💰George Nader💰

George Nader, the disgraced & recently indicted child sex trafficker & child porn aficionado is in the thick of Team Trump global shenanigans from the notorious Seychelles meet to Qatar Blockade to Psy Group & more.

MAIN THREAD
Trump’s lack of prep’n for victory & disorganized transition created a vacuum that, as RU/ME sought out access & influence, was quickly filled by a number of people eager to portray themselves as access brokers or to generate personal biz opportunities.
nytimes.com/2019/04/20/us/…
But prior to the 2016elex in addition to RU’s efforts to influence the American electorate in favor of Trump, ME foreign actors also assisted w/ the SocMed influence ops to help Trump & harm Cruz/HRC.

Nader among others were key to these influence ops to swing the elex to Trump

💰Nader - Broidy UAE & Qatar

Schemes to buy influence in US foreign policy & legislate US sanctions against Qatar a US ally for monetary consideration
April 2, 2017 George Nader, wired $2.5M to Trump fundraiser, Elliott Broidy.

Nader paid the money to Broidy to bankroll an effort to persuade the U.S. to take a hard line against Qatar, a long-time American ally but now a bitter adversary of the UAE.

The money was wired to Broidy through a company in Canada in April 2017.

A month after (May 2017) Nader received the money, Broidy sponsored a conference on Qatar's alleged ties to Islamic extremism.

"For queer folk in all post-colonial countries, the governments have to understand that these (anti-sodomy) were not our laws," @MenakaGuruswamy told CNN's Fareed Zakaria. Photo via @arundhatikatju

From Saria Eilat: Accusing Israel of "Ethnic Cleansing" & "Genocide" .. Propaganda technique whereby the victim is portrayed as the abuser & the abuser as the victim! 1) #Israel #Antisemitism #InvertedReality #EthnicCleansing #Genocide #Nazie #Holocaust #Palestinian #Propaganda
Turning the history of the Jews against them is another commonplace of antiSemitism.
2) #Antisemitism #Jews
If the Jews were victims in an actual genocide, then what better way to transfer sympathy from them to their rivals than by painting the Jews as modern Nazis perpetuating a new holocaust...this time against the poo' poo' "Palestinians" 3) #JewHate #Smears #Propaganda #bloodlibel

Today we shall recall some of the majestic scenes from #Egypt's #June30 revolution that ended with the ouster of the #MuslimBrotherhood president #MohamedMorsi

The first one in our #thread is from Ittihadia street. It is adjacent to the presidential Palace
Another one is of a huge turnout in #Alexandria around El Raml Station.

A common scene worth mentioning is of the crowds greeting Military Helicopters with laser beams as a form of celebrating the event. #June30

Yes, Russians tried to interfere in a US election in 2016, by using social media and by planting phony stories.
2) #Russia #socialmedia #phonystories #Hillary #HillaryClinton
If you look at what was planted, it is clear they wanted #HillaryClinton to be elected POTUS, because what was planted followed the left’s agenda of convincing the voters that Trump & the “right” was going to divide Americans & that #Trump was all sorts of #Negative things. 3)

I was on @ForeignPolicy's 'First Person' with @SarahAWildman

For me, it's hard to think of a story sadder than what happened to #Egypt from 2011 to 2013. I try to tell that story from my own perspective of being there in key moments

Listen to it here 👇🏾megaphone.link/PPY4576503808
I remember what it was like that night on February 11, 2011. I was in Tahrir Square earlier that day when the announcement came that Mubarak was stepping down, when the murmur of the crowd became a roar. As the memory grows more remote, I sometimes wonder: did it *really* happen?
That night, Egyptians were dancing in the streets. They had done it. They were proud. I remember thinking to myself, this is what it must feel like to not just be free, but to *feel* free. I had never seen Egyptians so joyful

Robust ties with #Qatar are part of #Pakistan's overall close strategic relationship with #Gulf/#GCC states. The internal Gulf crisis had little impact on #Islamabad's relations with Gulf states, and there's no juggling act, unlike the common perception. Ties are not zero-sum.
#Qatar's pledge to invest up to $22B in #Pakistan in coming years, on the heels of multibillion-dollar #KSA/#UAE/#Kuwait investments confirms #Gulf is of paramount economic/political/security importance for Pak, and #Islamabad is rightly involved in Gulf security arrangements.

Woooooooow....
#Erdogan’s nightmare has become a reality.
Viva @ekrem_imamoglu
Viva #Istanbul
#Erdogan tried every trick in the book, from flirting with #PKK’s Oclean, to liken @ekrem_imamoglu to #Egypt’s Sisi.
All failed.
#Imamoglu won.
Erdoganistan is officially in twilight!
#Erdogan made a major error of judgment when he ordered Istanbul re-run election.
Now, he may now try to portray himself as a democrat, but it is too late. The people of #Istanbul are the true abd BRAVE Democrats.

#IstanbulReelection- 39 Districts, 10,560,963 Votes. That’s a lot of votes to count! Down to 2 Mayoral candidates: Ruling Party #AKP candidate Yıldırım vs Main Opposition Party #CHP Candidate İmamoğlu. Polls will close at 5:00 pm here (in ~6 hours).
Over 1/3 of #Turkey’s population lives in #Istanbul. A good chunk of national GDP & many many billion dollars District budget for the elected #Mayor. #AKP lost in mayoral elections of biggest cities: #Ankara, #Izmir & #Antalya, with #Istanbul as the “hottest tamale” TBD today.

How can we as #Americans accept that our government is responsible for the #genocide of #Yemeni civilians? How can we as a society not demand by every means necessary for the world's greatest #Humanitarian #Crisis to end?

#Yemen before #War
#Yemen a beautiful country full of beautiful #Yemeni who simply want to be left in peace. A country that's only fault is it's location in the world. A location that for the #US is strategically located close to #SaudiArabia, #Iran, and #Israel.
The #UnitedStates #Indoctrination and #Propaganda machine #FakeNews would have the American people believe we are helping to ensure peace and stability in the region. This is a claim that by now ALL AMERICANS should know is false!

A few thoughts on the latest sectarian incident in Minya & the disparity between the words of President Sisi & actions of the security forces. The incident itself is like many others. Average citizens form a lynch mob & attack #Copts & their properties
That citizens can form a lynch mob is nothing new or particular to #Egypt. Happens everywhere, and historically even in the US. The issue is one of official reaction, both during the event and in subsequent days.
The police are of no use during the incident. "Reconciliation sessions" afterwards are meant to hide rather than highlight the problem, often to the disadvantage of the victims. Why is that?

I watched the entire proceedings of #OICMakkahSummit for about 8 hrs, and live tweeted at @Office_AQPk interesting tidbits & observations. Here's some observations on PM #ImranKhan's speech. /1

#AhmedQuraishi @AQpk
PM #Pakistan #ImranKhan was well received at #OICMakkahSummit. #MBS, King of #Bahrain, Pres of #Iraq, PM #Bangladesh, informally interacted with him. #Saudi hosts opened doors at holy sites for only two leaders this time: President Al-Sisi of #Egypt & PM Khan of Pakistan. /2
PM #ImranKhan speech was among the long ones at #OICMakkahSummit. It was extempore. Many Muslim leaders didn't get to speak due to paucity of time. Immediately after PM's speech, Secretariat asked leaders to keep remarks short. PM's speech was among the well delivered speeches./3
