Trump Has Now Moved $2.3 Million Of Campaign-Donor Money Into His Private Business (Forbes)

Sorry if repost, article from yesterday ... I didn't see it posted, so ...

https://www.forbes.com/sites/danalexander/2020/08/25/trump-has-now-moved-23-million-of-campaign-donor-money-into-his-private-business/amp/

The richest president in American history, who has yet to donate to his 2020 campaign, has now moved $2.3 million of contributions from other people into his private companies.

The most recent expenses look familiar. The president accepted $38,000 in rent last month through Trump Tower Commercial LLC, the entity that owns his Fifth Avenue skyscraper. Since Trump took office, his campaign has paid that company $1.5 million, more than any other property in the Trump empire, according to an analysis of federal filings. The Republican National Committee also coordinated with the campaign to pay Trump Tower Commercial LLC an additional $225,000.

Trump got another $8,000 in July via the Trump Corporation, a management company that he owns. The precise reason for those payments is unclear. Campaign filings describe the rationale as “legal & IT consulting” but it’s still a mystery why Trump’s management company is providing such services. The Trump Corporation has now taken in $281,000 from the campaign since the president entered the Oval Office.

lucinda williams - lake charles (studio-1998) okay it's not a real happy song, but ...

it's one of my favorite songs in the whole world, off of one of my desert island discs ...

wishing safety to all the folks!

conor oberst, first aid kit, taylor from dawes - lua (creekside-2014) this song

is like a gut-punch to me ... just phenomenal songwriting ...

i like how all the idiots jabbering in the background at first eventually stfu and gather round for the awesomeness. though I wish they'd been quiet the whole time lol ...



and the original ...



I know that it is freezing
But I think we have to walk
Keep waving at the taxis
They keep turning their lights off
But Julie knows a party at some actor's Westside loft
Supplies are endless in the evening
By the morning they'll be gone

And everything is lonely
I can be my own best friend
I get a coffee and the paper
Have my own conversations
With the sidewalk and the pigeons
And my window reflection
The mask I polish in the evening
By the morning looks like shit

And I know you have a heavy heart
I can feel it when we kiss
So many men stronger than me
Have thrown their backs out trying to lift it
But me, I'm not a gamble
You can count on me to split
The love I sell you in the evening
By the morning won't exist

You looking skinny like a model
With your eyes all painted black
Just keep going to the bathroom
Always say you'll be right back
Well, it takes one to know one kid
I think you've got it bad
But what's so easy in the evening
By the morning's such a drag

I've got a flask inside my pocket
We can share it on the train
And if you promise to stay conscious
I'll try to do the same
Well, we might die from medication
But we sure killed all the pain
What was normal in the evening
By the morning seems insane

And I'm not sure what the trouble was
That started all of this
The reasons all have run away
But the feeling never did
It's not something I would recommend
But it is one way to live
'Cause what is simple in the moonlight
By the morning never is

It was simple in the moonlight
Now it's so complicated
It was simple in the moonlight
So simple in the moonlight
So simple in the moonlight

bright eyes - mariana trench (studio-last week) first new album in 10 years, and it's awesome!



On this KILLER Colbert performance, he's got Lucius on backing vocals, the same awesome ladies you see in the latest roger waters home videos ...

justin townes earle - far from me (studio-2010) a cover of a john prine classic

seemed appropriate ...

this whole prine tribute album is very cool, btw ... avett bros, o.c.m.s., drive-by truckers, josh ritter, my morning jacket, conor oberst, justin vernon (bon iver), etc ... kickass lineup.

justin townes earle - yuma (studio-2007) his first single, it was about dying too young ...



justin townes earle - harlem river blues (on letterman - 2011) jason isbell on lead axe

So good ...



justin townes earle - far away in another town (studio-2008) - this one seems appropriate

Maybe my fave song of his ... it's brought tears in my eyes a number of times over the years. Now it's even sadder.

Man I'm super-bummed ... such a talented young man, gone way too soon.

Steve must be devastated.

maggie rogers - light on (studio - 2019) quite different from her acoustic DNC track
