John Kerry, Israel and his family ties to Iran UPDATE

How does Kerry keep getting recycled back into into the government? John Kerry, the U.S. special envoy for climate change, is facing calls for his resignation from Republican lawmakers and pundits for reportedly discussing Israeli military operations with Iran’s foreign minister when he served as then-President Obama’s secretary of State. Should we be surprised? UPDATE:

 

Iran orders probe into leaked audio of Zarif bemoaning military’s influence

Rouhani-ordered investigation seeks to identify who released ‘stolen’ three-hour recording that has sparked anger among country’s conservatives

 

“In the Islamic Republic the military field rules,” Zarif said in the audiotape, quoted by The New York Times. “I have sacrificed diplomacy for the military field rather than the field servicing diplomacy.”

Back to the post:

First, let’t take a look at his Iranian connection in case we wonder why his concern about Iran.

Kerry’s daughter Vanessa is married to an Iranian national and physician. Who was best man at the ceremony? The son of Mohammad Javad Zarif, Iran’s Minister of Foreign Affairs.

Zarif was also and Kerry’s chief counterpart in the nuclear deal negotiations.

Kerry also said he was “strongly committed to resolving” the differences between the United States and the Islamic Republic of Iran, “to the mutual benefit of both of our people.”

Blackmail?

“But what if the regime simply decides to round up Nahed’s family members and torture them? Or sends its goons to visit them at home? Or exerts some form of more subtle pressure on them that gets no publicity, and then makes it known they want the United States to release Iranians jailed in the United States on terrorism charges or for attempting to procure weapons technology or military spare parts”?

Our patriot Kerry:

Kerry exposes Iranian family tie — and subjects family to blackmail

In a greeting to the Iranian people on the occasion of the traditional New Year (Nowruz) holiday last week, Secretary of State John Kerry exposed a secret that journalists and academics have been agonizing over for the past six weeks: the fact that his daughter has married an Iranian-American who has extensive family ties to Iran.

Since its inception, the FBI has vetted U.S. government officials involved in national security issues, and it generally won’t grant clearances to individuals who are married to nationals of an enemy nation or have family members living in that country, for fear of divided loyalties or, more simply, blackmail.

Kerry has repeatedly appeared with groups such as the American Iranian Council (AIC), and has taken money from Iranian-Americans for his political campaigns, including at least one illegal donation from an Iranian woman who did not have a green card.

Among Sen. John Kerry’s top fund-raisers are three Iranian-Americans who have been pushing for dramatic changes in U.S. policy toward the Islamic Republic of Iran.

So he didn’t need to have an Iranian-American family member to believe that the United States should forge direct relations with the Islamic Republic or ease U.S. pressure on the regime.

2013:

United States Secretary of State John Kerry has controversially claimed that American Senators should ‘stop listening to the Israelis’ in respect to Iran’s nuclear program. Kerry made the incendiary remark during a behind-close-doors briefing he gave to the Senate Banking Committee, where he made an impassioned plea to the lawmakers to put a halt to proposed new sanctions on the Islamic Republic.

But of course nothing will happen. Just a little snafu for Kerry.

Republican blowback is running the gamut from calling for Kerry to leave his position as the top official addressing climate change to calling for an investigation and his prosecution. Biden administration officials are dismissing the allegations, saying the information Kerry allegedly shared was widely known at the time.

Sen. Dan Sullivan (R-Alaska) called for Kerry’s resignation in a floor speech, one of several senators to do so Monday.

Iranian Born Valerie Jarrett Rises Again

Valerie Jarrett-Named Iranian of the Month

Obama’s closest aide is Shirazi

 Jarrett is a member of African-American and Chicago royalty. But her story and her life begin in the Middle East, not the Midwest. She was born in 1956 in Shiraz, Iran, Hospital, where Jarrett was born, and spent her early years. ”Every memory from Iran is a very happy memory,” Jarrett told me in an e-mail.  . Jarrett speaks Persian-Farsi and French.

