1/ #BREAKING The ground in #Lebanon is rumbling. So much going on that requires surveillance.
Economic collapse, #Hizbullah mischief along #Israel's border, government collapse, & a ticking bomb that was set 15 yrs ago, which could blow up Friday and collapse the whole house. 🇱🇧
2/ #Breaking #Lebanon.
@yonibmen has excellent piece (in Hebrew for now) on the terrorist incursion along #Israel-#Syria border last night.
Little doubt Hizbullah's behind it & seeks to deflect the IDF from attacking Leb. These attacks have history.
3/#Breaking #Lebanon.
Hizb, #Iran & Syria worked to set up a Golan liberation militia to attack #Israel from Syria.
First leader, Samir Kuntar, a vile terrorist who smashed a Jewish baby. Killed on Golan in 2015 in Israeli air strike.

IRGC hoards health masks and disinfectants amid Iran’s #COVID19 crisis.
#Coronavirus #CoronaOutbreak @WHO #pandemia
@UN @ForeignOffice @usadarfarsi @StateDept @SecPompeo @USUN
Iran is suffering from a drastic shortage of medical supplies, like masks and disinfectants, because the regime’s Revolutionary Guards Corps (#IRGC) is stockpiling them and selling them to the public at a major mark up.
#Coronavirus #COVID19 @WHO #pandemia
State-run media reports that health masks priced at 2,000 rials are being sold for thirty times more in many places across #Iran. In some places, they now cost 150,000 rials. Yet still, people wait in long lines to pay big money for these essentials that are in short supply.

Thread: As I’ve been talking to #Iranians in #Iran over the last couple weeks, some family & others friends I came to know over course of my yrs of field research in Iran, I’ve collected some of the more illuminating, interesting & at times heartbreaking comments 👇🏽
“After the nuclear deal we should’ve been flying in new Boeing planes, not shooting them down. How far we have fallen is truly sorrowful. From the hope of a different future, a moment of change, to not only broken promises, but what feels like darker days from the past”
“More than anything I’m scared. I believed in nuclear deal, it gave me hope for a better future & #Iran abided by it. It seems like we were punished for that. Now I’m scared of war & what might become of us. Iraq, Libya, Syria? The examples around us are grim”

1) Random musings from an average #QAnon Patriot trying to make sense of the #Iranian Puzzle.


2) I have been doing my best to make real-time and future predictions during evolving geo-political events.

Like most Anons I try to provide a point of difference from the MSM and interpret with the benefit of a #QAnon Research background.
3) Recently I made a gaffe on the run and now I feel pretty silly.

In this game it is an occupational hazard; but I reckon to date most stuff has been close enough to the mark or not too much of a howler.

Full solidarity with #Iranians. It is their right to protest and they must decide where and against whom.

Protesters in Tehran have chanted calls for the resignation of officials, after Iran admitted it accidentally shot down a Ukrainian passenger plane.…
Relatives and friends of those who died held a vigil near the Amirkabir University of Technology on Saturday.

Videos uploaded to social media show a crowd gathered, with some chanting for their country's leaders to resign and calling officials "liars". #Iran
Condolences to all who lost loved ones in the downed plane.

And the Trump regime - especially that zealot Pompeo - should shut the fuck up.

This is about #Iranians exercising their right to protest. The US administration doesn’t give a flying fuck about them.

How Dangerous is the Situation Between the U.S. and #Iran?

I joined @vali_nasr and @MicheleDDunne for a debate over Trump's decision to kill #IRGC-QF Cmdr Qasem #Soleimani, the fallout, and what will likely come next. Full episode video at the link:
@vali_nasr @MicheleDDunne The idea that the US lacked justification for taking out #Soleimani is bonkers. It's not even a matter of how imminent an attack is; it's all the American blood already on his hands. I explain 👇
#Iran #Iraq
@vali_nasr @MicheleDDunne As I explain, "we're at a point right now where most mainstream media in the US and the talking points among leading Democrats - including presidential candidates - are more pro-Iranian regime than the Iranian people are." #Iran #Iraq #Soleimani 👇

(1/)Something has been on my mind since yesterday evening, so I’m going to ask if any of you have been thinking the same thing too.

I’ve noticed leadership in the Dems Party had to impeach
.@POTUS “because he’s a threat to national security.”
(2/)@SpeakerPelosi is still refuto send the Articles of Impeachment to the Senate.

So is our .@POTUS a threat to our national security, or not?

It appears he isn’t that much of a threat, since .@SpeakerPelosi is holding onto them!
(3/)Now Iran is sabre rattling, doing what they do best, threatening to retaliate against the USA.

