Iran has infiltrated into the U.S. political system
Listen to Negar Mortazavi, a known Iran lobbyist, say she is in "close contact" with Team Biden.

And there’s more.
Why is this issue important?

#Iran #Teheran #Coronavirus

Although the corona pandemic in Iran claims more victims every day and, according to official information, more than 32,320 of the 562,705 infected have died from or with Covid-19,
a standardized strategy is still not visible in the war against the pandemic. 28 of Iran's 31 provinces have now reached the highest level of alert. One speaks unofficially of the more than 42,000 dead. In an interview,
Health Minister Said Namaki said that if simple new measures are not taken immediately, "corpses must be collected from the streets." The government subsequently criticized his warning as being quite pessimistic.

Iranian tankers are hiding in Iraqi waters to do their ship-to-ship transfers of crude oil & avoid U.S. sanctions.

U.S. maximum pressure policy targeting #Iran’s regime has been highly effective. Just has a few glitches that need attention.…
Iraq Emerges as New Front for Enforcement of Iran Oil Sanctions

American officials say smugglers are increasingly using Iraqi waters to evade curbs on Tehran’s trade.…
The Iraqi port of Al Faw is one regularly used point of transfer, according to the sources and the documents. There, Iranian tankers offload the crude to other vessels where it is mixed with oil from other sources, such as local crude, to avoid detection.

.@Newsweek is the latest MSM outlet claiming U.S. sanctions deprive #Iran of medicine.

-Iran's Foreign Ministry spox: "... medicine & food, as you know, were not on any sanctions..."
-Iran's state media confirm food/medicine not sanctioned
-Iran rejected int'l aid
Of course, one shouldn't be surprised about such claims in the article when the piece provides a platform for two known #Iran apologists/lobbyists @EllieGeranmayeh & @SinaToossi.

Toosi is a member of @NIACouncil, Iran's disgraced lobby group in the U.S.
For those interested in the truth about U.S. sanctions & #Iran, read this thread citing Iran's own officials & state media literally saying food & medicine have never been sanctioned by the U.S.

Below is my prediction for what would happen if #Azerbaijan achieves a complete military victory in #Nagornokarabakh. Tl;dr: there still won’t be #NKPeace (1 of 11)
2. #Azerbaijan will announce that the #Nagornokarabakh Oblast is no more. The idea of autonomy will be gone. Azerbaijan will invite Armenians back to live as Azerbaijani citizens. None will go back. (We’re assuming that the remaining 60k civilians will safely escape to #Armenia)
3. #Armenia will have a #refugeecrisis. 150k + 400k from the 1st war means 550k refugees. The new rhetoric in Armenia will be how #AzerbaijaniAggression took the homes of these 550k people. To Azeris reading this, just think of the rhetoric you’ve heard regarding your IDPs.

#USA #Iran #WashingtonDC #Sanctions

The U.S. Treasury Department said on Friday it was imposing sanctions on six Iranian entities foe being “complicit in foreign interference in the 2020 U.S. presidential election.”

Débat Trump/Biden (thread)

Ça commence avec la #COVID; la présentatrice dit que seuls 40% des américains accepteraient de se faire piquer, si ce vaccin est proposé par le gouvernement. 🚮

Sinon #Trump et #Biden blablatent pour ne rien dire ...

Trump (parlant de Biden) : "lui il aime se cacher dans un sous-sol. 99% des gens se rétablissent. On ne peut pas fermer le pays".

Biden: "Trump n'a rien fait. On en meurt. On va perdre 200000 personnes de plus".

#Biden: "c'est l'inaction de Trump qui a forcé la fermeture des entreprises. Les écoles ont besoin de beaucoup d'argent, de nouveaux systèmes de ventilation ...".

#Trump : "les gouverneurs démocrates ont tout fermé, tout confiné, et les gens meurent".

Read my investigation into #Iran's Me Too:

Sexual abuse allegations surfaced against more than 100 men on social media, the most prominent an internationally famous artist Aydin Aghdashloo.

2/ Iran’s MeToo movement is one of the most important and difficult stories I’ve reported in years.
3/ Thank you to the dozens of Iranian women who agreed to talk to me. Speaking about sexual abuse requires courage, especially in Iran’s conservative society where discussing sex is culturally and socially prohibited. When things go wrong, women are often blamed.

🚨BREAKING: over recent days, #Russia🇷🇺has hacked into state and local computer networks in US voting infrastructure.

US intel agencies say Russia plans to interfere in the election in its final days or immediately after the election to *help Trump*.🤬…
US intel says there is “no evidence that the Russians have changed any vote tallies or voter registration information.” US officials expect that if the race is not called on election night, Russians sow chaos and doubts about the integrity of the results.🤬

‼️The Russian hackers got inside some election administrators’ systems and had access to voting information. What alarmed officials was the targets, the timing—the attacks began 2 months ago—and the adversary.

3)A large number of #MEK members &supporters were killed or taken prisoner by #Iraqi troops. The MEK was also locked in a political struggle against the mullahs as it called for a democratic outcome of the revolution while the mullahs sought to instill a theocratic dictatorship.

Director of National Intelligence John Ratcliffe and FBI Director Christopher Wray announced Wednesday that #Iran and Russia are working to undermine the integrity of the 2020 election.…
Iran & Russia got their hands on U.S. voter registration information, enabling the foreign adversaries to send false information to registered voters as a means to sow chaos & confusion & undermine the public’s confidence in America’s electoral process.
The foreign nations aren’t the only disseminators of false information. American groups including Never Trump operation the Lincoln Project served as #Iran’s American digital foot soldiers, buying into the disinformation & amplifying it.
The Lincoln Project deleted this tweet.
