Hey Mr. Curry, it’s been awhile since I emailed you last, so I hope all is well with you and yours.
Straight to the point, I’m a former drug addict and expert on identifying people on drugs, and I
believe you are mistaking people fucked up on coke for people fucked up on opiates (you and John
identifying drunks though I believe is on point).
My drugs of choice were mostly IV’ing heroin/painkillers and the occasional bag of payday coke, so
I’m well rounded. I think it’s safe to say Zelensky isn’t doing coke, and I don’t believe Pelosi or
the rando CNN anchor is either. It’s too 1980’s/1990’s to me (32 yr old millennial). Today it’s
much easier for the “powerful” to get a Percocet/adderall prescription from some known crooked
doctor; you know the milligrams and you lessen the chance of OD’ing on heroin/fentanyl that wasn’t
cut right. Also, in today’s world, knowing who to trust is hard and people will point the finger,
dime you out, or write a book in a second.
I think all of those people you call out are actually on opiates. There is this perception that you
do heroin and listen to Motown, and while that is a good time, a lot of people become, think late
80’s Red Hot Chili Peppers. Opiates made me feel warm, I could work out for hours without pain,
last longer in bed, be more attentive/caring, be more awake with less sleep, and it gave me CRAZY
amounts of energy. IT ALSO MAKES YOU ICHY AS HELL. My pinpoint eyes, voice raspy, and ITCHING THE
ABSOLUTE SHIT out of my NOSE were my tells (btw, by energy I mean I want to run a marathon and then
go flying elbow someone through a table at a party).
Zelensky to me sounds like an opiate user, but I’m not 100% cause it might be different in that
culture. However, the voice, the itching/fidgeting, and his eyes make me believe he is. I think
most people, especially in OUR country, that you call out as coke users are actually opiate users.
To me it makes perfect sense, and what person in this country over the age of 30 isn’t in a little
pain or couldn’t use a painkiller? Just take it into consideration. AnywayS, keep on keeping on.
Love you guys.

Message from Secretary Alejandro N. Mayorkas on Domestic Violent Extremism Internal Review Recommendations
March 11, 2022
Message from Secretary Alejandro N. Mayorkas on Domestic Violent Extremism Internal Review Recommendations
Today, our Department’s Domestic Violent Extremism Internal Review Working Group is releasing a report following its comprehensive review of how we can best prevent, detect, and respond to potential threats related to domestic violent extremism within DHS. This Working Group was led by our Chief Security Officer and comprised of senior officials from across the Department.
Every day, you play a critical role in protecting the safety and security of communities across our country. You do so with honor, integrity, tireless dedication, extraordinary talent, and often at great personal sacrifice. It is my and every leader’s responsibility to ensure that each and every one of you feels safe and secure at work, and that you have the tools and support necessary to execute our Department’s critical mission.
Domestic violent extremism poses one of the most significant terrorism-related threats to the United States. To ensure we can continue executing our critical mission with honor and integrity, we will not tolerate hateful acts or violent extremist activity within our Department. The Working Group’s internal review highlights key steps that our Department should take to better prevent, detect, and respond to potential violent extremist activity, including developing guidance as to what constitutes violent extremist activity and how to address it, improved workforce training for how to identify and report this activity, and the development of a centralized, DHS-wide investigative case management system and information sharing mechanism for investigating related allegations. These recommendations will better enable the Department to continue executing its critical mission and ensure all of you are safe and secure at work.
Our Department will implement the report’s recommendations with urgency to include establishing baseline policies and guidance, promoting employee awareness, and enhancing methods to identify and address violent extremist activity while continuing to protect privacy, civil rights, and civil liberties. We have already begun addressing many of the gaps identified in the report, including by updating related employee training modules. Throughout this process, Department and Component leadership will continue to work closely with you on this critical and time-sensitive effort.
Thank you for everything you do in service to our Department and our nation.

One more thing … biggest issue with the drone is that it traveled few minutes over Romania, 40 min over Hungary and 8 minutes over Croatia and noone noticed or didn’t bother to notify. Nato’s fault?… defences not integrated enough? …
And the latest news: they found parts of the bomb inside the drone
And still no official info who sent the drone.

Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action - Wikipedia
Sun, 13 Mar 2022 15:19
International agreement on the nuclear program of Iran
The Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA; Persian: برنامه جامع اقدام مشترÚ(C) , romanized: barnāmeye jāme'e eqdāme moshtarak (برجام , BARJAM)),[4][5] known commonly as the Iran nuclear deal or Iran deal, is an agreement on the Iranian nuclear program reached in Vienna on 14 July 2015, between Iran and the P5+1 (the five permanent members of the United Nations Security Council'--China, France, Russia, United Kingdom, United States'--plus Germany)[a] together with the European Union.
Formal negotiations toward JCPOA began with the adoption of the Joint Plan of Action, an interim agreement signed between Iran and the P5+1 countries in November 2013. Iran and the P5+1 countries engaged in negotiations for the next 20 months and, in April 2015, agreed on a framework for the final agreement. In July 2015, Iran and the P5+1 confirmed agreement on the plan, along with the "Roadmap Agreement" between Iran and the IAEA.[8]
After the Trump administration twice certified Iran's compliance in 2017, in May 2018 the United States withdrew from JCPOA as Trump pledged he would negotiate a better deal. Trump left office without fulfilling that pledge and analysts determined Iran had moved closer to developing a nuclear weapon since the American withdrawal.[9]
Timeline [ edit ] Under the JCPOA, Iran agreed to eliminate its stockpile of medium-enriched uranium, cut its stockpile of low-enriched uranium by 98%, and reduce by about two-thirds the number of its gas centrifuges for 13 years. For the next 15 years, Iran will only enrich uranium up to 3.67%. Iran also agreed not to build any new heavy-water facilities for the same period of time. Uranium-enrichment activities will be limited to a single facility using first-generation centrifuges for 10 years. Other facilities will be converted to avoid proliferation risks. To monitor and verify Iran's compliance with the agreement, the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) will have regular access to all Iranian nuclear facilities. The agreement provides that in return for verifiably abiding by its commitments, Iran will receive relief from the U.S., European Union, and United Nations Security Council nuclear-related sanctions.
On 12 October 2017, U.S. President Donald Trump announced that the United States would not make the certification provided for under U.S. domestic law, but stopped short of terminating the deal.[10]
In 2018, IAEA inspectors spent an aggregate of 3,000 calendar days in Iran, installing tamper-proof seals and collecting surveillance camera photos, measurement data, and documents for further analysis. IAEA Director Yukiya Amano stated (in March 2018) that the organization has verified that Iran is implementing its nuclear-related commitments.[11] On 30 April 2018 the United States and Israel said that Iran had not disclosed a past covert nuclear weapons program to the IAEA, as required by the 2015 deal.[12][13]
On 8 May 2018, Trump announced United States withdrawal from JCPOA.[14][15] Following the U.S. withdrawal, the EU enacted an updated blocking statute on 7 August 2018 to nullify U.S. sanctions on countries trading with Iran.[16] In November 2018 U.S. sanctions came back into effect intended to force Iran to dramatically alter its policies, including its support for militant groups in the region and its development of ballistic missiles.[17]
In May 2019, the IAEA certified that Iran was abiding by the deal's main terms, though questions were raised about how many advanced centrifuges Iran was allowed to have, as that was only loosely defined in the deal.[18]
On 1 July 2019, Iran announced that it had breached the limit set on its stockpile of low-enriched uranium,[19] which the IAEA confirmed.[20]
On 5 January 2020, in the aftermath of the Baghdad Airport Airstrike that targeted and killed Iranian general Qassem Soleimani, Iran declared that it would no longer abide by the deal's limitations but would continue to coordinate with the IAEA, leaving open the possibility of resuming compliance.[21] In December 2020, Iranian officials expressed further willingness to rejoin the deal, provided that U.S. officials make assurances regarding lifting sanctions and also rejoin the deal.[22][23]
Background [ edit ] Nuclear technology [ edit ] A nuclear weapon uses a fissile material to cause a nuclear chain reaction. The most commonly used materials have been uranium 235 (U-235) and plutonium 239 (Pu-239). Both uranium 233 (U-233) and reactor-grade plutonium have also been used.[24][25][26] The amount of uranium or plutonium needed depends on the sophistication of the design, with a simple design requiring approximately 15 kg of uranium or 6 kg of plutonium, and a sophisticated design requiring as little as 9 kg of uranium or 2 kg of plutonium.[27] Plutonium is almost nonexistent in nature, and natural uranium is about 99.3% uranium 238 (U-238) and 0.7% U-235. Therefore, to make a weapon, either uranium must be enriched, or plutonium must be produced. Uranium enrichment is also frequently necessary for nuclear power. For this reason, uranium enrichment is a dual-use technology, a technology that "can be used both for civilian and for military purposes".[28] Key strategies to prevent proliferation of nuclear arms include limiting the number of operating uranium enrichment plants and controlling the export of nuclear technology and fissile material.[26][28]
Iranian nuclear activity, conflict with IAEA and Western countries, 1970''2006 [ edit ] Iranian development of nuclear technology began in the 1970s, when the U.S. Atoms for Peace program began providing assistance to Iran, which was then led by the Shah.[29] Iran signed the Treaty on the Non-Proliferation of Nuclear Weapons (NPT) in 1968 as a non-nuclear weapons state and ratified the NPT in 1970.[29]
In 1979 the Iranian Revolution took place, and Iran's nuclear program, which had developed some baseline capacity, fell into disarray as "much of Iran's nuclear talent fled the country in the wake of the Revolution."[29] Furthermore, Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini initially opposed nuclear technology, and Iran engaged in a costly war with Iraq from 1980 to 1988.[29]
In the late 1980s Iran reinstated its nuclear program, with assistance from Pakistan (which entered into a bilateral agreement with Iran in 1992), China (which did the same in 1990), and Russia (which did the same in 1992 and 1995), and from the A.Q. Khan network.[29] Iran "began pursuing an indigenous nuclear fuel cycle capability by developing a uranium mining infrastructure and experimenting with uranium conversion and enrichment".[29]
In August 2002 the Paris-based National Council of Resistance of Iran, an Iranian dissident group, publicly revealed the existence of two undeclared nuclear facilities, the Arak heavy-water production facility and the Natanz enrichment facility.[29][30] In February 2003 Iranian President Mohammad Khatami acknowledged the existence of the facilities and asserted that Iran had undertaken "small-scale enrichment experiments" to produce low-enriched uranium for nuclear power plants.[29] In late February International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) inspectors visited Natanz.[30] In May 2003 Iran allowed IAEA inspectors to visit the Kalaye Electric Company but refused to allow them to take samples.[30]
In June 2003, an IAEA report concluded that Iran had failed to meet its obligations under the safeguards agreement,[30] and Iran, faced with the prospect of being referred to the UN Security Council, entered into diplomatic negotiations with France, Germany, and the United Kingdom (the EU 3).[29][30] The United States refused to be involved in these negotiations.[30] In October 2003 the Tehran Declaration was reached between Iran and the EU 3; under this declaration Iran agreed to cooperate fully with the IAEA, sign the Additional Protocol, and temporarily suspend all uranium enrichment.[29][30] In September and October 2003 the IAEA conducted several facility inspections.[29] This was followed by the Paris Agreement in November 2004, in which Iran agreed to temporarily suspend enrichment and conversion activities, "including the manufacture, installation, testing, and operation of centrifuges, and committed to working with the EU-3 to find a mutually beneficial long-term diplomatic solution".[29]
In August 2005, the newly elected president of Iran, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, promptly accused Iranian negotiators who had negotiated the Paris Accords of treason.[30][31] Over the next two months, the EU 3 agreement fell apart as talks over the EU 3's proposed Long Term Agreement broke down; the Iranian government "felt that the proposal was heavy on demands, light on incentives, did not incorporate Iran's proposals, and violated the Paris Agreement".[29][30] Iran notified the IAEA that it would resume uranium conversion at Esfahan.[29][30]
In February 2006 Iran ended its voluntary implementation of the Additional Protocol and resumed enrichment at Natanz, prompting the IAEA Board of Governors to refer Iran to the UN Security Council.[29][30] After the vote, Iran announced it would resume enrichment of uranium.[30] In April 2006 Ahmadinejad announced that Iran had nuclear technology but said that it was purely for power generation, not weapons.[30] In June 2006 the EU 3 joined China, Russia, and the United States, to form the P5+1.[30] The following month, July 2006, the UN Security Council passed its first resolution (nr. 1696), demanding Iran stop uranium enrichment and processing, because of "serious concern" about "a number of outstanding issues and concerns on Iran's nuclear programme, including topics which could have a military nuclear dimension".[32][30] Another UN Security Council resolution followed in December 2006 (nr. 1737); others followed later.[33] The legal authority for the IAEA Board of Governors referral and the Security Council resolutions derived from the IAEA Statute and the United Nations Charter.[33] The resolutions demanded that Iran cease enrichment activities, and the second resolution (Dec. 2006) also imposed sanctions on Iran, including bans on the transfer of nuclear and missile technology to the country and freezes on the assets of certain Iranian individuals and entities, in order to pressure the country.[29][30]
In July 2006 Iran opened the Arak heavy water production plant, which led to one of the Security Council resolutions.[29]
Prolonged conflict of Iran with U.S. and European countries, 2007''2015 [ edit ] Four more UN Security Council resolutions concerning Iran's nuclear program followed: 1747 (March 2007), 1803 (March 2008), 1835 (September 2008), and 1929 (June 2010).[33] In Resolution 1803 and elsewhere the Security Council acknowledged Iran's rights under Article IV of the NPT, which provides for "the inalienable right ... to develop research, production and use of nuclear energy for peaceful purposes".[33][b]
In a February 2007 interview with the Financial Times, IAEA director-general Mohamed ElBaradei said that military action against Iran "would be catastrophic, counterproductive" and called for negotiations between the international community and Iran over the Iranian nuclear program.[39] ElBaradei specifically proposed a "double, simultaneous suspension, a time out" as "a confidence-building measure", under which the international sanctions would be suspended and Iran would suspend enrichment.[39] ElBaradei also said, "if I look at it from a weapons perspective there are much more important issues to me than the suspension of [enrichment]," naming his top priorities as preventing Iran from "go[ing] to industrial capacity until the issues are settled"; building confidence, with "full inspection" involving Iranian adoption of the Additional Protocol; and "at all costs" preventing Iran from "moving out of the [treaty-based non-proliferation] system".[39]
A November 2007 U.S. National Intelligence Estimate assessed that Iran "halted its nuclear weapons program" in 2003; that estimate and subsequent U.S. Intelligence Community statements also assessed that the Iranian government at the time was "keeping open the 'option' to develop nuclear weapons" in the future.[40]
In September 2009 U.S. President Barack Obama revealed the existence of an underground enrichment facility in Fordow, near Qom, saying, "Iran's decision to build yet another nuclear facility without notifying the IAEA represents a direct challenge to the basic compact at the center of the non-proliferation regime."[41] Israel threatened to take military action against Iran.[30]
U.S. Secretary of State
John Kerry shakes hands with Iranian Foreign Minister
Javad Zarif after the P5+1 and Iran concluded negotiations about Iran's nuclear capabilities on November 24, 2013
In March 2013 the United States began a series of secret bilateral talks with Iranian officials in Oman, led by William Joseph Burns and Jake Sullivan on the American side and Ali Asghar Khaji on the Iranian side.[30][42] In June 2013 Hassan Rouhani was elected president of Iran.[30][43] Rouhani has been described as "more moderate, pragmatic and willing to negotiate than Ahmadinejad". But in a 2006 nuclear negotiation with European powers, Rouhani said that Iran had used the negotiations to dupe the Europeans, saying that during the negotiations, Iran managed to master the conversion of uranium yellowcake at Isfahan. The conversion of yellowcake is an important step in the nuclear fuel process.[44] In August 2013, three days after his inauguration, Rouhani called for a resumption of serious negotiations with the P5+1 on the Iranian nuclear program.[45] In September 2013 Obama and Rouhani spoke by telephone, the first high-level contact between U.S. and Iranian leaders since 1979, and U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry met with Iranian foreign minister Mohammad Javad Zarif, signaling that the two countries were open to cooperation.[30][45] Former officials alleged that, in order to advance the deal, the Obama administration shielded Hezbollah from the Drug Enforcement Administration's Project Cassandra investigation regarding drug smuggling and from the Central Intelligence Agency.[46][47] As a result of the Politico report, Attorney General Jeff Sessions ordered an investigation to determine the veracity of the allegations.[48]
On 24 November 2013, after several rounds of negotiations, the Joint Plan of Action, an interim agreement on the Iranian nuclear program, was signed between Iran and the P5+1 countries in Geneva, Switzerland. It consisted of a short-term freeze of portions of Iran's nuclear program in exchange for decreased economic sanctions on Iran, as the countries work towards a long-term agreement.[49] The IAEA began "more intrusive and frequent inspections" under this interim agreement.[45] The agreement was formally activated on 20 January 2014.[50] That day, the IAEA issued a report stating that Iran was adhering to the terms of the interim agreement, including stopping enrichment of uranium to 20%, beginning the dilution process (to reduce half of the stockpile of 20% enriched uranium to 3.5%), and halting work on the Arak heavy-water reactor.[45][50]
A major focus on the negotiations was limitations on Iran's key nuclear facilities: the Arak IR-40 heavy water reactor and production plant (which was under construction, but never became operational, as Iran agreed as part of the November 2013 Joint Plan of Action (interim agreement) not to commission or fuel the reactor); the Bushehr Nuclear Power Plant; the Gachin uranium mine; the Fordow Fuel Enrichment Plant; the Isfahan uranium-conversion plant; the Natanz uranium enrichment plant; and the Parchin military research and development complex.[51]
A July 2015 Congressional Research Service report said, "statements from the U.S. intelligence community indicate that Iran has the technological and industrial capacity to produce nuclear weapons at some point, but the U.S. government assesses that Tehran has not mastered all of the necessary technologies for building a nuclear weapon."[40]
Negotiations (2013''2015) [ edit ] Foreign Ministers from the P5+1 nations, the European Union, and Iran in
Vienna, Austria, on November 24, 2014
The agreement between the P5+1+EU and Iran on the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) is the culmination of 20 months of "arduous" negotiations.[52][53]
The agreement followed the Joint Plan of Action (JPA), an interim agreement between the P5+1 powers and Iran that was agreed to on 24 November 2013 at Geneva. The Geneva agreement was an interim deal,[54] in which Iran agreed to roll back parts of its nuclear program in exchange for relief from some sanctions. This went into effect on 20 January 2014.[55] The parties agreed to extend their talks with a first extension deadline on 24 November 2014[56] and a second extension deadline set to 1 July 2015.[57]
An Iran nuclear deal framework was reached on 2 April 2015. Under this framework Iran agreed tentatively to accept restrictions on its nuclear program, all of which would last for at least a decade and some longer, and to submit to an increased intensity of international inspections under a framework deal. These details were to be negotiated by the end of June 2015. The negotiations toward a Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action were extended several times until the final agreement, the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action, was finally reached on 14 July 2015.[58][59] The JCPOA is based on the framework agreement from three months earlier.
Subsequently the negotiations between Iran and the P5+1 continued. In April 2015 a framework deal was reached at Lausanne. Intense marathon negotiations then continued, with the last session in Vienna at the Palais Coburg lasting for seventeen days.[60] At several points, negotiations appeared to be at risk of breaking down, but negotiators managed to come to agreement.[60] As the negotiators neared a deal, U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry directly asked Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif to confirm that he was "authorized to actually make a deal, not just by the [Iranian] president, but by the supreme leader?"[60] Zarif gave assurances that he was.[60]
Ultimately, on 14 July 2015 all parties agreed to a landmark comprehensive nuclear agreement.[61] At the time of the announcement, shortly before 11:00 GMT, the agreement was released to the public.[62]
The final agreement's complexity shows the impact of a public letter written by a bipartisan group of 19 U.S. diplomats, experts, and others in June 2015, written when negotiations were still ongoing.[63][64] The letter outlined concerns about the several provisions in the then-unfinished agreement and called for a number of improvements to strengthen the prospective agreement and win their support for it.[63] After the final agreement was reached, one of the early negotiators, Robert J. Einhorn, a former U.S. Department of State official now at the Brookings Institution, said of the agreement: "Analysts will be pleasantly surprised. The more things are agreed to, the less opportunity there is for implementation difficulties later on."[63]
The final agreement is based upon (and buttresses) "the rules-based nonproliferation regime created by the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT) and including especially the IAEA safeguards system".[65]
Participants [ edit ] According to the U.S. State Department (Assistant Secretary for Legislative Affairs Julia Frifield), "The JCPOA is not a treaty or an executive agreement, and is not a signed document. The JCPOA reflects political commitments between Iran, the P5+1, and the EU."[66]
JCPOA timetable [ edit ] The JCPOA is part of UN Security Council Resolution 2231. The members of the UN Security Council voted on it on 20 July 2015, and adopted it on 18 October (Adoption Day). It came into effect on 16 January 2016 (Implementation Day). The JCPOA stays in effect for eight years from Adoption Day or upon receipt by the Security Council of an IAEA report stating that the IAEA has reached the Broader Conclusion that all nuclear material in Iran remains in peaceful activities (Transition Day), and terminates ten years from Adoption Day (Termination Day).
JCPOA provisions [ edit ] The Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) runs to 109 pages, including five annexes.[53] The major provisions are:[53][68][69]

