Small World,,,probably Trump's go to gal,,,whose date was she?

,,,President Donald Trump threw a Super Bowl watch party where he cheered on the New England Patriots, the team owned by his friend Robert Kraft, alongside a curious guest: the founder of the day spa where Kraft would be accused of soliciting sex days later.

There is even photographic proof. Trump at some point turned in his seat at his West Palm Beach country club on Feb. 3 for a selfie with Li “Cindy” Yang, 45, who founded the Orchids of Asia Day Spa in Jupiter, Florida. The Miami Herald first published the photograph.,,,

Jussie Smollett update: 'Empire' actor indicted on 16 felony counts by grand jury

A Cook County grand jury has returned a 16-count indictment against "Empire" actor Jussie Smollett, according to court records.

Updated 3 minutes ago
CHICAGO (WLS) -- A Cook County grand jury has returned a 16-count indictment against "Empire" actor Jussie Smollett, according to court records.

The Cook county State's Attorney's Office confirmed the indictment, which they said was returned by a grand jury on Thursday.

Smollett was originally charged with one felony count of disorderly conduct for filing a false police report by the Cook County State's Attorney's Office on Feb. 20.

There have been dozens of twists and turns since "Empire" start Jussie Smollett reported being attacked. Here are some key moments from the start of this story.

Now the grand jury has returned 16 felony counts of disorderly conduct for filing a false police report.

The TV actor claimed he was the victim of a vicious hate crime in the Streeterville neighborhood on Jan. 29. He said two men physically attacked him while yelling racist and homophobic slurs, threw a chemical liquid on him and looped a rope around his neck.

The grand jury returned two separate sets of charges. The first set are related to what Smollett told officers about the alleged attack, including that the attackers called him racial and homophobic slurs, struck him with their hands, put a noose around his neck, and poured some sort of chemical substance on him.

The second set of charges are related to the second interview Smollett had with police about the alleged attack later that day.

Yawn.

House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerry Nadler (D-NY) has hired a campaign consultant who also lobbies on behalf of the head of a Russia propaganda outlet, even as he launches an extensive investigation into President Trump’s alleged Russia ties, according to a report.

The Daily Beast on Thursday reported that Nadler’s campaign consultant is Ezra Friedlander, a lobbyist and political consultant who runs outreach to the Orthodox Jewish community for Nadler’s campaign.

However, he is also a public-relations executive whose newest client is the wife of Kirill Vyshinsky, the head of Russian state news media outlet RIA Novosti’s Ukrainian arm.

That means Nadler has his own questionable ties to Russians, as well as that his campaign is paying a consultant that is doing lobbying work for a Russian propagandist.

The propagandist, Vyshinsky, is actually now in a Ukrainian jail, where he faces treason charges after Ukrainian security forces raided RIA Novosti’s offices in Kiev, according to the Daily Beast.

Ukrainian authorities have accused Vyshinsky of illegally fomenting support for the Russian annexation of Crimea in 2014 — which the U.S. strenuously opposed.

What happens in comrade bernies socialist paradise when the commissars have stolen literally everything!

Suddenly there's a whole class of people whose pockets are no longer worth picking.
"If they steal your wallet, there's nothing in it," says Yordin Ruiz, 58, a shoemaker.
As opposition leader Juan Guaidó struggles to wrench control of this South American country from President Nicolás Maduro, a bigger drama is playing out in the background. The economy is in free fall. Opportunities are disappearing - even for thieves in one of the world's most crime-ridden countries.

Robbers who used to zip around Caracas on motorcycles, shoving pistols into car windows and demanding wallets, are now reduced to walking. There simply aren't spare parts for their bikes. In the past, thieves often snatched cellphones from passengers on the little buses that clogged Caracas highways. But public transportation barely functions anymore.

My first comment on Robin Diel's article in the Union on media bias.

