America's Only Choices: Jewish Communism or Jewish Zionism

The article below is a reminder that George Soros pushed through the Iran nuclear deal much to the consternation of Benjamin Netanyahu. Trump came to his rescue. Trump announced his candidacy in June 2015, just as Iran was being finalized. The only reason Americans got an alternative to Clinton was due to this schism in World Jewry between Communists and Zionists. The Communists, led by George Soros, and fronted by Obama and Clinton, represent the disintegration of the nation-state, including Israel. The nationalists led by Netanyahu and fronted by Trump represents a handful of powerful nation-states dominated by Israel. This is a disagreement between Masonic lodges. In Trump, Americans are getting the crumbs from Israel's table.

Risking World War For Israel:Series of articles.

Those who cry wolf over the deal and want to attack Iran are only following the diktats of the Israeli terrorist-in-chief Benjamin Netanyahu. After all, he’s their god and whatever he says goes – that’s the only explanation for their idiotic stand. Watch this video of Netanyahu lambasting Iran in the US Congress, or not – after all, who can stand to watch that demonic and arrogant cad ordering the US around.

Consequently, when the Middle East is set ablaze and millions of people lose their lives, the world will know who to haul at The Hague for crimes against humanity.

Iran's supreme leader attacks Trump's '10 lies' and says 'America can't do a damn thing' as politicians set FIRE to US flag, chant 'Death to America' and vow to keep spending on ballistic missiles amid fallout over nuclear deal

Iran's Supreme Leader has warned 'America can't do a damn thing' as politicians burned a US flag in parliament in the wake of Donald Trump's withdrawal from the 2015 nuclear deal.

Without elaborating, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei accused the US President of '10 lies' during his explosive annoucement yesterday and warned his country not to trust America, Britain, France and Germany.

His comments came as Iranian politicians chanted 'death to America', set fire to a US flag and a symbolic copy of the Iran deal and vowed to continue spending on the country's ballistic missile program.

Iran implementing commitments under JCPOA: UN watchdog

The United Nations’ nuclear watchdog says Iran is honoring its commitments under the nuclear agreement it reached with world powers in 2015 a day after US President Donald Trump pulled Washington out of the landmark deal in defiance of international warnings.

The International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) issued a statement on Wednesday, reiterating that Iran is in full compliance with the terms of the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), a document that came out of years of negotiations between Iran on one the side and six world powers, namely the US, Russia, China, Germany, France, Britain, on the other, in July 2015.

“As of today, the IAEA can confirm that the nuclear-related commitments are being implemented by Iran,” said a statement by Yukiya Amano, director general of the Agency, which is tasked with monitoring the technical aspect of the JCPOA’s implementation.

Iran says will quit nuke deal without European guarantees

Iran's supreme leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei said Wednesday that Tehran would quit the landmark 2015 nuclear deal unless European signatories offered solid guarantees that trade relations would continue after the U.S. withdrawal.

Addressing Iran's government in a televised speech, Khamenei said: "We hear that you want to continue the nuclear deal with the three European countries. I don't have confidence in these three countries."

"If you don't succeed in obtaining a definitive guarantee - and I really doubt that you can - at that moment, we cannot continue like this," he said.

"If you want to conclude an agreement, obtain real guarantees, otherwise tomorrow they will do the same as the United States."

Israel Attacks Syria Less Than an Hour After Trump Speech

Israel continues to talk up an expected war with Iran on Tuesday, opening bomb shelters in the country’s north, and carrying out yet another round of attacks on alleged Iranian targets inside Syria.The attacks centered on a base near Damascus, which Israeli media claims belongs to the Iranian Revolutionary Guard

The timing of this attack is particularly noteworthy. The strike began within an hour of the end of President Trump’s speech withdrawing the US from the Iran nuclear deal. Israeli officials have been envisioning the end of the deal leading to regime change in Iran, and have also advocated a war to impose regime change.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

... so long as the Americans do the actual fighting, of course!

Europeans Warn US Not to Block Them From Staying in Iran Deal

Britain, France, and Germany have issued statements following President Trump’s withdrawal from the P5+1 nuclear deal, warning the US that they must “avoid taking action which obstructs” the rest of the signatories from continuing with the deal.

Iran plans to stay in the deal, as do the other P4+1 nations. This involves substantial sanction relief for Iran and allowing Western businesses to trade with Iran. Though the US never really complied with this, European nations have tried to allow such deals, and don’t want the US to stop them.

Iran’s President Rouhani Responds to Trump Pulling Out of Iran Deal

May 09 08:06

Maybe Israel is interfering in our politics over the Iran Deal? Naaah!

For the last three years, Benjamin Netanyahu has been doing everything he can to sink the Iran deal, from speaking in Congress against the deal in 2015 with the support of Democrats who were defying President Obama on his signature foreign policy achievement, to sending his Defense Minister over to try to sink the deal, to cartoon presentations at the U.N., and a video lecture in English last week saying, Iran Lies. Netanyahu’s interference was so obtuse that Obama once said that Israel was the only country that was against the deal and it would be an “abrogation of my constitutional duty” if he didn’t push the Iran deal.

May 09 07:42

America’s Word Is Worthless

We can now dismiss all hope that Trump’s campaign promises to pull out of Syria, normalize relations with Russia and stop the offshoring of American jobs will ever become US policies. By dishonoring the US government’s word and pulling out of the Iran nuclear non-proliferation agreement, an agreement signed by the US, UK, France, Germany, Russia, China, and Iran, President Trump has revealed that his regime is totally in the hands of the Zionist warmongers.

IAEA Confirms Iran Fulfills Nuke-Related Commitments Despite US Exit From Deal

On May 8, US President Donald Trump announced that the United States would no longer remain part of the JCPOA and promised to re-impose the highest level of economic sanctions against Iran in response to Tehran's development of the nuclear program.

