New Trump Executive Order Targets Clinton-Linked Individuals, Lobbyists And Perhaps Uranium One

The Trump Administration quietly issued an Executive Order (EO) last Thursday which allows for the freezing of US-housed assets belonging to foreign individuals or entities deemed "serious human rights abusers," along with government officials and executives of foreign corporations (current or former) found to have engaged in corruption - which includes the misappropriation of state assets, the expropriation of private assets for personal gain, and corruption related to government contracts or the extraction of natural resources. 

Furthermoreanyone in the United States who aids or participates in said corruption or human rights abuses by foreign parties is subject to frozen assets - along with any U.S. corporation who employs foreigners deemed to have engaged in corruption on behalf of the company.

In fact, anyone in the world who has "materially assisted, sponsored, or provided financial, material or technological support for, or goods or services" to foreigners targeted by the Executive Order is subject to frozen assets.  

The EO, based on the 2016 Global Human Rights Accountability Act, immediately added 13 foreign individuals to a list of "Specially Designated Nationals" (SDN) maintained by the Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC) - several of whom have ties to the Clintons, the Clinton Foundation, or Clinton associates (details below). Moreover, the Treasury Department sanctioned an additional 39 people,  for a total of 52 under the new order - including the son of Russia's prosecutor general. 

The Order reads: 

I, DONALD J. TRUMP, President of the United States of America, find that the prevalence and severity of human rights abuse and corruption that have their source, in whole or in substantial part, outside the United States, such as those committed or directed by persons listed in the Annex to this order, have reached such scope and gravity that they threaten the stability of international political and economic systems.

Last Week's Executive Order could have serious implications for D.C. lobbyists who provide "goods and services" (e.g. lobbying services) to despots, corrupt foreign politicians or foreign organizations engaging in the crimes described in the EO. "Virtually every lobbyist in DC has got to be in a cold sweat over the scope of this EO," said an attorney consulted in the matter who wishes to remain anonymous. 

And because the phrase "person" means "an individual or entity" in the order - any US organization which merely employs a foreigner engaging in the listed offenses is also subject to frozen assets. "Consider, what would happen if Apple, say employed a foreign national who bribed a PRC official for government approvals? How about a hypothetical case of a company like Northrop or Boeing where an employee, or consultant, who is a foreign national bribes a Saudi official to direct government purchases of airplanes and military equipment? At least some or all of their assets could be frozen."

Now consider that if reports from The Hill are accurate - an FBI mole deep within the Russian uranium industry uncovered evidence that “Russian nuclear officials had routed millions of dollars to the U.S. designed to benefit former President Bill Clinton’s charitable foundation during the time Secretary of State Hillary Clinton served on a government body that provided a favorable decision to Moscow (the Uranium One approval)” – a deal which would eventually grant the Kremlin control over 20 percent of America’s uranium supply right around the time Bill Clinton also collected $500,000 for a Moscow speech, as detailed by author Peter Schweitzer’s book Clinton Cash and the New York Times in 2015. 

The Russians were compromising American contractors in the nuclear industry with kickbacks and extortion threats, all of which raised legitimate national security concerns. And none of that evidence got aired before the Obama administration made those decisions,” a person who worked on the case told The Hill, speaking on condition of anonymity for fear of retribution by U.S. or Russian officials. –The Hill

The same FBI informant claims to have video evidence showing Russian agents with briefcases full of bribe money related to the controversial Uranium One deal:

In a report by Tucker Carlson, a former long-time executive of now-defunct D.C. lobbying firm, The Podesta Group - who has been interviewed extensively by FBI special counsel Robert Mueller, claims that Tony Podesta was "basically part of the Clinton Foundation," frequently meeting with the charity to discuss the Uranium One deal. Meanwhile, Tony's DNC operative brother John Podesta reportedly recommended that the Podesta Group hire David Adams - Hillary Clinton's chief adviser at the State Department, giving them a "direct liaison" between the group's Russian clients and Hillary Clinton's State Department.

