Barack Obama still controls a large chunk of the Democrat Party.
Polls show he’s the most popular Democrat and the so-called mainstream media still can’t get enough of him.
And now big media is defending this huge foreign policy mistake Obama made.
Barack Obama’s legacy is being unraveled by Donald Trump.
One by one, his mistakes are being cleaned up.
Perhaps his worst was the disastrous foreign policy that saw the rise of ISIS, massive destabilization in Northern Africa, and the emboldening of Iran, Russia, and China.
Obama’s blunder regarding Iran was particularly troubling.
Obama was so desperate to make a deal with Iran, he cut a deal that put Iran on the path to get a nuclear weapon.
He also released hundreds of billions in cash to Iran as part of the feckless deal.
Foreign policy experts warned Obama that Iran could use the cash to fund terror, including John Kerry, his own Secretary of State.
Lo and behold, Iran used the cash to buy military weapons from Russia.
In response to Iran’s aggression toward the United States—Iran sponsored a Shia militia in Iraq to besiege the American embassy in Baghdad—Trump ordered an attack on Iran’s top military strategist and terror leader, Qasem Soleimani.
Iran responded to Soleimani’s death by launching rocket attacks at U.S. military bases in Iraq.
It’s very possible the rockets launched at American soldiers were paid for by the money Obama gave the Iranian regime.
And worse, the media is defending Obama’s horrible decision.
CBS News and CNN both ran with the notion that it was “unfounded” that the money Obama forked over went to the military, even though Kerry himself said it was a possibility it would be used in that way.
Cash is highly fungible, so it’s undeniable that Iranian resources have gone to bolstering their military.
NBC Nightly News had Obama National Security Advisor Susan Rice on the program to carry water for the Obama administration.
Rice is the woman who went on television and lied repeatedly about Benghazi.
She claimed the attack on the American embassy was a spontaneous raid spurred by outrage over an anti-Islam video that appeared on YouTube.
The truth is that the video was a shoddy production nobody watched or cared about, while the Benghazi attack was a coordinated militia attack in response to the reckless action to depose of Muammar Gaddafi.
This is supposed to pass for objective news coverage.
While many Democrats still worship Obama, there are some radicals in the party who are ready to move on from the Obama era and usher in unabashed socialism.
Big media is in an awkward position.
They’re still trying to portray Obama’s policies as “centrist” and “moderate” while not pushing too hard against their rabid socialist base.
The Democrat Party is a mess and the media’s lies about Obama’s Iran policy isn’t helping the issue.
