The constitution is safe. Our country will have a border wall to keep the filthy drug mules and their shitty welfare sucking criminal anchor offspring out. We will defund bullshit special interests. Purge the Marxism from the colleges, break up the (possibly pedophilic) democrat mafia squatting in DC, restore journalistic ethics to our press and become a non-service based economy again. Small businesses and innovation will boom in the next four years. The truth will ring long, sharp and free.

A golden age is before us folks.

Let's talk post-game salt. I think Trump was hitting the close states that we were talking about in the /dmz/, among others, right up to Election Day. How much was Clinton rallying by contrast? She had a lot of people including Obama and Obama's wife, Biden, other politicians, and even celebrities rallying on her behalf, but I'm under the impression that was without her actually showing up to said rallies.

Currently there's a lot of bullshit being spread about the markets crashing when there was the historic opposite on the Dow. That still doesn't mean anything, though. We've never come out of the circa '08 recession and the Reserve is likely going to raise its interest rates again now that the election is over.

She is the first woman in US history to command a presidential campaign, and win.
Can Kellyanne Conway Save Trump From Himself?
August 22, 2016, 6:00 AM EDT

In January 2013, dismayed and defeated after Barack Obama had won his second term and Democrats had maintained the Senate, House Republicans–intact, but fraying–gathered at the Kingsmill Resort near historic Williamsburg. A GOP pollster familiar to many of them rose and addressed her mostly male audience. Stop, she urged them, talking about rape.

It’s a “four-letter word,” pollster Kellyanne Conway said, according to reports from the time.

It wasn’t that Conway wanted the party to change its position on abortion. But as an adviser to Rep. Todd Akin (R-MO) in his Senate race she had seen first-hand how he had derailed the entire party with his "legitimate rape" comments, and Conway was determined to get Republican men to think about the way they talked.

Now she may be doing it again as the female political pro closest to Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump, a candidate who has built a reputation as being almost impossible to get through to.

Trump was a force of nature, for every 1 Hillary rally Trump averaged 3 or 4 during peak season. There were entire periods of time Hillary was on hiatus and Trump was out there knocking out 3+ rallies a day.

It's a problem when you have a bought and paid for biased media. Hillary got complacent, thought it was in the bag, the polling was skewed, sure but she rested on her laurels and failed to see the threat. The 3rd debate and his performance in the primary should have been an indicator

Sort of. Gore actually asked Clinton NOT to campaign for him, which is the only reason it didn't happen (bad move by Gore, obviously). Other presidents were less blatant about it, by which I mean they were all "hey I just HAPPEN to be in BATTLEGROUND STATE, talking about KEY CAMPAIGN ISSUE OF MY PREFERRED CANDIDATE, but I didn't mention him by name so it doesn't count."

Anyway I don't see how the Constitution is safe in the hands of a pres who shows absolutely no understanding of it and a VP who wants to amend it to rid certain people of rights but at this point I'm pretty convinced the Constitution itself is basically just a meme for /pol/ people, it's whatever they want it to be.

It was never technically our tax money

Him not paying taxes? It's called a call-back loss, it's good for something like 10+ years (only up to the total tax deducted) and it exists because if a company rapidly devalues they can "call" in their overpaid taxes.

Accounting 101 - literally

When your businesses lose 1 billion dollars in a particularly bad year the government is now holding tax money for capitol that isn't there. Why is it allowed? Because businesses like this have been paying millions to the government for years.

>but money always goes somewhere! Someone profited off of Trumps loss!
And they got fucking taxed for their gains. Without Callback loss you are talking about money being taxed twice - when you earn it and when you lose it

TLDR Trump called back his losses and stretched that shit as far as he could, filling in the gap with tax writeoffs including charitable donations.

This kind of blatant ignorance is indicative of the new left, and is a problem with the US as a whole, most of this fucking country including the news media is literally too fucking stupid to understand Accounting basics

I'm not even defending the guy in this case other than it's smart as fuck. I would game the system as far as I could and so would you.

