MULLAHS TO FEEL MORE THAN THE DESERT HEAT – UPDATE “DEATH TO THE DICTATOR”

Iran crowds reportedly chant ‘death to the dictator!‘ as US sanctions increase economic unrest

German central bank blocks $400 million cash delivery to Iran ahead of crippling US sanctions

The U.S. campaign to rein in Iran has scored a victory in the German financial sector, after the Deutsche Bundesbank− the country’s central bank− imposed a rule stopping a $400 million cash delivery to Tehran.

Iran’s cash-starved economy desperately needs hard currency ahead of crippling U.S. bank sanctions that will be introduced in November.

Germany allows the Iranian-owned European-Iranian trade bank (EIH) to operate in Hamburg. The EIH holds more than $400 million that Tehran wants to receive in cash ahead of a second wave of U.S. sanctions due in November that impact banks and Iran’s energy sector.

There will be no hiding from today’s heat wave, neither air conditioning nor God will protect them the blazing firestorm that awaits. No, we are not talking about the Trump noose, we are alluding to the bottoms up people’s revolution. The Iranian public is one step away from a violent confrontation with the Revolutionary Guards. This confrontation will be the Mother of all Confrontations, pitting the government against the people.

What brings Iran to this unfortunate circumstance is the Mullah’s bellicose ways. Instead of helping the  Iranian people in their daily lives, the ruling Mullahs find it necessary to spread revolution to their perceived enemies, via threats, military assistance and providing personnel to do battle. Only crumbs left for the common folk.

Things are about to get a whole lot worse, today (click here)August 7 at midnight, Trump went all in; the Iranians regime, the target of added sanctions will see the exponential pressure while the President presses down on the Mullahs cajones. This will cause undue hardship to the Iranian people (we have no sword in the fight with them) but the possibility of them suffering will inevitably trigger a mass revolt, one that implodes the ruthless regime.

Trump signed an executive order on Monday to restore some of the sanctions that were lifted under the 2015 nuclear deal during the Obama administration, targeting transactions that involve U.S. dollars, as well as the country’s automotive sector, the purchase of commercial planes and metals including gold.

MICHAEL OBERNDORF – INTERESTING TIMES

Interesting Times

It is said that there’s an old Chinese curse, “May you live in interesting times”, wherein “interesting” appears to be sarcastically ironic. Well, folks, I can’t speak for anyone else, but as I look around each day, I cannot help but conclude that we are, indeed, living in “interesting times”.

China, on many levels, second only to the United States, has performed the Great Leap Forward that Mao dreamed of, but since he was a raging, dogmatic communist, couldn’t pull off. They’ve gone from a Third World, blatant, heavy handed, rigidly communist police state to a First World, semi-capitalist, relatively free – the police presence is still very much there, but is toned way down – world power. However, what has never changed with the Chinese, for some 5,000 years, is the certainty that they are the rightful rulers of the world. They now have the economic, technical, and military wealth to move aggressively toward that goal, and are doing so at a disturbingly rapid pace.

Russia, while no longer the Number 2 Superpower in the world, is still a potential hostile and bellicose force to be reckoned with. Their new alliances in the Middle East, made during the American presidencies of two far leftists – Clinton and Obama – and a die-hard globalist – Bush – have wreaked havoc with the balance of power there. They have been saber rattling all along their borders with Eastern Europe, threatening to take back the subject states that were freed when the Soviet Union collapsed. Indeed, the Crimea has been re-subjugated and the Russian military has interfered in Ukraine directly. During the Obama administration, Russian warplanes, ships, and submarines were often reported at, or within, our air and sea territorial boundaries.

Iran, thanks to the outrageous submission of Obama – an apostate or closet Muslim – is on the verge of developing useable nuclear weapons. They have been a well-known state sponsor of terrorism, supplying money, weapons, and expertise to jihadists and militant Islamists all over the world. Obama removed the sanctions we had placed on them, unfroze their assets, showered them with billions of dollars, and virtually required nothing from them in return. The result has been a resurgence of support for worldwide Islamic terrorism, and an escalating stream of threats from the mullahs in Tehran. It is thought the at least some of the rumored missing “suitcase” tactical nukes that disappeared from Russia at the end of the Cold War ended up in Iran. Their threats to “destroy all you possess” in the “Mother of All Wars” suggests that while they may not have full-blown nukes, they may have the capability of creating an EMP attack, launched from commercial vessels at sea.

