Jacqui Heinrich Pins Jen Psaki Over Congress' Approval for Iran Deal

"It is shocking to me That this administration is so out of it And what about Congress's approval Cut 6 go Iran nuclear agreement review act says the Congress is required to review any new agreement This is obviously not the same agreement that Obama worked on in 2015 Does President Biden believe that this treaty needs the advice we can send Congress and if so does he believe he has the votes to lawfully affirm it Well if and when we have a deal and we don't have a deal at this point otherwise you would all know We would care for you That's not what she's asking yet We don't need your starkey dumbass comments That's not what she said She said what's the process here Go ahead Some circumstances of any U.S. return to the JCPOA to determine the legal implications including those under the Iran nuclear review act of 2015 And we're committed to ensuring the requirements are satisfied so certainly we would abide by that But we have been keeping a member's very updated We've been briefing No you haven't been keeping members very updated Most of Congress has no idea what you're doing Most of the Arab states have no idea what you're doing The Israelis have mostly no idea what you're doing And we the American people we have no idea what the hell you're doing

Yes, Something Bad Is Happening in Ukraine. But What About the US?

"It's amazing to see how the media continues to kind of be a 24/7 network around this. We're not getting calls back from the Saudis. We're asking Venezuela for oil, Macron is meeting with Putin, not Biden, Iran is wiping the table with us and the JCPOA two talks. We have a hundred and a 100,000 dead mostly young people from fentanyl, our southern border is wide open, we have double digit inflation minimum, 24,000 homicides last year, 24,000 homicides happening in our inner cities. Our educational literacy rates are going down is the most depressed, suicidal, alcohol, alcohol addicted, drug addicted, anxious and Medicaid generation in history. Yet I have to be lectured about our leaders that the American thing to do is to go and force a no fly zone 5000 miles away because something bad is happening. I get it. Something bad is happening. Vladimir Putin is evil. I agree. Something bad is happening here as well. Why are our priorities so upside down? Why do we get out of our chair enthusiastically and go buy a Ukrainian flag to go fly outside of our home and yet the kind of destruction and deterioration of our own citizens this kind of makes sense whatever kind of scoff at it. The same Americans by the way, the same leaders, by the way, who just lecture us last two years. It's the American thing to go get vaccinated and go stay at your home. Stay at home and be locked down. Why do you want to ignore our own problems? And you put all of that together, no one has yet to answer the question. Okay, the house is on fire. Fine, I'll take the analogy. We don't know what we could do about it, but do we even have the competent fire department to put out the fire? No. You know what they would do? The house is on fire. The fire department that we are calling, they bring out their hose, they open it and out comes gasoline.

The Biden Administration's Political Problem With Oil Production

"Now, Wendy Sherman coming on Fox News Sunday is good. I'm glad that she did. But as you pointed out, she did the 94 deal with North Korea. She did the 2015 JCPOA, former head of anneliese list. She speaks in that kind of Aspen institute, Davos speak, that never makes any sense to me. At the end of that conversation, do you think you're any closer to the modus, the motive that is animating team Biden here? That's a great question. I mean, I tried to ask different things different ways so that the audience could see how there's kind of a confliction here. And I think it's clear, but at some point you have to stop asking the question because the answer coming back is roughly the same. I do think that they politically, on a foreign policy issue, just have a really tough hand to defend. You know, not doing domestic production going after Venezuela, signing this Iran deal in part because of the oil, but also obviously the nuclear part of it. I thought the other scary answer was is the better than 2015 or as good as 2015.