“I had the honor of being in Shiraz and was student and later friend of Professor and Mrs Bowman (Valerie parent).
This Family is highly exceptional and Dr Bowman loves Iran and Shiraz and had been in touch with Shiraz ever since Valerie was in Shiraz and she is a brilliant and superb individual who belong to entire world”

Pompeo: ‘Something not quite right about Feinstein’

 

Maria Bartiromo interviewed Secretary of State Pompeo  yesterday on Sunday Morning Futures. The attention has been on Feinstein’s remarks that China is a swell guy.

 

 

Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D., Calif.) said that China is “growing into a respectable nation” and cautioned against holding the country accountable for its role in the worldwide coronavirus outbreak.

But the headline that should be is Pompeo alluding to China’s interference with our elected congressmen. It even gets better.

There’s something not quite right.” 

He outs her many meetings with Iran’s foreign minister:

“You’ll recall, she meets with some frequency with Foreign Minister Zarif there too.”

Earlier post:

“Don Trump Jr. has a meeting with a couple of Russians, meeting turns out to nothing, and it’s the crime of the century. Except Mueller says it’s not, but the media says it is. You have Dianne Frankenfeinstein on her damn cell phone with the foreign minister of Iran! Anybody want to know what they discussed? ‘No, no, that’s Dianne, we like her,’” Levin said.

Maria Bartiromo asked Pompeo about Senator Feinstein’s driver, a Chinese spy, who worked for the California senator for 20 years. This after the past week of Senator Feinstein praising the Chinese Communist regime.

 

 

Pompeo dropped the big  bomb on Feinstein and the interference  of China on U.S. elections- add the Iran foreign minister:

Mike Pompeo: We did. You’ll recall, she meets with some frequency with Foreign Minister Zarif there too.

 

I moved the clip to about 4:50 and that portion ends at about 8:40, however the full interview is well worth taking the time.

 

 

Mike Pompeo: Maria I saw the statement by Senator Feinstein, I found it perplexing. I saw statements of senior American CEOs from the big tech companies this week saying they hadn’t heard or seen about intellectual property theft from the United States. That’s crazy talk. Here’s the good news. The good news is we’re getting nearly every member of Congress aligned along the administration’s policies with China. When we voted for Hong Kong freedom there were over 400 votes in the House and nearly every vote in the Senate… I think the tide is turning. Not only in the United States but all across the world the threat of the Chinese Communist Party is becoming clearer and clearer… I talked at the Nixon Library about this not being a battle about China but about authoritarianism and freedom. That’s the fight America needs to be engaged on…

Maria Bartiromo: I was struck by Dianne Feinstein because didn’t she have a driver for 20 years that we ended up finding out was a Chinese spy?

Mike Pompeo: We did. You’ll recall, she meets with some frequency with Foreign Minister Zarif there too. There’s something not quite right. And this is not consistent with America’s national security in either case. These are adversaries that intend harm for her state of California and I wish she would not engage in this kind of rhetoric and these kind of meetings that undermine these kind of efforts.

Flashback: Iran paid $1000 for each U.S. soldiers death

 

I am confused. Washington D.C. is rattling again with Russia Russia Russia over a “leak” about Russia paying a bounty on U.S. soldiers. What am I missing? Isn’t war suppose to be about killing one another? Didn’t we run this scenario once before back in 2010. Let’s see who was President then? Hmmm. I don’t recall everyone having their knickers in a knot and how Obama must have Iran pay. Instead Iran got a boatload of cash.

msnbc.com staff and news service reports
9/5/2010:

Iran is paying Taliban fighters $1,000 for each U.S. soldier they kill in Afghanistan, according to a report in a British newspaper.

The Sunday Times described how a man it said was a “Taliban treasurer” had gone to collect $18,000 from an Iranian firm in Kabul, a reward it said was for an attack in July which killed several Afghan government troops and destroyed an American armored vehicle.

The treasurer left with the cash hidden in a sack of flour, the newspaper said, and then gave it to Taliban fighters in the province of Wardak. In the past six months, the treasurer claimed to have collected more than $77,000 from the company.

