    Quite a level indeed. So much transparency that no one is allowed to know anything.

    We are supposed to take on trust that the president is such an honest Joe it’s impossible to buy access to the White House. He’s gotten away with this confidence trick his whole career.

    If confronted, he becomes offended and deeply sad, as if any questioning of his integrity compounds the burden of tragedy in his family life. Anyone with half a heart has to slink away and hope for the best.

    So how will Hunter’s pal, Soho gallery owner George Berges, be able to discern whether a buyer is suspect? How can he tell if the Chinese oligarch phoning in a $500,000 bid for a canvas onto which Hunter has blown blobs of paint through a straw is an emissary of President Xi Jinping? How will he know if the Ukrainian on the line owns a corrupt energy company that paid Hunter $83,333 a month? Or if the Russian blonde bidding up the back is the widow of the corrupt former mayor of Moscow with a penchant for wiring millions of dollars to bank accounts associated with Hunter and his partners? The same goes for the Romanians, the Kazakhstanis, the Latvians, the Omanis, the credit-card companies incorporated in Delaware, the asbestos-litigation specialists, et cetera ad nauseam.

    Do people spending lots of money on art have to publicize who they are? There are lots of very famous pieces of art bought by undisclosed phone in buyers. They even use agents to bid.

    People who have a history of selling their daddy's name for influence should make their buyer's public. Well they should if they aren't getting a payoff. I wonder if Hunter accepts Yen and Rubles.

    Right, the art scam is not scalable like the foundation scam, but the cost are about zero unlike the foundation.

    Dotard is a lying, corrupt, criminal from Queens, always has been.


    April 6 2021

    Goldmacher reported that the campaign and its online fundraising platform WinRed hustled its most loyal supporters out of tens of millions of dollars with deceptive donation links on their emails and websites. It's unknown to this day how many people unknowingly signed up for weekly recurring donations and "money bombs" (agreements to donate a lump sum on a future date), but there were so many requests for refunds that at one point, 1-3% of all credit card complaints in the U.S. were about WinRed charges.

    The credit card companies told the Times that they were inundated with complaints and requests to cancel cards:

    "It started to go absolutely wild," said one fraud investigator with Wells Fargo. "It just became a pattern," said another at Capital One. A consumer representative for USAA, which primarily serves military families, recalled an older veteran who discovered repeated WinRed charges from donating to Mr. Trump only after calling to have his balance read to him by phone.
    "In fact, many people were so enthusiastic that they gave over and over, and in certain cases where they would give too much, we would promptly refund their contributions. Our overall dispute rate was less than 1% of total online donations, a very low number."

    Perhaps the former president is confused. The problem is not that "enthusiastic" Trump supporters voluntarily "gave over and over." Rather, the problem is that his donors involuntarily "gave over and over" because his campaign was running a scam, relying on pre-checked boxes and opaque disclaimers that were designed to be overlooked by unsuspecting contributors.

    Former Obama Ethics Chief: Hunter Biden Art-Selling Arrangement ‘Perfect Mechanism for Funneling Bribes’




    During an appearance on CNN on Friday, former Obama-era Office of Government Ethics chief Walter Shaub called the White House’s arrangement allowing Hunter Biden to sell his art “the perfect mechanism for funneling bribes” to the president.

    Shaub’s statement comes amid the development that the White House crafted a deal under which the price tags of Hunter Biden’s artwork sales, some listing as high as $500,000, will be obscured from the artist to prevent ethical violations.

    Per the contract, New York gallery owner Georges Bergès will set the prices for the art and also will conceal related records such as prospective bidders and buyers. Bergès has promised to refuse extraordinary offers far exceeding the asking price or those that he deems suspect, sources first told the Washington Post.

    The president’s son’s art sale, expected to be held this fall, has been subject to criticism amid concerns that the market he’s dabbling in has a reputation for corruption and shady business activity.



    https://www.yahoo.com/news/former-ob...022634511.html
    bs and as if tRump and his repuke cartel's act of funneling foreign competition to wage war on Democracy, funneling bribes to add $7 trillion to the debt and funneling COVID-19 bribes for profit to kill off over 600,000 Americans which also has global implications at the entire tRump gutter global inspired curse on humanity being a imminent threat against the entirety of global civilization. As such, what is more important as in to ensure civilization survives or for tRump and his gutter goon affiliates to celebrate but eventually rot in their sewer of rotted filth?

    Nothing like Dotard.

    President Xi of China, and I, are working together to give massive Chinese phone company, ZTE, a way to get back into business, fast. Too many jobs in China lost. Commerce Department has been instructed to get it done!

    — Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump)

    May 13, 2018

    Too many jobs in China lost?

    Trump did not mention in that tweet or its follow-ups that on Thursday, the developer of a theme park resort outside of Jakarta had signed a deal to receive as much as $500 million in Chinese government loans, as well as another $500 million from Chinese banks, according to Agence France-Presse.
    Trump’s family business, the Trump Organization, has a deal to license the Trump name to the resort, which includes a golf course and hotels.

    The orange, grifter drops sanctions, get a $1 billion loan from communist China.

    PLEASE SHOW WHERE AMERICAN CONSUMERS PAID 25% HIGHER PRICES (the cost of the tariffs) FOR CHINESE GOODS. WE DID NOT...CHINA HAD TO EAT IT, BECAUSE AMERICANS WOULD NOT HAVE BOUGHT THEIR SHIT AT 25% HIGHER PRICES, AND THEY KNEW IT.

    TRUMP KNOWS MORE ABOUT INTERNATIONAL COMMERCE THAN EVERY DEMOCRAT WHO EVER LIVED , PUT TOGETHER, AND HE PROVED IT.
    The bankruptcy king knows more than anyone, believe me.

    WOW, Dotard likes his cult stupid, he really loves you.

    China doesn't pay for tariffs imposed on them, dumb fuck.

    January 7 2020
    A year and a half after President Donald Trump's trade war with China began, the economic data is becoming irrefutable: American consumers and businesses have paid for the full cost of the tariffs, and then some.

    That directly contradicts the message that Trump and his allies have been sending since the trade war began. Peter Navarro, Trump's top economic adviser, for example, has stubbornly maintained the fantasy that "China is bearing the entire burden of the tariffs," even when confronted with data suggesting exactly the opposite.

    After an initial surge of optimism, the American steel industry seems to have not benefited much from the Trump administration's protectionism. Major steel producers like U.S. Steel and Nucor have slowed production amid slackening demand, laid off some workers, and seen their stock prices tank during the past two years.

    Tariffs on Chinese-made parts have increased the prices that businesses like AudioControl pay to purchase necessary components. Those higher costs are built into the final product, putting those American firms at a disadvantage when they sell goods overseas.

    Let alone the $48 billion in taxpayer $$$ to bailout farmers for his incompetent tariffs.

    Bet teabaggers (www.teapart.org) think Mexico paid for Dotard's vanity wall too.
