Vikingstar you have a posse . There you have been told. Sorry for the communication delay.
There has been so many distratcions lately.
In todays turn of the tale, It is revealed that Preet Bharara, the former US attorney famous for draining the swap of corruption in high places, and recently fired by the Trump regime, was in charge of investigating Deutsche Bank for its money laundering operations. Deutsche Bank is also the Trump empire's largest investor

(I know, I'm being a Bad Person, I simply can't help myself...)
"Regarding other censored media outlet MSNBC:"
If MSNBC is "censored", how is it that it's "the second most watched cable network in prime time for February 2017"? Clearly, my posse is falling down on the job. C'mon you guys, get out there and Censor MSNBC Immediately!
(I mean, really, what's the point in having a posse if they can't censor anything?)
If I had known they were ineffective I wouldn't have told you, you had them .
Some sent Trumps 205 tax returns to a reporter. Its only the first two pages- no schedules included so although it tells us Trump paid taxes 12 years ago, it does not tell us the information we want to know- where he gets his money - does it come from foreign governments?
The reporter, David Cay Johnson, received the two pages in his mail box. Johnson acknowledges that it could have been leaked to him from the Trump regime.That fits. Whose interest does it serve to release only two pages of an old Trump tax return? Donald Trump's interest, to appease his low information supporters who gladly look the other way at all evidence of deep corruption in their leader. Now his minions will repeat that Trump's tax returns have been released. That is the story Trump wants the media to spin, ignoring the fact that the crucial information we seek is not in those two pages.
This is occurring in the same news cycle in which ethics groups petition then US attorney Preet Bharara to investigate if Trump is receiving any money from foreign governments through Trump Towers. Two days later Preet Bharara, star US attorney is fired. Preet Bharara was also in charge of investigating Deutsche Bank for money laundering. Deutsche Bank is Trumps largest investor. What a convenient time to ask ALL Us attorneys to resign! Now all those legal office across the USA are missing leaders.
That's not all. Rachel Maddow connects the dots between Deutsche Bank, Cypress Bank, Trumps last minute bailout by a Russian oligarch, the Azerbaijan public-private Trump business partners, our new commerce secretary and on and on. The details of this global web of connections bears repeating for clarity's sake.
A Trump global capitalist empire has no loyalty to any nation. Even as Trump is spinning his inaugural rhetoric about bringing back American jobs, Ivanka is shipping tons of her trademarked products into the US from China.
Meanwhile she accompanies her father everywhere as an unofficial top adviser in his inner private governmental circle, which is progressively marginalizing the US cabinate and other representatives of the "established" US government
Ivanka Trump Imported 53 Metric Tons of Chinese Goods During Her Dad’s ‘Buy American’ Speech
You are completely wrong! Do not include me in your "we",as I do not want to know .Actually what I know is that is private infromation.
Actually it is simplely non of your business.
You are so deep in your paranoid delusion that you cannot see that if he had done anything illegal( not something you disagree with)
it would have been leaked many years ago to Rachel Madcow and numerous others.
Please take your loonesssy elsewhere.
I think Melania released it. Home alone, drinking wine, rummaging through the filing cabinets . . it's possible.
And while it may be tempting to suspect Trump released it, it does look pretty good on it's face, I sincerely doubt that Trump would provide his detractors with any leverage to demand he release the whole 'truth'.
One of the best ways to defeat global terrorism, drug lords, sex slave rings and arms dealers is to deconstruct the global money laundering channels that capitalize those activities.
If I had known they were ineffective I wouldn't have told you, you had them ."
Actually, given Maddoxs' disastrous "expose" on Trump last night, I think I owe my Posse an apology--looks like they're on the job, deep under cover. She breathlessly revealed the astonishing fact that Trump actually paid taxes (at least in 2005), which pistol-whipped the meme that "Trump didn't pay taxes".
Great going, guys--keep up the good work!
Trump filed extensive financial disclosure to run for office. The "produce the tax returns" is just a plot by the Democr@ps to embarrass him.
And, gosh did it backfire.
"Some[one] sent Trumps 205 tax returns to a reporter. Its only the first two pages- no schedules included so although it tells us Trump paid taxes 12 years ago, it does not tell us the information we want to know- where he gets his money - does it come from foreign governments?"
They also committed a felony in doing so, but hey, it's Trump the (allegedly) Russian-backed Despot, Who is Censoring the Heroic People Like Mac, so who cares, right?
But do you realize, Mac, that by your reasoning, even Rachel Maddow is now part of the Dastardly Trumpian Plot, since she was the vehicle by which Trump has empowered his brainwashed minions to believe that he's just a tax-paying honest citizen? Gosh darn it, if you can't trust Rachel Maddow, who can you trust?
Where does he get his money?
I suspect he just walks up to one of the FED's discount windows and they give him whatever he wants.
Why would he get it from Russia? A smart man like that goes right to the source, and has to pay it back with 0.5 percent interest. I wonder if they raised the rate today to 0.75?
It is well known that the Russians have been financing Trump since the 1990's since he went bankrupt so many times the American banking system wanted little to do with him. You can't hide it. It's not "fake news". You can click on any on-topic link in this thread and see that, But if you want to believe in fairy tales, then nothing will convince you of anything else. Trump profits from the global money laundering economy. He partners with the most corrupt people in the world. I guess that's his idea of "the best people".
