Yo, a friend of mine made an amazing list about imortant and historical trans men!

A list of historical (and some recent) trans men since everyone likes to ignore the fact that we did in fact exist before Chaz Bono came out

(TW: transphobia, obviously, and r*pe)


• Hatshepsut (1479 - 1458 BC)
Hatshepsut was a female Egyptian
pharaoh, who went to great lengths to
present as a man, wearing male
clothing and a fake beard, took on
wives, and used both male and female
pronouns.
Though it cannot be definitively said
if Hatshepsut was a trans man or not,
a lot of the evidence points to that
being the case.

• Anonymous Man (16th century)
Henri Estienne wrote of a FTM man
who was burned alive for living as a
man, learning a trade, and taking a
wife. The man was outed by someone
who recognized him from their
hometown and when given the option
between death and living as a woman,
the man chose death.

• Jospeh Lobdell (1829 - 1912)
A frontier man and skilled marksman
who lived on the frontier with his wife
before being locked in an asylum for
insisting that he was a man.
Scholars used to label him as a lesbian
before it was revealed by his own
writings that he more likely was in fact
a trans man.

• Reed Erickson (1912 - 1992)
After inheriting his father’s fortune in
1962 and after transitioning in 1963,
Erickson launched the Erickson
Educational Foundation in 1964 and
through that laid the foundation for
several trans activism organizations
like the Harry Benjamin International
Gender Dysphoria Association,
Paul Walker’s Janus Information
Service, Sister Mary Elizabeth’s and
Jude Patton’s J2CP, and several
others.
He was also an alternate health
practices supporter and funded
research on homeopathy and
acupuncture.

• Billy Tipton (1914 - 1989)
An American jazz musician from 1936
to 1970, Tipton began presenting as
male full time in 1940, with only his
two cousins knowing his assigned
gender.
To avoid explaining his breasts and his
lack of package, he would tell women
that he had been in a serious car
accident that resulted in damaged
genitals and broken ribs that he had to
keep wrapped constantly.
No one knew he was trans until he
died and and it was revealed by the
autopsy.

• Dr. Alan L. Hart (1890 - 1962)
An American physician, radiologist,
TB researcher, writer and novelist.
Alan L. Hart was one of the first trans
men to have a hysterectomy and a
gonadectomy in the US and his
research on TB detection saved
thousands of lives.
He presented as a boy as a child and
was encouraged by his grandparents
and parents to do so, and was listed as
his grandparent’s grandson in their
obituaries. He’s was recorded as
always begging to cut his hair, wear
boy clothes, and would refer to himself
as a boy as a child.
He’s the first documented trans man
in the united states. His doctor who
helped with his transition described
him as “extremely intelligent and not
mentally ill, but afflicted with
a mysterious disorder for which I have
no explanation” and said that “from a
sociological and psychological
standpoint [Hart] is a man”.
Not only was he a man of medicine but
he was also a fiction writer, and such
a lot of his fiction writing reflected his
own experiences and feelings.

• Michael Dillon (1915 - 1962)
The first FTM person to have a
phalloplasty. He’s also believed to be
the first FTM person to undergo hrt.
While in the hospital with a head injury
he met a plastic surgeon who gave
him a double mastectomy and a note
to help get his birth certificate
changed.
Dillon performed SRS on Roberta
Cowell, the first British trans woman to
receive SRS, but because Dillon had
not completed his medical training the
surgery was considered illegal.
Later on he ended up devoting the
rest of his life to Buddhism in India.

• “Little Axe” Broadnax (1916 - 1992)
Little Axe was an American gospel
singer. I couldn’t find much on his
personal life, but he was apart of
several gospel groups between the
1940’s and 1980’s.
He was not discovered to be trans
until his death in 1992.

