Trump lawyer arranged $130,000 payment
for porn star´s silence about alleged sexual
encounter with president: Report

Washington Examiner [DC], by Caitlin Yilek

Original Article

Posted By:LittleHoodedMonk, 1/13/2018 5:31:51 AM

A lawyer for President Trump reportedly arranged a $130,000 payment to a former porn star just weeks before the 2016 presidential election to stay quiet about an alleged sexual encounter with Trump. People familiar with the matter told the Wall Street Journal that Trump’s longtime lawyer Michael Cohen arranged a payment to Stephanie Clifford in October 2016 during negotiations of a nondisclosure agreement. Clifford, 38, has told people privately that she had a sexual encounter with Trump after they met in July 2006 in Lake Tahoe. Trump married his wife, Melania, in 2005. Trump denied all allegations of

Comments:
This story is originally penned by the sanctimonious Wall Street Journal that went to great lengths to destroy the Clinton administration before and during his presidency as the claims of rape and adultery have surrounded his legacy. S/O. True or not, this should send a shiver down the spines of powerful men today who engage with these working girls today. Has the great WSJ gone into competition with the National Enquirer for breaking tabloid "fake news"? (I feel dirty posting this article.)

I had a revelation this morning. I read the title and automatically decided this story was garbage. No consideration if it was true, just dismissed it.

The media has written so many things about PDJT that have been false, they have lost their reputations.

The media has destroyed itself. People will no longer assume what they read in the papers or on the internet is true. They have inoculated him with these stories.

Of course, liberals will believe because it “ feels right”.

This is the Examiner reporting on the WSJ, not the Examiner reporting on the perp.

It´s what Hillary and Fusion GPS did; they tell 3 foreign powers that Trump fornicated, then send 3 different agents to ask the same foreign powers if they have any evidence Trump fornicated. Then Hillary and co. breathlessly run to the WAPO, or NYT, or WSJ, and declaim, "Trump cheated on his wife. We have 3 separate foreign spy agencies to back us up!!"

To the Media and Hillco: "May the bird of paradise fly up your nose . . . "

One person was killed and at least nine others were injured in a shooting in eastern Toronto, authorities said Sunday night. Toronto Paramedic Services said the shooting was reported at 10:02 p.m. ET in Greektown, a neighborhood also known as Greektown on the Danforth. One person was pronounced dead at the scene, while six others were transported to a trauma center and a seventh was taken to a pediatric trauma center. (Snip) The Canadian Broadcasting Corp. quoted authorities as saying the shooting was no longer active, but no other details were immediately available, including the ages and sexes of the victims.

Papa John’s board OKs ‘poison pill’

The boardroom battle at Papa John’s got a little uglier on Sunday. The pizza chain’s board, looking to further distance itself from the company’s controversial founder, voted on Sunday to adopt a poison pill to keep John Schnatter from gaining a controlling stake in the Louisville, Kent., company, according to a report. (Snip) Schnatter, who founded the company with a single oven in his father’s tavern in the 1980s, stepped down as chairman earlier this month after it was learned that he used the N-word during an internal conference call in May. Schnatter owns 29 percent of the company — and has said he will not step away

The weekend release of a highly-redacted version of the FBI´s application for a Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act warrant to wiretap onetime Trump foreign policy adviser Carter Page has renewed the argument over the Nunes memo — the brief report produced by House Intelligence Committee Chairman Rep. Devin Nunes detailing problems in the application. (Snip) And doing so shows the Nunes memo was overwhelmingly accurate. Perhaps some Democrats do not believe it should have been written, or they dispute what it included and left out, or they do not agree with its conclusions, but it was in fact accurate.

Berkeley Heights, NJ - President Trump claimed without evidence on Sunday that his administration’s release of top-secret documents related to the surveillance of a former campaign aide had confirmed that the Justice Department and the F.B.I. had “misled the courts” in the early stages of the Russia investigation. “Looking more & more like the Trump Campaign for President was illegally being spied upon (surveillance) for the political gain of Crooked Hillary Clinton and the DNC,” Mr. Trump wrote on Twitter.

