We're seeing the death of all the ancient ways of seeing the region.

Multiple countries in and out of the region exploited the past, but all of that is ending.

We're going to see regional peace before Trump leaves office.

"Take it easy, lady," he said in perfect English. "We're all getting paid to do this."

Then he winked at Marian and went back to shouting anti-American slogans.

Marian thought it was extremely funny.

She never lost her love of Iran or the Iranians.

She died in 2006. I wrote this in 2013.

Like Marian, I have nothing against the Iranian people.

In 1950, Curtis and Marian went to Iran. Curtis's job was--officially--to train the Imperial Iranian Gendarmerie.

I found his field notes.

He was doing a lot more than training gendarmes.

Marian loved Iran and the Iranians.

Oh, I should tag in @HeshmatAlavi

Start this thread at the top, Heshmat.

So one day Curtis and Marian got caught in an anti-American protest. This was in 1952.

I have a copy, but I haven't watched it yet.

What I used to do was watch movies until I fell asleep on the sofa.

It took me a long time to break that habit. Now I write.

But I'll get back to movies at some point.

Then they flew it BY COMMITTEE to Australia.

None of them had ever flown before.

But they'd all talked to pilots. So they cobbled together A PILOT from their shared knowledge.

They took off, navigated to Australia, and landed. Safely.

Wouldn't that make a great movie?

A war movie with no blood. No preaching. Just celebration of the will to overcome.

5. I have ZERO sympathy for anyone who loses their money on the Obama Cathedral, though.

It's been OBVIOUS for 2 years that it will never be built.

Trump's revenge on Obama will be something to behold.

Obama's legacy has already been wiped from the map.

By 2024, Obama's name will never be spoken of again.

His image will be erased.

The only trace of him will be in schoolrooms, where kids will learn about how Obama & his goons almost destroyed the Republic.

The end.

3. And there's always a corporate sucker who will hand over shareholder money to these Chicago hucksters.

In this case, NIKE, China slave owner. $5 million pissed up against the wall, for a project that's never going to be built.

They'll never see that money again.

Mini Mike Bloomberg doesn’t get on the Democrat Debate Stage because he doesn’t want to - he is a terrible debater and speaker. If he did, he would go down in the polls even more (if that is possible!).

I had a short term job going into Canada to bring down freight to Texas;

while up there I went into the big box store to get some food for the trip back and man!, Canada's food prices are outrageous (even after adjusting for the conversion rate)...

I was amazed...

So I don't blame them one bit for not wanting to support 'royalty'.

Amnesty International said Wednesday it had evidence that Iranian security forces used sexual violence against women in peaceful protests after Tehran admitted it accidentally shot down a Ukrainian airliner.

The Daily Beast
Far from denouncing the acts, Sanders stood with those who applauded the hostage taking.
If Sanders were to become the Democratic presidential nominee, all this will come pouring out in Trump ads on television and social media. Voters will see TV clips of the American hostages, blindfolded and abused, alongside Sanders as the Trotskyist elector supporting the Iranian kidnappers.

Look at this writer putting down his fellow Canadians' for not wanting to put these free loaders up.

More advice: Should I have Ben, my 2nd grader, tell his Dem teacher that President Trump is going to win in 2020, but he'll be sure to bring her lots of Kleenex on election day? Just kidding, or am I? 😅

Attorney General William Barr on Monday announced the Justice Department’s first policy change in response to the FBI’s mucking around in the 2016 election. Henceforth, both an AG and the FBI director must sign off on any proposed counterintelligence investigation into a presidential campaign.
