OPINION: Nightmare Photo of Mueller Just Surfaced With Russian He’s Prosecuting Manafort Over

The trial is now in full swing and is purportedly not going well for Manafort

Published

on

I’ve only been catching snippets of the Paul Manafort trial. From what I understand the judge has little patience with Mueller’s team and has set a very high bar for conviction. The trial is now in full swing and is purportedly not going well for Manafort. He is being charged with fraud and tax evasion among other things. Crimes that pretty much occurred years ago, long before he was on President Trump’s campaign team. Mueller could not get Manafort on the charge of collusion with the Russians or get him to flip on President Trump, so he nailed Manafort with process crimes and got Rick Gates to flip on Manafort. It reminds me a great deal of how the FBI ensnared Al Capone.

Gates has admitted to a number of things including an affair, embezzling funds from Manafort and assisting in tax evasion as I understand it. It makes it pretty clear at least from his testimony that he assisted Manafort in breaking the law. Manafort is Trump’s former campaign manager. Other charges being leveled at him include money laundering, failure to file reports of financial accounts overseas and acting as an unregistered foreign agent. Most of the charges have to do with work he did for former Ukrainian President Viktor Yanukovych, a pro-Russia candidate. I might just point out that Manafort was during that time doing business with Tony and John Podesta, who are Democrats and lobbyists as well. However, they won’t be prosecuted it would seem. Rumor has it that Tony Podesta may have been given immunity by Mueller. We’ll see.

Mueller’s team has tried to use Manafort’s wealth and his ties to Russia to convict him in the courtroom. This has drawn the ire of the presiding judge. The prosecution has introduced as evidence a loan from Russian oligarch Oleg Deripaska and financial accounts abroad controlled by Konstantin V. Kilimnik, who prosecutors allege has ties with Russian intelligence. The problem is that those don’t seem to be illegal acts.

Remember that Manafort was not with Trump for very long and was introduced to his team by establishment Republicans in an effort to help Trump when it became apparent they would have to get along. Trump fairly quickly dumped Manafort and went with Kellyanne Conway, who led his campaign to victory. Trump is not a politician and he seems to only go astray when he takes advice from long-time Republicans who don’t understand or desire what he is trying to accomplish.

It’s a small world out there and a nightmare photo has surfaced of Mueller with Yanukovych during his time at the FBI. Awkward.

From the Conservative Tribune:

“For fans of the theory that President Donald Trump is somehow a puppet of the Kremlin, Mr. Yanukovych figures heavily. In terms of the satellite regimes Vladimir Putin has tried to set up in post-Soviet states, Yanukovych’s was one of the most transparent. Before he was deposed as part of the Ukrainian revolution in 2014 he was as reliable a pro-Russia politician as any.

“It’s ironic, then, that Robert Mueller is the individual whose special counsel investigation is tackling the case:

“Regardless of how you feel about Mr. Posobiec and his promotion of various conspiracy theories, the point still bears making: Mueller worked with Yanukovych during his time as director of the FBI.

“The meeting in Kiev took place two months after the Boston Marathon bombing, according to The Daily Beast, and centered around counterterrorism operations.

“‘Ukrainian-American cooperation efficiently develops in many spheres of mutual interest,” Yanukovych said during Mueller’s trip, according to a Facebook post from the time by the Ukraine Embassy.

“‘Your visit is very interesting for Ukraine and relations between our law enforcement bodies have established good traditions of cooperation and communication in the course of 20 years. I am confident that there is a potential for further broadening of cooperation.”

“At the meeting, the Ukrainian leader said that he was very close to signing an agreement with the European Union.

“‘There are some preparations left but I hope that we will fulfill everything and sign the agreement,” Yanukovych said during the meeting, according to The Daily Beast. The agreement, which The Daily Beast describes as “a key focus of Paul Manafort’s lobbying work for Yanukovych” — was never signed.”

This doesn’t mean much all by itself. But if Mueller is pushing guilt by association, this goes to conduct… his own. The FBI was working with Ukraine at the time concerning anti-terrorism efforts. Regardless, the optics are terrible here. This is the guy who Manafort’s being charged with lobbying for in a case many Trump supporters feel is being used to try and tie the administration to the Kremlin. And you have Mueller glad-handing with him and beaming over this guy just five years ago under the Obama administration. Everyone already knew that Yanukovych was a Russian stooge but Mueller didn’t seem to have an issue with it then. He does now because of President Trump. For this alone, Mueller should have recused himself from the investigation.

