in light of the actions of the Government of Iran and Iranian-backed proxies, particularly those taken to destabilize the Middle East, promote international terrorism, and advance Iran’s ballistic missile program, and Iran’s irresponsible and provocative actions in and over international waters, including the targeting of United States military assets and civilian vessels, hereby order:
Section 1.

(b) With respect to any foreign financial institution determined by the Secretary of the Treasury in accordance with this section to meet the criteria set forth in subsection (a) of this section, the Secretary of the Treasury may prohibit the opening, and prohibit or impose strict conditions on the maintaining, in the United States of a correspondent account or a payable-through account by such foreign financial institution.
(c) The prohibitions in subsection (b) 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 date of this order.
to, or for the benefit of any person whose property and interests in property are blocked pursuant to section 1 of this order would seriously impair the President’s ability to deal with the national emergency declared in Executive Order 12957, and I hereby prohibit such donations as provided by section 1 of this order.
Sec. 4. The prohibitions in section 1 of this order 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.
1(a) 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 non-immigrants, 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. 6. The Secretary of the Treasury, in consultation with the Secretary of State, is hereby authorized to take such actions, including adopting rules and regulations, to employ all powers granted to the President by IEEPA as may be necessary to carry out the purposes of this order, other than the purposes described in section 5 of this order. The Secretary of the Treasury may, consistent with applicable law, redelegate any of these functions within the Department of the Treasury. All departments and agencies of the United States shall take all appropriate measures within their authority to implement this order.
Sec. 7. (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. 8. 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;
(c) the term “foreign financial institution” means any foreign entity that is engaged in the business of accepting deposits, making, granting, transferring, holding, or brokering loans or credits, or purchasing or selling foreign exchange, securities, commodity futures or options, or procuring purchasers and sellers thereof, as principal or agent.
forward contract and foreign exchange merchants, securities and commodities exchanges, clearing corporations, investment companies, employee benefit plans, dealers in precious metals, stones, or jewels, and holding companies, affiliates, or subsidiaries of any of the foregoing. The term does not include the international financial institutions identified in 22 U.S.C. 262r(c)(2), the International Fund for Agricultural Development, the North American Development Bank, or any other international financial institution so notified by the Secretary of the Treasury;
(d) the term “knowingly,” with respect to conduct, a circumstance, or a result, means that a person has actual knowledge, or should have known, of the conduct, the circumstance, or the result; and
(e) 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. 9. 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 Executive Order 12957, there need be no prior notice of a listing or determination made pursuant to section 1 of this order.
Sec. 10. (a) Nothing in this order shall be construed to impair or otherwise affect:
(i) the authority granted by law to an executive department or agency, or the head thereof; or
(ii) the functions of the Director of the Office of Management and Budget relating to budgetary, administrative, or legislative proposals.
(b) This order shall be implemented consistent with applicable law and subject to the availability of appropriations.
(c) 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.
Sec. 11. The measures taken pursuant to this order are in response to actions of the Government of Iran occurring after the conclusion of the 1981 Algiers Accords, and are intended solely as a response to those later actions.

