Good news re: ACA

Trump ain't gonna kill it off soon, if ever.

His son-in-law has a brother, and the brother has a business based on an app that relies on the ACA just the way it is.


Trump, asking for money before his speech:

via Twitter

Another huge shoe dropped in the money laundering angle.

I have been tracking this from several sources, mostly on Twitter, but this short synopsis is pretty clear.

Sources for the statements are at the link.

Donald Trump cabinet member and business associate co-owned Russian money laundering bank

Deutsche Bank has mysteriously loaned more than a billion dollars to Donald Trump and his business partners over the past few years, at a time when most other banks viewed him as too big a risk. We’ve also reported that Deutsche Bank was busted for laundering Russian money for clients in places like New York, where Trump lives, raising the question of whether its willingness to float loans to Trump was really just a cover for Russia to funnel money to him.

But as it turns out, Deutsche Bank was laundering the money through Bank of Cyprus.
The two most prominent owners of Bank of Cyprus?
One is Donald Trump’s associate Dmitry Rybolovlev.
The other is Donald Trump’s new Secretary of Commerce, Wilbur Ross
That’s the missing link established by Rachel Maddow on her MSNBC show tonight. And suddenly, you realize this is all one larger scandal.

Russia was laundering money into Deutsche Bank, through another bank owned by two Donald Trump associates, at the same time it just happened to be inexplicably loaning large sums of money to Trump even though he was a poor investment risk.
Trump then rewarded one of the go-between bank’s owners by making him the U.S. Secretary of Commerce.
And the other owner of the bank just happens to be the guy who does real estate business with Trump and keeps flying into whatever town Trump visits whenever he’s away from the White House.

Letter from Don Trump Jr to Felix Satter, confirming Twitler's ties to Satter

First the letter, and below it the source from Dworkin on Twitter, who has been doing a lot of digging.


Turns out, Conway is not even housebroken

Trump Hotel in Toronto failed, fraud alleged.

4 days before our election last fall, the Trump hotel in Toronto went bankrupt, like other Trump hotels in the past.

It was backed by Russian money and Trump was in partnership with the developer, Joo Kim Tiah, who is the son of a convicted Malaysian stock fraud billionaire, Tony Tiah.

but wait! That was not the only Trump Hotel to go bankrupt.
4 years previously there was one in Ft. Lauderdale.
And the managing partner on that one was....Felix Sater, the man Trump says he does not know.

There seems to be a pattern of pump and dump in Trump's investments, along with shady characters from Russia to the Near East.
Trump also was involved in the ill fated Trump SoHo hotel-condominium, ( full details here: http://ny.curbed.com/2014/9/17/10046140/trump-soho-heads-to-foreclosure-due-to-unsellable-condos)

Misconduct Complaint Filed Against Reince Priebus For Interfering With FBI Russia Investigation

This was complaint sent to the Wisconsin Office of Lawyer Regulation, he could be disbarred.
Sadly, no charges yet apparent in DC for his attempted obstruction of justice.

A misconduct complaint has been filed against Trump Chief of Staff Reince Priebus with the Wisconsin Office of Lawyer Regulation relating to Priebus interfering with the FBI’s investigations into the Trump/Russia scandal.

The complaint filed by attorney J. Whitfield Larrabee states:

There is probable cause to charge attorney Reince Priebus (“Priebus”) with violations of Wisconsin’s Rules of Professional Conduct for Attorneys, Supreme Court Rules, Chapter 20. The violations of these rules relate to Priebus’ corrupt attempt to influence investigations by the United States Federal Bureau of Investigation (“FBI”) into criminal activity involving associates of Donald J. Trump (“Trump”) and Russian government officials.….

It is a violation of SCR 20:8.4 (b) for a lawyer to “commit a criminal act that reflects adversely on the lawyer’s honesty, trustworthiness or fitness as a lawyer in other respects.” It is a violation of SCR 20:8.4 (c) “to engage in conduct involving dishonesty, fraud, deceit or misrepresentation.” There is probable cause to charge Priebus with such serious violations of these particular ethical requirements that it will be necessary and appropriate to revoke his license to practice of law if the charges are established.

