Manafort Had $60 Million Relationship With a Russian Oligarch

No.187752 ViewReplyOriginalReportDownload thread
Now we know why Trump was attacking NBC. They were about to report that his campaign manager was massively in debt to Russian Oligarchs during the campaign.


LONDON — Paul Manafort, a former campaign manager for President Donald Trump, has much stronger financial ties to a Russian oligarch than have been previously reported.

An NBC News investigation reveals that $26 million changed hands in the form of a loan between a company linked to Manafort and the oligarch, Oleg Deripaska, a billionaire with close ties to the Kremlin.

The loan brings the total of their known business dealings to around $60 million over the past decade, according to financial documents filed in Cyprus and the Cayman Islands.

Manafort was forced to resign from the Trump campaign in August 2016, following allegations of improper financial dealings, charges he has strenuously denied. He is now a central figure in special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation into alleged collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia. Investigators have said they are looking into Manafort's financial ties to prominent figures in Russia.

According to company documents obtained by NBC News in Cyprus, funds were sent from a company owned by Deripaska to entities linked to Manafort, registered in Cyprus.

Deripaska’s office did not respond to requests for comment.

Manafort’s spokesman, Jason Maloni, declined to give specific answers about the loans, but released a statement to NBC News saying, in part, "Mr. Manafort is not indebted to former clients today, nor was he at the time he began working for the Trump campaign.”

Trump approval hits record-low 32 percent in AP poll

No.184958 ViewReplyOriginalReportDownload thread

President Trump's approval rating has sunk to a new low in a new Associated Press/NORC Center for Public Affairs Research survey.

Thirty-two percent of Americans polled said they approved of Trump's handling of his job in office nine months into his presidency, while 67 percent of those polled said they disapproved.

The president's approval rating in the poll is down from 42 percent in March and 35 percent in June.

Trump also did not fare well among Americans who were asked if he understands their needs and problems.
Sixty-four percent of Americans said the president did not understand their needs "not very well" or "not very well at all."

Trump's job approval rating in the poll is lower than many released recently, as he is hovering around 40 percent in the RealClearPolitics average of such surveys.

The AP/NORC survey was conducted in late September and early October, at a time when the president was taking heat for his response to the humanitarian crisis in Puerto Rico.

The president stirred controversy when he attacked San Juan Mayor Carmen Yulin Cruz on Twitter. Cruz had criticized the federal government's response to Hurricane Irma, which left virtually all of Puerto Rico without power.

The Associated Press/NORC Center for Public Affairs research survey was conducted on Sept. 28-Oct. 2 among 1,150 adults. The margin of error was 4.1 percentage points.

Shitty parents bitch about dress code for First Communion

No.187822 ViewReplyOriginalReportDownload thread

While preparing for her First Holy Communion, an important milestone for young Catholics, it was abundantly clear to her family that Cady would want to be wholly herself at the altar, and wear something she was comfortable in. So, the family made plans to go to a fancy children’s boutique this spring to purchase a suit. Cady got her suit tailored to fit her just right. Her mom said Cady loved the way her suit was so white that it sparkled.

But when news about the first Communion suit reached leaders at Cady’s school, St. John The Evangelist, it apparently caused a stir. Days before the First Communion service on Oct. 1, school administrators and the parish’s priest, Rev. Sammie L. Maletta, reportedly told Cady’s parents that if their daughter wanted to wear the suit, she couldn’t receive First Communion rites along with the rest of her classmates.

Instead, she’d have to conform to the church’s dress code by wearing a skirt, or taking part in a private ceremony ― options that wouldn’t allow Cady to come church feeling accepted just as she is.

Mansell said that in March, Cady was able to wear a jumpsuit and a sweater during another important Catholic ceremony ― her First Reconciliation ― while the other girls in her group wore dresses.

Mansell added that Cady has expressed a diverse gender identity and her daughter shouldn’t be pigeonholed.

DEA chief requests taxpayer subsidies for uncompetitive coal fired plants

No.188376 ViewReplyOriginalReportDownload thread
Facing questions on Capitol Hill over his proposal to subsidize coal and nuclear power plants, Energy Secretary Rick Perry said the notion of a free market in energy generation is a "fallacy."

The hearing before the House Energy Subcommittee contained some noteworthy moments, including when Perry was unable to answer a basic question about his controversial proposal and implied the regulators who are considering it do not take a long-term view of energy markets.

The proposal in question asks the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission to consider, on an expedited timetable, a rule to compensate coal-fired plants and nuclear power stations for the reliability they bring to the nation's electricity supply. Perry's proposal has gotten pushback from power industry groups, environmentalists and even one of the FERC commissioners.

"We will not destroy the marketplace," FERC Commissioner Robert Powelson told an audience last week when asked about the proposal.

The Energy Department's request that FERC make a final decision within 60 days has drawn criticism in particular, given that the Energy Department and the North American Electric Reliability Corporation have both determined the nation's power system remains reliable. Some contend the department is rushing the process to rescue distressed coal and nuclear plants.

The share of the nation's power generated from coal and nuclear energy has slipped due to cheap, abundant natural gas and the rapid growth of solar and wind farms. President Donald Trump has vowed to revive the coal industry.

How I learned to stop worrying and love the bomb.


We know this is putin's mouthpiece, but today they are even deleting messages of peace from the comments. That's madness and frankly makes me mad.

I don't want to watch people get brainwashed in Nork terriority, I want them to wake to rise to soar.

Can it be flooded? Can debate actually be injected into this red-headed step-kuck of a platform? Has such an op been attempted? Results? Would this only play into the sick story being weaved there?

Is the only move, never go to RT ever again?

Trump visits Virgin Islands territory, mistakes it for a foreign country

No.187974 ViewReplyOriginalReportDownload thread
Washington (CNN)President Donald Trump accidentally referred to the US Virgin Islands' governor as their President during a speech Friday -- even though he is technically their President.

"I will tell you I left Texas and I left Florida and I left Louisiana and I went to Puerto Rico and I met with the President of the Virgin Islands," he told the audience of the Values Voter Summit in Washington.
"We are one nation and we all hurt together, we hope together and we heal together," he said, later adding, "The Virgin Islands and the President of the Virgin Islands, these are people that are incredible people, they suffered gravely and we're be there, we're going to be there, we have really, it is not even a question of a choice."
Trump appeared to be referring to Virgin Islands Gov. Kenneth Mapp, instead of the "President" who is Trump himself. The Virgin Islands is a US territory.
The White House did not immediately respond to CNN's request for comment. But in the official White House transcript after the speech, his reference to Mapp as President was corrected to "governor."

He was referring to how the US Virgin Islands was hit first by Hurricane Irma, then Hurricane Maria, which ravaged the island.

Jeff Sessions just threw every transgender American to the wolves


Attorney General Jeff Sessions released a memo this morning declaring that the Department of Justice does not interpret Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 as offering protections to transgender individuals in the workplace. This is a sharp reversal from the Obama-era interpretation.
“Although federal law, including Title VII, provides various protections to transgender individuals, Title VII does not prohibit discrimination based on gender identity per se,” Sessions wrote. “This is a conclusion of law, not policy. As a law enforcement agency, the Department of Justice must interpret Title VII as written by Congress."
“The Department of Justice will take that position in all pending and future matters (except where controlling lower-court precedent dictates otherwise, in which event the issue should be preserved for potential future review),” he added.
