Saeed Abedini says the 37th anniversary of the 1979 Iran hostage crisis also marks the three-year anniversary of when he was moved from Evin to Rajaeeshahr prison by the Iranian regime that tortured him on a daily basis in an attempt to get him to renounce Jesus Christ.
Abedini revealed in a Facebook post on Thursday that he was moved from Evin to Rajaeeshahr where he was placed in a "section for martyrs" just one week after President Obama had a phone conversation with President Rouhani of Iran. He said the regime transferred him to that prison to give the U.S. "a one, two, three punch" and display their power to the media.
"There were 120 murderers there who killed someone in the prison after they had been arrested for killing someone before they came to prison. Guards would not dare come to that section," he said. "The first two nights that I was there, four people were killed in prison fights by swords and knives, right in of front of my eyes. more >>
The American Center for Law and Justice is calling on the Obama administration to provide documentation showing what it's doing to help Christians suffering persecution and genocide in Syria following revelations that less than 1 percent of all admitted refugees are religious minorities seeking asylum.
The conservative law group cited U.S. government statistics which show that among the Syrian refugees being granted asylum in the United States this year, only 56 of the 11,000 are Christians.
In response to the low number of Christians being granted asylum in the U.S., the ACLJ said on Wednesday that it has filed a Joint Status Report that requires the State Department to provide documentation about what it's doing to help Christians before Dec. 28. more >>
Days before the presidential election, FBI director James Comey says the agency is re-opening its investigation into Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton's use of a private email server when she was secretary of state, as it has discovered new messages, which "appear to be pertinent" to the probe.
These emails were found during an inquiry into top Clinton aide Huma Abedin's estranged husband, former Democratic congressman Anthony Weiner, who allegedly sent sexually explicit emails to a 15-year-old girl in North Carolina.

As the election looms and accounts of voting machine irregularities emerge during early voting, tens of thousands have petitioned the White House to remove machines tied to a colleague of Hillary Clinton mega-donor George Soros.
According to several reports this week, 16 states have purchased voting machines from SmartMatic International, headed by Lord Mark Malloch-Brown, who sits on the board under Soros' Open Society Foundation and is himself, like Soros, a globalist that supports many left-wing causes.

President Barack Obama is reportedly prepared to veto the critically important and wide-ranging defense authorization bill for fiscal year 2017 if the final version of the bill includes a long-standing religious exemption for faith-based contractors and religious institutions.
According to Roll Call, senior Obama administration officials said during a White House meeting on Monday that the National Defense Authorization Act, which is passed annually and lays out the budget and expenditures for the Department of Defense, could be vetoed if it lands on the president's desk with the Russell Amendment included.
The amendment, proposed by Rep. Steve Russell, R-Okla., provides faith-based contractors and service providers with a decades-old religious exemption from Title VII of the Civil Rights Act and the Americans with Disabilities Act. The exemption makes it so that the faith-based providers can't be denied federal contracts or grants due to the fact that their employment policies align with their religious convictions. more >>
