The Daily Outsider

Midterms loom in the United States and President Trump has been traveling the country as the United States goes to the polls On Tuesday November 6. This is also as Sanctions against Iran go into effect as of November 5. We have been getting reports of a shortage of drugs and other basic goods as the Iranian Rial value against the US Dollar has collapsed. Iran's leaders have taken a tough stand exemplified by Iran's Supreme Guide (Supreme Leader) issuing one of his broadsides against the United States and Revolutionary Guard commanders issuing threats. This is also as this is also when the US Embassy in Iran was occupied by the Iranian Students with support from elements within the new Government--one of them is now a Vice President in Hassan Rouhani's Government.
