Rogue State USA “Seizes” Website of Iran’s Press TV

"Seizes" as in s-t-e-a-l-s

Editor’s note: Let’s be clear here. There is no “seizure” going on here. Washington doesn’t have judicial and police powers over Iran. This is simply a cyber invasion of Iranian online property.


US authorities have seized the web domains of Iran’s international media outlets Press TV and Al-Alam, along with the Yemeni TV channel Al Masirah, run by the Houthi faction.

Visitors to the three domains were greeted on Tuesday with a notice that they were seized under US laws that allow civil and criminal forfeiture of property involved in “trafficking in nuclear, chemical, biological, or radiological weapons technology or material, or the manufacture, importation, sale, or distribution of a controlled substance.”

The seizure notice by the US Department of Justice also invokes a law governing presidential authority in dealing with “unusual and extraordinary threat; declaration of national emergency,” which includes the Iran Nonproliferation Amendments Act of 2005 and the ironically named Iran Freedom Support Act of 2006.

Launched in July 2007, Press TV is the international English-language service of the Islamic Republic of Iran Broadcasting (IRIB), Tehran’s state media agency. Al-Alam goes back to 2003 and is broadcast in Arabic, Farsi and English to audiences in the Middle East and the Mediterranean.

Al-Masirah is not owned by Iran, but by Ansarullah – the movement of the Houthis in Yemen, a faction the US has accused of being “proxies” of Iran on account of them being Shia Muslims and resisting the invasion of Yemen by Saudi Arabia since 2015. The TV channel is headquartered in Beirut, Lebanon.

Washington’s move comes just a day after the newly elected Iranian President Ebrahim Raisi urged the US to lift all sanctions on Tehran and rejoin the 2015 nuclear deal, negotiated by the Obama administration but unilaterally repudiated by President Donald Trump in 2018. Raisi called on the US to “live up to your commitments” in the deal, known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA). He also said the Iranian ballistic missile program was “not up for negotiation.”

 While the Trump administration took a hard-line approach to Iran, imposing unprecedented sanctions and even assassinating a senior Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps general – resulting in Iranian missile strikes against US bases in Iraq – it never moved against media outlets. The Biden administration was thought to be open for relaxing tensions.

Just last week, Iranian negotiators said they had reached a deal with their US counterparts to lift the Trump-era sanctions.

The United States is not agreement capable.

Because the real rulers of the slave USSA are racist supremacist Jews like the Rothschilds, Soroses, Adelson’s etc., with their racist supremacist global Jewish slave empire dictatorship. Trump, Obama, Biden etc., are just dish washers, toilet cleaners etc.

Basic negotiation rules. One has to negotiate with those who have decision making powers. Its like expecting Bill Gates to be bound by an agreement made by a broom pushing janitor at a Microsoft facility. This is negotiation for beginners.

Why Russia, China Iran etc., still go along with such pointless meetings with any such USSA clowns stumps me. Tell Biden, Trump and Obama and the other USSA clowns to clean some toilets while Russia China Iran etc. negotiate with the actual rulers of the USSA.

The same for the EU, UK, France Germany etc. or don’t negotiate at all, as agreements with toilet cleaners and dishwashers are worthless.

The way Trump had his right to free speech taken away by Zuckerberg etc. While Trump was still supposed to be a president still in office proves this beyond any doubt. It was a vulgar display of Jewish power for even the most stupid Goyim to see.