The Islamic invasion of Europe, aided and abetted by leftist/globalist European governments has raised, too, the very the possible collapse of Germany, France, Britain, and the Scandinavian countries. The poorest nations in the world are Islamic and Europe seems hell-bent on joining them.

Here at home in the Good Ol’ USA, the left has gone into an insane panic and a violent rampage over the re-emergence of American pride, the election of Donald Trump as president, and his remarkable and undeniable success in undoing much of the damage done by Obama over the past eight years. On Capitol Hill, the leftist Democrat Party has become openly “socialist”, encouraging the violence from their shrinking base, very reminiscent of the National Socialist German Nazis in the late 1930s. They’ve been colluding with the RINO Republican misleadership to block and undermine Trump as he works to Make America Great Again. This communist/fascist alliance is also aiding and abetting a criminal invasion of America by foreigners, one that is aimed at destroying traditional American culture and capitalism by overloading it with ignorant, uneducated, unskilled cheap laborers who have no understanding of our Constitution nor loyalty to our laws, or systems of government and economics.

These are just the most obvious examples of the apparent slide into turmoil that is occurring all over the world. Many more localized, but equally disturbing examples could be cited, but I’m sure your get the idea.

All this, to me, adds up to nothing less than “interesting times”. We’ve had them before, and America has, so far, survived. As with Britain which had Winston Churchill during WWll, we have Donald Trump. In spite of the constant denigrating attacks from the leftist propaganda machine – aka, the “mainstream” media – and Democrat seditionist politicians like Adam Schiff and Maxine Waters, Trump is proving himself to be one of the most competent and extraordinary presidents in history of the nation. He has not failed yet and I, for one, trust him implicitly. If anyone can bring America through these “interesting times”, he can. And I, like millions of other real, patriotic Americans, will support him in every way I can.

GLOBAL WARMING VORTEX SUCKS IN THE IRANIAN RIAL AND TURKISH LIRA

It was inevitable, two of the grand standing countries, run by autocratic Muslims, would see their currencies implode faster than a meteor streaking across their horizons going head to head with the mother of all tornadoes. Iran’s currency is now in the midst of an extreme desert vortex sucking the life out of it. The desert kingdom, once known as the Persian empire is feeling the spirited wind of President Trump; the value of their currency vanishing under the sun is no mirage. Citizens are protesting en masse.

Turkey, no friend of the United States, has run amok of the West; the result has been a whirlwind that has sucked up everything in its path. Hardest hit has been the implosion of their currency. There is no stopping its demise as the drooling Erdogan continues to lambaste the West and Israel. But soon, he will heel like the dog he is. His ascension to the Turkish presidency with unlimited powers has created a rift with NATO and particularly the United States. A schemer of all sorts, making love to Putin while on his knees, is taking Turkey down the third world path to devastation.

Turkey keeps rates unchanged. It was not exactly clear how the inflation outlook with improve if the central bank will not increase rates, prompting some to ask if it was dictator Recep Erdogan – who has been vocally against highest rates and who recently made himself de facto head of the central bank – who wrote the statement.

As a reminder, traders have been worried that after President Erdogan appointed his son-in-law to the Finance and Treasury, while taking more control over the central bank, his influence would prevent the central bank from hiking further, even if they gave him the benefit of the doubt. They are no very disappointed.

Meanwhile, as a result of the aborted tightening, Turkey’s inflation is set to soar even more: June’s inflation data saw the Y/Y rate rise to 15.4% from 12.1%, the highest print in 15 years.

Indeed, on Wednesday morning, even before word of the impending sanctions began to appear in US media, Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan responded to earlier complaints from US officials—most notably President Donald Trump and Vice-President Mike Pence—about Brunson’s continued detention.

Apparently, Erdogan did not comprehend how serious the White House was. He claimed that Turkey had an independent judiciary, while he affirmed, “We will not give any credit to this type of threatening language,” which comes from an “evangelist (Mike Pence), zionist mentality.”

