Mark Dankof on The Monica Witt USAF/OSI Spy Defection Case and Marzieh Hashemi of Press TV/Iran

CultureWarsNewNewWorldOrder

Gareth Porter at the New Horizons Conference in Iran with Marzieh Hashemi of Press TV in 2014. Hashemi and New Horizon NGO are now fingered in the Monica Witt Spy Case.

 

     One has to be oblivious to international and national news stories not to be aware of the breaking Monica Witt spy/treason/defection case involving this young lady Texan in the United States Air Force’s Office of Special Investigations (OSI).  News agencies are reporting en masse that “Individual A” in the 27 page Federal Grand Jury Indictment in United States District Court is thought to be Marzieh Hashemi, the Press TV News Anchor in Tehran.

     Hashemi is the former Melanie Franklin of New Orleans and still an American citizen.  When she was recently arrested in St. Louis at the airport and subsequently detained without charges in Washington, D. C., I and others wrote honest op-eds in defense of her work as a journalist.  Mine may be accessed on this very website.  It will remain there.

     Nonetheless, articles emerging in places like Clearance Jobs prove increasingly damning to both Witt and Hashemi.  The case for espionage and treason by two American citizens on behalf of a foreign power seems powerful.  I have read the entire 27 page Grand Jury indictment with an eye on the media reports.  None of it is good.  All of this will soon be discussed publicly on National Bugle Radio on the Republic Broadcasting Network with host Dr. Patrick Slattery.

     The New Horizon NGO of Iran is also under the official sanction of the U. S. Treasury Department as having been a willing front in this espionage/treason affair aimed at the United States.

     This is especially interesting to me, given the multiple invitations issued to me by this organization in years past for journalistic conferences in Tehran, including the time Monica Witt was in attendance in 2012.  But the Iranian government always managed to never issue me a visa, despite the fact that all of the official paperwork was submitted on time.

     I chalked this up to the fact that my status as a member of the NRA and a critic of  the Marxist-oriented Black Lives Matter, an organization Marzieh Hashemi has been working closely with, didn’t fit what the New Horizon Conference organizer, Reza Montazemi, was aiming for.  I also suspected my late Father’s past as an Air Force logistics advisor in Iran for the Shah’s Air Force in the last 5 years of the Pahlavi regime might have made the Iranian government suspicious of my own possible links to American intelligence.

     But 2014 confirmed that it went way beyond that, with the catastrophic public relations nightmare that befell Iran and the New Horizons NGO in the so-called Gareth Porter/BuzzFeed/New Horizons/Reza Montazami debacle.  Dr. E. Michael Jones of Culture Wars wrote the real inside story on that insidious mess in the December 2014 issue.  It was all stripped bare for all to behold in the cover story, entitled The New New World Order.  Yes, that’s Marzieh Hashemi, a.k.a. Melanie Franklin on the cover with Gareth Porter, whose own nefarious role over 4 years ago in Tehran is completely exposed in Culture Wars.

     Marzieh Hashemi took personal charge of making assurances to me that my visa wouldn’t fall through the cracks again in 2014, as it had repeatedly for a series of years in the past.  But it didn’t happen.  And she disappeared without a subsequent trace or apology to me.

     Nonetheless, I can understand how she was caught up in things that year that went well beyond her authority or ability to make right.

     [I can also understand why Reza Montazemi of New Horizon NGO stopped talking to me after a 2014 conference call he set up with Mark Glenn and Mark Dankof with Ken O’Keefe as intermediary with video and sound.  Montazemi later brought Mark Glenn to Tehran in an attempt at reconciliation.  E. Michael Jones later made it after the Culture Wars cover story he penned on the Gareth Porter/BuzzFeed/New Horizon/Reza Montazemi incident.  I never did.  I must confess what I told Montazemi to his Skype video face in that conversation, albeit true, did not comport well with being a Lutheran pastor (smile).  But he knew I was finished with him, and subsequently he with me.]

Free Speech Advocate or IRI intelligence operative in the Monica Witt Spy Case.  Is Marzieh “Individual A?”

     But in 2019, allegedly being involved as an American citizen as a knowing operational liaison between Islamic Republic of Iran intelligence and an American USAF/OSI technical sergeant from Texas bent on betraying her country and her oaths, Marzieh Hashemi has lost all credibility with me as a human being and an independent journalist and activist. Her dropping of all communication with me after the Gareth Porter/BuzzFeed/New Horizons/Reza Montazemi circus of late 2014 takes on new meaning with what continues emerging in the Monica Witt spy affair.

     I want to make it clear that I am proud of my past appearances on Press TV, and the things I and other honest American journalists have been allowed to bring forth globally there over the past decade on the New World Order, Zionism, and the hijacking of the American government by the Israeli government and its Lobby in the United States.  I do not apologize for any of it.  But much as I am sickened by the sellout of the people of the United States by who it is that controls the globalist American political elite enamored of fiat money; wars for Israel; false flag operations; and illegitimate aggression against Iran, Russia, Ukraine, Syria, Palestine, Libya, and Venezuela among others, I cannot endorse work in a journalistic context with people involved in espionage and treason against my own country and ironically enough, what was their own. If I could, I’d work for the Israelis.  Their pay scale is much better.  They have a good retirement plan also.

