Monday.

Good Morning. Since I am sure it will be a slow news week, I draw your attention to an amazing investigative piece from Washinton Post writer, David Farenthold. It's dense and long, but it starts to connect a lot of dots of the resident of the White House and his shady ways with money. These cash transactions scream of Money Laundering, IMO, and we will get the truth one day.

In other news, where in the world will Rudy show up today?

Buckle up for safety!

and

Raine

Morning

Mornin' all..

So the minor leak that I have under my kitchen sink turned out to be the Scituate Reservoir. I spent all weekend mopping it up, cleaning out the mold & other shit that had taken residence under there, then washed the kitchen floor & half the wood flooring in the common room of my apartment.

The wash water from cleaning the floor leaked from the sink drain pipe (I think?), refilling the lake. I laid out another whole roll of paper towels to soak it up before I left for work.

water leaks are the worst, for the very reasons you mentioned

NEW RANDY RAINBOW!

You heard that former Secretary John Kerry has been working on "shadow diplomacy" with Iran? He's been in touch with his former contacts over there, trying to work a back-door deal so the nuclear agreement doesn't collapse entirely. Maybe this is the fruit?

Iran deals, trade deals... tRump is isolating himself (and by extension - us) into irrelevancy on the world stage.

Grunt.

Speaking of money laundering, Who knew that Trump was backing a human cockfighting* league that featured Putin's favorit MMA fighter?

Even Donald Trump Jr. was touting MMA, a sport John McCain once called “human cockfighting.” Trump Jr. told Men’s Fitness the Trump Organization was investing money in Affliction, not just providing name recognition. “We’re obviously a very cash-rich company,” he said. “So we can come into something to make sure it’s done appropriately. Depending on how everything goes, if we have to put in more, we’ll put in more.”



*HT to John McCain for the best description of MMA ever.

An interview with David A. Fahrenthold.

What do you think are the biggest unanswered questions about your story?

I guess two things. One would be: Have I seen the whole universe? Are there other all-cash transactions out there that I haven’t found. And No. 2 is: What was their cash flow? Eric Trump has said that their existing properties were throwing off so much money that it wasn’t a big deal to dip into them to buy an $80 million golf course, in the case of Turnberry [in Scotland]. Nothing that I have seen from the outside indicates that they have that level of liquidity, but I haven’t seen very much from the outside. The next question is about the sources of their cash flow from this period, and where their cash was coming from. That would help us understand a little bit more the context around Eric’s explanation.

Just heard that the NRA's board has chosen Oliver North to be its new President.

I guess now that's it's proven that they're a lobbying arm for traitors & foreign interests, you might as well have a figurehead that fits the same mold.

If I recall, that is largely a ceremonial gig. The real power is whatever Wayne LaPierre's title is.

For months, a persistent rumor has floated around Washington that Melania doesn’t really live in the White House and stays in a house with her parents and Barron near his suburban Washington school.

“It’s 1,000 percent false. We laugh at it all the time,” Grisham said.

“It’s an urban legend,” said Rickie Niceta Lloyd, the White House social secretary.

Melania is exceedingly close to her parents and her son, Barron, who also speaks Slovenian with his grandparents. When she is out of the public eye, she is often with her family, friends say.

Her office declined to say where her parents live, or even whether they keep a room at the White House, as Michelle Obama’s mother did.



This is interesting.

The whole Iran-Contra scandal was a giant shit on the Constitution. I wonder if Nixon was prosecuted instead of pardoned for Watergate, would we ever had gotten the criminal activity or even the administrations of Reagan, the two Bushes, and Trump.

I'm sorry, what is this "Be Best" initiative thing? Were there any details from Melania or just a photo op for the angry orange?
