Yeah !!

ChokePoint never did go after the Clinton Foundation did they?

Wonder why.

Oh wait.

The Panama Papers showed lots of foreign holdings under the Clintons' names.

No wonder.

I've been post banned for the exact same words, lost my "Writer" status. So now I try to articulate my opinion and feelings, you know, to add to the conversation instead of derailing it by attacking a poster's character because of their opinions.


Cool story bro.
I gave you a Star. Felt bad for you.

I never said that Operation Choke Point was the end all to all money laundering and would eliminate gangs and terrorists. But, it identified and targeted known problem areas.

Which is a thing generally handled by the heads of alphabet agencies without being told what needs to happen.


Trump has a habit of repeal with no plan or replacement to address the problems that those policies were meant to confront, as if things will just run themselves. That's how we got to the point of economic collapse, believing those holding the purse strings know what's best. Trump has espoused this belief many times. He couldn't be wronger, or care less about curtailing the money that funds criminal activity.

Well, this is riddled with opinion, not fact, so I'll have to treat it as such. I agree with agree with the pre-comma part of your first sentence (for the most part), but the reality is that these agencies SHOULD be allowed to run themselves with minimal oversight. That's why directors have assistant directors who have their managers under them, who have managers, and so on. If we can't trust these people to do their jobs (each agency has directives and jurisdictions plainly spelled out), then those people need replaced, but we should not imply that, without directives from the president, that these agencies can't do their jobs.

We'll disagree about your assessment on the financial collapse, but that's for a different thread.


Payday loan companies, people sending cash to PayPal accounts and GoFundMe accounts and the like are a relatively new phenomena. Old tried and true methods of tracking dirty money are as outdated Elliot Ness. If Trump is going to repeal an effort he thinks isn't working well, then he should have a plan in place to address the issue at hand.


Or--and hear me out--have each agency present him with their plans on engaging these types of crimes. That's a completely logical approach, too. Personally, I don't want the president's hand directly in every cookie jar of every agency in the federal government.

But that's not what he did. He destroyed a program and left no watchdog plan in its place. It's open season for money launderers!

Then you shouldn't support Trump, because he and family have their hands in ALL the cookie jars!

It is not--this is the hyperbole about which I spoke before. You're making this up because it's what you think, but it's not reflected in laws or reality. But, only time will tell, I suppose--funny thing is, cases about money laundering have crossed by desk many times before and during "Operation Choke Hold," and they will continue to do so. I think that my evidence outweighs your thought on the topic.

I must have missed your "evidence". All I'm seeing is your opinion.

How you twisted the above into that... If mental gymnastics was an Olympic sport you'd medal for sure!

P.s. just because hilldog hid hers by stealing from people in need doesn't make her less evil... In fact, even if trump is laundering cash... The way he's doing it isn't pure evil like the "other option" we had!

Seriously, grow up and maybe once don't swallow what you're told to on command with nary a thought!

Seriously, that was pathetic and I'm embarrassed for you.

in the real world obama is out of power, it's as much a blow to him as it is to jfk.

the opening poster does hilariously claim anti fascists are fascists, mods should stop the clearly brain damaged fellow from showing himself up with his mental incapacity.

Obama's legacy should be wiped away like tissue across an anus and flushed.





Is there a statue of Obama people could tear down, spit on, and kick? He did more to hurt this country than we can begin to know. I think it is about to all come out in the open soon.

This:

..is the only "evidence" that you've posted. You expect me to take your word, that you know better that Pres. Obama on how to deal with money laundering, because of what "evidence", supposedly crossed your desk.

Sorry, that's not good enough. Your so called evidence is nonexistent.

Then so be it. I can't exactly take pictures of case files and post them on here, so if you choose to disregard my point, I don't really care.

Even without my anecdotal evidence, your stance on the matter is illogical at best.

I wonder what the fascination is with "Undoing" anything Obama did?

You would think, will a rational person, would take a real look at the problems and then do what was needed to fix them. A knee jerk reaction to just "Undoing" anything someone in the "Other" party did, just because it's the "other" party, is retarded thinking.

Only in politics does this weird little worldview happen. Not sure why? Maybe because we keep elected mentally ill people?
