Who is Hamas: Why do they hate Trump? Go back to Obama, Holder, and Holy Land Foundation v. Ashcroft

Back when the Department of Justice (D.O.J.) respected our Republic and worked for the American people, and before George Bush was trying to assist leftists like Barack Obama in invading the United States of America with their Arab Spring to implant a Democracy and give our country away, the U.S. government had a focus on preventing terrorism and Communist infiltration to protect the American people.

Before the D.O.J. was out in the streets protecting the civil rights of illegal invaders:

Back in 2009, there was a massive case where “the Holy Land 5” faced charges on which the jury found the defendants guilty of: conspiracy to provide material support to a foreign terrorist organization, providing material support to a foreign terrorist organization, and conspiracy to commit money laundering.

But there were no prosecutions, and suddenly, D.C. got very rich for looking the other way.

Currently, it is accepted that Washington DC, belongs to the world’s richest foreign powers and has little to nothing to do with serving the American people.

But how did we get here?

So in the early 2000s- there was a lot of money to be made selling access to the United States to foreign powers- and the money and the political power were just too delicious for the Civil Servant Class, AKA administrative state class, to bypass. So they grew the government, hired their friends, received the foreign massive cash flow to look the other way when terrorism happened- while all enjoyed the cocktail parties and learned to hate the American people… that is until President Donald J. Trump showed up with a massive mandate to redirect resources and service back to the Amerian people.

And things have been theatrical ever since.

This brings us to a KEY POINT ABOUT WHY DC HATES PRESIDENT TRUMP SO MUCH: (he was trying to stop all of their fun).

So Trump, on the other hand, wanted to elevate the American people, put us first, and go after terrorists, as evidenced by his 2017 Executive Order to Fight Hamas.

It’s pretty clear that when people say that Hamas would have been addressed under President Trump, that is based on reality. As is the mockery of people who were more afraid of his salty tweets aimed at his opposition than of having their children brutally murdered by foreign terrorists in our open soceity.

Now, the American people must plan for a terrorist attack on American soil since Trump’s opposition has allowed the usurpation of our nation on many levels, and they aren’t even trying to hide it anymore- as seen on the open borders of the U.S.A.

But America was not always such a joke as it is now after so much crazy leftist national suicidal ideation and after Communist propaganda has brainwashed the men and women of America.

Recall there was a massive case against Hamas, and it was none other than Obama’s self-described wingman, Eric Holder, who laid down and refused to prosecute Hamas after they were found guilty, preferring instead to harass and persecute American citizens, all to the joy and thrill of the American Democrat voter.

But recall- George Bush was also in on it, which is why Conservatives were highly annoyed at Bush and his sidekick Karl Rove at the time.

Back to Holder:

Links to numerous Politico articles about Holder and his allowance of Hamas. Officials in the George Bush administration also allowed America to be attacked and provided no consequences at all for other terrorist groups, according to media reports:

“Attorney General Eric Holder confirmed Tuesday that on his watch, the Justice Department decided not to prosecute a vital leader of the Council on American-Islamic Relations. However, establishing a report last week on this blog, Holder noted that Bush-era officials also decided not to proceed with the case earlier.

“The decision reached in this administration was the same that was reached in the Bush administration — a determination made that for various reasons, looking at the facts and the law, a prosecution would not be appropriate. A review was done of that decision in this administration, and the conclusion was reached that earlier decision was appropriate,” Holder said in response to a question at a wide-ranging briefing for reporters,” Politico reported in April of 2011.

So, the U.S. government has been allowing the United States of America to be dominated by Islamic extremism for a very long time, and they have a long-time pattern of persecuting Americans instead of fighting terrorism.

This is why many Conservatives were leery of the Patriot Act, projecting that someday it would all be used against the American people by a highly debased and corrupt class of government workers.

And that is what happened. The civil rights of terrorists were elevated while the civil rights of Americans were erased- and here is where it really started:

Check out this press statement from the D.O.J. in 2009:

“Holy Land Foundation and Leaders Convicted on Providing Material Support
to Hamas Terrorist Organization

Today, in federal court in Dallas, U.S. District Judge Jorge A. Solis sentenced the Holy Land Foundation for Relief and Development (H.L.F.) and five of its leaders following their convictions by a federal jury in November 2008 on charges of providing material support to Hamas, a designated foreign terrorist organization.

“Today’s sentences mark the culmination of many years of painstaking investigative and prosecutorial work at the federal, state and local levels. All those involved in this landmark case deserve our thanks,” said David Kris, Assistant Attorney General for National Security. “These sentences should serve as a strong warning to anyone who knowingly provides financial support to terrorists under the guise of humanitarian relief.”

Shukri Abu Baker, Mohammad El-Mezain, and Ghassan Elashi incorporated H.L.F. Mufid Abdulqader and Abdulrahman Odeh worked as fundraisers. Together, with others, they provided material support to the Hamas movement.”

Those convictions came from a Landmark Case: Holy Land V. Ashcroft- Ashcroft was unlike the others.

From the Case Text:

In December 2001, the Office of Foreign Asset Control (“OFAC”) designated the Holy Land Foundation (“H.L.F.”) as a “Specially Designated Global Terrorist” (“SDGT”) under an Executive Order issued under the International Emergency Economic Powers Act, 50 U.S.C. § 1701 et seq. (“IEEPA”). This designation was accompanied by an order blocking the organization’s assets. H.L.F. brought an action in the district court challenging this designation, and before us now appeals the lower court’s decision, which affirmed OFAC’s motions and dismissed the complaint in substantial part. For the reasons explained below, we affirm the district court’s dismissal in detail and order summary judgment for the government.