Hypothetically, if the Uranium One deal is deemed corrupt by the Trump administration, and "Russian nuclear officials" indeed routed millions of dollars to the Clinton Foundation, and Tony Podesta lobbied on behalf of the deal for the Clinton Foundation - it stands to reason that this Executive Order could freeze the US-housed assets of quite a few individuals. Of note, assets can be frozen with no prior warning, as trump has declared a national emergency due to the "scope and gravity" of the threat posed by said individuals. 

To simplify this complicated legal document a bit, keep in mind:

Section 1. (a)(i-ii) outlines all foreigners the Executive Order applies to: 

Section 1. (a)(iii) defines U.S. Citizens who have assisted foreigners in any of the crimes described above:

Note: The above section (iii)(A)(3) means any foreign person engaging in "serious human rights abuses" or listed forms of corruption on behalf of a U.S. entityAlso of note - Attorney General Jeff Sessions rolled back a series of Obama-era curbs on civil-asset forfeiture over the summer, strengthening the federal government's ability to seize cash and property from Americans without criminal charges. That said, this Executive Order only freezes assets, it does not allow the government to take custody of them.  

In regards to the 13 listed individuals targeted by this order - several of whom have ties to the Clintons, the Clinton Foundation or Clinton associates - we find the following:

----

Goulnara Islamovna Karimova, 45, daughter of former Uzbekistan leader Islam Karimov, headed a powerful organized crime syndicate that leveraged state actors to expropriate businesses, monopolize markets, solicit bribes, and administer extortion rackets.

In early 2016, Amsterdam-based telecom giant VimpelCom (now VEON) admitted to a conspiracy in which they paid millions in bribes to Karimova for entry into the Uzbek telecom market. In a series of related cases, the U.S. Justice Department has sought the forfeiture of $850 million in bribe money from various bank accounts across Europe. In July, Uzbek officials arrested Karimova for fraud, money laundering, bribery, and embezzlement and a variety of other claims. 

In 2009, a WikiLeaks cable notes that Karimova set her sights on Bill Clinton to gain access to then-Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton.

(WikiLeaks, 7/31/2009)

Three years later, Karimova co-sponsored a 2012 Clinton Foundation fundraiser in Monaco. Hillary Clinton's State Department was asked to weigh in on Bill Clinton's contacts with Karimova. Pictured below with Bill Clinton at an AIDS charity event in Cannes, France.

Dan Gertler is an Israeli billionaire mining magnate revealed by the Paradise Papers to be chief negotiator between the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC) and his primary business partner - mining company Glencore, founded by Marc Rich - who was pardoned for corruption by Bill Clinton on his last day in office after his wife gave $450,000 to the Clinton Library foundation. 

Glencore immediately cut ties with Gertler following Trump's Executive Order.

Dan Gertler

In 2001 Gertler gave $20m in cash to DRC President Joseph Kabila to use to buy weapons and fund his war against rebels to consolidate his grip on power. In exchange, Gertler’s company IDI was granted a monopoly on the DRC diamond trade, worth hundreds of millions a year. In 2013, Gertler sold the DRC rights to mine oil for $150 million, a 300x increase on an asset he   purchased from President Kabila 7 years prior for just $500,000.  

In 2012, Kabila offered Bill Clinton $650k for a speech in the DRC - for which Clinton sought State Department approval - only to have his speaking agency recommend against the appearance which would require photos with the dictator. 

Gertler's family foundation is also linked to John McCain - sharing a seat on the board of directors of "Operation Smile" with Cindy McCain for a period of time. 

---

Yahya Jammeh is the former President of Gambia who came to power in 1994 and stepped down in 2017. He has a long history of serious human rights abuses and corruption - creating a terror and assassination squad called the Junglers that answered directly to him.

 

Yahya and Zeinab Jammeh with Barack and Michelle Obama, 2014

Jammeh was installed as President during a 1994 CIA-led coup in Gambia authorized by the Clinton administration, and in 2014, the Obama administration effectively sidelined an attempted coup. Indeed, Jammeh appears to have been a friend to both the Clinton and the Obama Administrations. 

