What´s on the New Iran Sanctions List?
Iran Wire, by Reza Haghighatnejad

Original Article

Posted By:Zarin, 1/14/2018 7:39:35 AM

On Friday, January 12, US President Donald Trump waived — for now — nuclear-related sanctions against Iran. At the same time, he issued new sanctions against 14 people and entities in Iran, and Iran’s judiciary chief Sadegh Larijani appears at the top of the list. An Iranian government spokesman described the sanctions against Larijani as a “hostile action” and Iran’s foreign ministry said the move “crossed all red lines of conduct in the international community, is a violation of international law and will surely be answered by a serious reaction from the Islamic Republic.” But this is not a new situation

Comments:
President Trump has added names of individuals as well as Iranian government agencies & several companies to the banned list. One is a private company that imports PZT items from China - stuff used in warfare etc. That one has been going since 2011 - the former admin. ´missed´ it.

I sort of doubt that 0bama ´missed´ giving anything to Iran, the biggest terrorist state in the world. And recently 0bama warned Iran that Israel was going to assassinate one of its generals who heads its terrorist arm.

Also we have Rex Tillerson, James Mattis and Bob Corker capitulating to Iran and giving President Trump terrible advice. They are the wet noodle triangle. Corker has gone rogue and has never worked so hard on behalf of the Iranians. And Tillerson likes Corker so much he´s hired one of Corkers associates to be his advisor.

Nearly all members of
National Park Service advisory panel
resign in frustration
Washington Post, by Juliet Eilperin    Original Article
Posted By: Zarin- 1/16/2018 10:44:25     Post Reply
Three-quarters of the members of a federally chartered board advising the National Park Service abruptly quit Monday night out of frustration that Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke had refused to meet with them or convene a single meeting last year. The resignation of nine out of 12 National Park System Advisory Board members leaves the federal government without a functioning body to designate national historic or natural landmarks. It also underscores the extent to which federal advisory bodies have become marginalized under the Trump administration. In May 2017, Zinke suspended all outside committees while his staff reviewed their composition and work. In a

In December 2013, Hamed Kamal Muhammad bin Haydara disappeared into the maze that is Yemen’s National Security Bureau (NSB). Over the course of four years, he was tortured and denied a fair trial. His wife and daughters were not allowed to visit, nor did he get to meet legal counsel. Finally, on January 2, 2018, Haydara, was sentenced to public execution by the specialised criminal court in Yemen’s capital Sana’a. He wasn’t even present in court. One of around 2,000 Baha’is in Yemen, he was picked up for something one would take for granted in a secular country: practicing his

What Makes the Recent Unrest Different
Javan Newspaper via Iran Wire, by Dr. Abdollah Ganji    Original Article
Posted By: Zarin- 1/8/2018 3:28:18     Post Reply
Recent spates of unrest in some cities in the country have, in their own way, brought a new experience to the people and the state that can add to earlier experiences and offer new and different lessons and attitudes. These instances of unrest have characteristics that make them different from all other riots, protests and unrest after the revolution, although they might share certain aspects with previous cases in terms of how foreigners have handled it. 1. The first and the most important characteristic is that, unlike in 1999 and 2009, the reformists are not behind the unrest. The low

The federal probe into a 2010 land deal orchestrated by former Burlington College president Jane Sanders, wife of U.S. Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., has deepened. VTDigger has confirmed that a grand jury has compelled sworn witness testimony in the case. The Vermont U.S. Attorney’s office has interviewed at least one witness before the grand jury to determine whether indictments should be handed down. Former Burlington College board member Robin Lloyd says she testified for about an hour on Oct. 26 before a grand jury at the federal courthouse in Burlington.

Since the arrests of dozens of protesters over the last few days, life at Evin Prison has become noisier and busier, with new prisoners being ushered in and moved around the prison. For many inmates, it’s not the news agencies that have been providing key information outside the prison — it’s what they have gleaned from witnessing how Evin has changed in recent days. IranWire spoke an inmate serving a sentence for financial misconduct who is currently held at the prison’s Ward 7. He described what it was like. “I was woken up early in the morning by the noises of prisoners’

Iran Officials Blame Each Other

The street protests that have engulfed Iran since Thursday have rocked Iran’s political establishment. Small protests about economic conditions are not uncommon in the country, but these protests were different, quickly moving on to address more general political grievances and spreading to other cities. They are now the largest anti-regime protests since 2009. The demonstrations had started by attacking the reform-focused government of President Hassan Rouhani and his economic policies. In fact, by all indications, they were started by Rouhani opponents belonging to the regime’s hardline conservative faction — but they quickly grew and changed tack, sometimes getting out of

Iran Rocked by Second Day of Street Protests

For the second day in a row, thousands of Iranians have taken to the streets in cities across the country to protest against the rising cost of living and economic corruption. But what started out as demonstrations against a very specific set of grievances has quickly turned into an expression of a more general malaise. On Friday, in addition to protesting against corruption, many people shouted out anti-government and anti-regime slogans and sentiments, expressing a more widespread anger about life in the Islamic Republic.

