Trump Supporters Don’t Care that Trump is Putin’s Servant

After witnessing Trump slobber all over Putin’s manhood yesterday during the press conference, while at the same time trashing his own country, many people, including myself once again returned to the question: will this be enough to convince Trump supporters?  The answer is no, it will never be enough.  Most people already know that, but not too many people can answer the follow up question, why won’t Trump supporters admit reality?

You have to understand that there are only two kinds of Trump supporters:  racist fanatics (including closet racists who pretend not to be or have a pretext for being racist), and conservatives who will support a racist if it means they will get a right-wing supreme court and right-wing laws pushed through under Trump.

There is arguably a third category of Trump supporters, but those people have long abandoned Tump.  These were the people fed up with our supposedly “booming” economy, union blue collar folks who have been told that globalization and China’s gutting of our industrial jobs sector is a “good thing” by the “smart people” in the Democratic and Republican parties.  But these people have now seen through Trump’s fraud and lies and know he’s not really there to help them or to protect their jobs.

The first category, the racists, don’t care if Trump bows down to Putin.  To them, the U.S. is a multicultural toilet and is quickly going down the drain due to all of the ‘poor ignorant people’ from shithole countries coming here and mixing in with white people and watering down our white values and religion.

The second category of “conservative at any cost” is pretty self explanatory–the ends justify the means.

But perhaps you are now wondering, how could even racist Americans (or closet racists) support a guy that is Putin’s clear bitch and who trashes his own country?  Well this is where you need to go talk to them, as I did the other day.  I received a full explanation of how the FBI conducted the mass murder of nearly 60 people at Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas last year in order to take away people’s gun rights.  This is what they really, truly believe.

So if you are a racist and see white man and fellow racist Trump standing up next to a mass murdering white man, Putin, who will you trust?  You’re multicultural country that just recently elected a black guy president, with an FBI that murders dozens of people to take away guns, or Trump?

This is the reality these people are living in, it is a delusional racist fantasy world, and they will not see facts or evidence.  They will only see hate.  You can never win over a Trump supporter.  Don’t ever try.  But you sure can learn what drives their insane, delusional, fact and and evidence free racist fantasies.

Rudy Giuliani’s Leaks and Lies

Rudy became a part of the Trump team in April 2018, and said he would have the Russia investigation wrapped up in “2 weeks.”  That was 2 months ago.  Then he said Trump would be interviewed by Mueller no later than July 4.  That day has come and gone.  Rudy has also now been pretty silent after spending weeks on TV losing his mind and acting like a crazy person while he tried to protect Trump.

Where did Giuliani go?

Looks like Rudy has his own legal troubles now and may himself be under investigation for his involvement in FBI leaks that were used to attack Hillary Clinton during the election.  The Trump trash have accused the FBI of being a “deep state” conspiracy against him.  It looks more like there were members of the FBI who were working to help Trump during the election, and to successfully politically damage Hillary.

Remember back right before the election:

Rudolph W. Giuliani was dying to show the country that he remained in the loop. “I mean, I’m talking about some pretty big surprises,” he said on Fox News on Oct. 26, 2016. On an earlier Fox News program, he said, “I do think that all of these revelations about Hillary Clinton finally are beginning to have an impact. He’s got a surprise or two that you’re going to hear about in the next two days.”

That’s strange, how would Rudy have access to an ongoing FBI investigation and know what was going to happen in the next few days unless somebody leaked it to him?  And of course, it had to do with hurting Hillary and helping Trump.

Then this happened:

On Oct. 28, 2016, then-FBI Director James B. Comey signaled that he was reopening the investigation into Hillary Clinton’s emails — a momentous event that may have handed the presidency to Donald Trump and is the subject of much chatter on Comey’s ongoing tour for his new book.

Wow, Rudy knew what was coming?  Or did he make the statement to put pressure on Comey to reopen the BS Hillary investigation right before the election?  Who would such a leak come from?

“There is a renegade quality to the New York F.B.I.,” says a former prosecutor, which, he claims, can take the form of agents leaking to the press to advance their own interests or to influence an investigation. “New York leaks like a sieve,” concurs another former prosecutor.

Could it be that an FBI agent leaked damaging Hillary information to a Trump flunky (Giuliani) and then two days later Comey reopened the Hillary investigation due to pressure from that leak? That might warrant further investigation…

FBI Director James Comey confirmed Wednesday that the FBI is conducting an internal investigation into whether agents leaked information to former Mayor Rudy Giuliani and others about the probe into Hillary Clinton during the presidential campaign.

Fast forward to a few weeks ago, Giuliani was running his mouth about Trump and how the Russia investigation would get wrapped up.  Then all of the sudden he shut his mouth and has not really opened it since.  Is Giuliani scared of something?  What could he be scared of?

