Iran Warns of Risks If Nuclear Deal Fails

The Straits of Hormuz. Killing field for the SS-N-22 Sunburn missiles!

  • Iran Warns of Risks If Nuclear Deal Fails
    by Bozorgmehr Sharafedin, http://www.theguardian.com.au/
    Iran could reduce its co-operation with the UN nuclear watchdog, President Hassan Rouhani has told the body’s head, after he warned US President Donald Trump of “consequences” of fresh sanctions against Iranian oil sales.

    In May, Trump pulled out of a multinational deal under which sanctions on Iran were lifted in return for curbs to its nuclear program, verified by the International Atomic Energy Agency. Washington has since told countries they must stop buying Iranian oil from November 4 or face financial measures.

    “Iran’s nuclear activities have always been for peaceful purposes, but it is Iran that would decide on its level of co-operation with the IAEA,” Iranian state news agency IRNA quoted Rouhani as saying after meeting IAEA head Yukiya Amano in Vienna on Wednesday.

    “The responsibility for the change of Iran’s co-operation level with the IAEA falls on those who have created this new situation,” he added. Rouhani said earlier in the day Tehran would stand firm against US threats to cut Iranian oil sales. “The Americans say they want to reduce Iranian oil exports to zero … It shows they have not thought about its consequences,” Rouhani was quoted as saying by IRNA.

    On Tuesday, Rouhani hinted at a threat to disrupt oil shipments from neighbouring countries if Washington tries to cut its exports. He did not elaborate, but an Iranian Revolutionary Guards commander explicitly said on Wednesday Iran would block any exports of crude from the Gulf in retaliation for hostile US action. “If they want to stop Iranian oil exports, we will not allow any oil shipment to pass through the Strait of Hormuz,” Ismail Kowsari was quoted as saying by the Young Journalists Club (YJC) website.

    Rouhani, in Vienna trying to salvage the nuclear deal, said US sanctions were a “crime and aggression”, and called on European and other governments to stand up to Trump.

  • Trump Reportedly Asked Aides About Invading Venezuela
    by Tyler Durden, https://www.zerohedge.com/
    Apparently, President Trump’s offhanded remarks about sending tanks to Venezuela were more than just a scare tactic. Trump reportedly asked a group of senior administration officials why the US couldn’t simply invade Venezuela during a meeting in the Oval Office, according to the New York Post. The meeting was called to discuss sanctions against members of the Venezuelan regime.

    Trump’s suggestion shocked members of his administration who were in the room, including former Secretary of State Rex Tillerson and former national security adviser HR McMaster. Months later, Trump was told by his aides not to mention his invasion suggestion during private dinner with leaders from four Latin American allies on the sidelines of the UN General Assembly. But he did it anyway, surprising members of his staff. Trump also raised the idea with Colombian President Juan Manuel Santos.

    McMaster was reportedly among the advisors who explained to the president that a strike against Venezuela could jeopardize US support with other Latin American governments that have also condemned Maduro’s treatment of his political opposition. Still, Trump persisted, bringing up the invasions of Panama and Grenada in the 1980s.

US Vows To Keep Gulf Waterway Open After Iran Threatens Blockade

  • US Vows To Keep Gulf Waterway Open After Iran Threatens Blockade
    by Tyler Durden, https://www.zerohedge.com/
    As Americans are busy with July 4th celebrations, the temperature is heating up in the Persian Gulf a day after Iranian President Hassan Rouhani suggested Iran could stop all regional gulf oil exports in retaliation for the US seeking to collapse the nuclear deal, and in response to aggressive new US sanctions. 

    “The Americans have claimed they want to completely stop Iran’s oil exports. They don’t understand the meaning of this statement, because it has no meaning for Iranian oil not to be exported, while the region’s oil is exported,” the state-run website, president.ir, quoted Rouhani as saying. “The Americans say they want to reduce Iranian oil exports to zero… It shows they have not thought about its consequences,” Rouhani said. 

    After the provocative Iranian statements, widely understood as a threat to impose military blockade on the world’s most crucial oil choke point, spokesman for the US military’s Central Command, Captain Bill Urban, told the Associated Press on Wednesday that US sailors and its regional allies “stand ready to ensure the freedom of navigation and the free flow of commerce wherever international law allows”.

    Washington has issued an ultimatum to countries dealing with Iran: halt all imports of Iranian oil from Nov. 4 or face punitive US economic measures with no exemptions.Rouhani called these threats “crime and aggression” and an act of “self-harm” as the unwavering stance is “against U.S. national interests and the interests of other countries.” He said this while in Vienna attempting to rally European governments to stand against Trump’s policies targeting Tehran.

