America, Family, and Frozen: The rising risk of showdown between Trump and Iran By Kambiz Fattahi BBC Persian Service G 21 February 2017 Middle East AFP Iran-US hostility eased under President Obama but is threatening to intensify again Are the US and Iran heading for a new confrontation? After a turbulent first three weeks in which President Donald Trump described Iran as "the world's number one terrorist state" and put it "on notice", it is a question many are asking. For Iranians with connections in the United States, these are worrying times. Of the seven majority Muslim countries named in President Trump's January travel ban (frozen pending a legal review), Iran is the one with the largest US-based diaspora, the most overseas students and the highest number of people travelling on visitor visas. After the ban was announced, BBC Persian received hundreds of messages from anxious Iranians whose lives have been plunged into uncertainty. They come from all walks of life - research students, LGBT (lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender) refugees and grandparents on family visits - and many are worried the story is far from over. Edit Across the country people are asking themselves if he will really deliver on his promise to "rip up" the 2015 Iran nuclear deal and "triple-up" sanctions. And if the war of words between Washington and Tehran continues, what will the impact be on Iran's presidential elections this May?On the campaign trail Donald Trump dismissed the Iran nuclear deal as "disastrous", but Iran experts say comments by his new Secretary of Defence James Mattis are probably the best indicator of what lies ahead. "I think it is an imperfect arms control agreement," Mr Mattis told a Senate committee in January. "But when America gives her word, we have to live up to it." Edit If Mr Trump walks away he will risk alienating the European Union, the United Kingdom, France, Germany, China and Russia, which would make enforcing any new sanctions more difficult. But there are more subtle ways of undermining the agreement, says Nader Hashemi, of the Centre for Middle East Studies at the University of Denver. "I suspect Trump will try to strictly enforce the nuclear deal, hoping that Iran will break the agreement and thus be blamed internationally for it." trump iran notmypresident impeachtrump dumptrump protest resist illegitimatepresident

Memes, 🤖, and Leaks: 18 WTF Moments From Trump's Unhinged Press Conference RIDING THE CRAZY TRAIN. CARTOONS IT'S THE MEDIA'S FAULT THAT I APPEAR CRAZY. Rollingstone Magazine 1-15-17 Donald Trump took questions from the media on Thursday. The hastily called press conference came as a surprise to reporters, who would typically have had a briefing with White House Press Secretary Spicer during that time. (According to reports, Trump walked into the Oval Office earlier that morning and said, "Let's do a press conference today."). It quickly devolved into one of the most remarkably incoherent spectacles in recent memory.That time he batted back reports of chaos in the West Wing "I turn on TV, open the newspapers and I see stories of chaos – chaos – yet it is the exact opposite. This administration is running like a fine-tuned machine." That time he confirmed the veracity of the leaks that lead to Flynn's resignation "The leaks are absolutely real. The news is fake because so much of the news is fake." That time he couldn't say Flynn lied "The thing is, he didn't tell our VP properly, and then he said he didn't remember ... that just wasn't acceptable to me." That time he characterized the rollout of his travel ban as "smooth" "We had a very smooth rollout of the travel ban; we had a bad court." That time he called the country of Russia fake news "Russia is fake news. Russia – this is fake news put out by the media. The real news is the fact that people, probably from the Obama administration because they’re there, because we have our new people going in place, right now." That time he denied knowledge of whether anyone from his team colluded with the Russian government during the campaign "Nobody that I know of. How many times do I have to answer this question? Russia is a ruse. I have nothing to do with Russia. Haven't made a phone call to Russia in years." That time he bragged about not being a bad person "And I'll tell you what else I see. I see tone. You know the word 'tone'? The tone is such hatred. I'm really not a bad person, by the way. No, but the tone is such – I do get good ratings, you have to admit that – the tone is such hatred." trump dumptrump treason impeach ivanka melania notmypresident protest resist unfit liar

Memes, Front Row, and 🤖: Donald Trump publicly embraced Michael Flynn today, proving they're both guilty on Russia This was a day when Donald Trump should have fired National Security Advisor Michael Flynn without thinking twice. Flynn was caught red handed over the weekend having colluded with the Russian government both before and after election day. Firing him today would have scuttled Trump’s Russia scandal for awhile. There was even the opportunity to bury Flynn’s firing within the larger story of the Canadian Prime Minister being in town. Instead Trump made a point of doing the precise opposite, embracing Flynn today – and now we know they’re both guilty. Donald Trump walked into his Canadian joint press conference this afternoon, went directly up to Michael Flynn, who was conspicuously seated in the front row, and made a point of shaking his hand while the cameras in the room were all watching. The handshake was broadcast live by CNN among others. The message could not have been more clear: whatever Trump thinks of Flynn, he afraid of the consequences of him. And this came less than a full day after Trump had told advisors that he was planning to ban Flynn from the White House. But instead of going through with it, Trump made a point of marrying himself to Flynn today for all to see. The revelations about Flynn have now given Trump’s detractors, both in the government and among the public, a tangible basis for continuing to shine a light on Trump’s election collusion with Russia. So long as Trump doesn’t fire Flynn, that spotlight will continue to grow hotter, and burn Trump eventually. He knows it, and yet he’s embracing Flynn in the White House anyway. That tells us they’re both guilty – and the impeachment clock is ticking.🕕 ____________________________________________________ hillary hillaryclinton hillary2020 notmypresident trumpprotest hillaryforamerica hillaryforpresident womenforhillary likeforlike latinosforhillary donaldtrump imwithher alternativefacts bowlinggreenmassacre impeachtrump corruptaf nevertrump kakistocracy corrupt crookedtrump LGBTQ imstillwithher strongertogether resist kellyanneconway blackfriday travelban blackandwhite YaaasHillary @hillaryclinton michaelflynnn
