 Oil Lease Sale epic failure for the Trump administration -

 

"Trump auction of oil leases in Arctic refuge attracts barely any bidders - The lease sales will not cover Republicans’ proposed tax cuts as promised."

 

 

Quote

(TheHill) In mid-November, the Trump administration launched the formal process of selling oil drilling leases in Alaska’s Arctic National Wildlife Refuge.


Every major bank in the U.S. has ruled out financing oil and gas exploration in the Arctic.


With few bids from oil companies, the state of Alaska was forced to lease the lands itself.


It was a grand plan proposed by the Trump administration: auction off drilling rights in the coastal plain of the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge (ANWR), using the money from the leases to pay for proposed tax cuts for corporations. 

 

But after a mad dash to make the sale before President-elect Joe Biden takes office in less than two weeks, the federal government’s efforts fell short. 

 

“This lease sale was an epic failure for the Trump administration and the Alaska congressional delegation,” Adam Kolton, executive director of the Alaska Wilderness League, told The Guardian.

 

“After years of promising a revenue and jobs bonanza they ended up throwing a party for themselves, with the state being one of the only bidders.”

I was wondering what the future would hold for these best people -

 

Quote

 

Forbes magazine’s chief content officer delivered a stark warning to companies that might consider hiring Kayleigh McEnany, Kellyanne Conway, Sarah Huckabee Sanders and other former spokespeople in the Trump White House: Do so and risk losing all credibility given their history of perpetuating “lies-upon-lies, repeated frequently and fervently” on behalf of the president. And what better way to punish those spreaders of untruth than by warning the businesses who hire them in the future?

“Let it be known to the business world: Hire any of Trump’s fellow fabulists above, and Forbes will assume that everything your company or firm talks about is a lie,” Forbes Chief Content Officer Randall Lane wrote in a piece published Thursday. “We’re going to scrutinize, double-check, investigate with the same skepticism we’d approach a Trump tweet. Want to ensure the world’s biggest business media brand approaches you as a potential funnel of disinformation? Then hire away.”

Lane singled out former White House press secretaries and spokespeople such as Kayleigh McEnany, Kellyanne Conway, Sarah Huckabee Sanders and Sean Spicer — noting that they have shirked their duty to tell the truth regardless of how uncomfortable that may be.

It seems the business world is really turning on Trump and his associates. A bit late but hopefully it will make others think twice about following the same path.

Yeah, it's funny what a big impact a little light treason can have on your image, ain't it?

"Trump dropped by biggest lender Deutsche Bank for future business"

 

Quote

FRANKFURT (Reuters) - Deutsche Bank will not do business in the future with U.S. President Donald Trump or his companies in the wake of his supporters’ assault on the U.S. Capitol, the New York Times reported.

 

Deutsche Bank is Trump’s biggest lender, with about $340 million in loans outstanding to the Trump Organization, the president’s umbrella group that is currently overseen by his two sons, according to Trump’s disclosures with the U.S. Office of Government Ethics dated July 31 last year, plus banking sources.

 

The move, reported by the NYT and citing a person familiar with the bank’s thinking, comes as Signature Bank - where Trump’s ethics disclosures show he has checking and money-market accounts - called for him to step down.

 

“The resignation of the president ... is in the best interests of our nation and the American people,” Signature Bank said on its website.

 

Suck it up...

This is starting to turn into a flood. Trump is damaged goods and starting to smell like rotten Brexit fish in a landfill. Most of us got the whiff years ago, but now even big business can't hold it's nose.

Deutsche Bank was happy to fund and enable Trump when it met their needs.  They are complicit in his rise to power.  And now that he’s past his expiration date they are thrilled to have the perfect excuse to swiftly cut him loose.  It’s theater.  They will move on and find another scoundrel to replace him.  That’s what they do.  Nevertheless it’s still delightful those loans of his will be called in.

There are a few people on this forum who become a bit pricklier than usual when someone dares to call the reputation or the derivatives book of Deutsche Bank into question. 

 

There is a whole thread devoted to that bank.    😇

Yeah you're absolutely right of course. They could and should have dropped him a long time ago. At the very latest when he said there was "good and bad on both sides" but probably even before then. It's hard to remember all the disgusting things he's said and done.

Yep, but let's not get side tracked, 5 people are dead and we shouldn't give people another direction to look in while they try to forget that and their support of the supreme satsuma.

I always knew fruit could be dangerous.

 

It's really funny watching Trump supporters and companies that have done business with him jumping ship. He tried to play the political game and lost as the only capital he had was he won the election in 2016.

When he lost the last one he lost his hand, he lost his capital and people are walking away. Either because he is no longer any use to them or they don't want to be dragged in to shit that may be coming for Trump.

 

It's all well deserved and anyone who has stomach ache over his loss, that is also well deserved. You backed a man who caused the death of five people. Be thankful it's just a stomach ache caused by hard cheese, sour grapes and one seriously off orange.

If memory serves, Deutsche Bank jumped ship from him several months ago because they got into trouble for loaning him money because he lied about his worth when asking for loans.

"As many as 20 Senate Republicans are open to convicting the president, the New York Times reports."

 

Quote

 The case will then head for the Senate, where a trial will be held to determine the president's guilt.

A two-thirds majority would be needed to convict Mr Trump, meaning at least 17 Republicans would have to vote for conviction.
