Actor Anthony Hopkins: ‘Donald Trump Is A True Lider And Liberals Hate Him Because They Are Afraid Of Him, Afraid Of What He Might Do. He Can Change Things And That Upsets Them Greatly.” Do You Support Him?

The “Westworld” and “Hannibal” star declared his support for President Donald Trump on Fox News.

Here’s what this gentleman has stated before the election:

“I want us to become self-reliant again… The only true leader out there is Donald Trump, for me, because he’s a builder.”

“I want us to become self-reliant again… The only true leader out there is Donald Trump, for me, because he’s a builder,” he said. “He understands better than anybody that if we lose the people — average age is 58 years old by the way of people that actually know how to build things — once they’re gone, they’re gone and we don’t have anybody comin’ up behind them.”

After Donald Trump has became a leader of America he continued to support him and few days ago he made fresh new statement about the celebrities going against Trump:

“I think there will be a lot of people apologizing to him at the end of his first four years,” he revealed to FOX Business Network’s Stuart Varney, of Varney and Co, on Tuesday.

Hopkins, who is a legendary actor, is one of the few famous people that openly support President Trump.He added: “I think that he gets all this hate just because they are afraid of him, afraid of what he might do. He can change things and that upsets them greatly.”


Pope Says Christianity No Better Than Islam

On Wednesday, Pope Francis put Islam, Christianity, and Judaism all in the same boat.

In an impassioned address the Vicar of Christ denied the existence of Islamic terrorism, while simultaneously asserting that “the ecological crisis is real.”

“Christian terrorism does not exist, Jewish terrorism does not exist, and Muslim terrorism does not exist. They do not exist,” Francis said in his speech to a world meeting of populist movements.

What he probably should have said is that “not all Christians are terrorists and not all Muslims are terrorists” — a fact evident to all — however, the terminology he used suggests that the hundreds of Islamic terror groups around the world do not exist.

Overlooking ISIS, the Muslim Brotherhood, and terrorists for the sake of political correctness will never yield good results.

“No people is criminal or drug-trafficking or violent,” Francis said, while also suggesting that terrorism the terrorism that does occur is primarily a result of “economic inequalities” rather than religious beliefs. “The poor and the poorer peoples are accused of violence yet, without equal opportunities, the different forms of aggression and conflict will find a fertile terrain for growth and will eventually explode.”

In addition, the Guardian reported that Pope Francis said it was wrong to identify Islam with violence and that social injustice and idolatry of money were among the prime causes of terrorism.

“I think it is not right to identity Islam with violence,” he told reporters aboard the plane taking him back to Rome after a five-day trip to Poland. “This is not right and this is not true.”

The pope was responding to a question about the killing on 26 July of an 85-year-old Roman Catholic priest during a church service in western France. The attackers forced the priest to his knees and slit his throat. The killing was claimed by Islamic State.

“I think that in nearly all religions there is a always a small fundamentalist group,” he said, adding “We have them,” referring to Catholicism.

“I don’t like to talk about Islamic violence because every day when I look at the papers I see violence here in Italy – someone killing his girlfriend, someone killing his mother-in-law. These are baptised Catholics,” he said.

“If I speak of Islamic violence, I have to speak of Catholic violence. Not all Muslims are violent,” he said.

He said there were various causes of terrorism.

“I know it dangerous to say this but terrorism grows when there is no other option and when money is made a god and it, instead of the person, is put at the centre of the world economy,” he said.

“That is the first form of terrorism. That is a basic terrorism against all humanity. Let’s talk about that,” he said.

When he started the trip on Wednesday, the pope said the killing of the priest and a string of string of other attacks were proof the “world is at war” but that it was not caused by religion.

He told reporters on the plane that lack of economic opportunities for young people in Europe was also to blame for terrorism.

“I ask myself how many young people that we Europeans have left devoid of ideals, who do not have work. Then they turn to drugs and alcohol or enlist in Isis,” he said, referring to the group also known as Islamic State.

