Chips Off the Old Block-head

Jared Kushner Tried and Failed to Get a Half-Billion-Dollar Bailout From Qatar-

 

".........Qatar is facing an ongoing blockade led by Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates and joined by Egypt and Bahrain, which President Trump has taken credit for sparking. Kushner, meanwhile, has reportedly played a key behind-the-scenes role in hardening the U.S. posture toward the embattled nation.

 

That hard line comes in the wake of the previously unreported half-billion-dollar deal that was never consummated. Throughout 2015 and 2016, Jared Kushner and his father, Charles, negotiated directly with a major investor in Qatar, Sheikh Hamad bin Jassim al-Thani, known as HBJ for short, in an effort to refinance the property on Fifth Avenue, the sources said.

 

Trump himself has unsuccessfully sought financing in recent years from the Qataris, but it is difficult to overstate just how important the investment at 666 Fifth Avenue is for Kushner, his company, and his family’s legacy in real estate.....

Donald Trump Jr.'s Emails About Meeting With Russian Lawyer, Annotated

 

July 11, 2017  3:06 PM ET

 

 

"Here, the text appears in chronological order; headers were added by NPR. See the text as tweeted here, combined into one pdf. NPR journalists have annotated the text below with context and analysis...........

 

[simply put, this offer puts members of the Trump campaign in a very questionable area legally.

 

It's illegal under federal law to solicit or accept a campaign contribution from a foreign national or foreign government. Democratic campaign finance lawyer Robert Bauer told NPR’s Peter Overby that opposition research could be considered a contribution.

“It has a marketplace value,” Bauer said. “I mean there are firms that offer, for a fee, to provide opposition research to campaigns.”....]

 

[...Trump Jr. forwarded the entire thread to then-campaign chairman Paul Manafort and to his brother-in-law Jared Kushner. Manafort,...]

Donald Trump Jr.’s Sean Hannity Interview-

 

"...Donald Trump Jr. spent the interview lying, acting arrogant, and claiming ignorance. According to son of Trump, he didn’t know who he was meeting, what the meeting was about, or have any idea what was going on. He only took the meeting because someone promised him dirt on Hillary Clinton.

The obvious problem with Don Jr.’s defense is that it is also an admission of guilt.

 

He admitted that he was willing to take an in-kind gift from a foreign government that would benefit his father’s presidential campaign. What Trump did was confess to an illegal act. The only way that the interview could have gone worse would have been if he had stood up and confessed to being guilty on the spot.

Donald Trump Jr. is under the mistaken impression that stupidity is a valid legal defense. Trump knew what he eas doing. He was trying to get information from a Russian to use against Hillary Clinton....

I'd be shocked if Donald Jr keeps his rendezvous with destiny before the Senate Judiciary Committee in an open hearing next Wednesday.

"White House senior adviser and President Trump’s son-in-law Jared Kushner filed an amended version of his personal financial disclosure form on Friday that showed his initial filing omitted dozens of additional assets, according to a new report.


 


Kushner’s new disclosure includes 77 assets that were “inadvertently omitted” from Kushner’s original disclosure and include real estate, bonds and a personal art collection, The Wall Street Journal reported.....


 


The revised financial disclosure comes shortly after Kushner updated his security clearance disclosure form to include more than 100 names of foreign contacts he’s held meetings with but did not previously disclose......

The Trump circle of crooks knows no bounds. No wonder he needs to know if he can pardon them and himself.

Walter Shaub Retweeted Ivanka Trump

Alongside? This disrespectful tweet is a case for amending the anti-nepotism law to apply to White House -after OLC rev'd its 40yr precedent

What makes a rich man's daughter qualified to serve alongside a Four-Star General?

Ivanka Trump today: ‘We are committed to supporting the American worker and the American job creator’

All of her goods are made in overseas, by foreign workers.

 

Ivanka is committed to making herself richer than when she was first born and in making sure that workers in Bangladesh and China have jobs in her Asian sweatshops.

“Oh hi Ivanka”: Finally, we know the least essential White House employee’s real role  -

 

Interrupting Big Daddy's meetings is neither an accident nor a harmless tic. It's been Ivanka's job for decades ...

 

"....her little snippet of choreography is designed to help Trump use men’s own fears of humiliation against them. Ivanka’s presence subliminally disarms his male opponents — and isn’t everyone who’s not related to Trump an opponent? — because a real man, our culture tells us, doesn’t make another man look small in front of his children. ...

 

.......in the president’s eyes she’s probably still that 10-year-old girl interrupting meetings so he can size up who acts softer toward him when she’s in the room and use that “weakness” against them. (Trump himself lacks a moral code, of course, so this technique would never work in reverse.)

 

....as long as she plays along with these skits that cast her as a child so in awe of what her father does all day in his important office — witness the creepy “Daddy, can I go with you?” stunt they pulled at his tax reform speech in North Dakota on Wednesday, in which Ivanka basically pulled a drive-by on an entire state — she’ll be actively strengthening the conservative mindset that women are all basically children, mentally and emotionally.

 

That has systemic, legal ramifications across the board in our lives, from health care access to workplace equality to how sexual assault laws are enforced and prosecuted. .....

Researchers Identify Gene for Awfulness-

 

“When we began our research, we wanted to find an adult male with pronounced characteristics of horribleness,” Alistair Dorrinson, the scientist who led the study, said.

 

“In studying three of his adult offspring, we found that they were all carriers of the gene that makes one smug, tone-deaf, and oblivious to the fate of others.”Additionally, certain subtraits of awfulness, such as an inability to tell the truth, appear to be genetically mediated, Dorrinson said....

 

“Unfortunately, those who carry the gene for awfulness are more likely to reproduce with other carriers of the same gene,” the scientist said.

Goes to show that Trump gave permission for his daughter Ivanka to marry into Kushner's family not just because they had Hi-Tone real estate in common.
