David Bogatin, a 38-year-old former Soviet Army pilot and Russian émigré who arrived in America seven years earlier with just $3 in his pocket, pays $6 million for five condominium units in a luxurious new Manhattan high-rise, Trump Tower. At the time, Russian mobsters were beginning to invest in high-end US real estate as a way to launder money from their criminal enterprises.

EDIT & FYI:

In 2006, the year he reportedly began working for Deripaska, Manafort bought a condo in Trump Tower for $3,675,000 through an LLC called John Hannah. John is Manafort’s middle name, and Hannah is the middle name of that of his then-business partner, Rick Davis.

Pharma Bro Martin Shkreli must go through psychiatric exam :NYDN


Source: New York Daily News

This bro’s got issues.

A federal judge has signed an order for a psychiatric exam for convicted Pharma Bro Martin Shkreli, just days after yanking his $5 million bail, court records show.

Brooklyn Federal Judge Kiyo Matsumoto signed off on the test for the 34-year-old on Tuesday, according to court records.

The reason for the exam and who requested it remains a mystery, as the motion is sealed and not available to the public.

Matsumoto ordered Shkreli held without bail on Sept. 13, after he posted a screed on Facebook offering a $5,000 bounty for a strand of Hillary Clinton’s hair.

He insisted the Facebook post was a joke, and wrote a letter apologizing to the court, but the judge wasn’t swayed.

Shkreli — who hiked the price of an AIDS drug from $13.50 to $750 a pill when he ran Turing Pharmaceuticals — was convicted in August of securities fraud and a related conspiracy count.

We see Vermont Senator very differently. That's a fact. Can we still UNITE?

Am NOT INTERESTED in bashing him, believe me I AM NOT, since am not interested in the guy.

I am progressive and liberal. And I am a proud DEM!

I mean well for us DEMS & our country which I did serve years ago.

We can still be "unified" in other aspects. Can't we?

We should find what unite us. Any ideas?

I know how important UNITY is to everyone here!

Viva la Vida UNITED!



Note: This post is about finding other areas that do unite us.

California legislature passes bill requiring presidential candidates to release tax returns



http://thehill.com/homenews/state-watch/350789-california-legislature-passes-bill-requiring-presidential-candidates-to

The California State Assembly on Thursday passed a bill that would require all presidential candidates to release their tax returns prior to being placed on the state’s ballot.

The bill, called the Presidential Tax Transparency and Accountability Act, passed the state assembly on a 42-18 vote and will now head to the state Senate for a concurrence vote before being sent to the Governor for his signature.

“President Trump’s blatant disregard for the tradition of releasing tax returns is dangerous to our democracy,” Senator Mike McGuire (D), one of the authors of the bill, said in a statement. “For decades, every President has put their personal beliefs aside and put our country first and released their returns."

“SB 149 helps to reestablish desperately needed transparency in the White House, and we are looking forward to seeing the Governor’s signature on the bill.”

FB, YouTube, Twitter, Cambridge Analytica, Russia, the GOP & Trump. (w FULL VIDEO)

http://www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/episode/b091zhtk/secrets-of-silicon-valley-series-1-2-the-persuasion-machine (UK)


In an online BBC video, Theresa Hong, the Donald Trump campaign’s Digital Content Director, has made a number of startling confessions that she seems to think were bragging points. She’s revealed that Cambridge Analytica, the company suspected of having used voter data stolen by the Russian government to plot its online marketing strategy on Trump’s behalf, ran its operations out of the same offices where the Trump campaign itself was plotting its paid Facebook ad strategy. But the truly shocking revelation is who else she admits was in the building, which Trump’s people called “Project Alamo.”


The BBC interviewer asks Hong, “What were Facebook and Google and YouTube people actually doing here? Why were they here?” She responds by saying “They were helping us, you know. They were basically our hands-on partners as far as being able to utilize the platform as effectively as possible.” Shen then bragged “When you’re pumping in millions and millions of dollars to these social platforms, you’re going to get white glove treatment. So they would send people, you know, representatives to the Project Alamo to ensure that all our needs were being met.” Watch the shocking BBC video below

Secrets Of Silicon Valley
Series 1: 2. The Persuasion Machine


Jamie Bartlett reveals how Silicon Valley's mission to connect the world is disrupting democracy, helping plunge us into an age of political turbulence. Many of the Tech Gods were dismayed when Donald Trump - who holds a very different worldview - won the American presidency, but did they actually help him to win? With the help of a key insider from the Trump campaign's digital operation, Jamie unravels for the first time the role played by social media and Facebook's vital role in getting Trump into the White House. But how did Facebook become such a powerful player?

Jamie learns how Facebook's vast power to persuade was first built for advertisers, combining data about our internet use and psychological insights into how we think. A leading psychologist then shows Jamie how Facebook's hoard of data about us can be used to predict our personalities and other psychological traits. He interrogates the head of the big data analytics firm that targeted millions of voters on Facebook for Trump - he tells Jamie this revolution is unstoppable. But is this great persuasion machine now out of control? Exploring the emotional mechanisms that supercharge the spread of fake news on social media, Jamie reveals how Silicon Valley's persuasion machine is now being exploited by political forces of all kinds, in ways no one - including the Tech Gods who created it - may be able to stop.
