Iran nuclear deal: European powers say Islamic Republic ‘not meeting’ terms, threaten more sanctions

A trio of western powers is paving the way Tuesday for possible sanctions to be re-imposed on economically-strained Iran if the Islamic Republic continues to back away from its international nuclear deal.

Britain, France, and Germany, which signed the agreement in 2015, informed the European Union’s foreign policy chief that they are triggering its “dispute mechanism” – which begins a process that could result in the U.N. restoring sanctions it previously lifted under the deal. Iran has gradually been rolling back its commitment after President Trump pulled the U.S. out of the deal in 2018 – and recently announced that it would no longer respect limits set on how many centrifuges it can use to enrich uranium.

“We have therefore been left with no choice, given Iran’s actions, but to register today our concerns that Iran is not meeting its commitments,” the foreign ministers of the three countries wrote in a letter.

The ministers added they are referring “this matter to the Joint Commission under the Dispute Resolution Mechanism, as set out” in the nuclear deal, and that they “share fundamental common security interests, along with our European partners.”

BORIS JOHNSON WELCOMES REPLACING OBAMA-ERA IRAN NUCLEAR AGREEMENT WITH A ‘TRUMP DEAL’

“One of them is upholding the nuclear non-proliferation regime, and ensuring that Iran never develops a nuclear weapon,” the letter said.

German Foreign Minister Heiko Maas said the three European countries “could no longer leave the growing Iranian violations of the nuclear agreement unanswered.”

“Our goal is clear: we want to preserve the accord and come to a diplomatic solution within the agreement,” he added.

EU foreign policy chief Josep Borrell insists though that the move does not mean that sanctions will automatically be re-imposed.

The mechanism allows two weeks for ministers to resolve any problems, although that period can be extended if all sides agree, according to the Associated Press. If needed, an advisory board would have an extra 20 days to adjudicate.

The nuclear agreement is aimed at convincing Iran to stop developing atomic weapons in exchange for economic incentives.

Tehran said its recent move on uranium enrichment was a “remedial step” in line with the deal and that it could be reversed.

Americans trust Amazon and Google more than Tom Hanks or President Trump

Tom Hanks might be America’s favorite actor, but he’s not as trustworthy as Amazon or Google, according to a new report.

According to market research firm Morning Consult, the two tech titans are among the most trustworthy brands in the U.S., coming in behind only a person’s doctor and the U.S. military. Fifty percent of respondents said “your primary doctor” was the top trusted brand, while 39 percent and 38 percent of respondents said Amazon and Google were their most trusted brand.

Tom Hanks was the top brand for 34 percent of respondents and just 20 percent said President Trump topped their list.

The data, which comes from online surveys on approximately 2,000 brands and an average of 16,700 interviews per brand, found that “despite widespread societal distrust, brands remain largely well trusted by consumers,” adding that Amazon and Google even outrank “other institutions, public figures, and ideas.”

The research firm noted that there were stark differences in the most trustworthy brands depending upon age group. Millennials and Generation Z were more likely to trust technology companies. For Gen Z, Google, Netflix, Amazon, YouTube and PlayStation were the five most trusted brands, while Millennials said Google, the U.S. Postal Service, Amazon, PayPal and Netflix were their top five most trusted brands.

Despite their levels of trust from American consumers, Amazon and Google have come under intense scrutiny in recent months for a number of different mishaps.

Amazon reportedly tracked the location of attendees at one of its recent cloud computing conferences, disturbing some of the attendees, while Google has been slammed by lawmakers such as Sen. Josh Hawley R-Mo., over the tech giant’s “interference” in its search algorithms. Google says that changes to its search engine are designed to benefit users.

Video surfaces of Putin, Assad laughing about Trump at Damascus summit

A video has surfaced of Russian President Vladimir Putin and Syrian President Bashar Al-Assad laughing about President Trump during Putin’s visit to Damascus last week.