I. Background

The IEEPA, 50 U.S.C. § 1701 et seq., authorizes the President to declare a national emergency when an extraordinary threat to the United States arises that originates in substantial part in a foreign state. Such a declaration clothes the President with extensive authority set out in 50 U.S.C. § 1702. Under that section, he may investigate, regulate, or prohibit transactions in foreign exchange, banking transfers, and importation or exportation of currency or securities by persons or concerning property subject to the jurisdiction of the United States. § 1702(a)(1)(A). Of further special concern to the Holy Land Foundation, he may

investigate, block during the pendency of an investigation, regulate, direct and compel, nullify, void, prevent or prohibit, any acquisition, holding, withholding, use, transfer, withdrawal, transportation, importation or exportation of, or dealing in, or exercising any right, power, or privilege with respect to, or transactions involving, any property in which any foreign country or a national thereof has any interest by any person, or with respect to any property, subject to the jurisdiction of the United States. . . .

§ 1702(a)(1)(B).

In 1995, the President issued Executive Order 12,947 under the IEEPA. Exec. Order No. 12,947 ( 60 Fed. Reg. 5079 (Jan. 23, 1995)). That order designated specific terrorist organizations, including the Palestinian organization Hamas, as “Specially Designated Terrorists,” or S.D.T.s, and blocked all of their property and interests in property. The order also allowed for additional designations if an organization or person is found to be “owned or controlled by or to act for or on behalf of” an S.D.T. Id.

In 2001, as part of his response to the attacks of September 11, the President issued Executive Order 13,224, similar to Order 12,947, under the IEEPA. Exec. Order No. 13,224 ( 66 Fed. Reg. 49,079 (Sept. 23, 2001)). Order 13,224 designated specified terrorist organizations, again including Hamas, as “Specially Designated Global Terrorists,” or SDGTs, and blocked all of their property and interests in property subject to the jurisdiction of the United States. That order also allowed for additional SDGTs to be designated if organizations or persons are found to “act for or on behalf of” or are “owned or controlled by” designated terrorists, or they “assist in, sponsor, or provide . . . support for,” or are “otherwise associated” with them. Id.


Because ‘of the law’ and the ‘rights of the terrorists’ according to this report:

On April 29, 2011, the lead prosecutor from the Holy Land Foundation (H.L.F.) trial said that politics played no role in Attorney General Eric Holder’s decision not to prosecute any of the un-indicted co-conspirators. Contradicting the unnamed source from Rep. Peter King’s (R-NY) April 15 letter to Holder, Jim Jacks told the Dallas Morning News that “If someone is telling [King] that the attorney general or the White House intervened to decline a prosecution in this matter, he is being misinformed. That did not happen.” Jack’s statement is bolstered by court documents showing that the list’s creation was a legal maneuver and not to pursue charges against those entities listed.

“The decision to indict or not indict a case is based upon an analysis of the evidence and the law,” said Jacks, a U.S. Attorney who has served as a federal prosecutor for almost 30 years. “That’s what happened in this case,” he added.

spokesman for King said that the congressman stood by his letter’s claims and was “reliably informed” that the decision not to seek indictments was politically motivated.  As previously reported, this claim is contradicted by statements made by government attorneys from the H.L.F. trials at both the Federal District Court for the Northern Division of Texas, which tried the case, and the Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals.  The opinions in both cases make it clear that creating the co-conspirator list was a legal maneuver. By naming co-conspirators, the government could use out-of-court statements as evidence that would usually be inadmissible as hearsay. For additional background about the un-indicted co-conspirator list and how its release violated the listed parties’ due process rights under the Fifth Amendment, click here.

Nathan Garret, another prosecutor from the H.L.F. trial and a former F.B.I. agent, said, “Decisions were hashed out in often tough and pressure-filled situations and conditions, but always — in my experience — grounded in evidence and law.” On April 18, Politico and the Washington Post reported that the Bush administration had declined prosecuting.

The first trial of H.L.F. and its leaders ended in a hung jury on Oct. 22, 2007. The case was re-tried, and the defendants were convicted on Nov. 24, 2008. The appeal is now pending before the Fifth Circuit.

Consider our past reporting on the Civil rights of illegal aliens:

We know it is not MAGA or supporters of President Donald J. Trump, as the D.O.J. has declared us to be the greatest threat to world democracy- (which means ‘rule by mob’) for standing up for our Republic.

Consider this report:

So, understanding Hamas and the history of the sellouts in the U.S. Government, as well as their opinion, is essential when we vote. Here are some things to consider: are we a Democracy or a Republic?


“Mob rule is sometimes called ochlocracy or mobocracy. There is sometimes no legal government, and mobs of people decide whatever they want. It is government by a mob (crowd of people). In this system, the mob becomes the ruler or dominant force in society.”


The form of government known as a “republic” had existed for thousands of years. Of course, it has experienced quite a few changes over time and has seen periods of power and obscurity worldwide. The concept of a republic is best described as an idea of government where citizens vote to elect representative leaders of their personal interests and political beliefs.

The concept of a republic was developed in the days of Ancient Greece and Ancient Rome. For example, the city-states of Athens and Sparta were considered republics, as was the Roman Republic of 509 BC to 27 B.C. (this was established with the end of the Roman Kingdom and lasted until the Roman Empire formed). However, the rights of the individuals living in these times and places were not nearly as extensive as their modern-day counterparts.

We are a Republic, which is notable only if we can keep it. And right now- we have lost it, and the mob wants our beautiful country for their own and to sell to the highest bidder.
