‘Destitute’ Roger Stone schedules speaking engagement at strip club in desperate bid to pay legal fees

Published

on

According to a report at the Daily Beast, Donald Trump confidant Roger Stone is deeply in debt due to legal fees he has incurred and is finding it harder and harder to raise cash now that a judge has restricted what he can say publically.

Stone, who is scheduled to appear in court on charges of lying and witness tampering in special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation into criminality in Trump’s campaign, has managed to book a speaking gig at a Richmond, Virginia strip club.

According to the Beast, Stone claims he is broke after being released on $250,000 bond, and that he is only trying to raise cash.

“He’s still talking, and still pulling in much-needed money from public appearances like his upcoming meet-and-greet at Paper Moon strip club in Richmond next month,” the Beast’s Kelly Weill reports. “Some local activists want to put an end to the appearance, citing a violent ultra-nationalist group that often acts as Stone’s security force, the Proud Boys.”

According to the booker who is bringing Stone to town, he and his guest are both on the receiving end of threats from locals.

“We have our own security, and Roger Stone’s a professional,” Mike Dickinson explained.

The Beast also reports that Stone’s appearance likely will draw protesters, with Twitter user @TheQueerCrimer, making threats, writing: “Bringing a fascist fuck magnet into my city is hardly comparable to television. Your actions have consequences.”

‘Names are going to start coming out’: New report says more elites will be exposed in the Epstein case — and ‘DC is on edge’

Published

on

Will other powerful people — presumably men — get taken down as a result of the sex trafficking case against Jeffrey Epstein?

That’s the hope of many closer followers of the story, but it’s far from clear what, if any, fallout there will be. Epstein’s connections to Presidents Bill Clinton and Donald Trump have raised suspicions about potential evidence of their wrongdoing, such suspicions remain unproven. Alan Dershowitz has already faced accusations of being involved in Epstein’s crimes, though he denies the charge vigorously.

But a new report from Vanity Fair’s Gabriel Sherman says that “DC is on edge” over the Epstein case, and any elites who have run in his circles could be involved. Dozens of girls, if not more, are believed to be involved in his alleged sex trafficking, and lawyers for some of the women who have accused Epstein are strongly suggesting that other high-profile figures will be implicated.

‘It’s so un-American’: Internet scorches Trump supporters for racist chants of ‘Send her back!’

Published

on

The ignoble highlight of President Donald Trump's rally in Greenville, North Carolina on Wednesday was when his fans doubled down on his racist attacks on four Democratic congresswomen of color and targeted Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN), chanting "Send her back! Send her back!"

Political commentators of all stripes were gobsmacked by the crowd's naked racism — and buried them in condemnation:

The crowd at Trump’s rally chanting “send her back” after the President viciously and dishonestly attacked Ilhan Omar is one of the most chilling and horrifying things I’ve ever seen in politics.

Jeffrey Epstein wasn’t even a competent investor: report

Published

on

There can be no doubt that high-powered hedge fund manager Jeffrey Epstein would rather the public know him for his prominence and success as an investor than for the allegations of child sex trafficking, for which he has now been indicted and faces life in prison. And there has for years been mystique surrounding Epstein's business — his wealth fund is so exclusive that it reportedly requires a billion dollars up front from clients.

But according to the Dow Jones' periodical Barron's, Epstein may not even be good at that.