The Numbers Are In: Here’s How Much Soros Spent Opposing Trump

George Soros is the the definition of a comic book villain — an elderly billionaire with more interest in sabotaging the country than helping out the common citizen. And he’s proven over and over again that he’s willing to go the extra mile to oppose anything remotely pro-American.

So, it’s really no surprise that he spent a fortune in his efforts to oppose President Donald Trump, but the good news is that it hasn’t worked yet.

DailyWire reports:

George Soros spent a record sixteen million dollars trying to oppose President Donald Trump’s agenda during his first year in office, a report from The Washington Free Beacon found. It’s the most the foreign billionaire has ever spent trying to thwart a president’s agenda.

And that’s just one organization — Soros’s Open Society Foundation, the group Soros uses to coordinate and direct all of his other progressive efforts.

The money was not evenly distributed throughout the year. Soros spent only around $4 million bankrolling opposition to the president during the first half of the year, choosing to focus his efforts, instead, on international projects; and only $2 million over the summer — though that total is more than Soros spent in an entire year during the Obama administration.

In the last quarter of 2017, Soros “ramped up,” The Free Beacon says, spending more than $10 million, mostly on groups opposed to direct conflict with North Korea. Documents list Soros’ contributions going directly to the “Restricted First Use of Nuclear Weapons Act of 2017, the National Defense Authorization Act for fiscal year 2018, and the Preventing Preemptive War in North Korea Act of 2017.”

The organization also pushed activists to admonish the government about relief efforts in Puerto Rico, to advocate against any tax reforms that included tax cuts, and to force action on illegal immigration. If that list sounds familiar, it’s because it’s largely the agenda of all progressive groups during the last quarter of 2017.

Notably, Soros does not appear to have pushed impeachment. He left that to billionaire environmentalist Tom Steyer.

Open Society is only one of several organizations directly tied to Soros. More visible organizations include Demos,, and Indivisible, which formed in the days following the 2016 presidential election with a board of directors pulled almost exclusively from the Open Society Foundation.

BREAKING: NFL Star Arrested On Felony Robbery Charges

The NFL is not only full of liberal social justice warriors, it also has more than its fair share of felons. We’re talking about men who get paid millions of dollars to toss a football around willing to throw that American dream away because they felt like beating on a woman or robbing a store. I mean, are you kidding me?

That’s the case once again in Baltimore, with a star defensive player getting caught up in a robbery scheme. How stupid can a person be? reports:

Baltimore Ravens cornerback Marlon Humphrey was arrested on Thursday and charge with third degree robbery, according to Michael Casagrande of

Humphrey was booked in Tuscaloosa County Jail and released on $2,500 bond.

According to the report:

Third degree robbery is a Class C felony in the state of Alabama. According to state law, it becomes third degree robbery when:

“He/she uses force against the person of the owner of the property or any person present with intent to overcome that person’s physical resistance or physical power of resistance; or (2) he/she threatens the imminent use of force against the person of the owner of the property or any person present with intent to compel acquiescence to the taking of or escaping with the property.”
Humphrey tweeted this out in the early hours of Thursday morning:

Humphrey is a native of Hoover, Alabama and attended the University of Alabama. The Ravens selected Humphrey in the first round of the 2016 draft. He played in all 16 games as a rookie had had two interceptions and 30 tackles.

SHARE this all over social media to remind America that the NFL is full of felony-committing thugs!


JUST IN: Oprah Announces Plans For 2020 Election

Not so long ago, liberals were screaming and crying about the thought of Donald Trump running for President. One of the primary reasons was that because Trump was a billionaire TV personality, he somehow wasn’t qualified to hold the office. How dare someone like that even think about running.

But when Oprah Winfrey, another billionaire TV personality, even remotely hinted at the thought of running in 2020, the liberals were selling “Oprah 2020” t-shirts within hours. But for now, it appears that their dreams of President Winfrey may have just been dashed by the queen of daytime TV herself…

Yahoo reports:

WASHINGTON (Reuters) – Media mogul Oprah Winfrey has no interest in running for U.S. president in 2020, she said in an interview with InStyle magazine published on Thursday after weeks of speculation and calls to run fueled by a speech she made at the Golden Globes.