The video, originally posted by a journalist for the Komsomolskaya Pravda, comes just over a month after multiple NATO nation leaders, including Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and French President Emmanuel Macron, were recorded seemingly mocking the American president at a NATO summit. In the latest clip, Assad and Putin joked that Trump should follow in the footsteps of Paul the Apostle and visit the Syrian capital of Damascus.

“If Trump arrives along this road [to Damascus], everything will become normal with him too,” Assad said, according to a translation of the conversation posted by Axios.

TRUMP SAYS HE GETS ALONG ‘GREAT’ WITH NATO LEADERS AFTER VIDEO SHOWING APPARENT MOCKERY

Putin then joked about inviting Trump. After Assad responded that he was ready for a visit with such a changed version of Trump, Putin said, “I will tell him,” as both men laughed.

Paul, who is also called Saul, was a biblical figure who persecuted Christians. In the Book of Acts, he was struck blind by Jesus as he was on his way to Damascus to bring any Christians he found “bound” back to Jerusalem. Once he made it to Damascus, he was baptized and regained his sight before going on to preach Jesus’ message.

The incident at the NATO summit did not concern any such religious references — rather, Trump’s tardiness.

During a Buckingham Palace reception for the December NATO summit, Trudeau joked that Trump was “late because he takes a 40-minute press conference off the top,” to a laughing U.K. Prime Minister Boris Johnson and Macron. Trump had held an impromptu 40-minute press conference earlier in the day in which he tangled with Macron over whether France would accept some “nice ISIS fighters” who came from Europe and were captured in Syria.

“You just watched his team’s jaws drop to the floor,” Trudeau later added.

Trump later called Trudeau “two-faced” and canceled a news conference he had planned in London.

Meghan Markle will never live in Britain again, friend claims

Meghan Markle is never going to live in Britain again, a friend close to the Duchess of Sussex is claiming in a new interview.

As Buckingham Palace and the queen are still dealing with the aftermath of Archie’s parents’ big announcement that they are stepping down as “senior” members of the royal family, a friend of Prince Harry‘s wife claims that Britain will never be a place Markle wants to call home again.

A friend close to the Duchess told Page Six: “She doesn’t want to raise Archie there, and she doesn’t want to schlep back and forth. She’ll make extended visits, but that’s it.”

What’s more is the Duchess’ pal claims that she was “miserable” living in the United Kingdom after she gave birth to the couple’s eight-month-old son.

The friend further revealed to the outlet that Markle had difficulty sleeping and even “started having anxiety attacks about her future.”

Less than a week ago Prince Harry and Markle dropped the bombshell that they would be stepping down as “senior” members of the royal family and split their time between the U.K. and North America to work independently and still support the queen.

“We have chosen to make a transition this year in starting to carve out a progressive new role within this institution,” the couple shared on Instagram Wednesday. “We intend to step back as ‘senior’ members of the Royal Family and work to become financially independent while continuing to fully support Her Majesty The Queen. It is with your encouragement, particularly over the last few years, that we feel prepared to make this adjustment.

“We now plan to balance our time between the United Kingdom and North America, continuing to honor our duty to The Queen, the Commonwealth, and our patronages,” they continued. “This geographic balance will enable us to raise our son with an appreciation for the royal tradition into which he was born, while also providing our family with the space to focus on the next chapter, including the launch of our new charitable entity.”

The couple added they will continue to work with the reigning monarch, 93, and Harry’s father Prince Charles, as well as the 35-year-old’s older brother, Prince William.

“We look forward to sharing the full details of this exciting next step in due course, as we continue to collaborate with Her Majesty The Queen, The Prince of Wales, The Duke of Cambridge and all relevant parties,” they said. “Until then, please accept our deepest thanks for your continued support.”

Following the sudden news, Buckingham Palace aides worked around the clock to release a statement in which they revealed the Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s plan involved “complicated issues.”

Then, Queen Elizabeth II released a new statement on Monday, expressing support for Prince Harry and Markle in response to their new roles.

“Today my family had very constructive discussions on the future of my grandson and his family,” wrote the queen after speaking with Harry and Meghan on Monday.

