BUT DON’T WE ALREADY KNOW?

(Aug. 3, 2016) — In response to the revelation made by The Wall Street Journal Wednesday that the Obama regime paid Iran the equivalent of $400,000,000 to Iran at the same time that four Americans were released from Iranian prisons in January, Trish Regan, who has been substituting for convalescing “Your World” Fox News host Neil Cavuto, asked guest Rep. Ed Royce, “Are there other things that may have been done potentially in secret?”
Regan, who has an arguably dramatic style of interacting with her guests, emphasized that the airliner which brought the $400 million combination of foreign currencies from the U.S. landed in Iran “in the dark of night, without the knowledge of the American people.”
Royce responded that the Obama regime, although he did not use that word, has been “secretive” about many actions it has taken. Regan’s preceding guest, former U.N. Ambassador John Bolton, answered Regan’s question as to whether or not the money was “ransom” with, “Of course it was ransom!”
The U.S. State Department has said that the payment was “separate” from negotiations surrounding Obama’s Iran nuclear “deal” finalized in July of last year. However, Fox News reported earlier on Wednesday that “…the [Wall Street] Journal says U.S. officials acknowledge that Iranian negotiators on the prisoner exchange said they wanted the cash to show they had gained something tangible.”
Iran is considered a state sponsor of terror by the U.S., but under Obama, agreed to release $1.7 billion in previously-frozen assets as part of the nuclear “deal.” In May, an Obama aide, Ben Rhodes, admitted to misleading the Washington media and, by extension, the American public in order to “sell the Iran nuclear deal.”
On March 1, 2012, Maricopa County, AZ Sheriff Joseph Arpaio and his Cold Case Posse lead investigator, Mike Zullo, announced at a press conference that the results of a six-month criminal probe of the image said to be Obama’s long-form birth certificate posted on the White House website on April 27, 2011 revealed it to be a “computer-generated forgery.”
Similarly, Obama’s purported Selective Service registration form was found to be a fraudulent. In June, Zullo told The Post & Email that unlike the birth certificate image, the Selective Service form is a “hard-copy forgery.”
Neither Congress nor the media has investigated why the purported president and commander-in-chief has no verifiable documentation, which Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump called upon Obama to release early in 2011. Trump was undeterred by the considerable media ridicule which followed, labeling him and anyone else questioning Obama’s bona fides “a birther.”
At a press conference with the prime minister of Singapore intended to discuss the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) on Tuesday, Obama called Trump “unfit” for the presidency. The Post & Email then published an article which asked, “Who is fit, and who is not?” regarding constitutional eligibility for the office.
Article II, Section 1, clause 5 of the U.S. Constitution requires that the president be a “natural born Citizen.” If Obama were born in a foreign country, he would have had a motive to create the narrative that he was born in the United States in order to purportedly qualify for the presidency in most Americans’ eyes. “His story is the American story — values from the heartland, a middle-class upbringing in a strong family, hard work and education as the means of getting ahead, and the conviction that a life so blessed should be lived in service to others,” his White House biography begins.
In October 2012, Trump challenged Obama to release his passport and college applications in exchange for $50,000,000 to go to a charity of Obama’s choice, but the White House provided no response. Trump has speculated that Obama either accurately reported himself as a foreign national to obtain special scholarship money to attend college in the U.S. or deceptively did so for the same reason.
At a second presser on July 17, 2012, Zullo said that the Cold Case Posse’s investigation could not confirm that Obama’s parents are who he has claimed; investigators also found no evidence that Obama was in Hawaii before the age of five, contrary to Obama’s claim of a birth and early years spent there.
One of the few outlets seriously covering the questions over Obama’s identity and documentation other than this one, The Sonoran News, reported in March 2010 in response to incongruities appearing in two different versions of Obama’s Selective Service Service form released by the Selective Service System that “those covering up Obama’s tracks have done a sloppy job, which means there really is a conspiracy to defraud the American people, not just a theory. “
Despite their feeble protestations, Congress has done nothing to discover who “Obama” really is. If the mainstream media knows, it refuses to tell.
