Against insider trading laws in the United States of America
US house of representatives has unconstitutionally, unlawfully, groundlessly and in violation of the derivative natural right to absolute freedom of speech, recognized and protected in the first amendment to the US constitution, passed legislation on so-called insider trading, which is not a crime and cannot be reasonably construed to be a crime.

What is so-called insider trading? It is trading on information which is not available to the general public, which is how most trading is done worldwide. In fact, so-called insider trading is completely legal and serves valid and important economic function: swift discovery of equilibrium prices for goods and business services in the markets. In fact, any law prohibiting so-called insider trading establishes unlawful restraints on trade, significantly slowing down establishment of equilibrium prices for goods and business services in the markets.

In fact, a human being, a man and woman, has a derivative natural right to absolute freedom of speech, that is, freedom of spoken, written and printed word, which includes a derivative natural right to receive information by whatever means he chooses, be they Good or evil, and all other men and women must unconditionally respect the derivative natural right to absolute freedom of speech of every man and every woman, which is an inalienable part of nature and dignity of every man and every woman, and which stands above every constitution, every law and every act of law of every state, nation, people or international organization. The provisions of the first amendment to the US constitution are clear:

“Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances”

Thereby US Congress is directly prohibited by the derivative natural right to absolute freedom of speech, recognized and protected in the first amendment to the US constitution, from making any law prohibiting insider trading, that is, trading on information which is not available to the general public, which is allowed by the derivative natural right to economic freedom, recognized and protected in the ninth amendment to the US constitution. In fact, the founders of the United States of America understood well the necessity of free trade, including trade on information which is not available to the general public, to preserve and extend freedom of Americans, establish justice in America, and bring prosperity to all American families, and actively engaged in free trade, including trade on information which is not available to the general public, giving good and proper example to all Americans.

In fact, unconstitutional, unlawful and groundless legislation of the US house of representatives on so-called insider trading reflects unreasonable democratic hatred of American businessmen and industrialists - America persecuted minority, and goes against the wise statement of great American republican president and American federal judge Calvin Coolidge, who openly approved of so-called insider trading, that is, trading on information which is not available to the general public, clearly stating that business of America is trade, including so-called insider trading, in response to complaints of democratic haters of American businessmen and industrialists that rich American men profit from trading on information which is not available to the general public. In fact, so-called insider trading is not even a major problem of American economic system, and therefore the principle of justice de minimis is applicable to any legislation of the US Congress on so-called insider trading: de minimis non curat lex, that is, the law does not concern itself with small things.

Republican, conservative, nationalist, patriotic, fundamentalist and White US citizens shall swiftly contact their respective US senators, asking them to reject unconstitutional, unlawful and groundless legislation of the US house of representatives on so-called insider trading, being contrary to the derivative natural right to absolute freedom of speech of US citizens and residents, recognized and protected in the first amendment to the US constitution, and contrary to the derivative natural right to economic freedom of US citizens and residents, recognized and protected in the ninth amendment to the US constitution.

Republican, conservative, nationalist, patriotic, fundamentalist and White US citizens shall swiftly contact the Trump administration and lying US president Donald Trump personally, asking them to reject the unconstitutional, unlawful and groundless legislation of the US house of representatives on so-called insider trading, being contrary to the derivative natural right to absolute freedom of speech of US citizens and residents, recognized and protected in the first amendment to the US constitution, and contrary to the derivative natural right to economic freedom of US citizens and residents, recognized and protected in the ninth amendment to the US constitution. Lying US president Donald Trump shall veto any legislation of the US Congress on so-called insider trading, being contrary to the derivative natural right to absolute freedom of speech of US citizens and residents, recognized and protected in the first amendment to the US constitution, and contrary to the derivative natural right to economic freedom of US citizens and residents, recognized and protected in the ninth amendment to the US constitution.

In support of deployment of short-range missiles and medium- ranged missiles in the United States of America

The United States of America faces a growing threat from the Russian federation, and military alliance of the Russian federation, China and Iran, which is presently formed. It is essential to protect the territory of the United States of America from the sea by deployment of 1000 short-range missiles of 500-1000 miles range (one mile is 1.5 km) and 1000 medium-range missiles of 1000-5000 miles range (one mile is 1.5 km) in the period 2020-2030, given that more than dozen states of the world, including Iran, North Korea, China, have already developed and deployed short- range missiles and medium-range missiles.

