Not a joke: Trump is looking into making bribery legal

Westlake Legal Group YAMV4zeuTCr33fC7Ai8wD6b5HKlxETAhOnMkE7Z0CqA Not a joke: Trump is looking into making bribery legal r/politics

Let’s not forget 5 right wing political activists on SCOTUS fucked up our campaign finance laws and Obama called this out years ago. There’s also former Justice Kennedy’s ties to Trump’s finances.

Kasie Hunt, who’s in the House chamber, reports that Justice Samuel Alito mouthed the words “not true” when President Barack Obama criticized the Supreme Court’s campaign finance decision.

“Last week, the Supreme Court reversed a century of law to open the floodgates for special interests — including foreign corporations — to spend without limit in our elections,” Obama said. “Well I don’t think American elections should be bankrolled by America’s most powerful interests, or worse, by foreign entities. They should be decided by the American people, and that’s why I’m urging Democrats and Republicans to pass a bill that helps to right this wrong.” (Via Politico, 2010)


But they (Justice Kennedy and Trump) had a connection, one Mr. Trump was quick to note in the moments after his first address to Congress in February 2017. As he made his way out of the chamber, Mr. Trump paused to chat with the justice.

“Say hello to your boy (Justin Kennedy),” Mr. Trump said. “Special guy.”

Mr. Trump was apparently referring to Justice Kennedy’s son, Justin. The younger Mr. Kennedy spent more than a decade at Deutsche Bank, eventually rising to become the bank’s global head of real estate capital markets, and he worked closely with Mr. Trump when he was a real estate developer, according to two people with knowledge of his role.

During Mr. Kennedy’s tenure, Deutsche Bank became Mr. Trump’s most important lender, dispensing well over $1 billion in loans to him for the renovation and construction of skyscrapers in New York and Chicago at a time other mainstream banks were wary of doing business with him because of his troubled business history. (Via NYT, 2018)


The Russian state bank VTB underwrote loans to Donald Trump via Deutsche Bank. Over the course of Trump’s relationship with DB, an inordinate amount of questionable, mismanaged & risky loans approved by Deutsche Bank to Trump required his Personal Guarantee which, over time, also lost its value.

Trump’s team at DB sought out creative ways to circumvent the varied protections DB’s compliance team institutionally implemented, & whether by happenstance or by design Trump’s loans became underwritten by Russia’s own VTB.

I informed the FBI of this in 2019. –Val Broeksmit

Trump’s newest Russia adviser ‘escorted from White House’ amid security investigation

Westlake Legal Group -1w5OTKa-eApxPT8hJJaOaT2pejSWD2mA2iDXzD2MN8 Trump's newest Russia adviser 'escorted from White House' amid security investigation r/politics

Mr Trump has also held several private meetings with Mr Putin, at one point allegedly forcing an interpreter to tear up their notes of the conversation.

What-the-ever living-fuck!!??

To me, that one act represents a national security threat and alone is cause enough for impeachment if not Trump’s removal from office.

It not just begs, but screams the question WTF is Trump concealing? He is meeting w/the leader of a hostile nation and he wants not even 1 person (other than the interpreter) with proper clearances or from the intelligence community in the same room? Nor any record of the meeting whatsoever? That just screams treason.

For all anyone knows Trump could have been handing Putin state secrets in those private meetings. Probably why he wanted the interpreter to tear up the notes.

The orange motherfucker needs to keep in mind that he is a goddamned public servant and not the CEO of a private corporation – he needs to start acting like one.

Sanders Team Hits Back After Biden Claims Social Security Video Was ‘Doctored’: “The facts are very clear: Biden not only pushed to cut Social Security—he is on tape proudly bragging about it on multiple occasions.”

Westlake Legal Group cGfhTp3T_s4WykY6iF7jfGF-iucuclxtWUaDZYkr0e8 Sanders Team Hits Back After Biden Claims Social Security Video Was 'Doctored': “The facts are very clear: Biden not only pushed to cut Social Security—he is on tape proudly bragging about it on multiple occasions." r/politics

im bothered the only response from biden was to try to lie and call one single video as “doctored”, ‘a loaded word in the era of disinformation’.

here is politico and the NY times confirming that the Biden campaign lied about the video being ‘doctored’

as meagan day of jacobin notes, the fact-checking website PolitiFact took issue with Sirota’s interpretation of these remarks. PolitiFact insisted that Biden was being sarcastic, as apparently evidenced by the fact that he leaned forward and whispered the last bit.

But as the Intercept’s Ryan Grim pointed out, Biden does that whispering thing a lot. He usually does it when he’s “speaking forbidden, politically incorrect truths to the Left,” not when he’s being sarcastic. Furthermore, Grim observed that later in the same speech Biden says that Medicare and Social Security “can stay, it still needs adjustments, but can stay” — adjustments being DC-speak for cuts.

