U.S. Agency Promoting Trade With Iran Despite Trump Opposition

The U.S. Department of Agriculture is promoting increased trade with Iran, despite clear opposition to this policy by the Trump White House, according to multiple sources who described the agency’s behavior as rogue and part of a lingering effort by the former Obama administration to promote international trade with the Islamic Republic.

A July report released by USDA praises the Obama administration’s efforts to open trade with Iran following the landmark nuclear agreement that dropped major sanctions on the Islamic Republic. The report contradicts White House policy on Iran, which has taken an increasingly hardline against increased relations with Iran under President Donald Trump.

The report is being viewed by administration insiders and regional experts as the product of efforts by the former Obama administration to promote positive propaganda about Iran in a bid to boost support for the Iran deal.

Deep State Drops Friday Leak On AG Sessions To Juice Up Russian Hysteria

Fake News WaPo dropped another Deep State leak Friday afternoon to juice up the Russian hysteria as they claim AG Jeff Sessions spoke to a Russian envoy twice during the 2016 presidential election.

Russian envoy Sergey Kislyak’s accounts of two conversations with Jeff Sessions, who was at the time a Senator from Alabama, were intercepted by U.S. spy agencies, according to WaPo. This is only further proof that Obama was spying on and unmasking GOP lawmakers during the 2016 presidential election.

GREAT TRUMP: Promised To Cut Two Regulations For Every New One. He’s CRUSHING That.

Over first 6 months, the Trump administration has cut 16 old regulations for every new one added.

Donald Trump is far outpacing his promise to cut two regulations for every new one implemented. In fact, to the delight of fiscal conservatives across the country, he’s running circles around it to the tune of 16 regulations eliminated for each new one proposed.

The 16-to-1 ratio comes via numbers presented in a report this week from the Office of Management and Budget that shows the administration is holding true to its vow to be business-friendly, as opposed to the Obama administration which churned out regulations at a jaw-dropping pace. In Obama’s final year in office, the Federal Register, which lists the proposed and final regulations of federal agencies, set the record for the highest page-count ever: 81,640 pages.

The Final Anniversary of the Failed Dodd-Frank – Congressman Roger Williams

Seven years after its launch in 2010, the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act has done nothing for American taxpayers besides provide 2,300 pages of impulsive and deceiving legislation. This disaster of a law has unfairly blanketed our entire financial system with more than 400 overreaching and costly mandates.

Dodd-Frank was another ploy thought up by the Democrat-controlled Congress that was signed into law by President Obama in 2010. This failure, at best, was a Band-Aid disguised as the most significant piece of financial legislation of its time following the Great Recession. While there are many who argue that the financial collapse in 2008 was caused by lack of regulation, overregulation has made it almost impossible for small businesses to thrive.

Leaked Obama Plan To Fight Election-Day Meddling Included ‘Martial Law’

Former US President Barack Obama has been criticized by both Republicans and fellow Democrats for withholding information about Russia’s alleged interference in the US presidential election – criticism that has only intensified since President Donald Trump triumphed over Democrat Hillary Clinton in the November election.

Now, in yet another troubling sign that the Obama administration believed outside hacking groups posed a significant threat to the election, Time magazine reports that his administration had devised a detailed plan to fend off any cyberattaks that sought to falsify vote totals during the election. Obama has been criticized for not informing the American people about hacking attemps allegedly carried out by Russia-linked groups for fear of “rocking the boat” and damaging Clinton’s chances of victory.

Fmr. U.N. Amb. Power Emerges As Central Figure In Obama Unmasking Investigation

Former United Nations Ambassador Samantha Power’s involvement in the unmasking by former Obama administration officials of sensitive national security information is raising red flags over what insiders view was an attempt by the former administration to undermine President Donald Trump and key figures on his team, according to current and former U.S. officials familiar with the situation.

Power appears to be central to efforts by top Obama administration officials to identify individuals named in classified intelligence community reports related to Trump and his presidential transition team, according to multiple sources.

The names of Trump allies in the raw intelligence reports were leaked to the press in what many in Congress and the current administration claim is an attempt by Obama allies and former officials to damage the White House.
