Trump: Owned By The Russian Mafia

Image result for Goodfellas, the movie

From Twitter poster and investigator, Adam Khan: http://www.gofundme.com/adamkhan

1. Felix Sater started funneling Russian money to Trump in 2000-when US banks stopped loaning to Trump

 

 

 

 

 

2. While funneling in Russian money via Bayrock office in Trump Tower, Sater also billed himself as Trump’s “Senior Advisor”

 

3. In a scene straight out of Goodfellas, Sater cut someone with a margarita glass during a bar fight–so Trump denied ties-even under oath

 

 

4. Here is Trump with Felix Sater at opening of Trump SoHo which was built with Russian money, brought to Trump by none other than Sater

 

 

5. Trump’s other partners on SoHo deal? Putin pals Tevfik Arif, ex Deputy Head Soviet Ministry of Commerce and a Soviet emigre, Tamir Sapir

 

 

6. Now Sapir sold electronics to KGB agents from his Manhattan storefront and his business partner also happens to be tight with Putin

 

7. Meanwhile Tevfik Arik–Putin’s pal who brought Trump millions of dollars–was busted in Turkey for running an underage prostitution ring

8. Kazakh-born Soviet official turned real estate tycoon (), Tevfik Arif ran Bayrock/Sapir out of Trump Tower. Sater worked for him.

 

 

9. Bayrock-Sapir’s signature deal-Trump SoHo-was financed with dirty Kazakh money (more: https://twitter.com/khanoisseur/status/806710053902262274 )

 

 

10. Despite glitzy Trump SoHo promos, heavily featuring Ivanka, the deal soured. Trump was sued for fraud. 90% of deposits were returned.

 

 

 

11. Trump SoHo slipped into foreclosure (Trump still got tens of millions in dirty money), another Russian oligarch poured $95M into him

 

 

12. While the Russians were nursing Trump back into financial health, they were also grooming man who would become his campaign CEO-Manafort

 

 

 

 

13. If you’re joining late I’m connecting the dots re Trump’s Russia links, $ trail, advisers. To skip ahead read:

Adam Khan added,

15. While Richard Burt was helping Putin undermine Obama he was also shaping Trump’s Russia alignment
Both Burt and Page (also advising Trump) worked for Russian oil giant Gazprom, maneuvering to increase European energy dependence on Russia
16. On April 27, with media distracted by HRC emails, Trump delivered Richard Burt-crafted Russia alignment speech
17. After media, FBI started poking into Manafort, Page, both “left the campaign”…to advise Trump behind the scenes
18. Page huddled with Sechin, Putin pal + head of Russian oil giant Rosneft, which inked a $300B deal with Tillerson
19. Obama sanctioned Putin’s $300B dollar deal with Exxon-led by Trump’s SoS Tillerson-Hillary backed RU sanctions
20. Manafort-he helped Putin puppet Yanukovych win Ukraine Presidency before advising Trump-was sued for funneling dirty Russian $$ into US
21. Manafort, claimed the lawsuit, was bankrolled by a Russian mobster (and Putin pal) on FBI’s Ten Most Wanted List, Semion Mogilevich
22. Mogilevich is dubbed as “the most dangerous mobster in the world” by the FBI, but wait, there’s something bigger…

23. Remember Sater? I started this thread with him Turns out, Sater worked for Mogilevich and…this next is dizzying

RELATES BACK TO FIRST TWEET:

1. Felix Sater started funneling Russian money to Trump in 2000-when US banks stopped loaning to Trump

24. Plot involves Trump Tower FL, Sater, stock fraud, a deal with the CIA, stinger missiles, Loretta Lynch, Al-Qaeda…

25. Here’s one version of the story-mind you-Sater turned into a govt informant so his background is sealed on “national security” grounds

26. People in US Intel will tell you Sater was able to secure the Stingers bc of his Russian intel connections

REFERENCE TWEET 25.

27. Sater visited Trump for “undisclosed business” in July, just days before Page met with Russian intel. DNC leaks occurred shortly after.

28. Time to bring all the Trump-Russia-advisors-links-money trail I’ve presented in tweets 1-27 together

Everything I pieced together is in public arena–google it-astonishingly underreported stuff

Vindicated… Really???

Image result for I was vindicated

“Despite so many false statements and lies, total and complete vindication…and WOW, Comey is a leaker!” the president tweeted early Friday.

Yet the president hasn’t been as completely vindicated as he says. During his testimony former FBI Director James Comey said he is “sure” Trump is being investigated for obstruction of justice by special counsel Robert Mueller. Mueller, also a former FBI chief, was one of Comey’s mentors at the bureau.

Let’s begin small.

 

3 Big Takeaways From Comey Day in Washington

Yesterday’s much-anticipated testimony from the former FBI director included genuine bombshells—which some may have missed

*SOURCE*

[EXCERPTS.]

…Predictably, the president’s supporters are trumpeting things they heard Comey say—or at least what they think they heard him say. Already the White House is running with Comey’s words which, they claim, vindicate the president and his version of how things went very wrong between Trump and his FBI director over the Bureau’s counterintelligence investigation of Russian interference in our 2016 election.

On the positive side, Trump’s supporters are taking comfort from Comey’s admission that he had, in fact, informed the president that he was not personally under FBI counterintelligence investigation last winter. This, while true, is something of a technicality, since Comey admitted that Russian interference in our 2016 election was very real—“with purpose and sophistication”—no matter what the president tweets.

When asked about this critical issue by Republican Senator Richard Burr, the SSCI chair, Comey’s responses were clear-cut:

Burr: Do you have any doubt that Russia attempted to interfere in the 2016 elections?

Comey: None.

Burr: Do you have any doubt that the Russian government was behind the intrusions in the D triple C systems and the subsequent leaks of that information?

Comey: No, no doubt.

Burr: Do you have any doubt the Russian government was behind the cyber intrusion in the state voter files?

Comey: No.

Overall, the bad news for the president in Comey’s testimony today far outweighed the good. Team Trump’s present gloating about their alleged vindication will prove to be short-lived. Above all, Comey left no doubt that he is confident that Trump cashiered him as FBI director over the Russia issue. Regardless of whether the president explicitly asked Comey to “let go” of the Bureau’s investigation of Flynn, whom the former director admitted was under risk of being charged with criminal offenses, Comey understood that Trump was asking him to back off an active investigation of the highest national significance—a request which “stunned” him, he stated…

…The former director made clear today that he believes the president maligned him and the FBI with his public comments and his reported ugly statements to Russian diplomats about Comey’s firing. This was obviously a deeply personal affront to Comey, and his statement today exuded his anger:

The administration then chose to defame me, and—more importantly—the FBI, by saying that the organization was in disarray, that it was poorly led, that the workforce had lost confidence in its leader. Those were lies, plain and simple. And I am so sorry that the FBI workforce had to hear them, and I’m so sorry that the American people were told them.

It’s unprecedented for a top American intelligence or law enforcement official—until recently, Comey was both—to publicly call out the president as a bald-faced liar, but that’s what happened. Comey is a tenacious fighter, and the White House is naïve if it thinks this matter is resolved.

To Comey, Trump is simply a liar.

From there, things got even worse for the president. Comey admitted that he had kept notes of his meetings with Trump—something he had never done in his interactions with Presidents Bush and Obama. The FBI director did not trust the new commander-in-chief to render their conversations accurately or truthfully, therefore Comey did so meticulously.

“I was honestly concerned he might lie about the nature of our meeting so I thought it important to document,” he informed senators. It’s a rare event when the country’s former secret police chief admits that he has no faith in the president’s fundamental honesty.

Comey made a memorable statement: “I want the American people to know this truth. The FBI is honest. The FBI is strong. And the FBI is and always will be independent.” Omitted, yet easily inferred, was the follow-up line: “Unlike President Trump.”

The Big Reveals are yet to come.

However irritated Trump and his retinue may have been by Comey’s negative comments about the president’s honesty and personality, none of that matters much to the larger issues of the KremlinGate investigation. Yet it was here that Comey’s statements were most alarming—but they were easy to miss if you weren’t listening carefully.

First, Comey dodged questions about the infamous Steele dossier, the raw intelligence report compiled by a former senior British intelligence operative which alleged direct Kremlin ties to the president and his inner circle. When Senator Burr brought up the dossier, Comey swatted his query away: “I don’t think that’s a question I can answer in an open setting because it goes into the details of the investigation.” Which is the unclassified way of stating that parts of the Steele dossier are true, but they must only be discussed in a closed session (which was scheduled for yesterday afternoon).

