From the New York Times:
After pleading guilty to tax evasion, a business partner of Michael D. Cohen, President Trump’s lawyer, will cooperate as a potential witness. The development could be used as leverage to pressure Mr. Cohen to work with the special counsel.
The list of people around Trump that has plead guilty is growing by the day.
I can’t believe anybody but Trump and a few of his bend over servants could possibly think Trump is not dirty.
Look at the motherfucker, he don’t look clean to me!
From the New York Times:
Mrs. Clinton plans to endorse Andrew M. Cuomo for governor of New York this week. But elsewhere on the 2018 campaign trail, she and Mr. Clinton are not always welcome.
These ‘completely reasonable’, ‘pragmatic’ establishment Democrats just continue on obliviously with their nonsense.
From Reuters here:
School districts trying to avoid becoming next on the list are urgently chasing answers, with an increasing number staking their hopes on high-tech security systems originally developed for the military, police and private industry.
These modern tools range from instant background checks for visitors and social-media monitoring software to gunshot-detection sensors and ID cards equipped with panic buttons. They’re driving a rapidly growing school security market, which has ballooned to a multibillion-dollar industry — despite little proof that the new methods prevent violence.
Doesn’t seem to address the root problems but at least somebody makes a bunch of money selling things to desperate people.
School shooting biz joins the war on drugs and reproductive rights as political problems that have become profitable industries.
From the Guardian here:
“I don’t think 500 billionaires are the reason why we’re in trouble … We have not seen this huge concentration of wealth. The folks at the top aren’t bad guys. I get in trouble in my party when I say wealthy Americans are just as patriotic as poor folks. I’ve found no distinction, I really haven’t.”
This statement is enough for me to never consider voting for Joe Biden.
If Joe Biden’s work with Barack Obama was so great and so great for the middle class and didn’t give great advantage to his ‘folks at the top’ then the middle and working class would have lined up to hold their noses and vote for Hilary Clinton.
That’s a fact.
But people know this is some schtick, the ol’ we’re all in this together bullshit while the ‘folks at the top’ outsource jobs, buy politicians, destroy the environment, outsource jobs and generally do to whomever and whatever they need to make their necessary loot.
Fuck Joe Biden bigly.
From the Daily Beast here:
“With the benefit of hindsight, I wish we had moved faster and asked a different set of questions,” Cardinal Health executive chairman George Barrett wrote in his testimony released Monday. “I am deeply sorry we did not.” The subcommittee has spent the past year investigating the rise of opioid use in West Virginia, and found that Cardinal Health and McKesson sent 12.3 million doses of opioids to one West Virginia pharmacy between 2006 and 2014.
Fuckin’ A, 12.3 million doses to one pharmacy over an 8 year period? That’s moving product at Pablo Escobar levels!
You would think somebody would look into why that pharmacy was purchasing so many doses but that would cut into profits, and we can’t have that!
Profits first, dead bodies second.
From Reuters here:
WASHINGTON (Reuters) – U.S. President Donald Trump will request a package of $15 billion in spending cuts from Congress on Tuesday, including some $7 billion from the Children’s Health Insurance Program championed by Democrats, senior administration officials said on Monday.
From CNBC here just before Trump took office:
JPMorgan Chase CEO Jamie Dimon said on Friday he thinks President-elect Donald Trump‘s administration will do the right thing for the U.S. He just needs time, Dimon said, according to Reuters.
Dimon, speaking with reporters following the bank’s fourth-quarter earnings release, said he is comforted that Trump is appointing experienced people to his administration, Reuters reported.
This statement is less than two years old and it appears to be crazy stale and completely wrong headed.
What looks to be a stamp of approval from a legendary white collar criminal looks wildly off base but nobody gives a fuck for this chunk of spoken vomit.
There was a lot of talk about how this was going to be a businessman’s administration and professional and adult. What do we really have? We have a bunch of assholes ducking responsibility for paying off a porn star that allowed Trump’s penis inside her body.
Adult film isn’t really the same as an adult and experienced Presidential administration. Look at that swollen bag of a man Rudy Giuliani. He would be more in his element in a Batman movie and his IQ must have been reduced when they radiated his cancerous prostate.
But Jamie Dimon is a rich so he gets to say whatever bullshit he has on his mind when he should really shut the fuck up.
