Iran rejects Trump´s call
for changes to nuclear deal

Al Jazeera News [Doha, Qatar], by Staff

Original Article

Posted By:LittleHoodedMonk, 1/13/2018 5:12:50 AM

Iran has said it will not accept any changes to the terms of the 2015 nuclear deal, after US President Donald Trump threatened to pull out of the agreement unless its "terrible flaws" are fixed. (Snip) Trump said four "critical components" must now be worked into the agreement: immediate inspections at all sites requested by international inspectors, measures to ensure Iran "never even comes close to possessing a nuclear weapon", no policy "expiration date", and no distinction between the Islamic Republic´s long-range missile and nuclear weapons programmes regarding the imposition of sanctions.

Finally, President Trump has stated what must be done by Iran or he will withdraw "finally" in four months from 0bama´s treasonous deal. Like the Palestinian Authority that refuses to ever acknowledge Israel while "negotiating" for time, Iran is doing similar till they obtain their nuclear desires. This sounds like a "red line" in the sand, so stay tuned. With Russia as their "patron", why would they needs nukes that would destabilize the Middle East?

"Trump’s Demand to Rewrite Iran Deal Tests a Weakened Diplomatic Corps"


FTA: "The nuclear deal, Mr. Trump said, drove Iranians into the streets because the government misused the proceeds from the lifting of sanctions. “It has served as a slush fund for weapons, terror and oppression, and to further line the pockets of corrupt regime leaders,” he said in a statement. But that is precisely why European leaders argue that keeping the deal in place makes even more sense now: because it keeps a harsh spotlight on Iran’s leaders, and their malfeasance, rather than allowing the Iranians to paint the United States and its allies as the villains."

Also throwing North Korea into the mix, the New York Times continues to be a cheerleader against President Trump and his State Department by disparaging them as they walk a nuclear tightrope.

The choice is not up to Mullah Mophead. Bathhouse Barry made an illegal and treasonous deal and we can pull it at any time, including destroying all of their nuclear facilities.

Once again, while not ´Ivy League´ articulate, or acceptable to the Upper East side UN leeches, DJT seems to have manuevered the Mullahs into a corner. Do you want to support the Revolution in Iran that the Hawaiian and Hillary would not? Here´s how you do it? Trump is looking better every day!

Senator Rand Paul of Kentucky has sued a neighbor who attacked him in his front yard last year, seeking damages to compensate for “physical pain and mental suffering.” Mr. Paul, a Republican, filed the lawsuit against his neighbor, Rene A. Boucher, 60, of Bowling Green, Ky., on Friday, one week after Mr. Boucher was sentenced to 30 days in prison for the attack. Mr. Boucher, a retired anesthesiologist, pleaded guilty to a federal felony charge of assaulting a member of Congress. The attack last November resulted in several broken ribs and precipitated a recurrent case of pneumonia, keeping Mr. Paul out of work in Washington

Seoul - The third summit between China and North Korea in less than three months on Tuesday highlighted Beijing´s increasing efforts to remain a key player in the fluid geopolitics of the Korean Peninsula and strengthen its hand amid friction with the United States, analysts said. (Snip) "What matters most in Tuesday's summit for China is to maintain its influence and role in the changing contours of security and geopolitics on the peninsula and in Northeast Asia, when the two Koreas and the U.S. appear to be overseeing the change," said Kim Han-kwon, a China expert at the Korea National Diplomatic Academy.

The FBI had little problem leaking “unverified" dirt from Russian sources on Donald Trump and his campaign aides – and even basing FISA wiretaps on it. But according to the Justice Department’s inspector general, the bureau is refusing to allow even members of Congress with top security clearance to see intercepted material alleging political interference by President Obama’s attorney general, Loretta Lynch. That material – which has been outlined in press reports – consists of unverified accounts intercepted from putative Russian sources in which the head of the Democratic National Committee allegedly implicates the Hillary

White House press secretary Sarah Sanders is expected to receive Secret Service protection as soon as Wednesday, two sources familiar with the decision tell CNN, but they did not specify how long it will last. The Secret Service declined to comment, telling CNN: "For operational security purposes the Secret Service does not comment on its protective operations." The news comes days after Sanders was asked to leave a small Lexington, Virginia, restaurant because of her role with the Trump administration, a move that has since sparked a national conversation on civility and public service in the age of Trump.

Sen. Jeff Flake told CNN Tuesday he will lift the extraordinary holds he put on all of President Donald Trump´s appeals court nominations if he gets a vote on legislation that could make it harder for Trump to use national security as a reason to impose tariffs on other countries, as the President recently did against Mexico, Canada and the European Union. "I want a vote on tariffs, a serious vote on tariffs," said Flake, who like many free-trade Republicans on Capitol Hill has spoken out against Trump´s use of tariffs to punish other countries for what he describes as unfair trade practices.

Vienna - Feel like the world is going to the dogs? Want to get away from it all? Here’s a solution: become a citizen of the nation of Asgardia and hope it makes good on its promise to colonize the moon. Asgardia was founded just 20 months ago, and it already has about 200,000 citizens, a constitution and an elected parliament. It has a leader, Igor Ashurbeyli, who was inaugurated on Monday. It also has grandiose ambitions. It wants to build up a population of 150 million within 10 years. It plans to set up “space arks” with artificial gravity in outer space where humans could live permanently.

