Knowledge of rights does not guarantee ones assurance of receiving equity and justice under the law. Judges like Prine family court 246 Harris County Texas can derail the process with deceitful unlawful gimmicks. Once done it is very difficult, complicated and expensive to correct, a fact that is not lost with judges.

Yet knowing ones rights, with persistence and patience can place various courts and judicial officials on notice that some one, some place, some time may discover their error and right their wrong.

The short of the story is to know your rights regarding the Governments obligations pertaining to due process afforded to every American by the Constitution.

The United Nations monitor on poverty and human rights has issued a devastating report on the condition of America, accusing Donald Trump and the Republican leadership in Congress of attempting to turn the country into the “world champion of extreme inequality”.
A journey through a land of extreme poverty: welcome to America
Philip Alston, the UN special rapporteur on extreme poverty and human rights, has completed a two-week official tour of the US by releasing an excoriating attack on the direction of the nation. Not only does he warn that the tax bill currently being rushed through Congress will hugely increase already large disparities between rich and poor, he accuses Trump and his party of consciously distorting the shape of American society in a “bid to become the most unequal society in the world”.
In his most stark message, Alston warns that the Republicans’ declared intent to slash crucial welfare programs next year in order to pay for some of the $1.5tn tax cuts could cost American lives. “The consequences for an already overstretched and inadequate system of social protection are likely to be fatal for many programs, and possibly also for those who rely upon them,” he writes.
Alston’s piercing findings present the Trump administration with a challenge. The charge that the US president is actively seeking to harm millions of Americans may be difficult to ignore, given that the report carries the imprimatur of the UN human rights council in Geneva.
Bernie Sanders, the US senator who has led the debate on inequality, has waded into the fray. He met the UN monitor on Friday and sounded his own alarm about the future of the country.
Sanders said that as the “wealthiest country in the history of the world” the US should be providing a model in how to treat all of its citizens with dignity. “Sadly that is not the case. We are moving into 2018 – we should not be living in a country with 41 million people living in poverty and so many more in extreme poverty, and nobody even talks about it.”
Alston invited Paul Ryan to meet him but was told the Republican speaker of the House was too busy.
Alston takes a strip out of the US for what he suggests are its double standards over human rights. The Trump administration, in line with previous US governments, preaches about human rights to other countries while refusing to be bound itself by international rules.
“The US is alone among developed countries in insisting that while human rights are of fundamental importance, they do not include rights that guard against dying of hunger, dying from a lack of access to affordable healthcare, or growing up in a context of total deprivation. But denial does not eliminate responsibility or negate obligations.”
Latest figures put the number of Americans living in poverty at 41 million – almost 13% of the population. Of those, almost half (19 million) are living in deep poverty, defined as having a total family income that is below one-half of the poverty threshold.
In a report packed with depressing evidence, the UN rapporteur tries to give a positive spin to his findings, saying that with the wealth that abounds in the US the country is in a position to solve its poverty and inequality crisis. “The persistence of extreme poverty is a political choice made by those in power. With political will, it could readily be eliminated.”
In a phrase that might reverberate around Capitol Hill and the White House, Alston concludes: “The American Dream is rapidly becoming the American Illusion since the US now has the lowest rate of social mobility of any of the rich countries.”

As President Donald Trump delivered his inaugural address, incoming-national security adviser Michael Flynn texted his former business colleague about a plan to join Russia and build nuclear reactors in the Middle East: The project was "good to go," he told them, according to a summary of a whistleblower's account provided by a lawmaker.
The business colleague who texted with Flynn later recounted that he also suggested sanctions against Russia would be "ripped up" as one of the administration’s first acts, according to the whistleblower.

tRUMP and Huckabee remain silent, but, The WH lawyer are saying that one convictions shows everyone else is innocent and only Flynn has done one little thing wrong. (Whereas in fact, other charges were dropped in order to make a plea deal to offer information and co-operate.) Pandering to tRUMP ignorant base is wrong as this is no longer, “we had nothing to do with Russia and this is a witch-hunt,” but is now2 indictments and 2 other guilty pleas with more to come. Cognitive dissonance is high, and not helping anyone, especially the country.
Flynn is saying that Trump "directed him to make contact with the Russians," ABC's Brian Ross said Friday, just moments after Flynn entered a guilty plea for lying about his contact with Russians during the presidential transition period.
Flynn pleaded guilty to lying to the FBI on Friday after being charged with one felony count in special counsel Robert Mueller's probe into Russian interference in the 2016 election.

"I pleaded guilty to 7 crimes. Defrauding the United States. IEEPA violations. Money laundering. Bank fraud. Conspiracy to commit bank fraud. Paying bribe to a federal prison guard." –Zarrab. And in testimony he said he had help from the man who was then Turkey's economic minister, Mehmet Zafer Caglayan. "He said, 'I can broker this providing there is a profit share — 50-50,'" Zarrab told the jury.
Prosecutors showed jurors a tidy spreadsheet that Zarrab said was a partial list of bribes he paid to Caglayan, who is under indictment but not on trial because he is still in Turkey. The numbers were massive: 31 million Euros, $4 million in U.S. dollars and 2.4 million Turkish lira.
But not all payments were listed, Zarrab said, who estimated that the total he gave Caglayan was more than $60 million.

