Trump had to be blocked from appointing Ivanka to head up the World Bank

Mod: Poor Vanky. So misunderstood. After all, she does know how to use a debit card, right?

Trump had to be blocked from appointing Ivanka to head up the World Bank (Raw Story link): According to a report from the Intercept's Ryan Grim and Max Ufberg, former Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin was forced to intercede when Donald Trump proposed appointing his daughter Ivanka to head up the World Bank.

The report notes that when the opening came about in January of 2019, Trump saw it as an opportunity to promote his fashion designer daughter.

"As the White House moved to select its new leader, one name very dear to the Trump's heart kept floating around: his daughter Ivanka Trump," the reports states while noting that rumors of the appointment had floated about at the time, with Ivanka demurring and telling reporters she was "happy" advising her dad in the White House.

As the Intercept is now reporting, "...two sources, not authorized to speak publicly, tell The Intercept the talk of Ivanka at the helm went far beyond the realm of Beltway chatter: Trump very much wanted Ivanka as World Bank president, and it was Mnuchin who actually blocked her ascent to the leadership role."

According to Grim and Ufberg, "Mnuchin often placed himself between the president and what the Treasury secretary saw as colossally counterproductive moves. 

His time as a Hollywood producer — making him a representative of the set whose approval Trump craved — gave him influence that others in the administration lacked." The report adds, noting that Ivanka did have a hand in selecting the man who did take the spot, former Under Secretary of the Treasury for International Affairs David Malpass.

  1. Former Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin intervened to block Ivanka Trump's appointment to the World Bank.

    Former President Donald Trump sought to name his daughter, Ivanka Trump, to lead the World Bank in 2019, but then-Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin intervened to block the appointment, according to The Intercept.

    In January 2019, the physician and anthropologist Jim Yong Kim, who had led the World Bank since 2012, announced he would be stepping down from his role the following month, creating a frenzy to fill the coveted position.

    Kim's surprise departure presented then-President Donald Trump with the ability to reshape the leadership of the World Bank, as the international financial organization has traditionally been led by an American citizen.

    1. Well, to be fair, Princess Sparklepony is about as qualified to lead the World Bank as Donald Trump is to be President.

  3. How was this even allowed to be considered?

    Can you imagine if Biden tried to pull something like this?

    1. Biden is no angel either. He has been accused of plagiarism like quoting other people's speeches and writings. The moral of the story is don't be cheap and hire professional speech writers for your political speeches like many other politicians do.

    5. The question you should be asking is why our country is being run by old men in the White House? Is it because there are no middle age high caliber politicians? Perhaps they are too busy running mega-corporations enriching themselves and the one percent.

  5. A little history lesson. When Bill Clinton was elected president, Hillary wanted to be involved with crafting legislation to do with children's health care. Republicans screamed NEPOTISM, told Hillary to stay home and bake cookies, despite the fact she was qualified to be involved with this very important project. NOW, their side took nepotism to the nth degree, yet I didn't hear ANY Republicans grousing about Jared, Ivanka, et al having PROMINENT roles in 45's administration. The fact 45 could even float the idea of putting a neophyte in charge of the World Bank, let alone his daughter, proves they're nothing but HYPOCRITES.

    Indian Removal Act: The Genocide of Native Americans
    Genocide is the systematic destruction of peoples based on ethnicity, religion, nationality, or race. It is the culmination of human rights violations. There are numerous examples of genocide throughout history, some being more infamous than others. For example, Hitler and the Jewish Holocaust is probably the most well-known case of genocide in modern history. There are other cases that are not as well known, especially in our American culture where, historically, we tend to focus on the atrocities of others and ignore our own. One such case is Native American genocide by European colonists, and later, the United States government. The purpose of this blog is to objectively examine a few of cases of genocide against Native American peoples, by European settlers and the United States government, and understand why they occurred.

  8. Court Fights Intensify Over Who Gets To Adopt Native American Children
    The end of the federal Indian Child Welfare Act of 1978 will make it easier for non-Native parents to adopt Native American children.

    For the first time, a few states have sued to overturn the federal Indian Child Welfare Act, which Congress enacted in 1978 as an antidote to entrenched policies of uprooting Native children and assimilating them into mainstream white culture.

    Now, in a country roiled by debates over race and racial identity, there’s a chance the 41-year-old law could be overturned by the U.S. 5th Circuit Court of Appeals, considered the country’s most conservative court. (The law applies to federally recognized tribes.)

    Overturning the law, its proponents say, could significantly increase the number of American Indian children adopted into non-Native families. The 5th Circuit judges heard the case in New Orleans last week but have yet to issue a ruling.

