This might be fun:

 

 

Wonder how the so called "pro-life" (but don't care after they're born) brigade will rationalise that.

Bombarded with fake news etc - here's my attempt at a TLDR:

 

 

That's Elliott Broidy on the left, Shera Bechard in the middle. Donald J Trump on the right.

 

Broidy is/was a huge GOP fundraiser, and it could be said, a bit of a crook. Supposedly he had an affair with Bechard, and she "fell" pregnant and wanted to keep the child - ooops.

 

Trump's lawyer. Michael Cohen, only had 3 Clients.  They are Donald J Trump, Donald's faux-news merchant and very close friend Sean Hannity (as a favour), and Elliott Broidy (only once).

 

Cohen negotiated a settlement with Bechard's lawyer Keith Davidson, for payments totalling $1.6 million, rumour has it that she had an abortion, signed an NDA - problem over...

 

Except Broidy stopped making payments.

 

So, a few weeks ago, Bechard launched a lawsuit against him, against her ex lawyer Davidson, and against Avenatti.  Davidson had also been "Stormy Daniels'" lawyer before Avenatti, she included Avenatti in the suit because she claimed that Avenatti had been given privileged information about her case by Davidson.

 

As for the supposed affair with Broidy - the picture above is kind of flattering - he's smiling.  Here's a more recent shot of him:

 

 

He had an "affair" with Bechard?  ROFL.  No he didn't - not for all the tea in Cuba he didn't.

 

Problem with crooks is you can't really trust them.  

 

Broidy is "happily" married - here he is with his wife.  AFAIK she's a strong, successful person - I'm not criticising her in any way.

 

 

Of course rumours got out so that "everybody knew" that her husband had got a playmate pregnant, the $1.6 million, NDA etc.
Try and explain your way out of that one.  "Wasn't me" seems like the only option. Oops - what about the payments? 

 

Good luck boys.  Cohen once said he'd take a bullet for Trump.  That seems to be over.

 

Join a few dots and figure it out - who really had the "affair" with Bechard?

 

Expect distractions from the WH.  I don't think this story is going away.

Article in The Daily Beast:

 

American Racists Look for Allies in Russia

 

Keep reading - it's not just American racists, and they aren't just looking in Russia.  Here too.

"This guy knows where all the financial bodies are buried"!

 

Allen Weisselberg, who served as President Trump’s gatekeeper and financial guru for decades, has been subpoenaed to testify before a federal grand jury as part of the investigation into former Trump “fixer” Michael Cohen, a report on Thursday said.

Michael Cohen claims Trump knew of Trump Tower meeting

"sources are saying that Michael Cohen claims that then-candidate Donald knew in advanced that the June 26th meeting in Trump Tower in which Russians were expected to offer his campaign dirt on Hillary Clinton.

Crucially these sources are saying the Michael Cohen is willing to make that assertion to the special council Robert Mueller..."

Wow! At last, something that may pin that bugger down. Something that can't be squirmed out of, or explained away by Ms Sanders. I hope and hope this is really it. I am strongly reminded of Nixon's fall, which I also lived through. Let the world lick its wounds, put the rocks back over alt-right, and move on to a wonderful new Age of  Aquarius!

In his address to the convention in Kansas City, Trump defended his decision to slap tariffs on the U.S.’s trading partners. As Trump told the crowd that “it’s all working out,”

 

 

What you’re seeing and what you’re reading is not what’s happening” Trump said.

 

 

 

The party told you to reject the evidence of your eyes and ears. It was their final, most essential command.

"1984" was not supposed to be an instruction manual ...   undecided

Don't worry. Trump never reads anything longer than a paragraph that does not have his name in it.

 I hope - there must be enough Republicans with a spine to put country ahead of their own ambition

 

 

Not effing likely.

 

Evangelists are so silent on his affairs that they'll just STFU..

 

 

 

Then there's https://twitter.com/ShaunKing/status/1022189305563774976

 

 

 

They've emboldened the racist masses.. Once that genie is out of the bottle, it'll take a miracle (or revolution) to go back.. MLKjr is dead, so there's the miracle gone.

 

There's some hope that they won't keep going down the "make millionaires billionaires again" route come november, but young people don't care about voting, and racist people do.

 

 

 

And seriously, who do the Dems even have any more? Bernie was far too left for the  US... Women.. pfft.. Rednecks can't have THAT!

 

Black people, Hispanics... HELL NO!!! WHITES WILL NOT HAVE!

 

 

 

Face it.. they're effed, and they'll take the economy with them for at least 2 more years.

 

Not that I'm negative at all... :D

 

Quick EDIT: You have to remember the only news his supporters watch is the same news he watches... They all think everything is roses, and the smell of sh*t on those roses is just "left wing" fertiliser.

What's worse, this guy (Jeffrey Whitman) will hate black people even more because his business will go down, starting with people who called him - and with BBB who is suspending their accreditation. So if he was a racist before (and apparently he was), he will feel even more that he is on the right.

Exactly... It's getting stupid.

 

 

 

And not just the US.

 

Australian Govt is trying the same BS with their "Melbourne gangs" BS.

 

It creates a racial divide that gets them re-elected because of fake fear. And Fairfax/Nine AND Murdoch have been pushing it in Aussie for years..

 

Wait until it comes to NZ with their new ownership. It will start quietly, maybe some Indians or samoans, then you'll have boats of tongans being "turned back" depending on your island jail of choice. 

 

 

 

 

 

Edit: I hate  saying it, but because you can see it happening in the US, and the UK, and parts of Europe.... We're all next..

 

I know NZ thinks Oz is racist, and some parts are, And some of NZ is too (even if you don't like hearing that), but it's going to get worse. And where are we ALL going to end up then?
