1)
Hypocrisy goes through the roof when #Obama pretends to talk about moral values on CBS’ 60 Minutes.

This thread is a look back at his disastrous foreign policy that ruined the lives of tens of millions of people, if not more, in #Iran & across the globe.
2)
Periodic reminder of the disastrous Obama era that gave us eight years of appeasement & weakness.

Iranian MP Alireza Zakani says the Obama administration gave Iran's regime $1.7 billion in unmarked cash, with $400 million in suitcases.
3)
Obama's moral values:

"Two high-level Iranian government backers, including a former Islamic Republic official and another accused of lobbying on Tehran's behalf, were hosted at the Obama White House for more than 30 meetings..."

Having Iran's lobbyists inside the White House.

@saharnow of @NIACouncil worked on the Iran nuclear deal & had close access to Obama himself.

If Nowrouzzadeh or anyone denies she was a NIAC member, her business card is evidence. ImageImageImageImage

1)
.@democracynow gives airtime to known #Iran apologist/lobbyist @NegarMortazavi (who is fond of @JZarif) to push the regime's talking points.

Note:
-Iran's FM spox: "... medicine & food, as you know, were not on any sanctions..."
-Iran rejected int’l aid

#FakeNews ImageImageImageImage
2)
Mortazavi is a former member of #Iran’s DC-based lobby group @NIACouncil & has very close ties with Iran’s FM @JZarif.

She is despised by Iranians.

And BTW, she boasts of having close contact with Team Biden.

I recommend watching this to the end.
3)
While claiming U.S. sanctions are causing medicine shortages & killing people in Iran, here’s what Mortazavi won’t tell you about Iran’s regime.

Iraqi military intelligence confiscated 19 containers of smuggled medicine from Iran.

1)
@CNN & @MSNBC eagerly provide airtime to #Iran lobbyist @tparsi.

Parsi has very close ties to Iran’s senior officials.
Remember the 2015 nuclear talks?

This thread focuses on Iran’s DC-based lobby group @NIACouncil, founded by Parsi.

Bear with me. This will be long.
2)
“The National Iranian American Council (NIAC) frequently echoes Tehran’s rhetoric in redirecting blame at the U.S. for Iranian aggression and malfeasance.”

This is an excellent look at NIAC provided by @michaeldjohnsjr.
nationalreview.com/2020/10/an-ira…
3)
NIAC was founded in 2002 by Parsi, an Iranian-born dual citizen of Iran & Sweden, former employee at the Swedish mission to the UN & and a vocal champion of Obama’s controversial Iran nuclear deal.

1)
A few thoughts on the assassination of Mohsen Fakhrizadeh, the father of #Iran’s nuclear [weapons] program.

To begin with, its interesting how the attack did not cause the vehicle to veer off in any way, change direction or hit the curb. Just neatly stopped.
2)
Three bullets seem to have very specifically targeted the driver.

A somewhat heavy object seems to have hit the center of the front windshield.

No bullet hole on the engine.

Clean shots. No “spraying” of bullets, as claimed by Iran's state media & related accounts.
3)
The car was most likely stopped when the firing began. The assassins were taking precise shots.

Image indicates one or more shooters could have also been firing from a rear angle.

Opening fire from the front & the rear freezes the vehicle with no room to escape.

Seasonal rains lead to massive flooding due to poor infrastructure.

Reminder:
Iran has the world's 2nd largest natural gas & 4th largest oil reserves. The money goes to:

-Assad
-Hezbollah
-ballistic missiles
-an unnecessary nuclear program …

Seasonal rains lead to massive flooding & ruining people's lives due to mismanagement & poor infrastructure.

And the regime continues to fund:
Assad—$15 bn/yr
Hezbollah—$700 mill/yr
Houthis—at least $360 mill/yr
Hamas—$360 mill/yr
Iraqi militias—$150 mill/yr

Locals reporting even sewages are overflowing.

One person says, "They're not doing anything. Not the governor's office, nor the municipality, nothing. They just steal money!"