Iran's stockpile of low-enriched uranium was reduced by 97%, from 10,000 kg to 300 kg.[72] This reduction will be maintained for 15 years.[53][73][74][75] For the same 15-year period, Iran will be limited to enriching uranium to 3.67%, a percentage sufficient for civilian nuclear power and research, but not for building a nuclear weapon.[73][74][76] However, the number of centrifuges is sufficient for a nuclear weapon, but not for nuclear power.[77] This is a "major decline" in Iran's previous nuclear activity; before watering down its stockpile pursuant to the Joint Plan of Action interim agreement, Iran had enriched uranium to near 20% (medium-enriched uranium).[73][74][75] These enriched uranium in excess of 300 kg of up to 3.67% will be down blended to natural uranium level or be sold in return for natural uranium, and the uranium enriched to between 5% and 20% will be fabricated into fuel plates for the Tehran Research Reactor or sold or diluted to an enrichment level of 3.67%. P5+1 will facilitate the implementation of the commercial contracts. After fifteen years, all physical limits on enrichment will be removed, including limits on the type and number of centrifuges, Iran's stockpile of enriched uranium, and where Iran may have enrichment facilities. According to Belfer, at this point Iran could "expand its nuclear program to create more practical overt and covert nuclear weapons options".[71][78]For ten years, Iran will place over two-thirds of its centrifuges in storage, from its current stockpile of 19,000 centrifuges (of which 10,000 were operational) to no more than 6,104 operational centrifuges, with only 5,060 allowed to enrich uranium,[53][73] with the enrichment capacity being limited to the Natanz plant. The centrifuges there must be IR-1 centrifuges, the first-generation centrifuge type which is Iran's oldest and least efficient; Iran will give up its advanced IR-2M centrifuges in this period.[51][74][75] The non-operating centrifuges will be stored in Natanz and monitored by IAEA, but may be used to replace failed centrifuges.[79][80] Iran will not build any new uranium-enrichment facilities for fifteen years.[73]Iran may continue research and development work on enrichment, but that work will take place only at the Natanz facility and include certain limitations for the first eight years.[51] This is intended to keep the country to a one-year breakout time.[73]With cooperation from the "Working Group" (the P5+1 and possibly other countries), Iran is to modernise and rebuild the Arak heavy water research reactor based on an agreed design to support its peaceful nuclear research and production needs and purposes, but in such a way to minimise the production of plutonium and not to produce weapons-grade plutonium. The thermal power of the redesigned reactor will not exceed 20 MW. The P5+1 parties will support and facilitate the timely and safe construction of the Arak complex.[81] All spent fuel will be sent out of the country.[51] All excess heavy water which is beyond Iran's needs for the redesigned reactor will be made available for export to the international market based on international prices. In exchange, Iran received 130 tonnes of uranium in 2015 and in late 2016 was approved to receive 130 tonnes in 2017.[82] For 15 years Iran will not engage in, or research, spent fuel reprocessing.[83] Iran will also not build any additional heavy-water reactors or accumulate heavy water for 15 years.[51]Iran's Fordow facility will stop enriching uranium and researching uranium enrichment for at least fifteen years; the facility will be converted into a nuclear physics and technology center. For 15 years Fordow will maintain no more than 1,044 IR-1 centrifuges in six cascades in one wing of Fordow. "Two of those six cascades will spin without uranium and will be transitioned, including through appropriate infrastructure modification," for stable radioisotope production for medical, agricultural, industrial, and scientific use. "The other four cascades with all associated infrastructure will remain idle." Iran will not be permitted to have any fissile material in Fordow.[51][73][75]Iran is implementing an Additional Protocol that will continue in perpetuity for as long as Iran remains a party to the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT). The signing of the Additional Protocol represents a continuation of the monitoring and verification provisions "long after the comprehensive agreement between the P5+1 and Iran is implemented".[84]A comprehensive inspections regime will be implemented in order to monitor and confirm that Iran is complying with its obligations and is not diverting any fissile material.[73][74][c]The IAEA will have multilayered[95] oversight "over Iran's entire nuclear supply chain, from uranium mills to its procurement of nuclear-related technologies".[96] For declared nuclear sites such as Fordow and Natanz, the IAEA will have "round-the-clock access" to nuclear facilities and will be entitled to maintain continuous monitoring (including via surveillance equipment) at such sites.[96][97] The agreement authorizes the IAEA to make use of sophisticated monitoring technology, such as fiber-optic seals on equipment that can electronically send information to the IAEA; infrared satellite imagery to detect covert sites, "environmental sensors that can detect minute signs of nuclear particles"; tamper-resistant, radiation-resistant cameras.[63][98] Other tools include computerized accounting programs to gather information and detect anomalies, and big data sets on Iranian imports, to monitor dual-use items.[95]The number of IAEA inspectors assigned to Iran will triple, from 50 to 150 inspectors.[63]If IAEA inspectors have concerns that Iran is developing nuclear capabilities at any non-declared sites, they may request access "to verify the absence of undeclared nuclear materials and activities or activities inconsistent with" the agreement, informing Iran of the basis for their concerns.[97] The inspectors would only come from countries with which Iran has diplomatic relations.[99] Iran may admit the inspectors to such site or propose alternatives to inspection that might satisfy the IAEA's concerns.[97] If such an agreement cannot be reached, a process running to a maximum of 24 days is triggered.[97] Under this process, Iran and the IAEA have 14 days to resolve disagreements among themselves.[97] If they fail to, the Joint Commission (including all eight parties) would have one week in which to consider the intelligence which initiated the IAEA request. A majority of the Commission (at least five of the eight members) could then inform Iran of the action that it would be required to take within three more days.[100][101] The majority rule provision "means the United States and its European allies'--Britain, France, Germany and the EU'--could insist on access or any other steps and that Iran, Russia or China could not veto them".[100][102] If Iran did not comply with the decision within three days, sanctions would be automatically reimposed under the snapback provision (see below).[101]As a result of the above, the "breakout time"'--the time in which it would be possible for Iran to make enough material for a single nuclear weapon'--will increase from two to three months to one year, according to U.S. officials and U.S. intelligence.[53][73][103][d] An August 2015 report published by a group of experts at Harvard University's Belfer Center for Science and International Affairs concurs in these estimates, writing that under the JCPOA, "over the next decade would be extended to roughly a year, from the current estimated breakout time of 2 to 3 months".[71] The Center for Arms Control and Non-Proliferation also accepts these estimates.[105][106] By contrast, Alan J. Kuperman, coordinator of the Nuclear Proliferation Prevention Project at the University of Texas at Austin, disputed the one-year assessment, arguing that under the agreement, Iran's breakout time "would be only about three months, not much longer than it is today".[107]
The longer breakout time would be in place for at least ten years; after that point, the breakout time would gradually decrease.[53][103] By the 15th year, U.S. officials say the breakout time would return to the pre-JCPOA status quo of a few months.[53][103] The Belfer Center report states: "Some contributors to this report believe that breakout time by year 15 could be comparable to what it is today'--a few months'--while others believe it could be reduced to a few weeks."[71]
Exemptions [ edit ] Reuters reported that exemptions were granted to Iran prior to 16 January 2016. The reported purpose of the exemptions was so that sanctions relief and other benefits could start by that date, instead of Iran being in violation. The exemptions included: (a) Iran able to exceed the 300 kg of 3.5% LEU limit in the agreement; (b) Iran able to exceed the zero kg of 20% LEU limit in the agreement; (c) Iran to keep operating 19 "hot cells" that exceed the size limit in the agreement; (d) Iran to maintain control of 50 tonnes of heavy water that exceed the 130 tonne limit in the agreement by storing the excess at an Iran-controlled facility in Oman.[108] In December 2016, the IAEA published decisions of the Joint Commission that spell out these clarifications of the JCPOA.[109]
Sanctions [ edit ] Following the issuance of a IAEA report verifying implementation by Iran of the nuclear-related measures, the UN sanctions against Iran and some EU sanctions will terminate and some will be suspended. Once sanctions are lifted, Iran will recover approximately $100 billion of its assets (U.S. Treasury Department estimate) frozen in overseas banks.[110]Eight years into the agreement, EU sanctions against a number of Iranian companies, individuals and institutions (such as the Revolutionary Guards) will be lifted.[111]The United States will "cease" application of its nuclear-related secondary sanctions[112] by presidential action or executive waiver.[113] Secondary sanctions are those that sanction other countries for doing business with Iran. Primary U.S. sanctions, which prohibit U.S. firms from conducting commercial transactions with few exceptions, are not altered by the JCPOA.[114]This step is not tied to any specific date, but is expected to occur "roughly in the first half of 2016".[112][115][116]Sanctions relating to ballistic missile technologies would remain for eight years; similar sanctions on conventional weapon sales to Iran would remain for five years.[53][117]However, all U.S. sanctions against Iran related to alleged human rights abuses, missiles, and support for terrorism are not affected by the agreement and will remain in place.[75][118] U.S. sanctions are viewed as more stringent, since many have extraterritorial effect (i.e., they apply worldwide). EU sanctions, by contrast, apply only in Europe.[111]No new UN or EU nuclear-related sanctions or restrictive measures will be imposed.[119]If Iran violates the agreement, any of the P5+1 can invoke a "snap back" provision, under which the sanctions "snap back" into place (i.e., are reimplemented).[73][74][119]Specifically, the JCPOA establishes the following dispute resolution process: if a party to the JCPOA has reason to believe that another party is not upholding its commitments under the agreement, then the complaining party may refer its complaint to the Joint Commission, a body created under the JCPOA to monitor implementation.[75][120] If a complaint made by a non-Iran party is not resolved to the satisfaction of the complaining party within 35 days of referral, then that party may treat the unresolved issue as grounds to cease performing its commitments under the JCPOA, notify the United Nations Security Council that it believes the issue constitutes significant nonperformance, or both.[120] The Security Council would then have 30 days to adopt a resolution to continue the lifting of sanctions. If such a resolution is not adopted within those 30 days, then the sanctions of all the pre-JCPOA nuclear-related UN Security Council resolutions would automatically be reimposed. Iran has stated that in such a case, it would cease performing its nuclear obligations under the deal.[62][120] The effect of this rule is that any permanent member of the Security Council (United States, United Kingdom, China, Russia or France) can veto any ongoing sanctions relief, but no member can veto the reimposition of sanctions.Snapback sanctions "would not apply with retroactive effect to contracts signed between any party and Iran or Iranian individuals and entities prior to the date of application, provided that the activities contemplated under and execution of such contracts are consistent with this JCPOA and the previous and current UN Security Council resolutions".[79]Ankit Panda of The Diplomat has said that this will make impossible any scenario where Iran is noncompliant with the JCPOA yet escapes reimposition of sanctions.[120] But Mark Dubowitz of the Foundation for Defense of Democracies (which opposes the agreement) has argued that because the JCPOA provides that Iran could treat reinstatement of sanctions (in part or entirely) as grounds for leaving the agreement, the U.S. would be reluctant to impose a "snapback" for smaller violations: "The only thing you'll take to the Security Council are massive Iranian violations, because you're certainly not going to risk the Iranians walking away from the deal and engaging in nuclear escalation over smaller violations."[121]
15-year term [ edit ] After the 15 years, many provisions of the JCPOA will expire, including most restrictions on Iran's enrichment program. At that time, in 2030, most people involved in the 1979 revolution will no longer be politically active. Some critics of the treaty consider it plausible that Iran could then make a nuclear bomb. But Iran should also have ratified the Additional Protocol and will thus be subject to enhanced inspection and oversight by the IAEA.[122]
[ edit ] The JCPOA received a mixed international reaction. Many countries expressed hope that it could achieve the denuclearization of Iran,[124][125][126] while some of Iran's neighbouring countries, including Israel,[127][128] and some U.S. lawmakers expressed distrust of the agreement, seeing it as seriously defective.[129][130][131] Zarif's "Never threaten an Iranian!" remark, during the heated nuclear negotiations, gained attention from numerous global news agencies, with mixed reviews.[132][133][134][135]
Records [ edit ] According to several commentators, JCPOA is the first of its kind in the annals of non-proliferation and is in many aspects unique.[136][137][138][139][140] The 159-page JCPOA document and its five appendices, is the most spacious text of a multinational treaty since World War II, according to BBC Persian.[141]
This is the first time that the United Nations Security Council has recognized the nuclear enrichment program of a developing country[141][142] and backs an agreement signed by several countries within the framework of a resolution (United Nations Security Council Resolution 2231).[141][143] For the first time in the history of the United Nations, a country'--Iran'--was able to abolish 6 UN resolutions against it'--1696, 1737, 1747, 1803, 1835, 1929'--without even one day of implementing them.[141] Sanctions against Iran were also lifted for the first time.[141]
Throughout the history of international law, this is the first and only time that a country subject to Chapter VII of the United Nations Charter has managed to end its case and stop being subject to this chapter through diplomacy.[141][144][145] All other cases have ended through either regime change, war or full implementation of the Security Council's decisions by the country.[146]
Gary Sick states that during the history of the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT), no country other than Iran has ever voluntarily agreed to put such extraordinary restrictions on its nuclear activities.[147]
During the final negotiations, U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry stayed in Vienna for 17 days, making him the top American official devoting time to a single international negotiation in more than four decades.[148] Mohammad Javad Zarif broke the record of an Iranian Foreign Minister being far from home with 18-days stay in Vienna,[141] and set the record of 106 days of negotiations in 687 days, a number higher than any other chief nuclear negotiator in 12 years.[149] The negotiations became the longest continuous negotiations with the presence of all foreign ministers of the permanent members of the United Nations Security Council.[141]
The negotiations included 'rare events' in Iran''United States relations not only since the 1979 Iranian Revolution, but also in the history of the bilateral relations. The U.S. Secretary of State and Iranian Foreign Minister met on 18 different dates'--sometimes multiple occasions a day'--and in 11 different cities, unprecedented since the beginning of the relations.[150] On 27 April 2015 Kerry visited the official residence of the Permanent Representative of Iran to the United Nations to meet his counterpart. The encounter was the first of its kind since the Iran hostage crisis.[150][151] On the sidelines of the 70th session of the United Nations General Assembly, President Obama shook hands with Zarif, marking the first such event in history. The event was also noted in form of diplomatic ranks, as a head of state shook hands with a minister.[152] Obama is reported to have said in the meeting: "Too much effort has been put into the JCPOA and we all should be diligent to implement it."[153]
Process [ edit ] Incorporation into international law by the United Nations Security Council [ edit ] As provided for in the JCPOA, the agreement was formally endorsed by the UN Security Council.[154][155][156][157] There is disagreement about whether the deal is legally binding on the United States.[e]
On 15 July 2015, the American ambassador to the UN, Samantha Power, circulated a 14-page draft to Council members.[155] On 20 July 2015 the Security Council unanimously approved the resolution'--United Nations Security Council resolution 2231[164]'--in a 15''0 vote.[157] The resolution delayed its official implementation for 90 days to allow for U.S. Congressional consideration under the Iran Nuclear Agreement Review Act of 2015.[156][157] The resolution laid out the steps for terminating sanctions imposed by seven past Security Council resolutions, but retained an arms embargo and ballistic missile technology ban.[154][157] The resolution did not affect sanctions imposed separately by the United States and the European Union.[157] It also codified the "snapback" mechanism of the agreement, under which all Security Council sanctions will be automatically reimposed if Iran breaches the deal.[154]
Speaking immediately after the vote, Power told the Security Council that sanctions relief would start only when Iran "verifiably" met its obligations. Power also called upon Iran "to immediately release all unjustly detained Americans", specifically naming Amir Hekmati, Saeed Abedini, and Jason Rezaian, who were detained at the time, and Robert A. Levinson, who had been missing in the country.[157][165] Hekmati, Abedini, and Rezaian were subsequently released in a January 2016 prisoner exchange, which Secretary of State Kerry said had been accelerated by the nuclear agreement.[166]
Approval by European Union [ edit ] On the same day that the Security Council approved a resolution, the European Union formally approved the JCPOA via a vote of the EU Foreign Affairs Council (the group of EU foreign ministers) meeting in Brussels. This sets into motion the lifting of certain EU sanctions, including those prohibiting the purchase of Iranian oil.[157][167] The EU continues its sanctions relating to human rights and its sanctions prohibiting the export of ballistic missile technology.[157] The approval by the EU was seen as a signal to the U.S. Congress.[167]
Review period in the United States Congress [ edit ] Secretary of State John Kerry, Secretary of Energy Ernest Moniz, and Secretary of the Treasury Jack Lew defending the JCPOA at a hearing of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee on 23 July 2015
Under U.S. law, the JCPOA is a non-binding political commitment.[168][169] According to the U.S. State Department, it specifically is not an executive agreement nor a treaty (as defined in U.S. law).[citation needed ] There are widespread incorrect reports that it is an executive agreement.[170][171] In contrast to treaties, which require two-thirds of the Senate to consent to ratification, political commitments require no congressional approval and are not legally binding as a matter of domestic law (although in some cases they may be "treaties" and be binding on the U.S. as a matter of international law).[170][f]
On 22 May 2015, President Obama signed the Iran Nuclear Agreement Review Act of 2015 into law;[g] this legislation passed the Senate by a 98''1 vote and the House by a 400''25 vote, and was approved by Obama on 22 May 2015.[179] Under the Act, once a nuclear agreement was negotiated with Iran, Congress had 60 days in which to pass a resolution of approval, a resolution of disapproval, or do nothing.[180] The Act also included additional time beyond the 60 days for the president to veto a resolution and for Congress to vote on whether to override or sustain the veto.[181] Congress could defeat the deal only if it mustered the two-thirds of both houses needed to override an expected veto by Obama of any resolution of disapproval.[180][182]
On 19 July 2015, the State Department officially transmitted to Congress the JCPOA, its annexes, and related materials.[183] These documents included the Unclassified Verification Assessment Report on the JCPOA and the Intelligence Community's Classified Annex to the Verification Assessment Report.[183] The 60-day review period began the next day, 20 July,[183][184][180] and ended on 17 September.[185] Senator Ted Cruz introduced a resolution seeking a delay in the review period, arguing that the 60-day congressional review under the Act should not begin until the Senate obtained a copy of all bilateral Iran''IAEA documents. This resolution did not pass.[186][187] Ultimately a resolution of disapproval was brought to the Senate floor but failed. A resolution of approval was brought to the House floor, but it too failed. As a result, the agreement went into effect following the congressional review period.[188]
Obama administration [ edit ] The JCPOA was the culmination of many years of international effort as well as a high-priority foreign policy goal of the Obama administration.[189][190][191]
In comments made in the East Room of the White House on 15 July 2015, Obama urged Congress to support the agreement, saying "If we don't choose wisely, I believe future generations will judge us harshly, for letting this moment slip away."[192] He said the inspections regime in the agreement was among the most vigorous ever negotiated and criticized opponents of the deal for failing to offer a viable alternative to it.[192] Obama said, "If 99 percent of the world's community and the majority of nuclear experts look at this thing and they say 'this will prevent Iran from getting a nuclear bomb,' and you are arguing either that it does not ... then you should have some alternative to present. And I haven't heard that."[193][194] The same day, he made a case for the deal on the agreement in an interview with New York Times columnist Thomas Friedman.[195] Obama stated:
With respect to Iran, it is a great civilization, but it also has an authoritarian theocracy in charge that is anti-American, anti-Israeli, anti-Semitic, sponsors terrorism, and there are a whole host of real profound differences that we [have with] them ... [T]heir argument was, 'We're entitled to have a peaceful nuclear program.' ... You know, I have a lot of differences with Ronald Reagan, but where I completely admire him was his recognition that [we] were able to verify an agreement that [was negotiated] with the evil empire [the Soviet Union] that was hellbent on our destruction and was a far greater existential threat to us than Iran will ever be ... I had a lot of disagreements with Richard Nixon, but he understood there was the prospect, the possibility, that China could take a different path. You test these things, and as long as we are preserving our security capacity'--as long as we are not giving away our ability to respond forcefully, militarily, where necessary to protect our friends and our allies'--that is a risk we have to take. It is a practical, common-sense position. It's not na¯ve; it's a recognition that if we can in fact resolve some of these differences, without resort to force, that will be a lot better for us and the people of that region.[195]
Also on 15 July 2015, Vice President Joe Biden met with Senate Democrats on the Foreign Relations Committee on Capitol Hill, where he made a presentation on the agreement.[196]
On 18 July Obama devoted his weekly radio address to the agreement, saying, "this deal will make America and the world safer and more secure" and rebutting "a lot of overheated and often dishonest arguments about it";[197] Obama said, "as commander-in-chief, I make no apology for keeping this country safe and secure through the hard work of diplomacy over the easy rush to war."[197] On 23 July Obama met in the White House Cabinet Room with about a dozen undecided House Democrats to speak about the agreement and seek their support.[198]
The debate over the agreement was marked by acrimony between the White House and Republicans inside and outside of Congress. Cruz said that under the agreement "the Obama administration will become the leading financier of terrorism against America in the world."[199] Former Governor Mike Huckabee of Arkansas, a candidate for the Republican presidential nomination, called the president "naive" and repeatedly invoked the Holocaust, saying that the president's policy would "take the Israelis and march them to the door of the oven". This comparison was denounced by the Anti-Defamation League, the National Jewish Democratic Council, and various Israeli government officials.[201][202] At a 27 July 2015 news conference Obama specifically criticized Huckabee, Cruz, and Cotton, saying that such remarks were "just part of a general pattern we've seen that would be considered ridiculous if it weren't so sad", especially from "leaders in the Republican Party".[199] Obama said, "fling[ing] out ad hominem attacks like that ... doesn't help inform the American people". "This is a deal that has been endorsed by people like Brent Scowcroft and Sam Nunn ... historic Democratic and Republican leaders on arms control and on keeping America safe. And so when you get rhetoric like this, maybe it gets attention and maybe this is just an effort to push Mr. Trump out of the headlines, but it's not the kind of leadership that is needed for America right now", he added.
On 5 August Obama gave a speech before an audience of around 200 at American University, marking a new phase in the administration's campaign for the agreement.[204][205] He said, "Let's not mince words: The choice we face is ultimately between diplomacy and some form of war'--maybe not tomorrow, maybe not three months from now, but soon. How can we in good conscience justify war before we've tested a diplomatic agreement that achieves our objectives?"[204] In his speech, Obama also invoked a speech made by John F. Kennedy at American University in 1963 in favor of the Partial Nuclear Test Ban Treaty.[204] Obama also said the opponents of the agreement were the same people who created the "drumbeat of war" that led to the Iraq War and criticized "knee-jerk partisanship that has become all too familiar, rhetoric that renders every decision made to be a disaster, a surrender".[204]
New York Senator Chuck Schumer, a senior Democrat, made a different assessment of prospects for war by distinguishing between nuclear and non-nuclear aspects of the agreement. In each case he asked whether we are better off with the agreement or without it, and his conclusion was: "when it comes to the nuclear aspects of the agreement within ten years, we might be slightly better off with it. However, when it comes to the nuclear aspects after ten years and the non-nuclear aspects, we would be better off without it." Then Schumer assessed the Iranian government, saying, "Who's to say this dictatorship will not prevail for another ten, twenty, or thirty years? To me, the very real risk that Iran will not moderate and will, instead, use the agreement to pursue its nefarious goals is too great." Finally, Schumer concluded: "I will vote to disapprove the agreement, not because I believe war is a viable or desirable option, nor to challenge the path of diplomacy. It is because I believe Iran will not change, and under this agreement it will be able to achieve its dual goals of eliminating sanctions while ultimately retaining its nuclear and non-nuclear power."[206]
In the same 5 August speech, Obama said, "Just because Iranian hard-liners chant 'Death to America' does not mean that that's what all Iranians believe. In fact, it's those hard-liners who are most comfortable with the status quo. It's those hard-liners chanting 'Death to America' who have been most opposed to the deal. They're making common cause with the Republican caucus."[205] Congressional Republican leaders criticized this statement. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell called it "crass political rhetoric" that was a strategy to "Demonize your opponents, gin up the base, get the Democrats all angry, and rally around the president." McConnell said, "This is an enormous national security debate that the president will leave behind, under the Constitution, a year and a half from now, and the rest of us will be dealing with the consequences of it. So I wish he would tone down the rhetoric and let's talk about the facts" and promised that Republicans would discuss the agreement respectfully in September.[208][209] Republican Senator Bob Corker, the chairman of Foreign Relations Committee, asserted that the president was "trying to shut down debate by saying that those who have legitimate questions, legitimate questions'--are somehow unpatriotic, are somehow compared to hardliners in Iran".[210] Obama subsequently stood by his statement, with White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest calling it a "statement of fact"[208] and Obama saying in an interview, "Remember, what I said was that it's the hard-liners in Iran who are most opposed to this deal. And I said, in that sense, they're making common cause with those who are opposed to this deal here. I didn't say that they were equivalent." In the same interview Obama said, "A sizable proportion of the Republicans were opposed before the ink was even dry on the deal."
In comments made at the Aspen Security Forum in Aspen, Colorado in July 2015, Director of National Intelligence James Clapper said the JCPOA would improve the U.S.'s ability to monitor Iran: "[The agreement] puts us in a far better place in terms of insight and access" than no agreement.[211] Clapper remained "concerned about compliance and deceit" but "pointed out that during the negotiation period [Iran] complied with rules" negotiated under the interim agreement (the Joint Plan of Action).[211]
Public debate [ edit ] An intense public debate in the United States took place during the congressional review period.[212] "Some of the wealthiest and most powerful donors in American politics, those for and against the accord", became involved in the public debate,[213] although "mega-donors" opposing the agreement contributed substantially more money than those supporting it.[214] From 2010 to early August 2015, the foundations of Sheldon Adelson, Paul Singer, and Haim Saban contributed a total of $13 million (at least $7.5 million, at least $2.6 million, and at least $2.9 million, respectively) to advocacy groups opposing an agreement with Iran.[214] On the other side, three groups lobbying in support of the agreement received at least $803,000 from the Ploughshares Fund, at least $425,000 from the Rockefeller Brothers Fund, and at least $68,500 from George Soros and his foundation.[214] Other philanthropists and donors supporting an agreement include S. Daniel Abraham, Tim Gill, Norman Lear, Margery Tabankin, and Arnold Hiatt.[213]
Others welcomed the JCPOA as a step forward.[215] The National Iranian American Council (NIAC), Iranian American Bar Association, and other organizations welcomed the JCPOA.[216] The NIAC released a statement saying: "Our negotiators have done their job to win a strong nuclear deal that prevents an Iranian nuclear weapon, all the while avoiding a catastrophic war. Now is the time for Congress to do theirs. Make no mistake: if Congress rejects this good deal with Iran, there will be no better deal forthcoming and Congress will be left owning an unnecessary war."[217] NIAC created a new group, NIAC Action, to run advertisements supporting the agreement.[214] NIAC also organized an open letter from 73 Middle East and foreign affairs scholars stating, "reactivating diplomatic channels between the United States and Iran is a necessary first step" to reduce conflict in the region, and that while "the nuclear deal will not automatically or immediately bring stability to the region ... Ultimately, a Middle East where diplomacy is the norm rather than the exception will enhance U.S. national security and interests."[218] Signatories to the letter include John Esposito, Ehsan Yarshater, Noam Chomsky, Peter Beinart, John Mearsheimer, and Stephen Walt.[218]
U.S. pro-Israel groups were divided on the JCPOA.[219] The American Israel Public Affairs Committee opposed the agreement and formed a new 501(c)(4) group, Citizens for a Nuclear Free Iran, to run a television advertising campaign against it.[204][219][220][221] In August 2015, it was reported that AIPAC and Citizens for a Nuclear Free Iran planned to spend between $20 million and $40 million on its campaign.[222] From mid-July to 4 August 2015 AIPAC's Citizens for a Nuclear Free Iran spent more than $11 million on network television political advertisements opposing the agreement in 23 states, including more than $1 million in California, Florida, New York, and Texas.[222][223] In the first week of August AIPAC said it had 400 meetings with congressional offices as part of its campaign to defeat the agreement.[222]
In contrast to AIPAC, another pro-Israel organization, J Street, supported the agreement, and planned a $5 million advertising effort to encourage Congress to support it.[222][224] In the first week of August J Street launched a $2 million, three-week ad campaign in support of the agreement, with TV ads in Colorado, Maryland, Michigan, Oregon, and Pennsylvania.[225][226] From mid-July through early August J Street reported having 125 meetings with congressional offices.[222] J Street also paid to fly prominent Israelis who support the agreement (including Amram Mitzna, a retired Israeli general, member of the Knesset, and mayor of Haifa) to the United States to help persuade members of Congress to support it.[222]
The group United Against Nuclear Iran (UANI) opposed the agreement and committed to spending more than $20 million on a national "TV, radio, print and digital campaign" against it.[214][227] After UANI announced its opposition, the group's president and co-founder, nonproliferation expert Gary Samore, announced that he had concluded "that the accord was in the United States' interest" and supported the agreement.[214][228] Samore thus stepped down as president and was replaced by ex-Senator Joseph I. Lieberman.[228] By 20 August UANI had released its third national television ad against the agreement.[227]
Various other groups also ran ad campaigns for or against the agreement. John R. Bolton's Foundation for American Security and Freedom ran ads against it, as did "Veterans Against the Deal", a group that does not disclose its donors.[230] Various pro-agreement ads were run by MoveOn.org (which ran an ad titled "Let Diplomacy Work"), Americans United for Change (which warned "They're back'--the Iraq war hawks are fighting the Iran deal, want more war" over photos of Bolton, Dick Cheney, and Donald Rumsfeld), and Global Zero (which ran a humorous ad featuring actors Jack Black, Morgan Freeman, and Natasha Lyonne).[230]
The New York-based Iran Project, a nonprofit led by former high-level U.S. diplomats and funded by the Rockefeller Brothers Fund, along with the United Nations Association of the United States, supported the agreement.[231] The Rockefeller fund also supported the San Francisco-based Ploughshares Fund, which spent several years marshaling support for an agreement.[231]
On 17 July 2015 a bipartisan open letter endorsing the Iran agreement was signed by more than 100 former U.S. ambassadors and high-ranking State Department officials.[232][233] The ex-ambassadors wrote: "If properly implemented, this comprehensive and rigorously negotiated agreement can be an effective instrument in arresting Iran's nuclear program and preventing the spread of nuclear weapons in the volatile and vitally important region of the Middle East. In our judgment the [plan] deserves Congressional support and the opportunity to show it can work. We firmly believe that the most effective way to protect U.S. national security, and that of our allies and friends is to ensure that tough-minded diplomacy has a chance to succeed before considering other more costly and risky alternatives."[232][233] Among the signatories to the letter were Daniel C. Kurtzer, James R. Jones, Frank E. Loy, Princeton N. Lyman, Jack F. Matlock Jr., Donald F. McHenry, Thomas E. McNamara, and Thomas R. Pickering.[233]
A separate public letter to Congress in support of the agreement from five former U.S. ambassadors to Israel from administrations of both parties and three former Under Secretaries of State was released on 26 July 2015.[234] This letter was signed by R. Nicholas Burns, James B. Cunningham, William C. Harrop, Daniel Kurtzer, Thomas R. Pickering, Edward S. Walker Jr., and Frank G. Wisner.[235] The former officials wrote, "We are persuaded that this agreement will put in place a set of constraints and monitoring measures that will arrest Iran's nuclear program for at least fifteen years and assure that this agreement will leave Iran no legitimate avenue to produce a nuclear weapon during the next ten to fifteen years. This landmark agreement removes the threat that a nuclear-armed Iran would pose to the region and to Israel specifically."[235]
Another public letter to Congress urging approval of the agreement was signed by a bipartisan group of more than 60 "national-security leaders", including politicians, retired military officers, and diplomats.[234] This letter, dated 20 July 2015, stated: "We congratulate President Obama and all the negotiators for a landmark agreement unprecedented in its importance for preventing the acquisition of nuclear weapons by Iran. ... We have followed carefully the negotiations as they have progressed and conclude that the JCPOA represents the achievement of greater security for us and our partners in the region."[234][236] Among the Republicans who signed this letter were former Treasury Secretary Paul O'Neill, former U.S. Trade Representative Carla Anderson Hills, and former Senator Nancy Landon Kassebaum.[234] Among the Democrats who signed the letter were former Secretary of State Madeleine Albright, former Senate Majority Leaders George J. Mitchell and Tom Daschle, former Senator Carl Levin, and former Defense Secretary William Perry.[234][237] Also signing were former National Security Advisors Zbigniew Brzezinski and Brent Scowcroft; Under Secretaries of State R. Nicholas Burns and Thomas R. Pickering; U.S. Ambassadors Ryan Crocker and Stuart Eizenstat; Admiral Eric T. Olson; Under Secretary of Defense for Policy Michele Flournoy; and Assistant Secretary for Nonproliferation Robert Einhorn.[237]
On 8 August 2015, 29 prominent U.S. scientists, mostly physicists, published an open letter endorsing the agreement.[238][239] The letter, addressed to Obama, said: "We congratulate you and your team on negotiating a technically sound, stringent and innovative deal that will provide the necessary assurance in the coming decade and more than Iran is not developing nuclear weapons, and provides a basis for further initiatives to raise the barriers to nuclear proliferation in the Middle East and around the globe."[239] The letter also stated that the agreement "will advance the cause of peace and security in the Middle East and can serve as a guidepost for future nonproliferation agreements".[238][239] The 29 signatories included "some of the world's most knowledgeable experts in the fields of nuclear weapons and arms control", many of whom have held Q clearances and have been longtime advisers to Congress, the White House, and federal agencies.[238] The five primary authors were Richard L. Garwin (a nuclear physicist who played a key role in the development of the first hydrogen bomb and whom The New York Times described as "among the last living physicists who helped usher in the nuclear age"); Robert J. Goldston (Director of the Princeton Program on Science and Global Security and former director of the Princeton Plasma Physics Laboratory); R. Scott Kemp (an MIT professor of Nuclear Science and Engineering and a former science advisor for nonproliferation and arms control at the State Department); Rush D. Holt (a physicist and former U.S. Representative who later became president of the American Association for the Advancement of Science); and Frank N. von Hippel (Princeton Professor of Public Policy and former assistant director for national security in the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy). Six Nobel Prize in Physics laureates co-signed the letter: Philip W. Anderson of Princeton University; Leon N. Cooper of Brown University; Sheldon L. Glashow of Boston University; David Gross of the University of California, Santa Barbara; Burton Richter of Stanford University; and Frank Wilczek of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.[238] Among the other scientists to sign are Siegfried S. Hecker (a Stanford physicist and the former director of Los Alamos National Laboratory), Freeman Dyson (of Princeton), and Sidney Drell (of Stanford).[238]
An open letter endorsing the agreement signed by 36 retired military generals and admirals and titled "The Iran Deal Benefits U.S. National Security: An Open Letter from Retired Generals and Admirals" was released on 11 August 2015.[240][241] The letter, signed by retired officers from all five branches of the U.S. armed services, said the agreement was "the most effective means currently available to prevent Iran from obtaining nuclear weapons" and "If at some point it becomes necessary to consider military action against Iran, gathering sufficient international support for such an effort would only be possible if we have first given the diplomatic path a chance. We must exhaust diplomatic options before moving to military ones."[241] The signers included General James E. "Hoss" Cartwright of the Marine Corps, former Vice Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff; General Joseph P. Hoar of the Marine Corps, the former commander of the U.S. Central Command; and Generals Merrill McPeak and Lloyd W. Newton of the Air Force.[240][241] Other signers included Lieutenant Generals Robert G. Gard Jr. and Claudia J. Kennedy; Vice Admiral Lee F. Gunn; Rear Admirals Garland Wright and Joseph Sestak; and Major General Paul D. Eaton.[241]
The above letter was answered on 25 August 2015 by a letter signed by more than 200 retired generals and admirals opposing the deal.[242][243][244] The letter asserted: "The agreement does not 'cut off every pathway' for Iran to acquire nuclear weapons. To the contrary, it provides Iran with a legitimate pathway for doing exactly that simply by abiding by the deal. ... The JCPOA would threaten the national security and vital interests of the United States and, therefore, should be disapproved by the Congress."[244][245] This letter was organized by Leon A. "Bud" Edney; other signers included Admiral James A. Lyons; Lieutenant General William G. Boykin, former Undersecretary of Defense for Intelligence; and Lieutenant General Thomas McInerney, former vice commander of U.S. Air Forces in Europe.[243]
Retired Marine Corps General Anthony Zinni said he had refused requests from both sides to sign their letters, telling Time magazine, "I'm convinced that 90% of the guys who signed the letter one way or the other don't have any clue about whether it's a good or bad deal. They sign it because somebody's asked them to sign it." Of the JCPOA, Zinni said: "The agreement's fine, if you think it can work. But if this is a Neville Chamberlain then you're in a world of shit."[245]
On 13 August retired Senators Carl Levin of Michigan, a Democrat, and John Warner of Virginia, a Republican, published an op-ed in support of the agreement, "Why hawks should also back the Iran deal", in Politico.[246] Levin and Warner, both past chairmen of the Senate Armed Services Committee, argued, "If we reject the agreement, we risk isolating ourselves and damaging our ability to assemble the strongest possible coalition to stop Iran" in the event that military action was needed in the future.[246] Levin and Warner wrote, "The deal on the table is a strong agreement on many counts, and it leaves in place the robust deterrence and credibility of a military option. We urge our former colleagues not to take any action which would undermine the deterrent value of a coalition that participates in and could support the use of a military option. The failure of the United States to join the agreement would have that effect."[246] On 14 August retired senators Richard Lugar of Indiana, a Republican, and J. Bennett Johnston of Louisiana, a Democrat, also wrote in support of the agreement.[247] In a column for Reuters Lugar and Johnston argued, "Rejection of the agreement would severely undermine the U.S. role as a leader and reliable partner around the globe. If Washington walks away from this hard-fought multilateral agreement, its dependability would likely be doubted for decades."[247] They also wrote: "Tehran would be the winner of this U.S. rejection because it would achieve its major objective: the lifting of most sanctions without being required to accept constraints on its nuclear program. Iran could also claim to be a victim of American perfidy and try to convince other nations to break with U.S. leadership and with the entire international sanctions regime."[247]
On 17 August 2015, a group of 75 arms control and nuclear nonproliferation experts issued a joint statement endorsing the agreement.[248][249] The statement said, "the JCPOA is a strong, long-term, and verifiable agreement that will be a net-plus for international nuclear nonproliferation efforts" and that the JCPOA's "rigorous limits and transparency measures will make it very likely that any future effort by Iran to pursue nuclear weapons, even a clandestine program, would be detected promptly, providing the opportunity to intervene decisively to prevent Iran from acquiring a nuclear weapon".[248][249] The letter was organized through the nonpartisan Arms Control Association.[249] Among the 75 signatories were the Valerie Plame and Joseph C. Wilson; former IAEA director-general Hans Blix; Morton H. Halperin; and experts from the Brookings Institution, Stimson Center, and other think tanks.[248][249] On 3 September an open letter to Obama signed by 56 people was issued criticizing the JCPOA as "unverifiable". The letter said: "Guided by our experience with U.S. and foreign nuclear weapons programs'--as well as with the history and practice of arms control, nonproliferation, and intelligence matters, we judge the current JCPOA to be a very bad deal indeed."[250] Signers included Boykin; Bolton; ex-CIA director James Woolsey, former national security advisor Robert McFarlane; Paula A. DeSutter, former Assistant Secretary of State for Verification, Compliance, and Implementation; various former ACDA officials; and former Sandia National Laboratories president/director C. Paul Robinson.[250]
Foreign diplomats were also involved in the congressional debate. The Israeli ambassador to the United States Ron Dermer appeared on cable television shows to attack the agreement, while ambassadors from European nations, including Sir Peter Westmacott, the British ambassador to the United States, "came on to say the precise opposite".[251] Dermer also lobbied members of Congress on Capitol Hill against the agreement,[252] while diplomats from France, Britain, and Germany made the rounds on Capitol Hill to advocate for the agreement.[253] On 4 August P5+1 diplomats held "a rare meeting of world powers' envoys on Capitol Hill" with about 30 Senate Democrats to urge support for the agreement, saying, "If Congress rejects this good deal, and the U.S. is forced to walk away, Iran will be left with an unconstrained nuclear program with far weaker monitoring arrangements, the current international consensus on sanctions would unravel, and international unity and pressure on Iran would be seriously undermined."[254]
On Meet the Press on 6 September 2015, former Secretary of State Colin Powell expressed support for the nuclear agreement with Iran, saying that it was "a pretty good deal".[255] Powell said that various provisions accepted by Iran'--such as the reduction in centrifuges and the uranium stockpile and the agreement to shut down its plutonium reactor'--were "remarkable changes" that stopped the Iranian pathway to a nuclear weapons program. Powell also defended the verification provisions of the agreement, saying: "I think a very vigorous verification regime has been put into place."[255]
Former Ambassador Dennis Ross, a longtime American negotiator in the Middle East, wrote that he was not yet convinced by either proponents or opponents of the agreement.[256] Ross wrote that the United States should be focused on "deterring the Iranians from cheating" (e.g., by producing highly enriched uranium) after year fifteen of the agreement.[256] Ross wrote, "President Obama emphasizes that the agreement is based on verification not trust. But our catching Iran cheating is less important than the price they know they will pay if we catch them. Deterrence needs to apply not just for the life of the deal."[256] As part of a deterrence strategy, Ross proposed transferring to Israel the U.S. Massive Ordnance Penetrator (MOP) "bunker buster" bomb at some point before year 15 of the agreement.[256] In a 25 August op-ed in The Washington Post, Ross and David H. Petraeus again argued for transferring the MOP to Israel.[257]
The Jewish American community was divided on the agreement. On 19 August 2015 leaders of the Reform Jewish movement, the largest Jewish denomination in the United States, issued a lengthy public statement expressing a neutral position.[258][259] The statement, signed by the leaders of the Union for Reform Judaism, Central Conference of American Rabbis, Religious Action Center of Reform Judaism and Association of Reform Zionists of America, reflected what Rabbi Rick Jacobs, president of the URJ, called "deep divisions within the movement".[258] On 20 August 2015 a group of 26 prominent current and foreign American Jewish communal leaders published a full-page ad in The New York Times with a statement backing the agreement; signers included three former chairs of the Conference of Presidents of Major American Jewish Organizations as well as former AIPAC executive director Tom Dine.[260] Separately, on 17 August 2015 a group of 340 rabbis organized by Ameinu wrote an open letter to Congress in support of the agreement, saying: "We, along with many other Jewish leaders, fully support this historic nuclear accord."[261] The signers were mostly Reform rabbis but included at least 50 rabbis from the Conservative movement and at least one Orthodox rabbi.[262] Prominent rabbis who signed this letter included Sharon Brous, Burton Visotzky, Nina Beth Cardin, Lawrence Kushner, Sharon Kleinbaum, and Amy Eilberg.[261] In a separate letter released on 27 August, 11 Democratic Jewish former members of Congress urged support for the agreement; the letter noted the signatories' pro-Israel credentials and said the agreement "halts the immediate threat of a nuclear-armed Iran" while rejecting it would "put Iran back on the path to develop a nuclear weapon within two to three months".[263] Signatories included former Senator Carl Levin and former Representatives Barney Frank, Mel Levine, Steve Rothman, and Robert Wexler.[263]
Conversely, in late August a group of 900 rabbis signed an open letter by Kalman Topp and Yonah Bookstein calling upon Congress to reject the agreement.[264] The Orthodox Union and American Jewish Committee also announced opposition to the agreement.[265][266]
The Roman Catholic Church expressed support for the agreement. In a 14 July 2015 letter to Congress, Bishop Oscar Cantº, chairman of the Committee on International Justice and Peace of the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops, wrote that the JCPOA was "a momentous agreement" that "signals progress in global nuclear non-proliferation".[267][268] Cantº wrote that Catholic bishops in the United States "will continue to urge Congress to endorse the result of these intense negotiations because the alternative leads toward armed conflict, an outcome of profound concern to the Church".[267][268]
On 25 August 2015 a group of 53 Christian faith leaders from a variety of denominations sent a message to Congress urging them to support the agreement.[269] The Christian leaders wrote: "This is a moment to remember the wisdom of Jesus who proclaimed from the Sermon on the Mount, 'Blessed are the peacemakers, for they shall be called children of God' (Matthew 5:9). ... There is no question we are all better off with this deal than without it."[269] The letter was coordinated by a Quaker group, the Friends Committee on National Legislation.[269] Signatories to the letter included Jim Wallis of Sojourners; John C. Dorhauer, general minister and president of the United Church of Christ; Shane Claiborne; Adam Estle of Evangelicals for Middle East Understanding; Archbishop Vicken Aykazian of the Armenian Orthodox Church; A. Roy Medley, the head of American Baptist Churches USA; the Reverend Paula Clayton Dempsey of the Alliance of Baptists, senior pastor Joel C. Hunter of Northland, A Church Distributed; and Sister Simone Campbell, a leader of the Catholic "Nuns on the Bus" campaigns.[269][270]
Congressional committee hearings [ edit ] A hearing on the JCPOA before the Senate Foreign Relations Committee took place on 23 July 2015. Secretary of State Kerry, Treasury Secretary Jack Lew, and Energy Secretary Moniz testified.[198][271] Republican Senator Bob Corker of Tennessee, the committee chairman, said in his opening statement that when the talks began the goal was to dismantle the Iranian nuclear program, whereas the achieved agreement codified "the industrialization of their nuclear program".[272][273] Corker, addressing Kerry, said, "I believe you've been fleeced" and "what you've really done here is you have turned Iran from being a pariah to now Congress'--Congress being a pariah."[253] Corker said a new threshold in U.S. foreign policy had been crossed and the agreement would "enable a state sponsor of terror to obtain sophisticated, industrial nuclear development program that has, as we know, only one real practical need".[274] The committee's ranking Democratic member, Senator Benjamin Cardin of Maryland, said he had many questions and his hope was that the answers will cause a debate "in Congress and the American people".[274] Democrats, led by Senator Barbara Boxer of California, expressed support for the agreement, with Boxer saying that criticisms by Republicans were "ridiculous", "unfair", and "wrong".[198][253] Corker and Cardin sent Obama a letter saying the bilateral IAEA-Iran document should be available for Congress to review.[253]
At the hearing Kerry, Lew, and Moniz "were unequivocal in their statements that the accord was the best that could be achieved and that without it, the international sanctions regime would collapse".[198] Kerry warned that the United States would be "on our own" if it walked away from a multilateral agreement alongside the five global powers[253] and added that the belief that "some sort of unicorn arrangement involving Iran's complete capitulation" could be achieved was "a fantasy, plain and simple".[198] The Washington Post reported, "Moniz emerged as the calm center of the proceedings, beginning his interjections with recitations of what he described as 'facts,' and mildly observing that Republican characterizations were 'incorrect.'"[253] Kerry, Lew, and Moniz faced "uniform animus of Republicans" at the hearing,[198] with Republican senators giving "long and often scathing speeches denouncing what they described as a fatally flawed agreement and accusing the administration of dangerous naivete" and showing "little interest in responses" from the three cabinet secretaries.[253] The Washington Post reported on 12 issues related to the agreement over which the two sides disagreed at the hearing.[275]
On 28 July Kerry, Moniz, and Lew testified before the House Committee on Foreign Affairs.[276] Committee chairman Ed Royce, Republican of California, said in his opening statement, "we are being asked to consider an agreement that gives Iran permanent sanctions relief for temporary nuclear restrictions."[276][277] "Royce also said the inspection regime 'came up short' from 'anywhere, anytime' access to Iran's nuclear facilities and criticized the removal of restrictions on Iran's ballistic missile program and conventional arms."[278] The committee's ranking member, Representative Eliot Engel, Democrat of New York, said he has "serious questions and concerns" about the agreement.[278][279] Kerry, Lew, and Moniz spent four hours testifying before the committee.[280][281] At the hearing Kerry said that if Congress killed the deal, "You'll not only be giving Iran a free pass to double the pace of its uranium enrichment, to build a heavy-water reactor, to install new and more efficient centrifuges, but they will do it all without the unprecedented inspection and transparency measures that we have secured. Everything that we have tried to prevent will now happen."[282]
Senators John McCain (Republican of Arizona), the committee chair, and Jack Reed (Democrat of Rhode Island), the committee ranking member, at a hearing of the Senate Armed Services Committee on the JCPOA, 29 July 2015.
On 29 July Secretary of Defense Ashton Carter, General Martin Dempsey, the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, Kerry, Moniz, and Lew appeared before the Senate Armed Services Committee in a three-hour hearing.[283] Carter and Dempsey had been invited to testify by Republican Senator John McCain of Arizona, the chairman of the committee; Kerry, Moniz, and Lew attended the hearing at the invitation of the Pentagon.[284][285] In his opening statement McCain said that if the agreement failed and U.S. armed forces were called to take action against Iran, they "could be at greater risk because of this agreement". He also asserted that the agreement could lead American allies and partners to fateful decisions and result in "growing regional security competition, new arms races, nuclear proliferation, and possibly conflict".[286] The committee's ranking Democratic member, Senator Jack Reed of Rhode Island, said Congress had an obligation "to independently validate that the agreement will meet our common goal of stopping Iran from acquiring a nuclear weapon" and that "the agreement, no matter your position on it, is historic and, if implemented scrupulously, could serve as a strategic inflection point in the world's relations with Iran, for international non-proliferation efforts, and for the political and security dynamics in the Middle East."[287][288]
Carter said the agreement prevented Iran from "getting a nuclear weapon in a comprehensive and verifiable way".[284] He assured the committee that the deal would not limit the U.S. ability to respond with military force if needed.[289] In response to a question from McCain, Carter said he had "no reason to foresee" that the agreement would cause Iran's threatening behavior to change more broadly, stating "That is why it's important that Iran not have a nuclear weapon."[285][290] Dempsey offered what he described as a "pragmatic" view.[283] He neither praised nor criticized the deal, but testified that the agreement reduced the chances of a near-term military conflict between the United States and Iran.[283] Dempsey said the agreement worked to keep Iran from developing nuclear weapons but did not address other concerns about Iran's malign activities in the region, ranging from "ballistic missile technology to weapons trafficking, to ... malicious activity in cyberspace".[291] He testified, "Ultimately, time and Iranian behavior will determine if the nuclear agreement is effective and sustainable" and stated that he would continue to provide military options to the president.[291] Senator Joni Ernst expressed disagreement with Obama's statement that the choice was the Iran nuclear deal or war. When Dempsey testified that the United States had "a range of options" he had presented to Obama, Ernst said: "it's imperative everybody on the panel understand that there are other options available."[292][293]
Under the JCPOA Iran must submit a full report on its nuclear history before it can receive any sanctions relief.[294] The IAEA has confidential technical arrangements with many countries as a matter of standard operating procedure.[294][295][296] "Republican lawmakers refer to these agreements as 'secret side deals' and claim that the JCPOA hinges on a set of agreements no one in the administration has actually seen."[295] Senator Tom Cotton of Arkansas, a Republican opponent of the agreement, said that Kerry had "acted like Pontius Pilate" and "washed his hands, kicked it to the IAEA, knowing Congress would not get this information unless someone went out to find it."[297] On 30 July Republican Senator Ted Cruz of Texas introduced a resolution seeking a delay in the review period, arguing, "The 60-calendar day period for review of such agreement in the Senate cannot be considered to have begun until the Majority Leader certifies that all of the materials required to be transmitted under the definition of the term 'agreement' under such Act, including any side agreements with Iran and United States Government-issued guidance materials in relation to Iran, have been transmitted to the Majority Leader."[186][187] On 5 August, IAEA director general Yukiya Amano spoke with members of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee in a closed briefing about two IAEA documents: an agreement on inspection protocols with Iran and an agreement with Iran regarding Iranian disclosure of its previous nuclear activity (known as Possible Military Dimensions).[295][298] Following this briefing with Amano, Corker told reporters: "The majority of members here left with far more questions than they had before the meeting took place" and "We can not get him to even confirm that we will have physical access inside of Parchin." Cardin told reporters: "I thought today was helpful, but it was not a substitute for seeing the document."[299]
State Department spokesman John Kirby responded, "There's no secret deals between Iran and the IAEA that the P5+1 has not been briefed on in detail" and stated "These kinds of technical arrangements with the IAEA are a matter of standard practice, that they're not released publicly or to other states, but our experts are familiar and comfortable with the contents, which we would be happy to discuss with Congress in a classified setting."[296] The Center for Arms Control and Non-Proliferation wrote, "The arrangement specifies procedural information regarding how the IAEA will conduct its investigation into Iran's past nuclear history, including mentioning the names of informants who will be interviewed. Releasing this information would place those informants, and the information they hold, at risk."[294] Mark Hibbs of the Nuclear Policy Program at the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace and Thomas Shea, a former IAEA safeguards official and former head of Defense Nuclear Nonproliferation Programs at the Pacific Northwest National Laboratory, wrote that the charges of a "secret side deal" made by opponents of the agreement were a "manufactured controversy".[92] Hibbs and Shea wrote, "The IAEA has safeguards agreement with 180 countries. All have similar information protection provisions. Without these, governments would not open their nuclear programs for multilateral oversight. So IAEA Director General Yukiya Amano was acting by the book on August 5 when he told members of Congress that he couldn't share with them the details of [the] verification protocol the IAEA had negotiated with Iran as part of a bilateral 'roadmap.'"[92] David Albright, founder and president of the Institute for Science and International Security and a former IAEA nuclear inspector, stated that the demands for greater transparency regarding the agreement between Iran and IAEA "aren't unreasonable" and "Iran is a big screamer for more confidentiality. Nonetheless, if the IAEA wanted to make it more open, it could."[300] Albright also proposed that the United States "should clearly and publicly confirm, and Congress should support with legislation, that if Iran does not address the IAEA's concerns about the past military dimensions of its nuclear programs, U.S. sanctions will not be lifted".[301]
Congressional support and opposition [ edit ] Republican leaders vowed to attempt to kill the agreement as soon as it was released, even before classified sections were made available to Congress, and "Republican lawmakers raced to send out news releases criticizing it."[302] According to The Washington Post, "most congressional Republicans remained deeply skeptical, some openly scornful, of the prospect of relieving economic sanctions while leaving any Iranian uranium-enrichment capability intact."[303] Mitch McConnell said the deal "appears to fall well short of the goal we all thought was trying to be achieved, which was that Iran would not be a nuclear state".[303] A New York Times analysis stated that Republican opposition to the agreement "seems born of genuine distaste for the deal's details, inherent distrust of President Obama, intense loyalty to Israel and an expansive view of the role that sanctions have played beyond preventing Iran's nuclear abilities".[302] The Washington Post identified 12 issues related to the agreement on which the two sides disagreed, including the efficacy of inspections at undeclared sites; the effectiveness of the snapback sanctions; the significance of limits on enrichment; the significance of IAEA side agreements; the effectiveness of inspections of military sites; the consequences of walking away from an agreement; and the effects of lifting sanctions.[275][h]
One area of disagreement between supporters and opponents of the JCPOA is the consequences of walking away from an agreement, and whether renegotiation of the agreement is a realistic option.[275] Senator Chuck Schumer, Democrat of New York, an opponent of the agreement, called for the U.S. government to keep sanctions in place, strengthen them, and "pursue the hard-trodden path of diplomacy once more, difficult as it may be".[206] Senator Bob Corker, Republican of Tennessee, said that he believed that it was "hyperbole" to say that the agreement was the only alternative to war.[275] President Obama, by contrast, argued that renegotiation of the deal is unrealistic, stating in his American University speech, "the notion that there is a better deal to be had. ... relies on vague promises of toughness" and stated, "Those making this argument are either ignorant of Iranian society, or they are not being straight with the American people. ... Neither the Iranian government, or the Iranian opposition, or the Iranian people would agree to what they would view as a total surrender of their sovereignty."[205] Obama also argued, "those who say we can just walk away from this deal and maintain sanctions are selling a fantasy. Instead of strengthening our position, as some have suggested, Congress' rejection would almost certainly result in multi-lateral sanctions unraveling," because "our closest allies in Europe or in Asia, much less China or Russia, certainly are not going to enforce existing sanctions for another five, 10, 15 years according to the dictates of the U.S. Congress because their willingness to support sanctions in the first place was based on Iran ending its pursuit of nuclear weapons. It was not based on the belief that Iran cannot have peaceful nuclear power."[205] Secretary of State Kerry echoed these remarks, saying in July 2015 that the idea of a "'better deal,' some sort of unicorn arrangement involving Iran's complete capitulation . ... is a fantasy, plain and simple, and our intelligence community will tell you that".[275][311] Senator Al Franken, Democrat of Minnesota, a supporter of the agreement, wrote: "Some say that, should the Senate reject this agreement, we would be in position to negotiate a "better" one. But I've spoken to representatives of the five nations that helped broker the deal, and they agree that this simply wouldn't be the case."[312][i]
On 28 July 2015 Representative Sander M. Levin, Democrat of Michigan, the longest-serving Jewish member now in Congress, announced in a lengthy statement that he would support the JCPOA, saying, "the agreement is the best way" to stop Iran from obtaining a nuclear weapon and that a rejection of the agreement would lead the international sanctions regime to "quickly fall apart", as "sanctions likely would not be continued even by our closest allies, and the United States would be isolated trying to enforce our unilateral sanctions as to Iran's banking and oil sectors."[280][316][317]
A key figure in the congressional review process is Senator Benjamin Cardin of Maryland, a Democrat who is the ranking member of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee.[182] Cardin took a phone call from Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu opposing the agreement and participated in a private 90-minute session with Energy Secretary Moniz supporting the agreement.[182] On 21 July Cardin said that if the agreement is implemented, the United States should increase military aid to Israel and friendly Gulf states.[182]
On 4 August 2015 three key and closely watched Senate Democrats'--Tim Kaine of Virginia (a Foreign Relations Committee member), Barbara Boxer of California (also a Foreign Relations Committee member), and Bill Nelson of Florida'--announced their support for the agreement.[318] In a floor speech that day, Kaine said that the agreement is "far preferable to any other alternative, including war" and, "America has honored its best traditions and shown that patient diplomacy can achieve what isolation and hostility cannot."[318] In a similar floor speech the same day, Nelson said, "I am convinced [that the agreement] will stop Iran from developing a nuclear weapon for at least the next 10 to 15 years. No other available alternative accomplishes this vital objective"[319][320] and "If the U.S. walks away from this multinational agreement, I believe we would find ourselves alone in the world with little credibility."[321] Conversely, another closely watched senator, Chuck Schumer of New York, who was expected to make a bid to become Senate Democratic leader,[212] announced his opposition to the agreement on 6 August, writing, "there is a strong case that we are better off without an agreement than with one"[206][322]
According to an Associated Press report, the classified assessment of the United States Intelligence Community on the agreement concludes that because Iran will be required by the agreement to provide international inspectors with "unprecedented volume of information about nearly every aspect of its existing nuclear program", Iran's ability to conceal a covert weapons program will be diminished.[323][324] In a 13 August letter to colleagues, ten current and former Democratic members of the House Select Committee on Intelligence (including House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi and Intelligence Committee ranking member Adam Schiff) referred to this assessment as a reason to support the agreement, writing, "We are confident that this monitoring and the highly intrusive inspections provided for in the agreement'--along with our own intelligence capabilities'--make it nearly impossible for Iran to develop a covert enrichment effort without detection."[324][325] The ten members also wrote "You need not take our word for it" and referred members to the classified assessment itself, which is located in an office in the Capitol basement and is available for members of Congress to read.[324][325]
Congressional votes [ edit ] A resolution of disapproval was initially expected to pass both the House and Senate, meaning, "The real challenge for the White House is whether they can marshal enough Democrats to sustain the veto."[326][327] Two-thirds of both houses (the House of Representatives and the Senate) are required to override a veto, meaning that one-third of either house (146 votes in the House, or 34 in the Senate) could sustain (uphold) President Obama's veto of a resolution of disapproval.[328][329]
By early September 2015, 34 senators had publicly confirmed support for the deal, a crucial threshold because it ensured that the Senate could sustain (i. e., uphold) any veto of a resolution of disapproval.[330] Senator Barbara Mikulski of Maryland announced support on 2 September, a day after Chris Coons of Delaware and Bob Casey, Jr., of Pennsylvania also announced support, reaching 34 votes and assuring that an eventual disapproval resolution passed in the Senate could not override an Obama veto.[331] By the following day, 38 Democratic senators supported the deal, 3 were opposed, and 5 were still undecided.[332]
By 8 September, all senators had made a commitment on the agreement, with 42 in support (40 Democrats and two independents) and 58 opposed (54 Republicans and four Democrats).[330] It was possible for senators in support of the agreement to kill the disapproval resolution outright in the Senate by effectively filibustering it, making it unnecessary for Obama to veto a disapproval resolution at all.[330] But this was possible only if at least 41 voted to do so, and several senators in support of the agreement, including Coons, "have suggested they'd prefer an up-or-down vote on the deal, instead of blocking it altogether".[330]
The apparent success of a strategy to marshal congressional support for the deal, linked to a carefully orchestrated rollout of endorsements (although Democratic Senate Whip Dick Durbin and other officials disputed the suggestion of coordination[333]) was attributed to lessons the White House and congressional Democrats learned during struggles in previous summers with Republicans, in particular over Obamacare.[334] An August 2015 meeting at which top diplomats from the UK, Russia, China, Germany, and France told 10 undecided Democratic senators they had no intention of returning to the negotiating table was reported to be particularly crucial.[334] Coons said: "They were clear and strong that we will not join you in re-imposing sanctions."[334]
On 20 August 2015, Pelosi said that House Democrats had the votes to uphold a veto of a resolution of disapproval.[335] To sustain a veto, she would need to hold only 146 of the 188 House Democrats;[336] by 20 August, about 60 House Democrats had publicly declared their support for the final agreement,[337] and about 12 had publicly declared their opposition.[335] In May 2015, before the final agreement was announced, 151 House Democrats signed in support for the broad outlines in the April framework agreement; none of those signatories have announced opposition to the final agreement.[329]
It was originally expected that the House would vote on a formal resolution of disapproval introduced by Representative Ed Royce, Republican of California, the chair of the House Foreign Affairs Committee.[338][j] As the Senate moved toward a vote on a resolution of disapproval, House leadership (under Republican control) planned to vote on a similar resolution of disapproval.[341] But conservative Republicans "revolted in protest" as "the chamber's right flank wanted tougher action from its leader" and the House Republican leadership (under Speaker John Boehner) planned to vote instead chose to bring a resolution of approval to the floor "as a way to effectively force Democrats who had voiced support for the president to formally register such endorsement".[341] On 11 September 2015 the resolution failed, as expected, on a 162''269 vote; 244 Republicans and 25 Democrats voted no, while 162 Democrats and no Republicans voted yes.[341][342] On the same day House Republicans held two additional votes, one on a resolution claiming that the Obama administration had failed to meet the requirements of a congressional review period on the deal and another resolution which would prevent the United States from lifting any sanctions.[341][343] The former resolution passed on a party-line vote, with all Republicans in favor and all Democrats opposed; the latter resolution passed on nearly a party-line vote, with all Republicans and two Democrats in favor, and every other Democrat opposed.[341][343][344] The House action against the resolution was a "symbolic vote that will have no consequence for the implementation of the deal", and the two anti-agreement measures passed by the House were seen as "unlikely to even reach Obama's desk".[343][344]
On 10 September, the day before the vote, Boehner threatened to "use every tool at our disposal to stop, slow, and delay this agreement from being fully implemented", and said that a lawsuit by House Republicans against the president (claiming that the Iran Nuclear Agreement Review Act was not followed) was "an option that is very possible".[343][345] Four months later House Republicans abandoned their plans for a lawsuit against the administration over the JCPOA.[346]
In July 2015, conservative legal activist Larry Klayman filed a lawsuit against Obama and members of Congress in federal court in West Palm Beach, Florida, asserting that the agreement should be considered a treaty requiring Senate ratification.[347][348] Klayman's suit was dismissed for lack of standing in September 2015.[349]
Review period in Iran [ edit ] Iranian Supreme Leader Khamenei issued a letter of guidelines to President Rouhani, ordering him on how to proceed with the deal.[350][351] On 21 June 2015, the Iranian Parliament (Majlis) decided to form a committee to study the JCPOA and to wait at least 80 days before voting on it.[352] Foreign minister Mohammad Javad Zarif and Atomic Energy Organization of Iran chief Ali Akbar Salehi, defended the deal in Parliament on the same day.[352] Although the Iranian constitution gives Parliament the right to cancel the deal, it was reported that this outcome is unlikely.[352] The New York Times reported, "the legislators have effectively opted to withhold their judgment until they know whether the American Congress approves of the deal."[352]
In televised remarks made on 23 July 2015, Iranian President Hassan Rouhani rejected domestic criticism of the JCPOA from Iranian hardliners, "such as the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps and its allies", which "have criticized the accord as an invasive affront to the country's sovereignty and a capitulation to foreign adversaries, particularly the United States".[353] In remarks described by The New York Times as "blunt" and uncharacteristically frank, Rouhani claimed a popular mandate to make an agreement based on his election in 2013 and warned that the alternative was "an economic Stone Age" brought on by sanctions which (as the Times described) have "shriveled oil exports and denied the country access to the global banking system".[353] On 26 July, a two-page, top-secret directive sent to Iranian newspaper editors from Iran's Supreme National Security Council surfaced online.[354] In the document, newspapers are instructed to avoid criticism of the agreement and to avoid giving the impression of "a rift" at the highest levels of government.[354] The BBC reported that the document appears to be aimed at constraining criticism of the JCPOA by Iranian hardliners.[354]
On 3 September, Iranian supreme leader Khamenei said that the Majlis should make the final decision on the agreement.[355] On the same day, Ali Larijani, the speaker of the parliament, said that he supported the agreement and that: "The agreement needs to be discussed and needs to be approved by the Iranian parliament. There will be heated discussions and debates."[355]
Abbas Milani and Michael McFaul wrote: "those [in Iran] supporting the deal include moderates inside the government, many opposition leaders, a majority of Iranian citizens, and many in the Iranian American diaspora'--a disparate group that has rarely agreed on anything until now."[356] Within the government, Rouhani and Foreign Minister Javad Zarif, who negotiated the agreement, "are now the most vocal in defending it against Iranian hawks".[356] Also vocally supporting the agreement are former presidents Akbar Hashemi Rafsanjani and Mohammad Khatami and moderates within parliament.[356] The agreement is also supported by most prominent opposition leaders, including Mir-Hossein Mousavi, a 2009 presidential candidate who is under house arrest for his role as a leader of the Green Movement.[356]
Conversely, "the most militantly authoritarian, conservative, and anti-Western leaders and groups within Iran oppose the deal."[356] The anti-agreement coalition in Iran includes former president Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, former head of Atomic Energy Organization of Iran Fereydoon Abbasi, ex-nuclear negotiator Saeed Jalili; and various conservative clerics and Revolutionary Guard commanders.[356] This group has "issued blistering attacks on the incompetence of Iran's negotiating team, claiming that negotiators caved on many key issues and were outmaneuvered by more clever and sinister American diplomats".[356]
Anti-JCPOA representatives of Islamic Consultative Assembly protested Ali Akbar Saheli and made death threats toward him
[357]Iranian defense minister Hossein Dehqan said on 2 September that Iran would not allow the IAEA to visit every site or facility that it wishes.[358]
The Majlis special commission for examining the JCPOA, has invited Ali Shamkhani, as well as members of former nuclear negotiation team including Ali Bagheri and Fereydoon Abbasi to comment on the deal.[359] During the session, Saeed Jalili, ex-chief negotiator has slammed the deal, stating "approximately 100 absolute rights" of Iran were conceded to the opposing side. He believes the deal is "unacceptable" because Iran makes an "exceptional [nuclear case], replacing 'permission' with 'right' under the NPT, and accepting unconventional measures".[360] He also believes that the deal has crossed the red lines drawn by the Supreme leader of Iran. His testimony was criticized by commission members Masoud Pezeshkian and Abbas Ali Mansouri Arani.[361] In another session, current negotiatiors Abbas Araqchi and Majid Takht-Ravanchi defended the deal, led by Javad Zarif.[362]
In the Iranian media, the leading reformist newspapers, Etemad and Shargh, "continue to write approvingly of the negotiations and their outcome".[363] Conversely, the leading conservative paper Ettelaat has criticized the agreement.[363] The most "bombastic and hard-line criticism of the deal" has come from Kayhan, which is edited by Hossein Shariatmadari and closely associated with Khamenei, the supreme leader.[363]
The agreement is supported by many Iranian dissidents, including Nobel Peace Prize laureate, human rights activist, and Iranian exile Shirin Ebadi, who "labeled as 'extremists' those who opposed the agreement in Iran and America".[356] Likewise, dissident journalist and former political prisoner Akbar Ganji expressed hope, "step-by-step nuclear accords, the lifting of economic sanctions and the improvement of the relations between Iran and Western powers will gradually remove the warlike and securitized environment from Iran."[356] Citing Iran's human rights situation and the "lack of religious and political freedom in the country", some dissidents opposed the agreement, including Ahmad Batebi, Nazanin Afshin-Jam, and Roozbeh Farahanipour, who signed an open letter arguing, "more pressure should be applied to the regime, not less."[364]
On 13 October The New York Times and many other major U.S. news sources reported that the Iranian Parliament had approved the JPCOA with 161 votes in favor, 59 against and 13 abstentions. Major Iranian news sources including Fars News Agency and Press TV, called a semi-official government source by U.S. media, reported that what was actually approved was a document consisting of the text of the JPCOA supplemented by text unilaterally added by Iran and not agreed to by the P5+1.[365][366][367][368][369]
Adoption Day [ edit ] On 18 October 2015 EU High Representative Mogherini and Iranian Foreign Minister Zarif jointly announced "Adoption Day" for the JCPOA, noting actions taken and planned by the EU, Iran, the IAEA, and the United States, and stating, "All sides remain strongly committed to ensuring that implementation of the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action can start as soon as possible."[370]
On 20 September 2015, Director-General Yukiya Amano of the IAEA went to the Parchin missile production facility, along with Director of Safeguards Tero Varjoranta, to obtain clarifications on the nuclear activities of the site.[371][372][373] The next day, Amano professed satisfaction with the samples taken by the Iranians themselves and handed over to the IAEA under "established procedures". IAEA experts were not physically present during the sampling, but Amano said the procedure meets "strict agency criteria" that ensure "the integrity of the sampling process and the authenticity of the samples."[374] In June 2016, IAEA investigators reported to the Wall Street Journal that they had reported in December 2015 traces of uranium found at the Parchin facility.[375]
Implementation Day [ edit ] Last meeting between diplomatic teams of Iran and the United States, at the Palais Coburg Hotel in Vienna
After the IAEA confirmed that Iran met the relevant requirements under the JCPOA, all nuclear sanctions were lifted by the UN, the EU and the United States on 16 January 2016.[376]
Washington imposed new sanctions on 11 companies and individuals for supplying Iran's ballistic missile program on the first day of the implementation.[377][378][379] According to Kerry, $1.7 billion in debt with interest was to be paid to Tehran. But some Iranian financial institutions, including Ansar Bank, Bank Saderat, Bank Saderat PLC, and Mehr Bank, remained on the SDN List[380] and a number of U.S. sanctions with respect to Iran, including existing terrorism, human rights and ballistic missiles-related sanctions, remained in place.[381]
Status in U.S. law [ edit ] In a letter sent to then U.S. Representative Mike Pompeo, the U.S. State Department said that the JCPOA "is not a treaty or an executive agreement, and is not a signed document".[382]
According to the Congressional Research Service, different definitions of "treaty" are used in international law and in domestic U.S. law. According to the Vienna Convention on the Law of Treaties, "The term 'treaty' has a broader meaning under international law than under domestic law. Under international law, 'treaty' refers to any binding international agreement.[383] Under domestic U.S. law, 'treaty' signifies only those binding international agreements that have received the advice and consent of the Senate."[384]
[ edit ] Some argue that deterrence is the key to ensuring not just that Iran is in compliance with the agreement but also to preventing them from developing nuclear weapons.[385] Former Assistant Secretary for Nonproliferation Robert Einhorn, a supporter of the agreement, wrote it would be better to have permanent or longer-term restrictions on Iran's enrichment program, but preventing a nuclear-armed Iran is possible, "provided the United States and key partners maintain a strong and credible deterrent against a future Iranian decision to go for the bomb".[386] According to Michael Eisenstadt, Director of the Military and Security Studies Program at the Washington Institute for Near East Policy, "deterring Iran from developing or acquiring nuclear weapons will remain the core imperative driving U.S. policy in the coming years".[387]
Four days after the JCPOA was adopted, Khamenei delivered a speech, highlighting his fatwa and rejecting the claim that the nuclear talks rather than Iran's religious abstinence prevented Iran from acquiring nuclear weapons. He said:
The Americans say they stopped Iran from acquiring a nuclear weapon. They know it's not true. We had a fatwa (religious ruling), declaring nuclear weapons to be religiously forbidden under Islamic law. It had nothing to do with the nuclear talks.[388]
In a letter[389] addressed to Representative Jerrold Nadler, Democrat of New York, President Obama raised the issue about U.S. ability to deter Iran from obtaining nuclear weapons:
The JCPOA, moreover, does not remove any of our options when it comes to preventing Iran from acquiring a nuclear weapon. As I have repeatedly emphasized, my Administration will take whatever means are necessary to achieve that goal, including military means. Should Iran seek to dash toward a nuclear weapon, all of the options available to the United States'--including the military option'--will remain available through the life of the deal and beyond.[389]
Ambassador Dennis Ross, former top Mideast official, and General David Petraeus, former CIA director, wrote in a Washington Post op-ed, "Bolstering deterrence is essential in addressing key vulnerabilities" of the agreement. Petraeus and Ross asserted that if Iran decide to race toward a nuclear weapon "there is a need not to speak of our options but of our readiness to use force", since the threat of force is far more likely to deter the Iranians. They said the president could resolve their concerns by stating that he would use military force to prevent Iran from obtaining a nuclear weapon, including producing highly enriched uranium, even after the deal ends in 15 years. It is "critically important for the president to state this clearly, particularly given his perceived hesitancy to use force", they said.[385][390]
In the same letter, Obama detailed the possible non-military unilateral and multilateral responses to be employed should Iran violate the agreement, however, the president made it clear: "Ultimately, it is essential that we retain the flexibility to decide what responsive measures we and our allies deem appropriate for any non-compliance."[389] Flexibility meant that Obama rejected specifying "the penalties for smaller violations of the accord" in advance.[391]
Open letter [ edit ] The open letter, which was signed by more than 100 former U.S. ambassadors and high-ranking State Department officials endorsing the agreement, begins with the words: "The Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) with Iran stands as a landmark agreement in deterring the proliferation of nuclear weapons."[233][234] In contrast, Michael Mandelbaum, the Christian A. Herter Professor at the Johns Hopkins University, School of Advanced International Studies, wrote that nuclear nonproliferation in the Middle East ultimately depended "not on the details of the Vienna agreement but on the familiar Cold-War policy of deterrence". Mandelbaum added that if Obama left office without Iran building the bomb, "the responsibility for conducting a policy of effective deterrence will fall on his successor."[392] Harvard law professor Alan Dershowitz said, "Nothing currently on the table will deter Iran. Sanctions are paper protests to an oil-rich nation. Diplomacy has already failed because Russia and China are playing both sides."[393]
U.S. denies recertification and then withdraws (2017''present) [ edit ] The United States certified in April 2017 and in July 2017 that Iran was complying with the deal.[394][395]
On 13 October 2017 President Trump announced that he would not make the certification required under the Iran Nuclear Agreement Review Act, accusing Iran of violating the "spirit" of the deal and calling on the U.S. Congress and international partners to "address the deal's many serious flaws so that the Iranian regime can never threaten the world with nuclear weapons".[396]
Declaring that he would not certify the deal, Trump left it up to Congress whether to reimpose sanctions on Iran and "blow up" the deal. But Trump's aides sought to enact rules indicating how the United States could "reimpose sanctions", and Trump listed three items that could provide such a "trigger" for leaving the deal: Iran's intercontinental ballistic missile, Iranian rejection of "an extension of the deal's existing constraint on its nuclear activities", and "evidence that Iran could manufacture a bomb in less than 12 months". Trump described the deal as "one of the worst and most one-sided transactions the United States has ever entered into".[397]
Iranian President Hassan Rouhani said that getting out from the Iran nuclear deal would "carry a high cost" for the United States,[398] and that no president was allowed to "single-handedly revoke" the deal signed by the UN.[399]
After Trump said that he "cannot and will not" recertify the nuclear deal with Iran, Theresa May, Emmanuel Macron and Angela Merkel supported the deal in a joint statement. Mogherini, the European Union's foreign policy chief, said that the agreement was working well and that no one country could break the deal made by Britain, France, Germany, Russia, China and the European Union. She suggested a "collective process" for keeping the deal. Russia's foreign minister confirmed that Iran was abiding by the deal.[399]
U.S. withdrawal (May 2018) [ edit ] Trump announces U.S. withdrawal on 8 May.
On 8 May 2018 the United States officially withdrew from the agreement after U.S. President Donald Trump signed a Presidential Memorandum ordering the reinstatement of harsher sanctions.[400] In his 8 May speech President Trump called the Iran deal "horrible" and said the United States would "work with our allies to find a real, comprehensive, and lasting solution" to prevent Iran from developing nuclear arms.[401] The IAEA has continued to assess that Iran has been in compliance with JCPOA and that it had "no credible indications of activities in Iran relevant to the development of a nuclear explosive device after 2009".[402] Other parties to the deal stated that they will work to preserve the deal even after the U.S. withdrawal.[403]
Consequences of U.S. withdrawal [ edit ] The Iranian currency dropped significantly right after Trump announced the U.S. withdrawal.[404] The U.S. dollar was worth 35,000 rial before U.S. withdrawal and 42,000 in 2021.[405] International banks that chose to trade with Iran during the sanctions paid large fines.[406] Iran's supreme leader, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, said, "I said from the first day: don't trust America".[407] The American flag was set on fire in Iran's Parliament.[408] According to IDF sources, Iranian Revolutionary Guard Quds Forces based in Syria launched rockets at Israeli military targets the next evening, 9 May. CNN reported that, "if confirmed", it was "the first time Iranian forces have fired rockets directly at Israeli forces."[409]
Ali Khamenei's conditions for Europe to preserve the JCPOA [ edit ] Following the U.S. withdrawal from JCPOA, Iran supreme leader Ali Khamenei presented seven conditions for Europe to meet its commitments. Among them was that European powers must take steps to preserve business relations with Iranian banks and purchase Iranian oil despite U.S. pressure. He also said there was no need to hold new discussions about Iran's ballistic missile program and regional activities.[410]
Defection of Iran (May 2019 '' November 2019) [ edit ] In May 2019, the IAEA certified that Iran was abiding by the deal's main terms, but questions were raised about how many advanced centrifuges Iran was allowed to have, as that was only loosely defined in the deal.[18]
On 8 May 2019, Iran announced it would suspend implementation of some parts of the JCPOA, threatening further action in 60 days unless it received protection from U.S. sanctions.[411]
On 7 July 2019, Iran announced that it had started to increase uranium enrichment beyond the agreed 3.67% limit.[412] The same day, the IAEA stated its inspectors would verify Iran's announcement.[412] Iranian Foreign Minister Javad Zarif sent a letter to his European counterpart Federica Mogherini notifying her about Iran's noncompliance.[412]
On 4 November 2019, Iran doubled the number of advanced centrifuges it operates. Iran is also enriching uranium to 4.5%; the agreement limits enrichment to 3.67%.[citation needed ] On 5 November 2019, Iranian nuclear chief Ali Akbar Salehi announced that Iran will enrich uranium to 5% at the Fordow Fuel Enrichment Plant, adding that it had the capability to enrich uranium to 20% if needed.[413]
Diplomatic conflict (2019''present) [ edit ] One year after the United States withdrew from the JCPOA and reimposed several unilateral sanctions on Iran, Iran took countermeasures. As a first step, according to Rouhani, Iran halted sales of excess enriched uranium and heavy water to other countries. Rouhani also said that Iran would resume enrichment of uranium beyond 3.67% if other parties could not fulfill their duties to let Iran benefit from the economic advantages of the JCPOA. Iran made this decision after all major European companies abandoned doing business with Iran out of fear of U.S. punishment.[414]
On 14 May 2019, in a meeting with senior officials, Iran's Supreme Leader, Ali Khamenei, described negotiations with the United States on another nuclear deal as "poison" and said, "We don't seek a war, and they don't either. They know it's not in their interests".[415]
In 2020, Trump and Pompeo asserted that the U.S. remained a "participant" in the agreement, despite having formally withdrawn in 2018, in an effort to persuade the United Nations Security Council to reimpose pre-agreement sanctions on Iran for its breaches of the deal after the United States' withdrawal. The agreement provided for a resolution process among signatories in the event of a breach, but that process had not yet played out.[416]
Speaking about the U.S. desire to restore UN sanctions against Iran and extend an embargo to arms sales to it in 2020, U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Kelly Craft said: "History is replete of tragedies of appeasing regimes such as this one, that for decades have kept its own people under its thumb. The Trump administration has no fear in standing in limited company on this matter, in light of the unmistakable truth guiding our actions. I only regret that other members of this [Security Council] have lost their way, and now find themselves standing in the company of terrorists."[417] She also wrote a letter to the UN Security Council president on September 20, 2020, pressing her point on sanctions.[418][419][420] Speaking at the U.S. State Department in September 2020, she said: "As we have in the past, we will stand alone to protect peace and security at all times. We don't need a cheering section to validate our moral compass."[419]
After the Iranian regime's arrest of human rights activist Farhad Meysami, the U.S. State Department supported him in a statement.[421] Meysami then wrote a letter sharply criticizing Pompeo and the Trump administration, writing[k], "I would much rather spend all my life imprisoned by a group of my oppressive and ignorant compatriots and try to correct their wrongdoing through reformist action, than to spend a second submitting to the shame and disgrace of support from those who did not follow through with their obligations and withdrew from the rational and peaceful Iran Nuclear Deal (JCPOA) against all principles of morality and international law, and re-imposed inhumane sanctions which have thrown millions of my fellow Iranians into poverty".[423]
After Biden was elected president in 2020, he stated his intention to rejoin the Iran deal.[424] Naftali Bennett, who replaced Netanyahu as Israeli Prime Minister, advised against it, saying, "These very days illustrate what the world would look like if a radical Islamic regime acquired a nuclear weapon. That marriage would be a nuclear nightmare for the entire world. The first goal is to stop Iran on its regional aggression and start rolling them back into the box. And the second is to permanently keep Iran away from ever being able to break out the nuclear weapon."[425]
Reentry Negotiations (2021''2022) [ edit ] In early 2021, talks between the parties to the original agreement took place in Vienna. But due to the election of a new president in Iran, the meetings have been on hold since June. Enrique Mora, EU coordinator for reviving negotiations with Iran, attended the inauguration of the new Iranian president, Ebrahim Raisi, in Tehran in August. Iran is seeking assurances from the EU that there will be no repetition of the unilateral U.S. withdrawal. On 14 October 2021, Iran and the EU agreed to hold further negotiations in Brussels. Iranian deputy foreign minister Ali Bagheri reiterated Mora's statement that "the EU was ready to collaborate with Iran and the other parties". U.S. Secretary of State Antony Blinken told reporters that he hoped new talks succeed but stressed that "the runway that we have left to do is getting shorter and shorter".[426]
On 24 October 2021, Russia's ambassador at the United Nations International Atomic Energy Agency in Vienna, Mikhail Ulyanov, called Iran's demand that the U.S. not withdraw from the JCPOA again "logical and justifiable". President Joe Biden had previously refused to give Iran such assurances.[427] A joint statement by the leaders of France, Germany, the U.K., and the U.S. on October 30 welcomed "President Biden's clearly demonstrated commitment to return the U.S. to full compliance with the JCPOA and to stay in full compliance, so long as Iran does the same."[428] Talks resumed in Vienna on 29 November 2021, with representatives from Iran, China, France, Germany, Russia, and the U.K. present.[429]
At the start of the seventh round of negotiations, European, Russian, British, Chinese and Iranian negotiators expressed optimism about reviving the JCPOA. A European diplomat said that in June 2021, 70% to 80% of a draft deal had been agreed upon. Enrique Mora, the EU official chairing the talks, said he felt "extremely positive" about what he had seen.[430][431] Ali Bagheri, Iran's top nuclear negotiator, referred to everything discussed so far as merely a ''draft'' and presented Iran's own new draft.[432] After the seventh round, Western negotiators called Iran's new proposals "unacceptable" and saw little chance of a successful negotiation unless Iran changed its position. Iranian negotiators insisted that the U.S. first lift all sanctions before Iran would scale back its nuclear program, contradicting the previous understanding of "compliance for compliance."[433] On 9 December 2021, the negotiations to save the deal continued as Russia and China exerted diplomatic pressure on Iran to revise its stance. According to the Russian ambassador to the talks, Mikhail Ulyanov, "a number of misunderstandings that created some tension had been eliminated and everyone confirmed their commitment to productive work". The previous week's negotiations had stalled as Iran's draft proposal, demanding the removal of all sanctions, was unacceptable to European negotiators.[434]
On 20 February 2022, 250 members of the 290-member Iranian parliament, which has been controlled by conservatives and hardliners since 2020, issued a statement urging President Ebrahim Raisi to comply with their requirements in reviving the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA).[435]
In early March 2022, a senior official and spokesperson for the State Department said "the parties are close to a possible deal but a number of very difficult issues remain unsolved". The U.S. is engaged in indirect talks with Iran in Vienna, mediated by China, Russia and European parties of the original agreement. Revival of the JCPOA became a priority for the Biden administration when the war in Ukraine further affected global energy prices. About a million barrels of Iranian oil each day could be added to the international market, which would have a significant impact on crude oil prices and reduce the threat of nuclear war in the region.[436]
On 5 March 2022, Iran claimed it had reached an agreement with the IAEA to resolve all outstanding doubts about undeclared materials from three nuclear sites by late June. IAEA chief Rafael Grossi, who visited Iran in March, would present those findings concerning the enforcement of the agreement to the governing body by July. New demands by Russia to explicitly protect its economic relations with Iran have been identified as a potential stumbling block for the U.S. administration.[437]

