Trump set to reimpose all nuclear sanctions on Iran

ㅤ"Secretary of State Mike Pompeo confirmed in a call with reporters that the administration will grant waivers to eight ‘jurisdictions’ when it reimposes oil and gas sanctions on Monday.
ㅤ’This part of the campaign about which we’re speaking today is simple: It is aimed at depriving the regime of the revenues that it uses to spread death and destruction around the world,’ Pompeo said.
ㅤ’We expect to issue some temporary allotments to eight jurisdictions, but only because they have demonstrated significant reductions in crude oil and cooperation on many other fronts and have made important moves toward getting to zero crude oil importation.’"

Strange how Facebook allowed this foreign influence to go on, but shuts down American voices routinely…

Facebook on Friday deleted 82 pages, groups and accounts that it determined were part of an online influence operation located in Iran.

The Iranians operated 30 Facebook pages, 33 individual accounts and three groups, as well as 16 accounts on Facebook-owned Instagram, Facebook head of cybersecurity policy Nathaniel Gleicher said in a statement Friday.

The pages had over a combined 1 million followers and the groups had more than 25,000 members, Gleicher said.

Facebook provided several examples of the Iranian propaganda, which promoted former National Football League (NFL) quarterback Colin Kaepernick’s activism while criticizing President Donald Trump and Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh.

ㅤReligious zealots have always been the most dangerous people on the planet. Mutual assured destruction isn’t likely to work with Islamic nations. It might work with North Korea, as it has with Russia and China.

Why We Need John Bolton as NSA

WHY WE NEED JOHN BOLTON AS NSAㅤp02article020557wp.png

ㅤ”Last week ex-CIA chief Michael Hayden signed a letter with a ‘bipartisan group of 115 national security leaders’ that counsels the Trump administration and new National Security Advisor John Bolton not to jettison the nuclear deal with Iran. Hayden’s justification for this advice illustrates all the stale ideas and unexamined assumptions about foreign affairs that have brought us to this crisis in the first place––and why we need the return to realism we are likely to see with Bolton at the helm.”

The Iran that Obama helped keep in place

ㅤ”The incompetent, insecure, and malevolent government has, characteristically, resorted to shooting protesters. It is unsurprising, just as it is nevertheless shocking, that a regime which operates a global network of murder, and which foments and funds terrorism throughout its neighborhood, should lack compunction about mistreating and, if it thinks it efficacious, killing its citizens.
ㅤThese events invite retrospection here in America. They demand further scrutiny of the nuclear deal that former President Barack Obama struck with Tehran in his hapless attempt to build a legacy of foreign policy competence. The deal, sold to the public with optimistic falsehoods, looks worse each day.”
