What are the odds that same time next year we’ll still be discussing a new Kushner - Deutsche Bank revelation, and he’ll still be making that trip to Davos?

Bill underwritten by private prison industry? Largest private prison company, GEO Grp, donated $250K to Trump…received $774 million in gov contracts, including for an immigrant detention center (Trump was repeatedly bailed out by rich financiers when he couldn’t make payments)

So much for Trump’s Syria “ceasefire” - aside from U.S., Russia, Israel and Turkey have all bombed Syria last few months. Russian strikes killed 30 in a residential area two weeks ago.

The Republican-led 2013 government shut down cost the economy $24 billion - how much will this one cost? How many taxpayer millions are they blowing going through this exercise?

Glorified networking/personal deal making-on-taxpayer-dime opportunity for some. Eric Cantor, former House majority leader, became a regular at Davos before landing a cushy gig at boutique investment bank Moelis & Co.

Clarke (who Trump was reportedly considering for a DHS post) was in Moscow same week Flynn and Stein were dining with Putin on RT’s dime.

How many Sunday News shows will lead with this story re FBI probing Russian banker funneling money to the NRA in an effort to help Trump win? Betting 0.

Facebook is moving to suppress real news, pages, and video (so people don’t get depressed and stop clicking on ads) - this is particularly bad for activists and independent/citizen journalists - here’s how to ensure you don’t miss seeing content you value/trust in the newsfeed

Reason I keep bringing this up - MSM keeps moving past this, so these violations have not only been thoroughly normalized, it’s encouraging other shady actors to believe the White House can be bought, a serious national security risk … you’d think would get more media attention

2. Background thread on Trump’s India projects, which no doubt got a boost of investor/buyer confidence from Ivanka’s taxpayer funded trip there recently.

By the first year anniversary of his inauguration, Trump will have spent $75 million taxpayer dollars vacationing at/boosting his properties - that’s 187 years in POTUS salaries - and that’s not including taxpayer funded trips by his kids to India to boost Trump-branded projects.

Between Mar-a-Lago vacation this weekend, and Davos next week, Trump and his extensive Davos entourage (which includes Jared Kushner) will have blown through 40 years of POTUS salaries. In one week.

Meanwhile as frozen paychecks loom for government workers, mega donors will shell out $100,000 to attend a Trump party at Mar-a-Lago, whose multi-million dollar security tab will be funded by taxpayers just so billionaires could huddle behind closed doors and celebrate their work

Fair point. Only checks they care about are the big ones written by mega donors like Kochs and Adelsons.

3. Government shutdowns and nixing Obama’s spending bills (like on infrastructure) to boost economic growth…key Republican tactics to shave off GDP points deliberately so they could blame sluggish economic growth on Democrats before the 2016 elections

2. The last time Republicans shut down the government in 2013 (to hurt the economy after Obama won a second term) it cost *$24 billion* in lost economic output, or 0.6% of projected annualized GDP growth, according to Standard and Poor’s ratings agency.

How about a law that if Congress can’t avoid a shutdown, their paychecks get suspended immediately for two years to make up for the economic impact and they’re on the hook for paying back last year’s salary as well?

“Consider Mark Norris, whom Trump nominated for a lifetime position on a district court in Tennessee. Norris is an anti-choice Republican state senator who co-sponsored a proposal to ban abortion even when a woman’s life is at risk”

2. Trump thanking Carl Higbie in November 2015. He knew exactly what he was hiring.
