Neocon Says Obama Should Save Presidency By Attacking Iran

Compares notion of Obama bombing Iran to political impact of 9/11

A Neoconservative commentator and scholar has stated that Obama can save his presidency and turn around his plummeting approval ratings by bombing Iran.

Pro-war fanatic Daniel Pipes, has penned a despicable piece on conservative website National Review Online, calling for preemptive airstrikes on Iran’s nuclear facilities.

“Here is an idea for Barack Obama to salvage his tottering administration by taking a step that protects the United States and its allies,” Pipes writes.

“He needs a dramatic gesture to change the public perception of him as a light-weight, bumbling ideologue, preferably in an arena where the stakes are high, where he can take charge, and where he can trump expectations.”

“Such an opportunity does exist,” Pipes adds. “Obama can give orders for the U.S. military to destroy Iran’s nuclear-weapon capacity.”

“Just as 9/11 caused voters to forget George W. Bush’s meandering early months, a strike on Iranian facilities would dispatch Obama’s feckless first year down the memory hole and transform the domestic political scene,” he continues.

“It would sideline health care,’ he continues, “prompt Republicans to work with Democrats, make netroots squeal, independents reconsider, and conservatives swoon.” Pipes states.

Pipes was a staunch supporter of the Vietnam war and a strong advocate for the invasion of Iraq. He is also supports Israel in the Arab-Israeli conflict and is completely opposed to any form of Palestinian state.

Despite this, Pipes, who rejects the term “neocon”, referring to himself as “plain conservative”, was nominated to the board of the United States Institute of Peace by George W. Bush in 2003.

He is also the head of a think tank named the Middle East Forum, and its website Campus Watch, which has been fiercely criticized as anti-Islamic. Campus Watch was also accused of “McCarthyesque intimidation” of professors who criticized Israel when it published “dossiers” on eight professors it thought “hostile” to America.

With regards to Iran, Pipes has advocated that the U.S. “unleash” the right-wing terrorist organization Mujahedeen-e Khalq (MEK) against Iran. It is well known that that MEK has direct ties to the CIA, and there is already evidence relating to use of the group against Iran in covert operations.

Pipes occupies a long list of neocon policy wonks and academics who share the same fetish for more war and more terrorism in the name of “uniting the country”, seemingly unphased by the complete ignorance of their comments and the depth of their depravity.

The past few days have seen an intensification in rhetoric regarding the geopolitical situation in the Persian Gulf. Last week Obama warned Iran of “growing consequences” with reference to the country’s nuclear ambitions.

The Iranian government then stated that the nation will deliver a harsh blow to “global arrogance” on February 11th, the anniversary of the Islamic Revolution.

The U.S. has retaliated to what it sees as Iran’s growing missile threat by deploying a land and sea-based missile shield to protect American allies in the Gulf, according to administration officials.

Iran’s government responded by calling the deployment a “puppet show”, adding that it represents “nothing except a new political ploy to increase the [American] military presence at the expense of others.”

Support #altnews & keep Dark Politricks alive

Remember I told you over 5 years ago that they would be trying to shut down sites and YouTube channels that are not promoting the "Official" view. Well it's happening big time. Peoples Channels get no money from YouTube any more and Google is being fishy with their AdSense giving money for some clicks but not others. The time is here, it's not "Obama's Internet Cut Off Switch" it's "Trumps Sell Everyones Internet Dirty Laundry Garage Sale".

It's not just Google/YouTube defunding altenative chanels (mine was shut), but Facebook is also removing content, shutting pages, profiles and groups and removing funds from #altnews that way as well. I was recently kicked off FB and had a page "unpublished" with no reason given. If you don't know already all Facebooks Private Messages and Secret Groups are still analysed and checked for words related to drugs, sex, war etc against their own TOS. Personally IU know there are undercover Irish police moving from group to group cloning peoples accounts and getting people booted. Worse than that I know people in court at the moment for the content they had on their secret private group. Use Telegrams secret chat mode to chat on, or if you prefer if you need to or buy a dumb phone with nothing for the NSA to hack into if you are that paranoid.

So if your not supporting this site already which brings you news from the Left to the Right (really the same war mongering bollox) then I could do with some. Even if it's just £5 or tick the monthly subscription box it will be much appreciated. Read on to find out why/


Any support to keep this site would be appreciated. You could set up a monthly subscription for £2 like some people do or you could pay a one off donation as a gift.
I am not asking you to pay me for other people's articles, this is a clearing house as well as place to put my own views out into the world. I am asking for help to write more articles like my recent
false flag gas attack to get WWIII started in Syria, and Trump away from Putin. Hopefully a few missiles won't mean a WikiLeaks release of that infamous video Trump apparently made in a Russian bedroom with Prostitutes. Also please note that this article was written just an hour after the papers came out, and I always come back and update them.

If you want to read JUST my own articles then use the top menu I have written hundreds of articles for this site and I host numerous amounts of material that has seen me the victim of hacks, DOS plus I have been kicked off multiple hosting companies, free blogging sites, and I have even had threats to cease and desist from the US armed forces. Therefore I have to pay for my own server which is NOT cheap. The more people who read these article on this site the more it costs me so some support would be much appreciated.

I have backups of removed reports shown, then taken down after pressure, that show collusion between nations and the media. I have the full redacted 28/29 pages from the 9.11 commission on the site which seems to have been forgotten about as we help Saudi Arabia bomb Yemeni kids hiding in the rubble with white phosphorus, an illegal weaapon. One that the Israeli's even used when they bombed the UN compound in Gaza during Operation Cast Lead. We complain about Syrian troops (US Controlled ISIS) using chemical weapons to kill "beautiful babies". I suppose all those babies we kill in Iraq, Yemen, Somalia and Syria are just not beautiful enough for Trumps beautiful baby ratio. Plus we kill about 100 times as many as ISIS or the Syrian army have managed by a factor of about 1000 to 1.

I also have a backup of the FOX News series that looked into Israeli connections to 9.11. Obviously FOX removed that as soon as AIPAC, ADL and the rest of the Hasbra brigade protested.

I also have a copy of the the original Liberal Democrats Freedom Bill which was quickly and quietly removed from their site once they enacted and replaced with some watered down rubbish instead once they got into power. No change to police tactics, protesting or our unfair extradition treaty with the USA but we did get a stop to being clamped on private land instead of the mny great ideas in the original.

So ANY support to keep this site running would be much appreciated! I don't have much money after leaving my job and it is a choice between shutting the server or selling the domain or paying a lot of money just so I can show this material. Material like the FSB Bombings that put Putin in power or the Google no 1 spot when you search for protecting yourself from UK Police with "how to give a no comment interview". If you see any adverts that interest you then please visit them as it helps me without you even needing to give me any money. A few clicks per visit is all it takes to help keep the servers running and #altnews alive!

However if you don't want to use the very obvious and cost free ways (to you) to help the site and keep me writing for it then please consider making a small donation. Especially if you have a few quid sitting in your PayPal account doing nothing useful. Why not do a monthly subscription for less money instead. Will you really notice £5 a month?