News reports of the US sanctions then sent Turkey’s currency tumbling to historic lows, even before they were formally announced. Dr. Aykan Erdemir, a former Turkish lawmaker and now senior fellow at the Foundation for the Defense of Democracies, suggested to Kurdistan 24 that the “biggest impact” of the US sanctions “will be on Turkey’s economy, which is on the verge of a meltdown.”

The Iranian Mules (mullahs) are changing their turbans by the hour – sweat pouring out of them like a camel unloading in the desert heat. Other Iranians chose to yell out glorifying eulogies to the late Persian monarch Reza Shah Pahlavi, during whose reign Iran enjoyed a prosperous economy and secure living conditions. Addressing Iran’s intrusive regional policy and the spending of national resources on military excursions and ambitions for hegemony, some demonstrators affirmed that their lives are dedicated not to Gaza, nor Lebanon, but only the homeland Iran.

 

AUGUST 2, 2018

Atlantic Council

As part of the United States’ withdrawal from the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), the US Treasury Department will restore sanctions on a number of key Iranian sectors and activities on August 6.

Here’s what you need to know about this set of sanctions:

What is the JCPOA?
The JCPOA or Iran nuclear deal is a 159-page document agreed to on July 14, 2015 by the five permanent members of the United Nations Security Council—Britain, China, France, Russia, and the United States—plus Germany with Iran. It traded curbs on Iran’s nuclear program for sanctions relief from the European Union, United States, and United Nations. The JCPOA went into implementation on January 16, 2016.

US President Donald Trump announced on May 8 that the United States would withdraw from the deal—despite Iran’s continued compliance—and re-impose all sanctions lifted under the agreement because of perceived deficiencies in the deal including Iran’s pursuit of “destablizing and malign activities” that the United States and its allies oppose.

What are the Trump administration’s stated goals for a new Iran deal?
President Trump has claimed that the United States is open to a new agreement with Iran. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo on May 21 publicized a twelve-point plan aimed at making Iran a “normal” country by ending its uranium enrichment program, its ballistic missile program, and its support of militant proxies in the Middle East. In return, Pompeo offered a complete lifting of US sanctions and normalized diplomatic and trade relations.

Many observers saw the plan as unrealistic and it was rejected by the Iranian government as a thinly disguised effort at regime change.

What Iran sanctions will snapback on August 6?
According to the US Treasury Department, the following sanctions will be re-imposed:

“Sanctions on the purchase or acquisition of US dollar banknotes by the Government of Iran; sanctions on Iran’s trade in gold or precious metals; sanctions on the direct or indirect sale, supply, or transfer to or from Iran of graphite, raw, or semi-finished metals such as aluminum and steel, coal, and software for integrating industrial processes; sanctions on significant transactions related to the purchase or sale of Iranian rials, or the maintenance of significant funds or accounts outside the territory of Iran denominated in the Iranian rial; sanctions on the purchase, subscription to, or facilitation of the issuance of Iranian sovereign debt; sanctions on Iran’s automotive sector.”

The United States will no longer import Iranian-origin Persian carpets and foodstuffs such as pistachios, and export or re-export commercial airplanes as well as services and parts.

What companies have already left Iran?
The Trump administration gave foreign companies and the foreign subsidiaries of US multinationals ninety days to wind down their business with Iran. In anticipation of the sanctions, over a dozen major companies have already left the country. They include Boeing, General Electric, Maersk, Peugeot, the Reliance refining complex, Siemens, and Total oil and gas. The Trump administration claims that over fifty international entities and firms have committed to leaving Tehran.

What happens if a company doesn’t comply?
The Trump administration has repeatedly said that it “will not hesitate” to penalize US and foreign businesses that don’t comply with re-imposed sanctions on Iran by blocking them from doing business in the United States. In June, US officials from the State Department and Treasury Department met with foreign counterparts in Europe and Asia to explain the new sanctions policy.

What is the European Union doing?
The EU has promised to try to keep the JCPOA alive, despite the accord being in “intensive care.” It has sought to provide channels for trade to continue, but has conceded that it cannot force private businesses to remain in Iran. Several European countries—including Britain, France, and Germany—have also requested “broad exemptions” for their companies. However, the Trump administration has so far rejected these requests.