---

Angel Rondon Rijo; Dominican Republic - Sanctioned for funneling a $92 million bribe from Brazilian conglomerate Odebrecht to Dominican Republic officials as kickbacks. Odebrecht Donated $50-$100k to the Clinton Foundation.

---

Benjamin Bol Mel; Sudan - Financial Advisor to South Sudanese President Salva Kiir and president of ABMC construction company accused of corruption. Hillary Clinton pushed for a waiver from the Obama Admin on the prohibition of military aid due to the use of child soldiers in South Sudan. 

---

Artem Yuryevich Chayka; Russia - Son of Russia's Prosecutor General, Yuri Chayka (Chaika) - used father's connections to win state owned contracts. Curiously, Russian Attorney Natalia Veselnitskaya met with Yuri Chayka before her involvement in the infamous Trump Tower meeting arranged by Fusion GPS associate Rob Goldstone - a meeting many believe was one of several schemes used by the Obama administration to justify wiretapping the Trump campaign. Of note - Donald Trump Jr. reportedly shut down the Trump tower meeting when Natalia Veselnitskaya began discussing lifting sanctions under the Magnitsky act - the very legislation Trump's Executive Order is now leveraging against Artem Chayka.  

---

Mukhtar Hamid Shah; Pakistan - surgeon specializing in kidney transplants, believed to be involved in kidnapping, wrongful confinement, and the removal of and tracking in human organs from Pakistani laborers

---

The rest of the 13 individuals have engaged in a variety of corruption and human rights abuses ranging from a Serbian arms dealer believed to be linked to a $95 million deal with Yemen, to government officials who ordered journalists murdered, to several instances of serious human rights violations. (h/t @HNIJohnMiller)

One wonders if perhaps the purpose of this Executive Order addressing serious human rights abusers and corruption - a national emergency, was intended to ensure the much talked about swamp renovation comes in ahead of schedule and under budget. We'll know for sure if Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin starts freezing bank accounts after the holidays.

You are dreaming of you think anything is happening to the Clintons or their close associates. Definitely nothing will happen to the israeli guy, that pretty much goes without saying too. Trump wouldn't dare. If ANYTHING comes out of this, some foreign individuals may wind up with any American banking system assets seized by the treasury. That is all. This will go nowhere, bet on it.

The U.S. government is officially a corporation, correct?  Yes.So technically this Executive Order should be even more specific towards any Congress critters who used Imran Awan as their IT guy: Here’s the COMPLETE LIST of the 30 Democrats Who Hired the Criminal Awan Brothers for IT Services http://www.thegatewaypundit.com/2017/07/heres-complete-list-30-democrat… This law should be completely non-partisan and all the corrupt scumbags in this government whether they have a fake R or a fake D next to their names should all be investigated and charged with the crimes they are guilty of.  Most of the entire government could be arrested for their corruption and treason.Lock them all up and reboot the system based on the ORIGINAL consitution.  it's the only way to save the Republic.

What is weird is this; that 2000 years ago, there were no people even resembling Jews in the middle-east at all.

Turns out that there is not a single ancient Jewish city in what is now called Israel. There is not a single city where the Hebrew script is used on the statues and buildings. There is not a single city where the buildings are in the ancient Jewish architectural style. In fact, there is not even a category of "ancient Jewish architectural style".

If you check out all the ancient cities in Israel, they are all Greek, and their ruins are still there for you to visit. Their inscriptions are in the Greek script and the buildings are in the ancient Greek architectural styles.

Here is a list of some of the known ancient Greek cities in (and near) Israel; Ecdippa, Seleucia, Ptolemais, Taricheia Arbela, Asochis, Sepphoris, Hippos, Dion, Sycaminum, Bucolon Polis, Itabyrium, Gadara, Abila, Dora, Comus, Gephrus, Crocodilion Polis, Caesarea, Straton's Tower, Narbata, Scythopolis, Pella, Samaria, Amathus, Ragaba, Gerasa, Apollonia, Sicima, Pegae, Joppa, Arimathea, Jamnia, Port of Jamnia, Lydda, Modiin, Aphaerema, Philadelphia, Birtha, Gazara, Beth Horon, Dok, Jericho, Samaga, Esbus, Medaba, Ladder of Tyre, Azotus, Port of Azotus, Accaron, Jerusalem, Ascalon, Anthedon, Gaza, Marissa, Beth Zur, Hebron, Adora, Engeddi.

