Let’s talk about Caleb T. Maupin (@calebmaupin), another #Iran regime apologist/lobbyist, who introduces himself as a “journalist.”
Why am I discussing Maupin?
#Iran’s state-run “Youth Journalists Club,” affiliated to the Revolutionary Guards (IRGC) ran this story today:
“Young American bravely confronts members of the terrorist grouplet monafeqin outside the UN”…
At a first glance, one may think wow! A brave American reporter coincidentally runs into a demonstration of “terrorists” in the middle of New York!

To be completely fair, here’s the video he posted of his encounter.

U.S. President Donald Trump on #Iran's regime:
"I'm not meeting with them until they change their tune. It will happen. I believe they have no choice."

Debunking Brian Hook's false narrative on #Iran:

#JCPOA #Irandeal #BrianHook

1) Hook talked about Iran's "lawless" pursuit of ballistic missiles. The word "lawless" is meaningless in this context. He used it because he cannot use the terms "illegal" or "unlawful" in good conscience. He knows that Iran's missile program is legal under Int'l law.
2) Hook admitted that UNSC Res. 2231 lifted the prohibition on Iran’s missile program. He also admitted that Res. 2231 "superseded" previous Res. 1929 which had instituted the prohibition.

Let’s talk about #Iran’s @JZarif complaining about @Twitter shutting down what he claims are “real Iranians.”
First of all, it is a known fact that #Iran’s regime is accused of running fake accounts across social media platforms.…
“… Facebook announced that it removed hundreds of inauthentic pages, groups, and accounts on its platform that were used to ‘mislead others about who they were and what they were doing.’”…

He is. And it's ILLEGAL.

Assistant Secretary of State @manishasingh and @AriFleischer: It would be “very inappropriate” if @JohnKerry is conducting shadow diplomacy with Iran…
"This is his [Kerry's] entire career. He spent four of the past 50 years or so conducting official diplomacy on behalf of the United States and chunks of the rest of it conducting diplomacy on behalf of himself and his political allies."
"Negotiating with enemies with zero White House authority isn’t an aberration for him. It’s just sort of what John Kerry does. Imagine him waking up today, nearly 50 years into it, and finding out it’s 'very inappropriate.'"

Months ago I pointed out that if the EU didnt put down its foot and stop Trump from killing the #IranDeal, Trump would proceed to kill the next international agreement and then the next.

John Bolton's attack on ICC should be seen in that context.

2. Trump seeks to destroy the entire international system to bring us back to the law of the jungle. In his primitive thinking, such an international (dis)order will be to the benefit of the US (and Israel) because of their military strength.
3. That is utterly bizarre. Not only does this incentivize other countries to build up their militaries (making the world and the US less safe), but smart states use their strength today to establish rules that will protect them even when their relative strength wanes.

Iran's AEOI Chief, Salehi tells Iran-Newspaper that if #JCPOA collapses Iran will most likely will stop implementing the Additional Protocol of #NPT- Says he's not the decision maker on the issue and "higher officials" will make the final decision.
Salehi adds that according to FM Zarif, some inside the country believe that if #JCPOA is undermined, then #Iran must abandon the #NPT because Iran is not benefits from it Adds, there will be severe consequences for it that "I don't want to think about them," #IranDeal
Salehi says @realDonaldTrump 's personality encourages him to "undo anything that [President] Obama had done. @BarackObama was the first black person that could become US President& was able to resolve some of the important international issues such as Cuba, Climate Change& #Iran

Pres. Obama is right. It is wrong for a President to use divisive language, such as:
1. Call all opponents of same-sex marriage bigots
2. Call the Pro-Life movement a "War on Women"
3. Call all immigration enforcement advocates racists
4. Call the GOP the enemy of Hispanics
How about when he made a joke about former First Lady
Nancy Reagan conducting seances?
Barack Obama on people left behind by new economy: “And it’s not surprising then they get bitter,they cling to guns or religion or antipathy toward people who aren’t like them or anti-immigrant sentiment or anti-trade sentiment as a way to explain their frustrations.”

What I remember about President Obama:

- Turning his back on #Iran's 2009 uprising
- Allowing Assad gas innocent civilians in #Syria
- Selling off America's Middle East allies
- Bending over backwards to reach a highly flawed #IranDeal with Tehran's mullahs

Need I say more?
What I remember about President Obama:

"the Obama administration derailed an ambitious law enforcement campaign targeting drug trafficking by the Iranian-backed terrorist group Hezbollah"…
What I remember about President Obama:

"Two high-level Iranian government backers, including a former Islamic Republic official and another accused of lobbying on Tehran's behalf, were hosted at the Obama White House for more than 30 meetings..."…

A short thread covering today's important @FDD National Security Summit hosting Amb. @nikkihaley and Brian Hook, the U.S. Special Rep. on #Iran.
Amb. Haley:
#Iran would have become North Korea if the United States remained in the #IranDeal.
Amb. Haley:
From Gaza to Yemen & Lebanon, wherever we witness a human shield, #Iran's regime is behind it.

Let’s talk about @mck_beth’s recent @Independent piece discussing U.S. sanctions on #Iran.…
“’Sanctions hurt ordinary people on the streets and do not inflict pain at all whatsoever on the government,’ Meisam added.”
@mck_beth hides behind an individual in #Iran.

Let’s say she actually interviewed “Meisam” and such an individual actually made such a remark.

After seeing @tparsi RTing this from @AliVaez, I became suspicious & started doing some research.

