Pres. Trump Says Iranian People Partly Protesting Over Government Funded Terrorism

December 31, 2017

OAN Newsroom

President Trump addresses the Iranian people’s ongoing protests against their government.

In a tweet posted Sunday, Trump noted the demonstrations are widespread and suggested the Iranian people are partly raising their voices over how their money is being spent by the government.

He said the people of Iran are noticing the government is wasting the nations wealth on supporting terrorism and also said the protest is an indication they will no longer tolerate the practice.

The president also revealed the U.S. is monitoring the situation for human rights violations.

    I did the Mirabad Airport Aircraft Overhaul and Maintenance Facilities engineering manuals for Lockheed about the time Carter helped the bloody Iatolla Komini come out of exile from France. I had several Iranians as good friends when we were fellow doctoral students in Switzerland. One of my friends and his family later managed to escape to California before the new regime clamped down. There are roughly two groups of Iranians. (1) the educated intelligencia (bankers, lawyers, merchants, military leaders, etc.) who create the economy and make things work, and (2) the religious clerics, Mullahs who run the show, their military leaders, rank and file soldiers, uneducated manual workers, and rabble.

    The first group are stressed to the point of breaking but show restraint for fear of reprisals. The second group are suffering greatly and are at the point where they don’t give a damn about the consequences. If both groups get together the Theocracy is finished, with a lot of bloodshed.

    My sense is that it’s too late for the revolutionaries to back down and the current regime is panicking . The result could ultimately be a government similar to that of the UK where The Pahlavi family will return from exile and the late Shah’s son becoming King, guided and advised by two houses of parliament.

    The current regime sees no way out. Trump is, of course, providing encouragement. The fan will soon be splattered. … MIGA.

    Happy New Year everyone.

      Thank you for your contribution to the discussion. I enjoyed the explanation. I worked for Lockheed for many years and I had a chance to to the Middle East on contract, but I turned them down.

      • TexanForever

        When I was involved I was a contract engineer for Volt, assigned to Lockheed at Azusa. After a year Lockheed wanted me to leave Volt and come on-board as a full time Lockheed employee so they could send me to Myrabad on detatched assignment. I told them “no thanks,” it would mean a pay cut and having to conform to Lockheed’s dress standards.

        Lockheed guys were already rotating back on assignment with stories of increasing Iranian government helicopters and military having to put a lid on “spontaneous” unlawful uprisings by Mullah instigated disobedience in tourist recreational and historic areas. Not long after that the Shah, a good man, was forced to leave. I’m positive Carter and the US black operations were in collusion with the Iatolla’s forces. Carter once referred to the bloody Iatollah Comini as “a good religious man.”

        It’s good you turned down assignment to the Middle East.

        cheers

    Get some fire power to the people. They need guns not tweets! This Shiite leadership will turn on the people to stay in power. Get some military in place to stop the killing when it starts.

      • Mr. Maga

        not if we take care of our country, and stop thinking that we have to take in every stray puppy, and build a wall to stop the ones we have already deported 5 times. frankly, we need to STOP doing what we’ve been doing, and start using common sense.

    Unfettered freedom is a hard won fight. In my humble opinion it is time we re-fought the battle

    • internettoughguy

      There is no such thing as “unfettered freedom.”

      • landy fincannon

        Not that I’m interested in going there.

        However, I’d submit that the indigenous peoples of the Rain Forest are about as free as one could get.

        Think about, no oppressive government looking over your shoulder. Recording every form of communications, no groping grandmothers and children in the airport’s.
        Not having to grapple for permission to travel (drive), work (SS#), owning pets, camping, fishing, hunting. ..etc.

  • Fed Up !

    The part that makes me angry is that obuma the kenyan muslim traitor used our money to fund terrorism with Iran.

    • internettoughguy

      I’ve long debated whether people who continue to claim Barack Obama is a Muslim or birthers are more grotesquely, clownishly stupid. Thank you for not making me choose. (Because you’re both)

      • Fed Up !

        Thank you, I will happily remain a deplorable before turning into a ;liberal idiot.

  • internettoughguy

    Donald Trump has ZERO credibility to talk about human rights. He has clearly shown himself to be a wannabe authoritarian who admires dictators, autocrats and “strongmen,” while showing contempt for the democratically elected leaders of our traditional allies.

