Section in which Rob babbles about race for no reason or prompting[edit]

──────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────── Ok. I'll come clean. I have a guilty conscience over this. I put a lot of work into researching this:

Maddow uses her show to deliver racist rants against outsourcing jobs to China and India.[2][3][4][5][6][7].The Dark Side of the Outsourcing Revolution, By Naeem Mohaiemen, AlterNet, January 23, 2004.Does Outsourcing Create Racism? Yahoo Answers.Is 'Outsourced' racist? NBC's new comedy, set in a Mumbai call center, is drawing charges that it's culturally insensitive, Review, The Week, September 24, 2010.Outsourced Racism, New Republic, Neera Tanden, May 5, 2010.</ref><ref>"at the World Economic Forum trade a British unionist, Philip Jennings, boldly declared that outsourcing white-collar jobs to low-wage developing countries, especially India and China, would provoke ... opposition of developed-world labour unions to trade liberalisation, especially in relation to outsourcing, imports of cheap consumer goods and labour migration, can easily fuel racism within the West in the 21st century." [2]Transcript: The Rachel Maddow Show, Thursday. October 14, 2010.

On the surface it would appear Rachel Maddow and I have flipped our respective positions. I'll admit, I was wrong to call her racist then, and she needs to admit she is wrong calling Trump supporters racist now. nobsDie fascists! Make America Great! 03:54, 24 August 2019 (UTC)

This isn't hard to understand: In 2010 I called opponents of free trade racists, as represented by Rachel Maddow (see footnote 5 especially). In 2019 it appears Maddow and I have flipped our positions - she's a big critic of Trump who is undoing free trade policies - I've adopted the position of opposing "imports of cheap consumer goods and labour migration" which "can easily fuel racism within the West in the 21st century." I was wrong then to call Maddow a racist, and she needs to admit her error now calling the anti-free trade movement "racist." nobsDie fascists! Make America Great! 18:29, 25 August 2019 (UTC)
You are a racist. Trump is a racist, his policies are designed to negatively effect ethnic minorities (and minorities overall). You support him, therefore you support his policies, therefore you you support racism, therefore you are racist. Whether you admit this fact is irreverent. ☭Comrade GC☭Ministry of Praise 18:38, 25 August 2019 (UTC)
Oh by the way, there's no debating or discussing these facts. I've met the burden of proof, and showed a chain of causation, you're either dishonest or in denial. ☭Comrade GC☭Ministry of Praise 18:40, 25 August 2019 (UTC)
And my conversion to being pro-tariff is not a matter of convenience. From the late 1970s until 2014 I embraced the Reaganesque line (which traces its origins to FDR & Truman) that free trade promotes democracy. By 2014 (and there are recorded discussions of this in RW archives) I began dismissing this idea with the realization that free trade only strengthened tyrannical regimes (China and Iran as examples). True, Trump held these views since at least 1986, and I never fully embraced them until after Trump put his foot down and proved he was serious, going against the Washington consensus with Chinese tariffs. I am not alone among GOPers, who used to regard the anti-free trade movement as racist, until the Midwestern rednecks spoke out in 2016 and said they would rather have jobs than government provided opioids to soothe their losses. nobsDie fascists!

I am not a crook. Oxyaena Harass 09:45, 28 August 2019 (UTC)
The 'I am not a crook' quote is one of the most bizarre in the Nixon story - and it has nothing to do with Watergate.
The lame duck Congress (Dec. 1968) before Nixon took office changed the tax law. Nixon appraised his VP papers during the transition to take a charitable tax deduction (on the advice of LBJ). The most valuable item was a 1956 letter from Martin Luther King (killed Apr. 1968). A Nixon flunky backdated the transfer of the charitable deduction in the months that followed to make the transaction appear to have taken affect before the new law took affect. Nixon had no knowledge of the accountant backdating the document. In Nixon's second term, Nixon came under IRS audit. The Watergate fishing expedition was producing nothing, and the public had trouble understanding what Nixon was accused of. The new accusation was that Nixon took an illegal deduction, got a $250,000 refund, and bought a Key Biscayne property (the 'Florida White House'). When asked about it, he said 'I am not a crook. I earned every dime'. Fake news media was only too willing to spin that into something that had to do with the convoluted Watergate revelations.
And Congress only changed the law cause Nixon was coming into office. LBJ and others had taken advantage of this same loophole.
So Congress had disallowed public servants from taking a deduction for donation of their papers. When Nixon challenged the IRS (Nixon vs. United States) SCOTUS ruled the papers were the government's property. Hillary Clinton's emails were not her own private property to delete under this same ruling. She knew better. nobsDie fascists! Make America Great! 10:07, 28 August 2019 (UTC)