Further hints of damaging classified information about Team Trump came up in a discussion of Attorney General Jeff Sessions, whose contacts with top Russians in 2016 have been a source of controversy. Comey indicated that there is something worth investigating there. When asked about the attorney general’s recusal from the Russia inquiry, Comey stated: “We also were aware of facts that I can’t discuss in an open setting that would make his continued engagement in a Russia-related investigation problematic.” That’s the unclassified way of explaining that there’s classified evidence that Sessions’ ties to Russians are worrisome from a counterintelligence perspective—and perhaps even illegal.

Last, Comey dropped an easy-to-miss bombshell when he was asked by Republican Senator Tom Cotton if he believed that President Trump has colluded with Russia. The former FBI director’s reply was terse: “That’s a question I don’t think I should answer in an open setting.”

To anybody versed in how classified information is handled in Washington, that’s a jaw-dropping response, since Comey de facto admitted that there is evidence that the president colluded with the Kremlin in 2016—but that information, being classified, cannot be discussed in an open session.

The Russian government was in touch with members of President-elect Donald Trump’s political team during the U.S. election campaign and knows most of his entourage, one of Russia’s most senior diplomats told the Interfax news agency on Thursday…

…Trump has dismissed suggestions he had anything to do with the Russian government during the campaign.

But in comments that could prove politically awkward for the president-elect, Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Sergei Ryabkov said there had indeed been some communications.

“There were contacts,” Interfax cited Ryabkov as saying. “We are doing this and have been doing this during the election campaign.”

Such contacts would continue, he added, saying the Russian government knew and had been in touch with many of Trump’s closest allies. He did not name names.

“Obviously, we know most of the people from his (Trump’s)entourage. Those people have always been in the limelight in the United States and have occupied high-ranking positions,” he said.

“I cannot say that all of them, but quite a few have been staying in touch with Russian representatives.”

The 9 Most Damning Comey Quotes of the Day, If You Are Donald Trump

*SOURCE*

[EXCERPT.]

“I took it as direction.”
Probably the biggest bombshell from today’s hearing was when Comey was questioned by Sen. James Risch (R-ID) regarding the statements made to him by Trump pertaining to Michael Flynn. Comey said that Trump had stated the following to him during one of the three meetings: “I hope you can see your way clear to letting this go, to letting Flynn go. He is a good guy. I hope you can let this go.”  Comey went on to say, under oath, that such a statement may not have been a direct order per se, but he saw it that way, saying, “I took it as direction.”

“I was honestly concerned that he might lie about the nature of our meeting.”
When asked why he decided to stray from his usual routine following a presidential meeting and instead take detailed notes of his conversation with President Trump, Comey replied, “I was honestly concerned that he might lie about the nature of our meeting.” Comey added that he had met with Barack Obama and George W. Bush in the past and never took such notes of the meetings, and that such records would help defend himself should the President lie.

“Those were lies, plain and simple.”
Comey began his testimony almost immediately attacking the honesty and integrity of the Trump administration. When discussing the fact that President Trump stated that the FBI was in disarray, Comey stated, “The administration then chose to defame me and more importantly the FBI by saying that the organization was in disarray, that it was poorly led, that the workforce had lost confidence in its leader. Those were lies, plain and simple.”

“There’s no doubt that I was fired because of the Russia investigation.”
If there was any possibility before the hearing that Trump had fired Comey for reasons unrelated to the Russian investigation, that possibility seems slim now. Comey made it clear that he took the words Trump used during his Lester Holt interview, where he said that Comey was fired because of the Russian Investigation, at face value. One would assume that this would amount to clear obstruction of justice.

“Lordy, I hope there are tapes.”
On May 12th, President Trump sent out a tweet suggesting that there may have been tape recordings of the meetings he had with the former FBI Director. When Comey was questioned about the possibility of such tapes, he replied “Lordy, I hope there are tapes.”

“I was so stunned by the conversation that I just took it in.”
This statement was made by Comey regarding the conversation he had with the President related to dropping the investigation into Michael Flynn. “Release all the tapes. I’m good with it,” he added.

“I remember thinking, ‘This is a very disturbing development.’”
On February 14, while meeting with the President in the Oval Office, the President instructed Attorney General Jeff Sessions and Senior Adviser Jared Kushner to leave the room. At this moment, Comey said he realized that “something big [was] about to happen”.  Shortly after is when Trump told Comey he hoped that he could let the Flynn investigation go. This is the conversation in which Comey felt as though Trump’s words were ‘a direction’ rather than simply a statement. Comey went on to tell the Senate Committee, “I remember thinking, ‘This is a very disturbing development’”.

“My common sense told me, ‘what’s going on here, he’s looking to get something in exchange for granting my request to stay in the job.’”
This was also a statement Comey made at the hearing regarding the Flynn conversation. This statement suggests that Comey saw Trump’s actions and comments as a means of trying to get Comey to do as he wished instead of maintaining his independence.

“It’s a question I don’t think I should answer in an open setting.”
When asked if he thinks Trump Colluded with Russia in any way, Comey’s response was a short, but very telling “It’s a question I don’t think I should answer in an open setting.”

Trump’s son seems to confirm Comey’s account of the president’s comments on Flynn investigation

Donald Trump Jr., not his father, provided Twitter responses to James Comey’s testimony on Capitol Hill.>>Learn 9 things you need to know about Donald Trump Jr. ... Photo: The Washington Post / The Washington Post / Getty Images / 2017 The Washington Post

 

Soon after former FBI director James B. Comey testified that President Donald Trump told him that he “hoped” the FBI would drop its investigation of former national security adviser Michael Flynn, the president’s personal lawyer flatly denied that accusation and said Trump “never, in form or substance, directed or suggested that Mr. Comey stop investigating anyone.”

But Donald Trump Jr. – the president’s eldest son – seemed to confirm Comey’s version of events in a Saturday interview on Fox News as he tried to emphasize the fact that his father did not directly order Comey to stop investigating Flynn.

“When he tells you to do something, guess what? There’s no ambiguity in it, there’s no, ‘Hey, I’m hoping,'” Trump said. “You and I are friends: ‘Hey, I hope this happens, but you’ve got to do your job.’ That’s what he told Comey. And for this guy as a politician to then go back and write a memo: ‘Oh, I felt threatened.’ He felt so threatened – but he didn’t do anything.”…

Trump thinks he’s vindicated in Russia probe? Not so fast

Updated 8:28 PM ET, Fri June 9, 2017

*SOURCE*

[EXCERPT.]

Testifying before the Senate Intelligence Committee, Comey expressed his strong feeling that the President is an inveterate liar who could not be trusted. President Trump ended his brief Twitter hiatus by saying: “Despite so many false statements and lies, total and complete vindication . . . and WOW, Comey is a leaker!”
At his press conference Friday in the Rose Garden, Trump doubled down by saying: “Yesterday showed no collusion, no obstruction.” Trump, who said he would testify under oath to deny Comey’s claims about their conversation, added that the testimony was an “excuse by Democrats” who lost an election “they shouldn’t have lost.” More fake news from President Trump.
Trump’s strident sense of confidence about his invulnerability in the expanding investigation is a result of the President being surrounded by weak “yes” men and women as well as being defended by a (My addition: FAUX) conservative media which spins every story his way.
But just because a president says he is “winning,” that doesn’t mean it’s true. The Russia-gate controversy is taking an immense toll on the administration and on the Republican Party.
One of the most revealing parts of James Comey’s written testimony was the sense that in private, Trump seems to understand that the Russia investigation is a big problem, notwithstanding his endless bluster. He asked Comey to “lift the cloud” that hovers over the White House as a result of the investigation. Unless Comey is not telling the truth, and there is no evidence that this is the case, Trump is not being straight with his own supporters.
The investigations have consumed his presidency and they are not going away any time in the near future. Trump has zero major legislative accomplishments to speak of at this point. Every time there is even a little bit of momentum for legislation, such as the House passage of the health care bill or Trump’s outline of a tax cut, more damaging information comes out of the Russia probe that distracts Congress from the business of making policy…
While most Republicans keep their heads buried in the sand, more nonpartisan officials are speaking up. Former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper, hardly a fiery Democratic activist, said that Watergate “pales” in comparison to the current investigation into the Trump administration and Russia.
Comey, who many Democrats feel handed Trump the presidential victory with his announcements about the Hillary Clinton email scandal, was unequivocal in his assessment that something is profoundly wrong in this White House. The actions of Sens. Richard Burr and Mark Warner provided some hope that the committee will be able to conduct a genuine investigation, while special counsel Robert Mueller is by all accounts a tough prosecutor who will do everything needed to get to the bottom of this story…
Comey’s testimony was damning. He laid out the case for obstruction of justice, even if he said that was not for him to decide. He also offered a picture of a president who doesn’t know the boundaries of power.
Given where President Trump is in his term, and the damage the Republicans can easily face as a result of the Russia investigation, Trump’s claim of victory shows that it is the President who is living in the bubble — his own imagination.

