Rinse and Repeat

On Saturday, The New York Times published a terrific short primer (link here) about the many dubious domestic and international real estate deals in which Donald Trump and his business have been involved in recent years. The piece is titled "The Business Deals That Could Imperil Trump" and was written by Peter Fritsch and Glenn Simpson, former journalists who now investigate shady businesses for corporate clients.

Their premise is straightforward. After multiple bankruptcies in 1990s and 2000s, Trump was unable to find conventional financing for projects. He almost entirely abandoned real estate development and, instead, licensed his name to anyone willing to pay a price.

Yet on nearly every project, Trump partnered with extremely dubious individuals, all of whom were either directly or indirectly involved in money laundering and/or other illegal activities. Of the direct development in which Trump was still involved, many of the buyers were foreign nationals, particularly Russians, who bought with shell companies.

If you go down the list of all of Trump's projects in the last two decades, virtually every single one involves at least one partner with some kind of suspicious history. As the Fritsch/Simpson piece notes, a business can't just look the other way when conducting business with dodgy people; federal law requires due diligence, which it does not appear Trump and company every much conducted.

These are inconvenient truths for Trump's dwindling number of supporters and Republicans in Congress who still back the President.

For the nation, above and beyond the issue of having an extremely dodgy businessman in the Oval Office, Trump's many shady business partners put the country at risk. Trump could easily be blackmailed about one or several of these projects -- and may already have been done so -- and he could also make decisions as President for the benefit of his own businesses and partners and not the country. There is considerble evidence to suggest that has already happened.

Hopefully, Special Counsel Robert Mueller and his team are examining these matters as part of the criminal investigation into Trump, and there are signs they have been doing so. As well, the US Attorney for the Southern District of New York may also be examining these matters as part of their investigation into Michael Cohen, Trump's lawyer/fixer who is likely to be charged in the near future with a number of crimes.

If Congress had any sense of responsibility, they would also be investigating these matters and holding public hearings. Unfortunately, until Republicans lose control of at least one chamber of that body, no investigation will be forthcoming.

That's why it's so important that everyone who is not registered to vote does so and votes this November. Matters this grave cannot be ignored much longer.

Gansey

This lad, purportedly named Gansey, is what I call ordinary bloke hot. He's not movie idol hot but he's well above average with a muscular, fuzzy bod and sweet face. He's definitely a keeper. The releasing studio doesn't provide much information, other than the fact that he's 32 and from São Paulo, Brazil. Based on his proportions to the furniture, I'm guessing he's about 5'10.

Moscow Nights

The James Comey memos released earlier this week discuss in part the so-called Steele Dossier by a former MI6 covert operative who details a number of salacious and scandalous claims about Donald Trump, many of which have been proven to be true. But one alleged "golden showers" incident became a Trump obsession.

The dossier claims that Trump consorted with prostitutes in a Moscow hotel suite where he ordered them to urinate on a bed that had once been used by President and First Lady Obama during a previous visit. This was one of several different alleged Trump assignations with prostitutes in Russia, all of which were allegedly recorded secretly and could be or already have been used to blackmail him.

As the Comey memos reveal, Trump insisted he did not stay overnight in Moscow on the night the golden showers incident supposedly took place. But as Talking Points Memo documented on Friday (link here), that is an easily disproven lie.

Trump spent not one but two nights in Moscow when the incident is said to have occurred, as the linked article (with further source links) details with FAA filings and more.

Proving Trump was actually in Moscow when he says he wasn't does not prove that the urination incident took place. But as the Talking Points Memo item notes, why is Trump lying about this trip?

If nothing happened, why so many lies about not being in Moscow?

Lawsuit

Yesterday, the Democratic National Committee filed a lawsuit against Donald Trump's 2016 campaign operation, Trump's son Don Jr., and Trump's son-in-law Jared Kushner, as well as against a number of other entities and officials, including Russia's spy agencies and various senior Trump campaign staffers (details here).

The lawsuit charges the campaign and others with running a complex conspiracy to disrupt the 2016 campaign, breaching the DNC's secure systems, and distorting the electoral process with rampant dishonest and illegal activity. The DNC filed a similar lawsuit after the 1972 election when it was revealed Richard Nixon's campaign had repeaedly engaged in illegal activity targeting Democrats.

"This constituted an act of unprecedented treachery: the campaign of a nominee for President of the United States in league with a hostile foreign power to bolster its own chance to win the presidency," the DNC chairman said in a prepared statement released at the time the suit was filed.

While Trump's campaign and allies allege the lawsuit is not serious, it is worth noting that the DNC won their similar lawsuit in 1974, two years after it was filed, when the Nixon campaign settled and paid $750,000 in damages.

With this type of litigation, the ultimate outcome is not particularly important. What is potentially important are the various documents the DNC will be able to pry from the Trump campaign by using subpoeanas during the discovery process.

We can't expect anything really soon on this suit but more will likely in about a year. Stay tuned.

A Beautiful Man

The stunning bottom in this video went by Tomas Kukal and also John in porn. He has a fantastic body and a sweet, kindly face. Sadly, he was only in porn for a few years and did about a dozen scenes. He retired in 2014.

The Memos

Last night, the Associated Press published seven of the now famous file memos written by former FBI Director James Comey to document his meetings with and phone calls from Donald Trump in the earliest months of his presidency (details here, memo copies here).

While scattered details about these memos have been published by the media ever since they were first known to exist shortly after Comey was fired by Trump to stop the Russia scandal investigation, as he admitted on camera to NBC's Lester Holt, this is the first time the actual memos have been seen by the public.

Their release provides some important new information.

For instance, Trump repeatedly urged Comey to see that journalists who published leaked details were prosecuted, a process that would blatantly violate the First Amendment. Comey documented that Trump said reporters would be more willing to identify their sources after they had spent a few nights behind bars.