It'll be 10x worse for you if Trump is excellent and we take supermajority in the house and senate. Constitutional Amendment tier, goodbye womens suffrage.
The democratic party fucked up leaping to the far left, it has to change back to center left fast and start dumping unwinnable issues like gun control because it's a very real possibility Trump is going to do alot of what he promises and be considered the new populist reagan within 2 years. Meaning after 2 terms we follow up with another 2 term republican. A black conservative woman - because white girls are absolutely fucking worthless.
>> No. 114237 ID: d0041a
to expand further a callback loss can refer to all of these writeoffs

Net Operating Loss Deduction - particularly of benefit to proprietorships and LLC's

>If the business loss exceeds your total income for the year, any unused portion of the loss can be used to offset income and reduce taxes in another year(s).

just thinking about the night of the election and it was kind of off how unprepared to celebrate they were, like they were prepared to lose. trump owned atalantic city and part of las vegas, that should have been the biggest party in the universe, but they didn't even have confetti. i think trump was the most surprised person in the room, he didn't have any kind of prepared remarks (not unusual for him), but i bet he knew what he was going to to say when he lost.
and it kind of leads me to believe what i've always thought about trump, that he is an agent of the left sent to disrupt and embarrass republicans.
>> No. 114243 ID: a569d7
>The democratic party fucked up leaping to the far left

Really? Because it actually looks like the DNC fucked up going for the center and trying to get Republican votes in what turned out to be a change election. I'm not saying Bernie could have won but Clinton's far from far left, if she was she might have kept the new Bernie voters and done better in a couple of states.

I think that's your problem. You think anything that isn't a far right republican is far left. Words mean things. You don't have to pretend someone is far left to disagree with them.

>A black conservative woman - because white girls are absolutely fucking worthless.

Actually... it would be great if you ran a black woman--or any woman of color, really. Unfortunately the Republicans chase away a lot of people who'd otherwise be comfortable in the party. There are a lot of economic conservatives who agree with you on that stuff, but they watch shit like what happened to Tammy Duckworth and... yeah.

It's foolish. The old Democrat racists have mostly died or retired/are retiring but the GOP ones are going to still be around for awhile. Younger Republicans seem better on this but they won't be in control for a few more years.

A minister of social security of Sweden, Swedish woman named Annika Strandhäll is deeply disappointed in the voting rights of American men after the Trump vote.

Annika Strandhäll says that this kind of voting results makes it very questionable that men in USA should even have rights to vote.

Maybe it is time to reconsider letting the men in USA to vote, she written on twitter.

However her comments invoked a response:
“This is a Swedish minister saying these things. But think if some white man would say this kind of thing about womens rights to vote or minorities rights to vote. It would cause enrage.”, was written by Twitter user, a black man who is no doubt very intelligent and perceptive.

Globalist Multiculturalism and the multicultural state as an idea and an implementation is in decline and will come to an end. In many places it will be a violent end.

It's the 26 year old cutoff provision and the cannot deny for pre-existing condition clause, calm down

Nothing. But the US is a little beyond that.
The best path and the path of least resistance for the US is a mono-cultural multi-ethnic equitable society.
Note I make the distinction between equality and equity. Total cultural assimilation, strict standards on who we let in, parasitic idealogies not to be tolerated.
Europe however will need to return to mono ethnic states, and there will likely be extreme levels of violence. You cannot flood a society with immigrants with an incendiary cultic idealogy that seeks destruction of other cultures, you cannot open the flood gates, make them instant wards of the state and expect them to integrate and assimilate. On the contrary they will take advantage and subvert.
They will come to the point that there will be no option but to remove them or die. In this you can expect several nations to do just that, such as Sweden.

You cannot bring an ethnic group in at replacement numbers, regardless of race or similarity to your culture. You certainly cannot bring one in that seeks the destruction of your culture de facto and expect to keep them docile with transfer payments, and bread and circuses.

