01) IT’S OVER: Key Witness Flips On Trump


“This may be the last nail in the coffin of Trump’s presidency. Cenk Uygur, John Iadarola, Brooke Thomas, and Jules Suzdaltsev, hosts of The Young Turks, discuss.

“Allen Weisselberg, longtime chief financial officer of the Trump Organization, has been granted immunity by federal prosecutors, according to the Wall Street Journal (paywall).

Weisselberg got a pass from facing charges by reportedly “providing information about Michael Cohen in the criminal investigation into hush-money payments for two women during the 2016 presidential campaign.”

Scrutiny of Weisselberg, “should worry the president,” Trump biographer Tim O’Brien wrote earlier this year. “If he winds up in investigators’ crosshairs for secreting payoffs, he could potentially provide much more damaging information to prosecutors than [Michael] Cohen ever could about the president’s dealmaking.”
Cohen, the president’s onetime personal attorney, implicated Trump in criminal activity while pleading guilty to two felony violations of federal campaign finance law this week. Cohen admitted paying an adult film star “at the direction of the candidate,” referring to Trump, to ensure her silence.

“Leading #MeToo advocate Asia Argento settled an accusation of sexual assault from former child actor.

Argento was one of the 13 women included in the first October 2017 New Yorker report about Harvey Weinstein’s sexual harassment and assault that dated back decades.

According to documents obtained by the New York Times, leading #MeToo advocate Asia Argento settled an accusation of sexual assault from former child actor and musician Jimmy Bennett for the sum of $380,000 to be paid over the course of a year and a half.

The claim and resulting discussions of payment are included in documents between the lawyers for Argento and Bennett. The claim states Bennett was a little over 17 years old at the time of the alleged assault, which took place in a California hotel room in 2013 when Argento was 37. The legal age of consent in California is 18.

As part of the agreement, Bennett, who is now 22, gave a selfie of he and Argento in bed and its copyright to Argento, now 42. Three people familiar with the case told the New York Times that the documents were authentic.”

I already offered a few personal thoughts about this, a couple days back…

…But I’d also like to add, that hypocritical cases and antics like these, remind me of the old saying…

…”And this is why nobody else, can ever have anything nice!”

01) We Must Call it a “Front Hole” In The Name Of Social Justice


“PC Police on scene”

It’s still the same physical body part…isn’t it?

If they have no qualms with “born in the wrong body”…or “other gendered”…then why is it such an issue, to call it a vagina?

…Where is the conflict?

This sounds like someone working way too hard, to find “a problem”.

…Why do they so desperately need “a problem”?

“WASHINGTON — President Donald Trump is increasingly venting frustration to his national security team about the U.S. strategy in Afghanistan and showing renewed interest in a proposal by Blackwater founder Erik Prince to privatize the war, current and former senior administration officials said.

Prince’s idea, which first surfaced last year during the president’s Afghanistan strategy review, envisions replacing troops with private military contractors who would work for a special U.S. envoy for the war who would report directly to the president…
