  1. Ivanka's shoes and handbags scandal. I forgot about that one. Thanks for pointing that out. Made in China. 👍
  2. What happened to Chris Kyle? Who killed him...another white Texan? I rest my case. 🙏
  3. Tejas is Baja Oklahoma. It's a craphole state full of Mexicans. There is even a "Tex-Mex" food genre named after it. Name one "good " Tejan in recent memory other than George "W" Bush? 🤔
  4. Still, most Native Americans are on "reservations" created by the white man.
  5. America was founded be people named Cochise, Sitting Bull, Standing Bear, Geronimo, Red Cloud, Osceola, Wilma Mankiller, etc...
  6. Joe Arpaio is 87 years old...he'll be dead soon...and his family will struggle to find 6 people willing to be his pallbearers.

    Tankers torpedoed in the Middle East

    My question is...are you equalling concerned about Kellyanne Conway violating the Hatch Act?
  8. Trump and his cronies are racists...plain and simple. When he “delayed” replacing Donald Trump fave and slave owner President Andrew Jackson’s face on the $20 bill with that of freedom fighter Harriet Tubman, Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin swore before Congress that “technical” issues concerning new security features on U.S. bills were the reason. But on Friday, the New York Times reported that it had obtained a mock-up of a Tubman bill that was created in 2016 — long before Trump took office and appointed Mnuchin head of Treasury: And the design, which features a representation of Tubman wearing a top coat and neck scarf, seems so far along, it raises questions about just how “technical” the issues with the bill could have been, the Times notes. As the Times explains: There’s even an actual metal engraving plate of the Tubman bill, a current Engraving bureau employee told the Times, adding that “the design appeared to be far along in the process.” So what’s the holdup on the Obama-era initiative to honor one of the most famed conductors on the Underground Railroad by placing her likeness on the $20 bill? Mnuchin is sticking to his story that “technical” issues were the only cause. “Let me assure you, this speculation that we’ve slowed down the process is just not the case,” Mnuchin told the Times last week while visiting Japan. Right. Mnuchin has delayed announcing the design of the new $20 bill until 2026 — six years after the 2020 deadline Obama had set, and long after Trump will have left office. “They’re working as fast as they can,” Mnuchin said of the Bureau of Engraving and Printing. But perhaps in a perverse, opposite-world manner, could it be that Mnuchin has done the push to put Tubman on the $20 bill a favor. As the Times put it:
  9. The Trump "administration" normally provides fake news...what's new?
  10. Birds of a feather sleep together. Indicted six-term GOP Congressman Duncan Hunter has held steadfast to his contention that a corruption case against him is the result of a political witch hunt. But that argument got tougher Thursday for the former Marine and close ally of President Donald Trump after his wife, who worked as his campaign manager, pleaded guilty to a single corruption count and acknowledged being a co-conspirator with her husband in spending more than $200,000 in campaign funds on personal expenses. Margaret Hunter accepted a plea deal that calls for 59 charges to be dismissed in exchange for her testimony, full cooperation with prosecutors and other concessions. The conspiracy charge to which she pleaded includes all the allegations contained in the 60-count indictment. "The walls were closing in on him before, now this just makes it more claustrophobic," said Jason Forge, a former federal attorney who prosecuted California Rep. Randy "Duke" Cunningham in 2005 for one of the worst bribery scandals to ever bring down a federal lawmaker. Rep. Hunter "has fewer and fewer options. It's not just his campaign manager. It's his campaign manager and his wife," Forge said. Margaret Hunter detailed in her plea agreement how she and her husband knowingly used the campaign's credit card for six years to bankroll trips to Italy, Las Vegas and Disneyland. She said other expenses charged on the card included $399 for zip lining for Rep. Hunter and two of his three children; $500 in airline travel expenses for their pet bunny, Eggburt; and $351 for a family lunch in connection with a child's Irish dance competition. The plea agreement describes a couple perpetually in debt, yet footing the bill for dinners with friends and private school tuition for their children. They charged more than $500 on the card to celebrate their son's birthday at historic Hotel del Coronado and then told the campaign treasurer the charges were "campaign related," according to her plea agreement. Rep. Hunter, who represents Southern California's most Republican congressional district, said in a statement emailed to The Associated Press that he's been politically targeted by federal prosecutors. After he was indicted last year, he referred to the Justice Department as "the Democrats' arm of law enforcement." He said Thursday that the case should have been handled by the Federal Election Commission and alleged U.S. prosecutors indicted him and his wife ahead of the November elections “to inflict as much political damage as possible in hopes of picking up a congressional seat.” "It was politically motivated at the beginning, it remains politically motivated now," he said.