I find it disturbing, and really pretty sickening, that so few of the Republican Senators (McCain’s confusing spiel at the end aside) expressed deep concern about Russia’s efforts to hack the election and the threat that poses to the U.S. What a long, odd road we’ve traveled where the party of Joseph McCarthy has now become a party that downplays Russian interference in our election and has not expressed their grave concerns in any robust way.

Comey not only spoke of Russia’s interference in the 2016 election, he also warned us that they are not done and will be back. The agenda, as Comey put it, of undermining the American “experiment” with our democratic government, will go beyond one campaign season. And what has Trump had to say about the interference? He has alternated between denying it, shrugging his shoulders, or daring to say that we should move on from it.

No, Donald, the truth will not be buried, ignored, or trivialized. This is the integrity of the most powerful nation on earth at stake. This is bigger than even one presidential term. Comey laid it out: this is not a partisan issue, this is an American one. But only a real patriot would understand that distinction, and Trump is no patriot.

 

“The president is not a liar” will sit alongside “I am not a crook” as the most disingenuous statement ever uttered by a US presidential administration.

The portrait James Comey painted of our current president wasn’t just sad. It was sickening. It was also completely credible, utterly consistent with the candidate who blustered and lied his way to 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue.

James Comey is a man of integrity. He wants to do the right thing, regardless of party. He struggled with his decision to notify Congress that more Clinton emails had been discovered that “might” be pertinent to the Clinton investigation. It raised concern that classified information might be have been compromised. It shook the public’s confidence in Clinton at a very vulnerable time, right before Nov. 8th. Should he have done that? What if there had been something there and he waited until after the election? There was nothing — it was a red herring that the Russians had tossed in. So he played right into the core goal of Russia’s hacking effort. He’s a man who tries to do the right thing without partisan loyalty…

…Mr. Comey may have made questionable statements and did questionable things, but he is not known as a liar. The President of the United States, though, is. He and his administration have no credibility — and he has been the one to shred it with his childish tweets and blatant “falsehoods”. Every speech, from the campaign until now, is reviewed by fact checkers and found to be chock full of baloney.

Americans will look back at this year and wonder how we could have elected such an unscrupulous, ignorant and incompetent person to lead a great nation.

This is not just one person’s word against another — this is the word of a former FBI director with an impeccable reputation for honesty against a person who happens to be President who may well be impeached and has no regard for the truth whatsoever. For Trump, ‘right’ is synonymous with ‘whatever works,’ and wrong is whatever leads to him getting caught in his web of lies. 

After reading Mr. Comey’s statement and listening to his testimony yesterday, two concepts become crystal clear: 1) Comey has complete respect for the Office of President of the United States and Trump has none, and 2) Comey takes the job responsibilities of Director of the FBI completely serious and Trump does not. To his great credit, Comey sensed this out very early and he carried out his job adding the memos and documentation to prove it. Comey’s perceptions and judgment of Trump may help save our country’s integrity if Mr. Mueller follows through with the investigation that Comey help start.

The White House has offered no proof or evidence to counter any of Mr. Comey’s allegations. Mr. Comey, on the other hand, has left a trail of corroborative information in his wake. The evidence he offered can be further examined and other parties can be questioned regarding the validity of his testimony. This is not he said he said situation. All the White House has done is to issue denials.

We all know Trump lies constantly. He lies so much his supporters say don’t listen to his words, just listen to what’s in his heart. OK, Trump. Show us what’s in your heart. Step up and make your case. Show us your evidence. That’s how these things work in the real world where people have to follow laws.

Trump clearly obstructed Comey as head of the FBI. Trump fired Comey, stopping him from further investigating possible connections between Trump and his associates and Russia’s corrupt practices surrounding the 2016 presidential election. Comey was not fired because Comey wasn’t doing his job but because he remained independent, persistent, and relentless in his search for truth.

The President of the United States is a liar and most likely obstructed justice. Unfortunately, the Republican party no longer values country above all else. The only thing worse than a pathological liar who is President of the United States is a Republican party that betrays the country for power.

=====

Lastly, for now…

OPINION: It wasn’t Watergate, but Comey hearing could be Trump’s Waterloo

*SOURCE*

[EXCERPT.]

This was James Comey’s day.

In no way did it lift the cloud for Donald Trump.

Comey was calm, candid and deliberate. He clearly made the case that this President tampered and leaned on him to not do his job. Comey did not hold back.

With all the controversy surrounding him, he still enjoys the respect of all 15 Senators on this select committee. When they addressed him they always called him “Director Comey” (although as everyone knew he no longer held that title), not “Mr. Comey.”

Comey would not directly say that the President had committed “obstruction of justice.” But he surely implied it.

Comey’s personal estimation of Donald Trump was devastating. He talked about “the nature of the person” and that he wrote everything down after meeting with him or talking to him on the phone because he thought “he might lie.”

There was absolutely no doubt in Comey’s mind on why he was fired.

He skillfully used Trump’s own words to explain this action. The words which Trump said to the Russian foreign minister and Ambassador to “relieve the pressure” on the Russian investigation.

These words were said, unbelievably, in the Oval Office itself.

On the subject of taking it easy on former National Security Director Michael Flynn (“I hope you can see your way clear to letting this go, to letting Flynn go. He is a good guy.”), he said he took Trump’s statement “as a directive.”…

…This one morning, one day hearing will be remembered for its business-like manner. There were no moments of high drama and few surprises. Polite and nonconfrontational was its hallmark.

But for Donald Trump, this day very well might be cited as the beginning of a tortured path that could lead to impeachment and indictment.

Possibly resignation or ultimately complete and total disgrace.

=====

CONCLUSION AND SUMMATION.

1). Trump lied and is a liar.

2) There IS collusion and ties to Putin and other Russian figures.

3) Trump fired Comey over investigation of Michael Flynn/Russian ties.

4) Trump should be impeached, indicted, and removed, and imprisoned.

NOTICE, NO mention of the Department of Education, the EPA, The Federal Reserve, the Income Tax, Big Government Micro-management, nor the so-called “right” to murder the unborn, nor mention of any “right” for ANYONE to redefine marriage and family. We will look further into this as we go along.

==================

AMENDMENT IX

The enumeration in the Constitution, of certain rights, shall not be construed to deny or disparage others retained by the people.

AMENDMENT X

The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people.

=============

We Will look closer at the 1st eleven Amendments later, along with the 14th Amendment and The Declaration of Independence shortly.

Kentucky’s Resolution 1:

That the several states composing the United States of America are not united on the principle of unlimited submission to their general government; but that, by compact, under the style and title of a Constitution for the United States, and of amendments thereto, they constituted a general government for special purposes, delegated to that government certain definite powers, reserving, each state to itself, the residuary mass of right to their own self-government; and that whensoever the general government assumes undelegated powers, its acts are unauthoritative, void, and of no force; that to this compact each state acceded as a state, and is an integral party, its co-States forming, as to itself, the other party; that this government, created by this compact, was not made the exclusive or final judge of the extent of the powers delegated to itself, since that would have made its discretion, and not the Constitution, the measure of its powers; but that, as in all other cases of compact among powers having no common judge, each party has an equal right to judge for itself, as well of infractions as of the mode and measure of redress.

 

 

Kentucky Resolution 2.
That the Constitution of the United States, having delegated to Congress a power to punish treason, counterfeiting the securities and current coin of the United States, piracies, and felonies committed on the high seas, and offenses against the law of nations, and no other crimes, whatsoever; and it being true as a general principle, and one of the amendments to the Constitution having also declared, that “the powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people,” therefore the act of Congress, passed on the 14th day of July, 1798, and intitled “An Act in addition to the act intitled An Act for the punishment of certain crimes against the United States,” as also the act passed by them on the—day of June, 1798, intitled “An Act to punish frauds committed on the bank of the United States,” (and all their other acts which assume to create, define, or punish crimes, other than those so enumerated in the Constitution,) are altogether void, and of no force whatsoever.
==============

The Virginia Resolution.

That this Assembly doth explicitly and peremptorily declare, that it views the powers of the federal government as resulting from the compact to which the states are parties, as limited by the plain sense and intention of the instrument constituting that compact, as no further valid than they are authorized by the grants enumerated in that compact; and that, in case of a deliberate, palpable, and dangerous exercise of other powers, not granted by the said compact, the states, who are parties thereto, have the right, and are in duty bound, to interpose, for arresting the progress of the evil, and for maintaining, within their respective limits, the authorities, rights and liberties, appertaining to them.