"Excellent observations. We who have been involved in politics have experienced the bias for many years. The reporters are all cut from the same liberal teachings cloth so they report the way they were taught. Republicans bad, democrats good. White people bad, all others good. Instead of reporting the facts they pepper the articles with opinions. And now we see their approval ratings at all time lows. About the same as Congress. Now that Pelosi is in charge we see one day and move on news when her caucus screws up. A R would get hammered for weeks. If the press does not clean its own barn, they will be replaced by internet news and all tose biased reporters will be "coding" for big tech."

Lebanon's Hezbollah appeals for donations to combat sanctions
AFP 9 hours ago

Hezbollah leader Hassan Nasrallah said he expects more US sanctions against the movement (AFP Photo/HO)
Beirut (AFP) - Lebanon's Hezbollah movement on Friday called for donations from its popular base because it says it is coming under financial pressure as a result of Western sanctions.
Hezbollah leader Hassan Nasrallah's appeal came after Britain announced on February 25 that it would seek to make membership of the Shiite movement or inviting support for it a crime.

It also follows the United States ramping up sanctions against the group, with its latest raft of measures in November targeting Nasrallah's son Jawad, among other individuals.
"The sanctions and terror lists are a form of warfare against the resistance and we must deal with them as such," Nasrallah said in a televised speech.

Robert Cross

In the "two wrongs make a right" category: Trump, in laying out his excuses for not turning over requested documents to congressional committees said that "President Obama, from what they tell me, was under a similar kind of a thing — didn’t give one letter. They didn’t do anything. They didn’t give one letter of the request. Many requests were made; they didn’t give a letter."

Just who is the "they" who told trump Obama didn't comply with document requests? They should be fired because IT'S A LIE. Or trump just made it all up as usual because he is a serial liar.

The Obama administration did , IN FACT, provide mountains of documents to Republican instigated investigations into such things as Benghazi (hundreds of thousands), Solyndra (300,000), alleged bias at the IRS (1.3 million), and Fast and Furious (more than 10,000).

Gregory

Bobbie... unfortunately, the massive doc dumps missed a number of docs that were requested.

https://www.propublica.org/article/the-facts-behind-obamas-executive-privilege-claim

I checked... I don't think ProPublica is a biased source, not that should make a difference. For Fast and Furious, Eric Holder was awarded the prized Contempt of Congress citation... I wonder if Atty General Holder has it framed in his office?

To dump a "mountain of documents" onto Congress to obscure what didn't get provided is a well known dodge. It does soothe the hearts of weak-minded supporters.

GeorgeR, Since Trump is the Executive in the three-pronged "equal" government, what if he asked for Schiffs tax returns or had subpoenas for all of those lovelies? Why is it just a one way street with this "oversight" responsibility? Besides what about Executive Privilege? Anyway, maybe a bit of one-ups-man-ship on this crap would silence those lousy democrats.

Just when you thought you were out they drag you back in!

“If you’re a high earner in New York and you move to Florida, your chances of a residency audit are 100 percent,” Barry Horowitz, a partner at the WithumSmith+Brown accounting firm, told CNBC. “New York has always been aggressive. But it’s getting worse.”

New York is also working extensively to catch those high-worth individuals who fake their move to Florida in a bid to avoid paying steep taxes in New York.

Unlike in New York, where punitive tax rates apply to fund its burgeoning public sector and welfare state, Florida’s residents aren’t subjected to any income or estate tax.
Even Blanca Ocasio-Cortez, mother of pro-tax Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, touted Florida’s low-tax system after fleeing the Big Apple.

“I was paying $10,000 a year in real estate taxes up north. I’m paying $600 a year in Florida. It’s stress-free down here.”
— Blanca Ocasio-Cortez

Yet New York's get-tough approach toward its former residents may pose some dangers in the long-term. While recouping unpaid money works for the state’s treasury in the short-term, such practices create a hostile environment for the wealthy that threatens to accelerate their exodus.

What do you call the mountains of lies trump has spread, the constant chants of 'witch hunt' and 'fake news' (none of which provides any rebuttal what-so-ever to the issues in question) if not dodging ? Why? because there is no rebuttal to the truth. All the guilty can do is try and discredit the sources, which is exactly what the 'witch hunt' and 'fake news' mantra attempts to do.