"Iran is subject to the world’s most robust nuclear verification regime under the JCPOA, which is a significant verification gain. As of today, the IAEA can confirm that the nuclear-related commitments are being implemented by Iran," IAEA Director General Yukiya Amano said Wednesday.

Announcing his decision to withdraw from the Iran nuclear deal, US President Donald Trump called the agreement a "horrible, one-sided deal that should have never, ever been made," and suggested that it was "defective at its core."

In Trump We Trust: Global Oil Prices Skyrocket as US Exits Iran Deal

Shortly after President Donald Trump announced that Washington was quitting the Iran nuclear deal, the US Treasury pledged to pursue efforts to significantly reduce purchases of Iranian crude oil.

The oil price has skyrocketed to its highest in more than three years, just 12 hours after President Donald Trump said that that the US is abandoning the "horrible and one-sided" Iran nuclear deal, also known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action, according to The Financial Times.

During early trading in London on Wednesday, Brent Crude, which serves as a major benchmark price for purchases of oil worldwide, increased by 3.1 percent to 77.20 dollars per barrel, while the US benchmark, WTI, rose by a similar amount, to 70.93. dollars per barrel.

So, the next time you fill up your car, you can thank Trump for the price hike!

Trump's Iran decision raises the stakes on North Korea

President Donald Trump's scrapping of the Iran deal he inherited raised the stakes for a North Korean agreement he hopes to build, a contradiction over two aspiring nuclear powers that pose the biggest foreign policy challenge yet for his administration.

The President didn't wait for his critics to link Iran and North Korea. He proudly made the connection himself, standing in the Diplomatic Reception Room on Tuesday, declaring: "Relationships are building. Hopefully a deal will happen."
And he announced that Secretary of State Mike Pompeo was flying to Asia for his second face-to-face meeting with North Korean officials, tasked with setting up a summit between Trump and Kim Jong Un.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The problem is that North Korea has been reminded (once again) that promises made by the United States cannot be trusted.

NUCLEAR CHUTZPAH

Standing in front of props of data files and cd's, Netanyahu claimed Israel's renowned Mossad spy agency had stolen a small mountain of secret Iranian nuclear data from a warehouse in Tehran. The never-understated Netanyahu claimed that the purloined material proved that Iran was lying about having halted its covert nuclear program and must not be trusted ... Netanyahu repeatedly warned the world about Iran's alleged nuclear arsenal while making no mention at all of Israel's own large, secret nuclear arsenal, which is believed to comprise of over 100 warheads, perhaps even several hundred, that can be delivered by aircraft, missiles and submarines ... Listening to Netanyahu accuse Iran of hiding secret nuclear facilities was pure pot calling the kettle black.

Trump’s decision to withdraw from Iran deal shows US unable to negotiate – Russian Foreign Ministry

Moscow is “deeply disappointed” by Washington’s decision to pull out from the Iranian nuclear deal, the Russian Foreign Ministry said. The step taken by the US is a “flagrant violation” of the international law, it added.

“The US once again acts contrary to the position of most countries while pursuing solely its own narrow selfish and momentary interests,” the Russian ministry said in a statement, following the announcement by Donald Trump that the US is pulling out the deal and imposing sanctions on Iran. Washington “flagrantly violates the international law,” the statement adds while drawing attention to the fact that “there are no reasons for disrupting” the deal.

May 09 07:30

Russian Foreign Ministry statement on developments around the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action on Iran’s nuclear programme

We are deeply disappointed by US President Donald Trump’s decision to unilaterally give up commitments to implement the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action on Iran’s nuclear programme (JCPOA) and to reinstate the US sanctions on Iran.

The JCPOA is a key multilateral agreement approved by the 2015 UNSC Resolution 2231. The Action Plan does not belong to the United States alone but is a domain of the entire international community, which has repeatedly reaffirmed its interest in the preservation and long-term sustainable implementation of the JCPOA for the sake of strengthening international and regional peace and security as well as the nuclear non-proliferation regime.

We are gravely concerned that the United States is acting once again in defiance of the opinions of the majority of states and exclusively out of its own narrow and opportunistic interests while grossly violating international law.

'US wants Iraqi-style regime change in Iran'

The US withdrawal from the nuclear deal with Tehran on Tuesday is the first step in the American plan for a regime change in Iran carried out in accordance with the Iraqi scenario, Middle East expert Sami Ramadani told RT.

“If one listens carefully to what Trump was saying, really, the US is not only withdrawing from this multilateral international agreement unilaterally – scrapping it, but it’s also, actually, threatening a regime change in Iran,” Ramadani said.

“The tone of his [Trump's] speech; the words he used are reminiscent of George Bush Jr’s speech” before the US-led the invasion in 2003 when “lies were used to launch a genocidal war against the people of Iraq,” he said. The expert noted that not only was the Iraqi regime overthrown due to the US' military involvement, but the whole country was “destroyed.” The US has been trying to destabilize Iran for decades, he said.

Trump lacks ‘mental capacities,’ Iran says after US pulls out of nuclear deal

The speaker of Iran’s parliament has offered a particularly scathing review of US President Donald Trump’s decision to pull the US out of the Iran nuclear deal, saying Trump does not have the “mental capacity” for his job.

Trump announced that he was withdrawing the United States from the landmark deal on Tuesday, sparking an avalanche of criticism from both sides of the political divide in America and also upsetting the international community, including US allies and Russia.

The speaker of Iran’s parliament, Ali Larijani, took a particularly dim view of the decision telling the Iranian assembly that: "Trump does not have the mental capacity to deal with issues.”

"Trump's abandoning of the nuclear deal was a diplomatic show… Iran has no obligation to honor its commitments under the current situation,” Larijani said. "It is obvious that Trump only understands the language of force.”