The Sunday Times said its investigation had found that at least five Kabul-based Iranian companies were secretly passing funds to the Taliban.

The newspaper’s correspondent, Miles Amoore, said he met and interviewed the treasurer, who he said had been an illiterate farmer who was taught to read and write, plus basic accountancy, by the Taliban last winter.

‘For jihad’
“Iran will never stop funding us because Americans are dangerous for them as well. I think the hatred is the same from both us and Iran. The money we get is not dirty. It is for jihad,” the treasurer told Amoore.

In addition to the $1,000 bounty on U.S. troops, the unnamed man said Iran paid $6,000 for the destruction of a U.S. military vehicle. From.  NBC News

Notes from September 2010 clip:

A report in the UK’s Sunday Times alleges that an unnamed man called the “Taliban Treasurer” has received over $70,000 dollars in payments from the Iranian government as a bounty for the attacks carried out against American forces in Afghanistan.

Has everyone forgotten when the U.S. was paying the Mujahideen to kill Russians? Or when Obama, Hillary and Panetta were paying al-Qaeda to kill Libyan’s and Syrian army?

Everything just fine in the swamp.

Obama Granted Amnesty to Soleimani in Iran Deal

 

From the Iran Deal text we learn that Kerry offered more to Iran than a nuclear deal. From the Iran Deal Text we learn that amnesty was granted to Soleimani by Obama,

A report in July 2015 in the British news service The Telegraph revealed that on page 86 of the annex of the newly agreed upon Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) known commonly as the Iran nuclear deal or Iran deal, was an interesting clause granting amnesty to Gen. Qassem Soleimani, the Iranian general killed last week in a drone strikeThe Telegraph’s  Defence Editor, Con Coughlin, was astounded at the revelation, describing Soelimani (spelled Gasem Soleymani in the JCPOA) as “one of the world’s leading terrorist masterminds.”

Soleimani

“For a decade a more he has been the driving force behind an array of Iranian-sponsored terrorist groups, from Hizbollah to Hamas, which have orchestrated a reign of terror throughout the Middle East,” Coughlin wrote. “Thanks to Mr. Obama’s scandalous capitulation to Tehran, Mr. Suleimani has overnight gone from being one of the world’s most wanted terrorists to the White House’s newest best friend.”

This amnesty clause in the JCPOA removed Soleimani from the Treasury Department’s designated terrorist list he had been on since 2007. Before the JCPOA, Soleimani was targeted with sanctions in the United Nations Security Council, by the U.S., the European Union, and the Swiss government.

As if this was not enough, in 2015, the Obama administration warned the Iranian leadership of an Israeli plan, revealing that Israel was closely tracking the Iranian general, thwarting the plans and creating a rift between the U.S. and Israel.

A number of other senior members of the Iranian Revolutionary Guards (IRGC) were included in this blanket amnesty as well. The appendix in the JCPOA covered entities, individuals as well as corporations, that would be affected by the removal of economic sanctions as per the agreement.

This acceptance of terrorists was not unusual under the Obama administration. One of the leaders of the riots that threatened the embassy in Baghdad two weeks ago was Hadi al-Amiri, head of the Badr Organization,  one of the largest pro-Iran militias in Iraq. Hadi Farhan al-Amiri, the Iraqi Minister of Transportation at the time, was a guest of former President Barack Obama at the White House in 2011 as part of a delegation from the Iraqi government

Flashback Hillary: ‘If I were President I would obliterate Iran’

 

A trip down memory lane with our savants during the halcyon days of the Obama tenure. First a couple of tweets from Hillary to set the stage for some laughs and giggles. As painful as it is to review the statements of these characters that were running our country, it explains why Trump had and has such a mess on his hands.

You betcha Hillary – cheat? Oh not you!

Ho, Ho, Ho…. a real knee slapper… Congressional approval? What Congressional approval? Just asking.

Now Libya is a failed State where terrorists sell human beings in open air slave markets, thanks to Hillary and the Obama/Biden intervention.

