Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

What's up with her EMAILS?
"How I Lost By Hillary Clinton is a collection of the DNC and Podesta EMAILS published by Wikileaks in 2016, introduced and annotated by Consortium News Editor Joe Lauria, with a foreword by political prisoner Julian Assange. Believe it or not, you don't have to buy it from Amazon unless you want to toss a few more dollars into the bursting coffers of Jeff Bezos, the world's richest man, who says his only business option now is to search for new markets in outer space. [...]Anyone remember "Night of the Living Dead" (1968), "Dawn of the Dead" (1978), "Day of the Dead" (1985), and "Land of the Dead" (2005)? Still watching "The Walking Dead" (2010-) or its spinoff "Fear the Walking Dead" (2015-)? Another grisly sequel or series could be coming soon. "How I Lost by Hillary Clinton" might fortify your psychic battlements before it begins."

What's up with his PRIVACY?
"On Thursday, Bezos published EMAILS in which the Enquirer's parent company explicitly threatened to publish intimate photographs of Bezos and his mistress, which were apparently exchanged between the two through their iPhones, unless Bezos agreed to a series of demands involving silence about the company's conduct. [...] Beyond the prurient interest in sex scandals, this case entails genuinely newsworthy questions because of its political context. The National Enquirer was so actively devoted to Donald Trump's election that the chairman of its parent company admitted to helping make hush payments to kill stories of Trump's affairs, and received immunity for his cooperation in the criminal case of Trump lawyer Michael Cohen, while Bezos, as the owner of the steadfastly anti-Trump Washington Post, is viewed by Trump as a political enemy."

Diversity is the key to economic and political evolution.

Reporting sexcapades of the rich and famous in the USA is positively infantile.

Bezos hush money extortion campaign finance violation Blackmail Shocker Puts National Enquirer [sic] Deal in Jeopardy
reporter makes out like the company, AMI, is enjoined by PECKER's plea agreement with MUELLER. yeah, no. No intelligent US attorney is going to bind the press', a publisher's, 1st amendment right to a criminal indictment. Not yet, but, soon, maybe.

In fact, MUELLERs's name isn't mentioned at all in the story -- that lede is buried in a link specifically to David PECKER, copping the plea to campaign finance violation [corroborating COHEN's plea] to avoid his own conviction. And wonder of wonder's STORMY DANIELS isn't mentioned either.

One of those repercussions could be the end of a ["]nonprosecution agreement["] that American Media Inc. [sic], the National Enquirer's parent company, struck with federal prosecutors this past August.
His name was hinted in federal court this week as part of the plea deal taken by another Trump's former personal lawyer, Michael Cohen.
[...]
The report of Pecker's immunity deal broke Thursday after Fox News aired the first sit-down interview with Trump since the White House suffered the twin bombshells Tuesday of Cohen pleading guilty and former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort being found guilty of financial crimes.
Bezos hired a private investigator to acquire email between National Enquirer "executives" after the publication of Bezos-Sanchez email. The only way anyone is certain that trash talk about a threatening Bezos "dick pick [sic]" exists anywhere is because Bezos admitted it. Chump. His dossier of dick pics has gone missing? Where is his estranged wife, btw?
< wipes tears > Accordingly, Bezos' sympathetic reporter escalates the import of his 'DICK PIC's.
The geopolitical fallout of possible prosecution is also an open question.

In his blog post, Bezos said that he had looked into "various actions" PECKER and his company have taken on behalf of the Saudi government.

If I prayed, I'd pray Avenatti haunts the primary season on a book tour, timing every signing event and venue with the dates of each state's poll.

Diversity is the key to economic and political evolution.