──────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────── Holy fuck this is amazing lol--RipCityLiberal (talk) 15:19, 28 August 2019 (UTC)

Leaving aside a discussion of Hillary's deleted emails being akin to Nixon's 18 minute gap in Oval Office tapes, look at the IG Comey carve out report. Comey argues that 7 memos he wrote of conversations with the President were his private property, as Nixon argued Oval Office tape recordings were Nixon's private property.
Now, do you believe Comey is making a good faith argument?
And let's leave aside discussing whether's Comey exoneration of Clinton overturns the Watergate precedent regarding government files. nobsDie fascists! Make America Great! 20:19, 29 August 2019 (UTC)

Horowitz IG Report[edit]

Isn't it funny how literally NOTHING you said would be in the report is there? Like zilch, nada, zero. I expect that you'll cease with this nonsense and accept that the Mueller report is an accurate accounting of the facts and the investigation was in no way criminal. Also that Michael Flynn is fucking guilty.--RipCityLiberal (talk) 18:22, 29 August 2019 (UTC)

Duh, this is the separate Comey carve out report, not the FISA abuse report.
You will recall, there was a McCabe carve out report separate from OIG Clinton email report. nobsDie fascists! Make America Great! 18:47, 29 August 2019 (UTC)
About that, very simple question I've been waiting some time for you to answer, a straightforward number, no need to branch out just yet: in what year was a FISA warrant first obtained for Carter Page? Semipenultimate (talk) 19:49, 29 August 2019 (UTC)
October 21, 2016, with three renewals every 90 days for the next year.
More importantly, FISA Section 702 does not need a warrant - it is supposed to be used against non-citizens outside the United States. It was used illegally against U.S. citizens since 2012, and particularly against Hillary Clinton opponents beginning in the July 2015-November 2015 timeframe. FISA abuse first came under review after this timeframe. nobsDie fascists! Make America Great! 19:55, 29 August 2019 (UTC)
Agents of foreign governments, even if they are US citizens, can have their communications with said foreign governments be subjected to FISA warrants. As it turns out, 2016 was not actually the first time a FISA warrant was obtained for Carter Page. The correct answer is '2013'. Now, the next question: what did Page do in 2013 with respect to a foreign government that might justify the FBI's FISA warrant? Semipenultimate (talk) 20:21, 29 August 2019 (UTC)
Ha Ha! Now you are getting at what was withheld from the FISA court. Page is UCE-1 in this DOJ Press Release.
The FBI obtained the recordings after Sporyshev attempted to recruit an FBI undercover employee (“UCE-1”) [Carter Page] who was posing as an analyst from a New York-based energy company. In response to requests from Sporyshev, [Carter Page] provided Sporyshev with binders containing purported industry analysis written by [Carter Page] and supporting documentation relating to [Carter Page's] reports, as well as covertly placed recording devices."
While the court (and media) have been told for three years now that Russians tried to recruit Page in 2013, they have not been told that Page reported the attempted recruitment to the FBI and went to work for them as a paid undercover operative.
Ironically, the public Press Release and thanks given (anonymously as UCE-1) to Page in March 2016 happened only 10 days before he volunteered for the trump campaign. nobsDie fascists! Make America Great! 20:30, 29 August 2019 (UTC)
How can there be an abuse of FISA, if by your stated time when they issued it in 2016, the FBI had already been investigating Russian connections to the Trump campaign for three months?--RipCityLiberal (talk) 21:03, 29 August 2019 (UTC)
Also the source you've included is the SDNY, but it doesn't name the UCE. And since Page has been bragging about being an informal consult of the Kremlin since 2013, this seems like a stretch.--RipCityLiberal (talk) 21:10, 29 August 2019 (UTC)
Now you're seeing the outline.
Snowden described the the potential for abuse :"I, sitting at my desk, certainly had the authorities to WIRETAP anyone, from you, or your accountant, to a federal judge, to even the President if I had a personal" identifier. This is the FISA 702 system. The FISA court has ruled abuse was occurring since 2012.
When NSA director Adm. Rogers discovered the abuse, he shut it down in April 2016. FusionGPS was hired the next day.
FBI 'contractors' were responsible for the abuse. This is where Nellie Ohr comes in. After outside contractor access was cutoff, illegal FISA 702 data was funneled outside the FBI [to FusionGPS] to make it appear the surveillance data was coming from outside the FBI.
Before going farther, you need an understanding of the difference between a FISA Title I warrant, and FISA 702 data. nobsDie fascists! Make America Great! 22:27, 29 August 2019 (UTC)

