Donald Trump’s Worst Deal

Baku Tower - Ivanka

The President helped build a hotel in Azerbaijan that appears to be a corrupt operation engineered by oligarchs tied to Iran’s Revolutionary Guard.

Heydar Aliyev Prospekti, a broad avenue in Baku, the capital of Azerbaijan, connects the airport to the city. The road is meant to highlight Baku’s recent modernization, and it is lined with sleek new buildings. The Heydar Aliyev Center, an undulating wave of concrete and glass, was designed by Zaha Hadid.

The state oil company is housed in a twisting glass tower, and the headquarters of the state water company looks like a giant water droplet. “It’s like Potemkin,” my translator told me. “It’s only the buildings right next to the road.” Behind the gleaming structures stand decaying Soviet-era apartment blocks, with clothes hanging out of windows and wallboards exposed by fallen brickwork.

Ben Carson: ‘Slave Ships’ Held ‘Immigrants’

Ben CarsonWhile speaking with his employees on Monday, Ben Carson made a baffling claim that seemingly likened slaves to immigrants.

Calling the United States a “land of dreams and opportunity,” the newly confirmed housing and urban development secretary said, “There were other immigrants who came here in the bottom of slave ships, worked even longer, even harder for less.”

TVNL Comment:  This moron does not know the difference between those who 'came here' and those who were chained and dragged here against there will and sold at slave markets.  There was no United States when slavery began, but slavery was legal here until the end of the Civil War. No one in the hold of a slave ship ever dreamed of the glorious life his or her children would have in the hands of their new masters.

U.S. Warned of Foreign Intel Operations After Russian Met With Team Trump at RNC

US warned of foreign Intel OperationsThe day Russian ambassador Sergey Kislyak mingled with Trump campaign advisers—including then-Sen. Jeff Sessions—at a conference near the Republican National Convention, the Department of Homeland Security began preparing a nationwide warning about foreign intelligence officials attempting to elicit information from U.S. government personnel at conferences, events, and other functions.

The document, eventually released on July 27, 2016, and reviewed by The Daily Beast, doesn’t specifically mention which foreign intelligence service might be making such contacts. But a senior administration official says that growing concern within U.S. government circles about Russian interference in the election generally—and Kislyak’s presence at the RNC in particular—was “not unrelated” to the production of the DHS intelligence bulletin.
