Guess Who Is the Keynote Speaker at the Cayman Islands Alternative Investment Summit (Hint: It Is George W. Bush)

News

How NICE that Dubya can take some time off to get away from whatever the hell it is he does these days to address a bunch of Job Creators in a quiet room in the Cayman Islands. What is the Cayman Islands Investment Summit, you might be wondering? It is exactly what you think it is, plus tennis.


The Cayman Island Alternative Investment Summit, for those of you who are not familiar, will be held in a nice resort in the Cayman Islands in conjunction with a fancy tennis event, and will be a huge circle jerk for Job Creators wherein they can talk about tax avoidance strategies. Or, as they put it,

The Cayman Islands Alternative Investment Summit is an international conference that will bring together the world's leading institutional investors, fund managers, academics, economists and regulators in the Cayman Islands - the world's leading domicile for investment funds - to discuss and debate the fundamentals of a vibrant future for the alternative investments industry.

Yes, if we wanted to host an intelligent and nuanced debate about a complex topic, George W. Bush would certainly be one of our first choices too.  The “key theme” of the summit is ‘Innovation in Alternative Investments: Seeing What’s Next’. (Hint: avoiding taxes, probably.) Sadly, Mitt is too busy campaigning for president to visit the millions of dollars he stashes there (not to avoid taxes, of course) but maybe he can sent it a message via GW?

The Cayman Alternative Investment Summit is an opportunity for the industry’s elite to take an introspective look at itself, seeing where the industry has been and predicting where it will go in the future,” said Anthony Cowell, Partner in Alternative Investments at KPMG in the Cayman Islands and Editorial Chair. “KPMG is proud to be at the centre of the event and looks forward to the stimulating and thought provoking debate, set against the backdrop of the domicile of choice for alternative investments.

This all makes perfect sense.  Who doesn't immediately conjure up visions of tennis, a seaside resort, and George W. Bush when they think of "stimulating and thought provoking debate"?

Wednesday, during Sarah Huckabee Sanders's first public explosion of lies in 16 days, she gave a very unclear answer to a question from the New York Times's Maggie Haberman, which was "ARE YOU FUCKING KIDDING ME RIGHT NOW?" Specifically the question was about Russian reports that Putin's rogue shithole state would like to question/detain 11 Americans for their supposed "crimes" against Russia, in exchange for Russia's cooperation in letting Robert Mueller interrogate the Russian military intelligence officials he indicted last week for hacking our 2016 election. Putin's list of pals he would like to have for a chat starts with businessman Bill Browder, who used to be Russia's biggest foreign investor, who is actually a British citizen (LOL Russia is stupid), and who is Vladimir Putin's arch-enemy because Browder and his Russian accountant Sergei Magnitsky (whom Putin later had killed in jail) exposed massive Russian government corruption that led to the creation of "Magnitsky Acts" all over the world that sanction the ever-loving fuck out of Putin and his buddies.

Getting rid of the Magnitsky Act is Putin's number one foreign policy priority, so it's probably safe to say it's high on Donald Trump's list too. Indeed, during Trump's shameful press conference with Putin, Trump said Putin had made an "incredible offer" during their private meeting, and it was MOAR PEE HOOKERS! for the quid pro quo we described above. How sweet of Trump's KGB boss to offer to make such an Art Of The Deal with him!

In an impressive display of fiscal restraint, House Republicans yesterday refused to fund security for election systems before this fall's midterms, because ... well, not sure, really. (Just kidding. We know why and you know why and they know you know and we know why!)
