Why Isn’t Strickland Asked About $400 Million Iran Payoff? What (D)ifference Does It Make?

The media bias has been pretty remarkable this week, but it’s particularly obvious today.

News broke this week that the Obama Administration sent $400 million in foreign currency on an unmarked plane to Iran as they were releasing our hostages. This happened in January. And when President Obama announced the release of the prisoners, he didn’t mention anything about $400 million dollars.

It was a fly by night operation – literally. Not exactly something you would expect from someone who promised “the most transparent” administration in US History. Sending the better part of a billion dollars to an enemy is something that certainly demands transparency.

White House Press Secretary was asked about this very suspicious transaction that smells of a ransom payoff today. Given Iran’s funding of Hezbollah, he conceded that some of that Obama money may have ended up in the terrorist organization’s pockets.

“The president was quite forward-leaning in advance of the nuclear deal even being completed in acknowledging that we know that Iran supports terrorism,” Earnest said. “We know that Iran supports Hezbollah and the Assad regime, and it is certainly possible that some of the money that Iran has is being used for those purposes, too.”

Even the White House acknowledged that this money may have been redirected to Iran. This is terrifying and appalling.

While the press has been questioning the White House, where are the questions for elected officials and candidates who supported the Iran Deal? If a Republican was president, every Republican Senator and Congressman would be asked to weigh in on this. But, we don’t see that same accountability from the press with Democrats.

US Senate candidate and failed former governor Ted Strickland supported the Iran Deal. How does he feel about this $400 million and US taxpayers possibly funding Hezbollah? Does he think it’s shady to make this covert payoff and hide it for months? What about Sherrod Brown? He gave two big thumbs up to the deal?

Why aren’t their feet being held to the fire on these questions? Why is every Republican asked about Donald Trump, but the press doesn’t ask every Democrat about Hillary Clinton’s repeated lies and corruption? Why is he a source of angst to all Republicans but she isn’t to Democrats?

What (D)ifference does it make?

 

Sherrod Brown: It’s time to fix our bridges (again)

Sherrod Brown wants to borrow more money to fix the infrastructure he said would be fixed by the stimulus bill
Sherrod Brown wants to borrow more money to fix the infrastructure he said would be fixed by the stimulus bill
Sherrod Brown told us in 2009 that we absolutely positively had to pass the Stimulus Bill because we needed improvements made to our roadways and bridges. He stood on the Brent Space Bridge in Cincinnati with the Emaculated One and claimed that the “jobs bill” <ahem> would fix that exact bridge and would get the economy headed in the right direction. Well, the Stimulus Bill passed. That must mean that all of our roads and bridges are wonderful now, right?

Why is it then that Senator Brown sent an e-mail out yesterday, May 17, 2014, a full 5 years after the Stimulus was passed, asking voters to “Demand that Congress take action to repair America’s crumbling bridges”

Yes, you read that right, ‘Ol Brown, the most liberal senator in Washington, is asking the American taxpayers to fund a project that he said was already funded.

Typical liberal hypocrisy. THE SKY IS FALLING!!! Or, in this case, the bridge. We have to spend a trillion dollars, yes, trillion with a “T”, to fix everything that that evil and coldhearted George Bush let decay (because he hates black people).

Then, of course, the Obama cronies don’t spend one red cent on a single project they claimed the money would go for, and come back time after time asking for more money and claiming that Chicken Little will fix all of your problems.

The e-mail goes on to say “Congress needs to devote significant resources to repairing our nation’s crumbling infrastructure. I know it. The President knows it. And I know you know it, too.”

Apparently, in the world inside the beltway, a trillion dollars isn’t “significant resources”. To the average taxpayer, $20 is a “significant resource”, Mr. Brown. Before you and your cronies took over the White House, we had crumbling bridges, and a need for infrastructure improvement. Now,  we have crumbling bridges, a need for infrastructure improvement, and $6 Trillion more added to the national debt! Three cheers for Obama!

As long as liberals control our government, this type of dumbassery will continue. It’s not about money. It’s about control. More of your hard earned dollars going to fund, well, nothing. More of your grandchildren’s hard earned dollars to fund the same nothing. Call Sherrod Brown and tell him how you feel. Better yet, vote Republican and take away his power. We can’t rule if we don’t win.

As always, remember: Elections have Consequences……
