Twitter Sleuth DawsonSField on a $40 billion money laundering case that is getting little attention in the US.

https://twitter.com/dawsonsfield/status/1110498990443757568?s=21

There are ties to Marc Rich’s (the fugitive who Clinton pardoned) old company. If you go further back into Fields timeline you will see a report that one of Rich’s descendants committed suicide last week.

I don’t know if Trump has anything to do with the release of the Panama Papers but if he did then it sure does fit in nicely with the 4D Chess Theory. In order for Trump to defeat his Swamp enemies he has to stop the corruption of the banks and lobbyists funding them.

“Trump and Republicans seek to turn the tables in post-Mueller Washington”

Accurate story, but the title is just another spin off of “Republicans pounce.”

Charges against ‘Empire’ actor Jussie Smollett dropped

Tom R

The 4D Chess Swamp draining strategy also targets academia, the breeding ground for the Progressive/SJW movement.

I wonder how many other prestigious universities are guilty of publishing falsified research to get federal grants? Michael Mann at Penn State should be worried.

Combine this news with the Varsity Blues admissions scandal and I think we have a sign that Trump is attacking the Left on all fronts. Funny how the timing of this is all happening now.

Sandy Daze

His attorneys released a statement saying,
“Today, all criminal charges against Jussie Smollett were dropped and his record has been wiped clean of the filing of this tragic complaint against him. Jussie was attacked by two people he was unable to identify on January 29th. He was a victim who was vilified and made to appear as a perpetrator as a result of false and inappropriate remarks made to the public causing an inappropriate rush to judgment.”

The statement continued,
“Jussie and many others were hurt by these unfair and unwarranted actions. This entire situation is a reminder that there should never be an attempt to prove a case in the court of public opinion. That is wrong. It is a reminder that a victim, in this case Jussie, deserves dignity and respect. Dismissal of charges against the victim in this case was the only just result.”

They concluded,
“Jussie is relieved to have this situation behind him and is very much looking forward to getting back to focusing on his family, friends and career.”

Melinda

Mayoral candidate Lightfoot was a US Atty for Northern Dist Of IL, NOT an IL States Attorney, which Kym Foxx is and who actually chucked the the State’s charges against Smollett. Kym Foxx was both a WH asst in Moochelle’s office, and, no doubt, a travel companion, but also Toni Preckwinkle’s assistant, and politically beholden primarily to Toni. She would not lift a finger without specific instructions from Toni.

Oh, have I mentioned that Toni’s original lead following the primary has not only shrunk, but turned entirely against her and is now losing badly. She is desperate. Expect finger pointing and blame, Smollett would be perceived as baggage and was thusly dropped.

This is in no way over.

From Suffolk County (Boston) DA Rachael Rollins' new
policy memo that outlines new policies that dramatically change the way we approach criminal prosecution in Suffolk County, we find this little nugget:
"With the assistance of immigration counsel, our office will begin to factor into all charging and sentencing decisions the potential of immigration consequences."

MM,

Palm Beach is the winter HQ for all the Hampton's in-crowd. We love to visit. Just played a round of golf at Seminole, the ultimate bide-a-way for the more fortunate of us like Michael Bloomberg, for example. Not too far away is that massage parlor made famous a few weeks back by Robert Kraft among others:)

But it is expensive, very Democrat party stronghold (at least the county), and as a result the smell of corruption. If I was too pick a spot further south it would be Key Biscayne. Not as expensive, and you get around on golf carts.

BoE,

Seminole is a unique course. You can just about see every hole no matter where you are on the course. Windswept, lots of sand waste areas, similar in a way to Pine Valley but not as hilly, although there are plenty of raised greens and even downhill tee shots. Last 3 holes run along the oceanside.

Understated clubhouse but with exceptional service, food, and a terrific pro-shop. Walker Cup is their next year, but I think like when at National, only about 5K tickets will be available. Definitely a walker's course. Caddies of course. Most are Shinnecock and National caddies in the summer.

Every year on the Monday after the Honda at PGA National, there is a big Pro-Am for the tour & Seminole members. According to people I know there, it is really competitive. Used to have a huge Calcutta but the membership finally stopped that. Milliions in the pot.

Threadkiller

A caller to Trump went all 4D and explained that the police superintendent is as dirty a player as the rest of them. He suggests that Eddie was reading a script at the earlier press conference so the DA would be able to say the case against Jussie was tainted by Eddie's remarks.

It was a setup.

Listening to a podcast. He makes the following points:

1. Sarah Sanders talking about treason and the death penalty.
2. President talking about treason.
3. Obama being very quiet in press.
4. Trump gets a clean bill of health on Russian hoax.
5. Obama and Michelle would be fools to stick their necks out over a second rate actor.
6. Records sealed.

His conclusion is that Smollett has given up someone else. Given his connection to Geragos, he could know something.

I am offering this as an alternative way to look at this. I am NOT vested in one position, but this seems so blatant that surely there is something we don't know.

I’m still worried about the access that Mueller and the Angry Dems (sounds like a hip-hop Band) have had to evidence over the last two years. Did their position give them power to destroy evidence against democrats? What other obstruction-of-justice and coverup tools would they have had as part of the status of the SC office?

(Like we know about the stuff that Sandy Berger took out of the Archive boxes when that stuff was paper copies of things that the Archives already had saved in another place/form. We’ll never know what he stole out of boxes that was uncataloged and the only copy was in the boxes. Did the Mueller Band have the ability to destroy all copies of any evidence?)