The Iranian Foreign Minister, ON
.@CNN, stated @POTUS “has been fed misinformation.”

I don’t believe that for a hot New York second!

#Iran's Soleimani’s funeral: The hallmark of a theocratic propaganda machine
Taking sheer numbers for legitimacy is an insult to the people of Iran who bravely took part in #IranProtests &lost 1000s of their loved ones.…
1. According to #Iran's state-run media, millions of #Iranians attended the funeral of the regime’s top military commander in Tehran. They published pics of Soleimani’s funeral, saying sheer numbers proved ppl supported the regime and its chief terrorist.
2. Mainstream media were quick to push the regime’s agenda. What they fail to mention is the most fundamental feature of the current #Iranian state. It’s a theocracy & dictators are good at forcing the masses to attend propaganda gatherings.

#Iran regime & MSM(@CNN @NYTimes @NBCNews) in the #US are portraying a criminal, a Child Killer &a war culprit in #Syria,#Iraq & a prime executioner in #Iran(#QassemSoleimani)as "revered"&N.Hero.
To MSM: Stop this dirty business. It's legitimizing the massacre of #IranProtesters Qassem Soleimani's criminal record.
@CNN @nytimes @NBCNews @IranNW @GiulioTerzi @iran_policy @STRUANSTEVENSON @USAdarFarsi @USAmbUN @StateDept @RichardGrenell @FoxNews @UNHumanRights Let's examine this here in the next few tweets. Is #Soleimani really a "hero" to #Iranians like what's being portrayed out of #Iran's state media, given the censorship,&lack of any freedom 4the ppl to show their true feelings?

Qassem Soleimani was killed in an air strike by the #US in #Baghdad. Equivalent to Jiang Zemin in #China, Soleimani was a dominant figure in the military, politics and oil industry of #Iran. Most of his family reside in #HongKong, #Shanghai and #Beijing.
#China’s Bank of Kunlun was established by Soleimani family in collaboration with the #CCP. The actual #Chinese main shareholders are Jiang Zemin, Wang Qishan, Meng Jianzhu (and Zhou Yongkang before jailed). Its asset has increased from $17 billion to $28 billion.
#Bank of Kunlun is a tool of #Iran’s Soleimani, Khamenei and the #CCP kleptocrats to launder money and evade the #US sanctions @robert_spalding @MischaEDM @WarrenPlatts @geoff_p_wade @DanRDimicco @Jkylebass @BenKTallmadge @IndoPac_Info @BoycottHegemony…

1: The key here is the reaction of the people.

Most Iraqis don't like the Iranians and the Iranian influence. The anti govt protests there were against a govt controlled by the Iranians and against the Iranians themselves. The PMUs were the ones using snipers to shoot protesters
2: With regards to #Iran, this is a big event that can't go without retaliation. The situation can easily lead to a full scale war. Everybody in the region is now preparing for the eventuality of war.

If conflict starts, It'll be a regional war including Israel, Hezboallah, etc
3: Let's not even talk about the price of oil if conflict starts. This is the oil hub of the world & doesn't matter is a country is self sufficient in oil or not. Oil follows an international price. So if the fireworks go in big scale, oil will skyrocket & the economy 👎

Thread: Why nationwide #IranProtests will erupt again, more radicalized
1.There have been major nationwide protests around every decade in #Iran, each one more radicalized than the last. The Iranian regime has always had enemies from among the people due to its theocratic nature.
2. As a result, during the 1980’s, known as the dark era in terms of the blatant suppression of dissent, at least 30,000 political opponents of the clerical regime were executed in prisons across #Iran.The regime never announced the number of executed political prisoners.
3. Eleven years later, in 1999, a Tehran University student uprising was violently suppressed by security forces. More than 4 students were killed while hundreds were injured. In the aftermath of these incidents, more than 70 students disappeared. #IranProtests

On Thanksgiving Day, #Iranians should thank God that @realDonaldTrump is the President of the United States.
If @POTUS and @SecPompeo had said anything in support of the coup, on the first day of the demonstrations, the #IRGC would have killed ...
… thousands more to make the #coup look wider & replace the #Iranian regime with the #MEK.
#RezaPahlavi would then have become the king, like the Queen of England!
Now that their fabricated coup has failed, the regime must arrest the real protesters.
And of course, the internet was shut down so that the leader of the #Restart_opposition could not turn the coup into a real demonstration like in Dec 2017-Jan 2018.
It is interesting to know that in January 2018, Restartees were changing the regime...

1. @iran_policy respects freedoms of all #Iranian national minorities as stated in its finding constitution. #NCRI is built upon solidarity, therefore it does not hold the least interest of hurting this foundation.
