Jesus found me and accepted me just as I was....flawed. Thanks for the good wishes. He loves you just as much- it's up to you to accept it. Thanks for the note!
This is a lie, because you worship a mortal man.

I will give them credit for timing. They admitted that they did withhold aid from Ukraine to pressure them to investigate Biden AND announced they were thumbing their nose at the Constitution and having the G7 at Trump's property all about 30 minutes before the ceasefire in Syria was announced. Do it brazenly and publicly and then make sure it's buried with another story.

The constitution is clear on having G7 events at hotels owned by the president.

Perfect. So Trump can own a place and foreign dignitaries can stay there as long as he does not profit. He does not profit if he sells it at cost.
A) You're totally making up the "as long as he does not profit" thing. Any compensation is an emolument.



B) We've already seen what Trump considers "at cost" and it's clearly "at a considerable profit."

C) Even if he runs it at a loss, the publicity has value.

D) If you assume Doral would not otherwise have had full occupancy, Trump gains by filling a large number of rooms that would have otherwise gone unused.

Dumb. Just stop, and enjoy the next 5 years of #KAG

If he lets every single foreign government official stay there free, he still gets the publicity, but he would have an argument. Accepting any $ clearly violates it. The Fellas don't care. Corruption is OK if done while Republican.

I’m not ok with it. But you are ok with corruption done by Dems.

You have no problem with Dem politicians getting paid through their family, Hunter Biden making millions from a corrupt Ukraine company and China or Bill Clinton making $500K for a speech for the Russians while Hillary was the likely Dem nominee for the president.

Hypocrite.

This is why I get so nasty to you.

I wish I could be paid $500 K for standing outside the Kremlin walls to hurl insults at Putin without even being a Presidential candidate. Would I be wrong for taking the money if I could also get out alive from Russia?

If Hunter Biden did something illegal, lock him up. Politicians getting insane amounts for speeches has happened forever on both sides. I don't really care about that. Neither do you. You can hire Trump to give your Fox News Watchers club a speech. Pay him as much as you like.

Publicity? Trump's properties are in heavy need of advertising? I guess there could be some folks in Sierra Leone that don't know about some of his properties.

Again, it's very possible to sell influence while at the same time running a net loss in your personal business.

Since KGF now is worried about easily recognizable conflicts of interest now. There are 54 pages of them.

Always have worried about legitimate conflicts of interest. Most especially ones where the VP’s son is collecting millions of dollars by using his name for influence with corrupt Ukraine corporations and state owned Chinese banks when he has absolutely no legitimate expertise or experience for making that money.

No. You're a hypocrite who doesn't give a single $%%^ about Trump's mountains of conflicts of interest and only became obsessed with Hunter Biden 4 years after the fact when it became politically expedient, just like Don.

Weird, Cramer is from North Dakota and one of his biggest donors owns a little business there:


I guess it's good they have Cramer on their side:

Further, the company's checkered past with criminal activity, pollution fines, environmental infractions and a federal sexual harassment suit has cost Fisher Industries government business in the past. So has a 2005 federal conviction of David Fisher, Tommy's and Micheal's brother, for child pornography

Grand Forks Herald (June)

If only there was a latin phrase for this kind of transaction.