Did you happen to catch the Other Voices column in the Union about brain function and conservative thinking? Very informative and backed by research. Hard to refute given what is written and talked about on this blog.

Robert Cross

In fact, George, you and Greg's responses were dodges. Instead of focusing on the actual question of trump lying about Obama era documents as an excuse for him not releasing documents, you focused on defining what a dodge entails and then turned that dodge into an attack on Democrats, as usual. Are you sure you weren't boxers... dodge and punch seems to be a common tactic.

Re: Maher: Social Justice Warriors ‘a Cancer on Progressivism’ — ‘Just Want to Bitch’

Yes and no. What Maher fails to articulate is the SJWs are working to dismantle Progressivism, to overthrow it by any means they can muster. Things are moving at a high rate of speed. We have witnessed the dead of the Liberal Democrat to the new Progressive to now the Democrat Socialist. The Progressives are the enemy here. A return to the Social Democratic Labour Party (before the major faction of the Social Democratic Party (the Bolsheviks-majority, “bigger”, more) changed their name to the Communists after seizing control of power. Progressivism is out of favor with the New Plan. SJWs are a cancer to Progressivism....only if you are a Liberal or Progressive or New Democrat.

Maher is 100% correct on the bitch comment. Any objective reader can pull up past appearances, interviews, and talks by Ilhan Omar. One big bitch fest. Bitch, bitch, bitch. He father worker in the government under the Marxist Dicator in Somalia as a teachers teacher,, i e, a teachers’ instructor telling them what to say and teach. All Omar’s relatives worked for the government until the civil war (Blackhawk Down stuff).

Rather than talk about her life in Somalia or her 4 years in a Kenyan refugee camp, she spends the lion’s share bitching about her time in Virginia. Her family moved to Virginia first and she became a citizen a 17. She bitches how kids would put bubblegum on the back of her hair or hijab. She bitches about the time kids jumped on her back as she was changing for gym class.. I assume they were girls who jumped on her back or pushed her in the girls locker room. She bitches and bitches about everything.
—As a side note, after 20 years of becoming a citizen and speaking American English, Nancy says she does not understand the meaning of words she speaks, She has spent her entire adult life in America and does not have an accent, but no know what she say. :)
As side note #2, all Israel haters are America haters and all America haters are Israel haters. Omar simply articulates the majority opinion and consensus of the Islamic World.

3) Side note #3
Let’s ask Starticluz what he thinks. Quick, someone please pull the fire alarm so we can get out of here and end this press conference. BTW, he took no question and left the room, ROFLMAO.

Don’t see two white guys (one D and Trump) running for President in 2020. Sherrod Brown had me concerned, but he dropped out. Scratch Amy.
————————
I am one for one on predictions. Figured Manafort would get 3-5. I based this on his age, health, and crime. All tax related stuff from 2010-2014. He earned every penny legally and did not rip off pension funds or investors. The banks he got money from will not or have not lost a penny. No prior criminal record, squeaky clean. Owes 6 million he hid to avoid the taxman.

So, I figure Smollett will get 0-6 months. There is one caveat. I am the only one who thinks Jusse did not do his crimes for more money. He was making 70k an episode and had resigned for 100k an episode. The show was doing ok and he had much prestige in the black and gay community. No, he did it for more fame, more attention, more stardom..an illusive thang.
He will plead it down to no time (maybe a couple of weekends) and some restitution IF he publicly reads a statement that he hatched the plot, planned the caper , paid for it, and takes full responsibility and apologies for lying to the police and public. His ego, his Pride, his insatiable need for attention may prevent him from biting the bullet and taking the humiliation...and thus redemption. 0-6 months, depends if he can level his pride.

“re Gregory 1014am - dumping a "mountain of documents" is a dodge well known to all but progressives who are gratified by the size of the stack, not its contents. As Gregory points out "It does soothe the hearts of weak-minded supporters."

Boy, the Dems were singing the blues and bitchin’ up a storm when they got a document dump of 100s of thousands of docs they requested before the Kavanaugh hearings, lol. And they wanted more. First it was they have too much to go through with too little time and then they said it wasn’t enough. No pleasing some people.

