the United States during the 19th century, the peak years for immigration into the United States. Unlike today, almost all of the immigration during that period was legal. And since the nation was relatively underpopulated during those years in comparison to its rapid growth in territory, opposition to immigrants was motivated by factors other than economics and competition for jobs.

Nativists were active in New York as early as 1843, operating in the American Republican Party, which became the Native American Party in 1845. This party shared leadership with the more widely known Know-Nothing Party. The anti-immigrant stance of the Know-Nothings was based not on the fact that the immigrants threatened America’s economy, but because most Irish and many German immigrants were Catholic. Among the most famous activists in the Know-Nothing movement was the inventor Samuel Morse, a rabid anti-Catholic who wanted to forbid Catholics from holding public office, and worked to change immigration laws to limit immigration from Catholic countries.

As immigration patterns shifted in the late 19th and early 20th centuries, and more immigrants came from southern and Eastern Europe, anti-Catholicism gave way to anti-Italian, anti-Polish, and anti-Jewish sentiments. These prejudices eventually became institutionalized in immigration legislation, culminating in the Immigration Act of 1924, which limited the annual number of immigrants who could be admitted from any country to two percent of the number of people from that country who were already living in the United States in 1890. The act effectively reduced the flow of immigrants from Italy, Poland, and the rest of Eastern Europe — most of whom were Catholics, Orthodox, or Jews — to a trickle.

OUR SICK PRESIDENT OBAMA WARNS CONGRESS THAT CRACKING DOWN ON TERRORISM WOULD VIOLATE IRAN NUCLEAR DEAL

iran112
Less than one month after the San Bernardino massacre that left 14 people dead at the hands of two radical Islamists, the Obama administration is warning Congress that their efforts to tighten the Visa Waiver Program would be a breach of the Iran Nuclear Deal that the administration struck earlier this year.

The Visa Waiver Program allows for citizens of participating countries to travel to the United States without first acquiring a visa as long as their trip is for tourism or business, and it does not exceed 90 days.

The program was called into question after the vetting process of the Obama administration was proven to be inadequate, both in theory and in practice.
FBI Director James Comey, in October, said that the intelligence communities do not have a way to screen terrorists out of incoming refugees and immigrants. He explained that countries like Syria have no stable database with which the Obama administration can access in order to ensure that each person is who they say that they are, and that their intentions are not nefarious.

In addition to the warnings from the FBI, Tashfeen Malik, a Pakistani born immigrant, passed through Obama’s vetting process with flying colors before joining her husband to slaughter American citizens.

Barack Obama has proven that he has no idea who he is letting into the country, and Republicans are trying to curb the incoming swell of people before American communities begin to look like those of Sweden or Germany who are facing similar problems.

Congress is currently considering measures that would restrict the Visa Waiver Program in an effort to reduce the number of terrorists who are using the program as a means of entering the country. There plan is to restrict entry to those who have visited countries that are considered to be terrorist hotbeds. One of those happens to be Iran, and they are not happy.

In response to Congressional measures to restrict the program, Iran has accused Congress of harassment and charges that the actions directly violate the terms of the nuclear agreement between their nation and Obama.

Representative Chris Murphy (D-CT) has said,

“There has been a suggestion because there is an element of the agreement that obligates us to not to take steps that would stop economic relations between other nations and Iran that we could perhaps be in jeopardy of breaching the agreement.”

Iran accuses the measures of violating Iran’s economic relationships with other countries, and therefor will violate the newly made Iran nuclear deal.

This could be double good news for America. Congress may be able keep more terrorists from entering the country, and, at the same time, invalidate Obama’s highly controversial Iran Nuclear Deal in one swoop.

As the country is still trying to put together the pieces of the Dallas ambush of police by Black Lives Matter, one cop says the president OBAMA is to blame.

William Johnson, who runs the National Association of Police Organizations, took to the airwaves to lambast the president’s lack of foresight in his treatment of groups such as Black Lives Matter, stating that their rampant radicalization making violence inevitable while the commander in chief twiddled his thumbs.

“’I think [the Obama’s administration] continued appeasements at the federal level with the Department of Justice, their appeasement of violent criminals, their refusal to condemn movements like Black Lives Matter, actively calling for the death of police officers, that type of thing, all the while blaming police for the problems in this country has led directly to the climate that has made Dallas possible,’ William Johnson, the executive director of the National Association of Police Organizations, said in an interview with Fox on Friday morning.

