‘Reformist’ Rouhani Fights Hardliners in 2nd Iranian Presidential Debate

The second presidential debate took place in Iran and while President Rouhani came under heavy fire from hardline rivals, they all agreed on one thing: The nuclear deal is a good thing for the theocratic, jihadist Islamic Republic of Iran.

Iran Tried to Strike US Naval Base: Bahrain

The Iranian regime may have backed off of a ballistic missile test following President Trump’s sanctions and threats, but its jihad through proxies continues unabated. The U.S.-allied government of Bahrain just wrapped up another Iranian sleeper cell network that was planning to attack the base of the U.S. Navy’s Fifth Fleet, according to the Bahraini government.

Meet the Candidates Running in Iran’s Presidential ‘Election’

  The Iranian regime has approved of six presidential candidacies, disqualifying over 1,600 -- including over 130 women -- who filed to run. The “election” will be held on May 19, followed by a runoff between the top two vote-getters if no candidate wins a majority. Before reviewing the candidates, we should look at how this sham “election” takes place. To run for president in Iran, the Guardian Council must approve of the candidacy. Only six of over 1,600 candidacies were approved. Thus, it must be assumed that any distinction being mentioned between “moderate” and “conservative” candidates is very minor.…

Iran’s Presidential Debate Shakes Up Race

The first debate of the Iranian presidential contest may cause a shakeup in the campaign, as the more hardline candidate favored by Supreme Leader Ayatollah Khamenei was seen as the big loser of the debate and Vice President Eshaq Jahangiri came out as the clear winner -- so much so that Iranians on social media have nicknamed him “Super Eshaq” and "Thug Life." Before we go any further, let’s be clear: The presidential “election” scheduled for May 19 is not democratic, free or fair. The regime only permitted six of around 1,600 candidates to run. Regime opponent Shahriar Kia explains…