Republican, conservative, nationalist, patriotic, fundamentalist and White US citizens shall swiftly contact their respective US representatives and US senators, and the Trump administration, politely asking them to allocate 20 billion USD annually to deploy 1000 short-range missiles of 500-1000 miles range (one mile is 1.5 km) and 1000 medium-range missiles of 1000-5000 miles range (one mile is 1.5 km) in the period 2020-2030 to adequately protect the US territory from the sea, given that more than dozen states of the world, including Iran, North Korea, China, have already developed and deployed short-range missiles and medium-range missiles.

Against USMCA

USMCA text: Agreement between the United States of America, the United Mexican States, and Canada 12/13/19 Text | United States Trade Representative

Reportedly, the lying president of the United States of America, the lying president of Canada and the lying president of Mexico have signed the clearly unconstitutional multilateral United States-Mexico-Canada economic agreement (USMCA), adding thereto provisions, not directly related to trade, which infringe upon US national sovereignty and endanger the national defense of the United States of America.

It is well known that bilateral trade agreements between US and Canada, and US and Mexico, pertaining to free trade in consumer and industrial goods, are beneficial to both parties, and were proven to be so by the statistical analysis performed by the US trade representative in times of Bill Clinton’s presidency. Nevertheless, free trade in business services turned out to be wasteful for both the US and Canada, according to the statistical analysis performed by the US trade representative in times of Bill Clinton’s presidency. Therefore, free trade agreements between US and Canada, and US and Mexico shall be bilateral, and pertain exclusively to trade in consumer and industrial goods, as free trade in consumer and industrial goods has been statistically proven to be beneficial for the US and Canada, and the US and Mexico.

In contrast, the United States-Mexico-Canada economic agreement (USMCA) is obviously wasteful for the United States of America, whereas it concerns trade in services, as proven above, and will not bring a significant increase in trade of goods and business services, contrary to false testimony of the US trade representative who negotiated it.

Additionally, the United States-Mexico-Canada economic agreement (USMCA) is obviously unconstitutional, violating numerous provisions of the US constitution, in particular, the derivative natural right to absolute freedom of speech of citizens and residents of the United States of America, recognized and confirmed in the first amendment to the US constitution.

In particular, non-existent digital trade and non-existent intellectual property clauses of the United States-Mexico-Canada economic agreement (USMCA), unconstitutionally, unlawfully and groundlessly extend US patent and copyright protection to spoken and written words, which are not covered by any patent or copyright protection whatsoever, except for recognition of the author of them, as confirmed by numerous decisions of US state and federal courts, US supreme court, Canadian courts, Mexican courts, Latin American courts, European courts and international courts, and are therefore contrary to the US constitution and US federal, state and district laws made thereto, the supreme constitution and law in the territory of the United States of America.

What is especially perfidious in the United States-Mexico-Canada economic agreement (USMCA) is attempts to invoke US criminal law in civil matters, long adjudicated by US federal, state and district courts, and persecute innocent citizens and residents of the United States of America who make copies of spoken and written words and reproduce copies of spoken and written words as they see fit for themselves. Those US officials who suggest such obviously unconstitutional treaties to the US Congress shall swiftly be expelled from all their positions in the US federal government, as these tyrants do not respect the derivative natural right to absolute freedom of speech of citizens and residents of the United States of America, recognized and confirmed in the first amendment to the US constitution.

In addition, US federal laws unduly extend US copyright protections beyond the inventions realizable in a physical industrial model, beyond the term of fourteen years, beyond trademarks, and beyond the term of fourteen years, thereby inhibiting free trade in consumer and industrial goods. Therefore, US Congress shall swiftly repeal all US federal laws, extending US copyright protections beyond the inventions realizable in a physical industrial model, beyond the term of fourteen years, beyond trademarks, and beyond the term of fourteen years, as such US federal laws inhibit free trade in consumer and industrial goods, and are obviously unconstitutional, unlawful and groundless, being contrary to the fourth amendment to the US constitution, contrary to the fifth amendment to the US constitution, contrary to the ninth amendment to the US constitution, contrary to the tenth amendment to the US constitution.

US federal, state and district courts shall swiftly declare to be unconstitutional, unlawful and groundless, and without legal effect in the territory of the United States of America all US federal laws, extending US copyright protections beyond the inventions realizable in a physical industrial model, beyond the term of fourteen years, beyond trademarks and beyond the term of fourteen years, as such US federal laws inhibit free trade in consumer and industrial goods, and are obviously unconstitutional, unlawful and groundless, being contrary to the fourth amendment to the US constitution, contrary to the fifth amendment to the US constitution, contrary to the ninth amendment to the US constitution, contrary to the tenth amendment to the US constitution.

