“The traitor rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murderer is less to fear. The traitor is the plague.” – Marcus Tullius Cicero, 1st century B.C.
President Obama lied to the American people about his $400 million payment to Iran, GOP presidential Donald Trump shouted during a rally in Virginia on Saturday. And during Trump’s speech he more than once predicted that the Iranians will use such payments to upgrade their proxy war against Israel and the United States through the terrorist group Hezbollah.
In addition, the prospect of a Hillary Clinton presidency increases the dangers posed by an Iran continuing its nuclear weapons program and continuing its performance as a state-sponsor of Islamic terrorism.
Michael Scheuer, former Chief of the CIA [Osama] bin Laden unit, offered a recent perspective on presidential candidate Hillary Clinton: “A likely felon/traitor who is utterly dependent on her sexual-predator husband, has accomplished nothing in her life except a superb talent for deceit, and the gains made by her family’s graft, influence peddling, and corruption. This is a person so devoid of integrity, honesty, and character that her two major concerns seem to be to pocket more lucre for herself, and to ensure that human babies always can be profitably murdered, dismembered, and sold for parts right up to their due date.”
Speaking about President Barack Obama, Scheuer said, “Barack Obama, the pride of the Ivy League, the darling of the media, and a man who can only be described as ignorant, stupid, or a liar. In his oh-so-superior speech to the convention, Obama said that Hillary Clinton was the most prepared/experienced candidate for the presidency in U.S. history, adding ‘better than you or me Bill.’ Well, Obama was right on one count, he is certainly the least-prepared person ever to be president.”
According to American intelligence sources, Iran contributes approximately $250 million a year to Hezbollah. Iran also provides Hezbollah with extensive military aid and support worth hundreds of millions of dollars a year, say researchers at Israel’s Meir Amit Information Center.
The military infrastructure Hezbollah has constructed in Lebanon with Iranian support is intended, in due time, to be used against Israel in accordance with Iranian interests. That was manifested as recently as last month, in a speech given by Hossein Salami, deputy commander of the Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps (IRGC), for Global Jerusalem Day. He said that in Lebanon alone there were more than a hundred thousand missiles ready for launching against Israel. Also ready for launching were tens of thousands of long-range missiles in other areas of the Muslim world. All the missiles, he said were for “removing Israel once and for all from the political geography of the entire world”
The IRGC leader repeated that Hezbollah’s entire budget came from Iran, and “as long as Iran has money, we have money.” “No [American] law,” he said, “can keep the money from reaching us.” He claimed that even when sanctions had been imposed on Iran, “the money allotted to Hezbollah continued to reach us.” Nasrallah thanked Iranian Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei for Iran’s support throughout all the years of Hezbollah’s existence, according to Meir Amit.
Meanwhile on Saturday, Lebanese Hezbollah fighters and Pro-Assad military forces continued to batter Jeish al-Fatah terrorists in the Southern and Southwestern districts of Aleppo, military sources said Saturday.
“Hezbollah fighters traced and targeted a large group of terrorists that were retreating from military academy buildings to safer areas,” the Fars News Agency said, adding, “Scores of Jeish al-Fatah members were killed by Hezbollah fighters and dozens of them were killed or injured in Hezbollah-planted landmines and explosive traps on their way.”
“Hezbollah fighters also gunned down at least five snipers of the terrorist groups near military academy buildings,” Fars News Agency said.
“Syrian soldiers and Hezbollah launched also new rounds of attacks on Jeish al-Fatah’s centers near cement factory towards military academy buildings, while other units of army and Hezbollah stormed terrorists’ defense lines near the village of al-Moshrefeh and heights of al-Mahrouqat and al-Jam’eiyat,” they said.
“The pro-government forces cut off the road connecting al-Ramousiyeh to Khan Touman and deployed their forces near height of Um al-Qar’a which overlooks military academy buildings.”
