Possible new color revolution being attempted in Iran reeks of US and Saudi Arabian influence

protest in Iran

    

Over the last few days, anti-government protests have broken out across Iran. It’s reported the protests are focused on deteriorating economic conditions and corruption in the Islamic Republic. Demonstrators have gathered in a number of cities, including Tehran, the holy city of Qom, Isfahan, Kermanshah, Rasht, Sari, and Hamedan.

While average Iranians undoubtedly suffer as a result of the policies and actions of a highly centralized religious government, we must ask if the latest round of anti-government activity is part of a foreign effort to destabilize the country by exploiting discontent with the country’s leadership.

In June, we learned that the Trump administration is behind an effort by Saudi Arabia and the UAE to topple the government in Tehran. This shouldn’t come as a surprise. The Trump administration includes a number of hardliners on Iran, most notably Defense Secretary James Mattis, National Security Advisor H. R. McMaster, and Trump’s CIA director, Mike Pompeo.

Prior to his appointment, Pompeo called for military attacks on Iran’s civilian nuclear program. He also said “Congress must act to change Iranian behavior, and, ultimately, the Iranian regime.”

Additionally, he told Iranian Quds Force commander General Qassem Soleimani in a letter that the United States will hold Iran responsible for attacks on US interests in Iraq regardless of the source.

In June, Michael D’Andrea – a CIA officer known as the Dark Prince or Ayatollah Mike (for his conversion to Islam) – was appointed to run the agency’s Iran operations. He supposedly headed up the effort to capture Osama bin Laden, the former CIA groomed leader of al-Qaeda who died in Afghanistan back in December, 2001.

D’Andrea was involved in the use of torture during interrogations of suspected terrorists during the Bush administration. He also played a key role in the assassination of Imad Mugniyah, the international operations chief for Lebanese Shiite militia Hezbollah. The assassination was carried out with assistance from Israel’s Mossad intelligence agency.

Ezra Cohen-Watnick

    

Ezra Cohen-Watnick, Trump’s former Senior Director for Intelligence Programs at the NSC (he was ousted in January, reportedly by McMaster), told the administration he wanted to use covert activities to take down the government in Tehran.

The Saudi effort includes riling up dissident groups in Balochistan that cross over the border into the Iranian province of Sistan and carry out operations. For instance, in October 2009, Jundullah, a Balochi resistance group with alleged links to Al-Qaeda, launched a suicide bomb attack that killed a number of Iranian Revolutionary Guards on a bus in the city of Zahedan. Jundullah has also captured Iranian soldiers and border guards and executed them.

The terror group received training in Pakistan. Former CIA agents say the group is used as a proxy by the United States and its operations are funded by Saudi Arabia. The model, they explain, is similar to the one used to destabilize the government of Nicaragua in the 1980s.

Saudi Arabia and the UAE also support a Kurdish separatist movement inside Iran. In October, it was reported Anwar Eshki, a retired major general in the Saudi armed forces, told the Council on Foreign Relations Iran can be successfully undermined by supporting the Kurdish separatist movement. The event was hosted by CFR senior fellow, former Bush NSC member, Project for a New American Century founder, and convicted criminal Elliott Abrams. The move would undoubtedly create friction with the Turkish government, currently engaged in a sporadic war with Kurdish nationalists.

In July, Iran said Saudi Arabia was behind an Islamic State attack on the Iranian parliament and the tomb of the republic’s revolutionary founder that killed twelve people. “World public opinion, especially in Iran, sees the fact that this terrorist act was perpetrated soon after the meeting of the US president with the heads of one of the reactionary regional states that has always supported… terrorists,” a statement issued by the Fars news agency stated without mentioning Saudi Arabia by name.

Mohammad Mosaddegh.

    

The United States has a long track record in attempting to take down governments in Iran and install preferred clients, most notably the successful 1953 CIA sponsored coup against the democratically elected leader Mohammad Mosaddegh.

In 2009, the Obama administration moved ahead with a plan conceived by the Bush administration based on an earlier scheme blueprinted by Michael Ledeen and the neocon American Enterprise Institute in 2002.

