Michael Avenatti Files: Court Documents Show Porn Star Lawyer Reported $8 Million Windfall in Feb. When he Took on Stormy

I have had zero interest in opining on the Avenatti-Daniels faux news story. Up to now. In the back of my mind I have been wondering who is footing the bill. Then I read that Avenatti was deep in debt. Figured he was a slime bag. Ok. No big news there. Now the headline? Avenatti mysteriously came across at least $8 million to pay off his debts. In February! When he took on Stormy. Gateway Pundit has the details but you have the drift.

From the beginning, this has been fishy. Daniels’s previous lawyer advised her to stick to her agreements. In contrast, Avenatti okayed her violating with impunity her non-disclosure agreement on “60 Minutes” despite a binding arbitration judgment against her. She acknowledged on Twitter that she is not paying for her lawyer. So who is? And did he indemnify her against all multimillion-dollar penalties? The Hill

The Michael Avenatti Files — How did a bankrupt attorney come across $8 million after picking up porn star client Stormy Daniels?

Porn star lawyer Michael Avenatti is a huge hit with the Democrat-media complex.
The attorney for porn star Stormy Daniels has held 108 interviews on cable news outlets MSNBC and CNN since March 7th.

But who is Michael Avenatti?

Last week Avenatti leaked bank records from Trump attorney Michael Cohen less than a month after the FBI raided Cohen’s office and home.

Avenatti was on all the cable and news programs touting his great find on Cohen’s wealth.

As attorney Robert Barnes has discovered Michael Avenatti has a very disturbing and possibly criminal past.
Avenatti is deeply in debt — Not just with his failed coffee company but with his law firm which failed to even file his law firm’s income tax returns for 2014, 2015, and 2016.

On Thursday May 10th Michael Avenatti released a statement saying all fees and and expenses of his case with porn star Stormy Daniels “have either been funded by our client, Ms. Stephanie Clifford, or by donations from our crowdjustice.com page.More at Gateway Pundit

CIA Gina Haspel – Are we in the Matrix and going down the rabbit hole?

 

For those who watched the CIA hearing of candidate Gina Haspel, you had the choice of what Morpheus offered Neo in the film The Matrix. I include two clips. The Kamala Harris interrogation and The Matrix.

Morpheus: This is your last chance. After this, there is no turning back. You take the blue pill – the story ends, you wake up in your bed and believe whatever you want to believe. You take the red pill – you stay in Wonderland and I show you how deep the rabbit-hole goes.

The questioning of Gina Haspel’s morality and feelings seemed to be the focus of the Democrats. Morality? Haspel, the woman who was shot at and saved the bullets from her car for a souvenir. Who was undercover making drops and who knows what else. Who knowingly and willingly would give her life for us. What on earth to you think happens in these postings of CIA operatives stationed in what they term as “Garden Spots.” The hell holes of the world, trying their best to keep us safe and many other things that are supposed to support America via clandestine activities. The Committee members acknowledged that what they learn most days keep them up at night.

So using the film “The Matrix” let us bounce off the theme of the film without giving away the ending.

The Matrix:

Thomas Anderson is a young and dissatisfied computer programmer who lives a double-life online as “Neo”, a skilled hacker-for-hire. Feeling that there is something off about the world, Thomas pursues an enigmatic darknet phrase referring to “The Matrix” and finds himself stumbling down a rabbit hole to a terrifying truth: …

I chose just one clip for this purpose and that of the Kamela Harris interrogation of candidate Haspel.

Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA): “Can you please answer the question?” CIA Director Nominee Gina Haspel: “Senator, I think I’ve answered the question.” Sen. Harris: “No, you have not. Do you believe that the previous techniques, now armed with hindsight, do you believe they were immoral?”

Morpheus: What is real? How do you define ‘real’? If you’re talking about what you can feel, what you can smell, what you can taste and see, then ‘real’ is simply electrical signals interpreted by your brain.

 

 

Neo: I don’t like the idea that I’m not in control of my life.

Morpheus: I know *exactly* what you mean. Let me tell you why you’re here. You’re here because you know something. What you know you can’t explain, but you feel it. You’ve felt it your entire life, that there’s something wrong with the world. You don’t know what it is, but it’s there, like a splinter in your mind, driving you mad. It is this feeling that has brought you to me. Do you know what I’m talking about?

Neo: The Matrix.

Morpheus: Do you want to know what it is?

Neo: Yes.