"To Mark loving show where we create the talking points call in now 877-381-3811 And we are talking to senator Lindsey Graham about matters of life and death and war and peace Lindsey Graham nuclear weapons and I would add Iran What's your take They're going to try to get one unless somebody stops them I have no confidence that the Biden administration has the ability to do it I do believe Israel would go to war to stop the Iranian nuclear ambition They're not trying to build a peaceful nuclear power program They're trying to build a bomb If you believe they're trying to build a peaceful nuclear power program you shouldn't be allowed to drive in any state in the nation So it's falling on Israel to do a deal with Iran in the middle of business with the insane And I afraid But that's where they're heading senator So the JCPOA round one was terrible It allowed enrichment and it had a sunset clause It will not be stronger and longer as a town It will be shorter and weaker So let me just say this A couple of rules to live but I don't drink and drive And never get to the left of the French on foreign policy So what did the French say when Putin threatened nuclear weapons We have nuclear weapons too So I'm tired of living my life Under the fear of a dictator threatening to use weapons if we do what is required to make the world a better place If he tried to use nuclear weapons I think somebody would shoot him in the head I don't believe the Russian people are suicidal And at the end of the day we can not be intimidated to do what is necessary and right Because of the threats of this guy And if the Iranians are going to get a nuclear weapon they will use it The difference between Putin and the tower is that Putin is kind of a nut and he's a dog and a thief and an evil guy The eye tola is a religious Nazi compelled by Allah to kill the Jews and the infidels So if you ever got a weapon he would use it A 100% And then the insanity goes further doesn't it Because Biden has Putin effectively negotiating the nuclear deal with the Iranians Now how insane is that So he makes Chamberlain look like Churchill So in the middle of a conflict where you have a Russian dictator whose ruthless dismembering and democracy you want to cut all off the Putin to hurt his war machine You replaced it all by enriching a religious Nazi called the I tola with more money and revenue from oil and gas is literally the dumbest thing in the history of the world What's the wild card it is reliant on Israel in a couple of weeks The Israelis are working on red lines for the Iranian nuclear program The JCPOA will allow the Iranians to enrich the inspection regime will be a joke and there will be sunset clauses where it just eventually goes away I'm going to work with Israelis to create guardrails on the Iranian nuclear program if they cross lines have been enrichment weaponization The use of missile technology that all bets are off We've got to tell the Iranians what they can't do And I'm going to work with Israelis to sit red lines for the Iranian nuclear program to tell them what they can't do And if they cause these lines all bets are off And yet the bidens put in the shoulder on the Israelis to keep quiet The Israelis are in a world of hurt There are best ally in the region There are eyes and ears in the most troubled region of the world They are democracy We have shared values They have a great military They share their technology The Ayatollah is a religious Nazi Putin is a thug North Korea is a mafia state in China Just a bad actor The Iranians are different They're compelled by a religious view to act on their religious beliefs and their religious beliefs require them to create a certain level of chaos So that their missing email will come back and win the day So they want a nuclear weapon the Iranians do to use it I really do believe that North Korea is not going to attack American tomorrow They may sell the technology But I think if the Iranians had a nuclear bomb they would use it against Israel the one and only Jewish state and against Arab Sunni Arabs are mortal while enemies So we live in the most incredible dangerous time since the 30s and the people in charge of our government do not understand the people that we're dealing with They don't understand Putin They don't understand tea and they don't understand the itola And in the meantime senator Graham we are not building up the United States military like it needs to be built up I mean spending trillions in China's massive debt and the only the only department that's not getting the funds that had actually is the Defense Department Well it's funny you mentioned that we're having a real hell of a fight about the 2022 budget The Biden budget increased defense spending by 1.4% well below inflation Increased non defense spending by 13% So when he put his budget out he saw domestic spending at 13% being necessary Military spending being below inflation is okay President Biden has been wrong for 40 years about what it takes to keep America safe Their budget is a nightmare for the military Thanks to Mitch McConnell and Shelby and McCarthy We're going to add $45 billion to the defense budget hopefully in the next couple of days The next 2023 budget It better be well more than inflation because you got hypersonic weapons being developed by China You've got a deepwater navy being developed by China Al-Qaeda and ISIS are still alive and well roaming around out there and you've got a ambitious Iran trying to break out I think in a new now what do the Israelis need They need refueling capability and they need bunker busters and the Biden administration is not giving the Israelis what they need to defend themselves against a nuclear armed Iran And they're not all in and helping the Ukrainians depend themselves against the Russians We live in very dangerous times and that's one of your program is so important We may have our differences but 90% of the time we agree I miss Ronald Reagan I miss Donald Trump and I appreciate you being on the air telling it as it is The world as it really is rather than wishing it to be something is not Wow that's very kind of you Now I appreciate that And this is very very important Well it's very kind of you I really do appreciate that This issue of our military though is very very troubling because as you point out the Chinese are on the move the Russians are on the move the Iranians are on the move What kind of a country Check that What kind of a government fails to protect its country What kind of a what kind of a government You unilaterally attacks its own energy system Undermines its own military by not strengthening it and has borders wide open What kind of thinking is this People are out of touch with the threats we face from World War I to World War II That period of time there are a lot of decisions made by democracies to disarm They had probably 5 or 6 locations to stop Hitler and we linked every time So this administration is more worried about climate change than they are about energy independence They are an unreliable ally What started food and thinking about invading Ukraine was Afghanistan I have along with you and a few others been arguing that we needed a residual counter terrorism force to stay in Afghanistan If we ever pulled the plug on the face I Al-Qaeda ISIS and Taliban would take over They did It's just a matter of time to some of these tariff sales penetrate our country to a broken southern border and kill a bunch of Americans God I hope I'm wrong But the Chinese are modernizing their military to very rapid pace we're following behind in the hypersonic missile race And the military budget presented by the Biden administration's woefully inadequate when it comes to the Ukraine They're doing the.

