A letter from the former President of Iran, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, in 2017:

IRAN EX-PRESIDENT’S FULL LETTER TO PRESIDENT TRUMP

In the name of God, The Compassionate, The Merciful

… To: His Excellency, Mr. Donald John Trump

The president of the United States of America

Greetings,

… 8- The developments and the current existence of America today is the result of immigration of a variety of nations to that land. The presence and constructive effort of the elite and scientists of different nations, including the million-plus population of my Iranian compatriots has had a major role in the development of the US. It is necessary that the spirit of the policies ruling the US, value respect toward the diversity of nations and races. In other words, the contemporary US belongs to all nations, including the natives of the land. No one may consider themselves the owner, and view others as guests or immigrants.

… And peace on the righteous servants of God

Mahmoud Ahmadinejad

In service of the Iranian nation

Source: Fars News Agency

Interesting question: Who is closer to the American Establishment’s conventional wisdom on “Who are the owners of America?”

Trump or Ahmadinejad?

And here’s the late Col. Muammer Gadafphee’s similarly mainstream (and presciently gender-neutral) take on the question of “Who Is the America?”

America is not only for the whites, but it is for all. Who is the America? The American is you, me, and that. When we go to America we will become Americans and there is no a race or nationalism called America and the Americans are those Africans, Indians, Chinese, and Europeans and whoever goes to America will become American…. American is for all of us and the whole world had made and created America. All the people all over the world had made America and it shall accordingly be for all of us.

    One area where Muslims agree with Jews at least in rhetoric.

    But on closer inspection, something else is up..

    Three Americas:

    1. White-owned nation.

    2. Jewish-owned nation.

    3. World-owned nation.

    Preferably, it should be #1, but that America is fading fast.

    So, that leaves #2 and #3.

    Currently, the US is #2 pretending to be #3.

    A true case of #3 is preferable to #2 because it is more fair and just. If the US insists on being a World Power, it should belong to the world as it meddles with every nation. It should not speak about the world while serving the Tribe. Current US preaches human rights for all mankind while doing the narrow supremacist bidding of Zionists.

    Trump implicitly won over white support by selling #1, but his administration is the continuation of #2.

    Trumpers dream of #1 but must make do with #2.
    Progs pontificate about #3 but end up serving #2.

    So, when Gaddy and Admani say the US should belong to the world, they are really saying the US shouldn’t just belong to Jews. Stupid whites handed their nation to the Jews as new masters.

    Just ask the Palestinians.

    Muslims are eager for the US to belong to the world because they got burned so badly by the US belonging to Jews.

    “We should insist that if the immigrant who comes here does in good faith become an American and assimilates himself to us he shall be treated on an exact equality with every one else, for it is an outrage to discriminate against any such man because of creed or birth-place or origin.

    But this is predicated upon the man’s becoming in very fact an American and nothing but an American. If he tries to keep segregated with men of his own origin and separated from the rest of America, then he isn’t doing his part as an American. There can be no divided allegiance here…

    We have room for but one language here, and that is the English language, for we intend to see that the crucible turns our people out as Americans, of American nationality, and not as dwellers in a polyglot boarding-house; and we have room for but one soul loyalty, and that is loyalty to the American people.”

    I suspect that the Zeituni/Ahmadinejad/Qaddafi view of US sovereignty (i.e., US actually belongs to all of us because reasons) is the majority view in the third world. Of course we are encouraging the false doctrine with multiculturalism at home and universalism and interventionism abroad.

    So just like the Elite+Underclass hi-lo domestic vertical attack on the heritage American middle, there is an Inside Beltway + Outer Fringes near-far global horizontal attack on heritage American nationality. But you already know this.

    Those Mohammedans understand how to keep America on the path of suicide.