Obama’s plan called for supporting a candidate chosen by pistachio tycoon Ayatollah Rafsanjani, disputing presidential election results, ousting president Ahmadinejad and Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, terrorist bombings, setting up a transition government headed by reformist politician Mir-Hossein Mousavi, restoring the Pahlavi monarchy (installed by the CIA in 1953) and creating a client government.

The Iranian People’s Mojahedin Organization (Mujahedin-e Khalq) was responsible for coordinating the above mentioned bomb attacks and also clashes between pro-Ahmadinejad supporters and their opponents during the election.

“This organization, protected by the Pentagon, is considered a terrorist organization by the State Department and has been considered as such by the European Union,” writes Thierry Meyssan, founder of the Voltaire Network. “Indeed, it is responsible for dreadful operations in the 80s, including a huge bombing which killed Ayatollah Beheshti, four department heads, six department head assistants and one fourth of the parliamentary group of the Islamic Republic party.”

Propaganda was provided by the public relations firm Benador Associates, infamous for a fake story that appeared in Canada’s National Post claiming Iran had passed a law requiring Jewish residents to wear a yellow insignia similar to one used by the Nazis. Speakers for the firm have included a large number of neocons, including Michael Ledeen, Richard Perle, James Woolsey, and Meyrav Wurmser. The propaganda effort was later passed off to Goli Ameri, the United States Assistant Secretary of State for Educational and Cultural Affairs. She is a former colleague of Bush’s acting United Nations ambassador, John Bolton.

“As a new media specialist, she implemented infrastructure and Internet training programs for Rafsanjani’s friends. She also developed radio and television programs in Farsi for… State Department propaganda, in conjunction with the BBC,” writes Meyssan.

US AID NED

    

No regime change color revolution would be complete without the participation of the National Endowment for Democracy, USAID, and the CIA. In addition to a $400 million budget for just such an operation approved by Congress in 2007, these organizations gave an undetermined amount to the Rafsanjani family, the Pahlavi family, and the People’s Mujahedin of Iran.

The plan fell flat for a number of reasons, most notably due to its inability to make Mahmoud Ahmadinejad the focus of popular anger and the refusal of Iranians to blame him for US economic sanctions.

On December 28, Arkansas Republican Senator Tom Cotton issued a statement of support for the latest effort to take down the Iranian government.

“Even after the billions in sanctions relief they secured through the nuclear deal, the ayatollahs still can’t provide for the basic needs of their own people – perhaps because they’ve funneled so much of that money into their campaign of regional aggression in Syria, Lebanon, Iraq, and Yemen,” Cotton said. “The protests in Mashhad show that a regime driven by such a hateful ideology cannot maintain broad popular support forever, and we should support the Iranian people who are willing to risk their lives to speak out against it.”

Cotton is a staunch neocon. He is a radical opponent of Iran and has engaged in numerous attempts to derail negotiations with the Islamic Republic. He urged collective punishment for individuals ignoring sanctions placed on Iran – including “parents, children, aunts, uncles, nephews, nieces, grandparents, great grandparents, grandkids, great grandkids.”

In November, it was rumored Cotton would be Trump’s pick to head up the CIA.

Meanwhile, the establishment media is demanding Trump support the latest protests. “President Trump today can stand up for those who are risking their lives to oppose a regime that has considered itself at war with America since it came to power,” writes Christian Whiton of Fox News, Trump’s favorite network.

Considering the role the establishment media has played in promoting violence abroad with its slanted, often fraudulent, and misleading propaganda – much of it designed by the government – we cannot accurately gauge the situation unfolding in Iran.

However, if we take a look at the behavior of the United States toward Iran following the Islamic Revolution in 1979, we can assume with a fair degree of accuracy the latest protests are at least in part directed by the United States using its time tested color revolution bag of tricks.

‘Because You’re White!’: Teens Record Cop Harassing Them For Their Skin Color

teensteens

Chicago, IL — A Lake Villa police officer is in hot water after a group of teens secretly filmed him going off on a racist tirade. Lake Villa Police Department detective Esteban Gomez is now ‘YouTube Famous’ after telling a teen he is harassing him “because he’s white.”

Dezi Baczek, the teen who recorded the video, explained to the local news station that she was with friends at a local pawn shop, selling an item so her little brother could buy a book he wanted. When they came out of the shop, Gomez accosted them.

