Steve Scalise is an absolute POS

Watching him on C-SPAN trying to claim that a 5 billion wall is necessary, using a few cited cases of hispanics with "no remorse" who murdered US Citizens as justification for 5 billion dollars. Hell I'm sure it will be more like 100 billion, especially after they finish paying Oleg Deripaska for his steel. And after Individual 1 skims his share right off the top.

So what about the tens of thousands killed by non-hispanics in this country? Do we build a wall around every white gun owner in the U.S?

Yesterday I watched this same POS talk over the intelligent questions by a CNN commentator, not giving a chance for reasonable questions to be asked or answered, crying on national television about the few who have been killed by Spanish people who crossed the border. But I suppose when white guys kill dozens at a time here, as long as they are white he's just fine with that. Even when he is a victim of another white guy.

I'm just as pissed off at CNN for 1) Allowing him to lie, cry and carry on, on national TV and 2) Having him on in the first place knowing all he will do is lie. It's just for sensationalism.

Whites killing fellow citizens by the thousands is good. People of color killing a few white people is bad. That's the message.

New Clues Emerge About The Mystery Mueller Grand Jury Case

Since an appeals court decision on Tuesday offered a few hints about the grand jury case believed to be linked to special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation, independent reports on Tuesday night and Wednesday offered additional clues about the unnamed international company fighting a subpoena.

The Washington Post reported Tuesday that the company is a “foreign financial institution.” CNN followed with a story Wednesday reporting that law firm Alston & Bird, which has represented Russian oligarchs and entities in the past, is involved in the case.

These reports came after the Supreme Court on Tuesday declined to overturn an appellate ruling in the matter that ordered the firm — which is owned by an unknown foreign government — to comply with the subpoena and pay a fine at the rate of $50,000 per day of noncompliance.

Following the Supreme Court’s move, the appeals court made its opinion upholding the subpoena public. The document revealed that the subpoena was served to the U.S. office of a foreign company and that prosecutors alleged the company did “considerable business” in the U.S.

The law firm linked to the case by CNN, Alston & Bird, has lobbied on behalf of Russian oligarch and alleged Manafort paymaster Oleg Deripaska, and took hundreds of thousands of dollars from him for visa work. The firm also represented global PR company Ketchum Inc., which hired Alston & Bird to “provide advisory services to Ketchum, Inc. for the Russian Federation,” CNN reported. Ketchum released the Russian government as a client in 2015, amid controversy over its work for Moscow.

Oleg Deripaska, who owns a steel and aluminum company that just had their sanctions lifted by Steve Mnuchin. Deripaska, the Russian billionaire who is a key ally of Russian President Vladi­mir Putin and a longtime business associate of Paul Manafort. Deripaska, who is Kellyanne Conway's next door neighbor.