On Monday, the judge in Manafort’s case told the lead prosecutor Greg D. Andres that he didn’t want to hear any more speculation about why oligarchs might have wanted to pay the lobbyist for his advice. He instead advised him to “go to the heart of the matter.” The judge has frequently done this and I heard this morning that one of the prosecutors got so upset he was crying over it. That hasn’t been verified yet, but you get the point. “Judge, we have been at the heart of the matter,” Andres said, exasperated. That’s the problem and why so many Americans don’t trust Mueller’s team or this investigation. A photo surfacing of you posing with one of your alleged bad guys doesn’t help either.

More Than 90 Muslims Running For Office Across U.S. All Have The Same Thing In Common

This demographic is growing quickly

Published

on

As the 2018 midterms heat up, the choice of political candidates is becoming ever more diverse and somewhat confusing. There are a ton of Muslim candidates running for office across the United States. Most are Democrats as far as I know and support a liberal agenda. This election cycle has seen more Muslim candidates running for office than I can ever remember in my lifetime. At least one in Minnesota is pretty much a done deal and others may follow suit.

Fayaz Nawabi, who is 31 years old, is one such candidate in San Diego, California. He has never met President Trump, but he does give him credit for his running for office currently. He is running for San Diego City Council. Nawabi is pro-affordable housing, pro-environment, pro-immigrant and pro-refugee. He’s also pro-gun control. That makes him part of the blue wave of new liberal candidates that are spurred to run by Trump’s election and his conservative policies. The blue wave’s political platform is exceedingly liberal in all respects and pretty much the polar opposite of Trump’s.

In fact, Nawabi is part of a new subset of liberal politics… the blue Muslim wave. More than 90 American Muslims are running for office this time around. They are young and new to politics. They all have in common that they are long shots, stand against President Trump’s policies and are primarily Democrats. But even if they lose, they will surely run again next time around and they are gaining experience on the ground this campaign season.

Their numbers may seem relatively small, but their candidacies are a trend. This is an unprecedented rise in political numbers for the nation’s diverse Muslim community that typically has been underrepresented in American politics. Currently, there are more than 3.3 million Muslims that live in the United States. And that number is increasing every year. Right now, they hold just two of the 535 seats in Congress. Voter participation in Muslim communities is very low as well. That’s something these candidates are trying to rectify.

From The Counter Jihad Report:

“The rise of Muslim candidates coincides with the growth of the predominantly immigrant population and a partisan shift that has played out over a generation. In a 2001 Zogby poll of American Muslims, 42 percent said they voted for Republican George W. Bush in the previous year’s presidential election, while 31 percent said they voted for Democrat Al Gore. By last year, just 8 percent of voting American Muslims in a Pew poll said they voted for Trump, while 78 percent said they voted for Democrat Hillary Clinton.

“While Clinton’s campaign never garnered broad enthusiasm from Muslim communities, Trump’s campaign — which called for the monitoring of mosques and a ban on Muslims entering the United States — delivered a jolt on election night that some American Muslims likened to the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks.

“’It woke everyone up,” Nawabi said.

“Now, Muslim candidates are running for a wide range of offices across the country, from local school boards to the U.S. Senate. Some are making their Muslim identity central to their campaigns.

“’When you put someone in a corner and they’re in survival mode, they have a tendency to come out and speak more prominently about their beliefs,” said Nawabi, who considers himself an “unapologetic Muslim” who can quote the Koran from memory and moonlights as a “freelance imam.’”

In Michigan alone, there are thirteen Muslim candidates running for office. Physician Abdul El-Sayed is hoping voters will elect him to be the first Muslim governor in the United States and he has used his religious affiliation unapologetically in his campaign ads against Republican front-runner Bill Schuette, whom Trump has endorsed. “Donald Trump and Steve Bannon would love to see a right-wing radical like Bill Schuette elected in Michigan,” reads a Facebook ad for El-Sayed, who faces a Democratic primary in August. “You know what would be sweet justice? If we elected a 33-year-old Muslim instead of Bill Schuette. Send a message and help elect the first Muslim governor in America.” Michigan is pretty much ground zero for Muslim politics these days. A fierce battle in politics is playing out there in Muslim communities.