Biden's Nuclear Negotiator Robert Malley Weighs Lifting Iran Sanctions

"Andrew we got. I mean, there is this negotiation that's happening. I mean, we touched on it before, but there is basically Robert malley, who is the U.S. special envoy to Iran, is currently in Vienna, and apparently the negotiation is going so poorly about the. So he negotiated the JCPOA in 2015. So he is the guy that basically was responsible for the document that Trump came in ripped up and got the United States out of the Iran nuclear deal, right? It was an unbelievably bad dude. Yeah, it was an unbelievably bad deal. Well, guess what? He's at it again. So when we talk about our elites failing us, when we talk about how America deserves better, at least, at least we like to think we deserve better elites. He's at it again and he's in Vienna and basically there's a substack from Melanie Phillips. She published it 21 hours ago. She basically says that it's going so poorly that she was, you know, she felt obligated to write this and that she had permission from some people on the ground. This is all happening while we're worried about Putin launching nuclear weapons. Like, oh, let's go give another authoritarian nuclear weapons in the Middle East. Yeah. And so she highlights a Twitter thread from Gabrielle norona that says one, my former career at the State Department NSC and EU colleagues are so concerned with the concessions being made by rob malley in Vienna that they've allowed me to publish some details of the coming deal in hopes that Congress will act to stop capitulation. What's happening in Vienna is a total disaster, one warned, the entire negotiations have been filtered and essentially run by Russian diplomat, Mikhail ulyanov, the concessions and other misguided policies have led three members of the U.S. negotiating team to leave. They're basically stripping away different sanctions of all of these leaders within Iran, including the Iranian military that has murdered people all around the world, apparently, according to this thread, we're about to be not only in a geopolitical cluster in eastern Ukraine and Russia, but we're also going to have Taiwan coming on board. And now we've got basically JCPOA number two. So

"And the east med pipeline. A lot of people don't realize one of the things that the Biden administration did was to kill it. Yeah, the Biden administration has done a whole series of things, which are antithetical to the best interests of Israel. And that's one of them withdrawing its support for this pipeline in January. But I think we should focus on Iran. I mean, there we are with president Trump having finally got out of the JCPOA. I mean that the so called Iran deal and Iran being an existential threat to Israel. And the lead state sponsor of terrorism. And the Biden administration, instead of focusing on strengthening the Abraham accords between Israel and some of its Arab neighbors who understood that the best interests of humankind was to recognize the Jewish state and to do business both emotionally and economically with it. Instead has busy empowering Iran.

Why Would Biden Lift Sanctions on Iran? Kevin McCullough Explains

"Day. What else is on your mind? Well, you mentioned in the last segment about this idea of doing things for the appearance of doing them. And this has become the standard mode of operation. And I wanted to just give you an example of that from this last week on the foreign policy front. We talked about it in the COVID context, but last week, Joe Biden's State Department lifted sanctions against the terrorists that are running Iran. Now, you may be asking yourself the question, well, why would they do such a thing? And in fact, much better people than me are asking that question right now. But what Antony Blinken said when he was asked as to why they lifted these sanctions against Iran, his answer was more or less because they'll get up and walk away from the table if we don't. Now let's examine what they're sitting at the table negotiating. The Biden administration has made it a point to try to reinvent and re-engage Iran into a new version of what was called the JCPOA, the Iran deal. The non proliferation agreement that supposedly was going to keep Iran from gaining nuclear weapons. The only problem was, as president Trump pointed out, in the original JCPOA, it actually gave Iran the green light to go get nuclear weapons. And to basically sheriff themselves on whether they were going to be held accountable for doing the things they were supposed to do or not. In the new version, they don't want any of the sanctions that were put on them as a result of violating the JCPOA and so Antony Blinken said will lift them. But I want to get down to an even more bare nugget of this truth. In speaking with foreign policy people like Katie McFarland and general Jack Keenan in the last few days, neither side of this agreement want to be in the agreement. The Americans don't believe that the Iran deal will be followed by Iran. And Iran doesn't want to be in the Iran deal either. They are having to be brought to the table to talk about an agreement that neither of them want to be part of, neither of them believe Iran will keep it. And neither of them believe that it will actually prevent Iran from getting nuclear

"Many things I'd like to talk to you about. Let's for once on the record, talk about this thing that clearly, whatever happens in Russia, this administration is still obsessed with Iran still obsessed with Obama's JCPOA Iran deal, which for me was the proudest moment of our administration where Steve Bannon and myself managed to create the conditions for the president to kill the deal. Why is it that great? Oh my gosh. When he called us into the oval with the rest of the cabinet members there, who were pro Iran deal and said, okay, he called us his heavies. And he said, Steve said, explain why I need to kill this. And we had a great session that the president killed it. It was wonderful. Why is it so bad? And will you explain why it didn't, in fact, stop Iran getting nuclear capability? It doesn't do. It doesn't. Not at all. Not at all. It leaves in. So the theory of the JCPOA is that is that it blocks all paths to a bomb and it keeps them one year away from being a threshold state meaning having enough fissile material to build a bond. It doesn't do that. If you look at the terms of it, all the restrictions melt away over time. Right. So they got the ten years they do whatever they want. They do. Exactly. And so they can continue to blackmail us with their with their with their quasi nuclear status or their threshold status. And then it lifts all those sanctions. And so it makes them flush with cash, which they can use to fund their proxies, who are attacking our we're attacking our allies. Like right now, we're seeing them they're attacking well through their proxies through the Houthis are attacking the UAE. Do you think the disastrous evolution of events in Ukraine could put a break on the JCPOA deal being resuscitated? I think it's going to make it harder. Because it depends on the mood in the it depends on the mood in the country. But I believe it will. There are a lot of people on our side who are saying to hell with Ukraine. What do we care? And so on. I think that's the wrong way to look at it. Can you give us your response to that? Because we see it every day on my social media feeds. Who cares? Blah, blah, blah. How about the southern border? Can you give us your response back? Well, it doesn't stop with Ukraine. Anyone who, when people say, when people say, oh, we should he's traditionally Russia has been the dominant power there and we don't want to Tucker Carlson said, what if trying to put their military in Mexico and so on? That's not the issue for Putin. Putin doesn't feel threatened by NATO. Part of what he's doing in the Ukraine is showing just how divided NATO is Germany's on the side of his side and this thing. It's what he doesn't want is an independent Ukraine right next to him because that's going to undermine his regime. He's going to influence people in Russia. Exactly. And he's got and it doesn't stop with Ukraine. After Ukraine, it's going to be the Baltic states. NATO nations. As well, as far as he's concerned. But again, let me, by the way, in the negotiations, he made that clear. Because he said, I want you to go back to 1997. Bulgaria is mine..

