How does that resonate with you?

My man !!!

I hear ya, BoE. I hear you. I got it, I see it. I'm not asking for a re-hash and I'm hoping y'all will avoid that. Yes, I've taken note that Tom R has unwisely defended himself. None of y'all need defense here. That's my position.

Can that become *our* position ???

Yes, I think it can. As Captain Picard might say, "Make it so."

peter-

we took the kids to parma but stayed in an agriturismo outside salsamaggiore with its baths. The kids noted all the pigs in trucks on the highway going into parma, but then empty pens coming out as we later drove to bologna to turn in rental car.

To this day, they always want me to have a wedge of parm reggiano in the refrig. The vegetarian diva went through a stage where she had read it was not vegetarian because of how it was stored and asked me to get veggie parm. Tried it and decided it was not a matter of principle and went back to what she loved.

Not sure well else you are going but from bologna we took train to ferrara for the night. It has one of the last moated castles left in europe and is the home of the d'este family. Lucretia borgia married into that family and lived there. Has a real dungeon too.

Also in the town square is a wine bar in operation continuously since the 1400s. Copernicus lived above it. My kids claim travelling with me is one continuous history lesson. Anyway, ferrara is a stop on the train to venice.

What a bizarre column from Daniel Block, TM.

So if I can imagine that, why can't progressives imagine Trump trumping up convincing evidence of Russian kompromat against President-Elect Bernie Bolshevik?

Here's my answer to that question, man. It's called the kind of cognitive dissonance one experiences when looking in the mirror and confronted with a difficult personal truth.

The tendency?

Project, project, project.

External, external, external.

Not my fault!

Orange man bad!

Fear the fascist!

We didn't want to do it!

But we had to do it!

(sure you did, bee-otch)

My criminology professor might have said it's the result of "anomie." For me, if we're lucky, the leftwing version of this lack of moral guidance, this lack of boundaries or understanding what is absolutely beyond the pale, made operational even if clumsily so by Clinton, Inc. and Obama, Inc., is about to get exposed bigtime.

They can't imagine it (this writer, at least) because of an existential fear of Donald Trump. What if he's as ruthless as we are ???

That difficult thought is why he can't imagine it and that's probably why that column was commissioned and written at all. Timing, dontcha know.

Regarding your question at the end of the last thread, I have no idea about Sater's good guy/bad guy status.

I looked at the posts on that thread and was interested in the visits and connections.

One of the problems with all of this is that there are so MANY connections between all of these parties and banks that it requires someone a lot more savvy on this than I am.

That is why I pay attention to ChiTown, who understands this stuff and fills me in. One of the things that alerted me to how bad this situation is is that Goldman Sachs is in on the money laundering, according to that story posted in thread i linked the other day.

WASHINGTON (AP) — Border officials are aiming to more than quadruple the number of asylum seekers sent back over the southern border each day, a major expansion of a top government effort to address the swelling number of Central Americans arriving in the country, a Trump administration official said Saturday.

It was the latest attempt to ease a straining immigration system that officials say is at the breaking point. Hundreds of officers who usually screen cargo and vehicles at ports of entry were reassigned to help manage migrants. Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen asked for volunteers from non-immigration agencies within her department, sent a letter to Congress late this past week requesting resources and broader authority to deport families faster, and she met with Central American and Mexican officials.

The efforts are being made while President Donald Trump is doubling down on threats to shutter the U.S.-Mexico border entirely, a move that would have serious economic repercussions for both the U.S. and Mexico but wouldn't stop migrants from crossing between ports. His administration also announced it was cutting aid to the Central American countries home to most of the migrants. ...


What we ran:

WASHINGTON — Border officials are aiming to more than quadruple the number of asylum seekers sent back over the southern border each day, a major expansion of a top government effort to address the swelling number of Central Americans arriving in the country, a Trump administration official said Saturday.

In 1966, two radical professors devised the Cloward-Piven strategy, a political plan to overwhelm social services to change public policy. The current swell appears the latest attempt to break current immigration policy, tacitly supported by Congressional Democrats.

Rather than deal with the massive influx, Democratic leaders attempted to draw attention away from it, alleging the administration wanted to revive “horrific” and “immoral” plans, noting its border policies have created “senseless heartbreak and horror.”

“Democrats reject any effort to let the administration deport little children, and we reject all anti-immigrant and anti-family attacks from this President,” House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said in a statement. ...

Would you mind asking ChiTown lurker who he thinks is behind the Panama Papers leak? If it was a real leak it would have to be someone inside Mossack Fonseca. I’m curious to know if it was some state-level intelligence agency that hacked into Mossack Fonseca and seized the terabytes worth of data exposing the global money laundering scheme.

Tom R, because I made the claim you unwisely defended yourself and because I'm not dismissing what anyone said (including you) I think you deserve a response. After this, however? Not so much.

