Would Barack (You’re gonna save $2,500 a year …) Obama ever lie to the American people? Not unless he knew the US media had his back, which is a given.

Iranian television has broadcast what some say is purported footage of the $400 million pallets of cash that officials claim was part of the “expensive price” paid by the Obama administration to free several U.S. hostages.

The footage, which could not be independently verified, shows images of large stacks of hard currency and features claims that the Obama administration sent this money over as part of an effort to free several U.S. hostages. The White House vehemently denied these claims this week following new reports about the cash exchange.

BBC Persian reporter Hadi Nili posted the footage on Twitter, describing it as showing the “pallets of cash” and quoting officials as saying “this was just part of the ‘expensive price’ to release Americans.”

The footage also claims that the Obama administration insisted the negotiations over the matter take place in secret and threatened Iranian officials who may have leaked information to the media.

Republican Presidential candidate Donald Trump referenced the footage in remarks this week, claiming that it is part of an effort by Iran to embarrass the United States.

“They have a perfect tape, done by obviously a government camera and the tape is of the people taking the money off the plane, right?” Trump said. “That means that in order to embarrass us further, Iran sent us the tapes, right?”

“It’s a military tape; it’s a tape that was a perfect angle, nice and steady, nobody getting nervous because they’re gonna be shot because they’re shooting a picture of money pouring off a plane,” Trump said.

The footage is part of a February documentary published by Iran’s Tasnim News Agency, which is affiliated with the Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps.

The documentary purported to reveal behind-the-scenes details of the negotiations with the United States to free the American hostages. It maintains the negotiations were tied up in efforts to push the Iran nuclear agreement forward as it moved towards implementation.

    ESPN loses 4 million subscribers in past year.


    Not surprising. If viewers had a choice, the loss of subscribers would be much higher.

    Trump has a golden opportunity to turn this thing around in a flash. Here is the recipe:

    1) Admit he made a mistake, and apologize to the Khan family (yes, even though the muzz is a snake, it’s the politically expedient thing to do).
    2) Chalk it up to not being a career politician…and underscore the insincerity of the focus grouped, consultant vetted canned responses.
    3) Explain to the public that he can and will learn from this mistake.
    4) Finally say directly to your opponent, “Hillary Clinton, now that I have come clean and admitted my mistake, I call on you to do the same…admit to the public that you are a liar…that you lied to the Benghazi families, that you lied to the congress about your emails, and that even in the face of a scathing FBI report clearly showing that you lied, you lied about lying. Hillary, I have admitted my mistake and will learn from it…will you please do the same and admit what America already knows…that you are a liar?”

    Just words, bc.

    I doubt the camps will come together, but he must have weighed the party unity thing.

    Long haul, Trump will rise again.

    14 – Pretty much, I doubt there is anyone alive that believes he actually wants either to win their primaries. lol

    Last night on YourVoiceRadio, Nehlen said he would understand if Trump had to endorse Ryan for the sake of party unity. It was almost like he was giving him permission to do it — or almost like both have seen those on-the-ground polls the campaigns pay big bucks for, and they both know Nehlen’s got this.

    You can listen to the broadcast here, and play only the Nehlen part if you want. Bill Mitchell breaks it up for you to make it easy to listen to only what you want to listen to:
