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.

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.

Paul Krugman, who really, really, really wants you to know on his Twitter account that he´s a Nobel laureate in economics, has made a name for himself for his bad economic forecasts. So bad, in fact, that President Trump and the Republican Party have awarded him their top spot in their 2017 Fake News Awards, writing: [Twenty seventeen] was a year of unrelenting bias, unfair news coverage, and even downright fake news. Studies have shown that over 90% of the media´s coverage of President Trump is negative. Below are the winners of the 2017 Fake News Awards. 1. The New York Times´ Paul Krugman

The latest black support numbers for President Trump are interesting but not surprising: Two new polls show President Donald Trump´s rising support among black voters, highlighting his political gains from pushing employers to hire Americans instead of lower-wage migrants. The growing support from blacks – despite furious Democratic claims of racism – could become a shocking political validation in November when Trump will face millions of upper-income Democratic voters who are angry at his "Buy American, Hire American" policies. Among black men, Trump´s "2017 average approval rating significantly exceeds his

Trump schools GOP Congress to play hardball

Something good is happening in Congress these days. Instead of rolling over for Democrats and virtuously claiming they´ve "reached across the aisle," as they always have done, Republicans are now playing hardball. They´ve maneuvered to put entitlements and swing state-sensitive tax cuts on the line as bargaining chips to avoid a government shutdown. In doing this, they have just laid out a plan to beat the Democrats at their own game. According to Wednesday´s front-pager in the New York Times: WASHINGTON — With little hope of an immigration agreement this week, Republicans in Congress are looking to head off a

James O´Keefe´s Project Veritas undercover video project has discovered that Big Brother is alive and well, and living on Market Street in San Francisco, in a beautifully restored 1.1-million-square-foot art deco masterpiece formerly known as the Western Furniture Exchange and Merchandise Mart. O´Keefe´s latest video reveals that Twitter – according to its own employees – is paying "hundreds of people" to examine "private" messages sent by Twitter users to one another. The nine-and-a-half-minute video ought to be enough to convince anyone to avoid using Twitter for any messages that might cause embarrassment to the sender.

Dolores O´Riordan, the lead singer of the Cranberries, has died at age 46, and across the musical and political spectra, there is cause for mourning. She was a stunning talent, with one of the most exquisite voices in rockdom – slightly metallic, musical as a bell, grinding, passionate, and fascinatingly Irish in accent. Her songs and videos were as beautiful as she was: lithe, sinewy, manic, melodic. Her lyrics were poetic and surprisingly sophisticated. With a great band and great songs, of course she was destined to become a big rock star in the 1990s, that transition period before just rap

Be prepared for frank sentiments about the terminology that Senator Dick Durbin alleges that President Trump employed in a private conversation. The comments below originally appeared on a forum for people from the Igala Tribe in Nigeria but were loaded onto YouTube yesterday. The Igala people I have known have been very smart, and successful in this country. Warning: The same vulgar term alleged to have been used by President Trump is frequently employed. I wonder what Maxine Waters would say if she watched this?

Venezuela’s solution to a

TODASANA, Venezuela — With its oil industry floundering, Venezuela is searching for a new engine of growth for an economy in free fall. The embattled socialist government thinks it has an answer: a future built not only on drilling and roughnecks but also on beach umbrellas and piña coladas. “Tourism is the oil that never runs out,” Marleny Contreras, the nation’s tourism minister, recently proclaimed. Yet for a country saddled with the world’s highest inflation rate and rampant violence, becoming a tourist paradise may be as improbable as a new Disney theme park in Damascus. Amid severe scarcities of basic goods, some hotels

Cranberries lead singer Dolores O’Riordan has died suddenly in London at the age of 46. The lead singer with the Irish band was in London for a short recording session. In a statement, her publicist said that family members are “devastated to hear the breaking news” and have requested privacy “ at this very difficult time”. Her last posting on the band’s Facebook account was posted on December 20th. It read: “Hi All, Dolores here. Feeling good!

Dear Reader (and the cast of the Gorilla Channel, who get this “news”letter via sign language. Banana.), As the sh**hole continues to hit the fan, I find myself in one of those moods where I think everyone, on the right and left, is arguing about the wrong things. Lest folks think I’m dodging the issues that they all seem desperate to debate, I’ll address a bunch of them before I make my case. Let’s start with the question of Donald Trump’s racism.

If you are like me, your retirement account rose substantially in value during 2017. The end of the stubborn economic lag of the Obama years is a signal event affecting the life every American. It’s not just the stock market that’s up, but GDP and job growth as well. Presumably because it would make the Trump administration look good, the mainstream media have given this development relatively little attention — as illustrated by the New York Times’ non-treatment in its 2017 year in review. (The Denver Post’s Dec. 31 print edition review provides another example.) When the mainstream media have discussed the

The outrage over President Trump´s supposed "s-hole" comment, which was about questioning whether the U.S. should be importing large numbers of nationals from dysfunctional countries, has drawn the hypocrites out of the woodwork. One of the loudest out there harrumphing has been South Carolina´s Sen. Lindsey Graham, who, much to the New York Times´ glee, admonished Trump that "America is an idea, not a race." Yet when Graham said in 2013, "The people coming across the southern border live in hellholes. They don´t like that. They want to come here. Our problem is, we can´t have everybody in the

A study shows that DACA-aged illegals are more likely to commit additional crimes and be jailed than citizens. With all the news about the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program being subject to a deal, this latest bit of news points to a need to start separating good from bad DACA recipients in any amnesty deal for them. According to the Washington Examiner: A new report about crimes committed by illegals finds that younger undocumented immigrants [sic; should be "illegal aliens" –ed.] who were eligible for former President Obama´s DACA amnesty program commit far more crimes than other immigrants or U.S. citizens.

