I just posted an infographic highlighting the numerous connections between Trump and the Russians. The story is becoming very complex, but I think the infographic is helpful because it divides the various relationships into categories.
Gazprom (and Rosneft)--->energy
DST--->technology (including Facebook and Twitter)
VTB--->second largest Russian bank, connected to En+
En+ Group and Rusal----> major investment companies
Bank of Cyprus----> conduit for millions paid to Manafort and well known as the place to launder money. Wilbur Ross, our Sec of Commerce, served on the Board until March 2017.
Access Industries--->campaign contributions to numerous Republicans, including Mitch McConnell, Marco Rubio, Lindsey Graham, Scott Walker etc. Oh, and Trump and McCain and others. Russian oligarch Blavatnik contributed 1 million bucks to the Inaugural Committee. Blavatnik and Vekselberg own most of Rusal and Vekselberg is the largest shareholder of the ...guess what bank....yes, Bank of Cyprus!
Columbus Nova--->US arm of Velselberg's companies Renova Group.
I am appalled at the fact that Trump was able to hoodwink the voters into believing he would "drain the swamp". This IS the swamp-these beyond rich "people" are slowly amassing most of the wealth in this world, in a ploy for domination.
In the meantime, child labor laws are being relaxed and your 17 year old kid will now be expected to run heavy machinery for minimum wage. Black and brown people are being harassed on a daily basis in public places in America, while the police do the bidding of the masters. Healthcare is becoming even more unaffordable, and fresh food will soon be very expensive as we have slowed down guest visas. Gas prices are rising-hmmm see the first category-and whatever tax benefit you got from that attempt to buy us, well, it will get eaten up in transportation costs.
Stay home and use the computer. Check out Facebook and Twitter and Instagram for some cheap entertainment. Continue to stay asleep even while using platforms owned partially by these Russian oligarchs and their Silicon Valley hacks.
What has happened to America? Universe, help us rediscover our hopes and dreams and generosity of spirit.