    Muslims, especially those targeted by Zionists, are one people who have every reason and justification to desire a US that is owned by the world. These people were minding their own business and trying to form their own nations. But US installed the Shah in Iran. US aided in the destruction of Palestine and has continued Zionist erasure of remaining Palestinian areas. US has worked with the Saudis to spread terrorism and mess up entire nations, culminating in Obama’s ruination of Liyba, Syria, and Yemen. When the US does the bidding of Jewish tribalists who destroy entire nations and when white Americans do nothing to resist this madness or blindly go along, the world would be a better place if the US sank into the ocean or if really did belong to the world. If the US belonged to Muslims(and others) as well as to Jews, at the very least it would do far less harm around the world. If Iranian-Americans, Palestinian-Americans, and Muslim-Americans were as powerful as Jewish-Americans — if the US belong as much to them as to Jews — , then, at the very least, the US would not be able to push for Wars for Israel that have been the greatest crimes of the 21st century. Jewish power in the US would be balanced by Muslim power.

    The only way the US has a right to remain a distinct and autonomous nation is by minding its own affairs and respecting the sovereignty of other nations. But if the US must be a world power telling others what to do, then there is no reason why the US should be ruled by Jews only. It should be owned and ruled by peoples from all over the world. And all those whites who failed to resist the New World Order have no right to complain. They let their elites invade and ruin other nations. What goes around, comes around.

    Looking back to the moment right after the Cold War, it now seems Ross Perot was right about the most important things.

    Then what exactly are these guys in the military fighting and dying for? A paycheck?

    Why not? Many soldiers in the past have done just that, from Roman legionnaires to medieval English bowmen to Renaissance-era Swiss pikemen and German Landsknechts.

    One of the most serious problems in the horrific 30 Years’ War was that the combatants were mostly mercenaries who were in it for the pay and plunder, and who therefore were not especially interested in applying Just War Theory to carefully distinguish legitimate military targets from innocent civilians.

    But there’s little indication that mercenaries were hesitant to fight at the risk of their lives. There are examples of mercenary armies pushing for battle even though their side was at an obvious disadvantage. They wanted to get it over with, get paid, and go home for a while.

    Definitely sad if true, but it would be interesting to know how much of his story is true(God knows you can’t rely on the CBC to do any fact-checking these days). He says he’s been living there for a year.

    For one thing, despite the fact that Winnipeg isn’t actually that far south, it gets seriously cold in the winter. The average low in January is -21 Celsius(or -6.5 Fahrenheit) and most winters would get down around -31 Fahrenheit for a few nights. The article and picture suggests that the hut is built into a ravine or ditch, which would provide some shelter against the howling prairie winds, but that leads us to potential problem number two:

    Southern Manitoba tends to have flooding problems in the spring. I’m not familiar with that particular area, but creek beds usually swell a fair amount during the thaw, and Winnipeg has a lot of infrastructure designed to direct waters away from built up areas and into the sorts of place where that shack is built.

    It also brings up questions about how he got into Canada in the first place. The article only mentions sponsors, which suggests that he wasn’t part of the economic immigrant pathway(the much lauded “selective” immigration pathway that only accounts for about 1 in 4 immigrants to Canada).

    Was he part of the family reunification scheme? The temporary foreign workers scheme? There was also the rather notorious live-in caregiver scheme from around the time period he arrived which was later scrapped because it was dysfunctional even by the standards of government programs. This was meant to bring mainly Filipino women to act as caregivers, but the Filipino community in Canada scammed it to bring in relatives, many employers used the lack of mobility to abuse their maids, and the government was constantly switching the goalposts regarding which Filipino credentials would be recognized. It also led to large numbers of Filipino mothers leaving their young families, joining the program and staying in Canada for over a decade until they could bring over their children, who by that time were in their mid teens. As a result, the Toronto school boards found themselves with Filipino 16-17 year olds who showed up for the end of high school with no experience being educated in English. Not surprisingly, their graduation rates weren’t great, which the local liberal media then blamed on Toronto’s notoriously liberal teachers.

    It would also be very interesting to know the demographics of Winnipeg’s public housing and homeless shelters. If they’re anything like the ones in Toronto and Montreal, they’re probably filled to the brim with border-hopping Africans via the US, or Somalis who keep having children regardless of whether they can support them. Plus the usual First Nations contingent, who should get first dibs by virtue of being indigenous and trying to get off the reserves.

  47. There was a 3 decade immigration ban after the Red Scare [1] of 1917 and following years.

    The first Red Scare was apparently started by the Bolshevik takeover of what had been Imperial Russia, and was intensified by various domestic activities, to include raids, extensive deportations, bombing Wall Street, the Nicola Sacco and Bartolomeo Vanzetti case, various riots, etc.

