While We Were All Distracted By Trump… Obama Did Another Sneaky Friday Dump

Perfect… just freaking perfect. While the entire nation was mired in the ongoing scandals of Donald Trump and the corruption of Hillary Clinton, Barack Obama continued to support and aid our enemy, Iran. Because you can never do enough for the world’s number 1 sponsor of terror… Brit Hume seems to be the only one who has nailed him on it. Obama further eased sanctions on Iran on the Friday before Columbus Day.

This is the easing of banking restrictions so Iran can more easily fund their operations and terroristic ways. Obama’s move makes it easier for those known to deal with terrorists to conduct financial transactions. US businesses will now be able to wheel and deal with the Mullahs… don’t mind the blood and heads on the carpet.

From BizPac Review:

While everyone else is focused on what Donald Trump said eleven years ago (and why is Hillary trying to claim the moral high ground anyway?), the Obama Administration figured hey, why not take an under-the-radar shot at making life easier for one of the world’s most prominent sponsors of terror.

Fox News senior political analyst Brit Hume caught it and posted the details on Twitter:

Apparently, the idea is to make it easier for U.S. businesses to do business in Iran.

Before the start of the Columbus Day holiday weekend, the Treasury Department made it easier for offshore banking institutions to make transactions with Iran, as long as the money doesn’t actually enter the U.S. financial system. Although many sanctions were lifted as a part of the Iran deal, certain “specially designated nationals,” or SDNs, are still subject to the sanctions for reasons which include their human rights record or support for terror groups.

Now, even these SDNs are no longer completely banned from transacting with U.S. businesses.

You might ask why he did this… the AP has an explanation of sorts:

Friday’s steps by the Treasury come amid growing complaints from Iran that it is not getting the sanctions relief it deserves under the nuclear deal because remaining U.S. sanctions have scared foreign companies from doing business in or with the country. The U.S. insists it has met its obligations and blamed Iranian behavior for the reluctance of foreign companies do to business in Iran. At the same time, it has sought to reassure foreign companies that certain transactions with Iran will no longer be subject to U.S. sanctions.

According to Obama, if Iran ain’t happy, no one is. I bet he goes through a lot of pants kneeling before the Iranians. I’m sure this is not the end of Obama’s gifts to Iran either. He wants them involved in our financial and banking sectors, so this is his first push towards that. If it walks, talks and kneels like a Muslim… Meanwhile, we swim in the cesspool of American politics.
