The Tale Of Qatar Investment Authority, Detroit Land Bank Authority & Ice Cube

Gather round my dears, for the Celestial Goddess of the Woodshed shall tell the tale of the Qatar Investment Authority, Detroit Land Bank Authority, Amrock & Ice Cube.

Upon the reading of the Ice Cube complaint, below, it was found that one of the defendants was the Qatar Investment Authority which is set up where only one person has absolute control over real estate transactions, bonds, gold and anything to do with financial instruments.

But, then, the heavens opened and heralded, "Hey, that sounds like the Detroit Land Bank Authority...and the Arkansas Development Finance Authority!".

So, what had happened was....

Ambassador To U.S. Links Qatari Real Estate Investment To Terrorism, Country's Spending Likely To Pause

Qatari Investor Accused in Bribery Plot Appears With Michael Cohen in Picture Posted by Stormy Daniels’ Lawyer

He’s shown meeting with Cohen at Trump Tower shortly after the election.

Ice Cube, the rapper and actor, and his business partner, Jeff Kwatinetz, recently filed a $1.2 billion lawsuit that includes an allegation that Al-Rumaihi and other Qatari officials who invested in the men’s BIG3 basketball league indicated interest in gaining access to people connected to Trump.

“Mr Al-Rumaihi requested I set up a meeting between him, the Qatari government, and Stephen Bannon, and to tell Steve Bannon that Qatar would underwrite all of his political efforts in return for his support,” Kwatinetz said in the court filing. Kwatinetz says he rejected the offer, which he viewed as a bribe.

In response, Kwatinetz claims, “Al-Rumaihi laughed and then stated to me that I shouldn’t be naive, that so many Washington politicians take our money, and stated ‘do you think Flynn turned down our money?’” That’s a reference to Michael Flynn, who was fired as Trump’s national security adviser after lying about his contacts with then Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak.

Sports Trinity, a group that included the Qatari investors in BIG3, claims that Kwantinetz is lying. “The statements in Mr. Kwatinetz’s declaration are pure Hollywood fiction,” a spokesperson for the group said in a statement. “Mr. Kwatinetz is engaging in a xenophobic PR smear campaign against Sport Trinity, the largest investor in BIG3 basketball, to cover up his own mismanagement and erratic behavior with respect to the league.”

Last week Avenatti released a report, later largely confirmed, that detailed secret payments by several corporations to a limited liability company set up by Cohen. In another picture Avenatti posted along with the photos of Al-Rumaihi, Cohen speaks with Flynn. Avenatti’s photo of Flynn appears to be a screenshot of a YouTube videothat does not feature the footage of Al-Rumaihi. Flynn has pleaded guilty to lying to FBI agents and is cooperating with Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation into Trump campaign ties to Russia.

The Qatari Embassy and Qatari Investment Authority did not respond Sunday to requests for comment on Al-Rumaihi’s presence at Trump Tower and purpose of the meeting.

Qatar Investment Authority?

Qatar Investment Authority Eyes Carolina Investments

Posted by Amrock A delegation of business and government leaders representing the Qatar Investment Authority (QIA) is touring the Southeastern U.S. to scout investment opportunities, reports The Post and Courier of Charleston, S.C.

QIA eyes Southeast after London, New York real estate buys
After a round of high-end real estate investments in London and New York in recent years, the QIA is visiting Miami, Charleston and Hilton Head Island, S.C., Charlotte and Raleigh, N.C., and Washington, D.C., with the prospect of new investments in one or more of these areas. This is reportedly the QIA’s second visit to the Southeast this year, after an earlier visit in February.
“Over the past decade, Qatar has cemented its partnership with the U.S. in the form of direct investments, joint ventures and trade deals,” Ahmed bin Jassim bin Mohamed al-Thani, Minister of Economy and Commerce for Qatar, said in a statement. “These investments have contributed to the creation of countless new opportunities for investors and businessmen from both countries,” he added.

Qatar to invest a further $45 billion in the U.S.
The article notes the QIA has pledged a further $45 billion in U.S. investments of Qatar’s oil-generated wealth, with about one-fourth of those future investments to focus on infrastructure projects.

The exact itinerary for the current tour has not been released. However, the February visit included a visit to Boeing’s Dreamliner airliner campus in North Charleston, where officials reportedly met with Kevin McAllister, head of the commercial airplanes division of Boeing. The report notes Qatar already owns 94 Boeing planes and has ordered a further 60.
