Elder Patriot – Anti-government protests have spread across Iran turning increasingly violent over the past six days. The Washington Post reports that:
“Six days of demonstrations — which have left at least 20 people dead — showed no signs of easing as the anger from the streets found new targets. What began as frustration over Iran’s sluggish economy has broadened to include open defiance of Iran’s Islamic leadership itself.”
“The protests have been stunning in their ferocity and geographic reach, spreading to far-flung towns and cities that are strongholds of the middle and working classes.”
“…Iran’s establishment was clearly caught off guard by the speed and ferocity of the protests — the largest outpouring of opposition to the state since the disputed 2009 presidential elections.”
By the third night of protests Strategic Sentinel reported that a significant number of planes with “no callsign, origin, or destination” had been spotted leaving Iran.
Strategic Sentinel is a non-partisan, D.C. based geostrategic and international relations security consulting agency. They ran a live feed reporting events as they were unfolding that included this post:
Strategic Sentinel raised the possibility that the live flight radar suggests an exodus might be underway.
The next evening, after being briefed on the protests President Trump took to twitter to express his support for change in Iran by posting a video clip from the speech he recently gave at the United Nations:
Oppressive regimes cannot endure forever, and the day will come when the Iranian people will face a choice. The world is watching! pic.twitter.com/kvv1uAqcZ9

None of this is sitting well with the anti-Trump, anti-nationalism Globalists, who also remember Trump saying this at his inauguration:
“We will seek friendship and goodwill with the nations of the world, but we do so with the understanding that it is the right of all nations to put their own interests first. We do not seek to impose our way of life on anyone, but rather to let it shine as an example. We will shine for everyone to follow.
“We will reinforce old alliances and form new ones and unite the civilized world against radical Islamic terrorism, which we will eradicate completely from the face of the Earth.”
It was a sentiment that President Trump reiterated in his address to the UN where he said:
Rogue regimes represented in this body not only support terrorists, but threaten other nations and their own people with the most destructive weapons known to humanity.
Authority and authoritarian powers seek to collapse the values, the systems and alliances that prevented conflict and tilted the world toward freedom since World War II.
Trump continued tweeting encouragement to the Iranian protestors on the morning of December 31st:
That led to Super Globalist and former Obama National Security Advisor Susan Rice taking to twitter to tell the president to “be quiet.”
Rice stopped short of asking if Trump had a magic wand like her boss did after Trump promised to bring manufacturing jobs back to the United States.
In a series of tweets Trump continued signaling his intentions to not let this become another Tiananmen Square.
In 1989 the Communist Chinese government squashed student-led demonstrations in Beijing by killing as many as 10,454 protestors according to reports back then.
Globalist George H.W. Bush was president at the time and he decided to do nothing. From there, with dissent quelled, successive presidents Bill Clinton, George W. Bush, and Barack Obama began shipping our factories and jobs to China in accordance with the Globalists’ design to locate manufacturing in a region on the earth where workers know their place and wages, benefits, and working conditions could be more tightly controlled.
Interestingly, President Trump also cited Iran’s control of the Internet, something that has been happening in the United States with the algorithmic censorship of Internet giants Google, Facebook, YouTube, Twitter, et al who openly oppose Trump’s nationalistic challenge to their globalist stance.
President trump continued to signal support for the protestors and on New Year’s morning he called for regime change:
And, again this morning, the president warned Tehran that the United States would be watching:
Will this be another defining moment for President Trump who has already had a number of them as his first year draws to a close? Trump had previously identified North Korea and Iran as two “messes” that Obama previous administrations had left for him.
His support for the Iranian people echoes the support Ronald Reagan gave to the Polish uprising under the Solidarity movement led by Lech Walesa. Poland eventually won independence from Soviet domination and today its government, having lived through that experience is stridently nationalistic and refuses to take orders from Brussels.
At the time Reagan called it a “triumph of moral force over brute force.” Reagan also said that ”no government can destroy the hopes that burn in the hearts of a people. It’s a victory for those who seek to enlarge the human spirit over those who seek to crush it.”
If Trump sounds a lot like President Reagan that is because he, like the great Ronaldo Magnus, understands that the human spirit must be served. And, like Reagan, Trump is reversing the policies of his predecessor that left the military seriously depleted and a stagnant economy.
If Trump successfully brings regime change to North Korea and Iran the globalist plan will be left in shambles and world order will be restored. And, America’s leadership will once again be respected by those that matter the most, the people!
