Supreme Leader Ayatollah Khamenei casts the first vote in Iran’s elections Today is presidential election day in Iran. So here is the pull quote for today’s article: In Going to Tehran, the Leveretts show that there was not a shred of evidence of significant fraud in the 2009 Iranian elections – as those crying fraud implicitly admitted in their failure to even try to provide the evidence that would have been easily available had widespread fraud actually occurred.  I wish the USA’s “black-box computer-fabricated” presidential elections were as honest as the Iranian ones, which use hand-counted paper ballots.-KB Iran: Threat or…

Iran: Threat or Menace? Part 2: Candidates and Issues

In Part One of this series, I covered some important historical background to Iranian politics in general, and the upcoming June 14th presidential elections in particular. Today, I will consider some specific candidates and issues. The two main political groupings in Iranian politics are the principlists and reformists.

The currently favored presidential candidate is Supreme National Security Council President Saeed Jalili, a leading principlist. Saeed Jalili…

Iran: Threat or Menace? Part 1: Background briefing

The first of a three-part series of brief articles considering the run-up to the June 14th Iranian presidential elections Compared to citizens of other developed countries, Americans are not especially well-informed about the world. Like other peoples only more so, Americans view the world through a glass darkly – a glass darkened by ignorance and prejudice. Much of the fault lies not with the people, but with their corporate-monopoly media. Consider the case of Iran, a geo-strategical lynchpin nation more than three times the size of Iraq. Since the Islamic Revolution of 1979, Iran has gotten uniformly bad press in…

Why Iran will win: The achilles heel of machievellian evil is that it cannot imagine goodness

Michael Ledeen is indeed a “terrorism expert.” He has reportedly bragged about murdering people in Italy in false-flag “Gladio” terror operations.   Richard Perle may be the self-styled Prince of Darkness.

Zionist flack Katzman re-demolished on Press TV!

I love Kenneth Katzman, the hack propagandist for Israel. Making his head explode live on Press TV was one of the most satisfying accomplishments I’ve ever experienced. Katzman is afraid to debate me again. He says he’ll never come on Press TV again if they keep featuring guests like me. He even demands that I be permanently removed from all media outlets, everywhere in the world. But that doesn’t mean that my new friend Rodney Shakespeare, with whom I dined at Tehran’s best Mexican restaurant two nights ago, can’t step in and kick his ass. Go, Rodney!