“I was yelled at to sit down,” Baczek told NBC 5. “I said, ‘What’s the reason?’ And he said sit down or I could turn around and be arrested, so I sat down at that point.”

After she sat down, Baczek pulled out her phone to record this belligerent peace officer.

In the video, Gomez is seen screaming at one of the teens who asked what he did wrong. He then starts to yell and says, “Wanna be hard with me? Be hard with me, go ahead. Think you’re a tough guy?”

In an attempt to intimidate the teens, Gomez starts to walk away and then turns around and says, “Who’s got the weed on them?”

The group reacts to his comment and Gomez turns around once again as he’s walking away and says “Did someone say fuck off?”

The group responds and says, “no,” just as Gomez points at two of the teens and says “You and you.”

As NBC 5 reports, police said the detective was conducting a theft investigation at the time and was questioning someone in the group. While the remaining members of the group sat on the curb, one teen can be heard in the video recording asking why he’s being detained.

“Because I’m a teen? Because I have baggy pants?” the teen asks, just before the cop lost his demeanor and turned back to the group.

“Because you’re white!” barked Gomez just before walking away again.

“I was speechless,” Baczek said. “Like I wasn’t comprehending what he actually said for a minute.”

After she saw the video, Baczek’s mom call the Lake Villa Police Department to file a complaint against Gomez.

“I was outraged. I was very upset,” Missy Maczek said. “I felt like we were being outcasted because we’re white, which is just unheard of.”

Lake Villa Police Chief Craig Somerville said Detective Esteban Gomez reported the group of teens was accompanying the suspect of a theft investigation at the pawn shop and one of the group members gave the officer a false name. That person was charged with obstructing police, according to NBC 5.

“When the subject questioned Gomez about his arrest, Gomez reacted by answering the teens [sic] inquiry with an inappropriate response,” Somerville said in a statement.

Somerville claimed that Gomez knew about the video and told him before it went viral. However, no statement was released until the video was picked up by local media.

“Det. Gomez admitted his words were poorly chosen and insensitive and he immediately regretted what he had said,” Somerville said. “The Lake Villa Police Department does not condone this type of behavior of its officers.”

Somerville claimed that Gomez was disciplined “for behavior unbecoming an officer.” However, no details of the alleged ‘discipline’ were released publicly and Gomez remains on active duty.

“I apologize to anyone who may have been offended by what is depicted on this video,” Somerville’s statement read. “This occurred on my watch and I assume full responsibility.”

If a non-law enforcement worker acted the way this detective did, while on the job, they would most assuredly be fired immediately. Instead, this man will get a pension and golden parachute at the taxpayer’s expense.

Mented makes nude, vegan, non-toxic lipsticks for women of color

This is important because Black women have a harder time finding safe, green cosmetics.

It can be difficult for women of color to find non-toxic beauty products in the United States. Most of the ‘safe’ cosmetics available on the market today are aimed at white women, and yet Black American women are the biggest buyers of cosmetics, driving 22 percent of the $42-billion-a-year industry in the United States. This means they have a disproportionately high rate of exposure to toxic chemicals.

One new company called Mented (short for ‘pigmented’) wants to change this. Created by two young women, Amanda Johnson and KJ Miller, who met at Harvard Business School, Mented offers a line of nude lipsticks that are non-toxic, paraben-free, cruelty-free, and vegan. They’re also made in the U.S.A.

Mented Cosmetics founders© Mented

What sets Mented apart is the tremendous success it has had with getting funding. Johnson and Miller have been named by Forbes as the 15th and 16th Black women ever to raise $1 million in venture capital to grow their business. While it is certainly an achievement worth celebrating, it’s also indicative of the disturbing disparities of opportunity that exist among genders and ethnicities within the U.S.

Forbes writes:

“As data from investor Kathryn Finney’s Project Diane shows, although black women are the fastest-growing group of entrepreneurs in the U.S., they receive only 0.2% of VC funding. The average startup founded by a black woman raises only $36,000 in venture funding, versus the $1.3 million the average failed startup led by a white man raises before going kaput.”

Mented is getting lots of attention on social media, and customers are spreading the word far afield about how great the products are. Founders Miller and Johnson say they hope to expand their line beyond lipsticks to include eye palettes soon, which is good news for all women seeking cleaner cosmetics.