“‘It’s a war on cops,’ Johnson also said. ‘And the Obama administration is the Neville Chamberlain of this war.’
“Obama on Friday morning strongly condemned the Dallas shootings, which happened at the end of a protest about the killings of two black men by police officers earlier this week, as a ‘vicious, calculated and despicable attack.’”
Barack Obama’s soft stances on several matters of national security have been called into question lately, including this fight to allow Syrian refugees to enter the country unabated, and now this inability to recognize and condemn a hate group when he sees one.
The head of a law enforcement advocacy group lashed out at President Barack Obama in the wake of the Dallas shootings that left five police officers dead, accused the president of carrying out a “war on cops.”
“I think [the Obama administration] continued appeasements at the federal level with the Department of Justice, their appeasement of violent criminals, their refusal to condemn movements like Black Lives Matter, actively calling for the death of police officers, that type of thing, all the while blaming police for the problems in this country has led directly to the climate that has made Dallas possible,” William Johnson, the executive director of the National Association of Police Organizations, said in an interview with Fox on Friday morning.
Story Continued Below

Johnson said although the Thursday night shooting of law enforcement officers reminded him of “the violence in the streets in the 60’s and 70’s,” he pointed out how Obama’s response appeared different than his predecessors.
“I think one of the big differences then was you had governors and mayors and the president — whether it was President Johnson or President Nixon, Republican or Democrat — condemning violence against the police and urging support for the police,” Johnson said. “Today that’s markedly absent. I think that’s a huge difference, and that’s directly led to the climate that allows these attacks to happen.”
“It’s a war on cops,” Johnson also said. “And the Obama administration is the Neville Chamberlain of this war.”
Obama on Friday morning strongly condemned the Dallas shootings, which happened at the end of a protest about the killings of two black men by police officers earlier this week, as a “vicious, calculated and despicable attack.”
“Let’s be clear there are no possible justifications for these attacks or any violence towards law enforcement,” he said from Warsaw, Poland, where he is attending a NATO meeting

On Thursday, before the Dallas shootings, Obama tried to strike a balance as he talked about anger and grief in the African-American community after the latest killings by police and the feeling among some law enforcement officials that Obama has not always supported them.
“To be concerned about these issues is not to be against law enforcement,” he said. ”When people say black lives matter, it doesn’t mean blue lives don’t matter.”
Other law enforcement groups on Friday called for better relationships between cops and their communities.
DC Police Union Secretary Jimmy White admitted there was a clear racial disparity in the criminal justice system, and police officers needed better relationships with their communities.
“To put all the blame on one aspect of the problem is incorrect. You can’t just say it’s only Obama that has created this culture,” White told POLITICO on Friday. “We have to look into communities, into employment, we have to look into everything.”
“It just seems that there could be more effort by our government as far as making sure that the playing field is leveled,” the secretary said.
White also criticized trends on social media like #BlueLivesMatter or #BlackLivesMatter, saying “we focus too much” on labels instead of addressing the community’s needs.
“There is a balance between giving the public what they want and keeping our police officers safe,” he said. “We are hurting as an agency and as a union and we just wish that the events of yesterday did not happen and never happen again. We will grow, we will heal from this, and we will watch each other’s backs.”
Chuck Canterbury, national President of the Fraternal Order of Police, said he would encourage the Department of Justice to investigate the Dallas shooting as a hate crime.
“Nobody should die because of the color of their skin and nobody should die because of the color of the uniform that they’re wearing either,” he said in an interview with NPR on Friday.
Canterbury added that individual officers “are not in control of their training,” pointing out that police in Chicago “have been asking for Taser training for almost eight years.”
“Less-than-lethal methods need to be improved every day. Police officers would like that. Nobody goes to work, pins on a badge or a star and wants to end somebody else’s life,” the FOP president said.

Soros Funding , ‘Black Lives Matter’ Protest Groups – WHY ARE SOROS AND OBAMA TRYING TO DESTROY AMERICA?

Soros Funding Ferguson, ‘Black Lives Matter’ Protest Groups
George-soros-civil-war-website-300x166

by Tad Cronn

In case you’ve wondered why exactly the shooting of Michael Brown in Ferguson, Missouri, became a national news story, it’s not because it reveals any inherent racism in the system.

Billionaire investor Soros speaks at a forum during the annual IMF-World Bank meetings in Washington

Rather, it’s because dedicated, interconnected groups of outside agitators roused their rabble and exploited the gullible media to turn a straightforward shooting of a criminal suspect who attacked a police officer into a national scandal.

Some of the groups that made that happen — such as the Gamaliel Foundation, the Drug Policy Alliance, Make the Road New York and Equal Justice USA, among others — have long been funded by George Soros and his Open Society Foundations, according to the Washington Times.

By looking at OSF tax records, the Times discovered that in the most recent year for which records are available alone, Soros gave $33 million to radical groups that worked to keep Ferguson whipped up and on the front pages across the country.

U.S. director of OSF programs Kenneth Zimmerman admitted to the Times that Soros money had funded groups in Ferguson, but he washed his hands of the ensuing damage, saying OSF had not ordered the groups to act as they did.

