    Crunching the numbers of Iran’s presidential election 

    Iran Commentary

    The presidential election in Iran is over, and Hassan Rouhani has been selected to a second term.  Already there are strong allegations of fraud and vote-rigging, especially from the camp loyal to Iranian supreme leader Ali Khamenei.

    The vote-rigging industry in Iran under the mullahs’ rule has been a very long-lasting practice.  One of the most common methods is simply to multiply the true number of all the votes for all candidates, to legitimize the collective process for the better good of the entire regime apparatus.

    The mullahs are also known to print a large number of voting slips, far more than enough, and place them in ballot boxes at a variety of pit stops.  This is, again, aimed at depicting a canvas of very large voter participation.

    The most important example was unveiled by former prime minister Mir Hossein Mousavi in 2009, when he said the Interior Ministry had…

    How Is Iran’s Hassan Rouhani A Moderate? 

    No2Rouhani-21

    Iran Commentary

    Following the May 19th presidential “election” in Iran and the incumbent Hassan Rouhani reaching a second term, there was an outpouring of Western mainstream media describing him as a moderate again.

    As described by the National Review, Iran’s sham election was nothing but “a ridiculous farce. In reality, an anti-American jihadist beat a slightly-worse anti-American jihadist.”

    Rouhani was the first Iranian regime official in the early days after the mullahs’ hijacking of the 1979 revolution who openly called for public executions.

    During Rouhani’s first tenure (owing it to the ultraconservative Guardian Council, a 12-cleric body appointed directly and indirectly by Iranian Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei, that vets candidates of all elections in Iran), the regime in Iran:

    Iran: Young woman arrested in Tehran stadium just 1 week after election 

    Young Iranian woman disguising herself as a man

    By Iran Probe Staff

    Security forces in Tehran’s Azadi Stadium arrested a young woman on Monday who had entered the facility disguising herself as a young man. The stadium was hosting a match between Tehran’s Esteghlal and the UAE’s al-Ein football teams.

    During Iran’s presidential election campaign the faction affiliated to President Hassan Rouhani had allowed young women in large numbers into the stadiums for their meetings and promising to lift the ban on allowing women into sports stadiums.

    During a Rouhani campaign event a young woman had raised a placard written, “Can I come to the stadium after the election?” The answer was provided in less than a week, proving Rouhani had resorted to deceptive measures merely for election purposes.

    Young woman’s placard reads: Can I also come to the stadium after the election?

    Iran’s Ballot Boxes Do Not Represent The Voice Of Its People 

    Iran Liberty

    Here is my article posted on the Daily Caller

    Today Hassan Rouhani was announced as the winner of Iran’s presidential election. Of course, these ballot boxes do not represent the voice of the Iranian people but portray the result of a failed engineering campaign and a final decision made by Iranian Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei. This is also a show of his utter fear of a nationwide uprising against the mullahs’ apparatus.

    Iran election: Incumbent President Hassan Rouhani is no moderate 

    By Pardes Seleh

    by Pardes Seleh

    Washington Examiner, May 19, 2017–The mainstream media coverage of Friday’s Iranian presidential election is laughable. Progressives and allies of the Islamic Republic eager to see diplomatic progress are jumping on the notion that Iran is having her first truly ‘democratic’ election.

    The excitement seems to be that now, after a long time, Iranians will have their pick of presidential candidates. Associated Press is calling it a race between ‘hardliners’ such as cleric Ebrahim Raisi and a ‘moderate,’ current President Hassan Rouhani . CNN is going so far as to call Rouhani an ‘outsider’ who ‘seeks to liberalize the country.’ Even the typically skeptical Fox News is calling Rouhani a moderate. But is he, really?

    In reality, Rouhani is no moderate. Sure, he identifies as such and he promises grand reforms such as economic freedom and an end to human rights violations in Iran. Oh, and he promised to free political prisoners. But he hasn’t carried through on a single one of his promises, nor does he show any evidence of planning to.

    The Wall Street Journal published a piece claiming Rouhani ‘appears to have given up’ on his reform promises over his past term. But there is no reason to believe those promises were genuine in the first place.

    Rouhani is conveniently a puppet of a theocratic regime that seeks to maintain its power by telling people what they want to hear. ‘We’re a democracy.’ ‘We want to improve women’s rights.’ ‘We are curbing our ballistic missile program.’ We accept it, either because we are too naive to know better or because we don’t want to acknowledge the growing cancer that is the fundamentalist regime.

    ‘We all can together with unity and calm and with the help of the exalted Leader, whose hand I am willing to kiss dozens of times,’ he announced days ago in Tabriz, pledging loyalty to Iranian Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei.

    Khamenei, who formally endorsed Rouhani in his last term, was the first to cast his ballot this morning. Other prominent figures within the Islamic Republic, such as former president Mohammad Khatami, endorsed Rouhani as well.

    The media and some politicians may be sold on the idea of Friday’s election being ‘democratic,’ but policy experts and Iranian civilians are telling a different story.
    Sohrab Ahmari offers a piece of advice to Iranian citizens who are sick of political charades: ‘Don’t vote.’ The mullahs have their own plan for the people, and participating in an election that doesn’t count only stupefies any concept of free will.

    ‘Why should the Iranian people jump from the frying pan into the fire? The people of Iran reject the turban, whether it is white or black. No solution exists within the ruling religious dictatorship. The velayat-e faqih regime must be overthrown in its entirety,’ says Maryam Rajavi , the leader of the Paris-based National Council of Resistance of Iran, an opposition movement whose members were known for mysteriously disappearing under the theocratic regime.

    The mainstream media, on the other hand, needs to get its head out of the sand. We need to stop projecting our naivete on a corrupt regime that has no intention of changing.

    Rouhani’s 2nd Term Deepens Rift Within the Regime, Intensifies Mullahs’ Crisis and Power Struggle 

    Rouhani's 2nd Term Deepens Rift Within the Regime

    • Khamenei’s heavy defeat in manipulating election is an indication of an end to the regime
    • Crisis at the top of the religious fascism will continue until its downfall
    • Rouhani neither wants, nor is able to alter regime’s foundations and behavior; massive economic and social destruction, crackdown and repression will persist

    NCRI – Mrs. Maryam Rajavi, President-elect of the National Council of Resistance of Iran, described the mullahs’ regime at the end of its sham presidential election, as a divided regime that has been gravely weakened by its internal power struggle. She added: Rouhani’s second term would only entail growing crisis and a more intense power struggle. Crisis has precipitated at the leadership level of the religious fascism and would continue until the downfall of the regime of the velayat-e faqih (absolute rule of clergy). The heightening power struggle is a reflection of the regime’s strategic failure in resolving the most pressing social problems and growing discontent.

    Mrs. Rajavi said: In the current critical domestic, regional and international circumstances, for Khamenei it is crucial to make the medieval regime monolithic in order to face the crises and maintain the regime’s balance. Therefore, Khamenei’s failure to manipulate the election result to bring Raisi out of the ballot box and make the regime monolithic is a heavy blow for him and a sign of the regime’s approaching demise. The election campaign this time attracted greater public attention to the 1988 massacre of political prisoners right from the beginning. Public outrage against Raisi over his role in the massacre and the regime’s fear of the campaign which seeks justice for the victims reached an extent that many clerics and even powerful figures within Khamenei’s faction were not prepared to support Raisi.