I see they subpoenaed Trump’s pollster, ROFLMAO. And Sessions. Oh, the message is clear. Anyone who dared work for or volunteered for Trump or had any dealings with Trump in any capacity will have their lives torn upside down, ripped a new one, and publicly disgraced. Even CEOs of banks and gals who run companies that did business with the Trump Empire.

They are doing th old fishing for a perjury trap. The process is the punishment. Interesting to note that George the Greek never even met Trump and the FBI did not bother to interview him until 2017, after the election. And Manafort volunteered to run Trump’s campaign for free to get name recognition. Now the Blue Mob is demanding Manafort rot in prison for the rest of his live for tax evasion in 2010-2014, ROFLMO. One fakenews expert on TV said Manafort worked in our government and was a Putin spy. Manafort never worked in the Gov’t! Oh my.

Good thing Pat Cadelll died or else they would slam him for giving Trump some free advice on the phone.

Bottomline: That Meuller must not be very good or thorough. Just look at ALL the stuff he missed. Sloppy work.

James Madison anticipated the significance of congressional inquiry in Federalist 51 when he urged: "In framing a government which is to be administered by men over men. . .you must first enable the government to control the governed; and in the next place oblige it to control itself." Congress has exercised its investigative responsibility since the earliest days of the republic.

Greggie -- 12:40 -- As for starting at the beginning and explaining it all you might want to broaden your information sources as the commencement of investigations into the trump's affairs is old news. As I am not on any of the Committees requesting tax returns or documents, I can't really answer the question of which ones have been requested. However, trump's tax returns have been mentioned as a likely starting place along with documents, bank account info, etc, from the phony trump foundation.

trump's tax returns may be private as far as the public is concerned, however you might want to do a quick search before you insert your foot into your orifices. At least three House and Senate committees have "the unqualified right" to request tax returns. The chair of the House Ways and Means Committee has the authority to request any person's tax return and has stated that he "may" request trump's tax returns at some point in the future and he has the legal right to do so. That would open a can of worms now wouldn't it.

George 3:14 -- once again.. no one in the real world really cares about Hillary Clinton any more. And who are "most people" who know this about Hillary anyway?

What, the FBI’s report exonerating Hillary was written months before the investigation ended and before one single FBI agent even interviewed her? What, the report had to be changed by Peter and friends because Comey wrote “gross negligence” which is a big felony that does not require intent. What’s going on here?

We had things that had happened (operate word past tense HAD occurred) and you have a Candidate paid opposition dirt Dossier with top members of Government and weaponized departments trying to take down her political opponent during a US election and leaking falsehoods about Hillary’s political opponent to the press and lying to the FISA court. We on our side are working on known things that have happened.

Sure, I would like to see the extent and methods used by the Russians to interfere with our last Presidential election. Would be interesting to find out. So far the only direct link to the Russians is the Dossier written by a former foreign agent and paid for by Hillary to defeat her political opponent. Right now, the only direct evidence we have for obstruction at the Tower are two Russians who have direct ties to the firm that hired the guy who wrote the Dossier.

What do you have for Trump tax evasion, tax fraud, Trump ties to Putin besides trying to build a hotel in Moscow, where there is currently more than one Hyatt, Marriott, Radissonn, Ritz-Carlton, Four Seasons, Super 8, Sheratons already?

What go you have? Name the crime. We named the crime, we went after it. Now, name the crime. Collusion? Obstruction? Ok, that is what Meuller is doing. Campaign finance violations? The FEC is on it. Name the crime you are looking for.

All the Dems are doing is flooding the zone looking for a crime. Meanwhile, the politicized members of the DOJ and FBI are dropping like flies and lawyering up with more dominos falling as we speak.

Ah, nevermind. I forget this is Hillary Cuntry. Flynn lied! I will say one thing. That conspiracy theorist Roger Stone is quite the character and one flamboyant dude.

He also might be one of the fisters here, animating a sock puppet or two.

Todd Juvinall

Gregory you may be right.