According to the recent information released about the inspector general’s investigation of the FBI’s actions:

Although Comey told us that he “didn’t make this decision because [he] thought it would leak otherwise,” several FBI officials told us that the concern about leaks played a role in the decision.

Is Giuliani getting scared?  That would explain him disappearing.

 

Trump Humiliated By North Korean Dictator

On Friday we got news that North Korea is now expanding its nuclear capabilities.  Today, we now have Trump admitting that his deal might fail after he gave the North Korean dictator a propaganda victory by meeting with the dictator and then canceling military exercises.  Another win for the president.

Donald Trump said on Sunday it was “possible” that a deal he claimed ended the nuclear threat posed by North Korea would not “work out”.

“I made a deal with him, I shook hands with him, I really believe he means it,” said Trump. “Now, is it possible? Have I been in deals, have you been in things where, people didn’t work out? It’s possible.”

What a joke.

It’s Money Laundering or Nothing for Trump

It’s pretty clear that president Trump is guilty of obstruction of justice.  But the problem has always been, well why was he obstructing justice?  The standard story is that Trump was working with the Russians to manipulate election results, and wanted to prevent investigators from discovering the extent of his cooperation with the Russian government to win the 2016 election.  Trump’s response to this has been to deny “collusion.”

Tangentially, his supporters in the media have argued that even if Trump had contacts with Russians before the election, he was entitled to do that because he was working to become the next president.  It’s legitimate for a presidential candidate to begin to develop political relationships with international leaders, the argument goes.

Legal scholars have also thrown up some alarm bells, arguing that the only law that Trump could have violated by working with the Russians is over 200 years old and has never led to a successful criminal prosecution. Thus, if “collusion” or conspiracy with the Russians to win an election is all we have at the end of the day, the case seems thin.

In recent months, however, we’ve been treated to a steady stream of news reports indicating that Trump was laundering money for and taking money from Russian organized crime.  Some even speculate that Trump’s properties have been funded almost entirely with Russian mafia money.  A  witness in one Congressional investigation had this to say:

Witness Glenn Simpson told the House Intelligence Committee the money trail to “golf courses in Scotland and Ireland” was “concerning”.

He claimed financial statements obtained by his firm Fusion GPS for a dossier on Mr Trump, right, showed “enormous amounts of capital flowing into these projects from unknown sources”.

Simpson went on to state that he believed the money came from Russian organized crime and corruption.  The idea that Trump takes money from Russia has even been admitted to by his own son, Eric Trump, who told a reporter years ago:

‘Well, we don’t rely on American banks. We have all the funding we need out of Russia.’ I said, ‘Really?’ And he said, ‘Oh, yeah. We’ve got some guys that really, really love golf, and they’re really invested in our programs. We just go there all the time.’

I’ve argued before on this blog and will continue to argue that the real Trump crimes here have to do with money laundering, fraud, tax evasion, and other various steps Trump has taken to receive illegal money such as criminal proceeds, corrupt government proceeds, organized crime money, and cash from Russian billionaires.  And if he was obstructing the FBI investigation because he did not want his money crimes to be discovered, he will be going to prison for a long time–regardless of what “collusion” happened during the 2016 election.

Trump’s Pornstar Payout

Trump had an affair with porn star Stormy Daniels a year after he married Melania. While he porked the porn star, he told her that she reminded him of his daughter Ivanka, a piece of ass that Trump has always wanted to tap.

After the affair, Trump paid Stormy Daniels $130,000 to keep quiet and not ruin his election chances. He was afraid she was going to spill the beans. In other words, he was blackmailed by a porn star famous for her huge fake breasts.

Now Stormy is going to tell all in a graphic magazine piece. She will tell us what sex with a married Donald Trump was like. The Ivanka comments, the fat sweaty missionary pumping. All of it.

Clinton was impeached for banging an intern on the side. Trump was banging a porn star and paid her to be quiet. And the whole time he was fantasizing about being with his own daughter. Far more disgusting and pathetic.

Trump brings great respect and dignity to the office of the presidency. That’s for sure.

Now That Michael Flynn Pled Guilty, What’s next for Donald Trump?

Now that Trump’s former national security advisor Michael Flynn has pled guilty to a felony, people are wondering what it means.

The big ticket conversation item right now is that Trump tried to influence a foreign government before he took office and was a private citizen.  This would be a violation of the Logan Act.  The Logan Act, however, is a 200 year old criminal law and has never been used to prosecute or convict anyone in its entire history.  In fact only two people have even seen charges under the Logan Act, and neither were convicted.

So if the fact that Trump was conspiring with Flynn and others to influence Russia to take certain foreign policy actions before the election is not enough to go the distance, what else is there?

