It's weird how distressed Trump is about the $35 million cost of the investigations into his administration's corruption. His father lent him $60 million -- $140 million in today’s dollars -- but he called it "a very small loan."

If this Adani mine gets done I hope they spin it out onto an ASX listing they can sell to idiots so I can short it. All my US coal shorts keep dying which is good but also requires me to find new shitcos to go after.

I'm listening to Republicans twist the Iran intel to make it sound like Iran is taking unprovoked, offensive measures against the U.S. and our allies. Like it just came out of nowhere. I've read the intel too. And let me be clear - that's not what the intel says.