Photo: Autumn sets the hills ablaze with color

Our stunning photo of the day comes from Boulder Mountain, Utah.

Although it happens four times a year, every year, without hesitation … when a new season asserts itself, it can be a bit surprising. There’s that flutter of excitement for change mixed with disbelief that time goes by so quickly. And it’s all compounded by the stunning beauty that each new season brings; as is so wonderfully illustrated by this photograph of autumn trees, taken by Rollie Rodriguez, shouting out thier last hurrah before diving into winter and starting the whole cycle again.

Satanist "Color Revolution" Terrorizes America

 

September 2, 2017

830767670.0 (1).jpg

(Reminds me of Zombie TV show “Walking Dead” –“Even as establishment-guided mobs intimidate and commit violence, their victims are blamed for violence and hate crimes.”


 It’s hard for good people to conceive but Soros, Obama, Clinton and Co. are Satanists and they brazenly seek to do evil. This article by Larry Chin is the most realistic appraisal I’ve seen of the struggle for America’s soul, one which has cosmic significance.


“What is taking place is not simple protests from supporters of a losing political faction, but a domestic terrorism operation planned and executed by the establishment majority--supported by neo-liberals as well as neoconservative Republicans–in defense of their system against perceived existential threat from anti-establishment movements. Mob violence has always been a weapon of the oligarchy. It was inaccurate and tactically stupid for Trump to call this insurrection “Alt-Left”. It is in fact a mainstream establishment operation, which uses “left”, “progressive” and antifa symbols to pursue its political objectives.”  Larry Chin

These supposedly leaderless domestic front groups, including Antifa, Black Bloc, Black Lives Matter, Occupy, Disrupt J20, By Any Means Necessary (BAMN) and others can all be traced to the Democracy Alliance, elite “civil society” foundations, establishment politicians, Democrats and Republicans, and assets of the Deep State. The connections between the Washington establishment and the myriad anarchist groups are well known. Moreover,  these domestic front organizations -many of which include within their ranks grassroots progressive activists- are invariably funded (directly or indirectly) by corporate establishment foundations.

The campaign against “hate speech” and “hate content” labels any anti-establishment media as “hate”. The attack is so broad-brush that entire networks are branded right-wing or “alt-right”, when in fact, many are not right-wing, and many are non-partisan. Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, Google, among others, are engaged in campaigns of censorship and control, including the policing of content, the demonetization and suspension of sites, control of political content, and outright censorship through deletion.

In addition to being assaulted from outside (Purple Revolution, Russia/hack, Robert Mueller, impeachment threats, etc.), he is being  sabotaged and subverted from inside the White House, and from inside his innermost circle, by the likes of National Security Adviser H.R. McMaster, Dina Habib Powell and the West Wing globalists including Ivanka Trump, Jared Kushner, Gary Cohn, and Steve Mnuchin.

Violent Soros "Color Revolution" Threatens American Society

Soros’ Sphere of Interest: Currency Speculations, Color Revolts, Free Drug Sales









 







George Soros has a long record of manipulating national currencies and meddling in the domestic affairs of the EU and other countries, Italian political commentator Mario Sommossa told Sputnik, adding that Soros’ Open Society Foundations also propagated free drug sales.

The simmering economic crisis in the EU has brought to life numerous non-governmental organizations (NGOs) created by beneficiaries to receive indirect economic and political profits under the smokescreen of their “humanitarian activity.”

Manipulations of Hungarian-born American magnate George Soros and his Open Society Foundations is a shining example of such activity, Italian political commentator Mario Sommossa noted in his interview with Sputnik.

“The most indicative case of combining altruistic humanitarian goals with ‘down-to-earth’ objectives is the work of the organization founded and sponsored by George Soros,” Sommossa told Sputnik Italian.

“He became famous in September 1992, when he had played the main role in instigating the so-called ‘Black Wednesday,’ which prompted the Bank of England to devalue the pound. This operation brought Soros about a billion dollars in net earnings,” the political commentator recalled.

This particular case was described by political pundit Anatoly Vasserman, who explained how Soros’ trick worked.