“We respect and understand their wish to live a more independent life as a family while remaining a valued part of my family,” the queen’s statement continued. “Harry and Meghan have made clear that they do not want to be reliant on public funds in their new lives.”

Dunkin’ teams up with Snoop Dogg to introduce glazed doughnut breakfast sandwich

Like many munchies-stricken stoner before him, Snoop Dogg has now resorted to making sandwiches out of doughnuts.

Together with Dunkin’, Snoop announced on Monday the debut of its new “Beyond D-O-Double G Sandwich,” a breakfast sandwich made with a plant-based Beyond Breakfast Sausage patty, egg, cheese, and two glazed doughnut halves for buns.

POPEYES GIVES ‘FAMILY FEUD’ CONTESTANT A BIG PRIZE FOR HILARIOUSLY WRONG ANSWER

“When I got the chance to work at Dunkin’ for the Beyond Sausage Sandwich launch, I got to thinking about what other Beyond Meat sandwiches we could create. Being around my favorite glazed donuts got me inspired, so today we are dropping The Beyond D-O-Double G Sandwich at Dunkin’ restaurants nationwide,” the rapper explained in a press release issued Monday.

Fans of Snoop Dogg and/or plant-based proteins dripping in sugary glaze will have to act fast, however, as the Beyond D-O-Double G Sandwich is only available for a limited time at participating Dunkin’ locations through Jan. 19.

The D-O-Double G Sandwich isn’t the first collaboration between Snoop and Dunkin’, however. In Nov. 2019, the rapper became a Dunkin’ Beyond Meat Ambassador amid the launch of its original Beyond Sausage Sandwich, even appearing in the brand’s ad campaign.

Later this month, Snoop and Dunkin’ are also planning to debut an online pop-up shop offering a tracksuit, a bomber jacket and other apparel, some of which will be emblazoned with the coffee chain’s Beyond logos or the phrase “Glazzzed for Days” or “Glazzzy,” just in case anyone feels the need to advertise their preference for eating sandwiches made of dessert items.

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s plans to separate themselves from the royal family will be ultimately unsuccessful, U.K. media correspondent Neil Sean said Tuesday.

Appearing on “Fox & Friends” with hosts Steve Doocy, Ainsley Earhardt and Brian Kilmeade, Sean said that he doesn’t believe the news of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s intentions to “step back as ‘senior’ members'” has “gone down particularly well.”

Queen Elizabeth II responded to their request on Monday in a statement, writing that she had had “very constructive discussions” and that she was “entirely supportive of Harry and Meghan’s desire to create a new life as a young family.”

CANADA HASN’T DECIDED IF IT WILL PAY BILL FOR MEGHAN MARKLE, PRINCE HARRY’S SECURITY, SAYS FINANCE MINISTER

“Although we would have preferred them to remain full-time working Members of the Royal Family, we respect and understand their wish to live a more independent life as a family while remaining a valued part of my family,” she continued.

The queen said there are still issues to be resolved but she wants the issue completed within days.

“You know, when you think about it … the queen herself, her majesty the queen has done a tremendous job — as we know,” Sean remarked. “She has been incredibly welcoming to this lady. You can take sides all you want, but she has really gone out of her way to make Meghan feel welcome.”

He told the “Friends” host that he believes any backlash Britain has received for being potentially unwelcome and racist is “a little unkind.”

“I think, while Harry is to blame, I would tell everyone that I think Harry – for me personally – is a very weak-willed type of guy,” said Sean.

“And, I think Meghan disappearing with the dogs, the baby, and going off to Canada – not facing the music – that’s not a very 21st-century woman, is it?” he asked.

Sean hypothesized that, while Harry is very much in love with Meghan, he probably didn’t see “the fact that he would have to give up everything that he knows quite so quickly to go off and follow the woman he loves to coin a phrase.”

According to reporting from The Guardian, the couple has been seeking to register the Sussex Royal brand as a global trademark.