“It’s not something that interests me … I met with someone the other day who said that they would help me with a campaign. That’s not for me,” Winfrey said.

Winfrey, who is known by millions on first-name basis, first rose to fame as the host of a television talk show, using it to build a media empire that spans magazine publishing, movie and television production, cable TV and satellite radio. Born into poverty, she is now one of the world’s wealthiest women.

Winfrey has long been associated with Democratic Party politics and fundraising and has raised millions of dollars for various causes. Unlike every U.S. president before Donald Trump, she has no prior political or military experience.

Winfrey’s longtime partner, Stedman Graham, said to the Los Angeles Times that she would run for president. Trump said he could beat her in the 2020 election.

BREAKING: NFL Rejects Superbowl Ad For Pro-Anthem Veteran’s Group

The NFL has had its standards lowered this past season by millionaire players disrespecting the flag, players beating their wives/girlfriends and by the coward who leads the organization — Roger Goodell.

Just when you thought the league couldn’t possible get any lower or make any more shockingly dumb moves, news broke this morning that a massive veteran’s group known as AMVETS just had a nasty run-in with the NFL…

DailyWire reports:

AMVETS officials have a message for the NFL: “Freedom of speech works both ways.”

In what AMVETS say is a case of “corporate censorship,” the NFL, which, unlike several other professional sports leagues, has allowed its players to protest the singing of the national anthem — and has paid dearly for doing so — has refused to run the “#PleaseStand” ad the veterans group produced in response to the divisive protest movement.

“Freedom of speech works both ways,” said AMVETS National Commander Marion Polk, the Army Times reports. “We respect the rights of those who choose to protest, as these rights are precisely what our members have fought — and in many cases died — for. But imposing corporate censorship to deny that same right to those veterans who have secured it for us all is reprehensible and totally beyond the pale.”

The group says the $30,000 ad featured service members saluting Old Glory as well as their response to the #TakeAKnee message: “#PleaseStand.”

NFL Vice President of Communications Brian McCarthy told the Army Times in a statement that the league asked AMVETS to change their message to “Please Stand for Our Veterans,” but the group was unable to make changes in time for the deadline. The NFL is running a similar ad from the Veterans of Foreign Wars with the message, “We Stand for Veterans.”

While the NFL for two years now has allowed players to sit, kneel, raise a fist or perform other symbolic acts during the performance of “The Star-Spangled Banner,” the league says the Super Bowl is not a time for political messages. The Super Bowl, said McCarthy, has “never been a place for advertising that could be considered by some as a political statement.”

Despite the league’s current claims, as The Daily Wire highlighted last year, Super Bowl ads have often been politically charged.

Amid backlash against the anthem protests, players have insisted that their refusal to stand to honor the flag is not an act of protest against the nation as a whole, and thus is not an act of disrespect for those who have fought and are fighting to protect her. However, the founder of the movement, still unemployed former QB Colin Kaepernick, very clearly spelled out the reason he chose to initially sit and then kneel for the anthem: to protest the country as a whole.

“I am not going to stand up to show pride in a flag for a country that oppresses black people and people of color,” Kaepernick said in August 2016 during the 2016 preseason. “To me, this is bigger than football and it would be selfish on my part to look the other way. There are bodies in the street and people getting paid leave and getting away with murder.”

Kaepernick followed up that statement with other public denunciations of America, even at one point comparing her unfavorably to Communist Cuba.

The protests escalated in September 2017 after President Trump called on league owners to fire the “son of a b****” players who continued the divisive act of disrespect, with over 200 players refusing to honor the flag one weekend.

SHARE this on Facebook if you’re absolutely outraged at the NFL for censoring this group’s Superbowl ad!

Contents of Missing FBI Agents’ Texts Leaked … Plan to Assassinate POTUS?

Elder Patriot – On Sunday we discussed a post by QAnon who purports to be a Deep State Patriot intent on exposing the Secret Societies within our government that are waging war against President Trump.  In that post Q detailed what is in the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence memo that is going to blow the lid off the treasonous intent of Hillary Clinton, Barack Obama, the highest levels of his administration, and the entire Democratic Party.