Duh, I wasn't talking to you, I was talking to Semipenultimate.
You haven't a clue what you are talking or writing about, to wit (a) Flynn is no longer cooperating with his plea agreement, and (b) you haven't a clue about the IG reports.
The whole basis for the origins of Russia investigation are slowly being undermined, as well as the Mueller report itself. If you think your hard work and ignorance now will pay some dividend in the 2020 election year, you're just emblematic of how far out of touch with reality leftwing extremists such as yourself are. nobsDie fascists! Make America Great! 16:06, 30 August 2019 (UTC)
A)Flynn has completed his cooperation...which the gov't announced today. Now he is the one delaying his sentencing, because he shuffled his defense team.
B)The IG report is pretty clear that nothing Comey did was illegal, he did not release any confidential information, and they aren't pursuing any litigation.
The only ignorant person here is you, who refuses to acknowledge basic facts in favor wild conspiracies and baseless accusations against people simply because Trump doesn't like them.--RipCityLiberal (talk) 17:40, 30 August 2019 (UTC)
Well, I can see this has been constructive - you are updating yourself on the Flynn case. Secondly, read the conclusion in the Comey IG report, beginning at page 54. nobsDie fascists! Make America Great! 18:55, 30 August 2019 (UTC)
Nobs, the fact that Page was already a known foreign asset is something that Republicans have been trying to hide; if he's an agent of a foreign power, Title I covers a broad base of his activities. But it's better optics to convince people that he was monitored out of the blue, which is why 702 comes up so often as a way to confuse the issue. And yes, 702 abuse has taken place across multiple presidencies, and is no doubt continuing to take place under the current president. But you are conflating the two: Page was monitored via Title I, due to his self-reported affiliation. 702 was not used to monitor Carter Page since his pre-existing status - do you agree that this is what the facts state? Semipenultimate (talk) 20:54, 30 August 2019 (UTC)
You'll have to wait for the full FISA abuse report. Its gonna be a big deal. The future of the FISA Act and FISA Court are at issue. nobsDie fascists! Make America Great! 01:48, 31 August 2019 (UTC)

Then I suppose the conversation is on hold until this FISA report comes out and it has provable evidence of what you're claiming beyond hearsay, or if Lindsay Graham can also substantiate his claims with actual evidence. Semipenultimate (talk) 20:02, 4 September 2019 (UTC)

──────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────── Well, yah. Let's prepare for an alternative scenario. What happens when

  1. FusionGPS is identified as one of the FBI contractors that is guilty of FISA 702 abuse since the fall of 2015;
  2. Joseph Mifsud is confirmed as a Western intelligence asset working for John Brennan;
  3. Papadopoulos is confirmed to have been set up, first by Brennan, later by Mueller;
  4. Comey, Sally Yates, Andrew McCabe, John Carlin, Rod Rosentein, and Dana Boente are all confirmed to have lied to the FISA court;
  5. Michael Flynn's conviction is thrown out.

What then? nobsDie fascists! Make America Great! 23:38, 4 September 2019 (UTC)

Motherfucker you have been saying the delay for sentencing was some ridiculous conspiracy, when he was continuing to cooperate with the government, until he changed his legal team, so they didn't use him to testify against his business partner. There isn't a single thing in that report that confirms any of the bullshit your spewing.--RipCityLiberal (talk) 21:26, 30 August 2019 (UTC)
Not me. Flynn's lawyers. Read their motion today:
"Mr. Flynn requests that this Court (i) issue an order to show cause why the government should not be held in contempt because of their violation of this Court’s Standing Order and their legal and ethical duties to produce exculpatory and impeachment evidence to the defense; (ii) thereafter find the prosecutors in contempt of this Court’s Brady order; (iii) issue an order to them and to the Department of Justice to preserve all evidence, emails, notes, documents, texts, cell phones—including those of the Special Counsel team—and (iv) order the Department of Justice to produce all evidence the defense requests in our accompanying Motion and any and all other Brady information in the government’s possession. [4] nobsDie fascists! Make America Great! 01:47, 31 August 2019 (UTC)

──────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────── Another excerpt from the Flynn motion:

