What is happening in the Islamic Republic?

Meanwhile, in Iran:

Heroic Women Fighting for Freedom

Iranian women, by risking their lives, have unmasked the faces of those trying to promote burqas and hijabs as supposed “symbols of liberation”.

The slogans of the uprising: “Not Gaza, Not Lebanon, My Life Only for Iran!” “Let Syria Be, Do Something for Me!”

President Rouhani says have no demands .

Not true: Try 1) Free Elections, 2) Equality between men and women 3 )Fair distribution of national wealth 4) End to corruption 5) Independent judiciary and a Free press

After nearly four decades of plunderous and fanatical Islamic rule, Iranians are desperate to become a normal nation-state once more, and they refuse to be exploited for an ideological cause that long ago lost its luster. It is a watershed moment in Iran’s history: The illusion of reform within the current theocratic system has finally been shattered. Iranians, you might say, are determined to make Iran great again.

The Revolutionary Guard and the Basij are liquidating demonstrators in Iranian cities:

Pope Francis: Opponents of Mass Migration Sow ‘Violence, Racial Discrimination and Xenophobia’

Son of a *&^%$! Who will rid us of this degenerate?

In his new message for the World Day of Peace, Pope Francis has denounced those who question the wisdom of mass migration, accusing them of demagoguery and promoting xenophobia.

Those who decry “the risks posed to national security or the high cost of welcoming new arrivals,” are guilty of “demeaning the human dignity due to all as sons and daughters of God,” Francis said in the New Year’s message.

To resort to such “rhetoric,” the Pope continued, people “are sowing violence, racial discrimination and xenophobia, which are matters of great concern for all those concerned for the safety of every human being.”

The Catholic Church celebrates the World Day of Peace each year on New Year’s day, when it also commemorates the Solemnity of Mary, Mother of God. In his annual message for the Day of Peace, the Pope opted once again to underscore the plight of migrants and refugees, as he has on several occasions recently.

Migrants are men and women, children and elderly people, “who are searching for somewhere to live in peace,” Francis said, and in order to find that peace, “they are willing to risk their lives on a journey that is often long and perilous, to endure hardships and suffering, and to encounter fences and walls built to keep them far from their goal.”

Back to the land of fake news:

CNN last night: so-called “news anchors” partying at gay clubs, taking shots, and smoking weed, all live on air. These people are desperate for ratings.
