It sure seems like the Qatari government is using a dummy office to pay the president. Countless other foreign and American companies are also handing Trump money—sometimes without even knowing it—creating the most tangled web of ethical pitfalls the White House has ever seen.

That the Interior Department has now blessed oil and gas drilling in the coastal plain of the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge comes as no surprise. It was a foregone conclusion once Lisa Murkowski, in 2017, persuaded her Senate colleagues to authorize drilling in the refuge as part of a tax bill, ending protections that have been in place since the Eisenhower administration.

What has the Trump administration done with a half-trillion dollars? - The Washington Post | Agents of Behemoth | Scoop.it

That’s the question taxpayers should be asking as the Trump administration refuses to reveal where a half-trillion dollars of our hard-earned cash has gone.

Occupy Hades's insight:

Inquiring minds want to know if embezzlement is an impeachable offence. After all, it's not nice to rip off Uncle Sam. That goes double for the Heretic in the Oval Office and the Patrons of Greed in the GOP leadership.

Supporters turn on Trump for ‘flat-out lying’ about coronavirus: ‘He’s got no idea what the hell he’s doing’ – Raw Story | Agents of Behemoth | Scoop.it

President Donald Trump’s handling of the coronavirus crisis has been the breaking point for some of his fans in rural Virginia.A dozen seafood and agricultural workers in the state’s Northern Neck peninsula — where Trump beat Hillary Clinton by nearly 10 points in 2016 — expressed frustration to the Insider website over the president’s response to the COVID-19 outbreak.

Occupy Hades's insight:

Donald Trump treats Trump supporters like they're expendable. As if they're nothing more than a means to an end.
