This family is so wretched that even excess gets a bad name.

And if people are going to criticize the Clintons for trading influence for cash, they need to be all over the Trump-billies.

where’s Mueller when we need him. … but but “they all do it”

Well to be fair not only should they be all over the Trump-billies , they have to be all over ANY Politician that is using their Political power to advance the interests of family members and friends.

See as example Hunter Biden who was an executive of a Ukranian Gas Company when his father and the US Government pressured the Ukrainian Government into firing a Prosecuter who was investigating wrongdoings at the same company.

Or Dianne Feinsteins husband and all of the contracts he has with the US Government (CBRE won a very lucrative deal with the US Government that caused a blip on the radar screen before the media dropped it). He also made a killing on the Housing Crisis of 2008.

This an interesting study and I am trying to find one more recent than it as It appears the issue gets worse year to year.

Now it only measures the Net Worth of sitting Politicians and not their family members that might benefit while they in office.

If only we could invade the Cayman Islands and force them to stop this criminality. But alas, everyone is afraid of the Cayman Islands Police. Our Boys wouldn’t have a chance.

We are witnessing authoritarian neo-feudalism. The social pathologies are an identifiable listing of some sort of dissociative disorder characterized by an absence of consequences. These are - at least - two-fold: 1) the scheming [held at arms length by a variety of financial/fiscal techniques; and 2) an apparent insensate CHOICE of positioning / posturing that is utterly and completely incapable of registering the psychic impacts of those choices.

In other words the consequences of entire threads of choices, decisions and acquisitions are no longer ‘sociopathic’, but psychopathic in that they are being fomented in a sphere of power that has devoted overwhelming attention and treasure to manipulate subservience via “patriotism” and advertising to complete the loop of first accepting a distorted and predatory economic theory and then - perpetuate it by manipulating “desire” and “accessibility” that can only be called the fomenting of a swamp of “wannabes”.

In that there is a full spectrum of alternatives that are shunned, condemned, demonized and killed over, and now sucking up the greater portion of the common resources to institutionalize utter and complete domination, the system is deep into the self-cannibalization stage of collapse. Unfortunately such conditions - at this point- are also in the realm of nature being destabilized beyond any means of control these psychopaths imagine they are imagining, much less capable of conceptualizing. And those incapacities are inextricably linked to the devolution they have set into exponential mode.

Detach in every way possible and consciously nurture healthy alternatives.

Trump shows us that if you can afford high priced lawyers and a consigliere a lot of stuff goes unsung. Therefore unattended.
Is Kushner’s game even legal?

Steve Bannon:

“You realize where this is going,” Bannon told Wolff. “This is all about money laundering. Mueller chose [senior prosecutor Andrew] Weissmann first and he is a money-laundering guy. Their path to f**king Trump goes right through Paul Manafort, Don Jr. and Jared Kushner . . . It’s as plain as a hair on your face. It goes through Deutsche Bank and all the Kushner shit. The Kushner shit is greasy. They’re going to go right through that. They’re going to roll those . . . guys up and say play me or trade me.”

Higgins sez:
“The money came through financial services conglomerate Goldman Sachs via the Cayman Islands …”

A simple matter of convenience, really, as Gold in Sacks has long maintained a branch office in the West Wing.

The islands are a British Commonwealth, I think there are rules against attacking them.

Sooooooo damn true!

If the american people allow this administration to continue on and those who support it to continue to serve in our government, we may be a doomed country loosing all of the things that we once considered of value.

Trump sees he and his family as imperial - royalty. Why should they need to do the messy things of democracy that the “little” people want? How many sycophants throughout government and business support this? How many of the “little” people are mesmerized by the star power?

There’s a DOJ policy – NOT a law, nor ANYTHING in the Constitution – that protects the Presidunce from being Indicted.  But there’s NO excuse for not indicting ALL of the other members of the Drümf-Kushner Crime Family.

Lock 'Em Up!   Lock 'Em ALL Up!!