    Apparently, this was enough to scare the US ruling class that it might be next after the Czar, immigration was stopped, and that gave the US enough unity to survive WW II.

    The second Red Scare came about in the 1950s when it was realized just how much the USSR/Communists had infiltrated American government [2,3,4] even after immigration had been stopped. The second Red Scare was justified according to Soviet archives after 1990, but yielded no legislation; in particular, it did not stop the resumption of immigration in the late 1960s.

    In summary, immigration from 1890 onwards established various American resident groups that wanted to change the basis of American government and population composition. The first Red Scare slowed down, but did not stop, these groups from actually changing American government, which proved incapable of reaching a stable agreeement with these groups (or the USSR) and was gradually transformed into a near twin of the USSR during the Cold War. The US gradually transformed itself in to a near war economy, and the USSR tried, but failed, to transform itself _from_ a war economy into an autarkic production economy. At present, the US war economy is becoming unstable (as had the USSR’s economy) and a reorganization of the US can be expected.

    So:
    Cutting off immigration and widespread deportation of hostiles has been done before in the US. The US population doesn’t like open borders or further immigration, and doesn’t really care what US propaganda and Hollywood films said about the subject.
    If Iran thinks the US belongs to it (and the world), well, that’s a conflict, but that’s all it is. It’s a small thing compared to US internal difficulties.

    One could make as good a case as Mahmoud Ahmadinejad’s that Iran belongs to the US, and, in fact, such a case was for Iraqi before the invasion. One learns to disregard the plausible lies.

    Someone buy this guy a ticket home. He seems nice, and is the first to admit his coming to Canada was a mistake.

    Interesting fact: Canada sometimes pays illegals to go home. Back of the envelope: $5,000 to 10 million people would only be $50 billion. Combined with assistance with moving and the like, this might be enough to get rid of a big chunk of illegals if there were a credible threat of much worse stuff to follow, such as confiscation of assets and imprisonment.

    Of course, we would need a wall and a computerized immigration system that would have all their retinal scans to make sure they don’t come back.

    Paying illegals, and maybe helping with job development, housing, and education in their home countries, would rub a lot of people the wrong way. That is its genius. It’s the classic Nixon in China move, completely throwing opponents off balance.

    As long as we make sure they are permanently ineligible for entry into the U.S. for any reason.

    Then they’ll point out that they have installed a fair number of stepin-fetchit shabbas goys in various positions. And if you know what’s good for you, you’ll behave just like them.

Maybe we half thought we could afford to be generous? Whatever the reason, it was the collective “we” Canadians and Americans who co-signed this blank cheque and threw it at the world’s feet. The fact that some of us were grumbling under our breath counts for nothing. We’re on the hook for this.

    Ironically, after inviting the world in, the word “we” means even less than it did when we started on this path, about fifty years ago.

    Of course, Ahmadinejad would never take that view with his own native homeland, or even suggest that Iran’s hydrocarbon reserves – its only real source of wealth – ‘belong to all humanity’. In fact they made a big show of kicking out BP – who developed the Iranian oil industry – from Iran.

    [Verse 1]
    Imagine there’s no heaven
    It’s easy if you try
    No hell below us
    Above us, only sky
    Imagine all the people living for today
    Ah

    Imagine there’s no countries
    It isn’t hard to do
    Nothing to kill or die for
    And no religion too
    Imagine all the people living life in peace

    But I’m not the only one
    I hope some day you’ll join us
    And the world will live as one

    [Verse 2]
    Imagine no possessions
    I wonder if you can
    No need for greed or hunger
    A brotherhood of man
    Imagine all the people sharing all the world
    You

    [Chorus]
    You may say I’m a dreamer

    This is true. Pakistani and other related Muslims all vote identical to Jews in the USA, UK, Europe – they vote for the most anti White Lib Leftist parties. Even among Arabs in America they have mostly put the Palestinian issue on the back burner or just given up on this issue. Saudi Arabia Israel and the American Jewish lobby are on the same side in everything that matters, both Saudi Arabia and Israel took ~ 0 Syrian war refugees, yet Israel – the Lib Leftist Jewish elite demanded that Germany, Sweden, Western Europe and the United States MUST accept virtual unlimited numbers of Muslim migrants. Saudi Arabia generously offered to build 200 + Mosques in Germany for these million plus Muslim migrants.