=======================

THE BILL OF RIGHTS – FULL TEXT

Amendment I

Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the government for a redress of grievances.

  1. This directly references and restricts CONGRESS; The States and The People CAN freely express, display and celebrate their Christian faith, regardless of denomination, however they freely decide, and ON public lands.
  2. ALL The Federal and State Building of the time had Bible Scripture, Biblical references, and/or Biblical depictions on and/or in them,
  3. 27 of the 56 Founding Fathers that signed our Declaration of Independence, and the 41 that signed our Constitution were seminary educated Ministers, many were ORDAINED Ministers of the various Christian denominations of the day.
  4. One of the FIRST acts of the VERY FIRST CONGRESS was to purchase and distribute 20,000 BIBLES that were destroyed in the Revolutionary War…WITH TAX DOLLARS.
  5. Also the FIRST CONGRESS established and funded WITH TAX DOLLARS The American Bible and Tract Society.
  6. Also the FIRST CONGRESS established Christian Chaplains for each branch of the military, and each branch of government.
  7. The MOST QUOTED source of all America’s Founders was The Bible, Blackstone and Burke were also cited, and they both were Christian men and based their views and writings upon Biblical Principles.
  8. There is NO Constitutional “wall of separation between church and state”. Christians do NOT have less, NOR inferior/2nd class rights. As already noted America’s Founders were deeply Christian men, and 98% of all American’s were professing AND practicing Christians.
  9. We can FREELY discuss sports, the weather, favorite dishes, family, politics and religion ANYWHERE AT ANY TIME IN AMERICA.

 

Amendment II

A well regulated militia, being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear arms, shall not be infringed.

  1.  The Founders equated The People to and with the Militia.
  2. There was to be NO law to infringe upon the rights of the citizenry to own, possess and carry a gun at ANY time, ANY where, of ANY type. There is NO Constitutional gun law except and apart from the 2nd Amendment.

Amendment III

No soldier shall, in time of peace be quartered in any house, without the consent of the owner, nor in time of war, but in a manner to be prescribed by law.

  1. The Founders KNEW that Liberty was insolubly linked to the Rule of Law, NOT the rule of man/men.
  2. Hence the adage “Your right to swing your fist stops at my nose.” America’s Founders, the ones who wrote the 1st Amendment, ALSO held sacred property rights. There was NO sense whatsoever of shared property, government ownership/control of property, or communism anywhere in Constitutional Law as America’s Founders wrote, and gave it to us.

Amendment IV

The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized.

  1. America’s Founders KNEW that Liberty and one’s Rights meant nothing IF the government could violate a person’s PROPERTY for any, i.e. unreasonable reason.
  2. Hence America’s Founders codified into Constitutional Law the God-given,sacred right to private property. “A man’s home/property was HIS castle.” it was once believed and adhered to.

Amendment V

No person shall be held to answer for a capital, or otherwise infamous crime, unlesson a presentment or indictment of a grand jury, except in cases arising in the land or naval forces, or in the militia, when in actual service in time of war or public danger;nor shall any person be subject for the same offense to be twice put in jeopardy of life or limb; nor shall be compelled in any criminal case to be a witness against himself, nor be deprived of LIFE, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor shall private property be taken for public use, without JUST compensation.

  1. NO person will held for any capital or infamous crime UNLESS a presentment/indictment from a grand jury is duly issued, and there has been proper evidence, 2 or more witnesses affirming the same crime, beforehand.
  2. NO ONE shall ever be charged for the SAME crime more than once.
  3. America’s Founders listed LIFE as a right here, in the Declaration of Independence and in the 14th Amendment FIRST, recognising LIFE as a God-given, right that they THREE TIMES mentioned, and TWICE codify into CONSTITUTIONAL LAW. NO WHERE is the so-called “right to an abortion” ever even hinted at.
  4. ALL charges MUST be made via the Due Process of LAW; America’s Founders established the Rule of Law to safe-guard Liberties and Rights, NOT a rule of man/men to rule as authoritarian tyrants and despots.
  5. And NO PRIVATE property could EVER be taken without JUST compensation, and the due process of LAW. And there is NO “right” to take ANYONE’S PRIVATE property to give to another private entity for private use, (as Trump has violated many times).

Amendment VI

In all criminal prosecutions, the accused shall enjoy the right to a speedy and public trial, by an impartial jury of the state and district wherein the crime shall have been committed, which district shall have been previously ascertained by law, and to be informed of the nature and cause of the accusation; to be confronted with the witnesses against him; to have compulsory process for obtaining witnesses in his favor, and to have the assistance of counsel for his defense.

  1. The Rule of Law was/IS Supreme. NO man or group was exempted, NONE preferred.
  2. There is to be NO favoritism, NO bigotry, NO pre-judging, NO “secret” charges, evidence, NOR “secret” witnesses.
  3. It was to be SPEEDY AND PUBLIC; NOT done in a darkened corner and to be drawn out with the accused languishing in jail indefinitely. This eliminates the years and decades long waits for execution that is common today among the those found guilty of capital crimes.

Amendment VII

In suits at common law, where the value in controversy shall exceed twenty dollars, the right of trial by jury shall be preserved, and no fact tried by a jury, shall be otherwise reexamined in any court of the United States, than according to the rules of the common law.

 

  1. Once a trial by jury reached a verdict then that person/crime, and NONE of the facts of the case can reexamined in ANY other court EXCEPT via the rules of COMMON Law.
  2. This appertains to all non-capital crimes.
  3. There was NOT to be a set of laws for different classes of people, it was The COMMON Law for ALL people.

Amendment VIII

Excessive bail shall not be required, nor excessive fines imposed, nor cruel and unusual punishments inflicted.

  1. The punishment was to meet, NOT exceed the crime.
  2. Hence, NO ONE was to be executed for theft, fraud, or other non-capital offences.
  3. The death penalty was NOT and is NOT “cruel and unusual”. See also HERE.

Amendment IX

The enumeration in the Constitution, of certain rights, shall not be construed to deny or disparage others retained by the people.

  1. The Bill of Rights was NOT to be considered “all the rights and Liberties” of The People, and States.
  2. The Founders believed passionately that Liberty and Rights were LOCAL, i.e. FIRST with The People, Then with The States, LASTLY, with the Federal government.
  3. There was to be NO ruling, NO dispatching of rights and liberties, from a far off by a unknowing, uncaring people.

Amendment X

The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the states, are reserved to the states respectively, or to the people.

  1. NO law, NO ruling from the federal government was to ever supersede The Constitution.
  2. NO law, NO ruling from the federal government was to ever restrict, redefine nor prohibit God-given, Constitutionally-Codified Law, rights and liberties.
  3. The Founders established the preeminence of law, rights, and liberties being LOCAL, ie FIRST with The People, Then with The States, LASTLY with the federal government.
  4. America’s Founders did NOT want NOR establish a rule of man/a group from a far off.
  5. They established the Rule of Law that began LOCALLY, individually.
  6. Government, first local, then State, then federal ONLY got involved to resolve disputes.

Amendment XI

The Judicial power of the United States shall not be construed to extend to any suit in law or equity, commenced or prosecuted against one of the United States by Citizens of another State, or by Citizens or Subjects of any Foreign State.

  1. This prevented a State or federal court from ruling on a decision in another State.
  2. It also prohibited the federal courts from becoming involved in a decision between States.
  3. ONLY upon appeal via the due process of law would a federal court become involved in deciding Stated cases.

The entirety of America’s Founding Fathers world-view was:

  1. As little government as possible.
  2. As much individual Liberty and Rights as possible.
  3. One person’s rights and liberties was NEVER to transgress against or trespass upon another’s rights and liberties.
  4. There was NO prohibition against the FREE and PUBLIC display, expression and celebration of the Christian faith.
  5. There was NO prohibition against a FREE press, regardless of their political and/or religious views.
  6. The deciding of any conflict, and trying and punishment of any crime was to begin local and ONLY move up upon appeal, when allowed, and then via the due process of law.
  7. We were founded upon the rule of LawNOT the rule of man/ a group.
  8. America’s Founders CLEARLY saw LIFE as a God-given right that they thrice codified into Law.

FOR THOSE WHO SAY THERE IS “NO COMMON DEFINITION OF CONSERVATISM”, HERE IS THE COMMON DEFINITION OF CONSERVATISM WITH IT’S CORE PRINCIPLES, VIEWS AND VALUES.

