President Trump Announcement on Iranian JCPOA – 2:00pm EST Livestream…

President Trump is scheduled to make an announcement about his final determination on the future of the Iran Deal, also known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action. Due to EU allies desire to remain in the sketchy deal with Iran, the most likely announcement is a staged U.S. exit over 90-days prior to the re-imposition of sanctions.

The announcement will be delivered during public remarks in the diplomatic room of the White House. Scheduled Time 2:00pm EST.

    I must say, I loved how he worked in the word ‘hostage’ without underlining it. Those who have ears to hear will understand. He also, again without underlining it, gave the Iranian people permission to change their regime. There was a time in living memory when the Iranian and the Israelis were staunch allies. May that time come again and soon…

          No, Mikey – are you freaking kidding me???? Your statement shows you have ZERO knowledge of what happened. Moron Carter refused the Shah’s entry into this country other than for brief medical treatment. The Shah had to leave, and died, and is buried in, Egypt. The only leader who gave any kind of refuge to the Shah was Anwar Sadat. Don’t insult us please with such ridiculous ignorance.

    Hello American friends.I am Israeli. Because I am exterior to American media I can give you some information you may not see locally. First let me begin with, I really think Trump is going to be one of the greatest leaders of the free world in history! Now here is my take about Iran.
    At this moment, minutes after Trump’s announcment it appears that Israel is striking Iranian targets in Syria. In the last few days the Israeli military went into the highest alert. The citizens at the north were ordered by the army to prepare their shelters. So it looks like a coordinated plan with the US to roll Iran back and possibly cause a revolution in Iran by getting them suffer both militarily and financially. They will have to give up their centrifuges and back out of nations they don’t belong there like Syria and Yemen. Also you may not know but Iran is made of many many ethnic groups and this regime is on a borrowed time. They can’t hold millions hostage forever. (see attached 4:40 PM East US time 8 May 2018) :

          Islamic nations are basically Persians, Arabs, and Turks. They all hate each other. There are subgroups like the Kurds, and others, but the Persians have always considered themselves the elite of the Islamic nations, and have the art, architecture, math, poetry, etc, to prove it.

          I think that this has been suppresed by the barbarism of Khomeni, but it is there. It is more secular in nature than the Turks, and certainly moreso than the Arabs. It can rebuild itself, with half a chance. We will see…

            The Persians have considered themselves the natural rulers of the Middle East ever since Cyrus the Great conquered Babylon. They still bitterly resent their conquest by the Arab Caliphate in the middle 600’s and threw off Arab rule as soon as they could (Saminids), although they frequently they ended up under Turks, who they also dislike for that and the many wars they fought against the Ottomans. It is one reason why they adhere to Shia instead of Sunni Islam. Persia generally always had (relatively) good relations with the Jews down through the ages (The Book of Esther being one example), it is only the current regime that made the Jew the little Satan to justify the abuse and looting of their people and their nation.

      Yes, if you follow Thomas Wictor and Heshmat Alavi on Twitter, you will see that an internal revolution in Iran is coming. Exact date is impossible to predict, but this is the beginning. Their economy was already shaky; once Trump reimposes sanctions, it may completely collapse. And you had best believe there are already factions within Iran ready to overthrow the Iranian Revolutionary Guard.

      Yes, today marked the death knell, not just of the JCPOA, but of the entire Iranian regime. It will take Western media a little while to catch on. Our President moves at light speed. God bless President Trump.

        I am sure the goal is to make a revolution in Iran. CIA has a long history of doing such things. It also appears that Israel has a spy very high in Iran that could be involved. I say it because Mossad managed to obtain the location of their top secret documents and a few days ago their plan of attack of north Israel was exposed in detail.

          I think this time will be different. I think it will be mostly Iranian citizens, aided by Saudi special forces, with the US waiting in the wings. Trump wants to be as hands off as possible and allow the local people in the region to determine their destiny. It is slightly different from when the CIA was blundering around, clumsily setting up puppet regimes.

      “So it looks like a coordinated plan with the US to roll Iran back and possibly cause a revolution in Iran by getting them suffer both militarily and financially.”

