anonymous asked:

Trump jr just tweeted out undeniable evidence of intent to collude with Russia. What now? When do the trials begin? I mean, if shit doesnt go down because of this then America is vonfirmed dead.

intent to collude with Russia”

It’s not a silver bullet. At least in the way people want it out to be.

https://twitter.com/DonaldJTrumpJr/status/884789418455953413

A tabloid reporter and music producer, Rob Goldstone, was writing on behalf of Emin Agalarov, who claims his father met with the crown prosecutor of the Russian Government

First of all, Russia doesn’t have a crown prosecutor in their government.

Second of all, Emin Agalarov is a mediocre russian pop star:

Which is why the email from Goldstone says, “Ok he’s on stage in Moscow but should be off within 20 Minutes so I’m sure can call”

But in any case, as in the embedded image, Goldstone promises “high level and sensitive information” that’s “part of Russia and it’s government’s support for Mr. Trump.” These documents “would incriminate Hillary and her dealings with Russia and would be very useful to your father,” which i assume is in relation to the Uranium deal? Or? Maybe? Even though it’s already publicly known?

So the smoking gun is a trust fund kid who heard his developer daddy who has been rewarded with contracts from the Russian government met with a guy from a non-existent position in the government. Also he knows a guy who works at nintendo…. lmao

So Trump Jr. is hooked up with Natalia Veselnitskaya, who finally arrives in new york, and from all parties involved, apparently just talks about lifting the Magnitsky Act, a US law that withholds visas and freeze assets belonging to officials responsible for the death of Sergei Magnitsky, who died in prison after investigating fraud involving Russian tax officials.

Natalia Veselnitskaya spends time representing Russian interests in the USA, including how last year, she was in New York representing her family friend, Denis Katsyv, who owns the investment firm Prevezon Holdings, which allegedly helped launder money linked to the $230 million tax fraud exposed by Sergei Magnitsky.

In any case, if this meeting ACTUALLY HAD valuable information about “Hillary and her dealings with Russia,” then how come Trump never dropped this info during the campaign?

It all seems to better fit a scenario where a lobbyist baited one of Trump’s beta orbiter sons into a meeting so she can indeed shill for her client’s own pet issues unrelated to what was promised in the email.

Read in between the lines: if Russia ABSOLUTELY DID actively collude with the Trump campaign, why would Trump Jr. need to go through a musician to get internal russian information when, if what shills for the russia narrative say is certain, Trump and his campaign have a direct line to Putin and his government via trusted and skilled agents? Shouldn’t the email instead say “hey thanks, but we’re good, we got our own contacts already ;D”?

Or just, having to work around celebrity connections to get in contact with Trump seems like a very tedious and unsecured way to chat with campaign figures within the Trump Train, considering American intelligence capacities and procedures that can easily intercept it. Why would Russian intelligence and government figures make this critical mistake, risking exposing their operation and seeing their favourite candidate ruined in the polls for it?

If anything, this all works against the case for collusion once you really begin to deconstruct it. 

But all that aside, it doesn’t change the fact that Trump Jr. SOUGHT this information from a foreign government. But intent to collude is not evidence of collusion. So until, and if investigations glean anything from this that goes beyond how the New York Times spun it, it’ll just be another inconclusive and frustrating dead end along with all the other dead ends before it. However, Trummp Jr. may be booked for violating campaign finance laws, but otherwise, this is more liberal pavlov’s dog RUSSSSIAAA noise where the mention of RUSSIA and COLLUSION = FUCKING CONFIRMED!!!

When do the trials begin?

If trump were guilty, why the fuck hasnt he been arrested by now?

I mean, if shit doesnt go down because of this then America is vonfirmed dead.             

or maybe the narrative? this is like chasing a purple dragon. This is like trying to prove Obama was born in kenya and liberals will be impotently chasing it for years

this shit is compelling but, considering that the New York Times also reported repeatedly that Iran was responsible for 9/11, y’all should be wary about the bias of it’s editorial staff with regards to BREAKING NEWS about the perennial enemies of the neoconservative world view

varterral  asked:

tell me more about golden lovers trutherism I'd like to accept it into my heart and into my life

Ah, welcome, I’m glad you are open to The Good News.