    The alliance between Saudi Arabia, Israel the Arab and Jewish diasporas is best symbolized by the sham marriage of Anthony Wiener (Sexting pervert dubbed to be NYC mayor) and Hillary Clinton’s Saudi Arab chief of staff – certainly a strong case for birth control.

    I have to disagree.

    Arabs and most all Muslims have traditionally been on the same side against Whites.

    Jews were expelled from Spain or forced to convert to Catholic Christianity under the Inquisition because Jews took the Muslim Arab Moor side against Whites, serving as the Muslim occupiers tax collectors, selling White girls in to sexual slavery, prostitution to Arab Muslim buyers.

  81. No. America was founded by white people of European descent. If it had been founded and created by everybody, as Ahmadinejad claims, the country from its inception would have been a mix of Third World and First World ideas. It is a First World country because of First World ideas that Europeans brought with them.

    It will cease to be a fully developed country once white people are replaced (genocide) through massive immigration and forced assimilation.

    Probably true. It also helps that Levantine ARabs are more likely to pass for Latins and vice versa. They have similar food which is olive oil ,pita and yoghurt based and aesthetics. What I find interesting that either

    a) Iberians are quite forgiving of the 700 year Arab rule over their countries
    b) They dont quite care
    c) Its not an important part of their consciousness
    d) They can distinguish between Maghrebinne Muslims(Arab or Amazigh) who were responsible for the subjugation of their motherland and the Levantine who had nothing to do with it.

    Regarding d) Mr. Osama Bin Laden had a bee in his bonnet regarding the loss of Andalus in 1492. Yemeni and Saudi clans led the siege in the 700s to Spain. Also Andalus is named not Spaniards but Vandals , the Germanic ruling dynasty at the time.

    The Shah’s father installed himself in Persia back in 1925. The evil Shah the liberals hate inherited from his father. The evil Shah appointed read that and learn the word appointed Mossadegh, a member of parliament as Prime Minister. Have you learned that word appointed yet. Here a phrase you need to learn, At Will employment or appointment. Mossadegh was never elected Prime Minister. He was elected a member of parliament by one small constituency. The Shah appointed him At Will Prime Minister in accordance of the constitution at the time and ancient custom

    There was no such office as elected Prime Minister in Iran at the time, only At Will Appointed by the Shah could be fired by the Shah at any time for any reason Prime Minister.

    The Shah hired him and could fire him at any time.

    Mossadegh’s motive was that his Mother was a Princess of the dynasty the Shah’s father overthrew in 1925. About 1/4 of Iran was still occupied by the Russians at the time as was part of Austria and half of Europe as Russia’s plunder after WW2. The Russian occupiers of 1/4 of Iran sponsored a big communist party with the object of not withdrawing from the part of Iran Russia occupied.
    Mossadegh figured he could recover the throne for his dynasty He was the figurehead in a very short revolt. That revolution was quickly put down.

    America did not install Mohammed Reza Pahlavi as Shah in the early 195os after the communist led revolt fronted by Prince Mossadegh. Mohammed Reza Pahlavi was installed Shah in 1941 by his father when the father abdicated.
    I know, I know, all the internet sources and all the liberal propaganda you’ve ever read claims
    Mossadegh was a” democratically elected Prime Minister” overthrown by the evil 👿 Americans who installed the Shah. He wasn’t.

    Mossadegh was democratically elected all right. By one parliamentary constituency to be their Member if Parliament. He was not elected by anyone other than voters in his one constituency. He wasn’t elected to be Prime Minister because there was no such office as elected Prime Minister in Iran at the time.

    It was an Appointed At Will office. The Prime Minister served at the pleasure of the Shah. The Shahs appointed Prime Ministers and could fire them at any time. Just like non contract non tenured employees all over the world can be hired and fired at Will.
    I know, I know, you will find thousands of erroneous statements all over the web claiming that Mossadegh was an elected Prime Minister He wasn’t. He was just elected Member of Parliament. No such office as elected Prime Minister in Iran at the time.

