[Order David Horowitz’s new book, America Betrayed, HERE.]

As Robert Spencer stated earlier on Jihad Watch: “No one can run for the presidency of Iran without Khamenei’s approval.”  Iran’s constitutional body, the Guardian Council, has confirmed the victory of so-called “reformist” Masoud Pezeshkian, who will now succeed the late hardline President Ebrahim Raisi, but expect little change.

Elections in Iran are hardly democratic. The Supreme Leader, the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps and the Guardian Council disqualify any contender for the presidency who may be deemed a threat to the regime.

The outcome of the presidential election reveals Iran’s strategic direction. Pezeshkian serves to potentially pacify domestic and international threats via his diplomatic demeanor. The Iranian regime faces international disapproval of its brazen hardline approach as it moves toward developing a nuclear bomb; Western scrutiny over its ongoing war against the state of Israel by means of its proxies; and the ongoing threat of a potential uprising by fierce anti-regime dissidents, even as the Iranian government dismisses such a threat.

The Associated Press describes Pezeshkian as a “reformist politician within Iran’s Shiite theocracy — always pushing for change but never radically challenging the system overseen by Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei.” That’s because Pezeshkian is a pawn of the regime and has its approval.

Iran International — which the regime once demanded be designated a “terrorist” group due its truth-telling — post this on X about Pezeshkian’s win:

Pezeshkian has secured “strong backing from his mentor,” former foreign minister Mohammad Javad Zarif, who is also described as a “moderate.” Zarif is a staunch advocate of a nuclear deal with the West; he negotiated the first nuclear deal. Zarif didn’t hesitate to unleash himself against Israel within days of October 7, saying: “Israel’s fake image of resistance is now ruined." Israel’s barbaric actions are the reason for their continued defeat.He also calls Muslimsthe primary victims of the ‘cult of hatred’—empowered by colonial regimes and exported by their own clients”; and has made the outrageous claim that “Tehran has never called for the destruction of Israel.” So while Zarif and Pezeshkian may appear to be “moderates” or “reformists,” they only differ from their hardline counterparts in approach, not in substance.

Pezeshkian is the man of the hour — favored to do the bidding of the Supreme Leader as the one who has the greatest likelihood of winning the trust of Western globalists. He has the right tone, unlike his defeated hardline rival Saeed Jalili, and is firmly committed to exploiting any opportunity to advance toward the goal that Iran has long been eyeing: a new nuclear deal that would allow the regime to flourish. The soft-spoken cardiac surgeon has already called for “constructive negotiations” toward a revived 2015 nuclear deal, and China is doing the same.

Iran didn’t even try to hide its intentions before, with an open admission that the 2015 Iran deal was based on lies. Then came the announcement by the International Atomic Agency watchdog chief, Rafael Grossi, that Iran was enriching uranium at levels that were ordinarily seen only in countries making bombs.

No one could possibly trust the Iranian regime, except for globalist leaders such as Joe Biden et al, their media lapdogs, and America’s enemies, gleefully awaiting America’s downfall. Many backroom deals under the Obama administration saw tens of billions flow into Iran’s coffers. Now with Joe Biden at the helm, and Iran’s new president, prepare for more deals to benefit the Islamic Republic, under the charade of achieving regional and ultimately world peace.

Biden is delusional and declining; he apparently wants to go down in history as the American president who brokered peace in the region, no matter at what cost. Yet the only negotiations the Islamic Republic will engage in are those that benefit its own long-term supremacist interests.

Pezeshkian’s win represents a new level of threat to the West, as Iran holds out misleading hope to the West’s gullible leaders, offering a smoothly paved route to appeasement and aid to the Iranian regime. No one is concerned that the doomsday vision of Shia Iran is the belief that “the Hidden Imam will appear in the midst of a violent apocalyptic scenario played out on a battleground stained with infidels’ blood.”

Israel must prepare for a long, tough road ahead as it is increasingly framed as a stumbling block to peace, while globalists and Islamic supremacists continue to gaslight the willfully blind elements of what’s remaining of Western society.