The terms are interchangeable; this article uses the "P5+1" phrase.[6][7] ^ The meaning of Article IV of the Nuclear Non-proliferation Treaty, and its application to Iran, is a matter of dispute.[34][35] Gary Samore writes, "Whether the NPT guarantees signatories a right to enrichment is a long-standing dispute among the parties to the treaty."[36] Iran and other countries (such as Argentina, Brazil, Germany, Japan, and South Africa) assert that signatories to the NPT have a right to enrich uranium under Article IV of the NPT.[37][38] Professor William O. Beeman of the University of Minnesota, as well as Henry D. Sokolski, executive director of the Nonproliferation Policy Education Center, agree with this interpretation of the NPT.[37] The U.S. position was unclear before 2006, but after that time the U.S. has taken the position that Iran does not have the right to uranium enrichment because this activity is not specifically cited in the NPT.[35][37] In testimony before the Senate Foreign Relations Committee in October 2013, Sherman stated, "the U.S. position that that article IV of the Nuclear Nonproliferation Treaty does not speak about the right of enrichment at all [and] doesn't speak to enrichment, period. It simply says that you have the right to research and development. And many countries such as Japan and Germany have taken that [uranium enrichment] to be a right. But the United States does not take that position. ... We do not believe there is an inherent right by anyone to enrichment."[37] The U.S. officials has also made the additional argument that whatever Iran's rights under the NPT might be, they were superseded by a series of UN Security Council resolutions demanding "that Iran suspend enrichment and reprocessing activities until 'confidence is restored in the purely peaceful nature of Iran's nuclear program.'"[35][36][37] U.S. Secretary of State Kerry has said: "We do not recognize a right to enrich. It is clear ... in the nonproliferation treaty, it's very, very (clear) that there is no right to enrich. [The Iranians] have the ability to negotiate it, but they could only gain that capacity to have some enrichment as some countries do, if they live up to the whole set of terms necessary to prove its (sic) a peaceful program."[34] In March 2011 testimony before the House Foreign Affairs Committee, then-U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton expressed a similar position, indicating that Iran should be permitted to enrich uranium under IAEA supervision once the international concerns over its nuclear program are resolved.[38] ^ At the same time that the JCPOA was agreed to, Iran and the IAEA signed a separate document, the Roadmap for Clarification of Past and Present Outstanding Issues.[85] The roadmap includes "the provision by Iran of explanations regarding outstanding issues" and provides "for technical expert meetings, technical measures and discussions, as well as a separate arrangement regarding the issue of Parchin", an Iranian military research and development site.[85] "The specific measures that Iran is committed to take with respect to technical expert meetings and discussions and access to Parchin are contained in two separate documents between Iran and the IAEA that are not public."[85]On 19 August 2015, the Associated Press reported that an anonymous official had given the AP an unsigned, preliminary draft of one of the confidential bilateral IAEA-Iran agreements. This draft indicated that Iran would be allowed to use its own inspectors to investigate the Parchin site.[86] (The AP reported that two anonymous officials had told it that the draft does not differ from the final, confidential agreement between the IAEA and Iran).[87] The AP said that the draft "diverges from normal procedures".[86] Several hours after posting the article, the AP removed several details of the story (without issuing a formal retraction), and published another article that noted, "IAEA staff will monitor Iranian personnel as they inspect the Parchin nuclear site."[88] The AP restored the contentious details the next morning and said it was standing by its entire story. It further published the full document it had transcribed.[89]The following day, IAEA Director-General Yukiya Amano issued a statement stating: "I am disturbed by statements suggesting that the IAEA has given responsibility for nuclear inspections to Iran. Such statements misrepresent the way in which we will undertake this important verification work ... the arrangements are technically sound and consistent with our long-established practices. They do not compromise our safeguards standards in any way. The Road-map between Iran and the IAEA is a very robust agreement, with strict timelines, which will help us to clarify past and present outstanding issues regarding Iran's nuclear programme."[90] The IAEA did not elaborate on the provisions of the confidential agreement, but the Arms Control Association has noted, "under managed access procedures that may be employed the IAEA, the inspected party may take environmental swipe samples at a particular site in the presence of the IAEA inspectors using swabs and containment bags provided by the IAEA to prevent cross contamination. According to former IAEA officials, this is an established procedure. Such swipe samples collected at suspect sites under managed access would likely be divided into six packages: three are taken by the IAEA for analysis at its Seibersdorf Analytical Lab and two to be sent to the IAEA's Network of Analytical Labs (NWAL), which comprises some 16 labs in different countries, and another package to be kept under joint IAEA and Iran seal at the IAEA office in Iran a backup and control sample if re-analysis might be required at a later stage. The process ensures the integrity of the inspection operation and the samples for all parties."[91] Mark Hibbs of the Nuclear Policy Program at the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace and Thomas Shea, a former IAEA safeguards official and head of Defense Nuclear Nonproliferation Programs at the Pacific Northwest National Laboratory described a similar protocol in an article titled "No, Iran is not allowed to inspect itself."[92] Hibbs and Shea wrote that the claims that Iran would be in charge of inspections at Parchin were "wholly specious" and "unfounded".[92]Arms control expert Jeffrey Lewis of the Monterey Institute of International Studies stated that the procedures referred to in the AP report were consistent with expert practice: "There are precedents for just providing photos and videos. When the South Africans disabled their nuclear test shaft, they video-recorded it and sent the IAEA their video. I don't care who takes a swipe sample or who takes a photograph, so long as I know where and when it was taken, with very high confidence, and I know that it hasn't been tampered with."[88] Lewis expressed the opinion that "the point of the leak was to make the IAEA agreement on Parchin sound as bad as possible, and to generate political attention in Washington."[88] On 21 September 2015, both the Associated Press and Reuters noted that under the arrangement between Iran and the IAEA, Iranian technicians, instead of the IAEA's experts, would take environmental samples. Reuters also reported that a spokesman for Iran's atomic energy agency said Iranian nuclear experts have "taken environmental samples from Parchin without U.N. inspectors present".[93][94] ^ Ali Vaez, the senior analyst on Iran at the International Crisis Group, notes that breakout time is not precisely measurable and is "estimated rather than calculated", depending on various assumptions and factors. Vaez notes, "Breakout estimates ... usually assume that an Iranian dash for the bomb would face none of the technical challenges that have plagued the program over the past decade."[104] ^ The extent to which the JCPOA is legally binding on the United States'--i.e., whether a future president could lawfully repudiate the JCPOA once it goes into effect'--is a matter of dispute. Legal scholars Bruce Ackerman of Yale Law School and David Golove of the New York University School of Law argue that the Iran Nuclear Agreement Review Act of 2015 had the effect of making the agreement (once implemented) into a congressional-executive agreement.[158] Golove states that the president cannot "ignore commitments [made by him or by a past president] in congressional-executive agreements without congressional authority to do so", and believes that the agreement is binding under international law, irrespective of any White House declaration, because it contains no provision saying otherwise.[158][159] Ackerman agrees, arguing, "Presidents do not have the power to repudiate congressional-executive agreements without strictly following the procedures laid out by Congress in its original authorizing legislation."[158] Others, such as Michael Ramsey of the University of San Diego School of Law, argue that unless Congress expressly approves of the agreement via a resolution of approval (which is unlikely), the agreement is nonbinding under domestic law, so that "this president can implement to the extent of his statutory and constitutional authority [and] future presidents can refuse to follow."[158] Ramsey points out, however, that even if the agreement is a nonbinding executive agreement under domestic law, it may still be binding under international law, since domestic invalidity is not a defense to failure to follow an international agreement.[158]The position of the U.S. government is different. Secretary of State Kerry stated in a Senate Foreign Relations Committee hearing, "with respect to the talks, we've been clear from the beginning. We're not negotiating a, quote, 'legally binding plan.' We're negotiating a plan that will have in it a capacity for enforcement."[160] (Kerry also said that a future president is, as a practical matter, unlikely to "turn around and just nullify it" given the international agreement from the other P5+1 powers.[161]) Several legal scholars support this argument. John B. Bellinger III argues: "The next president will have the legal right under both domestic and international law to scrap the JCPOA and reimpose U.S. nuclear sanctions on Iran."[162] Bellinger states that "such an action would be inconsistent with political commitments made by the Obama administration and would likely cause a major rift with U.S. allies and Iran to resume its nuclear activities," but that "would not constitute a violation of international law, because the JCPOA is not legally binding".[162] Orde Kittrie of Arizona State University similarly writes that the JCPOA is a kind of "nonbinding, unsigned political" agreement considered "more flexible than treaties or other legally binding international agreements".[163] ^ The "vast majority of international agreements" negotiated by the United States, especially in recent decades, have been executive agreements, rather than treaties.[170][172] In 2003, the U.S. Supreme Court held in American Insurance Association v. Garamendi, "our cases have recognized that the President has authority to make 'executive agreements' with other countries, requiring no ratification by the Senate or approval by Congress, this power having been exercised since the early years of the Republic."[171][173] Various opponents of the JCPOA, including David B. Rivkin Jr., Lee A. Casey, and Michael Ramsey have criticized the form of the agreement, arguing that it should be considered a treaty rather than an executive agreement.[174][175] Other commentators disagree; the constitutionality of the executive agreement form of the JCPOA has been defended by Jack Goldsmith, who called arguments for the illegality of the agreement "weak",[176] and by John Yoo, who wrote that the executive agreement form of the JCPOA is consistent with the Treaty Clause of the Constitution.[177] ^ The Iran Nuclear Agreement Review Act of 2015, Pub.L. 114''17, was an amendment to the Atomic Energy Act of 1954.[178] ^ "Much of the criticism of the deal" from opponents in the U.S. Congress and from the Israeli government "derives from the fact that slowing and shrinking Iran's nuclear program this way falls well short of the original diplomatic goal, which was to end entirely Iran's ability to enrich uranium'--the 'zero enrichment' goal".[304] Before the JCPOA, there was "a preference on the part of the United States and many of its allies for zero enrichment in Iran (indeed, opposition to the spread of any uranium enrichment capability to any additional countries has been long-standing U.S. policy and an important nonproliferation principle)", although "the potential to discuss with Iran the conditions under which it could continue enrichment is not new" and was "built into the proposals that the P5+1 have offered Iran since 2006, spanning the George W. Bush and Barack Obama administrations".[305]Some commentators, such as Michael Singh of the Washington Institute for Near East Policy (writing in 2013), argued for a "zero enrichment" approach: i.e., that no agreement contemplating any enrichment by Iran should be made.[306] This was also the position of Senator Bob Menendez of New Jersey, who introduced the Nuclear Weapons Free Iran Act, a proposed bill (not enacted) which would require that Iran reduce its uranium enrichment to zero before an agreement is made.[307]Other commentators have said that "zero enrichment" has long been an implausible goal, including R. Nicholas Burns of Harvard's Belfer Center, the Under Secretary of State for Political Affairs and leading figure on Iranian nuclear matters during the second Bush administration, said that this was implausible given that Iran has 19,000 centrifuges, stating: "If I could get an ideal solution, or you could, where the Iranians submitted to every demand we had, I would take that. In a real world, you have to make real-world decisions."[304] Similarly, Michael A. Levi of the Maurice R. Greenberg Center for Geoeconomic Studies at the Council on Foreign Relations argued in the August''September 2011 edition of the journal Survival, "it is far from clear that zero enrichment is a realistic goal" and stated, "the goal of current U.S. policy, even if it is not typically articulated this way", is "limited enrichment, in which Iran has some non-trivial enrichment capability, but is unable to produce a bomb (or small arsenal) without risking strong international retaliation, including military destruction of its enrichment infrastructure".[308] Similar arguments have been advanced by Mark Jansson, adjunct fellow at the Federation of American Scientists (who wrote in October 2013 in The National Interest, "there is nothing clear-eyed or realistic about the demand for zero enrichment" and "nor is it technically necessary" to prevent proliferation)[309] and George Perkovich, director of the Nonproliferation Program at the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace (who argued in January 2014 in Foreign Affairs, "the complete elimination of Iran's nuclear fuel cycle program" is not "an achievable goal" and what is needed is "not the cessation of Iran's nuclear enrichment but its capacity to create a nuclear weapon quickly").[310] ^ Scholars differ on whether a "better deal" from the American point of view is realistic. Stephen M. Walt of Harvard, writing an article titled "The Myth of the Better Deal" in Foreign Policy magazine, argued that the idea of an achievable better deal is "magical thinking" that is at odds with the facts and "ignores Diplomacy 101".[313] Albert Carnesale of Harvard's Belfer Center wrote, "there is no real alternative that would serve the interests of the United States and our allies and friends as well as the deal that is now before Congress. A 'better deal' is unachievable; a military solution is unrealistic (and probably would be counterproductive); and an international agreement without U.S. participation is less attractive than an agreement in which the United States has a strong voice in resolving of issues that might arise."[314] Conversely, Robert Satloff of the Washington Institute for Near East Policy argues, "a better deal with Iran is possible," and that congressional rejection of the agreement would not immediately result in the collapse of the JCPOA or military action,[315] and law professor Orde Kittrie of Arizona State University argued that Congress could send the JCPOA back for renegotiation.[163] ^ A similar resolution of disapproval was introduced on 16 July by Representative Peter Roskam, Republican of Illinois, who announced on 3 August that he had obtained 218 cosponsors (a majority of the House).[326][339][340] But Roskam's resolution "is not the formal disapproval measure that the House is expected to take up in September";[326] and it was expected that it is the resolution by Royce, as the relevant committee chair, will be the one ultimately voted upon.[339] Ultimately, neither resolution was voted upon.[341] ^ Translation prepared by Parsa Albeheshti.[422] References [ edit ] ^ "EU officially announces October 18 adoption day of JCPOA".

