Opinion and Commentary By Donna Westfall – October 14, 2023
There are smart people and there are dumb people. Unfortunately, we have one of the dumbest people in the highest office of our government: Joe Biden.
Scotch taped to my office wall is this quote from Donald J. Trump regarding the withdrawal from Afghanistan:
“First you bring out all of the American citizens. Then you bring out ALL equipment. Then you bomb the bases into smithereens – AND THEN YOU BRING OUT THE MILITARY. You don’t do it in reverse order like Biden and our woke Generals did. No chaos, no death – they wouldn’t even know we left!”
So our President makes the incredibly dumb decision to release $6 Billion in frozen assets back to Iran in a deal for the release of five (5) US hostages.
It’s already a fact that Iran is the largest donor to the Hamas group. It’s reported that Iran conspired in the monstrous attack on Israel. Also known that American’s are among the hostages taken by Hamas.
What else is known?
Hamas monsters savagely murdering innocent men, women and children including smothering, burning and beheading babies. Let’s face it, I don’t find too much difference between the Hamas monsters and American women killing their just born babies with the aid of their abortion doctors. But that’s just my personal opinion.
Getting back to the $6 Billion, will this be a temporary or permanent freeze? You never know when Dumb President Biden will change his mind, what mind he has left that is. Because between his declining mental cognition, declining health, and add to that falling up and down the stairs, should we be surprised when six months from now he then releases the assets?
We just saw Dianne Feinstein pass away and most of us realized she should have left office long before. How much longer do we have to put up with an incompetent President? Sure, I realize that that Kamala Harris is regrettably a horrible replacement. Just a note: Alphonsa Butler moved back to California from Maryland to finish off Senator Feinstein’s term. She worked on Kamala Harris’ campaign as Senior Advisor and as President of EMILY’s list, contributed $10 million to Harris’ campaign for VP. Then, on Ootober 3rd, VP Kamala Harris administered the oath of office to Ms. Butler to resounding applause by our mostly Democratic Senate floor and gallery.
According to Brigitte Gabriel of Act for America, “Qatar and the US will be freezing the funds indefinitely.”
What role does Qatar have in this transaction? The money had been transferred to Iranian accounts in Qatar. But it starts years ago with South Korea and former President Trump:
In 2019, then-U.S. President Donald Trump imposed a total ban on Iran’s oil exports, stranding a payment of US$6 billion for Iranian oil to South Korea in a South Korean bank. In September, the U.S. (Biden) unfroze the money and transferred it to the Qatari bank as part of a prisoner swap deal with Iran.
What’s the phrase that pertains to this: Money talks, BS walks.
I don’t think this will get anyone to the bargaining table, but I hope I’m wrong.