A couple of years ago, as Brian Brackeen was preparing to pitch his facial recognition software to a potential customer as a convenient, secure alternative to passwords, the software stopped working. Panicked, he tried adjusting the room’s lighting, then the Wi-Fi connection, before he realized the problem was his face. Brackeen is black, but like most facial recognition developers, he’d trained his algorithms with a set of mostly white faces. He got a white, blond colleague to pose for the demo, and they closed the deal. It was a Pyrrhic victory, he says: “It was like having your own child not recognize you.”

Washington - The consequences of President Trump’s nomination of Neil M. Gorsuch to the Supreme Court — and the Republican blockade of President Obama’s nomination of Merrick B. Garland in 2016 for that seat — reverberated powerfully on Tuesday as the court’s conservative majority handed down major decisions on Mr. Trump’s travel ban and on abortion rights. Social conservatives cheered the court’s ruling that a California law requiring “crisis pregnancy centers” to provide abortion information likely violates the First Amendment, their latest win to advance their anti-abortion cause since Mr. Trump has taken

Dubai, UAE - Iran is banning imports of over 1,300 products, preparing its economy to resist threatened US sanctions, amid rare public protests against the plunge of its currency to record lows. Police patrolled the Grand Bazaar in Tehran, Iran, on Monday as security forces struggled to restore normality after clashes with protesters angered by the collapse of the country´s currency, the Iranian rial, which is disrupting business by driving up the cost of imports, witnesses said. Traders from the bazaar, whose merchants supported Iran’s 1979 Islamic revolution, told Reuters by telephone that most shops remained closed.

President Donald Trump is attacking Harley-Davidson for planning to shift some of its motorcycle production overseas. Harley says it stands to lose as much as $100 million a year from new European Union taxes on motorcycles that it would ship from the United States. The EU raised its 6% tariff to 31% last week in response to the Trump administration´s tariffs on steel and aluminum imports from Europe. In a series of tweets Tuesday morning, Trump said Harley is using the European retaliatory tariffs as "an excuse" for moving manufacturing abroad. Trump, echoing a top union for Harley workers, claims the company

Rep. Jim Jordan appeared on Fox News for an interview with Bret Baier, who grilled him on the allegations that he ignored sexual abuse when he was a wrestling coach at Ohio State. Jordan, a Republican member of the House Freedom Caucus who coached wrestling at Ohio State from 1986 to 1994, denied any knowledge of alleged abuse by the team’s doctor, Richard Strauss, who died in 2005. Baier played a video of Mike DiSabato — one wrestler who has appeared on CNN repeatedly to accuse Jordan of knowing about the abuse — claiming talk of the abuse was frequent

The messages convey a sense of urgency, and are coming with increasing frequency. They are short, focused reactions to the latest “outrage” committed by President Trump. Some end by asking for money, some urge participation in protests. All read as if they are sent from the official headquarters of the resistance. Hillary Clinton is up to something. Five times in the last month alone, she sent e-mails touting her super PAC’s role in combating President Trump.

Mitt Romney spoke out against "trade wars" on Friday after President Trump imposed tariffs on $34 billion of Chinese imports, prompting Beijing to respond with its own tariffs on U.S. goods. “Trade wars are a tax on Americans. They have severe consequences for many employers and inevitably cost Americans jobs,” the Utah GOP Senate hopeful said in a statement. Romney said trade wars are particularly punishing for agriculture, which is a sector in Utah the former GOP presidential contender said is “already under duress from wildfire, drought, and challenging public land policies.” “Our national objective should be to open new markets, negotiate free

President Trump raised eyebrows Thursday night when he criticized the "thousand points of light" slogan coined by former President George H.W. Bush. During his speech at a rally in Montana, Trump said "thousand points of light" was a lesser slogan than his motto, Make America Great Again. "What the hell was that, by the way, thousand points of light? What did that mean? Does anyone know?" Trump asked the crowd. "I know one thing: Make America Great Again we understand.

Deutch also said that there are efforts underway to require gun manufacturers to incorporate smart technology in firearms but that the NRA is standing in the way. “Yes, there are absolutely efforts. The technology has advanced where we’ve seen this kind of technology using guns,” Deutch said during a conference call briefing with the Jewish Democratic

June 2018 was an especially bad month for the status of Muslims in America. First, we learned that a new study showed that many Americans view Muslims in the United States as insufficiently “American,” and almost 20 percent would deny Muslim citizens the right to vote. Then, the Supreme Court upheld President Donald Trump’s decision to institute a ban on immigrants, refugees and visa holders from five majority-Muslim countries in a 5-4 decision. The synergy of these two pieces of information is critical because it reveals a common attitude that Muslims pose a threat to U.S. security whether they are

This is the land of opportunity, and anyone who wants the come here can…legally. That’s not the issue. It’s whom we incentivize to enter legally. For the Trump White House, it’s been their stated position to gear our immigration policy to allowing more high-skilled workers into this country. As for the families of the low-skilled working immigration population in the country, 51 percent (76 percent counting immigrant-led households with children) are collecting some sort of check from our welfare services.