      When Netanyahu rolled out his big “Iran” announcement, I found a Jerusalem Post article which detailed a series of meetings held the preceding weekend between Trump, Netanyahu, key members of the Trump Administration (including Defense Secretary Mattis) and the Israeli government. With 48 hindsight it was very clear these meetings finalized the American-Israeli strategy towards Iran and that the planning stage was over.

      It is always significant when the American media *doesn’t* give major coverage to an international story, and that is exactly how it handled the Netanyahu announcement. It was in and out of the news cycle here almost immediately. That in and of itself is a sign something of importance was afoot.

      All signs point to that something being an American-Israeli led effort to isolate, marginalize, and ultimately de-fang Iran.

      Iran is the natural hegemon of the Gulf and the Levant. It has the cultural capacity and resolve to compete with Israel for centuries if necessary. Israel requires a quick, decisive victory in order to avoid economic calamity. But you won’t get that. Iran is will avoid responding to Israeli strikes during in the short to medium future. There will be no war. Instead, Iran in combination with Russia will gradually consolidate its position in Syria and form a unified ‘northern front’ against Israel. The IDF will face Hezbollah to the north, and the pro-Assad coalition in the north-east. The Syrian Arab Army is now the most battle hardened army in the ME. Hezbollah has real conventional combat experience, and an unstoppable arsenal of missiles. Russia is gradually re-arming Assad. Israel won’t dare hit Russian forces for fear of the weapons Putin could supply Hezbollah, or to Iran. Israel is the new Pale of Settlement. Shalom.

      The Saudis have as much to lose as anyone from Iran. Any expansion of Iranian (Shiite) power and influence must come at the expense of the Saudi (Sunni) power and influence.

      Trump spent the first year of his Presidency reinvigorating a sagging Saudi dynasty:

      -He contributed to realigning the succession to get MBS- a younger, more dynamic, much more pro-Western individual- to the head of the line.
      -He allowed Saudi Arabia to put on a lavish ceremony that Western Millennials mocked on Twitter but did much to reinforce the Saudis’ traditional role as the guardians of Arab culture and the custodians of Mecca.
      -He facilitated the injection of much needed military equipment into the Kingdom and established a brand-new multi-national counter-terrorism center within it.
      -He singled out Qatar as a economic facilitator of terrorism and made an example out of it.
      -He gutted Vladimir Putin’s authority and prestige in the Middle East by bombing his client Assad without serious consequence. Putin, Assad, and Iran are all bedfellows. What emasculates one emasculates the others. This is all to SA’s benefit as well.
      -Finally, he crushed ISIS and turned those barbarians from a functioning nation-state into a guerrilla movement. Again, this removes an existential threat to the cultural role the Saudis play in the Arab world.

      And while I can only speculate, I am guessing also he secured the Arab’s quiescence regarding any Israeli military action against Iran.

      In short, Trump has spent the last year reshaping the geopolitical landscape for a confrontation against Iran. And as deeply flawed an ally as the Saudis may be, they will be needed.

    Kind of interesting to see Candidate Trump evolve to POTUS Trump on the Iran deal issue. Though he was an extreme critic of the agreement and vowed to enforced every letter of the agreement even if he didn’t like the deal, he fell short of saying he will pull out of the deal if he became POTUS. He flirted with pulling out of the deal many times, but he never definitively said he would. Iran noticed he was serious about enforcing every detail of the deal and made every effort to comply with it and basically called Trump’s bluff. Iranians didn’t give Trump what he wanted, a valid excuse to pull out.

    Since Iran did not appear to have a seriously violated the deal, Trump did not have the excuse to pull out of the deal base on that premise. His only option was to have Prime Minister Netanyuhu provide him with some political cover via his press conference last week regarding Iran’s cover ups. I like the fact that Trump had the backbone to CHANGE COURSE once he realize the Iranians will follow the deal because it was negotiated in their favor and it was in their best interest to abide by it, at least superficially. Trump or anyone with a brain knows this Iran deal was a farce and it merely created a legal international framework for Iran to eventually develop nuclear weapons in the near future. It was such a bad deal even Trump couldn’t salvage it, so withdrawing was the only option he had to stop a nuclear Iran.

    It didn’t take the hypocrites in the EU; Germany, France and the UK, to affirm their support for Iran. They had been violating sanctions before they were lifted and selling dual use technology as well as dual purpose chemicals to the Iranians for years.

