Grifters Gotta Grift: Kushner Edition

“I say, old Bean, have you any Grey Poupon?”

Hey guys, remember the other day when Comrade Stupid pretty much accepted a bribe to remove sanctions on China’s ZTE technology company 72 hours after the Trump Company got an offer to build hotels, golf courses, and condos for some sort of resort, all of which was financed by China?

It looks like Trump’s Fratsputin, Jared Kushner, is getting the hang of the Art of the Deal!

First some background. the Kushner family bought the appropriately named 666 5th Ave property literally as Chimpy’s Economic Disaster was destroying the global economy, and they’ve been leveraged for almost $2B Ameros (due in 2019) ever since. Jared has been trying to find someone to loan him the money, and so far no success! Weird, huh?

The Kushners went so far as to try to get oil-rich Qatar in on the deal and after no deal was forthcoming, and somehow Qatar ended up a Saudi- and U.A.E.-led blockade with the blessings of Prznint Stupid. Odd timing, as Jared was becoming a bro with princes in both those kingdoms, you know, as part of his master plan to bring peace to the middle east.

Fast forward (emphasis mine, but probably not needed):

Charles Kushner . . . is in advanced talks with Brookfield Properties over a partnership to take control of the 41-story aluminum-clad tower 666 Fifth Avenue in Midtown, according to two real-estate executives who have been briefed on the pending deal but are not authorized to discuss it. Brookfield is a publicly traded company, headquartered in Canada, one of whose major investors is the Qatar Investment Authority.

Brookfield has extensive ties to Qatar. The Qatar Investment Authority is the second-largest shareholder in Brookfield Properties, ranking only behind Brookfield’s former parent company. And the Qatar fund and Brookfield have teamed up on several real-estate deals in the United States and elsewhere in recent years, including Brookfield’s retail and apartment complex, Manhattan West, now under construction on the West Side. Brookfield and Qatar also control the Canary Wharf office complex in London.

One wonders if the Fourth Reich will continue the blockade of Qatar, or whether it will suddenly have a ZTE-like change of heart now that Qatar, via the Qatar Investment Authority via Brookfield, has opened the vault to bail out Fratsputin.

Haha, I jest. Of course the support for the blockade will end.

Let’s watch this one for a future Claim Chowder.

    Wasn’t it Qatar that recently clammed up about the whole Russia collusion thing after hinting about having something juicy to tell Mueller? They wanted to nurture “better relations” with the administration so decided to keep their mouths shut. Sounds like another quid meeting another quo in a backroom somewhere or over a back channel. The Trump Crime Family really doesn’t care how obvious all this corruption is because they must believe they’ll always get away with it.

    Bill Maher on one of Jared’s purchases — He bought The New York Observer in 2005, “right as print media was taking off.”

    Jared basically used his position and his Mafioso father-in-law to extort a bailout from Qatar of his stupid 666 investment. The upside is that he will almost certainly be doing prison time for other financial crimes.