The Comey memos also reveal that Trump admitted he had "serious reservations" about the "judgment" of fired (and now indicted) National Security Advisor Michael Flynn. Nonetheless, Trump continued to support him until other issues created a public controversy.

The memos also document Trump's now infamous demand that Comey pledge his personal loyalty to the President, something the FBI Director declined to do.

Not surprisingly, Trump-loyal Republicans on Capitol Hill have crowed that the released memos vindicate the President and show no obstruction of justice. More neutral parties, however, say the opposite is true.

A careful reading of the memos show that they, indeed, are clearly not a vindication and also confirm the President's unconstitional instincts.

Living Large

The top here goes by XL in porn and has been working sporadically since 2011 as both a bottom and a top. In the last few month, he's stepped up his appearances, for whatever reason. He's also sporting a leaner muscular look and a way-hot full beard.

The Warning

The Wall Street Journal broke the story last night (link here, mirror without paywall here) that Donald Trump's now retired longtime lawyer, who represented him for decades, has warned the President that his current attorney and fixer Michael Cohen, whose offices were raided by the FBI and now faces possible criminal charges, will cooperate with prosecutors and flip on his client.

The long-time lawyer, Jay Goldberg, according to the article, "cautioned the President not to trust Cohen. On a scale of 100 to 1, where 100 is fully protecting the president, Cohen 'isn’t even a 1,' he said he told Trump." Goldberg spoke directly to The Wall Street Journal on the record to confirm the call.

The piece goes on to note that Goldberg "said the volume of correspondence taken and the potential pressure the government can bring to bear on Mr. Cohen to testify put the president in more potential peril from the Cohen matter than from special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation."

While Cohen has made public statements that he would never betray Trump, Goldberg isn't buying things would stay that way, given federal prosecutors in Manhattan have a long history of flipping reluctant mob witnesses.

If Cohen does eventually flip, this could be as significant as when Richard Nixon's lawyer John Dean flipped on him and sang like a birdie to prosecutors -- or possibly even bigger. Dean arguably did the most damage to the President of the many witnesses who testified against him.

Of course, all this discussion compels us to ask "If Trump didn't break any laws nor commit any crimes, why is he so worried that the Cohen investigation will be his undoing?"

Thug Life

This beefy musclestud goes by Owen, at least in porn world. The releasing studio provided utterly no personal information about him other than to say he was eager to film scenes with other lads, which pretty much is a guarantee we'll see him in hardcore action. He may have been in the military at one time but not recently with those tattooed lower arms. Now he looks like a white rapper.

Whistling Past the Graveyard

The American Prospect published an excellent piece yesterday (link here) with the title "Trump’s Impotent Rage" and the subtitle "The window for firing Rosenstein or Mueller, and getting away with it, has closed."

Special Counsel Robert Mueller, who leads the criminal investigation into Donald Trump and his associates, brilliantly played the President when he handed off investigation of Trump's lawyer/fixer Michael Cohen to the U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of New York. The latter looks likely now to charge him with no less than bank fraud, wire fraud, and violations of campaign finance law and possibly much more.

So if Trump ordered subordinates to fire Mueller, the Cohen investigation and prosecution continues untouched because it's in an entirely separate office and can't be stopped by the President nor the Justice Department.

As the Prospect piece notes: "A President with broad political support might have illusions of quashing all such investigations, but Trump lacks the political support, and firing Rosenstein and Mueller would further erode what remains of his political backing, even among Republicans."

The piece moves on to discuss what the writer calls "a long-deferred crisis for the Republican Party" -- specifically, the Trump millstone hanging around collective GOP necks. They have been whistling past the graveyard for so long when it comes to Trump's behavior and corruption that they're now in a very bad place and an angry majority of voters is staring them down.

The Prospect article brought to mind another excellent piece that ran in The New Yorker over the weekend (link here) with the title "Michael Cohen and the End Stage of the Trump Presidency."

There, the writer notes "there are lots of details and surprises to come, but the endgame of this presidency seems as clear now as those of Iraq and the financial crisis did months before they unfolded....This is the week we know, with increasing certainty, that we are entering the last phase of the Trump Presidency. This doesn’t feel like a prophecy; it feels like a simple statement of the apparent truth."

Trump is in a corner with nowhere to go. This is the final act of his presidential farce. The final act may go on a long time -- far too long, in fact.

But it won't get any better for him. And, almost certainly, a lot worse. It will the darkest just before dawn. Stay tuned.

Devastating Defeat

Yesterday afternoon, a federal judge in Manhattan handed down a evastating defeat for Donald Trump and his attorney/fixer Michael Cohen (details here), the latter whose offices were raided by the FBI last week. Cohen's attorneys filed for an emergency restraining order last week to stop prosecutors from reviewing the seized and voluminous material.

Yesterday's ruling blocked that attempt, meaning prosecutors and not Trump nor Cohen are in the driver's seat on this matter. Trump is one of Cohen's only three clients, so the presumption is that a significant majority of the seized material relates to the President.

Various news outlets have already reported that Cohen, who is now the subject if a federal criminal investigation, was an essential facilitator in white collar crime on behalf of Trump. It has been widely reported that Trump now fears the Cohen matter will be his undoing, not the Mueller investigation. The case is being handled by the Manhattan Division of the US Attorneys' Office.

Cohen's files, now in the hands of federal investigators, may turn out to hold the smoking gun that ends the Trump presidency. Stay tuned.

Cuddly Muscle

This is Luke aka Wes, who has been featured in previous blog posts. He's not the biggest of lads but he's nonetheless put together like a Greek god. He's originally from Amarillo, Texas, stands 5'8, and weighs in at 165 pounds. I do not know of him doing any other porn than solo jerkoff shoots.