“What are they going to do for money? Whatever they attach themselves to is not going to look good,” Sean stated. “The fact that they branded their own Instagram stuff and they’re planning to have all of these sorts of things going out is not going to work well. It’s not going to look good for the royal family and I think it makes the brand look weak.”

‘Fox & Friends’ slams liberal outrage at Vince Vaughn for talking to Trump: ‘Who cares?!’

Westlake Legal Group friends2 'Fox & Friends' slams liberal outrage at Vince Vaughn for talking to Trump: 'Who cares?!' fox-news/shows/fox-friends fox-news/person/donald-trump fox-news/media/fox-news-flash fox news fnc/media fnc David Montanaro article ae69a03e-e1dd-5b31-8529-ec6b2ad4a00c

The hosts of “Fox & Friends” were in agreement Tuesday morning over the “unbelievable” reaction from the left after seeing actor Vince Vaughn, a self-described libertarian who has supported Republicans in the past, talking to President Trump during the LSU-Clemson national title game.

Vaughn faced an immediate backlash on social media Monday night after a video emerged on Twitter from the Mercedez-Benz Superdome in New Orleans.

“Oh my goodness. Because he’s sitting next to the president? It looks like he just went in there to say ‘hi’ to him and then he’s getting up to leave. Who cares?! He’s allowed to vote for or support whoever he likes,” said co-host Ainsley Earhardt.

Vaughn was seen in a private box chatting and laughing with the president as his wife Melania sat between them — before the pair shook hands and Trump appeared to point to the star’s credential that was hanging around his neck, according to a 31-second clip uploaded to Twitter.

ALEC BALDWIN BLASTS TRUMP SUPPORTERS, SAYING THEY’VE CAUSED ‘COLOSSAL DESTRUCTION’ TO AMERICA

The video was uploaded by a former Deadspin employee, Timothy Burke, who captioned it, “I’m very sorry to have to share this video with you. All of it, every part of it.”

Co-host Brian Kilmeade said most people would take the opportunity to say hello to a sitting U.S. president.

“It doesn’t mean he voted for President Trump. … There’s not a human being on the planet that wouldn’t go up to President Obama or President Bush in the past,” said Kilmeade, arguing that the gesture by itself should not be seen as a political endorsement by the actor.

Co-host Steve Doocy warned of the toxic culture that is developing in the country when people who disagree can no longer talk to each other.

“Unless America talks to the other side and we can just talk to each other, they might as well split the country right in half. … That’s what we’re going to. If we can’t talk to each other, we’re in big trouble,” said Doocy.

The social media reaction was swift and called for Vaughn to be “canceled.” It is not the first time a celebrity faced social media anger for their decision to interact with a Republican politician. Ellen DeGeneres faced backlash when video emerged of her sitting with ex-President George W. Bush during a Cowboys game this season.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s strategy of holding on to the two weak articles of impeachment against President Trump was starting to rattle some Democrats, who felt they were losing the political battle. Last Wednesday, Sen. Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif., told reporters, “If we’re going to do it, she should send them over,” adding, “I don’t see what good delay does.”

On Friday, Pelosi sent a letter to her Democratic colleagues that announced she was preparing to send the two articles of impeachment to the Senate. “I will be consulting with you at our Tuesday House Democratic Caucus meeting on how we proceed further,” she added.

Over the weekend, she said Senate Majority leader Mitch McConnell would be guilty of a “cover-up” if he did not allow witnesses at a Senate trial of the president. McConnell has said the House cannot dictate to the Senate.

SANDERS DENIES REPORT HE TOLD WARREN A WOMAN COULDN’T WIN PRESIDENTIAL RACE

As high-minded as most Democrats try to sound when trying to remove President Trump from office, their real motives appear transparent.

Out of touch doesn’t begin to describe most people running for, or seeking to remain, in office. They consult pollsters for what people want to hear, instead of telling them what they need to hear. It’s like gratifying children by allowing them to eat their dessert first and if they have no room or interest in vegetables, it’s OK.

