The so-called mainstream media attacks Donald Trump ad nauseum.
Conversely, they treated Barack Obama with kid gloves during his entire administration.
But Democrats are covering up one huge blunder Obama made.
Barack Obama and his defenders in the corporate press like to perpetuate the lie that his administration was “scandal-free.”
But that myth has slowly broken down over the past few years, in fact, Donald Trump recently overtook him in a poll as the Most Admired Man.
Now another Obama blunder has just come to light.
Senate Finance Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley recently released a statement detailing how an office within the Obama administration’s Treasury Department—the Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC)—permitted a nonprofit group to pay an organization that was under sanction for funding terrorism.
World Vision contributed funds to a group called the Islamic Relief Agency (ISRA), which had been under sanction since 2004 for providing funds to terrorist activists including dealings with Osama bin Laden.
“World Vision works to help people in need across the world, and that work is admirable. Though it may not have known that ISRA was on the sanctions list or that it was listed because of its affiliation with terrorism, it should have. Ignorance can’t suffice as an excuse. World Vision’s changes in vetting practices are a good first step, and I look forward to its continued progress.”
The Obama administration was rife with scandal despite protestations to the contrary.
Obama sicced the IRS on conservative nonprofit groups, stonewalled investigations into Operation Fast and Furious (that led to the deaths of two U.S. border agents), lied about the coordinated attack on the American embassy in Benghazi, and lied about Obamacare.
Obama also spied on journalists, jailed whistleblowers, and spied on the Trump campaign under false pretenses.
Grassley noted on his website:
“World Vision only discovered the sanctions issue when another non-profit aid group declined to work with them after doing their own due diligence and finding the affiliation between World Vision and the sanctioned ISRA.”
In order to cram through the Iran Nuclear Deal, Obama released pallets of cash to the Iranian regime and covered up the terrorist background of the prisoners released as part of the negotiation.
The corporate press could’ve found plenty of scandals to write about during the Obama administration if they were willing to do so.
Instead, they pretended as if his only “scandal” was wearing a tan suit in the Oval Office.
Late night comedians said they avoided jokes about Obama because it was too difficult to mine for comedic fodder.
Instead, they went for the low-hanging fruit by attacking Republicans for being Christians and other hacky material.
But Trump’s presidency exposed just how deep the media’s corruption runs.
