The Strategic Implications of Iran's STD Epidemic 

By David P. Goldman

Cross-posted at the Middle East Forum

June 14, 2019 - San Francisco - PipeLineNews.org - In the 5th Century BC, the "Persian disease" noted by Hippocrates probably was bubonic plague; in 8th-century Japan, it meant the measles. Today it well might mean chlamydia. Standout levels of infertility among Iranian couples, a major cause of the country's falling birth rate, coincide with epidemic levels of sexually transmitted disease. Both reflect deep-seated social pathologies. Iran has become a country radically different from the vision of its theocratic rulers, with prevailing social pathologies quite at odds with the self-image of radical Islam.

Iran's fertility decline from about seven children per female in 1979 to just 1.6 in 2012 remains a conundrum to demographers. Never before in recorded history has the birth rate of a big country fallen so fast and so far. Iran's population is aging faster than that of any other country in the world. In 2050, 30% of its people will be over 60, the same ratio as in the United States but with a tenth of America's per capita GDP. I see no way to avoid a social catastrophe unique in human experience. Since I first drew attention to Iran's demographic implosion a decade ago , I have heard not one suggestion as to how Iran might avert this disaster, despite some belated efforts to raise the birth rate.

Iran was the first Muslim country to achieve mass literacy, thanks in large part to the Shah's Literacy Corps of the 1970s. Muslim total fertility rates correlate closely with female literacy rates: As soon as Muslim women have the means to make their own decisions, they reject traditional society and the fertility behavior associated with it.

But another factor is at work. Iran has the highest incidence of lifetime infertility of any country in the world, estimated at between 22% and 25% in separate Iranian government surveys . Roughly a quarter of Iranian couples, that is, are unable to bear children.

By comparison, lifetime infertility ranges from 11% in Europe and 15% in India. The Iranian data are more extensive than in most other countries because Iran's government has devoted enormous resources to finding explanations and remedies for its uniquely high infertility rate.

The lifetime infertility in selected countries: Iran (year of survey 2004-2005) 24.9%; Australia(1991-1993) 18.4%; Denmark (1995) 15.7%; Indian Kashmir (1997) 15.1%; UK (1988) 14.1%; France (1988) 12.2%; Europe (1991-1993) 11.3%; Norway (1985-1995) 6.6%.

One explanation for Iran's strikingly infertility rate is the high level of consanguineous (cousin) marriages, that is, inbreeding. Azadeh Noaveni writes:

Iran, like other Middle Eastern countries, has an extremely high infertility rate. More than 20 percent of Iranian couples cannot conceive, according to a study conducted by one of the country's leading fertility clinics, compared with the global rate of between 8 and 12 percent. Experts believe this is due to the prevalence of consanguineous marriages, or those between cousins. Male infertility is "the hidden story of the Middle East," says Marcia Inhorn, a Yale University medical anthropologist and a specialist on assisted reproduction in the region.

This surmise probably is wrong. Iran's rate of cousin marriage is about 25%, lower than most of the Middle East. We do not have permanent infertility data for most Middle Eastern countries, but the fertility rate in neighboring Iraq (at four children per female) is more than double that of Iran. In fact, the proportion of cousin marriages is inversely correlated with fertility, because women in the sort of traditional society that fosters cousin marriage tend to bear more children.

Virginia Muslim Family Indicted on Slavery Charges

June 10, 2019 - San Francisco, CA - PipeLineNews.org - Surprise, surprise, members of a Virginia Muslim family have been charged to what amounts to slavery; the indictment was unsealed today, “following the arrests of Zahida Aman, 77, Mohammed Naumann Chaudhri, 51, and Mohammed Rehan Chaudhri, 45, all of Midlothian, Virginia. The indictment charges the defendants with conspiracy, forced labor, and document servitude. Assistant Attorney General Eric Dreiband of the Justice Department’s Civil Rights Division, U.S. Attorney G. Zachary Terwilliger Eastern District of Virginia and David W. Archey, Special Agent in Charge of the FBI’s Richmond Field Office made the announcement.”