I was checking Article 1, Section 7 and it appears the Founders qrote this,

"All bills for raising revenue shall originate in the House of Representatives, but the Senate may propose or concur with amendments as on other Bil"

So it appears Trump gas the right to spend the money that Congress "raises". It will be interesting to see this play out.

Also, OOZE/Swallows/Pelline there is nothing in Article one giving the congressional oversight of the Executive or the Courts. If you have something other than a Federalist Paper that says I am wrong let's see it.

Despite my not voting for him, he's the only President we've got. Which makes him your lying weasel, too, Punch.

I classify most of Trump's "lies" as the throwaway hyperbole of an inveterate real estate huckster. As opposed to Obama era lies which were cold and calculated, designed to take down the country a notch or two.

Ozzzzzzzz. I thought you were talking about Congressional Investigations. Oh, I am slow. Jones. He did get some things right. Some. That Pizza Parlor story was a Russian bot interfering with the election. And that Lolleta Express was a Chinese bot, but it was true. And to sound like a broken record, the first time I heard of the Sandy Hook conspiracy was a full one or two hour program on the topic on KVMR. That station plays some weirdo stuff. Best not to listen to it in the daytime. A mind is a terrible thing to waste.

——What we do know (The Truth) is that Obama said how he become aware of Hillary’s private server was at the same time and same way that we all did. By reading about it in the paper. Imagine Huma’s surprise when she was going over Hillary’s old e-mails and exclaimed, “OMG, these are from POTUS,” ROFLMAO. Omaha was e-mailing Hillary on her private server long before he read about it in the papers. Good thing he did not use the handle Carlos Danger cause that name was already taken.

Don’t tell Punchy. You know how upset he gets when a President lies to the press. It will be our secret. Last thing we need right now is to hear the relentless mantra, “Obama lied, Obama lied!” Mums the word. And there is not a smidgen of corruption at the IRS. Thank goodness.

Why the fixation? Why? There are 23 nations around in that region and the New Plan wack jobs fixate on only one nation: Israel. There are terrible human rights abuses going on in Libya, Iran, Saudia Arabia and not a peep from Omar. Saudia Arabia abuses women so bad they can be called women haters and not a peep from the feminists or American Muslim Community. Most were outraged by the killing of a “journalist” in Turkey at the hands of the Saudi’s, but not a peep about human rights abuses or treatment of women in the Kingdom by the Social Democrats. There are horrible human rights abuses going on in China where Muslims are rounded up into camps and practicing Islam is a criminal offense, and not a peep from the anti-Semites of the Left. Women are treated terribly across the Muslim world, and not a peep from Omar or AOC or the New Plan Social Democrats. Silence.

If the House Resolution has come out and singled out and condemned just anti-semitism, 1/3 of the Dems would have walked.

There are 193 nations in the world and the New Plan Social Democrats are fixated on just one: Israel.

The Resolution just empowered the anti-semites on America’s Left. They are now even more emboldened. David Duke was right. Omar is the most influential member of Congress.

I've three M1911's in .45ACP (what else?), one I bought new, the other two were gifts from a close family member.

I got a 5.56mm not quite assault style rifle, with a selection of 5 (one that came with it) shot, 10 shot, 20 shot, 30 shot and 40 shot magazines. All purchased in the state when the big'uns were available. As far as I know, they're all still legal to own.

I got a couple of .22LR target pistols.

A .22 gallery gun
A .22 Browning lever rifle
A .22LR semiautomatic rifle

A P-35 pistol in 9mm Parabellum

A Walther PPK/S in 9mm Kurz
Two Colt M1903 in .380 Auto (the same as 9mm Kurz)

A tiny .25ACP Mauser pistol.

A .357 Magnum revolver.

A 7.7mm Arisaka with bayonet, Chrysanthemum insignia intact

An M1 rifle with bayonet

Hmmm... that's only 17... I wonder what I've forgotten...

Duh, tell us something new. Impeachment is on.

“We don’t have the facts yet,” Nadler said — a perplexing admission for a man who had just confidently enumerated the president’s crimes. “Impeachment is a long way down the road.”