  • "[Andrew] Weissmann and Ms. [Zainab] Ahmad while at DOJ in 2016-17 were working with cp:Bruce Ohr (then the fourth highest ranking member of DOJ) to feed information from his wife Nellie at cp:FusionGPS and British citizen cp:Christopher Steele to the FBI through his secret back-channel. This was happening after the FBI terminated Mr. Steele as a paid informant because he was keeping the press informed of his “findings.” FusionGPS, Steele, and Ms. Ohr were all working for the Clinton campaign. In addition, Ms. Ohr worked for the CIA. The entire operation is further compromised by the fact that the second agent who interviewed Mr. Flynn along with former agent Strzok, was Bruce Ohr’s contact with the FBI and conducted numerous debriefings of Mr. Ohr—passing along to the FBI the corrupted and false information from the Ohrs, Steele, and FusionGPS. That agent may also have joined Special Counsel’s team. Weissmann and Ahmad were not in the DOJ chain of command to be informed by Mr. Ohr at all. They had no legitimate reason to be privy to his operation with FusionGPS and Christopher Steele. Remarkably, despite this involvement, Mr. Weissmann and Ms. Ahmad then went directly to the Special Counsel team, along with Strzok and possibly the second agent, thereby calling into question the entire investigation with their illicit involvement with Ohr and Steele. Closing the circle, Ahmad was co-counsel with Van Grack in the prosecution of Mr. Flynn. It is imperative the defense obtain the Bruce Ohr 302s and notes—unredacted—and all evidence of this circuitous and illicit operation." nobsDie fascists!

Mueller report (cont)[edit]

  1. Politico Aug 6, 2019: Strzok, the former FBI agent who opened the bureau’s Russia probe [8]
  2. NYT Apr 10, 2019: Barr Asserts Intelligence Agencies Spied on the Trump Campaign. “The question is whether it was adequately predicated." [9]
  3. RCL: "if there was evidence to that fact, it would actually be news." This is the focus of IG FISA abuse investigation. Joe diGenova, former United States Attorney for the District of Columbia when the FISA law took effect said "DOJ inspector general found all four Carter Page FISA warrants were illegally obtained." [10]
  4. See #2
  5. You make an interesting point; why did Mueller/Weissmann not specify what date the criminal investigation began? (it is surreptitiously alluded to on pages 89-90, "On June 14, 2017, when the Washington Post reported that the Special Counsel was investigating the President for obstruction of justice, the President was facing what he had wanted to avoid: a criminal investigation into his own conduct..."). McCabe told 60 Minutes he authorized it "the next day" after Comey's firing. Comey awoke at 3:00 AM after his firing with the spark of an idea: if he leaked the memo where trump said, "I hope you can see your way clear to let this go", he believed he had evidence of a crime - obstruction of justice - which then a Special Counsel could investigate. Sen. Grassley wrote Rosentein on May 17, 2018 [11] stating
The regulations authorizing the appointment of a special counsel state that the Attorney General (or Acting Attorney General) may appoint a special counsel “when he or she determinations that criminal investigation of a person or matter is warranted.”18 The Appointment Order proscribes the Special Counsel’s jurisdiction by citing specifically “the investigation confirmed by then-FBI Director James B. Comey in testimony before the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence on March 20, 2017.”19 In his March 20 testimony, former Director Comey referred to “the investigation” as a counterintelligence investigation—not a criminal investigation.
More specifically, section 600.1 states the Attorney General “will appoint a Special Counsel when he or she determines that criminal investigation of a person or matter is warranted.” The omitted regulations do not authorize counterintelligence investigations.
So there is some question about the legality of Mueller's appointment from the git-go. Supposedly it was clarified in the August 2017 and October 2017 scope memos, which President Trump has ordered to be declassified and made public.
  1. Comey IG report, pgs. 56-57
  2. See Grassley letter, May 18, 2018, and August and October 2017 scope memos (there is some indication there may be more scope memos). nobsDie fascists! Make America Great! 22:35, 4 September 2019 (UTC)

Actually I fucked up in posting it to the Mueller talk page (those scroll ups fucked me up) and I accidentally created double postings . Sorry. Disregard. I think I got it fixed now.
No. This isn't the end-all-to-beat-all.
The simple facts are: a Special Counsel cannot be appointed in a counterintelligence investigation. Grassley called Rosenstein out on the matter. Rosenstein clarified the scope in at least two (August and October 2017) scope memos. Trump came under criminal investigation after the firing of Comey for alleged obstruction of justice. Durham, Barr, and Horowitz are reviewing the basis for the counterintelligence investigation, which looks rather Nixonian. The FISA law was created so that another Nixon or J. Edgar Hoover in the future could ever do what it appears Obama, Brennan, Comey and Clapper did. nobsDie fascists! Make America Great! 21:09, 5 September 2019 (UTC)

I'm amazed you haven't figured out what happened yet. I'll thumb nail it here, and we'll see if Horowitz, Durham, and Judge Sullivan's order in the Flynn case bare me out.

