“When America talks about the criminal justice system, the families of incarcerated people are rarely considered or mentioned. When we are, we’re made to feel shame or guilt. But you rarely hear about how the children, parents and siblings of incarcerated people are harmed.”
More than half of imprisoned adults have minor children. And they often suffer trauma, end up in the system, or both.
Oh no a pod of whales washed up in the beach of New Jersey. It must be whales because Chris Christie closed the beaches due to budget dispute. Oh wait, it’s Christie and his family enjoying the beach without any pesky crowds.
At a news conference hours later, Gov. Chris Chris Christie was asked if he got any sun Sunday. “I didn’t,” he said. “I didn’t get any sun today.”
The Trumps are the ultimate grafting con artists, filling their banks with tax payer funds and sale of influence from the White House. These are impeachable offenses, yet the Democrats keep talking about Russia…
“The ways that Jared Kushner “senior adviser to the president,” and Ivanka Trump “assistant to the president,” have already benefited from their links to “Dad” during his short tenure as president stagger the imagination. Ivanka’s company, for instance, won three new trademarks for its products from China on the very day she dined with President Xi Jinping at her father’s Palm Beach club.”
Donald Trump and his family continue to carve out an unprecedented role for themselves as America’s business-managers-in-chief.
“Earlier today in a ballroom of Beijing’s Ritz-Carlton hotel, Jared Kushner’s sister – representing the Kushner-Trump real-estate empire — told rich Chinese that by investing in the family’s latest New Jersey project they could qualify for an “EB-5” investor visa, which allows wealthy foreigners who invest enough in the U.S. to immigrate here.
The visa is popular among rich Chinese eager to get their families and their wealth out of the country. Today’s pitch to the Chinese was “invest early, and you will invest under the old rules,” as one Kushner speaker said.
The tagline on a brochure for the event was: “Invest $500,000 and immigrate to the United States.” “
Representatives from the Kushner family business urged Chinese citizens to consider investing hundreds of thousands of dollars in a New Jersey real estate project.
Do you fish? Swim? Go camping with your family? Would you prefer you and your family drink, bathe, and cook with clean water or you don’t mind a little lead? Are you willing to sacrifice clean water, and our beautiful lakes for wars for oil and a pointless wall?
The other cuts are, in my eyes, equally as terrible if not worse but, unfortunately, most of you could care less if America has homeless women, children and seniors dying in the streets so I decided to stick to talking about how this will affect YOU.
