This Is Why First Lady Melania Isn’t Going to Singapore With President Trump

The leftist media has been engaged in conspiracy theories about First Lady Melania Trump’s whereabouts for weeks, despite knowing she underwent serious surgery in May.

The latest criticism is the First Lady’s absence from President Trump’s upcoming trips to the G7 summit in Canada and his meeting with North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un in Singapore next week.

Speaking to reporters from the South Lawn of the White House before taking off for the G7 Friday morning, President Trump explained why his wife won’t be joining him.

“The First Lady is great…she wanted to go — can’t fly for one month,” he said. “The doctors say. She had a big operation. That was a, close to a four-hour operation. And she’s doing great.” . . .

U.S. Embassy in China Warns Americans About Potential Sonic Attacks Abroad

The U.S. Embassy in China on Friday sent out an alert to Americans traveling abroad that they needed to seek medical attention immediately if they start to experience similar symptoms shared by U.S. staffers in China and Cuba.

The State Department is taking the most recent reports in China very seriously and alerted staff in the country after consulate staffers fell ill in the city of Guangzhou in May, according to Politico. At least two diplomats have recently been evacuated from China after having heard strange noises, and the number impacted may be on the rise.

State Department spokeswoman Heather Nauert also said at the time that the Chinese government assured the State Department that it is investigating the symptoms felt by the U.S. government employee.

. . .

The FBI launched an investigation that lasted a year following attacks in Havana, but they were unable to determine what caused the phenomena. The incident rattled U.S.-Cuba relations, but the occurrence of similar symptoms in China has raised suspicions about whether China, Russia, or another country might be to blame. The FBI and medical experts still do not have a lot of answers when it comes to what has caused the mysterious illness.

Shock Report: Obama Lied to Congress and Skirted Sanctions to Try to Funnel Cash to Iran

A Senate report unveiled Wednesday displayed shocking new revelations about the “scandal-free” Obama administration and its hell-bent, desperate quest to secure a deal with the Iranian regime.

On Wednesday, the U.S. Senate Homeland Security Committee revealed that the Obama administration ignored U.S. sanctions, lied to Congress, and misled the American people in order to funnel billions of dollars to the terrorist regime that rules Iran.

The Associated Press reports:

“The Obama administration secretly sought to give Iran access — albeit briefly — to the U.S. financial system by sidestepping sanctions kept in place after the 2015 nuclear deal, despite repeatedly telling Congress and the public it had no plans to do so.”

The Senate committee found that the Obama Treasury Department planned to issue a sanctions-thwarting license to empower two U.S. banks to help Iran convert $5.7 billion Omani rials into Euros. They did this by first exchanging the Omani currency into U.S. dollars.

“If the Omani bank had allowed the exchange without such a license, it would have violated sanctions that bar Iran from transactions that touch the U.S. financial system,” the AP report added.

“The Obama administration misled the American people and Congress because they were desperate to get a deal with Iran,” Sen. Rob Portman, the chair of the Permanent Subcommittee on Investigations, said in a statement. “Despite claims both before and after the Iran deal was completed that the U.S. financial system would remain off limits, the Obama administration issued a specific license allowing Iran to convert billions of dollars in assets using the U.S. financial system.” (For more from the author of “Obama Lied to Congress and Skirted Sanctions to Try to Funnel Cash to Iran” please click HERE)

Secret Genocide: Thousands Christians Killed, Pregnant Women Raped

Christians are being slaughtered in Myanmar and the country’s government is doing its best to hide this fact from the world, a recent investigative report revealed.

“The area is hidden from much of the world, as the Buddhist-majority Myanmar has denied journalists and aid agencies access to the region,” The Christian Post reported.

International observers, foreign diplomats and politicians have also largely been denied access to the country by Myanmar’s government officials.

However, an investigative team from Sky News managed to travel to the isolated region and were told by locals that a “second genocidal campaign” is being waged by the Burmese military.

Already over 700,000 people have been forced to flee Bangladesh in the face of what the United Nations calls a “textbook example of ethnic cleansing” against the region’s Rohingya Muslims.

Now a second ethnic cleansing is being carried out against the minority Christian Kachin people.

“I am convinced the Burmese government is trying to ethnically cleanse the Kachin people,” a mother of four by the name of Lashi Ókawn Ja, told Sky News.

“Whenever they see Kachin people they try to kill us and they rape the women, even the women who are pregnant,” she said.

The persecution against Muslims from the Myanmar military has gone unchallenged, which is the reason their attention has now turned to Christians as well, locals said.

According to Sky News, the military attacks the Christians are carried out at random and indiscriminately, primarily from the air or by using artillery.

