I'm not familiar with "Wir Haben Geholfen"; is this Pogo Cartoon a rough translation:

Two ranking democrats on the intelligence committee told CNN today that they now expected the investigations into the Russia connections to lead to jail terms for multiple Trump administration associates. They were very specific about this, and repeated it several times when pressed, though they would not go into any details. This is no minor matter.

In the interests of  balance, I have to report that Trump has donated his paycheck to the National Park Service!

 

 

 

 

In the interests of balance, it should be pointed out that his salary is chump-change compared with the money he's now authorised to help himself to from his "not so blind" trust that he can use his position of POTUS to enrich himself.:

 

 

 

 

So, out of curiosity, when he goes to his Marilago private golf resort, I presume that his "entourage" (staff, family,body guards, etc) all pay to stay there and the government picks up the tab for all of them and any of the dignitaries that stay there too. Probably have to pay a fortune to ensure all the rooms around the president are empty etc etc etc too. I wonder how the "occupancy rate" compares to 12 months ago because of this. Wonder if any normal guests who dine there have to pay extra for dining with the president....

Just reporting what I saw. I suppose if you saw someone running from a dairy with armloads of cash and cigarettes, you might say something like 'I bet that lady ends up in jail'.

Is this the item that you are referring to? : There's a lot of smoke around Donald Trump's associates and Russia

 

It concludes:

"...  That's A LOT of smoke. Now, just because there's tons of smoke doesn't mean there's a fire somewhere in there.
But, what it does do is suggest that Trump's dismissal of questions about his campaign's ties to Russia are much more than "fake news."
And, if Trump truly believes that there is no fire, his best move would be to put his full weight behind a bipartisan investigation aimed at getting out all of the facts.
He has yet to do so."

This is the story I am referring to. I actually saw a different item that also included an interview with a second democratic congressman on the intelligence committee, who confirmed what this one said.

He has a private wing. 

 

Always has.

 

He bought the place 30 years ago. By offering the family $15m, and when they turned him down, he tried to buy the land between Mar-a-Lago and the beach, and then told them he was going to build out their view.

 

They sold him the place for a third of the price he offered first. He's an ar$3hole.

 

 

 

I wonder how his support of a Syrian dictator is going today :(

This was a classic Trump lie - he did not own the land in question, and therefore could not build on it.

 

He perfected the "alternative truth" technique a long time ago.  wink

Steve Bannon removed from National Security Council.

 

Reasons suggested by the WH for this don't make sense ie "he was only there to keep an eye on Flynn" (WTF???).

 

More likely his atrocious religious-war-mongering apocalyptic views, comparing himself to Satan and Darth Vadar were upsetting too many of the "establishment" and/or some of his history at Breitbart etc is going to catch up with him.

 

I try not to judge people on how they look, but...
