Hours ago on the orders of the american state department twitter has decided to censor my account for one week for confronting the american government for their support of the terrorist rajavi who has incited the current violence in Iran under the guise of freedom
This clearly demonstrates the american government is backing rajavi and her terrorists who are committing the violence in Iran. Lest one still think this is a lie read rajah's statements below and notice the timing from this demented elitist jendafarangistani
Additionally, notice how these so-called protesters are targeting vital military and government targets in Bandar Abbas and elsewhere, something which would only be done by those seeking to destroy Iran for there are many Soltani Talab in the Iranian government who oppose jomhori mollah but will defend Iran against invasion and who are prepared to work for permanent reform. After all why would people protesting for freedom attack their allies.
Those stupid enough to betray and attack Iran in the name of the islamist terrorist rajavi deserve to be destroyed.
Maidyarem Ghambar begins at sunset tonight and lasts for five days.
At present the homeland of Zarathustra is beset with troubles. As bad as jomhori mollah are we must understand that the mojahadeen led by rajavi are just as evil, as are the farangi in israel, america, britain, and around the World who continue to incite and encourage tortures in Iran and menace the heritage and pure faith of Zarathustra. While we must not support jomhori mollah we must not
Taking advantage of a recent protest in Mashad over high food prices rajavi's pmo/mek/ncr has began inciting riots around Iran today in Rasht, Qom, and earthquake ravaged Kermanshah, the latter where quake victims can be easily exploited, and rajavi's people are already bragging about it
Oddly enough reza pahlavi has only posted on facebook a statement expressing solidarity with the protesters, but him doing so only on facebook demonstrates he knows they can easily fail and this is not a people's uprising rather people rioting because they are incited to
These riots are clearly being done to soften up Iran for invasion, for rajavi is no different from jomhori mollah, and reza pahlavi has no idea how to manage any government. If you want a free and strong Iran get behind ME.
Recently the farhang foundation has initiated a fundraising drive for new Iranian studies programs at the university of southern california, the details of which can be seen at the link below
Seeing that the razi's cash pissing at ucla has yielded marginal results, as have farhang's involvement at stanford as mirzakhani's death this year demonstrates farhang's fundraising will have a marginal effect. Furthermore, if farhang wanted to do something positive for the Iranian and academic community they would have handled the ahreeman x matter at san diego state university instead of allowing that provacetur to menace the Iranian community.
Additionally one needs to look at the state of Iranian studies in america, for it is clear that what is most decisive are experts and proper presentation, not major cash donors. That is why academic institutions like brown, harvard, mit, boston college, yale, columbia, georgetown and other major academic institutions have seen a decline in the quality of scholarship in Iranian studies.
If farhang or anyone wanting to do Iranian studies respectfully they need to take the example of Quinnipiac and Slater Bakhtavar's Persian Legal Society. if they will not do Iranian studies correctly then do not do them at all.
Recently dolce and gabbana decided to incorporate Imperial Iranian brass buttons in one of their clothing designs for 2017, which the farhang foundation leadership is excited about
I was informed of this when rudi bakhtiar shared this with me, as she and those excited over this forget that many in Iran's military use these buttons as a way of demonstrating their Soltani Talab loyalties, and these buttons are so scarce that they are seen as trophies by those who hate Iran, which I make clear in my response to her on facebook
My reply to rudi goes to all Iranians who would sell out their heritage. I have several of those buttons which are NOT for sale, and many are on two jackets which have been through a lot with me, and anyone who wants to become hajjibaba is more than welcome to clean and maintain them.
After last year's high octane Yalda/Winter Solstice event at the Newport Tower I returned this year, particularly as many people I knew were experiencing oddness around this time of year, including Newport Tower museum director Jim Egan recently had a bad fall I was concerned for my safety and that of his and others.
I arrived for the first alignment around 7:30 AM EST and now only was there a sizeable crowd but many were allowed inside the Tower shortly before the first alignment occured
This year both alignments were earlier than usual, and the morning alignment was shorter and less noticeable than last year. During the second alignment I was inside the tower as the sun struck the keystone
Whoever built this knew that the alignments would occur on and around this time and not only compensated for the dates but the timing during the day.
Interestingly Scott Wolter and Jim Egan were right about many facts regarding the history of the Tower, while both and others there were interested in my mentioning the possibility that John Dee might have been able to biolocate.
I learned hours ago that Regele Mihai of Romania died in exile in switzerland on December 5, and hours ago his body was brought to Pelesh Castle in Romania for lying in state preceding his state funeral
He was forced by romanian communists led by petru groza at gunpoint to leave Romania and spent decades doing menial work, before being allowed to return to Romania after caeucescu and the communists were deposed in 1990, sadly he was never restored to his throne.
In his last decade I kept up a correspondence with Mihai. He was impressed by my locating Royal Romanian Silver coins of his reign thought to be lost, and liked stories about my father's mother who was born in Transylvania.