“It is worth remembering [Soros’] famous stock-market trick when he borrowed a huge sum of money (about one billion pounds) and sank the British pound. [The trick] was not based on the fact that at that time the British economy was unstable. It was, of course, unstable, but the reserves of Britain would be enough to cope with this trouble. However, Soros’s speculative actions had affected the minds of big stock players. And all of them, seeing that a very large sum had been converted from British pounds to Deutsche marks, believed that the pound would not resist [the pressure]. As a result, they all rushed to convert their assets from pounds to other currencies,” Vasserman wrote in his op-ed for RIA Novosti.

However, according to Sommossa, “Black Wednesday” isn’t the only example of Soros’ currency manipulations.

The Italian political commentator told Sputnik that after graduating from the London School of Economics and getting a job in Singer & Friedlander in 1954 Soros started with speculative activities with national currencies.

“In 1992, he forced Italy to withdraw from the European monetary system and secretly sell him a huge amount of lira, which turned out to be a loss of 48 billion dollars for Rome,” Sommossa highlighted.

“He continued to do the same trick, each time creating difficulties for a particular state and gaining significant personal benefits. Since then, many countries have accused him of similar speculations which were on the brink of becoming illegal or even beyond the law,” the commentator noted.

Interestingly enough, in his October 2016 interview with Sputnik Malaysian geopolitical analyst and scholar Mathew Maavak pointed out that Soros could also have had a hand in the Asian financial crisis of 1997, which started in Thailand with the financial collapse of the Thai baht.

“In addition, Soros’ Open Society Foundations is one of the main supporters of free drug sales in the world,” the Italian commentator remarked.

Indeed, the Foundations’ Global Drug Policy Program envisages the support to “national and regional entities in their aim to decriminalize possession of all drugs, and emphasize alternative approaches to regulated access to a variety of currently illicit drugs.”

Sommossa said that seeking to improve his image, Soros began funding well-known non-governmental organizations, such as Amnesty International, Human Right Watch, Center for Constitutional Rights, American Civil Liberties Union and others.

“In addition, [Soros] created his own non-governmental organizations that deal with the issues of migrants and human rights protection,” the Italian commentator said, “It is also well known that politics also lies in the sphere of his interest: Soros has invested hundreds of millions of dollars in the election campaigns of American Democrats.”

Sommossa noted that in the result of the hacker attack on Soros’ Open Foundations many inconvenient truths regarding the fund found their way out. In particular, it turned out that Soros’ numerous entities were involved in funding election campaigns and associations engaged in the protection of human rights in different countries.

“In many cases, the purpose of such financing was political destabilization in the countries where these organizations worked. In other cases the goal was to create specific economic and financial conditions which allow [Soros’] entities to benefit from them,” the commentator said.

“To understand who George Soros is and what some of NGOs he has created are involved in, one can simply refer to his own words. In an interview with CNN… Soros de facto admitted that he could finance the ‘Maidan revolution’ to ‘bring a US-friendly junta to power.’ In the same interview, he admitted that he conducted similar operations in Georgia, Kyrgyzstan, Myanmar, and Iran,” Sommossa emphasized.

Revolutionary Tattoos Change Color Depending On Your Glucose, Sodium And pH Levels

By Amanda Froelich Truth Theory

Most people receive tattoos to look cool or to inscribe a meaningful message onto their bodies. In the future, some will get inked to keep better track of their personal health.

Researchers at the MIT Media Lab, in collaboration with Harvard Medical School, developed a tattoo ink that is infused with biosensors. Once it is in the skin, the ink changes color depending on different information. Some of the factors taken into account include glucose, pH and sodium.

As MyModernMet reports, changes in the pH cause the ink to shift from purple to pink. Imbalances in glucose levels will cause the ink to move between blue and brown. And, the ink becomes increasingly fluorescent (it will glow in the dark!) under UV light when sodium levels are off.

The group, known as DermalAbyss, is interested in using tattoo technology to improve the population’s health. Though it might seem like a small accomplishment, the ink will help individuals with health concerns in a variety of ways. For instance, someone with diabetes will rarely need to prick their finger to monitor sugar levels. And, someone with sodium imbalances can just take a quick peek at their tattoo if they begin to feel off.

This technology is in the beginning stages of development, meaning it will undoubtedly become more advanced as researchers collaborate and invent new methods of using biosensors.