You know, I’m not sure what the future of Golden Lovers Trutherism holds! 

So a “truther” is someone who believes a conspiracy theory, ie they are fervently invested in the “truth” being something other than the conventionally accepted narrative. Good examples of this are 9/11 truthers (Bush did 9/11 or knew about it, or helped the Saudis, etc.) and Obama birthplace truthers (later called just “birthers”), ie people who believed against every piece of evidence presented to them that President Obama was born in Kenya (ie racist dumpsterfolk). It’s not a positive term.

Since I started this blog, I have used the phrase/tag “Golden Lovers Trutherism” to basically mean variously “they were actually in love irl” or “they are gonna reunite” and things of that nature; the implication being that I was irrationally holding out hope for the best and gayest and most epic love story in all of wrestling. I’m such an unabashed Ibushi mark and, as fucking depressing and cynical as I am, I’m a goddamn sap. To me there is nothing sweeter in the world than a good love story, except a fuckin gay as hell good love story. 

I’m not saying what’s kayfabe and what isn’t, and truthfully that’s beside the point. I mean I want everyone in the world to be happy and queer, but whatever their relationship is or was isn’t my business, much as I may joke. But as A Homo, having an undeniably gay love story play out, not for laughs but for Feels, in a sport sometimes synonymous with toxic masculinity, by two of the best in the world (one of whom is my forever fave!), would mean more than I can really express. Hell, even if they were like “yo we have totally just been quietly married for the last 5 years but it’s not really gonna be A Thing in kayfabe”, that would still be amazing. Kayfabe or no, representation matters.

So basically I was like “I care about this stupid thing far more than I should or is reasonable, and there’s no reason to imagine it’s anything but dead, but I’m gonna stan for it anyway and keep the faith.” It’s weird to remember that only like a month ago, the only Golden Lovers Trutherist evidence we had to go on was Kenny’s dramatic ass occasionally subtweeting Kota, or one of them doing one of the other’s signature moves. Like every fucking gay love story, it was subtle, played in subtext and innuendo, and complete with fanboys contorting themselves into knots to pretend that it was All Very Heterosexual.

But, it turns out that all along, the most dedicated Golden Lovers Truther of all was Kenny Omega, and now there may be no more need for Trutherism. Maybe there will just be the truth.

Fact checking the second debate

9:30 p.m.: Trump continues to insist Clinton’s 2008 campaign launched Barack Obama citizenship conspiracy theories

Trump, who was an aggressive leader of the birther movement which insisted President Barack Obama was actually born in Kenya, is not a U.S. citizen, and thus is an illegitimate president, repeated a common misrepresentation of the origins of the theory. Numerous fact checks have concluded the Clinton campaign did not, in fact, launch the birther movement.

9:48 p.m.: Trump: “I was against the war in Iraq. It has not been debunked.”
Trump repeatedly insisted he was against the war in Iraq. But in 2002 before the war began, when radio host Howard Stern asked him if he supported overthrowing Saddam Hussein’s government, he responded: “Yeah, I guess so.”

9:52 p.m.: Trump insists he was endorsed by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement

Trump repeated a claim that he was endorsed by ICE. That would be big if true, seeing as ICE is a federal agency whose director, Sarah R. Saldana, is an Obama appointee. Trump was actually endorsed by a union of ICE employees, which is not the same.

10:03 p.m.: Trump misrepresents his tax plan — and Clinton’s

Trump said his tax plan was about “cutting  taxes for the middle class, and I will tell you, we’re cutting them big-league for the middle class. And Hillary Clinton is raising your taxes, folks. Really high.”

In August, economists told the Washington Post those details of Trump’s tax plan which had been released actually indicated he was more concerned with lowering taxes for wealthier taxpayers. According to Slate, another analysis of Trump’s tax plan by the conservative Tax Foundation found that middle-class taxpayers would get “very little, while upper-income Americans reap a windfall.”

