Since you brought it up...

You know what connects Paul Manafort and (founder of the Federalist) Ben Domenech? Fact-Based Communications (FBC Media).

FBC media did PR disguised as journalism paid for by the Malaysian government. Ben Domenech was a subcontractor for that work.
👇👇Joshua Trevino worked for the government of Malaysia alonside Fact-Based Communications or FBC Media.

Trevino's subcontractor Ben Domenech made $36,000 from the arrangement.

They called what they were doing journalism. It was really a PR campaign.
In 2011, the same year FBC Media worked their PR campaign in Malaysia, "two FBC principals led the work with Manafort: the firm's founder, longtime journalist Alan Friedman, and former CNN business news producer Eckart Sager."

cc @CheriJacobus @emlas
"Friedman’s company FBC Media was retained on a 'rolling contract'. It was paid around €150,000 every three months, sources in Kiev suggest."

The money reportedly went to an offshore account in the Seychelles.

Still, there's just something about Malaysia in all this mess. So much work going into making the DOJ investigation into the 1MDB go away. Allegedly.

There was a Trump campaign aide who registering to lobby for the Malaysian government back in May 2017.
The former deputy finance chairman of the RNC, Elliott Broidy, who said in an email, “I have done work in Malaysia over many years and know Prime Minister Najib Razak well."

Same PM Najib Razak caught up in the 1MDB scandal. The probe Broidy tried to end.
See, we're now at the point when the same author is writing hit pieces against Bob Mueller and the FBI for Tablet Magazine and The Federalist.

Those two groups don't seem like natural allies to me. Do they to anybody else? I mean, why all the agitprop?
So, what's the connection for these groups? I still go back here. Secure America Now.

It connects George Nader and Elliott Broidy. cc @emlas @NorthofGCT
ICYMI: George Nader has worked alongside president of the World Jewish Congress, Ron Lauder in the past.
Lauder gave $1.1 million to Secure America Now (SAN). John Bolton & Mike Huckabee are SAN board members. Co-founder John McLaughlin worked on Trump's campaign.

Ron Lauder's "longtime political adviser Allen Roth serves as president of Secure America Now."
The general counsel for the World Jewish Congress (WJC) is a contributor for Tablet, which I did find interesting. He's been working for Lauder for decades now.

But I'm still trying to find the root of all this.
Here we go, @emlas.

"SAN received another $2 million from the 45Committee, another pro-Trump dark money group, which is itself partly funded by other dark money groups."

But we still don't really know where the money came from, do we?
So, why the hell was Maggie Haberman saying this⬇️⬇️ in April 2017? She was the only one with a byline here. cc @emlas @ninaandtito @LincolnsBible

Sheldon Adelson and Todd Ricketts *FOUNDED* 45Committee, but we don't know that they funded it, do we?
Even a year later, the only source for 45Committee being "heavily funded" by Sheldon Adelson and the Ricketts family during the presidential campaign is ... Maggie Haberman.

The group is not required to disclose its donors.
The same Maggie Haberman who releases statements about Trump's brilliance written by ... Ron Lauder, whose longtime aide is the president of Secure America Now.

cc @LincolnsBible @emlas @ninaandtito @gametheorytoday
Did you guys know that the son of Malaysia’s Prime Minister Najib Abdul Razak is named in the Panama Papers?

You know when donations to the 45 Committee started? April 1, 2016. Right as the Panama Papers dropped! What are the odds!
Also on April 1, 2016!

"The story of how “The Wolf of Wall Street” was financed brings together Hollywood celebrities with a cast of characters mostly known for their connections to the Malaysian prime minister."

Tied to the same 1MDB scandal! Go figure!
"Two Hollywood producers, Steven J. Brown and J. David Williams, had close ties to Broidy and are connected via various business dealings — including film projects — to Paul Manafort's business partner Rick Gates."

Woah! So, maybe it's unrelated, except..
If it's unrelated, why all the hit pieces on law enforcement?

Maybe because you're all money laundering traitors, huh? Could that be why you hate Bob Mueller and the FBI so much?

Because it sure looks like the answer to me.
Yep, I think this explains a lot, and you've been scrambling ever since. Haven't you? Because Trump wasn't supposed to win, and none of you were supposed to have all this scrutiny.
And your PR gal at the @nytimes is out there trying to clean up the mess.

But she's not really cut out for the job, is she? So you just keep attacking law enforcement and hope it somehow works out?