Iran and Other Enemies Are Watching the Biden Admin's Vulnerabilities

"I think Iran and all of our enemies are watching Ukraine right now and are drawing lessons about the infirmities of the Biden administration in response to the Ukraine attack. Do you believe that our enemies around the world are watching right now? What we do, Vis-à-vis Ukraine's vulnerability. They're absolutely watching. Just as they watched our ignominious surrender and botched withdrawal in Afghanistan. And then in some cases, in the case of the Chinese Communist Party, explicitly used it as a propaganda weapon in order to weaken the resolve of some of our allies and cause them to question America's willingness to fight and alongside them and defend their interests as well as our own interests. So absolutely they're watching. And as it pertains to Iran, something to watch, it really concerns me, if you follow the Iranian press, there's been some gloating coming out of the regime right now, which suggests to me that there may be an interim agreement half resuscitation of the JCPOA that we can expect soon, which would be an absolute disaster. Another tranche of trillions of billions of dollars in sequestered funds. And Wendy Sherman's going to blame Donald Trump for that.

I'm joined by Michael Lauren now. You can follow him on a doctor or DR Michael orin on Twitter. Good morning, Michael. How are you? I'm good. I'm not optimistic that this administration will do anything serious about Iran, are you? I would doubt it. I would doubt it. Maybe I'd be pleasantly surprised. I mean, it's kind of clear that this administration doesn't have a military option. President, even president Obama used to say, all options are on the table, including a military option, the current administration says it talks fails. We'll look at other options, but they never said a military option. I agree. Yesterday, president Trump on this show said that Iran would have buckled on the first day of a new term for him because they were close to crumbling. Do you agree with that assessment? Well, I know for a fact that the major violations of the JCPOA did not occur under the Trump administration after 2018 when we pulled out of the Jaco. The major fire ending violations only began when it was clear that there would be a different administration at The White House. And that that administration was committed to going back to the JSON POA. And not seeking not basically trying to replace it with a much better deal. So the Iranians knew that they could ratchet up the pressure, and that the administration would basically keep on going after the volume. It's quite a spy that finally will be the Americans walked away from the table during the first time they've walked away from the table. We've had a situation where in this case the. Customer has been running after the merchant of the merchant running that's the customer. And running simply ratchet up the price every time. Did you see what they do

