Trump just pardoned Conrad Black for his felony convictions after learning Black penned a book fawning over him. Black also put money into Trump hotels. A case of one ass wiping another.

I spoke to Lord Black years back when my Guardian colleague Martin Bright was arrested for violating the UK Official Secrets Act. Black was the only publisher in Britain who refused to sign a statement of protest which I’d drafted with Christopher Hitchens

Trump's embargo is far worse than the one imposed on Saddam, who was still allowed to sell 2 million barrels of oil a day—and was allowed some access to the nation’s foreign bank accounts. This embargo is brutal: No food, medicine, spare parts to fix infrastructure.

Every vote should count. Not all votes are counted.🙄  Greg Palast June 20, 2004: "1 million black votes didn't count in the 2000 presidential election / It's not too hard to get your vote lost -- if some politicians want it to be lost"

Is Maduro a great guy? Is he a wonderful democrat? Nope. Is he competent? Not very. Chavez would've cut a deal—he did many, quietly, while alive. I know Maduro, he's inflexible. But Venezuelans don’t want Donald Trump nor BP nor Exxon choosing their president.

The embargo is brutal — no food and medicine, no spare parts allowed to fix essential infrastructure such as the subway, electric, and water systems. As the UN rapporteur said, this is a medieval siege.

Donald Trump isn't a billionaire, he just played one on TV. And he has a long history of lying about his net worth, inflating it to boost his ego — and to fraudulently obtain finance — and deflating it to minimize his tax.