    Sarah Sanders to leave White House

    She needs to get those eyes straightened out first. You can never trust anyone that can't squarely look you in the eye. 😉
  12. You might have a point...they are both worth pennies on the dollar.
  13. Nepotism is alive and well in the Trump White House. What are Jared and Ivanka's qualifications to "advise" the president? Other than Ivanka being his daughter, and Jared being the guy fu-king his daughter? Ivanka Trump and Jared Kushner took in as much as $135 million in revenue during their second year as aides to President Donald Trump, generated from their vast real estate holdings, stocks and bonds and even a book deal, according to their financial disclosures released Friday. Ivanka Trump's stake in her family's Washington, D.C., hotel down the street from the Oval Office generated $3.95 million in revenue in 2018, barely changed from a year earlier. The hotel, a favorite gathering spot for foreign diplomats and lobbyists, is at the center of two federal lawsuits claiming Donald Trump is violating the Constitution's ban on foreign government payments to the president. Another big Ivanka Trump holding, a trust that includes her personal business selling handbags, shoes and accessories, generated at least $1 million in revenue in 2018, down from at least $5 million the year before. Ivanka Trump announced in July of last year that she planned to close her fashion company to focus on her work as a White House adviser for her father. The disclosure for her husband, Jared Kushner, shows that he took in hundreds of thousands of dollars from his holdings of New York City apartments and that he owns a stake in the real estate investment firm Cadre worth at least $25 million. The disclosures released by the White House and filed with the U.S. Office of Government Ethics show minimum revenue for the couple of $28 million last year generated from assets valued at more than $180 million. The disclosures filed by federal government officials each year show revenue, assets and debts in broad ranges between low and high estimates, making it difficult to precisely chart the rise and fall of business and financial holdings. Among the dozens of sources of income for Ivanka Trump was a $263,500 book advance for "Women Who Work: Rewriting the Rules for Success," published in 2017. Trump has pledged to donate royalties to her charitable fund. Kushner's holdings of apartment buildings through his family real estate firm, Kushner Cos., were the source of much of his income. Westminster Management, the family business overseeing its rental buildings, generated $1.5 million. Separately, one of the family's marquee holdings, the iconic Puck Building in the Soho section of Manhattan, generated as much as $6 million in rent. Among other properties cited in the disclosure was a former warehouse-turned-luxury-condominium in the Williamsburg section of Brooklyn that brought in more than $350,000 in sale proceeds and rent. Former and current tenants in the building have filed a suit against the Kushner Cos.alleging it used noisy, dusty construction to make living conditions unbearable in an effort to push them out so their apartments could be sold. The Kushner Cos. has said the suit is without merit. Cadre has also drawn conflict-of-interest questions. It launched a fund to take advantage of massive tax breaks by investing in downtrodden areas designated "Opportunity Zones," a Trump administration program pushed by both Ivanka Trump and Jared Kushner. Also, this month the Guardian newspaper reported that Cadre received $90 million in foreign funding from an opaque offshore vehicle since Kushner entered the White House. Kushner lawyer Abbe Lowell did not immediately respond to an email and phone message seeking comment. Kushner appears to have cut his debt. He had loans and lines of credit worth at least $27 million at the end of last year, down from a minimum value of $40 million the previous year. His lenders include Bank of America, Citi Group and Deutsche Bank. Deutsche Bank is also a major lender to President Trump's company and has been subpoenaed by congressional investigators looking into his finances. Both Kushner and his wife took steps to distance themselves from their businesses before taking on their roles as unpaid White House advisers. Kushner stepped down as CEO of Kushner Cos. and sold stakes in many holdings, while Ivanka Trump similarly stepped away from executive roles at her companies.