How One Ukrainian Billionaire Funded Hunter Biden, President Volodymyr Zelensky, And The Neo-Nazi Azov Battalion
Sun, 13 Mar 2022 15:09
Kolomoysky Owns Burisma HoldingsThe real person who was the benefactor to, and the boss of, Vice President Joe Biden's son, Hunter Biden, at the Ukrainian gas company Burisma Holdings, was not the CEO of Burisma Holdings, Mykola Zlochevsky, but it was instead Ihor Kolomoysky, who was part of the newly installed Ukrainian Government, which the Obama Administration itself had actually just installed in Ukraine, in what the head of the ''private CIA'' firm Stratfor correctly called ''the most blatant coup in history.''
Shortly after the Obama Administration's Ukrainian coup, on March 2, 2014, Kolomoysky, who supported Yanukovych's overthrow, was appointed the governor of Dnepropetrovsk, Ukraine. Hunter Biden, with no experience in the industry or region, would join Kolomoysky's Burisma Holdings two months later on May 12, 2014.
A 2012 study of Burisma Holdings done in Ukraine by the AntiCorruption Action Centre (ANTAC), an investigative nonprofit co-funded by American billionaire George Soros and the U.S. State Department, found that the true owner of Burisma Holdings was none other than Ukrainian billionaire-oligarch Ihor Kolomoysky.
The study, which was funded to dig up corruption on the Ukrainian President Viktor Yanukovych, instead found that Ihor Kolomoysky ''managed to seize the largest reserves of natural gas in Ukraine''.
Burisma Holdings changed owners in 2011 when it was taken over by an off-shore Cyprus enterprise called Brociti Investments Ltd, and subsequently, moved addresses under the same roof as Ukrnaftoburinnya and Esko-Pivnich, two Ukrainian gas companies which happened to be also owned by Kolomoysky through off-shore entities in the British Virgin Islands.
Oleh Kanivets, who worked as CEO of Ukrnaftoburinnya, confirmed Kolomoysky as the owner of Burisma Holding in the 2012 report saying, ''The Privat Group is the immediate owner. This company was founded by Mykola Zlochevsky some time ago, but he later sold his shares to the Privat Group.''
In other words, Hunter Biden's boss and benefactor at Burisma Holdings is the same Ukrainian billionaire-oligarch who also claimed the position of boss and benefactor over Volodymyr Zelensky before he became Ukraine's president.
Kolomoysky Owns 1+1 Media GroupKolmoysky, who currently holds a net worth of $1.8 billion making him the 1750th richest person in the world, owns holdings in metal, petroleum, and the media sector, where he has had a long history with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky.
For years, Zelensky's company produced shows for Kolmoysky's TV network, 1+1 Media Group, one of the largest media conglomerates in Ukraine. Zelensky achieved national fame portraying a president on a hit television sitcom called, Servant of the People, which was broadcasted on a channel owned by Kolmoysky.
In 2019, Kolmoysky's media channels gave a big boost to Zelensky's presidential campaign, while Kolmoysky even provided security, lawyers, and vehicles for Zelensky during his campaign. Kolmoysky's bodyguard and lawyer accompanied Zelensky on the campaign trail as Zelensky was chauffeured around in a Range Rover owned by one of Kolmoysky's companies.
The Pandora Papers showed that Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky and his TV production partners were beneficiaries of a web of offshore firms created in 2012, the same year Zelensky's production company entered into a deal with Kolomoysky's media group, which allegedly received $41 million in funds from Kolomoysky's Privatbank.
Zelensky's political rival, President Petro Poroshenko commented on their connection during the campaign trail, ''Fate intended to put me together with Kolomoyskiy's puppet in the second round of the elections.''
After Zelensky's victory, Kolomoysky, who had spent the last few years living between Israel and Switzerland, returned to Ukraine to keep up his relationship with the new president, nominating over 30-lawmakers to Zelensky's newly established party and maintaining influence with many of them in parliament.
Kolomoysky Funds The Azov, Aidar, and Dnipro BattalionsIgor Kolomoysky has been a top funder of the Azov Battalion since it was formed in 2014. He has also bankrolled private militias like the Dnipro and Aidar Battalions and has personally deployed them to protect his financial interests.
Before becoming part of Ukraine's armed forces, who funded Azov? The unit received backing from Ukraine's interior minister in 2014, as the government had recognised its own military was too weak to fight off the pro-Russian separatists and relied on paramilitary volunteer forces.
These forces were privately funded by oligarchs''the most known being Igor Kolomoisky, an energy magnate billionaire and then-governor of the Dnipropetrovska region.
Groups of right-wing Ukrainian nationalists are committing war crimes in the rebel-held territories of Eastern Ukraine, according to a report from Amnesty International, as evidence emerged in local media of the volunteer militias beheading their victims.
Armed volunteers who refer to themselves as the Aidar battalion "have been involved in widespread abuses, including abductions, unlawful detention, ill-treatment, theft, extortion, and possible executions", Amnesty said'...
The Aidar battalion is publicly backed by Ukrainian oligarch Ihor Kolomoyskyi, who also allegedly funds the Azov, Donbas, Dnepr 1, Dnepr 2 volunteer battalions, operating under orders from Kiev.
Some of Ukraine's private battalions have blackened the country's international reputation with their extremist views. The Azov battalion, partially funded by Taruta and Kolomoisky, uses the Nazi Wolfsangel symbol as its logo, and many of its members openly espouse neo-Nazi, anti-Semitic views. The battalion members have spoken about ''bringing the war to Kiev,'' and said that Ukraine needs ''a strong dictator to come to power who could shed plenty of blood but unite the nation in the process.''
Kolomoysky's Battalions Shell Civilians In Donbas The Luhansk and Donetsk regions comprise a larger region known together as Donbas. In May 2014, shortly after the Obama administration's Maidan-coup, the two regions held a referendum on seceding from Ukraine, in which 96% of Lukansk and 89% of Donetsk voted for the creation of two new independent entities in eastern Ukraine.
Moscow said the vote reflected the "will of the people," but the European Union called the elections "illegal and illegitimate", which quickly turned violent and descended into an all-out conflict between Russian-backed separatist forces and the Ukrainian military and pro-government militias.
Donbas became the epicenter of a battle for global influence between NATO and Moscow in which the homes, schools, and offices of innocent civilians were simply collateral damage, and water, electricity, and gas were regularly shut off for the residents who paid the ultimate price.
The War in Donbas has continued to this day killing an estimated 14,000 while tearing eastern Ukraine's Donbas region into shreds.
Human Rights Watch reported on July 24, 2014, that Ukrainian government forces and pro-government militias had indiscriminately used unguided Grad rockets in populated areas, which violated international humanitarian law, the laws of war, and constituted war crimes.
While the Ukrainian government officials denied using Grad rockets in Donetsk, a Human Rights Watch investigation on the ground strongly indicated that Ukrainian government forces were responsible for the attacks and earlier in the month, Al Jazeera journalist had even filmed Ukrainian forces with Grad rocket launchers on the road to Donetsk.
While Kolomoysky's Azov battalion led the post-coup government's assault on the self-declared republics of Luhansk and Donetsk, a 2014 Amnesty International report accused Kolomoysky's Aidar Battalion of war crimes in Donbas specifically citing, ''widespread abuses, including abductions, unlawful detention, ill-treatment, theft, extortion, and possible executions".
In October 2014, Human Rights Watch reported that Ukrainian government forces and pro-government militias were responsible for the widespread use of cluster munitions in populated areas in Donetsk city.
''It is shocking to see a weapon that most countries have banned used so extensively in eastern Ukraine,'' said Mark Hiznay, senior arms researcher at Human Rights Watch. ''Ukrainian authorities should make an immediate commitment not to use cluster munitions and join the treaty to ban them.''
This is not to say that both sides were not guilty of war crimes as Russian-backed separatists were also accused of using unguided rockets, shooting down civilian planes, and both sides have been accused of numerous war crimes.
The Minsk II agreement in 2015 ended the worst fighting and set up a buffer zone around the breakaway republics, but the deadly civil war has continued to drag on in the region until this day. Heavy weapons were banned by the Minsk agreements but were still frequently used, and to devastating effect.
Children's schools in Donetsk have been hit so many times by indiscriminate shelling that basements are set up as make-shift bomb shelters and windows are piled high with sandbags. Donbas has also become one of the most landmine contaminated places on earth putting more than 220,000 children at risk.
''The shelling doesn't leave a child's psyche unscathed. Children are traumatized. They are terrified. There are children who become very emotional. They pour their feelings out,'' said Iryna Morhun, the Principal of Krasnohorivka School, which was hit by a direct strike.
''On the other side, there are children who keep this pain inside. It's very sad to see children who should be having a happy childhood suffer because of this war.''
Hunter Biden's Laptop Talks About ''Children Burned Alive'' In DonetskThe nonprofit research group, Marco Polo, which is doing a comprehensive report on Hunter Biden's Laptop, made the connection between Hunter Biden's text messages and Kolomoysky's massacres in eastern Ukraine.
Text messages found on Hunter Biden's laptop, show Hunter Biden asking Hallie Biden, his brother's widow and his mistress, if she believed that he had ''children burned alive in DONETSK'' or ''children killed in donetsk, Ukraine''.
Most likely, in reference to Kolomoysky, his reported Burisma Holdings boss, who was also funding the neo-Nazi Azov Battalion that was accused of war crimes and the shelling of civilians in eastern Ukraine.
In 2018, Congress banned U.S. arms from going to the Ukrainian Azov Battalion which used neo-Nazi insignia, openly accepted neo-Nazis into its ranks, and had been accused of 'ISIS-Style' War Crimes including beheadings.
''White supremacy and neo-Nazism are unacceptable and have no place in our world,'' Rep. Ro Khanna (D-Calif.), an outspoken critic of providing lethal aid to Ukraine, said in a statement to The Hill on Tuesday. ''I am very pleased that the recently passed omnibus prevents the U.S. from providing arms and training assistance to the neo-Nazi Azov Battalion fighting in Ukraine.''
Text messages between Hunter Biden and Hallie Biden.In 2016, Kolomoysky's Privatbank collapsed amid accusations of embezzlement and fraud. The bank failure cost the Ukrainian government '-- and by extension the American and European taxpayers who propped it up with aid funds '-- about $5.5 billion in a bailout.
In 2020, the Justice Department moved to seize Kolomoysky's U.S. properties after accusing the oligarch of embezzling and defrauding billions of dollars from PrivatBank and laundering it into American properties, including a steel plant in Kentucky, a commercial high rise in Cleveland, and a Motorola manufacturing plant in Illinois.
In March 2021, the Biden administration barred Kolomoisky and members of his family from traveling to the United States because of ''involvement in significant acts of corruption.''
It is highly unlikely Kolomoisky would have returned to the United States considering the Justice Department had already begun seizing his properties the year before and he had reportedly been traveling between Switzerland, Israel, and Ukraine in fear of being extradited to the United States.
As I am writing this, the U.S. Congress is approving another $14 billion in aid for Ukraine that will undoubtedly be funneled into the family members of corrupt U.S. and Ukrainian politician's bank accounts and oligarch's off-shore financial entities before making its way to the neo-Nazi battalions congress banned from receiving U.S. arms in 2018.
Do the people pushing so hard for war with Russia know about the ''children burned alive'' in Donetsk? Do they know that we are arming neo-Nazi battalions who have been shooting rockets and dropping cluster bombs on children in Donbas for the last 8-years?