Your identity isn't just your race or heritage, it's your culture and the civilization formed around that culture. It's in the achievements and the works and physical, idealogical and philosophical manifestations; it's the past and the hope for the future

The multiculti fucks, the progressives, the cultural marxists, the indroctinators, the charlatans and the degenerates: They dont give a fuck about your skin color, they'll either seek to exploit it or use it for divisiveness. They dont give a shit if you are white.
Their only goal is to destroy your culture, our culture and our civilization and replace it with party authoritarianism or worse.

It's not - it wouldn't be mono-ethnic. I'm implying that societies have a range of choices at the crossroads at the end of multiculturalism and one of them is a segregationist/
apartheid state

The libertarian party, outside of Cato, is a fucking joke. Their primary process should have been a clear indicator. The greens are no better

Not only did they pick a dumbass, they failed to get 5% of the vote when it was ripe for the taking. They should have just nominated Ross Perot or the anti-virus guy.

If you're the one that I was replying to;

>We can either have monocultural multi-ethnic societies that are equitable, or we can throw it all up in the air and end up with monoethnic societies, or worse - an apartheid state.

Here supposedly the proggression of severity goes from monoethnic to apartheid. An apartheid state requires specific circumstances, which probably can't really happen in a monoethnic society. In this case the only way it could proggress, is from the so vaunted multicultural one.
What is presented as the only real option is a moncultural multiethnic society, OK why? Why not monocultural monoethnic?

And when USSR collapsed, suddenly the politicians needed a new fake-noble thing to talk about, which was multiculturalism.
1990s is around the time Europe started collapsing as a society.
So... great example.

>America didn't allow non-European immigrants in any numbers until Obama.
What in the fuck are you smoking? Even arbitrarily discounting blacks and Chinese, that still leaves us large numbers of Filipinos, Arabs, Vietnamese, Indians, and the massive amount of Mexicans that have legally naturalized pre-Obama. America has never been monocultural. Never. Never ever ever ever ever. The German speaking settlers didn't feel like they were the same as the Irishmen and Italians when they first got here. Our culture has always been in flux, has always been made of the pieces of different cultures, it's never been harmonious, and each wave of immigrants starts feeling like "us" just in time to sneer at the new "them."

First of all, why not? Second, the Mediterranean has been that way long before such a thing as a "Turk" existed.

>Han are 99%.
91.5%, but point taken.

And as to the main point, the current state of Europe, I'd say it's an attempt at mono-culturalism, not multi-culturalism, that has led to their current state of affairs. They decided to come together, put aside all of their glaring incompatibilities, and become one great big Eurozone. A few recent migrants, no matter how rapacious, aren't the ones crashing the European supereconomy.

Duh. Invasion is how most multicultural societies have happened in history from the Roman Republic to the Crusader Kingdoms to the good ol' USofA. Would you deny that Al-Andalus was a multicultural society? I'm not touting it as positive or negative; it's just reality. Has been for millennia. Even people used to thinking of themselves as one culture are amalgamations of old blood lines. The Englishman railing against these damned immigrants is himself a hybrid of Angle, Saxon, and Norman (a historical hybrid of Viking and Frank(a historical hybrid of Gaul and Roman (don't get me fucking started on the Romans!))).

A better example of the US pre modern multiculturalism is that of a unicultural state - The US absorbed European (and only European) culture and tradition (hence burgers) while at the same time assimilating varying European cultures into a dominant American culture which was essentially a pan-European culture.
It's the reason why the united states, with a 60% - 70% Germanic white population, can go fight 2 wars against Germany/Austria within 25 years of each other when the majority of it Germanic population was barely 2 generations Americanized.

That couldn't happen today, in our multicultural state, if we had to firebomb Mexico city into dust how would the Mexican diaspora in the US respond?

While there have been people coming in before (Eisenhower kicked out several million illegals) most of the damage was done from the 70's on, particularly in the Reagan era with Amnesty

Well, it really depends on why you were firebombing Mexico City. A lot of the Arab American community was angry about our being idiots in the Middle East but there wasn't a shitstorm over it. You're also talking about a weird situation--in what scenario do we actually have to firebomb Mexico City?