"Enrichment program in exchange for the lifting of many economic sanctions. As those sanctions came back into force, Iran got right back to work enriching uranium, edging ever closer to real weapons capability. In the meantime, the diplomacy hasn't gone anywhere. But after the first day of this week's negotiations, things were all smiles, and idiot, deputy secretary general of the EU's foreign service summed up the mood. And there is clearly a will of the Iranian delegation to engage in serious work and bring discipline back to life. So I feel I feel positive that we can be doing important things for the next weeks to come. There's a glimmer of hope there, but there's also still a long way to go. The first day of negotiations seemed to end on a positive note, which is actually pretty surprising. I mean, I think the mood going into these talks was pretty pessimistic. Roger mcshane is our Middle East editor. The administration of Joe Biden had thought it was close to restoring the JCPOA early this year, then that would change with the election of Abraham raisi, who's a hardliner. So, you know, I think people went into Vienna with pretty low expectations and surprisingly the first day has been rather positive. In what sense of what's what's being kicked around? Well, you're just seeing a lot of positive noises from people coming out of the top to people smiling, people saying, we've made some progress now lacuna is what that means. It's been one day of negotiations. And they're dealing with a lot of complicated stuff. I mean, you have a whole host of sanctions that America has heaped on Iran essentially cutting it off from the world economy. Iran wants those undone. And then you have the progress that Iran has made with its nuclear program. I mean, it's been doing things like testing events centrifuges hampering international inspections and most importantly increasing in stockpile of enriched uranium and well-being on the limit set in the original deal. And on top of that, it's just enriching that uranium to 60% purity. And that's a level that's usually only reached by countries that want to make bombs. So to put that on the perspective of the JCPOA, that deal was meant to keep Iran always at least a year away from what they called breakout. The point in where Iran had enough material for a bomb. Now it's somewhere between a few weeks and a few months away. And so what's actually being discussed in Vienna then just a return to the JPA as we understood it or something new altogether. Well, I mean, I think expectations are so low that America would be very happy to return to the JCPOA. Now, America is not directly involved in the talks there on the sidelines, but they're getting their message across via the Europeans. One way to look at a wrongs moves, it's sort of advancements in its nuclear program is as a way to gain leverage in these talks. And while you get some Iranian officials who say they're not averse to returning to the old deal, most are talking pretty tough, you know, they've demanded three main things for America. They wanted to admit wrongdoing in ditching the original deal. They wanted to immediately lift all sanctions on Iran. And they went to America to guarantee that any new agreement will last beyond Joe Biden's term. In other words, a future U.S. president of future Trump won't pull America out. This could all be busted. This could all be an attempt to drive a hard bargain in Vienna. But publicly Iranian officials have shown little interest in returning to the old deal or even conducting the kind of detailed negotiations that might produce a new one. So the fact that everyone walked out of the meeting today and was looking sounding very positive and, you know, that's pretty surprising. You've laid out what it is Iran would like from America who's it must be said not in the room. What is America's stance at this stage? Well, you know, the conditions laid out by Iran are impossible for America to meet. Start with the guarantee that the deal won't be ripped up by the next president. In order for that to happen, you need to turn the deal into a treaty, which would require approval of two thirds of the Senate, and that's just not going to happen. And neither is American and going to lift all of its sanctions on Iran because many of those sanctions have nothing to do with the nuclear program. They're related to Iran's sponsorship of terrorism. That's a non starter. But it sort of leaves the path forward unclear. Biden had hoped to simply sort of reenter the old deal before negotiating what he called a quote unquote longer and stronger deal. That also seems very unlikely at this point. And it's gotten to the point where America and its allies in much notably Israel. They're talking about plan B's, which is really just another word for sabotage and the tax on Iran's nuclear program. You've spoken extensively of what Iran wants and where that fits in with what America wants. What about the rest of the international community? They're being European powers, Britain, France, Germany, who are all signatories to the original deal they're working hard to get it restored, and they've tried to keep it alive all these years after America pulled out. They're really the ones doing the hard work in Vienna. Then you have China and Russia who are also seeing the Tories. They don't really have an interest in Iran gaining a nuclear weapon, but they probably don't mind watching America's squirm a bit. They have their own interest in the Middle East. Many of Iran's neighbors in the gulf. A lot of them oppose the original JCPOA. I think a lot of them have also now come around to it. But look, everyone knows that the real wild card in all this is Israel. It views Iran's nuclear program as an existential threat. And it says it's going to feel free to act no matter what happens in Vienna. For the past few years, it's been engaging in a shadow war with Iran. It's killed. It's nuclear scientists. You have Israeli officials saying they've developed weapons such as bunker busting bombs that could penetrate into their program, and then they would sort of obviate the need to rely on America to help out with any attacks. See, look, Israel is basically saying we can act, we can act alone, and we might act alone if things keep moving in the wrong direction. So the rhetoric kind of from all sides doesn't match all of those smiling faces coming out of the first day of talks. I mean, how to read what's going to happen for mean, I think before today, you would have thought that a deal was very unlikely or at least not an expensive deal. I think the best hope that a lot of people I was that some sort of interim deal could be reached, something that sort of froze Iran's nuclear program, froze its production of enriched uranium and America would ease some of its sanctions in return. And the idea was sort of you'd buy time for a broader negotiations. People sound positive today. Perhaps something more expansive is possible. But Joe Biden had hoped not only to jump back into the JCPOA but to negotiate what was often called a more for more deal. This is that longer and stronger deal. And going into Vienna, it was looking like a less for less dealers with this sort of highest hope you could have. There's also the separate question of whether the JCPOA is even worth restoring. And this is something that American officials have talked about. For one thing, parts of it expire in 2025, and the whole thing ends in 9 years time. Eventually, Iran's nuclear program will have made too many advances to safely return to the old deal, rum malley, America's chief negotiator on put it well when he says that you're not really dealing with a chronological clock.

