Surprise! Susan Rice Has Investments in Companies Doing Business With Iran

Geez, this woman’s really raking in the dough. Thursday we discovered she’s got a stake in the Keystone pipeline, a total no-no when it comes to the left, and now we learn she’s has investments in companies dealing with Iran. Of course mentioning any of this is racist, but we’ll take the slings and arrows. Lying through her teeth about Benghazi may be the least of her concerns now.

The portfolio of embattled United Nations Ambassador Susan Rice includes investments of hundreds of thousands of dollars in several energy companies known for doing business with Iran, according to financial disclosure forms.

Rice, a possible nominee to replace Secretary of State Hillary Clinton when she steps down, has come under criticism for promulgating erroneous information about the September 11, 2012, attacks in Benghazi, Libya, that killed four Americans.

Rice has the highest net worth of executive branch members, with a fortune estimated between $24 to $44 million, according to the Center for Responsive Politics. A Free Beacon analysis of Rice’s portfolio shows thousands of dollars invested in at least three separate companies cited by lawmakers on Capitol Hill for doing business in Iran’s oil and gas sector.

The revelation of these investments could pose a problem for Rice if she is tapped by President Barack Obama to replace Clinton. Among the responsibilities of the next secretary of state will be a showdown with Iran over its nuclear enrichment program.

“That Susan Rice invested in companies doing business in Iran shows either the Obama administration’s lack of seriousness regarding Iran or Rice’s own immorality,” said Michael Rubin, a former Pentagon adviser on Iran and Iraq. “Either way, her actions undercut her ability to demand our allies unity on Iran.”

Amazing how much money these so-called public servants rake in, huh? We wonder how much of this she’s disclosed and whether her boss is even aware of it. But be sure the White House will find a creative way to spin this.

    Critique the following ‘spin’ and tell me if I would be hired by the obambi administration.

    “Secretary Rice’s economic interests in several firms still dealing
    with Iran in total disregard to the energy sector embargo is actually a blessing in disguise. These firms set up classes for the average Iranian to attend which then teach them about diversity. Afterall if whites here in America should be force fed black history, shouldn’t the average iranian? As an illustration of the multifaceted curriculum several classes are noted:

    “Why kill a Sunni muslim when a Jew will do? -101″
    “Why kill a Sunni muslim when any ole American will do? -101″
    (These classes are part of the…Why destroying the West can be fun and profitable… series)
    “Why black people are now superior to everyone! – 101″
    “If a black man in a hoodie assaults you, thank him, don’t shoot him. – .303″
    “How his money can become yours! -401″
    “If we can’t force you out, we’ll breed you out! With a shoutout to E. Longshanks.”

    IIUC she inherited a bunch. I don’t have any qualms about her getting her beak wet in the Keystone Pipeline. Prolly the only way we’ll get it approved is if the Chicago Mafia can make $ on it
