    Jihad Watch Court Docs: Iranian-American Lobbying Group NIAC Defrauded Feds, Lied to Congressmen, Paid for Congressional Testimony, and Arranged Secret US/Iran Meetings Pamela Geller has just published this revealing and important message from the Iranian-American human rights activist Arash Irandoost: Dear Friend,حرف بس است. متحد شویم. عمل کنیمIt is time to act. Court documents released as a result of a lawsuit filed by NIAC against Hassan Dai paint a very disturbing picture of Trita Parsi and the NIAC. They range from defrauding the federal government, lying to members of Congress, arranging secret meetings between the US and the criminal regime,...
  • CIA fuels Hong Kong riots report

    08/19/2019 7:03:35 PM PDT · by SeekAndFind · 21 replies
    A Central Intelligence Agency (CIA)-backed American foundation has been colluding with the heads of the recent Hong Kong riots with financial and strategic support, actions that Chinese experts said show the US intention of Americanization which is endangering Hong Kong. Sentaku, a Japanese monthly magazine, revealed in August how the foreign forces represented by the US, manipulate the Hong Kong chaos. The magazine said that Hong Kong extremists received significant funding from the National Endowment for Democracy (NED), which it called a CIA soft-power cutout that has played a critical role in innumerable US regime-change operations. Under the Reagan administration...

    Are there foreign forces interfering in Hong Kong affairs and fomenting unrest? Of course, there are. Just because local opposition figures laugh it off and ridicule such claims doesnt make them untrue. And I am not even talking about long-ago, on-record funding of local anti-China groups by the National Endowment for Democracy (NED), which is financed by the United States Congress. Just consider two incidents from last month, a lively period of anti-government protests. Riding on her high horse, but acting in the most irresponsible way possible, the British Labour Partys shadow Asia minister, Helen Goodman, released the names of...

    President Trump issued the first veto of his presidency Friday afternoon against a resolution passed by the House and Senate to end the national emergency declaration on border security. Twelve Senate Republicans sided with Democrats on the issue.“Today I am vetoing this resolution. Congress has the freedom to pass this resolution and I have the duty to veto it," Trump said from the Oval Office.“People hate the word invasion, but that’s what it is," Trump continued, calling the resolution "dangerous" and "reckless." "Today I am vetoing this resolution," Pres. Trump says. "Congress has the freedom to pass this resolution,...

    WASHINGTON (AP) Special counsel Robert Muellers grand jury is investigating a prominent Democratic lobbyist and a former GOP congressman for their involvement in an influence campaign on behalf of Ukrainian interests tied to Paul Manafort, according to a person with direct knowledge of the investigation. At the center of the widening probe are Tony Podesta, a longtime Democratic operative, and Vin Weber, a former GOP congressman and leader of his own high-powered lobbying firm, Mercury LLC. The two men were hired as part of a multimillion-dollar lobbying effort directed by Manafort and longtime associate Rick Gates.

    Imagine the scandal if a foreign government had for years funneled millions of dollars to political groups in the United States in an attempt to affect the outcome of a U.S. election. Even worse, what if some of the groups that received money had been involved in a failed coup attempt against a democratically elected U.S. president? Would the U.S. public not have a right to be outraged at the attempt to manipulate our political process? Of course we would - which is why the people of Venezuela have a right to be outraged at the U.S. government's ongoing attempts...

    USA Transnational Report ^ | October 2, 2015 | New Coalition of Concerned Citizens
    Executive Summary The Iranian nuclear deal is a full capitulation to Irans terrorist mastermind Mullahs, and the latest in a series of betrayals of the American people and allies by the Obama administration. At the highest level of the administration, Barack Obamas Senior Advisor, the Iranian-born Valerie Jarrett, prioritized rapprochement with the terror state. Throughout the process and negotiations, she had the backing of billionaire investor (and Obama-backer) George Soros, and his multi-headed network of tax-exempt foundations. Their efforts were driven by deep-rooted anti-Semitism and personal greed. Meanwhile, since the mid-1990s, a small but very connected Iranian lobby (funded, in...

