Biden May Let Iran Collect Billions for Release of U.S. Hostages

“Iran also expects the United States to unfreeze billions of dollars in Iranian assets.”

What’s worse than a formal deal with Iran? An informal deal with the Islamic terror state.

The enforcement elements of the formal deal were mostly worthless and put Iran on a track to nukes. You can only imagine how truly spectacularly reliable they’ll be on the informal deal.

The Biden administration has been negotiating quietly with Iran to limit Tehran’s nuclear program and free imprisoned Americans, according to officials from three countries, in part of a larger U.S. effort to ease tensions and reduce the risk of a military confrontation with the Islamic Republic.

The U.S. goal is to reach an informal, unwritten agreement, which some Iranian officials are calling a “political cease-fire.” It would aim to prevent a further escalation in a long-hostile relationship that has grown even more fraught as Iran builds up a stockpile of highly enriched uranium close to bomb-grade purity, supplies Russia with drones for use in Ukraine and brutally cracks down on domestic political protests.

Islam does allow cease-fires with infidels. But the cease-fire only lasts until the Islamic cause is in a position to annihilate the infidels it reached a cease-fire agreement with.

The upshot of the deal is that Iran promises not to enrich uranium beyond a certain point, will stop trying to kill Americans in Iraq, and won’t aid Russia too much. In return, sanctions relief, as per usual.

Also cash for hostages.

“Iran also expects the United States to unfreeze billions of dollars in Iranian assets, whose use would be limited to humanitarian purposes, in exchange for the release of three Iranian American prisoners whom the U.S. calls wrongfully detained. U.S. officials have not confirmed such a linkage between the prisoners and the money, nor any connection between prisoners and nuclear matters.”

“In what could be a sign of a developing agreement, the United States issued a waiver last week allowing Iraq to pay $2.76 billion in energy debts to Iran.”

Iran’s negotiating style tends to depend on playing hard to get. It’s not that its negotiators are more talented, but they understand that they represent national interests and that they’re playing an enemy.

Our negotiators want to give up everything in exchange for the reassurance that they’re making the world a better place.

Much like Hitler and Chamberlain, it’s not much of a competition.

The only remaining question is how many billions will Biden let Iran have in exchange for more hostages.

While We Were Watching Airports, Islamic Terrorists Won Our Children~US Army private converts to Islam, plots to blow up NYC’s 9/11 memorial

Americans continue converting to Islam and joining ISIS.

Cole James Bridges went to a high school in Clarkesville, Tennessee, and worked at a Papa John's pizza place near Akron, Ohio before joining the United States Army. Mateo Ventura was a high school student in Wakefield, Massachusetts.

Within a week of each other in June 2023, Bridges pled guilty to plotting to help ISIS kill American soldiers, while Ventura was arrested for trying to provide aid to the Islamic State.

Bridges and Ventura, 20 and 18 years old, like Trevor Bickford, 19, of Maine, who was hit with federal charges this year for attacking NYPD police officers with a machete in Times Square, and Xavier Pelkey, 18, also of Maine, who pled guilty in April after trying to recruit two underage teens for a terrorist attack in Chicago, show the rate at which ordinary American teens are converting to Islam and plotting terrorist attacks.

While we made everyone take their shoes off at the airport and labored to win hearts and minds in Afghanistan and Iraq, Islamic terrorists won the hearts and minds of our children.

Our national security establishment feverishly imagined vast Al Qaeda attack plots while ignoring the real attack. An attack so deep and so wounding that it is far more devastating than September 11. It was an attack aided and abetted by the government, our cultural establishment, and entertainment industries which urged Americans to learn about and embrace Islam.

Teenagers like Bridges, Ventura, Bickford, Pelkey, and many others did. While Muslim immigrants still make up a significant percentage of Islamic terror plots, they increasingly come from American teenagers who converted to Islam. And, unlike past Muslim terror converts who followed a familiar path from drug dealing to prison to terrorism, these are our boys.

Except they’re not ours anymore.

Bridges lyrically spoke of the Islamic terrorists of ISIS as “brothers who have been fighting to establish a Khilafah” or caliphate, and “have inspired me a lot, they’re (sic) love for Allah.”

Ventura wanted to fight a “war on kuffar” or non-Muslims.

Bickford carried an Islamic text and underlined the words, “fight in the Name of Allah and in the Cause of Allah. Fight against those who do not believe in Allah. Wage a holy war.” He wrote in his journal that he wanted a traditional Muslim burial and did not want to be buried “in the land of the kuffar”. If he died while killing Americans, he did not want to be laid to rest in America.

