O'reilly is back now on podcast. MRM I quit watching cable news political shows quite awhile back. I do watch Kennedy
on Fox at 8 pm, about twice a week. She has a good mix of political guest and she's easy on the eyes. ;D

For all the talk of whether the Iran deal was a good one or not, Politico has unvieled some shady business behind the deal. A number of Iranians that were prisoners of the U.S. were released and deemed "civilians" even though they were involved with schemes to steal microelectronics from the U.S. for Iran to use in surface-to-air missles. The release was in good faith to make way for the Iran nuclear deal and to also convince Iran to release five U.S. prisoners/hostages. While Obama and his administration were calling these Iranians ordinary people, the Justice Department didn't see it that way and was furious over the release.

When President Barack Obama announced the “one-time gesture” of releasing Iranian-born prisoners who “were not charged with terrorism or any violent offenses” last year, his administration presented the move as a modest trade-off for the greater good of the Iran nuclear agreement and Tehran’s pledge to free five Americans.

“Iran had a significantly higher number of individuals, of course, at the beginning of this negotiation that they would have liked to have seen released,” one senior Obama administration official told reporters in a background briefing arranged by the White House, adding that “we were able to winnow that down to these seven individuals, six of whom are Iranian-Americans.”

But Obama, the senior official and other administration representatives weren’t telling the whole story on Jan. 17, 2016, in their highly choreographed rollout of the prisoner swap and simultaneous implementation of the six-party nuclear deal, according to a POLITICO investigation.

In his Sunday morning address to the American people, Obama portrayed the seven men he freed as “civilians.” The senior official described them as businessmen convicted of or awaiting trial for mere “sanctions-related offenses, violations of the trade embargo.”

In reality, some of them were accused by Obama’s own Justice Department of posing threats to national security. Three allegedly were part of an illegal procurement network supplying Iran with U.S.-made microelectronics with applications in surface-to-air and cruise missiles like the kind Tehran test-fired recently, prompting a still-escalating exchange of threats with the Trump administration. Another was serving an eight-year sentence for conspiring to supply Iran with satellite technology and hardware. As part of the deal, U.S. officials even dropped their demand for $10 million that a jury said the aerospace engineer illegally received from Tehran.

And in a series of unpublicized court filings, the Justice Department dropped charges and international arrest warrants against 14 other men, all of them fugitives. The administration didn’t disclose their names or what they were accused of doing, noting only in an unattributed, 152-word statement about the swap that the U.S. “also removed any Interpol red notices and dismissed any charges against 14 Iranians for whom it was assessed that extradition requests were unlikely to be successful.”

Three of the fugitives allegedly sought to lease Boeing aircraft for an Iranian airline that authorities say had supported Hezbollah, the U.S.-designated terrorist organization. A fourth, Behrouz Dolatzadeh, was charged with conspiring to buy thousands of U.S.-made assault rifles and illegally import them into Iran.

A fifth, Amin Ravan, was charged with smuggling U.S. military antennas to Hong Kong and Singapore for use in Iran. U.S. authorities also believe he was part of a procurement network providing Iran with high-tech components for an especially deadly type of IED used by Shiite militias to kill hundreds of American troops in Iraq.

The biggest fish, though, was Seyed Abolfazl Shahab Jamili, who had been charged with being part of a conspiracy that from 2005 to 2012 procured thousands of parts with nuclear applications for Iran via China. That included hundreds of U.S.-made sensors for the uranium enrichment centrifuges in Iran whose progress had prompted the nuclear deal talks in the first place.

I'm still waiting to see examples of how Trump is a racist. :o

The left managed to get O'Reilly out of the way, for now. Their next target is Hannity.

That has been floated out there for years. Don't know if that's the case.

All I know is seems like liberals are more interested in protecting the lives of awful criminals than innocent babies still in the mother's womb.

I don't believe in abortion or the death sentence. I believe that innocent people have been executed and besides to
me the rest of my life in prison would be worse than death, but that's just me. I've heard that it cost more money from
the taxpayers to execute a criminal than to house and feed them the rest of their lives, because of the cost of endless
appeals that go on over 20 years. Don't know if that's true or not.

I see that the Woman who accused Hannity has walked it back, now is saying it didn' meet the criteria for harassment. I look
for a bunch of false accusations to start rolling now. The press is in a feeding frenzy with this stuff right now and some innocent
people could get hurt. Hannity should sue that gal's butt for slander and then watch the false accusations stop. No innocent person
should be put through something like this. Left, Right or whatever their politics is.

I agree, but to rid society of the behavior people guilty of the charge should be disqualified from serving in government. The battle cry today is the mores of America need to swing right, people who deny or refuse to come clean such as our AG and President (racism and racist behavior, sexism etc) can hurt the public's resolve to move forward and not fight the change in attitudes. They actually think that because they are in positions of power they can turn around the advancements in Civil Rights.

I find it hypocritical the right claims to be Pro Life yet insists on executing people.

I found it interesting last week as Arkansas was rushing to execute 7 people on death row because of expiring drugs the left did more double talk. They talked about inhumane it is, especially given the chance the drugs may not work since they're nearing expiration date. While they may have a point, I find it hypocritical when when they talk about that, yet continue to promote abortion as though there's nothing inhumane about that.
