    “In jail” was probably a poor choice of words. Let’s say “convicted” instead.

    One thing that hasn't really been discussed is if there's a favorable Trump juror that could also make it through voir dire. Trump doesn't necessarily need a not guilty verdict, but if there's a hung jury he may end up skating after all.

    I don't expect you to know the facts, as the article you quoted left out so much of what really happened.


    https://www.aph.gov.au/About_Parliam...es/IranNuclear

    You might want to read that assessment from 2017 from one of our allies. It's a good overview of the pros and cons of the JCPOA.
    It notes that the last administration under Trump certified Iran's compliance twice, before backing out of the agreement.
    Excuse me if I will believe this expert individual who was actually in the arena in the Mideast cauldron, rather than an Australian article from outside the pot.
    The expert being- “ Michael Oren, formerly Israel’s ambassador to the United States, Knesset member, and deputy minister for diplomacy in the Israeli prime minister’s office.”

    From the article- all of which is 100% true:

    Rather than block Iran’s path to the bomb, the agreement solidly paved it by allowing Iran to retain most of its nuclear infrastructure and to continue producing ever more advanced centrifuges capable of reducing Iran’s breakout time to mere weeks. The deal put no meaningful restrictions on Iran’s missile delivery systems or its clandestine weapons programs. And even then, the largely cosmetic limitations were set to expire in less than a decade. Well before that time, though, Iran harnessed the deal’s financial and strategic rewards to expand its sphere of influence across Iraq, Syria, and Lebanon. So much for the responsible regional power.

    Believe the man in the arena. A man from the US Most Important ally in the cauldron.

    Perhaps you should read the actual report.
    Do you think the people who wrote it, and put it into action, made stuff up?
    His own party apologized for Oren's book on the deal.
    And if you bothered to just look a little, you'd see this article is littered with false statements.

    For example: he notes
    by allowing Iran to retain most of its nuclear infrastructure and to continue producing ever more advanced centrifuges capable of reducing Iran’s breakout time to mere weeks.
    The truth is that Iran under the JCPOA:
    Before this agreement, Iran's breakout time -- or the time it would have taken for Iran to gather enough fissile material to build a weapon -- was only two to three months. Today, because of the Iran deal, it would take Iran 12 months or more. And with the unprecedented monitoring and access this deal puts in place, if Iran tries, we will know and sanctions will snap back into place.

    Here's how we got to this point. Since October, Iran has:

    Shipped 25,000 pounds of enriched uranium out of the country
    Dismantled and removed two-thirds of its centrifuges
    Removed the calandria from its heavy water reactor and filled it with concrete
    Provided unprecedented access to its nuclear facilities and supply chain
    Do a little work on your own. You'll find it helpful.
    Also remember Trump certified compliance for 2 years until he need a political football (hate all Obama things) to kick around.
    ...he went up late, and I was already up there.

    When legal bills start to mount, there's always NIL to raise money.
    The Trump campaign announced in a letter Politico obtained that Republican candidates and committees are now expected to pay “a minimum of 5% of all fundraising solicitations to Trump National Committee JFC” for using his “name, image, and likeness in fundraising solicitations.”

    I guess waging coordinated lawfare against his opponent, and ignoring the Supreme Court regarding student loan forgiveness isn't enough for the dictator-in-chief. Now Biden has unilaterally decided to phase out gas-powered cars.

    Question: did anyone hear that Congress had a debate on this? Was a bill signed into law? Did any of you get a chance to vote on this?

    I just have one question for those who want to move to all electric cars and trucks in the next 5-10 years. What are we doing to increase the power grid in this country to handle the demand that all these new vehicles will require?

    California already has rolling blackouts. Another couple of hundred thousand EVs will only make it worse. Shouldn’t we be building more power plants, be it nuclear, coal, natural gas, etc.? Does anyone even ask this question of Biden, or his administration? I don’t think they have an answer.

    It’s not like you can bring a new power plant online in a year or so. Just getting the necessary permits and environmental impact studies will take years, if not decades. If you started today, I don’t think you could get a new power plant generating electricity before 2040.

    Hey there, Pollyanna!
    There is NO Way to adapt the countries supply grid. Not possible for that massive infrastructural commitment in real time.....and the Progressive Left knows this and embraces it. The carbon emissions to achieve that is in stark contrast to the ideology of those proposing this ridiculous policy.

    The Green Religion objective is to collapse ALL FORMS of carbon based energy via CLIMATE CHANGE ALARMISTS dogma.....VERY effectively pulling off the most epic CON in the history of mankind.
