جمشید آموزگار، نخست‌وزیر پیشین ایران،درگذشت.
جمشید آموزگار، نخست‌وزیر پیشین ایران، در سن ۹۳ سالگی درگذشت. رضا پهلوی در حساب فیسبوک خود ضمن اعلام این خبر نوشته است: “خدمات وی به کشورمان ایران قابل ستایش است.” در سال ۱۳۵۵ آقای آموزگار به عنوان دومین دبیرکل “حزب رستاخیز ایران‌” (حزبی که توسط محمد رضا پهلوی به عنوان یگانه حزب ایران تاسیس شده بود) و مشاور نخست وزیر به کنگره حزب معرفی گردید. وی سپس در شهریور ماه ۱۳۵۶ و تقریبا همزمان با اوج گرفتن اعتراضات علیه رژیم پهلوی به عنوان نخست وزیر ایران سکان هدایت دولت را برعهده گرفت. به اعتقاد برخی از ناظران، شاه با انتخاب آقای آموزگار در صدد بر آمده بود تا خود، با مشارکت بخشیدن به مخالفانش، فرصت بحران زایی در ایران را از منتقدانش بگیرد. اما عملا در دوران نخست وزیری آموزگار مخالفت‌ها در کشور بالا گرفت و انتشار مقاله‌ای در ۱۷ دی ماه ۱۳۵۶ علیه آیت الله خمینی از سوی دولت به اعتراض خیابانی طرفداران او انجامید. بسیاری از شهرهای ایران را موجی از اعتراضات در قالب راهپیمایی در برگرفت. در پی این تحولات و افزایش اعتراضات، وی در نهایت از مقام نخست‌وزیری و دبیرکلی حزب رستاخیز استعفا کرد. هفت روز پس از استعفای آقای آموزگار، محمدرضا پهلوی، حزب رستاخیز را منحل کرد. آقای آموزگار در آذر ماه ۱۳۵۷ ایران را به مقصد آمریکا ترک کرد. پس از آن فعالیت‌های آقای آموزگار بر اقتصاد جهانی و صندوق بین المللی پول متمرکز بود. پیشینه آقای آموزگار متولد چهارم تیر ماه ۱۳۰۲ استهبان فارس بود. پدرش حبیب‌الله خان آموزگار از قضات وزارت عدلیه رضا شاه بود. جمشید آموزگار، دانش آموخته حقوق و اقتصاد در دانشگاه تهران و فارغ التحصیل مقطع دکترای مهندسی هیدرولیک از دانشگاه واشنگتن بود. وی عضو مجلس مؤسسان و دوره ‌های دوم و سوم مجلس سنا بود و در کابینه حسین علاء وزارت فرهنگ را بر عهده داشت. وی دوران ابتدایی و متوسطه را در تهران گذراند و تحصیلات دانشگاهی اش با جنگ دوم جهانی مقارن شد. او تحصیل در رشته های حقوق و اقتصاد دانشگاه تهران را رها کرد و به آمریکا رفت. در دانشگاه کرنل لیسانس مهندسی راه و ساختمان را گرفت. در رشته مهندسی هیدرولیک در دانشگاه واشنگتن ادامه تحصیل داد و با اخذ مدرک دکترا از آنجا فارغ التحصیل شد. در سال ۱۳۲۸ فعالیت های اجرایی خود را با سمت کارشناسی در سازمان ملل آغاز کرد. سال ۱۳۳۰ به ایران بازگشت و دو سال بعد، معاون مهندسی وزارت بهداشت شد و پس از آن به مدت بیش از هفده سال در کابینه های دکتر منوچهر اقبال، حسنعلی منصور و هویدا فعالیت داشت. او سابقه وزارت بهداشت، ک

آمریکا: غلامرضا باغبانی، از فرماندهان نیروی قدس، قاچاقچی مواد مخدر است
با وجود دخالت گسترده سپاه در قاچاق مواد مخدر، آیا اعدام صدها تن از شهروندان به همین جرم، جنایت نیست؟ دخالت سپاه در قاچاق مواد مخدر خبر تازه ای نیست و بیانیه وزارت خزانه داری آمریکا در مورد قاچاقچی بودن غلامرضا باغبانی در تایید آن است. بیانیه خزانه داری آمریکا علاوه بر این که از “دست داشتن” نیروی قدس سپاه پاسداران جمهوری اسلامی در قاچاق مواد مخدر میگوید و اتهام “پخش مواد مخدر” توسط سپاه را تایید میکند، سپاه قدس را متهم به همکاری با برنامه گسترده با بنیادگرایان اسلامی مانند طالبان مینماید. سوال این است که وقتی سران سپاه بطور گسترده در قاچاق مواد مخدر شرکت دارند و مجازاتی نمی بینند، آیا اعدام صدها شهروند به همین جرم، یک جنایت بزرگ دیگر جمهوری اسلامی علیه شهروندان ایران نیست؟ متن کامل خبر :

