The Mullahs in Iran and Biden administration reportedly agreed to “resume nuclear talks” this week just years after President Donald Trump scrapped the agreement that he often labeled “the worst deal in history.”
“Negotiations to restore the 2015 Iran nuclear deal will take place among all parties in Vienna next week, senior Western diplomats said Friday, the first serious effort to rescue the agreement since President Biden took office in January,” reports the Wall Street Journal.
“Senior officials from all participants in the accord, Iran, France, Germany, the U.K., Russia, China and the European Union, as well as top U.S. officials, will gather in the Austrian capital from Tuesday. However, there will be no direct discussions for now between U.S. and Iranian officials, the diplomats said,” adds the newspaper.
“There are really significant technical and really significant political constraints on both sides,” said Henry Rome, senior Iran analyst at Eurasia Group in Washington. “I think ultimately there is enough interest on both sides for making this happen, but we shouldn’t underestimate the challenge of getting to yes.”
“They messaged us that maybe the best thing would be for each side to make an initial gesture that would pave the way to those talks,” a senior U.S. official said. “They wanted some sanctions relief and in return they would reverse some nuclear steps they had taken in contravention of the JCPOA. It was their idea, and we went along.”

BIDEN to VETERANS: ‘US Troops Died in IRAN and Afghanistan’

Biden continued to confuse millions of Americans Tuesday when he told a roundtable in Florida that the country doesn’t “need more fossil fuels” just moments after arriving in the Sunshine State via his private jet.
“Much people only focused on the environmental impact, what that would mean, especially since we don’t need more fossil fuel. What we need is more renewable energy. I can guarantee you if I’m President there will be no off-shore drilling!” said Biden.

Biden angered some climate-change activists on the far-left Tuesday when he arrived in Florida for his first campaign stop aboard a giant private plane before entering a giant SUV motorcade.
“Joe Biden has arrived in Tampa, Florida for his first visit to the state as the Democratic nominee. He is hosting a roundtable with veterans here and then a Hispanic Heritage Month event in Kissimmee,” posted a reporter from USA Today on social media.

Harris raised eyebrows among some of her climate change supporters on social media last Thursday after arriving in Miami in a private jet and being escorted into her SUV motorcade.
“Wheels down in Miami,” posted Harris.
“From a fossil fuel guzzling private plane to a fossil fuel guzzling SUV. Democrats don’t think the rules they want for everybody else should apply to them!” responded the Trump campaign.

Climate change is real and it poses a grave threat to our nation and our planet. It’s abundantly clear this Adminstration won’t tackle climate change head on, so state and local governments must. https://t.co/mrH5zlpyJD

Harris directly attacked the Trump administration over the issue in 2017, writing “Climate change is real and it poses a grave threat to our nation and our planet. It’s abundantly clear this Administration won’t tackle climate change head on, so state and local governments must.”

DEMS GO SILENT: After Trashing Trump’s Drone Strike, Dems Go Quiet on Pro-Democracy Protests
Top Democrats clammed-up this week after blasting President Trump’s US Drone Strike against a top Iranian General; largely dismissing the growing pro-Democracy protests sweeping the streets of Tehran and beyond.
“Democratic congressional leaders and presidential candidates who were unsparing in their criticism of President Trump for the escalation with Iran over the past two weeks largely have gone silent now that the protests on the streets of Tehran and beyond have turned their rage toward the regime — and not the Trump White House,” reports Fox News.
“Even as videos emerged online Monday that purportedly show Iranian police and security forces firing live ammunition to disperse protesters, so far among the 2020 Democratic candidates only former Vice President Joe Biden and Sen. Amy Klobuchar, D-Minn., have spoken out in support of the people,” adds Fox.
“The Iranian people walk around the US and Israeli flags on the ground – rather than walk on them,” posted Richard Grenell, the US Ambassador to Germany.

“Videos emerged online Monday that purportedly show Iranian police and security forces firing live ammunition to disperse demonstrators protesting against the Islamic Republic after the country mistakenly downed a Ukrainian airline plane shortly after takeoff from Tehran,” reports Fox News.
“There was no immediate report in Iranian state-run media on the incident near Azadi, or Freedom, Square in Tehran, but, if true, could be seen as an act of defiance against President Trump who warned the regime against the use of deadly force,” adds Fox.
President Trump tweeted his support for the Iranian demonstrators on social media, warning leaders in Tehran “Don’t kill your protesters.”