According to Zimmerman, OSF has been “helping groups combine policy, research, data collection with community organizing” since the 1990s.

Representatives of the Soros-funded groups were bused into Ferguson in August, the Times reported, and were still agitating there as late as last month.

Although many different groups were involved, the ones funded by Soros organized themselves into cooperative networks, often linking to each others’ websites, sharing research and churning out editorials sent to the media to keep Ferguson in the national eye.

According to the Times report, the groups were especially keen to capitalize on any development that could reflect badly on conservatives, and among their accomplishments was the popularization of the “Black Lives Matter” hashtag on Twitter and manipulation of opinions through Facebook campaigns.

Zimmerman denies any direct involvement in the violence and destruction of Ferguson and other cities where protests have been inspired. “The incidents, whether in Staten Island, Cleveland or Ferguson, were spontaneous protests — we don’t have the ability to control or dictate what others say or choose to say,” Zimmerman said.

There may not have been a direct order, but the smart money would bet there was a wink and a nod, followed by copious attaboys when the groups’ seditious plans came to fruition.

Without a doubt, these groups were funded by Soros precisely for their ability to serve the purpose they achieved, raising a mob and wreaking havoc. They didn’t need a direct order to do the job; they had $33 million worth of motivation and encouragement.

People were injured and lost their livelihoods in the violence spawned in Ferguson. In the national movement Ferguson inspired, police officers lost their lives.

As the nation seeks justice for these outrages, it should be taking a good, hard look at the man who is most responsible for feeding the beast.

Obama’s Incitement Speech Results in Dallas War Zone: 11 Cops Shot – 5 Dead in Coordinated Attack – WHY IS HE DESTROYING AMERICA?

BY PAMELA GELLER
Obama’s racist campaign of division and discord exploded tonight in Dallas, Texas, just hours after he made a hate speech inciting to violence. Obama sprang into action, exploiting two unrelated incidents earlier this week involving controversial fatal shootings by cops in Louisiana and Minnesota. We don’t know what happened in Baton Rouge when Alton Sterling was shot by police (Sterling was armed). Or the disturbing video of Philando Castile in the aftermath of a police shooting in Minnesota. But we don’t know the whole story. But Obama sprang into action and ginned up the hate ….

Obama: “what’s clear is that these fatal shootings are not isolated incidents. They are symptomatic of the broader challenges within our criminal justice system, the racial disparities that appear across the system year after year, and the resulting lack of trust that exists between law enforcement and too many of the communities they serve.”
No, Mr. President, it is not clear. After the evidence was presented, the police shootings in Ferguson and Baltimore were clearly justified, and it was clear that the police officers involved had been libeled and unjustly ruined. But that was irrelevant. These terrible incidents were merely a tool by vicious agitators to advance a war against America. Targeting police is targeting society. The thin blue line is what stands between civilization and anarchy. Remove the blue line and it’s all-out war. And that is what the supremacist Black Lives Matter terror group is plotting to do — Dallas was the first massive strike.

Obama: “When incidents like this occur, there’s a big chunk of our citizenry that feels as if, because of the color of their skin, they are not being treated the same, and that hurts, and that should trouble all of us,” Mr. Obama said in a statement on Thursday after arriving in Warsaw for a NATO summit.”

Obama hosts Black Lives Matter leaders at the White House.

Tonight’s wholesale slaughter of police officers in Dallas was an ambush — a well planned, well orchestrated attack. The snipers triangulated their shots. It was an act of war. The situation is still ongoing — 5 police officers dead, 6 fighting for their lives in city hospitals.

The same police officers being protested against ran towards the gunfire trying to save lives.

Black Lives Matter marches are ugly, racist and violent. What’s planned for the next BLM march on July 9th?

Here is raw video of one of the snipers. AK-47s, body armor, kevlar, military garb =- war.

CNBC: Eleven officers were shot by two snipers, who opened fire from elevated positions in a coordinated attack after a rally in Dallas, Texas. The rally was being held to protest the deaths of two black men this week at the hands of police.

At the press conference held close to 2 a.m. ET, Dallas Police Chief David Brown said a suspect, who was holed up in a second-floor garage in the city’s downtown area, was exchanging gunfire with police and “not being very cooperative.”
“The suspect we’re negotiating with … has told our negotiators that the end is coming and he’s going to hurt and kill more of us, meaning law enforcement, and that there are bombs all over the place and downtown, so we’re being very careful with our tactics, so we don’t put our officers in harm’s way, or the citizens,” Brown said.
UPDATE: The final suspect involved in the stand-off has shot himself.

He said a woman had been taken into custody after she was observed by police carrying a camouflaged bag, which she put into a car that then sped off. The vehicle was stopped by police and they were currently questioning two occupants, Brown said.

