The Iowa Caucus and Iran

Christopher Bollyn – December 29, 2011

I had always believed, and still believe, that oppressive forces draw much of their strength from their ability to wield their power in secret.

The Crown family supports candidates from both parties, depending on their strategic goal. Susan Crown, for example, who gave at least $12,300 to candidate Obama between 2003 and 2007 is now supporting the Republican Mitt Romney’s bid for the White House.

The Republican caucus in Iowa on January 3 is of great importance because it is the first poll to determine which candidate will challenge Barack Obama for the presidency.  A CNN/Time poll indicates that Ron Paul and Mitt Romney are currently the front runners polling about 25 percent each.  Two days earlier Ron Paul was the clear front runner, several points ahead of Romney and Newt Gingrich, who has now fallen further behind.
One of the key issues in the GOP Iowa caucus is the position of the candidates regarding the Zionist war policy against Iran.  Ron Paul is opposed to waging war against Iran while Romney and most of the others are eager armchair warriors against the Islamic Republic of Iran.  With the new U.S. sanctions having brought Iranian threats to close the Straits of Hormuz, the issue is now of the utmost importance as the chances of war are greater than ever. 
Iran has been the subject of a Zionist war strategy for years in the same way that organized Jewry declared war on Germany in the early 1930s, long before the invasion of Poland in 1939.  The punitive sanctions against Iran are war by other methods and unless the United States changes its approach to Iran it will find itself in another major war in the Middle East, one with unforeseeable consequences.

The Crown family of Chicago is one of the key Zionist supporters of Barack Obama and Mitt Romney.  As a major shareholder of General Dynamics, the Crown family profits from U.S. defense spending and war.  As a leading Zionist family, the Crowns support sanctions and the Israeli warmongering against Iran.  The Crowns have invested in Mitt Romney because he is willing to wage war to please his Zionist supporters.  To push the nation into war to serve a foreign state is treasonous.
Mitt Romney would probably win the caucus if the Republican Party of Iowa were to tally the caucus results using the dodgy Voxeo telephonic tally system used by the Iowa Democrats in 2004 and 2008.  But after having intensively queried the Republican Party of Iowa about how the results will be tallied it seems to me that they will be tallying the results themselves in Des Moines. 
Nicole Sizemore, assistant communications director for the GOP of Iowa, told that there is no outside contractor involved in the tally and that it will be a “very transparent” poll with multiple observers.  Although Sizemore could not reveal the specifics about how the results would be communicated to headquarters, she confirmed that a complete breakdown of the 1,774 precinct results would be published within 14 days. 
This is good news because it suggests that the results of the January 3 Republican caucus are likely to be more representative, honest, and accurate than the Democratic caucus in 2008 that helped bring the dark horse candidate Barack Obama to power.  In 2004 another dark horse candidate, John Kerry, came from behind to run against George W. Bush.  In both cases, pro-war candidates from the back of the pack won the rigged caucus effectively removing the question of the illegal war policy from the debate.  Let’s hope Ron Paul wins Iowa in a truly honest and transparent caucus on January 3.  We certainly don’t need anymore illegal Zionist wars for profit.