    With Mr. Kerry and Mr. Obama acting as shills for the Iranian government, it would be interesting if the DoJ shook them both down for not registering as agents representing Iran. Plus close down any clearances and privileges they may retained on 20 January 2017.

          The German citizens have been ‘red pilled’ beginning with the election by the millions of deplorables of president Trump.
          Watching president Trump in action since day one has woken them up to their corrupt and duplicitous leadership under Merkel and EU HQ in Brussels.

          They are followers of Q on the 8ch board and the anons who have unearthed mountains of info after intel drops by Q and team.

          What you will see is the change in EU politics that will destroy the deep state Marxist and duplicitous political leaders.

          Think about this way: After freeing the Iranian people is complete beginning with the cancellation of the deep state engineered deal and sale of America’s security via HRC/Barry et al the next target is the EU by president Trump and team.

          Macron and Merkel came to Washington for one purpose only: To convince president Trump to remain the deal made with Iran in place and not to withdraw from it.

          How did that work out? The German population just now getting a fuller picture what had happened in their country.
          Look forward seeing the deplorables in Germany making their stand in the near future – styled and encouraged by the Trump deplorables they too want a president like DT.
          Sadly not reported by the msn but reading the comments on the 8ch board by citizens all over the world our president is very appreciated and thanked by them.

    POTUS did great. We should not be doing business with governments who hate America.

    Two things though…

    1. Something that is poorly communicated about the “Iran Deal” is that it’s about nukes for Iran and that’s it. It was a business deal and the Enemedia does not really explain or talk about the businesses involved. It’s about money and the industries who were going to gain don’t care where money comes from. (Nihilists)

    2. The EU is going to experience bigly economic changes now that Paris/Iran scams done and Brexit almost there. My guess will be more “refugees” will be imported.

    How can anyone take Obama’s comments on Trump’s Iran decision seriously. This from the man who said:

    1) Manufacturing was never coming back

    2) What magic wand does he have

    What a joke!

      The “Iran Deal” was the Munich Agreement on steroids.

      Thankfully, God gave us PDJT in place of Neville Obama.

        Better yet, we didn’t have to wait until we were completely alone and had our backs to the wall like Britain in 1940 to dump the ‘agreement’!

      Don’t forget, he mocked our VSG and said “at least I’m president”. Sorry BO, you were in the White House for 8 years but you were never president. Spender-in-Chief, First Vacationer (on my dime), and Master Manipulator. Presidential?? Get real!

      If this JCPOA that you and the Vietnam vet Anti-American and it was this wonderful document you say it is, why didn’t he submit it to the Senate for ratification instead of the pen and phone thing? Wouldn’t pass the smell test, huh??

      And as was asked earlier, BO and Anti-American Kerry did register as Iranian agents, correct? If not, let the investigation begin!!

        From Comey’s book [page 124]:

        “President Obama could laugh with others, and, as with President Bush, poke fun at himself in some circumstances, such as when Bush told fellow “C” students at a commencement address, “you, too, can be president of the United States.” Unlike Bush, though, I never saw a belittling edge to Obama’s humor, which in my view reflected his confidence.”

        So taking this dropout from the Shavian School of Punctuation’s word for it, “a belittling edge to Obama’s humor would be a reflection of his lack of confidence.

      It’s like all of the attacks have made him stronger and more committed. I think maybe the same thing has happened to Melania too. They were both super strong to begin with, now even more so. They might as well go for it. We’ll all be better for it in the long run.

    I mainly avoid websites anymore, because although I’ve been a Trump supporter since day 1, I grow tired of the internet noise. No, he is not perfect but what do you expect out of politicians (or even outsiders!).

    This inspired me to log in and say, thank God we didn’t get his opponent into office. (Yes, there are several other large things he has done, like the SC appointment, tax reform, regulation reduction, attempts to close our border to illegal immigration….)

    Even if things go south, we’re still much better than we would have been if Trump had not been elected. I hope he continues to stay the course in the face of great opposition, even from so-called “republicans” (they are something, never sure what to call them).