 

DEFINED:

A conservative is someone who rises above his personal self-interest and promotes moral and economic values beneficial to all. A conservative is willing to learn and advocate the insights of economics and the logic of the Bible for the benefit of everyone else. A conservative favors conserving value by not giving handouts to anyone who does not really need them.

A conservative typically adheres to principles of personal responsibility, moral values, and limited government, agreeing with George Washington‘s Farewell Address that “religion and morality are indispensable supports” to political prosperity.[1][2]

Phil Crane, the leading conservative congressman in the House from 1969 to 2005, urged people to make the world a better place than where they found it, and quoted frequently from the Bible in pursuit of that goal.[3]

Former President Ronald Reagan said, “The basis of conservatism is a desire for less government interference or less centralized authority or more individual freedom.”[4]

 

IT’S PRINCIPLES, VALUES AND VIEWS.

Specifically, conservatives seek or support:

AND,

SOURCE.

AND HERE.

=====

NOT ONE word that I posted is “my own invented and peculiar defining and view of” Conservatism.

I searched. studied, researched and compiled what is commonly known, knowable and accepted as Conservatism. 

To be true, yes, there has been a splintering of what some call Conservatism into factions and groups, this is a divide and conquer tactic predominantly employed by The Left and by the ignorant or some self-seeking motive.

BUT when one traditionally claims Conservatism, THIS is it.  

NO longer is the excuse of “NO Common understanding and defining of Conservatism” a valid excuse for claiming to BE Conservative and yet NOT embrace Conservative Principles, and to actually share and hold to Liberal Principles and Values. THIS forever removes that as the phoney cloak to operate as a “Liberal-in-Conservative-Clothing”, such as Milo Yianopolous, Steve Bannon, Steve Mnuchin, Rex Tillerson, and Donald Trump, and a host of other Alt-Right/Fascists and R.I.N.O.s .

ANYONE who from this point on says “I didn’t know/ There is NO Common understanding of what Conservatism is” is either a liar or stupid. And neither should be listened to or followed.

Ever since (so-called) Conservatives that I once admired began to slavishly slobber their support of Little, Lying, Donnie El Trampo I’ve held back the full fury of calling them out for their HYPOCRISY of supporting the most boorish, egotistical, rude, vile, vulgar, LIBERAL (again, so-called) Republican candidate to EVER run.

That ends NOW.

I calling them out en masse and in force.

From Rush Limbaugh to Sean Hannity to Anne Coulter to Michael Savage to Michele Malkin to Jeff Sessions to Ted Cruz to Brent Bozell…they are getting what they deserve:
EXPOSED AS FRAUDS.

When I read that Derek Hunter and Brent Bozell were defending Greg “The Slammer” Giantfart, and attacking Ben Jacobs, THE ASSAULT VICTIM, I had enough playing nice with these PRETEND Conservatives.

They could repent. Say they’re sorry. Make honest and real amends. And BECOME the Conservatives they say they are…BUT UNTIL THEN this applies to them, and ALL like them who support, embrace, endorse and/or excuse this:

If you support THIS, then you are NOT Conservative:

BODY SLAMMING FOR ASKING QUESTIONS, EVEN IN A SNOOTY MANNER.

For most of the night and this morning I heard (so-called) Conservatives and Republicans say it WAS justified because:

  1.  “Liberals had it coming to them. From Code Pink to OWS to Ferguson to The Black Panthers to ACORN to the Liberal MSM…”
    First, I concede that all those are vile and mostly violent. And…so what?!! What does ANY of THAT have to do with Ben Jacobs? All Ben Jacobs did was walk in a room and ask questions. How does THAT justify getting body slammed?!!  ANYONE defending Giantfart and attacking Jacobs is NOT a Conservative.
  2.  “Because Obama spied on Conservatives Giantfart was justified in body-slamming Ben Jacobs.”
    WHAT?!!
    What did Ben Jacobs have to do with Obama’s spying?!!
    My brother ate 6 cookies before dinner, so I should get a whooping?!!
    ANYONE defending Giantfart and attacking Jacobs is NOT a Conservative.
  3. It’s “fake news”….um, THE WHOLE FOX NEWS TEAM WITNESSED AND CORROBORATED IT. Is Fox News “fake news” to you Trumpsters now??
  4. Lastly, I many on so-called Conservatives say it’s a hyped story.  No. It’s a CRIME called ASSAULT!

ANYONE defending Giantfart and attacking Jacobs is NOT a Conservative.

Support, defend, are an apologist for Trump then you are NOT a Conservative.

(REAL) Conservatives Against Trump

*SOURCE*

[EXCERPTS.]

DAVID McINTOSH

Donald Trump is no conservative. He’s a populist whose theme is: Our government is broken, and I’ll fix it.

He’s right on point one: Both parties have failed to lead. Obama and congressional Democrats manipulate the levers of power to push America farther toward European socialism; Republicans promise free-market alternatives but end up caving in to pressure or carrying water for the GOP’s own big-government special interests.

The American people have signaled in recent elections that they’ve had enough of business as usual, and now they want to clean house. Yet Trump is no better than what we already have. He’ll say anything to get a vote but give us more of the same if he gets into office.

Trump beguiles us, defies the politically correct media, and bullies anyone who points out that the emperor has no clothes. None of that makes him a conservative who cherishes liberty.

For decades, Trump has argued for big government. About health care he has said: “Everybody’s got to be covered” and “The government’s going to pay for it.” He has called for boycotts of American companies he doesn’t like, told bureaucrats to use eminent domain to get him better deals on property he wanted to develop, and proudly proposed the largest tax increase in American history. Trump has also promised to use tariffs to punish companies that incur his disfavor. He offers grand plans for massive new spending but no serious proposals for spending cuts or entitlement reforms.

These are not the ideas of a small-government conservative who understands markets. They are, instead, the ramblings of a liberal wannabe strongman who will use and abuse the power of the federal government to impose his ideas on the country.

My old boss, Ronald Reagan, once said, “The Founding Fathers knew a government can’t control the economy without controlling people.” Reagan fought for economic freedom, for reining in government so the private sector could thrive. That’s economic conservatism. It is not Donald Trump. — David McIntosh is the president of the Club for Growth.

THOMAS SOWELL

In a country with more than 300 million people, it is remarkable how obsessed the media have become with just one — Donald Trump. What is even more remarkable is that, after seven years of repeated disasters, both domestically and internationally, under a glib egomaniac in the White House, so many potential voters are turning to another glib egomaniac to be his successor. No doubt much of the stampede of Republican voters toward Mr. Trump is based on their disgust with the Republican establishment. It is easy to understand why there would be pent-up resentments among Republican voters. But are elections held for the purpose of venting emotions?

No doubt much of the stampede of Republican voters toward Mr. Trump is based on their disgust with the Republican establishment. It is easy to understand why there would be pent-up resentments among Republican voters. But are elections held for the purpose of venting emotions?

No national leader ever aroused more fervent emotions than Adolf Hitler did in the 1930s. Watch some old newsreels of German crowds delirious with joy at the sight of him. The only things at all comparable in more recent times were the ecstatic crowds that greeted Barack Obama when he burst upon the political scene in 2008.

Elections, however, have far more lasting and far more serious — or even grim — consequences than emotional venting. The actual track record of crowd pleasers, whether Juan Perón in Argentina, Obama in America, or Hitler in Germany, is very sobering, if not painfully depressing.

After the disastrous nuclear deal with Iran, we are entering an era when people alive at this moment may live to see a day when American cities are left in radioactive ruins. We need all the wisdom, courage, and dedication in the next president — and his or her successors — to save ourselves and our children from such a catastrophe.

A shoot-from-the-hip, belligerent show-off is the last thing we need or can afford. — Thomas Sowell is a senior fellow at the Hoover Institution, Stanford University.

MY COMMENTS:

Now there was editing done for brevity, and to rid the thread of spam and trolls…so it may at times be hard to follow…the bottom line is this: Even people who want to support Trump are increasingly finding it harder to do, AND are beginning to harshly criticise him.

When even those (tepidly) for you are moving away FROM you…you must be really wrong/bad.

Turkey’s Erdogan Turns On Trump Administration

Photo of Chuck Ross

CHUCK ROSS
Reporter
[EXCERPTS.]

The honeymoon between President Trump and Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erodgan appears to be coming to an end.

In a blistering speech on Thursday, just two weeks after meeting with Trump in the Oval Office, Erdogan aired a lengthy list of grievances against the Trump administration.

