Jan 19 - No Joke: TRUMP IS LOOKING INTO MAKING BRIBERY LEGAL
 

 
The trouble with the Trump administration, beyond the moral bankruptcy, rampant nepotism, sheer incompetence, mass corruption, white nationalism, idiot children, a*sault on the concept of truth, and pure evil, is that oftentimes it’s beyond parody. For instance, we know Donald Trump is a wildly shady businessman who believes the purpose of the presidency is to enrich his family and friends, that he thinks the law is for suckers, and that he might be a tax cheat, but it would just be too much to learn that he was actively looking into making bribery legal. And yet!

forthcoming book called A Very stable Genius: Donald J. Trump’s Testing of America, by Washington Post reporters Philip Rucker and Carol D. Leonnig, reports that Trump has complained about existing rules, and that he clashed with former secretary of state Rex Tillerson in 2017 when Trump pushed to scrap the FCPA.

“It’s just so unfair that American companies aren’t allowed to pay bribes to get business overseas,” Trump said, according to a passage published by the Post. “We’re going to change that.” The law is designed to prevent individuals and businesses in the U.S. from paying money or offering gifts to foreign officials as a way to win business overseas. Critics of the law complain that it puts U.S. businesses at a disadvantage in places where bribes are customary.


Lest anyone think this is some made-up, inflammatory anecdote designed to sell books, as the president will surely suggest, his own National Economic Council director has admitted that it’s totally true. “We are looking at it,” Larry Kudlow told reporters at the White House on Friday, responding to a question about the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act. “I would just say: We are aware of it, we are looking at it, and we’ve heard complaints from some of our companies,” Kudlow said. “I don’t want to say anything definitive policy-wise, but we are looking at it.” Kudlow is, of course, beyond parody himself, having once praised the Trump administration for almost exclusively hiring millionaires, because, and we quote, “Wealthy folks have no need to steal or engage in corruption.”

Speaking of beyond parody

Meet Donald Trump’s impeachment legal team:

With his Senate trial to begin in earnest next week, President Trump has added some high-profile lawyers to his legal team, including Harvard Law professor emeritus Alan Dershowitz and former independent counsel Kenneth W. Starr. Word of the new firepower came as House impeachment managers and Trump’s attorneys scrambled to produce legal briefs ahead of the Senate’s return Tuesday after the holiday weekend.

Starr is, of course, the guy who relentlessly pursued Bill Clinton in the ’90s, and whom Trump described at the time as a “wacko” and a “lunatic.” More recently, Starr was pushed out of his job at Baylor University over accusations that the school failed to respond to allegations of s*xual a*sault against women by members of the football team. (Starr said at the time, in a joint statement with the university, that he would be “leaving his faculty status and tenure” in a split that was mutually agreed upon.) Upon hearing the news that Starr had joined the legal team, Monica Lewinsky tweeted: “this is definitely an ‘are you fu*king kidding me?’ kinda day.”

And then there’s Dershowitz. A onetime member of O.J. Simpson’s legal team, the Harvard Law School professor emeritus has more recently been in the news for his a*sociation with billionaire pedophile Jeffrey Epstein, whose 2008 sweetheart plea deal Dershowitz helped negotiate. The attorney has also been accused of having s*x with a minor he met through Epstein, a claim he has denied. According to Axios’s Jonathan Swan, several White House officials were hoping Trump would decide not to hire a guy with ties to a confirmed monster, but the president “thinks Dershowitz is magnificent on TV.”

Trump may be able to keep his tax returns hidden forever

Or, at least until after the 2020 election, at which point they’ll no longer matter. From the Washington Post:

A federal judge in Washington has announced he would delay ruling on the Trump administration’s request to toss out a lawsuit that would force the government to turn over the president’s tax returns. But according to a newly released court transcript, House Democrats objected, saying the judge’s hesitation makes it more likely President Trump will be able to run out the clock and dodge a congressional subpoena for the records until well after the November election.
In a terse order Tuesday following a telephone conference with the parties in the case, U.S. district judge Trevor N. McFadden said he would not rule in the matter until an appeals court decides whether to uphold another judge’s order that former Trump White House counsel Donald McGahn must comply with a House subpoena to testify in Congress’s impeachment probe. McFadden said the White House raised similar claims in both cases that it enjoys absolute immunity from lawsuits by Congress to enforce oversight demands, according to a transcript of the call released Thursday.... The House Ways and Means Committee filed a lawsuit last year seeking to enforce its May subpoena for six years of the president’s tax records from the U.S. Treasury Department.

The president’s legal team has famously argued that no sitting president can be charged or even investigated for any crimes they might have committed, including, for instance, shooting a random passerby on Fifth Avenue.

Here’s Lara Trump making fun of Joe Biden for having a stutter

She may be an in-law, but somehow Eric’s wife managed to acquire the Trump gene for pure class:

Do you think articles like these persuade anyone that Trump is bad or something that arent already drinking that koolaid?

You have multibillion dollar corporations like Amazon (Washington Post) and Advance Publications (Vanity Fair) chastising their political enemy for loosening bribery laws as though those laws have any actual impact on bribery in any way, or that these corporations themselves don't engage in lobbying, networking, and back room dealmaking but just better maneuver the system unlike smaller companies because of the scale of their businesses and political contacts.

To a Trump fan this is exactly why they voted for him in the first place - the elite say with a straight face they combat bribery with laws. lol.

Seems like that sometimes.

For me that's why i like buddhism and am getting back into studying philosophy again. Actually trying to be a more genuine positive person in day to day life is a more rewarding goal than all this political sh*t. So many bold face bullsh*t artists and pathological liars crying how they are victims to get more and more its awful on the psyche.