    In all the reporting on Iranian responses, there was an interesting statement by the Iranian Government. “The nuclear deal is now between Iran and 5 other nations”. So, why are all the heads exploding in the US and EU exploding, because this means the Iranians still plan to honor the agreement, even without the US. We know Iran always keeps their word, right?? Plus, as a member of the UN Security Council, the US still has access to those highly accurate compliance reports from the UN Inspectors, right ?? //big sarc

    With this decision Trump has pushed aside the pleas of the UK, France and Germany, the desires of the the Russians and China, the Uniparty and placed the interests of the American people first. It would have been much easier for him to cave. But as we have seen, Trump will go along or defer until a hard decision needs to be made, but he makes the right decision. I guess Iran can try to stay in the deal with the other countries but given a choice US trade or Iran – who would choose Iran?

    I’ve just seen Trump’s speech. I was very gratified watching the speech. There was not one flake of male bovine excreta in the speech. The speech was concise and accurate. President Trump is truly in charge. Trump sat right down afterwards and signed the iran deal away. obama is furious right now. Trump just keeps rolling strikes.

    I recent met an Iranian citizen here in HK! One of the nicest guys I ever met and a pro Trump supporter! He shared with me a lot of insights on what is currently going on in Iran, and have to say I have a lot of sympathy for those people trying to break free! Ironically though, it was our insane politics and CIA coverts that helped destabilise a once democratic nation and turned it into the tyranny that is today! Ugh!

    Q:
    Today, EVIL lost control / leverage of Iran.
    Today, POTUS took control of Iran.
    Today, w/ pending sanctions and military action(s), POTUS will gain more ammunition / intel against THEM.
    Suicide watch.
    The deal kept Iran quiet.
    The goal was to keep POTUS in until impeachment / term end.
    Bigger than people can imagine.
    Treason is 1/10th.
    Ask yourself, why are they panicking?
    Ask yourself, why is UK, France, and Germany so involved?
    Trips to the WH?
    What are they hiding?
    Why is HRC in NZ?
    Is NZ part of 5 Eyes?
    Why is that relevant?
    Suicide watch.

      Intriguing in the intrigue sense of the word.

      Way out of my lane, but from what I could research, although New Zealand and the United States have a bilateral extradition treaty, there may be grounds for refusal that would allow New Zealand to refuse extradition for a person wanted for a “political offense.”

      Why New Zealand would protect HRC is another matter.

      Really need expert comment on this point.

      Bigger than people can imagine…

      Here is what I can imagine.

      The billions Obama paid the Iranians was blackmail money, which Germany, France and England have also paid. The Iran treaty was just cover to transfer the blackmail money.

      Russia or Russians (without Putin’s knowledge) are mixed up in it through the Uranium One deal. Either way (Russia or Russians) it is a mess.

      Iran has dirty bomb teams in Germany, France, England and the U.S..

      That’s what I can imagine.

    Hi and Shalom American brothers and sisters. A friend just texted me a joke that is suitable for today, I want to share, here is the translation:

    The Prime Minister of Iran callers Trump and says: “Donald, I had a wonderful dream. In the dream I saw all of America, all this beautiful country and every building and house had a poster on it.”
    “What was written on the posters?” Asked Trump.
    “The United States of Iran” said the Prime Minister.
    Trump: “You know Ali, I am so glad you called me. Believe it or not, I also had a dream only one days before yours. I saw all of Teheran. It was very prety, More beautiful than ever before, and every house and building had a huge poster hanging on it.”
    “And what was written on the posters?” Asked Ali.
    “I don’t know, I can”t read Hebrew” . Said Trump.

    Have a good day,
    David.

    Fwd: White House Sources: John Kerry’s Stealth Lobbying Backfired, Helped Kill The Iran Deal

      Several legal scholars say Kerry’s actions were a clear violation of the Logan Act.

      The Logan Act states:

      “Any citizen of the United States, wherever he may be, who, without authority of the United States, directly or indirectly commences or carries on any correspondence or intercourse with any foreign government or any officer or agent thereof, with intent to influence the measures or conduct of any foreign government or of any officer or agent thereof, in relation to any disputes or controversies with the United States, or to defeat the measures of the United States, shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than three years, or both.”

      The Boston Herald has called for a full investigation into Kerry’s actions.

      Kerry defended his stance by posting a statement on Twitter Tuesday complaining that Trump’s decision “weakens our security” and “isolates us from our European allies and puts Israel at greater risk.”