John Kerry Greatest Hits of Asinine remarks

 

I have been blogging since 2009. I had no idea I had so many very special “moments’ of Kerry making an Ass of himself. I wanted to limit the remarks to short clips and statements on Iran so had to leave out some outstanding moments.  So here is a good jumping off point with a few good chuckles thrown in. Circa 2014.

 

Sure we are safer now than ever before in the history of mankind.

John Kerry says we’re safer than ever on February 25 2015

 

 

Here is one that we may have easily forgotten about. Kerry acknowledges that the cash may go to terrorists.

U.S. paid Iran ransom for U.S hostages from tax payers funds

The Obama administration is facing criticism for paying Iran $1.7 billion in taxpayer funds as part of what critics described as a “ransom” bound up in a controversial hostage trade designed to secure the release of five Americans long-held by Iran, according to conversations with administration officials and experts critical of the agreement.

Under the terms of the settlement, Iran will be paid a $400 million balance, plus an additional $1.3 billion in interest from the taxpayer fund, according to a State Department official.

And as far as the release of Billions to Iran recently?

Meanwhile, Secretary of State John Kerry said money from the Iran deal could end up in the hands of Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps.

“I think that some of [the $55 billion] will end up in the hands of the IRGC or of other entities, some of which are labeled terrorists,” Kerry said.

 

Silly us. Of course we all knew that the Arms and Missiles development and use was simply a throw away that we were planning on dropping anyway.

Kerry: ‘Arms and Missile … Were Thrown in as Add-Ons’ to Iran Deal

 Weekly Standard:

Secretary of State John Kerry told NBC’s Chuck Todd that “the arms and the missiles” were “thrown in as an add-on to this nuclear agreement.”

“So this [deal] focused on getting rid of the principal problem in the region, which is Iran’s threat to Israel, their threat to the region, to have a nuclear capacity,” Kerry said defending the deal.

“We believe with this, for years into the future, we have this incredible capacity to have access, to have inspections, to hold them accountable.

“And by the way, even though the arms and the missiles, they were thrown in as an add-on to this nuclear agreement. It was always contemplated if Iran did come and deal on the nuclear program, that was going to be lifted.”

 

Here is go. Less we forget that Kerry asked for help with our sailors instead of rescuing them. They of course were then held by the Iranians. They also had access to the secret stuff on the ship.

Kerry, Ash Carter asked Iran to help when Navy boats had trouble, letting them be captured

Iran holds two US Navy boats in Persian Gulf.

This is both stunning and insane. Thankfully, the sailors now appeared to be safe. But this basically means that Kerry and Carter put them in captivity, at the whim of Iran.

 

I just couldn’t resist this bit of Paris Accord. Just to provide insight into our savant’s method of orgainizing his thought patterns.

BONUS:

John Kerry: ‘There would have been no Paris Accord if there had been penalties

“So that is a serious form of enforcement, if you will, compliance. But there is no penalty for it, obviously, but if there had been a penalty, we wouldn’t have been able to get an agreement.”

On December 14, 2015 I posted this and see if you can follow his logic.

Here Kerry opines on two insights on the Global Warming “agreement.”Kerry: Public Shaming is ‘Most Powerful Weapon in Many Ways’ to Enforce World Climate Agreement. The other astute observation?

While discussing the global climate change agreement made in Paris over the weekend, Secretary of State John Kerry acknowledged on Fox News Sunday that there wouldn’t been an agreement at all if there were binding penalties for countries not meeting emissions standards.

 

Flashback – John Kerry back to his old tricks of undermining State policy

 

For my flashback Saturday, or “whatever happened to” I didn’t have to go far today. Kerry breeches into the news, once more the traitor he has always been. Doing all he can to make sure his own idiotic Iranian deal stays in place by visiting the major principles. Meeting with Iranian Prime Minister Zarif whose son was best man at his daughter’s wedding. This is in dispute, but it is clear they are friends. I will get to that, but first some of the best from the past.

 

“I am proud of the Iranian-Americans in my own family, and grateful for how they have enriched my life,” Kerry said in the official statement.

Kerry’s daughter Vanessa is married to an Iranian national and physician. Who was best man at the ceremony? The son of Mohammad Javad Zarif, Iran’s Minister of Foreign Affairs.

Zarif was also and Kerry’s chief counterpart in the nuclear deal negotiations.