According to a translation provided by Washington Hatti, a U.S.-based Turkish news site, Erdogan complained that the State Department recently decided to bring an end to an annual event celebrating Ramadan, the Islamic holy month. He also blasted the administration for refusing to extradite Fethullah Gulen, a Muslim cleric living in exile in Pennsylvania.

Erdogan, a former political ally of Gulen’s, accuses the imam of masterminding last July’s failed coup attempt…

=====

MY COMMENTS:

Never mind that Turkey and Erdogan are feigning to be upset over what an American President SHOULD do.

Never mind that Trump is boorish, bullish and egotistical even in doing something right he finds the most wrong way to do it.

No.

Never mind any of that.

The real problem is THIS:

The powder-keg that is the Muslim and Marxist dominated middle-east has just become more volatile.

Consider the unrest and turmoil ALREADY in Iraq, Iran, Syria, Lebanon, Jordan, Egypt, Libya, Yemen, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, Pakistan, and now add Turkey.

Russia, China and N. Korea involved in this toxic stew only adding intrigue and more multi-faceted danger…of a WORLD WAR III level.

Toss in that Trump is as much a real Leader as a  drunk, blink ape on PCP, constantly alienating our allies and cozying up to our enemies…and stirring up unrest here at home…

Let me just two things:

  1. We REAL Conservatives WARNED YOU,
  2. This will NOT end well.

 

So, unless Trump and his cabal of Ruskie-ites is arrested and removed post haste get ready for WWIII.

Follow The Corrupt Money Trail

RE-PRINTED ENTIRELY FROM AN EMAIL SENT ME FROM JASON TAYLOR AND HIS SITE “EAT, PRAY, VOTE”

I wrote NONE of this.

By Jason Taylor

Donald Trump, Jared Kushner, and Ivanka are all about greed. The relentless pursuit of more and more wealth is their fundamental raison d’être. Kushner is under water with 666 Fifth Avenue and is desperate to avoid bankruptcy at any cost. It does not seem that difficult to assume that Russian banks would be eager to provide financing with many strings attached, just as they did with Trump. Putin must be licking his chops and salivating over the leverage he has on the Trump cartel. The guiding investigation principle never changes, follow the money.

Jared Kushner, a 36-year-old with no government experience, no public service, who’s admission to Harvard followed a multi-million dollar donation from dad, who was described as a C average student, who’s work experience is working for his Dad’s real estate business, and who’s worldview seems to be one of competition among winners and losers, cannot be a “senior” White House advisor. At best, he’s an intern, a novice or “junior.” But the reality is that he has no job-relevant knowledge or experience, so nepotism is the only reason he is in this job. He’s uninformed, unqualified, and untrustworthy.

Jared suffers from the same cognitive bias as his father-in-law: the Dunning-Kruger effect, whereby those of low ability adhere to an illusory superiority because they have overestimated their own cognitive ability. In other words, they are too dumb to realize how dumb they are, and money insulates them from having to confront the truth. The arrogant stupidity of both men is breathtaking. Jared is the one who paid double the going rate per square foot for 666 Fifth Avenue. Every time I read about either one of them I feel the need to take a shower and wash the sleaziness off.

The fact that a back channel was sought between the Oval Office and the Kremlin via a facility of the KGB by the President-Elect, the thing that astounds me most as an American is a continued support for the Trump Administration being provided by the GOP. One can only imagine the fallout generated by the Republican leadership if something even approaching the level of this subversive act had been revealed to have on been attempted during Barack Obama’s tenure.

Jared and Ivanka are two pampered children who have not grown out of the “dress up and pretend” phase of childhood. They dress up in Mommy’s high heels and Daddy’s suit and tie, pick up a briefcase, strike a pose and saunter out for another day of make-believe, as uninformed as any 5-year-old on matters of national and international importance. These are the two people who perhaps have the most influence on 45’s decisions. Follow the money from Trump’s Russian investment partners who lost big dollars on Trump projects that failed to go to completion. Russian oligarchs don’t just walk away from a few million, they expect payback in some form. What are the odds that this is about establishing channels to implement payback? I’d take that bet.

The bigger problem, obviously, is Trump, who put the likes of Flynn, Kushner, Sessions et al. in key positions in his administration. There were enough warnings about Flynn and he wound up in a key position. Kushner is Trump’s son-in-law and all that, but Trump, who supposedly knows something about real estate, should have known that Kushner paid well above market price for a building in Manhattan and has been trying to keep that afloat for a while. Not exactly a smart move.

If Kushner can’t even get a real estate deal right, despite his family’s involvement in that field for years, what made Trump think that Jared can help him with simple things, let alone matters such as Mideast peace, which has stymied seasoned professionals for decades. Kushner’s cozy relationship with the Chinese and his overtures to the Russians may have had more to do with his business interests that the country’s interests. Conflict of interest is more of a rule than an exception in the Trump administration, with the president himself mired in questionable deals. Nepotism adds to the problem.

Trump may make frequent proclamations that he is “‘like, a really smart person,” but he has been anything but that so far. His improvisational presidency is proof of that.

I keep noticing the Paul Ryan and Mitch McConnell Bobble-Head dolls for sale on Amazon, and various other places. They serve to remind me of where the real stupidity lies. These two have it within their undeserved power to end this destruction and do so quickly. By their inaction, they are fully supporting this stunning attack on our democracy. They are diminishing our global reputation as a beacon of light in a darkening world. Supporting this spoiled man-child and his equally spoiled clan will not end well for either of them nor for our beloved country.

However, these Bobble- Heads keep sitting there doing virtually nothing but wagging their heads, smirking and grinning, pretending not to notice. Theirs is a blind spot so obvious that even the least informed can spot it. It’s called placing party before country for personal power and money.

Donald Trump Selects Billionaire Banking Shark Wilbur Ross as Commerce Secretary

As reported by the Washington Times this Thursday, President-elect Donald Trump has named another new face to his cabinet: billionaire investor Wilbur Ross as Commerce Secretary.

Ross, AKA the “king of bankruptcy”, is a fan of Trump’s blunt tone and aggressive plans to reinvigorate the economy. Forbes estimates he is worth nearly $3 billion.

“Part of the reason why I’m supporting Trump is that I think we need a more radical, new approach to government – at least in the US – from what we’ve had before,” he told CNBC in June. Ross believes the middle class feels left behind in the current economy. He is confident that Trump’s election signals a shift to a “less politically correct direction.”

Ross spent nearly two and a half decades working as a banker at Rothschild, where he developed a “lucrative specialty in bankruptcy and corporate restructurings,” reports the Times. He went on to found his own firm in 2000 and earned a significant part of his fortune by investing in struggling factories in the Midwest – a region that supported Trump due to his promises to generate more manufacturing jobs and penalize companies for outsourcing jobs to other countries…

 [NOTE: The CONSERVATIVE way to stop business from going over seas, or north or south of the border, is to:

  1. GUT CORPORATE INCOME TAXES.
  2. ABOLISH CAPITAL GAINS TAX.
  3. ABOLISH THE DEATH/INHERITANCE TAX.
  4. ABOLISH THE WINDFALL PROFITS TAX.
  5. ABOLISH THE INCOME TAX, IRS, AND FEDERAL RESERVE.
  6. ABOLISH UNIONS.

THAT IS the CONSERVATIVE way to stop businesses from going outside the states. DT’s way/plan is sheer Marxism, and ALWAYS FAILS…EPICALLY.]

NOW BACK TO THE ARTICLE EXCERPTS…

…Ross experienced bad publicity in 2006 when a coal mine he owned exploded, killing 12 miners in Sago, West Virginia. Federal safety inspectors discovered 208 violations during the ensuing investigation.

“Oh, my God, it’s the worst week of my entire life,” he told ABC after the explosion. Ross told the press that he was aware of the safety violations but that the mine’s management team had insisted that the mine was “safe.”

Apparently “draining the swamp” includes hiring a George Soros lackey to be in charge of the Treasury – bet you didn’t see that comin!

President-elect will pick former Goldman Sachs banker Steven Mnuchin to head the Treasury Department

Y’all remember when Trump cultists were screaming at Ted Cruz’s wife that she was evil because she had worked with Goldman Sachs? Now it’s a prerequisite to work for Trump!!

From the New York Times:

From 2003 to 2004, Mnuchin worked as chief executive of SFM Capital Management, which the Wall Street Journal reports is backed by Soros. He also worked for Soros Fund Management LLC, according to Bloomberg.

Isn’t it funny how no conspiracy theory was too stupid or outrageous for Trump supporters to push before he got elected, but now everyone will look away as a former Soros lackey gets in charge of the frickin’ Treasury?! LOL!!

