‘A complete rip-off’: Campaign-finance experts puzzled and stunned by Trump camp’s reported ‘money-bomb’ ploy

Older donors who gave a few hundred dollars to former President Donald Trump’s reelection campaign said they were shocked to see thousands drained from their accounts. Refund requests jumped in the final months of the campaign. The ensuing surges in credit-card-fraud claims associated with Trump got on the radar of the US’s biggest banks.

That’s all according to a New York Times investigation published Saturday that detailed a recurring-donation scheme it said was referred to as “the money bomb,” which the Trump campaign used to pad its coffers in the final months of the campaign through the GOP fundraising platform WinRed.

‘Slow-motion insurrection’: How GOP seizes election power

‘The perfect target’: Russia cultivated Trump as asset for 40 years – ex-KGB spy

Donald Trump was cultivated as a Russian asset over 40 years and proved so willing to parrot anti-western propaganda that there were celebrations in Moscow, a former KGB spy has told the Guardian.

Now 67, Shvets is a key source for American Kompromat, a new book by journalist Craig Unger, whose previous works include House of Trump, House of Putin. The book also explores the former president’s relationship with the disgraced financier Jeffrey Epstein.

TRUMP STRIKES AGAIN: WHITE HOUSE CANCELS NASA RESEARCH ON GREENHOUSE GASES

The Trump administration has taken yet another step against the global scientific community. This time NASA has fallen prey to this tyranny. The White House recently decided to stop funding NASA’s Carbon Monitoring System (CMS). This plan will affect not only the research community but also the entire living world. Closing down the CMS will threaten the ability of countries to measure global carbon flows. It will also jeopardize plans to monitor carbon emissions reductions, which are an important part of the Paris Climate Accords. Let us learn more about what this change will mean for the fight against climate change.

Paradise Air Hawaii

This is an awesome experience for anyone wanting to do something thrilling and different. I was looking for something fun to do to get out of the house during the Covid 19 pandemic and I found Paradise Air Hawaii. It’s such an awesome thing to do. You and your pilot will take off together and fly around Kaena Point and the North Shore area by Dillingham. They will let you fly the aircraft yourself the entire time if you really want to. They really know what they are doing and you never feel unsafe. You are masked up most of the time and while you are in the air you have a visor over your face so you can pull your mask down and smile for photos and videos. If your local or students you can get photos or videos included in your package for free. It’s a great deal. It’s a much longer experience than skydiving and you are literally flying. Definitely check this place out and give it a try.

Cooper, A. – Dal (WR)

Amari Cooper Fantasy Football Outlook (2021) (7/7) Advice: Despite plenty of other receiving options in this offense, Cooper continues to shine for fantasy purposes. Through Week 5 last year – which is when Dak went down with his injury – Cooper was the WR13 in all of fantasy football. Even with Lamb performing at a very high level right away, Cooper was still a fantastic fantasy asset to have on your roster. Heading into 2021, we should see Dallas air the ball out a ton again and Cooper’s going to be the favorite to lead this team in targets. He’s a fantastic high-end WR2 to add to your fantasy lineup.
