Couple of stories that caught my eye over the weekend.

The retweeting of a story about caged immigrants by various journalists (CNN, NYT), Jon Favreau, and activists such as Shaun King and Linda Sarsour

https://mobile.twitter.com/redsteeze/st ... 32/photo/1

Which then resulted in them scrambling to delete when it became apparent that the pictures were from 2014!

A second story did the rounds about an ICE “prison bus for babies” which linked an article which made clear the bus was used for field trips.

Blyth is one of my favourite political economists, who came to prominence during the Greece crisis.


Yep, he’s very good :thumbup:


That's great. It's the kind of discussion you can't have on here lest you be attacked for being obssessed with numbers and semantics. :lol:

I doubt that anyone who should watch it will, and if they do I doubt they'll understand it.


Jesus

it's properly hilarious that people think that this is somehow a logically-purposeful endorsement of Trump :lol:

Oh yes indeed.
The anti-Trump goons simply can't stop themselves from unravelling as the ultimate twerps.


There’s plenty of material his opponents could use to criticise, argue and debate. Instead Trump derangement syndrome produces stuff like this.

I've been thinking the deaths are really the tip of the iceberg. Like there's gonna be more injured more with damaged homes/lost businesses etc. That's horrific.

Would that really help those left behind? It would basically lead to a massive loss of market and investment.

They need options. 10s of thousands never went back to New Orleans after Katrina. Many ended up in Houston or here in Atlanta where they had better options. Saints games here are like 50/50 mostly because of Katrina transplants. Orlando has a booming PR population and cheap housing. Seems like a good fit to me.

What's this despicable rumour about 'David Dennison' paying a Playboy model a large chunk of money to have an abortion and keep stum about the affair?

That couldn't possibly be our man, could it?

Having worked for the office of disaster assistance, I can tell you they still have crap phone service so we are not getting the call volume we expected and they were suppose to be at 100 percent electrical capacity by now and they at 1percent. When I left 40 percent had no electricity while the other 60 had sporadic so they have barely dented the number in a month.

Also like the new Fascist GOP there is some guy running for house rep that wants to prohibit Puerto Ricans arriving in Florida from voting

At 6.5%, I can't make up my mind whether it is a little light, or far too robust.

All the same, I'm going to give it whirl. :thumbup:

Yes, because trademark applications are so notoriously hard to file and get approved that one needs to bargain with multi million telecoms deals to get them. There’s absolutely no other way this could have happened. :roll:

Sadly corruption and incompetence from Puerto Rican officials seems to be a big part of the problem there.

Regarding voting, correct me if I’m wrong: Puerto Rican’s are US Citizens but do not have full federal rights (including voting rights) whilst residing in Puerto Rico as it is not a State, however if they come to reside in the United States then they have the same rights as any other citizen.

“Some guy running for house rep” mouthing off is not going to change something that was ruled on by the Supreme Court over a century ago.

This one certainly does seem to be a storm in a teacup - but this is what happens with nepotism and failure to divest as per norms...

Avenatti out

https://www.google.co.uk/amp/thehill.co ... case%3famp

Quote:
Michael Avenatti has withdrawn his request to represent adult-film star Stormy Daniels in the case centered on the FBI raid of President Trump's attorney Michael Cohen.

Shortly after a conference hearing Wednesday in a federal district court in Manhattan, Avenatti withdrew his request to weigh in on the case.

Cohen is reportedly being investigated, among other things, for the $130,000 he paid Daniels ahead of the 2016 presidential election to keep quiet about the affair she says she had with Trump.

Avenatti reportedly faced tough questions during the hearing from federal District Judge Kimba Wood, who told him in court on Wednesday he would have to stop his "publicity tour" if he wanted to participate in the case.

Cohen's attorneys fought hard to keep Avenatti from joining the case, arguing in court filings that he's has created a "carnival atmosphere" by making public statements and doing national TV appearances in which he's shared nonpublic information and made misrepresentations about Cohen.

Earlier this month, Avenatti released bank records leaked to him that showed several companies had paid Cohen through a shell company for consulting services.

Wood reprimanded Avenatti in court, according to multiple media reports.

"You cannot declare your opinion as to Mr. Cohen's guilt, which you did. You would not be able to give publicity to documents," Wood said, according to the New York Daily News.

"You're entitled to publicity. I can't stop you - unless you're participating in a matter before me."

Trey Gowdy, the man who just lives for investigations into the Democrats and anyone seen related to them, has stated after the briefing for the Gang of 8 that the FBI's actions were exactly as he would want them to act and that there is nothing suspicious about them.

But Drumpf still has serious concerns.

Kim Kardashian will meet with Trump at the White House and ask him to pardon a woman serving a life sentence without parole for a first-time drug offense. The meeting is apparently the result of months of back-channel talks between Kardashian and Jared Kushner. Am I reading too much into this?
