I remember Sleepy's bank of cyprus laundromat for russkie oligarchs and kgb mob guys.

Engel and Maddow are great.

There was a laughable article from the NYT 3/6/17, about how Ross was trying to clean up the russians at his bank.

But Mother Jones reported that he actually joined with an oligarch and ex-KGB guy to run the bank.

https://www.motherjones.com/politics/2016/12/trump-commerce-pick-wilbur-ross-financial-ties-russians/

"Ross was appointed vice-chairman at the bank after his investment in 2014, a post he shared with a deposit holder-turned-shareholder, Vladimir Strzhalkovsky, referred to in Russian media as a former KGB official and Putin ally. According to the bank’s annual reports, the two attended two board meetings together in 2014 and as many as five together in 2015 before Strzhalkovsky’s May 2015 resignation from the board. One of the questions that has been posed to Ross by Democratic senators is whether he ever had contact with Strzhalkovsky.

One of Ross’s first big decisions at the bank was the appointment of former Deutsche Bank chief executive Josef Ackermann as chairman, whom he chose in part because of Ackermann’s “huge Rolodex”, according to a 2014 Bloomberg interview.

Ackermann’s ties to Russia were especially strong, including a warm relationship with Putin and Herman Gref of Sberbank."

Nothing more pathetic than a whiny nazi.

And, although 'tRump rages' and 'tRump lashes out' are excellent all purpose phrases that can be constantly used in reporting on our current situation, I suggest that media switch over, universally, to 'tRump blubbers'.

It's much more all encompassing. Also, he's kind of fat.

Look, there's NO policy. And St. Paul TOLD them to enact this policy. And they're trying to

do everything they can to END this evil Dem policy.

And also, there's NO policy.

The rogue NY field office, again. Kallstrom, Sweizer, Mercer, Ghouliani.

Inneresting, the pro dRump armed violent nazi teabags are taking up arms

to support the policy that their hero said the Dems forced on the country.

They often have difficulty synching their messaging, on the nutcase nazi right.

By coincidence,

my rational skeptical heroes Winters/Logan et al just squashed Peterson's 5 min Prager U vid. (I know the original subthread was the validity of Harris, but some of the o.p.er's confreres on this site were whinging that only Harris is 'athiest', Rubin and Peterson weren't.)

Prager U is a fundy christian outfit which takes people (Rubin, Peterson, Epstein) from the Ayn Rand Institute and puts them on it's non academically accredited video blog.

So there's Peterson and Rubin hanging around with Ayn Rand 'athiests', and using that connection to go onto a bircher fundy christian 'University' video lecture series, in appearances that promote fascist thought.

Who's to say what's 'mainstream' athiest thought? But I'm pretty sure my simple points, that 'Harris = bad', and 'Harris, Peterson, Rubin are eerily parallel', are born out.

Stone: 'I JUST remembered that I TRIED to conspire with Russians one time, and

I couldn't get him to accept that cheap broke hemorrhoid's offer of $0 dollars for the info he got from Putin's intel agents.

So it's all legal.'

A lot of people could see what he wanted to do, before kristallnacht.

He wrote about it, ran on it, gave power to people who hated Jews.

Some of the people decrying the comparison are being obtuse. There's no reason to reify the nazis to the single time point in their existence right before VE Day.

No reason to have to be so precise in our language every time, 'they're like the NSDAP in the period after '33, though they're not german national socialist workers, to be sure.' Simplifying it to 'they're nazis' is in no way dismissive of the major evil action of exterminating those millions of Jewish people.

They're nazis like those beer hall putsch-ers.

Perfect market for dRUmpf brand condos.

The population is used to inferior construction, tiny, decaying, state-built tenements.

The only explanation is that the repug right is testing the proposition that

the President can't be found to be treasonous.

Any treasonous thing he chooses to do is automatically 'not treasonous', because he's president.

He'll openly betray and destroy this country, all the time, with every move and action, openly tell us on the tv that he's conspiring with Putin against the G-6 and the US, and the swine repugs are fine with it. Peachy keen, hunky dory.