Kerry also said he was “strongly committed to resolving” the differences between the United States and the Islamic Republic of Iran, “to the mutual benefit of both of our people.”

 

Kerry and his Iranian in-law relatives. Could he be black mailed?

Among Sen. John Kerry’s top fund-raisers are three Iranian-Americans who have been pushing for dramatic changes in U.S. policy toward the Islamic Republic of Iran.

So he didn’t need to have an Iranian-American family member to believe that the United States should forge direct relations with the Islamic Republic or ease U.S. pressure on the regime.

John Kerry and Syria

The Washington Free Beacon in an article titled “An Affair to Remember: John Kerry Hearts Bashar al-Assad” called Kerry the Syrian dictator’s “highest-ranking apologist in American politics”:

Kerry thwarted efforts during the Bush administration to diplomatically isolate Syria after the administration’s own efforts to engage the regime ended in failure in 2003.

…It wasn’t so long ago that Kerry made repeated pilgrimage to Syria, meeting with Assad five times between 2009 and 2011.

He famously used the adjective “generous” to describe Assad, as the Wall Street Journal’s Bret Stephens recalled in a column:

On March 16, 2011—the day after the first mass demonstration against the regime—John Kerry said Assad was a man of his word who had been “very generous with me.” He added that under Assad “Syria will move; Syria will change as it embraces a legitimate relationship with the United States.” (This is the man who is our secretary of state, and mastermind of the Iran nuclear deal.)

As Michael Rubin recently wrote in Commentary Magazine, Kerry’s staffers described “their collective cringe when, after a motorcycle ride with Bashar al-Assad, he returned to Washington referring to Bashar as ‘my dear friend.’”

The National Review detailed more about Kerry’s positive impression of Assad (2007):

After a “long and comprehensive” meeting with Assad in April of that year, Kerry described it as “a very positive discussion.” A month later, Kerry was back in Syria. His spokesman, insisting that “Syria can play a critical role in bringing peace and stability if it makes the strategic decision to do so,” asserted that Kerry had “emerged as one of the primary American interlocutors with the Syrian government.” Despite the senator’s interlocutions, Assad, it appears, has made the wrong “strategic decision.”

 

Now the latest from our traitor:

Former Secretary of State John Kerry is actively working to keep the Iran nuclear deal in place as U.S. weighs the future of the deal, according to a new report.

Kerry, who served as the nation’s top diplomat under former President Barack Obama, was an instrumental leader in the development of the 2015 Iran deal, which put Iran’s nuclear program on ice in exchange for relief from crippling sanctions.

The Boston Globe reports Kerry met with Iranian Foreign Minister Javad Zarif to examine how to preserve the deal.

Additionally, he has met and spoken with several European officials on the matter, including German President Frank-Walter Steinmeier and French President Emmanuel Macron.

Trump, the deep state, meet former bunny Judge Kimba Wood – Cohen’s Judge

 

Wait a minute….the judge hearing the Michel Cohen case today is Kimba Wood? That Kimba Wood? Harvard Law grad who once trained as Playboy Bunny + once nominated by Bill Clinton as AG? Stuff you just could not make up. Married George Soros. Reported that she was in line to be Hillary’s AG.

 

1. She was President Bill Clinton’s pick for Attorney General in 1993

President Bill Clinton nominated Wood to become the first female Attorney General. In fact, Wood was hand-picked by Hillary Clinton, who had been asked to submit a list of possible nominees for her husband’s consideration. However, Wood withdrew from the nomination after the White House learned about her brief time as a Playboy Bunny – and that she employed an illegal alien as a nanny. Further, Wood actually helped the nanny to illegally remain in the country by paying taxes for her.

2. She trained as a Playboy Bunny

3. She had an extramarital affair that earned her the nickname the “Love Judge”

Wood might be a judge, but her personal past indicates that her moral scruples are lacking. In 1995 at the age of 51, Wood began an affair with married multimillionaire Wall Street financier Frank Richardson. The affair was uncovered by Richardson’s wife when she found passionate passages written about Wood in Richardson’s diary. The tryst earned Wood the nickname the “Love Judge” during Richardson’s divorce trial. Wood married Richardson in 1999.

4. She officiated George Soros’s wedding

Wood officiated the 2013 wedding of notorious liberal billionaire George Soros. At the time, Soros was 83 and his bride, Tamiko Bolton, was 42. Numerous prominent liberals attended the wedding, including House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi and then-California Lt. Gov. Gavin Newsome. In lieu of wedding gifts, the couple asked that donations be made to several organizations including Planned Parenthood and Global Witness, an environmental activist group.

