Why is the Trump administration helping Saudi Arabia cover up murder?

There can be one and only one explanation as to why Trump is helping the Saudis cover up murder:  Trump is being bribed.

Trump himself admitted in a campaign speech in Alabama in 2015 that the Saudis spend a lot of money with him, buying Trump properties.

At a campaign rally in 2015, Trump articulated the specific conflict that he denied on Tuesday morning.

“Saudi Arabia, I get along with all of them,” he said. “They buy apartments from me. They spend $40 million, $50 million. Am I supposed to dislike them? I like them very much.”

In the 1990s, as Trump’s business empire was stumbling, he secured cash infusions from deals with Saudi officials.

  • He sold a yacht (coincidentally once owned by a cousin of Khashoggi’s) for $20 million to Saudi Prince Alwaleed bin Talal.
  • Trump sold a stake in the Plaza Hotel to the prince a few years later.
  • In 2001, he sold a floor of Trump World Tower, near the United Nations in New York, to the Saudi government for $4.5 million.

More recently, the Saudi government spent $270,000 at Trump’s D.C. hotel.

“The rooms,” The Post’s David Fahrenthold and Jonathan O’Connell reported, “were used to house people visiting Washington to lobby against a law that the Saudi government opposed — a law that allows victims of the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks to sue the Saudi government.”

Earlier this year, the Trump International Hotel was able to turn around its two-year losing streak, seeing a profit in the first three quarters of 2018. How? A five-day stay in March by members of the crown prince’s entourage.

This excludes income from other Saudi Arabian nationals. Earlier this year, the management of Trump’s hotel in Chicago reported that business from Saudi Arabia was “up significantly over the previous year,” with 218 room-nights (one room booked for one night), compared with 116 to the same point in 2017.

Call it what you will, the fact remains, it’s bribery and the President of the US is being bribed by a foreign power.  That’s known as treason.

This is how it will go down:

Here’s how I see it going down:

1. Nancy Pelosi becomes Speaker-Elect late in the evening of Nov 6, 2018.

2. Mueller issues a boatload of indictments on the morning of Friday, November 9, 2018, including surprises  — not just Jared and Don Jr. but Eric, Ivanka, and Eric Prince as well. We will be stunned at the depth and breadth of the Trump family treason.

3. Congressional Republican leaders visit the White House late afternoon, Friday, November 9, 2018.

4. Trump resigns late evening Friday November 9, 2018.

Trump cannot withstand the investigations that will be launched in January 2019 by a Democratic house majority and Mueller will move quickly after the election to ensure Trump doesn’t get any grand ideas about issuing pardons.

And another coal company goes into bankruptcy . . . where are all those coal jobs Trump promised?

A Tennessee coal mining company that filed for bankruptcy this week is the second coal company to go bankrupt during Donald Trump’s pro-coal presidency. It’s also the fifth U.S. coal industry bankruptcy in the last three years as competitors in the energy market continue to drive coal into the dust pile.

Mission Coal, an operator of three mines in West Virginia and one in Alabama, filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection on Sunday listing about $175 million in debt and just $55,000 cash on hand, according to court filings. This small company joins Colorado-based Westmoreland Coal, one of the country’s oldest coal companies, which filed for bankruptcy earlier this month, and Peabody Energy, Arch Coal and Alpha Natural Resources, which all have ended up in bankruptcy courts since 2015.

Competition from other energy sources—super-cheap natural gas in particular—has been the main culprit. Obama-era “clean coal” regulations scuttled earlier this year by the Trump administration has played just a small role in the industry’s collapse, experts say.

The White House, which has been drafting a plan to prop up the coal industry on national security grounds, has recently abandoned its efforts, according to reports. The fate of Mission Coal helps explain the challenges.

Louisville area white supremacist, Klansmen identified

Here’s a photo that resulted from research by a Louisville area lady who has made it her mission to unmask white supremacists, Klansmen, Nazis, and other human cockroaches in the area.

This is a group of “Proud Boys.”  Who are the “Proud Boys?”  Short answer:  Trash.

