Iran Threatens to Restart Nuke Enrichment Program in Matter of Days

(Worthy News) – Iranian leaders are threatening to restart the country’s contested nuclear enrichment program in just a matter of days as the Trump administration and European allies scramble to address a range of flaws in the landmark nuclear accord ahead of a May deadline that could see the United States walk away from the accord, according to regional reports and administration insiders.

The head of Iran’s Atomic Energy Organization disclosed on Sunday that the Islamic Republic has maintained the ability to restart the full-scale enrichment of uranium—the key component in a nuclear weapon that was supposed to be removed from Iran as part of the nuclear agreement—in just four days.

Ali Akbar Salehi, head of Iran’s atomic work, claimed Iran could enrich uranium to 20 percent, which is more than enough to quickly reach the threshold to power a nuclear weapon, in just four days if the word is given by Iran’s hardline ruling regime.

Mueller Investigating Trump Over $150K Donation From Ukrainian Who Gave Clintons $13 Million

Mueller Investigating Trump Over $150K Donation From Ukrainian Who Gave Clintons $13 Million

(Worthy News) – The special counsel’s office is investigating a $150,000 donation a Ukrainian businessman made to President Donald Trump’s charity in 2015, according to a new report.

The donation, from steel magnate Victor Pinchuk, pales in comparison to contributions he gave to the charity Bill and Hillary Clinton set up. The billionaire has contributed $13 million to the Clinton Foundation since 2006 and had access to Hillary Clinton while she served as secretary of state.

But Special Counsel Robert Mueller is not investigating The Clintons. Instead, he is conducting a broad investigation of Donald Trump, including the flow of foreign money into various Trump-controlled entities. [ Source: Daily Caller (Read More…) ]

FBI raids offices of Trump attorney Michael Cohen

FBI raids offices of Trump attorney Michael Cohen

(Worthy News) – The FBI on Monday raided the office of Michael Cohen, President Trump’s longtime personal attorney, provoking a bitter rebuke from the president that the special counsel’s Russia probe had entered a “whole new level of unfairness.”

The agents seized scores of records from the lawyer’s Manhattan office that included documents related to money paid to adult-film actress Stormy Daniels. They hauled off paperwork and electronic files that included tax records and business papers, leaving it up in the air what exactly the FBI was searching for.

The raid signaled a major escalation in Justice Department special counsel Robert Mueller’s Russia probe, as it took a giant step closer to the president. [ Source: Washington Times (Read More…) ]

DHS to build 20-mile wall along border in New Mexico

DHS to build 20-mile wall along border in New Mexico

(Worthy News) – Homeland Security began building a border wall in New Mexico on Monday, moving to replace vehicle barriers and outdated mesh fencing with a modern wall that will deter pedestrians attempting to cross in the remove desert west of El Paso.

The 20-mile project has been on the books for some time and the contract was awarded in January, but officials said President Trump gets the credit for making it happen.

The announcement came the same day as 225 National Guard troops deployed in neighboring Arizona, backing up Mr. Trump’s order last week that could send as many as 4,000 troops to the southwest to help with surveillance, construction and other support tasks. Texas also joined in Monday, as Gov. Greg Abbott said he’d quadruple the number of Guard troops on the border, from 250 to at least 1,000. [ Source: Washington Times (Read More…) ]

Trillion-dollar deficits come roaring back under Trump

Trillion-dollar deficits come roaring back under Trump

(Worthy News) – Republicans’ tax cuts and the new spending bill Congress approved last month will send the economy surging this year to 3.3 percent growth — but will also send the deficit soaring back to the record levels of the early Obama years, the Congressional Budget Office said Monday.

Deficits will top $800 billion this year and will reach $1 trillion by 2020, just as President Trump prepares to face voters in his bid for re-election. They will remain above $1 trillion for the foreseeable future, the analysts said, painting a better economic picture but a significantly worse fiscal picture than last year.

Those deficits will quickly build, doubling the government’s main pool of debt over the next decade. Debt held by the public will stand at a staggering $29 trillion by 2028, the analysis said, prompting a warning from CBO Director Keith Hall. [ Source: Washington Times (Read More…) ]

Abbas sets conditions for hearing out Trump’s anticipated peace plan

Abbas sets conditions for hearing out Trump’s anticipated peace plan

(Worthy News) – Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas said on Sunday the Ramallah-based Palestinian leadership will only engage with the Trump administration’s anticipated peace plan if it backs a two-state solution and recognizes east Jerusalem as the capital of “the State of Palestine.”

“We will not listen to anything that comes [from the Trump administration], regardless of what it is, unless if the two-state solution [is endorsed] and east Jerusalem as the capital of the State of Palestine is recognized,” he said at a meeting of the Fatah Central Committee. “If that happens, we can talk about rest of the issues remaining on the table.”

After US President Donald Trump recognized Jerusalem as the capital of Israel and initiated the relocation of the US Embassy in Tel Aviv to the city, Abbas said on several occasions that the Palestinians will no longer work with the traditional American-led peace process and called for a multilaterally-mediated peace process to replace it.

PA lifts ‘disguise’ on ‘martyr’ payments, defying Taylor Force Act

PA lifts ‘disguise’ on ‘martyr’ payments, defying Taylor Force Act

(Worthy News) – After three years of disguising its payments to families of martyrs and imprisoned terrorists, the Palestinian Authority has lifted its veil on those payments in a “blatant act of defiance” against the United States, a new report says.

The report by the Meir Amit Intelligence and Terrorism Information Center, obtained by The Jerusalem Post prior to its being posted online, argues that the PA ’s removal of its disguise on payments is its response to the Taylor Force Act.

The legislation, recently passed by the US Congress, stipulates that portions of US aid to the PA will be cut back until it stops paying stipends to terrorists in Israeli prisons, released terrorists and the families of shahids, the Arabic word for martyrs – terrorists who die while carrying out violent acts.

Trump says US has many options in pondering military strike on Syria

Trump says US has many options in pondering military strike on Syria

(Worthy News) – President Donald Trump is threatening an imminent military strike against Syria, vowing to respond “forcefully” to Saturday’s apparent chemical weapons attack on civilians and warning that Russia or any other nation found to share responsibility will “pay a price.”

As he began a Monday evening meeting with military leaders at the White House, Trump promised to “make a decision tonight or very shortly thereafter.” He said: “We have a lot of options militarily, and we’ll be letting you know pretty soon. Probably after the fact.”

Amid the tough talk at the White House, the U.S. military appeared to be in position to carry out any attack order. A Navy destroyer, the USS Donald Cook, was underway in the eastern Mediterranean after completing a port call in Cyprus. The guided missile destroyer is armed with Tomahawk cruise missiles, the weapon of choice in a U.S. attack one year ago on an airfield in Syria following an alleged sarin gas attack on civilians.