Today we bring you another post from Q detailing why five months of text messages between FBI agents have disappeared.  This screenshot is from

Here it is reformatted to make it easier to read.

At the very top of his post Q poses the question whether the missing texts discuss the assassination of President Trump and/or his family members.

That might seem like the work of an over active imagination but consider that we already know from the last text message between FBI agent Peter Strzok and his mistress, FBI attorney Lisa Page that they discussed holding a meeting of a “Secret Society” the following the election of President Trump.

After that, the next five-months of texts between the two have gone missing as are the devices that Strzok and Page used to communicate with each other.

House Oversight Committee Chairman Trey Gowdy explained why this is a concern:

“You have this insurance policy in the Spring of 2016 and then the day after the election  … there’s a text exchange between these two FBI agents — these two (supposed to be objective, fact-centric) FBI agents saying, ‘perhaps this is the first meeting of the secret society.”  

Now Senator Ron Johnson, Chairman of the Committee on Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs came forward yesterday to tell Fox News’ Brett Baier that an informant has told his committee the Secret Society held meetings (plural) offsite of the Justice Department offices.

WTF were they discussing that they couldn’t discuss among themselves inside the department?  It has already been established that they had every right to be critical of the president as long as they conducted their work fairly. 

Johnson said they do not yet know the number of members of this Secret Society or how many times they met.

But, this is alarming and should frighten every American.  Under former FBI Directors Robert Mueller (now the special counsel charged with taking the president) and Jim Comey the bureau came more to resemble the KGB than the formerly highly respected crime-fighting agency we once revered.

The fact that current director, Christopher Wray has been doing more to protect these traitors than to purge his agency speaks to the level of corruption that has permeated the FBI.  Why are rank and file agents who know what is going on remaining silent?  What are they afraid of?

Q next raises the question what if the missing texts contain evidence that foreign allies were involved?  Repeat, ALLIES, not enemies.  Did Barack Obama so poison the well over the last eight years that one or more of the countries we believe to be friendlies would actually participate in a coup d’état of a duly elected U.S. president?

Do not think in terms of foreign leaders making this decision.  They are subject to their own rogue Deep State operators who are equally committed to the global Marxist movement – either because of ideological belief or because they are willing highly-paid mercenaries.

Is there any wonder that President Trump employs members of his own security team to protect him?

Q then tells us what most of us have already surmised – except for Mueller because if he fails to take down the president he and members of that Secret Society will be rotting in prison for the remained of the lives – there is nothing to the Russian collusion narrative.

Next Q tells us that we have only scratched the tip of the iceberg.  The “AS THE WORLD TURNS” line is cryptic but it suggests that the plot involves far more people, agencies, and governments than we can imagine.

This was perhaps inevitable once a worldwide network of shared intelligence was established following 9/11.  It was only a matter of time from that point until rogue operators, backed by global bankers, turned the system against the people. 

Think the Obama administration’s corrupting of the intelligence community and the FISA court here in the U.S. and put it on steroids globally where governments offer far less protection to their citizens than our Constitution does.

Remember, politics does not stop at the water’s edge.

If true this revelation would shatter the New World Order.

Q then asks:

  • What would happen to the FBI after failing in the most fundamental task they have – policing themselves first?
  • The same question applies to the DOJ.
  • What would happen to the special counsel?  Would the evidence be so extensive as to implicate Mueller in the plot, either directly or peripherally?  That would rock the foundations of any trust we have left in our government.  That is why Q ponders whether these messages can even be publicly disclosed.
  • What happens in general?  Would distrust of our government become so pervasive that anarchy ensues?

Q then goes where no one wants to believe is possible but that President Trump’s Executive Orderprior to Christmas addressed – the much more extensive network of:

  • Human trafficking
  • Pedophilia
  • Human sacrifices

No one wants to admit these practices are as widespread as they are and that our government has been hiding (using?) for a number of administrations.

It has long been rumored that control over Washington’s elected class is maintained by threats of exposing their predilection for these behaviors.  In fact, it is believed that candidates are chosen with that knowledge.

