Clinton Reaches Out to An Iranian Front Group for Campaign Donations

Update: Hillary made half-a-million dollars off this one event.

When you see who Hillary takes money from, you have to wonder what she will do in return. She is already a known threat to our national security.

Hillary Clinton is being outspent by Bernie Sanders 3 to 1 and keeps going back to the same donors who have for the most part given the maximum donations, but don’t worry, she’s found some new donors.

A pro-Iran lobby group that is working against US interests and is actively trying to kill new antiterrorism laws will be at a fundraising event with her this weekend.

This Sunday, Clinton will attend a fundraiser hosted by Twitter executive Omid Kordestani and his wife Gisel Hiscock along with National Iranian American Council (NIAC)  board member Lily Sarafan and Noosheen Hashemi, who serves on the pro-Iran advocacy group Ploughshares, a major funder of the pro-Iran agenda, as reported by the free beacon.

NIAC advocates against the pro-Israel community and on Iran’s behalf, they pushed against sanctions, have close ties to Barack Obama, pressured the US to abandon sanctions, and they spread propaganda the same way Press TV does. In 2013, they put out the lie that President Rouhani was a moderate and US papers lapped it up.

Ploughshares partners with NIAC and with the White House to pressure the Jewish community and others to back the Iran nuclear deal.

Iranian state-run media have referred to the National Iranian-American Council (NIAC) since at least 2006 as “Iran’s lobby” in the U.S.

It portrays itself in the media as an independent group of Iranian expatriates. But Sam Nunberg, director of the Legal Project at the Middle East Forum project, describes the NIAC as an Iranian “front group.”

And documents released during the discovery phase of a defamation lawsuit NIAC filed against Seid Hassan Daioleslam, editor of the Iranian American Forum and one of the regime’s most public critics, include correspondence with Mohammed Javad Zaif, then Iran’s permanent representative to the United Nations. Zarif later negotiated the nuclear “deal” with Iran.

NIAC spends millions to propagandize the Iran nuclear deal as a positive for US national security.

They are working to block legislation that will require Iranians to enter the US without a visa. The legislation is meant to keep terrorists out of the country. Why do the Iranians want that, do you think?

Back in 2013, Javad Zarif, the Iranian Foreign Minister who negotiated the peace talks with Iran, told  Mehr News that they would use our democracy and our divisions against us:

“The Republic of Iran has the power and capacity to challenge U.S. and Israel in the international arena. To achieve this we must believe in the abilities of ourselves and of our diplomatic team. If we think that there is a unified voice in America, we are mistaken. By utilizing the opposing views in the U.S. we can be the winners in the (diplomatic) scene, and, of course, we can take advantage of the Zionist regime’s weaknesses.”

Also in 2013, Hossein Naghavi, the speaker of the parliament’s Committee described Zarif’s plan to play our game:

“We consider enemies as enemies and believe that we should not let the Zionists (Israel) present themselves as victims. We believe the U.S. is not a super-power and we can defeat the U.S. and Israel in the diplomatic arena. We should believe in the power and capacities of the revolution and the country. The United States and the Zionists want to show that Iran has no room to play. But we have both the power and the capacity. We know the rules of the game and we can play the best game.”

The National Iranian American Council (NIAC) aggressively lobbies on behalf of the Iranian government likely with direct communications to Tehran itself.

This group has ties to Hollywood, industry, Silicon Valley and the White House.

Iran’s representatives in the US will certainly expect favors for their donations.

This is just another right wing rag that I the print compliment to FakeNews. I think it would be nice if there was some aspect of the conservative media that just presented honest and verifiable news instead of frying people’s brains with lies.

Unfortunately, I found this article to be false and misleading. The bill that was passed in senate and congress do not allow European Iranian to visit US without having Visa. The fact is that you can not find any Iranian person in 9/11 attacks or any radical behavior in the world. However, other people from other countries who were involved will not be held responsible through this bill and they can come to US. How smart the legislators are in this country???

This article is total garbage. It’s too bad they can put anything in an article, without any proof, or evidence. Just because this group is not pro-Israel, it doesn’t make them bad people. Iran’s deal was not a bad one, and many other countries agreed with it. The only country against it was Israel, and this article is really written from Israel’s perspective. To me real terrorists are the ones that try to hide the truth, and start a war to gain profit.

What a bad article. The Iran deal is good for the world. We just need to leave them people alone. They aren’t doing a gosh darn thing to us but the right wing just keeps spewing their lies to try to villainize them. The right wing is going to be the death of our country.

you sound ignorant like trump this article is wrong

If people took 10 minutes to research Trump they would abandon him. He cheated on two wives after they worked their butts off to build his empire then tried to screw them over on alimony. His father was arrested for being a violent #$%$ member and was forced to allow blacks to rent his apartments by the DOJ. His father was German heritage but lied during the world wars to keep making money during anti German mentality. The Trumps had direct ties to the mafia. Trump was in a military high school and claimed he was a better soldier than real soldiers yet he avoided the draft more than 5 times during Vietnam for heal spurs which he never had and several school related deferments. And these things are just the tip of the iceberg.

Trump opens his mouth and we hear the frustrated roar of a white male who fears his automatic privilege may be slipping away. Fear of women, anyone he suspects wasn’t born here, people of color (any color), and anyone who doesn’t worship in a mainline Protestant church are included, free of charge.

“Make America great again?” Puh-leeze. It’s a testament to America’s greatness that the businesses he drove into bankruptcy not one, but four times, were able to survive and flourish

Trump’s shtick excites a portion of the electorate — resentful, xenophobic, white — that is more robust than most political elites realized, but the shtick also polarizes. Trump has higher unfavorables than any of his opponents. Taken to a national race, his current act will even more sharply divide an already polarized country.

And here’s the bedrock obstacle to Trump’s success: there are simply not enough struggling, resentful, xenophobic white people in the US to constitute a national majority sufficient to win a presidential election.
