With all the garment rending and pearl-clutching going on in the Enslaved Press over Mike Flynn, I thought it might be a good idea to hop in the Way-Back Machine.
Let’s travel back to 2008 when then candidate Obama was sending secret emissaries to Tehran.
Remember hearing about that?
Well, if you’re a regular reader of PatriotRetort.com, you may recall I wrote about it in 2015. At the time, Democrats were howling over Senator Tom Cotton and 46 other Republicans signing on to a letter to the Ayatollah regarding the Iran Deal.
And once again, it becomes necessary to put a little perspective on current events.
Before the 2008 election, Barack Obama, using back channels, sent a communication to Iran telling them to hold off working with the Bush Administration. He assured them that he would be victorious in the November election and promised that he would be a “friend of Iran.”
Foreign Policy expert Michael Ledeen wrote about this communication at PJ Media back on August 29, 2014:
During his first presidential campaign in 2008, Mr. Obama used a secret back channel to Tehran to assure the mullahs that he was a friend of the Islamic Republic, and that they would be very happy with his policies. The secret channel was Ambassador William G. Miller, who served in Iran during the shah’s rule, as chief of staff for the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence, and as ambassador to Ukraine. Ambassador Miller has confirmed to me his conversations with Iranian leaders during the 2008 campaign.
Dr. Ledeen spoke with Mark Levin about this as well. Give it a listen.
Now, Obama was not President-elect at the time of these communications.
He was a first-term Senator running for President.
Where was the outrage from CNN? Do you remember seeing breathless reports about this in the New York Times or Washington Post? Was Dan Rather braying about what Senator Obama did being as bad as Watergate?
In fact, I know of no mainstream news outlet that even reported on this explosive story.
Breitbart did in March 2015 for much the same reason I wrote about it – specifically the Democrats’ response to Tom Cotton’s letter.
But other than that, nobody said a single thing.
And the reason is plain.
Reporting on a story that reveals collusion between a presidential candidate and an enemy state isn’t going to happen when that presidential candidate is Barack Hussein Obama.
Had a Republican candidate done what candidate Obama did, the Enslaved Press would have destroyed him. But because he was their pet candidate, they swept it under the rug and acted like it never happened.
Knowing this makes me highly suspicious of the breathless outrage coming from the news media over Mike Flynn.
This is a coordinated hit job concocted by Obama loyalists and aided and abetted by an Enslaved Press.
And the irony is, it is all being done to protect Obama’s precious “Iran Deal.”
The Enslaved Press’ over-the-top reporting and feigned righteous indignation rises to a level of absurdity I didn’t think possible.
And with any other Republican President, this coordinated political assassination may have succeeded in bringing down an administration.
But these people forget Donald Trump isn’t a “business as usual” Republican.
And these outdated tactics are going to blow up in their faces like a trick cigar.