In mid 2015, Brennan and Dearlove wanted to see Hillary elected. Both feared Trump would demand NATO pay more for its own defense, and Brennan wanted to be reappointed. Furthermore, Brennan knew Trump's chief advisor Flynn knew all about Obama's EO authorizing Hillary and Brennan to arm ISIS. Brennan set up a network that included Halper, a former SVR head named Vyacheslav Trubnikov, Christopher Steele, a mid-level Kremlin bureaucrat who became a CIA asset years earlier while working in Washington by the name of Oleg Smolenkov, and Mifsud, who was used unwittingly.

Trubnikov gave Steele the 'pee-pee' kompromat. Smolenkov supposedly gave Brennan high level information linking Putin to Russian meddling. Smolenkov later was extracted, paid, bought a million dollar home in D.C., and lived with his family under their real names after the Sergei Skripal attempted assassination. Steele's 'pee-pee' memo was used by the Obama DOJ and FBI to get a blanket surveillance warrant on the Trump campaign. Hillary and the DNC paid Steele for the information, who paid Trubnikov, who PIDOOMA'd it. Comey, McCabe, et al knew the information was bullshit before they lied to the FISA court. nobsDie fascists! Make America Great! 08:16, 15 September 2019 (UTC)

Not really. The situation is the same reason the Horowitz report is taking so long. Whistleblowers "were silenced" during the Mueller probe, and could only be heard after it was completed. Now we have Durham probe. Investigatory material cannot be disclosed to Congress or the public during the coarse of an investigation.
Oh, and Brennan is up to his eyelids; Brennan right now is the chief target of the Durham investigation. The Horowitz IG cp:FISA abuse report will shed more light on how much of a target he is.
And Hillary colluded with Russians to pay for the 'pee-pee' memo; it's been in all the papers. Even CNN, WaPo. and NYT have reported that. nobsDie fascists! Make America Great! 20:26, 16 September 2019 (UTC)

The problem with contradicting Trump is that you'll soon have to do it again, after consequences arise from his mistake and he then invents some bullshit to try and cover for it. Specifically this time around, it's his assertion that the Kurds are letting ISIS prisoners loose to try and draw us back in again. “Europe had a chance to get their ISIS prisoners, but didn’t want the cost. ‘Let the USA pay,’ they said... Kurds may be releasing some to get us involved.” His own words this morning, no dispute possible. Now if you'd gotten on board with the Trump party line like you should have, you'd be nodding vigorously at the suggestion of Perfidious Kurdistan. However since you've recognized abandoning Syria and the allies we've built there as the fool move it is, this evidence-free attempt to slander them might actually register as the desperate spin attempt it is.

I'll narrate the story from about 2012 up to opening of Crossfire Hurricane. if anyone wants a source citation for any statement, just ask. All this info is available from mainstream (open source) reporting:

FISA abuse started about June 2012, per FISA Judge Rosemary Collyer. Flynn had a falling out with Brennan, Clapper, and Obama over weapons supply to Syria rebels (which in 2014 became ISIS). The weapons supply was carried out by then CIA director Gen. Petraeus (per NYT). Petraeus was fired over his refusal to go along with the Benghazi cover story. Flynn was fired in 2014 for refusing to accept jihadis as allies in the war against Gadaffi and Assad. But Flynn knew too much. Brennan, Halper, and Mifsud tried to frame him up as a Russian asset to discredit him.

Through FISA 702 abuse (warrantless wiretaps), Brennan knew everything about George Papadopolous by late 2015. By December 2015, Brennan had Mifsud working to compromise both Flynn and Papadopolous.

Now I'll go off the record: In my opinion, Mifsud may have been used as a stooge, who didn't quite fully understand the ramifications of the tasks Brennan asked him to perform. His specialty is really Saudi Arabia, the Arab world, and India. I don't think he really understands European and American politics at the level of the people who used him. Whatever the case, it appears he wants to come clean now, and return to some semblance of a normal life.

If you begin as a broke bum, and your only source of income is the government payroll, and your net worth exceeds paid employment with certain adjustments for living expenses, then there may be cause for an emoluments investigations. However, if you begin as a greedy capitalist, donate a portion of your time to government service, continue capitalist operations employing people, providing services, and paying taxes, and there is no direct conflict of interest between your ongoing business operations and disbursements of public funds and contracts, there should be no cause for alarm.
Let's review the lease for moment: First off, Trump is paying the government rent on the lease; secondly, I'm assuming that it was was not a no-bid contract. And if it were, that wouldn't be Trump's problem, that would be some corrupt murtherfucking idiot in the gubmint (assuming the contract was awarded before Trump donated his valuable time, based on fair market value of his time, to government service. And being that the $450,000 per annum wage scale the gubmint pays the president, Trump would have a deductible loss to offset any gain he supposedly has from employment in government service). nobsNo border!