 

 

Bonus: Iran is no threat to us…. it is a tiny country. Just give them 150 Billion dollars and all will be well.

 

Our savant Biden:

“I am very optimistic about — about Iraq. I mean, this could be one of the great achievements of this administration. You’re going to see 90,000 American troops come marching home by the end of the summer. You’re going to see a stable government in Iraq that is actually moving toward a representative government,” said Biden.

“I spent — I’ve been there 17 times now. I go about every two months — three months. I know every one of the major players in all of the segments of that society. It’s impressed me. I’ve been impressed how they have been deciding to use the political process rather than guns to settle their differences.”

Iran – Iraq: The Cost of Meddling and the Price of Appeasement

 

The Cost of Meddling and the Price of Appeasement
by Mustang 
 
Some background
 
Iran is the seventeenth largest country in the world, encompassing just under one-million square miles of land—larger than the combined nations of Belgium, Germany, the Netherlands, France, Spain, and Portugal.  It is also the sixteenth largest country in terms of human population.  The size of the country, its terrain, weather patterns, shortage of water, and the distribution of human populations make Iran unsuitable for sustained land warfare. 
 

Reza Shah Pahlavi

Reza Shah Pahlavi (1878-1944) (also known as Reza Shah) was the Shah of Iran from December 1925 to September 1941, when a joint British-Soviet invasion forced his resignation.  Before leading Iran as its monarch, Pahlavi served as Iran’s prime minister.  He was appointed legal monarch by the Iranian Constituent Assembly, which deposed the previous shah, Ahmad Shah Qajar [1].  Reza Shah sought to restrict opposition to his regime by restricting freedom of the press, worker’s rights, and certain political freedoms.  Political parties were banned—including the party most loyal to Reza Shah—along with trade unions. 

He was also known for punishing through torture criminal elements, spies, and those accused of plotting regicide.  There are some today who accuse Reza Shah of suppressing religious expression, particularly those practicing the moslem faith and of suppressing the communist elements in Iran during his reign.  The confiscation of clerical land holdings did not endear him to a group of increasingly radical Iranian clerics—and the more these leaders protested Reza Shah’s policies, the more he cracked down on Islamic extremists.
 
In 1941, Nazi Germany began Operation Barbarossa—the invasion of the Soviet Union.  It was a direct violation of the Molotov-Ribbentrop Pact.  That summer, Soviet and British diplomats sent a number of notes to the government of Iran, stating that they regarded the presence of Germans in Iran, such as those administering state rail systems, as a threat to the Soviet Union and United Kingdom.  The implication was that if Iran did not expel these German civil servants, a state of war might exist between Iran and the allied powers. 

It was the intent of the British to ship arms to the Soviets through Iran.  Iran, however, did not believe the British would declare war on Iran, particularly since Iran had declared its neutrality in the growing conflict.  However, on 25 August 1941, British and Australian forces attacked the Persian Gulf and Soviet land forces invaded Iran, which included the aerial bombing of Tehran.  It was not long before Iranian defense forces collapsed.  On 16 September, Reza Shah resigned and was replaced by his son, Mohammed Reza [2].
 
In 1953, the United States helped to orchestrate a coup d’ẻtat, which overthrew a popularly elected prime minister and strengthened the Iranian monarchy.  Despite his demonstrations of enlightenment in 1941, Shah Reza Pahlavi by 1971 had become increasingly authoritarian (and inept).  His domestic policies did as much to foment revolution as did the radical Islamist Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini (who was working to achieve revolution in the background from Paris). 

One might argue that through their support of the Islamic Revolution, the Iranian people have suffered mightily of their own choosing.  It can also be argued that the policies toward Iran of the United Kingdom and United States have not served the interests of either country, or of Iran and its people [3].

Soleimani

The United States eliminated through extreme prejudice Iranian Major General Qassem Soleimani, a thoroughly nasty fellow who commanded the Islamic Revolutionary Guard and the so-called Quds Force, an organization responsible for extraterritorial military and clandestine operations, which involved providing military assistance to terrorist organizations such as Hezbollah. 