Norah O'Donnell's attitude under fire at CBS 'Evening News'
Sun, 13 Mar 2022 14:59
''CBS Evening News'' anchor Norah O'Donnell is in third place in the ratings, but sources at the network gripe that she's got a first-class attitude '-- even as she faces getting sidelined by her sharp-elbowed, bean-counting boss.
CBS News co-president Neeraj Khemlani '-- who has been slashing costs in a bid to make the network profitable '-- is eyeing O'Donnell, who reportedly makes between $6 million and $8 million a year, and whose contract is set to expire this spring, sources told The Post.
''The next big decision from him is revamping the 'Evening News,''' said a CBS insider, who explained that the network can find a cheaper alternative to be last in the ratings.
''It's not a money maker,'' a second source said, adding that O'Donnell's ''toxic behavior'' is weighing the show down.
Speculation that her days are numbered has surged since the onset of the Russia-Ukraine war. O'Donnell is the only evening TV news anchor who isn't in Eastern Europe, which has taken a toll on ratings.
Norah O'Donnell's newsroom antics are irking the rank and file at the ''CBS Evening News'' as the anchor's job is on the line. Michele CroweFor the week of Feb. 28, CBS' total viewers sank to less than 5.1 million, trailing NBC's 7.4 million and ABC's 8.8 million, Nielsen said. Prior to the war, O'Donnell was reaching around 5.6 million to 5.3 million viewers a night.
''David Muir, Lester Holt and Anderson Cooper are all in Ukraine. Where's Norah? We are in the middle of a war and she's reporting from Washington, DC,'' said a source. ''Either she didn't want to go or leadership didn't want her to go. It's bad either way.''
Meanwhile, ''CBS Mornings'' anchor Tony Dokoupil, rumored as a possible successor to O'Donnell, has been reporting from Poland and appearing on her show nightly. Sources said O'Donnell is finally being sent to Poland this weekend and will report from there on Monday, but some insiders say ''it's too late.''
O'Donnell's antics at ''CBS Evening News'' have angered staffers at the network, who are pushing for the anchor to be replaced. CBS Photo ArchiveThe 48-year-old anchor's ''The Devil Wears Prada'' routine includes a full ''dress rehearsal'' of the ''Evening News'' half an hour before the show airs '-- an often tense ritual that has seen O'Donnell chewing out dressing room stylists over her hair and makeup, sources said.
''There was an incident last year in the studio where she ranted about how her bronzer was wrong,'' one insider said, noting that her hair and makeup staff take the brunt of her tantrums and have been known to end up in tears.
''We are in the middle of a pandemic and people are dying.''
''CBS Mornings'' anchor Tony Dokoupil has been rumored as a potential replacement for O'Donnell. CBS News''She's a news actress,'' another insider said, noting that the dress rehearsals are ''very unusual'' for news broadcasts '-- especially for an anchor who's three years into a job. A third added that the show's producers use the quirky routine as a way to coach the ''robotic'' O'Donnell and ''make her look more human,'' by critiquing how she delivers the news and reads from the teleprompter.
Some of O'Donnell's staffers in DC won't miss her while she's gone. Insiders said O'Donnell has a $65,000-a-year wardrobe allowance and she is particular about which designers she wears.
''It's a clothing allowance, every news anchor has one. That figure is incorrect,'' O'Donnell's publicist Cindi Berger said, declining to provide a specific number.
''NBC Nightly News'' anchor Lester Holt was one of many journalists who have been reporting from Ukraine. O'Donnell's absence from Eastern Europe until this point has raised eyebrows at the network. Twitter/@LesterHoltNBCRecently, O'Donnell posted a photo of herself on Instagram sporting a black Oscar de la Renta bow-belt fitted wool jacket that retails for $2,700 at Nordstrom at a time when CBS News is going through major cuts, sources said.
O'Donnell's daily demands also include having her Gucci slides waiting in front of her dressing room door so she can put them on as soon as she is off the set.
''I am vehemently refuting these outrageous and sexist claims!'' Berger emailed in response to questions about her client's wardrobe and treatment of staff.
''It's offensive that female anchors and reporters get this type of sexist treatment,'' Khemlani said in an email statement late Friday. ''We support Norah and the Evening News team and the quality journalism they deliver each and every night.''
A photo from O'Donnell's Instagram of the anchor wearing a pricey Oscar de la Renta top.The dress rehearsals have likewise rankled the network's journalists, who claim that O'Donnell uses them to exert outsize control over broadcasts, scrapping segments at the last minute as she fusses over her appearance.
A news anchor typically might go over a few segments or scripts, but O'Donnell requires everyone from the producers, reporters and editors to run through the entire program. Not only does that mean the segments must be finished early and are thus not as polished, but it also gives O'Donnell the chance to tear up the segments.
''The rehearsals are an excuse to blow up packages 15 minutes before the show,'' one source griped. ''She changes the words to segments. Everyone has a stroke.''
CNN's Anderson Cooper interrupted his paternity leave recently to head to Ukraine to cover the war. CNN ABC's David Muir, who has been in Ukraine for weeks, is the top-rated evening news anchor on TV. Lorenzo BevilaquaNow, insiders say O'Donnell is facing heat from Khemlani, who was hired last year to revamp the organization. As previously reported by The Post, Khemlani's gruff, exacting management style has ruffled feathers at CBS, leading to the departure of a slew of well-respected execs and journalists, including London Bureau Chief Andy Clarke, who left amid a spat over the cost of extracting Afghan journalists and fixers who worked for CBS.
The exec and O'Donnell began bumping heads last year when The Post first reported that CBS has been quietly searching for O'Donnell's replacement ahead of her contract expiring this spring.
At the time, Khemlani denied a potential move or anchor shakeup, telling The Post: ''There are no plans to move the Evening News from Washington. Norah's presence in Washington has elevated the CBS Evening News' coverage on all fronts '-- politics, breaking news, to big interviews including Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen just last week. Her reporting on the military and domestic abuse has won awards and changed policies in Washington. And in addition to making headlines, the program is gaining audience share.''
CBS News co-president Neeraj Khemlani has been searching for O'Donnell's replacement, and was turned down by former MSNBC anchor Brian Williams.Tensions further escalated in January when CNN reported that Khemlani approached former MSNBC anchor Brian Williams at least twice about the gig. O'Donnell's camp was ''shaken'' and ''very angered'' by the reports, a person with knowledge said.
''They feel like Neeraj is devaluing Norah and the credibility of the network,'' the source said.
Some people inside CBS believe that reports about Khemlani shopping for a new anchor could be a clever tactic to get O'Donnell to take a massive pay cut. But the consequence of that is that CBS looks ''stupid'' if they re-sign the anchor after trying to replace her, one source noted.
O'Donnell's on-air designer wardrobe has ruffled feathers at CBS News, which is being reorganized by Khemlani. Kristina BumphreyWhen asked publicly about O'Donnell's job security, Khemlani told Deadline in January that CBS has ''no current plans to change'' what it is doing, but sources doubted the exec's words.
''I don't know if Neeraj can make the final decision but he's going to bring [ratings] data to George Cheeks and Bob Bakish,'' the source said, referring to the CEOs of CBS and its parent Paramount Global. ''Norah's contract is up in May. There's time.''

EU abstains from UN vote on 'Nazism' '' POLITICO
Sun, 13 Mar 2022 14:56
The European Union's member states have abstained en masse from a United Nations resolution against the 'glorification of Nazism'.
In all, 155 countries backed the motion, which was presented by Russia on Friday (21 November) under the title ''Glorification of Nazism: inadmissibility of certain practices that contribute to fuelling contemporary forms of racism, racial discrimination, xenophobia and related intolerance''.
Three countries voted on Friday against the Russian resolution: Ukraine, Canada and the United States.
Speaking to European Voice before the vote, Lithuania's foreign minister, Linas Linkevičius, said that ''no one should doubt that we are condemning fascism'', but, he continued, ''under cover of this condemnation, Russia is pursuing its own agenda''.
''De facto, Russia is trying to attack the Baltic states and to determine history in its own way,'' he said.
In 1940, the Soviet Union, whose legal successor is Russia, invaded the three Baltic states '' Lithuania, Latvia and Estonia '' and occupied them for more than four decades.
In early November, Russia's president, Vladimir Putin, defended the Soviet Union's partition of Poland with Nazi Germany in 1939 under the terms of the Molotov-Ribbentrop pact. ''Serious research has shown that such methods were part of foreign policy at that time,'' he said. ''The Soviet Union signed a non-aggression pact with Germany'... What is wrong here if the Soviet Union did not wish to fight? What is wrong with this?''
Linkevičius said that it was ''insulting'' that a country ''that is conducting aggression against neighbouring states, in a brutal way'' '' a reference to Russia's invasion of Georgia in 2008, its annexation of the Ukrainian peninsula of Crimea in March and its continued support for separatists in eastern Ukraine '' could put forward this resolution.
Russia's foreign ministry said that the 'No' votes by the US, Canada and Ukraine were ''extremely regrettable'', adding that ''Ukraine's position is particularly dispiriting and alarming''.
''One can hardly understand how a country, the people of which suffered their full share of the horrors of Nazism and contributed significantly to our common victory against it, can vote against a resolution condemning its glorification,'' the Russian foreign ministry said.
The EU's decision to abstain from the vote was also maintained by Cyprus and Greece, EU states with traditionally close ties to Russia. Most would-be members of the EU also abstained, including Albania, Iceland, Montenegro and Macedonia.
Serbia and Turkey, both of which are seeking EU membership or have started accession talks, voted with Russia.
The UN vote was discussed by EU foreign ministers last Monday (17 November) at a meeting that saw a number of ministers push for efforts at the EU level to counter what is seen as a long-term campaign by Russia to use propaganda to retain influence over countries in the EU's and Russia's shared neighbourhoods.
''If we care about the littering of the oceans, let's also care about the littering of minds,'' Linkevičius said, noting that Russia's ''misleading messages, lies and tricks'' have been ''really very, very efficient''.
The Uyghur Forced Labor Prevention Act Goes Into Effect in the United States - Gibson Dunn
Sun, 13 Mar 2022 14:54
January 14, 2022
Click for PDF
On December 23, 2021, President Biden signed the Uyghur Forced Labor Prevention Act (the ''UFLPA'' or ''Act'') into law.[1] The UFLPA, which received widespread bipartisan support in Congress, is the latest in a line of U.S. efforts to address the plight of Uyghurs and other persecuted minority groups in China's Xinjiang Uyghur Autonomous Region (the ''XUAR'').
A key feature of the Act is the creation of a rebuttable presumption that all goods manufactured even partially in the XUAR are the product of forced labor and therefore not entitled to entry at U.S. ports. The Act also builds on prior legislation, such as 2020's Uyghur Human Rights Policy Act,[2] by expanding that Act's authorization of sanctions to cover foreign individuals responsible for human rights abuses related to forced labor.
I. Background
In recent years, both the executive and legislative branches have demonstrated an increased interest in ''lead[ing] the international community in ending forced labor practices wherever such practices occur,''[3] with a particular focus on the XUAR.
2020 saw a boom in efforts across agencies and the houses of Congress, beginning with the Department of Homeland Security's January publication of a Department-wide strategy to combat forced labor in supply chains.[4] Later that year, DHS joined the U.S. Departments of State, Treasury and Commerce to issue a joint advisory warning of heightened risks of forced labor for businesses with supply chain exposure to the XUAR.[5]
The U.S. also emphasized eliminating forced labor in supply chains through its international obligations at this time. The 2020 United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement (''USMCA'') required each party to this free trade agreement to ''prohibit the importation of goods into its territory from other sources produced in whole or in part by forced or compulsory labor.''[6] To carry out this obligation, President Trump issued an executive order in May 2020 establishing the Forced Labor Enforcement Task Force (''FLETF''), chaired by the Secretary of Homeland Security and including representatives from the Departments of State, Treasury, Justice, Labor, and the Office of the U.S. Trade Representative.[7] The implementing bill of the USMCA requires the FLETF to serve as the central hub for the U.S. government's enforcement of the prohibition on imports made through forced labor.[8]
In Congress, Rep. James McGovern (D) and Sen. Marco Rubio (R) '-- co-chairs of the Congressional-Executive Commission on China '-- introduced the first versions of the UFLPA in the House of Representatives[9] and the Senate[10] in March 2020. The bill received unusual, wide bipartisan support, with co-sponsors among Congress's most conservative and most liberal members.[11] Each bill passed in its respective house in early 2021, and a compromise bill '-- reconciling differences of timing and reporting processes between the two versions '-- was sent to the President in mid-December[12] before being signed into law.
II. Presumptive Ban on Imports from the XUAR
The UFLPA's trade provisions are notable both for their expansive scope and the heightened evidentiary standard required to rebut the Act's presumptive prohibition on all imports from the XUAR.
a. Scope of the Import BanThe UFLPA's scope is broad, instructing U.S. Customs and Border Protection (''CBP'') to presume that ''any goods, wares, articles, and merchandise mined, produced, or manufactured wholly or in part in'' the XUAR were made with forced labor and are therefore unfit for entry at any U.S. ports.[13]
This presumption extends also to goods, wares, articles, and merchandise produced by a variety of entities identified by the FLETF in its strategy to implement the Act. This includes entities that work with the XUAR government to recruit, transport, or receive forced labor from the XUAR,[14] as well as entities that participate in ''poverty alleviation'' and ''pairing-assistance'' programs[15] in the XUAR.[16]
CBP has traditionally had the authority to prevent the importation of ''[a]ll goods, wares, articles, and merchandise mined, produced, or manufactured wholly or in part in any foreign country by . . . forced labor'' through the issuance of Withhold Release Orders (''WROs'').[17] The UFLPA broadens this power by creating a rebuttable presumption that all articles produced in whole or in part in the XUAR or by entities that source material from persons involved in XUAR government forced labor schemes are automatically barred from entry into the United States, even absent a WRO or any specific showing of forced labor in the supply chain.
b. Exceptions to the Import Ban
Despite this broad prohibition, importers of goods covered by the UFLPA may still be able to rebut the presumption against importation. The Act specifies that the presumption will not be applied if the Commissioner of CBP determines that:
The importer of record has: Fully complied with all due diligence and evidentiary guidance established by the FLETF pursuant to the Act, along with any associated implementing regulations; andCompletely and substantively responded to all CBP inquiries seeking to ascertain whether the goods were produced with forced labor; and''Clear and convincing'' evidence shows that the goods were not produced wholly or in part with forced labor.[18]Each time the Commissioner determines that an exception to the import ban is warranted under the criteria above, the Commissioner must submit a report to Congress within 30 days, identifying the goods subject to the exception and the evidence upon which the determination is based.[19] The Commissioner must make all such reports available to the public.[20]
III. High-Priority Enforcement Sectors
As part of its enforcement strategy, the UFLPA instructs the Forced Labor Enforcement Task Force to prepare both a list of high-priority sectors subject to CBP enforcement, and a sector-specific enforcement plan for each of these high-priority sectors.[21] The Act mandates that cotton, tomatoes, and polysilicon must be among the high-priority sectors, building upon CBP's existing WRO against all cotton and tomato products produced in the XUAR.[22]
The addition of polysilicon on this list of high-priority sectors directly impacts the U.S. solar energy industry: nearly half of the world's polysilicon '-- a key material for the manufacture of solar panels '-- is produced in the XUAR.[23] Despite the dominance of Chinese polysilicon, however, solar industry groups have embraced the passage of the UFLPA and are encouraging solar companies to move their supply chains out of the XUAR.[24] Corporate responsibility concerns surrounding the sourcing of polysilicon from the XUAR have been circulating for at least a year, and the solar industry groups have acted proactively to create standards and procedures to trace and audit supply chains of this important resource. To further this industry-wide goal of eradicating forced labor from solar supply chains,[25] these industry groups recently published a ''Solar Supply Chain Traceability Protocol.''[26]
IV. Sanctions
The UFLPA also amends the Uyghur Human Rights Policy Act of 2020 to underscore that sanctions may be imposed due to ''[s]erious human rights abuses in connection with forced labor'' related to the XUAR. Within 180 days of enactment, the President is required to submit an initial report to Congress identifying non-U.S. persons subject to sanctions under this new provision.[27] The sanctioned individuals will be subject to asset blocking, as provided under the International Emergency Economic Powers Act,[28] as well as the revocation or denial of visas to enter the United States. The President must submit additional reports at least annually identifying non-U.S. persons responsible for human rights violations in the XUAR, including with respect to forced labor, as provided under the Uyghur Human Rights Policy Act.[29]
V. Compliance Takeaways
a. Establishing ''Clear and Convincing'' EvidenceThe Act does not specify what types of evidence might suffice to establish by clear and convincing evidence that goods are not the product of forced labor. Instead, the Act charges the FLETF with publishing an enforcement strategy containing, among other things, ''[g]uidance to importers with respect to . . . the type, nature, and extent of evidence that demonstrates that goods originating in the People's Republic of China . . . were not mined, produced, or manufactured wholly or in part with forced labor.''[30]
While the Act does not clarify what evidence would be necessary to meet the ''clear and convincing'' standard, CBP has issued guidance regarding the detailed evidence importers may need to provide to obtain the release of goods detained pursuant to certain WROs. A similar high bar of documentation '-- if not higher '-- will likely be required under the UFLPA. In addition to the required Certificate of Origin and importer's detailed statement,[31] CBP has highlighted the following forms of evidence as helpful to importers seeking the release of shipments detained pursuant to a WRO:
An affidavit from the provider of the product;Purchase orders, invoices, and proof of payment;A list of production steps and records for the imported merchandise;Transportation documents;Daily manufacturing process reports;Evidence regarding the importer's anti-forced labor compliance program; andAny other relevant information that the importer believes may show that the shipments are not subject to the import ban.[32]The exact contours of any guidance to be issued by the Forced Labor Enforcement Task Force remains uncertain. However, companies with supply chain exposure to the XUAR should expect compliance with the UFLPA to require significant supply chain diligence and documentation obligations. These obligations may exceed the already high benchmarks on diligence established by the FLETF and CBP through years of sustained engagement with non-governmental organizations and other standard-setting stakeholders who are focused on eradicating forced labor from supply chains globally.
b. Due DiligenceThe Act instructs the FLETF to issue guidance on ''due diligence, effective supply chain tracing, and supply chain management measures'' aimed at avoiding the importation of goods produced with forced labor in the XUAR within 180 days of the UFLPA's enactment.[33]
Until the FLETF issues this guidance, companies importing goods into the U.S. should look to recognized international standards to conduct due diligence of their supply chains to identify potential ties to the XUAR. For example, the ''Xinjiang Supply Chain Business Advisory'' identifies the following standards as providing useful guidance on best practices for this due diligence:[34] the UN Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights,[35] the OECD Guidelines on Multinational Enterprises,[36] and the ILO Tripartite Declaration of Principles Concerning Multinational Enterprises and Social Policy.[37] The Advisory warns, however, that third-party audits alone cannot guarantee credible information for due diligence purposes, both because of official harassment of auditors and because of workers' fear of reprisals for speaking to these auditors.[38] To combat this information gap, the Advisory encourages businesses to collaborate within industry groups to share information and build relationships with Chinese suppliers.[39]
The unique circumstances of the forced labor crisis in the XUAR may render due diligence efforts insufficient, however. In 2020, the Congressional-Executive Commission on China warned that ''due diligence in Xinjiang is not possible'' because of official repression and harsh reprisals against whistle blowers, which is made possible by extensive state surveillance in the XUAR.[40] (Notably, this warning coincided with the introduction of the first versions of the bills that would later become the UFLPA.) Moreover, China enacted a series of ''blocking statutes'' in 2021 authorizing, inter alia, countersanctions and civil liability for Chinese nationals who comply with attempts to enforce foreign laws extraterritorially in China.[41] This threat of liability, coupled with the already-existing reprisals, limits the ability of companies to obtain reliable information about their supply chain activity in the XUAR.
VI. Timeline for Enforcement
The Act's rebuttable presumption against the importation of goods produced in the XUAR or by entities identified by the FLETF is set to take effect 180 days after the UFLPA's enactment, on June 21, 2022.
The Act provides that the process for developing the enforcement strategy will proceed as follows:
Within 30 days of enactment (by Jan. 22, 2022): The FLETF will publish a notice soliciting public comment on how best to ensure that goods mined or produced with forced labor in China '-- and particularly in the XUAR '-- are not imported into the United States.[42]No less than 45 days after notice is given (by Mar. 8, 2022): The public, including private sector businesses and non-governmental organizations, will submit comments in response to the FLETF's notice.[43]Within 45 days of the public comment period closing (by Apr. 22, 2022): The FLETF will hold a public hearing, inviting witnesses to testify regarding measures that can be taken to trace supply chains for goods mined or produced in whole or in part with forced labor in China and to ensure that goods made with forced labor do not enter the United States.[44]No later than 180 days after enactment (June 21, 2022): The FLETF, in consultation with the Secretary of Commerce and the Director of National Intelligence, must submit to Congress a strategy for supporting CBP's processes for enforcing the Act. This strategy must include guidance to importers regarding due diligence and supply chain tracing, as well as the nature and extent of evidence required to show that goods originating in China were not mined or produced with forced labor.The Forced Labor Enforcement Task Force must thereafter submit an updated strategy to Congress annually.[45]Notably, the FLETF's enforcement strategy need only be submitted by the day the Act's rebuttable presumption takes effect. Therefore, importers may have little or no advance notice as to what evidence they must submit to rebut the presumption against importation.
VII. Global Efforts to Address Forced Labor in the XUAR
The U.S. is far from the only country targeting forced labor through new executive and legislative actions. In the past year, jurisdictions around the globe have developed a variety of new strategies for eliminating the importation of goods produced with forced labor in the XUAR. These global efforts vary in scope, and many have not yet taken effect. Companies with supply chain exposure to the XUAR should, however, prepare for an increasingly complex international regulatory landscape in coming years.
a. The European Union (''EU'')On September 15, 2021, the European Commission (''EC'') President Ursula von der Leyen announced plans for a ban on products made by forced labor to be proposed in 2022.[46] While the XUAR was not named, the proposed measure has been viewed to directly target forced labor in this region.[47] Recent reports, however, have highlighted disagreements within the EC as to which department is to spearhead the proposal due to trade sensitivities.[48] Therefore, little progress has been made. Most recently, in December 2021, the EU Executive Vice-President for Trade, Valdis Dombrovskis, warned the EC of the risks of a ban targeting only forced labor in the XUAR being deemed as ''discriminatory''. He further noted that the UFLPA ''cannot be automatically replicated in the EU,''[49] and argued instead that including the ban within the EU's proposed Sustainable Corporate Governance Directive (''SCG Directive'') would be more effective.[50]
The EU has sought to address forced labor more generally via its proposal '-- in the form of the SCG Directive '-- for EU-based companies to undertake mandatory human rights due diligence to increase their accountability for human rights and environmental abuses in their supply chains. After lengthy delays, the EC's proposal for the SCG Directive is now due in early 2022.[51]
At the moment, it remains unclear whether the EU will follow the U.S. in imposing a stand-alone ban on imports from the XUAR, or whether the proposed measures will be weakened by incorporating them into the SCG Directive proposal.
b. United KingdomThe U.K. does not currently have legislation equivalent to the UFLPA. However, officials within the Foreign Office and the Department for International Trade have suggested that similar efforts to address imports made with forced labor in the XUAR may be imminent.[52] These efforts would build on the U.K.'s ongoing ''review of export controls as they apply to Xinjiang . . . to prevent the exports of goods that may contribute to human rights abuses in the region.''[53]
c. CanadaIn coordination with the United Kingdom and other international partners, the Canadian government released a statement in January 2021 addressing its concerns with the situation in the XUAR. The government announced that it would adopt a number of measures to combat the alleged human rights violations in the XUAR, including:[54]
Prohibition on Imports of Goods Produced by Forced Labor: On November 24, 2021, Sen. Housakos introduced Bill S-204, an act to amend the ''Customs Tariff (goods from Xinjiang).''[55] Currently at the second reading stage in the Canadian Senate, this bill is intended to prevent the importation of goods believed to be produced through forced labor.[56] Consistent with Canada's obligations under the USMCA, this prohibition would prevent the importation of goods believed to be produced using forced labor in the XUAR.Xinjiang Integrity Declaration for Canadian Companies: Following the amendments made to the Customs Tariff, the Canadian Government established an Integrity Declaration on Doing Business with Xinjiang Entities to guide Canadian companies' business practices in the region. The Integrity Declaration is mandatory for all Canadian companies that (i) source goods, directly or indirectly, from the XUAR or from entities that rely on Uyghur, (ii) are established in the XUAR, or (iii) seek to engage in the XUAR market. If any such company fails to sign the Integrity Declaration, they will be ineligible to receive support from the Trade Commissioner Service.[57]Export Controls: The Canadian government stated that it will deny export licenses for the exportation of goods or technologies if it determines that there is a substantial risk that the export would result in a serious violation of human rights under the Export and Import Permits Act 1985.[58]d. AustraliaIn June 2021, Sen. Patrick introduced the Customs Amendment (Banning Goods Produced by Forced Labour) Bill 2021 to the Australian Senate. The introduction of this bill follows the growing concerns in Australia that the Australian Modern Slavery Act 2018 does not adequately address the issue of state-sanctioned forced labor. Rather limited in its scope, the Modern Slavery Act 2018 requires certain companies to submit annual statements reporting on the risks of modern slavery in their operations and supply chains, as well as any steps they are taking to address such risks. Other entities based or operating in Australia may report this information voluntarily.[59]
Sen. Patrick's bill would go a step further in combatting state-sanctioned forced labor by amending the Customs Act 1901 to prohibit the importation into Australia of goods that are produced in whole or in part by forced labor.[60] Although the bill makes no specific reference to China, human rights abuses in the XUAR were repeatedly cited as the proposal's impetus during the Senate debate. Moreover, if passed, the bill would have the effect of banning the importation of goods made with Uyghur forced labor.[61] The bill was passed through the Australian Senate with cross-party support and the endorsement of the Australian Council of Trade Unions. The bill must now pass the House of Representatives to become law.[62]
e. New ZealandNew Zealand has taken a notably softer stance than the U.S. Although New Zealand's parliament unanimously declared in May 2021 that severe human rights abuses against the Uyghur ethnic minority group were taking place in the XUAR, the motion merely expressed the parliament's 'grave concern'[63] over these human rights abuses. The Uyghur community in New Zealand have requested for parliament to take stronger action, such as declaring the oppression of Uyghurs in China a 'genocide' and placing a ban on the importation of products made by forced labor in the XUAR.[64]