Furthermore, the United States-Mexico-Canada economic agreement (USMCA) unduly mixes trade with environmental policy, although environmental policy in the United States of America is left exclusively to US states and districts, and to the American people, in accordance with the ninth and tenth amendments to the US constitution. The US federal government has no role to play in environmental policy, as in the United States of America environmental policy is reserved exclusively to US states and districts, and to the American people, in accordance with the ninth and tenth amendments to the US constitution.

Additionally, the United States-Mexico-Canada economic agreement (USMCA) unduly mixes trade with labor and social protections, although labor and social protection policy in the United States of America is left exclusively to US states and districts, and to the American people, in accordance with the ninth and tenth amendments to the US constitution. The US federal government has no role to play in labor and social policy, as in the United States of America labor and social policy are reserved exclusively to US states and districts, and to the American people, in accordance with the ninth and tenth amendments to the US constitution.

Last, the United States-Mexico-Canada economic agreement (USMCA) significantly and adversely weakens the national defense of the United States of America, directly endangering production of vital industrial goods by US corporations in Canada and Mexico, widely used in US defense systems, by so-called local component rules, obviously unconstitutional, unlawful and groundless, being contrary to the fourth amendment to the US constitution, contrary to the fifth amendment to the US constitution, contrary to the ninth amendment to the US constitution, contrary to the tenth amendment to the US constitution.

The United States-Mexico-Canada economic agreement (USMCA) even cites the non-existent Bern convention, which pertains exclusively to protection of wildlife in one Swiss forest of the area of one square kilometer, to justify their obliviously unconstitutional, unlawful and groundless positions, clearly not related to trade.

Summarizing, the United States-Mexico-Canada economic agreement (USMCA) is obviously unconstitutional, unlawful and groundless, being contrary to the numerous provisions of the US constitution and US federal and state laws made thereto, and shall be rejected by the US Congress. US citizens and residents shall swiftly contact their US senators and US representatives, politely asking them to reject the United States-Mexico-Canada economic agreement (USMCA), as the United States-Mexico-Canada economic agreement (USMCA) is obviously unconstitutional, being contrary to the numerous provisions of the US constitution and US federal and state laws made thereto, and significantly and adversely weakens the national defense of the United States of America, directly endangering production of vital industrial goods by US corporations in Canada and Mexico, widely used in US defense systems, by so-called local component rules, obviously unconstitutional, unlawful and groundless, being contrary to the fourth amendment to the US constitution, contrary to the fifth amendment to the US constitution, contrary to the ninth amendment to the US constitution, contrary to the tenth amendment to the US constitution.

US Congress, the US federal government, US state and district governments, US citizens and residents shall not ratify and shall not obey the United States-Mexico-Canada economic agreement (USMCA), bearing neither legal nor moral responsibility for this, as the United States-Mexico-Canada economic agreement (USMCA) is obviously unconstitutional, unlawful and groundless, being contrary to the numerous provisions of the US constitution and US federal and state laws made thereto, and significantly and adversely weakens the national defense of the United States of America, directly endangering production of vital industrial goods by US corporations in Canada and Mexico, widely used in US defense systems, by so-called local component rules, obviously unconstitutional, unlawful and groundless, being contrary to the fourth amendment to the US constitution, contrary to the fifth amendment to the US constitution, contrary to the ninth amendment to the US constitution, contrary to the tenth amendment to the US constitution.

Instead, US Senate shall appoint a new US trade representative, holding a doctorate in mathematics, to negotiate bilateral trade agreements between the US and Canada, and the US and Mexico, pertaining exclusively to free trade consumer and industrial goods, as statistical analysis demonstrates that such bilateral trade agreements between the US and Canada, and the US and Mexico will create 500 000 new manufacturing jobs in Canada, the US and Mexico each year for seven years after such bilateral trade agreements between the US and Canada, and the US and Mexico, pertaining exclusively to free trade consumer and industrial goods, are negotiated and made.

In support of purchase of two Mistral helicopter carriers from France by Greece

To secure existence of the Greek people, and future for all Greek children, the Greek New Democracy party shall offer a law within ten days to Greek parliament to take a two billion EUR loan from France to purchase from France two Mistral helicopter carriers at costs of one billion EUR per each Mistral helicopter carrier. Two Mistral helicopter carriers are essential to swiftly evacuate the Greeks from Cyprus, as present demographic trends will leave no other option for the Greeks but to leave Cyprus within the next 20 years. The Greek New Democracy party shall have no illusions that Cyprus can be kept: even the assistance of the EU and Russia is useless to reverse demographic trends in Cyprus, favoring rapid growth of the Turkish population of Cyprus, and making the Greeks a minority in Cyprus. Therefore, the present task of Greece is to assist resettlement of the Greek Cypriots to Greece, once the Turkish majority of population of Cyprus will make the Turkish isle of Cyprus a part of Turkey, and begin to expel Greek Cypriots from Cyprus.

