As the U.S. and its Western allies remain largely silent about ongoing anti-government protests raging across Iran, the world’s biggest Iranian resistance movement is set to hold its annual rally this weekend to call on the West to support the demonstrators and adopt a tougher policy toward Tehran’s Islamist regime.
The large, two-day gathering, titled “Free Iran World Summit 2022: Iran on the Brink of Change, Resistance Key to Victory,” is being organized by the National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI) and its associate group, the exiled People’s Mojahedin Organization of Iran (MEK).
The event will be held in Ashraf 3, in Albania, home of the MEK, which the Iranian regime calls a “terrorist” organization.
Late last week, Iran’s government placed sanctions on 61 more Americans for backing the MEK, including former Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, former White House National Security Adviser John Bolton, and former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani.
The list also included several members of the U.S. Congress from both political parties, such as Sens. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) and Cory Booker (D-N.J.) and House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.).
Many of those blacklisted by Iran will either be attending or speaking virtually at the gathering this weekend. At least 35 members of Congress, both Republicans and Democrats, will participate in the event along with parliamentary delegations from around the world, according to organizers.
Several former senior officials, including heads of state, from the U.S., Europe, and elsewhere will also participate.
The high-profile gathering of Iranian dissidents and their supports comes as anti-government protests that have erupted across Iran in recent months continue to spread.The rising cost of food and other staples last month sparked sporadic unrest in several Iranian provinces. The demonstrations quickly turned political, with protesters decrying the regime — in many cases calling for its downfall — in […]
Don’t wait until food shortages get REALLY bad before stocking up. Get a three-month’s supply now while it’s still available.
Will America-First News Outlets Make it to 2023?
Things are looking grim for conservative and populist news sites.
There’s something happening behind the scenes at several popular conservative news outlets. 2021 was bad, but 2022 is proving to be disastrous for news sites that aren’t “playing ball” with the corporate media narrative. It’s being said that advertisers are cracking down, forcing some of the biggest ad networks like Google and Yahoo to pull their inventory from conservative outlets. This has had two major effects. First, it has cooled most conservative outlets from discussing “taboo” topics like Pandemic Panic Theater, voter fraud, or The Great Reset. Second, it has isolated those ad networks that aren’t playing ball.
Certain topics are anathema for most ad networks. Speaking out against vaccines or vaccine mandates is a certain path to being demonetized. Highlighting voter fraud in the 2020 and future elections is another instant advertising death penalty. Throw in truthful stories about climate change hysteria, Critical Race Theory, and the border crisis and it’s easy to understand how difficult it is for America-First news outlets to spread the facts, share conservative opinions, and still pay the bills.
Without naming names, I have been told of several news outlets who have been forced to either consolidate with larger organizations or who have backed down on covering certain topics out of fear of being “canceled” by the ad networks. I get it. This is a business for many of us and it’s not very profitable. Those of us who do this for a living are often barely squeaking by, so loss of additional revenue can often mean being forced to make cuts. That means not being able to cover the topics properly. Its a Catch-22: Tell the truth and lose the money necessary to keep telling the truth, or avoid the truth and make enough money to survive. Those who have chosen survival simply aren’t able to spread the truth properly.
We will never avoid the truth. The Lord will provide if it is His will. Our job is simply to share the facts, spread the Gospel, and educate as many Americans as possible while exposing the forces of evil.
To those who have the means, we ask that you please donate. We have options available now, but there is no telling when those options will cancel us. We just launched a new GiveSendGo page. We also have our GivingFuel page. There have been many who have been canceled by PayPal, but for now it’s still an option. Your generosity is what keeps these sites running and allows us to get the truth to the masses. We’ve had great success in growing but we know we can do more with your assistance.
Thank you, and God Bless!