Wake Up to Trump, Distraction and War with Iran

Both Trump and Netanyahu paint Iran as the most dangerous terrorist state in the world. Really? It wasn't the Iranian regime that illegally cost over one million Iraqi civilian lives and blew that country apart ... So who is the aggressor here? Unlike Israel's many invasions and military incursions, Iran, a poor country, has not invaded any country for over 250 years. Iraq's dictator invaded Iran in 1980, with U.S. backing, costing Iran an estimated 500,000 lives. No country, save the U.S. Empire, has the chutzpah that Netanyahu possesses because he knows the U.S. government and the mass media will embrace his expanding push for U.S. militarism in the Middle East.

Europe DEPENDS on America! Merkel, May and Macron savaged for US criticism over Iran

Mr Trump said the agreement was “disastrous” and a “great embarrassment”, adding: “If we do nothing, we know exactly what will happen.

"In just a short period of time, the world's leading state sponsor of terror will be on the cusp of acquiring the world's most dangerous weapon.”

But European leaders quickly hit out at Mr Trump and in a joint statement, Theresa May, Emmanuel Macron and Angela Merkel labelled the decision a matter of “regret and concern” and would defy the US President in remaining committed to the deal.

Britain, France and Germany had made attempts to persuade the US President to preserve the deal - Mr Macron and Ms Merkel made trips to Washington over the past month, while Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson made a last-ditch trip over the weekend.

'Wind down operations NOW!' US orders Merkel to stop German firms working in Iran

Richard Grenell, US Ambassador to Germany, told Berlin to “wind down operations immediately” in the hours after the US President pulled his nation out of the agreement.

His comments are set to ruffle the feathers of Germany, where its Chancellor Angela Merkel has expressed “regret and concern” over Mr Trump’s decision.

Mr Grenell tweeted: “As @realDonaldTrump said, US sanctions will target critical sectors of Iran’s economy.

“German companies doing business in Iran should wind down operations immediately.”

Iran nuclear deal dilemma: Six steps to World War Three

"The elimination of the symbolic nuclear agreement with Iran from 2015 would open a Pandora's box - this could mean war," Macron told the German newspaper Der Spiegel. European leaders used to reject the position of the United States on the subject. These days, however, they are ready to consider a few aspects that the deal does not embrace, such as, for example, the development of ballistic missiles - a weapon designed to deliver nuclear bombs to their targets.

Dmitry Abzalov, President of the Center for Strategic Communications, told Pravda.Ru that Donald Trump would most likely torpedo the Iran deal on Saturday. "Trump has an aversion to Iran, and Mueller's investigation brings to light a few of those close to him. Secondly, Israel's Netanyahu actively supports Donald Trump. The two politicians will try to take advantage of the Iranian issue to switch public attention to questions of foreign, rather than domestic policies," the expert told Pravda.Ru.

Israel Setting The Stage To Attack Iran Over Phony Claims Of Iranian Missile Threats

By Brandon Turbeville

Over the past several days, Israel has been throwing its typical series of fits and tantrums both to its patron in Washington and to the “international community” that Iran may finally have the gall to defend itself. Of course, Iran’s possible actions are not presented as self-defense but as unjustified aggression and “hatred” of the settler state. Israel is typically declaring its right to “defend itself” but, in reality, that “defense” is nothing more than another act of offense in a long line of offenses against Iran.

Israeli media is now boosting up the idea that Iran is planning to launch missiles at Jerusalem as well as a coordinated attack against Israel with Hezbollah and “Shiites” in Syria as revenge for the numerous illegal attacks against Iran that Israel has undertaken in Syria over the last seven years...

BREAKING: 'SHOTS in Syria' as pro-Assad forces launch flares amid fear of second STRIKE

There are also unconfirmed reports of Israeli fighter jets flying over Jordan airspace amid fears there could be further strikes.

Syrian analyst Danny Makki said: “Still an expectancy that Israel may carry out further strikes on Syria this evening, strong air activity still in the area.”

It comes after an airstrike against Iranian targets following Donald Trump’s announcement he would withdraw from the Obama Iranian deal.

Sources in the area have said the Iranian-backed Hezbollah has called up reserves in south Lebanon following Israeli strikes.

It is at least the third attack since April 8 from Israel against Iranian assets in Syria.

Heavy Israeli overflights have also been reported.

US officials growing increasingly concerned Iran could attack Israel

There are increasing concerns Iran is on the cusp of an attack against Israel, several US military officials told CNN.

Intelligence is not clear on when an attack could come and what form it would take, they said, with one official noting that "if there is an attack it might not be immediately clear it's Iran."

The US is watching very closely to see if Iranian-backed actions could come from inside Syria or Lebanon, or even from inside Iran itself, though that would be considered a major military escalation.

Tehran Ready to Resume Its Nuclear Work Amid US Decision on Deal - Rouhani

Iranian President Hassan Rouhani has described the US decision to withdraw from the Iranian Nuclear Deal as "psychological warfare."

Tehran has fulfilled the obligations under the nuclear deal, while the United States has never done this, Iranian President Hassan Rouhani said Tuesday.

"Tonight we witnessed important historical experience. For the past 40 years we have been repeating that Iran is a country that is committed to its obligations, while the United States is a country that has never been committed to its obligations," Rouhani said in an address to the Iranian people following US President Trump's announcement of the US withdrawal from Iran nuclear deal.

Israel on Edge Over Possible Missile Attack by Iran After April Strike - Reports

Israeli security officials believe Iran may be preparing a missile attack in retaliation for the April 9 strike on Syria’s T-4 airbase, in which seven Iranians were killed.

Israeli media reported Sunday, citing defense officials, that Tel Aviv is bracing for possible missile strikes by Iran from sites inside Syria.

According to security personnel, Iran is likely to attempt a retaliatory missile attack against military targets in northern Israel following last month's strike on the T-4 base in Syria.

In Sept. 2012, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu of Israel shows an illustration as he describes his concerns over Iran's nuclear ambitions during his address to the 67th session of the United Nations General Assembly at U.N. headquarters.

