Would Iranians really bring back the Shah?
American Thinker, by Monica Showalter

Original Article

Posted By:PageTurner, 1/3/2018 9:42:14 AM

Pundits have marveled at what a big surprise it was that ordinary Iranians have revolted against the mullahs. It´s a surprise to them, but no surprise to American Thinker´s readers, whose Iranian contributors have kept us posted for years about what is really going on in Iran. Just look at these pieces by Hamid Bahrami, Reza Shafiee, Hassan Mahmoudi, Amil Imani and Shahriar Kia. Over and over again, these writers warned there was a problem, and now Iranians´ protests against corruption, soaring prices, environmental ruin, revolutionary guard thuggery, poverty, and bank collapses have become the "surprise" story of the day.

You´re darn tootin´ they would.

This is why mainstream fails us so badly, it is what they choose not to write about as much as what they choose to falsify.

I thought the Shah was dead. If they do bring him back, then the Mullahs will sure have egg on their face.

The Shah´s son Reza Pahlavi is alive and lives in the United States. He is 56 and is respected by quite a number of Persian ex-pats.

The Shah made a big mistake. He allowed Khomeini to flee to France and live there. He should have executed him. And several others as well.

Yes, #5. And Jimmy Carter Pulled the rug out from under The Shah, opening the door to Khomeini and radical Islam. That is when the Gulf region over-broiled with anti-Americanism.

Good job, Jimmy. Please stick to hammer and nails tasks.

No, the firing of the Pittsburgh Post-
Gazette cartoonist is not a threat to free speech

Posted By: PageTurner- 6/17/2018 5:00:40     Post Reply
The press has had a field day pumping the news that a publisher´s firing of a political cartoonist in Pittsburgh is a sign of President Trump´s war on freedom of the press. It´s nonsense. Whatever President Trump´s voiced beefs with the mainstream media, rest assured, he had nothing to do with this. And it actually happens all the time, and on both sides of the political spectrum. Here´s the story, as described by the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette itself: Rob Rogers, the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette’s editorial cartoonist, was fired Thursday. The award-winning cartoonist and Pulitzer Prize finalist whose work was often reprinted in

Fresh from his spanking by the Justice department´s Inspector General report, James Comey has a bright new idea to take the sting off: Running for president of the United States in 2020. No, really. This Mediaite story says he had this sudden, irrepressible, uncontrollable, urge to go to ... Iowa, supposedly to look at the cornfields. Hey, don´t we all? Comey tweeted his findings here: (Tweet) On first gander, one has to ask: Is he serious? Could he not be just trolling President Trump?

One of the biggest takeaways from the Department of Justice´s 500-page inspector general report is how deep the contempt for voters is among the Federal Bureau of Investigation´s leadership elite. The text messages are incredible. According to the gleanings of J. Christian Adams over at Pajamas Media: One FBI agent on the Hillary investigation wrote in an FBI text: Trump´s supporters are all poor to middle class, uneducated, lazy POS. "POS" is the agent´s acronym for "Pieces Of S---." There´s also this from Adams: In another FBI communication, Strzok says he visited a rural Virginia Walmart – and the customers had a

Lost in the news about North Korea, the Justice Department´s Inspector General´s report, and a host of other big stories is a quietly big one - the death of the left´s bid to pin the ´Katrina´ tail onto President Trump. It´s failed. Bigly. Today´s news from volcano-battered Hawaii is that President Trump has sent in the calvary for its beleaguered citizens on the Big Island, offering individual aid for the thousands of Hawaiians who have lost their homes, or even lost access to them in the slow, terrifying, burning, lava flows from Mount Kilauea, which has destroyed more than 800 homes.

The power of a Trump endorsement is the topic du jour in the election news, but the other big story we learned from this past week´s primaries is that George Soros was soundly rejected in his bid to rig the district attorneys´ races in California. His creepy little pawns in his project to get leftist soft-on-crime D.A.s elected across the state lost in nearly all instances. Voters like me voted for anything that wasn´t backed by Soros, given the loathsomeness of his agenda. This wasn´t just confined to solidest conservative voters in the state; the rejection was pan-political. Now we have

Sometimes an analogy is the best way to change minds. Commitment to one side in a debate can lock minds into a framework. But take the same principles and apply them to an analogous situation where the locked-in prejudices don’t apply, and the blinders can fall away. That is exactly what Ms. Attkisson has done with a column in The Hill. She takes on the ridiculous reasoning applied to justifying the FBI spying on the Trump campaign and applies it to bank robbery. She begins: Once upon a time, the FBI said some thugs planned to rob a bank in

Democratic Party stalwart Eric Holder, isn´t letting the Democratic Party´s claimed principles about standing up for women´s rights get in his way of his quest for more money. He´s actually conducting a roadshow to offer his legal services to Hollywood executives to help them head off legal or public relations crises in the event their predatory sexual behavior become public. You know, if one of the #MeToo women comes out and accuses the next one of being another Harvey Weinstein -- whether through groping, casting-couch favoritism, or maybe raping - he´s there to help the company.

