FBI and Canadian RCMP Investigating Ivanka in Vancouver Deal

Both the FBI and its counterparts in Canada, the Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP), are investigating Ivanka Trump’s business dealings and the financing of Trump International Hotel and Tower in Vancouver.

“In the case of Vancouver, it’s not clear why investigators are examining this particular deal,” reads a report on CNN. “The timing of the deal – as one of the few Trump-branded properties to open since Trump took office – could be of interest. The flow of foreign money, either from the developer or international condo buyers, could also be sparking scrutiny.”

The investigation comes as the first daughter is trying to obtain full security clearance in her role as adviser to U.S. President Donald Trump.

First prince, Jared Kushner, recently had his security clearance level downgraded. This past week it was reveal he is under scrutiny after it emerged his family company secured more than $500 million in loans after financial executives met with him at the White House.

The $360-million tower was unveiled exactly this week one year ago with Trump brothers Eric and Donald Jr. arriving in Vancouver to oversee opening ceremonies along with Tiah’s Malaysia-based businessman father, Tiah Thee Kian.

Tiah declined an interview request, and a spokesperson declined to answer questions about the financial arrangement between Holborn and the Trump Organization.

Days after Trump pledged to ban Muslim immigration to the United States, in December 2015, Vancouver Mayor Gregor Robertson had even written to the hotel’s developer asking that Trump’s name be removed from the building.
At the time, Ivanka Trump’s involvement in the Vancouver property was described as a hands-on role in its interior design. There is a spa in the property that bears her name.

The Vancouver tower was one of the first of the family’s non-U.S. properties to open after Trump became president, sparking interest because President Trump had handed over the running of his empire to his family members, but did not divest himself of his ownership.

At the time, American reporters were looking into Trump’s dealings with Russia and ownership of individual units at Trump properties around the world.

NRA’s Chris Loesch Tried to Get Me Fired from My Job

You can’t make this up: Chris Loesch of the NRA called up the US Secret Service and tried to get me fired from my job, because I criticized the NRA and his wife for being hypocrites.

Seriously — he actually has been calling the Secret Service up over and over again looking to get me fired. I’m not sure why, as a private citizen that like millions of other people that dislike the NRA, I am a target.

Here’s the problem: I haven’t worked as a consultant for the Secret Service in 20 years, and no longer have anything to do with them whatsoever. Calling them up is only going to annoy them, because I’m neither an employee or contractor.

Still, it raises questions why Chris Loesch would target me of all the people out there to get “fired” from his job? I can only assume its because I’m a visible progressive Jew and he’s such a snowflake that he needs to threaten people with exposure to get his way.

However, this is what the NRA does: they threaten people with violence and exposure to hurt them on a day to day basis. That’s when they aren’t molesting their own kids.

Facebook and Apple have removed content belonging to controversial radio host Alex Jones.

Jones’ pages were removed from Facebook for “repeatedly posting content over the past several days that breaks” community standards, including urging his followers to harass and illegally threaten minor victims of violent shootings,

“All four pages have been unpublished for repeated violations of Community Standards and accumulating too many strikes,” a Facebook post said. The four pages were Alex Jones Channel Page, the Alex Jones Page, the InfoWars Page and InfoWars Nightly News page. Jones himself was placed on a 30-day block for his role in posting the content.

Facebook said the violations included posts that glorified violence and others that used dehumanizing language to describe people who are transgender, Muslims and immigrants. Jones is able to appeal the ban but if he doesn’t or those efforts fail, the pages will be removed permanently.

The pages have more than 2.5 million followers.

The Facebook ban comes after Apple, YouTube and Spotify removed Jones’ podcast and videos from their platforms. Apple’s decision removed five of Jones’ six podcasts, including “The Alex Jones Show.”

Jones is known for promoting a host of conspiracy theories, most noticeably one that claims the 2012 shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School was fake and those involved were actors. Families in the massacre that claimed the lives of 20 young children have filed defamation lawsuits against Jones.

U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement officers barricaded an employee and visitor entrance Wednesday to prevent activists from performing an “occupation” of the agency’s D.C. headquarters.

Several dozen activists had intended to enter the building to protest Trump administration deportation and border detention policies, but arrived to find temporary fencing and a line of officers blocking their way.

Amid heavy rain, activists chanted slogans anyhow, including “quit your jobs!” at Department of Homeland Security guards and ICE employees who peered from windows.

The protest was organized by Movimiento Cosecha and was advertised in a press release as a demonstration by “undocumented activists and allies,” as similar protests occur in other cities.