Trump courts voters at rally in Racine, Wisconsin

Former President Trump will greet supporters at a rally in Racine, Wisc., Tuesday afternoon ahead of the Republican National Convention in nearby Milwaukee. Trump is currently running a tight race against President Biden, with debates approaching. Wisconsin itself shows Biden ahead by just a little over one percent, according to The Hill/DecisionDesk HQ. Although it’s unlikely the former president will announce a V.P. Picked today, the shortlist of contenders has been slowly solidifying.

Biden Lawfare Victim: Political Persecution of Ordinary Citizens is Why Trump Must Win

In an exclusive interview with Hannah Knudsen at Turning Point USA's Young Women's Leadership Summit 2024, Joeylynn Mesaros detailed the political persecution she and her husband have faced for supposedly causing "emotional distress" to Joe Biden's supporters in the 2020 election, including almost four years of weaponized lawfare.

The Fight for Free Speech: Our Story

Roberts and Joeylynn Mesaros, along with 4 other Texans, are being sued by Biden’s White House officials and Democrats politicians in Federal Court under the Ku Klux Klan Law of 1871 for simply driving next to the Biden Bus during its campaign in 2020. There are ZERO criminal charges. This is a CIVIL lawsuit where plaintiffs claim they have "EMOTIONAL DAMAGE" from the couple's exercise of FREE SPEECH and claim they are seeking FINANCIAL COMPENSATION; however, it is clear that what they are after is much greater.

As Americans witness the increasing weaponization of the DOJ against Conservatives, defending free speech is more important than ever. Robert and Joeylynn Mesaros are personally suffering from political persecution and abuse of the progressive left's attempts to keep Trump off the ballot. They are being used as a tool by Democrats who egregiously claim they are "political extremists," "threats to democracy", "white supremacists", and "MAGA extremists" (in Trump's impeachment trial, the 14th Amendment hearing, and across all mainstream media headlines) all for driving down a public highway.

Backed by progressive, far-left, non-profits (Texas Civil Rights Project and Protect Democracy), the plaintiff's 20+ DC attorneys are bankrupting the Mesaroses via lawfare. Robert and Joeylynn tapped into their son's college fund, set aside dreams of opening their own plumbing company, and cashed out their 401K, using the money to retain their attorney.  They have since run out of money, which makes it blatantly obvious that money isn’t what the left is after. The couple faces over $500,000 in legal defense fees alone as they have the burden of proving their innocence. They are fundraising to cover the remainder of the extremely costly legal defense fees. 

It is a travesty of justice to see an administration weaponize the law against average Americans for exercising basic Constitutional rights, and then to leverage the media to create heinous lies around the story, leaving the family defamed and without a voice to advocate for themselves. The Texas couple understands the scary precedent this could set at the federal level for Free Speech rights for ALL Americans, and they are determined to fight back and ensure this doesn't happen to anyone else. 

Your financial support to win this politically-phenomenal and precedent-setting legal battle is critical as Robert and Joeylynn hold the left accountable for weaponizing the judicial system against average Americans and keeping Free Speech free for everyone.

The Mesaroses have an optimistic attitude amidst the oppression as they believe God has called for their family to boldly stand up in the face of tyranny to maintain our God-given freedoms for generations to come. They expect to ultimately see a victory for Americans' First Amendment rights. Thank you for your prayers, financial contributions, and for joining the fight to defend Free Speech.

Join our Family of Defenders

With your financial help, Robert and Joeylynn can raise the funds needed for an aggressive legal defense to hold these corrupt politicians accountable. They are up against plaintiffs with 20+ attorneys, multiple non-profits funding their lawsuit, and deep donor pockets. Anything you can do would be life-changing for this family: $25, $50, $100, $500.

Robert and Joeylynn promise to be good stewards of every penny donated. They hope to recuperate legal fees and plan to start a fund where they help other Americans defend their God-given Constitutional right to free speech.

As mainstream media spreads malicious lies to defame and mischaracterize this family’s name, Robert and Joeylynn need your help raising awareness of the truth. Conservative media has been reluctant to share your story, so any connections you have for interviews or speaking opportunities would be greatly appreciated.

