Craig Andresen and Diane Sori discuss 'Two Acts of Treason...Obama
Style'; 'The Clinical Term for Liberalism'; and important news of the
Two Acts of Treason...Obama Style By: Diane Sori / The Patriot Factor / Right Side Patriots on American Political Radio
As I write this we are anxiously awaiting with baited breath to see how successful
President Trump is with Kim Jong-un at the NOKO Summit and to see if this week's release of the 'supposed' final investigative report into
Hillary Clinton's email scandal points to her finally being called to task. However, there are still two other
ongoing investigations of note that should be addressed and these both go
directly to top of the ever-growing Democratic trash heap...landing squarely, as they should, at the
feet of former President Barack HUSSEIN Obama.
U.S. Code 2381: “Whoever, owing allegiance to the United States,
levies war against them or adheres to their enemies, giving them aid and
comfort within the United States or elsewhere, is guilty of treason and
shall suffer death, or shall be imprisoned not less than five years and
fined under this title but not less than $10,000; and shall be
incapable of holding any office under the United States.”
And to this affect, last week the 'Senate Permanent Subcommittee on
Investigations' Chairman Rob Portman (R-Ohio) released to the public
their findings* regarding certain questionable actions of former
President Barack HUSSEIN Obama. In effect proving that with malice
intended, Obama lied to both Congress and to 'We the People' about
certain key elements of the Iranian nuclear deal itself (the Joint
Comprehensive Plan Of Action aka JCPOA) as well as about his secretly
trying to give Iran access to the U.S. banking and financial systems in
order to allow them to convert billions of dollars in assets into Euros.
And he did so as part of his desperate attempt to seal the Iranian
nuclear deal even while U.S. sanctions against Iran where still in
place...in other words the U.S. be damned.
First some background information. One of the 'supposed' key
components of Obama's (very bad) nuclear deal was that it would see a “near-ban”
on the Iranian regime having any access whatsoever to our U.S. banking
and financial systems. However, as per the committee's findings, on his
orders Obama officials “pushed” both the Treasury and State
Departments into working behind the scenes to help Iran...the world's
leading state sponsor of terrorism...gain access to much needed monies
while he and his cronies spewed rhetoric to Congress that Iran would
never gain access to any part of said banking or financial systems. "Iranian banks will not be able to clear US dollars through New York,
hold correspondent account relationships with US financial institutions,
or enter into financing arrangements with US banks." So said
Democrat Adam Szubin, the Department of the Treasury's acting Under Secretary for Terrorism and Financial Intelligence during the Obama
years...but guess what he lied while Obama of course smiled.
And with those assurances not withstanding, on February 24, 2016, Obama's Department of State “instructed” the Department of the Treasury to issue the required license**...a permit if you will...to let Iran “sidestep”
in-place sanctions for as long as it took them to convert funds through
an American bank. And after issuing said license...a license which
including giving Iran unlimited future access to their deposits as long as
the license was in place... these Obama folks denied to Congress...lied to
Congress...that it had done so.
So what do the funds in question actually consist of...how about $5.7
billion of Iran's overseas reserves garnered from oil sales and from
the still “frozen” 1979 sanctions... sanctions derived from
monies paid for by the then Shah of Iran's government in regards to a
$400 million delivery of fighter jets from the U.S...remain the
sanctions held in Oman's Bank Muscat. Frozen in rials...Oman's
currency... which are difficult to convert...led Iran wanting to convert
them “briefly” into U.S. dollars and then into Euros...something Obama was
more than willing to do if Iran "signed" on the nuclear deal dotted line.
However, Obama's plan failed when officials from the Treasury's Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC) “encouraged”
(threatened is more like it) two U.S. banks to act as the intermediaries and carry
out the converting of funds. But thankfully both banks refused to take
part in what they claimed could cause a potential serious regulatory backlash “due to compliance, reputational, and legal risks associated with doing business with Iran.” Translation...the bank's hierarchy were smart enough to know that what was actually being asked of them amounted to treason.
And now with this report we find that official Department of State
emails were found admitting that the Obama administration had indeed
overstepped their bounds and “exceeded our JCPOA commitments.” And to make matters worse, the Senate report also disclosed that Obama's people, including “friendly” bank regulators, put on what they referred to as more than 200 “roadshows” around the world where they “encouraged” foreign financial institutions to do business with Iran “as long as the rest of the world left the United States out of it”...at
least kept us out on the surface that is...while assuring said financial
institutions who did so that they would get nothing more than a mere slap on
the wrist for violating U.S. sanctions if caught.
Nothing like the thrill of covertly helping Obama's brethren screw the U.S. it seems.
So let's summarize the main infractions of this first investigation
of note...and know that said actions described herein do, I believe,
reach the definition of treason as per U.S. Code 2381, in that they give
“aid and comfort” to the enemy. First, Obama and crew told
Congress it would not allow Iran access to U.S. financial institutions
under any conditions...which we now know was a lie. Second, the
Department of the Treasury on orders from the Department of State issued
a special license that would allow Iran to do exactly that no matter
that they unsuccessfully tried to “pressure” two U.S. banks into helping the
regime get their much wanted monies. And third, all parties involved
lied to both Congress and 'We the People'...parties from Obama on
down...about their actions and 'supposed' inactions, and continue to do
so even though they have been caught.