• Lou Sullivan (1951 - 1991)
An American author and activist, and
also one of the first trans men to
publicly identify as gay. He’s heavily
credited to the modern understanding
of gender identity and sexuality being
different things.
As a child, he would write in his journal
about being confused about his
identity, and expressed his ideas of
wishing he were a man and wanting to
be a gay man there from a young age.
He moved away from Milwaukee in
1975 to San Francisco so he could
have easier access to not only hrt but
a more understanding community. His
family was supportive of this move and
gave him a man’s suit and his
grandfather’s pocket watch as going
away presents.
In San Francisco, he lived openly as
a gay trans man but was denied SRS
constantly because of his sexuality,
since at the time trans people were
expected to adhere to a more
heterosexual lifestyle. He finally had
SRS in 1986.
He was diagnosed as HIV positive in
the same year, and said afterwards:
“I took a certain pleasure in informing
the gender clinic that even though
their program told me I could not live
as a Gay man, it looks like I’m going to
die like one.”
As an adult he was active in the
Gateway Gender Alliance, which was
one of the first educational
organizations that offered support for
FTM people. He was an editor for The
Gateway,
a newsletter with “news
and information on transvestism and
transsexualism” that originally primarily
focused on MTF issues, but started to
also talk about FTM issues under his
editing.
He was a founding member of the
GLBT Historical Society in San
Francisco, he founded FTM
International - an organization
specifically for trans men - and was a
huge advocate for gay trans men, and
gay trans people in general.
He ended up passing due to HIV
related complications.

• Brandon Teena (1972 - 1993)
TW: r*pe, assault/violence, murder

Brandon Teena was raped and
murdered at age 21 for being trans.
He asserted that he was male from a
young age and began identifying as
a man during adolescence. He would
constantly reject school dress code by
dressing masculinely.
When he was 18 he tried to join the US
army but failed to enter after listing his
sex as male.
In 1993 he began living as a man full
time and associating with John L.
Lotter, Tom Nissen, and Lana Tisdel.
During a Christmas Eve party, Nissen
and Lotter forced Brandon to pull
down his pants revealing that he was
trans. They forced him into a car, drove
to a nearby meat packing plant, and
raped him. They then took him to
Nissen’s house, where they told
Brandon to shower, allowing him to
escape out the bathroom window and
to Tinsel’s house.
They went to the ER where while
Brandon was having a rape kit done,
he was asked invasive, rude, and
unnecessary questions about him
being trans so they left.
When Nissen and Lotter found out
about the police report and rape kit
they started a hunt for Brandon, and
eventually found him on December
31st when they shot and killed him and
the two other people in the house
where he was staying. Brandon was
also stabbed in the chest to ensure he
was dead.
He’s had two movies made on his life
a documentary called The Brandon
Teena Story
and movie called Boys
Don’t Cry.

Some more recent trans men include:

• Thomas Beatie - in 2007 was the first
trans man to become pregnant
through artificial insemination after
finding out his wife was infertile.

• Balian Buschbaum - a former German
pole-vaulting champion. He competed
during the early 2000s and retired in
2007 to transition

• Chaz Bono - son of Sonny and Cher,
he is a writer, musician, and activist

• Ian Harvie - a comedian and actor, he
was in Transparent and Roadtrip
Nation

• Buck Angel - a former adult film star
and producer, and is now a trans
activist, writer, and speaker

There are obviously many, many other well known current trans guys out there, but those are just some ✌️

The history of trans guys is often overlooked and/or forgotten, so hopefully you learned something from this

Exploring in Colorado

(With reference to this post here)

Required supplies:

  • Water
  • more than that.
  • I’m not kidding people die of dehydration more than anything else I’m talking 2 liters minimum.
  • snacks
  • first-aid and survival kit including after-bite, splint supplies and emergency signalling devices, and a thermal blanket.  I am absolutely not kidding people get lost a mile from the road and die of exposure.
  • Map, your phone won’t work more than a mile from city limits.
  • change of socks.
  • something iron.
  • an offering or three.  you might not need any, you might need all of them.

Etiquette:

  • Always close any gate you open. Even if the fence around it is gone.  Both from a spiritual perspective and becuase there’s a nonzero chance the farm isn’t abandoned and the livestock is lurking in the scrub.
  • Cattle will stare at you.  As long as they’re on the other side of the fence or river or ditch it’s fine.  If there’s no barrier you need to leave.  Range cattle fight coyotes and cougar and the worst of winter and don’t give a single fuck about you.
  • That’s not lore Range Cattle will fucking kill you.
  • Never approach any horse, but especially the ones without humans.  They’re either fae or feral and the odds of them eating your hands are about the same.
  • Drink your water.
  • There are Others in Colorado, but the relationship is not nearly so adversarial out here.  They’re like your neighbors but only sometimes corporeal.  Mind your manners and obey any posted signage and you’ll be fine.
  • posted signage includes trees fallen across paths or washed-out sections of trail (trail closed), bits of dead animal on stumps or fence posts (occupied, fuck off) and the smell of urine (Mountain lion or bear turn right the fuck around)
  • Don’t eat anything you find there unless you brought a permit for it with you.  Anyone who says you can forage on public land is a liar and going to get their ass poisoned or cursed.
  • If you did bring a permit, leave an offering anyway.  The Law of Man is not the same as The Law of Mountains and you need to pay taxes in both.
  • Salute magpies, and any bird larger than them.
  • Everyone going uphill yields going to everyone going downhill, regardless of whether or not they’re human or real.
  • If you’re over 7000 feet and you seem to have picked up another member to your party, it’s just the mountain wondering what’s happening.  It’s like bird watching for them.  Be polite, pick up your trash and call the mountain whatever name it gives you.
  • Drink your fucking water.
  • If you feel like you’re being followed, especially at dusk, you absolutely turn around and tell whatever’s behind you you know they’re there.  This is becuase it’s almost certainly coyotes and they need to be told to fuck off.  If you can see what’s following you, face it and walk calmly backwards towards civilization until it goes away or you’re back in your car.  If you can’t see what it is, tell it you’re headed home now, then you can turn back around and proceed calmly back from whence you came.
  • Do not, under any circumstances, run.
  • things that run are meant to be chased and everything up here is faster than you are.
  • also you’ll fall off a fucking cliff.
  • If you get back to the car or edge of the wild space and still feel like you’re being followed, check your shoes, pockets and any baggage for extras and leave them.  If you’re STILL being followed, they’re being rude and you’re allowed to chuck a rock at them.
  • I’m not kidding about the water.
  • Don’t go into any “abandoned” buildings because 1. there’s a nonzero chance the building isn’t actually abandoned and then you have to explain to the rancher what the fuck you’re doing on their land 2. if it is abandoned it’s probably structurally unstable 3. the only things inside are rattlesnakes and tetanus.
  • Exception to above: if you hear thunder, you’re close enough to be struck. you can step inside then, but do not touch anything, especially the building it’self.
  • You are encouraged to walk out to abandoned tractors and plowshares and touch them.  Don’t move them but stop to say hi and have some water.
  • If you find human remains, don’t panic.  If they’re out there, they wanted to be found.  Write down (you won’t be able to remember later, trust me) where you found them and inform the park service/police as soon as possible.
  • Drink your water.

Wanna take over my wife's job after her maternity leave? get yourself pushed out of the company instead.

LTL, FTP. I have almost no direct involvement in this tale. I’m writing it on behalf of my wife.

Sorry for the wall of text… TL;DR at the bottom. This story happened (ended) two weeks ago.

Background:

We live in a country that needs a lot of improvement on laws, their application and enforcement…. we are a lot better than a few years back, but still sometimes people can get away with forging some types of documents, like medical records, education degrees etc. Also, english is not our main language, so job titles, degrees and other details are translated to their best equivalence.

According to our country’s labor laws:

  • All female employees are entitled to 3 months paid maternity leave.
  • Employers, at their own expense, are expected to cover for the employees on maternity leave, usually with temp workers.
  • Severance payments are mandatory when firing employees (without justified cause… crime, fraud, etc) with more than 3 months on their jobs, so that’s the time limit to be considered a temp employee.
  • Severance payment calculation is rather complicated, but for firing people employed 4 years or less, it usually boils down to about 4 months of salary.
  • To fire Pregnant women, employers have to pay them 6 months of salary on top of the severance payment they’re entitled to.
  • If an employee quits voluntarily, they effectively forfeit all benefits previously mentioned.

Trump revealed highly classified information to Russian foreign minister and ambassador
The president was boasting of the ‘great intel’ he receives when he discussed intelligence provided by a U.S. partner.
By https://www.facebook.com/greg.jaffe.5

President Trump revealed highly classified information to the Russian foreign minister and ambassador in a White House meeting last week, according to current and former U.S. officials, who said that Trump’s disclosures jeopardized a critical source of intelligence on the Islamic State.

The information Trump relayed had been provided by a U.S. partner through an intelligence-sharing arrangement considered so sensitive that details have been withheld from allies and tightly restricted even within the U.S. government, officials said.

The partner had not given the United States permission to share the material with Russia, and officials said that Trump’s decision to do so risks cooperation from an ally that has access to the inner workings of the Islamic State. After Trump’s meeting, senior White House officials took steps to contain the damage, placing calls to the CIA and National Security Agency.