The degree to which the victim was allegedly abused is shocking:

“According to the allegations set forth in the indictment, between March 2002 and August 2014, the defendants conspired to force the victim, who had been married to Aman’s son, to provide labor and services at their Midlothian home, to include cleaning the house, painting the house, and mowing the lawn. The indictment further alleges that the defendants subjected the victim to physical, psychological, and verbal abuse, withheld her food, restricted her communications with family and neighbors, confiscated her immigration and identification documents, limited her access to her own children, and threatened to separate her from her children, among other coercive means.”

Is Islam a Genuine Religion or a "Totalitarian Form of Slavery"?

By AMIL IMANI

June 10, 2019 - San Francisco, CA - PipeLineNews.org - To Islam, the Quran is the press and the only press. There is no need for critical reporting, no need to present ideas that may conflict with the Quran, and no place for criticism of anything Islamic…

Whereas a representative Republic is defined as the rule of the people, by the people, for the people, Islam is defined as the rule of Allah, by Allah and his emissaries, for the pleasure of Allah. And when people, out of concern for political correctness or ignorance, describe Islam as a religion, (forget the peace) they are, at the very least, guilty of misrepresenting it.

Islam is a comprehensive totalitarian form of slavery. It is the opposite of freedom. Islam means submission or surrender. True to its name, Islam strives for nothing short of enslavement of the body of humanity as well as the bondage of its mind. This non-negotiable surrender to Islam requires the individual, as well as the society, to disenfranchise themselves of many fundamental and deeply cherished human rights. Islam seeks nothing less than total global domination.

Islam is an unabashed politico-expansionist movement wrapped in the trappings of religion and bent on universal conquest by any and all means or tricks available at its disposal.

In the interest of impartiality, the authors of the Constitution did not define what constitutes a religion. Presently, a plethora of sects, cults and orders-all claiming to be religion-cover the length and the breadth of the land. So, as long as these “religions” minister to the legitimate spiritual needs of their congregations without threatening the rights of others, there is no reason for concern. However, when one or more of these claimants strive to undermine the very Constitution that protects them in order to impose their beliefs and way of life, serious problems arise.

The Real Story About Flight 800 - Conclusion

By CHERYL GATESWORTH

June 10, 2019 - San Francisco, CA - PipeLineNews.org - As we wrote in the first article concerning the destruction of TWA flight 800, the official conclusion that a spark in a near empty fuel tank was the producing cause was rejected by many professionals and members of the aviation community. It was widely assumed to be a cover up designed to protect the Clinton administration, desperate to win a second term and eager not to acknowledge what would have been the fourth major terrorist strike on its wa.

While the actual cause of the crash may not at present be known - even the NTSB concedes that the initiating cause of any center fuel tank ignition has never been identified - a terrorist missile attack remains by far the most likely scenario. As more facts are emerging, those who constitute today's investigative movement have sought to have the crash analysis reopened.

As to the question of why this particular flight was the target of a terrorist attack, the answer may be that Flight 800, late in departing, was assigned the time slot of another 747, this an El Al Israeli airlines flight. The El Al flight would have been over the crash site at the same time as the TWA Flight 800.

Soon after the downing of Flight 800, an investigation was initiated by Accuracy in Media (AIM) under the leadership of the late Reed Irvine, and later joined by the Associated Retired Aviation Professionals (A.R.A.P.)and Flight 800 Independent Researchers Association (FIRO), the latter formed by then PhD candidate in Physics, Tom Stalcup.

Retired TWA 747 Captain Al Francis, who is one of the leaders of the movement to re-open the investigation, may soon have an in person meeting with Senator Lindsay Graham (R, South Carolina), current Chair of the Senate Committee on the Judiciary. In addition to Senator Graham, Senator Tim Scott (R, South Carolina) and Congressman Joe Wilson (R, South Carolina) will also be included. Captain Francis will keep us posted.

In the last few years an increasing number of whistle blowers have come forward, and research has unearthed CIA documents pertaining to Flight 800, again raising the question of why the CIA was involved in the crash of a domestic flight said to be caused by a mechanical malfunction with no foreign involvement.

