Manafort, Cohen Guilty of Fraud

Former Trump lawyer Michael Cohen; former Campaign Manager Paul Manafort
Paul Manafort, the one-time Trump campaign manager, was found guilty on 8 counts of tax and banking fraud on Tuesday. The jury could not reach verdicts on the other 10 counts related to fraud.

Manafort’s lawyers cast the blame for hiding bank accounts on Manafort’s partner Robert Gates, saying he controlled the finances. Manafort also faces additional federal charges and another trial later this month. Everything is related to activities that took place years or even decades before his association with Trump.

Judge Ellis, who presided over the trial, directed that the jurors’ names be kept secret due to threats he had personally received and out of concern for jurors’ safety. Ellis also recommended jurors not talk to the press.

Trump’s former personal lawyer, Michael Cohen, made a plea deal with prosecutors on Tuesday. He admitted to violating campaign finance laws and other charges. Cohen said he made payments to influence the 2016 election by paying off porn star Stormy Daniels and former Playboy bunny Karen McDougal. Both women accused Trump of having consensual affairs. Cohen says he paid them off, violating campaign finance laws, at the direction of the “federal candidate.”

  • To be clear, nothing has been proven against Cohen or Trump, nor does this mean Trump has done anything wrong.
  • Cohen’s statement was made at the direction of his lawyer, Lanny Davis, who is a longtime Hillary confidant.
  • Trump’s attorney Rudy Giuliani said, “There is no allegation of any wrongdoing against the President in the government’s charges against Mr. Cohen. It is clear that, as the prosecutor noted, Mr. Cohen’s actions reflect a pattern of lies and dishonesty over a significant period of time.”

The President reacted to both outcomes by saying these convictions have nothing to do with Russian collusion. Trump maintains that both cases are part of the Robert Mueller “witch hunt.”

Why this Matters: President Trump spoke Tuesday night at a rally in West Virginia. He seems unperturbed. Meanwhile, conservatives all across the nation wonder how long, O God, before the other criminals who have committed treason and sedition be tried before a judge?

What’s Your Facebook Rating?

A new algorithm developed by Facebook tracks your behavior to identify “malicious actors.” It assigns you a rating, which is partly based on how you react to articles. When you call out an article as fake news, Facebook matches your opinion with its own “fact checkers.” If you disagree with them, you lose and get a bad score. The fact-checkers are mostly Soros-funded organizations, highly politicized and far from unbiased.

In China, a similar system is being used. Those with bad scores become blacklisted, which makes it impossible to buy property, make travel reservations, obtain loans, etc.

Memo Outlines Secret Media Scheme

David Brock, the founder of Media Matters which is heavily funded by George Soros, met with other Leftist organizations in January 2017. At the heart of their meeting was a 49-page memo outlining plans to undermine Trump’s conservative agenda and help Democrats overtake the GOP in the 2018 and 2020 elections.

The memo, published by the Washington Free Beacon, describes how Brock and other groups have access to raw data from Facebook, Twitter, and other social media sites so they can “systematically monitor and analyze this unfiltered data.” In the future, they will eliminate “right wing propaganda and fake news,” and through their “robust digital program,” will reach voters directly online.

The memo outlined how Media Matters will provide Facebook with a detailed map of right-wing Facebook pages, and will also provide Google with the information necessary to identify what they consider to be the 40 worst fake news sites so they can be banned from Google’s advertising network.

The Gateway Pundit, a conservative site that has been heavily targeted by the Left, found that Facebook had eliminated an average of 93 percent of traffic to conservative news outlets such as The Daily Caller and Breitbart.

Weinstein Accuser has Her Own Troubles

Asia Argento, the girlfriend of Anthony Bourdain, the CNN headliner who was recently found dead, is now being accused of sexual assault. Argento is one of the Hollywood stars who accused mogul Harvey Weinstein of the sexual assault and helped begin the #MeToo movement.

The allegation against her comes from Jimmy Bennett, who began working with Argento when he was 7 for the movie “The Heart is Deceitful Above all Else.” He says she sexually assaulting him in a hotel when he was 17. Argento says it never happened, but at that time, Bourdain urged her to pay Bennett $380,000 anyway to “deal compassionately” with Bennett’s demand for money.

Argento is a judge on an Italian version of the X Factor and may be booted from the show because of the allegation.

Why this Matters: Argento is a luciferian/satanist who is raising her children to follow the Devil. Her Instagram feed contains many Illuminati and pedophile symbols. She is not alone–many stars proudly display the same symbolism. Can their actions be far behind their messages?

South Africa Begins Seizing White-Owned Farms

The South African government has begun an effort to compensate for decades of apartheid by seizing white-owned farms to give them to blacks. In exchange the government was offering farmers 1/10th of the farm’s value. Now the government is about to amend the constitution to allow for the expropriation of land without compensation, calling it “within the public interest.”

  • White farmers are trying to sell their land before its seized, but no one is buying.
  • Game reserve owners say they are the first to be targeted.
  • The government is said to have a list of 139 farms it plans to seize to test out section 25 of the constitution.
  • Whites, around 9 percent of the population own 72 percent of the farm land.
  • It is estimated that each farm feeds about 3,000 people.

The president of South Africa and his allies claim they have no plans at the moment for a white “genocide.” Their wording suggests that if white farmers and property owners put up a fight, they will be killed.

Why this Matters: Apartheid was institutionalized racial segregation and oppression in South Africa from 1948 until the early 90s. When apartheid was outlawed, the government targeted 30 percent of the land owned by whites to be transferred to black South Africans. Since 1994, the government has followed a “willing seller, willing buyer” process. That is over. Even worse, a growing number of white farmers have been attacked and murdered by black South Africans.