The ancient Jewish cities in Israel are,.... well there aren't any. Not even one.

Here's an interesting example of a first century BC Greek inscription (i.e., in Greek letters) from Jerusalem's Temple Mount forbidding the entry of Gentiles (i.e., non-Greeks) to the Temple precinct....

https://www.timesofisrael.com/ancient-temple-mount-warning-stone-is-clo…

Slack Jack's CHALLENGE:

Name ONE ancient city (that existed in what is now called Israel) where the building inscriptions are all in Hebrew, and the buildings are constructed in the ancient Hebrew architectural style (whatever that may be).

The Hebrew that is desired, is the Hebrew of the Dead Sea scrolls (supposedly from 2000 years ago), which is essentially modern Hebrew without points.

Then give a summary of "the ancient Hebrew architectural style" (you will have to make this up as it does not yet exist).

Then give links to photos of the ancient building inscriptions which show that they are written in Hebrew.

Then show that the buildings are constructed in the ancient Hebrew architectural style (that you have just defined/invented).

The Dead Sea scrolls Hoax.

The Dead Sea scrolls are a mixture of old documents that were hidden in a number of caves to be miraculously found and used to support the establishment of Israel, a country intended for Jews only.

The main document "finds" were in 1946 and 1947 in caves near the tiny ancient settlement of Qumran.

Israel was created in 1948.

The Dead Sea scrolls are the only really old (well supposedly really old) documents, in the Hebrew characters, that have ever been found. No other really old documents in the Hebrew characters have ever been found.

All other documents in Hebrew characters date from later than 800 AD.

Previous to the "finds", critics had pointed out the late date of all documents in Hebrew characters, and deduced that the Hebrew Old Testament must have been translated from the Greek Old Testament and not the other way round.

Then, low and behold,... a very timely miracle occurs.

The Dead Sea scrolls are "found" and dated to hundreds of years earlier than the oldest previously known documents in Hebrew characters.

Then, it is widely claimed that all the scrolls were produced and hidden in the Qumran caves before 70 AD (the supposed time of the mythical sack of Jerusalem by the Romans).

The critics are not given access to the scrolls nor even photographs of the text, lest they spoil the party.

In fact, for decades, only seven scholars are given access to the scrolls.

This goes on till certain critics are dead and the scrolls have been purged of all anachronisms (like Arabic numerals).

Then, in 1991, only 45 years after their "discovery", the Huntington Library, in San Marino, California, without consent, makes facsimile copies of the scrolls available to all.

So that, in brief, is the Dead Sea scrolls Hoax.

More, however, can be deduced....

One can even guess where the Dead Sea documents came from.

It turns out that some of the Dead Sea documents, for example, the "Damascus Document," are nearly identical to documents from the Genizah collection of the Ben Ezra Synagogue in Cairo, Egypt. So, it is likely that many of the Dead Sea scrolls had their source there.

Worldwide, there are ten manuscripts of the "Damascus Document" from the Dead Sea scrolls and two manuscripts from the Cairo Genizah. This strange distribution is a result of the fraud. The "Damascus Document" was first published in 1910 by Solomon Schechter in "Fragments of a Zadokite Work."

The Ben Ezra Synagogue was established around 900 AD.

Now, the Arabs have ruled Egypt since they defeated the Greek armies around 635 AD.

Now, the synagogue (and its Jews) existed happily, undisturbed, in Cairo, in the midst of the Islamic world.

So, maybe the original Jews were a group of Arabs.

This would explain why Hebrew and Arabic are nearly identical languages.

This would explain why the Hebrew and Islamic religious traditions are very similar.

And, it would also explain why Jews turned up in Spain with the Arabs (Moors).