Islam in Conflict with the Constitution – Holding Muslim Public Officials Accountable to the 13thAmendment

By STEPHEN M. KIRBY

June 10, 2019 – San Francisco, CA – PipeLineNews.org - This is the final article in a series that resulted from my May 8, 2019 article that addressed the idea of looking into the religious beliefs of Muslim public officials.[1] The first article in this subsequent series examined some important concepts and then focused on Islam and the freedom of speech and religion guaranteed by the 1stAmendment to the U.S. Constitution. [2] The second article focused on Islam and the 8thAmendment, which prohibits cruel and unusual punishment.[3]

This final article looks at Islam and the 13thAmendment. The 13 thAmendment prohibits slavery; this is part of the Constitution that Muslim public officials publicly swear to support, defend, and bear allegiance to, while their religion supports slavery.

We must start holding Muslim public officials accountable for those contradictions between their religion and the Constitution they swear to uphold. As with the previous articles this one provides you the information you need to understand those contradictions along with some suggested action items, and then there are some concluding thoughts.

Whom Your Right Hands Possess

This is a special category of slaves under Islam. A non-Muslim woman captured by Muslims during battle falls under the category of those "whom your right hands possess." She then becomes a slave to her Muslim captor and it becomes "legal" for him to have intercourse with her. This is authorized by Koran 4:24, which begins by talking about how Muslim men are forbidden from marrying (and having sex with) women who are already married, but then makes an important exception:

Also (forbidden are) women already married, except those (slaves) whom your right hands possess. Thus has Allah ordained for you...

The authoritative 14thCentury Muslim scholar Ibn Kathir explained the meaning of this verse:

The Ayah [verse] means, you are prohibited from marrying women who are already married, (except those whom your right hands possess) except those whom you acquire through war, for you are allowed such women after making sure they are not pregnant. Imam Ahmad recorded that Abu Sa'id Al-Khudri said, "We captured some women from the area of Awtas who were already married, and we disliked having sexual relations with them because they already had husbands. So, we asked the Prophet about this matter, and this Ayah was revealed...Consequently we had sexual relations with these women. [4]

So instead of Muhammad prohibiting his Muslim warriors from raping the women they had captured in the area of Awtas, Koran 4:24 was “revealed” to him giving his Muslim warriors Allah’s authorization to not only have slaves from among the captured non-Muslim women, but to also actually go ahead and rape them!

Alleged Soros Funded Immigrant Smuggling Group Busted

By WILLIAM MAYER

June 8, 2019 - San Francisco, CA - PipeLineNews.org – Leaders of the notorious illegal immigrant warfare outfit Pueblo Sin Fronteras [PSB, Village Without Borders] were arrested in Mexico this week following President Trump’s promised 5% tariff/month threat.

As the LA Times reports:

"Irineo Mujica, the director of Pueblo Sin Fronterasan activist group that has helped several large caravans of Central American migrants cross Mexico and reach the United States, was ARRESTED in the northern border city of Sonoyta and charged with illegally transporting migrants. Another activist who has worked with caravans, Cristobal Sanchez, was ARRESTED near the southern border and charged with smuggling migrants into Mexico.” [emphasis, author]

Big League Politics identifies PSB’s parent group as Centro Sin Fronteras which these same outlets link to George Soros, a Marxist billionaire, agitator and convicted felon.

“The…partent group… is reportedly a “mainstay” of the caravan effort. The Centro has received funding from the George Soros-financed National Immigration Forum. A…spokeswoman and organizer, Viridiana Vidal, is the Nevada state director for America’s Voice, which has been paid consulting fees by the George Soros-funded Immigrant Voters Win PAC. That Soros-funded PAC also pays salaries for America’s Voice’s top executives.”

The arrests combined with President Trump’s apparently successful effort to force the corrupt Mexican government to stop the flow of illegals via the threat of a 5% tariff on all Mexican exports to the United States [$22 billion in automobiles yearly] is a staggering blow to Soros and the left’s continued efforts to destabilized the United States.