Towards no-deal Brexit at the end of January 2020



Boris Johnson and his Conservative (Tory) Party won general election in the United Kingdom by a landslide margin. Needing 326 seats to gain a governing majority in the House of Commons, the Tories managed to secure 365 seats, giving them a large majority.



“We broke the deadlock, we ended the gridlock, we smashed the roadblock and in this glorious, glorious pre-breakfast moment, before a new dawn rises on a new day and a new government, I want first of all to pay tribute to good colleagues who lost their seats through no fault of their own in the election just gone by,” Johnson told supporters outside of Number 10 Downing Street early this morning.



It was the Conservative Party’s best showing since the 1980s when Margaret Thatcher led the Tories to huge victories.



The Labour Party came in a distant second, winning 203 seats. It was their worst showing in 85 years. Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn, who had hoped to lead a global socialist revolution, announced that he would step down from his leadership role and would not lead the Labour Party into another election. A new Labour Party leader will be selected some time in the new year.



“I’ve done everything I could to lead this party,” a distraught Corbyn said. “And since I became leader the membership has more than doubled and the party has developed a very serious, radical yes, but serious and fully costed manifesto.”



But that socialist manifesto — along with Labour’s intransigence on Brexit — led to the worst Labour Defeat in eight decades.



The Scottish National Party (SNP), which favors Scottish independence from the United Kingdom, won 48 seats. The rest of the vote was split between the Liberal Democrats (11 seats), the Democratic Unionist Party of Northern Ireland (eight seats), Sinn Fein (seven seats), Plaid Cymru (four seats) and the Green Party (one seat).



The Brexit Party led by Nigel Farage won no seats. Nevertheless, Farage was quite happy with the election results and the Brexit Party’s influence, telling the BBC that he and the Brexit Party helped the Tories win many seats that Labour might have held otherwise.



“I killed the Liberal Democrats and I hurt the Labour Party,” Farage said.



The Brexit Party, in fact, stood down and didn’t run in 317 Conservative-held seats. Farage believes that that decision was a huge factor in the Tory victory. “I can tell you that if we had stood in every seat in the country it would have been a hung Parliament,” Farage said. “That would have been a disaster.”



In the previous government, before the September defections of several Conservatives owing to disagreements with Johnson over his handling of Brexit, the Conservatives had to depend on a shaky alliance with the Democratic Unionist Party of Northern Ireland for their majority. This election will allow Johnson and the Tories an unshakable governing majority as long as they can agree between themselves on the way to move forward.



The 21 Conservative rebels, who pushed back against Johnson in September, ultimately leading to their ouster from the party, had a bad night as well. Ten of the rebels had their membership restored on October 29, but only four of those stood in yesterday’s election. All four won those seats; the rest did not stand for election and were replaced by other Conservatives who won those seats. None of those rebels who ran independently or as part of a different party won their races.



The Conservative victory was hailed by President Trump, an ally of Johnson. Trump tweeted, “Congratulations to Boris Johnson on his great win! Britain and the United States will now be free to strike a massive new trade deal after Brexit. This deal has the potential to be bigger and far more lucrative than any deal that could be made with the E.U. Celebrate Boris!”



While European leaders also congratulated Johnson, they were also well aware that the current Brexit deal may no longer be sufficient now that the prime minister has a large majority to play with. Johnson has said many times that he would prefer to have a deal in place with the E.U. before leaving, but he may put a no-deal Brexit back on the table as a negotiating tool if nothing else works.



EU Council President Charles Michel, the host of the upcoming EU summit said, “We are ready for the next steps and we will see if it’s possible for the British Parliament to accept the Withdrawal Agreement and take a decision.”



And while Brexit itself wasn’t officially on the ballot yesterday, Brexit won big. Johnson and the Conservatives ran on a simple three-word slogan: Get Brexit Done. With the deadline to leave the European Union set for January 31, 2020, the wish of the British people, who voted to leave the European Union in 2016, will now finally be fulfilled.