“Paul Ryan was correct when he did the tax code,” Biden said in 2018. “What’s the first thing he decided we had to go after? Social Security and Medicare. We need to do something about Social Security and Medicare. That’s the only way you can find room to pay for it.”

the claim has been that the video is somehow “doctored”(which it is verifiably false as reported by NY Times and Politico).

the back peddle approach is that the video is “out of context”. its fun because the context of the video in reality provides a much worse case for biden than the original clip he claimed was “doctored”

a bundle videos have him on record with social security cuts. here are a few more receipts.

Video 1 “When I argued that we should freeze federal spending, I meant Social Security as well. I meant Medicare & Medicaid. I meant veterans’ benefits….And I not only tried it once, I tried it twice, I tried it a 3rd time & I tried it a 4th time.”

Video 2 Joe Biden saying we must consider cuts to Social Security & Medicare. When asked if changes to eligibility age & COLAs should be considered, he said in 2007: “Absolutely…You’ve got to put all of it on the table”

Video 3 Another clip surfaces of Joe Biden proudly bragging about working with Republicans on a plan to cut Social Security.

Video 4 1:22 is where he calls for “adjustments” to Social Security. That means cuts. Earlier he alludes that one of those cuts should be means testing.

Years that Biden pushed for cuts to Social Security: 1980s, 1990s, 2000s, 2010s.

That’s a lot of video to doctor.

these are facts, not attacks.

Latest Parnas Docs Made Clear That Investigations of Rep. Nunes Are Necessary: Legal Experts

Some Traitor that You didn’t Know,
by Lev Parnas.

Now and then I think of when we were coconspirators

Like when you said you felt so happy you could lie

Told myself that you would stand by me

But felt so photographed in your company

But that’s our party and our motto “I don’t remember”

You can get addicted to a certain kind of treason

Like cabinet resignations to the end, always the end

So when they found our lies did not make sense

Well you said that we would still be friends

But I’ll admit that I was glad it was over

But you didn’t have to cut me off

Make out like it never happened and that we were nothing

And I don’t even need your pardon

But you treat me like a stranger and that feels so rough

No, you didn’t have to stoop so low

Have your friends redact your records and then fudge some numbers

I guess that I don’t need that though

Now I’m just some traitor that you didn’t know

Now I’m just some traitor that you didn’t know

Now I’m just some traitor that you didn’t know

.

Now and then I think of all the times you sent me to Ukraine

But had me believing it was always “not a crime”

But I don’t wanna live that way

Redacting every word you say

You said that they would let me go

And I wouldn’t catch you calling me some traitor that you didn’t know

But you didn’t have to cut me off

Make out like it never happened and that we were nothing

And I don’t even need your pardon

But you treat me like a stranger and that feels so rough

No, you didn’t have to stoop so low

Have your friends redact your records and then fudge some numbers

I guess that I don’t need that though

Now I’m just some traitor that you didn’t know

Now I’m just some traitor that you didn’t know

Now I’m just some traitor that you didn’t know

DOJ Defies Court Order to Produce Memos and Notes From Jared Kushner’s Mueller Interview

Westlake Legal Group mbtQ5Y2c2QhS1HRAaqpZWrRRHfYnkXAQ3WMWWiQnwMA DOJ Defies Court Order to Produce Memos and Notes From Jared Kushner’s Mueller Interview r/politics

I too was raised in a Republican household. My first Presidential vote was cast in 2000. I had to help my oldest child through her first Presidential election in 2016. Now in 2020 I have three kids old enough to vote, and WE ARE FED UP.

Please check out The Asset podcast hosted by Max Bergmann for a super interesting history of Trump’s rise and all the many interweaving connections between his “billions”, the collapse of the Soviet Union, the crazy connections between the Russian oligarchs, the Russian government, and Trump’s “business deals”.

I was skeptical at first, but figured I’d listen with an open mind. There are receipts going back 40 years. The detail and intrigue is phenomenal. It is like a strange spy movie….until you remember it is our current reality.

Joe Biden is out of step with the rest of the country on marijuana

Westlake Legal Group JpV86gN7WPHOO0L5b6YEuKdBNb_wwlpjpuAWUVmyto0 Joe Biden is out of step with the rest of the country on marijuana r/politics

He is one of the creators of Civil Asset Forfeiture

He thinks Video games cause violence

He doesn’t understand the difference between Section 230 and the First Amendment with regard to facebook (and a lack of understanding of the internet and it’s importance in society in general).

He is against any sort of reform or relief for student loan debt, not recognizing it for the economic crisis that it is.

He doesn’t understand how employers controlling your healthcare means you don’t have a choice in health care.

He has openly stated he does not anticipate things changing much at all if he were president.

He’s been on the wrong side of history for quite a while now and most of his political beliefs make him a centrist democrat for the 1980s. He’s 40 years behind the times.

In the “Me too” era, he’s a creepy man who makes women uncomfortable (borderline sexual assault/sexual harassment with inappropriate touching/rubbing) and doesn’t seem to understand why. Instead he does non-apologies about being sorry their feelings were hurt by his actions rather than sorry he was being a creepy mf-er.

Forgot to include: He’s also not all that concerned with climate change while as a society we’re on the edge of no return careening towards literal collapse if we don’t do something.

If Biden gets the nomination for the democrats Trump will win.
