Day after day the evidence of criminal activity by Trump and his close associates to aid the Russian theft of the 2016 Residential election on Trump’s behalf continues to grow.  Yesterday a former CIA Director said that Russians could not have micro targeted their propaganda the way they did without American assistance.  Now we learn that close Trump associates assisted in circulating tweets from Russian troll farms.

Multiple members of Donald Trump’s 2016 presidential campaign, including Donald Trump Jr., campaign manager Kellyanne Conway and other staffers circulated tweets by professional trolls on the payroll of the Russian government, according to a startling new report from the Daily Beast.

According to the Daily Beast:

“The Twitter account @Ten_GOP, which called itself the ‘Unofficial Twitter account of Tennessee Republicans,’ was operated from the Kremlin-backed ‘Russian troll farm,’ or Internet Research Agency, a source familiar with the account confirmed.”

The Russian-backed organization responsible for the tweets engaged in a widespread influence campaign that included popular social media platforms Facebook, Twitter, YouTube and Instagram.

Twitter refused to comment on the revelations, citing “privacy and security reasons.”

This is the first tangible evidence presented to the public that members of the Trump campaign team promoted Russian propaganda materials in the course of the election. Some of these campaign members, including Conway and the president’s son, are influential within the Trump administration… [emphasis added]

Manafart’s Millions

As time goes on we learn more and more about how deeply the Trump campaign was entwined with Russians, bent on establishing a US administration that could be controlled from the Kremlin.  If my interpretation is correct, and I haven’t been wrong yet, I think we can surmise that the criminal conspiracy came to us through Manafart’s Millions.

Paul Manafort, a former campaign manager for President Donald Trump, has much stronger financial ties to a Russian oligarch than have been previously reported.

An NBC News investigation reveals that $26 million changed hands in the form of a loan between a company linked to Manafort and the oligarch, Oleg Deripaska, a billionaire with close ties to the Kremlin.

The loan brings the total of their known business dealings to around $60 million over the past decade, according to financial documents filed in Cyprus and the Cayman Islands.

Manafort was forced to resign from the Trump campaign in August 2016, following allegations of improper financial dealings, charges he has strenuously denied. He is now a central figure in special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation into alleged collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia. Investigators have said they are looking into Manafort’s financial ties to prominent figures in Russia…

Click through for more.  Rachel Maddow broke the story down in detail.

If you let the video run beyond the end, you’ll also get Rachel’s interview with Richard Engel, the author of the article.

Everything above is well documented.  I cannot prove what follows, but I consider it the most likely scenario of how Trump became Putin’s puppet.

I think Deripaska contacted Manafart, told him about the dirt they have on Trump and offered Manafart big money to serve as go between.  Manifart offered his free services to the Trump campaign, and told the moron that Russia had pics of hookers peeing on him, and proof of several criminal money laundering deals.  Manifart told Trump that the dirt would stay private, and Russia would try to put him in the White House, if he would lift the sanctions against Russia and support Russia’s aggression in eastern Europe.  Trump agreed, Russia put him in the White House, Manafart got millions and Trump has tried to normalize Relations with Russia, prevented so far by publicity.

Like Keith, I heard it about both Blacks and Puerto Ricans in NYC in the 1960s, but by then I had already rejected my father’s racism and was a civil rights activist. Since Fuhrer Drumpfenfarten is only two years older than me, he has no excuse. Republicans are racist by choice. RESIST!!

From The New Yorker: Secretary of Education Betsy DeVos offered a spirited defense of her boss’s intelligence on Friday, bluntly asking reporters, “Would a moron hire me?”

“My intelligence can be very intimidating,” DeVos said. “And if Donald Trump was a moron, he would not want to be around people who are intelligenter than him.”

As evidence that Trump does not feel inferior around highly intelligent people, DeVos singled out other members of Trump’s Cabinet. "Leave me out of it for a second,” she said. “If Donald Trump was such a blithering idiot, why would he have hired Rick Perry?”

Would a moron hire her? In a word, Andy, YES!  One did!  RESIST!!

Please pardon my brevity.  One of the other tenants overloaded the power and kept knocking my AC out.  Eventually the clerk found which one and helped him spread the load, but I missed sleep during and more sleep after, because I was so tense.