10:16 p.m.: Trump says the U.S. military just needs to launch “secretive” surprise attacks on ISIS

In fact, the U.S. and its partners in the coalition forces have launched numerous special operations raids and air strikes on ISIS strongholds and leaders — attacks which often rely upon the element of surprise to succeed.

In August, the commander of the U.S. campaign against ISIS in Iraq and Syria, Army Lt. Gen. Sean MacFarland, said in a briefing the U.S had killed over 45,000 ISIS fighters in the past two years.

9:55 p.m.: Trump claims taxes in the U.S. are “just about the highest in the world.”

Not true.

anonymous asked:

How can Ted Cruz run for President if he was born in Canada?

Cruz was born to an American mother, so he had American citizenship at birth. Because he was born in Canada, he also had Canadian citizenship, but renounced his dual-citizenship a few years ago. 

The Constitution requires the President to be a “natural-born citizen”. It doesn’t explain much more than that, but that is taken by most (including me) to mean that someone who has to go through the naturalization process to become an American citizen is barred from the Presidency (along with anyone who isn’t a citizen, of course).

Ted Cruz didn’t have to go through a naturalization process to become an American citizen; he had citizenship from birth because his mother was an American citizen, even though she was living in Canada.

By the way, this is why the Obama “birther” movement was so stupid. Because even if Barack Obama was born in Kenya (and he wasn’t), his mother was an American citizen, so he would have had American citizenship from birth without having to go through a naturalization process.

Psy-ops in the guest box continues at the third and final presidential debate.

Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton are both using guest tickets in a calculated effort to rattle their rivals, or at least send a signal to voters watching on TV.

The in-your-face guest list includes two billionaire critics of Trump, the mother of a Benghazi victim, and President Obama’s Kenya-born half-brother.

Trump invited Malik Obama to sit in his silent cheering section after the president’s relative endorsed the GOP nominee. He’ll be joined by Patricia Smith, the mother of Sean Smith, who died in the 2012 attack in Benghazi, Libya.

Clinton’s guest list includes two successful business leaders who have criticized Trump. Meg Whitman, the CEO of Hewlett Packard, is a Republican who has nevertheless endorsed and raised money for Clinton. Investor and Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban gleefully dissed Trump at a Clinton rally in Pittsburgh this summer.

Third Debate Guests Include Trump Tormentor, Benghazi Mom, Obama Half-Brother

Moderator: For a long time you perpetuated the lie that President Obama wasn’t born in the US.

Trump: Well when other people went to Kenya they couldn’t get his birth certificate, but when I went, I got it!

Moderator: They had the birth certificate in 2011, you kept talking about it all since then…

Trump: Well he should’ve produced his birth certificate!! I did a good thing by keeping it up until it was produced! I did a good job!

Clinton: That’s cause you’re racist.

Trump: WHAT–

Clinton: He was sued twice by the Justice Department for racial discrimination in housing and hiring.

Trump: A lot of people were sued! And we settled with no admission of guilt!

Me, A Person Who Knows About Law: That means nothing at all.

Trump: One time I opened a club that didn’t discriminate against the blacks and Muslims.

Donald Trump’s Theory of the African American Vote:

(To white audiences): Look, your (African American majority) schools suck, your streets are a violent hell, your youths are unemployed and everyone demonizes you. Why not vote for me? What do you have to lose?

(To white audiences, under his breath): don’t worry. I’m going to keep the immigrants and the Muslims out, and lock up all those violent black people in the #BlackLivesMatter movement, and as a bonus, I’ll make sure they can’t rent any houses in property I own … which I’ll give myself giant tax breaks for owning! And of course we’ll have Voter ID and I’ll figure out how to retroactively prove Obama was never president since he was born in Kenya, like I promised to do several years ago.  #winning!

(To the ONE, small African American audience he addressed): You are a people of faith. We need a new civil rights movement and lots of jobs for African Americans. That’s enough, right? You’re gonna vote for me now, right?

Hard to figure out how this guy is getting 0% of the African American vote in some polls, innit?