“Maybe their actions against us are not so sudden as their violence against the Rohingya, but their intentions are just the same,” said vice president of the Kachin Independence Council General Sumlut Gunmaw.

“They want to eliminate us.”

Gunmaw said he delivered several documents explaining the violence against the Kachin people to British and UN diplomats, but the allegations have been ignored.

Open Doors USA, a non-profit group that supports persecuted Christians worldwide, ranks Myanmar as number 24 in country’s where Christians face the worst persecution. (For more from the author of “Secret Genocide: Thousands Christians Killed, Pregnant Women Raped” please click HERE)

Images Show North Korea Destroying Missile Facility

By AP. Satellite imagery shows North Korea razed some facilities used for testing ballistic missiles last month after declaring it was suspending nuclear explosions and missile launches, a U.S. website reported Wednesday.

A stand used for missile ejection tests was demolished near Kusong in the country’s northwest, according to North Korea expert Joseph Bermudez. Ejection tests are to evaluate the initial launch of a missile from a canister and fire up its first-stage engine rather than a full-blown launch. . .

In April, North Korean leader Kim Jong Un announced he was suspending ballistic missile and nuclear testing, paving the way for negotiations on its nuclear weapons program with the United States. This will culminate in a historic summit next week in Singapore with President Donald Trump. (Read more from “Images Show North Korea Destroying Missile Facility” HERE)

North Korea Razes Missile Test Facility Ahead of Meeting With Trump

By The New York Times. . .A “key missile test stand” that was used for testing missile ejections from canisters was demolished at a test site near Kusong in North Korea’s northwest, Joseph S. Bermudez Jr., an expert on the country’s weapons systems, said in a report published Wednesday on the website 38 North.

The Kusong test site was being closely monitored by missile experts because North Korea launched its first solid-fuel midrange ballistic missile, known as Pukguksong-2, from there in February last year.

Besides its intercontinental ballistic missiles, solid-fuel missiles have been among the most worrisome additions to North Korea’s growing arsenal of ballistic missiles. They can be launched faster and are easier to transport and hide, making them more suitable for surprise attacks.

The Trump Effect: Boeing Will Stop Selling to Iran

On Wednesday, as a result of President Trump’s decision last month to pull the United States out of the disastrous nuclear deal, Boeing announced it will not deliver aircraft to Iran. A Boeing spokesman stated, “We have not delivered any aircraft to Iran, and given we no longer have a license to sell to Iran at this time, we will not be delivering any aircraft. We did not factor the Iran orders into our order backlog either.”

Boeing had already delayed the delivery dates on the Iran planes; during the Obama Administration, Boeing obtained U.S. Treasury licenses to begin conducting business. In December 2016, Boeing announced it would sell 80 aircraft valued at $16.6 billion to Iran Air. In April 2017, Boeing announced it would sell Iran Aseman Airlines 30 Boeing 737 MAX aircraft for $3 billion, with purchase rights for 30 additional aircraft.

In late May, The Wall Street Journal reported that General Electric was planning to end sales of oil and natural-gas equipment to Iran later this year. A GE spokeswoman asserted, “We are adapting our activities in Iran as necessary to conform with recent changes in U.S. law. GE’s activities in Iran to date have been limited and in compliance with U.S. government rules, licenses and policies.”

As Dr. Emanuele Ottolenshi of The Foundation For Defense of Democracies (FDD) testified in April 2017 before the Testimony for House Financial Services Monetary Policy and Trade, and Terrorism and Illicit Finance Subcommittees:

The administration should suspend licensing for aircraft deals with Iranian commercial carriers while it conducts a thorough review of their role in the airlifts to Syria. The U.S. should proceed to revoke licenses and re-impose sanctions if that role were to be ascertained. But the only way to prevent U.S. manufacturers such as Boeing from supplying aircraft to Iranian entities involved in material support for terrorism is to rely on U.S. non-nuclear sanctions. While the United States cannot stop every plane, it can use sanctions to exact a heavy price on Iran’s aviation sector. …

Trump Drops Hilarious Line in ‘Testy’ Call With Canadian PM

In a very important, very “exclusive” report by CNN, sources say that President Donald J. Trump waxed historical in his rather “testy” call with his Canadian counterpart Justin Trudeau.

According to CNN, in his May 25 phone call with Trudeau about the new tariffs on steel and aluminum imports the Trump administration is imposing on Canada, Trump went full 1812 on the prime minister. CNN reports:

According to the sources, Trudeau pressed Trump on how he could justify the tariffs as a “national security” issue. In response, Trump quipped to Trudeau, “Didn’t you guys burn down the White House?” referring to the War of 1812.

