Donald Trump Jr. Video Shows Happy Family, Friends Backstage at Rally Prior to Capitol Riot That Killed 5

What’s True:
A video by Donald Trump Jr., the president’s son, showed Trump and members of his inner circle dancing, smiling, and watching television screens inside a private tent at Ellipse Park near the White House on Jan. 6, 2021. The footage was recorded roughly one hour before some supporters started breaking security barriers at the Capitol.

What’s False:
The screens inside the tent did not show supporters breaching or vandalizing the Capitol. Rather, they depicted a crowd gathering in front of a stage where Trump would later speak for 70 minutes. The president reportedly watched the peak of the insurrection on television from inside the White House.

Trump Lied about Kushner’s Security Clearance

January 31: "Trump said he played no role in directing White House officials to arrange for Kushner to receive a top-secret clearance.

Kushner’s application was rejected at least once after concerns were raised by the FBI & CIA about his foreign contacts"

[…] The report of Trump’s order [to Kelly], which the Times said was documented at the time by Kelly in a memo, contradicts statements the president made to [The New York Times] last month in which he claimed he had no role in the reinstatement of his son-in-law’s security clearance. []

Trump’s Biz Fires Its Longtime Undocumented Workers

"Unlike several other golf courses in New York, the Trump Westchester club does not use E-Verify, on online system that allows employers to check with the U.S. government about whether individuals have the right to work in the United States.”

Here's the original Post story: @realdonaldtrump's clubs employed illegal immigrants for years, but began searching them out and firing them during the shutdown. 12 fired at a single NY golf club.

“I started to cry,” said Gabriel Sedano, a former maintenance worker from Mexico who was among those fired. “I told them they needed to consider us. I had worked almost 15 years for them in this club, and I’d given the best of myself to this job.”

Trump and His Campaign’s Contacts with Russians

Looking for one good reason why Trump and his campaign’s contacts with Russians are a counterintelligence nightmare?

How about one hundred?

Russians before the inauguration

Trump, the Conman (1958)

What the fresh hell. This is REAL. Filmed in 1958- about a conman who grifts a small town of suckers into building a wall. History not subtle enough for you? GUESS THE GRIFTER'S NAME
(And watch until the end)

In the comments to this tweet there are assumption, that “Trump” in the movie was a reference to Fred Trump, the father of Donald Trump.

That dude looks like Fred Trump too.
Fred Trump was 53 in 1958.

Fred Trump the slumlord, reviled by many in NYC back then. Woody Guthrie wrote him into a song back in 1950.

Still Life says about this heartwarming still life:

Carl Baum 1812 – 1877

American Still Life (c1848-1852) (AAR Volume 6, Number 2, page 24)

Baum is another American artist whose work resembles Roesen’s. American Still Life has a marble table piled high with an extravagance of fruit. There is also a bird’s nest. The picture is especially full of round fruit – hardly anything is elongated. Even the bunches of grapes make the grapes look fairly rounded, although still oblong. Most of the fruits in the picture are small, on the order of cherries. An orange looks positively huge. Baum also likes reddish fruits.

There is a posterized version (4000 x 5000) of Baum’s still life for your music chamber too.

As for the president’s choice, see: Douglas Wilson: About the Chick on the Piano … (2016-02-29).
