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

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.

"Admiring your own handiwork" is a familiar expression containing an important truth about the mind. We handed this particular story to our Tony Dokoupil: Are you the kind of person who actually likes washing dishes? How about folding laundry? Yardwork? What all these have in common, of course, is they occupy our hands. And as it turns out, some researchers think that may be key to making our brains very happy.

All that optimism for hot
first-quarter economic growth

The Federal Reserve of Atlanta has had to walk back, in a big way, its headline-making forecast that the first quarter would feature eye-popping economic growth. Where back in late January the central bank district was calling for a 5.4 percent GDP gain, it released a reading Wednesday for its widely followed GDPNow tracker that slashed that projection all the way down to 1.9 percent. Had the original forecast stuck, it would have been the best quarter since the Great Recession ended in mid-2009. As it stands, the new number puts growth closer to the 2 percent or so that has been

Liberal billionaire Tom Steyer, who has been pushing for President Donald Trump´s impeachment and recently spent $3 million to register Latino voters, also is working hard this week to resuscitate a California state bill that would end the process of demanding thousands of dollars in cash bail from suspected criminals. NextGen America, Steyer´s flagship environmental advocacy firm and political action committee, has paid to sponsor Politico´s California "Playbook" morning newsletter of top headlines every day this week. Steyer is using the California Playbook sponsorship to promote a special Sacramento screening of 13th, a documentary film on racism in the criminal justice system.

The U.S. Embassy in Mexico has narrowed its travel warning for the Caribbean city of Playa del Carmen amid what it calls an unspecified "ongoing security threat" just as the spring holiday season is kicking into high gear. The revised restrictions now say U.S. government employees must avoid five neighborhoods in and around a tourist center filled with hotels, bars and restaurants, but lift a blanket ban that had included several all-inclusive resorts. Friday´s alert also clarifies that the threat is separate from issues with ferries between Playa del Carmen and the island of Cozumel. On Friday, CBS News correspondent Anna Werner

Nobody from the US State Department or embassy contacted Pettibone’s family. Sellner was on his way to give a speech that authorities say would cause “tension among local communities and possibly incite hatred.” “Yesterday, Martin Sellner and Brittany Pettibone were detained by the UK Government and effectively declared political dissidents.

´A Wrinkle in Time´ ditches the book´s
explicit Christian references — and the
movie really suffers because of it

Disney´s big-budget adaptation of the best-selling novel "A Wrinkle in Time" falters in many of the same ways the book does— but there was one major change made in the movie from the novel. The film´s version of events strips away explicit mention of God or religion, instead trimming down the central conflict to one between "evil" and "light." Though the film adaptation has several critical flaws — namely pacing and an off-kilter wobble between too much exposition and then not enough — the removal of L´Engle´s religious overtones leads to a key issue. By removing the religious themes, the movie version

U.S. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson said on Friday in Nairobi that he had shared his concerns with Kenya’s president about the importance of democracy and said the government should not stifle the media and threaten the courts. The Kenyan government shut down three television channels in January on the day opposition leader Raila Odinga took a symbolic presidential oath, then defied a court order to switch them back on. The stations had planned to live-stream the oath. “We believe that there are actions that need to be taken in Kenya and that they need to correct certain actions like shutting

For nearly half of his life, John Sears has lived outdoors under the stars, traveling the Western U.S. with a trio of pack mules to promote the free and unfettered use of public lands and roadways. But in recent years, times have been harder for the 70-year-old traveler who calls himself “Mule” and “Monk.” One of his pet mules, Babe, was put down after breaking her leg in a stream two years ago and a second, Lady, grew too old for the road and retired. Things got even tougher for Sears on Monday morning, when he woke up in Escondido’s Grape Day Park and discovered his last mule, Little Girl, had been stolen overnight.

Trump Economy: Is 3%

The role of economic growth in advanced democracies is not mainly the accumulation of more material goods. By any historical norm, even today´s poor are staggeringly wealthy. But what if economic growth can no longer perform this vital function? What if the economy has entered a prolonged period of slow growth that frustrates millions of Americans? What if the glue no longer holds? These questions are already posed by rising economic inequality. Now the debate enters a new phase with the release of President Trump´s first annual economic report and the more scholarly Report of the Council of Economic Advisers

"A lot of these schools—Sandy Hook had an all-female faculty, from principal to teachers," noted CNN senior law enforcement analyst Tom Fuentes.

Any regular reader at American Thinker is aware of the rising concern about government overreach and amplified, expanded executive branch abuses and multi-agency multifarious misconduct. The ominous nature of the administrative state (think IRS, EPA, DOJ, DEA, Interior, FCC, SEC) transforms our government originally designed as limited and by the consent of the governed. Emblematic of the administrative state problem is the slow-rolling special counsel coup being orchestrated by intelligence and law enforcement agencies intent on overturning a presidential election, energized and perpetrated by human creatures in the embedded federal bureaucracy that occupies a wide swath of swampland on the

Fox News senior judicial analyst Andrew Napolitano explained Monday why he believes the firing of FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe could be viewed as "obstruction of justice." (Snip) Napolitano said he sees the firing as "reckless" and "vindictive" because McCabe is "more likely than not to be a witness" against Sessions´ boss, President Trump. "Firing him in that environment could very well be interpreted as an effort to diminish his effectiveness as a witness. What´s that called? Obstruction of justice," said Napolitano, adding he´s unsure if Special Counsel Robert Mueller will pursue such a case. Napolitano said on "America´s Newsroom"

Officials in a Minneapolis school district are trying to figure out why black students are suspended three times more often than their white peers, according to a Sunday report. Black students have a 338 percent higher chance than white students to be suspended at Justice Page Middle School in Minneapolis, Minn., according to The New York Times. Black students make up 41 percent of the Minneapolis school district’s student body, but 76 percent of its suspensions. The black students constantly tell the principal, “The teacher only sees me,” Justice Page Principal Erin Rathke said. She responds, “Yes, that’s probably true.”

SAN FRANCISCO — A woman in Tempe, Ariz., died after being hit by a self-driving car operated by Uber, in what appears to be the first known death of a pedestrian struck by an autonomous vehicle on public roads. The Uber vehicle was in autonomous mode with a human safety driver at the wheel when it struck the woman, who was crossing the street outside of a crosswalk, the Tempe police said in a statement. The episode occurred overnight, although the authorities did not specify whether it was late Sunday or early Monday. The woman was not publicly identified. An

James Kallstrom is no joke. With nearly thirty years in the FBI, several of them as the Assistant Director, Kallstrom knows how the agency functions far more than most. So when he says there was a plot to protect Hillary Clinton from prosecution and to illegally influence the 2016 Election people should pay attention. Kallstrom goes on to call the entirety of the FBI investigation against Donald Trump completely phony. Maria Bartiromo’s own take appears very much to compliment Mr. Kallstrom’s assertions. The Deep State shenanigans run very deep and in 2016 are linked to the Obama White House. Barack Obama

President Trump says he didn´t collude with Russia in 2016, promising something to a foreign country in exchange for his installation as president. That seems increasingly likely to prove true. Where they do not spring from simple malignancy, critics’ arguments that Trump used Russian intervention to win the election are mostly an excuse to avoid the plain truth that Hillary Clinton deservedly lost because she was an awful candidate. And the country is better for that result. We aren’t persuaded, either, that the Russians’ paltry $100,000 in Facebook spending had anything to do with Trump’s win, given that very little of it

Sheila Jackson Lee (D-TX) and Homeland Security Committee Ranking Democrat Bennie Thompson, of Mississippi