"I know that this is something that's gotten a lot of attention in Israel has gotten next to none here in the United States. Adam credo reporting yesterday that U.S. Iran envoy Robert malley, whose name is very familiar to those of us who follow these things, says that the Biden administration is preparing for, quote, a world where Iran doesn't have constraints on its nuclear program. Comments that show how little progress has been made in negotiation with Tehran regarding a return to the JCPOA the 2015 Barack Obama ran deal. Doctor Oren, I mean, if that deal had remained in place, we'd still be dealing with in Iran didn't have any constraints on its nuclear weapons program. I mean, I think that that's one thing that should be said right off the bat. That deal wasn't going to prevent Iran from creating nuclear weapons. It only it only had a ten year pause in it, maybe. And that's only if you believed Iran was complying with it. Yes, that's true. It was ultimately going to his line was ultimately going to have an unlimited nuclear program. The big difference was that while it restrained itself somewhat, and some aspects of the program, just on the nuclear enrichment, not a missile development, not on the development of advanced centrifuges, not on developer warheads, didn't do anything about any of that. But when I was going to get paid a 100 billions of dollars that it wasn't going to spend on schools and hospitals, you can believe that. I think the major thing that rob valley is saying, believe it or not is the truth and the truth that has been around for a long time. I've been talking about on these really news. And that is the United States is willing to coexist with an Iran that has threshold capacity. I mean, the ability is created a bomb within a matter of weeks, because you've been a matter of days. Among the professionals, if referred to as Japan like capabilities, there's Japan has that capability, but of course, you can't threaten to wipe anybody off the map or is not supporting financial payers. Big difference. America, that's what's important Biden or other Americans as they say, you know, Iran will never get a bomb on our watch. Yeah, but do they have the ability to make one real quickly? So America may be just for the threshold capacity law. If you can like people honestly will, but as you can simply can, every single war with Hamas, Iran can have threatened to break it out, and this could be a huge constraint on our ability to defend ourselves. And I definitely won't even get a bomb. It won't be satisfied with threshold capacity. Well, doctor ordon, I mean, the problem here is multi fold, really. First off, Iran's IRGC having a nuclear weapons is one concern. But the bigger concern I think, especially for Israel is that Hezbollah and Hamas will get nuclear weapons clandestinely and deploy them without Iranian fingerprints on them. And I mean, there are literally on your doorstep, Iran is at least some distance away. That's, I think the biggest concern am I correct about that? You are correct. So Iran can hit the threshold capacity. Maybe it doesn't break out. But it could pass on nuclear technologies to its proxies to his ball of the Hamas. They could develop for what we know tactical nuclear weapons. And right on our order. In reality, well, we don't have a nuclear weapon. These guys, hey, we don't have anything to do with these guys. And that was just real with an existential threat. So Iran having a threshold capacity is just intolerable for this country. And it's interesting yesterday, the foreign minister Europeans met with 20 blank in the Secretary of State. And he was up front about it because we will not let Iran have a threshold for that to the English line. Quite say that. He said that all Washington could be on the table. He did not repeat what signal and you would also say was that all optimism. Administration does not say that anymore. And he's actually pressed by a journalist blinking was to save the options include a military option. He does the question. Well, that doesn't surprise me. What's the debate been Israel on this? Clearly, the American media is not doing a great job of covering this particular development, but in Israel, I know they're very concerned. What's the debate been like there about what the options are? It's not even a debate that the truth is really focused on other things. I'm running for being the head of the Jewish agency, the largest Jewish philanthropy in the world. That is from page news every day. No one has wants to be think about the Iranian issue. Press conference yesterday. I thought it was hugely significant. Hugely significant. Maybe it's just too awful to contemplate. But as the winter comes and the skies cloud up in our air force can operate at the same set of freedom as one during the summer in the spring and Iran reaches military grade in Richmond. Their ability to break out while the world is occupied with something else, maybe there'll be a storm somewhere, maybe they'll be an earthquake. And then you wake up from morning, Iran is a nuclear power. It is just like that. That's how the North Koreans even have the Indians. And but we're up. How was it? Completely intolerable situation. And this was the reason why we were applying the sanctions on one of the reasons why we were playing the sanctions on Iran that we were Robert malley just really briefly, we only got a couple of seconds left Robert melly was saying that he would have dropped all the sanctions. Doctor Oren, I got ten seconds to let you respond to that. Yeah, of course. I think we'll do anything possible to get that agreement back. Knowing that in the end, Iran will have a nuclear weapon. Doctor Michael oran, thank you so much for joining us. We're going to stay tuned on that story, believe me..

"Iran was however many months away from a bomb for many many years during the iran nuclear crisis right and and so the idea that you would need one year exactly to be able to respond is just totally arbitrary. Right it doesn't take a year to bomb them and honestly a year as as we have seen not enough time for diplomatic effort so they just picked it because it was like around number. But it's not. It doesn't correspond anything. But edit deeper level. I think that makes me crazy is how absurd is the breakout scenario right because these facilities even without the jcp away are still under. I eight yay safeguards and so the thinking of the the breakout crowd is that the iranians are going to publicly visibly. Either show the a that they are reconfiguring the cascades to build bombs or throw the i eight yay out either way. They're essentially saying we are building a bomb and that they are going to proceed to go about that activity in these well known open facilities that would immediately be the subject of attack. you know. it's just it's crazy to me that the supreme leader would be like. Hey i am going to build a bomb. I am going to do it here. You've got a year or six months to get your stuff together. Go for it like that is not what they are going to do. Right with they're going to do is what they did. Which is that. They will attempt to build a facility in secret. Don't they didn't. They didn't declare the colli electric facility outside of tehran. They didn't well the they. They avoided having to declare the natanz facility. Although i don't believe they ever would have declared it if it had not revealed They did not intend.

"Since it became clear the deal would not be struck before. Iran's election that time with the us's original goal but significant sticking points remained like the scope of sanctions relief with the us allies arguing that they can only lift sanctions connected to the nuclear deal not penalties associated with human rights abuses conventional weapons violations or other issues. The story goes on. You can read it. But i think you know the thing that hints at is the stuff that we're talking about sanctions relief but also this reference to breakout time. So i think there's two issues at play now. I know you're quoted in the piece. Jeffrey so You may have heard some of this from the reporters but like just reading between the lines. When i read that story is i think there's two there's there's there's three into related things one. Is that in response to the american withdrawal. The iranians have been upping their own course of pressure one of which is that. Some of the supplements on on enriched uranium both in purity and the amount that they have stored. They have done away with right. And so that breakout. Time has gone down below a year. The other is that some of these more advanced centrifuges with the which the jcp oa had some restrictions on but one of which would sunset were starting to come up on that first sunset right so you could foresee or imagine a place where the us. Iran comeback into compliance right. Let's say in a couple of months close to twenty twenty two and then within a year the first sunset comes along right. And then iran drops again below that fictional or at least notional one year breakout time by virtue of its advancements in centrifuges and some of the terms of the jcp away so that political goal all of a sudden starts rear. Its head is that the. Jcp away isn't really blocking runs program. That's how i think about it. Yeah i i think that's what they're going through right now and i mean it's incredibly frustrating because the whole point of the..

