Boeing Trying to Sell Planes to Official of Iran’s Revolutionary Guard Corpsby Tammy on April 12, 2017
So we had the Wells Fargo fake account scandal back in the news this week, then the United passenger debacle, now this. For those of us who support capitalism and corporations, this sort of garbage does not help our arguments. Via Free Beacon. U.S airline manufacturer Boeing is coming under renewed criticism following disclosures that its latest deal with Iran is being inked with a senior regime official and leading member of the country’s Revolutionary Guard Corps, which has sponsored terrorism across the Middle East and is responsible for helping to kill U.S. soldiers. Boeing’s latest deal—which the Washington Free Beacon first reported last week has been put under a critical review by the Trump administration—is being inked with Iran...
Hollywood Disses Trump, Kisses Iran’s Rump; Iran Censors Hollywood in Returnby Maynard on March 1, 2017
Those whacky Iranians are at it again. First, the Hollywood sycophants find an occasion to complain about Trump’s security measures by awarding an Iranian filmmaker, Asghar Farhadi, who then refuses to come to the Great Satan to accept his award because Trump. Then Charlize Theron comes on stage to hand out the award, but Iranian TV paints crude sleeves over the image of her bare arms because the only type of arms Iranians are allowed to view are nuclear...

Jerusalem Post: Peres Stopped An Israeli Strike On Iranby Shifra on September 30, 2016
The following is reported by the former editor-in-chief of the Jerusalem Post. If true, and there is no reason to assume otherwise, this would explain Obama rushing off to Israel to eulogize Shimon Peres, the man who saved Iran from an Israeli strike. And saved his “legacy.” Via Jerusalem Post. In a meeting at the Peres Center for Peace in Jaffa on August 24, 2014, Peres dropped the bombshell in a conversation with me and Jerusalem Post Managing Editor David Brinn. I have thought long and hard about whether to publish it, and reached the conclusion that he wouldn’t have told us if he didn’t want us to. I was editor-in-chief of The Jerusalem Post at the time and had...
State Dept. Spokeshole Admits Nuke Deal May Feed Iran Aggressionby Shifra on September 15, 2016
Kudos to James Rosen for teasing this nugget out of State Dept. spokesperson Mark Toner. But apparently the MSM can’t be bothered with this information. Not when Colin Powell really doesn’t like Donald Trump. Because…priorities. Via NY Post. President Obama has said all along that he expected his nuclear giveaway — er, deal — to move Iran toward behaving like a “member of the community of nations.” But now even his own State Department is conceding the reverse may be true. Fox News’ James Rosen this week won that stunning admission from Foggy Bottom spokesman Mark Toner. Three days before, Rosen noted, Iran had threatened to shoot down two US Navy surveillance planes in international airspace. This was just the...

I guess the “Fashion Police” are going more for the “potato-sack” look. Via Times of Israel. Iran’s state TV says police have shut down more than 800 clothing stores across the country for selling “unconventional and inappropriate” attire — believed to mean Western-style outfits and women’s clothing that doesn’t meet strict Islamic requirements. Monday’s report says the raids took place over a 10-day span after authorities first sent official warnings to merchants in more than 3,600 shops. Iranian police and state TV have in recent weeks campaigned against selling second-hand clothes, which are considered “unhygienic,” as well as clothes with English language print on them…. ****************************************************
New Target in Iran’s Fight Against ‘Corrupt’ Western Values: Nutella Barsby Shifra on August 22, 2016
Next target? S’mores. And don’t say I didn’t warn you! Via Times of Israel. It is Iran’s answer to the Academie Francaise, keeping the Farsi language safe from the corrupting influence of foreign words. Its latest, unlikely target: something called “Nutella Bars.” The state-run Academy of Persian Language and Literature has imposed a number of changes in recent years, particularly aimed at curbing the intrusion of English…. The Academy’s latest target has caused some bafflement: a popular chain of waffle and crepe cafes called Nutella Bars after the Italian hazelnut and cocoa spread in which they smother their snacks. “The authorities said the signs must change. They are very strict about it,” said a staff member at one branch, asking...
Clueless MSNBC Host Baffled By ‘Mystery’ of ‘Coincidental’ Iran $400M Paymentby Shifra on August 5, 2016
Here’s something really baffling: How did these dunces ever get on TV to spout such idiotic comments? Via NewsBusters. On her MSNBC show on Thursday, host Andrea Mitchell bemoaned the Obama administration’s “unforced error” in sending Iran $400 million at the exact same time American hostages were released from Tehran in January. She was puzzled by the decision: “…they never explained that this other money was going – the $400 million. It’s unrelated to the nuclear deal. Why do it on the same day?” Washington Post political correspondent Anne Gearan was equally baffled: “It’s a mystery why, exactly. They didn’t need to do it that day, there was nothing in particular forcing their hand that we know of to do...