It seems that Ivanka defrauded a lot of people when she made false claims in Panama and Azerbaijan. She did it on video, so there will be proof, but I suppose she felt it was fine as it was not Americans? What a bunch of sleazy snake oil salesmen and grifters in that disgusting family! The person who sold the apartments was an admitted money laundererand both places are renowned for cheating and corruption. tRUMP and his organization did not do due diligence on the properties (the guy made false assurances and triple sold some condos/apartments) Ivanka and Trump’s sons appeared in public at launch events for the tower, made promotional videos for the project and managed the Trump involvement.
Listed as director of four Trump Ocean investment companies was Igor Anopolskiy, who in 2007 was Homes Real Estate’s representative in Kiev. Police records state he was arrested in March of that year for suspected people trafficking. Released a year later on bail, he was re-arrested in 2013, and in 2014 a Ukraine court handed Anopolskiy a five-year suspended jail sentence with three years’ probation for offenses including people smuggling and forgery, unrelated to the Trump project.
It was a Colombian businessman named David Murcia Guzman who triggered Nogueira’s downfall. Murcia was indicted in November 2008 for money laundering, first in Colombia and then in the United States. Murcia was sentenced to nine years in prison in the United States for conspiracy to launder drug money. After serving six years, he is expected to be deported to Colombia, his attorney, Robert Abreu, said. Colombia’s government said Murcia will serve a 22-year prison term upon his return for offenses including money laundering. There is much more to read about the corruption and money laundering and Russians, so hopefully someone on Mueller’s team can unravel the disgusting mess of a “deal.”

"Special counsel Robert Mueller’s team in mid-October issued a subpoena to President Donald Trump’s campaign requesting Russia-related documents from more than a dozen top officials, according to a person familiar with the matter."
Meuller has again requested more documents from Kushner, but this time via a subpoena, being Kushner has been less than helpful in handing all of his Russia related emails and documents to the investigation. One of the missing documents was a message referencing a “Russian backdoor overture and dinner invite” as well as wikileaks contacts and a meeting with a Russian and more which were requested and not turned over.
The source familiar with Kushner's document production said his team made clear to the committee that they were starting with documents he's provided to other congressional committees and were going to subsequently exchange other information. Got that? Jared is in charge of so many huge portfolios in the administration!

Four people familiar with the investigation said Mueller is looking into whether Flynn discussed in the late December meeting orchestrating the return to Turkey of a chief rival of Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan who lives in the U.S. Additionally, three people familiar with the probe said investigators are examining whether Flynn and other participants discussed a way to free a Turkish-Iranian gold trader, Reza Zarrab, who is jailed in the U.S. Zarrab is facing federal charges that he helped Iran skirt U.S. sanctions. Flynn was offered upwards of $15 million, to be paid directly or indirectly, if he could complete the deal, according to two sources familiar with the meeting.

The New York Times reported that Giuliani met with Erdoğan in late February and discussed an agreement under which Zarrab would be freed in exchange for Turkey's help furthering U.S. interests in the region.
We are perhaps seeing why Guiliani did not have a job in the white house. Rudy has numerous “friends” in the rogue NY FBI office who likely told him Flynn and his Turkish deal we “overheard.”

Nearly 100 Pages of Financial Doc. Shows Trump Took Money From Russian Money Laundering Bank During Election. These papers clearly indicate that Trump is in fact directly profiting from the presidency. This is in direct violation of the Emoluments Clause of the Constitution. It also shows proof that he is largely in debt to foreign and domestic banks, but it points to one Russian detail that is very significant.
These documents reveal a deeply interesting detail regarding the Russia scandal. German-based Deutsche Bank was recently busted for laundering Russian money into clients’ hands in places such as New York City.
This bank has also floated a long-term loan of two (or try four) to Trump. These “loans” are under questionable circumstances at best and very well could be Russian money that’s been handed to Trump in return for something else.

Russian investor Yuri Milner’s partial backing by Russian state interests may also cause difficulties for Kushner. Milner contributed $850,000 from his family trust to a $50m investment in Cadre, a New-York-based company that Kushner co-founded in 2014 with his brother, Joshua, and a friend of theirs from Harvard. The startup, which the Kushners claim is worth $800m, is based around an online marketplace where wealthy financiers can club together to invest in properties.
Cadre has attracted an estimated $133m of venture capital from backers including Peter Thiel, the controversial libertarian billionaire who co-founded PayPal and backed Trump’s campaign for president in 2016.

Wilbur Ross business links with Putin family detailed in leaked documents. Although Ross DID push out some Russians on the Bank of Cypress board, it was because they were inept, not because he did not want to work with Russians. Do not be fooled. The Seychelles, Cyprus bank and Sberbank and money laundering are connected. One of Ross’s first decisions at the bank was to appointment of former Deutsche Bank chief executive Josef Ackermann as chairman. Ackermann’s ties to Russia were especially strong, including a warm relationship with Putin and Herman Gref of Sberbank.
Leaked documents and public filings show that Ross holds a stake in a shipping company, Navigator, through a chain of offshore investments. Navigator operates a lucrative partnership with Sibur, a Russian gas company part-owned by Kirill Shamalov, the husband of Putin’s daughter Katerina Tikhonova.