What has been the impact in Iran?
The Iranian economy, also burdened by corruption and mismanagement, has taken a nosedive since the US withdrawal from the JCPOA. While the Iranian currency has also gone into free fall. The rial is now worth less than 100,000 to the US dollar, although it has recovered slightly from an all-time low of 117,000 rials after President Trump offered to meet his Iranian counterpart without preconditions.

The Iranian people will suffer under the weight of sanctions, while the Iranian government scrambles to find alternatives means to keep the country afloat.

How will Tehran respond?
The Iranian government has shown no indication that it will surrender to the Trump administration’s demands any time soon. The upper echelons of the Iranian government also reacted negatively to Trump’s offer to meet, widely believing that they wouldn’t get anything in return and demanding that the US first return to the JCPOA. However, some Iranians don’t see the harm of President Hassan Rouhani talking to Trump.

THE OBAMA LIE – SELLOUT TO THE MULLAHS PROVES HIS ALLEGIANCE TO ALLAH

Barack Hussein Obama, the fraudulent ex-president of the United States, a Muslim Brotherhood life member, hid from the American people and Congress the secret deals, the under the table schemes, the back door collusion and most of all the selling out the United States of America. These lies, deceptions and deceits are High Crimes and Misdemeanors and they placed America in great peril for the foreseeable future.

President Trump has spent valuable time in his pursuit to right the wrongs of Obama’s lies which undercut the safety of American citizens.  The Iran deal, which was not approved by Congress and never would have, was a traitor type of act. Now it is up to President Trump to right a wrong; one that should never have taken place.

The Mullah regime is hated by the majority of Iranians. Trump’s plan is to create the atmosphere for them to manifest their disdain for this illegal theocracy. Once critical mass is attained the revolt against tyranny will come full circle. This is the plan. Bring the Mullah trouble makers to their knees and they will beg for mercy. Will it happen? Time will tell.

We be that these Mullahs are watching the Singapore negotiations with their eyes peeled.

ISRAEL TO VISIT IRAN NEXT -TEHRAN TO GO ON KOSHER DIET

Israel strikes ‘nearly all’ Iranian infrastructure in Syria after Iran rocket attack, minister says

Israel said it struck “nearly all” of the Iranian infrastructure sites in Syria on Thursday, in direct response to a barrage of Iranian rocket fire targeting Israeli military positions in the Golan Heights.

The Israel Defense Force (IDF) said it deployed fighter jets that struck every target on its list. The targets included military compounds, intelligence operations and munition warehouses, a statement read. The strikes were Israel’s largest air operation in years, the statement read.

 

For reasons only know to the Mullahs the likelihood of them going on a Kosher diet served by their enemies in Israel (the Jews) is all but certain. There will be no similarity to the  Trojan Horse of days yonder though, the Israeli tipped missiles will be buttressed with something more akin to a Chinese New Year celebration.

NUCLEAR DEAL WITH IRAN IMPLODES OBAMA’S LEGACY

What setting an agenda it is wise to bring the other side into negotiations. They may not want to compromise but realpolitik requires it. And Obama will not admit it, but the cause of him losing Congress and “lock her upthe election can be partly attributed to Obamacare. When the shoe is on the other foot a schism is in the realm of possibility – we are beginning to see the fissures; wider than those on the Big Island.

For instance Obamacare and the Nuclear deal with the Mullahs was a one sided affair. Obamacare was shoved down Americas throat, no negotiations with the Republicans but a quick “take this” and shove it where the sun don’t shine. We all know how Obamacare turned out – being eviscerated by the Trump administration. Its carcass lies waiting for the rest of the vultures to pick it clean. And don’t say we didn’t warn you on the Nuclear bargain. Obama didn’t go to Congress because they were dead set against it. So again the Muslim in Chief once again shoved it down our throats. And to boot he greased their skids with $150 billion. ENTER DONALD TRUMP.

 

President Trump is withdrawing the U.S. from the controversial Iran nuclear deal and imposing greater sanctions on the Middle Eastern nation, he said from the White House on May 8.

Calling the 2015 landmark accord “decaying and rotten,” Trump said the U.S. would “not be held hostage to nuclear blackmail” and promised to reinstate the highest level of sanctions on Iran. For months, Trump left open whether he would move to officially scrap the agreement or renegotiate it.

