At first blush, it just looks like the bust of another Russian human trafficking operation, run by a husband-and-wife team with two kids and a pricey Miami condo.
And then you look a little closer and it’s a Manhattan Russian criminal enterprise run remotely from Trump Tower III in Miami.
Things will only get worse under this madman occupying the White House. But both parties deserve blame for decades of declining standard of living for the 99 percent:
Americans born into poverty are more likely than ever before to stay that way, according to a United Nations report on poverty and inequality in the US.
“The United States, one of the world’s richest nations and the “land of opportunity,” is fast becoming a champion of inequality,” the report concluded.
The Trump administration has slammed the UN report, arguing the organization should instead focus on poverty in the third world.
…More than 5 million Americans live in third world conditions also known as “absolute poverty,” according to the report.
In Lowndes County, Alabama, the report found residents lacked basic sewage systems. Unable to afford a septic tank some people constructed their own homemade sewerage lines using PVC piping.
The UN study also found 19 out of 55 people tested in Alabama had hookworm. It’s a disease typically found in developing countries, one that was thought to have been eradicated in the US in the 1980s.
While the issue is not new, the problem is becoming more dire under the Trump administration according to the UN.
This man has no concern for national security:
President Donald Trump reportedly gave out his personal cell phone number to foreign leaders shortly after taking office and shocked White House officials when a summary of a conversation was released without their knowledge.White House aides who were unaware Trump had spoken to Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau were startled after Canadian officials released a summary of a conversation in April 2017, according to a Washington Post report published on Friday.”We had no idea what happened,” a senior US official told The Post.During the call, Trudeau reportedly objected to Trump’s and his administration’s claims of a trade imbalance between the two countries.
Do I need to mention the Wall Street Journal is owned by the same person who owns FOX News?
President Trump has become “fixated” on the idea of a new military branch for space and appears to be ignoring legitimate arguments for why the plan should not move forward at this time, the Wall Street Journal editorial board cautioned in its July 4 editorial titled, “Houston, We Have a Space Force.”
“This plan is not ready for the launchpad, even if Mr. Trump is right about the threat,” the board wrote.
One day after Donald Trump wrote a misspelled tweet bragging about his writing abilities, the ghostwriter for his best selling book The Art Of The Dealshot back — saying Trump is incapable of even reading a book.
On Monday, Trump took to Twitter to bash the critics who took on his frequent misspellings and grammatically incorrect tweets, defending his abilities in a post that also had some misspellings. In response, writer and longtime Trump critic Tony Schwartz said that Trump is not only unable to write, he can’t read very well either.
Like shameless, self-preserving rats fleeing a racist sinking ship, staffers are exiting the Trump White House in record numbers, according to an Associated Press analysis of the administration’s just-released 2018 financial disclosure forms.
Per the AP, 141 staffers who were working in the Trump administration on June 30th of last year are no longer there 365 days later.
That 37% turnover rate marks a record high, which looks even worse as you delve deeper into the data. As the White House Transitions Project noted following the release of this year’s financial disclosure forms, Trump has the highest overall turnover of any recent president at this point in his tenure. A whopping 61% of his top staffers have left since the start of his presidency—a turnover rate nearly 20% higher than the next most-abandoned president, Bill Clinton, who had a 42% turnover rate. (President George W. Bush had the lowest rate with just 5% turnover during his first 17 months in office)
Why isn’t this bigger news? Never again can the NRA depicts themselves as a patriotic organization:
Legal experts say it’s likely special counsel Robert Mueller secretly gained access to the National Rifle Association’s tax returns as part of the investigation into Russian meddling in the 2016 election, according to a McClatchy report.
Mueller’s team is reportedly looking into NRA donors with links to Russia and investigating whether some donors used the organization to illegally funnel foreign money to President Trump’s campaign.
The NRA spent $30 million backing Trump in the 2016 presidential election.
