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.

In a letter sent to the National Governors Association, an industry group representing many of the largest retailers in the U.S. asked the country's governors to mandate and enforce rules requiring people to wear masks at all times while in public.

With the coronavirus spiking dramatically in some states, the Retail Industry Leaders Association, which represents Target and Home Depot among others, sent the letter on Monday, reports CBS News.

Trump is betting on reckless approach to win in November

Published

on

On the Fourth of July, a day meant to celebrate American independence, Donald Trump once again focused on creating a racist spectacle. Despite concerns about spreading the coronavirus and starting wildfires, Trump insisted on having a fireworks-heavy celebration at Mount Rushmore in South Dakota, which was clearly a campaign rally no matter how much the taxpayers were bilked for it. Of course, the president's speech was pure culture-war vitriol, complete with classic Trumpian projection, this time when he called anti-racist activists "fascists," an extraordinary word choice that obviously better suits him.
