It’s more than political action, but short of outright warfare. That gray area that free countries just don’t do any more.

Our Samuel Adams

My friend Frank Gaffney very graciously credited me in his March 6 Washington Times op-ed celebrating the life of our mutual co-conspirator Andrew Breitbart. Andrew died last week at age 43. He was a masterful political provocateur, a one-man media operation who fearlessly took on the leviathan establishment. I was one of the founding contributing editors to Andrew’s BigPeace.com, and...

British cartoons during the American Revolution

This fine electronic collection of historical British political cartoons has just come to my attention. The cartoons and sketches parody and otherwise skewer the American Revolution and its allies. This file contains more than 150 British political cartoons concerning the American Revolution. Each is accompanied by an archivist’s description. The two sample cartoons are representative: One shows American savages hanging...

Threat of lawsuit spiked UK report on ‘head of state’ funding of al Qaeda

Was it a sharp-eyed editor’s discovery of a false story, or outside forms of influence that caused a major London newspaper to spike its story yesterday about an unnamed “head of state” whose inner circle  has been funding al Qaeda? It turns out that threats of a lawsuit under Britain’s archaic “guilty until proven innocent” libel laws, briefly caused the...

Exposing mullahs’ corruption, if done consistently, can undermine Iranian regime

The Islamic Republic has turned Iran into a theocratic mafiaocracy in which the mullahs and their minions have pimped the revolution for their own financial gain. The regime has used Islamic doctrine as an ideological justification for what has become just another gangster regime. On May 16, we reported on the existence of a list, appearing first on a CNN...

Documenting regime crimes can be used as destabilization tool

(From IranChannel.org) Did you ever wonder what those mullahs did with the monthly zakat contributions from faithful Iranian Muslims? This video gives an idea. It was surreptitiously taken last year at the Hozeh Elmieh Seminary in Qom, shot at a 90 degree angle from behind a wooden screen. We can tell that the adult in the video is a Shi’a...

Report: Khamenei and son stashed billions in foreign accounts

(From IranChannel.org) Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei and his son Mojtaba have stolen billions of dollars from Iran and stashed the money in foreign accounts. This is according to a document that purports to show the ill-gotten wealth in foreign bank accounts of 1,000 of Iran’s leaders and family members. The list shows that Khamenei (in photo dressed in pink) and...

Leaked Iranian intelligence report reveals fratricide and corruption

A leaked classified report by Iranian Intelligence Minister Heydar Moslehi reveals intense fratricide at the highest levels of the Islamic Republic, as well as staggering levels of official corruption. The report, made public by a reformist dissident news organization inside Iran, has received little publicity in the outside world. The reformist news group, GreenCorrespondents.com, provides a full context and commentary...

Crooked mullahs: Khamenei places his son in control of Iran’s oil

It’s a classic case of an isolated elite in a dying regime, fighting over the spoils of the nation’s wealth. Iran’s petrodollars are now under the direct personal control of Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei, his son, and his most trusted inner circle. The Khamenei family has taken control of every aspect of Iran’s oil and gas industry, keeping all contracts,...

Ahmadinejad apparently bugged Khamenei’s compound

Now we see why President Ahmadinejad has seemed so confident in challenging Supreme Leader Khamenei. Apparently Ahmadinejad had succeeded in planting listening devices in Khamenei’s fortified compound. Our sources in Iran told us on April 24 that after the flap surrounding Ahmadinejad’s dismissal of Intelligence Minister Moslehi and Khamenei’s instruction that Moslehi remain in place, the security detail at Khamenei’s...

Details on the bitter conflict between Khamenei and Ahmadinejad

Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei is afraid of many things, but what concerns him most right now is that his main rival, President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, seems to be spoiling for a nasty, public fight. Like mafia gang wars, this fight promises to be brutal. It’s the type of fight in which the civilized world should be rooting for both sides –...