Everyone should herald it criminals of all stripes, if they are dirty and caught in the investigations! They need to be outed and ousted. Here is the problem now though; Nunes and Gowdy are going tolook for nasty stuff to detract and deflect, and block Dems from getting to more dirt.

One example: There is no way Kushner should have been allowed to walk out whenever he felt like it, on Gowdy's suggestion, before the Dems were done asking questions. THAT should be obstruction of justice. We need to know why he was setting up a back channel and why he chose to do it on Russian soil and with whom he was doing so. And why was he talking to Russian banks, when he clearly is in horrible debt for his 666 building that he overpaid for and might just be willing to do anything to reduce that debt for as well.
I am curious that Chaffetz left early. Did he find something that incriminated the GOP... or himself, being he scurried away like a rat ?

tRUMP, rather than doing something about the Russian election interference, is going off on a tangent of his own. Fox and the RWNJ media are in a frenzy trying to protect tRUMP… so the fake news is trending and no real news ever gets through. “Positive” tRUMP and “negative” Hillary is the fake news raging on on FOX… The Uranium deal was real, sounds awful … truly, but Hillary did not sign off on it, 9 member of different government organizations did and that some names matched donors to the her foundation are true, but she also she met with every other country’s heads of state in her job and unlike tRUMP, the Clinton’s charity money was third party audited and millions were put INTO the foundation by the Clintons … not taken out like with tRUMP and his fraudulent foundation still frozen for its fraudulent use by Eric and Donald. No Uranium left the states. It is also well known that the “peepee tape dossier” was commissioned by one of tRUMP’s competition… perhaps Cruz…so that “scandal “ is a hoot.

Should Manafort refuse to testify before the senate, he will be subpoenaed. This is news because Republican senators are not co-operating and neither is Manafort. Grassley and the GOP gang are being obstructionists and I hope Muelller knows this, because when interfering and obstruction occurs in a criminal matter, it is obstruction of justice.
Being the FBI had to have a raid on Manafort’s home as he was reluctant to hand over documents, it would be wise to do this as soon as possible. Manafort is intending to continue his mercenary habits and leave the country, even though he is under investigation.

How to read Mueller’s hand: Regardless of what charges are ultimately brought, you can expect them to be carefully considered and limited to what Mueller can readily prove. Proving criminal charges beyond a reasonable doubt to a jury is a weighty burden, and a veteran prosecutor like Mueller will not bring charges unless he is confident he can prove them.

Brad Parscale and Kushner were the data guys so that may be why we have not heard a peeep from Kushner lately…
A warrant has been issued to investigate the Facebook ads/event and trolling. Mariotti said that the Facebook warrant “means that Mueller has concluded that specific foreign individuals committed a crime by making a ‘contribution’ in connection with an election. It also means that he has evidence of that crime that convinced a federal magistrate judge of two things: first, that there was good reason to believe that the foreign individual committed the crime. Second, that evidence of the crime existed on Facebook.”
The implications for Trump campaign staffers are not good, given that the targeted ads bought by foreign interests were geographically targeted to very specific regions where polling showed Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton was vulnerable.

*UPDATED Sept12/ 17
On December 2, 2015, during an interview with an Associated Press reporter, Trump was asked about his relationship with a fellow named Felix Sater. Trump, who was then the front-runner in the GOP presidential nomination contest, replied, “Felix Sater, boy, I have to even think about it. I’m not that familiar with him.” He referred questions to his Trump Organization. One of his lawyers, Alan Garten, subsequently told the AP that Sater once prospected for real estate deals for the Trump Organization and that the arrangement lasted for six months in 2010.

What neither Trump nor Garten said was that—at that very moment—Trump was in the middle of the deal to build a Trump Tower in the Russian capital and that Sater had put together the venture. As he was running for president, Trump was hiding this project from the American public, and he was insisting he barely knew the man at the center of it. This was serious deceit

Trump was defending a repressive leader—but one with whom he was trying to do business in private. Throughout the 2016 election, people wondered why Trump consistently made oddly positive remarks about Putin. Part of the answer is clear: You cannot develop major construction projects in Moscow if you criticize Putin.

A draft of the letter tRUMP made and gave to Rosenstein and Sessions is in Mueller’s hands. It may have significance depending on the context.

Keith Schiller, tRUMP’s bodyguard who delivered the letter to Comey while Comey was out of town says he will quit in Sept. Odd timing as usual.

Mass pardons of all suspects in the Russia case would not close the door to potential prosecutions. While presidential pardons can halt the federal case, local prosecutors could then pursue any Americans suspected of aiding Russia’s election meddling. In fact, legal experts say presidential pardons could make that prospect more likely.

tRUMP signed a letter of intent to build a tRUMP tower in Moscow, Even though the deal fell through, the underlying aspects of the deal could be to curry favours for a Putin loan.

Again that alone would be enough for impeachment like the last dozen things but I will not be holding my breath.

