Very Interesting - Avanett's new client Alexandra Chalupa

Michael Avenatti
‏Verified account @MichaelAvenatti

Michael Avenatti Retweeted Vox

I am now representing Alexandra Chalupa in connection with investigating and pursuing possible legal claims against Manafort, Trump and other affiliated individuals. She was targeted with baseless, bogus allegations, all designed to distract away from Trump’s Russian collusion.

Also in the past, her sister Andrea Chalupa said: “After my sister visited Paul Manafort's hometown as part of her investigation: attempted home break-in, her phone/comp. Hacked, car trashed.

Yes, there had been an “attempted home break-in” last year, in her leafy, virtually crime-free neighborhood of northwest Washington, D.C., as Politico’s Kenneth P. Vogel and David Stern reported in January. Her iPhone was hacked, too, and a death-metal track popular in Russia appeared on her playlist. Her car was broken into and trashed twice, with nothing stolen. The second time, the burglar left a red, traditional Ukrainian blouse draped across the back seat. She reported the incidents to the D.C. police and FBI, which by then had opened a counterintelligence investigation into Russian subversion. No arrests have been made.

Woman says she was paid to collect absentee ballots in North Carolina House race

Ginger Eason told WSOCTV, a local news station in Charlotte, that Leslie McCrae Dowless, Jr. paid her between $75 and $100 to pick up completed absentee ballots for North Carolina's 9th District, the results of which are being officially investigated.

“I was helping McCrae pick up ballots,” Eason said to the news outlet, referring to the Bladen County Soil and Water Conservation District supervisor who appears to be at the center of the probe.

Eason added that she didn't see who people were voting for, but that she never mailed the ballots. Instead, she gave them to Dowless, adding that he did not mention to her that what she was doing was illegal.

When asked by WSOCTV about paying people to pick up ballots, Dowless said that he had no comment.

OMG! Racist Gov of Mississippi defends Hyde-Smith - calls black abortions "Black Genocide"

Governor Calls Abortion ‘Black Genocide,’ Defends Hyde-Smith on ‘Hanging’ Tape

JACKSON — As state and national controversy swirls around U.S. Sen. Cindy Hyde-Smith’s comment about a “public hanging” in her race against an African American opponent, Gov. Phil Bryant opened a press conference this morning implying that black women are participating in “the genocide of 20 million African American children” through legal abortions.

“See, in my heart, I am confused about where the outrage is at about 20 million African American children that have been aborted. No one wants to say anything about that. No one wants to talk about that,” Bryant said, with Hyde-Smith and National Right to Life President Carol Tobias standing nearby.

It is absurd that a governor in a state that has one of the worst maternal and infant mortality rates in the country, where it is one of the most dangerous places for women to give birth—black women to give birth, specifically—would talk about abortion being black genocide,” Mississippi Reproductive Freedom Fund Executive Director Laurie Bertram-Roberts said today.

“First of all, black women are not committing genocide when the same women he’s talking about are the mothers of black children,” she said. “To commit genocide, you have to be trying to eliminate a race of people. By definition, that cannot be black mothers. The majority of women who have abortions are also mothers. … Number two, Phil Bryant has never made a policy or endorsed a policy that helps black babies in this state.”

Turkish sources say killing took 7 minutes for Khashoggi to die, horrendous screams

Tubaigy began to cut Khashoggi’s body up on a table in the study while he was still alive, the Turkish source said.

The killing took seven minutes, the source said.

As he started to dismember the body, Tubaigy put on earphones and listened to music. He advised other members of the squad to do the same.

“When I do this job, I listen to music. You should do [that] too,” Tubaigy was recorded as saying, the source told MEE.

A three-minute version of the audio tape has been given to Turkish newspaper Sabah, but they have yet to release it.

Hurricane Michael and Red Tide toxins - can be positive or negative

Karelia braves is the red tide organism that effects the nervous system "just like pesticides." Particles going miles inland in the wind.

SARASOTA — Dissipating red tide could get an unwanted stir from Hurricane Michael this week as it passes Southwest Florida, where deadly algae has persisted offshore for a year.

Offshore winds are expected to continue until Michael passes, and then shift toward the shore, potentially spitting sea spray with the airborne red tide organism, Karenia brevis, onshore. These are the same conditions that have brought scores of dead fish onto area beaches in recent months, along with breathing problems for beachgoers.

“We don’t really know exactly what is going to happen,” said Richard Pierce, an ecotoxicologist and senior scientist at Mote Marine Laboratory. “There have been instances where a hurricane dispersed red tide so it didn’t come back. There have been times when it stirred things up and it brought more nutrients to the area and red tide came back worse than it was.”

Interesting video.

OMG!! LDS Church president urges Mormon women (not men) to take a 10 day fast from social media

Could it be because Mormon Women for Ethical Government says it has 6,000 members opposing Judge Kavanaugh?

"... I invite you to participate in a 10-day fast from social media and from any other media that bring negative and impure thoughts to your mind," Nelson said. "Pray to know which influences to remove during your fast. The effect of your 10-day fast may surprise you. What do you notice after taking a break from perspectives of the world that have been wounding your spirit? Is there a change in where you now want to spend your time and energy? Have any of your priorities shifted—even just a little? I urge you to record and follow through with each impression.

US Food Brands Petition EPA to Ban Pre-Harvest Glyphosate Spraying

The Environmental Working Group, joined by food and nutrition companies including MegaFood, Ben & Jerry’s, Stonyfield Farm, MOM’s Organic Market, Nature’s Path, One Degree Organic Foods, National Co+op Grocers and Happy Family Organics, petitioned the Environmental Protection Agency on Thursday to sharply limit glyphosate residues allowed on oats and prohibit the pesticide’s use as a pre-harvest drying agent.

Glyphosate, the active ingredient in Monsanto’s Roundup, is mostly used as a weedkiller on genetically modified corn and soybeans. But it is also increasingly sprayed on oats just before harvest as a drying agent, or desiccant. Glyphosate kills the crop, drying it out so that it can be harvested sooner than if the plant were allowed to die naturally. This allows easier harvesting but also increases the likelihood that the pesticide makes it into foods.


(GROSS -Pre-Harvest glyphosate spraying is also done in Florida on the sugar cane crop for sweeter sugar. Glyphosate also feeds algae and red tides.)

Kavanaugh vandalizing a car while drunk at Yale - one of thousands of tips

One document likely in the stack would be a notarized statement submitted to the FBI Tuesday by a truck owner, who allegedly confronted an inebriated college student who was “smashing the black cargo box” in the bed of his parked Ford Courier on a New Haven, Conn., street in the fall of 1986.

“I yelled again at the person, and realized it was Brett Kavanaugh,” reads the statement, which goes on to allege that the future Supreme Court nominee, “uncontrollably, incoherently drunk,” later refused to pay for the damage when confronted over the incident at meeting of Truth and Courage, the secret society both Yale undergraduates belonged to. Judge Kavanaugh, through his attorney, denies the incident took place.
