Just as it seems that the Mainstream Media couldn’t sink any lower in their quest to irradicate constitutional freedoms in America, while implementing a ‘Global Socialist Collective’ government, the Associated Press was able to rise to the occasion.
As President Trump continues to put America back on track to preserve America’s Constitutional Republic and stop the Global attempted destruction of our nations Representative Democracy, the Associated Press was caught re-writing the history that they themselves had previously documented.
On Christmas day, the Associated Press released a story that calls President Trump a liar and says that he was making up a story about President Obama. They posted it as a so-called “AP FACT CHECK”, and titled it “Trump Revisists Old Fictions About Iran Money”!
However, did President Trump truly make up the story?
What is already known, is the fact that on January 17, 2016, the Obama Administration sent a cargo plane with almost half-a-billion dollars to Iran. It totaled $400 million in foreign currencies and coincided with the exact same day that the Iranian government released four American hostages.

Obama repeatedly told reporters that it was not a ransom, and it later came out that Tehran used the money to fund terrorism.
However, contrary to what President Obama said, the State Dept. confirmed to Politico that the $400 million payment to Iran was conditioned on the prisoner’s release, and one of the former American Hostages, Saeed Abidini told FOX Business Network that the Iranian regime wouldn’t let his plane leave Tehran until the ransom plane arrived.
In addition, on August 18, 2016, the Associated Press themselves got one of former President Obama’s spokesmen to admit ON CAMERA that an additional $1.7 billion was given in exchange for the American hostages, regardless of the fact that the AP released the story on Christmas 2018, that President Trump was allegedly “recycling familiar fictions”, because he was posting that money was paid quid pro quo for hostages by the Obama Administration on Twitter.
ABC News also twisted the Obama Administrations admission that the initial payment was indeed a ransom for hostages when they said…
The Obama administration had claimed the events were separate, but recently acknowledged the cash was used as leverage until the Americans were allowed to leave Iran. The remaining $1.3 billion represented estimated interest on the Iranian cash the U.S. had held since the 1970s. The administration had previously declined to say if the interest was delivered to Iran in physical cash, as with the principal, or via a more regular banking mechanism.
The money given to Iran came from the Treasury Department’s Judgment Fund, which allowed the Obama administration to circumvent Congress and sanctions, which violates countless United States laws, let alone using the cash in exchange for hostages…a policy that the United States has avoided due to the dangerous precedent it sets.
President Trump said…
The nuclear deal gave Iran “$150 billion, giving $1.8 billion in cash — in actual cash carried out in barrels and in boxes from airplanes.”
Politifact responded to the President’s claim and reported the claim as a half-truth! Why??? Because they said that…
The $1.8 billion is reasonably accurate. The official amount is $1.7 billion. However, there’s no evidence that barrels and boxes were involved.
We rate this claim Half True.
However, Mark Tapscott at the Daily Caller News Foundation revealed that the Clinton Foundation and PolitiFact, which are funded through the Poynter Foundation, share a major donor, and therefore similar goals.
Ultimately, whether it be the Associated Press, Politifact, New York Times, Washington Post, CNN, MSNBC, or other Mainstream Media outlets, they all have one thing in common. They seek a coup of the President and an end to our Representative Democracy, in favor of a Global Socialist Administrative State! As a result, facts don’t matter, the truth is hidden, and history is re-written, as they seek to manipulate the American people, in their twisted attempt to irradicate freedom, and implement the rule of Elites, in a new order of the One-World Global Socialist Collective!
