August 5, 2012, the Washington Post reported that senior Obama advisor, David Plouffe, had received $100,000 from a company that owns the multi-billion dollar Iranian cellular phone company Irancell. If your bank or business would do this they would face serious punishment!
The story seemed to be ignored by the mainstream and especially the White House press core until August 23, when a story by Patrick Caddell got the headline on breitbart.com.
Caddell asked, “What if, during the gathering-storm decade of the 1930s, a senior White House aide in the Franklin D. Roosevelt administration had been found to have taken big money from a company dealing closely with the Nazis? Would it would have been a huge scandal? ”
What about a Truman or Eisenhower advisor taking money from the Communists from the Soviet Union during the cold war? Would Americans have accepted that as status quo?
But in the Obama era, Caddell writes, a White House top aide in the Obama administration is revealed to have received a six-figure amount from a company connected to Iran, and nothing happens. The press doesn’t seem to care; the establishment is unruffled; even opposition Republicans have hardly noticed. If we, as a nation, had been this un-vigilant back during ’30s or the ’40s, America might not have survived.
It seems Plouffe, the manager of Obama’s 2008 election campaign and current senior advisor in the the White House, has been exempted from following the United States’ sanction rules against Iran.
Most of the Western nations have imposed U.S. led sanctions restricting business dealings with Iran through main international banking network. U.S. banks face severe penalties for doing business with Iran or companies known to be directly involved with the Iranian government. But it is no secret that China, Singapore and other Asian countries have stepped in with credit lines that have propped up the Ahmadinejad government.
As war in the mid-east nears, Israel is watching as Egypt’s new Islamic President aligns Egypt with Iran in the first state visit since the 1970′s. The U.S. President has know been exposed to have more top advisors aligned with the anti-Israel Islamist movement than with Christianity. Combined with the administration’s nationwide attack on God, Hillary Clinton’s close ties to the Muslim Sisterhood, and Obama’s obsession with degrading the military, this latest affront to America’s soverereignty and freedom-based political system, the Iran-White House financial connection, must be more closely examined.