Rob, having foreign governments stay at Trump hotels which funnels money into Trump's pockets as a private citizen is a breach of the emoluments clause. The same applies when Trumps own staff rack up $1000 bar-tab at Trumps Florida Estate which is then paid by the taxpayer. Trump is mingling his private businesses with his public responsibility - this is why there is a emoluments clause. Secondly - yes a person has right to life, liberty and pursuit of prosperity within the confines of the law. You have already stated the constitution still applies, you can't have it both ways - either the constitution matters or not. If it does then Trump is restricted, like everyone else, by law on how he is able to pursue prosperity. Acei9 19:25, 1 November 2019 (UTC)
That's just bullshit. If you were familiar with the tax law, you'd know. Was it an emolument when George Washington ran the Executive Branch out of Mount Vernon? Would it be an emolument today if Trump moved Executive Branch operations to Trump Tower? (incidentally, it would be perfectly legal, and he'd be within his rights, to do that). And you still can't deprive a person of life, liberty, or his ability to pursue happiness via income without due process. And blame the criminals, malcontents, and murderers if wanna a bitch about a bar tab for Secret Service. If the taxpayers don't pick up the bar tab, then it's a bribe paid by Trump to the government.
Any disbursement of taxpayer funds requires due diligence. If that due diligence yields the fact that Trump Doral is best dollar spent for the G20, hell, that ain't Trump's fault. That's some other schmuck's fault for not buying Trump Doral first or building a better alternative site.

Rob your argument has two major flaws. Firstly you are equating Trump the president with Trump the private citizen. When Trump is a private citizen (whether the be in 1 year or 5) he can make money anyway he likes (being an ex-president is particularly lucrative) however as the president he is subject to laws other people are not. One of which is emoluments clause but Trump is using the power of the presidency to direct taxpayer money into the accounts of Trump the private citizen. He is also using the power of the presidency to pump foreign money into his private accounts. Both of which violate the emoluments clause. It's as simple as that. The biggest flaw in your argument however is that you know it is wrong because we both know if this was Obama you'd be shouting about corruption across RW and CP.

For an emolument, two basic elements must occur: (1) a quid pro quo redounding to some personal financial gain supported by evidence that the transaction (2) would not have occurred in the normal course of business. Actually, third factor would be necessary: proof of performance on the part of the office holder, that the officeholder took some action that was motivated by or the result of such a reward. nobsNo border! No Wall! No USA at All! 02:36, 2 November 2019 (UTC)
No, Rob. That is wrong. The emoluments clause mentions nothing of the sort. You can’t weasel word yourself out this - it’s is as basic as I’ve laid out. Face the facts - you just don’t give a shit because it’s Trump. Acei9 02:43, 2 November 2019 (UTC)
Under your alleged theory, any elected official with a retirement account that has stock in Wal Mart, Microsoft, Office Max, Craft Foods or any other company that does business with the government, is receiving an emolument. nobsNo border! No Wall! No USA at All! 15:45, 2 November 2019 (UTC)
No Rob. That is wrong. The Emoluments Clause covers both foreign governments or the federal government - not private companies. Secondly if an elected official with shares in the above companies were using their powers to enrich themselves through companies that would be called corruption. Why is it me, a NZ citizen, who is schooling you on your own laws? Trump is violating the constitution and you don’t care. I’d respect you more if you just admitted it. Acei9 17:55, 2 November 2019 (UTC)

──────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────── In fact, most Members of Congress and other elected officials hold stock in companies that regularly do business with the federal, state, and local governments. Your argument is basically anti-entrepreneurial - that because you can see a straight line from the owner of a privately held company to an elected official, therefore he should be forced to liquidate all his interests, place the proceeds in U.S. Treasury notes, and go on the public dole as a civil servant (which incidentally, holds stock in publicly traded companies that do business with the U.S. government in civil service retirement funds). No such law exists in the U.S..

As to the argument that foreign diplomats stay in Trump hotels, you'd still have to prove that (a) a quid pro quo existed; (b) the quid pro quo came about by a corrupt motive (i.e. a conspiracy between participants); (c) that the corrupt motive caused actions to be taken by the foreign government that ordinarily would not have occurred. If Trump Hotels worldwide have established themselves in the competitive market of hosting foreign diplomats, that would be tough to prove.

Granted, investigating the corrupt motives of a foreign government is entirely a subjective issue that the Senate would have to decide in an impeachment trial. OTOH, Members of Congress have historically accumulated vast wealth by investing in defense-related start-up companies (IPO) that produce defense-related technologies marketed to foreign governments (same is true in the biomedical field, but the revenues there primarily come domestically).