Money laundering, self-dealing, offshore holdings, fraud, multiple shell companies in multiple countries were all blatantly apparent with even a minimal check… and tRUMP will deny it all saying that he did not know. But he was a part of it all and did not do due his diligence. How is it possible that a man who insists he makes the best deals, is an excellent businessman and has a “veruy good brain” be that incompetent? By closing his eyes of course. So many partners of the Trump Organization have been fined, sued, or criminally investigated for financial crimes that it is hard to ascribe the pattern to coincidence, or even to shoddy due diligence.

In tweet storm, Trump decries 'illegal leaks' and asserts ‘all agree’ he has complete power to pardon. So it isn’t about the family being guilty, it is about the leaks… All his staff and lawyers agree? Then they are about to find out that no one can aid and abet a criminal.

Manafort has refused to cooperate, according to his lawyer, so is likely not the source of leaks, which means Flynn likely turned being he was so eager to make a statement and tRUMP was so eager to protect him. Preet Bharara was investigating Manafort when he was fired. What a coincidence hmmm? In 1989 Manafort was charged with influence peddling, so he may want to start cooperating…

A POLITICO reporter visiting the nondescript office building where all of these companies are headquartered found that the suite linked to Agalarov and Kaveladze was empty, with unopened mail sitting by the door. A sign in the lobby indicated that the suite belonged to IBC and Russian Art Mall, which was founded in 2000 and registered to Emin Agalarov, who is a partner in his father’s business.

Gates was Manafort’s partner/assistant for a long time, since the Roger Stone partnership. Mr. Gates had read news reports of Mr. Deripaska’s problems with the State Department, but said he was not overly troubled by them. Mr. Deripaska had recommended the firm, Dr. K. Chrysostomides & Co. Five shell companies were set up to facilitate anticipated business deals with Mr. Deripaska; four others were for payments received for political consulting services in Ukraine, he said. Cyprus has long been a popular tax haven for Russian oligarchs and businesses.

The result of the G20 was that Putin won everything he wanted. tRUMP accepted Putin saying Russia had nothing to do with interference, made a pact for a joint cyber security task force (ludicrous) and another pact saying they would not interfere with domestic affairs. tRUMP can care less that Putin kills journalists and opposition and jails dissenters, and that Putin wants to “annex” more than Crimea. This proves tRUMP is easily manipulated, does not care about election interference, would blindly accept Putin’s word over the Intelligence community and would betray his fellow Americans.

By the time Michael Flynn was fired as President Donald Trump’s national security adviser in February, he had made a lot of bad decisions. One was taking money from the Russians (and failing to disclose it); another was taking money under the table from the Turks. But an overlooked line in his financial disclosure form, which he was forced to amend to detail those foreign payments, reveals he was also involved in one of the most audacious—and some say harebrained—schemes in recent memory: a plan to build scores of U.S. nuclear power plants in the Middle East. As a safety measure.

“There’s two people I think Putin pays: Rohrabacher and Trump,” McCarthy (R-Calif.) said, according to a recording of the June 15, 2016, exchange, which was listened to and verified by The Washington Post. Rep. Dana Rohrabacher is a Californian Republican known in Congress as a fervent defender of Putin and Russia. House Speaker Paul D. Ryan (R-Wis.) immediately interjected, stopping the conversation from further exploring McCarthy’s assertion, and swore the Republicans present to secrecy.

WTF moment in history… President Trump revealed highly classified information to the Russian foreign minister and ambassador in a White House meeting last week, according to current and former U.S. officials, who said that Trump’s disclosures jeopardized a critical source of intelligence on the Islamic State.
The information Trump relayed had been provided by a U.S. partner through an intelligence-sharing arrangement considered so sensitive that details have been withheld from allies and tightly restricted even within the U.S. government, officials said.
The partner had not given the United States permission to share the material with Russia, and officials said that Trump’s decision to do so risks cooperation from an ally that has access to the inner workings of the Islamic State. After Trump’s meeting, senior White House officials took steps to contain the damage, placing calls to the CIA and National Security Agency.

“This is code-word information,” said a U.S. official familiar with the matter, using terminology that refers to one of the highest classification levels used by American spy agencies. Trump “revealed more information to the Russian ambassador than we have shared with our own allies.”

Sally Yates testified today. Russians knew Flynn misled VP Mike Pence and others about his conduct, says Sally Yates. Also, a reminder that the security clearance given to Flynn during the Obama administration was a lower level clearance. The Clearance for a high level position such as a National Security adviser should have been stringent. Pence is complicit as he was in charge of vetting since January. Spicer was continued to blame Obama even after the hearings. In spite of the proof, tRUMP continues to insist that this is a hoax by Democrats. One need only read about Manafort... and his past to see this is not fake news.

Yates says the more the "explanation" Flynn gave, it became an increasing series of lies that would create "even more compromise." McGann, WH counsel saying what does it matter if one WH official lies to another WH official. (Remember Pence was in charge of vetting) A national security breach being okay with everyone in the WH is nothing short of appalling,

ANALYTICA : This article is long, but does some connecting of many on tRUMP's campaign to Brexit and the use of PSYOPs and Facebook harvested personal information to frighten and sway voters.
"A map shown to the Observer showing the many places in the world where SCL and Cambridge Analytica have worked includes Russia, Lithuania, Latvia, Ukraine, Iran and Moldova. Multiple Cambridge Analytica sources have revealed other links to Russia, including trips to the country, meetings with executives from Russian state-owned companies, and references by SCL employees to working for Russian entities.