    • Let My People Go

      Lies.

      • internettoughguy

        Truth.
        See how that works? Now if you have something specific I’ll be happy to respond. And I won’t be mean about it.

    • Wanda

      How exactly has Trump “shown” himself to be a wannabe authoritarian? Which dictator does Trump admire the most? Example of how he showed “contempt” for the leader of a traditional ally. I see just the opposite, but am willing to consider your premise.

      • internettoughguy

        Wow. Where to start?
        He congratulated Reciip Erdogan for crushing democracy in Turkey. That’s a big one for me because Turkey is a member of NATO. He said he wants to invite the murderous, foul-mouthed thug running the Philippines (Rodrigo Duterte) to the U.S. for a state visit.
        He refused to shake hands with German Chancellor Angela Merkel. He told British PM Teresa May to shut up and mind her own business when she criticized him for re-tweeting bogus anti-Muslim videos from a neo-Nazi website.
        Shall I go on?

        • Wanda

          So, you are saying Trump congratulated Erdogan for “crushing” democracy in Turkey? I will check that out. I found all kinds of photos of Trump and Merkel shaking hands so that one is suspect. Teresa May.. I was not aware that he told her to “shut up”. I know he criticized her for overstepping her bounds. Not the same thing but will do some research. Like it or not, Duterte IS the leader of Philippines and Trump is well within his authority to invite for state visit. Lots of “thugs” have been invited to US. Obama invited Muslim groups with links to terrorism to the white. Does that make him a wannabe authoritarian? Just saying that there many ways to look at things and see a completely different picture. Never take things at face value.

        • Wanda

          Looks like you failed. No need to go on.

  • SaidNO2Liberalism

    Stop sending our taxpayers money to countries that hate us.

    • internettoughguy

      We could also try to not make people hate us. And our “freedom” is NOT the only reason some people hate us.

  • Fergus

    Remember Ole President Nixon said, if you want to find corruption follow the money! I believe in that respect that old liar was right about the money trail at least.
    The rest of what he said and did he remains a HUGE liar in my mind.

    • PatrickJ

      Nixon wasn’t a bad president. Unlike Hillary, he didn’t lie about anything really important. Bill and Hillary both make Nixon look good, not to mention Obama.

    • Wanda

      It is somewhat humorous to see just how far we have come since Nixon. Not forgiving him, but we now know that a political party(s) participated in the fabrication of a phony Russian dossier to harm a candidate. What Nixon did appears to pale in comparison. Can only assume it will get worse in future if measures are implemented to confront it. Trump seems to be only one that seems to care.

    Iran is all about lies evil and Islamo-fascism. Their “millenials” have been brain washed, so even though they might rise up and kill the ayatolla and all his thieving mass murdering cohorts, they still might not be easy to deal eith. …. That being said….. DEPOSE the Ayatollahassahola and all those radical islamic terrorists! And by depose, i mean …….

    I want to wish the First Family a HAPPY NEW YEAR, and that God for President Trump. MAGA in the new year!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Barack Obama allowed the terror
    group Hezbollah to sell $200 million in cocaine annually in American
    cities to facilitate Iran nuclear deal.
    Multiple DEA agents speaking anonymously to Politico have
    confirmed that Team Obama spent eight years derailing a multi-agency
    investigation targeting Hezbollah, in order to facilitate the
    disastrous Iran nuclear deal.

    In a nutshell, Obama allowed Hezbollah
    to operate a multi-billion dollar cocaine distribution and money
    laundering scheme IN THE UNITED STATES to “soften up” Iran for
    nuclear talks. Every time the DEA attempted to take action against
    Hezbollah, the Obama administration threw up roadblocks. Obama let
    Hezbollah establish itself as an organized crime operation on
    American soil, so that he could score what he viewed as a “foreign
    policy win” with Iran. Google it yourself, make your own
    judgement.

        That is what the article had, I just copied and pasted.

    • landy fincannon

      Just a friendly reminder. Barry Seal in the 80’s smuggled guns into Nicaragua and cocaine out. Then flew it to Mena Arkansas. All with the blessings of the CIA, of course

  • SaidNO2Liberalism

    Claims of Islam being a religion of peace is like saying that turds don’t stink.

