I mean all he wants to do is knock down his loss making building that he cant sell the units on, and build a BIGGER Building with MORE Units that he wont be able to sell! That way all the units will make MORE money to pay off all the debts! Easy!

And he knows a guy who can build it for a good price!
Hope he's intending to use pre-cast concrete and not steel.

Well, I am sure that the DOTUS could supervise the construction during his "Executive Time."

Kushner has called Bolton for advice over past year: report

White House senior adviser Jared Kushner has reportedly been in regular contact with incoming national security adviser John Bolton over the past year to ask him for advice.

The Wall Street Journal reported Wednesday that Kushner has called Bolton for advice and insight about the United Nations, among other issues. In addition, White House aides reportedly asked Kushner to speak with Bolton about important policy matters so that Bolton was familiar with the administration’s positions on various issues when he went on cable TV.

Prior to joining the White House, Bolton worked as a commentator for Fox News.

Kushner is responsible for an expansive White House portfolio that includes working on a Middle East peace agreement and relations with Mexico. It's unclear how his responsibilities have been changed after his security clearance was recently downgraded.

President Trump last week tweeted that he’d chosen Bolton, a former UN ambassador during the George W. Bush administration, to replace H.R. McMaster as his national security adviser. <SNIP>

https://www.cnn.com/2018/03/29/politics ... index.html
Washington (CNN) — Six House Democrats are calling on FBI Director Christopher Wray to investigate whether President Donald Trump's son-in-law and senior White House aide Jared Kushner leaked classified information to Saudi Crown Prince Mohammad bin Salman, according to a letter obtained by CNN.

The call comes after The Intercept, citing three sources, reported that the Saudi prince -- known casually by his initials, MBS -- told confidantes after their meeting last year that Kushner had discussed Saudi leaders who are disloyal to the crown prince.

"We request the FBI open an immediate investigation to determine if these reports are accurate and to explore the extent to which information and sources may have been comprised," reads the letter from Democratic Reps. Ted Lieu, Gerald Connolly, Donald Beyer, Pramila Jaypal, Peter Welch and Ruben Gallego.

The letter notes that the "integrity of classified information" falls within the purview of the FBI but that "while the President has the authority to declassify and share information, the President's advisers do not."

According to The Intercept, one person "who talks frequently to confidants of the Saudi and Emirati rulers" told the publication that MBS bragged to United Arab Emirates Crown Prince Mohammed bin Zayed that Kushner was "in his pocket." The publication added that the information on the Saudi royals not loyal to him was contained within the President's Daily Brief, a document presented to the President every day that Kushner lost access to earlier this year when near security clearance rules were instituted by chief of staff John Kelly.

And, yet, Kushner's misconduct was not enough to get a sovereign loan from the Sauds. Sounds like he got played.

Which is consistent with the opinion that he's as dumb as a bag of rocks.

http://people.com/politics/planned-pare ... abortions/
In a riveting passage from Cecile Richards’ new memoir, the Planned Parenthood chief says Jared Kushner and Ivanka Trump were, during Donald Trump’s 2016 transition as president-elect, so eager to be recognized as shrewd political dealmakers that the soon-to-be first daughter and her husband made an offer that felt like a “bribe”: an increase in federal funding for Planned Parenthood in exchange for its agreement to stop providing abortions.

Richards, in Make Trouble: Standing Up, Speaking Out, and Finding the Courage to Lead, out Tuesday, says she was leery of taking the meeting in January 2017, but, after the defeat of Planned Parenthood’s champion, Hillary Clinton, she was open to finding possible new allies in the president-elect’s more moderate-leaning daughter and son-in-law.

The organization, after all, was a favorite target of Trump and the GOP. Shortly after the election, Speaker of the House Paul Ryan announced his intentions to defund Planned Parenthood and get rid of Obamacare. While he hasn’t succeeded, Planned Parenthood and its services continues to be a lightning rod for the right.