But as to your glowing description of the plight of Germans during WWI: no, shit was actually horrible for them.

See, the German diaspora looks kind of like the Mexican diaspora here in terms of the culture still being important to them. There were a lot of German-American organizations where the dominant language was German. Kids were sent to German-language summer schools, and may have gone to actual German-language schools and churches during the year. There was a lot of German cultural activity--clubs, plays, concerts--conducted in German. German was the most spoken language in the US besides Spanish (keeping in mind we'd conquered parts of Mexico including a bunch of Spanish speakers). Germans were some of the most patriotic people in the US without losing their culture.

>everything changed when jingoism attacked

WWI brought an onslaught of social pressure and hate upon Germans. I'm talking calling sauerkraut "liberty cabbage," burning German books, ending German classes, even incidents of dachshunds being kicked because they were German dogs. Many were forced to buy war bonds. The Red Cross wouldn't allow people with German last names to join. A couple people were lynched. A lot of German families ended up changing their last names. A lot of those German organizations were closed down permanently for fear of being seen as traitors. That never came back. So yeah, the German Americans got on board... at the cost of German American culture.

We fucked around (hard) in two countries in the middle east - How many Afghanis and Iraqis reside in the US as opposed to the greater Arab/Muslim-american population which includes Lebanese, Turkics, Saudis/Yemenis/Omani's/UAE's/Pakistanis/etc
Compare it to the Mexican diaspora in the US - if we had to go to war with Mexico, which is possible with it's destabilized nature and with the amount of Mexican citizens in the US how abundant and how much of a threat would a possible Mexican 5th column be?
There are tens of millions more Mexicans than there are Iraqi and Afghani's in the US.

Yes bad shit happened around the WW1 period, some of that cane be blamed on the propagandistic nature of the Wilson administration. Most germanic americans fled from bad times Germany/Prussia/Austria/Switzerland.
That said Germanic influence has been a close second to Anglo/Irish influence on American culture in our modern times - look at how much Germanics have shaped our culinary habits, our education system, and even our mannerisms. - Hell our current President Elect is of strong German heritage

My point is the US has always been able to assimilate foreign cultures and peoples into it's own uni-culture for the most part regardless of ethnicities. My problem with modern multiculturalism is that it foregoes these attributes. No American has a problem with tacos or latina QT's but it's not too much to ask that we can be inclusive without being overtly tolerant in the strictest sense - we take what we like and abandon the rest.
I'll also point out that identity politics are detrimental to society as a whole and only serve to propagate division and strife in a society we all yearn to perfect.
I don't need white ethno-nationalism or ethno-centrism but in the same token I cannot logically rebuke it and tolerate black/Latino/etc ethnocentric movements - and this is where identity politics comes into play. The more identity politics are pushed the more divided we are as a nation. The same can be said of radical feminism - why allow a whole gender to push for supremacy when equity is something we should be striving towards?
Hell identity politics demonizes the European without aknowledging the fact that the European and Asian races pulled the rest of the human race out of the muck of tribalism. That's not even racial superiority it's objective fact - Europeans and Asians gifted modern civilization to the rest of the world, though while not without bloodshed in many respects, uplifting the human race is no small feat

But who am I kidding the damage is already done, logic has gone out the window, there needs to be a restoration of sanity on both sides but particularly the left - I personally do not want to propagate or see a return of Tribalism - Racial or otherwise, but it seems like identity politics tries to achieve just that

To the people made about Donnie changing his mind, we told you so. I know for certain I and several other people here have for months, maybe years been pointing out Trump is all over the map when it comes to political beliefs, that not too long ago he was a true blue New Yorkistan liberal and besties with Hitlery, that when running he acted like a populist and did whatever was popular with voters he was trying to court.

Now he's doing the same thing with general Americans. Most general Americans probably don't care about prosecuting Hillary, either because they just don't care or they believe that media when they said Hillary dindo nuffin, it was all Russian hackers paid for by Trump who created the emails that showed she did shady shit and deleted all the thousands of emails that would have totally showed her innocence.

