February, 2018, Political Class Insanity, Part 4: The Continued Failures of the Obama Presidency

It is the beginning of another month which means it is again time to review the latest political class insanity from Washington and around the world. Political class insanity takes many forms including the wasting of taxpayer wealth, criminal fraud within government programs, inane and stupid political quotes and actions, the inability to create and implement effective and efficient government programs, stupid and ill performing economic policies and strategies, and other forms of insanity that continue to evolve and surprise and shock us.

Let's get started:

1) We are not fans of very many politicians and one of the worst of all time in our opinion was Barack Obama. We have made the case that he came into the office as a community organizer and left the office eight years later as a organizer, showing no growth in leadership or effectiveness in those eight years. 

He almost doubled the national debt by adding almost ten TRILLION to the national debt and provided no strategic plans at any time to fix a whole slew of issue facing Americans from failing public schools to a failed foreign policy to fiscally distressed government programs like Social Security.

But he was also one of the most lawless President of all time. We documented his lawlessness in the following blog post:

This post laid out dozens of situations where his Presidency broke current laws, broke international treaties, violated the Constitution and deprived ordinary Americans of their rights. And although he has been out of office for over a year, it appears that his law breaking ways may have included previously unknown violations including:
  • According to a Daily Wire article by Ryan Saavedra on January 11, 2018, a former Obama administration official has implied that the Obama administration had warned a known, identified Iranian terrorist that the Israelis were about to assassinate him.
  • The article summarizes the findings of an article that appeared in a Kuwaiti newspaper.
  • A reporter for the New York Times, Bret Stephens, tweeted out the article that showed the newspaper claiming that the Obama administration had warned the Iranian government that Israel was going to kill Iranian general Qassem Soleimani who is the leader of the Quds Force, an officially designated sponsor of terrorism.
  • The Daily Wire asserts that this general was responsible for the deaths of hundreds of American soldiers killed while fighting in Iraq.
  • Stephens then got into a Twitter war with a former member of Obama’s national security staff, Tommy Vietor, who more or less denied that the incident happened.
  • However, as a result of the back and forth Twitter exchanges Stephens seemed to get Vietor in a corner that makes it appear that the Obama administration MAY have actually warned the Iranians in order to keep relations good with this terroristic country.
We may never find out if the Obama administration sold out the Israelis and this country when it came to eliminating a terrorist leader. But given Obama’s history of lying and the fact that he would have done anything to get a nuclear arms deal with the Iranians, no matter how bad the deal turned out to be, my betting would be that he did sell out the Israelis attempt to eliminate a known terrorist leader. Insanity.

2) But the above piece of political class/Obama insanity takes on a more realistic possibility when you consider this next piece of insanity. It appears that Obama may have unethically or criminally disrupted an important investigation by his own administration, an investigation that may have disrupted his obsessive need to reach a deal, any deal with the Iranians on their nuclear arms program. 

Let’s allow Cris Erickson, writing for the Opslens website tell us what may have happened, “Five Facts You Need to Know About ‘Project Cassandra’”:
  • The general accusation is that: “The Obama administration allowed Hezbollah terrorists to freely traffic drugs and launder money in order to broker the Iranian Nuclear Deal.”
  • The terrorists were being investigated under the codename Project Cassandra which was led by the Federal Drug Enforcement Agency and whose purpose was to reduce the amount of money the Iranian-supported Hezbollah terrorists were raising via drug trafficking and money laundering.
  • These efforts were estimated to give the terrorist organization $1 billion a year.
  • Hezbollah has long been classified by the State Department as a terrorist organization.
  • Hezbollah was formed in 1982 and is an arm of the Iranian government's armed forces to carry out terrorist and Iranian backed military efforts throughout the Middle East.
  • Congressional testimony showed that Hezbollah had extensive connections with South American drug cartels.
  • Former DEA operations chief Michael Braun called the Hezbollah drug running operation “the most sophisticated money laundering scheme or schemes that we have ever witnessed.”
  • According to those involved in the Project Cassandra efforts, the Obama administration constantly blocked the DEA’s efforts to arrest and prosecute Hezbollah operatives or impose financial sanctions to cut back Hezbollah’s drug running operations.
  • In addition, “In order to protect the nuclear deal, the Obama administration went so far as to allow a senior member of Hezbollah to return back to Lebanon, rather than pressuring the Czech government to have him extradited to the US after he was indicted for planning the murders of US government employees. Ali Fayed is reportedly back in the arms dealing business, supplying fighters in Syria with heavy weapons.”
  • But all of this effort was for naught since a Politico article by Josh Meyers cites former Obama Treasury official, Katherine Bauer stating: “under the Obama administration … these [Hezbollah-related] investigations were tamped down for fear of rocking the boat with Iran and jeopardizing the nuclear deal.” The success of Project Cassandra in targeting and eliminating Hezbollah operations became “problematic” for the negotiations leading up to the nuclear deal; out of fear of the deal being sabotaged by DEA operations, the Obama White House took on a policy that would result in a deal, regardless of cost.”
  • Once the incredibly bad, one sided Iranian nuclear arms deal was signed, the Project Cassandra leaders were immediately moved to other assignments.
As we all know, the final nuclear deal with Iran, while it may have slightly delayed the Iranian development of nuclear arms, was on the whole an utter failure. Which should surprise no one since all of Obama’s agreements were horribly one sided and not in the favor of America. 

And for this poor agreement, we have allowed a known terrorist organization continue to spread illegal drugs in exchange for billions of dollars and to continue to kill innocent people around the world. Insanity.

3) If Obama did not do any of the above treasonous acts, we do know something atrocious that he really did do. We have previously discussed the stupidity and grossness relative to the fact that Obama was aiming to spend $1.5 BILLION to build his Presidential library. I always thought that George Bush was obscene for spending half a billion dollars on his library but Obama has tripled my disgust with his plans.

But in a small sense of satisfaction, the preliminary view of the Obama library was not well received:
  • According to Joe Crowe, writing for NewsMax on January 10, 2018, reviewed some of the earliest reviews of Obama’s library plans.
  • Alex Griswold of the Washington Free Beacon newspaper called the plans a “giant toenail.”
  • A group of University of Chicago professors also gave a bad review: "This is a socially regressive plan . . . We also note that the Obama Center has abandoned its original plans to be a presidential library. It will be a private entity with no official connection to the National Archives." 
  • Ron Grossman of the Chicago Tribune said: "To me, it evokes a soft-boiled egg in a teacup."

Either in office or at out of office, the Obama Presidency still stinks. And is still lawless and expensive with no noticeable value in return. More insanity to follow.