Kushner: We struck deal with Sinclair for straighter coverage
By JOSH DAWSEY and HADAS GOLD 12/16/2016 05:35 PM EST

Donald Trump's campaign struck a deal with Sinclair Broadcast Group during the campaign to try and secure better media coverage, his son-in-law Jared Kushner told business executives Friday in Manhattan.

Kushner said the agreement with Sinclair, which owns television stations across the country in many swing states and often packages news for their affiliates to run, gave them more access to Trump and the campaign, according to six people who heard his remarks.

In exchange, Sinclair would broadcast their Trump interviews across the country without commentary, Kushner said. Kushner highlighted that Sinclair, in states like Ohio, reaches a much wider audience — around 250,000 listeners — than networks like CNN, which reach somewhere around 30,000.

“It’s math,” Kushner said according to multiple attendees.

But Sinclair and other networks said such a deal is nothing nefarious or new - just an arrangement for extended sit-down interviews with both candidates, one many campaigns have done in previous years to get around the national media and directly to viewers in key states.

The Kushners used to attend social events and party with their liberal Manhattan friends, pretending themselves to be liberal as well. They were going to be the moderating forces in the administration.

They have proved themselves to be venal, money grubbing hypocrites whose only goal is money and power.

I hope they are forever shunned by their former friends. Like Trump himself, they are doing their part to make America white, Christian and intolerant again. While trying to enrich themselves.

Shanda.

who might be providing the financing for such a deal.
Who indeed?
The company has a $1.4 billion mortgage on the building that is due in 10 months. Real estate analysts doubt that the office space is worth that much, making a traditional refinancing of the building problematic.

The Kushners tried to make a deal with Anbang Insurance Group, a giant Chinese insurance company with ties to some of the Communist Party’s leading families, but those talks fell apart last year amid heightened scrutiny of the link to Mr. Trump.

Charles Kushner also sought a $500 million investment from the former prime minister of Qatar, according to The Intercept, the online news site. That entreaty was also unsuccessful.

The negotiations have drawn scrutiny because Jared Kushner’s White House responsibilities involve both China and the Middle East.

Kushner’s prison-reform push hits bipartisan resistance
The son-in-law of President Donald Trump is pressing for a criminal justice bill that’s narrower than a bipartisan one that has stalled in Congress.

By ELANA SCHOR and HEATHER CAYGLE 04/18/2018 06:58 PM EDT

Jared Kushner returned to the political spotlight Wednesday, visiting Capitol Hill to rally support for bipartisan prison reform — and rekindling a long-running internal GOP battle.

Kushner met with Republicans and Democrats to build momentum for prison legislation that could advance to the House floor as soon as next week. But he has a problem in the Senate, where members of both parties are pushing a more sweeping criminal justice package and are loath to scale it back despite entreaties from President Donald Trump’s son-in-law-turned-adviser.

Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley is perhaps the most powerful proponent of a broader criminal justice bill that tackles both sentencing and prison reform. The Iowa Republican has shown little eagerness to accommodate the Trump administration’s interest in a smaller-scale bill, slamming Attorney General Jeff Sessions in February after Sessions came out against his bipartisan criminal justice bill.

That would be a fascinating political move to watch unfold. On the one hand, he is right.. she is young, beautiful, sympathetic (in a never says anything so people just read whatever into her way) and popular. Putting any focus on her would raise a lot of defenders. On the other hand, if Mueller wanted to bait Donald into doing something foolish and incriminating, that would be the way to do it.

That is not a word I would use to describe her. This is purely a patriarchal, tribal move to protect Trump's daughter, while horndog Rudy G waits in the wings for her (unrealized by Trump).

As I have no Photoshop skills, could someone do a picture of a pack of disposable razors, substituting little Jareds for the razors, with a tag line along the lines of "Disposable Jareds -- Guaranteed to Solve All of Your Administration's Problems" and "Be Sure to Dispose of Responsibly". (tampons / pads would also work). Oh, maybe toothpicks "Stick a Jared in it -- but make sure not to swallow"