Article 50 has been triggered. AggregateIQ is outside British jurisdiction. The Electoral Commission is powerless. And another election, with these same rules, is just a month away. It is not that the authorities don’t know there is cause for concern. The Observer has learned that the Crown Prosecution Service did appoint a special prosecutor to assess whether there was a case for a criminal investigation into whether campaign finance laws were broken. The CPS referred it back to the electoral commission. Someone close to the intelligence select committee tells me that “work is being done” on potential Russian interference in the referendum.

Giuliani, a former New York City mayor who had acted as a surrogate for Mr. Trump during his campaign, and another prominent lawyer, Michael B. Mukasey, who served as attorney general in President George W. Bush’s administration.
The purpose of the visit by Mr. Giuliani and Mr. Mukasey was rather extraordinary: They hoped to reach a diplomatic deal under which Turkey might further aid the United States’ interests in the region. In return, the United States might release the two men’s client, Reza Zarrab, a Turkish gold trader being held in a Manhattan jail whose case had attracted Mr. Erdogan’s interest.

The Foreign Corrupt Practices Act “makes it a crime for an American company to unknowingly benefit from a partner’s corruption if it could have discovered illicit activity but avoided doing so. This closed what was known as the “head in the sand” loophole. As a result, American companies must examine potential foreign partners very carefully before making deals with them.”

**UPDATED Oct 31st There seems to be secret communication between tRUMP and Russia. I hope that the communications are made public before the election. Was a Trump server communicating with a Russian bank? These cyber experts believe so: http://www.slate.com/articles/news_and_politics/cover_story/2016/10/was_a_server_registered_to_the_trump_organization_communicating_with_russia.html?wpsrc=sh_all_dt_tw_bot via @slate
A Republican lobbyist was earning hundreds of thousands of dollars to promote one of Vladimir Putin’s top geopolitical priorities at the same time he was helping to shape Donald Trump’s first major foreign policy speech.

**UPDATED Oct 23rd tRUMP says Putin called him brilliant and a genius, but Putin said bright and colourful, meaning more of a court jester or clown. tRUMP is trying to get this Russian thing out of the press's head, but tRUMP has NYC mob ties as well as Russian mob ties.

Redditers are saying they pretended to be KBG so the Russian thing was faked by them, which is laughable as we weren't fooled by their stupid names saying, literally"KGB" and changing to KGB deplorable. ffs how stupid are they to think we believed Russian imitators would state they are KGB - rolls eyes) But, a few wearing cowboy hats (and guns and God) on their profile had really backwards sentences likely were.

**One thing that might be related (my speculation) is that Manafort and many of tRUMP's people are attached to Putin and Ukraine. Putin had a huge influence on social media and Ukraine from 2008 on.... so how much was Manafort or one of the other "advisors" attached to that network? The effect of the Russians and white nationalists in the UK Brexit was apparent as well. (As of May 5th, there are 42 names on the list of people on tRUMP's team with Russian contacts. Of course not all are guilty of collusion, but money laundering may well have been involved as well as the Russian mafia. This is being shoveled under a carpet by the oversight committee, so an independent investigation is necessary)

Carter Page once worked at pentagon and had business dealings in Russia and more:
"In 2000, Page took up investment banking...at Merrill Lynch...in London...after (developing a) relationship with Victor Pinchuk, a Ukrainian billionaire, he...was dispatched to...the firm’s Moscow office in 2004.
In Russia, Carter Page developed relationships with executives at Gazprom...he took a buyout from Merrill in 2008 to start his own firm, known as Global Energy Capital LLC, Since then, Page says he’s mostly done low-profile advisory assignments, such as counseling foreign investors on buying assets in Russia...
Carter Page insists, “He understands what's going on in Russia..” Besides drying up some of his potential deals, the sanctions*** have hurt Page in other ways..."
( Conflict of interest for sure there for Page and we need to know if tRUMP has any business conx he may be lying about, especially as Eric said millions are flowing in from Russia. Where the hell is it then and is tRUMP also indebted to Russia or their mob?)

Sept 24th story Carter Page: The tRUMP campaign has disavowed any role of page, saying “We are not aware of any of his activities, past or present.” However, back in March, "in a recorded meeting with The Washington Post editorial board, Trump named Page as one of five members of his foreign policy team. Page, a former energy executive in Russia, described himself an expert on the Caspian Sea region and economic development in former Soviet states."

At the same time, Manafort understood how to accentuate divisions in the Ukrainian electorate. He had overseen Reagan’s Southern strategy; he understood the power of cultural polarization. His polling showed that Yanukovych could consolidate his base by stoking submerged grievances. Even though there was little evidence of the mistreatment of Russian language speakers by the Ukrainian state, he encouraged his candidate to make an issue of imagined abuses to rally their base. To the same end, he instructed Yanukovych to rage against NATO, which he did by condemning joint operations the alliance was conducting in Crimea.

