The Australian Federal government's finance minister is a guy by the name of Mattias Cormann.

He recently awarded a Billion dollar government contract to a travel agent company called HelloWorld Travel, whose managing director is a liberal party treasurer. (Not an elected person or member of the government, but the parties actual treasurer)

Cormann also booked a family holiday through HelloWorld travel. Fair enough.

They charged him the staff rate, not the normal customer rate, and completely forgot to actually charge his credit card. supposedly.

Cormann never noticed until asked about it by a reporter.


So either we have a corrupt Minister for Finance, which fits with how corrupt this government is, ...
or we have a Minister for Finance who failed to notice a $3000 bill NOT turning up on his credit card.

Anyway, video of the questioning. Pardon the ad. Enjoy the accent.

Reports are that there might be a few more poli's that Helloworld Travel "forgot" to charge.

About 6 more.

So quick summary...

* Epstein basically runs a child sex trafficking ring. Gets caught.
* Hires high powered lawyers (one of which is smr's favorite beacon of honor and integrity Alan Dershowitz)
* His lawyers and the federal prosecutor assigned to the case make a deal to enter a non-prosecution agreement.

Now here's where it gets crazy... it was bad enough that the prosecutor let off a guy who was basically arranging the mass rape of children with a slap on the wrist. But then on top of that he also extended the non-prosecution agreement to ALL OTHER PARTIES INVOLVED. Nobody who was in on it with Epstein would be charged. They would all get off absolutely 100% scott free. Usually you enter into a plea deal with one criminal in order for them to flip on and CATCH the other criminals. Not to let EVERYONE get away with it.

And then to make it more crazy, they hid the plea agreement from the victims until it was too late for them to protest it. Which is, as the judge ruled today, illegal.


Icing on the cake? Trump made the prosecutor in question, Alex Acosta, his Secretary of Labor.

...How many of Trump's appointments have since been arrested or are under investigation?

Maybe he was setting them up to be arrested by appointing them?

They say an army marches on it's stomach...

Which probably explains the Pentagon spending $4.6 million on Alaskan crab and lobster tails in September last year alone.

Smr, everytime I see somebody post something like that it makes me sad.

That foreigners have to educate you on your own countries, hell your own party's history.

Have educated you actually, but you've ignored it.


The two swapped political position in the middle of the 20th century.

That's the thing about organizations.
Their history is one thing, but you really have to look at how they are now.
And that is what I'd tell those people in that video.

Trump claims he's never met someone he took a selfie with ...

... who is also a Madam with links to Human Trafficking.

Am I alone in thinking that Trump actually the one who is guilty of everything he says about others?
(Or is he just projecting harder than an IMAX?)

... does this mean he's really a Kenyan Moslem!!!

You really can't make this shit up.
https://www.npr.org/2019/03/21/70556158 ... ittee-says

Jared Kushner's attorney told the House Committee on Oversight and Reform that Kushner uses private messaging applications and personal email to communicate about official White House matters, the committee wrote in a letter to White House Counsel Pat Cipollone on Thursday.

...

Aside from the Kushners, the House committee said other officials such as the former deputy national security adviser K.T. McFarland and former White House chief strategist Steve Bannon used their personal email accounts to discuss the "transfer of sensitive U.S. nuclear technology to Saudi Arabia." The panel produced a report last month alleging that the Trump administration sought to rush the transfer of American nuclear technology to Saudi Arabia in potential violation of the law.


You'd think that, after all the bullshit about Clinton's use of non-governmental communication systems, they'd at least try to pretend to be careful about this shit, but no. Hypocrisy, it seems, is a highly competitive sport in the Trump administration.
