As it turns out Donald Trump stands to benefit financially from launching missiles at Syria. Well of course he does.

Courtesy of CNN: 

Raytheon, the company that makes the Tomahawk missiles used in the air strikes on Syria by the United States, is rising in early stock trading Friday. 

Investors seem to be betting President Trump's decision to retaliate against Syria after the chemical attack on Syrian citizens earlier this week may mean the Pentagon will need more Tomahawks. 

The Department of Defense asked for $2 billion over five years to buy 4,000 Tomahawks for the U.S. Navy in its fiscal 2017 budget last February. 

Nearly five dozen Tomahawk cruise missiles were launched at military bases in Syria from U.S. warships in the Mediterranean Sea late Thursday.

Why does this matter to Trump you might ask?

Because of course he owns stock in Raytheon. And don't you feel silly for asking?

Courtesy of Business Insider:

Donald Trump's personal financial disclosure report, which was filed as part of his presidential campaign on Wednesday, contains fairly detailed information about what's in his stock portfolio.

According to the report, Trump's investments cross a wide spectrum of industries, with technology companies, financial firms, defense contractors, and energy are all represented in his portfolio. Trump also owns stock in many well-known companies including Apple, Nike, Whole Foods, Google, Philip Morris, Raytheon, Facebook, and Morgan Stanley, among others.

In other words Raytheon's stock goes up, Donald Trump gets just a little bit richer.

So not only did Trump gain politically from the attack, with plenty of pundits now calling him "presidential," but he also made his wallet just a little bit thicker.

And the best part? Well the best part is that if didn't even do anything to protect the people of Syria.
You know most of my nightmares only last the one night. But this one just goes on, and on, and on, and on, and on, and............

    I have felt slimed since November 7th election night and now it is hardening -- no relief in sight. Congress in recess, again.

    Nothing "presidential" about his action!!!!! Shame on MSM -- fooled again! Nothing fucking changes.

    Still, we must press on... things don't happen overnight.

      Thank you, I feel the same, but when you have a controlled media owned a select few corporations......

      I'm not surprised at the disclosure. You can bet there is more to disclose. Now I know who and what to adjust next week. Boycott, cancel, remove, repeal, replace everything associated. Complain, cancel, pull out and stop service to everything associated. Join, donate and push anything and against everything about this nasty pussy lying bunch of ulgy dickhead crooks to start next week off on right track. Protest, comment, speak out and never quit complaining until the next dickhead disclosure report. Yep. Never will accept this pussy of a dickhead as my president nor his lying staff of publicly rejected asswipes that he uses.

    50 plus missiles (let's say at least a cool 50 million dollars) to scratch some pre-arranged concrete 'targets' and to score some Ego-Points for The Donald ... how many (Syrian) refugees can you help with that kind of money? Or Americans?

      With all those babies and baby mamas to pay for he better be a hard ass worker like the rest of the Palins!

    3. Anonymous7:37 PM

      Is Track still living at the compound? I thought Sarah bought him a house. Is his Mama his income? You know if he can be declared mentally impaired he and his kids could get social security if he is deemed mentally ill and by the looks of it he is.

      My sisters ex was living on social security and her two kids got money because he could not work. That was many years ago so the current status of this i don't know.

      Can you see Sarah admitting her kid is mentally ill and needs help? She will support him the rest of his life and she should because she ignored his problems for years when she had the power to actually get him the best care she was too busy being "Sarah". Her most important job she had of being a mother she screwed for her own ego.That is a loser in my opinion i don't care how much she thinks she has won her family is a mess.

      We all would have admired her if she was real and spoke about the hardships of having a Down Syndrome child but that is not her reality because it never stopped her from doing whatever she wanted.Instead she wanted to paint rainbows.Trig is severely handicapped and will never be able to hold any kind of job. She never addreses the problems of the average person who has a child like Trig because she has money and never seems to worry about it.She lives in La La Land.

    Just wait until the rethugs have to come up with the money to keep the government from shutting down.

    they could start by eliminating the outrageous security bills for trump et al.

    It's just a dick contest. Trump trying to prove he still has one and trying to look tough.

    I am so sick of war games being played with no thought to the long term outcome and how much and how far are we willing to go but that would require a long term plan, a phase two or three or more.

    You do not rule on emotion this is an age
    where when we have nuclear weapons. Trump you old fart get real. You can't afford to just strike because you are mad or want to look tough.War has changed. Special Forces are more important now.

    This asshole is too dumb to have this much power he did not ask Congress for permission. All this did is make us look like idiots we strike an airfield and they still use it. They have five airfields. You either destroy all of them or wait for allies to come together with a plan. This is just dick waving pure and simple.

    1. Anonymous7:47 PM

      And a very stupid military that can't hit a target.

    2. Anonymous1:29 AM

      The airstrikes hit what they were supposed to.
      The airbase was never meant to be shut down permanently. To shut down an airbase, the airstrip must be permanently disabled, i.e., blown to bits.
      It wasn't. An air raid over the city of Homs took place right after the airbase was hit.
      It's all going according to plan. Pootie gets to keep an operable airbase in Syria open, and his puppet donnie gets to make the case that he and Pootie are on the outs now.

    I just looked up Palin's net worth. Twelve million dollars so i guess she can afford to give Barstool three hundred and fifty thousand for her down payment on her Texas house. She can support Track and Trig for the rest of their lives. And pay for their cabins but it's not the money with her so much as it's about she has faded from the spotlight and it burns her butt.There is nothing she likes more than a camera in her face and the beauty of it is her own family brought her down, drunken brawls, woman beater son and all the while trying to live on the image of some kind of perfect family. Even Barstool had to settle for a dough boy who likes his jack and coke and is not adverse to riding on his Medal Of Honor to try to make a buck.Humility is a nasty word in Plain land.

      I heard one time that Dakota was adopted and was raised by a nice honest family in Kentucky. And when the null and arranged moot marriage suddenly stopped on site many relatives of the Dakotas tried to help him out of the mess of lies. They warned him, scolded him, alarmed him and cried. But sadly he gave into the tempted hell of nasty pussy and his medal of honor was broken in the tangled web of dirty lies and flies.

      1052 yea with ya on that one!

  9. The question is...did he buy MORE stock right before he gave the order?

    Is he buying more stock in companies that his budget and policies will benefit from?

    He's basically benefiting financially from the office; he's making money by being president. This is illegal. It is unconstitutional. This is what the emoluments clause is all about.

    Forget fucking Russia. He should be impeached for violating his oath of office by using it for personal profit.

    1. Anonymous11:51 PM

      His violations run and go as deep as the core of the fracked up earth. The oath and paper that he put his claw on means nothing to him. A demon has no soul. He exist to hate and destroy everything good. His mission is to bomb bomb away using everyone's hard earned money given to him by forced tax laws created by citizen united to tax unrepresented poor people in America so that they can profit and pay to rape and plunder more and more and more and more.