No word yet, though, on the “morally damaging” policies of executing gays and putting women in potato sacks. Via Jerusalem Post. As part of its widespread ban on illegal devices, Iran collected and destroyed 100,000 satellite dishes and receivers on Sunday, at a ceremony in Tehran… Reza Naghdi, the head of Iran’s Basij militia, holds that the devices are morally damaging. AFP quoted Naghdi as saying, “The truth is that most satellite channels… deviate the society’s morality and culture… What these televisions really achieve is increased divorce, addiction and insecurity in society.”…. ****************************************************

“Uh, no, no—I’m sorry, you said it’s an AP report…” No, actually, we’re sorry…that we have a bunch of incompetent morons and liars in DC. Via Free Beacon. State Department spokesman Mark Toner appeared surprised Monday to learn of a new report that says key constraints on Iran’s nuclear program will be eased in just over a decade, cutting in half the time Tehran would need to build a nuclear bomb.

Iran State Media: English Language on Clothes Is “Satanic & Obscene”by Shifra on July 18, 2016
Well, looks like the Obama Regime Nuke Deal really changed the hearts and minds of the Iran Regime. Not. HT Weasel Zippers. Via BBC. A report on state-run Channel Two highlighted what it called a fashion to put “obscene”, “Satanist” and “anti-religious” messages on men’s T-shirts and women’s tops. Set to ominous music of the sort usually reserved for exposes of serious wrongdoing, the report features people sporting phrases such as “love”, “not normal” and “no rules” on their outfits. One shot shows a person with their face blurred wearing a top with the words “Friday Night”. Of particular concern seems to be a women’s range with the humorous slogan “Keep calm I’m Queen”. It’s apparently inspired by the popular...
Unhappy One Year Anniversary to Iran Nuke Dealby Shifra on July 18, 2016
Last week marked the one-year anniversary of the Iran Nuclear Deal, and Obama persists in his fantasy, stating that the Iran Deal has succeeded in rolling back Iran’s nuclear program, avoiding further conflict and making us safer.

Two days before the anniversary of the nuclear agreement between Iran and world powers, the Islamic Republic attempted to launch a new type of ballistic missile using North Korean technology, multiple intelligence officials tell Fox News.

State Dept Spokeshole Struggles to Answer Questions About Iran Seeking Nuke Technologyby Shifra on July 10, 2016
Multiple news sources (Fox News, Jerusalem Post, Breitbart) report that according to German intel, Iran is actively seeking nuclear technology. And the State Dept. has no knowledge of this development? Via Free Beacon. State Department spokesman John Kirby had trouble responding to questions from reporters on Friday about reports from German intelligence that Iran has been attempting to obtain illicit nuclear materials inside Germany.

Iran Confiscates Dogs in Crackdown on ‘Vulgar Western Culture’ of Canine Ownershipby Shifra on June 26, 2016
Outrageous. Via Times of Israel. Dog lovers in central Iran are in uproar after authorities began confiscating their pets in an apparent crackdown on the “vulgar Western culture” of canine ownership, Iranian media reported Saturday. One unnamed dog owner in Shahin Shahr in Isfahan province told Iran’s Shahrvand newspaper that officials had shown up suddenly at his house last week. “We were shown a piece of paper indicating they were from the municipal veterinary office. They came in and took away our dogs under the pretext of vaccination,” he said. The owner was told he could recover the dog after its vaccination, but when he went to the vet’s office they had no record of his case. Instead, the newspaper...
Iranian Cleric: ‘Improperly Dressed’ Women Cause Climate Changeby Shifra on June 19, 2016
Do ‘improperly dressed’ women cause climate change? Or, does climate change cause ‘improperly dressed’ women? This is all so confusing. Via Breitbart. A senior Iranian cleric from Isfahan, Iran, said “immorality” among young Iranian women, stemming from dressing “improperly,” is resulting in climate change and causing the rivers and dams in Iran to run dry. During his weekly Friday sermon, Imam Seyyed Youssef Tabatabi-nejad said, “My office has received photos of women next to the dry Zayandeh-rud River pictured as if they are in Europe.” Tabatabi-nejad added, “It is these sorts of acts that cause the river to dry up even further,” according to the Iranian Student News Agency. He added that “improper veiling” also contributed to this unnatural phenomenon....