And all the above...and much more...was done ever so discreetly with it
never intending to be disclosed. And when it comes to treason, intended
actions are just as damning as actions successfully taken. And loyal Democrats are now circling the Obama wagon to chime in that what's the big
deal as no actual U.S. laws were broken since no actual transactions
took place. In fact, Treasury officials loyal to Obama claim these
transactions would have been legal if they had taken place because the
terms of the JCPOA were "consistent with Iran's position, allowing
the Government of Iran to engage in 'transfers,' 'foreign exchange
(including Rial related transactions),' and the 'purchase or acquisition
by the Government of Iran of US bank notes.'"
Really, pray tell how is knowingly and willingly aiding in the
releasing of monies that would assuredly go into helping the enemy
commit even more acts of terrorism not be treason...simply it is. And
don't ever forget that no U.S. president, whether they be Democrat or
Republican, believed any of those “frozen” monies should be
returned to those sorts who helped to overthrew the then western aligned government of
the Shah or to any of those who now continue to chant “Death to America” and “Death to Israel” time and time again...until Barack Hussein Obama that is.
And that leads me to another in-our-face act of treason willingly committed by then President Obama and crew.
The Trump administration has now traced back some... but not all...of
the $1.7 billion ($400 million from originally frozen Iranian assets
plus $1.3 billion in interest) Obama actually did release to
Iran...monies that were indeed in affect ransom...a bribe...monies paid for the release of four
American hostages...hostages who not so surprisingly just "happened" to be
released on the very same day the monies arrived via an
unmarked cargo plane in the dead of night back on January 17, 2016.
Now remember how the Obama controlled Department of Justice tried to get us to believe that it is not a federal crime to “pay” a ransom, that it's just a crime to “receive”
ransom. Well that's simply not true as it surely is a crime when the
payer...as in an American president...knew well that government-paid
ransom is barred under U.S. law, and that those monies would in turn be
monies Iran transferred over to some of the many terrorist groups they
finance...groups like Hezbollah and the Iraqi Shia terrorist group
Kata'ib Hizballah (KH) to name just two.
And this act of paying ransom adds to the fact that America's 44th
president was not on America's side. And that's in addition to the fact
that paying ransom only encourages kidnappers and terrorists to take
even more hostages, which is exactly what Iran has done since Obama paid
them the monies they demanded.
But as for the legalities of why this deal is treason...while the
White House contended that the payment did nothing but settle the above
mentioned decades-long what they called a “financial dispute,”
and that the settlement was fully disclosed in January, neither Obama
nor White House officials made mention that the $400 million arrived in
Iran at the same time as the hostages were freed. Nor did they mention
that normally a bank transfer would be used for that type of deal...if said deal was indeed legitimate that is...instead these miscreants used the excuse that since Congress banned
dollar transfers to Iran our government was "forced" to buy foreign
currency...as in Swiss francs, euros and other foreign currencies...with
those currencies then being transferred to Iran in cash.
So while the cargo plane was unmarked, and while the monies were
in foreign currencies they were still paid and substituted for American
cash...and all this was kept secret from 'We the People' and would have
remained so if not for the fact that The Wall Street Journal broke the
story almost eight months later on August 2, 2016. But why keep this
payment secret from the American public if indeed this deal was on the
up-and-up...as in monies paid for a purchase not yet delivered. And why
do Obama's minions continue to insist that the U.S. did the right thing
by his settling this almost 40-year old "issue"...especially since the
Iranians claimed then and continue to claim now that the monies were indeed a
ransom payment made.
And so it all boils down to the fact that this deal was but one of Obama's
many traitorous actions...the Taliban 5 trade for American deserter Beau
Bergdahl quickly comes to mind as yet another...and dare we not forget the nightmare that was Benghazi. Yet even to this day islamic-condoners and those of the
uber bleeding heart liberal persuasion continue to say that, “It was
their money. It belonged to the Iranian government.”...the fact remains
that when Barack HUSSEIN Obama keeps something major from the American
public and then lies about it even when caught, you just know that “there's something rotten in the state of Denmark” as the old saying goes.
So by his giving “aid and comfort” to the enemy on both of
the accounts I stated, Barack HUSSEIN Obama is guilty of
treason...and in my so humble opinion should be given either a bullet or a rope as
his one and only choice of punishment. No “get out of jail free” card
must again be issued as it was with Benghazi and with the Taliban 5 trade,
and most surely no simple fine should be the sole punishment adjudicated. And
as to a prison sentence being yet another option that U.S. Code 2381
provides, I, and I'm sure countless others, do not want even one dime of
our hard-earned taxpayer dollars being spent on keeping a traitor...on
keeping Obama...alive...alive for decades let alone mere years.