  • “In 2001, Dr. Ariella Oppenheim, of Hebrew University, a biologist, published the first extensive study of DNA and the origin of the Jews. Her research found that virtually all the Jews came from Khazar blood. Not only that but Oppenheim discovered that the Palestinians—the very people whom the Jews had been persecuting and ejecting from Israel’s land since 1948—had more Israelite blood than did the Jews. In sum, the vast majority of the Jews were not Jews; some of the Palestinians were. Some of the Palestinians even had a DNA chromosome which established that they were “Cohens”—workers at the ancient Temple and synagogues of the Jews.” – Quote

Mystery of Alexandria’s Largest Coffin: Archaeologists Unearth 8.6-foot-Long Sarcophagus Buried in Egypt 2,000 Years Ago Beside a Massive Stone Head

According to the archaeologists who led the dig, the black granite sarcophagus stands at 185 centimeters tall (6 feet), 265cm long (8.6 ft), and 165 cm wide (5.4 ft). It’s said to be the largest ever found in Alexandria.

  • Mystery of Alexandria’s Largest Coffin: Archaeologists Unearth 8.6-foot-Long Sarcophagus Buried in Egypt 2,000 Years Ago Beside a Massive Stone Head
    by CHEYENNE MACDONALD FOR DAILYMAIL.COM, http://www.dailymail.co.uk/
    * Experts say black granite sarcophagus found in Alexandria measures 8.6 ft long
    * It was buried 5m deep during Ptolemaic period, which lasted from 332-30 BCE
    * Archaeologists also found alabaster head, likely representing the tomb’s owner

    Egyptian archaeologists have discovered what’s thought to be the largest granite sarcophagus ever found in Alexandria, measuring nearly nine feet long. The massive stone casket was buried more than 16 feet beneath the surface alongside a huge alabaster head – likely belonging to the man who owned the tomb. Experts say the ancient coffin has remained untouched since its burial thousands of years ago during the Ptolemaic period.


    Researchers working under the Supreme Council of Antiquities discovered the ancient tomb during an excavation in the Sidi Gaber district of Alexandria. The team was inspecting a resident’s land ahead of digs planned for the foundation of his building at Al-Karmili Street when they stumbled upon the remarkable Ptolemaic burial 5 meters deep.

    The Ptolemaic period lasted roughly 300 years, from 332-30 BCE, making this particular site more than 2,000 years old. According to the archaeologists who led the dig, the black granite sarcophagus stands at 185 centimeters tall (6 feet), 265cm long (8.6 ft), and 165 cm wide (5.4 ft).

Macron’s Soft Power Push in Africa is Key to ‘Making France Great Again’

Macron said he wanted to rule as a ‘Jupiter’, above the political fray.

  • Have I concluded 100% that Macron is the Man of Sin? NO! He definitely fits the bill in certain aspects. His statement of wanting to rule like Jupiter/Zeus – the Roman god of gods, certainly makes him a top candidate.
  • However, I have found no evidence of him being Jewish. Theologically, the Bible implies that the Man of Sin is a Jew. Would I be surprise if he is really a Jew? Not at all because Satanic bloodlines are very good at hiding their genealogies. Having said this, if for argument sake, someone provides evidence that he is Jewish. Does it mean Macron is definitely the Son of Perdition? My answer is NO! Because the modern definition of a Jew is not the biblical definition. I have shown that modern Jews (90+% of modern Jewry) are NOT semitic people ie. they are NOT the descendants of the 12 tribes of Israel. So, we need to be very discerning with this Jewish bloodline issue of the Anti-Christ.
  • The next theological reason for not concluding 100% that Macron is the one, is that I do not believe 2Thess 2:9-12 has occurred. We don’t want to jump ahead of biblical events but to think in terms of probabilities. The probability is non zero that Macron is the candidate. Events which are about to happen will help us make a more accurate assessment. There is really no need to confirm 100%, he is the one, or reject 100%, he is not the one.
  • Macron’s Soft Power Push in Africa is Key to ‘Making France Great Again’
    by http://www.france24.com/en/
    President Emmanuel Macron arrives Tuesday in Nigeria on his latest soft power mission while attempting to reassure African nations that France’s interest in the continent is more than just colonialism revisited.

    Africa has emerged as a cornerstone of Macron’s effort to boost France’s global influence. A high-profile November trip to West Africa was aimed at redefining France’s relationship with its former colonies Burkina Faso and Ivory Coast, and marked the first official visit by a French president to the Anglophone nation of Ghana.

