TERRY GAVAN – THIS BLOG KILLS FASCISTS
Jared Kushner is either a real bright guy … or a really stupid man. The jury is still out, but we have to remember that Kushner is the president’s son-in-law and the chosen inheritor of a gene pool that has a few leaks. But familial loyalty is strong. So no matter that Kushner has made a few pretty stupid business deals and in spite of his completely batshit oversight regarding his mismanaged and incompetent role in the Rump transition, he’s the guy moving around in the shadows of Rump.
Many GOP members never though this level of nepotism – installing the Addams Family into the buttcrack of an already corrupt administration – was a wise move. But then again, most of those lickspittle Republicans supported anything that the candidate Rump did, or said, or tweeted. Until The Rump won.
And so now that Kushner has become a person of indelibly indelicate interest in an FBI investigation into Russian interference in The Rump White House, the GOP sycophants are finding it increasingly hard to stand idle as this parade of bumpkins continue to emerge from the termite-ridden floorboards.
Ivanka just took about $100,000 million from a Saudi King. The president is still saying “if they hacked us” whenever he mentions the Russian election coup. Kushner is now accused of setting up a secret backchannel network with the Russians and possibly discussing a leavening of Russian sanctions. Mike Flynn was fired for his role in the Russian debacle and yes, the presumed designate president, still hates gays and believe that dinosaurs are a myth. Unicorns are a myth. Velociraptors are real.
Jared Kushner and Russia’s ambassador to Washington discussed the possibility of setting up a secret and secure communications channel between Trump’s transition team and the Kremlin, using Russian diplomatic facilities in an apparent move to shield their pre-inauguration discussions from monitoring, according to U.S. officials briefed on intelligence reports.
Ambassador Sergey Kislyak reported to his superiors in Moscow that Kushner, son-in-law and confidant to then-President-elect Trump, made the proposal during a meeting on Dec. 1 or 2 at Trump Tower, according to intercepts of Russian communications that were reviewed by U.S. officials. Kislyak said Kushner suggested using Russian diplomatic facilities in the United States for the communications.

Trump fired an FBI director, Jim Comey, who would not drop the investigation into this swirl of ambivalence. Trump invited a vaudeville team of Kissmearse and Goofonov into the oval office and then after some laughing and backslapping gave up a Mossad operation in the time it takes to say, “I did not reveal the name Israel” to the Israeli Knesset. Which, by the way, he also did. In Israel, in front of a fairly fascist ruler in his own right, Benny Netanyahu.
Kushner is a lightweight. And he’s probably read way too many spy novels. He doesn’t speak much, like his arch enemy Steve Bannon, and that shit is meaningful. It’s sinister when you’ve got two guys in the White House standing like twin sphinx on either shoulder of The Rump. Hearken please the dobermans, Haldeman and Ehrlichman who performed similar duties for Tricky Dick the racist prick back in the day. Who brought them down?
Speaking of the WAPO (Washington Post circa Ben Bradlee) we can be thankful that they ain’t broke yet. Because between the WAPO and the NYT (New York Times) it seems like the fourth estate is the only guardrail that is holding up to scrutiny. (That and commendable leaking from a democracy loving few who, unlike Donald Trump, have read and still respect the constitution of the USA.)
The White House disclosed the meeting only in March, playing down its significance. But people familiar with the matter say the FBI now considers the encounter, as well as another meeting Kushner had with a Russian banker, to be of investigative interest.
Kislyak reportedly was taken aback by the suggestion of allowing an American to use Russian communications gear at its embassy or consulate — a proposal that would have carried security risks for Moscow as well as the Trump team. — Washington Post Breaking News
Now Kissmearse is lying here. The Russians are like Trump. They lie even when the truth would be better. So nothing emanating from Putin’s febrile and tremulous arseholey proletariat should be believed. Most of the Russian actors in this wee off-Broadway farce come to the stage via the old KGB. They look like overstuffed bit dime-store hacks, but they’re smart spies. they’ve been dealing hands to young quislings for the best part of their lives. They’re capable, like Putin, of despicable acts, even murder.
So how bright is Jared Kushner?
Let’s put it this way. Not brighter than a group of former KGB thugs with soft targets on their mind.
