The Obama administration secretly organized an airlift of $400 million worth of cash to Iran that coincided with the January release of four Americans detained in Tehran, according to U.S. and European officials and congressional staff briefed on the operation afterward.
Wooden pallets stacked with euros, Swiss francs and other currencies were flown into Iran on an unmarked cargo plane, according to these officials. The U.S. procured the money from the central banks of the Netherlands and Switzerland, they said.
The money represented the first installment of a $1.7 billion settlement the Obama administration reached with Iran to resolve a decades-old dispute over a failed arms deal signed just before the 1979 fall of Iran’s last monarch, Shah Mohammad Reza Pahlavi.
Mac McCutcheon is the next Speaker of the House…
Who is he?
Hubbard ally, so the media attacks…
McCutcheon, a Republican from Huntsville and chairman of the House Rules Committee, is about as Hubbard as Hubbard himself.
He was there when Hubbard was initially indicted on all those counts of violating the ethics law he and his fellow Republicans had created. McCutcheon stood up to defend his friend Hubbard – with nothing to go on but blind loyalty. He assured Alabamians Hubbard could have done nothing wrong.
Nothing has changed.
But McCutcheon didn’t stop there. As the case against Hubbard progressed -– after emails were made public revealing just how greedy and gross Hubbard’s begging for money had become –- McCutcheon introduced a bill in the Legislature that would make it harder for prosecutors to investigate public officials, or to ever hold them accountable for their crimes.
His bill, with all the Orwellian irony Montgomery could muster, was supposed to create something he called the “Permanent Joint Legislative Committee on Taxpayer Accountability.”
But people who knew what was in it called it the “Star Chamber Bill.”
It would have set up a legislative committee that would micromanage all agencies, and approve spending requests for departments including the attorney general and the examiners of public accounts –- agencies that must have the independent authority to look at public officials.
It was all part of the plan of attack by a number of lawmakers in the days leading up to the Hubbard trial, a plan to centralize more power in the already over-powered Legislature, to thwart attempts by law enforcement to force those Legislators to abide by their own laws, and to punish those who would take hard looks at those leaders.
Roy Moore for Governor? Not likely.
Auditor Jim Zeigler calls BS…
Here’s where some of the lottery money goes…
Trump’s Purple Heart stupid is just his latest stupidity…
Khan, who Trump continues to elevate…
Almost on cue, this appears…
Appearing on “CBS This Morning,” Trump was pressed about his father’s lack of apology for his criticism of the Khan family, even amid stinging bipartisan condemnation for his remarks.
The senior Trump has so far not apologized for his remarks toward the Khans, despite Eric Trump’s claim.
“Would your father be willing to apologize and move on?” co-host Norah O’Donnell asked.
“I think that’s a great question for him, and he has by calling them a hero,” Trump responded. “In terms of the one question — whether you’ve made a sacrifice — I think my father has. Now, that’s certainly not the ultimate sacrifice, the ultimate sacrifice is a soldier dying for this nation, dying to protect the three of us, no doubt about it –“
They want to move on…
MOVE ON, MORON.
Trump vs. the GOP…
Stop pointing guns at cops…
The mother of a teen who shot at police officers while with his cousin, said that they had been “doing what Black Lives Matter wanted them to do.”
Police in Pennsylvania were responding to gunshots Friday morning when their vehicle came under fire by two teenagers. The teens were arrested on Tuesday, The mother of one holds Black Lives Matter at least partially responsible.
“They are in jail for doing what Black Lives Matter wanted them to do: shoot at cops,” Luz Rentas said in a statement to several media outlets, Associated Press reported. “The truth is that these are two punk kids following the orders of an irresponsible organization and now they’re gonna pay for it.”
Marquell Rentas, 17, and Trenton Nace, 18, are cousins facing serious charges, including attempted homicide of a law enforcement officer. They were arrested after officers received a report of a shooting at a cemetery in Columbia, just before 3:30 am on Friday, according to the AP.
The 17-year-old Rentas reportedly told officers, “I was shooting at you,” when he was arrested.
District Attorney Craig Stedman seemed to agree with the mother, saying, “There’s a lot of rhetoric demonizing police. It creates greater a chance to have individuals emboldened to take violent actions out on police.”
The local Black Lives Matter chapter rejects Luz Rentas’ accusations, saying the group does not endorse violence as means to accomplish their goal of ending police brutality.
Kevin Ressler, pastor and co-organizer of Lancaster’s Black Lives Matter chapter, said Rentas reached out to him on Monday night via Facebook and had a lengthy conversation. He hopes to meet with her and the teens to discuss how to better serve young African-American men.
“Hopefully we can take this near-tragic circumstance and try to figure out what positive can come from it,” he said, AP reported.
Jonathan Greer says he was unanimously voted out as pastor of Mt. Sterling Baptist Church in Butler after being told by church leadership to not invite black children to Vacation Bible School.
“There was pushback about where the types of children we were bringing in, and I was asked to not invite black children to VBS,” Greer said in an interview with WTOK-TV.
Attempts made by AL.com to reach Greer and church leadership on Tuesday were unsuccessful.
Greer, who spent a year and a half at the Choctaw County church, said he was told repeatedly that black people weren’t allowed. That’s why he chose to preach Sunday on racism.
“I wanted the church to know that this is not consistent with the gospel,” he told the news station. “This is not consistent with God’s word that we honor and give dignity to all people. That’s what the Bible teaches us, and all people are worthy and in need of the gospel, and racism denies that to a certain amount of people.”
Freddie Moore, who is a deacon at Mt. Sterling Baptist Church, said Greer’s statement isn’t true. Black residents are welcome at the church anytime.