    And the evil Shah Mohammed Reza was installed by his father in 1941, not by the Americans in the early fifties after Prince Mossadegh’s failed revolution.

    Why do Americans believe the most obvious egregious anti American propaganda? Especially when it’s a blatant lie that Mossadegh was an elected instead of an Appointed At Will Prime Minister???????

    Lots of wrong information on the internet. Look up At Will Appointed employee.

    I understand your feelings of wanting to bomb, bomb Iran based on this dark, hairy dwarf demanding that the entire world be allowed to migrate to the USA.

    But, understand this is what our occupational government and media do and they do it all the time:

    They find some non Western, non White European American enemy who they sanction that it is OK for Red State White Americans to hate, to take out all their frustrations on open borders mass migration invasions, Black criminal anarchy, collapse of sanitation, education in places like LA, Baltimore – the lying press, controlled media gives the OK:

    “Look this ugly, Eye Ranian as** hol* hates America, he/they are trying to build atomic weapons to start another Holocaust, this guys Hitler. We can’t be like those gosh darn Liberals who won’t fight back, He’s another Hitler, we’re the leader of the free world and we ‘ve got to stop this Ahmadinejad like we stopped Hitler. The French are pussies, they never fight, it’s up to us”.

    If Ahmadinejad and Iran hadn’t also gone against Israel, did some Holocaust Revisionism, the lying press, fake news “American media” (yeah right) would have treated him great – the same as they treat that Somalian Islamist Congresswoman from Minnesota that spends her every waking minute insulting and threatening White Americans. It’s only when the cross the line and also insult Jews or go against Israel that there is a big problem.

    It’s amazing to me that this Neo Conservative war mongering propaganda still works so well with Red State White Americans, the American Religious Christian Right.

    Donald Trump got elected President because regular Americans wanted to end open borders migration invasions and bring home the troops from these never ending, counter productive Neo Conservative wars, adventures etc.

    Most of Red State White Americans have battle fatigue from these Neo Conservative wars, but they are still very receptive for the Lying Media to wave the American Flag, support the troops, Bomb Iran and all it takes is some war mongering propaganda music by the likes of Ted Nugent or Tobby Keith, Hank Williams Jr.

    Blacks, homosexuals/Lesbians and all kinds of migrants do block voting for their group. Chicago now has a Black Lesbian mayor, to replace the IDF veteran, son of Irgun terrorist Mayor Rahm Emannuel. Illinois has a Jewish governor. The Public Teachers union basically runs the city and state – Chicago Public Schools cost ~ $8 billion a year, average teacher salary is $70,000 a year – most all that $ money is divided up along tribal lines, mostly all Black, but also LGBT. Hispanics sort of got in to an alternative tribal school system of charter schools, but the Chicago Public Teachers union grabbed that one also.

    OK, say yeah – American big cities are reverting to late 1980s and everything most definitely is tribal, corrupt, indolent – huge armies of panhandlers, heroin addicts, people that eat, sleep and poop in the street. The predicted plagues of TB and bubonic plague may soon hit LA.

    The Arab Christians in Latin America you referenced are predominately Lebanese Maronite Christian Arabs – this international tribe behaves in identical ways as international Jewish communities. They arrive as merchants/kaufman often as very low end family pawn shop owners, family convenience store owners that work in the ‘hood. The Kaufman Jewish merchants were a staple in Weimar Germany and in 1920s-1940s New York City, North Eastern Cities.

    The Chaldean Arab merchants running convenience stores in food deserts in Detroit operate the same way – and these Arab/Jewish and also Korean merchants operating in ‘hoods are always hated by the unemployed locals.

    But once these Lebanese Arab merchants really “Make it” in Latin American countries, they become even more like Jews, they become “International” and have homes and businesses in many many places.

    Look at Carlos Slim a Lebanese Arab who somehow got the phone monopoly in Mexico, he was once the wealthiest man in the world and had luxury home in New York City and became the largest stock holder of the New York Times. Carlos Slim’s supposed Christian religion has done nothing, absolutely NOTHING to change the New York Times hyper Lib Leftist, anti White, cultural marxist slant – the NYT might as well be owned and completely operated by the Salsburg Family, Harvey Weinstein, CNN’s Jeff Zucker along with the ADL, SPLC and AIPAC