    Macron has made clear that vigorous French engagement on the world stage would be a priority of his administration, declaring in no uncertain terms that “France is back.”

    And he has largely succeeded in reversing France’s waning influence after just a year in office, according to Christian Lequesne, a specialist in French foreign policy at Sciences Po university in Paris. “We went from being a country in decline to a country that’s moving forward, full of energy,” Lequesne told FRANCE 24 in an interview last month.

    In his first-ever annual address to France’s 170 ambassadors in August, Macron reiterated plans to keep the African continent at the core of his foreign policy, stating his conviction that “the future of the world will largely be played out in Africa”. He has also established a new Presidential Council for Africa, whose 11 inaugural members will advise him on African issues and help him prepare for visits to the continent.

Something Bad Is Headed Our Way Central Bankers Are Ready To Control The Crash: L. Cammarosano

  • The key issue is: what is in it for the Illuminist banksters should they maintain the current system? If they maintain on their current path, who benefits? It definitely benefits Trump. The problem is, Trump is destroying their globalist institutions/agreements, namely: Global Warming Paris agreement, international trade order WTO, transatlantic NATO alliance, US withdrawal from UNHRC, fomenting the breakup of the EU, withdrawing from TPP/TTIP/NAFTA, encouraging nationalism, destroying the globalist MSM …..
  • The actions by Trump are setting back the Illuminati’s plan for a Luciferian New World Order, World Government led by the Anti-Christ. You cannot have a World Government where Trump-USA can just tell the Man of Sin to “Go jump into the lake! Take a hike!”.
  • At some point in time, the Illuminati banksters will pull the plug to thwart Trump. The only way to bring down America and make it subservient to a World Government (apart from Nuclear War) is to destroy the dollar. America as we know it must be destroyed and weakened tremendously so as to not pose a threat to the Luciferian plans.

Michael Pento: Gold Big Beneficiary in Coming October Market Crash?

  • Michael Pento: Gold Big Beneficiary in Coming October Market Crash?
    by Greg Hunter’s USAWatchdog.com 
    Money manager Michael Pento is sounding the alarm because we are getting very close to something called a “yield curve inversion.” Pento explains, “Why do I care if the yield curve inverts? Because 9 out of the last 10 times the yield curve inverted, we had a recession. . . . The spread with the yield curve is the narrowest it has been since outside of the start of the Great Recession that commenced in December of 2007. . . . The last two times the yield curve inverted, we had a stock market drop of 50%. The market dropped, and the S&P 500 lost 50% of its value.”


    Can we keep partying in the markets like it’s 1999 or is there an expiration date for the good times? Pento says, “Well, I have put a check on the calendar for October because of the fact the rate of quantitative easing goes to $15 billion per year, because the trade war will reach a crescendo, then because I believe, unfortunately because I am conservative, the Republicans lose the House of Representatives, because the Chinese credit boom will be in full reverse by October. It is a confluence of events coming in October . . . we’ve already entered into the beginnings of a bear market around the world. The top 22 banks in the world are in a bear market. There are many, many examples of banks around the world that are in a bear market. You have a bear market in Chinese shares. 20% of the S&P 500 is in a bear market. This is an incipient bear market that is already beginning. I believe it manifests clearly to even the people on CNBC by October.”

    Where is there going to be the biggest trouble? Pento says, “I have identified the nucleus of the next recession/depression to be corporate debt and not the housing market. We have a record amount of corporate debt outstanding right now. It is 45% of GDP. It has never ever been higher, but the quality of that debt . . . BBB, which is the lowest rung . . . of investment grade debt accounts for 50% of investment grade. The number of zombie companies is at a record high. . . . So, there is a record amount of debt, the quality of the debt is at a record low, and you have a record amount of companies just existing as zombies. They have to issue debt to pay back existing debt. . . . The amount of zombie companies is going to surge when we get the next recession. The amount of credit defaults is going to surge. . . . The construct of corporate debt is so dangerous that when we hit a recession, defaults are going to skyrocket like we have never seen before. You will be talking about the layoffs and the plunge in the market and economic growth on a global basis.”