Saudi Arabia mass executes 81 people | TheHill
Sun, 13 Mar 2022 14:53
The Kingdom of Saudi Arabia on Saturday carried out a mass execution of 81 people, the country's state-run Saudi Press Agency reported .
The 81 individuals were convicted of terrorism and capital crimes, including the murder of innocent men, women and children, according to Saudi's Ministry of Interior.
The executed individuals were ''guilty of committing multiple heinous crimes that left a large number of civilians and law enforcement officers dead," according to the Press Agency,
In addition to murder, the convictions also included kidnapping, torture, rape and smuggling weapons and bombs into the country.
Specific crimes of the individuals included: membership in terrorist organizations such as ISIS, Al Qaeda and the Houthi rebels of Yemen; targeting Saudi residents; traveling to regional conflict zones to join terrorist organizations; targeting members of the Saudi government; killing and maiming law enforcement officers; and targeting police vehicles with land mines.
The executed individuals were arrested and tried in Saudi courts, the Press Agency reported, saying that each individual was seen by 13 judges over three separate stages of trial.
The individuals maintained their full rights under Saudi law during the process of the trials and were allowed access to lawyers, the Press Agency noted.
''The Kingdom will continue to take a strict and unwavering stance against terrorism and extremist ideologies that threaten the stability of the entire world,'' the Agency added.
United Airlines to bring back workers idled over vaccination | WGN-TV

CHICAGO (AP) '-- United Airlines will bring back employees who were placed on unpaid leave last year because they refused to get vaccinated against COVID-19.
The airline told employees in a memo Thursday that workers who avoided vaccination by claiming a medical or religious exemption will be allowed back starting March 28.
The company's vice president of human relations, Kirk Limacher, said in the memo that United was taking the step because it expects coronavirus cases, hospitalizations and deaths to continue to drop over the next few weeks.
SEE ALSO: United Airlines will start 'separating' with employees who did not get vaccinated
New reported cases of COVID-19 in the United States have dropped sharply since mid-January, when the highly contagious omicron variant began to wane.
''Of course, if another variant emerges or the COVID trends suddenly reverse course, we will reevaluate the appropriate safety protocols at that time,'' Limacher said.
Last year, CEO Scott Kirby pushed the mandate as a critical safety measure, and United became one of the most visible U.S. corporations to impose a vaccine requirement. The company said that about 97% of its 67,000 U.S. workers got the shots, and only about 200 were terminated.
More than 2,000 workers claimed a medical or religious exemption from vaccination. They were not fired but were placed on unpaid leave, and several sued the Chicago-based company.

A United spokeswoman said Thursday that the company still requires new employees to be vaccinated.
More than 950,000 Americans have died from COVID-19 since the pandemic started, but the rates of new cases, hospitalizations and deaths have fallen in the past two months. Through Monday, the seven-day rolling average for daily new cases in the U.S. fell 52% to about 42,000 over the previous two weeks, according to data from Johns Hopkins University. The average topped 800,000 daily cases in mid-January.
Brave Search and Presearch Say They Don't Censor Search Results '' Freedom First Network
Sun, 13 Mar 2022 14:15
After DuckDuckGo announced that it would be abandoning its years-long commitment to ''unbiased'' search results by down-ranking ''Russian disinformation,'' two alternative search engines, Brave Search and Presearch, have committed to not censoring their search results.
Brendan Eich, the CEO of Brave Software (the company behind the privacy-focused Brave browser, Brave Search, and other products), told journalist and producer Naomi Brockwell that Brave Search doesn't censor its results and detailed how Brave Search is expanding its own search index.
Currently, over 90% of Brave Search's queries are provided by its independent search index which was built from scratch. Eich noted that Brave Search currently relies on Bing for the less than 10% of queries where it doesn't have good results and acknowledged that this fallback ''could be censored.''
''We'll get to full independence,'' Eich added. ''Fallback necessary rn, but fades.''
We have our own index (cf. DDG) and we don't censor.
For <10% of queries where we don't have good results, we rely on Bing presently, so that fallback could be censored. You can tell when results come from them.
We'll get to full independence. Fallback necessary rn, but fades.
'-- BrendanEich (@BrendanEich) March 10, 2022
Eich continued by noting that Brave Search has an ''Info'' link above each search results page (which shows whether all the search results on the page came from the Brave Search index) and a ''Search results independence'' percentage in Brave Search's settings (which shows the percentage of all Brave Search results that currently come from its independent index).
Presearch, a private, decentralized, blockchain-powered search engine, also tweeted that it ''doesn't censor.''
Presearch added: ''That's the power of decentralized, unbiased search. The need for decentralized, unbiased search will only grow from here.''
As Presearch notes in its tweets, its search indexes are built and hosted by a decentralized network of node operators. It's also open-source which means users can contribute code that's shown its search results pages.
In addition to the commitment to not censoring their results, both search engines have several unique aspects and features that enhance your search experience.
Brave Search has search shortcuts (which let you quickly jump to search results on a specific site), visual autosuggest, search filters (that let you filter by format, date, country, and more), featured snippets, and shelves that highlight recent news and videos.
Presearch has an integrated PRE cryptocurrency that's used to reward node operators and users and can be staked by advertisers who want to display ads against specific keywords. It also has knowledge panels, a news shelf, a video shelf, quick links to related articles and related searches, search filters (that let you filter by image, video, or news), and quick links for conducting your searches via other sites.

Out of the Doghouse, Into the Bed - The New York Times
Sun, 13 Mar 2022 14:07
Credit... iStock For most Americans, dogs are no longer relegated to the doghouse. According to the American Pet Products Association, an industry trade group, almost 60 percent of dog owners say they regard their pet as a child or member of the family. And many let their dogs snuggle up to sleep right in their human owners' beds, often alongside their owners.
But is sleeping in the same bed with your dog a good idea? Wouldn't they be disruptive to our sleep?
According to a recent study, not really. Researchers at the Mayo Clinic in Phoenix studied 40 dogs (none were puppies) who slept in the bedroom with their owners. The humans were all generally good sleepers, with no known sleep disorders.
The dogs wore a device called a Fitbark, an activity tracker that attaches to the collar and records whether an animal is at rest and sleeping or active and at play. The people wore an Actiwatch 2, an activity monitor that records people's movements and whether they are sleeping soundly or not. Both monitors were set to sample movement every minute, while the humans also kept a sleep diary.
Over seven days of testing, the researchers found that with a dog in the bedroom, both the humans and the dogs slept reasonably well. Humans had a mean sleep efficiency, or the percentage of time spent asleep while in bed, of 81 percent, while dogs had a sleep efficiency of 85 percent. Levels over 80 percent are generally considered satisfactory. People slept slightly better when the dog was off the bed; dogs slept the same whether they were on the bed or in another location in the bedroom.
''This goes against the lore that you should have the dog sleep elsewhere,'' and not in the bedroom, said Dr. Lois E. Krahn, the study's senior author and a psychiatrist and sleep medicine specialist at the Center for Sleep Medicine at the Mayo Clinic. Her 6-year-old golden retriever, Phoebe, routinely sleeps on the floor in the bedroom '-- and in the colder months joins her and her husband on their bed. Both the dog and the people, she said, sleep fine.
In an earlier study from 2015, Dr. Krahn and her colleagues asked patients who had visited the Mayo Clinic's sleep clinic whether they owned dogs, cats or other pets. About half did, with many owning more than one. Forty-one percent said they perceived their pet as unobtrusive or beneficial to their sleep, compared to 20 percent who said their pet was disruptive. That study was self-reported, and ''we can't quite trust people to have an accurate report or even be able to accurately observe their feelings for their pets,'' Dr. Krahn said. ''It's sort of like a parent's feelings for their child. I wanted to have objective data.'' Hence the recent follow-up report that used activity monitors to get objective data.
Where the pet sleeps ''depends on the animal's temperament,'' said Dr. Carlo Siracusa, a veterinarian and the director of animal behavioral science at Penn Vet in Philadelphia. ''There are dogs that tend to be more reactive to stimuli. So, for example, if the dog is on the bed and the owner turns and inadvertently hits the dog with the leg, some dogs will get startled and react out of fear,'' growling or barking and waking the sleeper, he said. Other dogs aren't bothered at all. ''If there are no problems and the owner is happy with letting the pet in the bedroom, or on the bed, it's fine with me.''
He added that a dog sleeping in the same room or bed with humans won't make Sparky think he's top dog. ''Dogs can distinguish between the relationship with its human fellows and other dogs, and the way in which they regulate their interactions with humans in the house is not trying to establish a hierarchy,'' he said.
Some dogs may not belong in the bedroom, such as very young or old pets who may not sleep through the night, a sick pet or a reactive pet who might become aggressive when startled or woken up suddenly. Also, if a new baby is entering the family and will sleep in the same bedroom as the parents, Dr. Siracusa said, that might no longer be a good place for the pet to sleep '' not because of concerns of a pet smothering a baby, he said, but because space may be an issue with that many human and furry bodies in one room.
If a pet is already sleeping in your bed or in the bedroom and interfering with your sleep, you can take steps to transition a pet out of the bedroom. Dr. Siracusa said it is best to make the transition a gradual one rather than abruptly kicking the pet out of the bed or bedroom. That may mean first moving a dog from the human bed to a comfortable spot elsewhere in the bedroom, and then moving the pet just outside the door.
The key is to create a similar sleeping experience for the pet. Dogs may be attracted to humans' beds, especially if they're elevated, ''because they are comfortable and strategically in a good position,'' letting dogs keep watch over their surroundings, Dr. Siracusa said. Creating an equally strategic place might mean that it's also elevated, or that it has coverings that the dog can burrow under, or that it is near a heater that can simulate the warmth of the people in the humans' bed.
Some dogs will never want to sleep with their owners, especially if the owner snores or moves around a lot at night. ''When dogs sleep, they want a safe space and don't want to be bothered,'' just like people, he said.
Figuring out where a new dog should sleep can take some time. When Natalie Hastings and her husband adopted Mikey, a 70-pound boxer bulldog mix, they tried letting him sleep in the bed at first, but he shifted around so much they moved him onto a couch. But as Mikey became more settled in their home and he slept more soundly through the night, that changed. He started sleeping in the bed with Mrs. Hastings when her husband traveled for work. Now he's there all the time and, Mrs. Hastings says, helps her fall asleep faster.
''I have trouble settling down, and he's got very rhythmic breathing,'' she said of Mikey. ''It's almost like white noise. And he's really warm.''
Dr. Krahn said the next step in her research is to study a larger group of dogs and their owners, and also to see whether having one or two humans in the bed makes a difference.
She'd also like to do a similar study on cats, though they, of course, are entirely different animals. In addition to Phoebe, she has a 4-year-old cat, Oliver, who is allowed anywhere in the house except the bedroom because ''the cat wanders, scratches, meows,'' she said. While most dogs can be trained, ''I think cats do what they want. If that cat is hungry in the middle of the night, that cat does not care'' about waking you up, she said.
Oliver the cat declined to comment.
Global tech firms are lining up to hire Ukraine's world-renowned coders

Companies are lining up to try to hire coders who have been caught up in Russia's invasion of Ukraine.
Some 2 million-plus Ukrainian citizens have been displaced in recent weeks, with some of them possessing in-demand technical skills.
Dozens of companies have posted over 500 job ads for tech roles on a website called Remote Ukraine that's been set up to help firms around the world hire Ukrainians. The companies are mostly from Europe but some are also from the likes of U.S. and Canada.
Firms such as Modular Automation and WarDucks in Ireland, Sportradar in Switzerland and Drive System Design in England, are among the tech companies that have shared job ads on the site, with roles on offer ranging from a Web3 developer to a senior 3D artist.
Martin Armstrong, founder of U.K.-based Somerton, a tech platform that aims to partner athletes with coaches, told CNBC that he's made five verbal offers to engineers, content writers and tech sales people. The issue is he can't get visas for them.
"There is no process if you do not have relations here," Armstrong said. "(U.K. Interior Minister) Priti Patel says she is changing it. Here's hoping."
He's made a formal offer to another Ukrainian who is moving to Warsaw to work remotely for him.
Elsewhere, London-based enterprise software firm Cutover has set up a separate "fast-track" engineering role specifically for displaced Ukrainian engineers.
Oscar White, CEO of Beyonk, a venture-backed travel tech platform, told CNBC that he's currently keeping an eye out for job applicants from Ukraine.
"They're meant to be some of the best developers in the world," he said.
A tech powerhouseA surprisingly large amount of tech that enables our every day lives is built by engineers and software developers in Ukraine.
WhatsApp, Grammarly, Gitlab and Solana were all founded or co-founded by Ukrainians, while Google and Samsung all have research and development centers in the country.
Christian Reber, CEO of presentation app Pitch, told CNBC that he has three engineers based remotely in Ukraine and that the company is doing as much as it can to support them.
"We've offered to cover transportation and accommodation costs for all affected Pitch employees and their families, and given them unlimited time off work, no questions asked," he said.
Like other companies, Pitch has also offered to pay salaries up to three months in advance and provided support in terms of helping to set up bank accounts outside Ukraine.
Denys Zhadanov, a Ukrainian entrepreneur, told CNBC that he has 230 employees in the country.
"The majority are in Odessa, which is safe for now," he said.
Elsewhere, CleverFiles, a U.S. company that aims to help people recover deleted computer files, has more than 20 people working full-time from cities including Kyiv, Kharkiv and Zaporizhzhia.
"At this point, every employee is trying to find a safe place for their family," Alina Mulova, a senior online marketing manager told CNBC on Monday. "Some people have been able to move to western Ukraine, while others cannot leave their cities and are hiding in shelters."
Mulova said CleverFiles' Ukrainian employees are being kept on payroll even though many of them aren't able to work.
Educated citizensMisha Karpenko, co-founder and senior software engineer at Pitch, told CNBC there are several factors that make Ukraine a great market for highly-qualified tech talent.
"Ukraine has several big technical universities, and a strong culture of encouraging young people to pursue higher education, as I was myself," he said. "Ukrainian society considers technical studies as generally more valuable than humanities."
He added: "More broadly speaking, when the Soviet Union fell apart, many Ukrainians enjoyed newfound freedom and connection with the West but still lived poorly, and couldn't afford to have a PC at home. This led to a surge in interest in computers and software among children and teenagers that grew up in the 90s-2000s, like me."
There are over 10 universities in Kyiv alone and there's a big emphasis on science, technology, engineering and mathematics in the country.
Josh Feldberg, a digital lead at a climate change non-profit in Barcelona, told CNBC that Ukrainians have got a "very good reputation" when it comes to coding.
Feldberg said that all the Ukrainian coders he's worked with have had a comprehensive education with formal training. "They haven't just home-taught themselves," he said.
"A lot of them studied computer science," Feldberg said, adding that many take the time to fully understand Java, one of the most important computing languages.
In terms of who he's worked with, Feldberg said that he's worked with designers, data scientists and front and back end developers from Ukraine.
Obstacles to overcomeLike other countries, the vast majority of tech workers in Ukraine are male. However, men aged 18-60 are not currently allowed to leave the country as the government wants them to stay and fight.
As a result, many Ukrainian software developers are still in the country and working under Russian bombing.
On Monday, Tatyana Perebiynis, who was an accountant for mobile app and game publisher Gismart, was reportedly killed in the city of Irpen near Kyiv with her two children and pet dogs. They were shot down by Russian mortar fire.
Other Ukrainian tech workers have been relocated to neighboring countries by their employers. Israeli social media app Tango has been helping its 90 research and development workers to relocate to Poland, where it has just opened a new office.
Meanwhile, U.K. start-up Localyze has been offering free relocation services to Ukrainian employees.
But Ukrainian coders can't go wherever they wish at the drop of a hat.
Britain, for example, is only letting people in if they have immediate or extended family in the country. The family member must have British nationality, indefinite leave to remain, settled status or proof of permanent residence.
Many Ukrainians who are trying to seek refuge in the U.K. are being held up by bureaucracy or being turned away altogether, according to reports.
About 760 visas have been granted via the Ukraine Family Scheme, one government minister said Wednesday, adding that 22,000 applications are "on their way through."
U.K. Interior Minister Priti Patel said Thursday that the entry process is still being streamlined, adding that the applications are being moved online and that Ukrainians will longer need to physically attend visa centers before entering the U.K. providing they have a passport.
'Risk worth taking': US rushes shoulder-fired missiles to Ukraine | Russia-Ukraine war News | Al Jazeera
Sun, 13 Mar 2022 12:27
Washington is sending highly sensitive items such as portable air defence systems to Kyiv, senior US defence official says.
Published On 12 Mar 2022 12 Mar 2022
The United States and NATO are shipping weapons into Ukraine at breakneck speed, including highly sensitive items such as shoulder-fired missiles called man-portable air defence systems (MANPADS) that can take down aircraft.
The Western arms deliveries, another of which is expected to arrive in the coming hours, have been vital to enabling Ukrainians to fight the invading Russian forces far more effectively and fiercely than US intelligence expected.
But moving those amounts of weaponry into the largest conflict in Europe since World War II carries with it risks that some could fall into the wrong hands '' a possibility the West has considered.
''Frankly, we believe that risk is worth taking right now because the Ukrainians are fighting so skillfully with the tools at their disposal and they're using them so creatively,'' a senior US defence official said on Friday when asked about that danger.
Highly portable missiles such as Stinger surface-to-air missiles, which are a type of MANPAD, can help win wars, but in the past, they have also been lost, sold, or wound up in the arsenals of armed groups.
For example, hundreds of Stingers supplied by the US were seen as key to helping mujahideen rebels drive Soviet forces out of Afghanistan in a conflict that spanned the 1980s and 1990s.
But the US subsequently spent years trying to recover unused MANPADS from that country and other conflict zones around the world.
In a Pentagon-financed study in 2019, the RAND Corporation think-tank estimated that upwards of 60 civilian aircraft have been hit by MANPADS since the 1970s, killing more than 1,000 civilians. As of 2019, 57 non-state armed groups were confirmed to possess or suspected to possess MANPADS.
Russia was ''far and away the single largest exporter of MANPADS'', RAND Corp said, with more than 10,000 systems sold between 2010 and 2018 to countries including Iraq, Venezuela, Kazakhstan, Qatar and Libya.
The US and NATO have not disclosed how many MANPADS have been transferred to Ukraine since the start of the invasion, which is now in its third week.
So far, Russia has not targeted Western weapons convoys headed into Ukraine and the senior US defence official said Washington had not seen any Western-supplied inventory falling into Russian hands. But that could change.
'A dangerous move'Russia said on Saturday its troops could target supplies of Western weapons in Ukraine.
''We warned the United States that the orchestrated pumping of weapons from a number of countries is not just a dangerous move, it is a move that turns these convoys into legitimate targets,'' Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Sergey Ryabkov told state television.
He said Moscow had warned ''about the consequences of the thoughtless transfer to Ukraine of weapons like man-portable air defence systems, anti-tank missile systems and so on''.
Ryabkov said Washington had not taken Moscow's warnings seriously, adding Russia and the US were not holding any ''negotiation processes'' on Ukraine.
At a Friday meeting of Russia's Security Council, Defence Minister Sergey Shoigu talked about potential future seizures of Western-made Javelin anti-tank weapons and Stingers. They should be handed to Russian-backed forces in the breakaway Donbas region of eastern Ukraine, he said.
Russian President Vladimir Putin publicly backed the idea.
''As to the delivery of arms, especially Western-made ones which have fallen into the hands of the Russian army '' of course, I support the possibility of giving these to the military units of the Lugansk and Donetsk people's republics,'' Putin said.
''Please do this,'' Putin told Shoigu.
Moderna plots vaccines against 15 pathogens with future pandemic potential | Reuters

Register now for FREE unlimited access to Reuters.comMarch 7 (Reuters) - Moderna Inc (MRNA.O) said on Monday it plans to develop and begin testing vaccines targeting 15 of the world's most worrisome pathogens by 2025 and will permanently wave its COVID-19 vaccine patents for shots intended for certain low- and middle-income countries.
The U.S. biotechnology company also said it will make its messenger RNA (mRNA) technology available to researchers working on new vaccines for emerging and neglected diseases through a program called mRNA Access.
Moderna announced its strategy ahead of the Global Pandemic Preparedness Summit sponsored by the UK government and the Coalition for Epidemic Preparedness Innovations (CEPI), an international coalition set up five years ago to prepare for future disease threats.
Register now for FREE unlimited access to Reuters.comModerna is already collaborating with partners on vaccines against some of the 15 pathogens, which include Chikungunya, Crimean-Congo hemorrhagic fever, Dengue, Ebola, Malaria, Marburg, Lassa fever, MERS and COVID-19.
Those collaborations include a Nipah virus vaccine with the U.S. National Institutes of Health and an HIV vaccine with the Gates Foundation and the International AIDS Vaccine Initiative, Moderna President Stephen Hoge said in an interview.
The company will either seek out new partners for the others or develop them internally, he said.
Moderna Chief Executive Stephane Bancel told a virtual press briefing on Monday that the 15 viruses are known threats that have not been addressed by many large drugmakers. The COVID-19 pandemic, which has killed six million people worldwide and sickened millions more, has made clear that needs to change, Bancel said.
"Too many lives were lost in the last few years,'' he said.
Early in the COVID pandemic, Moderna pledged not to enforce its vaccine patents during the emergency phase of the health crisis.
That has allowed for development of a vaccine manufacturing plant in Africa backed by the World Health Organization as part of a pilot project to give poor and middle-income countries the know-how to make COVID-19 vaccines.
Moderna said it will make that pledge permanent for the 92 low- and middle income countries that qualify for assistance under the COVAX Advance Market Commitment (AMC) led by the GAVI vaccine alliance.
A company spokesperson said Moderna will not enforce patents for COVID-19 vaccines developed in South Africa by WHO-backed Afrigen Biologics for AMC-92 low- and middle-income countries.
Although it will not enforce its patents in these countries, Hoge said Moderna does not intend to share its vaccine technology with the WHO-backed technology transfer hub in South Africa, in spite of lobbying efforts by the organization. read more
Earlier on Monday, the company said it will set up a manufacturing facility in Kenya, its first in Africa, to produce mRNA vaccines, including against COVID-19. read more
As part of its future pandemic plan, Moderna intends to make its technology available to academic research labs to test their own theories for vaccines to address emerging and neglected diseases. Hoge said some of these may eventually result in partnerships with Moderna to address the 15 priority pathogens.
"What we want to make sure happens is that scientists who have great ideas for how they could make vaccines will be able to access our standards and technology, almost as if they worked at Moderna," Hoge said.
Initially, the program will start with a few academic labs, but Hoge expects it to expand rapidly. He sees the program as a way to expand discovery of vaccines using mRNA technology.
"We want to make sure that we allow others to explore the space that frankly, we can't get to," he said. "And that's really what this is about."

Moderna Will Develop mRNA Vaccines for 15 of the World's Worst Diseases
Sun, 13 Mar 2022 12:23
To much of the world, it seemed like the Covid-19 vaccines were whipped up in less than a year'--an amazing feat of science and biotechnology if ever there was one. While the vaccines did get fast-tracked through clinical trial and regulatory approval phases, the truth is that the technology behind the Pfizer and Moderna vaccines'--mRNA'--had been in the works for decades. Now Moderna is leveraging that same technology to fight several other viruses.
This week Moderna announced plans to develop vaccines against 15 different pathogens that either have the potential to cause a pandemic or are an ongoing thorn in humanity's side. Among them are chikungunya, dengue, ebola, malaria, and Covid's predecessor, Middle East Respiratory Syndrome (MERS).
Traditional vaccines use a weakened piece of a virus to expose our bodies to it so they can get some practice launching a counter-attack before being fully exposed. mRNA vaccines work by training our cells to create proteins to fight viruses. DNA makes mRNA, which acts as a ''messenger'' by instructing our cells to make proteins (and those proteins in turn control pretty much everything that happens in our cells).
The ''workshop'' where the proteins get made is the cell's ribosome. Scientists at the University of Pennsylvania were able to create mRNA that could get past cells' defenses without triggering an immune response, but still be recognized by the ribosome. In the case of the Covid vaccines, the modified RNA was programmed to get the ribosome to make the virus's telltale spike protein.
The immune system tags this protein as an invader and launches a response, producing antibodies to fight what seems like an infection. When a vaccinated person comes into contact with the real virus, his or her cells know how to fight it before it takes over the body.
The mRNA, then, is essentially a delivery vehicle, a Trojan horse that can be made to smuggle in instructions to make any protein of scientists' choosing. They identify a vaccine target by sequencing a virus's genome'--the low cost and fast turnaround of genome sequencing is another key part to this technology'--then encode mRNA for the relevant protein.
As Drew Weissman, one of the physician-scientists who helped develop mRNA vaccine technology put it, ''mRNA vaccines are essentially plug and play. We believe you can change the part of the mRNA that encodes a protein, plugging in new code specific to the virus we hope to protect against, and cause one's body to produce proteins that match that virus' proteins. We do not have to develop and manufacture an entirely new formula.''
On top of that, mRNA is easy to scale in production at a relatively low cost, making it easier and more cost-effective to screen multiple vaccine candidates quickly.
Creating 15 new vaccines, then, may not be as much work as it sounds like (though getting them through clinical trials and ultimately bringing them to market probably still will be). The company plans to prioritize work on viruses classified as ''persistent global health threats,'' including HIV, tuberculosis, and malaria, and aims to have vaccines for all 15 pathogens in clinical trials by 2025 (its HIV vaccine already started human trials last year).
Two other significant pieces of news were included in Moderna's release this week. First, the company said it would permanently wave its Covid-19 vaccine patents in low- and middle-income countries, sticking to a pledge made early in the pandemic. This means labs in these countries can use the company's technology to produce local versions of a Covid vaccine. 92 countries are included, all of them part of the Gavi COVAX Advance Market Commitment.
Moderna also said it plans to build a $500 million facility for manufacturing mRNA vaccines in Kenya, and will supply up to 500 million doses a year of mRNA vaccines to the African continent.

