Port Canaveral’s Gulftainer in joint venture with Russian Club-K missile exporter



Gulftainer, the UAE-based ports company operating Florida’s Port Canaveral cargo container terminal despite the company’s ties to Saddam Hussein’s nuclear WMD program, is in a joint venture with Russian Technologies (Rostec). Rostec exports Russia’s Trojan Horse Club-K container cruise missile weapons system.

The joint venture is called Gulftainer Russian Technologies.

Rostec exports the ‘doomsday box’ Club-K container cruise missile launcher through its Rosoboronexport arms export division.

Club-K is a modular advanced weapons system.

Club-K ‘universal launching modules’ are “housed in standard marine containers,” indistinguishable from standard shipping containers according to Rosoboronexport.

The Club-K gives “any merchant vessel the capability to wipe out an aircraft carrier” according to Reuters. “It’s a carrier-killer,” Robert Hewson of Jane‘s Defense Weekly told Reuters. “If you are hit by one or two of them, the kinetic impact is vast…it’s horrendous.”

The Club-K can be armed with four Kalibr anti-ship or land-attack cruise missiles that can be satellite-guided at supersonic speeds toward multiple targets.


Gulftainer co-owner Hamid Jafar is the brother and business partner of physicist Dr. Jafar Dhia Jafar, Saddam’s rogue nuclear WMD mastermind.

Hamid Jafar and Gulftainer’s affiliate Crescent Petroleum were under investigation by the U.S. Treasury Department and several congressional committees for operating a “front company” for Saddam in a scheme called ‘Oil-For-Superweapons.’  The proceeds were to fund Dr. Jafar’s massive secret nuclear weapons program.

Dr. Jafar served as Presidential Adviser to Saddam Hussein and Deputy Defense Minister while directing Saddam’s uranium enrichment and nuclear bomb programs. Dr. Jafar also oversaw technology transfer and procurement operations for Iraq’s chemical, biological, and nuclear WMD programs according to CIA documents.

Dr. Jafar’s name was on CENTCOM’s Operation Iraqi Freedom “BLACKLIST” of Saddam regime officials whom Coalition Forces were granted pre-approval to engage as legitimate military targets.

Dr. Jafar reportedly developed an Iraqi miniaturized nuclear weapon, the so-called ‘Beach Ball.’

An apparent miniaturized nuclear warhead pictured on North Korean TV with ‘Rocket Man’ Kim Jong-un appears strikingly similar in design to Dr. Jafar’s ‘Beach Ball.’


Gulftainer’s GT USA was awarded a 35-year cargo container terminal lease at Port Canaveral in 2014 under the Obama administration in a secretly-negotiated deal code-named ‘Project Pelican.’

Breitbart also reported on ties between Gulftainer and the Clinton Foundation, revealed by Wikileaks.

Treasury Secretary Jacob ‘Jack’ Lew declined to order a CFIUS National Security Threat Analysis of the transaction as mandated under the Foreign Investment National Security Act of 2007 (FINSA). FINSA was enacted after the 2006 Dubai Ports World debacle.

Aimen Mir was the Treasury Department’s CFIUS staff chairperson in 2014 when the Gulftainer Port Canaveral deal closed. Mir was two-time president of Muslim Youth of North America (MYNA), the youth wing of the Islamic Society of North America (ISNA), as Big League Politics reported.


In 2014 EMP expert Dr. Peter Vincent Pry “revealed that Iran recently purchased Russia’s Club-K missile launcher” according to a “Washington Examiner” report.

“Iran has demonstrated the capability to launch a missile off a freighter. Dr. Peter Vincent Pry said. Dr. Pry is the Executive Director of the EMP Task Force on National and Homeland Security. “The Club-K, if armed with a nuclear warhead, could be used to execute an EMP attack” he warned.


Rostec is the Russian state-owned weapons and technology firm established by Putin in 2007 states Reuters. Rostec’s CEO is a former Putin KGB colleague. Club-K exporter Rosoboronexport is controlled by a former KGB special forces operative.

Rostec’s CEO and Rostec’s bank Prominvest are under U.S. sanctions and identified as Specially Designated Nationals (SDNs). “U.S. persons are generally prohibited from dealing with” SDNs states the U.S. Treasury Department.

Rosoboronexport’s “activities are largely a state secret” claims the Wall Street Journal.

Gulftainer announced “a major joint venture agreement with Prominvest, the financial and investment arm of” Rostec in a 2010 press release.

Prominvest is Rosoboronexport’s arms export bank states Rostec.

Putin and Dr. Jafar’s nephew Gulftainer Vice Chairman Badr Jafar were photographed at the joint venture signing.

Badr Jafar visited the White House in 2014, weeks before the signing of the secret ‘Project Pelican’ deal.

Gulftainer, under its Rostec joint-venture, operates Russia’s Ust Luga Baltic Sea Port, one of twelve Russian ports designated for shipment of nuclear materials.  Gulftainer invested $275 million in the half billion dollar joint venture with Prominvest.

President Obama lifted sanctions on Rosoboronexport in 2010 during his ‘Russia reset’ according to the Washington Times.

$1.9 Trillion Stimulus Package Passes the House With $15 Minimum Wage

The bill includes $1,400 stimulus checks.



The House of Representatives passed President Joe Biden’s $1.9 trillion dollar stimulus package in a near party-line vote on Friday night. Two Democrats deflected, declining to vote for the bill.

The bill includes a provision to raise the federal minimum wage to $15 an hour. This provision is likely to be removed in the Senate, with the Senate parliamentarian ruling that a spending and appropriations package can’t include a minimum wage increase.

Republican critics of the bill have alleged that the legislation is weighted towards ‘pork’ spending, with hundreds of billions delegated in the spending package that have little to do with the coronavirus. Senators such as Mitt Romney have pointed out that the bill provides billions in funding to state governments such as California, which incurred a budgetary surplus in 2020. Critics have alleged that a third stimulus package should be more directly targeted, with the federal government incurring the largest budget deficit in the history of the United States in 2020.

The package’s main provision is a round of $1,400 stimulus checks for all taxpayers who filed less than $75,000 in their 2019 tax return.

Senate Democrats are determined to pass the large stimulus package using budget reconciliation, a process that would only require 50 votes to pass. Biden’s voter base have become increasingly impatient, with the Democrat having previously promised that stimulus checks would be issued immediately after his ascension to the presidential throne.

If left-wing pork projects prevent Biden from delivering on his game-changing campaign promise of stimulus checks, his presidency will be exposed as little more than a false bill of goods sold by the feckless establishment since the beginning.