Unfortunately, as CNN makes sure to point out, Trump got his facts a little crossed up: Yes, the White House was set ablaze during the War of 1812, but it was the British who were lighting fires. And like most Trump mix-ups, there’s a kernel of truth somewhere in there. . .

Anxious to follow up on its exclusive information, CNN asked one of its sources how Trudeau received Trump’s quasi-historical joke, the not particularly gleeful source replied: “To the degree one can ever take what is said as a joke. The impact on Canada and ultimately on workers in the US won’t be a laughing matter.” (Read more from “Trump Drops Hilarious Line in ‘Testy’ Call With Canadian PM” HERE)

Israeli Embassy Responds With Humor to Iran’s Threat to Eradicate Entire Country

It has now been about a month since President Donald Trump withdrew the United States from the faulty Iran nuclear deal entered into with the dangerous Islamic Republic by the prior administration of former President Barack Obama.

Since that consequential event, the leaders of Iran have issued bellicose and hostile threats against not only the U.S., but also our nation’s closest ally in the Middle East, the nation of Israel.

According to Townhall, the top leader of Iran just issued yet another existential threat against the small Jewish nation of roughly 9 million individuals.

“Our stance against Israel is the same stance we have always taken,” the Ayatollah Khamenei tweeted Sunday. “#Israel is a malignant cancerous tumor in the West Asian region that has to be removed and eradicated: it is possible and it will happen.”

Nothing like calling a neighboring country a “malignant cancerous tumor” that must be “removed and eradicated” to show the world that one’s own nation has nothing but peaceful intentions, as had been routinely promised during the negotiation of the Iran nuclear deal.

Despite the rather obvious threat of complete annihilation lodged against the nation of Israel by their bitter rivals in Iran, the Israeli Embassy in America responded to the threat with a humorous GIF from the movie “Mean Girls.”

Robert Mueller’s Israel Problem

As the Mueller probe drags along into year two of its supposed investigation into Russian meddling in the 2016 election, a disturbing pattern has emerged. The special counsel has become obsessed with the state of Israel. The former FBI director is deeply suspicious, to the point of total paranoia, that there is a grand conspiracy involving the Trump campaign and transition officials as potential agents for the Israelis.

George Papadopoulos, the Israeli spy?

On Monday, the Daily Caller reported that Mueller had allegedly coerced Trump campaign adviser George Papadopoulos to plead guilty to lesser charges, after threatening that he would be prosecuted as an Israeli spy.

There isn’t much public evidence to suggest that Papadopoulos has substantial ties to Israel. Born to Greek immigrants, he has made a career of working on eastern Mediterranean energy issues. He has advocated for the very uncontroversial position that there should be a closer diplomatic and economic bond between Israel, Cyprus, Greece, and the United States. Nonetheless, the prospect of being prosecuted under the Espionage Act is terrifying, as a conviction carries a lengthy prison sentence.

While it is supposedly investigating Russia’s activities in 2016, the Mueller probe’s alleged Papadopoulos threat is just one of many instances in which the special counsel has instead exhibited a hyper focus on Israel-related activities.

Gen. Michael Flynn and Israel

In December, Gen. Michael Flynn pled guilty to making false statements to the FBI. Notably, one of the charges levelled at the decorated general was that during the transition period, he communicated with the Russian ambassador to the U.S. about a coming vote concerning an anti-Israel resolution at the United Nations. Although the mainstream media and the Left accused him of breaching protocol, a transition team reaching out to world powers prior to entering office is not illegal or unusual. In fact, it’s a standard, smart practice.

President Obama was notoriously hostile to Israel, so much so that Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu reportedly called the incoming Trump administration and asked if they could rally for the defeat of the vicious U.N. resolution. The resolution passed anyway, thanks to U.N. Ambassador Samantha Power’s abstention.

Nonetheless, Mueller found it necessary to charge Flynn for misleading the FBI about his conversations with the Russian ambassador about the resolution. Additionally, as the special counsel probe drags on, evidence has emerged that Flynn did not in fact mislead the FBI about his conversations.

Jared Kushner and Israel

In November, reports emerged that Mueller was scrutinizing efforts made by Jared Kushner, a senior aide to the president, and his efforts to combat the anti-Israel U.N. resolution during the presidential transition period.

Just as Gen. Flynn had every right to defend Israel, so did Kushner. Yet Mueller’s team seemingly carried on for months with a dedicated effort to examining Kushner’s Israeli ties. As Mueller was digging into Kushner, targeted hit pieces reporting exclusive information from the Mueller probe landed in leftist outlets such as the Washington Post, NBC News, and the New York Times.

