@katiezavadski “F---ing Sith Lord,” “Horrific Leakers,” & “Berserkazoid Craziness”: The Mooch Recalls His Brief Shining Fortnight at the Center of US Politics, by @WilliamCohan… Wish he’d been asked about🇷🇺sanctions, RDIF & if he now supports what he opposed at #WEF17?
This is something, coming from a guy who missed the birth of his child—& had his lawyer demand a paternity test?

Does suing CNN & forcing a journo to resign for accurate reporting have permanent benefits?
World chess body has Swiss bank accounts frozen after (Putin-linked) president is accused of links to ISIS oil deals… After @Kasparov63 failed to have him removed, maybe Team Spectre decided enough was enough—& this was the only way to take back the org?
Missed this! Senators Urge Adding (Milner’s partner) Usmanov To Official (aka cribbed from Forbes magazine?!) Oligarch List, Citing Paradise Papers… As a not subtle public message to Mueller, this could really tighten the screws on Facebook & Twitter!
How far back will Mueller go? And how far will he dig into the Paradise Papers?
It should go w/o saying that reporting on DJTJr’s divorce is appropriate, newsworthy & in the public interest.And yet!

But ffs, media, yes he’s colorful & clickable, but why give the Mooch a platform, if you won’t, whether for fear of litigation of lost access, report context?
The Mooch sued CNN & got a reporter fired for accurately reporting a story about him (& WEF & Putin & removing sanctions)....

And, here, he’s pissed that @PageSixEmily reported on his own (now abandoned) divorce proceedings—particularly his demand for a paternity test....yet...
@PageSixEmily “She Will Stop at Nothing to Hurt Innocents”: Scaramucci Goes Nuclear Over T-rump Jr. Divorce Reporting, by @kenzbry… Context: @PageSixEmily reported on his divorce.

Is it ok to report his attacks on a journalist w/o context? Why give him a platform?
@PageSixEmily @kenzbry Given⬆️, his attacks on media, plus his lawsuit against CNN (for accurately reporting on his own Putin posse relationships, which forced out a journalist) & more—I’m surprised @karaswisher not only gave him a platform, but didn’t ask about any of this!…
So Yuri Milner’s Mail.Ru not only had Facebook data access—but retained it?

Who’d ever believe Milner’s Kremlin💰investment a decade ago (saving the co!) also granted 🇷🇺/MailRu earlier/deeper access—making it harder to detect & root out?
Also this pulls together lots of TrumpRussia—but not Facebook etc? Isn’t time to add Milner, Thiel & Zuck to the Mueller mix?

How much clearer could it be that Putin recognized that FB/social media was all he needed to spread hate, misinfo & elect T-rump?…
LOL: anyone know who ‘coined’ FANG? Could there be a better SPECTRE misinfo campaign?

Focusing (our fear & media) on the FANG completely distracted us from the far more dangerous & utterly conspicuous SPECTRE.

Just like during the election. #loligarchy

Plus—while sure there’re specific stupidities that we’ve yet to hear about—none of this was ever secret—it was done openly, oft even publicly. Why wouldn’t it, given the lack of consequences for oligarchs? #RuleofLawlessness #SPECTRE #loligarchy
”The men who championed her were so pleased to meet a woman who fit an ideal mold, they never stopped to think that maybe she was an ideal mole”… If only we’d given the same focus to Anna Chapman’s relationships to #SPECTRE & SV as we are to Maria Butina’s?
As internet artifacts authored by those you’d least expect go, who can beat Travis Kalanick’s 2010 truly excellent* dive into his & Anna Chapman’s overlapping Silicon Valley social network?

*If only he’d followed up with her list of 133 LinkedIn contacts!…
Of course, why would Putin ever limit himself to just Maria Butina & Anna Chapman?

Let alone just Milner & Dmietriev

& that’s leaving aside the Mooch, Mnuchin, Schwarzmann & Goldman Sachs.

Before we even get close to Kushner & ‘45’..