At the G7 summit in Quebec this weekend, President Trump said that Russia should be readmitted into the international group of leaders and blamed the Obama administration for its response to Russia´s invasion of Ukraine and annexation of Crimea. On Sunday, former Obama national security adviser Susan Rice called his comments a "disgraceful statement." Russia was expelled from the then-G8 in 2014 as punishment for its aggression. "The fact of the matter is Russia had invaded Georgia. It then invaded Ukraine. We rallied the entire EU and many other partners to impose tough sanctions on Russia for its annexation," Rice told CBS´

Former first lady Laura Bush tore into the Trump administration for separating migrant families at the border, calling the “zero tolerance” policy “cruel” and “immoral.” Bush penned an op-ed for the Washington Post, which was published Sunday night as public outcry over the hundreds of children in detention centers intensified. “I live in a border state,” Bush wrote. “I appreciate the need to enforce and protect our international boundaries, but this zero-tolerance policy is cruel. It is immoral. And it breaks my heart.” Bush’s commentary comes as more images and accounts from inside the detention centers have

Christian leaders across the country have taken issue with Attorney General Jeff Session´s usage of the Bible as justification of his policy that is separating thousand of immigrant families at the border. Sessions cited Romans 13 to attempt to justify how separating families was ordained by God because ´orderly and lawful processes are good in themselves and protect the weak and lawful.´ For religious leaders who still weren´t pleased with his usage of scripture, he offered them to ´speak up strongly to urge anyone who would come here to apply lawfully, to wait their turn and not violate the law.´

But Apple CEO Tim Cook recently disclosed one new detail about the work environment: Everyone gets a standing desk. "We have given all of our employees, 100%, standing desks. If you can stand for a while, then sit, and so on and so forth, it´s much better for your lifestyle," Cook said in a recent interview with The Carlyle Group´s David Rubenstein published on Wednesday.

Some veterans in Fort Wayne, Indiana arrived at the VA hospital Tuesday morning and noticed all the military flags had been removed. On one of the flagpoles was a rainbow flag, in honor of LGBT pride month, WPTA in Fort Wayne reported. Some people in the area questioned the VA´s decision.

The president of Harvard´s teaching hospital got to thinking one day and decided there were too many portraits of white male doctors hung in a popular amphitheater. She bemoaned the horrible situation that people walking into the amphitheater didn´t feel like they "belonged." The problem cried out for a solution. So she moved several portraits of prominent white doctors in order to be more diverse and inclusive. Problem solved? Campus Reform: The hospital’s president, Dr. Betsy Nabel, told the Globe that moving the portraits is the right decision: “I have watched the faces of individuals as they have come into Bornstein.

Phil Mickelson´s 48th birthday took a stunning turn at the US Open on Saturday when he stopped a putt from rolling off the 13th green. Clearly at the end of his tether after a shocking run of bogeys in his third round, the much-decorated American embarrassed himself when another putt rolled past the hole. Instead of waiting to see where it finished, he stopped the ball with his putter and knocked it back whence it came. (Photos/Video) It meant an automatic two-shot penalty and he ended up with a 10 for the hole. ´That´s absolutely amazing, that´s Phil basically giving

Roseanne Barr has become untouchable due to the "Valerie Jarrett/Ambien/Planet of the Apes" controversy, irrevocably contaminated by racism. This presents a problem for ABC, which canceled her revived show but wants the show to return in some form because it had high ratings. The apparent solution is to create a new show focused on the daughter character "Darlene," which would exclude Roseanne. Unfortunately, Roseanne Barr owns a chunk of the show, and ABC doesn´t want to be seen letting Barr profit from it, so ABC is in talks to buy the show from Barr so she would not technically profit

The floats at the Boise Pride Festival have changed drastically over nearly three decades. Dallas Chase knows this well. Chase, 71, attended the first festival in Boise, an informal gathering in 1989. She was part of the team that built the first "float." It consisted of a borrowed wagon from her neighbor decorated with painted cardboard. "It was done in secret in my garage," Chase said. In those days, Chase said festivalgoers wore masks to avoid having their identities revealed. Anti-gay protesters would line the streets, dressed in black and holding aggressive, defamatory signs, said Robert Franklin, who was also

What do you do with an FBI agent, sworn to uphold the law, who flagrantly violates the law in a rogue investigation aimed at making a name for himself by bringing down some high-profile targets? Why . . . you promote him, of course. At least that is the way the Justice Department answered that question in the case of David Chaves, an FBI agent who serially and lawlessly leaked grand-jury information, wiretap evidence, and other sensitive investigative intelligence to the media in his quest to make an insider-trading case against some celebrities.
