Trump Admin Official Miles Taylor-Brutal Assault on POTUS Trump, Michelle Obama, Night 1 of Democratic National Convention; plus Manufactured Housing Investing, Stock Updates

DowJones8.18.2020ManufacturedHomeStockUpdatesBroaderMarketSnapshotMiles Taylor used to work as the Chief of Staff to Kirstjen Nielsen in the Department of Homeland Security (DHS). Taylor left DHS and went to work for Google. He has taken a leave of absence from Google between now and November 4, 2020. His purpose? To help take down President Donald J. Trump from a second term in office.

When savvy analysts, reporters, or investigators of all types say “follow the money,” that expression points to a variety of insights that could be considered. But another one that depending on the circumstances is no less valuable is CYA.

It is no surprise that Democrats favor a Democrat, or a Republican favors a Republican. It is also no surprise when some current or former members of a given party may at times attack ‘one of their own,’ and when they do so, there may be selfish as well as selfless reasons.

Taylor is the latest in a steady stream of ‘Trump Administration insiders’ who “blew the whistle,” and perhaps picked up a book deal along with way to make that effort financially worthwhile. The mountain of words and claims stands in stark contrast to the lack of results from those who have said for years that they have “proof” that President Trump did this or that horrific thing.

Here is how Taylor put it on the first night of the Democratic National Convention (DNC).



According to an analysis of White House data, the Google lobbyist with the most White House visits, Johanna Shelton, visited 128 times,” said the left-of-center The Intercept on Apr 22, 2016. That was just one Google lobbyist. The Tech Transparency Project said 4 days later on April 26, 2016 – “Google’s lobbying juggernaut [is] reflected in more than 427 White House Visits during Obama’s presidency…”

The generally more centrist The Hill reported that same 427 visit total, adding that a number of “visits [occurred] during an antitrust probe led by the Federal Trade Commission.” ObamaNation conflict of interest, anyone?

Beyond the cozy relationship between Google and the Obama-Biden administration, there has been months – years, actually – of hits against Google for purported media bias against conservatives on their platform, as well as on YouTube, which their parent company owns both.

There is more further below.
