2) “The Trump administration seems determined to cut Iran off from the global financial system. As it reimposes sanctions on the regime next month, it may take aim at the Swift messaging network that enables cross-border payments worldwide. This is a bad idea.”
3) What is SWIFT?
“SWIFT stands for the Society for Worldwide Interbank Financial Telecommunications. It is a messaging network that financial institutions use to securely transmit information and instructions through a standardized system of codes.” investopedia.com/articles/perso…
Kavanaugh & his former boss, Ken Starr, pursued Clinton relentlessly over a consensual albeit inappropriate affair. In 2010, Starr was forced out as president of Baylor for having grossly mishandled sexual assault claims to the detriment of victims. 1/ texastribune.org/2017/12/20/cou…

U.S. State Dept. @statedeptspox:
The U.S. stands with the Iranian people.
We call on all nations to support the Iranian people by not investing in Iran that supports the regime.
U.S. Special Envoy for Iran Brian Hook: #Iran's regime must be pressed for its human rights violations.
The so-called moderates represent a regime that continues to repress Iranians on a daily basis.
Iran's regime must stop persecuting civil society.
U.S. Special Envoy for Iran Brian Hook: #Iran's regime targets minorities.
Khomeini promised more freedom, more prosperity & an end to corruption.
This regime has failed for 39 years. The Iranian people know that.
We will continue to stand with the Iranian people.
1. Woke up 3hrs too early, queasy and stressed. 2mins from now, we will likely be witness to a national misogynistic sham so deep and so blatant as to prove once and for all that the powerbrokers of US government do not believe women are human. #Kavanaugh#BelieveSurvivors#RAGE
3. 0 reason other than corruption, misogyny, and partisanship for having no witnesses, no FBI investigation. Yet hypocrite Grassley, opens saying he wants a "Safe, comfortable, and dignified" hearing and a "show of civility"--then immediately misrepresents the issues. #Kavanaugh
We should start where it mattered the MOST. The #CivilWar Era.
The #Democrats did NOT want slaves to have rights. They wanted to keep these black men and women as PROPERTY. They didn't want them to be able to vote. They were "property" and "commodities".
A more radical arm of the #DemocraticParty known as the "Ku Klux Klan" or #KKK were known for threatening, harming, and even killing FREE black men and women. Historians still debate whether the KKK's original grassroots movement is what lead to the #CivilWar.
It is profoundly hypocritical to claim that faithful Christians reject social pressures and ONLY preach the gospel, while at the same time defending your theological heroes who were “gospel preaching” racist white supremacists by saying, “they were just products of their time.”
If this was really abt gospel over societal influence, than why celebrate white supremacist Christians who folded to social pressure? If Christian faithfulness was marked by social resistance, Christian Abolitionists would be celebrated over racist preacher theologians.#Hypocrisy
Here’s the thing tho. Fundamentalism/Evangelicalism is quite literally one of the only theological traditions within the global church that sees Christianity as only about preaching & believing the gospel. To everyone else, the Gospel is the door into a robust life & faith...

Around 20 #NHS staff in a letter told - Theresa May of their “great sorrow and shame” that “hostile environment” immigration policies which she initiated are leading to needless suffering and early death.
#BREAKING - #IranUpdate
-Images of store owners in the capital's Soltani bazaar on strike.
-Authorities have dispatched security forces in fear of escalating tensions.
-People rushing to stores to purchase goods in fear of skyrocketing prices #IranProtests
#BREAKING - #IranUpdate
Reports from a variety of cities across #Iran indicate stores are closing down.
Security forces are on high alert to confront possible protests and unrest. #IranProtests
(1) By using the words “fringe” & “extremists,” it’s obvious, and a shame, that @OARichardEngel has been dictated quite precisely by #Iran apologists & maybe even received money from Tehran.
This is an insult to journalism.

Research, discoveries, witnessess, additional area vics, same white collar organized criminals preying on my family since the mid 70's, PROVED, responsible for heinous crimes against my family & several others across the state & local 2 Hibbing, Chisholm, Iron Range Minnesota👇
468-How do I know these two organizations are associated? and/or work together? ☝️
Good question & is super hard to pinpoint. Sometimes is due to common projects in same locations (usually masked by a third or fourth party), & sometimes are certain names that pop in both #Q
469-But sometimes, it is due to silly little mistakes like this article 👇
Here Dr. #Lee is credited with #COTN, except the charity 'children of the night's' site was never #COTN but this one childrenofthenight.org
Sure this might just be all coincidence and/or mistake
(2) @jrezaian claims the regime will respond “with the behavior of a bully, by ratcheting up pressure on the people it rules over.”
He doesn't mention how #Obama’s JCPOA gave #Iran the green light to continue its execution inside the country & havoc across the region. #Hypocrisy
(3) Interesting how @jrezaian claims there “won’t be any attacks on Israel” and on the very same day #Iran’s IRGC-associated proxy groups in #Syria launched rockets towards the Golan Heights.
When @JZarif says, "#Iran never raced towards a bomb, nor will it race towards a bomb," rest assured it is the exact opposite.
We will realize how Tehran sought nuclear arms for decades. For a country sitting on an ocean of oil & gas, a "peaceful" nuclear program is meaningless.
A very telling cartoon about #NorthKorea & #Iran, as Pyongyang signals indications to set aside its nuclear weapons/ballistic missile program. This is leaving Tehran as now sole target of the international community's soon-to-come pressures.
For those who describe #Iran's FM @JZarif as a "moderate" or "reformist"
