Deutsche Bank has already called in $340 million worth of loans and he got around a year to pay it all off.  Given the company books, it looks like the only way that'll happen is if he starts selling assets, which of course means properties.

 

But if one starts calling them in, then the rest may not leave calling theirs in too long.  It's fairly obvious Trump assets have been funded by 'business loans' from one shell to the other, for quite some time.  How much actual capital is quite unknown, but it's not the mega-bucks many of his supporters think it is.

Exclusive: Dozens of former Republican officials in talks to form anti-Trump third party

 

(Reuters) - Dozens of former Republican officials, who view the party as unwilling to stand up to former President Donald Trump and his attempts to undermine U.S. democracy, are in talks to form a center-right breakaway party, four people involved in the discussions told Reuters.

 

 

The early stage discussions include former elected Republicans, former officials in the Republican administrations of Ronald Reagan, George H.W. Bush, George W. Bush and Trump, ex-Republican ambassadors and Republican strategists, the people involved say.

More than 120 of them held a Zoom call last Friday to discuss the breakaway group, which would run on a platform of “principled conservatism,” including adherence to the Constitution and the rule of law - ideas those involved say have been trashed by Trump.

 

The plan would be to run candidates in some races but also to endorse center-right candidates in others, be they Republicans, independents or Democrats, the people say.

Evan McMullin, who was chief policy director for the House Republican Conference and ran as an independent in the 2016 presidential election, told Reuters that he co-hosted the Zoom call with former officials concerned about Trump’s grip on Republicans and the nativist turn the party has taken.

 

Three other people confirmed to Reuters the call and the discussions for a potential splinter party, but asked not to be identified.

 

Among the call participants were John Mitnick, general counsel for the Department of Homeland Security under Trump; former Republican congressman Charlie Dent; Elizabeth Neumann, deputy chief of staff in the Homeland Security Department under Trump; and Miles Taylor, another former Trump homeland security official.

You can literally swap Republican out for Democrat and you'd still be right

Weird how barely any mainstream sources are shedding light on the whole Cuomo nursing home scandal

If the reports are true and he covered up nursing home death counts then the f*cker should be put under the jail

Whatever does damage to the 'noble' case from any side, will be swept under the rug.

True facts are being held hostage. And then we see mostly peaceful riots and violent verbal domestic terrorism.

Eh? Literally all of them are running lengthy pieces on it. Suggesting otherwise is demonstrably false with about three seconds googling.

 

CNN, Fox, NYT, AP, Politico, NBC and ABC have all run prominent stories on it in the last 24 hours.

 

 

If you're going to make crap up you might want to choose something that's harder to demonstrate as objectively false.

 Still nearly a year late to the story but Im glad CNN is finally saying something about it. Must be awkward since his brother works for them

Pelosi announces plans for '9/11-type commission' to investigate Capitol attack

 

 

(CNN)House Speaker Nancy Pelosi announced in a letter to House Democrats on Monday plans for the creation of a "9/11-type commission" to investigate the January 6 attack on the US Capitol.

 

"To protect our security, our security, our security, our next step will be to establish an outside, independent 9/11-type Commission to 'investigate and report on the facts and causes relating to the January 6, 2021 domestic terrorist attack upon the United States Capitol Complex,'" Pelosi wrote.

Pelosi has previously called for the formation of such a commission and said she believes there is a need for it.

 

A commission of this nature would be established by a statute, passed by both chambers and signed into law by the President. The commission members would not be elected leaders and would be outside the government.

In a separate letter to House Democrats earlier this month, Pelosi wrote that it is "clear that we will need to establish a 9/11-type Commission to examine and report upon the facts, causes and security relating to the terrorist mob attack on January 6."

deadly attack prompted House Democrats to move swiftly to impeach former President Donald Trump in January. The Senate impeachment trial of the former President concluded over the weekend, and ended in Trump's acquittal on a single charge of incitement of insurrection.

 

Efforts to shore up security at the Capitol and shed light on what led to its breach by a violent, pro-Trump mob on January 6 are still ongoing, however.

In mid-January, Pelosi announced that retired Lt. General Russel Honoré will lead a review of the "security infrastructure" of Capitol Hill in the wake of the attack.

"For the past few weeks, General Honoré has been assessing our security needs by reviewing what happened on January 6 and how we must ensure that it does not happen again," Pelosi wrote in her letter on Monday.

It's been nearly a month with no posts in this thread. I had forgotten what boringly competent government looked like.

 

 

Report came out today regarding foreign influence operations in the 2020 election. Surprise surprise, plenty of Russian activity aimed at supporting Trump and a good amount of Iranian activity designed to attack him- the latter significantly more impactful despite being much smaller in scope. What wasn't found, though, is any evidence to support the notion of Chinese interference. This might seem like a fairly strange thing to pick up on, but in actuality it serves to highlight some of the fundamental issues with the Trump administrations' filling senior positions the intelligence community with unqualified lackeys whose sole purpose was to perpetuate false narratives. 

 

Back in December John Ratcliffe, Trump's appointee as Director of National Intelligence (a role which, having literally never worked in the intelligence community, he was supremely unqualified for) publicly spoke out against assessments from within the US intelligence community which saw Russia being the key focus of efforts to rebut electoral interference and propaganda operations. He subsequently released an utterly incoherent three-page diatribe asserting that evidence of Chinese influence operations in the US was systematically downplayed and the US intelligence community was inherent biased in favour of blaming Russia, despite the actual empirical evidence of Chinese electoral interference being zero. 

 

The newly declassified DNI report effectively affirms the fact that Ratcliffe's comments were absolute bunk. As per the executive summary:

It's a shame the president cant board his jet without tripping up the steps. Hope they fit a lift for him soon. 

To be fair, Trump also had difficulty navigating steps. With the current trend for septuagenarian presidents maybe they need to fit all presidential transport and buildings with Stannah Stairlifts.

It's always like that, isn't it? I had a coworker too who said that it was highly dubious how none of the so-called MSM outlets were writing about Bitcoin and GameStop, and implied conspiratorial motivations. When I asked him to please write Bitcoin into Google, he did of course find an endless stream of both national and international MSM articles on it. He pretended that all of those articled were published on that day before swiftly changing the subject. These guys just want to believe what they believe, and have an absolute disregard for truth.

Kinda funny how last year everybody was praising Cuomo and now this year everyone's tearing him apart lol.

Naw man, it's just when one choses to live their live with zero principles, momentum towards any position or POV can be effortlessly generated.  May sound a bit messy or even exhausting, but you save a ton of time and energy what with not having to think and stuff. And let's face it, why would you want to? You've experienced nothing less during your entire life than a government that has made good decisions that have benefited you. On a side note. If anyone has any tips on how I could catch cancer, please pm me. Thanks in advance!

On some level, I take comfort in the fact that "forwards from Grandma" are still going strong and aren't artifacts from an internet gone by.

 

I'd prefer they come from a less odious publc figure, though.
