[DAILYCALLER] George Nader, a Lebanese-American businessman who was a key witness in the special counsel’s probe, was charged earlier in July with transporting a 14-year-old European boy to the U.S. for sex, according to an indictment unsealed Friday.
Nader was charged on three counts, including a charge for possessing child pornography and one for traveling with a minor to engage in illegal sexual activity. He is accused of transporting the teenage boy from Europe to his home in the U.S. in 2000.
The indictment, which was handed down July 3, comes on top of one unsealed in June against Nader, who was a longtime adviser to the crown prince of the United Arab Emirates. Nader played a key role in setting up a meeting in January 2017 between defense contractor Erik Prince and the head of Russia’s direct investment fund in the Seychelles.
Nader also met during the presidential transition period with Jared Kushner, and worked closely with Elliot Broidy, a former top Republican fundraiser who is reportedly under investigation for bribery and money laundering. In August 2016, Nader offered help to the Trump campaign during a meeting at Trump Tower with Donald Trump ...New York real estate developer, described by Dems as illiterate, racist, misogynistic, and what ever other unpleasant descriptions they can think of, elected by the rest of us as 45th President of the United States... Jr. and Prince.
Nader, 60, was interviewed multiple times during the special counsel’s investigation, all but one time under a proffer agreement with prosecutors. Nader is mentioned approximately 120 times in the special counsel’s report, but there is no mention of his long history of alleged child sex crimes.
[DAILYCALLER] Sen. Kyrsten Sinema is aiming to implement a program at the U.S.-Mexico border that would speed up the removal of migrants colonists without valid asylum claims.
The Arizona Democrat joined eight other senators in signing a letter Wednesday to acting Homeland Security Secretary Kevin McAleenan, The Arizona Republic reported.
The letter detailed how the pilot program, which is called "Operation Safe Return," would allow for some migrants colonists to be deported within 15 days.
"This pilot program would apply to families who aren’t claiming ’credible fear,’ which of course is the first threshold in seeking asylum," Sinema told The Arizona Republic. "If someone says, ’I left my country because I can’t make a living,’ [or] ’It’s hard to take care of my family’ ‐ that’s what we call an economic migrant."
Border Patrol would be given one to three days for "detailed, fair and accurate interviews" with migrant families. If the families are fearful of returning to their home countries, they would be deported, the newspaper reported.
Go hard left to get the nomination and then pretend you are in the center and never said/did the stuff the MSM won’t mention. Tired but still effective playbook as low g as the folks watch NBCCBSABCNPR

I looked into this Muslim Caucus a bit.
It seems new and not a front for CAIR
They seem very secular. No imam on the board or as advisers. No obvious connection to either CAIR or any other existing orgs. Ilhan and Rashida are not on the board or advisers either although Keith Ellison is an honorary.

[NYPOST] NY Fairness PAC’s purchases for Hizzoner’s campaign included:
$40,000 in digital media consulting services purchased on May 15, the day before de Blasio’s launch;
$8,562 for “launch weekend travel,” including $3,970.70 in plane tickets bought on United Airlines, American Airlines and JetBlue Airways on May 16 and May 17;
$4,200 for rent at The Yard, the Brooklyn coworking space where de Blasio’s campaign is headquartered, which was paid in June.
However, the campaign booked the PAC’s spending as a debt, not as a contribution — a legal maneuver that stunned lawyers, campaign finance experts and political consultants.
“It appears de Blasio’s state PAC spending is in excess of federal limits,” said Tyler Cole, a top lawyer at Issue One, a Washington, DC, watchdog group that focuses on campaign finance reform. “Federal candidates must run their campaigns out of federally regulated committees — the law is only meaningful if they abide by the federal limits.”
He added: “You can’t allow candidates to use state committees to do an end-run around the law.”
The maneuver of listing state PAC expenditures as a campaign debt for a federal campaign instead of a donation stunned one Democratic strategist.
The donation limit end-run was “among the most creative ways to circumvent election laws that I’ve ever seen,” the source said.
“If it’s not a violation of the letter of the law, it’s certainly a violation of the spirit of the law,” the person added.
Warning - off topic comment - sorta, sorta not.
Looking at the number of views of posted articles over the past year or so, it's easy to spot the trend. Articles at the top of the page generally get fewer views than those at the bottom. That is, traditional "War on Terror" items are becoming of less interest than local issues. One theory is that war fatigue is setting in... just tired of reading about the latest splodydope. My own feeling is that the war has just moved closer to home. The terrorists that represent an existential threat are more likely to be found in NYC, LA and Portland than in Kabul or Damascus. (The jury is still out on Tehran).
We’ve always had heavy discussions of articles about politics and culture — some pretty serious flame wars on the subject in the old days, too. I’ll go directly to a few articles and commenters that catch my eye, then go back to the beginning and read down to the last comment at the end, to ensure that I’m up to date on the current WoT battlefronts. I apologize for not keeping up with the weekly Europe/Britain/Australia round ups, but it required more time than I have.
Sub consciously many Americans are loosing interest in protecting the West when Europe is allowing rampant Islamic migration into their countries. And when news organizations over there such as the BBC are giving a lot of supportive coverage to extreme leftist politicians in the US such as AOC.
Doesn't matter anyway. In 2016, he was the shiny new Socialist in a field of moderates. Now, he's just another old white man who repeats other's crazy ideas. In 2019 the Dem party moved hard left while Bernie stayed his ground and got trampled.
Besides...who can stand grating NY accent!
