Thank you!

"..for anyone who values the advancement of human beings, you simply don't participate in local religious traditions that discriminate and denigrate any category of people."


All three Abrahamic religions have historically devalued women; in fact, the fall of man is placed right at the feet of Eve, a perfect indication of the role women will play in the religions.

It was a bad call.

I've always respected President Obama but he and VP Biden made the wrong call there.

Fox Lies should not have our government intimidated as they did. If the roles had been reversed, the Republicans would not have hesitated to have gone public with evidence.

There has been lots of info in public sight too, like...

The Bayrock entry on Wiki.

TRump is up to his yingyang in mob and Russian and former Russian satellite money.

THIS! Thanks L. C. for posting this.

This was Rachel's show 01/15/18 that I posted a YT of. That video worked well for about 2 hrs but thereafter it was cut to 3 seconds.

There was a 2nd video of this that was also cut to mere seconds. Weird.

THIS is such important info and made me so livid that I wanted everyone to listen. TRump is nothing more than a dirty crook who is involved in HUGE international money laundering schemes with some of the most ruthless cutthroats on the planet.

He cannot make money honestly.

His claims of ownership of many properties is not true although he does admit he "leases" his name to bring "prestige" to corporations who do own most of these properties. He counts this "Brand licensing" money as part of his wealth.

Most of these corporations have now removed the Trump logos on the properties and have stopped paying Trump.

I bet by the time this nightmare of a presidency is over and his wealth revealed, he will not be a billionaire. Besides, trying to keep himself and family members out prison will cost him plenty. Wonder if his attorneys are wisely asking for payments up front?

Rachel's full show 01/15/18

She unwrapped quite a bit of troubling info tonight, mainly TRump's involvement in international money laundering. "Follow the money."

On EDIT: this original YT video does not give the full show now...strange that YT had several Rachel vids that worked last night that now do not. 😵

BUT you can listen here:


Sorry folks.

Wow. China has destroyed most its own forests and

wildlife. That's why they have to import timber from us. And since they do not respect animals as we do, I suspect they'll drive what's left of Africa's magnificent wildlife to extinction.

I googled and found an interesting and relevant article from a couple of years ago (I hope its premise is true):

Chinese firms buy, lease far less African farmland than thought - book

Welcome to DU, disalitervisum. You seem to already be at home here.

Whisperer got this WRONG. He was in the laundry biz.

During his testimony, Simpson detailed ways that money had been stolen from a bank in Kazakhstan, then laundered throughout multiple countries — before possibly being funneled in part to the Trump Soho hotel project.


I'd remove the word "possibly". TRump was making illegal money.

Great thread. Mine's not exciting...

Too tired to relate my encounters except this one fr 3 weeks ago.

Big dog and I had just slipped out the front door for a midnight walk & had paused for a second on the front porch to peer into the darkness. Dog was still and quiet and my eyes had just adjusted when along came a beautiful little fox strolling not 12' in front of us. We both stayed frozen as watched it cross the driveway, the lawn, and then disappear into the woods. Why did it not sense or smell us?
Never knew Dog took her signals from me so seriously - not even a twitch from her! Such a good girl. We had seen foxes in our front lawn before but never been that close.

I had a bear "bluff charge" me once in the GSM National Park and have had many encounters with with poisonous snakes and I see deer off my back deck most days. But I've never been that close to a unsuspecting fox. I love living in a nature reserve.

He inherited his assets and the poster above is right: if TRump had put his inherited cash in an index fund, he'd have more money today.

The tax return he did release is not that of a billionaire, according to tax experts I have read. He will not release any more returns.

Plus, if he is worth so much money, why will New York Banks not lend him anymore? He is clearly a bad credit risk.

He had to borrow money from Russians, ie, Putin controlled oligarchs. And that is why he got mixed up with them and why Russia is now able to control so much of our politics. They got their foot in the door with TRump and his need for cash.

He has had to file bankruptcy 6 times.

See: http://www.washingtonpost.com/politics/2016/live-updates/general-election/real-time-fact-checking-and-analysis-of-the-first-presidential-debate/fact-check-has-trump-declared-bankruptcy-four-or-six-times/

Edited to correct myself:
According to CNN and to Forbes, Trump is worth $3.1 billion. I was very wrong.
Very sorry, my friend.


Mark Cuban, who is a billionaire, has made the statement many times that Trump is not a billionaire. How does he know?

I'm hopeful that we will find out more about Trump's finances through Muller's investigations. If his investigations are allowed to come to fruition.

This smears folks with ADD!

I'm especially close to a guy with ADD who has a PhD in theoretical physics fr a prestigious university. His ADD has been very successfully managed all his life with Ritalin. While in the 8th grade, his guidance counselor told me that his IQ test ranked in the .005 percentile, higher than in child in the history of the York County school system. Proud mom here.

This is why I'd rather not hear about the demented imbecile in the WH having ADD as a disqualifer.
