TREY’s TAKE: Calling B.S. on $400 million Payoff of Iran

On Wednesday the world learned through a blockbuster report in the Wall Street Journal that President Obama made a secret deal with the terrorist nation of Iran to transfer $400 million in cash in what appears to be ransom money for the release of hostages being held by the Mullahs.

According to the report, in January of this year the U.S. flew an unmarked cargo plane carrying stacks of foreign currency (hard cash) on wood pallets into Iran.  It is illegal for the U.S. to send dollars to Iran so Obama exchanged U.S. dollars for cash from other nations to get around U.S. federal law.

On the very same day they received the untraceable cash the Iranians released four Americans they were holding hostage.

The administration talking heads are on the defensive demanding we all accept this as a coincidence.  They said they did not pay ransom.


There is no way this is a coincidence.  The bad guys in charge of Iran have been holding these hostages for years and they just so happen to release them on the night they received $400 million in cash from the U.S.?


What did they do with all that money?  Presidential mouth-man Josh Ernest says the Iranians used it to build bridges, and not one dime went to fund the bad guys Iran supports.


These are bad guys who do bad things and they need money to carry out their destruction.

This horrible decision by Obama has essentially put a price on the heads of Americans by saying to bad guys everywhere if you grab our people we will give you money – an airplane full of untraceable cash in foreign currency.

Clearly Obama doesn’t believe the principle you get more of what you reward and less of what you punish. To help him learn the lesson the very same Iranians have captured more American hostages since this deal was done.

I’m sure they are waiting for their next Obama air drop of wooden pallets of cash.

Earlier this week President Obama said Donald Trump is unfit to be President of the U.S.  He said Trump doesn’t know what he is doing and doesn’t understand the world we live in.  Especially our enemies, the Prez said.

Takes one to know one doesn’t it?

For 7 1/2 years, Obama has tried to act like he was fit for the Presidency.  The verdict is in.  This Iranian cash swap is the latest example of a guy (Obama) who has been in over his head from day one.

That’s no B.S.