Things to Know About Israel's Alleged Top-Secret Nuclear Program

Webmaster's Commentary: 

No, Iran is not going to haul off and attack Israel, either in Syria or Israel proper. It's government in Tehran is many things, but stupid is not one of them.

What Israel is attempting to do is create a false flag, to be blamed on Iran, as the justification for attacking it, and bringing it the US in on its side, militarily.

And unfortunately, Netanyahu's ventrilloquist dummy, here in the US, AKA President Trump, has just made it very painfully clear this morning, that the US's withdrawal from the P5+1, and the sanctions which will ensue, are the US government's prelude to a war against Iran.

Just because something isn't the most ham-fistedly, pig-headedly stupid thing the US government could do, is no guarantee that it will not do it, and President Trump's speech about the US withdrawing from the P5+1 deal, is no exception to this very dark reality. He is making claims about Iran's actions and capacities which bear absolutely no basis in reality.

The IAEA, which is staffed by amazinglingly bright people, has looked at the suspected facility, and said that there is no "there" there. And if that is what the IAEA is telling the world, I would very much tend to believe them. What Netanyahu and Trump are doing is tantamount to calling members of the IAEA, in their inspections of Iran's nuclear facilities, idiots and liers, and members of this organization is neither.

With a potential corruption indictment hanging over his head, Netanyahu is going to want to jump start this war as quickly as possible, which is most probably the reason President Trump made the decert announcement today, rather than wait until this coming Saturday, 12 May, which was the actual deadline.

Look for this war to generate the revival of the draft in this country, and this time, the US military will be coming after both our young women, as well as our young men. And here is how I see the forces lining up; China, Russia, and Iran on one side, with the US; NATO, Saudi Arabia, and Israel on the other. There is no way that this will be allowed to stay regional; my sense is, it will go global in a heartbeat.

Trump will announce plans to pull out of Iran nuclear deal despite pleas from European leaders

President Trump will announce Tuesday that he is withdrawing from the international nuclear deal with Iran and reimposing U.S. sanctions against Tehran, according to people familiar with the matter.

Trump’s decision, to be announced at the White House at 2 p.m., follows the failure of last-ditch efforts by Britain, France and Germany to convince him that his concerns about “flaws” in the accord could be addressed without violating its terms or ending it altogether.

Trump "Committed To Regime Change" In Iran: Giuliani

President Donald Trump is committed to regime change in Iran, said Rudy Giuliani, Trump's newest controversial attorney (although perhaps not for long) and longtime informal advisor.

Speaking to reporters after a Saturday keynote to the Iran Freedom Convention for Democracy and Human Rights in Washington, Giuliani said "We got a president who is tough, who does not listen to the people who are naysayers, and a president who is as committed to regime change as we are." In other words, pulling out of the Iran nuclear deal is now being conflated with regime change in Iran.

Giuliani says he's been a supporter of regime change for "ten years," that it's the only way to peace in the middle east, and that it's "more important than an Israeli-Palestinian deal."

POTUS Trump Puts John Kerry on Notice For His “Possibly Illegal Shadow Diplomacy” on Iran Nuclear Deal

The Boston Globe revealed last week John Kerry has been secretly engaging in unusual and most likely illegal shadow diplomacy with Iranian leaders in an effort to salvage the nuclear deal he helped craft.

He [John Kerry] sat down at the United Nations with Foreign Minister Javad Zarif to discuss ways of preserving the pact limiting Iran’s nuclear weapons program. It was the second time in about two months that the two had met to strategize over salvaging a deal they spent years negotiating during the Obama administration, according to a person briefed on the meetings.

John Kerry also reportedly met with French President Emmanuel Macron in both New York City and Paris.

Israel Threatens to Topple Assad If Iran Retaliates Over Recent Israeli Strikes

Israeli Energy Minister Yuval Steinitz, a member of the nation’s security cabinet, warned Israel would “topple” Syrian President Bashar Assad if Iran strikes Israeli territory. He said any Iran action would mean Assad’s “end and the end of his regime.”

There has been a flurry of speculation in the Israeli press that Iran would soon retaliate against Israeli territory. Israel has repeatedly attacked Syria in recent months, and has said those strikes are targeting Iranian military facilities. The Israeli assumption is that after so many attacks Iran is bound to try to do something about it.

So now Steinitz has decided he needs to threaten Syria over what Israel thinks Iran might do, based on what Israel has done against Iran inside Syria. Steinitz also claimed that Israel has “not intervened” in the Syrian War at all, despite dozens of Israeli airstrikes against Syrian military targets, and Israeli officials openly saying they prefer ISIS winning the war to Assad surviving.

Trump’s Iran strategy: Telling fibs and sowing fear

There has been so much noise surrounding Iran and the nuclear agreement, that we haven’t been able to listen to the most important thing in the past few days—the signs.

Since signing the nuclear deal, Iran hasn’t violated a single article of the agreement. This is being said not only by IAEA inspectors, but by Israeli security officials as well. This is the only fact President Donald Trump should have considered when deciding whether the United States should walk away from the deal, a move the Iranians say will immediately free Iran of its obligations to shelve its nuclear weapon programs.

Clearly, we would have been better off with a more extensive agreement, forcing Iran to halt its ballistic missile program and stop arming and inciting terror. But that’s not the issue: The agreement was signed to stop Iran from having military nuclear ability. And this goal has so far been achieved by the agreement.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

One needs to recall that Iran agreed to the JCPOA because they had already ceased trying to build nuclear weapons back in 2003. Hence, the cost of the deal was negligible for them. But adding in the long range missiles would have been a deal breaker.

Israel seeks Russian help in Syria. Will Russia oblige?

