The biggest spender was a key Middle East ally, Saudi Arabia. A public relations firm spent $270,000 on behalf of the Saudi government at the Trump International Hotel in D.C. on an undisclosed date, the report said, citing public documents and a USA Today article.

After sexual misconduct allegations came out against Kevin Spacey in October 2017, the actor was let go from his Netflix series, “House of Cards.” Now, on top of those accusations, Spacey is being called out for racist comments he supposedly made on the Season 1 set of the series.

Earl Blue, the head of VIP Protective Services, which handled security for the first season of “House of Cards,” told Daily Mail that Spacey was unkind to the black security members, often refusing to acknowledge them. Blue claims the 58-year-old actor used racial slurs on set and was the reason why the team was not hired back for the following season.

Drumpf provides the shock which distracts the media and allows the critters hiding under the rocks to do their nasty evil business. From Bannon, to John Kelly to Stephen Miller, they operate behind Drumpf and manipulate him masterfully.

some White House officials, including conservative adviser Stephen Miller, feared that Graham and Durbin would try to trick Trump into signing a bill that was damaging to him and would hurt him with his political base. As word trickled out Thursday morning on Capitol Hill that Durbin and Graham were heading over to the White House, legislative affairs director Marc Short began to make calls to lawmakers and shared many of Miller’s concerns.
:
In the late morning, before Durbin and Graham arrived, Kelly — who had already been briefed on the deal — talked to Trump to tell him that the proposal would probably not be good for his agenda, White House officials said. Kelly, a former secretary of homeland security, has taken an increasingly aggressive and influential role in the immigration negotiations, calling lawmakers and meeting with White House aides daily — more than he has on other topics. He has “very strong feelings,” in the words of one official. But he’s not a lone voice. Trump in recent weeks has also been talking more to conservatives such as Rep. Mark Meadows (R-N.C.) on immigration, these people said.

White House officials say Kelly is determined to secure a deal on dreamers and border security and has told Trump that the southwestern border is worse than it was a few years ago — and that he can be the president to change the status quo.

More than any other factor, it is the wealth derived stolen from Africa, especially the prison labor of people taken in chains from that continent, that accounts for the aggrandized wealth of the West and its centuries of dominance in world affairs. (my paraphrase of author's lead paragraph...)

Finally, someone looking at the big picture. The roots of European culture were the barbaric (ie, pirates, vandals, vikings) Germanic/Teutonic tribes of North-Central Europe (present day Germany, Denmark, Sweden, Norway) which overwhelmed the Celtic tribes of Europe from the fifth century onwards (and the slavic tribes of far Eastern and Russian Europe). They raided, they plundered, they took what they wanted and left devastation in their wake. And this rapaciousness was passed down generation to generation. The Normans ( ie, Norsemen, raiding vikings who ended up colonizing "Normandy" ) eventually took over England in the 11th century (Norman invasion) and founded the English ruling upper class and ruling aristocracy, who generations later, enslaved, colonized, and plundered wealth, people, and resources throughout the world.

“Europeans invented the world anew by embarking upon plantation agriculture on a massive scale. Once Europeans became involved in production, they fastened their economic fortunes to slavery. These three moves — imperial expansion, expropriation, and slavery — became central to the forging of a new global economic order and eventually the emergence of [incorporated aggrandized wealth &] capitalism.”
:
The facts of this history hide in plain sight, and yet Americans and others in the West have averted their eyes for 500 years. The West’s ascension over other parts of the world has been attributed, instead, to innate Western qualities, including rationality and a talent for invention and innovation, or Western institutions. It is this distortion of reality — a delusion, really — that fuels attitudes of white superiority, whether subtle and pervasive, or as crude as those exhibited by someone like Trump.
:
the West would display a ruthless will to plunder these regions, robbing them of their human and natural resources.
:
African slavery became the indispensable killer app used by the Europeans to claim their “shares of the world.” The first rocket fuel of Western ascendancy was the silver mines of Peru, worked by slaves. A single mountain there produced 60 percent of the world’s supply of that metal in the second half of the 16th century, monetizing Europe and swelling its bourgeoisie, financing a trade in luxury goods from Asia and funding militarization.

The next phase would be built from sugar, grown on plantations by slaves in Brazil, and especially the Caribbean, during a long and lucrative 18th-century boom. Because of its slave-grown sugar, tiny Guadeloupe was so valuable that France swapped Canada, which Voltaire derided as “a few acres of snow,” for the island in an exchange with Britain. The early prosperity of New England was largely based on its role as provisioner for black slave plantation islands such as Jamaica and Barbados.

In his book, “Capitalism and Slavery,” Eric Williams, the historian and late Trinidad and Tobago prime minister, quoted Malachy Postlethwayt, a leading 18th-century British expert on trade, who called African labor “the fundamental prop and support” of imperial British prosperity. The slavery-sugar nexus indeed built the British shipping, banking and insurance industries of that era, and its huge surpluses would soon underpin Britain’s industrialization.
:
The 18th century also saw the rise of Saint-Domingue, now known as Hispaniola, which houses both Haiti and the Dominican Republic. Two hundred years ago, slave labor turned that French-controlled island into what many consider to have been the most profitable colony in history. At its height, France imported 40,000 West African slaves a year to Hispaniola, literally working them to death to produce sugar so cheaply that it put other lucrative British islands out of the sugar business.
:
In the decades after the U.S. Civil War, Western nations would go on colonize nearly the entire globe, exploiting workers, often through forced labor, to extract the metals used to build bridges and skyscrapers and the uranium to fuel our atomic weapons. By pressing its advantages, the West not only secured its own affluence, but it also set up much of the world for persistent dysfunction and economic underdevelopment.

The author goes on to say his article is not intended to be a moral indictment of Europe and Europeans. Why not? There is no way to read and understand history and see the huge and fraudulently acquired aggrandized stores of wealth and assets controlled by the white Europeans and their Yankee American descendants as anything other than a moral crime being perpetuated to this day. This moral crime continues to account for an on-going rape of African resources, wars, and constant political meddling to secure a continued flow of wealth being funneled into the G16 (including China, Japan, South Korea, Taiwan now into the mixture of aggressors).

This comes hardly a week after minister Mpina ordered an intensive audit of revenue collected in the international fish markets located in the Lake Zone following reports of tax avoidance that deny the government billions of Tanzanian shillings in levies and taxes.

During his tour in Lake Victoria's small islands of Galinzila and Kakukuru in Ukerewe District, Mwanza Region, the minister said that the government's war against illegal fishing had no intention of hurting law-abiding businesspeople, but targeted those who break the law and squander natural resources for their own interest.

On Saturday, Kajiado Governor Joseph ole Lenku accused the Kenya Wildlife Service (KWS) of fuelling the conflict by continuously harassing herdsmen. .. the governor claimed that KWS has refused to share the five per cent revenue from wildlife with the Maasai community.
:
The governor also said that the human-wildlife conflict has claimed 37 lives of residents living around the park in the recent past, saying this can no longer be tolerated. He said the failure by KWS to compensate the community for their livestock killed and crops destroyed has led to the killing of seven elephants on Friday evening and called on the government through KWS to intervene.