WASHINGTON- President Donald Trump relentlessly congratulates himself for the healthy state of the U.S. economy, with its steady growth, low unemployment, busier factories and confident consumers.But in the year since Trump´s inauguration, most analysts tend to agree on this: The economy remains essentially the same sturdy one he inherited from Barack Obama.Growth has picked up, but it´s not yet clear if it can sustain a faster expansion. Hiring and wage growth actually slowed slightly from Obama´s last year in office. Consumers and businesses are much more optimistic, but their spending has yet to move meaningfully higher.

A crazed, bug-eyed Cory Booker, junior senator from New Jersey, blasted Department of Homeland Security secretary Kristjen Nielsen during a Senate Judiciary Committee hearing yesterday on immigration. Booker became so unhinged in his staged outrage that he repeatedly threatened Nielsen, with clenched fists pointed in her direction. Equal to Booker´s overt violation of Nielsen´s right to be treated without hostility and intimidation was the deranged content of his tirade. Nielsen had stated earlier she did not hear the president say the "s-hole" word at last week´s White House meeting on DACA. Booker went ballistic and accused Nielsen of covering up

Republicans are slamming Democratic Sen. Cory Booker for “mansplaining” to Department of Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen in a sharp and one-sided exchange Wednesday before a Senate committee. The New Jersey lawmaker blasted Nielsen´s "silence and amnesia" after failing to get the response he sought on her recollection of statements President Trump made in a meeting last week. Booker´s hostile tone prompted Republican National Committee Rapid Response Director Michael Ahrens to invoke the millennial term for males talking down to women.

Men can now look forward to a liberated future of wearing dresses. One such fashion designer, Alejandro Gomez Palomo of Spain, is helping to rush in that new era. According to the 25-year-old Palomo, whose public appearance looks as if Dracula spent a weekend at Liberace´s house, gender fluidity is a way of life he hopes that future men can share. In an interview with AFP, Palomo likened his fashion revolution to the ones ushered by Chanel and Yves Saint Laurent in the 20th century.

Wednesday on CNN’s “New Day,” Dr. Sanjay Gupta, the network’s chief medical correspondent, proclaimed that based on President Donald Trump’s coronary calcium scores going back to the previous decade, Trump has heart disease. Gupta’s diagnosis came a day after Trump’s doctor, Navy Rear Adm. Dr. Ronny Jackson, offered his assessment of Trump’s health at a White House press briefing. “When you look at the findings you just put up there, Alisyn — this coronary calcium score is a score a lot of cardiologists use to try and be predictive and be proactive,” Gupta said. “And if the number gets up

Three-quarters of the members of a federally chartered board advising the National Park Service abruptly quit Monday night out of frustration that Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke had refused to meet with them or convene a single meeting last year. The resignation of nine out of 12 National Park System Advisory Board members leaves the federal government without a functioning body to designate national historic or natural landmarks. It also underscores the extent to which federal advisory bodies have become marginalized under the Trump administration. In May 2017, Zinke suspended all outside committees while his staff reviewed their composition and work. In a

CNN´s chief medical correspondent Dr. Sanjay Gupta said Wednesday that he believes tests reveal that President Trump has heart disease. Gupta said dating back to 2009, President Trump started to have "these tests that are actually looking for the presence of calcium in the blood vessels that lead to the heart." "Steadily, up until just this past week when he had it performed again, those numbers have gone up," he said. "When they get to a certain range ... that means he has heart disease." Gupta then talked about his interaction Tuesday with President Trump´s doctor, Navy Rear Adm. Dr.

Pope Francis has conferred the title of “Commander of the Pontifical Equestrian Order of St. Gregory the Great” on Lilianne Ploumen, a Dutch politician and vocal agitator for abortion rights. Last year, Ploumen founded a pro-abortion organization called She Decides, which offers funding and support for international NGOs that provide, facilitate or campaign for abortion. In an email to the Catholic Herald, Ms. Ploumen said that she was “very honoured” by the pontifical medal, which was sent via the Dutch Ministry of Foreign Affairs last month.

Sen.

McCain called the Trump administration’s treatment of journalists “inconsistent at best and hypocritical at worst,” particularly when it comes to condemning attacks on the press abroad.

Microwaves are as damaging to the environment as cars and users must be taught how to cook more efficiently, scientists say. The ovens are responsible for 7.7 million tons of the ­carbon dioxide pumped out from the EU each year — the equivalent of 6.8 million cars. Researchers say they are fueling global warming with consumers overcooking food to blame. Microwaves account for the largest percentage of sales of all types of oven in the EU, with numbers set to reach 135 million by 2020. But scientists at the University of Manchester — the first to assess the environmental impact