Terror groups like ISIS and American terror-tied groups like Hamas-CAIR support and agitate for the Black Lives Matter movement. A Black Lives Matter activist has put out a new flyer on “proper riot gear” in both English and Arabic (but not Spanish, French, Russian, etc).
ISIS sign at a Black Lives Matter march in Ferguson:
Despite the widespread myth of the United States being the land of freedom, liberty, and lasting hope, it’s in fact a land of injustice, intolerance, and institutionalized racism. For the African-American community in particular, the United States has always been a land of historical injustice, and a society founded upon racial bigotry.

Black people are often disproportionately targeted by law enforcement agencies and are subjected to racial profiling and police brutality. Such institutionalized racism manifests itself in the form of mass incarceration of young black men and the racial disparities of wealth and living conditions across the United States.

With racism deeply entrenched in every part of American society, the highly celebrated notion of the American dream has become for many African-Americans just that — a dream that will never materialize. For as long as you are Black, you will always be considered sub-human…to the White man, who’s determined to maintain a system of White supremacy.
After the video repeats the Black Lives Matter messaging and tells black Americans that they are oppressed victims, the video makes an explicit pitch to black Americans: become Muslim and follow sharia law.

To the millions of oppressed Black people living in the United States, however, there is an alternative. That alternative is Islam. We invite you to a religion that guarantees you your rights, where neither the White has precedence over the Black, nor the Black over the White, except by virtue of faith.

For Islamic shari’a is not based on a racist ideology, nor does it endorse a social hierarchy based upon biological differences.
President Obama on the Fatal Shootings of Alton Sterling and Philando Castile
July 7, 2016: Today, President Obama posted a message on Facebook on the deaths of Alton Sterling and Philando Castile.

Update: This evening, President Obama delivered a statement on the fatal shootings in Louisiana and Minnesota. Watch below:

Today, President Obama posted the following message on Facebook:

“All Americans should be deeply troubled by the fatal shootings of Alton Sterling in Baton Rouge, Louisiana and Philando Castile in Falcon Heights, Minnesota. We’ve seen such tragedies far too many times, and our hearts go out to the families and communities who’ve suffered such a painful loss.

“Although I am constrained in commenting on the particular facts of these cases, I am encouraged that the U.S. Department of Justice has opened a civil rights investigation in Baton Rouge, and I have full confidence in their professionalism and their ability to conduct a thoughtful, thorough, and fair inquiry.

“But regardless of the outcome of such investigations, what’s clear is that these fatal shootings are not isolated incidents. They are symptomatic of the broader challenges within our criminal justice system, the racial disparities that appear across the system year after year, and the resulting lack of trust that exists between law enforcement and too many of the communities they serve.

“In the meantime, all Americans should recognize the anger, frustration, and grief that so many Americans are feeling — feelings that are being expressed in peaceful protests and vigils. Michelle and I share those feelings. Rather than fall into a predictable pattern of division and political posturing, let’s reflect on what we can do better. Let’s come together as a nation, and keep faith with one another, in order to ensure a future where all of our children know that their lives matter.” Read the message on the President’s Facebook page.

SICK: Teen Girl Horrified at What She Caught Transsexual Doing in Locker Room

One of our worst fears regarding the transsexual community and its cry for gender equality are becoming a dangerous reality, and an incident at an Olympia, Washington, college illustrated the sick direction in which gender discrimination laws are headed.

Evergreen College shared a locker room with the Capital High School swim club and a children’s swim academy. Evergreen was forced to follow state laws against discriminating on the basis of gender identity, which presented the troubling situation of grown transsexual men using the same locker room with small girls — some as young as 6 years old.

It didn’t take long for something disturbing to happen. In 2012, a young girl told her parents that a 45-year-old transgender student exposed himself to her in the locker room.
As expected, parents were outraged when they heard what happened and demanded something be done.

The college installed “privacy curtains” in the locker room and allowed the transgender student to continue using the women’s facilities. The college claimed that while the curtains weren’t a perfect solution, they did address the privacy issues of this involved.

That’s assuming transgender men will actually use the area with the curtains — because they were not required to do so.
Evergreen spokesman Jason Wettstein told KOMO the college must abide by state laws.

“Gender identity is one of the protected things in discrimination law in this state,” Wettstein said.

“If it were my kid, I would be absolutely outraged,” said Joseph Backholm, director of the conservative non-profit Family Policy Institute of Washington. Backholm said parents have a “reasonable expectation” that there are not going to be naked men around their daughters in a restroom.

This kind of behavior is most likely going to continue as more states pass laws prohibiting “discrimination” against transgender individuals. It’s a frightening direction for our country, and we have liberals to thank for it.