Same with shit like the Mudslime ban, Da Wall to keep the Brown Walkers out, and killing Obamneycare. Hopefully he doesn't walk back on other promises like protecting gun rights and looking at some of our trade treaties.

Trump is a whore willing to do what you want the way you want it so long as it makes him popular. Hillary is willing to do whatever she wants and damn the rules.

Trump is more liable to protect rights as a long as they are popular. Gun rights are popular right now so he's going to probably protect them. So are gay rights so strangely probably making Trumpster closer to a perfect candidate for me as I'm all about rights even if they don't effect me.

I disagree. The point of keeping the election out of Hitlery's hand was to stop the shit she believed in from coming to pass, to stop her fast and loose method of keeping secrets, and to stop her brand of ideological idiocy. Her personally should not matter.

I don't like her, I don't like Trump. I didn't vote for the former, I did the latter probably. I don't think Obama is a bad person, seems like a nice enough guy to have a beer with if I drunk beer but I didn't vote for him because of his policies, because of the fact he was a spineless leader who anything he tried seemed to result in fail. I don't like Romney and I didn't vote for him because his policies were more or less the same as Obama despite what he said.

Just because someone is a terrible person doesn't automatically make them a bad leader. Hillary Clinton though is a bad leader, having her in office might not be apocalyptic like some predicted about Trump, about Obama, about Romney, about McCain, about Bush, and probably not about Gore because nobody gave a shit enough to quake in their boots but it would still be objectively worse then having Trump.

If she wasn't such an anti-gun zealot, if she wasn't such a email printing secrets losing corrupt career politician, if she wasn't willing to fuck over enemies and allies in her quest to the top, if she displayed even a smidgen of common sense, decency, and leadership I'd maybe have voted for her regardless of my personal feelings of her.

Trump isn't really any better but he ain't a zealot, he is a New York liberal but is atleast aware that there is more to the country then them there big ol cities with them porta-potties with the phones in em, is enough of a whore to atleast maybe possibly follow the will of the people, and doesn't seem to be the type to throw friends under the bus unless they really piss him off Chris Christie style.

The shit she believes in, her handling of secrets and the law and her ideology is her personally/personality.

My point is the goal is to stop those things, doesn't matter who its coming from. If it was Trump, Obama, Desmond Tutu, or non-crip Roosevelt advocating for those things we should be against them, regardless of our feelings on the person. If they were pro the shit we are pro for we should be against them even if we don't like them personally.

I don't like Trump personally except compared to people like Rosie O Donnel or Clinton but I think he is a superior possibility to Clinton because the beliefs he says he believes more line with my own. I'd never want to sit down and have a cold one with him, discuss how Star Wars Episode 7 was shitty, or become pen pals. He seems like a total asshole, he does not seem like a nice person. But he (allegedly) supports positions I support hence I'd support him.

>I have no idea how you can disassociate a person from their acts and seperate the two

Because ones actions and beliefs are separate from personality. The reason Obama can be a shitty President while still seeming like an okay guy, his actions and ideology is crap but his personality isn't terrible. I don't hate Obama (HERESY) but I hate his policies.

Clinton has a relatively shallow personality, mostly what you see is what you get but she still has a personality that is separate from her policies. A terrible personality. Even removing the corruption, the hatred of rights, the willingness to fuck over people and everything you'd still be left with a terrible, angry, spoiled person that is not a nice person, even if she was the greatest most rights loving transparent candidate she'd not be a nice person.

Clinton personally is terrible. It just so happens so are her policies. I think rejecting the policies is more important then rejecting the person.

Not sure if this thread's a circlejerk and I'm in no hurry to confirm or disconfirm.

Just got an e-mail:


Donald Trump has just named his pick for Treasury secretary: ex-Goldman Sachs banker and notorious foreclosure king Steve Mnuchin.

