    I know you are disgusted by @IlhanMN’s lawless behavior lately, and her anti-Semitic demand we only sanction Israel, not Turkey and Iran. So here's some good news. Several weeks ago, I gave pivotal, never-published info on @IlhanMN to the FBI. (1/x) mentions A formal complaint had been filed with DOJ -- and DOJ actually responded. DOJ arranged a meeting w/ an FBI SAC. I have been beyond pleasantly surprised by how receptive the FBI has been w/ me and others in this matter. (2/x) mentions If a federal investigation is opened based upon this meeting, I believe the never-published information...

    Former Florida governor and Democratic Rep. Charlie Crist endorsed former Vice President Joe Biden’s candidacy for president. Crist, who was a Republican while serving as governor from 2007 to 2011, said that Biden has the ability to appeal to “independent and disaffected Republicans” needed to win Florida in a race against President Trump, according to the Tampa Bay Times. “Joe Biden’s record of getting things done speaks for itself,” Crist said in a Thursday statement. “He has always put the American people above party lines and will continue to as President.” “We need a president whose objective at the end...

    WASHINGTON — Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said Sunday that Taliban “overreached” with a car bomb attack in Kabul that killed an American soldier, leading President Donald Trump to call off closely-held Afghanistan peace talks planned for Camp David. Pompeo said the Trump administration has recalled envoy Zalmay Khalilzad, who has been negotiating with Taliban leaders for months in Qatar, and it will be up to the insurgent group whether talks will resume. Pompeo said Trump wanted to look the Taliban leaders “in the eye” while Khalilzad worked to finalize an agreement that would allow the U.S. to start withdrawing...

    U.S. exports of liquefied natural gas (LNG), negligible just three years ago, now amount to 10% of the global market and at 22 million tonnes so far this year are equal to the total volumes pumped out in 2018, Refinitiv data showed. The data, comprised of tracked individual journeys made by LNG tankers from supply source to destination, also showed LNG production hit an all-time high last month of 31 million tonnes. As global volumes grow, Qatar, for years the world’s largest LNG supplier, lost market share to Australia, which exported more LNG than any other country in the past...

    Qatari envoy Mohammed al-Emadi is reportedly set to arrive in Gaza on Thursday to discuss projects funded by the Gulf emirate in the Strip. Emadi’s expected arrival comes as tensions have spiked on Gaza’s border following several violent confrontations between Israeli soldiers and armed Palestinians. The Gulf diplomat’s visit, which will last for a number of days, will “follow up on the Qatari Gaza Reconstruction Committee’s work and projects in the Gaza Strip as well as follow up on the payment of Qatari grants to poor families” in the coastal enclave, according to a Monday report from the Gaza-based news...

    An interesting new twist in the ongoing debate over Qatari influence in American politics. Qatar is an Islamic state sponsor of terror with close ties to the Muslim Brotherhood. In the summer of 2018, congressman-turned-lobbyist Jim Moran was trying to recruit his former colleagues to put pressure on the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. Moran was doing so on behalf of one of his clients, the government of Qatar. And he had a pot of money, left over from years of donations to his reelection campaigns, that he could steer to his lobbying targets. Throughout June and July, Moran, a “senior...

    July 9, 2019 MEMRI Daily Brief No.190 'The Americans Are Good People...' – Ask The Qatari Emir By: Yigal Carmon* A popular Arab saying goes, "The Americans are good people – they can easily be deceived." There is no better proof of this observation than the Emirate of Qatar, which for over a quarter of a century has successfully fooled American administrations, both Republican and Democrat, pretending that it is America's ally while actually being the polar opposite. For over two decades, Qatar has been fostering and advancing nearly every terror organization that murdered Americans. It has praised Osama bin...

    Less than a week after the nation celebrates its 243rd birthday, President Trump has an opportunity to enhance – once again - America’s international status and improve the lives of millions of people during an upcoming meeting with the Emir of Qatar - Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad Al Thani. The July 9 meeting presents an opportunity for President Trump to raise significant concerns with the Emir regarding Qatar’s ongoing support of international terrorism, Qatar’s blatant disregard of fair-trade policies designed to protect American airline workers, and Qatar’s sad record of human rights abuses.Qatar is seen internationally as a major funder of terrorist organizations like Hamas and the Muslim...

    Our current state of counterterrorism is such that Robert Spencer, Steven Emerson, Patrick Poole, Dave Reaboi, John Rossomando, Stephen Coughlin, or Philip Haney would be extremely unlikely to be invited as experts on terrorism. The wife of the Ground Zero Mosque Imam though? Sure. Come on down and tell us that ISIS supporters don't understand Islam. ... why is the defense bringing in Khan to testify as to whether an ISIS supporter properly understands Islam? Is this really about helping the defendant or about allowing Khan to promote a particular narrative?

    Jeremy Hunt says Britain would consider joining the US in military action against Iran. Tensions between the US and Iran have increased in recent weeks after the downing of an American drone, and claims by Washington that Tehran was behind attacks on oil tankers in the Persian Gulf. The Foreign Secretary's comments came as Foreign Office minister Andrew Murrison held talks with the Tehran government at the weekend where he said he was "clear" about the UK's concerns over Iran's activities. Mr Hunt said Britain would "stand by the United States as our strongest ally" and "weigh up military intervention...

    The Department of Education has launched an investigation into foreign cash secretly flowing into U.S. universities and sent letters to Georgetown University and Texas A&M Thursday. A Senate report found that 70 percent of colleges that took money from a Chinese propaganda program broke the law by not disclosing it. Almost all of the colleges contracted to shape U.S. textbooks on the Middle East received massive funding from countries in the region. The Department of Education is going after U.S universities over supposed ties to foreign governments, after some allegedly took huge quantities of foreign cash and hid it from...

    A Lebanese-American businessman and key “witness” in the special counsel’s investigation of Russian election interference was arrested and charged Monday with transporting a dozen images of child pornography and bestiality. George Nader, 60, was arrested Monday morning at John F. Kennedy International Airport in New York, according to federal prosecutors in the Eastern District of Virginia. Nader was involved in several key meetings at the center of the special counsel’s Trump/Russia investigation and his name shows up more than 100 times in the Mueller report. Throughout the investigation, Nader was represented by Kathryn Ruemmler, Obama’s long-term White House Counsel/fixer. The...

    A law means nothing if it isn’t followed. A policy means nothing if it isn’t implemented. And a trade deal means nothing if it isn’t enforced. This remains true for any administration, and it’s something the Trump administration has clearly kept in mind as it fights for fairer trade for American workers. And that attitude has paid off for the American people – just this week, we learned that the U.S. is successfully shrinking our trade gap with China following a concerted effort by the president. President Trump’s commitment to fair trade enforcement is now being put to the test thanks...