"And then we would see about coming back into compliance ourself and that seemed to be all backstopped with this abso being lutely insane thought that with iranian presidential election coming up. You wouldn't wanna wait. I mean you wouldn't want to do anything early. You would want to wait for it because you might get somehow like a better deal or more durable deal which you know was so frustrating. Because i am now old enough. That i remember when the europeans didn't like negotiating with rohani when he was the negotiator in two thousand five and they decided that you know well. There was an election coming up. So why hurry. We should just wait. And then they got almodena. John and nothing happened for a decade. So you know. When with the biden people were sort of making this claim that like well. You know you might want to wait and see you know good things could happen. It was like oh. It is totally unforeseeable. This could go sideways unless you were alive in two thousand five case it's totally foreseeable because it's exactly what happened. Yeah i would say in terms of like government time. They moved quickly. But i think that they could have moved faster. If was made a higher priority or if we had gotten out of her own way about being cautious. Because i do think that the original caution about just diving headfirst back into this. In addition to staffing problems and all of that goes on was the political surrounding it right. It wasn't just about policy. It was about the politics of looking weak on iran. As you take back over. yeah. I think that's right. I think the people who were opposed to moving forcefully to get back in the deal where at least just moving i They tended to view the the they tended to view the jcp oa as a reward. We're going to give to iran and iran's behavior would need to warrant it which of course like the most fucked up way to look at a diplomatic agree but pastas. They saw the sanctions relief. It was it was the sanctions for. It's the corner go ahead. I know. I know it's just. It's just so frustrating because it just it's just such a childish stupid way of looking the world and yet it's so common. So i i guess i can't i mean maybe it's me who's bizarre but it's such a dumb way of looking at the world. But they were so focused on that idea that it took them a while to it. Took other people awhile to elevate that up to biden's level when it does look like when it got elevated biden's level he was like no no no we we like. We campaigned on getting back. In this thing. We want to get back in this thing..

