Trump Helping Iranians in Effort to Effect Regime Change – This Would Absolutely Destroy Obama’s Legacy

Elder Patriot – We have long believed there existed ample evidence of Barack Hussein Obama’s fealty to the Iranian Mullahs and their hegemonic designs on North Africa and the broader Middle East.  We were by no means the lone voice in verbalizing this:

In 2014 Michael Ledeen, former consultant to the National Security Council and U.S. Defense Department, recounted how retired Ambassador William G. Miller opened back-channel negotiations with Iran during the summer prior to the 2008 presidential campaign.

Ledeen wrote about Obama’s goals for Iran and the region:

“The actual strategy is detente first, and then a full alliance with Iran throughout the Middle East and North Africa.”

And yes, those negotiations, unlike the charges Obama trumped up against Michael Flynn, were in violation of 18 U.S. Code § 953 – Private correspondence with foreign governments commonly referred to as the Logan Act.

Nevertheless they showed Obama’s desire to help Iran expand its influence across the region.

George W. Bush had left the Iranian Mullahs vulnerable to regime change forced by the discontent of its citizens but Obama never recognized that as an option worth exploring.  He was always focused on strengthening their totalitarian hand not weakening it.

By the end of Hussein’s second term he had freed more than $150 Billion, including $1.6 Billion in cash, to Iran knowing that a significant portion of that money would go towards funding its worldwide terror network.  The deal he signed also paved the way for Iran to become a nuclear power by 2030. The deal was so bad that it took a fortune in bribes to our allies before they would sign on to it.

Unlike Obama, Donald Trump has no interest in playing the patsy for Islam or the Mullahs.  President Trump is interested in peace and prosperity and he understands that the Iranian people are educated, have modern beliefs, and do not approve of the Mullahs’ strident religious restrictions nor their sponsoring of terrorism.  He is encouraging them to grab for their future on their own.

When Trump pulled out of the Iran nuclear deal and encouraged the citizens of Iran to make their voices heard it seen as a show of support after the eight years that the Obama administration had ignored them and courted the Mullahs.

Now, realizing that they finally have the support of the U.S. president the Iranian people are responding to  Trump’s and began making their desire for regime change known through protests.

Last Thursday, as the protests began ratcheting up, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo tweeted encouragement to the Iranian people.

Yesterday, Senator Tom Cotton (R-AR) joined Pompeo in letting the Iranian people they had the support of freedom loving people around the world when he tweeted this:

The Iranian people are taking advantage of new technologies to connect with one another and to organize their campaign to overthrow the repressive regime that they live under.

 

The Daily Wire spoke with Hanif Jazayeri who is a leading political activist.  He told the Wire that:

“Since the start of 2018, there’s not been a day without anti-regime protests in at least several Iranian cities. Now they’ve reached the capital.”

If the Iranian people finally take control of their country Obama’s grand plan will have been defeated and another of his legacy policies will have been eradicated.