As National Review’s Rich Lowry pointed out a short time later, no one should believe Nadler’s caution. “Don’t be fooled,” Lowry tweeted. “Being a ‘long way’ from impeachment is their first step to impeaching (Trump).”

Nadler’s talk with ABC was the clearest indication yet that Democrats have decided to impeach Trump and are now simply doing the legwork involved in making that happen. And that means the debate among House Democrats will be a tactical one — what is the best time and way to go forward — rather than a more fundamental discussion of whether the president should be impeached.

New York (CNN Business)Move over, Saudi Arabia. America is about to steal the kingdom's energy exporting crown.

The United States will surpass Saudi Arabia later this year in exports of oil, natural gas liquids and petroleum products, like gasoline, according to energy research firm Rystad Energy.
That milestone, driven by the transformative shale boom, would make the United States the world's leading exporter of oil and liquids. That has never happened since Saudi Arabia began selling oil overseas in the 1950s, Rystad said in a report Thursday.

Led by shale, US oil production has more than doubled over the past decade to all-time highs. The United States now pumps more oil than any other country, including Russia and Saudi Arabia.

"It's nothing short of remarkable," said Ryan Fitzmaurice, energy strategist at Rabobank. "Ten years ago, no one thought it could happen."

Actually Obama caused the turn around to stall out and sputter.
The housing market would have turned around in just a couple of months without one single dime of govt money.

Another communist run city going down fast and comrade DeBlasio has some splainin to do -

New York City is headed for financial ruin and could go bankrupt for the first time in 40 years, financial experts say.
Financial experts predict that there are already signs the city is headed for financial disaster, as many individuals and businesses are leaving the city for lower tax areas and city government spending is at an all-time high.

The last time the city came close to filing for bankruptcy was in 1975 when former President Gerald Ford refused to give the city a bailout package to settle its debt.

In fact, de Blasio is adding $3 billion in spending to the current $89.2 billion budget, and spending money at a rate that is three times the rate of inflation, according to the Post.

It also appears that de Blasio will not get help from fellow Democrat Gov. Andrew Cuomo, who is trying to address a $2.3 billion state budget deficit by using auditors to bill wealthy residents fleeing the state for lower-tax regions.

Cuomo’s preliminary budget proposed $600 million in cuts to money allocated to New York City.

Yup -

I’m not a part of the Masters of the Universe crowd who thinks we ought to be bringing in all this foreign labor and the reason for it is pure economics. This is the chance for Americans and lawful immigrants who are already here who are working in the blue-collar trades, who are working in the places where wages are not as high they ought to be, this is their chance to prosper.

And to the extent you import a lot of foreign labor, then you are artificially increasing the labor supply which in turn means that you’re artificially suppressing the wages of American families who are often hard-pressed to make ends meet So I respectfully disagree that we need more foreign labor, to the contrary, I would like to see us reduce the foreign labor that comes into America so that American families who are struggling to make ends meet, particularly those of us who are earning the least amounts, would be better to take care of their own families and less likely to be dependent on the welfare.

Cleaning the swamp in FLA -

• Most significantly, DeSantis replaced three Florida supreme court justices who were required to retire at age 75. His appointees — Barbara Lagoa, Robert J. Luck, and Carlos Muñiz — have shifted the court’s composition from four liberals and three conservatives to one liberal and six conservatives. This jump to the right should keep the Sunshine State’s top tribunal safe for constitutionalism.
• DeSantis pioneered Florida Deregathon — a one-day summit in which agency heads targeted red tape, especially in occupational licensing. While eye surgeons and airline pilots should certify their competence, why do nail polishers and boxing timekeepers need Tallahassee’s permission to work? Florida’s 1,200-hour training requirement for new barbers, for instance, stymies competition by boosting costs and headaches for new entrants.

DeSantis summoned the chiefs of 23 professional-licensing boards to Orlando to “discuss, debate, identify and recommend substantive regulations that can be targeted for immediate elimination,” as his letter told these officials. “I see this event as a first step toward creating a regulatory climate as welcoming as the Florida sunshine.”