After threatening Moscow that if it went ahead with plans to strengthen Syria’s missile defence systems, Israel will destroy them on the ground – be it “S-300 or S-700”, as Israel’s Defence Minister Avigdor Liberman sarcastically put it – Tel Aviv is now seeking Russian help to calm things down. The dramatic turnaround is typical of Israel. Israel thinks it is a smart move, but will it work?

Lieberman now wants Moscow’s intervention to tamp down Israel’s tensions with Iran. Israel has painted itself into a corner. First it began taunting Iran to step up for a fight by firing missiles at locations in Syria where Iranian military advisers (IRGC personnel) could be present. In a strike on April 8, Israel drew blood, killing 7 Iranian personnel. The IRGC was not amused. Tehran vowed that Iranian retaliation is hundred percent certain but at a time, place and manner of its choice.

"The Israelis, Saudis and Beltway War Party want the deal trashed, because they want a U.S. clash with Iran. They are not afraid of war. Instead, they fear Trump will extricate us from the Middle East before we do our historic duty and effect regime change in Iran."

US leaving nuclear deal won’t hurt Iranian economy – Tehran

Iran's economy will be ready if US President Donald Trump decides to abandon the nuclear deal brokered in 2015, according to the country's central bank.

“We are prepared for all scenarios. If America pulls out of the deal, our economy will not be impacted,” the governor of Iranian Central Bank Valiollah Seif said on state television.

Saudi Arabia's Needs Have Become Iran's Problems

While Israel has been the barking dog pushing hostilities against Iran, it is the Saudis that are truly most threatened by Iran’s return to the global economy. They are as much, if not a bigger, agitator for tearing up the Iran Nuclear Deal as Israel has been.

A report earlier this week from the International Monetary Fund argued that Saudi Arabia still needs oil trading at $88 per barrel to balance its budget and pull off the structural reforms the country needs.

Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman’s Vision 2030 plan, which has the usual suspects in Washington salivating at the prospect of leaching off of, will require a complete make-over of Saudi society. It will likely cost trillions. And the Saudis still have a big budget deficit.

It is set to shrink to a more manageable 7% of GDP this year while expanding government spending by more than 5%.

Giuliani: Trump Will Kill Iran Nuclear Deal

Speaking this weekend at an anti-Iran conference, President Trump’s attorney Rudy Giuliani declared that the president would withdraw the US from the Iran nuclear deal. He went on to insist this would lead to regime change in Iran.

Giuliani held up a piece of paper meant to represent the Iran deal, yelling at the crowd “what do you think is going to happen to that agreement?” He ripped up the paper and then spat on it. President Trump has previously set an ultimatum of May 12 for withdrawing from the deal.

Giuliani went on to say that he’s been advocating a US-imposed regime change in Iran for longer than he can remember. He said this regime change was the key to Mideast peace, and “more important than an Israeli-Palestinian deal.”

Republican House Armed Services Chair Warns Trump Against Leaving Iran Deal

Speaking on Fox News Sunday, Rep. Mac Thornberry, the chairman of the House Armed Services Committee, warned it would be a mistake for President Trump to withdraw from the nuclear deal. Thornberry said he’d opposed the deal initially in 2015.

At this point, however, the chairman noted that losing the deal would greatly erode US leverage against Iran. He noted it would likely mean the end of inspector access to Iran facilities and cost the US visibility on Iran’s civilian nuclear program.

President Trump set a May 12 ultimatum for the deal to be changed, threatening to withdraw if that didn’t happen. With less than a week to go, European efforts to placate him don’t appear to have accomplished much.

Nuclear Chutzpah

Netanyahu repeatedly warned the world about Iran’s alleged nuclear arsenal while making no mention at all of Israel’s own large, secret nuclear arsenal, which is believed to comprise of over 100 warheads, perhaps even several hundred, that can be delivered by aircraft, missiles and submarines. Every Mideast nation can be hit by Israeli nukes as well as Russia, which some experts say is or was on Israel’s target list.

Trump, of course, made no mention of the awkward fact that Israel had stolen much of its nuclear technology and uranium from the United States, sometimes with the connivance of very senior US government officials. France, that paragon of world peace, had the rest.

Trump Lashes Out At John Kerry's "Possibly Illegal Shadow Diplomacy" With Iran

Following reports over the weekend that Obama's Secretary of State, John Kerry and a group of his former State Department officials, had been busy being unofficial diplomats in recent weeks, sneaking around the world trying to salvage the Iran nuclear deal he presided over, ahead of its May 12 renewal deadline, it appears President Trump has a few things to say about these actions.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Obviously I prefer the US remain in the Iran deal, but technically, Kerry has violated the Logan Act.

Israeli Operatives Who Aided Harvey Weinstein Collected Information on Former Obama Administration Officials

In June, 2017, Ann Norris, a former State Department official, received an e-mail containing an unusual proposal. Norris is married to Ben Rhodes, a former foreign-policy adviser to President Barack Obama and a prominent advocate of the Iran nuclear deal. In the e-mail, a woman who introduced herself as Eva Novak and claimed to work for a London-based film company called Shell Productions asked Norris to consult on a movie that she described as “ ‘All the President’s Men’ meets ‘The West Wing’ ”: it would follow the personal lives of “government officials in the positions that determine war and Peace” during times of geopolitical crisis, including “nuclear negotiations with a hostile nation.” Recalling the exchange, Ann Norris said that she found Eva Novak’s request “bizarre,” and that she “never responded.”

France, UK, Germany to Stick to Iran Deal Irrespective of US Decision

The foreign ministers of France, Germany and the United Kingdom have issued a joint statement, assuring that the EU would maintain the Iran nuclear deal, calling it the best way to avoid nuclear proliferation.

"We are determined to save this deal because this accord safeguards against nuclear proliferation and is the right way to stop Iran getting a nuclear weapon," French Foreign Minister Jean-Yves Le Drian told reporters in Berlin.