    The Mullahs' Voice By Kenneth R. Timmerman February 23, 2007 Irans ruling clerics have a new unofficial spokesman in Washington, who can talk circles around their official ambassadors. His name is Trita Parsi, and he is a protg of Francis Fukayama, the policy heavy-weight who has now turned against the Bush agenda of promoting freedom in the Middle East as an antidote to terror. In a remarkable round-up of official Iranian government views, presented as objective analysis on C-SPAN this past Saturday, Feb. 17, Parsi urged the United States government to open up diplomacy and dialogue with Irans rulers...

Ney pled guilty to charges of conspiracy and making false statements in relation to the Jack Abramoff lobbying and bribery scandal. Ney reportedly received bribes from Abramoff, other lobbyists, and two foreign businessmen - a felon and an arms dealer - in exchange for using his position to advance their interests. Conspicuously missing from this dossier of disservice to the country was Neys assistance in the creation of a Washington-based lobbying...

    The National Endowment for Democracy (NED), is a private, nonprofit organization, was founded in the early 1980's under the influence of Ronald Reagan for "supporting democracy abroad". So we've had that going on for years. The NED basically does overtly what the CIA used to do covertly. It funds civil society groups and organizations that fit within U.S. strategic interests in various countries.

    What could the Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR) and the National Iranian American Council (NIAC) possibly have in common? CAIR founders had close ties to Hamas, Palestinian Sunni Islamic extremists. NIAC and its main spokesman, Trita Parsi, have become apologists for the regime in Tehran, which exports a rival Shiite brand of Islamic extremism. Sunnis and Shias. We all know the story. They hate each other worse than Irish Catholics and Irish Protestants. Right? Well, no. As I pointed out in Countdown to Crisis: the Coming Nuclear Showdown with Iran, Sunnis and Shias get along just fine when it...

    I just got a phone call from the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee, asking for a donation. When I tried to calmly and politely explain that Im no longer associating myself with the Democrats because they dont consider Joe Lieberman a Democrat anymore, the caller interrupted me and said, Well, thats true. Hes not a Democrat. Hes been acting like a Republican. I responded that thats a distortion of his record and briefly elaborated on why Lieberman is by no means a Republican. The caller again disagreed with me, saying, Well, if you look at the way hes been acting for...

    At, the following message appears: "This Account Is Under Construction" According to Lieberman's campaign communications director, Marion Steinfels, "Yep, we've been hacked." "There's a coordinated effort to overloaded our bandwith and that has brought down our website and our e-mail," she said. The attack began around mid-morning, she said. Steinfels said the company that hosts the campaign website is investigating. It's the third time the site was broken into; it's the second time within a month. Lieberman opponents might suggest that the Lieberman campaign forgot to pay its bill; Steinfels says that's totally untrue. Or that the campaign is...

    EAST HAVEN, Conn. - Two days before the Democratic primary, U.S. Sen. Joe Lieberman made what he called his closing argument on his record Sunday as he tries to gain ground on upstart challenger Ned Lamont, who is leading in the latest poll. Lieberman, a three-term incumbent and his partys vice presidential candidate in 2000, has been dogged by liberal Democrats angry at him for supporting the war in Iraq . Lamont, a political newcomer and founder of a cable company, has capitalized on the wars unpopularity in Connecticut by accusing Lieberman of being too close to Republicans and President...

    HARTFORD, Conn., Aug. 3 -- Democratic challenger Ned Lamont, riding strong antiwar sentiment, has surged to a significant lead over embattled Sen. Joseph I. Lieberman (D-Conn.) heading into Tuesday's Senate primary, according to a Quinnipiac University poll released here Thursday. The poll showed Lamont ahead of Lieberman by 54 percent to 41 percent, underscoring the challenger's clear advantage. Facing a likely defeat, Lieberman has scrapped plans for a massive and costly get-out-the-vote operation on primary day, according to several Democratic sources. Instead, he will shift some of his resources into more television commercials designed to highlight his accomplishments for the...

"These two leaders represent hope and bring voice to many people who have been disenfranchised," Lamont spokeswoman Liz Dupont-Diehl said of the two.

The Post commended Lieberman for his ability to work in a bipartisan manner to help advance legislation in Washington, while noting that his support for the war, the galvanizing issue in the race, is a legitimate issue to raise. "But it seems that Mr. Lieberman is also being pummeled...
