Pay attention to the speeches of the political figures at the conference last July entitled "Firm Policy Against the Iranian Regime."
They emphasized the need to confront the Iranian regime & support the #Iran|ian resistance(#NCRI).

1)
U.S. President Donald Trump has fired John Bolton as his national security advisor.

My take:
Bolton's positions on various issues were in high contrast with others in the Trump admin, including the President.
2)
#Iran apologists/lobbyists will be celebrating.
Yet I believe it will be short lived. Never forget that Trump is in charge & Trump is not Obama, no matter who his advisors are.
3)
It is true that U.S. President Donald Trump may be thinking of November 2020 in this decision.
However, if he softens up on #Iran, he can easily be labelled as another Obama. Thus, whoever is appointed as the next White House NSA, Trump's #MaximumPressure policy will continue.

@jrezaian’s latest WaPo piece proves how desperate #Iran’s regime has become as sanctions are crippling the mullahs.

Rezaian’s rushed piece is titled:
“Like it or not, talks with Iran are coming soon”

“French President Emmanuel Macron delivered an important reality check on the war of ideas between the U.S. and Iran. The bottom line: Tehran is winning. If anyone needed proof, witness Macron’s decision to invite Iran’s foreign minister, Mohammad Javad Zarif, to the meeting.”

#Iran's sanctioned FM @JZarif just tweeted citing #Iran's "Journalist Day".

A reminder about how the mullahs' regime treats journalists.

"Iran has been one of the world’s most repressive countries for journalists for the past 40 years."

"State control of news and information is unrelenting and at least 860 journalists and citizen-journalists have been imprisoned or executed since 1979."

“We call for the immediate release of journalists held arbitrarily & urge the regime to stop suppressing the freedom to inform... Obstructing press freedom & arresting journalists do not in any help to combat corruption.”

I remember just a short while ago when #Iran regime apologists/lobbyists were jumping up & down claiming Tehran was exporting large amounts of oil to China.

Knowing their nature, I had a strong feeling they were lying.

Here’s the proof.
bloomberg.com/news/articles/…

“Two and a half months after the White House banned the purchase of Iran’s oil, the nation’s crude is continuing to be sent to China where it’s being put into what’s known as ‘bonded storage,’… This oil doesn’t cross local customs or show up in the nation’s import data…”
3)
“The store of oil has the potential to push down global prices if Chinese refiners decide to draw on it…”

This actually shows how desperate Iran’s mullahs have become. Willing to store oil, hoping to maybe one day sell them at even lower prices.

My take:
Considering how the mullahs spend their money fueling terrorism, this is well worth the effort.

Interesting how MSM & #Iran’s state media were silent on a very important subject.
In his visit to Germany on May 30, U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo called on Tehran to immediately & unconditionally approve all FATF anti-money laundering/terrorism financing bills.

“Iran has also utterly failed to meet its commitments under the Financial Action Task Force action plan that it had agreed to, that Iran had agreed to back in 2016…

Unprecedented:

This is a first for @SecPompeo to officially demand #Iran’s regime ratify FATF-related treaties.

The FATF Plenary & Working Group meetings will convene from June 16-21 in Orlando, Florida.

This is Tehran’s deadline.