“This is code-word information,” said a U.S. official familiar with the matter, using terminology that refers to one of the highest classification levels used by American spy agencies. Trump “revealed more information to the Russian ambassador than we have shared with our own allies.”

[…]

In his meeting with Lavrov, Trump seemed to be boasting about his inside knowledge of the looming threat. “I get great intel. I have people brief me on great intel every day,” Trump said, according to an official with knowledge of the exchange.

Trump went on to discuss aspects of the threat that the United States only learned through the espionage capabilities of a key partner. He did not reveal the specific intelligence gathering method, but described how the Islamic State was pursuing elements of a specific plot and how much harm such an attack could cause under varying circumstances. Most alarmingly, officials said, Trump revealed the city in the Islamic State’s territory where the U.S. intelligence partner detected the threat.

[…]

“Russia could identify our sources or techniques,” the senior U.S. official said. A former intelligence official who handled high-level intelligence on Russia said that given the clues Trump provided, “I don’t think that it would be that hard [for Russian spy services] to figure this out.”

At a more fundamental level, the information wasn’t the United States’ to provide to others. Under the rules of espionage, governments — and even individual agencies — are given significant control over whether and how the information they gather is disseminated even after it has been shared. Violating that practice undercuts trust considered essential to sharing secrets.

The officials declined to identify the ally, but said it is one that has previously voiced frustration with Washington’s inability to safeguard sensitive information related to Iraq and Syria.

[…]

U.S. officials said that the National Security Council continues to prepare multi-page briefings for Trump to guide him through conversations with foreign leaders but that he has insisted that the guidance be distilled to a single page of bullet points, and often ignores those.

“He seems to get in the room or on the phone and just goes with it — and that has big downsides,” the second former official said. “Does he understand what’s classified and what’s not? That’s what worries me.”

…lock him up?

Service dogs

For those of you who get confused on the terminology.

From a legal standpoint: service dogs should be viewed as medical equipment

From a person standpoint: a furry friend that saves us on a daily basis.

We’re not saying they’re medical equipment, they have the legal rights of medical equipment, we know they’re living breathing things and we respect them as such.

The Axes of Astrology

Within Astrology there are 6 sets of signs and houses. The 12 signs are paired off in opposition representing dual sides of a certain concept or notion, in turn the houses associated with these signs can be similarly grouped. The cusps of these houses are known as axes within a chart, each one representing a different integral part of a personality or one’s nature.

The first axis – The Axis of Identity

               This axis is the axis of the 1st and 7th houses, also known as the ascendant and descendant. It is associated with the signs of Aries♈ and Libra♎, and is the place where we define who we are, both as individuals and as members of society.

The second axis – The Axis of Possession

The axis of the 2nd and 8th houses. It is associated with the signs of Taurus♉ and Scorpio♏, and is where we try to find value within ourselves and our relationships with others.

The third axis – The Axis of Information

               The 3rd//9th house axis is associated with Gemini♊ and Sagittarius♐. This axis shows us how we both gather and disseminate information, of both a mundane and higher nature.

The fourth axis – The Axis of Security

The cusps of the 4th and 10th houses are known by a few names, such as the Nadir//Imum Coeli and Midheaven//Medium Coeli, but regardless these houses are associated with the signs of Cancer♋ and Capricorn♑ . The axis of security shows us how we build the foundations of safety and security for ourselves, both privately and publicly.

The fifth axis – The Axis of Ego

               The cusps of the 5th and 11th house make up this axis, and it is associated with Leo♌ and Aquarius♒. It is here that we express ourselves both individually and in group settings, and it is also here that we give and receive love from the world.

The sixth axis – The Axis of Service

               The 6th and 12th houses make up the Axis of Service, being associated with the signs of Virgo♍ and Pisces♓ respectively. Here is where we give service to others. It is the place in which we sacrifice for others, giving to them both materially and spiritually in order to heal the ailments of the body and soul.

Okay, but I’d kill for more backstory on Roy’s childhood. Arakawa gives us just this brief glimpse of his relationship with Madame Christmas, but the implications have got me spinning. Like, you’re telling me Roy was adopted and raised by this bar owner, who actually just uses the bar as a cover to run a covert information gathering service by weaponzing the agency and sexuality of young women. Like hot damn that’s cool. We’re talking about this army of 20-something-year-old women who make their living off undercover missions, digging out Central’s darkest filthiest secrets, and they do this by seducing the horny old men in charge of these operations. 