That's right. The guy who ran for office promising to "drain the swamp" is putting the living embodiment of Wall Street corruption in charge of his economic policy.

This pick basically translates to Trump giving the middle finger to his working-class voters.


Mnuchin was Trump’s top fundraiser, and his record is so corrupt, it's unbelievable, even for Trump. Check it out:

During the depths of the mortgage meltdown, his company OneWest foreclosed on 36,000 homes, including those of elderly retirees, using robo-signing to turn the company into a "foreclosure machine" while pocketing billions in bailout money.1

He swindled $50 million out of a media company he ran by resigning two months before the company filed for bankruptcy and using his connections to get preferential payouts.2

He made $3.2 million in the Bernie Madoff Ponzi scheme, and avoided having to pay back the victims because his army of lawyers convinced a judge that too much time had passed before he got caught.3

He's donated more than $120,000 dollars to politicians in both political parties to gain access and influence.4
This nomination is the clearest evidence yet that Trump conned the working-class voters who supported him. And if Senate Democrats don't fight this nomination, it will only confirm the voter's belief that both sides are equally corrupt.

>Russia sought an apology from Fox News on Monday after the program host Bill O’Reilly described President Vladimir V. Putin as “a killer” during an interview with President Trump.

>The Kremlin’s spokesman, Dmitri S. Peskov, told reporters that the description was “unacceptable, insulting,” according to the state-run news agencies RIA Novosti and Interfax.

>“We consider such words from a Fox News correspondent to be unacceptable, insulting,” he said. “Of course, we would prefer to receive apologies to our president from such a respectable television network.”

>Mr. O’Reilly: “Do you? Why?”

>Mr. Trump: “Well, I respect a lot of people, but that doesn’t mean I’m going to get along with them. He’s a leader of his country. I say it’s better to get along with Russia than not. And if Russia helps us in the fight against ISIS — which is a major fight — and Islamic terrorism all over the world — major fight — that’s a good thing. Will I get along with him? I have no idea. It’s very possible that I won’t.”

He's probably convinced the reduction only happened because he's such a great negotiator.

Dumpf is gonna protect America's Borders by cutting the fuck out of the Coast Guard, the only branch of the US military that actively protects and serves American citizens.

>While U.S. President Donald Trump on Thursday touted a dramatic buildup of the U.S. military aboard the Navy’s newest carrier, the USS Gerald Ford, his government quietly unveiled plans to gut the the U.S. Coast Guard.

>The Office of Management and Budget is targeting roughly 10 percent budget cuts for the tiny and always cash-strapped military branch. One Republican lawmaker now warns those cuts could cripple the under-resourced and overstretched Coast Guard’s efforts to protect 95,000 miles of American coastline and U.S. interests abroad, playing an especially big role in interdicting drug smugglers.

>Rep. Duncan Hunter (R-Calif.), member of the House Armed Services Committee, railed at Trump’s budget plans.

>“It’s nonsensical to pursue a policy of rebuilding the Armed Forces while proposing large reductions to the U.S. Coast Guard budget,” he wrote in a letter to the president Thursday. Cutting the Coast Guard’s budget would “serve to the detriment of U.S. national security and create exposures that will most certainly be exploited by transnational criminal networks and other dangerous actors,” he wrote.

>The $1.3 billion cut to the U.S. Coast Guard in fiscal year 2018 includes a directive to scrap the building of a $500 million ship, the newest National Security Cutter (NSC).

>There’s just one problem: The ship’s production is already underway. Shipbuilding company Huntington Ingalls announced it would build the latest cutter, the Coast Guard’s ninth, on Dec. 30. And now it, and its shipbuilding yard in Pascagoula, Mississippi, are adrift as the OMB directive came without warning.

>> No. 115748 ID: cce514
Wrong again Ivan. From it's creation the Revenue Cutter Service actively patrolled and boarded ships, hunted smugglers and slavers, and engaged pirates along America's coastlines.