I HAVE NOTHING TO DO WITH RUSSIA – NO DEALS, NO LOANS, NO NOTHING!”

Jan 11, 2017: Trump’s tweet.

DONALD TRUMP JR.: “RUSSIANS MAKE UP A PRETTY DISPROPORTIONATE CROSS-SECTION OF A LOT OF OUR ASSETS. WE SEE A LOT OF MONEY POURING IN FROM RUSSIA.”

2008: Donald Trump Jr.’s quote from eTurboNews a real-estate trade publication.



“I have no relationship with Putin.”

“I do have a relationship.”

“I have nothing to do with Putin. I've never spoken to him.”

“I spoke indirectly and directly with President Putin who could not have been nicer.”

“I have nothing to do with Russia. I told you, I have no deals there.”

“I was in Moscow a couple of months ago. I own the Miss Universe pageant.”

“I don't know Putin. I have no idea. I've never met Putin. This is not my best friend.”

“They treated me so great. Putin even sent me a present. Beautiful present with a beautiful note.”

“Just so you understand, he said very nice things about me. But I have no relationship with him. I don't -- I've never met him.”

“I got to know him very well because we were both on '60 Minutes,' we were stablemates.”

“I don't know anything about him other than he will respect me…”

Dearest König Goethe Von Eríks tír Connaille,

This early morn’ lifted from the earth enfloral, the clarity of meine loneliness Her flower, coursed The Eye Of Her Turquoise no longer by quotidian name, I loitered Heaven unseen, as I so often dream of your lovely daughter afloat The Solar Song within the corals of The Skie.

In meine solitary flight, thus I have taken the wind to circle Her Heart, high above as Her Eagle Adonaiis so by TAOS SKYCITY ever sail, now fall from the mirror of Her mind ¡ Lucifer Estreilla ! alight upon your desk I let now fall Her name “God’s Only Rose”. By translation of these early efforts ever towards your daughter’s enduring Aría, I am no longer rumor of Her verse, wherein swims the phonem of Her voice, meine Lord you are, She is “The Bimini Trail.”

IS LIBERALISM KILLING THE MANLY MAN..? Here’s the problem with the modern, liberal man — he can never fully provide that sense of security for his family, because he doesn’t believe that he can provide it for himself. Every manly icon the West has ever admired has embodied the very spirit of American independence. If liberalism bred manliness, our heroes would sound a little different: “Seeing that bell ring, and I’m still standing. All I want to do is go the distance… but only if the commission gives me a handicap” – Rocky Balboa
“Accept the challenges so that you can feel the exhilaration of victory… though it’s easier with subsidies.” – General George Patton
“They may take our lives, but they’ll never take our freedom! … also, we’ll try for dental.” – William Wallace
The truth is, that the spirit of the great American man is dying. In the age of entitlement mindsets and a perpetually defeatist attitude, if we don’t pro-actively pass the concept of independent self-reliance on to our children it could be lost forever. – “They’ll be doomed for a life dominated by doubt” – Santa Claus
Now Santa was a real man. I bet he was beating dames off with a stick.
Liberals don’t believe in the ultimate concept of self-reliance, which is why they look to the government for stability. Extravagant welfare programs, the near impossibility of getting fired on the public dole and an increasingly complicated tax code are all products of the same deeply rooted concept that man cannot provide for himself.
Liberals simply believe that man is not good enough. Indomitable spirits be damned! That’s why most college students are liberal. Living on a diet of Kraft Dinners and Mountain Dew would make anyone yearn for somebody else to step in and take the reins. Instead of looking to a dietician they reach for Uncle Sam .
When a child can see this belief in his dad’s world view, it makes him uneasy to the core. Words like “Everything’s going to be okay” ring completely hollow because children understand that daddy doesn’t even believe himself that he can make everything okay. That’s why daddy he votes for Democrats.
Is liberalism killing the real, masculine male? It seems that way. Keep in mind here, that when I say “man,” I’m not talking about the clichéd embodiment of false machismo who throws back macro-brews, chases skirts and scratches himself in public. By “real” I don’t mean someone who has to be tough, brawny or even rough around the edges.
I’m speaking about the ideal of manhood that young boys have upheld in their hearts and minds for generations. I’m speaking of course… of Matlock. The man could car chase like it was nobody’s business.
In all seriousness, my father (like most fathers) always taught me that a man is someone who stands by his principles, someone who lives with integrity and puts his family before himself. That last one is important, because as a young boy, it’s your pops who provides you with security.
The financial, emotional, even physical security of the son rests squarely on the shoulders of his father. What could possibly be more manly than providing all of the above for your kin? Maybe bear-wrestling, but legally I’m not allowed to endorse it. Though I think you know where I stand. 😉

"The history of all previous societies has been the history of class struggles."