Flashback: Mueller tries to “tempt Jews” to betray USA

Mueller’s suspicions of Israel — and Jews as a whole — go back to his early days as the FBI director.

In 2004, the Mueller FBI alleged that a massive Israeli spy ring was operating out of the Pentagon. The stunning revelations sent shockwaves throughout the intelligence community, and it was followed by endless editorials painting Israel as a nefarious actor seeking to undermine the United States.

Yet it later turned out that the allegations were completely bogus. There was no Israeli spy ring, but rather, what appeared to be a deliberate attempt to target Jews for prosecution. There were several disturbing instances of the Mueller FBI running sting operations attempting to “tempt Jews” to betray their country. “All turned down the offer,” according to the Washington Post. Mueller’s attempts to lure Jews into a trap failed. The botched operation confirmed the troubling reality that elements of the U.S. intelligence community remained attached to anti-Semitism.

Mueller sends a team to Israel

Last month, Mueller sent a team of investigators to Israel in an attempt to track down the activities of at least two Israeli social media and consulting firms. Mueller’s prosecutors have seemed to suggest in leaks to the media that the Israeli firms may have colluded with the president to secure his victory.

However, both companies have flatly denied that they ever even worked with the Trump campaign in an official or unofficial capacity, yet Mueller devoted massive resources to flying his team over to Israel to investigate the matter.

The Trump-Russia dossier and its backers have their own Jewish conspiracies

If Mueller is indeed relying upon the rumors gathered in the political opposition document (which was financed by the Clinton campaign) known as the Trump-Russia dossier (and reports suggest that he is), his attempts to uncover a series of grand Israeli and Jewish conspiracies shouldn’t come as a surprise.

According to the dossier, Russian Jews and Jewish organizations are integral to the supposed links between President Trump and the Kremlin. As Lee Smith lays out in an article for Tablet magazine, dossier producer Glenn Simpson has made it clear in his public testimony that he believes there is an ongoing “secret Jewish plot to undermine American democracy.”

To this day, not a single major allegation in the dossier has been confirmed.

Old habits die hard

The evidence is not on his side, but that hasn’t stopped Mueller from sending agents halfway across the world to chase down leads garnered from politically motivated sources. As his career track record shows, this isn’t the first time Mueller has played the Israeli agent card. The first time, Mueller’s delusions ended up making a hugely embarrassing saga for the FBI. Now one year into the Mueller probe, his special counsel has yet to find evidence for any grand Israeli plot. (For more from the author of “Robert Mueller’s Israel Problem” please click HERE)

Despite Near-Total Knife Ban, UK Mom and Baby Stabbed in Broad Daylight

In the latest in a series of horrifying crimes involving knife attacks in the United Kingdom, a Pakistani national is accused of stabbing his estranged wife and their 11-month-old son.

Authorities say Rehan Khan, 25, attacked Salma Khan and their infant son with a knife Monday at the home near London where Salma Khan and their four children were living.

The 11-month-old baby remains in a critical condition. The mother, 32, is hospitalized but expected to recover.

A friend of Salma Khan claimed Rehan Khan faced being deported from the U.K. over a previous alleged attack.

The victim’s friend claimed Khan’s application for a UK visa application was rejected five days ago, in part because of Salma Khan’s accusations of domestic abuse.

“She reported he used to be a beater and harasser in the past and the court rejected (his application),” the friend told the Daily Mail.

Salma Khan is reportedly a British national who is originally from Belgium.

The friend claims she saw the suspect leaving the crime scene.

“I saw him run away, he ran so fast. I just saw blood. He carried on to the motorway,” the witness said. “He didn’t injure the other kids. He tried to kill her and kill her son, of course [her other sons] said ‘don’t kill my mummy.’

“(Salma) didn’t even have time to raise a panic alarm. she didn’t give that chance to be rescued.”

Although Britain has strict gun control laws, knives have become the weapon of choice. Britain’s Office of National Statistics showed that in September 2017, knife crime had risen 21 percent over the past year.

Skyrocketing crime rates are documented by data, Breitbart reported. The London Assembly Police and Crime Committee reported the city’s murder rate has increased 44 percent through March.

Other crimes also rose. London data showed a roughly 33 percent increase in violent robbery and burglary, a 30 percent increase in youth killings, and an 18 percent increase in rapes. Shootings rose 23 percent, the report said.

London Mayor Sadiq Khan has said the rise in crime is due to spending cuts by Britain’s government.

In response to the rise in crime, British officials have sought to impose knife control and ban the delivery of some kinds of knives to private addresses, the Independent has reported.
