Have you heard of the RW tv network One America News ?

Trump's curious connection to Khashoggi family.


Jamal Khashoggi had an uncle, name of Adnan Khashoggi, who was an arms dealer. That guy died last year at age 81.

Good article about him on Wiki....https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Adnan_Khashoggi

So, Adnan had a yacht, the Nabila, which was the largest in the world at the time and was used in the James Bond film Never Say Never Again.
He later sold the yacht to the Sultan of Brunei, who in turn sold it for $29 million to Donald Trump, who sold it for $20 million to Prince Al-Waleed bin Talal as part of a deal to keep his Taj Mahal casino out of bankruptcy.

And Adnan's sister was the mother of....Dodi Fayed,, who was killed along with Princess Dianah in that Paris car wreck.

It's a big club, in a small world, it seems.

edited to add:

Trump bought the yacht, because it was then a record size. He re-named it Princess, and docked it near his Atlantic City casinos, used it for private parties, etc.
The docking fees were something like 400,000, which he paid to his own corporation, which was paying him....
so in effect, he paid himself the money, but it was deductible as a business expense.

How many working computers do you have in your house?

Not counting tablets , just desktops....

I just caught myself sending ME an email from the den computer to my living room laptop, so I could continue an article when I go into the other room, and realized how normal it seemed to do that.

The tablets, now...2 of them, one is a Nook that has recipes on it, so handy when I am cooking, and adjustable font size. Guess all those tiny print cookbooks are outdated now.