     Marzieh Hashemi has given the Anti-Defamation League of B’nai Brith, the Southern Poverty Law Center, Israeli intelligence, the Bolton/Pompeo/Elliott Abrams War Party, The Daily Beast, BuzzFeed, and the entire Neo-Conservative American MSM a propaganda field day.  She has betrayed Americans across the political spectrum who risked their lives and livelihoods to speak the truth to the people of the United States and the world on what was involved in 9-11 and in all the events that followed by appearing on Press TV. Her recent attempt to paint her detention in Washington as a case of white racism against all black folks and Muslims is straight out of the Black Lives Matter playbook.  It is also, sadly enough, now a transparent case of complete bullshit.

     That shall be the ultimate irony of this entire episode, with future innocent victims on both sides in the war that is coming an absolute guarantee.

Mark Dankof to Christian Science Monitor: The Republic Broadcasting Network and Fringe Right Extremism

 

 

 

 

 

Letter to the Editor
Christian Science Monitor
 
Dear Sir (s):
 
     As a Lutheran pastor and ex-host of “Mark Dankof’s America” on the Republic Broadcasting Network, I wish to respond to your recent articles by Patrik Jonsson, entitled “Guardians of the free Republics Tied to Texas Radio Station,” and “Guardians of the free Republics:  Could Threats Spark Violence?”
 
     It is clear that Sam Kennedy of the “Take No Prisoners”  show on the Republic Broadcasting Network, was clearly irresponsible in his reported actions taken in conjunction with the Guardians organization, apparently inextricably linked to the “sovereign citizens” ideology.  Much like its first cousin, the so-called Christian Identity movement, such groupings simply serve to discredit a larger American populist movement that has many legitimate grievances, and an equal number of intellectually respectable adherents.
 
     During my tenure with the Republic Broadcasting Network, a number of people in this latter category were guests on my show.  These people include Mark Weber of the Institute for Historical Review; Dr. Ron Larsen of Liberty Calling in Austin, whose possession of a Ph. D. in physics from Cornell University made him uniquely qualified to address issues related to the government’s official version of the events surrounding September 11, 2001; Dr. Paul Craig Roberts, assistant secretary to the Treasury under President Reagan; Dr. Paul Sheldon Foote of Cal State Fullerton University, an expert on the Mujahedeen-e-Khalq (Mek/MKO); and Dr. David Duke, presently teaching history in the Ukraine.  Allowing these individuals to speak directly to my audience for themselves, and to be unfiltered by the lenses of American corporate media’s interpretation of their public personas and positions, was an invaluable exercise I do not apologize for.
 
     I had a much larger grouping of guests as well, including the ex-CIA station chief in Turkey, Philip Giraldi, now a Middle East consultant for Pat Buchanan’s The American Conservative; Ray McGovern of Veteran Intelligence Professionals for Sanity (VIPS) and preparer of National Intelligence Estimates (NIE) for the President of the United States; Dr. Ilan Pappe, author of The Ethnic Cleansing of Palestine; Dilip Hiro, author of The Iranian Labyrinth and The Essential Middle East, and Middle East consultant for the BBC and The Economist; world renowed military historian Barrett Tillman, author of LeMay for the Palgrave Great Generals Series; and Ms. Jennifer Lowenstein, Middle East peace activist with academic connections at both the University of Wisconsin and Oxford University in England.  One presumes Mr. Giraldi may agree with some of my views; it is a safe bet that these other guests sharply deviate from my ideas in many areas of public policy.  Yet they have all been on my broadcast, much to the edification of my listeners.
 
     There is one other item of note that I hope you will not edit from my letter to your fine publication:  the clear benefit derived by the Southern Poverty Law Center and its sister organization, the Anti-Defamation League of B’nai Brith (ADL), from the demonstrated irresponsibility of the Republic Broadcasting Network in providing an assist to Mr. Kennedy and the loon mentality of the “sovereign citizens” movement, in distributing the recent letter to American governors around the country, including Governor Rick Perry here in Texas.  This letter is a moral, political, and intellectual embarrassment to the respectable American populist and anti-neo-conservative Right, and should be repudiated unequivocally and without ambiguity.
 
     How does this faux pas benefit the Southern Poverty Law Center and the Anti-Defamation League of B’nai Brith?  In one obvious way–it assists these far-left organizations, working in conjunction with misguided elements of the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) and the Department of Homeland Security, in demonizing law-abiding and faithful Americans who in fact, are tired of the disproportionate influence of the Israel lobby in formulating our nation’s foreign policy and unduly influencing corporate news media in the United States; who see the over-extended character of the American military posture abroad, including our present quagmires in Iraq and Afghanistan, as a long-term threat to both true American national security interests, and economic stability at home; who do not support the preemptive utilization of American and Israeli military force against Iran; who view the draconian expansion of federal budgets, debt, and foreign borrowing as a sword pointed at the throat of our Republic; who have watched globalist trade treaties facilitate the exportation of the previously formidable American manufacturing economic sector overseas; who understand with increasing alarm, the dangerous implications of warrantless NSA spying and other post 9-11 programs of federal intelligence and surveillance operations left unchecked by the Constitution, the Congress, and the FISA court; and who want the worse excesses of the Federal Reserve Board and the central banking system eliminated, and its perpetrators held accountable.
 
     John Stadtmiller of the Republic Broadcasting Network, and Sam Kennedy of the “Take No Prisoners” radio show, have handed these enemies of our movement, a serious propaganda coup in the national public embarrassment generated by the events of recent days.  Such situations that have occurred from time to time at that Network contributed to my own decision to vacate the premises, along with colleagues Mark Glenn and Phil Tourney of The Liberty Hour, who like me can only breathe a sigh of relief at the wisdom of our voluntary disaffiliation for other confines.
 
Sincerely,
 
 
The Rev. Mark E. Dankof