Mr. Larrabee told PoliticusUSA, “I filed the complaint as a concerned citizen and attorney because I was alarmed that Reince Priebus would communicate with the FBI about a pending investigation of the collusion between Trump campaign officials and senior Russian intelligence officials. Communications by Priebus with the FBI about a pending investigation of this sort severely violates the integrity of the investigation and is a blatant form of corruption.”

International scholar visiting Texas A&M "mistakenly detained" by customs officials

A visiting scholar to Texas A&M was detained by customs officials in Houston this week while on his way to speak at a symposium in Aggieland, officials said Friday at the conference.
Henry Rousso was flying in from Paris to participate in the Hagler Institute Symposium when he was “mistakenly detained” Wednesday evening upon his arrival, according to Richard Golsan, director of the Melbern G. Glasscock Center for Humanities Research at Texas A&M.
“When he called me with this news two nights ago, he was waiting for customs officials to send him back to Paris as an illegal alien on the first flight out,” said Golsan during his introduction to the session which Rousso was set to participate in.

His work centers on the history and memory of traumatic pasts, France in WWII and the post-war period, his profile on the CNRS website says.
Rousso's current study involves the relationship between history, memory and justice.

His "crime" ???
He was born an Egyptian.

Donald Trump made it clear he has no intention of representing Americans who did not vote for him

This week in the nation’s capital, Donald Trump addressed the 2017 Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) and espoused a notably non-inclusive form of nationalism.

And now people are starting to develop a little warm heart, but the people that you’re watching, they’re not you. They’re, largely, many of them, on the side that lost. You know, they lost the election. It’s like, how many elections do we have to have? They lost the election.

“They’re not you. They’re the side that lost.” With those words, Trump indicated that, just as he sees independent media as “fake news,” he apparently sees all dissenting Americans as unworthy of attention. Sitting presidents historically work to be at least rhetorically inclusive of citizens who did not vote for them; Trump appears to feel no obligation even to consider their interests, much less represent them.
He further stated, “The forgotten men and women will be forgotten no longer. That is the future of the Republican Party.” This coded language implies a pointed contrast with the Democratic Party’s commitment to diversity and inclusion, often seen by conservatives as a focus on people of color at the expense of white Americans, and derisively referred to as “identity politics.”


A chairmen of the Senate & House Intel.Comm. called press to deny RussiaGate stories.

White House asked key officials to deny reports of Russian contacts after FBI refused

WASHINGTON - The Trump administration has enlisted senior members of the intelligence community and Congress in efforts to counter news stories about Trump associates' ties to Russia, a politically charged issue that has been under investigation by the FBI as well as lawmakers now defending the White House.

Acting at the behest of the White House, the officials made calls to news organizations last week in attempts to challenge stories about alleged contacts between members of President Donald Trump's campaign team and Russian intelligence operatives, U.S. officials said.

The effort also involved senior lawmakers with access to classified intelligence about Russia, including Sen. Richard Burr, R-N.C.,
and Rep. Devin Nunes, R-Calif., the chairmen of the Senate and House intelligence committees.
A spokesman for Nunes said that he had already begun speaking to reporters to challenge the story and then "at the request of a White House communications aide, Chairman Nunes then spoke to an additional reporter and delivered the same message."

Unlike the others, Nunes spoke on the record and was subsequently quoted in the Wall Street Journal.

The Chairman of the Intelligence Comm. has already decided there is nothing to the story, AND is publicly supporting Trump's version
before the Comm. has even investigated it!!!

My feeling, based on a lot of reports I have been reading this past week, is Trump is covering how much he is indebted
to Russian money laundering, since the 1990's.
He is REALLY scared of what is being discovered, and damn if the Congress is gonna give him a free ride to cover it up.