Robert and Joeylynn thank you for praying for their strength, courage, and determination to persevere in the struggle. Robert and Joeylynn believe prayer is powerful, and they appreciate you standing in agreement with them as they are a voice for the American people's Freedom of Speech.

Meet Tania Fernandes Anderson, First Muslim Elected to Boston’s City Council

The first Muslim to be elected to Boston’s City Council has been making waves, and her colleagues, even on the left, are not pleased. More on this remarkable woman can be found here: “Leftist Boston City Councilwoman’s Rhetoric Is So Vitriolic That It Disturbs Democratic Colleagues: Report,” by Hank Berrien, Algemeiner,

A member of the Boston City Council, who describes herself as “the first formally undocumented African-born immigrant & first Muslim elected in the city of Boston” has reportedly upset her leftist colleagues because of her vehement rhetoric, a source said, according to Fox News.

Hmm. She’s “undocumented.” That’s a euphemism for “illegal.” She’s the first illegal immigrant elected to office in Boston. And proud of it.

A Boston city hall employee told Fox News Digital that the city council meetings featuring Councilwoman Tania Fernandes Anderson are filled with “swearing, yelling and screaming” as well as calls to “create a revolution” to combat “systemic racism.”

I can’t even call you cowards because desperation deserves mercy. "Your votes here sometimes are racist … I am here to represent every black woman and man in the community … What the f*** do I have to do in this f***ing council to get respect as a black woman,” Fernandes Anderson yelled during a meeting in August 2023, the outlet noted.

She has also said, “We should dismantle the White backdrop [sic] and we should restructure it so that it’s welcoming,” [to black people? to illegal immigrants?] according to Fox News.

Don’t come for me, because if you want smoke, you’ll get smoke. "I'm not afraid of any of you,” Fernandes Anderson said in a March 2024 meeting.

“It’s a threat. "I feel like it’s a threat,” the source told Fox News.

“People are intimidated by her. And that intimidation does work,” the source claimed, adding that city council members capitulate because “no one want[s] to disagree with Tania because she’s unpredictable … The last thing someone wants is to be labeled as a racist in this city.”

Within days of the Oct. 7 Hamas massacre of more than 1,200 Israelis, Fernandes Anderson offered a resolution that called the massacre a “massive military operation,” called Hamas a “militant group,” and accused Israel of “war crimes,” the Boston Herald reported. Fernandes Anderson also reportedly called Israelis “political animals.”

In October 2022, Fernandes Anderson was harshly criticized for suggesting that the birthday of Mahsa Amini — the 22-year-old Kurdish-Iranian woman who was accused of not properly covering her hair and was taken into custody by Iran’s morality police, dying three days later — be named Boston’s official Hijab Day….

Oh, I don’t know. No doubt Tania Fernandes Anderson has good qualities. I can’t think of any just now, but give me time — I’m sure I’ll think of something.

Jury Finds Trump Guilty On 34 Counts In So-Called ‘Hush Money’ Trial

Jury Finds Trump Guilty in 34 Counts In So-Called ‘Hush Money’ Trial

OAN’s Sophia Flores and Brooke Mallory
2:34 PM – Thursday, May 30, 2024

The jury in the so-called Trump “hush money” case has found 45th President Donald Trump guilty on all 34 counts of falsifying business records.

The verdict was reached by the jury in just over 11 hours.

Prior to the declaration, reporters, prosecutors, and Trump all anticipated that the jury would be excused for the day at 4:30 p.m.

Shortly after the verdict was read, Trump was seated in the courtroom with his arms crossed and a dejected expression on his face.

Meanwhile, supporters of Trump expressed their thoughts on the verdict on social media platforms.

“Ray Charles could’ve seen that coming,” said one commenter on Meta (Facebook).

Many had expected the guilty verdict in light of the fact that the trial took place in the overwhelmingly liberal state of New York, with a liberal judge whose daughter works for a company that provides digital campaign work like online fundraising, mobile messaging, and web design for Democrat politicians.

In this case, Trump was found guilty of 34 felonies related to manipulating business records pertaining to a $130,000 payment made by his former personal attorney, Michael Cohen, to porn star Stormy Daniels prior to the 2016 election.