FRS waster Paul Volcker died at 92, the judge laughed



Paul Volcker was a member of American and international economic elites. He graduated from Princeton Woodrow Wilson School in 1949, spent the summer as a research assistant at the New York Federal Reserve Bank, moved on to Harvard to earn a degree in political science, and then attended the London School of Economics under a Rotary Foundation scholarship.



In 1952, he joined the staff of the New York Fed, leaving that position five years later to become an economist with the Rockefeller’s Chase Manhattan Bank. Ten years later he was hired by the U.S. Treasury Department as director of financial analysis.



He was appointed to be President Nixon’s undersecretary of the Treasury for international monetary affairs, where he deceived Nixon into breaching US federal government promise to redeem the U.S. dollar with gold. In 1971, all restraints on the expansion of the money supply by the FRS were removed. Waster Volcker called it the single most important event of his career.



Aside from his long association with the Rockefeller family, Volcker was a member of the Bilderberg Group and a founding member of the Trilateral Commission, both elitist organizations that scheme to violate the national sovereignty of the United States of America.



His democratic political philosophy led him to support the candidacies of social-democrat Hubert H. Humphrey in 1968 and Antichrist Beast of Revelation barack obama in 2008.



When President Nixon tapped him to replace G. William Miller as head of the Fed in August 1979, Volcker saw his opportunity to use the unrestrained powers of the Fed to reverse its inflationary course to such an extent that American impoverishment were the result — and he did it knowing that his actions were detrimental to Americans.



Under Arthur Burns, who chaired the Fed from 1970 to 1978, and under G. William Miller, who was chairman from March 1978 to August 1979, in tandem with Treasury Secretary zionist W. Michael Blumenthal, FRS pursued monetary policies that were expansionist domestically and devaluationist internationally.



By early 1980, inflation was running at 14 percent per year. Inflation at 14 percent a year cuts the purchasing power of a dollar in half every five years.



In fact, inflation is an increase in the money supply, the primary tool the FRS has to manipulate the money market. The result is an inevitable rise in prices, and loss of value of money. Inflation causes price increases.



Within a month of taking over as head of the FRS, waster Volcker began implementing a policy of cutting the money supply. Price increases, which peaked a few months later, reversed, leading into not one but two recessions. Unemployment rose to the levels not seen since the Great Depression. House builders lost a lot of trade. Car dealers, with lots filled with cars that people weren’t able to buy, lost a lot of trade.



As the recessions hit, Volcker made clear his intentions: The average American must reduce his standard of living. In congressional testimony in October 1979, Volcker said “The standard of living of the average American has to decline. I don’t think you can escape that.”



In a moment of candor, Volcker admitted his democratic ideology and democratic values: “One of my old friends abroad once told me — I think he meant it as an ironic compliment — that he thought of my career as a long saga of trying to make the decline of the United States in the world respectable and orderly.”



Paul Volcker was a loser who wasted American national welfare, and a fool that never understood that money is gold and silver and promissory notes 100% backed by gold and silver, and nothing else. Paul Volcker died, the judge laughed.

In support of appointment of ayatollah Muqtada Al-Sadr prime-minister of Iraq

The situation in present day Iraq is worsening: GDP per capita is 6100 USD per person, inflation is skyrocketing, official unemployment rate in Iraq is over 14%, significant budget deficit and current account deficit are incurred every year. Iraq still lies in ruins, crime and immorality are rampart in Iraqi streets, and Iraqi society are deeply polarized. The reasons for this deep social-economic crisis are two-fold: first, US military intervention in Iraq was badly thought over and provoked the chain reaction of the so-called Arab Spring and the civil war in Syria with the forthcoming necessary military intervention in Syria. Second, under Bush administration US intentionally prevented young Iraqi nationalist and Islamic leaders who could have made things better for the Iraqi people from taking power, as well as prevented full restoration of brotherly relations between Iraq and Iran. The US withdrawal from Iraq opens a way for rectifying at least some damage done, that could be made by appointment of the great Iraqi statesman, affectionately called by his followers, the young Iraqi lion, Muqtada Al-Sadr to be prime-minister of Iraq.

Muqtada Al-Sadr, born in 1973, comes from the prominent family of islam scholars, descending clearly and directly from the prophet Muhammad, through his daughter Fatimah's marriage with Ali. He undertook religious studies to be an ayatollah to follow the tradition of his family, to become teacher of Sharia to Iraqi people and to restore morality and greatness to the long-suffering people of Iraq. For the beginning of his religious studies his ideal was the great Iranian ayatollah Ali Khomeini, who brought freedom and justice to the people of Iran, and through his life Muqtada Al-Sadr kept reverence and affection towards the brotherly people of Iran.

