Trump Supports Protestors in Iran

Two stories today show a remarkable contrast between how President Trump reacted to protests in Iran and how former President Obama largely ignored them. In regards to Obama the Jerusalem Post wrote that it was “the biggest failure to help human rights in modern history.


White House Urges World-Wide Support for Iran Protesters

The Trump administration is lobbying countries around the world to support protesters in Iran as violent demonstrations intensify, The Wall Street Journal reported Monday.

“We are encouraging all nations around the world to publicly condemn the government violence and to support the legitimate, basic rights of those protesting,” Brian Hook, the State Department’s director of policy planning, told the outlet.

“We know that the [Islamic revolutionary Guard Corps] plays a big role in the decisions and actions of the government,” he added — and pushed back on the notion that backing the protesters would only give ammunition to the regime.

Report: Obama Rejected Iran Protests to Grease Nuke Deal

President Barack Obama chose not to support massive 2009 protests in Iran because he wanted to reach a nuclear deal “at pretty much any cost,” former Israeli ambassador Michael Oren charged.

In an interview with The Jerusalem Post, Oren, who now serves as a deputy minister in Israel’s Knesset, said Obama claimed he would not support the so-called 2009 Green Movement because the CIA helped overthrow nationalist Iranian Prime Minister Mohammad Mosaddegh in 1953 — and he wanted to show the Iranian people he respected their sovereignty.

Obama’s failure to help reform-minded Iranian protesters has long been criticized by Israeli officials, led by Jewish Agency chairman and former Soviet dissident Natan Sharansky, who called it the biggest failure to help human rights in modern history, The Jerusalem Post reported.

No More Aid To Pakistan?

In the news today President Trump hints that the U.S. may curtail aid to Pakistan and warns Iran about human rights violation. Finally we hear about how NASA “adjusts” its temperature readings to support the theory of global warming while records for cold weather are being set around the country.


Trump: ‘No More’ Aid to Pakistan, ‘They Have Given Us Nothing but Lies and Deceit’

 President Donald Trump lashed out at Pakistan on Twitter just a few minutes past 7:00 a.m. Eastern time on New Year’s Day, expressing frustration at Islamabad’s inadequate efforts against terrorism and implying that U.S. foreign aid will be terminated as a result.

NASA’s Rubber Ruler: An Update

 The NASA/GISS temperature record is not actually a record of recorded temperatures. It is simply the most recent version of NASA’s adjustments to older adjustments. It is not thermometer readings. It is models all the way down.

How did warming accelerate if we are looking at the very same years?

Apparently, the Earth is getting warmer faster than it was five and a half years ago, but not because of actual recorded thermometer readings in those last five and a half years. It is getting warmer faster because NASA adjusted the data to show faster warming.

When you go to the NASA website, you can download temperature anomalies “1880-present.” But those data change every month. NASA adjusts it. You cannot find any older versions. NASA makes available only its most recent version. And NASA does not explain how it adjusts the data. You must simply trust it.

How Obama Let Hezbollah Off The Hook

The secret backstory of how Obama let Hezbollah off the hook

 In its determination to secure a nuclear deal with Iran, the Obama administration derailed an ambitious law enforcement campaign targeting drug trafficking by the Iranian-backed terrorist group Hezbollah, even as it was funneling cocaine into the United States, according to a POLITICO investigation.

The campaign, dubbed Project Cassandra, was launched in 2008 after the Drug Enforcement Administration amassed evidence that Hezbollah had transformed itself from a Middle East-focused military and political organization into an international crime syndicate that some investigators believed was collecting $1 billion a year from drug and weapons trafficking, money laundering and other criminal activities.

Over the next eight years, agents working out of a top-secret DEA facility in Chantilly, Virginia, used wiretaps, undercover operations and informants to map Hezbollah’s illicit networks, with the help of 30 U.S. and foreign security agencies.

They followed cocaine shipments, some from Latin America to West Africa and on to Europe and the Middle East, and others through Venezuela and Mexico to the United States. They tracked the river of dirty cash as it was laundered by, among other tactics, buying American used cars and shipping them to Africa. And with the help of some key cooperating witnesses, the agents traced the conspiracy, they believed, to the innermost circle of Hezbollah and its state sponsors in Iran.

But as Project Cassandra reached higher into the hierarchy of the conspiracy, Obama administration officials threw an increasingly insurmountable series of roadblocks in its way, according to interviews with dozens of participants who in many cases spoke for the first time about events shrouded in secrecy, and a review of government documents and court records. When Project Cassandra leaders sought approval for some significant investigations, prosecutions, arrests and financial sanctions, officials at the Justice and Treasury departments delayed, hindered or rejected their requests.