Then again, we'd also have to consider really the main issue. Typically, elected officials and high ranking appointed officials place their asset holdings into a blind trust. They refrain from direct management and consultation on decisions, and only receive quarterly financial reports. There is no law mandating this, but it has become the accepted practice to avoid the appearance of conflict of interest (btw, insider trading rules only apply to Wall Street bankers and brokers, not Congressional members or staffers). In the case of Donald Trump, whose assets primarily consist of real estate and ongoing businesses, not stock in publicly traded companies, Trump has turned over management of his affairs to a trustee, is son Donald Jr.. Now, someone may argue there is the appearance of a conflict of interest there, but that again would be hard to prove, given there is no law mandating this accepted practice in the first place. To go after the Trumps on these grounds would affect every member of congress and their staffs, that have used blind trusts and circumvention of insider trading rules to pad their own pockets. None, I suspect, are interested in upsetting the apple cart. nobsNo border! No Wall! No USA at All! 18:24, 2 November 2019 (UTC)

No Rob, that is wrong. The emoluments clause says nothing about a quid pro quo and doesn’t relate to the Stockmarket or private enterprise - it relates to taxpayer money and foreign money. It is as simple as I laid out: Firstly you are equating Trump the president with Trump the private citizen. When Trump is a private citizen (whether the be in 1 year or 5) he can make money anyway he likes (being an ex-president is particularly lucrative) however as the president he is subject to laws other people are not.

Your argument falls apart based on the fact that civil service retirement funds have money in multinational (i.e. foreign) stocks. As you say, a quid pro quo isn't needed - the fact McDonalds does business in China and federal pension funds hold McDonalds stock is enough.
Leftist street activists can bitch about emoluments, but when push comes to shove, I'd be amazed to see it even be an Article of Impeachment. And if so, that will be a wild ride in the Senate. My guess is they would dismiss the charge out of hand. OTOH, some Senators may wish to focus on these abuses and reforms, and allow Trump lawyers to present a defense. I can't think of one Democrat Senator who would rise to criticize these accepted practices. If Liz Warren or Bernie Sanders tried to push Emoluments (remember, Trump's assets are in real estate, not Wall Street), they'd have their asses handed to them by Democratic Congressional and party leadership. nobsNo border!

Rob, you are still wrong. The clause refers to taxpayer money or from a foreign state - not from stocks or private investments. I’m tired of repeating myself. Trump used his position to accept money from the taxpayer which isn’t part of his salary and from foreign heads if state - both violate the emoluments clause. Hunter Biden is not a federal employee and neither is Don Jnr so that’s just a dumb red herring. Also your own hypocrisy destroys your own argument. Just be a man and admit it. Acei9

So I'm looking for a smaller company to give me a dish on roof with a modem inside, but it still costs about the same as Xfinity. nobsEpstein didn't kill himself 02:48, 6 December 2019 (UTC)
@Ace McWicked We have fiber optic internet in this country too, it's usually installed by the landline companies, but there's also companies like Google Fiber and Crown Castle available in limited areas. I don't live in a city and I could get a dedicated fiber connection run to my house, I'd just have to pay a huge price for it. 2607:FB90:928B:DAF7:0:1A:45BD:9801 (talk) 03:13, 6 December 2019 (UTC)
@RobSmith, see what AT&T offers where you live. You may even be able to get fiber through them like Ace was talking about, and unlike my situation where they'd have to run the line from two streets over, it might actually be affordable. 2607:FB90:928B:DAF7:0:1A:45BD:9801 (talk) 03:17, 6 December 2019 (UTC)

Cernturylink[edit]

Unbelievable. While shopping for service I was transferred to an operator in India. They wanted a credit card number first in order to talk to custom service rep. And my local city council granted these guys a license to operate in my city. Now I need to rethink my positions on local and federal regulation. nobsEpstein didn't kill himself 03:21, 21 January 2020 (UTC)

I already rethought my position: I support full privatization of all government services in which Nobs indulges, at least until he moves to a libertarian paradise. Bongolian (talk) 03:48, 21 January 2020 (UTC)
If you're this put off by under-regulated monopolistic service providers, one can only imagine the full-blown socialist conversion you'll experience when you're fucked into bankruptcy by your insurance provider over a hospitalization. Semipenultimate (talk) 16:27, 21 January 2020 (UTC)

From 632 A.D. until 1996 A.D., Islamic law, culture, and traditions were in place. Then the Taliban outlawed gay pedophilia, putting them at odds with Shi'ism and the corrupting influences of American society and culture. nobsEpstein didn't kill himself 19:09, 22 January 2020 (UTC)

──────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────── Afghanistan didn't even become mostly Muslim until at least the 9th century.

