Trump being ugly isn't a conspiracy, though. A conspiracy would be something like his administration putting doctored footage of a White House press conference online to make it look like a top journalist asking difficult questions had hit an intern, all so they could silence him and make his media outlet look bad. Which CNN are currently suing the White House about.

Doctored by Infowars, and released by the White House Press Secretary as the official version of the event.

With the US elections over, there has been some news.
Papadopoulos reported to prison today to begin his sentence.
Roger Stone associate Jerome Corsi is negotiating a plea deal with Mueller. (Also notable a Corsi is a conspiracy theorist and was specifically disavowed by "Q" today , see the forum thread on "The Storm" for Q)
Mueller has accused Manafort of lying after Manafort's guilty plea.
A court document was filed with a paragraph mistakenly mentioning an indictment of someone by the last name Assange. There are no known indictments against anyone with that last name currently, and obviously this reference is believed to be Julian Assange.

It's sounding as if Manafort has been offered a pardon.

He can have been in no doubt that a refusal to co-operate fully an openly with prosecutors would result in a custodial sentence which could easily last the rest of his life.

Manafort lied "on a variety of subject matters," violating his plea agreement, prosecutors allege in the three-page filing signed by both the defense team and the prosecution. The special counsel's office says it will provide more details at a later date.
Both sides ask the judge to now move Manafort's case toward sentencing.

Source:

The only conceivable reason to withdraw co-operation, therefore, is that the message has come through that there's a 'Get Out Of Jail Free' Card waiting in an envelope. He's not even offering evidence that he told the truth (simply denying that he lied) and is asking to move to sentencing; that's like asking the executioner to dispense with the sharpening of the axe and get on with the chopping (remember, he has pleaded guilty).

This will be massive and raises the question 'how far down the line will he go?' Trump has no interest in precedent nor the howls of his opponents; he could just start handing them out like book tokens.

The NY Times is reporting that Manafort was telling Trumps team what he (Manafort) told Mueller.

With Manafort having been accused by Mueller of lying in what he said to Mueller, and Trump having submitted his answers to Mueller's questions (and saying he wrote them himself), one wonders if Trump's answers are the same an Manafort's....

After the pre-election lull in news, it seems things are moving quickly now.

Michael Cohen (Trump's "fixer") has plead guilty to another charge, lying to Congress about Trump business with Russia continuing past the election. Also in the plea was a statement he briefed Trump family members on the negotiations. And someone pointed out that Trump Jr. testified to Congress that he wasn't aware of that, which would be lying to Congress if true.

Randy Credico (Stone's contact in the pipeline to Wikileaks) has a lot to say on Twitter about Trump. Namely that Stone has all sorts of dirt on Trump, including the infamous pee tape.

Federal agents just showed up at Edward Burke's offices, kicked everyone out, and papered over the windows so no one could see inside. Burke handles property taxes, for Trump.

^Not defending 'Trump' here but it seems that if he goes down (gets impeached..whatever..) it will be for something not directly related to actual Russian collusion before the election.
:oops:

Interesting. I'm not sure what to make of the linked Twitter feed of Rick Wilson re Randy Credico's rants, a self confessed prankster..

There's talk about Deutschebank being currently under investigation for money laundering, the fact that both Trump & Kushner have large loans with it, & whether there's any connection..

The reporting I've seen so far on Deutchebank has been that the raids today were related to the Panama Papers, and not Trump/Kushner and the bank.

I think this just about fits here. I bet this guy originally came from Cromer.

A North Dakota mechanic has entered a guilty plea in federal court in relation to what the government charged was a fantastic plot to kill the president.

According to federal authorities, Gregory Lee Leingang, 42, of Bismarck, stole a forklift and entered a presidential motorcade route on Sept. 6, 2017, before Donald Trump arrived to give a tax reform speech at a Mandan Refinery. Leingang was apprehended after the forklift got stuck in a gated area of the refinery. Questioned by police and U.S. Secret Service agents, he reportedly confessed to a bizarre plot.

“The intent was to basically try to get to the limo, flip the limo and get to the president ... to kill the president,” U.S. Assistant State’s Attorney Brandi Sasse Russell told a federal court on Friday, according to The Bismarck Tribune.

The conspiracies continue even after the elections.

Lame-duck Republican legislatures in two Midwestern states where Democrats seized key state offices in November are trying to kneecap the incoming leaders and change election rules, aiming to consolidate GOP power despite the election results.

In Wisconsin, Republicans aim to limit early voting, change the date of the state’s presidential primary to help a conservative member of the Wisconsin Supreme Court win re-election, limit the governor’s ability to make certain appointments and block Gov.-elect Tony Evers from eliminating a state economic development agency.

To the east, Michigan’s GOP legislators are looking to limit the power of the state’s attorney general and secretary of state over lawsuits and campaign finance reforms. Democrats will take over from Republicans in the two offices.

In both states, the lawmakers are mimicking what happened in North Carolina in 2016, after Gov. Roy Cooper, a Democrat, ousted Republican Pat McCrory. Before Cooper took office, the GOP-dominated Legislature moved to limit his power to make appointments, and it has since consistently tried to alter election rules to help Republicans. Cooper has managed to successfully fight some of the changes with lawsuits.
Michigan, Wisconsin and North Carolina are all presidential battlegrounds, and in all three states district lines for House and state legislative seats have been heavily gerrymandered to favor Republicans.

Mueller has recommended no jail time for Flynn as the result of Flynn's extensive cooperation.

Another election conspiracy, result could well be overturned in the district.