So . . .

For me, it's unwise because -- as I wrote -- there's no need to defend yourself here. Okay? This is not specific to you, it applies to everyone here.

If the convo has devolved into the personal, simply disinvest yourself from the convo -- especially after it's clear opinions are entrenched, styles are different, and we collectively find ourselves back at elementary school recess and allegations of "you started it, nuh uh YOU started it."

She could have been set up by a similar operation, compromising Cruz. Or, she could have been a bad actor, perhaps due to blackmail.

That is one of the $64,000 questions, isn't it? But on a certain level, it's also water under the bridge right now. The info is out, and clearly the adage to follow the money is applicable. The Panama Papers and the Paradise Papers. Everybody here should familiarize themselves with both.

To shake the tree, it appears the Trump Administration is grounding much of their strategic prosecution efforts in anti-money-laundering cases.

There will be fireworks. Banks, Bottom Bitches, functionaries caught up in the maze *will* be flipping.

Tom R

RG,

OK let’s move forward and see if everyone else will take your advice. The Panama Papers leak occurred in 2015. In the tweet you linked yesterday, DawsonSField made the point that Mueller was investigating the global money laundering scandal exposed by the Panama Papers leak.

https://twitter.com/dawsonsfield/status/1111626788243947523?s=21

For the above conjecture to be true, in 2016 prior to the election the DOJ/FBI would have had to be actively already investigating the global money laundering crimes. Comey was FBI Director at the time.

Further down, Field points out the previous connection with Comey and HSBC. He credits Comey for helping HSBC setup a money laundering detection system.

https://twitter.com/dawsonsfield/status/1111635094610079744?s=21

Do you think in 2016 Comey was directly involved in the FBI’s global money laundering investigation?

https://dailycaller.com/2019/03/30/wilford-democrats-taxes/

When drafting sweeping legislation, mistakes are bound to pop up. These are normally identified and fixed in “technical corrections” bills, or in other subsequent legislation. The Tax Cuts and Jobs Act (TCJA), a comprehensive overhaul of the nation’s tax system, has been no different. Experts have moved quickly to identify the most significant errors in the legislation and to propose quick fixes, but Democrats appear set on stamping their feet and refusing to help as a way to get back at Republicans.

At the heart of the issue is the so-called “retail glitch.” The retail glitch came out of efforts to simplify the tax code by consolidating four different types of interior building improvements which had previously been subject to long depreciation schedules into a single category: Qualified Improvement Property, or QIP. Under the TCJA, assets which had previously been subject to a depreciation schedule of 20 years or shorter were instead eligible for five years of “full expensing.”

--Umm, how exactly is it unwise to defend your opinion against personal attacks, ridicule, accusations of ignorance, idiocy, etc?--

It's unwise because, in this context, it not only doesn't work, but is counterproductive. Your defenses become part of an ongoing personal turmoil that creates a "pox on all their houses" mindset in those not involved.
My advice is to make your arguments and simply block and ignore the people who you believe engage them with the methods noted above.

Old Lurker

RG, that was good advice from you at 10:44.

Sadly it will not stick for several reasons.

First, with some people, it ain't about the "story", it is about the fight and winning the fight. The "struggle" is the goal.

Second, the problem with deploying a high energy, aggressive Socratic style is that Socrates was a "teacher", and the students knew they are "students". Forcing those roles on peers is bound to cause trouble.

Third, when the second objective of the forceful, in your face, Socratic style is to goad the student into providing an answer which can then be used immediately to explain why that student is so wrong...well that just gets old real fast.

So this one just has to be waited out until he goes away like the others before him.

OK if I am interpreting them correct Melinda and OL believe the amount of illegally laundered money that has been given to Swamp politicians from both parties reaches into the billions. No argument from me there.

RG has stated he thinks the Trump administration is grounding much of their strategic prosecution efforts in anti-money-laundering cases. Obviously 100% agreement from me with that point.

A few days back after reading DawsonSField tweet thread I made the point here that part of Trump’s “4D Chess” strategy to defeat the Swamp was to cut off their source of funding. I was ridiculed by a few people for making that point.

If it turns out that Mueller was indeed investigating the global money laundering scandal like Field believes, IMO that satisfies the demand for proof that Mueller was working with Trump and not trying to destroy him. If Mueller was trying to destroy Trump, why would he be assisting in the DOJ crackdown on the money laundering scheme that helped send billions of dollars to his fellow Swamp allies?

My confusion is WHO was investigating it?

The cutting off of money is also including the universities (free speech EO denying grants to colleges who tamp down free speech) plus the admissios lawsuit.

Like I said, if he shuts down the border that will go a long way on cutting off drug money into the Swamp.

There is probably more stuff I am not aware of. I do think it is a good idea, since these are not personal investigations, precluding Hillary and Obama claimming it is political persecution.