The corresponding position has been voiced by Foreign Minister Heiko Maas:

"We continue to believe that this agreement makes the world safer and without this agreement, the world would be less safe," Maas stated during a joint news conference with his French counterpart, adding that "a failure would result in an escalation."

Steinitz: 'If Assad continues allowing Iran to operate out of Syria, it will be his end'

Energy Minister and Cabinet member Yuval Steinitz said in a Ynet studio interview Monday that, "If Syrian President Bashar Assad continues allowing the Iranians to operate out of Syria, it would be the end of him, the end of his regime."

On the readiness of Israel's home front for a possible war in the north such an approach might lead to, Steinitz said there was "no absolute readiness."

It was reported Sunday that Iran may soon execute the retaliatory attack that it vowed to carry out in the wake of the airstrike on the T-4 Airbase near Homs, which has been attributed to Israel.

President Rouhani says Iran will stick to nuclear deal even if America pulls out – as long as the EU guarantees its commitment

President Hassan Rouhani said on Monday the United States would regret a decision to leave Iran's 2015 nuclear deal with world powers and Tehran would fiercely resist US pressure to limit its influence in the Middle East.

'If they want to make sure that we are not after a nuclear bomb, we have said repeatedly that we are not and we will not be ... but if they want to weaken Iran and limit its influence whether in the region or globally, Iran will fiercely resist,' Rouhani said in a speech broadcast live on state television.

President Trump has threatened to withdraw from the agreement when it comes up for renewal on May 12, demanding his country's European allies 'fix the terrible flaws' or he will re-impose sanctions.

But President Rouhani said it may be possible for the deal to go ahead without US involvement - providing the EU can guarantee Iran the same benefits.

Iran calls $6bn US court verdict a ‘mockery’ of justice, Americans & 9/11 attacks victims

Accusing Washington of attempts to “rewrite history,” Iran has firmly rejected as a “mockery” of the justice system the US court’s recent default ruling which ordered Tehran to pay over $6 billion in damages to 9/11 victims.

“Issuing such an absurd and unacceptable verdict mocks not only the international legal system but also the survivors and families of the victims of the September 11 attacks,” Iranian Foreign Ministry’s spokesperson Bahram Kasemi said Sunday, rejecting the New York court’s decision.

‘Who can trust the US, if bully Trump kills predecessor’s deals?’ – Iran’s national security chief

Tehran has the capacity to withstand Donald Trump’s “bullying,” but his drive to revise or unilaterally scrap the 2015 nuclear deal undermines any credibility Washington might still have, a top Iranian security official has noted.

“This is an international agreement ... and we certainly have the capacity to defeat your [Donald Trump's] bullying,” Rear Admiral Ali Shamkhani, secretary of Iran’s Supreme National Security Council (SNSC), told senior police commanders in Tehran on Saturday.

Iran, he stressed, refuses to renegotiate the crucial P5+1 nuclear agreement, also known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), noting that the country has no trust in the US leadership to honor its commitment.

'Pandora's Box': Macron Warns US Exit From Iran Nuclear Deal Might Mean War

A May 12 deadline is looming for US President Donald Trump to decide whether to scrap an internationally-brokered nuclear deal with Iran and re-impose sanctions on the Islamic Republic.

A potential US withdrawal from the 2015 Iran nuclear deal is fraught with the most negative scenarios and is hardly something to look forward to, French President Emmanuel Macron told the German weekly newsmagazine Der Spiegel.

“This means that we would open Pandora’s Box, which is tantamount to war. I don’t think [US President] Donald Trump wants war,” Macron said in an interview which appeared in Friday’s issue of the magazine.

During his visit to Washington last month President Macron tried to dissuade Donald Trump from walking away from the Iran nuclear agreement.

Even though Trump has threatened to quit the 2015 accord, he still said that he might go along with a European proposal to broker an add-on deal to cover Washington’s concerns about the agreement.

REVEALED: Trump team 'hired Israeli spy firm to collect dirt on Obama officials in an attempt to discredit Iran nuclear deal'

Aides to President Donald Trump reportedly contracted an Israeli private security firm to collect dirt on Obama administration officials and discredit the Iran nuclear deal.

The operation to 'get dirt' on Barack Obama's former staffers Ben Rhodes and Colin Kahl was launched last May, according to unnamed sources and documents cited by UK newspaper The Observer.

The sources said that officials linked to Trump's team contacted Israeli investigators just days after Trump visited Tel Aviv a year ago, his first foreign trip as US president.

The goal was apparently to discredit the Iran nuclear deal framework, which Trump has repeatedly threatened to scuttle ahead of a key May 12 deadline for certifying Iran's compliance.

Iran ignites World War 3 FEARS with plans to SCRAP nuclear deal and DEVELOP weapons

Iran has vowed to restrict inspector access to its nuclear sites if Donald Trump pulls the US out of the agreement next week, according to a senior Iranian official.

They added that Tehran is believed to have drawn up various possible responses if Donald Trump refuses to extend a waiver on US sanctions on May 12.

Iran is considering resuming enrichment of uranium to 20 percent.

They are also considering ceasing to grant International Atomic Energy Agency inspectors access to Iranian nuclear sites.

Things to Know About Israel's Alleged Top-Secret Nuclear Program

During an internationally-televised speech, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu accused Iran of lying about its nuclear program after signing the 2015 deal – his remarks have prompted speculations over Tel Aviv’s alleged possession of weapons of mass destruction.

Israel is widely suspected of possessing weapons of mass destruction, supposedly developed in 1948-1949, with an estimated arsenal of up to 400 warheads. Despite the fact that Mordechai Vanunu, a former worker at the Israeli Dimona nuclear reactor, blew the whistle on Tel Aviv’s nuclear program in 1986, Israel still maintains a policy of “nuclear ambiguity” – never denying or admitting to having nuclear arms.

