    US banks stopped lending him money because he had shown he wouldn't pay them back. 

    So he filed fraudulent paperwork with DeutchBank. And had the Russians help him out.

    I recently caught this intriguing interview on NPR with Tom Burgis, author of "Kleptopia: How Dirty Money Is Conquering the World":

    I just thought of something: Recently Scaramucci stated in a tweet that there are people inside Trump's campaign who don't want to see him re-elected. Maybe this was not an accident, but deliberate sabotage.

    A federal court on Thursday rejected President Trump’s order to exclude unauthorized immigrants from population counts that will be used next year to reallocate seats in the House of Representatives, ruling that it was so obviously illegal that a lawsuit challenging the order need not go to a trial.

    Some people have even compared it to a religion; it has a savior figure (Trump), prophetic scripture, what they have dubbed a “Great Awakening” (an acknowledgment by the mainstream that what they believe is true), and many followers refer to Q as a saint. “It is also already much more than a loose collection of conspiracy-minded chat-room inhabitants,” Adrienne LaFrance writes in the Atlantic. “It is a movement united in mass rejection of reason, objectivity, and other Enlightenment values. … To look at QAnon is to see not just a conspiracy theory but the birth of a new religion.”