It is reported n many reliable sources that Deutsche Bank is Trump's largest financier. Deutsche Bank launders money for the Russians. Trump enterprises offer many ideal laundering opportunities for those in need of such a service.
" But if you want to believe in fairy tales, then nothing will convince you of anything else. "
Or Scary Trump Stories, for that matter. But, we now know that there was at least one year that he didn't go bankrupt.
Have you found a phone booth for your convention yet?
Not that this will make even a teeny bit of difference in the minds of...some people...but here's a assessment on the Russian Oligarchs story from Politifact:
"Nonetheless, records show that banks are still loaning money to him, albeit not the big U.S. institutions. There's no evidence to prove that it's because the large banks have shut him out.
Similarly, there's little evidence to show that Trump has been seeking loans from oligarchs instead of financial institutions. There's circumstantial evidence that oligarchs have been involved in his business dealings, but mostly through intermediary companies that own a financial stake in his projects. That's different from a direct loan.
Because the statement seems to contain some elements of truth but ignores critical facts that would give a different impression, we rate it Mostly False."
@VS: "They also committed a felony in doing so, but hey, it's Trump the (allegedly) Russian-backed Despot, Who is Censoring the Heroic People Like Mac, so who cares, right?"
It's not a felony if you send your own tax return....
President Bannon Is Laying the Groundwork for Destroying the Executive Branch
This article is consistent with my own observations, that the Trump administration is marginalizing our established system of government run by those who require congressional approval as he simultaneously installs his own private system of government run by the Trump family and long time business associates.
Jared Kushner is being given roles which usually belong to the Secretary of State.
Trumps former lawyer Jason Greenblatt, is now employed at the White House, as the President’s special representative for international negotiations.Greenblatt signed off on due diligence in the notorious Azerbaijan Trump hotel in partnership with Ziya Mammadov, the Azerbaijan Transportation Minister and one of the country’s wealthiest and most powerful oligarchs, also said to be one of the most corrupt persons in Azerbaijan, known to be one of the most corrupt places on earth.
QUOTE FROM The New Yorker: Trump's Worst Deal:
Erich Ferrari, an attorney who specializes in sanctions-related legal cases, said that before the Trump Organization cashed any checks it should have been certain of “the source of the funds”—“not only the bank it was remitted from but how the Mammadovs actually earned the money they paid.” He said of the Baku deal, “It takes a lot to shock a lawyer, but I’ve had very few clients do so little due diligence.”............According to Erich Ferrari, the lawyer who specializes in sanctions, companies that learn of a possible sanctions violation typically commission a “look-back” investigation that “reviews all payments you received, to make sure they didn’t originate with a sanctioned entity.” He added, “All the big four accounting companies do them routinely.” The Trump Organization did not commission a look-back.
The Trump appointed new Commerce Secretary, Wilbur Ross,is a long time business associate of Donald Trump, who helped to salvage one of Trump’s failing Atlantic City casinos in the 1990's
In July 2014, Wilbur Ross and his investment group bought a 17 per cent stake in the Bank of Cyprus, a bank used by Russian oligarchs to stash their wealth where the Russian government can't take it. Ross became the bank’s co-chairman, playing an active role recruiting its senior management team,including its board chairman, Josef Ackermann, a long-time former chairman of Deutsche Bank, Trump's number one business investor, now charged with money laundering for the Russians.
QUOTE from the Daily Mail :The Oligarch Files:
It is now acknowledged that Ackermann’s tenure at Deutsche Bank was a period of spectacular chicanery. This includes anything from sanctions busting, interest rate rigging, and mortgage fraud to facilitating tax dodging, illicit trading, illegal foreclosures, rigging energy markets and laundering Russian money, which has since resulted in it facing fines and settlements totaling £16 billion.
As I learned from studying the public-private hegemony installed in Maine over and above our State Constitution,the method used by the hegemony is to install private governments within the public government. Then it becomes a tug of war of power. Does the private government dominate the constitutional form of government- or do the tools provided by our Constitution come to bear to oust the private government from power?
I agree with this article when it says that under another president the review of administration functions would have another effect, but this follows in the footsteps of gutting our State Department, and asking all US Attorneys to resign. It appears that as Trump employs a inner circle of governmental amateurs as his closest advisers, he is finding every way possible to marginalize our "established " government- ie our constitutional government.
Gutting state Dept. ?
The only gut I have heard about is from the Secretary of State. he admitted he eliminated "overtime" in the department.
I would like to know what function required overtime ?
Let the gutting continue !!
Remember when Trump campaigned on changing libel laws so that he could sue those who wrote stories about him that he doesn't like? Now that Trump is president, he think's it is a podium from which he can mindlessly invent stories about anyone. While he shuns security briefings, his own state approved media has become his official intelligence source and Fox News is happy to comply by concocting narratives to justify everything that Trump does. Sadly Judge Napalitano is now on the list of state news reporters. Napolitano came up with Trump's latest explanation for his allegations that the Obama administration wire tapped Trump Towers. Obama used British Intelligence to do it! We all know how chummy the Obama administration was with our British allies -NOT! Looks like the Trump regime is doubling down on the severance of the American- United Kingdom friendship !
The British are demanding an apology, while the administration is denying that it is apologizing as it apologizes. As this article points out, Trump is doing enormous damage to America's trustworthiness in the world!White House: No apology to British government over spying claims