That’s why, as these revelations are made, Q moves to asking, “Who cannot sleep?”

“Those who know cannot find peace and will not rest until those responsible are held accountable.”  That is a direct reference to President Trump who, one month after he took office cemented, the establishment’s fear of him by announcing an initiative to end human trafficking

Q warns us that the level of pure evil and corruption perpetrated by the people we trust – Congressmen, mainstream media reporters, and business icons? – is unimaginable.

We have been programmed by our government with the help of the mainstream media to abandon our religion and accept government as our savior.  And now the social media giants are shutting down discussions on their platforms that doesn’t toe the “atheistic believe in government above all”dialogue.

Q tells us the evil is so pervasive that even if we expose less than half of the evil they are sitting on, humanity will be shaken to its core.

It’s a good thing that we dug in and resolved to “cling to your guns and religion.”


John Kerry Tells Palestinian Leaders to IGNORE President Trump – Says Trump Will Be FORCED from Office Next Year Jerusalem Post Reports

Elder Patriot – Just when you think the Dems can’t sink any lower they manage to surprise us again.

John Kerry, who once disgracefully and untruthfully besmirched American G.I.’s serving in Viet Nam during congressional testimony, has now done the unthinkable.

The Jerusalem Post has reported that Kerry has deliberately undermined President Trump’s strategy towards the Palestinian Authority: 

“Ma’ariv reported that former US Secretary of State John Kerry met in London with a close associate of Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas, Hussein Agha, for a long and open conversation about a variety of topics.”


“During the conversation, according to the report, Kerry asked Agha to convey a message to Abbas and ask him to “hold on and be strong.” Tell him, he told Agha, “that he should stay strong in his spirit and play for time, that he will not break and will not yield to President Trump’s demands. According to Kerry, Trump will not remain in office for a long time. It was reported that within a year there was a good chance that Trump would not be in the White House.”

Michael Oren, former Israeli Ambassador to the United State during the Obama administration and current Knesset member who has dealt extensively with Kerry said the former Secretary of State has an “acrid and obsessive” place in his heart for both Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Israel.  It appears Kerry feels the same way about president Trump.

In 2016 the Dems were certain that Hillary would win and complete Obama’s plan to end America as we know her.

To strident ideologues like Kerry the ends justify the mean.  Kerry’s suggestion to Agha was not a simple act of political defiance it was gross violation of the Logan Act that forbids federal employees, in this case an ex-federal employee, from engaging in foreign negotiations without authorization.


Nеw Jаw Drоpping Tеxt Mеsѕаge Frоm Muеllеr’ѕ Tеam Lеaks, Bаsicаlly Сlеars Тrump

The charade is over. The game is up and America wants answers and we want them now. Senator Ron Johnson just told a radio interview that he saw a jaw-dropping text from Peter Strzok 2 days after the Mueller investigation started in which he says ‘there’s nothing there’.

Wisconsin Sen. Ron Johnson, the chairman of the Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee, is deeply troubled by this new revelation.

With good reason because Strzok was one of the lead investigators and if he thought there was nothing there we officially have a political witch hunt.

Senator Johnson, appearing on WISN-Milwaukee with host Jay Weber, actually read the May 19, 2017 text that Strzok sent to Lisa Page, an FBI lawyer and his mistress, on air.

Strzok wrote: “You and I both know the odds are nothing. If I thought it was likely, I’d be there no question. I hesitate in part because of my gut sense and concern that there’s no big there there.”

This is huge.

“I think that’s kind of jaw-dropping,” Johnson said. “In other words, Peter Strzok, who was the FBI deputy assistant director of the counterintelligence division, the man who had a plan to do something because he just couldn’t abide Donald Trump being president, is saying that his gut sense is that there’s no big there there when it comes to the Mueller special counsel investigation.”

But it gets worse. Because this text came after Mueller started his investigation but remember Mueller took over for James Comey and Strzok was working for Comey, in fact, he was one of Comey’s lead investigators.