Politicians, including the president, should be asked serious questions during this year’s election campaign, instead of the media’s fixation on impeachment, polls and the horse race. Here are a few that come to mind:

More from Opinion

1. Government is bigger than ever, far larger and more intrusive than our Founders anticipated and warned us about. Nonpartisan organizations have come up with proposals to rid government of programs that have outlived their usefulness, or don’t work, or never worked. Would you be willing to identify them and if elected (or reelected) terminate them?

2. The national debt is $23 trillion and the deficit is at record highs. Everyone knows Social Security, Medicare and other entitlement programs are mainly responsible. There have been serious reform proposals, but politicians won’t touch them for fear they will be smeared as anti-senior citizen. Do you have the courage to lead on this issue?

3. President Trump has wanted to pull American troops out of areas where wars never seem to end, but circumstances have prevented him from fully doing so. He has also tried, with some success, to get our allies more involved in “policing the world.” Should the U.S. be policing the world and if so, why? If not, why not?

4. How do you see the moral state of the union? Abortion remains legal virtually everywhere; same-sex marriage, which was once illegal and considered immoral by some, is now the norm. Should government be addressing these issues, or should it be left to churches and individuals? Are there lines anymore and if there are, who gets to draw them and based on what standard?

5. We have gone a long way from President John F. Kennedy’s inaugural admonition not to ask what your country can do for you, but rather ask what you can do for your country. The idea of individualism, personal responsibility and accountability for one’s actions has appeared to have given way to grievance, envy and entitlement. Is there a cause for this? How can it be cured?

There are other questions you might think of, but the answers to these would get the attention of voters, unlike the bad drama that is about to play out in Washington this week and who knows for how many more days and weeks to come?

Matt Gaetz: Pelosi’s talks with Dems will be ‘more tense than a family meeting at Buckingham Palace’

Rep. Matt Gaetz, R-Fla., remarked that the House Democrats’ weekly caucus meeting will likely be very tense, as Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., will be preparing to transmit the impeachment articles against President Trump to the Senate after hold them since the end of last year.

Gaetz told Laura Ingraham on Monday’s “Ingraham Angle” that Pelosi will be holding the meeting on Tuesday, and that it will have a similar feeling to any recent or forthcoming meeting of the British Royals in the wake of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s surprise announcement they will “step” back from royal duties.

“This is a failed strategy and it’s not all that roads lead back to Putin for President Trump, it’s that all roads lead back to Russia for the Democrats in the absence of an agenda that actually works for the American people,” he said of Pelosi’s decision to hold the articles.

“[Tuesday] morning, Nancy Pelosi and the Democrats will huddle in their weekly caucus meeting and I expect it to be more tense than a family meeting at Buckingham Palace.”

MCCONNELL CROWS ON SENATE FLOOR THAT PELOSI’S IMPEACHMENT ‘GAMBIT’ PRODUCED ‘ABSOLUTELY NOTHING’

Gaetz said there are Democrats in districts Trump won in 2016 that could be politically hurt by the impeachment proceedings, and the fact they continue to drag on presents a problem ahead of the 2020 elections.

“[They] feel like they’ve been walked off the cliff,” he said. “They were told that this was imminent, this was urgent, this was a clear and present danger. Even some of the more seasoned Democrats like Adam Smith [of Washington State] – the chairman of the Armed Services Committee where I serve – are telling Nancy Pelosi, ‘let’s get on with it’.”

The Pensacola-area Republican said the Senate trial is likely to result in Trump’s acquittal.

“We all know the president will be exonerated because he’s done nothing wrong,” Gaetz said.

Pelosi had held up sending the articles of impeachment to the Senate, citing concerns about Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell’s, R-Ky., objectivity and the lack of ability to call witnesses to testify in the trial in hopes of winning concessions from Republicans. But McConnell refused to give in.

In a television appearance over the weekend, Pelosi defended the delay, arguing Democrats were successful in making the case to the American people that the Senate trial should include witnesses.
