Gonna use NPR as the springboard for this one because of how it seems that every single response this week from the progressives has been ‘why are we talking about old news, you know let me tell you something…’ Or ‘the republicans or Trump are just going to opposes and mistreat all situations for gain or vengeance’. How about just simply the American people that hear quacks, see waddling, see swimming like em’ ducks; well we as the citizenry think there are ducks. Mrs Clinton hasn’t held a news conference in over 6 months to my recollection, walks though the sabotage of Sen Sanders campaign, the all too witness of the FBI director saying just about the most damnable thing with regard to the use of personal server, access to the server and the communication of TSCI messages, while the AG just basically sits in the same chair after and shrugs a lot and look totally inept because she refuses to even make mention of law, direct cause for her non-recusal, and then out of hand nolo contendre to there being any ’cause’ with regard to the entire investigation and the FBI Directors testimony.
Now this. The President of the United States gives $400 million in untraceable hard Swiss Francs & Euros stacked on pallets and flown into Iran as ransom unmarked under cover of night in the release of 5 American Hostages. Then the WH lies about it. I don’t think that’s a partisan issue, it’s absolutely mind blowing to me as an American citizen and taxpayer knowing that cash will go straight to terrorist organizations and will kill Americans and our brother and sisters in Christ as well as the citizens of our allies. This makes Fast and Furious look like Kindergarten snack time. Is that partisan? Was I really told what Josh Earnest is today asserting I heard from the President in January. Ugh… See below
So much for releasing the ‘Frozen’ funds… WSJ reports an air lift of cash rounded up through banks placed on pallets and secretly in unmarked aircraft delivered $400 Million in cash as there the release of 5 Americans. Then an Iranian official confirms it, but wait one of the 5 American hostages, US Pastor Saeed Abidini told FOX Business Network and CNN that the Iranian regime would not let his plane leave Iran until Obama’s ransom plane arrived with $400 million in euros and Swiss Francs. So the WH had denied initially the story, but now not still straightforwardly doing so but dancing for 24 minutes in a WH press conference about how we all in America knew because the President went on TV and said that there would be all of those in an attack over the deal and that this now is just a Republican attack. The American people we told that funds would be “released”. If you deposit an large deposit in the bank, they will take days or weeks before releasing the full amount once they have received their transfer. I doesn’t matter that there is no banking relationship with Iran, those funds would get released it what ever process to be developed and that wouldn’t be an instant transfer. The American people were not told that the ‘deal’ included an airlift of $400 million dollars in untraceable cash to Iran the largest state sponsor of terrorism in the world. Which is by the way not allowed under established US policy to pay ransoms; the DOJ directly objected to the airlift of cash, but was overruled by the State Department.
In the mean time Iran has already trounced all over the ‘deal’. This isn’t a political attack at all it is executive and dictatorial subversion I don’t care if you have a (D), (R), (I), (L) or a dang (Z) before or after your name.

Watch Josh Earnest in the link do all he can but address the questions and cry partisan politics on republicans; how about the American people.
