Iran Counters EU Threat Of Snapback Sanctions


#US #Trump #nuclear #agreement #Iran #EU-3 #Germany, #Britain #France #EU #Threat #sanctions #CPOA #deal #UN #politics #international

"U.S. President Donald Trump wants to destroy the nuclear agreement with Iran. He has threatened the EU-3 poodles in Germany, Britain and France with a 25% tariff on their car exports to the U.S. unless they end their role in the JCPOA deal.

In their usual gutlessness the Europeans gave in to the blackmail. They triggered the Dispute Resolution Mechanism of the deal. The mechanism foresees two 15 day periods of negotiations and a five day decision period after which any of the involved countries can escalate the issues to the UN Security Council. The reference to the UNSC would then lead to an automatic reactivation or "snapback" of those UN sanction against Iran that existed before the nuclear deal was signed."

The Murder Of Qassem Soleimani Will Deter No One


"The #Trump administration sees the #US #assassination of #Qassem #Soleimani as a form of deterrence not only with regards to #Iran but also towards #Russia, #China and others. That view is wrong.

The claim that the murder of Soleimani was necessary because of an ' #imminent #threat' has been debunked by Trump himself when he tweeted that 'it doesn't really matter' if there was such a threat or not.

In a speech at the Hoover Institute Secretary of State Mike #Pompeo said that the assassination was part of a new #deterrence strategy. As Reuters reported:"

Battle of the Ages to stop Eurasian integration


#US #China #Russia #Eurasia #integration #politics #international

By Pepe Escobar
..........

"For the US, this is indeed an existential battle – against the whole Eurasia integration process, the #New #Silk #Roads, the Russia-China strategic partnership, those Russian hypersonic weapons mixed with supple diplomacy, the profound disgust and revolt against US policies all across the Global South, the nearly inevitable collapse of the US #dollar. What’s certain is that the Empire won’t go quietly into the night. We should all be ready for the #battle of the #ages."

Coal’s Fall Drives Reductions in 2019, But Gains Short Term


U.S. climate-warming pollution fell modestly in 2019, according to preliminary estimates from the private consultant Rhodium Group.
This decline followed a sharp uptick in carbon emissions in 2018, which had been a worrying reversal after years of moderate, but consistent, reductions.
Despite an overall reduction in greenhouse gases, it appears that non-CO2 emissions – such as methane, a more potent but shorter living GHG – are rising.
The U.S. may generate more power from renewables than coal annually in 2021, for the first time... Show more...

#Impeachment: Do Republicans have more Fun?

Column by #AnnCoulter




Impeachments aren’t what they used to be. Today, young people are supposed to be excited that the president withheld taxpayer money from Ukraine –- a half-billion-dollar foreign aid package that ticks off most Americans under any circumstances, going to a country notable for not being our country, and for a purpose other than the wall.

Michael Avenatti arrested again xD

Federal prosecutors say attorney Michael Avenatti was arrested for violating conditions of his bail by committing multiple state and federal crimes while awaiting trial.




LOS ANGELES -- #MichaelAvenatti, the brash former #attorney for the #porn actress #StormyDaniels, was #arrested for allegedly violating #bail by committing numerous financial #crimes to conceal assets from creditors while living a lavish lifestyle, U.S. prosecutors alleged in a #court document released Wednesday.

#Avenatti was arrested by #IRS agents at a state bar court hearing on Tuesday, where he was facing #suspension of his #license to practice for allegedly #stealing from a client, said Thom Mrozek, spokesman for the #LosAngeles #US Attorney’s office…

"The #Trump administration has given various justification for its #assassination of Major General #Qassem #Soleimani and commander Abu #Mahdi al #Muhandis. It claimed that there was an ' #imminent #threat' of an incident, even while not knowing what, where or when it would happen, that made the assassination necessary. Trump later said the thread was a planned bombing of four U.S. embassies. His defense secretary denied that."

"A recent report published by the Commonwealth Fund found that deaths of #despair are surging across the country. Most strikingly, in eleven states drug overdose deaths tripled in just twelve years, owing mostly to the #opioid epidemic.
After steadily rising for six decades, life expectancy is now declining in the United States. The main culprit, according to the authors of a study published in the Journal of the American Medical Association, is midlife mortality “caused by #drug overdoses, #alcohol abuse, suicides, and a diverse list of organ system diseases.” These deaths of despair are concentrated among the working class, which has seen its wages stagnate, its #debt balloon, its li...

In Iraq The U.S. Is Again An Occupation Force As It Rejects To Leave As Demanded


"*Iraq's Prime Minister Adel #Abdul-Mahdi is following Iraq's Parliament decision to remove all foreign forces from #Iraq. But his request for talks with the #US about the US withdrawal process was answered with a big "F*** You":

......
A #foreign #force that is asked to leave a country and does not do so is an #occupation force. It must and will be opposed.

The #murder of the 31 security forces and the #assassination of #al-Mahandes have still not been #avenged. The #PMU will do their moral duty and fight the foreign occupation forces until they leave.