Where Is The Outrage? Trumpers Silent As He Fills His Administration With ‘Globalists’

A lot of people remember the confrontation Senator Ted Cruz had a with a Trump supporter during the campaign. At one point Cletus asks Cruz, “Where’s your Goldman Sachs jacket? We know your wife works there!”

It was a shot taken not only at Cruz but also one at Hillary Clinton. After all, it was Trump who said Goldman Sachs had “total control” over her. The hardcore Donald Trump supporters call people such as Speaker Paul Ryan and Senator Marco Rubio, “globalist traitors” and shriek about “globalism” at every turn.

Yet, the silence is deafening now that Donald Trump is filling his cabinet and other administrative posts with these so-called “globalists.”

The best part was watching Trump fans laugh and chortle over Donald Trump not choosing the rich “globalist” Mitt Romney for Secretary of State in favor of Rex Tillerson – they very wealthy CEO of a global oil and gas company.

On the Goldman Sachs front, Trump will have Goldman Sachs Chief Financial Officer Gary Cohn head up Trump’s National Economic Council. Trump’s choice to head the Department of Treasury is Steven Mnuchin, a former Goldman Sach’s partner and Anthony Scaramucci, a former Goldman Sachs banker plays a vital role in Trump’s transition team.

Trump’s choice for Commerce Secretary is Wilbur Ross. A former banker and leveraged buyout specialist, Ross is worth $2.9 billion. He is now a venture capitalist but when he was buying companies he was also doing what Trump railed about – sending jobs to Mexico and China:

Here’s how it worked: In 2004, Ross bought Cone Mills, a North Carolina textile company facing bankruptcy, as Bloomberg detailed in a 2012 write-up. He combined it with another textile company, Burlington Industries, to form International Textile Group. And it was renamed Cone Denim. Bloomberg explained that Ross expanded production “in less-expensive emerging markets” and that he also “eliminate[d] duplicative facilities.”

In other words, layoffs and outsourcing.

Trump shifts immigration plan: No ‘mass deportations’

Trump shifts immigration plan: No 'mass deportations'

BY JESSIE HELLMANN –

 

Presumptive Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump appeared to soften his tone on immigration Saturday, saying he wouldn’t issue mass deportations if he became president.
“President Obama has mass deported vast numbers of people — the most ever, and it’s never reported. I think people are going to find that I have not only the best policies, but I will have the biggest heart of anybody,” Trump said in an interview with Bloomberg Politics Saturday.

Pressed on whether he would issue mass deportations, as he has called for in the past, Trump said, “No, I would not call it mass deportations”. …

…”We are going to get rid of a lot of bad dudes who are here. That I can tell you,” Trump said…

…”We’re going to do it in a very humane fashion. Believe me. I have a bigger heart than you do. We’re going to do it in a very humane fashion,” he said.

Donald J. Trump’s Gangster Capitalism

The self-enriching commander in chief is bringing his children into the family business as he puts the bully in the bully pulpit.

 

Rick Wilson

RICK WILSON

12.09.16 12:03 AM ET

*SOURCE*
[EXCERPTS.]

If you’re wondering if the new normal in American politics includes a president-elect rage-tweeting at companies he dislikes, engaging in near-dailyhissy-fits over media coverage he finds insufficiently obsequious, and engaging in constant social media warfare over slights to his ego, you’d be right. Witness the emerging gangster capitalism of Donald Trump.

No one has felt much genuine shock that Donald Trump refuses to divest his control over his empire in a real, legally binding way. Only a fool would believe Trump would draw a sharp, bright line between his personal and family financial interests and the interests of the nation.Since the election, he’s demonstrated in both word and deed that he intends to fully monetize the presidency to benefit his companies, integrate his children into consequential government decisions, and put the bully in the bully pulpit.

Those things were expected as part of the skeezy, venal radiation Trump gives off when it comes to his business dealings. Like many, I still expect that Trump is going to make Americans aware of the phrase “emoluments clause” like no one else in history…

…For all that, the crony-capitalist (and bogus) Carrier deal and his new war on Boeing should make Washington’s dwindling tribe of conservatives dedicated to economic freedom take notice. This isn’t just the wrong policy direction; it’s a preview of a new, dark economic populism that many warned was coming.

This week’s tweet war against Boeing came just 20 minutes after the aviation giant’s CEO Dennis Muilenburg was quoted expressing mild concern over the impending trade-war disaster Trump has promised. You couldn’t miss the president-elect’s response:

Boeing is building a brand new 747 Air Force One for future presidents, but costs are out of control, more than $4 billion. Cancel order!

=======

In the interests of not normalizing post-truthiness, I must note that Trump’s statement was a lie from top to bottom. Boeing isn’t over-budget on the new AF1 contract, Trump has no idea what he’s talking about, and arguing the point of his tweet misses his intent.

Three weeks after the election, every day is another day of the Theater of Trump, showing the contours of his extraordinary willingness to shatter Republican free-market ideals on the altar of his version of gangster capitalism. It wasn’t that Boeing went to war with Trump, or shipped jobs overseas. It’s that the bizarre, delicate ego of Donald J. Trump was offended by Muilenburg’s oblique worry about the trade war our next president seems determined to launch.

The tweet was one more piece of evidence that the next president isn’t going to even give the free market the time of day; instead, he’s embracing a state-capitalist flavor of populism where the president of the United States directly and personally intervenes in the governance of private businesses. Trump’s new reality show is “You Bet Your Market Cap!” …

…We have a speaker of the House who until Trump was an admitted devotee of Ayn Rand. We have members of the Senate and the House who have railed for not years, or decades, but for generations against crony capitalism, government intervention in markets, excessive regulation, and corporate welfare. Today, they are born-again to the cult of Trumponomics. They were often hypocritical about free markets, but now they’re not even pretending.

This is how the slippery slope looks: Trump blurts out a new attack outrage, and members of Congress with an “R” after their names either agree because he’s got one too, or tacitly allow it to slide. Many of them hope they’ll be dealing with Pence, or some other relatively sane member of his cabinet. They’re looking at Trump as a vector to pass the House agenda, as someone who they can “puppet,” in the words of one member of the House leadership. The moral rot and compromise with Trump’s statist economics are already quite far gone. …

…Some perhaps believe that he’ll be business-as-usual, a transactional politician who plays nicely in the D.C. lobbying ecosystem despite his public bluster. They’re wrong, of course. Trump and Steve Bannon, in particular, see the business class as the enemy. They see corporate CEOs as either peers or foes, and the peers fall under the Machiavellian “enemies closer” rule. Those confident they can buy, flatter, or avoid Trump are playing a game, unlike anything America’s corporate world has seen before.

They’re not reading Trump’s history. Once Trump has “won” a feud (or an election) the normal rules of politics would be to return to the status quo ante. Not Trump. He continues to attack, belittle, and torture his victims long after there’s any political utility to it. It will be the same with his thug populism and attacks on American businesses. The fight won’t be over; capitulation isn’t enough. He demands abject humiliation. (Take a look at the dead eyes of Mitt Romney during this secretary of State charade and tell me he hasn’t suffered enough.) …

…This behavior isn’t without precedent in the hands of authoritarians. In the early days of Vladimir Putin’s reign, a number of billionaire oligarchs like Mikhail Khodorkovsky and Platon Lebedev of the massive Yukos oil concern crossed the Russian strongman. Putin first turned the Russian media and propaganda machine against the men, then the power of the Russian courts, which—handily enough—he controlled. At first, this was greeted as a populist new leader draining the swamp (where have I heard that lately?) and teaching the hated oligarch class a stiff lesson.

It didn’t stop there, though. The already shaky post-Soviet commitment to reducing the terrible power of the state over the lives of its citizens was swiftly forgotten and as Putin’s attacks on his enemies were backed up by a media dedicated to his aggrandizement and protections, many bowed to the inevitable. The reporters, civic activists, and others started to die, disappear, or be imprisoned. Putin’s personal wealth grew as he destroyed his political opponents. His image as a celebrity despot was carefully cultivated and polished. A rigid core of Putin voters loves him as the man who Made Russia Great Again. Sound familiar?

*SOURCE*
[EXCERPTS.]

WASHINGTON (AP) — In the heat of the presidential campaign, Donald Trump [ME: FALSELY] accused primary rival Ted Cruz of being controlled by Goldman Sachs because his wife, Heidi, previously worked for the Wall Street giant. He slammed Hillary Clinton for receiving speaking fees from the bank.

“I know the guys at Goldman Sachs. They have total, total control over him,” Trump said of Cruz. “Just like they have total control over Hillary Clinton.”

