Tancredo: Left Targets Giuliani for Fighting Terrorism too Energetically

The article originally posted on Breitbart‘ by former US member of Congress Tom Tancredo

In a move that invites parody if not outright ridicule, the left-oriented Politico blog this week went after former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani for fighting Iran-sponsored terrorism too aggressively. Well, duh!

n a week that saw “Fake News” become the number one topic of debate among mainstream journalists, Politico decided to double down on stupidity and serve up a prime example of fake news. The Washington post dutifully echoed the false accusations to give the lie a cloak of respectability not bestowed by Politico.

With Trump As President-Elect, Iran Begins Its Great Lobbying Effort For An Uncertain Future

Independent  Journal Review reported a very informative article  by JOHN LEE about Iranian regime lobbying after US Presidential election. Iran believes that “The golden time of Obama is over”.

The article starts:

Without any great surprise, the Iran lobby has jumped into the post-election fray with both feet to simultaneously try to save the Iran nuclear deal and muddy the waters for the developing Trump administration’s policy towards the Iranian regime moving forward.

The problems facing the Iran lobby are wide and varied. On the one hand, it is faced with the proposed possibility that a Trump administration will rescind the nuclear agreement, modify it to link it to other conditions such as Iran’s support for terrorism, or re-impose sanctions the Obama administration had lifted in the hopes of cultivating “moderation” within the regime.

The original copy posted  on Newsmax.com

Among the many foreign policy challenges that the next President of the United States will face, Iran will be a prominent one.

The regime in Tehran is known for its instigation of terrorism and strife across Lebanon, Iraq and Yemen. It has gained notorious fame for its violent meddling in the internal affairs of other countries, its support for the regime of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad in slaughtering more than 500,000 Syrians, and its track record of human rights violations against its own citizens, especially women and youth.

Political experts and economists alike are discussing how Iran is engulfed in a dire economic crisis paralyzing the country. While actual reports can hardly be obtained about the true status of Iran’s crumbling economy, a brief glance at what is available provides us with an image of the scope of the destruction overwhelming Iran’s economy at the hands of the mullahs sitting on the throne in Tehran. This despite all the promises of change to come following the nuclear pact and “reformists” gaining the upper hand in the sham twin elections in late February.

By Shahriar Kia
Despite the fact that a chorus of so-called Iranian human rights advocates, many dispatched by the regime in Tehran, began to place their weight behind the nuclear deal between P5+1 and Iran, the opposition had beforehand warned of a resulting crackdown. The mullahs in Iran consider the nuclear agreement, and in fact any other pact signed with any party, or parties, of the international community as a green light to step up human rights violations and deadly meddling across the globe. Therefore, recent arrests of journalists and other such measures are of no surprise.