"Let the ruling classes tremble at a communistic revolution. The proletarians have nothing to lose but their chains. They have a world to win." - Karl Marx

"The only thing that keeps the working classes from taking control of society is the illusion of power that the ruling classes have hold over them. If they can break through that, the game is over for the capitalist war mongers that are destroying our planet." - Kent Allen Halliburton

Throughout history, humans have organized themselves hierarchically. Whether they have done so using religion, economics, war, or some other method, humans have always found ways to organize themselves into series of layered social classes. In the twenty-first century this has not changed. The present primary social classification on Earth is Economics, with the wealthy resting easily at the top of society, while the poor endure ever increasing hardship at the bottom of society. Society is divided basically into four divisions: Economic Elites, Whites Collar Workers, Blue Collar Workers, and the poor, or Red Collar Workers. The Economic Elites own the means of production, the White Collar Workers manage the means of productions, the Blue Collar Workers maintain the functionality of the means of production, and the Red Collar Workers provide for the needs of everyone else while they are working; but, does it work?

Economic Elites

According to a 2013 Economic Policy Institute report, to be in the top one percent nationally, a family needs an income of $389,436. However, the threshold varies significantly among states. In Connecticut, for example, you need an annual income of $659,979 to be in the one percent. In New Mexico, it's $231,276.

Keep in mind that these numbers just represent the threshold. The average income of the top one percent nationwide is $1.15 million.

People in the rest of the nation, on the other hand, earn an average of $45,567 a year. That means that, in 2013, the top one percent of families earned 25.3 times as much income as the bottom 99 percent, according to the EPI report.

White Collar Workers

In many countries, such as Australia, Canada, Denmark, France, New Zealand, the United Kingdom, as well as, the United States, a white-collar worker is a person who performs professional, managerial, or administrative work. White-collar work may be performed in an office or other administrative setting. White Collar Workers are tasked specifically with managing the means of production owned by the Social Elites.

The term refers to the white dress shirts of male office workers common through most of the nineteenth and twentieth centuries in Western countries, as opposed to the blue overalls worn by many manual laborers. The term 'white collar' is credited to Upton Sinclair, an American writer, in relation to contemporary clerical, administrative, and management workers during the 1930s, though references to white-collar work appear as early as 1935.

Blue Collar Workers

A blue-collar worker is a working class person who performs non-agricultural manual labour. Blue-collar work may involve skilled or unskilled manufacturing, mining, sanitation, custodial work, oil field work, construction, mechanic, maintenance, warehousing, firefighting, technical installation and many other types of physical work. Often something is physically being built or maintained. Blue-collar work is often paid hourly wage-labor, although some professionals may be paid by the project or salaried. There is a wide range of payscales for such work depending upon field of specialty and experience

The term blue-collar stems from the image of manual workers wearing blue denim or chambray shirts as part of their uniforms. Industrial and manual workers often wear durable canvas or cotton clothing that may be soiled during the course of their work. Navy and light blue colors conceal potential dirt or grease on the worker's clothing, helping him or her to appear cleaner. For the same reason, blue is a popular color for boiler-suits, which protect a worker's clothing. Some blue collar workers have uniforms with the name of the business and/or the individual's name embroidered or printed on it.

Historically the popularity of the color blue among manual laborers contrasts with the popularity of white dress shirts worn by people in office environments. The blue collar/white collar color scheme has socio-economic class connotations. The primary assignment of Blue Collar Workers is to maintain the means of production managed by the White Collar Workers and owned by the Social Elites.

Red Collar Workers

In communist nations like China and Vietnam, a Red Collar Worker refers to a person in the employ of the government. However, this is not China or Vietnam and we are being forced to endure a broken capitalist economic system, at least for now. As such, a Red Collar Worker in the United States will refer to any worker who is subject to work at or below minimum wage for forty or fewer hours a week, effectively ensuring that they and their family will live at or beneath the poverty line and depend on public welfare for survival. Red Collar Workers are also not limited to working in a single industry. They can be found in the service industry, they can be found working as day laborers, they can be found working in factories; and as the American economy continues to mechanize and shift other good paying jobs overseas, more and more industries will shift to this model, so they will be will found in more and more places all throughout the economy. The primary purpose of Red Collar Workers is to service the needs of the socioeconomic classes above them.

In most circles, Red Collar Workers are simply referred to as the poor. Sometimes they may at least be given enough respect to be referred to as the Working Poor, but never Red Collar Workers. No proper respect is given to the individuals who form the very foundation of society. What would happen if they refused to work for poverty wages in fast food restaurants around the country? What would happen if they turned in their aprons and refused to continue waiting tables for under minimum wage? What would happen if they put down their smocks, went home, and refused to continue being treated like chattel in grocery stores, gas stations, and department stores? What would happen if they refused to continue cleaning public bathrooms and private homes for less than sufficient pay? What would happen if day laborers suddenly stopped showing up for daily tasks that pay poverty wages? Collectively, everything above them would fall apart. It is as simple as that. So, while everyone above them takes it for granted that a Red Collar Worker requires little training to do their job, they need to take heed of the fact that Red Collar Workers are what keep society functioning; and that is huge a cross to bear. Without them, without that foundation, society will falter.

