Republican Senator: "Review Kushner Family Ties to Chinese Investors"



<snip>“Given all of these concerns, a closer look at Qiaowai Group and the U.S. Immigration Fund are clearly warranted, as reports suggest both companies have long employed questionable practices,” Grassley wrote.
Qiaowai and Kushner Companies are looking for investors to help finance a pair of luxury apartment buildings as part of the EB-5 Immigrant Investor Visa Program. That program offers visas in exchange for a $500,000 investment in a U.S. business.<snip>

Benedict Arnold Was NOT a Traitor...........

...........he was just setting up a back channel to Great Briton.

<snip>In 1780, Benedict Arnold was given command of West Point, the American fort on the Hudson River in New York (and future home of the United States Military Academy, established in 1802). Arnold contacted Sir Henry Clinton, head of the British forces, and proposed handing over West Point and its men. On September 21 of that year, Arnold met with British Major John Andre and made his traitorous pact, in which the American was to receive a large sum of money and a high position in the British army. However, the conspiracy was uncovered and Andre was captured and killed. <snip>

I can see the future

Flynn will turn as a witness against Jared and Trump. The noose will tighten around Jerod and many other Trump associates, including Sessions, Paige, Bannon and many others.

Republicans will start deserting Trump and tell us that "Trump was really not a Republican".

Abandoned by his party and approval ratings in the low twenties, Trump will have an Oval Office Address to the Nation, around August (how Nixonian). Trump will pardon everyone involved in the Russia scandal by name and then resign, blaming the system and the Press for not allowing him to "Make America Great Again".

This period of time will go down in history as one of America's darkest hours.

Washington Post Reporting More Details in Kushner Probe by FBI


<snip>Investigators are focusing on a series of meetings held by Jared Kushner, President Trump’s son-in-law and an influential White House adviser, as part of their probe into Russian meddling in the 2016 election and related matters, according to people familiar with the investigation.<snip.

<snip>Kushner, who held meetings in December with the Russian ambassador and a banker from Moscow , is being investigated because of the extent and nature of his interactions with the Russians, the people said.<snip>

Jared Kushner Now Under FBI Scrutiny in Russia Probe Say Officials

Source: NBC News

The FBI's scrutiny of Kushner places the bureau's sprawling counterintelligence and criminal investigation not only on the doorstep of the White House, but on the cusp of the Trump family circle. The Washington Post first reported last week that a senior White House official close to Trump was a "person of interest," but did not name the person. The term "person of interest" has no legal meaning.

Angry Netanyahu Orders Ministers to NOT Boycott Trump

<Snip>President Donald Trump’s overseas visit has hit another bump after it was revealed that Israel Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu was forced to order some government ministers and officials to attend a Monday reception for the American president after they threatened to boycott.

According to The Guardian, Netanyahu grew angry on Sunday when he learned of the boycott by some party heads and government officials after they learned of preconditions set forth by the White House.<snip>

I am Pro-Choice and Pro-Life

What? How can that be?

First off, I put that statement in that order purposely. I am Pro-choice. Unequivocally. When, whether, with whom, and under which circumstances a woman decides to give birth is her choice. Period.

Some women choose to give birth, even under the most difficult of circumstances. I also honor that choice. By honoring that choice, I have always favored cradle to grave government health insurance, for the Mother and the child. Publicly funded day care. Affordable housing. State sponsored college tuition. As a union rep, I fight for paid family leave in every contract. In short, I advocate for whatever assistance it takes to assure a healthy, loving home for every family, under any circumstances.

My wife and I have no children, yet we both hold this position. We happily paid $66,000 last year in federal, state and local taxes. We fund a local scholarship for our local High School, in my family's name. I serve, unpaid, on a local non-profit board that assists low income individuals, which also provides pre-school services for working moms.

Too many of my Conservative friends, who claim to be "pro-life" are not that at all. They are not "pro-life". They are pro-birth. After the child is born, they want to reduce government assistance and play no role as a member of society to make life easier for single mothers to care for a child.

Being pro-life is way different than being pro-birth.

That's why, I can safely say, that I am both pro-choice and pro-life.

Trump is Not Just Nixionian, but Hitlerian as Well

Donald Trump resembles former President Richard Nixon at many levels, including the firing of FBI Director Jim Comey. The removal of Comey, while investigating the President, is very reminiscent of the removal of the Special Prosecutor (as well as the AG and Deputy AG) under Nixon. The taping, or alleged taping of Comey, also harkens back to Nixon.

But the loyalty oath that Trump insisted that Comey take is even beyond Nixon and enters the realm of totalitarian dictators. It enters
the Stalin, Mao, Mussolini and Hitler arena. It should be very scary to anyone who values a republic and a Democracy.

I just finshed reading the Republicans' Health Care Bill

I don't see anything there that says that they repealed the "Death Panels".