Long answer:   Proud Boys is a far-right men’s organization with presences in the United States, Canada, Australia, and the United Kingdom.  It was founded in 2016 by Vice Media co-founder and former commentator Gavin McInnes. Proud Boys emerged as part of the alt-right.  Several hundfred Proud Boys participated in the Charlottesville, VA,  riots (August 2017).  While the group claims that it does not support white supremacist views, its members often appear at racist rallies and events.   The organization glorifies violence, and members participate in violence at events it attends; it has been called an “alt-right fight club”.

Having said that, here are some of the Louisville, KY, area Proud Boys.  That symbol they are making with their fingers is a well-known white supremacist sign.

Trump is preparing to throw Republicans under the bus . . . too bad, you voted for this piece of shit

In a very wild interview with the Associated Press earlier this week, President Donald Trump said something that should make every Republican in Congress a little skittish.

AP: So my question is, if Republicans were to lose control of the House on November 6th — or a couple of days later depending on how long it takes to count the votes — do you believe you bear some responsibility for that?
Trump: No, I think I’m helping people. Look, I’m 48 and 1 in the primaries, and actually it’s much higher than that because I endorsed a lot of people that were successful that people don’t even talk about.
In case you missed it: The Republican President is asked whether he would take any blame if Republicans lose the House or Senate in 20 days’ time. He says he will not. Which means — stay with me now — that Trump will blame Republicans if/when they lose the House or, much less likely, the Senate.
This is in keeping with two fundamental truths about Trump:
1) He never thinks anything is his fault
2) He doesn’t associate with people he believes to be losers
In Trump’s mind, he wins. He is a winner.
“My whole life is about winning,” Trump told The Washington Post in December 2015. “I always win. I win at golf. I’m a club champion many times at different clubs. I win at golf. I can sink the three-footer on the 18th hole when others can’t. My whole life is about winning. I don’t lose often. I almost never lose.”
When his side loses, they aren’t his side anymore.
Which brings me to what Trump might do if Republicans, as history, polling and most smart neutral observers expect, lose the House majority in 20 days.
He’s already given us a VERY big clue — in an interview last week on “Fox & Friends” — when asked about how he would get along with a Democratic majority in the House. Said Trump:
“Now, can we get along? Maybe. And there’s a possibility. They want infrastructure, I want infrastructure; there’s something that can bring us together. We have a lot of things were there is commonality and it’s possible that we’ll even get along.”
One thing I’ve learned in covering Trump is, listen when he tells you something. And, in the last 5 days, Trump has told us two things: 1) He’s not going to take the blame for a Republican election loss and 2) He thinks he and Democrats could get along just fine on certain legislative proposals.

Trump supporter, leader of the “Proud Boys,” threatens to kill Democrats . . . bring it on, fool, bring it on!!

A video that shows far right extremist and Trump supporter Gavin McInnes calling for violence has gone viral overnight with over 185,000 views on Twitter in just 15 hours.

In the video compilation (below), McInnes can be heard describing the men’s group he founded, Proud Boys, which the Southern Poverty Law Center has designated as a hate group.

“I started this gang called the Proud Boys,” McInnes says in the beginning of the video.

“We will kill you,” he says in the next segment of the edited video. “That’s the Proud Boys in a nutshell.”

The video was posted to Twitter by Vic Berger, whose website says he is a video editor.

McInnes is known as the co-founder of VICE Media, and now has a talk show on CRTV. He is also a Fox News guest.

Here are a few excerpts:

“Like Bill the Butcher and the Bowery Boys, we will assassinate you.”

“If you’re wearing a MAGA hat and some guy with a slightly punk demeanor says, ‘Hey, are you … pro-Trump?’ choke him. Trust your instincts.”

“Don’t listen to what he has to say, choke him.”

“Can you call for violence generally? ‘Cause I am.”

“Fighting solves everything. We need more violence from the Trump people.”

“Trump supporters: Choke a motherfucker. Choke a bitch. Choke a tranny. Get your fingers around the windpipe.” (Better clip of this statement here.)

“Get a fucking gun.”

“Get ready to blow someone’s fucking head off.”

“Get in trouble. Get arrested. Get fired. They can’t kill us all.”

Here’s my response to McInnes and to any of the “Proud Boys” or to any other Trump supporter or rightwing sonofabitch who wants to kill Democrats:  BRING IT ON, MUTHATHFUKAH, BRING IT ON.

Fox will not tell you any of this
