Melania Trump’s $51,500 Coat Reminds Us We Live in an Oligarchy

Look upon it and despair.

I don’t know about you, but most of the time I can hum along on my daily routine without being crushed by the sheer unfairness and brutality of the world. We all live on a spectrum between children born in a war zone and people who get Instagram famous because of their gross displays of wealth, but thinking about it too much makes existence unbearable, and ultimately leads to a shattering sense of a life unfulfilled.

So my advice is to not let your gaze linger on the jacket Melania Trump was wearing at the G-7 summit in Italy this week. It costs $51,500, and if you want to buy one just like it, you have to make a $25,750 deposit, only it’s not available right now and also you can’t afford it because who can? Not the workers at Ivanka Trump’s Chinese clothing factory, who reportedly get paid around $60 a week. Not Americans making the federal minimum wage, who earn around $15,000 a year if they only have one full-time job (they probably have to have more than one in order to survive). Not you, unless you are fabulously wealthy, in which case congrats.

oligarchy – a government in which a small group exercises control especially for corrupt and selfish purposes
Donald Trump was said to have been a billionaire and likely lost hundreds of millions running for President. They have the means & lived THAT lifestyle. How much were Hillary Clinton’s pantsuits & designer jackets? How much did the Clintons earn AFTER Bill left office AND WHILE Hillary was SoS?!? Lastly, is the Clinton (Foundation) Global Initiative still active? NO!

Hillary Will Be Protested By Haitians Who Know She Exploited Them After Earthquake

Haitians resentful over the manipulative efforts of Bill and Hillary Clinton after the 2010 earthquake plan to protest Hillary’s commencement speech and honorary degree June 8 at Medgar Evers College in Brooklyn, New York.

Komokoda, or the Committee to Mobilize Against Dictatorship in Haiti, which is protesting Clinton’s appearance, released a statement blasting Hillary for consistently using the black community to resurrect her reputation. They also urged the college’s president, Rudy Crew, to rescind the invitation. Their statement read:

Every time the Clintons get in a bind, they run to the black community to whitewash their tarnished image. After Bill Clinton was impeached for lying under oath in the Monica Lewinsky affair, he brought in Jesse Jackson and a host of black preachers to lead prayers with him at the White House. To divert attention from her “deleted emails” debacle, Hillary had Bill DeBlasio’s wife, Chirlane McCray, bring her to Brownsville, one of the most impoverished neighborhoods in Brooklyn, for a photo op with little black children. When newspaper editorials and cartoons were blasting her for her unending lies and demanding investigations and prosecutions, former New York City mayor David Dinkins brought her out for a keynote speech at his Dinkins Leadership & Public Policy Forum at Columbia University. Today, for her resurrection from a shameful defeat by the last person most reasonable people felt could ever be president of the United States, the dirty work falls to Rudy Crew.

A Short History Of Presidential Obstruction Of Justice

WHAT EXACTLY IS obstruction of justice? And has President Donald Trump engaged in it, by reportedly telling FBI Director James Comey that he hoped Comey would “let go” of the bureau’s investigation of Trump’s National Security Adviser Michael Flynn, and then firing Comey months later?

The answer to the first question is: Criminal obstruction of justice is broadly defined, and according to 18 U.S. Code § 1503, includes “any threatening letter or communication [which] influences, obstructs, or impedes, or endeavors to influence, obstruct, or impede, the due administration of justice.”

The Criminal Resource Manual for U.S. attorneys points out that “the Supreme Court has concluded that ‘endeavor’ is broader than ‘attempt’” — and quotes the court stating that in the statute it means “any effort or essay to accomplish the evil purpose that the section was enacted to prevent.” Therefore, says the Justice Department, “it follows that an endeavor to obstruct justice need not be successful to be criminal.”

But the answer to the second question is this: Trump may or may not have engaged in obstruction of justice under normal judicial standards, but that’s irrelevant — the only thing that matters is whether Congress decides he did so under whatever standards they believe are appropriate….continue reading

 

Chilling Similarities Between Seth Rich  Murder And ‘Clinton Body Count’ Victims

People with damning info on Bill and Hillary shot in public places, no signs of theft

 

The unsolved case of Democratic National Committee data analyst Seth Rich’s death shares some eerie similarities with many mysterious deaths of individuals linked to former President Bill Clinton and twice failed presidential candidate Hillary Clinton.

Just as in the Rich case, several of the people who died mysterious deaths were shot spontaneously and in public places, sometimes from behind, sometimes by unknown assailants and often just before they were set to release incriminating evidence concerning the Clintons’ activities. In most cases, there were no signs of theft at the crime scenes. And while some of the deaths were ruled suicides, other cases remain a mystery.

Rich worked for the Democratic National Committee as a data analyst and reportedly sent more than 44,000 DNC emails to WikiLeaks, including 17,761 attachments, from January 2015 through the end of May 2016. As WND reported, the DNC staffer had been in contact with WikiLeaks Director Gavin MacFadyen, who died just 17 days before the election of lung cancer.

Rich was mysteriously shot and killed July 10, 2016. As WND reported, Rich was murdered near his affluent neighborhood in Washington, D.C. He was shot in the back with a handgun at 4:18 a.m. while he walked home, and nothing was taken from him. Rich, who called several people as he later walked home, was talking on the phone with his girlfriend, Kelsey Murka, when he was accosted a block from his house. He was transported to a local hospital and was pronounced dead at 5:57 a.m.

“If it was a robbery it failed because he still has his watch, he still has his money, he still has his credit cards, still had his phone, so it was a wasted effort except we lost a life,” said Rich’s father, Joel, shortly after the bizarre murder….continue reading