Another candidate is Asif Mahmood, a 56-year-old pulmonologist. He would be the first Muslim insurance commissioner in California. Deedra Abboud, 45, in Arizona, or Jesse Sbaih, 42, in Nevada, could be the country’s first Muslim senator. And any one of four Muslim women running for office: Nadia Hashimi, 40, in Maryland; Sameena Mustafa, 47, in Illinois; or Fayrouz Saad, 34, and Rashida Tlaib, 41, in Michigan could be the first female Muslim in Congress.

As I said, many of these new candidates may not win this time around, but give it time. They are determined and their communities are pulling together behind them. The proof will be in the statistics, polls and voter turnouts come election day. This demographic is growing quickly and you will definitely see more Muslims in office in the next election cycle or two should this trend continue.

Sarah Breaks Down In Tears In Front Of Reporters After Bravely Making Personal Announcement

This speaks volumes about who she is.

Published

on

White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders is the pillar of professionalism and grace under fire. Since being hired for the role and having to conduct frequent press briefings to the mainstream media wolves, she’s been a perpetual target of the most ruthless attacks. The media she briefs aren’t the only ones who come at her. Late night talk show hosts and celebrities in Hollywood have also enjoyed making fun of her to no end. After a while, it would take it’s toll on anyone regardless of your strength and solid sense of self-worth.

Sarah has still has to do her job daily in the face of all of that torment and does so flawlessly. From how she holds herself, there’s no telling what she really feels inside. However, she recently lost her composure, and rightfully so, when she broke down in tears in front of reporters as she began to make a very personal announcement.

President Trump knew what he was doing when he put this incredible woman in this position. She’s the very best for the job and more importantly, has Trump’s back. There’s no question how much she genuinely respects him and the job he’s doing as our nation’s leader. Proving that, was when she began to cry while revealing what she found on his desk.

Editor’s Note: This particular story was popular at the time it originally made the news and is circulating again a second time for the important and applicable message that’s relevant today.

Western Journalism reports:

White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders grew visibly emotional during a press briefing Thursday as she read from a 10-year-old letter recently sent to President Donald Trump from a Tennessee man named Joseph.

The father of an Air Force master sergeant currently on his second tour of duty in Afghanistan, Joseph wrote the letter while his son was serving in Iraq, to remind him of everything that was at stake.

“Please don’t lose sight of your purpose,” Joseph had written. “You’re the only hope and glimmer of light for the good, innocent men, women and children that you are protecting. This may be hard for you to see or understand.

“Most people know that all of you are there because you volunteered to be there. Your actions and dedication are seen by people throughout the world as without a doubt the most heroic action of any person which can be made.

“You and the soldiers standing next to you from all of the other countries are the pride of not only the nations they represent, but every individual that yearns to be free,” the letter concluded. “Stand tall, my son, and be steadfast. For it is you who are the defender of freedom.”

As she read it, the emotion from the podium was palpable. Like Trump, Sanders has a deep respect for the men and women who serve our country. It was personal to her to make this announcement and obviously important.

“We owe it to the servicemen and women like the master sergeant who have fought in our name in Afghanistan for 17 years and to the families who have watched them go to secure an honorable and lasting outcome to this conflict,” Sanders saids during the press briefing, after reading the letter aloud.

Western Journalism added:

Though many on both the right and left have complained over the president’s just-announced decision to escalate the United States’ war in Afghanistan, it’s clear by Joseph’s poignant words why we can’t give up now when we’ve already come this far.

Closing up the briefing, Sanders noted that Joseph told Trump he had been a police officer for 30 years and that he sent the letter to the president in the hopes he’d read it.

“I’m glad to say that he did earlier today,” she said.

Each citizen is so important and special to the president, that he read this letter and kept it within reach, despite receiving an overwhelming amount of mail daily, most likely. He promised to work for the “average” American and our military and is doing just that. Part of Joseph’s words to his son also apply to Sanders and Trump as well: “Please don’t lose sight of your purpose.” America needs them both to remain steadfast to their purpose through the challenges heaped on them by detractors. There’s no doubt they too will fight until the end.
