Stories about the cascading crisis at our U.S. southern border are expanding of late, thanks to concerted efforts by dedicated investigative journalists and this Defend The Border team and website. There is more information being made available now about the deadly cost in assaults, virtual enslavement and sex trafficking, rape, and murder of the illegal aliens who attempt the arduous trek to the north. But until this story, posted at John Solomon's Just The News site, there has been scant mention of the toll that the border crisis has been exacting among our own Customs and Border Protection (CBP) agents.
In July 2021, Congressman Mo Brooks (R-AL) issued a Press Release that, to date, stands out for its courage and honesty. Rep. Brooks wrote about a meeting he'd attended with Dr. Li-Meng Yan, a Chinese medical doctor, Ph.D. virologist, and whistleblower, who fled to the U.S. from Hong Kong in 2020 after being threatened with being "disappeared" for speaking out about the origins of the SARS-CoV-2. Her mission since then has been to warn America and the world about the Chinese Communist Party (CCP)'s offensive Biological Warfare (BW) program.
In what must be seen as a stunning development in the current protest movement in Iran, a group of seminary students and their teachers in the seminary city of Qom issued a statement on Sept. 30, 2022, declaring that the core ideology of the Islamic Republic of Iran — the Velayat-e Faqih or Rule of the Jurisprudent — is no longer valid.
It's hard to overestimate how important this statement is to the perception of regime validity among the Iranian people and even more importantly among the Shi'ite clergy.
Velayat-e Faqih, the Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini's signature, personal ideology, has been the absolute foundation of theological legitimacy in Iran since the 1979 Revolution.
Almost exactly 20 years ago, on Aug. 14, 2002, Alireza Jafarzadeh, the deputy director of the National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI)-U.S. held a news conference at Washington, D.C.'s historic Wilard Hotel.
For the first time, details about Iran's clandestine nuclear weapons program were unveiled. Satellite photographs helped provide specific details about the Natanz enrichment site and the secret Arak heavy water production plant in the nation of Iran.
Over the coming months and years, other revelations about the Iranian nuclear program surfaced.
Fast forwarding to Aug. 17 of this year, Jafarzadeh headed another NCRI press conference, again at the Willard.
On Sept. 9, 2001, the Iranian regime directed an assassination in Afghanistan.
Ahmad Shah Massoud, the powerful commander of the United Islamic Front for the Salvation of Afghanistan (also known as The Northern Alliance) opposition to the Taliban, was killed in a town in northeastern Afghanistan. Two al-Qaida suicide bombers posing as journalists had gained direct access to him, ostensibly for an interview. A powerful bomb concealed inside their camera blew up, killing Massoud, who died en route to a hospital.
The killers, of North African background, had been recruited by Iran in Belgium, trained, equipped, and inserted into Massoud's presence in collaboration with al-Qaida and the Taliban.
