Oh sorry, thought that said "curry flavour".

String him up.

This is so sad, I don't even have a meme for it.  He'll get his hands slapped and that'll be it.

Which makes you wonder why he didn't bother, now, doesn't it?

Republicans really seem to have a problem with rules, regulations, norms and laws, generally.

Doesn't make me wonder. I know for a fact every single person who identifies as Republican is also worthless subhuman garbage. A lying republican is just a Republican.

Palined Parenthood: i always knew trump was a socialist


He was negotiating with Cuba while the embargo was still ongoing to try and negotiate a Trump building in Havanna.

https://theconversation.com/before-trump-was-anti-cuba-he-wanted-to-open-a-hotel-in-havana-94689

Reportedly acting with Trump's knowledge, representatives from Seven Arrows Investment and Development Corp. traveled to Cuba, which was then led by Fidel Castro.

There, they met with government officials and business leaders. The goal, a former official with Trump Hotels and Casino Resorts told Newsweek, was to get a jump on the competition if President Bill Clinton opened up Cuba to U.S. business. Ever since President John F. Kennedy imposed an economic embargo on Cuba in 1962, the Cuban market has been closed to most American companies, including the hospitality sector.

Because their business trip violated the embargo, Seven Arrows advised the Trump organization to disguise its payment to them as a charitable project, according to documents obtained by Newsweek.

The liberal media must be covering for all the Democratic unregistered foreign agents.

"So where did these fraudulent voting machines come from?"

If history has taught us anything: It's OK if you are a Republican.

May I suggest RTFA. There's some other bad stuff in there.

Rivera has been embroiled in several election-related controversies since then, including orchestrating the stealth funding of an unknown Democratic candidate to take on his main rival in a South Florida congressional race

Manafort spent a little under two years in prison, kept several of his houses/apartments, and got back a lot of his money that was frozen. Such consequences for catching a spy red handed. Let us know when this guy gets it worse.

But what if you're breaking the law?  Maybe he needs to get some advice from Sen. Scott.

But Hunter Biden got a cushy job, and Twitter took down his dick pics, so I bet I know what the news media is gonna harp on more.

Republican operatives working for Socialists? Florida is a cesspool of grift and corruption. Every accusation of that on Florida Dems is a confession.

Hopefully this widens into something bigger.  If it comes out that Trump and many Republicans were taking money from Venezuela in order to place nice with them, that is gonna cost the Republicans all of the gains they have made in Florida's Latino community.
 
2022-12-06 8:25:44 AM  
Isn't Venezuela an evil socialist country and therefore the enemy of all that is good and decent?
 
2022-12-06 9:10:47 AM  
Is it a coincidence that a large majority of the politicians who run afoul of the law are republicans?

How can he be a spy? He was best friends and roommates with Marco Rubio.

Not really, since Republicans don't believe pesky "laws" should apply to them, they are only on the books to hamper democrats.

Laws don't protect AND bind if you're the GOP. It's either one or the other, depending on the situation.
