Not surprising. Not shocking. Park your profits overseas and your shareholders profit.

Your workers continue to get paid less than they should.

Many of these companies made their homes in places like Ireland (remember the old days when corporate inversions). Then there are the old standbys like the Caymans and Bermuda.

Cruise lines? They’re American companies, but they’re offshore to avoid all kinds of regulatory oversight. That’s why they’re flagged elsewhere.

Trump’s clothing lines? Made overseas (just throwing that in to see if we’re still paying attention).

Can we bring back Teddy Roosevelt’s term “Malefactors of great wealth”? He was a Republican, so that makes it OK, right?

Shapiro should ask himself what made his rantings so palatable to this shooter. But he won’t. He’ll just deflect and play the blame game without taking responsibility for himself just like he did for his years on Breitbart. Shapiro’s a useless piece of shit that caters to even more useless pieces of shit who fancy him their millennial oracle when he’s really just another stupid person’s idea of a smart person.

If Cohen DIDN’T say Hannity was a client….wouldn’t law enforcement be justified in going through their communications to go look for relevant information and not think a second thought about it? Can’t stay out of privileged communications if you won’t tell anybody who’s your client….

He won’t. I feel bad that he’s received antisemitic harassment but he shouldn’t have been so shocked when the bigots he made friends with turned out to hate bigots. I wish nothing but the worse for Shapiro because he’s nothing but a bullying little asshole who whines when Karma bites him in his egomanical asshole.

That’s…. um….. Rich.

Hannity spewed nonstop conspiracy theories about Seth Rich and Rich’s family demanded Hannity stop. He refused. Hannity and Fox should be sued out of existence for that alone, but here we are.

Hannity may get his comeuppance because his lawyer is a dumbass and Trump isn’t any brighter.

That would be the siege/catapult scene from the Bollywood fantasy epic “Baahubali 2: The Conclusion” (sequel to the original Baahubali naturally). Name is all sorts of ironic since it’s all but certain there will be a 3rd movie sometime in the next couple of years..

I still have to watch those. I watched my first Bollywood movie last week with Mrs. Fish and we found it fantastic, albeit tragic. Can’t remember the name off the top of my head. But everybody at my former company loved Baahubali and I never got around to it, but I still want to.

Ah yes, fantastic yet tragic is a common thing in many Bollywood movies.
Also great dance bits and brilliant scenes featuring ridiculous “realism” (see the catapult scene, basically that but with a huge budget).

Before cable TV arrived there in the 90s, you had only a select few TV channels in the entire Middle East. One channel in particular, METV, aired in all the countries and had a regular weekly Bollywood film. EVERYONE watched those, across all ages, and almost religiously (with subtitles for the most part, but the real fun was figuring out the plot when there weren’t any).

Hell, watching those once a week was possibly the shared tradition that Israelis, Turks, Jordanians, and Syrians could have built a lasting peace treaty upon…/

Yesterday there were tweets from Ari Melber where he was expressing doubts about the James Comey book and what Comey claims and how he positions himself.

Earlier he did a piece on his show about it. When I looked the video up, he has another video with the same title with additions and posted later this evening.

He does a pretty good job breaking Comey down. It helps set up Rachel for her Thursday night interview with Comey.

Black Harvard educated lawyer, black man who made something of himself after being raised by a single Mom, black man who beat an admiral and governor’s son to be President. Black man who is the most intelligent president we’ve had in my life.

In poking around the web today, here’s my favorite put-down:

You and the rest of the stupid Trumpanzees should just retreat into the lower third of Trump’s large intestine where, huddled together in ignorance, you can feel safe until Trump’s next bowel movement.

re: #73 goddamnedfrank

Very true. As the saying goes, any attorney who represents himself has a fool for a client.

Off-topic:

The picture from the referenced Vanity Fair article was reportedly from a get-together Friday afternoon. Cohen apparently blew off a hearing in Judge Woods courtroom to be at the ‘get-together’. Reportedly, the people hanging out with Cohen included the son-in-law of a billionaire Russian Oligarch as well as the former CFO of a unit of Duetsche Bank.

Supposedly, the meeting was well publicized, including inviting photographers. From that, I assume that some sort of message was being sent to someone. (Obviously not me. And that’s okay.)

Does anyone have more insight into the point of the meeting?

There’s actually a huge streak of water on the outside of my building. From the 2nd floor down. My neighbor is not home yet. I asked, but never got her #. The property manager for the community called (I have contacts) & is trying to reach her.

Personally, I think every single Republican in the country, from the county dog catcher to the president, is a criminal liar. Every one top to bottom. They need to be eradicated, the entire party. Disbanded completely. A new party needs to be created.

I’m starting to think Fox is part of the Russian long con. Murdoch has ties to Putin. There needs to be a law that American news has to be owned by Americans and that news must be truthful. None of those truthiness bullshit. Differences in opinion are one thing, Fox is a whole different thing.

Until the mass media that divides and lies is addressed, we will never be whole again.

Oh, poor Chica! And poor SS!
Happened to my sister awhile back — upstairs neighbors left town and left a window open. In Boston. Weather turned, pipes froze, huge leak and flood on a weekend when the landlady wasn’t answering the phone for hours. Only saving grace was that the major damage was in the bathroom rather than her bedroom or den so she only lost a few books. (Librarian. Owns about 5000 books in a tiny apartment. Yes, there’s a bookshelf in the bathroom too.) Took a couple of months to get it all repaired.

Hope you haven’t lost too much in the deluge, and you can get some strong backs to clear everything out.

Greets and saluts from the Resistance in the NYC metro area after a day where we got nearly 3 inches of rain in a couple of hours and saw flash floods all day long (phones were going off all morning long with flash flood warnings in waves).

But it’s not the rain that has me writing this morning. It’s the Stormy weather in Trumpworld. Hannity is in deep trouble, and he still doesn’t quite get it. Fox is in trouble here too, but they might know it. It starts with ethics in journalism.

Hannity had ethics?

Fox has ethics?

No. Just no.

Stop right there.

Hannity has the ethics of a limp noodle that can be twisted and turned however he sees fit. He’s got a certain moral flexibility that allows him to continually lie and misrepresent facts and the state of the world to perpetually keep his viewers/listeners misinformed for years on end.

Hannity is an amoral agitprop merchant. It’s what he does and it’s who he is.

And Fox News lacks any morals or ethics either. After all, they’re the same outfit that paid off women for sex harassment claims and then gave the harassers golden parachutes to get out.

Oh, and did I mention that the golden parachutes were more money than the settlements?

Fox should have canned Hannity after the Seth Rich debacle, except they didn’t. They stood by him even after the family of Rich demanded that he stop spreading nonsensical conspiracy theories about their son’s death - which Hannity tied to Clinton.

The family is suing Fox; and frankly they have a damned good case.

The fact that Hannity has had Cohen on and never disclosed that Cohen was his lawyer is a huge no-no. Heck, there’s a reason that when media outlets like ABC do reporting on movies, they have to add the disclaimer that Disney is the parent company to ABC. It’s to avoid the appearance of impropriety.

Hannity doesn’t give a crap about any of that. He’s more interested in dumping on Clinton and deflecting attention from Trumpworld. That he’s now watching it all crumble down around him is… not quite justice, but it is the start of schadenfreude.