UN Secretary General Warns Scrapping Iran Deal Could Lead To "World War III"

UN Secretary General Antonio Guterres offered a chilling message to the world during a recent interview with BBC Radio: The risk of "World War III" breaking out in the Middle East is intensifying at an alarming rate.

As we've previously speculated, the combatants in the conflict that Guterres envisions would be the US, Israel and Saudi Arabia on one side, aided by some of their allies in Western Europe, and China, Russia and Iran on the other. What's worse, Guterres warned that the collapse of the Iran deal could be the catalyst for a military conflict that morphs into the next global confrontation.

Hoisting the false flag

BRAVE GUATEMALAN air force pilots rebelled against a leftist regime in 1954 and used their planes to bomb the regime’s bases. Army commanders also rebelled; Guatemalans could hear them directing troop movements over the radio. Finally these patriots won their revolution. The United States trumpeted their victory around the world.

This was a “false flag” operation — staged by one force but made to look as if someone else did it. Planes that bombed targets in Guatemala were painted with Guatemalan air force insignia, but the pilots were CIA contractors. Radio messages about troop movements had been pre-recorded at a CIA base in Florida. A revolution that seemed to be emerging from one country, Guatemala, was actually the project of another, the United States.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This is why I am very concerned about a potential false flag to be blamed on Iran, as the justification to attack it, in light of current movements by the Israeli government and its mouthpiece, the Unhinged, Surveilled States of Amerika, which make me think that an attack against Iran may well be imminent.

US support for Iran deal reaches highest point: poll

Public support for the Iran deal has reached its highest point previously recorded, according to a new poll, right as a deadline approaches for President Trump to re-certify the agreement in 10 days.

56 percent of people polled in the Morning Consult–Politico survey released Wednesday morning backed the nuclear deal, while 26 percent opposed it.

Republican voters are split, with 46 percent of voters in favor of the bill versus 42 percent against it.

The level of net support is at its highest since the last time it reached 56 percent, in April 2017.

Pompeo is real hawk on Iran & will reinforce Trump’s worst tendencies – Peter Kuznick

Afghanistan was a distraction for George W. Bush and North Korea is the same for Donald Trump. While the former set his sights on Iraq, Trump is after Iran – so says Peter Kuznick, a history professor at American University.

Former CIA Director Mike Pompeo was officially made Washington's top diplomat for foreign policy Wednesday after he was sworn in as the new secretary of state. He's been given a strong endorsement by President Trump – in stark contrast to his predecessor Rex Tillerson who was often at odds with the commander in chief.

After a series of overseas trips, Pompeo will spend the next several weeks in Washington attempting to pick up where Tillerson left off. However, Kuznick fears US foreign policy might take on a more hostile approach under Pompeo.

BREAKING NEWS: Israel Tells Russia to "Stand Down" Syria air defenses ---- or they will be ATTACKED

Russian Su30 aircraft crashed into the sea near Khmeimim airbase, Syria today, 2 pilots killed.

Iranian Assets in Syria "nervous" and actively dispersing to wide areas; concerned about new Israeli attacks.

Earlier in the Syrian conflict, Israel’s airstrikes typically aimed to destroy weapons convoys bound for Hezbollah in Lebanon. There’s now been a significant change. Two strikes in the past month -– widely attributed to Israel, though the Jewish state doesn’t comment on such matters –- targeted permanent infrastructure used by Iran’s forces. Both took place deep inside Syrian territory.

“It’s shortsighted to look at it in terms of how many kilometers from the border Iran is sitting,’’ said Amos Gilad, who recently stepped down as director of political-military affairs at Israel’s Defense Ministry. “Iran cannot be allowed to base themselves militarily in Syria. And Israel is fully determined to prevent that.’’

Rejecting EU attempts to keep Iran deal + staying in Syria = more regime changes on the US mind?

French President Emmanuel “Little Macro” Macron and German Chancellor Angela “Mutti” Merkel might just as well have stayed home and saved the carbon emissions spewed out during their flights to Washington.

Both came with the same task – to convince President Donald Trump not to pull the US out of the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (the JCPOA) regarding Iran’s nuclear program. It was a fool’s errand.

Macron, in every way the junior representative of the Franco-German partnership at the heart of the European Union (EU), was the guest of honor at Trump’s first formal state dinner. He exploited his improbable “bromance” with Trump and his participation in last month’s strike on Syria for all he was worth – which, in the end, wasn’t much. Merkel, whose dislike for Trump is notorious and mutual, fared no better.

European Diplomats Suspect Netanyahu Choreographed Iran Presentation with US

America's European allies are drawing a sharply different collective conclusion from the U.S. about Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's dramatic presentation Monday of "evidence" he says demonstrates Iran lied about its nuclear program. And European diplomats suspect the Israeli leader's presentation, during which he urged President Donald Trump to scrap the nuclear accord signed in 2015 between Tehran and six foreign powers, was choreographed with the White House. Netanyahu did not directly accuse Iran of violating the accord, but his aim, say analysts, was to counter the intense lobbying of Trump by the Europeans, who say the deal shouldn't be discarded.

Iran Envoy: If US Pulls Out, There Is No Nuclear Deal Left

With just over a week until President Trump’s May 12 ultimatum on Iran’s nuclear deal, there is growing speculation about what will happen. If President Trump does withdraw the US from the deal, however, Iran is being very clear what will happen.

“The consequence would be that Iran would in fact be ready to go back to the previous situation,” said Iranian Ambassador Hamid Baeidinejad, who said that without the US “there is no deal left.” European nations had previously suggested the deal might stay intact with or without the US.

The three European parties to the P5+1, Britain, France, and Germany, have been trying to come up with a sideline deal to placate President Trump and avoid the pullout. Whether this is going to be successful or not is still uncertain.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Iranian Ambassador Hamid Baeidinejad is entirely correct in his assessment; the question is, with a corruption indictment hovering over his head, will Netanyahu order massive strikes against either Iran, or Iranian bases in Syria well before the 12th, to attempt to misdirect the Israeli public, and the world, from what is going on with him personally (not to mention what Israeli is doing to Gaza)?!?