The deal, known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), had lifted most U.S. and international sanctions on Tehran as certain restrictions were placed on Iran’s nuclear program. The historic agreement was reached by Iran and several world powers, including the U.S., in 2015 under Barack Obama’s presidency.

Top Iran official says country will up $$$ on ballistic missile program after US exit from 2015 accord. 

The Iranians are good at threats, but they now face several dangers. Their execution of increasing the magnitude of the ballistic missile program faces several challenges – Israel, U.S. Saudi Arabia and others that are waiting in the wings.

TRUMP TO NUKE THE IRAN DEAL – KANYE WEST NUKES THE LIBERAL ELITE

Trump will give the Mullahs a taste of their own medicine; sending a message to the Middle East trouble maker. Our allies are bowing to the Muslim dirt for no other reason than economic. Effectively they are putting dollars ahead of truth, turning their heads to the nuclear ambitions of Tehran and the destruction of Israel. However, they don’t understand the kindling fire that has been set. Israel has no choice but to take drastic action against the ruling Revolutionary Guards. Once the button is pressed there is no return. So instead of making the world safer the Euro elite, Germany and France, have been taken on an Iranian carpet ride.

Kanye West has raised the ire of none other than Maxine Waters. “He is talking out of turn” she said.  Well take it from her, she knows what she is talking about, doesn’t she? What did he do to elicit such a berated response.  He spoke the truth and sometimes the truth hurts. Well this time the truth Kanye West escaped the Democrats’ plantation and people are losing their minds.

The rapper has found himself embroiled in controversy these past few days, even more so than usual. And fans, critics and fellow celebrities have reacted quickly and forcefully, often taking him to task for what some say are remarks that fly in the face of historical facts.
Last week, West went on a Twitter tear, tweeting about his admiration of President Donald Trump, calling him “my brother” and saying they both have “dragon energy.”
The artist raised a great deal of ire when he tweeted a photo of himself wearing a “Make America Great Again” hat.
He then doubled down on his comments — and his determination to be a “free thinker” — by releasing the song “Ye vs. The People” in which he spars with rapper T.I., who has been a vocal critic of Trump.

But West surpassed even his own ability to stir up the masses when on Tuesday he suggested that the enslavement of African Americans in the US was a “choice.”

“When you hear about slavery for 400 years,” he said during a TMZ interview that took place at its headquarters. “For 400 years? That sounds like a choice.”

SMALL MEN WHO THREATEN THE UNITED STATES WILL SUFFER CONSEQUENCES

Iran’s Rouhani threatened the United States. He indicated that we will face consequences if Trump bolts from the nuclear agreement signed by Obama. Take note; this deal was never OK’d by Congress.

President Hassan Rouhani said on Sunday Iran had plans to respond to any move by U.S. President Donald Trump on the 2015 nuclear agreement and the United States would regret a decision to exit the accord. Trump has said unless European allies rectify “flaws” in Tehran’s nuclear agreement with world powers by May 12 he will refuse to extend US sanctions relief for Iran.

The cognoscenti understand that Obama reached a false promise with his Muslim Brothers, then handed over $150 billion to them for good measure. The United States got nothing in return. Now Trump has to fix this charade.

Trump sees three defects in the agreement: a failure to address Iran’s ballistic missile program; the terms under which international inspectors can visit suspect Iranian nuclear sites; and “sunset” clauses under which key limits on the Iranian nuclear program start to expire.

At a news conference with Trump on Tuesday, Macron said he wanted “to work on a new deal with Iran” to address four things: limiting Iran’s nuclear program in the short term and long term, restraining its ballistic missile activities and curbing what the West sees as its destabilizing behavior in the Middle East.

TIME TO RIGHT A WRONG

Back yonder the Nobel Peace Prize was awarded to none other than President Obama, who by the way was an unknown quantity at that point in time, but for some reason which we all know, was the greatest sham of the century . To quote the committee, “has attached special importance to Obama’s vision of and work for a world without nuclear weapons.” Have you ever heard of a bunch of garbage? Obama condoned the development of nuclear weapons in North Korea. He gave Iran the key to nuclear development by the mullahs. His foreign policy decisions were the white flag ticket to the Russians, Turkey and Isis in Syria. Don’t forget the 400,000 killed in this conflict. Obama is responsible for this blood letting; there is more blood on his hands then the local butcher.

