"Donald Trump Jr.’s trip to India to sell his family’s luxury condominium projects cost U.S. taxpayers nearly $100,000, according to documents obtained by The Washington Post.

The Department of Homeland Security, responding to a Freedom of Information request, released 47 pages of purchase orders, requisition forms and planning worksheets showing Trump Jr.’s February trip cost more than $97,805 for hotel rooms, airfare, car rental and overtime for Secret Service agents. The costs were incurred on a February tour of four Indian cities — New Delhi, Mumbai, Pune and Kolkata — where the Trump family has licensed its name to luxury high-rise projects.


Trump Jr., 40, is the executive vice president of the family real estate company that the president still owns, although the elder Trump claims he has stepped back from day-to-day control.

During his tour, Trump Jr. walked the red carpet, attended a ribbon-cutting at a high-rise overlooking the Arabian Sea in Mumbai, hosted champagne dinners for buyers and had a private tête-à-tête with India’s prime minister, Narendra Modi. Full-page glossy newspaper ads offered those who put down a $38,000 deposit on a new luxury project outside New Delhi a chance to dine with the president’s son, prompting charges of conflict of interest. His team boasted to reporters that it had sold $100 million worth of the pricey flats, including $15 million in a single day.

The Secret Service is authorized by law to protect the president and his immediate family ……. "

And yada, yada, yada ……. Read it and weep.

To my mind, there is something awfully fishy about recent events surrounding our Commander-in-Chief who's reportedly been in a deep state of morbidity since the elections and his return from France. An anonymous WH source close to the president stated Trump has isolated himself and is 'pissed at' just about EVERYONE.

Is it any surprise that Mitch McConnell has blocked a bill to prevent Trump from firing Mueller stating it's unneeded? ( Smells like an order of protection to me! )

Is it any surprise that Trump replaced Jeff Sessions with an admitted, anti-Mueller investigation cohort who has not undergone the confirmation process? ( DUH )

Is it any surprise that there's a push to confirm Trump's long list of judicial nominees to stack the courts? ( Go Jeff Falke who is calling Trump's bluff! )

Is it any surprise Trump declares elections not in his favor fraudulent?

Is there any surprise that Avenatti is - out-of-the-blue - charged with felony domestic violence? ( I smell a rat! )

What more can it possibly take to convince people that this lawless character is running scared? Personally, I don't need any more convincing.

Via a simple Google search:

Kyrsten Sinema, replacing Jeff Flake of AZ, is the " … first women in the state's 106-yr-old history to take a seat on the floor of the U.S. Senate. "

Go Kyrsten!! [ My niece who resides in Maricopa tells me I will arrive in time to join in the celebration. I expect this to be one of the highlights of my up-and-coming trip! ]

" The 39-year-old congresswoman’s journey from [homeless] sleeping in a vacant service station [and growing up on welfare] to holding a Ph.D., law license and office on Capitol Hill has become a staple of Sinema’s biography. "

It's the rags-to-riches tale. THIS, folks, is a prime example of the American dream! There's still hope.

A response I don't want her to miss!

Aw, Katie … thank you for your wisdom AND your friendship. I can remember a time when I was having financial difficulty and you OFFERED to send me money. I'll NEVER forget that heartfelt generosity! EVER! I was happy to graciously decline that offer, never, ever wishing to take advantage of you.... or anyone else. I could foresee it clear … and all worked out well in the final analysis. I tapped my minimal reserve and eventually repaid myself, conscious of spending! HERE, I want the SFF world to know what you're made of!

My face, indeed, wears the roadmaps of my life … which has been anything but easy. In my latter years, I'm probably more comfortable with myself than I've ever been …. no pretense … no need.

Hats off to YOU, my friend. YOU have heart!

Ozymandias
By Percy Bysshe Shelley

I met a traveller from an antique land,
Who said —“Two vast and trunkless legs of stone
Stand in the desert. . . . Near them, on the sand,
Half sunk a shattered visage lies, whose frown,
And wrinkled lip, and sneer of cold command,
Tell that its sculptor well those passions read
Which yet survive, stamped on these lifeless things,
The hand that mocked them, and the heart that fed;
And on the pedestal, these words appear:
My name is Ozymandias, King of Kings;
Look on my Works, ye Mighty, and despair!
Nothing beside remains. Round the decay
Of that colossal Wreck, boundless and bare
The lone and level sands stretch far away.”

"The Times They Are A-Changin'"

Come gather 'round people
Wherever you roam
And admit that the waters
Around you have grown
And accept it that soon
You'll be drenched to the bone
If your time to you
Is worth savin'
Then you better start swimmin'
Or you'll sink like a stone
For the times they are a-changin'

Come writers and critics
Who prophesize with your pen
And keep your eyes wide
The chance won't come again
And don't speak too soon
For the wheel's still in spin
And there's no tellin' who
That it's namin'
For the loser now
Will be later to win
For the times they are a-changin'

Come senators, congressmen
Please heed the call
Don't stand in the doorway
Don't block up the hall
For he that gets hurt
Will be he who has stalled
There's a battle outside
And it is ragin'
It'll soon shake your windows
And rattle your walls
For the times they are a-changin'

Come mothers and fathers
Throughout the land
And don't criticize
What you can't understand
Your sons and your daughters
Are beyond your command
Your old road is
Rapidly agin'
Please get out of the new one
If you can't lend your hand
For the times they are a-changin'

The line it is drawn
The curse it is cast
The slow one now
Will later be fast
As the present now
Will later be past
The order is
Rapidly fadin'
And the first one now
Will later be last
For the times they are a-changin'

We can still hope that quite a number of the Trumpsters are headed for the dumpsters come Tuesday, Nov 6th.

Then …. follows even greater hope that by 2020 Trump will have his Space Force and the rest of his swamp-feeders will be on the maiden voyage.

Burned to the ground ....

The largest condom factory in the United States burned to the ground. Panic time.

President Trump was awakened at 4 by the telephone.
"Sorry to bother you at this hour, Sir, but this is an emergency!
I've just received word that the Durex factory in Washington has burned
to the ground. It's estimated that the entire USA supply of condoms
will be used up by the end of the week."

Trump: "Oh damn! The economy will never be able to cope with all
those unwanted babies. We'll be ruined. We'll have to ship some in from
Mexico.

Telephone voice says, "Bad idea... The Mexicans will have a field day
with this one. We'll be the laughing stock of the World! What about Canada ?"

Trump: "Okay, I'll give Justin a call and tell him we five
million condoms, ten inches long and three inches thick. That way,
they'll continue to respect us as Americans."

Three days later, a delighted President Trump ran out to open the
first of the 10,000 boxes that had just arrived. He found it full of
condoms, 10 inches long and 3 inches thick, exactly as requested, all
colored with red maple leaves with small writing on each one:


MADE IN CANADA - SIZE: SMALL
