Alabama Crimson Tide ‘cursed’ by Trump after another loss

The Alabama Crimson Tide lost to the Auburn Tigers. The loss came three weeks after Alabama fans cheered Donald Trump — and lost their first home game in four years to LSU. With the loss at home, the Crimson Tide ended a 31-game streak. For fans, this was the first sign of the "Trump Curse." Trump was once again ridiculed after Alabama’s second loss.

The curse is said to have affected the outcome of the World Series. When Trump appeared at Game 5, he was met with boos from Washington Nationals fans. They would go on to win the World Series.
The saying goes “Everything Trump Touches Dies” — #ETTD.
If Alabama misses the playoffs, would this be the fault of Trump? In the eyes of fans, absolutely. It remains to be seen who will next mess with the "Trump Curse."

The SIM swap fraud

SIM swap fraud is a relatively new, sophisticated form of fraud that allows hackers to gain access to bank accounts, credit card numbers, and other personal data.

A cellphone SIM card stores user data in GSM phones. They’re used for authentication — without a SIM card, GSM phones can't tap into a mobile network. A reliance on phone-based authentication has made SIM swapping an increasingly lucrative crime.
SIM criminals case their targets carefully before an attack. They call the victim’s cellphone provider and claim the SIM card has been lost or damaged. Then they ask customer service to activate a SIM card or number in their possession. With unfettered access to a victim’s phone number, criminals then target bank accounts and credit cards. The crime has more than tripled in the US since 2013.

All roads lead to Rudy

Lev Parnas became "good friends" with Rudy Giuliani after the 2016 election. Parnas and Fruman controlled Global Energy Producers, which agitated against U.S. Ambassador to Ukraine Marie Yovanovitch.

They're accused of entering into "secret agreements" to launder foreign money into the campaigns through various corporate identities, and using "straw donors" to make the contributions. They used wire transfers from shell corporations to illegally funnel $325k in foreign “straw money” to the pro-Trump super PAC America First Action committee in 2018.
The friendship was lucrative for Giuliani, who received $500k from Parnas' company Fraud Guarantee. Federal prosecutors say they raised money for the failed campaign of Rep. Pete Sessions-R in 2018.

Parnas and Fruman helped connect Giuliani with the hugely corrupt Viktor Shokin, who claims he was fired for investigating Burisma.

Former U.S. Rep. Pete Sessions announces his candidacy Oct. 3, 2019.
Giuliani has strong ties to Turkey and represented Reza Zarrab, who was jailed in March 2016 on money laundering charges. Mueller was investigating a meeting where Michael Flynn—shortly before he became national security adviser—was offered upward of $15m if he helped Turkey obtain extradition of cleric Fethullah Gülen and the release of Zarrab.Flynn’s sentencing hearing for lying to FBI agents had been scheduled for Dec. 18.
Rudy Giuliani is widely expected to be charged with half a dozen crimes, including conspiracy.

Giuliani fears no buses - "RICO chart"

Rudy Giuliani lashed out at prosecutors as “liars” who are harming America after TMZ caught up with him in an airport. Asked if he was worried about going to jail, he paused.
“the people pursuing me are desperate, sad, angry, disappointing liars and they’re hurting their country.”

Giuliani freaks out at CNN’s ‘trickery’ after it accurately quotes him
Giuliani blew up at a CNN reporter after being quoted accurately. “I didn’t mislead you, I told you my state of mind at the time ..." The controversy revolves around Giuliani's ties to Dmitry Firtash. Giuliani told CNN last month that he never sought information from Firtash and never met him. “I have nothing to do with Firtash.”

But in an interview with the New York Times this week, Giuliani admitted that he met with a member of Firtash’s legal team. CNN asked Giuliani about the discrepancy and he accused the network of “trickery” and said that its reporting was “horseshit.”
Trump yesterday distanced himself from Giuliani, saying he knew nothing about what he was doing in Ukraine. This is a direct contradiction to his call to Zelinsky and the many witnesses who have testified.