Soleimani was sanctioned by United Nations Security Council Resolution 1747 due to his alleged involvement in providing material support to the Syrian government in its suppression of civil protests.  Owing to the fact that Soleimani was responsible for the deaths of more Americans than any other terrorist since Osama bin Laden, the United States listed him as a known terrorist.  At 0100 on 3 January 2020, a US drone strike introduced Soleimani to the afterworld.  This strike came as a consequence of Soleimani’s orchestration of the attack on the United States Embassy in Baghdad [4].
 
Shortly after the drone strike, President Donal J. Trump warned leaders in Iran against following through on their threats to avenge General Soleimani.  By now, all of Donald Trump’s “tweets” have become famous, but his communique via Twitter in the aftermath of Soleimani’s demise is particularly noteworthy. 
Mr. Trump wrote, “Iran is talking very boldly about targeting certain USA assets as revenge for our ridding the world of their terrorist leader who had just killed an American, and badly wounded many others, not to mention all of the people he had killed over his lifetime, including recently hundreds of Iranian protesters. 
“Let this serves as a warning that if Iran strikes any Americans or American assets, we have targeted 52 Iranian sites (representing the 52 American hostages taken by Iran many years ago), some at a very high level and important to Iran and the Iranian culture, and those targets, and Iran itself, will be hit very fast and very hard.  The United States of America wants no more threats.”
 
President Trump made two important decisions: to kill Soleimani —and to do it publicly.  In making the act public, Mr. Trump left no doubt as to whom was responsible for Soleimani’s long-overdue death.  Trump in fact emphasized the direction of his administration when he also announced that there would be no more Benghazi’s.  Bravo, Mr. Trump!  But of course, the decision places Iran in the unenviable position of having to decide what to do about the drone strike. 
Currently, there is a lame duck government in Iraq, which Iran must see as an opportunity.  There is also an issue among some Afghanis who wonder why, if Mr. Trump can reach out and touch Soleimani, why can’t the United States reach out with equal precision and rid the world of a number of Pakistani thugs who fund or orchestrate Taliban anti-government campaigns.  It is an interesting question.
 
What the US government should keep in mind, in addition to the fact that Iran is unsuitable for a sustained land engagement, is that only 55% of the Iranian people are ethnic Persian; a large percentage of the Iranian population are minority Sunni moslems.  This is a fact that should lead US political leaders to avoid any policy or action that would serve to unite these disparate groups behind the Ayatollah or any of his henchmen [5]. 
With substantial American military forces to the east and west of Iran, the Iranian regime must have concerns that the United States is well-placed to foment rebellion inside Iran—and this may be the reason Iran is desperate to develop an offensive nuclear capability.  It may also explain their support of ideological extremism, which equates to cheap warfare for Iran, while remaining costly for everyone else.

The problem we have with Iran today is more than just a little of our own fault.  We need to stop meddling in Middle Eastern affairs; it is a nasty habit we picked up from the British.  We also need to stop appeasing thugs and criminals.  There is no good reason for any American president to “understand the plight of Islamic freedom fighters.” 

What these Islamists do in their own country is none of our concern; it should only be a concern to us when their unseemly behaviors affect our (actual) national security, the safety of our people, and the protection of our property.  I support the concept of using our air forces to punish any Iranian revenge attack.  I do not care about any collateral damage that might result from it.

The Iranians opted for their plight in 1978-79; they continue to put up with radical regimes today.  The sooner Iran understands that western civilization will defend itself, that we (collectively) will not tolerate Islamic extremism (in any form), the quicker they learn that there are dangerous consequence to global extremism, the better for everyone.

 

Donald J. Trump is the only president we’ve had in the past 32 years with the courage to set Iran straight.  Not only should we (true) Americans be thankful for that, we should also demand it from all future presidents/presidential candidates.