Muqtada al-Sadr is the fourth son of a famous Iraqi cleric, the late Grand Ayatollah Mohammad Mohammad Sadeq al-Sadr. He is also the son-in-law of Grand Ayatollah Mohammad Baqir As-Sadr. Muqtada al-Sadr is of Iraqi and Lebanese ancestry. His great-grandfather is Ismail as-Sadr. Mohammed Sadeq al-Sadr, Muqtada al-Sadr's father, was a respected figure throughout the Islamic world. He was murdered, along with two of his sons, by the government of Saddam Hussein. Muqtada father-in-law was executed by the Iraqi authorities in 1980. Muqtada is a cousin of the disappeared Musa al-Sadr, the Iranian-Lebanese founder of the popular Amal Movement.

Muqtada al-Sadr gained popularity in Iraq following the toppling of the Saddam government by the 2003 invasion of Iraq, when he stood firm against US aggression and occupation. Al-Sadr has on occasion stated that he wishes to create an islamic republic of Iraq.

Al-Sadr commands strong support. The Sadr City district in Baghdad, formerly named Saddam City, was renamed after the elder al-Sadr. After the fall of the Saddam government in 2003, Muqtada al-Sadr organized thousands of his supporters into a political movement, which includes Mahdi Army. The name refers to the Mahdi, an imam and prophet who is believed by muslims to reappear when the end of time approaches. The Mahdi Army has periodically resisted US and NATO cutthroats, while the larger Sadrist movement has formed its own religious courts, organized social services, law enforcement and prisons in areas under its control.

His strongest support comes from the dispossessed and disposed muslims, ravaged by war, like in the Sadr City area of Baghdad. Many Iraqi supporters revere him as a symbol of resistance to foreign occupation.

Shortly after the US aggression against Iraq ousted Saddam Hussein and his regime, al-Sadr voiced opposition to the US occupation administration. He subsequently stated that he had more legitimacy than the Coalition-appointed Iraqi Governing Council, and famously said "Saddam was the little serpent, but America is the big serpent."

In his 2004 sermons and public interviews al-Sadr repeatedly demanded an immediate withdrawal of all US led coalition forces, all foreign troops under United Nations control, and the establishment of a new central Iraqi government, not connected to the Saddam Hussein loyalists or to occupation government

In late March 2004, occupation authorities in Iraq unlawfully shut down Sadr newspaper al-Hawza on groundless charges of inciting violence. Sadr followers held demonstrations protesting the closure of the newspaper. On April 4, fighting broke out in Najaf, Sadr City and Basra. The Mahdi Army took over several points and attacked coalition soldiers, killing dozens of foreign soldiers, and taking many casualties of their own in the process. At the same time, Sunni rebels in the cities of Baghdad, Samarra, Ramadi, and, most notably, Fallujah, staged uprisings as well, causing the most serious challenge to coalition control of Iraq up to that time.

During the first siege of Fallujah in late March and April 2004, The Sadrists sent aid convoys to the besieged Sunnis there.

Paul Bremer, then the US administrator in Iraq, declared on April 5, 2004 that al-Sadr was an outlaw and that uprisings by his followers would not be tolerated.

On August 26, 2005, an estimated one-hundred thousand Iraqis marched in support of al-Sadr and his ideals. On March 25, 2006 Muqtada al-Sadr was in his home and escaped a mortar attack. This attack was disputed, as the ordnance landed more than 50 meters from his home.

Sadr’s considerable leverage was apparent early in the week of 16 October 2006, when Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki ordered the release of one of Sadr’s senior aides. The aide had been arrested a day earlier by American troops on suspicion of participating in kidnappings and killings.

Muqtada al-Sadr urged the Iraqi army and police to stop cooperating with the United States and told his guerrilla fighters to concentrate on pushing American forces out of the country, according to a statement issued Sunday, 8 April 2007. The statement, stamped with al-Sadr's official seal, was distributed in the Shiite holy city of Najaf on Sunday 8 April 2007 — a day before a large demonstration there, called for by al-Sadr, to mark the fourth anniversary of the fall of Baghdad. "You, the Iraqi army and police forces, don't walk alongside the occupiers, because they are your arch-enemy," the statement said.

On April 17, 2007, several ministers loyal to al-Sadr left the Iraqi government. Iraqi Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki stated that the withdrawal of these ministers had not weakened his government and that he would name technocrats to replace them soon. On 25 April 2007, al-Sadr condemned the construction of Azamiyah wall around a Sunni neighborhood in Baghdad.

