For those of us with Russian friends

Is anyone aware of a safe way to transfer funds from the US to Russia at this time? Or have all avenues been blocked?

My apologies if this is placed on the wrong message board.

CNN Panelist: "In the upside world we're living in right now"

Is our world really upside down? Is up down and left right? Is some news fake and some news real? Could I ever be influenced by fake news directed at me?

I must admit, I sometimes have these questions run through my mind and I have to clarify to myself that MY news and MY sources are the real ones and the other guy is the one getting bum information (or no information) from his FAKE NEWS source. It's a ridiculous doubt to carry these days, but I think all of us realize that these are times like no other before and all of us are a few missteps away from living in a compromised democracy...if democracy can exist under Trump's rule at all.

But here's one way I can divine the truth from the fiction and the real from the fake. An imaginary world doesn't have courtrooms. It doesn't have a set of laws codified at the state and federal levels. It doesn't have prisons. It doesn't have trials (except for lame Congressional hearings). There's never been a Democratic transgressor that landed in their fake prison.

The real world features real trials with real evidence and due process. The real world has already tried and sentenced real people from their fake world to serve time in our real prisons.

Just like discovering moss on the north side of a tree can help get you oriented if you're lost in the woods, the results of real world action can help distinguish what is real from what is fake. Right now, there are tens of millions of Americans who want their fictional world to be considered on par with ours.

It will never be.

Donald Trump has only $93 million in cash per Forbes report

The New York attorney general is investigating the former president for manipulating the value of his properties in ways that benefit him. It’s something we’re familiar with at Forbes, because Trump tried to mislead us about his financial information for decades. This is the first in a series of stories digging deeper into the numbers...

How much cash does Donald Trump have? He’s often said he has a lot. At times he’s said he had a little. Some say he’s flat broke.

Of the former president’s more than two dozen holdings, much of them tough-to-value real estate, his pile of cash and liquid assets should be the easiest to pin down—you just add up the balances on his account statements. But Trump doesn’t share those publicly, and his government financial disclosures only required him to list his cash and investments in broad, imprecise ranges. So, the exact size of Trump’s cash pile has always been something of a closely kept secret.

But filings released Tuesday by New York Attorney General Letitia James, as part of her civil investigation into the Trump Organization’s financial dealings, offer the clearest picture yet: Trump’s liquid assets stood at $93 million in 2020, according to the documents.


Doesn't it feel like we've waited over 5 years for this moment?

Through one stolen election, two impeachments, a 2-year special counsel investigation, another attempted stolen election, little media support, crazy voices overspeaking the sane and just...

...I will admit that after Mueller, I felt like the inertia would never turn back around, and like so many here on DU, I was afraid, very afraid, for the future of our nation.

After yesterday and today, I no longer feel so hopeless. We've got this. Our leaders have looked us square in the eye and told us that they ain't messing around. We may not get the results we want - Trump may never get frog-marched to a holding cell - but I think the TRUTH is about to be told over and over again, and the propagandists' message will be drowned out.

For now.