New Hierarchy

Ultimately, this breakdown is precisely what needs to happen. Red Collar Workers all over the world need to become aware of the power that they possess and use it against the people above them. They need to realize that they dramatically outnumber their 'social betters.' They need to collectivize, take control of the means of production, redistribute wealth, and organize humanity into a more egalitarian society. The social science term for this process is proletarianization. Ultimately, this is not something that will take place over night, and it is not something that will be done easily. Their will, of course, be heavy resistance from all sectors of society and violence will likely be unavoidable; but ultimately, a new society will be born in which workers will own shares in the companies that they work for, and thus, will have a say in how the company is run. The lines between class division will then be blurred as profitable economic opportunities open up to more and more people. Finally, as money disappears as a problem, self-improvement will become the key to advancing in social rank. Painters, Singers, Athletes, Musicians, Engineers, Academics, and the like; these types will be the people that will top humanities' social ladders. Perhaps, then, humanity will be able to save what is left of its home planet and develop itself into a truly global, beautiful, and inclusive culture. Just imagine, if you can, a human society that favors culture over wealth.

Theresa Harris (1906 – 1985)

Theresa Harris was an American television and film actress, singer and dancer. Harris was born on New Year's Eve 1906 (some sources indicate 1909) in Houston, Texas to Isaiah (1879–1956) and Mable (1883–1964) Harris, both of whom were former sharecroppers from Louisiana. Harris' family relocated to Southern California when she was 11 years old. After graduating Jefferson High School, she studied at the UCLA Conservatory of Music and Zoellner's Conservatory of Music. She then joined the African American musical comedy theatre troupe, the Lafayette Players.

In 1929, she traveled to Hollywood where she embarked on an acting career. She made her film debut in Thunderbolt, singing the song "Daddy Won't You Please Come Home". As she entered the 1930s she found herself playing maids to fictitious Southern belles, socialites and female molls played by such actresses as Ginger Rogers, Bette Davis, Sylvia Sidney, Frances Dee, Myrna Loy, Jean Harlow, Esther Williams, Thelma Todd, Kay Francis, and Barbara Stanwyck. These parts, however, were sometimes uncredited. She also floated around studios doing bit-parts, usually at Warner Bros. or Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer. Aside from maids, she also specialized in playing blues singers, waitresses, tribal women, prostitutes, and hat check girls.

Harris had a featured role as a friend of Jean Harlow in MGM's Hold Your Man (1932), also starring Clark Gable. In 1933, she starred as Chico in the Warner Bros. Pre-code production of Baby Face, starring Barbara Stanwyck. That same year, Harris starred in a substantial role opposite Ginger Rogers in Professional Sweetheart. As Rogers' character's maid, Harris' character subs for Rogers' character as a singer on the radio. Despite the fact that Harris' character was a major point for the story's plot development, she was uncredited for the role.

Throughout the 1930s, Harris played many uncredited parts in films such as Horse Feathers (1932), Gold Diggers of 1933 (1933), Mary Stevens, M.D. (1933) and Morning Glory (1933). She also played Bette Davis's maid Zette in the film Jezebel (1938). In 1937, she appeared in the race film Bargain With Bullets opposite Ralph Cooper for Million Dollar Productions which was owned by Cooper. While doing promotion for the film, Harris spoke about her frustration over the difficulty African American actors faced in the film industry stating, "I never had the chance to rise about the role of maid in Hollywood movies. My color was against me anyway you looked at it. The fact that I was not "hot" stamped me either as uppity or relegated me to the eternal role of stooge or servant. My ambition is to be an actress. Hollywood had no parts for me." She also praised Ralph Cooper for starting a production company that produced films starring African American actors. She said, "We have nothing to lose in the development of an all-colored motion picture company. The competition will make Hollywood perk up and produce better films with our people in a variety of roles."

Harris continued to lobby for better parts but found few opportunities within Hollywood. In the 1939 movie, "Tell No Tales" she was credited for her part as Ruby, the wife of a murdered man. Harris played an emotional scene with Melvin Douglas at the funeral. She appears in a small but vivid role as Kathie Moffat's ex-maid Eunice Leonard in Jacques Tourneurs 1947 Out of the Past. In addition to films, Harris also performed in many radio programs including Hollywood Hotel. Harris was often paired with Eddie Rochester Anderson, who portrayed her on-screen boyfriend. They appeared together in Buck Benny Rides Again (1940) and What's Buzzin' Cousin (1943). In Buck Benny Rides Again, Harris and Anderson performed the musical number, "My, My," where they sing and dance tap, classical, Spanish, and swing. She also appeared in several prominent roles for RKO Pictures as she was a favorite of RKO producer Val Lewton who routinely cast African American actors in non-stereotypical roles. In 1942, Lewton cast Harris as a sarcastic waitress in Cat People, followed by roles in I Walked with a Zombie (1943), Phantom Lady (1944), and Strange Illusion (1945).

During the 1950s, Harris appeared several times on television on such shows as Lux Video Theatre, Alfred Hitchcock Presents, and Letter to Loretta. She made her last film appearance in an uncredited role in The Gift of Love in 1958. Harris later married a doctor and retired from acting, living comfortably after having carefully invested the money she made during her career in the movies.

On October 8, 1985, Harris (then known as Theresa Robinson) died of undisclosed causes in Inglewood, California. She was buried in Angelus-Rosedale Cemetery in Los Angeles, California.

In 1974, she was inducted into the Black Filmmaker's Hall of Fame.
