whatz to make up?
 
trump knows exactly who's side our news media was on back in the campaign. he himself called them a pack of liars.
 
why should he legitimize their lack of journalistic objectivity and integrity?
 
he will not! he will in fact lay it down like it is.
 
donny trump will remain strong, sure and in power.
 
sometimes the strong leader will speak force to evil trumps all them inconvenient legalistic complexities.

If I was Donny's lawyer I'd bill him every week and

make sure I got paid by Friday night in cash.

Trump has hired a lawyer from Joe Lieberman's firm to represent him in the Russia investigation.  I guess Joe will be recusing himself once Trump appoints him FBI director.  You can't make this stuff up.

The Trump admin will need a bigger life raft then the one used in the Hitchcock film Lifeboat for all the officials that have to recuse themselves.    :lol:

 

(and to be in the same boat as Sessions;   that is cruel and unusual punishment!).

"In Beijing, China, President Trump’s son-in-law and close advisor Jared Kushner’s sister, Nicole Kushner, was busted hawking E-B5 visas to wealthy Chinese businessmen in exchange for investments into the Kushner 1 real estate project in New Jersey....

 

....the Washington Post reporters were chased out of the building by security, being told that “this is not the story we want” – an open admission that what was transpiring within that ballroom was the literal definition of corruption.....

<_<

 

This came the day after Trump signed the provision for this into law.  Don't tell me that there is not collusion to make billions from the office.  Apparently they were suggesting to the Chinese by pictures and verbal inferences that there would be access to the WH with investment.

ever see shelley winters on Batman as ma barker?...

 

that's the real ma barker. :lol:

Never saw that episode, but I doubt it had much

in common with the actual Ma Barker, which is

okay as it's only a TV show.

There's a very good book, Public Enemies: America's Greatest Crime Wave and the Birth of the FBI by Bryan Burroughs, that I recommend. It's the best single book on the subject, and wades through all of the legendary hyperbole about those criminals and gangs to get at the actual truth. Ma Barker, Machine Gun Kelly, Baby Face Nelson, John Dillinger, and Bonnie & Clyde all get covered. The Dillinger sections served as the basis for the 2009 movie Public Enemies with Johnny Depp as Dillinger, but the book was much better.

I have that book. Well written and detailed. I think of all the well known 1930s

criminals, Ma Barker was the one most hyped up, her actual story being much

exaggerated. The caption to her photo contains the description I paraphrased

before. It actually is "A cranky old hillbilly consumed with jigsaw puzzles,..." The

only thing I didn't like about the book is that it is arranged chronologically and

so it jumps from one public enemy to another and then back again, making it

a bit hard to follow.

Yes, if she had been charged, she likely would have been charged as an

accomplice or an accessory, but that was about as far as her role went.

Her actual biography has been blown totally out of proportion, which is

nothing new for a movie or a TV show. I would guess that most experts

would call Alvin Karpis the brains behind the gang. I remember reading

one description of Ma Barker as just an old hillbilly woman who enjoyed

jigsaw puzzles (or was it crossword puzzles. I don't remember).

Next you'll be telling me that Eliot Ness never met Al Capone. LOL

I get all my gangster history from The Untouchables--there's usually a kernel or a grain of Truth in it. But the Ma Barker Story had to be tailored to suit Claire Trevor and she was wonderful in it.

Not all gangsters live up to their legends and Ma Barker was certainly in that category. But in today's terminology, we would just say that she was a very big enabler to the criminality of her four sons, if not an accessory.

Just to cut Ma Barker a break. There is no evidence she actually
participated in any of the crimes of her sons. Yes, she knew what
they were up to and kept things going on the home front, but she
was no criminal mastermind. As a gangster who knew her said,
She couldn't plan breakfast, much less a crime. Old J. Edgar
had to come up with an excuse for why they shot a 61 year old
woman and so the legend of Ma Barker the deadly criminal genius
was born.

I mean really.

such ugly desperation.

picking on a young mother of three. :huh:


Ma Barker was the proud mother of four sons.

Al Capone had one son.

Anybody can have children--having children doesn't put you in any special category in terms of your character. Just ask any foster care department in any state in America.