So, if after all the time Comey was digging around, this guy thought there was nothing there — that is about as damning evidence as you can get that this is a witch hunt.

Further, there are tons of missing emails that point to some serious nefarious activity on the part of those who would see Trump removed from his duly elected office.

Trump Lays Foundation To Seize Assets & Arrest George Soros & MANY MORE

President Trump signs Executive Order Blocking the Property of Persons Involved in Serious Human Rights Abuse or Corruption, otherwise known as the foundation to seize assets of corrupt politicians.

By the authority vested in me as President by the Constitution and the laws of the United States of America, including the International Emergency Economic Powers Act (50 U.S.C. 1701 et seq.) (IEEPA), the National Emergencies Act (50 U.S.C. 1601 et seq.) (NEA), the Global Magnitsky Human Rights Accountability Act (Public Law 114-328) (the “Act”), section 212(f) of the Immigration and Nationality Act of 1952 (8 U.S.C. 1182(f)) (INA), and section 301 of title 3, United States Code,

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. Human rights abuse and corruption undermine the values that form an essential foundation of stable, secure, and functioning societies; have devastating impacts on individuals; weaken democratic institutions; degrade the rule of law; perpetuate violent conflicts; facilitate the activities of dangerous persons; and undermine economic markets. The United States seeks to impose tangible and significant consequences on those who commit serious human rights abuse or engage in corruption, as well as to protect the financial system of the United States from abuse by these same persons.

I therefore determine that serious human rights abuse and corruption around the world constitute an unusual and extraordinary threat to the national security, foreign policy, and economy of the United States, and I hereby declare a national emergency to deal with that threat.

I hereby determine and order:

Section 1. (a) All property and interests in property that are in the United States, that hereafter come within the United States, or that are or hereafter come within the possession or control of any United States person of the following persons are blocked and may not be transferred, paid, exported, withdrawn, or otherwise dealt in:

(i) the persons listed in the Annex to this order;

(ii) any foreign person determined by the Secretary of the Treasury, in consultation with the Secretary of State and the Attorney General:

(A) to be responsible for or complicit in, or to have directly or indirectly engaged in, serious human rights abuse;

(B) to be a current or former government official, or a person acting for or on behalf of such an official, who is responsible for or complicit in, or has directly or indirectly engaged in:

(1) corruption, including the misappropriation of state assets, the expropriation of private assets for personal gain, corruption related to government contracts or the extraction of natural resources, or bribery; or

(2) the transfer or the facilitation of the transfer of the proceeds of corruption;

(C) to be or have been a leader or official of:

(1) an entity, including any government entity, that has engaged in, or whose members have engaged in, any of the activities described in subsections (ii)(A), (ii)(B)(1), or (ii)(B)(2) of this section relating to the leader’s or official’s tenure; or

(2) an entity whose property and interests in property are blocked pursuant to this order as a result of activities related to the leader’s or official’s tenure; or

(D) to have attempted to engage in any of the activities described in subsections (ii)(A), (ii)(B)(1), or (ii)(B)(2) of this section; and

(iii) any person determined by the Secretary of the Treasury, in consultation with the Secretary of State and the Attorney General:

(A) to have materially assisted, sponsored, or provided financial, material, or technological support for, or goods or services to or in support of:

(1) any activity described in subsections (ii)(A), (ii)(B)(1), or (ii)(B)(2) of this section that is conducted by a foreign person;

(2) any person whose property and interests in property are blocked pursuant to this order; or

(3) any entity, including any government entity, that has engaged in, or whose members have engaged in, any of the activities described in subsections (ii)(A), (ii)(B)(1), or (ii)(B)(2) of this section, where the activity is conducted by a foreign person;

(B) to be owned or controlled by, or to have acted or purported to act for or on behalf of, directly or indirectly, any person whose property and interests in property are blocked pursuant to this order; or

(C) to have attempted to engage in any of the activities described in subsections (iii)(A) or (B) of this section.

(b) The prohibitions in subsection (a) of this section apply except to the extent provided by statutes, or in regulations, orders, directives, or licenses that may be issued pursuant to this order, and notwithstanding any contract entered into or any license or permit granted before the effective date of this order.

