Biden Grants Iran Sanctions Waivers, Desperate to Restart the Nuclear Deal:
In what is being termed a “make or break” week in negotiations between Iran and the West over restarting the nuclear deal Donald Trump exited in 2018, Joe Biden is sending a clear, unambiguous signal of surrender to the Iranians in a desperate attempt to get them to sign.
Secretary of State Antony Blinken signed several sanctions waivers related to Iran’s nuclear activities with the promise of more to come if the mullahs would do Biden the favor of agreeing to another useless agreement.
The Iranians now know that they have Biden exactly where they want them. They will extract every last concession possible from the Americans before they decide whether having Joe Biden as a friend will be worth it. --->READ MORE HERE

Biden’s Iran team falls apart:
Country will never give up its nuclear weapon capabilities peacefully
During his 2020 campaign and since, President Biden has been obsessed with a renewal of former President Barack Obama’s 2015 nuclear weapons deal with Iran, the “Joint Cooperative Plan of Action.” Now, because of his weakness while trying to negotiate a new deal, some of his lead negotiators are quitting.
First among those who have quit Mr. Biden’s team is Richard Nephew, the deputy special envoy for Iran. According to a Jan. 24 Wall Street Journal report, Mr. Nephew had advocated a tougher approach to Iran. That report said that two other people have also quit the team.
Iran refuses to negotiate directly with the U.S., so representatives of the other signatories to the 2015 deal — Russia, China, Germany, France and the U.K. — meet with the Iranian delegation and Mr. Biden’s negotiators separately.
Iran hasn’t really budged an inch and Iran’s new President Ebrahim Raisi sent a new negotiating team in December which promptly reneged on the minor concessions made by Iran’s previous negotiators.
While the negotiations drag on, Iran is pushing as fast as it can to develop nuclear weapons. It has reportedly enriched uranium to the 60% level, thirty percent below weapons-grade, far above the level permitted by the JCPOA. New enrichment centrifuges continue to operate while Iran develops other key elements of nuclear weapons such as “triggers.” --->READ MORE HERE
