Doing good photo ops is not the same as ‘doing good’, honeychile.

When his term first started, he broke apart some of the government’s programs for women and I can’t remember now, something something else that Ivanka was interested in, and she came up with her own proposals...that were pretty much exactly what was already there but with her name on them. I don’t think anything she has been involved in has come to fruition or made a single bit of difference. Prove me wrong.

:yeah: 100%

Also, I won't disagree that assisting women and minority entrepreneurs is a good thing, but let's be honest about this particular class of people. It's not everyone that has the support network that it takes to go into business. As a group within the larger population of women, they are the least in need of support. I'm not trying to diminish the fact that they are more disadvantaged than their male counterparts, but trying to claim you are doing good for women in general when you are really focusing on women that already have enough measure of support that they can afford to strike out on their own is just disingenuous at the very least.

Damn, I'm not getting HBO just to see this :madguy:




Moar: https://www.axios.com/kushner-mbs-refug ... gn=organic
Discussing the horrific death of Washington Post columnist Jamal Khashoggi in an interview with "Axios on HBO," White House adviser Jared Kushner was noncommittal on whether Saudi Crown Mohammed bin Salman (MBS) must account for Khashoggi's body.

Kushner said he's still waiting for results of a U.S. investigation to assign blame, even though the CIA reportedly determined with a high degree of confidence that MBS ordered the murder, and the U.S. Senate unanimously declared that he was responsible.



Why it matters: Kushner, who shares the president's view that Saudi Arabia is a crucial partner to counter Iran, has formed a close relationship with MBS and helped promote him as a great reformer. We see here that even eight months after Khashoggi's death in a Saudi consulate, the White House still refuses to publicly hold the Saudi leader accountable.
•Asked whether he would join Khashoggi's fiancée in calling on the Saudi government to release his body (or identify where they put the body parts) so that his family might bury him, Kushner said: "Look, it's a horrific thing that happened. … Once we have all the facts, then we'll make a policy determination, but that would be up to the Secretary of State to push on our policy."

The Guardian: The Guardian’s Jon Swaine reports today that a real estate company part-owned by Jared Kushner has received $90m in foreign funding from an opaque offshore vehicle since he entered the White House as a senior adviser to his father-in-law Donald Trump.

Investment has flowed from overseas to the company, Cadre, while Kushner works as an international envoy for the US, according to corporate filings and interviews. The money came through a vehicle run by Goldman Sachs in the Cayman Islands, a tax haven that guarantees corporate secrecy.

Kushner, who is married to Trump’s elder daughter Ivanka, kept a stake in Cadre after joining the administration, while selling other assets. His holding is now valued at up to $50m, according to his financial disclosure.

You can read his full report here.

Financial disclosure form shows Ivanka Trump earned $4M from DC Trump hotel

Ivanka Trump, the president's daughter and adviser, made about $4 million last year from her investment in the Trump International Hotel in Washington, D.C., according to a newly released financial disclosure form.

She also made between $1 million and $5 million from a trust that holds her fashion companies.

The income from the D.C. hotel in 2018 was similar to her income from the business in 2017, while she had income of more than $5 million from the trust in 2017. Trump announced in July of last year that she planned to close her fashion brands business.
..................................

In total, the financial-disclosure forms of Ivanka Trump and her husband, Jared Kushner, who also works as a White House aide, show that the couple had millions in outside income in 2018. The couple reported income of between about $28 million and about $135 million, according to Bloomberg and Forbes.

The reports have not yet received approval from the White House counsel's office, Bloomberg noted. The Office of Government Ethics will review the reports.

That's pretty much the take of Bernard Avishai writing in The New Yorker. And the economic platitudes are Republican "solutions." We know who gets rich in that vision.

So let me get this straight. First we move our embassy to Jerusalem -- effectively giving the proverbial finger to the Palestinians -- and now we try to bribe them? This conflict was never about money.

Reading the NewYorker article, seems to me that Kushner has not learnt anything on politics nor Middle East history over the last couple of years.

Jared is a feckless dilettante in politics, a disgusting slumlord, a horrible businessman and generally an evil person. Just like his wife. His father-in-law sees a lot of himself in Jared. (And probably wishes he could have married Jared's wife.)

Kushner’s attempt to decide economic priorities first while initially sidestepping politics ignores the realities of the conflict, say many experts.

“This is completely out of sequence because the Israeli-Palestinian issue is primarily driven by historical wounds and overlapping claims to land and sacred space,” said Aaron David Miller, a former Middle East negotiator for Republican and Democratic administrations.

Kushner acknowledges that “you can’t push the economic plan forward without resolving the political issues as well.” The administration, he said, will “address that at a later time,” referring to the second stage of the peace plan’s rollout now expected no earlier than November.

Jesus, he got this shit from Nixon and Kissinger, wew have a plan, right after the election.

At least Nixon and Kissinger were almost as smart as they were evil. Jared and Very Stable Genius are both dumber than a box of hammers.

Watchdog claims Ivanka Trump violated Hatch Act after federal office called for Conway's firing

A watchdog group filed a complaint with the Office of Special Counsel (OSC) on Thursday claiming Ivanka Trump, who is President Trump’s daughter and serves as his assistant, violated the Hatch Act, which bars federal employees from engaging in elections in their official capacity.

Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington (CREW) cited a tweet from Ivanka Trump two days before the president’s 2020 campaign launch that featured the campaign slogan “Make America Great Again” and stated “the best is yet to come.”
<snipped her tweet>
CREW said that she has used her government Twitter account to retweet “multiple partisan political posts” since March 2018.

“It has become clear that this rampant abuse of public office is not a problem of ‘one bad apple’ but rather a key feature of the Trump White House,” said CREW Executive Director Noah Bookbinder.

“By blatantly using her office for politics right after the Office of Special Counsel recommended her colleague be fired for repeatedly acting similarly, Ivanka Trump has basically thumbed her nose at the OSC and the rule of law. Never before have we witnessed this level of illegal politicized behavior, and it must not be allowed to continue.” <SNIP>

Jared Kushner, Ivanka Trump to appear at fundraiser for Jim Jordan: report

Jared Kushner and Ivanka Trump will reportedly appear at a fundraiser next month for Rep. Jim Jordan (R-Ohio).

Kushner, the president's son-in-law and senior adviser, and Trump, the president's daughter and adviser, will reportedly appear at the July 18 event hosted by the American Conservative Union PAC, Politico reported Tuesday.

The event will take place at the home of the PAC's president, Matt Schlapp.

Kushner has previously helped fundraise for Rep. Mark Meadows (R-N.C.), Jordan's fellow House Freedom Caucus member.

The Hill has reached out to the American Conservative Union and the White House for comment. Jordan's office did not immediately respond to The Hill's request for comment.

Jordan is one of President Trump's staunchest supporters in the House.

Watch her body language. It is like a 14 year old's. After she says, "...Male dominated" (her hands swirling), she puts her hands down, then clasps them, then smiles prettily. It works for Daddy....

The other teenlike picture has her holding her hair back while smiling at Daddy.