(Parsi only tweets or RTs in favor of #Iran's regime.)
The report, written by "United Nations Special Rapporteur Idriss Jazairy," argues that U.S. sanctions against are unjust & criticizes President @realDonaldTrump's nixing of the #IranDeal.…
“International sanctions must have a lawful purpose, must be proportional, and must not harm the human rights of ordinary citizens, and none of these criteria is met in this case,” Jazairy stressed.

Let’s talk about a very controversial development regarding #Iran.

Less than a week after the “Iran Action Group” formation, U.S. authorities are taking action targeting #IranianRegimeSpies inside mainland America.…
“An indictment was returned today charging Ahmadreza Mohammadi-Doostdar, 38, a dual U.S.-Iranian citizen, and Majid Ghorbani, 59, an Iranian citizen and resident of California, with allegedly acting on behalf of the government of the Islamic Republic of Iran…”
“… by conducting covert surveillance of Israeli and Jewish facilities in the United States, and collecting identifying information about American citizens and U.S. nationals who are members of the group Mujahedin-e Khalq (MEK).”

Let's talk about #FakeNews @CNN & @npwcnn succumbing to the low of becoming the mouthpiece of #Iran's regime & @JZarif.…
CNN shows its hatred towards U.S. President Donald Trump by beginning its "interview" with Zarif with this line:

"The United States is addicted to applying sanctions on Iran..."

For me, this says it all about the actual intention of this entire piece.
CNN goes the distance to describe Zarif as the "key architect" of the flawed #IranDeal & using terms such "US-educated" & giving the "interview in fluent English..."

Watching #ZeroDays again ... #Stuxnet ... each time I know more about the story around this
It was Robert Gates that convinced the President in 2007 to place Information Warfare in the CIA (offensive cyber weapons), instead of the department of defense. Hence the CIA and NSA took control, along with US Cyber Command (controller by NSA).
NSA has no authority to launch a cyber attack, but it does have the ability

The US Cyber Command has authority to do a cyber attack (offense), but not the ability

USCC cleverly gives massive military cyber power to CIA and NSA

This is bad news for #Iran.
Amb. James Jeffrey knows first hand what #Iran's meddling is, having experienced it in #Iraq. He was under Obama's restrictions then.
Not now.
Read this to know more about his views on the mullahs' malign activities.…
More on Amb. Jeffrey:

“We must be much more aggressive countering Iran’s activities throughout the Middle East but particularly in Iraq and Syria where the independence of both countries [is] at stake,” Jeffrey stated.

The Assad regime in Syria benefited from Iran’s financial windfall as a result of the implementation of the JCPOA, which translated into a marked increase in Iranian defense spending and the funding of its foreign military campaigns.…
As result of the #IranDeal, $30 billion of Iranian assets were released, on top of $12.6 billion after the Geneva interim agreement, and the $400 million in cash the Obama administration paid to Iranian officials in exchange for the release of American hostages.
Iran’s military spending ballooned to $23B in 2017 representing 22% of government spending compared to 17% in 2014. Iran spends around $16B per year to maintain Assad & has extended a credit line of b/t $6.6B to $9B drawn on the state-run Export Development Bank of Iran.

Let's talk about #FakeNews @CNN's latest manipulative piece about #Iran.…
This is enough for me to realize the entire piece is full of lies.
If Iranian President @HassanRouhani is a "moderate" as @CNN claims, why did the world witness the enormous crackdown of the Dec/Jan uprising spread across over 140 cities throughout #Iran?

If he is a "moderate," how would CNN explain this?…

Let’s talk about Paul R. Pillar’s recent Atlantic Council piece on #Iran:
“Sixty-Five Years On: Iran Regime Change Advocates Haven’t Learned from Coup”…
His very first sentence is a lie:

“The Trump administration’s policy toward Iran aims for regime change.”

A simple Google search tells us so.…
Yet the fact that Pillar launches his article with such a sentence makes me, as a reader, very suspicious of his entire objective.

With my knowledge of #Iran’s regime, "regime change" is EXACTLY what they’re terrified of.

@ishaantharoor writes a @WashingtonPost piece on returning US sanctions on #Iran.
No explanation of reasoning behind sanctions to depict an innocent image of Iran’s regime & a negative image of the Trump administration in the reader’s mind.…
@ishaantharoor uses the phrase “renege on American commitments under the nuclear accord.”
Of course, no mentioning of #Iran’s long slate of #IranDeal violations.
Here’s just one example:
“Iran has ‘violated the deal on many occasions,’ according to Albright, who outlined efforts to avoid verification requirements and exceed the limits of heavy water, another nuclear byproduct.”…

Get to know @milanimohsen, another #Iran apologist.

Instead of voicing support for the rightful #IranProtests, such figures seek to further strengthen the ruthless regime in power that is known for executions & human rights violations.…
@milanimohsen first blows his cover in this line:

"...U.S. President Donald Trump’s decision in May to violate the terms of the nuclear deal with Iran and re-impose sanctions."

This is a trademark line of #Iran apologists, all yearning for the return #IranDeal's return.
@milanimohsen expresses his fear here.
Another trademark line of #Iran apologists.

On @AliVaez's article about possible talks between #Trump & #Iran, the fact that the mullahs refuse to talk with Trump is not a sign of their strength or upper-hand.
In fact, it shows their inability & inflexibility.
Why? #IranProtests are increasing.…
"Many Iranians had pinned their hopes for a better life on the deal, and it may well have improved relations between the two countries."

Even if true, the mullahs used the deal to further their bellicose, not to improve relations while the Iranian people suffered further.
@AliVaez claims Trump pulling out of the deal "has done little to disguise its goal of fomenting unrest among Iranians."

Look at the protests on July 31.
