2 items.

Akbar means "Greates" or "Most Superior", i.e. a superlative.

Ayatollah Khomeini ruled "taqiyyah" haram, forbidden, verboten.

Fred,

It all boils down to one thing -- Did Kushner pass Classified CIA Intelligence to MBS outside of normal Classified Intelligence Channels, or not? MBS is claiming he got his 'stuff ' on his enemies directly from Mr.Jared

j

Oh, and one thing to note. A person died as a result.

Fred

J,

So Kushner's finances don't matter, that is just a prosecutoriral smokescreen being generated on the left. Kushner's IR inexperience doesn't matter. His contact with Russians do not matter. What matters is what the Saudi Crown prince said. You conveniently, again, left out an actual reference to him actually saying anything. Please point me to his public statement, not some horsecrap of an anonymous source.

Fred

Babak,

Thanks for the clarification. There are plenty here in the US who want to selectively make portions of our Constitution forbidden.

Babak Makkinejad

Are they the same crowd that dragged US into the blood and mud of religious war in Islamdom?
Or are they different?

Babak Makkinejad

You do not understand Middle Easterners. Regardless of the truth of the matter, this must be understood as the typical self-aggrandizement of an internally weak man hailing; "Look at me, I am so wealthy/cunning/important to obtain the latest Western product - fast car, fast women, fast jets, fast corvettes, and now intelligence files from the Omnipotent and Omniscient CIA."

Fred

Babak,

I thought you were living in Michigan, if you were you would be glad to know Islam is becoming the official religion of the democratic party.

Babak Makkinejad

It won't be Shia Islam now, would it? The only Thinking Islam there is.

Fred

Babak,

Are Keith Ellison and Louis Farrakhan Shia?

Babak Makkinejad

No. There are Shia in Dearborn, close by, if you be willing.

The facts on Kushner makes him 'desperate' for money....which makes him a risk imo for trading WH policy favors for cash infusions in his business.

However what he may have done wouldn't come under the legal definition of treason.

Jared Kushner bought 666 Fifth with Vornado Realty Trust, CEO Steven Roth.
Roth owns 49%, Kushner owns 51%. The 1.2 billon is due in Feb 2019. Kushner has been selling off their apartments to pay their part of the loan interest.
Vornado was the financially strong partner in the deal and has paid their share on the interest and also wants out of the deal. Roth is offering to sell his share to Kushner but experts think he is doing so to force Kushner to come up with financing for the original deal or force Kushner out and when he cant then snap up the building when it goes into foreclosure at destressed price.

The Kushners don't actually own that much real estate--in all their holdings they have only a 2% to 40%, over half are under 10% stake in each building, the majority stakes owned by other developers.

To add their the desperation they have State of Maryland and State of New York lawsuits against them for rental violation and filing false documents. The NY attorney general and the IRS are also investigating Kushner's 'partners in several projects for possible tax evasion and money laundering---probably prompted by the fact that two known partners (Israeli) have already been charged with money laundering in the US. Kushner also under investigation for misuse of EB5 visas.
In 2015 NY passed a law against 'shell companies' not revealing the actual owners so now investigators and IRS can demand info on buyers and investors.

My information on the Kushners finances and holding has come from the WSJ and Bloomberg who are reliable. Here's an example https://www.bloomberg.com/graphics/2017-kushner-properties-stakes/

All of this is to show that Kushner is walking a tightrope of financial ruin if he cant get the money for 666.
Whether he gets and gives away secret info or not, the question is would he trade policy favors, foreign or domestic, in return for a bailout of his troubles.


Fred

Catherine,

"force Kushner out and when he cant then snap up the building when it goes into foreclosure at destressed price."

I think that's pretty accurate. The States of NY and Maryland became concerned about those rental violations - affecting just which class of tennant? The concern over which arrived right after Trump got elected. That seems no surprise to me given which political party the AG's in those two states are members of.