The second, stronger, but still fairly weak theory is that Trump and his team conspired with the Russian government to steal electronic data from Democrats.  This would be a computer crime.  But the record indicates that Trump and his flunkies only made contact with the Russians on this specific topic after the data was already stolen.  So without more information, it does not look like Trump asked Russia to steal the data (before the fact) or planned or conspired to steal it.

A sub-category of potential crimes in this area is a violation of campaign finance law.  It is illegal for a U.S. political candidate to take something of value from a foreign government during a campaign.  Something of value usually equates to campaign money or other assistance.  There’s evidence that Russia spent a lot of money on social media ads that directly benefited Trump.  There was also the famous meeting between one of Putin’s lawyers and Trump’s top campaign officials in Trump Tower.  And of course, Trump’s campaign directly benefited from all of the leaked Democrat emails.  So this could go somewhere, but the question would be how much involvement did Trump’s team have with the actions of the Russians?

Trump’s obvious defense would be, “I can’t tell the Russians how to spend their money, that’s up to them and I didn’t tell them how to do it during the campaign.”  There is some evidence suggesting he did try to tell the Russians how to help him during the campaign, but proving it beyond a reasonable doubt to get a criminal conviction, with what we know right now, would be difficult.

The third option goes back to Paul Manafort, who was indicted for, essentially, corruption and fraud by taking millions from a foreign government and laundering the money and taking a cut.  This could be why Trump has absolutely refused to release his tax returns–because they could show that he is on Russia’s payroll.  If it is the case that Trump was also on the take, and worked with Paul to take millions from the Russians in exchange for influence and favorable policy decisions, this would be a very serious criminal case of corruption, fraud, money laundering, and perhaps even treason against the president.

The third option would also go far to explain why Flynn, and Papadopoulos before him, intentionally lied to the FBI–a felony–about the campaign’s contacts with the Russians.  If Flynn and Papadopoulos knew that Trump and his team were taking millions from the Russians in exchange for helping the Russians (and it looks like Flynn was also taking money from the Russians), then any action taken on behalf or in coordination with Russia is clear evidence of serious criminal wrongdoing.  And the FBI would be the last people you would want to talk to about that.

If, on the other hand, we were still discussing potential Logan Act violations, it seems like the Trump Team, given their willingness to be loud mouths, would have basically said, “Yeah so what we talked to the Russians, we were about to take over the White House and we didn’t want Obama’s stupid decisions to get us off to a bad start.  So of course we talked to the Russians during the transition.  Of course we were talking to them a few weeks before we took office.  We were going to be in charge, so why wouldn’t we do that?”

This is probably why the Logan Act, while still good law, has never been effectively used in over 200 years and is doubtful to be the main dish in the Mueller investigation.  It’s all about the money at this point.

Trump’s National Security Advisor Mike Flynn Pleads Guilty to Felony

Trump’s former national security advisor Michael Flynn just agreed to become a felon. You don’t agree to become a felon and plead guilty to a serious crime unless you are getting something out of it. Flynn was facing more serious charges, and instead of rolling the dice, he turned rat on Trump and/or the vice president, Pence.

Per Business Insider reporter Natasha Bertrand:

This is a “clear sign” that Flynn is cooperating against Trump.  We also aren’t dealing with a hypothetical, we know Flynn has definitely pled guilty:

So what did Flynn give up to avoid more serious criminal charges? Per ABC news, Flynn is prepared to testify against Trump, members of his family and Trump’s staff. Flynn will testify that Trump, as a candidate (not as president), ordered him to contact Russians.  The “as a candidate” part is important because it’s illegal for a presidential candidate to be coordinating with a foreign government, especially one that is an enemy to the US, like the Russian government.

According to Bloomberg news, Flynn also admitted that he had a call with Trump at Trump’s private resort, Mar-A-Lago, to plan how they would approach the Russian Ambassador. That’s is conspiracy, folks.

Prosecutor Brandon L. Van Grack said in court that “a very senior member of the transition team directed” Flynn to contact the Russian ambassador at one point. At another, Flynn “called a senior official of the Trump team at Mar-a-Lago” to discuss a United Nations resolution that Flynn talked about with Kislyak.

Trump’s inner circle is now shitting bricks, they are absolutely freaking out and going crazy, they are very scared and in very big trouble.  One person “very close” to the president said that the Flynn development is “very very bad” because Flynn knows a lot of Trump’s criminal secrets, and he will tell them all to the Feds to avoid going to jail for a very long time.

We have also have a fact statement filed in federal court about Flynn. You can read it here. It’s very obvious that more people are going to be arrested over this. And since Flynn was so high up in the food chain, there are only a few directions this can go in:

  • Trump
  • Trump’s family (sons, daughter, son in law)
  • Attorney General Sessions
  • Vice President Mike Pence
  • Other high-level Trump campaign officials (Bannon, Conway, etc.)

This is history in the making, folks.