  • Kate

    I don’t know if anyone else has seen the reports of unmarked aircraft, no flight plans given and no destinations given for many charter aircraft leaving Iran last evening and during the night, also the Iranians have been surrounding Khomenei’s mansion, it seems the mainstream press are neglecting their jobs and not researching this to see if true, and if it is true it will be huge for the world when the Mullahs are overthrown. 2018 could be starting out better than we could hope for. MAGA

    • Legion

      Rumor has it that the crowds have surged to well over 300,000 protestors that are tearing down all images of Khomenei and chanting “Death to Khomenei!”
      .. also that many high level wealthy figureheads have already fled the country with their assets.

      • Kate

        Yes, and I read that some of the police or guards are taking off their uniforms and joining the rioters.
        Happy New Year and MAGA

      • akaMDB

        Fingers crossed that it’s true! It’d be great to see Iran become a terrorism free nation!!

    • akaMDB

      You can’t be shocked that the MSM isn’t covering that … after all, why would they give airtime to people who are going against a government they clearly support?

      • Kate

        No, I am not shocked sadly this is what the main stream press has sunk to, the mouth piece for a leftest political party and they are blatant about it even if it destroys them.

    Happy New Year everyone! Yes, things are I finally moving in the right direction. I about gave up under our last LackoLeader, but I’m starting to think there’s still hope to…..Make America Great Again.

    • PatrickJ

      Thanks, Lenny. I think you pretty much covered the bases.

  • PatrickJ

    Love you guys. Closing for the evening. Trust me. Trump will make this thing work.

  • PatrickJ

    If you want to know the real truth, at times in the past I had pretty much given up on this country of my birthright. i could see the way it was going with the Democrats and the Communists. Not much difference between the two actually, when you really think about it.

    Because they had us on a path that would eventually deny every freedom on the books, that our Founders tried their best to preserve for the future generations that they knew they would not be there to see.

    Actually, while some of you think it silly, I get a little choked up about the whole thing. Tell you why.

    Little by little, because of the people who pretend to represent us, we have lost freedoms that were put in place by our Founders. Our Founders thought they were concrete. God Bless them for that.

    Sadly, Democrats seem to be able to deal with concrete in a way that most of us never imagined.

    But then Trump came upon the scene. Think what you will of Trump, but he simply wiped the slate clean.

    He simply eliminated any chance the Liberal side of the argument that had any hope of succeeding under his Presidency. I love the man for that. He simply closed the Bull##it door and said , “no more of this.”

      • CASSY IS SASSY

        Hey Patrick, Happy New Year.

        • PatrickJ

          You know Cassy. Saying, “Happy New Year,” means more right now than it ever did in the History of this great nation. I’ll tell you why.

          Before I knew Trump was going to run, I fully believed that this half black, half white Idiot had done his job. The job he set out to do. To wit, Destroy America and any trace of what our Founders tried to do, all those two hundred and thirty years ago.

          Providence is amazing, though. Trump came upon the scene seemingly out of nowhere. He took a look around and said “this won’t stand.”

          And then he went to work to minimize the damage the Kenyan Immigrant did, and now we have our country back again, just like that. By one man. Well, maybe he wasn’t completely alone. Maybe Providence had a small part in the whole thing.

          Depends on what you believe in I guess. Regardless, I’m pretty much good with the outcome. God Bless this nation we call home.

          Shutting down the Mac pretty soon here. Unless you have something to say that captures my interest.

          • CASSY IS SASSY

          • PatrickJ

            There are a few people out there that make a difference to me. You are one of those people. Happy New Year. Hopefully it will be a good one for all Americans.

            Well, Thank You PatrickJ.
            And don’t worry….President Donald Trump, is NOT going to let us down.

            Yeah, I sort of believe that myself. When I look at what he is doing and the things he has planned, I can’t help but feel good about the whole thing.

            I believe he has or will. I know alot of liberals, many are fed up with what the democrats and liberals are doing or what they stand for. The President will win a second term.

            It’s gonna take a long time to tease the many destructive threads loose from the tangled web the Kenyan usurper has woven, but Trump and his team can get it done. As with any complex job there will be mistakes but in the end we will have our nation back again, stronger and better than ever. … MAGA.