Like, I’m betting Roy grew up with about two dozen older sisters, who’d sit by the mirror, applying make-up in the dim fluorescent lighting of the bar’s backroom, chatting about what embezzlers, what traffickers, what corrupt politicians they had “dates” with that night. 8-year-old Roy sitting there on a barstool reluctantly doing math homework and listening in on how “General Lucibella” has been cheating on his wife for 6 months now and has shelled out 60,000 cenz in bribes to keep his underlings quiet.

And even better—this influence is so damn obvious in Roy’s character! I’ll bet every last penny I have that all his “womanizing” tendencies directly stem from this—because Roy weaponizes his sexuality. He puts on this air of being constantly flirtatious to divert suspicion from himself. Roy has built a mask for himself entirely focused on promiscuity–he doesn’t seem like an upstart, he’s just into power and rank because he’s a cocky tail-chaser. He constantly chats up Olivier Armstrong after her transfer because (clearly) he’s got the hots for her, and not at all because he’s quietly working out the details of a military-wide coup meant to take out the homunculi. Hell, he even gets Grumman’s cooperation by having Madame Christmas contact him and passing it off as Grumman having an “interested lady caller”. And Roy pulls it off. He gets the homunculi running in circles, and does it entirely by acting like an oaf of a flirt.

Between his cover with “Elizabeth”, his flirting with Olivier to pass on and gather dangerous information, and his couple “dates” with the girls working under Madame Christmas to gather intel and confirm Selim’s lack of a proper history, Roy succeeds in solidifying an entire military uprising, without the homunculi’s knowledge, while being constantly watched.

The little bit we know about his childhood is so intrinsically linked to who he is as a tactition. It’s just so, so good and I want so, so much more of it.

It is International Week of the Deaf this year it’s all about Full Inclusion with Sign Language! 

([image text; purple background header, white font INTERNATIONAL WEEK OF THE DEAF 2017, 18 to 24 September. [orange font] 
THEME: [purple font] [black font] FULL INCLUSION WITH SIGN LANGUAGE! International Week of The Deaf 2017 takes place under the theme ‘Full Inclusion with Sign Language!!’. It is in tandem with the 3rd International Conference of the World Federation of the Deaf and believes that full social inclusion of deaf people is possible when sign language is recognised and used widely within the society. International Week of the Deaf 2017 stresses the importance of sign language. Without the actual recognition, facilitation and promotion of it, the rights outlined in the United Nations Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities and the recently adopted 2030 Agenda and its Sustainable Development Goals cannot be fully achieved.
[orange font] CAMPAIGN
[purple font] KEY MESSAGES [green background box, white font] BIRTH RIGHT - [grey background box, black font] Draws upon the principle of basic human rights in relation to language acquisition at birth. When acquired fast, it enables deaf children to have full communication with people, improving their cognitive and social skills. Deaf children need access to sign language from birth.

[orange background box, white font] DEAF IDENTITY - [grey box, black font] Identifies deaf people as belonging to a cultural and linguistic community, who use sign language as a mother tongue or natural language to communicate.

[yellow background box, white font] ACCESSIBILITY - [grey background box, black font] stresses that deaf people need access to public information and services via sign language interpreting, subtitling and/or close-captioning. A key factor to accessibility for public services such as health care, employment, social activities or any other government services is provision of and access to sign language. 

[purple background box, white font] EQUAL EMPLOYMENT OPPORTUNITIES - [grey background box, black font] Sign language competency for communication and provision of interpreters mean that deaf people can do almost any job. It is important for deaf people to equally aspire securing jobs that reflect their interest and competency. The main barriers to employment arise from accessible work environments rather than an inability to hear.

[green background box, white font] LIFELONG LEARNING - [grey background box, black font] Access to education, vocational learning, and ongoing progessional training and development is key to gaining and retaining a job and earning a wage that allows independent living.

[orange background box, white font] EQUAL PARTICIPATION - [grey background box, black font] Deaf people need to have equal access to participation in the personal, public and political area as everybody else. More importantly, it is necessary to ensure that deaf people have the opportunity to take up leadership roles, so that deaf people themselves can appropriately advocate for their rights and be involved in all decision-making processes concerning their lives. This is a reflection of the slogan 'Nothing About Us without Us’.

