$33.6 BILLION. That is the amount then-President Barack Obama had shipped under cover of darkness to the world’s #1 state sponsor of terrorism. It was literally pallets of cash and gold that was part of the shockingly one-sided nuclear agreement between Iran and the Obama administration.
That amount was nearly 10% of Iran’s entire economy paid out between 2015 and 2016, an unprecedented cash windfall for what had been up to then an economically struggling Iranian regime.
Now consider this. Prior to 2016 North Korea’s missile testing capability was sporadic at best and prone to high failure rates. This was due in great part to budget constraints. The isolated military nation was cash poor and couldn’t afford a more expansive nuclear testing program.
And yet just two years after Barack Obama’s nearly 34 billion dollar cash and gold payment to Iran we see this headline:
The astounding acceleration of North Korea’s program has more than a few in the intelligence community thinking it is Iranian investment that has allowed North Korea to move so quickly forward with its nuclear program. The Iranians want that weaponized technology so an agreement is believed to have been struck between both rogue nations. Iran was suddenly rich with tens of billions sent its way by Barack Obama. Some of those billions were then given to North Korea to accelerate its nuclear weapons program in return for that technology then being shared by North Korea with Iran. It is one evil regime helping the other – both of which openly call for the destruction of the United States.
Soon America and the world will have nuclear missiles pointing at it from both North Korea and Iran – courtesy of Barack Hussein Obama. Many remarked at the time how odd Mr. Obama’s Iranian deal seemed, particularly regarding how much it gave Iran and how little it gave back to the United States. He didn’t require Iran improve its atrocious human rights record. (Women, minorities, and homosexuals are routinely killed in Iran) The president didn’t even ask for the release of U.S. citizens being held inside of Iranian prisons prior to delivering those billions to the terrorist regime. That judgement was looking through the wrong set of eyes, though.
What if the Obama-Iran deal was never meant to strengthen the United States but rather weaken it and its place in the world by strengthening and emboldening its most dangerous enemies? Then, and only then, does that deal make any sense.
The timeline doesn’t lie. $33.6 billion in untraceable cash and gold to Iran between 2015 and 2016 and within a year North Korea’s nuclear program is moving ahead at an unprecedented pace. One hand washing the other – with both those hands belonging to this guy:
The damage Mr. Obama inflicted upon America will not be measured in years but decades.
