Funny how the foreign donations to Obama and Hillary just magically never get investigated.

We need to build a ball field inside a prison out in the middle of nowhere and dream about Bummer and HillaBeans suddenly appearing inside the locked gates.

A report from intelligence officials found with “high confidence” that $320M Mexican Pesos (approximately $15M USD) was transferred from EL CHAPO’s offshore shell assets in Saudi Arabia and Ukraine to Hillary Clinton’s private account in the Cayman Island. This was then redirected to the Clinton Foundation.

someone tell President Trump he should stop State Dept funding going to the US Studies Centre at the Uni of Sydney in Australia.
in May 2017, they had John McCain suddenly turn up to speak, in what seemed to outsiders as a visit so McCain could coordinate Spygate stories with a Five Eyes partner.

the Centre is noted for being anti-Trump:

11 Mar: ABC: 9/11 conspiracist among nine entities declaring activities on Foreign Influence Transparency Register
Exclusive by political reporter Melissa Clarke
Attorney-General Christian Porter told the ABC there were about 18 more “fairly late lodgements” that were yet to be processed or made public...
Any person or organisation that aims to influence Parliament or the democratic process on behalf of a “foreign principal” is meant to declare their actions under the scheme.

The United States Studies Centre is one organisation that has registered, noting it is funded by the US Department of State to engage in “general political lobbying”...

12 Mar: ABC: Donald Trump shouldn’t be impeached because he’s ‘not worth it’, says Nancy Pelosi
By Peter Marsh, ABC & Reuters
The looming release of the Mueller report could be the reason for Ms Pelosi’s comments, according to Senior Lecturer in American Politics and Foreign Policy at the United States Studies Centre David Smith.
“This could be a tactical manoeuvre from Pelosi in order to actually secure the public release of the Mueller report,” he said.
But Dr Smith says he believes Ms Peolsi’s comments are more than just a political play.
That’s because …
Pelosi is right when she says Trump is ‘not worth it’...

26 Aug 2018: ABC: With John McCain’s passing, a powerful voice for American global leadership has been silenced
By Professor Simon Jackman, chief executive of the US Studies Centre at the University of Sydney
Many American allies would have described him as their greatest friend in the US Congress. This was certainly true for Australia.
He offered reassurance to Australia after the famously brusque Trump-Turnbull phone call, openly criticising Mr Trump for an “unnecessary and frankly harmful open dispute” just weeks into Mr Trump’s presidency, a remarkable act by a senior senator from the same party as the President...

McCain addressed Sydney audience
Last year — in what would be his last international trip — the United States Studies Centre in Sydney hosted an address by Senator McCain. The State Library of New South Wales made the Mitchell Library Reading Room available for the occasion, one of only a handful of times the magnificent room has been used for a public event in its 100-year history...

But in his address to the US Studies Centre last year, Senator McCain did not shy away from conceding that Mr Trump was “unsettling” American allies, or that there is a debate underway in the United States about its role in the world, its resolution uncertain...

When such monetary fines are paid, where does the money end up? What US agency benefits from the influx of money?

I think it should go toward closer monitoring of voter registration fraud and removal from voter rolls of those determined to be invalid.

Mueller, the Bush -Obama- Comey connection of collusion and fixing.

I also remember when those snakes went after Ashkkroft to avoid domestic spying of their operatives only to use FISA against Trump

So the committee was fined $390,000. At one time Jeb! was selling guacamole bowls for $75 each (really). Can this fine be paid in guacamole bowls? If so, it would take 5200 of them.