If it Quacks…The Dangerous Case of Dr. Bandy Lee’s Remote Diagnosis

June 5, 2019 - San Francisco, CA - PipeLineNews.org - The Democrat Party seems to have found kindred spirit in their effort to unseat the duly elected President of the United States, Donald Trump.

Her name is Dr. Bandy Lee a psychiatrist who is on Yale University’s payroll and the author of a book in which she claims to offer evidence of President Trump’s deteriorating state of mental health.

Ms. Lee has apparently never met, yet alone examined the president.

Regarding diagnosis of mental conditions the Mayo Clinic suggests:

  • A physical exam. Your doctor will try to rule out physical problems that could cause your symptoms.

  • Lab tests. These may include, for example, a check of your thyroid function or a screening for alcohol and drugs.

  • A psychological evaluation. A doctor or mental health provider talks to you about your symptoms, thoughts, feelings and behavior patterns. You may be asked to fill out a questionnaire to help answer these questions. [source, Mental Illness, Diagnosis and Treatment , Mayo Clinic]

Let’s dispense with the subtleties, Dr. Lee is a quack and really should have her license to practice revoked since she is using color of authority to advance a political agenda based upon what should be a very detailed and private medical examination.

Mitch McConnell, the Deep State and the Chinese Communist Challenge

By WILLIAM MAYER

June 5, 2019 - San Francisco, CA - PipeLineNews.org - Though we published this expose in May, new information relating to the matters covered therein prompts us to re-visit it with clarifying information.

Three days ago the New York Times published a feature piece alleging that Transportation Secretary Elaine Chao has extensive and troubling ties to the Chinese Communist Government [see, MIchael Forsythe, Eric Lipton, For the Chao Family, Deep Ties to the World's 2 Largest Economies].

The charges are not new, note that this publication devoted 3,500 words to the matter in May, though the outlines of the should-be-scandal were known as early as 2001, as noted in the below article.

Until the Times piece the questions posed had generated zero traction, but upon the publication the matter was given suspiciously short shrift in the legacy media including Fox News that aired a short [the item ran 2 minutes with no followup as far as this author can determine] ridiculous defense of Chao, ending the video clip with Citizens Against Government Wastes' Thomas Schatz stating essentially that there was no there there and that the charges were "a giant story about nothing." Fox did not identify Shatz' organization as being extremely friendly to official DC and especially the GOP.

We will let the reader judge the veracity of the Fox brush off noting that the most recent investigation into the influence peddling by Chao [whose husband just happens to be Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell] was done by noted investigative journalist Peter Schweitzer [no friend of the Democrat establishment] in his latest work, Secret Empires.

So with that as the new back-story, please read on...


The People’s Republic of China [PRC] is a hostile foreign power guided by a policy whereby it hopes to establish a global hegemon supplanting that of the United States. It does so for a number of reasons, perhaps the most basic of all being the very long held [multi-millennial actually] racialist belief in China of the nation’s ethnic and cultural superiority, specifically that of the Han ethnic group [the Han Chinese, the world’s largest ethnic group] that came [returned] to power during the 1911 Xinhai Revolution which overthrew the “foreign influences” [the Manchus] thus yielding the “New China.”

Imperial Theory

Observers have noted that the degree to which Han-centrism guides China’s internal and external policies has been increasing at least since the 1990s.

“…As Chinese nationalism has become more ethnocentric since the 1990s, the cultural chauvinism of Han‐centrism has become increasingly more influential in the debate over national identity. Within this narrative, Han culture is considered to be the authentic character of the nation; to deviate from the Han identity will only tarnish Chinese exceptionalism and impede China's rise.” [source, John M. Friend, Bradley A. Thayer, The Rise of Han‐Centrism and What It Means for International Politics , Association for the Study of Ethnicity and Nationalism]

As evidence that Han-centrism has extraordinarily deep and culturally appealing roots one need look no further than China’s President Xi Jinping’s “One Belt, One Road” [2013, now Belt and Road Initiative, BRI] initiative, which is none other than a modern attempt by the PRC to recreate the ancient, glory day, Silk Road built during the Han Dynasty [206-220 BC] that linked China to Europe via the Central Asian countries of Pakistan, Afghanistan, Turkmenistan, Kyrgystan, Kazakhstan, Tajikistan and Uzbekistan.

