More National Enquirer blackmail bombshells predicted after alleged Bezos extortion bid massively backfires

Published

on

The major scandal brewing around the National Enquirer’s apparent attempt to blackmail Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos may be about to get even more explosive.

A source described as “familiar with the National Enquirer’s operation” tells CNN’s Oliver Darcy that Bezos’ decision to go public with the Enquirer’s failed extortion bid is going to embolden more people who have been targeted by the publication in the past to come forward.

“It will all come out now,” predicted the source, who also said that they were familiar with more people who had been subjected to treatment similar to what happened to Bezos.

So far, New Yorker reporter Ronan Farrow, as well as MSNBC’s Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski, have all accused the National Enquirer of trying to blackmail them by vowing to publish damaging stories about them unless they agreed to their demands.

Scarborough and Brzezinski went so far as to accuse President Donald Trump of urging the Enquirer to threaten to publish information about their relationship unless they gave him more positive coverage, although the president denied these allegations.

Trump is a longtime ally of David Pecker, the CEO of National Enquirer parent company American Media Inc., who for years ran “catch-and-kill” operations to stop damaging stories from being published about the president.

"Another crucial test was successfully conducted at the Sohae Satellite Launching Ground from 22:41 to 22:48 on December 13," a spokesman for the North's National Academy of Defence Science said in a statement carried by the official KCNA news agency.

US-China trade deal gets tepid reception

Published

on

US officials announced a truce in the trade war with China with much fanfare, but economists and trade experts call it largely a victory for Beijing.

After a dispute that raged for close to two years, with several fumbled efforts at a resolution, the US agreed to cancel planned tariffs and rollback others immediately, without a similar commitment from China to lift tariffs it imposed on the US.

"Pardon me if I don't pop champagne, but aside from a cessation of continued escalation, there is not much worth cheering," leading China expert Scott Kennedy said in an analysis of the agreement.