  2. Mohammed Reza reigned until 1979 when he abdicated and went into exile.  The Iranian revolution was unusual in the sense that it occurred in a relatively prosperous nation, not the result of war, financial crisis, peasant rebellion, or a military coup d’ẻtat.  Rather than evolving as a single event, the revolution involved a series of incidents beginning in 1977 which culminated in wide-scale civil disobedience that included both secular and religious elements and university students.  Strikes and demonstrations paralyzed Iran between 1978-79.  On 16 January 1979, the Shah went into exile leaving the government in the hands of a regency council headed by an opposition prime minister  The council in turn invited Ayatollah Khomeini to return to Iran, thinking that he would serve the interests of secular government by maintaining the status of a religious figurehead.  That didn’t happen, of course.

What did happen at the U.S. Embassy in Iraq?

 

While we are looking away from the political happenings around the world, there was “Some thing” to coin a phrase from our favorite Muslim, that happened in Iraq. That something apparently can be spun in any number of ways. The New York Times takes the case to a new level as a case in point and Powerline points it out in this tweet.

The news accounts of the siege of the U.S. Embassy in Baghdad conventionally refer to the Iranian or pro-Iranian force that attacked the embassy as “protesters.” This conferred a sort of legitimacy on the attack, and was wrong. But the New York Times went farther over the edge, referring to the militiamen as “mourners.”

Hey, who doesn’t bring rockets to a funeral? You have to wonder: do the idiots at the New York Times seriously believe that they are fooling anyone?

John Kerry’s Iran family connection Foreign Minister Zarif targeted by Trump

 

Mnuchin said Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif would be targeted with US sanctions along with others. Now this is so sweet. Kerry’s BFF Zariff gets nailed.

Just who is Javad Zarif and his family ties with John Kerry?

John Kerry and daughter Vanessa Kerry Nahed

Kerry has been doing all he can to make sure his own idiotic Iranian deal stays in place by visiting the major principles. Meeting with Iranian Prime Minister.  I will get to that, but first some of the best from the past.

Kerry’s daughter Vanessa is married to an Iranian national and physician. His best man at the ceremony was the son of Mohammad Javad Zarif, Iran’s Minister of Foreign Affairs. Zarif was Kerry’s chief counterpart in the nuclear deal negotiations.

 

Let us look at this earlier post. Is Kerry being blackmailed with his Iranian family ties?

“I am proud of the Iranian-Americans in my own family, and grateful for how they have enriched my life,” Kerry said in the official statement. Kerry also said he was “strongly committed to resolving” the differences between the United States and the Islamic Republic of Iran, “to the mutual benefit of both of our people.”

Anyone who has been around my blog knows I have been outraged that Iranian born Jarrett who still has friends in Iran has not been fully exposed for who she is, let us recall this information about Kerry, and his daughter’s husband’s family who happens to live in Iran. How in the world did Kerry even get a security clearance.

“But what if the regime simply decides to round up Nahed’s family members and torture them? Or sends its goons to visit them at home? Or exerts some form of more subtle pressure on them that gets no publicity, and then makes it known they want the United States to release Iranians jailed in the United States on terrorism charges or for attempting to procure weapons technology or military spare parts”?

Our patriot Kerry:

Kerry exposes Iranian family tie — and subjects family to blackmail

Secretary of State John Kerry exposed a secret that journalists and academics have been agonizing: the fact that his daughter has married an Iranian-American who has extensive family ties to Iran. Ed: You bet the agonizing was really deep – instead of reporting the facts, remaining complicit.

Trump’s sanctions were also imposed on eight senior commanders of Navy, Aerospace, and Ground Forces of the Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps (IRGC), the US Treasury Department said as well as Kerry’s friend Zariff

These commanders sit atop a bureaucracy that supervises the IRGC’s malicious regional activities, including its provocative ballistic missile program, harassment and sabotage of commercial vessels in international waters, and its destabilizing presence in Syria,” the department said in a statement.

Once more Kerry as the traitor he has always been. Doing all he can to make sure his own Iranian deal stays in place by visiting the major principles.

Former Secretary of State John Kerry is actively working to keep the Iran nuclear deal in place as U.S. weighs the future of the deal, according to a new report.