Beating your wife is worse than protesting during the national anthem. So, too, is sexually assaulting a woman. While that might seem obvious, it needs to be clarified given The Associated Press´ report Thursday that the Miami Dolphins are now including protesting during the anthem on their list of "conduct detrimental to the club." Under NFL rules, that´s an offense punishable by a suspension of up to four games. The Dolphins later told the AP that "all options are still open." But to give you an idea of how heinous at least one NFL team sees trying to draw attention to racial and economic inequality, a four-game suspension is

Washington, DC - President Donald Trump repeatedly promised during his campaign to nominate Supreme Court justices who would overturn Roe v. Wade. Now with another nominee to the Supreme Court in his hands, abortion rights advocates worry that conservative dream will come true. But what needs to happen in order for Roe, the 1973 court decision that legalized abortion nationwide, to be overturned is more complex than it might seem. And if it happens, what comes next isn’t black and white either. Trump nominated Judge Brett Kavanaugh, a George W. Bush–era nominee with an extensive record

Jerusalem - Israel’s parliament approved a controversial piece of legislation on Thursday that defines the country as the nation-state of the Jewish people but which critics warn sidelines minorities. The government says the bill, passed in the early morning hours, will merely enshrine into law Israel’s existing character. Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu called its passage a “historic moment in the history of Zionism and the history of the state of Israel.” “Israel is the nation-state of the Jewish people, which honors the individual rights of all its citizens,” he said. “I repeat this is our state.

The US administration of President Donald Trump on Thursday proposed sweeping changes to the 45-year-old Endangered Species Act which would roll back protections for threatened animals, sparking alarm by environmentalists. The 1973 federal law is considered the gold standard for global environmental protection, and is credited with saving dozens of key species from extinction, including bald eagles, manatees, humpback whales and American alligators. One proposed change, announced by the Interior and Commerce Departments, would remove a sentence that aims to separate economic impacts from decisions about animal protection. Other provisions would vary protections for animals on a case-by-case

Most House Democrats voted “present” Tuesday on a resolution aimed at forcing them to clarify whether they support U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement, after some Democrats have criticized the agency´s role in enforcing U.S. immigration laws. The House passed a nonbinding resolution saying lawmakers support the "officers and personnel who carry out the important mission of the United States Immigration and Customs Enforcement." A two-thirds majority was needed to pass it, and because Democrats voted "present" instead of "no," it passed easily in a 244-35 vote. The final vote saw just 18 Democrats vote for the

Russian meddling in the 2016 presidential election wasn’t as one-sided as Special Counsel Robert Mueller charges in his latest indictment. The Russian military spy agency that Mueller says hacked the Democratic National Committee also penetrated the computer systems of the Republican National Committee using fake emails in a phishing scheme, U.S. officials say. This evidence challenges the narrative, now reinforced by Mueller’s indictments, that Russia’s scheme was solely aimed at damaging Hillary Clinton. “RNC emails were stolen through the same spearphishing scams used against Democrats,” a senior U.S. intelligence official familiar with the investigation told RealClearInvestigations.

CLEARWATER — Pinellas County Sheriff Bob Gualtieri announced Friday that his agency will not arrest a man deputies say shot and killed another man during an argument over a handicap parking space. The incident falls under Florida’s self-defense law known as "stand your ground," the sheriff said during a news conference. The law gives immunity to those in fear of their lives who use force to defend themselves. The shooting "is within the bookends of ‘stand your ground’ and within the bookends of force being justified," the sheriff said, later adding, "I’m not saying I agree with it, but I don’t make

DUBAI - Iranian President Hassan Rouhani on Sunday cautioned U.S. President Donald Trump about pursuing hostile policies against Tehran, saying “America should know ... war with Iran is the mother of all wars,” but he did not rule out peace between the two countries, either. Iran faces increased U.S. pressure and looming sanctions after Trump’s decision to withdraw the United States from a 2015 international deal over Iran’s nuclear program. Addressing a gathering of Iranian diplomats, Rouhani said: “Mr Trump, don’t play with the lion’s tail, this would only lead to regret,” the state new agency IRNA reported. “America should know that
