Trump Bailed Out by Deutsche Bank? From Ric Mauricio (John Eipper, USA, 07/21/17 5:21 am)

Ric Mauricio writes:

I really like Timothy Brown's quote of July 18th: "I find that trying to count how many angels can dance on the head of a pin a foolish waste of time, because the pin and the angels are both invisible to the human eye and mind--hidden, even from the speakers, behind smokescreens of discourse."

That is a keeper.

I think I can see the head of the pin, but, of course, not the angels. In fact, has anyone seen an angel lately? Yes, there are people who approach angelic status, but are they angels? One time, in a discussion, I mentioned that in my afterlife, that I wanted angel wings. Of course, me being me, there is an impossibility of earning that status, but I figured if the Almighty can do anything, s/he could bestow upon me angel wings and I can come back to earth and help people. Would be pretty cool. I mean, c'mon, I would be really bored just lounging around heaven (provided I end up there) and doing nothing.

But enough about angels. Let's talk about the latest news in relation to capitalism. Trump's business dealings. Seems that the only bank who was willing to lend Mr. Trump the money to save his holdings was none other than the Deutsche Bank. Now the news is that because Deutsche Bank was complicit in laundering Russian funds (they paid huge penalties), that perhaps there is a Russian connection with Trump.

Aha, I had asked in a previous post what country the largest shareholder of Deutsche Bank. JE guessed Qatar, which was close. It is Saudi Arabia through an entity in the Cayman Islands. So you see, there is misdirection and they are looking for the wrong connection. Perhaps there is a possible Saudi connection with the President, which is why they gave him that medal. Which is why, even though most of the 9/11 terrorists were from Saudi Arabia (and funded through a Saudi ... bin Laden), there is no travel ban from that country.

JE comments:  There's a stench wafting from Trump's Deutsche Bank connection, but (as always) it stops short of a smoking gun.  Trump's "I am a businessman" smokescreen gives him an immunity in the US imaginary.  Remember what the business of America is?  Business.  (Calvin Coolidge)