Tired of Regional Critics, Venezuela
Looks to Russia and China
New York Times, by Ernesto Londono    Original Article

Venezuela, which a decade ago aspired to be the axis of a new, left-leaning diplomatic and trade alliance in the Americas, is finding itself increasingly isolated in the hemisphere. Venezuela downgraded diplomatic relations with Canada and Brazil in recent days, after a war of words over the Venezuelan government’s decision last week to ban three influential opposition parties from running candidates in next year’s presidential election. As its leftist president, Nicolás Maduro, is increasingly regarded as a despot among neighbors in a region that has shifted politically to the right, Venezuela, once the richest country in South America but now

Seventy-six years ago on Dec. 7, 1941, the Imperial Japanese fleet surprise-attacked Pearl Harbor, Hawaii, the home port of the U.S. Pacific Fleet. Japanese carrier planes killed 2,403 Americans. They sunk or submerged 19 ships (including eight battleships destroyed or disabled) and damaged or destroyed more than 300 planes. In an amazing feat of seamanship, the huge Japanese carrier fleet had steamed nearly 3,500 miles [skip] Vinson had assumed in the mid-1930s that fascist Japan and Germany posed existential threats to the United States. For America to survive, he saw that America would need mastery of the seas to transport

Defense Secretary Jim Mattis said it is too early to tell what effect the killing of former Yemeni President Ali Abdullah Saleh will have in Yemen, where there is a civil war raging between Iran-supported Houthi insurgents and the U.S.- and Saudi-backed government. “Right now, I think it’s too early to tell which way the killing of Saleh will take it. Now, it could take it towards the—what we’ve been trying for how many months now, trying to get it this to the U.N.-brokered peace table,” he said to reporters traveling with him.

Another decision made by President Donald Trump is being taken to court. The president issued two proclamations Monday to reduce the size of the Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monument, as well as the Bears Ears National Monument, and to allow mining in the newly public lands, and conservation groups filed a lawsuit against it a few hours later. Trump’s order reduces the size of the iconic Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monument in Utah, where numerous dinosaur fossils have been found. About 1.7 million acres of land was declared protected under Proclamation 6920 by former President Bill Clinton on Sept. 18, 1996, (Congress

WASHINGTON- President Donald Trump relentlessly congratulates himself for the healthy state of the U.S. economy, with its steady growth, low unemployment, busier factories and confident consumers.But in the year since Trump´s inauguration, most analysts tend to agree on this: The economy remains essentially the same sturdy one he inherited from Barack Obama.Growth has picked up, but it´s not yet clear if it can sustain a faster expansion. Hiring and wage growth actually slowed slightly from Obama´s last year in office. Consumers and businesses are much more optimistic, but their spending has yet to move meaningfully higher.

A crazed, bug-eyed Cory Booker, junior senator from New Jersey, blasted Department of Homeland Security secretary Kristjen Nielsen during a Senate Judiciary Committee hearing yesterday on immigration. Booker became so unhinged in his staged outrage that he repeatedly threatened Nielsen, with clenched fists pointed in her direction. Equal to Booker´s overt violation of Nielsen´s right to be treated without hostility and intimidation was the deranged content of his tirade. Nielsen had stated earlier she did not hear the president say the "s-hole" word at last week´s White House meeting on DACA. Booker went ballistic and accused Nielsen of covering up

Republicans are slamming Democratic Sen. Cory Booker for “mansplaining” to Department of Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen in a sharp and one-sided exchange Wednesday before a Senate committee. The New Jersey lawmaker blasted Nielsen´s "silence and amnesia" after failing to get the response he sought on her recollection of statements President Trump made in a meeting last week. Booker´s hostile tone prompted Republican National Committee Rapid Response Director Michael Ahrens to invoke the millennial term for males talking down to women.

Men can now look forward to a liberated future of wearing dresses. One such fashion designer, Alejandro Gomez Palomo of Spain, is helping to rush in that new era. According to the 25-year-old Palomo, whose public appearance looks as if Dracula spent a weekend at Liberace´s house, gender fluidity is a way of life he hopes that future men can share. In an interview with AFP, Palomo likened his fashion revolution to the ones ushered by Chanel and Yves Saint Laurent in the 20th century.

Wednesday on CNN’s “New Day,” Dr. Sanjay Gupta, the network’s chief medical correspondent, proclaimed that based on President Donald Trump’s coronary calcium scores going back to the previous decade, Trump has heart disease. Gupta’s diagnosis came a day after Trump’s doctor, Navy Rear Adm. Dr. Ronny Jackson, offered his assessment of Trump’s health at a White House press briefing. “When you look at the findings you just put up there, Alisyn — this coronary calcium score is a score a lot of cardiologists use to try and be predictive and be proactive,” Gupta said. “And if the number gets up

CNN´s chief medical correspondent Dr. Sanjay Gupta said Wednesday that he believes tests reveal that President Trump has heart disease. Gupta said dating back to 2009, President Trump started to have "these tests that are actually looking for the presence of calcium in the blood vessels that lead to the heart." "Steadily, up until just this past week when he had it performed again, those numbers have gone up," he said. "When they get to a certain range ... that means he has heart disease." Gupta then talked about his interaction Tuesday with President Trump´s doctor, Navy Rear Adm. Dr.

Pope Francis has conferred the title of “Commander of the Pontifical Equestrian Order of St. Gregory the Great” on Lilianne Ploumen, a Dutch politician and vocal agitator for abortion rights. Last year, Ploumen founded a pro-abortion organization called She Decides, which offers funding and support for international NGOs that provide, facilitate or campaign for abortion. In an email to the Catholic Herald, Ms. Ploumen said that she was “very honoured” by the pontifical medal, which was sent via the Dutch Ministry of Foreign Affairs last month.

Sen.

McCain called the Trump administration’s treatment of journalists “inconsistent at best and hypocritical at worst,” particularly when it comes to condemning attacks on the press abroad. McCain cited foreign leaders who have

Microwaves are as damaging to the environment as cars and users must be taught how to cook more efficiently, scientists say. The ovens are responsible for 7.7 million tons of the ­carbon dioxide pumped out from the EU each year — the equivalent of 6.8 million cars. Researchers say they are fueling global warming with consumers overcooking food to blame. Microwaves account for the largest percentage of sales of all types of oven in the EU, with numbers set to reach 135 million by 2020. But scientists at the University of Manchester — the first to assess the environmental impact