    Hundreds of tribal nations vehemently oppose the lawsuit. They say it threatens the sovereignty of Indian Country and seeks to “return Indian children to the arbitrary and discriminatory whims of state courts and state agencies, unfettered by the centuries-old trust obligations this nation owes to Indian tribes and Indian peoples.”

  10. Former Trump cybersecurity official says GOP leaders have 'lost control' of voter base: 'This is a death spiral'

    Chris Krebs, the first director of the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency who was fired by former President Trump for refuting stolen election claims, said on Sunday that leaders of the Republican Party have "lost control" of the party's voter base.

    While appearing on CBS's "Face the Nation," host Margaret Brennan asked Krebs whether he believes Trump is attempting to undermined future elections, noting that the former president said during a recent rally that he is seeking to completely overhaul the U.S. election system.

    "Without question. It's happening at four different levels, both state legislatures and state elected officials, some of the folks running for secretary of state in Arizona and Georgia. But we're also seeing [it] in the U.S. Congress," said Krebs.

  11. Yeah. That's a lie. Biden did not plagiarize because our unbiased corporate control CNN, MSNBC, Facebook, among others tell us so. That's my Bible for authority of truth. I still believe there's WMD hidden in Iraq. We just need more time to find it.

  12. House Capitol attack panel ready to urge prosecution of Trump aides, says Schiff

    The House select committee investigating the deadly assault on the US Capitol on 6 January is prepared to urge federal prosecution of former aides to Donald Trump who refuse to comply with subpoenas, a key panel member said.

    Former White House chief of staff Mark Meadows, deputy chief of staff Dan Scavino, strategist Steve Bannon and Pentagon aide Kash Patel are defying subpoenas for documents and testimony, under instruction from the former president.

    Amid fears that the panel will not take legal action to enforce its will, Adam Schiff, a member of the panel as well as chairman of the House intelligence committee, spoke to CBS’s Face the Nation on Sunday.

    The 6 January committee, he said, “wants to make sure that these witnesses come in and testify, and we are prepared to go forward and urge the justice department to criminally prosecute anyone who does not do their lawful duty”.

  13. This explains Trump's constant fire hose of chaos.

    The GOP is reported to be 25 percent of the electorate.

    Trump's share of GOP voters is said to be 44 percent.

    This means that he only controls roughly 10 percent of the electorate!

    There is zero way he can win a presidential election with 10 percent in his bag.

    The constant chaos from him is meant to obfuscate, confuse, to make him seem larger than he is.

    And to conceal the facts so that cheating/stealing will produce numbers that seem normal.

    He's a loser. 10 percent of the electorate in his pocket? He's a loser.

    A blowhard.

  14. Black Children Were Jailed for a Crime That Doesn’t Exist. Almost Nothing Happened to the Adults in Charge.
    For this story we interviewed dozens of people, including children arrested in the April 2016 case and their parents. We interviewed, for the first time, the kids (now adults) whose cases launched class-action lawsuits against the county over its illegal detention practices and use of solitary confinement. We obtained thousands of pages of documents through 56 records requests to city, county and state agencies. We obtained more than a dozen personnel files and reviewed court records in seven federal lawsuits.

  15. republicans are self-centered ego freaks.

    Fiona Hill, a nobody to Trump and Putin, saw into them both.

    Fluent in Russian, she often carefully took in the conversations of men who seemed to forget she was there and wrote it all down later, she recalled in an Associated Press interview. “Hey, if I was a guy, you wouldn’t be talking like this in front of me,” she remembered thinking. “But go ahead. I’m listening.”

    Hill expected not to be similarly invisible when she later went to work for another world leader, Donald Trump, as his Russia adviser in the White House. She could see inside Putin’s head, had co-written an acclaimed book about him, but Trump did not want her counsel, either. He ignored her in meeting after meeting, once mistaking her for a secretary and calling her “darlin.”

  17. This goes for Glendora, Ca. also.
    I refused to lie under oath for the state of Arizona, and the courts aren't on my side.

    When a witness testifies in court, they take an oath to tell "the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth.” Laws also prevent a witness from being persuaded to give inaccurate testimony or commit perjury. Arizona, for example, makes it a felony to attempt to “influence” the testimony of a witness.

    As I found out, however, if you work for the government, your superiors can't be held financially responsible for ordering you to change your testimony and retaliating against you when you refuse.

    I worked as a forensic scientist for nearly 40 years in a variety of agencies and medical laboratories, including the Arizona Department of Public Safety, Scientific Analysis Bureau, which I ended up suing.