Pelkey, who changed his name to Abdullah, wrote that he wanted to “burst thru the door of Jihad in America and strike fear in the hearts of these kafirins. Nothing pisses these American kuffar off and scares them more than a term they use ‘homegrown terrorist.’”

Their plans for Islamic mass murder, Bridges wanted to attack the 9/11 memorial, Pelkey was going to burst into a synagogue separate the adults from the children, and then kill the adults, have received what little attention a broken country has to spare for the kind of story that people don’t even pay attention to anymore. We are so busy fighting each other that we hardly even look up when the next generation converts to Islam and signs up with Al Qaeda or ISIS.

Americans used to associate Islamic converts with black nationalist groups, but this is no longer the case. Latinos, like Bridges (raised by a stepfather, his mother’s last name was Gonzalez), are the fastest-growing population of converts, but a quarter of converts to Islam are white.

In the UK, young white Muslim converts like 19-year-old Matthew King, whose mother turned him in after an attack plot on British soldiers, or Lewis Ludlow, who changed his name to Ali Hussain and pled guilty to scouting out targets like St Paul’s Cathedral and Madame Tussauds, are also becoming more commonplace.

There are certain common denominators among Muslim converts as there are among school shooters. Bickford was being raised by a stepfather while Ventura had been bullied in school. Bickford’s father had died of a drug overdose, and Pelkey was living with his mother and an autistic younger brother.

Like most cults, the new mosque recruits are lost and looking for somewhere to belong. Missing fathers and a general sense of alienation are common themes. America no longer provides a sense of identity and even institutions like the U.S. Army don’t offer any real purpose. Falling through the spreading cracks of an imploding culture, they join gangs, movements, and Islam.

What too few Americans understood after the September 11 attacks was that this was a culture war. Foreign Muslim terrorists could kill us by the thousands and perhaps even one day the hundreds of thousands, but even at expanding immigration rates it would take generations for them to demographically conquer us. Unlike Europe, America has a more robust birth rate, in part because of migration from south of the border. We would have to conquer ourselves.

The Bush administration responded to 9/11 with an ambitious effort to democratize the Muslim world, unaware and uncaring of the Muslim world’s parallel effort to Islamize America. The withdrawal from Afghanistan, like the failure of the Arab Spring and the rise of ISIS, collapsed the project to democratize the Muslim world. But the Islamization of America is succeeding.

What does Islam offer that we don’t? Patriarchy for fatherless boys, the illusion of belonging to a global Islamic Ummah, the promise of a system of moral order with the creation of the Caliphate, and the escape from a culture that no longer stands for much except comic book movies and politics.

Pop culture and politics have become the religions of a declining nation. In the midst of the culture war, many Americans from both sides have developed hostility and contempt for their own country. Others retreat to imaginary pop culture universes to debate the ins and outs of their devotion to Marvel, Star Wars, or Taylor Swift with the intensity once reserved for theology.

Americans are becoming less patriotic and religious and the falloff is most pronounced among the young. It is no coincidence that Islamic recruitment of American teens is booming in areas where traditional organized religion is declining. Is it surprising that Maine, the third least religious state where barely a quarter described themselves as Christians, produced two Islamic terror converts? A decade ago, only 34% of people in the state believed religion was very important. But just because people abandon traditional churches, doesn’t mean that teenagers and twenty-somethings will give up on religion. They will find people who really believe.

And the Jihad really believes.

We are not just losing the military and demographic wars, but the even more important cultural war. America’s political and cultural establishment embraced Islam. And this is the result.

All the episodes of ‘24’ envisioning complicated plots of mass murder were off the mark. What happened instead was that the plotters got on planes, landed, and moved here. They set up mosques and schools, they became reporters, executives, and members of congress. Like their leftist allies, they fought the war from the inside and we did not so much lose as surrender.

A generation of young men, born after 9/11 and the end of the War on Terror, were urged to learn about Islam, the way they’re encouraged to learn about sex changes. Some castrated themselves and pretended to be women, others joined ISIS instead.

When life looks senseless and meaningless, each day filled with mechanical routines and hollow entertainment, the human soul needs to reach for something that promises more.

America is not becoming irreligious, it is losing its religions and finding new gods. Some of those gods tell their followers to kill the infidels, attack the 9/11 memorial and kill until America is Islamic.

As we take off our shoes at the airport, a new generation is losing its soul.

There is a steady stream of converts to Islam who engage in, or attempt to engage in violent jihad. Yet authorities show absolutely no interest whatsoever in why this is a recurring phenomenon. It is likely that if there were a large number of converts to Christianity who were turning to terrorism, their attitude would be totally different.

