The Resistance Strikes Back

Prosecutors looking to reinstate indictment against former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort for mortgage fraud


The Manhattan District Attorney's office fought Thursday to reinstate the indictment against President Donald Trump's former campaign chairman Paul Manafort, according to court documents filed in the case.

Manafort had been charged in New York for allegedly conducting a yearlong residential mortgage fraud scheme before the case was dismissed in December due to its similarity to earlier federal charges.

The Manhattan DA's office argued, according to court filings, that the state's double jeopardy law contains an exception that would allow the case to proceed.

Just 6 of Trump's top donors in 2016 and 2018 have given to his reelection

The White House is worried that just 6 of Trump's top donors in 2016 and 2018 have given to his reelection bid, according to a new report

President Donald Trump is failing to attract support from most of the mega-donors who bankrolled his 2016 campaign and continued to give to him in 2018, The New York Times reported.

Just six of the top 38 donors to Trump-aligned super PACs over the past two cycles have donated to America First, the super PAC created to gather all the biggest donations to Trump's 2020 campaign, The Times reported.

Sources told The Times that many donors were concerned about the president's reelection chances and that some were redirecting their money to groups working to secure the Republican Senate majority, which is increasingly in play.

Sheldon and Miriam Adelson are among the most prominent examples. The Adelsons gave $20 million to Trump in 2016 and $10 million in 2018. They haven't sent any cash to the president this cycle — reportedly angering him — but they donated $25 million this year to a PAC supporting Senate Republicans. The Times noted that Sheldon Adelson had expressed concerns about publicly supporting Trump's anti-China rhetoric given the casino magnate's major business interests in Asia.

They Caught The Guy

An African American woman posted a video on Twitter last week of a man yelling racial slurs at her from his car in Naples, FL. She asked for help in identifying him. Well, he was just arrested!

"An East Naples man who allegedly yelled racist insults to a woman that were recorded on video was charged Saturday.

Jeffrey Adam Rouse, 40, led deputies on a chase Friday, verbally threatened someone and defaced two political signs, according to a Collier County Sheriff's Office Facebook post.

On Friday evening, Rouse led deputies on a pursuit after radar detected him driving more than 100 mph at Immokalee Road and U.S. 41, the Sheriff's Office stated. Deputies terminated the pursuit for the safety of other drivers in the area and Rouse went to his home, the post states.

Deputies took him into custody Saturday morning at his residence."

'The Grifter's Club'

It’s the place where President Donald Trump comes to unwind with friends and supporters, where issues of national security have been hashed out at candle-lit tables in front of wealthy socialites, where an overeager retiree once posted a selfie on Facebook with a presidential aide-de-camp holding what looked very much like the “nuclear football.”

And it’s where multiple “Chinese tourists” have been caught trespassing under mysterious circumstances.

Mar-a-Lago, the sumptuous Spanish-style villa in Palm Beach built by cereal heiress Marjorie Merriweather Post, is now the primary residence of Donald J. Trump.

And it is the subject of a soon-to-be released book by four journalists who have covered Mar-a-Lago for the Miami Herald, the book publisher announced Wednesday.

“The Grifter’s Club,” subtitled “Trump, Mar-a-Lago, and the Selling of the Presidency,” is written by Sarah Blaskey, Caitlin Ostroff (now with the Wall Street Journal), Nicholas Nehamas and Jay Weaver.

Publishing house PublicAffairs calls it “a breakthrough account of the palatial resort where President Trump conducts government business with little regard for ethics, security, or the law.”

This seems important (Re: FBI FISA Warrants Review)

Assistant Attorney General for National Security John C. Demers stated:

“The Department of Justice has completed its review of the 29 FISA applications that were the subject of preliminary findings by the DOJ Inspector General (OIG) in March 2020. We are pleased that our review of these applications concluded that all contained sufficient basis for probable cause and uncovered only two material errors, neither of which invalidated the authorizations granted by the FISA Court.


Why isn't the media covering this?

Thom Tillis Wanted to Kill Obamacare. Now He's Plagiarizing It.

Like many Republicans in office today, Sen. Thom Tillis (R-NC) came to power in the Barack Obama era by running against the president’s signature health-care law.

Today, those Republicans are confronting a difficult political environment in which their dogged efforts to kill the Affordable Care Act may have, in fact, made it more popular. And many are trying to whitewash their prior opposition.

Tillis is taking it a bit farther. The North Carolina Republican, who is facing a competitive re-election this fall, is now bragging that a health-care bill he wrote “literally” cribs language from Obamacare.

In a July 27 appearance on an Asheville, North Carolina, TV station, Tillis was asked about what plan Republicans have in place in the event that the Supreme Court strikes down Obamacare in a looming legal challenge. Tillis referenced the bill he co-wrote, called the PROTECT Act, which purports to safeguard the most popular elements of the law—chief among them its guarantee of health coverage for people with pre-existing conditions.

Most Recovered COVID-19 Patients Left With Heart Damage, Study Shows

A new study published Monday in the JAMA Cardiology Journal found that 78 percent of recovered COVID-19 patients had permanent heart damage.

The study from the University Hospital Frankfurt examined the cardiovascular MRIs of 100 people who had recovered from the coronavirus. The heart images showed that almost 80 percent of recovered COVID-19 patients had structural changes to their hearts.

Sixty percent of patients had ongoing myocardial (heart muscle) inflammation even after recovery.

The majority of the patients were not hospitalized and recovered at home, with symptoms ranging from none to moderate.A

Plane with 6 people on board crashes into houses in Utah

WEST JORDAN — Fire and medical crews are responding after a plane carrying six people crashed into the backyard of a home at 8691 S. 3780 West shortly after 1:30 p.m. Saturday.

The crash resulted in “multiple injuries and possible casualties,” said West Jordan Police officer Jennifer Worthen. The injured were taken to area hospitals.

Several medical helicopters carried the injured to area hospitals, she said.

One house took the brunt of the damage and there was reportedly one person in the home when the crash occurred. That person’s condition was not available, Worthen said. Three houses sustained damage, she said.

However, Mayor Dirk Burton said neighbors helped the occupant from the home.

“I don’t know what her condition is,” Burton said, but he said he took it as a positive sign that she was able to leave the house.

Burton said the crash occurred in an established neighborhood, with many of the houses owned by the original owners.

“So they know each other extremely well and they’re very close knit. So they were on top of it very quickly to go help out the residents that were affected,” Burton said.