Many are seeing Trump's turncoat statement as the inevitable throwing of Rudy under a bus, something a growing number of Republicans are demanding for their own survival.
It is being reported that Giuliani targeted and engaged in a war to remove Zelensky's chief of staff Andriy Bohdan. Bohdan is closely associated with oligarch Ihor Kolomoisky.

Cops land 3 HA bikies in Pattaya, Thailand

Cops found 1.1kg of meth, a gun, mobile phones, and £25k in the busts. The three Aussies are connected to the Hells Angels. Cops are now hunting for Christopher Depp, a Brit they say is the leader of the operation.
The three men arrested are Tihomer Stojic, 47, Jamie Hansom, 46, and Steven Hovi, 58. A Nigerian man and two local Thai women were also taken into custody.

"I want Nothing" call of Sept 9 didn't happen

Trump has been regularly invoking Sondland’s testimony at rallies and press events, claiming that Sondland’s description of the “no quid pro” call completely exonerates him. In the middle of Sondland’s public testimony, Trump made a loud public appearance on the White House lawn, a portion of Sondland’s paraphrased testimony in hand, to perform a dramatic reenactment of the call for cameras.

It was all theater for the obtuse - the call never happened and there is no WH record of it. ONE call occurred and it took place on September 7th.

When asked to confirm that this call had taken place on September 9th instead, Sondland repeatedly invoked his lack of access to records to explain his inability to either say or remember. Most would be suspecting Sondland has perjured himself.

Trump insults military - Eddie Gallagher

Eddie Gallagher was convicted of posing gleefully for a photo with the boy's corpse. Fired Secretary of the Navy Richard Spencer describes the degree to which Trump involved himself in the case of Eddie Gallagher, a Navy SEAL acquitted of stabbing an ISIS captive/boy to death.
Donald Trump called Navy SEAL Eddie Gallagher "one of our ultimate fighters." "I have to protect my warfighters."

"Torture works," Trump said at a campaign event in South Carolina in 2017. "Half these guys [say]: 'Torture doesn't work.' Believe me, it works."
American soldiers must have standards. The idea of a moral code which American troops are governed by is foreign to Trump.

Joe Adonis - Giuseppe Antonio Doto

The article was buried in the back pages of the New York Times on December 7, 1971, Page 93. "Giuseppe Antonio Doto, known in life as Joe Adonis, was buried here today, accompanied to the wind‐chilled Madonna Roman Catholic Cemetery by members of his immediate family. Conspicuously absent were Adonis's former colleagues from a much larger, Mafia family."

It was an anonymous end for a man who was once one of the city's most powerful gangsters. In 1915 Giuseppe Antonio Doto boarded an ocean liner docked in Naples on its way to the US. He hopped off in Brooklyn, where his cousin was a Vito Genovese family capo. Adonis joined a gang of street toughs who would later become major mobsters, including Lucky Luciano.
In 1951 Adonis was indicted for illegal gambling and sentenced to two years. In April of 1931 Adonis, Bugsy Siegel, Vito Genovese and Albert Anastasia killed Brooklyn mob boss Giuseppe Masseria. The September 10, 1931 murder of Boss Salvatore Maranano solidified Luciano's power. Luciano established the National Crime Syndicate. Adonis received a seat on the Syndicate and oversaw 'Murder Inc.'
On August 6, 1953, at a hearing in Adonis's prison, the US Department of Justice ordered Adonis's deportation to Italy. In 1971, during an anti-Mafia operation, Italian police took in Adonis for questioning. As he was being interrogated he suffered a massive heart attack and died. His body was flown back to the US and he was buried in a cemetery at Fort Lee, NJ.