5. She doesn’t believe in attorney-client privilege

During Cohen’s hearing on Monday, Wood forced Cohen to expose the identity of a previously unnamed client. That client turned out to be none other than Fox News host Sean Hannity, who maintains that he only asked Cohen for legal advice as a friend and never retained or paid him for any legal services.

What possibly could go wrong for the Donald?

Facebook hearing – the dog and pony show and the donations that were behind it

 

I watched a good portion of the Zuckerberg hearing. I came away from it thinking it was a dog and pony show. Most of the Senators were poorly lacking in having any real understanding of technology. They no doubt had their staff produce questions that were basically sound, then Zuckerberg would simply act as if he didn’t understand their question with the blank star and ask them to clarify. This of course left the Senators looking stupid. “How many categories of information do you collect?” “I don’t understand the question.”  People decide what is out there by what they place on their page.” Then he goes to his talking points of script. I can’t imagine the House hearing today. Why have almost 50 Senators asking questions, why not a handful that understand technology. But then again, all should be happy. He was very happy to support government regulation and would work with the Senators on it. One thing we did learn is that FB is working with the Special Counsel. But of course. Yes, we indeed want the thought police. Just like we have with YouTube. A previous post:

Southern Poverty Law Center secretly policing content for YouTube

The Southern Poverty Law Center is assisting YouTube in policing content on their platform, The Daily Caller has learned.

The left-wing nonprofit — which has more recently come under fire for labeling legitimate conservative organizations as “hate groups” — is one of the more than 100 nongovernment organizations (NGOs) and government agencies in YouTube’s “Trusted Flaggers” program, a source with knowledge of the arrangement told TheDC.

 

But let’s look at the money:

Facebook PAC donation to senators

Ahead of more testimony from Zuckerberg today, why not check out the contributions that senators on the Judiciary and Commerce, Science and Transportation committees have received for their campaigns from Facebook’s PAC since it started making political donations in the 2012 election cycle.

The totals are based on an NBC review of data from the Center for Responsive Politics.

Check out the full interactive here. (Scroll down a good way on the page)

Here is a bit of analysis:

A MapLight analysis of contributions found that the ubiquitous social network and its employees have given more than $3.1 million in campaign contributions to federal candidates during the last decade.

Facebook donors gave more than $265,000 to members of the Senate Commerce panel, while senators on the Judiciary committee reported $284,600 during the decade. House committee members received about $323,800 from the company and its employees. Rep. Anna Eshoo, a Silicon Valley Democrat whose district is adjacent to the sprawling Facebook headquarters, received $51,050 in Facebook-related donations.

Trump, received $4,815 from eight Facebook employees. (Brave souls- wonder if they are still working)

Ben Carson, a neurosurgeon who ran unsuccessfully for the 2016 GOP nomination and who currently is Trump’s housing secretary, ranked last among presidential candidates favored by Facebook donors, receiving only $250. H/T: Fast Company

Via Free Beacon:

Sheryl Sandberg, Facebook’s chief operating officer, has maxed out political donations to a number of Democratic candidates including House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D., Calif.) this cycle, according to Federal Election Commission filings.

In addition to the donations, Sandberg appeared in the hacked emails of John Podesta, the former chairman of Hillary Clinton’s campaign.

A pdf file discovered by the Free Beacon that was attached to one of the emails  spoke of ‘discreet conversations’ about forming ‘working relationships’ between the Clinton campaign and the likes of Facebook and Apple. That memo referenced the work being done for the Clinton campaign by a group linked to Eric Schmidt, the former chief executive of Alphabet, Google’s parent company.

Facebook told USA Today that it is important for the tech giant to “develop relationships with elected officials” when questioned on the company’s PAC contributions that have been given to members of the committees questioning Zuckerberg.

Flashback – Recall how hurt, crying Hillary Clinton supporters tried to deal with their loss!

 

If you feel anything like me,  I sure am sure plum wore out with all the old timers such as Hillary and Mooch out there telling us how childish – now losing our good parent and now having bad parent Trump,-  we deplorable, we dirt people are. Irredeemable. So for a Saturday flashback, I give you a clip of how the Snowflakes took the news that their gal Hillary lost. Something on the lighter side for a Saturday.

 

 

Here we go with a memory from 2016!
