Goal of Natanz explosion was to send
‘clear’ message to Iran

Original Article

Posted By: John C, 9/16/2020 9:55:23 AM

An explosion two months ago at Natanz, a key Iranian uranium enrichment facility, was meant to send a message of determination to stop the Islamic Republic’s nuclear program, The Jerusalem Post has learned. The purpose of the attack was to send an unambiguous deterrent message that progress toward a nuclear weapon beyond certain redlines would not be tolerated. Additionally, the Post has confirmed foreign reports that the explosion was caused by physical sabotage as opposed to exclusively cyberwarfare weapons. To date, Iran has made multiple announcements, but has not accused Israel at an official level

This building is a big loss to Iran. Maybe obama can set up a go fund me page for them.

Ha! What original poster said. The Israelis are survivors. Iran's mullahs don't seem to realize the danger they're in. Kerry and Obama are no longer in charge.

The Persian leaders need to grasp that they will not be permitted to have nuclear weapons. One way or another.

Sooner or later (and it's looking like sooner), the Israelis and most of the Arab nations will realize that they have more in common -- preventing the Persians in Iran from taking over the Middle East through terrorism -- than they differ, It's the old "the enemy of my enemy is my friend" rule. Welcome, friends!

If Harris (and, oh yeah, I guess Biden) becomes President, the US will replace the building destroyed and help the Iranians catch up on any time lost developing nuclear weapons.

I pray November 4th will send a pretty clear message to Iran. They had better build another fake aircraft carrier because they broke the last one.

Why doesn’t Gov. Charlie Baker just get it over with and switch parties and become a Democrat? By the numbers, he’s the worst governor in America.   Highest unemployment rate in the U.S.: 16.1%. Third-highest death rate in the U.S.: 131 per 100,000.   Of the 8,791 deaths in Massachusetts, 5,781 have been in the nursing homes the governor is responsible for keeping safe. And the nursing-home slaughter continues unabated —26 of the last 36 deaths this week have occurred in those same death houses whose operators gave $52,000 to the governor Joe Biden calls “Charlie Parker.” Average age of Massachusetts decedents: 85.

While many students in Massachusetts will start the school year with remote learning, some teachers are upset that they will still have to report to the classroom. "My husband and I are both teachers. I have a kindergartner starting school in a hybrid model, and a 7-month-old at home," said Emily Mackie. Mackie is currently juggling life as a parent and a third-grade teacher in Brookline, where school is scheduled to start in a remote model in the fall. But under the recent state guidelines issued by Education Commissioner Jeffrey Riley, teachers are still being instructed to teach from their classrooms, even during remote learning.

You recycle your beverage containers and cardboard, and even your electronics. But what about your drugs? A St. John’s company is well on its way to making them recyclable, too. Unbound Chemicals was incorporated last year, although it took about three years to get the research and planning underway. “You need a bit of a runway before you can take a go at it,” founder and chief executive officer Blaine Edwards said in an interview Friday. Last month, the startup achieved a major milestone in its laboratory research, successfully extracting the active ingredient trimipramine from pills that expired in 2018. Trimipramine is a common antidepressant. Not only did they succeed, they exceeded expectations.  Correction*

The Bureau of Land Management on Thursday took a step toward development of the Willow oil prospect in the National Petroleum Reserve-Alaska, a large ConocoPhillips effort that could help revive Alaska’s sagging economic fortunes, though critics say it endangers polar bears and the climate. The agency, releasing the final environmental review of the project, said the development could produce more than 160,000 barrels of oil daily over 30 years, helping offset dwindling oil production and state revenues in Alaska. Construction would produce more than 1,000 jobs, and lead to more than 400 jobs when it begins operating.

A Fox News panel scolded and cut away from former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich after he linked liberal billionaire George Soros to the violent riots that have caused damage across the country over the last few months. “The No. 1 problem in almost all the cities is George Soros-elected, left-wing, anti-police, pro-criminal district attorneys who refuse to keep people locked up,” Gingrich said to a panel on Fox News’s Outnumbered on Wednesday. “Both Harris and Biden have talked very proudly about what they call progressive district attorneys. Progressive district attorneys are anti-police, pro-criminal, and overwhelmingly elected with George Soros’s money.

Have Portland’s Professional Protesters™ been smoked out? Since May 29th, Portland has been the back drop of more than 100 nights of antifa, anarchist and Black Lives Matter, Inc™ terroristic riots. They set fires, looted, and intimidated people by threatening to burn them alive in their homes. But after the millions of dollars of destruction, criminality and thuggery it stopped last week. Poof!

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi defended how she has handled her relationship with President Trump — after it was pointed out that the two leaders haven’t spoken in almost a year amid mounting crises. Speaking to MSNBC’s Craig Melvin on Monday, Pelosi (D-Calif.) faced pushback after repeatedly saying “Forget him” while answering a question about countering the commander-in-chief’s rhetoric and narrative. Melvin noted to the nation’s highest elected Democrat that, “with all due respect, you just said, ‘Forget him.'” “Yeah, forget him,” she responded. The MSNBC host then asked if she and the president had “just stopped talking? Is that where we are?” “You haven’t talked to him about the wildfires,

Liberal Fox News contributor Juan Williams seems unable to give President Donald Trump any credit for anything, not even multiple peace deals in the Middle East. On Tuesday, during an episode of The Five, Juan Williams claimed that the recent peace deals between Israel and the United Arab Emirates and Bahrain that Trump negotiated a “distraction” and that rather than achieving peace they are “accelerating” the “chance of war” in the Middle East. Williams made his argument while he and his co-panelists were discussing Nancy Pelosi’s recent remarks that the peace deals were a “distraction.”

Approximately 150 pregnant Black and Pacific Islander women in San Francisco will receive a $1,000 monthly supplement during their pregnancies and for the first six months of their babies' lives, the city's mayor announced. Mayor London Breed's (D) office said on Monday that the Abundant Birth Project is the first of its kind in the country. The project's goal is to eventually provide a supplement for as long as two years post-pregnancy. “Providing guaranteed income support to mothers during pregnancy is an innovative and equitable approach that will ease some of the financial stress that all too often keeps women from being able to put their health first,” Breed said.

Pennsylvania’s highest court gave the Democratic Party a series of victories Thursday, including one allowing repairs to glitches and gray areas in the battleground state’s fledgling mail-in voting law and another that kicked the Green Party’s presidential candidate off the November ballot. The state Supreme Court, which has a 5-2 Democratic majority, granted the Democratic Party’s request to order a three-day extension of Pennsylvania’s Election Day deadline to count mailed-in ballots. And it ruled that the Green Party’s candidate for president did not strictly follow procedures for getting on the ballot in November and cannot appear on it.

By now, it’s the worst kept secret in the world that Joe Biden is having cognitive difficulties. (snip) Rush Limbaugh, however, has noticed another piece in the puzzle, and this one yields to empirical evidence rather than first-hand knowledge. This is the fact that, other than the long-ago Democrat debates and his acceptance speech (which may have been live, rather than prerecorded), Biden is never seen at night. (snip) Biden may be suffering from sundowning, something strongly associated with dementia in the elderly, especially with Alzheimer’s. Sundowning is so named because it consistently appears as the sun is setting.