Sec. 2. The unrestricted immigrant and nonimmigrant entry into the United States of aliens determined to meet one or more of the criteria in section 1 of this order would be detrimental to the interests of the United States, and the entry of such persons into the United States, as immigrants or nonimmigrants, is hereby suspended. Such persons shall be treated as persons covered by section 1 of Proclamation 8693 of July 24, 2011 (Suspension of Entry of Aliens Subject to United Nations Security Council Travel Bans and International Emergency Economic Powers Act Sanctions).

Sec. 3. I hereby determine that the making of donations of the types of articles specified in section 203(b)(2) of IEEPA (50 U.S.C. 1702(b)(2)) by, to, or for the benefit of any person whose property and interests in property are blocked pursuant to this order would seriously impair my ability to deal with the national emergency declared in this order, and I hereby prohibit such donations as provided by section 1 of this order.

Sec. 4. The prohibitions in section 1 include:

(a) the making of any contribution or provision of funds, goods, or services by, to, or for the benefit of any person whose property and interests in property are blocked pursuant to this order; and

(b) the receipt of any contribution or provision of funds, goods, or services from any such person.

Sec. 5. (a) Any transaction that evades or avoids, has the purpose of evading or avoiding, causes a violation of, or attempts to violate any of the prohibitions set forth in this order is prohibited.

(b) Any conspiracy formed to violate any of the prohibitions set forth in this order is prohibited.

Sec. 6. For the purposes of this order:

(a) the term “person” means an individual or entity;

(b) the term “entity” means a partnership, association, trust, joint venture, corporation, group, subgroup, or other organization; and

(c) the term “United States person” means any United States citizen, permanent resident alien, entity organized under the laws of the United States or any jurisdiction within the United States (including foreign branches), or any person in the United States.

Sec. 7. For those persons whose property and interests in property are blocked pursuant to this order who might have a constitutional presence in the United States, I find that because of the ability to transfer funds or other assets instantaneously, prior notice to such persons of measures to be taken pursuant to this order would render those measures ineffectual. I therefore determine that for these measures to be effective in addressing the national emergency declared in this order, there need be no prior notice of a listing or determination made pursuant to this order.

Sec. 8. The Secretary of the Treasury, in consultation with the Secretary of State, is hereby authorized to take such actions, including adopting rules and regulations, and to employ all powers granted to me by IEEPA and the Act as may be necessary to implement this order and section 1263(a) of the Act with respect to the determinations provided for therein. The Secretary of the Treasury may, consistent with applicable law, redelegate any of these functions to other officers and agencies of the United States. All agencies shall take all appropriate measures within their authority to implement this order.

Sec. 9. The Secretary of State is hereby authorized to take such actions, including adopting rules and regulations, and to employ all powers granted to me by IEEPA, the INA, and the Act as may be necessary to carry out section 2 of this order and, in consultation with the Secretary of the Treasury, the reporting requirement in section 1264(a) of the Act with respect to the reports provided for in section 1264(b)(2) of that Act. The Secretary of State may, consistent with applicable law, redelegate any of these functions to other officers and agencies of the United States consistent with applicable law.

Sec. 10. The Secretary of the Treasury, in consultation with the Secretary of State and the Attorney General, is hereby authorized to determine that circumstances no longer warrant the blocking of the property and interests in property of a person listed in the Annex to this order, and to take necessary action to give effect to that determination.

Sec. 11. The Secretary of the Treasury, in consultation with the Secretary of State, is hereby authorized to submit recurring and final reports to the Congress on the national emergency declared in this order, consistent with section 401(c) of the NEA (50 U.S.C. 1641(c)) and section 204(c) of IEEPA (50 U.S.C. 1703(c)).

Sec. 12. This order is effective at 12:01 a.m., Eastern Standard Time, December 21, 2017.

Sec. 13. This order is not intended to, and does not, create any right or benefit, substantive or procedural, enforceable at law or in equity by any party against the United States, its departments, agencies, or entities, its officers, employees, or agents, or any other person.
