Former Vice-President Joe Biden in an email titled “I’m running for president” writes:
America is an idea. Based on a founding principle that all men are created equal.
It’s an idea that’s stronger than any army, bigger than any ocean, and more powerful than any dictator.
It gives hope to the most desperate people on Earth. It instills in every single person in this country the belief that no matter where they start in life, there’s nothing they can’t achieve if they work at it.
Today, that idea is under attack.
We’ve got a president who assigns a moral equivalence between those spreading hate and those with the courage to stand against it.
A president who, like most charlatans and demagogues throughout history, seeks only to aggrandize himself, to consolidate his own power — by blaming the “other.”
If we give Donald Trump eight years in the White House, he will forever and fundamentally alter the character of this nation.
I cannot stand by and watch that happen.
Our core values, our very standing in the world, our democracy, and everything that makes us who we are is at stake.
That’s why I’m announcing my candidacy for President of the United States.
Does anyone remember when Joe Biden after 9/11 said,
“Seems to me this would be a good time to send, no strings attached, a check for $200 million to Iran”.
Talk about charlatans and demagogues.
But the Iran Lobby’s biggest wins weren’t [Senators] Markey or Shaheen. The real victory had come long before when two of their biggest politicians, Joe Biden and John Kerry, had moved into prime positions in the administration. Not only IAPAC, but key Iran Lobby figures had been major donors to both men.
That list includes Housang Amirahmadi, the founder of the American Iranian Council, who had spoken of a campaign to “conquer Obama’s heart and mind” and had described himself as “the Iranian lobby in the United States.” It includes the Iranian Muslim Association of North America (IMAN) board members who had fundraised for Biden. And it includes the aforementioned Hassan Nemazee.
A member of Iran’s opposition had accused Biden’s campaigns of being “financed by Islamic charities of the Iranian regime based in California and by the Silicon Iran network.” Biden’s affinity for the terrorist regime in Tehran was so extreme that after 9/11 he had suggested, “Seems to me this would be a good time to send, no strings attached, a check for $200 million to Iran”.
Is the latest Democratic candidate for president a proxy of Iran? Is Joe Biden the Iranian Candidate?
The question: Will Biden’s historical support for a terrorist regime that chants “death to America” hurt his candidacy?
Time will tell.