    Pento also predicts, “The U.S. is not an island. The U.S. is not going to have 4% GDP growth while the rest of the world implodes. . . . I look at the data, and data says this is the most dangerous market ever. This is the most precarious GDP on a global basis that we have ever had. Global central banks have never before printed $12 trillion. . . . We have never before had that happen, and the reason why they did it is to take sovereign debt into zero and negative territory so we can go on this inflation quest so asset prices don’t implode. That is all turned on its head. They have reached their inflation and it’s starting to unwind, and this whole thing is going to collapse. When it collapses, the primary beneficiary is going to be the gold market. . . . You should always have 5% to 10%, and if you are waiting, you are running out of time to get it cheaply. . . . I don’t think there is much downside to buying physical gold here, and you are running out of time if you have no position at all.”

Palestine Denounces Israeli Freeze on Its Funds as ‘Declaration of War’

Genocide and Ethnic Cleansing by Zionist ‘666’ Israel, the Satanic counterfeit .

  • Palestine Denounces Israeli Freeze on Its Funds as ‘Declaration of War’
    by https://sputniknews.com/
    MOSCOW (Sputnik) – The Palestinian authorities see the Israeli law stipulating the freeze on funds for Palestine as a “declaration of war” on its people, a spokesman for Palestinian leader Mahmoud Abbas, Nabil Abu Rudeineh, said Tuesday.

    “Should this decision be implemented, it will result in the adoption of important decisions by Palestine to counteract this dangerous decision, because the issue concerns red lines, which are not to be either approached or crossed. [The decision] is a declaration of war on the people of Palestine, its defenders, captives, those perished, who were carrying a banner of freedom for the sake of Jerusalem and the establishment of the independent Palestinian State,” the spokesman said in a statement, as quoted by Ma’an News Agency.

    On Monday, the Knesset adopted a law to partially freeze the funds monthly transferred to the Palestinian Authority. The legislation stipulates the freeze of a sum equivalent to 1/12 of the total funds that Palestine paid out to Palestinian prisoners and their families in the previous year.

    According to the bill, if it is established that the Palestinian side has ceased to make such payments, the cabinet will be authorized to decide if and when to transfer the frozen funds. According to the lawmakers, the very payment of funds to prisoners is an “expression of support for acts of terror.”

    Relations between Israel and Palestine have been strained for decades, with the latter seeking diplomatic recognition for their independent state on the territories of the West Bank, including East Jerusalem, which is partially occupied by Israel, and the Gaza Strip.

President Trump Is Putting Huge Pressure on Europe to Reinstate Sanctions on Iran. He’s in for a Tough Sell at the NATO Summit

  • America (and Israel) is waging an economic  war of aggression against Iran. Iran did not attack America. Iran did not threatened American interests. Iran is of NO THREAT to America. It is America (and Israel) which is attacking Iran.
  • President Trump Is Putting Huge Pressure on Europe to Reinstate Sanctions on Iran. He’s in for a Tough Sell at the NATO Summit
    by  “There’s going to be enormous amount of pressure brought to bear on U.S. allies”

    After ripping up the Iran nuclear deal in May, the Trump Administration is fanning out across the globe to rally support for a return to economy-crippling sanctions against Tehran.

    The effort comes ahead of President Donald Trump’s trip next week to Europe, where he is expected to pressure leaders into joining the far-reaching campaign to handcuff major aspects of Iran’s economy, including driving oil exports to zero. If European allies don’t join, Trump has threatened secondary sanctions on any company that does business with Tehran.

    The president hopes his bare-knuckled approach will coerce European leaders to unite behind him, even as they publicly oppose a return to sanctions and scamper to salvage the existing nuclear deal without American participation. It’s a high-stakes test of American leadership, the first of its kind for the Trump Administration’s Iran strategy.

    “The stakes are huge,” said Richard Goldberg, who was lead Senate Republican negotiator for several rounds of Congressionally enacted sanctions that helped pressure Iran into curbing their nuclear program. “There’s going to be enormous amount of pressure brought to bear on U.S. allies to comply.”

Iran to Respect Nuclear Deal ‘as Long as Its Interests Preserved’ – President

  • Iran to Respect Nuclear Deal ‘as Long as Its Interests Preserved’ – President
    by https://www.rt.com/
    Tehran will continue to respect its nuclear agreement with world powers as long as its interests are preserved, President Hassan Rouhani said on Tuesday in a speech in Switzerland. The United States withdrew in May from the 2015 agreement. Under the deal, world powers agreed to lift sanctions on Iran in return for curbs to its nuclear program. Iran has asked European countries to offer new economic measures to offset the impact of a return of US sanctions. Iran said its foreign minister would meet counterparts from US allies Britain, France and Germany, as well as Russia and China, in Vienna on Friday to discuss ways of maintaining the nuclear deal, Reuters reports.
