Zogby International: Most Arab Countries View US Less Favorably Than at End of Bush Administration

By Doug Powers  •  July 13, 2011 04:08 PM

**Written by Doug Powers This is no surprise, because the “elect me and the world will love us” rhetoric from 2008 was an illusion from the start, but some may be surprised to learn that not only is US popularity in most Arab countries plummeting, but it’s actually falling lower than when Bush was president: […]

Aww: US State Department Tweets Birthday Greetings to Ahmadinejad

By Doug Powers  •  October 30, 2010 09:47 AM

**Written by Doug Powers Hillary Clinton’s State Department is getting tough on Iran, as U.S. Assistant Secretary of State for Public Affairs Philip Crowley demonstrates: If that doesn’t convince Mahmoud, the State Department’s Teddy-Gram with the “Bear-hugs for you if you start being nicer” note should do the trick. This is being reported as a […]

By Michelle Malkin  •  September 23, 2010 04:28 PM

Via Mediaite and RCP, the U.S. delegation walked out on Ahmadinejad’s address to the U.N. Assembly in New York this afternoon after he pushed the 9/11 Truther button: Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad spoke to the United Nations General Assembly this afternoon, sharing some rather provocative rhetoric over the United States worst terrorist attack in history.

The crackdown in Iran

By Michelle Malkin  •  December 29, 2009 10:31 AM

The Guardian details the latest on the new wave of arrests in Iran amid another round of regime complaints that the homegrown protests are Western-fomented: Authorities in Iran intensified their drive to snuff out the opposition movement overnight by arresting the relatives of prominent activists, including the sister of the Nobel laureate and human rights […]

#16Azar: Another Iranian crackdown on student protesters

By Michelle Malkin  •  December 7, 2009 02:47 AM

Here we go again. The Iranian mullahcracy has reportedly attempted to choke off the Internet and reportedlysurrounded Tehran University to stifle anti-Ahmadenijad student protesters today: The measures were aimed at depriving the opposition of its key means of mobilizing the masses as Iran’s clerical rulers keep a tight lid on dissent. Government opponents are seeking, […]

Obama administration cracks down on Iran-tied mosques, NYC property; Update: Alavi Foundation donates Korans to prison inmates

By Michelle Malkin  •  November 12, 2009 07:59 PM

Interesting. Not sure whether this is the Obama White House response to criticism that it has been soft on jihad, but the timing is noteworthy. (Okay, thought about it. Yes, I’m pretty sure it is p.r.-driven.) Continuing an investigation it — ahem — inherited from the Bush administration, Obama officials have moved to seize four […]

Obama hand-holds Huffington Post blogger, snaps at dissident reporters

By Michelle Malkin  •  June 23, 2009 01:28 PM

I noted on Twitter and in my live-blog of Obama’s press conference that the president called on/coached HuffPo’s Nico Pitney in an obvious, pre-planned question on Iranians communicating through social media and the Internet. The question itself was unobjectionable and Obama’s response was so bland and rambling I don’t remember it. But what was noteworthy […]

Obama-come-lately on Iran; O's obligatory press conference

By Michelle Malkin  •  June 23, 2009 11:43 AM

At around 12:30pm Eastern, Barack Obama will put down his ice cream cone and boldly condemn repression in Iran. Why now? Andrew Malcolm explains the timing: You don’t need to be a basketball-loving president of the United States to know that if you’re trying to block opponents’ shots in your end, you sure aren’t increasing […]