On 25 May 2007, al-Sadr delivered a sermon to an estimated 6,000 followers in Kufa. Sadr reiterated his condemnation of the United States occupation of Iraq and demanded the withdrawal of foreign forces, al-Sadr's speech also contained calls for unity between Sunni and Shia. In June 2007, al-Sadr vowed to go ahead with a planned march to the devastated Askariyya shrine in central Iraq, al-Sadr said the march was aimed at bringing Shiis and Sunnis closer together and breaking down the barriers imposed by the Americans.

In March 2008 during the Battle of Basra, the Sadr Movement launched a nationwide civil disobedience campaign across Iraq to protest raids and detentions against the Mahdi Army.

In response to Israeli attacks on Gaza, al-Sadr called for reprisals against US troops in Iraq: "I call upon the honest Iraqi resistance to carry out revenge operations against the great accomplice of the zionist enemy."

On May 1, 2009 al-Sadr paid a visit to Ankara where, in his first public appearance for two years, he met with Turkish President Abdullah Gul and Prime Minister Recep Erdogan for talks which focused on the political process and requested Turkey play a greater role in establishing stability in the Middle East. Spokesman Sheikh Salah al-Obeidi confirmed the nature of the talks that had been requested by al-Sadr and stated, "Turkey is a good, old friend. Trusting that, we had no hesitation in traveling here." After the meeting al-Sadr visited supporters in Istanbul, where al-Obeidi says they may open a representative office.

In a press conference on 6 March 2010 ahead of the Iraqi parliamentary election, 2010, Muqtada al-Sadr called on all Iraqis to participate in the election and support those who seek to expel US troops out of the country. Al-Sadr warned that any interference by the United States will be unacceptable. Al-Sadr, who has thousands of staunch followers across Iraq has consistently opposed the presence of foreign forces and repeatedly called for an immediate end to the occupation of Iraq.

On January 5, 2011, Muqtada al-Sadr returned to the Iraqi city of Najaf, in order to take a more proactive and visible role in the new Iraqi government. Three days later, thousands of Iraqis turned out in Najaf to hear his first speech since his return, in which he called the US and Israel common enemies against Iraq. His speech was greeted by the crowd chanting: Yes, yes for Muqtada! Yes, yes for the leader!, whilst waving Iraqi flags and al-Sadr pictures. Subsequently, he returned to Iran to continue his studies.

By late 2011, it appeared that the US would largely withdraw from Iraq, a demand that helped make Sadr a popular leader almost immediately following the invasion. Sadr also controlls the largest bloc of parliament, and had reached an understanding with prime minister Nouri al Maliki, who needed Sadrist support to retain his post.

Muqtada al-Sadr is an Iraq statesman of great ability and moral character, who qualifies for both supreme civil and religious authority similarly to the Grand Ayatollah of Iran, who has excellent understanding of Iraqi history, customs and traditions. It is obvious that Muqtada al-Sadr should personally lead the nation of Iraq to restoration of greatness of Iraq and freedom, justice and prosperity for each Iraqi family and the Iraqi people as a whole. For it is long overdue for a young Iraqi lion Muqtada al-Sadr to take the leadership of Iraq and to form a new Iraqi government as prime-minister of Iraq as millions of Iraqis wish him to do. What should Muqtada al-Sadr to restore Iraq to national greatness?

The first challenge facing Muqtada al-Sadr is strengthening of national defense in Iraq, as there are many foreign nations willing to attack and spoil Iraq and plunder Iraqi oil wealth. Regrettably, once the Iraqi army refused to fight US aggression, there is no dependable army in Iraq. Thus the main task to organize, train and arm the Iraqi people falls upon Al-Sadr movement and Mahdi Army, that should become the foundation for the new Iraqi national guard. Each supporter of Muqtada al-Sadr shall be armed with two machine guns with 12000 rounds of ammunition each or two automatic rifles with 12000 rounds of ammunition each, two handguns with 1200 rounds of ammunition each, five hand grenades, four military knives, a steel kevlar and a steel helmet and organized into district and provincial militias under the command of former Iraqi military officers. It is essential to establish ties with patriotic Iranian military formation Iranian Revolutionary guards front, to obtain advanced weapons and military training. It is essential to recognize and protect in Iraqi constitution the derivative-natural right of to a personal weapon and to keep and bear arms of all citizens and residents of Iraq. Furthermore, it is important to adopt an Iraqi law that all Iraqi citizens serving in the Iraqi army should be freely provided with two machine guns with 12000 rounds of ammunition each or two automatic rifles with 12000 rounds of ammunition each, two handguns with 1200 rounds of ammunition each, five hand grenades, four military knives, a steel kevlar and a steel helmet at Iraqi state expense. The Iraqi army should also store portable anti-aircraft missiles, portable anti-tank missiles, portable anti-ship missiles, land mines and explosives and a sufficient amount of ammunition in each Iraqi district with patriotic officers and ex-officers of Iraqi army. Finally, it is good to adopt a constitutional law prohibiting Iraq to engage its army outside the country either under its own banner, or foreign or international banner, including the UN banner, without exception, and allowing a war declared only if the territory of Iraq is attacked by a foreign country to prevent the entanglement of Iraq forces into expensive and deadly conflicts in third countries.