“Terrorist amongst the troops: US Army private, 22, pleads guilty to trying to help ISIS kill soldiers in the Middle East and blow up NYC’s 9/11 memorial… but was actually talking to an FBI agent,” by Noa Halff,, June 14, 2023:

A 22-year-old former Army soldier has pleaded guilty to trying to help ISIS attack and kill American soldiers in the Middle East.

Cole James Bridges from Stow, Ohio, also known as Cole Gonzales, faces 40 years in prison for ‘attempting to provide material support to a designated foreign terrorist organization’ and ‘attempting to murder U.S. military service members.’

Bridges, who was arrested in January 2021, pleaded guilty on Wednesday before US District Judge Lewis J Liman.

The active-duty soldier was arrested in Georgia after speaking to an undercover FBI agent he thought was a member of ISIS online about plots to blow up New York City’s 9/11 Memorial and attack service members in the Middle East.

US Attorney Damian Williams said Wednesday: ‘As he admitted in court today, Cole Bridges attempted to orchestrate a murderous ambush on his fellow soldiers in service of ISIS and its violent ideology.’…

Bridges joined the US Army in September 2019 and was assigned as a cavalry scout at Fort Stewart.

Before his arrest, the then 20-year-old was with the Third Infantry Division out of Georgia when he thought he was communicating with ISIS online about the terrorism plots.

Unbeknownst to Bridges, a federal agent was in on the chat as Bridges provided detailed instructions on tactics and manuals and advice about attacking the memorial and other targets in New York City, Nicholas Biase, a spokesperson for Manhattan federal prosecutors said in 2021.

Around the same time, Bridges allegedly began researching online propaganda promoting jihadists, and expressed his support for ISIS and jihad on social media.

In October 2020, Bridges began communicating with the undercover FBI agent posing as an ISIS supporter in contact with ISIS fighters in the Middle East.

During these exchanges, according to the US Justice Department, Bridges ‘expressed his frustration with the U.S. military and his desire to aid ISIS.’

Bridges then allegedly began to supply the undercover agent with instructions for purported ISIS fighters on how to attack US forces serving in the Middle East, and went so far as to diagram specific military maneuvers to maximize the lethality of the attacks.

In the weeks before his arrest, Bridges sent the bogus ISIS supporter video of himself in body armor standing before a flag often used by ISIS fighters and making a gesture symbolic of support for the terrorist organization.

He later sent a second video in which he used a voice manipulator to narrate a propaganda speech in support of the anticipated ambush by ISIS on US troops, according to the federal prosecutors.

Bridges ‘further provided advice about the best way to fortify an ISIS encampment to repel an attack by U.S. Special Forces, including by wiring certain buildings with explosives to kill the U.S. troops,’ according to the Justice Department….







BURISMA JOE: New DeSantis Ad Goes Scorched Earth on Biden Crime Family~FBI Source: Bidens ‘Coerced’ Burisma Exec to Pay $10 Million in Bribes

“For years, the Biden crime family cashed in on Joe’s influence and power, especially in Ukraine where Hunter and Joe secretly received millions of dollars in bribes from the gas company Burisma..."

FBI Source: Bidens ‘Coerced’ Burisma Exec to Pay $10 Million in Bribes

Despite the White House’s best efforts to laugh off the ongoing investigation of the Biden Crime Family and the most recent revelations of bribery to the tune of $10 million ($5 million for Joe and $5 million for Hunter), they’re not going away.

In fact, new unsettling details regarding the FD-1023 document are trickling out. Earlier this week, we learned the FBI had heavily redacted the document, including the part allegedly revealing there are 17 recordings of Mykola Zlochevsky, co-founder of Burisma Holdings, bribing the Bidens (15 featuring Hunter Biden and two with then-Vice President Joe Biden), which Zlochevsky recorded as “insurance” to protect himself. The latest allegation that has come out is that the FD-1023 document contains testimony from a confidential human source (CHS) claiming that the Bidens exerted pressure on Zlochevsky to pay them the bribes.

The Federalist has now learned the FD-1023 reported the CHS saying the Bidens “coerced” Zlochevsky to pay the bribes. Sources familiar with the investigation also explained the context of Zlochevsky’s statements, and that context further bolsters the CHS’s reporting.