And the Coast Guard was created when the Life-Saving Service was merged with the Revenue Cutter Service, (the former having previously been a separate branch of the Revenue Service) and not because we needed a "second navy." Which is itself incredibly silly because the Coast Guard is not equipped like a proper navy. They only did real ASW training for like 10-12 years in the 80s and stuck some Harpoon launchers on a cutter because Reagan wanted a 300 ship fleet.

Trump's hotel in Baku is connected to the Iranian Revolutionary Guard.

>Conflicts of interest have been a permanent fixture of Donald Trump’s campaign and presidency. But a new report from the New Yorker shines a damning spotlight on one of Trump’s most ethically hazy deals, and one that may leave the Trump Organization open to federal prosecution: The Trump Organization’s work to build and manage a hotel in Azerbaijan in partnership with corrupt oligarchs, themselves apparently linked to individuals tight with the Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps.

>To build the Trump International Hotel & Tower Baku — a project conceived in 2008, and nearly finished, but never opened to the public — the Trump Organization worked with the family of Azerbaijan’s transportation minister and a powerful oligarch, Ziya Mammadov. The project has plenty of problems — it’s in the wrong part of town, and can’t compete with existing high-end hotels there — but seems likely to have fallen prey to the notoriously lax local ethics for business dealings.

>Adam Davidson describes in great detail in his investigative report how Mammadov was known as “notoriously corrupt even for Azerbaijan,” in a U.S. diplomatic cable leaked by WikiLeaks years ago. He and his family also have close ties to a prominent Iranian business family, the Darvishis, whose members headed Revolutionary Guard-controlled firms that the U.S. government accused of sponsoring terrorism abroad and engaging in illicit activity including drug trafficking and money laundering.

>With the Baku hotel deal, the Trump Organization may have violated federal corruption laws, including the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA), the New Yorker notes. The heart of the problem seems to be little due diligence before Trump jumped into the project, even though the country is known for being corrupt, his partners were billionaires on a $12,000-a-year-government salary, and corrupt practices were so commonly talked about they litter the State Department cables released by WikiLeaks and featured prominently in a 2014 Foreign Policy piece, “The Corleones of the Caspian.”

>“The entire Baku deal is a giant red flag — the direct involvement of foreign government officials and their relatives in Azerbaijan with ties to the Iranian Revolutionary Guard. Corruption warning signs are rarely more obvious,” Jessica Tillipman, an FCPA expert and assistant dean at George Washington University Law School, told the New Yorker.

>“The Trump Organization’s Baku project shows the lack of ‘extreme vetting’ Mr. Trump applied to his own business dealings in corruption-plagued regimes around the globe…. Congress — and the Trump Administration itself — has a duty to examine whether the President or his family is exposed to terrorist financing, sanctions, money laundering, and other imprudent associations through their business holdings and connections,” Sen. Sherrod Brown (D-Ohio) said in an email to New Yorker.

The New Yorker article notes that the hotel was basically built in the middle of a slum.

>A former top official in Azerbaijan’s Ministry of Tourism says that, when he learned of the Trump hotel project, he asked himself, “Why would someone put a luxury hotel there? Nobody who can afford to stay there would want to be in that neighborhood.”

Shanahan would serve as the deputy to Defense Secretary James Mattis, a retired Marine general, if confirmed by the Senate. He’d also have to pledge to recuse himself from issues involving Boeing for two years, according to Trump administration policies.

Michel "I didn't take any money from Russia" Flynn revealed to have received $33,750 from Russia Today.

>RT, the Russian state-owned television network described by U.S. intelligence officials as “the Kremlin’s principal international propaganda outlet,” paid $45,386 for former Defense Intelligence Agency Director Michael Flynn to fly to Moscow to speak at its 10th anniversary celebration in December 2015, according to documents newly obtained by a congressional committee and provided to Yahoo News.

>At the Russian government’s expense, Flynn — who was fired last month as President Trump’s national security adviser — was accompanied by his son, Michael Flynn Jr., on the three-day, all-expenses-paid trip, where they both stayed at the five-star Hotel Metropol in Moscow next to Red Square, according to documents obtained from Flynn’s speakers’ bureau, Leading Authorities.

