Does he really not know #1 Lies and money laundering

Many may think we are set up for the ignorance defence,

“I didn’t know I was doing anything wrong.
I was only trying to Make America Great Again!”

For months we must now tolerate the rarely random pranks of a fickle person and have a lot of patience, enduring the childlike attitude inconstancy of that person that has gained the position to be the representative of a very large world nation. More than once we could see how he managed to bring the world at the brink of one crisis after an other, even sometimes to the edge of a war. Him loving to be in the centre of it all and loving calling others “pranks” and calling all the sayings of others “Fake” and “Lies”. But does he ever knows the truth and is willing to see the truth?

One of my friends (who died last month) was totally against Obama and praised Trump as going to be the best president for America. In case he would be or has to be the best president for that State one can wonder how the situation of that State must be and why there would be nobody else to bring better times for many of the citizens of that huge State. That friend of mine, who lived in New York City, was very afraid of anything that smelled as socialism which he very fast went to believe would be communism. My favourite Sanders was considered the devil in disguise and Clinton of the same tribe as Barack Obama taking away the independence of the people. As a conservative Catholic he was not yet so conservative as many of the Tea-party and those who want to bring America back into the European Middle Ages with all its restrictions of religious and educational freedom. For many Trump was and is the right one to play for God and even to decide ‘when’ and ‘which city’ has to become the capital of Israel. De even declared that what he does is according to the Bible and because the Bible says so he may do it.

Strange that those who are so afraid of communism and Russians did not see and still refuse to see the link with their favoured candidate and his many Russian connections.

For Europeans it may be strange that not more people from the Republican party could be standing up against that bully who seems not to be one of the stablest man, who at the moment is still on free feet though accused of so many molestations of women. For us it looks incredible that not many more Americans come to see how they are led around the garden and have been told many lies and falsehoods. One can wonder how it comes that no more Americans not see that Donald Trump more than once concealed the truth and minimised what others were saying that he would have done to them. for him it was clear women wanted to be used by him, so it was normal he took advantage of them. Also about a lot of other things, concerning the safety of the country he told many lies.

He’s lied about the Russia scandal. He’s lied about his ties to organized crime. Perhaps he’s lied so much that freshly excavated prevarications don’t register greatly. Yet recent news reports revealing that Trump was pursuing a huge development deal in Moscow in late 2015 and early 2016 show that during the campaign Trump committed a tremendous act of deception.{How Donald Trump Lied to Conceal His Moscow Business Partner}

We can even wonder how it can be when Trump‘s businesses went bankrupt so many times in the 1990s that many legitimate banks wouldn’t lend to him any-more, but that most of the Americans were willing to give him all credit?

Perhaps many who were the victim of the Bank-crisis in 2008 thought so see in him the man that could bring much more money into the country. They probably knew and where convinced that as an experienced money launderer he would be the best man to bring in enough money to the United States of America.  I wonder if they never thought about the treason to the U.S.A. he committed to to turn to Russian oligarchsPutin’s ruling clique — to bankroll his projects, and launder their dirty money for them, and to make sure certain people would not be favoured by the American public to become their next president. All means seemed good to eliminate figures like Clinton and Sanders.

Were many Americans so short of memory they forgot how Trump in 2014 already said:

“We don’t rely on American banks.
We have all the funding we need out of Russia.”

Donald Trump JR, 2014

Did the majority of Americans not know,or thought it not relevant, that Trump’s main financial backer for the Trump Tower Toronto was a Russian-Canadian billionaire who got the money by selling a massive steel mill in Ukraine for nearly a billion dollars. $100 million of that money was paid to a Kremlin-backed fixer, likely as a bribe to very high Russian officials. Having as the Chairman of the Bank who financed the deal, Vladimir Putin.

When we do know that Trump bought his home in Palm Beach, Florida for $40 million and a few years later, with no real increase in the value — he sold it for almost $100 million — the most expensive home in America at the time! Should that not have us to wonder why a major Russian oligarch bought it? — We don’t know yet why he effectively ‘gave’ Trump $60 million, a lovely extra for nothing. But it’s classic money laundering practice. Normally the process by which criminals attempt to conceal the illicit origin and ownership of the proceeds of their unlawful activities would be considered illegal and punishable. In many cases were Trump is involved the governement turned its eye and allowed his activities to be successful, giving legitimacy to the proceeds, over which the criminals and Trump maintained control.

In 2008 that businessman, who many feared more than loved, said already

“Russians make up a pretty disproportionate cross-section of a lot of our assets”
Donald Trump JR, 2008

Trump’s real estate deals were often fuelled by Russian money, typically passed through shady shell companies. 77% of Trump Soho apartments were bought with cash by such mysterious companies. At least 13 people with links to Russian oligarchs or mobsters lived in Trump properties, including one of Russia’s top mobsters. One even ran a high-stakes illegal gambling ring in the apartment right below Trump’s!

All the time here in Europe we have to hear there is no relationship between Trump and Russians. Though Trump’s financial broker and “Senior Advisor” was a Russian convicted felon named Felix Sater, widely known as a mafia figure who once stabbed someone in the face with a broken margarita glass, requiring over 100 stitches. Sater helped set up shell companies, and arranged funding for Trump’s projects, including plans for Trump Tower Moscow. He’s also part of Putin’s inner circle. Here’s one email he wrote to Trump’s lawyer Michael Cohen in November, 2015:

“Michael I arranged for Ivanka to sit in Putins private chair at his desk and office in the Kremlin. I will get Putin on this program and we will get Donald elected. We both know no one else knows how to pull this off without stupidity or greed getting in the way. I know how to play it and we will get this done. Buddy our boy can become President of the USA and we can engineer it. I will get all of Putins team to buy in on this, I will.”
