Walter Cyprus Monday



Jeff Dunhams ‘Walter’ bears a remarkable resemblance to Wilbur “The Cypriot Slickster” Ross

Donald Trump’s commerce secretary, Wilbur Ross, is doing business with Vladimir Putin’s son-in-law through a shipping venture in Russia.

Leaked documents and public filings show Ross holds a stake in a shipping company, Navigator, through a chain of offshore investments. Navigator operates a lucrative partnership with Sibur, a Russian gas company part-owned by Kirill Shamalov, the husband of Putin’s daughter Katerina Tikhonova.

Ross, a billionaire and close friend of Trump, retained holdings in Navigator after taking office this year. The relationship means he stands to benefit from the operations of a Russian company run by Putin’s family and close allies, some of whom are under US sanctions.

Corporate records show Navigator ramped up its relationship with Sibur from 2014, as the US and EU imposed sanctions on Russians. The measures followed Putin’s aggression in eastern Ukraine and annexation of Crimea. Navigator has collected $68m in revenue from its Sibur partnership since 2014.

    A refresher into the dealings with the Russian Oligarchs through the Bank of Cyprus:

      One of my political friends, who turned into a Greenie, voted Green Party, has gone off the rails in my opinion. While she’s still doesn’t think like a a republican she posts more articles hammering the Dems. She also keeps saying everyone needs to quit focusing on Russia, there’s nothing there.

      I point out, how do you know, how does ANYONE know. That’s why we have Mueller investigating. I’ll wait for that outcome before I make any pronouncements.

      He favorite source of info is a site called Popular Resistance.

      It’s funny about the people I’ve met, my political friends. Although they have been on the left there are some who used to vote republican. That ALWAYS shines thru in small ways. The friend I was talking about used to vote republican. I say, uh, huh.

        The Dems deserve to be hammered by REAL progressives. The Dem party has lost its way. I won’t be surprised if Mueller’s team finds evidence to ensnare Dems into the “Russia thing” too. Anyone who thinks the Dems are the white hats, these days, are sadly misinformed.

    Sun shining, only 39° today though. Puddle at the end of the drive, proof of all the rain we’ve been having.

    Pete was just over with a friend’s van to get his old Asteroids arcade machine out of our little barn and over to his house. He’ll be back after he unloads and returns the van. Jill is here, as usual. Hope she can hang around so the three of us can watch a episode of “The Walking Dead.”

    Down to Waddell & Reed to schedule an appointment, 21 minutes, and then across the street to try the new, modern Chinese cuisine, restaurant, the Plum. So 24 minutes so far. And the saffron lemon tea is delicious.
