Bury him in the excrement, all of it, so he spends all his time whining like the little whiner he is. Could you believe the press conference today? Marching bands? hahahaha, what a tremendous fool those tushyholes elected.

BTW, as the article Malcolm links to above suggests, Trump gets used, a lot.

He's a front man for real estate development in New York - and its been known for years that this is the case.

NYC high-end residential and commercial real estate is totally out of control, and among the real estate crowd, its well known we have a bubble. Its relatively limited, so when it pops its not going to have the catastrophic global effects that the housing collapse of 2007-08 had.

Its been fueled by Russian and Chinese money, primarily, as the wealthy in those two countries rushed to get their assets out of their home countries and into safe havens - its why London real estate is out of control, too. From what I hear, Russian money has been flowing in European cities in general. A friend from Cologne who's family owns real estate in the city center is constantly being solicited by agents for Russian clients willing to pay more than market. Basically, if you have money in Russia or China, you were rushing to get it out because your wealth simply is not safe there. Aside from hollow economies, the state may come along at any time and just take it from you. A friend in the hedge fund business tells me that in China, the going rate to move wealth out of the country is a 50% premium. That means if you want to move $100 million dollars out of China, you are going to pay $50 million in fees. They then take that money and buy up real estate in places like NYC, sight unseen, at the ask or whatever it gets bid up to. They don't care if they lose money when they go to sell. They just want the cash in real assets. The same phenomena is inflating art prices.

Trump has ridden this wave of money.

There is a development on the West Side of Manhattan in the 60s - it was all branded Trump (When he was elected, the residents voted to remove his name from the buildings). But then something went wrong, and his Chinese investors sued him. I know a guy who worked on that case, and you can go read the court records, but basically, Trump was just licensing his name and had no actual power in the partnership. He was a little fish being told what to do by the Chinese development company.

Its not surprise this is also the case with his Russian partners.

The guy is a total fraud. But, he's a great salesman. Just don't expect him to honor the warranty for any of the things he sells you.

I bet that Trump is already and has always been a lapdog and a puppet of Israel not Russia.

And because this thread created by an advanced and respected teacher and Boddhisatva is about division and hatred here another log on the fire.

Espstein is primarily best friend of paedophile & rapist Clinton and thus a good friend of Clinton's best friend Donald Trump. Tell me why Chelsea and Ivanka have been best friends from childhood?

It is in my opinion stupid blindness to say that Trump is on any way worse than Killary or Obomber. They are obviously the same B*****ds.

Fascism would be back with a left wing name like National Socialism or something similar because Fascism has always been based on the left wing thinking (Mussolini, Hitler).

It's not necessarily about the sex, but rather the implications that can have for blackmail and all kinds of special favors. A leader could go to great lengths to cover up and hide incidents under blackmail, putting his countrymen (or the world) at risk due to terrible decisions and preferential treatment.

Of course one could argue that blackmail wouldn't be an issue if people weren't so sexually repressed and still trying to push Victorian prudish standards, but the U.S. is still a little ways from dropping that ideal (in theory of course, not practice as hypocrites abound).

I prefer "anal discharge" when choosing a PG-13 substitute. It really preserves the intention of the original profanity well.
並畢竟空。並如來藏。並實相。非三 而三三而不三。非合非散而合而散。非非合非非散。不可一異而一異。
All three truths are ultimately empty, all are tathāgatagarbha, all are true aspect. Not three, they are three; three, they are not three. Neither combined nor separated, neither uncombined nor unseparated. Neither same nor different, yet in a sense same, and in a sense different.

夫三諦者。 天然之性徳也。 中諦者。 統一切法。 眞諦者。 泯一切法。 俗諦者。 立一切法。
The three truths. Heaven-sent natural characteristics. The middle truth unifies all dharmas. The ultimate truth demolishes all dharmas. The conventional truth establishes all dharmas.

Are we off topic? No, we're talking about Trump. However you want to cut it, when you're talking about a man who suggests its acceptable to pick up women by grabbing them by the kooch, its hard to define boundaries.

Har har yeah I say naughty bad words sometimes, amazing.

Look guys, we have to make judgement calls on these things sometimes, and if you have a post that is full of profanity, and particularly vitriolic, it stands more of a chance of getting edited than using the occasional swear word for emphasis. We cannot completely NOT police language on here, for reasons that are hopefully obvious - not everyone would self-regulate. However, it would be even worse to be so "consistent" that no one could ever say anything colorful. If you've got an issue take it up with the mod in question, follow the procedures, etc.

If not, get back on subject so the thread doesn't get completely derailed, please.

Things are going to slide, slide in all directions
Won't be nothing
Nothing you can measure anymore
The blizzard, the blizzard of the world
has crossed the threshold
and it has overturned
the order of the soul