Soon we shall see the Iran agreement that Obama agreed to come full circle under President Trump. May 12 is the date to watch. Foreign policy expert, John Bolton now part of the Trump administration, is not fooled by words, but sees the action on the ground in Syria, Yemen, Iraq and Lebanon as the long arm of Islamic terrorist organization known as the Revolutionary Guards spreading their hegemony across the Levant. However, he hasn’t turned a blind eye to eventual encounter Israel will have with Iran. Seal of the Army of the Guardians of the Islamic Revolution.svg

For sure we know that past is prelude; Israel took out a partially built Iranian nuclear reactor in 1981 – the same holds true for a partially built nuclear reactor site in Syria -constructed by the North Koreans. Israel cannot afford to see the spread of nuclear weapons in the Middle East. Their defense establishment has the plans and operations ready at the get go to repeat the 1981 mission. This is not hyperbole, but it will be coming to a theater near you. Russia, will not sit idly by when the conflict goes full bore, we guarantee it. Along with the destruction of Iran’s nuclear capability, Syria will suffer a destruction of their military establishment too.

Mattis: Iran-Israel clash is close, but US military focus shifts out of Syria to Iraq

The dangers we face today are the result of Obama’s White Flag, he lived in a Utopian world made up of bad actors. The hoax here is that Obama was their point man. Obama, the man of peace as the Nobel Committee designated was not one at all, but a criminal perpetrator of war.

Do the right thing Nobel Committee, take back Obama’s Peace Prize and awarded it to President Trump.

THE OBAMA RED LINE, THEN PINK LINE, THEN WHITE FLAG

 President Obama never walked the talk and this week it ended with more civilians being gassed by the “Animal Assad”.  

(click)Russia blames Israel for deadly airstrike on Assad base after alleged chemical attack. The United States denied that they bombed Assad’s airbase killing ten Iranians, but no doubt they gave the Israelis permission for the hit. 

Remembering back to the day when Obama received a Nobel Peace Prize baffles us, probably the bulk of free thinking initiated Americans too.

The 2009 Nobel Peace Prize was awarded to United States President Barack Obama for his “extraordinary efforts to strengthen international diplomacy and cooperation between peoples”. The Norwegian Nobel Committee announced the award on October 9, 2009, citing Obama’s promotion of nuclear nonproliferation and a “new climate” in international relations fostered by Obama, especially in reaching out to the Muslim world.

The Nobel Committee’s decision drew mixed reactions from US commentators and editorial writers across the political spectrum, as well as from the rest of the world.

Obama accepted the prize in Oslo on December 10, 2009. In a 36-minute speech, he discussed the tensions between war and peace and the idea of a “just war” saying, “perhaps the most profound issue surrounding my receipt of this prize is the fact that I am the Commander-in-Chief of the military of a nation in the midst of two wars.

Baffled may not be the word to describe this prize, a more intense definition is needed, say confused, delirious, maybe we were disoriented. Maybe these are the words to describe the Nobel committee. Because it seems to us that they were disoriented, delirious and confused. Well how did it work out for the man of PEACE?

Not too well; 400,000 Syrians dead whose kin can thank Obama’s Red line. Iran waging havoc throughout the Middle East and on the verge of a nuclear capability, signed on by Obama and Kerry. Hezbollah backing up Assad in Syria and running roughshod in Lebanon. The aftermath of Obama’s peace overtures have not turned out as expected. The exclamation point here is last weeks message sent via airmail to Syria. Russia has got the message too, but all is not said and done. We sincerely hope the Nobel committee recognizes their mistake and claws back Obama’s prize and then hands it over to Donald Trump. 

Susan Rice, you remember her, a liar of first rate. It was she who fell hook line and sinker for Russia’s money back guarantee that no chemical weapons remain in Syria; was she smoking some of Obama’s  stash during her time at the U.N? But we will get to the bottom of it one way or another. Obama’s peace overtures to dictators will stand out as a ruthless ticket for them to go on killing with abandon.