In the FD-1023 from June 30, 2020, the confidential human source summarized earlier meetings he had with Zlochevsky. According to the CHS, in the 2015-2016 timeframe, the CHS, who was providing advice to Zlochevsky, told the Burisma owner to stay away from the Bidens. Then, after Trump defeated Hillary Clinton in the 2016 presidential contest, the CHS asked Zlochevsky if he was upset Trump won.

Zlochevsky allegedly told the CHS he was dismayed by Trump’s victory, fearing an investigation would reveal his payments to the Biden family, which included a $5 million payment to Hunter Biden and a $5 million payment to Joe Biden. According to the CHS, the Burisma executive bemoaned the situation, claiming the Bidens had “coerced” him into paying the bribes.

The CHS responded that he hoped Zlochevsky had taken precautions to protect himself. Zlochevsky then allegedly detailed the steps he had taken to avoid detection, stressing he had never paid the “Big Guy” directly and that it would take some 10 years to unravel the various money trails. It was only then that Zlochevsky mentioned the audio recordings he had made of the conversations he had with Hunter and Joe Biden, according to the CHS.

As Margot Cleveland at The Federalist notes, “The broader context of this conversation adds to the plausibility of Zlochevsky’s claims that he possessed recordings implicating the Bidens.” In fact, the source is alleged to be a longtime FBI informant.

Thugs, Gangs, and Other Criminals Welcome Chicago’s New Mayor

Thugs, Gangs, and Other Criminals Welcome Chicago's New Mayor With 38% Spike in Crime His First Month

Thugs, Gangs, and Other Criminals Welcome Chicago's New Mayor With 38% Spike in Crime His First Month

How glad is Chicago’s criminal element to see new Mayor Brandon Johnson? The gangs, the thugs, and other criminals have been busy since Mayor Brandon Johnson took office on May 15. Crime has shot up an astonishing 38% — a sign that whatever Johnson is going to do about crime and public safety, he’d better get busy.

Washington Examiner:

Vehicle thefts spiked by 153%, aggravated battery is up 17%, burglary jumped by 12%, and even shootings rose 5%. A few weeks ago, carjackings got so bad the Chicago Police Department had to issue a “community alert urging residents to be more vigilant about their surroundings and to always be on the lookout for suspicious activity when entering or leaving vehicles.”

The lone exception to this pattern is murders, which went down by 5%. In raw numbers, it means there were only three fewer people killed.

Thank the Lord for small favors. Note that shootings still rose 5% while murders are down, indicating that Chicago’s gangs still need some target practice before the summer gets into full swing.

It should be obvious that my tongue is planted firmly in my cheek in pretending to blame Johnson for the increase in crime. Chicago’s crime has risen 56% over the last four years, according to the Examiner’s Jack Elbaum, and Johnson hasn’t been in office long enough to do anything. But that number alone should be a call to rally the police, the citizens, and activists to unite in an effort to retake control of their city from a criminal element that doesn’t care if they live or die in their turf wars and endless vendettas.

Once before, Chicagoans came together to fight gangsters. Prohibition-era gangs had the city in their pocket. Police, aldermen, and even the mayor — Big Bill Thompson — did the bidding of the gangsters. The myth that Eliot Ness came to town and cleaned up the city is hardly accurate, but the methods used to fight and defeat the gangsters aren’t a myth. The city’s elites came together and, along with some courageous prosecutors, eventually got the worst of the gangsters off the streets and sent them to prison.

But before any progress can be made, Johnson has to recognize there’s a problem in the first place.

“We are putting hundreds of millions of dollars now into violence prevention and intervention and disruption,” Johnson said. “We are already seeing the dividends of that.”


“We need to be making sure that we are solving violent crimes,” Johnson said. “That will work as a deterrence, so that is important.”

The force of 1,300 detectives in the city probably had to ask Johnson to repeat himself. Johnson, who supported the “defund the police” movement, wanted to disband many of the specialized units that worked to solve violent crime. He changed his tune while running for office and said he never supported defunding the police.

Johnson is a man in serious denial bordering on delusion. He says there needs to be a better “characterization” of Chicago’s young people. 

“There has been a lot of mischaracterization of our young people in the city of Chicago,” Johnson said. “Do we have individuals who have lived out their pain in the most violent ways? Of course, but the vast majority of our young people need and want opportunity.”

“Lived out their pain”? What a load of crap. Youth violence is a learned behavior and a product of bad role models for young black teens and men.

Chicago has seen nine teens under the age of 19 die from violence in the past month compared to four during the same timeframe last year. Johnson needs to be educated about the realities facing young black men on the streets, and I can guarantee it has nothing whatsoever to do with “individuals who have lived out their pain in the most violent ways.”