At this moment in time, understanding he has been caught lying again about Iran's military and nuclear capabilities, he may think he has nothing to lose here, and may to get into this war as quickly as possible, before the American people have the chance to think that their country is again being tricked into a war against a foreign nation by Israeli leadership, as happened with Iraq.

I would like to hope that President Trump is smarter than to fall for this, in a circumstance where Netanyahu is planning to have the costs for such wars to be borne primarily in American blood and American money; but right now, given some of the bone-headed choices his admnistration has made over the course of his presidency, I am really unsure.

And Trump's problem here, is that he has no one around him to advise him on what is really going on in Iran, other than Netanyahu, who is selectively spoon-feeding him every vicious, hubristic lie about the country he can turn his tongue to, in order to encourage an American attack against either Iranian forces in Syria, or against Iran proper itself.

So I would offer a polite caveat I feel compelled to share with both Prime Minister Netanyahu and President Trump here; there is a 6,000 LB gorilla, currently snoozing on the baby grand Bosendorfer in the living room on this issue.

It's name... is Russia.

And Russia been effectively combatting the jihadists in Syria,at Syria's behest, and its leadership, both military and civilian, have both consistently pledged its support to Iran, should Iran get attacked militarily.

War against Russia over Iran and/or Syria ... would be a form of suicide for the US military. And I say this, as someone who cares very greatly about the future of her country, because at this point it its existence, the US government does not have the weaponry; the troop strength; the manufacturing, or the money to insure a positive outcome against Russia.

Mr. President, the IAEA is comprised of highly bright, educated, and competent people; and when a bunch of people like those employed by the IAEA tell me that Iran is in full compliance with the P5+1 deal, my first tendency would be to believe them, rather than the lies of a foreign official who is trying to trick America's leadership to get onboard a war bandwagon against Iran.

Please, sir, don't fall for this. The potential repercussions for the US's future, could be both horrific.... and irrecoverable.

IAEA refuses to assess Netanyahu’s statement on Iran’s nuclear programMore:http://tass.com/world/1002610

The United Nations’ nuclear watchdog, the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA), refused to assess the statement of Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Tehran’s alleged nuclear developments bypassing the agency’s control.

"In line with standard IAEA practice, the IAEA evaluates all safeguards-relevant information available to it. However, it is not the practice of the IAEA to publicly discuss issues related to any such information," the agency said in a statement on its website.

Ex-US Ambassador Explains Reasons Behind Netanyahu's Iran Nuclear Allegations

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s new allegations about Iran’s nuclear activities are meant to distract attention from the police probe investigating him for corruption, former US Ambassador to Saudi Arabia Chas Freeman told Sputnik.

Netanyahu in a televised address on Monday said Tel Aviv had proof Iran maintained a nuclear weapons program. The performance came less than 60 days after Netanyahu was interrogated by Israeli police as part of yet another corruption probe, the third of its kind opened in less than two years.

"It will be seen as an unscrupulous effort by Netanyahu to divert attention from his own legal and political difficulties," Freeman said when asked about Netanyahu’s performance.

Netanyahu: Don’t look here where we’re shooting children, look over there at Iran

Israeli Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu, a notorious warmonger, serial liar and supremacist racialist who used to lead the closest thing Israel has to a fascist party until parties even more extreme got elected to parliament, is attempting to bamboozle the clueless Trump into getting on a war footing with Iran.

Netanyahu’s breathless announcement that there was a potential weapons aspect to Iran’s nuclear enrichment program has been known for a decade and a half.

Netanyahu even seems to have provoked the White House to issue a communique falsely stating that Iran has a weapons program presently, which it promptly had to retract. The incident is so scary because it shows how easy it is to manipulate the erratic Trump and his not-ready-for-prime-time staff. That sort of thing, David Frum said on Twitter, can cause a war. And he should know.

Oil markets brace for Trump to kill Iran deal

The Iran nuclear deal may be doomed, at least if you believe the global oil market.

Oil prices have surged partly because of mounting expectations that President Trump will kill the 2015 agreement, which allowed Iran to export more crude. Trump must decide by May 12 whether to re-impose sanctions on the OPEC nation.

Brent crude, the global benchmark, briefly soared above $75 a barrel on Monday after Israel leveled new nuclear allegations against Iran.

Bringing back sanctions on Iran could knock out as much as 1 million barrels per day of crude supply, dealing a blow to increasingly fragile energy markets.

Dumb Moves Have Consequences

The analysis of the recent exchanges between French President Emmanuel Macron and President Donald Trump suggest that Washington is most likely about to withdraw from the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) nuclear agreement with Iran that was signed by the U.S. and five other governments in July 2015. The decision will likely be made public before the deadline on re-ratifying the agreement, which is May 12th. As one informed observer has noted, “a train wreck is probably coming, with very damaging consequences that are hard to predict.”

Top 100 Reasons Not to Bomb Iran

1)There are over 80 million men, women, and children in Iran. Bombing them would be mass-murder.
2)If the U.S. government and its allies bomb Libya and Iran when their governments choose not to have nuclear weapons, you can forget about North Korea and the rest of the world choosing not to have nuclear weapons.
3)The longer the world has nuclear weapons, and the more countries that have them, the greater the likelihood of nuclear war.
4)We now know that even a small nuclear war can block out the sun, kill crops, and starve everyone on earth who survives.
5)Bombing people makes those who survive and many who care about them very angry, which is why the “war on terrorism” has predictably increased terrorism.
6)Bombing people kills many, injures more, traumatizes even more, enrages even more, creates huge numbers of refugees, and destabilizes the region bombed.
7)Bombing Iran will produce anti-U.S. and anti-Western and anti-Israeli terrorism.