Leonard ‘Len’ Blavatnik donated $800k to Lindsey Graham

Leonard Blavatnik is a Ukrainian-born billionaire with longstanding ties to those close to Vladimir Putin. Blavatnik is a British and American citizen whose vast fortune came from the privatization of Russian aluminum and other industries in the 1990s—now notorious as a corrupt giveaway. Blavatnik is ranked by Forbes as the 59th richest person in the world. He is best known as the owner of the Warner Music Group. During the 2015-2016 election Blavatnik gave $6.35m to leading Republican candidates and incumbent senators. Included in this figure is $800k to South Carolina Senator Lindsey Graham. He also gave $3.5m to a super PAC tied to the lawmaker.
Blavatnik’s support for McConnell drew notice when his company Rusal announced plans for a $200m aluminum plant in Kentucky. That came after McConnell blocked a bill that assisted US sanctions on Rusal.

Blavatnik’s history of deals with “individuals with checkered pasts, deep Kremlin ties and a reputation for corruption” is well known.

Blavatnik also donated $1m to the Trump Inaugural Committee.

Polls and Trump's 'Bullshit'

A Gallup poll from July 1974 was released 11 days before Richard Nixon was forced to resign. 46% of Americans wanted to see him removed from office. A poll released by CNN found that 50% of Americans want to see Trump impeached and removed from office. Even compared to the depths of the Nixon scandal, this is a first.

After being completely decimated for two weeks in hearings, Trump has convinced himself that Americans are starting to see things his way. “Support for Impeachment is dropping like a rock, down into the 20’s in some Polls." “polls have now turned very strongly against Impeachment, especially in swing states.” Trump claimed only 25 percent of those surveyed supported impeachment and the numbers were “actually devastating to the Democrats.”
The problem with Trump’s lie is that data does not exist outside of his imagination. There are NO national polls that reflect Trump's falsehoods. None show the national figure “down into the 20s.” Why does this POTUS pretend polls say what he wants them to say?

Folks best remember Trump’s words of guiding wisdom ... “People will just believe you. You just tell them and they believe you.”

Trump swears on National TV - 'Bullshit' - Update II

This is the partial text from Trump's latest speech.
The 'stable genius' has just released this photo of himself on Twitter. This observer is very quickly running out of alarmed adjectives.

Trump is slipping far beyond the 'normal' and it's happening right now.
Damn it truly is. This man is a) senile and b) going rapidly insane. He is slurring his words terribly and cannot say 'stock market'.

Nicolle Wallace rips traitors

MSNBC anchor Nicolle Wallace rips traitors for siding with Russia against American interests. Latest is Fox News Tucker Carlson very openly saying he supports Russia over America.

To go along with that we have Republican senator Sen. John Kennedy (R-LA) making his third attempt at answering whether he believes the U.S. intelligence conclusion that Russia interfered in the 2016 election. Wallace notes that Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) and Secretary of State Mike Pompeo have also been pushing the fully debunked Russian disinformation campaign.

Trump claims he wants aides to testify - appeals court order

The next hearing is Wednesday and the committee chairman offered Trump an ultimatum: either participate in the process or quit complaining about it.

Presidents are not kings - McGahn ordered to testify


It's a legal defeat for Trump who has tried to prevent anyone from giving testimony. Not only must McGahn provide testimony, but so too a raft of officials who have been stonewalling.
A federal judge has ruled that Don McGahn, former White House Counsel for Trump, must submit to a congressional subpoena and testify before the U.S. House of Representatives.

Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson's ruling: "Stated simply, the primary takeaway from the past 250 years of recorded American history is that Presidents are not kings ... This means that they do not have subjects, bound by loyalty or blood, whose destiny they are entitled to control."
"Rather, in this land of liberty, it is indisputable that current and former employees of the White House work for the People of the United States, and that they take an oath to protect and defend the Constitution of the United States." "... with respect to senior-level presidential aides, absolute immunity from compelled congressional process simply does not exist."

McGahn was a star witness in special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation and could reveal much.