"Of major American Jewish organizations there's so many villains are so little time we rush to it now come the I. E. A. in frustration has declared that Iran is in violation of every part of the JCPOA and now they've taken a vote condemning in Iraq what happens next whether the enforcement Machen mechanisms given that the vote is so lopsided against the Tehran regime good evening to you good evening to both of you and close should be with you as always the resolution passed by twenty five to two with seven abstentions but the board parties the two are China and Russia and as we know the board of governors can impose certain restrictions the fact is that Iran is denying access to to the former sites which with its suspected that they've been doing nuclear research and work related to the nuclear weapons program and have refused for now for five months to allow any the inspectors in so the Ellen a lot of this information is still based on the archives that Israel was able to secret out of the run down it they argue that it's inadmissible for the VA to seek access based on that information but it's it's not the information that's important it's the facts that Iran is clearly in violation and this is certainly related to the to the larger picture of Iran's activities right now where there are debates in various bodies about what happens with the JCPOA with the arms embargo Europe announced today that they are going to extend the arms embargo unilaterally to twenty twenty three which will certainly get the the Iranians dander up but Lavrov is is writing to various people including the CRA terrace at the when saying that that the United States position is unsustainable and it's a terrible thing and use very harsh language very much publicized by the Iranian press today about the that they are against extending the embargo as China because both of them have used contracts to which they are going to benefit the significantly by by the embargo being lifted and then being able to sell and I'm sure the deal's already concluded that they'll be able to sell many things to both to to Iran and make a lot of money Tehran is in economic collapse Malcolm you report to me that is now one hundred ninety three thousand riyals to the dollar that means that the Riyadh is history it's over with it's not coming back have they got a plan to replace this or do they just dollar rise their economy and not talk about so we have tried to follow it the the fluctuations in the real one you and I started talking about it that two years ago was sixteen thousand dollars a year ago was thirty some thousand at the beginning of the year I think was a hundred thousand now topping a hundred ninety thousand to the dollar means that currency is virtually worthless and think of the people though that whose savings it cetera are are tied up to it they are in fact going a lot both four zeros from the currency and changed the name in some hope of masking the reality but the fact is that there will refuse it this year John dropped from it was over a hundred billion in twenty eleven already this year it's going to be about eight they're less than eight and the and it's falling and their oil they were cash reserves have fallen sharply and the today that's one of the reason they want to the gold from the Venezuela so they passed a new law that forces companies to repatriate any of the money that they have for the sales was about forty fifty billion dollars in non oil revenue and they're saying that all the profits that hard cash has to be repatriated back to the central bank in Iran because their reserves are so low and in the end if not they can be subject to arrest in losing their export license so this is a quite a remarkable demonstration I think of the weakness of the economy and of the pressures internal pressures and because of it and their inability to know finally to be able to meet all the demands of the could still produce money and they still have a lot of the money from the shipments of cash that they received at the time of the JCPOA but that seems to have all been dissipated and conditions are worsening they're out of money the economy's collapse they're out of cash probably everybody's got a safety deposit box with a dollars and if your your Senate now you tell me that they're discounting to airlines I flew over Iran when I came out of a customer several years past and I look down there was like hernia that cost Qatar airlines money to fly over Iraq what is what is the Iran's plan here with other airlines if they ask permission and pay to fly over so they do charge for over flights and is now going to offer discounts to the top eight airlines providing transit income from the airlines it goes up and they have to boosted by twenty percent meaning that they have to increase by twenty percent the number of flights they're not planning a general cut just targeting these airlines but it's a reflection of the money that they need for Erica traffic control for weather data generally money coming in from that are used for related activities and expenses but the fact is that before the pandemic major airlines rerouted or cancelled flights over Iraq and Iran after the Iranian missile attack on the US forces in Iraq then the Ukrainian airliner so many did not flow free riding because of that and then in June some of them we routed it because of the conflict in the Gulf when the U. S. aviation bar it's carriers from flying in the area immediately or because of the downing of the U. S. drone by Huron so Iran's activities have dissuaded companies and now because of their search for Cashin as you said because their economy is completely broken they're looking at all sorts of ways to compensate that is welcome in the dictionary under the word oxymoron woman expect to find the definition of the U. N. human rights council this August body of hypocrites as noun naming companies that are doing business in the west bank can you explain I can explain it but I can't justify it and then you're absolutely right when you talk about two more runs it certainly applies to human rights council which is the internal conflicts which and and hypocrisy just outstanding yeah they pick one area that the disputed territory to to present a blacklist of companies doing business in Israel's west bank settlements in eastern Jerusalem and it's been criticized by many organization that it states and others pulled out because this bias good terrace I know the secretary general was opposed to it and I think try to delay it as long as they could but they said this covers companies involved almost anything to do with life in the territories provision of services utilities natural resources pollution I mean it's just so unbelievable so that Israeli banks or tripadvisor General Mills or Motorola Airbnb these are all companies that are now being assaulted by the council in the report and to be removed you have to provide any information and you have to demonstrate you're no longer involved in the in the activity which is a euphemism for divestment which is the BDS movement and this is truly discriminatory it has been ruled so by many people many international lawyers lawyers and human rights council supposed to be dealing in objectivity and universality that's in it's it's it's the founding principles and avoiding politicization yet that is exactly what's happened of the hundred disputed territories in the world this is the only one they're subjected to that this blacklist them what what it does is it any gives terrorism and the BDS movement a target with the legitimization of saying once the merits council an Iranian judge sleaze in some fashions something on happy at home and suddenly he is found falling from a hotel window in Romania there has to be more to this story now there is a lot more to the story and I'm sure going to be hearing about it because this this gentleman Mr Mansouri was arrested or mania last week and he was living at the ducal tell their and the police were monitoring it he was forbidden from leaving the country after he was the charges were placed against him in the run had demanded is demanding his extradition or alone he was a co defendant in a financial corruption trial with several other judges accused of embezzlement and bribery he fled Iran and that if they see a discounted with a half million euros that he obtained through the bribery though nobody has has corroborated that and he obviously jumped out of the window now the question is was he pushed or did he volunteered to do it and it and this is a gentleman or strong word for him who was known as a notorious jailer of journalists and had been a the journalists without borders and other groups have been after him for a long time and Reporters Without Borders in Iran and others said that he was a tool.

"Where is the envoys would die off there were many openings and and the Obama administration toward the end of its tenure export and talked about some of those openings with with Iran's whether it would be counter narcotics whether it be some kind of scientific exchange for their things you can do to sort of bring them back into the international fall there was never any illusions their service and foster dress and ballistic missile problem or the proxy problems those wrongly seen as as right down the road former Assistant Secretary of state in the Obama administration and Patterson thank on the JCPOA experience because I think it actually has some valuable lessons for the passport I think we committed mistakes both before and after the JCPOA before in the sense that we started the secret inquisitions in Amman which are critical to the success of the nuclear deal later on but I think that already burned the bridges to the Gulf countries and also to Israel to certain extent because they thought we were trying to deal with the Iranians behind their back and this is my definition going to come at the expense of the values of the international crisis group so now we have tried different scenarios of trying to incite or encourage the Gulf countries to negotiate with Iran on their own or to negotiate with Iran behind their back or to stop them from negotiating with Iran or if he has anything wrong which I think is the case right now and and I think the lesson of the JCPOA is that these two processes should happen in parallel you can't have a separate arms control negotiations and a discussion about the region and in subsequent steps but rather it these things have to happen in parallel because any narrow transactions with Iran will not survive in the context of the broader enmity that exists and second I think after the security we also committed the mistake in order to eliminate the concerns of the Gulf countries what did we do we sold them.
