Prediction fulfilled

On May 11, I predicted that the Republicans were going to "Me Too" Michael Avenatti within the month. Prediction fulfilled. The story on the other end is just the beginning, as Avenatti himself seems to know, based on some rather cryptic remarks he has made. He probably thinks that he can handle what's about to wallop him. That's what Al Franken thought. All men have a breaking point, no matter how tough they seem.

I'm sorry to be a downer, but decent people cannot combat utter ruthlessness backed by massive resources.
In lieu of missing blonde cheerleaders the cable news outlets will glom onto the latest juicy bit to feed the gaping 24/7 maw. Remember this is the same print and broadcast news media that trashed Al Gore with lies and distortions giving Bush the Lesser the White House and us 911.
The BBC have described the second meeting between Kim Jong-un and Moon Jae-in as "Hollywood".

Isn't "Hollywood" part of that brand new settler city with the Spanish name in North America, home to some newish means of communication or other?

Does anyone at the BBC have a clue about what is actually going on in these images of top-level intra-Korean meetings? Start with the mountains - do they have any fucking idea of the significance of mountains?

Do they have any appreciation of what Korean unification, or even only a peace treaty, might look like? Instead we get the regurgitation of phrases like "denuclearisation" and "reduction of tensions". It kind of interests me how the British foreign policy establishment abounds in Arabists, has some serious Russianists, and they love China to bits (maybe they have done since Britain modelled its civil service on the Chinese one in the 1870s?), but as for Korea, a country of similar age to China - and which kicks arse in various fields - their understanding seems woefully superficial. Whatever happened to the School of Oriental and African Studies in London :-) No demand from the FCO and SIS Korea desks or what?

As for Trump, when he called off the Singapore summit he said (in his announcement but not in his letter) that he'd got Japan onside. Apparently Japan's going to help pay for the US to whack Korea if it needs to. Did they plot out how that boast would be received in Korea?

If Trump's main goal is to stand behind Kim Jong-un and Moon Jae-in as if he were Bill Clinton behind Yasser Arafat and Yitzhak Rabin, THAT IS NOT GOING TO HAPPEN.
I can't believe you are taking seriously the wife's claims in a fault divorce filing.
Michael, what on earth makes you say that? Your words have nothing to do with what I wrote.
Wives complain of spousal abuse in divorce filings all the time. ALL the time. It is standard operating procedure, designed to give her the advantage in the eventual settlement. The claims may be true at some level, but Lacking serious corroborative evidence, nobody actually believes these claims.

IOW, this is a typical divorce, not a #metoo claim. It would be laughable for the Trumpies to to try and "trump" this up into something else.
Jesus fucking Christ, Michael. Comments like yours make me despair. I feel as though it is impossible to compose a sentence that cannot be misconstrued. WHERE did I say that I personally believed that Avenatti was guilty of spousal abuse? What on earth made you think that I wanted my readers to come to that conclusion?

I see no point in writing further. To anyone. About anything.