USDA to invest $250 million to support American-made fertilizer | Successful Farming
Sun, 13 Mar 2022 12:17
The U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) is announcing it will support additional fertilizer production for American farmers to address rising costs, including the impact of Russia's price hike on farmers, and spur competition.
USDA will make available $250 million through a new grant program this summer to support independent, innovative, and sustainable American fertilizer production to supply American farmers.
READ MORE: What is going on with fertilizer prices?Additionally, to address growing competition concerns in the agricultural supply chain, USDA will launch a public inquiry seeking information regarding seeds and agricultural inputs, fertilizer, and retail markets.
''Recent supply chain disruptions from the global pandemic to Russia President Vladimir Putin's unprovoked war against Ukraine have shown just how important it is to invest in this crucial link in the agricultural supply chain here at home,'' said USDA Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack.
LISTEN: Practices to reduce fertilizer costs''The planned investment is one example of many Biden-Harris Administration initiatives to bring production and jobs back to the United States, promote competition, and support American goods and services,'' Vilsack says.
''As the president said [at the State of the Union], we are working to rebuild the economy toward resilience, security, and sustainability, and this support to provide domestic, sustainable and independent choices for fertilizer supplies is part of that effort. In addition to the jobs, lower costs, and more reliable supply, increased investment in the domestic fertilizer industry will help address climate change by reducing the greenhouse gas emissions associated with transportation, while also fostering more sustainable production methods and more precise application,'' he says.
Fertilizer prices have more than doubled since last year due to many factors including Putin's price hike, a limited supply of the relevant minerals and high energy costs, high global demand and agricultural commodity prices, reliance on fertilizer imports, and lack of competition in the fertilizer industry.
READ MORE: Managing P and K in an era of higher pricesThe United States is a major importer and dependent on foreign fertilizer and is the second or third top importer for each of the three major components of fertilizer. The top producers of the major components of fertilizer include China, Russia, Canada, and Morocco, with Belarus also providing a significant share of potash.
USDA will use funds from the Commodity Credit Corporation (CCC) set aside in September for market disruptions to develop a grant program that provides 'gap' financing to bring new, independent domestic production capacity on-line '-- similar to the recently announced meat and poultry grants that are designed to promote competition and resilience in that sector.
The new program will support fertilizer production that is:Independent '' outside the dominant fertilizer suppliers, increasing competition in a concentrated market.Made in America '' produced in the United States by domestic companies, creating good-paying jobs at home and reducing the reliance on potentially unstable or inconsistent foreign supplies.Innovative ''improves fertilizer production methods to jump start the next generation of fertilizers.Sustainable '' reduces the greenhouse gas impact of transportation, production, and use through renewable energy sources, feedstocks, formulations, and incentivizing greater precision in fertilizer use.Farmer-focused '' like other Commodity Credit Corporation investments, a driving factor will be providing support and opportunities for U.S. agriculture commodity producers.Details on the application process will be announced in the summer of 2022, with the first awards expected before the end of 2022.
READ MORE: Manure provides farmers an alternative nutrient source amid volatile fertilizer marketUnder the Biden-Harris Administration, USDA is engaged in a whole-of-government effort to combat the climate crisis and conserve and protect our nation's lands, biodiversity, and natural resources including our soil, air, and water. Successfully meeting these challenges will require coordination and partnerships with stakeholders throughout the supply chain such as the planned investment in innovative domestic fertilizer production.
This effort is also part of the Biden-Harris Administration's whole-of-government effort to promote competition, including in agricultural markets.
As part of its efforts to enhance fair and competitive markets, USDA is requesting comments and information from the public about the impacts of concentration and market power in fertilizer, seeds, and other agricultural inputs, and retail.
With these RFIs, USDA is also seeking information on competition and market access for farmers and ranchers, new and growing market competitors, especially small and medium-size enterprises, and more about the context for these markets for farmers.
The inquiry stems from the July 9, 2021, Executive Order on ''Promoting Competition in the American Economy,'' which created a White House Competition Council and directed federal agency actions to enhance fairness and competition across America's economy.
''Concentrated market structures and potentially anticompetitive practices leave America's farmers, businesses, and consumers facing higher costs, fewer choices, and less control about where to buy and sell, and reduced innovation '-- ultimately making it harder for those who grow our food to survive,'' said Secretary Vilsack. ''As I talk to farmers, ranchers, and agriculture and food companies about the recent market challenges, I hear significant concerns about whether large companies along the supply chain are taking advantage of the situation by increasing profits '-- not just responding to supply and demand or passing along the costs.''
USDA will seek information specifically on:FertilizerSeed and agricultural inputs, in particular as they relate to the intellectual property systemRetail, including access to retail through wholesale and distribution markets.The comment period will be open for 60 days once the requests for information are published in the Federal Register, and upon which time comments can be submitted to regulations.gov.
USDA will use the comments received to develop reports mandated under the Competition E.O., and to develop policies relating to fair and competitive markets, supply chain resiliency, pandemic response, local and regional food systems, and other areas. Subsequent actions may range from new grant and loan programs to additional rules and regulations under the Packers and Stockyards Act of 1921 and other relevant laws to increase fairness and competition in American agricultural markets.
China To Expand Coal Use As It Prioritizes Energy Security | OilPrice.com
Sun, 13 Mar 2022 12:16
Despite pledges to contribute to global efforts of reducing emissions, China will continue to maximize the use of coal in coming years as it caters to its energy security, the top Chinese policymakers said this week.
Chinese President Xi Jinping has told representatives from its biggest coal-producing region, Inner Mongolia, that China "could not part from reality" and that it is "rich in coal, poor in oil and short of gas," Reuters reported on Friday.
The energy transition is a long process and China cannot just "slam the brakes" on coal, according to Xi.
China's energy mix continues to 'Žshift to a greener one, but coal still represented more than half of its energy mix, according to BP's Statistical Review of World Energy. In 2020, the latest available data, coal's 'Žshare fell to 57 percent, 'Žcompared to 58 percent in 2019. But Chinese coal exports rose to their highest level since 2014, and domestic coal output also rose, the BP review found.
Last month, China said it would help run its coal-fired power plants at full capacity in a bid to ensure energy security, despite the climate goals of the world's largest polluter.
China is concerned about its energy security after the autumn 2021 power crisis and, most recently, the Russian invasion of Ukraine, which pushed energy commodity prices sky-high.
China, the world's largest coal consumer and largest greenhouse gas emitter, has said it targets to achieve net-zero emissions by 2060, but last autumn's power crisis and record-high global coal prices amid an overall energy shortage made energy security a top priority for the country.
A few months ago, China ordered a ramp-up of coal production, which hit record-highs for both December 2021 and the whole of 2021.
China plans to increase its crude oil, natural gas, and coal production, boost reserves of energy commodities, and keep stable imports to ensure its energy security amid skyrocketing commodities prices, the top Chinese economic planner said last week.

India Is Mulling Rupee-Ruble Payments System For Trade With Russia | ZeroHedge
Sun, 13 Mar 2022 12:15
Authored by Jerri-Lynn Scofield via NakedCapitalism.com,
India is discussing how to set up a rupee-ruble payment mechanism to enable it to trade with Russia, to circumvent the U.S. sanctions regime.
India abstained from voting on the March United Nations (UN) General Assembly Resolution demanding an end to Russian offensive in Ukraine (General Assembly resolution demands end to Russian offensive in Ukraine).
Since its Independence, India has tried to steer a neutral course between the U.S. and Russia (and previously, the USSR). During the 1950s, India's first prime minister, Jawaharlal Nehru, was a prime architect behind the Non-Aligned Movement, under which developing countries tried to pursue their national interests without binding themselves to either the U.S. or Soviet bloc. India, Indonesia, and Yugoslavia were mainstays of that movement, which today includes 120 member states, 18 observer states, and 10 international organisations.
Following the collapse of the Soviet Union, India developed closer relations with the United States. Most recently, under prime minister Narendra Modi, India's policy tilted even more decisively in a pro-U.S. direction. Modi and Trump shared a strong affinity, and Modi even travelled to the U.S, to host massive rallies intended to galvanize Indian Americans in support of Trump. See this BBC account for further details, What did the Trump-Modi 'bromance' achieve?
During the last several months, several considerations have prompted the Modi government to rethink the wisdom of putting all its eggs in the U.S. basket. Instead, India is returning to a more balanced approach, assessing its national interests vis-a-vis those of other countries and acting accordingly.
Two developments this summer caused India to question the reliability and integrity of the U.S. as an ally.
The first was the manner of the U.S. pullout from Afghanistan, which had External Affairs Minister S. Jaishankar wondering about the value of U.S. security guarantees. Washington's Ukraine policy is only increasing those misgivings. The United States was willing to push Ukraine to take actions that many '' including Henry Kissinger, George Kennan, and Noam Chomsky '' warned Russia couldn't abide. But then when the shooting started, the United States wasn't willing to get in line of fire.
And in the second, in September, the U.S. stunned many when it announced a new Australia/United Kingdom/United States security grouping (AUKUS), as part of which Australia would receive American nuclear submarines. Prior to the new arrangement, the Quad ''comprised of the U.S., Australia, India, and Japan '' was the principal counterweight to China in the Indo-Pacific (see this Council on Foreign Relations summary, The Quad in the Indo-Pacific: What to Know).
This AUKUS announcement caused consternation both in France and India. Australia cancelled a $37 billion deal with a French company to supply diesel -powered submarines, prompting French foreign minister Jean-Yves Le Drian, according to the BBC, Aukus: French minister condemns US and Australia 'lies' over security pact to accuse the three countries of ''duplicity, a major breach of trust and contempt''..'' The United States has consistently told India that it couldn't share sensitive nuclear submarine technology, according to the South China Morning Post, Aukus fallout: for years, US told India it couldn't share nuclear submarine technology. 'And now this '...'). In the wake of the AUKUS development, France and India have strengthened their bilateral ties, with more of the same expected.
Another reason India must tread carefully arises from its past military procurement policy. Since the early 1970s, India has purchased much of its armaments from Russia. Although as part of its tilt towards Washington, India has in recent yearsdecreased its reliance on Russian arms, ''Today, 60% of India's military hardware inventory is from Russia or the former Soviet Union and the bulk of India's license-based defense manufacturing comes from Russia,'' according to Defense News, India braces for sanctions on Russia to delay weapons programs, deliveries. This makes India dependent on Russia for the supply of spare parts. Shunning Russia would mean India must find new sources of armaments.
The realization of the shakiness of U.S security guarantees means that India is rethinking the state of its relations with China. Although the two countries have gone to war since Independence, their bilateral relationship has not always been hostile. Now that the value of U.S. security guarantees is being more openly questioned, one option for India is to try and ensure that its bilateral relations with China don't deteriorate to the point of outright hostility again. That the two countries are becoming more closely bound is true, at least on the economic level, with the latest bilateral trade figures showing imports from China increasing by 30% over 2019 (to $97.5 billion) and exports climbing by 30% over 2019 (to 28.1billion). according to The Hindu, India-China trade crossed $125 bn in 2021.
China (1.4 billion) and India (1.38 billion) together account for more than a quarter of the world's 7.9 billion people, so anything that dials down bilateral tensions is to be encouraged.
To Be Non-Aligned on Russia Policy Implies India Finding Trade WorkaroundThe U.S. led economic sanctions regime against Russia is inevitably porous to some degree. Not all Russian banks have been excluded from SWIFT. Crimping Russia's ability to spend dollars doesn't shut off its ability to trade with willing partners. India appears to be one such partner. Despite loud squawking in the U.S. Congress about its failure to support the UN Russia resolution, India appears to be banking that the Biden administration won't impose sanctions on India (for more on that sound and fury, see this Times of India account, Biden officials bat for India amid criticism of New Delhi's stand on Russia-Ukraine spat).
The bilateral relationship between the United States and India the two countries has changed significantly since the 1960s, when then-prime minister Indira Gandhi was forced to muzzle her criticisms of U.S. bombing of Hanoi and Haiphong in order to secure necessary U.S. food grains after a savage drought. Per the Indian Express, Swallowing the humiliation:
Many of us still have hurtful memories of the mid-'60s when, after two successive years of savage drought, India desperately needed American wheat under the US Public Law 480 on rupee payment '-- and at relatively low prices because the country had no foreign exchange to buy food in the world market. Indira Gandhi had just become prime minister and chose to go to Washington on an official visit. Lyndon Johnson gave her a gushing welcome and responded to the food problem confronting her effusively, promising as many as 10 million tons of PL480 wheat. However, at an early stage the transaction turned sour.
Infuriated by India's criticism of American bombings of Hanoi and Haiphong in the course of the Vietnam War, the irascible Texan put food shipments on such a tight leash that India literally lived from ship to mouth. With every morsel we swallowed a little humiliation. When told that the Indians were saying exactly the same thing as the UN Secretary-General and the Pope were, Johnson had retorted: ''The Pope and the Secretary-General do not need our wheat.'' Many in India started demanding that we should say no to American wheat. Sensibly, Indira Gandhi said nothing. Privately, she told some confidants: ''If food imports stop, these ladies and gentlemen won't suffer. Only the poor would starve.''
Back to the present. Permit me to quote extensively from this Hindustan Times account, Panel to scrutinise impact of Russia sanctions on India's economy:
A top interministerial panel has been formed to scrutinise a barrage of economic sanctions imposed by the West on Russia following its invasion of Ukraine and their likely impacts on India's economy, an official familiar with the development said.
As the Ukraine conflict deepens, India has stepped up efforts to secure critical imports from Russia, particularly potassium chloride (popularly known as muriate of potash), a key fertiliser, and sunflower (edible) oil.
Led by economic affairs secretary Ajay Seth, the high-level panel also includes top bureaucrats of the ministries of food and consumer affairs, fertilisers, commerce, external affairs, agriculture and petroleum.
The panel is scouring for avenues to set up a rupee-ruble bilateral payment system to escape a wave of unprecedented sanctions on Russia, which have crippled the former Soviet state's financial system.
''Official talks with Russians will be needed to set up an alternative payment mechanism but the government will be given various options after a comprehensive review of the sanctions,'' the official cited above said, requesting anonymity.
India fears disruption to supplies of murate of potash ahead of its main summer-sown kharif season could hobble its farm sector, which is a major source of income for half of the country's population.
The war has caused oil prices to skyrocket and the rupee has hit a record low. Note that India still has a number of state-owned backs that could be used to implement any arrangements that might be devised. A private bank might be vulnerable to sanctions. Per the Hindustan Times:
The Russia-Ukraine conflict has already begun hurting Asia's third-largest economy, which had only started to revive after a pandemic-induced recession in 2020-21. On Monday, the rupee sunk to a record low to 76.9, falling 1% against the dollar as oil prices soared.
At least $400 million of payments and receivables by Indian exporters to Russia are now stranded because the sanctions have cut off Russia's ability to transact in dollars, the currency for international payments. Russian banks have been severed from a global payments highway known as SWIFT.
The panel has representatives from the Reserve Bank of India, which is looking to designate a smaller Indian bank with minimal exposure to dollar or euro transactions, where a Russian bank could open an account because the sanctions don't prohibit a rupee-ruble exchange system, the official said.
India had successfully used a similar payment system to pay for oil imports from Iran when that country faced sanctions from the West. At that time, the UCO Bank was set up as the main payment gateway.
An alternate mechanism for payments, however, is not easy to set up. While the idea is that a Russian bank will set up a so-called ''vostro account'' in an Indian bank and both countries will deposit a certain amount to guarantee for payments to importers and exporters, determining the rupee-ruble exchange rate will be a key challenge.
''One reason is that even if a rupee-ruble exchange rate is pegged to the dollar for determining a notional exchange rate, we must keep in mind that the value of ruble is continuously sliding vis-a-vis the dollar,'' said Amarendra Patil, a trade economist who formerly taught at the Indian Institute of Foreign Trade.
''This could make the payment system ineffective because of continuous erosion of one of the two currencies (ruble),'' he added.
There is urgency to agree viable arrangements, as planting season is '' or will soon be '' underway, and farmers need fertiliser. Per The Hindustan Times:
The government, which last week reviewed stocks of fertilisers, is scouting for alternative suppliers to fill the fertiliser gap at prices similar to those charged by Russians.
According to official data, 11-11.5% of total imports of edible oils and fertilisers are sourced from Russia-Ukraine region. The two countries also account for over 90% of sunflower oil imports. Within a basket of fertilisers India imports, Russia accounts for over 17% of MOP (muriate of potash) and 60% of NPK (nitrogen, phosphorus and potassium).
''In response, the government is identifying alternate supply sources for both edible oils and fertiliser, although these will be expensive,'' said Sonal Varma, an analyst with Nomura Holdings, a global financial advisory and securities firm, in a research note.
There are of course precedents for similar arrangements. In fact, India and the USSR set up one such arrangement during the 1950s, according toS Murlidharan writing in Northlines, Crisis as an opportunity: Rupee-Rouble trade should become template to break US hegemony:
The rupee-rouble exchange is not new. In 1953 Indo-Soviet trade agreement contemplated all payments in settlement of imports and exports between the two nations being made in INR. But this arrangement was dropped in 2005 when it resulted in Russia being saddled with enormous quantity of INR what with India being the net importer. However, the two nations once again embraced rupee payment for Russian export of S-400 Triumf air defence system in 2019 with the deal being for US 5.2 to 5,6 billion to escape sanctions by the US under its Countering America's Adversaries Through Sanctions Act (CAATSA). INR-Rial agreement with Iran similarly was to escape the American ire but had to be abandoned when the Trump administration extended the bar on its currency being used to a complete bar on import of oil itself from the Gulf nation.
The two governments are keen on INR-Rouble trade and the nuts and bolts of the arrangement would be announced soon hopefully. Indian exporters are in a quandary with Rouble testing new low every day. How to fix the price is the issue. Trade cannot come to a screeching halt. Russia's deputy chief of mission Roman Babushkin was quoted in news report three years ago saying that there had been a five-fold increase in payments in national currencies from about 6 percent to over 30 percent now. There should be no let up in this healthy trend except that war has queered the pitch with steep devaluation of the Rouble; thus calling for negotiations in a spirit of give and take to neutralise partially Russian currency's devaluation on the back of war and the Western boycott.
By institutionalizing INR-Rouble trade we would be sending a strong signal that the US dollar need not be invincible and unavoidable in international trade and payments. If more and more such agreements are signed between nation states, the world could well one day break free at least partially from the vice-like grip of the greenback on fortunes of other nations.
The Indo-Russian initiative should by no means be construed as acquiescence by India in the Russian expansionism and condonation of its warmongering. Rather it should be seen as pursuit of enlightened self-interest, both short-term and long-term.
Within India, there's broad political support for pulling away from Modi's previous policy of tightening ties with the U.S. The strongest criticisms '' actually, denunciations '' of U.S. policy I've seen in any mainstream English language television broadcasts are coming from India's Republic TV. I've found myself tuning in each evening to the nightly debates refereed by BJP mouthpiece Arnab Goswami. Refereed is the right word, as these debates generate lots of shouting. An appearance on Arnab Live is not for the faint-hearted '' nor, for that matter, is watching these slugfests. Goswami intervenes actively in the debate; he minces no words. And rest assured, he wouldn't say anything that's not consistent with the general contours of current Modi policy. If you'd told me a year ago that I would find myself tuning into a nightly Goswami broadcast, I would have told you you were mad.
But, here we are.

Idiocracy: CDC Lowers Expectations For Child Development, Raising New Questions for Parents | ZeroHedge
Sun, 13 Mar 2022 12:14
The move has generally been portrayed in the media as a positive adjustment, with claims that it provides clearer benchmarks and can help identify developmental delays early.
However, the update essentially moves the milestones later and later '' following a similar trend in academic standards across the nation.
Is this something to be celebrated, or is it one more example of lowering standards?
The supposed reasoning behind the update is that the earlier milestones used only 50th percentile data, which means that only half of the children were expected to reach them at a specific age.
The updated checklist moves milestones back so that 75 percent of children should reach them at a given age. One news report claims it's necessary for ''eliminating unnecessary confusion and alarm while ensuring children who need additional evaluation and resources are properly identified.''
What the article doesn't highlight, however, is that the changes effectively move developmental milestones to older ages.
An article from the American Academy of Pediatrics details the changes. In short, one-third of the original milestones were moved to different ages, and of those moved, just over two-thirds were moved to an older age.
In other words, the CDC is shifting developmental goalposts later and later for infants and young children.
One reason for moving the developmental goalposts may be the learning loss resulting from the COVID-19 pandemic.
Jaclyn Theek, a clinic director and speech-language pathologist at the Florida-based Speech and Learning Institute, has raised the alarm over the increase in babies and toddlers she is seeing with speech delays.
''We've seen a 364% patient increase in patient referrals of babies and toddlers from pediatricians and parents,'' she said.
Before the pandemic, only 5% of patients were babies and toddlers, she told reporters. Now it's 20% of her patients, with parents calling it ''COVID-delayed.''
Theek says the widespread use of face masks could be affecting children's speech development, as babies start learning how to read lips as young as 8 months old.
''There's no research out there yet saying that this could be causing speech and language delays. But, most definitely, I'm sure it's a factor,'' she said. ''It's very important that kids do see your face to learn, so they're watching your mouth.''
Other detrimental effects on children have included a decrease in academic performance after widespread remote and virtual learning options, which tend to hurt minority and low-income students hardest.
Even before the pandemic, however, the U.S. educational system was easing academic standards, often to the detriment of students: Just one example is Virginia, where the reading scores of fourth- and eighth-grade students dropped after the state loosened academic standards and accountability.
Even the Washington Post argued that easing these standards did not help children.
''Some critical (Standards of Learning) tests, such as fifth-grade writing, were eliminated; score standards were adopted that made it easier for students to pass; and changes in accreditation regulations let schools off the hook for their failures,'' the newspaper's editorial team wrote.
Instead of constantly adjusting developmental milestones and academic standards, parents and educators should question what's causing this downward shift in the first place.
Earlier critics of the U.S. educational system such as John Taylor Gatto predicted schools would never achieve the successful education of students without changing their current approach.
''No one believes anymore that scientists are trained in science classes or politicians in civics classes or poets in English classes,'' he said in a 1990 speech where he accepted the New York City Teacher of the Year award. ''The truth is that schools don't really teach anything except how to obey orders.''
Gatto said in his speech that U.S. students ranked ''at the bottom of nineteen industrial nations in reading, writing and arithmetic.''
Today's rankings aren't much better. The Programme for International Student Assessment (PISA) released a lackluster report in 2018, with the U.S. ranking roughly the same '' in the middle of the pack '' for all countries tested.
''The trend lines of United States' mean performance in reading since 2000, mathematics since 2003 and science since 2006 are stable, with no significant improvement or decline,'' the report concluded.
When viewed against the broader sweep of human history, the academic standards now in use are substantially lower than what was required in 20th-century American schools (this 1912 eighth-grade exam serves as an interesting example).
For too long parents have counted on so-called ''expert institutions'' such as the CDC and public schools to help us raise our children. However, current events have started exposing important flaws and concerns within the educational system.
Thankfully for many children, alternatives exist to the current public educational situation '' including the choice to homeschool. If the pandemic has taught us anything, it's that parents are better equipped to handle their children's education than they may have previously thought.
One of these parents is Tera Thomas, who withdrew her children to homeschool in Virginia after schooling went virtual in response to the pandemic.
''You just are kind of at the mercy of whatever they're choosing to do '' 'one size fits all,''' she said of her experience in the public schools.
Thomas chose to continue homeschooling even after in-person learning resumed.
''We wanted there to be more value in their education, more individualized (attention), more freedom to explore and do things,'' she said.
Like Thomas, an increasing number of parents are opting out of public education with its continually changing developmental and academic goalposts.
Instead of closing our eyes to the problems facing our students, let's choose to address them and raise the next generation of mature, responsible citizens who not only thrive, but also excel in the real world '' long after their schooling has ended.
Biggest Commodity Trading Houses In The West Continue To Buy Russian Oil And Gas | ZeroHedge
Sun, 13 Mar 2022 12:13
Despite headline-grabbing maneuvers by the big western oil giants (Shell, BP, Exxon-Mobil etc.) to simply walk away from certain Russian projects, commodity traders like Trafigura, Vitol and Glencore have all loaded cargos of oil, gas and fuel onto tankers at Russian ports, which is just the latest evidence that the west can't simply go without Russia's commodity wealth (as Chinese analysts have explained, Russia is one of the richest countries in the world when it comes to natural commodity wealth). And it's not just industrial commodities: the Middle East and Africa depend on exports of Russian wheat.
This commodity might is why Credit Suisse's Zoltan Poszar proclaimed this week that the new international financial order, which he called "Bretton Woods III" will be based around commodities and the currencies of the countries that export them.
It's also why the big commodities trading houses that we mentioned above have no plans to stop buying Russian oil or gas, as the Times of London explains.
Trafigura, Vitol and Glencore have all loaded cargos of oil products on to tankers in Russian ports this week, even as Russia's attacks on Ukraine intensified, shipping data shows.
The commodities traders have come under less scrutiny over their ties with Russia than the oil majors and have not made any commitments to stop buying Russian oil.
And even Shell, BP and the majors will continue to buy commodities from Russia, as they have already promised.
Shell is contracted to buy liquefied natural gas from Russian projects until 2035 and has given no timescale for its planned ''phased withdrawal'' from this. BP has pledged to quit its stake in Rosneft, the Kremlin-backed oil company, but is contracted to buy fuel from Rosneft in Germany and has said only that it is ''reviewing'' its commitments.
This might seem like a contradiction after the Biden Administration announced on Tuesday that Americans would face an immediate ban on new contracts for Russian oil, with a 45-day grace period for buyers to see out existing deals. The UK has made similar assurances as Ukraine has called for a global embargo on buyers of Russian oil and gas.
But the big commodity trading houses likely have contracts to continue buying Russian oil and gas for years, or even decades, hence. There's plenty of data to show that their Russian business has continued uninterrupted.
Many western companies have stopped buying oil and oil products from Russia voluntarily, but analysis of shipping data by SourceMaterial, an investigative journalism organisation, shows that commodities trading houses are still doing business there.
On Wednesday, an Indian-registered tanker, the JAG Laxmi, was docked at Taman in Russia on the Black Sea to take on a cargo of vacuum gas oil, a petroleum by-product. The tanker is understood to have been chartered by Trafigura and the cargo supplied by Rosneft.
At another Russian Black Sea port, Tuapse, Glencore was due this week to load a charter vessel, the Gulf Coral, with 60,000 tonnes of naphtha, the raw material for solvents, also from Rosneft. A similar Glencore cargo left Tuapse earlier in the week.
To be sure, there's no evidence to suggest that the three commodity trading houses have violated any sanctions.
SourceMaterial's data also shows that since the February 24 invasion Vitol loaded or was due to load seven cargos of oil products including diesel, naphtha and liquid petroleum gas, some of them from Rosneft. Vitol's cargos alone are estimated to be worth nearly $100 million.
There is no suggestion that the three traders have broken sanctions, but the disclosures highlight the extent of continued energy trade with Russia even as many companies in other sectors make immediate moves to cut ties.
Spokespeople for all three firms told the Times that they weren't in violation of any sanctions, and that they were continuing to abide by contracts signed long before the invasion of Ukraine began.
Iran nuclear talks stumble over unresolved Russian demands | Reuters

Register now for FREE unlimited access to Reuters.comVIENNA, March 9 (Reuters) - Parties trying to revive the Iran nuclear deal scrambled on Wednesday to resolve last-minute Russian demands that threaten to scupper negotiations, diplomats said, with the United States appearing unwilling to engage with Russia on the matter.
Western powers on Tuesday warned Russia against wrecking an almost completed deal on bringing the United States and Iran back into compliance with the 2015 accord. Iran's top negotiator returned to Vienna on Wednesday from consultations in Tehran.
Russia's envoy to the talks, Mikhail Ulyanov, dismissed any suggestion Moscow was holding up an agreement and said a final text had in any case not been completed.
Register now for FREE unlimited access to Reuters.comEleven months of talks to restore the deal, which lifted sanctions on Iran in return for curbs on its nuclear programme, have reached their final stages with several diplomats saying there was broad agreement.
But just as the final issues were being resolved, Russia presented a new obstacle by demanding written guarantees from the United States that Western sanctions targeting Moscow over its invasion of Ukraine would not affect its trade with Iran.
Ulyanov said Moscow's demands had not received a positive reaction.
"In view of the new circumstances and wave of sanctions against Russia we have the right to protect our interests in the nuclear field and wider context," Ulyanov said.
He said the United States and the European Union had to make it clear that neither now or in the future sanctions could hit the implementation of nuclear projects in Iran as well as its trade and economic relations.
Ulyanov met the coordinator of the talks, Enrique Mora of the European Union, on Tuesday evening and again on Wednesday.
He said he would still have to report back to Moscow for a final decision after the text was finalised.
"There is no final text so how can our position delay anything if final negotiations are not finished," he said.
"A number of participants at this moment are not ready to confirm that the text is fully acceptable to them."
U.S. Under Secretary of State for Political Affairs Victoria Nuland on Tuesday accused Russia of seeking to reap extra benefits from its participation in the effort to restore the nuclear agreement, but she said Washington would not be playing "Let's Make a Deal."
Two Western diplomats said it was still not clear what the exact nature of Moscow's demands were, while a European diplomat said Russia was demanding sweeping guarantees on trade between Moscow and Tehran, demands that were deemed unacceptable.
They said the talks were now not likely to end this week.
Mora broke off informal meetings on Monday saying the time had come for political decisions to be taken to end the negotiations.
European negotiators from France, Britain, and Germany had already temporarily left the talks as they believed they had gone as far as they could go and it was now up to the United States and Iran to agree on outstanding issues.
Iran's chief negotiator, Ali Bagheri Kani, returned to Tehran unexpectedly after Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov outlined Moscow's new demands. Iran's foreign minister said at the time that Tehran would not let its interests be harmed by "foreign elements".

