  1. This comment post will probably be deleted since this is a biased liberal media. But I’ll type it in anyway and just see. I am a black conservative and I am voting for Donald Trump. I happen to know that a whole lot of Hispanics are voting for Donald Trump also. I am in these FB groups and I see their comments how they long for America to be prosperous once again and how they came to America for the American dream of owning a nice home with a white picket fence.
    I also have these dreams.
    But lets get on to the subject at hand…
    Isn’t this the same HIllary Clinton that worked for Nixon and the very same WATERGATE old chilly Hilly was fired at. What else was she involved with Nixon that we don’t know about?
    You can also google ‘Clinton scandals and body bags’. Google Bill Clinton’s pedophile Island which Hillary also covered up. Bill Clinton used cheap woman to build a very wealthy empire. It was rumored that he bought some of these child sex slaves from the arabs also known as Islam for his pleasure and his wealthy friends to use in their private parties. And this Islamic woman Hillary is using as her sidekick must know something to have the cushy job she has. Or some of her Islamic friends are holding information ransom for her to keep this cushy job.
    I also notice a lot of commentators on some of these news comments say their words the same way with mispelling of the same words. Some libtard squats appear to have 3 to 4 ID,s on here. Replying to yourself liking your own comments in other ID form etc.
    Why do you do it? To make it look like this stupid liberal news media has more support than they have? Brainwashers are using their brainwashed dimtards to brainwash others.
    Thats about as bad as Obama paying the same actors who rioted in 2 different cities. And you can even google the Sandy Hook school shooting hoaxes where some of these actors appeared in other school shootings in other cities. Who are the fake actors who pretended to be parents? Where are the bodies buried? Why were certain honest reporters kept away from close-up photos and comments? There are Sandy Hook FB groups you can go to where a lot of questions are presented that make sense. There is no limit the libtard democrat Islamic terrorists sympathizers would not go to steal America’s guns.
    Think people think. Dont let the libtard tell you how to think. Dont be afraid of being called a conspiracy theorist or a tin foil hat wearer. You have liberal democrat voters that are getting doped up on marijuana coke and pills so that they cannot do anything but vote democrat. They are unable to search for the truth. The Liberal Democrats are a criminal organization and are striving to cheat America out of it’s freedoms to thrive and survive the way God wants them to.

Sulabh International on Sunday launched the “world’s biggest” toilet pot model in Haryana’s Marora village — popularly known as ‘Trump village’ — on the occasion of World Toilet Day.

As per a release by the non-profit, the mega Indian-style pot, made of iron, fibre, wood and plaster of Paris, measuring 20×10 feet, was unveiled to create awareness about the use of toilets in the village dedicated to US President Donald Trump.

Sanitation expert and founder of Sulabh International, Bindeshwar Pathak, also dedicated 95 new household toilets to the residents of the village.

“This large pot replica will be shifted to Delhi’s Sulabh Toilet Museum,” the release quoted Pathak as saying.

He said the idea behind naming a village after Trump was to highlight the issue of sanitation and cleanliness globally.

Puneet Ahluwalia, a member of the ruling Republican Party in the US, said that such an initiative would go a long way to motivate masses towards cleanliness and safe sanitation. (IANS)

Exposed! Paradise Papers reveal Tax-haven Secrets of the Super-rich! Even Queen Elizabeth II hasn’t been spared!

Paradise Papers expose tax haven secrets of ultra-wealthy, including Queen Elizabeth. The details come from a leak of 13.4 million files that expose the global environments in which tax abuses can thrive - and the complex and seemingly artificial ways the wealthiest corporations can legally protect their wealth. VOA

London, November 6, 2017 : A huge new leak of financial documents has revealed how the powerful and ultra-wealthy including Britain’s Queen Elizabeth II’s private estate secretly invest vast amounts of cash in different offshore tax havens, media reports said on Monday.

The details come from a leak of 13.4 million files in the Paradise Papers on Sunday that expose the global environments in which tax abuses can thrive – and the complex and seemingly artificial ways the wealthiest corporations can legally protect their wealth.

The material which has come from two offshore service providers and the company registries of 19 tax havens was obtained by the German newspaper Süddeutsche Zeitung and shared by the International Consortium of Investigative Journalists (ICIJ) with 100 other media organisations including the Guardian, the BBC and The New York Times.

Some of the revelations in the Paradise Papers include millions of pounds from Queen Elizabeth II’s private estate that has been invested in a Cayman Islands fund and some of her money that went to a retailer accused of exploiting poor families and vulnerable people.

Paradise Papers detail extensive offshore dealings by US President Donald Trump’s cabinet members advisers and donors including substantial payments from a firm co-owned by Russian President Vladimir Putin’s son-in-law to the shipping group of the US Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross.

The leak shows how social media giants Twitter and Facebook received millions in investments that can be traced back to Russian state financial institutions along with aggressive tax avoidance by multinational corporations including Nike and Apple.

It also includes information about a tax-avoiding Cayman Islands trust managed by the Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s chief wealth manager.

The leak also includes how some of the biggest names in the film and TV industries protect their wealth with an array of offshore schemes and the complex offshore webs used by two Russian billionaires to buy stakes in Arsenal and Everton football clubs.

The disclosures will put pressure on world leaders including Trump and British Prime Minister Theresa May who have both pledged to curb aggressive tax avoidance schemes.

The publication of this investigation for which more than 380 journalists have spent a year combing through data that stretches back 70 years comes at a time of growing global income inequality.

Offshore finance is about a place outside of one’s own nation’s regulations to which companies or individuals can reroute money assets or profits to take advantage of lower taxes reports the BBC.

These jurisdictions are known as tax havens to the layman or the more stately offshore financial centres (OFCs) to the industry. They are generally stable secretive and reliable often small islands but not exclusively so and can vary on how rigorously they carry out checks on wrongdoing. (IANS)

  • US President Donald Trump said on Sunday that he expected to meet his Russian counterpart Vladimir Putin during his Asia tour.

“I think it’s expected we’ll meet with Putin, yeah. We want Putin’s help on North Korea, and we’ll be meeting with a lot of different leaders,” Donald Trump told reporters on Air Force One before landing at the Yokota Air Base in Japan, Efe reported.

Putin is scheduled to participate in the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) summit in Da Nang, Vietnam, which Trump will also attend as part of his long Asia tour.

The North Korean nuclear threat is expected to dominate Donald Trump’s meetings in Japan and the next two stages of his tour, South Korea and China, where he will have a highly anticipated sit-down with Chinese President Xi Jinping.

The remainder of the tour will be more focused on economic issues, with Trump scheduled to take part in the APEC meeting in Da Nang and then in the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) Summit and the East Asia Summit in the Philippines.

Donald Trump’s first trip to Asia is the longest international tour by a US head of state since the one then-President George H.W. Bush embarked on in 1992.

Bush became ill at the end of that trip, famously vomiting on the Japanese prime minister’s lap at a formal dinner before fainting.(IANS)