& this is all just what happened in public
Have been meaning get around to running a social network analysis of the World Economic Forum’s Young Global Leaders program & just noticed this list seems to have been sharply edited , such that it now only includes “notable” members. 🤯🤬…
Putin’s ‘Consigliere’ Is Making Musk’s Dream Come True… The US is finally investigating Dmietriev, RDIF, & Magomedov—& their social networks—violations of US sanctions. Have they interviewed their WEF buddies? The Mooch? Mnuchin? Milner? Pishevar? Thiel?
I’d worried Silicon Valley kept on doing biz as if there were no Russian sanctions they’d grown accustomed to #ruleoflawlesssness &/or DOJ basically dgaf—but here’s why This is a loud warning to Thiel, Milner, Hyperloop etc—whose employees’ll flip first?
‘Coincidentally’ Thiel shared his unqualifed support for POTUS just 3 days before the Deripaska story broke. Ride or Die ‘45’? LOL if it turns out (Palantir founder who also helped staff the WH) Thiel said this BECAUSE he’s been cooperating with Mueller..
Despite those pesky sanctions, Dmietriev (Putin crony & WEF Young Global Leader) still socializes with bankers & arms traffickers in the Seycelles....& of course, has Silicon Valley investments (eg Hyperloop)…
Also, apparently Mnuchin accidentally sanctioned Deripaska!?!… #loligarchy
More excellent work from @ErinBanco & @woodruffbets… If they weren’t so litigious, Thiel & the Mooch (& Hyperloop) would prolly also feature prominently in this chapter of Dmietriev’s adventures. #spectre
@ErinBanco @woodruffbets And then today, another Russian (former deputy PM)—also endorsed by Putin—took over FIDE:) Next year in Jerusalem I guess? Wonder if Thiel & Milner will meet up for a rematch with Peskov?… #spectre
If you really want to squeeze #SPECTRE, sieze their real estate:)

And all this because Mnuchin accidentally sanctioned Deripaska!
LOL: I misspelled seize!?!

As per ⬆️, an excellent post by @katiezavadski, examining RDIF & Dmietiev! And a great thread follows. Hope to see Scaramucci, Thiel & Goldman Sachs looped in, just in time for Davos!
@katiezavadski So T-rump, Scaramucci & Mnuchin are going to #WEF2018. What about Schwarzman, Bonderman, Black & or WEF Young Global Leaders Dmietriev & Thiel? Or Milner? Is there an RDIF reunion scheduled?

Also, out of curiousity, any chess tourneys or events scheduled?
@katiezavadski Wonder if Scaramucci can get another reporter canned for accurately reporting on what he said in public at #WEF, like he did last year? Or were his legal threats to CNN enough to prevent anyone from taking the risk? Are the Mooch & Thiel now press-proof?

Thinking a lot lately about the VIPization of American culture & how its displaced the notion of equality. Curious about when this started..
I'd like to read a history of VIP sections:)When did they become mainstream/acceptable/legitimate? How are they justified to kids?Any recs?
By legitimizing VIP sections, the #loligarchy has commoditized inequality & aspiration & even my hypocrisy;) Can't we do & build better?

So, some dude in Bristol Farms just asked me if I was in #HatefulEight - his wife thought I was Jennifer Jason Leigh! #flattered #yearmade 💗
I clicked on this because I am vain, but loved this interview with Jennifer Jason Leigh…
just remembered: years ago, in Thailand, a couple said they thought they recognized me from the movie SingleWhiteFemale.Was I Bridget Fonda?

Why is O'Malley still running? There is no way a white man will be either Hillary's (Castro) or Bernie's (Warren?) choice for VP. #DemDebate
"You'll be very happy...I'll let you talk then" #shhhO'Malley
I still wouldn't recognize O'Malley if I saw him in the supermarket. #DemDebate

yes...which is why the OpenAI team's lack of diversity is so discomfiting....
Long @NewYorker profile on Bostrom & the state of AI; not a single woman (unnamed wife aside) mentioned or quoteILtp
If OpenAI is not committed to offering open access to their data, is the "Open" just sqLi4KSCoJ

Despite what its marketing suggests, Anomalisa is as heartwarming or life-affirming/life-changing as an episode of The Affair. (aka its not)
(Anomalisa is still an incredible film-but, "the most human film" it is not...its more man than human...& really, he could be Noah Solloway)
The Walk is pretty great-hoping its love letter to the World Trade Center might just change my visual memory of those buildings..