US: Missiles fired from Iran hit near US consulate in Iraq | AP News
Sun, 13 Mar 2022 11:29
BAGHDAD (AP) '-- As many as 12 missiles struck near a sprawling U.S. consulate complex in the northern Iraqi city of Irbil on Sunday, in what a U.S. defense official and an Iraqi official said was a strike launched from neighboring Iran.
No injuries were reported in the attack, which marked a significant escalation between the U.S. and Iran. Hostility between the longtime foes has often played out in Iraq, whose government is allied with both countries.
The Iraqi official in Baghdad initially said several missiles had hit the U.S. consulate in Irbil and that it was the target of the attack. Later, Lawk Ghafari, the head of Kurdistan's foreign media office, said none of the missiles had struck the U.S. facility but that areas around the compound had been hit.
The U.S. defense official said it was still uncertain exactly how many missiles were fired and exactly where they landed. A second U.S. official said there was no damage at any U.S. government facility and that there was no indication the target was the consulate building, which is new and currently unoccupied.
Neither the Iraqi official nor the U.S. officials were authorized to discuss the event with the media and spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity.
Satellite broadcast channel Kurdistan24, which is located near the U.S. consulate, went on air from their studio shortly after the attack, showing shattered glass and debris on their studio floor.
The attack came several days after Iran said it would retaliate for an Israeli strike near Damascus, Syria, that killed two members of its Revolutionary Guard. On Sunday, Iran's state-run IRNA news agency quoted Iraqi media acknowledging the attacks in Irbil, without saying where they originated.
An Iranian spokesperson rejected the accusation that Iran was behind the Irbil attack. Mahmoud Abbaszadeh, spokesman for Iran's parliamentary committee on national security and foreign policy, said the allegation could not be confirmed so far.
''If Iran decides to take revenge '... it will be very, very serious, strong, obvious,'' he said in an interview with a local news website.
The missile barrage coincided with regional tensions. Negotiations in Vienna over Tehran's tattered nuclear deal hit a ''pause'' over Russian demands about sanctions targeting Moscow for its war on Ukraine. Meanwhile, Iran suspended its secret Baghdad-brokered talks aimed at defusing yearslong tensions with regional rival Saudi Arabia, after Saudi Arabia carried out its largest known mass execution in its modern history with over three dozens Shiites killed.
The Iraqi security officials said there were no casualties from the Irbil attack, which they said occurred after midnight and caused material damage in the area. They spoke on condition of anonymity in line with regulations.
One of the Iraqi officials said the ballistic missiles were fired from Iran, without elaborating. He said the projectiles were the Iranian-made Fateh-110, likely fired in retaliation for the two Revolutionary Guards killed in Syria.
Another U.S. official said in a statement that the U.S. condemned what it called an ''outrageous attack against Iraqi sovereignty and display of violence.''
U.S. forces stationed at Irbil's airport compound have come under fire from rocket and drone attacks in the past, with U.S. officials blaming Iran-backed groups.
The top U.S. commander for the Middle East has repeatedly warned about the increasing threats of attacks from Iran and Iranian-backed militias on troops and allies in Iraq and Syria.
In an interview with The Associated Press in December, Marine Gen. Frank McKenzie said that while U.S. forces in Iraq have shifted to a non-combat role, Iran and its proxies still want all American troops to leave the country. As a result, he said, that may trigger more attacks.'
The Biden administration decided last July to end the U.S. combat mission in Iraq by Dec. 31, and U.S. forces gradually moved to an advisory role last year. The troops will still provide air support and other military aid for Iraq's fight against the Islamic State.
The U.S. presence in Iraq has long been a flash point for Tehran, but tensions spiked after a January 2020 U.S. drone strike near the Baghdad airport killed a top Iranian general. In retaliation, Iran launched a barrage of missiles at al-Asad airbase, where U.S. troops were stationed. More than 100 service members suffered traumatic brain injuries in the blasts.
More recently, Iranian proxies are believed responsible for an assassination attempt late last year on Iraq's Prime Minister Mustafa al-Kadhimi.
And officials have said they believe Iran was behind the October drone attack at the military outpost in southern Syria where American troops are based. No U.S. personnel were killed or injured in the attack.
Al-Kadhimi tweeted: ''The aggression which targeted the dear city of Irbil and spread fear amongst its inhabitants is an attack on the security of our people.''
Masrour Barzani, prime minister of the semi-autonomous Kurdish-controlled region, condemned the attack. In a Facebook post, he said Irbil ''will not bow to the cowards who carried out the terrorist attack.''
Associated Press writers Lolita C. Baldor and Matthew Lee in Washington, Zeina Karam in Beirut, Amir Vahdat in Tehran, Iran and Jon Gambrell in Dubai, United Arab Emirates, contributed to this report.
This story has been corrected to show U.S. officials did not say the U.S. consulate had been been damaged.
Farm to Fork Strategy
Sun, 13 Mar 2022 11:27
The Farm to Fork Strategy is at the heart of the European Green Deal aiming to make food systems fair, healthy and environmentally-friendly.
Food systems cannot be resilient to crises such as the COVID-19 pandemic if they are not sustainable. We need to redesign our food systems which today account for nearly one-third of global GHG emissions, consume large amounts of natural resources, result in biodiversity loss and negative health impacts (due to both under- and over-nutrition) and do not allow fair economic returns and livelihoods for all actors, in particular for primary producers.
Putting our food systems on a sustainable path also brings new opportunities for operators in the food value chain. New technologies and scientific discoveries, combined with increasing public awareness and demand for sustainable food, will benefit all stakeholders.
The Farm to Fork Strategy aims to accelerate our transition to a sustainable food system that should:
have a neutral or positive environmental impacthelp to mitigate climate change and adapt to its impactsreverse the loss of biodiversityensure food security, nutrition and public health, making sure that everyone has access to sufficient, safe, nutritious, sustainable foodpreserve affordability of food while generating fairer economic returns, fostering competitiveness of the EU supply sector and promoting fair tradeThe strategy sets out both regulatory and non-regulatory initiatives, with the common agricultural and fisheries policies as key tools to support a just transition.
A proposal for a legislative framework for sustainable food systemswill be put forward to support implementation of the strategy and development of sustainable food policy. Taking stock of learning from the COVID-19 pandemic, the Commission will also develop a contingency plan for ensuring food supply and food security. The EU will support the global transition to sustainable agri-food systems through its trade policies and international cooperation instruments.
To enable and accelerate the transition to a fair, healthy and environmentally-friendly food system, advisory services, financial instruments, but also research and innovation are instrumental as they can help resolve tensions, develop and test solutions, overcome barriers and uncover new market opportunities.

EU Green Policies Back on the Table - The American Conservative
Sun, 13 Mar 2022 11:13
Europe's Green Deal is supposed to revolutionize energy and agriculture. Now, the continent can't afford it.

Russia's war in Ukraine has shaken every political consensus in Europe. Within weeks, Germany's Nord Stream 2 pipeline deal with Moscow was cancelled, and the principle of not sending weapons to war zones went out the window. Just three years ago, French President Emmanuel Macron called NATO ''braindead.'' Now, nobody in Europe is echoing this view. The same will happen with the European Green Deal, the mothership of Europe's environmental ambitions.
The Green Deal encompasses all the regulatory measures the E.U. envisages to reduce carbon-dioxide emissions. It has been spearheaded by France and Germany, the latter already having started its energy transition (Energiewende) in 2011. Since Berlin's radical decision to phase out nuclear power, Germany has experienced the highest electricity prices in the developed world, reduced competitiveness, and higher carbon-dioxide emissions as a result of increased reliance on coal and natural gas'--from Russia. Now that Moscow has plunged European diplomacy into chaos, its hand hovering over the gas lever, Germany is scrambling to find alternatives.
Germany's economy minister Robert Habeck'--incidentally a Green Party official'--did not rule out a delay to the phase-out of coal power and a halt to the phase-out of the three remaining nuclear power plants in Germany. Frans Timmermans, E.U. Commissioner in charge of the Green Deal, has also accepted that coal will remain an energy source for longer than Brussels initially anticipated. What is so striking about the European conversation is that practically nobody is talking about wind mills or solar panels, but instead countries are attempting to import more LNG (liquified natural gas) from Canada and the United States, max out the natural gas pipeline from Azerbaijan, or (in the case of the U.K.) argue to put a halt to bans on fracking.
Meanwhile, Italian foreign minister Luigi Di Maio has travelled to Algeria and Qatar to help ramp up alternative natural gas imports to the one Rome currently gets from Russia. Italian Prime Minister Mario Draghi had said in a recent statement that he regretted the choices that were made in the past, as Italy is one of the countries most dependent on Russian gas imports. Algeria, which currently supplies 11 percent of Europe's gas needs (a third of which goes to Italy), has said that it's ready to increase output by 30 percent in the short term. Tunisia and Libya in Northern Africa are also strategic partners for Europe to ramp up natural gas imports, as are Nigeria, Egypt, Mozambique, Tanzania, and Ghana for LNG shipments. LNG terminals in Europe were running at 45 percent capacity last year, with most of the infrastructure in Europe located in Spain. Europe would need significant investment, which will take time, to even get close to what it needs to substitute Russian natural gas.
Europe also faces considerable challenges in agriculture. The European Commission's ''Farm to Fork'' strategy seeks to reduce pesticides by 50 percent, devote 25 percent of agricultural land use to organic farming, and reduce fertilizers by 20 percent. Farming representatives have heavily criticized these plans, as they would tighten food supplies and increase dependence on imports. With sanctions on Russia severely disrupting the international food trade in fertilizers, can Europe afford plans to reduce agricultural output? Banking on organic food, which is notoriously under-productive, is unlikely to guarantee European food security. On Tuesday, that recognition came from the European Parliament's leading parliamentary group, the center-right European People's Party, calling for a moratorium on green agriculture policies.
A USDA study on the ''Farm to Fork'' plans found that the targets will lead to a reduction in productivity for wheat and oilseeds, as well as a reduction in E.U. exports. The strategy would also lead to a decline in agricultural production in Europe between 7-12 percent. Meanwhile, the E.U.'s decline in GDP would represent 76 percent of the decline in the worldwide GDP. Adding to that, the situation of food security and food commodity prices deteriorates significantly under a worldwide adoption scenario, as USDA researchers have found. The outlook of agricultural prices soars between 20 and 53 percent due to the package. The legislation should entice none of the lawmakers in Brussels'--and it appears that now it could be killed altogether.
Europe's green ambitions have met the harsh realities of geopolitics and the feasibilities of their environmentalist ideologies. Had it listened to partners on the heavy reliance on Russian gas, Europe could have prepared by reading the IPCC report and banking on nuclear power as part of the energy mix by allowing for modern agricultural practices to take root. This should serve as a wake-up call for those in the United States, who for years have applauded the European decarbonization and agricultural policy model as an example to follow for Washington.

Germany Is Debating How Much to Suffer Next Winter for Ukraine Without Russian Gas and Coal
Sun, 13 Mar 2022 11:11
On its face, the current state of affairs is absurd: The Western world and beyond have bent over backward to apply unprecedented economic sanctions on Russia to pressure Russian President Vladimir Putin into stopping its invasion of Ukraine. But at the same time, the very same countries spend about $1.1 billion a day on Russian hydrocarbons'--oil, gas, and coal'--which are Russia's most lucrative exports and about 14 percent of its GDP. Russia depends on energy sales to finance its 60-billion-dollar-a-year military and could not have conceivably, without this business, constructed the fighting force presently leveling Ukraine.
The moral dilemma is obvious. Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky has called for halting imports, as have many public figures in Germany and elsewhere. But it has also led to a debate about the strategic merits of suddenly cutting off Russian energy supplies'--a debate that is concentrated on Germany. The EU countries depend on Russia for 40 percent of their natural gas, 35 percent of crude oil, and 47 percent of coal. An abrupt cutoff would constitute a gigantic lurch into the unknown'--one that would have enormous repercussions for European industries and lifestyles, particularly in Germany and Central Europe, which are particularly reliant on Putin's pumps. That degree of dependence has produced clashing analyses in Germany about the best path forward and the costs for Germany's economy, foreign policy, and climate change politics.
The German government has insisted it will not consider an embargo of Russian gas and oil because the economic costs would simply be too high. But for a growing number of public figures and analysts, the strategic case is as clear as the moral one. Germany's Christian Democrat foreign-policy expert, Norbert R¶ttgen, argued: ''The war is a business model for Putin, and we are financing it! So what are we waiting for? How many bombed cities are enough? '... I am convinced that the oil and gas embargo will come.'' So flip the switch right now, he argued, before more people die.

How many bombed cities are enough? '... I am convinced that the oil and gas embargo will come.'' So flip the switch right now, he argued, before more people die.
Ever more European policymakers and experts are now considering what just a week ago sounded unhinged: terminating all energy imports from Russia. (Putin has also threatened to cut the supply from his end should the West not acquiesce to Russia's demands. The result, of course, would be exactly the same.) U.S. President Joe Biden took the jump first, announcing on March 8 that the United States would no longer shell out another dime for Russian gas and oil, which it buys on a much smaller scale than Europeans do: about just 8 percent of oil and other petroleum imports. Nevertheless, he warned, ''defending freedom is going to cost,'' a reference to the likelihood of yet higher gasoline prices. Europe's dependence on Russia, however, means its gamble is of an entirely different order.
R¶ttgen is still an outlier in his party on this issue. But a growing list of other figures and German and European think tanks argue that going cold turkey is doable and that Western Europe is prepared to weather the fallout. The German National Academy of Sciences Leopoldina, for example, argues that ''a stop of deliveries of Russian gas would be manageable for the German economy. '... Bottlenecks could arise in the coming winter. It would be possible to limit the negative effects and cushion the social impact by immediately implementing a package of measures.''
The first move'--whether the transition be cold turkey or long term'--is seeking alternative sources of natural gas and building up gas reserves for next winter. Gas, though, is far harder to come by than oil and coal and is particularly critical for Germany, which relies heavily on Russian gas to run its chemicals, plastics, fertilizer, concrete, and steel sectors. A third of German industries as well as half of all buildings rely on gas for heating and cooling. Experts say the obvious candidates for additional gas'--namely Norway, the United States, Algeria, Qatar, and Azerbaijan'--can probably chip in a little more, especially in terms of liquified natural gas (LNG), but not that much more, especially in the short term. They're basically selling everything they produce now. And Germany, for example, doesn't currently boast even a single LNG terminal.
Brand new EU guidelines will require that European gas storage facilities be at least at 90 percent capacity by the onset of next winter'--a viable but costly exercise. At current prices, this would run the bloc states at least $76.9 billion, compared to the price tag of $13.2 billion in past years. Michael Bradshaw, professor of global energy at Warwick Business School, said the all-out storage drive is highly speculative since ''this gas just doesn't exist right now. There's a good reason that our reserves were so low going into this winter. Natural gas is already in short supply and very expensive.''
But this stash, even if it were to materialize, which is anything but certain, would not last the entire winter. This means that even in the event of a successful scrambling for and distribution of extra gas supply in Europe, there'd be a 10 to 15 percent shortfall, according to a report by Bruegel, a Brussels-based think tank. Germany would experience the worst of it.
Analysts diverge on how this gap can be covered. Bruegel and other institutes and agencies modeling this scenario agree that the key for Europe would be to simply use less gas. This implies state intervention in the economy to manage demand, namely by prioritizing essential sectors, deprioritizing others, and regulating production times and goals. The International Energy Agency said ordinary citizens would have to turn down their thermostats by 1.8 degrees Fahrenheit; German experts think 3.6 degrees Fahrenheit would be more likely.
But Europe's energy supply consists of more than gas. Although renewable energy would be unable to take over immediately, aging coal-fired plants and nuclear stations could remain in service longer than currently planned. While R¶ttgen advocates exactly this and admits that Germany's emissions balance will become collateral damage, Leopoldina said a short-term hike in coal-fired generation for the purposes of power production could be counterbalanced by energy savings, shifting to electrical heating and pushing ever harder on clean energy expansion. Leopoldina, however, argues Germany's last nuclear plants lack the material, such as uranium fuel rods, to lumber on another year.
Bradshaw remains highly skeptical that Europe could respond so nimbly to a volte-face cutoff and warns that a worst-case scenario could land Europe where it found itself during the 1970s energy crisis: three-day production weeks, rolling blackouts, and energy rationing. Older people and those with low incomes would suffer disproportionately, he says. Germany is already feeling the pinch: automakers have periodically stopped production, gas prices have quadrupled, and industrial supply chains are being interrupted'--and that's with petroleum products flowing as freely as ever.
Such reservations are why some leaders, such as German Chancellor Olaf Scholz and German Economy and Climate Minister Robert Habeck, currently rule out the option of turning off the taps from one day to the next, preferring to keep the pipelines open and energy flowing as Germany weans itself off gradually over a period of years. A complete embargo, Habeck said, would cause ''a serious economic crisis,'' with mass unemployment and a recession even larger than during the pandemic. This, too, is the position of Germany's powerful industrial association, BDI, which warns in dire terms of skyrocketing prices, industrial stoppages, and commodity shortages.
Thus far, Habeck and EU climate chief Frans Timmermans see the shift away from gas not primarily as a rapid response means to eviscerate the Russian war effort but as a medium- and long-term way to fuse climate policy and energy security into one. In this vein, Germany just announced a whopping four-year, $219.8 billion budget top-up for the purpose of achieving energy independence from Russia, among other energy exporters, and finally putting Germany on a path to hit its own climate goals. The recipe is currently the same as the heart of Germany's decarbonization agenda (though minus Russian gas): namely the buildout of renewable energy; energy efficiency; and a high-tech, smart energy system based on electricity. Power will replace gas (faster than previously planned), and sun and wind will substitute gas, other fossil fuels, and nuclear power'--again, on a faster schedule. Biogas, a green waste-and-vegetation fuel, is back on the table again after falling out of favor for environmental reasons. There'll be much more cash for electric car charging stations, hydrogen technology, industrial modernization, clean energy subsidies, and support for low-income households facing high-energy costs.
Critically, and ever more controversially, Habeck underscored that his path to energy autonomy does not include prolonging the lifespans of either Germany's nuclear or coal plants. The former (there are only three left) will go offline at the end of this year, whereas coal generation should be phased out by 2030. These are Green Party, indeed German, principles that the centrist government pledges it will not tweak'--at least, not yet. In other words: Rescuing the climate will not be sacrificed by Putin's assault on Ukraine.
The EU is thinking along the same lines. On March 8, the European Commission published plans to cut the bloc's dependency on Russian gas by two-thirds this year and end its reliance on Russian supplies of the fuel ''well before 2030,'' Timmermans said.
In the end, it might just come down to how much more misery'--and how many more refugees'--Europeans, and Germans specifically, can stomach. After all, giving up new plastic products and wearing an extra pair of wool socks next winter wouldn't be too great a sacrifice for most Europeans, according to polls. But a dire economic crisis on top of two years of a pandemic would be another story.
A big bank is in trouble, and no one knows which one or why | American Banker
Sun, 13 Mar 2022 10:54
WASHINGTON '-- The Federal Deposit Insurance Corp. likely made a large addition to its problem bank list, experts say, as the agency reported a spike in troubled assets managed by firms in the fourth quarter.
The volume of assets held by banks on the FDIC's problem bank list '-- a tally of banks that received poor ratings from regulators '-- jumped by about $120 billion in the fourth quarter, according to the agency's fourth- quarter banking profile released last week. That's more than triple the previous figure of assets under problem banks, and it's the highest that asset number has been since the third quarter of 2013.
At the same time, the number of banks on that list declined by two, to 44.
''That suggests that regulators have some serious supervisory concerns about one of our larger banks,'' said Jeremy Kress, an assistant professor of business law at the University of Michigan's Ross School of Business.
The quarterly banking profile is meant to give the public a regular update on the state of the banking industry without divulging confidential information about individual banks. The FDIC declined to provide details on why the amount of assets on the problem bank list rose, but it said there was no change in methodology.
Firms end up on the problem bank list if they're rated a 4 or 5 according to the Camels rating scale '-- an internationally recognized methodology that assesses a bank's capital adequacy, asset quality, management, earnings, liquidity and sensitivity to stress.
''It feeds into this broader conversation that's been going on for a while now: Does it make sense that this whole thing is anonymous?'' Kress said. ''On the one hand, if you identify the bank, that bank will get pummeled in the market, but if you don't then it leads to speculation that will hurt a broader swath of firms.''
That relative lack of clarity has led observers to speculate on why the total amount of troubled assets jumped while the total number of institutions went down.
Kress, along with other bank policy experts, said the most likely scenario is that the FDIC added a bank with assets of around $120 billion to the list.
While this marked Martin Gruenberg's first quarterly banking profile back as head of the agency, Kress said the change most likely is not a reflection of Gruenberg's supervisory priorities. The problem bank list and ratings would have already been in motion well before former Chair Jelena McWilliams's exit in early February, he said.
A number of banks fall into the $120 billion-asset range, but not just any bank in that range might be suspect. Any bank in the process of finalizing a merger, for example, would likely have resolved any supervisory issues well before submitting a merger application.
It's also possible that the jump is not attributable to a single bank but multiple smaller banks. But that scenario is less plausible considering that the total number of banks on the list declined. The FDIC would also typically note any methodology or tax accounting changes that would cause the assets under problem banks to increase.
The figure previously spiked at the beginning of 2018, according to FDIC data, to $56 billion from $14 billion. The Wall Street Journal later reported that the Federal Reserve designated the U.S. arm of Deutsche Bank as being in ''troubled condition.'' The assets under troubled banks remained in the upper-$40 billion to mid-$50 billion range until the most recent reported quarter.
More broadly, the spike in assets dredges up concerns about weaknesses within the banking industry. Assets under problem banks haven't increased this much since the financial crisis, experts noted.
''Best-case scenario, this was an idiosyncratic problem that's not indicative of a broader industrywide trend,'' Kress said. ''But it's possible this is the tip of the iceberg, and we're seeing material weaknesses in risk management.''
The increase in troubled assets comes as the banking sector overall reported a mostly positive fourth quarter as firms released money they'd set aside for losses that never materialized during the pandemic. Profit increased 7.4% from the same time last year.
Lee Reiners, executive directly of Duke Global Financial Markets Center, said that, given the other information in the QBP, he wouldn't ''look at this one institution as a harbinger of things to come.''
''If what landed this institution on the problem bank list is something that other banks were engaging in, like lending to specific customers or a business line, then that would be very concerning,'' he said. ''But there's nothing else in this report that would reveal a systemic issue in the banking sector.''
Thomas Vartanian, executive director of the Financial Technology & Cybersecurity Center, said that while the increase in assets under problem banks ''indicates something to watch,'' it's ''not a huge problem in the context of all the other favorable numbers.''
Of course, any discussion is by definition speculative, and arguably with good reason. Reiners said that names on the problem bank list are kept private to prevent a ''self-fulfilling prophecy and trigger a run.'' But that opacity also means that healthy firms can be called into question without cause, he said.
''I feel sorry for similarly sized banks, but investors could go look at their balance sheets,'' he said. ''There's enough information out there for investors to look and cross names off the list, so it's probably an inconvenience, but it won't bring those banks down.''

WASHINGTON'--The Securities and Exchange Commission plans to propose rules mandating disclosure from publicly traded companies about climate change and associated risks in a meeting on March 21, the agency said Thursday.
The climate-change rules are among the most ambitious and closely watched items on SEC Chairman Gary Gensler's agenda. They are likely to require companies to report more standardized information about their greenhouse-gas emissions as well as climate-related risks they face now and in the future, Mr. Gensler has said.
Such vulnerabilities might include the potential for physical damage to companies' operations from floods, wildfires or extreme weather events and potential new regulations designed to curb global warming.
Companies are currently required to report risks they consider material, or likely to be important in the eyes of a reasonable investor, including those stemming from climate change. Mr. Gensler, who was nominated by President Biden, has said such disclosures vary from firm to firm and are of limited use to investors.
If a majority of the SEC's four commissioners vote to advance the proposal, the agency will take comments from the public, likely for at least 60 days, before moving to finalize a rule. The commission currently comprises three Democrats'--all of whom have advocated for a climate-change rule'--and one Republican, who has expressed skepticism.

Republican lawmakers have sought to discourage the SEC from pursuing enhanced reporting around climate change, saying the agency is stretching its mandates to protect investors and facilitate access to capital for growing companies.
The business community, meanwhile, is divided. Energy and transportation companies have been preparing to fight the new rules. Tech firms like Apple Inc. and Microsoft Corp. have said they support the initiative.

VIDEO - Vice President Harris says US backs Kiev 'in defense of NATO alliance' '-- RT World News
Sun, 13 Mar 2022 14:43
Ukraine is not a NATO member and Kiev has recently indicated it is now 'less passionate' about joining
US Vice President Kamala Harris has said that, by fighting Russia, Ukraine is defending the US-led NATO alliance in an apparent gaffe.
In a speech to the Democratic National Committee's (DNC) winter meeting in Washington, DC on Saturday, Harris argued that Russia's offensive in Ukraine ''threatens not just Ukraine's democracy'' but ''democracy and security across Europe,'' as well as overseas.
''The ocean that separates us will not leave us untouched by this aggression,'' Harris claimed, before seemingly suggesting that Ukraine is doing NATO's bidding.
"So I will say what I know we all say, and I will say over and over again: The United States stands firmly with the Ukrainian people in defense of the NATO alliance," she said.
However, the transcript of the speech released by the White House suggested that Harris misspoke with ''and'' being added before ''in defense of the NATO alliance.''
''The United States stands firmly with the Ukrainian people and in defense of the NATO Alliance,'' the transcript reads.
That did not stop the VP's critics on social media from accusing her of a foreign policy blunder. Some Republicans questioned whether Harris mistakenly believed Ukraine was a member of the alliance.
While Kiev was initially passionate about joining NATO, Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky indicated this week that he had become less interested in the idea, accusing the US-led military bloc of not doing enough to support Ukraine. NATO has previously rejected Zelensky's appeal for the establishment of a no-fly zone over the country, arguing it would drag the whole alliance into the conflict with Russia.
''I've become less passionate about this issue after we understood that NATO isn't ready to accept Ukraine,'' said Zelensky on Monday, accusing NATO of being ''afraid of controversial things and a confrontation with Russia.''
''I've never wanted Ukraine to be a country that is on its knees, begging for something. And we're not going to be that country,'' he added.

VIDEO - Survey reports high stress levels for Americans
Sun, 13 Mar 2022 14:09
Scroll though social media and you are likely to come across the war unfolding in Ukraine.
Step outside and mask signs mark a stark reminder of a waning pandemic that's claimed nearly a million lives in the U.S. in two years and taken a devastating toll on mental health.
Nineteen-year-old Leandra Padilla of Colorado says the pandemic increased stress and anxiety.
"I just kind of felt like I was drowning," they said. "I remember for a long period of time I was really depressed."
The war overseas is piling on to the mental health crisis.
Lynn Bufka, who is associate chief of practice transformation with the American Psychological Association, described the latest report released by her organization as the most alarming stress report in its 15-year history.
"We are concerned that mental health is worsening right now," she said. "The responses to the stressors connected to the invasion are the highest that we've seen for stressors in the history of conducting the Stress in America report."
The top sources of stress include a jump in prices due to inflation, supply chain issues, and global uncertainty. The survey also found a spike in fear and anxiety following the Russian invasion. This is on top of a prolonged pandemic
Sixty-three percent of adults reported that COVID-19 changed their life forever. Americans also noted widespread grief, a sense of loss, and continued hardship.
"I'm at a point where I can't pay my bills again; back working but it seems like you can't catch up," Detroit resident Charese Wilson said.
Experts say some people are enduring hardships but not coping, citing unhealthy behaviors like eater disorders, an increase in drinking and drug use
Joshua Gordon, the director of the National Institute of Mental Health, says there is a greater demand for help to cope with mental health issues like depression and anxiety.
"For example, overdoses due to opiates and other drugs have increased throughout the pandemic and don't yet show signs of going down," he said.
Gordon also cites an increase in child emergency rooms visits.
"We had a crisis in mental health care services for children before the pandemic," he continued. "There are simply not enough child-trained psychologists, psychiatrists, and other therapists. We need to train more of them. We need to expand access."
A 2021 survey conducted by APA found that 41% of psychologists were unable to meet the demand for treatment, which is a 36% increase from 2020.
Leandra has been waiting five months to see a therapist, explaining Medicaid options are limited.
"I can notice now, like I bottle up a lot of my emotions way more now and kind of let it explode, but then kind of push it back again," they said. "It's just been like a heavy cycle, and I have been really sick of it. I just want to talk to someone about everything that I'm feeling."
To help tackle the nation's mental health crisis, the Department of Health and Human Services is allocating $35 million to expand community mental health services and suicide prevention.
The APA study found Latino Americans and Black Americans reported a higher level of stress when it comes to money, the economy, and housing.

VIDEO - What to know about Daylight Saving Time
Sun, 13 Mar 2022 14:03
Only a few more days left of early sunsets. Daylight Saving Time is this weekend.
You will have to spring your clocks forward an hour on Sunday.
That hour is important to people in Florida and a growing number of people across the country who want to make Daylight Saving Time permanent.
In 2019, Florida voted to make that change but the state can't change it on its own without Congress' approval.
Florida is one of 19 states that want the change and another 22 states are set to debate the Sunshine Protection Act this year.
Germany became the first country to enact Daylight Saving Time and now 70 countries use it.
But critics say it increases energy use by about 1%.
The only states that don't use it are Hawaii and Arizona.
Also, numerous studies show the extra hour of sleep we lose by springing ahead causes a 24% increased risk of heart attack as well as an increased risk of stroke and seasonal depression.

Former Pfizer VP and Virologist, Dr. Michael Yeadon, is one of the most credentialed medical professionals speaking out about the dangers of the #Covid19 vaccines, yet it has fallen on deaf ears. With great honor, The HighWire gives Dr. Yeadon the floor to break down his ''list of lies'' that keeps him up at night, when it comes to lockdowns, masks, PCR testing, natural immunity, and why he thinks our health leaders have abandoned science and reason.

It only took one month for OSHA to reverse its reporting requirements for employers mandating Covid shots, in hopes they wouldn't be blamed for ''vaccine hesitancy.''

Government officials are finally beginning to dismantle these tyrannical mandates, but it has really been the pressure put on them by brave citizens like yourselves.

How a Shocking Aluminum Study Was Censored; Research Scientist Injured During Merck's Gardasil Trial; Prof. Chris Exley ''Aluminum is a Greater Threat Than Global Warming.''
At the center of the safety of vaccines is aluminium. Join the HighWire as we look at aluminium from the 13th Keele Meeting on Aluminium held in Mexico.
Scientists come together to look at the dangers of aluminium. Everything we use contains aluminium, so we need to make sure it isn't creating long term issues.
We interview Dr Lluis Lujan on the study he did around aluminium and pigs concerning vaccines and the causes vaccines containing aluminium had on these animals.
Dr Lujan's study was withdrawn before published. Today he is here to speak about his research.
In this episode, we speak to Sesilje Peterson, MSc, PhD about her experience of the Merck's Gardasil Trial. Prof Chris Exley joins to discuss aluminium and how it is ''a Greater Threat Than Global Warming''.
Here is some more information on aluminium:
Symbol: Al
Atomic mass: 26.981539 u
Atomic number: 13
Density: 2.7 g/cm"
Melting point: 1,221°F (660.3°C)
Discoverer: Hans Christian rsted
Did you know: Aluminum is used to make aluminium soda cans, which are easily recycled to make new things as well as used in vaccines.

THE MERCK INSIDER '-- HighWire Episode 121THE MERCK INSIDER '-- HighWire Episode 121
Topics covered: the definition of ''health'', Johnson and Johnson's new lawsuit and a Merck insider joins us to talk about vaccines.
On this edition of The HighWire, we are joined by Jorge Araujo, a former employee of Merck who discusses his experience within the company. Jorge explains to us the decision process he made NOT to vaccinate his children.
Working with vaccines, Jorge did some investigating after his wife fell pregnancy around 18 years ago and found not enough research behind the vaccines to vaccinate his children. So he never did. He also explains how others from Merck also didn't vaccinate their children. So why are we?
We also touch on the question ''what is the definition of healthy?'' According to pharmaceutical companies, managing diseases with multiple drugs is considered ''healthy''. We think it needs to be reassessed. The real definition of health is ''free from disease''.
Government officials are also willing to hold pharmaceutical companies accountable for the level of drugs on the market, however, as they say, ''vaccines'' are critical. What is the difference?
Johnson and Johnson have also recently been held responsible for their products after the word ''heroin'' has been related to the brand's products.
Watch for more information on these topics!

Experts worry a South African variant of #Covid19 could be resistant to the new Covid vaccines, highlighting the principal concern of studies from 2018 over a vaccine's ability to trigger pathogens to evolve.

#Covid19 cases are at record highs, reaching levels we've never seen before. Draconian public health measures, including mask mandates, remote learning, and the ordering of America's businesses closed ravaged the middle class, Governors and State Leaders have made the decision to open at the peak of the biggest spike in active cases we've seen yet.

The World Health Organization recently changed the definition of 'herd immunity' on their website by stating 'a population can be protected from a certain virus if a threshold of vaccination is reached,' and also went so far as to say that herd immunity is achieved by protecting people from a virus, not by exposing them to it. What prompted them to make this change? Take a look.