Now, Trump is putting Goldman executives at the helm of his administration’s economic team. He’s expected to name bank president Gary Cohn to an influential White House policy post, according to two people informed of the decision, and has already nominated former Goldman executive Steve Mnuchin to lead the Treasury Department.Steve Bannon, Trump’s incoming White House senior adviser, also worked at Goldman before becoming a conservative media executive.

Wall Street executives have long wielded influence in Washington, filling top jobs in both Republican and Democratic administrations. Goldman Sachs itself has produced several Treasury secretaries, White House chiefs of staff and top economic advisers.

But the financial industry’s high-level presence in Trump’s burgeoning administration runs counter to some core campaign messages that energized his supporters.

And Goldman Sachs stocks are up 33 percent since Trump’s election.

DT IS A WELL DOCUMENTED, HABITUAL, PATHOLOGICAL LIAR, FRAUD AND LIBERAL.

Witness from HIS OWN MOUTH:

But there’s only one truly massive liar [that was] in this race: Donald Trump. When Politico attempted to measure how many lies Trump told over the course of 4.6 hours of speeches, they found that he lied, on average, once every five minutes. When Huffington Post catalogued his lies over the course of just one town hall event, they came up with 71 lies.

Which made it relatively easy to come up with this not-even-close-to-complete list of 101 lies from Donald Trump.

Once again, another compilation of News, headlines, videos, and links followed with a summation of “Just what have we learned?” 

 

Certain so-called Conservatives, Alt-Right, and other assorted Fascists, Socialists, Liberals and Marxists in an unusual cabal of political inanity are still saying there is “no evidence of Trump-Russia collusion in the last election”.

These R.I.N.O.s, Alt-Right, and assorted Leftists are tripping and stumbling over mountains of evidence from ALL sources- Conservative, MSM, Liberal, Independent, and even EYE-WITNESSES- to carry the swamp water for a man who is nothing but a New York Liberal, Liar, Con-Man, Fraud, Egomaniac, and Arrogant Blow-Hard, Donnie El Trampo.

Why?

Why do they do it?

Some have been bullied,  senators, reps, pundits…

Others are deluded, many from the aforementioned groups, along with Bernie Sanders and HRC followers who see NO difference on many issues…

And some are willful, in-the-know followers who share DT’s “vision” for America, David Duke, The KKK, White-Nationalists and the Russian Mob…

Putin: It’s Possible Private Russian Hackers Interfered In US Elections

“Modern technologies allow to do that kind of thing …”

*SOURCE*

[EXCERPTS.]

Russian President Vladimir Putin said it was “theoretically possible” that “patriotically minded” private Russian citizens could have taken it upon themselves to interfere in the 2016 U.S. presidential election.

“If they are patriotically minded, they start making their contributions — which are right, from their point of view — to the fight against those who say bad things about Russia,” Putin said Thursday.

The Russian president, however, insisted the Kremlin was not directly involved in any coordinated hacking efforts.

“We’re not doing this on the state level,” Putin said.

U.S. intelligence agencies in January assessed with high confidence that the Russian president personally ordered an influence campaign in 2016 aimed at harming then-Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton.

=====

What Intelligence Agencies Concluded About the Russian Attack on the U.S. Election

The office of the director of national intelligence on Friday released a long-awaited unclassified version of its report for President Obama on what the intelligence agencies said was a multifaceted attempt to influence the 2016 presidential election. The report included only the agencies’ conclusions, not the actual intelligence or technical information on which they were based.

Here are some major findings, with comments by The New York Times. The full report is available here.

A strong statement from three intelligence agencies.

 

• In unequivocal language, the report pins responsibility for the election attack directly on President Vladimir V. Putin of Russia, ruling out the possibility that it was ordered by intelligence officials or simply carried out by Kremlin supporters.

• United States officials believe Mr. Putin wants to damage the image of American democracy to make it less attractive to Russians and their neighbors.

Russia took sides in the U.S. election.

• Notably, the report concludes that Russia sought not only to damage Hillary Clinton, whom it thought likely to win, but actually tried to help elect Donald J. Trump.

• The C.I.A., F.B.I. and N.S.A. agreed on nearly everything in the report, but here we see that the N.S.A. was less certain than the other agencies that Russia was trying to help Mr. Trump.

Putin saw this attack as payback.

• An important insight into Mr. Putin’s thinking: He already blamed the United States for multiple campaigns against Russia, including the release of the Panama Papers, showing offshore accounts hiding the fortunes of some of his closest friends and allies, and the exposure of Russian athletes for doping. For him, this was payback.

• There is no evidence suggesting that the United States government had a role in releasing the Panama Papers, and while American officials complained of Russian doping, there is no basis to suggest that they fabricated evidence of it.

Putin held a grudge against Clinton.

• The election attack was personal, the report concludes: Mr. Putin thought Mrs. Clinton had insulted him and encouraged demonstrations against him in Russia.

Trump’s business background appealed to Putin.

• A new observation: Mr. Putin has enjoyed close relations with some Western leaders who had personal business ties to Russia. The report suggests he may have seen Mr. Trump in a similar light, though the Trump Organization has no major projects in Russia.

The election attack was part of a larger campaign.

• While the intelligence agencies see the leak of hacked materials to influence the election as “unprecedented,” they view it as part of a familiar Russian information strategy using every form of contemporary media to influence public opinion.

The hacking was done by Russian intelligence.

• The report’s most specific finding on hacking tracks with what cybersecurity experts have said: that two different hacking groups attacked Democratic targets, one described here as “Russian intelligence,” the other more specifically as the G.R.U., Russian military intelligence.

• Contrary to expectations, the report says nothing about the forensic analysis or American spying on which the conclusions are based.

The key was not hacking but leaking.

• Here the report accuses the Russian government of going beyond standard cyberespionage, in which hacking is used to get information, to an attack by releasing the information to influence the election.

• As expected, the agencies accuse the G.R.U. of being behind Guccifer 2.0 and DCLeaks.com, two outlets that released hacked emails and documents, and with supplying hacked emails to WikiLeaks, though it does not suggest WikiLeaks editors necessarily knew the source.

Evidence that Russia was happy Trump won.

• The report cites positive Russian news coverage of Mr. Trump’s victory as confirmation that Mr. Putin’s government took sides in the election.

• In the agencies’ view, the Russian government sees Mr. Trump’s victory as one in a series of wins for populist movements championed by Mr. Putin.

This will happen again.

• The report suggests that Mr. Putin believes the combination of hacking and leaks is a low-risk, high-impact way to influence other countries — and that Russia is likely to keep trying the same methods against the United States and other countries.

The Plot Sickens

*SOURCE*

WASHINGTON — In the aftermath of the GOP health care debacle came a revealing act of candor. House Speaker Paul Ryan admitted that his party, which controls the House, Senate and White House, is not yet a “governing party” because it could not “get 216 people to agree with each other on how we do things.”

Since the rise of the tea party, there have been perhaps 30 members of the House — the Freedom Caucus — who have been consistently unwilling to vote for center-right policy because their anti-government convictions are unappeasable. Incited and abetted by conservative media, they made Speaker John Boehner’s life a living hell, and have greeted Ryan with sharpened pitchforks.

So a party at the peak of its political fortunes is utterly paralyzed. A caucus in control of everything is itself uncontrollable.

Heading into the 2016 election, Republicans knew that this problem — the tea party predicament, the Freedom Caucus conundrum, the Boehner bog — had to be dealt with. The GOP needed a large and capable leader who could either unite the whole party (at least temporarily) with a bold, unifying conservative vision, or peel off some centrist Democratic support with innovative policy. They needed an above-average president.

What they got is unimaginably distant from any of these goals. They got a leader who is empty — devoid of even moderately detailed preferences and incapable of using policy details in the course of political persuasion.

Republicans got a leader who is impatient and easily distracted — by cable news on the Russian scandal or by Arnold Schwarzenegger’s TV ratings. The content and consequences of his tweets are bad enough; worse is the disordered personality traits they reveal — vindictiveness, shallowness and lack of discipline. Trump spent a total of 18 days on his health care bill before demanding a vote. And he made no speech to the nation to advance his ideas — as every other recent president would have done.

Republicans got an administration that is incompetent. The White House policy process has been erratic and disorganized. It has failed to provide expert analysis and assistance to Congress and did little to effectively advocate the president’s policy in ways that unite the party.

Republicans got an administration that is morally small. Trump’s proposed budget would require massive cuts in disease research, global development and agricultural programs — just as a famine gathers a hideous strength. The proposed budget practices random acts of gratuitous cruelty.
