Barack Obama Addresses His People — on Iran TV—and Blames United States of America!
This world news is very disturbing—even heartbreaking. But we must face truth, no matter how ugly it is. As we have seen, ignoring it will not make it go away. C.D.
RUSH: You know, folks, that election in Israel, the victory, Benjamin Netanyahu, that has really confounded Obama. Do you know what Obama did? He recorded a video address to the people of Iran and blamed the hardliners in both of our countries, he’s telling the people of Iran, for all the mess that’s going on in the Middle East. It’s unprecedented.
President Obama has used the Nowruz statement to speak directly to the people of Iran. And what he did, he compared Iranian hardliners to Americans who are skeptical of his nuclear deal with Iran. So here’s the president of the United States speaking to the people of Iran. He is in the process of arranging and negotiating a nuclear deal with the mullahs of Iran, which will give them a nuclear weapon in ten years, if we are to believe what we’re being told about the deal.
Obama goes on television in Iran to complain about Americans. And he equates the American people who disagree with him to hardliners in Iran who disagree with their government. He compares Iranian hardliners to Americans who are skeptical of his deal. We must have audio sound bites of this. It’s unprecedented. An American president addressing the Iranians. Here. Just listen.
OBAMA: Hello. To everyone celebrating Nowruz — across the United States and in countries around the world — Nowruz Mubarak. This year we had the best opportunity in decades to pursue a different future between our countries. Just over a year ago we reached an initial understanding regarding Iran’s nuclear program. I believe that our countries should be able to resolve this issue peacefully with diplomacy. Iran’s supreme leader, Ayatollah Khamenei, has issued a fatwa against the development of nuclear weapons, and President Rouhani has said that Iran would never develop a nuclear weapon.
RUSH: Oh, my, folks, be still my beating brain. What in the world is going on here? So the president of the United States addresses his people, the Iranians. To everyone celebrating Nowruz across the United States? Did we let the kids out of school today for Nowruz? (interruption) Yeah, we didn’t, but we should have. Nowruz is not a national holiday in America? Well, the sacrilege of that. Nowruz and in countries around the world, Nowruz Mubarak he said, Nowruz Mubarak. What in the world is going on here? “This year we have the best opportunity in decades to pursue a different future between our countries.”
He’s talking to the leaders, the people who are imprisoned by the state sponsors of terrorism, the biggest worldwide sponsors of terrorism. “I believe that our country should be able to resolve this issue –” why are we even talking to Iran? Can somebody answer a question, why are we even talking to them? We’re so far gone that we’ve lost sight of that basic question. Why in the world are we talking to Iran? Why are we negotiating the whole subject of nuclear weaponry with them?
Now here’s Obama on television siding with the mullahs and telling the people of Iran, hey, you know what? I just got off the phone with the Ayatollah Khamenei, and he’s issued a fatwa against nuclear weapons. Are you kidding me? Does anybody really believe this? That the Ayatollah Khamenei has issued a fatwa against nuclear weapons, and Obama’s on Iranian TV telling them this? “I believe our countries should be able to resolve the issue.” What issue? What are we talking to them about? What is the issue?
This is absurd. But it’s beyond absurd. This is surreal. So our ally, Israel, has a presidential election. Netanyahu wins in a landslide, and Obama is so ticked off, he decides that Israel’s not worthy of friendship anymore because this victory of Netanyahu is such a diss that he’s gonna sidle up to the Iranians? Here’s another excerpt from the president’s speech to the people of Iran and all the other nations, including the United States, celebrating Nowruz Mubarak around the world.
OBAMA: The days and weeks ahead will be critical. Our negotiations have made progress, but gaps remain. And there are people, in both our countries and beyond, who oppose a diplomatic resolution.
RUSH: To what?
OBAMA: My message to you — the people of Iran — is that, together, we have to speak up for the future we seek. It’s up to all of us, Iranians and Americans, to seize this moment and the possibilities that can bloom in this new season. Thank you, and Noroozetan Pirooz.
RUSH: What in the world, folks, is happening here. Why, if there’s a fatwa in Iran against nuclear weapons, why in the world do we need a diplomatic resolution? A diplomatic resolution to what? “There are people in both our countries and beyond who oppose the diplomatic –” What are we diplomacizing here, if there’s a fatwa against nukes? What, are there some rogue elements in Iran developing a nuclear weapon despite the fatwa against it by the Ayatollah Khamenei? “It’s all up to us, Iranians and Americans.” We are allied? We are now allied with the Iranians in that region? Noroozetan Pirooz? Really?
CALLER: In the eighties, when I was in my thirties, the Iranians took our people hostage when the ayatollah took over, and they paraded them around for two years, blindfolded. Which I don’t know about you, but after about six months of it I was getting PO’d. A lot of people out there didn’t live through it but in this Iraq war we just had, the Iranians were smuggling in IEDs that blew up a lot of our soldiers.
CALLER: They were killed and maimed.
RUSH: That’s right.
CALLER: And I don’t see how we’re having any dealings with them at all.
RUSH: My question, too. I don’t know what we’re talking to ’em about either. What in the world…? The only reason to talk to these people is to talk them out of or to give them the lay of the land. “You will not have a nuclear.” But we’re not doing that. But you’re exactly right. Iran manufactures all those IEDs, the improvised explosive devices, that have ruined, wounded, killed American soldiers. The American Hostage Crisis gave us Nightline. That’s another thing. It doesn’t make sense. The world seems like it’s upside down.
Happy Nowruz! Nowruz barakaba!
Yes, how about that.
But the people of Iran want out from under the oppressive government they have just as much as the oppressed people of any nation want out from underneath it. And yet Obama is on TV basically telling the people of Iran that their leaders are hunky-dory, they’re just fine, and that the problem is hardliners in America. So that’s why I have a problem with it.
