• More Foreign Election Interference: Iran vs. Donald Trump …

    One of the week’s most popular …

    Surge Summary: Russian and Iranian attempts to interfere with America’s elections have just been uncovered. Iran specifically has attempted to smear Donald Trump and his supporters. That regime has every reason to want Joe Biden in the White House.

    There was breaking news late yesterday about Russian and Iranian attempts to interfere in the election and influence its outcome.  Predictably, the media have it exactly backwards.

    Some Democrat voters received threatening emails that appeared to come from the Proud Boys.  The messages read, “Vote for Donald Trump or else!”  Other messages included the recipients home address and stated, “You will vote for Trump on Election Day or we will come after you.”

    These messages did not come from the Proud Boys.  They came from the Islamic Republic of Iran.

    Some pundits insanely suggested that this was evidence that Iran was helping Trump.  If there’s one regime in the world that most wants to see Trump defeated, it’s the mullahs of Iran.  There is no logical explanation for why Iran would want to help Donald Trump.

    He has crushed their economy with biting sanctions.  He took out their terrorist mastermind, Qassem Soleimani.  He has strengthened our alliance with Israel, and has broken the decades-old stalemate of Arab hostility toward the Jewish state.  But the ayatollah has every reason to want Joe Biden back in power.

    The Obama/Biden Administration gave Iran billions of dollars, and Joe Biden wants to cut another deal with Iran.  The Democrat Party is increasingly hostile toward Israel, and largely condemned Trump for taking out Soleimani.

    Like so many progressives, Iran was committing fake hate crimes with these fake emails in order to smear Donald Trump and his supporters.  They knew the offensive emails would get leaked to the press.

    Sure enough, the Lincoln Project, a group of NeverTrumpers, cited the fake Proud Boys emails as evidence of the hate among Trump supporters.  I wonder if the Lincoln Project coordinated its efforts with Iran.

    But just to clear up any confusion about the issue, Director of National Intelligence John Ratcliffe said yesterday, “We have already seen Iran sending spoofed emails designed to intimidate voters, incite social unrest and damage President Trump.”

    In other words, Iran is helping Joe Biden!