Considering there was a 20% margin of error in the dating, I'll stand corrected. However the question of Muhammad's gay pedophilia remains hotly contested. Shi'ism and the Ayatollah's appear to be supportive. Whatever the case, the Taliban risks going against several Islamic and Afghan cultural traditions, whereas the American military under its Commander-in-Chief Barack Obama allegedly is tolerant. [12] nobsEpstein didn't kill himself 22:04, 23 January 2020 (UTC)
What, what? Who said the prophet Muhammad was a gay pedophile? I never heard of anyone saying that. I similarly haven't heard about the stuff you cite with the Shias. Even if it is true, the Shias and the Taliban hate each other anyway, and their being at each other's throats as inevitable. Also, PBS [htt ps://www.pbs.org/wgbh/pages/frontline/dancingboys/ says] the practice was "recently revived" which implies that it formerly was far less of a problem.𝔖𝔲𝔪𝔪𝔞 𝔄𝔱𝔥𝔢𝔬𝔩𝔬𝔤𝔦𝔠𝔞 (𝔮𝔲𝔢𝔯𝔢𝔩𝔦𝔰) (𝔰𝔠𝔯𝔦𝔭𝔱𝔲𝔯𝔞) 22:29, 23 January 2020 (UTC)
The Muhammad article makes a passing reference to it. The Ayatollah Khomeini is said have stated in 1979,
A man can quench his sexual lusts with a child as young as a baby. However, he should not penetrate. Sodomizing the baby is halal (allowed by sharia). If the man penetrates and damages the child, then he should be responsible for her subsistence all her life. This girl, however, does not count as one of his four permanent wives. The man will not be eligible to marry the girl’s sister. It is better for a girl to marry when her menstruation starts, and at her husband's house rather than her father's home. Any father marrying his daughter so young will have a permanent place in heaven [13]
and has bee accused of marrying a 4 year old girl. [14] I dunno, maybe it's just a Sunni/Saudi plot. nobsEpstein didn't kill himself 21:27, 24 January 2020 (UTC)
That's the key word: accused. Nobody ever proved anything. Tellingly, your source is a highly Islamophobic website that basically admits to being racist. Also, the ruling he wrote allows marriage to young girls, not boys. It is straight, not gay, pedophilia that he is condoning. I'm pretty sure, given that the U.S right has strong Saudi links, it's likely one of their plots.𝔖𝔲𝔪𝔪𝔞 𝔄𝔱𝔥𝔢𝔬𝔩𝔬𝔤𝔦𝔠𝔞 (𝔮𝔲𝔢𝔯𝔢𝔩𝔦𝔰) (𝔰𝔠𝔯𝔦𝔭𝔱𝔲𝔯𝔞) 19:01, 27 January 2020 (UTC)

Aid to Saudi Arabia is in the frontline of defense against Putin/Iranian aggression; withholding aid would be a high crime and impeachable offense, nobsEpstein didn't kill himself 01:10, 28 January 2020 (UTC)
Well, that depends. Was the aid approved through Congress? Is the witholding made in public through proper channels? Does the President benefit in any personal way? Does a transcript show clear evidence of a clumsy extortion attempt? And anecdotally, when any information is revealed, how much do the arguments and defenses change as a result i.e. have the defenders proceeded in any way from 'the President didn't do X' to 'X is not a crime when the President does it'? Semipenultimate (talk) 22:52, 29 January 2020 (UTC)

My statement addresses an approach to analysis as to whether or not power has been abused; at no point did I refer to SA or any other contents of whatever bucket of shit you were trying to stir.

So far it looks like this Leftist Chinese plot may be failing; rather than kill off all boomers and red state America, it looks like Democrat base among the homeless may take a real beating. This is why the CCP can't be trusted; they didn't coordinate with the DNC and Deep State in this reprisal action in the trade war. Pity. Such fools.

That's actually related to a question I've had for a week or so now. With the lockdown, Times Square is empty, or at least emptyish and devoid of tourists. The trains are empty. The parks are empty. What's happening with the homeless? They beg everyone that passes by for a few dollars in order to grab a bite to eat or (or, yes, drugs). That's stopped. So what are the homeless doing now? CoryUsar (talk) 21:52, 19 March 2020 (UTC)
The homeless are in serious trouble. It's a group that generally is not very well informed, doesn't pay attention to news, have underlying health conditions that place them at risk (alcoholism and drug addiction weaken immune protections), live in crowded unsanitary conditions, and generally are not very responsive to governmental directions. At the pace this virus travels, it could wipe out the homeless community before any single member was alerted or educated to the danger. nobsFree Roger Stone! 23:25, 19 March 2020 (UTC)