The Manhattan Supreme Court jury’s decision was rendered just hours after they were shown excerpts of Merchan’s legal instructions on Wednesday, in addition to readbacks from Cohen and former National Enquirer publisher David Pecker’s testimony.

Trump is the first former president of the United States to face criminal charges.

During the trial, Cohen alleged that Trump gave him the order to pay Daniels before the 2016 election in order to stop her from hurting his chances of winning the presidency.

“This was a disgrace, this was a rigged trial… They wouldn’t give us a venue change… This district and this area… The real verdict is going to be November 5th by the people… We didn’t do a thing wrong, I’m an innocent man. "I'm fighting for the country, I’m fighting for the constitution… We will fight for our constitution,” Trump said after the trial.

Sentencing has been set for July 11th.

The Republican National Convention event will be held from July 15th-18th.

Joe Biden proposes hitting Donald Trump with a $1 billion tax bill

The president has proposed a tax on unrealized capital gains for people worth more than $100 million. Who do we know falls into that category?

Biden has released a clever campaign document disguised as a budget.

That’s something they may come to regret, because it’s a campaign document for the presidential election. And as such, it’s pretty clever. 

Among its features, buried in the fine print, is a big stick that Biden can be expected to use against Donald Trump in the fall.

That stick: a hefty 25% tax on unrealized capital gains for people worth more than $100 million.

Hmmm. Who do we know who is worth more than $100 million and likes to brag about paying no taxes?

During Trump’s first debate with Hillary Clinton in 2016, she brought up past tax disclosures that showed that in certain years, her opponent had effectively paid no federal taxes. Trump didn’t deny it. “That makes me smart,” he retorted. He didn’t offer a rebuttal when she said he might have paid taxes for a decade.

Even former Trump cheerleader Ann Coulter found that too obnoxious to bear.

The U.S. tax code is insane in many ways. (Biden’s budget, incidentally, would pile still more complications and convolutions onto a system that is already a monstrosity.) One of its features is that, despite what Bernie Sanders likes to imply, it does not treat millionaires and billionaires the same way.

People who earn more than $1 million a year are generally taxed very heavily. If you include state and maybe local taxes, the top rate for such earners may already be near 50% and could soon be much higher. Even people who earn a lot less but have at least $1 million in assets usually pay pretty hefty taxes.

It’s the billionaires whose tax bill resembles a love letter from the IRS. Billionaires along with those worth hundreds of millions of dollars, that is.

Those people don’t live on income. They live on assets. Taxes on assets range from low to nonexistent. 

I know, I know — it’s an absolute shock that the donor class has bought themselves a tax code that benefits them at the expense of everyone else. Right?

It’s something to think about every time politicians argue about taxes for “high earners,” trying to equate those people with the super-rich. Most high earners are workers and are taxed heavily. Unless politicians start to go after untaxed assets, they are just playing you.

Which brings us to Biden’s fascinating campaign document wrapped in a federal budget. The key facts don’t even appear in the budget itself, but in a companion document titled “General Explanations of the Administration’s Fiscal Year 2025 Revenue Proposals.” It comes from the U.S. Treasury, not the White House, and is nearly 300 pages long.

Page 83 is a doozy. “The proposal would impose a minimum tax of 25 percent on total income, generally inclusive of unrealized capital gains, for all taxpayers with wealth (that is, the difference obtained by subtracting liabilities from assets) greater than $100 million,” it says. 

Objectively, this shouldn’t be a big deal. Workers have to pay a 24% tax rate once their taxable income for the year exceeds $95,000, or $190,000 for joint filers. Those rates rise as high as 37% once people clear about $600,000 a year. It hardly seems like the height of communism to levy a 25% tax on people worth more than $100 million.

But it will be greeted that way, because it touches the donor class. (When people criticize Congress, I like to remind them that we have the best Congress money can buy.) Cue the inevitable cries of “taxing wealth creators” and so on.

Apparently the rest of us aren’t wealth creators.