>The agency took a 25 percent commission, leaving $33,750 for Flynn. The Moscow booking was one of three speaking engagements the ex-DIA chief received from Russian interests after being fired from his Pentagon post in 2014 and before joining the Trump campaign as its principal national security adviser, the documents turned over to the committee show.

>Questions about Flynn’s 2015 appearance in Moscow first arose last July during an interview at the Republican National Convention in Cleveland, when Yahoo News pressed him on who paid for the trip.

>“I didn’t take any money from Russia, if that’s what you’re asking me,” Flynn said at first. Then when asked who did him pay him, Flynn replied: “My speakers’ bureau — ask them.”

So he didn't take money from Russia, not to his knowledge at least.

Besides this doesn't make him a spy, unless you're suggesting he sold the country out for what, 30k? Is the flight costs and hotel fees counted in that?

Oh also

>The FBI has information that indicates associates of President Donald Trump communicated with suspected Russian operatives to possibly coordinate the release of information damaging to Hillary Clinton's campaign, US officials told CNN.

>This is partly what FBI Director James Comey was referring to when he made a bombshell announcement Monday before Congress that the FBI is investigating the Trump campaign's ties to Russia, according to one source.

>The FBI is now reviewing that information, which includes human intelligence, travel, business and phone records and accounts of in-person meetings, according to those U.S. officials. The information is raising the suspicions of FBI counterintelligence investigators that the coordination may have taken place, though officials cautioned that the information was not conclusive and that the investigation is ongoing.

>One law enforcement official said the information in hand suggests "people connected to the campaign were in contact and it appeared they were giving the thumbs up to release information when it was ready."

This kindergarten level inanity is the last resort of a hopeless man. Enjoy the next 18 years.

>unnamed sources
Wew lad and these unnamed sources are breaking the law apparently, because they're releasing information regarding an ONGOING INVESTIGATION.

Oh btw?
>phone records
Didn't CNN and FBI deny that wiretapping of Trump took place? And CNN is now claiming that FBI wiretapping of Trump is proving his collusion with Russia?

Fucking pick a lie already and stick to it, you can't shout multiple contradictory lies at people and expect to be taken seriously.

You don't use wiretaps to get phone records.

It's been revealed that Flynn was also plotting with the Turks too.
>Former CIA Director James Woolsey said that he attended a secret meeting in September with ousted Trump national security adviser Adm. Mike Flynn to plan a covert operation to “whisk away” a fugitive cleric and hand him over to Turkey’s authoritarian government.

>The Wall Street Journal reported Friday that Woolsey and other people present at the meeting confirmed that Flynn was coordinating with officials from the cabinet of right-wing Turkish Pres. Recep Tayyip Erdogan in anticipation of extraditing Fethullah Gulen back to Turkey should Trump win the presidency.

>The “dead of night” operation was intended to circumvent normal U.S. extradition laws, Woolsey said. The meeting took place on Sep. 19, and Woolsey said he arrived late only to be startled and alarmed that the discussion was treading into potentially illegal territory.

>The plan, according to Woolsey, was “a covert step in the dead of night to whisk this guy away.” Gulen is wanted in Turkey for allegedly aiding last summer’s failed military coup against the Erdogan regime.

>“It isn’t known who raised the idea or what Mr. Flynn concluded about it,” said the Journal.

Russian foreign ministry is upset that people won't stop leaking stuff about their agents in the White House.


>Also, I would like to say that if the practice of leaking information that concerns not just the United States but also Russia, which has become a tradition in Washington in the past few years, continues, there will come a day when the media will publish leaks about the things that Washington asked us to keep secret, for example, things that happened during President Obama’s terms in office. Believe me, this could be very interesting information.

>Our American colleagues must decide if they respect the diplomatic procedure, if they keep their word on the arrangements made between us, primarily arrangements made at their own request, or we create a few very nice surprises for each other.