[yellow background box, white font] BILINGUAL EDUCATION - [grey background box, black font] Urges stakeholders to accept the need for bilingual education for a deaf child and to understand how quality bilingual education should be provided in a sign language environment. Bilingual education is a social-cultural approach of using sign language of instruction in all subjects with a parallel strong emphasis on teaching, reading and writing of the language used in the country or society.

[purple background box, white font] EQUAL LANGUAGE - [grey background box, black font] Recognises sign language as a valid, linguistic means of conveying thoughts, ideas and emotions. It is a fully operating language with its own syntax, morphology and structure. It fulfils all features serve to define the notion of a language. This has been confirmed in many systematic linguistic research on sign language since the late 1970s.

In the middle of all the text boxes there is a logo of two hands touching with the words 'FULL INCLUSION WITH SIGN LANGUAGE’ and at the bottom of the page, the logo for World Federation of the Deaf, International Week of the Deaf, and a barcode with the word 'donate’ underneath.])

Thank you @elixiire for providing the image description

Today, on “Forcearama Once Again Takes You Through A Highlight From This Absolutely Hilarious Star Wars Legends Book, The Jedi Path”: we learn that we must be good Padawans and not make our Jedi Masters look bad by doing things like hanging out in bars or getting high, something that I am so sure no Jedi ever do (just like they never do any of the other thousand things they aren’t supposed to do, like fall in love with each other and get people pregnant and turn to the fucking Dark Side.)

PLEASE NOTE WHICH FORMER PADAWAN OWNER OF THIS BOOK TOOK EXCEPTION TO THIS GUIDELINE. I love that he tries to claim that it’s purely in service of the mission, too. Sure, Kenobi. You can get “excellent information” there. The fact that they serve booze at these places is totally not a plus for you. 

Who among us is surprised? Hmm? Hands?

So, this is in the Jedi Guidebook, and not only was Obi-Wan like BUT WAIT BARS CAN BE USEFUL FOR STUFF, he then also proceeded to take his OWN Padawan to a bar.

This guy. I swear to God.

4 years later and this show drags me right back down into hell, Invader Zim owns my ass

Not quite human Zim, just an AU where he and gir have a believable disguise. Dib’s not sure what Zim is, he has his suspicions but no actual proof so for now they’re just sorta buddies
Gir’s a service doggo since he can follow Zim anywhere and collect information which lbr he doesnt do at all

Public Service PSA Service Announcement:

I feel it is my duty to inform you of the total BS that is Inalla, Archmage Ritualist.

That Eminence ability is insane. There is literally no reason to actually cast this commander in your deck, she does everything you want her to do while sitting in your command zone and there’s nothing your opponents can do about it (that’s the issue, by the way). Oh, did a Wizard enter the battlefield from anywhere? Pay a mana and get a copy of it. Now you have two.

Hey, here’s an idea.

Why not tap those two wizards to put another one into play from your hand? And don’t pretend you don’t have any in there, it’s Wizards. You probably have about 20 cards in your hand.

Oh hey, that creature that just entered for free is a Wizard, why not pay a mana to make a copy? Now I have two more wizards for the low low price of one generic mana!

Two Wizards, you say? Well. Why not tap them to put another one into play for free???? And thus the beat goes on until you’ve played everything.

Oh, and don’t even think of using Sundial of the Infinite to exile all the delayed “exile this token” triggers at the end of your turn, thus keeping them permanently. That would be rude.

This is what I had to put up with yesterday.

Cast that new Bloodline Necromancer, pay a mana, get two. One targets Vindictive Lich, one Targets Disciple of Bolas. They both return from the graveyard to play. Pay two mana, get a second copy of each. Sacrifice the Liches to the Disciples, draw 8, make everyone else’s lives miserable.

All because you have this permanent “emblem” in your command zone from the start of the game. Take it from me kids, don’t play this commander unless you want a really good Wizard tribal deck.

Trump Gave His Kids A Big Stake In Huge Government Deal, Document Shows
A key document obtained by BuzzFeed News shows how the GOP nominee took control of a taxpayer-owned landmark near the White House with only a $2.4 million equity investment. He also gave more than 22%
By Aram Roston, Daniel Wagner

Now that Trump’s General Services Administration has decided Trump isn’t violating its lease–even though he is obviously an “elected official of the Government of the United States,” which the lease expressly prohibits from having “any share or part of this Lease” or “any benefit that may arise therefrom”–he and his kids can rake in the profits.
