TRUMP: Top Pentagon brass and defense contractors in cahoots (paraphrased)

TRUMP: "I'm not saying the military's in love w/ me. The soldiers are, the top people in the Pentagon probably aren't, because they want to do nothing but fight wars so all of those wonderful companies that make the bombs & make the planes & make everything else stay happy."

Story coming out soon that Trump is a petty thief also ?

NEW: On WWI commemoration trip, Trump fancied several pieces art at US ambassador’s historic residence in Paris, where he was staying—and on a whim had a portrait, bust and figurines loaded onto AF1, sources tell @nwadhams and me. Figurines now on mantel in Oval. Story out soon.


Anyone know what this is all about ?

eta: I guess he cannot be considered a "petty thief", but more of an entitled rude ass*****e who has no manners.

Pedo-Trump: Trump comments on Cohen's 15 year old daughter, "Look at that piece of a**..."

Cohen also depicts Trump as being crude toward women, including inadvertently commenting on Cohen’s then-15-year-old daughter as she finished up a tennis lesson: “Look at that piece of a--,” Trump said, according to Cohen. “I would love some of that.”


eta: If my memory is correct, this corresponds to how he has treated his own daughter, Ivanka.

Cohen book: Trump hired a "Faux-bama" to be belitted and then fired...wtf

In upcoming book, Michael Cohen writes Donald Trump's disdain for Obama was so extreme he hired a "Faux-Bama" to participate in a video in which he "ritualistically belittled the first black president and then fired him." He includes this photo:


Can we say 1- racist and 2- a truly sick mind ?

eta: https://www.cnn.com/2020/09/05/politics/michael-cohen-book-trump-white-house/index.html

Before Donald Trump ever sought the Oval Office, he was preoccupied by its occupant President Barack Obama, publicly questioning his birthplace and privately describing him as "a Manchurian candidate" who obtained his Ivy League degrees only by way of affirmative action, according to a new book by Trump's former attorney, Michael Cohen.

CNN obtained a copy of the book ahead of its Tuesday publication.

Trump's disdain for Obama was so extreme that he took his fixation a step further, according to Cohen: Trump hired a "Faux-Bama" to participate in a video in which Trump "ritualistically belittled the first black president and then fired him."

Cohen's book, "Disloyal: A Memoir," doesn't name the man who was allegedly hired to play Obama or provide a specific date for the incident, but it does include a photograph of Trump sitting behind a desk, facing a Black man wearing a suit with an American flag pin affixed to the lapel. On Trump's desk are two books, one displaying Obama's name in large letters.




Jeffrey Goldberg on CNN: His...sources...refused to be named because "they don't want to be..."

.@JeffreyGoldberg on CNN says his senior admin & military sources...apparently combat veterans and career senior military officers... refused to be named because "they don't want to be inundated with angry tweets and all the rest."

(Jewish Group) New movie "Final Account" details elderly Nazis horrible behavior

(my title, title of article was too horrible to me)

https://bit.ly/2QXVfrA (yes the link is safe, it contains the horrible original title)

VENICE—It is the vivid description over and over by different voices—sometimes with a wry laugh—of ( text redacted by myself, it is really horrible ) that makes British filmmaker Luke Holland’s Final Account both painful to watch and hard to turn away from. The most poignant aspect of the film is that it proves how state control and coercion can normalize even the most horrific acts, a lesson perhaps more relevant in today’s world than ever.

The 90-minute documentary, which screened Wednesday night at the scaled-down 2020 Venice Film Festival, boils down 12 years of work through 1,000 hours of footage and 300 interviews with the last living members of Hitler’s Third Reich. The men and women, who joined the Hitler Youth or who became SS members or Wehrmacht fighters, are now elderly pensioners whose denial about their complicity in the horror is unanimous, but whose memories are unnervingly crisp when it comes to their childhoods—which played out in Germany’s worst period under Hitler’s reign.

Most regret what happened as they deny they had anything to do with it—with the blatant exception of an elderly man named Karl Hollander who still honors Hitler and who says the numbers of those killed is exaggerated. Others wish that Jews had just “been driven from the homeland” rather than being executed.

Many of those featured have pristinely preserved their swastika-stamped membership cards to the Hitler Youth and the SS, unwrapping them for Holland with what can only be described as pride. Others had scrapbooks and other memorabilia of a time it is hard to fathom could have produced anything like a happy childhood, yet photo after photo shows these elderly people as smiling young children caught up in one of the bleakest moments of history.

Much more at article, it's pretty horrible these Nazis STILL are the same. I usually never redact direct article quotes but the article will both enrage and sadden you if you are Jewish or 100% in sympathy as I am.

Trump (according to Michael Cohen): "You think I'm stupid, I wasn't going to Vietnam"

. ⁦@TheAtlantic⁩ article is accurate. I testified, “Trump claimed it was because of a bone spur. When I asked for medical records, he gave me none and said there was no surgery. He finished with: ‘You think I’m stupid, I wasn’t going to Vietnam.”
