  • U.S. Accuses China's Huawei Of Helping Iran Track Protesters

    02/16/2020 7:45:47 AM PST · by nuconvert · 2 replies
    The U.S. Justice Department has accused Huawei Technologies of helping Iran track protesters in its latest indictment against the Chinese tech giant as Washington steps up pressure on the world's largest telecommunications equipment maker. In a new indictment unsealed on February 13, Huawei was also charged with conspiring to steal trade secrets from six U.S. technology companies and to violate a racketeering law typically used in the fight against organized crime. The indictment supersedes one unsealed last year in federal court in Brooklyn, New York. According to prosecutors, Huawei provided surveillance equipment to Iran that enabled the monitoring of protesters...

    Today is the forty-first anniversary of the February 11, 1979, Iranian anti-monarchy revolution. Iranians took to the streets 41 years ago with a desire for a better life, freedom, and democracy but their revolution was stolen. The Iranian people have been held hostage for 41 years. They are now faced with a government whose economy has collapsed, unemployment and poverty and corruption have been institutionalized and its international isolation is widening every day. The regime that began by giving the key to paradise to children and promising them heavens to encourage them to go over the minefields in the Iran-Iraq...

    Just how serious a threat to the Iranian regime are these street protests? They have not abated since the regime finally admitted lying about the shootdown of Ukraine International Flight 752. Time Magazine reports today that the tenacity of the outrage represents a serious threat to the mullahs, although they still take the protests over the death of Qassem Soleimani at face value: Days earlier, millions of Iranians had gathered in grief and rage after a U.S. airstrike killed Iranian commander Qasem Soleimani on Jan. 3. But the feeling shifted when it seemed Tehran was trying to cover up...
  • Iran: Khomeini's last speech was planned to boost the morale of the regime’s repressive forces

    Widespread publicity and providing extensive logistics to transport the population from various cities across the country by free subway and buses, Khamenei delivered a speech on Friday, January 17, 2020, in Tehran. Khamenei's purpose in this speech was to divert the consequences of the two-month-long protests and events to boost the morale of the regime’s repressive forces. It also demonstrates his concerns about the downfall and collapse of the regime’s various repressive forces. It was the first time in 8 years that Khamenei had performed Friday prayers. He appeared on the scene in a very critical state of the regime....
  • Iranians Attack Their Real Enemy: The Ayatollah Regime

    Since December 2017, deeply aggrieved Iranian citizens have publicly denounced two blatantly linked injustices perpetrated by the corrupt ayatollah regime: the clerical dictatorship's hideous corruption and Iran's acute economic deterioration. Iran's Islamic revolutionary dictatorship is a case study in repeated failure, incompetence, corruption and mass murder. I estimate that since 1990, I've written over two dozen essays examining the failed Iranian regime's murderous Islamic global revolution, the mass domestic Iranian disappointment with the regime's governance and the Iranian public's evident disgust with governmental corruption. The internet documents my claim. If your mainstream media sources didn't notice Iran's domestic discord, henceforth...

    Democrats only do two things. They harm political opposition at any cost to the citizens, and they advance the Democratic Party at any cost to the citizens. The Democratic Party serves the elite of western civilization, not the citizens of the USA. They now support the regime in Iran, the same regime that killed thousands of Iranians. Today a representative of the Iranian regime’s Supreme Leader today called for the UK’s Ambassador to Iran Rob Macaire to be “chopped into pieces”.

    DUBAI, United Arab Emirates (AP) — Iran’s security forces deployed in large numbers across the capital on Sunday, expecting more protests after its Revolutionary Guard admitted to accidentally shooting down a passenger plane at a time of soaring tensions with the United States. Riot police in black uniforms and helmets massed in Vali-e Asr Square, Tehran University and other landmarks as calls circulated for protests later in the day. Revolutionary Guard members patrolled the city on motorbikes and plainclothes security men were also out in force. People looked down as they walked briskly past the police, hoping not to draw...

    Targeting a Ukrainian passenger jet with a missile fired by IRGS Air Force anti-aircraft weapon that killed 176 passengers was a crime against humanity.

    75 years ago, in the darkness of the Nazi barbaric world, a huge wave of arrests broke out, followed by horrific torture and fraudulent trials and death sentences that in many cases was a gradual death of convicts by being hanged with piano strings. Even those who provided refuge and shelter for the escapees were facing death sentences. Hitler, who had fierce anger and an endless thirst for the elimination of the opposition, urged Himmler and Colten Brenner to make every effort to identify anyone who dared to oppose him. He himself determined how to eliminate those who opposed him....

The story below says it all. Barhan Mansournia, 28, is one of the martyrs of the protestor’s...

    The Iranian authorities have acknowledged that the recent wave of uprisings included 29 of Iran’s 31 provinces and has resulted in heavy tolls for the regime. In FOX News reporter’s opinion, the regime has used excessive force to suppress the uprising. This could be translated as the weakening of this regime, “regime is scared”. A sharp and steep gas price hike was the reason many people exhibited their rage and dismay. According to Jim Phillips, Heritage Foundation senior Middle East analyst states: “The regime had to act swiftly and harshly because it has lost most of its credibility amongst its...