Liberals are so obsessed with Donald Trump. But maybe they should start looking in the mirror. The problem is they won’t like what they see.
Donald Trump isn’t hurting you. You’re hurting and killing yourselves. You are your own worst enemies. You can never admit that, so you focus all your anger, bitterness, frustration and humiliation on Trump.
Take the economy. Liberals refuse to admit the economy was horrible under Obama. They refuse to face facts. Obama spent the most taxpayer money in history. He created the most debt in history. He presided over the most people on welfare, food stamps and disability in history. And he produced the worst economic growth in history. Obama is the only president in America’s history to never produce a single year of 3% economic growth. Even Herbert Hoover and FDR in the depths of the Great Depression managed one good year. Not Obama.
Obama’s economy was exactly like Jimmy Carter’s economy. You cannot get more proof positive than those 12 combined years of misery and malaise.
Not only have we proved liberal ideas don’t work, but now we have proof positive that conservative ideas do. Trump combined with Reagan is proof positive that conservative ideas work like a charm. Both Republican-conservative presidents took miserable Carter and Obama economies and almost instantly turned them into booming, thriving, super-charged economies.
Trump has just produced an economic growth of 4.1%. And the Fed is predicting in the neighborhood of 5% growth in the next quarter. Amazing. But that’s just the start. Days ago, we found out inflation is low and jobless claims are the lowest in 48 years! Trump’s economy has produced unemployment figures not seen since the 1970’s when America had a much smaller population.
Keep in mind, all of these remarkable economic and job growth figures have happened while the Fed is raising interest rates and Trump conducts a massive trade war.
Yet liberals still can’t admit they’re wrong and their policies are a total unmitigated disaster.
Then there’s life and death. Seventy-two people were shot in Chicago last weekend, 13 killed. This is a black-on-black genocide on the streets of a 100% Democrat-controlled city. A city with the strictest gun control laws in the country. This is what happens with liberals in control of inner cities like Chicago, Detroit and Baltimore. These cities have been ruined. Life is a tragedy for the millions of poor people (almost 100% minorities) trapped in these cities. Things are so bad in Democrat-controlled Chicago, black leaders are begging the U.N. to send a foreign peacekeeping force to police the streets.
Yet liberals still can’t admit they’re wrong and their policies are a total unmitigated disaster.
Take the fires in California. Once again, liberal policies are killing people and destroying the quality of life. They foolishly blame “climate change” for massive fires. That’s because they can’t take the truth- they’ve caused this disaster with insane, extreme, radical environmental policies. Firemen are dying, citizens are dying, millions forced to evacuate, thousands of homes destroyed- all because liberals in California spent ten times more last year on subsidies for electric cars than on than on dead tree clearing, then there’s timing. California liberals claim the fires have grown more intense since 2012. Well, of course, they have, sweet snowflakes! That was the exact year Obama passed strict new environmental rules governing 193 million acres of national forests and grasslands.
Conservative activist Megan Barth recently said about those regulations, “Obama-era regulations produced excessive layers of bureaucracy that blocked proper forest management and increased environmentalist litigation…Leftist politicians and judicial activists would rather let forests burn than let anyone thin out overgrown trees, or let professional loggers harvest usable timber left from beetle infestation or selectively cut timber.”
In other words, once again liberals have failed miserably. It’s called “eco-terrorism.” They’ve brought this nightmare upon themselves.
Why do liberals keep hurting themselves? The answer is simple. They can’t look in the mirror. They will never learn from failure because they refuse to accept blame.
As Saul Alinsky taught them- never admit failure, always blame someone else.
American Pastor Andrew Brunson has been released and allowed to return to his homeLet it be clear, I am in prison, not for anything that I have done wrong, but because of who I am – a Christian pastor,” said Brunson while in confinement. “I desperately miss my wife and children. Yet, I believe this to be true – it is an honor to suffer for Jesus Christ as many have before me. My deepest thanks to all those around the world who are standing with me and praying for me”

UCLA basketball players LiAngelo Ball, Cody Riley and Jalen Hill, were arrested and detained for shoplifting at a local Louis Vuitton department store, stealing sunglasses. For their alleged crimes, the players were reportedly facing up to 10 years in a Chinese prison, but Trump intervened.

Mr. Joshua Holt and his wife Thamy Holt had been imprisoned in Venezuela for two years “I’m just so grateful for what you guys have done, and for thinking about me, and caring about me, just a normal person,” he added. “It really touches me.”
Portuguese-American Sabrina De Sousa, a former CIA agent, was arrested and detained in Portugal in 2015 after being convicted in absentia in 2009 of kidnapping. De Sousa was sentenced to four years in prison for her alleged involvement in the kidnapping of radical Muslim cleric Osama Mustafa Hassan Nasr, also known as Abu Omar, in Milan, Italy, in 2003. Although De Sousa argued she played no part in the abduction, failed appeals had her on the fast track to becoming the first American intelligence official to serve jail time for a role in former President George W. Bush’s administration’s “War on Terror.”