Kerry, who served as the nation’s top diplomat under former President Barack Obama, was an instrumental leader in the development of the 2015 Iran deal,

The Boston Globe reports Kerry met with Iranian Foreign Minister Javad Zarif to examine how to preserve the deal.

Additionally, he has met and spoken with several European officials on the matter, including German President Frank-Walter Steinmeier and French President Emmanuel Macron.

Iran police arrest 30 in yoga class

 

One wonders how long the Iranian people will tolerate the religious fanaticism of the Iranian regime. It’s not like the country has always been in the stone age. Unlike it’s uncivilized neighbors, Iran enjoyed a Western life style just a few decades ago. Something to be said for our Second Amendment.

Stock Photo. Not Iran

Thirty people taking part in a yoga session have been arrested during a private class in Iran, reports suggest, causing a buzz across the country’s social media.

They were detained at a private residence in the northern city of Gorgan, where they were apparently taking part in a mixed class.

Local justice department official Massoud Soleimani said the instructor, who was also arrested, had no licence to run the class and had advertised the event on Instagram.

He also said that those taking part were wearing “inappropriate outfits” and had “behaved inappropriately”, the Tasnim news agency reports.

The Islamic establishment in Iran does not allow any mixed-gender sports activities.

Professional-level yoga teaching is also banned in the country.

Twitter is officially banned in the country. However, there does appear to be an increased surveillance of Instagram by Iran’s authorities, especially more recently.

This week the social media accounts of at least three street musicians were apparently seized by Iranian authorities for publishing “criminal content”, while singer Negar Moazzam is currently under investigation after performing for a group of tourists in the country’s Isfahan Province.

Her Instagram account is no longer public.

Senator Feinstein caught talking to Iran on unsecure IPhone

If we thought the latest kerfuffle over Kerry’s mixing into foreign policy regarding Iran recently was a Logan problem, add the concept of Feinstein walking around congress on an unsecured line talking on her IPhone to Iranian Prime Minister Zarif.

The same Zarif that Kerry is so involved with. Keep in mind, Kerry’s daughter Vanessa is married to an Iranian national and physician. His best man at the ceremony was the son of Mohammad Javad Zarif, Iran’s Minister of Foreign Affairs. Zarif was also Kerry’s chief counterpart in the nuclear deal negotiations.

First just for old times sake:

Kerry and his Iranian in-law relatives. Could he be black mailed?

But back to the business at hand. A portion of the take down by Mark Levin that is well worth hearing the full thing.

LevinTV host Mark Levin called out the hypocrisy of the Democrats after Sen. Dianne Feinstein, was caught on the phone with Iranian Foreign Minister Javad Zarif earlier Thursday, and the media said nothing.

“He’s the foreign minister to an enemy state that seeks to attack American military personnel in the Middle East, that seeks to put nuclear warheads on ICBMs so they can reach the United States. It is a terrorist regime, an Islamo-Nazi regime in Tehran, that has killed Americans, that funds Hezbollah to kill Americans, that funds Hamas to kill, and is a threat to our national security, obviously,” Levin said. “What in the hell is the ranking Democrat on the Senate Intelligence Committee doing talking on an iPhone around the Capitol to Javad Zarif?”

“What is it with these Democrats fronting for this Islamo-Nazi regime that wants to kill Americans and Jews in Israel? You’ve got Frankenfeinstein, you’ve got … John Kerry — or the real Frankenstein — giving aid and comfort to the enemy! It’s not enough that they released $150 billion to this regime; now they’re giving it advice, against the president of the United States. You want to talk about the Logan Act? You want to talk about collusion?”

Levin pointed out that the media, of course, has said nothing about Feinstein’s phone call.

“Don Trump Jr. has a meeting with a couple of Russians, meeting turns out to nothing, and it’s the crime of the century. Except Mueller says it’s not, but the media says it is. You have Dianne Frankenfeinstein on her damn cell phone with the foreign minister of Iran! Anybody want to know what they discussed? ‘No, no, that’s Dianne, we like her,’” Levin said.   H/T: Blazing Press