Islam in Conflict with the Constitution: Holding Muslim Public Officials Accountable to the 8thAmendment

By STEPHEN M. KIRBY

June 3, 2019 - San Francisco, CA - PipeLineNews.org - The first article in this series[1]explained the purpose of the series and then briefly examined the significance of the oath of office for public officials and the foundations of Islamic Doctrine. The article then looked at Islam and the 1stAmendment to the U.S. Constitution, focusing on freedom of speech and freedom of religion. If you have not read the first article, I strongly encourage you to do so before proceeding with this article.

This is the second article in the series, and it looks at Islam and the 8th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution. The 8thAmendment prohibits cruel and unusual punishment; this is part of the Constitution that Muslim public officials publicly swear to support, defend, and bear allegiance to, while their religion demands the very opposite.

We must start holding Muslim public officials accountable for those contradictions between their religion and the Constitution they swear to uphold. This article provides you the information you need to understand those contradictions, and then ends with suggested action items.

We will be examining the following punishments which are allowed, and even sometimes commanded by the Koran and/or the teachings and example of Muhammad, Islam’s final prophet:

  • Amputation and death for theft
  • Amputation of a hand and foot from the opposite sides
  • Amputation of the fingers and toes
  • Beheading
  • Burning people to death
  • Crucifixion
  • Flogging
  • Stoning to death
  • Torture

Let’s start out with the punishments for theft allowed under Islam.

Real Islam - Teach Your Children Well

By AMIL IMANI

June 1, 2019 - San Francisco, CA - PipeLineNews.org - Start to immediately tell them that to know Islam is not a race and Islamophobia is a term used by groups of Muslims and non-Muslim apologists in order to protect Islam from scrutiny. Make sure they understand the term Islamophobia is itself misleading. A phobia is an irrational fear of something. In the case of Islam, however, it often makes practical sense to be afraid. Even most former Muslims themselves, have genuine fears about a religion that advocates the murder of its apostates and victimizes its own members, especially innocent women and children.

Make sure they understand the criminalization of homosexuality under the teachings of Islam. Homosexuality is not only a sin, but a crime. As a crime against God, it is permissible, according to many Muslim scholars, to punish the offender with death.

Be sure they understand once a Muslim leaves the religion of Islam, he or she is condemned to death for turning their back against Islam. Educate them about the founder of Islam, the prophet Muhammad and his crimes against humanity. They must know any criticism against Islam in public can be punished by death. Do not allow them to learn the sanitized version of it in public schools. Make sure they understand that. Most school texts are written by Muslims and it is a pure fabrication.

For a starter, remember the Somali Muslim cabbies of the Minneapolis airport and their refusal of blind fares with seeing-eye dogs, because dogs are unclean according to their belief. The same cabbies that had a virtual monopoly at the airport also rejected passengers who had alcoholic beverages in their possession.

Be honest and firm about it. Explain that the Muslim book, the Quran, discriminates against women:

[Quran 4.34] “Men have authority over women because Allah has made the one superior to the others and because they spend their wealth to maintain them. Good women are obedient. They guard their unseen parts because Allah has guarded them. As for those from whom you fear disobedience, admonish them and send them to beds apart and beat them. Then if they obey you take no further action against them. Allah is high, supreme.”

Muslims always blame others for their misery. They blame the Jews, Christians and America for their fate. No, it is not the Jews or the Christians who are misrepresenting Islam and make them unhappy. It is Muslims and Muslim organizations who are guilty of dissimulation and fraud. Muslims act meekly when they lack sufficient power. Once in power, the real Islam emerges from its shell of dissimulation and puts free people and their way of life to the sword.
