The state apparatus for the mullahs is coming apart.

At least two presenters working for the Iranian state broadcaster IRIB have announced they have quit their jobs, with a third saying she quit some time ago after having told lies on behalf of the state for 13 years.

Gelare Jabbari apologised in an Instagram post, writing: "It was very hard for me to believe that our people have been killed. Forgive me that I got to know this late. And forgive me for the 13 years I told you lies."

...

The journalists; statements are part of a crisis of confidence following the initial attempts by state officials to deny that Ukrainian jetliner 752 had been shot down by mistake by members of the Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corp (IRGC) air defence force.

The crisis is leading even some of the news agencies most closely associated with the regime to start reporting on the street protests, or a least to start addressing the allegations about a potential state cover-up.

Is it too much to hope that the mullahs could be thrown out and we could have normalized relations with Iran by the end of Trump’s 2nd term?

1. Trump is the right man at the right time for America.

Democrats should be ashamed. People here should protest in support of the Iranians and against Democrats and the MSM for their lies.

The main stream media and Democrats here think they have the same control the Mullahs have in Iran.

The Iranian people recognize Donald Trump is a friend . He wants their freedom unlike Obama and Democrats.

2. If the mullahs lose their grip, the IRGC will establish a more secular dictatorship