جنایت جنگی جمهوری اسلامی: اعزام کودکان دانش آموز به جبهه و به کشته دادن ۳۶ هزار کودک در جنگ ایران و عراق (تصاویر)
چه ها داوطلب میشدند:۱۵ساله… ۱۶ساله… ۱۴ساله… شاد و شیرین و ذکرگویان… سحرگاه و صحرای مین و آنها مثل باغچه های بامدادیِ چمن که در دَمدمه های صبح، آماده بازشدناند و پرپرشدن و پرگشودن. از روی مین ها میگذشتند و چشمها دیگر نمی دید و گوشها دیگر نمی شنید و لحظاتی بعد، گردوغبار، که فرو مینشست، هیچ نبود!… جز تکه های گوشت و استخوان در گوشه و کنار صحرا، هر تکّه یی بر سنگی چسبیده… بدنهای خردسال بچه ها، تکه تکه، ریزه ریزه، و ذرّه ذرّه… بر اطراف دشت پاشیده… حالا، گاه بچه ها پیش از عبور و پای گذاشتن بر مین، پتو بر خویش میپیچند و میغلتند تا تکّه ها و پاره ها… چندان پراکنده نشوند که نتوان فراهم آورد و به پشت جبهه انتقال داد و بر سر دستها برد…» روزنامه اطلاعات، ۱۱ اردیبهشت ۶۲در جنگ ایران و عراق با شتشوی مغزی کودکان دانش آموز آنها را به جبهه اعزام می کردند و گاهی وقتها برای پاک کردن سریع میدان های مین آنها را روی میدان های مین می فرستادند. در جنگ ایران و عراق به گفته رفسنجانی ۳۶ هزار دانش آموز کشته شدند (رجوع شود به ویکیپدیا). جنگی به واسطه بی سیاستی ۸ سال ادامه یافت و بیش از یک میلیون کشته و چند میلیون زخمی و صد ها میلیارد دلار خسارت برجای گذاشت، و برای مردم جز بدبختی حاصلی نداشت.

جمشید آموزگار، نخست وزیر پیشین ایران درگذشت
جمشید آموزگار، نخست‌وزیر پیشن ایران، در سن ۹۳ سالگی درگذشت. رضا پهلوی در سایت حساب فیسبوک خود ضمن اعلام این خبر نوشته است: "خدمات وی به کشورمان ایران قابل ستایش است." در سال ۱۳۵۵ آقای آموزگار به عنوان دومین دبیرکل "حزب رستاخیز ایران‌" (حزبی که توسط محمد رضا پهلوی به عنوان یگانه حزب ایران تاسیس شده بود) و مشاور نخست وزیر به کنگره حزب معرفی گردید. وی سپس در شهریور ماه ۱۳۵۶ و تقریبا همزمان با اوج گرفتن اعتراضات علیه رژیم پهلوی به عنوان نخست وزیر ایران سکان هدایت دولت را برعهده گرفت. به اعتقاد برخی از ناظران، شاه با انتخاب آقای آموزگار در صدد بر آمده بود تا خود، با مشارکت بخشیدن به مخالفانش، فرصت بحران زایی در ایران را از منتقدانش بگیرد. اما عملا در دوران نخست وزیری آموزگار مخالفت‌ها در کشور بالا گرفت و انتشار مقاله‌ای در ۱۷ دی ماه ۱۳۵۶ علیه آیت الله خمینی از سوی دولت به اعتراض خیابانی طرفداران او انجامید. بسیاری از شهرهای ایران را موجی از اعتراضات در قالب راهپیمایی در برگرفت. در پی این تحولات و افزایش اعتراضات، وی در نهایت از مقام نخست‌وزیری و دبیرکلی حزب رستاخیز استعفا کرد. هفت روز پس از استعفای آقای آموزگار، محمدرضا پهلوی، حزب رستاخیز را منحل کرد. آقای آموزگار در آذر ماه ۱۳۵۷ ایران را به مقصد آمریکا ترک کرد. پس از آن فعالیت‌های آقای آموزگار بر اقتصاد جهانی و صندوق بین المللی پول متمرکز بود. پیشنه: ....

The bank's move earlier this week to claw back $41 million in stock awarded to Stumpf, an unprecedented rebuke for a major U.S. bank CEO, is unlikely to silence calls for him to resign over revelations Wells Fargo's branch staff opened as many as two million unauthorized credit card and deposit accounts to meet sales quotas. California, Wells Fargo's home state, suspended business relationships with the bank for a year on Wednesday and said it would work with the state's two giant public pension funds to change the management structure at the bank, including separating the roles of CEO and chairman.

Wells Fargo's CEO pay clawback puts Wall Street executives on notice
Wells Fargo & Co's unprecedented move to strip Chief Executive John Stumpf of $41 million in stock awards has sent a chill through Wall Street with bankers fearful that a hardening political climate against corporate wrongdoing will encourage boards to be more aggressive about making them forfeit pay. A sales practices scandal at Wells Fargo, where some of its employees opened as many as 2 million accounts without customers' knowledge to hit sales targets, could not have come at a worse time for the wider industry with politicians in Washington reviewing new rules on bank executive remuneration. "The Wells Fargo board made a mistake by not recouping some of the CEO's pay until after the firestorm developed," said Harvard Law School professor Jesse Fried.

Wells Fargo may claw back some executive pay: report
The board of directors of Wells Fargo & Co. is reported to be considering clawing back some of the millions of dollars in pay to some of its top executives.

Wells Fargo has been under pressure since it emerged in August that the San Francisco, Calif.-based bank had fired more than 5,000 of its employees over five years and been fined a total of $185 million US for making up millions of unauthorized bank accounts on their customers' behalf — often without the customers' knowledge.