Dan McCready, the Democratic candidate in North Carolina’s 9th Congressional District, withdrew his concession on Thursday as new details emerged about allegations of election fraud that may have favored his Republican challenger.

McCready’s decision, first announced in an interview with Charlotte television station WSOC, comes as North Carolina is dealing with an unfolding scandal over absentee ballots. Election officials are trying to determine why many were never mailed in in certain counties that likely would have favored the Democrats in the election, and three people have told BuzzFeed News and WSOC that they were hired to collect such absentee votes, which would be a violation of state law. Republican Mark Harris is currently leading in the election by 905 votes. McCready conceded last month about 24 hours after polls closed in the midterm elections.

“Last week we began to learn about shameful criminal activity, bankrolled by my opponent, to take away North Carolinians very rights to vote,” McCready said in a video posted Thursday on Twitter. “I didn’t serve overseas in the Marine Corps just to come back home and watch politicians and career criminals attack our democracy.” McCready also called on Harris to “tell us exactly what he knew and when he knew it.” ...

The state elections board has refused to certify the 9th District results, and the North Carolina Republican Party said it was open to a new election should it be necessary. The board can order a new vote if “irregularities or improprieties occurred to such an extent that they taint the results of the entire election and cast doubt on its fairness.”

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) also said earlier Thursday that Congress could refuse to seat Harris until the alleged fraud is investigated. ...

Now that she's plead guilty, more information about the Russia-NRA ties are being reported.

https://abcnews.go.com/Politics/mar...ian-agent-reaches-plea-deal/story?id=59719083

------------------------------------------------------------
After that now infamous meeting, the agreement said, Butina sent the Russian Official a message, which was translated as saying “We should let them express their gratitude now, we will put pressure on them quietly later.”
.....
“Unrelated to specific presidential campaigns,” Erickson wrote in an October 2016 email to an acquaintance that was later obtained by the FBI, “I’ve been involved in securing a VERY private line of communication between the Kremlin and key [unnamed political party] leaders through, of all conduits, the [unnamed gun-rights organization].”

The US is a mockery of it's once idealistic vision, run by international oligarch as a for profit enterprise, strip mining the people of every last dime, and looting the treasury blind. There is no government, it's almost a terrorist organization unto itself creating endless self serving laws, overthrowing the wishes of the people with a corrupt Judicial, arming the police like they were an occupation army. The hand writing is on the wall. Collapse and revolution is probably not far off with or without Trump but certain to come.

I wonder if Russia and China will then seize the opportunity to annex Europe? I think a Chinese flag is in my future.

There are good people in the US fighting back, I have hope for it yet.

I don't think we have to fear Russian or Chinese military domination, Putin has his eyes on creating buffer zones between Russia and the rest of Europe, China is hardly going to launch a military invasion from the other side of the world.

We do need to fear Chinese economic domination though, the UK has foolishly sold vital parts of it's infrastructure to the Chines government.

Even at Fox News the bell tolls for Trump.

Fox News contributor Andrew McCarthy has bad news for President Donald Trump: Get ready to be indicted for violating federal campaign finance laws.

McCarthy, a former federal prosecutor, said on “Fox & Friends” Sunday that attorneys with the Southern District of New York are “clearly” going after Trump, given recent revelations about statements by Michael Cohen, his former personal lawyer, to the U.S. district court.
“They are clearly going after the president on campaign finance violations and I think if you read the sentencing memo the Southern District filed in Cohen’s case, it’s clear that Trump is the target and he’ll be indicted eventually,” McCarthy said.

McCarthy served as assistant U.S. attorney for the Southern District for 18 years before leaving the Justice Department in 2003.

Fox News cuts to what could be the hidden underlying cause of Trump's erratic behaviour: magical hexes from witches.

Those pesky witches have a beef with Trump again.

It may, on the surface, seem like a harmless way to trivialize special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation into Russia’s interference in the 2016 presidential campaign.

But to the actual community of witches, President Donald Trump’s constant invocation of a “witch hunt” is deeply problematic and, frankly, a bit hurtful.

“Many are mad, and the rest are rolling their eyes,” said David Salisbury, a lead organizer at Washington-based witch community Firefly House.

Witches are not a constituency with which politicians normally concern themselves. And there’s little sense in the community that Trump actually cares about what they truly think. But for those who practice witchcraft, the president’s words bring up a painful period in history, when men and women were accused of being witches and murdered, both in the American colonies and in Europe.

It's like people are...
taking pantomime offence in order to emphasise both their existence and their relevance.

Well, not really. I think witches, at least as much as anyone else in the world, would understand the verbal constructs of metaphor. See my above. It's faux offence, primarily to make a point.

Well, it keeps changing. He's meant to be President, but before that he was allegedly a business man and a gameshow host. But who knows what his actual purpose is, he's just a distractive projection.

Oh, sorry @Zeke Newbold , I thought you'd said "What's a Trump for?" .....The answer to your actual question is, "an eating utensil with a number of tines or prongs, used along with a knife, at the dining table"

The Trump Foundation (his charity) is being dissolved.
https://www.nbcnews.com/news/us-new...dge-oversee-dispersal-other-charities-n949386

The Trump Foundation — the charitable foundation started by President Donald Trump years before he became a presidential candidate, which New York’s top prosecutor said exhibited a “shocking pattern of illegality” — will dissolve according to a court filing.
....
“Our petition detailed a shocking pattern of illegality involving the Trump Foundation — including unlawful coordination with the Trump presidential campaign, repeated and willful self-dealing, and much more," state AG Barbara Underwood said in a statement.

“This amounted to the Trump Foundation functioning as little more than a checkbook to serve Mr. Trump’s business and political interests.”