Yeah, good luck traitors. You'll need it. You too, Mags.
April 19 2016:

"A delegation of the World Jewish Congresmss (WJC) and the Russian Jewish Congress (RJC), led by WJC President Ronald S. Lauder, met with Russian President Vladimir Putin at the Kremlin."

But WHY, @ericgarland?
"As Trump tells it, the idea for his first trip to Moscow came after he found himself seated next to the Soviet ambassador Yuri Dubinin. This was in autumn 1986; the event was a luncheon held by Leonard Lauder."

Ron Lauder's older brother! #NoWay!
The author of this article, Paul Klebnikov, was murdered in Moscow in 2004.

The Kremlin blamed Chechens.
But the Kremlin (under Putin) always blames the Chechens.

Do with that what you will.
🖕🖕🖕🖕 Mobsters.

Do what you gotta do.
You know what, we're already here, so let's keep the dance going, @PutinRF.

Notice the date here. It was less than a week before the 2016 US election, and Ron Lauder was in Moscow at an event hosted by the Russian Jewish Congress.

Which means the Alfa oligarchs were involved.
You know why people got all up in arms about @20committee writing this article? Because there are a large number of Russian Jewish oligarchs (mobsters) who do business with Donald Trump.

But if you mention this proven fact, they yell "anti-Semitism."
It is cover, and it's one these MOBSTERS have used for a very long time. Deal w/ it.

Ron Lauder is the Russian mob. Mikhail Fridman? Russian mob. Len Blavatnik? Russian mob. German Khan? Russian mob. Bibi Netanyahu? Russian mob. Donald Trump? Russian mob.
Vladimir Putin? Russian mob. Semion Mogilevich? Russian mob.

Alfa Group & Ron Lauder

Semion Mogilevich = Alpha
Ron Lauder = Omega

Come at me RIS.

GRU know I'm right.
Predictable Chekists. You do love your symbolism. Don't ya?
Your coup has failed, mobsters. We're coming for your money.

Sucks to suck.

One CODA, just ICYMI.

Yes, I've done my research. #ThoughtsAndPrayers for all your shattered dreams, Russian mob.

Lots of images of POTUS with 'Women for Trump' signs in the background. The 'Women for Trump' group was co-founded by ... Roger Stone's ex-wife.

Because of course it was.
This is worth remembering when Trump blames Soros next time.

From 2016:

"In addition to spearheading Women Vote Trump, Ann Stone sits on the advisory board of the Committee to Restore America’s Greatness, the pro-Trump super PAC run by her ex, Roger."
Here are a few details I thought were worth adding.

Women Vote Trump became ➡️ Women for Trump

Co-founded by Roger Stone's ex-wife / now business partner Ann Stone.

The Kremlin ran this story yesterday, FTR.
The story RT ran yesterday is right here:
RT and Sputnik have been running similar articles blaming opposition to Kavanaugh on Soros since shortly after Trump nominated him. It's what they do.

What's interesting is in this particular article Sputnik links to another article from The Daily Caller.

Mark Judge wrote an article in February 2016 in which he said people who hate Ted Cruz are just "virtue signalling" and don't have legitimate reasons for opposing Ted Cruz.


There's a flaw in that logic though...
I don't see Bob Dole as much of a virtue signaller. Do you?

Mark Judge, Chuck Johnson and John Bolton have the same
book publisher?

Because of course they do.
Encounter Books is also celebrating their 20th anniversary by giving Rebekah Mercer an award. Lol

Editor and publisher of Encounter Books is a big fan of Steve Bannon too.

Mark Judge writes for Brent Bozell's "Christian" media empire, which is funded by Mercer money.

Cambridge Analytica, which worked for Ted Cruz's presidential campaign before Donald Trump's, was also funded Mercer money.

Mark Judge's connection to Brent Bozell's @cnsnews seen in this thread:
@cnsnews Brent Bozell endorsed Ted Cruz for president in July 2015:

In an effort to discredit Christine Ford, @McAllisterDen posted a video from Alt-Right YouTube (BitChute) today.

The problem? The creator of the video attacking Dr. Ford was banned from YouTube for pushing the conspiracy theory that claimed David Hogg was a “crisis actor.”
From February 2018:

'YouTube is taking down conspiracy theorist channels and popular gun videos'

Bombard's Body Language was one of those accounts. That's the creator of the video attacking Christine Ford that @McAllisterDen decided to share today.

It's worth noting that @McAllisterDen was on @seanhannity's radio show twice this week to talk about Brett Kavanaugh & Christine Ford.

Did Hannity encourage you to discredit Christine Ford, Denise?

Before you dismiss that as a "crazy conspiracy theory," ask Seth Rich's parents.
