Possible voter fraud in the USA

At last the USA is close to the mid-term elections. Most have been looking towards this event with trepidation. Already there have been several reports of possible voter fraud. Once such report has come out of Nevada

There have been complaints in Conneticutt regarding people casting votes for nursing home patients with dementia. There have been other complaints where people who have been early voting have attempted to cast their ballot as all Republican and the machine being used has shown the Democrat ticket.

The extent of voter fraud in the USA could impact upon the eventaul election results. In close races it could mean the difference between an incumbent getting firmly booted, or the challenger winning, as the voters have anticipated.

This situation is not all that much different from the vote fraud that took place in Iran, where the declared result did not match the voter intentions.

Anniversary of the usurpation of the presidency in Iran

A year has passed but the people have not been subdued. In celebration of this anniversary in Iran, the regime chose to hang 5 people - two of them from Kurdistan. This was done as a warning to the people but I am sure that they will overcome such warnings.

The people who live in the Iranian portion of Kurdistan will not remain silent over the death of the teacher. He was taken, and his trial was not fair, it was not conducted in the open. He became yet another victim of a very cruel regime.

May the people of Iran overcome the evil that is the Mullahocracy

The latest in Iran

The latest in Iran regarding protests and other street demonstrations is rather confusing.  This time the government forces were ready for the people, and they did everything they could to prevent a large crowd from gathering. According to the reports that I have seen Kharoubi was bashed by regime thugs, but he did manage to get way (but not until after the car that he was in was attacked by the Basij thugs). 

The regime demonstration was in fact huge but this was only due to the fact that people were bused into Tehran to participate in the 11th February display. The regime was attempting to pour scorn on the green movement with their rather crude Obama displays, as well as the usual burnt effigies and burnt flags.  I think that the picture of the day has to be the one with the Obot and a Pinnochio nose. 

It was not only Kharoubi who was attacked. The regime thugs also attacked the wife of Mousavi (the man who really did win the June election). On top of that Khatami's youngest son, Ali has been arrested. There has also been talk of the grand-daughter of the late Ayatollah Khomenei being arrested. I have seen nothing on Rafsanjani or anything about members of his family who have been prominent in previous demonstrations.

Prior to the demonstrations the regime thugs had been rounding up people loyal to Ayatollah Kharoubi and had threatened them about participating in any demonstrations. They were forced to sign pieces of paper to state that they would not be protecting Kharoubi. 

The big announcement seems to have been the declaration that Iran now has the technology to build nuclear bombs. Today's display was really nothing extraordinary. It would seem that the regime was using more force - of course they had imported people from Gaza, Syria and Lebanon for their dirty tricks. 

So this time around the regime did win the day, but the changing has not stopped. The people continue with the chants "death to Khamenei".  This is an end of regime game, and the sooner Khamenei decides to leave Iran the better.

A sky news report on last week's rally - at least it is factual

I have just come across what I consider some rather ridiculous statements from the Iran Press. The latest happens to be that "the regime has caught people who had penetrated the ranks of the police and basij and it was these people who had fired upon the crowd". On the BS meter that has to score a 10/10 for BS. The report actually claimed that the Basij and police are not allowed to be armed. They even produced some people who claimed that they were encouraged by the BBC Persian TV to go out on the streets with ..... wait for it.... hand grenades..... those poor women having to sign and repeat such lies!!

Gateway Pundit has some more video evidence of Basij shooting at demonstrators from the rooftop. Well I clicked on some of the other Youtube links, and I found one that showed the shooter leaning out of a window with his gun... make no mistake he is Basij.... and the other one that I include here is a Sky News report. It is very factual....

Women in Iran

Iran's women have been the victims of a misogynist regime. They have suffered a lot of indignity at the hands of a regime that treats women as second class citizens. In the courts their testimony is not equal to that of a man. They are punished for lesser crimes by hanging, or even being stoned to death. The women of Iran have their own testimony to the brutality of the Khamenei-Ahmadinejad regime. I just found this video which depicts the sufferings of the women of Iran:

I cannot understand what is being said, but the images tell me everything about what these women have suffered at the hands of the basij.

More reports out of Iran

The news from Tehran is not good. The latest is that Iranian employees of the British Embassy have been arrested and detained. The great lie from Khamenei is that the UK is responsible for the unrest, which of course is b.s. The turmoil is due to the coup d'etat in Iran that was conducted by the military, Ahmadinejad and Khamenei.

I have just seen a video concerning two very brave women who have managed to flee Iran and return to family in the USA. These women have a story to tell. One of them has a broken ankle and arm due to being trampled as a result of the brutality of the basij on the demonstrators. What the one woman has to say is a message that everyone should hear:

Missing student activist turns up in Tehran morgue - authorities refuse to hand over his body to relatives

His name is Kianoosh Assa. He disappeared on Monday 22 June 2009.  His grieving family had been trying to locate him, and they found his badly beaten body in a Tehran morgue. The authorities are refusing to hand over his body because he is tagged as I.D. unknown.  
Personally? I think that it is BS for the authorities to refuse to hand his body over to the grieving family. God only knows what Kianoosh suffered before his death. I would guess that the extent of the beatings shows that he was treated in an extremely brutal manner. 
It is now imperative that the international community starts taking a stand against the Khamenei regime with all of its repressive brutality. There are other students who have been taken by the basij to an unknown location. There are many who have disappeared from the streets. The death toll is more likely now to be at least 500 - we do not know how many have been murdered behind closed doors. The basij have been making sure that there is no proper body count because they take the bodies away on trucks. 
It is up to us to speak out on behalf of the Iranian people, and to pressure the United Nations to take a stronger stand against the human rights abuses in Iran. It is up to us to shame Amnesty International to make a stand against the Khamenei regime.  It is up to us to shame the POTUS into condemning the repressive Iranian regime and to cut off all diplomatic ties with Iran. It is also up to POTUS to agree to a boycott of Iran. There must be a constant external pressure on this illegitimate regime until all of the political prisoners are released. Nothing else is good enough.