From The New Yorker: In a ringing endorsement from the Secretary of Education, Betsy DeVos said on Thursday that she did the math on Donald Trump’s tax plan and that she estimates it will save the United States roughly eleventy krillion dollars.

“I took out a pencil and paper and figured it out the old-fashioned way,” DeVos told reporters. “I wound up going through a lot of paper, because eleventy krillion has ten hundredteen zeroes.”

DeVos stressed that the eleventy-krillion figure was actually a conservative estimate. “The exact number was between eleventy and ninety-quelve, but I rounded down to eleventy,” she said.

Dang Andy!! She sure is using her PhD in Bullshitology! RESIST!!

Target: Manafart

It could not be happening to a sleazier sphincter.  Special Prosecutor Robert Mueller has  Trump co-conspirator Paul Manafart by the genitals like a starvation-crazed pit-bull, and I could not be more pleased.  I expected Mueller do do this, but I did not expect it so quickly or with such vigor and tenacity.

Two stories that popped overnight suggest that special counsel Robert Mueller is aggressively pursuing Paul Manafort, the former chairman of President Trump’s campaign.

CNN reports that “U.S. investigators wiretapped former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort under secret court orders before and after the election”: “The government snooping continued into early this year, including a period when Manafort was known to talk to President Donald Trump. Some of the intelligence collected includes communications that sparked concerns among investigators that Manafort had encouraged the Russians to help with the campaign, according to three sources familiar with the investigation …

A secret order authorized by the court that handles the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) began after Manafort became the subject of an FBI investigation that began in 2014,” per Evan Perez, Shimon Prokupecz and Pamela Brown. “It centered on work done by a group of Washington consulting firms for Ukraine’s former ruling party … The surveillance was discontinued at some point last year for lack of evidence … The FBI then restarted the surveillance after obtaining a new FISA warrant that extended at least into early this year. … Sources say the second warrant was part of the FBI’s efforts to investigate ties between Trump campaign associates and suspected Russian operatives. Such warrants require the approval of top Justice Department and FBI officials, and the FBI must provide the court with information showing suspicion that the subject of the warrant may be acting as an agent of a foreign power.”…

The New York Times reports on its front page this morning that, after agents raided his home with a no-knock search warrant this summer, Mueller’s prosecutors told Manafort that they planned to indict him. The story says the feds decided to pick the lock on Manafort’s front door in Alexandria, Va., because they feared he might try to destroy evidence: “They took binders stuffed with documents and copied his computer files, looking for evidence that Mr. Manafort … set up secret offshore bank accounts. They even photographed the expensive suits in his closet.”… [emphasis original]

Rachel Maddow spent over 21 minutes sorting these out.

I have no doubt that Manafart knows where to find hundreds dump trucks full of dirt on the Fuhrer and on scores of his cronies.  He can either flip and tell all, or else two things will happen.  Pit-bull Mueller will turn him into a soprano, and he’ll be going away for a long, long time.  The Fuhrer won’t pardon him, because then he’d have to tell all.

So we’ll see what Manafart does.  Which Republican course will he take?  Is he a greater coward or a greater fool?

It’s a super muggy day here in Portland, and we have four cool days starting tomorrow.  Tomorrow is a holy day and I shall be meditating upon the Ellipsoid Orb.  My Broncos are hosting the Cowboys in the afternoon game, but it will not be televised here. Crying face  I play Pam in our fantasy football league, which she leads, and she’s going to be damn tough to beat.  May the Ellipsoid Orb shine it’s holy light on your team, unless they are known for cow pucky!

From The New Yorker: In his most stunning deal yet with Democratic leaders, Donald Trump agreed on Friday to be impeached by the end of 2017.

Emerging from an Oval Office meeting with Senate Minority Leader Charles Schumer and House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, a beaming Trump touted the deal for his imminent removal from office.

“Chuck and Nancy and I got a deal done on impeachment,” Trump said. “It was a good deal and it was a fast deal.”

Trump said that the Democrats had convinced him that agreeing to be impeached would make him soar in popularity. “People are going to love me for doing this,” Trump said. “They’re going to love it on all the channels.”

LOL Andy! He’s dumb enough, but Lyin’ Ryan would balk, unless he could impeach Pence too. RESIST!!

Pence is clearly guilty of Obstruction of Justice and much more. If we can just win the House next year, we can remove the Reich from power. RESIST!!