Another couple of points:

It should also be noted that a few Jewish scholars (in particular, Solomon Zeitlin) have long insisted that the Dead Sea scrolls were a Medieval production. [Zeitlin was a well-known Talmudic scholar and would not claim this unless convinced it was true.]

Internal evidence from the scrolls themselves indicates a Medieval production. See, here.

And, the fact that many scrolls are written on vellum (90% of them) proves these are indeed a Medieval production.

It is estimated that 20 people occupied the site of Qumran (estimated by the number of inhabitants for whom there was room in the buildings). Now these 20 people were not just ordinary people, they read and wrote Greek, Phoenician, Aramaic, Nabataean, and Hebrew documents, like natives, and managed to write learned works on numerous religious topics (about 900 manuscripts were "recovered," about six hundred separate works), while gathering enough water, and raising enough food, for their survival, in a desert.

Some have tried to claim that as many as 200 lived at Qumran, but most have considered that number ridiculously high.

Anyway, I think it is clear that the Dead Sea scrolls are a bunch of old documents that have been thrown together and sold to a gullible world.

7th C. BC - Ketef Hinnom Scroll
(Hebrew)

In a tomb at Ketef Hinnom in Israel, the oldest text of the Hebrew Bible was discovered. The text, inscribed on a silver scroll in the old Hebrew script dating to the 7th Century B.C., is the Aaronic blessing (Numbers 6:24-26), which begins, "yeverekh'kha YHWH Vayishmarekha" (May Yahweh bless you and keep you).

I realize that the way things have been panning out over the last year that there is not much cause for ny hope at all. Sessions recusing, Trump appointing swamp creatures you name it.Perhaps this chaos may not be intentional - but it is useful? Not sure. If Trump would have confronted the issues in dc head on as soon as he arrived, it would likely have resulted in some type of civil conflict. Of course I am not for certain, but this new approach seems to be a way to snare a lot of the enemies of the republic through means that are less abrupt and more process oriented - less likely to appear or seem like political retribution. In other words, it looks like the enemies of the republic are hanging themselves rather than a partisan type operation.Trump knows that in order for him to hold influence over the elections next year and in 2020 he must deliver - it is why he was elected. It could be for blackmail purposes as well - but the public has been screaming for justice in a big way for more than a year now - regardless of the msm attempts to squash it. This is reason number 1 for Trump's election. It was his campaign message and it was our last gasp at a real attempt to get the highly corrupt political machines out of governance of our republic and clean up dc / mic / bankster complex. We could not get Ron Paul, he could not barge in like Trump did and take the nomination. I know Trump is no Paul and vise versa. Cruz would not have been able to logically pursude the middle as Trump did.In any case, I am not relying on anything other than my own interpretation of milestones. Back in 2016 prior to the election, none other than AJ on infowars said that there was gross pedophilia and it would be brought to light. Shortly after, there was pizzagate and even shill verified that with her "comet around" comment. Then this year we start seeing all of the sexual assault stories which seem to be some type of appeasment - or attempt to cover up. The assaults could have been prosecuted at any point of the last 50 years - but were not. Now Trump declares a national emergency to deal with human trafficing. The human trafficing (slavery/organ harvesting/prostitution/child rape) IS the achilles heal of all the banksters/MIC/politicians/MSM - this is it. If this does not bring the shit down, then I cannot see wht will. I see no other reason for any of this at this point, why else would Trump target the human trafficing? To fuck with us some more? I hope not. The shit had better go down.

If HRC and company goes to jail (let us pray), I doubt you will see many Republicans go to jail or lose assets. If they do you can be sure it wasn’t because they were corrupt it was because they oppose Trump’s faction in some way.

This EO is so broad basically 90%+ of Congress and Billionaires could go down. Nothing like a corruption purge that doubles as a Coup to remove political opposition. All the folks who want a Right Wing dictatorship must be thrilled.

Russiagate BS attempted Coup by Bush/Clinton faction and now the attempted Coup by the Trump faction. Pulling the plug on life support for the Republic and the Founding Fathers are spinning in their graves. I don’t see a way out given that both factions seem hellbent on a Coup against their opposition and the final death of the Republic.
