Joe Biden's brother and hedge fund manager accused of fraud
[ABCNEWS.GO] A federal lawsuit accuses the brother of former Vice President Joe Foreign Policy Whiz Kid Biden
...The former Senator-for-Life from Delaware, an example of the kind of top-notch Washington intellect to be found in the World's Greatest Deliberative Body...
, hedge fund manager Michael Lewitt and others of attempting to defraud a Tennessee business.

The Knoxville News Sentinel reports that the defendants have until mid-August to respond to the lawsuit filed last month by Michael Frey and Dr. Mohannad Azzam. It says the plaintiffs founded Diverse Medical Management to reform failing rural hospitals, and Jim Biden promised to sell the health care plan to investors.

It says Biden and Lewitt then urged the plaintiffs to borrow $10 million from Lewitt that would be repaid by investors. But the investors never materialized. It says Lewitt then threatened to sue the plaintiffs for not making payments on the borrowed cash. The defendants' attorney, George Mesires, said he had no comment.

Dem Rep. Escobar: Trump ‘Not Welcome’ in El Paso While We’re in Mourning
[BREITBART] Monday on MSNBC’s "Morning Joe," Rep. Veronica Escobar (D-TX) told President Donald Trump
...Oh, noze! Not him!...
he was not "welcome" to visit El Paso, TX, following the shooting by someone who reportedly posted a manifesto online railing against immigrants colonists.

Escobar said it is "probably unfair" to say the Trump rally held in El Paso in February is the cause of the attack, but said the president needs to "do a little self-reflection" on his rhetoric and actions at his rallies.

"It is shocking to me that [Trump] is so utterly self-aware," Escobar lamented. "And this is why from my perspective, he is not welcome here. He should not come here while we are in mourning."

She added, "I would encourage the president’s staff members to have him do a little self-reflection. I would encourage them to show him his own words and his actions at the rallies because we’re not going to get past this until there’s acknowledgment from the very top that we need to heal, that this whole country is hurting, that there has been bigotry and racism and hatred that has been stoked at all levels. And as the president, he has the most significant authority and responsibility to show this country, to lead this country into healing. And now is the time, and he needs to accept responsibility, everyone does, for what has gotten us to this point."

#1  59 shootings in Democrat Chicago, 7 fatalities this weekend. No mourning there, however by the Dems because they really, really don't care after all. All Democrats out of Chicago.

#2  Shootings? Can we possibly just refer to them as ....'sales district coordination measures ?'

#3  ...that there has been bigotry and racism and hatred that has been stoked at all levels.

Nope - it's coming entirely from you cock****ers. What's really happening is Trump complains and criticizes you assholes, and that becomes the story, a.k.a. 'Republicans pounce & seize' Obama perfected this technique early in his first term, and I'm not buying it anymore.

A trait that we like to discourage. Nay, even suppress in our constituents.

#6  Innit funny, the same people who think illegals should be "welcome" here "just because," also think a bona-fide US citizen, the President of the United States, no less, can't go anywhere he wants. FOAD, assh*les, FOAD.

#7  "...now is the time, and he needs to accept responsibility, everyone does, for what has gotten us to this point."

What got us here was you and your colleagues turning away from the consensus that illegal immigration is intolerable.

Your lies and BS, your "sanctuary cities" and "God's children" nonsense gave us over 20 million illiterate third world peasant lawbreakers who have no right whatsoever to even be in this country.

As recently as 2010, even Obama and Clinton were denouncing this madness. Every sentient, honest American sees how self-destructive and utterly insane your preferred policy is.

You people and your mad policy created Trump. You people created the loathing and resentment of freeloading illegals.

Now STFU and do your own "reflecting." Think on your sins.

#8  Fuck off ya commie bastard.

#9  And Trump will supplicate anyway.

I have a dream.

A dream that people on the right will quit worrying about sucking up to people who hate them, and who want them and children destroyed or enslaved.

Maybe someday...

#10  Charger, I've been that way for years. More people on the right would do it if they saw what I see when I let a leftist know their opinion is irrelevant to me: a look of fear that says "He's on to our scam..."

#11  I'm thinking I would be very thankful, IF someone were to THUMP this MORON. I would buy them a BOX of THEIR favorite CANDY, I would!

#12  Trump should be sure to campaign on behalf of Escobar's opponent in the next election.

#21  How many of the victims were Mexican nationals with US EBT cards?

Asking for a taxpayer refund on the unused portion of the cards.
