Trump’s Treasury Denounces Iran Bank Boss as a Terrorist

Trump’s Treasury is turning up the heat on Iran. On Tuesday it imposed terror sanctions on Valiollah Seif, the governor of the Iranian central bank, and another senior official, Ali Tarzali, who works in the central bank’s international division, according to the Associated Press.

Bolton, Hanson, and Color Revolution Plan for Iran

It will take a while for Trump and his crew of recycled neocons and neo-neocons—converts of the MAGA variety—to realize their perverse dream of overthrowing the mullahs in Iran.

An outright invasion is out of the question. While an invasion effectively overthrew Saddam Hussein and prepared the way for destroying Iraq, that event was preceded by more than a decade of medieval sanctions that killed over a million people, including 500,000 children. In effect, Iraq was a third world basket case with a broken military long before George W. Bush and his neocon marauders invaded.

John Bolton’s Plan B Now Operational

President Trump’s trashing of the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action has nothing to do with nuclear weapons, missile development, or even Iran’s supposed role as the world’s top sponsor of terror.

MAGA Dumbness

In my exchanges in the twitterverse, I have experienced a remarkable degree of ignorance concerning the history of Iran and Syria.

MAGA supporters, in particular, seem clueless.

Trump Sidekick Giuliani Addresses Terror Group Convention

Rudy Giuliani, the former New York mayor who recently joined buddy Trump’s legal team to do battle against Robert Mueller, gave a speech to the Iran Freedom Convention for Democracy and Human Rights in Washington on Saturday. He said Trump is committed to regime change in Iran. 

Giuliani, infamous for his crossdressing antics with Trump, also performed a theatrical stunt at the convention.

Trump Buys a Used Car from Bibi Netanyahu

Poor Trump. He’s a sucker for a lemon.

That’s what Bibi Netanyahu’s show was—an old wreck passed off as something new and revealing, a flimflam to get a big war going. 

It’s not clear if The Donald completely understood what his counterpart in  Israel had presented. He didn’t sit through the entire presentation. Fox News will encapsulate it for him.
