This post was shared from the American Herald Tribune's RSS feed

On 14 July 2015, the US signed a nuclear agreement with Iran, known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA).  The other four permanent members of the Security Council – China, France, Russia and the UK – plus Germany, were also party to the agreement.

Iran: one of the original signatories to the NPT

Iran was one of the original signatories to the Treaty on the Non-Proliferation of Nuclear Weapons (NPT), the internationally accepted rules-based system governing nuclear activity by states.  It signed the NPT as a ‘non-nuclear-weapon’ state on 1 July 1968 and, by so doing, undertook not to develop nuclear weapons.  It hasn’t done so.  As required by the NPT, Iran’s nuclear facilities are and always have been under IAEA supervision.  The IAEA has never detected any diversion of nuclear material from these nuclear facilities for possible military use. 

Iran’s leaders have repeatedly denied that they have any ambitions to develop nuclear weapons.  What is more, in a speech to nuclear scientists on 22 February 2012, Iran’s Supreme Leader, Ayatollah Khamenei, declared the possession of such weapons a “grave sin”.  There was nothing new in this statement: in 2005, he issued a fatwa – a religious

Cuban immigrant at Trump roundtable: Communism ‘destroyed’ my country, don’t let it destroy yours

MIAMI, Florida, July 14, 2020 (LifeSiteNews) – During a roundtable event with President Donald Trump in Florida on Friday, Cuban-born businessman Maximo Alvarez warned Americans about the dangers of communism and socialism, telling young people not to be “useful idiots.” He also stressed the importance of American values. Alvarez is the founder, owner, and president of Sunshine Gasoline Distributors. He came to the United States as a 13-year-old. “Almost 60 years later, I am sitting next to the President of the United States, talking about the American dream,” he said of his unlikely story. He then went on to talk about his experiences as a child in Cuba, comparing the rise of communism in that country, spearheaded by Fidel Castro, with the current situation in the United States. “What is happening in our backyard today I experienced as an 11-year-old. I remember vividly all of the promises that a guy named Castro gave and how 99 percent of the people swallowed the pill. It took many years. Later, after I read somebody named Saul Alinsky, that I realized that all those people were nothing but useful idiots.” Alinsky was a left-wing activist in the United States, famous for his book

Military And Commercial Space Race, Regulatory Vacuum Threaten Viability Of Future Space Activities

Donate Space debris is fast becoming a big problem The space frontier is becoming increasingly congested with space craft and orbital debris as more and more countries and corporate ventures race to secure a competitive military or commercial advantage over their rivals. However, international negotiations to develop accepted norms and requirements are hampered by rival national and corporate interests and objectives, and many activities continue to occur in a regulatory vacuum. Beyond the risk of degrading the utility and viability of the space commons more generally, two recent reports emphasize the dangers posed by the militarization of space in the absence of universally recognized norms and obligations designed to minimize the possibility of disastrous confrontations or accidents. While the US and the Soviet Union enjoyed a virtual duopoly of space for many years, many countries now have advanced space programs, including India, Iran, North Korea, France, Japan, and Israel. Moreover, space has now become a lucrative venture for many commercial operators, further multiplying the number of spacecraft and resultant space junk occupying the militarily and commercially useful zones of space. More than 1,950 active satellites are currently orbiting Earth, and plenty more will soon be joining them. Reduced costs and

He also mentioned Freemasonry. “It will not be surprising if, in a few months, we learn once again that hidden behind these acts of vandalism and violence there are those who hope to profit from the dissolution of the social order so as to build a world without freedom: Solve et Coagula, as the Masonic adage teaches,” Viganò’ wrote. Viganò, who served as the Apostolic Nuncio to the U.S., also said that there “are Bishops ... who, by their words, prove that they are … subservient to the deep state,
