SATURDAY/SUNDAY Reports reaching us from islamic iran now indicate a wave of arrests has taken place creating a very "pregnant" situation where anything can still happen, though the arrests have taken out opposition leadership:
1. Former President Hashem Rafsanjani has been arrested and taken to be held at the house of Supreme Ruler Ali Khamenei, where he was forced to resign as the head of the Expediency Council and Council of Experts. He is being held there until further notice to be at the pleasure of the Supreme Ruler.
Rafsanjani not only spent money to oppose Ahmadi-Nejad's re-"selection" but also made a big mistake of threatening the Supreme Ruler with the fact that the councils headed by Rafsanjani were the ones who had to declare the eligibility of the Supreme Ruler and could remove him from office with a quick vote.
He is not expected to emerge alive from his detention.

Lots of graphics and link to several videos
I’ve been reading various new accounts for an hour now- it seems the young people of Iran are enraged over the cheating in the election. Interesting updates from Twitter here: http://www.reddit.com/r/reddit.com/comments/8sbor/twitterers_posting_from_inside_iran/
Sounds like all hell is breaking loose there.
Michael Totten has some amazing videos here:
The on in his own mind.
The muzzies are always enraged about something or other.
I wish white American taxpayers would get enraged about something.
Frankly, I don’t mind if they off that pig Rafsanjani. He is a mullah crook himself.
The situation has to reach eventually the point (I’ll give it some time though) that the regime is opposed, not just the current cabinet.
Down with Ahmadinejad and the islamic regime!!!
IMO Twitter has the best coverage with lots of links to other breaking news and commentary.
Unfortunately Tehran has severed all telecomm (including domestic?) and Internet (definitely including Twitter).
And a very popular bonus discussion of CNN’s trashy decision to totally ignore the Iran protests all day Saturday:
CNN sucking up to the mullahs just like they did in Iraq.
Gee, political opposition leaders in house, or worse, arrest within 24 hours of an election in Iran. Is this a new, groundbreaking precedent for countries who watch Iran closely and are “EXCITED” about the “democratic” process in IRAN to consider for implementation in their own countries in the future? Gee, lose an election in a democratic country and win a “Go to Jail” card? How PROGRESSIVE and innovative! What a CHANGE!
“I wish white American taxpayers would get enraged about something.”
If Obama banned American Idol, he would be out of office in a week, due to mass rage by the sheeple.
Thank you George W and the American Military for the strategic decision to help the Iraqi people to establish a democracy that will spread throughout the region.
The biggest nightmare to the left in America:
The violent overthrow of the mullah theocracy in Iran accompanied by freedom fighters holding pictures of W and calling him the father of a new Iranian democratic rule!
CNN will notice and report on the following:
One Republican trashing another Republican
Five Gay Men Protesting anything
Six Members of NOW complaining about any conservative
Eight Blacks angry with cops
Thirty Union Members picketing a company
Here's the groups that "don't make the CNN cut":
1,000 democrats criticizing one corrupt democrat
400,000 tea party protesters
A million Iranians bravely standing up to their oppressors.
You can monitor twittes as they come in at
Click on “tehran” or “iranelections” on the sidebar. 95% of the twittwrs will be comments by people outside of Iran, (lots of repetitions), but it’s also where new stuff from inside Iran pops up.
Sounds like Iran’s Tianamen Square to me. So-called “reformers” and real dissidents will be rounded up and eliminated one way or another, followed by “nothing to see here” by the mullahs who really run things. Meanwhile, Obama won’t lift a finger.
A ‘General Strike’ would be the best weapon now.
I imagine that a “general strike” has been ongoing for decades. But people have to eat.

In Cairo, Obama pledged strict neutraliity between freedom and slavery.
Greenlight for A-jad.