Biden’s proposal is an attempt to move the so-called Overton window on the issue of assets and wealth taxes. The Overton window refers to ideas that are considered within the realm of normal debate. Elizabeth Warren brought up wealth taxes during her failed 2020 presidential election campaign, but the proposals went down with the ship. Biden, or his team, wants to bring them back into the discussion. 

We don’t know how much Donald Trump is worth, or how much that changes from year to year. Forbes says that figure is up about $4 billion this year, mainly due to Trump’s stake in Trump Media & Technology Group DJT, 5.16%, currently valued at around $4 billion. Based on the company’s financials, we can assume that’s nearly all profit.

At these levels, his Biden tax would be a cool $1 billion.

Taxes will not become law. Not anytime soon, and maybe never. But it will surely make for a lively punch line this fall.

New PAC Wants Muslim Immigrants to Run for President

SEE: https://www.jihadwatch.org/2024/04/new-pac-wants-muslim-immigrants-to-run-for-president; republished below in full, unedited, for informational, educational, & research purposes:

“This is the last form of acceptable bigotry in American society”

Should Cenk Uygur of the Young Turks run for president or be deported? A sane country would have deported the obnoxious Turkish influencer who instead decided to run for president on a platform of attacking Israel during the Hamas war and insisting that despite the Constitution, he should be allowed to be president.

Arkansas election officials on Monday said online news personality Cenk Uygur, who was born in Turkey, won't appear on the state’s Democratic presidential primary ballot next year.

“My office has received your candidate filing paperwork,” Arkansas Secretary of State John Thurston said in a letter to Uygur. “However, based on your own proclamation, you are not qualified to hold the elected office for which you filed. Therefore, I cannot, in good faith, certify your name to the ballot.”

The Constitution sets simple requirements for the president: A candidate must be at least 35 years old and “a natural born citizen.”

Several other states, including the early primary states of New Hampshire and Nevada, have also rejected his application to appear on their ballots.

Uygur said officials were treating naturalized citizens as “second-class.” He has argued that the 14th Amendment of the Constitution makes him eligible to run for president.

“This is the last form of acceptable bigotry in American society and I’m going to fight it with every fiber of my being,” Uygur said in a statement. “I’m not going to accept that I don’t belong in my own country.”

Uygur’s only presidential angle, apart from being constitutionally ineligible and widely hated, is trying to get on the Left of Cornel West on terrorism and Israel. But since his presidential campaign isn’t going anywhere, what about a PAC?

A newly formed progressive hybrid Political Action Committee (PAC) is looking to support Muslim candidates and naturalized citizens who want to run for federal office.

The group, dubbed “Cavalry PAC,” was filed with the Federal Election Commission (FEC) last Monday.

The group is headed by former Democratic Congressional candidate Kara Eastman and progressive media personality Cenk Uygur. It is set to launch on Tuesday, Eastman told The Hill.

The new PAC will continue the constitutional dogfight.

“We’re also going to continue the litigation that we started, because the idea behind his [Uygur’s] campaign was fighting full equality for naturalized citizens, which we still believe in the 14th Amendment grants,” Eastman said.

“We did not have the resources to be able to do that through the campaign, or the time really – that’s one of the main goals for this,” she continued. “So we want to pay off the legal bills, but then, just as importantly, if not, more importantly, move it forward with the potential of even suing in other states.”

If Obama can do it, why not Uygur? Sure, even Bernie Sanders withdrew his endorsement of Uygur (and think how horrible you have to be for Bernie to risk offending his base by pulling an endorsement from one of his pet leftists), but there’s always tomorrow. And if the country keeps going the way that it is, the impossibilities of today become the nightmares of another day.

Unless America wakes up.

Trump Attorney Debanked by Bank of America & USAA with Dr. John Eastman

Tonight IN FOCUS... Another week, another major win - for the Democrats - as the House GOP betrays Americans yet again. Also why is famed Attorney John Eastman being "unpersoned" - and who's next? Plus FBI Director Christopher Wray recently warned of a cyber attack on U.S. infrastructure by China -- but when is the last time any of these characters told us the truth? And perhaps all hope is not lost on the wicked as a noticeable shift has been emerging within the public sphere -- Kevin Sorbo joins the discussion.