As I can not attend the funeral I am sharing condolences here, a good friend is gone.
While it is understandable for time magazine to pick those who grab news headlines as their person of the year choice, they need to remember that some of those they chose are despicable as well as newsworthy, which must be emphasized with those who made accusations of sexual harassment.
I must single out taylor swift here, for not only were her sexual harassment claims based on hearsay, she was responsible for railroading innocent people on trespassing and stalking charges and using her staff to intimidate people since she moved into my old neighborhood of Watch Hill while causing permanent damage to the environment, yet the media would rather focus on sexual harassment claims from her whether they are true or not.
Interestingly rudi bakhtiar is trying to sneak on the list complaining her coming out last year makes her inclusive
At least I have the arraignment and police reports from when I was arrested at occupy on columbus day and took action for the right reasons, and the staff and inmates were touched to be in with someone on time's person of the year list. This choice is degrading I wonder how many will feel about this choice in a few years.
This weekend a memorial was held in washington dc at the national mall for Bijan Ghaisar, who was shot on November 17 by federal park pigs who panicked. On that date Bijan Ghaisar had an accident and when he saw police vehicles arriving panicked and fled, and one of the pigs made a killshot to his head because he supposedly could not find spike strips to use on him and he died ten days later of his wound.
Even more tragic is the fact that niac has been using his death for publicity purposes, and my comment on their facebook page sums up the angst
Iranians in america have over the past century been subject to repeated brutality and humiliation as I can personally attest to. The only thing setting Bijan Ghaisar apart from the rest of us is the proportion of media attention he is getting. Were it not for the recent squabbles the memorial would have been larger, more focused on maltreatment Iranians have suffered in america, and less about promoting political agendas which are jendas.
Just as alarming is how facebook has chosen to leave his personal page as a memorial, which can be seen below
Many Iranians have had their pages pulled by facebook for trivial purposes, and this memorial page is oversimplified as to Bijan Ghaisar.
This Sunday Boston's Shahnameh group will be hosting their monthly event with a reading of "Zaal and Rudabeh" at the same time that rudi bakhtiar's sister usually holds her language classes, but which she stopped holding last month
Despite the fact that I only shared the private messages I got from rudi online with my cousin who took care of her in Iran, since October every time I go to the Boston area people there pester me about rudi. That same cousin of mine was the one that noticed the odd reactions in the messages after October whenever rudi's sister and niece were mentioned, and that same cousin is the one who started the Wednesday meal program at the same place the Shahnameh event is being held six years ago which rudi's sister and niece have attended every time, as they are hard up and rudi barely assists them despite the fact that the money she spent attending events hosted by farhang could have been used to feed her sister and niece for two years.
To say rudi admitting her crush on me and our family connection to this place did not influence this would be an understatement, as I have a feeling they will be talking about more than Ferdowsi there.
Last night I attended shadi ghaheri's production of bahram beyzai's Marg Yazdegird at Yale's drama school, which was brought to my attention by colleagues at Yale
The story as told by beyzai bowlderlizes a critical point in Iran's history, specifically the killing of Yazdegird III and muslim invasion of Iran. Rather than portraying this incident respectfully Iran's heritage is mocked.
Both shadi and bahram could have done something uplifting, but instead they joined the mass of fuzel bacheha in america by debasing their heritage and exemplify why Yale degenerated.
Recently the documents from my Zoroastrian religious discrimination suit which the government claimed were missing from the first circuit and Federal District for rhode island were recovered by the free law project. You can see the timeline of the case at the District and Appellate level below
You can see the final disposition of the case in the US Supreme Court at the link below, however none of the documents or schedules are provided
This is important as it my case was the first time a Zoroastrian sued for deprivation of rights, and the arrests which prompted the case involved attempts to prevent me from selling two books I had published. Additionally when I contacted the fbi when charges by the department I was suing in this case were brought against me in an attempt to intimidate me from bringing the case to the US Supreme Court they told me they would only investigate if I was found Not Guilty. When I returned with the Not Guilty verdicts eight months after the US Supreme Court dismissed the case they refused to investigate nor would the US Supreme Court allow Petition for Writ of Certiorai to be filed on my behalf.
Earlier today michael flynn pleaded guilty to lying to the fbi regarding his dealings with the Russians before Judge rudolph contreras. Though he has yet to be sentenced, mueller and other treasury agents are determining how to proceed regarding those flynn had contact with when holding official government positions, as those I contacted earlier today have been too busy to handle other matters.
While this is a victory for the Iranian community, it is nothing to celebrate as flynn's dealings with Iranians left some mark on all he dealt with fucking up an already fucked up Iranian community in america, and we need to ask who will be next and if we will heal.
The only good thing I can report is that my Yalda event at the Newport Tower I am to attend this year on Yalda is still on, however some Soltani Talab and peshmerga who provided me with the location of flynn's residence are being menaced.
