Iran protests continue to spread, with demonstrators voicing dissatisfaction with the government and the economy. Mazir Bahari, an Iranian-Canadian journalist and a former political prisoner in Iran, says this is the result of decades of frustration among Iranians.
Just as Obama’s first term in office got underway, there were protestors in Iran against the sham elections put on the world stage by the Mullah and his regime. The group was seeking a greater democratic government in which the entire country could participate. The 2009 protest and uprising was harshly quelled.
What did Obama do during those days?
According to a Washington Times post of June 2009: Mr. Obama addressed the protests for the second day by saying he did not want to be seen as “meddling” in Iranian politics, though he did say “violence directed at peaceful protesters” is “not how governments should interact with their people.”
McCain ranted as did Romney and conservatives that Obama should have been speaking out against the corrupt election. Still Obama barely expressed any real angst at the Mullah or in any way encouraged the protests.
In part, he may have been right. The Mullah and others in the Middle East absolutely hate anything that appears as interference from the Western countries, most particularly the US. They have deliberately and vocally ranted in the streets about perceived interference.
However, some of the past eight years of violence and hate directed at the world and carried out within the Middle East might have been avoided had Obama not only stood strong but refused to supply any funds publicly or secretly that helped strengthen the regime.
During the unrest, Obama did not rule out the possibility of engaging with Iran over the nuclear issue. His administration officials and European diplomats however did put a different spin in suggesting that the door to nuclear treaty with Iran was all but closed as a result of the protests and actions of the Iranian government. Obviously they were only deflecting criticism and running with the suggestions of the NIAC to whom Obama turned to for advice.
“I think that under these circumstances, no one is going to be able to pursue anything because there is nothing to pursue,” said Trita Parsi, the president of the National Iranian American Council, who has been consulting with White House officials “on a daily basis,” he said, about the unfolding situation in Iran.
As columnist Eli Lake explained, writing for the Bloomberg, “Obama wasn’t just reluctant to show solidarity in 2009, he feared the demonstrations would sabotage his secret outreach to Iran.”
By 2015, not only had Obama “struck a deal” but there had been very large flow of cash, equipment, and weapons in the area. Some of the cash flow continued up until the day President Trump took office.
Many conservatives took the side that he was enabling the current government-run by Islamic radicals and that the horrific incident at Benghazi was a symptom of the Obama administration’s efforts to assist Iran and other fundamentalist/radical groups in the area. To highlight their concerns, the finger was pointed at all the Iranian Muslim influence being exerted daily within his inner sanctum.
President Obama’s Nuclear Deal allowed Iran access to assets frozen in the US to the tune of $100 billion. The Obama administration even shipped $1.7 billion in cash to the regime, described as ‘settlement of old legal claim.’ That is not even counting how much secretly had been moved around and shuffled from department to department ultimately ending up in the lap of his Mullah friend in Iran.
Not only was the voice of the people quelled but eight long years of horrific violence ensued. Violence that should by all rights be laid not just at the door of extremists but also those who enabled them. In particular Obama in his role as the president of one of the world’s foremost nations.
Obama might have turned the tide for a more democratic form of government in Iran at a time prior to the emergence of the more vicious animals following a so-called fundamentalist Islamic vision. It simply did not fit in with his plans nor was he willing to engage in strengthening anything US as we have since discovered.
The Mullah absorbed all that Obama sent him in order to continue his vision of military superiority to carry out some vague prophecy from the Dark Ages rather than to use it to help his people survive. From information filtering out, he has literally taken all of the money the citizens of Iran had stored in banks or hidden away and diverted it to his grand scheme as well.
Buoyed by the cash flow thanks to Obama-Kerry Nuclear Deal, the Iranian regime has more than likely overstretched itself militarily. It is said that they have been funding and manning pro-Iranian militia in Syria, Yemen and Lebanon. Tehran has also once again resumed aid to the Gaza-based Islamist terror outfit Hamas.
Iran’s Mullah may once again have been rudely wakened from his control of the worldwide Muslim community. The protests if accomplishing nothing else have pointed out why the Constitution made such a point of division between religion and republic. With Obama out of office, Iranian regime will be facing a hostile US administration this time as they go about crushing yet another uprising at home.
One thing that is obvious today, is that Iranian citizens have seen that President Trump is a far different leader than was Obama. With President Trump in office, the cash cow has been drastically reduced. Unfortunately the citizens are suffering. What only a few are addressing in MSM is that once again the Iranian people are attempting to take control of their country.
President Trump and others have voiced support rather than being determined to placate which is far different from prior statements of Obama.

Many reports of peaceful protests by Iranian citizens fed up with regime’s corruption & its squandering of the nation’s wealth to fund terrorism abroad. Iranian govt should respect their people’s rights, including right to express themselves. The world is watching! #IranProtests

“Iran’s leaders have turned a wealthy country with a rich history and culture into an economically depleted rogue state whose chief exports are violence, bloodshed, and chaos,” State Department spokeswoman Heather Nauert said in a statement. “As President Trump has said, the longest-suffering victims of Iran’s leaders are Iran’s own people.”
Again we see how globalists like Soros have interfered with countries, enabling those most aligned with their own plans to grow. It is definitely time to break their hold on countries who were for the most part living their lives as they chose and are now destroyed or nearly so by hate, bloodlust, and pure evil. All of this for the globalist bid to take over the world under one socialist government which has not and cannot ever work successfully.