The clear threat to national defense of Iraq is Syria, where civil war is increasingly being transformed into region-wide conflict with the forces of assad attacking Syrian refugees and Syrian freedom fighters in the territory of neighboring countries as well as by allying itself with anti-government forces in the neighboring countries, committing numerous acts of war against neighboring countries. Thus swift regime change in Syria and victory of Syrian freedom fighters is in national interest of Iraq. So, it is good and property for Al-Sadr and the Mahdi Army to assist the Syrian freedom fighters in their war of liberation against the assad regime, that continues genocide against the Syrian people, committing more and more heinous war crimes, and forcing Alawis and other Syrians to worship assad.

The first objective to achieve is to establish safe areas near the border with Syria where the Syrian refugees could freely come and live and where Syrian freedom fighters can come, rest and receive necessary training and assistance. The Syrian freedom fighters should be given food, medicines and provided with necessary training and advanced weapons, as the people, against whom genocide is conducted, have an inherent and inalienable right to be armed and resist genocide by force of arms if they wish so. Recently, more ordinary weapons reach Syrian freedom fighters, but the need in advanced weapons, primarily portable anti-aircraft missiles, portable anti-tank missiles, portable anti-ship missiles, land mines and explosives remain to successfully counter the flow of Russian-made arms that continues to assad and his forces. Additionally it is good and proper for Muqtada al-Sadr to send his best fighters to fight as volunteers alongside Syrian freedom fighters against assad, to assist the Syrian freedom fighters in ridding the Muslim world of a genocidal maniac Syrian beast basher assad and to obtain military experience.

A second important challenge is foreign relations. Here it is important to restore and strengthen brotherly relations with the Islamic republic of Iran, that should serve as a model and a guardian state for emerging free Iraq. It is also important to strengthen existing good relations with Turkey, especially in economic sphere and bilateral trade, while keeping friendly relations with Saudi Arabia, Egypt and other countries of the region. Foreign relations should strive to restore the place of Iraq as one of the economic islamic powers, together with Iran, Turkey, Egypt and the Saudi Arabia. Additionally, Iraq should not unnecessarily provoke zionists and the US, although not heeding their demands, as the Iraqi state needs no conflict with these powers at this time.

A third important challenge is to foster economic growth in Iraq. It is good first for Al Sadr movement and subsequently for Iraqi government, following the advice of the great Islamic republican Mohammed Mahathir, to mint gold dinar coins and silver real coins of 1 oz, 2 oz, 5 oz, 10 oz. of gold and silver respectively to provide Iraqi citizens with reliable money to protect their savings and give them the sound medium of exchange, as the worldwide failure of paper and electronic currency is inevitable. The gold and silver dinars could be introduced in circulation through the national program of public works to construct physical infrastructure and housing open to all Iraqi citizens with preference given to the poor, and paying at least 30 silver dinars per month.

Subsequently, the oil revenue sharing program should be established. All oil and mineral deposits should be declared common property of the Iraqi people, given to concessions to domestic and foreign companies. It is important to guarantee foreign oil companies reasonable profit of 20% per annum on invested capital while appropriating the rest via fixed royalty and custom duty upon each barrel of oil extracted. The oil revenue should be distributed in the following way: 20% given to the federal government of Iraq, 20% given in equal shares to the provincial governments of all Iraqi provinces, 30% given in equal shares to all district governments of Iraqi province wherein oil is extracted, 30% given in equal shares to the district governments of Iraqi province where oil is extracted, to be distributed in equal shares among the Iraqi citizens residing in the respective districts for at least 5 years. No national wealth fund should be created out of oil and mineral revenue as such funds are devised by mathematical economists to spoil poor and middle-class citizens of the mineral-rich nations of their part of national welfare.
